How The Left Could Erase Republicans In The 2020 Election

The Orwellian dystopia found in 1984 is our future if the trendline continues. And a startling pathway to that future is beginning to congeal before us.

George Orwell presciently wrote “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.” This was accomplished in the novel through a device called the Memory Hole.

Protagonist Winston Smith’s job, along with innumerable other workers, was to search the news archives for any stories, phrases or even people who did not line up with the current official worldview and history as dictated by Big Brother. If he found an instance, he dropped it down a literal Memory Hole and it was erased from ever having happened. People’s entire lives disappeared, completely erased as though they never happened. Wars and movements and ideologies never happened and were replaced by a newly re-written history that aligned with Big Brother.

The internal operations of the Memory Hole were never described by Orwell. That was not important, it simply functioned as a metaphor for what Communism was doing around the world in 1948.

But today we are seeing how such a Memory Hole could practically function. No metaphors. Simple reality. And it could happen faster than we think. And like Communism, it comes entirely from the left.

It is the unholy union of the leftwing mainstream media, the leftwing social media giants, leftwing Google and leftwing website and platform hosts. These are virtually all of the avenues for information outside of old-school radio and TV. Talk radio is already dominated by conservatives, but it also does not reach many people in the middle. Ditto for Fox News.

For elections, communicating to voters in the middle, those who swing elections, is critical. Talk radio and Fox News largely do not do that. There is a conservative media such as the Daily Caller, Daily Wire, Newsmax and so on. But they are in the same category of reaching and informing conservatives, who by definition are not swing voters. This dynamic holds for openly progressive media, such as the Huffington Post, Slate, Buzzfeed, Salon, etc.

Let’s walk through how the Memory Hole is beginning to come together. We’ll start with the mainstream media.

The legacy media of newspapers and network television and CNN has long been dominated by leftwing reporters, editors and producers. It has become more obvious over recent decades, increasing sharply in the non-coverage of Obama-era scandals and now being completely unmasked in the age of Trump. So that is in place now.

Google has been outed repeatedly, most recently by Veritas, which interviewed whistleblowers at Google who leaked documents showing that Google is intent on not letting another Trump or Trump-type election ever happen again. They’ve been placing their thumbs on the scales for awhile, but this is a new level and it is now not just fellow travelers at the same company, it is coordinated from the top. That means it will be quite effective.

The result already is that searches for things that were readily available even a year ago, are almost impossible to find now. News stories from “trusted sources” get top play. And of course Google trusts only the mainstream and even outwardly leftists sources. I am reminded of this daily. I googled Tropical Storm Humberto and weather.com just today. Weather.com is a top 300 website. Yet the first two hits were for CNN and then NBC before getting to weather.com — even when I included the specific URL.

In this way, Google employees have become a little army of coding Winston Smiths to develop their part of the Memory Hole.

The social media giants of Facebook, Twitter, Youtube (owned by Google), Instagram, Pinterest and even the giant aggregator Reddit are run and dominated by leftwing executives and operatives. This is a crucial component, because social media was one of the few places where right, left and center could see everything if they wanted to. Everyone could post and link and be as political or nonpolitical as they desired. Since it was a social and familial gathering place, it allowed for the possibilities of seeing a real variety of views, even crazy ones. I described it as the Wild West and considered it a great step forward.

But alas, as the modern left has an instinct for censorship and shutting down discussion, debate and alternative views, so the social media giants are doing all those. From shadow-banning and demonetizing to de-platforming and outright banning, they are all creating what they call “community standards” that is simply leftwing ideology. So by definition, things that are overtly conservative are regularly running into the censor.

It’s not just whackadoodles like Alex Jones. It ranges from conservative comedians like Steven Crowder, who was actually trying to follow all of YouTube’s rules, to the mainstream pro-life outfit Live Action. But when the conservatively doctrinaire PragerU has large numbers of their videos hidden, you know the digital noose is tightening.

And finally, there are the website hosts and platforms such as Godaddy, WordPress, Weebly and so on that are also run by leftists. They have the ability to simply shut down original websites if they deem those have violated their standards. So far, it has only been done with the most egregious sites, such as the white nationalist, Holocaust-denying,  neo-Nazi website Stormfront.

But the line has been crossed.

When you combine the mainstream media, Google, the social media sites, and the website hosts as all leftists, anti-Republican and virulently anti-Trump, they could act in concert — without ever holding a meeting — to scrub the conservative or pro-Trump message from most of the Web — and all the places where swing voters might be exposed.

This includes both organic reach of conservatives and promoted reach. Facebook, YouTube and Twitter can decide that Republican or Pro-Trump ads are violating their community standards and refuse them. This, too, has already happened. This would mean that the GOP would have virtually no pathway for reaching swing voters other than expensive and much less effective direct mail.

Played in unison, these elements substantially become a Memory Hole.

