Treason: Two ‘Manchurian’ Presidents

You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of   avoiding reality.” – Ayn Rand


When the historical monuments were tumbled from their pedestals, many Republicans were surprised by how quickly such a thing could take place here. They haven’t read my warning about the American Manchurian President and the Obama/Putin Conspiracy. During all eight years of his presidency, Barack Obama openly showed his conspiracy with Putin for those who know Putin’s methods, tactics, and dirty tricks. I did and I warned you, but a corrupt Obama FBI sabotaged and banned my writings. The current debates involving the strange behavior of Justice Roberts and Russia, the Taliban, and war in Afghanistan have been discussed by me years ago clearly showing Russia’s treacherous policy against America. The answer to both issues is Knowledge of Russia and her Security apparatus and to demand security from our government. And this is one of the reasons we don’t understand what is happening to America and the predicament that is tearing apart America the Beautiful. Listen to me, writing in 2016-2017 in this e-magazine:

The Russian Connection

”As a matter of fact, a lot of Socialist and KGB methods have been implemented in the U.S. during the last three decades, especially the last eight years of Obama’s administration. The Democrat Party has become America’s Socialist Party embracing the KGB’s methods of implementing Soviet Socialism. To prove my point I’d like to present the part played by the Obama/Putin Conspiracy—a military collaboration, which I described in my preceding columns. The following list represents military collaboration within the Obama/Putin Conspiracy during all eight years of Obama’s presidency:

  1. Killing of bin-Laden
  2. Invasion of Libya, conspiracy of Obama, Putin, and French Pres. Sarkozy.
  3. Benghazi, murder of the U.S. ambassador Stevens to provide arms to Assad’s Syria and Iran.
  4. “On 6 August 2011, a U.S. Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter was shot down while transporting a quick reaction force attempting to reinforce an engaged unit of Army Rangers in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. The resulting crash killed all 38 people on board—25 American specialists … Fifteen of the Navy SEALs that were killed were members of the Naval… “
  5. The return of the war-deserter Bergdahl from Afghanistan for the release of five Taliban commanders.

The Afghanistan story, I have explained in my preceding columns, Russia was working with the Taliban and needed the return of several famous commanders imprisoned in America. The deal was manufactured by the Obama/Putin Conspiracy using the family of a mentally unstable individual.”  The idea of Obama/Putin collaboration was introduced completely in my two books, talking about ongoing WW III. And that war is the crux of the matter—Obama has brought the war waged by Soviet Socialism to our American soil, by allowing his party to become a Socialist one.

Those Who Forget History Doomed to Repeat it

Recent reports have alleged that the Russian government offered monetary bounty-rewards to Taliban terrorists for killing American soldiers. I don’t know whether Trump was informed of that or not, at any rate I don’t trust the FBI nor any of Obama’s Intel. I was writing about the Soviet collaboration with Taliban and the dirty tricks against American military for years. My writings was banned to cover-up both a corrupt FBI and the Obama administration over one particular reason to prevent the Truth about Evil-Treason by the Dems’ leadership to be exposed. And today Queen-of-Socialist Charlatans Nancy Pelosi continues covering-up the Dems leadership and Treason committed by them, by playing with Americans lives in Afghanistan for decades… In the best traditions of Stalinism: “never admit crime committed, instead accuse the opposition in that exact crime,” she is lying and accusing Trump in the crime committed by the Democrats…

The Soviet invasion in Afghanistan began as the war against Western civilization and American capitalism. Yes, the Russian government offered monetary bounty-rewards to Taliban terrorists for killing American soldiers. It has been doing that since its invasion to Afghanistan—a very sophisticated operation against America. I had described that exact Russian operation against the American Military in my column The KGB’s Roots and Pedigrees, October 19, 2017.  Reading that column will educate you in term of the KGB/Menace, it’ll open your eyes on the Obama/Putin Conspiracy and the Treason committed by the Democrat’s leadership…

Do you really believe that the 9/11 terror attack of the twenty-first century came from Afghanistan?  I do not.  Do you think that the spread of terrorism across the globe to sixty countries also came from the Taliban or al-Qaeda?  No chance. We are in the historic struggle of the twenty-first century against criminals of the twentieth century. And that is my main point in WW III—the Russian Connection. It began many decades ago and continues with the Clinton Mafia–my book, Socialist Lies, presents the Truth in details. Reading it you will grasp my point of knowledge and memory discussed in the book, which is connected to the article below:

The National Review, Did Britain Fall into Putin’s Trap in Prosecuting a Russian Dissident? By CLAIRE BERLINSKI, May 11, 2016. The author has a legitimate point describing the current predicament in the world: “Having failed to finish off conclusively the Communist system, we are now in danger of integrating the resulting monster into our world. It may not be called Communism anymore, but it has retained many of its dangerous characteristics… Until a Nuremberg-style tribunal passes its judgment on all the crimes committed by Communism, it is not dead and the war is not over.”

From my experience this is correct and also the reason I am identifying “the resulting monster” that has become post-Soviet Russia and writing about Soviet Fascism for the last twenty years. Several writers have caught the scent of Fascism about the regime, but nobody researched the issue and identified the ideology I have presented. The Russian Connection October 14, 2016 and Warning: The Russian Connection II, October 18, 2016

A leader of the Socialist Revolution, Vladimir Lenin has left advice for the leaders building a Socialist system— government-controlled Health Care system must be enacted first. Don’t attribute to Lenin any benevolence to mankind; health care is a matter of life and death, every citizen needs a well-functioning health care. Lenin’s socialism had a precise target, the entire population–it enslaved all citizens in this one shot. And this is not the first nor the last example of Soviet Socialism. Unfortunately Obama’s administration left more unknown yet obscure attributes of Socialism, set up in our system.

If you know the literature written by Vladimir Lenin and his Socialism, you will understand that Obamacare has little to do with health. Its main target was an existing system of health care—to destroy it. Then it planned to establish a Socialist model, which according to Lenin was supposed to be deeply connected to the budget and other monetary links of the government—the second Obama agenda to bankrupt the entire system. The GOP’s fiasco happened because they didn’t know Socialism. Like some dissenting Democrats, they also don’t know Josef Stalin’s Doctrine on One Socialist World Government, well known to Barack Obama. If you want to know what is ahead of us, please read my conversation with Rush Limbaugh, pp. 571-574, Baltic Winds: Testimony of a Soviet Attorney, Xlibris, 2002.

Gain Wisdom and Speak the Truth!

Taking Crimea was the usual behavior of an aggressor who senses the absence of punishment. Russia has never stopped its aggressive, criminal behavior since the Socialist coup date in Russia, 1917. After the Reagan presidency Russia resumed its behavior, something I have written and reported on for the last twenty-five years, while our media kept largely silent on such matters, practically withdrawing from the discussion and depriving Americans of the strange, tragic events within the Putin administration.

This lack of knowledge was the primary reason the news from Moscow was misinterpreted—causation and linkage to past behaviors had been lost in the minds of middle class Americans. Nothing substantial has changed in Russia: failed Soviet Socialism has been substituted by Crony capitalism under the KGB’s leadership. Yet the killing of innocents, war crimes, and the destruction of the land continued globally for all those years, without a proper definition of the ideology, causing suffering and grief to millions… The time was lost, the situation has changed dramatically lately in the direction I had predicted. Alas… Knowledge is power!

The recent headlines about Russia and its meddling in our election should not be surprising. The fact of the matter is that Russia’s aggressive posture attempts to overwhelm all aspects of human life—it is a Global War for power of the Mafia-State of Stalinism against Capitalism and Western civilization. The war resurrects all of Stalin’s methods, tricks, and devices that are so familiar to all former citizens of the socialist states. They have been given a foothold in America. Today Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea are together attacking Western civilization and America…

This war intensified when the leadership of Democrats took up the banner of Socialism, created by Stalinist dogma and openly entered social conflict against capitalism in America. And despite the fact of socialism’s inability to produce, it became a legitimate political and economic theory in America due to the effort of Bernie Trojan Horse Sanders. That was the reason I started my latest book Socialist Lies, presenting and identifying Marxism and Stalin’s dogma as a fallacy, fraudulent utopian concept. The term Con Man & Criminal, I have read in Barack Hussein Obama, by BRADLEE DEAN, Freedom Outpost, AUGUST 3, 2018.

His description of Obama as Con Man & Criminal reminded me my description of Comrade Stalin: “Marxist theory, which opened Pandora’s Box in the 19th century marched across the globe to the 20th century. It was used by thugs, charlatans, and criminals to acquire power, to fool, mislead, manipulate, and then to abuse and exploit people around the globe. The leader who had all the negative human characteristics mentioned above was Joseph Stalin.”  He left us his Doctrine of Soviet Socialism, used by the Socialist Mafia forces in America today. I called his Doctrine the Ideology of Soviet Fascism, implemented by the Obama/Putin Conspiracy in America…

Look at another announcement about the book titled The Manchurian President. “Aaron Klein has unmasked the most radical — and therefore dangerous — president by far this country has ever seen. The radical forces that shaped Obama, as revealed in this telling investigation, were not the best of the radical sixties, but the very worst — the anti-American, communist-supporting, terrorist fringe.”- David Horowitz, bestselling author. Yet, there had been two Manchurian Presidents in America, I have been written about the first for the last thirty years: Bill Clinton. Both had been chosen by the anti-American, communist-supporting, terrorist fringe, run and coordinated by the KGB. The critical issue for America is the investigation of both Manchurian Presidents to save the American Republic and show the incredible damage done by Socialist Mafia and Socialist Charlatans to our America the Beautiful over the last several decades.

