Pope walks like an Egyptian

The Pope hits the road to Egypt, which especially lately has been paved with Christian persecution by those underappreciated peaceful Muslims. According to CNN :

That history will provide the Pope an opportunity to plead, again, for nations to open their borders to migrants fleeing violence in the Middle East, a stance that puts him at odds with populists in the United States and Europe.

The meetings with prominent Muslim leaders, including the Grand Imam of the venerated al-Azhar University, offers a chance for the Pope to continue an oft-overlooked aspect of his papacy: his outreach to Muslims. [more]

But Francis walks like an Egyptian as Pope. So he’ll make sure to get in his digs, mainly to the West, that opening our borders to migrants from the Mid-East will purify our hearts. If only we would open up to 12th century barbarianism, we’d be the better for it.

When do we stop playing by the Muslims’ Rules for Radicals book?

Anyway, Francis is on the road again. Does he learn, like the first Francis, that you cannot appease these people? Let’s see how empathetic he is for victims of Palm Sunday.

Kucinich and Marxist left up to same old agenda

Fox Commentator in Bed with Kim Jong-un

by Cliff Kincaid on April 12, 2017 | AIM

The Epoch Times newspaper is currently running an editorial series called “The Dead End of Communism” that includes a detailed discussion of the diabolical, even Satanic, roots of Karl Marx, the father of communism. Looking at his writings in detail, the authors document how his goal was “to enact a sort of vengeance against heaven.” Contrary to his “progressive” profile, Marx hated humanity and life on earth. His appeal was that he promised a heaven on earth. But it turned out to be hell for those living under it.

Communism has killed more than 100 million people, and millions more are at risk of death. The people of South Korea and other countries are currently in the crosshairs of Communist North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. The communist ruler, Kim Jong-un, has even threatened America with a nuclear attack.

The North Korean nuclear weapons program was assisted by President Bill Clinton’s administration, in the name of stopping it, and the Obama administration did little to contain it. It’s likely that former President Barack Obama informed President Donald Trump about this growing problem, and that this helps explain why Trump has been so concerned, even preoccupied, with the North Korean nuclear threat since he took office.

Of course, the North Korean regime could not survive without the assistance of its communist neighbor, China. So communism is not itself dead. It is very much alive and a real threat. […/ see]

Absolutely, the old Dennis Kucinich is up to his tricks again. Occasionally you get a clip of him sounding reasonable on some issue or other.

But then reality invades when you see what he is doing and passionate about. There can be no doubt what his agenda is and who’s side he is on.

Still, he uses the banner of peace as cover for his real political agenda — as usual. Except now they have made him a Fox News contributor, telling me even Fox either fell prey to his politics, or never new his real political bent — much less the “peace” one.

Politicization A Central Threat

How the intel community was turned into a political weapon against President Trump

By Scott Uehlinger, opinion contributor – 04/05/17 | The Hill

The U.S. intelligence community is in the midst of a severe crisis. It has been used, or perhaps allowed itself to be used, as a tool of political destruction, against some of the same U.S. citizens it was created to protect.

What I am talking about is the continuing “Wiretapgate” debacle. We are seeing the widespread abuse of intelligence by an incumbent administration to target political opposition. Long a technique in the developing world — a tactic I often witnessed as a CIA station chief working abroad — the Third World has come to roost in the United States. It is a tragedy of the first order.

The danger of politicization is widely accepted throughout the intelligence community as the greatest hazard, in theory, to the intelligence profession. If an intel service cannot be accepted as an unbiased arbiter, it loses the trust of its people, and risks becoming irrelevant and unheeded. History is littered with intel failures; one need only look to the invasion of Iraq to see how politicization can lead to costly failure and a “trust gap” that can take years to bridge and resolve.

Let’s just call her ‘Spreadsheet Suzie’

Report: Susan Rice Ordered ‘Spreadsheets’ of Trump Campaign Calls

by Joel B. Pollak4 Apr 2017 | Breitbart

President Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, allegedly ordered surveillance of Donald Trump’s campaign aides during the last election, and maintained spreadsheets of their telephone calls, the Daily Caller reports.

The alleged spreadsheets add a new dimension to reports on Sunday and Monday by blogger Mike Cernovich and Eli Lake of Bloomberg News that Rice had asked for Trump aides’ names to be “unmasked” in intelligence reports. The alleged “unmasking” may have been legal, but may also have been part of an alleged political intelligence operation to disseminate reports on the Trump campaign widely throughout government with the aim of leaking them to the press.

