THE PUPPET-MASTERS: Is China Orchestrating the Democrats` Faux Impeachment Scheme?

Doug Ross @ Journal

Last Thursday, a caller into the Mark Levin Show made a brilliant point: Joe Biden has been completely compromised by Red China, and perhaps other foreign interests. His family members, and perhaps Biden himself, have significant personal wealth now controlled by Beijing.

While his troubled son Hunter may have forfeited his “board seat” (as an aside, how many no-show jobs does this clown have?), his ownership stake in the $1.5 billion “hedge fund” appears to remain in force. The typical fee that managers would charge for these assets would typically be between $15 and $30 million a year. Nice work if you can get it. And you can’t, because your last name isn’t that of a powerful Democrat politician.

Biden isn’t the only one beholden to China. John Kerry’s stepson is a partner in Rosemont Seneca, the investment firm that “partnered” with the Bank of China to create a $1 billion investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). As Peter Schweizer notes:

What was not reported was the deal that Hunter was securing. Rosemont Seneca Partners had been negotiating an exclusive deal with Chinese officials, which they signed approximately 10 days after Hunter visited China with his father. The most powerful financial institution in China, the government’s Bank of China, was setting up a joint venture with Rosemont Seneca.

Often those foreign entities gained favorable policy actions from the United States government just as [the Kerry and Biden] sons were securing favorable financial deals from those same entities.

The Bank of China is an enormously powerful financial institution. But the Bank of China is very different from the Bank of America. The Bank of China is government-owned, which means that its role as a bank blurs into its role as a tool of the government. The Bank of China provides capital for “China’s economic statecraft,” as scholar James Reilly puts it. Bank loans and deals often occur within the context of a government goal.

As an aside, Associated Press, you feckless loons, the charges against the Biden and Kerry families aren’t “baseless” as you claim. They’re well-documented. You just have to know how to read a book or use Google DuckDuckGo.

So how did a seemingly drug-addicted ne’er-do-well pull down a $1.5 billion “investment” from China? We know why. Because his Dad was serving as the United States Vice President at the time; he had a reasonable shot at becoming President; and Communist Red China wanted an inexpensive way to control a weak-willed, lifetime politician.

China has not only compromised Biden, it is extremely likely that they are actively colluding with Democrats and the media to take down Trump.

Consider Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), whose financial ties to the Red Chinese are well-known through her husband, who somehow (like Hunter Biden) landed tens of millions of dollars in “investments” as she chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee. Worse yet, China was able to implant a spy into her staff for about 20 years. But, of course, she knew nothing.

We all know that President Trump is costing China a lot of money.

The media’s unprecedented and insane attacks against Trump raise my Spidey-sense.

How much would it take to buy off the likes of Chuck Todd, or Jake Tapper, or Brian Stelter? Probably a lot less than $1.5 billion, that’s for sure. Their unhinged and nonstop attacks against the 45th Commander-In-Chief are unprecedented. I don’t care about Trump’s tax returns. How about Todd’s or Tapper’s?

President Bill Clinton’s traitorous deals with Red China, which involved him trading sophisticated missile guidance technology in exchange for campaign contributions are well-documented. But that kind of collusion is of no interest to the media.

The potential ties between Democrats, Media, and Red China make me extremely uncomfortable. In my view, it is likely that the Red Chinese have compromised the Democrat leadership and are now orchestrating the so-called “impeachment” of President Donald J. Trump.

Prove me wrong.

Abolishing Columbus Day is Based on Lies

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Roughly 10 states and 100+ U.S. cities observe some version of Indigenous Peoples Day this month.

Native American advocates have been working since the early 1990s to get states to make the swap, the AP reports.

From today: Columbus statues in San Francisco and Providence, Rhode Island, were vandalized with red paint, CNN reports.

“Vandals had chained a sign to the base of the statue that said ‘Stop Celebrating Genocide’ and spray-painted the word ‘Genocide’ on the monument.”

***

You can be sure this all began within the education system where U.S. history was taught using Howard Zinn’s book entitled A People’s History of the United States. This book was full of lies and distortions that educators and faculty including higher education administrators put forth and never bothered to validate any claim he made. Now we have legislators at the state level that have bought into the same falsehoods.

In part from The Federalist:

Zinn died in 2010, but his work continues on through the Zinn Education Project that in September collaborated with the Smithsonian in offering credit-bearing “teach-in” classes on abolishing Columbus Day for teachers. On October 8 they mailed out a newsletter that lauded two states, Maine and New Mexico, and cities, such as Columbus, Ohio, and Alexandria, Virginia, that in the past year replaced Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day. Also just joining the list are Washington, D.C. and Princeton, New Jersey.

