Watch the Impeachment shoe of Marie Yovanovitch fall.

Following the failure of the two witnesses on Day One of the Schiff Impeachment Star Chamber to land a blow on the US President, the “star” performer on Day Two promises to be the Obama-appointed US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

Yovanovitch was an enabler of the DNC’s attempts in Kiev to access Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on candidate Trump prior to the 2016 election. They ended up with zero dirt of Trump but moved to target anyone in Trump’s inner campaign circle.

Yovanovitch also protected George Soros’s meddling in the Ukraine via his faux “anti-corruption” NGO, Anti-Corruption Action Center.  A Soros representative told John Solomon that the anti-corruption group was a Trojan Horse in advance of Soros’s intention to invest a billion dollars in the Ukraine.

George Kent, the bow-tied witness on Day One of the Hearing, actually signed a letter to Yuriy Stolyarchuk, the Ukrainian Deputy Prosecutor General, dated April 4, 2016, in which he spoke about the financial assistance for joint US projects with the Prosecutor General’s office more than hinted for them to lay off their investigation into Soros’s NGO.

“The investigation into the actions of the Anti-Corruption Action Center, based on the assistance they have received from us, is similarly misplaced.”  Get the hint?

As John Solomon of The Hill exposed. Yovanovitch gave a speech on March 5, 2019, in which she called for Ukraine’s special anticorruption prosecutor to be removed, and the Ukrainian media went wild that a US official was interfering in their internal affairs. Under Secretary of State, David Hale, got peppered with questions whether her actions and statements violated international code of behavior under the Geneva Convention.

Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, was alerted to Yovanovitch’s anti-Trump statements by a senior Congress member. It was echoed by Republican lawmaker.

In mid-March, 2016, the new Ukraine Chief Prosecutor, Yuri Lutsenko, told John Solomon, that in his first meeting with Ambassador Yovanovitch, she gave him the names of several Ukrainians she did not want investigated and prosecuted!  This was a very strange request for a foreign ambassador to ask of a host country.

John Solomon received confirmation from a Ukrainian official who confirmed that,

“at least some of the names are those that US Embassy Kiev raised with the General Prosecutor because we were concerned about retribution and unfair treatment of Ukrainians viewed as favorable to the United States.”

In other words, the State Department was confirming that its own embassy under Yovanovitch had engaged in pressure on Ukrainian prosecutors to drop certain cases and investigations, as the new prosecutor was admitting.

This ties in with the letter signed by George Kent, the Democrats prime witness, that demanded the Ukrainian prosecutor drop the case against Soros’s NGO.

The bow-tied Kent had also demanded that the Ukrainian prosecutor drop investigations into Sergey Leschenko, a Ukrainian parliamentarian, and Artem Sytnyk, a senior law-enforcement official, who had assisted the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 US elections by divulging information about a former Trump campaign figure, Paul Manafort.

When pressed by the New York Times, Ukrainian prosecutor Lutsenko stood by his statement that Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch did provide him with names of individuals and groups she did not want investigating.

One final point. The writer has been told that Marie Yovanovitch denied a US entry visa to prosecutor Lutsenko to visit with the US Department of Justice to provide them with documents and information on this issue. I am still waiting for verification and confirmation on this point. I hope it will be brought up during her Impeachment cross examination by Republican lawmakers.

TOPIC…The freak show that is being called the impeachment inquiry!!

Is America Moving Toward the ‘Upper House’ of Islam?

Former Muslim and Christian convert, Pastor Shahram Hadian, who was born in Iran and came to the United States as a youngster, regularly tours the country warning about jihad in America. In 2013, he founded his Truth in Love Christian Fellowship near Spokane, Washington, as a “free church,” meaning it rejected a religious tax exemption in order to spread his crucial, political message without restrictions.  That message is that our country has precipitously moved from the Dar al-Harb (lower house of Islam), or “world of war,” and is now dangerously close to the Dar al-Islam (upper house) or “world of submission.” He warns that Americans must preserve our way of life by eschewing political correctness and speaking out about this threat.

The threat arises from the obligation on every Muslim to bring all non-Muslim territory under Islamic rule.  Islamic believers declare war against a non-Muslim region which becomes enemy territory and part of the “lower house” of Islam, called the Dar al-Harb or “world of war.”  During this lower-house period, deception, taqiyya, is freely used. Islamic canonical law, shariah, a totalitarian doctrine with hudud punishments, such as stoning or amputation, is also sanitized or denied.  Muslims living in the region follow its secular laws, even though they ardently believe in the supremacy and eventual victory of shariah over all man-made laws.

Non-Muslims living under Dar al-Harb may be unaware of their plight as devout Muslims pursue their duty to declare jihad on all infidels and secure the entire world for Islam.  In the “lower house” phase, Islam is presented as a peaceful and tolerant faith.  The Koranic verses, suras, from Mohammed’s Meccan period, before he amassed power as a warlord, are emphasized as “true” Islamic beliefs.  The voiding and replacement of these verses by the later Medinan suras of violence and conquest is denied.  For example, an early sura 2:256 states, “there is no compulsion in religion,” but its replacement, sura 9:5, commands Muslims to fight unbelievers until they submit to Islam.

Muslims in the Dar al-Harb typically accentuate their victimization, calling attention to alleged “Islamophobia” and anti-Muslim bias.  Yet, attacks against Muslims are frequently revealed as self-perpetuated.  For example, Ahmed Mohamed, the Clock Boy, became an example of Islamophobia after the then-14-year-old brought to school a beeping device resembling a bomb with a timer and was questioned by police. The incident generated Twitter tweets, death threats against police and school officials, extensive media coverage and a White House visit by the student. Following multiple failed lawsuits against the school, the city and FOX news, the Mohamed family was ordered to pay court costs and subsequently moved to Qatar.

In a region under the “lower house” of Islam, resident Muslims typically declare shariah as unfit for democratic societies and applicable only to Muslim countries or communities.  They may, however, defend shariah used in a strictly Muslim context and cite religious freedom as in a stunning 2018 court verdict. In that instance, a Detroit federal judge dismissed charges against two Michigan doctors accused of genital mutilation of at least nine minor girls.  The doctors’ lawyers argued that laws against genital mutilation violate religious freedom after one doctor maintained she merely performed a religious custom.

Also, during the lower-house period, Muslims begin politically organizing, building a Muslim power base.  In 2014, the executive leadership of eight Muslim Brotherhood organizations announced formation of the United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  The USCMO, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, is the first religion-based political party in U.S. history.  One of the founding members, Nihad Awad, is the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U.S. history, the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial.  His statement at the event was particularly alarming:  “This is the dream of every American Muslim, to unify the approach, agenda and vision of the Muslim community.”

U.S. political parties have never exclusively served one religious group. Yet, the USCMO endeavors to increase political participation of Muslim voters, support Muslim-friendly politicians and encourage more Muslims to run for office at all levels of government.  In 2020, an unprecedented 500 Muslims are expected to run in local, state and federal races.

During Dar al-Harb, Muslims also become involved in other critical sectors of society, including law enforcement, intelligence, national security, education, media and non-Muslim religious communities.  They push to purge counter-terrorism programs, thwarting attempts to apprehend Islamic terrorists.  They demand elimination of negative portrayals of Muslims in popular culture and ask for positive, abridged or even apocryphal versions of Islamic doctrine.  In 2011, the Obama administration expunged training materials deemed offensive by Islamist organizations.  In 2015, Obama instituted the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) program which focused on “right-wing extremists” and white supremacists.

