Foul Play to Silence Patton

By: Janet Levy | American Thinker

U.S. Army General George S. Patton, renowned for strategic military prowess and leadership, led World War II troops into Casablanca, Sicily, and France; relieved Allied forces at the Battle of the Bulge, and drove deep into Nazi Germany.  Patton was equally renowned for his no-holds-barred opinions, colorful attire, profanity-laced speeches, and disregard for orders he thought ineffective, all of which did not sit well with the Allied high command.

The new “must see” film, Silence Patton, suggests that the general’s premature death in a mysterious auto accident may have been orchestrated to silence this oversized, historic personality.  Written and directed by Robert Orlando, the film uses documentary footage, direct quotes, and interviews with historians to ask whether Patton’s forthrightness, outspoken judgments, and criticism of battlefield leadership may have led to assassination.  Robert Wilcox, an investigative and military reporter, voiced the same theory in this 2008 book, Target Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton.  

In Silence Patton, Orlando presents a non-lionized, realistic portrayal of a consummate yet flawed warrior, whose personal qualities often hindered him from obtaining the necessary orders to execute his desired military strategies.  The film opens with a re-enactment of the accident in which an Army truck struck the car Patton was riding in, leaving him paralyzed and near death.  The image of a dying Patton looms large throughout the film, which examines his impressive yet controversial military career and the suspicions surrounding his end.

Is the Mueller Report the Son of the Steele Dossier?

By: Diana West | The Epoch Times | Gulag Bound

Catch the news, Seth Rich

Hesitant about working my way through the Mueller report, I found myself gratified to hear Rep. Devin Nunes’s assessment of the thing.

According to Nunes, there is only one item of relevance in the entire 450-page document. While it is an item of significance, it confirms something many have long suspected.

Nunes explained that on page 11 there is a veiled disclosure to the effect that the “scope memo,” the directive Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Special Counsel Robert Mueller in August 2017, included “the Steele dossier, the Clinton dirt, the Clinton-paid-for dirt as part of the memo for the special counsel that directed the special counsel what to do.”

Army’s Wish List Against China/Russia

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It appears some real strategic thinking and application is happening here and that is a good thing. These lists for more reconnaissance aircraft are a good thing for sure.

Russia's Hybrid Warfare Strategy • Full Version

U.S. Army leaders revealed Tuesday that they are briefing top military commanders about new weapons being built specifically for “high-intensity conflict” against China and Russia, in a new effort to assure that they could provide vital firepower for those potential battlefields of the future.

THE VATICAN DEAL: Made in China

By: Elizabeth Yore | The Remnant

THE VATICAN DEAL: Made in China         

A bad beginning makes for a bad ending.” ~Chinese Proverb

Before the ink was dry on the September 22, 2018 Vatican-China secret agreement, the Chinese government initiated its demolition derby by targeting Christian churches and their faithful. The Chinese Communist Government thugs ratcheted up a coordinated pogrom of demolishing, seizing, and closing Christian Churches. The first targets for destruction by the authorities were two Catholic Marian shrines in Shanxi and Guizhou. Government goons stripped crucifixes from church facades, and began to round up and imprison faithful underground Catholics, priests and bishops. Leave it to the Chinese to monetize their terror campaign: The government is offering cash for neighbors to spy on churches.

Some detente, Pope Francis! No wonder the details of the deal are still secret.

The three-part deal sought to clarify the manner of episcopal appointments, with the atheistic regime appointing bishops that were then approved by the Vatican, the status of the seven illegitimate bishops and the future of the faithful “underground” Catholic Church. Incredibly, the Vatican agreement with China allows the communist-controlled Chinese “Catholic” Patriotic Association (CPA) to nominate Catholic bishops and instructs the Underground Church to unite with it.

Not All of Central America is Desperate, But The Northern Triangle Is

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Belize and Costa Rica are thriving. Tourism for Belize is the top economic earner, then comes sugar and citrus production. The country enjoys an estimated annual growth of 2.5%. Costa Rica also has a strong economy with almost 4% annual growth and both countries have foreign investors.

So when it comes to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, they are among the poorest countries in the region. Seems those countries maintain an 85% poverty rate. The SOUTHCOM  Commander, Navy Admiral Craig Faller was in the region in January for a week visit to the three countries discussing security cooperation with emphasis on training, counter-drug missions and humanitarian operations. The United States maintains flight operations that track, detect and monitor all vehicles and crafts for illicit drug trafficking.

USAID has these cockamamie work plans in the region that promote prosperity. That includes securing borders, increasing economic and business opportunities and stopping corruption. How is that working out? Just skim this document for context.

USAID gives $181 million to Honduras annually. Guatemala receives $257 million while El Salvador accepts $118 million. But hold on that is not all. We also have this other U. S. organization called Millennium Challenge. This is yet another cockamamie operation designed to partner with countries worldwide to promote growth and lift people out of poverty while investing in future generations through education.

Under the Hillary Clinton and John Kerry State Departments, Millennium Challenge has these workshops. Read more at the link.

Preezy Candidates Gillibrand and Buttigieg, What?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

We already know about Bernie Sanders praising Fidel Castro and the communist takeover of Nicaragua. Yet, he still seems to appeal to the millennial class while enjoying their campaign contributions. This demonstrates the failure of the education system for decades. Okay, so how about Kirsten Gillibrand and Pete Buttigieg?

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: “If We Are Not Helping People, We ...

Gillibrand: 

BuzzFeed reported Tuesday that the New York senator will endorse a new report recommending steps to reduce the racial wealth divide, including policies such as a commission to study slavery reparations.

“A draft of the report, titled ‘Ten Solutions to Bridge the Racial Wealth Divide,’ will be jointly released this week by the Institute for Policy Studies, the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition,” they report. Gillibrand told BuzzFeed News that she was “proud” to support the document.

One of the organizations Gillibrand is “proud” to partner with, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), was infamous during the Cold War for its defense of Communist governments and for its kneejerk support of the Soviet line.

Emory Professor and preeminent historian of American Communism Harvey Klehr dedicated an entire chapter of his book “Far Left of Center” to the IPS, which he characterized as “an intellectual nerve center for the radical movement, providing sustenance and support for a variety of causes, ranging from nuclear and anti-intervention issues to support for Marxist insurgencies.”

“IPS fellows have consistently maintained that the Soviet threat is largely non-existent and a product of the military-industrial complex,” he wrote. Klehr detailed how IPS fellows’ partnered with Soviet-funded “peace” organizations, defended USSR and Vietnam from charges of human rights abuses, defended the Sandinistas and other Latin-American terrorists, and denied the existence of the Cambodian genocide, even as two million people died.

Former Communist spy and defector Ladislav Bittman likewise wrote in his seminal book “The KGB and Soviet Disinformation” that the Soviets were “particularly interested” in IPS, whose “nucleus” was composed of “researchers and scholars with Marxist perceptions that Soviet foreign and military policies pose no threat to Western democracies.” More here.

Swell, eh? Okay how about lil’ ole’ Pete Buttigieg?

Peter Buttigieg emerges as Democratic 'rock star ...

Well, he was groomed politically by his father, a Marxist. Yep…

Buttigieg:  

The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.

Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel’s more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist.

He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory,” and a member of the editorial collective of Boundary 2, a journal of postmodern theory, literature, and culture. He spoke at many Rethinking Marxism conferences and other gatherings of prominent Marxists.

In a 2000 paper for Rethinking Marxism critical of the approach of Human Rights Watch, Buttigieg, along with two other authors, refers to “the Marxist project to which we subscribe.”

In 1998, he wrote in an article for the Chronicle of Higher Education about an event in New York City celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Manifesto. He also participated in the event.

“If The Communist Manifesto was meant to liberate the proletariat, the Manifesto itself in recent years needed liberating from Marxism’s narrow post-Cold War orthodoxies and exclusive cadres. It has been freed,” he wrote. More here.

So, now you have a head start on 3 of the candidates for President. How about choosing to do a few others and see what you will find. Here is a tip, Kamala Harris’ father, Donald, a Professor Emeritus of Economics at Stanford straddles between socialism and Marxism himself.

Anyone Fretting over the Real Russian Hacking from the Mueller Report?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Remember the timeline, it was the Comey FBI, the Brennan CIA, the Lynch Department of Justice and the Obama White House. So, Obama only expelled a pile of Russians and closed 3 dachas. Remember? When the dust settles just a little, President Trump has some work to do to clean up this hacking mess via Russia. Congress has some work to do also by defining some kind of hacking legislation.

The Mueller Report’s conclusions about Russian operations are unambiguous: the GRU’s Unit 26165 did the hacking, and the Internet Research Agency managed the influence campaign. The Report also concluded that the GRU’s Unit 74455 retailed the results of the doxing through its subsidiaries DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, and through a sympathetic WikiLeaks.

What is Unit 26165, Russia's elite military hacking centre?
Boris Zilberman on Twitter: "DOJ indictment against the ...

At one point, the Russians used servers located in the U.S. to carry out the massive data exfiltration effort, the report confirms.

Much of the information was previously learned from the indictment of Viktor Borisovich Netyksho, the Russian officer in charge of Unit 26165. Netyksho is believed to be still at large in Russia.

The operatives working for the Russian intelligence directorate, the GRU, sent dozens of targeted spearphishing emails in just five days to the work and personal accounts of Clinton Campaign employees and volunteers, as a way to break into the campaign’s computer systems.

The GRU hackers also gained access to the email account of John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, of which its contents were later published.

Using credentials they stole along the way, the hackers broke into the networks of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee days later. By stealing the login details of a system administrator who had “unrestricted access” to the network, the hackers broke into 29 computers in the ensuing weeks, and more than 30 computers on the DNC.

The operatives, known collectively as “Fancy Bear,” comprised several units tasked with specific operations. Mueller formally blamed Unit 26165, a division of the GRU specializing in targeting government and political organizations, for taking on the “primary responsibility for hacking the DCCC and DNC, as well as email accounts of individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign,” said the Mueller report.

The hackers used Mimikatz, a hacking tool used once an intruder is already in a target network, to collect credentials, and two other kinds of malware: X-Agent for taking screenshots and logging keystrokes, and X-Tunnel used to exfiltrate massive amounts of data from the network to servers controlled by the GRU. Mueller’s report found that Unit 26165 used several “middle servers” to act as a buffer between the hacked networks and the GRU’s main operations. Those servers, Mueller said, were hosted in Arizona — likely as a way to obfuscate where the attackers were located but also to avoid suspicion or detection.

In all, some 70 gigabytes of data were exfiltrated from Clinton’s campaign servers and some 300 gigabytes of data were obtained from the DNC’s network.

Meanwhile, another GRU hacking unit, Unit 74455, which helped disseminate and publish hacked and stolen documents, pushed the stolen data out through two fictitious personas. DCLeaks was a website that hosted the hacked material, while Guccifer 2.0 was a hacker-like figure who had a social presence and would engage with reporters.

Under pressure from the U.S. government, the two GRU-backed personas were shut down by the social media companies. Later, tens of thousands of hacked files were funneled to and distributed by WikiLeaks .

Mueller’s report also found a cause-and-effect between Trump’s remarks in July 2016 and subsequent cyberattacks.

“I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” said then-candidate Trump at a press conference, referring to emails Clinton stored on a personal email server while she headed the State Department. Mueller’s report said “within approximately five hours” of those remarks, GRU officers began targeting for the first time Clinton’s personal office.

More than a dozen staffers were targeted by Unit 26165, including a senior aide. “It is unclear how the GRU was able to identify these email accounts, which were not public,” said Mueller.

Mueller said the Trump campaign made efforts to “find the deleted Clinton emails.” Trump is said to have privately asked would-be national security advisor Michael Flynn, since convicted following inquiries by the Special Counsel’s office, to reach out to associates to obtain the emails. One of those associates was Peter Smith, who died by suicide in May 2017, who claimed to be in contact with Russian hackers — claims which Mueller said were not true.

Does that implicate the Trump campaign in an illegal act? Likely not.

“Under applicable law, publication of these types of materials would not be criminal unless the publisher also participated in the underlying hacking conspiracy,” according to Elie Honig, a CNN legal analyst. “The special counsel’s report did not find that any person associated with the Trump campaign illegally participated in the dissemination of the materials.”

Truth and the Ability to Speak It Under Direct Attack

By: Jim Simpson | Center For Security Policy

The common complaint that “free speech” should be protected, even when it’s ugly, implicitly accepts the Left’s argument that we are trying to protect the First Amendment rights of Nazis, White Supremacists, and others with a bad smell. But it really isn’t about protecting free speech. The Left and their Muslim allies can and do say anything they want, no matter how malodorous, obscene, dishonest, misleading or defamatory, and get away with it every day. It is about truth vs a totalitarian agenda, and the despots want to shut us up.

The attack that claimed fifty lives at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand brought immediate, predictable responses from Democrat politicians, the media, the organized Left and Muslim groups. Commenters from CNN to New York Mayor Bill De Blasio blamed “intolerance, “an epidemic of hatred and fear,” and other shibboleths.[1] Presidential hopeful Cory Booker blamed “The rising tide of white supremacy and Islamophobia…”[2] Virtually all placed some blame on Trump. Nihad Awad, director of The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), blamed President Trump directly, “We hold you responsible for this growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the country and in Europe…”[3]

The timing of the attack couldn’t have been better. A real cynic might even suspect it was part of the plan.[4] Rush Limbaugh speculated on his show the day after the attack, “You can’t immediately discount this. The left is this insane, they are this crazy.”[5]

Right to Know: A Historical Guide to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Ammo.com

Historical Guide to the Freedom of Information Act


Information has taken on a whole new meaning in the digital age, a time when sensitive data is either too easily accessible or not accessible enough. This issue of access to information encompasses fundamental human rights – specifically the freedom of speech as well as the right to privacy. Because it’s a primary means of maintaining transparency and accountability within government policies and decision-making in both the United States and around the globe, information is more valuable than ever to both government agencies and our individual lives. This guide takes an in-depth look at FOIA history and the importance of exercising your right to know.

International Right to Know Day: September 28th

September 28th marks International Right to Know Day. What began as a meeting between freedom of information organizations from 15 countries in 2002, has expanded to a global observance supported by more than 200 organizations worldwide. Each year, International Right to Know Day seeks to make people aware of the distinct rights they have to access government information that is essential to “open, democratic societies in which there are full citizen empowerment and participation in government.” Within the United States, those rights come in the form of the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA.

Freedom of Information Act

July 2016, marked not only FOIA’s golden 50-year anniversary, a milestone in Americans’ rights to scrutinize government agency records, but also the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016. Together, they remind us that FOIA’s guarantee of access to information was not easily acquired – nor was it a legally binding right. In fact, FOIA’s very creation was highly controversial. And since it has passed, its implementation and execution have continued to present challenges of their own.

Reminder: Trump is Only Human

By: Lloyd Marcus

Despite a billion dollars’ worth of negative press to destroy Trump before he was elected — over 500,000 lying articles claiming that Trump colluded with Russia and the Deep State’s $30-million illegal investigation, Trump has miraculously survived.  Incredibly, Trump has stayed on offense, laser-focused on making America great again.  The treasonous anti-Trump coalition is frustrated, hatefully consumed with creating Kryptonite to take down this political Superman.

While he has performed like a man of steel, Trump is only human.  Ninety-two percent of media reporting on Trump is negative.  How much abuse can this man take?  It is vitally important that We the People assure President Trump that we have his back.  Tea Party Express launching “Tea Party for Trump” is divinely timed

Sarah Palin was a conservative warrior, an answer to the prayers of Christians, conservatives, and Republicans.  I still remember the joy and excitement I felt hearing Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech to run as John McCain’s vice president.  Palin was bright, bold, and beautiful, unembarrassed to stand up for principles and values that have made America great.

Title III vs. Cuba for Cuban Exiles, About Time

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

There is a provision of the Cuban trade embargo that no U.S. president has ever used. President Trump has decided to be the first, according to White House officials. But it’s far from clear if it will do much to dislodge the island’s communist government.

It’s called Title III. It allows Americans – in this case mostly Cuban-Americans – to use U.S. federal courts to sue foreign companies that do business in Cuba on property taken from them by the Castro revolution.

Conservative Cuban exiles insist President Trump’s activation of Title III (part of the 1996 Helms-Burton Act that tightened the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba) will have a chilling effect on foreign investment in Cuba – particularly for European and Canadian companies. That, they insist, will undermine the island’s economically failing regime.

N. Korea Test Fires Tactical Weapon

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

(Reuters) – Satellite images from last week show movement at North Korea’s main nuclear site that could be associated with the reprocessing of radioactive material into bomb fuel, a U.S. think tank said on Tuesday. The U.S. State Department declined to comment on intelligence matters, but a source familiar with U.S. government assessments said that while U.S. experts thought the movements could possibly be related to reprocessing, they were doubtful it was significant nuclear activity.

SEOUL, April 18 (Yonhap) — North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has supervised a test-firing of a new tactical guided weapon, calling its development an “event of very weighty significance” in beefing up its military power, state media reported Thursday.

The Korean Central News Agency said the test happened Wednesday but did not specify what the newly developed weapon was. It was the first time since November the North’s leader has overseen a weapons testing.

I take this woman . . .

By: Tabitha Korol


Screenshot of short movie “Submission Pt. 1” By Ayaan Hirsi & Directed By Theo van Gogh

The Internet provides everything you’d want to know about courtships, weddings, married life, but few of them include the instructions on wife-beating. There is a brief but enlightening film, produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and posted on Jihad Watch, of a Muslim sociologist who demonstrates the “proper” wife-beating technique.  Of course, the sociologist assures his audience that Islam is merciful, and that the man, the head of the household, should not have to beat his wife every day, and to do so lightly, never to hit her face or head, bruise, break bones or cause blood to flow (m10:12, Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law – ROTT).  But the cautionary statement rings hollow when the wife’s bruises will never be seen because she must be covered from head to toe. And, should she become inured to the discipline’s sameness, there are other means of control and punishment available to him, all sanctioned by The Religion of Peace.  

When is it necessary to beat one’s wife? The sociologist did posit that there are women who prefer domineering, authoritative, and even violent husbands. For the most part, however, beatings are needed when the wife has disobeyed him and the strict Islamic rules of marriage.  She may have refused to wear a hijab (m:2:7-8, ROTT) or the finery he chose for her; or fancied attending school with the hope of one day having a career and earning a wage. She may have wanted to leave the house unaccompanied or without her husband’s permission; she is literally under house arrest.  

The Shari’a marriage contract contains her virginity status, the dowry amount, and grants sexual intercourse rights to the male, giving him total control over his wife or wives. Should she refuse his advances, be too ill or too young to have sex, or if she engaged in sex with another man or was raped, he could stop her daily (financial) maintenance. The woman is considered a she-devil, equal to a domestic animal, harmful and with crooked character. Therefore, he may disallow her to sleep in his bed; or lock her in a room, naked, and without food. Should he choose to enact a simple divorce by repeating “I divorce you” three times – she may receive no more than three months’ maintenance and could lose her children older than age seven.

Why are police and sheriff departments increasingly afraid to have their officers and deputies trained in the truth about Islam?

Why are we apparently in a period of pause in terrorist attacks here in America? How does the occasional terrorist attack benefit the Muslim Brotherhood in its infiltration of our local and state governments as well as federal government?

A few years ago, France had closed down between 100 and 160 mosques in which military grade weapons were found. Why would mosques have such weapons and can one expect that this is a practice in America?

Debunking ‘Nationalism’ as an Epithet: The Case for Trump, by Hanson — Minus ‘America First?’

DianaWest.net

This is not a review of Victor Hanson’s book, The Case for TrumpRather, it is a passing comment on the treatment of “America First” in Hanson’s case for Trump.

In discussing Trump’s counter-revolutionary (my term) “America First” vision, Hanson writes:

Yes, Trump’s America First vision triggered “the charge of isolationism” (not to mention apoplexy) from the Left, the Republican Establishment, sundry “progressives” and new world order types. All of the above had varyingly dominated American politics in the decades since World War II, pushing the country ever farther off of its foundations as a nation-state into the global system, whose institutional bases were, after all, established by a pair of Soviet agents, Alger Hiss (United Nations) and Harry Dexter White (IMF). Certainly, to these same globalists, it is safe to say that “the charge of isolationism,” as Hanson writes, “only cemented the slur against Trump,” which was spawned by vague but distasteful notions of “sullied” Lindbergh, as Hanson writes, and the America First Committee. It’s notable that Hanson, the Trump case-maker, seems to share this outlook.

Indeed, he repeats their standard smears of Lindbergh and, by extension, the America First Committee. Why was Lindbergh “sullied”? Lindbergh, Hanson tells the reader, was “at best” silent as Hitler and Mussolini rose. “At worst,” he was a conspiracy theorist who blamed “international Jewry” and “British monarchists” for our entry into World War II.

Hackers Breach FBI Websites

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Hacked material included names, addresses, job descriptions, and the email addresses of at least 3 FBI owned websites. Apparently, the hackers have been working this mission since 2014.

FBI data leaked

See complete details here.

A hacker group has breached several FBI-affiliated websites and uploaded their contents to the web, including dozens of files containing the personal information of thousands of federal agents and law enforcement officers, TechCrunch has learned.

The hackers breached three sites associated with the FBI National Academy Association, a coalition of different chapters across the U.S. promoting federal and law enforcement leadership and training located at the FBI training academy in Quantico, VA. The hackers exploited flaws on at least three of the organization’s chapter websites — which we’re not naming — and downloaded the contents of each web server.

The hackers then put the data up for download on their own website, which we’re also not naming nor linking to given the sensitivity of the data.

