Liberal Activists Just Made a Website Using Kavanaugh’s Name. That Could Be Illegal.

After enduring weeks of character attacks and a disgraceful media lynching, Brett Kavanaugh now sits on the Supreme Court. But some activists still aren’t letting it go.

In a new assault on Kavanaugh, a liberal advocacy group has created a website called “brettkavanaugh.com.”

Instead of containing accurate, truthful information about the justice’s professional credentials and legal career, the webpage instead is about sexual assault. The first thing the viewer sees is a banner headline saying, “We Believe Survivors.”

This is another hit job on Kavanaugh.

Aside from misleading the public about him, this website may very well break the law by constituting an unlawful theft of Kavanaugh’s property interest in his name.

The webpage was put up by a group called Fix the Court, run by Gabe Roth, a former NBC producer who also worked for a left-leaning political consulting firm. Fix the Court is entirely funded by the New Venture Fund, which, according to the Capital Research Center, is a “major funding organization for left-wing organizations as well as the fiscal sponsor of a number of activist groups like [Fix the Court].”

The New Venture Fund has been “criticized as a ‘dark money organization’ for serving as a way for left-wing groups to anonymously funnel money toward advocacy issues, such as attacking Republicans.”

As the Capital Research Center says, although Fix the Court purports to be nonpartisan, “Gabe Roth is highly critical of President Donald Trump’s nominees to the Supreme Court, Associate Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.” This is clearly demonstrated in the way Roth used Kavanaugh’s name in the website domain.

Roth has used Fix the Court to push for term limits for Supreme Court justices as well as live television coverage of oral arguments. He has also pushed for a requirement that justices file detailed financial disclosure reports to be published online. (For the record, Fix the Court doesn’t disclose its donors on its own website.)

Roth has said that he believes the claims made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford despite their inconsistencies, the lack of corroborating evidence, and outright refutations by some of the alleged witnesses.

Congress has shown concern for the misuse of names in website domains. In 1999, it passed a federal law (15 U.S.C. §8131) that allows an individual to sue any person who “registers a domain name that consists of the name of” that individual without his or her consent “with the specific intent to profit from such name by selling the domain name for financial gain.”

Roth may not fall within this federal statute unless it can be proven he registered Kavanaugh’s domain name in order to sell it for financial gain.

But Roth and Fix the Court may still be liable for what they have done. On its website, Fix the Court lists its office as being located in the District of Columbia. Therefore, D.C. law applies to its operations.

The District of Columbia recognizes the common law tort of misappropriation of another person’s name or likeness. In several decisions, including Vassiliades v. Garfinckel’s (1985) and Tripp v. U.S. (2003), the D.C. courts have adopted the Second Restatement of the Law on Torts. Section 652C of the restatement provides that anyone “who appropriates to his own use or benefit the name or likeness of another is subject to liability to the other for invasion of his privacy.”

The comments to Section 652 make it clear that the interest protected by this rule “is the interest of the individual in the exclusive use of his own identity.” Unlike the federal statute, a violation does not require that someone like Roth acquire the name in order to make a profit, although there seems little doubt that Roth and Fix the Court may profit from increased donations due to the attention given to the website.

In fact, the restatement says that the rule “is not limited to commercial appropriation.” It applies when a “defendant makes use of the plaintiff’s name or likeness for his own purposes and benefits, even though the use is not a commercial one, and even though the benefit sought to be obtained is not a pecuniary one.”

Here, Roth is using the public’s interest in Kavanaugh to benefit his organization by bringing attention, support, and possible donations to Fix the Court and its advocacy against Kavanaugh. That public benefit falls squarely within the rule according to Tripp v. U.S., in which the court pointed out that the types of benefits contemplated under the restatement include “reputation, prestige, social or commercial standing, public interest, or other values of the plaintiff’s name or likeness.”

Roth’s use of Kavanaugh’s name is clearly not just “incidental,” and might well violate the misappropriation rule.

This kind of misappropriation of internet domain names of celebrities, government officials, and even ordinary Americans in order to fool the public into going to such a site and reading derogatory or misleading information about that person is another unpleasant and obnoxious misuse of the internet in the social media age.

No one should have a right to use someone else’s name or likeness in this manner. Roth, Fix the Court, and the New Venture Fund should be embarrassed that they are engaging in such deceitful, underhanded, and potentially unlawful behavior.

A Rape Survivor Just Won the Nobel Peace Prize. ‘Feminists’ Are Nowhere to Be Found.

As feminists were busy peddling their “War on Women” narrative in the U.S., Yazidi sex slave survivor Nadia Murad was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting a real War on Women in the Middle East.

Nadia was honored for her efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war, together with Dr. Denis Mukwege of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who has been a relentless healer and advocate for women.

Their stories serve as an important reminder that as American women debate what constitutes enough evidence to block a nominee from taking a seat on the Supreme Court, corroboration and evidence are abundant in places such as northern Iraq, where hundreds of women and girls are still enslaved and routinely subjected to rape.

Nadia was abducted in northern Iraq in August 2014, when ISIS took over her village. Militants gave the Yazidi people—a Kurdish and Arabic-speaking religious minority—two choices: Convert to Islam or die. Refusing to give in, Nadia watched men get massacred and family members march to their graves.

At just 21 years old, she was kidnapped alongside an estimated 3,000 other Yazidi women and girls, traded as sex slaves from one ISIS fighter to another. She was forced to pray, dress up, and apply makeup in preparation for her rape, which was often committed by gangs.


While any comparison between Nadia’s story and the accusations leveled against newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh would be completely unfair, it is fair to wonder how news of uncorroborated allegations of gang rape brought by porn lawyer Michael Avenatti can overshadow a gang rape survivor-turned-women’s advocate being honored with the most prestigious award in the world.