In education, publicly-funded programs and textbooks promoting Islam and denigrating other faiths appear and proliferate as part of curriculums that include Muslim prayers.  Alleged and often fictional Muslim participation in history, scientific discoveries or other fields of study is emphasized to establish a false sense of Muslim supremacy.  Despite the first amendment and its non-establishment clause and the 1969 decision to remove prayer from schools, the Supreme Court recently refused to rule on a public school curriculum that promotes Islam and allows Islamic prayer in school.

During Dar al-Harb, worldwide acts of terrorism are portrayed as “un-Islamic” activities and the perpetrators as those who have “misinterpreted” Islamic doctrine.  Further, jihadist attacks, a key requirement for Muslims, are used as opportunities to advance the “Islamophobia” or “Muslims qua victims” narrative, as in the aftermath of the 2015 San Bernardino attacks.  In that instance, jihadists Tashfeen Malik and Syed Farook murdered 14 people and wounded 21 at a county holiday party.  But Muslim spokesmen expressed concern that the shooting might “embolden Trump supporters” and that Muslims would be punished for actions by bad actors not representative of bona fide Muslims.

During Dar al-Harb, interfaith activities, portrayed as attempts to reach out to other religious communities, are actually all one-way, with accommodations and compromises favoring Muslims. They serve as intelligence-gathering missions. They also seek to develop trust to soften non-Muslims for dawah efforts, the required “welcoming” to Islam, that precedes complete submission required by the “upper house” period.

When Pastor Hadian warns of our descent into the upper house, he is describing the obliteration of our constitutional republic and all the protections and freedoms it guarantees.  He is talking about the near future that will soon see the impact of significant increases in the Islamic population and their efforts to transform America.  Hadian sees the targeting of “right-wing extremists” and white supremacy as attempts to keep Americans in the dark about the Islamist Trojan horse. These tactics are effectively designed to make it more difficult to expose the truth about the Koranic-mandated war to overtake the non-Muslim world.

Indeed, according to Hadian, current practices validate his premise that the U.S. is transitioning to a period of shariah promotion, a definitive characteristic of the “upper house.”  Noteworthy are the shariah patrols with look-alike NYPD vehicles that regulate neighborhood behavior in Brooklyn, as well as an increasing number of spontaneous, New York City street closings for Islamic prayer that inconvenience non-Muslims.  An ear-piercing, five-times-daily call to prayer occurs in Hamtramck, Michigan.  Workplaces have seen increased demands for special accommodations exclusively for Muslims, like prayer breaks and prayer facilities, and halal products in school cafeterias and in the general food supply.  The political elite, especially Democrats, now accept radical anti-Semitic positions from two Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated members of the so-called “Squad” – Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib – and are unwilling to censure them or investigate Omar’s alleged illegal activities.

Tellingly, a recent White House meeting with Vice President Mike Pence on our nation’s “safety and security” included Muslim Brotherhood members, including USCMO head, Ousamma Jammal. Muslim Brotherhood attendees presented Pence with the American Muslim Agenda, citing Muslim contributions to “Making America Great Again” and spoke of their aspirations for a Muslim female president in 2036.

All this points to undeniable progress toward the American Muslim community securing the  “upper house” in the United States and makes Pastor Hadian’s warning even more serious.  Once the Dar al-Islam is firmly in place, it will be too late to wage an effective defense to preserve our way of life.

Mayor Beth Van Duyne: Actions Speak Louder Than Words

As an open seat, following Kenny Marchant’s retirement announcement, the race for Texas’ 24th District is regarded by national pundits as quite competitive. Texas District 24 has traditionally been solid Republican territory, but Democrats are doing their best to turn it blue. Because of multiple Republican retirements, Nancy Pelosi dreams of expanding her House majority in 2020.  She will not be able to fool the residents of Texas District 24. They still remember how, as a popular and effective Mayor, Beth Van Duyne made the City of Irving an economic powerhouse, one of the safest cities and one of the best places to live in America.

Beth Van Duyne, served as Irving’s mayor from 2011-2017 and then in May 2017 she joined the Trump Administration to become the regional administrator for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Southwest regional office in Fort Worth. In August 2019, she decided it was time to serve her district in a different capacity. On her Facebook page, she said:

“My name is Beth Van Duyne and I’m running for Congress because I know the people of the 24th District deserve to have a strong, principled voice in Congress.”

Before Van Duyne can get to the general election, she must beat her Republican Primary challengers on March 3, 2020. Primaries can be just as tough as general elections. But the residents of her district, like in the past, should remain steadfast and stand fully behind Beth Van Duyne, a solid constitutional conservative, and support her through both the primary and general election.

In an interview with Jimmy Atkinson, she explained her role as a Mayor of the City of Irving as well as HUD’s prospect:

“I was on the City Council for six years and then Mayor for six years. I just had a passion. I was a homeowner and a Mom and I just had a passion for working within my city and I saw a need for strong representatives and I threw my hat in the ring. We have a very diverse city, are one of the top hundred largest cities in the country with a population of about 250,000 and are home of six Fortune 500 company headquarters.”

Under Van Duyne’s leadership, Irving blossomed into an economic powerhouse and the City passed a balanced budget, increased property values, and delivered AAA ratings from Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s during one of the weakest economic periods in America’s history.

Van Duyne worked diligently to bring her city back from the days of escalating debt, wasteful spending, and backroom deals. She delivered outstanding growth that brought 10,000 new jobs to Irving, voted against tax rate increases, and led Irving to its highest construction rates in twenty-eight years at that time. This was a success borne of determination to do what is right for the people of Irving and to bring about a more secure future for the city. For her hard work and great vision, she earned the support of the residents and businesses of Irving.

An overview of her perseverance as Mayor of Irving

Throughout her tenure as the Mayor of Irving, Van Duyne fought to build a positive economic environment that provided an opportunity to make the kind of structural changes necessary to usher in decades of future growth. Van Duyne said, “in order to succeed, we must make certain our foundation is solid. Focus on the fundamentals, ensure our citizens are well-served and well-respected, and set the stage for future opportunities – these are the three principles that should guide us through the budget process.”

Focus on the fundamentals

It is no secret that even as the city was growing and empowered with additional revenue, it was also experiencing increased costs and continued to deal with legacy debt from past projects that went awry. Due, in part, to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, more than $700,000 in healthcare costs had been added to the overall budget. Energy and pension costs also increased.

Yet, even with those increased costs, they were in a position to ensure they could prioritize the fundamentals necessary to protect the neighborhoods, improve the infrastructure, and serve the citizens of Irving. To that end, she supported a budget that reflected a commitment to:

  • Public safety by funding police, fire, and code enforcement personnel necessary to protect neighborhoods and keep families safe.
  • Developing new infrastructure by investing in roads, water, sewers, and other basic infrastructure that had not received the needed attention to accommodate Irving’s increasing population;
  • First-class city services by focusing on city personnel who were the front lines to help citizens, small businesses, and tax payers who enable further opportunities for Irving;
  • Responsive governance by ensuring citizens are better informed and can more easily provide feedback, concerns, and guidance to elected officials so officials were accurately and effectively meeting their needs.

Setting the stage for growth and opportunity

At the time, no other state in the nation was experiencing the strength and diversity of growth that Texas has benefited from during the past six years.  While the recession did some damage, Texas led the way in recovering and continued to lead the way in 2014.

Irving was well positioned to make the most of this growth by creating new opportunities for families to move there, businesses to re-locate there, and innovation to take root. Van Duyne was able to prioritize this growth and spur it forward by investing in key areas, including:

  • Single-family homes to bring the next generation of Irving families;
  • A revitalized Heritage District that both recognized the past while embracing new opportunities to entice technology start-up businesses;
  • An enhanced urban center that capitalized on investments the City had already made to attract new residents and create new job opportunities.

