Mueller is running amok

After months of getting themselves worked up about hearings featuring a hero once accused of rigging the election for Donald Trump and Don Jr.'s inability to sniff out Nigerian prince emails, spectators of the Russia game have finally gotten what they wanted: indictments.
Unfortunately, the indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Richard Gates have nothing whatever to do with "collusion," however broadly defined. Politically speaking, we have learned nothing except what we already knew: namely, that a shady businessman who briefly worked for the Trump campaign is, in fact, a very shady businessman indeed, one who has just pled not guilty to failing to register as a foreign agent on behalf of the Ukrainian puppet government and not declaring all of his income derived from his essentially pro-Kremlin lobbying.
Dot connectors will, of course, continue to connect dots. It could be that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is hoping to secure testimony from Manafort or Gates that will give him the dirt he needs to bring more appropriate charges. It could be that he already has that information and is just waiting for goodness knows what occasion. At the very least, obsessives will say, the hiring of Manafort indicates — these comments almost write themselves — a very serious lack of judgment on Trump's part. You don't say? The man whose idea of a feel-good national unity speech following an act of domestic terrorism was to suggest a degree of moral equivalence between the KKK and its opponents has horrible instincts, often fails to think things through, is a bad judge of character, etc.? Gosh.


Charles Krauthammer Is Raising Concerns We All Need to Heed

New York Post:
I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago.. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to Organizing for Action.

OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change. Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.

OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines.. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond."

OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House."

Sperry writes that, “The ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC.

Think about how this works.. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.

If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our enemy!

Does this make any sense at all?  Courts force Christians to violate their First Amendment rights???     http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/christian-filmmakers-give-notice-to-court-stop-censorship/

Just another Obama administration bit of criminal injustice.  Quote: "The unnamed informant is being represented by Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official. Toensing  told The Hill  that her client witnessed “a lot of bribery going on around the U.S.” involving Russian officials. However, she said, the Obama administration forced him to sign a non-disclosure agreement about what he knew that would prevent him from testifying before Congress. When the unnamed client tried to bring forth some of the allegations in a lawsuit last year, “the Obama Justice Department threatened him with loss of freedom,” Toensing told The Hill. “They said they would bring a criminal case against him for violating” the non-disclosure agreement.”     https://conservativetribune.com/fbi-informant-threatened-clinton/?   Lawlessness is one of the legacies of the Obama administration.

This item highlights the abject incompetence of the Obama administration.  How this could happen is incomprehensible. Obama's HUD cannot account for billions of dollars.  Quote: "As previously noted, the media has largely yawned at this incredible story of HUD’s gross malfeasance with taxpayer money, focused as they are on President Donald Trump’s latest tweet or the never-ending search for elusive evidence of alleged collusion with Russia to win the 2016 election. Alas, such malfeasance occurred under the watch of the administration of former President Barack Obama, so the media will continue to ignore it. Bet they’d be lined up to issue breathless reports for months if this had been discovered as happening under Trump’s administration."      https://conservativetribune.com/obamas-hud-misplaced-500-billion/?

This probably means that the creators of the fake Trump dossier working for the Democrats are guilty as charged. Quote: "There have been so many desperate attempts to discredit and attack Donald Trump both before and after the election that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all. One of the most shocking of those character hit pieces was a so-called dossier on Trump that was was compiled when he was still a candidate. The 35-page document contained alleged “dirt” on the man who would become president, including supposed ties to Russia and defamatory details of Trump’s personal life — in a clear attempt to make it seem that Trump is either beholden to or vulnerable to blackmail from Russian President Vladimir Putin. That dossier was passed off as completely true by the president’s opponents, but there’s one major red flag: Not a single bit of it has been proven to be accurate, and there are strong indications that it was completely fabricated as a smear tactic. Now, two of the co-founders of the research firm that produced the infamous dossier are refusing to answer questions in front of the House Intelligence Committee.  On Wednesday, Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan of Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm, pleaded “the Fifth” to literally every question that was asked by the committee."    https://conservativetribune.com/russia-trump-dossier-pleads-5th/?

It is truly remarkable how some supposedly intelligent people are instead filled with such hatred that they say and believe things like this math professor.  They demean themselves by what they say and do and seem not to recognize that fact.  Such behavior seems to be a prominent characteristic of so many leftists.  Read the idiocy this so called professor espouses.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/24/professor-claims-math-algebra-and-geometry-promote-white-privilege/   

The Democrats once again pull out their plot to eliminate the electoral college.  This would essentially give Democrats every presidential election because the plot gives five or six states total control because they are Democrat strong holds and are east coast and west coast population centers.  The rest of the country would no longer have any political leverage.  Quote: "If you can’t win by the rules… change the rules!  Crazy? Maybe – but no one has ever accused the far left of being sane when it comes to their plans to seize power, gain control and skew elections.  Now, the latest plot to undermine the electoral process proves again that there’s nothing less democratic than the Democratic Party. They’ve hatched a plan to use the courts to forever change presidential elections by doing a complete end run around the Electoral College."     https://thehornnews.com/revealed-democrats-plot-destroy-electoral-college/    Just another example of the Democrat's absolute intent to seize control of the country in order to fulfill their socialistic dreams.

This congresswoman is trying to be even more outrageous that Maxine Waters.  Neither deserve to hold public office.    http://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/somethings-fishy-with-rep-wilsons-accusations-against-trump-over-call-to-slain-soldiers-wife/  She should be ashamed of herself.    http://trumptrainnews.com/articles/watch-trump-s-press-secretary-destroys-this-dem-representative

This piece highlights the damage far to many of our colleges and universities are inflicting on students.  This professor should be fired.  He is no doubt representative of the guilty at this and other institutions who propagating the many teachers poisoning education at the elementary and secondary levels.  Not only should he be fired the whole of the education department and university leadership need to be replaced with honest and ethical people.    http://americanactionnews.com/articles/professor-punishing-protesters-contributes-to-white-supremacy   This item adds to the destruction of education by socialistic educators (and media outlets of all kinds) poisoning the minds of young people.   http://www.libertyheadlines.com/student-socialist-group-calls-extermination-capitalists/?

Former president Jimmy Carter admits that he and his wife voted for Bernie Sanders.  At least he is an honest Socialist with a wee bit of common sense.    https://conservativetribune.com/jimmy-carter-vote-hillary/?

