In joining the fun of a “Day Without” campaign I am starting a new “Day Without” campaign called “A Day Without a Day Without” campaign.
I know it is hard to imagine living a day without being reminded of the sensitivities and abuses faced by our perpetually aggrieved brethren but I am in desperate need of a “Day Without White Heterosexual Christian Guilt.”
After my “A Day Without A Day Without” campaign I am proposing some additional “Day Without” campaigns to fill our annual calendars.
Please help me complete our 365 day schedule.
A Day Without an Employer
(Lets make this one a week or two just to really make the case)

Fighting a war on two fronts! Some Muslims believe “we shouldn’t talk about anti-blackness within the community, because we’re under siege by Islamophobes. This is not the right time to air internal laundry.” – Kameelah Rashad, University of Pennsylvania.
Yup, you know it is true! Or, why would Somali Muslims, for example, want to build their own mosques in a community where the Arab Muslims already had one?

Also, according to The Atlantic there is a split between immigrant Muslims (many black) and the long-established (well-off) Arabs in America. The tension within the ‘community’ burst in to full-flower, we are told, at a December Muslim conference in Toronto.
Rashad says she is fighting a war on two fronts—racism within Muslim ‘community’ and Islamophobia everywhere else.
The article is a bit disjointed (or maybe it is me!). Or, could that be because the author can’t quite present the politically-incorrect information in a straightforward manner?
[BTW, when you have a few minutes look around at the many historical reports about how light-skinned Arab Muslims enslaved Africans for over a thousand years.]
Here are a few snips of Emma Green’s article at The Atlantic [emphasis is mine]:
Muslim Americans Are United by Trump—and Divided by Race
When weary Muslims gathered in Toronto in December for an annual retreat, marking the end of a tumultuous U.S. election year, they probably didn’t expect the event to turn into a referendum on racial tensions within the American Muslim community. But it did.
Even though slightly less than one-third of American Muslims are black, according to Pew Research Center, American Muslims are most often represented in the media as Arab or South Asian immigrants. The distinction between the African-American Muslim experience and that of their immigrant co-religionists has long been a source of racial tension in the Muslim community, but since the election, things have gotten both better and worse. While some Muslims seem to be paying more attention to racism because of Donald Trump, others fear that any sign of internal division is dangerous for Muslims in a time of increased hostility.
While the Toronto conference was upsetting, Evans [Ubaydullah Evans, the executive director of the American Learning Institute for Muslims, who is black] said, he doesn’t think it’s representative of the biggest racial problems in the American Muslim community. White racism toward black people is “not the kind of racism that circumscribes my life as an American Muslim,” he told me. “It’s the social racism I experience from people of Arab descent, of Southeast Asian descent. This is the racism no one is talking about.” [Wait! I thought only white Europeans could be racists! Arabs too?—ed]
The wave of immigration that shaped today’s American Muslim population began in the 1960s, after Congress lifted previous race-based restrictions on immigration. In many ways, this surge was directly connected to the work of black Muslims and others involved in the civil-rights movement: The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 allowed far greater numbers of people from Asia and Africa to emigrate to the U.S. As of 2014, an estimated 61 percent of Muslims were immigrants, according to Pew, and another 17 percent were the children of immigrants. Many of the perceived racial tensions among Muslims come from conflicts between these immigrant communities and non-immigrants, who are often black.
Omar Suleiman (Dallas Imam): American Muslim population segregated by ethnicity and income.
“Immigrant Muslims had a convenient comfort zone,” said Omar Suleiman, an imam based in Dallas with a large online following. As each new immigrant community established its own mosques and community centers, portions of the Muslim American population became segregated by ethnicity and income.
For non-black Muslims who grew up in the suburbs, attended private schools, and rarely encountered black Muslims in their mosques, it’s easy “to internalize many of the poisonous notions about the black community that … diminish the pain of those communities,” he said.
“I think a lot of African American Muslims see a hypocrisy sometimes with immigrant Muslims,” said Saba Maroof, a Muslim psychiatrist with a South Asian background who lives in Michigan. “We say that Muslims are all equal in the eyes of God, that racism doesn’t exist in Islam.” And yet, cases of overt racism aren’t uncommon, like when South Asian or Arab immigrant parents don’t want their kids to marry black Muslims. “That happened in my family,” she said.
Some Muslims believe “we shouldn’t talk about anti-blackness within the community, because we’re under siege by Islamophobes. This is not the right time to air internal laundry,” Rashad [Kameelah Rashad, a black Muslim chaplain at the University of Pennsylvania] said. But “if I have to contend with anti-Muslim bigotry outside of the Muslim community, and within my own community, I’m having to push back on anti-black racism, I’m kind of fighting a war on two fronts.”

THE BATTLE OF ROTTERDAM Dutch riot cops use batons, water cannon and horse charges to clear thousands of Turkish protesters in Rotterdam
DUTCH riot police have broken up protests by supporters of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after Turkish ministers were barred from speaking at a rally in the Netherlands.
Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam last night after cops prevented Turkey’s family minister from entering the building.
The Washington Post, in a lengthy story written before the Battle of Rotterdam last night, tells us what is at stake on Wednesday:
Anti-immigrant anger threatens to remake the liberal Netherlands
AMSTERDAM — Xandra Lammers lives on an island in Amsterdam, the back door of her modern and spacious four-bedroom house opening onto a graceful canal where ducks, swans and canoes glide by.
The translation business she and her husband run from their home is thriving. The neighborhood is booming, with luxury homes going up as fast as workers can build them, a quietly efficient tramway to speed residents to work in the world-renowned city center, and parks, bike paths, art galleries, beaches and cafes all within a short amble.
By outward appearances, Lammers is living the Dutch dream. But in the 60-year-old’s telling, she has been dropped into the middle of a nightmare, one in which Western civilization is under assault from the Muslim immigrants who have become her neighbors.
“The influx has been too much. The borders should close,” said Lammers, soft-spoken with pale blue eyes and brown hair that frames a deceptively serene-looking face. “If this continues, our culture will cease to exist.”
The stakes have risen sharply as Europeans’ anti-establishment anger has swelled. In interviews across the Netherlands in recent days, far-right voters expressed stridently nationalist, anti-immigrant views that were long considered fringe but that have now entered the Dutch mainstream.
Voters young and old, rich and poor, urban and rural said they would back the Geert Wilders-led Freedom Party — no longer the preserve of the “left-behinds” — which promises to solve the country’s problems by shutting borders, closing mosques and helping to dismantle the European Union.

“They’ve found a very powerful narrative,” said Koen Damhuis, a researcher at the European University Institute who studies the far right. “By creating a master conflict of the national versus the foreign, they’re able to attract support from all elements of society.”
[ … ]
“The main issue is identity,” said Joost Niemöller, a journalist and author who has written extensively on Wilders and is sympathetic to his cause. “People feel they’re losing their Dutch identity and Dutch society. The neighborhoods are changing. Immigrants are coming in. And they can’t say anything about it because they’ll be called racist. So they feel helpless. Because they feel helpless, they get angry.”
Echoing a theme I’ve heard on my travels everywhere in America:
“A government has to treat its own people correctly before accepting new ones. First, you must take care of your own.”
And if the government fails, Meulendijks has dark visions of what’s to come.
“I think Holland will need a civil war,” he said, “between the people who don’t belong here and the real people.”
Americans should be enormously thankful that we have a window on our own future as we watch the invasion of the European continent. And, now that Donald Trump is in office, we, God-willing, will not go down the path Europe has been on for way too long.
Go herefor our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive. And, here for The Netherlands, Geert Wilders, here.
BTW, we heard Wilders speakas a side event at CPAC 8 years ago (2009). It was a side event because the organizers of CPAC refused his presence on the main program. (CPAC organizers have been notoriously Republican establishment dolts who never understood where the people were headed on the issues of Islam and immigration.)
NOTE: Ronald Meulendijks has a poster of Geert Wilders in his IJburg apartment. “I think Holland will need a civil war,” he said, “between the people who don’t belong here and the real people.”

