ACT for America: Strike Three, You’re Out!

This is my final report on ACT and Brigitte Gabriel. The 2030 hours conference on 1 Mar 2017 call with Brigitte at the helm was basically about me and how I have been exposing her faults (as told to me by numerous ACT Chapter leaders). Again I offered Brigitte or J. Craig to contact me and discuss issues before I published this piece but again no comment.

Per the ACT Chapter leaders:

  1. There were only about 50 chapter leaders on the call hosted by Brigitte out of an alleged 1000 chapter leaders (hum…) Either they don’t care or there are way fewer chapter leaders than reported.
  2. Brigitte strongly stated “Islam is dangerous and evil and she has never said Islam is peaceful and been hijacked. I strongly ask readers to find anywhere in which Brigitte call the whole of Islam evil.
  3.  Brigitte said the mosques in America are breeding grounds for terrorists and used my project ‘Mapping Sharia’ that revealed over 70% have violent materials and dangerous.
  4.  Brigitte kept saying she knew enemies of ACT are recording her call to the chapter leaders. I say so what, just give the honest truth about the message that ACT is putting out and then repeat it in public. Why not Brigitte?
  5.  Many of the chapter leaders were upset that Roy White was fired and Brigitte he would never be reinstated. I bet next conference call will have even less than 50.

Brigitte, I love you girl and have always respected you because I thought you informed everyone how Islam is a disease and cancer, then I find out it is all hot air. I challenge you to publicly tell the world that Islam the ideology is like a cancer, is evil and is dangerous. Also state that over 70% of mosques in America (of the 3000) are breeding grounds for terrorists as you stated on the conference call. My dear Brigitte you can have it both ways. Either Islam is satanic, evil, and dangerous and Americas number one enemy or as you say it is a religion of peace and has been hijacked. Which one? We all want to know.

Brigitte please clear up the following. Tell us why the American public especially your chapter leaders should pay for your Hollywood lifestyle. A very trusted friend provided the below information.

  • Gabriel lives in a $3 million, 10,000 sq ft home in Virginia Beach. The house was paid for on the backs of the grassroots donors.
  • Guy Rogers her former Executive Director went to attorney Greg Bergethon and complained that Brigitte was taking too much cash out of the organization for personal purposes  – e.g. for the mansion, and she was paying off her ex-husband.

Russian Bear Bites Schumer and Pelosi — President Trump calls for Investigation

There are lies, damn lies and politics. In our column “The DNC has been planning to play the Russia Card since April, 2016” we noted:

A leaked Democratic National Committee email shows that this strategy of blame it on Russia was planned and is now being executed with the help of the legacy media.

Here is the email stating, “[T]he pro-Russia stuff ties in pretty well to the idea that Trump is too friendly with Putin/weak on Russia”:

dnc-leaked-email-russia

It seems Democrats have overplayed the Russian card and it has come back to bite them on their collectivist derrieres.

Here is a photo of Sergey Kislyak, Russian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, sitting with Democrats during President Trump’s February speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress:

Once you use a certain politically motivated tactic, like meeting with any Russian official for any reason, people begin a Google search for stories and photos and found Democrats cozening up to the Russians. Well, citizens have discovered multiple cases in which Democrats are meeting with key Russians including Senator Chuck Schumer enjoying donuts with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Representative Nancy Pelosi dining with the Russian ambassador.

Missing from this list is Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who Brit Hume saw eating lunch with the Russian Ambassador

Breitbart reports:

A photo published on the Politico website shows House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2010 — a direct contradiction to her telling reporters at the website she had not met with the diplomat.

After tweeting on Friday morning that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) should be investigated for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2003, President Donald Trump tweeted that a second investigation into Pelosi’s past should be launched.

I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.

Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 3, 2017

“I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it,” Trump tweeted on Friday.

“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi told Politico’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer during a Playbook interview, when asked if she’d ever met with the Russian envoy.

“But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House Speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.),” Politico reported. “Medvedev had been in the country for a meeting with President Barack Obama a day earlier and stopped in on Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders as well.

President Trump tweeted:

But it gets worse. It appears that 30 Democrat members of Congress met with Russian operatives. Topic of discussion? The Iran nuclear deal.

Kerry Picket from The Daily Caller reports:

The Huffington Post reported in early August 2015, Senate Democratic staff invited three undecided Democrats on the Iran nuclear deal Democrats along with other members of their caucus to meet with the ambassadors of Russia, England, France, China and Germany in the capitol.

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, according to HuffPo, organized the Iran nuclear deal briefings for his Democratic colleagues that included meeting the ambassadors.

The presentations were strong enough to convince the three undecideds to come around and overcome a Republican filibuster of the Iran deal.

“Thirty members, as a matter of fact, of this body met with the Russian Ambassador and ambassadors from other nations in 2015 for a sales pitch on President Obama’s deal with Iran. Many of them — including the senior senator from Missouri [Claire McCaskill] — were open supporters at that time of candidates in the presidential race,” he [Senator David Perdue (R-GA)] said.

There are lies, damn lies and then there is fakestream news.

Fakestream news is the new propaganda spewed by the media for a political end, in this case to discredit the Trump administration.

So much for working together and giving Mr. Trump a chance to govern.

Views on Radical Islam: An interview with Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to the President

The Trump Administration spearhead of the ideological war against Radical Islamic Jihadism is Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to President Trump and member of the White House Strategic Initiatives Group. He has recently surfaced as spokesperson for the Administration on this and related issues and been the subject of a number of media reports. We had prior knowledge of his views on Radical Islamic jihadism from our New English Review book review and interviews prior to his involvement in the Trump transition team.  Subsequently, following the President’s election he was selected to serve in the Executive Office of the President.  We were afforded an opportunity to interview him on a wide range of current issues on Northwest Florida’s Talk Radio 1330 AMWEBY.  The program aired February 28, 2017.

Among the following national security and foreign policy issues addressed in the 1330amWEBY interview with Dr. Gorka were:

  1. Why the Trump Administration is concerned about the threat from radical Islamic Jihadism?
  2. Who are the ‘self-styled’ counterterrorism experts criticizing the Administration for exposing the ideology behind Radical Islamic Jihadism?
  3. The dangerous threat of Iran’s nuclear and missile development, state support for global terrorism and hegemonic aspirations in the Middle East.
  4. Importance of Israel, Jordan, Egypt as allies in support of US national security interests in the Middle East.
  5. Possible formation of a NATO-type regional military alliance composed of Sunni Arab Monarchies, Emirates and states with possible links to Israel.
  6. Administration views on Turkey and the Kurds in the war to defeat ISIS.
  7. Global spread of Radical Islamic Jihad especially in Sudan, Nigeria, Niger and Mali in Africa.

What follows is the interview with Dr. Gorka:

Mike Bates: Good afternoon welcome back to Your Turn. This is Mike Bates. With me in the studio Jerry Gordon is the Senior Editor of the New English Review and its blog The Iconoclast and joining us by telephone Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to the President in the strategic initiatives group. Dr. Gorka, welcome.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka: Thank you for having me.

Bates: Dr. Gorka, you have been criticized significantly by so-called counter-terrorism experts for concentrating on addressing the ideology behind radical Islamic terrorism. Is there any merit to that criticism at all?

