DSA Channels Stalin, Pulls Off Crafty Move With Exclusive Sanders Endorsement

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) pulled off a deft move at its biennial National Convention in Atlanta in early August.

The United States’ largest Marxist organization passed a resolution declaring that it wouldn’t endorse any Democrat except Bernie Sanders in next year’s presidential election.

Many commentators, including some less-sophisticated DSA comrades, saw this as a bad move. One opposing delegate summed up the argument of many when he or she said, “Trump is too dangerous to take cards off the table right now”; that side narrowly lost the resolution battle.

The argument is that the DSA has backed itself into a corner. If Sanders loses, they reason, the DSA will be unable to endorse the winner. That will mean that the DSA will be sidelined, marginalized from the anti-Trump opposition that will coalesce around the Democratic nominee—which this author believes will be Sen. Kamala Harris from California.

Republicans: Stop Pandering to the ‘Diversity’ Fetish — Rediscover Your Principles

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

The Republican Party top brass is all in a dither. The “diversity” of the Republican congressional delegation is shrinking.

The recently announced retirement of Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) will leave only one black Republican in the Senate and zero in the House. The GOP currently has only 13 women serving in the House of Representatives (there are 184 men), and this is sending the Republican hierarchy into panic mode.

If trying to match the Democratic Party in “minority” candidates is a top priority, then the GOP is, as usual, way out of touch with its base.

The base cares about principles, not melanin. They care about the Constitution, not genitalia.

Marxists Work to Reinforce ‘The Squad’ in 2020

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Not content with Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley—the far-left congresswomen collectively known as “The Squad”—the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and allied Marxist groups are targeting multiple congressional seats with far-left candidates in 2020.

No one is safe. The DSA and its pro-China allies, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and Liberation Road (formerly Freedom Road Socialist Organization, or FRSO), are targeting dozens of seats currently held by Republicans, moderate Democrats, and even by insufficiently Marxist members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Most will not make it past the primaries, but some have at least a reasonable chance of being elected.

Here are four serious far-left contenders who could be reinforcing “The Squad” in January 2021.

Cori Bush

Cori Bush is targeting Missouri’s 1st Congressional District, which encompasses St. Louis, Florissant, and Ferguson. Her Democratic primary opponent is William Lacy Clay Jr., a veteran of both the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus, who has represented the district since 2001, succeeding his father William Lacy Clay Sr. In 2018, Bush stood against Clay Jr., losing by about 20 percentage points.

A native of St. Louis, Bush is a registered nurse, an ordained pastor, an activist, and a “community organizer.” She first came to prominence during the Ferguson anti-police protests of 2014, where she played a significant, if largely covert, role.

How We Re-Elect Trump in 2020

By: Lloyd Marcus

Democrats, fake news media, and Hollywood are desperate to block Trump’s reelection in 2020. Their problem is that Trump has been awesome for America. Our economy is booming. Blacks, Latinos, and women are experiencing unprecedented prosperity as Trump continues to restore power back to We the People. Trump’s swiftly growing list of achievements towards making America great again is extraordinary.

Democrats hope to win the presidency with their usual lies, addicting voters to government dependency, and convincing everyone that they are victims. Therefore, the Democrats’ presidential campaign is built upon falsely branding Trump as a racist white supremacist, promising free everything to everyone without anyone having to work, and criminalizing speaking the truth.

Because Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives spoke the truth that our country is being invaded by illegals, progressives absurdly claim that Limbaugh and conservative media are responsible for the El Paso shooting and must be silenced.

The Democrats Celebrate Their Hypocrisy Openly

By: Frank Salvato

The political Left – from AOC to Pelosi, Schumer to Sanders – have for years insisted that the Republicans and Conservatives are bought and paid for by “big money”; by corporations and the mega-rich. They paint a picture of government being bought in smoky backrooms to the highest bidder. But a squabble between the 2020 General Election Democrat candidates is showcasing it is the Democrats who are bought and paid for, not Republicans, in the extreme degree.

2020 Democrat candidate Montana Gov. Steve Bullock is calling the DNC out on the fact they are letting Tom Steyer – a billionaire hedge fund manager – buy his way onto the DNC debate stage. Steyer is a radical activist who has helped fund the Progressives in their quest to push the Democrat Party to the extreme Left.

“The thought that you can spend $10 million to get on a debate stage, I don’t think that that’s really good for democracy,” Bullock said. “It’s disclosed money, but we should be actually talking to voters; not spending money just trying to get individual donors.”