“Europe’s simmering backlash against immigration came into sharp relief on Tuesday when the Hungarian Parliament approved the detention of asylum seekers in guarded and enclosed camps on the country’s southern border, in what human rights advocates called a reckless breach of international law.”
According to the Times,
“Prime Minister Viktor Orban justified the measure on the grounds that it would secure the European Union’s borders from migrants and act as a powerful deterrent against migration, which he called the ‘Trojan horse of terrorism.’ ”
The Prime Minister is quoted as saying,
“We are under siege. The flood of migration has slowed down but has not stopped. Laws apply to everyone. This includes those migrants who want to cross Hungary’s border illegally. This is the reality, which cannot be overruled by charming human rights nonsense.”
Unfortunately, it is “charming human rights nonsense” that now informs immigration policy on the political left in the United States, just as it has in most Western European nations. While liberals and Democrats oppose any and all limitations on immigration from majority Muslim countries… in the apparent hope that American Muslims will repay the favor by becoming a reliable Democratic voting bloc… even they express concern over the potential for isolated terror attacks in the near term. What apparently escapes their attention is the clearly stated long term goal of Muslim migration: the complete domination of Islam over all the nations of the world.
In his first speech before a joint session of Congress on February 28, President Trump paused, gazed directly into the camera, and carefully enunciated words that Barack Obama famously refused to utter. He said,
“Our obligation is to serve, protect, and defend the citizens of the United States… We are also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radicalIslamic terrorism.”
However, as appealing and as essential as that resolve might be, by focusing only on the unspeakable atrocities of radical Islamists, we run the risk of overlooking or downplaying what is an even more deadly and more pervasive long term threat: the danger of what Hungarian Prime Minister Orban referred to as the “Trojan horse of terrorism,” the unfettered flow of Muslim migrants and refugees across international frontiers into the Western world.
In his book, Slavery, Terrorism, and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, Dr. Peter Hammond explains something that every Christian, every Jew, and every other non-Muslim on the face of the Earth must understand… which is that Islam does not qualify as a religion in the normally accepted sense of the word. Instead, as a complete legal, political, economic, social, and military system with a religious component, the West’s dangerous flirtation with multiculturalism can only be described as “charming human rights nonsense.” And while most non-Muslims worry about the possibility of being murdered in an isolated “lone wolf” terror attack, they all but ignore the long term implications of Muslim expansionism.
Dr. Hammond explains the process of “stealth jihadism” carried out by muhajirs, or Muslim immigrants. He tells us that “Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.”
In his May 8, 2015 treatise, titled, Islam, Interreligious Dialogue, and Evangelization,Andre Villeneuve, Ph.D. of Saint John Vianney Seminary, describes the ecumenical schizophrenia displayed by the Catholic Church in their approach to Islam in just the past two decades. He quotes Pope Benedict XVI in his Regensburg Lecture of September 12, 2006. Benedict quoted the 14th century Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus, who said,
“Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
However, Villeneuve goes on to describe a contrary view held by the current prelate, Pope Francis. He writes,
“After praising the commitment to prayer, faith, devotion, and ethical values of many Muslims, (Pope) Francis encourages Christians to adopt a welcoming attitude towards the increasing number of Muslim immigrants in traditionally Christian countries, while asking for a reciprocal freedom of worship for Christians living in Muslim countries.”
Reciprocal freedom of worship? It is, at best, a naive pipe-dream. While a few majority Muslim nations have tolerated Christian congregations in their midst, many of those Christians are now victims of genocide. To expect that those attitudes will ever change is worse than naïve… it is dangerous and it is suicidal.
Christians are taught from early childhood to heed the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:39. In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said,
“But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”
As the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, Pope Francis is obliged to instruct his flock to “turn the other cheek.” However, while that counter-intuitive advice may be valuable to me in a one-on-one relationship with my next door neighbor or a co-worker, just how far does it go? In other words, how are we to react when all of western civilization hangs in the balance?
On September 3, 2011, Swiss parliamentarian Oskar Freysinger, of the Christian Democratic People’s Party addressed some very important thoughts to a Berlin audience… thoughts that the American people would do well to hear and heed in 2017. He said, in part, “My dear Berlin friends, I come to you today as a neighbor and as a concerned friend…”
Referring to the rules imposed on non-Muslims living in majority Muslim nations, Freysinger said, “The dhimmi attitude of Europeans sustained a wound which must not heal over if the millennia-old European civilization is to survive, for Europe is more than a plot of land, more than a continent, more than the sum of its countries. Europe is an idea, a cultural landscape, an intellectual space shaped by history. Europe is the cradle of the modern constitutional state, the treasure house of human rights, of freedom of opinion and expression.
“This is ever more strongly endangered by the possibility that our political elite will bend their necks before (an Islamic) religious dogma that is alien to our intellectual history, our values, and our constitutional state. This dogma is gnawing away at the pillars of our system of laws, wherever it is allowed some space. This dogma demands total obedience from its followers.
“They are in no case to integrate into our value system. That would be like treason and can even be punished with death. They are expected to conquer our intellectual home, make the Western world subject. Not with tanks, rockets, or riflemen. Not through brutal revolution. No, Islam is in no hurry. It has an eternity. A long process of softening up and leisurely occupation of our child-poor society is foreseen. The Islamic doctrine is expected to gradually creep into everyday life and Fortress Europe will crumble from within.
“And what are we doing? We are allowing this violent doctrine, unhindered in cultural ghettos, to strain at toppling the nation of laws… When women are beaten and whole city districts are taken over, we look the other way. We believe we can soften the power hunger of the holy warriors with welfare money. We believe we can buy peace! What lunacy! No one fingers the Prophet’s beard. Fanatics cannot be bought. Germany should know that better than any country in the world…”
He concluded by saying, “If we lose this battle there will be no second chance, for Islam does not give back what it has conquered. So I summon all the humanists of this continent not to keep their heads in the sand and to resist the Islamic dogma’s drive to conquest. Let us stand together and uncompromisingly insist upon the primacy of our civil law over any religious dogma. Let us find our way back to our precious intellectual heritage. Islam is only as strong as we are weak”
It is estimated that, by the end of this century, in the absence of some unforeseen divine intervention, Muslims will exceed 50 percent of the world’s population. But long before that time, it is reasonable to assume that most of 21st century Western civilization will have become unraveled and our descendants will find themselves facing a squalid 7th century lifestyle. As Prime Minister Orban so aptly describes it, the current level of Muslim immigration into the West can best be described as the “Trojan horse of terrorism.” Left unfettered, it can have no good end. As matters now stand, we cannot assume that the Europe we have known and loved for many centuries, and from which our forbears emerged, will continue to exist beyond ten or twenty more years.
While Europe may be the “cradle of the modern constitutional state, the treasure house of human rights, of freedom of opinion and expression,” the United States is the laboratory in which those concepts were tested and proven. That fact, alone, gives Islamists all the justification they need to see us wiped from the face of the Earth. There is far too much at stake to be gambled away in some “charming human rights” experiment, in a contest we cannot win. And if we are so unwise as to invite the forces of Islam to coexist with us, on our own soil, then we too, like Europe, will crumble from within.