Because of her hard work, strong principles and effective leadership, Beth Van Duyne, helped lead her community to become one of the fastest growing, best performing, safest, and best places to live all while having the most diverse zip code in the country.

Now, Beth Van Duyne, a champion of freedom, fights for a spot in the US Congress. It is morally our duty and responsibility to reciprocate and send her to Washington.

A Reader Asks: What Should We be Doing Now? Answer: Re-Elect Donald Trump in 2020!

Please give me specifics, she asked.

I’ve been noticing an increase in the number of readers who want more information on how they can actually fight back against a tide of, for lack of a better description, progressive political activity including election victories by the Open Borders Left intent on changing America by changing the people.

First and foremost remember they have been working away at their progressive agenda for years, for decades!  Community organizing is in their DNA!

They get up every day—day in, day out—planning their transformation of America into what they think will be a socialist/communist nirvana once they get enough people on their side.

Finding those people includes importing them legally or illegally in whatever way they can.

Conversely, you have been getting up every day going to work, spending time with the kids and grand kids, doing your duties and generally enjoying life.

We have a lot of catching up to do!

So here we sit in November 2019 and your most important goal, above all other goals, is to keep Donald J. Trump in the White House for four more years.  

I know, I know, he is an imperfect man, but he is all we have and you have only eleven months remaining to stop America’s slide into socialism!

Why do you think the impeachment hearings are on in the House of Representatives—the Leftists know that the only thing standing between them and their ultimate goal of a socialist country is a President Trump!

Therefore, if you have formed, or are planning to form a local citizens group, or re-energizing a local Tea Party group, anything and everything you can do to support the President is your top priority now.

If he wins in 2020, we get four more years of peace and prosperity, not to mention four more years to put some of our reforms in place (like dumping or reforming the US Refugee Admissions Program!).

If he loses, we are finished and I mean that!

Re-elect Trump!

I’m no expert, but here are some of the things I think you need to be doing in addition to re-electing the President:

Your next priority is to defeat the progressives who are running your local governments.

I know that is a tall order, but I’m telling you, mayors, city councils, state legislators, those are the offices the socialist Democrats are working to control.

You need to find good people to run against them.

Even if you can’t win yet, people who think like you must run in order to get your message out. Your local Leftwing media will be forced to report your ideas if candidates are presenting them.

And, if yours is a contested Congressional District, get involved and work to defeat the Democrat. You can see the damage being done to the country under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi.

Knowledge is power!  So you must have your facts!

Of course you need to know about myriad issues, but it is my view that the most important issue of all time is immigration because once they change the people, there is no going back.

If I were running a local citizens group I would have a couple of people assigned to learning about all of the programs that admit immigrants and refugees to America—the refugee program that I write about all the time, Temporary Protected Status, DACA, the insane Diversity Visa Lottery.

Those experts can then share with your group what they learn which includes investigating those programs in your own state.  Find out who the players are on the Left and in your state government and when the time is right expose them.

As part of investigating, especially as it relates to the refugee program, you must find and infiltrate your local interfaith groups.  They are the primary promoters of the refugee program.

A reader told me that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service’s new CEO was speaking next month to a local Interfaith group and what that says to me is that they are getting ready for a new push into new communities as they anticipate a post-Trump White House.

Frankly, you are going to have to designate someone (with acting skills!) to infiltrate their groups.

All of your research is important to educate your fellow citizens, but will be especially useful in the four more years you will be buying by getting Donald Trump back in the White House.

Bring in speakers!

(LOL! I am not talking about me, I’m not good at it!)

Bite the bullet and find the funds to bring in people knowledgeable about immigration issues, about socialism/communism, about Islamic fundamentalism, and about how to community organize!

Unfortunately the Left is rolling in money and they use it to spread their propaganda. It annoys me that conservatives are often so cheap and don’t spring for national level speakers to educate and energize local grassroots groups.

Send me an e-mail and I will name some national level educators for your group, but be prepared to pay them for their time and for the knowledge they have worked hard to acquire!

But, don’t let this happen:  A knowledgeable speaker comes in, attendees shake their heads about what they are learning, saying to themselves—‘it is awful’—and go away and do nothing!  Provide specific goals for the audience to follow before they leave the room!

There is nothing worse than for a handful of group organizers to hold meetings, do all the work, and everyone else walks away after the meeting and says ‘see you next month.’  (Tick-tock and then there is one less month until the 2020 elections!)

Give out assignments! And, you must meet more than once a month!

Network, network, network!

It is not enough to be simply a news junky who spends your day reading the news on the net (tweeting!) and feeling superior because you know more than your friends.

You absolutely must network with other like-minded groups and individuals in your state even if you have to hold your nose because you don’t like so-and-so who is involved with that group.  Get over it!  The stakes are too high for you to let petty differences hinder your work—the work to get Trump reelected in less than 12 months.

But, that said, I am not a fan of creating one large group.  It is too easy to take down. Create and encourage many small groups. It will confuse the opposition!  By the way, it is one of their tactics.  They don’t have that many activists, they just make it look like they do by spawning ever-more groups.

If you are sitting alone at your computer screen and reading this, find two more people and form a group, give it a name and get to work!

Communicate

You’ve done all that, you’ve gathered your facts, you have people planning to run for local offices, how do you get your message out?

That is a problem as the Left now controls most local newspapers (they have been working at that for more than a decade while you led your life).  If you plan events, demonstrations, conferences, they might publish your news.

And, occasionally they publish letters-to-the-editor, but don’t rely on your local paper to carry your message.

Find social media experts in your group and use any and all forms you can find.

I’m a big fan of setting up a blog or website to spread the message to your members and to gain new members in your community.  However, after my experience of RRW being silenced for a few months, I know it isn’t as easy any longer to set up blogs.

The advantage of a website or blog is that you can archive everything your team of investigators is learning.

I know you might be saying, but then the other side will know about us.  Yes, they will, but the downside of not publicizing your work is that you won’t find more people to join you!

If you are interested, send me an e-mail and I’ll send you the name of a professional who can help you get a site up.  But, again be prepared to spend a little money!

And, even if they might not publish your letters-to-the-editor, assign some people in your group to write them anyway.  If you are responding to the news or another opinion piece they have already published, you might get your letter in print.

This is getting too long, sorry!

Just remember!

Even as we gripe that the President isn’t doing this, or that, or LOL! saying things you wish he wouldn’t, he is all that is standing between us and a new America, filled with new Americans marching down the path toward a socialist/communist future for our once great country—a future that might only be 11 months away!

Everything you need to know about today’s partisan impeachment stunt

Nineteen minutes after Donald J. Trump was sworn in as America’s 45th President, The Washington Post published this headline on its website: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.” For once, anyway, the media was telling it like it is.

Democrats in Congress have been selling their far-left base on impeachment since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential race. After nearly 3 years of coming up empty—including $32 million of taxpayer money spent on the Russia collusion hoax—Democrat leaders knew they needed to do something to appease their party’s left fringe.

That’s why Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment “inquiry” in a hastily organized press conference—before the full House voted, and before any of the relevant evidence could even come to light. This time, Democrats knew they couldn’t risk letting the facts derail their momentum, as had happened with the Mueller Report flop.

Watch: The Swamp wanted a media circus, and they got it!

House Democrats are effectively shutting down Congress—yet again—over their impeachment sham. Nothing substantive can get done while the left remains fixated on undoing the 2016 election. They have repeatedly ignored opportunities to work with President Trump and take action on issues that will help the very people they represent.

