Smugglers leave Mexican woman dangling from border fence

Wed, 07/12/2017 - 2:09am

NOGALES, Ariz. – Smugglers left a 37-year-old Mexican woman hanging from the border fence near Nogales on Saturday night, authorities said.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said agents spotted the woman “precariously dangling from the international border fence,” according to KTVK-TV.

“Agents patrolling the border east of Nogales witnessed two smugglers attempting to lower the woman into the United States from Mexico using a harness and hoist rope,” CBP said in a news release. “When agents approached, the woman attempted to climb back over the fence into Mexico but the smugglers left her hanging.”

The Nogales Fire Department was called in to get the woman down.

She was uninjured and is now facing immigration violations.

What you need to know about the ‘Jayden K Smith’ Facebook message

Wed, 07/12/2017 - 12:58am

Did you get a message warning to not accept friend requests from someone named Jayden K Smith? The Telegraph reports that the message is a hoax. Well meaning users are sharing the warning but there is no evidence of hacking. The issues is that you can’t break into someone’s account by simply becoming their friend.

The message looks like this: “Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship request. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. ”

Mass friend requests are flagged by Facebook as spam. So it is unlikely that anyone using a single account would use this as a method to hack millions of people. It is also against the social network’s terms and conditions so the offending account would be easily dealt with.

The Independent reports that you shouldn’t just accept all friend requests.  A hacker can’t access your password by simply becoming your friend but they can get a lot of information about you.  Be careful who you accept as a friend because they can potentially see your personal information like address, date of birth or phone number.

You should ignore the request to share this warning. Messages like this get recycled from time to time. They often contain elements like sensational warnings with devastating consequences and a prompt to share the message with everyone. Past warnings include names like Bobby Roberts, Anwar Jitou, and Tanner Dwyer.

Oregon bill will reduce punishments for possession of heroin, cocaine other drugs

Tue, 07/11/2017 - 11:32pm

First-time offenders caught with small amounts of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines and other illegal drugs will face less jail time and smaller fines under a new bill approved by the Oregon legislature that aims to curb mass incarceration.

The Oregon legislature passed a bill late last week that reclassifies possession of several drugs from a felony to a misdemeanor, reducing the punishments and expanding access to drug treatment for people without prior felonies or convictions for drug possession. Oregon lawmakers hope to encourage drug users to seek help rather than filling up the state’s prisons as an epidemic of abuse spreads.

We are trying to move policy toward treatment rather than prison beds,” said state Sen. Jackie Winters, R, co-chair of the public safety committee and a supporter of the bill. “We can’t continue on the path of building more prisons when often the underlying root cause of the crime is substance use.”

The bill also attempts to reduce racial profiling via data collection and analysis to help police departments understand when their policies or procedures result in disparities.

If signed into law, Oregon would be among just a few states that have reduced punishments for possession of small amounts of some illicit drugs, what some call the “decriminalization” of drug possession. Proponents say the bill marks a significant step toward addressing racial disparities in incarceration that developed as a result of the “war on drugs” approach to crime. The bill reflects a wider trend in which many states struggling to manage the opioid addiction crisis are working to treat drug abuse more as a public health concern than a criminal matter.

In Oregon, several law enforcement agencies worked with lawmakers to craft portions of the bill.

“Too often, individuals with addiction issues find their way to the doorstep of the criminal justice system when they are arrested for possession of a controlled substance,” Kevin Campbell, executive director of the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police, wrote in a letter of support for the bill. “Unfortunately, felony convictions in these cases also include unintended and collateral consequences including barriers to housing and employment and a disparate impact on minority communities.”

Despite garnering support from law enforcement agencies and advocacy groups, the majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate voted against the bill, as did some Democrats.

“I fully support the collection of data to monitor racial profiling, but I am opposed to reducing drug classification,” state Rep. Alan Olson, R, wrote in a recent newsletter to his constituents. His attitude toward the bill was shared among many in the legislature, including some Democrats.

State Sen. Betsy Johnson, D, who voted against the bill, argues that downgrading drug possession is misguided and represents a “hug-a-thug policy” in which legislatures are soft of crime in an effort to reform the prison system.

An Enemy’s Call to ‘Push Back’

Tue, 07/11/2017 - 11:09pm

“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance…”
– Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s 2009 words when giving his first selling out of America speech in Cairo, Egypt, repeated again when Imam Khalid Latif and muslima Linda Sarsour welcomed him to their mosque

Tolerance…a word that in today’s world seems to come in degrees for what one group of people deems tolerable another group of people deems not to be societal norms. And such is the case with the islamic concept of jihad for while the muslim world deems jihad an act they are commanded to do as laid down in the (un)holy qur’an…an act sometimes referred to as the ‘sixth pillar of islam’…the civilized world rightfully deems jihad an act of violence, savagery, and barbarism committed in the name of the false god known as allah.

And while to muslims the concept of jihad is both a physical struggle against the tangible here and now enemies of islam while at the same time being a spiritual struggle within oneself against sin, unfortunately, as now witnessed almost on a daily basis, the spiritual struggle within oneself more times than not manifests itself as a bloody fight against all who do not believe. In fact, fundamentalists, terrorists, so-called ‘lone wolves’ and those too cowardly to actually bloody their hands but who love to instigate those that do, have all adopted the term ‘jihad’ as the blanket under which their murderous intentions lie.

So the now-called ‘jihadis’ relish in using muhammed’s philosophies and the tenets of islam itself to justify what amounts to a holy war…a clash of civilizations…as well as being their excuse to target innocent civilians…for the very words of the qur’an make it clear that self-defense against islam’s enemies and nonbelievers coupled with the always ongoing command to perpetrate islam comes before any and everything except for complete subjugation to allah that is.

And these self-perceived holy warriors of sorts have now embedded themselves within the populace of our country as well with some laying low while waiting for their call to jihad and with others now being vocal… stirring the pot for what will come next. Such is the case with American muslima Linda Sarsour, a so vile excuse of a woman who has called for both jihad against President Trump and his administration, and for muslims everywhere not to assimilate into the society of any of their host countries for to do so, as per her extremist beliefs, goes against everything the qur’an stands for, mandates, and expects of those who believe.

“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged; and verily, Allah is most powerful for their aid.” – qur’an 22:39

Linda Sarsour is a Brooklyn born Palestinian-American self-proclaimed political and civil rights activist and community organizer; an active member of C.A.I.R and the former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York; and a Muslim Brotherhood foot-soldier if you will.

Linda Sarsour is a Jew-hating supporter of the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement against the State of Israel; was the controversial CUNY graduation speaker with terrorist ties; remains a supporter of convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh who was deported from the U.S. for immigration fraud and who was convicted by Israeli courts for her role in the murder of two students in the 1969 Jerusalem supermarket bombing; and is a vocal in your face faux-feminist proponent of sharia law (wonder if this muslima supports FGM).

Linda Sarsour loves nothing better than to play the victim…and was the woman who co-chaired the 2017 Women’s March in Washington D.C…a march held not to promote women’s rights but to actually protest against the election of Donald Trump…a march replete with pink p**** cat ears and clueless liberal women dressed up as vaginas.

And if that is not enough to expose Linda Sarsour as the ultimate attention craving, self-promoting, muslima publicity whore that she is, two weekends ago Sarsour spoke at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Chicago, where she called for outright jihad against President Trump and his administration.

Saying, “I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad. That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or in the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House,” Sarsour went on to say, “Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community, it is not to assimilate and please any other people and authority,” and that “Our obligation is to our young people, is to our women, to make sure our women are protected in our community.”

Finishing this part of her speech with the words, “Our top priority and even higher than all those other priorities is to please Allah and only Allah,” Linda Sarsour removed any remaining doubts as to who she is and what she stands for…a true jihadi hell-bent on doing all she can to help implode our nation from within by stirring up muslims and their kumbaya liberal cohorts to help move the islamic agenda and caliphate building forward.

“Do not criticize me when I say that we as a Muslim community in these United States of America have to be perpetually outraged,” Sarsour said later on in her speech, but there is a huge difference between simply being “outraged” over something and calling for “jihad” against the President of these United States, especially when one calls for America’s muslim communities to “push back” against what she calls both the anti-muslim policies of the Trump administration and the (I believe rightful) rise in anti-muslim sentiment around the country.

See Linda Sarsour’s entire speech including her call to jihad here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0tr0CFik2k

“Push back”…true tangible fighting words for sure… words spoken for all to hear and then digest even as Sarsour is now trying to claim that she was speaking but metaphorically against both a man and an administration she deems “relentless, persistent and consistent” in their goal to oppress muslims in the U.S.