The newsletter urged teachers to purchase and download their materials to lead students in lobbying their schools and cities to join the effort to “Abolish Columbus Day.”

“Celebrating Columbus means celebrating colonialism, celebrating racism, celebrating genocide,” the newsletter announced. Instead, “tribute” should be paid “to the people who were here first, who are still here, and who are leading the struggle for a sustainable planet.”

The political agenda is clear. Like Zinn himself, the project presents the American Indian as one amorphous mass embodying the stereotype of communistic pacifist feminists. It’s the “Usable Indian,” which at one time embodied the “savage,” but then in the 1960s the hippie. The Indian serves as proxy in the never-ending “struggle.”

Truth be told, as an explorer, Columbus made four trips, never reaching what is known as America or any part of the mainland. In 1492, Columbus reached the Bahamian islands, arriving in San Salvador.

Whose History Matters? Students Can Name Columbus, But ...

He sailed around islands such as Hispaniola and the Dominican Republic. He soon departed leaving behind a handful of crew members. Arriving back in Spain, he had very little to offer the Queen. In 1493, he sailed again reaching Hispaniola finding the settlement destroyed and ordered it rebuilt. He did gift the Queen about 500 slaves and she was horrified ordering them to be returned. In 1498, he sailed again and reached Trinidad and the South American mainland. Here there was a bloody revolt and Spanish authorities sent a new governor to take over.

There was one more trip in 1502. This time he reached what is known as Panama. Due to major storms, there was such damage to two of his four ships, two had to be abandoned. He returned once again to Spain, for the most part again empty-handed and he died in 1506.

He kept a journal which he gifted to the Queen.

Christopher Columbus Diary Quotes. QuotesGram

In all of his travels, in the end, the result was, in fact, more open trade between Spain and Latin America in goods such as wheat, coffee, sugar, corn, tomatoes, and potatoes.

Ever wonder if the part about successful trade entered any part of the studies of Columbus?

The Frightened Old Woman with Her Trump 2020 Flag

By: Lloyd Marcus

Scouting a location to shoot a promotional video for my Trump Train 2020 song, my wife Mary and I spotted a lovely home with a huge Trump 2020 flag waving in the breeze on a flagpole. After knocking on the front door and introducing myself, I assured the elderly white homeowner that we would not show her address in our video.

Still, she declined our request to allow Mary to shoot video of me with her Trump 2020 flag in the background. She was terrified of being persecuted by Trump haters. It is outrageous that citizens are afraid to publicly express support for the president of the United States. The atrocious reality is Democrats and fake news media continue to instigate hate and violence against Trump voters.

Folks, we are in the process of losing our country right now, not somewhere down the road. Democrats are aggressively repealing your constitutional right to free speech. New York City will fine you $250,000 for saying “illegal alien.”

The only thing standing between Democrats and fake news media implementing their insane job-killing, anti-American, socialistic, and anti-Christian agenda nationwide is Donald J. Trump in the White House.

Fake News Media and Democrats’ hate-driven obsession with removing Trump from office is so over-the-top that it has literally become an episode of the “Twilight Zone.” Irrefutable proof that Trump did not pressure the Ukraine president to interfere in our election is being ignored. Democrats are moving forward with impeaching Trump based solely on Adam Schiff’s easily proven lies about what Trump said to the president of Ukraine.

Democrats have put all their eggs to win the presidency in 2020 into their Impeach-Trump basket. Their game plan is to sell voters their absurd lie that Trump is so corrupt that they had to impeach him.

The truth is that Trump has done nothing wrong. As a matter of fact, Trump is determined to restore power, as written in the Constitution, to We the People. He has built an unprecedented long list of remarkable achievements for America.  If Trump is not reelected, Democrats will begin reversing his achievements, repealing your individual liberties, and abandoning Trump’s America First agenda.

This is why my Trump Train 2020 song is so important. It is not just an ordinary nice song. I sincerely believe it was divinely inspired for such a crucial time as this. My Trump Train 2020 song will inspire, encourage, and embolden you. The song lets people know the great things Trump has done and is doing to save and restore our beloved country. Keeping his promises, Trump truly is making America great again.

