Lights Out

The dimwitted left has lost whatever small piece of its mind that may have remained. Now they attack General Kelly and the ‘Empty Barrel’ called that name racist.

It ain’t working! Ha, Planned Parenthood issued a statement that they stand with black women and the black community. There’s an endorsement of culture for you.

So former presidents(Stripes) are having a fundraiser at Texas A&M, excuding Trump. Well, bite my asparagus! That’s bad? Exactly why we elected him.

“Deep from the Heart: The One America Appeal” is part of an effort launched last month by former Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, all of whom are scheduled to attend the concert Saturday.

Their thousand points of light have gone dark. All more of a political appeal.

But their incessant, incestuous lectures continue against voters and we the people?

Planned Parenthood lets us know they are still in business: (from Planet Absurd)

‘Human Rights! Human Rights is the goal! Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Just in case there was any flicker of light left, PP makes sure to snuff it out.

Rep Wilson vs. Trump

This may not last up too long since there are no other clips. Videos are questionable.

Anyway, it is set to (2 min-12) the particular part where Rep Wilson told them she wanted the phone in the car, so she “could curse him[Trump] out.”

After Kelly spoke, the next day, Wilson said:

“John Kelly’s trying to keep his job,” Wilson told Politico. “He will say anything. There were other people who heard what I heard.”

Then came a statement from her office:

“The congresswoman will not be making any further comment on the issue because the focus should be on helping a grieving widow and family heal, not on her or Donald Trump,” Wilson’s spokesperson said Thursday.

But no fear, early Friday she was back on CNN’s morning show — not off mourning.

Thursday Trifecta of Politics

Politics hit the trifecta Thursday. The left thought they were in paradise. But the joke or lesson is really on them — with any analytical thought.

First the details: Chief of Staff General Kelly was compelled to come out to counter the “empty barrel” attack from Congresswoman Wilson(Fla); President Bush’s speech in NYC; and Obama found his angry voice, again, campaigning for progressives in NJ and VA.

That on the heels of McCain delivering his salty attack on Trump, in receiving the Liberty Medal honor. (McCain had to use his honorable moment to attack others)

Kelly’s remarks from the White House were weighted and directed perfectly. Just the fact that he would have to come out to address this issue that media blew into a firestorm is a sign of our times. He complained of the lack of sacred tradition and civility.

Well, home run. But it won’t stop the left in a spiral dive into the gutter. Obama would never be treated this way, under any circumstances. Nor will it stop RINOS.

So Kelley’s remarks were very sincere compared to her diatribe.
But he alluded to the moral decay.

Wilson had even phoned in to “The View” to scream her hatred for Trump, calling the Niger incident Trump’s Benghazi. If she didn’t politicize it before by listening in on a White House call, she went all out on a live TV rant — leaving Megyn McCain almost speechless. She said she told the widow to give her the phone so she could “curse him out.”

One person left the audience with the sincerity of moral high ground. General Kelly.

Bush speech

The health of the democratic spirit itself is at issue. And the renewal of that spirit is the urgent task at hand.

And we know that when we lose sight of our ideals, it is not democracy that has failed. It is the failure of those charged with preserving and protecting democracy.

Freedom is not merely a political menu option, or a foreign policy fad; it should be the defining commitment of our country, and the hope of the world.

They are further complicated by a trend in western countries away from global engagement and democratic confidence. Parts of Europe have developed an identity crisis. We have seen insolvency, economic stagnation, youth unemployment, anger about immigration, resurgent ethno-nationalism, and deep questions about the meaning and durability of the European Union.

America is not immune from these trends. In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined. Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious and pressing needs. The American dream of upward mobility seems out of reach for some who feel left behind in a changing economy. Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts. Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.

We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. At times, it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. Argument turns too easily into animosity. Disagreement escalates into dehumanization. Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions – forgetting the image of God we should see in each other.

We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism – forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.

We have seen the return of isolationist sentiments – forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places,….

Clearly directed at Trump, and not just him but the people who elected him. I love how these guys all do drive-bys on the electorate. — especially when they don’t agree with the results of the election.