And while some on the left will say that Sarsour’s words were just that…metaphorical words…said for attention and sensationalism to help paint muslims in role of hapless victims, but if truth be told words once spoken no matter their intent cannot be called back neither can past actions taken for together they show Linda Sarsour’s true attempt to mainstream violence as the new accepted norm…to mainstream both the concept and acceptance of jihad into becoming part of the fabric of our everyday American society. And sadly while we watch her scenario unfold, lost to many is the fact that Sarsour is doing so by using our own Constitution against us as.

Let me explain. In Sarsour’s calling for “jihad” against President Trump…in Sarsour’s calling for a muslim “push back”…she forgets the all-important words of the First Amendment…“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances…”

And she also forgets or willingly ignores the words of 18 U.S. Code § 2385 – Advocating Overthrow of Government...”Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government… Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence…”

Need I go on…I think not for when one calls for “jihad” against the president and his administration (and that muslima meant every word she said in the context she said it in) the fact remains that Sarsour’s now media-driven ‘metaphorical’ talking points nonsense is but taqiyya in action. And when one calls for an organized “push back” against those perceived to have committed a wrong or a slight that never was…one is in violation of both the Constitution and the above stated U.S. Code, and one must be called to task for it.

And such is the case with Linda Sarsour…whose last name she freely admits means ‘cockroach’ in Arabic which, by the way, I find very apropos…the women who just now is starting to find out that the very anti-American, anti-Trump hate speech and rhetoric she so loves to spew out does come with consequences as it is not protected under the ‘free speech’ clause in the Constitution for nowhere in the Constitution does it allow speech that espouses the use of jihad for anything.

In fact, the First Amendment does not protect all types of speech contrary to what many believe for the concept of free speech does not mean that individuals are free to say anything that they want to say. For example, Sarsour’s ‘so-called’ fighting words…as in “jihad” and “push back”…spoken in the very context of which they were said…are not protected speech as the language used was meant to incite a specific group of people (in this case muslims) towards violence…towards sedition…no matter that some…both muslims and Westerners…still continue to debate the semantics of the word ‘jihad.’

But as far as I’m concerned the meaning of ‘jihad’ is obvious as per the bloody killing fields of the Middle East and to a lesser extend of Europe…killing fields littered with over a half a million dead bodies.

Also not protected is speech that constitutes a threat towards another person or persons for it places a figurative bullseye of bodily harm or death upon said persons. And ISIS-supporting Linda Sarsour’s very call for jihad against both President Trump himself and his administration was indeed intended to commit violence against his person, and surely is the epitome of speech not legally protected under the First Amendment or protected under anything else for that matter.

And so Linda Sarsour…a repugnant and ever so vile muslima and jihadi…must be stopped before her call to jihad is indeed carried out…carried out not by her cowardly self of course…but by one of her brainwashed followers or leftist liberal groupies if you will. But even with all I have said, we all know that if you or I were to say the words Sarsour said we would be in jail by now. However, in the name of political correctness, islamic appeasement and condoning…all things Barack HUSSEIN Obama set in motion…there now exists a double standard of sorts in regards to what muslims in our country can or cannot say or do…a double standard where the enemy is not to be feared and where those once thought of as friends become the purveyors of hate.

But the indisputable fact is that muslima Linda Sarsour spoke the words “jihad” and “push back” willingly, deliberately, and with malice with one goal in mind…to try to divide her American-muslin audience into two camps…those standing with her extremist views and ways vs those against her extremist views and ways. And that very goal can be witnessed by her words, “You can count on me to use my voice to stand up, not only to people outside our community who are repressing our communities but those inside our communities who aid and abet the oppressors outside our community.”

In other words, anything Linda Sarsour, who less than a year ago was someone no one had ever heard of, has now through calculatingly clever self-promotion grown strong enough to threaten both Islam’s followers and condoners to either stand with her against President Trump and his administration or else face the consequences of her all-consuming hate…tolerance be damned. And know as fact that Linda Sarsour is trying to build her own private army of sorts…an army to rival Hillary’s resistance brigade of snowflakes and sore-losers, and that the Obama loyalists and mainstream media are helping her every step of the way.

Illinois Leftist Democrat Petitions Congress With a Rifle

Tue, 07/11/2017 - 3:34pm

In all the discussion of the shooting during Republican practice for the Congressional baseball game, I was struck by the fact no one thought it odd that none of the other participants tried to help seriously wounded Rep. Steve Scalise to safety.

They knew he was hurt. They saw the trail of blood as he tried to drag himself off the field. But no one went to his aid. Like a herd of wildebeest fleeing a lion attack, the wounded and slow were left behind.

Now that the coast is clear, members of Congress are leaping out of the dugout and discussing ways taxpayers can protect them in the future.

Certainly this unprovoked attack was cowardly, but the fact the victims were politicians doesn’t require mobilizing the nation. I’d feel equally outraged if the Bernie Bro had shot up a gathering of Jaycees — that notorious hatchery of young capitalists.

What I’m trying to do is put the incident in perspective.

Fact is if you were offered a choice between being the cashier in a tow truck facility and a member of Congress, people interested in personal safety should choose Congress. The last member to be killed in an individual attack was Leo Ryan in 1978. Before Scalise was shot, the last member attacked was Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in 2011. Prior to that it was John Stennis in 1973.

Four attacks in 44 years isn’t exactly the definition of danger.

If you’re looking for a “public servant” that’s actually in danger while doing his job, talk to a mailman not a politician.

An intelligent, as opposed to hysterical, response to the shooting confronts taxpayers with a paradox: most individual members of Congress are eminently replaceable mediocrities. It’s only in clumps that congressmen are valuable. I wouldn’t go so far to say the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but you get the idea.

Losing members in bunches of 20 or 30 would convulse the country and subject the remaining members to crippling workloads. Mitch McConnell might have to establish the four–day workweek in the Senate.

So I reluctantly support the security state measures taxpayers are subject to when they enter the Capitol and House or Senate office buildings. Off–Capitol gatherings that attract 20 or more members — say two lobbyists having lunch with an open seat at the table — also deserve enhanced security. But I draw the line at individually assigned protective details.

Naturally that’s exactly what big–government politicians and Democrats too passive to be responsible for their own safety are talking about. Many of the politicians who promise to “fight for you” are seriously considering protective details for every member of Congress. An extravagance Politico calculates would cost over $1 billion.

Instead, I support Rep. Thomas Massie (R–Don’t Tread on Me) who introduced a bill that would require gun–phobic Washington, DC to honor concealed carry permits from other states. This would let DC politicians defend themselves.

Massie explains, “After the horrific shooting at the Republican Congressional Baseball practice, there will likely be calls for special privileges to protect politicians. I do not want to extend a special privilege to politicians, because the right to keep and bear arms is not a privilege, it is a God–given right protected by our Constitution.”

I’d support Massie if the bill only applied to politicians, particularly if the alternative is taxpayer–paid bodyguards. Those micro–potentates don’t need anything else to feed their egos. Why can’t they take their chances with everyday life just like the rest of us?

A Washington Post reporter described an encounter Sen. Orrin Hatch (R–Methuselah). Hatch invaded an elevator with three members of his security detail. The Postie asked whether more of his colleagues should receive security details. Displaying the noblesse oblige that’s made him a byword for the common touch, Hatch replied, “I think all of you deserve protection, too. I think we have to protect everybody.”

No word on whether he offered to detail one of his three bodyguards to accompany the reporter.

Individual security details will soon become 535 mini–motorcades clogging up the nation’s streets in the name of “national security.”

Taxpayers don’t need to harden the DC bubble. Let politicians experience life like the rest of us. The argument is made that these indispensible marshmallows are the nation’s leadership. They get death threats, suffer road rage incidents and people say mean things about them. My response is, so what? I’ve been on the receiving end of all three offenses and I’m not looking for a taxpayer–paid Praetorian Guard.

Harry Truman said if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. My advice to politicians is if you won’t carry the heat, don’t get out of the office.

In The Beginning

Tue, 07/11/2017 - 11:21am

This is the first in a series of articles defining the steps that brought us to our current political situation.

 

In The Beginning in order that we may more closely examine the condition of our current political state of affairs, a brief examination of how things came to be the way they are is merited. First, history tells us that localized anarchy cannot persist for long in areas where resources encourage population density to levels much greater than what those resources will support. In other words, if the area will support a certain number of people, but provide little or no surplus, government need involve little more than informal agreements between neighbors. It is when surpluses arise that certain changes involving more formal agreements, as well as additional arrangements which value, distribute, and defend local resources must be made. Leadership, as well as processes identifying such leadership must be agreed upon and formalized. Needless to say, such agreements have not always been made to the satisfaction of all parties; a condition which persists to this very day. The upshot of these seemingly axiomatic conditions is that the authority to govern requires legitimacy. It is a strange conundrum at first glance. In modern times it is always thought that legitimacy precedes authority, and for good reason, for even as each must wear the mantle of the other, they are not the same, and should authority precede legitimacy, it means that civilization has been lost. Any peace brought about by an authority perceived to be illegitimate will be constantly undermined, and will bear bitter fruit.