For years, it seemed the world didn’t care about Nadia’s story and the thousands of others like it. It took two years for then-Secretary of State John Kerry to declare crimes against Yazidis, Christians, and Shiite Muslims genocide, and the United Nations as well.

Thousands of Yazidis remain missing, including at least 1,300 women and children, and the question of how to hold ISIS accountable for its unspeakable crimes remains unanswered.


Nadia is a lonely voice in the fight against ISIS genocide. After making the genocide designation, the Obama administration did little to hold ISIS accountable for its crimes or to alleviate the suffering of survivors. The Trump administration is trying to right those wrongs by providing aid to the most vulnerable victims of ISIS genocide, but a lot of work remains to be done.

“The world should bear its moral and legal responsibility and ensure its proper and fair accountability,” Nadia said as she accepted her Nobel Peace Prize. “The sexual violence and conflicts in our towns and cities must be stopped.”

It’s strange how women who self-identify as feminists get so worked up over unsubstantiated allegations of sexual assault, yet so callously overlook human rights injustices staring them in the face.

Imagine the difference these “feminists” could make if, in addition to banging on the doors of the U.S. Supreme Court, they also took a few minutes to bang at the doors of the United Nations.

In the #MeToo era, feminists are rightly concerned about women being heard. It appears that Nadia’s with them, too.

“My hope is that all women who speak about their stories of sexual violence are heard and accepted, that their voices are heard so they feel safe,” she said.

But Nadia’s story is falling on deaf ears. Because being “heard” requires others to listen.

Listening to a Nobel Peace Prize winner whose mission is to bring back life after being destroyed by sexual violence and war is the least feminists can do as the freest and most liberated women in the world.

Sure, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. There’s certainly no shortage of issues to debate. But it’s our job as feminists to look beyond ourselves and realize that Nadia’s fight is our fight, no matter what’s happening here in the U.S.

Racism, Sexual Assault Hypocrisy, & Mob Rule: The Planned Parenthood Approach

Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion company. It is also one of the most powerful liberal advocacy groups in the country.

That advocacy didn’t prevent Brett Kavanaugh from getting on the U.S. Supreme Court. But it did show corporate backers of Planned Parenthood that they are standing with racism, sexual assault hypocrisy, and mob rule.

Racism

This Tweet says it all, and the Rewire piece goes straight into wondering why white women aren’t dedicated supporters of liberal accusations of sexual assault and Democratic Party nominees named Hillary Clinton (no irony was included in the piece related to sexual assault accusations and the spouse of Hillary Clinton). The piece also says, “Throughout history, white women—including those who identify as feminists—have routinely thrown people of color under the bus to advance their own interests.”

Got it? White women are racist and self-interested, according to Planned Parenthood. (As opposed to Planned Parenthood, which uses half-a-billion taxpayer dollars to slaughter unborn babies for, what, altruism?) Additionally, white women allegedly vote how their husbands want them to.

To put it another way — Planned Parenthood and liberals at Rewire want women to make their own decisions, unless those decisions go against liberal preferences.

Hating Sexual Assault When It’s Convenient

According to Planned Parenthood when it retweeted NARAL, “we believe survivors.”

This is convenient for Planned Parenthood. During political campaigns and debates, it believes survivors. When it comes to their own abortion centers, Planned Parenthood has no problem covering up sexual assaultEven for those who abuse minors.

Mob Rule Instead of Republic Representation

Democracy has often been described as two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner. This is why America is a representative republic, with competing interests in our political system to ensure that the wolves don’t always agree — and, thus, Americans could be free.

Planned Parenthood appears to be ignorant of this basic piece of American history. Check out these Tweets, the last two which were retweeted by Planned Parenthood:

Putting Politics Ahead of America

We want to make two last points about Planned Parenthood’s actions here. First, in supporting the Women’s March organization, Planned Parenthood is aligned with an activist group which is so anti-conservative and so incompetent that its initial anti-Kavanaugh press release had “XX” instead of Kavanaugh’s name because it didn’t matter who President Trump nominated. The Women’s March organizers were always going to take this route of aggressive and unethical opposition.

More importantly, Planned Parenthood’s support for mob rule clearly only applies when in support of the abortion giant’s goals. It has supported so-called “buffer zones” across the country — here’s just one example — which prevent pro-life activists from using free speech to advocate against abortion.

Yet corporations continue to blindly stand with Planned Parenthood. This cannot continue. It is long past time for corporations to put their money towards hiring Americans instead of killing them, and towards giving raises instead of deadly political activism.


Help us continue holding corporations and non-profits accountable for their activism by becoming a 2ndVote Member today!

Democrats Use Hitler’s Propaganda Technique

Folks, I guess I should let this go. But, it still blows my mind that the American left is committed to branding Brett Kavanaugh, without a shred of evidence, a sexual predator for the rest of his life. That is incredibly, cold, calculating and evil.

Adolf Hitler said,

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

This propaganda technique has been embraced by the Democratic party. Here are three huge lies Democrats continue to invest billions worth of media to deceive the public. Big lie number one: America’s cops are racist and routinely murder blacks. Big lie number two: Trump colluded with Russia to steal the presidency from Hillary. Big lie number three: Brett Kavanaugh is a serial rapist.

Let’s address Democrats’ big lie that cops kill blacks for being black. Harvard professor Roland Fryer analyzed over 1,000 officer-involved shootings across the country. Fryer concluded that there is zero evidence of racial bias in police shootings. Inner-city black communities are plagued by criminals, not police.

In 2014, over 6000 blacks were murdered, more than all white and Hispanic homicide victims combined. These blacks were not killed by whites or cops. They were killed by other blacks.

