Mid-Term 2018: Why Americans Should Love Their Odds

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case, the picture is worth a whole lot more. 2016 marked a major turning point for the United States – away from global Marxism back towards American exceptionalism, freedom, liberty and justice for all.

But it wasn’t the end to an all-American movement, it was just the beginning.

The Picture of Hope

Everywhere you see RED the people voted for President Donald J. Trump to turn this country around. Every RED county voted to end the Obama era lawlessness and march to global Marxism. They all voted against D.C. establishment career politicians in favor of a D.C. outsider who promised to represent the will of the legal American citizen.

This means that as we head into the 2018 mid-term elections, with 435 House and 34 Senate members up for reelection, the same RED counties have the power to Repeal and Replace Congress… if they work together in strategic fashion, with a take-no-prisoners attitude the same way they seized the White House in 2016.

99% vs. 1%

Americans have finally come to the realization that the battle is not right vs. left or republican vs. democrat. It’s 99% of Americans vs. the 1% career political elite who serve no interests but their own. 99% of Americans want America to be great again, no matter past party affiliations. All of them have been ignored and abused by their elected representatives.

To put a fine point on the matter, try to name one member of congress who has not violated their oath of office? Try to name just one who has not violated Article IV – Section IV of the U.S. Constitution, even today.

“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.”

The answer is not ONE member of the House or Senate has kept their oath to uphold, defend and enforce the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, democrat or republican. NOT ONE! Yes, the 1% includes the anti-American media, which makes them appear more powerful than the people.

Only the People can “drain this swamp”

No matter how much Donald Trump might like to “drain the swamp,” alone, he can’t. No one person could. The “swamp” is vast to say the very least. 97% of federal employees, every branch and every agency combined, supported Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in 2016. This means we have approximately 3% who are not part of the anti-American swamp…

For Trump (or anyone else) to succeed in “draining that swamp,” better defined as a cesspool or sewer, they will need “the people” to help with that process. Congress and the courts aren’t standing at odds with Trump… they are standing at odds with America!

In 2016 the people focused on seizing control of the people’s White House. In 2018, they must focus on seizing control of the people’s congress and they can do it… in fact, based upon that RED map above and the fact that this battle is really 99% “We the People” vs. 1% they the career politicians, I like our odds a lot.

If you don’t love these odds, it’s because you are not yet engaged with all fellow Americans determined to Make America Great Again! WE are the only solution WE have…

REPEAL and REPLACE CONGRESS state-by-state, district-by-district. If we don’t, there will be no one to blame but ourselves!

Media Whores

All apologies to the hard-working street-walkers and penthouse prostitutes who, unlike the modern-media harlots and rent-boys, have no illusions and offer no excuses about what they do and why.

For well over 75 years, Americans have naively trusted that the people who bring them the news every night––and today, 24/7––are highly informed, deeply sincere, remarkably unbiased public servants.

After all, why would anyone go into a notoriously low-paying profession if he or she was not at heart an idealist?

Motives, of course, vary. Some are attracted to the “profession” because they are news junkies and want to be where the political action is. Others seek the limelight because the narcissist in them likes to be on camera. Then there are those who genuinely believe that their exposés and hard-hitting reporting can make a helpful difference in people’s lives. Finally we have aspirants with money signs in their eyes, hoping that they will be among the few who actually rake in the big bucks.

But for a public who still believe the “news” they read and hear and watch is even remotely related to “the truth,” allow me to burst that bubble.

As ace journalist Ashley Lutz scrupulously documented in a Business Insider report last year, in 1983 there were 50 media companies, but today only six organizations are now responsible for 90 percent of all the “news” we read, watch and listen to! They include:

  • GE (Comcast, NBC, Universal Pictures, Focus Features, et al).
  • NewsCorp (Fox, Wall St. Journal, NY Post, et al).
  • Disney (ABC, ESPN, Pixar, Miramax, Marvel Studios, et al)
  • Viacom (MTV, Nick Jr., BET, CMT, Paramount Pictures, et al)
  • Time Warner (CNN, HBO, TIME, Warner Bros., et al)
  • CBS (Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, NFL.com, Jeopardy, 60 Minutes, et al)

Make no mistake, the CEOs of these multibillion-dollar businesses are all leftist globalists––not a conservative among them––except perhaps for Rupert Murdoch (Fox, Wall St. Journal, NY Post, et al) who recently gave control of his empire to his leftist sons Lachlan and James, hence the distinctly leftward tilt of Fox and the WSJ.

Over the years, these globalist business titans have all made massive investments in the global economy, thanks largely to the leftist con men and women––the Clintons and Obamas; the communists, tin-pot dictators and America-haters of the United Nations; the leftist billionaires who thrive on and denounce capitalism at the same time––who wined and dined and charmed them into believing that America was on the decline and that the open-borders, one-world-government crowd was in imminent ascendance.

But big ideas, like the notion of a diminishing America, are never successful without the full-time help of a media that is run by––ta da––the globalists themselves!

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

Ms. Wide-Eyed idealist and Mr. Upwardly-Mobile go-getter apply for jobs at their local or national radio or TV stations or newspapers. Or they “know someone” who facilitates an interview that leads to being hired. A good example of the latter is the nice-enough but remarkably untalented Chelsea Clinton, who landed an astronomically high-paying job with NBC that, mercifully for viewers, lasted about a minute.

Once hired, these wannabe journalists are thrilled to be on their way, until it dawns on them that their bosses don’t give a damn about anything they think or believe or want to convey to a hungry public. For most media employees, it soon becomes clear that they are expected––indeed, mandated––to reflect and convey the belief systems of their employers. And unless they do that, they are completely DISPENSABLE!

My favorite example is Alysin Camerota of CNN. When she was at Fox, she was Ms. Reliable Conservative, or at least fair and balanced. But the very millisecond she moved to CNN, she became as rabidly partisan as any leftwing fanatic has ever been.

Why? Because Ms. Alysin knew immediately that she was dispensable. That’s how big business works. Toe the line or you’re out! The same can be said of all of the self-important newscasters who are literally given their marching orders––or more accurately, their talking orders––by their media bosses.

Not just talking orders, but word-for-word memes, which is why no matter which lefty network or cable show you turn to, they’re all using the same vocabulary, expressions, key words. I first noticed this when Dick Cheney was chosen as a VP candidate by George W. Bush. All of a sudden, the media talking heads discovered the word “gravitas”!

Today, vis-à-vis Hurricane Harvey, the buzz word is the “empathy” that President Trump supposedly lacks––this in spite of an entire nation watching the people of Houston embrace and thank him. But objectivity has never been part of the media whores’ repertoire, only slavish obeisance to their bosses.

Watch for yourself… in fact, take notes. There is a remarkable absence of originality in today’s political reportage; it’s all an echo chamber of talking points and leftist propaganda that the anchors and reporters have received beforehand and literally been commanded to utilize at risk of their job.

And watch these [dispensable] media whores try to impress their bosses by competing in the categories of “best gotcha question,” “most [feigned] outrage,” most blank-faced faux objectivity,” “most vilification toward President Trump,” who these disrespectful [dispensable] employees insist on calling “Trump.” Again, watch for yourself.

But the question still remains: Why the ferocity against President Trump? Why the fanatical mission to depose him from office, to bring him down? The answer is quite simple: in every single case of what used to pass for politics as usual––he has single-handedly destroyed and brought down the prevailing powers-that-be: the Democrat Party, the Republican Party, the globalist agenda, treaties that were bad for America, the open-borders fetish, and the monolith known as the American media.

How? By giving voice to what the American people have known and been angry about for decades, i.e., that they are all corrupt, permeated with bribes and payoffs, self-serving, and in too many cases anti-American, anti the U.S. Constitution, and anti the Judeo-Christian ethics upon which our exceptional nation was founded.

PAYING THE WHORES

What we’ve been witnessing since June of 2015, when billionaire real-estate mogul and TV celebrity Donald Trump announced for the presidency is a three-part phenomenon.

The first gear was based on the arrogance of the establishment media poohbahs––the globalists––who spent over a year believing that the directives they gave to their [dispensable] media whores to deride, insult, sneer at, defame, vilify and laugh at candidate Trump would destroy him.

But they failed! And as candidate Trump succeeded in vanquishing not five or 10 or 14 but 17 formidable opponents and gaining the nomination, the globalists shifted into second gear.

Second gear involved the vast expenditures the globalists were willing to make to stop Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign in its tracks, the kind of money––including, I suspect, huge payoffs––to polling firms to literally lie about the numbers.

Every poll showed the worst candidate in American history, Hillary Clinton, ahead of the charismatic Mr. Trump. And every poll in every state that historically has been a reliable slam-dunk for Democrats––Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, etc.––showed Ms. Hillary far ahead. And let’s not forget that every lying poll was reported earnestly as the gospel truth by the globalists’ reliable but [dispensable] media whores.

I don’t have to guess about the, ahem, contributions made to the poseurs who call themselves Republicans but who we now know are really in the thrall of anyone who puts money into their bottomless pockets. Those windfalls include––according to opensecrets.org and Matthew Boyle of Breitbart.com––the hefty largess from hedge-fund billionaire and mega-funder of all things leftist, George Soros, whose name is attached to no fewer than 206 left-wing U.S. organizations, according to Dr. Eowyn. Here is the short list of sell-out Republicans who accepted Mr. Soros’s, um, influential money: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, presidential candidates former governor Jeb Bush and current governor John Kasich; senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley, and senator and former presidential candidate Marco Rubio, the list goes on.

It is noteworthy that, as reported by Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, Mr. Soros has also funded every major protest since the November 2016 election, including the Women’s March on Washington (see my article, “The March to Nowhere”), the protests in front of Trump Tower in NY City, the thug-fests at Berkeley College and elsewhere, and of course the fascists-on-display demonstrations of the anti-American, anti-Semitic Black Lives Matter and Antifa, where bought-and-paid for miscreants––dressed up like and imitating ISIS terrorists and Hitler’s Brown Shirts––proceeded to smash windows, light cars on fire, and brutally attack supporters of President Trump.

All the while, the media honchos have kept up the negative drumbeat to defeat the president––to find something criminal to pin on him, to impeach him––even exhorting their [dispensable] media whores to ramp up the attacks.

In fact, a Harvard study released in May by the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy revealed that in the president’s first 100 days in office, 10 major TV and print outlets reported negatively 98 percent of the time!

Third gear is what we’ve been witnessing since the election on November 8, 2016, when the globalists and moneybags who control both the media and the politicians realized that all of their efforts to stop the Trump Triumph had failed miserably. Every last dollar down the drain. Every “news” report for naught. Every article worthy only of lining a thousand birdcages.

DESPERATE MEASURES

What to do? First the media whores created the colossal fiction that the Trump camp had colluded with Russia to rig the election. For days and weeks and months on end, these [dispensable] prostitutes studiously eschewed actual news, instead robotically intoning their anesthetizing talking points: Russia-Trump, Trump-Russia, Russia-Trump, Trump-Russia. That was it. No evidence, no first-person testimony, just the feeble attempts by their supposedly intelligent bosses to accomplish what they had failed at in the first place––getting rid of Donald Trump.

After that huge fizzle, the now-desperate get-Trump cabal trotted out the über-corrupt head of the FBI, James Comey, who astonishingly admitted that he used a Columbia professor to plant an article in The New York Times so that President Trump would be forced to appoint a Special Counsel. Sure enough, it was Comey’s close pal, former FBI director Robert Mueller, who got the job and has now appointed 17 attorneys, seven of them contributors to Ms. Hillary’s Presidential campaign and/or the Clinton foundation.  