The President continues to push forward on trade deals, healthcare, our booming economy, immigration, and other areas where Americans want real solutions. Democrat leaders, unable to control their far-left fringe, can only stage TV hearings. Meanwhile:

  • Speaker Pelosi still refuses to hold a vote on USMCA to replace NAFTA—despite growing pressure from manufacturers, labor unions, farmers, and workers.
  • Democrats have failed to come up with any areas where they’ll work with President Trump to lower medicine prices for our families and seniors.
  • House Democrats have failed to do anything to help rebuild our country’s crumbling infrastructure.
  • They continue to ignore loopholes in our immigration laws that drive the border crisis, fuel human smuggling, and hurt both U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

Americans have every right to be angry. It’s remarkable to think about where our country could be if Democrats in Congress put country before party. Under President Trump, the U.S. economy has hit its lowest unemployment rate in 50 years. Illegal immigration is finally starting to come under control after decades of neglect.

If House Democrats were as committed to helping Americans succeed under President Trump as they are to tearing him down, imagine where we could be now.

Instead, bring in the cameras. The one bright spot from today’s embarrassing spectacle is that American families finally got front-row seats to how Congress wastes its time—and spends millions of their taxpayer dollars—on partisan stunts. No wonder Americans don’t trust Washington. Who can blame them?

Don’t rely on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th-hand accounts. Read the transcript yourself here.

CAIR’s Goal: 30 Islamists into Congress

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR’s executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. 

As the  Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad shares the “formula” he believes will secure Islamists greater political power: 

“A strong CAIR equals a strong community. A strong community will produce a strong and confident and successful Muslim … “So I’m telling you tonight we are going to work in the next years, inshallah (God willing], to elect at least 30 Muslims in the Congress. This number is equivalent to our size and our potential as American Muslims. Including at least two [U.S.] senator Muslims.”

In addition, Awad envisions Muslim judges, including a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, along with an Islamist extension of Hollywood. 

No matter that Awad got his numbers wrong, this has been the Islamist agenda since at least the 2000s, when I heard the same professional targets outlined at national conventions. But as Middle East Forum’s Daniel Pipes wrote in 2003, it goes further.

Pipes documents how, in 1998, CAIR’s Chairman Omar M. Ahmad told a crowd of Muslims in California:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.” 

In 2008, I heard this message echoed at a southern California mosque by Imam Siraj Wahhaj at an event sponsored by the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), where Wahhaj said: 

“There is no America. There is only Islam.” 

None of these views have been clandestine. Over the years the message has been consistent. What has changed is that the Islamist candidates they produce are more vocal about exactly which interests they represent.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s support of the Hamas terror group and the anti-Semitic BDS movement against Israel is the most recent demonstration of that. 

Within this discussion of CAIR’s vision of Muslim in Congress — that is, Islamists in Congress — and those seeking other avenues of political power, it’s important to underscore that not all Muslims are Islamists. Not all Muslims are race and religious supremacists who believe that the politicization of faith is the way to go. Many Muslims stand opposed to the politicization of faith; many stand opposed to Islamists. 

Veteran military serviceman and former California congressional candidate Omar Qudrat is an example of the type of Muslims who deserve to be elected —Muslims who put duty to constitution and country ahead of any religious agendas. 

Dalia Al-Aqidi is another — a veteran Iraqi American journalist poised to challenge Ilhan Omar in Minnesota in the 2020 race for Omar’s congressional seat in district 5. 

Both candidates are steadfast opponents of Islamists, their agenda and ideology. Both are allied with Muslim reformers.

Neither CAIR nor their allies represent the Muslim community. The American Muslim diaspora is so diverse that it would be dishonest to say that any one person or organization represents them. There is no central representation and there shouldn’t be. All our voices deserve to be heard, but what you keep seeing be pushed by mainstream media is this fabricated monolith fantasy of a Muslim — in short, an Islamist.

Nationalism, National-Socialism, and Soviet Fascism

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within… The traitor is the carrier of the plague. You have unbarred the gates of Rome to him.” Cicero


A similar idea was expressed by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln; and human nature has not changed since Cicero. It is true—the traitor is the carrier of the plague…My beloved America the Beautiful is experiencing that exact plague today that was brought to us by Soviet Fascism…

For over thirty years, I have exposed this plague and warned Americans about it constantly by refraining the phrase: “Knowledge of Russia and its Intelligence is a MUST.” The former AG Jeff Sessions was a victim of the plague, because he did not know Russia, its Intelligence apparatus and recused himself from Russia Probe. Now, as a result, we have a political chaos in America every day for three years. Jeff Sessions Has Big Plans For 2020 running for Senate. I will forgive him on the condition that he will start learning the ideology of Soviet fascism today.

Nationalism and National-Socialism

During last three years President Trump has undergone relentless attacks and several incredible accusations: mentally ill, ignorant, incapable of thinking, Stalin, racist-Hitler, and nationalist. All of those has nothing to do with reality, but… he is a Nationalist. And I want to talk about Nationalism, because I am also a Nationalist.

Nationalism, an ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpasses other individual or group interests. Encyclopedia Britannica

I am a nationalist and I know that a family is an initial-origin cell and foundation of any society. Family always seeks peace and tranquility for all its members, a society and nation as a whole have the same desire… Nationalism is a very peaceful, loyal and devoted concept of people who want to have a country with one culture, one language, one nation whose territory has secure borders. Nationalism is an ancient idea in history. Jews have been striving for a nation state since Antiquity, and achieved their goal of establishing the state of Israel only in 1948. Every nation wants to have a national identity, one culture and language on their territory plus strong and secure borders. Nationalism is a very patriotic and peaceful idea, unlike national-socialism, which was born in the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.

For your information national-socialism has an abbreviation—Nazi, Nazism. It has the same definition as Fascism. Europe is well familiar with national-socialism; every country in Europe had its own Quisling and Mosley. Europe has given the world three different types of Fascism: Italian fascism with mild application of force, German fascism with Holocaust, gas-chambers, excessive abuse of power by the Gestapo, and the third one Stalinist Soviet Fascism. All three are known to the world as militant, aggressive, and expansionist political forces with a common agenda–to conquer the world. Do you see the differences between nationalism and national-socialism? Yet, there is more…

The most well-known fascist leaders, Mussolini and Hitler, were proud to publicize their fascist ideology, in their speeches and books. You can read Hitler’s “Mein Kam” today. Japan joined Italy and Germany by 1940 and the three had established the “Axis.” Very soon their real agenda to fight Western civilization was revealed. Germany attacked Poland September 1, 1939 and WW II began. Japan attacked Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941. The entire world was involved in killing, destroying, harming, sabotaging and terminating instead of creating, building, generating and producing. I saw all of that in Russia, Ukraine, and Europe…

The tragedy of the WW II is staggering: Deaths directly caused by the war (including military and civilians killed) are estimated at 50–56 million people, while there were an additional estimated 19 to 28 million deaths from war-related disease and famine. Total price to defeat the fascist “Axis” cost the world population 70-80 million. The Marshall Plan cost about $13.3 billion at the time, but dollars during the 1950s could purchase much more than today’s dollars. Adjusting for inflation and stated in today’s dollars, the Marshall Plan investment would be equal to $103.4 billion, invested by the United States of America. But … Fascism is alive and well…

Fascism Never Sleeps: Soviet Fascism

As a matter of fact, the Soviet fascism developed under the Iron Curtain is unknown to the world. That is the reason I have been writing about the ideology of Stalinism for the last thirty years. Unlike Hitler and Mussolini, being proud of their ideology, Stalin had masked and covered up the real identity of the Soviet regime—Soviet Fascism. He created a system of Political Correctness to deceive the opposition and the world. Under the term Socialism, Soviet fascism had been disseminated across the world with the application of Political Correctness deceiving and defrauding the people. Do you see now the main difference between Nationalism and national-socialism? We must pay attention to the ideology of Socialism, as an integral part of Fascism!!! Read here Political Correctness and the Socialist Revolution in America, October 31, 2019