Here is a bit of insider info about the recording session of the Trump Train 2020 song. My music producer and I had trouble finding Maryland singers and a recording studio willing to record a song supportive of Trump. We eventually found a recording studio. Singers from various states responded to my clarion call. We had singers black and white, old and young. Fourteen-year-old Justice, whose mom brought her all the way to Maryland from Florida, did a great job belting out her solo line, “Can you hear the whistle sound!” I love this kid.

After our awesome recording session which felt like a family reunion, the owner of the recording studio emailed me. He raved about how much fun he had and how it was a pleasure working with such a great group of nice people. Clearly, we Trump supporters were not the deplorable racist haters characterized by fake news media and Democrats.

Patriots, I cannot express upon you how important it is that we counter fake news media and Democrats’ relentless 24/7 flooding the airwaves with lies designed to deceive, intimidate, and dispirit Trump and his supporters. To win in 2020, Democrats and fake news media hope to destroy Trump’s character in the minds of a majority of voters.

It is infuriating that Democrats’ resistance to Trump has become so deranged that the elderly white woman with the Trump 2020 flag was afraid to risk her home being seen in my video.

I shot my one-minute promotional video for the Trump Train 2020 song at the beautiful Potomac river in West Virginia.

To be reelected, president Trump desperately needs and truly appreciates the support of everyone who loves America.

The Dumbing Down of the US Perfectly Illustrated in the Ukraine ‘Investigation’

By: Frank Salvato

This is what happens when we stop teaching civics and government classes in high school. People start believing that politics is government and that appearances and personal opinion circumvent the rule of law and the US Constitution. This is a direct result of the Progressive Movement having captured the education system and the mainstream media complex.

The Associated Press published a piece on October 12th, titled, “Former Ukraine envoy testifies Trump pushed to oust her”. In the article it states:

“…former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch told House impeachment investigators Friday that Trump himself pressured the State Department to oust her from her post and get her out of the country.”

Just the day before the AP published no less than three articles under three different titles covering the exact same content:

You will please note that they are all different URL links to separate stories. To say that the AP – and this is just one of the usual suspects in the mainstream media complex – is pushing this story would be a grotesque understatement.

That propaganda initiative aside, this brings me to the larger point to be made in this article. Everyone in the Executive Branch – with the complication of agency, bureau, and departmental Inspector Generals – serves at the pleasure of the President of the United States. This is especially true of US Ambassadors.

Merriam-Webster explains that the phrase means, literally:

“…used to say that something is done or can be done because someone wants it to be done; i.e. ‘I serve at the pleasure of the president, and I will continue to serve as long as the president wants me to.’”

To wit – and with regard to these incredibly misleading AP stories, the President doesn’t need to “pressure” anyone to have a sitting US Ambassador removed from the post. He simply needs to express his desire for the removal to take place. The President doesn’t even need to provide a reason.

The same Progressive charlatans that are trying to make the electorate believe that politics is government; that the political wrangling we are served up each and every day on talk radio and the alphabet news programs is actually the execution of government, want us to believe that the removed US Ambassador had a “right” to her position above that of existing at the pleasure of the President of the United States. This notion is demonstrably false, yet it is being advanced on the American public without definition, examination, or discussion.

The American citizenry has “enlightened” itself into the perfect storm without even realizing it following the old adage about the frog in the pot of boiling water. Progressives have increased their ideological manipulation of the American people so incrementally that we have willingly abdicated our knowledge of how our government works, what its responsibilities are, what its boundaries are, and – literally – its purpose.

Today, as our education system and mainstream media complex openly manipulate reality and the facts of the matter, We the People are vulnerable because of what Donald Rumsfeld used to call the “unknown-unknowns”. We don’t know what we don’t know…and that’s a terrifying state in which to exist.

American Maoists Building Support for Mexican Revolutionary Movement: Huge Implications for US National Security

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (C), Mexican Navy Secretary Jose Rafael Ojeda Duran (R) and Mexican Defence Secretary General Luis Cresencio Sandoval, take part in a parade celebrating a new anniversary of the country’s independence, at the Zocalo Square in Mexico City on September 16, 2019.

The United States’ main Maoist organization, Liberation Road, is developing support networks for Mexico’s ruling leftist party MORENA and its leader, Mexico’s socialist president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (popularly known as AMLO).

Liberation Road sees Mexico under its present leadership as a major force for the revolutionary transformation of the United States. With a population of around 128 million, a communist Mexico, sharing a 2,000-mile border with this country, would become a national security nightmare of epic proportions. America’s Maoists are working hard to make that nightmare a reality.