If you want to know the Socialist Mafia, just pay attention to Socialist Charlatans: Nancy Pelosi, Tom Perez, James Clyburn, Dick Durbin, Donna Brazil, Debby Dingle, Keith Ellison, Comrade De Blasio, and many others.  Watch them and their speeches, they haven’t read 1984 by George Orwell—they live in Oceania and Vladimir Putin is their Master…American Patriots should rise up against fraudulent Socialism…  My friends it is time for us to speak the truth openly. We are people of worth, not to be ignored nor thrown under the bus for our opinions. Meantime, I am waiting for the DOJ’s investigation to see how it investigates the crime against the political system of the American Republic without reading my books and columns… We will see it soon…

Be ready for July 4th protests, riots and chaos by Socialist Charlatans in cahoots with street mobs.

WARNING: Facebook’s New Attack on Freedom of Speech — “The Spam Scam’

Facebook is taking the lead against those who share anything but a Marxist/Maoist message on their platform. Their new tactic is “The Spam Scam.”

If you “violate their community spam standards”, which are not defined, you will get the following message:

  • We limit how often you can post, comment or do other things in a given amount of time in order to help protect the community from spam. You can try again later. Learn More
  • If you think this doesn’t go against our Community Standards let us know.

The Spam Scam

Why is this new Spam community standard a scam?

Because:

  • Facebook users can unfriend those that they believe are scamming them.
  • Facebook users can restrict who posts on their individual or organizational pages.
  • Facebook users can block any other Facebook user from posting or even commenting on their Facebook pages.
  • Facebook users may report someone for violating or spamming their Facebook page.
  • Facebook users may delete, hide or turn off notifications of any person posting on their Facebook page.

In other words Facebook was originally designed to give power to the individual users. It was created as an open platform for the exchange of ideas. It was not built on the ideal that corporate would make all of these decisions. Rather each user would. Facebook is now a dictatorship run by bigots, racists, Marxists and those who do not want the truth shared among friends. Facebook is not friendly. Facebook does not want individuals to be empowered or to think for themselves. If you think for yourself you will end up in Facebook jail for the crime of spamming.

As Winston Smith, in the novel 1984, by George Orwell said:

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale – then the lie passed into history and became truth.”

Facebook is “the party” and is imposing its own spamming lies in order for certain users to share “the truth.”

Facebook and other social media giants are bound and determined to not allow President Donald J. Trump to win reelection. These media giants will deplatform, demonetize, shadowban, or otherwise suppress any person, organization or political party that they disagree with in principle. Add to this Facebook’s nefarious Spam Scam.

Facebook’s political bias, racism and hate.

Project Veritas published the following expose on Facebook:

  • Facebook Whistleblower: ‘I was seeing them interfering on a global level in elections’
  • Facebook Insider: Facebook Categorizes Trump Supporters With ‘Hate Organizations, Hitler, Nazis, MAGA’
  • Former Google HR Contractor, Now Senior Human Resources Business Partner at Facebook: ‘No One Has the White Man’s Back Anymore’
  • Facebook Content Moderator Israel Amparan: ‘Trump Supporters Are F*cking Crazy *ss *ssh*les’
  • Amparan: ‘[Trump Supporters Are] A Bunch of Sh*tty F*cking Rednecks’
  • Facebook Content Moderator Kassi Cimo: “Americans Should Take Iran’s $80 Million” Bounty on President Donald Trump “If It’s Gonna Save the Country, Why Not Do It?”

Conclusion:

Facebook has eclipsed bias and is now a hate group bent on destroying Americans who they find repulsive according to their nefarious “community standards.”

Facebook, like the main stream media, is at war with the American people who disagree with their world view.

While the anarchists are burning down America, the social media giants like Facebook are burning the Constitution of the United States of America.

We recommend readers to consider other social media platforms such as Parler, MeWe, Spreely, Mumblit and Gab.

Mastercard Changes Name To Equalitycard

PURCHASE, NY—Popular multinational financial services company, Mastercard Incorporated, which is known for its extensive line of credit, debit, and prepaid cards to process payments between card-issuing banks and merchants, has released a statement that they will now be known as Equalitycard. This shift in branding follows other companies who have made major branding changes due to their negligence in propagating racial stereotypes in America like Aunt Jemima syrup, Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, and Land O’Lakes Butter.

This massive change in branding awareness comes in the wake of protests pointing out how far we need to go in stamping out systemic racism, even if it is found in beloved food products. Financial products are now coming under fire as many consumers pointed out that the troubling phrase “Master” was in the name of Mastercard, leading many to think of a checkered past when slaveowners expected to be called “master.”

“Honestly, in 2020, there is no place in America for terms like ‘master’,” said Ajaypal “Ajay” Singh Banga, Equalitycard’s chief executive. “That is not an image we want to evoke when consumers engage in financial transactions that might place them massively in debt to us, through late fees and massive interest charges. Equalitycard will always promote the equality of cardholders of all races.”

At publishing time, several other popular American institutions and brands using the problematic word were facing criticism including MasterClass online classes, Masterpiece Theatre, all master’s degrees, and Jedi Masters.

“A Republic, If You Can Keep It”

Randall Smith: If you are looking to get America back on track, consider encouraging and even funding study of the Constitution and our Founding documents.


The legend has it that a crowd had gathered outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia as the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention were concluding in 1787. As Benjamin Franklin exited the Hall, a woman called out, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”  To which Franklin replied:  “A republic, if you can keep it.”

This story was told repeatedly by members of both parties during last year’s impeachment of President Trump.  Obviously, telling the story didn’t resolve the issue one way or the other.

Who cares about the Constitution anymore?  Many Americans still do.  And all Americans should.  Not the Constitution created out of various interpretations of the Bill of Rights, but the Constitution itself and the form of the Constitutional order it was written to create and protect.

Let there be no mistake:  Greater respect for the Constitutional order and a willingness to sacrifice our “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” in its preservation are the only things standing between us and tyranny.  It might be the tyranny of chaos, the tyranny of a political party, or the tyranny of a political ideology, but tyranny is afoot in the land and tyranny there will be, unless we renew our dedication to the republican form of government bequeathed to us.

What I simply cannot understand is why every school, college, and university in the nation is not requiring courses on the Constitution and The Federalist Papers.  How does anyone graduate from high school or college without having a required level of understanding of the text of the Constitution?  I am not talking about some modern understanding of how the Bill of Rights should be applied — we can leave arguments about “incorporation” of rights through the Fourteenth Amendment and all discussions of the “penumbras” and “emanations” to a later date — but a solid, foundational course on the basic structure and form of the Constitution.

Could you build respect for Shakespeare without reading his texts?  So too, who would be so foolish as to imagine that young Americans (and our guest students from other countries) could learn to love and appreciate the Constitution if they have little or no understanding of it?

Comedian Jay Leno used to do a comedy bit on “The Tonight Show” asking young adults questions about some basic facts of American history and government.  How many branches of government?  Who is the Secretary of State?  How many Senators from each state?  Everyone would laugh uproariously as person after person failed to answer even the simplest questions.  This isn’t funny anymore.  It’s tragic.  And the tragedy is playing out across the nation every day.

So if a rich person or foundation wanted to “make a difference” (and they all say they do), might I suggest funding courses on the Constitution and the Founding documents in every high school, college, and university in the country.

Is anyone unclear on why we’re suffering so badly politically during the pandemic?  We’ve trained a lot of specialized technicians who have little or no idea how to evaluate the evidence they get in their specialized discipline in light of information and evidence supplied by the other disciplines.  And very few understand how these various bits of technocratic knowledge can be ordered so as to make prudent political judgments.  Each discipline has its own area, its own specialized methodology, and increasingly, its own reigning ideology.  What they lack is any sense of the common good.

Individually, Americans remain ingenious, creative, and generous, even heroic.  And yet, our political establishment and government institutions are increasingly dysfunctional.  Fewer and fewer people seem content to abide by the Constitutional restrictions on their governmental powers and activities.  They cloak themselves in the Constitution, and then act according to their own whims and will-to-power, suffering under the presumption that if, with a little power and control, I can do this much good (or good “as my group sees it”), then how much more good would I be able to do if I had even more power and control over even more things?

Respect for the particular genius of a republican form of government organized according to the principle of the separation of powers and a system of checks-and-balances is giving way each year to rule by the mob (often mistaken for “democracy”), control by “expert” bureaucratic agencies, or government by judicial fiat rather than legislative compromise.  We increasingly find ourselves subject to those we did not elect, polls we did not participate in, and a social media no one respects except those who have successfully monetized or manipulated it.

Too often foundations support particular political causes rather than supporting the even greater need for a citizenry schooled in the Constitution.  I could not get this appeal published in the usual venues for conservative political thought, so busy are they with back-logged articles on the most recent partisan dust-ups.  An appeal for courses on the Constitution is dull stuff to them.  Positions in political science departments are reserved for ideologues “of the right sort,” and those in “political science” see little or no benefit or prestige to be gained in supporting what they consider to be that “lesser step-child” over in “political theory.”

Would you donate for a STEM program or a course on conservative economics, but not for a program in the U.S. Constitution?  Why not?  Do you think our biggest problems are that we don’t have enough qualified technicians or that we don’t have enough people who understand and respect our Constitutional form of government?  Are you sending your son or daughter to a college or university without a requirement in the Constitution and Founding Documents?  Why?  Is more money more important than political freedom?  Are better technical gadgets more important than “ordered liberty”?

You get what you pay for.  And right now, people are paying large amounts for greater and more expansive forms of tyranny.  Ours is a republic for now, but only if we can keep it.

President of Libertarian Think Tank Supports the Mob

Jerry Taylor, President of the Washington, DC Niskanen Center which is often described as left-libertarian (promoting an “open society”) tweeted in support of the mob in the case of the St. Louis homeowners who protected their home and property earlier this week from an Antifa mob that broke into a gated community headed to the home of St. Louis mayor Lyda Krewson.

First, if you haven’t seen at least a brief minute of the clip that came to Tucker Carlson’s attention last night (Carlson says the couple will be on his show tonight), here it is.