Demonizing isolation, for a guy who ran against nation building. And yes, loudly he bashes the nationalism, as if it is corrupted somehow. But it was this very nationalism that helped get him elected, not once but twice. (even though many of us questioned his record) Oh nationalism was great when it voted for him. But it’s bad when we saw what direction he was taking us — that not so subtle handoff to globalism, the New World order.

Of course, again a huge swipe at conspiracies. Say nothing about the current conspiracy theories against Trump. No, we know the ‘conspiracies’ he meant were on the right.

Finally, oop there it is: “Our governing class”. Where the hell does that come from? The global elitism people are sickened of, which causes his bitterness at our nationalism.

Obama speech

“What we can’t have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before that dates back centuries,” the former president said.

He implied that some people in power are embracing outdated mindsets when crafting policy.

“Some of the politics we see now, we thought we put that to bed,” Obama said. “That’s folks looking 50 years back. It’s the 21st century, not the 19th century.”

The master of illusion and straw men comes out to remind us everything wrong with him and the past 8 years. He’s like a sideshow magician at the fair doing cheap card tricks to lure your attention, just to be disappointed.

That’s supposed to be a fastball attack on Trump but Obama perfected the art of division. That’s what he ran on. I still remember the drop down lists for all his groupie identities. Then there was the class warfare, anti-Christian diatribes, anti-American crap, attacks on the rich, pitting one group against the other. It’s his specialty. Now he rails against the division he built.Ask Dems, they’ll tell you.

Good News: 1 making a big difference

There is a good news story here about making a difference in a big way from a surprising young person. Prudential just awarded this youth for his volunteer good work.

Not very often do you hear of someone who managed this kind of accomplishment in the community at just 16. He’s helping veterans which seems to be a passion.

If this doesn’t humble you….

Prudential Spirit of Community Awards (Their site)

Bradley Ferguson, 16, of Northfield, N.J., a sophomore at Mainland Regional High School, started a service-learning club that over the past three years has supported veterans and people in need by refurbishing an American Legion post, collecting food for a community food bank, making lunches for homeless people, and growing fresh produce at several community gardens. When Bradley was in seventh grade, he saw many people in his town lose their jobs and, ultimately, their homes. In an area reeling from the recession, the demand for food was so high that the local food banks were running low on supplies, he said. One day, Bradley watched in horror as a desperate veteran set himself on fire outside the local VA clinic. “This is an image that will never be deleted from my mind,” he said. “His death serves as an inspiration to me to create change.”

With $123,000 in grants obtained by Bradley, his “Post Crashers” club has conducted numerous activities to aid veterans and feed the hungry. Club members and other volunteers helped refurbish the local American Legion post by painting it, replacing tiles, updating the kitchen, and decorating the facility. They also cleared the backyard to build a “victory garden” and a community picnic area. Post Crashers also has made nearly 2,000 sack lunches for the homeless and for veterans living in transitional housing, collected large amounts of nonperishable food items for veterans and a food bank, and worked on gardens that have yielded more than 1,500 pounds of fresh produce for the hungry. ***

 

So someone in High School made this kind of effort in helping veterans and the local Post. No doubt there is a future leader. Already there is local talk about a possible political career. Must have some super-proud parents. Nice that they are honoring him.

Beyond reasonable sympathy

I’m going to link to this article even though it is pretty insulting to the American public, but then it is what the left does. Of course they are never responsible for the moral decay or lack of civility in society and culture today.

The person he is trying to channel, John McCain, is another source of irritation.

A op-ed by John Kirby appeared at CNN praising McCain’s speech. It has issues of its own.

“John Kirby: John McCain’s speech accepting the Liberty Medal was about leadership, more than it was a rebuke of Trumpism”

In what has been largely read as a denunciation of President Trump’s world view — the senator derided “half-baked, spurious nationalism” — McCain also reminded us who we are as a people and, perhaps more importantly, who we were.

