Twitter, Facebook Suppress New York Post Report on Hunter Biden

Twitter on Wednesday afternoon began blocking tweets from being posted that contained links to the New York Post’s report on alleged emails that purportedly show Hunter Biden offered to introduce then-Vice President Joe Biden to an executive of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

“We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful,” Twitter told users who attempted to post a tweet containing a link to the Post’s story.

A Twitter spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the platform took action to limit the spread of the Post’s report because of the lack of authoritative reporting on the origins of the materials cited by the outlet.

“In line with our Hacked Materials Policy, as well as our approach to blocking URLs, we are taking action to block any links to or images of the material in question on Twitter,” the spokesperson said.

There’s no evidence at the moment the Post relied on hacked materials for its report.

According to the Post, the email was part of a “massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer” that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019. The owner of the repair shop said the customer never came back to pay for the service and retrieve the computer, the Post reported.

The Post uploaded an invoice signed by the customer that states that equipment left with the repair shop “after 90 days of notification of completed service will be treated as abandoned.”

The repair shop owner later alerted the FBI to the existence of the laptop and its hard drive after it went unclaimed, both of which were seized by federal authorities in December, according to a federal subpoena obtained by the Post.

Before the laptop was seized, however, the shop owner reportedly made a copy of its hard drive and turned it over to a lawyer for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who in turn provided a copy of the hard drive’s contents to the Post.

The Daily Caller News Foundation has not confirmed the authenticity of the emails reported by the Post, and the Biden campaign issued a statement on Wednesday denying that Biden met with the Burisma executive in 2015 as alleged in the Post’s report.

Also on Wednesday afternoon, Twitter began blocking any tweet from being posted that contained links to one of the two documents the Post uploaded to document sharing platform Scribd.

One of the documents depicts an alleged email sent by Hunter Biden in April 2014 to his former business partner Devon Archer, and the other is an alleged email that Vadym Pozharsky, an advisor to Burisma’s board of directors, sent to Hunter Biden and Archer in May 2014.

Facebook spokesman Andy Stone, a former staffer for the Democratic House Majority PAC and former California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, announced earlier Wednesday it would reduce the distribution of the Post’s report despite the lack of any fact-checks against the story.

Trump to Iran: ‘Do Not F**k Around with Us’

After Obama gave them billions, it’s easy to see why the Mullahs think America is a pushover. My latest in FrontPage:

Iran, said President Trump on the Rush Limbaugh show on Friday, has been “put on notice.” The President elaborated: “If you f–k around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.” Amid all the pearl-clutching on the Left over the President’s language (as if any Leftist politician speaksdemurely by comparison), the point has been lost that Trump’s tough stance toward the Islamic Republic of Iran has been effective in a way that Obama’s billions never were.

Back in April, for example, Trump tweeted: “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.” This came after, according to Business Insider, “nearly a dozen Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy vessels sailed out Wednesday to harass a collection of US Navy and Coast Guard vessels conducting operations in international waters.”

The U.S. Navy stated that eleven Iranian boats of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Navy (IRGCN) “conducted dangerous and harassing approaches,” and added that “the IRGCN’s dangerous and provocative actions increased the risk of miscalculation and collision.” The Iranians, said the Navy statement, were violating the “rules of the road.”

But then came Trump’s threat, and lo and behold, the Iranian harassment of American ships ended. Trump has demonstrated again and again that being strong with Iran, instead of pursuing appeasement as Obama did, works. As Obama (who stopped Israel from going after Quds Force commander Qasim Soleimani) concluded his notorious nuclear deal with Iran, Iranian political analyst Ali Wambold pointed out that the Constitution of the Islamic Republic “proclaims ‘the ideological mission of jihad,’ which it defines as ‘extending the sovereignty of God’s law throughout the world,’ through Iran’s Army and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.” Thus, he said, “to treat with the Islamic Republic over the particulars of its weaponry while failing to address the very purpose of its bellicosity is delusional. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action does nothing to change the fact that, in plain Farsi, Iran is committed to world conquest by Islam, with its clerics as warlords. Those to be conquered include America (the ‘Great Satan’), Israel (the ‘Little Satan’) and the Sunni-led Gulf States.”

The nuke deal did nothing to change that aspiration because it cannot be changed. Iran’s Brigadier General Qolamhossein Qeib-parvar of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has declared: “There are only two things that would end enmity between us and the US. Either the US president and EU leaders should convert to Islam and imitate the Supreme Leader, or Iran should abandon Islam and the Islamic revolution. If they are not going to turn Muslim, we are not going to abandon Islam or the revolution either. But I do not know why some people believe that some day we will make peace with the US and start relations with them.”

On September 23, 2015, two months after the nuke deal was finalized, Khamenei published an article entitled “The Idols Will Be Shattered,” illustrated with a drawing of the Statue of Liberty shattered in pieces. In it he declared, “The idol of the soul, the idol of pride, [and] the idol of sexual lust; the idol of tyranny and subservience; the idol of global tyranny [that is, the U.S.]; the idol of sloth and irresponsibility; and the other idols that shame the precious human soul—a plan that will spring forth from the depths of the heart will shatter them.”

But then Donald Trump became President. Iran continued its adventurism, and got new sanctions. Nonetheless, it persisted, and Soleimani was killed. Do the mullahs really doubt that Trump will act swiftly and decisively in response to further Iranian provocations? The Left’s outrage over the President’s language may be designed to obscure the fact that his strategy is working. Islamic supremacists and jihadis generally understand the world in terms of strength and weakness. They respect strength and despise weakness, and they see appeasement and accommodation as weakness. When Obama gave them billions and a pathway to nuclear weapons within ten years, they became more aggressive than ever. When Trump spoke and acted more firmly, they have curbed their activities.

But will the establishment media ever grasp the change, or report it to the American people? Of course not. They would much rather f**k with the President.

Communism is Treason!

August 24 marks sixty-six years since President Eisenhower signed the Communist Control Act into law. Controlled press outlets from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal excoriated the Act when it passed Congress, powerful think tanks and lobbying groups rose up in protest, and it was ultimately never enforced except in a handful of cases. I contend that expanding the Communist Control Act’s scope and power, and then strictly enforcing it in order to criminalize communism, is the only way America will survive the coming cataclysm planned by the enemies among us. The war cry of every patriotic American must become: Communism is treason; death to communism!

