Is Mayor Pete a Dangerous Security Risk?

By: Cliff Kincaid

Facing a serious health problem but with millions of Americans praying for him, Rush Limbaugh has demonstrated that he is still in the game, as he declared the other day on his radio show that “America’s still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage president.” He was referring to Pete Buttigieg, the clean-cut Harvard grad who smoked pot in college, turned gay, married another man in church, and leads a small town in Indiana.

Out of nowhere, he has emerged on the national scene as a potential president – the first openly gay president. Buttigieg won in Iowa and came in second in New Hampshire. He has many of Barack Hussein Obama’s donors.

Injecting a note of common sense into this picture, Limbaugh summarized the attitude of many Americans by saying, “…they’re looking at Mayor Pete — a 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage — and they’re saying, ‘Okay. How’s this gonna look, a 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man, Donald Trump? What’s gonna happen there?’”

Limbaugh has a knack for saying things that tens of millions of Americans think. This has nothing to do with one’s “sexual orientation.” Most people are tired of the homosexual agenda being forced on America. They don’t want to see two men kissing, on a presidential debate stage and especially not in the Oval Office.

But there is something else that figures into the equation. Buttigieg says the HIV/AIDS epidemic “disproportionately” affects gay men, ignoring the scientific evidence that their dangerous sexual practices dramatically increase the odds of getting sick and dying from AIDS and other diseases.

With this possible health care problem lurking in the background of Buttigieg’s candidacy, President Trump said he would have no problem voting for a gay president. Trump can’t “figure out what to do with me,” Buttigieg says.

Limbaugh is not speechless, however. He understands that Americans are tolerant people who don’t want their children exposed to lifestyles that are dangerous. This fact about homosexuality is reflected in Trump’s own 2021 budget, calling for $716 million for the second year of a multiyear initiative to eliminate HIV in America, a $450 million increase compared to the 2020 enacted level. ​Male homosexuals are at the greatest risk of getting HIV/AIDS because of the way they have sexual relations.

In addition to HIV/AIDS, new data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) demonstrates that gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are at increased risk for extragenital sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia or gonorrhea in the throat or rectum.

By any objective measure, syphilis, HIV, and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) make the coronavirus look relatively minor.  The CDC estimates that more than 20 million new STDs occur annually in the United States, contributing to 110 million cases. Our media are careful not to recommend any lifestyle choices that would make getting these diseases less likely. They won’t warn against the dangerous sexual practices outlined in the book The Health Hazards of Homosexuality.

In an article about the dangers of STDs, an epidemiologist for the U.S. Army Public Health Command noted in an article that “Social ‘hook up’ networks and mobile applications allow for easy ways to meet new people, but it’s not always safe and can lead to high-risk activities.” In the case of Buttigieg, who met his “husband” on one of those “mobile applications,” the danger takes on national security concerns. One such dating app, Grindr, is owned by a Communist Chinese firm. The Reuters news agency reported that the Chinese owners “gave some Beijing-based engineers access to personal information of millions of Americans such as private messages and HIV status, according to eight former employees, prompting U.S. officials to ask it to sell the dating app for the gay community.”

Buttigieg says he didn’t meet his “husband” on Grindr but on another app. Asked by a gay magazine, “If it was Grindr, would you tell me?” He replied, “Probably not. But it was Hinge.” This is described as the dating app designed to be deleted. In any case, it looks like secrets were shared. But who had access to them?

It looks like much damage has already been done through the acquisition of sensitive files on self-proclaimed gay, bi, trans, and queer people through Grindr – and perhaps other apps. It was Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan who conceived a “CIA Diversity and Inclusion Strategy” to hire “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Individuals.” Buttigieg says he was a Naval Intelligence Officer who served in Afghanistan. But some of his military service documents are said to be “redacted.”

Questions about Mayor Pete’s personal lifestyle — and demands for the complete release of his military and medical records — are in order. Limbaugh has only touched the surface of a blockbuster issue for Mayor Pete. He is a presumed security risk who must prove that his sensitive personal data has not already fallen into the hands of the Chinese communists or Russian intelligence services.

The Revolution Will Be Subsidized by Bloomberg

By: Cliff Kincaid

The apparent disagreements among the “centrist” and “radical” Democratic presidential candidates are not significant or substantial. In the end, they will unite and depend on Mike Bloomberg’s billions of dollars to take down President Trump. Mr. “Stop-and-Frisk” has already pledged $2 billion or more to do so. This makes Trump beatable.

If you don’t think money matters, look at Bloomberg’s rise in the polls based on millions of dollars of commercials alone.

Bloomberg is not a socialist but a technocrat prepared to usher in a socialist state. He wants to bring “Stop-and-Frisk” to all of us, on a nationwide basis. This means getting shoved up against a wall and losing our economic, political, and personal freedoms.

For his part, Bernie Sanders objects to Bloomberg buying an election. But he is referring to Bloomberg taking the Democratic presidential nomination away from him. You can bet that Bernie will not object to Bloomberg and/or George Soros buying the White House for the Democratic Party and its eventual nominee by running hundreds of millions of dollars of negative ads against Trump. These can make the difference.

At the current time, according to the publication Axios, “Amid record-high stock markets and record-low joblessness, Trump trails almost every 2020 Democrat nationally, and is in a statistical tie in swing-state polls.” This means that Trump needs every vote he can get.

In this context, there are growing numbers of people inclined to vote for Trump who are very concerned about the forces of Cultural Marxism. Also known as political correctness, Cultural Marxism is a societal sickness that permeates the media and which even includes such spectacles as a half-time NFL Super Bowl show featuring scantily clad pole dancers. This moral meltdown is just as much of a threat to America’s future as an economic collapse.

Opposition to this Marxist cultural agenda is what caused many traditional Democratic voters, especially from the working class, to vote for Trump. They are sick of the sexual minorities and hedonists dictating how we are supposed to think and act. They would like to return to the days when kids are raised by moms and dads to be boys and girls.

We witnessed these insidious forces in action on Tuesday when national media featured the news that a famous NBA basketball star declared that he has accepted his 12-year-old boy as a girl. The announcement first came on the television show hosted by popular entertainer Ellen DeGeneres, a lesbian who has been “married” to another woman. The NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt featured a long segment on this development, presenting the parents as enlightened people with the best interests of their “transgender” son/daughter at heart. An expert called it a “teaching moment” for the nation.

You are supposed to accept homosexual/transgender rights and abortion rights while embracing the legalization of mind-altering marijuana and giving up your gun rights. This lunacy is Cultural Marxism today.   Bloomberg’s billions can bring it about.

Historically, Cultural Marxism originated with an Italian communist named Antonio Gramsci, who devised ways for Marxism to infiltrate and subvert Western culture, especially traditional Christian values. Various books, such as The Open Marxism of Antonio Gramsci, explain this strategy in detail. The book is a collection of Gramsci essays translated by Carl Marzani, a publisher and Soviet KGB agent whose publishing house was subsidized by the KGB. He introduced Gramsci’s writings to the United States in the mid-1950s.