We’re not just a nation divided. We’ve become a nation afraid. …equal parts paranoid and paralyzing.

There are real threats and challenges out there, to be sure. But shame on us for letting them rip us apart this way.

[turn lecture on] You can read McCain’s speech as a slap at Trump. And maybe it is. You could also read it as the musings of an old man near the end of a long, storied, heroic life — a man unburdened by the vagaries of electoral politics. And maybe it is that as well.

Although, to be fair, McCain has never been one to shy away from taking an independent stand.

I choose to believe he is appealing to who we know, deep down, we really are as Americans — even if we don’t want to admit it: Pioneers. Explorers. Innovators. Entrepreneurs.

Appealing to? No, what it was is a treatise aimed directly at Trump, his views or philosophy, though McCain is too timid to use his name. Trump. But that is also why it was praised the way Kirby and other MSM hacks did.

That makes his speech a full-throated example of the political hatchetry it attempts to rail against. Hypocrisy. No wonder the Left would embrace it the way they did. And note the parts they highlight — those explicit angry attacks at Trump. Loving it.

Of course I will take it as the Slap it was meant to be ( I should be used to these slaps by now, since circa 2000) because what good is a shot, after all, if it is totally lost or missed? And it fits true to McCain’s past vindictive at those he disagrees with. You can’t have it both ways: praise it as the hit it is and call it benign on the other hand.

I share the concerns of many about the President’s dangerous ignorance of the world, his diminishing — if not vacant — curiosity and his general disdain for any thoughtful, balanced approach to governance.

“If we hear the words of leaders like McCain as a reminder of who we are as a nation, rather than just as a rebuke of the divisions Trump has brought”….”we’ll come out of all this stronger and better than we were before.”

So Kirby tells us how we are supposed to read his speech, in some innocuous way, to see the divisions he calls out — which will make us stronger. Stronger to ignore someone directly attacking your motives that belong in a dustbin of history. Pay no attention to that. Meanwhile, the press and media will point out how incisively he attacked you and the president.

What schizophrenic alternate reality. Kirby you take the cake. So it’s okay for McCain to make a broadsided attack, but we are at fault for seeing it as one. Did anyone ever try that with Obama….and get away with it? Never.

A week In Dem Spinville

Since the left is so big on collective, I thought I’d take a nice sampling of their collective voice over a week. I’m sure I missed a lot.

Jimmy-“guess what’s in my pants”-Kimmel says of people who stopped watching his anti-Trump show that they likely aren’t the kind of people he would want to talk to anyway. He’s glad to be rid of them and would do it all again.

Eminem, aka Marshall Bruce Mathers III, did a video giving any of his fans who supported Trump the finger, spitting on the floor, saying he doesn’t want them.

Colin Kaepernick now claims that he’s been colluded against in a conspiracy, files a suit.

Kathy Griffin stuck her head up to say “I’m being blacklisted”. But doesn’t mention the spying complaints and restraining order against her. Her booking canceled but last week was wearing a Trump mask giving him the unapologetic finger. She told the audience it would be all over youtube and right-wing media. Now she’s back to Trump victim #1.

Berghdal goes to court only to blame Trump for his treason woes.

Hillary weighs in on the flag protest. The flag and anthem are just dog whistles too.

“Let’s be clear, those players aren’t protesting the national anthem or the flag,” Clinton said. “They’re protesting racism and injustice, and they have every right to do so!”

Dear delusional loser, you don’t recognize a protest of the flag when you see it.

Oh, let’s not forget Hillary went over to London and blamed Nigel Farage and Brexit for her loss. Brits cost her the election. She must have run out of people to blame in the US .

With all this talk and bitchin’ lately, don’t think McCain could hold his tongue.

John McCain went to Philadelphia to receive an award “for his “lifetime of sacrifice and service” to the country. Ironically, he used the opportunity to viciously call our patriotism “some half-baked scurrilous nationalism” that needs to be condemned. Well, that means we all need to be condemned. We re unpatriotic. (call it Juan’s wet kiss to media)

Referring to the new administration:

Echoes his Senate Floor rant where he lashed out at people:

“Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the Internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood.” adding “Let’s trust each other.”

