Pompeo: Iran Behind Drone Strikes on Saudi Oil Fields…Why Has Iran Been “Acting Out”?

September 15, 2019

Iranian supported Houthi rebels who attacked Saudi oil refineries is yet another example of how Iran is wreaking havoc in the Middle East. The Iranian regime is not interested in peace – they’re pursuing nuclear weapons and regional dominance. – Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

FoxNews.com reports that

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on the international community to join him Saturday in condemning Iran for drone attacks on two Saudi oil facilities, which he described as “an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply”.

“Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while [President Hassan] Rouhani and [Foreign Minister Mohammad] Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy,” Pompeo tweeted, referring to the nation’s president and foreign affairs minister. ” … There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen.”

Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack hours before Pompeo’s tweet. The world’s largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field were impacted, sparking huge fires at a vulnerable chokepoint for global energy supplies.

“The United States will work with our partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain well supplied and Iran is held accountable for its aggression,” Pompeo concluded.

According to multiple news reports that cited unidentified sources, the drone attacks affected up to half of the supplies from the world’s largest exporter of oil, though the output should be restored within days. It remained unclear if anyone was injured at the Abqaiq oil processing facility and the Khurais oil field.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, denounced Pompeo’s description of the attack, calling it an “irresponsible simplification.”

“The Saudis and Houthis are at war. The Saudis attack the Houthis and the Houthis attack back. Iran is backing the Houthis and has been a bad actor, but it’s just not as simple as Houthis=Iran,” he added.

Saturday’s attack comes after weeks of similar drone assaults on the kingdom’s oil infrastructure, but none of the earlier strikes appeared to have caused the same amount of damage. The attack likely will heighten tensions further across the Persian Gulf amid an escalating crisis between the U.S. and Iran over its unraveling nuclear deal with world powers.

In a short address aired by the Houthi-controlled Al-Masirah satellite news channel, military spokesman Yahia Sarie said the rebels launched 10 drones after receiving “intelligence” support from those inside the kingdom. He warned that attacks by the rebels would only get worse if the war continues.

“The only option for the Saudi government is to stop attacking us,” Sarie said.

The rebels hold Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, and other parts f the Arab world’s poorest country. Since 2015, a Saudi-led coalition has fought to reinstate the internationally recognized Yemeni government.

Martin Griffiths, the United Nations Special Envoy for Yemen, called the strikes “extremely worrying” and urged “all parties to prevent such further incidents, which pose a serious threat to regional security, complicate the already fragile situation and jeopardize [the] UN-led political process.”

Trump called Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the wake of the drone strikes and expressed the United States’ readiness to cooperate with the kingdom in supporting its security and stability, according to a news release from the Saudi Embassy in Washington. Trump said recent attacks against Saudi state-run oil facilities have had a negative impact on the U.S. and global economies.

The White House readout of the same call said the president spoke to the crown prince to “offer his support for Saudi Arabia’s self-defense.

“The United States strongly condemns today’s attack on critical energy infrastructure,” the White House statement added. “Violent actions against civilian areas and infrastructure vital to the global economy only deepen conflict and mistrust. The United States Government is monitoring the situation and remains committed to ensuring global oil markets are stable and well supplied.”

So, why is Iran “acting out”?

Is it as simple as Democrat Senator Chris Murphy attempted to explain it to be?

Just a dust-up between two Muslim sects who have despised each other for years?

Or, is it as Secretary of State Pompeo described, “an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply”?

I’m siding with President Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo on this one.

Gentle readers, it has well been over a year since the 45th President of the United States of America announced that he was ending a very stupid, very dangerous Foreign Policy decision made by the 44th President.

And, rightfully so.

All Barack Hussein Obama’s “Gentlemen’s Agreement” with the Mad Mullahs of Iran accomplished was to allow them to continue to work on their nuclear program.

Are you old enough to remember the Iranian Hostage Crisis? If not, here is a summary, courtesy of u-s-history.com:

On November 4, 1979, an angry mob of some 300 to 500 “students” who called themselves “Imam’s Disciples,” laid siege to the American Embassy in Teheran, Iran, to capture and hold hostage 66 U.S. citizens and diplomats. Although women and African-Americans were released a short time later, 51 hostages remained imprisoned for 444 days with another individual released because of illness midway through the ordeal.

