Ballistic Missile Threat False Alarm Terrorizes Hawaiians… Brings Home Threat of North Korea

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

The citizens of Hawaii are having an interesting day today. And not by choice. Across Hawaii, residents got an ominous message on their phones’ Emergency Alert System (EAS) telling them to “seek immediate shelter” from a “ballistic missile threat.” 38 minutes of sheer terror ensued where people dove for cover. The ones that heard about it that is. The EMS system that sends text messages to all cell phones, apparently including those there on vacation, didn’t get the message to everyone. Looks like that system needs a bit more testing. A cynical person might wonder if it was on purpose. I’ve heard them blaming a person pressing the wrong button on this. That’s bull crap and it’s not the way it works. Try again fellas.

Earlier Saturday, Hawaiian citizens reported receiving an emergency alert on their phone that stated: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” House Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, tweeted in regard to the alert: “HAWAII – THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.”

Greg Gutfeld, of Fox News’ “The Five” and “The Greg Gutfeld Show,” tweeted that his wife was at a hotel in Hawaii and called the situation “total hysteria/chaos.” He added that families who were evacuating were told to “seek shelter. crying. panic.” “Today’s alert was a false alarm,” Senator Mazie Hirono wrote. “At a time of heightened tensions, we need to make sure all information released to the community is accurate. We need to get to the bottom of what happened and make sure it never happens again.”

Multiple officials and government agencies quickly confirmed the message was a false alarm and the groveling and apologizing began. Meanwhile, it’s been non-stop on the news for hours. White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters later implied the false warning stemmed from a state, rather than a federal, mishap. “The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii’s emergency management exercise. This was purely a state exercise,” he said in a statement. That, I could believe.

According to the Associated Press (AP), Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Repoza confirmed a false alarm. Boy, I bet this just made the whole North Korea threat very real to the citizens of Hawaii. “Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Repoza said it was a false alarm and the agency is trying to determine what happened,” the AP reports. I think they probably already know what happened. Either it was a mistake or they were hacked. Either way this is FUBAR. When I heard it, I wondered what the fresh hell was going on and who ordered an apocalypse for today.

The message, initially thought authentic, spread quickly on social media, prompting some panic, as Fox News reported Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) estimated over one million Hawaiians received the erroneous alert. The EAS protocol should only be available to government officials. You can bet people were kissing their collective asses goodbye before they found out, oopsie! False alarm! Hawaii is closest to North Korea and the threat of a nuclear tipped ballistic missile hitting them is very real. As I said before, 38 minutes passed before a follow-up EAS message was sent out retracting the warning. Which coincidentally, is the amount of time it would take for a missile to get from North Korea to Hawaii. Fun, huh?

In August, Business Insider quoted David Wright, a physicist with the anti-nuclear weapons group Union of Concerned Scientists, as estimating the total missile flight time at 37 minutes. Some early warning systems can sometimes detect pre-launch conditions, like rising heat at missile silos indicating the missile is being fueled, that can give longer warnings. I find this whole thing suspicious, but make no mistake… the threat of North Korea firing a missile at Hawaii is very real.

In November, the Hawaiian government reactivated cold war era missile warning sirens over concerns about North Korean threats. That move followed months of efforts by Hawaiian officials to develop contingency plans for dealing with a North Korean attack. Some of that planning apparently included “a public information campaign.” There’s no way to know if today’s mishap was part of those preparations. And I wonder whose head is going to roll over this.

UPDATE: A NORAD official is saying that the alerts may have been the result of an attack by hackers.

Respecting the rank without regard for the individual

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

In the movie, No Time For Sergeants, Private Stockdale, played by Andy Griffith, gives every indication he’d fallen off the proverbial turnip truck as a female officer approached. He’d never seen a female officer as his jaw dropped to indicate the stupor of thought.   The lecture by the Captain for not saluting an officer, regardless of gender, is taken to heart as Stockdale gathers himself, still holding the salute long after the Captain has walked off.

A very short while later he’s at the mess hall prior to having an eye exam, part of the processing tests to determine the next level of training and assignment.  When a rather nice looking female Captain walks in, one that has most everyone turning to admire her form, his sergeant asks him if he sees the attractive female Captain.