By the way it took a few minutes to find a clip that didn’t have a leftwing moral lesson attached.

What is the Niskanen Center (named after an adviser to Ronald Reagan)?

Well, by a funny coincidence I wrote about it here on Saturday at RRW as they are just one more swamp dwelling think tank, a spin-off of the Cato Institute, that is promoting ever more immigration and increased refugee resettlement, but not from the ‘humanitarian’ side, instead their primary motivation is from the business community’s perspective—give us more cheap labor.  When do we want it? Now!

One of my primary reasons for writing about them was to point out that Washington is filled with groups like this….

So what exactly did Mr. Taylor, who pulls down a quarter of a million dollar salary as President of the non-profit “moderate” Niskanen Center (which touts Republican Linda Chavez as one of its board members), say on Twitter?

The Federalist has a detailed accounting of the whole exchange, here.

An Unexpected Cultural Clue About America Today, from …. Elvis

Elvis Presley’s 1969 hit, “In the Ghetto” provides a prescient glimpse of what would later happen to generations of young black men who lived out their short lives on the mean streets of America’s urban ghettos.

As his first big hit in more than eight years, “In the Ghetto” played a key role in resurrecting his singing career, which floundered in the 1960s when he transitioned away from live performances to pursue an acting career in Hollywood.

Written by singer/songwriter Mac Davis, the song was originally titled “The Vicious Cycle,” an apt description of the endless trail of tragedies that would befall millions of young men fated to be born in the ghettos of America’s biggest cities.  Before reading the lyrics and commentary below, please click here to see Elvis perform one of his most touching songs.

In the Ghetto

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin’
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

And his mama cries
‘Cause if there’s one thing that she don’t need
It’s another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

In attempting to level the playing field for black Americans after nearly two centuries of economic oppression resulting from slavery and segregation, a noble war was launched in 1964: the War on Poverty.  Over the next five decades, trillions of dollars were pumped into America’s largest cities, most of which have been under the continuous control of Democrats ever since.

By nearly every measure, Democrat administration of anti-poverty funding has been catastrophic for urban Americans, with the disintegration of the black family as Exhibit A. The year after the war on poverty was enacted, the out-of-wedlock birthrate among black Americans was 25%.  A half-century later, that rate had skyrocketed to 77%, clear evidence that the war on poverty backfired in an unimaginably tragic way that would leave untold numbers of young black males saddled with functional illiteracy and arrested psychological development.

According to Bob Woodson, a former executive of the National Urban League, 70% of the $22 trillion in anti-poverty funding never reached the desperately poor people it was intended to help. Instead, the lion’s share was siphoned off by Democrat governors, mayors, country managers and school boards to further entrench their political power.  Once in office, they created bloated, wasteful and ever-expanding bureaucracies that devoured massive sums of anti-poverty funding in ways that did virtually nothing to improve the plight of chronically impoverished people in the inner city.

Dating to the time the war on poverty began, urban Americans have lived in squalor, with each election bringing a new round of empty promises from the party of government dependency.  When chronically disadvantaged urban voters grumble, they’re told to be patient, that better days are just around the corner, the same line they’ve been fed for nearly 60 years.

While the black underclass faces a daily struggle just to get by, the Democrats they helped elect live in new homes, drive new cars, dine at fine restaurants and vacation at luxury resorts.  Chicago has not had a Republican mayor since years before the war on poverty was enacted

People, don’t you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he’ll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me
Are we too blind to see?
Do we simply turn our heads, and look the other way?

America did not turn its head and look the other way.  As millions of out-of-wedlock babies were born in ghetto neighborhoods marked by urban blight, rampant crime, sorry schools, generational poverty and chronic despair, America continued stratospheric spending on new and existing social welfare programs, nearly all of which were administered by blue state and blue city Democrats, with disastrous consequences, especially for young black males.

Having been robbed of a realistic chance for a decent education by the inexcusably substandard schools in America’s inner cities, generations of young black men unable to read or write defaulted to a life of crime, with many destined to end up dead or in prison, the fate that often awaits young men of all races who, for whatever reason, fail to get even a minimally acceptable education.  While urban kids who want to learn have no choice but to attend the sorry and unsafe public schools in the inner city, many of America’s most prominent Democrats send their own children to top-performing private academies.

Well, the world turns

And a hungry little boy with a runny nose

Plays in the street as the cold wind blows

In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

And his hunger burns

So he starts to roam the streets at night

And he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight

In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

Then one night in desperation

The young man breaks away

He buys a gun

He steals a car

He tries to run

But he don’t get far

And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers ‘round an angry young man

Face down on the street with a gun in his hand

In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

And as her young man dies

On a cold and gray Chicago mornin’

Another little baby is born

In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

And his mama cries

The majority of homicide victims in Chicago are young black men.  During a recent appearance on The Story with Martha McCallum, former Chicago police chief, Garry McCarthy, said 85 percent of homicide victims in the city are black, and that over Father’s Day weekend, Chicago had 104 shootings and 14 murders, one of which was a 3-year-old African American boy.

For the three-year period 2016-2018, Chicago had 1,893 homicides, followed by 530 more in 2019.  As reported by the Chicago Sun Times, the city has already chalked up 291 murders through the third week of June. That brings the total number of Chicago homicide victims over the last 4.5 years to 2,678, the overwhelming percentage of whom were young black men killed by other young black men.

Every election year, Democrats tell black voters that police killings of unarmed black men have reached epidemic proportions.  Epidemic?  According to the FBI Uniform Crime Report and the Washington Post, in 2019 the U.S. recorded just nine police killings of unarmed black men.  That’s nine fatalities out of a U.S. population of 21 million black males.  Assuming a third of that total are children, there would be roughly 14 million black men in America.  Fourteen million divided by nine equals one fatal shooting by police per every 1.5 million black men in our society, a rate of 0.00006%.

One unarmed black man killed per every1.5 million black men in America is light years away from being anywhere even remotely close to an “epidemic.”  The rare instances of unarmed black men being killed by white police are invariably followed by politically orchestrated outrage spurred on by breathless news coverage.  When one young black man is killed by another, little notice is taken, except by the victim’s crying mama.

America did not turn its head and look away from six decades of carnage in the inner city.  Democrats did.

America Doesn’t Need a New Revolution

Can the country confront its current problems with its traditional can-do spirit? We have barely four months to figure out how.


By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

The Wall Street Journal

Outrage is the natural response to the brutal killing of George Floyd. Yet outrage and clear, critical thinking seldom go hand in hand. An act of police brutality became the catalyst for a revolutionary mood. Protests spilled over into violence and looting. Stores were destroyed; policemen and civilians injured and killed. The truism “black lives matter” was joined by a senseless slogan: “Defund the police.”

Democratic politicians—and some Republicans—hastened to appease the protesters. The mayors of Los Angeles and New York pledged to cut their cities’ police budgets. The Minneapolis City Council said it intended to disband the police department. The speaker of the House and other congressional Democrats donned scarves made of Ghanaian Kente cloth and kneeled in the Capitol. Sen. Mitt Romney joined a march.

Corporate executives scrambled to identify their brands with the protests. By the middle of June, according to polls, American public opinion had been transformed from skepticism about the Black Lives Matter movement to widespread support. Politicians, journalists and other public figures who had denounced protests against the pandemic lockdown suddenly lost their concern about infection. One Johns Hopkins epidemiologist tweeted on June 2: “In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.”

Although I am a black African—an immigrant who came to the U.S. freely—I am keenly aware of the hardships and miseries African-Americans have endured for centuries. Slavery, Reconstruction, segregation: I know the history. I know that there is still racial prejudice in America, and that it manifests itself in the aggressive way some police officers handle African-Americans. I know that by measures of wealth, health, and education, African-Americans remain on average closer to the bottom of society than to the top. I know, too, that African-American communities have been disproportionately hurt by both Covid-19 and the economic disruption of lockdowns.

Yet when I hear it said that the U.S. is defined above all by racism, when I see books such as Robin DiAngelo’s “White Fragility” top the bestseller list, when I read of educators and journalists being fired for daring to question the orthodoxies of Black Lives Matter—then I feel obliged to speak up.

“What the media also do not tell you,” I tweeted on June 9, “is that America is the best place on the planet to be black, female, gay, trans or what have you. We have our problems and we need to address those. But our society and our systems are far from racist.”

America looks different if you grew up, as I did, in Africa and the Middle East. There I had firsthand experience of three things. First, bloody internecine wars between Africans—with all the combatants dark-skinned, and no white people present. Second, the anarchy that comes when there is no police, no law, and order. Third, the severe racism (as well as sexism) of a society such as Saudi Arabia, where de facto slavery still exists.

I came to the U.S. in 2006, having lived in the Netherlands since 1992. Like most immigrants, I came with a confidence that in America I would be judged on my merits rather than on the basis of racial or sexual prejudice.

There’s a reason the U.S. remains, as it has long been, the destination of choice for would-be migrants. We know that there is almost no difference in the unemployment rate for foreign-born and native-born workers—unlike in the European Union.

We immigrants see the downsides of American society: the expensive yet inefficient health-care system, the shambolic public schools in poor communities, the poverty that no welfare program can alleviate. But we also see, as Charles Murray and J.D. Vance have shown, that these problems aren’t unique to black America. White America is also, in Mr. Murray’s phrase, “coming apart” socially. Broken marriages and alienated young men are problems in Appalachia as much as in the inner cities.

If America is a chronically racist society, then why are the “deaths of despair” studied by Anne Case and Angus Deaton so heavily concentrated among middle-aged white Americans? Did the Covid-19 pandemic make us forget the opioid epidemic, which has disproportionately afflicted the white population?