There is only one Socialist system in the world practiced in real life—Stalin’s Soviet Socialism. It was an inextricably, intertwined blend of Socialist ideology with the force of punitive agencies—I use the term KGB talking about them. That force, coordinated by the KGB, helped HIS Socialist system to survive for many years, yet Socialism ended in the country where it was born. The collapse of the USSR in 1991 meant the collapse of the Socialist economy, which wasn’t able to produce, but the Police State under the KGB has re-emerged, bringing the KGB operative Vladimir Putin to the presidency of the Russian Federation. Nothing substantial has changed and under Putin’s leadership, the current crop of apparatchiks are flourishing in Russia today. The KGB is still running the country with a crony capitalism instead of failed socialism. Yet, the absence of Socialism opens the door to the Truth—the real name of the ideology is Soviet Fascism…

From the first day of Obama’s presidency the war against the American Republic began to transform our country to a Socialist Administrative State. Obama, the socialist, did not hide his real agenda, openly calling for the transformation, and began fighting the unique political system left to us by our Founding Father. Following Stalin’s model of weaponizing the Intel, Obama appointed as CIA Director a man who voted in the previous election for a Communist candidate—John Brennon. Socialist/Communist’s brain-washing war on America’s mind and soul had started by Socialist-Obama, lying constantly, using Stalinist Political Correctness and his holdovers. The train-engine of the coup against Trump has been moving ahead, combating Western civilization and you, the American people.

I have writing about the Dems’ American Socialist mafia, the carrier of the plague that has come from the KGB. I found plenty of Socialist methods and tricks being implemented in America, especially by America’s Socialist mafia. Schiff’s fabrication is reminiscent of the former head of the KGB in the Soviet Union, Lavrenty Beria’s, famous boast, “You bring me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” You see it in America today. Knowing well the Soviet abusive power of the KGB, I was stunned seeing the same here being exercised by the current Anti-Trump cabal, America’s Socialist mafia. I am using a term KGB meaning the entirety of Russian Intelligence Services.

The Dems were committing crimes and putting the finger of blame on the opposition for the last 3-4 decades. Nothing is left of Truman’s Party, only the title—the Democrat Party, an old shell, used by the America’s Socialist mafia to cover up its actual adherence to the ideology of Soviet fascism a plague brought by the KGB to our land. I have support from a professor of Law. LISTEN: Liberal Democrat Dershowitz Compares Democrats To Russian Secret Police Under Stalin, Blisters CNN, by Hank Berrien, November 11, 2019, DailyWire.com Dershowiz also ripped Democrats, comparing them to the Russian secret police under the murderous Russian dictator Josef Stalin, asserting, “The Democrats are now making up crimes.” He is right, I know Stalinism. Alas, it is here.

What does Rep. Sean Maloney and other Dems members of the Impeachment procedure know about Stalinism and Soviet fascism? They have been deceived and mislead by DNC for decades and now they are led by a Communist, Tom Perez, the Deep State, and “the Squad” –the plague Cicero was talking about…There are some decent Dems, but they are deceived and tricked—they don’t know Russia and its Intelligence apparatus and don’t understand how it is operating here, just like Jeff Sessions did not. Moreover, they don’t know Ukraine and the unthinkable corruption there—Soviet scale corruption…

They had no idea of how wide Stalinism and Soviet Fascism are spread across the globe. If you know Soviet fascism, you know what is going on in Hong Kong. It took Stalin two decades to build a Chinese Communist State with all the attributes of Soviet fascism, schooled by the Russian KGB. Things going on in Stalinist Russia years ago, is being repeated in all countries of “the Axis of Evil” under the Russian umbrella. Listen to this story:

A Christian house church leader told Bitter Winter the Communist Party is “replacing the words of God with human moral standards, secretly distorting the doctrine and eroding the foundations of the Christian faith.”

“This is a truly sinister approach. Only the devil would do such a thing,” the leader said. In China, the government controls churches by requiring them to belong to its Three-Self Patriotic Movement. ‘Truly sinister’: Jesus’ words twisted to promote communism.” ‘Only the devil would do such a thing’ By WND Staff Published November 10, 2019.

I have bad news for Robert Levinson’s family. Iran is a member country of “the Axis of Evil”. I am afraid that it was Russia who dealt with Robert Levinson. That means that experiment with Otto Warmbier in North Korea can be repeated in Levinson’s case, the way it initially was performed on Raoul Wallenberg in Russia. Read my book What is Happening to America? Xlibris, 2012. Soviet fascism is alive and well and never sleeps…

My fellow Americans!

President Donald J Trump presents an existential threat to Soviet Fascism.

Do you realize now what the radical Left armed with the ideology of Soviet Fascism means?

It was the ultimate goal and agenda of Stalin, Andropov and Putin to destroy America from within…

And the Democrat Party of the 21st century is doing just that before the eyes of the world…

Our Founding Fathers are rolling over their graves…

The human nature definitely has not changed since Cicero!

Why Trump is Black Voters’ Clear Choice in 2020

I am a black Christian, conservative and Republican, renowned as “The Unhyphenated American.”

A rabbi on TV said one of the reasons why Jews have prospered despite being the most persecuted people on the planet is ancient Jewish wisdom says to never view oneself as a victim. This powerful truth hit me like a ton of bricks. From as far back as I can remember, Democrats have deceived blacks by drilling the lie into their heads that they are victims of eternally racist America.

Insidiously, Democrats continue to sell blacks the lie that America is a hellhole of racism in which Republicans and Conservatives are obsessed with conceiving ways to keep blacks down. Consequently, far too many blacks absurdly believe a majority of Americans (Trump voters) are white supremacists and their only hope of keeping them at bay is to continue voting for Democrats.

As a child, I instinctively knew Democrats were scamming blacks. When I was around 9 years old, my parents and 3 younger siblings moved from a leaky roof ghetto to a new 11 story government project in Baltimore. Everything was brand new, kitchen appliances and so on. Extremely excited, we were among the first families in the building of all black residents. Within a short amount of time, that building became a huge ghetto. The elevators were routinely out-of-service due to vandalism. Our apartment was on the 6th floor. Entering the pitch black stairwell to walk up to our apartment was like walking into the shadow of death, as the sound of stepping on broken wine bottles echoed off the concrete walls. I suspect my fellow residents were Democrats. They believed every problem was always the fault of white racism.

At 9 years old, I sarcastically said, “How can we stop mean white people from sneaking into our building at night, breaking light bulbs in the stairwells, peeing, breaking the elevators and smashing wine bottles? Even at that young age, commonsense told me whitey was not responsible for problems we could fix ourselves.

In my mid twenties, I again noticed the devastating negative consequences of Democrats infecting blacks with victim mindsets. I became a born-again Christian. Excited about my new life in Jesus, I began visiting reform schools and prisons sharing how Jesus changed my life. Shockingly, a majority of the inmates were young black men. Many were gifted and talented. Their glaring problem was not white racism, but hopeless victim mindsets instilled into them by Democrats. I repeatedly heard, “Why even try when whitey has systemically stacked the deck against you?”

Blacks today do not know the Democratic party has become the home of socialists, communists, progressives and anti-Americanism. All Democrats care about is furthering their anti-God agenda. The folks they claim to advocate (minorities, women and LGBTQ) are nothing more that useful idiots. Democrats want blacks hating their country. This is why Democrats say all black success is in spite of America’s rabid racism.