I completely concur with these sentiments.  Quote: "There is something heinous and outrageous about anyone who attempts to politicize a condolence call when one of our service members is killed in action.  That outrage extends to everyone involved. It extends to the so-called “Representative” in question, in this case Fredrica Wilson, D-FL, who with intent did intentionally listen in on a call from the President that was intended for family members of the fallen without prior notice to everyone on said call. It extends to the family, who permitted said “Representative” to be present in direct and outrageous violation of the obvious expectation (which does not need to be explicitly stated) that such a call would be private and for the sole benefit of the family of said service member."     https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/21/youre-despicable/

No wonder the economy tanked under Obama. He and his administration had no clue regarding economics.   Look at his 8% and compare it to a whole bunch of presidents staring with Teddy Roosevelt.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/25/core-competency/

If this item is even only partially true the big business world of chemical pesticides and GMOs are making a mess of the globe with their poisons and devious machinations.  Quote: "For years, I’ve warned that humanity is a suicide cult which has engineered its own destruction by relentlessly poisoning the natural world with chemical pesticides, heavy metals and GMOs. Now, the collapse of living systems across the planet is accelerating like never before, with ocean fisheries collapsing by the day, topsoil vanishing by the inch, and wildlife populations being decimated by the accelerating destruction of habitat. Humanity, it seems, has broken the planet, and the mass die-offs are now impossible to ignore. Adding even more weight to the horrifying realization that humanity is committing mass ecological suicide, a new study published in the science journal PLoS One has documented a 75 percent decline in insect biomass over rural Germany in just the last 27 years.    https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-10-19-the-global-ecosystem-is-collapsing-insect-biomass-decline-decimation-pollinators-scientists.html

The Swiss do immigration right.  Quote: "You see, the process of getting a Swiss passport differs from the United States in some of the most remarkable ways. For instance:
  • Foreigners with no direct blood ties to Switzerland through either birth or marriage must currently live in the country for at least 12 years before they can apply for citizenship. Years spent in the country between ages ten and 20 count double.
  • The applicant must have knowledge of a national language (The four national languages of Switzerland are German, French, Italian and Romansh) to a minimum spoken level of proficient and written level of very proficient.
  • Applicants for naturalization must have a “C” residence permit to apply for a Swiss passport. Previously they could apply with various permits, but no longer. A non-European Union person can apply for a C Permit only after being a resident in Switzerland for 10 or more years.
  • Applicants cannot have benefited from social welfare assistance three years before applying or during the naturalization process.
  • The State Secretariat for Migration will closely examine whether an applicant has integrated into the Swiss way of life, is familiar with Swiss customs and traditions, complies with the Swiss rule of law, and is not a security threat.

This chart should tell you everything you need to know about Islam and their political left co-conspirators, including Democrats.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/23/do-you-see-a-pattern/

Congressman Trey Gowdy is undertaking an effort to investigate the whole Hillary mess to determine the facts the FBI under Comey screwed up.  Quote: "House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy has announced, along with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, that the two will be jointly investigating the Department of Justice’s handling of the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, saying that the department’s actions have left “a host of outstanding questions that must be answered.”    https://conservativetribune.com/trey-gowdy-officially-cleared-to/?

People who support NFL kneeling nonsense need to listen and heed the words of these two black sports legends.    https://conservativetribune.com/nba-legends-shaq-and-barkley/?

While on the subject of scandalous behavior, this piece revisits the many Clinton sex scandals.  Quote: "The recent sex scandal involving powerful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has many on the left running for cover, and the Clintons have once again come under fire. Of course, Bill and Hillary are not virgins to the dark underbelly of sex scandals. In fact, they have been front and center to some of the most widely publicized stories about sexual misconduct. From Monica to Harvey and beyond, this is some of the filthiest and reprehensible sexual baggage the Clintons carry around."   http://www.libertyplanet.com/articles/sex-and-the-clintons-a-history-of-scandals/

The political left's war on traditional sexual morays is a downright assault on safe, normal, loving and even sacred sexual behavior.  Their efforts have corrupted a whole swath of society with rank decadence that produced the Hollywood Weinstein and pedophilia debacles.  Obama with his successful war on traditional marriage and support for LBGT normalization produced a travesty across our entire society, including his totally idiotic endorsement of transgender behavior which violates wholesome thinking and specifically violates female sanctity and privacy.  Quote: "It’s interesting to see how, in a culture so pornified that any nine-year-old can watch sex acts on-screen all the live-long day, we discover that decorum is absent in American life. This, at the same time that the more Gnostic political Leftists want to transform human nature by erasing sexual categories in their quest to create a utopia of hermaphrodites."  And, "In the meantime, America sinks into a swamp of sexual excess, sexual preoccupation, sexual confusion, sexual recrimination, and sexual remorse. The one thing that none of the combatants can agree on is what might pass for sexual normality. The very notion would be taken for a war-cry."    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/23/down-with-sex/

Former Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid is no better a person now that he is out of the Senate.  He routinely lied, misled and deceived while a senator.  He cut multiple dirty deals beneficial to him, his family, friends and his party. Now he is lying about Obamacare which has been a disaster ever since he was instrumental in getting it passed.  He lied when he launched the bill and raced it through the senate then he claimed no Republicans had introduced any ideas to improve the bill.  A big lie.  Multiple proposals were submitted by Republicans that he personally refused to bring to the floor for discussion much less a vote . Now in retirement he builds on his mountain of lies by claiming that Trump destroyed Obamacare. That it would be a disaster that it is was noticeable from the very beginning of the program.  Reid is an ugly person, was a terrible Senator and deserves no respect from anyone.   https://eaglerising.com/48104/former-senate-majority-leader-trump-ruined-health-care/

The Real Russia Collusion Mess.

This is the latest.  Looks like even AG Sessions is even involved in slow walking the investigation. Quote: "Peter Schweizer, in his masterful book and film Clinton Cash, outlined these facts, but up until now, it appeared that ramifications for the Clintons and others would be nil. In fact, if Attorney General Jeff Sessions doesn’t take action now — for instance, by allowing a confidential informant who knows more about criminal action in the deal to testify before Congress — the punishment for the Clintons and these other associated officials will STILL be nil. At this point, President Trump ought to seriously consider firing Sessions and others at the Department of Justice, including Rosenstein and Special Counsel Mueller. Watch, as Fox’s Lou Dobbs and legal analyst Gregg Jarrett can’t get over the outrageousness of this scandal."    http://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/james-comey-hid-uranium-deal-from-congress/   And,  http://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/ag-jeff-sessions-refuses-to-lift-gag-order-on-informant-in-clinton-russia-probe/

