The Organizers Behind The Youth Anti-Gun Protests

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

In the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last week that claimed the lives of 17 and wounded 15 more, several movements are springing up. All of them have teenagers as the leaders of the groups. But those aren’t the true instigators… the organizers. The same radicals behind the Women’s Marches are behind these groups and they are rabidly anti-gun, anti-NRA and anti-President Trump.

The biggest of these groups is the #Enough National School Walkout scheduled for March 14th, 2018. It’s scheduled to begin at 10 am in every time zone and last for 17 minutes — one for each victim who lost their life in the massacre. The radical Women’s March Youth Empower group are the organizers behind much of this. They are sponsored by groups such as: Rock The Vote, Teen Vogue, Peace First, Rise To Run, The Gathering For Justice and Justice League NYC.

The leaders behind the Women’s March Youth Empower group include:

  • Ziad Ahmed – Youth Advisor
  • Hannah Rosenzweig – Strategic Advisor
  • Adam Jacobs – Curriculum Advisor
  • Jackson Hyland Lipski – Graphic Designer

From their website:

Women’s March Youth EMPOWER is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship.

Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school.

Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day.

We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns. Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020.

Join us in saying #ENOUGH!

They are sponsored by the Women’s March Network. Women’s March EMPOWER is also supported by Emerge America and Women’s Media Center.

The next group is March for Our Lives. The student leaders of this movement are Marjory Stoneman Douglas students David Hogg, Alex Wind, Emma Gonzalez and Cameron Kasky. All are following scripts prepared by radical leftists who wait for just this kind of event to take place. This demonstration will take place on March 24th, 2018, in Washington, DC and throughout the United States. They are working in collaboration with the nonprofit organization Everytown for Gun Safety. The same organizers behind the Women’s March are behind this group as well. These same kids created the “Never Again” campaign.

The march has the support of Justin Bieber, who has already reached out to the campaign. Other people and organizations offering support have included Gabby Giffords, Lauren Jauregui, Alyssa Milano, Moms Demand Action, Amy Schumer, St. Vincent and Hayley Williams.

Mission Statement:

Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now.

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.

School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.

Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard.

Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death.

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!

Statement to CNN: “My message for the people in office is this: You’re either with us or against us,” Cameron Kasky, a junior at the high school and organizer, told CNN on Sunday morning. “We are losing our lives while the adults are playing around.” The leftist media had all these kids on the morning talk shows yesterday and are promoting them for all they are worth.

At a rally, a crowd of students chanted: “Vote them out!” referring to lawmakers who accept money from the NRA. Others held signs calling for action. Some read: “#Never Again,” ”#Do something now” and “Don’t Let My Friends Die.”

Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” student Cameron Kasky was adamant: “The adult politicians have been playing around while my generation has been losing our lives …We are begging for our lives, but we need to make real change here.” Emma Gonzalez went on to talk about a march students nationwide plan to take part in to bring attention to gun violence. “At this point, I don’t even know if the adults in power who are funded by the NRA, I don’t think we need them anymore,” she said. “If they don’t turn around right now and state their open support for this movement, they’re going to be left behind because you are either with us or against us.”

David Hogg, who said the day after the shooting that more children will die if action isn’t taken to rectify the problem right now, looked straight into the camera and delivered a message to the President. He said: “President Trump, you control the House of Representatives, you control the Senate, and you control the executive. You haven’t taken a single bill for mental health care or gun control and passed it. And that’s pathetic. We’ve seen a government shutdown, we’ve seen tax reform, but nothing to save our children’s lives. Are you kidding me? You think now is the time to focus on the past and not the future to prevent the death of thousands of other children? You sicken me.”

And a conversation on CNN was very telling:

“So what do you say to the NRA?” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked student activists Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg on Monday morning.

“Um, disband. Dismantle,” Gonzalez replied.

“And don’t make another organization under a different name,” David Hogg said.

“Yeah, don’t make another organization under a different name,” Gonzalez agreed. “Don’t you dare come back here. The fact that you were in power for so long and that you had so much influence for so long in America just goes to show how much time and effort we have to spend on fixing our country. And gun control is just the first thing right now, the first thing that we are mainly focusing on.”

Alisyn Camerota urged the students on: “Look, I don’t have to tell you guys, they give millions of dollars to politicians. They have a very powerful tool, so I mean, how do you expect politicians who need money to keep running for office to say no to the NRA?”

“Because we keep telling them, that if they accept this blood money, they are against the children,” Gonzalez replied. “They are against the people who are dying. And there’s no other way to put it at this point. You are either funding the killers or you are standing with the children. The children who have no money. We don’t have jobs. So we can’t pay for your campaign. We would hope that you have the decent morality to support us at this point.”

“And not take money from people that want to keep lessening gun legislation and making it even easier for these horrifying people to get guns,” Hogg interjected. “Because if you can’t get elected without taking money from child murderers, why are you running?”

These children are being weaponized by communists, leftists and radicals. Their movements are being fueled by grief and they are being given someone to blame: the NRA, President Trump and conservatives. A new revolutionary movement is being born with young people at its center and it is a communist radicalized one.