Listen to this March 9, 2017 Israel News Talk Radio –Beyond the Matrix program with co-hosts Ira Michaelson and Rod Bryant. They were joined by their frequent new co-host Jerry Gordon, a senior editor of the New English Review, to discuss the issue of the rise of anti-Semitism around the world. In light of the recent desecration of Jewish cemeteries and the threats against Jewish Community Centers across America, one has to wonder if these are isolated events, or a picture of things to come.
Ira read some of the bizarre tweets and a string of 8 Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) CC hate calls by alleged suspect Juan Thompson, the fake news artist fired by lefty on-line publication, The Intercept. He was trying to say that his white gal friend was the perpetrator of the anti-Semitic calls to those JCCs. He was arrested by the FBI in St. Louis and could face up a sentence of up to five years upon conviction at a trial in the Brooklyn Eastern Federal District court in New York.
As to the balance of those 120 JCC hoax bombing calls, we spoke of who might be the source of the robo calls from offshore that might surprise you. Moreover, we asked why it took the FBI and the Justice department nearly two months before they cranked up an investigation.
We talked about why Ms. Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn born American of Palestinian origins, an item in yesterday’s International Women Strike protest rally in New York, and other Muslims raising hundreds of thousands of funds for repair and replacement of tombstones in those desecrated Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis, Philadelphia and Brooklyn. That perhaps it was not so much an act of humanity, but rather Islamic taqiyya as they may be fearful the Trump Administration might ban Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups. After all Sarsour is virulently anti-Israel, believes that Sharia is ‘great’ and that Israelis are “white Supremacists” oppressing Blacks and Palestinians. Then ask her about her relatives raising funds for Hamas.
Ira and Rod commiserated about good Israel- supporting Muslims that they have had on the program. I referenced chaver Dr. M. Zhudi Jasser, Canadian Raheel Raza and American journalist and author Asra Nomani as leader of the international Muslim Reform Movement. They all oppose political Islam, Sharia, the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates here in North America. I pointed out that Asra Nomani was the colleague of the late Danny Pearl, who disappeared in Lahore, Pakistan in October 2002, only to be slaughtered by the infamous 9/11 mastermind, Khaled Sheik Mohammed. Nomani led a team of volunteer students at Georgetown University in DC who identified the perpetrators of Pearl’s murder.
Note in particular the discussion about encounters with US Customs and Border Protection agents by Israeli Rabbi Moshe Dror Cassuto and his wife and Ira Michaelson passing through JFK to Rome and hence to Israel on their recent world tour. Ira was amazed at how Muslim women in full Burqas with slits for eyes were cleared by the CBP, and this was after the temporary lifting of the travel ban.
Then there was the fabulous reminiscence by Ira of a fabled Bush I White House friend of Ira’s during Bush I who became an Evangelical Christian Zionist. But we also discussed FBI anti-Semitism during Bush II when then Counterterrorism Assistant Director was looking for an Israeli ‘mole’ besides Jonathan Pollard. Lest we forget the FBI and some other members of the Intel Community would hire qualified Jewish Arabic and Farsi speakers after 9/11.
Then there is the question whether the anti-Semitic ‘deep state’ at both State and the CIA state remain despite the Trump Administration support for Israel. Witness anti -Israel Pentagon Secretary Mattis and his recent hire, former Obama State Department Bureau of Near East Assistant Secretary and Ambassador to Cairo, Anne Patterson.

Khizr Khan first rose to national prominence when he verbally attacked Donald Trump during the Democratic National Convention stating that Trump had sacrificed nothing and questioned whether Trump had ever read the Constitution. We will discuss the Constitution at the conclusion of my commentary.
Khan is a Harvard educated lawyer whose son Humayun Khan, a captain in the U.S. Army died in Iraq in 2004. He had graduated from the University of Virginia.
Khizr Khan has accused President Trump of discriminating against Muslims and once again, made headlines when Ramsay Talks, the speakers bureau who purportedly had arranged a speaking engagement in Toronto for Khan, posted a notice that a March 7 speaking event was cancelled blaming a purported notification that his “travel privileges are being reviewed”:
Khizr Khan Event Cancellation:
Late Sunday evening Khizr Khan, an American citizen for over 30 years, was notified that his travel privileges are being reviewed. As a consequence, Mr. Khan will not be traveling to Toronto on March 7th to speak about tolerance, understanding, unity and the rule of law. Very regretfully, Ramsay Talks must cancel its luncheon with Mr. Khan.
Guests will be given full refunds.
Mr. Khan offered his sincere apologies to all those who made plans to attend on March 7th. He said: “This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all omg fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad. I have not been given any reason as to why. I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future.
Khan said in a statement that he was confused about why his travel status changed, without explaining in detail the circumstance.
“This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad,” Khan said. “I have not been given any reason as to why. I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future.”
It’s not clear exactly what Ramsay Talks meant by “traveling privileges,” and the group did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Khan.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection official, citing privacy issues, declined to discuss Khan specifically but appeared to dispute the report, telling POLITICO that CBP doesn’t contact travelers in advance of their travel abroad.
“With respect to Global Entry or trusted traveler membership, CBP’s engagement is about the status of membership in the program, not any particular travel itself,” the official said. “Of course, any U.S. citizen with a passport may travel without trusted traveler status. All individuals are subject to inspection departing or upon arrival to the United States.”
In rushing to report on this, the media ignored the laws that address the issuance of passports to U.S. citizens and the admission of U.S. citizens seeking to enter the United States. Apparently
the overwhelming visceral urge to attack the U.S. government under the Trump administration was apparently too great for the journalists to take a breath and do their homework.
American citizens who possess a valid passport or equivalent travel document do not require the permission of the United States government to travel outside the United States. The only time that any such restriction might be imposed is if a citizen of the United States has been convicted of certain crimes or is being prosecuted for allegedly committing serious crime(s) and a court has required that such a citizen surrenders his/her passport to prevent international flight to evade prosecution.
As for United States citizens returning to the United States, two documents are worth considering because they provide verification of a fundamental fact, American citizens may never be barred from reentering the United States under any conditions, whatsoever.
The official website of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provides information about the Immigration Inspection Program and includes the following excerpt:
Individuals seeking entry into the United States are inspected at Ports of Entry (POEs) by CBP officers who determine their admissibility. The inspection process includes all work performed in connection with the entry of aliens and United States citizens into the United States, including preinspection performed by the Immigration Inspectors outside the United States.
“An officer is responsible for determining the nationality and identity of each applicant for admission and for preventing the entry of ineligible aliens, including criminals, terrorists, and drug traffickers, among others. U.S. citizens are automatically admitted upon verification of citizenship; aliens are questioned and their documents are examined to determine admissibility based on the requirements of the U.S. immigration law.”
When you are convinced that an applicant for admission is a citizen of the United States, the examination is terminated. This is not to say that your role as an inspector is always completed at that time. Listing of the subject in a lookout system may dictate further action, such as notifying Customs or another agency of the person’s entry.
It must be emphasized that the grounds of inadmissibility contained in 212(a) of the INA are applicable only to aliens. Consequently, the examination of a person claiming to be a United States citizen is limited to matters required to establish present citizenship. Once you are satisfied the person being examined is a U.S. citizen and any required lookout query has been completed, the examination is over.
The only question the remains is why Kahn would make these claims. Were there not enough customers willing to pay to hear him speak about “tolerance, understanding, unity and the rule of law?”
Was he convinced that the sequel to his appearance at the Democratic Convention where he launched an attack on Donald Trump might propel him into a politically prominent role in the Democratic Party?
Was he seeking to create the illusion that the United States has turned into a police state and Americans had lost their freedoms under the month-old Trump administration?
Whatever his motivation, it is clear that Mr. Kahn is hardly eager to promote “tolerance, understanding, unity and the rule of law.”
The death of Kahn’s son is a tragedy and he must be remembered as a hero who died defending our nation. But Mr. Kahn needs to understand that by creating a false claim about some contrived review of his “travel privileges” does not honor his son’s memory and certainly does not help to bring all Americans together but is divisive- perhaps intentionally divisive.
It is likely that Khizr Khan and his wife legally immigrated to the United States, to obviously pursue his dreams and apparently prospered as a result.
Mr. Khan is certainly right about the Constitution guarantees of equal protection under the law, but also includes
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Thousands of innocent people have died at the hands of terrorists operating in the United States in a series of deadly attacks carried out by radical Islamists who most often entered the United States through ports of entry.
The measures that Donald Trump called for in his campaign and in his subsequent executive orders, including “extreme vetting” have been consistent with the demands of the Constitution and with the findings and recommendations published in The 9/11 Commission Report and the official report “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.”
The relative ease with which the hijackers obtained visas and entered the United States underscores the importance of travel to their terrorist operations. In this section we explore the evolution of terrorist travel tactics and organization. We begin with terrorist plots in the 1990s and conclude with the 9/11 attack.
3.2 Terrorist Travel Tactics by Plot includes the following:
Although there is evidence that some land and sea border entries without inspection occurred, these conspirators mainly subverted the legal entry system by entering at airports. In doing so, they relied on a wide variety of fraudulent documents, on aliases, and on government corruption.