The Communist Control Act of 1954 outlawed the Communist Party USA and listed several important reasons why drastic action was needed to root out the communist conspiracy. The relevant portion of the legislation reads:

“The Congress hereby finds and declares that the Communist Party of the United States, although purportedly a political party, is in fact an instrumentality of a conspiracy to overthrow the Government of the United States. It constitutes an authoritarian dictatorship within a republic, demanding for itself the rights and privileges accorded to political parties, but denying to all others the liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. Unlike political parties, which evolve their policies and programs through public means, by the reconciliation of a wide variety of individual views, and submit those policies and programs to the electorate at large for approval or disapproval, the policies and programs of the Communist Party are secretly prescribed for it by the foreign leaders of the world Communist movement. Its members have no part in determining its goals, and are not permitted to voice dissent to party objectives. Unlike members of political parties, members of the Communist Party are recruited for indoctrination with respect to its objectives and methods, and are organized, instructed, and disciplined to carry into action slavishly the assignments given them by their hierarchical chieftains. Unlike political parties, the Communist Party acknowledges no constitutional or statutory limitations upon its conduct or upon that of its members. The Communist Party is relatively small numerically, and gives scant indication of capacity ever to attain its ends by lawful political means. The peril inherent in its operation arises not from its numbers, but from its failure to acknowledge any limitation as to the nature of its activities, and its dedication to the proposition that the present constitutional Government of the United States ultimately must be brought to ruin by any available means, including resort to force and violence. Holding that doctrine, its role as the agency of a hostile foreign power renders its existence a clear present and continuing danger to the security of the United States. It is the means whereby individual are seduced into the service of the world Communist movement, trained to do its bidding, and directed and controlled in the conspiratorial performance of their revolutionary services. Therefore, the Communist Party should be outlawed.

“The Communist Party of the United States, or any successors of such party regardless of the assumed name, whose object or purpose is to overthrow the Government of the United States, or the government of any State, Territory, District, or possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein by force and violence, are not entitled to any of the rights, privileges, and immunities attendant upon legal bodies created under the jurisdiction of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof; and whatever rights, privileges, and immunities which have heretofore been granted to said party or any subsidiary organization by reason of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof, are hereby terminated. . . .

“Whoever knowingly and willfully becomes or remains a member of (1) the Communist Party, or (2) any other organization having for one of its purposes or objectives the establishment, control conduct, seizure, or overthrow of the Government of the United States, or the government of any State or political subdivision thereof, by the use of force or violence, with knowledge of the purpose or objective of such organization shall be subject to all the provisions and penalties of the Internal Security Act of 1950, as amended, as a member of a “Communist-action” organization.

“For the purposes of this section, the term “Communist Party” means the organization now known as the Communist Party of the United States of America, the Communist Party of any State or subdivision thereof, and any unit or subdivision of any such organization, whether or not any change is hereafter made in the name thereof.”

Did you catch the difference between a normal political party and the Communist Party? Normal political parties operate democratically and submit their ideas to the American People for approval or disapproval. The Communist Party, by contrast, thumbs its nose at the voice of the People. Instead, it operates on the principle of strict obedience to the dictates of shadowy superiors whose intent is to come to power over the People.

The Communist Party also differs from other political parties in the fact that it cannot peacefully coexist with them. Democrats and Republicans may hate each other, but they tolerate each other’s existence and, ostensibly, defend each other’s right to exist – as well as the right of third parties and independents to share their views. The communists, on the other hand, deny that those whom they deem “class enemies” have any rights at all. They declare themselves alone to be sovereign. They reject the idea of pluralistic society and, instead, seek a total monopoly of political power. To communists, there can be only one voice, one sovereign, one party – the Communist Party.

After stating some of these basic facts, Congress then spelled out thirteen specific actions which would be used to determine one’s “membership or participation” in a prohibited communist organization. I mention only four. An individual who could be investigated and penalized under the CCA is one who has “prepared documents, pamphlets, leaflets, books, or any other type of publication in behalf of the objectives and purposes of the organization,” one who has “mailed, shipped, circulated, distributed, delivered, or in any other way sent or delivered to others material or propaganda of any kind in behalf of the organization,” one who has “indicated by word, action, conduct, writing or in any other way a willingness to carry out in any manner and to any degree the plans, designs, objectives, or purposes of the organization,” or one who has “made financial contribution to the organization in dues, assessments, loans, or in any other form.”

These four points alone are enough to identify and apprehend the communist traitors in our midst. Think of it, anyone who parrots The Communist Manifesto’s threats against free nations and free institutions could be rounded up and prosecuted. Anyone who preached the idea that a small clique of gangsters (i.e. the Communist Party and their abettors) should be in full control of the levers of power could be immediately silenced before he could sew the seeds of contention and civil war. Anyone who marched with authentic symbols of hate like the Soviet hammer and sickle flag, could quickly be identified as an enemy of the Republic. In short order, the subversive communist apparatus, both official and unofficial, could be crushed if we were to enforce the Communist Control Act.

Among other individuals, organizations, and publications that could be hauled in before the courts, prosecuted, or disbanded under the Communist Control Act, are the following:

  • George Soros
  • Jacob Rothschild
  • Bernie Sanders
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
  • Antifa
  • Black Lives Matter
  • New Black Panther Party
  • Congressional Progressive Caucus
  • Code Pink
  • Acorn
  • The Ford Foundation
  • The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
  • Open Society Foundations
  • Democratic Party
  • Communist Party USA
  • Revolutionary Communist Party USA
  • Socialist Party USA
  • Democratic Socialists of America
  • Party for Socialism and Liberation
  • World Socialist Party of the United States
  • Progressive Labor Party
  • Industrial Workers of the World
  • Fabian Society
  • Young Communist League USA
  • North American Man/Boy Love Association
  • Mattachine Society
  • Southern Poverty Law Center
  • ActBlue
  • Political Affairs (journal of the CPUSA)
  • People’s World (publication of the CPUSA)
  • Liberation News (news site of the Party for Socialism and Liberation)

Hundreds of other organizations could be added to the list and many thousands of individuals – including prominent politicians, judges, preachers, businessmen, reporters, actors, and educators – would find their rightful place there as well. The United States, to say nothing of the rest of the world, is infested by communists and their ideological comrades. Today’s gaggle of communist agitators will fulfill Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev’s threat to “bury” us if we do not swiftly move against them.

The Communist Control Act is a godsend to the patriot movement! We ought to invoke it immediately to provide for our “common defense” as a free People. In fact, we have an extensive body of anti-communist legislation to call upon to thwart the 21st-Century Reds who are well into the process of destroying our entire civilization.

The CCA was not the first or only anti-communist measure enacted by the U.S. government during the Cold War. The CCA was merely an amendment to the 1950 Internal Security Act, or, Subversive Activities Control Act. Whereas the Internal Security Act broadly targeted subversive organizations, the CCA directly singled out communist organizations, effectively prohibiting them. And the ISA itself was only a follow-up to the 1940 Alien Registration Act with its Smith Act provisions.

The Alien Registration Act required aliens to register with the government. It was popular at the time – and it is still popular today – for “political tourists” to visit the United States and engage in subversive behavior. Two groups in particular, Soviet communists and Jewish radicals from Europe, engaged in this type of criminal conduct. The Smith Act section of the Alien Registration Act targeted those who would fan the flames of sedition and revolution against the government. It read in part:

“It shall be unlawful for any person, with intent to interfere with, impair, or influence the loyalty, morale, or discipline of the military or naval forces of the United States. . . .

“It shall be unlawful for any person— (1) to knowingly or willfully advocate, abet, advise, or teach the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; (2) with the intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any government in the United States, to print, publish, edit, issue, circulate, sell, distribute, or publicly display any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence. (3) to organize or help to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any government in the United States by force or violence; or to be or become a member of, or affiliate with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof.”