VIDEO: How the Frankfurt School Managed to turn Disagreement with the State into Hate Speech

Posted by Eeyore

Below, is an explanation of this video by the translator, Ava Lon. Thank you very much for this difficult work, and Gates of Vienna for the edit and format.

This is 7 minutes long part of a longer video, from Krzysztof Karo? – the very Polish writer, who informed us about Spinelli and his role in the creation of the European Union. The entire video is about the semantic changes uttered by the -as he calls them- Neo-Marxists, in order to appropriate the language, the debate and finally be able to create the narrative.

They reach this goal by starting by a premise (a false premise) that Truth cannot be known at all, it is only described by our imperfect language which can vary from one person to another, and therefore causes the Truth to be un-knowable or creates many Truths. [if you’re confused already, please keep in mind that 2+2=4, no matter how you say it, in what language, and how poor your grammar might be]

If the Truth depends on language, nothing seems simpler than modify it by modifying the language, on purpose. Who decides how the Truth will be modified, or rather: what will be called the Truth once the necessary changes have been performed?

Jürgen Habermas, belonging to the second generation of Frankfurt School philosophers, after suggesting the nonexistence of objective Truth and the possibility therefore of molding it at will, answers this question by proposing a collective solution in the endeavor of deciding what the Truth is, or rather what it should be.

The process in which the Truth is established is called the Discourse, according to the Communicative Action Theory -known in Poland as the Discourse Theory and this is the name used in the argument of Krzysztof Karo? in this video, ‘discourse’ being the key word- [and Discourse, unlike a normal discussion, doesn’t admit dissent], and the consensus that is reached in that process isn’t reached by presenting better arguments, but rather by pressuring everyone to abandon their views and adhere to the consensus.The difference between this and a compromise is that in a compromise everybody gives up something in order to agree on a common ground. In the Neo-Marxist Consensus Discourse certain positions are entirely given up and the person whole-heartedly takes the Truth established by the discourse and its consensus as HIS OWN [just like in Orwell’s 1984, it wasn’t enough to just ACCEPT the Big Brother, you had to truly LOVE him].

Once everybody agreed what the Truth is (in every particular case), doubting, criticizing, speaking about different possibilities, or even just asking questions about that Neo-Marxist “revealed Truth” is sowing discord, enmity and hate speech.

I thought this was very important in the light of the sentencing of ESW in Austria, where clearly the truth was not a defense, and anyway, the court seems to have had already some sort of consensus about what the truth was.

VIDEO: The Mental Health Box

Declaring people mentally ill was a favorite tactic of communist dictators…the Democrats are trying to do the same thing.

Saudi Oil Field Crisis

The conflict in the Middle East, among Shiites and Sunnis goes back to the time of prophet Muhammad himself.

When prophet Muhammad died, the infighting started in earnest among the various factions. Each demanding Bay’a (pledge of allegiance) with another clan. People jockeyed for power and did their Muslim-best to destroy their competition. Ali, Muhammad’s son-in-law was elbowed out of the way by the more powerful disciples of the prophet and had to wait his turn to head the already fractured and feuding Ummah. Several of the faithful resented the fact that Ali was not allowed to take over the leadership. Some felt victimized by Umar and his powerful conspirators and hated Ali for not standing and fighting like a man. Some real stand-and-fight Muslims decided that Ali should be punished and he was knifed to death on his way to the mosque

The death of Ali was the real stirring of the hornet’s nest, so to speak. All kinds of power struggle, infighting and bloodletting started among the followers of the religion of peace. To cut to the chase, the conflict in the Middle East has been ongoing and has not been settled. Most likely, it will never be settled.

To fully comprehend the scope of this new development in the Middle East and point fingers as to who is responsible for the Saudi oil field attacks, we need to understand their involvement and invasion against the Shiite Houthi insurgency in Yemen. In March 2015 when a Saudi Arabia-led alliance of ten mostly Arab states launched an operation of air strikes against the Houthis, this clash began. Saudi Arabia, considers the Houthis rebels as an Iranian proxy, therefore, they are doing everything within their power to counter the Islamic Republic’s influence.

The Congressional Research Service (CRS), titled, Yemen: Civil War and Regional Intervention has shed some light on a very convoluted issue. This report offers information and data about the continuing dilemma in Yamen.

According to this report:

“Overall, after five years of military operations against the Yemeni government and Saudi-led coalition, it would appear that the Houthis are better equipped with sophisticated weaponry than in previous conflicts against its rivals. According to one observer, “We have witnessed a massive increase in capability on the side of the Houthis in recent years, particularly relating to ballistic missiles and drone technology…. The current capability is far more advanced than anything the Yemeni armed forces had before the civil war.” In July 2019, the Houthis publicly displayed cruise missiles and UAVs in their arsenal and, according to one analysis, the Houthis are “revealing capabilities that Iran has been developing secretly for years.”