FISA warrants and the investigation into whether Obama ordered one is hog wash at the highest level.
Today my dad, who is 78, called me and asked a vital question about the FISA warrants and criminal warrants the Democrats and Republicans are fighting about. He said,
“Dave you were a Federal Agent, if your boss wanted you to carryout a task did you ask him for his written authority to do so?”
“Of course not, when we received orders from our superiors we carried them out without question.”
He then said,
“Don’t you think if Obama wanted something done like wiretaps that he knew were wrong, unethical, and criminal that he would not write anything down he would simply inform his subordinates to carry the action out and it would filter to the street level people to carry out the specific orders?”
My father a 78 year old man with limited education figured out the way criminals do things without having a criminal history, law enforcement training political or journalist experiences. In today’s world high level criminals understand that using the computers or writing letters to their subordinates is public and open information, even at the classified level numerous people can read them. Of course there his a Congressional investigation any and all written communications can be and will be obtained.
I was a Federal Agent for over 15 year with the highest U.S. Government clearances. High level criminals are usually well educated people and they know how to cover themselves from being a target of a civil or criminal investigation.
This is how it would work if Obama wanted ‘Trump Towers’ wiretapped.
Obama would talk secretly in private (outside of the White House office) with a senior government official he trusted and was a hard core liberal themselves. He would discuss what he wanted done and the senior official would channel it down with one on one discussions with other senior officials and finally it would be discussed with CIA/NSA or military intelligence operatives.
Likely the U.S. military were involved with carrying out the orders of the President.
Military personnel will carry out orders without any questions whatsoever. They assume their superior is instructing them todo something tat has been approved. Many times Americans feel the highest feel intelligence people with all the proper clearances and experience are the CIA and NSA. The military are much better prepared and much more close mouthed about what they do than civilian employees of the CIA. They are in the U.S. military and if they leak intelligence they will be court martialed without publicity and they will go to Fort Leavenworth for the rest of their lives. In addition they are more loyal their superiors than the civilians of the CIA and NSA.
It I a 100% certainty that Obama and his staff di not use the FBI. Today the FBI is purely a political machine. The senior staff will burn you in a hard way and have no loyalty to their street level agents.
I cant discuss operations I had in the intelligence field with such operations, but I can say if my Commander brought me and my team to his office and gave us orders to do something we would have done it without question because we believed in his loyalty to our country. This is not always true with civilian intelligence agencies.
In the meantime journalists, their puppet guest speakers, politicians, and other personnel will investigate the wiretapping allegations and conclude they reviewed FISA and criminal files of the FBI and could find no document that links Obama to any wiretapping orders. Of course they will find routine and basic FBI reports that targeted a few low level Trump staff, but will determine no criminal activity was revealed.
Of course Obama had Trump Towers and many other locations wiretapped, but never will there be any evidence found. Seldom do military operations organizations get request to turn over their Top Secret files on such activities of wiretapping. They are never suspected to be the people our senior leaders turn to when they suspect the President of the U.S. has ordered criminal wiretapping orders. If the Navy SEALs (American heroes) and take out Osama Bin Laden do you think they could not be used to tap a few phones.
Wake up FOX News and others. Stop boring us when you know nothing will come of a FISA investigation. Note: Thanks Dad for seeing the reality of what is happening in the world today. Your generation understands and loves America more so than at any other time or group of citizens.
Analysis: Listen to your elders.

Coca-Cola Co has launched a gay-friendly ad in a recent campaign that is winning “praise” for diversity and inclusion.
The minute-long ad features a brother and sister vying for the attention of a handsome pool boy and fighting for the right to offer him an ice-cold Coke.
The ad is a part of the company’s global ‘Taste the Feeling’ campaign, and features a teenage girl eyeing the hunky pool boy from a downstairs window while her brother lustfully watches the boy from upstairs.
The two then race to the refrigerator in an effort to be the first to offer him a cold Coke.
Despite the best efforts of the brother and sister, Mom gets there first and has first dibs on the pool boy.
In a complicated statement, the Coca-Cola PR agency said:
‘We are managing culturally relevant messages organically within our spots not as the main subject of the story but as sub-text.”
Okay, enough of that gibberish. Here’s what you really need to know about this ad campaign. And it’s more than you think.
Most older Americans will be perplexed at the purpose of this new Coca-Cola ad. As well as they should be.
Is this an ad to attract more gays into buying Coca-Cola? Or an ad to indoctrinate young Americans into accepting the gay lifestyle? No doubt this is part of the objective by Coca-Cola’s advertisement team. But those reasons are not the complete, or perhaps even the main, answer.
Young adults run ad agencies, nowadays. And as we all know these young adults have no qualm about using other people’s money (company money) to push their own political/moral beliefs and worldviews on society
But even this is not the compete answer.
Corporations view older Americans as an established, but dying, breed of purchasers. Even if they are offended, they will remain loyal to the product. They key word is “loyal.” That is the objective of ad agencies: to get loyal purchasers. Once you have a loyal buyer, the reasoning goes, that purchaser will ultimately withstand many offenses down the line. You may lose some, but not enough to make a significant dent in profits.
Ad agencies, therefore, must focus on young Americans because they are not yet ‘loyal’ to the product. Being gay-friendly, the reasoning goes, will win over the ‘loyalty’ of the young. And with that loyalty, they will be Coca-Cola purchasers for decades.
And what about those who HAVE ALREADY BEEN loyal for decades? Well, Coca-Cola already has their money…which can now be used to promote an immoral lifestyle to gain the acceptance, love and loyalty of an immoral people.
Most major companies don’t sell you on a product any more; they are in the business of selling you on their beliefs.
Perhaps what’s really sad is that people would buy a product, not because “Coke adds life,” but because “Coke adds perversion.”