The Smith Act also spoke against conspiracy. This provision was removed years later, but then added again in 1956, penalizing those who engage in conspiracy against the government with a $20,000 fine, twenty years in prison, or both. While the Smith Act seems perfectly reasonable to any patriotic American, portions of it were repealed in the 40s and 50s, and the activist Supreme Court began overturning convictions under its provisions in 1957, allowing violators to go free. Conspiracy, however, is still a crime listed on the books even today.

Numerous court cases variously upheld or undermined certain provisions of these acts. In Communist Party of the United States V. Subversive Activities Control Board in 1961, the CPUSA challenged the 1950 Subversive Activities Control Act. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Act, issuing their opinion that it did not violate the First Amendment to require the Communist Party to register with the Attorney General because the Party’s ideology, communism, was indeed a threat to the nation. As noted, other rulings were not as favorable. But those that were established the precedent that we could use today to enforce these laws to clamp down on the conspiratorial communist movement.

I mention one additional legislative act of peculiar interest to anyone wishing to see the Red Plague of communism swept away. The Emergency Detention Act of 1950 provided for the mass round-up of communists. Six government internment camps were created by the government in anticipation of holding the thousands of communist agitators who would be apprehended. Tragically, the Emergency Detention Act was never utilized and met its demise in September 1971. President Richard Nixon issued a statement when he signed the repeal of the Act, saying in part:

“No President has ever attempted to use the provisions of this act. And while six detention camps were established and funded by the Congress, none of them was ever used for the purposes of this legislation. In fact, all six camps have been abandoned or used for other purposes since 1957.

“Nevertheless, the mere continued existence of these legal provisions has aroused concern among many Americans that the act might someday be used to apprehend and detain citizens who hold unpopular views.”

That no president in the twenty-one years of the Act’s existence ever attempted to use it to round up and get rid of communist traitors and criminals is a biting indictment on those men, their advisors, and their supporters. Was not their sworn duty to defend the United States against its enemies and to ensure that Americans were secure in their rights? Americans cannot be secure in their God-given rights when communists are allowed to exist alongside them. The Constitution is not safe in a nation that permits communists to exist within its borders. Where communism is, Liberty can never fully shine.

Some believe that detention centers are inherently “unAmerican.” I disagree. When illegal invaders, drug cartel criminals, rapists, and thugs, storm across our Southern border, they are rounded up and placed in detention centers. This should be standard procedure for groups which threaten the nation. Remove them from the general population so they cannot do additional damage, then try them in court according to their crimes.

In 1776, General George Washington led the Continental Army on a campaign to disarm the Tories of Queens County, New York. Yes, George Washington confiscated New Yorkers’ firearms. And why not? It was a war, after all, and the Tories chose the opposing side – the side that advocated monarchy and subjugation to a ruling elite. It’s simply not repugnant to disarm or even arrest your avowed enemies in a time of conflict. And make no mistake, we are at war with the communists.

The great Ezra Taft Benson, who served as President Eisenhower’s Secretary of Agriculture at the time he signed the Communist Control Act into law, explained:

“Today we are at war. It is not enough to be against communism. We must shed our complacency and aggressively meet this challenge. . . .

“There can be no compromise with the communists. They are at war with us – with the entire cause of freedom, and the sooner every American faces this hard fact, the stronger our position will be. It is a real war. The lines are tightly drawn. The war is more insidious, more devious, more devastating, and more satanical than any war in our history. Moral principles, once universally recognized are ignored. International law once respected is thrown to the wind.

“The socialist-communist philosophy is devastatingly evil – destructive of all that is good, uplifting and beautiful. It strikes at the very foundation of all we hold dear” (Ezra Taft Benson, “We Must Become Alerted and Informed,” speech, December 13, 1963).

In his book An Enemy Hath Done This, Benson similarly warned Americans:

“Let’s get one thing straight at the very beginning. International communism is the self-avowed enemy of every loyal American. It has declared war against us and fully intends to win. The war in which we are engaged is total. Although its main battlefields are psychological, political and economic, it also encompasses revolution, violence, terror and limited military skirmishes. If we should lose this war, the conquering enemy’s wrath against our people and our institutions will result in one of the greatest blood-baths of all history. Call it a “cold war” if it makes you feel better, but our freedom and our very lives are the stakes of this contest” (Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, 165).

Author Fred Schwarz likewise admonished us to wake up to the fact that we are at war, regardless of whether we want to be, because the communists are at war with us, our institutions, and our way of life:

“[W]e are confronted with a movement which is frightening in its superb organization, strategic mobility and universal program, but which is perfectly understandable and almost mathematically predictable.

“In the battle against Communism, there is no substitute for accurate, specific knowledge. Ignorance is evil and paralytic. The best intentions allied with the most sincere motives are ineffective and futile if they are divorced from adequate knowledge. . . .

“[Communists] are extremely trustworthy. You can trust a cancer cell to obey the laws of its lawless growth. You can trust an armed bank robber to take the money and try to escape. Similarly, you can trust the Communists to act in accordance with the laws of their being. . . .

“The weapons of this warfare are not merely the classical weapons of guns, tanks, bombs, and aircraft. The weapons are universal. Education is a weapon; language is a weapon; trade is a weapon; diplomacy is a weapon; religion is a weapon; cultural interchange is a weapon. The Communists view every act and judge every situation as part of the class war. When the Bolshoi Ballet performs in the United States, that is an action in the class war; when a group of American clergymen visits Russia, that is an action in the class war; when the Soviet participates in negotiations for “peace,” they fight a battle in the class war. Their participation in the United Nations is part of this warfare. The basic Communist doctrine is: “We are at war!” This is the frame of reference within which every action and thought must be assessed and judged.

“It does not take two to make a fight. An idea in the mind of one is enough. . . .

“The Communists believe that they are at war with us. This conviction will never be changed in the slightest degree by any action in the Free World . . . We must either recognize this and defend against it, or ignore it and be destroyed. We have no other choice” (Fred Schwarz, You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists), 1-6).

 

I say again, there is nothing unAmerican about rounding up those who flout just laws, endanger public order, and commit themselves to overthrowing our Republic. Patriots in the 1940s and 50s realized the need to criminalize communism and outlaw the Communist Party. This they did by enacting the Smith Act in 1940, the Internal Safety Act and Emergency Detention Act of 1950, and the Communist Control Act of 1954. They put in the basic framework for sweeping action against the Red Menace, but, due to a coordinated campaign by communist agitators, their controlled press, and their powerful financial backers, were unable to gain enough popular support to put their anti-communist, pro-America plan into action and save the Republic from subversion.

In a hard-hitting sermon delivered in 1961, Ezra Taft Benson stated that the goal of communists is “to destroy the existing government and set up a ruthless criminal dictatorship over the whole land.” He further warned: “Unfortunately our nation has not treated the socialistic-communist conspiracy as “treasonable to our free institutions” . . . If we continue to uphold communism by not making it treasonable, our land shall be destroyed.”

