The Border Wars Plot to Destabilize and Transform America

By: Cliff Kincaid

The Center for a Secure Free Society held a news conference the other day about the roles of Russia, China, Venezuela, and other countries in flooding the U.S. with illegal aliens. Mario Duarte, Secretary of Strategic Intelligence for the Republic of Guatemala, spoke at the event, calling the caravans and their impact on U.S. border security the “weaponization” of refugees.

The term, “weaponization,” was also used by NATO’s top commander in Europe, Philip Breedlove, to describe what the Russians and Syrians were doing in the Middle East with the Islamic refugees there. Germany’s Angela Merkel welcomed them, destabilizing Europe. Here, President Trump campaigned for office on the basis of stopping this flow into the U.S. Objectively speaking, Merkel and not Trump has been serving Russian interests.

The popular reality TV show, “Border Wars,” on the National Geographic Channel, captures the determined efforts of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, ICE, DEA, the U.S. Coast Guard and local law enforcement to keep our nation safe. They fight terrorism and apprehend drug smugglers. The process of intercepting people entering the United States illegally is another mission they have. These illegal aliens have become a weapon of war, just like in the Middle East. A Border Wall would be another line of defense.

Data Proves Chicago Most Corrupt City

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It’s not like we didn’t already know that but actually, it is worse than you think. This report comes from the University of Illinois at Chicago… ruh-roh. Remember that Chicago and Los Angeles mayors are Democrats… oh yeah… Barack Obama lists Chicago as his hometown… but he never really goes there and there is corruption all over his presidential library too.

With matters like the conspiracy of the Olympics in Chicago and the whole Tony Rezko thing… the beat goes on.

Oh yeah, just for fun, you may want to read up on Operation Greylord,  corruption in the Cook County judicial system.

The prison holds an estimated 400 inmates, the worst of the worst, including convicted al Qaeda operatives, Terry Nichols, Robert Hanssen, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, and Vincent Basciano.

Joaquin “El Chapo’ Guzman, Sinaloa Cartel Leader, Convicted Of Running A Continuing Criminal Enterprise and Other Drug-Related Charges

Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera, known by various aliases, including “El Chapo” and “El Rapido,” was convicted today by a federal jury in Brooklyn, New York of being a principal operator of a continuing criminal enterprise – the Mexican organized crime syndicate known as the Sinaloa Cartel – a charge that includes 26 drug-related violations and one murder conspiracy.  Guzman Loera was convicted of all 10 counts of a superseding indictment, including narcotics trafficking, using a firearm in furtherance of his drug crimes and participating in a money laundering conspiracy.  The verdict followed a 12-week trial before U.S. District Judge Brian M. Cogan.  Guzman Loera faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment at his sentencing scheduled on June 25.

Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Assistant Attorney General Brian A.

Today Is Indeed Tectonic

By: Kent Engelke | Capitol Securities

Many times I have commented that today is tectonic. Geopolitically, I believe current events are similar to eras when the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991 or the ascension of the US as the primary global power in 1946.

The EU is in shatters.  It is increasingly apparent that this grand project is failing and this uneven and over-ambitious expansion has weakened, not strengthened, the EU. The euro is potentially both an economic and political failure.

In fact, iconic globalists such as Soros, Merkel, and Macron have all lamented and warned about the potential imminent failure of the grand experiment of a common government and currency.

A major reason for the demise is unbridled immigration that has startled most voters, a bureaucratic state that is tone deaf to its constituents, and wealth inequality at levels not experienced in several generations because of the socialist dogma that surrounds policy.

Parts of the US Democratic Party are attempting to emulate the EU in its passionate view about immigration, green energy, and socialist agenda… an agenda that is manifested in the Green New Deal. The GND has been endorsed by 70 House members, eleven Senate Democrats and at least five Democratic presidential candidates; far from the amount however needed to push through the proposal.

Will this ringing endorsement be their death knell or the event that catapults them into history as ones who dramatically altered society?

It is widely accepted that Europe and the EU no longer carry the global clout that they once carried even ten years ago. The clout has shifted to India and China. The reason is simple; the lack of growth. The Eurozone 2019 growth outlook has been cut to an anemic 1.3% rate from 1.9% in December.  Economic output in the Eurozone was lower in 2017 than it was in 2009 according to the WSJ

During the same period GDP grew by 96% in India, 139% in China and 34% in the US as per the WSJ. As the EU economy lags, Europe is becoming more divided politically, enabling Brexit type events to occur. 

Is this a good path to emulate?

Commenting directly about the energy aspect of the GND, currently, only 17% of US power is from renewables despite massive subsidies that make this power affordable. The WSJ writes that without these subsidies solar costs remain about 20% higher than natural gas and wind is two thirds more expensive. 

The bigger problem, however, is that wind and solar do not provide reliable power so backup plants that burn fossil fuels are required, a redundancy that is expensive even with subsidies.

The WSJ writes Germany receives 29% of its power from wind and solar and 38% from coal, making Germany’s electric rates the highest in Europe thus slamming growth and its competitiveness.