…Upon the death of the shah in July [1980] (which neutralized one demand) and the Iraqi invasion of Iran in September (necessitating weapons acquisition), Iran became more amenable to reopening negotiations for the hostages’ release.

In the late stages of the presidential race with Ronald Reagan, Carter, given those new parameters, might have been able to bargain with the Iranians, which might have clinched the election for him. The 11th-hour heroics were dubbed an “October Surprise”* by the Reagan camp — something they did not want to see happen.

Allegations surfaced that William Casey, director of the Reagan campaign, and some CIA operatives, secretly met with Iranian officials in Europe to arrange for the hostages’ release, but not until after the election. If true, some observers aver, dealing with a hostile foreign government to achieve a domestic administration’s defeat would have been grounds for charges of treason.

Reagan won the election, partly because of the failure of the Carter administration to bring the hostages home. Within minutes of Reagan’s inauguration, the hostages were released.

In stark, terrifying contrast, the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, purposely and surreptitiously handed a Rogue State of Radical Muslim Barbarians the means of the destruction of both the United States of America and our staunch ally, Israel, with his toothless “Nuclear Agreement”

Why did the President of these United States, Barack Hussein Obama, trust Iran, an enemy of freedom, to stand by its “Agreement” to refrain from nuking the United States of America and Israel?

He gave Iran everything they wanted: their money, nuclear capability, and acquiescence by the Government of the United States of America, literally, encouraging the world’s population of Islamic Terrorists to kidnap our own Naval Personnel, with the promise of a huge payday, while he remained president.

Addtionally, Fox News reported in December of 2017 that

The Obama administration gave a free pass to Hezbollah’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations — some of which were unfolding inside the U.S. — to help ensure the Iran nuclear deal would stay on track, according to a bombshell exposé in Politico Sunday.

An elaborate campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration, known as Project Cassandra, reportedly targeted the Lebanese militant group’s criminal activities. But by tossing a string of roadblocks holding back the project, Obama administration officials helped allow the 35-year-old anti-Israel criminal enterprise to evolve into a major global security threat bankrolling terrorist and military operations, the report added.

And, as was reported in May of 2018, Former Secretary of State John Kerry had been engaging in “Shadow Diplomacy”, otherwise known as conspiratorial sedition, by meeting with the Iranians in the desperate hope to somehow keep the lousy deal with the Iranians and his former Boss’ legacy intact.

Could the support of the “Shadow Government” of Former President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Secretary of State John Kerry, et al, have a part in these recent bold, “testing” activities of the Mad Mullahs of Iran?

Could be.

As you watch all of the Liberals News Channels dissect and “analyze” what is happening in the Persian Gulf, you will know doubt see a lot of concerned hand-wringing from anchors, political pundits, and Democratic Congressmen as to what a grave error that President Trump made by ending Obama’s “deal” with Iran.

The Democrats will continue to try to make Americans believe that it is Trump’s “belligerent nature” which has the Iranians “acting out”.

Don’t believe them.

The intentional error was made by Obama making that stupid “gentleman’s agreement” with Iran in the first place.

He knew that the Iranians would not keep their word.

He didn’t care.

His desire to leave a legacy as President trumped his concern for the safety of America, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and any other country which the Iranians might feel like attacking.

And now, President Trump is having to clean up Obama’s mess.

What better way to strike a blow against America than to blow up the Saudi oil fields, thus raising the price of Saudi Oil?

The Mad Mullahs of Iran seem to believe that President Trump and the American People don’t have the backbone to stand up to them. That is why they are playing this game of chicken, both in the Gulf and on land. They believe that the 45th President will blink and kowtow to them, as his predecessor did.

My advice to the Mullahs?

Just like the Pirate Captain did in the popular joke that has been going around for awhile, have your servant bring you your pair of brown pants.

You are going to need them before this game is over with.

Until He Comes,

Draft of IG FISA Abuse Report Submitted to AG Barr…Public Release Soon…Did You Know That There Was a Second FISA Dossier?