But again, this witch hunt went nowhere, and so the [dispensable] media whores launched into their next mantra. While both domestic and international news demanded coverage, the American media’s globalist bosses ordered their lackeys to keep up their anti-Trump mantras in the preposterous form of Breaking News: “obstruction of justice,” Jared Kushner’s ‘illegal’ business dealings with Russian companies,” the supposedly nefarious goings-on of POTUS advisors Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, Charlottesville and their bogus claims of “racism, racism, racism,” and now Melania’s stilettos!

THE NET RESULT

Adding it all up, we have a president who is zooming along at warp speed, amassing unprecedented accomplishments for the American people (See my articles, “The Juggernaut & the Jerks” and “The Unstoppable Trump Train”).

The [dispensable] media whores have had zero effect on President Trump’s performance or his continuing popularity with the American public, as attested to by the huge and enthusiastic audiences he attracts wherever he goes. Or, for that matter, his mood, which is clearly and consistently ebullient, upbeat, enthusiastic, and optimistic about America’s future.

In addition, the mass gatherings of thugs, malcontents, anarchists, and basement dwellers have had zero effect on convincing our citizens that the left’s fairy-tale vision of America––a free lunch (and breakfast, dinner, education, housing, cell phones, etc.), socialized medicine, open borders, sanctuary cities, high taxes, a nanny government, et al.––is even palatable, much less preferable.

Still, President Trump––an upright citizen his entire life, an incredibly successful businessman, the bestselling author of over a dozen books, a philanthropist, the father of five respectful and loving children the eldest of whom are also impressively contributory members of society, the representative and now enactor of every value Republicans and conservatives traditionally stand for (low taxes, fewer regulations, secure borders, a strong military, strict conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, et al)––continues to be the target of a “system” that clearly prefers their longtime habit of cozy corruption.

The fact that he CANNOT. BE. BOUGHT. drives them crazy. And the fact that the entire media establishment, for all their blitz-like attacks, has not dented his energy, resolve, or the respect of our nation’s citizens, is clearly too much for them to take…hence the continued onslaught of lies, defamation, and attack.

This, of course, is where the media whores differ from the more respectable prostitutes in our culture, who simply do their job, collect their fees, and express their personal opinions and biases to their friends, colleagues and families.

The media whores could learn a lot from them.

Trump supporters are intelligent and energetic people of integrity

A doctor recently said to me that it’s hard to find individuals with intelligence, energy and integrity. My answer to him was that there are. The over 63 million who voted to make Donald J. Trump the President of the United States.

There are those who characterize Trump supporters as racist, hateful, bigoted. That’s not the truth.

Let’s look at why Trump supporters are intelligent and energetic people of integrity.

Perhaps the best example is the response to Hurricane Harvey. Texas is a state in which Donald Trump won 36 out of the 38 electors. Trump won the state by over 8 percent. Texas is Trump country. Texas is part of fly over America.

What exactly is fly over America?

Fly over America is that part of America between the big metropolitan areas of New York City and Los Angeles, California. It is where working class Americans live, work and play. It was the part of America that Hillary Clinton ignored. It was the part of America that Donald Trump embraced and the part that embraced Donald Trump. It is that part of America that wanted to restore respect for the country in a positive and loving way.

Intelligence versus Education

Intelligence is defined as “the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.” Education is “the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university.”

In July 2014 The Street listed the 10 “smartest” and 10 “dumbest” states in the country based on the percentage of the population with at least a bachelor’s degree or higher. The assumption is that having a bachelor’s degree or higher makes one “smart.” Those states without a high percentage of people with a bachelor’s degree, or higher, are classified as “dumb.”

When you look at The Street list and the 2016 Presidential election results, Hillary Clinton won all ten of the “smart” states – Minnesota, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Colorado and Massachusetts. Mrs. Clinton won one of the top ten dumbest states – Nevada.

Looking at the 2016 Presidential election results Donald J. Trump won nine of the top ten “dumb” states  – Tennessee, Oklahoma, Indiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and West Virginia. Donald Trump won the election. Of the remaining 30 states Donald Trump won 21 of the states that were classified by The Street as neither smart or dumb.

Smart is defined as having an bachelor’s degree or higher but that doesn’t make a person intelligent, e.g. a person having the ability to apply knowledge and skills. Intelligence is also defined as “the collection of information of political value.”

It is fly over Americans who are educating themselves and creating congregations, communities, organizations and a movement which elected Donald J. Trump president. An election that went against those who are deemed smart. The smart states lost. The intelligent people won.

Human Energy is what Makes America Great

Energy is defined as “the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.”

Human capabilities are boundless and the best of America comes out when the people are tested. The recent devastation in Texas is an example of the the boundless energy of the American people. The American people always respond to love, charity and helping those in need. This video tells the story better than any words we can write.

Physical strength and mental toughness were shown in Houston. Rolling up ones sleeves and rebuilding that which God’s nature has, by its power, taken away. This example of many coming together as one nation under God is what makes America great, a shining city on a hill. It was truly inspiring.

Integrity is key to a fulfilled life

Integrity is defined as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.”

Rod Dreher in his book The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation wrote:

The church, then, is both Ark and Wellspring – and Christians must live in both realities. God gave us the Ark of the church to keep us from drowning in the raging flood. But He also gave us the church as a place to drown our old selves symbolically in the water of baptism, and to grow in new life, nourished by the never-ending torrent of His grace. You cannot live the Benedict Option without seeing both visions simultaneously.

Those who see both visions will be people of integrity. It’s not about us, its about Him. Living as a Christian in a post-Christian nation requires integrity and much much more. America witnessed hundreds if not thousands of arks, the Texas Navy, being pulled on trailers headed toward Houston. Each of those arks was to keep the people of Texas from drowning in the raging flood both physically and spiritually.

Dreher in his book bears his soul and his concerns for the future of his family, community and the nation. Dreher writes in the preface to his book:

In my 2006 book Crunchy Cons, which explored a countercultural, traditionalist conservative sensibility, I brought up the work of philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre, who declared that Western civilization has lost its moorings. The time was coming, said MacIntyre, when men and women of virtue would understand that continued full participation in mainstream society was not possible for those who wanted to live a life of traditional virtue. These people would find new ways to live in community, he said, just as Saint Benedict, the sixth-century father of Western monasticism, responded to the collapse of Roman civilization by founding a monastic order.

Life requires a religious orthodoxy that sustains one through the tough times, like Houston, Texas. Houston gives us hope that God is alive and well and He is working in mysterious ways.

Failed FBI Motto: Fidelity Bravery Integrity

In a staggering admission of ongoing partisan protectionism the FBI just announced there was not enough “public interest” to release the information requested to further investigate Hillary’s unsecured basement email server.

The FBI has denied NY attorney Ty Clevenger his FOIA request for Hillary Clinton’s documents due to “lack of public interest.” Now that is a new one!

Mr. Clevenger recently received an asinine explanation from FBI records management section chief David Hardy saying, “You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject.” The stunning arrogance of this FBI response is rivaled only by former FBI director Comey’s recommendation against prosecuting Hillary after publicly articulating the powerful case for proceeding with prosecution.

The corrupt politicized FBI is still protecting Hillary. Now that is an old one!

FBI: Fidelity to the Constitution of the United States. Bravery to protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign intelligence threats. Integrity to combat public corruption at all levels. The entire FBI motto continues to be tested in the ongoing Hillary Clinton email affair and all three elements fail.

The FBI, Treasury, State Department, and Justice Department were all seriously politicized during the Obama administration. The departments operated more like protection rackets than proper non-partisan government agencies. They became political enforcers for Obama’s Washington Mafia including the Clinton Crime Family. Refused FOIA requests, stonewalling FOIA requests, conducting incompetent investigations that the Three Stooges would laugh at were all part of the scheme.

Whistleblowers didn’t last long in the Sicilian Mafia and they don’t last long in Washington either.

America elected a new President who has been isolated by government agencies still staffed by the Obama Washington Mafia leftovers determined to protect their crime boss. Obama’s “resistance” movement is nothing more than a criminal syndicate determined to destabilize and overthrow the government of President Donald Trump. After all, anarchy is still a crime in America. The Capos in congress sit on both sides of the aisle and work in collusion with the mainstream media whose bosses have a shared agenda to bring down President Trump.

The fake news, deliberate distortions, stonewalling of FOIA requests, malfeasance and ongoing lack of cooperation from the FBI, State Department, and West Wing democrats active in the White House are all part of the broader plan to protect Hillary which protects Obama which protect their globalist elite puppet masters.

The globalist elite groomed swamp master master Barack Hussein Obama to become president and bring the seismic change the globalist elite need. The legacy of swamp-master Barack Obama will be that he activated the Leftist/Islamist axis to destroy America from within. The hope and change that Obama brought to America was designed to create the social chaos necessary for the globalist elite to impose their own dystopian one-world government.

Barack Obama is a pro-Muslim narcissistic useful idiot. Hillary Clinton is a greedy Leftist useful idiot. Their sycophants are the lemmings that help bring anarchy through the Leftist/Islamist axis. What these arrogant fools do not understand is that there is no place for them in the one-world government envisioned by the elite globalists.

The existential enemy of the Leftist/Islamist axis is President Donald Trump. His Americanism and America-first policies are diametrically opposed to the globalism envisioned by his enemies. If President Trump does not immediately take back the White House he will be neutralized and relegated to the dust heap of ineffective Presidents.

We need to restore our government agencies to America-first. We need to restore the FBI motto to Fidelity Bravery and Integrity. We need President Trump to stand up in the White House and declare himself PRESIDENT not in a political rally in front of his base.

Make America Great Again (MAGA) Performance Review

It is time for the Make America Great Again (MAGA) performance review. How have Candidate Trump’s campaign promises fared in President Trump’s White House?

When ex-president Obama promised President Trump the customary peaceful transition of power President Trump believed him – it was a devastating mistake and catastrophic for MAGA. Our new President is a savvy businessman and America needs his business expertise – but government business is even dirtier and more corrupt than the New York real estate business.

In real estate it is far easier to identify your enemies – in government the swamp creatures are camouflaged by their ever-changing colors, deceitful smiles, and ability to adapt. Swamp creatures are entirely self-serving – there are no teams or loyalties in the swamp – just survival.

For eight years ex-president liar-in-chief Obama staffed the United States government with Globalists, Islamists, and Leftist activists. His hope and change agenda was designed to destroy American democracy and replace it with socialism. Obama followed Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” to create the social chaos required for seismic social change. Obama weaponized his pro-Muslim agenda and used it in his information war to destabilize America and create social chaos. He staffed the government with Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR members. Obama weakened the military and national security apparatus with training manuals rewritten to satisfy his MB/CAIR advisers that deliberately deleted any mention of Islam as the ideological inspiration for jihad terror. He used Common Core to re-educated our youth with a revisionist curriculum that rejects Judeo-Christian traditions and exalts Islam as a religion of peace. Obama was the media’s globalist darling and they covered up his crimes against America to advance the globalist agenda of their owners.

Make America Great Again advances Americanism. MAGA is the new program that President Trump brought to Washington to oppose globalism. So, after seven months what does the MAGA performance review reveal? A shocking reorganization from MAGA to GAMA – Globalists are Management Again.