Gorka: It’s quite ironic that the individuals that have written these recent critiques are in many cases the people who are responsible for the last eight years of Obama administration policies. That completely ignored the ideological component of groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda and simply resulted in the atrocious situation we have today with ISIS declaring a caliphate of remarkable affiliates across the globe and with attack after attack occurring not only in America but especially in Europe. So the fact is denying the reality of what your enemy believes makes it very difficult to stop them recruiting new terrorists in the future. That’s my bottom line.

Bates: So how are you advising the Trump administration concerning the threat from radical Islamic terrorism?

Gorka: The President, even before he became the Commander in Chief, was very clear on these issues so we are just continuing the work of the presidential campaign. If your listeners look at a very important speech that wasn’t paid adequate attention to it, the Presidents’ Youngstown speech which was very clear on the ideological components of this war. Then we have the inauguration which was very specific, his fifteen minute speech that talked about the radical Islamic terrorist threat the phrase of your former President denied and refused to use.  Then we had  last Friday his address to CPAC which was just as strenuous and talked about obliterating the threat and wiping them from the face of the earth.  Our belief is that this is a war against individual organizations like ISIS. However, in the long term it is really a counter-ideological fight that has to resolve finally in the delegtimization of the religious ideology that drives groups like ISIS.

Jerry Gorda: Dr. Gorka, speaking about obliterating ISIS what changes might we expect in administration policies towards the Kurds in the war to defeat ISIS and the resolution to the conflict in Syria?

Gorka: Unlike previous administrations we don’t give our playbook away in advance. We don’t talk about the specifics of our war plan. However, the President has been clear that whether it’s the Kurds or whether it’s others in the region America is not interested in invading other peoples’ countries; that’s un-American. Our nation was born in a rejection of imperialism not the colonization or occupation of other countries.  Whether it is the Kurds or local Sunnis or the forces of Iraq, we are interested in helping our partners in the region win their wars for themselves. It’s not about American troops being deployed in large numbers, it’s about helping those Muslim nations and forces in the Middle East who want to be our friends help them win their battles for themselves.

Bates: Well speaking about them winning the battles for themselves there have been some news reports about some administration discussions about the possible formation of a NATO type regional military alliance in the Middle East. Is there anything developing there?

Gorka: Again we are going to keep our powder dry and we are not going to give away our game plans in advance. The bottom line is not the labels or not what we wish to package things into. The issue is the local actors stepping up to the plate with our assistance to fight their backyard war.  I mean it’s not, Christians who have been decimated, Yazidis have been decimated but by far the largest number of victims of the jihadist groups are their fellow Muslims. They are not just the Shia who they deem to be heretics but in many parts of Iraq and Syria and elsewhere the ISIS forces, the related groups are killing other Sunnis that they disagree with.  Whatever the coalition it will be very different from the smoke and mirrors coalition that was created under the Obama years which really wasn’t a serious force.

Gordon: Dr. Gorka, how dangerous is the threat of Iran’s nuclear and missile development, state support for global terrorism and hegemonic aspirations in the Middle East?

 Gorka: That’s a question that could have a PhD dissertation level response. Let’s just talk about the facts. We know Iran according to the U.S. Government is a state-sponsored terrorism, the largest state-sponsor of terrorism. It is not doing this recently it has been doing this since 1979 whether it is from the Iranian hostage siege crisis all the way down.  This is a nation that I like to depict as an anti-status quo actor. This is a nation that doesn’t share basic interests with the normal values of the international community. They are not interested. If you are a theocratic regime that wishes to forcibly and subversively export  your theocratic vision around the world what is the common interest you could have with America or with any of our allies? That’s the false premise upon which U.S. Iran relations were based in the last eight years and the idea that a nation that has that destabilizing ideology wishes to acquire weapons of mass destruction including nuclear capability means that they do represent a threat to all nations that believe in a global stability.

Gordon: Dr. Gorka, how important is Israel as an ally in support of U.S. National Security interests in the Middle East versus resolution of the impasse with the Palestinians?

Gorka: There is no greater partner of the United States in the Middle East. We are very close and we help the Jordanians, Egypt, UAE  redressing and improving the very  negative relationship that was established between the White House under the Obama administration and Egyptian President Sisi’s government. Israel, as a beacon of democracy and stability in the Middle East, is our closest friend in the region and the President has been explicit in that again and again So it would be difficult  to overestimate just how important Israel is not only to America’s interest in the region but also to the broader stability of the Middle East.

Bates: And what kind of role do you foresee for Turkey?

Gorka: I think that is in many ways up to Ankara. Historically, after it’s accession to NATO, Turkey became one of the most important nations in the alliance. It had the largest army in Europe. As a result of its location it was highly important during the Cold War geo-strategically. Recent events with an emphasis to rising fundamentalist attitudes have questioned the future trajectory of Turkey. The administration and the President is clear that it wishes to be a friend to those who wish to be our friends.  I think you know any good relationship depends upon both parties willingness to work together. We would like to continue a fruitful relationship with Turkey but that depends upon the government in Ankara itself.

Gordon: Dr. Gorka, the Obama administration lifted sanctions against the Islamic Republic of the Sudan on the cusp of leaving office. This despite evidence that the regime of President Bashir is raising a terrorist army literally to foment jihad in the Sahel region of Africa. What remedies might the administration consider to combat this?

Gorka: Again you are trying to tease out very concrete policy prescriptions from us and I’m really not prepared to do that at this point. Remember we are in week six of the administration.  However, we do recognize and we are very serious about the fact that of what I call the global jihadi movement isn’t just an issue in the Middle East. We like to focus on the so-called five meter target. It was Al Qaeda for a decade then it morphed into the Islamic state or ISIS.  There are large swaths of territory in Africa that are unstable, are not sovereign in the sense that the local government exercises full control over them. The mere fact alone if you look at Nigeria, the Boko Haram, the black African jihadi group has sworn allegiance to ISIS and Ab? Bakr al-Baghdadi and has been incorporated into the Islamic state, changed its name to the West African Province of the Islamic state. That shows you just how serious the situation is.  Jihadism truly spreads from whether it’s Aleppo, whether it’s Raqqa, whether it’s Africa, Mali, Nigeria or to the streets of Brussels or San Bernardino. We fully appreciate just how global the threat is and that includes Africa as well.

Bates: Dr. Gorka, it obviously includes the United States as well.  One of President Trump’s very first executive orders had to do with the restriction of entry into the United States from people from seven countries. The administration was criticized by the Democrats and the media, my apologies for being redundant there.  However, if you look at the numbers of those seven affected countries, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria and Yemen,  have a combined population of  220 million people and there is a global Muslim population of 1.6 billion.  That means that 86 percent of Muslims in the world are not prevented from entering the United States and yet it was portrayed as a Muslim ban. How does the administration intend to come out with a revised plan that can avoid that criticism or do you think the criticism will come no matter what?

Gorka: The criticism will come no matter what because there is a fundamental disjuncture between the mainstream media, a perception of the world and the actual reality of how serious the threat is. These are the countries that either are state sponsors of terrorism or are the hotbeds of jihadist activity today be it Islamic State or Al Qaeda. This is a threat analysis we inherited from the Obama administration.  The idea that it is controversial is asinine and secondly you’re absolutely right. If this had been an Islamaphobically generated executive order then how is it the most populous Muslim nation in the world, Indonesia, was left off of the list? How is it the most populous Arab Muslim nation in the world  Egypt was left off the list? The challenge that was politically brought was that there was some ulterior motive behind the listing of these seven countries.  The fact is it is an unemotional cold analysis of the threat to America that was the reason for the drawing up of that moratorium of that list of seven nations.  But if you have a political agenda then of course you will spin things politically.