At the time that radio host Mark Levin and Breitbart News compiled the evidence of surveillance, dissemination, and leaking — all based on mainstream media reports — the mainstream media dismissed the story as a “conspiracy theory.”

Now, however, Democrats are backing away from that allegation, and from broader allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, as additional details of the Obama administration’s alleged surveillance continue to emerge.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/04/04/report-susan-rice-ordered-spreadsheets-trump-campaign-calls/

Oh no, nothing to see here, media can go back to sleep. Spreadsheet Suzie’s got this!

More on another Breitbart article on Rice’s interview with Andrea Mitchel (lovefest)

“I leaked nothing to nobody, and never have, and never would.”

Rice: “I can’t get into any specific reports … what I can say is there is an established process.”

Well, so there’s an “established process” for surveillance, I take it?
And Spreadsheet Suzie was right on it.

Mo-Bro still the undeclared terrorist org

13 reasons to declare Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization

Trump reportedly backing off of executive order
Updated: 03/30/2017

Leo Hohmann — WND

President Trump has decided not to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, at least for now, according to published reports citing pressure from the U.S. State Department and the King of Jordan.

Anonymous sources told the Washington Times that the administration “backed down from a plan to designate the Brotherhood” after an internal State Department memo advised against it.

The State Department’s argument – put forth in a memo to the White House – comes down to a belief that there is actually more than one Brotherhood and that one side is not as bad as the other because it works through democratic processes in the Middle East, the Washington Times reports.

Yet, it’s always been known that the Brotherhood operates on multiple levels.

According to scholar Martin Kramer, the Muslim Brotherhood from its early days had “a double identity.” Kramer, as quoted by Discover the Networks, writes:

“On one level, they operated openly, as a membership organization of social and political awakening. [Founder Hassan] al-Banna preached moral revival, and the Muslim Brethren engaged in good works. On another level, however, the Muslim Brethren created a ‘secret apparatus’ that acquired weapons and trained adepts in their use. Some of its guns were deployed against the Zionists in Palestine in 1948, but the Muslim Brethren also resorted to violence in Egypt. They began to enforce their own moral teachings by intimidation, and they initiated attacks against Egypt’s Jews.”

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., one of the earliest advocates of banning the Brotherhood in the U.S., describes it as “the mother lode of global terrorism.” She told WND President Trump is unlikely to be successful in defeating Islamic terror without confronting the head of the snake.

“It is the umbrella organization from which all terrorism flows because the Brotherhood’s goal is global Islamic rule,” Bachmann told WND. “It’s no coincidence that every terrorist act stems from the same Muslim Brotherhood motivation: Global governance under Islamic Shariah law.”

Again with the anonymous sources but, that aside, it is a reminder of the real problem. Sound familiar? Of course it does. The Muslims play the notion to the hilt that on one side there are terrorist Islamists while on the other there are those peacenik Muslims. Which ones are the activists? That would be the terrorist, caliphate ones — including ISIS, al Qaeda, Taliban et al.  It’s blatantly obvious the peaceniks are not the activists, else they would be at odds with Islamist terrorists. But that disagreement and conflict is strangely missing, which is part of the problem.

It would be hard to imagine the “Shining city on a hill” — as Reagan coined the US — being the biggest promoter of abortion on the planet, if it is to remain true to that notion. But no, it doesn’t make sense. Nor does it make sense not to label a terrorist organization a terrorist organization, one with ties deep into this “shining city on a hill”.

Ying and Yang on Obama vs. Trump

At this point, all reporting by mainstream media must be questioned. There is no benefit of belief. Disbelief is the instinctive reaction for much of the public.

No wonder Trump took a pass on the WH Correspondents’ Dinner. Good move.

Just over a week ago McCabe told Reince Priebus that reporting on Russia was wrong. Remember they raised questions about Priebus even asking the FBI or Comey to help correct the record about the claims.

But James Comey and the FBI said they could not or would not do anything to correct those reports. And they said they would have no comment about it.

Here is a subsequent NYT report (Feb 23) on the details

WASHINGTON — White House chief of staff Reince Priebus asked a top FBI official to dispute media reports that President Donald Trump’s campaign advisers were frequently in touch with Russian intelligence agents during the election, a White House official said late Thursday.

The official said Priebus’ request came after the FBI told the White House it believed a New York Times report last week describing those contacts was not accurate. As of Thursday, the FBI had not stated that position publicly and there was no indication it planned to.