Researching “deadly force” a study by Washington University’s Lois James revealed that police were less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed whites and Hispanics in similar threat scenarios. Federal crime stats show that 12% of whites and Hispanics who die by homicide are killed by cops. Only 4% of black homicide victims are killed by cops.

There is no government agency dedicated to protecting black lives more than the police. Proactive policing in the mid-1990s had a huge impact, bringing down the inner-city murder rate and saving tens of thousands of black lives. Democrats and leftists spread their lie that cops are racist which caused cops to back-off. This resulted in violent crime back on the rise and black lives lost. In cities with large black populations, homicides in 2015 rose from 54% to 90%

Immorally, Democrats, fake news media and Hollywood are still promoting the lie that black criminal Michael Brown was gunned-down by a racist white cop while trying to surrender with his hands up. Blood in the officer’s police car proved Brown was shot while assaulting the police officer inside his car. 

Leftists branding cops racist is a selfish evil scheme to keep blacks falsely believing they are victims in a forever racist America. Leftists’ message to blacks is voting for Democrats is blacks only hope of keeping racist white America at bay. A despicable Democrat get-out-the-vote campaign told black parents that they had better vote or send their elementary students to school wearing bullet proof vests to protect them from racist white police.

Black Lives Matter thugs, funded by George Soros and anti-America groups, continue to ambush and assassinate innocent police officers around the country because of Democrats’ lie that cops kill blacks because they are black.

Democrats’ big lie that Trump stole the presidential election via collusion with Russia. After two years of investigations, there is zero evidence supportive of this absurd Democrat lie. Democrats presented their lie in such a way to make voters believe Russia tampered with the counting of votes which is impossible. Fake news media, Democrats and Hollywood continue to promote their Trump-Russia-Collusion lie 24/7 for the past 2 years; believing American voters will come to believe it – making Trump’s presidency illegitimate.

Democrats’ big lie that conservative Brett Kavanaugh is a sexual predator/serial rapist. This huge lie pulled out of thin air by Democrats is particularly heinous and cruel. Throughout his 30 something year career, Kavanaugh passed seven FBI background checks with flying-colors. Dr Ford who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago does not remember the date, place and other crucial facts regarding her allegation.

And yet, Democrats, fake news media and Hollywood have decreed Kavanaugh guilty simply because this woman said so. Daily piling onto their outrageous allegations, Democrats sought to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the supreme court by branding him a drunk who experienced frequent blackouts in which he participated in group rapes. But get this folks, while these allegations against Kavanaugh are obviously false, Democrats will promote their Kavanaugh is a sexual predator/serial rapist lie for the rest of his life. How truly sick is that?

It bears repeating that leftists use liberal activist justices on the Supreme Court to force laws on voters against their will. Kavanaugh on the court will give conservatives a five to four majority. This is why leftists seek to destroy Kavanaugh, his wife and two daughters at any and all cost.

The mid-term elections are only weeks away. Clearly, Democrats’ big lies prove they are willing to sacrifice decency, morality and human lives in their depraved quest to win and maintain political power. Decent right-thinking Americans cannot possibly want Democrats in control of the peoples’ house and senate. The Democratic party has become the home of the ultra-left and demonically evil. It must be defeated. My fellow Americans, please vote Republican in the swiftly approaching mid-terms.

Democrats: The Party of Marx, Mao and Mohammed

On December 1, 2015 in a column titled “The neo-Democrat Party: Devout followers of Marx, Mao and Mohammed” I wrote:

Numerous writers and political pundits have written on President Obama’s pledge to “fundamentally transform America” when elected in 2008.

I believe what President Obama has truly done is fundamentally transformed the Democratic Party of JFK to the Democrat Party of BHO. I use the word Democrat because the Party of Obama is not Democratic, as envisioned by Thomas Jefferson. The membership of the neo-Democrat Party are made up primarily of the devout followers of Marx, Mao and Mohammed.

Those who oppose Obama and the neo-Democrat Party, including JFK Democrats, are subject to ridicule, rejection and bullying.

Extremism in the name of the collective is the over riding strategy of the neo-Democrat. Radicalism is the tactic. The more extreme the ideal, the more it is embraced. This leads to what some have labeled a form of political insanity. I call it political suicide. History teaches us that tyrants and tyranny ultimately lose the support of the masses. Why? Because the policies implemented harm the masses.

THE PARTY OF MARX, MAO AND MOHAMMED

In today’s Democrat Party we find a growing number of candidates and elected officials who are followers of Marx, Mao and Mohammed. You can name them from the follower of Mohammed Keith Ellison, to Socialists Bernie Sanders, Andrew Gillum, candidate for Governor of Florida, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

DECLASSIFIED reports:

The Communist Party USA explained plans on May 23 [2018] to subvert the Democratic Party, alongside socialist and communist organizations including Democratic Socialists of America, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, LeftRoots, and others. In some U.S. states, communist party members are barred from becoming elected officials, yet through this latest effort, democrats may unwittingly vote communists into office.

Pew Research Center found:

Muslims constitute a strongly Democratic [Party] constituency. Three-quarters of Muslim voters say they cast a ballot for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and two-thirds of U.S. Muslims overall say they disapprove of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president.

[ … ]

Fully two-thirds of U.S. Muslims identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party (66%). Far fewer say they are Republican or lean Republican (13%), while one-in-five say they prefer another party or are political independents and do not lean toward either major party. Muslim Americans’ partisan composition is little changed over the last decade, and they remain much more strongly Democratic than the public as a whole.

INTERSECTIONALITY

The Marxist, Maoist and Islamic Democrats have embraced “intersectionality” as their fundamental political strategy. Here is Ben Shapiro explaining what intersectionality really means:


Pew also noted how Muslims have embraced intersectionality stating:

There has, however, been one notable change in the social and political views of U.S. Muslims: They have become much more accepting of homosexuality over the past decade, matching a similar shift that has occurred among the public overall. Indeed, the share of Muslim Americans who say homosexuality should be accepted by society has nearly doubled since 2007.