Squinting his eyes as he studies the situation over, “I don’t see no woman, I only sees a Captain”.  His sergeant rolls his eyes up in his head considering the necessity of having each and every new enlistee being processed out; his own job is threatened.  There’s no way this idiot’s going to pass any eye exam, there’s no way he’s going to process out.

Now apply this comical example of obligatory respect to the office of President of the United States.  At one time we had people who were referred to as the Loyal Opposition, folks who didn’t’ want Donald Trump, folks who thought Hillary Clinton should have won or folks who believe any and all the negative propaganda being shared on public forums or the large news media outlets; apply the same basic obligatory respect, not because you now have to respect Donald Trump; but because he is in fact the President.  It really is that simple.

Repeat in your mind, even if you don’t quite understand the principle just explained, “I don’t see Donald Trump, a man I can’t stand and who has no business being President.  I only see a President.”

Now act in a civil manner and wait for the next election; but stop the never ending whining and belittling of our President.  The rest of the world is watching and this childish behavior is embarrassing.

DSA: ‘Single Payer’ Is All About ‘Rejecting The American Capitalist Way Of Life’ (VIDEO)

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Democratic Socialists of America’s “Healthcare Policy Expert” Timothy Faust

The movement for “single payer” or government run healthcare has nothing to do with your health. It’s all about stealth revolution, socialism and control.

“Medicare for ALL” is a euphemism for “Single Payer.”

Listen to “single payer” campaigner and according to DSA, “healthcare policy expert” Timothy Faust lay it on the line.

Democratic Socialists of America gave you the “Obamacare” disaster and now they’re pushing for complete government control of your healthcare.

PLEASE SEE OUR CATEGORY ON KEYWIKI: DSA-Affiliated Candidates and Elected Officials

Check out this unused clip from my movie The Enemies Within, exposing how DSA Marxists worked with Barack Obama to deliberately screw up America’s healthcare system to the point where “single payer” would become the only option left.

Watch HERE:

Tell DSA how you feel about “creeping socialism.”

Yet another “Twitter verified” Marxist.

The real reason I need to see YOU at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

http://southcarolinateapartycoalition.com/

Recent elections in Virginia and Alabama have proven that the Democrats are energized and are relentlessly mobilizing. They know that flipping 20 seats in the House and only two in the Senate will bring the whole “Trump train” to a grinding screeching halt.

Are you going to let that happen on YOUR watch?

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away from the South Carolina Tea Party Convention – and I sure hope you’ll be there too. I’ve been looking forward to this for months. This event has been a favorite of mine for years. And 2018 promises to be the best one yet.

  • Sat, Jan 20, 2018, 8:00 AM – Mon, Jan 22, 2018, 6:00 PM EST
  • Crown Reef Beach Resort, 2913 South Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

The speakers are great, the venue is beautiful and very affordable.

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.

But those aren’t the most important reasons for coming.

The real reason is this. By a miracle you elected President Trump. He has done many great things, with promises of even better to come.  What’s not to like about tax cuts, standing up for Israel and staring down the tyrants of Iran and North Korea?

But the President’s agenda is in grave danger.

Trevor Loudon speaks at the 2016 South Carolina Tea Party Convention

If we blow 2018, that stalls everything you’ve worked for for years. It sets the stage for  California’s craziest Kamala Harris’ presidential run in 2020, Amnesty and voting rights for 10 to 30 million illegal immigrants who will vote 80% plus Democrat, and the end of America as we know it.

We have to support the President and we have to re-energize our base FAST!!!

The South Carolina Tea Party Convention is designed to do just that. It is the premier grassroots activist networking event of the year. You’ll hear intelligence officers giving you the lowdown on America’s enemies “foreign and domestic.” You’ll hear Trump campaign officers like Corey Lewandowski tell us how we can move the President’s agenda forward.

I’m not telling you to come just to have a good time. You will. I don’t want you there just so we can socialize with the best people in America. We will. I want you there because the situation is urgent and we need to assemble the biggest possible army to fight the looming battles that we can.

President Trump’s victory was a reprieve…a God-given last chance to save this wonderful country. If we take that opportunity, we will set this country up for the greatest prosperity we have ever seen. We will help spark liberty revolutions all over the planet. Would the brave people of Iran be risking their lives for freedom today if Hillary Clinton was POTUS right now?