The New York Times reported that U.S. agencies had intercepted phone calls last year between Russian intelligence officials and members of Trump’s 2016 campaign team.

Priebus’ discussion with FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe sparked outrage among some Democrats, who said he was violating policies intended to limit communications between the law enforcement agency and the White House on pending investigations.

“The White House is simply not permitted to pressure the FBI to make public statements about a pending investigation of the president and his advisers,” said Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee. …/

The FBI would not say whether it had contacted the White House about the veracity of the Times report.

Forward to Trump’s accusations of Obama’s administration wiretapping the Trump Tower. The president suggests it, then they demand proof in unison. Yawn.

So they have no proof of collusion with Russia over hacking into emails, ostensibly to “influence our election.” But they go on talking about it as if it were so.

Then we have these reports on the surveillance and investigation of Trump over many months now. Yet as soon as Trump questions that it is dismissed as if there is nothing there. We know it was going on. There was an ongoing investigation, right?

For media, how can they complain that there is no wiretapping surveillance issue at the very time they don’t question the existence on the Russian claims. Now Clapper goes out to say there was no FISA warrant and no evidence of collusion, of Trump’s campaign, with the Russians. Why are we still investigating and taking the collusion as if it were established? Yet they decline to take seriously the wiretap, surveillance claims. Really?

As to Comey, he cannot correct media reports about the collusion claims. But as soon as wiretap claims were leveled, he demands DOJ correct them, then does it himself. His reason was to protect the integrity of the FBI. Again, really? He says he is “incredulous” at the accusation. Within weeks he does two completely opposite things.

Apparently he doesn’t care about the integrity of the presidency. I can’t imagine that going on under Obama. I suppose, in that case, the public would have a right to know. He did come out to make statements clearing Hillary. Now, we don’t have a reason to know that a presidential campaign or members of it were under surveillance. When is it illegal to speak to Russians or their diplomat anyway?

In NRO Andrew McCarthy states about wiretaps that:

A traditional wiretap requires evidence amounting to probable cause of commission of a crime. A FISA wiretap requires no showing of a crime, just evidence amounting to probable cause that the target of the wiretap is an agent of a foreign power. (A foreign power can be another country or a foreign terrorist organization.) Read more

All right, how would they investigate the Russian connections (or lack thereof) without some sort of surveillance? Couple that with a former CIA chief back in August endorsing Hillary Clinton. He used his intelligence credentials to brandish this op-ed claim:

“In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

Coincidentally, that is the same definition used in a FISA court that a person is either a foreign power or agent of a foreign power.

He closed with this prescient note: “My training as an intelligence officer taught me to call it as I see it. This is what I did for the C.I.A. This is what I am doing now.”

He lent his expertise and experience as the justification for saying this about Trump and endorsing Hillary. Using that word “agent” of Russian Federation is significant. When have you ever heard a candidate called that, with no proof? All based on his professional career, so he claimed. That was a few months before the supposed wiretap.

They use the bio: “Michael J. Morell was the acting director and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2010 to 2013.”

The same Mike Morell equated the Russian hacking with the 9/11 terrorist attacks. And as Breitbart reported, he now works for Philip Reines, longtime Clinton aide and loyalist. Let’s also remember that Morell was involved in the writing of the Benghazi talking points.

The investigation report on Benghazi determined, in contradiction to Morell’s and Obama officials’ claims, “the talking points were “deliberately” edited to “protect the State Department” — whatever Morell claimed.

“These allegations accuse me of taking these actions for the political benefit of President Obama and then secretary of state Clinton. These allegations are false,” Morell said.

So the report directly contradicts what he said in testimony.

He recently told a reporter in December that:

“To me, and this is to me not an overstatement, this [Russia hacking] is the political equivalent of 9/11. It is huge and the fact that it hasn’t gotten more attention from the Obama administration, Congress, and the mainstream media, is just shocking to me.”

Then they also injected the story about a dossier of BS that threw in all kinds of claims. That made its way into presidential briefings, of Obama and Trump, claiming it involved blackmailable info. So they back fed an unsubstantiated report (political op-research) into intelligence, with the help of McCain dropping it on FBI’s doorstep. Then it was surfaced to the top of intelligence, into the PDB.

Think, the Obama administration had wiretapped (*correction: subpoenaed phone records) James Rosen and his family’s phones. So far, many officials have said there is nothing showing proof Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russians. Yet nothing prevents Democrats and some in the media from saying that Russia hacked or interfered with the election, when there is no proof of either. Then insinuating that it is connected to Trump.