In May 2019, the Houthi faction declared they would target both the UAE and Saudi Arabia’s vulnerable facilities. Because the Houthis are supported by the Islamic regime in Iran, all the fingers are pointed at the Iranian regime.

According to Thomas Juneau of International Affairs:

“The Houthis, however, are not Iranian proxies; Tehran’s influence in Yemen is marginal. The civil war in Yemen is driven first and foremost by local and political factors, and is neither an international proxy war nor a sectarian confrontation. It is primarily a domestic conflict, driven by local grievances and local competition for power and resources.”

Conclusion

There is no doubt that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a leading state sponsor of terrorism worldwide. There is no doubt that the Islamic regime supports and finances many proxies in the region. There is also no question that the Iranian people have been experiencing Islamic justice by being arrested, raped, maimed and murdered for the crimes they have never committed. The wanton Islamic Republic of Iran has been at a murder and mayhem path for decades encouraged by an appeasing world.

Just a few reminders: The murderous villains took the life of several thousand Americans during the Iraq conflict without being punished for it. More recently they downed an American drone in the international air space without even getting a slap on their long blood-stained wrist. Then, they started piracy in the Persian Gulf. Nothing happened.

That said, yet, there are some diehard (MEK) Mujahidin Khalgh supporters who are pushing the US to go to war with Iran on behalf of the Saudis. Saudi Arabia started a war in Yemen that they cannot win. The Islamic Republic is facing serious setbacks with sanctions. It is just a matter of time for the regime to fall. The situation inside Iran is dire indeed.

Saudi Arabia is not our friend. In fact, they are America’s greatest nightmare. They are involved in all aspects of American life in the US and “Estimates are that the Saudis fund up to 80% of American mosques.” Let that sink in.

Yes, America Is in the Midst of a Civil War

Writers never know when something they write will strike a nerve—or, in the common phrase of the internet, “go viral.”

Yet my last column, “Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump,” did both. Aside from being reprinted on almost every conservative website, Newsweek published the column, and The New York Times quoted it.

More importantly, many major conservative writers responded to it, mostly in disagreement.

It is interesting that the column elicited so much attention. Maybe, like the man who bit the dog, an articulate case by a mainstream conservative in support of the president is so rare that people felt a need to publish it and respond to it.

Whatever the reason, I feel compelled to respond to some of the disagreements.

Before doing so, I want to note the respectful tone that permeated virtually every one of the disagreeing columns. We have enough cannibals on the left without conservatives eating each other up.

After reading the responses, I feel confident in saying that they confirmed my primary thesis: Anti-Trump conservatives do not believe that Americans are fighting what I call the Second Civil War, while pro-Trump conservatives do.

Indeed, Jonah Goldberg in National Review said as much. He denied that we are in the midst of a civil war on two grounds: One is that it is not violent, and the other is that we are fighting a “culture war,” not a civil war.

Whenever I write about the subject, I almost always note that this Second Civil War is not violent. I never thought that the word “war” must always include violence.

The word is frequently used in nonviolent contexts: the war against cancer, the war between the sexes, the war against tobacco, the Cold War, and myriad other nonviolent wars.

Perhaps Goldberg would respond that he did not write that all wars are violent, only that all civil wars are violent. But if there are nonviolent wars, there can be nonviolent civil wars.

Nevertheless, what most disturbs me is his second argument—articulated in various ways by most of those who disagreed with me—that there is simply no civil war. And many repeated the universal belief among Never-Trumpers that a Hillary Clinton victory would not have been a catastrophe.

My response is that “culture war” is much too tepid a term for what is going on now. Maybe anti-Trump conservatives are fighting a “culture war,” but the left is not.

The left is working to undo the American Revolution. It’s very close to doing so.

Of all people, one would think Goldberg would understand this. He is the author of what I consider to be a modern classic, “Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Change.”

His book leads to one conclusion: We are fighting fascism. How is that not a civil war? When you fight fascism, you are not merely fighting a “culture war.”

So, shouldn’t the primary role of a conservative be to vanquish leftism? To me, that means strongly supporting the Republican president of the United States, who has staffed his Cabinet with conservatives and already won substantial conservative victories.

As I suggested in my previous column, conservatives would have been thrilled if any Republican president had achieved what Trump has at this point in his administration.

“But what about Trump’s character?” nearly all my critics ask. Or, as John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary Magazine, tweeted, “For Dennis Prager, who spent 40 years advocating for a moral frame for American politics, to argue as he argued today is, may I say, ironic.”

John Podhoretz
@jpodhoretz

For Dennis Prager, who spent 40 years advocating for a moral frame for American politics, to argue as he argued today is, may i say, ironic

First, I have indeed dedicated much of my life to advocating for morality—for ethical monotheism as the only way to achieve a moral world; for raising moral children (as opposed to concentrating, for example, on raising “brilliant” children); and for the uniquely great Judeo-Christian moral synthesis developed by the Founding Fathers of America.