This country is only 244 years old, but it may be showing signs of age. Time was, Americans were renowned for their can-do, problem-solving attitude. Europeans, as Alexis de Tocqueville complained, were inclined to leave problems to central authorities in Paris or Berlin. Americans traditionally solved problems locally, sitting together in town halls and voluntary associations. Some of that spirit still exists, even if we now have to meet on Zoom. But the old question—“How can we figure this out?”—is threatened with replacement by “Why can’t the government figure this out for us?”

The problem is that there are people among us who don’t want to figure it out and who have an interest in avoiding workable solutions. They have an obvious political incentive not to solve social problems, because social problems are the basis of their power. That is why, whenever a scholar like Roland Fryer brings new data to the table—showing it’s simply not true that the police disproportionately shoot black people dead—the response is not to read the paper but to try to discredit its author.

I have no objection to the statement “black lives matter.” But the movement that uses that name has a sinister hostility to serious, fact-driven discussion of the problem it purports to care about. Even more sinister is the haste with which academic, media and business leaders abase themselves before it. There will be no resolution of America’s many social problems if free thought and free speech are no longer upheld in our public sphere. Without them, honest deliberation, mutual learning and the American problem-solving ethic are dead.

America’s elites have blundered into this mess. There were eight years of hedonistic hubris under Bill Clinton. Then came 9/11 and for eight years the U.S. suffered nemesis in Afghanistan, Iraq and in the financial crash. After that we had eight years of a liberal president, and the hubris returned. Sanctimonious politics coincided with deeply unequal economics.

Through all this, many Americans felt completely left out—of the technology boom, of the enterprise of globalization. I never thought I would agree with Michael Moore. But at an October 2016 event, he predicted that Donald Trump would win: “Trump’s election is going to be the biggest [middle finger] ever recorded in human history.” I still think that analysis was right. Mr. Trump wasn’t elected because of his eloquence. He was elected to convey that middle finger to those who had been smugly in charge for decades.

But you can’t give the middle finger to a pandemic, and 2020 has exposed the limitations of Mr. Trump as a president. Yet when you look at the alternative, you have to wonder where it would lead us. Back to the elite hubris of the 1990s and 2010s? I can’t help thinking that another shattering defeat might force sane center-left liberals into saying: That wasn’t a one-off; we’ve got a real problem. They’ll be in the same position as the British Labour Party after four years of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership and two election defeats, when eventually the moderates had to throw the leftists out. One way or another, the Democratic Party has to find a way of throwing out the socialists who are destroying it.

The Republicans, too, have to change their ways. They have to reconnect with young people. They have to address the concerns of Hispanics. And they have to listen to African-Americans, who most certainly do not want to see the police in their neighborhoods replaced by woke community organizers.

We have barely four months to figure this out in the old American way. To figure out how to contain Covid-19, which we haven’t yet done, because—I dare to say it—old lives matter, too, and it is old people as well as minorities whom this disease disproportionately kills. To figure out how to reduce violence, because the police wouldn’t use guns so often if criminals didn’t carry them so often. Perhaps most pressing of all, to figure out how to hold an election in November that isn’t marred by procedural problems, allegations of abuse and postelection tumult.

Who knows? Maybe there’s even time for the candidates to debate the challenges we confront—not with outrage, but with the kind of critical thinking we Americans were once famous for, which takes self-criticism as the first step toward finding solutions.

Gorsuch Does Transgenderism: Notes on the Wreckage

Hadley Arkes: Let’s remember the constitutional role played by the political branches in the past, liberal and conservative, to narrow and counter court decisions.


n my previous column (“The Ebbing of Truth”), I was bracing for the decision that the Supreme Court was about to hand down in a case on transgenderism (Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC and Bostock v. Clayton County).  Some of us were girding our loins for a shock of seismic force because there had been rumors, now proven so regrettably true, that Justice Neil Gorsuch would defect from the conservative side.

The man who was appointed, with high fanfare, to take the place of Justice Scalia would now make the decisive vote, and write the opinion, in a case that promises to disfigure our laws and our lives, much in the way that Roe v. Wade has worked to remake the culture.

If the schools now begin to instruct the young on the even newer, liberated culture set before them, the youngsters may be given now to wonder just how stable are the differences that really distinguish their mothers from their fathers – or themselves, from their brothers and sisters.  As Michael Hanby, David Crawford and Maggie McCarthy argued, this case may well have brought, as C.S. Lewis had it, “the abolition of man” – and woman.

The case involved Anthony Stephens, who had been working at the Harris Funeral Homes in Michigan for several years before he informed his employers that he wished to “live and work fully as a woman.” In his opinion for the Court, Justice Gorsuch referred to Stephens as “Aimee” and used feminine pronouns at every point.

Gorsuch remarked that “Aimee” had “presented as a male” when “she first got the job.”  From the outset, Gorsuch absorbed the predicate of Stephens’ claim: that in his own understanding, he had in fact become a woman.

Michael Hanby and his colleagues correctly noted that the issue was not the freedom of Stephens to present himself as a woman. To confirm Stephens’ argument was to confirm the obligation of all people around him to respect that claim and treat him as though he were indeed a woman.  If they didn’t affirm that lie, they and their employers could be charged with sustaining a “hostile work environment.”

Some of my friends, reading the case closely, insist that Gorsuch never actually affirmed that Stephens had indeed altered his sex, in the strictest understanding of sex, as the objective differences in the ways our bodies are organized for the function of reproduction.

On the surface, that reading of Gorsuch may look and sound plausible.   But I think we can show, with an even closer reading, that this offers, as the saying goes, a “metaphysic without consequence.” That reading will do nothing to dislodge the judgment in this case, and I think it comes apart the closer we look.

Gorsuch remarked that his judgment did not reach the matter of bathrooms and locker rooms, for those situations were not contained in the case at hand. But Justice Alito quickly pointed out that the holding had been, after all, that it was wrong to turn away from anyone – to withhold a job or a benefit – because of an aversion to a person’s sexual choice of changing genders.  That judgment would presumptively apply to all instances of that discrimination, and indeed the first case has already been pressed on the side of a transgendered high-school girl, seeking admission to a boys’ bathroom.

In the meantime, some of the new, young conservative federal judges may be able to use these cases to resist the sweep of this new principle.  They hope then to induce the Supreme Court to take a sober, second look.

Congress could also make it clear again that the Civil Rights Acts do not bar all-female colleges, and it might deal as well then with female teams and locker rooms.  The Trump Administration has already acted in its own sphere – e.g., in denying access of transgendered women to “women’s shelters.”   It’s time to remind ourselves of the constitutional role played by the political branches in the past, liberal and conservative, to narrow and counter decisions of the courts.

Gorsuch did not have to say anything conclusive on that question of whether Stephens had in fact become a woman.   He could simply use his alchemy of “textualism,” working on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and settle on this limited point: that if Stephens came to regard himself as a woman, that is an understanding that the rest of us are obliged to respect when it comes to “discrimination on the basis of sex.”

But that may also be the key to explain why it will mean nothing in the end to note that Gorsuch had not exactly said that Stephens had changed his biological sex.  My friend Gerard Bradley distilled things in this way:  In the biological sciences, “sex is binary, innate, and immutable.”  And it goes beyond anatomical differences to penetrate to the level of cells.

But “gender identity,” as he says, “denotes a fluid belief system based on cultural constructs, emotion, experiences.”

Gorsuch and the Court can preserve their detachment on the question of whether a man can become a woman only if they simply ignore that inescapable, objective truth of what constitutes “sex.”  To admit that truth is to turn the decision into gibberish.  For if the meaning of “sex” was indeed so inescapably true, no one could be obliged to respect Stephens’ claim to be regarded as a woman.

The deeper irony is that this truth, as a truth, no more comes into sight for the conservative critics of this decision than it does for Gorsuch and his colleagues.  It may be the understanding of “sex” contained in the statutes and in accord with the dictionaries of 1964. But that truth would be there even if the statutes and the dictionaries had said something else.

And conservatives have not counted the ignoring of this truth as the deepest wrong in this decision.  For the melancholy fact is that the appeal to anchoring moral truths has long been ruled out of what has been taken, in our own day,  as “conservative jurisprudence.”

FORMER REP. BOB BARR: ‘The Dumbest Generation’ Grows Even Dumber

In 2008, Mark Bauerlein wrote “The Dumbest Generation, How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future.” Judging by events in the intervening dozen years (and especially in recent months), it appears that assessment was premature and perhaps even too kind.

Bauerlein correctly identified overreliance on the internet and social media (then still in its infancy) as the primary culprits for Millennials losing their ability to think, learn and communicate coherently. What his analysis perhaps did not anticipate is the number of adults who have come to encourage, empower and support Millennials in these efforts. It is almost as if adults in government, the news media and academia are competing with Millennials for the title.

Consider, for example, the issue of providing college students with “safe spaces,” where they can shelter from the horrors of people, ideas and principles they consider “offensive.” The students may be the ones pushing for these accommodations, but it is the adult college administrators who cave in and make it happen.

Young protesters in Seattle may “occupy” a sector of that once-respected city; they may scream “police brutality” and call for the police department to be “defunded.” Their  demands, however, would amount to little were it not for the city’s clueless Mayor Jenny Durken, who lauded the young occupiers as “patriots,” and her namby-pamby police chief, Carmen Best, who decided that barricades which had protected one of her department’s precinct headquarters should be removed as a “gesture of trust” to the mob.

While adult elected enablers of today’s young mobs predominate in west coast cities such as Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, counterparts are found across the country. New York’s dynamic duo of Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio repeatedly praise and encourage the demonstrators, even as they offer virtually no support for police who are left to deal with the looting, arson and violence in the streets. Meanwhile, Cuomo’s narcissistic brother, CNN commentator Chris Cuomo, muses on air that protesters need not be either polite or peaceful.

On the ground in Seattle’s mob-occupied zone, a collegiate-type “safe space” was set aside, but only for individuals with “black ancestry” or who “have experienced oppression because [they] are black.” In an interesting role-reversal, news reports noted that this open-air “Black Healing Space” was enforced against non-black interlopers by young whites.