It just so happens that Pete Buttigieg’s father was a Gramsci scholar.

At this critical juncture, author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon’s forthcoming book, White House Reds: Communists, Socialists & Security Risks Running for US President, 2020, examines the backgrounds of Buttigieg and the other Democratic Party candidates in detail. He notes, “Presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders are currently fierce rivals in the race for the Democratic party nomination. However, not so many years ago Bernie Sanders was Pete Buttigieg’s ‘socialist’ hero.” He cites an essay the teenage Pete Buttigieg wrote in 2000 for the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum’s annual “Profiles in Courage” essay Competition.

Loudon comments, “In his essay the teenage Pete Buttigieg showed a good understanding of American politics and of the socialist project. No doubt aided by many conversations with his Marxist father around the dinner table.”

Loudon notes, “Both Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders have a long association with the small ‘c’ communists of Democratic Socialists of America. Pete Buttigieg worked closely with local Marxists while serving as Mayor of South Bend Indiana. How then, can Pete Buttigieg claim to be the ‘moderate’ in the race?” Loudon’s important book, now available for pre-order, exposes Pete’s links to the “South Bend socialists” and other anti-American and anti-Israel causes.

In another significant development, Buttigieg, a pothead at Harvard, has emerged as an advocate of decriminalizing drugs such as heroin and LSD.

His campaign is a prime example of how Cultural Marxism distorts our understanding of what’s happening politically. We are constantly told he is a “centrist” or “moderate.”  These are lies. Loudon documents how all of the Democratic presidential candidates are security risks based on various degrees of Marxist associations and loony left skeletons in their closets.

It really doesn’t matter if Bernie or Pete gets the nomination because they both have a deep understanding of how the forces that Gramsci wrote about are coalescing in the Democratic Party and attempting to complete the job that Barack Hussein Obama started. They can’t be underestimated, especially because of the billions of dollars backing them.

Keep in mind that Bloomberg is not just an isolated billionaire. He is a member of such high-level organizations as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission. (His firm is a corporate member of the CFR). His website advertises his speech at the “One Planet Summit,” co-hosted by the United Nations, on the need to restructure global financial architecture, in the name of stopping climate change, and deindustrializing America.

In an authoritarian display, the 20,000 employees in his media business have been prohibited from writing a negative word about his candidacy.

Looking at the presidential race and the current popular figures, Trevor Loudon asks, “Is Pete Buttigieg rally just a well-meaning liberal Democrat who just wants the best for America? Or is he his father’s son? Is he actually a ‘stealth socialist’ who has honed the art of appearing to be whatever he needs to be to further his cause in any given situation?”

For his part, Buttigieg says, “I don’t think Trump can figure out what to do with me.” It’s not only because Mayor Pete is a closet socialist but an open gay.

This is a conundrum because Trump was pictured during the 2016 campaign holding up a rainbow flag inscribed with the phrase “LGBT for Trump.” To the dismay of his conservative supporters, he has followed through, as the Trump Administration is leading a pro-gay global diplomacy effort through the U.N. that is led by Trump’s gay Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell. Christian nations are being told by this “conservative” Administration that they have to legalize and celebrate the homosexual lifestyle.

If he doesn’t forcefully challenge the homosexual cabal eating away the moral fabric of the nation, Trump will make himself vulnerable to defeat in the 2020 election. It is his potential Achilles heel. He has to abandon the LGBT movement for the sake of the nation and his own re-election.

Globalists Panic as Trump Survives and Virus Spreads

By: Cliff Kincaid

In the span of just one week, at the Davos World Economic Forum, two globalists sounded the alarm about President Trump’s America, declaring we are living in “revolutionary” times. This means another panic has set in, as Bolshevik Bernie is positioned to capture the Democratic presidential nomination and go down to another defeat, in much the same way that socialist Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign imploded in Britain.

First, the future King of England, Prince Charles, said at Davos, in order to combat “climate change” and move forward, “we need nothing short of a paradigm shift, one that inspires action at revolutionary levels and pace.” Then, atheist billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros took the stage at Davos, declaring war on President Trump and claiming we are living in a “revolutionary moment.”

This is not just talk. Soros is known as the hedge fund operator who broke the Bank of England through currency manipulation and short-selling. He makes money by undermining national economies, causing dislocation and human suffering. He is a fan of the European Union and told Davos that Boris Johnson’s victory in Britain in the Brexit election was a “crushing defeat” for the globalists.  He also took aim at nationalists Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil and Matteo Salvini in Italy.

Charles and Soros sounded like revolutionaries in a state of panic over plans for their New World Order. Of course, we are now witnessing the emergence of another infectious disease, a new Coronavirus, which originated in China and may have passed from animals to humans. In addition to the spread of the disease and the possibility of hundreds or thousands of deaths, financial and oil markets are threatened. Airlines and travel stocks are falling. This may just be the crisis the globalists need.

This comes as America’s first Marxist president, Barack Hussein Obama, is reportedly concerned that Bernie has not hidden his Marxist side well enough and has been far too open about his own authoritarian, or totalitarian, plans for America. They fear that after Trump survives impeachment, he may be, in the words of Vice President Mike Pence, “unstoppable.” Sanders is perceived as easy pickings for the Trump machine.

Obama was much smarter than Sanders. He counted on his friends in the media to conceal his involvement with the Democratic Socialists of America and a top operative of the Communist Party, Frank Marshall Davis.  But Sanders doesn’t have many friends in the media. Fearful of losing to Trump, the Democratic establishment, including CNN, has mobilized against Sanders. Groups representing Sanders and Elizabeth Warren issued a statement declaring that “The progressive movement has the chance of a lifetime to defeat Donald Trump and elect a truly transformational progressive President of the United States, but it won’t happen if we fight each other instead of working together to win.”

Nevertheless, pressure is mounting on Warren to pull out. Her latest embarrassment came when a father who saved his money to put his daughter through college without debt wondered why he should be punished for his thrift under Warren’s debt-relief plan for deadbeats.

If Sanders’ candidacy is not derailed and the Democrats are stuck with him, another strategy may be used – economic disruption. In his Davos speech, Soros even suggested an economic crash is coming, saying, “…an overheated economy can’t be kept boiling for too long. If all this had happened closer to the elections, it would have assured his [Trump’s] reelection. His problem is that the elections are still 10 months away and in a revolutionary situation, that is a lifetime.”

The implication is that certain forces operating throughout the world, some perhaps in mysterious and unregulated hedge funds, could intervene to crash the economy, jeopardizing Trump’s victory.

The Marxists used to be the experts in exploiting human suffering for the purposes of sparking revolution. But hedge funds can do far better than the Marxists. There is money to be made when the world economy takes a downturn.