But I have never advocated electing moral politicians.

Of course, I prefer people of good character in political office. But 30 years ago, I wrote an essay titled “Adultery and Politicians” in which I argued that what political leaders do is more important than their character.

To cite but one of an endless list of examples, I would prefer an adulterous president (like John F. Kennedy) who supported Israel than a faithful family man (like Jimmy Carter) who was an anti-Zionist.

Second, as a religious Jew, I learned from the Bible that God himself chose morally compromised individuals—like King David, who had a man killed in order to cover up the adultery he committed with the man’s wife, and the prostitute Rahab, who was instrumental in helping the Jews conquer Canaan—to accomplish some greater good.

(And, for the record, I am not suggesting that God chose Donald Trump.)

Third, though I listed his moral defects in column after column during the primaries, I believe that Trump is a better man than his critics maintain. I see no evidence, to cite one example, that he is a misogynist.

His comment about famous and powerful men being able to do what they want with women was

a) said in private—and we are fools if we assess people by their private comments (Harry Truman, a great president, frequently used “kike” in private comments about Jews);

b) not a statement about anything he had actually done;

c) not misogynistic, and

d) often true.

Fourth, even if he were as morally defective as his critics maintain, my response is this: Trump’s character is less morally significant than defeating the left.

If the left wins, America loses. And if America loses, evil will engulf the world.

Trump’s White House Does More for Black Media Members Than Liberal Press Will Ever Tell You

Last week Pastor Mark Burns, a Trump family confidant, and I facilitated a meeting at the White House for members of the executive board of the National Newspaper Publisher Association (NNPA).

NNPA is a trade association of more than 200 black-owned newspapers from across the United States.

The group has been around for more than 75 years.

Today, these 200 black newspapers reach more than 20 million black readers each week. Many of these newspapers have active websites and social media presences as well.

To be sure, certain publishers were skeptical about anything substantive coming out of such a meeting at the White House — yet the skepticism all but disappeared by the end of it.

Now, Pastor Burns — who runs Harvest Praise & Worship Center in South Carolina — and I have been tasked with making sure we follow up on all of the positive action items that flowed from the White House staff with whom we consulted.

When we called the Trump White House to gauge the openness to meeting with these newspaper owners, the answer was an unequivocal “yes.” Staff went on to ask, in fact, how soon we could organize this meeting.

We responded that the publishers were already in town for another conference, so we could facilitate asap. The White House seemed to moved heaven and earth to accommodate our meeting request.

Right about now, you might be asking, “Who in the White House would show this level of interest in meeting these influential newspaper publishers?”

The answer is that Stephanie Grisham, Hogan Gidley, and Darin Miller hosted the meeting with us.

Grisham is the White House press secretary; Gidley is the White House principal deputy press secretary; and Miller is deputy press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence.

This shows the level of seriousness given to this meeting. These three senior aides have the ear of the president and vice president; and we were told that both President Donald Trump and Vice President Pence would be briefed on our meeting and that the three individuals we met with would communicate how pleased they were with the dialogue that took place.

Oh, and did I tell you the White House thought enough of this group that the meeting didn’t just take place in just “any” of the meeting rooms in the White House — it took place in the vice president’s ceremonial office? This office is an ornate, historic room that is typically reserved for special occasions. Based on this, I will let you draw your own conclusions!

Grisham, Gidley, and Miller expressed great appreciation the group had made the time to get-together. The show of humility was very moving.

The aides asked the publishers to speak up about any concerns they might want or need addressed. The biggest concern by far was a lack of access to the White House and various administration officials.

The group was given an ironclad commitment this would no longer be an issue. They vowed to assist the publishers with access to various administration officials they were trying to reach for stories they were in the process of working on and reporting. Their job is to serve all of the American people, they stressed — not merely those who support the administration.

The aides indicated they wanted to have an ongoing dialogue with this group so that they could continue to build better relations with America’s black press.

There are about five follow-up items Pastor Burns and I will be handling; everyone involved thought this was a great first meeting.

The final thing Grisham, Gidley, and Miller said that left a good impression was that they were not necessarily expecting glowing stories about the administration — though they would welcome that. Rather, they felt it critical the administration was given an opportunity to present its side of whatever issue the media might be addressing. That’s all most people can ask.

The Trump administration has a great story to tell relative to the black community. It now has a chance to be heard directly by over 20 million blacks every week.

The Democrats’ biggest fear, it seems, is that the Trump administration will speak directly to the black community in a substantive, meaningful way without political input from the Left.

Yet Pastor Burns and I are committed to working with the Trump White House to share the administration’s message of hope and progress directly with the black community throughout the U.S.

After all, what do we have to lose?

VIDEO: Trump at New Mexico rally, ‘A vote for any Democrat is a vote to destroy the U.S.’