The spreadsheets contained about 4,000 unique records after duplicates were removed, including member names, a mix of personal and government email addresses, job titles, phone numbers and their postal addresses. The FBINAA could not be reached for comment outside of business hours. If we hear back, we’ll update.

TechCrunch spoke to one of the hackers, who didn’t identify his or her name, through an encrypted chat late Friday.

“We hacked more than 1,000 sites,” said the hacker. “Now we are structuring all the data, and soon they will be sold. I think something else will publish from the list of hacked government sites.” We asked if the hacker was worried that the files they put up for download would put federal agents and law enforcement at risk. “Probably, yes,” the hacker said.

The hacker claimed to have “over a million data” [sic] on employees across several U.S. federal agencies and public service organizations.

It’s not uncommon for data to be stolen and sold in hacker forums and in marketplaces on the dark web, but the hackers said they would offer the data for free to show that they had something “interesting.”

Unprompted, the hacker sent a link to another FBINAA chapter website they claimed to have hacked. When we opened the page in a Tor browser session, the website had been defaced — prominently displaying a screenshot of the encrypted chat moments earlier.

The hacker — one of more than ten, they said — used public exploits, indicating that many of the websites they hit weren’t up-to-date and had outdated plugins.

In the encrypted chat, the hacker also provided evidence of other breached websites, including a subdomain belonging to manufacturing giant Foxconn. One of the links provided did not need a username or a password but revealed the back-end to a Lotus-based webmail system containing thousands of employee records, including email addresses and phone numbers.

Their end goal: “Experience and money,” the hacker said.

Daraka Larimore-Hall and Marxist Followers Set to Take Over California Democratic Party

The California Democratic Party (CDP) is undergoing heavy infiltration by the United States’ largest Marxist group, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Working with the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and other socialist groups, the DSA looks likely to capture both the party chairmanship and a significant number of Central Committee seats at the upcoming CDP state convention held from May 31st to June 2nd, 2019, in San Francisco.

The DSA has exploded from around 6,000 members in 2016 to almost 60,000 dues-paying members today. A huge influx of new members—some already Democratic Party activists and officeholders—has empowered the DSA to infiltrate and often capture local Democratic Party branches in virtually every state.

The Destruction of Citizen Cain

By: Lloyd Marcus

In 2016, black businessman extraordinaire Herman Cain terminated his run for the presidency due to allegations of sexual misconduct.  Cain chose to protect his family from the humiliation of enduring leftists’ attempt to destroy a black conservative Republican.

It is unfortunate that negative press was many black Americans’ national introduction to Herman Cain.  When Cain dropped out of the presidential race, his accusers magically disappeared.  Now that Trump has chosen Cain for the Federal Reserve Board, the allegations have resurfaced to block his appointment.

Folks, we cannot continue allowing leftists to hypocritically use this tactic to disqualify good people.  When President Bill Clinton was committing adultery with an 18-year-old intern in the White House, Democrats and fake news media said, “So what?  That is Clinton’s private life, which is none of our business.”  In response to credible women accusing Clinton of sexual abuse, including rape, leftists branded the women trailer-trash sluts and liars.  Let us not forget the Bimbo Eruption Squad, headed by Hillary Clinton, purposed to destroy all the women who might go public with their sexual misconduct encounters with Bill Clinton.

Western Communists Celebrate Revolution in China

The Chinese Communist Party is increasingly asserting its role as the leader of the international communist movement.

In February and March, 22 communists from the United States, Canada, the UK, Finland, Norway, and Sweden spent two weeks visiting Zhejiang Province and Beijing.

“The visit was organized by the International Department of the Communist Party of China (IDCPC) to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China,” according to the Communist Party USA’s publication People’s World.

Their itinerary was reminiscent of the Stalin-era tours when credulous wide-eyed Western communists swallowed state-generated statistics extolling the fantastic productive capacity of Russian collective farms and factories and the never-ending improvements in the lives of socialist workers.

You Afraid of Cryptocurrency?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It is a new term for alternative tangibles or intangibles of value but they have been around for centuries. Perhaps we are just fearing the unknown or rogue/fraudulent activities in instruments of value and the volatility of that value. Okay, that part is a good thing for sure. But give competition what it deserves, a chance.

What is cryptocurrency?

John Berlau did an exceptional job with this summary and after having an extended chat with Mr. Berlau, there is more to come on the topic. Meanwhile, enjoy his synopsis. Your comments are invited.

Cryptocurrency and the SEC’s Limitless Power Grab

Why Speculative Consumer Goods Are Not “Securities”

Many questions are being asked about cryptocurrency. Is it a major innovation that will improve standards of living in ways we cannot yet imagine? Or is it a trendy phenomenon that will result in a speculative bubble of volatile assets? The answer to these questions may be: both of the above. New technologies have often produced bubbles that result in large disruptive busts. But after the bubble has burst and the dust has settled, the benefits of the innovation survive and lead to new, unforeseen benefits.

Is China an Adversary of the United States?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Yes, and frankly, we should completely reconsider any trade agreements in total with China. The whole launch of a harmonious relationship between the United States and China established by President Nixon in 1972 is not today’s condition. China is hostile to not only the United States but to any country frankly for the sake of money, China needs it by any and all means possible.

Exclusive: Secret NSA Map Shows China Cyber Attacks on U.S ...

China is using ‘debt traps’ effectively to financially punk foreign governments to gain power, influence, and assets.

  • China is working to influence media outlets beyond its borders in an effort to impose its ideology and deter criticism of its actions, a press freedom group said. In a report released Monday, Reporters Without Borders detailed what it said was China’s impact on a global decline in press freedom and analyzed President Xi Jinping’s strategy to control information outside his own country. The group found that Beijing was using advertising buys, paid-trips for journalists and an expanding global propaganda network to impose its “ideologically correct” terminology and to obscure darker chapters of the country’s history.
  • Huawei has been a theft and spy operation for decades. A major concern and consequence is a renewed U.S. campaign to pressure and persuade America’s allies to keep Huawei technology and equipment out of the next generation of wireless networks, known as 5G. The stakes in this campaign are much bigger than U.S. market share or the effectiveness of Iran sanctions. If Huawei’s chips and routers find their way into this new network, everything from digital privacy to intellectual property could be at risk.
  • Chinese employees stole corporate secrets from Dutch semiconductor equipment maker ASML, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in losses, Dutch financial newspaper Financieele Dagblad (FD) reported on Thursday. The paper said, citing its own investigation, technology had been stolen by high-level Chinese employees in the research and development department of ASML’s U.S. subsidiary and ultimately leaked to a company linked to the Chinese government.
  • That Chinese worker employed by that farm in Iowa is likely a spy, performing agricultural/intellectual property theft.
  • China has and continues to infect the American education system. It is called the Confucius Institute. It ranges from Kindergarten to graduate school. China has already spent $200 million USD on this effort. So, the Senate held a hearing. Legislation? Still waiting.
  • U.S. government contractors hired by China to be a hacker, perform espionage or to steal technology. Examples are herehere and here.

Tea Party for Trump

By: Lloyd Marcus

It is exciting that my patriot brothers and sisters at Tea Party Express have announced the launch of “Tea Party for Trump.”  My first tour on Tea Party Express in 2008 led to me speaking and performing my “American Tea Party Anthem” at over 500 rallies on several national bus tours.

The launch of “Tea Party for Trump” feels similar to the Blues Brothers saying: “We’re getting the old band back together again because we’re on a mission from God.”  My fellow patriots, “Tea Party for Trump” is our mission from God to reelect our remarkable president.

The Amazing Whistle Stop

Our Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight, Nevada featuring Sarah Palin drew 25,000 people.  Our rally in Boston drew 19,000.  The most memorable rally for me was not a scheduled rally.  After completing a rally, our tour bus headed to the next scheduled rally in Memphis, Tennessee.  A staffer received a phone call requesting that we make a brief whistle stop so around 50 people could meet our team of speakers and entertainers.

America’s Sovereign States: The Obscure History of How 10 Independent States Joined the U.S.

Ammo.com

Sovereign States of America: The History of 10 Independent States & How They Joined the U.S.

It is often said that before the Civil War, the United States “are,” but after the War, the United States “is.” This is a reference to the formerly theoretically sovereign nature of each state as compared to “one nation, indivisible.”

More than just the theoretic sovereignty of the individual states, the territory now comprising the U.S. has a rich history of sovereign states outside the control of the federal government. Some of these you’ve almost certainly heard of, but a lot of them are quite obscure. Each points toward a potential American secession of the future.Table of Contents

Vermont Republic (January 15, 1777 – March 4, 1791)

Current Territory: The State of Vermont

The earliest sovereign state in North America after the Revolution was the Vermont Republic, also known as the Green Mountain Republic or the Republic of New Connecticut. The Republic was known by the United States as “the New Hampshire Grants” and was not recognized by the Continental Congress. The people of the Vermont Republic contacted the British government about union with Quebec, which was accepted on generous terms. They ultimately declined union with Quebec after the end of the Revolutionary War, during which they were involved in the Battle of Bennington, and the territory was accepted into the Union as the 14th state – the first after the original 13.

Genesis of U.S. Immigration Crisis

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Well, we can for sure say that the Democrats side with the Communists, Marxists and Revolutionaries.

Hat tip to Glenn Beck and my buddy Ami Horowitz for the great foot work and investigations to determine where this illegal insurgency is really coming from. Beck pulled out his chalkboard again and his presentation is a good one.

So, while these Democrats are not students of history and while others have very short memories, there is a long history pertaining to all of this immigration crisis. You see, a few years ago, I read a book titled From the Shadows, written by former CIA Director Robert Gates. Gates was also the Secretary of Defense as part of his long government service resume. He wrote that book in 1996. A particular page stayed in my memory and I did a search in my Book Nook today to find it.

Trolls and Anti-Vaccinations Operations

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Remember the panic Americans went through because of the annual exercises called Jade Helm? It was an Obama operation where his military was practicing to impose martial law across the country so Obama would remain a forever president. Then Alex Jones bought into that notion and the message spread for months. It was a Russian troll operation, a very successful one. The Russians have made a fine art form of disinformation such that even government officials and media cannot make the distinctions.

Then of course there was/is the whole election interference operations not only in the United States but, Britain, Ukraine, France and even Mexico.

Among other disinformation campaigns is the whole vaccination thing. Well, the anti-vaccination thing set in and Americans have in countless cases refused to get their children vaccinated as any of them would or could cause autism.

Are Democrats Pushing Sharia Law?

By: Lloyd Marcus

A fan thought I exaggerated when I wrote that Sharia law will spread like wildfire across America if Democrats win the White House. She feared my over-the-top statement about the spread of Islam will damage my credibility.

My statement is not an exaggeration. For crying out loud, the federal government illegally funded a national curriculum titled “Access Islam.” This indoctrination program outrageously teaches students how to become Muslim — how to pray as a Muslim, how to perform Islamic “daily worship,” and how to perform the “core duties” of being a Muslim.

A California school banned all Christian-based books from its library, including books by Christian authors. Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Hermsmeyer says they do not allow “sectarian materials” on their state-authorized lending shelves. Public schools are celebrating Islam while banning Christmas.

Barack Obama: A Lifelong Story of Russian Collusion

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Several U.S. presidents have genuinely colluded with Russia or the former Soviet Union, but none more so the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. It’s no exaggeration to say that Obama owes his entire career to Russian collusion.

In March 2012, President Obama made his famous “off mic” remarks to then Russian president Dmitry Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” Medvedev replied, “I understand. I transmit this information to Vladimir.”

Was this some innocent remark, or was it just as it seems: a friend passing a message to a friend?

Donna Brazile: Why Would Fox News Hire a Socialist?

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

The recent revelation that Fox News hired long-time Democratic Party operative Donna Brazile has confirmed fears that the organization is moving further to the left.

Brazile has served as vice chair of voter registration and participation at the Democratic National Committee (DNC). She ran Al Gore’s campaign for the White House in 2000. The Washingtonian named Brazile one of the “100 most powerful women” and Essence magazine named her one of the top 50 women in America. The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation has given her an award for outstanding political achievement.

Despite all this, Brazile is not merely another “liberal Democrat.” The long-time political operative has spent most of her career affiliated with the socialist/Marxist wing of the Democratic Party.

Brazile has a life-long pattern of working with the hard-left.

The Chinese Spy at Mar-a-Lago

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It was not so much about the lies she told to get on the grounds and through the first layer of security at Mar-a-Lago, or about the spy stuff she had on her at the time she was arrested at Trump’s club… but there were some interesting things in her hotel room. How about $8000 in cash, an unknown amount of Chinese currency, a signal detector, additional cell phones, a dozen or so credit cards, 9 USB cards, 5 SIM cards, and 9 thumb drives that immediately began corrupting files on a test (cold) computer.

The 10 page criminal complaint is found here.

MiamiHerald: Yujing Zhang — the Chinese woman arrested Saturday after allegedly trying to bring an unusual number of electronic devices into President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club — identified herself at a court hearing earlier this week as an investor and a consultant for a Shanghai private-equity firm who appears to have amassed considerable wealth.

Russian Collusion? Look to Joe Biden

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times


Vice President Joe Biden presides over the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, on Dec. 5, 2016. (Senate TV via AP)

While President Donald Trump has been cleared of charges of Russian collusion, there is a better case of Russian collusion to be made against another U.S. leader—former Vice President Joe Biden. An investigation into Biden’s Russian ties is long overdue and urgent, as he is likely to declare his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination sometime soon.

While widely regarded as the moderate face of the Democratic Party, that perception might change quickly if more people were aware of his past work to further the interests of the former Soviet Union and Russia.

Biden visited the Soviet Union several times during his early Senate career and was well known to Soviet leaders. The appalling Soviet treatment of dissidents was a big issue at the time, and then-Sen. Biden would sometimes express concern at their plight.

President Trump has our economy booming.  Unemployment claims are at an unprecedented 50-year-low.  There are more jobs available than there are workers to fill them.

Yet every Democrat presidential candidate is on a mad dash to socialism.  If a Democrat is elected president in 2020, we will be thrust back to the depressing days of Obama’s failed economy: record-high numbers of Americans on food stamps, unemployment, and disability.  Democrats are like drug-dealers seeking to insidiously addict Americans to government dependency solely to control their lives, behavior, and voting loyalty.

From the beginning of the Tea Party movement, I traveled the country on numerous national Tea Party bus tours, speaking and performing my song, “American Tea Party Anthem,” at over 500 Tea Party rallies nationwide.

Al Sisi’s Presidential Ambitions Conflict With Egypt’s Constitution

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah | Voice of the Copts

By virtue of its own authority every dictatorial power — whether of the military, religious or national — creates for the country a vital, intellectual space or atmosphere where propaganda can flourish. This is the means to enact authoritarian projects for the purpose of tightening a grip on society and to justify repressive actions. One such project is Al Sisi’s future presidential ambitions.

Past Egyptian regimes (as well as the present one) self-promote through public boasting and seek praise for their achievements by deluding the public. One case in point is Al Sisi’s Suez Canal mega-project. Egyptians are still waiting to see its benefits. For the regime to control the narrative, it will pre-empt the opposition in staged “democratic” debates on TV forums. The actors, host, and guests, are well-versed in satisfying the regime’s desired outcomes.

An army of writers, journalists, and broadcasters – servants of the regime — are always ready to serve the next authoritarian project when it comes along. Today’s mission of the Egyptian regime is to convince the public that President Al Sisi, who is in the middle of his second and final four-year term, needs more time in office than the current constitution allows. Al Sisi must continue. He has made promises to the people he needs to fulfill.

Saul Alinsky, Meet Madison Avenue – Deplorables Style

By: Thomas Wigand | New Zeal

Mr. Wigand is the author of the book Communiqués From the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (available on Amazon in both print and Kindle versions).  Comments or questions for Mr. Wigand may be sent to: [email protected]

READ ON; YOU’LL HAVE SOME LAUGHS BEFORE WE’RE THROUGH!

Before occupying the Presidency, Comrade Barack Obama was a “community organizer” – an amorphous term that came out of the Leftist alley into the main street lexicon during the 2008 campaign cycle. Few knew what it meant, and most did not examine it.

Indeed, the collusive, “mainstream” media glossed-over the radical origins and implications of “community organizing.”

However, others did examine it – after all, what the heck is a “community organizer” anyway? And why would someone graduating from Harvard Law School go on to become a “community organizer?”

The trail led to decades-old book well known to the Left, but relatively unknown outside of it: Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

The Vatican, KINO And Our Southern Border Incursions

By: Denise Simon | Founders Codes

Primer: Callista Gingrich is the U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican. Given the crisis at our southern border and the relationship Newt has with the Trump White House, imagine the conversations regarding the Pope’s constant call for no walls and global Catholic charities working against U.S. law enforcement. Yikes… and it seems the Catholic Church in the United States has no use for Callista, Newt, or President Trump. If you need some proof on that, click here.

The other part of the Primer:

President Obama’s Executive Action: In November, the Jesuits of the United States, Jesuit Refugee Services/USA, and the Kino Border Initiative issued a statement welcoming President Obama’s executive action to end the legislative gridlock and place pressure on Congress to make immigration reform a priority. The President’s order will provide temporary stays of deportation to as many as five million undocumented migrants who live in fear of discovery and separation from their families, but there are another 6 million undocumented immigrants whose situations are unaddressed by the order. To read the complete statement from the Jesuits of the United States, JRS/USA, and the KBI, please see http://www.jesuit.org/news-detail?TN=NEWS-20141121032132.

Huge ICE Raid Nabs 280

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

And the Democrats continue to say to the media that illegals don’t take jobs Americans need, they only do the jobs Americans won’t do.

Hat tip to those that called in tips and to HSI for doing lots of homework for about a year prior to the raid. At issue are fake ID’s and hiring undocumented immigrants. This is another reason that all states/companies must use E-Verify.

It goes like this:

U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement announced Wednesday that it had arrested some 280 individuals in an immigration enforcement sting in northern Texas, the largest such raid in at least a decade.

ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) arm executed criminal search warrants at the headquarters of CVE Technology Group Inc., a technology repair company located in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. Officials told KERA News that the action was the largest worksite raid in the country in ten years.

The raid was prompted by several tips, provided to HSI, which indicated that CVE had been knowingly employing illegal immigrants and that a number of its employees were using fraudulent documents for identification. In January, HSI audited CVE’s I-9 forms, which led to the unearthing of “numerous irregularities,” the press release explained.

“Businesses that knowingly hire illegal aliens create an unfair advantage over their competing businesses,” said Special Agent in Charge Katrina W. Berger, HSI Dallas. “In addition, they take jobs away from U.S. citizens and legal residents, and they create an atmosphere poised for exploiting their illegal workforce.”

CVE is a cellphone refurbisher. One employee, who spoke to KERA News, described the raid.

“Man, it was crazy,” employee Yessenia Ponce said. “We were working like a normal day. … We just heard screaming, you know, people screaming and stuff. We went out and an officer just said ‘follow my voice, follow my voice.’”

The raid on CVE was larger than the previous record holder for the decade, a worksite enforcement action against a trailer manufacturer also in northern Texas. That event led to the arrest of 159 illegal workers.

The largest raid in U.S. history, by way of comparison, took place in Postville, Iowa in 2008. That day, HSI officials arrested some 400 men, women, and teenagers, according to the Des Moines Register.

Russian Military Stuff in Venezuela, Concerns for U.S.

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

For context:

  • In 2007, Chavez and President Hu Jintao of China signed a deal for operating credit. The deal was loans for oil.
  • In 2014, the China Development Bank provided Venezuela another $30 billion in more oil back loans including mining, refining, pipelines, and power stations. Maduro failed on parts of the deal and China is working diligently to protect the loans, investments and the deals.
  • Russia in 2015, stepped in and provided $6.5 billion in new funds through Rosneft, while in previous years, Venezuela bought $4 billion in Russian arms and military equipment. Now both China and Russia are facing defaults by Venezuela.
  • Russia flew in 2 bombers containing more military equipment last month and an estimated 100-200 Russian troops. Russia has explained the troops were there for maintenance. However, as a cover, Russia immediately opened a helicopter training center via Rostec. The helicopters included are Mi-35M gunships and troop transports.  At least 2 factories are under construction in Venezuela building Kalashnikov rifles and ammunition. Furthermore, Russia provides military tactical advice and training to Venezuela.
  • Russia has supplied Venezuela with fighter jets, tanks, and air defense system(s).
  • The worst part of the relationship between Russia and Venezuela consists of at least 5000 MANPADS. The stockpile in Venezuela is the largest in Latin America and are of a shoulder-fired variation. Known to be SA-24 or Igla-S, having a range of 500-6,000m and an altitude up to 3,500m. More details here.

Venezuela is home to a vibrant illegal weapons trade and smuggling operation(s). Weapons include long guns, machine guns, grenades, and other military-grade items.

While U.S. operatives are working to locate and understand all military equipment in Venezuela, theft of the MANPADS is most concerning including investigations into trade on the black market.

Venezuela maintains an inventory of MSTA self-propelled howitzers, TOR0M1 mobile SAMS, and T-72 tanks.

It is thought that their stockpile is located near the coast in fears of a U.S. attack which Russia is accusing the U.S. of planning. With those stockpiles are 1,500 launchers and grip stocks fundamental to MANPAD operations. These MANPADS were purchased by Chavez in 2010 as part of a $4 billion weapons purchase with Russia. In 2009, Sweden had confirmed that at least 3 MANPADS were found in a FARC guerrilla camp in Columbia. Sweden had actually sold them to Venezuela in the late 1980s.

Both Obama and John Kerry negotiated a deal with Columbia to disband FARC. The deal happened in early 2016 in Cuba. FARC is a Marxist guerrilla group and was on the U.S. State Department terror list for years. The talks took place in Cuba, yet FARC remains a major concern as to where members are today, likely joined up with other militant organizations in the region.

