Clinton Prosecutor Sees Weak Impeachment Case Against Trump

House Democrats, legal analysts, and pundits suggested in recent weeks that President Donald Trump committed various impeachable crimes in his July phone call to Ukraine’s president.

But on Tuesday, the charge House Democrats came up with was a broad “abuse of power” claim, alleging that Trump solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election.

The second and last charge against the president is “obstruction of Congress,” for not complying with congressional subpoenas in the impeachment probe.

“They have passed through treason, they passed through bribery, they passed through extortion, they passed through an illegal campaign contribution, and they passed through obstruction of justice,” former independent counsel Robert Ray, who investigated President Bill Clinton, said of House Democrats’ recent rhetoric about Trump’s alleged offenses.

“This is what they have,” Ray told The Daily Signal, referring to Democrats’ announcement of the two charges they will pursue. “It was broadened to abuse of power, which would seem to have a lower burden of proof.”

Ray was part of independent counsel Ken Starr’s team, which sent the report to Congress in 1998 recommending Clinton’s impeachment on charges that included perjury and obstruction of justice. Ray completed the long-running investigation after Starr stepped away from the post.

Ray acknowledged that impeachment is both a political and legal process, recalling the often-quoted Gerald Ford standard when, as House Republican leader, Ford sought to impeach Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas in 1970.

“An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history,” Ford, a future president, asserted at the time. “Conviction results from whatever offense or offenses two-thirds of the other body [the Senate] considers to be sufficiently serious to require removal of the accused from office.”

But that is not in the tradition of impeachment at the presidential level, Ray contends.

“I remain of the view that a well-founded impeachment must [involve] a crime,” Ray said, adding: “Obstruction of Congress does not constitute a crime unless it constitutes obstruction of justice.”

The impeachment article on obstructing Congress by not complying with congressional subpoenas raises questions related to the separation of powers established in the Constitution, legal experts said.

“The executive branch is not required to do what the legislative branch orders it to do,” Thomas Jipping, a former chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee who helped oversee two impeachment trials of federal judges, told The Daily Signal.

“When Adam Schiff says ‘jump,’ Donald Trump is not required to say ‘how high,’” said Jipping, referring to the California Democrat, point man on impeachment as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. “There are real boundaries between branches of government.”

Not only is the article of impeachment on abuse of power lacking a finite crime, Jipping noted, the article is based largely on intent.

Trump, the article alleges, “solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States presidential election.”

“It’s about proving intent. This would be the first impeachment in history based on intentions,” said Jipping, now deputy director of the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at The Heritage Foundation. “The view is Trump pressured or coerced and demanded action for the purpose of getting reelected. That is at the heart of the whole impeachment case.”

Still, in announcing the two articles of impeachment, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., warned of the grave consequences arising from Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

“Our president holds the ultimate public trust. When he betrays that trust, and puts himself before country, he endangers the Constitution, he endangers our democracy, and he endangers our national security,” Nadler said in a formal statement. “The Framers prescribed a clear remedy for presidents who violate their oath of office. That is the power of impeachment.”

One former Justice Department lawyer, J. Christian Adams, summarized the abuse-of-power article as translating to “We don’t like Trump.”

The second article on obstructing Congress, Adams said, means “Trump didn’t do what we told him to do.”

“If that’s what the Democrats have, they are in trouble,” Adams, now president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, told The Daily Signal.

Adams noted that President Barack Obama took executive actions without Congress and withheld documents from Congress during the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal—so he could be accused credibly of both offenses if a Republican-controlled House had been inclined to do so.

“It boils down to this: Policy and ideological disagreements are not impeachable offenses,” Adams said.

The articles of impeachment against Clinton—perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with covering up an affair with a White House intern—were specific.

The two articles against Trump are similar to those contemplated against President Richard Nixon for the Watergate cover-up before he resigned: obstruction of justice, obstruction of Congress, and abuse of power.

But each of those articles cited specific conduct by Nixon that was criminal in nature.

4 Facts House Democrats Wish They Could Change

No matter what House Democrats may claim—and no matter how many times they try to change their story—they can’t run away from the facts.

Chalk up today as yet another lost day for Congress, as Democrat leaders scramble to justify why they’ve all but scrapped any legislative priorities for the year. But no matter how hard they try to spin their narrative to the media, change their argument, or implement a rigged process, at least one thing has been consistent throughout these impeachment hearings.

The facts haven’t changed. And that’s bad news for the do-nothing obstructionists:

  1. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by the President. Despite weeks of hearings, Democrats have not produced a single piece of evidence showing that President Trump committed any criminal, impeachable offense whatsoever.
  2. Ukraine has said there was no pressure. President Zelensky and other Ukrainian officials have explained repeatedly that they never felt pushed.
  3. Lethal aid to Ukraine wouldn’t even exist without President Trump. For all the Democrats’ posturing about national security and aid, it was President Trump who made the decision to provide Ukraine with lethal aid. The Obama Administration had rejected doing so for years.
  4. This is an unfair, unprecedented impeachment stunt. House Democrats have continually broken with precedent and implemented an unfair “investigation” in a desperate attempt to ram impeachment through Congress.

Of course, Democrats have changed their story so many times when it comes to what they are actually accusing President Trump of, it’s hard to keep up. As a result, American families are simply left scratching their heads, asking, “What was this all for?”

Imagine all that could have been accomplished had House Democrats worked this hard on things that actually matter to American citizens. In addition to the soaring Trump Economy—which is lowering unemployment and raising wages across the income spectrum—by now your medicine prices could be even lower, your border a little more secure, and the infrastructure in your state a little stronger and safer.

Sadly, we’ll never know.

JUST IN: President Trump weighs in on the Justice Dept. Inspector General report.


WATCH: First Lady visits Children’s National Hospital

First Lady Melania Trump spread some holiday cheer on Friday, visiting patients, family members, and medical staff at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.

This nearly 70-year tradition dates back to Elizabeth “Bess” Truman. During this year’s visit, the First Lady stopped by the hospital’s short-stay and surgical units, then made her way to a playroom where she participated in a Christmas craft-making project. Next came a Christmas book-reading for children at the hospital.

Terror Attack At Naval Air Station Highlights Immigration Catastrophe

Limitations in the vetting process endanger national security.