On the offensive, Trump used his Davos speech to call his critics the “perennial prophets of doom” and “foolish fortune-tellers,” noting their record of phony predictions: “They predicted an overpopulation crisis in the 1960s, mass starvation in the ’70s, and an end of oil in the 1990s.  These alarmists always demand the same thing: absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives.”

Their “climate action” plan now depends on a mystical sense of nature being sacred and somehow under the control of man (and a global super-state) through Green New Deal-type schemes. In many ways, it is a return to paganism and a primitive style of living.

Joan Veon’s book, Prince Charles: The Sustainable Prince, notes that he was greatly influenced by the South African-born mystic Laurens van der Post, later exposed as a liar, fraud, and pedophile.

Veon also says Charles was a convert to James Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis, a belief based on the Greek goddess Gaia, the Earth Mother. One chapter of Al Gore’s book, Earth in the Balance, writes sympathetically about the pagan tradition of worshipping a goddess of the earth and complains that Christianity wiped out this tradition.

According to these elites, there are too many of us, and we have too much economic and political freedom to improve our lives and our standard of living. Capitalism and Christianity are incompatible with their New World Order.

Interestingly, one version of the global warming (now climate change) theory originated with marijuana advocate Carl Sagan, who was also an astronomer. Before he came to believe the Earth was inhabited by a spirit called Gaia, Sagan was writing about the virtues of dope and “the cannabis experience.” He explained, “I do not consider myself a religious person in the usual sense, but there is a religious aspect to some highs. The heightened sensitivity in all areas gives me a feeling of communion with my surroundings, both animate and inanimate.”

The U.N.’s Environmental Sabbath program advised kids to hold hands around a tree and meditate. The purpose, through dope or meditation, is to become “one” with trees, rocks, and dirt.

Elites like Prince Charles can be viewed as fools or worse, but it’s clear that Soros, with his hold on the Democratic Party and tens of billions to spend, is serious. His associates in the Council on Foreign Relations have made clear their intentions, for the new issue of their journal Foreign Affairs is out, with a lead article, “The Twilight of America’s Financial Empire,” objecting to how the United States uses financial power for the benefit of America. The January/February 2020 issue is devoted to “Global Capitalism” and one gets the impression that the elites are hoping for a crash, in order to take America down a notch or two (and undermine the Trump economy).

Another article, “The Starving State,” which is subtitled, “Why Capitalism’s Salvation Depends on Taxation,” represents another desperate attempt to destroy economic growth with higher and higher rates of taxation. Co-author Joseph Stiglitz is an adviser to the Democratic Party and was an adviser to the ill-fated Jeremy Corbyn campaign in Britain. Stiglitz, an advocate of nationalizing U.S. banks, is a member of the Socialist International Commission on Global Financial Issues. He wrote the book, Making Globalization Work, in which he argues for a variety of global tax schemes that would cost American taxpayers billions of dollars.

Trump is their enemy because he stands in the way of their global socialist model.

The Impeachment Trial: Getting Trump (and the Clintons) Off the Hook

By: Cliff Kincaid

In one of the biggest blunders of the Trump presidency, it has been decided that two of Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyers should be on the team defending President Trump against impeachment. This time, the anti-Trump headlines can’t be blamed on liberal media bias.  “Alan Dershowitz, marred by ties to Jeffrey Epstein, will defend Trump at impeachment trial” was the Los Angeles Times headline.

Dershowitz, who is knowledgeable and media-savvy, is a Harvard Law Professor Emeritus. The Washington Post noted that he is a friend and supporter of Bill and Hillary Clinton who voted for her in 2016 and even contributed money to her campaign. He voted for Barack Hussein Obama twice before turning on him over his treatment of Israel. A more complete analysis of his donations, according to OpenSecrets.org, reveals thousands of dollars over the years to mostly Democratic Party candidates such as Ted Kennedy, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and Al Franken.

There is no doubt that Trump has an excellent case to make against impeachment and that the Senate won’t convict him. The strange part of the story is why his defense team not only includes liberal Democrat Dershowitz but the “Republican” lawyer who botched the impeachment case against Bill Clinton, Kenneth Starr. He is a Fox News contributor who served as Independent Counsel investigating the Clintons from 1994 to 1999. He failed to pursue the most serious charges, including a cover-up surrounding the 1993 death of Deputy White House counsel Vincent Foster.

Strangely, both defended billionaire pedophile Epstein, a high-level friend of the rich and powerful whose alleged suicide in prison has been openly questioned and even ridiculed.  Asked why he defended Epstein, Starr replied, “I was very happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.” The comments were made after a 2015 National Press Club event on “the future of higher education and the calling of faith-based institutions.”

Starr served as president of Baylor University, a private Christian University, only to be fired for allegedly ignoring sexual assault issues on campus. Some stories refer to him as the “disgraced” former Baylor University president. But none of that bothered Fox News, which hired him as a legal analyst.

As Independent Counsel, Starr nailed Clinton on lying about his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. But he and his successor as Independent Counsel, Robert Ray, failed to bring charges against the Clintons on other more serious scandals. Ray, who changed his voter registration from Democrat to independent before taking the job, claimed that he didn’t have enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.

Ray, who is also on the Trump impeachment defense team, rubber-stamped Starr’s conclusion, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that White House deputy counsel Vince Foster committed suicide where his body was found in Ft. Marcy Park. In Travelgate, he failed to hold Hillary Clinton responsible for ordering the unjustified firing of seven career White House travel office employees with unblemished reputations. Billy Dale, head of the travel office, commented, “I am disappointed by Robert Ray’s decision to not prosecute Hillary Clinton and others in the Travelgate affair. Bill and Hillary Clinton tried to have me thrown in jail to cover up their corrupt efforts to give the Travel Office’s business to their friends. Unsurprisingly, a jury found me innocent of all of Hillary Clinton’s charges in record time.”

In Filegate, the Clintons were not held accountable for the improper acquisition of more than nine hundred FBI files, mostly on Republicans of previous administrations.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch commented at the time, “Judicial Watch has serious differences with Independent Counsel Ray, who should have indicted Mrs. Clinton and others in both Travelgate and Filegate.”

Foster researcher Hugh Turley comments on the curious developments in the Trump impeachment case, as lawyers who failed to hold the Clintons accountable for serious wrong-doing are now supposed to be defending Trump. He notes, “Robert Ray, who replaced Starr as Independent Counsel, is also on the Trump team. Starr was also on the Jeffrey Epstein defense team.   And Dershowitz, another member of Trump’s defense, was associated with Epstein. As you know, Bill Clinton was linked to Epstein. Starr only appeared to be Clinton’s enemy while he actually covered up the murder of Vince Foster.”

This sounds like a “conspiracy theory” to those who have not bothered to investigate the curious circumstances surrounding Foster’s demise. But Turley, with John H. Clarke and Patrick Knowlton, co-authored the final 20 pages of Ken Starr’s report on Foster’s death. The U.S. Court of Appeals that appointed Starr as Independent Counsel ordered Starr, over his objection, to include their analysis in his report. That analysis, on their website, www.FBIcover-up.com, contradicts Starr’s suicide-in-the-park finding.