Can anyone disagree with his assessment? Can anyone turn on the TV, watch as Seattle, Portland, Chicago, and other cities burn in communist-led riots, and then honestly disagree that communists must be dealt with by force? Communism is the enemy. Communism is treason. Communism must die for America to survive!

This Satanic enemy, like the fabled hydra, has many heads. It operates through an extensive network of front groups. They back the LGBT movement to corrupt our culture, destroy the family unit, and warp the minds of children. They promote public schooling so they can better indoctrinate children into the Marxist way of thinking. They use the Federal Reserve and the bloated bureaucracy to chip away at economic Freedom. They use taxation as a wealth redistribution scheme. They tell blacks they’re “victims,” pour salt in old wounds, and stoke the fires of racial disharmony. They target police, seek to limit their authority via citizen review boards, and use the courts to allow violent offenders and rioters to go free. They tell women that their place is in a nine-to-five job rather than in the home raising the next generation of citizens. They push for drug legalization as a means of desensitizing, degrading, and demoralizing our nation. They enact hate crime legislation which does nothing but criminalize points of view with which communists disagree. In these and a thousand other ways, the communist conspiracy has brought Lady Liberty to her knees.

The Communist Party USA, as the classic symbol of this conspiracy, must be first on the patriots’ chopping block. Not only has the Communist Party USA formally been outlawed, but it could readily be outlawed and its members penalized under any number of laws currently on the books. It is a clear and present danger to the United States because it operates as a wing of the worldwide communist conspiracy.

Louis Francis Budenz was a member of the CPUSA for ten years, during which time he helped edit the infamous Daily Worker. Budenz became disillusioned with the Party and woke up to its threatening nature. He wrote a book titled Men Without Faces: The Communist Conspiracy in the U.S.A., which I cannot recommend too highly. In the book’s introduction, he noted that it was his goal:

“to demonstrate that the Soviet dictatorship and its fifth column in this country constitute a clear and present danger to the existence of the United States.

“I want to show beyond question that the Communist party is not a political party in the American or democratic sense, but solely a fifth column of the Kremlin.”

Among other things, Budenz observed:

“Garbing itself in the attire of a regular political party, the Communist organization raises on behalf of its own legality the cry of those “civil liberties” which it officially declares it intends to abolish. The matter would be less confusing if the Red missionaries in the guise of liberals, radio commentators and trade unionists were not so successful in preventing Americans from learning the truth about their conspiratorial setup. The whole fictitious character of this “political party” claim could be easily exposed if it were established (as it can be) from Red documents and acts that the so-called Communist party is and has always been nothing other than one division of a dictator’s army with which he hopes to conquer the world” (Budenz, Men Without Faces, 29-30).

Yes, the Communist Party USA wears the mask of “democracy,” but instead promotes tyranny of the blackest type. It seeks to end the Constitution and decimate the rights we enjoy. Budenz further explained:

“The aim of this fifth column, and of the dictatorship manipulating it, is the violent destruction of the American Republic. It plans the conquest of the United States by setting up a world proletarian dictatorship guided and ruled by Joseph Stalin. As comfortable as it may have been in the past to evade that ugly reality, it can be evaded no longer. The fanatical hope, if you can call it that, which gives drive to these conspirators is the belief in “The World October.” This promised extension to the entire globe of the October Russian revolution which set up the Soviet dictatorship is the dynamo of the Communist movement. That whispered promise is on the lips of every obscure comrade; it is proudly proclaimed in every important speech and every fundamental book by ever leader of the Soviet state.

“In the first pamphlet on communism that I was given to study on entering the party, this pledge to wipe out the American government by fire and sword was stated in the most bloodthirsty terms. . . .

“It is disconcerting, then, to hear and read the extensive speculations of certain men in public life about what Soviet Russia means to do and what its fifth columns plan. The Reds have said so clearly what their reason for existence is, and have so scrupulously and relentlessly pursued the path set out for them, that such speculations would be absurd were they not so tragic.

“There is no greater tribute to the effectiveness of the Soviet fifth column in this country than the obvious fact that it has befogged the American mind regarding its ruthless resolves to wipe out American independence. Nothing is so clear-cut as its continual insistence within its own ranks that violent attack upon the government here is highly essential. But so skilled are its propagandists – disguised as non-Communists in the radio, newspaper and moving-picture world – that they have made Americans believe every revelation of Red espionage is the result of hysteria. They have done a fairly adequate job of making America ashamed of defending its own freedoms” (Budenz, Men Without Faces, 5, 7-8).

How very prescient! Today, in 2020, we see all around us hordes of rioters, Antifa thugs, and their cheerleaders in the media and Congress, who make themselves Red in the face yelling about how evil America is, how horrible our history is, and how ashamed we ought to be our of noble ancestors. This cacophony of dissent has cowed many Americans into sitting silently on the sidelines as their country is disgraced and destroyed in front of them. Many have been indoctrinated to believe that there is no communist threat and that anyone who says so is resurrecting the “Red Scare” and is probably a “Nazi,” “anti-Semite,” “fascist,” “klansman,” or “white supremacist.”

The cultural Marxists have successfully made millions of Americans ashamed to be Americans! What a tragedy! What a danger to our future! How can a nation survive when it hates itself? How can a nation project strength and oppose outward aggression when internally its people are twisted in confusion and self-loathing?

Fellow America, wake up! Your birthright is American Liberty. Your forebears were good, virtuous, patriotic men and women. Your institutions are unsurpassed in greatness and genius. You are descendants of the Sons of Liberty. Start acting like it.

Budenz concluded his landmark book by warning that a real defense of our Freedom means crushing the communist conspiracy. Said he:

“A true defense of civil liberties recognizes that the Communists mean to destroy such liberties. To safeguard American freedom the fifth column which menaces that freedom will have to be dealt with as a fifth column and not as something else – a legitimate political party, for example, which is pure fiction. . . .

“God grant that America may have the alertness to distinguish fact from fancy, the wisdom to understand the true nature of her Soviet opponent, and the courage to stand firm for her own defense and that of all mankind” (Budenz, Men Without Faces, 297).

Another Soviet defector, Yuri Bezmenov, similarly urged tough action against communist agitators. Bezmenov recommended curtailing the rights of seditious individuals and groups before they were able to foment a crisis that could only be reversed through bloodshed. He explained that there are four stages communists move a nation through before it can be considered conquered: 1) Demoralization; 2) Destabilization; 3) Crisis; and 4) Normalization. By the time things reach the destabilization stage, Bezmenov said that only restricting the rights of agitators can save a nation from military struggle:

“Now, at that point, at the point of destabilization, also the process could be reversed . . . You know what it takes here? Restriction of some liberties for small groups which are self-declared enemies of the society. As simple as that. “Oh no,” the media and liberals will tell you, “this is against the American Constitution” . . . Ok, if you allow the criminals to have civil rights, go on, and bring the country to the crisis. This is a bloodless way to do it: Curb the rights . . . It has to be beaten in the heads of American voters that a person like that in the seats of power is an enemy. Don’t be afraid of this word. It is an enemy . . . You are doing great service by denying him a right to capitalize on his own crazy ideas . . . Restrictions of certain Freedoms and permissions at that point would prevent sliding into crisis.”