All of the items above play into the equation of decisions made by the United States, The LIMA Group, and the Organization of American States. Not to be left out is the China trade negotiations and matters with Russia.

It Is Outrageous That Supporting Trump Is Dangerous

By: Lloyd Marcus

My car, which has a “Trump/Pence” bumper sticker, was keyed. While pumping gas, a motorist seemed impressed by my courage to have a Trump bumper sticker. People have told me they are afraid to wear a MAGA cap or have a Trump sign on their lawn.

Having to feel so afraid to express our political views is outrageous. Democrats and fake news media have so twisted the meaning of “MAGA” and generated such hatred for Trump that citizens are afraid to publicly support the president of the United States. This is still America. Thugs who physically attack us for expressing our First Amendment right to free speech must be prosecuted.

Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Democrat domestic terrorists routinely beat up Trump supporters. Meanwhile, fake news media promotes their lie that the Tea Party is a violent movement. The Tea Party is totally nonviolent. Brothers and sisters, it requires courage to stand with Trump in his quest to bring America back from Democrats’ destruction. I am grateful that God is on our side.

Meet Three Grassroots Heroes Helping to Save America

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

The grassroots heroes will save America—not the elites, philosophers, political party operatives, or the mega-donors; not the Congress members or senators or even the president. The grassroots activists who love the home of the brave so much they are willing to put their bodies on the line for her have always been the unsung heroes, keeping the city shining brightly on the top of that hill whose “beacon light,” proclaimed former President Ronald Reagan, “guides freedom-loving people everywhere.”

I would like to mention just three of these grassroots activists who have all worked to keep America shining brightly.

Zach Werrell

On June 9, 2014, I went with a friend to meet a patriotic Republican congressman in his office on Capitol Hill. This was not long after the U.S. Senate had passed a bill granting amnesty to illegal aliens. The socialists were now pushing to pass a similar bill through the House. If they succeeded, 11 million to 20 million illegal aliens would become U.S. citizens and potential voters. I asked the congressman how the Amnesty Bill was going in the House. The Tea Party movement and some pro-America Republicans had been fighting a valiant battle against the amnesty push, but I feared they were losing.

US, Canadian Communists Meet With Venezuela Leadership

Earlier in March, a communist-led delegation from the United States and Canada arrived in Venezuela for a series of meetings with the struggling socialist nation’s senior leadership.

Several members of this delegation have a history of supporting the United States’ enemies in Tehran, Damascus, Moscow, Beijing, Pyongyang, Havana, and now Caracas. This raises major questions about whether these individuals are working against the United States with hostile foreign countries in violation of federal law.

The delegation was organized by the U.S. Peace Council, which is led by the Communist Party USA and is an affiliate of the still-existing Soviet-era international communist front group the World Peace Council, which also provided some support.

Smollett and the Deep State: We Deserve Justice

By: Lloyd Marcus

Outrageously, Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has dropped all charges against Jussie Smollett. Smollett is the black actor who staged a fake hate crime, claiming he was brutally assaulted by Trump supporters wearing MAGA caps.

Smollett paid the two guys he hired to stage his bogus attack with a $3000 check. Closed circuit TV caught Smollett’s hired attackers buying the MAGA caps and other materials needed to stage the fake hate crime. Smollett intended for his fake attack to be videoed on cc TV. Thank God the camera in the area Smollett selected malfunctioned. Had Smollett been successful, fake news media would have gleefully aired the video 24/7, probably igniting massive race riots and violence on Trump supporters.

After Kim Foxx dropped all charges, Smollett addressed the media, outrageously lying and presenting himself as a victim of police corruption. Smollett said, “I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother’s son if I was capable of one drop of what I’ve been accused of.”

The Political Drip Method

By: Denise Simon | Political Vanguard

While the Democrats in the House and Senate are demanding, voting and threatening subpoenas to get their hands on the full Mueller report, the report is not required by law to be provided to members of Congress.

AG Bill Barr is working with Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller himself to review hundreds of pages to determine what can be released as AG Barr has pledged to do. Meanwhile, many of these Democrats are lawyers themselves and know full well Barr has to follow the law. The demands they are making are unlawful unless a judge\ makes a ruling that the entire report, without redactions, can be released. That is hardly a likely occurrence.

So, the Republicans in cadence with the Justice Department can play the drip method, the political drip method actually.

As long as we are talking about releasing documents, how about releasing documents we have all been more than curious about regarding past scandals?

Is It Time for the Tea Party to Rise Again?

By: Lloyd Marcus

The Mueller report exonerated President Trump of claims that he colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. In response, Nancy Pelosi said screw Mueller’s report. Her minions will continue seeking to create evidence of Trump/Russia collusion to impeach him.

Fake news media will continue its lies and deceptions to keep their “Trump colluded” lie going. Thirty-four people were indicted or pled guilty in Mueller’s Trump collusion investigation. Fake news media claims this is proof that Trump is guilty of collusion. The truth is the indictments and guilty pleas have nothing to do with Russia collusion. Many were found guilty of process crimes.

My wife Mary asked, “What is a process crime?” One example is investigators repeatedly ask you the same questions on different occasions. If you do not give the exact same answer each time, they can charge you with lying; a process crime. Suddenly, you find yourself in prison for a crime unrelated to the original investigation. Mary said, “Oh my gosh, given my short memory, you would be visiting me in prison.”

If Our House Be On Fire

By: Tabitha Korol

The Somalian pirates have once again sailed into North American waters.  But instead of kidnapping coastal dwellers for slavery or taking bounty to enhance their wealth, from the 16th century onwards (and again in the 2000s), they are here to continue the process of taking land, America from Americans for Islam and Israel from the Jews for the self-proclaimed “Palestinians.”  For centuries, the legacy of Muhammad’s raids has been the acquisition of land and booty/wealth (Maal-e-Ghanimat), jizya (extortion/tax) from the conquered people, and modern-day welfare, such as the annual £25,000 ($33,009) received by Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary in Britain, who urges other “jihad seekers” do the same.  

Salafi scholar Abu Ishak al Huweini lamented, “If only we can conduct a jihadist invasion at least once a year or, if possible, twice or three times, then many people on Earth would become Muslim.” He added that if they could not confiscate the wealth, they would kill the men and kidnap and enslave their women and children.  American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki instructed that the disbelievers’ property is never rightfully theirs, and may be forcefully “retaken” for Islam, a belief system that supports the Islamic right to anything they want – Europe, America, and Israel, home to the Jews for more than 3,000 years.  Islamists continue to disregard the Jewish kingdoms, sovereign Jewish state, and continuous Jewish presence in the land, Biblically documented and archaeologically verified.

It was therefore not surprising, except to those who failed to notice the sharia-compliant hijab and oath of office sworn to Allah on the Qur’an, that Somalian-born Ilhan Omar (D-MN) can so boldly deny Israel’s historic and legal rights to exist.  And if she can make headway in Congress while also undermining the American government and people’s inalienable rights, so much the better.   Her recent proposal, bound to be superseded by yet another jab before this goes to print, was, “We must acknowledge that [Israel] is also the historical homeland of Palestinians.”  That is not the case.  There is absolutely no evidence of a Palestinian history before 1967 AD!  Those who assumed this false identity were the Egyptian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian squatters who went in search of work in the flourishing Israel and who were ill-advised to vacate the land by the invading Arab armies, expecting to return after the Jews were annihilated.  They were to be disappointed.  Weakened and isolated as pawns in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria, they began an unceasing political, psychological, and propagandist war of conquest in the court of world opinion.  While such attempts at land acquisition may differ from country to country – from Africa, India and the Middle East, to Europe, Australasia and America – let us not delude ourselves into thinking they’ve suddenly amended their 1400-year-old ideology.  They have not.

Rep. Adam Schiff Demands Vaccine Censorship

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

With his Russia-gate conspiracy theory debunked, House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff has turned his attention to demanding that Google, Facebook, and Amazon stop carrying certain educational vaccine-related materials. People are now even being banned from “public places” for refusing vaccinations. Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center responds to this “Dark Night of Oppression” that includes “The New Internet Police,” the banning of books and films, and the prospect of a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine.

New Zealand Mosque Attack: Egypt’s Grand Imam Schools The West On Terror Equality

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

The following includes a brief review of how Islam realized its presence in a country such as New Zealand (Muslims are one percent) by way of intentional Islamization efforts and export across the world. The grand imam of Al-Azhar Institute, Ahmed Al Tayib, responded to the New Zealand tragedy with comments consistent with the context of this background. 

The supreme religious leader of Arab-Muslim Sunnis reacted to the Mar 15 New Zealand fatal mosques shootings with a statement that shows us his real concern. While he is the one individual in the whole world positioned to use this opportunity to create positive reforms of Islam by saying something like “terrorism must be stopped,” he instead expressed relief that Muslims are not the only terrorists.

Under the banner of the popular Egyptian slogan, “Terrorism has no religion,” the grand imam stated that “It’s time for people in the East and West to stop repeating lies concerning Islamic terrorism.” In this quote, the lie he refers to is that terrorism belongs solely to Islam. The white, non-Islamic Australian gunman as reported by the media was a fact that debunked this assumption for the world to see.

Race Relations: If Democrats Would Get Out of Our Way

By: Lloyd Marcus

To keep blacks feeling like victims in a forever racist America, Democrats keep the flames of racial division burning. Blacks are only 12% of the population. This means white voters gifted the first black president two terms. Despicably, Democrats continue to tell blacks, “Keep voting for us to keep racist white America off your backs.” Contrary to the Democrats’ lie, we have come a long way baby in race relations in our country. Living, working and playing together, a majority of Americans work out their racial issues. We need race-baiting Democratic politicians to get out of our way.

In 1952, Dad was among a handful of blacks who broke the color barrier to become Baltimore City firefighters. Dad was stationed at 6 Engine. Filled with hate and resentment over his presence, the white firefighters humiliated Dad at every turn.

Outrageously, Dad was assigned separate eating utensils, bathroom, and sleeping area. Dad kept a jar of Sanka instant coffee because he was forbidden to drink from the same coffeepot as the white firefighters.

Senior Democrat Who Compared Trump To Hitler Formerly Collaborated With Fidel Castro

Highly influential Democrat and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) compared the Trump administration to the rise of Nazism in Germany earlier this month. Clyburn told NBC News that though he’d never before seen a toxic political climate like the current one, he’d “studied ones like it.”

Former President Barack Obama gushed over Clyburn, describing him as “one of a handful of people who, when they speak, the entire Congress listens.” As the number three Democrat in the House, “Clyburn is the leadership liaison to the powerful Appropriations Committee and one of the Democratic Caucus’s primary liaisons to the White House,” according to his website.

“Adolf Hitler was elected chancellor of Germany. And he went about the business of discrediting institutions to the point that people bought into it,” Clyburn continued in his NBC interview. “Nobody would have believed it now. But swastikas hung in churches throughout Germany. We had better be very careful.”

Border Patrol Collapsing, But 20,000 Caravan Forming Now

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Yes and that newest caravan is in Honduras now and it is estimated to be 20,000 strong. Caravans get larger as they move north. The Border Patrol has sounded the alarm and so has DHS. Anyone left in Honduras?

Trump Threatens Honduras Foreign Aid Over - One News Page ...

By the way, the United States via all government agencies gave Honduras $180,977,214 in foreign aid in 2017. The money is designated for local governance, counter-narcotics programs, reading programs, treaties, violence prevention, human rights, and the justice system… ever wonder where Congress is on this or an Inspector General? (click that link, it is interactive)

‘Mother of all migrants’ caravans’ is forming up in Honduras: interior secretary

Numbers could go higher than 20,000

A massive cohort of prospective migrants dubbed the “mother of all caravans” is forming in Honduras, the federal interior secretary said today.

“We are aware that a new caravan is forming in Honduras that they’re calling the mother of all caravans . . . and which could be [made up of] more than 20,000 people,” Olga Sánchez Cordero said.

Trump’s EO On Electromagnetic Pulses

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

If government agencies are working this mission, shouldn’t Congress take up some measures too? Given this Executive Order, consider what motivated this action and consider all the measures you yourself should take.

Executive Order on Coordinating National Resilience to Electromagnetic Pulses

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Purpose.  An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) has the potential to disrupt, degrade, and damage technology and critical infrastructure systems.  Human-made or naturally occurring EMPs can affect large geographic areas, disrupting elements critical to the Nation’s security and economic prosperity, and could adversely affect global commerce and stability.  The Federal Government must foster sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective approaches to improving the Nation’s resilience to the effects of EMPs.

Sec. 2.  Definitions.  As used in this order:

(a)  “Critical infrastructure” means systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.

(b)  “Electromagnetic pulse” is a burst of electromagnetic energy.  EMPs have the potential to negatively affect technology systems on Earth and in space.  A high-altitude EMP (HEMP) is a type of human-made EMP that occurs when a nuclear device is detonated at approximately 40 kilometers or more above the surface of Earth.  A geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) is a type of natural EMP driven by a temporary disturbance of Earth’s magnetic field resulting from interactions with solar eruptions.  Both HEMPs and GMDs can affect large geographic areas.

Maduro Gets Russian Military Backup

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Russian military contingent that arrived in Venezuela over the weekend, drawing U.S. condemnation, is believed by the U.S. government to be made up of special forces including “cybersecurity personnel,” a U.S. official told Reuters on Tuesday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the United States was still assessing the Russian deployment, which Washington has called a “reckless escalation” of the situation in Venezuela.

Two Russian air force planes landed outside Caracas on Saturday carrying nearly 100 Russian troops, according to local media reports, two months after the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump disavowed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Russia’s main objective in providing the military assistance, including cyber experts, would likely be to help shield Maduro from “regime change” and ensure a foothold for Moscow in Latin America, according to a source familiar with U.S. government assessments of Venezuela. Russia also has major energy investments in OPEC member Venezuela.

Russia’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday that the presence of “Russian specialists” in Venezuela was governed by a military-technical cooperation agreement between the two countries. It did not provide further details.

Russian air force planes land in Venezuela carrying troops ...

The United States condemned this action and Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State called Moscow to discuss describing this as a reckless escalation of conditions on the ground in Venezuela.

Qatar Operations All Over The United States

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Back in 2014, I wrote about Qatar, sounding the alarm due to the very close relationship between Hamad bin Thamer al Thani and Barack Obama. In fact, when Obama showed up to West Point for a speech and graduation, the son of al Thani was in that graduating class. Wut you say?

I wrote again about Qatar in 2017, funding Hamas in Gaza. A few months later, I published an item about Qatar hiring lobbying organizations in DC, that other part of the swamp. Then there was the piece about Qatar buying off teachers and American education.

It continues as Qatar has an investment fund worth an estimated $260 billion. The forecast is to spend $35 billion in the United States and they are well underway.

Since 2015, Qatar has spent $8 billion on a Manhattan West real estate project that is located very near Penn Station. While Qatar is buying off lawyers and lobbyists in DC, even the very buildings are part of the Qatari real estate portfolio including the CityCenterDC. Oh yeah, remember former AG Eric Holder? Well, he is with the law firm Covington & Burling. The law firm has a lucrative consulting contract with Qatar. In fact, Covington & Burling has an office in Doha. Perhaps because Qatar owns CityCenter in DC, they needed a tenant, they got one… Covington & Burling.

Brenton Tarrant: Is the Christchurch Mosque Shooter a ‘National Bolshevik’?

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times


The National Bolshevik symbol used in Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto (left) and on the National Bolshevik Party website (right).

The man who brutally murdered 50 worshipers in two mosques in my hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand, is almost certainly an ideological “National Bolshevik.” Countless media stories have labeled the killer as “far-right,” an inaccurate description at best.

A thorough reading of his 74-page manifesto “The Great Replacement” (which refers to the replacement of white Europeans by Islamic and other immigrants) confirms that Brenton Tarrant is no “right-winger” in the American sense, i.e., a believer in the individual, constitutionally guaranteed liberties and free-market economics.

Tarrant’s ideological outlook appears to be consistent with that of the “National Bolsheviks,” a curious amalgam of communist and Nazi ideologies often associated with influential Russian political analyst/activist Aleksandr Dugin—who is reportedly an influence on Russian president Vladimir Putin himself.

Dugin is a leader of the small but influential National Bolshevik Party, whose adherents are known as the “Natzbols.” He is also a leader of the so-called “Eurasia Movement,” which believes in uniting fascist political elements with nationalistic communists to create a European homeland stretching from Siberia to Ireland. Dugin and his fellow ideologues are widely admired by European neo-fascists and neo-Stalinist communists alike.

The Democratic Presidential Contenders’ Demeaning View of Americans

By: Lloyd Marcus

When Democrat senator Kamala Harris announced her run for the presidency, she vowed to be a “tireless advocate of men and women who lack power and wealth.” But Sen. Harris and her fellow Democrats are obsessed with removing power from We the People. Removing parents’ power to raise their children, Democrats implemented mandatory LGBTQ indoctrination in public schools. Parents are forbidden to opt out their child.

Sen. Harris and her party seek to remove more power from the people by disarming them. Students have been brainwashed into absurdly believing that law-abiding gun owners are responsible for school shootings. Democrats are pushing to lower the voting age to 16 so kids will naively vote to repeal their parents’ Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Power to freely worship is under attack by Democrats. They want to ban the Bible, criminalize quoting the Bible, and mandate that Christians betray biblical teachings. 

Sen. Harris said that she will advocate for those who lack wealth. Between her party’s obsession with oppressive taxation and outrageously high death taxes, everyday Americans are blocked from acquiring wealth

Hillary’s Hybrid Warfare

By: Denise Simon | Political Vanguard

You have to wonder if Obama is walking with Hillary in the woods pondering another chapter of ‘What Happened’.

While we wait along with Congress, under this transparency thing for the full or semi-full disclosure of the Robert Mueller investigation report, we have countless other items that we have already learned that cannot be overlooked.

While we are told the Mueller operation cost the taxpayers upwards of $25 million, and we should be angry that those dollars were wasted, my argument here is that money was well spent. The Mueller report could be a cheap buy to re-elect Trump – the operative word being ‘could.’  Why? Those among the hundreds interviewed by the Mueller operation told us so much we did not know. Consider a few names such as Corsi, Priebus, Spicer, Clovis, Papadopoulos, Kaveladze, Sessions, Flynn, Hope Hicks, Pompeo and perhaps Michael Caputo. Cheap money to learn about their Mueller adventure(s).

Communists and Race

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Communists long ago realized that it’s difficult to achieve the social disintegration needed to ready a country for communist revolution by promoting class division alone.

Class is amorphous; it can change within a generation. In a free society, an ambitious individual can rise from beggar to billionaire in a lifetime. Class is an unreliable wedge issue for revolutionaries, especially in Western free-market societies.

Ethnic, religious, and especially racial differences are more stable. The divisions are deeper; the differences, more obvious; and their histories, more imbued with bitterness and hatred. Few people care that their grandparents were poor, but many might care that they were slaves or dispossessed of their ancestral lands by a rival racial or ethnic group. Such resentments can last for generations.

Therefore, modern Marxist-Leninists have consistently, even scientifically, exploited ethnic and racial divisions to achieve revolutionary ends.

Green Is the New Red

Environmentalists hold a protest march in the U.S. Capitol in Washington on April 29, 2017. Astrid Riecken/Getty Images

In the 1970s, a friend of mine, “Mike,” was an avid striped bass fisherman on the New Hampshire coast. He was drawn into a local environmental group, the Clamshell Alliance, after being told that warm water from local nuclear power plants would harm the striped bass fishery.

Mike was trained to sneak into the local power plant to spray-paint environmental slogans on the walls. There were whisperings that some more-seasoned activists might be preparing to commit more serious acts of sabotage.

At a Clamshell meeting one night, Mike raised an awkward question about the environmental value of a proposed tactic. He was pulled aside by a group leader to be set straight. “Don’t you understand?” said the leader. “Understand what?” said Mike.

“We don’t give a [expletive] about the environment. We’re here to bring down American capitalism,” the leader replied.

Socialists Plan To ‘Pack’ Supreme Court

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

(Eric Baradat/AFP/Getty Images)

Socialists are plotting to “pack” the U.S. Supreme Court, with a goal to destroy the first non-leftist majority for 70 years.

Currently, the U.S. Supreme Court consists of four leftist justices, three constitutionalists, and two right-leaning moderates. Socialists are terrified that if Ruth Bader Ginsberg—or another leftist justice—retires or dies before President Donald Trump leaves office, he or she may be replaced by another constitutionalist with potentially dire consequences for their radical agenda.

Socialist achievements, such as affirmative action, “hate speech” legislation, gun control measures, and restrictions on religious liberties, could all be overturned by a constitutionalist majority in the Supreme Court.

So, the socialists have hatched a plan.  

A new group has been formed called Pack the Courts that aims to pressure the next Democratic president to expand the Supreme Court beyond its current nine justices. If the next president can expand the court to 11 or 13 justices, adding all leftists, they can then outvote the constitutionalist minority and the socialist agenda will be back on track.

Nike Called SDNY About Michael Avenatti

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

(Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

And then for subsequent calls by Avenatti to Nike where yelling and more threats continued, the FBI was listening.

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles said Avenatti was arrested Monday in New York.

Now, will he be disbarred and will CNN be somewhat embarrassed for hiring a CPL….Creepy Porn Lawyer?

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represented adult film star Stormy Daniels in her legal battles against U.S. President Donald Trump, was arrested on Monday and charged with extorting more than $20 million from Nike, federal prosecutors said.