I want you in Myrtle Beach for the same reason that 10,000 of your revolutionary soldiers gathered in Morristown, New jersey in the winter of 1780. They needed to hang together, in readiness for the decisive battles to come. George Washington did not defeat Great Britain on his own. He needed a committed, organized army behind him. President Trump needs that army today. We need to gather our forces  starting in South Carolina, January 20, 2017.

Can we count on you to be there?

The 2018 South Carolina Tea Party Convention January 20, 2018 at 8:00 AM, Crown Reef Beach Resort – 2913 South Ocean Boulevard

A few of the dozens of distinguished speakers include:

  • Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson – White House military aide, author and popular conservative speaker.
  • Daniel Greenfield – is an author and columnist, Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
  • Corey R. Lewandowski – President and CEO of Lewandowski Strategic Advisors, LLC a government, public affairs and crisis communications consulting company. Former campaign manager of Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign for President of the United States.
  • Donna Fiducia – Former Fox News Channel anchor and live host. Fiducia co-founded WDFP-Restoring America Radio, an Internet based Conservative Talk Radio network.
  • Ann-Marie Murrell – CEO/Editor-in-Chief of PolitiChicks.com, which was nominated “People’s Choice Blogger of the Year” at CPAC 2013.
  • Tom Fitton – President of Judicial Watch, a conservative educational foundation.
  • Admiral Ace Lyons – Former Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations.
  • MG Paul E Vallely (Ret) – Former  US Army Major General and senior military analyst for Fox News.
  • Dr. Peter Pry – Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and Director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, both Congressional Advisory Boards and served on the Congressional EMP Commission, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee and the CIA.
  • Evan Sayet – Comedian and one of the nation’s most highly respected and in-demand conservative political commentators.
  • Gordon G. Chang is the author The Coming Collapse of China and Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On the World, both from Random House.
  • Stephen C. Coughlin, Esq. – Attorney, decorated intelligence officer and noted specialist on Islamic law, ideology and associated issues as they relate to terrorism and subversion.
  • John Guandolo – Former FBI counter-terrorism Special Agent, founder of UnderstandingtheThreat.com, an organization dedicated to providing strategic and operational threat-focused consultation, education and training for federal, state and local leadership and agencies, and designing strategies at all levels of the community in order to defeat the Jihadi threat.
  • Yours truly – A writer, speaker and film maker form Christchurch, New Zealand.

This will be a great and enjoyable event. But most importantly it is a chance for the grass roots to come together to organize our forces for the critical battles of November 2018.

I look forward to seeing you all in Myrtle Beach.

Socialists mobilize for 2018; KeyWiki breaks the 100k file barrier

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Party for Socialism and Liberation, a “revolutionary Marxist organization,” burns President-Elect Trump in effigy on November 9, 2016 outside L.A. City Hall.

Our sister site KeyWiki website has just passed the 100,000 file mark. KeyWiki.org, America’s largest database of communist Congressmen, security risk Senators, subversive organizations and relentless activists is ready to play a big role in 2018, 2020 and beyond. It also is where research is conducted that serves as the basis for Trevor Loudon’s books and documentary films.

Socialists are mobilizing for the 2018 elections. Trevor Loudon and his team at KeyWiki.org have been painstakingly documenting the up-and-coming socialists who are running for all levels of elected office across America. These socialists are mainly running as Democrats, particularly in conservative districts, but make no mistake, they are beholden to the socialists who pushed them into office.

Research takes time and money.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.

In order to beat these socialists-running-as-Democrats, conservatives must be mobilized. Patriotic Americans have rightfully taken a sigh of relief when President Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, but to maintain the momentum:

Winning big the 2018 mid-terms – Senate and House – are vital if the Trump revolution is to continue.

A loss in either House could bring the President’s agenda to a grinding halt. Even worse, it could pave the way for president Kamala Harris in 2020.

Consider some of the categories of radical groups and individuals created at KeyWiki.org:

These highly organized and well-funded groups and activists are relentlessly fighting to fundamentally transform America and to thwart President Trump at every turn. Americans must be aware of this threat.