Russia, China and Iran In Venezuela

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Last week, I tripped across a very interesting article from the Middle East Forum. It’s written by Joseph M. Humire of the Gatestone Institute, where I also saw it. It’s very well written and I recommend both sites. It caught my eye because it covers a topic that has bothered me for a long time militarily… Venezuela.

At issue here is the fact that Iran, Russia and China have moved into Venezuela and are looking to use it as a military vantage point. They also want the oil there. Caught in the middle are the starving people of a once prosperous nation. They are pawns in a geopolitical chess match. Rex Tillerson just finished a tour of Latin America where he invoked the Monroe Doctrine, which Obama tried to kill off. He suggested the Venezuelan military could manage a “peaceful transition” from the authoritarian leader Nicolás Maduro. Once again, this raised the specter of the US using a “military option” for Venezuela, where we would step in to stop the country from collapsing. Iran, China and Russia are sure to take a dim view of any move by the US and we should be aware they are there. Tillerson mentioned both Russia and China, but failed to mention Iran.

It is widely held that Venezuela has now become a Cuban-occupied country. More than 30,000 Cubans are now embedded in Venezuela. Many of them are part of the intelligence and security apparatus there. The Castro brothers surely played a heavy role in collapsing Venezuela. It was planned. But why? In a word, control. Russia is the primary supplier of military aid and technical support to the Venezuelan armed forces. 75% of Russian military sales in the area are to Venezuela, who Russia is loaning money and aid to. When Venezuela defaults, you can bet that the Russkies will be there to take their cut. We are talking $11 billion in arms sales. The Russian state-owned energy firm, Rosneft, has provided Venezuela with an estimated $17 billion in financing since 2006. It is pretty clear at this point that Russia owns most of Venezuela’s oil fields at this point.

Pictured: Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro visits Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in Iran on October 22, 2016.

According to the International Institute of Finance, China also holds more than $23 billion in Venezuela’s foreign debt. They are Venezuela’s largest creditor. Sound familiar? Beijing is now Venezuela’s biggest banker and they will come to collect their debt before long. The communists have been very busy in Venezuela it would seem, while the US has done virtually nothing. The Chinese are also vying for the same oil fields Russia has their paws on. China has also financed many of the nation’s social programs, such as subsidized housing and free medical clinics.

Cuba, China and Russia have kept Venezuela alive over the last ten years, but that won’t last much longer. The place is lousy with Cuban, Chinese and Russian spies. And it’s basically on our back doorstep. The communists have intelligence networks down to a fine art. Iran on the other hand is operating independently in Venezuela. They have been developing their own robust clandestine network in Latin America for more than half a century. That’s right folks… for more than 50 years.

Per the Gatestone Institute, approximately 60% of the population of the city of As-Suwayda in southwestern Syria (pop. 139,000, according to the 2004 census) are Venezuelan-born dual citizens. Many more have arrived since 2009. The district of As-Suwayda (same name as the city) has been dubbed “Little Venezuela.” Estimates indicate that upwards of 300,000 Syrians from the As-Suwayda Governorate currently live halfway around the world in Venezuela. According to the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, more than a million Syrians reside there. This Syria-Venezuela connection could represent a clandestine network managed by Iran and critical to the advancement of Chavez’s “Bolivarian revolution.”

The Iranians practice irregular warfare using non-state actors and surrogates to gain influence over the population. However, you might not see their influence on the ground there. Rather you would see it in instances such as when Iranian-trained forces helped repress anti-regime protestors in 2017. During anti-Maduro demonstrations, the motorcycle-riding members of the Venezuelan civilian militias known as Collectivos were clearly modeled on and trained by Iran’s paramilitary Basij militia. The Basij crushed Iran’s Green Revolution in 2009 and now the same tactics are being used in Venezuela.

You don’t hear much about Iran’s influence in Venezuela here in the US. You mostly see starving Venezuelans who are suffering through a Mad Max dystopian reality and who are oppressed by Maduro. That’s because the news is sanitized these days and manipulated. However, intelligence and security analysts, as well as military strategists are well aware of the game on the ground in Venezuela. Iran has positioned itself on the geopolitical chessboard in Venezuela to capitalize on China’s economic clout and Russia’s military footprint. For instance, Iran’s Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL) used a variety of joint projects with Venezuela’s military industry (CAVIM), as well as Russian and Chinese oil contracts with PDVSA, to shield it from international sanctions. Not only are the Chinese and the Russkies clever, the Iranians are as well. They should not be underestimated. Hezbollah is active in Venezuela.

If you look at Venezuela’s government, you will see that there is a prominence of Arabs there thanks to Iran. Maduro has learned from Iran how to control the population and propagate their narrative. The country is experiencing a severe shortage of food and medicine. It caused an uprising last year that was brutally put down. The United States faces a massive humanitarian crisis as well as a dangerous terrorism threat right in our backyard with Venezuela. It’s a ticking time bomb.

There is a ton of evidence that Venezuela is providing identities and documents to thousands of Middle Easterners. Unless our regional allies have proper vetting and verification measures in place, as well as a high degree of counterintelligence support, they will not know if the Venezuelan refugees spilling across their borders are legitimate refugees or members of a transregional clandestine network between Latin America and the Middle East. Neither will we at this fateful point.