Yet Islam condemns sodomy. Abu Dawud’s authoritative hadith collection records a report from Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done (38:4447).

This is intersectionality at work.

UNCONTESTED ABSURDITIES

Ayn Rand wrote:

“The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other – until one day when they are suddenly declared to be the country’s official ideology.”

Here are some of the absurdities that have become the official ideology of the Democrat Party:

  • The greatest national security threat is climate change (i.e. formerly global warming).
  • White Christian men are a greater threat than the Islamic State, Iran and the Black Lives Matter movement.
  • Spending on social programs is more important than spending on national security.
  • Engagement and dialogue with America’s enemies (i.e. Iran) is preferred to any form of confrontation.
  • Nationalized health care (the Affordable Care Act) is affordable.
  • Deficit spending is good for the economy and will create jobs.
  • Putting more Americans on the public dole is good for creating more government jobs.
  • Anyone who disagrees with the neo-Democrat Party policies is racist, homophobic, Islamophobic and a national security threat.
  • People don’t kill people, guns kill people (e.g. need to outlaw guns).
  • Public schools must teach children what to think, not how to think (i.e. Common Core).
  • Aborting the unborn and selling their body parts is noble.
  • Bigger government, more regulations and centralized powers and greater control over the behaviors of citizens is good.
  • Coal, oil and natural gas are evil.
  • Saving the planet is more important than saving the human race.
  • A weak America is good for world peace.
  • The Judeo/Christian God is dead.

CONCLUSION

The Democratic Party of JFK has morphed into the Democrat Party by dint of constant pressure from the radicals and the constant retreat of the Jeffersonian Democrats.

Today the Democrat Party has fundamentally transformed into the party of Marx, Mao and Mohammed.

It is a struggle between the civilized man and the uncivilized man (savage).

Florida Senator Bill Nelson used Hurricane Michael to fundraise and collect data for Democratic Party

In a Big League Politics article titled “Bill Nelson Fundraises Off A Hurricane As He Trails Rick Scott”   reports:

Florida Democratic Senator Bill Nelson has been caught fundraising off Hurricane Irma.

Nelson made a significant political mistake in a state that has been ravaged by natural disaster, indicating to some people that he is not sufficiently concerned with the plight of his constituents.

“That’s right — with one of the strongest storms of the century bearing down on Florida, these airlines were hiking up prices for those trying to escape,” Nelson said in an email to Floridians criticizing the airlines for price gouging during the storm (which was a very big problem for residents).

However, there was just one problem with Nelson’s email: he included a large campaign-fundraising button in the message below his criticism of the airlines.

The link in Senator Nelson’s email linked to ActBlue. ActBlue’s mission statement is to “empower small-dollar donors.” It is an independent software non-profit that has been used to raise over two billion dollars for Democrats and their causes since 2004.

According to ActBlue’s website, “5,599,593 Democratic donors have saved their payment information with us via an ActBlue Express account.

So Nelson is using a natural disaster to collect payment information from donors.

Google briefing says tech companies should abandon ‘American tradition’ of free speech

Google’s burying of material critical of Islam, along with Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube censorship of material that violates Sharia blasphemy laws, show that the “official Google source” that said that “the document should be considered internal research, and not an official company position” was lying. This is already being implemented on a massive scale. If it isn’t stopped, and these tech giants broken up, the First Amendment could soon be a dead letter, along with America as a free society.

“THE GOOD CENSOR: Leaked Briefing Says Google Must Move Away from ‘American Tradition’ of Free Speech to Expand Globally, Attract Advertiser $$$s,” by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart, October 9, 2018:

A leaked Google briefing titled “The Good Censor” advises tech companies to move away from the “American tradition” of free speech if they wish to attract advertising revenue and continue global expansion.

The briefing, leaked exclusively to Breitbart News, was the product of extensive research on the part of Google. This included expert interviews with MIT Tech Review editor-in-chief Jason Pontin, Atlantic staff writer and tech critic Franklin Foer, and academic Kalev Leetaru. 35 cultural observers and 7 cultural leaders from seven countries on five continents were consulted to produce it. It can be read in full here.

The 85-page briefing admits that Google and other tech platforms have fundamentally altered their policies in response to unwelcome political events around the world, including the 2016 election and the rise of Alternative für Deutschland in Germany.

Responding to the leak, an official Google source said the document should be considered internal research, and not an official company position.

Page 14 of the document acknowledges that a few Silicon Valley tech giants now “control the majority of our conversations,” but that these platforms – including Google – must now break their initial promise to users of free speech and content neutrality.

Pages 19-21 of the briefing describe this initial support for free speech as a “utopian narrative” that has been undermined by political events including the 2016 election and the rise of the populist AfD party in Germany.

Later, on pages 66-70, the briefing explains that tech companies including Google, Facebook and Twitter initially leaned towards an “American tradition” of free speech that prioritizes “free speech for democracy, not civility.”

But it goes on to say that the same companies now embrace the “European tradition,” that favors “dignity over liberty, and civility over freedom.”

Google, argues the briefing, must move towards the European tradition and create “well-ordered spaces for safety and civility” rather than “unmediated marketplaces of ideas.”

Doing so, says the briefing, will enable Google to “respond to regulatory demands” and “maintain global expansion,” as well as “monetize content through its organization” and “protect advertisers from controversial content,” both of which will “increase revenues.”…

The Left Lost on Kavanaugh, So Now They Want to Abolish the Senate

After every political defeat, the left seems to blame anyone but themselves. Instead, they lash out at our political institutions.