More than 100 US Congressmen and 20 US Senators are so enmeshed in neo-communist groups, Muslim Brotherhood fronts, or both, they would fail to pass a basic FBI background check. Yet these people serve on the Armed Services Committee, the Homeland Security Committee, even the Intelligence Committees of both Houses – with NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

We will be using our research compiled at KeyWiki to expose many of candidates standing in 2018 – for Congress, the US Senate and for state governorships. We will do this with books, articles and short online mini-documentaries, like those featured here.

We are raising funds now. Mini-documentaries are comparatively cheap and can be very easily circulated in targeted states and Congressional Districts. Please help in any way you can with this vital project.

The more support we get now, the more races we can target, the more covert candidates we can expose.

If you are able to make a one off donation, or pledge a monthly amount you can use PayPal or your credit/debit card to make a one time or monthly gift by clicking here: http://keywiki.org/Donate.

Please chip in to expose those who seek to destroy your Constitution.

Please help us carry on this valuable work.

Weekly Featured Profile – Scott Douglas

KeyWiki.org

Scott Douglas

Scott Douglas is an Alabama activist. He is Executive Director of Greater Birmingham Ministries “a multi-faith, multi-constituency and multi-racial organization that provides emergency services to families in economic crisis while working with congregations and low-income residents to reclaim communities, identify and fill gaps in social service infrastructures and build community confidence in self-governance through inclusive, participatory, transparent and democratically accountable civic and voter engagement.”

It is essentially a left-wing agitation center operating under a religious facade. Working with Isabel Rubio of the National Council of La Raza and Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama, CAIR-Alabama Executive Director Khaula Hadeed, Scott Douglas played a major role in winning the recent Alabama Senate election for Democrat Doug Jones.

“We touched as many people as we could,” said Scott Douglas, speaking on behalf of the Stand As One Coalition.

Scott Douglas is a native of Nashville, Tennessee and attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where he co-founded the University’s Black Student Union in 1967. Residing in Birmingham since 1976, he served under the leadership of Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and Communist Party USA leader Anne Braden as Executive Director of the Southern Organizing Committee for Racial and Economic Justice from 1984-1989. He was Southern Regional Program Officer for the Partnership for Democracy Foundation from 1989-1992. After a stint as the first Environmental Justice Grassroots Organizer for the Sierra Club, Douglas became leader of Greater Birmingham Ministries.

Douglas is a former board member of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and currently serves on the boards of the Progressive Technology Project, the Equal Justice Initiative of Alabama and the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama. He has written articles on social and racial justice for Southern Exposure, Howard Law Journal, the National Newspaper Publishers Association and the New York Times. He has also condemned Alabama’s tough anti-illegal immigration laws on the Colbert Report, where Stephen Colbert described him as a “community organizer who believes anti-immigration is the civil rights issue of our time.”

Douglas is a member of Saint Paul United Methodist Church.

In 1972, Scott Douglas was the Communist Party USA candidate for Congress, 5th C.D. (Nashville), Tennessee.

On November 15-16 1991, 30 dissident members of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA, including Scott Douglas, convened a meeting to “sign a statement of events” – most or all signatories were soon to break with the party and were later to form the Committees of Correspondence.

In 1992, Scott Douglas, president Greater Birmingham New South Coalition, Alabama, endorsed the Committees of Correspondence national conference Conference on Perspectives for Democracy and Socialism in the 90s held at Berkeley, California July 17-19.

In recent years, Douglas has been involved in organizations such as the Pushback Network, Kopkind Colony and Rockwood Leadership Institute, which are associated with the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, which is now the most influential communist group in the US South.

In November 2009, Scott Douglas, 62, executive director of Greater Birmingham Ministries announced his candidacy for mayor of Birmingham.

Douglas ran on a platform of green jobs, green schools, green transportation and green communities.

Douglas lost that race, but he got sweet revenge with Doug Jones.

Come Follow Me

By: T F Stern | Self-Educated American

In the movie, Always, there’s a scene where a mechanic is working on a service vehicle used at a small private air strip.  Somehow while the motor is running it jumps into gear and takes off without a driver.  On the back of the service vehicle is a sign, Follow Me, intended to guide pilots of small aircraft to the proper location.

