For all of you out there that wondered what the heck happened to me over the last couple of weeks, I have answers. 😉
On Dec. 5th I went in to have a hysterectomy. It’s a common surgery and all looked well when I went home a day or so later. Unfortunately, I developed a secondary infection that was very serious. They nuked it with very strong antibiotics that in turn hurt my kidneys. I had to wait until that stabilized to go home.
I will be recovering for a few weeks, but I’m back. Thank you all for supporting me and being so kind.
It has been my honor and pleasure to get to know Tabitha Korol. She’s not only a wonderful author and writer but a true patriot and someone who is not afraid to tell it like it is. As America roils with chaos and uncertainty foisted on her from leftists who are intent on removing a duly elected president and forcing the freest nation on earth into bowing before Marxism, Tabitha writes of what we have forgotten. She writes on what happened on 9/11/2001… and on what many of us swore we would never forget.
It has long been my belief that we should have attacked Iran after 9/11 as the major culprit in the attack on our homeland. But in the end, the enemy here is radical Islam and always has been. And the threat has not diminished but grown in the last 17 years. We have let our guard down and we have let the enemy within America. Communists on the left seed our communities with Islamist refugees we know nothing about. It is a recipe for murder, chaos, conquest, and terrorism. Jihadists and their holy war are now here in America and we invited them in even after they slaughtered almost 3,000 Americans on that fateful sunny morning in 2001.
Confronting the Deception by Tabitha Korol, reminds all of us that it wasn’t just Osama bin Laden or al Qaeda that murdered innocent Americans that day. The threat had been growing for decades and Americans were comfy thinking we were immune to it. Not so much. If you read her research, it tells that although Muslims assure us of their peaceful intentions, most of it is Taqiyya (lies) to infidels.
I agree with Tabitha’s conclusion that it is not only a small number of radical Muslims who wish us harm, but it is also the Ummah itself… the Muslim collective. The radical terrorists are just those tasked with the dirty work. Islam believes it should rule the world under shariah law. From the beginning, I have considered it a flawed, fractured religion and not a good one. For that, I have been censored and purged. So has Tabitha. It is an internal and an external threat we dare not ignore but seem bent on doing so. It is an existential threat to Judaeo-Christian civilization.
As Glenn Beck and others have pointed out often, the Caliphate (and there are multiple ones among Muslims) is a danger to all of us. The US stands with Israel because we believe in freedom. Islam does not. It is a theology that thrives on conquest, subjugation, bloodshed, and suppression. Korol’s book points out all of this and more. I believe this is literally a fight to the death for civilizations.
Confronting the Deception puts forth that Islam claims that 9/11 was an act of the Caliphate and “is still being fueled by a Shadow Government.” With CAIR and a ton of organizations now on US soil, that is a foregone conclusion. We have never been given the truth of radical Islam by the media, most of the government and certainly not by the left. In the end, the political theology of Islam in America screams hatred towards infidels and our way of life. “Death to America” is no longer just a saying, but a goal of the Caliphate and we had better come to terms with it before it is too late.
Since 9/11, the United States, Israel, and cultures that still value our freedoms have been fighting a battle of survival on several fronts. The ideology born out of the Islamic attempt to claim Ground Zero as its caliphate is still being fueled by the Shadow Government. The seriously deceptive media hides the truths about Islam’s invasion into other countries and our own, concealing the consequent tectonic changes in the intruded societies, with the result that America’s needs for urgent analysis and discussion are suppressed.
Academia, from kindergarten to university, is disinviting valuable speakers and turning patriots into globalists. Curricula, textbooks, and teaching methods are being changed, inspiration quenched, and competition discouraged by an equalizing grading system, engineering the children’s psyche to produce a compliant, nonproductive generation.
“Confronting the Deception” challenges the insidious propaganda with arguments supported by irrefutable facts. Korol exposes the gravity of the threats we face with copious links to Koranic quotes, historic accounts, and trustworthy documentation not available in any other single source, and reveals the mentality that creates the jihadi terrorist, in order to help the reader to navigate the distortions that are peddled as truths.
Deception is the modus operandi of Islam and the Left. We are being indoctrinated to disrespect and dislike America, to devalue our freedoms, and to cast aside the advancements we’ve made since our founding. The “Eight Years” have brought us an increase in divisiveness, intolerance, street violence, rapes, honor killings, and FGM, combined with a drip-feed of false narratives to direct the thinking of the gullible. This book is an attempt to redress our endangered world by Confronting the Deception.