According to Liberation Road’s newly formed Solidarity Project with the People of Mexico:

“México, more than any other country of the world, will influence our struggle in the US for transformational change from imperialist capitalism to socialism. Will the US succeed in maintaining Mexico as a vassal state? Or will México point the way for US social movements to gain governing power?”

Liberation Road is the new name for Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), a national communist formation formed out of the various Maoist splinter groups of the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. The name change—instituted at a completely unpublicized national congress in April—ends years of confusion. Another group also calling itself Freedom Road Socialist Organization, centered around FightBack! magazine, split from the main group in 1999. All future references to FRSO in this article refer to the larger FRSO/Liberation Road formation.

In recent years, FRSO has built a [email protected] Left Project/Project Izquierda Latina, aimed at building bridges with Latin American revolutionary movements. Since the victory of AMLO and MORENA in 2018, Mexico has become a major focus of Liberation Road’s Latin American solidarity work.

According to the Washington Post, AMLO was always on the far left even while he worked inside the mainstream of Mexican politics:

“Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador began his political career with the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which had been at the heart of Mexico’s authoritarian system since 1929.

“’At the time, there was no other option for an aspiring politician,’ said José Agustín Ortiz Pinchetti, a former top aide to Lopez Obrador …

“Even during his PRI days, Lopez Obrador saw himself as an activist, representing the state of Tabasco in negotiations with Pemex, trying to convince oil workers that they should demand better wages and benefits. He named his son Jesús Ernesto after Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, the Marxist guerrilla who fought with Fidel Castro in Cuba. …

“But the PRI grew frustrated with Lopez Obrador, considering him ‘a communist with Cuban instincts’ …”

In 1989, AMLO joined the left-leaning Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) and was the party’s national leader between 1996 and 1999. He left the PRD in 2012 to later found the National Regeneration Movement (MORENA), which catapulted him to the presidency in July 2018 in alliance with the leftist Labor Party and the moderate Social Encounter Party. AMLO won with 53 percent of the vote.

AMLO has maintained close ties to the Sao Paolo Forum, an alliance of more than 100 socialist and communist parties credited with moving most of Latin America into the socialist camp in the 1990s. The Forum was founded by Cuba’s communist leader Fidel Castro and former Brazilian president Lula da Silva “to save what had been lost of Communism in Eastern Europe and the old USSR.”

Through a letter to the 2011 meeting of the Sao Paulo Forum, AMLO explained the rationale behind his new MORENA project. He emphasized that MORENA has as its first task to defeat the “political oligarchy” of Mexico.

AMLO told the assembled Marxist revolutionaries from all over South and Central America:

“We can share that in these difficult times for Mexico, we are building a popular and citizen movement that seeks to carry out the deep transformation of the country …”

One of Liberation Road’s key points of contact to the Mexican revolutionary movement has been Javier Bravo, a MORENA activist and a professor of history and archaeology at the University of Guanajuato and a participant in  FRSO’s Project Izquierda Latina.

Bravo studied in the Soviet Union at the end of the openly communist era and lives part of the year in Havana, Cuba. FRSO/Liberation Road has brought Bravo to the United States for at least two tours to explain the revolutionary potential of MORENO and its leader AMLO to U.S. comrades.

On Sept. 19 and 20, Bravo addressed Liberation Road’s Mexican Solidarity Coalition / Coalicion en Solidaridad con Mexico in San Diego. The meeting was organized by longtime FRSO/Liberation Road activist Martin Eder.

The Mexican Solidarity Coalition wrote on Facebook:

“Professor Javier Bravo, a long-time activist and a rep for MORENA will be … speaking about current struggles in Mexico & how we build a movement against Trump to stop the right-wings ethnic cleansing against Mexican & other immigrants.”

This followed a Boston meeting for Bravo convened Sunday, Sept. 15, which was co-sponsored by Liberation Road and the Solidarity Project with the People of Mexico.

Co-organizers were Garrett Virchick of the Boston Teachers Union and Gabriel Mireles, associate director of the Massachusetts Nurses Association—both known Liberation Road affiliates.

Mireles wrote on the Liberation Road website that his Solidarity Project with the People of Mexico had four main objectives:

1/ Expose and resist political, social, military and economic US interventionist efforts that deny Mexico the right to self-determination and aim to bring down the AMLO government. …

2/ Provide information and analysis about what’s really happening in Mexico to counter the mainstream media that demonizes and/or belittles leftist governments.

3/ Spread the lessons from Mexico’s experience of movement building and electoral activism to increase democratic participation and build progressive independent political organization within the US that would advance a pro-people foreign policy.