The Obama Agenda: Trumping Reality

Let’s boil it down to what this whole assorted affair is about — and I mean all the political dissent and consternation. Well, it is pretty simple.

It is really just two things. Almost all of the hyper political climate and fear mongering is over Obama’s legacy of disaster and 2)his last famed achievement, the Iran deal.

That too simple? Some might say duh, we knew that. Maybe, but it really is that simple. At least that is all that is driving it — aside from some powerful egos marinated in Obama’s legacy of lies. I mean what would you expect from those people surrounding the Captain of Treason?

Remember the schoolyard meme that one person is merely putting down another in order to build himself up? That must be an elementary lesson people learn. In this case, it’s one Obamafiles need to fully utilize — to preserve all that they did.

Or as Steve Bannon told CPAC “if you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken.” They aren’t. “Everyday it is going to be a fight.”

 

Insiders: Obama Holdover ‘Shadow Government’ Plotting to Undermine Trump

by John Hayward17 Feb 201 | Breitbart

Several intelligence insiders have come forward over the past few days to describe a “shadow government” of Obama holdovers leaking information to derail the Trump presidency, with National Security Adviser Mike Flynn’s resignation their first great success.

There are even allegations that former President Barack Obama himself is actively involved, citing his establishment of a command center in Washington and continuing involvement with activist organizations.

Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Schaffer, formerly a CIA-trained defense intelligence officer, said in a Fox Business appearance on Wednesday: “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan, and Jim Clapper, and I would even go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before they left.” He also mentioned Ben Rhodes:

Schaffer said it was clear that sensitive information that could compromise U.S. intelligence-gathering methods was divulged to the media as part of the campaign to bring down Flynn, by people who had access to beyond Top Secret material. That should narrow the list of suspects considerably.

The Washington Free Beacon quoted “multiple sources in and out of the White House” on Tuesday to describe a “secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran.”

Since all news coverage is now driven by leaks of dubious accuracy from anonymous sources seemingly above evaluation, it seems only fair to entertain some insiders who wish to leak on the leakers.

According to the Free Beacon’s sources, the Obama loyalists are highly organized, under the direction of former Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, famed for his ability to sell false narratives about Iran to credulous reporters. His critique of media types as young “know nothings” whose only experience “consists of being around political campaigns” would seem validated by a press corps that eagerly runs with just about anything an anonymous source hostile to Trump feeds them.

Rhodes shoveled a lot of manure to cultivate the Iran nuclear deal, and he is not going to let it go without a fight. According to the Free Beacon’s sources – one of whom is identified as a “veteran foreign policy insider who is close to Flynn and the White House” – Flynn was targeted because he was preparing to “publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal.”

Another official who purportedly sits on the National Security Council said “the drumbeat of leaks of sensitive material related to General Flynn has been building since he was named to his position,” and his resignation was “not the result of a series of random events.”

“Last night’s resignation was their first major win, but unless the Trump people get serious about cleaning house, it won’t be the last,” warned a third source, suggesting these Obama loyalists are just getting warmed up.

Here’s what frames it in context — aside from the fact this author is not calling it a shadow government. Proof of that seems to be in the pudding. (daily)
 

Revenge of Obama’s ‘Former Officials’

Obama officials are waging war on the Trump White House.

For a president who has a uniquely hostile relationship with the press, positive news cycles are both rare and fleeting. The Trump team displayed remarkable discipline by refusing to step on the president’s well-received address to a joint session of Congress. A lot of good discipline did them. Just 24 hours after Trump’s address, a series of troubling reports involving links among those in Trump’s orbit to Russian officials reset the national discourse. Those stories make for a trend, though, that has little to do with Trump and a lot to do with his predecessor. The Obama administration’s foreign-policy team seems to be campaigning to rehabilitate itself one leak at a time, and the press is helping.

The frenzy on Wednesday night began with a revelation in the New York Times that members of Barack Obama’s administration had left a trail of breadcrumbs for investigators who happen to be looking into the Trump campaign’s contacts with the Russian government. The report revealed that intelligence officials intercepted communications between Russian officials and “Trump associates,” and that the administration worked frantically in the final days to ensure those revelations could not be buried and forgotten after they left office.

Donald Trump may be busy but so is the Democrat Left.(what remains of the political left) While Trump works long days on his agenda for the people — who elected him by 306 electoral votes — the fiction writing, revisionist Left is as busy creating a means to oppose him. Though there is a deeper reason why they oppose him.