Whether it’s seeking to pack the Supreme Court, removing President Donald Trump from office by stretching the intent of the 25th Amendment, or calling on low-level bureaucrats to “resist” the president’s policies, the left has had no shortage of terrible ideas in the past year alone.

Given the level of rage following Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, it was no surprise that the left took aim at the fundamental framework of our constitutional system.

Many progressives are now blaming the Electoral College and the Senate for defeat because they aren’t democratic enough. Worse, they’ve claimed that these institutions were simply designed to protect slavery, which is an incorrect and absurd distortion of the truth.

Ken Norton, a Google executive, tweeted out that we should abolish the Senate after it became clear that Kavanaugh would be confirmed.

“Senators representing less than half the U.S. are about to confirm a nominee opposed by most Americans,” read a headline by The Washington Post’s Philip Bump, who wrote that the Senate violates the concept that “all men are created equal.”

These weren’t the only attacks on the role of the Senate.

The Electoral College has been under siege since 2016 when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton despite not winning the popular vote.

But the Founding Fathers didn’t intend for a national plebiscite to elect presidents. Instead, they wanted to preserve federalism by creating the best system of majority rule with a necessary protection of the minority.

This new criticism of the Senate falls on similar ground as the attacks on the Electoral College.

The left now portrays the Senate as a dark, Republican conspiracy—another vestige of slavery meant to keep Democrats down and out of power.

The Founders created the Senate for several reasons—no, not to promote slavery or ensure the Democratic Party couldn’t win in 2018. Instead, it was the result of a compromise and the desire to preserve the concept of federalism.

Representatives of small states worried that the interests of larger states would overwhelm them, large states wanted to base representation on population for obvious reasons. The solution, in part, was to create two branches of the legislature—one based on population and one that treats large and small states equally.

The Founders gave these bodies specific powers: the Senate would give advice and consent on executive branch nominees, and the House would control spending.

In this way, our system is mixed, with the House representing “democracy” and the Senate representing the equal power of states within a federal system. The Senate, as the smaller body with longer terms, could also act as the more tempered branch of Congress. This would be set against the more bumptious, tumultuous, and democratic House.

This hasn’t always been the case, but it does show how the Founders were always concerned about placing checks on power. They trusted the people to rule themselves, but feared their power to rule others. They did not want to replace one tyrant with millions of others.

It should be noted that the complaints over the “unfairness” of the Senate’s role confirming Supreme Court justices fails to take into consideration that the court itself—where justices serve for life or on good behavior—is a more or less undemocratic institution.

This was by design. The Founders wanted our government to have democratic elements—like the House—but did not think democracy was a good way to create good government or protect God-given rights, the basis of our constitutional system.

“[D]emocracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself,”wrote John Adams. “There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Beyond the intentions of the Founders, is there truth in the idea that this system is simply unfair to Democrats? There would perhaps be some validity to it if all small states were predominately Republican.

But the truth is that the composition of the Senate also helps states that are very small and very blue, like Connecticut and Rhode Island. Kyle Sammin explained in The Federalist how the Senate actually helps and hurts both parties and that the narrative that it only benefits Republicans is incorrect.

“[T]he focus on small states as Republican strongholds does not survive even the gentlest scrutiny,” Sammin wrote. “The senators from the 10 smallest states are nine Democrats, nine Republicans, and two independents who caucus with the Democrats. That’s an 11-9 split in Democrats’ favor.”

The fact is, bulldozing the Senate is an all-around bad idea. Worse, it would be more or less unconstitutional. Article V mandates that “no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”

The odds of small states sacrificing their power is virtually nil. The only real way to get rid of the Senate is if we essentially overthrew the Constitution—though it seems some on the far left wouldn’t have an issue with that these days.

In more practical terms we should be wary before we let poor losers upend our most valuable and enduring institutions for short-term political gain. That is how republics die and tyranny thrives.

Fortunately, our Founders had the foresight to create obstacles to such temporary madness from even the people themselves—barriers like the Senate.

Stanford University: Susan Rice’s Republican Son Assaulted by Leftist-Fascist

This incident is one of many recent indications of the fact that the increasingly authoritarian Left, having comprehensively lost the public debate, is more and more resorting to violence in order to intimidate those whom it hates into silence. Then, taking a page from their jihadist allies, Leftist thugs turn around and claim victimhood, as we see from the predictable piece in the egregious Stanford Daily, “Change my mind: SCR’s only concern with violence is how to use it,” by Justin Wilck.

In that article, young Wilck claims that the Stanford College Republicans, despite the fact that the violence was directed against them, and the additional fact that they have never called for violence or approved of violence, are the real violent ones. They did this also when Stanford student Hamzeh Daoud vowed to physically assault supporters of Israel on campus. It’s a total inversion of reality, and it’s ideologically based: these Stanford Leftists are so thoroughly indoctrinated that they think that if a victim of a crime is an ideological enemy, and the perpetrator a comrade, then the true victim must be the perpetrator, and the true evildoer the one who suffered the injury.

Instead of being taught how to think for themselves, evaluate evidence, and determine the truth and falsehood of an assertion, Stanford students are being taught that adherence to the Leftist ideology and all that matters, and those who dare to dissent can justifiably be physically assaulted as well as libeled.

And so Justin Wilck, in the time-honored fashion of the Stanford Daily, can’t talk about the Stanford College Republicans without including a lie about me: “Did SCR care last November when Robert Spencer published students’ personal information and his followers sent them threatening emails?” I did not, of course, publish any students’ personal information. In reality, I responded point-by-point to attack pieces, most of them loaded with libels about my work and my character, written and signed by Stanford students. If these students hadn’t wanted their names known, they should have written the pieces anonymously. But in a civilized world of genuine rational discourse, which is, of course, quite far from what takes place at Stanford today, those who disagree have discussions based on evidence, and one side doesn’t start whining that “personal information” was published if the other side responds to attacks.