Bates: Another nation that’s not on that list is Saudi Arabia. Can you address the cooperation we are getting from the House of Saud regarding the overall global war on Islamic terrorism?

 Gorka: Again, it’s getting a little too specific.  However,  I will talk about some good things that have occurred. We know that there were issues with certain elements of Saudi society propagating or supporting the propagation of radical ideologies around the world. That attitude changed quite drastically in about ’05, ’06 when Al Qaeda started targeting Saudi officials on Saudi soil.  A nation that may have been problematic for several years has recently been reassessing its attitude to these international actors.  We expect to see even more positive things coming out of Saudi Arabia as we in the White House, especially the President and Secretary Tillerson start to rebuild the relationships with all our allies in the region that were so detrimentally affected by the treatment they received at the hands of the Obama White House.

Bates: Well if I may editorialize for just a moment, it is a relief to see an administration that is taking the threats seriously and is dealing with the world as it is and not as it wishes the world were. Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to the President in the strategic initiatives group, thank you so much for joining us this afternoon on Your Turn on 1330 AM WEBY.

Ryan Zinke Confirmed as Interior Secretary: Kicks Off Tenure With Pro-Hunting Directives

The good news for gun owners continued on Wednesday as the Senate confirmed NRA-backed nominee Ryan Zinke as the 52nd Secretary of the Interior by a bi-partisan vote of 68-31.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) plays a huge role in opportunities for hunting and sport shooting throughout the United States. The DOI’s agencies include the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Its components manage some 500 million acres of surface land, or about 20% of the entire U.S. landmass, including Western Public Lands, National Parks, and National Wildlife Refuges.

The Department of the Interior sets policies for the use of these lands, including whether or not they’re available for hunting and target shooting, and the rules that govern these activities.

Fortunately, America’s sportsmen and sportswomen have a friend in Ryan Zinke.

A career Navy SEAL, Zinke learned to love the outdoors growing up in Montana. During his confirmation hearing on January 17, he noted:

“It was on these lands that my father [taught me] to hunt and fish and the Boy Scouts taught me the principles [of] environmental stewardship and the importance of public access.”

Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, praised Zinke’s confirmation. “The confirmation of an avid outdoorsman to lead the U.S. Department of the Interior marks the end of a hostile era towards hunters and sportsmen,” Cox said. “The NRA looks forward to working with Secretary Zinke in the pursuit of true conservation that respects the rights of America’s outdoorsmen and women.”

To that end, Zinke got right down to business on his very first day, signing two orders to promote hunting and to expand access to public lands.

Secretarial Order. No. 3346 repealed the Obama administration’s parting shot to hunters, which had been a plan to phase out, by the year 2022, the use of lead ammunition and fishing tackle on lands, waters, and facilities administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service.

In addition to hunters and fishermen, the Obama-era order had angered the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA), the umbrella group for state agencies that manage these resources.

AWFA reacted with “utter dismay” to the Obama lead ban, noting, “It does a disservice to hunters and anglers, the firearms and angling industries, and the many professionals on staff with the USFWS who desire a trusting and transparent relationship with their state partners.”  The group characterized the Obama administration’s action as “unacceptable federal overreach” and criticized its severe and disproportionately rural economic impact.

Secretary Zinke’s statement on the repeal explained,

“After reviewing the order and the process by which it was promulgated, I have determined that the Order is not mandated by any existing statutory or regulatory requirement and was issued without significant communication, consultation, or coordination with affected stakeholders.”

Secretary Zinke’s second order, No. 3347, seeks to

“enhance conservation stewardship, increase outdoor recreation, and improve the management of game species and their habitat.” It recognizes recreational hunters and anglers as leaders in America’s conversation movement and invokes Theodore Roosevelt, who “loved the outdoors and vigorously hunted wildlife”.

Specifically, the order requires a report of all steps taken to implement a directive issued by President George W. Bush, “Facilitation of Hunting Heritage and Wildlife Conservation,” as well as a description of any barriers or impediments to its full implementation. These reports will then be submitted to the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council and the Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council to solicit each group’s own consensus recommendations for implementation of the Bush directive.

Using these reports and recommendations, the Department will then develop a further plan of action both to expand recreational hunting and fishing opportunities, as well as coordination, cooperation, and communication with state fish and wildlife agencies. Secretary Zinke will also appoint an official within the Immediate Office of the Secretary to coordinate and implement these efforts.

Chris W. Cox was in attendance at the signing ceremony for the secretarial orders and applauded Zinke’s quick action to undo the last-minute lead-ban, which Cox said “was not a decision based on sound scientific evidence” but “a last second attack on traditional ammunition and our hunting heritage.”

A Promise Kept: Trump Signs Repeal of Obama-Era Social Security Gun Prohibition Rule

On Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump signed the repeal of an Obama-era Social Security Administration (SSA) rule that would have resulted in some 75,000 law-abiding beneficiaries losing their Second Amendment rights each year. 

The SSA rulemaking was issued in the waning weeks of Obama’s presidency and targeted those receiving disability insurance or Supplementary Security Income based on SSA’s listed mental disorders and who were appointed a “representative payee” to help them manage their benefits. The agency –for the first time in its history– sought to portray these individuals as “mental defectives” who were prohibited from acquiring or possessing firearms under federal law. It had planned to notify them of their prohibited status and to report them to NICS.

Making matters worse, the beneficiaries would have had no ability to argue about their suitability to possess firearms before their rights were lost. Instead, they would have been reduced to filing a petition for “restoration” of their rights, an expensive and bureaucratic process that would have required them to pay for a mental health evaluation and to prove they were not dangerous, a premise the government never established in the first place.

The plan drew fire not just from the NRA, but also from the ACLU and a wide range of mental health advocacy and treatment groups from across the political spectrum. Also opposing the plan was the National Council on Disability (NCD), an independent federal agency charged with advising the President, Congress, and other federal agencies regarding policies, programs, practices, and procedures that affect people with disabilities. The NCD issued a statement explaining:

Since the action was first proposed in 2013, NCD has consistently taken the position that equating the need for assistance in managing one’s finances with a false presumption of incapacity in other areas of life, including possession of a firearm, unnecessarily and unreasonably deprives individuals with disabilities of a constitutional right and increases the stigma that [affects] those who may need a representative payee. The overly broad classification of “mental disorder,” includes a wide range of limitations and a shifting set of criteria relevant to whether or not one can engage in substantial gainful activity. NCD remains steadfast in our position that this classification remains irrelevant to the question of whether one can be a responsible gun owner.

The SSA received tens of thousands of comments in opposition to the rule. The NRA-ILA’s submission explained in detail how the rule was contrary to the underlying statute, to the U.S. Constitution and would function mainly to stigmatize the SSA beneficiaries and discourage others from seeking treatment and benefits to which they were entitled. It also argued that there was no empirical support for the notion that the rule would promote public safety.

The SSA, however, ignored the comments and issued the rule essentially as proposed. 

It also brazenly brushed aside proffered evidence that the targeted beneficiaries were not at any increased risk for committing violence with firearms. “We are not attempting to imply a connection between mental illness and a propensity for violence, particularly gun violence,” the SSA wrote. “Rather, we are complying with our obligations under the NIAA, which require us to provide information from our records when an individual falls within one of the categories identified in 18 U.S.C. 922(g).”