Americans are good fair-minded people. This is why white America elected Obama, the first black president, exempting him from the normal vetting process. It is unarguable that white America elected Obama because blacks are only 12% of the population. Hidden by his black skin exterior, Obama was socialists/progressives’ perfect Trojan Horse to further their godless and anti-American agenda. White Americans naively assumed electing a black president would finally end being branded racist. They had no idea that Democrats would exploit Obama’s skin color, using it as a bludgeon to force their agenda down the throats of Americans.

Anyone who dared to speak out against any of Obama’s numerous unconstitutional executive orders was immediately attacked, high-tech beaten and lynched in the public square, an “r” branded on their forehead for being a racist.

My conservative self-reliant, the-world-does-not-owe-me-anything mindset came from my parents. Particularly, my dad, the late Dr Rev Lloyd E Marcus. In 1952, the ban was lifted allowing blacks to take the civil service test. Dad passed the test and became a Baltimore City firefighter. White firefighters at Engine 6 resented Dad and treated him like scum. Dad was assigned separate eating utensils, restroom and sleeping area. He could not even pour himself a cup of coffee from the same coffeepot as the whites. Dad was the young assistant pastor of a Baltimore storefront church.

Whenever the humiliation become too overwhelming, Dad retreated to the storage room to pray and read his Bible. Mean-spirited firefighters named the storage room, “Marcus’ Chapel.” Dad courageously endured because he had a wife and four kids to feed and knew he was a trailblazer.

Rather than wallowing in a victim mindset, Dad chose to represent Jesus by striving to be excellent. Dad won Firefighter of the Year two times, also winning respect and lifelong friendships with white firefighters. He went on to became Baltimore’s first black paramedic and fire department chaplain. Dad competed with whites for Firefighter of the Year without Democrats’ insulting demands that standards be lowered to compensate for his skin color.

I hate that Democrats always send blacks the message that they are victims and inferior to whites, repeatedly demanding lowered standards and special concessions. For example: Democrats say requiring blacks to present a photo ID to vote disenfranchises blacks. This is extremely insulting. In essence, Democrats are saying unlike other Americans, blacks are too stupid to acquire a photo ID which is absurd. You need a photo ID to cash a check, board an airplane and countless other transactions. And yet, far too many blacks view this attack on their intelligence as Democrats advocating for them.

The true evil goal of Democrats is not to empower blacks. They seek to addict blacks to government dependency. Why? Because if the government is paying your bills, government can totally control your life, dictating your behavior. This is why Democrats despise self-reliant extraordinarily successful blacks like Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, retired renowned neurosurgeon Dr Ben Carson, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and businessman extraordinaire Herman Cain. The success of these blacks pokes a huge hole in Democrats’ lie that blacks can only succeed in racist America via Democrats’ intervention and lowered standards.

Tragically, blacks have voted monolithic for Democrats for 50 years with nothing to show for it. Baltimore, Washington DC, Chicago and every other city controlled by Democrats are hellholes of black misery; black on black homicides, out-of-wedlock births (fatherless households), high incarcerations, genocidal numbers of abortions and school dropouts. And yet, Democrats are still deceiving blacks with their tired old lie that every issue plaguing black Americans is the result of white racism.

My stomach turned upon hearing Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren promising that she will end environmental racism. I thought, “Here we go again with another Democrat attempting to fill blacks with more victim nonsense while trashing America, claiming that even the weather in the U.S. victimizes blacks.”

As the rabbi stated, viewing oneself as a victim is not empowering. It weakens you.

President Trump is the best thing for blacks since sliced bread. Under Trump, black unemployment is at an historic low. The record of Trump’s extraordinary business career is filled with examples of advocating and hiring blacks.

For decades, I pleaded with the GOP to make a strong effort to reach out to black voters. The cynical response was, “Why bother? African Americans will always vote for Democrats no matter what we do.” My retort was, “Republicans have a moral duty to counter Democrats’ destructive lies by taking the truth about America’s greatness to black communities.” Trump is the first Republican president in my lifetime to seriously and sincerely court black voters.

Branding Trump a racist is yet another evil Democrat lie to steer blacks away from a Republican who has their best interest at heart, implementing policies beneficial to them.

Unlike the Democratic party, the Republican party does not treat me like a poor inferior child in need of constant government intervention.

Folks, the bottom line is America is the greatest land of opportunity on the plant for all who choose to go for their dreams! This inspiring truth is as repulsive to Democrats as showing Dracula the cross.

Ilhan Omar and ‘Western Imperialism’ by Hugh Fitzgerald

On November 3, at a political rally with Bernie Sanders in Minneapolis, Ilhan Omar exclaimed that she was happy to have endorsed, and to campaign for, a candidate who “will fight against Western imperialism and fight for a just world.”

One would like to know what Omar meant by “Western imperialism.” The Americans never had an imperial empire; they never turned the Philippines and Cuba, that they had won in the Spanish-American War, in 1898, into colonies; there was no large-scale settlement of Americans in either place. There never has been an American colony in Africa; Liberia was not an American colony, but rather was intended to be an independent state populated by former slaves. The only place in the Americas where the United States has not a colony but a “territory” is Puerto Rico. Far from being exploited by American imperialists, Puerto Rico receives $21 billion a year from the American government. The Puerto Ricans apparently do not feel they are victims of American “imperialism” who demand independence – in 2018, 500,000 of them voted for statehood, while only 7,000 wanted independence.

Perhaps Ilhan Omar was thinking of the British as the quintessential “Western imperialists.” But the British Empire is long gone. The British pulled completely out of what is present-day India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh in 1947. They are nowhere else, as an imperial power, in Asia, including Hong Kong, which they turned over to Chinese sovereignty in 1997. In the Middle East, the British were in Iraq only as holders of the Mandate, tasked with guiding that country to full independence, as was achieved in 1932. The British also helped create the Emirate of Transjordan, which was never a British colony. There was a small British garrison in what was called the Crown Colony of Aden, but there were no “British colonists” in evidence; Aden was merely an entrepot to resupply ships going to and from India. In South America, the colony of British Guiana became independent in 1966. British Honduras, another colony, became independent, as the country of Belize, in 1981. In Africa, all of Britain’s former colonies, with one exception, had received their independence by 1968. That one exception was Southern Rhodesia, which received its independence, and a new name – Zimbabwe – in 1980. What examples of British imperialism does Ilhan Omar have in mind? Bermuda? Anguilla?  Two tiny vacation spots that are not exploited by British colonials, but profit handsomely from Western tourism? Does she really think those islands would want to sever their ties to Great Britain?

Or could Omar be thinking of the French “imperialists”? Where are those French colonies that so offend her? The French left their last colony in North Africa, Algeria, in 1962, nearly 58 years ago. The vast territories of French West Africa and French Equatorial Africa were given their independence by 1960. Perhaps Ilhan Omar has some vague notion that the French still rule these lands. As for the two Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, and the two even smaller islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon in the North Atlantic, these are not colonies, but juridically parts of France itself, with full representation in the French Parliament.

There is one great imperialism that we can be sure Ilhan Omar does not recognize. This is the imperialism of the Muslim Arabs, who not only managed to conquer many lands and many peoples, but to impose their religion, and even their ethnic identity, on those peoples. Many of those peoples who converted to Islam, whether willingly, or out of a desire to escape the onerous conditions imposed on them as dhimmis (tolerated non-Muslims under Muslim rule), were so eager to identify with their conquerors, that that they took Arab names, and in some cases, assumed as well the name “Sayyid,” which meant they were declaring themselves to be descendants of Muhammad’s own tribe, the Quraysh. That is why the writer V. S. Naipaul, the scholar of Islam Anwar Sheikh, and many others have described Islam as the most successful imperialism in history, because those who are its victims identify completely with those victimizing them. Naipaul writes about this in Among the Believers — the Pakistanis, Malays, and Indonesians who , he discovered, all want to be “little Arabs.”