If you are interested in radical Islam and the threat of terrorism here in America, Confronting the Deception is a must read. I cannot recommend the book highly enough. Tabitha Korol nailed it and she is a tremendous writer and researcher. You can purchase your copy on Amazon.com.
A few days ago, I wrote again on China’s communist social credit system. But we have our own system being utilized here in the United States in the form of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other Internet platforms. I have already been purged from Facebook for my political views. Many other conservatives have as well. Twitter is also cracking down. They just permanently banned conservative writer, radio host, and combat veteran Jesse Kelly. In retaliation for that, Instant Pundit’s Glenn Reynolds quit Twitter yesterday. I can’t say that I blame him for it either.
Glenn had this to say after he deleted his Twitter account:
People seem to want more, and although there’s nothing duller than posting a screed on why you’re quitting a platform, here’s the gist: I’ve never liked Twitter even though I’ve used it. I was a late adopter, and with good reason. It’s the crystal meth of social media — addictive and destructive, yet simultaneously unsatisfying. When I’m off it I’m happier than when I’m on it. That it’s also being run by crappy SJW types who break their promises, to users, shareholders, and the government, of free speech is just the final reason. Why should I provide free content to people I don’t like, who hate me? I’m currently working on a book on social media, and I keep coming back to the point that Twitter is far and away the most socially destructive of the various platforms. So I decided to suspend them, as they are suspending others. At least I’m giving my reasons, which is more than they’ve done usually.
Instant Pundit was one of the first bloggers out there and drives huge amounts of conservative traffic. We call it an ‘Instalanche’ when Glenn puts out a story you have written or are connected to. He’s had it with this censorship and he won’t be the last by any means.
Oleg comes from Russia but he is American through and through. Over the years it has become evident to me that those who have experienced the oppression of true communism are the most adamant defenders of freedom out there. Oleg’s latest book: Hotel USSR: Memoirs of a Soviet ‘non-Artist’ is based on his own life story.
As a child, Oleg was a gifted artist with dreams like the rest of us, but under communism, you are selected for your vocation and if you are not willing to follow the diktats of the leadership you find yourself in very hot water. I found his telling of his childhood journey and what he went through very compelling and amusing.
As a child, he was promised abundance and freedom in a communist paradise. In that bright future, he dreams of being an artist. But as he grows up, he discovers that his dream is based on a fraud and that his country is really a dictatorship governed by bullies, liars, and thieves. He and the girl he loves find themselves trapped in a labyrinth of a dysfunctional utopia they call “Hotel USSR.” Every aspect of their lives is regulated by improbable rules that override human nature. To live their dream, they decide to break the law. This takes him on a series of tragicomical adventures that feel like acts in the theater of the absurd: a worker in Siberian oil fields, an army conscript, an inmate at a forensic psychiatry facility, a visual propaganda artist, a Soviet dissident, and an immigrant to America. And everywhere he goes he draws pictures…
Oleg’s life is one long adventure. He did the artwork for NoisyRoom.net and he has always been kind and generous when I’ve asked something of him. He has drawn the covers of books of some of the very best authors out there: Trevor Loudon, Cliff Kincaid, Paul Kengor, Larry Grathwohl, and others. You can see some of his work here.
Here is what Oleg wrote after he finished his latest work:
I’m happy to report that I’ve just published my second book, Hotel USSR. It’s a story of а young man coming of age in a totalitarian state. He wants to be an artist but he isn’t authorized to buy paints. He wants to see the world but the authorities brand him as politically unreliable. He wants to get married but the system separates him from his bride. He listens to Hotel California and wishes he had their problems: he himself is stuck in a real-life trap that he “can never leave,” and he calls it Hotel USSR. To check out, he must break every rule in the book.
This young man is me and this is my real life story. People have often asked me what growing up in the USSR felt like. This book is my answer. It’s illustrated with my own drawings and paintings, which I did in my twenties before I quit drawing. The reason for quitting is in there as well.
In addition to it being humorous and entertaining, I hope this story can be an eye-opener for younger people who may naively believe in the false promise of socialism. Rather than debating Marxism directly, I demonstrate how it fails in practice and what absurdities ensue when the entire state lives in denial of its failures, forcing people not to trust their own eyes. The book describes socialism as an attempt to regulate human existence in cumbersome ways that defy human nature, leaving no doubt that to build “real socialism that works” is no more possible than to build a house based on an optical illusion.