The profound historical and cultural illiteracy of these young mobs repeatedly is confirmed by actions such as their indiscriminate destruction of public statues simply because they are, well, public statues. Reasoning with demonstrators who have shown themselves incapable of distinguishing between statues of musicians like Stevie Ray Vaughan and those memorializing Confederate civil war generals would be an obvious waste of time.

In Lincoln County, Oregon, officials decreed that black Americans do not have to wear medical masks otherwise required for all citizens, because requiring African Americans to do so would in some way perpetuate “racial stereotypes.” Truly, there would be little point in arguing with adults spouting such nonsense; they have thrown in with the children.

The depth to which these “adult Millennials” and their “true Millennial” cohorts have descended in their drive to protect themselves (and our country) from reality, is perhaps most clearly illustrated by the wrath just recently directed against “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling.

Rowling’s “sin” was to publicly explain that only biological women menstruate, not men who had “transgendered” to women. Adult detractors were not only angered by Rowling’s refusal to kowtow to the New Age gender orthodoxy; they reportedly were deeply “devastated” by the horror of her words.

One such person is a teacher at the highly regarded Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Devin Michelle Bunten. Ms. Bunten penned a New York Times op-ed declaring that people, like Rowling and President Trump, who employ terms such as “male” and “female” are “erasing” transgendered individuals and simply perpetuating what she considers our disgraceful social “patriarchy.”

With adult teachers at institutions of higher learning like MIT spouting such nonsense, it is hardly surprising we have now two generations of illiterate snowflakes who cannot distinguish between Stevie Ray Vaughan and Stonewall Jackson.

The Gates to Gehenna

Gehenna: (in both Judaism and Christianity) hell.  Bill Gates openly admits that he is a globalist and eugenicist working toward the New World Order with his plan to mass vaccinate and depopulate the planet by 10% to 15%, which may suggest to the alert-minded that his vaccinations will not improve life, but eliminate life.  Bill Gates’s Quantum Dot Vaccine will have an enzyme called Luciferace.  When injected into the human, it will “mark” the person like cattle, and be trackable.  The patent application filed by Microsoft Technology Licensing, LCC, and registered on 26 March 2020, is WO/2020/060606, known as “666” and titled, “Cryptocurrency system using body activity data.”


There have always been voices whose aim it was to abolish national sovereignty for globalism – a Master Plan for world conquest.  In addition to the discernible despots, there are the self-defined intellectual elites – the enlightened ones – whose world government would guarantee protection for the submissive or unaware in exchange for their freedom and human dignity.

Bill and Melinda Gates, aided and abetted by the Obama administration, leads the way in destroying public education, turning out under educated Marxists with his Common Core curriculum.  It also oversexualizes the children toward transgendering, demeaning the boys for toxic masculinity, their virility and desire to father the next generation with the anticipated result of depopulation, Gates’s ultimate purpose.   His foundation for depopulation, heavily financed by Warren Buffet’s $30 billion donation, contributes to engineering millions, perhaps billions, of human casualties and tragedies.

If the global warming panic and the gender madness failed to subdue us effectively, the coronavirus, COVID-19, fortuitously, if not purposely created to deliver the scare tactics, continues the assault.  Inexperienced epidemiologists were suddenly in authority, spouting severe cautionary statements, only to change them the following week.  This is an American, even a World, First to force-quarantine the healthy, using carefully manipulating behaviors.   All but “necessary” businesses were shut down indefinitely, some open under strict conditions.  The elite in the limelight remained well coiffed and free to conduct their own affairs.

To the false goals of flattening the curve and bogus fatality rates, power seekers added new prohibitions.  Having achieved submission, despotic governors issued additional senseless proclamations, varying in type,  intensity and duration, that turned sheltered care facilities into virus breeding grounds, workforces into depressed unemployed, some homebound into spousal abusers, and the desperate into suicides.  School closings may have caused irreparable damage to the children who, left on their own, would fall further behind the studious and gifted.   Many businesses closed their doors forever, and major industries – travel, real estate, construction, and more – were seriously affected.

Dr. Antony Fauci, “respected” epidemiologist, immunologist, and member of Gates’s Leadership Council, issued many directives based on available data, only to modify them later, with the media adding to the hysteria.  Dr. Stephen M. Smith, a widely respected infectious disease specialist, called hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) a “game changer,” a safe, effective treatment for COVID-19.  The FDA had ruled it safe for the last half-century.   In April, a poll of 62,000 physicians in 30 countries found HCQ to be the best drug available to treat this virus – used in conjunction with azithromycin, zinc and Vitamin D.  But Fauci endorsed remdesivir, which was shown to be a failed antiviral drug that had significantly higher mortality rates (5%), but also a significantly higher profit margin.

Dr. Peter R. Breggin, MD, has now published his findings, “Fauci’s Remdesivir: Inadequate to Treat COVID-19 and Potentially Lethal.”   Adverse reactions may include lung damage – respiratory failure or acute respiratory distress syndrome, with five percent developing a life-threatening decline in condition. Fauci clandestinely ended a double-bind clinical trial “to let the placebo group know so they can have access to remdesivir.” However, since the drug was not saving lives, had serious effects from earlier trials, and its results were disappointing and controversial, “Fauci may have needlessly endangered the lives of the placebo patients by unleashing remdesivir upon them.”  Fauci’s research is considered worthless, “except to raise serious doubts about the drug’s hidden safety profile.”  Lancet reported the drug’s potential increased damage to the lungs.

Through the duration of the trial, Fauci must have realized that his drug was not going to reduce the mortality rate or even lead to complete recovery.  When success criteria were dropped, the primary marker became “time to recovery.”  Fauci then “reinvented the concept of recovery” to include patients who remain hospitalized or at home, requiring oxygen and needing to limit their activities – to get his desired results.  It was also revealed that of Fauci’s 50 committee members who set treatment guidelines, nine had financial ties to Giliad, manufacturer of remdesivir, the vaccination peddled by Fauci.  The less profitable HCQ was removed as an option with no verifiable statistics; remdesivir is being used today.

The corrupt Veterans Administration study claimed to show HCQ useless and dangerous, and President Trump’s treatment of hydroxychloroquine was ridiculed, but frontline physicians around the world contend their studies have shown it to be an “astonishingly effective … miracle drug!”

Some people were made so fearful by inaccurate “statistics,” the lockdowns and job losses to ruin the economy, that it triggered neuroses, obsessive behavior, anger and cruelty.  Face masks are still mandated although Dr. Fauci admitted their purpose was primarily for psychological reassurance.  For some they cause anxiety, PTSD, claustrophobia, and exacerbate asthma, headaches, and respiratory issues.  The masks and media perpetuate the fear, keep the public eager for vaccinations, and prevent specific rallies and in-person voting.  The public is in limbo, their lives on hold, eagerly awaiting a “blessed” vaccination.

The millions of out-of-school students and lockdown-unemployed are free to become Bill Gates’s willing army of contract tracers for an illusion of safety, and to ensure that his vaccinations are implemented according to his plan.  To what end?  To collect data and encourage people to tattle on others, to keep the public vulnerable and acquiescent while demanding his vaccine of choice for the trillion-dollar industry – as well as to destroy our America for the coveted One World.  The globalist crème include Bill and Melinda Gates, the Soros foundations, Hillary Clinton, Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Corp., Ford Foundation, Warren Buffet, and 150 mainstream media outlets.  The International Air Transport Association (IATA), representing 299 airlines, is the prime promoter of a global ID tracking system – contract tracing for an “Immunity Passport” for the right to travel.

Sold as necessary for “the common good,” the passport is already operating in some states by the 13.5 IOS update on the iphone.  Gates’s control reaches wealth, policies, priorities, population, health, narratives, minds, land, industries, the rights to movement and our future.  He is involved with everything, and he is willing to risk other people’s lives.

As reported by noted investigative journalists Corey’s Digs, the WHO, UN and Gates control the media; the healthcare and vaccine industriesclimate change hoax, with 200 billionaires who would also like to rule the world; geoengineering population control; tourism in islands known for drugs and human trafficking; investments in lab-grown meat; labor and sex trafficking in Africa; population control through abortion and transgenderism; eugenics, carrying out experimentation on humans, and population databases; and contact tracing, a multiple-state surveillance program on Americans.  Bill Gates intends to control global population based on their immunity, as verified by the “digital certificate.”  The $3 trillion coronavirus package submitted to Congress includes $75 billion for Nancy Pelosi’s COVID19 testing, tracing and isolation program, which is being marketed to governors across the country and already underway in Massachusetts.

Contact tracing, whose structure already exists for Partners in Health (PIH), with Chelsea Clinton on the board of trustees, has been well funded by Bill Gates.  The program is designed to investigate one’s personal life, includes quarantine camps, mandatory masks in public despite Dr. Fauci’s admission (above), and provides mobile units (contact tracing armies) that will seize and isolate anyone who tests positive.  The supporting programs already exist in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, and North Carolina; are under discussion in California, Minnesota, and Maryland; and planned for the rest of the world.  They judge President Trump a “national security risk” because Trump was going to “unravel vital ties across the Asia-Pacific region,” which I take to mean an impediment to Gates’s vaccination plans.

The contact tracing has begun.  Washington state is forcing restaurants to keep daily logs of their customers – name, address, phone number, time of arrival. Indiana is outsourcing their tracing to Maximus, a 500-people staff at a cost of $43 million a year.  California’s Governor Newsome has mandated masking and building a tracing army, a volunteer corps of 10,000; Michigan’s Governor Whitmer has already recruited 2,000 volunteer tracers.  Tennessee has been housing the homeless during the pandemic, a forced quarantine.  Wisconsin’s Supreme Court struck down the stay-at-home order and seizure of power, which would have had citizens detained and confined without benefit of trial.