The nearly all-consuming fixation on the lack of border security along the U.S./Mexican border ignore the many other elements of what should be a cohesive and coordinated immigration system.

Contrary to the claims made by the open borders, immigration anarchists, the purpose of the border wall is not to prevent the entry of aliens and/or cargo into the United States, but to make certain that all who enter the United States are properly vetted and records of their entry are created.

However, not enough attention is paid to the vetting process itself upon which the integrity of the immigration system depends.

The issue of border security must include the process by which visas are issued and by which aliens are screened at ports of entry.

The great majority of foreign terrorists who have attacked our nation have actually entered the United States through ports of entry either with visas that were obtained by concealing the backgrounds and true identities of the aliens in question, or by making bogus claims to political asylum, getting released and then disappearing.

The issue of the vetting of aliens has made it to the front page of newspapers and the “A block” of television news program because of the deadly shooting at the Pensacola Air Naval Station by a 21 year old member of the Saudi military, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force as reported in the New York Times on December 6, 2019, Trainee on Military Base Mounts Deadly Attack.

It has been reported that Alshamrani had posted virulently anti-American remarks in social media.  The immediate obvious question is whether or not the vetting process including appropriate searches of social media accounts that might have disclosed his hatred of America before he was granted his visa.

The ability to effectively vet applicants is limited.  Searches delve into possible criminal histories, but when applicants have no criminal histories and no known ties to criminal or terrorist organizations, such vetting process may fail.

Apparently there are two purposes behind the training of foreign pilots by the U.S. military: to protect U.S. national security interests and encourage the sale of military aircraft and other equipment by U.S. military suppliers.

Justifiably, a number of political leaders, and other have called for the suspension of this program so that the vetting process can be evaluated.  To this point, on December 8, 2019 the New York Post reported, Lindsey Graham wants training program suspended after Pensacola shooting.

That report included this excerpt:

US Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican who represents the base, said on ABC’s “This Week” that the incident “has to inform our ongoing relationship with Saudi Arabia.”

“We should not be taking new incoming Saudi students until we’re absolutely confident in our vetting process,” Gaetz said.

There are currently more than 850 Saudis in the US for various training activities — among about 5,000 foreigners from 153 countries in the country undergoing some form of military training.

There has been a string of incidents that include foreign military students going missing in the United States in the past. There have also been worrying reports about foreign students enrolled in other U.S. schools going missing, including some who are citizens of countries that have a nexus to terrorism.  Yet with only about 6,000 ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents for the entire United States and with more than half of them engaged in the investigation of non-immigration issues, there are precious few agents available to enforce the immigration laws.  “Sanctuary” policies of a growing number of cities and states exacerbate the crisis.

One of the most astonishing incidents involving a failure of the vetting process occurred six months after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 when it was discovered that two of the dead terrorists had been granted authorization to attend a civilian flight school in March 2002, six months after they participated in the terror attacks of 9/11.

On March 19, 2001 the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims conducted a hearing into that fiasco on the topic, INS’s March 2002 Notification Of Approval Of Change Of Status For Pilot Training For Terrorist Hijackers Mohammed Atta And Marwan Al-Shehhi.  The video of that hearing is worth watching.

I was called as an expert witness at that hearing.

For all of the beast-beating and complaints of the members of that subcommittee and other members of congress, measures to prevent such failures have been outweighed by the demands of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a veritable laundry list of corporations and special interest groups that our immigration laws not be enforced and our borders be allowed to remain wide open by those who know the price of everything and the value of nothing- even when lives and national security are on the line!

Today we are focused on aliens being given the best possible military flight training in America’s latest fighter planes.  The possibilities of what such a highly-trained pilot could do in the seat of such as aircraft is mind-numbing.

In the wake of the shooting at the Pensacola Air Naval Station information had been circulated that the alleged shooter had visited New York City days before the attack, possibly in the company of other classmates.  This immediately gave rise the concern that he, and possibly others, might have been scoping out potential targets for terror attacks.

The mainstream media, in a moment of rare candor raised that possibility.  Yet no one had thought to a Department of Justice press release published just days earlier.

On December 3, 2019 the DOJ reported, Hizballah Operative Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison for Covert Terrorist Activities on Behalf of Hizballah’s Islamic Jihad Organization; Ali Kourani Was Trained by Hizballah’s External Terrorist Operations Component and Gathered Intelligence in New York City in Support of Attack-Planning Efforts.

You will notice in this excerpt from the earlier DOJ press release that announced Kourani’s  conviction that immigration law violations were among the crimes that he committed:

Yesterday, a jury returned a guilty verdict against Ali Kourani, a.k.a. “Ali Mohamad Kourani,” a.k.a. “Jacob Lewis,” a.k.a. “Daniel,” on all eight counts in the Indictment, which charged him with terrorism, sanctions and immigration offenses for his illicit work as an operative for Hizballah’s external attack-planning component.  Kourani is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 27, 2019…

My recent article, Alleged Hezbollah “Sleeper” Arrested In NYC By Joint Terrorism Task Force included this paragraph:

On September 19, 2019 the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York issued a press release that announced, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Announces Indictment Of New Jersey Man For Terrorist Activities On Behalf Of Hizballah’s Islamic Jihad Organization. The subtitle of that press release provides more disturbing information, Alexei Saab Allegedly Was Trained by Hizballah’s External Terrorist Operations Component in Bomb-Making and Conducted Intelligence-Gathering in New York City and Washington, D.C., and Elsewhere in Support of Hizballah’s Attack-Planning Efforts.

On August 2, 2019 the Justice Department posted thus extremely this worrying news release, Afghanistan National and Former U.S. Military Interpreter Charged for Role in Human Smuggling Conspiracy.

On August 20, 2018 the Department of Justice issued a press releaseTwo Individuals Charged for Acting as Illegal Agents of the Government of Iran. 

My piece written in February 2018, Saudi Graduate Of Al Qaeda Terror Training Camp Arrested In Oklahoma –  Alleged classmate of 9/11 hijackers attended US flight school in 2016 included a link to the DOJ press release, Saudi Citizen Charged in Oklahoma With Concealing Attendance at Al Qaeda Training Camp.

There is a clear nexus between immigration and national security yet, for decades, the immigration system has abjectly lacked the resources it needs to imbue this important mission with the resources essential to enhancing the integrity of this vital system.  Furthermore, the radical Left have demanded the dismantling of immigration law enforcement altogether, in essence ordering “Shields down” in a truly perilous era.