4/ Build a broad-based grassroots solidarity project of individuals and organizations on the model of CISPES to connect social movement activists on both sides of the border to shift power from US and Mexican elites to the peoples of our countries.

CISPES refers to the Committee in Solidarity with the Peoples of El Salvador, one of the communist movement’s most successful operations on U.S. soil.

In 1980, the El Salvadoran Communist Party, then fighting a guerrilla war with their government, sent Farid Handal, brother of the Party chairman, Shafik Handal, to the United States. His mission was to organize a North American support network for the El Salvadoran guerrilla army.

According to Newsweek journalist Arnaud de Borchgrave, quoted in The American Journal of International Law:

“CISPES was formed in October 1980 as a direct result of a visit to the United States by Farid Handal, brother of the secretary general of the Salvadoran Communist Party Shafik Handal. His principal adviser in this venture was Alfredo Garcia Almeida, at that time the station chief of the Departamento de America of the Cuban Communist Party in New York. …

“CISPES was subsequently set up as a tax-exempt organization with an office in Washington and countrywide chapters, that included 500 college campuses.”

CISPES consistently supported the El Salvadoran communists, agitating against U.S. aid to the El Salvadoran elected government and also joining in demonstrations against aid to the anti-communist forces in neighboring Nicaragua.

Clearly, Liberation Road, which enjoys close relations with the larger Communist Party USA (with an estimated 5,000 members) and the nearly 60,000-member strong Democratic Socialists of America, intends on building major operations in support of the unfolding Mexican revolution.

In a recent conversation, a moderate former member of MORENA told me that the leading militant faction of the party is planning a major swing to the hard left, probably after Mexico’s 2021 congressional elections. In the words of my contact, “they know this will wreck the Mexican economy—but they don’t care.”

If AMLO and MORENO take Mexico’s 128 million down the Cuba/Venezuela road as it seems they intend to do, the consequences could turn into the worst national security crisis this country has ever faced.

Venezuela’s Marxist-driven economic and political crises have driven more than 2 million refugees into neighboring countries. If AMLO and MORENO succeed in driving Mexico to economic ruin, we could see 10s of millions of refugees clamoring to cross the border into the United States. Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, even Florida, could be engulfed by a human tidal wave like nothing we have ever seen before. This chaos would be a major advance for the Mexican, U.S., and world revolutionary movements.

The current flooding of the border by 10s of then thousands of illegal immigrants a month could be seen as a dress rehearsal for a possible human tsunami currently building in Mexico.

President Ronald Reagan fought with mixed success to overturn the communist revolutions in Cuba, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. He understood that if communism was not pushed back in Central America it would eventually reach the U.S.–Mexico border—we are now almost at that point.

President Donald Trump must pick up Reagan’s fallen sword before it’s too late.

The first step is to order an investigation of Liberation Road’s Mexican revolutionary support networks under the Foreign Agents Registration Act—it is very likely they are not registered as agents of the Mexican government.

President Trump has actively worked to thwart the revolutionary regimes of Cuba and Venezuela. He must soon begin to formulate plans to counter a potentially even more dangerous revolutionary movement in Mexico.

Rep. Omar to Commemorate Cuban Spy at Far-Left DC ‘Think Tank’

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN.) speaks at a press conference on the Capitol on July 15, 2019. (Holly Kellum/NTD)

Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is about to associate herself with one of the most subversive organizations in this country.

On Oct. 3, Omar will present the annual Letelier-Moffitt Awards at the Washington-based Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). The IPS is a center of both far-left policy formation and support for the Palestinian socialist cause. The Letelier-Moffitt Award is named after the late Orlando Letelier, a paid Cuban intelligence agent.

With Omar’s strong ties to radical groups such as the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the Palestinian socialist cause, she is a perfect fit for the IPS—whose columnists have been defending her regular outrageous statements since her election to Congress.

An IPS press release states:

“We’re excited to announce that Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota’s 5th District will present this year’s Letelier-Moffitt Awards!

“Rep. Omar has made herself a key figure in the progressive movement by working with a diverse group of legislators on the best ideas in politics today; bold, transformative policies like student loan forgiveness, Medicare for All, and a Green New Deal.

“We’re thrilled to work with her and delighted to welcome her into our community.”

Omar’s IPS connection should raise all sorts of alarm bells.

For many years, the IPS was the largest and most influential of the far-left think tanks in Washington. From its founding in 1963, it steadily pushed a pro-Soviet line on foreign policy, defense, and the economy.