Some members of the former Obama administration, including  Obama himself; Eric Holder; then DOJ; Robert Mueller, then Director, FBI; Hillary Clinton, then Secy of State and former President Bill Clinton all belong in jail.  The mainstream media has been covering up this story for years.  And, congress has closed its eyes and ears to the matter.  The people involved are far too powerful and important to be embarrassed or punished.  If this was the doings of little people they would already be in jail.  Quote: "Final note: there is a great deal of difference between a major outlet like the NY Times running their Clinton/uranium piece for one day—and pounding on it for weeks and months. In the latter case, they would let loose the hounds, who would probe and push and interview relevant people and get confessions and parlay those confessions up the food chain—blowing the story into an enormous scandal—which it is. The Times had its hands on a volcanic piece…and they let it drop. Because the ceiling and the limit had been reached. The Times basically executed what’s called a limited hangout, a partial exposure of a story that was getting too hot to suppress entirely. The limited hangout allows the venting of steam—and then nothing more. In this case, the Clinton camp denies there was any quid pro quo, they assert Hillary had nothing to do with the uranium deal, and the curtain falls. Thus you have the reality which the major media did expose, vs. the reality they could have exposed. The “could have” part would have changed current history—but it was squelched, and put under wraps. Tossed on the junk heap."   BUT, "Now, the Senate Judiciary Committee and Chairman Chuck Grassley are looking into these crimes, because new reports of corruption are surfacing:  FOX News: “The Hill reported that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S. — but the Obama administration approved the uranium deal benefiting Moscow anyway.”   https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/10/23/boom-the-clintons-us-uranium-putin-and-the-fbi/   Things are about to change as the next two items note....

Uranium One is crashing down all around the Democrat party and its leadership from Obama, Hillary, Holder and on down the line.   http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/russia-dossier-bombshell-everything-you-need-to-know/

It looks like Hillary and the DNC were the ones who funded the infamous/fake dossier on Trump which started the current Mueller led investigation of Trump/Russia collusion. Quote: "So to summarize: Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid to uncover and package dirt, whether factual or not, on Trump which eventually found its way in the Trump dossier. In doing so, the Clintons and the DNC were effectively collaborating with “deep” sources, both among the UK spy apparatus and inside Russia. Once Trump won, the FBI was instrumental in “leaking” the dossier to the mainstream media and select still unknown recipients (the same way Comey “leaked” his personal notebooks just a few months later, following his termination, to launch a probe of Trump). The former head of the FBI who was supposed to probe Clinton’s State Department – and the Clinton Foundation – for a bribery and kickback scheme involving Russia’s U.S. nuclear business, is now investigating Trump for Russia collusion instead. But wait, it gets better: as Ken Vogel, formerly the chief investigative reporter at Politico and currently at the NY Times just reported, “When I tried to report this story, Clinton campaign lawyer @marceelias pushed back vigorously, saying “You (or your sources) are wrong.”   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/25/hillary-clinton-lied-paid-for-trump-dossier/    If this gets properly adjudicated it means lots of Democrat and a few RINO Republican heads will roll.

This item picks up where the previous one leaves off.  If these actions are successful former FBI Director is getting exactly what he deserves. Others, too.  Quote: "This rather important discrepancy was discovered by the Senate Judiciary Committee as they looked into Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation and subsequent termination by President Donald Trump, and was noted in an August 2017 letter sent by committee chair Sen. Chuck Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray seeking confirmation, which while heavily redacted, was nevertheless recently produced. “Insofar as Mr. Comey gave materially false testimony to Congress, it appears that he violated Rules 1.0(w), 3.3(a)(1), and 8.4 of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct,” wrote Clevenger in his grievance letter to the bar’s Departmental Disciplinary Committee."     https://conservativetribune.com/lawyers-disbar-comey-lied-congress/?  The implications of this piece reach back in history the Democrats do not want uncovered. That is because it is just one of the many reasons Democrats and the mainstream media hammer on Trump every day for even the smallest of reasons.  They absolutely do not want to deal with this whole Russian/Democrat debacle.  It will blow up all credibility Democrats ever had.  If Congress, the DOJ and Trump administration stick to the facts it will indeed destroy the Democrats.  

Yet another item dealing with special prosecutor Mueller. The more we learn about Special Prosecutor Mueller the more there is not to like.  He is likely on a path to destroy Trump no matter the facts or with manufactured facts.  Quote: "“I have known Mueller during key moments of his career as a federal prosecutor,” Silverglate wrote for WGBH News. “My experience has taught me to approach whatever he does in the Trump investigation with a requisite degree of skepticism or, at the very least, extreme caution.”  According to Silverglate, Mueller once sent someone into Silverglate's office offering to give false testimony for a client. Silverglate said he turned the offer down and noticed the man was wearing a wire.  “Years later I ran into Mueller, and I told him of my disappointment in being the target of a sting where there was no reason to think that I would knowingly present perjured evidence to a court,” Silverglate wrote. “Mueller, half-apologetically, told me that he never really thought that I would suborn perjury, but that he had a duty to pursue the lead given to him.”    Evidence that he has already and will likely continue to play dirty with his Russia/Trump connection fake news story.   

The Mueller investigation has now moved to the Podesta Group and part owner John Podesta, Hillary's presidential campaign manager. The group was involved in the Uranium deal with Russia. Who knows where this mess will eventually end up???   It is notable that the probe's purpose is to look at former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort who worked with the Podesta group. What about Hillary's campaign manager???     http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/23/mueller-adds-podesta-group-to-russia-probe/

Mueller is now under intense scrutiny for his involvement in the Uranium One deal.   http://www.breitbart.com/radio/2017/10/25/frank-gaffney-mueller-absolutely-indisputably-compromised-latest-clinton-russia-collusion-revelations/    It is going to be real interesting how he tries to explain his way out of this mess.

The truly amazing lies Hillary tells.  She is unbelievably deceptive, evasive, dishonest, unethical and much more, none of it good.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/hillary-calls-uranium-scandal-baloney-as-house-probes/

This is going to turn out to be really bad for Hillary and a whole bunch of Democrats, maybe even a few RINO's.    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/10/is_a_media_reckoning_looming_for_hillary.html

Some things to think about

This is something that will cause anyone to engage in serious thought...  Quote: "The more I read, the more likeness I see to Sir John Glubb’s essay, The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival. (It’s only 24 pages and you should definitely read it – it’s brilliant.) Sir Glubb wrote this outstanding work when he was 79 years old, after a lifetime of being a soldier, traveling the world, and analyzing history. It’s well worth a read as he goes into detail about the fall of empires past.  The final stage of the end of an empire is the Age of Decadence.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/23/depravity-frivolity-and-dissent-are-we-watching-the-end-of-an-empire/

This item closely aligns with the previous one. Quote: "Washington is a parasite that sucks the rest of the country dry. The counties surrounding Washington, D.C., have the highest per capita income of any metropolitan area in the country including New York, Hollywood and Silicon Valley. The unemployment rate is also the lowest of any large region in the country. At least New York, Silicon Valley and Hollywood all produce something we need or enjoy. Washington produces red tape, taxes and new ways to handicap innovation on a daily basis."    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/24/washington-is-the-new-rome/