Fortunately, pro-gun majorities in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate acted quickly to disapprove the rule under the Congressional Review Act, a federal statute that allows Congress to use an expedited legislative process to overrule administrative actions passed in the waning days of an outgoing administration.

The efforts to roll back this unjustified and legally unauthorized rule were predictably met with a withering barrage of negative and fake reporting from the anti-gun media, with supposed “news” outlets issuing such ludicrous headlines as “Senate, House hand guns to seriously mentally ill.” All these reports completely ignored the fact that existing restrictions on persons who had been involuntarily committed or adjudicated mentally incompetent remained fully intact. By acting to block the rule, Congress simply disapproved the Obama administration’s attempt to create a new class of prohibited persons by “reinterpreting” a federal gun control statute passed in 1968.

President Trump’s signing of the measure not only served to help repair the damage to the Second Amendment wrought by the Obama administration, it ushered in what many hope will be a new era of respect for the right to keep and bear arms. Just over a month into his presidency, Trump signed a free-standing pro-gun bill into law. 

The NRA, of course, was among the earliest and staunchest supporters of Trump’s presidential bid. We thank him for his quick action on this measure and look forward to working with him and the pro-gun majorities in Congress to protect Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

Thompson tweeted this about becoming a follower of Mohammed:

During President Trump’s inaugural address and his recent address to Congress he denounced antisemitism and hate. President Trump, in the video below, denounces the recent wave of threats against America’s Jewish communities by whom we now know were perpetrated by Thompson in part.

The Geller Report notes:

I can see kapo-Jews like Chuck Schumer and Wasserman-Schlutz getting behind this black antisemite, can’t you? He is the perfect Democrat candidate – a hater, a racist, and an antisemite. Sounds like Keith Ellison and a host of other Dems.

And he’s a perfect journalist  in Chicago – beloved racist, until two years of fake new stories and fake quotes became to ridiculous to ignore.

Thompson is the poster child for the party of Barack Obama. The party of Marx, Mohammed, Manning and Meryl.

German police arrested two migrants from Syria and one from Bosnia on Thursday in Dusseldorf. The arrest was for alleged war crimes in war-torn Syria, including the mass murder of three dozen civilians back in 2013.

Federal prosecutors said that 35-year-old Syrian refugee, Abdalfatah H. A., a suspected member of the Al-Qaida linked Al-Nusra Front is accused of 36 counts of war crimes for executing 36 Syrian government employees in 2013.

Another Syrian refugee, 26-year-old Abdulrahman A. A., also a member of the Al-Nusra Front is accused of handling the funds, vehicles and weapons for one of the combat units of the jihadist group.

On a separate arrest, the southern state of Bavaria said that authorities have arrested a 33-year-old Bosnian, who was suspected of suppling vehicles to the Sunni militia, Janud al-Sham.

German Federal prosecutors have launched about a dozen investigations on war crimes committed in Syria and Iraq, as well as multiple cases of refugees being suspected of membership to jihadist groups.

Germany’s population of Islamic extremists has risen from 100 individuals in 2013, it had swell to 1,600 in a span of four years. The German security and intelligence agency (BfV) said that they are keeping close tabs on about 570 individuals who they consider as ‘dangerous’ and are capable of orchestrating terror attacks.

Israelis file multiple lawsuits against Facebook for providing radical Islamists a platform

While Facebook is being sued for providing a platform for jihadists “involved in the ‘stabbing intifada’” against innocent Israelis, the social media giant has apparently been all too busy playing thought police by cranking down on harmless conservatives. According to “former Facebook workers,” they “routinely suppressed conservative news,” including stories that were trending on major news sites. The “news curators” were ordered to “artificially inject selected stories into the trending news mode,” even if they were unpopular.

Media and social media collusion has become the norm, to the detriment of the people, whose thoughts are being manipulated via lies by omission.

Facebook even reportedly banned a Trump supporter last May for complaining that the social media site was censoring “right wing activists,” thereby proving his point.

“Terrorism Cases Against Facebook Reach climax”, by Yonah Jeremy Bob, Jerusalem Post, March 2, 2017:

American-Israeli Richard Lakin, [sic] told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that he is “outraged” at Facebook for pretending that it has zero tolerance for terrorism.

He spoke minutes after a climactic hearing in a terrorism lawsuit against the social media giant.

Lakin was one of the original plaintiffs in a 2015 lawsuit filed by a group of 20,000 Israelis against Facebook for providing a platform for terrorists involved in the “stabbing intifada,” and demanding an injunction ordering the firm to act more forcefully against terrorist incitement on its pages.

Wednesday’s hearing was the final one in a US federal court in Brooklyn before the judge decides whether Shurat Hadin – Israel Law Center, representing the plaintiffs, has found the first-ever legal silver bullet for breaking what has been an impenetrable barrier protecting Facebook from terrorism lawsuits.

Lakin was wounded and later died from his wounds in an attack by two Palestinians armed with a knife and a gun on a Jerusalem bus in fall 2015.

The 20,000 plaintiffs’ case is combined with a $1 billion damages case on behalf of the families of five victims, including US Army veteran Taylor Force, of the terrorist group Hamas.

Facebook had filed a motion to dismiss both cases arguing that, like all prior similar terrorism cases against it, the US Communications Decency Act (1996) bars all legal claims against it for posts by third parties using its platform – a defense that has proved unbeatable to date.

Shurat Hadin has argued that Facebook was not the intended target of the Communications Decency Act, which was focused on publishing, and that the social media platform has powerful algorithms it could use to catch and take down incitement and terrorist communications.

One relatively novel issue is the NGO’s attempt to use the US Anti-Terrorism Act against Facebook and to define the company as providing material support for terrorism by letting terrorists use its platform, instead of merely accusing Facebook of failing to control incitement, a less serious charge.

Shurat Hadin has admitted that the only court decision to date on this issue, earlier in 2016, went in favor of Facebook, but has claimed that case was “plainly wrongly decided and an outlier,” since a terrorism claim, unlike an incitement claim, relates not to publishing content, but to providing services.

The argument is that even if Facebook is not actively publishing third parties’ content, it is actively providing them the service of its platform.

Avni also told the Post that he “continued to be outraged by Facebook’s behavior… While this is a lawsuit about a specific issue of law, that they shouldn’t provide services to terror organizations, there is a basic ethical question that they shouldn’t help terrorists and allow them to operate freely on their platform.”

He added, “Facebook’s lawyer started his speech saying it has zero tolerance for terror. But the big dirty secret is that they make a ton of money from it. Facebook is getting lots of traffic and selling ads – the quantity of jihadists’ traffic is big and they get a lot of money out of it.”

Shurat Hadin’s New York counsel Robert Tolchin said, “Our case transcends” the Communications Decency Act, since “we are not talking about who published a post – we are talking about who provided services to a terror organization. Most of the judge’s questions [at the hearing] focused on that tension.”

Tolchin said he thought the judge came away with a view that the issue was more complicated than being able to just simply dismiss it because of the standard Communications Decency Act argument.

Shurat Hadin Director Nitsana Darshan- Leitner said, “The terrorist stabbing attacks throughout Israel and the murder of these innocent American and Israeli victims would never have occurred without the massive wave of incitement over social media.

“Facebook believes it is entitled to make billions of dollars annually while having no obligations to police its web pages and filter out calls to murder innocent Jews worldwide,” she added….