The U.S. Attorneys offices in New York and Los Angeles separately filed charges against Avenatti, with the California case accusing him of embezzling a client’s money to cover his own debts, as well as using phony tax returns to obtain millions of dollars in loans from a bank.

Avenatti threatened to expose allegations of misconduct from Nike employees unless the apparel company paid him and an unnamed co-conspirator $22.5 million to “buy Avenatti’s silence,” the New York complaint said.

He is also being investigated by the California State Bar Association in addition to the Senator Grassley referral to the DOJ.

According to the criminal complaint, Avenatti met in March 2019 with an attorney for Nike and threatened to release damaging information about the company if Nike didn’t make millions in payment to himself and an unnamed co-conspirator. Avenatti also allegedly demanded that Nike pay $1.5 million to an individual he claimed to represent.

“I’ll go take $10 billion dollars off your client’s market cap…I’m not f***ing around,” Avenatti said, according to the complaint.

The criminal complaint is fascinating that came out of New York. Then there is the California criminal complaint noted below:

The Fatal Flaw Of Socialized Healthcare

Whether one refers to it as “Medicare for All,” “single-payer healthcare,” or “socialized medicine,” government-controlled healthcare has one impossible-to-overcome and literally fatal flaw.

It can be summed up in one phrase: Healthcare needs are unlimited, but government healthcare budgets are fixed.

So, what does that mean in real life?

Healthcare is a very broad concept. It’s not just fixing broken limbs or treating cancer and heart attacks. An individual has health needs from the moment of conception until death … and maybe even for several minutes beyond. Every vaccination, checkup, therapy, hospitalization, operation, prosthetic, drug, vitamin, nutritional supplement, or consultation costs money and must be paid for by somebody.

And that’s just your needs. Your healthcare wants are likely even more varied.

How Long Will Media Use SPLC’s Garbage Hate List To Smear People?

By: James Simpson | The Federalist

Now about 60 organizations have either sued or are considered suing the Southern Poverty Law Center for its fraudulent smears. It’s about time.

Like other mainstream publications, Roll Call regularly stoops to citing the thoroughly discredited Southern Poverty Law Center as a credible source for labeling “hate” groups. One recent such article was titled “Among the ‘Jewish groups’ Trump cites, one with neo-Nazi ties.” The author had worked for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and this was clearly part of Democrats’ effort to cover Pelosi and derail criticisms of Ilhan Omar for anti-Semitism.

I work with both of the “hate” groups named in the article, the Center for Security Policy and ACT for America. SPLC’s characterization of them is fraudulent, like most of what it does. It is thus little surprise to anyone who knows anything that SPLC recently jettisoned founder Morris Dees over accusations of racism and sexual assault.

Despite years of takedowns of SPLC’s business model from both sides of the aisle, major media companies such as Amazon, PayPal, Twitter, the Washington Post, Facebook, Google, The New York Times, and more cite them and use their determinations for business decisions such as Amazon’s nonprofit donations program. When will this ever end? How many lawsuits and lies will it take?

The SPLC’s Hate Group Definitions Are Garbage

ACT does not now, nor did it ever have, ties to any “neo-Nazi.” Both ACT and the Center are long-established organizations whose leaders and scholars seek to inform and warn America about the subversive goals of Islamic radical groups in the United States, not everyday Muslims. Everyday Muslims are often as much the victims as others.

Most of the prominent Islamic organizations in the United States are either Muslim Brotherhood (MB) fronts or tied to the Deobandi movement of South Asia (which also has ties to MB). Both are aggressive, subversive organizations that engage in terrorism throughout the world.

In the United States, they generally use subversion as a more effective strategy and have insinuated their allies and agendas into the U.S. government, media, Hollywood, public schools and universities. This is helping encourage the recent rise of anti-Semitism in the United States.

They also engage in terrorism. The 2015 San Bernardino, California attack that killed 14 and wounded 22 was carried out by followers of Deobandi. Terrorists of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas attack and murder Israeli Jews and even Arabs on an almost daily basis in the West Bank, and—note to border wall opponents—in Israel proper before Israel built its wall.

Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose U.S. front is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Why doesn’t SPLC mention CAIR?

CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial and only avoided trouble because the Obama Justice Department under Eric Holder discontinued prosecutions of organizations named in the case. CAIR is also a subversive wrecking bar against the U.S. Constitution, conducting nonstop lawfare against America. CAIR’s Chicago branch—one of 27 in the United States—brags a tally of more than 5,200 lawsuits against U.S. governments.

Smearing People Is Big Business

Many of the “hate” groups on SPLC’s list are simply those it disagrees with politically. Rather than engage in legitimate debate, the SPLC seeks to destroy its political enemies with defamatory smear tactics. The Russian Communist Vladimir Lenin advocated this strategy, saying, “We must write in a language that inspires hate, revulsion, and scorn among the working class toward those who disagree with us.”

Frankfurt School Communist Herbert Marcuse developed that idea into what came to be known as “partisan tolerance”: tolerance only of leftist ideas, individuals, and groups, and a wholesale effort to discredit and silence opponents. Marcuse and other Communists worked closely for years with SPLC co-founder Julian Bond.

The SPLC regularly consorts with Communist organizations. In his pamphlet, “Rules for Radicals,” Saul Alinsky advocated the tactic of accusing opponents of hate, but SPLC was the first to institutionalize it. It has since spread far and wide, in media, universities, Hollywood, and in mindless chants of leftist protesters. Apparently now it reaches even into the editorial staff of Roll Call.

The SPLC never criticizes even the vilest leftist groups. For example, Antifa, which uses violence and increasingly expresses vitriolic, obscenity-laced hate and anti-Semitism, earns no criticism or “hate” designation from SPLC. Instead, the SPLC defends groups like Antifa against the big, bad Proud Boys!

When Occupy Wall Street Black Bloc activists attempted to bomb a bridge in Ohio and blow up the GOP convention in 2012, SPLC was asked why Black Bloc was not listed among its “hate” groups. “We’re not really set up to cover the extreme Left” was the lame response.

The oldest Muslim Brotherhood front is the Muslim Students Association. It is responsible (along with the left) for the rise of anti-Semitism on college campuses. It never gets a mention by the SPLC.

There are countless other examples. The SPLC has singled out and destroyed numerous individuals and organizations using these smear tactics. It is a form of political terrorism.

SPLC’s Targets Have Begun to Fight Back

SPLC lost a $3.5 million lawsuit last year against Maajid Nawaz, a moderate Muslim the SPLC labeled an “extremist,” because he spoke out against Islamic extremism and terrorism. You literally can’t make this stuff up.

Now about 60 organizations have either sued or are considered suing the SPLC for its fraudulent smears. It’s about time. Thousands more could join in. It should be stripped of its 501(c)3 “nonpartisan” tax-exempt status and sued into penury. A dedicated prosecutor could easily make a claim that they are a continuing criminal enterprise and seize their assets under racketeering statutes.

The SPLC shows its extreme partisanship every day. Even liberals like Dana Milbank, Alexander Cockburn, and Stephen Bright have labeled the SPLC a fraud. It spends more than 20 percent of its income on fundraising and has amassed almost half a billiondollars in assets, some of which is squirreled away in overseas accounts.

Less than half of its revenues last year were needed to cover expenses, while its overtly socialist executives earn very capitalist salaries, and live like kings. Must be nice to be such conscience-free hypocrites.

Media Act as Megaphones for SPLC Smears

The Roll Call article cast both ACT and the Center as “hawks” on national defense as if that were somehow further evidence of bigotry or some other evil. That is idiotic, but “hawks” isn’t even applicable.

The Center for Security Policy staff, for example, includes former CIA officers, military and law enforcement specialists, and other national defense experts. These people take positions based on a careful evaluation of each situation, not some knee jerk “hawk” response to everything. The only knee-jerk reactions seem to be coming from the pages of Roll Call and other mainstream outlets that continue to give the SPLC credibility, like Facebook and The New York Times.

It is tragic that large outlets like these have joined the ranks of leftist smear merchants who have reduced political discourse in the United States to little more than infantile name-calling. The SPLC is one of the nastiest hate groups on the planet. It deliberately provokes division and anger in America on a daily basis to advance its extreme left agenda and rake in millions in donations.

Roll Call, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Google, and all the others need to drop the SPLC as a consultant on “hate” groups, but since they are all of the same stripe, they probably won’t.

What’s in a Name?

By: T. F. Stern | Self-Educated American

Years ago, while working day shift for the Houston Police Department, one of our regular assignments was to take suspects charged with a felony offense in front of a County Court Judge to have his legal rights read to him.  The jail division would have these individuals placed in the Paddy Wagon, driven across town and dropped off in front of the County Courthouse.

As a matter of historical interest, there was a safe zone for unloading prisoners in the lower level of the County Courthouse; but it was reserved for use by Harris County Sheriffs Department Officers.

Imagine if you will, unloading dangerous prisoners out of a Paddy Wagon on the street, taking the jail-issued handcuffs off and replacing them with our own handcuffs on the sidewalk and then escorting them inside the courthouse, up the elevator and into open court for the sole purpose of having them read their rights and then reversing the order to return them to the city jail.  I’m not saying this was a bad idea; that would be a form of criticism directed at those who were our supervisors; no, this was a very bad idea.

So, each afternoon around lunchtime several of the police officers, including myself, would stand around waiting on the sidewalk in front of the courthouse, waiting for the Paddy Wagon to arrive. This being a regular event, we had a following of interested citizens; a polite way of saying these young women wanted to get cozy with police officers.

One fairly pushy young woman would get up close and personal with officers, handling their name tags as she read it aloud and then tried to make a big deal out of each name.  She reached for my name tag and read it slowly back to me, “T.F. Stern…What’s the T.F. stand for?” she asked in a sultry voice.

I shook my head slightly, not wanting to make conversation; but instead explained, “The city got my name wrong, it should be, T.B. Stern”.  I’ve no idea where these ideas come from; they just blossom and I make the best of whatever comes out.

“So then, what’s the T.B. stand for?”  A couple of my fellow officers were curious, seeing as how they’d known me long enough to know I was cooking up a good one.

“Theophilus Bastardo Stern”, I responded.  “Some folks call me The-old Bastard, but you can just call me Theo”.  It must have worked; the woman walked away saying something insulting under her breath. 

The best part about this story, from that day on, one of the officers called me Theo.

Lindh, US Taliban Fighter Prisoner 001 To Be Released

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Lots to know about this U.S. citizen turned terrorist, that fought with the Taliban.

In 2001, directly after the United States went into Afghanistan, there was a nasty ground fight where the first US casualty happened. The man killed was Mike Spann, a CIA agent, and former Marine Captain.

In an area known as Mazar i Sharif, several hundred Taliban prisoners were rounded up and sequestered in Qali i Jangi. Unknown to the US forces, a pink house held a stash of weapons and Mike Spann, along with others, were interrogating the prisoners. Suddenly, an ambush took place, killing Spann but one person did not look at all like the other prisoners and that was John Walker Lindh.

As a side note, these early forces arrived on horseback.

Anyway, Lindh was born in California and after capture was convicted to 20 years in prison. During his prison stay, with the help of his father and especially his grandmother, he gained citizenship in Ireland in 2013.  The plan upon his release was that he will live in Ireland… that is IF the country will accept him. That is still unknown at the point. Ireland may not provide Lindh with a passport on the grounds of being a threat to national security.

All prison records and interviews of Lindh prove he has remained an advocate for global jihad and dedicated to the fight. In 2002, the government under President GW Bush did not know exactly what to do with those caught on the battlefield and how to prosecute terrorists. It was a very new condition 18 years ago.

How did Lindh even consider Islam and this jihad adventure? Well, it began when he watched the movie ‘Malcolm X’. He was so inspired, he converted to Islam at age 17, dropped out of school and headed to Yemen to learn Arabic, all with his parents’ blessings.

He later traveled to Pakistan and joined a paramilitary group fighting for Kashmir’s independence from India. Prior to the attacks on 9/11, Lindh found his way to Afghanistan and joined the Taliban. He spent almost 2 months in a training camp near Kandahar. This camp was preparing Taliban militants and al Qaeda for terror attacks. It was here that Lindh actually met Usama bin Ladin.

After Lindh’s capture, he was eventually charged with providing material support for terrorism. He soon pleaded guilty to violating an Executive Order that prohibited aid to the Taliban and transporting weapons from Pakistan to Afghanistan.

On December 22001, Lindh was transferred to American custody and he was given basic first aid and then questioned for a week at Mazari Sharif, before taking him to Camp Rhino on December 72001. When Lindh arrived at Camp Rhino, his clothes were taken off and he was restrained on a stretcher, blindfolded and placed in a metal shipping container. While bound to the stretcher his picture was taken by American military personnel. While at Camp Rhino, he was heavily medicated and in severe pain from a bullet wound in his leg. On at least one occasion he was interrogated while naked. On December 8th and 9th he was interviewed by the FBI[. He was held at Camp Rhino until he was transferred to the USS Peleliu on December 142001

In prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, Lindh was detained under special administrative measures, which had more restrictions for him than other inmates. In 2013, Lindh filed a lawsuit against the Bureau of Prisons for the right to practice Islam prayer in a communal setting. This is part of the Islamic doctrine and Lindh won his case.

Lindh has refused to denounce his belief in Islam and refuses to condemn militancy. He has even gone so far as to advocate for the Islamic State. Lindh’s father continues to maintain his pride in his son saying that he wants to continue to help the oppressed and that if he remains in the United States after his release in May, he will be the constant victim of threats and hostilities.

DIA: Ron Rockwell Hansen, Pleads Guilty

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

We can’t know the extent of insider threats. The matter of China infecting our intelligence agencies and paying for spying continues.

Frankly, as compared to Jonathan Pollard, 180 months in prison for Hansen is hardly enough. Pollard was released after 30 years but remains on house detention. Pollard aided a steadfast ally, Israel… China is hardly a friendly country to the United States.

Anyway…

SALT LAKE CITY – A former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) officer, taken into federal custody by the FBI in June 2018 as he was preparing to board a flight to China, pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to attempting to communicate, deliver, or transmit information involving the national defense of the United States to the People’s Republic of China.

Ron Rockwell Hansen, 59, a resident of Syracuse, Utah, entered his guilty plea before U.S. District Court Judge Dee Benson in Salt Lake City.  The plea agreement includes a stipulated sentence of 180 months, subject to the approval of the Court. Sentencing in the case is set for Sept. 24, 2019, at 2 p.m.

Hansen pleaded guilty to the lead count of a 15-count indictment returned in June 2018, charging him with an attempt to gather or deliver defense information, acting as an agent of a foreign government, bulk cash smuggling, structuring monetary transactions, and smuggling goods from the United States.  Federal prosecutors will ask the Court to dismiss the remaining counts of the indictment at sentencing, however, the plea agreement includes an agreement that relevant conduct can be considered by the Court in determining the reasonableness of the sentence.

Hansen retired from the U.S. Army as a Warrant Officer with a background in signals intelligence and human intelligence.  He speaks fluent Mandarin-Chinese and Russian, according to court documents. Upon retiring from active duty, DIA hired Hansen as a civilian intelligence case officer in 2006. Hansen held a Top Secret clearance for many years and signed several non-disclosure agreements during his tenure at DIA and as a government contractor.

As Hansen admitted in the plea agreement, in early 2014, agents of a Chinese intelligence service targeted him for recruitment, and he began meeting with them regularly in China.  During these meetings, the agents described to Hansen the type of information that would interest Chinese intelligence.  Hansen stipulated that during the course of his relationship with Chinese intelligence, he received thousands of dollars in compensation for information he provided them.

Between May 24, 2016, and June 2, 2018, Hansen admitted he solicited national security information from an intelligence case officer working for the DIA.  Hansen admitted knowing that the Chinese intelligence services would find the information valuable, and he agreed to act as a conduit to sell that information to the Chinese.  He advised the DIA case officer how to record and transmit classified information without detection, and how to hide and launder any funds received as payment for classified information.  He admitted he now understands that the DIA case officer reported his conduct to the DIA and subsequently acted as a confidential human source for the FBI.

Hansen admitted meeting with the DIA case officer on June 2, 2018, and receiving individual documents containing national defense information that he had previously solicited.  The documents he received were classified. The documents included national security information related to U.S. military readiness in a particular region — information closely held by the federal government. Hansen did not possess a security clearance nor did he possess a need to know the information contained in the materials.

As a part of his plea agreement, Hansen admitted he reviewed the documents, queried the case officer about their contents, and took written notes which contained information determined to be classified.  He advised the DIA case officer that he would remember most of the details about the documents he received that day and would conceal notes about the material in the text of an electronic document he would prepare at the airport before leaving for China.  He admitted he intended to provide the information he received to the agents of the Chinese Intelligence Service with whom he had been meeting.  He also admitted knowing that the information was to be used to the injury of the United States and to the advantage of a foreign nation.

Hansen was arrested June 2, 2018, on his way to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle, Wash., to board a connecting flight to China.

As a part of the plea agreement, Hansen has agreed to forfeit property acquired from or traceable to his offense, including property used to facilitate the crime.

The case was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Robert A. Lund, Karin Fojtik, Mark K. Vincent and Alicia Cook of the District of Utah, and Trial Attorneys Patrick T. Murphy, Matthew J. McKenzie and Adam L. Small of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.  Prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Washington assisted with this case.

The prosecution is the result of an investigation by special agents of the FBI, IRS-Criminal Investigation, U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Army Counterintelligence, and the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Marines Prepare For Exercise Pacific Blitz

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

The Marine Corps’ top general on the west coast is readying his Marines for the next big war against a near-peer competitor, and one of his main concerns is figuring out how to alter the mindset of troops that have been fighting insurgencies since 9/11.

“If anything my problem is getting people out of the mindset of [counterterrorism] and making sure they’re thinking about near-peer adversaries in their training programs,” Lt. Gen. Joseph Osterman, commanding general of I Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton, California, told Task & Purpose in an interview on Friday.

Exercise Pacific Blitz is one program, in particular, that is currently doing just that, involving thousands of Marines, sailors, and coast guardsmen training in and around southern California.

The joint exercise not only brings together a large number of personnel but various assets as well, including Navy ships and landing craft, CH-53 helicopters, V-22 Ospreys, F-35s, and High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), a ground-based artillery system the Marines have previously test-fired from amphibious transport ships.

Marine Corps vehicle radio convoy Pendleton

The bigger picture goal: Getting a large force like the 50,000-strong I MEF from sea to shore in a contested environment, described by the general in a press release as leveraging “a Marine land component as part of our larger goal of sea control.”

Osterman even said personnel were being put ashore at nearby San Clemente Island to build aircraft runways — seemingly a throwback to the Marine Corps’ island-hopping campaigns of World War II.

“It’s not part of the exercise necessarily but that’s kind of one of the things we’d have to do on these remote islands is build runways. So it’s somewhat tangentially aligned,” Osterman said. “We’re doing connector capability between islands.”

In February, Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller told Task & Purpose the Corps had begun to move its training to a more traditional fight instead of what grunts would face against unsophisticated enemies in the Middle East, most notably in using more advanced enemies in force-on-force training against Marines going through pre-deployment training at 29 Palms, California.

“They had aircraft. They were able to jam [communications]. We had aircraft. And we fought force on force,” Neller said on the sidelines of the 2019 West Conference in San Diego. “Marine infantry now, they’ve gotta look up” since enemies in Syria and Iraq have increasingly used unmanned aerial vehicles, and near-peers will have assets such as attack helicopters and artillery.

As Osterman explained, Marine grunts now need to learn to counter enemy drones, prepare for their GPS or communications to be jammed, and understand that enemy artillery, aircraft, or reconnaissance capabilities will be much more advanced if they’re up against an adversary like China or Russia.

“We haven’t had to worry about that for two decades,” Osterman said. “The Taliban doesn’t have any satellites up there.”

Some of Osterman’s Marines have already had a taste of that in Syria, where state and non-state actors have employed high-end anti-aircraft systems, GPS jamming technology, or hacking, for example.

“The Special Purpose [Marine Air Ground Task Force] we send to Central Command is engaged in all of that. High end, you know, kinetics in Syria, all the way down through advising the Iraqi forces. It’s one where we’ve gotta do it all, frankly.”

“Instead of having a forward operating base out there that they’re living out of and doing operations they’ve actually got to constantly be moving because if they sit too long the enemy artillery is going to take them out,” Osterman said of tactics Marines are beginning to think about. “So that gets them almost a little bit, back to [their] roots.”Read the original article on Task & Purpose.

GPS Attack On NATO Exercise Came From Russia

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Norway has stunned the international community by presenting “proof” Russia was behind a sophisticated GPS attack during war games.

War games are supposed to test a military’s ability to deal with the unexpected. But NATO got more than it anticipated last year when its warships’ navigation systems started acting up.

There was no way they could be where their computers were telling them they were.

This was no small issue: warships from 31 different nations were maneuvering together in what was one of NATO’s largest exercises in decades.

But the implications went far beyond safety.

It means weapon systems without alternate means of finding out where they were could end up hundreds of kilometers off course.

It wasn’t the first time this GPS ‘glitch’ had been observed in Nordic nations such as Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Civilian air traffic has reported several instances of their navigation systems going haywire.

DELVE DEEPER: Russia, China test GPS jamming systems’

In all, GPS signals have been reportedly disrupted five times in the northeastern region of Norway, Finland, and Sweden since autumn 2017. But the Trident Juncture exercise in October and November last year experienced the most intense attack.

Suspicion immediately fell upon Russia.

Moscow dismissed the claims.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Larov went so far as to call the allegations “fantasy.”

But, now, Norway says it has proof.

“Russia asked to give proof. We gave them the proof,” Norwegian Defence Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen told reporters after a bilateral meeting with Russia in Oslo.