This desire makes sense. After all, the Message of Allah was delivered in Arabic, and to a 7th-century Arab. Ideally, the Qur’an must be read and recited in Arabic. Muslims who prostrate themselves in prayer must always turn toward Mecca, in Arabia. They make the Hajj, too, to the same city of Mecca, again in Arabia. As a consequence of all this, Arabs enjoy the highest prestige among Islamic peoples, and non-Arab Muslims seek to identify with them.

Many of those victims of Muslim Arab imperialism were taught to regard their own pre-Islamic histories as of no interest or significance; they dismissed those pasts as belonging to the Jahiliyya, the Time of Ignorance. A good example of this is the singular lack of interest shown by Muslim Pakistanis in the spectacular remains of Mohenjo-Daro, which dates from 2500 B.C., and is one of the world’s earliest major cities. But it is from the pre-Islamic times of ignorance, and consequently is of no significance to Muslims.

Among those conquered by Muslim Arabs, many people replaced their indigenous languages with Arabic; speakers of Coptic in Egypt, Aramaic in Syria, and Tamazight in North Africa have noticeably decreased over the centuries. Even after the conquered peoples converted to Islam, as non-Arabs they were regarded as inferior. The Berbers in North Africa, the region’s original inhabitants, today suffer from Arab cultural supremacism within their own lands, where their language, Tamazight, for a long time was prohibited from being taught or recognized as an official language – now it can again be taught in a few schools – and Berber culture continues to be suppressed. The Kurds, too, though Muslim, have been on the receiving end of Arab imperialism, that reached its apotheosis in Saddam Hussein’s murderous Anfal campaign, when his Arab soldiers murdered 182,000 Kurds.

Many may not know that the greatest mass murder in history was that conducted by Muslims in India, during several centuries of Mughal rule, when 70-80 million Hindus were killed. Those Hindus who chose to convert were the ancestors of today’s Muslims in Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. Does Ilhan Omar even know how Islam spread, through conquest, in India, and how many Hindus were its victims, and how many converted to Islam to avoid being killed? Perhaps she can be asked publicly about these matters; her display of ignorance will be most telling..

Where else do we see Muslim imperialism on display? Wherever Muslims are murdering non-Muslims in order to increase their own power, as with Boko Haram in Nigeria, and Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines, or with Muslims killing Copts in Egypt. These are attempts to strike terror in the hearts of non-Muslims, and if possible, to frighten some to convert, and to seize the lands, and sometimes to murder, those who refuse. Muslim imperialism is on the march, in a different way, even within European countries. Muslims have managed to carve out for themselves many No-Go areas, where non-Muslims fear to tread, and firemen enter only with police protection, and the police themselves enter only in groups. It’s a new kind of imperialism, where the conquerors enter not as armed invaders, but as economic migrants, then begin to live,  just as Western imperialists used to do, off the indigenous peoples in the countries they conquered. They do this without having to conquer others with weapons. Merely by being allowed to live in these Infidel lands in Europe, they find they can have every conceivable benefit lavished upon them: free or subsidized housing, free medical care, free education, unemployment benefits, family allowances. The huge sums transferred to these Muslim migrants by the state can be seen as a new form of imperialism, where one people lives off of another, in a conquest that is conducted through non-violent means, perfected by those Muslims who have been allowed to settle deep behind what they have always been taught are enemy lines, the lines of Dar al-Harb. This Islamic imperialism is just as effective as imperialist conquest in the classic sense, and is all the more dangerous for not being recognized by its victims for what it is.

A few questions might be addressed to the self-assured Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who is so eager to fight alongside Bernie Sanders against “Western imperialism.”

Ms. Omar, can you give us examples of “Western imperialism” today that you think need to be addressed? Just to refresh your memory, the last American quasi-colony, the Philippines, received its full independence in 1946. Puerto Rica is a territory, not an exploited colony; it receives $21 billion in aid from the American government each year; in 2017, 97% of Puerto Ricans voted for statehood; that certainly suggests they do not feel exploited by the United States. The last two British colonies of any size, Southern Rhodesia and British Honduras (now Belize), received their independence in 1980 and 1981, respectively. The small city-state of Hong Kong that was by then the very last Crown Colony was turned over to Chinese sovereignty in 1997, much to the regret of its inhabitants. The last French colony to receive independence was Algeria, in 1962. A handful of tiny French islands – Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Pierre and Miquelon — are now politically fully part of France, sending delegates to the French Parliament. So we remain puzzled about your determination to fight a non-existent “Western Imperialism.” Please tell us what you had in mind.

Ilhan Omar might consider abandoning her attempt to find examples of that “Western Imperialism” that so concerns her and to consider other imperialisms, outside the West. She might look into the Muslim Arabs who have not only conquered many peoples outside of Arabia during the past 1,400 years, but have convinced those peoples to identify completely with their conquerors, the Arabs, even taking Arab names upon conversion, and in some cases, assuming the name “Sayyid”  in order to identify themselves as descendants of the tribe of the Prophet.

Does she recognize the conquest by Muslim Arabs of many lands and peoples as “imperialism,” or is that something that she insists pertains only to the Western powers?

She might be asked what she makes of Egypt, where the entire population consisted of Coptic Christians before the Arabs arrived. How did that country go from being nearly 100% Coptic to becoming  85% Muslim? Does Ilhan Omar have any comment on how the Coptic Christians who remain are treated by the majority Muslims? She might be asked, too, what happened to the Zoroastrians of Persia, who disappeared almost entirely when the Muslim Arabs conquered that land, save for a group that found refuge in India where, ever since, they have been known as the Parsees. She might be asked, too, to comment on the situation of those Berbers today in North Africa, that is,  those Berbers who have managed to withstand Arabization in Algeria and Morocco, who have had to fight hard to retain their Berber language, culture, and identity.

There are so many more questions she might be asked, but let’s end our inquiry with two final questions for the Congresswoman.

“Ms. Omar, the Muslim imperialists who conquered India murdered between 70 and 80 million Hindus over several centuries of Muslim rule. Would you care to tell us what you make of that fact? And even today, Muslim terrorists, some based in Pakistan, still target Hindus in India. Think of those who have attacked the Parliament Building in New Delhi or, in 2008, hit 10 different sites in Mumbai. What do you believe they are after? Much of Indian territory was in 1947 given over to the creation of Muslim Pakistan (then West Pakistan) and Muslim Bangladesh (then East Pakistan). Yet Muslim terrorists continue to strike within India. Do they now want to conquer the rest of India? Does their Jihad against India’s Infidels have no end?

“And one last thing, Congresswoman.  The late scholar of Islam, Anwar Sheikh, who had grown up as a Muslim, famously wrote that ‘Islam is the vehicle for Arab supremacism.’ Would you care to discuss what he meant by that lapidary formulation?”

Raising these matters might just make Ms. Omar more hesitate to inveigh against “Western Imperialism” and possibly cause her to tiptoe very carefully around the subject of “imperialism” altogether, now that she realizes that others are ready and willing to discuss the Arab and Muslim varieties, that have been much more extensive, and have claimed many more victims, than anything done by “Western imperialists.” Should she choose, uncharacteristically, to shut up entirely about “imperialism,” that is an outcome devoutly to be wished.