A Short ‘Honey-Do’ List for President Trump

Although Republican lawmakers were confronted with shouting, screaming mobs during their February recess, they have no one to blame but themselves… or one of their not-dry-behind-the-ears staffers who wouldn’t know a leftist political assault from a Girl Scout picnic.  Someone in their capital offices or in their district offices should have known that a George Soros/Barack Obama-linked organization called “Indivisible” planned to turn their town hall meetings into rowdy shouting matches.  Their goal was to create an impression that the congressman or senator was very unpopular with voters and they were somewhat successful in creating that impression.

Indivisible protesters claim a kinship with the Tea Party, but like almost everything else we hear from liberals and Democrats, those claims are totally without merit.  For starters, it should be noted that Tea Party activists are all people who are for something, while liberals and Democrats, including the troublemakers of Indivisible, refuse to say what they’re actually for… other than the early departure of Donald Trump from the White House.

What that should tell us is that there are an awful lot of people in Washington with a “D” behind their names who have far too much free time on their hands.  As our mothers used to caution us, “idle hands are the Devil’s play-things.”

It’s time that Donald Trump and congressional Republicans took off the gloves and played a little political hardball.  They might want to give Obama and the Democrats something to think about by preparing a list of “honey-dos” guaranteed to hold the interest of Democrats.  For starters, Republican congressional leaders should announce plans for an audit of Obama’s 2009 stimulus program, a $787 billion boondoggle passed by Congress in February 2009.  What happened to the $787 billion that was to be spent on “shovel ready” projects when, by Obama’s own admission, they couldn’t find many “shovel ready” projects?  Once again, like much of what Democrats do, the stimulus was a solution in search of a problem.  Nevertheless, we do need to know exactly who walked off with nearly a trillion dollars of taxpayer money.

Now that Obama has let it be known that he’s ready to come out of retirement to lead a “shadow government,” Trump may want to lay a little trap for him as payback for the humiliation he suffered at the 2012 White House Correspondent’s dinner when Obama publicly ridiculed him for being a “birther.”  The White House could hint that Trump, after several months in office, was considering inviting Obama back to the Oval Office for a general discussion on several knotty international and domestic problems.  However, in order to accommodate that discussion, it would be necessary to verify that Obama’s security clearance was up to date.  And when the White House staff found that Obama cannot pass the same Homeland Security E-Verify test that all green card applicants must pass in order to work in the United States… all E-Verify attempts using Obama’s name and Social Security number from his federal and state tax returns produce a “no match” response… they would quietly, and without fanfare, appear to drop the issue.

However, the White House press corps, always anxious to add another nail to Trump’s coffin, could be expected to press for an answer, fearful that Obama was being “dissed” by Donald Trump.  The White House press secretary would then attempt to avoid the issue, saying that the idea was still “under consideration.”  But, as pressure built within the White House press corps for a Trump response, a carefully placed “leak” could let the story out.  Then, in Sean Spicer’s daily press briefing, he could finally be forced to “come clean.”  By that time, everyone in the country would know that President Trump would be unable to share classified information with Obama because he has been using a stolen Social Security number for many years and cannot qualify for access to confidential, secret, or top secret information.

Turning to the illegal immigration issue, the Trump administration should not delay plans to implement a cutoff of federal funding to cities and states that have declared themselves to be “sanctuaries” for illegal aliens.  If those cities and states insist on actively defying U.S. law, acting as accomplices to millions of illegal aliens, there must be a price to pay.  All of those members of the Hollywood entertainment community who couldn’t help but sneak in a few anti-Trump digs as they accepted their awards on Oscar night will have to be taught a bit of humility.

According to estimates prepared by a California legislative committee, the State of California receives some $368 billion each year in federal support, 77% of which (some $283.4 billion) goes to individuals and corporations to cover the costs of Social Security, Medicare, defense contracts, federal civilian wages and salaries, military wages and salaries, veterans benefits, non-defense contracts, federal retiree benefits, etc.  The remaining $84.6 billion goes directly to state and local governments.  Presumably, it is that $84.6 billion that the Trump administration would  target.  So how would Californians respond?  Realizing that the IRS can’t put tens of thousands of wealthy Californians behind bars, what we might expect to see is mass avoidance of federal income taxes.  And how would the IRS respond to that?  More than likely the IRS would choose to levy penalties and interest on individual taxpayers.  And when the tax bills remained unpaid, the IRS would begin to attach bank accounts and to file liens on real property.

And finally, if money truly is the “mother’s milk” of politics, then George Soros and his Open Society Foundation are an entire dairy farm for the Democrat Party and every other radical left pressure group and anti-American organization on Earth.

Soros immigrated to the United States in 1956 and became a naturalized U.S. citizen on December 18, 1961.  A Hungarian Jew, Soros worked for the Waffen SS in Hungary during World War II, delivering eviction notices to Jewish businessmen and shopkeepers and helping the Nazis dispose of Jewish property and personal belongings.  Not only has he not expressed remorse for his role in dispossessing untold numbers of fellow Jews, many of whom later died in Nazi concentration camps, he has said in an interview that he considers the year he spent working for the Nazis in Budapest “the happiest time” of his life.

Just four years before Soros arrived in the U.S., another World War II refugee, 32-year-old Ukrainian Ivan Demjanjuk, arrived in New York with his wife and child.  The Demjanjuk’s lived in Indiana for a time but later settled in the Cleveland, Ohio, area where Demjanjuk worked as a diesel engine mechanic at a Ford Motor Company assembly plant.  He applied for citizenship

and became a naturalized U.S. citizen on November 14, 1958.  His story is an interesting one.

At the outbreak of World War II, while working as a tractor driver on a Ukrainian collective farm, Demjanjuk was drafted into the Soviet Army.  However, after being captured by German forces and sent to a POW camp, he and other Ukrainian prisoners, knowing that their lot in life would be far better in the German army than to be subjected to the cruelties of the Russian army, put on German uniforms and agreed to join forces with the Germans to fight the Russians.

Demjanjuk was transferred to a German POW camp at Sobibor, in occupied Poland, where he was assigned duty as a guard.  When the war ended and members of the enlisted ranks were disarmed and sent home, Demjanjuk took his family and sailed for New York.  However, in 1975, a Ukrainian newspaper published a list of names of ethnic Ukrainians living in the United States.  Demjanjuk’s name was on the list and it was only a matter of time before Nazi hunters compared that list to a list of names of those who had worked in Nazi concentration camps.

Demjanjuk’s U.S. citizenship was revoked for failure to disclose the nature of his service in the German army and he was deported to Israel for trial.  However, the Israeli court failed to convict him and he returned to Cleveland where he rejoined his wife and three children.  But the U.S. Government was not finished with him.  And although his citizenship was restored in 1998, the U.S. Department of Justice claimed new evidence was found against him and revoked his citizenship a second time in 2002.  However, when no country would accept him he remained in the U.S. until April 2, 2009, when Germany agreed to try him in a German federal court.

Demjanjuk, gravely ill, was taken from his home in Cleveland on a stretcher, transported to the airport by ambulance, and flown to Munich.  On July 13, 2011, 91-year-old John Demjanjuk was wheeled into a Munich courtroom where he was charged with having been an “accessory” to the murder of 27,900 Jewish prisoners in the Sobibor concentration camp.  He was found guilty on all counts and was sentenced to five years in prison.  He died on March 17, 2012, a free man, while awaiting an appeal of his conviction.