This item shares the litany of damage done to our country by the political left inside and outside government. Quote: "The American leftwing has been transmogrified. The left, which formerly stood for “peace and bread,” today stands for Identity Politics and war. The working class has been redefined as “the Trump deplorables” and splintered into separate “victim groups”—women, racial minorities, homosexuals, transgendered. The oppressors are no longer oligarchs who own the means of production. The oppressor is the sexist, misogynist, homophobic, heterosexual, fascist, white supremacist male working class. The rise of Identity Politics has brought with it politically controlled speech. Primarily white people, especially heterosexual white males, are subject to this control. The limits on their free speech are growing ever more severe, and no one has to be concerned about white heterosexual males being offended by offensive or threatening speech. White males can be called anything and they are."  And, "If husband and wife, mother and father, can’t stay together, how does society stay together?  How does society stay together when Identity Politics teaches hate and inflames social divisiveness? How does society stay together when thugs claiming to be offended offend others by destroying historical monuments that are associated with the memory or identity of others? How does society stay together when its history is erased, its schools, streets, and public buildings are renamed? As George Orwell said, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” The next monuments to be removed are those of the Founding Fathers, racists all who adopted a Constitution that permitted slavery, an inherited institution that they had no power to reform. In the United States history is being rewritten and language corrupted in order to foster hatred of white “oppressors,” especially white heterosexual males. Little wonder Russia responds diplomatically to Washington’s aggression. No need to reply in kind when an enemy is destroying itself."   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/24/the-american-left-rip/

This is a most thoughtful piece. It's focus is on a thing called Civic Religion.  Well worth the read.  Quote: "That said, it is doubtful Lincoln or anyone alive at the time would have embraced the idea of civic religion. The first guy to talk about America having a uniquely religious quality was Alexis de Tocqueville, but he did not think Americanism was a civic religion or anything close to it. He thought America’s uniquely Christian nature is what allowed for a diverse people to form a single nation. For a 19th century American, especially in the aftermath of the Civil War, the idea of a unifying creed would have been laughable. The earliest mention of America having a unique civic life, held together by something resembling a religion, is by Chesterton. He wrote that America was “the only nation founded on a creed” and was “a nation with a soul of a church.” This observation was probably not unique to Chesterton. Europeans have always viewed Americans as being moralistic and impractical, with regards to the affairs of state. This is something our rulers encourage. Just look at the war on terror. It’s entirely framed in moral terms."  And, "This cult of Lincoln promoted by our betters has another defect and that is they are compelled to impose it on the world. This seems to be another problem with all civic religions. The French exported radicalism around Europe. The Soviets exported Bolshevism around the world. The American empire is the story of imposing the American creed on every nation of the world, always against their will. Civic religions, like all religions, don’t seem to play nice with other religions, seeing them as competitors."  And, "The best you can say about the supposed civic religion of America is that it is what the ruling class uses to keep the plates spinning. There is something to say for economic progress and domestic peace. It is not, however, natural or normal, and therefore it must eventually yield to reality. That’s what we are seeing today. Americanism is a luxury item for an America that was 80% white and free of economic and political inequality among the white population. That’s not today so the civic religion is losing its salience."     https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/24/civic-religion/

Quote: "One of the great unanswered question of our age is why Western rulers are obsessed with importing tens of millions of unassimilable foreigners into their lands. In the US, the conventional wisdom among immigration patriots is that one side of the political class wants cheap votes, while the other side wants cheap labor. In Europe, the theories range from female hysteria to poorly conceived economics. The one common thread is that across the West, the ruling elites appear to be trying to crash their cultures. The trouble with these reductionist theories is they don’t make much sense at the individual level, so they can’t very well scale up. For example, the cheap labor argument does not hold up very well when you examine it. Helot labor is great for the business owner, just as long as he is the only guy doing it. When every landscaper is using Aztec workers, there’s little benefit to the landscaping companies. That’s not to say there is no benefit, but does it warrant the suicidal drive to import Mexico into the US?"  And, "The collapse of organized religion, particularly among the Cloud People, is leaving them with no structured outlet for this normal human impulse. The reason a Lyndsay Graham cares more about Dreamers, than his fellow South Carolinians is he feels like he is helping those who need help. It’s why John McCain spent the last three decades chanting about “causes greater than yourself.” Without a structure into which his narcissistic altruism could flow, he searched around for causes and purposes, most of which were destructive."    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/21/narcissistic-altruism/

Voter Fraud 2

The political left/Democrats claim voter fraud is a fiction. However, facts suggest they are the biggest faction supporting and even promoting voter fraud.  Quote: "Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske told state DMV director, Terri Albertson in a letter Friday evening about her concerns regarding the registrations. “It has come to our attention that when offering voter registration opportunities to customers, DMV’s employees offer voter registration materials to DMV customers whom they know to be non-citizens based upon their presentation of a Green Card for identification purposes,” Cegavske wrote. “More specifically, it is our understanding that some DMV employees have been instructed to accept registration materials from all customers, including those who present a Green Card for identification purposes…This practice must cease immediately. Please take appropriate actions, as we have reason to believe that non-citizens have unlawfully registered to vote in Nevada as a direct result of DMV’s practices. Moreover, we now have confirmed that some non-citizens illegally cast votes in the 2016 election.” This voter fraud scheme was kick-started by Bill Clinton and his ‘Motor Voter Law’"   http://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/latest/massive-voter-fraud-scheme-democrats/  
This item reveals that in New Hampshire 5,000 out of state voters may have tipped that state for Hillary.  More evidence of the lack of ethics of the political left.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/09/08/more-than-5000-out-of-state-voters-may-have-tipped-new-hampshire-against-trump/  
Quote: "When Democrats want to slander the president or accuse Republicans of trying to suppress the minority vote, they argue that for as much as people like to talk about voter fraud, it’s largely a myth. It doesn’t happen. We don’t need voter I.D. laws because no one ever tries to vote illegally. They say that the only reason President Trump is concerned about it is because he is embarrassed at having lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton. They say the only reason Republicans are concerned about it is because they know that blacks are less likely to have I.D., so this helps them make sure they stay home on election day."    http://www.themadpatriots.com/politics/democrat-busted-registering-dead-voters-in-virginia-but-fraud-is-a-myth/
Anything George Soros touches will be unethical so Democrat Governor McAuliffie a Clinton ally says no to supporting Trump's attempt to clean up voter fraud.  That is even though commission of voter fraud in Virginia during the last election has been confirmed.  There is good reason why he does not want to play...he is culpable in promoting illegal activity.  Quote: ""McAuliffe's posturing should surprise no one. Every time someone takes a good look at Virginia's voter roll, they find evidence of election crimes that his policies inspired," said Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group."     http://freebeacon.com/politics/mcauliffe-defies-trump-voter-commission-attorney-led-soros-funded-voter-id-challenges/?