This is, however, the level of discourse that one would expect from Stanford students today. My event there last November was forcibly disrupted by administrators and fascist students, and the Leftists there still crow about their destruction of the possibility of genuine discussion and free discourse. The Left doesn’t want discussion or debate. Leftists want to silence their foes, by violence if necessary. We see that in arenas small and large, from Melinda Hernandez’s assault of John Rice-Cameron here all the way to the Stalinist gulags. In Stanford, the next generation of gulag guards is being trained now.

“Susan Rice’s Republican Son Assaulted at Pro-Kavanaugh Event,” by Kristina Wong, Breitbart, October 10, 2018:

Stanford College Republicans said Tuesday that John David Rice-Cameron, its president and son of former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice, was assaulted that day at a event at Stanford University, where he is a sophomore.

“Today, SCR experienced the violent and totalitarian behavior of the unhinged Stanford left. During a ‘Change My Mind’ tabling event regarding the presumption of innocence and the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, SCR’s President was assaulted by Melinda Hernandez. A sophomore at Stanford, Hernandez approached our President, hit him in chest and forcefully pushed him back,” the group posted on Facebook.

“Our President is pressing full charges against Hernandez. Violence is completely unacceptable, and we will not allow anyone to get away with it. Throughout the day, our signs were vandalized and destroyed, and we will be posting more video and photos shortly. Stay tuned,” it said.

The group posted pictures, including of sheriff’s deputies on the scene and a torn up poster.

Later, the group posted video of three students attempting to vandalize the table the Stanford College Republicans had set up.

“In addition to having our President assaulted by the violent and unhinged Melinda Hernandez, SCR members were harassed at yesterday’s ‘Change My Mind’ table throughout the day. Leftists vandalized and destroyed our signs, threw paint and water at our members, and hurled insults and profanities for hours. This is the state of poltical discourse at Stanford University: defined by the violent and childlish [sic] antics of the unhinged left.”

Michael Cutler: Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner Says Illegal Immigration Contributes to Chicago Gun Violence

Former INS Agent Michael Cutler joins Dana Loesch to weigh in.

The Radical Left’s Sex Crimes Hypocrisy

The issue of sexual assault has become the latest focus for the leaders of the increasingly radical Democratic party.

Make no mistake, sexual assault is a terrible crime that may prove to be life-altering for the victim of such crimes and for members of the victim’s family.

However, the question that must be asked, is whether or not the Democrats really care about preventing sexual assault or in simply exploiting this horrific crime for political purposes.

Consider how so-called “Sanctuary Cities” shield aliens from detection and apprehension by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents including aliens who have been convicted of committing violent crimes that include sexual assault and rape that allow them to remain at large.

Sanctuary Cities are almost entirely the invention and creation of Democratic politicians.

While radical Democrats in the U.S. Senate desperately and viciously attacked Judge Kavanaugh for an alleged but utterly unsubstantiated sexual assault that purportedly occurred more than three decades ago, law enforcement officers on Long Island diligently went about their jobs to locate and apprehend an illegal alien from El Salvador, Ever Martinez Reyes (pictured above), an alleged violent rapist who is accused of raping a 36 year old woman on the lawn of her own house in Freeport, New York on September 28th of this year.

On October 6, 2018 a local television station, WPIX posted a news report about the case, Police arrest man accused of raping woman in Freeport.  The report concluded with these two sentences:

“I’ve been doing this a long time this is one of the most brutal rapes I have ever seen,” said Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas.

Police say Martinez Reyes is an illegal immigrant and was preparing to flee back to his native El Salvador when he caught.

That last sentence addresses an issue I have noted in many of my previous articles and even in some of my Congressional testimony over the years, that criminal aliens have a “trap door” that they may use to escape the “Long arm of the law.”  They have the ability to flee the United States and hide in their home countries where extradition bay be difficult if not impossible.

This provides foreign criminals with an advantage over law enforcement that American criminals don’t have and, in my experience, emboldens alien criminals who know that they can “get out of Dodge” when they commit crimes.

On October 6th the local CBS television station also posted an article about this case, Arrest Made In Violent Freeport Rape reporting that the attack on the 36 year old woman went on for approximately one hour during which She was allegedly knocked unconscious twice and suffered eye damage,   Her alleged assailant, Martinez Reyes has been charged with two counts of rape in the first-degree, two counts of sexual abuse and assault.

The CBS report noted:

Police describe Reyes as a day laborer/landscaper who did not know the victim with no prior criminal record. Investigators say he first came to the United States in 2010 at 16 after crossing the border in Texas. He was sent back and crossed the border again illegally in 2014.

The inexact language used by the reporters and police officers in describing immigration law violations underscores how immigration laws are ignored by all too many local law enforcement officers and prosecutors, thereby endangering public safety and national security.  What does the term “sent back” mean?  Was he ordered removed?

In point of fact, the expanding tactic for local, city and even some state governments to promulgate so-called “Sanctuary” policies all too frequently stymie law enforcement efforts by ICE agents to identify, locate, arrest and deport criminal aliens to effectively address the problem of recidivism.  This would help protect members of the ethnic immigrant communities where criminal aliens, from around the world, ply their criminal “trades.”

The stark reality is that Sanctuary Policies Protect Sex Offenderswhere victims are mere “speed bumps” on the road to anarchy.

The title of a frustrating recent report, States Enacted 116 Immigration Laws in 2018 It’s a slight decline from last year but still more than usual, shows how more and more jurisdictions are undermining border security and the integrity of the immigration system and, consequently, endangering public safety and national security.

Sanctuary policies may prohibit any sort of cooperation between those law enforcement entities and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to shield illegal aliens, including vicious criminals, from detection and removal from the United States by ICE agents.