Foster, like Epstein, was the man who knew too much.

As we note in our special report, The Deep State Wears Black Robes, “He [Foster] had knowledge of various Clinton scandals, including Travelgate, the Waco tragedy, and possibly some illegal activities involving national security. His secretary testified he had access to mysterious binders associated with the NSA, the agency that conducts mass surveillance, ostensibly for the purpose of monitoring terrorists and foreign agents.”

Accuracy in Media founder Reed Irvine and I wrote at the time that while President Clinton was charged by Starr with perjury and obstruction of justice surrounding a sex scandal, there were much greater abuses of power and illegal activity for which he should have been removed from office. We were voices in the wilderness.

It’s mighty suspicious that Trump has been maneuvered into hiring people who either voted for Hillary or failed to hold her and her husband responsible for serious misdeeds. It not only looks bad but suggests that defending Trump may be useful to some in preventing the president from getting to the bottom of the Clinton scandals. After all, such an investigation could lead back to Trump’s attorneys.

A Narco-Nation of Potheads, Courtesy of George Soros

By: Cliff Kincaid

Billionaire George Soros was named “Philanthropist of the Year” by Inside Philanthropy magazine for his “…fight for academic freedom in Central Europe, and his resistance to the rising tide of authoritarianism worldwide.”  The former is a reference to gender studies programs and the latter concerns his ongoing campaign to undermine existing governments, causing chaos that makes more money for hedge fund currency manipulators and short-sellers like himself.

In the United States, he is best known for almost single-handedly creating a narco-nation through the legalization of marijuana, causing human suffering and environmental devastation on a scale most people do not yet comprehend.

With the nation focused on the opioid danger, and President Trump accusing China of pumping fentanyl into the veins of American victims through Mexico, the marijuana problem has gotten less attention. Indeed, liberal politicians and prosecutors, some of them getting Soros money, are treating the dope as a harmless substance and even a money-maker for local and state governments.

For one of the most sensational examples of a notorious pothead, consider Aaron Hernandez, the former NFL star who became a convicted killer and then killed himself in prison. The subject of a new Netflix series, “Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez,” he was a chronic marijuana user throughout college and his NFL career who experienced brain damage from the drug. The case proves a direct link between marijuana, mental illness, and violence.

In California, legal dope was supposed to displace illegal dope. But illicit cannabis cultivation sites are proliferating, offering a cheaper product than the government-approved variety. The Siskiyou County (California) Board of Supervisors voted on a new Declaration of Local Emergency that refers to illegal growers being responsible for “hundreds of pervasive fire hazards, insecticides, pesticides, rodenticides, fertilizers, trash, and unsanitary conditions which severely impact health, safety, and quality of life for countless county residents…”

It’s in Barack Hussein Obama’s state of Illinois that we see some of the recent damage being done.

Illinois last year became the first state to legalize the marijuana business through legislation rather than by referendum and placing excise and sales taxes on the “product.” We can already see the predictable result — marijuana-related emergency room visits are on the rise. The local ABC-TV station in Chicago quotes doctors as saying the most common symptoms of the new potheads in Illinois are restlessness, heart palpitations and anxiety, but that “In some cases, we are seeing full-on psychosis, agitation, hallucinations.”

Incredibly, Illinois Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton was one of the first in line to purchase the dope. She bought clementine-flavored marijuana edible gummies and paid with cash. The scene was captured by CNN as she was pictured among hundreds of early-morning customers at a Chicago marijuana dispensary.  She probably went to the front of the line, but some people waited hours in order to buy their “recreational marijuana” and get “high.”

David E. Smith of the Illinois Family Institute comments, “Not only have lawmakers failed to do their due diligence before passing this marijuana law, but they also failed to heed the compelling research that indicates how regular use of marijuana affects young people, including an increased risk of psychiatric illnesses and a permanent loss of IQ points.”

In fact, this is the plan – dumb people down so they ruin their lives and then have to be dependent on the state for the rest of their lives. The potheads are fast becoming an important new constituency for the socialist-minded.

Before they actually navigate their way to the polls, they can relieve their pain by employing another “hemp” product – CBD or cannabidiol.  CBD is being hawked all over, even on the Rush Limbaugh Show, and is being advertised as a treatment for “muscle soreness” and “everyday discomfort.” But many complaints have been filed with the FDA over the false medical claims made about CBD.

Dr. Kenneth Finn comments, “These products are everywhere, but there is little scientific evidence to support the hype that surrounds them.” He says unregulated CBD products hitting the market might be contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, insecticides, molds, E. coli, or fungus.

Official dope distribution is supposed to fill a financial gap. In Illinois, the sixth-biggest state, by population, Politico reporter Theodoric Meyer reports that it has seen its credit rating cut to near-junk status in the decade since the financial crisis. “Its bonds are now considered as risky as those of Russia and Romania,” he notes. “Its pension system is in worse shape than that of almost any other state.”

Writers Ted Dabrowski and John Klingner note that the population of Illinois dropped by 100,000 people between 2010 and 2018 and few of the state’s counties have been spared. “That means that 93 of the state’s 102 counties have shrunk since 2010,” they note. Adam Schuster, Director of Budget and Tax Research at the group, Illinois Policy, reports that 36 percent of the money the state allocates to education will be diverted away from teachers and students to meet required pension payments for retirees.

Former Illinois pension chief Marc Levine is quoted as saying a federal bailout may be required, making this a matter affecting all taxpayers, not just the saps remaining in Illinois.

The “progressive” politicians have virtually bankrupted the state, forcing thousands to flee, and have turned to the cruel exploitation of potheads as a sure-fire money-maker to stave off the final countdown to fiscal oblivion. But legalized dope means more wards of the state who need government help.

Now, this is going national. “Once a politically dangerous subject,” notes Trevor Hughes of USA Today, “legal marijuana has become something of a de facto platform plank for the 2020 Democratic candidates: All support either legalizing or decriminalizing its use, and the differences lie in how far the candidates are willing to take it.”

Since 22.2 million people have used marijuana in the past month, this is fertile ground for votes. In a bid for votes, candidate Pete Buttigieg actually toured a “cannabis dispensary” in Las Vegas while commenting that he smoked dope a “handful of times a long time ago.”

President Trump, on the other hand, can just say no. He lost his brother to alcoholism and should consider speaking out against the Soros-funded marijuana craze before more lives are ruined and lost. His Surgeon General, Vice Adm. Jerome M. Adams, is already speaking out about the health risks of marijuana use. He needs the backing of his president.

Roger Morgan, author of Soros: The Drug Lord. Pricking the Bubble of American Supremacy notes the elevated levels of mental illness, addiction, suicides, traffic deaths and the unseen mental and physical defects to babies and future generations from the use of marijuana and other mind-altering drugs.  He adds, “America can never be great again if a major percentage of its young people are brain-damaged, mentally ill, addicted or dead.”​

Can Hedge Funds Topple Trump?