As I’ve shown above, there is legal precedent for identifying, investigating, criminalizing, and even rounding up seditious groups. Specifically, the Communist Party and sworn Marxists have been singled out as seditious. It would be foolish to not use the Communist Control Act, or some variation thereof, to take down the communist network in America once and for all.

Let’s assume for a moment, however, that there was no Communist Control Act. Americans would still have the natural right to fight back against subversive elements in society. I refer to what Thomas Jefferson called the “laws of necessity.” In a letter, he explained why a patriot must sometime act on the authority of necessity rather than abide strictly by the written law:

“The question you propose, whether circumstances do not sometimes occur, which make it a duty in officers of high trust, to assume authorities beyond the law, is easy of solution in principle, but sometimes embarrassing in practice. A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means” (Thomas Jefferson to John B. Colvin, September 20, 1810).

The laws of necessity enjoin upon us, as freemen, as patriots, as Americans, to crush the communist conspiracy and all other ruthless criminal cliques seeking to overthrow our government, undermine our Constitution, and murder our Liberty. We cannot allow our children to march into Marxist servitude because we’re worried that the Bill of Rights protects free speech, for instance. By subscribing to the wicked ideology of communism, adherents become co-conspirators in a global plot to eviscerate Faith, Families, and Freedom. As adherents to this perverse totalitarian ideology, an ideology which has led to more death, rapine, and destruction than any other in world history, communists forfeit their political rights and privileges.

I call upon President Donald J. Trump and all other elected representatives of the American People to invoke and enforce the Communist Control Act, as well as the laws of necessity, to stamp out the communist conflagration spreading over the breadth of our land. We don’t have long if the blaze is allowed to burn out of control. We must act now. The Communist Party USA must be abolished and its members jailed, exiled, or executed, depending on the severity of their treason. Members of all other communist-socialist-oriented organizations, parties, publications, think tanks, and clubs must be penalized. It must be made a crime to openly promote the anti-American, anti-Constitution, anti-Freedom, anti-Family, anti-Christ conspiracy we call communism.

We must recognize that the real virus ripping through the world is communism. The Red Plague of Bolshevism is the devastating contagion we must identify, quarantine, and eradicate. We must immunize ourselves against this spiritual, economic, and political plague by fortifying our Faith, Families, and Freedom. We must educate our youth to hate communism and all forms of tyranny over the minds of free men and women. We must no longer tolerate or excuse ideologies that promote the oppression of peaceable people. We must no longer tolerate communism.

Say it with me, dear reader: Communism is treason! No one wants to talk this bluntly, but in a crisis, straight talk is mandatory. No one wants to call for their fellow human beings to be rounded up and penalized, but that’s the dire stage we’re at. If we are to survive, we must do what a small handful of other nations attempted to do in the 1930s and 40s – criminalize communism and mercilessly crush their conspiratorial network.

If America does not destroy the communist cancer eating away at her vitals, she will die. If we do not stand up like freemen to oppose this system of unrivaled darkness, oppression, slavery, rapine, plunder, deception, and mass murder, we deserve our fate. We must not let our families down. We must not betray our country’s legacy. We must not allow our communist enemies to destroy this, the greatest nation in human history.

Stand up, freeman! Rise, fellow patriot! Put on your armor and draw your sword. The deciding battle of our lives is upon us. This final struggle will decide everything. We must not slack. We must not fail. We must pledge to ourselves:

Communism must die for America to survive!

VIDEO REPORT: Obama, Biden and Hillary Conspired With Iran to Kill Entire SEAL Team 6

On Sunday, October the 11th, 2020, documents, and tapes along with audio were delivered to a U.S. Congressman along with several conventional media outlets demonstrating that President Obama, Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conspired and developed a sophisticated cover-up in the matter of Seal Team 6 and the purported killing of Osama Bin Laudon.

Furthermore, the $1.2 Billon dollar Obama sent to Iran was part of a black mail by Iran to Obama to keep the secret that Osama Bin Laudon was killed, when he was not! Furthermore…a sophisticated cover-up ensued to protect Obama, Biden, Clinton including involvement by the John McCain Foundation and the Clinton Foundation. Further participants include, but are not limited to: Leon Panetta, John Brennan, and the architect Hillary Clinton. These documents have been verified by several intelligence professionals along with a former high ranking U.S. General. The documents have been released yesterday to President Trump.

Justice Department seizes 92 Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps websites spreading pro-Biden propaganda

Remember the good old days when Obama showered billions on the Islamic Republic of Iran? The mullahs do, and want them back.

“U.S. Seizes 92 Websites Run by Iranian Intel Services,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, October 8, 2020:

The Department of Justice on Wednesday seized the domain names of 92 websites that it says Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was using to spread propaganda and disinformation to American audiences.

Iran and the IRGC used these websites to “spread propaganda covertly” and “sow discord” among the American public ahead of the 2020 presidential elections, according to John Demers, assistant attorney general for national security. Iran has spent great resources trying to influence the election in favor of Democratic challenger Joe Biden, and its operation of these websites violates U.S. sanctions.

At least four of these websites were set up to appear as news outlets. They were, however, actually controlled by the IRGC, Iran’s paramilitary fighting force responsible for conducting cyber operations on the Islamic Republic’s behalf. This behavior violates the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which mandates that foreign governments disclose their activities in the United States. Visitors to these websites will now only see a Department of Justice notice about the domain name seizure….

Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ is Bunk

Dems’ plans to import tens of millions of immigrant children prove it.


Despite the optimistic campaign slogan “Build Back Better,” in reality, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and their Radical Leftist political cohorts are waging a war against America and Americans because they know that For Dems to Succeed, Americans Must Fail.

Not unlike most politicians, Biden and Harris promise that if they are elected they will create tens of millions of high-paying jobs.

Of course they won’t tell you how they would create those jobs other than to make some vague statements about how the “Green New Deal” would create jobs as buildings, including houses, will have to be retrofitted to meet the new environmental standards that will be imposed on landlords across the U.S.

They never say who would pay for retrofitting those buildings or what would happen if the owners of the properties are unable to come up with the funding to modify their structures. (Would such property owners have the property confiscated by the Biden administration? No one is discussing this disturbing possibility.)

Meanwhile, Biden and Harris state that if elected they would defund the Border Patrol, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and decriminalize nearly every violation of our immigration laws including unlawful entry and re-entry and, presumably, immigration fraud.

Biden and Harris also insist, as did Hillary Clinton during her unsuccessful run for the Presidency inn 2016, that they would immediately create a massive legalization program for what they estimate are 11 million illegal aliens who are already present in the United States and place them on a path to U.S. citizenship.

That 11 million figure has been claimed by supposed journalists for more than a decade.

It has, however, been estimated that the number of illegal aliens who  could be a population of more than 25 millions illegal aliens.  I believe that even that number is much smaller than he actual number of aliens who would participate.  Back in 1985 the Reagan Amnesty that was part and parcel of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 was supposed to provide roughly one million illegal aliens with lawful status.  In reality the final number was between 3.5 million and 4 million.