As I noted in a recent article, Democrats’ Attack On Ice Agents Is Working (working to block border security and immigration law enforcement).

Meanwhile, there is irrefutable evidence that a nexus exists between Illegal Immigration And Crime.

News reports noted that Reyes was “sent back” but there is not clarity as to whether or not he was formally removed (deported) from the United States in 2010 per an order by an Immigration Judge.  He is alleged to have subsequently reentered the United States without authorization.

If his removal from the United States was the result of an order of removal, that act, of reentering after removal without authorization, in and of itself, would constitute a federal felony that carries a maximum of two years in prison under the provisions of 8 U.S. Code § 1326 – Reentry of removed aliens.  Under s section of that statute, aliens who have convictions for serious crimes face a maximum of 20 years in prison.

Aliens who had been previously deported and illegally reentered the U.S. would not only face jail tim[e], upon conviction. for crimes he/she may have committed upon returning illegally to the U.S., but could also face additional significant jail time for the crime of unlawful reentry.

Finally, such a criminal alien would then be deported from the United States.

These efforts would shield potential victims of such violent criminals who would be spending years in prison and then be removed from the United States.

Instead, sanctuary policies shield criminal aliens while endangering their potential victims.

However, none of the news accounts indicate that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) had been involved in the investigation and arrest of Ever Martinez Reyes.

Today the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States is greatly hobbled because of a number of factors beginning with the pitifully small number of ICE agents.  There are approximately 6,000 ICE agents throughout the entire United States.. Furthermore, these overwhelmed and beleaguered agents not only enforce our immigration laws but customs laws, intellectual property laws, narcotics laws, laws pertaining to financial crimes and even laws that focus on the production of kiddie porn along with many other laws that are irrelevant to the enforcement of our immigration laws.

While the Democrats have literally gone off the “deep end” Republican politicians are only marginally better.  The federal budget, for example, once again did not include funding for the border wall.

In fact, it is my belief that when President George W. Bush created the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in response to the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, rather than enhance border security and the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States, his actions did quite the opposite.

On May 5, 2005 I testified at a hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims on the topic, “New ‘Dual Mission’ Of The Immigration Enforcement Agencies.”  Of particular significance is the statement made by the then-chairman of that subcommittee, Rep. John Hostettler who, in part said in his prepared statement:

The Homeland Security Act, enacted in November 2002, split the former Immigration and Naturalization Service, or INS, into separate immigration service and enforcement agencies, both within the Department of Homeland Security. This split had been pursued by Chairman Sensenbrenner based on testimony and evidence that the dual missions of INS had resulted in poor performance.

Consider this additional excerpt from Chairman Hostettler’s testimony:

At no time during the reorganization planning was it anticipated by the Committee that an immigration enforcement agency would share its role with other enforcement functions, such as enforcement of our customs laws. This simply results in the creation of dual or multiple missions that the act sought to avoid in the first place.

Failure to adhere to the statutory framework established by HSA has produced immigration enforcement incoherence that undermines the immigration enforcement mission central to DHS, and undermines the security of our Nation’s borders and citizens.

The midterm elections are nearly upon us.  The Republicans must finally come to terms with what is in the best interests for America and Americans, effective immigration law enforcement that does more than pay “lip service” to the demands of the great majority of American citizens.

As I noted in a recent article, America Needs A Border Wall Like Houses Need Insulation.  Insulation, as any homeowner will tell you, pays for itself in short order.  Securing the U.S./Mexican border would save lives and billions of dollars annually in the terms of money flowing out of the United States from illegal aliens working in the United States and as a result of the drug trade.

The Republicans must provide Americans with a true alternative to the anarchy and calls to sedition by the radical Left even as more innocent people fall victim to criminal aliens that the Democrats sanctimoniously shield from ICE.

I Am One of the Over 800 Pages Purged from Facebook

Elizabeth Dwoskin Tony Romm in a column titled “Facebook purged over 800 accounts and pages pushing political messages for profit” reported:

Facebook said on Thursday [October 11, 2018] that it has purged more than 800 U.S. publishers and accounts for flooding users with politically oriented content that violated the company’s spam policies, a move that could reignite accusations of political censorship.

[ … ]

Facebook said it was not removing the publishers and accounts because of the type of content they posted but because of the behaviors they engaged in, including spamming Facebook groups with identical pieces of content, unauthorized coordination and using fake profiles.

To Deal with Leftists, Imagine You’re Confronting Satan

If you’re a conned-servative who gets sand thrown in your eyes, your kneecaps kicked off and slashed with a broken bottle and then still fights the next time by Queensberry rules, this article isn’t for you. But if you’re disturbed by the Left’s behavior these last years and want to know how to handle these people whose “mask has been dropping,” understand this: Behind that mask is the Devil.

If you’re not a person of faith, view this as a thought exercise. But it’s one connedservatives — those nice guys who always finish last — had better embrace fast. Because the behavior of what we call today’s “Left” and what Satan would prescribe are virtually identical.

Truth means nothing to leftists. The ends justify the means and they will literally say or do anything to achieve their aims. They’ll use violence — Antifa, BLM, rioting and attacking Trump supporters — and intimidation (doxxing public officials and confronting them in various public places) while calling conservatives fascists and blaming them for the unrest. They’ll rail against “racism” one moment and then excoriate a race (whites) the next. They’ll preach equality while practicing inequality and discrimination, as with quotas and affirmative action. They’ll claim to care about women victims (Kavanaugh/Ford affair) and then smear women victims (Rep. Keith Ellison case). They’ll say “Do it for the children,” using kids as human props, while abetting the brutal killing of children in the womb. They’ll preach tolerance but then insist this means “safe spaces” excluding conservatives and whites and that opposing views must be squelched. They’ll say it’s un-American to question election outcomes — as H. Clinton did prior to Nov. 8, 2016 — but upon losing scream how an election was “stolen,” as leftists did after Nov. 8, 2016. Theirs is the ideology of Anything Goes.