Headlines about President Trump’s connection with Russia are all over the world, 24/7. There is some truth to it—the connection of a U.S. President and Russia is reality-with a small correction to the name of the President. It is President Barack Obama, who had constant clandestine ties to Russia. I have been reporting this secret connection since 2008 in my latest two books. The recent Trump tweet about the wiretapping of his campaign by the Obama Administration is the same, a logical and monumental addition to the history of aiding the enemy. This is the moment in history for President Trump to reveal the Truth about Russia, the KGB, and the Soviet Mafia in America…
History of President Reagan and Russia
When a medical doctor treats a patient, he or she fights against a disease and its causes. As a rule, after finding the causes a doctor deals with the disease. That way the patient is cured – his body is healed. These physicians are knowledgeable professionals with the experience to make a correct diagnosis. However, unlike those specialists, the medical profession has another type of doctor—they treat the symptoms of disease. In this case the patient will never be cured and the treatment will never bring healing. This is similar to politicians on the world stage—the leaders of the Western civilization. At this time of war, while we are fighting terrorists, knowledge and the ability to arrive at the correct diagnosis, is only in identifying the enemy. Then we will have the assurance of success and victory in the War on Terror.
A history of America’s presidents shows leaders who, based on their knowledge and ability to correctly assess the world predicament, have united all citizens to rebuff the enemy. Under the leadership of such leaders the country eventually won the war and began the process of healing. Immigrating to the United States in 1981, I watched one great leader. There are no words to express my love for him, because he saved not only America, but the entire planet. His vision of the world, knowledge of the enemy, and guts to deliver the truth made him the greatest leader of the Twentieth Century. President Ronald Reagan unified all Americans; Democrats and Republicans, white, black, Latino, and Asian, by telling the truth in identifying the Soviet Union as the Evil Empire! He was right on all accounts, though many people did not know a lot of information then. It became known later. Yet, trusting the President, the country joined his motto Peace through Strength and the great leader of the twentieth century had been born!
That was written by me at the end of the 20th century. The conclusion is clear—knowledge of the enemy is a must. President Reagan knew the disease and the symptoms– the modus operandi of the KGB and its method and policy of disinformation. Today, in March 2017 we have the exact same predicament only the name of our President has changed. Yet, in addition to that, we gave Russia and Putin twenty-five years to undermine international order and develop the KGB modus operandi and the disease—the ideology of Soviet Fascism. As a result, today we are dealing with the Evil Empire of Global Terrorism and witnessing a political drama of incompetence within some media outlets in covering the world and especially Russia…
Whether President Donald J. Trump is the man of history in the 21st century and the second Ronald Reagan, only the time will tell. He correctly listed American carnage—the symptoms of the disease in his Address to Congress. But, for an unknown to me reason, he has not directly identified the disease, the way President Reagan had done it thirty-six years ago. He did not pronounce the name of the ideology, I have been writing about for the last twenty years—Soviet Fascism. By the way, I have listed some signs of Soviet Fascism on American soil in my column American Carnage, February 11, 2017.
President Trump was telling us that he “inherited a mess.” He is right, but he is not aware of the depth of the mess—the Washington DC swamp is deadly. It is the ideology of Soviet Fascism that makes it deadly. Soviet/Russian subversive activities have never ended: the recent talk on “fake news,” about an alleged Trump contact with Russia is only a part of that. Regrettably, the disinformation method of the KGB, not reported by the media, yet, the Obama holdovers are well aware of the method…
What an irony! The media was deaf and mute for the last eight years of Obama’s Administration, when a secret cooperation with Russia in many respects, including military collaboration was flourishing. I was presenting recently that exact information in details in my column American Carnage, February 11, 2017 and had been writing about it during the last eight years. If you read Socialist Lies you are familiar with the term Obama/Putin joint venture. For those who had never heard that term, here is a brief information and description.
Obama/Putin Joint Venture
Neither Benghazi nor any other of Obama’s scandals will ever be uncovered without the knowledge of Obama/Putin joint venture. Moreover, a mess, inherited by President Trump will continue undeterred by any of his actions until Obama’s holdovers are eliminated. In fact, they are the Soviet Mafia on the soil of America. When I introduced you to the Obama/Putin joint venture, I also named it–Destruction of the American Republic. It has the common ideology, a foundation in Soviet Fascism. The logic should tell you that any of Trump’s success in Making America Great Again requires authentic knowledge of Obama/Putin joint venture to fight it.
We are dealing with the same symptoms of a disease President Reagan identified and defeated. Did you know that people from former Soviet Republics are now joining ISIS? Field commanders of ISIS are known to be Saddam’s former security operatives, trained by the Soviet/Russian security forces. Did you notice a pattern of Obama being late to many of the important issues of our day: ISIS, Syria, Iraq, Iran, IRS, Benghazi, and Ukraine? In fact, those events are the components of an ideology working against the interests of America.
And again as you can see in all of Obama actions or non-actions connected to Russia; Putin is up, and America is down. Watching Obama for the last eight years and knowing the ideology of Soviet fascism, I have invented the term Obama/Putin Joint Venture. In fact, it means—Obama/KGB joint venture. I don’t believe one word Obama eloquently speaks—eloquence used by him to hide his real thoughts in the best traditions of Stalin’s political correctness. You should know the Soviet Mafia to understand Obama’s behavior. By the way, the Russian ambassador Kislyk visited the White House twenty-two times and had personal meetings with Obama four times. Obama was not lazy, stupid or incompetent, as some suggested, on the contrary he was very successful in his joint venture to expand the implementation of political correctness and Soviet Fascism in America. Regrettably, NATO had missed it. Look at what I had written in 2014:
Fortunately, there are signs that NATO is beginning to grasp some truth about the Russia that emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union, the truth, I have been writing about for the last twenty-five years. “NATO has struggled to counter Moscow’s tactics in a conflict where traditional military force is only one part of the fight…” NATO underestimated the role of political correctness–that insidious evil of the world… Financial Times, Friday August 29, 2014: Russia’s new art of war. Unfortunately, NATO had not realized the help provided by Obama to Russia then in 2014. NATO also has not been familiar with the ideology that united Obama and Putin, NATO had not realized that we have the Evil Empire of Global Terrorism in the 21st century.
As you can see President Trump has inherited a very complicated and dangerous world. To solve those monumental domestic and overseas problems requires presentation of the whole truth and only the truth. This is the major task before President Donald J Trump. Unfortunately, some Republicans still do not understand whom they are dealing with. Do you remember a woman-voter who complained to John McCain about her fear of an Obama presidency before the 2008 election? Senator McCain assured her that Obama is “an honest and decent man.” It was enough for me to vote for Romney in the next 2012 election. I was shocked, when Republicans confirmed Loretta Lynch as Attorney General. They forgot or even did not know her connection to Bill Clinton…
Politicized Media and Intel
To derail a positive public response to a very successful Trump presentation before Congress, the Democrats sent an army of surrogates to exacerbate the Trump alleged collusion with Russia. The collective choruses of loud voices prevailed in the media: radio, internet, and TV. And Trump’s tweet about Obama’s wiretapping of Trump Tower was a timely and essential response. To understand the symptoms and the political disease, I purposely gave you a paragraph from the Soviet Decision of 1955, introducing the term “agents of influence” in my column February 11, 2017.
There are two types of “agents of Influence”—the enemies trained to subversive activities and those ill-informed Americans in both political parties. Let me give you an example of an enemy in the media. The correspondent of the New York Times, Walter Durante in the 1930s was the KGB agent of influence. Find him in Wikipedia and you will see how he helped Stalin during the Purges and Show Trails to kill thousands of innocent people. Stalin paid him very well for deceiving and fooling the West.
Stalin died March 5, 1953, but his Doctrine is alive and well. Look at what happened March 5, 2017 on CNN. The State of the Union had a show named “crises of public trust.” They were accusing Trump of lying and misleading. They were the convenient toys of the KGB due to their total ignorance. None of the participants knew that they were discussing Russia in the day of Stalin’s death, let alone that their knowledge of the KGB or the Soviet Mafia was ZERO. The CNN show, GPS, has repeated the same main motive– Trump is wrong in all accounts on the same exact day, no word about Stalin. Those people are the second type of the “agents of influence” due to their political ignorance. They are spreading “fake news” and helping the KGB to create confusion and chaos in America…
The same picture is a politicized Intelligence Community, all seventeen of them. I don’t know whether any of the seventeen had vetted a “community organizer,” named Barack Obama. If you read any of my books, you know that I didn’t trust American Intel, for a very simple reason—any country’s Intel is a primary target for the KGB and GRU. I was surprised when none of the seventeen agencies of our Intel stopped a massive transfer of American high technology to the Russian military by the Clinton Mafia, or stopped Iran Nuclear Deal beneficiary for Putin. By the way, why do we need seventeen agencies? Russia has only three and very successfully runs half of the world. They are the FSB (a former KGB), GRU, and Investigative Committee. Stalinist Doctrine has prevailed over all three.
My explanation of two types of “agents of influence,” can be applied to our Intel as well. Today they constitute a Shadow Government run by Obama. He operates through his accomplices—they together ran America and the world for the last eight years. They are the soldiers of the Democrat Party, who hate Trump and will fight his administration to the last drop of their blood. Some of them have no idea of Obama/KGB joint venture, having been fooled and deceived by Obama.