I highly recommend Hotel USSR: Memoirs of a Soviet ‘non-Artist’. If you want to know what it is like to have to live under communism/socialism, this book is a must-read. It’s also a cautionary tale to young Americans on why they should avoid the evils of Marxism at all costs. Pick up a copy at Amazon – I know you will love it as much as I did.

Most of you know how I feel about Facebook. I felt that way even before I was purged by them and was never given a reason for it. Under antitrust laws, they should be broken up and steps should be taken to ensure social media platforms do not censor free speech. Things are heating up here in the United States concerning Facebook and they may fall quicker than anyone realizes in the end. But for now, the Brits are leading the way.
In a surprise move, parliament has just used its legal powers to seize internal Facebook documents. They include private emails from CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The UK wants to hold Facebook accountable for violating the privacy of individuals. Just as in the US when Zuckerberg refused to answer Senator Ted Cruz, Zuckerberg repeatedly refused to answer questions put to him by parliament.
These documents purportedly contain significant revelations about Facebook decisions on data and privacy controls that led to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. It is also alleged that they include confidential emails between senior executives and correspondence with Zuckerberg. Oh, I hope so. Facebook needs to be exposed for all the dirty, underhanded evil moves they’ve made over the last fourteen years.
Laura Loomer is a blogger/journalist/activist that has long been at the forefront of exposing Islamists who push Shariah law and FGM (female genital mutilation). She did just that with newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and for that, Twitter banned/purged her from their social media platform. Everything that Loomer spoke of was the truth and not hate speech.
Twitter says her tweet violated their “rules against hateful conduct.” It’s the same drivel that Facebook is using to ban conservatives whose political opinions they don’t agree with. Laura Loomer is Jewish and had over 260,000 Twitter followers. For her stance, it took Facebook less than 24 hours to purge her as well, just as many other conservatives have been.
“Isn’t it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate ‘women, LGBTQ, and minorities’ is a picture of Ilhan Omar? Ilhan is pro-Sharia Ilhan is pro-FGM. Under Sharia, homosexuals are oppressed and killed. Women are abused and forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti-Jewish,” tweeted Loomer, 25. Please tell me how any of that is untrue. And while Loomer stated the absolute truth, real hatemongers like Luis Farrakhan and Antifa are still on these social media platforms.
Socialism is all well and good until it makes it impossible to live, work or exist… just take a look at France. This is the second weekend that French protesters are getting frisky in the streets over fuel prices. I am told that it is between $6 and $8 a gallon over there and people are ticked at Macron. Police in Paris are using tear gas and water cannons to disperse protesters.
Angry mobs were trying to break through a security cordon at the Champs-Elysées and violence broke out. Over 5,000 protesters were marching there. At least 13 people were arrested after getting into fights with the police. Organizers of the “yellow jacket” movement billed the latest protests as “act two” in their rolling campaign. They want an end to an increase in fuel duty on diesel. Taxes y’all. Hello California.
Metal barriers were erected to keep the violent hordes away from key buildings such as the prime minister’s official residence. Some of the protesters ripped up paving stones and threw fireworks at the police. They were shouting slogans that call for President Emmanuel Macron to resign. Perhaps Macron might want to rethink his stance on America’s ‘nationalism’.
This is where Maoism and communism lead… the utter subjugation of the masses. Make no mistake, it is what the left envisions for America. If the left regains control of America they will utilize massive intelligence compounds such as the one in Utah, using cameras and databases to track our every move. All of us will be subjected to nationwide surveillance and our families, friends and loved ones will pay the price for it. Hell, if tech giants get their way, they will find a way to inject us with neural web technology that can enslave us. Think I’m paranoid? Ask Elon Musk. It’s called “neural lace” technology. It should terrify all of us. I highly recommend you read Dean Koontz’s hellish vision of this in the Jane Hawk series.
China is at the forefront of controlling their people. By the end of 2020, they will have a system in place that watches every move their 1.3 billion people make and judges them on those moves. They will adopt a lifelong points program by 2021 that assigns personalized ratings for each resident. If they step out of line, their score will reflect it. Mortgages/rent, travel, jobs, loans, food allotment… everything will be based on those scores. Think it can’t happen here? The left is already pushing for it. If you think social media is bad, just wait.