And this point is not only cogent to the entirety of politics in the United States (it has progressed to being exclusively a money game), it proves beyond doubt that if you have a big enough wallet and are willing to kneel at the Leftist altar, Progressives, Progressive-Fascists, and Liberals in the United States will allow you to buy position and influence.

If “every vote” counted to the conglomerate of socialistic ideals that is the Democrat Party – and if they were truly outraged by big money in politics, they would be castigating Steyer’s attempt to buy the nomination. Instead, they trumpet him as an icon in their movement; a movement that means to bring full-blown Socialism into vogue in the United States of America.

Once again, Democrats are guilty of accusing their opposition of doing and being exactly what they do and are.

Libya, Hezbollah Arms Dealer Sentenced Los Angeles

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

“Mr. Ghanem was literally a merchant of death who was ready, willing and able to sell weapons, including surface-to-air missiles, to any paying customer, with zero concern for the death and destruction these weapons might cause,” said U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna, in a news release from the DOJ.

Among Ghanem’s clientele for such missile systems were customers in Libya, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq and leaders of Hezbollah, according to federal authorities.

Evidence presented during his trial showed that he brokered the services of mercenary missile operators to a militant faction in Libya in 2015, conspiring to make use of Russian-made Igla and Strela surface-to-air missile systems, according to the DOJ.

He would negotiate the missile operators’ salaries and terms of service — facilitating their travel to Libya, coordinating their payment and offering them “a $50,000 bonus if they were successful in their mission of shooting down airplanes flown by the internationally recognized government of Libya,” the DOJ states in a news release.

American arms dealer who attempted sale of Russian-made missiles to Libya sentenced to 30 years

US authorities were alerted to Ghanem when he approached an arms dealer in Los Angeles in 2014.

Undercover agents approached him in Athens claiming they wanted to ‘sell’ $200,000 worth of arms. Ghanem claimed to represent Iraq based members of Hizballah [a US-designated terrorist group] and clients in Iran.

He was arrested in Greece in 2015 and was later extradited to the United States.

“War makes me happy,” he was quoted saying to an agent a day before his arrest.

Huge Fentanyl Bust of Retired Deputy and Son

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Just an every day common home, except it wasn’t.

Meet Larry McCallister and his son. Enough fentanyl that if it actually hit the streets, an estimated 750,000 people could have died from an overdose. We, however, do not know the official source that the retired sheriff deputy and his son had to acquire the narcotics. That is a key unanswered question.

  

Retired Cabell County Deputy Sheriff and Son Indicted on Drug and Gun Charges

1.2 Kilos of Fentanyl Seized

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Huntington has returned a six-count superseding indictment charging Steven Dale McCallister, 45, and his father, Larry McCallister, 76, a retired Cabell County Deputy Sheriff, with various drug and gun crimes.  Steven Dale McCallister was arrested on June 12, 2019, at the McCallister home in Barboursville following the execution of a search warrant on the residence.  During the search, law enforcement officers seized approximately 1.2 kilograms of fentanyl, 300 grams of methamphetamine, over $8,000 in cash, $4,000 of which was from an earlier undercover purchase of fentanyl.  A Smith and Wesson, Model 686, .357 revolver was also seized.  Larry McCallister was at home and present during the search.

Siege at Ruby Ridge: The Forgotten History of the ATF Shootout That Started a Militia Movement

Ammo.com

Siege at Ruby Ridge: The Forgotten History of the ATF Shootout That Started a Militia MovementThe Siege at Ruby Ridge is often considered a pivotal date in American history. The shootout between Randy Weaver and his family and federal agents on August 21, 1992, is one that kicked off the Constitutional Militia Movement and left America with a deep distrust of its leadership – in particular, then-President George H.W. Bush and eventual President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno.

The short version is this: Randy Weaver and his wife Vicki moved with their four kids to the Idaho Panhandle, near the Canadian border, to escape what they thought was an increasingly corrupt world. The Weavers held racial separatist beliefs but were not involved in any violent activity or rhetoric. They were peaceful Christians who simply wanted to be left alone.

Specifically for his beliefs, Randy Weaver was targeted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) in an entrapping “sting” operation designed to gain his cooperation as a snitch. When he refused to become a federal informant, he was charged with illegally selling firearms. Due to a miscommunication about his court date, the Marshal Service was brought in, who laid siege to his house and shot and killed his wife and 14-year-old son.