The Democrats have had a very bad year. They are on the wrong side of every issue that the American people care about. Democrats are wrong on immigration, wrong on taxing the working class, wrong on the job killing $15 to $30 minimum wage and wrong on taking away the firearms of law abiding citizens.

Just last week the the Democrats in the U.S. House passed a law to stop drilling for oil in Alaska and off of the coasts of Florida. Then came the attack on the oil fields of Saudi Arabia by the Iranians. Talk about bad timing.

Remember it was the Democrats under Obama who gave us the Iran Nuclear Deal.

So, President Trump is correct when he said, “A vote for any Democrat is a vote to destroy the U.S.”

DISTURBING: Video Of Trudeau Giving Poutine To Laughing Reporter & Saying “The Liberal Party Always Supports The CBC” Has Been Taken Down

Who requested removal, and why?

A deeply disturbing incident has changed the conversation from media bias, to outright election interference by the establishment press.

Earlier, @CanadaBuster shared a video, showing a CBC reporter fawning over attention from Justin Trudeau, accepting poutine fries with a hearty laugh. It was notable because the CBC reporter – David Cochrane – had previously been defending Justin Trudeau’s indefensible avoidance of the reporters questions and scrutiny.

The video spread rapidly, showing in clear picture how fawning much of the media is over Trudeau – a huge contrast to their brutal coverage of the Conservatives.

But then, the Twitter account – which is often anti-Trudeau – where it was spread was the subject of a ‘copyright’ removal. It was seemingly removed everywhere except Global News.

VIDEO: Exposing the mainstreaming and disguising of communism in the USA

Posted by Eeyore

She does quite a good job. The first guy she speaks with is a classic example of the communist hyperbole. He doesn’t say communist or socialist preferring the term, progressive. At this point its worth knowing that a famous communist leader in a speech in the USA that was attended by Bella Dodd, quoted here, said in Philadelphia, PA on November 16, 1953,

I was told by Gil Green, chairman of the party in New York State, that if ever communism came to America it would not come under the Socialist label or the Communist label but it would come under a label palatable to the American people.”

That Communist Party leader Alexander Trachtenberg included terms like “progressive democracy” and “liberalism.”

Beto Going All-In on Confiscation

Democrat Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke continues to struggle to gain any sort of traction for his campaign. With some polls putting him in 10th place, and his average sitting around 7th, some might say that it is desperation time for the candidate who was once a darling with the far left and the legacy media while he was running his losing campaign to unseat U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).

recent tweet from O’Rourke is just one clue that the candidate is, indeed, becoming desperate.

The former U.S. Representative from Texas called on banks and credit card companies to help promote gun control by refusing to do business with companies that produce legal products, and refusing to process legal financial transactions.

As has often been the case with Beto’s campaign, he seems to try to be provocative by rehashing old ideas.

Some banking institutions, with the urging of anti-gun extremists, have already adjusted their practices to accommodate those, like O’Rourke, who stand opposed to the Second Amendment. While this subject has been part of the anti-gun crusade for some time, it has been met with strong opposition, and others have questioned how credit card companies could stop processing certain, specific transactions without actually ceasing doing any business with companies that allow the targeted transactions, as well as others not targeted.

Beto’s most puzzling demand is that banks and credit card companies “(s)top processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks.” As a presidential candidate, and former U.S. Representative, O’Rourke should be aware that ALL firearm transfers through licensed gun dealers—whether they be at a brick-and-mortar store, at a gun show, or over the Internet—are required, by law, to be run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Of course, he knows this, but his tweet is intended to create confusion on the issue, as well as create the impression that he is proposing to address specific problems, even though they simply do not exist.

Rehashing an old anti-gun campaign isn’t his only sign of desperation, though.

On September 12, during the third debate of Democrat Presidential candidates, he tried to be even more provocative.

When asked if he supported confiscation of certain semi-automatic firearms, Beto stated, “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK47….”

And just to prove he was serious, his campaign started selling t-shirts.

Thankfully, he didn’t go so far as one former candidate who also proposed confiscation, but also made what many considered to be a rather ominous threat.

So far, Beto has tried being folksy, posting videos of him at the dentist, getting his hair cut, flipping burgers, and changing a tire. That hasn’t been successful in getting his polling numbers out of the low single digits.

Now he’s selling profanity and trying to prove he’s the most anti-gun candidate in the field in trying to lure support from Democrats in his Quixotic quest to be President. A far cry from when he faced only the Texas electorate, and assured lawful gun owners they could keep their firearms. If these tactics don’t work, which they likely won’t, can we expect O’Rourke to dive even deeper into the anti-gun end of the pool, and start promoting the repeal of the Second Amendment? As we often say, stay tuned!