The capital city will pool data from several departments to reward and punish some 22 million citizens based on their actions and reputations by the end of 2020, according to a plan posted on the Beijing municipal government’s website on Monday. Those with better so-called social credit will get “green channel” benefits while those who violate laws will find life more difficult.
The Beijing project will improve blacklist systems so that those deemed untrustworthy will be “unable to move even a single step,” according to the government’s plan. Xinhua reported on the proposal Tuesday, while the report posted on the municipal government’s website is dated July 18.
China has long experimented with systems that grade its citizens, rewarding good behavior with streamlined services while punishing bad actions with restrictions and penalties. Critics say such moves are fraught with risks and could lead to systems that reduce humans to little more than a report card.
Beijing leads a dozen cities in China in these efforts. It takes oppression to its ultimate conclusion. Hangzhou rolled out its personal credit system earlier this year, rewarding “pro-social behaviors” such as volunteer work and blood donations while punishing those who violate traffic laws and charge under-the-table fees. By the end of May, people with bad credit in China were blocked from booking more than 11 million flights and 4 million high-speed train trips.
Massive databases are being used to record and catalog every move by these individuals. Agencies are all interconnected and they are using a version of hive mentality that isn’t just creepy… it’s deadly. Agencies including tourism bodies, business regulators and transit authorities are now all working together.
The tracking of citizens in China has become easier with the use of apps such as Tencent’s WeChat and Ant Financial’s Alipay, which is a central node for making payments, getting loans and organizing transport. Accounts are generally linked to mobile phone numbers, which in turn require government IDs. Papers, please.
The final version of China’s national social credit system will be something this world has never seen before. It will take communism to a whole new level. As rules forcing social networks and Internet providers to remove anonymity get increasingly enforced and facial recognition systems become more popular with policing bodies, authorities are likely to find everyone from Internet dissenters to train-fare skippers easier to catch and punish than ever before. Look no further than New York, where a bill is on the table requiring three years of social media presence to be reported before you can obtain a gun.
And all of this will be in the hands of those who define what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ behavior is. If you have the wrong political opinion, you will be done for in China. Bad habits like smoking or overeating will do you in as well. It’s a progressive’s dream come true. And it’s already being put forth by Democrats in New York.
New York entrepreneur and Democratic 2020 candidate Andrew Yang wants to implement a system in which a government-run mobile app rewards Americans with “digital social credits” (DSCs) for good behavior.
“As individuals rack up DSCs, they would have both a permanent balance they’ve earned over their lifetime and a current balance. They could cash the points in for experiences, purchases with participating vendors, support for causes, and transfer points to others for special occasions,” Yang states on his website. “As their permanent balance gets higher, they might qualify for various perks like throwing a pitch at a local ballgame, an audience with their local Congressperson or meeting their state’s most civic-minded athlete or celebrity.”
“The most socially detached would be the most likely to ignore all of this,” he added. “But many people love rewards and feeling valued.”
Yang’s social credit plan bears some similarities to the social credit system implemented by China’s authoritarian government.
Unlike the Chinese system, Yang’s plan does not include using digital social credit for punitive measures.
Campaign chair Matt Shinners emphasized in an email to The Daily Caller News Foundation that Yang’s system lacks the coercive element featured in China’s social credit system:
My understanding of the Chinese system (which is admittedly limited) is that it’s more of a rating that’s externally imposed based on a number of non-opt-in factors, almost like a credit rating, and collates information captured from public surveillance, economic and social media activity, etc… to create a ‘score’ that would then, possibly, be used to ‘blacklist’ people from certain activities. Under my understanding, the Chinese system is more of a score/rating than a system of credits.
Andrew’s platform calls for a system that’s much more akin to time banking, or to points that people earn on their credit cards. There’s no general monitoring of individual activity, and no scraping of social media sites to see what people are up to. Instead, activities such as volunteering or helping your neighbors would earn you credits that could then be traded with others for receiving similar help. For example, I spend 4 hours/week coaching a hockey team in my community, and I use the credits I earn to have a local electrician (who possibly has a kid on the team) help me install a garage door opener. There would also be backing by the federal government for conversion to currency (that would be taxed), or traded in for “fun” activities (such as getting to attend a bill signing).
Denise Simon points out that this is already being done to Americans through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, PayPal, Google, and others. She’s right and I’m living proof of that after being purged and wiped from Facebook.