The GND is radical. If passed, it will change American society, at best making it noncompetitive by soaring energy costs and massive debt to achieve such goals.

Throughout our history, socialism has entered into the narrative, only to be silenced by overwhelming electoral losses, the result of our can-do culture and society.

Will such occur again today or is the proverbial nanny state about to take upon completely new dimensions?

The above is an observation of a possible event that will forever change the markets and society.

Some write the US follows Europe. If this was indeed the case every Republican would champion the GND for as noted the European grand experiment, which the GND is partially based upon, is on the verge of a spectacular failure.

Radically changing topics, markets staged a moderate advance on hopes of a budget deal and trade optimism.

Last night the foreign markets were up. London was up 0.37%, Paris was up 0.26% and Frankfurt was up 0.16%. China was up 1.87%, Japan was up 1.34% and Hang Sang was up 1.16%.

The Dow should open flat ahead of trade optimism and the belief that the government will not be again shuttered.  The 10-year is unchanged at 2.69%.

‘Green New Deal’ Could Plunge The World Into War: Part 1

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

This article is Part 1 of a two-part series on the “Green New Deal.” Part 2 will address the organizations promoting this massive socialist proposal.

The “Green New Deal” currently being promoted by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) will halve the U.S. military budget. The proposal, which enjoys the support of more than 40 other Democratic representatives, is a plan to re-organize the U.S. economy along what is deemed to be ecologically sound lines.

If fully implemented, the Green New Deal will at best plunge the world into a massive war or, at worst, into an unprecedented permanent tyranny.

Unsurprisingly, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) supports Ocasio-Cortez’s plan. After all, she is a member of the United States’ largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which is formally allied to the CPUSA through the Left Inside/Outside Project.

The Red Roots of the ‘Green New Deal’: Part 2

This article is Part 2 of a two-part series on the “Green New Deal.” Also see ‘Green New Deal’ Could Plunge the World Into War: Part 1.

Calls for a “Green New Deal” are rapidly building on the U.S. left. Promoted by openly socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the proposal calls for mass wealth redistribution, a federal jobs program, socialized health care, guaranteed minimum incomes, and the elimination of all fossil fuels from the U.S. economy by 2030, all in the name of fighting “climate change.”

In reality, the Green New Deal is a deeply socialist plan formulated and promoted by bona fide communist groups.

The Green New Deal, which only a few years ago would have been labeled as crackpot utopianism, is heralded on the left as a serious program for addressing environmental issues and social inequalities.

The Lima Group Vs. Maduro

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It is just a matter of time before Maduro flees somewhere and likely with stolen money of which it appears the U.S. Treasury and the Swift Banking System is watching carefully. The United States is listing those rogue companies, countries, and people who are evading sanctions and are helping Maduro move money for various reasons; money that belongs to Venezuela and to her people. Keep a watchful eye on South Africa, Russia, Cuba, Turkey, Syria, and Iran. More punitive sanctions may be bubbling to the surface.

Contrary to many Democrats, it was not President Trump that began this Venezuelan revolution or the eventual ouster of Maduro. In fact, it was The Lima Group joined by the Organization of American States.

Iranian Revolution at 40-Years-Old

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Jimmy Carter is unavailable for comment…..

DUBAI (Reuters) – Hundreds of thousands of Iranians marched and some burned U.S. flags to mark the revolution’s 40th anniversary on Monday as Tehran showed off ballistic missiles in defiance of U.S. efforts to curb its military power.

Soldiers, students, clerics and black-clad women holding small children thronged streets across Iran, many with portraits of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Shi’ite cleric who toppled the Shah in an Islamic uprising that still haunts the West.

Pro-Iran Socialist Yasmine Taeb Runs for Virginia State Senate

Muslim socialist attorney Yasmine Taeb is challenging Virginia Senate Minority Leader Dick Saslaw (D-VA) for the seat representing Northern Virginia’s 35th District that he’s held since 1980.

While a longshot (Saslaw usually wins with more than 70 percent of the vote), Taeb may have powerful allies in her camp.

Currently, she is seeking the endorsement of a group she formally joined last fall: the country’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). DSA activists from Northern Virginia and Washington pulled off a major upset in November 2017 when their comrade in the DSA, Lee J. Carter (another socialist running as a Democrat), unseated Republican House of Delegates Majority Whip Jackson Miller in the 50th District.

Are the Days of Roe v. Wade Numbered?

By: Lloyd Marcus

A verse in the Bible says, “They meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.” Who could have imagined that God would transform the following three attacks on the unborn into a blessing for the pro-life movement?

Fake news media faces a lawsuit for false reporting which caused the high-tech lynching of the Covington Catholic high school students who attended the 2019 March for Life. New York legislators gave a standing ovation to killing babies on the date of birth. The governor of Virginia sought to legalize killing babies after birth. These three attacks have made Americans more aware of Democrats’ culture of death and war on the unborn. Abortion is front and center on the international political stage.

Since the Roe v Wade abortion-on-demand decision in 1973, 60 million babies have been killed. Pro-lifers are passionately energized to challenge Roe. Praise God!
