Paradise Long-Lost

By: Tabitha Korol

Rebecca Ratcliffe’s article in the Guardian, (Women in Paradise face violence and political exclusion, campaigner tells UN, Oct. 26), concerned Randa Siniora, director of the Women’s Centre for Legal Aid and Counseling, and her recent address to the UN Security Council.  Siniora presented multi-faceted accusations against Israel, with scant background or context.  She referred to Israel as an occupying power despite the UN’s declaration of Israel’s sovereignty as a state in 1948 over territory that had been Jewish-occupied for 3,000+ years, and never ruled or developed by Muslims.  The brief “occupation” of Gaza by Israel, won in a defensive battle against five attacking Islamic armies, was voluntarily relinquished in 2005; Gaza has since been ruled by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, a terrorist organization.  Siniora’s address represents Islam’s perpetual jihad.  To Islam, the entire world falls into two kinds of “houses” – The House of Peace, Dar al-Islam, the land that Islam as already conquered, and the House of War or Chaos, Dar al-Harb, literally the rest of the world that is targeted for conquest for Allah (8:40).  There are no other designations.

Siniora shamelessly provided partial stories in an effort to elicit a biased response.  She spoke of women being chased from their homes, but neglected to explain whether the homes were legitimately built on land zoned for such construction, in keeping with Israel’s laws (and particularly because of Israel’s size), or if the homes belonged to the families of Palestinian terrorists who had harmed or killed Israeli citizens.  Or they may have been the families of the young men who were responsible for the incendiary balloons and kites that destroyed seven square miles of agricultural land, forestry, nature reserves, livestock, people’s homes and livelihoods, and causing respiratory illnesses.  She chooses to not acknowledge these deadly activities or the bombed school buses, bus stations, and restaurants; the terror tunnels that lead to schools and villages for the sole purpose of murder or kidnapping.  (At this writing, the Palestinians fired 400+ rockets today alone into Israel.)  The confiscation of their families’ homes as a consequence of these actions is a very light penalty, indeed.

On the inflated claim of a “humanitarian crisis,” she was also seeking additional funding for UNRWA, which was established in 1949 to support the 700,000 Arab refugees who fled the Arab armies’ attack against Israel, but which offered no safe haven to their brethren; the funds were never extended to the more than 850,000 Jews who fled Arab and Muslim persecution around the same time.  It is time to reduce the aid due to its “endless and exponentially expanding community of entitled beneficiaries,” the Palestinian rejection of Israel’s sovereignty and Jerusalem as its capital, their constant animus toward the United States, and because much of the subsidy is funneled through the UNRWA to support terrorism.  By allowing them to appropriate our humanitarian funds for killing, we have become their accomplices.

Michigan Faith Communities In the Cross-Hairs

By: James Simpson | Center For Security Policy


Michigan_Faith_Communities

Islam’s goal in the West, as articulated in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memorandum, is to destroy the legal and political institutions of our society and replace them with the rule of shariah (Islamic Law). To accomplish this goal, U.S. Muslim political leaders have partnered with the Left, giving them otherwise unavailable access to the many institutions controlled by the Left.

As described further on, and as most of us know through our own experience, this control extends to many U.S. mainline churches and synagogues, which the Left has turned into little more than propaganda shops for the latest leftwing fad. In so doing, they have opened the door to Islam to first present itself to Christians and Jews in a non-threatening manner and then to begin the process of “dawah,” that is, the proselytizing or preaching of Islam. Today, even some evangelical churches have fallen for the trap. It is called “Interfaith Dialogue.”

According to Gallup Polls, about 75 percent of Americans consider themselves Christians.[1] In Michigan, a Pew Research poll on religion found that 70 percent of adults identify as Christians. Of these, 25 percent are evangelicals, 18 percent are what Pew terms “mainline” Protestants, with another 8 percent categorized as “Historically Black Protestant.”  Eighteen percent are Catholic, and about 1 percent are Orthodox, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witnesses or others. Non-Christian believers make up only 5 percent of Michigan’s population.