In a 1978 article in National Review, Brian Crozier, then director of the London-based Institute for the Study of Conflict, described the IPS as the “perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB.”

The Letelier-Moffitt Award has its roots in Chile’s bloody anti-communist counter-revolution of the early 1970s.

Assassination

In 1973, at the request of the Chilean parliament, Chile’s generals stepped in to remove pro-Castro socialist President Salvador Allende from office for alleged gross breaches of the country’s constitution. Allende committed suicide in the presidential palace rather than surrender to the military. For several years afterward, the military brutally cracked down on Chilean socialists, communists, and terrorists. Thousands were imprisoned, many were executed, and some simply “disappeared.”

One of the victims of the anti-communist purge was Allende’s former ambassador to the United States, Orlando Letelier. After a period of imprisonment, Letelier was allowed to leave Chile, settling first in Venezuela, then in Washington at the suggestion of IPS staffer Saul Landau, a personal friend of Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro.

In 1975, Letelier became a senior fellow of the IPS, where he soon became a leader of the leftist resistance to anti-communist Chilean President Augusto Pinochet. On Sept. 10, 1976, Pinochet officially deprived Letelier of his Chilean citizenship.

Undeterred, Letelier carried on his efforts to bring down the Pinochet government. He was reportedly responsible for the cancellation of several major European loans to Chile, which made him a major enemy of the government. He was described by one of his colleagues as being “the most respected and effective spokesman in the international campaign to condemn and isolate” Chile’s anti-communist government.

On Sept. 21, 1976, Letelier was traveling to work with an IPS colleague Ronni Moffitt and her husband. As they were driving down Washington’s Embassy Row at 9.35 a.m. a bomb exploded in their car. Within an hour, Moffitt and Letelier were pronounced dead. Moffitt’s husband survived.

It was later revealed that the bomb had been planted at the direction of Chile’s intelligence service, the DINA.

During the investigation into the assassination, the FBI leaked documents to The Washington Times columnist Jack Anderson, and others, which indicated that Letelier had been an Eastern Bloc intelligence operative. Letelier had also apparently been coordinating his activities with the Chilean government-in-exile, then based in communist East Berlin.

Letelier was reportedly working closely with Allende’s daughter, Beatriz Allende, who was married to a senior Cuban intelligence officer. While working for the IPS, Letelier was being paid $1,000 a month (no small sum in 1976) from Cuba’s communist regime.

So in giving out the Letelier-Moffitt Award, Omar is, in effect, honoring the memory of a paid Cuban agent-of-influence.

Marxist Ties

Today’s IPS maintains strong ties to the DSA and other domestic Marxist groups. The IPS has several DSA comrades on staff, including Ashik Siddique, a research analyst with IPS’s National Priorities Project, and John Feffer, co-director of IPS webzine Foreign Policy in Focus. The Metro DC DSA steering committee even holds its meetings in an IPS office.

Like Omar, the IPS is uncompromisingly pro-Palestine and anti-Israel.

Khury Petersen-Smith is the Michael Ratner Middle East Fellow at the IPS. He researches “U.S. empire, borders, and migration.”

Until earlier this year, Petersen-Smith was a leading member of the now-disbanded International Socialist Organization. According to the Socialism 2016 conference website: “He has written about Black and Palestinian liberation and US empire for Socialist Worker and the International Socialist Review. He co-authored the ‘Black Statement of Solidarity with Palestine’ in 2015, which was signed by over 1,100 mainly communist Black activists, artists, and scholars.”

In April, Petersen-Smith, with his IPS colleague Noura Erakat. held an event with the Tufts University chapter of the far-left Students for Justice in Palestine, titled “Black Solidarity With Palestine.”

Veteran IPS staffer Phyllis Bennis runs the IPS’ New Internationalism Project. In 2001, she helped found the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights. She advises several leading U.N. officials on Palestine and was twice in contention to be appointed the U.N. special rapporteur on the occupied Palestinian territory.

Bennis was also a leading member of Line of March, a Marxist-Leninist group that supported first communist China and then the Soviet Union.

The IPS still maintains strong ties to Cuba and played a role in President Barack Obama’s disastrous directive to ease sanctions on Havana, which probably saved the communist dictatorship from imminent collapse.

In July 2015, as the communist flag was raised over the newly re-established Cuban Embassy on 16th Street NW in Washington, Bennis and her IPS and ex-Line of March comrade James Early “joined in the delirious shouts of ‘Viva Cuba!’,” according to The Washington Post.