By: Cliff Kincaid

President Donald J. Trump has a good conservative record, especially in regard to the courts, and he has strengthened the Armed Forces. His rallies are packed with supporters. But as we enter 2020, even some conservative Republicans in Congress seem scared to death. Debt is piling up and the Federal Reserve is propping up the economy through emergency loans. Some are asking: can hedge funds crash the economy?

George Soros isn’t the only donor to the Democratic Party who ran a hedge fund. A Democratic presidential candidate, San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer, is a hedge fund manager who reportedly ran an offshore company advertised as a tax shelter.  One of the Democratic Party’s top donors, his fund invested in fossil fuel projects but he is now running on the dangers of “climate change” caused by fossil fuels.

Hedge funds can cause an economic downturn by targeting companies, countries, and currencies with short selling strategies.

With the debt and deficits high, such a threat is real. Conservative Republican Rep. Chip Roy refused to vote for the new $1.4 trillion spending bill, a “compromise” with House Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats, saying, “This bill borrows, and it borrows at a time when we can’t afford to borrow another penny. Our nation is $23 trillion in debt, now racking up more than $100 million of debt per hour.”

As part of the deal with the Democrats, Trump agreed to demands for paid maternity and family leave for 2.1 million federal workers, and his daughter Ivanka is pushing a similar nanny-state program for the nation as a whole, which could cost hundreds of billions of dollars. The Eagle Forum group founded by the late Phyllis Schlafly, a Trump supporter, called these plans a form of federal baby-sitting.

Always eager to up the ante, we can expect liberal politicians to propose legislation to guarantee paid vacations and holidays, in addition to debt relief and student loan forgiveness.

“In many ways,” says Frank Lasée, President of the Heartland Institute, “America is at a crossroads. Will our nation embrace a European-style welfare state, complete with cradle-to-grave entitlements and the taxes that go with them? Or will Americans demand more freedom in the form of fewer taxes, more school choice, and less oversight from Washington, D.C. bureaucrats? I am hopeful the latter will triumph.”

He cites the dangers in the Green New Deal and the Medicare for All plans. Another danger was documented in the book Wizards of Wall Street by businessman Zubi Diamond. An African immigrant who came to America and became a successful businessman, Diamond says that George Soros and other hedge fund short sellers can undermine nations, their economies and currencies, and the global financial system as a whole.

While Trump recognizes the socialist menace, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimates that since his inauguration in January of 2017, Trump has signed legislation into law that will ultimately add $4.1 trillion to the national debt from 2017 to 2029. Setting a record, the Department of the Treasury reports that the federal government spent a record $1,163,090,000,000 in the first three months of fiscal 2020.

Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve is intervening with tens of billions of dollars in bailouts in an “interbank lending liquidity crisis.” Is this traceable to hedge fund speculators and currency manipulators betting behind-the-scenes on the decline of the U.S. economy?

To stave off this possibility, Trump has signed a “phase-one” trade deal with Communist China, promising relief for America’s farmers and manufacturers. In addition, the Trump Administration is preparing a new tax cut proposal.

In another move, Trump bowed to Pelosi and Big Labor in securing passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade by inserting pro-United Nations elements into the pact. As a result, the USMCA establishes a regional North American bureaucracy, under the auspices of the U.N.’s International Labor Organization, to manipulate and enforce labor standards between the three countries.  The deal undermines Trump’s proclaimed opposition to globalism and enables the Democrats to claim they improved the agreement to benefit workers.

The good news is that Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) has reintroduced his bill, H.R. 204, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act, to halt all involvement of the United States with the United Nations. Trump could endorse the bill and rally conservatives behind it.

While the economy is strong, Trump’s social and cultural agenda has achieved mixed results.

On abortion, Trump has pleased conservative Christians. During the campaign Trump posted an eloquent 600-word statement that notes that he did not always hold the pro-life position, “but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me.” He previously had said that “what happened is friends of mine years ago were going to have a child, and it was going to be aborted. And it wasn’t aborted. And that child today is a total superstar, a great, great child.”

This kind of conversion is desperately needed on homosexual rights. Trump Ambassador Richard Grenell led an embarrassing effort at the U.N. to force Christian nations into accepting homosexual rights.  It’s only a matter of time before conservative Christians take note of what Grenell is doing in the name of Trump. They won’t be happy.

At the same time, many members of the old “Just Say No” anti-drug Reagan coalition are increasingly frustrated by the Trump Administration’s failure to take action against Big Marijuana and the phony claims from the related “hemp” industry about the supposed medical benefits of CBD.

A petition asks Senator Mike Crapo, chairman of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, to continue his valiant effort to stop the marijuana industry from getting access to the national banking system in order to launder its profits.

With the “progressives” taking advantage of every opportunity to broaden their anti-Trump coalition, including through an orchestrated impeachment campaign, the Trump Administration has some golden opportunities to reassemble powerful elements of the old Reagan Coalition.

From the perspective of the Trump campaign, a possible economic downturn, brought on by hedge fund short-sellers, should make expanding the base a matter of utmost urgency.

Another CIA Face for Anti-Trump Resistance

By: Cliff Kincaid

A so-called “former CIA analyst” is leading House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s effort to stop President Trump from taking further military action against Iran’s top terrorist leaders. Her name is Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) and she says that she “participated in countless conversations on how to respond to Qassem Soleimani’s violent campaigns across the region.” In other words, she’s all talk, no action.

Now that Trump has acted, authorizing the killing of this terror master, the Pelosi argument is that Trump must be stopped and Iran’s other top terrorist leaders must be saved, so they can scheme against America in comfort and security. Slotkin is the CIA face for this effort. Pelosi is counting on people to think the title “CIA analyst” carries some credibility.

This is a twofer for Pelosi. A CIA analyst sparked impeachment, and another CIA analyst will now save Iran from Trump.

Pelosi has announced that a War Powers Resolution in the House to tie Trump’s hands will be led by Congresswoman Slotkin, whose bio says, “She was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to be a Middle East analyst and went on to devote her career to protecting the United States from national security threats. In her role at the CIA, Rep. Slotkin worked alongside the U.S. military during three tours in Iraq as a militia expert.”

Being an analyst and actually protecting the U.S. from national security threats are two different things. Iraq was liberated by American troops but the Bush and Obama Administrations looked the other way as Shia Iran expanded into Iraq and took control. That, in turn, sparked the creation of ISIS, a Sunni group and al Qaeda off-shoot. That is what got us into the current mess. It’s another problem inherited by Trump. He took care of ISIS. Now Iran is the main problem.