In a stunning reversal of staffing all the President’s men are OUT and all the ex-president’s men are IN. This is a catastrophic management upheaval. It is simply impossible for President Trump to fulfill his campaign promises to MAGA with an oppositional staff that rejects Americanism, a Washington swamp that embraces globalism, a biased mainstream media that protects the globalists, a pro-Muslim educational system that idealizes globalism, and a national security apparatus that denies Islamic ideology is the inspiration for jihadi terrorism.

How did this happen? How does a dream become a nightmare? How does unlikely Candidate Trump become President Trump and then lose his way?

Thought precedes behavior. Businessman Trump built an empire by trusting his own vision. He began with a vision, listened to the advice of trusted advisors, evaluated the information through the prism of his own thoughts and values, and then made decisions.

Candidate Trump became President Trump by trusting his own vision. He began with a vision MAGA, listened to the advice of trusted advisors, evaluated the information through the prism of his own thoughts and values, and then made decisions.

President Trump brought his MAGA vision to Washington but the globalist traps were already set. There was no peaceful transition of power as promised. Instead, the swamp offensive began. The first attack was on General Michael Flynn, a true America-first patriot who understood the clear and present danger of radical Islam. General Flynn had the information to expose Obama’s insidious master plan to destabilize and destroy America from within. The globalist swamp needed to destroy General Flynn’s credibility to survive and so they did. But the creatures were not satisfied and the swamp attacks continued.

President Trump’s America-first MAGA team that was designed to oppose and dismantle the existing globalist swamp in Washington was attacked relentlessly and has itself been devoured by the swamp creatures instead. Team members Michael Flynn, K.T. McFarland, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, Derek Harvey, Rich Higgins, Adam Lovinger, Steve Bannon, and Sebastian Gorka – all disappeared. Obama loyalists H.R.. McMaster, Dina Habib-Powell, Allison Hooker, Fernando Cutz, Andrea Hall, Rear Admiral David Kriete, Jessica Cox, Stephanie Morrison, Heather King, and Robert Wilson – all reappeared. Why?

The immediate and complete dismantling of the Trump team was necessary for the globalist forces to control the information. Control of the information is what controls public opinion. Public opinion is the weapon of choice in an information war. Obama’s globalist Common Core re-education curriculum was designed to tilt American youth toward future globalism and Islam. The ongoing globalist media assault on President Trump was designed to discredit his Americanism and tilt American public opinion toward globalism and Islam. The coordinated globalist assault on President Trump’s America-first team was deigned to control the information the President receives and tilt his opinion away from his signature Americanism toward globalism and Islam.

So, who controls the information that President Trump now receives in this information war? Who controls the re-education of President Trump? How influential are the opinions of President Trump’s children who have been educated toward globalism and raised on John Lennon’s “Imagine” instead of the “Star Spangled Banner.” Whoever controls the information controls the future. Sadly, the MAGA performance review indicates that GAMA has replaced MAGA. The GAMA globalists who replaced Trump’s America-first MAGA team now control the information in the President’s daily briefings.

The MAGA performance review concludes:

  1. Ivanka and Jared Kushner have become impediments to President Trump’s America-first agenda and should no longer serve in any official capacity.
  2. The West Wing Democrats are impediments to President Trump’s America-first agenda and should no longer serve in any official capacity.
  3. The leftover Obama replacement team is committed to sabotaging MAGA.

The MAGA performance recommendation is:

  1. President Trump fire the entire team of West Wing Democrats including Cohn and Tillerson – You’re Fired!
  2. President Trump fire the leftover Obama replacement team starting with H.R. McMaster – You’re Fired!
  3. President Trump rehire the America-first Trump team loyalists and staff his administration with personnel committed to MAGA – You’re Hired!

The MAGA performance review forecast:

  1. The short term upheavals resulting from the massive firing and hiring recommendations will salvage MAGA and allow the President to pursue and achieve his ambitious campaign promises.
  2. If President Trump does not regain control of the information and continues to allow GAMA to control it he will lose his presidency and ability to govern. He will become insignificant.

Bourne Attorney Makes It Official, Will Run For Attorney General in Massachusetts

BOURNE, Mass. /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Bourne attorney, James “Jay” McMahon, has officially thrown his hat into the ring to run as the Republican candidate for the Office of Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Last month, at an event held in Westport, sponsored by the Massachusetts Republican Assembly, McMahon formally announced for the position, kicking off his campaign.

McMahon delivered a fiery speech in which he ripped into the current Attorney General, Maura Healey, for violating the constitutional rights of Massachusetts citizens, as opposed to upholding them.  Several times throughout his speech, McMahon would ask the rhetorical question, “Whose side is she on?”  He pointed out that the President’s temporary travel ban from six failed nations is to protect Americans from terrorists until the initiation of “Extreme Vetting”, but that Attorney General Healey is suing the Trump Administration to overturn that Executive Order.

In addressing last week’s Court Decision by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, McMahon said that the decision holds that state law does not require court officers and local authorities to hold illegal aliens on ICE civil detainers, and that it is a sad day for law enforcement, but not for Healey.  McMahon cited news articles quoting Maura Healey and ACLU lawyers as saying, “This is a victory for us, we won!”  McMahon asks, “Whose side is she on?”

McMahon hit on 3 points which he said will be central to his campaign:

  1. Resolving the Opiate Crisis in Massachusetts;
  2. Halting the erosion of Public Safety; and,
  3. The current violations of civil rights of citizens, such as Christian churches and gun owners, to name a few.

As his speech concluded, McMahon stated that there are many people and organizations currently suing Maura Healey in order to exercise their constitutional rights.  McMahon explained those rights as found in the federal and state constitutions.

McMahon stated that, “You will not have to sue me in order to exercise your constitutional rights.  I will uphold those rights as written in the Constitutions, as my oath of office would require of me. Maura Healey will not do this; but I will!”

After encouraging the crowd to join his campaign, McMahon also promised, “Your rights, and your guns, are safe with me!”

Where Did Antifa Come From?

Click for AUDIO version.

Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you are probably now familiar with the term, “Antifa,” but are not too sure what it represents. In a nutshell, it is an abbreviated form of “Anti Faschists,” and is at the heart of the violent protests plaguing America. Antifa was there at Charlottesville, VA, in Phoenix, AZ for the Trump rally, at the desecration of several Civil War monuments, and more recently at the heart of the violent Berkeley, CA protests. These were ugly hostile environments the police had difficulty controlling.

Make no mistake, Antifa promotes anarchy, and proudly proclaims itself as such in their literature and web pages. They are also communists with a deep aversion to capitalism. They claim their group descends from a like-titled European group of the early 20th century. However, I could find no evidence today’s Antifa knows what Fascism truly means. They claim to want to destroy what they call the “American Plantation.” From their perspective, they see slavery in every minority group and abhor their white Christian “masters.” Yet, many of their members are middle class whites. They want liberation and freedom ON THEIR TERMS, not as defined by the Constitution. As such, they advocate the overthrow of the United States government and are committed to combating any sign of support for the government or any other opinion conflicting with their own. And, No, they are most definitely not advocates of free speech as prescribed by the First Amendment.

In reality, Antifa’s roots are planted in the Occupy Wall Street Movement of 2011, a group of people seeking social and economic reform. Interestingly, the Occupy movement quickly faded from view following the re-election of President Barack Obama in 2012. However, after Donald Trump was elected in 2016, a period of social unrest grew, all aimed at resisting the new president at every turn. The tactics, unfortunately, were less peaceful and more militaristic. Consequently, Antifa began to flourish.

Antifa’s numbers are relatively small, but they are getting organized and beginning to recruit impressionable millennials either in school or fresh out of college. Many professors preach Socialist dogma to their students thereby influencing their motivation and perspective. As a result, they foster Antifa recruits.

Currently, the tactics of Antifa appear to be based on a “Minute Man” approach whereby whenever a major demonstration is led by Republicans, such as a pro-Trump rally, they rush to the scene and engage in vocal and violent confrontation. The theory is that if they do this enough times, they hope to suppress any outward signs of support for the president. It’s called “intimidation.” They also hope to spin the media to promote their values.

Antifa is now in the process of creating a network of chapters throughout the United States, the latest being in Philadelphia. Such meeting places are used to recruit and train new members in various organizational and communications tactics. The concern though is the teaching of terrorism, complete with military training.

The mouthpiece for Antifa is the web page “It’s Going Down,” which spreads information and encourages support for the group. The main web page for the group is titled, “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement,” which articulates their purpose and activities. They also claim to rely on donations and have established an Internet Fund drive. The irony here is that Antifa are devout anti-capitalists, yet when asked “Why do we ask for money?”, they claimed, “Sadly we have not freed ourselves from capitalism. We too need to eat and pay the bills.”

Antifa makes no pretense they are unwilling to use violence to serve their needs and have demonstrated their willingness to do so. Photos on their web site and elsewhere proudly display a variety of weapons and recruits learning how to use them. However, these are predominantly young people who want to graduate from playing “Call of Duty” on a computer to actually facing violent confrontation. I suspect many are naive about what they are doing and do not realize the consequences of their actions. This becomes a dangerous scenario that could lead to the deaths of either themselves or their opposition. Should they develop a well equipped arsenal, someone is bound to eventually pull a trigger and all Hell will break loose.

As real as the prospect of violence is, Democrats have been slow in condemning Antifa; only recently has Nancy Pelosi spoken against them, but we have yet to hear from Chuck Schumer, the Clintons, and former President Barack Obama. Their silence only serves to encourage the Antifa movement, not to suppress it. Even the Main Stream Media appears reluctant to take them to task.

Make no mistake, Antifa is worse than all of the left-wing nut jobs combined, including the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter. They are misguided, armed, and view themselves as international terrorists. This is not about “American Plantations”; it’s about the overthrow of the United States government. If you hear someone sympathize with Antifa, be sure to straighten them out.

The ‘Broken Window’ Democrat Party and Rise of ‘Political Crime in America’

James Q. Wilson and George Kelling in 1982 wrote in The Atlantic an article titled “Broken Windows.” Wilson and Kelling introduced the Broken Windows Theory (BWT) which used broken windows as a metaphor for disorder within neighborhoods. The theory links disorder and incivility within a community to subsequent occurrences of serious crime.

Wilson and Kelling wrote:

[A]t the community level, disorder and crime are usually inextricably linked, in a kind of developmental sequence. Social psychologists and police officers tend to agree that if a window in a building is broken and is left unrepaired, all the rest of the windows will soon be broken. This is as true in nice neighborhoods as in rundown ones. Window-breaking does not necessarily occur on a large scale because some areas are inhabited by determined window-breakers whereas others are populated by window-lovers; rather, one unrepaired broken window is a signal that no one cares, and so breaking more windows costs nothing. (It has always been fun.) [Emphasis added]

The Rise of Political Crime

The key notion put forward by Wilson and Kelling is that “at the community level, disorder and crime are usually inextricably linked, in a kind of developmental sequence.” Once order breaks down you have a growing number of people committing more and more serious crimes.

We are seeing the rise of “political crimes” in our neighborhoods, towns and cities.

Occupy Oakland riot.

In 2011 Democrats began encouraging people to “break windows” by supporting the Occupy Wall Street movement. Senator Bernie Sanders stated, “The Occupy Wall Street protests are shining a national spotlight on the most powerful, dangerous and secretive economic and political force in America.” Actor Woody Harrelson said, “I’m an anarchist and I do think things such as Occupy Wall Street are about getting a little closer to the solution.”

In a Weekly Standard column titled “Pelosi on Occupy Wall Street Protesters: ‘God bless them’,” John McCormack wrote:

During a press conference Thursday afternoon, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi praised those participating in the “Occupy Wall Street” protests. “God bless them,” Pelosi said, “for their spontaneity. It’s independent … it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused. And it’s going to be effective.”