September 14, 2019

untitled (246)

FoxNews.com reports that

The Justice Department’s inspector general told lawmakers Friday his team is nearly finished with its long-awaited review of alleged surveillance abuses by the DOJ and FBI during the Russia investigation, saying they have submitted a draft to Attorney General Bill Barr and are “finalizing” the report ahead of its public release.

“We have now begun the process of finalizing our report by providing a draft of our factual findings to the department and the FBI for classification determination and marking,” Michael Horowitz wrote in a Friday letter to several House and Senate committees. “This step is consistent with our process for reports such as this one that involve classified material.”

Barr has received the draft report from Horowitz and will begin the process of reviewing it, according to a source familiar with the situation. The inspector general said his team has “reviewed over one million records and conducted over 100 interviews, including several of witnesses who only recently agreed to be interviewed.”

Horowitz and his investigators have probed how the infamous anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele was used to secure the original Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant for former Trump aide Carter Page in October 2016, as well as for three renewals. Horowitz’s team has questioned why the FBI considered Steele a credible source, and why the bureau seemed to use news reports to bolster Steele’s credibility.

In his letter Friday, Horowitz indicated that once the Justice Department and the FBI send back a marked document relating to classified material, his team will “proceed with our usual process for preparing final draft public and classified reports, and ensuring that appropriate reviews occur for accuracy and comment purposes.”

Meanwhile, a key FBI player during the time frame, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, is facing the prospect of federal charges after Horowitz faulted him in a separate inquiry over statements he made during a Hillary Clinton-related investigation. The review found that McCabe “lacked candor” when talking with investigators, but the former FBI official has denied wrongdoing.

As Fox News reported Thursday, Washington D.C. U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against McCabe, a CNN contributor, though no indictment has been handed down.

The Horowitz letter also comes amid other similar inquiries related to the 2016 election:

Barr has assigned John Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, to conduct an inquiry into alleged misconduct and alleged improper government surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

And U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review not only alleged surveillance abuses by the Justice Department and the FBI but also their handling of the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and other matters.

As we wait for IG Horowitz’s findings to be made public, here is something else to chew on:

Did you know that there was a second FISA Dossier?

In February of 2018, Judicial Watch reported that

The strange case of the Russian dossier got even stranger this week with a new report from the Guardian raising a name from the seamy side of Clinton past. A “second Trump-Russia dossier” has been turned over to the FBI, the Guardian reported. The second dossier was compiled by Cody Shearer, who the Guardian identifies as a “a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s.”

That’s putting it mildly. Shearer in fact has long been linked to the sleaziest aspects of the Clinton operation, mainly through his close relationship with Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal. Longtime observers of the Clinton ecosystem know that when Cody appears, Sid Blumenthal is not far behind. A ceaseless schemer, Blumenthal was so offensive to the Obama White House that he was banned from an official role at Mrs. Clinton’s State Department. But that barely slowed him down. As documented by Judicial Watch and others, Blumenthal was a constant presence by Mrs. Clinton’s side during her State Department years.

Blumenthal and Shearer are connected to a global network of intelligence and military freelancers. They played a dangerous game meddling in Libyan affairs after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi. They supplied intelligence to Secretary of State Clinton in the weeks leading up to the Benghazi debacle and pitched deals to make money off the Libyan turmoil. ProPublica reports at length on the Blumenthal and Shearer’s Libyan efforts here. According to Judicial Watch’s reporting, during Mrs. Clinton’s State Department tenure, Blumenthal also promoted African business deals and meddled in European Union elections.

As for Shearer, he has a long history of dirty tricks. He’s been linked to Whitewater-era efforts to dirty up Bill Clinton critics; to shakedown politics involving the Cheyenne-Arapaho Indian tribe; and to fronting for Bosnian Serb butcher Radovan Karadzic. Read more about it here and here.

The Guardian reports that the new Shearer document makes some of the same allegations about Mr. Trump as the original Christopher Steele dossier, including “lewd acts at a five-star hotel” in Moscow. It also notes that Steele passed on the Shearer report to the FBI in October 2016, but would not vouch for its accuracy. That’s worth pausing over.

According to the Guardian, Steele provided “a copy [of the Shearer report] because it corresponded with what he had separately heard from his own independent sources.” If the reporting here is accurate, that’s quite a coincidence—that Cody Shearer and Christopher Steele were hearing the same things from different sources at pretty much the same time. A closer look at timelines and sources might be revealing. If Sid and Cody are behind the original Russian dossier sources, that would be big news indeed.