Gates hopes to implement digital certificates, to obtain everyone’s virus and vaccination histories.  He wants a “national tracking system,” a human “barcode,” to determine the person’s health, vaccination identity and status.  He assures us that this is merely for safety and convenience – that is, until it’s not, when he may desire the information’s value for other reasons, against our human and civil rights.

Bill Gates extends his unlimited wealth and reach far beyond travel, for credit, purchases, job opportunities, healthcare access.  Lacking credentials, he transformed his self-image from software magnate into a visionary capable of defining the health of billions of people around the globe.  As noted in The Corbett Report, the Gates Foundation has spent tens of millions of dollars per year on media partnerships to boost his new image and his connections with global alliances and big pharmaceutical companies, earning him profits in the billions.  He helped to create Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; control ten tropical diseases; the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents; the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations; the World Health Organization; the National Institute of Health; the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, and more, including their pledge to “fight” coronavirus, with Dr. Gauci as representative.  His “philanthropy” of investing his Microsoft stock into his foundation, during the Decade of Vaccines, doubled to $103.1 billion; philanthropy becomes revenue.

The accolades Gates received for vaccines the world over led to enormous profits for Big Pharma companies, greater control for the Gates Foundation over global health, and greater power for Bill Gates over the planet’s population.  He persuades that we cannot return to normal until there’s a vaccine for all, yet he acknowledges the risks (the paralysis of 40 to 500 children, the paralysis of 490,000+ in India from the oral polio vaccines given between 2000 and 2017) and therefore, wants advance legal immunity for the pharma companies.  He continues to threaten our freedoms with impending doom in order to market his untested, experimental vaccinations to everyone on the planet.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced 20% of human test subjects were severely injured from Gates-Fauci coronavirus vaccines by Moderna.  Fauci was so confident that he waived ferret and primate studies, and 15 human guinea pigs suffered a serious adverse event within 43 days of receiving Moderna’s injections.  A vaccine with those reaction rates could cause grave injuries in 1.5 billion humans if administered to “every person on earth.”  Corey’s Digs assures that money is not the end goal of Gates’s “philanthropic” activities.  It is also not control of only the health industry, but of the human population itself.

The Thin Blue Line

There are good cops and there are bad cops. There are good doctors and there are bad doctors.

The 24/7 fake news media insists that the mob is tearing down statues, smashing windows, looting, and burning down cities because a bad cop killed a man. I don’t think so.

Does the mob burn down hospitals when a bad doctor kills a patient? No, why not? Because there is no advantage to the rulers of the mob in burning hospitals to the ground. The phrase “mob rule” is a misnomer because the mob is not self-ruled, the mob does not rule the mob, the mob has leaders.  ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter (BLM) are racist, supremacist, anti-American domestic terrorist organizations. Their leaders advocate the overthrow of the U.S. government, reverse discrimination, and eliminating police departments.

In a civilized society there are lawful remedies to remove bad cops and bad doctors. It can be legitimately argued that it is difficult to remove bad cops and bad doctors because their unions and licensing boards are self-monitoring and self-governing. Police unions require too many infractions for removal, and medical doctors can simply move to another state and practice elsewhere without any limitation or public disclosure. In a civilized society, the remedy for these difficulties is changing the guidelines for removal, or even the structure of the governing bodies themselves.

So, why the violence and support of anarchy? Because the rulers of the mob are not looking for lawful reform to remove bad cops – the rulers of the mob want to remove the rule of law. There are no laws without law enforcement, only chaos.

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the largest fraternal organization of sworn law enforcement officers in the United States has over 330,000 members organized in 2,200 chapters (lodges) across the country. According to the FOP:

“The five-cornered star tends to remind us of the allegiance we owe to our Flag and is a symbol of the authority with which we are entrusted. It is an honor the people we serve bestow upon us. They place their confidence and trust in us; serve them proudly. Midway between the points and center of the star is a blue field representative of the thin blue line protecting those we serve. Within the half circle over the centerpiece is our motto, ‘Jus, Fidus, Libertatum’ which translated means ‘Law is a Safeguard of Freedom.’”

The thin blue line is what keeps society from descending into violent chaos.

The advantage of tearing down statues, smashing windows, looting, and burning down cities for the rulers of the mob is overwhelming social chaos to make the country ungovernable. Why? Because social chaos is the prerequisite for seismic social change. The mob rulers fully intend to fundamentally transform America and replace our constitutional republic with socialism.

Antifa and BLM are foot soldiers of the revolution. The identifiable mob leaders are contracted by the unobserved globalist elite. It is the globalist bosses who are directing the social chaos by funding and fomenting mob violence, and by neutering the police force with radical leftist stand-down policies.

Voter beware! The goal of the radical leftist Democrat party and their globalist bosses is not regulatory reform. Their ultimate goal is to replace the existing blue police force with their own mercenary stormtroopers. Antifa and BLM will become the brownshirts of the new normal in America. The radical leftist Democrat war on police is the last stage in the globalist war on America.

Social chaos in Minneapolis, Portland, and Seattle are the blueprint for establishing autonomous zones that will fundamentally transform America from freedom to tyranny. Parallel NO-GO zones established by Islamists in European countries have been stunningly successful in eliminating the laws and law enforcement of the host country, and in fundamentally transforming the zones from freedom to tyranny under Islamic sharia law.

Eliminating the police force and dissolving the second amendment are the strategic goals of the globalist initiative that leave Americans totally unprotected and vulnerable to globalist takeover. Without the protection of the thin blue line, the globalist elite bosses can win their war on America. All they have to do is convince Americans that all cops are bad cops. Corporate sponsors of BLM and Antifa support the globalist effort with virtue signaling platitudes.

The globalist mainstream media promotes the globalist effort with demonstrably false accusations of systemic racism that are repeated incessantly. The war on America is a comprehensive attack on American freedom. Law is a safeguard of freedom, and there is no rule of law without law enforcement. Of course the ultimate target of the revolution is the police. The thin blue line is what stands between anarchy and freedom. What the useful idiots protesting in support of Antifa and BLM do not realize, is that after the chaos comes the tyranny of globalist oppression.

There are no individual freedoms in the New World Order of the globalist elite. The unified globalized world is a binary socio-political system with the globalist ruling elite at the the top of the pyramid, and the enslaved population who serve them below. Globalism is the twenty-first century name for feudalism. The New World Order is the very old system of masters and slaves.

VOTER BEWARE! The radical leftist political mob in Washington plans to use your vote to transfer your freedoms, your liberties, and your constitutional rights to the waiting globalist elite. Political Armageddon is scheduled on November 3, 2020.

Trump Defies Liberals By Chugging Entire Bottle Of Aunt Jemima Syrup

TULSA, OK—Liberals are trying to ruin America by destroying all our favorite corporate mascots, logos, and team names. But President Trump says he won’t have it. He defied the woke progressive crowd this week by chugging an entire bottle of Aunt Jemima syrup at his Tulsa rally.

The crowd cheered as Trump put the bottle to his lips and chugged. “Chug! Chug! Chug!” they chanted, screaming with delight as he pounded the whole thing down. Cries of “That’s my president!” and “One more bottle! One more bottle!” erupted from the frenzied audience as stray strands of syrup dripped down the president’s chin.

“Nobody cancels Aunt Jemima on my watch,” he had said before solemnly holding up the bottle of syrup and then guzzling down the entire thing in one gulp. “Ah. That’s good stuff. You know, I always liked Aunt Jemima syrup. Way better than Mrs. Butterworth’s. People say I’m racist, but I’m not — I don’t see color. I just taste how good the syrup is and follow my tastebuds.”

“As long as I have total power here in America, Aunt Jemima will be under my protection.”

Why a Democrat State Senator Was Beaten by the Black Lives Matter Mob He Supported

Why a Democrat State Senator Was Beaten by the Black Lives Matter Mob He Supported


[To get the whole story on the Left’s suicidal political odyssey, read Jamie Glazov’s United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror: CLICK HERE.]

Editors’ note: Democrat State Senator Tim Carpenter is now yet another leftist abused by the totalitarian entity he worships. He was recently beaten up by the protesters he was supporting and filming outside the Wisconsin State Capitol. It was all expected, of course, since, as transpires in all communist revolutions, the Marxist mobs always come for the leftists who dance with them. This is precisely why the Socialist Taliban is now pulling down statues that symbolize progressive politics and also devouring their supporters such as Minneapolis Mayor Jacob FreyEllen Degeneres and Jimmy Kimmel. In light of these latest developments, Frontpage has deemed it vital to run, below, Frontpage Editor Jamie Glazov’s article, How Vittorio Arrigoni Went to Gaza Hoping to Die, from the April 18, 2011 issue of PJ Media, which unveils how and why political pilgrims perpetually shed their own blood in their romance with tyranny and terror. Don’t miss it.

How Vittorio Arrigoni Went to Gaza Hoping to Die.
By Jamie Glazov

“Bit by bit, decorate it, arrange the details, find the ingredients, imagine it, choose it, get advice on it, shape it into a work without spectators, one which exists only for oneself, just for the shortest little moment of life.”
—Michel Foucault, describing the pleasure of preparing oneself for suicide.

The Italian cheerleader for Hamas, Vittorio Arrigoni, has died at the hands of the Islamic terrorism that he venerated throughout his life. The fellow traveler journeyed to the Gaza Strip to prostrate himself before his secular deity, Hamas, and to assist its venture of perpetrating genocide against Israelis. Islamic terrorists, who call themselves “Salafists,” showed their gratitude to Arrigoni by kidnapping, mercilessly beating, and executing him.

This episode was, of course, all part of an expected script: even though the media and our higher literary culture never discuss the reasons, the historical record reveals one undeniable fact: like thousands of political pilgrims before him, Vittorio Arrigoni went to Gaza to die. Indeed, consciously or unconsciously, in their unquenchable quest for sacrificing human life on the altar of their utopian ideals, fellow travelers always lust for death, and if not the death of others, then of their own.