(Image, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo – Adoration of the Magi – Google Art Project courtesy of Wikipedia)

As often happens in movies intended to entertain, a borderline qualified pilot happens to be landing at this precise moment as he observes and follows the unmanned service vehicle down the taxi way, across a private road, all the while everyone around is yelling for him to stop.  Eventually the truck crashes into a house at the edge of the landing strip.

I suppose it really is important to identify and validate prior to following just anyone, or in this case, anything.

Such was and is the case with the Great War in Heaven.  Satan put forth his plan whereby every soul would be guaranteed to return to Father; but man would not have his Agency, the ability to choose.  That plan was not accepted by Father and a third of the host of Heaven who wanted to follow that plan were cast out with Satan.

In the other plan… the plan we all agreed to follow, mortality would be our proving ground, a probationary period to test our resolve in obeying God’s laws.  Knowing our shortcomings Father would provide a Savior, even His Only Begotten Son.  And so the War in Heaven began…and continues to this very day.

For our safe return to Father we must decide on a daily basis if we really do want to return to Father or is it worth the effort.  Nobody is going to force you back to Heaven; but there are plenty of opportunities to stray from the path.

We’ve been given lots of help; parents who love and guide us, the scriptures and living prophets all with the purpose of showing us the way home to Father.  Still, we must decide.

Being a convert to the Church I missed out on attending Primary in my youth; however, the Lord didn’t want me to miss out entirely so along the way I’ve been privileged to serve as an instructor while getting to learn all about Sharing Time, Children’s Hymns and how to deal with a wide variety of challenges.

I remember being impressed as Sharing Time began with a roomful of high energy children bouncing off the walls.  The Chorister didn’t seem phased at all as she stood in front of them, having nodded at the sister playing the piano; asked if one of the more energetic children would assist in singing, Do As I’m Doing.

Do as I’m doing;

Follow, follow me!

Do as I’m doing;

Follow, follow me!

If I do it high or low,

If I do it fast or slow,

Do as I’m doing;

Follow, follow me!

Do as I’m doing;

Follow, follow me…

Apparently the children love this tune as they also have a chance to get the ‘wiggle worms’ out of their system.  After a couple of imaginative operations are offered, a different child helping to carry out the exercise, the children are asked to fold their arms for an opening prayer and the children have achieved a much more teachable attitude.  Someone from the Primary Presidency would then present the spiritual lesson with far fewer interruptions.

Isn’t it much the same with adults?  Take for instance the setting for the birth of our Savior.  Wise Men followed the star, traveling far until it rested over the stable where He’d been sleeping in a crib of hay.  Shepherds watching their flocks by night were greeted by angels advising them of the fulfillment of ancient scripture.

Each of us is prepared according to the Lord’s time, His knowing when our hearts have been properly prepared to receive the message of the Gospel.  For some they are born into families where the Gospel is already a daily part of their lives.  Others, myself included, wait a little longer as experiences and testing work to soften our hearts and open our minds.

The tune in my head has been bouncing around all week, Do as I’m doing, Follow, Follow Me…Do as I’m doing, Follow, Follow Me.  Funny how things like that work to our advantage if we but listen to the Spirit as it guides us to the path leading to what’s best for us.

Lucy and I had been married about 7 years when we decided it was time to toss our world upside down and have children.  I knew at that moment that I needed to know more about spiritual life, much more than I’d gathered over the years.

I hadn’t been much on attending the Presbyterian church, at least not after I’d asked some important questions to the Youth Minister and was told, “You really don’t need to know that”.   Well, I did need to know which was why I’d asked so I came to the conclusion that the reason my request was turned away was simple…this Youth Minister didn’t know the answers and it was his way of telling me to get lost.

I was about 14 at the time and had no use for formal religion until we decided to start our family.

It was time to read the Bible, only this time with the intent of actually finding out what was in it.  The New Testament was my starting point.  I had a partner who attended the Lutheran Church at the time.  He thought it was great that I’d decided to read the Bible, offering me a copy, can’t remember exactly; but it sure wasn’t the King James Version.

I got to the part where God made a Deal with Abraham…yea, it came off like a popular television show… Monty Hall pointing to Curtain Number 3… “…and for you God has a Brand New Pontiac Grand Prix with Air Conditioning, Electric Windows and Italian Leather Bucket Seats.”