How many more innocent victims must be slaughtered before our nation comes to its senses?

The Democrats Hate ICE Because They Hate Americans

On February 15, 2019, President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States (Proclamation 9844), citing the National Emergencies Act, and ordered the diversion of billions of dollars of funds that had been appropriated to the U.S. Department of Defense for military construction. This construction is ongoing. Watch this video titled DOD lists where it will build new border wall:

According to Wikipedia:

national emergency is a situation in which a government is empowered to perform actions not normally permitted. The 1976 National Emergencies Act implemented various legal requirements regarding emergencies declared by the President of the United States.

Proclamation 9844 states in part:

The current situation at the southern border presents a border security and humanitarian crisis that threatens core national security interests and constitutes a national emergency. The southern border is a major entry point for criminals, gang members, and illicit narcotics. The problem of large-scale unlawful migration through the southern border is long-standing, and despite the executive branch’s exercise of existing statutory authorities, the situation has worsened in certain respects in recent years.

President Trump took this action because Democrats in Congress have:

  1. Failed to recognize that there is a crisis on the Southern border and
  2. Failed to fund the border wall during the normal budgetary process.

The building of a border wall was a campaign promise made by candidate Trump and remains a major goal of the Trump administration.

On December 9th, 2019 the Democrat Congressional Progressive Caucus sent out an email titled “Sign on to cut funding for border detentions.” The email states:

Earleir [sic] this year, The White House declared a phony “national emergency” at the border in an attempt to get funding for his wall.

Then months later, they requested $4.5 BILLION from Congress to fund ICE, expand family detention, and lock up more vulnerable migrants.

Now, they’re trying to get an ADDITIONAL $1.4 billion to double down on their cruel immigration policies!

This is a DISASTER. But thankfully, Progressives around the country are already proposing needed cuts to The White House’s ICE budget.

Are you with us? Please, sign on today to tell Congress to CUT funding for ICE:

The Democrat Congressional Progressive Caucus

What is the Democrat Congressional Progressive Caucus and who are its members?

According to their website:

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) consists of one United States Senator and seventy eight members of the United States House of Representatives, and is the largest caucus within the House Democratic Caucus.  Established in 1991, the CPC reflects the diversity and strength of the American people and seeks to give voice to the needs and aspirations of all Americans and to build a more just and humane society.

[ … ]

Our Caucus members promote a strong, progressive agenda, what we call “The Progressive Promise–Fairness for All”.  The Progressive Promise is rooted in four core principles that embody national priorities and are consistent with the values, needs and aspirations of all the American people, not just the powerful and the privileged.  They reflect a fundamental belief in government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

The four, core principles of the Progressive Promise:

1. Fighting for economic justice and security for all;
2. Protecting and preserving our civil rights and civil liberties;
3. Promoting global peace and security; and
4. Advancing environmental protection and energy independence

Members of the Democrat Congressional Caucus include Senator Bernie Sanders and all four members of The Squad, made up of Reps. Ilhan Omar (whip), Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

It is the Democrat Congressional Progressive Caucus that is driving the policies and politics of the Democrat Party.

Is there a National Emergency on our Southern Border?

The Democrat Congressional Progressive Caucus, according to their email, truly believes that there is no “national emergency” on our Southern border. They call President Trump’s February 15, 2019 declaration “phony.” Yet the last two Presidents have used this Executive privilage under law to declare a national emergency.

Multiple presidents have declared national emergencies during their terms in office.

Former President Clinton issued 17 national emergency proclamations of which 6 are still current.

Former President George W. Bush declared 13 national emergencies including one after the September 11th, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

Former President Barack Obama declare 12 national emergencies during his presidency including one to respond to the “swine flu epidemic in 2009.” President Trump to date has issued 3 national emergency proclamation.

If swine flu is permissible why aren’t the illegal flow of aliens, including the diseases they bring with them, across our borders a crisis?

If 9/11 is permissible why are the terrorist activities of the drug cartels crossing our borders not a crisis?

If even a single American is killed by someone here illegally then why isn’t that a border crisis?

In a TownHall.com column titled Part III: Like in Europe, America’s Broken Asylum System Enables Terrorist Infiltration Over the U.S.-Mexico Border Todd Bensman writes:

New research establishes the extent to which violent Islamic jihadists infiltrated over land borders as a new method to clandestinely reach targets in Europe, a first in contemporary terrorism history. This series explores the implications of Europe’s experience for U.S. border security.

On September 30, 2017, a Somali immigrant who initially had himself smuggled over the Mexico-California border conducted a double vehicle ramming and stabbing attack, carrying an ISIS flag, that left a police officer and four others gravely injured in Edmonton, Alberta.

But Abdulahi Hasan Sharif arguably would never have been present in Canada for his melee had he not been able to claim one of America’s most indulgent and abused immigration benefits: political asylum. Simply asking a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer at the border for asylum sets in motion a process that guarantees most foreign strangers legal entry into the United States for as long as processing takes, which can amount to years.

Conclusion

It is clear that the Democrats care more about illegal aliens than they do about protecting the American people.

The Guilty Accuse The Innocent Of That Which They Are Guilty Of

“Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.” –  Thomas Jefferson

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.” –  General Douglas MacArthur

“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.” –  General Douglas MacArthur

“The two enemies of the people are criminal and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” –  Thomas Jefferson


Whitewashing the Criminals and Destroying the Innocent

I watched Speaker Pelosi’s announcement regarding impeachment of our duly elected President who has not committed an impeachable offense.  When I listened to her, I wanted to take a baseball bat to the TV…  She starts out saying, “Let us begin where our founders began in 1776.”  What?  Who the hell wrote this speech for this Socialist Democrat?  She hasn’t a clue of our Declaration of Independence, neither has she a clue of our amazing Constitution and the founders who wrote it.  Watch her! Start at about 2:50 in this video of the six-minute speech.

And then she quotes the Declaration, which personally damns her and all her Democratic Socialist brethren for accusing our President of the very impeachable laws they themselves are breaking!  She calls our President a Monarch with whom we need to break our bonds!  Nancy, you’ve gone into Lala land because we need to break the bonds with you and your entire socialist commie ilk who are still so pissed off that you lost the election of your globalist elitist establishment insider, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to outsider Donald J. Trump who wanted to save our Republic from the likes of you.