 

In the west, as it was in the east, authority was originally established by force of arms. The first group to establish martial supremacy was the Assyrians, who, coming upon the Phoenician coastal cities were paid tribute. The Phoenicians, who were traders conducted their trade by means of building and sailing ships, neither of which was of any interest to the Assyrians, whose main interest was war. For a time anyway. As Assyrian interest in just how lucrative trade was increased however, a strain of the legitimate authority in the Phoenician city state wisely relocated in Africa founding the city state of Carthage. The Phoenicians had acquired the concept of legitimacy through the ideology of divine right during their trading in Greece, Africa, and the Italian peninsula over time, and by the time they had founded Carthage there was a royal succession that, although precarious at times through the ineptitude of governance, provided the stability necessary to provide both peace and commerce, founded on just such a divine right. Meanwhile, in Greece, the religion of the Olympian pantheon had produced Hercules. Like Jesus, Hercules was the son of a god whose mother was human. Unlike Jesus, Hercules was prolific in reproduction, spawning innumerable demigods, a myth that came in handy where force of arms was required to precede or replace legitimate authority, bestowing kinship to the Gods was all that was needed to legitimize the new authority. History soon became rife with refinements of this process of control over legitimacy falling more, and more completely under control of whatever church held sway over the people, ending, insofar as Roman rule was concerned, with the line of Caesar, who had been seen ascending into the heavens after his murder in the forum, thereby guaranteeing his descendants the divine right of rule until A.D. 312 when Constantine founded Christianity as a means of creating a new source of legitimacy with which to justify his martial authority.

 

Fast forward to 1536 when Henry the eighth found his throne to be precarious due to machinations involving the Catholic Church, and powerful factions within England and France. When Henry was faced with the possibility of a debilitating war, or submitting entirely to the will of the church, he simply dissolved the catholic monasteries in England, and strengthened the position of the Anglican Church, a separate religion with its own apostolic succession, and thereby legitimate authority. The Anglican Church, providing a new legitimacy for his authority. The truth is, that outside of religions which rely on concepts of human decency, honor, and concern for the future sustainability of mankind, as well as a set of principles which justify the innate legitimacy of the individual, all modern religions of any importance rely on the legitimacy of the same God. Whatever name He goes by, Islam and Christianity, with their many diverse branches rely on the Jewish God Yahweh to provide real, live, dyed in the wool legitimacy to any ruling authority worth the definition. All other ruling authorities live in the shadow of revolt, or failure of the state over which their authority extends.

 

When we next examine this subject, we shal do so from the perspective of constitutional legitimacy.

Trump’s Middle East doctrine by Admiral James A. Lyons, USN (ret.)

Trump’s Middle East doctrine

A key objective is the isolation of Iran

by Admiral James A. Lyons, USN (ret.)

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Trump’s historic visit last month to Saudi Arabia, where he met with the heads of more than 50 mostly Sunni heads of state, dramatically marked the end of eight years of Barack Obama’s appeasement of Iran. It signaled to all the Muslim leaders that the United States as the “strong horse” is back. There was no doubt in any of the Muslim leaders’ minds that Mr. Trump is a man of action and a leader who will keep his word.

Mr. Trump’s goal of establishing a coalition of nations that share the objective of defeating terrorist groups and providing for a stable and hopeful future made it clear that the assembled nations cannot be indifferent to the presence of evil. That evil is represented not only by the Islamic State (ISIS), al Qaeda et al., but also by Iran, the recognized world leader of state-sponsored terrorism. In that sense, one of the key objectives of the summit was to isolate Iran, a goal embraced by the coalition, as well as their shared disdain for the Obama administration’s atrocious failed nuclear agreement with Iran.

Mr. Trump also made it clear that this coalition of nations must adopt a policy of “sovereign responsibility,” which means that they cannot wait for American power to defeat the enemy for them. They must be directly involved, with our assistance.

Nonetheless, the Trump doctrine must be driven by our core vital interests, which are:

  • Eliminating ISIS as a functioning entity.
  • Preventing Iran from achieving a nuclear weapon capability.
  • Preventing Iranian hegemony throughout the Middle East.
  • Removing the Iranian theocracy from power.
  • Re-establishing and strengthening our relations with our traditional allies.
  • Ensuring the survival of Israel.
  • Establishing a sovereign Kurdistan.
  • Maintaining freedom of navigation throughout the Persian Gulf and Red Sea, including strategic choke points, e.g., the Suez Canal, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Strait of Hormuz.

The establishment of a Global Terrorism Center for Combating Extremism in Riyadh was a manifestation of the shared objective of defeating terrorist groups and isolating Iran, but its effectiveness will depend on results. The same can be said for the establishment of the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center, co-chaired by the United States and Saudi Arabia, as well as the United States-United Arab Emirates Center to Counter the Online Spread of Hate. It was clear to all the attendees that a peaceful, stable future can only be achieved by defeating the ideology that drives terrorism. Carrying this out will require some very fundamental and painful changes. For example, mosques and imams that preach hate and urge all Muslims to conduct violent jihad should be closed and the imams removed.

Concrete steps must be taken to stop funds from going to radical mosques and front groups that promote terrorism. Targeting funds being sent to various terrorist groups, e.g., ISIS and al Qaeda, must receive immediate priority. The source of these funds, be it from individuals or states like Qatar, must be identified and interdicted.

Qatar has been a particular problem because of its support of the Muslim Brotherhood and its cozy relationship with Iran. This came to a head on June 5, when Saudi Arabia broke diplomatic and some commercial relations with Qatar over its terrorist financing and its links to the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Hamas and the Houthi rebels in Yemen. Qatar’s relationship with Iran was a decisive factor in causing the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain to quickly join with Saudi Arabia in breaking relations. Most land, sea, and air routes to Qatar have been closed. Qatar is an isthmus whose only land route is through Saudi Arabia by which it receives 40 percent of its food. This is a major problem for Qatar, despite Turkey’s offer of food and water delivered by sea.

Another issue that must be addressed is the U.S. Central Command’s forward air base in Qatar, which has been an essential element of our air campaign in the region. As of today, there has been no impact on U.S. air operations, but contingency plans should be made ready for an alternative air base if regional relationships further deteriorate.

An underlying element of the Trump doctrine that cannot be overstated is recognition that 65 percent of the population of the Middle East is under the age of 30, and that those youths must be provided with opportunities for a satisfying life as an attractive option to the lure of terrorist groups. While this is a worthy objective, Muslims don’t commit to jihad because they don’t have jobs. They commit to jihad because they are devout Muslims, many with university degrees. The only way they can be dissuaded from jihad is to see a crushing defeat of jihadis on the battlefield. Once they understand they cannot win, they are obligated by their own doctrine to back off.

Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman is taking the lead for economic and cultural reform in Saudi Arabia, and other members of the coalition should follow. Nevertheless, the indispensable principle for achieving the objectives of the Riyadh summit is the isolation of Iran, the prime mover of instability throughout the region. As a start, sanctions on the mullahs’ ballistic missile programs must be imposed. Further, until the unsigned nuclear weapons deal with Iran is formally canceled, real inspections by the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency must be conducted on all the sites in their nuclear weapon infrastructure.

Finally, an aggressive plan must be developed with the objective of removing the regime of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei from power. That is the first principle of any plan to return stability and peace to the Middle East.

Brain-eating amoeba found in Louisiana drinking water, officials say

Sat, 07/08/2017 - 4:36am

Traces of a deadly brain-eating amoeba were found in a water system in a parish in Louisiana this month, but officials said the water is safe to consume.

The brain-eating amoeba, called Naegleria fowleri is a “single-celled living organism found in warm freshwater and soil,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The amoeba spawns primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), an infection in the brain that causes the eradication of brain tissue.

The Louisiana Department of Health told water and town officials Thursday that the amoeba was detected in Terrebonne Parish, according to the New York Post. In a statement, the Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Water District 1 said the amoeba was found in “our ACR-182, last fire hydrant on Island Road.”

The water district said the organism was found in the same location that also tested positive in Aug. 2015.

“We changed disinfectants on June 12, 2017, to a free chlorine, and will remain on free chlorine until September 1, 2017,” the statement said.

The office confirmed that the water is safe to drink but cautioned residents not to let the water go up their nose.