The Marxist Plan for a One-Party State is on Track

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

“We are facing a communist revolution in America,” says analyst Trevor Loudon, as a real “blue wave” enabled the national Democratic Party to pick up as many as 40 House seats, hold the Senate Republicans to 52 seats or so, and is now threatening to put conservative states such as Florida, Texas, Georgia and others permanently into the Democratic Party column. He argues that this “Rainbow Conspiracy” strategy, unless countered by conservative organizing and education, provides the eventual basis for a socialist one-party state. How can millennials and suburban women be convinced to oppose socialist and communist schemes? Who will the Democrats run for president in 2020? Watch this explosive interview to find out.

Will The Markets Retest Their Late October Lows?

By: Kent Engelke | Capitol Securities

Led by tech, equities declined. There are numerous uncertainties… the Fed, tariffs, earnings, inflation, political issues including impeachment and other threats, Brexit, etc.

Oil, however, initially rose as Saudi Arabia unilaterally reduced oil exports by 500,000/day in December, calling for other producers to do the same, cutting production 1 million barrels from October’s levels. Gains became losses following the President’s tweet stating: “Hopefully, Saudi Arabia and OPEC will not be cutting oil production.”

As widely discussed, five weeks ago oil was $75 barrel with many firms suggesting/forecasting $100 oil in quick order, partially the result of Iranian sanctions. Last week, crude was down over 20% from those levels because of increased production/shipments. Will prices now rebound by the same magnitude in quick order?

Increased volatility is typically associated with a market top or bottom, a volatility that is today amplified by the massive proliferation of technology-based trading.

Speaking of which, most major equity averages have now retraced over 50% of the post-election surge. Will the late October lows be tested? Will the retail investors who have supported FAANG now become sellers instead of buyers?

Historically, the markets are entering into a seasonal period of strength. The question at hand is what will be the catalyst for a sustained market advance? As noted above, coverage of the multitude of uncertainties is rising.

Consensus believes political gridlock is good for the averages as the odds of any significant legislation being passed are low. I recognize this view but will also write there are considerable issues that the government must tackle but there are always considerable issues to overcome.

Ultimately it is earnings and interest rates that dictate equity direction. Government’s role is to create policies that are conducive to economic and job creation.

Returning back to a previous question, will the averages retest their lows? Bank of America said ‘yes’ based upon several technical indicators. As all know, the markets have been hijacked by technology-based trading where speed and cost of execution are valued more than liquidity and capitalization. The vast majority of these strategies have failed, producing losses anywhere between 10% and 45%.

Are the markets on the edge of yet another iteration, an iteration back to fundamental analysis where geopolitical and macroeconomic considerations are again paramount? If 89% of dollar-denominated assets have produced a negative return as per Deutsche Bank based on current strategies, the answer is yes.

Last night the foreign markets were up. London was up 0.12%, Paris was up 0.38% and Frankfurt was up 0.78%. China was up 0.93%, Japan was down 2.06% and Hang Sang was up 0.62%.

The Dow should open moderately higher on trade hopes. Oil is down for a record twelfth consecutive day following Trump’s tweet criticizing Saudi Arabia’s plan to cut output. The 10-year is up 4/32 to yield 3.17%.

Need Your Help on the Feres Doctrine

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Prepare for a little work on your part, it is a fight we need to win.

Reckless medical care, malpractice or malfeasance in the civilian world includes lawsuits and the removal of medical licenses. In the military… any and all active or former military service members can take NO action due to the Feres Doctrine.

OUTRAGEOUS.

In 2002, the Senate Judiciary Committee had a hearing to amend the Feres Doctrine or to at least include waiver language. It went nowhere.

You can read about that hearing at this link and see who was on the committee at the time.

This has nothing to do with the VA, these are military hospitals wherever they are across the world. The military has sovereign immunity.

Trump’s Victory in the Midterms was Fake News

By: Cliff Kincaid

A special report from America’s Survival, Inc.

Republican National Committee Ronna McDaniel claims the forecasted Democratic Party blue wave tsunami turned into a ripple.  In fact, Democrats could win 40 House seats, the most since Watergate. And another Watergate is what House Democrats have promised for President Trump. Democratic Party moneybags Tom Steyer spent more than $100 million promoting impeachment. He wants a return on investment.