Last month, veteran Muslim journalist Dalia Al-Aqidi faced Twitter censorship after inviting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to an interview. Both women are refugees and Muslim Americans, which would have made for an eye-to-eye conversation between the leaders. However, Ilhan Omar ignored the requests from another Muslim American woman, which came on the heels of also spurning interview questions from American Muslim human rights leader Ani Zonneveld.

In response, Dalia Al-Aqidi headed to Ilhan Omar’s district in Minneapolis, Minnesota and invited reporters to a sit-down conversation close to the 18th anniversary of September 11th attacks where “somebody did something” (according to Omar).

Low Lying Fruit About To Be Plucked

The hunters have now become the hunted. They are all going down. It’s either us or them. I for one, do not think Trump is in this to lose. You see, we are now at steps six, seven and eight on the scale of discovery and action I wrote about last year. We are at war and we are in fact winning. I am well documented stating this for nearly three years now in my books, articles, media interviews and public speeches. President Trump actually named Page, Strzok, Comey and McCabe in this exchange with the media as individuals guilty of treason. But the swamp runs very deep. This is just the beginning, the low lying fruit.

What to Expect?

They are all going down. Yes, that includes the Clinton’s and the Obama’s in due time. Mark my words. It begins now in 2019 and carries on through Trump’s second term. It will be a cascading avalanche at some point in time. Just like Hillary Clinton stated way back when that if you take me down that she would bring all of Washington DC down with her. Well its seems Mcabe has said the very same thing as reported by Sara Carter on the Laura Ingraham show.

AG Barr and John Durham are working in great detail on multiple investigations. Remember, FISA brings down the house. Then we have Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, and  Rudy Giuliani, all working on different aspects of taking down the deep state. And as President Trump told us at the Orlando rally in 2019, that the state department has most if not all of the 33,000 e-mails that Clinton bleached. Then there are the NSA files, Wikileaks and all that Julian Assange will reveal once extradited to the US and gets his day in court. Then there is the Jeffrey Epstein case. Now I for one have not seen a death certificate, autopsy report, or a funeral for Epstein. Did he kill himself? I was not there, but I would say most definitely not. Was he suicided? Meaning killed by another to look like a suicide? Highly probable. Or, is Epstein being held in a military detention as a controlled high valued asset to extrapolate intel? Time will tell. Dead or alive, much of the intel needed to go after those surrounding the Epstein case is already procured. The list is extensive and it is global.

The deep state scum will eat each other alive throughout this process. They will rat each other out as the cascading avalanche crushes them all. Caution, as time goes by, we will learn about not only treasonous acts and crimes, but horrific acts which include pedophilia and believe it or not acts even far worse than this. For now, I will leave it at that. Oh and don’t be concerned about impeachment or any other subpoenas or attacks against President Trump. They have NOTHING on the President, nothing. There will be no impeachment. If by chance it gets to and then through the house, its’ DOA in the Senate. The deep state  and its fake news media operatives are panicking. They know they are in deep S$%t. Sit back, enjoy the show.

THE STORM IS UPON US

Trump and the Age of Transparency

So you can see the de-class is now underway. The swamp is being drained. Do you think it is by coincidence that headline after headline is coming out with regards to 911? This issue along with Benghazi, fast and furious, JFK, MLK, RFK and scores of other injustices, and crimes against humanity, will dominate the headlines throughout President Trump’s second term. This will include the nationalization of the Federal Reserve and the restoration of sound money restoring power to the people. I cover this weekly, with Economist Dr. Kirk Elliott on the GFR (Global Financial Reset) weekly report here on my YouTube channel.

The world is changing. And so, we are engaged and embarking upon a truly unprecedented time in our history. Buckle down. Stay the course, trust the plan and remember, Freedom…it’s up to U.S.

The Storm Is Upon Us

Is America Next?

Western Europe is at its last breath and they know it. It was collective and deliberate cultural suicide by the EU leaders and there is no going back. Once you are dead, you are dead. Now, the question is how far is America behind Europe in its own demise!

The recent massive migration and redistribution of Muslims into every corner of America and rising numbers due to their high birth rate has become troublesome. In addition, Muslims’ revert to their intolerant behavior that has made many Americans against this small minority. For instance, demanding legal status for Sharia (Islamic laws), the type of draconian laws that for the most part resemble those of man’s barbaric past has made some Americans concerned. But being concerned and doing something about it is millions of miles apart. Many Americans who understand the issue are frustrated and feel helpless.

The idea that Muslims are only a very small minority and it is simply not possible that this small group could destroy America from within, is a myth that the leftist media crafted and forced down the throats of gullible Americans. The American people have been repeatedly lectured by the know it all, elected officials and leftist media, claim that only a very small minority of Muslims are troublemakers who are given the peaceful masses of Muslims a bad name. According to them, those of us who sound the alarm are a bunch of bigots, racists and Islamophobes. Well then, wouldn’t it be more prudent to let the facts settle the matter, rather than blindly accepting either position?