I addressed this issue in my recent article, Comprehensive Immigration Reform Should be Renamed the “Overwhelm America Act” in which I noted that on September 21, 2018 Yale University reported Yale Study Finds Twice as Many Undocumented Immigrants as Previous Estimates.  That report, published just over two years ago noted:

Using mathematical modeling on a range of demographic and immigration operations data, the researchers estimate there are 22.1 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.

However, as large as the number of illegal aliens who would be eligible to participate in such an ill-conceived program, the ultimate number of aliens who would be provided with lawful status would, in reality, be a multiple of the number of illegal aliens who are present in the United States.

This is because each and every legalized alien would immediately have the absolute right to immediately petition to have their spouses and all of their minor children to be lawfully admitted to the United States.

Many families in Third World Countries have large numbers of children.  If, for argument sake 25 million illegal aliens were to participate in the Biden/Harris Amnesty and if the average alien has four children, we could witness an immediate influx of 100 million alien children enter the United States!

One of the key issues for the Radical Left is the environment.

Every person in the United States has an ecological and economic footprint.  Each person needs more than a place to sleep.  They all need water, food, electricity, sewerage, transportation and healthcare.

As roads and transportation and infrastructure become overwhelmed, traffic will grind to a halt while pollution from cars, busses and trucks spew into the atmosphere.  There are parts of the country that experience droughts and electrical brownouts.  How would this massive influx of immigrants impact these struggling systems?

These tens of millions of immigrant children will all need to attend schools in the United States.  In 2007, nearly 14 years ago, the Congressional Budget Office published a paper,  The Impact of Unauthorized Immigrants on the Budgets of State and Local Governments  That report estimated that there were about 12 million illegal aliens present in the United States at the time the report was published.  It also noted that it costs 20% to 40% more to educate children who lack English language proficiency.

How sustainable would this situation be?

Now consider that among the proposals for Biden/Harris is that everyone in the United Stats, regardless of immigration status would be entitled to free health care and free college education.

How would our government cover the huge expenses that this would cost?

How would hospitals be able to treat all of these people?  There are communities today that already lack adequate health care facilities and capabilities.  Imagine how long the waiting lines in emergency rooms would stretch as seriously ill patients from around the world would flood these emergency rooms.

Add to this is Biden and Harris’ stated goal of creating immigration anarchy, with the promise of free health care would turn our entire country into the world’s ER!

America would become a magnate for the world’s sick.  Our immigration laws make no distinction about race, religion or ethnicity.

8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens enumerates the categories of aliens who are to be excluded. Among these classes of aliens who are to be prevented from entering the United States are aliens who suffer from dangerous communicable, diseases or extreme mental illness.

Additionally, convicted felons, human rights violators, war criminals, terrorists and spies are to be excluded as well as aliens who would seek unlawful employment thus displacing American workers or driving down the wages of American workers who are similarly employed and aliens who would likely become public charges.

Without enforcement the concerns about the entry of aliens with dangerous communicable diseases will go unaddressed.  Aliens from around the world who suffer from such dangerous communicable diseases would head for the United States to seek free treatment.

This could and would likely lead to multiple epidemics of dangerous diseases in the United States.

Hasn’t the COVID-19 Pandemic from China taught Biden or Harris anything?

The loss of secure borders that would result from the Biden/Harris immigration policies would leave America vulnerable to narcotics, transnational gangs and terrorists.  The 9/11 Commission. to which I provided testimony, identified multiple failures of the immigration system as being directly responsible for the ability of terrorists, and not only 9/11 hijacker terrorists, to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations.

Under the massive Biden/Harris amnesty program, national security would be irreparably undermined.  Because of the huge number of illegal aliens who could apply for lawful status, in-person interviews could not be conducted and field investigation would be out of the question.  Adjudications officers would have to make quick decisions based nearly entirely on the information provided in the applications for legalization.  This program would suffer from massive fraud and the 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, identified immigration fraud as the key method of entry and embedding for international terrorists.  This issue was the predication and my focus in my extensive article, Immigration Fraud: Lies That Kill.

The obvious question that has never been asked of candidates for the President or other significant elected offices since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 is, “Have you read the 9/11 Commission Report and the companion report that was prepared by the 9/11 Commission staff, 9/11 and Terrorist Travel?

Recently we have seen where the weapon of choice for terrorists is not airliners but motor vehicles.  Yet Democrat-run states such as New York State not only provides illegal aliens with driver’s licenses, but New York State Blocks ICE and Border Patrol Access to DMV Database.

Finally, let us go back to the issue of those amazing jobs Mr. Biden claims he would provide for millions of struggling Americans.   In some of his campaign ads Biden speaks so wistfully about his father telling him when he was a boy that jobs not only provide money but dignity and a sense of purpose.

Of course that statement about the significance of jobs is accurate.  Extremely accurate.

However- with no secure borders and a massive influx of tens of millions of immigrant children who will quickly become adults and flood the labor pool, the Biden/Harris immigration policies would drive down wages and force hapless Americans to compete with tens of millions of foreign born workers for those ever so important jobs.

Barack Obama promised “shovel ready jobs” and now Biden has come up with a “shovel ready” job, shoveling the BS that he and Kamala spew when they make promises that are nothing but bald-faced lies that would irrevocably alter America- and not for the better!

Trump’s Feds save Gov. Witmer (D-MI) from kidnaping, Witmer blames POTUS for Attack?

This is getting into the realm of the Twilight Zone. Democrat Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer was saved from a plot by anarchist terrorists to kidnap her. This plot was led by anarchist Brandon Caserta a ringleader of the group.

QUESTION: Why would anarchist Brandon Caserta want to kidnap Democrat Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer?

ANSWER: Because he and his fellow anarchists believe that Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer is a tyrant!

Here’s a video Caserta posted on YouTube with the anarchist flag in the background.

President Trump tweeted this about the arrest of members of the anarchist group led by Caserta.

Caserta in the below video says the following about President Trump:

“Trump is not your friend dude” Trump is “a tyrant” and “enemy”.

WATCH:

Then Governor Witmer blames President Trump for the plot to kidnap her.

WATCH:

CONCLUSION

Democrat Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer is a tyrant. The Supreme Court of Michigan has overturned her draconian emergency powers. Witmer has ignored the Michigan Supreme Court. Therefore, she is a tyrant.

This blame Trump game is getting very old and zeros out any credibility the Democrats have ever had.

‘Infidel’: At Last, a Film That Deals Realistically with Islamic Terrorism

It is a staple of the Muslim victimhood industry to complain that Hollywood frequently features Muslim terrorist villains, and seldom depicts Muslims as anything other than terrorists. Reality is just the opposite: can you think of even one major motion picture that featured Islamic terrorists as the villains? In a typical instance, Tom Clancy’s The Sum of All Fears, jihadis were the villains, but when the book was made into a movie, the villains were changed to neo-Nazis. Moviemakers routinely shy away from depicting the grim reality of jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others. But not Cyrus Nowrasteh.