The actual ripple, meaning something small or practically insignificant, best describes the Republican victories in the red states of Texas and Georgia. Republican Senator Ted Cruz barely survived, winning by three points, and Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp is claiming victory with just over 50 percent of the vote.

Nevertheless, former Fox anchor Eric Bolling, now with CRTV, claimed that “the blue wave never came” and that “It was all just fake news to try to hurt President Trump.” These deceptions must be challenged. The massive conservative defeats on November 6 are the result of “progressive” determination and conservative weakness, ignorance, and indifference. Fox News, with openly gay Shepard Smith spouting anti-conservative and anti-Trump remarks one hour a day, proved not to be the effective counter-balance to the liberal media. What’s worse, Fox became part of the problem when it banned criticism of hedge fund billionaire and Democratic Party donor George Soros.

Stalin Snipes Florida

By: Thomas Wigand | New Zeal

The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.”

Who said it?

Joseph Stalin of the USSR?

Or Brenda Snipes, the Broward County (Florida) Board of Elections Supervisor?

Does it matter?

Books such as The Gulag Archipelago detail the ruthlessness of Stalin, responsible for the death of millions (with Communism overall estimated to be responsible for approximately 100 million deaths during the 20th century).  While we are not suggesting Ms. Snipes and her fellow Democrats are at present plotting Gulags and mass murder, we are asserting that there is a shared propensity for totalitarianism.

As David Horowitz has observed: “Inside every Progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out.

A Legal Path Forward for the Florida GOP

By: Thomas Wigand | New Zeal

UPDATE: November 11, 2018 7:05 EST.  Within a couple of hours after this was first posted word arrived that FDLE (discussed below) has thus far refused to investigate voter fraud in Broward and Palm Beach counties.  State Attorney General Pam Bondi has sent a letter to the Commissioner of FDLE (here Bondi Letter to FDLE); unfortunately it is worded in such that while at first glance it may appear to be ordering an investigation, it is sufficiently vague to provide him with an out and to either not investigate at all, or perform an ineffective, cursory investigation.  Obviously the FDLE, like the FBI, is compromised at the top.  IT IS TIME FOR ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL MATTHEW WHITAKER TO ORDER TRUSTWORTHY DOJ PERSONNEL TO FLORIDA; THE “VOTING RIGHTS ACT” AT A MINIMUM WOULD PROVIDE FEDERAL JURISDICTION.

It is not necessary here to reiterate all of the indications of deliberate election fraud being committed on behalf of – and, this writer is convinced, at the behest of – the Democrat Party (national and state).

The indications are all over; but forget the misnamed “mainstream media” coverage.  In addition to this site, consult instead alternative outlets such as (in alphabetical order) Breitbart; Conservative Treehouse; Frontpage Mag and Gateway Pundit.  Space does not permit listing several more great sites, but the facts that you find on those alone will join the ranks of those convinced about the “behest of.”

Being master manipulators, the uniform mantras amongst Democrats (and Progressives generally) has been:

  • “No evidence” (of election interference or voter fraud), and
  • “That every vote should be counted.”

We will deal with these in order.

Tucker Carlson And Family Harassed At Country Club – Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti Pounces

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

I have an extremely low opinion of attorney Michael Avenatti – especially when it comes to how he is treating Tucker Carlson. He’s the lowest of bottom feeders and a true scumbag. Leave it to that dirtbag to pounce on Carlson when he is targeted by the communist left.

Just recently, violent Antifa thugs descended on Tucker’s DC home and mobbed it. They chanted outside and threatened Carlson and his family. One of them spoke of a pipe bomb and they cracked his front door while Tucker’s wife hid in a pantry until police could get there. They defaced his driveway and car as well. Thankfully, none of Tucker’s four children were there at the time. The police are treating it as a hate crime but I don’t think anyone has been arrested over it. I doubt they will be. It is DC after all.

Antifa chanted, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.” “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” the protesters chanted in another video posted to Twitter. “Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate,” the group wrote on Twitter, adding the hashtag “#KnockKnockTucker.” Antifa also doxxed Carlson and his family on Twitter.