I thanked him for his genuine concern and shelved that version of the Bible in favor of the King James Version.  It took a little more effort to read the archaic use of language; but somehow the intent of those words made it into my soul as I continued searching for the pathway back to our Father in Heaven.

I actually took inventory, so to speak, an inventory of those I worked with on a daily basis.  Who seemed to be happier; not because they had more money or a better car as we all were police officers making about the same pay.  No, what I was looking for I’ve learned to call, Countenance, the subtle glow which presents itself when an individual is living his/her life in accordance with Gospel principles.

It’s as if that person had a sign on them saying, Follow Me, I know the way home.

Interestingly, those individuals I’d identified as ‘persons of interest’, they all happened to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

If I were prone to assigning things as coincidence, random alignment of details to fit a theory then perhaps it wouldn’t have made such an impression on me; but I don’t believe there is such a thing as coincidence…no, everything happens for a reason including the folks we meet in passing.  It’s up to us to take notice and act on what we have been given.

In short, I knew my insurance agent was a member of the Church so I asked him to send ‘those boys on bicycles’ over so they could tell me more.  The rest is history and we joined the Church.

The Lord sent his servants to assist us in finding the path, the Plan of Salvation.  Another Hymn has been rattling around in my thoughts, one you are familiar with, Come Follow Me.

“Come, follow me,” the Savior said.

Then let us in his footsteps tread,

For thus alone can we be one

With God’s own loved, begotten Son…

I’m grateful for the many opportunities the Lord has seen fit to bless me with all these years; an angel for a wife who puts up with my short comings and loves me in spite of them, the Gospel in my life which has permitted me to follow the Iron Rod which leads us back to our Father in Heaven.  The Temple Blessings which provide the necessary ordinances for eternal marriage and families, ordinances which include all those who have gone before us and tie them together with those who have yet to arrive.

Glad I followed the right path, could just have easily tore through that house on the edge of the run way had I not been paying attention.  In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How Muslims and Marxists delivered Alabama for Doug Jones

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Stand As One Coalition

Cross-posted from WND

A coalition of Muslim and Marxist-led groups won the November 12, 2017 Alabama Senate election for Doug Jones.

The activists consisting of Muslims, Hispanics and mainly Black Christians formed a group called the “Stand As One Coalition.” After the election, representatives from the groups bragged in a press conference about making 63,880 robocalls, making 8,776 direct phone calls, knocking on 10,180 doors, delivering 54,600 mailers and engaging in “faith based preaching” to over 7,000 people for candidate Doug Jones.

As observed at AL.com:

“More than 20,000 Muslim voters – about the margin of victory for Jones – turned out and voted almost without exception for Jones, said Khaula Hadeed, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Alabama.

[…]

Hadeed joined other minority leaders at Greater Birmingham Ministries on Thursday December 14, who worked to get out the vote in an election that brought together the most marginalized groups, they said.

“It took a whole group of us working together,” said Isabel Rubio, executive director of the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama.

“We touched as many people as we could,” said Scott Douglas, executive director of Greater Birmingham Ministries, speaking on behalf of the Stand As One Coalition.

Coalition leader Scott Douglas and his Greater Birmingham Ministries have been a major political and religious influence in Alabama’s Black communities for decades.

Not-so-well-known is the fact that from the 1970s until 1991, Scott Douglas was a leading member of the Communist Party USA, even running as a candidate for Congress, 5th Congressional District in Tennessee in 1972. Douglas left the Party when it split in 1991 and for a time was active in the breakaway Marxist group “Committees of Correspondence.”

In recent years, Douglas has been associated with Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) front groups, such as the Rockwood Leadership Institute and the Pushback Network. The FRSO, with their close ally Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), this country’s largest Marxist organization, have been running radicals posing as Democrats all across the South. Some examples of these radicals-posing-as-Democrats include DSA member Lee Carter, who recently won a delegate seat in the Virginia house against a top-ranking Republican incumbent, DSA-backed Randall Woodfin, who recently won the mayoralty of Birmingham, and FRSO-backed candidates, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, who won the mayoralty of Jackson, Mississippi and Andrew Gillum, the current mayor of Tallahassee, who is currently running for Governor of Florida.