Not Holding My Breath

Sat, 07/08/2017 - 12:49am

She has agreed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee sometime this month, but she agreed to do so only behind closed doors. And if you believe her claim that it’s because of national security concerns I’ve got some swampland to sell you.

And so the 2016 presidential election is now one for the history books….exciting, intriguing, yet downright dirty and vile…with a cast of characters even the best novelist could not make up. And now with the passage of time helping to prove that the media driven ‘Russia did it’ hacking scenario was nothing but sore losers grasping at straws, certain key players in that election’s cast of characters continue to stand out…that is in addition to Hillary Clinton of course…one of which is former F.B.I. Director James Comey…the very man given the task to find the leakers turned out to be the leaker himself.

James Comey…a key player for sure but not ‘the’ key player no matter his recent testimony before the House Intelligence Committee where he stated that he was “concerned” about preserving the integrity of the F. B.I. But how concerned could Comey really be when it was he who cowardly leaked, via a third party, a certain memo to the New York Times concerning what was a private conversation between himself and President Trump.

“Concerned”…I think not for James Comey knew well that he himself, as a government employee, composed said memo on a government computer and that he did so while on the government time clock. And Comey knew that his actions were violating the Records Act and presidential confidentiality…and he knew that said memo was technically not only the property of the U.S. government but property of ‘We the People’ as well.

The only two things James Comey was concerned about was first, protecting his charge Hillary Clinton from prosecution and second, to protect his own sorry-self by exposing the very person behind what he saw as his prime mistake made… that being last July 5th’s press conference he had no authority to hold…a press conference where he stated that while Hillary herself made numerous “mistakes”…felonies actually…in how she handled and disseminated classified information that “no reliable prosecutor would bring such a case” and that he recommended “no criminal charges are appropriate in this case” due to “lack of intent.” 

See Comey’s entire press conference here:

“Lack of intent” regarding Hillary Clinton I think not for the ‘mother’ of the snowflakes… aka the ‘Butcher of Benghazi’…carefully plans to the nth degree both every calculatingly deceptive move she makes and every cover-up needed to mask said move.

So who is the key player in Hillary Clinton’s cast of characters…who is the one James Comey exposed… simply…none other than Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Remember, Comey admitted under oath that Lynch pressured him to downplay the Clinton email server investigation… pressured him after, I believe, Obama ordered her to do so. In fact, during his testimony Comey stated that when he asked Lynch if she was going to authorize him to confirm the existence of the Clinton email investigation, her answer was, “Yes, but don’t call it that. Call it a matter,” and that when he asked why the change of words her response was no response at all just that she repeated “Just call it a matter.” 

This in turn led James Comey to also claim that it was not only Lynch’s pressure over wording but pressure to downplay her secret Phoenix, AZ tarmac meeting with Billy-Boy that forced his hand to hold the aforementioned press conference when he did in an effort to again affirm his “concern” about preserving the independence of the F.B.I.

But when all this is added together certain key facts remain, one of which was that the F.B.I. director was more than willing to be the ‘fall guy’ for Loretta Lynch even after Lynch publicly stated that the law does not require the D.O.J. to pursue criminal charges against Hillary even if Comey recommended they do so. But with Comey being her willing patsy, Loretta Lynch knew well that her words publicly stated were just that… words….words the liberal media would twist into words not said if need be.

And the take-away from James Comey’s testimony is that because of pressure from Loretta Lynch not only did he say that there was “no intent” in Hillary’s actions regarding this “matter,” but that he willingly and with malice obstructed justice by not doing what he knew was the right thing to do…as in recommend to the D.O.J. that they do indict Hillary over her disseminating classified and top secret information via her personal emails.

And with his recommendation made to let Hillary off scot-free…a decision he made right from the start…James Comey directly aided Hillary’s presidential campaign…at least at first that recommendtion did but it rightfully backfired on her as the campaign season moved forward. But make no mistake about it, Hillary knew what the outcome of the “matter” would be even before James Comey’s infamous press conference as she probably worked with Loretta Lynch to dot every ‘i’ and cross every ‘t’ regarding the pressure Lynch was to put on this weak and cowardly man.

And dare we not forget that James Comey also succumbed to pressure when he tried to spin Loretta Lynch’s and Billy-Boy’s tarmac meeting…a meeting that just happened to take place right before the public release of the House Benghazi Committee’s report…a meeting he made out to be nothing but harmless chit-chat about grandkids and golf…a meeting now admitted to having been about national security issues. And Comey knew he again was helping the Hillary campaign on direct orders from Lynch no matter that Bill Clinton was then and still is now a private citizen who had no legal right to be privy to national security issues, as well as his being the husband of the very woman who was the target of a still ongoing criminal investigation.

…Mrs. Lynch was either conflicted or working at odds with the Justice Department and in behalf of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC when she told them to use different terminology for the investigation.” – Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano

So while James Comey ‘s actions both taken and not taken (remember he ‘conveniently’ forgot to record his all-important F.B.I. interview of Hillary Clinton nor did he put her under oath when interviewing her) border on if not cross over into the criminal. And Loretta Lynch, as the orchestrator and ‘strongman’ of all things concerning obstruction of justice, when appearing before the Intelligence Committee later this month must be called to task for her actions…and called to task means she must not be issued a ‘get out of jail free card’ upon pressure that will surely be put on the committee members by either by Obama himself or by proxy through his Democrat flunkies who sit on said committee..

And know that Loretta Lynch…a puppet of both Obama and the Clinton’s…is a spin-meister extraordinaire in her own right. Remember it was Lynch who was the one who was responsible for the perpetrating on the Sunday morning talk show circuit all the Benghazi lies concerning a YouTube video being the cause of it all… lies of course orchestrated by Obama and Hillary…lies told to protect both…especially to protect Hillary as Loretta Lynch’s history with the Clinton’s goes back decades and her loyalty to them seems to be unyielding.

How so…Loretta Lynch hit the national stage in 1999, when she was appointed U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York (EDNY) in Brooklyn by none other than Billy-Boy himself, and was then reappointed to that position by Obama in 2010 before becoming his Attorney General in 2016. What is of importance here is that when in Brooklyn, Lynch was able to ‘stack’ that office with liberal staffers and attorneys translating into that even today that office is inundated with with attorneys hired, supervised, and indoctrinated by Clinton protector Lynch herself.

Now you can understand why Loretta Lynch helped block…helped obstruct…the F.B.I. looking into possible RICO violations committed by the Clinton Foundation… violations that had the Hillary run State Department showing a definitive pattern of ‘pay-to-play’…as in influence peddling to the highest bidder…and highest bidder means both those who like us as well as those who do not like us very much. And Lynch dared not let the Clinton’s down…I believe she was paid plenty for her services…by letting it be found out that the Clinton Foundation actually tied directly into the email scandal as Hillary sent thousands of what I suspect were Foundation emails…pay-for-play emails now deleted…on the illegal private server in her home…a server outside the government system that captures and saves all official emails going out and coming in.

And let’s also not forget that it was AG Lynch and her Department of Justice who refused to authorize the use of the grand jury that was needed to go forward with the Hillary email investigation…or should I say “matter.” And in her denying the F.B.I. the ability to subpoena both testimony and evidence, Lynch also crossed the line by consulted with defense attorneys representing additional ‘persons of interest’ to the investigation, basically setting the stage for Hillary ultimately (to date) being let off by Comey under the guise of “no intent.”
 
And know it was Loretta Lynch who unethically if not outright illegally allowed Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson to be Hillary’s attorneys…no matter that she knew these were the very two women Hillary told to go through her e-mails and (I believe) delete any that could cause a problem for her, her campaign, or for the Clinton Foundation… the Foundation that was the Clinton’s cash cow..and to do so under the guise of their being personal emails about Chelsea’s upcoming wedding and yoga positions…those were the critical emails that Loretta Lynch by her inactions helped to destroy.

And with Mills and Samuelson being told to delete only certain emails is where the “intent” motive comes into play for intent means a conduct or act perpetrated being knowing, willful, intentional, or grossly negligent …which ordering the deletion of incriminating evidence alone surely was. Lynch knew all this and still allowed these two characters to be Hillary’s attorneys knowing full-well that when needed she would be able to manipulate Clinton loyalist James Comey into saying no such “intent” occurred.

Nice huh…but wait…Lynch’s orchestrating of events goes even further.

As per The National Review, the afore mentioned Mills and Samuelson were then granted immunity from prosecution by the Lynch D.O.J. in exchange for providing the F.B.I. with the very laptops on which they reviewed Clinton’s four years of emails while at the same time the F.B.I. was investigating the Clinton Foundation yet they, the F.B.I., were being denied access to the Clinton emails.