Norwegian civilian science outposts had recorded the type, strength, and origins of the signals used to distort signals emitted by GPS satellites, he said.

This data has now been handed over to Moscow.

“Russia said ‘thank you, we will come back when our experts review that’. To have such an answer from Russia is a positive thing,” he said.

Minister Bakke-Jensen said Russia would have had to be well aware of the impact of its jamming systems.

“They were exercising very close to the border and they knew this will affect areas on the other side,” he said. “We recognize Russia’s right to exercise and train its capacities [but] it is not acceptable that this kind of activity affects security in Norwegian air space.”

And international conventions dictate notice be given of any kind of major military test.

The dates and locations of NATO’s Trident Juncture exercise were known to Russia for years.

But Moscow called a snap ‘live-fire’ exercise of its own warships on the boundaries of the NATO games. It also appears to have engaged in an undeclared test of its electronic jamming systems, encompassing Trident Juncture’s designated exclusion area.

Russia shows little regard for the ‘fallout’ of its electronic warfare testing.

Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs was forced to contact Moscow in October 2017 to request jamming exercises along its border as part of Russia’s annual Zapad war-games be halted due to public safety concerns.

“It was a large military exercise by a big neighbor and it disrupted civilian activities including air traffic, shipping, and fishing,” defence minister Bakke-Jensen said at the time.

U.S. To Base Rockets/Satellite Launches In Brazil

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

A few months ago, Vice President Pence traveled to Latin America with a specific visit to Brazil to discuss the location of a U.S. military base in Brazil. President Bolsonaro has waffled somewhat on this possibility, however, it is advancing. The mission for both the United States and Brazil is to counter China and Russia’s military influence in Latin America. Truth be told, the Brazilian military high command is against this ambition unless Russia displays further aggression.

(Ummm, they already have.)

Anyway… under the guise of a space program, the U.S. and Brazil have finalized the agreement for a U.S. space technology/military program in Alcantara, Brazil.

This will be located at the Forca Aerea Brasileira, the Brazilian Air Force base in the Alcantara Launch Center. Equatorial launches are beneficial so close to the equator due to the speed of the earth’s rotation, saving at least 30% on fuel.

Scott Pace, executive director of the US National Space Council, said on 18 March at a Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) industry group event that the TSA could be signed later that day. The remaining hurdle is approval by Brazil’s Congress, David Logsdon, head of CompTIA’s Space Enterprise Council, told Jane’s after the event. Coincidently, Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro is in Washington to meet with US President Donald Trump.

A TSA prevents unauthorised access to and transfer of protected technologies. US companies are interested in flying out of ALC due to its location for equatorial launches. Equatorial launches are advantageous as the Earth spins the fastest at the equator, giving launches an extra boost to reach orbit.

However, ALC’s remote location poses a challenge. Flying out of ALC would require US companies to first fly into Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo before connecting to a flight to ALC, adding an extra day of travel. An industry source told Jane’s that it is still challenging for US companies to close their business case with flying out of ALC due to the distance between the two countries, corruption, Bolsonaro’s mercurial personality, and the tendency of Brazilians to run hot-and-cold when dealing with the US.

However, the source said if a company can work out the logistics and partner with an honest local broker, the 30% efficiency savings for launching that close to the equator can be a major incentive.

Brazil can currently launch small rockets from this same base for what is known as microsatellites. Brazil is investing with partners an estimated $300 billion for the joint or multi-lateral launch business. When General Mattis was still the Secretary of Defense, he signed a Space Situational Awareness agreement during his own visit to Brazil. This is an effort to do real-time tracking of other rogue satellites, data of objects in space and debris.

Not to be overlooked, both Boeing and Lockheed Martin went to the Alcantara Space Center last December along with Vector Launch, Inc. to determine costs of payloads. Brazil appears to have a new corporation called Alada and yet another named Embraer SA to advance the aerospace programs along with seeking investors.

5 Words Conservatives Should Never Use, Starting With Conservative

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Words are weapons. In the “culture war,” words are the most powerful weapon.

Control of words is how revolutionaries get us to think a certain way—the way they wish us to think.

Early 20th-century Italian Communist Party leader and leading “cultural warrior” Antonio Gramsci put it this way: “Ideas and opinions are not spontaneously ‘born’ in each individual brain: they have had a center of formation, or irradiation, of dissemination, of persuasion—a group of men, or a single individual even, which has developed them and presented them in the political form of current reality.”

The tool for planting these ideas is words.

According to Monica Showalter, writing for Investor’s Business Daily, Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin weaponized words to win the Bolshevik Revolution:

“As early as 1903, at a party congress, Lenin won a membership issue by a single vote. But from then on, he called his faction ‘the Bolsheviks,’ or majoritarians, and his opponents ‘Mensheviks,’ or minoritarians. It didn’t matter that the Bolsheviks never were a true majority among Russia’s revolutionaries; what mattered was the perception of power.

“Lenin repeated the tactic by dubbing Bolsheviks ‘Reds’ to signal an affinity with the bloody violence of the French Revolution, while their battlefield opponents were saddled with ‘Whites’ to link them with the discredited French Bourbon dynasty. Lenin also took title to the word ‘democracy,’ disarming opponents who were then unable to project a coherent message. By controlling words, Lenin controlled perceptions of reality.”

Why, then, do freedom fighters and anti-communists persistently use the words of our enemies to our own disadvantage?

Why do we define ourselves using our opponents’ terms? Why do we label the enemy in their own terms, not ours?

To win the war, we must control the language. We can’t set the terms of battle while using the language of the enemy against our own best interests.

Here are five words that I believe we should stop using. They are all tainted and inaccurate. They have all been weaponized against us.

Conservative

Conservative has become almost synonymous with “fascist” in modern America. Once it meant to “conserve” the Constitution, American values, and the American way of life. Today, to much of America, it means someone who supports the status quo and big business, maybe even a reactionary, a racist, or a “white supremacist.”

Socialism has advanced so far in America that the only thing “conservatives” usually end up conserving is big government. In my home country of New Zealand, “conservatives” oppose selling off state-run businesses. They want to “conserve” state control! We even hear of “conservative” old guard communists in China and Russia trying to preserve “traditional” socialism.

Let’s abandon the word. It’s a terrible word for attracting young people to the liberty movement. Until we can come up with something better, let’s use “Constitutionalist.” It’s a little clumsy, but it’s accurate and seizes the moral high ground. It’s also hard to attack. Who wants to be identified as an anti-Constitutionalist?

Capitalism/Capitalist

To most Constitutionalists, capitalism and capitalist mean supporting business, industry, and the American Way. To socialists and most young Americans, these words mean heartless multinational corporations seeking profit at all costs and degrading the environment. Capital means money, huge wealth, and extravagance to most young people. It’s no longer understood as intellectual or material property used to produce wealth for all.

The word “capitalism” has been around since the 16th century but was popularized in the 19th century by French socialist Louis Blanc and the founders of “communism”: Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. “Capitalism” is essentially a Marxist word that our enemies use to beat us with.

Let’s resurrect “free enterprise.” It’s accurate, it’s idealistic, and it’s dynamic. When people hear the words “free enterprise,” they don’t think of faceless mega-bankers and Wall Street hustlers. “Free enterprise” conjures up images of young entrepreneurs taking on the world, family farms, and mom and pop stores. Most Americans believe in “free enterprise,” not so much in “capitalism.”

Democracy

The United States is not and never has been a “democracy,” although you wouldn’t know that from watching Fox News or most Democratic and many Republican Party politicians.

The United States of America is a “republic,” derived from the Latin “res publica”—the “people’s thing.”

Democracy means simply the will of the majority. The Founding Fathers were scholars of history. They knew that “majority rule” would inevitably lead to tyranny. Rights that are subject only to the whim of 50 percent plus one, are no rights at all.

The Founding Fathers designed a far superior system: the “constitutional republic.” Rights were to be enshrined in law and protected by a written constitution that would be protected from the tyranny of the majority—or “mob rule.” Some elements of “democracy” were incorporated into the system, to elect public officials and later to vote on ballot measures, but the fundamental rights of the people were seen as coming from God, never to be subjected to the popular vote.

A republic is far superior to a democracy in that it uses checks and balances to protect individual liberties against oppression from any quarter—including majorities.

The United States is a “republic.” We should always use that term. Never should we play into our enemies’ hands by downgrading this nation to “democracy” status.

Liberal

The Green New Deal isn’t a “liberal” proposal—it is socialist. The $15-per-hour minimum wage is not a liberal measure—it comes directly from the Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA. Antifa isn’t a “liberal” group, as Fox News often labels it—it’s communist/anarchist. Socialist groups regularly label their opposition fascists, Nazis, and white supremacists. We call them “liberal.” Socialist is the appropriate label.

Almost every policy coming out of today’s Democratic Party is demonstrably socialist. Most of the “liberal” commentators we see on TV are in fact, socialists. The word “liberal” is far too kind and no longer accurate. Let’s call socialists socialists. No more giving them a respectability they don’t deserve.

Progressive

The currently fashionable word “progressive” has partially replaced “liberal” as a euphemism for socialist. There is, however, a subtle difference. “Progressive,” in its current usage, came out of the socialist and communist movements of the 20th century. According to Marxist theory, humanity is slowly and inevitably “progressing” toward communism. Therefore, anyone assisting this historical process was, by definition, a “progressive.”

“Progressive” was used by Marxists as a code word. Put “progressive” into an organization’s name and all the comrades would know it was communist, even if the general public didn’t. Former communist David Horowitz was active in the Sunnyside Young Progressives as a teenager. In the 1950s, the Communist Party of New Zealand’s junior wing was known as the Progressive Youth League. “Progressive” also was used to identify friends and allies in the movement. “She’s a good progressive” didn’t necessarily mean the woman in question was a Communist Party member, but that she was at least working in the interests of the movement.

Never should we talk about “progressives.” These people and the movements they promote are working, whether they acknowledge it or not, to advance communism. “Progressives” are, whether they know it or not, Marxists. That’s how they should be labeled: Marxists promoting Marxist ideas.

President Donald Trump has shown us how to use weaponized words like no other president in generations. Who can forget “Lyin’ Hillary” (Hillary Clinton), “Low-energy Jeb” (Jeb Bush), “Pocahontas” (Sen. Elizabeth Warren), or his masterful use of “fake news,” which drives the liberal—whoops, I mean socialist—media nuts.

In his 2019 State of the Union speech, Trump didn’t attack “liberalism” or “progressivism”; he specifically and accurately attacked “socialism.”

We all need to follow the president’s example. We must stop using the enemy’s lexicon. Any good duelist understands that he who chooses the weaponry has the advantage.

Let’s stop using the weapons our enemy chooses for us. We are in a fight for the survival of our civilization. This is a life-or-death battle between good and evil. Let’s choose our own weapons of war and fight this war to win it.

America Deserves Much Beto than O’Rourke

By: Lloyd Marcus

Watching Beto O’Rourke announce his candidacy for president, I had snake oil salesmen come to mind.  Everything about this guy is fake, which makes him a perfect candidate for fake news media to celebrate.

My wife Mary and I spent several weeks in Texas campaigning for Ted Cruz, fighting to stop O’Rourke from stealing Cruz’s Senate seat.  It was incredible watching O’Rourke’s TV ads.  Funded with mega-millions from outsiders, O’Rourke’s entire U.S. Senate campaign was built upon deceiving voters.

For example: While claiming to be pro-Second Amendment, great deceiver O’Rourke voted against every piece of pro-gun legislation that came to his desk.  To deceive voters into believing he is a regular guy, millionaire O’Rourke posted a video of himself in a laundromat doing laundry.  O’Rourke came disturbingly close to scamming Texans into electing him over Ted Cruz.

In his elect-me-or-we’re-all-gonna-die presidential campaign announcement, O’Rourke claimed there are crises in our economy, democracy, and climate.  O’Rourke urgently warned Americans that we are in a “moment of peril.”  What on Earth is O’Rourke talking about?

Our Economy: Trump has our economy booming.  Black unemployment is the lowest in recorded history.  Hispanics and women are also doing great in Trump’s economy.

Our Democracy: Mr. O’Rourke, the truth is, you and your fellow Democrats are the greatest threats to our democracy.  Democrats seek to criminalize conservative thoughts, conservative speech, and gun ownership.  Given their vindictive destruction of Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort, Democrats outrageously seek to criminalize working for Trump. 

Our Climate: For the gazillionth time, man-made climate change is a proven hoax.  O’Rourke passionately warns that not embracing the Green New Deal will lead to the extinction of the human race in a decade or so.  Here’s a reminder of the insanity in the Green New Deal.  By 2030, we must end air travel; end the use of fossil fuels; mandate that every new job be unionized; decommission every nuclear plant; rebuild every building in America for state-of-the-art energy efficiency; and let the government fund everyone, including deadbeats who refuse to work.

O’Rourke continued his trademark deception tactic.  He said we should ensure immigrants “lawful paths to work.”  Wait a minute, dude.  You and your fellow Democrats say screw our immigration laws; let’s roll out the red carpet for illegals.  Democrats say because we have pillaged the world’s resources and because we are racist, sexist, and homophobic, we do not have the moral authority to keep anyone out of our country.  Not only is O’Rourke fighting to stop Trump from building a border wall to keep Americans safe, but he wants to tear down the existing border wall in El Paso, Texas.

O’Rourke said we should “listen to and lift up rural America.”  The truth is, O’Rourke and his fellow Democrats despise rural America.  Rural Americans voted for Trump, desire to keep their guns, attend Christian churches on Sundays, believe that marriage is between one man and one woman, and believe that abortion and infanticide are evil.  Pandering to rural America is simply more of O’Rourke’s campaign of deception.

As a black American, I was stunned when O’Rourke said we should “confront the hard truths of slavery, and segregation, and suppression in these United States of America.”  What the heck is he talking about?  Ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865 ended slavery in America.  The only segregation I am aware of is black students segregating themselves on college campuses, demanding black student unions and race-based housing facilities.  Who are the masses of Americans O’Rourke claims we are suppressing?  Do you see O’Rourke using Democrats’ disgusting tactic of dividing Americans into bogus victimized voting blocs?

After spewing gloom and doom, America-sucks, and everyone-is-a-victim lies, O’Rourke had the audacity to say, “This is going to be a positive campaign.”  I laughed out loud.

O’Rourke is anti-law enforcement, voting against ICE.  He calls our nation’s police “the new Jim Crow,” which cruelly paints targets on the backs of our brave men and women in blue to be assassinated by Black Lives Matter.

Kate Steinle was shot and killed by an illegal alien who was deported several times and kept coming back to his sanctuary city, San Francisco.  Kate’s Law would give mandatory jail time to illegals who repeatedly break our immigration laws.  O’Rourke voted against Kate’s Law.  Supposed man of the people O’Rourke voted against Trump’s tax cuts.  O’Rourke wants single-payer health care, which leads to rationed health care, where the government makes funding decisions, determining who lives and who dies.

While in Texas campaigning for Ted Cruz, I got to witness O’Rourke’s deceptive tactics up close when he ran for U.S. Senate.  My brother and sister fellow Americans, our country deserves much better than sociopath conman Beto O’Rourke.

US Media Compares To Joseph Goebbels’ Operations

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Ah yes… Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda for Nazi, Germany from 1933 to 1945. His job was to only present favorable stories for a positive image of the regime and to spread hatred of the Jews. He used radio, literature, music, textbooks, printed posters/newspapers and theater to display the propaganda. He too was responsible for burning books… beginning to sound familiar?

Media and Marxist activist groups in the United States are all pounding the same drumbeat that is pro-socialism, applies to parts of stories and is intent on holding others accountable that don’t fit the agenda.

Can you count the ways this is done using the methods and media outlets like the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and those pesky websites like Media Matters?

Well, when Reuters reports on Reuters… take notice. Senator Cruz took notice.

So, the Reuters backstory goes like this… even their summary is lacking but try it on for size anyway.

(When Reuters held the story, obviously people still had not read it when they did publish it as Beto was able to raise $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign announcement. He beat Bernie and all the other 2020 contenders…..sigh.)

Maybe it is just cool to campaign on a restaurant counter.

Or to skateboard onto a stage.

Presidential?

(Reuters) – Reuters reporter Joseph Menn exclusively revealed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke belonged to one of the best-known groups of computer hackers as a teenager.

Within minutes, his special report was the most popular story on Reuters.com here and was picked up by other news outlets. But the origin of the story goes back more than two years.

Members of the group, which calls itself Cult of the Dead Cow, protected O’Rourke’s secret for decades, reluctant to compromise the former Texas Congressman’s political career.

After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.

In an interview with Reuters senior producer Jane Lee, Menn explains how he broke the story and got O’Rourke to open up about his hacking days.

“I decided to write a book about the Cult of the Dead Cow because they were the most interesting and influential hacking group in history. They illustrated a lot of the things that I think are fascinating about hacking and security work. Focus on Trump’s speech after [his] attack on Muslims.

“While I was looking into the Cult of the Dead Cow, I found out that they had a member who was sitting in Congress. I didn’t know which one. But I knew that they had a member of Congress.

“And then I figured out which one it was. And the members of the group wouldn’t talk to me about who it was. They wouldn’t confirm that it was this person unless I promised that I wouldn’t write about it until after the November election. That’s because the member of Congress had decided to run for Senate. Beto O’Rourke is who it was.

“I met Beto O’Rourke. I said ‘I’m writing a book about Cult of the Dead Cow, I think it’s really interesting. I know you were in this group. This book is going to publish after November and your Senate race is over. And he said, ‘OK.’

“And he told me about his time in the Cult of the Dead Cow.”

Where Did Some Of Venezuela’s Gold Show Up?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Uganda?

Remember that Venezuelan president, Nicolas Maduro, is a virtual puppet of Cuba. Going back years, during the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution, Chavez hosted President Yoweri Museveni, then president of Uganda. Cuba was known over the years to give scholarships to Ugandans. The relationship is long and deep.

Then as recently as February of 2019, the Kampala is allegedly investigating that top Venezuelan politicians are using Ugandan passports to smuggle key people out of Venezuela into China and possibly other countries that stand with the Maduro regime.

Further, Venezuela attempted to remove some of its gold reserves parked in Britain, worth an estimated $1.2 billion but were denied at the behest of the United States. The 8 tons gold residing in Venezuela was in fact removed this past February to an unknown location. However, in 2018, at least 23 tonnes of mined gold was transported from Venezuela to Turkey by plane.

Maduro is attempting to sell gold on the international market to pay for basic needs for his country’s elite. Last February, an Abu Dhabi company known as Noor Capital bought 3 tons of Venezuelan gold. Since oil production in Venezuela has dropped significantly and sales on the global market have dropped, gold is the next avenue to generate immediate funds.

Venezuela Gold Reserves

China and Russia are looking for exclusive oil deals from Venezuela due to the US sanctions. In fact, PDVSA, the Venezuelan oil operation is opening an office in Russia.

Ugandan authorities are investigating unexplained imports of 7.4 tonnes of gold worth US$300 million that is suspected of originating with President Maduro’s regime in Venezuela.

Refinery (AGR), the country’s largest refinery, Reuters reported on Wednesday. AGR confirmed that the gold arrived from South America but rejected claims of smuggling.

“All our transactions are legal and well documented,” the company said in a statement to OCCRP, dismissing the allegations as “fake news.”
Fred Enanga, a spokesman for Uganda’s police, told Reuters that AGR received two shipments of 3.8 and 3.6 tonnes at the beginning of March however neither passed through official customs entry points.

Police raided AGR premises on March 7 but found the lighter batch had disappeared.

Flights this month from Caracas to Entebbe have raised suspicions that Nicolas Maduro’s government is smuggling gold out of the country and selling it to traders in Africa and the Middle East in an attempt to prop up its sanctions-hit economy.

An airline source told The Times that a European charter company was contracted to fly four tonnes of gold from Caracas to Entebbe early this year.

The Venezuelan opposition previously claimed a jet owned by Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza transported gold to Greece. Alexis Tsipras, Greece’s prime minister, is one of the few European leaders still supporting Maduro.

Venezuela’s ambassador to Greece, Freddy Fernández, denied the reports.

“It is foolish to believe that the Venezuelan foreign minister himself was taking the gold out of the country. The story is part of a concerted attack against our country,” he told the Greek news outlet Efimerida ton Syntakton.

Investigators are looking to establish where the gold came from, who owns it and how it was shipped into the country, he said.

Uganda has become a regional smuggling hub for gold with corruption and widespread mismanagement proving profitable for officials and international investors, a report from Global Witness claims.

AGR was accused of facilitating gold smuggling from conflict regions in the Democratic Republic of Congo in an investigation by The Sentry, an African financial investigations organization co-founded by actor George Clooney.

AGR Chief Executive Officer, Alain Goetz denied the accusations, calling it “yet another pathetic attempt to destroy the much-needed reforms and changes needed in the African gold industry.”

Will Hedge Funds Reinvent Themselves?

By: Kent Engelke | Capitol Securities

A hedge fund pioneer whose quantitative models became the basis for today’s algorithmic trading models is on the verge of throwing in the towel.  David Harding is credited with pioneering the quantitative models in the mid-1980s, models that are now greatly replicated and are failing miserably because of the popularity of trend-following and risk-based parity models. 

Harding commented that he now has to “reinvent himself” given the “perceived efficiency of computers that systematically buy and sell according to programmed instructions,” trading on information that is perhaps nothing but noise.

Many market luminaries have commented about the impact of high-speed computer-based trading that has destroyed historical benchmarks, creating a false sense of liquidity.

Over the past three years, a record number of hedge funds have closed while capitalization-based passive ETFs have flourished. To put it differently, the best and brightest minds in finance are going out of business while the passive no-brainer investment funds focusing almost entirely on capitalization are doing great. 