He meant “trust” fellow Senators — not the people.

Reminiscent of his blast against Evangelicals and Christian conservatives back in 2000 in the primary. Then he branded Christian Conservatives “agents of intolerance” in the “outer reaches.” He can broad brush us but we can’t generalize on their actions.

Then McCain’s recent slam in the Senate saying ignore us that we just don’t want any public good. He is obsessed with blaming the people. Every speech is just another opportunity to bash conservatives in his tolerance mantra. Sounds like Hillary.

Hillary’s instincts are always wrong on everything. Those instincts tell her to be quiet when she is under investigations or should hold a press conferences. Speak through lawyers. Instincts to get a private server, hide emails, then delete them. Then her instincts won’t let her shut up when everyone wants her go away and shut up.

So all those “collective” attacks are directed at not only Trump but toward the people, especially supporters of Trump.(peeping haters) They all agree that we are the problem.

Hillary gets the ooopsies, again

Hillary Clinton falls, breaks toe on the stairs during London book tour

Washington Examiner

Hillary Clinton canceled several media appearances Monday while on her book tour in London after she fell down the stairs and broke her toe.

“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” Clinton told “The Graham Nortion Show.”

“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe. I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.”

The former Democratic nominee was supposed to do interviews with BBC Radio 4’s “Woman’s Hour,” ITV’s “This Morning” show and the BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show.”

Clinton has been on tour promoting her book, What Happened, which details her election loss to President Trump.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/hillary-clinton-falls-breaks-toe-on-the-stairs-during-london-book-tour/article/2637638

 

I smell a big  hematoma coming on for Hillary. What Happened now, Hillary? Who’s fault will it be?

The Enemy Within

What do these fine Senators all have in common?

Mitch McConnell
Susan Collins
John McCain
Lisa Murkowski
Rob Portman

If you guessed not on the ballot in the next election, you guessed right. And they all voted against the ‘straight repeal’ amendment on Obamacare.

“Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Dean Heller, R-Nev.; John McCain, R-Ariz.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, joined all Democrats to defeat the amendment, which would have given Congress two years to devise a replacement to the 2010 Affordable Care Act.” Fox

So now that all those above are safe in their seats for the midterm, they stand ready and willing as the opposition. They should be marginalized and isolated. Then it wouldn’t hurt Trump or others to do some campaigning in their states.

Most of them fought tough elections and now don’t have a care in the world about accountability. Remember Lisa Murkowski was originally appointed by her father to fill his own seat, after he won the gubernatorial race.

They are the enemy within and will be there for the duration of Trump’s term.

In the Senate, we are told the one major legislative accomplishment was getting Goresuch to the Supreme Court. Mitch is credited for that. But it was mainly achieved in opposition to Obama. And some Senate Republicans had weak knees and wanted to cave on that. So Mitch proved effective at opposition. Now it is a different story.

Strategy is the boss

There was a reason I mentioned the rules for radicals because they are tactics. So that brings my concern to the front.

I think most of what Trump has done has been refreshing, a welcome change. But I do have one concern. I may not understand all of Trump’s tactics, he’s been doing this long enough to lose track. I like most of it.

There is this question I have though. You have strategy and you have tactics. My question is wondering if the tactics are getting ahead of the strategy? I know Trump has active plans and a strategy, but I’m starting to see more tactics than strategy.

That is not necessarily a bad thing, though it does prompt the question.

However, when tactics supplant strategy we have a problem. When tactics don’t support an overall strategy, they can’t be that effective. I wonder if we are at that point? I don’t think it is a major problem except it is far better if all the tactics coincide with the strategy. And we know that tactics alone cannot be a strategy.

But there is a danger of reversal. That is when strategy becomes subservient to tactics. In that case the strategy loses, and certainly can’t be very effective. That is my fear.