So the question arises: when is the last time someone reviewed George Soros’s citizenship application?  If Ivan Demjanjuk could be hounded to death because he failed to fully disclose his wartime experience as a prison guard in the German army, why was Soros given a pass for his role as a functionary of the Nazi Waffen SS?  Or did he simply lie about his wartime service?

As matters now stand, Trump’s most dangerous and implacable enemies are a “loose cannon” ex-president with delusions of grandeur and an aging international billionaire who hates America and its people and who will spend whatever it takes to do us harm.

Barack Obama and George Soros are the Bobbsey Twins of the “hate America” movement, and so long as they are free to do so they will do everything in their power to bring our great nation to its knees.  As liberals and Democrats accelerate their campaign to delegitimize the Trump presidency, let us hope that he will not hesitate to use the power and the influence of his office to rid the nation of those poisonous influences.

ACLU, CAIR, Obama, Soros Sued for allegedly ‘Inciting Violence’

Complaint alleges Klayman was assaulted by Muslim woman at LAX Airport.

Los Angeles, Ca., March 2, 2017 – Today, Larry Klayman, the founder of both Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch and a former federal prosecutor filed a complaint before the U.S. District for the Central District of California (Case No. 2:17-cv-01705), alleging that the ACLU, the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) (which was previously named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal terrorist trial in Texas), Barack Obama, George Soros, and former Attorney General Eric Holder, whose law firm represents the ACLU in various matters, and other named defendants all conspired and acted to further violent protests over President Trump’s initial executive order to implement a 90-day moratorium on immigration for 7 predominantly Muslim Middle Eastern countries.

As a result of this alleged incitement to violent protests, the complaint alleges that Klayman was assaulted by a Muslim woman in the baggage claim area of Southwest airlines. Just weeks earlier a terrorist attack had occurred in the baggage claim area at Ft. Lauderdale International Airport, killing and severely wounding several travelers. Klayman, the complaint alleges, thus believed at the time of the assault at LAX that he and others were under terrorist attack and about to be killed or severely harmed physically.

During the time of the protests of President Trump’s initial immigration order, the ACLU, allegedly whipping up violent protest in concert with other defendants, raised reportedly over 24 million USD in just one weekend, profiting from its alleged illegal actions. The complaint thus alleges that this was in effect a racketeering enterprise.

Klayman had this to say upon filing the complaint: “The ACLU, CAIR, Obama, Soros and Holder and the other defendants must be held to account for their actions, in my opinion designed to destroy the Trump presidency to further their socialist and pro-Muslim agendas. I got caught in their crossfire. I therefore will not stand by and allow the nation to be destroyed by these leftists who have no respect for law and order! My complaint asks for over ten million USD in damages, as well as punitive damages for these malicious acts to prevent this from happening again.”

Trump’s Speech Exposes the Sickness of the Democrat Party

While piddling around in my work shop, I heard this sound bite on the radio of Trump talking about his upcoming speech to congress that evening.

President Trump said, “All I can do is speak from the heart and say what I want to do.” I thought, “Wow, what a concept.” Involved as an activist in the business of politics since 2008, I can tell you that Trump has been a laughing stock in the political arena ever since he announced he was running for the presidency.

Look at this clown. He doesn’t behavior like a politician. He doesn’t even know how to speak like a professional politician. No, Trump is just a guy who does not talk down to us and does not ramble on and on with a bunch of intellectual sounding crap. In the black hood where I come from, we called it jive. Obama was a masterful jive talker.

Folks, I relate to Trump because I do not know how to sound smart the way liberals do while advocating insane, evil and ungodly nonsense. My dad is a preacher. My late mom was a domestic worker. They taught all five of their kids to trust God, be responsible, hard work and always try to do the right thing. Thus, I do not know how to sound like a politician. My instincts are to look people in the eye, speak from the heart and tell the truth.

Trump’s down to earth, straight talk nature is exactly why 60 something million Americans have bonded with him. Meanwhile, political snobs and fake news media still do not get it. The political establishment, Obama’s army of domestic terrorists and fake news media will continue using their standard tried and true tactics to destroy Trump. They will fail.

Watching Trump address Congress, it struck me, “Oh my gosh, every common sense thing Trump says he intends to do beneficial to America is vehemently opposed by the democrats.” What on earth has happened to my dad’s Democrat Party? My fellow Americans, our greatest threat is not ISIS. It is the Democrat Party.

Here are just a few Trump putting America first promises that have enraged democrats, launching a scorched earth policy to stop him.

A new national pride is sweeping across our nation.” Democrat controlled public schools have been teaching our kids that patriotism is racist.

All the nations of the world—friend or foe—will find that America is strong, America is proud, and America is free.” Remember Obama touring the world apologizing for our greatness?

We’ve financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit—and so many other places throughout our land.” As an American who happens to be black, it baffled me for years why black democrats seemed content with cities they control like Chicago, Baltimore and Detroit becoming hellholes of black poverty and black on black crime. Then, it dawned on me. Democrat blacks are not black. They are first and foremost liberals who seek power via government control and dependency.

We’ve defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross—and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate.” Democrats believe America is too white. They want open borders to attract future democrat voters of color.

Our military will be given the resources its brave warriors so richly deserve.” The Democrat Party leadership are old hippies, flower children who hate our military and guns.

We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a 5 year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials –- and a lifetime ban on becoming lobbyists for a foreign government.” Folks, taking the power away from the DC cartel and giving it back to We the People as our Founders intended has Trump atop the excrement list of both political parties.

We have withdrawn the United States from the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership.” Democrats hate this. Who do we think we are?

…my Administration has answered the pleas of the American people for immigration enforcement and border security. By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. We want all Americans to succeed –- but that can’t happen in an environment of lawless chaos. We must restore integrity and the rule of law to our borders.”Folks, democrats say screw the law, screw jobs and screw national security. They want as many unskilled government dependent illegals flooding across our borders as possible. Obama spent a whopping $113 billion, $1,117 each, settling illegals into our country, priming them to become democrat voters.

We’ve heard much about Trump’s narcissism. Call me crazy because I don’t see that when I watch and hear him speak. I see a man aware and humbled by the job placed upon his shoulders, committed to getting it done; committed to keeping his campaign promises; committed to making America great again.

‘Drain the Swamp’ Promise Drives Establishment Panic

I’m consistently asked this question by bewildered Republicans and Trump supporters: Why won’t Democrats give President Trump a chance? He was duly elected and yet the attacks began immediately. Why? There was an election and Trump won. Give him a chance.

It’s a reasonable question. And the answer is the perfect confluence of dynamics propelling this phenomena of immediate and historically intense opposition.

First, we need to understand that the response by Democrats, the media and the reactionary, organized and funded street Left, needs to be seen through the prism of why Trump was elected in the first place.

Trump’s campaign and election is a repudiation in every conceivable way of Obama’s policies, many of Bush’s policies and Congress’ game-playing. Many Americans did mediocre under Bush, and most did poorly under Obama. The reasons for which are a different topic, but they fall under the broadest umbrella of “The way Washington does things.” And the way Washington does things is to put Washington interests first. Not Americans’.

Trump tapped into those frustrations and angers at Washington, and into substantial American anxiety over the country’s direction and slow demise. The anger of Trump supporters was largely not race-based. Not immigrant-based. Obviously not gender-based.