Wow!  Talk about an imbalance. Will this massively overcrowded strategy follow the same path as hedge funds? If history is a guide, the answer is yes. A basic premise to this strategy—if you can call passive buying a strategy—is to find more people to buy more of the same over-owned companies. Sometime the buyers will exhaust themselves or conditions will change.

The greatest investors have been big picture people, focusing on the substance of geopolitics and macroeconomic research versus thoughtless style.

Many are focused on today’s commencement of the two-day FOMC meeting. As widely known, the Central Bank radically changed direction on January 8th adopting a “patient” outlook regarding monetary policy following a tumultuous December. Two weeks earlier, the Fed was focused upon a more active monetary policy including increasing bond sales.

No change is expected but I am certain every word will be parsed. 

I continue to argue that growth will continue to surprise on the upside, strength that may again alter monetary policy expectations.

Markets were quiet relatively quiet yesterday. Will the calm extend into today?

Last night the foreign markets were up. London was up 0.59%,  Paris was up 0.50% and Frankfurt was up 0.87%. China was down 0.18%, Japan was down 0.08% and Hang Sang was up 0.19%.

The Dow should open nominally higher awaiting numerous central bank announcements. The 10-year is unchanged at 2.60%.

Facing hard truths: Are you unwittingly funding the leftist takeover of America?

By: Leo Hohmann

One week ago, I posted a speech I gave to a group of Georgia Republicans on “Knowing Your Enemy: The Red-Green Axis of Evil shows its Face in Washington.”

The response has been overwhelming. As a result, I am going to offer a special opportunity to learn more about the Marxist game-plan, which you can read about at the end of this article.

My speech to the Georgia Republicans addressed the growing alliance between the Islamic supremacists and the neo-Marxist thought leaders embedded in our media, our universities and our political-legal structures. This alliance is on the move both in America and across the globe. Its proponents include hugely recognizable names like Pope Francis and George Soros, a new breed of socialist politicians like Stacey Abrams of Georgia, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Andrew Gillum of Florida, and congresswomen Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

These politicians typically read from scripts handed to them by their handlers and are very well spoken as long as they don’t get caught going “off script.” They are plugged into a lucrative money pipeline continuously refueled with cash by elites like San Francisco lawyer Steve Phillips, who married into the billionaire family of Susan Sandler; the Soros clan; billionaire hedge-fund manager Tom Steyer; just to name a few. Canada’s Justin Trudeau and the UK’s Jeremy Corbin are also on this same team of global Marxists seeking to transform their once-free nations into something more authoritarian, where free expression is taken off the table for anyone who doesn’t agree with their globalist agenda that punishes America and Israel at every opportunity.

For more on how the money pipeline works, researcher Trevor Loudon has already done the heavy lifting for us in his excellent article published by the Epoch Times.

Many of you have contacted me, shocked, and asked what we can do to stop this race toward socialism, which we know will accelerate as soon as the Democrats win back the White House. And they will win if we continue to ignore the biggest elephant in the room — our lack of funding and the utter dominance of the mainstream media by the left. When that day comes, it will be open season on anyone who dares to speak up on behalf of the Judeo-Christian values that undergird our Constitution. In short, our Constitution itself is in danger of being gutted.

What can we do about it?

So my answer to these inquirers who ask, “What can we do?” is this: Spread the word about writers/researchers like myself and Trevor Loudon, who dish out the real news and expose the fakes. But don’t stop there. We must follow the money!

If you follow the trail of greenbacks, you will find out that most of the money flow to the armies of left-wing worker-bees battling in the trenches for a socialist America starts in the places you would least expect—in conservative families, in the churches, in iconic American institutions that we believe, or want to believe, are still pure.

I know it sounds shocking, but let me repeat what I just said: Much of the money that is flowing into the coffers of evil organizations like Planned Parenthood, the anti-gun lobby, and far-left community organizing groups, originates from the pocketbooks of regular, patriotic, God-fearing Americans.

The problem is that the left, while our parents and grandparents slept, quietly hijacked almost every cultural institution in our country. Once purely American groups like the Girl Scouts, the AARP, the Chamber of Commerce and some of the largest church denominations have all been flipped in recent years to the point where they are on board with the insane policies of open borders, abortion, special privileges for an ever-increasing cadre of sub-groups claiming to be victims, and socialism under the guise of “sustainable development” or as recently rebranded, the “green new deal.”

  • The AARP, with an annual budget of $1.5 billion, supports liberal causes too numerous to mention. It put its considerable clout behind Obamacare and the socialization of our medical system. Are you an older American looking for an alternative? I have good news: There are now at least half a dozen alternatives, some of which advocate for conservative causes!
  • Do you buy Girl Scout cookies? As adorable as those little girls outside Wal-Mart may be, you might want to reconsider. This is not the same iconic, all-American organization you grew up with. The Girl Scouts provide support to Planned Parenthood, which is quite likely the most evil organization on the planet, actually profiting off the sale of the dismembered body parts of aborted babies.
  • Are you paying the tuition bill for your child to attend a university just because you went to that university back when it actually believed in free speech and intellectual honesty? Now, there’s a good bet that same university’s version of free speech excludes the conservative point of view, so why support it?
  • What about Hollywood? Most of the directors, producers, and actors loathe us and our “old-fashioned” values. We enrich them. They turn around and use their riches to donate generously to Democrat political campaigns. Stop buying tickets to their movies!
  • If you believe there’s a better way to help Third World refugees than permanently resettling them into the United States, then don’t buy your yogurt from Chobani, which is a big supporter of the refugee resettlements, staffing roughly 30 percent of its U.S. plants with refugee labor.
  • Leftist universities gobble up billions every year from conservative American families, who send them their money and their kids, who get indoctrinated in leftist politics and anti-Israel Jew-hatred. Let’s not kid ourselves: ALL public universities are leftist universities. I repeat: ALL OF THEM are leftist, and they’ve been fleecing God’s people on a daily basis for decades. Send your kid to a private Christian college and if they prefer a leftist public institution, let them foot the bill themselves!

We also bear the responsibility to ask where our church tithes and offerings are going. Typically, a percentage of all these donations get sent back to the denominational headquarters. It’s time to start asking questions about where some of that money ends up. You might be surprised.

  • The Catholic Church has been funding Saul Alinsky-aligned community organizations since the 1970s. For a brief history of the atheist Alinsky’s infiltration of the Catholic Church in America, I recommend the documentary A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.
  • Once good and noble Protestant organizations like World Relief are now more involved in left-wing politics than actual missionary activities.
  • What about Amazon, owned by leftist billionaire Jeff Bezos. Amazon has wiped out much of its competition, but often we can find other alternatives for the products we buy. Even if you have to spend a few dollars more to do business with the little guy, you’ll have the satisfaction of not contributing to Bezos’ many horrific business and philanthropic ventures, including the propaganda organ known as the Washington Post, which Bezos purchased a few years back and now uses to bash conservatives with fake news like the hit pieces it did on the Covington Catholic boys.
  • Then there’s Starbucks, that powerhouse of caffeinated beverages run by leftist CEO Howard Schultz, who is thinking of running for president. There are tons of coffeehouses. Find one that won’t put more money into left-wing causes and candidates.
  • Instead of using Google, which tracks your searches and helps China crack down on its Christian population, use DuckDuckgo.com, which doesn’t store your data, doesn’t sell it to advertisers, doesn’t work with communist dictatorships, and doesn’t discriminate against conservative websites in your searches! It is far superior to Google and doesn’t cost a thing!

The left has been voting with its dollars for years. They avoid conservative establishments like Chick-Fil-A and Hobby Lobby while dragging their names through the mud. That’s because they are serious about their agenda and want to see it take over. Conservatives need to get in the game and also watch where their dollars are going.

The end game is to destabilize Western democracies by driving a wedge between different people groups that make up nations. Like the Nazis and the Bolsheviks before them, these radical globalists hate the idea of nationhood and the very humanity that makes up nations.

Upcoming opportunity to learn more

If you want to learn more about this trap being set for us and how not to fall for the deceptions, I invite you to tune in to a special series of free webinars in which I am honored to be a participant. From the comfort of your own home and broken up into four convenient time slots, you will learn about how this alliance is embedding itself into so many churches of almost all denominational backgrounds. We are calling it “The Enemy Within” and this enemy will increasingly be targeting and blaming you, the remnant faithful Christians and Jews, for all the world’s problems. So we’d better get prepared.

You can register here to attend all four webinars in March and April.

The problem, you see, is that one side in the culture wars is deadly serious and puts its money where its mouth is. The other side, our side, mostly talks a good game while handing money to the enemy. It’s time to put on your battle gear, the full armor of Christ as St. Paul said, and get in the game.

Meet Maduro’s Gang: The Colectivos

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Not only does Maduro while struggling to hold on to power in Venezuela make full use of 25,000 Cuban military forces along with a security team provided by Putin, known as the Wagner Group, he also terrorizes his own citizens by deploying his ‘Colectivos’.

Really?

Yes, they are rather like his own armada on motorcycles. And they too patrol the border between Venezuela and Columbia. The Colectivos have been around for quite a while, in fact, they were salaried going back to the Chavez regime. They have cell or branch operations in and around Caracas. They tell the media and citizens their job is to clean up corruption, enforce laws and to assist the police. Yeah….SURE.

It is likely that the Colectivos also coordinate with the FAES, that is supposed to be the Venezuelan police but actually, most of them come from the Bolivian government under orders. Nonetheless, all of these groups continue to believe in and carry on the Chavez revolution.

Negotiating with Maduro to get him to leave power and move to a sunny island as John Bolton suggested hardly means there will be peace after his departure given the Marxist/communist operations that will remain. The interim president, Guiado, with the help of almost 80 countries will hardly have an easy transition to any new government.

The Colectivos are not a gang but rather a Maduro/Chavez sanctioned paramilitary unit. They operate in every part of Venezuelan society, including schools, courts, retail stores, and hospitals. They control sports, provide food and humanitarian needs, television and radio and control community centers. Sounds rather like al Qaeda or the Islamic State, doesn’t it? Many of the Colectivos received training from FARC. That was/is the terror group that Obama and John Kerry negotiated with that was/is based in Columbia (they still operate there today, by the way).

The Colectivos have direct access to government resources including intelligence, money and weapons and tear gas. Many of them work during various shifts for the Maduro and the Bolivian government. Under approval of Maduro, the Colectivos deal in the sale and distribution of drugs, gambling and extort anyone they can.

Introducing The Cheollima Civil Defense

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Do you wonder if anyone in North Korea wants to overthrow the Premier Leader, Kim Jong-Un? The answer is yes.

What does Madrid, Spain have to do with North Korea? The constant communications channels between the United States and North Korea are centered in Madrid, where Kim Hyok Chol, a former ambassador is based. What is not reported is the North Korean embassy in Madrid was raided last month. Eight people inside were beaten and interrogated by a group of alleged thugs just before the Trump-Un summit. Embassy employees were gagged and computers along with cell phones were stolen and the attackers apparently sped away from the embassy in diplomatic vehicles. Police did investigate after calls were made to law enforcement.

Oh yeah, there are many that are aware of this event that are blaming the CIA.

But hold on, let’s go deeper.

The Cheollima Civil Defense operation was launched in 2017. This group is committed to overthrowing lil’ Kim. They on occasion go by another name, that being Free Joseon. In March of 2017, there was a video uploaded. Allegedly, Kim Han-Sol was behind the video due in part to his father being killed in Malaysia in 2017 when 2 women attacked him at the airport, rubbing his face with the VX nerve agent.

Cheollima Civil Defense assists people attempting to defect from North Korea. By the way, the word/term ‘Joseon’ is a very old historical name for Korea. There has been chatter for more than a year that the South Korea spy agency is behind Cheollima. Furthermore, the group has from time to time coordinated with the Netherlands, China, and the United States for helping with security and protection.

It is thought that the leader of Cheollima, Kim Han-Sol fled to the Netherlands and continues to operate from there under the local government’s protection. Other family members likely fled North Korea via Taiwan and may also be under Dutch protection.

The intrigue of diplomacy, dissidents, and spying.

The Green Killing Machine and the Red Jihad

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

The media have their narrative: the New Zealand mosque shooter was a gun-toting Trump supporter who hated Muslims. His “manifesto” declares, “The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People’s Republic of China.” This looks like a case of Red Jihad.

The media have been pressuring the high-tech companies to destroy the evidence about what this killer really thought about current and world events. They do not want us to investigate this matter without them filtering the information. I located a copy of his so-called “manifesto.” Try to find it. Let me know if you find it. Email me at [email protected] It will give you an insight into his mind-set.

He was not a conservative or a Christian. He was a self-proclaimed “eco-fascist” who admires Red China. In China, they put Muslims in camps. Rather than do this, law enforcement should do a better job of monitoring Jihadist sermons within the mosques and closing down those mosques which facilitate violence and murder. Our FBI should do a better job on going after the enemies within using mosques to plan attacks against Americans.

Why ‘Minimum Wage’ Laws Are Cruel

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Few government measures are crueler to the poor and disadvantaged in society than minimum wage laws.

Promoted by self-righteous socialists and fawning, gutless “conservatives” as a way to help the poor, minimum wage mandates demonstrably result in higher unemployment, stifle small business, and trap the most vulnerable into a life of dependency and unemployment.

Ironically, the very same socialists who push for minimum wage laws later cite the poverty and suffering of small businesses resulting from those minimum wage laws as a way to discredit the free market—even though minimum wage laws are anti-free market.

To understand the damage that can be fully attributed to minimum wage laws, it’s necessary to understand the pricing mechanism in a free-market context. In a completely free market, the price of goods and services is determined solely by the law of supply and demand.

The Deceiver’s Disciple

By: Tabitha Korol

Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands could die. – Don Boys, Ph.D.

The mission of the jihadi/jihada (one who engages in holy “war with non-Muslims to establish the religion”) is to bring Islamic law, sharia, to the world, whether through peaceful or violent means, and Ilhan Omar has dutifully begun her vocation for Allah, who is described in the Quran as the greatest deceiver of them allIt goes on to say that ALL deception belongs completely to Allah, that Allah actually raises wicked individuals to deceive and scheme, and commands people to do evil so that he may then have reason to destroy them – for Islamic supremacy.  Mohammed led by example when he broke promises and treaties with three Jewish tribes, Banu Qaynuqa (624), Banu Nadir (625) and Banu Qurayza (627), and subsequently beheaded all the men, captured and enslaved the women and children, and enriched himself and his troops with the towns’ bounties.  We must, therefore, recognize that Omar is mandated by religious doctrine to emulate Mohammed’s deception, using any means possible against her victims to advance the Islamic ideology.  “When hate crimes against [her] and [her] followers don’t exist, they have to be invented,” to deflect attention from the jihadi onto the Muslims as victims.

Since her installation as a member of Congress, Omar has repeatedly censured Israel and Israeli and American Jews, making antisemitism acceptable and freely spoken by the re-awakening antisemitic community.  Her allegations are a stealth technique of projection, as when the subject attributes his own unpleasant traits, impulses or ideas to another.  For instance, Omar accuses Israelis of “abuse against women,” “apartheid” and “occupation,” distinctly Muslim deeds.  She accuses Jews of dual loyalty to Israel, but not people of, say, the Palestinian territories, Somalia, Iran, Central, and South America, who might donate their earnings to provide financial assistance to their homelands.  Lest we forget, these three Muslim lands are known supporters of terrorism, whereas Israel is known to be the only democratic country in the Middle East, one of America’s most steadfast allies, and one that provides services that benefit people throughout the world – and this is the one she denigrates and boycotts.  There can be no other valid reason except the centuries-nurtured visceral hate.

Global Climate Strike: Students Push Green Communism

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Tomorrow, thousands of students across the United States will stage a massive walkout from their schools in the name of human-caused global warming. The name of the protest is the U.S. Youth Climate Strike. The roots of this young green and red communism start with socialist radicals in Europe.

Most rational adults know that the climate change farce is just a load of crap. It’s called ‘weather’. Even the co-founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, says it is a load of bullcrap. There are many credible scientists who disparage it as well.

The environmental Marxists have gotten their hands on our children and we have allowed it to happen. They may claim to be ‘green’ in nature, but scratch the surface just a little and you will see they are ‘red’ to the core. As in communism.

In my opinion, Al Gore is one of the most dangerous men on the planet. He knows what he is peddling is a lie. He does it to garner ever more power and wealth. It is the ultimate Ponzi scheme pushed by puppets such as Socialist Bernie Sanders and Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Haven’t you heard? Green is the new red. David Hogg and Ilhan Omar are both pushing the event. Any questions?

Tucker Carlson and the Real Victims of Media Censorship

By: Cliff Kincaid

Billionaire Bill Gates is pouring some of his wealth into development of an HIV/AIDS vaccine that will be mandatory for all young people, even children, in the U.S. Perhaps a scheduled “breakthrough” in this controversial effort and a plan for universal HIV vaccinations explains why major media organs and corporate and government officials are being used to demonize those concerned about the safety of vaccines. The U.N.’s World Health Organization (WHO) has gone so far as to issue a report ranking “vaccine hesitancy” as one of the top “Ten Threats to Global Health in 2019.”

With a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine on the horizon, we should be hesitant. The AIDS vaccine could be a major threat to global health. As a vaccine, it gives people a form of the virus that causes AIDS on the assumption that we won’t develop the entire deadly disease. If this assumption is faulty, it could cause HIV/AIDS in millions of healthy people, many of them children and the elderly. There was a swine flu vaccine scandal in the 1970s, when people got neurological disorders from the vaccine before it was withdrawn.

Another Russian Plot?

Now that the Russian “collusion” story involving President Trump has run out of steam, new villains have to be identified. Indeed, Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who is still pursuing Russia-gate against President Trump, has openly called for big companies such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook to censor information casting doubt on the effectiveness of vaccines.

Although it has been open to different views in the past, the “conservative” Fox News channel is now apparently backing Facebook’s effort to “crack down on misinformation about vaccines.”  Reporter Dan Springer’s story was headlined, “Study links Russia to US misinformation campaign on vaccinations.” But his own story quoted research saying the Russians were playing both sides – running articles for and against vaccines.

Despite claims to the contrary from Big Government, Big Pharma, and Big Media, many people believe there is evidence linking the rise in autism among children to the MMR vaccine. Rather than have an open debate, the controversial film “Vaxxed,” which explores corruption in science regarding the MMR vaccine, was yanked from theaters and pulled from Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival. The producers of “Vaxxed” also report their film was removed from Amazon Video, including Prime and streaming, and Pinterest removed searches about safer vaccines and vaccine injury.

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, is the parent of a vaccine injured child and draws attention to children and young people now being subjected to 69 doses of 16 vaccines (starting on the day of birth) by the age of 18. She recently recorded a video on “The New Internet Police” that explains how a coordinated attack is already underway on those who believe in personal freedom and informed consent in regard to these vaccines. Her group is being actively censored and treated almost like a “hate group.” On January 19, she notes, the editorial board of the liberal New York Times declared that “anti-vaxxers” are “the enemy.”

Fox News should resist this kind of censorship scheme. But its own host, Tucker Carlson,  author of Ship of Fools, made a fool of himself years ago by spouting offensive nonsense on a shock jock show hosted by “Bubba the Love Sponge.” Now, Carlson’s job is hanging in the balance, as he claims being victimized by “the mob.” He has a national media platform that he can use to defend himself, and Fox News is sticking by him (for the time being.) A media personality who generates over $70,000 per speaking appearance, Carlson also has the Daily Caller News Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Daily Caller, which he founded, doing articles on his behalf. It has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Koch Brothers and the Sarah Scaife Foundation.

But this face of modern conservatism is now looking like a major embarrassment to the conservative movement. He’s not even that conservative; he frequently brings on anti-American journalist and Edward Snowden collaborator Glenn Greenwald as an authoritative source of information on Russia-gate, and allows Fox contributor Tammy Bruce, a pro-abortion lesbian activist, to posture on his show as a deep conservative thinker. It looks like Tucker has personal knowledge of the “Ship of Fools” he writes about. He may be going overboard.   

Who’s More Foolish?

What’s far more important than the fate of a rich wise guy talk show host confused about conservatism is that we have a national debate on Fox and other channels on such matters as the well-established and verifiable fact that vaccines do cause injury and death, and that an HIV/AIDS vaccine is being fast-tracked. Many people even today do not realize that while vaccines work for a large majority of people, they can also cause serious health problems, even death, for some. In recognition of this fact, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. A National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to compensate victims of vaccines has dispensed over $4 billion for vaccine injuries and deaths.

The common sense driving the parental concern crosses ideological lines. In my case, one day after the birth of our third child, hospital personnel tried to take him away for a hepatitis B vaccine shot. It’s because of the work of Barbara Loe Fisher and the National Vaccine Information Center that I was skeptical of some vaccines. My wife and I refused to have our child injected with this controversial vaccine. Six months later, concerns were raised about possible mercury exposure in children given hepatitis B vaccines containing thimerosal, a preservative derived from mercury, a toxic metal that can cause immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions. Thimerosal is a preservative that was used as an additive in vaccines to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination.

Hepatitis B mostly affects drug users, the sexually promiscuous, blood transfusion recipients, and health care workers. So why are innocent children who are not at risk being required to be vaccinated? It’s because the government doesn’t want or can’t identify those who ARE at risk. It’s easier to get the children, who are least likely to get the disease. The same is likely to be true for an HIV/AIDS vaccine. Even assuming that such a vaccine could be developed, it will be easier for national and global public health officials to target those for vaccination who are at less risk of contracting the disease. 