So, there you have the comedy team of Sid and Cody, covert henchmen for Hillary Clinton, evidently acting as a two-man SWAT Team, dealing with Clinton enemies, foreign and domestic.

Blumenthal not only worked for the Puppet Master, George Soros, but for the Clintons and their money-laundering Foundation, as well.

With both Blumenthal and Shearer acting covertly in Libya at the behest of Secretary Clinton, it stands to reason, if you connect the dots, do the math, or just exercise some common sense, that they put together the Second Dossier with her full knowledge of their actions.

I don’t know about you, gentle readers, but I would love to witness an interrogation of the Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democrat Presidential Candidate under oath, being asked about her knowledge of “Spygate”.

Hillary would probably have another “accident” and show up wearing her “Coke Bottle” glasses again in order to receive sympathy.

And, what about her Former Boss, Barack Hussein Obama?

If you believe that he did not know about all of these covert operations being run by the State Department, the DOJ, and the FBI, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee to sell you.

Another key ingredient in this whole bloody mess is the fact that Blumenthal worked for George Soros before during and after writing the Second Dossier.

How heavily involved was Soros in this treasonous plot to overthrow the will of the American People?

Soros is certainly not above being involved in a plot to keep Trump from becoming President.

He pointed out his own neighbors to the Nazis.

He’s not above anything.

The desperation of all of these “bad actors” in this Machiavellian Plan would be funny after the results of the 2016 President Election…if they were not so treasonous.

I believe that it is time for a Final Act in this attempted Shakespearean Tragedy.

Since good triumphed over evil on November 8, 2016, it is time for an epilogue featuring a frog march of Federal Prisoners in Orange Jumpsuits, with Hillary and Obama leading all of their Deep State Covert Operatives out of a courtroom and into a waiting Prisoner Transport Van headed to the nearest Federal Prison.

I can’t wait for the results of the investigations of Inspector General Horowitz, John Durham, and John Huber.

I love a happy ending.

I certainly hope that Americans will get one.

With McCabe Indictment Looming, CNN Staffers Begin to Distance Themselves…TDS Has Consequences

September 13, 2019

ap-andrew-mccabe

…I’m just telling you, if these people — some of them — McCabe, Strzok Smirk, Lisa Page, any number of them. If there are indictments down the road — and we’ve still got a year and a half before the election, 14 months, whatever. You throw indictments in the mix, and that’s gonna snap people’s attention too, and that’s gonna move Trump’s approval numbers. Because that’s gonna be the legal system speaking, not Trump, not some political operative, not some Trump supporter in the media. People pay attention to indictments — and the fact that there were never any on Trump, never anything official (’cause they didn’t have anything). – Rush Limbaugh, 9/12/19

FoxNews.com reports that

CNN contributor Andrew McCabe is making waves at the cable news network after a U.S. attorney on Thursday recommended moving ahead with potential charges against the FBI honcho-turned-pundit.

McCabe, the former deputy and acting director of the FBI, appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy AG, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The potential charges relate to Justice Department inspector general findings against the CNN pundit regarding misleading statements tied to a Hillary Clinton-related investigation. The situation has raised eyebrows across the media industry and created a headache for the liberal-leaning CNN.

Some CNN staffers were reportedly aghast when the network hired McCabe in late August, simply because he’d been fired from the FBI for lying. Now that charges against McCabe are seemingly looming, some of the shock has turned to anger and confusion.

A current CNN on-air personality told Fox News this week that “it erodes our journalistic credibility to have so many highly anti-Trump, former Obama DOJ/security officials without a semblance of balance,” specifically pointing to pundits Samantha Vinograd, Jim Sciutto, Asha Rangappa, Juliette Kayyem and James Clapper, along with McCabe.

“It’s hard to see the justification for hiring him initially since it was publicly documented he’s, best case, a liar,” the on-air personality added. “How will CNN handle it if he’s also soon indicted?”

A second current CNN personality told Fox News on Thursday that many liberal-leaning staffers feel McCabe is “somewhat of a freedom fighter” who was “unfairly targeted” by the Trump administration. This was transparent on Thursday when CNN dispatched its top legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, to defend his “friend” McCabe while downplaying the potential charges.