Foreign Influence

Nancy Pelosi claims in her speech that our founders, having just fought a war for Independence, specifically feared the prospects of a “King President” who could be corrupted by foreign influence.

Psychological projection Nancy! You have learned well Saul Alinsky’s tactics of blaming your opponent for that of which you are guilty.  Oh yes Nancy Pelosi, you and your son are guilty of foreign influence, as are John Kerry and his son, and Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Vice President Joe Biden should have been impeached long ago for committing the crimes the left is blaming our President of doing.  And don’t forget that your Democratic President Clinton had good reason to be impeached; it was his Vice President, Al Gore, who sold military secrets to the Chinese communists to get funds to ensure the second term of Democratic President Clinton.

Pelosi goes on to state that the Father of our Constitution, James Madison, warned that a President might betray his trust to foreign powers which might prove fatal to the Republic.  I can think of plenty of previous presidents who have done just that, and they were mostly of the Democratic Party.  And Nancy, you’ve never called us a Republic, you’ve continually called us a Democracy which is mob rule and which you embrace.  A Republic is the Rule of Law, which you obviously detest.

The real fatality to the Republic is the Democratic Socialist Party.  Nancy, you’ve caved to the 2018 elected millennials and Islamists who hate our duly elected President so much that they’ve moved you to cow to their desires and you’re willing to risk your own party’s re-election to destroy our innocent President.  You, Nancy are a traitor to the oath you took to our Constitution and to the Republic.  You have willingly committed sedition.

Speaker Pelosi goes on to say that founder Gouverneur Morris feared that a President may be bribed by a greater interest to betray his trust.  Morris emphasized that the President is not the King, that the people are those in charge, but Nancy, you and your ilk have removed that very premise of our Constitution from the people!  You are the ones who wish to be in charge, not the American people who elected President Trump. You and your filthy socialist democrats are willing to destroy the Constitution, the Republic and America to gain the power you feel you lost because the people rejected your party and your corrupt candidate in 2016.

Pelosi goes on to say that the founders created a remedy to protect the people from a dangerous or corrupt leader.  Well Nancy, it didn’t help us much with FDR, two Bushes, Clinton or Obama, did it!  All of them were dangerous, and every one of them was corrupt and their administrations infiltrated with communists and Islamists.

Conclusion

Corruption still reigns in the intelligence community.  Attorney General Bill Barr, U.S. Attorney John Durham and Inspector General Michael Horowitz are telling us they’ve found little corruption in the intelligence community spying apparatus and the Democratic Party set up of Hillary Clinton’s opponent, Donald J. Trump.

Only a month ago Lou Dobbs of Fox Business Network told us that IG Horowitz had found no reason to charge Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, et al.  (He didn’t even mention Bruce and Nellie Ohr).  Tonight, December 5th, 2019, Lou Dobbs tells us that the Washington Post reported that U.S. Attorney John Durham told IG Horowitz’s office that he could not find any evidence that the Russia investigation was a U.S. intelligence enterprise.  Now we hear that John Durham just won’t comment.

Corruption continues against the Republic and the American people who elected Donald J. Trump.  Justice still eludes the innocent and Trump supporters.

Adam Schiff’s Release of Phone Records Invites Legal, Ethics Scrutiny

Rep. Rashida Tlaib gives keynote address at conference of anti-Semitic group dedicated to destroying Israel

Imagine the outcry if some Representative addressed the Ku Klux Klan. The outrage would be universal and he or she would be made to resign immediately. But although this is very much the same thing, no one will take any particular notice of this.

Find out the insidious agenda behind the hypocritical and deceptive “Palestinian” calls for “justice” in The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process.

“Rep. Rashida Tlaib Keynotes ‘American Muslims for Palestine’ Conference Devoted to Destroying Israel,” by Samantha Mandeles, Legal Insurrection, December 5, 2019:

Tlaib: “I’m incredibly proud to be here. The incredible work that all of you have done have opened doors for myself, somebody like me to serve in the United States Congress.”

In a recent post, I documented how American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) ejected me from its annual conference Thanksgiving weekend because it was afraid I would provide negative coverage. For background on the harassing treatment I received, see Fearing Negative Coverage, ‘American Muslims for Palestine’ Conference Ejects Legal Insurrection Reporter.

Now we know why AMP wanted to cleanse the audience of media who could report accurately on what was going on: The AMP conference was an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hatefest, and the keynote speaker was Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib, who has worked with the group on many occasions.

AMP – Key Anti-Israel Connector

American Muslims for Palestine is a key connector of anti-Israel Islamist and radical leftist groups, including fringe anti-Zionist Jews who provide cover.

Though it has a long history of opaque fundingstaff overlap with now-shuttered ‘charities’ found to be connected to terrorist groups, and persistently disseminating classic anti-Semitism, AMP managed to maintain its connections with ‘intersectional’ social justice activists by hijacking the language of human rights and claiming to fight for “oppressed peoples everywhere” (in the words of AMP speaker Linda Sarsour).

 

[Screenshot from AMPs Palestine Convention Facebook page, November 2019.]

You can read more about AMP and the groups it works with in some of my earlier posts:

AMP’s Annual Anti-Israel Hatefest

As in the past, AMP’s 2019 Palestine Conference was chock full of historical falsehoods and thinly veiled anti-Semitism. This is shocking to precisely nobody; this year’s speakers’ roster featured some of the most noxious anti-Israel agitators active today, including ‘intersectional’ activists:

Despite the behavior of her fellow AMP speakers, when Rep Tlaib took the stage at the annual Palestine Conference, she gushed about her pride in being invited to keynote, saying:

I’m incredibly proud to be here. The incredible work that all of you have done have opened doors for myself, somebody like me to serve in the United States Congress.

As Rep. Tlaib continued, she demonstrated a favorite rhetorical trick of the ‘intersectional’ far-left: “movement hijacking“—the appropriation and exploitation of unrelated social justice causes (frequently by BDS supporters) in order to subsume those causes within a broader left-wing movement in which anti-Israel activists are then revered as leaders.

I would remember the history here in this country…still, the oppression of our black brothers and sisters. Every time I saw the different color license plates, the dehumanization at the checkpoints, everything. So interconnected…So when you think about the border, you gotta understand how interconnected it is with the oppression, of what’s happening in Falastine, the oppression that’s happening to our people. When I see…like, the police going after, killing innocent people, innocent, treating African American brothers and sisters like they’re disposable, I think of Filastine and what happens to our brothers and sisters in the occupation.