The US should be flooding the area and our regional allies with our counterintelligence and counterterrorism capabilities against Iran and Hezbollah in the Western Hemisphere. Some of that has already started, but it is woefully inadequate to the threat we are facing. If we are to militarily interfere in Venezuela, we will first need to address external operators… Iran, Russia and China, who have for all intents and purposes turned Venezuela into another Syria. And it’s just as deadly a threat, only it’s right next door this time.

13 Russian Nationals Indicted By Mueller For Interfering In US Elections

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia on Friday indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities accused of interfering in US elections. The Russians probably aren’t here in the US, so this is mostly symbolic, but Mueller and others know it is a certainty that the Russians will meddle in the upcoming elections. I’m heartened that someone is at least taking the threat from Russia seriously. I think this also goes a long way to dispelling the Trump collusion nonsense. Although, Trump is by no means out of the woods just yet concerning Mueller. Evidently, the Russians were trying to cause massive chaos as I’ve said before and were even supporting Bernie Sanders, which actually makes sense.

The Russians are accused of having a “strategic goal to sow discord in the US political system, including the 2016 presidential election.” It’s a pity they don’t state that the Russians have been doing this for decades, it was just politically expedient to finally acknowledge it. No Americans were swept up in these indictments which is good news as well. You can read the indictment here.

The Department of Justice has issued charges against 13 Russian nationals involved with the Internet Research Agency, an organization at the center of fake news and trolling during the 2016 presidential election. The Russians stand accused of spreading derogatory information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, denigrating Republican candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and supporting Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders and then-Republican candidate Donald Trump. None of these candidates however colluded with the Russians. It was Russia doing what Russia does… creating havoc to mess with the United States. It’s soft warfare.

The indictment states that the defendants spread derogatory information about various candidates throughout the 2016 campaign and by “early to mid-2016” were supporting Trump’s presidential campaign. And I contend that was only to cause massive conflict. They didn’t really care who got in, the Russians were building files on all the candidates. The Russians did purchase political ads on social media as bots and trolls. They also staged political rallies inside the US while pretending to be grassroots groups. It’s classic subversion and Russian Spycraft 101. The indictment charges, for instance, that Russians paid an American woman in Florida to dress up as Hillary Clinton in a prison uniform and paid another American to build a cage large enough to hold her.

“Some defendants, posing as US persons and without revealing their Russian association, communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities,” the indictment said. The 37-page charging document also contains allegations that two of the indicted Russians traveled to the US in 2014, visiting Nevada, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Louisiana, Texas and New York “to gather intelligence” and that the duo had discussed “evacuation scenarios.” These are spies and we should have intel units dealing with threats like this from both Russia and China.

Per Politico, the defendants also allegedly posed as Americans in online interactions with political and social activists, including one instance outlined by Mueller’s team in which they communicated with a “Texas-based grassroots organization” that advised the Russian nationals to direct their efforts toward “purple states like Colorado, Virginia and Florida.” The indictment alleges that the Russian nationals regularly began using the term “purple states” in subsequent planning.

Mueller put in his indictment that the defendants conspired to defraud the US. Three of them conspired to commit wire and bank fraud. Five of the defendants were charged with aggravated identity theft. The three entities charged are Internet Research Agency LLC, Concord Management and Consulting LLC and Concord Catering. The 13 Russians charged are: Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin; Mikhail Ivanovich Bystrov; Mikhail Leonidovich Burchik; Aleksandra Yuryevna Krylova; Anna Vladislavovna Bogacheva; Sergey Pavlovich Polozov; Maria Anatolyrvna Bovda; Robert Sergetevich Bovda; Dzheykhun Nasimi Ogly; Vadim Vladimirovich Podkopaev; Gleb Igorevich Vasilchenko; Irina Viktorovna Kaverzina and Vladimir Venkov.

I would hope those on the right that had a lovefest going with the Russians will come to their senses after this. They are not our allies and they are not our friends. They are a threat to our nation and our freedoms. They were trying to sow the seeds of discord to help destroy our government and have us at each other’s throats and to a certain extent, they succeeded. We don’t need more useful idiots for communists and we don’t need Alexander Dugin and Vladimir Putin trying to manipulate our country. Vigilance is survival when it comes to communists.

Cher-Backed Idaho Berniecrat Aims At Becoming Nation’s First Native American Governor

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Well, isn’t that just peachy. Idaho is having a female Native American Democrat run for the governor’s office. Democrats in the state haven’t had one of their own in that office since 1990. The reason she is running now is that Gov. Butch Otter (R) has decided not to run for re-election. That’s bad news for Idaho. It gives progressive socialist Democrats in the state a fighting chance at the governorship. I certainly didn’t always agree with Otter, but he was far preferable to this option. Meet progressive Democrat Paulette Jordan. She’s actually more of a Berniecrat and is a crypto-communist. This woman is dangerous.