“It’s an amazing moment,” Bennis told The Washington Post. “In the decades-long effort to normalize relations with Cuba, to stop the US attacks and hostility toward Cuba, we have not had so many victories. Suddenly we have a victory. The flag going up—that’s huge.”

“For those of us who were committed to the values and the aspirations of the Cuban revolution,” said Early, raising that flag again “is a recognition of Cuba’s right to sovereignty and self-determination.”

Right from the start, the IPS built networks of contacts among congressional legislators and their staff, academics, government officials, and the national media. The IPS’ main aim has always been to influence U.S. government policy in favor of the world socialist movement.

It’s no surprise to see the IPS welcome Omar into its radical bosom.

For the Soul of America, “Shifty” Schiff Must Go

By: Lloyd Marcus

Folks, I don’t know about you, but I am extremely annoyed. I grew up believing in Superman’s America which stood for truth, justice and the American way. But when I see blatantly corrupt politician Adam Schiff in charge of a bogus investigation to impeach our obviously innocent president, something has gone terribly wrong in our country. My heart is heavy for my beloved country and the rule of law.

Allow me to recap for soccer moms and dads who are busy earning a living. Fake news media and Democrats have launched another lie-filled, treasonous silent coup to remove Trump from office.

On TV, Adam Schiff lied to the world, claiming that during a phone call Trump threatened the president of Ukraine. Schiff said that Trump told the Ukraine president that if he did not dig up dirt on Joe Biden, he would hold back funds from Ukraine.

To the horror of Schiff, Democrats and fake news media, Trump made the unprecedented decision to publicly release the transcript of the phone call between himself and the Ukraine president. The transcript proved that everything Schiff reported Trump said was a lie.

In an America in which truth and justice rule, Schiff would be politically tarred and feathered and run out of Washington D.C. on a rail.

Incredibly, Schiff is celebrated by fake news media and Democrats. Ignoring the truth in the transcript, Democrats are still leaving Schiff in charge of their investigation to impeach Trump which is based solely on Schiff’s fabricated version of Trump’s phone call. Not only is this insane, it is infuriating.

This is not our America, folks. We cannot and must not allow Shifty Schiff to arrogantly go unpunished and wreck havoc on Trump’s presidency. At the very least, Schiff must be fired from leading his bogus impeachment investigation.

News coverage of fake news media and Democrats’ insane campaign to impeach Trump is like watching the Emperor’s New Clothes. Knowing that the Emperor was naked, all his subjects pretended to love his new outfit. A confused little boy spoke the truth, yelling, “The Emperor is naked!”

Washington D.C. knows Schiff’s impeachment investigation is based on lies. And yet, fake news media, Democrats, #NeverTrump Republicans and conservatives are behaving as if Schiff has evidence to impeach Trump. Where are the Republicans with the courage to stand up for truth and justice? In essence, yelling, “Schiff is naked!”

Despite Trump’s actual words during the phone call published for the world to see, fake news media and Democrats are behaving as if  the transcript does not exist. Atrociously, they are promoting Schiff’s made-up version of what Trump said, hoping to deceive voters.

Fake news media and the Democrats are attempting to establish a new precedent. I realize fake news media and Democrats have always spun the words of Republicans. But Schiff writing his own version of what Trump said during the phone call and boldly presenting it as the president’s actual words is a whole new level of arrogant, evil deception on the American people.

Be of good cheer, folks. God promises evildoers will get their just rewards. Shifty Schiff and his treasonous homeys will fail again in their never-ending campaign to destroy our president.

Trump will be reelected in 2020. However, we must remain engaged, each of us doing our part to ensure victory in 2020. It can be as simple as sharing with your neighbor a few of the long list of great things Trump has achieved for America. It is crucial that we counter fake news media and Democrats’ lies and non-reporting of Trump’s unprecedented achievements.

Trump has our economy booming. The Labor Department reported that unemployment is 3.5%, a 50-year low. Wages are skyrocketing. Hispanic unemployment continues to plummet to historic lows. Black unemployment is at its lowest ever.

Your fellow patriots joined me, lending their singing voices to enthusiastically sound the rallying cry for our president. The Trump Train 2020 Song website is LIVE! Enjoy the song.  Here is the link to the Facebook page. Please like and share.

So, I jumped into my car to run to the post office. Over the radio, ABC News reported that Trump said the call for impeachment is a sham. The reporter continued saying, “But the allegations are backed up in the record of the phone call.” That is a blatant lie. The transcript exonerates Trump. Do you see the massive coordinated campaign of deception and lies against our president?