Tlaib’s remarks echoed longstanding efforts by anti-Israel activists to stoke racial tension against Israel by falsely accusing it of being responsible for local police shootings of blacks in the U.S. As we documented, that campaign went into overdrive during the Ferguson riots, after the Michael Brown shooting in the summer of 2014.

You can watch Rep Tlaib’s entire AMP speech here and below.

There is much more. Read the rest here.

Nunes: Schiff Violated My ‘Civil Liberties’ With Phone Snooping

Rep. Devin Nunes said Wednesday that House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff violated his civil liberties by snooping in his phone records and publishing them in his impeachment report.

Schiff released a report Tuesday summarizing the impeachment testimony. None of the information in the report was new — except for the inclusion of phone records suggesting coordination between Nunes and President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Schiff declined to say when or how he had obtained the records, but Nunes noted Schiff had issued a subpoena to AT&T for several phone numbers.

I’m going to be looking for all my legal options on this, too,” Nunes added. “I mean, my civil liberties were violated here. … Adam Schiff, just because he’s chairman, doesn’t have the right to go subpoena — put a big fishing net out there — go grab a bunch of phone numbers, and have AT&T give you all the people they’ve talked to, and then him smear me and say, “Oh, he had all these conversations with Rudy Giuliani.”

In May 2017, Schiff was one of a number of prominent and influential Democrats who spoke at a Washington, D.C. “ideas conference” organized by the Center for American Progress. This event emphasized the need for Democrats to unite in uncompromising “resistance” against Trump while also developing “new, fresh, bold, provocative ideas that can move us forward.”

On November 16, 2018, Schiff – who was slated to become Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee on January 3, 2019 – gave an exclusive, closed-door briefing to members of the Democracy Alliance, a major group of wealthy Democrat funders who were, among other things, passionately dedicated to goal of crippling the Trump presidency.

‘Abortion on Demand Agenda Is Immoral’: Meet Georgia’s Incoming Senator

In a televised speech on Wednesday, Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp officially announced financial executive Kelly Loeffler as his pick to be the state’s next U.S. senator.

Kemp—who has mulled over hundreds of applications in the months since Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson announced he would be stepping down—officially unveiled Loeffler as his choice on Wednesday. In a speech at the Georgia State Capitol, the governor said Loeffler would serve in the Senate as a steadfast conservative who would support the Trump agenda.

“Kelly Loeffler will stand with our president, Sen. Perdue, and their allies in the House and Senate to keep America great,” Kemp said, invoking the president’s reelection slogan. “She will end this impeachment circus in Washington, and get Congress back to working for the people of our country.”

Despite Loeffler holding no prior political experience, Kemp chose her because he is betting that she will help bring female voters back into the Georgia GOP fold. Additionally, Loeffler’s strong business background was viewed as an advantage, allowing her to self-fund ahead of what will likely be a tough 2020 election cycle in the state.

Speaking for the first time as a senator-designate, Loeffler made clear her conservative bona fides.

“I’m not a career politician, or even someone who’s run for office. I’ve spent the last 25 years building businesses, taking risks, and creating jobs. I haven’t spent my life trying to get to Washington,” Loeffler said. “I’m a life-long conservative, pro-Second Amendment, pro-Trump, pro-military, and pro-wall,” she went on, which earned applause from the crowd gathered around her.

“I make no apologies for my conservative values, and I look forward to supporting President Trump’s conservative judges,” she said, adding that she is “strongly pro-life” and voiced explicit support for South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham’s 20-week abortion ban.

“The abortion on demand agenda is immoral,” Loeffler also said, adding, “when it comes to protecting innocent life, I look to God because every life is a blessing.”

Loeffler is mostly known for being the co-owner of Georgia’s WNBA team, the Atlanta Dream. She also serves as the chief executive of Bakkt, a subsidiary of the Georgia-based Intercontinental Exchange Inc. Loeffler is married to the Intercontinental Exchange’s founder and CEO, Jeff Sprecher, and together, the couple has made considerable donations to the Republican National Committee in recent time.

However, she will likely need to keep proving her conservative credentials in the run-up to 2020 elections, where voters will decide if she can finish the remainder of Isakson’s term. The days leading up to her appointment have been marked with Republican infighting, as some party hardliners believe she is not conservative enough for the seat.

Media personalities like Sean Hannity and lawmakers like Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz heavily pressured Kemp to shy away from Loeffler and to pick Georgia Rep. Doug Collins instead. Gaetz went so far as to threaten Kemp with a primary challenger if he chose the businesswoman. Those efforts were not successful in changing the governor’s mind in the end.

Collins, for his part, has not ruled out a 2020 campaign for the Senate seat. He said he will make a decision sometime after Kemp’s announcement.

As for national Republicans, they appear to be coalescing around Kemp’s choice.

“Everybody knows that a generational leader like Johnny Isakson is irreplaceable, but Ms. Loeffler has an impressive record in business and community leadership. I am confident she is well prepared to continue Sen. Isakson’s historic legacy of advocating for veterans, strengthening our national defense, and fighting for middle-class families,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday, adding that she has his “full support” for her 2020 election.

Isakson, who is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, announced in August that he would be stepping down at the end of the year.

Linda Sarsour Compares Jews to White Supremacists [+Videos]

In their recent 2019 annual conference, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) brought out their Jew-hating Islamist show ponies, Linda Sarsour and Zahra Billoo.

Watch Linda Sarsour at the conference, where she compares Zionists to “white supremacists” and claims that Israel is “built on the idea that Jews are supreme to everybody else.” After trotting out this anti-Semitic trope, she moves on to another one — that the Zionist movement is backed by a “wealth of resources” (read: Jewish money and power).

Sarsour and Billoo have steadfastly sought the elimination of the Jewish state, while using naive, liberal Jewish-American allies to insulate themselves against criticism.

Now,  Sarsour and Billoo just pulled the rug out from under the Jewish right to exist in interfaith spaces.