There is another reason for me to discuss our Intel—I am a victim of their ignorance. Bill Clinton eliminated all research of Russia, he also tried to silent myself, as the author and researcher of Russian history and the KGB. A FISA court under Bill Clinton has launched multiple surveillances against me: my computer and phone were wiretapped, my mail arrested, and I was fired from my teaching position in a University. I had been a conservative, teaching the truth about Soviet Russia to Americans. Despite that, I continued writing my books and columns, but since then the information about them has been blocked by our Intel. Due to those activities by Intel, Americans were prevented from learning the Truth about Soviets/Russia. You can see the result of that today, in March 2017—nobody understands the predicament in America and the world. Look at our incompetent media and tell me why a FISA court made me a “foreign agent.” What an overwhelming confusion and chaos…
My friend, a former CIA officer, knowing my research of Soviet Fascism, sent me this e-mail: Video / Mark Levin: Lays out evidence supporting accusation that Obama’s Authorized Spying Is Police State Tactics.
“The republic is in great danger. The trusted assessment several months ago was that there many in the intelligence community were waging war against Trump. Unfortunately Mark Levin who is held in high regard presents evidence here (short outtake from TV interview):
I agree with my friend. The American Republic is in great danger! Due to the civil war against ignorance and “agents of influence”, America is on the threshold of Watergate No.2. Please, read my two latest books—better late than never!
The abortion debate inevitably travels in the same issue-avoiding circles. I was recently on an ABC panel debating the courts blocking Florida’s 24-hour wait period for a woman to get an abortion after receiving counseling, providing time for her to weigh more information into her life-and-death decision.
Naturally enough, it devolved into a debate on abortion — as it always should. I was debating a pro-choice feminist and board member of the ACLU. And a friend. Our debate was feisty but civil — an important goal.
However, the debate continued on Facebook, where it became decidedly less civil. One of the great canards thrown at me all the time is that I cannot have an opinion on this because I am a man. This is so easily cut down and burned that there is never a response to my point. It’s just reiterated that I can’t. I’m male.
What this and so much of the rest of abortion debate dodgeball suggest is that rational thought, morals and, more than ever, science, make the pro-choice position completely indefensible. There is simply no way to defend a woman’s “right” to end the life of another human being for any reason she chooses, at any point in the pregnancy she chooses.
Canards flying everywhere
Hence we have the dodgeball arguments that this is a “choice”; that this is about “reproductive health rights”; that this is about “health care”; that a man cannot have an opinion.
So when I make these points, they are really never refuted head-on. This is demonstrated with painful clarity in the Facebook debate that followed. It’s linked below.
Here is a sampling from Facebook, from both men and women:
“I watched it last night. I still don’t understand why men think they have a say in women’s health.”
“The next segment should be on prostate health. I’m looking forward to (a woman) expressing her opinion on that.”
“A man’s opinion on a women’s health and body issue is just not on equal footing with (a woman’s), no matter how eloquent and reasonable it may be.”
“What if women were up in arms because of men’s selfish refusal to get vasectomies?? What if we tried to FORCE men to get vasectomies for the safety of women?”
“Another man chimes in, lol.”
FYI, the response that men cannot have an opinion on this is astonishingly faulty thinking. Morals are not gender-dependent. Right and wrong is right and wrong. There is not a different set of rights and wrongs based on gender. It is not morally acceptable for a woman to steal from a man because she is a woman, because *stealing* is wrong. It is not morally acceptable for a man to kill a woman, or another man, because *murder* is wrong. Stealing and murder are wrong independent of which gender is doing it and which gender is considering its morality. In the same way, killing an unborn baby is either morally acceptable or not morally acceptable, independent of which gender is doing it or which gender is considering its morality.
Let’s play abortion dodgeball!
All of this is dodgeball. You see how all of the accusations avoid the central point. I’m convinced most know deep down this is the willful taking of an innocent human life. They know that is not defensible on any moral grounds.
So they play dodge the issue.
I throw out “Is it a human life in the womb?” They dodge left with “It’s a woman’s choice!”
I throw again “Is it a human life in the womb?” They dodge right with “It’s about reproductive rights!”
I throw again “Is it a human life in the womb?” They duck with “It’s about healthcare!”
I throw again “Is it a human life in the womb?” They spin sideways with “Pro-lifers don’t care about the life outside the womb!”
I throw again “Is it a human life in the womb?” They slide down with “If pro-lifers really cared about abortions, they would support better sex education!”
I throw again “Is it a human life in the womb?” They spin sideways with “You’re a man!”
I throw one last time “Is it a human life in the womb?” And one may finally answer with “No! It’s a clump of cells. Nothing more than a tumor.”
Finally. Someone admits to being a science-denier. But at least we can get on to debate the core issue with all the scientific evidence that it is indeed a measurable human being within weeks. We measure the death of a human with heartbeat and brainwaves. The baby has both of those in six to eight weeks.
That’s it. Dodge the ball of what abortion really is.
None of these remotely approach a defense for a state policy of allowing the willful killing of a human being with inherent rights by another human being for any reason, or no reason.
As a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel I stand with those soldiers who are put in harms way and are doing what they have been trained to do, close with and destroy the enemy using all means available.
US soldiers in Afghanistan are now forced to fight a two-fronted war. Before each deployment, these soldiers understand fully that day after day they will do battle against relentless terrorists with shifting loyalties and unspeakable hatred. But what none of them could have foreseen was the killing field that would open from their rear…the Continental United States.
Our government’s incessant tightening of already restrictive ROE (Rules of Engagement), compounded by the failed COIN (Counterinsurgency) strategy—also known as “winning hearts and minds,” has made an otherwise primitive enemy formidable.
Our best and brightest come home in body bags as politicians and lawyers dine over white linen tablecloths; writing, modifying, and re-modifying these lethal rules…rules that favor the enemy rather than the American soldier. Rules so absurd they’re difficult to believe until you hear the same stories over and again from those returning from battle.
Billy and Karen Vaughn lost their son Navy SEAL Arron due to the rules of engagement, which benefit the enemy and harm, and kill, our men and women in uniform.
U.S. Army Sergeant Derrick Miller
I received this pleas for the mother of U.S. Army Sergeant Derrick Miller,
I am so thankful that Major Donahue asked me to send this e-mail to you today…
My name is Renee Myers and my son is Sgt. Derrick Miller of the Maryland National Guard.
Derrick is the kind of man every mother wants her son to grow up to be – strong, kind and loyal. He’s a proud daddy who adores his two daughters – this photo is one of my favorites of him holding his oldest daughter, Karina.
But what I love the most about my son is that he felt it was his duty as an American to join the National Guard. In fact, he volunteered for two of his three deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Now, I wish I could go back in time and tell him not to…
Because for volunteering to defend our nation, Derrick has been sentenced to life in prison for doing exactly what the Army trained him to do!
You see, while on a combat mission in September of 2010, Derrick watched an Afghani national walk through his unit’s defense perimeter. The same man had been detained the day before under suspicion of driving insurgents to a nearby combat firefight.
So to be safe, Derrick and another U.S. soldier took him into custody for questioning with an Afghani interpreter.
Derrick asked the man why he was within the American defense perimeter. First, the man claimed to be an electrician responding to a downed power line. Then he claimed to be there to fix a water pump. Either way, he had no tools with him.
The Afghani grew more and more agitated as Derrick continued asking questions. Suddenly, he grabbed for Derrick’s weapon.
Derrick reacted immediately – firing and killing the suspect.
Richard, just days after the incident, Derrick was arrested and charged with “premeditated murder” of the Afghani insurgent!
For eight terrible months, we waited for the trial that would finally set the record straight and bring Derrick home to us. After all, there were witnesses who saw the whole incident and would testify on his behalf.
But instead, our government turned its back on Derrick – a decorated U.S. soldier – to appease Afghanistan officials.
Remember, another soldier had witnessed the interrogation and confirmed Derrick’s account. But he changed his story after the government threatened to charge him with accessory to murder.
The other witness was the Afghani translator. And in exchange for testifying against Derrick, he was granted U.S. citizenship.
Yes, our government brought him here to the U.S. and paid for him to live in an on-base hotel for six months with food, a personal van, and a $630 per month allowance – all provided at taxpayer expense!
Worst of all, the Army destroyed every bit of forensic evidence that could have proved Derrick was acting in self-defense. There were no photos. No autopsy. Nothing.
But I still believed the government would do the right thing. Instead, I held hands with my husband and Derrick’s wife, Katherine, and listened in shock as Derrick was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
His feet were shackled, his hands cuffed to a leather belt around his waist, and, just like that, my only child was taken from me.
Since then, the world has simply fallen apart for his precious family.
The military immediately stopped Derrick’s paychecks. Derrick’s wife and my husband and I had pooled together all our money to hire a civilian attorney to represent Derrick. It cost $50,000 – every cent we had.
Now, with no money in the bank, his wife couldn’t pay their mortgage, utilities, car payment, or Derrick’s student loans.
Derrick had always worked two jobs so his wife could stay home after their babies were born. Now she can’t. The girls are so little and they don’t understand. They ask her over and over again, “Why can’t Daddy come home?”
They wake up at night and cry for him. And honestly, sometimes so do I.
Richard, I can’t bear the thought of the girls growing up without their dad. Or Derrick not being able to scoop them up in his arms before they’re grown. But we have only one hope left now…
You see, Major Donahue heard about Derrick’s case and contacted me immediately.
As you know, Major Donahue knows firsthand from combat tours of Vietnam that you can’t send U.S. soldiers into terrorist combat zones and second-guess their actions from a desk in Washington. And now UAP is ready to help Derrick.
But first, they have to raise money for an appeal, which will require hours of legal research, expert witnesses, and legal motions. Remember, UAP is a non-profit organization, which means they don’t receive any funding from the federal government – only private donations from patriotic Americans.
It also means that I’m going to take a deep breath and ask you one of the hardest questions I’ve ever asked another person:

Actually it is over a half billion the US Conference of Catholic Bishops received from U.S. taxpayers since 2008!
(By the way, I just heard Raymond Arroyoon Fox and Friends say that the USCCB gets millions of tax dollars annually from the federal treasury, but I couldn’t find the clip. Yeh! Finally that information is getting in to the mainstream media!)
Washington D.C., Mar 6, 2017 / 03:50 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- With people fleeing humanitarian crises around the world, President Donald Trump’s new executive order halting refugee admissions is wrong, Catholic bishop and aid groups maintain.
“We remain deeply troubled by the human consequences of the revised executive order on refugee admissions and the travel ban. While we note the Administration’s efforts to modify the Executive Order in light of various legal concerns, the revised Order still leaves many innocent lives at risk,” Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin stated March 6. Bishop Vasquez chairs the U.S. bishops’ committee on migration.
“The U.S. Catholic Bishops have long recognized the importance of ensuring public safety and would welcome reasonable and necessary steps to accomplish that goal,” he said.
“However, based on the knowledge that refugees are already subjected to the most vigorous vetting process of anyone who enters the United States, there is no merit to pausing the refugee resettlement program while considering further improvement to that vetting process.”
But, for only one year did Obama propose the astronomical number of 110,000 (for most of the year he would not be in office!) and that becomes the standard that the ignorant, gullible media goes with! For the many new readers we get every day, the resettlement contractors, including the USCCB, gets paid by the head to place refugees in your towns. More refugees=more money!
“Resettling only 50,000 refugees a year, down from 110,000, does not reflect the need, our compassion, and our capacity as a nation,” Bishop Vasquez stated.“We have the ability to continue to assist the most vulnerable among us without sacrificing our values as Americans or the safety and security of our nation.”
He goes on to oppose any religious test (like the prioritization of Christians in the first EO) for admission to the US.
Now, here comes a major truth! And, this is why Christians are not prioritized from Muslim countries!
Refugees must first register with the UNHCR to be eligible for resettlement.
Trump should immediately sever our ties with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, save us millions of dollars, and put in place a program where we, the US, chooses our refugees without the UNHCR middle men!
“The Obama administration policy was to prioritize these groups, but despite this they remain severely underrepresented in U.S. refugee admissions, so it’s clear that a fair outcome is even more important than a stated priority,” he said. [Andrew Walther, vice president of communications and strategic planning at the Knights of Columbus.]
Syriac Patriarch Ignatius Joseph III Younan of Antioch has warned that Christians hoping to be resettled in the U.S. or Canada have never even had the chance.
“I personally heard on several occasions from many of our Christian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, that their applications for refugee visas, either to the USA or Canada, are without any response, if not refused by the consulates of the USA and Canada,” he stated.
Never mentioned at CNA News is the financial reason the USCCB does not want to slow the flow for even a short period of time—$$$$$!
Here (below) is just one page of the income the USCCB is getting from you (from 2008-2016). This does not include the millions and millions of tax payer dollars received separately by individual Catholic Charities around the country.