Of course, it would, except for one huge problem. In the face of threats, people tend to go to the mind’s medicine cabinet and take a few denial pills, in the same way they turn to their aspirin bottle when a headache strikes.  Well, just ask any European who fled his country for a safer place like the US if the Islam problem is real and deadly. I have news for you: Neither the pronouncements of officials, nor any tranquilizer can make Islam go away. Islam is here and it shows every sign of imposing itself on us as it has in Europe.

Recall that it took only 19 of these killers to launch the aerial mass murder of 9/11 that killed almost 3,000 people, shattered our open trusting way of life, and cost us trillions of dollars. Unfortunately, we have not learned anything from the 9/11 attacks but instead, act as if we are suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

As time passed, we learned these new Muslim arrivals not only assimilate, but they also use our laws against us in order to advance Islam in America. These newcomers have taken advantage of the provisions of the most benign system known to humanity, democracy, to implode it from within. To Muslims, no other religion is deemed worthy of recognition, much less accommodation. There is not a single church or synagogue or a Buddhist temple in all of Saudi Arabia. They are banned.

Western armchair theorizers and wishful thinkers need to take time and study the Islamic system in order to avoid making empty demands on Muslim leaders that will never be met because they are completely unrealistic and against their religion.

Islam presently has its stranglehold over a billion human beings, posing as an existential threat to all non-Muslims. When this billion and a half adhere to the pathological belief of Islam and use it as their marching orders in life, the rest of humanity ignores this threat at their peril.

OK, let me tell you the truth. The reality portrays a vastly different picture. America is far from a stronghold given its vast wide-open borders. It is a nation of laws where all forms of freedom are enshrined in the Constitution. It is where Americans live by a humane ethos diametrically opposed from those of Islamist savagery. Sadly, these differences confer great advantage to Islamists and place America in imminent danger.

Let me repeat my statement again: the breach of “Fortress America” from the air on 9/11 is only the first installment of much more forthcoming dreadful assaults, unless we abandon our complacency, stop relying on the invincibility of law-enforcement, our phony elected official political talks, fake news media and are willing to make the sacrifice needed to protect our way of life, maybe only then can we survive.

We the People must reevaluate and amend all that has been fed to us for years by crafty politicians and the leftist mainstream media. America is not safe and it is only going to get worse. Islam’s invasion is currently in progress just under your nose via stealth jihad and subversion. The sad part of it is that most Americans don’t even realize it.

‘Humans are Free’ by John Koshkerian

The following was received from a citizen of Canada.

This is the tyrant dictatorship under the regime of the Crime Minister of Canada of which we are presently forced to live under. A man without any fear of reprisals or conscience. A megalomaniac individual who is an uninhibited egotistical puerile individual of whom only cares about himself, his image and his own secret agenda with ulterior motives.

Well done little Caesar well done. I bow down to your supreme knowledge and wisdom and thoughtfulness for all the good you’ve done for us Canadians and all of humanity abroad.

However, Mr. Justin Trudeau in truthful objective retrospect, I must say you are the worst leader our great country has ever had the unfortunate period of being disgraced with. In just 4 short embarrassing years. Your tyrannical dictatorship leadership introduced laws which robbed ALL Canadians from speaking out against you because you manifested out of thin air on our tax dollars the INTERNET WATCH DOG SUB COMMITTEE who quiets truths spoken candidly loud, in particular about YOU. As well not permitting criticisms of a certain so called religion of peace except that YOUR LAW was biased and one fold, a type of double standard and it didn’t protect the rights of other religious faiths and freedoms from being ridiculed under YOUR HATE SPEECH LAW, did it Mr. Trudeau? At the same time while getting your bill passed for YOUR hate speech law in Parliament you Mr. Selfie Sock crazed man of… and for the people put our entire country into irreversible debt, spending like a drunken sailor giving to everywhere and any filthy ludicrous cause, except providing for your own people. In fact, it would be impossible for our great grand children to pay it back and still the while you indulge in entitlement spending on your own personal needs and home repairs of tens of millions of dollars and then fly off on frivolous vacations all over the world to take more vain selfies all on OUR tax dollars for which you were hired to be responsible for.

You never even considered the common Canadian’s needs, the one’s that sleep in the streets on cold winter nights, the one’s who served our country to protect our Charter of Freedoms and rights against ironically speaking people like YOU Mr. Justin Trudeau and yet you bring hoards of immigrants who have had no background checks or you have those background checks destroyed for whatever reason by our so called protective trusting RCMP huh…and then you put them up in hotels or socially assisted housing and give them a MINIMUM of 1 year of social benefits and social assistance possibly a LIFETIME, meanwhile the Canadian who fought for our country is told that new Canadians are number one priority for ALL SERVICES. Boy you’re some kind of savior, aren’t you? A real decent moral caring selfless humanitarian man, right? This is hypocrisy at its zenith and paramount and even the devil can’t deny the undeniable facts of your corruption and treason because the truth flows like fresh water down a river.