Cher endorses Jordan… that pretty much tells you all you need to know right there. She’s also endorsed and backed by People for Bernie. She is 37 years-old and a state representative. She is the only Democrat from Northern Idaho and she has her sights set on becoming the nation’s first Native American governor. Jordan was born and raised in Northern Idaho and owns timberland and farmland there. Her ancestors come from several local tribes and also a line of tribal chiefs going back to her great-grandfather. She is an enrolled citizen of the federally recognized Coeur d’Alene tribe, which is based on the reservation of the same name. She also has Sinkiuse (known as the Moses–Columbia Band of the Colville Confederacy), Nez Perce and Yakama–Palus ancestry. If you didn’t look at what she really stands for — unfettered socialism — you might be tempted to vote for her. Don’t do it.

37-year-old Paulette Jordan, who is currently an Idaho state representative and member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, is reportedly running for governor as a progressive Democrat.

Posted by U.S. Democratic Socialists on Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Jordan was also the youngest member of the Couer d’Alene tribal council. There are evidently more socialists in Idaho than I ever knew. They are lining up and fawning over this young Democrat. She describes herself as VERY progressive. Jordan announced her campaign back on Dec. 7th and spoke of “service” to the state of Idaho. Her campaign website lists a livable wage, education, affordable healthcare and Medicaid expansion as her top priorities. She’s also for raising taxes. It’s the typical progressive laundry list and it’s honeyed political death for Idaho.

Jordan also describes herself as the anti-Trump candidate in the race. Idaho went for Trump, I think she’s going to have an issue there. “The truth is, in fact, that we’ve created hundreds of thousands more jobs through clean energy developments than we have through fossil fuel developments,” Jordan said. “The President is choosing to lie to the general public for these reasons, for his own sake to take from the public. Take from the people. And that is wrong.” Spoken like a true socialist and she’s lying through her teeth. That just isn’t true.

She also went off on the fact that Trump decided to reduce the size of two of Idaho’s federally protected national monuments, which by the way, was the right thing to do. “We have this President who decides to open up [monument sites] for oil and gas extractions to basically to ravage the land in every way possible for the benefit of the corporations,” she said. “Now that, to me, is not only unlawful but goes back to being a detriment to the people.” Wow, she’s really a Marxist moonbat. She wants to keep Idaho’s land under federal control.

According to Vice, Jordan says that it is essential to have a Native American in the Idaho governor’s office. “I see myself helping to contribute to the balance of representation and to ultimately inspire others who may not think this position is attainable,” said Jordan. “There are people who think entering office is only for older, white, wealthy men. We’re now here to break boundaries and people’s perception.” So, she’s also the anti-white man candidate. Good to know. And of course, she’s into wealth redistribution. Doing communists proud.

Jordan will be battling against moderate Democrat A.J. Balukoff, a Boise businessman, in the Idaho Democratic Party’s gubernatorial primary. He’s 71, but he has a lot of funding. Idaho Ed News reported Balukoff raised $181,271 and spent $143,699 in the last half of 2017 — $175,000 coming out of his own bank account. He’s never been shy about self-funding. Balukoff spent nearly $3.6 million of his own cash the last time he ran for governor in 2014. One can only hope he prevails and that a really good Republican runs in Idaho this time around.

Jordan participated in both Women’s Marches, replete with her pink p*ssy hat. Make no mistake, this woman is one of the rising stars of the new leftist Democratic Party. Idaho is only one of her stops on the way up. Idahoans need to vet their candidates carefully and not elect a crypto-communist like Jordan.

At Least 17 Democratic Socialists Of America Are Running For Office In Texas In 2018

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Texas is in real trouble politically. The giant red state has been targeted by the left and they are dumping millions into the state to turn it blue forever. There are at least 17 Democratic Socialists of America candidates running for office in the state now. They look like just ordinary people… but these are socialists. They are communist-lite. They are Marxists and they are a stone cold threat to our way of life and our freedoms in this nation.

As the Texas Observer put it, the revolution will be down-ballot. First up is Franklin Bynum’s campaign for Harris County misdemeanor court judge. He’s a 35 year-old former public defender and says he’s seen Houston’s criminal courts routinely railroad the poor into convictions that drive them further into poverty. Now, after nearly 10 years subject to the whims of conservative judges, he’s aiming to take the gavel for himself. I guarantee you that he will do what all liberal activist judges do… he’ll set criminals free to go back to what they were doing before. This has nothing to do with the poor. One of the primary goals of communists such as Van Jones is to empty our prisons regardless of the consequences.

“Who are these courts being operated for? Right now, it’s the police, the bondsmen and the prosecutors, and people are just the raw material to be chewed up,” said Bynum, who’s running as a Democrat for Harris County Criminal Court. Bynum’s platform includes expanding the use of personal recognizance bonds, waiving certain fees for the poor and reducing mandatory appearances, which he said are used only to “coerce” guilty pleas from defendants out on bail. “A democratic socialist judge would make the courts work for the people,” he said. No, what it would do is obstruct the police from doing their jobs and let criminals walk free.

Bynum is just one of the 17 DSA members mentioned previously. These candidates include U.S. House and offices ranging from governor to county treasurer. Democratic Socialists of America now claims to have more than 30,000 members nationwide, but personally, I believe it is a lot more than that. Their recruitment has exploded since President Trump took office. The DSA is on a mission to turn America into a Marxist conclave once and for all. They have over ten active chapters in Texas now and that ought to scare the living daylights out of Texans. They are funded by leftists such as George Soros and they are organized. These candidates are to the left of the Democratic Party and are going after issues such as single-payer healthcare and a $15 minimum wage.