Well, at least we don’t have to worry about those two things with Congress. They have neither a strategy nor tactics. And whatever political tactics individuals do use don’t support any kind of strategy. So the body is completely incompetent, useless and ineffective. But that’s probably why we can’t collectively oppose the left, let alone follow through on plans. Probably why we are losing even when we’re winning elections.

That brings it back to Trump. Finally we have someone with an actual plan and pretty basic strategy. But then I wonder if we are losing the strategy for the tactics and maneuvers? And a strategy should not be incoherent among team members. What team? Congress is acting as if the Dems are in charge and Republicans are an opposition party. So they haven’t got the hang of winning. That might turn into a self-fulfilling philosophy.

Because if we lose a cohesive strategy then we are a lot like Congress is already, and obviously their lack of plan is not working for us at all.

Micro macro targeting the opposition

Why does the radical left often appear to gain more, faster ground than the right on issues? Well, again, it may have something to do with Alinsky tactics.

Rules for Radicals: rule #12

““Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

I’m not saying they are more successful as a rule. However, it does seem like the right is constantly caught up in attacking institutions, if by their nature, Yet we know the root of it is the Marxist people. Not like you can go through liberal academia one by one, that would be exhausting. We have. So we focus on the institution they’ve corrupted.

We focus on areas of government they’ve corrupted. But we did have the perfect match with Obama in office — even Holder, Lynch, Rice and Hillary. And guess what? We were told those attacks were off limits, or racist. Republicans frowned on those claiming they did not want it to be personal. Why not though? We ceded the perfect weapon and target. It was successful when they finally held Holder in Contempt.

But we do need to make constant personal examples within the institution. Think about this flag controversy. When we made it about the flag, that was a win, and we used Kaepernick as its poster boy, we saw much more success. Notice how everything the left does is personalized at Trump, even when it doesn’t apply.

Name it and shame it can work. I’ve realized just because Leftists have no shame doesn’t matter. It’s the people who see it who matter. If we concentrate on leaders like Pelosi, Schumer, et al, we are getting more bang for the buck, especially when the Left is also thinking of replacing them. Whenever they stick their heads up we should be zooming in on the opportunity to personalize it.

The same must apply to the RINOs in congress. If they get isolated, they feel it. Sure as heck, those like Corker are going to feel it from home. He can’t even run again. But if he is going scorched earth, then his record and pending scandals are fair game too.

Whether it is tax policy or Obamacare, we have a plethora of personal examples. Just what the left doesn’t want to talk about, real people affected by policy. Besides, the left going after Trump on everything is a tad bit old and stale. Another rule applies there. Rule #7:

““A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.“ Don’t become old news.”

At some point even Trump attacks get old. Media can’t keep them alive on life support. Think of how many things Obama just waited out, scandal after scandal, till finally nothing was done. Remember he called it old news when we never got any answers?

Explicit National Threat

Well, Hillary just issued a clear threat to the future of America and generation unborn. From California, where else?

“There is too much at stake not to speak out about the things that matter most,” Clinton said Monday night at the University of California-Davis.

“Some of those people online and elsewhere who were saying like ‘You know, we kind of wish she’d just wouldn’t say anything anymore’ and ‘we kinda just hope she disappears’ have not been following me for the last 40 years, I can tell you that much. I am not going anywhere other than right into the middle of the debate about the future.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/hillary-clinton-i-am-not-going-anywhere-other-than-right-into-the-middle-of-the-debate-about-the-future/article/2637000

Ah oh, that just sent shivers down spines of people and babies still in the womb.

Except that the debate about the future should in no way include any Clintons.

Haven’t they slimmed our past enough already? So old Clintons never slither away, as long as there’s still money to vacuum up on the way. That was a threat!

For someone who couldn’t be found for days on end in the campaign, and went many months without a press conference, she is suddenly everywhere in interviews, TV, appearances, talk shows, book stores, auditoriums, universities, fundraisers, Hollywood block parties. Now airdropping into future America. Fetuses should be petrified.

It’s nothing new. That is what she and her Planned Parenthood allies have been doing for decades: robbing America’s future and posterity. Grim Reapers.