You wouldn’t think anyone would be convinced by ANY argument that reduces the security and sanctity of our democratic voting process, but you can never underestimate the left. They’ll throw open the borders, sentence millions of unborn babies to die, and release every last criminal from prison if they get to hide behind some politically-correct nonsense along the way.

Voter Fraud 1

Far too many people do not believe voter fraud is real.  If that is your view then you might find the following items informative.
Thing voter fraud is not a problem?  Think again.  Quote: "Adams obtained voter-registration records from eight of Virginia’s 133 cities and counties, discovering 1,046 illegal aliens were illegally registered to vote. John Fund, author of several books on election fraud, told WND in March the Obama administration created an environment for vote fraud to thrive. “When it comes to illegal votes,” he said, “we need to end the Obama administration’s consistent refusal to cooperate with states on allowing access to records of legal foreigners, illegal aliens and the Justice Department’s refusal to require states to maintain clear voter lists if they accept federal funds for voting purposes. Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of the Houston, Texas-based vote-monitoring nonprofit True the Vote, told WND “no one knows how many noncitizens are voting, because under the Obama administration, attempts to find answers were blocked at every turn.”    http://www.wnd.com/2017/09/fraud-248-counties-have-more-voters-than-eligible-citizens/ 
As noted many times Democrats fight voter fraud tooth and nail.  They claim it does not happen and besides it is a Republican tactic to deny the poor and minorities voting privileges. That charge is just one more big Democrat lie.  They have long used voter fraud to win or at least to try to win elections.  The evidence is overwhelming.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/heritage-foundation-destroys-claim-vote-fraud-doesnt-happen/
There is much more to be added to the truth exposed in this link.  It will be the subject of a future note. Quote: " In a rare admission, Brenda Snipes, a key election official in the state of Florida, admitted both “noncitizens” and felons have voted in Broward County."   This is the admission by an election official in just one of our nation's 3,007 counties and 137 county equivalents.  This is a problem across the country and is routinely something in which activist Democrat election officials dabble.  Brenda Snipes is a Democrat.   http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/trump-right-top-florida-democrat-election-official-admits-illegal-aliens-vote/    The dirty little secret is that the power brokers of the Democrat party fight against any effort to investigate these crimes committed every election cycle. 

Quote: "The Democrats were right: there was massive foreign interference in the 2016 election — from illegal immigrants. An analysis released by libertarian think tank, Just Facts, bolsters President Trump’s claim that Hillary Clinton only won the popular vote due to illegal immigrants voting. The analysis reveals that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 election. (via Just Facts Daily) The think tank relied on data provided by a Harvard study in collaboration with You.Gov. The study samples thousands of voters every two years, including illegal immigrants who admitted to voting. No data for the 2016 election has been compiled. Instead, the authors of the analysis extrapolated information based on the data for the pivotal 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.
According to the study, up to 5.7 million illegal aliens, on the high end, voted in the 2008 election. This number dropped to 3.6 million in 2012, indicating that more illegal immigrants risk voting when there is no incumbent candidate."    https://www.teaparty.org/just-shock-voter-fraud-discovery-confirmed-critical-presidential-election-rigged-250215/    
The political left/Democrats are slowly but surely losing their battle to keep their support of voter fraud hidden from the public. This link explains.    http://www.libertyheadlines.com/vote-fraud-evidence-grows-exposing-lefts-lies/?  
Quote: "One of the biggest problems our country has faced in recent years is the population boom as illegal immigrants flood through our border. President Trump came up with a plan to shake some of these folks up, and it worked perfectly. Aside from just entering the country, these illegals are voting in our elections — which could have devastating results, depending on the area, type of election being held, and so forth. Colorado finally agreed that they would start following Trump’s voter fraud laws. According to Washington Examiner, as soon as the state agreed to go under the examination of Trump’s election commission, hundreds of people in each district started withdrawing their registrations. This sends a strong message to the rest of the country. When people pull their voter registration that quickly, it usually means they knew they were doing wrong the entire time. The gig is up. Another problem that’s been plaguing us are the events of sabotage against Trump, his family, and anyone who works with him."    https://www.teaparty.org/well-well-well-look-happened-soon-colorado-gave-trump-vote-fraud-info-250473/   
Quote: "More than 1,000 aliens, or residents who are not U.S. citizens, have been free to vote illegally in Virginia.  The bombshell disclosure was made in a report released by the Virginia Voters Alliance based on findings from the Public Interest Legal Foundation.  “The problem is most certainly exponentially worse because we have no data regarding aliens on the registration rolls for the other 125 Virginia localities.”  The 1,046 Virginia voters may just be the tip of the iceberg, as it’s only the number found in eight Virginia localities, the report reads. The report found that the most illegal votes were cast in 2012, followed by 2008, the year President Obama was elected to his first term. In both years, Obama won Virginia.  It’s a felony for non-citizens to vote in Virginia. But in Virginia, no proof of citizenship is required when voters register."    http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/bombshell-1000-illegal-votes-cast-eight-virginia-localities/    As you probably know by now it is the Democrats/liberals who fight against voter ID laws saying they are unfair to minorities and the elderly.  Yet those same people have to prove their identity to get a drivers license, visit the White House or buy an alcoholic drink and much, much  more.  Tell me that makes any sense.  
This is a blatant example of a state promoting illegal voters casting votes during election cycles.  This makes you wonder what does it mean to be a citizen anymore.  This is leftism at its worse.    http://www.fox5dc.com/news/local-news/college-park-weighing-proposal-that-would-allow-non-us-citizens-to-vote-in-local-elections   
This piece affirms that voter fraud is a real problem.  The last election was closer than it should have been because of voter fraud.  Quote: "The video was recorded by an organization called Voter Fraud is Real. Their website emphasizes the bipartisan need to stop voter fraud in America. Both sides of the political spectrum benefit from honest elections. That’s why they went to great lengths to talk to an inside source who worked for the Clinton campaign. His identity is kept anonymous for his protection. Since he was actively engaged in organizing voter fraud on behalf of Clinton, he’d be facing serious jail time and worse, given the Clinton history of “dealing” with those who cross them. The source came forward to Voter Fraud is Real after being ripped off. After Clinton had lost, the campaign didn’t pay him the money they’d promised. The money train ran out as there would no longer be public money or graft without Hillary Clinton in the White House. The video reveals that illegal aliens are at the heart of Democrat voter fraud schemes. The anonymous subject was tasked with registering illegals to vote. The total number of illegals who cast ballots for Clinton nationwide was in the MILLIONS!     https://www.teaparty.org/watch-shock-video-surfaces-expose-massive-voter-fraud-worse-thought-248999/   Here's more.   https://thehornnews.com/exposed-2-1-million-illegal-votes-cast-election/

Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.
Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.
After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Prior to that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.