Obama’s agenda needs to trump reality for Obamafiles to succeed.

See, they are not happy with opposition alone but set their sights on undermining, destroying, ousting or overthrowing him. And that, according to their radical base, is “by any means necessary.” Labeling these conspiracy theories is dangerously naive.

Sure they have openly called for and mentioned a slew of hopes and schemes, including political ones for the midterm elections. But the threats that are far more credible, in my opinion, are the ones many people want to poo-poo.

According to the author above, the theory goes that there are nine designated Obamafiles to cover the tracks and rewrite the dismal mess of foreign policy failures they made of things. Cleanup in isle one! From Syria to Yemen, and Ukraine to Iran, and all their applied negligence along the way. Protecting the Iran deal is job #1.

There is one solution, besides rewriting history, to divert all attention to Trump. Then to photoshop Trump into the entire foreign policy picture. Yes, remember Ben Rhodes also has that idea of journalists as young and pliable know-nothings, which he can lead on Obama’s narrative. They can write it as fast as media can report and cover it.

That only begs the question: does media realize it is being led on this narrative? They have yet to ask Obama and his people any questions. Did you notice how quickly the N Korea nuclear issue became an “immediate short-term” crisis? They dispensed Obamafiles to news channels to defend the Obama legacy by setting off all these alarm bells about immediate problems across the globe. Meanwhile, applauding their foreign policy disaster.

But while the Iran Deal from Hell was being negotiated, no one could say anything about the problems or what to do about them because, in their minds, everything hinged on securing Obama’s legacy deal. Of course, there was no time for anything else. They only cared about one thing, and sacrificed everything else in order to get it. Never mind that it was a failure too. Even liberals are restless and tired of defending Obama’s record.

As every group has a de facto leader, the comrade in charge of the nine elite Obamafiles is fiction writer Ben Rhodes. It only makes sense. He in turn would answer to Valerie Jarrett and Obama. This group would be the lead defenders for Obama’s holy grail, his legacy. As Iran is the living monument of that, it requires lots of protection — by any means necessary. Russia is just a choice diversion.

What is odd here is that for years Obama refused and avoided any action toward Russia in hopes of getting the Iran deal done. In Syria, he did much the same: he ignored Iran’s meddling in Syria and elsewhere, with their agents of terrorism that flows across the Mid-East. He would not upset that to get an Iran deal done. So basically he sold us and our security out to terrorism, in order to get his deal. Now we know that; the intelligence community has to know that, Iran knows that, and Russia knew that.

The irony is Obama needs an entire apparatus(Shadow Gov) to protect his legacy of lies.

This is something we need to get used to. It’s not going away. If I read one I read five articles just today that concluded this is not going to change. This is what the left is. They are in perpetual protest.There always has to be something to protest. It’s how they get what they want, how they exist.

However, now they are merely doing it to protect their legacy of policy failures. The problem is that the left does not understand the whole paradigm. They see one thing at a time and that’s all they care to see. They don’t care about the big picture so it’s a challenge just to break through. It is on the media, it is that way to youth and a whole lot of regular working people. So Bannon is right, we have to fight this thing and this mental subterfuge every day and not fall for the simple, colorful narrative.

Assessment of the Left

Remember the old Van Jones’ cliche about how he viewed the progressive, liberal strategy?

“Top down, bottom up, inside out.”

Van Jones: “Change has to be top down. bottom up, and inside out. It’s got to be top down… we can’t just leave the federal government in the hands of our enemies and expect to make a lot of progress.

So even if we can’t get everything done we WANT to get done out of DC, we certainly can’t let other people have the levers of control of DC. But also, you can see right now, DC can’t do much by itself. You have to have that bottom up movement….and that’s what’s been missing is that bottom up sense of movement to get the best out of DC. And What’s {inaudible – cog]…in stopping that is the inside out piece. “

Van Jones said “we need to have the right president and the right movement.”
(the right radical roots)

Rahm Emanuel: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is [its] an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

This is not about conflict resolution this is about conflict proliferation.

It was always fairly clear what they were talking about when they said bottom up or top down – Van Jones said they needed the presidency. But it was always more vague what inside out really meant — maybe inside anger acting out, turmoil or chaos itself? Now we see more of what really “inside out” looks like within the government.

That is government turned inside out, against itself, when undesirable power to radicals is in control. Of course this wouldn’t happen under Obama. Where government is used against itself to bring down an opposed power. And it is rolling out of the left right now.