The battle for 2020 is on! Let us, “Trust in God and keep your powder dry,” Oliver Cromwell.

The Purge of Conservatism from America

By: Lloyd Marcus

At the hospital for my annual physical exam, Adam Schiff was on TV in the waiting room. Schiff presented himself as alerting the American people to the “mafia boss” outrageous impeachable demands Trump made during his phone call with the president of Ukraine. Oozing with obnoxious superiority and arrogance, Schiff insidiously deceived viewers to assume he was reciting Trump’s actual words from the phone call. Schiff was lying. Not a single word of what Schiff told the American people that Trump said was in the transcript.

Proving his innocence, Trump released the transcript of the phone call. And yet, fake news media is elated that Democrats are outrageously moving forward with impeaching Trump based solely on Schiff’s lies about what Trump said. It was beyond infuriating watching Schiff boldly smear the president, carried live on all three major networks and cable outlets. Consequently, soccer moms and dads who are busy earning a living will erroneously conclude Trump did something wrong.

I wholeheartedly support Trump’s demand that Schiff should be forced to resign. It is high time that we punish Schiff and his fellow traitorous scumbags. Why aren’t Republicans helping Trump fight the deep-state’s relentless silent coup to reverse the 2016 presidential election?

Trump is the head and we are the body of his unprecedented restore America’s greatness movement. Progressives believe if they can cut on off the head (Trump), they will render us powerless, fearfully scattering and running to the tall grass for cover. Impeaching Trump would be a major victory in progressives’ quest to criminalize and purge conservative thinking from America.

Disturbingly, progressives have concluded that they simply will not tolerate Christianity, patriotism, or pushback against their transformation of America. Progressives’ behavior tells us that if it takes violence to purge conservatives from America, so be it.

A 60-something-year-old friend said a large young man ripped his red MAGA cap from his head at the beach. The deranged bully ripped up the cap and said he was taking it home to burn it. My friend said he replaced his MAGA cap with a variety of Trump caps which read “Trump 2020,” “Keep America Great,” “MAGA” and so on. Undeterred, he wears his Trump caps everywhere.

Progressives demand that we ignore thousands of years of wisdom, common sense, and scientific truths to surrender to their perverted definitions of male and female, while redefining right and wrong.

For example: I caught a glimpse of Bruce Jenner on TV dressed as a woman. I felt sorry for the guy. Clearly, he has mental issues. And yet, anyone daring to state this obvious truth risks totally financial and social destruction. Using public shaming and tyrannical new laws, progressives are purging those who speak truth; bullying us into embracing biological lies and mental illness. We must refuse to allow them to do this to us.

Everywhere you turn, progressives are aggressively demanding the purge of truth and reality. A commercial for “House Hunters” on HGTV featured a lesbian couple. Recent stats say over decades, Americans who identify as LGBT has grown to 5%. If HGTV’s goal was to truly reflect statistical diversity, it would have been more honest to feature a dwarf couple. Because progressives have strategically and relentlessly lied about the percentage of the population that is homosexual, many millennials absurdly believe at least 23% of the population is homosexual.

Google, Facebook, Twitter, entertainment media, major corporations, public education, fake news media, and the Democratic party have partnered to purge conservatism from America.

The purge of conservatism has infected families. I cannot stomach watching children in TV sitcoms and movies treating their parents like peers without authority; children speaking disrespectfully to parents. Fathers are routinely portrayed as idiots. This is a stealth tactic of progressives to instill their lie that government and progressive schoolteachers are superior providers of guidance rather than parents.

Progressive educators have usurped your God-ordained parental authority to raise your children. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Every attack on Trump is really an attack on us, the American people. This is why it is crucially important that we stand firm in our support of Trump against progressives’ no-holds-barred lie-filled campaign to impeach him.

A while ago, I wrote an article noting that Trump is only human. I questioned how much of the American left and deep state pounding away at his character 24/7 can one man take? I called upon Christians to please keep our president in their prayers and affirming their support of his America-first agenda. Rush Limbaugh recently expressed a similar concern. Rush said he believes progressives hope to make Trump physically ill. We must not allow that to happen, folks.

My fellow Americans, president Trump needs your prayers and support more than ever. Please let Trump know that We the People remain rock-solidly entrenched in his corner. I would love to see y’all at the March for Trump rally October 17th. We will not be purged from our country.