Nowrasteh, who gave us the eye-opening and heart-rending 2009 film The Stoning of Soraya M., which focused on an honor killing, has written, directed, and produced the new movie Infidel, starring Jim Caviezel, Claudia Karvan, and Hal Ozsan. Infidel is as startling, on many levels, as it is gripping. Caviezel plays a Christian blogger who is kidnapped by a Hizballah cell (headed up by a cheerfully villainous and thoroughly engaging Ozsan) and taken to Iran.

That this is the storyline is in itself remarkable. Were Infidel the production of virtually any director besides Nowrasteh, Caviezel’s Christian character Doug Rawlins would turn out to be stupid, evil, or both, while Ozsan’s Ramzi, even while being a Hizballah kidnapper, would be depicted as wise, noble, or even heroic. Muslims are victims of Islamophobic, racist, redneck American yahoos — that’s the general Hollywood narrative, played out in innumerable films.

Infidel instead opts to be more realistic, recalling actual events that seldom gain Hollywood’s notice, such as the 1987 kidnapping of journalist Charles Glass by Hizballah in Lebanon. Infidel unflinchingly portrays the gleeful brutality and inhumanity of Rawlins’ captors, as well as his own struggles to maintain his Christian faith amid torture and isolation. Amid all this, the film’s realism is thoroughgoing: once the movie’s perspective was established, it was refreshing to see Caviezel portray Rawlins as alternately angry, afraid, and confused, rather than as a plaster saint, above the fray and singing hymns even as he is being beaten and verbally abused.

Nor is that all. Besides being one of the few feature films to portray the reality of jihad terror in a realistic manner, Infidel is also one of the first, if not the first, major motion pictures to depict the pervasive but seldom-noticed reality of secret Christians in majority-Muslim countries, as well as the Sharia death penalty for leaving Islam, honor killings, and even the “Islamophobia” scam. Early in the movie, before Rawlins has left the U.S. and been kidnapped, investigators are searching the home of Javid, a Muslim friend of Rawlins. They find that Javid’s basement is filled with unmistakable evidence that he is a jihad terrorist, or at very least a terrorist sympathizer.  All the while, however, a lawyer does her best to impede the search, proclaiming that it is “Islamophobia” to think that anything is amiss with Javid at all.

That is a recurring reality of life in America today: for years now it has been routine that any honest examination of jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and any effort to impede it, is “Islamophobic” and hence to be eschewed by all decent people. Up to now, the closest movies got to this phenomenon was their producers’ own fear of being tarred with the “Islamophobic” label if they got too close to depicting jihad violence in an accurate manner, or at very least without some kind of assurance to the audience that Islam is really not like that, but gentle, peaceful, and altogether benign. For a film to show how the “Islamophobia” weapon is actually wielded in order to stymie counterterror efforts is nothing short of astonishing.

But Infidel is much more than the sum of the topics that are usually ignored or obfuscated, and that it dares to depict. Infidel is, above all, a terrific story, well-acted and superbly presented – a story of love, of passion, of hatred, of commitment, of self-sacrifice, and much more. I would have written that they don’t make them like this anymore, but clearly, as long as Cyrus Nowrasteh is writing, directing, and producing movies, they still do.

Tens of Thousands of Cases of Possible Vote Fraud Cited in New Report

One of the constant refrains from those who oppose election reforms designed to protect the security and integrity of the voting process is that serious vote fraud is a myth.

But as a shocking new report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation shows, those naysayers could not be more wrong.

The foundation’s report, “Critical Condition,” highlights the severity of the problem: inaccurate voter rolls, duplicate registrations, dead voters, and incomplete registrations—all of which allow fraud by those willing to exploit vulnerabilities in the system.

The foundation discovered more than 140,000 instances of potential election fraud in the 2016 and 2018 elections, ranging from individuals illegally voting in multiple states to someone voting in the name of a deceased person.


How are socialists deluding a whole generation? Learn more now >>


The Public Interest Legal Foundation created the type of database that President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity wanted to create, but was prevented from doing so by numerous frivolous lawsuits filed by the left.

Many state governors and election officials also refused to provide data to the commission, which is why it was shut down before it could even do any research.

The foundation obtained voter registration and voter history data from 42 states. It had to sue three states—Illinois, Maine, and Maryland—to get what is supposed to be public information after they refused to comply with their own laws.

All of this information was put into the Safeguarding America’s Votes and Elections database. It was then supplemented with information from other commercial and government data sources, such as credit agencies, obituaries, and the Social Security Death Index.

By supplementing the voter registration information, the Public Interest Legal Foundation was able to sift out as many “false positives” as possible.

A false positive in data comparisons occurs when two different individuals have the same name and birthdate. For example, “John James Smith” born July 4, 1976, appearing on two state voter registration lists may actually be two different people.

By leveraging other identifying information, such as commercial data, Social Security numbers, and credit address histories, one can eliminate most, if not all, false positives that have plagued prior reports from other entities.

The foundation now has what it says is “the best platform ever constructed to analyze the health of voter rolls and catalog potential vote fraud vulnerabilities.”

So, what did the Public Interest Legal Foundation uncover?

There are currently 349,773 deceased registrants on the voter rolls in 41 states. The worst states in this regard are Michigan, Florida, New York, Texas, and California, which account for roughly 51% of the dead voters who are still mistakenly registered.

Even worse, state records show that 7,890 of these deceased voters cast ballots from the grave in the 2016 presidential election and 6,718 did so in the 2018 congressional elections.

If that weren’t bad enough, the foundation also found that:

  • 8,360 individuals registered and voted in two different states during the 2018 election.
  • 43,760 individuals were registered more than once at the same address and cast second votes in the 2016 election, while 37,889 individuals appeared to have voted twice from the same registration address in 2018. (Thousands of these apparent double votes were exclusively mail-in ballots.)
  • 5,500 voters cast ballots twice in the same state from two different registration addresses in 2018.
  • 34,000 voters appeared to have used nonresidential, commercial addresses—such as gas stations, casinos, and restaurants—to register to vote.

That last problem—registering at a commercial address—is a serious issue. In fact, Rep. Steve Watkins, R-Kan., was charged with election fraud in July for claiming a UPS store as his residence when he registered to vote, and then voting in a 2019 municipal election in Topeka, Kansas.

In 2018, the foundation’s research found that 17 ballots were cast from a self-storage facility in Compton, California, and four ballots were cast from the NPR headquarters in Culver City, California.

The Heritage Election Fraud Database of almost 1,300 proven cases of fraud is just a sampling and not a comprehensive list of election fraud cases. As we note, it “does not capture reported instances that are not investigated or prosecuted.” Those reported cases are likely just the tip of the iceberg.

As the Public Interest Legal Foundation’s report shows, there are 144,117 other potential cases of election fraud, just from the last two federal elections. These should be investigated by election officials and prosecuted by law enforcement officials if the information it uncovered is correct.

Downplaying the risks and vulnerabilities for fraud in the current system only exacerbates existing problems and compromises the most sacred right a free people have.

As the Heritage Election Fraud Database and the latest Public Interest Legal Foundation report show, the threat of vote fraud is real—and it could make a difference in a close election.