Treason is what we hear as Canadians spewing forth out of your forked tongue when you speak Mr. Justin Trudeau. Spineless character is what we recognize and it resonates with lofty truths when you attempt to protect the indigenous rights or when go up to bat for us during world trade talks with world leaders or when you refer to the middle class like you’re a common citizen of Canada, shame on you. All your actions defines your very nature of character of who you really are, an incompetent leader that was never fit to run a country but you were chosen weren’t you? Perhaps, the last election was rigged or fixed in your favor? Who knows? Not I, except for certain, I know I never voted for an individual of your moral turpitude. Fake as you are, it’s evident you have no consideration for the common man or their struggles.

It is unfortunate that Canada believed legalizing marijuana was it’s primary objective than it’s moral and ethical obligations, sadly this is our indoctrinated youth of today. Legalizing Marijuana was more precedent than considering the compromising of our independence and national sovereignty to the UN’s worldwide agenda of the destruction of the traditional family, abortion and global dominance and control. Yes, indeed Crime Minister Trudeau you are the real deal, a real sweet peach of a leader. The real deal breaker who sold Canada out to the world Banksters, the Globalists, the UN the Saudi Oil princes right under our very noses because Canada trusted and believed in you that’s why and you had plans didn’t you? A nefarious agenda to dismantle, fragment and destroy Canada all in one term in office. We have no one to blame but ourselves.

Be gone Justin Trudeau, be gone and disappear like a mist of steam just like a hellish nightmare soon forgotten. May you go down in history as the epitome of Canada’s dark era. A time we as Canadians want to forget. May the history books write the truths about your neglect and thoughtless, careless incompetent behaviour towards your own.

A man’s short-lived legacy of a treasonous tyrant run dictatorship under the guise of a so called humanitarian leader, huh…what a way to go Justin what a way to go. A corrupt leader without morals, scruples not even a shred of dignity can bare your bones or cling to your flesh. A leader who’d sacrifice his own people’s sovereignty, independence and well being for his own demonic selfish political gain only to satisfy the handful of filthy rich families who have created global wars and rule the banking infrastructure of the western world of which who want to see the downfall of what we call Western Civilization, this is their last frontier to conquer and control and you Mr. Justin Trudeau signed the deal with the devil. It confounds my understanding because you have no sorrow or remorse as to how someone as yourself can openly revoke our rights, strip Canadian sovereignty and give it to the UN, increase personal taxes based on false climate truths, increase abortion spending world wide, killing more and more unborn children, protecting terrorists and openly welcoming them here to walk freely amongst our Canadian citizens simultaneously ostracizing Canada from our American partner and brother then bend the truth about known terrorists whilst erasing their criminal records and you have no fear of any reasonable repercussions or fear of your corrupt actions? It baffles any law abiding citizen’s collective thought process. Wow! You are some kind of delusional enigma believing you’re a jewel in the eyes of most, perhaps more than I can fathom to comprehend. You bought and paid off the entire Canadian media to keep silent about the untold factual truths that Canadians not only expect to know but it’s our right and your moral duty as a CIVIL SERVANT to recognize and follow through and be held accountable for the crimes you’ve committed against Canada and it’s people.

I’m sure happy that I’m not in your shoes Mr. Justin Trudeau because what you have done to this great country of ours is definitely a TREASONOUS ACT on many fronts, an ACT OF WAR some might proclaim. If only you’d allow yourself the opportunity to be tried in an open fair criminal court of justice by the citizens of this great nation, then the record would be set straight but we all know that is a pipe dream. Speaking of pipe dreams is another one of your famous ACTS OF TREASON to the Western provinces of Canada and to the rest of Canada. What you have dismantled and corrupted and broken in these 4 short years may never be repairable after your tyrannical reign as little Caesar is long gone but not soon forgotten. Hopefully after this October federal election you’re terminated with the rest of your corrupt caucus then publicly tried by a criminal court of justice but that’s wishful thinking and fantasy. The crux of Canada’s healing begins when you are kicked out and ridiculed where ever you visit long after your tyrannical reign as king because that is still too good for you and if you by hook or by crook some how win another term… well, you will more than likely encourage the separation of Canada. What will you do then? Send out our own military troops and soldiers to battle and fight against our own people and citizens? Against anyone who disagrees with your lack of transparency and unaccountable corruptions? Don’t forget you were quoted saying that you admired China’s dictatorship. Judging by your father the late Pierre Trudeau for his actions by sending out our own soldiers that killed 100 of our own Canadian citizens, then blaming them when Pierre Trudeau himself set up the entire FLQ CRISIS…yeah, another tragic truth the MEDIA didn’t care to share. I have to admit the old adage “THE FRUIT DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM IT’S TREE” because four more years will feel like an eternity of agony under your so-called tyrant leadership.