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. The chemical symbol of Pelosium is Pu. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.
When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates MSNBCobnoxium and CNNadnausium, both elements that radiate orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since they have half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.
Since it has no electrons, Pelosium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Pelosium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second. In the presense of anti-morons, Pelosium can be extremely corrosive. Botox seems to distort and smooth it’s surface, without impeding it’s ongoing decay.
Pelosium has a normal half-life of approximately two years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a transmutation, appearing in a new location but displaying the same properties. In this process, assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each transmutation.
Research at other laboratories indicates that Pelosium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, universities, and anywhere there is news coverage occurring. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.
Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.

I performed my original song, “We Are Americans” at the Orlando March 4 Trump Rally. It felt like a family reunion seeing patriots from the early days of the Tea Party movement; lots of hugs. The mood of the rally was electric. Everyone was happy, excited and fired-up about President Trump.

To the fake news media and Obama who think their orchestrated lying campaign to destroy Trump is working, I say, “Forget about it! It ain’t workin’!” Trump-mania is alive and well, stronger than ever!
Vendors were selling Trump caps, t-shirts and everything in between including Trump welcome mats. One elderly patriot adorned head-to-toe in red, white and blue Trump paraphernalia told me she feared putting a Trump welcome mat outside her front door. She said it is unfair that we cannot freely support our president without fear of attacks.
The emcee instructed all us speakers to stay close to the stage. However, I knew there were a few speakers ahead of me on the program so I wandered away into the crowd to chat with people.
A white gentleman shared with me his frustration trying to legally bring his foreign wife to the United States. He said after battling incompetence, submitting a mountain of documents and spending $18,000 thus far, his wife still has not been granted entry into the U.S. We talked about the unfairness. He is respecting and adhering to our immigration laws. And yet, Obama opened the flood gates to illegals totally un-vetted, gifting them government freebies unavailable to Americans. I told the brother to hang in there. Trump is cutting bureaucracy.
I met a white woman who is chair of a Republican Club. She said they have been reaching out to blacks in a sincere attempt to add more diversity to their club. She asked my advise. I chuckled and said, “Good luck with that.” I have been trying to get blacks to break their mindless loyalty to the democrats for over a decade. Still, I told the patriot sister to keep trying. With God’s help, suddenly mindsets can change.
I asked a young white kid around 14 years old about the unique flag he was waving; blue with a crescent moon and the word, liberty. The kid was an encyclopedia regarding American flags, giving me the full history. Blown away, I said, “You are way too smart for public school. You have got to be home schooled.” He replied, “Yes sir.” I knew it. In my years of touring the country on 14 Tea Party national bus tours, home schooled kids were strikingly different; calmer, smarter, behaved and well educated. Leftists are at war with parents trying to outlaw homeschooling.
Everyone was excitedly buzzing about Trump tweeting about Obama bugging Trump Tower before the election. Enraged fake news, democrats and other leftists bash Trump for tweeting declaring it un-presidential. Clearly, Trump supporters, over 60 million Americans love it. They love Trump speaking directly to them, bypassing Leftist operatives disguised as mainstream media.
An Asian female speaker addressing the crowd said it took her 35 years to become a legal US citizen with the right to vote. She expressed how proud she was to be an American. The audience went nuts. They loved her.
Representatives from Hispanics, women and blacks for Trump spoke from the stage. They were warmly and enthusiastically embraced by the crowd. We were family, united in our love for our country, excited about President Trump and his agenda; putting America first and making her great again. Such was the theme of the day.
I chatted with blacks at the rally to support Trump. Interestingly, they were entrepreneurs. It is funny how when you’re a business person trying to achieve your American Dream, you are well aware of the road blocks placed in your path by high taxes and the government’s tyrannical, absurd regulations.
The biggest thing I noticed at the Orlando for Trump rally was the obvious political growth and political sophistication of the participants. Back in the early days of the Tea Party movement we were naive patriots. We thought we were fighting only against the socialist policies of a left-leaning president and the democrats.
Today, we know our enemies: radical Leftist Obama and his army of thugs; the fake news media; the corrupt Washington DC political establishment (Republicans and Democrats); and NeverTrumps – united in their mission to destroy Trump’s presidency.
We the People are politically well educated and well-organized. We are spiritually, emotionally and intellectually locked and loaded, really for battle – really to support and defend our new president.
Please continue moving forward, Mr President. We the People have your back!

The recent flurry of marches, demonstrations and even riots, along with the Democratic Party’s spiteful reaction to the Trump presidency, exposes what modern liberalism has become: a politics shrouded in pathos. Unlike the civil-rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s, when protesters wore their Sunday best and carried themselves with heroic dignity, today’s liberal marches are marked by incoherence and downright lunacy—hats designed to evoke sexual organs, poems that scream in anger yet have no point to make, and an hysterical anti-Americanism.
All this suggests lostness, the end of something rather than the beginning.
On Nov. 20, 1965 the Free Speech Movement (FSM) of the University of California, Berkeley, organized a protest of several thousand students outside a meeting of the Regents of the University of California. The regents were gathered to discuss how to deal with the FSM. The movement had grown out of students involved in the Civil Rights movement and became a sign of the power of student activism that would be a trademark of the 1960s.
The FSM had its beginnings with students involved with CORE (Congress on Racial Equality) and the Southern Civil Rights movement. In the summer of 1964 some U.C. Berkeley students had gone south to work with CORE and returned for the new school year in September 1964. The CORE students set up tables on the Berkeley campus asking for donations and new members.
Ten liberal terrorists were arrested in California after physically attacking, bloodying, and in the case of an eldery [sic] gentleman, threatening the life of pro-Trump supporters on Saturday. The liberal thugs attacked the Trump rally in Berkeley, California with metal pipes, bats, 2×4’s, and pieces of wood according to police who arrived at the scene well after violence had gotten out of hand.
“At least two people, with their faces covered up, could be seen on video trying to set fire to an American flag, while a photo on Twitter showed the bloody face of a man who wore a T-shirt that said ‘Trump is My President.’” reported The LA Times.
Typically, the liberal media has barely reported on a story that highlights the thuggery and terrorist actions of the liberal left. Several rally supporters complained about the lack of intervention by police officers despite the violence shown below, a common complaint at pro-Trump rally’s in liberal states like this one in California. Despite the large amount of violence, numerous reports indicate that police officers refused to intervene, and only one suspect was arrested.
Freedom of speech has now become “hate speech” if you do not belong to those who support President Donald J. Trump or America. Peaceful protests have turned violent. Those who support the President are bloodied, beaten and harassed, including the Vice President of the United States, whose wife’s email address was made public by the Associated Press.
The so called “resist” movement has the signature of another group known as the Storm Detachment (German Sturmabteilung or SA) the paramilitary wing of the Nazi party.

From April 1924 until late February 1925 the SA was reorganized into a front organization known as the Frontbann to circumvent Bavaria‘s ban on the Nazi Party and its organs (instituted after the abortive Beer Hall putsch of November 1923). Members of the SA were, throughout the 1920s and into the 1930s, often involved in street fights called Zusammenstöße (collisions) with members of the Communist Party (KPD).
Fast forward to today and we have the “resist” movement.
The Indivisible Team (IT) was established by a group of five former Democratic congressional staffers in the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the November 2016 presidential election. One of the five founders, IT board president Ezra Levin, had previously served as associate director of government affairs at the Corporation for Enterprise Development, and as an AmeriCorpsVISTA employee in the Homeless Services Division of the San Jose Department of Housing. Another key founder, IT board secretary Angel Padilla, had worked as an immigration policy consultant at the National Council of La Raza, and as an adviser to Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Illinois) from 2009-11.
Upon its inception, IT’s first order of business was to launch a website devoted to providing leftists and liberals with strategies for countering the “radical, racist, and sexist” objectives of President Trump. This website features a tool kit for local IT organizers, a daily calendar that lists national events and calls-to-action, and the group’s signature publication, Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda. During December 2016 and January 2017, this Guide was downloaded more than 1 million times.
Fear drives the “resist movement” to commit violence. Fear that they have lost power and influence. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch made an impassioned video plea for more marching, blood and death on the streets – a video that was later posted on the Facebook page of Senate Democrats as “words of inspiration.”
Gird your loins America for more violence, mayhem and destruction. You can thank your Democrat friend for this neo-free speech movement that wants to silence you.