Read more.

Occupy Wall Street began breaking windows, literally.

The Democrat Party, and then President Obama, failed to repair the broken windows beginning with the Occupy Oakland riots in California, which inextricably lead to the 2013 riots in Sanford, Florida, 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri and most recently the 2017 riots and death in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In fact, the Democrats are encouraging breaking windows, because “it has always been fun” so long as its the other party that gets hurt.

Violence begets more violence: From Sanford, Florida to Ferguson, Missouri

Ferguson, Missouri riot.

Fast forward to Ferguson, Missouri which experienced protests and riots that began the day after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014. Officer Wilson was acquitted of any wrong doing, which lead to more protests and riots.

This incident coupled with the shooting on February 26, 2013, in Sanford, Florida, when George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed race Hispanic man who was a neighborhood watch coordinator, fatally shot Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African American high school dropout. Zimmerman, under Florida’s stand your ground law, was acquitted of Martin’s shooting. The Obama Department of Justice reviewed the case for any civil rights violations but this was dropped citing “insufficient evidence.”

After the Trayvon Martin shooting former President Obama on July 19, 2013 said:

You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.  Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.  And when you think about why, in the African American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.

These remarks by former President Obama inextricably led to Ferguson and the empowerment of the Black Lives Matter movement which was created on July 13, 2013.

Charlottesville, Virginia and beyond

The Black Lives Matter website states:

Black Lives Matter is a chapter-based national organization working for the validity of Black life. We are working to (re)build the Black liberation movement.

This is Not a Moment, but a Movement.

#BlackLivesMatter was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted for his crime, and dead 17-year old Trayvon was posthumously placed on trial for his own murder. Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this country who actively resist our dehumanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society. Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes.

Antifa face off against neo-Nazis as cars plow into the crowds.

August 12, 2017 saw riots, mayhem and a murder committed in Charlottesville, Virginia when two extremist groups faced off one against the other. Disorder and incivility were on full display near the home of Thomas Jefferson, the founder of the Democrat Party.

Since the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump we have witnessed a coalition of Democrats, the anti-Fascist (ANTI-FA) movement, neo-Nazis and Black Lives Matter working to cause discord and incivility. Calls for the death of politicians and their supporters are part and parcel of the daily news.

Even Maria Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat member of the Missouri State Senate, openly hoped for the assassination of the President of the United States.

These are all broken windows leading to more broken windows and eventually leading to more violent crimes, destruction and even death.

Why we must fix, not break, windows!

Is it too late to fix these broken windows? No. Not if the Democrat Party stands firm against anymore breaking of windows. Let’s all pray that they come to their senses and call for windows to be repaired, not broken.

When people see it’s alright to break windows the question is: What will they break next? We know that violence begets more violence. Where will the Democrat Party, and its base, break the next window?

We must be window lovers and resist the window breakers.

Remember …if a window in a building is broken and is left unrepaired, all the rest of the windows will soon be broken.

Symone Sanders, former national press secretary for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, was introduced by her co-emcee Mark Thompson. He said, “She is known for pushing back against those devils on CNN.”

Other speakers at the event included U.S. representative for New York’s 5th congressional district Gregory Meeks, president of the NAACP New York State Conference Dr. Hazel Dukes, national co-chair for the Women’s March Tamika Mallory, pastor and social activist Jamal Bryant, and Stephen A. Green, president of The People’s Consortium.

WHO is COLIN K and Why are we here?

Colin Kaepernick, a former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, caused conflict last season by kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest police brutality and racial oppression. He inspired several other players to follow suit or make similar gestures, leading to debate about whether athletes should publicly engage in political discourse — and how actively.

Kaepernick is a free agent without a team. And while he is not at the top of his game, as he was when he led the 49ers to the Super Bowl four years ago, many analysts believe teams are refusing to sign him because of his political nature, not his ability.

Nakia E, Cook sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing” the “black national anthem, the ‘real’ national anthem.” (Simone Sanders)

Lift Every Voice and Sing by James Weldon Johnson

Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud … [tape begins here] … as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us, Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won.] END

“Lift Every Voice and Sing” was first written as a poem. Created by James Weldon Johnson, it was performed for the first time by 500 school children in celebration of President Lincoln’s Birthday on February 12, 1900 in Jacksonville, FL. … adopted by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) as its official song.

“…. As Kaepernick’s protest drew criticism, so did the rally in support of him. A small group of protesters stood across Park Ave., some waved a Thin Blue Line flag meant to honor living and fallen law enforcement officers while a man held a sign with the words ‘COLIN THE COMMIE.’”

“They are alleging that there is racism involved in Kaepernick not signing in the N.F.L., but he’s a free agent to sign or not sign,” said Karen Braun, who was among the JDL counter-protesters. “Was race the intent? No one can prove that.” [WHAS11-ABC]

COMMENTS – pro and con from their Facebook page:

“With you all the way Kaep and the other players who have the courage to throw a fist in the air, and or stand shoulder to shoulder with those players who protest.”

“What has the flag done for our people? It’s a symbol of country built on hate, genocide, oppression and racism. FUCK the flag.”

“The funniest part about this rally is that the NFL league office doesn’t do the hiring, individual teams do. What a waste of time. The NFL itself has not punished any players for kneeling during the anthem. This is 100% a complete waste of time.”

“Why have a rally for that lazy traitorous coward I hope the. NFL gets completely shut down over this”

“In my eyes anyone who doesn’t honor our flag is a coward.”

“If he wants to take a knee in protest, he has absolutely has that right. What’s really at question here is does an employer have a right to fire him for it?”

NFL contracts are not guaranteed except for a pre-determined amount at the contract signing. Kap made $16M in 2016 and his poor performance plus the system that the new head coach wanted to implement did not warrant the 49ers to keep him for the same amount in 2017. Kap opted out because he knew the 49ers would cut him anyway.

“A man may be paid great sums for his labors and YET his employer does not own his SOUL. If they choose to kneel and understand the consequences of kneeling (monetary fines or whatever sanctions imposed by NFL or team owners) then so be it! That is their right and each person must act according to their conscience. “

“We are protesting against NFL for violating Kapernick right to earn a living for his peaceful protest. Boycotting NFL is standing for Justice !!!!”

“He didn’t protest a country where he lived a lavish life with a wonderful adopted family or the country that pays him millions to play a game. He disrespected not only this country but every person that has served and paid the ultimate sacrifice so he could live in a country that allows him to be an entitled punk with zero respect for this country. It’s all about attention and it’s sickening.”


“What a complete joke. A spoiled child that threw a tantrum and was rejected by the country that made him rich. Maybe he’ll have to get a real job.”

Just A Note On Macron-Management by Hugh Fitzgerald

It has just been revealed that Emmanuel Macron, President of France, has in the first three months of his presidency spent more than $30,000 on make-up services. That would be a remarkable sum for anyone to spend, but what makes it even more remarkable is that Macron is only 39, the youngest French President ever, and therefore, one might assume, someone who would be least in need of such services, and certainly not to this expensive extent.

Even before this embarrassment, Macron had been stumbling. Just a few months ago, a political neophyte, he had defeated Marine Le Pen for the French presidency with an astonishing 65% of the vote. Now his popularity has plummeted to 36%. What explains this colossal drop? Partly it has to do with Macron’s authoritarian personality, revealed only after the election, and most evident in the curt way he treated the army chief of staff, who objected to defense cuts, leading to the general’s resignation. Partly it has to do with his proposed cut of 10 billion euros to spending on research, health, and housing, and on his controversial proposal to revamp the labor laws, making it easier for employers both to hire and fire.

But Macron’s rather cavalier views on Islam may also have played a part in his drop in popularity. During the election, he said little on the subject of terrorism. It was enough for voters that he was not Marine le Pen, who had been endlessly maligned in the media, labelled an “Islamophobe’ for expressing alarm both about what the Islamic texts and teachings inculcate, and about the observable attitudes and behavior of too many Muslims. But the little that candidate Macron did say on Islamic terrorism was disturbing. “We have a share of responsibility,” he warned, “because this totalitarianism feeds on the mistrust that we have allowed to settle in society…. and if tomorrow we do not take care, it will divide them [the Muslims] from us even more.”

So for Macron, it was “we” — the French — who must acknowledge responsibility for Muslim terrorism, because it is our mistrust of Muslims that causes them, in turn, to subscribe to Islamic “totalitarianism.” We must force ourselves not to “mistrust” them. But that’s an attitude that cannot be commanded. How should the French react, after each attack by Muslim terrorists, at Charlie Hebdo, at the kosher market, along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, at the Bataclan nightclub? How should they react as each thwarted attack — along the Champs-Elysees, outside the Louvre, in front of Notre Dame, beside the Eiffel Tower — is announced? With so much murder and so much mayhem, how can they not mistrust the Muslims in their midst? Macron followed up this impossible demand with a sentiment worthy of Pope Francis: To lessen this “mistrust,” Macron said, French society “must change and be more open.” More open to what? To Islam, of course.

On April 20, 2017, during the campaign, after an Islamic terrorist killed one police officer and wounded two others in Paris, Macron said: “I am not going to invent an anti-terrorist program in one night.” He had been a government official during two years of continuous terrorist attacks on French territory. Didn’t the public have a right to assume that he would have given some thought to anti-terrorist measures to be taken? Instead of insinuating that he was being unfairly asked to suddenly come up with “an anti-terrorist program in one night” (he was being asked no such thing), shouldn’t he at least have shown the French people that he had been thinking carefully about how to deal with the terrorist threat, and here were some of his thoughts?

Also disturbing was the revelation, during the campaign, that there were some doubtful Muslims on his staff. One of these was Mohamed Saou, who was discovered to have promoted on Twitter the Islamic statement: “I am not Charlie.” Sensing a potential scandal, Macron felt compelled to dismiss Saou on April 6. But on April 14, on a Muslim French radio station, Macron was caught on a “hot mic” describing Saou as a “good guy, a very good guy.” Is a Muslim who insists he would never express solidarity with the murdered cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo a “very good guy”?

On April 28, Mohamed Louizi, author of the book Why I Quit the Muslim Brotherhood, released a detailed article on Facebook that accused Macron of being a “hostage of the Islamist vote.” Republished by Dreuz, a Christian anti-jihad website, Louizi’s article gave names and dates, and explained how Macron’s political movement had been infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood militants. Since Macron has not refuted the article’s facts, we can assume it is correct. And if it is correct, then we have to worry about Macron, and it’s he who, with the election behind him, has to convince the French public that he recognizes the meaning, and menace, of Islam. It’s the only way to calm their fears.

Since being elected, Macron has announced the formation of a task force on terrorism, consisting of around 20 people, chiefly intelligence analysts, who will supervise and oversee all counter-terrorism efforts directly under the president’s authority. But this, while laudable, is not nearly enough; he has to express a different vision of France, one that has no room for a supposed “amalgame” with Islam.

Is Macron an open promoter of Islam in France? It is more politically correct to say that he is a “globalist” and an “open promoter of multiculturalism.” He does not want to think of France as too French. For he wants to deny the French that heightened sense of their own country, with a specific history, art, literature, politics — a French civilization — of which they have always been proud. Instead, he thinks of Islam as part of this new, multicultural amalgam that he claims France has become. When he visited London last February 22, he told an audience of expatriates that “French culture does not exist, there is a culture in France and it is diverse.” The same day he dared to dismiss one of the greatest sources of French national pride: “French art? I never met it.” Clouet, Chardin, Manet, Monet, Cezanne, Gauguin, Derain, Bonnard, Matisse, then, are apparently not French artists, for there is no such thing as “French art.”