See all the obfuscation, obstruction to allow nominees to get through. You have all the Dems, in minority, functioning in lockstep to use any of their power to oppose and sabotage the majority. Now the radical remnant within is in rebellion.Then you have the phony grass roots AstroTurf acting in concert calling for obstruction.

The first thing liberals did post election was demand Dems obstruct and do anything possible to prohibit everything the new administration tried to do. Hence, resistance.

At the moment, all three parts seem to be fully activated with one added caveat, the media. It is nicely cooperating with their strategy. Money was never a problem with Soros, Dem orgs etc. Then all they need do, collectively, is project chaos everywhere they can.

So under those circumstances, the only way Repubs can get Dems to cooperate is to appease them somehow — what the left wants and expects. If the radical left cannot control government, they must at least exert force over those with levers of power.

And media is doing a marvelous job right now playing along. It’s almost too perfect for them. They have a former president now going back into politics, leading their movement. Democrat pols are all on board with the radical left’s agenda to disrupt, deny, and destroy anything opposing them. It’s basic radical ideology, and Dems are fully radicalized.

There is Move On, which was Clinton’s defense organization. Then there is Organizing for Action, Obama’s campaign organization. There is RevCom, a tool of Bernie’s. Along with other leftist groups, including the ACLU, BLM, environmentalists and the financiers like Soros glad to foot any bills. Couple it with Obama and his internal political machine of fellow travelers, and former staff. Eric Holder and then a crew of Obama’s lawyers challenging everything Trump is doing. Now it’s a strategy of inside out and upside down, too.

Open Borders and Closing Freedom

The new paradigm of the Left is much like the old one. The only thing that changes are the means. They call themselves progressives using many cute slogans like “lean forward”. Their speeches are laden with phrases like “we want to keep moving forward” or “we aren’t going backwards.” But the direction they go is to their same old ideas of the past.

The left is now into its regressive movement. That is to close the door on freedom while opening the borders to anarchy. Or open our borders to hate while cracking down on opposing speech by calling it hate speech. Dems don’t have problems with hate.

Just recently South Carolina Senator Tim Scott read a list of the comments he regularly receives from the left. They are filled with names like Uncle Tom, sellout to your race, traitor. All names and labels are fair to them. By design they are meant to hurt and inflict pain. Force and intimidation are two of their favorite weapons.

But what we don’t hear is anyone asking the Democrats to condemn the remarks. They obviously haven’t done so on their own. But these people are the Democrats’ base, and the very people who put them into office. Yet they cannot denounce their words. and no one actually expects them to.

If a Republican supporter said these they would demand condemnation immediately. Look what they did with any racist or KKK statements. Not so with the left, they are free to offend anyone, even rewarded for it. Elizabeth Warren rakes in big dollars for name calling and attacking. She organizes their hate-fest. And the hateathon’s dollars roll in. But our condemnation of that speech is out of line and must be stopped, however possible.

The modern regressive movement is about stomping down the threat of freedom everywhere, even in the womb when they can. Doing the latter under the guise of freedom of choice, or reproductive rights. Nipping freedom in its nurturing womb is an ultimate goal, ripping out its roots before it grows. Nip that seed of freedom in the bud.

But open borders? Now that is something that needs to be unrestricted. Judges decide if we have the grounds, or authority, to restrict non-citizens’ freedom to invade. Though our freedom is wilting on the vine, if left to liberals. The left has set the default position to ‘unrestricted’ and say we basically cannot do anything about it; even if it is a matter of national security against those who declared war on us. Speak nothing about that.

So, open the borders wide and slam the door shut on freedom.

Protest Academy

It is about time the left creates a charter school devoted to liberalism. So they can start kids when they are young, you know, while mommy and daddy are hard at work trying to pay for their schooling. (Sounds just like higher education now)

That in mind, they can drop all the academic curriculum for a more “traditional” liberal one to teach the kids life lessons with courses like:

How to win friends while influencing protests

How to drop the F-bomb like the big leftists.

Life is one giant protest

Protesting for Profit

Don’t like it? Protest it

Fun with rocks and bottles

Writing your own protest lyrics

How to make a protest sign from a pizza box and broom handle.

How to get arrested protesting without knowing what you are protesting.

Creative fundraising techniques for any liberal cause

Justice bad — social justice good

Mocking opponents and defending the indefensible

Chant creators are always looking for talent

Big bucks in bigotry — Part 2: identity politics rules

Navigating hate speech: deflect and destroy

How to play the race card — always in style

A primer on anarchy

Then again, am I giving them ideas… or are they already teaching it in Public schools?