Regarding Soleimani (also spelled Suleimani), Slotkin seems to understand what has happened. Her Twitter account declares, “I watched friends and colleagues get hurt or killed by Iranian rockets, mortars and explosive devices that were provided to Iraqi proxies and used against U.S. forces under Soleimani’s guidance. We watched as his power increased and he brought strength and capability to groups in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, and to smaller cells around the Middle East and the world, with devastating consequences.”

The operative term is “watched.” Suleimani traveled throughout the region, flying in and out of international airports, and the CIA watched. It looks like Trump finally acted on the intelligence that the CIA or some other agency had provided about his whereabouts. Until Trump, our other leaders just “watched.”

This Iranian carried the title of “General” but he was really just a terrorist kingpin, no different than the thugs who run Mexican drug cartels and murder anyone who gets in their way. He answered to the Iranian Ayatollah, the phony man of God whose religious regime took over the country when the pathetic President Jimmy Carter abandoned the pro-Western Shah of Iran.

Slotkin said, “If you worked on the Middle East over the past 20 years, you dealt with the growing organization and sophistication of Soleimani’s covert and overt military activities, which have contributed to significant destabilization across the region.”

What she is saying is that CIA paper-pushers and scribblers have been watching this develop for 20 years and the threat has grown to the point where Iraq has been lost to Iran and the entire region has been destabilized.  Along the way the Bush and Barack Hussein Obama Administrations did nothing about Iran’s growing power and influence, making the one-time “liberation” of Iraq into another debacle that cost our nation trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.

It has been one intelligence and policy failure on top of another.

Of course, the problem was exacerbated by Obama’s official policy of giving the Iranians billions of dollars and lifting sanctions, allowing the regime precious time to develop a nuclear weapon. Trump reversed all of this.

In the words of former Obama CIA Director David Petraeus, “Suleimani was the architect and operational commander of the Iranian effort to solidify control of the so-called Shia crescent, stretching from Iran to Iraq through Syria into southern Lebanon. He is responsible for providing explosives, projectiles, and arms and other munitions that killed well over 600 American soldiers and many more of our coalition and Iraqi partners just in Iraq, as well as in many other countries such as Syria.”

Until Trump acted, Slotkin added, “What always kept both Democratic and Republican presidents from targeting Soleimani himself was the simple question: Was the strike worth the likely retaliation, and the potential to pull us into protracted conflict?” This was the rationale for more watching and doing nothing.

Let’s understand that Iran is waging a war on American troops and the people in the region and America’s leaders did nothing about the architect of that mayhem until Trump. And because American leaders did nothing, the media now echo the cries of analysts that Iran is too powerful to do anything about and that we can still do nothing because they promise to hit us. All we can do is wait for the development of an Iranian nuclear bomb.

This is the kind of CIA “analysis” that makes an objective observer wonder if the agency is worth saving. Perhaps we need intelligence agencies that act to protect Americans rather than sit back and watch.

Fortunately, America has a friend in the Middle East called Israel and this nation understands the threat far better than Slotkin and her fellow CIA analysts because its own survival is at stake. The threat grows day by day. Senior Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards commander Gholamali Abuhamzeh says that “Some 35 U.S. targets in the region, as well as Tel Aviv, are within our reach.”

With Slotkin and the House of Representatives threatening to tie Trump’s hands, it’s time for Israel to take the lead. Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution won’t apply to Israel.

Israel Should Get Ready to Obliterate Tehran

By: Cliff Kincaid

Obama’s CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus told Foreign Policy magazine that Iranian general and top terrorist leader Qassem Suleimani was “responsible for providing explosives, projectiles, and arms and other munitions that killed well over 600 American soldiers and many more of our coalition and Iraqi partners just in Iraq, as well as in many other countries such as Syria.” So why did it take so long for the U.S. to kill him?

We are seeing stories about how Iran may retaliate against America over his death. But why did Obama fail to retaliate over the deaths his own CIA director has documented?

Once again, our media have assumed a knee-jerk posture against Trump, blaming him for taking long-overdue action. He inherited the problem of Iran. Obama’s pro-Muslim approach was to appease Iran and pay them off.  Trump ended that policy.

By questioning what Iran may do, our media take the side of Iran, ignoring what this fanatical religious regime has already done to hundreds of our servicemembers. In addition to the more than 600 dead cited previously, we have evidence that, on October 23, 1983, ​Iran ordered and carried out the suicide bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon, killing 241 American military personnel. The CIA got a warning about what was going to happen but failed to provide it to military authorities in time.

In short, Iran has already carried out numerous acts of war against the U.S.

But our media don’t care about the American dead. They worry about the survival of the Iranian regime as its crimes are exposed. They want the Iranians to have a nuclear bomb to counter our friend and ally Israel.

Suleimani headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. A State Department fact sheet issued in April 2019 gave a more detailed account of the deaths attributed to this organization. It said, “The Iranian regime is responsible for the deaths of at least 603 American service members in Iraq since 2003. This accounts for 17% of all deaths of U.S. personnel in Iraq from 2003 to 2011, and is in addition to the many thousands of Iraqis killed by the IRGC’s proxies.”

As we saw in the Petraeus quote cited earlier, these facts aren’t disputed. Indeed, the media know for a fact that Soleimani was a terrorist killer. They’re just upset that Trump finally took action to terminate him. They know this exposes Obama’s lack of action. So their present course is to warn of Iranian retaliation against America over something America should have done many years ago.

In a knee-jerk fashion, the left is mobilizing against Trump’s decision to kill an anti-American terrorist leader. Protests have been planned in American cities by such communist-front groups as the ANSWER Coalition, headed by veteran Marxist operative Brian Becker.

We know whose side he’s on. But his Marxist “analysis” will be repeated in a different form by the major media in the weeks and months ahead as the machinery of the United Nations will be brought to bear on the Trump Administration. Agnès Callamard, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing, has said the attack violated international human rights law. That’s right: the “human rights” of this terrorist killer of more than 600 Americans were somehow violated because he was held accountable for his crimes!

If the U.N. and its International Criminal Court had any credibility, they would have already charged and prosecuted the Iranian regime for crimes against humanity. But we know whose side they’re on.

If the U.N. persists in making this an issue, Trump should up the ante by announcing a complete and total withdrawal of the United States from the world body. The U.N. wouldn’t survive without our money. This bloated organization, with a $67.8 billion pension fund for the benefit of its own bureaucrats, should survive on its own – and somewhere else.

There is a danger of retaliation from Iran. But that’s why American taxpayers spend over $80 billion a year on 17 intelligence and law enforcement agencies. As we have seen over the last three years, some of these intelligence agencies would rather investigate Trump than protect the American people from real threats. If Americans get hit here or abroad, it’s because these agencies are not doing their job. It’s because they hire people with left-wing political agendas and waste money and resources.

Anybody who has confidence in the FBI should watch the Clint Eastwood film, “Richard Jewell,” about how the Bureau fingered the wrong man for a terrorist bombing. (Our media didn’t like the movie because it made the FBI-enablers in the media look bad.)