If France is for Macron nothing but a cultural amalgam or olla-podrida, and there is no longer anything specifically French about that county’s civilization, then the Muslims in France are just as “French” with their Muslim culture as the French are with French culture. But the Muslims do not accept the idea of an “amalgam.” They do not celebrate multiculturalism. They want not a mixture of cultures, but for Islam to dominate. Macron fails to realize that it has not been the French who rejected the Muslims; France has made great efforts, teaching its language and its culture to many different kinds of immigrants. The country has been open and welcoming to these migrants and tried, with great success in most cases, to integrate them. That program of integration worked with immigrants from Portugal in the 1950s, from the French Antilles in the 1960s and, in the half-century since, with immigrants from all over: Eastern Europeans, Hindus from India, Filipinos, Brazilians, Andean Indians, Vietnamese Buddhists, and sub-Saharan African Christians. Only the Muslims have failed to integrate, that is have failed to willingly accept the laws, customs, understandings of the Infidel French. In French schools, it is Muslim students who refuse to study topics they deem anti-Muslim, as the Crusades or the history of the French monarchy, or as likely to encourage sympathy for the Jews, as the Holocaust. Meanwhile, Muslims press for ever greater attention being given in those same schools to the study of Islam.

In May, Macron visited West Africa, where French troops are engaged in a campaign against Islamic militants in Mali, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso and Mauritania, and where he promised to be “uncompromising” in the fight against the Jihadists. One wonders why he can be so forthright and clear-headed about the Islamic threat in West Africa, and at the same time fail to recognize the threat within metropolitan France from those millions of Muslims whose religion teaches them to hate the Kuffar, who are commanded to wage Jihad until the entire world is subjugated, and Islam everywhere dominates, and Muslims rule, everywhere. The fact that not all Muslims follow the Qur’an’s commands is slight consolation, for that may reflect not moral but prudential considerations. The time may not be ripe, as Muslims still constitute less than 10% of the French population. But the duty does not dissipate, and Muslims are patient. Macron recognizes a Muslim menace, but so far only in a not-in-my-backyard, limited-to-west-africa sort of way.

At this point, Macron has little to lose in taking a strong anti-Islam position. Everything that has happened since he won the election on May 7 has only increased alarm in France and in Europe. Just two weeks after he was elected, there was a major attack at a concert in Manchester. Other attacks have taken place since then in France, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, Finland. Jihadist attacks include the Barcelona van attack, a car attack on French police, a car attack on police in Belgium, a knife attack in Paris, a knife attack in Hamburg, an attempted bombing in Brussels, a car attack in Paris, a knife attack in London, a knife attack attempt in the United Kingdom, a knife attack in London, a hammer attack in France, a vehicle attack with knives at London Bridge, a machete attack attempt outside Buckingham Palace, a machete attack in Brussels, a second machete attack attempt in Brussels, a stabbing attack in Turku, a machete attack outside Buckingham Palace…and these are only the ones that come instantly to mind.

President Macron is surely aware of all this. It’s time he started to talk about Jihadists in Paris the way he talked about them in West Africa. He needs to stop painting his face, and start telling his own people, the French people, that this entirely factitious ‘“amalgame” of Muslim and French culture does not exist, that French civilization — its politics, its art, its literature, its music, its philosophy — is eminently worth defending, and that if Muslims have their way, France would end up looking, at best, like one of the dreary North African countries. What Macron needs most is not all that expensive makeup and the services of some pretty esthetician, but a makeover in his understanding, so that he will sound the way in these parlous times he ought to sound, which is to say, a lot less like Tariq Ramadan, and a lot more like Charles De Gaulle.

Tribal Warfare in Charlottesville Virginia

Politics in the United States has sunk to the lower depths. It’s tribal warfare. You can’t talk politics: everyone’s angry and full of hate. It’s impossible to debate the issues with flaming partisans. In Charlottesville VA on August 12th, warring clans marched into battle.

And the TV screen trembled with indignation! A woman was killed by a car rammer in Charlottesville VA and the president of the USA dared to condemn the violence “on both sides.” Say what? Good came to fight Evil and he can’t see the difference? Blind in both eyes, he finds excuses for the lowdown killers. The journalists, experts and guests at CNN Intl. are in heaven. Perched on the summit of an audiovisual Sinai, they throw the tablets of the new law down on the noggin of the detested president. Isn’t he the one that called out President Obama for failing to say “radical Islamic terrorism?”  And now he can’t say “racist anti-Semitic white supremacist neo-Nazis”! They marched with Ku Klux Klan torches, carried crusader shields, swastika flags, and other such paraphernalia. They chanted “Jews will not replace us” [what an idea] and went in your face to remind Blacks of the good ol’ days of free-for-all lynching. Granted, antifa, Black Lives Matter, and assorted champions of noble causes-also armed with helmets, clubs, and shields-traded blows with the bad guys. But you don’t say “there was violence on both sides!” That’s a feather in the cap of sleazy whites uber alles chieftains, David Duke and Richard Spencer.

Well, for once, I agree with CNN & Cie. This is no time for wriggling. You denounce the guilty party now, and from now on, no matter what their causes or actions. And retrospectively!  Back when Barack Obama was refusing to denounce Islamic terrorism, our friends at CNN poked every which way at his questionable indulgence for the racist anti-Semitic Islamists.

In fact, they didn’t.

How about the recent Temple Mount crisis? The whole world and its brother didn’t ask for both sides to reduce the temperature? Orders didn’t come from the UN to CNN not to mention, hmmm, the US president, telling Israeli authorities to lower their damn guard so the Muslim rioters could cool their heads? There wasn’t any shilly shallying about blaming the killers that stashed their weapons in the al Aqsa mosque? No one was deluded enough to equate the violence of the assassins with the violence of the metal detectors?

The truth is, they did.

North Korea is promising to send us their nuclear warheads as fast as an Amazon delivery, and this disgraceful president that doesn’t dare to condemn those evil white supremacists (the Whites akhbar) is threatening to rain down fire and fury on a North Korea known for its hypersensitivity to threats. For once he’s right? We’re not going to wait to be bombed to smithereens before defending ourselves?

Sorry to disappoint you. The Trump is accused of pouring oil on the fire.

At CNN Intl. they’ve discovered the golden moral compass and it leads them day and night. It’s not only CNN, but that channel is my window on a world gone bats. Who started trouble in the quiet college town of Charlottesville with its balmy southern climate? Certainly not the city council that voted to evict the statue of General Robert E. Lee from his park, and rename it Emancipation Park. This iconoclasm is trendy in the United States. The Black Lives Matter dudes and fellow progressives are on the warpath against symbols of the pro-slavery Confederates. The Civil War is over, the North won, the Union is clinched, but suddenly the memory got revived and it’s unbearable. In Durham North Carolina noble Progressives put a rope around the neck of the statue of the unknown Confederate soldier, brought it down, and stomped it to death. The scene was so “Saddam Hussein” that they forgot how anti-war Progressives accused our troops of staging the scene in liberated Baghdad.

And it’s all the rage. We can’t keep up with the series of statues crumpled and wrecked by furious mobs. Will nothing soothe the terrible pain of the descendants of slaves than the complete elimination of all historical evidence of the deplorable slaveholding ideology of those old time Southerners? Yes, replies Derreck Kayongo, CEO of the Virginia Center for Civil and Human Rights. Yes, we have to pull down those statues and tear down those Confederate flags to the last shred. Mister Kayongo, an American citizen born in Uganda, was one of the Top 10 Heroes honored by CNN in 2011. Which proves that America is still the land of opportunity.

And it goes on and it spreads in a molten orgy of morality. The spotlights are beamed on the white terrorists, placed at the top of the list of national security threats. Commentators get a thrill out of badmouthing Trump advisors Steve Bannon (kicked out soon afterward) and Sebastien Gorka, accused of coziness with the l’alt-Right. They guffaw over Gorka’s recent statement about how the white man is blamed for this that and everything when the real danger is Islam breathing down our necks. The neo moralists have a fit! What’s this Gorka talking about? The white supremacists are the ones that made the most casualties!

Does 9/11 ring a bell?

I agree. Questionable elements shouldn’t be hanging around the White House! That’s why you made a stink abut Huma Abedin, whose mother sits high in the Muslim Sisterhood? You put fifty and fifty together and questioned President Obama’s connivance with the Brotherhood, didn’t you? And when it came to that damned Mideast conflict, you knew how to make the moral distinctions at every turn in the road, right? You were so careful not to put the mass killer shahids on the same level as the massacred Jews?

The answer is no!

Breaking news: two or three guys set up a killing field on the terrace of the Istanbul restaurant in Ouaga.  “Terrorists,” said our friends at CNN Intl., without the Islam and without the radical. Ho hum. We’ve learned a bit more about that nasty James Alex Fields Jr, who rammed his car into counter-demonstrators in Charlottesville, killing Heather Heyer and injuring several others. There’s a picture of him with the Vanguard America contingent, wearing the white polo and brandishing the logo on his shield. That’s him, a 20 year-old that French media won’t ever call a “youth.” At first his mother said she never asked him about his political activities. Then it was revealed that she’d called 911 several times. She was scared of her son. He hit her, threatened her with a knife. One time he grabbed the cell phone out of her hand and banged her on the head with it, but they’re not saying he’s mentally disturbed and I agree. He’s a killer, like Kobili Traoré who beat Sarah Halimi with a telephone, a landline in this case, and punched and bashed her, breaking the bones in her face, tortured her, mutilated her, subjected her to unspeakable abuse and then threw her to her death from her third story balcony. Who cares how much shit he smoked that afternoon, he’s a killer and he belongs in jail. He’s a jihadi that shouted allahu akhbar, boasted “I killed the shietan,” recited koranic verses so terrifying that armed policemen standing right in the building didn’t dare intervene.

That Fields guy killed in the name of White supremacy and Traoré in the name of Islam akhbar. You took care, Ladies and Gentlemen, to condemn both murderers with the same force and without ambiguity? The CNN anchor that commented with a choked voice on the memorial service for Heather Heyer, killed in cold blood by James Alex Fields Jr. whose nasty face looks down on us, it’s the same anchor that wept with the family of Sarah Halimi, and swore on his heart “never again?”

Well, no, not at all. Our media that have suddenly joined the school of the Moralist Philosophers didn’t think to place the jihadist murder of Sarah Halimi as the measure of vice.

The tragedy of Charlottesville spreads like wildfire, leaps across the ocean, sits in the front row of all our media, tells its story down to the last detail and the trumpets of universal moralization blare in all the lands.  And I agree. This President Trump is not up to par. Even if there’s some truth to what he says. Here in France, we know the antifa. We remember their antics last year when they hung out with the Nuit Debout crowd, beating up riot policemen, trapping cops in their torched patrol car, throwing firebombs at the huge plate glass windows of the Necker children’s hospital… The antifa came to Charlottesville armed for the scuffle, but this isn’t the time to split hairs. The president should just have named the Evil ones and left the subtleties for another day. I’m not going to defend him. I’m up on the holy mountain with public opinion. Give us at last our sorely needed integrity. Do what you want with the statues and other Confederate relics. I stand with the decent folk, the CNN journalists and their guests. They speak of what makes us Americans. Our values. What is lodged in a man’s heart.  His humanity…or its absence. They look like they’re touched by divine grace.