Rantzilla on having a new President

Buckle up I have a rant for you, if you are interested. What a difference a few long months makes?

The National Coalition of Trolls (DNC et al) has kicked off their newest operation, fashioning itself as a Tea Party type movement. Hey, I’m not writing their script, only commenting about it.

Seven years after the popular Tea Party rise, Democrats are imitating the movement. Wait, they spent all that time mocking, attacking, ignoring, and calling them racists etc.; but now say they are following in their footsteps. Media spent 7 years attacking it, trying to marginalize and discredit them.

Whatever they say.

Wait, the Tea Party was set off by government intervention in healthcare, bailouts, stimulus, arrogance of power, and taxagedon to grow government and its control by dolling out goodies to people. Yet Liberals and Democrats say they are following Tea Party’s lead? The original call for Tea Parties was led by Rick Santelli on CNBC saying enough is enough, announcing the idea of Tea Party, hearkening back to the days of patriots dumping tea in Boston Harbor to protest taxes and the King’s control schemes. Everything about that is contrary to the modern Left, and any movement it started.

Tea Parties also had strong overtones about freedom of speech, religion, the Founders and the Constitution. Not necessarily what we see in today’s left. They do call themselves progressives but the new term, coined by others, is regressive. They are about shutting down speech of others or labeling different views hate speech. Still, they continue their imitation narrative.

Never mind that the left is also caught up in their civil disobedience and violence agenda. It is basically nothing like what conservatives or Republicans did. Tea Parties had a respect for law enforcement and kept the demonstrations neat — even though they were grassroots organized. Not the Left. Tea Parties were bottom up grass roots, even resisting the intervention of some Republicans who wanted to commandeer it. The Left is always organized top down, by those in power, or close to its power center. (George Soros et al) But it is staged to seem grassroots — Move On. It’s their business model.

Here is an interesting tangent to liberals.

I have a theory involving market forces and the Left’s willing gullibility to believe in all these things they do, so easily. I figure if you can find a way to target that segment of people, it would be a goldmine. How so? Just think about it. Obama ran on a faith-based message and they all bought it: lock, stock and barrel.

I mean if you have people who are that easy to sell anything you want, then you have a powerful market of buyers or consumers. They demonstrate a willingness to believe in things based on little proof. And once they do, believe in it, you can hardly even talk them out of it. That, my friends, is gold to any marketing agenda. That’s the utopia salesman have searched for. Think about that slogan, change you can believe in. Then think about Obamacare and all the lies. You couldn’t even tell them they were lies, even after Gruber came out admitting it. Even after it was proven to be lies, they still believed it.

So that is the secret, getting them to believe it. That isn’t hard, they are an easy pitch. But once they do, they remain loyal even if results are not what they expected. Now that is the kind of people any marketer wants to find.

Whether this quote is from James Carville or not, it is true from the standpoint of reality. And Obama constantly proved it.

The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd. — credited to James Carville.

So couple their mentality with the herd mindset and you have a powerful consumer base. You could sell them anything. And they create the demand all by themselves. What could be wrong with that? And then, once sold on it, you could not talk them out of it.

All you have to do is look at the last election. Bernie scored big with Dems, some say he could have won. He promised them free healthcare, free college and a 15 per/hr minimum wage. They believed and remained loyal. Just what they wanted to hear. You couldn’t talk them out of it. They sent in their five box tops and sat there waiting for it to arrive.

Wake up and smell the crazy.

Democrats discovered a new phenomena called Voter Rage. And it is catching on in the media. They like this movement, of course. Remember all the attacks at Tea Parties? Not so with the perpetual protestors, which are nothing more than re-branded Occupiers, who re-branded themselves Bernie’s base, who re-branded themselves as the Resistance.

Something happens they don’t like, take the rage to the streets. Mix it with anarcho-commies, it gets very colorful. They weaponize rage and hate as tools.

What we have with the Left is the biggest case of projection I have ever seen. They lost the election but now think they can project themselves right back into majority power, or at least a potent minority one. Their perception is supposed to become everyone’s reality.

Democrats have that other time-worn weapon. If they don’t get their way, they take to the streets and protest. That is a powerful force for them to get more stuff, or promises. See how this cycle works? Once they believe, they’ll do anything for that cause whether they understand it or not. It makes no difference. People wonder how so many people can be self-claimed socialist? My opinion is they aren’t all socialists — many are Me-ists. As long as they think it benefits ‘Me’ they’re fine with it. If it is not, then cue the rage.