Boise Professor Criticizes “Radical Feminism” As Undermining Family Values. . . Students Demand His Termination For “Hate Speech”

Keeping it real….and this is as real as it gets. I think those ivory and marble towers are having babies. And the fruits are clear. “Progressives” must be quite proud. Radicalism on auto-pilot.

JONATHAN TURLEY

We have been discussing the increasing pressures on academics in what is an increasingly hostile atmosphere for academic freedom and free speech.  The latest example is out of Boise State University where students are calling for the termination of Professor Scott Yenor for “hate speech” because of his published criticism of radical feminism.  While there are obviously good-faith reasons to criticism Yenor’s views, his article explores how some feminists have in his view undermined parental rights in transgender cases. Instead of simply responding to his arguments, liberal students are seeking his firing by the university in an all-too-familiar pattern.

Plugging the Leaks

 

Mattis Warns DoD Against Leaks in New Memo

Tara Copp, Defense News October 6, 2017 Defense News

WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Jim Mattis issued a new warning Thursday to all military and Defense Department civilian personnel against information leaks, and directed personnel to report suspected leaks, guidance that government transparency advocates said would have a chilling effect on the public’s right to know.

In an internal memo dated Oct. 3 and obtained by the Military Times, Mattis reminded DoD personnel that “it is a violation of our oath to divulge, in any fashion, non-public DoD information, classified or unclassified, to anyone without the required security clearance as well as a specific need to know in the performance of their duties.”

Mattis also reinforced the obligation to report leaks.

https://www.defensenews.com/news/pentagon-congress/2017/10/05/mattis-warns-dod-against-leaks-in-new-memo/

But in the left’s global world, they see this as scary and interpret it as a transparency problem, having a “chilling effect,” simply because Mattis tries to crack down on leaks. To leftists in media, it wouldn’t matter that our men or objectives could be undermined. Maybe he also ought to worry about the huge cloud storing military information under an Amazon connected entity? At some point. But the leak crackdown is a problem?

White people are the problem

‘I Hate White People’: Teen Accused Of Hate Crime Against Elderly Man In NYC

Justin Caruso — 10/07/2017 | Daily Caller

A teen was charged for assault after an alleged hate crime-related attack occurred Thursday on the New York City subway.

According to the New York Post, an 18-year-old named Devon Ahmad attacked a 65-year-old white male after the two men shared an elevator.

Ahmad reportedly said, “White people suck. I hate white people. White people are the source of my problems.”

“He then proceeded to punch the victim in the face with a closed fist,” said NYPD spokeswoman Tiffany Phillips.

The man who was attacked had to be hospitalized. The teen has been charged with hate crime assault.

This news comes after many mainstream media sources completely ignored the story a Kansas City man who was arrested for the deaths of four white men who said he wanted to “kill all white people.”

Are we getting the message loud and clear?

Rights in question by definition

This is about a wide range of events, not just on the Las Vegas shootings.

I pray for all the victims, families, and all the heroes too. My heart goes out to them.

All these many issues and events are connected with a common theme. It’s pretty simple. Principles and philosophy are keys to the common denominator in all.

 

The phrase has repeatedly been proven so many times that “Democrats don’t trust people with their own money.” That always keeps coming up, and we keep saying it. Of course it doesn’t change though, it’s always the same way in the end. They don’t.

But not only don’t progressives, liberals or whatever, not trust us with our money; they don’t trust us with the 1st amendment, 2nd amendment, 5th or the 9th amendments. The same theme throughout is that you cannot be trusted with those “rights” or the freedoms, even those which are not enumerated and retained by the people.

1st: they don’t trust you with your freedom of religion, speech, or assembly. It doesn’t matter that you are secure in those rights. Either the government or others know better and so you are not capable of using your rights to your best interest. That they should have veto powers over those “rights”. Limited by any means.