This isn’t the Soviet Union but there’s something of the Stalinist purges floating in the air: a familiar CNN anchor wonders how a single Republican Congressman can hold his tongue when it’s a question of Good and Evil. Are they crassly trying to hold onto their seats, their platforms, the voters’ fidelity? Aren’t they afraid of Judgement Day? They’re sellouts!  [Advertising break for Dubai, that will be followed in the coming hours by Doha, Turkey, Qatar Airlines, Middle East Marketplace (without Israel of course), the Kuwait Fund, and other orientalisms]. And they go on and on, their hearts pasted on their foreheads. And they invite Blacks … excuse me, African Americans,  top drawer professionals, to say the worst things about the United States, established on a foundation of genocide, slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination. The wounds are wide open and now this Charlottesville incident and this genocidal, slaveholding, racist president who doesn’t have a shred of a moral conscience… he doesn’t deserve to stay in office. Pulitzer Prize journalist and bestselling author Isabel Wilkerson tells us that America has never resolved this conflict; the Civil War is left hanging, waiting to be settled. In other wars, she says, making up world history as she goes, the losers are held accountable. Is she saying that the Southerners have never paid their dues?  Maybe so. We know some wars like that: 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973 and more and better, where the defeated aggressor demands painful concessions from a miraculously victorious Israel.

We haven’t made any progress? Civil rights, desegregation, black mayors, governors, Congressmen and even a president? High class black people march from one broadcast to the next, lower lip quivering, to tell us that nothing whatsoever has been settled, the pain never goes away, you can’t imagine how much it hurts us to see in stone and in bronze these traitors to our country, these men who went to war to keep their damned slavery, it hurts right now as if it were happening today. And I do understand, you wouldn’t believe to what extent I agree with you sista’. Get rid of those statues and don’t give another penny to the Palestinian Authority that glorifies the Islamic supremacists that kill my people. Those Fatahs-lists flirt with Hamas, make junk-peace in English and vow in Arabic to exterminate us…don’t have any more truck with them, draw a line and keep them on the far side of it. From now on we don’t confuse the racists and those who defend themselves against them.

Rabbi Martin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre comes forth to say that he would have advised President Trump to make a frank clear declaration against the racist anti-Semitic neo-Nazis. No room for white supremacists, no equivalence with the Leftists. The anchor, a CNN Intl. star, is delighted to hear these words from a rabbi that pronounced a benediction at Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. But Rabbi Hier doesn’t stop there. This misunderstanding, he says, distracts from the good things the president doing elsewhere. He’s confronting the North Korean dictator. It should have been done 15 years ago, we wouldn’t be faced with the threat of ballistic missiles today. But, he warns, those fascist marches are dangerous. The Nazis started like that, an unruly marginal group. They’re not the only ones, you know. The Iranians… the biggest revisionists. And we associate with them, we shmooze with them, we have tea with them, we give them billions. The very day when Khamenei once again denied the Holocaust, the pope received Rouhani. I would have advised the pope to tell him he won’t see him again as long as he continues with this Holocaust denial. The anchor’s face decomposes. And I send kisses to Rabbi Hier.

Once upon a time the question of Good and Evil was on the table. The detested president in those days was George W. Bush and his sin was saying that the discord with Saddam Hussein was a question of Good and Evil. Wouah! They accused Bush of making holy war against Iraq. Now CNN holds up the same guy as an example of the way a proper president should behave in time of crisis. They give us a replay of G.W. Bush’s visit to a local mosque on the 17th of September 2001, where he stands flanked by imams and declares that the terror attack that has just wiped out some 3,000 civilians has nothing to do with Islam, because Islam is a religion of peace.

Let’s admit, there might have lacked a smidgeon of discernment in that case but overall the message that radiates to the ends of the earth, this strong reaction to what might seem like presidential indulgence for a racist anti-Semitic fascist movement, is sane and healthy. The media didn’t do it before? OK, let’s not hold them to account for past mistakes. We’re in the realm of current events, the time is always ripe. Personally, I’m relieved. The lucidity that I have been pleading for over the past 17 years is finally shining. We won’t be told anymore that the women in pussyhats marching behind Linda Sarsour and her cronies in January were in the vast majority honest people defending noble values.http://familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/feminine-spring Antizionist anti-Semitic soldier of totalitarian Islam, determined to subject us to sharia slavery, Ms. Sarsour is a traitor to our cherished values. What’s more, she’s alive and active today. She’s not a monument to the glory of a Confederation defeated more than a century ago!

And we’ll shake a finger at the General Secretary of the UN who declared “Racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or Islamophobia are … poisons for our societies.” Whaat ? He can’t see the difference between the Islamists that want to kill us and our fear of that Islam? Where’s his moral compass?

According to the latest news, David Patterson, the driver who rammed into a pizzeria in the village of Sept Sorts, killing a teenage girl and injuring 13 people, is charged with murder and attempted murder, and under lock and key. The prosecutor had detected serious psychological problems, but the psychiatrist did not find an absence de discernment that could relieve him of responsibility for his act.

We still don’t know if Kobili Traoré will be judged for his crime.

GUERRE DES CLANS A CHARLOTTESVILLE VA

Paris le 21 août 2017

La politique, appauvrie, descend au niveau des guerres de clans aux Etats-Unis. On ne peut plus parler politique : on s’enrage et on se déteste. Le débat entre partisans enflammés est impossible. A Charlottesville VA le 12 août, deux tribus en sont venues aux mains.

L’indignation crève l’écran ! Une femme est morte écrasée par une voiture bélier à Charlottesville VA et le président des USA  ose condamner la violence des uns et des autres. Quoi ? Le Bien est venu combattre le Mal et lui, incapable de désigner le coupable, excuse le pire. La chaîne CNN, ses journalistes, experts et invités sont aux anges. Du haut d’un Sinaï audiovisuel, ils jettent les tablettes de la nouvelle loi sur la tête du président haï. N’avait-il pas en son temps dénoncé le refus du Président Obama de prononcer les mots « terrorisme islamique radical » ? Pour refuser à son tour de dire « suprémacistes blancs, néo-Nazis, racistes et antisémites » ! Ils ont défilé avec des flambeaux à la Ku Klux Klan, des drapeaux rouges frappés de la svastika, des boucliers de croisés  et autres symboles du cru. Ils ont crié « hé ho vous les Juifs, vous n’allez pas nous remplacer » [drôle d’idée] en faisant tout pour rappeler aux Noirs le bon vieux temps des lynchages. Certes, les antifa, les Black Lives Matter et autres champions de nobles causes, eux aussi munis de casques, de bâtons et de boucliers, ont échangé des coups avec les méchants. De là à dire qu’il y avait des fautifs des deux côtés, c’est faire une fleur aux détestables chefs des blancs uber alles, David Duke et  Richard Spencer.

Alors moi pour une fois je suis d’accord avec CNN et Cie. Ce n’est pas le moment de charrier. On dénonce les coupables ici maintenant et dorénavant, peu importe les causes et les actions. Et même à reculons. Quand Barack Obama refusait toujours de dénoncer le terrorisme islamique,  nos amis chez CNN examinaient sa complaisance douteuse sous tous ses angles. 

En fait non.

Prenons donc la récente crise au Mont du Temple. Le monde entier n’a tout de même pas demandé des gestes d’apaisement des deux côtés ? De l’ONU à CNN en passant par, tiens, la présidence des USA, on n’a pas enjoint les autorités israéliennes à baisser la garde afin de calmer les émeutiers musulmans ? On n’a pas manqué de sévérité envers les tueurs qui ont caché leurs armes dans la mosquée al Aqsa ? On n‘a pas mis sur le même plan la violence des assassins et la violence des portiques ?

A vrai dire, si.

La Corée du Nord promet de nous livrer ses armes nucléaires à la vitesse d’une commande Amazon et ce président honni, qui n’ose pas condamner sans ambiguïté les méchants suprémacistes blancs (les Whites akhbar) promet feu et colère à une Corée du Nord pourtant connue pour sa sensibilité aux menaces. Là au moins il a raison ? On ne va quand même pas attendre d’être bombardé avant de réagir. Désolée de vous décevoir. Le Trump est accusé de jeter de l’huile sur le feu.

Chez CNN on a découvert la boussole d’or et on la suit à longueur de journée et tard dans la nuit. Pas seulement CNN, mais cette chaîne-là est ma fenêtre grande ouverte sur un phénomène mondial. Qui est venu semer le trouble à Charlottesville, paisible ville universitaire au doux climat sudiste ? Certainement pas le conseil municipal qui a voté l’expulsion de la statue du Général Robert E. Lee du parc du même nom qui deviendra par la suite Emancipation Park. Cet iconoclasme est très tendance aux Etats-Unis. Les Black Lives Matter et autre progressistes font la chasse aux symboles de la Confédération esclavagiste. La Guerre Civile est achevée, le Nord a gagné, l’Union est scellée, mais soudain la mémoire ravivée devient insupportable. Si bien que des nobles Progressistes ont déboulonné, à Durham North Carolina, la statue d’un soldat inconnu de la Confédération. La scène était tellement « Saddam Hussein » qu’on a oublié que les Progressistes anti-guerre avaient à l’époque accusé les forces américaines d’une mise en scène.

Et c’est la rage. On ne compte plus les statues écrabouillées par des foules en colère. Faudrait-il, pour apaiser la souffrance des descendants d’esclaves, effacer l’évidence historique de l’adhésion des sudistes d’antan à cette institution déplorable ? Oui, répond Derreck Kayongo, P-D-G du Virginia Center for Civil and Human Rights. Oui, il faut déboulonner les statues et arracher les drapeaux de la Confédération partout et jusqu’au dernier. Né en Ouganda, devenu citoyen américain, monsieur Kayongo a figuré parmi les Top 10 Heroes nommés par la chaîne CNN en 2011. Comme quoi l’Amérique est toujours le land of opportunity.

Et ça se poursuit et ça se répand, une véritable partouze de moralité. La lumière est braquée sur les terroristes blancs, premiers sur la liste de menaces à la sécurité nationale. On dénonce tour à tour les conseillers Steve Bannon (finalement viré) et Sébastien Gorka, accusés d’affinités avec l’alt-Right. On ridiculise Gorka pour avoir dit récemment qu’on blâme à tort et à travers l’homme blanc alors que c’est l’Islam qui nous guette. Mais non, les moralistes s’insurgent, ce sont les suprémacistes blancs qui ont fait le plus de victimes.

9/11 connaît pas ?

Gare aux infréquentables sous le toit de la Maison Blanche ! Ce pourquoi vous avez dénoncé Huma Abedin, fille d’une Sœur Musulmane haut placée ? Vous avez soupçonné le président Obama de connivence avec les Frères du même non ? Quant à ce satané conflit du Moyen Orient, vous avez su à chaque tournant faire la part des choses, sans confondre les shahids massacreurs et les Juifs massacrés ?

La réponse est non !