It was Washington-based.

The swamp today

Washington is a well-oiled machine — for Washington interests.

The power structure within Washington — the most important, wealthy and powerful capitol in the world — is this: Politicians, beginning with the President and Congress; political appointees, starting with Cabinet members, then their deputies and so on; lobbyists, who are often former members of Congress and former political appointees (that’s the revolving door Trump is trying to close); and finally, the entrenched bureaucracy that makes a solid living by the tens of thousands, often accomplishing little more than self-perpetuating. The leaks damaging to Trump and appointees is coming from this final group.

The Washington metro area never suffered through the long recession and economic downturn that the rest of the country did. It never does. Because the billions of dollars — trillions, actually — just keep pouring into the Capitol.

This is the swamp that hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters chanted about at his campaign stops across the country.

When Trump was elected, he immediately set about keeping the promises he made over and over on the campaign trail. Draining would commence. That in itself is shocking, as it has long been accepted — by the media and “smart” circles, not so much the rest of America — that Republicans and Democrats alike say a lot of things during a campaign to get elected that we all know — wink, wink — they do not intend to act on.

This is the bait and switch. Clinton was never going to provide a middle class tax cut. Bush was never going to cut entitlements. Obama was never going to block gay marriage. The media knows it and is part of the act.

This Beltway acceptance of lying to the American people in “campaign mode” reflects the elite’s expectation that the masses are stupid enough to not see it during governing mode. That’s also how Washington works. But the people saw it, and found someone they believed would do what he said. The results are in. Trump is setting about the draining.

Rapid response

The establishment of both parties was rocked on their keisters by Trump’s election. His campaign mode is the same as his governing mode in terms of doing what he said he would. His quick actions on promises to start undoing the Washington that does not work for most Americans was like poking a mama grizzly in her den with her cubs.

Reaction was swift, from demonstrations without to leaks from within. The small minority of Republicans publicly opposing Trump gave cover to Democrats to go to unexplored extremes, beyond the normal political oppositions all presidents naturally face from the opposing party.

Because of Trump’s own careless linguistic excesses and thin skin, he provides continual fodder for the masses of the angry Left that was being used by the organized, funded elements of the Left.

Remember, these were people who were sure they were going to get the first woman president and losing to such an upstart apple cart over-turner was enraging. The demonstration organizers and funders are able to take that anger and frustration of the Left and use it to leverage their existing infrastructure of protesting machines. While many people in the demonstrations are sincerely upset, they are being used by the Left establishment.

So this impressive array came together: The Democrat establishment, just a small but cover-providing portion of the Republican establishment, the media establishment that Trump continues to engage head-on like no one else, the entrenched bureaucratic establishment (including the intelligence agencies) and ancillary establishments of lobbyists, experts, etc. They aligned in common cause against the man that most seems to threatened the system that has empowered and enriched them.

Trump is a highly imperfect vehicle for this undertaking, but this same array would have come together against any candidate who truly meant to “drain the swamp.” Trump just makes it a little easier with his public carelessness.

If Trump is allowed to do what he says he wants to do, it becomes the first loosening of the plug at the bottom of the swamp. A lot of political oxes will be gored, power and influence will be lost and cozy D.C. establishments on the Left and Right will be up-ended.

They won’t wait to see how he does because it is not in their best interests to do so, and they seem to have all the components in place to not wait.

Seismic change: Tuesday’s address to Congress

Key phrase being “seem to.”

This is vital, because Trump presented a dramatically different image of himself when he address the Joint Session of Congress Tuesday night — a State of the Union for a newly elected president. In it, Trump laid out a vision for the country that was not sifted through the heavy filter of media bias and negativity.

Trump was presidential, controlled, focused on his vision and agenda, compassionate and patriotic. He hit 80 percent conservative notes, 20 percent populist notes. The reviews even in the media were that Trump not only gave a great speech — because expectations are low with him on giving speeches — but a well above-average speech for any State of the Union or equivalent. It was a real effort at post-partisanship (to which the Democrats in attendance gave the metaphorical middle finger) and a forceful vision of a renewed America.

Even his fiercest enemies, such as Van Jones, said: “He became President of the United States in that moment, period.”

So if Trump not only does exactly what he promised to do in terms of the broadest “drain the swamp” actions, but does it with more of the gravitas expected of the office, then the Washington establishment will have two options: dig in deeper and ratchet up or give up and surrender.

There is no reason to think they will easily surrender their power, influence and wealth.

Illegal Immigration Drives Income Inequality

EDITORS NOTE: This column originally appeared on The Revolutionary Act.

Time for Republican Millennials to Grow Up

Two weeks ago, Shermichael Singleton, the deputy chief of staff for incoming Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary Ben Carson, was unceremoniously fired; with the dismissal, the Trump administration also stripped away his dignity.

It all started back on October 24, 2016. Singleton wrote a very critical editorial about Trump’s presidential candidacy.

“…The moral fiber of the Republican Party and America as a whole is at stake. That is why I continue to speak up against Trump’s candidacy…There is no way I can bring myself to vote for Donald Trump,” said Singleton.

I have absolutely no regard for most Black Republicans from the millennial generation. They are arrogant as hell, think they know everything, and have no intellectual curiosity about anything.

Singleton is one of the few from this group that I actually have some hope for. I think he is very sharp, but I think he lacks the proper guidance from some of the more seasoned political operators, who could have guided him through some of his unforced errors.

But one thing that has been bothering me about this Singleton episode is, if Trump was as bad as he indicated in his October column’ why in the hell would he want to work for someone like that?

By accepting a job with Trump, he undercut the whole rationale of his editorial. In essence, he became the very thing he was accusing Trump of. If you “can’t vote” for Trump, how can you justify working for him? Just a thought.

After the White House gave him a job at HUD, they came across this critical editorial. From my understanding, they then called Carson’s chief of staff, who was tasked with firing Singleton.

He was ushered out of the building by security with no advanced warning. This was the White House’s version of doing a perp walk. This was totally unnecessary. I don’t want to hear any garbage about this being standard operating procedures.

It wasn’t like he was accused of embezzlement or rape. He wrote a damned editorial. The White House could have simply let the chief of staff walk him out of the building after work hours and no one would have been the wiser. If they wanted to.

Carson was notified of the firing the next day. Wait! Let me get this straight. The incoming head of HUD (Carson has yet to be confirmed by the Senate, but is expected to be by the end of the week) has one of his top personal aides fired and he had absolutely no input into the decision? Really?

Carson should have immediately withdrawn his name from consideration for the HUD post. But I digress.

My advice to Singleton: SHUT THE HELL UP! Stop doing media interviews. You seemed to have become intoxicated with being in the media. You need to lay low for about a year and get back on track. You are only compounding your troubles.

Shermichael, you should be extremely concerned that not one person has publically said anything supportive of you. Carson’s only words about you was he was “baffled and speechless” at your firing but “he is moving on.” That is not exactly a ringing endorsement of you. Shouldn’t that bother you?

It is quite obvious that you have no seasoned people around you that give a damn about you; or they would have given you the same counsel I am offering you.
I cringed when I read this statement by you in a media interview, “I helped him [Carson] through the confirmation process…I actually wrote the initial draft of the opening [hearing] statement…I guess you could say I was the brainchild behind it.”

Shermichael, I have written congressional testimony for many people and written speeches for some of the biggest names in business, sports, entertainment, and politics; you never, let me repeat: never ever, publically, take credit for something like that.