The goal of these anti-Semites was always targeting Jews themselves. Calling their grievances against Israel part of “Jewish supremacy” is the beginning of a landslide into where they will eventually go: Targeting Jews directly, beginning with Jews in Israel. And of course, there’s wiping Israel off the map altogether. We all remember this:

Painting the Monster as a Hero

What is the difference between Linda Sarsour or Zahra Billoo versus the secret Nazi chat groups on Telegram I track as part of Clarion Project’s Preventing Violent Extremism program?

The answer is that Sarsour and Billoo are openly telling you who they are.

The Islamist cause is steadfastly crafting a plot based on the “seven story archetypes,” a concept detailed by Christopher Booker in his book The 7 basic plots, which distills all of story-telling into 7 basic archetypes that make up all of storytelling throughout history. Learning how to use these archetypes is a key to marketing your narrative.

In this case, the Islamist plot is archetype #1, “Overcoming the Monster” in which Jews (or the Jewish state) need to be painted as the beast. The same message is mirrored by private neo-Nazi chat groups I follow. Here’s an image one neo-Nazi group shared this morning.

Notice the same trope of hero vs. beast.
Notice the swastika driving the sword.
Notice the dehumanization of Jews (portrayed as snakes).
Notice the language of revolution.

These are extremist fictions that use the Jungian hero myth to drive an extremist narrative. The myth of hero vs. monster offer a universality of the collective consciousness that make it easier for a large group of people to jump on. This is storytelling, but it is also part of how propaganda works. Successful propaganda is at its core a distortion that is sold as a simple story.

Islamists Are Now Painting Themselves as Social Justice Warriors

In order to better position themselves as heroes in the public eye, Islamists are shaping their identity through identifying themselves with contemporary social justice issues, such as challenging white supremacy, colonization, race-based rights and climate change.

None of these issues are seen as necessary dialogues under the banner of human rights; they’re being framed as revolutions that have to be pushed forward without negotiation or discussion.

The strategy to package the Islamist agenda as a “hero against the monster” is why you’ve seen Islamists paint Jews as colonizers.

When it’s an interfaith day, Islamists will call Jews brothers in faith, but when it’s a day to wear another mask, Jews are lumped together with “Alt-Right” white supremacists. Their strategies may shift, but the plot is always the same: The illusion that Islamists are fighting some horrible oppression, some great monster.

Among social justice warriors, today’s flavor of “monster” is climate change, which is why we are now seeing Islamists using this issue to drive attention to Palestine.

Al Jazeera has been steadily pushing climate stories, leading up to the preposterous merger of climate issues with Palestine.

Yet, sadly, even Palestine is simply the humanitarian shell used to camouflage deep-seated hatred for Jews and the Jewish state. So are the other social justice issues Islamists claim to support.

Coattailing Hate Through ‘Social Justice’

Islamists will coattail on any trending social justice issue they can to drive attention back to the shell, and use the shell (Palestine) to attack the target (Jews).

Social justice causes used by Islamists to further their agenda have included Black Lives Matter and indigenous rights. While the voices of minorities deserve to be supported in the right way, when Islamists support minorities, it’s usually more to do with being a cover for their own interests. It’s not authentic interest in the issue itself.

Take a look at Islamist support for Standing Rock, for example. Instead of showing up and supporting water protectors because it’s the right thing to do, Islamists dragged along Palestinian flags. Considering Islamists are meant to be against colonizer narratives, it’s a bit of an imperialist move to stick your flag on the sacred land of people — people who faced oppression and genocide that was often justified because a flag was stuck in the ground.

If you authentically care about an issue and support a group of people, stand with them without standing on them to uplift your own agenda. Islamists don’t hold authentic space for oppressed minorities because they don’t actually care: They’re using these people.

In truth, Islamists are ideological colonizers curb-stomping original voices and representation of communities by flagging their own issue.

This weekend at the AMP conference, Islamist-in-office Rashida Tlaib put American tax dollars to work campaigning for Palestine while attaching Palestine to another social justice issue at home:

“Every time I see … the police going after, killing innocent people, innocent, treating African American brothers and sisters like they’re disposable, I think of Philastine [Palestine] and what happens to our brothers and sisters in the occupation.”

“This othering, this dehumanization, is painful. But if we don’t speak up for each other, we give each other credibility, we grow this movement into something stronger. So when you see these things understand how interconnected it is. Because when I’m fighting for clean water in the city of Detroit and all throughout Wayne County that I ever represent, I’m fighting for clean water in Gaza, access to water there. So all of it is so interconnected.”

Beneath the primer of social justice issues, there’s a real cognitive dissociation between the claim and the fact. As Investigative Project’s Steve Emerson expands further,

“None of the AMP speakers criticized Israeli policies. Each took issue with Zionism, the ideal that calls for a state for Jewish people in their ancestral homeland. “Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor” is among the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)’s working definition of anti-Semitism, which has been adopted by 20 countries, including the United States.

Emerson also speaks to the political and demographic realities within Israel, “Where Israeli Arabs serve on courts, as military leaders and in the Knesset [the parliament] …[and where the] Joint List, a coalition of Israeli-Arab parties, won 13 Knesset seats.”

However, to be able to have a calm and rational conversation about the facts means putting down the pitchfork of revolutions. It means putting away the childish fairytale of hero and villain. It means being real leaders willing to come to the table gracefully and without hateful, anti-Semitic bias.

“The Spirit of America” is shining in the White House, First Lady Melania Trump announced on Twitter yesterday, unveiling the 2019 White House Christmas decorations.

The First Family is celebrating their third Christmas in the White House. This year’s theme is a tribute to the traditions, customs, and history that make America great. Handpicked by the First Lady herself, the 2019 White House decorations celebrate the courageous individuals who have shaped our country and kept the American spirit alive:

  • Upon entering the East Wing, visitors first see the cherished Gold Star Family Tree, proudly decorated by the Gold Star families of our great American military.
  • In the East Room, four star-spangled trees stand tall, glimmering with stars and cascading ribbons. Features of the American flag are proudly incorporated.
  • The State Dining room celebrates “America, the beautiful,” honoring landmarks from across our country—including the Golden Gate Bridge, Space Needle, Mount Rushmore, the Alamo, Gateway Arch, Liberty Bell, and Statue of Liberty.
  • Ending in the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall, guests find themselves in a glistening winter garden filled with 22 evergreens, 14 golden magnolia topiaries, 10 floral urns, and dusted with fresh-fallen snow.

I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!” the First Lady tweeted.