About Education 3

This cartoon seems to catch the gist of today's college education.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/08/25/higher-education/ 
This school district is more interested in propagandizing children than their role of teaching children how to read, write, science, math, social studies and how to learn and think for themselves. That is not what liberals want.  They want to teach children WHAT to think.   http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/top-u-s-school-district-to-indoctrinate-teachers-against-israel/
If you do not think public education is not much more than a hot bed for liberal propaganda then consider this teacher's blatant left wing bias.  She is not a teacher. She is a public employee paid with tax money and yet she spews leftist hate.   http://conservativetribune.com/teacher-under-fire-trump/?
It is hard to refute that the decadence that has infested the thinking of the political left is inexorably leading us down a devious path sure to destroy the cultural and moral fabric of our nation.  This is one leg of their approach that includes the nation's public schools.  While this is just a quiz the broader implications for collecting and polling for such information are disturbing.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/09/revolt-over-schools-outrageous-drug-and-sex-quiz/
The liberal controlled world of education is destroying free speech, American history, civics, logic and more setting up students to embrace socialism.  Students entering colleges and universities at these hot beds of progressive liberalism are ready for the indoctrination educated but ignorant propagandists dish out.  Quote: "These students have been raised in an academic culture that has increasingly characterized speech as violence. Academia has worked very hard to produce these students, and they have unleashed them on a public that simply wants to be left alone, by and large, to live their lives and care for their families. It is these 1-in-5 students who are responding to the Craigslist ads for political agitators, some of whom are masquerading as right-wing groups just to make sure the story comes off in the desired way when the local news crew arrives. This is why Donald Trump has floated the idea of depriving colleges of public funding if they continue to strangle conservative voices on campus. In the face of growing political violence in our institutions of higher learning, we find that idea to be as appropriate as it is non-violent."    http://www.libertyplanet.com/articles/college-students-support-violence-to-silence-conservative-speakers/   Far too many administrators and faculty at colleges and universities subscribe to progressive and socialist dogma and proceed to indoctrinate their ideology into the heads of innocent students.  That is not their job.
Anyone who thinks that our colleges and universities are filled with sound of mind educated intellectuals really need to re-evaluate their position. In fact far too many are overeducated pseudo intellectuals void of the ability to think logically.  This piece explains. http://americanactionnews.com/articles/university-believing-in-hard-work-is-a-racial-microaggression
This piece deals with our nation's dying public education system.  Quote: "It’s no secret that the American education system is failing. The evidence is plain as college students extol socialism but then can’t describe what it means. SAT scores are tanking even as high school grades are on the rise thanks to the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality of many teachers.  Of course, critics of higher education culture have known this for years. But how did we get here? Following are three of the largest problems facing the system that is meant to prepare young adults to run the world but is instead turning out intellectual dwarfs."    http://www.libertyplanet.com/articles/three-reasons-why-our-educational-system-is-failing/
Walter Williams has a knack for telling the truth.  Quote: "How is it that every student I saw had an iPhone in their hand, despite being desperately poor? Epic failure doesn’t sufficiently describe West Philly High. All the money in the world will not cure cultural degradation, political corruption and learned ignorance. Based on the latest national SAT results, our public educational system is a continued failure, despite spending over $15,000 per student per year. The more we spend educating our children the dumber they get. It almost appears like the goal of the government is to matriculate functionally illiterate, socially programmed, materialistic, consumer automatons into society."  And, "Despite denials by black leaders, Democrat politicians, social justice warriors, and delusional deniers, there is a direct correlation between educational success and fatherless families. The SAT scores by race tell the story. Only 20% of blacks and 31% of Latinos reach the already pitifully low averages for SAT scores. Do you think the fact 73% of black children are born out of wedlock versus 17% of Asian children has anything to do with these results? Two parent families provide an environment more conducive to educational achievement and higher lifetime earnings. That is an unequivocal fact."    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/10/08/30-blocks-of-back-to-school/

This is totally sick.  Teaching children about sharia law.  The entertainment industry is drifting into horrible territory.  Quote: "Many Americans are concerned about Sharia, yet no one expected Sharia to creep into our children shows. American non-profit Sesame Workshop is adding a Muslim character to the Afghan version of their hit show Sesame Street. The character wears traditional Islamic garb a preaches Sharia law to children."    https://www.teaparty.org/watch-famous-childrens-show-busted-preaching-sharia-law-kids-watch-253260/ 
If this is not school forcing liberal propaganda on children I don't know what is.  Quote: "Let's start here. In 2016, as US News reports, "The Portland Public Schools Board on Tuesday decided to ban any classroom materials that cast doubt on climate change. The resolution passed unanimously and requires that textbooks and other material purchased by the district present climate change as a fact rather than theory. Material will also need to present human activity as one of the phenomenon's causes."   https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/07/21/why-i-love-schools-that-ban-books/    This illustrates how close minded liberal are.  Any idea they do not promote is not worth teaching.  They hate anyone or anything that does not fit within their own version of reality. No ideas or notions they have not blessed are permitted. How self righteous, hypocritical and dishonest they are.