It is no coincidence that a short while before “Salafists” killed Arrigoni, Juliano Mer-Khamis, a cheerleader of terrorism in Israel who, like Arrigoni, dedicated his life to praising the Palestinian death cult and working for the annihilation of Israel, was murdered by Islamic terrorists in Jenin. It is no coincidence that Rachel Corrie, the infamous enabler of the International Solidarity Movement, a group that disrupts anti-terrorism activities of the Israel Defense Forces, committed suicide in protecting Hamas terrorists by throwing herself in front of an Israeli bulldozer. And it is no coincidence that female leftist “peace” activists are routinely raped, brutalized, and enslaved by the Arabs of Judea and Samaria that they come to aid and glorify in their Jew-hating odyssey against Israel. And don’t hold your breath, by the way, waiting for leftist feminists to protest this phenomenon; they are faithfully following in the footsteps of American fellow traveler Anna Louise Strong and the Stalinist German writer Bertolt Brecht, two typical leftist believers who were completely undisturbed by the arrests and deaths of their friends in the Stalinist purges – having never even inquired about them after their disappearance.

Beneath the leftist believer’s veneration of the despotic enemy lies one of his most powerful yearnings: to submit his whole being to a totalist entity. This psychological dynamic involves negative identification, whereby a person who has failed to identify positively with his own environment subjugates his individuality to a powerful, authoritarian entity, through which he vicariously experiences a feeling of power and purpose. The historian David Potter has succinctly crystallized this phenomenon:

… most of us, if not all of us, fulfill ourselves and realize our own identities as persons through our relations with others; we are, in a sense, what our community, or as some sociologists would say, more precisely, what our reference group, recognizes us as being. If it does not recognize us, or if we do not feel that it does, or if we are confused as to what the recognition is, then we become not only lonely, but even lost, and profoundly unsure of our identity. We are driven by this uncertainty into a somewhat obsessive effort to discover our identity and to make certain of it. If this quest proves too long or too difficult, the need for identity becomes psychically very burdensome and the individual may be driven to escape this need by renouncing his own identity and surrendering himself to some seemingly greater cause outside himself.

This surrender to the totality involves the believer’s craving not only to relinquish his individuality to a greater whole but also, ideally, to sacrifice his life for it. Lusting for his own self-extinction, the believer craves martyrdom for the idea. As Eric Hoffer points out in his classic The True Believer, the opportunity to die for the cause gives meaning to the believer’s desire to shed his inner self: “a substitute embraced in moderation cannot supplant and efface the self we want to forget. We cannot be sure that we have something worth living for unless we are ready to die for it.”

Thus, Vittorio Arrigoni, Juliano Mer-Khasin, and Rachel Corrie were simply just faithfully continuing the long suicidal tradition of their political faith. We are well aware, after all, of the dark fate of the believers who journeyed to Russia after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution to build communism; we are well versed of what happened to the leftist Iranians who returned to their country after the 1979 Iranian Revolution to aid Khomeini in building the Islamic paradise. Only those who cannot accept the true motivations of utopian believers can still deny what those political pilgrims were searching for in their odyssey to shed themselves of their own unwanted selves.

Does one need to excessively explain why “progressive” feminist Naomi Klein called out for bringing “Najaf to New York” in her infamous 2004 column in The Nation_,_ in which she reached her hand out in solidarity to Muqtada al-Sadr and his Islamofascist Mahdi Army in the Iraqi Shi’ite stronghold of Najaf? Bringing Najaf to New York would mean that the Iraqi Shi’ite stronghold, where Muqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi Army at one time ran their torture chambers and sowed their terror, would be replicated on America’s shores. What could Naomi Klein possibly see admirable in the vicious nihilistic terror of the Mahdi Army? Would she remain alive for more than sixty seconds upon contact with it?

Is it possible that Klein’s impulses are related to those of Noam Chomsky, a Jew, who has distinguished himself, among other intriguing ways, by traveling to Lebanon to personally embrace the leaders of Hezbollah, whose stated top priority is to rid the world of Jews?

The murder by Iraqi terrorists of American hostage Tom Fox in March 2006 was a perfect example of this pathological phenomenon. Fox was among four members of the leftist group Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) who were kidnapped by Islamic terrorists in Iraq in November 2005. Aside from voicing support for the terrorists, one of the group’s most powerfully articulated themes entailed the longing for death. In the 1984 speech, “God’s People Reconciling,” for example, which gave rise to the formation of the Christian Peacemaker Teams, Mennonite minister Ron Sider urged his listeners: “We must be prepared to die by the thousands.”

It is not unsurprising that when British and American troops rescued the other three CPT hostages and saved their lives, the freed captives refused to thank their liberators — who had risked their own lives participating in the rescue — or to cooperate in a critical debriefing session with intelligence officers. Doug Pritchard, the co-chairman of CPT, went out of his way to tell the world that the kidnapping itself (and by implication Fox’s murder) was _America’s _fault, not the kidnappers’ or the executioners’. “The illegal occupation of Iraq by multinational forces,” he affirmed, was the “root cause” of the kidnappings. In other words, the devil made them do it.

The freed captives resented the fact that they had been liberated by the very forces they despised. And the rescuers had robbed the remaining hostages of the idealized fate suffered by Fox. Jan Benvie, an Edinburgh teacher who was getting ready to go to Iraq with the group in the summer of 2006, learned the lesson well. She announced before her departure: “We make clear that if we are kidnapped we do not want there to be force or any form of violence used to release us.”

To the end of his life, the French philosopher Michel Foucault, who supported and adored Khomeini’s killing fields, adamantly defended “everyone’s right to kill himself.” Suicide, he boastfully wrote in a 1979 essay, was “the simplest of pleasures.” Is it a coincidence that Foucault, who had attempted to kill himself several times out of guilt feelings regarding his homosexuality, passionately supported an Islamic death cult that murdered homosexuals?

Gaza terrorists have a long history of kidnapping and abusing, raping and killing those who come to aid and abet them.

Vittorio Arrigoni knew that very well.

In the end, Arrigoni’s story is the story of the Left – a story best summarized by the dictum of Goethe’s devil, which Marx perpetually invoked, as he did in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon: “All that exists deserves to perish.”

Arrigoni is the contemporary poster boy for the political pilgrims who traveled to despotisms to help build the paradises in which they hoped to shed themselves of their own unwanted selves.  They paid the ultimate price. And no lesser cost must be paid for the momentous transformation of sterilizing the unclean earth. Such disinfection can be made possible only by the purifying power of human blood — blood which, in the utopian enterprise, must, in the final chapter, become one’s own.

How Leftists’ Critical Race Theory Poisons Our Discussion of Racism

I recently revived my Instagram account in an attempt to kill time during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Until three weeks ago, my Instagram feed was filled with cooking photos, quarantine home projects, and the occasional funny meme.

But shortly after George Floyd’s horrifying May 25 killing, my Instagram feed changed course and was filled with commentary on police brutality and race relations.

I’m glad that those I follow on Instagram are speaking out about race relations and abuse at the hands of police officers. But the casual and pervasive use of leftist language to talk about race relations is worrisome.


In these trying times, we must turn to the greatest document in the history of the world to promise freedom and opportunity to its citizens for guidance. Find out more now >>


I decided to respond to one of those posts by a friend and former colleague. She’s a bright, hardworking, and thoughtful woman, and from what I know, relatively apolitical.

When she posted a series of images—what Instagram calls a “story”—that mentioned “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” and a list of required reading that included the writings of Malcolm X, I messaged her directly asking if she was familiar with so-called “critical race theory.”

Critical race theory is a theoretical framework, rooted in Marxism, that posits individuals as oppressed or oppressor based on their skin color.

She replied “yes” and said she had studied it in graduate school. I pushed further to ask about her familiarity with Marxism.

She wrote back that philosophical and policy arguments have no place in this conversation and that her statements were not in any way controversial.

I was relieved to discover that she may not actually believe what she was saying, but was shocked to learn that, from her perspective, this was the only way to have a conversation about race.

I live in a large East Coast city, so it’s no surprise that many of my friends lean left and are social progressives. What was surprising is that my peers, including and especially those who are relatively apolitical, use the leftist paradigms of critical race theory to share their ideas about racism.

They don’t understand the intellectual roots of that language and think that it’s the only way to talk about racism. As such, questioning their ideas amounts to tacit support of racism and makes you a racist.

That notion reflects the true nature of all leftist ideology by being ultimately authoritarian in nature. You either agree with the left’s worldview or you are an enemy of all that is good.

That way of thinking didn’t come out of nowhere.

Beginning in the 1960s, higher education became permeated with critical theory. Critical theory, also rooted in Marxism, says that we must understand our beliefs—including on religion and politics—vis-a-vis the “means of production”; namely, businesses and industries. In this view, it’s in the business owners’ interest to create laws, social norms, and ideas that keep them in power.

Later on, this concept was applied to race, gender, and other identities.  Critical race theorists see these identities as social constructs that support systems of oppression.

Regrettably, these theories have permeated higher education, the mainstream media, and, most recently, the responses to Floyd’s killing in the custody of Minneapolis police officers.

In college humanities classes, critical theory and its grievance studies accoutrements (critical race theory, feminist theory, and postcolonialism, to name a few) are presented as the only and correct way to understand the world.

The Western canon’s lack of gender and race diversity makes it unworthy of study. In other words, one’s gender and/or skin color make their ideas worthy (or not) of discussing.

Critical race theory is presented as the singular lens through which one ought to see the world. Race is a social construct, enforced by those in power (white men), and predetermines someone’s role and ability in society.

Philosophy and literature (and, increasingly, science) exist to dismantle the power structure instead of serving as vehicles through which we understand the most profound questions around human existence.