Some of the candidates are laughable, such as the gubernatorial hopeful Tom Wakely. He calls himself the “Berniecrat with a Panama hat.” He previously lost a 2014 congressional bid by 20 points. Others are definitely more of a threat such as congressional hopefuls Derrick Crowe, in District 21, and Rick Treviño, in the always-competitive District 23. Trevor Loudon just wrote a great and really solid piece on Trevino. These two are definitely viable primary challengers and Texans need to ensure they are not elected. “With Treviño and Crowe, it’s sort of the mirror image of what we saw with the Tea Party,” Rice University political scientist Mark Jones said. “The advantage the establishment candidates have is money, but the Tea Party’s shown us that sometimes money can lose to these grassroots activist campaigns.”

Trevino is a U.S. history and geography teacher at Sam Houston High School. District 23 is currently represented by moderate Republican Will Hurd. This is a district that has gone with Hillary Clinton before in 2016, so it is by no means solidly conservative. “[District] 23 is always described as a conservative district where ideas like Medicare for All or a living wage will turn off voters; that is absolutely false,” Trevino wrote in a Facebook message to the Observer. “Across the district, these ideas are resonating, especially Medicare for All.” Hear that? He says socialism is resonating with Texans. God, I hope not for all our sakes. As goes Texas, so goes the nation and Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA both know it. As Trevor put it, “Rick Trevino is a crypto-communist running as a Democrat. His campaign is deceptive in nature and needs to be exposed. Please help spread this information throughout Texas District 23 and beyond.”

Bynum and other candidates on the DSA list have no primary challenger or are guaranteed a shot come November. What that means is that if the prophesied “blue wave” ever materializes, it could carry them to victory along with mainstream Democrats. If I were in Texas, I’d be working very hard to make sure that wave falls flat. Bynum has worked in the trenches as a criminal defense attorney for the last ten years or so. That included a stint with the Harris County Public Defender’s Office, but in most midterms he’d be a long shot. Unfortunately, 2016 was a really good year for Harris County Dems. They think an anti-Trump wave could sweep the elections this year. I doubt it, but I wouldn’t chance it. DSA members have been winning seats across the country and Texas can’t afford to have socialists elected there.

Bynum says he isn’t depending solely on anti-Trump sentiment to drive turnout. He’s running a campaign that he calls more active and issues-based than those of his Democratic peers. He criticizes Harris County misdemeanor court judges for resisting a federal order to stop incarcerating those too poor to make bail; he’s campaigned outside the county jail with voter registration forms; he plans to hold clinics to help people with expired or suspended driver’s licenses; and he uses members of the Houston DSA chapter as his volunteer base.

“It’s about showing we have a vision of a better future, in a time when there’s an overwhelming sense of despondency and most Democrats are doing nothing to dissuade us of that,” he said. “A democratic socialist campaign says, ‘let’s talk about what our aspirations are, how we want to live with each other — and let’s build a movement.’” Yeah, they want to spread Marxism. No thanks.

15 DSA members won elections in 11 states around the country last year. That included Lee Carter, who defeated the GOP’s majority whip in Virginia’s lower house — bringing the total number of DSA members in elected office nationwide to around 35, according to a DSA press release. At the time, then-deputy director David Duhalde predicted the victories would be “the beginning of a new wave of socialist political leaders.”

Bynum is working on a blueprint on how to run a well-organized socialist campaign. “We want to build a whole lot more competence on the left to do these things,” he said. “Right now the competence and money is with the reactionaries; we want to build more by including as many people in our campaign as possible.”

The 17 Democratic Socialists seeking office (list consists of DSA members seeking office in Texas in 2018; not all are endorsed by DSA):

The threat is real and Texans need to be aware that there is a socialist movement to take over their state. I suggest they vet their candidates carefully and vote accordingly.

Watch and circulate Trevor Loudon’s shocking documentary The Enemies Within as widely as you can before November 2018. It is a vote-changing experience.

Adam Schiff Gets Punked By Russians Who Told Him They Had Naked Pics Of Trump

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

This is just too ironic… in fact, it’s hilarious. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and all around Russian useful idiot, was the victim of a prank phone call by Russian comedians who offered to give him ‘compromising’ dirt on Donald Trump – including nude photos of the President and a Russian reality show star… more of a porn star probably. Of course, Schiff fell for it hook, line and ushanka. Way to get punked by the Russians dude.

After Schiff fell for the bait, his staff engaged in correspondence with what they thought was a Ukrainian politician to try to obtain the ‘classified’ material promised on the call. Wow, that’s impressively stupid and desperate. An audio of the prank call was posted online. Schiff can be heard discussing the committee’s Russia investigation and increasingly bizarre allegations about Trump with a man who claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament. Who falls for something like this? Does Schiff really think he’s so important that the chairman of the Ukranian Parliament would call him on this? What a joke. I guarantee if they were going to contact someone on something like this, it would not be Schiff.