About Education 2

This educator warns parents that leftist thinking and deviant sex is being taught to school kids. Quote: "In his latest book, “The Corrupt Classroom,” Lance Izumi lays out evidence that public schools across the nation have been systematically taken over. Izumi is the Senior Director of Education Policy at the Pacific Research Institute Izumi’s book proves that parents, “are rightly concerned about the growing politicization of the classroom.” His book details how, “political bias is becoming systemic in public school systems and has turned many public schools into indoctrination centers for progressive ideologies and causes.”  Izumi highlighted the example of Yvette Felarca. Felarca, the leader of By Any Means Necessary, a militant and radical group and a teacher at a middle school has been in the news and is seen making efforts to “galvanize a series of counter-protests in her hometown of Berkeley, California, against conservative figures.”  Izumi notes, “Felarca reportedly shoved a man to the ground at a demonstration in Sacramento,” Izumi explains. “The brawl resulted in seven people being stabbed. Felarca told the Mercury News that the First Amendment should not protect speech with which she disagrees and that she labels ‘hate speech. He also citied instances where students were required to complete explicitly partisan and anti-Christian assignments. “Just as parents do not like teachers and school officials to favor one political candidate over another, so parents oppose the promotion of one religious faith over another,” Izumi says. “Yet, in public schools across America, teaching, curricula, and policies seem intended to disfavor Christianity and favor other religious faiths. He also warned of the LGBT agenda – to turn children into sexual objects. Izumi warns that schools are teaching and advocating for advanced and deviant sexual practices, under the guise of “health classes.” In one instance, a ninth-grader teacher in Fremont, Calif. distributed content that discussed vibrators, oral sex, female sterilization and other sexual techniques, Izumi wrote, “Not surprisingly, the textbook ignited outrage among parents in the school district, despite the socially liberal reputation of the San Francisco Bay Area,” and that, “Hundreds of people signed a petition to urge the Fremont school board to rescind its decision to use the textbook in ninth-grade health classes.”      http://libertynewsnow.com/education-professional-issues-urgent-warning-parents/article7975
Far too much of this leftist filthy trash designed to influence our nation's children to join them in their decrepit and amoral lifestyle.  They have no class, no decency, no ethics, no morals.  They only have things in mind that make them feel good.  The whole lot of those perpetrating this kind of stuff have lost sight of the good that is morality, ethics, decency, civility, honesty, manners, and so much more.  One does not have to look far to see the ugliness progressivism has visited upon us and the culprits who are responsible that embrace the horrific cultural Marxism dogma.  We know where and who they are.  They know too but do not care what we think.   http://www.dailywire.com/news/22157/racy-federal-public-school-survey-asks-10-year-amanda-prestigiacomo?
Far too many within the public education system have lost their way.  Quote: "It started out as a bold idea. It was going to take some of America's best and brightest, convince them to work as a teacher for just two years with some of the kids most in need of quality education and positive role models, and begin the process of radically changing the face of public education. Teach for America started out as a radical idea that tipped over the apple cart of traditional education -- but now? Now it's just another mouthpiece for leftist education rhetoric."  And, "Judging by its interventions in recent debates, it isn’t all that clear that senior TFA executives still believe this. These days, TFA’s voice on charters, accountability, and curricular rigor is decidedly muffled. Such education-reform essentials have been eclipsed in TFA’s discourse by immigration, policing, “queer” and transgender-identity issues, and other left-wing causes. TFA’s message seems to be that until numerous other social ills are cured—until immigration is less restricted, policing becomes more gentle, and poverty is eliminated—an excellent education will elude the poor. That was the status-quo defeatism TFA originally set out to challenge." And, "Leftists view education as their sole domain, and they want no one but fellow travelers stepping into their protected waters."    https://pjmedia.com/parenting/teach-america-focused-improving-education-lost-way/
Charter schools make schools nearby better.  Know why?  Because they have to compete and that's a good thing.   http://freebeacon.com/issues/charter-schools-boost-performance-nearby-schools/?

Many of our nation's schools are intentionally dumbing down students.  Been doing so for a long time.  Quote: "It’s no surprise to hear that America’s education system is in disarray, with Common Core dumbing down young students, faith absent from education and underpaid teachers increasingly unfit to serve as effective educators.  But all of that is by design, contends Alex Newman, an international journalist and co-author of “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children.” He recently appeared on the “Revealing the Truth with Rabbi Walker” Web TV show to discuss the issue. Newman believes the government education system is not built to educate but to create obedient, unlearned drones who are subservient to authority. “It’s really the education system that is at the foundation of what eventually emerges as culture, politics, government and all the rest of it,” Newman began. “Education is where we went wrong, so if we’re going to fix this, education is the place to be involved.” Newman was educated at an array of top private schools but realizes his academic upbringing was irregular."     It’s no surprise to hear that America’s education system is in disarray, with Common Core dumbing down young students, faith absent from education and underpaid teachers increasingly unfit to serve as effective educators."    http://www.wnd.com/2017/08/government-schools-intentionally-making-children-dumber/

About Education 1

Finally some good news on the education front.  The people are rising up against the Common Core disaster.   http://www.libertyheadlines.com/rebellion-common-core-cursive-makes-comeback/?
Attorney General Sessions is absolutely right.  Quote: "The Justice Department is ramping up its support for students who sue universities claiming their free-speech rights have been violated — including conservatives "who've been silenced in many ways," Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday. In an interview on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Sessions elaborated on a DOJ effort he unveiled to an invitation-only crowd earlier Tuesday at Georgetown University's law school. "Too much suppression of free and open speech on college campuses today," Sessions said. "Particularly conservatives being silenced in many ways. "Controversial speakers are being blocked. You have the veto by the heckler, who threatens to protest and disrupt the speech so the college may withdraw the speaker's invitation so they won't be a disturbance. These kinds of things really threaten the entire educational system in my view, the integrity of it." "We have a heritage of free speech," he continued. "It's in our Constitution, it's deeply embedded in our whole approach to life and we need to push back so we are going to push back." Sessions said the focus will be on "public institutions." http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/jeff-sessions-suppression-free-speech-campuses/2017/09/26/id/815952/? 
More from AG Jeff Sessions.  The proof of what he says is the sick display of pampered leftist academics and students.  Their childish and irresponsible nonsense has got to stop.  Quote: "Attorney General Jeff Sessions had some strong words for college students all around the country during his address to Georgetown University Law Center. “Freedom of thought and speech on the American campus are under attack,” he said. “The American university was once the center of academic freedom — a place of robust debate, a forum for the competition of ideas. But it is transforming into an echo chamber of political correctness and homogenous thought, a shelter for fragile egos.” Dozens of protestors dropped down on one knee prior to Sessions starting his speech. Demonstrators included students and faculty members at Georgetown Law, more than 50 of whom signed an open letter opposing the AG’s policies. Ironically, their display demonstrated exactly what the nation’s top cop was referring to."    http://www.conservativezone.com/articles/ag-jeff-sessions-tells-college-students-to-grow-up/
Higher education has reached a new low. Quote: " Parents who continue to send their children to college and alumni who continue to contribute to colleges should have their heads examined.  We've gone way beyond "this is embarrassing."     http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/10/the_fall_of_higher_education.html
This short piece by Walter Williams is a real education. He addresses 5 illogical and stupid ideas taught by so called academics at our nation's colleges and universities.  These people are part of the problem.  What so many are doing is using their captive audience platform to dumb down students they are suppose to teach to think for themselves and expand their understanding across a broad spectrum of ideas.   http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/5-stupid-ideas-still-taught-on-campus/  Instead of doing their historical mission they are propagandizing their illogical socialistic, progressive and destructive leftist nonsense.
The federal government should get out of the education business.  As with everything else it gets involved in it screws things up.  Quote: "The fact that we celebrate the Every Student Succeeds Act for shifting education policy back to the states is an alarming indicator of federal dysfunction. Instead of rejoicing about a reduced extent of unauthorized federal meddling in state affairs, we should work to remove the heavy hand of centralized government entirely from every sphere in which it has no legitimate authority.  A quick visit to the U.S. Department of Education’s website reveals just how thoroughly the feds have burst the seams of their constitutional pants. There we find the agency reminding states about deadlines for submitting “State plans” for education – creating the distinct impression that it possesses some broad power to oversee education policy nationwide."    https://www.conventionofstates.com/how_bout_zero_federal_control_of_schools? 
This item describes just how far to the left the politics of our college and university administrations and faculties have gone.  Two desenting professors wrote an article lamenting the cultural decline that is destroying the country.  Hoards of radical leftist professors were outraged at the exposed truth and called out the two truth tellers. Those very leftist professors are a huge part of the problem and are too arrogant and self righteous to see much less understand that truth.  Quote: "But while Professors Wax and Alexander triggered faculty and student hysteria, most Americans today, and certainly past generations, would consider their points uncontroversial to the point of truism.  A recent Gallup survey, for instance, found that a 62% to 38% majority of Americans believe in "the opportunity for a person in this nation to get ahead by working hard."  And that's after nearly eight years of the most sluggish economic cyclical recovery in U.S. history under Barack Obama.  Basic demographic and sociological data undergird Professors Wax and Alexander as well.  According to U.S. Census, the likelihood of living in poverty in America approaches zero if a person does three simple things:  (1) stay out of prison, (2) graduate high school and (3) avoid having children outside of marriage. That's obviously not to condemn or morally judge those who falter on any of those categories.  All humans are fallible, and America is the land of second, third, fourth and innumerable chances.  Moreover, a small number of people are unable to satisfy those requisites.  Professors Wax and Alexander themselves stress that exceptions exist, and they avoid moral condemnation of individuals.  That said, the real-world statistics are what they are, and they establish the validity of the professors' commentary. It's also false, by the way, for offended faculty and students to claim that unwed motherhood is a longstanding byproduct of racism.  As Dr. Thomas Sowell (himself African-American) has emphasized, U.S. Census data "going back a hundred years, when blacks were just one generation out of slavery ... showed that a slightly higher percentage of black adults had married than white adults.  This fact remained true in every census from 1890 to 1940."  Meanwhile, colleges often fail in their fundamental duty of educating students to become informed, productive citizens."   http://cfif.org/v/index.php/commentary/48-education/3756-college-faculties-advocating-self-discipline-is-now-discriminatory   Progressivism/political leftists have over a long period of time systematically destroyed the cultural and moral values that built our nation.  Academia has played a huge role in the commission of that crime.