Four Years Ago Today: A Tribute to the Victims of the San Bernardino Jihad Attack

Four years ago today, at 10:58 PST on December 2, 2015, Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik began shooting his own friends and colleagues at the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health.

By 11:04, the first police arrived at the scene, but Farook and Malik had already escaped. Four hours later (at 3:08), they were sighted on North Tippecanoe Avenue in San Bernardino by a law enforcement officer, and by 3:14:53, both had been killed in a dramatic shootout with police, just 1.7 miles away from the Department of Public Health.

Here are the pictures of the 14 people who lost their lives in this Islamic Jihad attack. More can be learned about them herehere and here.

What we don’t see here are the pictures of the 17 other people who were injured during the shootings, nor do we know very much about what they’ve gone through because of their injuries, or how they’ve have been doing in the last four years since the attack.

We don’t know very much about their families, either, and the great price they have paid since that day, four years ago.

I have had the honor of getting to know some of them.

As a sworn Federal Law Enforcement Officer who has also been deeply affected by this case, it is my intention, in the weeks, months and years ahead, to help make sure that their stories are not forgotten, and that on one fine day, we will all know more about what really happened on that December day in San Bernardino.

CrowdStrike: a Conspiracy Wrapped in a Conspiracy Inside a Conspiracy

In the last few days, media talking heads have been saying the word “CrowdStrike” a lot, defining it as a wild conspiracy theory originating in Moscow. They were joined by Chris Wallace at Fox News, who informed us that president Trump and his ill-informed fans believe in a crazy idea that the DNC wasn’t hacked by the Russians but by some Ukrainian group named CrowdStrike that stole the DNC server and brought it to Ukraine , and that it was Ukraine that meddled in our 2016 election and not Russia.

A crazy idea indeed. Except that neither Trump nor his fans had ever heard of it until the Democrat-media complex condescendingly informed them that these are their beliefs.

Let’s look at the facts:

Fact 1. In 2016 the DNC hired the Ukrainian-linked firm CrowdStrike to analyze their server and investigate a data breach.

Fact 2. CrowdStrike experts determined that the culprit was Russia.

Fact 3. The FBI never received access to the DNC server, so the Russian connection was never officially confirmed and continues to be an allegation coming from the DNC and its Ukrainian-linked contractor.

Fact 4. Absent the official verdict, other theories continue to circulate, including the possibility that the theft was an inside job by a DNC employee, who simply copied the files to a USB drive and sent it to WikiLeaks.

None of these facts was ever disputed by anyone. The media largely ignored them except for the part about the Russian hackers, which boosted their own, now debunked, wild conspiracy theory that Trump was a Russian agent.

Now that Trump had asked the newly elected Ukrainian president Zelensky to look into CrowdStrike during that fateful July phone call, the media all at once started telling us that “CrowdStrike” is a code word for a conspiracy theory so insane that only Trump could believe in it, which is just more proof of how insane he is.

But if Trump had really said what Mr. Wallace and the media claim, Ukrainians would be the first to call him on it and the impeachment would’ve been over by now. Instead, Ukrainians back Trump every step of the way.

So where did this pretzel-shaped fake news come from, and why is it being peddled now?

Note this is a classic case study of propaganda and media manipulation:

1. Take an idea or a story that you wish to go away and make up an obviously bogus story with the same names and details as the real one.

2. Start planting it simultaneously on media channels until the fake story supplants the real one, while claiming this is what your opponents really believe.

3. Have various fact-checking outlets debunk your fake story as an absurd conspiracy theory. Ridicule those who allegedly believe in it. Better yet, have late night comedians do it for you.

4. Once your opponent is brought down, mercilessly plant your boot on his face and never let up.

This mass manipulation technology had been tested and perfected by the Soviet propaganda machine, both domestically and overseas, where it was successfully deployed by the KGB. The Kremlin still uses it, although it can no longer afford it on the same grandiose scale. In this sense, the Democratic think tanks are the true successors of the KGB in deviousness, scope, and worldwide reach of fake narratives. How they inherited these methods from the KGB is a story for another day.

For a long time this technology was allowing the Democrats to delegitimize opposition by convincing large numbers of Americans that Republicans are…

  • Haters
  • Racists
  • Fascists
  • Deniers of science
  • Destroyers of the environment
  • Heartless sellouts to corporate interests

And so on – the list is endless.

The Soviet communists had aptly named it “disinformation,” which is a cut above the English word “misinformation.” It includes a variety of methods for a variety of needs, from bringing down an opponent to revising history to creating a new historical reality altogether. In this sense, most Hollywood movies on historical subjects today disinform us about history, supplanting it with a bogus “progressive” narrative. The Soviet term for such art was “socialist realism.”

Long story short, the Democrat-media complex has successfully convinced one half of the world that Trump is a Russian agent. Now they’re acting as if they’d spent the last three years in a coma, unaware of any bombshell stories about collusion. And bombshell stories without any continuation are a telltale sign of fake narratives. The only consequence of these bombshells is mass amnesia among the foot soldiers.

The Trump-Russian outrage is dead, long live the Trump-Ukraine outrage. And when that outrage is dead, the next outrage that will be just outrageous.

The current impeachment narrative alleges that Trump used military aid as leverage in asking Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden (which implies the Democrats know Biden is dirty, otherwise why bother?). What’s not in this picture is CrowdStrike. Even though Trump mentioned it in the phone call, it has nothing to do with the Bidens nor the Javelin missiles. CrowdStrike has nothing to do with impeachment. We’re told it’s just a silly conspiracy theory in Trump’s head, that it’s a nonissue.

But then why fabricate fake news about it and plant blatant lies simultaneously in all media outlets from Mother Jones to Fox News? Why risk being exposed over such a nonissue? Perhaps because it’s more important than the story suggests.

Only a computer illiterate would think that CrowdStrike needed to take the physical DNC server to Ukraine in order to analyze it. Any computer can be cloned and its digital image can be sent anywhere on the planet in the form of ones and zeroes. It can also exist in multiple digital copies, carrying not just confidential archives, but also history logs and other content that can reveal to an expert whether the hacking occurred, and if so, by whom.

The copies of the DNC server on CrowdStrike computers are likely to hold the key to understanding what really happened during the 2016 election, the origin of the anti-Trump witch hunt, and the toxic cloud of lies that had been hanging over the world and poisoning minds during the last three years.