The was made a year ago. Two Russian comedians nicknamed ‘Vovan’ and ‘Lexus’, who have spoofed other Democrats, were the pranksters here. They are famous for making phony phone calls to high-ranking American officials and celebrities, including UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Elton John. Juvenile… yep. Telling… even more, yep. This was first dug up by The Atlantic, but they didn’t disclose how Schiff’s staff member went about pursuing the information after the call. Schiff’s office said the congressman suspected the call was ‘bogus’ from the beginning and reported it to authorities afterward. Really? Because it sure doesn’t look that way. In a recording of the eight-minute conversation, Schiff seemed to take the call seriously – or at least played along convincingly – and emails from the Democrat’s staff to the fake politician afterwards said he had found it ‘productive’. Oh, I bet.

Schiff Claims Russian Ads Promoted The 2nd Amendment, “So We All Kill Each Other”

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Adam Schiff (D-CA) is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He’s also a leaker and a liar. He claimed last week that Russia used social media to promote the Second Amendment during the 2016 election with the hope that Americans would kill each other. I’m not kidding. He said it more than once too, during interviews with MSNBC and ABC News’ “This Week” and during a speech at the University of Pennsylvania over the past week. I have no way of knowing, but Schiff is just the kind of useful idiot that the Russians love to use.

Schiff claims that Russian intelligence pushed content that had “multiple aims” and was “designed to pit us against each other, to exploit our divisions.” His comments are primarily in response to the recently released Republican FISA memo, which he has called inaccurate. It’s not, but that doesn’t stop Schiff from lying about it. Schiff said the Russians used the Black Lives Matter movement to widen the racial divide in the US. Now, that part is true. But it’s his next claim that is a real whopper.

“Fascinatingly, they also trumpeted the Second Amendment,” Schiff said. “Apparently, the Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment. They don’t particularly want a Second Amendment of their own, but they’re really glad that we have one. The Russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly, we are.” Ah, there’s the dishonest asshat we all know and despise. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with any of this, but leftist propaganda mixed with half truths is all the rage on the left these days.

Schiff went on to blame Trump and Republicans and to say they have irreparably damaged the relationship between the Democrats and the intelligence community by releasing the FISA memo. First he said it was national security… that was a lie. Then he said the GOP would redact and skew the memo… that was a lie. Now, he claims that they’ve damaged the Dems special relationship with the FBI. Well, I bloody hope so! They weaponized the FBI and the DOJ to try and take President Trump out in a soft coup.

Republicans are “impeaching the FBI,” he told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday. “The real damage they have done is they have damaged the relationship between our committee and the intelligence committee,” Schiff said. “In the future, the Intelligence Committee is going to be very wary about sharing any information with us because they won’t trust us to be responsible stewards of it and sources of information are going to dry up.” Why should they trust someone like Schiff? He’s responsible for over 100 leaks. None of you can be trusted. You are corrupt, evil and despicable, so get over it already. People need to be fired and prosecuted over all of this and Schiff is on that list.

Schiff also said that people would also be afraid to report suspicious activities because they won’t trust that their names will be kept confidential. “If you have a neighbor next door who is buying a lot of fertilizer and it seems odd to you because they don’t have a yard,” Schiff said. “Are you going to think twice before calling the FBI? Because if they get a search warrant for your neighbor and something is politicized, and the political winds change your identity is going to be revealed.” First off, that’s sheer fear mongering. But even so, again who caused that? The left did by lying and attempting to destroy the right and by abusing their methods to get Trump. They used communist tactics and now they are getting burned for it. Amateurs.

Sources will dry up, he added. “There’s a reason why this process has never been used before,” Schiff went on. “But, even so, the process presumed that the President of the United States who has a veto over this would be a responsible person who would have the interest of the nation at heart.” The Democrats forced this with their cover-ups for Clinton and Obama. President Trump is not to blame on this in the least. The Democrats own all of this and there is much more coming down the pike. The State Department is next and by the time this is all said and done it is going to dwarf Watergate. I have said many times that the Obama administration would be the most corrupt in history and you are beginning to see all of that surface now.

Instead of Schiff uncovering a plan by Putin, he is most likely a part of one where he serves as a useful idiot to cause chaos in our government. Russia did indeed meddle in our election as they have done for decades. But they didn’t affect the outcome. In fact, the only thing they did affect was goading the Democrats into pushing propaganda and to make fools of themselves. Hillary Clinton has provable ties to Russia and she’s the one who should be investigated here along with Obama. Uranium One and Skulkovo are the true scandals here. That and the Marxists on the left like Schiff in our own government.

Trump Calls For Gov Shutdown If Congress Doesn’t Handle Immigration And Funding The Military

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Well, President Trump just won points me yet again. Today he said that he would “love” to see a government shutdown if Democrats do not agree to his demands on immigration. He’s also ticked that they are balking at funding the military. “We’ll do a shutdown and it’s worth it for our country. I’d love to see a shutdown if we don’t get this stuff taken care of,” Trump told law enforcement officials and members of Congress at the White House. Shut. It. Down. If the Dems want to play at being obstructionists, make it hurt.

At an impromptu meeting on immigration, Trump was blunt. He stated that Democrats must pass new border-security measures — funding for the wall, an end to chain migration and diversity visas — in order to halt the flow of illegal aliens, which they don’t want to do. Trump is not going to extend the work permits for DACA either at this point.