I interviewed Barbara Loe Fisher four years ago. “There is a tightening of the noose around the people’s neck when it comes to being able to make vaccine choices,” she said on America’s Survival TV. She also discussed the prospect of a mandatory AIDS vaccine. She is the co-author,  DPT: A Shot in the Dark (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1985), and has served on several federal advisory panels and committees. But her organization today is facing a massive censorship campaign because it stands in the way of global and national efforts to inject populations with vaccines containing controversial and sometimes deadly ingredients.

National HIV/AIDS Emergency

Years ago, I launched the Committee to Protect Medical Freedom, a project of America’s Survival, Inc. and held the first national conference opposing a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine. Barbara was a speaker. Jim Turner, a Washington, D.C. attorney and expert on the swine flu vaccine scandal of the 1970s, discussed how government vaccination programs can go horribly wrong. We examined how President Bill Clinton had declared AIDS a “national security threat,” created a Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS through an executive order, and that U.S. military personnel were being subjected to experimental vaccines. President Barack Obama issued his own follow-up executive order, “Implementing the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States for 2015-2020,” in 2015, and President Trump continued implementation of this strategy in 2017.

Such an “emergency” declaration could also be used today on the civilian population.

The recent controversy over vaccines suggests a governmental effort at the national and even global levels to roll out a controversial new mandatory vaccine policy, possibly involving an HIV/AIDS vaccine. Does President Trump understand what the bureaucrats are doing?  

Despite the censorship, a Coalition for Informed Consent in vaccinations has been established. The NVIC is one of dozens of member organizations around the country opposed to mandatory vaccination laws. Hundreds of concerned citizens favoring freedom of choice in health care traveled to Washington D.C. to have their voices heard at a stacked Senate hearing on March 5, 2019, regarding “Preventable Disease Outbreaks.” Parents concerned or “hesitant” about vaccines were portrayed as the villains.

Rather than censor and ostracize concerned parents, Congress should be scrutinizing where taxpayer and U.N. dollars are going. Needed scrutiny should begin with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), an organization backed by grants from the William H. Gates Foundation, the World Bank, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Starr Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, USAID, PEPFAR (the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) and UNAIDS. The president of IAVI is the former chief public health and science officer with Merck Vaccines and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

World AIDS Vaccine Day is observed annually on May 18.  It marks the day Bill Clinton gave a speech declaring, “Only a truly effective, preventive HIV vaccine can limit and eventually eliminate the threat of AIDS.” The truth is that most people can avoid HIV/AIDS if they just live a healthy and normal lifestyle. But we may not be able to avoid the AIDS vaccine. The lives of thousands of innocent Americans are far more important than the careers of a few rich talk show hosts on Fox News. Let Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity give these Americans a voice. That would truly drive the liberals and their own Fox News corporate bosses crazy. It would also reaffirm the right of freedom of speech.

Kamala Harris’ Socialist Ties

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times


U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) speaks to reporters after announcing her candidacy for President of the United States, at Howard University, her alma mater, on January 21, 2019 in Washington, DC.

Democratic presidential primary front-runner Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) recently told reporters at a campaign stop in New Hampshire that she is “not a Democratic Socialist.”

The next question should have been obvious: “Well, then, what kind of socialist are you?”

Harris has been surrounded by socialists and communists her entire life—beginning with her staunchly Marxist father. Harris is the older child of two 1960’s Berkeley radicals: Shyamala Gopalan, a cancer researcher from the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India, and Donald J. Harris, an economist from Jamaica.

Gopalan and Donald Harris were very active during the civil rights and anti-Vietnam War protests of the era, often taking baby Kamala to protests in a stroller, according to a recent article in the San Jose daily newspaper The Mercury News on the Harris family.

The couple separated after Donald Harris took a professorship at the University of Madison–Wisconsin. Gopalan filed for divorce in 1971 and won custody of her two daughters in 1973.

Kamala and her younger sister, Maya—now her presidential campaign chair—regularly visited their father during school holidays.

In 1972, Donald Harris left the University of Madison–Wisconsin to begin a visiting professorship of economics at Stanford University.

On Nov. 3, 1976, an article published in the Stanford Daily newspaper claimed that more than 250 students were clamoring for more Marxist perspectives.

Shortly thereafter, a letter was published in the Stanford Daily on Nov. 12, 1976, signed by the Stanford branch of the Union for Radical Political Economics (URPE), with signatures from members Bill Dittenhofer, Ari Cohen, Eric Berg, David O’Connor, Arthur Slepian, Sandy Thompson, and Tracy Mott:

“The program in Marxian economics would be much weaker than it is today if had it not been for massive student efforts in the form of petitions, open meetings …

“[It] was only after a divisive one and a one-half year struggle that the opposing elements in the department gave into student pressure and conceded to ‘the appointment of Prof. Donald Harris. Thus the presence of Marxian economists here simply indicates the success of the student struggle. … The recent addition of course offerings in Marxian economics is again a direct result of student pressure, not departmental benevolence.”

After an 18-month campaign by the union, Harris was offered and accepted a permanent professorship.

The URPE (which last year celebrated its 50th anniversary) began in 1968 as a spinoff of the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). URPE has overlapped considerably with America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), since its founding in 1982. One of professor Donald Harris’ Stanford supporters and URPE letter signatories, Mott, is now a professor at the University of Denver, where he works with local DSA activists.

During the summer and fall of 2006, the DSA’s Political Action Committee helped DSA activists around the country host house parties to raise funds that helped Bernie Sanders become the “sole socialist in the U.S. Senate.”

According to DSA magazine Democratic Left: “Boulder, Colorado, guests braved a downpour to attend the party at the home of Leslie Lomas and hear a talk about giving money by economics professor and socialist Tracy Mott.”

According to The Mercury News: “Several of his former students said it wasn’t accurate to describe him [Donald Harris] as Marxist, although ‘he might have been a lot more sympathetic to Marx than a lot of other economists were at the time,’ said Tracy Mott.”

Mott was being disingenuous. Several Stanford Daily articles at the time described Donald Harris as “Marxist,” and Mott and his friends made it very clear that Harris was hired specifically for his radical ideology.

Donald Harris wrote papers such as: “The Black Ghetto as Colony: A Theoretical Critique” ‎(1972) and “Capitalist Exploitation and Black Labor: Some Conceptual Issues” (1978).

Harris’ Marxism was never questioned or denied at any stage of his career.

URPE also was very close to the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), once the largest and most influential of the far-left think tanks in Washington. Since its founding in 1963, the IPS has consistently followed a pro-Marxist line on foreign policy, defense, and economic issues.

To put its policy recommendations into action, the IPS “built networks of contacts among congressional legislators and their staffs, academics, government officials, and the national media,” according to the book: “The War Called Peace: The Soviet Peace Offensive.”

The IPS was also on very close terms with representatives of communist Cuba and the former Soviet Union.

In 1978, in an article in National Review, Brian Crozier, director of the London-based Institute for the Study of Conflict, described IPS as the “perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB.”

In the 1988 book: “Winning America: Ideas and Leadership for the 1990s,” edited by IPS leaders Marcus Raskin and Chester Hartman, the IPS and DSA affiliate Sean Gervasi recommended a slate of radical colleagues as potential appointees in a hoped-for new Democratic administration after the 1988 election.

Gervasi’s wish list included the following:

• Barry Bluestone—SDS founder, DSA affiliate, URPE member. Served as a member of the senior policy staff of former Rep. Richard Gephardt (D-MO).

• Gar Alperovitz—IPS, DSA, Brookings Institute.

• Robert Browne—SDS, IPS.

• Jeff Faux—DSA affiliate. Faux has worked as an economist with the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity and the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce, and Labor.

• Carol O’Cleireacain—DSA member, Brookings Institute. In 2014, she became Detroit deputy mayor for economic policy, planning, and strategy.

• Howard Wachtel—IPS, URPE member.

• Art MacEwan—URPE member, DSA affiliate.

And, of course, Donald Harris, Marxist professor and Kamala Harris’ father.

Republican George H.W. Bush won the 1988 election, so professor Harris stayed on at Stanford until his retirement.

Ironically, Kamala Harris’ most formidable opponent in the Democratic primary so far is Bernie Sanders, a favorite of professor Harris’ old URPE and DSA colleagues.

When Sanders drops out of a very crowded Democratic primary, will his supporters cross over to support Kamala Harris?

I believe they will. In fact, I believe it has already been decided.

Chinese Cheating For US Student Visas

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Sheesh, more cheating… and just think of the growing number of Democrats calling for the ICE agency to be abolished. Remember too that California had that whole birthing tourism scandal for foreign Chinese illegals.

5 arrested in scheme that hired people to take English proficiency exam on behalf of Chinese nationals seeking student visas

LOS ANGELES – Federal authorities this morning arrested five defendants linked to a scheme that helped Chinese nationals obtain student visas by hiring individuals who used fake Chinese passports to take an English proficiency test for the foreign students.

The arrests were made pursuant to a 26-count indictment returned on Friday by a federal grand jury. The indictment charges the defendants with conspiring to use false passports, using false passports, and aggravated identity theft as part of the scheme to impersonate Chinese nationals who were required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) to obtain a student visa.

This case is being investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service’s Fraud Detection National Security Section. The Educational Testing Service, which administers the TOEFL exam, has provided assistance during the investigation.“On top of allowing students to cheat their way into our top universities, schemes such as this exploit our nation’s legal immigration system and threaten our national security,” said Joseph Macias, Special Agent in Charge for HSI Los Angeles.  “As this case shows, we will move aggressively to identify and prosecute those who engage in fraud and corrupt the immigration process for profit.”

The five defendants were taken into custody this morning without incident. They are:

  • Liu Cai, 23, of Woodland Hills, who allegedly facilitated the scheme, took at least five TOEFL exams himself and is residing in the United States on a student visa;
  • Quang Cao, 24, of San Francisco, who allegedly took at least four TOEFL exams with false identification, and who was arrested today in Stockton, California;
  • Elric Zhang, 24, of Los Angeles, who allegedly took at least five TOEFL exams as part of the scheme;
  • Mohan Zhang, 24, of Cerritos, who allegedly took at least two TOEFL exams under the names of foreign nationals; and
  • Samantha Wang, 24, of Corona, who allegedly took at least two TOEFL exams.

The four Southern California defendants are expected to be arraigned on the indictment this afternoon in U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles. Cao is expected to make an initial appearance this afternoon in the Eastern District of California.

The sixth defendant in the case – Tuan Tran, 33, who allegedly took at least one TOEFL exam with a false identification document – is believed to be currently residing in Taiwan.

The United States requires foreign citizens who wish to enter the United States on a temporary basis to study at a college or university to first obtain an F-1 student visa. To obtain a student visa, foreign citizens must first apply to study at a school that has been authorized by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to enroll foreign students. In the United States, many SEVP-certified schools require foreign citizens whose first language is not English to certify proficiency in English by achieving a particular score on the TOEFL.

When the foreign national goes to a TOEFL testing location, the test taker must present an original, non-expired, government-issued identification document recognized by their home country. According to the indictment, all six defendants used counterfeit People’s Republic of China passports to impersonate 19 different Chinese nationals at various TOEFL testing locations in and around Los Angeles.

The indictment further alleges that Cai paid for and registered 14 Chinese nationals for TOEFL exams over a one-year period in 2015 and 2016. Following the tests, Cai allegedly paid three co-defendants approximately $400 per test from his PayPal and Venmo accounts.

The conspiracy count in the indictment carries a statutory maximum penalty of five years in federal prison. The charge of using a false passport carries a maximum sentence of 10 years. Aggravated identity theft carries a mandatory consecutive two-year sentence.

This matter is being prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Kyle J. Ryan of the General Crimes section.

Nancy Pelosi Strips VP Mike Pence Of Office In The House Of Representatives

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Who the hell made Nancy Pelosi Queen? More like Wicked Witch of the West.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) first tries to position herself above Trump saying he’s not worth bothering to impeach when there’s nothing to impeach him on. Now, she has revoked the honorary office that former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) gave Vice President Mike Pence on the first floor of the Capitol back in 2017.

Pence rarely used the office but the symbolism of Pelosi removing his nameplate from the door and then reassigning the space is brutally clear. However, right now that space is just sitting empty, much like the space between Pelosi’s ears. There seem to be a plethora of Marxists on the HIll these days that are bested in the IQ department by a number of rodents in the same vicinity.

“Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress,” a Pelosi aide told NPR. The aide also said the White House legislative-affairs team “was given new House-side space this year that they did not previously have.”

The vice president, who serves as the president of the U.S. Senate and has an office on that chamber’s side, was given the House office shortly after President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017; it was a sign of goodwill between the House, then led by the GOP, and one of its former members.

This is a definite sign of ill-will by the new Speaker of the House. Frankly, if the Dems want to be petty like this and go to war politically, if I were President Trump, I would oblige them. Aggressively.

If that old moonbat Pelosi wants to dance, block every piece of Democratic legislation that comes down the pike. Veto everything they ask for. Tie the rest up in the courts with executive orders. Two can do a political tango… but that’s just me and why I should never be president.

Pence has an office in the West Wing as well as a set of offices in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Plus, he has space in the Senate. He likely won’t miss his space in the House. In fact, he’ll probably relish not rubbing elbows with evil, Godless leftists who care more about murdering babies, throwing open our borders, doing a two-step on the Constitution and destroying the freest nation on earth than doing what they were elected to do.

Ocasio-Cortez Tries To Nail Wells Fargo CEO… Makes Fool Of Herself – Again

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

I could spend every hour of every day just writing on the idiocy of Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)… more often referred to as ‘Occasional Cortex‘ for good reason. I’m stunned every single time I listen to her blather.

She tried to grill Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Tuesday and made an utter fool of herself… again.

You will be shocked to know the hearing was held by moonbat supreme, Democrat Chairwoman Maxine Waters, and was entitled: “Holding Megabanks Accountable: An Examination of Wells Fargo’s Pattern of Consumer Abuses.” What a farce and an exellent example of abuse of power.

Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t wait to lay into Sloan and thought he would be easy prey for the likes of her political prowess. Not so much. She pushed her political agenda against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and against the fossil fuel industry. It did not end well for the freshman congresswoman.

“Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?” Ocasio-Cortez demanded.

“I don’t know how to answer that question because we weren’t,” Sloan responded.

“Uh, so in finan–, you’ve, you were financing, involved in debt financing in CoreCivic and GEO group, correct?” Ocasio-Cortez sputtered.

“For a period of time, we were involved in financing one of the firms, we are not anymore,” Sloan responded. “I’m not familiar with the specific assertion you are making, we were not involved in that.”

“OK, so these companies run private detention facilities run by ICE, which is involved in caging children, but I’ll move on,” Ocasio-Cortez conceded.

The gist here is that she accused Wells Fargo of being “involved” in family separations at the border because of the bank’s prior financing of groups that run private prisons. Which is just incredibly dumb and not true.

The back and forth got much worse after that for Occasional Cortex.

“Should Wells Fargo be held responsible for the damages incurred by Climate Change due to the financing of fossil fuels and these projects?” Ocasio-Cortez again put forth.

“I don’t know how’d you calculate that congresswoman,” Sloan responded. Neither does anyone else especially Ocasio-Cortez.

“Say from spills, or when we have to reinvest in infrastructure building sea walls from the erosion of, um, from the erosion of infrastructure or cleanups, wildfires, etc…,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“Related to that pipeline?” Sloan replied. “I’m not aware that there’s been any of what you’ve described that’s occurred that’s related to that pipeline.”

Ocasio-Cortez proceeded to talk over Sloan as he finished answering her question: “How about, uh, the cleans up from the leaks of the Dakota Access pipeline?”

“I’m not aware of the leaks associated with the Dakota Access pipeline that you’re describing,” Sloan responded.

“So, hypothetically, if there was a leak from the Dakota Access pipeline, why shouldn’t Wells Fargo pay for the clean up of it since it paid for the construction of the pipeline itself?”

“Because we don’t operate the pipeline, we provide financing to the company that’s operating the pipeline,” Sloan answered. Ouch. I doubt that Ocasio-Cortez can grasp that logical fact much less debate it.

Why does anyone listen to this Marxist miscreant? There are small rodents with higher IQs out there than Ocasio-Cortez. Just sayin’. If you are going to debate a CEO of a major bank, one who has worked his whole life to climb up the corporate food chain, you might want to come prepared and have a clue concerning what you are talking about.

FBI: Operation Varsity Blues, College And Elite Scandal

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

We hate it when people cheat, but when the elite do it including lawyers, it is worse. It must be mentioned, however, that in many cases the children/students did not know what their parents actually did.

Rick Singer, the founder of the consulting company that devised this scheme just pleaded guilty.

At least 50 well-known people have been charged in several states and authorities are dealing with several universities. It is the largest college admissions scam EVER. Celebrities, coaches, lawyers and wealthy power-brokers have been charged with a variety of federal charges including fraud, cheating, and bribery.

This scheme goes back to at least 2011 and the money involved could be higher than $25 million. Operation Varsity Blues began as an FBI investigation in May of 2018 when the FBI stumbled across a lead on a completely unrelated and separate investigation.

The criminal complaint is here.

Toni Preckwinkle: Will Chicago Elect A Socialist Mayor?

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times


Toni Preckwinkle. Charles Edward Miller from Chicago, United States [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)]

On Feb. 26, former federal prosecutor Lori Lightfoot and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle won the top two spots in Chicago’s mayoral primary. After beating 12 other candidates, Lightfoot, who received 97,000 votes (17.5 percent of the total), and Preckwinkle, who received almost 89,000 votes (16 percent), will compete in a runoff election on April 2.

If Preckwinkle wins, Chicago will elect its most left-wing mayor since Harold Washington (1983–1987).

Preckwinkle was part of Washington’s team when he won the office with a coalition led by white socialists and communists, black radicals, and Latino activists. Washington’s coalition was the model for Jesse Jackson’s multi-racial Rainbow Coalition, which earned the Chicagoan 7 million votes and fourth place in the Democratic presidential primary in 1988. It also foreshadowed the left-led multi-racial coalition that elected Barack Obama to the U.S. presidency in 2008 and 2012.

Preckwinkle has long moved in the overlapping circles of the Obama camp and Chicago’s socialist and communist left.

Socialist Connections

In the mid-1990s, Preckwinkle was listed as a member of Friends of Alice Palmer, alongside future Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL), Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, Timuel Black, and Obama. Palmer, then an Illinois state senator, would later lose her seat to her own staff member, Obama—his first elected office. Palmer was active in the Communist Party USA-controlled U.S. Peace Council. She was also a regular visitor to the former Soviet Union and active in two international communist front groups: the World Peace Council and the International Organization of Journalists.

Davis and Garcia both had long histories with the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), and Davis was also a member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in the mid-2000s. Black was a veteran of the Socialist Party, DSA, and the CPUSA spin-off Committees of Correspondence.

Preckwinkle also was close to Progressive Chicago, a radical creation of ACORN, the Service Employees International Union, the DSA, and the Committees of Correspondence. Obama was a leader of this group, as were Ron Sable and Lou Pardo of the DSA and Carl Davidson of the Committees of Correspondence.  

A Chicago seminar, “The Progressive Potential of Chicago City Politics,” was held Dec. 8, 1998, at the University of Chicago. The panelists included Jackie Grimshaw of the DSA-run Alinsky school Midwest Academy, far-left Chicago Alderman Helen Shiller, and Alderman Preckwinkle. The event was sponsored by the University of Chicago DSA Youth Section and the Hispanic Association for Cultural Expression and Recognition.

Preckwinkle has been an Obama loyalist since at least Obama’s successful state Senate campaign in 1996. In 2000, she backed Obama in a disastrous congressional campaign against former Black Panther Bobby Rush. In 2004, Preckwinkle supported Obama during his longshot, but ultimately successful, run for the U.S. Senate.

On Feb. 25, 1996, more than 300 people attended the first of two “Town Meetings on Economic Insecurity” at the University of Chicago. The meeting, titled “Employment and Survival in Urban America,” was sponsored by the University of Chicago DSA Youth Section, Chicago DSA, and UCDems.

The panelists were Preckwinkle, then alderman of Chicago’s 4th Ward; Obama, then-candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District; Professor William Julius Wilson of the Center for the Study of Urban Inequality at the University of Chicago (a DSA member); professor Michael Dawson of the University of Chicago; and professor Joseph Schwartz of Temple University and a member of the DSA’s National Political Committee.

Obama and Preckwinkle met at another socialist setting in March 1998: the memorial service for Chicago DSA stalwart Saul Mendelson at the First Unitarian Church, Chicago.

Preckwinkle and Obama gave eulogies, as did DSA leaders Carl Shier and Deborah Meier, Quinn Brisben (Socialist Party USA presidential candidate 1976, 1992), David McReynolds (Socialist Party USA presidential candidate 1980, 2000), newly elected U.S. Senator Carol Moseley Braun (D-Ill.), and Illinois House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie.

The Chicago DSA formally endorsed Preckwinkle’s successful city council run that same year.

New Support

Move forward 21 years and the socialists still support Preckwinkle. Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky, a one-time DSA member, endorsed Preckwinkle early on, describing her as “the progressive in this race.”

Serving Chicago Alderman and DSA comrade Carlos Ramirez-Rosa also has endorsed Preckwinkle because of her “bold plan to support, integrate, and provide equity to LGBTQ Chicagoans.” 

If Preckwinkle wins in April, she won’t be alone. Besides Ramirez-Rosa, DSA member Daniel La Spata won a council seat outright in the Feb. 26 primary, and three more comrades—Rosanna Rodríguez-Sánchez, Byron Sigcho-Lopez, and Andre Vazquez—will advance to run-offs in April. Already there is talk of forming a DSA caucus on the Chicago City Council.