This is a most interesting view of the Trump presidency and the changing attitudes of the American public.  Quote: "National-security threats are imminent, but liberalism is destructing the U.S. from within, Gorka said. “Andrew Breitbart was so right when he said, politics is downstream from culture. The rot begins with culture. When we, we the conservatives, surrendered the high schools and colleges to the radicals. When people like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn – terrorists can become tenured professors, God protect those poor students. When we allowed them to fill that vacuum, we surrendered the culture wars to the left – to the readers of Saul Alinsky, to the crypto-Marxists, to the crypto-Maoists. But don’t worry what happened on November 8th? The outsider won.” Leftists are losing the culture war, Gorka argued, despite being pervasive in Hollywood, the music industry, the mainstream media and academia."    http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/sebastian-gorka-identifies-top-3-threats-to-america/   Recent events may well portend the truth of Gorka's comments. We can all hope so. Our job is to promote conservative values and reject those of the political left. If you think that PBS is unbiased read what they used our tax payer monies for. Quote: "The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), recently released yat another documentary deeply critical of Trump’s Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) head, Scott Pruitt. The Frontline Documentary, entitled “War on The EPA,” paints Pruitt as an environment-destroying pawn of big oil interests. PBS’s documentary was heartily praised by radical environmental groups like the Sierra Club, but this should come as no surprise, since it relied heavily on Obama-era EPA officials and numerous other radical climate extremists. Gina McCarthy, Obama’s EPA Administrator, who oversaw the systemic destruction of the coal industry in red states – which resulted in mass unemployment and destitution across huge swaths of rural America – was a prime contributor to PBS’s partisan report."      http://libertynewsnow.com/trumps-epa-attack-taxpayer-funded-pbs/article8057     They continue their practice of serving as the propaganda arm of the liberal/progressive agenda using tax payer monies to do so.  Their ethics and data gathering skills are atrocious.
Democrats tend to do idiot things.  You would think State Attorney Generals would know what a Supreme Court ruling means.  Apparently not.  Quote: "Beltway Democrats never tire of telling us that Obamacare is “the law of the land.” It appears, however, that their state level accomplices failed to get the news. One day after the White House announced that cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers would stop, Democrat attorneys general from 18 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit for the purpose of forcing the Trump administration to pay the subsidies. A federal court has ruled these CSR payments unconstitutional, and the U.S. Attorney General has concluded that they violate the statute itself. Thus, Trump is merely upholding the law.  So, if Obamacare is the law of the land and the President is studiously upholding it, what’s the problem? For the 19 AGs involved, as with Democrats everywhere, it’s all about the Benjamins. If they abide by the text of the “Affordable Care Act,” they will lose a chance to pick the taxpayer’s pocket for $7 billion a year. Given the choice between pulling off such a lucrative heist and following the letter of the law, no Democrat breathing would follow the latter course. The AGs don’t admit that, of course. Instead, their complaint resorts to the tried and true tactic of pretending that the law doesn’t mean what it says."   https://spectator.org/dems-sue-trump-for-abiding-by-obamacare-on-subsidies/?

Does Trump deserve the criticism of political leftist to his response to Puerto Rico's hurricane needs?  Of course not.  They spew fake news because they hate him. Far too many Democrats are simply hateful. The US House representative from Puerto Rico offers "high praise" for what he had his administration do.

A good idea that would probably work.  Call off the drug war and see what happens. It would probably be much like when prohibition was stopped.     https://fee.org/articles/gun-violence-would-plummet-if-we-just-called-off-the-drug-war/?

Just another one of Obama's many blunders.  He sent five jihadists back to the fight against us for this one now admitted traitor.   http://americanactionnews.com/articles/developing-traitor-taliban-bowe-goes-to-prison  Obama hailed this traitor as a hero.   http://www.dailywire.com/news/22305/breaking-alleged-traitor-hailed-american-hero-ben-shapiro?

I wonder what rabid feminist's think about this?  Given their left leaning liberal mindset it is hard to understand their placid acceptance of Muslim men treating the women around them like chattle. Janet Jackson was married to one for five years and didn't like it. https://conservativetribune.com/janet-jackson-muslim-husband/?   Is it fair to say that liberal feminists are total hypocrites?

The UN is in a really bad place right now.  They have no ethics, no morals, no understanding of humanity and certainly have no standing to tell anyone what to think, what to say, what to do or even how to treat children.  But they are trying the best to screw up families and their children.  The organizations and corporations that abide their nonsense are just as bad.    http://americanactionnews.com/articles/famous-cartoon-set-to-become-gender-balanced-after-approving-u-n-makeover