You come off as self-promoting, arrogant and bringing attention to yourself, not your principal, Ben Carson.

I think you have a bright future, but you must surround yourself with experienced people who can guide you. By your actions, it’s obvious that you don’t have that type of support, or you are simply ignoring their advice.

You must understand that how you, and by extension Carson, were treated is an ominous sign that the White House has no regard for you. You must understand that the loud silence of those who call you friends are like the sounding brass or the tingling cymbal, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.

Your experience should be a lesson and a wakeup call to all Black millennials in our party. Civilization did not start when you came out of your mother’s womb. Believe it or not, there were Black Republicans long before millennials came along.

Shermichael, you must spend more time reflecting on this experience and less time talking to the media. I am not convinced that you have any idea how serious your treatment was and what it means to your future. Just my humble thoughts.

A Globalist’s Gambit

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.” – Adolf Hitler

Gross Schechter Day School is a Jewish day school whose mission is to encourage “creativity, exploration and self-discovery” by stressing “critical thinking, personal responsibility and global awareness.”  Their children are to be “active students of the global world,” making them the ideal subjects for a multicultural outreach program, such as the “No Place for Hate Workshop,” sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

The Workshop hype claims to prepare students to support and assist in resolving peer conflicts and to uncritically accept all manner of belief systems, cultures, ethics, values, behaviors, and religions.  They are being taught to abandon their own standards of morality while accepting the evils perpetrated by others, such as the oppressive woman-hating regime of Islam, where they chop off hands and feet for petty crimes and decapitate for other offenses.

Determined to set in stone this rejection of our own ethos, the ADL requires the children to personally sign a Resolution of Respect that would condemn them to a life of naïve passivity, like sheep led into a world of increasing violence and uncertainty.  Northampton Area School District’s Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik explained their acceptance this way: “The blend of ethnic backgrounds in the district has changed along with that of the country, triggering the need for the program.”  He failed to grasp that the program obliges the original residents to heedlessly accept the behaviors of the invading culture, rather than helping the newcomers to assimilate into its new culture – to become Americans.

Established in 1913 to “stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all,” the ADL has strayed from this vocation to promoting globalism, leftism, and an all-encompassing socialist government.  It began connecting with schools in 2015, only now approaching a tranquil Jewish day school in idyllic Middle-American suburbia, adjacent to a city declared by its foolish councilmen to be a “welcoming” community (with immunity from the law) to illegal immigrants.

The ADL is led by CEO and National Director Jonathan Greenblatt, a man with considerable experience.  Greenblatt served as director of the Impact Economy Initiative project at the Aspen Institute, funded by George Soros and five other billionaires through Soros’s Open Society Institute.  Their programs are designed to “assess” (and transform) American injustice (viewing America as immoral), social and economic problems (a step toward social engineering), structural racism (featuring racial inequity), and the Institute’s “Roundtable on Community Change.”  This cabal worked to engineer the defeat of President George W. Bush (2004) and John Kerry.

Greenblatt and Soros are now manipulating a “resistance” against President Trump during his First 100 Days.  Their Democracy Alliance, which also includes Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, and Keith Ellison, has strategized full warfare against President Trump.  Greenblatt headed the office of Obama’s White House Social Innovation and Civic Participation, designed to place the responsibility of increasing anti-Semitism on the Trump administration. He apparently charged Steve Bannon with anti-Semitism because the latter knows of Greenblatt’s nefarious affiliations.  The accusation was walked back.

America’s teachers have already been indoctrinated by the Common Core standards and textbooks, and Soros’s many organizations can pave the road to acceptance of the No Place for Hate Workshop.  The Gross Schechter Day School, passive and uninformed altruists, is the perfect patsy for such as the ADL, an organization that continues to bathe in the light of its historic accomplishments.

One of their programs is titled “Anti-Bias Education: The Power of Social-Emotional Learning” – a leftist technique that indoctrinates for a social-justice agenda that is already ensconced in Common Core curricula.  The Type #1 philosophy of education that existed prior to Common Core requires knowledge-based, academic, grade-level-specific, clearly worded lessons that increase in depth and complexity from one grade level to the next, and measurable with largely right or wrong answers.  Its antithesis, the Type #2 used in schools today, minimizes academic knowledge; emphasizes process over the right answer; and stresses feelings, opinions, and beliefs over facts.  By accentuating subjectivity and relativism, all traditional and objective parameters are removed from the child’s inner landscape and they are readied for socialist indoctrination.

Included in this technique is self-awareness – to recognize one’s emotions, thoughts, impulses – used to instill in them a sense of uniformity.  Hence, the undeveloped mind is taught to view with suspicion everything that smacks of individuality, creativity, the recognition of differences, and of being able to discern right from wrong, good from evil.  Controlling their feelings, curbing their language, and retraining their uniqueness is classic brainwashing.  They are taught to read state-designed material, replacing the classics upon which are based our skills of reading, analysis and intellectual communication.

Another of the programs encourages youth-led movements to bring about significant social change, as their minds are steeped in specific, but Orwellian, terms – diversity, multiculturalism, peace, anti-racism, human rights – all seen through a jaundiced perspective and activism.  The mind control makes possible the creation of an obedient militia, and the students are ready to take their crusade from the classroom to the street.

This newly trained league forms the inspired soldiers, in thrall to the exciting idealism and political action.  It is evident in the Occupy movement, Black Lives Matter, Never-Trumpers, Women’s March on Washington, and in the wanton flag-burning, window-breaking anarchy. While those randomly interviewed could not reason their activity to the reporter, they are programmed to educate others, advocate for legislation, run for office, demonstrate, and create public awareness campaigns through social media and the press.

At a time when hate crimes are increasing against Jews, Christians and other groups are suffering worldwide at the hands of Islamic ideology, and campus hate groups are proliferating, the ADL is otherwise occupied.

Where was the ADL when Oberlin College’s assistant professor Joy Karega was cited for posting on her Facebook that the Jews were responsible for 9/11 and the Paris massacre?  Where were they when pre-school teacher Nancy Salem, one of 23 anti-Israel activists at The Children’s Courtyard, advocated racist violence against Jews?  Where are they every time another BDS or SJP (Students for Justice in Palestine) group gathers in a college or university to stage another Israel Apartheid Week or shout down a visiting conservative speaker?

Perhaps these are moving along well enough and don’t require his intervention, but Greenblatt’s dander is up when President Trump proceeds with acts to keep America safe from the riots, rapes, and regrets that are plaguing Europe.  He raises his voice to condemn this President and his Executive Order, intending, no doubt, to thwart any interference with the distribution of peoples necessary to prepare for globalism.

The ADL’s artfulness in reaching out to private schools should compel us to contact the schools’ administrations, which must be made aware of this danger.  For their own protection, teachers and pupils need to learn to discern friend from foe, good from evil, and understand that we are all not alike, and should not be categorized and treated as such.  Only then can they hope to protect themselves from the onslaught of the combined civilizational warfare – the 1400-year Muslim conquests and the globalist left that work in tandem to dismantle and reshape our society, beginning with the minds of the young.

In a country that observes its Judeo-Christian values by taking in migrants from Islamic countries, tolerating the fact that their every prayer rings with hatred of Jews and Christians, we have seen no evidence that the ADL has instituted constructive programs where they are needed most – in Islamic schools and community groups.