How are socialists deluding a whole generation? One of their most effective arguments is that “democratic socialism” is working in Scandinavian countries like Sweden and Norway. They claim these countries are “proof” that socialism will work for America. But they’re wrong. And it’s easy to explain why.

Trump Admin Begins to Get Tough on Communists Immigrating to U.S.

And, apparently there is no need to change a single law.

Here is the story from the Epoch Times (hat tip: Judy):

Trump Administration Signals Tougher Action to Bar Communist Party Members From Immigrating to US

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on Friday published a policy alert about banning members of the communist party or any other totalitarian party from getting an immigrant visa.

“In general, unless otherwise exempt, any intending immigrant who is a member or affiliate of the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States,” USCIS said in a policy alert.

This is data from 2013, but the article is very useful because it includes this line: “In 2000, 22,000 visas were issued to Chinese nationals in the US; in 2012, that number jumped to 189,000. Bush was already permitting a huge flow from China when Obama really threw open the flood gates.

People with membership or affiliation with the communist party or other totalitarian parties are inconsistent and incompatible with the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America, which includes pledging to “support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States,” the agency said in a statement.

The policy alert didn’t announce any new immigration policy but suggests the Trump administration may take tougher action to enforce related policies.

USCIS explained in its Policy Manual that the policy is based on a series of laws passed by Congress between World War I and the 1950s. Those laws state that any alien who is or has been a member or affiliate of a Communist or any other totalitarian party are “inadmissible” for immigration into the United States.

[….]

As the biggest communist party in the world, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members are expected to be affected most by the new policy.

More here.

Of course there are exceptions and people trying to get into the US will lie, but even taking this position signals where this administration is on the spread of communism.

Biden’s Bizarre Claim: ‘Antifa Is an Idea, Not an Organization’

During Tuesday night’s presidential debate, Democrat nominee Joe Biden made the eyebrow-raising declaration that the domestic terror group Antifa “is an idea, not an organization.” Who knew ideas could wreak so much violent destruction all on their own?

Biden’s claim was made after moderator Chris Wallace warned of “white supremacist” groups contributing to violence and social unrest. “Almost everything I’ve seen is from the left wing, not the right wing,” Trump correctly noted. “Somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left, because this is not a right-wing problem,” he added about the ongoing riots driven by leftist entities such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter. “This is a left-wing problem.”

Biden then paraphrased FBI Director Chris Wray’s recent characterization of Antifa as more of an “ideology” than an organization, presumably because its leadership is decentralized and the group has no office locations or business cards. “That’s what his FBI director said,” stated Biden, pointing at Trump.

“Antifa is an organization, not an idea,” replied Trump. “Antifa is a dangerous, radical group, and you better be careful with them. They’ll overthrow you.” Quite true. Why is Biden defending this violent terror organization?

“I am not sad that a fu**ing fascist died tonight”

On the night of August 29, 2020 in Portland, Oregon, a male Antifa member shot and killed a young man, Aaron Danielson, who was wearing a hat that bore the name of the pro-Trump conservative organization Patriot Prayer. When he first noticed Danielson, the gunman said: “Hey! Hey, we got one right here! We got a Trumper right here!” — and then shot him. Later that night, a female Antifa member used a bullhorn to address a large crowd of Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters and said, to cheers and laughter from the mob:

  • “And tonight, I just got word that the person who died was a Patriot Prayer Trump person. He was a fucking Nazi! Our community held its own and took out the trash. I am not going to shed any tears over a Nazi.”
  • “I am not sad that a fucking fascist died tonight. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. If y’all are not with me, y’all are not paying attention. Everybody needs to realize what’s going on in these streets. Our community can hold its own without the police. We can take out the trash [i.e., conservative ‘fascists’] on our own.”

Surge in Illegal Immigrants Smuggled into U.S. Packed in Commercial Tractor-Trailers

As COVID-19 ravages Latin America—especially Mexico—a record number of illegal immigrants are being smuggled into the United States through the southern border in commercial tractor-trailers. Human smugglers cram the migrants, mostly from Central America, in large trailers with no ventilation, water or food for days, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. “The tractor-trailer is the final trap of their 1,600 mile treacherous journey from Central America to the United States,” the agency writes in a statement issued this month. “Migrants are exposed to these dangers by smugglers who know the life-threatening journey will be in vain given increased border enforcement and partnerships with affected governments.”

The frontline Homeland Security agency says two Texas border crossings that are typically hot spots for tractor-trailers loaded with migrants have seen a 37% increase this fiscal year. The sectors, Rio Grande Valley and Laredo, have intercepted more than 226 tractor-trailer cases through August with 3,740 illegal immigrants packed in “dangerous and life threating conditions.” Federal authorities estimate that travel restrictions designed to stop the spread of COVID-19 have made commercial tractor-trailers the “conveyance of choice to smuggle large numbers of people into the United States.” Smugglers usually charge each person between $6,000 and $12,000 to make the life-threatening journey in a jam-packed trailer, according to the Border Patrol. “Smugglers are unscrupulous criminals and will stop at nothing to enrich their pockets, even if it involves locking human beings in trailers intended for animals,” said Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark A. Morgan. “They treat illegal aliens as a commodity, inhumanely holding them captive in overcrowded stash houses with limited access to food and water.”

Federal agents often find human remains or encounter lost migrants abandoned by smugglers when they become sick or injured. Smuggling operations are run by drug cartels and other criminal enterprises, federal authorities assure. They undoubtedly increase the risk of COVID-19 infection among illegal aliens and those charged with processing them, the Border Patrol points out. The agency provides a gripping video testimonial of a young Central American mother who describes the horrific conditions in tractor-trailer boxes where breathing is difficult and sexual abuse rampant. Though her identity is protected, Homeland Security officials say the woman is the voice of thousands of Central American migrants, including unaccompanied children that have endured a “myriad of atrocities,” including sexual abuse, assault and kidnapping by the criminals they pay to bring them to the U.S.

The Border Patrol also provides a grisly photo of a livestock trailer loaded with illegal immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. The large pickup truck pulling the trailer was stopped at the Laredo crossing with 37 individuals locked inside “with no means of escape.” The dehumanizing picture shows some of the migrants’ arms hanging out of the top rails of a vehicle designed to transport animals. Others are captured trying to peek through the thin cracks. Two other photos capture a bust of 66 individuals jammed inside the trailer and cabin of a big rig and another with 35 illegal aliens. In a message to those considering a tractor-trailer odyssey north, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warns not to trust human smugglers. “Do not endanger your lives and the lives of your loved ones by embarking on the dangerous journey to the United States in vain.” Based on the evidence gathered by his agency, Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott assures that smugglers “have no regard for human life.”

The newly released stats are particularly alarming considering that Latin America leads the world in COVID-19 cases, according to an international news conglomerate that reports a surge of infections in Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Argentina. The United Nations calls Latin America a hotspot of the COVID-19 pandemic, “exacerbated by weak social protection, fragmented health systems and profound inequalities.” Other reports describe Latin America as a COVID-19 nightmare and the world’s hardest hit region. The U.S. government considers COVID-19 risk in Mexico to be high and has issued a warning to American travelers of “increased risk for severe illness.”