Breaking news : deux ou trois personnes transforment la terrasse d’un restaurant à Ouaga en champs de tir.  Des terroristes, dit-on chez CNN, sans Islam et sans radical. Ho hum.  On en sait un peu plus sur le méchant James Alex Fields Jr, qui a foncé sur un groupe de contre-manifestants à Charlottesville, tuant une femme et blessant plusieurs personnes. Le voici en polo blanc avec le bouclier Vanguard America. C’est lui, un homme de 20 ans qu’on n’appelle pas un « jeune ». Sa mère avait dit qu’elle ne le questionnait jamais sur ses activités politiques. Par la suite, on découvre qu’elle avait téléphoné à maintes reprises à la police pour se plaindre de la violence de son fils qui la frappait, la menaçait d’un couteau. Tiens, une fois il lui a donné un coup sur la tête avec le téléphone portable qu’il lui avait arraché de la main, mais on ne le dit pas « déséquilibré » et je suis d’accord. C’est un tueur comme Kobili Traoré qui a frappé Sarah Halimi avec un téléphone, certes fixe, et lui a donné des coups de poing d’une telle violence qu’il a fracturé les os de son visage, qui l’a torturée, mutilée, qui lui a fait subir des abus innommables avant de la jeter, vivante, de son balcon du 3e étage. On s’en fout de savoir combien de pétards il avait fumé la veille, c’est un assassin et sa place est en prison. C’est un jihadi qui a crié allahu akhbar, qui s’est vanté d’avoir tué le shietan, qui a récité des versets du coran tellement terrifiants que la police n’a pas osé intervenir.

Ce Fields a tué au nom des Blancs suprêmes et Traoré au nom de l’Islam uber alles. Vous avez su, Mesdames Messieurs, condamner les deux meurtriers avec la même force et sans ambiguïté ? Le journaliste de CNN qui commente, la voix blanche, le service à la mémoire de Heather Heyer, tuée de sang-froid par James Alex Fields Jr. dont la photo nous regarde méchamment, c’est le même qui a pleuré avec la famille de Sarah Halimi en jurant « plus jamais ça » ?

Eh ben, non, pas du tout. Nos médias devenus soudain des philosophes de la moralité n’ont pas pensé établir comme étalon de vice l’assassinat jihadiste de Sarah Halimi.

Le drame de Charlottesville court à toute vitesse comme un feu de forêt, traverse l’océan, s’imprime dans nos médias jusqu’au moindre détail et ça sonne, ça sonne, les trompettes de la moralisation universelle.  Et je suis d’accord. Ce Président Trump n’est pas à la hauteur. Même s’il y a du vrai dans ce qu’il dit. Les antifa, on les connaît. On se souvient de leurs exploits en marge du mouvement Nuit Debout. Les CRS bastonnés, les policiers piégés dans leur voiture en feu, des bouteilles incendiaires lancées contre les baies vitrées de l’Hôpital Necker enfants malades… A Charlottesville aussi ils sont venus équipés, mais ce n’est pas le moment de couper les cheveux en quatre. Le président n’avait qu’à signaler le Mal en laissant les nuances pour un autre jour. Moi, je ne le défends pas. Moi, je me place aux sommets avec l’opinion publique. Donnons-nous enfin l’intégrité qui nous manque cruellement. Faites ce que vous voulez des statues et autres reliques de la Confédération. Je suis avec les gens décents, les journalistes de CNN et leurs invités. Ils parlent de ce qui fait de nous des Américains. Nos valeurs. De ce qui se loge dans le cœur d’un homme. De l’humanité et de son absence. Ils sont comme touchés par la grâce. Ce n’est pas l’Union Soviétique mais il y a comme un air de procès stalinien : on demande comment un seul élu Republican peut se taire quand il s’agit ni plus ni moins que du Bien et du Mal. Cherchent-ils tout bêtement à protéger leur siège, leur programme, la confiance de leurs électeurs ? N’ont-ils pas peur du Jugement dernier ? Espèces de vendus !  [Plage publicitaire Dubai, qui sera suivie au fil des heures par Doha, la Turquie, Qatar Airlines, Middle East Marketplace (sans Israël bien entendu), le Kuwait Fund et autres orientalismes]. Et on poursuit, le cœur sur le front. Et on invite des Noirs… excuse me des African Americans de haut niveau professionnel pour dire tout le mal qu’ils pensent des Etats-Unis fondés sur le génocide, l’esclavage, la discrimination. Les plaies restent grand ouvertes et cette histoire de Charlottesville et ce président génocidaire, esclavagiste, raciste dénué de toute conscience morale n’est pas digne de rester en place. Isabel Wilkerson, journaliste et auteur primé, nous apprend que les Américains n’ont jamais résolu ce conflit, la Guerre Civile reste comme suspendue en attente d’un bilan. Dans d’autres guerres, dit-elle, inventant l’histoire du monde au pied levé, les vaincus doivent rendre des comptes. Selon elle donc les sudistes n’ont jamais payé leur forfait ? Soit. On connaît des guerres comme ça : 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973 et j’en passe et des meilleures, où les agresseurs vaincus demandent aux Israéliens victorieux des concessions douloureuses.

On n’a pas fait des progrès ? Les droits civiques, la déségrégation, des élus noirs, un président noir, des Noirs qui défilent d’une émission à l’autre, la lèvre tremblante pour dire qu’on n’a rien réglé du tout, ça fait mal depuis toujours et tout le temps, vous ne pouvez pas vous imaginer le mal que ça nous fait de voir en pierre et en bronze ceux qui ont trahi notre pays, qui ont fait la guerre pour garder leur satané esclavage, ça nous fait mal comme si c’était aujourd’hui. Et je comprends, vous ne pouvez pas savoir à quel point je suis d’accord avec vous sista’. Enlevez les statues et ne donnez plus un centime à l’Autorité Palestinienne qui glorifie les suprémacistes islamiques qui tuent les miens. Ces Fatahs-là fricotent avec le Hamas, font la paix frelatée en anglais et promettent de nous exterminer en arabe, c’est fini l’indulgence, on tire un trait et on ne confond plus les racistes et ceux qui se défendent contre eux.

Rabbi Martin Hier du Centre Simon Wiesenthal est venu dire qu’il aurait conseillé au président Trump de faire une déclaration claire et nette contre les néonazis racistes et antisémites. Pas de quartier pour les suprémacistes blancs, pas d’amalgame avec les gauchistes. Son hôte, une star du CNN Intl., se réjouit d’entendre ces paroles de la bouche du rabbin qui avait officié à l’inauguration de Donald J. Trump. Mais Rabbi Hier poursuit : ce malentendu nous distrait du bien qu’il fait par ailleurs. Il confronte le dictateur nord-coréen. On aurait dû le faire il y a 15 ans déjà, on ne serait pas sous le menace des missiles balistiques aujourd’hui. Mais, dit-il, ces marches de fascistes sont dangereuses. Les Nazis ont commencé comme ça, un groupuscule turbulent. Il y en a d’autres, vous savez. Les Iraniens, les plus grands révisionnistes. Et on les fréquente, on shmooze avec eux, on prend le thé, on leur donne des milliards. Le jour même où Khamenei a nié, encore une fois, l’Holocauste, le pape recevait Rohani. Je lui aurais conseillé de lui dire qu’il ne le recevra plus tant qu’il continuera de nier l’Holocauste. Le visage du journaliste est défait. Et moi j’envoie des bisous au Rabbi Hier.

Du Bien et du Mal il en était question jadis. Le président honni à l’époque, c’était George W. Bush et son péché était de dire à propos de Saddam Hussein qu’il s’agissait du Bien et du Mal pardi ! On l’accusait de faire la guerre sainte contre l’Irak. Aujourd’hui CNN nous montre en replay le même personnage comme l’exemple du comportement qu’on attend d’un président en temps de crise : le 17 septembre 2001, G.W. Bush accueilli dans une mosquée de la ville déclare que l’attentat qui vient d’assassiner près de 3,000 civils n’a rien à voir avec l’Islam, car l’Islam est une religion de paix.

Admettons, ça manque un peu de discernement mais dans l’ensemble le message qui rayonne aux quatre coins du monde, cette réaction à ce qui semblerait la complaisance présidentielle envers un mouvement fasciste, raciste et antisémite est juste et salutaire. Ne tenons pas rigueur à la presse pour ses erreurs du passé. On est dans l’actualité, l’heure est toujours propice. Moi, personnellement, je suis soulagée. La lucidité que j’appelle de mes vœux depuis 17 ans brille enfin. On ne nous dira plus que les femmes qui marchaient en pussyhat derrière Linda Sarsour et consœurs en janvier étaient dans leur grande majorité des honnêtes gens voulant défendre de nobles valeurs. http://www.infoequitable.org/printemps-feminin/
Antisioniste antisémite, soldate d’un Islam totalitaire, déterminée à nous soumettre à la sharia liberticide, Ms. Sarsour trahit nos valeurs. Qui plus est, c’est actuel. Elle n’est pas un monument à la gloire de la Confédération bel et bien battue il y a plus d’un siècle.

Et on fera la leçon au Secrétaire général de l’ONU qui a déclaré « Le racisme, la xénophobie, l’antisémitisme ou l’islamophobie sont (…) des poisons pour nos sociétés ». Quoi ? On met sur le même plan les Islamistes qui veulent nous tuer et la peur de leur Islam ? Ça va pas la tête !

Aux dernières nouvelles David Patterson, le chauffeur de la voiture bélier qui a tué une adolescente et blessé 13 personnes à la pizzeria de Sept Sorts, est mis en examen et écroué. Le procureur avait décelé chez lui de graves problèmes psychologiques, mais le psychiatre n’a pas retenu l’excuse d’absence de discernement.

Nous ne savons toujours pas si Kobili Traoré sera jugé pour son crime.

This Will Help Fix the Dysfunction in Congress by Bill Weld

Given the performance of Congress so far this year – and the past several years, for that matter – now is a good time to talk about term limits for the U.S. House and Senate.

Let’s face it: From the annual failure to approve a real budget to the recent healthcare legislation debacle, it has never been more clear that Congress is dysfunctional. For the most part, it is incapable of fulfilling even the most basic responsibilities.

When they return to Washington in a couple of weeks after their district and state “work periods”, the House and Senate will have only days to resolve fundamental issues of the debt ceiling and how much the government will spend in the coming year. Those are time crunches of their own making and dysfunction, and in the private sector, would be job-ending irresponsibility.

Something has to change. Electing a handful more R’s or D’s on the edges every two years isn’t going to fix it, when even in a “change” election, more than 90 percent of Congress will end up being the same career politicians who are the issue.

Getting things done for the right reasons

Imagine what would happen if Members of the U.S. House were limited by the Constitution to serving only three terms and Senators limited to two terms. Like Governors in 36 states where some degree of term limits are in place, they would know from Day 1 that they were sent to Congress to do a job, only have a certain period of time to do it, and would be driven not by securing a life-long career, but by a fear of failure in their one shot at serving and making a difference.

They might get some things done – and do them for the right reasons.

With term limits, legislators wouldn’t have time to get too comfortable in their seats, forget who sent them there, and shift their loyalties to the special interests who have literally billions of dollars invested in the status quo.

No longer would Congress be a career. It would be the opportunity to serve that the Founders envisioned.

Why Americans want term limits

The American people want term limits. Poll after poll, for many years, have shown overwhelming support. That’s why so many states have enacted them for governors and state legislatures. The problem, obviously, is that the one group who don’t want them are the people in power and the special interests who depend on them.

Congress won’t fix itself. That is abundantly clear.

Fortunately, if Congress won’t act on a constitutional amendment to put federal term limits in place, the founders presciently gave the American people a way to amend the Constitution without Congress’ approval. That solution is an Article V Convention to deal specifically with the question of term limits.

If two-thirds of the states pass bills calling for such a convention, Congress is legally bound to convene one – with the delegates chosen by the respective states. If and when the convention approves a proposed term-limit amendment, it goes to the states for ratification, bypassing Congress.

It’s a dramatic solution. But it’s a dramatic problem, and we all know that Congress won’t fix it on their own.