Bottom line…first, these two characters Mills and Samuelson should never have been granted immunity or anything of the sort as they should have been made to turn over the computers by grand jury subpoena alone. And second, not only did Lynch seriously restrict the F.B.I.’s authority to examine Hillary’s computers, but she also agreed to the F.B.I. destroying those very computers after what would be their now limited examination of them.

Nothing like destroying evidence now is there…nothing like ‘dereliction of duty’ in allowing what would have been a breaching of simple classified information laws to morph into a felonious criminal offense…nothing like helping to hide the illegal activities between the Department of State and the Clinton Foundation…nothing like Loretta Lynch’s compromising the integrity of the Department of Justice itself in regards to the investigation into Hillary’s private email server…and nothing like doing it all for a hefty price I’m sure.

And now with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley having recently stated that Loretta Lynch is indeed a focus of their investigation over serious concerns she may have impeded the F.B.I.’s investigation into Hillary’s email scandal, know that if she is found guilty of ‘misconduct in office’ she would face a lengthy prison term.

But I’m not going to hold my breath for that to happen nor for James Comey to formally be called to task as time and events have proven that those loyal to the Clinton’s seem to get away with murder…figuratively speaking of course…and proves British politician Lord Acton’s words written in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton in 1887, “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”…and that truth has proven to be the saddest thing of all.

Black Lives Matter leader accused of punching horse arrested for speeding warrant

Fri, 07/07/2017 - 11:53pm
Shere Dore was taken in on a warrant while on her way to the courthouse.

Shere Dore and her partner were driving to the Harris County courthouse for an appearance in the earlier case when officers pulled the pair over and arrested Dore for warrants stemming from a two-year-old speeding charge.

Local activists were quick to cry foul.

“Law enforcement agencies have decided to set Shere up for coming out against them with her activism and various allyship,” said Ashton Woods of Black Lives Matter Houston.

“They were on their way to court – the officer was literally staked out waiting for them.”

The 41-year-old was taken to the Fort Bend County jail and held pending payment of her outstanding fees, prompting the Harris County court to revoke her bond when she failed to appear.

“It is interesting that this outstanding warrant did not come up when she was arrested in November of 2016 and more interesting that it would come up the morning of her court date,” said Brian Harrison, who has represented her in the Harris County case, along with attorney Jolanda Jones.

It was not immediately clear which law enforcement agency pulled Dore over Thursday.

“I don’t know why they were stopped on the morning of her court date, a date which I know a number of people thought was her trial date,” Harrison said.

Woods agreed that the timing of the arrest was not coincidental.

“This is some clear foul play,” he said. “I think that the law enforcement agencies are colluding with each other.”

Local activists, supporters, and friends rallied around the well-known advocate for the homeless, chipping in funds to secure Dore’s release. But even once she pays the $1,083.10 owed in Fort Bend, she’ll still be held until a Harris County judge can reinstate her bond, Harrison said.

The Harris County felony charge – interfering with a police service animal – stems from a spirited November march through downtown Houston.

During the nighttime protest two days after Trump‘s election, Dore was one of a handful of demonstrators arrested after the gathering spilled out into city streets.

As an officer on a police horse named Astro started to push Dore back onto the sidewalk, Dore allegedly hit the animal with a closed fist, a charge her lawyers have consistently denied.

“I want the world to know that our clients are absolutely innocent. They have a First Amendment right to protest,” Jones said after a November court date.

“I think this is one of the first indications of what’s going to happen with the new president.”

Oregon Becomes First State To Offer ‘Not-Specified’ Gender Option On Driver’s Licenses

Fri, 07/07/2017 - 9:50pm

On July 1, Oregon became the first state to offer a third gender option on its driver’s licenses and identification cards, eliciting immediate concern from conservatives who argue the state has chosen to eschew biological science in favor of catering to a fringe minority.

As a result of a rule approved last month by the Oregon Transportation Commission, the third option on a license application is an “X” that stands for “not specified.” It will allow individuals who are either biologically intersex or those who claim to be transgender or not gender specific to avoid having to choose a gender.

While the term intersex refers to a genuine biological condition “in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male,” according to the Intersex Society of North America, it’s believed the bill is designed to mainly cater to biological males and females who believe themselves to be transgender.

Writing for Red State, Kimberly Ross said the move by Oregon is therefore tantamount to a continuation of “the cultural landslide where we set aside the truth in favor of delusional mindsets and not making anyone feel bad.”

“The state approved recognition of a third gender identity flies right in the face of science, legitimizes mental delusion, and paints those who disagree with it as bigots,” she added.

It has long been maintained by some conservatives that the pursuit of an alternative gender identity stems not from some scientific reality but rather mental illness.

“The idea that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ — is not supported by scientific evidence,” wrote David French of National Review in a column last year.

Some doctors agree.

In a strongly worded statement published last year, the American College of Pediatricians argued that “a person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.”

“When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such.”

Though the statement primarily concerned children as per the college’s focus on pediatrics, the premise may also apply to men such as Jamie Shupe, the Oregon resident responsible for Oregon’s stunning rule change.

Last month, Oregon’s Driver and Motor Vehicle Services division admitted it instituted the new policy in response to a ruling last year by a judge who decreed Shupe had the right to be legally recognized as neither a man or woman but as “gender non-binary.”

What It Takes To Be A Writer

Fri, 07/07/2017 - 2:22pm

In case you haven’t noticed it, I’m prone to melancholy moods. You don’t have to be crazy to be a writer, but it sure helps. To begin with you have to convince people that you are a writer, especially family. I mean all those chowderheads who can’t compose a grocery list, but they have all the advice on how to write a best seller. If you survive that you can move on to phase two.

You’ll never make any money being a writer. It’s not in the cards. The house always wins. The best you can ever hope for is to etch out an existence where you pay the bills and then lie to your family. I hate it when someone asks, “How much MONEY have you made?” Nobody asks a plumber that. Think about it. How much? Since when? This year? Since I got out of high school? To the penny? How much money have YOU made, not counting what you borrowed from me!

So why do we do it? There’s something about expressing yourself that is therapeutic. When you pour your heart into words your heart doesn’t hurt so bad, and just the act of putting it all down explains things to YOU! The public be damned. What to they know. That’s why I edit so much. It’s not that I screw up, it’s that the point I’m trying to make becomes clearer until even I can understand it. Then you publish.

Publish. What a joke. Any thirteen year old school girl can do that now. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, they all hold the promise of instant fame, but the song remains the same; How much MONEY have they made? So, there it is. Why do we do it? We do it because in fifty years, after we stop stinking in the ground, some schoolgirl will read it in some classroom, and while all of her classmates are staring out through the window, waiting on lunch, the muse will land on her shoulders and another writer will be born. She will step quietly into the melancholy world bequeathed to her by those select few cursed to walk with the pen.

Lead With Truth Not Beliefs

Fri, 07/07/2017 - 7:37am

My question is this: “Is there New Testament evidence we should we be speaking more about truth, and less about “believing” or “beliefs”, when we speak to non-believers?”

I found all these citations where the apostles said they spoke truth, or implied they spoke it, and then they remarked about creating or not creating belief.  They never appeared to use “belief” for persuasive effect, only as an observed result.

Scripture Citations of Support

Acts 17:11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. [12] As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.

Acts 13:12  When the proconsul saw what had happened, he believed, for he was amazed at the teaching about the Lord.

Acts 13:12  At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Greeks believed.

Acts 15:7  After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe.

Acts 19:8-10  Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. 9 But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way.

Acts 28:23  They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. He witnessed to them from morning till evening, explaining about the kingdom of God, and from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets he tried to persuade them about Jesus. 24 Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe.

Romans 10:16  But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”

1 Corinthians 15:11  Whether, then, it is I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.

Ephesians 1:13  And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.

1 Thessalonians 2:13And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe

Reasons for the research

My finding in thousands of political debates was liberals love to engage in belief, opinion, and feelings contests, because they know there is never a winner in such dialogue. “All opinions are equal.” They want a “belief” based world, because their belief is then equal to yours.

Interestingly, in religious or political discussion, liberals were especially anxious to debate beliefs – despite decrying “Conservatives want their beliefs being forced on others.”  They only impugned OTHERS pushing belief.  So I began pointing out their own unconscious, casual use of the word “I believe we should …” in their dialogue.   When I reminded them, they began stumbling all over their words, they had trouble finding a substitute for the words “I believe…”.

Clearly “belief” was casual thought and language to liberal. Comfortable.  They talked as if they were “believers,” as if they were religious – about liberalism.

In my experience, I have also found MORE comfortable discussion with non-believers and liberals about the truth of the Gospels, rather than beliefs.  If you’re not clearly telling someone what is 100% proven as truth, why should they believe you?   You’ll sound like another politician.