“If we don’t get rid of these loopholes where killers are allowed to come into our country and continue to kill…if we don’t change it, let’s have a shutdown,” Trump said at a White House roundtable focused on the gang MS-13. “We’ll do a shutdown and it’s worth it for our country. I’d love to see a shutdown if we don’t get this stuff taken care of.” The President’s insistence on a shutdown followed remarks from House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX), who lamented Congressional inaction on the issue. Also in attendance at the meeting were Reps. Peter King (R-NY) and Barbara Comstock (R-VA), as well as Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.

Congress is trying to meet the Thursday deadline to fund the government. I’ve heard a lot of optimism from politicians that they will avoid the shutdown. It doesn’t sound that way according to the President. Republican and Democratic leaders in the Senate announced earlier Tuesday they were close to a two-year budget deal, which does not include immigration language. But what you don’t hear is that they are trying not to give more funds to the military. Dems are saying there is bipartisan support for cracking down on MS-13… but again, it’s in the wording. Republicans want them deported, Democrats don’t.

Comstock, considered among the most vulnerable Republicans in this year’s upcoming midterm elections, stressed bipartisanship on the issue and told the President that “we don’t need a government shutdown on this. We really do not,” she said. “I think both sides have learned that a government shutdown was bad. It wasn’t good for them, and we do have bipartisan support on these things.” Trump let squishy Republicans know what he thought of all this. “We have to get that, they are not supporting us,” the President said. “You can say what you want. We are not getting support of the Democrats.” So true.

“We have to strengthen our borders, not by a little bit but by a lot. We are so far behind the time. And by the way, the world is laughing at us because they can’t believe these policies,” Trump said. “We’re going to get it stopped. And if we have to shut it down because the Democrats don’t want safety — and unrelated but still related, they don’t want to take care of our military — then shut it down. We’ll go with another shutdown.” Glory freaking hallelujah! It’s about time. I’m sick to death of this political two-step on illegal immigrants. Let’s finish this.

“We’ve never really seen anything quite like this, the level of ferocity, the level of violence,” Trump said. “MS-13 recruits through our broken immigration system, violating our borders. Whenever they want to come through, they come through.” Asked by a reporter if he stood by the shutdown threat, Trump didn’t back down. “I would shut it down over this issue. I can’t speak for everybody at the table but I will tell you, I would shut it down over this issue,” he said. “If we don’t straighten out our border, we don’t have a country. Without borders we don’t have a country. So would I would shut it down over this issue? Yes.”

Trump angered his supporters by reaching out to Democrats and offering a path to citizenship for as many as 1.8 million immigrants who came to the US illegally as children in exchange for billions of dollars for a wall along the southern border and steep cuts to legal immigration. The Dems basically flipped him off over it. I’m glad… that deal should never have been made. Trump can bypass these people if he really wants to. He can use the power of the Executive Branch to do so and not give amnesty to illegal aliens. Just say no to DACA.

While the President in the past has floated the possibility of extending the March 5th deadline to end the program for young immigrants, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Tuesday poured cold water on that idea. If lawmakers do not agree to an immigration deal before Thursday’s government funding deadline, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said he would hold an open debate on the issue. Call the Democrat’s bluff this time and shut the government down and keep it down until they play ball.

Dem Rep. Danny Davis Claims Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan Is An ‘Outstanding Human Being’

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny Davis was quick to defend Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as an “outstanding human being” yesterday. Well, birds of a feather. Davis is an openly socialist member of Congress that is in fact a stone cold communist. You hang out with others like yourself, so it figures he would think an evil man like Farrakhan was a wonderful human being. Farrakhan is an anti-Semite, a racist and a radical Islamist. He blames Jews for the September 11th attacks, saying white people “deserve to die” and praises Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.”

Davis was close with Communist Party USA member Frank Lumpkin and even spoke at his funeral. He’s also a member in good standing with the Democratic Socialists of America. There’s not enough room here to list all he has done, but Davis has sponsored and supported every progressive/communist cause out there and he’s a big supporter of CAIR. To read up on Danny Davis, visit KeyWiki.org.

Last week, I wrote on a new photo that emerged showing Barack Obama and Louis Farrakhan together at the Congressional Black Congress. That photo from 2005 was deliberately suppressed to protect Obama’s political aspirations. Davis has been in Congress since 1997. He was very close to Barack Obama and defended him meeting with Farrakhan. “I personally know [Farrakhan], I’ve been to his home, done meetings, participated in events with him,” Davis told The Daily Caller.

“I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being who commands a following of individuals who are learned and articulate and he plays a big role in the lives of thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people,” he emphasized later. Oh brother. That should scare the crap out of people all by itself. Davis also said “it wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary” for him to meet with Farrakhan and said that Farrakhan isn’t considered a fringe character in his hometown of Chicago. And that is true. Radicals abound in Chicago and Obama has been to more than one barbecue with Farrakhan.