Tragically, with the history of intelligence failures, including 9/11, we have to accept the possibility that the Iranian regime will hit America, that the intelligence agencies will fail to protect our people, and that the media will then blame Trump.

If Iran does hit our people again, as a result of incompetence by the intelligence community, Trump should ignore the U.S. Congress and the U.N. and instead turn to his friend Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and urge the Israelis to obliterate the Iranian regime in Tehran. By promising Israel military support, Trump avoids a no-win war that would bog down America. Israel will not wage a no-win war in the region because its survival depends on total victory. That’s the better option for Trump. The left will scream but the region and the world will be better off.

Whatever the future holds, a dangerous terrorist kingpin has been eliminated from the face of the earth, and justice has been served. The world is a better place. It will be even better when Suleimani is joined in hell by his revolutionary comrades.

Let’s Win the War at Home in 2020

By: Cliff Kincaid

The year 2020 opens with a booming economy and a culture still in rapid decline. One of the leading associates of dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein says she is being protected from arrest and prosecution because she has dirt on powerful people. Epstein belonged to several influential organizations, including the Council on Foreign Relations, and rubbed elbows with such notables as Bill Gates.

In Louisiana, a Boy Scout leader was arrested on more than 500 counts of child pornography, while a married couple has been indicted on a total of 150 counts, including rape and child pornography. The wife was a school teacher and the husband was a former law enforcement official.

Meanwhile, a top education official in New York City has been arrested for trying to have sex with an underage boy.

These are just a few of the recent stories about the sickness that pervades our society.

On Capitol Hill, Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), the head of the House Armed Services Committee, said he wants to reverse President Trump’s ban on mentally-confused transgenders in the military. On the campaign trail, Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren listed millionaire Ed Buck, an accused sexual predator, on a list of her endorsers. Buck had been a donor to the campaigns of Barack Hussein Obama and Adam Schiff, now chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Profiteering from Addiction

On Thursday’s Fox Business Network, the sad spectacle of people waiting in line for up to three hours to buy legal marijuana in Illinois and get high was turned by host Charles Payne into a money-making opportunity.  The issue was buying “pot stocks.” Not one word was said about the addictive qualities of the dope and the evidence that heavy use of marijuana is linked to brain damage, mental illness, and even violence.

At a time when our society is still cleaning up the human wreckage from opioid abuse, do we really want or need a $50-billion pot industry that exploits vulnerable people?

On Glenn Beck’s show, the topic was Psychic Nikki, psychic to the stars, and her predictions for 2020. It’s really not so funny when America’s Judeo-Christian foundations have been shaken to their core by the growing acceptance of such dangerous New Age and occultic nonsense.

“There was a time when America had a firm moral foundation,” notes Devvy Kidd, in a column on “Satan’s Pimps” that is required reading. She’s correct that there was a time when the Ten Commandments were paramount to the way Americans lived their lives. That was a time when the public right to pray was protected in public schools.

Today, she points out, kids are exposed to drag queens and prostitutes – in schools and public libraries. She says Walmart, Amazon, and Target are selling books for children as young as 5 to summon demons. One book is described as just a “parody.”

In real life, two Satanic organizations are openly competing for influence, with one claiming to be more pro-abortion and pro-trans than the other, while seeking the establishment of After School Satan Clubs.

Gay Satanists

Commenting on the presidential race, Devvy Kidd notes the following of “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, who is “married” to another man.  “Mayor Petey is Satan’s pimp,” she says.

This sounds harsh because the candidate appears so likable. But how else do you describe a candidate who advertises a “lifestyle” that is banned in the Bible as an abomination and openly embraced by Satanists? “Gay people are turning to Satan,” notes one chapter of a Satanist group. This is a major trend.

With social and cultural decay all around us, encouraged by the major media, it’s no wonder socialism is being accepted by more and more people. The plan has always been to destroy the traditional family and make its members more dependent on the state.

Powerful financial forces are behind this plan. Consider that “Mayor Pete” pulled in a $24.7 million fundraising haul in the fourth quarter. That was more than Joe Biden.

Obama was labeled America’s first gay president by Newsweek, even though it was never firmly established that he was gay or bisexual. In Buttigieg, you have a real gay, one who is gay, proud, and “Christian.”

This is a major breakthrough for America on the road to Sodom and Gomorrah.

If you thought they only wanted tolerance and to be left alone, think again. You can’t really hide from it anymore. One of CNN’s openly gay anchors, Anderson Cooper, spoke about his mother and male sex organs during live coverage of New Year’s Eve in Time Square. “CNN hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen downed shots during New Year’s Eve coverage in Times Square while a reporter jumped into a bath of rum with a drag queen mermaid,” said the Daily Mail.

The American people in 2020 will be exposed on a constant basis to degenerates who think it’s funny and trendy to talk dirty and flaunt their own perverted and corrupt lifestyles.

Catching Predators

The power of the homosexual lobby is such that it has infected the Trump Administration, as Ambassadors Richard Grenell and Kelly Craft have started lecturing Christian countries and other members of the U.N. about changing laws to accommodate the needs of the George Soros-funded LGBTQ community. Some of these countries have been devastated by HIV/AIDS.

Here, with criminal justice reform letting more criminals back out on the streets, those of us who want to protect children might want to make sure there are no perverts in our own neighborhoods eager to kidnap and abuse them.

The National Sex Offender Public Website exists to help people search for the latest information from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and numerous Indian tribes. The evidence shows that 861,837 registered sex offenders are in the United States.

My search of the Maryland Sex Offenders Registry found 10 convicted sex offenders living in my zip code.

Churches Are Part of the Problem

Many churches are either AWOL about what’s happening around us or embracing the decadence.

Buttigieg wouldn’t be in this position were it not for his Episcopal Church, which ordains lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender clergy and married him and his “husband.” He left the Catholic Church, which claims to follow the Bible but which continues to tolerate a gay Mafia that escapes accountability for many of its crimes.

Still, many follow Pope Francis, who was grabbed in St. Peter’s Square by a woman who must have considered him to be like Jesus Christ. The story from the Bible says the cloak of Jesus was touched by a desperate woman in need of physical and spiritual healing. Jesus told her, “your faith has made you well; go in peace.”

By contrast, Pope Francis slapped her hand and pulled away. A religious leader who promotes an earth-centered religion and complains about capitalism, he apparently wanted her to hug a tree and meditate.

It’s not reassuring to cite moral problems and corruption by the elites, including religious leaders. But it is just as much of a war as the attacks on our embassy in Baghdad. We have to take sides and take action.

Devvy Kidd goes through the many horrors of modern America, including abortion, and we’ve just learned that there were 42 million deaths from abortion worldwide in 2019. The “mainstream media,” run by people such as Jeff Bezos of the Washington Post, who was caught in a sex scandal of his own, do not make this genocide of the unborn into an issue at all.