In fact, leftists will swear that Truth (properly understood as objective) itself doesn’t even exist, that everything is shades of gray — but then turn about and sing blatant black-white tunes portraying their political opponents as evil. This is similar to Satan, who knows that God’s rules exist but doesn’t believe they should be considered “Truth.” Leftists will superciliously scoff at traditionalists’ moral positions and insist everything is relative. But they really want to play God and have everything be relative to themselves — like the Devil.

One difference between leftists and Satan is that the latter knows God exists. That’s where the differences end. Leftists hate everything great and good: God, family, country and even the idea of countries (attacks on sovereignty). They hate religion, especially Christianity; the Church; marriage; sexual propriety; and anything else reflecting God’s plan. Thus, they not only hated the Boy Scouts before they became the Gender Fluid Scouts, but hate the idea that “boys” and “girls” even exist in any pure sense; they reject the message that “male and female He made them.” They hate virtues (good moral habits) and do violence — directly or indirectly — to every single one, be it faith, charity, chastity, honesty, diligence, temperance, kindness, humility, fortitude, justice or something else. They are the very negation of Norman Rockwell.

Leftists hate the Constitution, though they’ll use and misuse (twist) it to serve their ends. Of course, like Leon Trotsky, the Kronstadt sailors and so many other useful idiots, it will be discarded once leftists have enough power and its utility is no more. (Christine Blasey Ford, take note.) In fact, they would destroy civilization itself — and are currently doing so — to achieve power. They’d rather reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.

While leftists will usually deny the above, at certain times they obliquely acknowledge it. Consider how Democrat operative Scott Foval, caught in a 2016 sting operation stealing votes and inciting violence at Trump rallies, essentially admitted Republicans are more honest. “There is a level of adherence to rules on the other side that only when you’re at the very highest level, do you get over,” he said. Many leftists know they’re scum — and they’re content being scum.

They don’t put it in those terms, of course. But they live in an inverted (im)moral universe. They crave the con, love the lie, delight in deceit. They respect fellow travelers who can most effectively destroy their adversaries with artifice — or vanquish them with violence.

What does this mean for conservatives? First, stop being connedservatives. Know thy enemy. Oh, I know, connedservatives reject the idea of viewing “fellow Americans” as enemies. But that’s what Barack Obama called you, what the alt-Left leftists consider you and that’s what they are. Denying it only makes us sheep being led to the slaughter.

Second, know that you have to fight dirty — just like the other side. This doesn’t mean being immoral, but it does mean fighting fire with fire and playing for keeps. I’ll provide some examples.

I’ve long advocated nullification, which Thomas Jefferson called the “rightful remedy” for all federal overreach. For instance, the unconstitutional Obergefell v. Hodges marriage ruling in 2015 should simply have been ignored by the states. Connedservatives consider this radical and wrong, but what has the Left been doing for ages? What do you think “sanctuary” (lawless, actually) cities and resistance to federal drug law are? Nullification. California currently embodies this. The difference is that liberals don’t call it nullification. They just do it — and win.

Then there’s the matter of reclaiming the Supreme Court for constitutionalism. We should attempt this, and are. But when the leftists regain control over the legislative and executive branches, as they will one day, will they let “opinions” by unelected, black-robed lawyers impede them? They’re already talking about impeaching Justice Kavanaugh and one day packing the court.

Moreover, judicial supremacy is not in the Constitution, which is why I’ve long advocated the ignoring of unconstitutional rulings. Future leftists controlling Uncle Sam’s executive branch absolutely will do this, embracing Jefferson’s warning that accepting judicial supremacy makes our Constitution a felo de se — an “act of suicide.” The difference is that they’ll ignore even constitutional rulings contrary to their agenda.

In fact, it’s no surprise leftists hate the Founding Fathers: The former aren’t American in any real sense and aren’t suited to proper constitutional government. As President John Adams warned in 1798, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly in adequate to the government of any other.” However “moral and religious” we are today — and we are thus lacking — leftists assuredly are the “other.”

Additionally, a contract can only work if those subject to it abide by it. If one party consistently violates it to advantage itself and oppress the other party, however, the contract is rendered null and void. That is, at least until the violators are eliminated from the equation.

The other thing connedservatives must do is stop conserving yesterday’s leftists’ social and political victories. Connedservatives, for example, accept the Left’s immigration regime, which guarantees leftist-empowering demographic change. But demographics is destiny, and over the long term you can’t win elections while continuously importing the other side’s voters.

Connedservatives also too often accept elements of leftists’ isms (e.g., feminism), use their language — not just politically correct speech but also the vulgarity liberals have normalized — hew to yesterday’s leftists’ sexual mores, imbibe their entertainment and support their propaganda mills (i.e., universities). But since politics is downstream of culture, we ultimately can’t win the government if we embrace the Left’s abnormal social norms.

Lastly, don’t bend to their intimidation. If they call you a “racist,” respond with the truth: “You’re the ‘racist,’ as you only level that accusation because I’m white.” React correspondingly to “sexism” charges, remembering that the best defense is a good offense. Take the fight to them, give no quarter and take no prisoners.

So, connedservatives, stop being conned. One of the Left’s tactics, outlined in its devilish “bible” Rules for Radicals (dedicated to Lucifer), is to get the other side (us) to live up to its own rules. And fighting by Queensberry rules only guarantees a knock-out because the Devil knows no limits. The Left has one guiding “principle,” articulated many years ago by occultist Aleister Crowley: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”