Theory

I think Christian leadership has unconsciously, gradually, shifted from a truth-based advocacy to a belief based advocacy based on years of gradual pressure of liberals to a terrain on which they can win arguments with Christians:  Belief contests.

I recommend Christians vastly increase the use of TRUTH in their advocacy, not beliefs.  Here is an article on how to establish the truth of the four Gospels:
http://www.teapartytribune.com/2016/01/20/atheist-lawyer-agrees-the-bible-is-truthful-testimony/

Objection – Objection Your Honor!!!

An objection I hear is we will be more threatening if we speak of truth – but, non-believers surely don’t seem threatened by Islam, a far more confident and confrontation belief system than Christianity.  So why should Christians be wary of claiming to be truthful?   Christians are criticized MORE than Islam, I never hear any complaints about them – only excuses for their bad behavior.

So – telling the truth cannot be considered truly threatening.  It’s a fake protest from the people who read fake news.

Conclusion

The finding above suggest Christians should be less focused on belief discussion with non-believers, and more focused on truth-based discussion with non-believers.

Mainly because it looks like the Apostles surely did.

13-Yr-Old Says He Wants To Run Away, Then Tells Officer To Go Look In His Room…

Thu, 07/06/2017 - 3:55am

When you’re a police officer you never know what kinds of calls you’re going to get. And you never know when one of those calls will change your life forever.
After 13-year-old Cameron Simmons made a distressed call to the Sumter Police Department, Officer Gaetano Acerra went to check in on him.
When he started talking to Cameron, the boy told him that his mom was yelling at him for playing his older brother’s video games and he wanted to run away from home, but Officer Acerra sensed there was more going on.
That’s when Cameron took the police officer into his bedroom. Officer Acerra couldn’t believe what he found.
The room was completely empty. There was no bed, no dresser – Cameron’s clothes were just thrown in a trash bag on the floor.
Acerra learned that Cameron’s mom had fallen on hard times after making an unexpected move from Texas to South Carolina to care for a sick relative.
Acerra talked to the boy and convinced him not to run away, but little did Cameron know that the officer was planning something much greater.
Unbeknownst to Cameron or his family, Officer Acerra began to gather items for the family. Then one day he surprised them all by dropping off a brand new desk, chair, bed, TV, and Wii gaming system. In addition, he brought a full bedroom set for Cameron’s brother and an air hockey table for them to play together!

The entire family was shocked and Cameron was left in tears when he saw the officer’s generosity.
Officer Acerra said he didn’t do it for praise or recognition.
“I put a smile on this kid’s face, and a friendship,” he said. “I think that’s well worth it.”In a time when things are so tense between people and the police, it is heartening to see one officer go above and beyond the call of duty to help someone in need. The example he set for Cameron and his brother is sure to last a lifetime.

CNN Devotes Two Segments to Trump’s ‘Executive Privilege’ for Eating Two Scoops of Ice Cream

Thu, 07/06/2017 - 2:18am

CNN devoted not one, but two segments on how President Trump got two scoops of ice cream while his dinner guests only got one as the network tried to pass off a “scoop” about the president’s eating habits as news.

In a segment titled, “Two scoops for Trump,” CNN’s Jeanne Moos talks about Trump’s “executive privilege” for receiving two scoops of ice cream while the three TIME magazine correspondents he had dinner with only got one.

The TIME magazine correspondents made sure to take note of the disparity between the food given to the president and the food they were served in a profile called “Donald Trump After Hours,” the profile the segment was based on.

“At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else,” TIME’s Michael Scherer and Zeke Miller wrote.

“With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests,” they added.

But this was not the only segment CNN devoted to the subject.

CNN also gave airtime to an interview between CNN’s Brooke Baldwin and CNN political reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza with the headline, “President Gets Two Scoops of Ice Cream, Everyone Else One.”

“The President gets two scoops, you know, everyone around the table gets one, and no word if there were sprinkles,” Baldwin commented.

“Right, well, the broader point here is, the White House staff has adapted to Donald Trump’s case,” CNN political reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza responded. “So, when everyone else gets water, he gets a diet coke. When everybody gets one scoop of ice cream, he gets two.”

Fox News host Sean Hannity mocked CNN for its “hard-hitting coverage.”

Thanks for the hard hitting news on your network @jaketapperhttps://t.co/ieP7VDrNMu #Hannity

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) May 11, 2017

“Thanks for the hard-hitting news on your network,” Hannity wrote on Twitter.

Others, however, thought Trump’s ice cream habits were worth mentioning.

“This explains a lot,” the Atlantic’s David Frum wrote on Twitter, to which Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post responded saying that Trump is “a man unable to restrain his urges.”

One Bad Deal Down…One Very Bad Deal to Go

Thu, 07/06/2017 - 1:31am

“Effective immediately, I am canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba.” – President Trump’s words this past Friday at the Manuel Artime Theater in Miami’s ‘Little Havana’

Saying that the Cuban people suffered for almost six decades of communist rule, President Donald Trump, to tremendous applause, unraveled and rescinding Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s ‘so-called’ historic accord that opened up trade and travel to Cuba… and he did so by rightfully calling Obama’s deal “terrible,” “one-sided,” and “misguided”… and that is putting it mildly.

And so in a campaign promise kept to the anti-Castro voting bloc that helped him win Florida in the 2016 election, President Trump stated that he will be “a voice against repression” and “a voice for the Cuban people.” Adding that Obama’s easing restrictions on Cuba did not help the Cuban people at all, especially with the Castro regime becoming even more repressive in their trying to crush the island nation’s growing democratic movement, and because it still remains a regime that has failed to take any positive action on human rights, Trump went on to explain that current investments in business and tourism aided both Cuba’s military…as all business relationships and deals go through the Cuban military…and Raul Castro’s dictatorial regime…with any jobs created going to party cronies and loyalists alone.

Translating into any American monies given being our taxpayer dollars wasted.

And in a bold move to hold Castro accountable for still on-going and increasing oppression (in 2016 there were 9,940 short and long term detentions of political protesters, up from 8,899 in 2014) and human rights abuses ignored while Obama was president, President Trump let it be known that sanctions will not be lifted until all political prisoners are freed, until both freedom of assembly and expression is respected, until all political parties are legalized, and until free and internationally supervised elections are held, thus making it clear who is now calling the shots and who is not…and not means one Raul Castro.

See President Trump’s full Miami speech here:

“The career service people, in the State Department and Treasury and in other places, are not in favor of changing this policy,” said Sen. Marco Rubio during his and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart’s May 3rd White House meeting with President Trump…a meeting to try and get President Trump to reverse Obama’s Cuba policy. And they did so even though two groups of pro-Cuba “engagement” House and Senate Republicans each sent letters to President Trump and to key members of his administration… letters asking for Cuba to remain “open” citing the “entrepreneurial and national security benefits” as the reason for continuing Obama’s Cuba policy.

Thankfully their letters failed.

See Sen. Marco Rubio’s Miami speech here:

“We will enforce the ban on tourism. We will enforce the embargo. We will take concrete steps to ensure that investments flow directly to the people so they can open private businesses and begin to build their country’s great, great future, a country of great potential,” Trump said as he challenged the Cuban government to “come to the table” to work towards an agreement that is in the best interest of the Cuban, the American, and the Cuban-American people. And Trump said that best interest included Cuba’s returning to face American justice both cop killer Joanne Chesimard and what he calls the Cuban military “criminals” who shot down and killed four members of Brothers to the Rescue.

Also, travel policies will be adjusted to make it harder for individual ‘people-to-people’ travel…tough luck Beyonce and Jay-Z…but family travel will continue to be authorized as will U.S. based money transfers that Cuban-Americans send to their families on the island. And while we will retain formal diplomatic relations with Cuba via the newly re-opened U.S. Embassy in Havana, the ‘wet foot, dry foot’ policy will not be reinstated out of safety concerns for those trying to make such a dangerous sea voyage.

And while no changes will go into effect until both the Treasury and Commerce Departments issue new regulations that conform with Trump’s new policy, the Cuban government’s response to Trump’s change in policy came swiftly and it came via a statement in the state-run newspaper Granma, “Again, the United States Government resorted to coercive methods of the past… the Cuban Government denounces the new measures to tighten the blockade, which are destined to fail as has been shown repeatedly in the past, and which will not achieve its purpose to weaken the revolution or to defeat the Cuban people, whose resistance to the aggressions of any type and origin has been proven over almost six decades.”

But really…who cares what Raul Castro’s propaganda rag has to say.

So now that Obama’s bad Cuba deal has been rightly relegated to the trash heap where it belongs, Trump has one more bad deal of Obama’s to get rid of…the multilateral agreement yet “catastrophically” bad Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)…more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal…probably the worst deal ever made by a U.S. president.