2nd: You cannot be trusted with the rights to own arms, that someone needs to oversee and regulate or limit your rights. (first they tried to say your rights don’t even apply but Heller decided that. Now they are up to the less right you have, the better for society)

5th: You cannot be trusted with your own freedom of private property. Kelo decision tried to answer that. Your right stops at government’s need and greed. The Supremes freely and liberally reinterpreted what “public use” means — whatever they want it to, including economic value to the community. Secondly, likewise “just compensation” means what they say it means — for what public use they deem fit — for your property.

Hitler once corrected a reporter on how he was not opposed to ownership of private property, just that property owners should consider themselves agents of the state.

9th Amendment: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” They believe in limiting your enumerated rights and so naturally they are suspicious on your ability to handle any of your rights not enumerated, which they can disparage, regulate or deny. Basically, they reserve their right over your rights. I cannot find their superior, sovereign power.

So is there a running theme here? I think so. But now we see that they just don’t trust us, or people in general, in their freedom. Notice they are very suspicous of our motives or use of our rights. And I’m suspicious of progressives’ sincerity about the Bill of Rights.

And of course by denying or restricting those first ten of the Bill of rights, they also infringe on the 14th amendment of due process and equal protections of the laws.

It becomes clear with any serious thought that the left, who spouts platitudes about rights, just does not trust you — or anyone opposed to their interpretation, thinking, or ideology. Thus, your rights must be subservient to their ideology, agenda and political convenience.

Liberals don’t trust you with your money, rights, freedom, or property, or believe in your ability to protect it. That government’s duty is to control our freedom, not secure it.

DOD revises Extremism materials

EXCLUSIVE: DOD Drops SPLC From Extremism Training Materials

Jonah Bennett — National Security/Politics Reporter –  10/02/2017 | Daily caller

The Pentagon has officially severed all ties to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) after previously relying on the group’s training materials on extremism.

Brian J. Field, assistant U.S. attorney from the Civil Division, stated that the Department of Defense (DOD) Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity removed any and all references to the SPLC in training materials used by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), in an email obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation from the Department of Justice.

The DEOMI is a DOD school founded to fight segregation and inequality that teaches courses in racial, gender and religious equality, among other subject areas like equal opportunity and pluralism. The courses are available to DOD civilians and service members.

As part of a response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Immigration Reform Law Institute, Field wrote in the email sent in late September:

Additionally, the DEOMI office informed me that, based on a previous FOIA request, DEOMI records concerning, regarding, or related to the preparation and presentation of training materials on hate groups or hate crimes were forwarded … That 133-page document did reference the SPLC; however, based upon guidance from the Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity, all references to the SPLC have been removed from any current training.

Russia Probe Non-Statement: Swamp Update

In probably a desperate act of relevancy, the Senate Intelligence committee announced Wednesday it would hold a press conference on the Russian inquiry into the 2016 election.


‘No evidence, but we’re still looking, looking, looking. We’ve got lots of doors — ones not closed or locked by Special counsel anyway — and we continue to search.’ But they cannot give up the ghost of the 2016 election witch hunt. ‘But we’re “expanding” it’.

There was no new information and virtually no answers. Why they even had to hold it, I don’t know? On the day and time Trump went to Las Vegas to visit victims, they had to hold a press conference. I once had a little respect for Sen Burr, but that is long gone. What a putz he turned out to be.

So they made news for not making any news, except to verify that they allow the Mueller witch hunt investigation to hold our government hostage. I’d like to know where in the Constitution that a special counsel is to control Congress?

The only big question answered was whether they would release questionable Russia Facebook ads? The answer was: “we don’t release documents provided to our committee.” They could have just issued a statement. Maybe they could remind leftville media that the electorate determines election results, not ads. Media doesn’t know.

All I know is that this is not the government we elected. We’d like that government returned to us ASAP.

They should have called this as a Swamp Update or an “Update from the Swamp.”

Means of dissent

Whether consciously among most leftists or not, the idea is that many people all have disagreements and that those individual disagreements can then be harnessed, united and directed, symbolically, at the flag and Anthem. America itself can be the object of individual disagreements under a big tent. (in reverse of unification theory) That big tent often becomes the Democrat party. So people can loosely unify against the flag.