When asked about Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic comments, Davis was dismissive and said that many people in politics have a history of inflammatory comments. Inflammatory is one thing, hateful is another. Farrakhan’s comments are not only vile, they incite violence against others. But Davis and Obama aren’t the only ones in Congress who embrace this demon. Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison is Muslim and a huge supporter of Farrakhan. That’s the number two guy in the Democratic Party. Ellison has defended Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic remarks. He has since apologized for that, but I don’t believe him in the least. He still managed to blame a “right-wing smear campaign” for questions about his ties to anti-Semitic figures.

Danny Davis is yet another communist in the Democratic Party. They are full of them these days. It’s not surprising in the lease that he would come to the defense of his comrade Farrakhan. What’s amazing is that Davis keeps getting reelected.

Nikki Haley Tells Republicans That ‘Russia Is Not Our Friend’ At GOP Retreat Dinner

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

I get more enamored of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley with each passing day. Somehow I missed this story. Last Thursday night Haley in no uncertain terms told congressional Republicans that Russia is no “friend” of America and doubled-down on President Trump’s recent request that Congress help stop giving money to countries that don’t support the United States. Glory freaking hallelujah! It’s about damn time someone said it. “Russia is not our friend,” Haley said at a dinner at the Greenbrier resort, where the Republicans were holding their annual retreat. “There may be some things we can work with them on, and we should do that where we can. But Russia … will not be our friend as long as their government has the values that it has, and as long as it conducts itself the way it does internationally.” And don’t forget, as long as it is communist.

Haley’s speech comes after more than a year-long investigation by the politically weaponized Justice Department and FBI into whether associates of Trump colluded with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential race or during the transition period before the administration moved into the White House. So far… they have found squat. Yes, Manafort is being charged with financial misdeeds from years before the election… I’m all in on that. Flynn was let go for ties to the Russians… I agree with that as well. And yes, I still believe Carter Page is a Russian plant… but none of those translate to President Trump doing anything out of line. And they’ll never prove what just doesn’t exist. There is far more Russian collusion on the left with Hillary Clinton and that is actually provable.

While I am sure that in some way Trump admires Putin, he also knows what a dangerous threat he is to this nation and to the world. I think his advisers and military leaders disabused him of the idea that we could ever be chums. Haley on Thursday evening cited several examples that suggest the administration is tough on Russia — including that it sent weapons to the Ukraine, conducted a military strike on Russian allies in Syria and expelled Russian diplomats in the U.S. Now, if they could just ferret out the spies they have in our government, our media and other places here in the U.S. we’d be getting somewhere.

“That fact is this: In the last year, this administration has been tougher on Russia than any American administration since Ronald Reagan,” she said to applause. “I have no idea what Russia expected from the American elections. But I have to tell you, they are not happy with what they ended up with. And that’s the way it should be, until Russia starts to act like a responsible country,” Haley noted. Slow clap… that’s on point and absolutely right.

“And as long as it conducts itself the way it does internationally. Russia is the defender of Assad’s brutal regime in Syria aiding and abetting atrocities against Syrian civilians and vetoing every effort at the U.N. to hold Assad accountable. Russia has an increasingly close alliance with Iran and protects Iran against more vigorous nuclear inspections,” she continued. “Russia continues still legally occupy Ukrainian territory in our own hemisphere. Russia the defender and bankroller of the corrupt and lawless Maduro regime in Venezuela and yes Russia did meddle in our elections. That is not a controversial statement. Russia has been meddling in Western countries’ elections for many years.” That’s exactly what I have been saying forever. I’m thrilled she stated it.

The one thing I saw that gives me pause over the last couple of weeks is that the administration recently said it would not impose new, congressional-imposed sanctions on Russia for meddling in the 2016 elections. But I think I understand why… it hasn’t been substantively proven yet and I don’t think they want to go down that road until their ducks are in a row. Especially with how close we are to war with Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. Haley made it very clear that Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, but also noted that “there is no reason to think the Russian interference made any difference between who won and lost. The very fact that they did it is an outrageous thing, and something the administration is taking steps to prevent in the future,” Haley said.

California GOP Rep. Ed Royce introduced Haley and called her “a rising star” in the Republican Party and a “force” in the United Nations. She is that and more. Haley is an absolute lioness on the geopolitical stage. Haley, a former GOP South Carolina governor, on Thursday night also asked Congress to pass legislation to “help ensure American foreign-assistance dollars always serve American interests, and only go to America’s friends.” That echoes Trump statement during his SOTU address that he wants to restrict billions in U.S. foreign aid to “American friends.” That’s the sane approach, not the groveling one that Obama took.

“This is hugely important,” said Haley to the congressional Republicans, whom she also thanked for their public service. “It’s outrageous to see so many countries who we support go against us at the U.N. In many cases, it’s just that we have not told them we expect them to have our backs at the U.N. That needs to stop. The President and I are now telling all countries we’re watching their votes, and we’re taking names. We need your help to send the same message.” That is an entirely different approach than what we have seen in previous administrations.

“What a difference a year makes,” said Haley, who touted such first-year successes for the administration as dismantling the ISIS and enforcing chemical-weapons restrictions in Syria. We’ve damn near wiped out ISIS and Mattis has become a larger than life nightmare for terrorists out there. He is now turning his gaze towards Russia and China. They should probably take that seriously. Just sayin’. If Haley keeps this up, we may one day see her in the Oval Office.