And now the new Ukrainian government might subpoena these copies from CrowdStrike and finally pass them to FBI experts, which should’ve been done three years ago. The danger of this happening is a much greater incentive for the Democrats to preemptively destroy Trump than all the dirt Joe Biden had been rolling in as Obama’s vice president.

This gives the supposedly innocuous reference to CrowdStrike during Trump’s call a lot more gravity and the previously incoherent part of the transcript begins to make sense.

PRESIDENT TRUMP:

“I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation.”

If you read the transcript on the day it was released, you probably didn’t understand what Trump was even talking about, let alone what had caused such a disproportionate outrage, complete with whistle blowing and calls for impeachment. What in that mild conversation could possibly terrify the Democrats so much? They were terrified because, unlike most Americans, the Democrats knew exactly what Trump was talking about. And now you know, too.

The fraudulent “CrowdStrike conspiracy” deflection is not a show of the Democrats’ strength. Instead, It betrays their desperation and panic, which tells us that Trump is squarely over the target.

It also helps us to see who at Fox News can be trusted to tell us the truth. And it ain’t Chris Wallace.

The Democrats’ Trump Impeachment Game Has Become an Exercise in the Perversion of Governance

VIDEO: Death of Globalism

The news that really never makes the news, certainly not the trending news of the day, is how President Trump is leading the world away from globalism and a tyrannical global police state. All indications are that Boris Johnson will lead the way against globalist policies in the UK and of course we, and the world, have President Donald J Trump. As I stated, way back when, Global Support Coming Soon for Trump.

In previous related articles that I have written which are archived here on my website under the financial category, I have been talking about Trump restoring sound money and resetting the global economic, trade and monetary system, the GFR or “Global Financial Reset”. You cannot make America Great Again unless you control the economy and control your own currency. To remain fully informed, for what will prove down the road to be one of the biggest news stories of the century, I encourage you to subscribe for free to my YouTube channel and visit with me and Economist Dr. Kirk Elliott, (nominated for two Trump committee positions), as we take on step by step, the behind the news news of the Global Financial Reset. Here is a link to that YouTube playlist. We began broadcasting each Wednesday at 6:00 PM on July 17, 2019. Subscribe to my channel today.

Global Financial Reset

Death of Globalism

In this video clip of a speech I gave at the Sarasota Truth Conference in September 2019, you will come to understand what Globalism is and the origins of Globalism. I connect the dots on just how it is that President Trump is also draining the economic swamp and that we are well on our way now only after three short years, to delivering a death to globalism. By the mid to late term of President Trumps second term we may see full victory. This video clip and the GFR (Global Financial Reset) playlist is a good way to be informed and to stay informed and connected.

MUST SEE SPEECH ON DEATH OF GLOBALISM

Summary

In short, Trump is quietly setting the stage. Manufacturers are returning home. Apple is launching its new massive facility in Texas. Jobs follow manufacturing so this is a good thing. For all of the President’s progress in this area click on this link. NAFTA’s rude awakening under President Trump along with tariffs and trade deal negotiations around the world are yet additional steps towards the ultimate reset.

What is the ultimate reset? Seizing control from a debt based Central Bank, Petrodollar, IMF, Federal Reserve banking and monetary system by restoring sound money and creating a booming economy here at home while providing opportunity to other nations who don’t fall off the cliff with the old guard and come aboard in this new world that is being created before our very eyes, (well if you know where to look  for information). This is why Pelosi will not sign the USMCA document that the President so wisely and brilliantly put forth. Why? Because it will deliver yet another blow to the ruling elites march towards globalism. It’s okay we will get it done and Pelosi’s days are numbered anyway while Trump has another five years to set the world right. In short this is what is happening but again please subscribe to the YouTube Channel and become familiar with the playlist titled GFR for weekly discussions with me and the  Economist.

  • Strong arming and exposing the Federal Reserve
  • De-funding the UN and setting NAFTA straight
  • Manufacturing returning home
  • Best Economy by most measures in the history of our country and best economy by far in the world today
  • HR 24 & HR 25

China. Yes China. Trump has this covered. Don’t buy the fake news headlines. Finally China has met it’s match. The plan to empower China as part of the globalists plan has been thwarted by Trump. China is hemorrhaging and in a rapid decline having the plug pulled out by Trump. President Trump is repositioning step by step the global playing field while working their own rigged system against them by keeping the markets propped and expanding. Big historical change begins sometime after the 2020 election. The global shift of power is now well underway.

Video Commentary

Clarion Call

This battle will rage on for the rest of our lives. Pray for our President and his family. No Trump-no hope. What we do right here, right now is for posterity. So when your children and grandchildren ask you “What were you doing when the global governance was being thrust down the throat of America and the world, what will your answer be? Freedom, it’s up to U.S.

Soros-Funded ‘United We Dream’: ‘We Need to Abolish ICE’

United We Dream, an open borders lobbying group partially funded by billionaire globalist George Soros, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that “we need to abolish” the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to protect illegal aliens accused of visa fraud.

“All year, ICE has been running a fraudulent university to bait and arrest (mostly Indian) immigrants looking for a chance at higher education,” the group tweeted. “They’ve arrested 250 people. This agency is vile. We need to #AbolishICE!”

This week ICE arrested about 250 foreign nationals in the case of a fake university set up by the Dept. of Homeland Security. The DoJ said 100% of the “students never spent a single second in a classroom” because the fake university had no teachers or educational services.

United We Dream, funded partially by Soros’s Open Society Foundation, wants an end to national borders and amnesty for all illegal aliens, along with the Soros-funded American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).


United We Dream (UWD)

7 Known Connections

On February 14, 2019, UWD held a demonstration where approximately 50 people gathered on Capitol Hill to demand that Congress stop enforcing immigration laws and grant amnesty to all “undocumented” people residing in the United States. They also demanded that the Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and the Customs & Border Protection (CBP) agency be defunded and dismantled. Among the chants they shouted were the following:

  • “We have nothing to lose but our chains!” (This is a famous quote from Karl Marx‘s Communist Manifesto.)
  • “[I] Came down to the Capitol to take back what they stole from me!”
  • “Undocumented, unafraid!”
  • “Queer, trans, unashamed!”
  • “No papers, no fear!”
  • “Up up with liberation, down down with deportation!”