Scott Douglas’ old comrade John Zippert also helped win the crucial Alabama “Black Belt” for Doug Jones.

According to CNN:

“At a time when the Democratic Party has drastically scaled back operations nationwide in conservative bastions like Alabama, it fell to civil rights leaders — including activists and ministers, attorneys and businessmen — to organize and energize black voters to vote for Doug Jones…

The numbers show they got the job done well. As the vote totals rolled in, Selma — the site of storied civil rights and county seat — supplied the coup de grace, delivering nearly 75 percent of Dallas County’s votes to Jones.

You could see the movement’s force in Greene County, near the state’s western edge. The area was a hotbed of civil rights activism in the 1960s, when Dr. King and his top lieutenants paid multiple visits.

The torch later passed to local leaders like John Zippert and Carol Zippert, who have spent decades running programs for an organization, the Federation of Southern Cooperatives, that helps black farmers get access to credit and land. The Zipperts also publish a newspaper, the Greene County Democrat, that urged voters to the polls.

The county seat, Eutaw, features a casino, Greenetrack, whose CEO is Luther Winn, a politically active businessman who supports the local NAACP and the National Action Network, the organization run by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Thanks in part to the efforts of Winn, the Zipperts and NAACP activists, Jones carried Greene with an overwhelming 87 percent of the vote, a larger margin than Moore won in any county.

John Zippert, his newspaper and his “Federation of Southern Cooperatives” was a major part of the winning Jones Coalition. Like Scott Douglas, John Zippert also comes out the communist movement.

In the mid-1960s, John Zippert moved South to join the Civil rights movement. He had been student body president at City College of New York and an active member of Students for a Democratic Society and the Communist Party USA youth wing W.E.B. DuBois Clubs. In the 1980s, like many Southern Communist Party supporters, Zippert moved into the Maoist orbit, working closely with the ultra-radical Marxist-Leninist organization “Line of March.”

Speaking of the DSA, it should be noted that CAIR-Alabama also works closely with the Birmingham local (DSA branches are referred to as ‘locals’) of the DSA. On November 5, 2017, newly-signed-up DSA member Linda Sarsour addressed a CAIR-Alabama annual benefit event in Birmingham along with CAIR leader and self-proclaimed HAMAS supporter Nihad Awad. The theme of the event was “In Liberty and Social Justice for all.”

Alabama’s four DSA locals (Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Tuscaloosa) did not openly endorse Doug Jones, but Mobile and Birmingham DSA did congratulate him on his victory, the latter expressing the wish to “work together to improve the lives of all Alabamans.”

If scandal had not dogged Roy Moore’s campaign, Doug Jones would likely have lost the November 12 election by 10 or more points. The left smelled blood in the water, so they threw everything they could at the race. Their efforts paid off.

The takeaway from the 2017 Alabama Senate Race is not poor Republican messaging, or poor vetting. They were important, but they were not the deciding factor.

The real lesson is that the left is pouring big resources into registering hundreds of thousands of Black and Latino voters in Southern states – especially North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Arizona. They have already flipped Colorado and Virginia, if they can push over two or three more Southern dominoes, the Republicans will be in deep trouble.

If Alabama’s Muslim and Marxist communities had not rallied thousands of Black, Latino and Muslim voters behind Doug Jones, President Trump would be sitting on a safer Senate majority today.

Christmas Appeal for KeyWiki from Trevor Loudon

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

May 2018 be the best year America has seen this millennium.

My KeyWiki website, a 95,000 file database of leftists, Antifa, communists, security risk congressmen, Muslim Brotherhood fronters and other covert activists, is more needed now than ever before.

Please help keep KeyWiki expanding into the crucial 2018 election season. The radical left is striking back with victories in Virginia and now Alabama. Please help us gather data on these  activists, so it can be used to roll back their influence over your government.

If you are able to make a one off donation, or pledge a monthly amount you can use PayPal or your credit/debit card to make a one time or monthly gift by clicking here: http://keywiki.org/Donate.

Please chip in to expose those who seek to destroy your Constitution.

KeyWiki is used by journalists, candidates, opposition researchers and concerned citizens to expose the covert side of US politics. Our information has been used in countless books, articles and of course my documentary The Enemies Within.

Please help us carry on this valuable work.