ABOUT BILL WELD

William “Bill” Weld was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 1990 with 51 percent of the vote and re-elected in 1994 with 71 percent of the vote. He was a Republican Governor in a highly Democratic state. He attributes his landslide victory to serving all the people, and not just voters from his political party.

In 2016, he was the Libertarian nominee for Vice-President of the United States.

Meet the Corporations Supporting the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Assault on Christians and Conservatives

D. James Kennedy Ministries has filed a defamation lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) over the reckless and politically motivated use of the “hate group” tag.

Click here to see the corporate supporters of SPLC.

A spokesman for Kennedy Ministries said:

It’s completely disingenuous to tag D. James Kennedy Ministries as a hate group alongside the KKK and neo-Nazis. We desire all people, with no exceptions, to receive the love of Christ and his forgiveness and healing. We unequivocally condemn violence, and we hate no one.

It’s ridiculous for the SPLC to falsely tag evangelical Christian ministries as “hate groups” simply for upholding the 2,000-year-old Christian consensus on marriage and sexuality. It’s nothing more than an attempt to bulldoze over those who disagree with them, and it has a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion in a nation built on that. We decided not to let their falsehoods stand.

SPLC’s so-called “hate map” has been linked to violent attacks against conservatives in the past. In 2012, a gunman wounded a Family Research Council (FRC) employee when he attempted to gain access to the organization’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. The suspect would later tell FBI investigators he targeted FRC because it was listed as an “anti-gay group” by SPLC and “planned to kill as many people as possible and then to smear [Chick-fil-A] sandwiches on their faces as a political statement.”

SPLC was also linked to the recent attack on the Republican Congressional baseball team practice when U.S. Representative Steve Scalise wounded by a gunman who was reported fan of SPLC’s Facebook page, in addition to other leftist groups.

Other conservative organizations labeled as “hate groups” by SPLC merely for their conservative principles and Judeo-Christian beliefs include Alliance Defending Freedom, American Family Association, organizations opposing illegal immigration, and many more.

The Kennedy Ministries lawsuit is a serious matter because SPLC sits on top of a massive warchest–an endowment of over $300 million–to finance it’s legal battles and political attacks. The Washington Times reports SPLC’s rating was downgraded last year from a “C+” to an “F” for having an inordinate amount of reserve assets compared to annual operating costs. William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection suggests “SPLC’s bad habit sensationalizing and politicizing ‘hate’ ” is designed “to generate even more money for its already bloated coffers.”

Unfortunately, ‘sensationalizing hate’ appears to work for liberal corporations eager to help fund SPLC’s agenda. Both Apple ($1 million) and JPMorgan Chase ($500,000) have pledged to massive donations of corporate dollars in recent days. Apple has also launched a platform to solicit donations to SPLC through it’s iTunes store. Incidentally, the Hollywood liberal icon George Clooney he would be donating $1 million through his foundation as well.

Apple and JPMorgan Chase aren’t the only companies supporting SPLC’s defamation and targeting of conservatives. We’ve compiled a list of sixteen other corporations that directly enable SPLC’s politically motivated attacks. Our SPLC resource page documents the financial relationships between companies like Charles Schwab, Kraft Heinz, Newman’s Own, Verizon, and more and this radical group whose misleading information has helped inspire true violence.

The lawsuit brought by Kennedy Ministries is a first step to defunding SPLC, but conservatives can support that goal every day through informed shopping decisions.

Free Speech: The Left Moves In for the Kill

The campaign to label all disagreement as “hate speech” is taking victims. My latest in PJ Media:

The Left is mounting an all-out assault against the freedom of speech, and is using Charlottesville as its Reichstag Fire moment to try to crush all dissent.

Several days ago, I received an email that set in motion a chain of events leading to my website, Jihad Watch, being dropped from PayPal. After an immense public outcry, the Jihad Watch PayPal account was restored — not that I ever intend to use it again. But this episode illustrates the Left’s determination to silence all of its foes rather than debate them, and these fascists won’t rest until no one dares oppose their agenda.

The email that started this incident has ominous implications far beyond the incident itself. Far-Left journalist Lauren Kirchner sent similar emails to other counter-jihad sites as well — here are her questions, along with the answers I sent her:

1) Do you disagree with the designation of your website as hate or extremist? Why?
Yes, certainly I do. For years, Leftists and Muslim groups with numerous ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood have smeared as “hate” all attempts to speak honestly about the motivating ideology behind jihad terrorism.

In reality, it is not hateful, racist or extremist to oppose jihad terror, and the claim that it is [is] not only libelous but insidious: the intent has clearly been to intimidate people into thinking it wrong to oppose jihad terror, and it has worked, as illustrated by the neighbors of the San Bernardino jihad murderers, who saw suspicious activity at their home but didn’t report them for fear of being “racist.”

2) We identified several tech companies on your website: PayPal, Amazon, Newsmax, and Revcontent. Can you confirm that you receive funds from your relationship with those tech companies? How would the loss of those funds affect your operations, and how would you be able to replace them?

The intent of your questions, and no doubt of your forthcoming article, will be to try to compel these sites to cut off any connection with us based on our opposition to jihad terror. Are you comfortable with what you’re enabling?

Not only are you inhibiting honest analysis of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, but you’re aiding the attempt to deny people a platform based on their political views. This could come back to bite you if your own views ever fall out of favor.

Have you ever lived in a totalitarian state, where the powerful determine the parameters of the public discourse and cut off all voice from the powerless? Do you really want to live in one now? You might find, once you get there, that it isn’t as wonderful as you thought it would be.

3) Have you been shut down by other tech companies for being an alleged hate or extremist web site? Which companies?

No. This is a new thing.

First came the ridiculous claim that opposing jihad terror was “hate,” and now comes the other shoe dropping: the attempt to cut out the ground from under the feet of those who “hate.” You can only hope that you aren’t similarly defamed one day; perhaps if that does happen, you will realize (too late) why the freedom of speech is an indispensable element of a free society.

4) Many people opposed to sites like yours are currently pressuring tech companies to cease their relationships with them — what is your view of this campaign? Why?

Nazis will be Nazis. Fascists will be fascists. Today they call themselves “Antifa” and the like, but they’re acting just like Hitler’s Brownshirts did, when they shouted down and assaulted anti-Nazi speakers. Now the violent thugs work in a more genteel fashion: they just pull the Internet plug on those they hate. You, Lauren Kirchner, are aiding and abetting a quintessentially fascist enterprise. Authoritarianism in service of any cause leads to a slave society despite the best intentions of those who helped usher it in.

I was trying to appeal to any residual sense of decency and fair play that Lauren Kirchner may have had, but it was to no avail. Last Saturday at 1:45 p.m., ProPublica published its hit piece, and it led off with me:

Because of its “extreme hostility toward Muslims,” the website Jihadwatch.org is considered an active hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The views of the site’s director, Robert Spencer, on Islam led the British Home Office to ban him from entering the country in 2013.

But its designation as a hate site hasn’t stopped tech companies — including PayPal, Amazon and Newsmax — from maintaining partnerships with Jihad Watch that help to sustain it financially. PayPal facilitates donations to the site. Newsmax — the online news network run by President Donald Trump’s close friend Chris Ruddy — pays Jihad Watch in return for users clicking on its headlines. Until recently, Amazon allowed Jihad Watch to participate in a program that promised a cut of any book sales that the site generated. All three companies have policies that say they don’t do business with hate groups.

Within hours, PayPal bowed to this defamation. At 6:02 p.m., I got an email from PayPal saying:

[D]ue to the nature of your activities, we have chosen to discontinue service to you in accordance with PayPal’s User Agreement. As a result, we have placed a permanent limitation on your account.

Inside my PayPal account was a further notice:

When you signed up for your PayPal account, you agreed to our User Agreement and Acceptable Use Policy. Because some of your recent transactions violated this policy, we’ve had to permanently limit your account … This limitation cannot be appealed.

These vague messages illustrated the Kafkaesque nature of this Leftist enterprise: PayPal, like the SPLC itself, was acting as judge, jury and executioner. No discussion, no debate, no opposing view, no appeal was possible.

The SPLC never contacts its targets to ask them to respond to charges that they are “hate groups”; it simply hands down its ruling, which the establishment media uncritically accepts. And that’s that.

William A. Jacobson notes at Legal Insurrection:

SPLC, presumably ADL, and ProPublica just don’t like Robert Spencer’s opinions about the practice of Islamism and Jihad. Yet as we have seen in other contexts, rather than winning the war of ideas, they seek to stifle free speech and, in this case, dry up sources of revenue for their political opponents.

They failed this time. PayPal restored my account Monday night after being inundated with emails from people canceling their accounts over PayPal’s fascism.

But this is no time for complacency: PayPal hasn’t suddenly become hospitable to conservative views. The Left’s anti-free speech initiative is not going to stop.

They won’t stop until Jihad Watch is shut down, my books are not offered for sale on Amazon or anywhere else, and no one will dare host a speech by me or anyone else who dares to break with their ideological lockstep.

These fascists — who call themselves “anti-fascists” — are totalitarian: they are determined not to allow their opponents to murmur the slightest whisper of dissent.

Therefore I may be out of action before too long. This initiative is advancing very rapidly, and those who should be standing up to it — the establishment Republicans and the Trump administration — don’t show any sign of even being aware it is happening….

U.S. Has 3.5 Million More Registered Voters Than Live Adults

On May 11, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order establishing the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. Vice President Mike Pence chairs the Commission, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach serves as the vice chair.

On June 28, 2017 a press release from the office of Vice President Pence stated:

This morning, Vice President Mike Pence held an organizational call with members of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The Vice President reiterated President Trump’s charge to the commission with producing a set of recommendations to increase the American people’s confidence in the integrity of our election systems.

“The integrity of the vote is a foundation of our democracy; this bipartisan commission will review ways to strengthen that integrity in order to protect and preserve the principle of one person, one vote,” the Vice President told commission members today.

The commission set July 19 as its first meeting, which will take place in Washington, D.C.

Vice Chair of the Commission and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told members a letter will be sent today to the 50 states and District of Columbia on behalf of the Commission requesting publicly-available data from state voter rolls and feedback on how to improve election integrity.

On August 18, 2017 Tyler Durden wrote a column on Zero Hedge titled “U.S. Has 3.5 Million More Registered Voters Than Live Adults – A Red Flag For Electoral Fraud.” Durden reported:

According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It’s a troubling fact that puts our nation’s future in peril.

As reported by the National Review’s Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud.”

Murdock counted Judicial Watch’s state-by-state tally and found that 462 U.S. counties had a registration rate exceeding 100% of all eligible voters. That’s 3.552 million people, who Murdock calls “ghost voters.” And how many people is that? There are 21 states that don’t have that many people.

Nor are these tiny, rural counties or places that don’t have the wherewithal to police their voter rolls.

California, for instance, has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual voters. Perhaps not surprisingly — it is deep-Blue State California, after all — 10 of those counties voted heavily for Hillary Clinton.

Los Angeles County, whose more than 10 million people make it the nation’s most populous county, had 12% more registered voters than live ones, some 707,475 votes. That’s a huge number of possible votes in an election.

But, Murdock notes, “California’s San Diego County earns the enchilada grande. Its 138% registration translates into 810,966 ghost voters.”

State by state, this is an enormous problem that needs to be dealt with seriously. Having so many bogus voters out there is a temptation to voter fraud. In California, where Hillary Clinton racked up a massive majority over Trump, it would have made little difference.

Voter fraud is real. Every illegal vote takes away the voting rights of a legal voter.