President Trump deserves credit for engaging in what the Center for Family & Human Rights calls “pro-life diplomacy.” But the U.S. is still mostly isolated. “In the plenary session of the [U.N.] General Assembly,” notes its report, “the U.S. received support from up to fifteen countries in 2019, a significant increase from only one in 2018.  Even so, more than 100 other countries coalesced against U.S. pro-life amendments alongside the [pro-abortion] Europeans, an increase from some eighty last year.”

The U.N. is a losing cause – except for the bureaucrats. The U.N. pension fund is now worth $67.8 billion, thanks in large part to the world body’s biggest contributor, the U.S. taxpayer.

What Trump Can Do

Trump deserves support for his pro-life campaign and effort to restore sanity to the Armed Forces on the matter of “transgenderism.”  But the misguided and even dangerous approach on homosexuality taken by the U.S. Mission to the U.N. has to be ended before more damage is done to America’s standing in the world.

While taking action on vaping, he has failed to stop the tide of drug legalization that will further corrupt the young and do absolutely nothing to end black market marijuana (which is cheaper than buying dope at the government-sanctioned stores).

With no pushback, Buttigieg is now proposing decriminalization of all drugs, including cocaine and LSD. The madness gets worse by the day.

As some “experts” tempt Trump to attack Iran and start another costly no-win war, let’s remind the president that there is a war at home that is far more important. With the right leadership, it’s winnable.

That leadership should begin with “Evangelicals for Trump,” which is holding a January 3 news conference.

The Return of the Homosexual Imperialists

By: Cliff Kincaid

It’s one thing to defend President Trump against false witness by the magazine Christianity Today. It’s another matter to rationalize or excuse how certain Trump officials are using the United Nations and the State Department to attack Christian nations.

The controversial event occurred just a few days before Christmas, when Trump’s U.S. Ambassador to Germany, longtime homosexual activist Richard Grenell, went to the United Nations to promote what he called a global initiative to force all U.N. members to approve homosexual conduct. He was joined in this demand by Trump’s U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Kelly Craft, who lectured the 69 countries which have laws making homosexuality illegal. She told them that “human dignity” requires that every country on the face of the earth embrace the practice of homosexuality.

This is the kind of homosexual imperialism that evangelical Christians objected to from the Obama Administration. Christians in foreign countries saw the attack as unwarranted interference in their internal affairs and subversion of Biblical values.

The event featuring Grenell and Craft was hosted by the U.S. Mission to the U.N. and included a representative of the Harvey Milk Foundation, named for the first openly gay politician in California.

The George Soros-funded Open Society Foundations began a major global campaign to promote homosexuality in 2009, under the name of the “New Beginning” initiative, and it continues through “Funders for LGBTQ Issues.” This network claims that over a 40-year period, almost 800 different institutional grant-makers and foundations have provided more than $771 million to 6,000 different organizations working in 117 countries to promote the legalization of homosexuality.

One of the original proposals was “Encouraging U.S. diplomatic engagement on international LGBT issues as legitimate human rights concerns.”

But at a time when Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual exploitation of young women is still in the news and his collaborators are being sought by law enforcement, the decision by these Trump officials to continue the Obama policy of associating with the global homosexual movement carries special risks. Years ago, a group called the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) was discovered to have ties to the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Under pressure, ILGA expelled NAMBLA and two other pedophile groups.

Harry Hay, the communist founder of the modern gay rights movement, was a supporter of NAMBLA, while Harvey Milk, who became a gay activist icon after he was assassinated at the age of 33, was fond of teenage homosexual lovers and was accused of being a homosexual predator.

A major Democratic Party donor, gay activist Terry Bean has been arrested on charges relating to a sex abuse case involving a teenager. Bean was a co-founder of the major homosexual lobby, the Human Rights Campaign.

Homosexual Imperialism

Many nations objected to the homosexual imperialism of Barack Hussein Obama, with Ugandan Christian minister Martin Ssempa saying, “Sodomy is neither the change we want nor can believe in. In a video titled “Straight Nation Uprising,” based on his new book by the same name, he calls for “African resistance” to “Euro-American LGBT Aggression” on sexual matters.

Grenell and Craft have justified their campaign by noting that Trump said his administration would be “working with other nations to stop criminalizing of homosexuality.” But there is no evidence that the president wanted to browbeat some of America’s friends and allies at the U.N. into accepting and promoting the homosexual lifestyle. It seems certain that the president was concerned about people being physically injured for their self-proclaimed sexual orientation.

What happened at the U.N. was a major public spectacle designed to shame Christian nations into recognizing and approving homosexuality. It appears to be a case of Grenell hijacking U.S. foreign policy for the benefit of his friends in gay groups such as the Log Cabin Republicans. A foreign affairs advisor to Mitt Romney during his 2012 presidential campaign, Grenell has a same-sex partner and claims to be a Christian.

Craft was reportedly recommended for her post by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. She and her husband, Joe Craft, donated about $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee.

What they apparently don’t appreciate is that countries with a Christian or Muslim orientation have resisted putting government approval on homosexual conduct for many reasons, including public health. Indeed, in the modern era, the so-called “criminalization” of homosexuality is designed to discourage dangerous high-risk practices that spread AIDS and other diseases. AIDS is devastating Africa in particular.

Ambassador Attacks Christian Zambia

The Obama policy that is being continued by Trump officials Grenell and Craft has already led to a major deterioration of diplomatic relations with the African nation of Zambia. Indeed, a major scandal erupted when the U.S. Ambassador to Zambia, Daniel Foote, attacked the conservative Christian country of Zambia (96 percent Christian) over a court case involving the sentencing of two homosexuals.

Incredibly, Foote’s official U.S. Government statement seemed to imply that Zambia was obligated to promote homosexuality because it received American foreign aid. Foote said “Zambia is one of the largest per-capita recipients of U.S. assistance in the world, at $500 million each year.  In these countries where we contribute resources, this includes partnering in areas of mutual interest, and holding the recipient government accountable for its responsibilities under this partnership.”

Zambian President Edgar Lungu reportedly called President Trump to complain about what U.S. officials were doing. He told Sky News, “We are saying no to homosexuality. When you are tying it to aid, if that is how you are going to bring your aid, then I’m afraid the West can leave us alone in our poverty. And we’ll continue scrounging and struggling.”

The Trump Administration has now withdrawn Foote, a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, from his post.

Clean House at the United Nations

Unless corrective action is taken quickly, the next move by major Soros-supported groups such as the Council for Global Equality and OutRight Action International will be to have the U.N. declare homosexual activity an international human right.

Such a move would put Trump on the spot. His supporters like what he has done in the areas of economics, anti-abortion policy, and national defense. But many of these same people do not want the government to approve homosexual conduct.

Damage to America’s standing in the world — as a country that respects the sovereignty of nations — has already been done. But if Trump is pressured to embrace a global “right” to homosexuality, it could not only further undermine his support among conservative Christians but turn out to be a moral catastrophe for America and the world.