As a result, anyone who went to college during or after the 1960s may very well have never explored ideas around the truth,  justice, or the origins of our rights.

Simply put, most college graduates with training in the humanities and social sciences lack the vocabulary to talk about racism and prejudice without using the framework of “systemic racism” and “white privilege.”

If you disagree with that philosophical framework, then you are ipso facto against fighting racism or deny that racism even exists. And if you push back on the use of terms such as “power structure” or “systemic racism,” you are likewise accused.

That’s particularly damaging on two levels. First, it precludes any meaningful conversation about racism and race. Second, it creates a chasm between two presumably well-meaning people who most likely agree racism is bad, but disagree on the best way to address it.

A concrete example of that occurred when I questioned a friend’s posting of a “white supremacy iceberg.

I asked her how a so-called “Eurocentric” curriculum teaching Western civilization and supporting legal immigration support white supremacy.  Her non-answer: “Do you deny that racism exists?”

To be clear, racism exists. It’s sad and awful, and damages each of our souls. How sad that an otherwise productive conversation about racism is stopped by accusing me of denying racism’s existence.

Further, the notion posits that “nonbelievers”—those who don’t subscribe to critical race theory—are enemies in the fight to defeat racism.

Surely there are individuals who think that English should be the country’s official language, that securing our borders is necessary to uphold the rule of law, and that the Western canon is an important part of a robust liberal arts education, while also thinking that racism is wrong and wanting to do their part to stop it.

But within the paradigm of critical race theory, that’s not possible. You either #resist the hegemonic white supremacist power structure (which includes Western civilization classes and Columbus Day) or you are a racist.

That’s hardly a way to have productive conversations that lead to ending racism. Regrettably, this divisiveness can be applied to all leftist doctrine, including and especially Marxism, from which critical race theory is derived.

Critical race theory does not seek equality or justice. Instead, it categorizes people. One’s gender, race, or sexual orientation posits you as the oppressed or an oppressor—a status from which you are freed only when all existing societal structures, which are inherently racist, are overthrown.

However, history shows us that authoritarianism, not utopia, follows revolution. We need only look to Cuba, Iran, and Venezuela as examples. Those once-prosperous countries, albeit not without problems, were captivated by the revolutionary narrative of leftism only to find out the hard way that revolution serves only those in power.

Leftism does not seek enduring notions of truth, the good, or justice. It seeks only to subjugate the other as a means of overthrowing an existing structure. Once that structure is overthrown, the leaders of the revolution will find someone new to subjugate.

If we succeed in fighting racism through authoritarian means, then what did we truly gain?

I’m reminded of one of my favorite books, Allan Bloom’s “The Closing of the American Mind.” In it, Bloom famously wrote:

Freedom of the mind requires not only, or not even specially, the absence of legal constraints, but the presence of alternative thoughts.

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity, but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities.

Our fight against prejudice is being done through what is perhaps the worst tyranny of all; namely, the tyranny over the mind.

My friend’s well-intentioned attempts to fight racism, a terrible form of oppression, are being viewed through a lens of authoritarianism that calls upon our darkest demons.

It categorizes people based on race and gender, and assumes that people have (or don’t have) abilities based on those categories. It leaves no room for meaningful discourse.

If we want to fight prejudice, then let’s shape the conversation around our better angels; namely, freedom, the inherent dignity of every single person, truth, and the good.

A Note for our Readers:

This is a critical year in the history of our country. With the country polarized and divided on a number of issues and with roughly half of the country clamoring for increased government control—over health care, socialism, increased regulations, and open borders—we must turn to America’s founding for the answers on how best to proceed into the future.

The Heritage Foundation has compiled input from more than 100 constitutional scholars and legal experts into the country’s most thorough and compelling review of the freedoms promised to us within the United States Constitution into a free digital guide called Heritage’s Guide to the Constitution.

Anarchists and Trump’s Reelection

A longtime white friend phoned me to talk him down from the cliff. He is concerned about how the new racial hatred dominating our country will impact his grand-kids. For the first time, he and his wife believe they should purchase a gun for home protection. This headline confirms my friend’s instinct to arm himself to protect his family. “BEWARE: The Woke Mob is Targeting You Next, Small-Town America.”

My friend also confided that he is feeling racial resentment he has never felt before. I told him racial hatred and division is exactly what leftists hope to achieve with their Black Lives Matter hysteria.

Mary and I are an interracial couple married for over 40 years. A white millennial family member absurdly believes she is showing respect for me by being a strong advocate for BLM. My response is bending over and grabbing your ankles and kneeling in worship to an anti-American racist hate group disturbs me. I love my country. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to pursue their dreams. The BLM movement has nothing, I repeat nothing, to do with empowering blacks. Leftists are exploiting blacks as useful idiots to implement their transformation of America away from the divinely inspired vision of our Founding Fathers.

For decades, public education, Hollywood, Democrats and fake news media have infected youths with a poisonous lie that America is a hellhole of racism and the greatest source of evil on the planet. Our passivity allowed leftists to transform our kids into their social-justice army of anarchists.

What we are experiencing across America is leftists’ frustration over their inability to remove Donald J. Trump from the White House. After a long list of failed schemes to remove him, leftists say, “Screw you America! We’re cutting to the chase. We’re forcibly transforming your country into a Communist nation by using violence, shaming, white-guilt and unconstitutional decrees. And there’s nothing you can do to stop us!”

Boldly, the co-founder of the BLM Global Network vows to make Trump resign before the November election. Lord knows what violence BLM will unleash upon We the People to force Trump out.

Leftist governors and mayors are tripling down on their covid-19 absurd overreaching mandates to depress Americans and stop the remarkable comeback of Trump’s unprecedented booming economy.

Shopping in Virginia, one of Mary’s favorite stores was extremely empty of merchandise. “Are you going out of business?”, she asked a clerk. The clerk said, “No.” He explained that upon reopening, customers purchased everything. The store had not restocked its shelves yet. His explanation was in keeping with the 2.5 million new jobs and amazingly swift comeback of our economy.

Maryland mandates that shoppers wear masks. However, stores and shoppers have begun relaxing the absurd decree. With a 98% recovery rate, more and more Americans realize the covid-19 hysteria was created to shutdown our country to destroy our economy to block Trump’s reelection.

And yet, a middle-aged masked-woman shopper insisted that the store manager order me and other shoppers to wear masks. Probably fearful that the woman would report his business, the manager yelled as I passed him. “Sir, you must wear a mask!” Irrational fear of covid-19 purposely created by fake news media has citizens ratting to “big brother” on those who disobey draconian mandates.

Only 1 in 6 of the BLM protesters are black, 46% are white.

It doesn’t take a political genius to realize that leftists are exploiting the covid-19 seasonal flu and the rare bad behavior of a cop to bludgeon Americans into surrendering our country over to them.

Quite frankly, these spoiled-brat young anarchists are out of their freaking minds if they think vets and baby-boomers will allow them to transform us into a Communist nation. We baby-boomers and our parents sacrificed, suffered and died to gift our kids a wonderful life. They are spitting in our faces, calling us racist and seeking to destroy everything we hold dear.

Far too many modern parents want to be friends with their children rather than parents. Their kids come home from school with their heads filled with leftists’ anti-American and anti-Christian garbage. Instead of opposing the indoctrination, cowardly parents sign-on to it.

I watched a detective movie on Amazon. Unable to stomach it, I fast-forwarded pass the scene of the detective’s disrespectful 13 year old daughter scolding him as if he were her peer. The detective’s daughter represents the young white women in our streets angrily screaming their loyalty to BLM. The disrespectful teen-aged daughter appears to be a standard character in far too many movies. Encouraging kids to disrespect and disobey their parents is included in leftists’ agenda.

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” (Ephesians 6:1-3)

My stomach turns every time I hear conservatives, Republicans and Christians say we must create meaningful dialog with the protesters to discuss their grievances. The problem is their grievances are purposely rooted in the lie that my beloved country is a racist hellhole. I refuse to pander to that concept. Its like saying we are going to discuss how long you have been beating your wife. You reply, “But I don’t beat wife.” They ignore your reply and proceed forward discussing the solution to your bad behavior.

Still, I am confident of two truths. One: God did not allow Trump to survive all of the unprecedented attempts to remove him from office to drop Trump now. Trump will be reelected. However, this does not mean we can sit on our duffs. We must fight like we have never fought before to reelect Trump.

Two: At some point, the American people will no-longer tolerate spoiled-brat anarchists wreaking havoc across our great nation. Anarchists will receive the well-deserved spanking of their pampered snowflake lives.

Yes and they’re using faux racism charges to accomplish this!

This fits right in with many of the 45 Goals of the American Communist Party described in The Naked Communist a 1958 book by the author of The 5000 Year Leap, W. Cleon Skousen which was also read into the 1963 Congressional Record specifically the following:

10. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations. Ongoing all over with white millineal supported riots sponsored by Antifa, BLM and other Soros funded Communist groups (Portland, Seattel, Minneapolis,

22. Discredit American culture by degrading all forms of sculptures (statues). Not just pulling down Confederate War memorials but memorials to Columbus, founding fathers, and even trying to do so with Lincoln Memorial.

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage teaching of (real not revisionist) American history. Our education system has been totally infiltrated by socialism including revisionist, lying history books like those of Howard Zen (5+ M copies)

33. Eliminate all laws and procedures which interfere with Communist aspirations. Fits right in with Democrat calls to ignore existing laws against rioting, arson, looting, even murder for the sake of “protesting” for social justice.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from police to social agencies. Already ongoing in Minneapolis where the City Council vored 12-0 to defund Police & in NYC where DeBlasio is pushing for a 15% de-funding and transfer to social workers.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of American tradition – students and special interest groups (BLM, Antifa, Organizing for American etc.) should rise up and use “united force” to achieve social justice. This is definitely happening and Democrat elected officials are using this as an excuse to condone violence.