As “America The Great” Fights; Trump-Hatred Soars

It’s often said by conservative voices that Trump hatred is not about Trump, it’s about you! (Meaning Trump supporters.) That’s partially true. Trump haters certainly do hate his supporters, too. But it goes much deeper than that.

Trump haters despise an America that sits atop the world economically, militarily and morally — particularly morally. They scoff at the idea of a bright shining city on a hill. And that means that this battle right now, today, is far bigger than Donald Trump, although he is an avatar for it. This battle is about whether America remains America — or the world becomes a leaderless cauldron of tyrannical chaos and misery.

Trump clearly loves and believes in America, quite unlike his predecessor. Leftist Trump-haters despise America the Great and prefer an America the Bleh.

It is why they refuse to say America is an exceptional nation, when by every historic metric it is. Recall that Barack Obama, when asked directly, said that he thought America was exceptional in the same way that the French think France is exceptional and other nationalities think the same about their own countries — i.e. it’s just so much nationalistic cheerleading, but no real truth to it.

Is it any surprise that Obama’s dislike for America, its racists “roots” and its colonizing (an absurd characterization) makes him the most popular leftist figure in a generation? He glibly insulted Americans and American history on a regular basis, traveling the world and apologizing for America, and the left applauded — the same left that hates Trump.

The left continually tears down American history by rewriting it and claiming that America began in Jamestown in 1619 when the first slaves were brought over. Slavery was a disgraceful part of America, but it was eradicated nearly 160 years ago and the last vestiges of legal racial discrimination were erased more than 50 years ago. The driving force of America that began at Plymouth with the freedom-loving Puritans and their desire for individual liberty is ignored or just lied about.

It is why so many leftists, in response to Make America Great Again, angrily say “America never was great.” They pretend to triangulate above the nationalistic, so-called pseudo patriotic impulse in the same way Obama did. But what they really reveal is they don’t particularly like America.

This explains why so much of the mainstream media have sold their souls professionally to take down Trump. He represents an America the Great philosophy that they simply abhor and don’t believe is true. So the New York Times, the single most influential media organ in the country, continues to recreate its newsroom around the next ginned up faux Trump scandal, acting in the precise way that a political opponent would act. Many of their stories are nothing short of campaign ads for Democrats.

It’s why the Washington Post will write extensively about a book by Anonymous, using anonymous sources to anonymously tell the world what a terrible administration Trump is running. Pure fiction as far as any reader or the Post knows. But their professional soul is sold to stop Trump’s…crudity? No, his vision.

Again, sure they hate Trump and they hate his supporters, but they mostly hate what both believe and are striving for: America the Great.

Why was there an instantaneous and self-described Resistance movement against Trump? Because of crude language or adulteries? Please, the left has delighted in introducing more and more crudity into our culture at every level — and they loved JFK, who reportedly brought prostitutes into the White House and had interns perform sex acts on friends. No. Was it Trump’s unorthodox style? That would hardly create a full-scale resistance starting with the million-woman march the day following his inauguration.

No, it was his vision for returning America to greatness and not settling for also-ran status. And it was his promise to clean out the Swamp of Washington, D.C. that drives so much of the American decline.

The Trump haters despise that vision that puts individual freedom over a conceptual collective good; that places solutions in the private sector and not giant government; that values hard work with grimy hands as equal to advanced college degrees; that values faith and family above any government institution or program; that assess common sense as more desirable than gobs of book-learning; that recognizes that America is truly exceptional in the history of all nations.

And most critically, it’s about a muscular pro-Americanism, an Eisenhower-Reagan Americanism where the one exceptional country in history continues its imperfect quest for protecting and extending individual liberty to the oppressed. It’s revealed in the diverging treatments of brutal Communist China and freedom-loving Chinese in Hong Kong.

Trump came into office with an agenda of Make America Great Again, which included a lot of things that American leftists hate. Victor Davis Hanson makes this point in the negative:

“Had Donald Trump in his first month as president declared that he was a centrist Republican —as many suspicious Never Trumpers predicted that he would, true to past form—and promoted cap-and-trade and solar and wind federal subsidies, tabled pipeline construction and abated federal leasing for gas and oil production, stayed in the Iran nuclear deal and Paris Climate Accord, appointed judges in the tradition of John Paul Stevens and David Souter, praised the “responsible” Palestinian leaders, pursued “comprehensive immigration reform” as a euphemism for blanket amnesties, then Trump would be treated largely as a George H.W. Bush or George W. Bush: hated, of course, but not obsessively so.”

He goes on:

“Had Trump kept within the media and cultural sidelines by giving interviews to “60 Minutes,” speaking at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, bringing in a few old Republican hands to run the staff or handle media relations like a David Gergen or Andrew Card, Trump would have been written off as a nice enough dunce.”

VDH is correct. Which goes to the point that it is not really Trump and his crude language and public feuds, nor is it his supporters. It’s his actual agenda of “America the Great.” They don’t believe it and they don’t want it.

This deeper reality makes the stakes of the fight all the larger. This is about more than the 2020 election, about Donald Trump, about the Republican Party, about conservatism. This is about an ascendent America vibrant with freedoms for all and acting as a shining city, or a declining America stagnating in European Union style bureaucratic control untouchable by the people.

Remember, the #resistance is deeply embedded in the State Department, the Department of Justice, the FBI, the CIA and even the White House — where Anonymous supposedly lurks. The permanent bureaucracy that actively works to undermine an elected President is a threat to America and the shining city.

Trump haters don’t really hate Trump and his supporters as much as they hate what Trump and his supporters believe and are fighting for. And that’s why we see everything at Defcon 1.

AOC And Fellow Radicals: ‘We Are Bringing the Party Home’

Campaigning with aging Communist and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders in Iowa over the weekend, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez  dismissed concerns from establishment Democrats that radicals like herself and Sanders are moving the Democrat Party “too far left.” Instead, she claimed they are “bringing the party home.”

“When people try to accuse us of going too far left — we’re not pushing the party left,” Ocasio-Cortez, otherwise known as AOC, told a crowd in Coralville, Iowa. “We are bringing the party home.”

“Are you all ready for a revolution?” she added. “I sure am.” So are her fellow freshmen representatives known as “The Squad”: Ilhan OmarRashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — extremists all. Not to mention older radicals like Sanders and his competitor Elizabeth Warren.

That’s because the Democrat Party has become the party of rebranded Communism. Their aim is the “fundamental transformation,” as Barack Obama notoriously put it, of the United States, including its economic transformation from capitalism to socialism.


ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ

Decrying Capitalism and America’s Racism & Environmental Policy

While speaking with Senator Bernie Sanders at a November 2019 “Climate Crisis” summit in Iowa, Ocasio-Cortez said:

“The reason we are in this crisis is because oil and gas has been one of the most profitable industries of the modern era and when we talk about fighting money in politics what we’re talking about is fighting big oil. We’re talking about fighting Wall Street. We’re talking about fighting big pharma.” Suggesting that the only way to get “get through this moment” [i.e., the Donald Trump presidency] was to “guarantee” health care to every American.”

She added:

“Here’s the thing, is that we can beat him but we have to vaccinate ourselves against something like this [Trump’s 2016 election victory] ever happening again, and the way we inoculate ourselves … from late-stage hyper capitalistic concentration of wealth among the very, very few is with a labor movement.”

Asserting also that “the way we inoculate ourselves from continuing to burn up our planet … is by honoring indigenous wisdom and allowing it to guide our climate policy,”

Ocasio-Cortez stated:

“The way that we preserve our systems is by transitioning to principles of universality. That means I want you clothed, I want you educated, I want you paid a living wage — no ifs, ands, or buts. And what that also means … is directly, consciously, combating white supremacy in the United States of America.”