Chicago DSA co-chair Lucie Macias told the Chicago Sun-Times: For the third biggest city in the country to have a DSA caucus is amazing, and having members around Carlos will only amplify the causes that working-class Chicago—not the rich—wants.”

If Preckwinkle wins the mayoralty and three more DSA comrades win council seats in April, the Windy City better brace itself for a major lurch to the left.

Guest Discussant: Dave Weigel, Washington Post

*** 

Swell huh? 

Let’s go deeper shall we?

Notice the name Alexandra Rojas. She is the Executive Director of Justice Democrats. The team at Justice Democrats includes: Corbin Trent, Zack Exley and Saikat Chakrabarti. Chakrabarti is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff and the brainchild behind the Green New Deal.

There is another fella named Sean McElwee. He is the tech guy behind all the fancy social media and websites. He is also the found of Data for Progressives, the left-wing think tank where at least ‘abolish ICE’ was born. McElwee is also the activist that beats the drum of equal votes and voter suppression. Imagine his email directory and how often he sends out talking points to all the Democrat caucuses in the House and Senate as well as the DNC leadership like Tom Perez.

(notice the t-shirt, it is Subhas Chandra Bose)

So, back to Saikat Chakrabarti and his idol Subhas Chandra Bose. Before and after working on the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign where all these people met and collaborated, Saikat promoted the legacy/manifesto of Subhas Chandra Bose. 

Both being of Indian decent, Bose traveled Europe in the mid 30’s and came to know Benito Mussolini. Ah, but during the early 40’s, Bose fled to Germany after the government of India sought to arrest him for mass disobedience and protests of the British and the government of India. After two years, he left for Japan in a German U-180 submarine. As a side note, the Hitler regime endorsed and promoted the Bose‘Free India Government’, the Bose mission and the propaganda war at the close of WWll. 

So, the plan is to continue to primary Democrats in Congress under the ‘Brand New Congress’. So far, here is a photo of their success, with more to come.

Beyond Data for Progress, the progressives have been using a pollster called YouGov Blue. Elizabeth Warren loves that pollster as does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Media including NBC and CNN taps that source for talking points and headlines.

John Ray is the senior policy analyst at YouGov Blue. He is after Senator Tom Cotton and Cory Gardner but don’t forget Hillary could be a large part of all this due to her former campaign press secretary Brian Fallon. Fallon at one point worked on the Kerry-Edwards presidential campaign, for Chuck Schumer, was the press secretary for Senator Robert Menendez and later moved to the Justice Department, working for Eric Holder. 

Fallon now is the founder and executive director of Demand Justice, a robust operation that was protesting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Oh, by the way, his wife, Katie was the former White House Director of Legislative Affairs in the Obama administration. The swamp is still out there and advising democrat legislators as well and cultivating new candidates.

This is hardly a comprehensive summary, but in hopes the reader has enough information to research deeper and understand the socialist machine and operatives. Tough head-winds ahead, so be armed with the operatives and the mission.

The Roar of the Forgotten Man and Woman: Why Trump Prevailed–and Deserved To

By: Michael Johns

On February 14, 2017, I spoke to the Cornell Political Union at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, on the promise of Donald Trump’s Presidency. My lecture, “Trumpism Can Make America Great Again,” follows:

Last time I was here was over a year ago when my son Michael was looking at Cornell. He loves this school and this organization—and anything he loves, I do too. So thanks to all of you for the work you do, the discussion you facilitate, and the important contribution you make to this great institution. Cornell is one of the world’s premier universities, and your intellectual curiosity and search for answers to our world’s and nation’s problems are a big contribution to that greatness. 

On the drive up here tonight, I happened to see how this university describes itself on its Twitter feed. It’s a great description: “Teaching tomorrow’s thought leaders to think otherwise and create knowledge with a public purpose.” Tonight I’m going to do exactly that: I’m going to try to get you to think a little differently—to see what over 60 million Americans saw when they voted for Trump, and we’ll do all of this with the spirit that we’ll use this knowledge to serve the higher public purpose of enhancing the greatness of our nation, which requires of each subsequent American generation that they defend and continually improve it for all Americans.

——————————————————
We have just undergone the closest thing to a revolution in American politics as one can have in our Constitutional Republic, and tonight I will attempt to explain it objectively. I will speak tonight not to the few of you here who may already support Trump, nor those of you who consider yourselves conservatives or Republicans, but to the vast majority here tonight that I’m sure do not. These are the facts and sentiments that led to an electoral outcome you no doubt did not want and did not predict—but I’m convinced need to understand.

What If Trump Loses in 2020?

By: Lloyd Marcus

Over a year ago, my wife Mary and I moved from Florida to a tiny town in the hills of West Virginia to be closer to our ailing parents; population 500. There are five churches in town. I enjoyed the town’s patriotic July 4th parade and their faith-based Christmas parade.

I walk half a mile daily to the post office. On one occasion, I entered while the postmaster was on the phone talking to a town local. The postmaster told the person every item in their mailbox. Chuckling, I said, “People call to see what mail they’ve received?” The smiling postmaster replied, “She didn’t feel like coming out in the snow. She asked me to tell her everything in her mailbox in case there was something important.” I thought, how small town is that?

Trump signs are still displayed in a few yards. I suspect most residents voted for Trump.

The Marxist Roots of ‘Medicare for All’

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

When Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) announced the launch of H.R.1384, “Medicare for All,” on the Capitol steps on Feb. 27, 2019, it was a major step toward a socialist America.

Jayapal was surrounded by more than 100 supporters, many from groups such as National Nurses United, the Center for Popular Democracy, Our Revolution, Coalition of Labor Union Women, and the Labor Campaign for Single Payer.

Appropriately, all of the organizations represented are controlled, or at least heavily influenced, by America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which can quite rightly claim credit for the socialist single-payer movement euphemistically referred to as “Medicare for All,” now reaching a peak across the United States.

For decades, even most Democratic representatives shied away from any mention of government-run healthcare. But now, more than 100 Democratic congress members have signed on to a bill that would eventually eliminate the private health insurance industry and give the federal government near total control over every American citizen’s healthcare.

What happened to cause such a massive shift?

Quentin Young

All this has been a long time in the making. The roots of H.R.1384 can be traced back to the 1930s in South Side, Chicago when a young Hyde Park High School student named Quentin Young first joined the Young Communist League.

After World War II, Young graduated from Northwestern Medical School and did his residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Young joined the American Medical Association and served as chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine at Cook County, where he helped establish the Department of Occupational Medicine. Later, Young became a clinical professor of Preventive Medicine and Community Health at the University of Illinois Medical Center and senior attending physician at Michael Reese Hospital.

In 1997, he was inducted as a master of the American College of Physicians, and in 1998, he served as president of the American Public Health Association.

Parallel to his stellar medical career, Young was also a prominent hard-left activist. He was close to the Communist Party for decades, and, in 1968, pleaded the Fifth Amendment and refused to testify when the House Un-American Activities Committee accused him of membership in the Bethune Club — a Communist Party group for medical practitioners at Cook County Hospital.

In 1968, while likely still a Communist Party member, Young founded the Medical Committee for Human Rights, one of the first American socialized-medicine advocacy groups in the modern era.

In the late 1970s, Young was affiliated with the New American Movement (NAM), an alliance of former student radicals and ex-communists. In 1982, NAM joined the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee to form the DSA, which would remain Young’s ideological home until his death in March 2016. In 1987, Young co-founded Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), which now has more than 21,000 members and chapters across the United States.

Under Young’s guidance, the DSA became the major driving force behind the campaign for socialized medicine in the United States.

According to PNHP’s website:

“Our members and physician activists work toward a single-payer national health program in their communities. PNHP performs groundbreaking research on the health crisis and the need for fundamental reform, coordinates speakers and forums, participates in town hall meetings and debates, contributes scholarly articles to peer-reviewed medical journals, and appears regularly on national television and news programs advocating for a single-payer system.

“PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program.”

Los Angeles physician Steve Tarzynski, then a member of the DSA National Political Committee and chair of the DSA National Health Care Task Force, wrote in the January/February 1994 edition of the DSA magazine Democratic Left:

“We’ve met some of the modest goals that the national leadership set when DSA decided to make support for a single-payer Canadian-style health care system our major issue.

“DSA members have served on the Clinton Health Care Task Force and in the leadership and rank and file of national and state single-payer coalitions. Perhaps most importantly, in 1991, we organized a 22-city national tour of over forty Canadian health experts (from our sibling party, the New Democrats) that helped to galvanize the single-payer movement into action. No other organization was in a position to carry out such a major tour. We have done a good job as the socialist current within the single-payer movement, but still have significant opportunities to improve DSA locals’ level of activism and our recruitment of activists into DSA through this issue.

“The most delicate aspect of our work is how we balance our efforts in improving the Clinton proposal and pushing for single-payer. This is not a new dilemma for the left. The tension between reform and revolution has existed within every socialist movement in Western industrialized democracies. It will always be with us. The solution lies in putting into practice Michael Harrington’s notion of ‘visionary gradualism.’”

Hillary Clinton’s health reforms eventually failed, but the DSA refused to give up. The comrades pushed more initiatives through allies in Congress, such as Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

According to the summer 2009 edition of Democratic Left:

“DSA reaffirms its support for single-payer health insurance as the most just, cost-effective and rational method for creating a universal health care system in the United States.

“In the House of Representatives, John Conyers has introduced H.R.676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. This bill has 77 co-sponsors. In the Senate, Bernie Sanders has introduced S.703, the American Health Security Act of 2009. His bill has not yet attracted co-sponsors.

“These two pieces of legislation take different approaches to universal health insurance, but both take for-profit insurance companies out of the picture.

“DSA asks our locals to contact their senators and representatives and encourage them to co-sponsor these bills if they have not already done so.”

Meanwhile, Young was using personal relationships to further the cause.

Young was a long-time friend and political mentor to former President Barack Obama, a fact confirmed in a March 2009 interview with Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman:

Amy Goodman: “You’ve been a longtime friend of Barack Obama.”

Quentin Young: “Yeah.”

Ms. Goodman: “How has he changed over the years?”

Mr. Young: “Well, Barack Obama, as we know, was a community organizer, a very lofty calling, in my book, and he made the decision, when the opportunity came, that he could get more done politically, and he accepted the nomination for the seat in the state Senate. It’s not that long ago, really. It’s about six, eight years ago.

“Barack Obama, in those early days—influenced, I hope, by me and others—categorically said single payer was the best way, and he would inaugurate it if he could get the support, meaning majorities in both houses, which he’s got, and the presidency, which he’s got. And he said that on more than one occasion, and it represented the very high-grade intelligence we all know Barack has.”

Obama’s Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was not single-payer. It was an incremental, halfway measure that satisfied few on the left and drove health insurance costs through the roof.

Inevitable Conclusion

Gerald Friedman is a Massachusetts labor economist and DSA member. Writing in Democratic Left in October 2013, Friedman explained that when Obamacare inevitably failed, fully socialized healthcare would be the next option:

“After a century of struggle, the ACA [Affordable Care Act] commits the United States to providing universal access to health care. This is a great achievement, one to be treasured and nurtured.

“Now the real fight begins, to turn this commitment into a reality that the ACA itself cannot produce. Barack Obama was right the first time: only a single-payer program can provide universal coverage, and only a single-payer program can control costs. The ACA may be the last bad idea that Americans try; after it fails, we will finally do the right thing: single-payer health insurance.”

That’s where the United States is now. The DSA and its friends in Congress have so butchered the finest health system in the world, so driven affordable care beyond the reach of millions of Americans, that government-run healthcare now looks like a viable option to many.

If the United States doesn’t change course toward a more humane, affordable, and innovative free-market health system, it may soon be too late.

More than 350 million Americans are on the brink of losing their high-quality healthcare and their liberty to a plan hatched by a handful of Chicago Marxists.

Such a massive fraud against the American people can’t be allowed to succeed.

84 Radical Activists Arrested In Sacramento At Stephon Clark Protest

84 people were arrested in eastern Sacramento last night. They were protesting the shooting of Stephon Clark, 22, last March and the decision by the district attorney to not charge the two officers who shot and killed him.

A little background on the shooting From Blue Lives Matter:

Schubert’s decision not to charge the officers who shot Clark came after an almost year-long investigation by the Sacramento Police Department, an investigation by the California Department of Justice, and an expert consultant.

The district attorney held a press conference on March 2, during which she explained that investigators had learned that Clark was suicidal when he was fatally shot by police officers on March 18, 2018.

She explained that two days prior, Clark had been involved in a domestic violence incident with the mother of his children, and that he was wanted by police for that and a felony probation violation related to it.

Schubert said investigators had discovered a series of text messages on Clark’s phone in which his former girlfriend said he was going to jail for the rest of his life, and said she would testify against him.

Police found numerous internet searches he had made for ways to commit suicide, and Clark sent his former girlfriend a picture of a pile of Xanax pills and threatened to take them just hours before he was shot.

Schubert said Clark had broken out three car windows, and smashed his grandparents’ neighbor’s sliding glass door with a cinderblock prior to encountering the police that night, but stole nothing.

A police helicopter and officers on the ground spotted Clark as he moved along the side of a house, later identified as his grandparents’ home.

The officers ordered Clark to show his hands and stop, but Clark fled from officers into the backyard of the home.

Both officers pursued Clark. The suspect then turned in a shooting stance and advanced towards officers with an object extended towards them.

Schubert said Clark advanced from about 30 feet away to being only 16 feet away from officers before they opened fire.

In the bodycam video, you could hear an officer yell, “Gun, gun, gun” as Clark took the shooting stance.

One of the officers later said that he saw a flash of light which he believed to be muzzle flash from a gun being fired. The other officer said he thought he saw a reflection of light on a metallic object, Schubert said.

The bodycam video captured the flash of light but the source of the light was unclear.

The object in Clark’s hand was later identified as a cell phone.

A forensic examination of the phone later showed that Clark was not recording the officers at the time of the shooting.

The bodycam showed the officers talking immediately after the shooting, discussing if they were hit and how to safely remove what they believed to be a gun.

A toxicology report showed that Clark had alcohol, Xanax, codeine, hydrocodone, marijuana, and cocaine metabolite in his blood.

Andrew Nixon/Capital Public Radio

The mob of protesters started out at Trader Joe’s grocery store. Then they marched through an upscale, white neighborhood before they tried to shut down a bridge over Highway 50.

Of course, Black Lives Matter was in the thick of it. “We’ve had protests in other neighborhoods and this kind of response has not happened,” said Tanya Faison, the founder of the Sacramento Black Lives Matter chapter. “It proves that everything our DA has said, everything our chief has said and everything our mayor has said was all words.”

These thugs weren’t just marching… they were destroying property as they went. They were keying cars. The protesters were ordered by the police ten separate times to disperse after property owners complained. That took place over two hours before they were finally arrested.

Organizers of the protest at that point urged them to disperse but a large group of them did not listen and moved down 51st street to a bridge above Highway 50 instead. As they moved onto the bridge, police blocked them and started making arrests.

78 of the 84 arrested were on the bridge. Three clergy members were arrested and so were three journalists who were later released.

The sidewalk was lined with dozens of people who sat with their hands twist-tied behind their backs, waiting to be loaded into vans. They were transported to an off-site location — later identified as Cal Expo, the site of the California State Fair — and processed. From there, they would be either cited or arrested.

“I was following the marchers as they crossed the freeway overpass on 51st Street,” Sacramento Bee reporter Dale Kalser said. “It became apparent as we got to the other side [of the bridge] that there was nowhere to go and that the police had basically sealed everything off.”

“There were 50, 60, 70 people all just sort of cordoned off into this small area at the south end of the overpass,” Kalser said. “They just came and started detaining everyone, one by one. And I got caught up in that.”

Scott Rodd of the Sacramento Business Journal and William Coburn of the Sacramento State Hornet were also among those arrested and then let go.

Police expected protests after the announcement not to charge the two police officers over the shooting. Those arrested included pastor Les Simmons, a prominent activist for the Clark cause. Other clergy members were also arrested, as were college students who were part of a group that recently held a sit-in protest that shut down the Arden Fair Mall. 

The arrests surprised many of the activists who left after the initial dispersal orders from police. Make no mistake, many of the protesters were communists and militant racists.

“I’m pissed, I’m angry. I’m frustrated,” said Berry Accius, an organizer with Voice of the Youth. “I thought everything was cool, we were about to end the protest … we accomplished what we wanted to accomplish and to get a phone call 30 or 40 minutes later and hearing my comrades, some of my friends, [pastor] Les Simmons, some of my young people that I was with protesting shutting down the mall have been arrested today, and all for what?”

The two officers who shot Clark were accused of racism. One officer is black, the other is white. For all the world, this looks like suicide by cop to me and the police were justified in their response.

But communists and radicals never let an emergency go to waste. And they are using this boy’s death to stir up racial animosity, hatred for police officers, and chaos in the streets. It’s textbook Marxism and vintage California these days.

What About Hoda Muthana, the 3x’s ISIS Bride?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Hoda ‘s father, Ahmed Ali Mutha hired the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America to represent her. Her lawsuit is suing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, AG William Barr, and President Trump.

She left the United States in 2014 and has been married to Islamic State fighters 3 times. She has a son, 18-months-old and the child’s father, a Tunisian militant, was killed in Mosul. When she left Alabama, the place of her birth, she flew to Raqqa and married her first husband, an Australian jihadist named Suhan Rahman. He was killed.

Image result for hoda muthana

We do not know the status of her third husband but Hoda fled to Susa and was captured by Kurdish forces. Presently she is in a refugee camp in northern Syria.

Ahmed Ali Muthana was a Yemeni diplomat to the United Nations and was fired when the country fell into a full civil war. He was told to surrender his diplomatic credentials in June of 1994. It is not clear if and when he did give up his credentials, nor is it clear for how long his diplomatic immunity lasted. It has been inferred, his diplomatic status continued through the end of the year of 1994. At some point, Ali Muthana did provide a letter to the U.S. State Department regarding his status, but those details remain unclear.

It is further noted that Ahmed Ali Muthana attempted to send his daughter money for financial support but the FBI refused to allow the transaction.

The court refused to grant relief to the Plaintiff and includes the fact that Hoda’s father held diplomatic immunity until February of 1995, after her birth. Further, Hoda was advised she was not a U.S. citizen 3 years ago, January of 2016 and she nor her father challenged that determination.

The Judge’s ruling is found here. It is a fascinating read. It also must be noted that diplomatic immunity and status provided for NO prosecution for criminal acts and gives protection for most if not all civil and administrative actions as published by the Vienna Convention.

The United States revoked Hoda’s passport in January of 2015 as it was issued in error due to the very late notification of the United Nations providing notification that the Plaintiff, Ahmen Ali Muthana had been terminated. The father and daughter had the right to request a hearing within 60 days to challenge the revocation and NO challenge was made.

Image result for Ahmed Ali Muthana

As for Hoda being born in Alabama or New Jersey and having a U.S. birthright, the 14th Amendment states citizenship only on persons born or naturalized in the United States ‘subject to the jurisdiction’. That phrase applies to children of ministers, consuls and citizens or subjects of foreign states. Birthright to Hoda in this case given these facts is not conferred.

For further reading and text for context, go to page 15 of the Judge’s ruling.

Hoda’s father is a resident of Alabama, but it is unclear if he himself is a citizen.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) tracked and recorded Ms. Muthana’s Twitter and Instagram war cries over four years. She expressed hatred for the U.S. and the world in general, urged American Muslims to “rent a big truck and drive all over them” at veterans parades and labeled American service members “cowards.”

DEA Raid of Fentanyl, Enough to Kill 2 Million

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: After checking with a few DEA sources, one of those arrested is a U.S. citizen, the other 4 are in the United States on a visa or a resident card. Dominicans from New York City are part of the cartel distribution network in the United States. Inside this home, those arrested were mixing fentanyl with heroine.

Five people were busted during a raid of a fentanyl and heroin factory in Westchester early Friday.

The arrests took place around 10:30 a.m. Friday at a home on Euclid Avenue in Ardsley, said Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Erin Mulvey.

According to Mulvey, the DEA’s Tactical Diversion Squad executed a search warrant at the home where five people were arrested and approximately five kilograms of fentanyl and six kilograms of heroin were seized.

“The fentanyl alone has the potency to kill nearly over two million people kilograms of fentanyl/heroin were seized, said DEA Special Agent in Charge Ray Donovan.

Image result for Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe

Those arrested included:

  • Braulio Mata, 31, of 129 Euclid Ave. Ardsley, charged with conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl
  • Jose Garcia, 44, of 129 Euclid Ave Ardsley, charged with conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl
  • Ramon Aracena Alfe, 47, of 630 East Lincoln St Mt Vernon, charged with possession
  • Dionell Duarte Hernandez, 32, of 562 West 193rd St New York, charged with possession and resisting arrest
  • Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe, 20, of 129 Euclid Ave. Ardsley, charged with conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl

The location was being used as a heroin/fentanyl mill and is actively being dismantled by law enforcement professionals, she added.

The DEA Tactical Diversion Squad and Greenburgh Task Force are currently at the location along with an ambulance for officer safety, the department said.

“Fentanyl is one of the deadliest threats on the streets today,” said Donovan.

Members of the squad include officers and agents from the DEA, Westchester County police, Orangetown police, Rockland County Sheriff’s Office, Yonkers police, and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department.

***

Earlier this week, two California men who operated a similar drug mill out of a Michigan condominium were sentenced to prison. In the summer of 2017, authorities seized 10 kilograms of pure fentanyl and 20 kilograms of heroin-laced fentanyl and more than a half million in cash. The seizure contained enough fentanyl to kill ten million people, federal authorities said. More than 28,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses in 2017, the last year for which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides a report.