This is evidenced in the NFL protest and all those being sympathetic in some way to it, even including the owners. They parlayed it into a vehicle for generic hatred of Trump, or protest of him. And racism or oppression. The individual issues or disagreements don’t seem to matter, as long as collectively focused or that they march together.

Disagreement to disdain

Why can they unite on a platform of dissent so easily but not uni formally under the flag? Disagreements. They say that they don’t feel united under the flag, or feel left out, or don’t like our policies etc. Even if much of the discontent is a product of what they are doing.

Everyone may have their different disagreements, powerful as they are, with issues or policies or traditions, yet all can sort of agree in protest as a loose-knit group of discontents. That dissent can then be channeled or directed at America. Dissent breeds disdain. And those who are not predisposed to have much affinity for that American flag, America, have no problem transferring their animosity onto the flag. In the end, the source of animosity is often not as important as what it is directed at. The gestalt of the protest reigns supreme.

You see, it amounts to using the freedom of speech to protest the very guarantor of it. This is a radical perversion directed at America’s foundation. Freedom of press, or the first amendment, can be used to solidify dissent against America. That is something Marx and Engels understood well. It does not take a majority to succeed in undermining America.

Protesters and discontents can stand on their freedom to do it, but what of its use?
Does what you do with something not matter at all — but only your right to do it?

It should sound familiar: the ends justify the means. Just like the slogan of the Trump Resistance movement is resist “by any means necessary.” Outcome is all that matters.

On the plus upside: at least one ESPN host is “tired of it,” Stephen A. Smith. Score.
And Ravens’ Anthem singer resigned, a vet, saying to ‘go where you’re welcomed.’

Cost of NFL’s anti-America protest — fans and NFL sponsors.
Cost of American freedom — eternal vigilance.

Defining dissent in the kneeling protest

I’m trying to get a grip on this Anthem, flag protest attitude, so I’ll give it a whirl.

The “protesters” are evidently the type of people with an attitude that look around at the current conditions or circumstances in the country to decide if they approve of America, based on satisfaction. Then of course they can’t bring their resentful hearts to respecting the flag or Anthem. The whole America concept is tainted by their disagreements.

It goes hand in hand with identity politics that everything — including your judgement — is based on your own identity. And that is why identity politics are so divisive. By contrast, only if you are satisfied with everything can you support the Anthem or flag. That’s the synopsis of their view. Who could be happy about everything they see? It becomes a false flag; and so dissatisfaction becomes a convenient straw man for American dissent.

If everything is based on your current condition or circumstances, as you see and interpret them, then it is subjective to each person. The old saying is “you can’t please all the people all the time.” – John Lydgate

“You can satisfy some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot satisfy all of the people all the time” ― John Lydgate

Dissent has been turned into an art form.
Enter the Colin Kaepernick kool-aid brigade. 🙃

Mayor Carmen Cruz the terrorist supporter

Well, that didn’t take long. The lamestream media made an instant hero out of the San Juan mayor, to oppose Trump. Now they’re entwined with the terrorist supporter.

BUSTED: Anti-Trump Puerto Rican Mayor Supported Terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera

Got News – Sep 30, 2017

Carmen Yulin Cruz, the anti-Trump Mayor of San Juan who has used the national spotlight of Hurricane Maria to attack Trump, has a long history of supporting convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, a Puerto Rican radical who ran a paramilitary group that waged war against the United States.

Since May 29th, 2012, Cruz has used her official Twitter account 49 times to lend support to Lopez, a man arrested by the United States government in May of 1981 for seditious conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to transport explosives to destroy government property, among other charges. Later that year, Lopez was sentenced to 55 years in jail for his various crimes.

Moreover, it appears Cruz is more than just a supporter of Rivera’s; she appears to be a personal friend of his. On May 29th, 2016, Cruz posted a tribute to Rivera, and wrote “for a great friend, a great patriot: for you Oscar Lopez Rivera.” …/

Maybe she should drop the Resistance program and concentrate on the assistance.