“Andy McCabe is a CNN contributor. He’s a colleague and a friend to many of us who work here,” Toobin said. “This is an extremely unusual prosecution. Andy McCabe had the right to speak to reporters. That is beyond dispute. As deputy director of the FBI, he had the right to speak to reporters. He also has an impeccable record as one of the most honored and successful FBI agents of his generation.”

But not everyone inside CNN is defending McCabe.

The second anonymous on-air personality said he seems like a “good guy” in general but crucial blunders will ultimately define him.

“He made some colossal mistakes and the fact that he f—ing lied under oath, I have no sympathies for him,” the CNN staffer said. “How will [CNN] have him weigh in on anything related to integrity?”

The source predicted that CNN would “stand by McCabe until they can’t” and said network producers have kept McCabe out of situations where he could be “undressed” on-air by pundits with opposing views.

McCabe’s colleague also pointed out that CNN doesn’t typically refer to him as a “law enforcement analyst,” instead opting for the simpler label “correspondent.”

CNN did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment.

The FBI famously fired McCabe on March 16, 2018, after a Justice Department inspector general report found he had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Wall Street Journal regarding an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Last month, McCabe sued the FBI and the Justice Department over his firing, arguing it was part of President Trump’s plan to rid the bureau of leaders he perceived as disloyal to him.

DePauw University professor and frequent CNN critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that the ratings-challenged network made a “questionable” move by hiring McCabe in the first place and needs to keep him off TV while things play out.

“With this latest development, the move looks even worse. McCabe has credibility issues, and that is a problem for a news channel that has had its professional practices challenged of late,” McCall said. “At the least, it would behoove CNN to suspend McCabe from his contributor position until the legal process has worked its way out.”

Here’s the problem that the “Fake News Network” faces:

Not only did McCabe lie about leaking information about the Clinton Foundation Probe to the Wall Street Journal….back in February

McCabe told CBS’ News’ Scott Pelley during an interview that senior law enforcement officials discussed that option.

On Thursday, Pelley said McCabe described meetings at the Justice Department after former FBI Director Jim Comey’s firing, to discuss “whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president under the 25th Amendment.”

Of course, the covert Deep State Operation to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming president and then to remove him after he was fairly and justly elected by the American people began under the auspices of the Administration of Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

The incestuous nature of that covert operation resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice as large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.

This has been a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.

The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.

That is why the Democratic Party, spearheaded by Rep. Jerry Nadler and the House Judiciary Committee, are still attempting to overturn the results of a fair election.

As long as McCabe’s transgressions only included his involvement with the Deep State Silent Coup against Candidate/President Trump, CNN was cool with that.

However, now that the indictments are about to begin, the Liberals at CNN have begun distancing themselves from this albatross which they intentionally hung around their neck.

The plague of Trump Derangement Syndrome, which runs rampant throughout CNN, was the reason that they made the horrible business move of hiring the disgraced Former Acting Director of the FBI, even though they knew in the back of their little Liberal minds that there might be repercussions down the road for such a tone-deaf decision.

Perhaps they would have been better off if they had stayed away from him.

Not that it would have done any good for their ratings, the majority of Americans do not watch them, anyway.

Thank you, Mr. Haros: Son of 9/11 Victim Calls Out Rep. Ilhan Omar on Her 9/11 Snub “Some People Did Something”

September 12, 2019

composite_15682274908903-678x356

“I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.” – President George W. Bush

FoxNews.com reports that

Nicholas Haros Jr. wants Rep. Ilhan Omar and “the Squad” to know exactly who those “some people” are that perpetrated the “something” that took the life of his mom – and nearly 3,000 other people – 18 years ago.

The New Jersey resident, who lost his mother Frances in the 9/11 terror attacks, ripped the Minnesota congresswoman on Wednesday during a reading of victims’ names at Ground Zero after Omar’s infamous remarks earlier in the year in which she described the most horrific attack to ever occur on the American homeland simply as “some people did something.”

“Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom,” said Haros Jr., who sported a shirt with Omar’s words and was met with some applause from a crowd of families and relatives who had gathered for the ceremony. “Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”

He continued: “On that day 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al Qaeda, killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage. Is that clear?”