And this was a deal Obama touted as a crucial move towards what he called “detente with Iran” and towards regional peace, and was a deal that was supposed to restrict the nuclear ambitions of the rogue nation in exchange for lifting financial and oil sanctions imposed not just by the United States, but also by the European Union, and the United Nations.

But the reality remains that this was a deal that did not address Iran’s foreign policy.violations, and was a deal made through blackmail of sorts what with Obama’s ‘warning’ Congress that blocking the deal could spark not only start a Middle East war, but that U.S. credibility worldwide would be seriously damaged if Congress refused to abide by the deal’s terms reached…a deal with a country that went from having 164 centrifuges in 2003 to 19,000 at the start of talks in 2013, despite broad and expansive U.N. sanctions.

And it did not matter to Obama that it was a very bad deal made with a country who has repeatedly in the past and who continues today to spew its intent to wipe Israel off the map while it touts as noble both violence against both American troops and the world’s innocent civilians alike…for Iran is indeed the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism and plays a major role in regional military conflicts.

A deal I call ‘aiding and abetting’ the enemy…a deal of treason and nothing less…for Obama’s very bad deal does little to block Iranian’s path to securing nuclear weapons as this deal actually gives Iran a ‘pathway’ to nuclear weapons capability.

Remember, under this still in effect deal of Obama’s, Iran is allowed to enrich uranium using the thousands of centrifuges it already has in operation, is allowed to conduct nuclear research and development, and is in charge of monitoring their own adherence to the nuclear restrictions. And dare we forget that in only ten years…in what is referred to as Iran’s ‘breakout time’…their rush to secure a nuclear weapon drops to almost zero for as per the deal they will be allowed to begin building hundreds of advanced new centrifuges annually, while at the same time being allowed to expand its long-range ballistic missile program…the very program that would afford Iran its needed delivery system not to reach Israel but to reach who they call the ‘Great Satan’…as in these United States of America.

So it is no wonder why this Iran deal of Obama’s must join the Cuban deal in the trash heap and must do so post-haste for it is a deal that not only assures Iran of eventually securing nuclear weapons, but it is a deal that also funnels tens of billions of dollars to terrorists hell-bent on destabilizing the entirety of the Middle East making full-blown war a possibility…allowing the so-wanted Levant to come to fruition.

And yet President Trump…who must review and sign the sanctions relief waiver every 120 days based upon Iran’s complying with their end of the deal…just one month ago passed up his first chance to withdraw us from this very bad deal. And while Trump knows that it would be legally possible for him to nullify said deal, he also knows that his doing so could possibly isolate us from the international community. And besides, we already have unilateral sanctions placed against Iran that go back decades that the nuclear deal has no bearing on…sanctions recently extended by Congress.

So the question remains, is President Trump trying to renegotiate a better deal with Iran possibly his true goal? Probably not as it would be much easier for him to totally kill the existing deal because said deal still in effect did require demanding negotiations between many parties, with those parties now highly unlikely to want to renegotiate again. And while the deal did reign in Iran’s uranium enrichment capabilities to some degree in return for the previously stated lifting of economic sanctions, it was our European allies, not us who economically benefited the most from the deal with oil-rich Iran. And these folks would not want to jeopardize those benefits no matter the fact that any Western company that invests in Iran actually becomes complicit with a terrorist regime.

But how and with what justification could President Trump legally pull us out of Obama’s very bad nuclear deal…and is he just waiting for the right time to send it to the proverbial trash heap where it belongs? I truly believe he is.

And why do I believe so…because a deal is only valid as long as all parties uphold it. And with Iran’s continuing and active role as the leading state sponsor of terrorism has shown them to have already broken their end of the deal…a deal that forbade their giving released sanctions monies to terrorist groups.

And that is exactly what Iran has done in their giving money to known terrorist groups in Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Lebanon, including their giving monies to militias fighting the U.S. backed anti-government rebels in Syria…as in Obama’s buddies the ‘anything-but’ Syrians rebels who are tentacles of ISIS and al-Qaeda….and their giving monies to U.S. designated terrorist group Hezbollah.

And also let’s not forget the U.N. resolution passed immediately upon the nuclear deal going into effect that called for Iran not to undertake any activity whatsoever related to ballistic missiles…ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons…well, that too Iran has broken.

Translation: whether alone or together both these instances are deal breakers of the first degree…deal breakers that give President Trump the much-needed leverage, ammunition, and just cause to pull us out of a deal that should never been ratified by Congress in the first place…and he could do so by using our veto power as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council to kill any continued sanctions relief.

So as President Trump continues his review of Obama’s very bad nuclear deal, coupled with the fact that the U.S. remains the primary influence over the international financial system, makes both U.S. and international banks more than a bit leery about resuming full ties with Iran. And with our continued unilateral sanctions against Iran still in place allows us to continue to question Iran’s intent to comply with the agreement they so desperately wanted. And that basically assures us that in time President Trump will pull us out of the deal that should never have been.

And that together with Obama’s Cuba deal now being relegated to the trash heap truly is yet another step forward in helping to ‘Make America Great Again.’

Tweet On, Mr President

Wed, 07/05/2017 - 4:11pm

President Trump is criticized from all sides for sparing with fake news media via tweets. Some say Trump’s tweets are a distraction from getting out his message. The truth is fake news media are relentlessly 24/7 distorting and misrepresenting Trump’s agenda and message. Tweeting is Trump’s direct line to the American people which is the reason his tweets infuriate and frustrate fake news media.

Some say Trump responding to attacks and lies from media hacks is unworthy of his time and below his office. I disagree. How many times must we witness the accumulative toxic effect of allowing absurd lies on Republicans to go unchallenged? Such lies take root and grow. Leftists know if they attack a Republican with a big enough lie long enough, people will come to believe it. Leftists’ unchallenged huge lie, “Bush lied and people died” eventually tanked Bush’s approval numbers.

When Mitt Romney ran for president, I laughed at fake news media’s lies launched to destroy him. Fake news media said Romney caused the death of an employee’s wife; Romney abused his dog by hauling it on the roof of his car and Romney bullied a fellow student in school. I thought these attacks were too absurd to be believed or too trivial to care about. Little did I realize these seemingly unworthy-of-a-response attacks on Romney were building a false image of this genuinely decent and kind human being in the minds of low-info voters.

I chuckled hearing Michael Jackson say in his classic “Thriller” music video, “I’m not like other guys.” When will Washington DC and fake news media realize Trump is not like other Republicans? It is not in Trump’s DNA to sit back and allow himself to be attacked and lied about without pushing back harder. Frankly, I love that about our new sheriff in town.

Trump confronting fake news media’s lies in tweets is driving Leftists crazy because they do not know how to deal with it. Leftists are accustom to Republicans cowering in fear, rolling over and taking fake news media assassinating their character.

Fake news media has a proven track record of 24/7 negative nitpicking a Republican to death. This is why fake news media made a huge deal about Trump supposedly getting two scoops of ice cream while everyone else only gets one.What appeared to be much ado about nothing was really a strategically planned attempt to further fake news media’s branding of Trump; an egomaniac mean bully.

Still, there are folks on our side who want Trump to stop tweeting and play by traditional Washington DC establishment and fake news media rules for Republicans. Why should Trump allow his unhinged morally bankrupt enemies to dictate the rules of engagement. Tweeting is a technological powerful weapon available to President Trump. I say tweet on Mr. President. Tweet on.

Political experts advising Republicans to walk-on-eggshells when dealing with the first black president, Democrats, and fake news media have brought us patriotic Americans nothing but frustration and the furtherance of the extreme radical left’s agenda.

I will not bore you with the long list of Obama’s unconstitutional overreaches http://bit.ly/2q1Edd7 to which the GOP response was, “That’s not legal, but we dare not oppose him.” Real regime change in DC was birthed out of the Tea Party pushing Republicans to behave outside of expert’s advised timidity. This resulted in the GOP winning the House, Senate, and White House.

Hypocritically, fake news media lectured Republicans about how to behave while supporting Democrats doing whatever necessary, including breaking laws, to implement their extreme liberal agenda. For example. Fake news media supports Democrats’ proven bogus narrative that allowing illegals to invade our homeland makes Americans safer. The fact that sanctuary cities are arrogantly breaking the law is of no concern to fake news media.

On a recent retreat, MSNBC was one of the few news channels I could get on TV. Folks, watching the total propaganda network was astounding. MSNBC lies, distorts and spins against Trump practically 24/7; clearly, laser focused and obsessed with taking down our president.

Not only is Trump not like other Republicans, he is not like other presidents. I am confident that I speak for millions of Americans when I say that is just fine with us as long as he constitutionally fulfills his campaign promises.