Reminder to the Left

I’m sorry, you whiny Leftists and agents of evil, may I just take a moment to remind you that we are the real resistance here. Your distortions of reality do not change that.

Had it not been for our resistance, you would all be preening over the Queen of estrogen and sipping your lattes while contemplating pantsuit policy. America would continue on its destructive path, undeterred, with your cheering section and sycophant media in tow.

I want my entertainment back

Libtards, leave the game of football out of your politics. They can’t. Bad enough football had its deflate-gate problem. Roger Goodell could be the most disliked man in sports. Awkward.

Liberals want their way on all the major issues and to politicize everything. They will hijack any popular current events to try to achieve heir ends. Now even the Super Bowl and its one big day in the year.

They hit a new low with politicization of Super Bowl ads. Add to that, Lady Gag-ass refused to answer whether she would go political at the half-time show. ‘Politics, no politics, politics?‘ Well, is there really any question what she’ll do? Can she resist that huge temptation to score? Lady, get a grip on your body suit. Politics is not entertaining.

I mean with this theme going on all around it and now even in Super Bowl ads, is there any question about what to expect? What’s next, George Soros sponsoring a Nascar team?

This non-football fanatic will be cheering for offense not defense — both in politics and the big game. The best defense is a good offense. Gag-ass, Goodell, Libtard loons, nut-jobs and crackerjacks, I’ll be on offense from now on.

I think the left figures(knows) that at a time when everyone’s attention is focused and people are celebrating, is the perfect time to assault you with a political message…. to try to change your opinions/positions. They found another market for liberal emotion.

There is no shame when even ad sponsors go political. It is nothing but corporate pandering to popular protest sentiments. Be careful, you asshole merchants, who you cater to. It may backfire on your bottom line. It will be hard to complain about political fallout after you lit the fuse, putting politics over business — or the business of politics.

Libs, you can have your MTV… just leave football the hell alone. But you’ve never been good at reading the tea leaves. Business sponsors: is that left the market you want to pander to? If so, the only question that remains is the price.

Get ready for Terrorists Lives Matter

Terrorists Lives Matter is now cranking up the protestors against Trump’s anti-terrorism Executive Order that bans and restricts travel from certain countries. From JFK to the Statue of Liberty, to the editorial pages, leftists take to protesting.

Gee, could it be a useable voting bloc? The professors of crisis are hard at work.

And the activist news media falls right in line to advocate for terrorism. Then they start with the “but this is a recruiting tool for ISIS” hogwash. Any hope that the left will wake up and see daylight is vastly exaggerated. At least they’ve been exposed for who they are. Don’t these people know that terrorism/terrorists have been extorting our laws for decades? No, they don’t care. But the left desperately tries to super-spin it as a gift to ISIS playing right into their hands

The people who advocated for Unconstitutional Executive Orders before, now defiantly protest legal ones. Even notable law professor Johnathon Turley said precedent of law is very much in Trump’s favor for his actions. That doesn’t stop the ACLU.

Suddenly Trump’s Executive Order causes the left to bend further for terrorists’ agenda. Yet we are the bad guys? Give me a freaking break. The word “resist” is now their slogan. Wow, instead of encouraging and welcoming terrorists into the country, the president tries to halt it and they cry resist. But we’re helping terrorists?

Hints of this came in December, when the black liberation groups honored terrorists like the one on OSU campus as victims. It seems like just name any anti-life issue or event and leftists can get behind and rally to it. And they’ll find a way to justify their support. Since everything is reversed now, they will support the tyranny of anarchy over the rule of law. Terrorists or shooters become victims and police become the problem. A border wall is offensive but illegal immigration is not. Anything opposing their agenda is called racism and condemned.

A two teir system has emerged. If you are an illegal “undocumented” alien, you qualify for special protections and immunities from the law. Whole cities now stand up and say they’ll go to any lengths to secure and protect illegals from the rule of law — even if they commit crimes. See, it is completely backwards. Problem after problem and issue after issue.

An entire city has to be inconvenienced and held hostage because of their agenda to support illegals. The hell with lawful citizens, special evolving protections need to be granted for law breakers and illegal aliens. And then they blame the root cause for their unlawful situation on the rest of America. How fair and just is that?

Before their favorite line sprouts from everywhere: as I have said over and over, it is not about “who we are” — it is all about who they (terrorists and Islamists) are.

What the heck, another week under Trump and another protest. I’d call that “winning’.