Master Chief

Wed, 07/05/2017 - 9:17am

Master Chief Wilbur Witt III retired last week in San Diego. When he joined the Navy back in ’93 we had no idea he would take it that far, but we should have. At two years old he would put his fireman’s hat on and race around our living room going to “work” every morning. In high school he played in the marching band his shoes were shined and buttons gleamed. Then he joined the Navy.

Master Chief’s career was a mirror image of the schizophrenia that has overtaken America in the last twenty years. One day he was throwing the enemies of our nation into the Persian Gulf, and the next he was fishing them out. Still, as I mingled with his shipmates I came to realize that the “old Navy” is still there. They’re smart enough to keep their heads down, but as they walk down that red carpet with the ship’s bell ringing them into the twilight of their lives they’re leaving and inspired core that knows how to take care of the Uns, the Putins and ISIS, and understand that there’s just no nice way to kill people, but there are those the world would be better without.

Our armed services are not dead, but have been restrained. Elements in our society such as ANTIFA, and Black Lives Matter work hard to disrupt America and the Men and Women standing the watch do so to protect their right to do so in some sort of perverted divine comedy. This is the way America works. All voices need to be heard, not shouted down, to develop a consensus of direction for the people, not just the loudest mob in the street.

Today Master Chief is resting in Northern California with family comfortable in knowing that his phone will not ring ending his vacation to race back to the ship, but knowing that as he was relieved another stepped up to keep the watch and slay the dogs of war who would silence the voice of liberty. Fair winds and following seas are earned, not given.

Anarchy

Tue, 07/04/2017 - 2:57pm

Anarchy, A New Beginning For America The future always has a way of asking questions about the past. A future that does not know its past is like a bastard child; it wants to know who its father was.

 

Later, when they start asking the tough questions about what happened to America, they won’t be about what happened, but why. Looking back at my wonder years, I am astonished at the lawless place America has become. With our population skyrocketing, filling our cities to capacity, and turning our small to mid-sized towns into cities or metro areas, we have fewer protections from evil doers, both crime entrepreneurs, and corporate felons than we did 30 years ago. In the case of the former, there are an inadequate number of police, and even fewer who possess any real competence, so the cops lock up the stupid criminals of which there is no shortage, leaving us at the mercy of the smarter thugs, of which there is a similar number. In the case of the latter, long drawn out court procedures result in those few corporate offenders unfortunate enough to have been caught with a smoking gun in hand and registered to them to pay fines minuscule compared to the profits gained from their crimes, and an agreement that they may admit to no wrongdoing. Looking backward at our past as a nation, we know what happened.

 

It’s not so hard to understand that a fledgling nation with vast natural resources, and a relatively small population would become a leader in world markets, and a magnet to overseas labor and investment. The what and the why match perfectly. No real detailed history of that period is needed, because logic holds the whole premise together as seamlessly as a roman arch supports itself. Later in our history it was necessary for Presidents, then our undisputed leaders, to curb the power of those few ultra wealthy men who had become known as the robber barons. Teddy Roosevelt was arguably the first to truly challenge the threat of vertical integration by getting laws passed forbidding monopolies, as well as a raft of laws making it difficult for big money to grow so large that it threatened our democracy. During the tenure of FDR, a distant cousin of Teddy’s, it became necessary that president Roosevelt pass a series of laws prohibiting banks and investment houses from colluding to make a few people fabulously wealthy at the expense of impoverishing the rest of America. Income tax rose on the wealthy during this era as well, putting a healthy curb on the nascent fascism growing in the heart of the world’s greatest democracy. Despite an attempt at a treasonous coup, Henry Ford, Prescott Bush and some other notable billionaires were stymied by Snively Butler, and America continued to thrive. Again, form beckons to function, and this piece of history needs little explanation. Following these events, a period of discord fell upon us. Still our undisputed leader President Truman ordered the atomic destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Why he did this is at odds with logic. Yes, it’s true that the lives of American soldiers were saved by the bombing, but they accomplished nothing even close to the destruction wrought but Curtis LeMay and his technique of firebombing. So here, at this point some tough questions emerge. The “why” questions.

 

Form and function seem to parallel rather than merge. Later, during the Eisenhower administration, a shadowy but robustly powerful man by the name of Robert Moses emerged. Powered by big oil, and the big three auto makers, he blazed an unlikely trail across the landscape of the American future dictating that the automobile was to be the dominant, if not only form of transportation used by Americans. With no mandate, no referendum, indeed in secrecy, he insured that America would build a wildly expensive infrastructure of highways, city streets, and automobile pathways that would not just compete with, but virtually eliminate trains, subways, and buses. As far as self locomotion such as cycling or walking were concerned, citizens were, and still are invited to travel at their own risk. Now the connection between form and logic become fuzzy. These measures enriched the lives and furthered the agendas of ordinary citizens how? As we were to see, these were tough questions, and there was little appetite to unearth the why of these actions. After a brief squabble over who might be elected and allowed to live out their presidencies it became clear that our presidents were no longer our supreme leaders. Now shadowy figures prowled the corridors of power. King makers, and would be dictators. For a brief shining moment America united its leadership of religion and government under the single figure of President Carter. Vilified to this day by ignorant fools who do so because they read it on a bathroom wall somewhere, President Carter managed to integrate our future and our past, and came within an ace of solving the conflict in the Middle East. Walking the walk, instead of talking the talk, our great Christian leader was nonetheless deposed by a likable candidate whose entire administration was carried out by active CIA operatives, and Wall Street magnates. Logic broke down as far as the American vision was concerned, unless you were among those who profited by these maneuvers. But for every day workers, folks trying to get ahead, not just survive, it was poison. But we do have answers to the tough questions of why from this era. Maines electric and their financing partners, the activities of the economic hit men, and their CIA funded jackals make it clear that vested money, and vulture capitalism were in the ascendant. Fast forward to 30 years ago. The libertarian party declared war against taxes, government regulations, government oversight, any and all government agencies, and assistance to the poor. Their platform even called for the abolishment of the military. For once, form was nowhere near function. At theosbranch we inform our bastard present as to who is our father. We name names, and explain why. Visit us soon. – Theo Clevenger

Arrested for Committing Hate Speech Against Himself

Mon, 07/03/2017 - 1:03am

 

This past Saturday an American Patriot…my friend Bill Finlay…aka Wild Bill for America…was arrested in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for ‘supposed’ hate speech on his iPad. Bill was an invited guest asked to speak at the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam.

It all started with this comment and the poster he put on his Facebook page: “Heading out to Calgary, Alberta, Canada to speak at the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam! Have info that the govt is busing in agitators to make things difficult for us. So please put me and the others on your prayer lists as we take a stand against the most dangerous false religion on earth……and the flaming liberals who love it.

When I heard from Bill a few hours after his arrest at the Calgary airport this is what he told me, Canada just decided to kick me out so I’m on my way home but it’s not over yet. In addition to the unlawful detention, they seized my laptop to send to Ottawa for a ‘forensic investigation,’ they are determined to get me on something. Plus they are bringing in their tax authority to determine the tariff to slap on the smuggled contraband (my personal notes to myself on Islam’s abuse of women and children). And my speech was about the importance of open and honest discussion without fear of the government dragging us away.” 

And then in typical Wild Bill humorous fashion Bill said to me that “the notes written to myself that no one could see means I must have committed a hate crime against myself!” All I could say at that point was that Canada has some serious issues…guess Prime Minister Trudeau is an Angela Merkel clone.

Here now is the very speech Wild Bill was to give in Canada…a speech he gave a few weeks ago in Jacksonville, FL. The cops after confiscating his iPad having read the script immediately arrested him for hate speech. Watch the video and you decide if this is hate speech…I sure do NOT think it is…I think it is truth…a truth that must be told:.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZUmYQYDaw8&feature=youtu.be

Seriously folks…what happened to Bill in Canada can (and sadly most likely will) happen here in our own country if we do NOT put an end to this political correctness nonsense concerning a certain group of people…as in muslims…and their liberal Democrat kumbaya protectors…all of whom do not like us very much.Thankfully, Bill is now safely home in Florida and is OK…mad but OK…and last night “foreign national” Bill put up this video on his Facebook page where in his own words he tells his story of Canadian border police out of control:

I spoke to Bill by phone last night and he will be on Craig and my RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS radio show on American Political Radio this Friday, June 30th from 7 to 9pm EST to tell his story and hopefully wake some people up to the dangers ‘We the People’ face regarding our First Amendment rights and freedoms.

Hope you can tune in at: https://tunein.americanpoliticalradio.com/platinum-plus-player/ because this is one show you do not want to miss. Remember, what happened to Bill in Canada can happen to any one of us…as political correctness and the stifling of free speech, if not stopped, will indeed be the death of us all.