As Haros Jr. spoke, he was standing just steps away from the site of the former World Trade Center’s south tower — where his 76-year-old mother, Frances, walked into work one pleasant Tuesday morning and never returned home.

“But as to whom? I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked,” Haros Jr. said, looking out to the crowd. “Our constitutional freedoms were attacked and our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles was attacked.”

He added: “That’s what some people did,” Haros Jr. concluded. “Got that now? We are here today congresswoman to tell you and the Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please.”

Omar tweeted about the attacks on Wednesday around the same time Haros Jr. was making his remarks, though it wasn’t immediately clear if Omar’s tweet was in response to his words.

“September 11th was an attack on all of us,” she wrote. “We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil. I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget”

The “some people did something” comment from Omar that drew such widespread criticism was made at a March 23 fundraiser for the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations.

“Here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” she said. “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley – the other three members of the Democrat quartet dubbed “The Squad” – sprang to Omar’s defense, with Tlaib telling MSNBC that Omar’s words were taken out of context.

“They do that all the time, especially women of color, they take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth, we speak truth to power,” Tlaib said.

Haros Jr., in a 2001 interview with the Staten Island Advance, described his mom as a tireless receptionist at Keefe Bruyette & Woods, a financial firm that had office space on the 88th and 89th floors of the World Trade Center’s south tower.

“The traders used to treat her like an office mother,” he told the newspaper at the time, noting she chose to continue working that year instead of retiring. “Until she couldn’t physically walk or crawl, she was going to work.”

…“Stop. Stop, please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater,” Haros Jr. declared. “Their lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more.”

In case you have not seen the video in which Rep. Omar made the horrible statement that Mr. Haros was referring to, here it is…

While I was surfing social media yesterday, I saw Liberals once again claiming that we average Americans, misunderstood what Rep. Omar was saying.

This was no “misunderstanding” of what she said and meant. Rep. Omar is most definitely a Radical Islamist.

Per GatewayPundit.com,

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS – anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.

Per their website BDSMovement.net,

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.

Of course, Representative Omar is also supported by and supportive of CAIR – The Council on American-Islamic Relations.

…From its inception, CAIR has sought to portray itself as a moderate, mainstream organization, and as early as 1996 its officials became frequent guests at State Department and White House events. In the aftermath of 9/11, when the Bush administration tried to reassure American Muslims that Islam was not the target of the war on terrorism, CAIR officials were prominent among the invitees. CAIR was the main Islamic group to gain U.S. media access in the post-9/11 period, providing the “Muslim view” of the terrorist attacks and of America’s response to them. As self-acclaimed Muslim spokesmen, CAIR officials typically refused to “simplify the situation” by blaming Osama bin Laden for the attacks on America. Moreover, while they eventually were induced by journalists to condemn Palestinian suicide terror in a pro forma manner, they hedged their disavowals by describing it as an understandable response to Israeli brutality.

A few months back, Fox News’ Jesse Watters had had enough of Ilhan Omar blaming America for everthing wrong in the world.

“I would issue a challenge to her. Omar, please say one good thing about America,” Watters said on “The Five” on Thursday.

“We hear her so much saying what’s wrong with America. Just say what you’re proud of. I think that would counterbalance some of the negativity that you hear coming out of her mouth.”

Jesse is still waiting for a response.

He should not have expected one from her, anyway.

After all, the woman is an anti-American, anti-Semite Muslim from Somalia who married her own brother to keep him from being deported.

Words mean things.

Rep. Omar is, quite simply, an enemy of the nation which she has sworn an oath to serve.

It is way past time that she called out for it.

It was not “airplanes” who kill 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001 as the failing New York Times headline claimed yesterday.

Indeed, it was 19 Radical Islamist Terrorists who slaughtered innocent Americans that fateful day.

Thank you, Mr. Haros, for doing what needed to be done.

Your mother would be proud.

May God bless  all of the families of the fallen.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

18 Years After 9/11…Why We Must NEVER Forget

September 11, 2019

a05_61124_10

In some ways it does not seem like it has been 18 years since the worst Terrorist Attack ever perpetrated on American soil.

In other ways, it seems like an eternity.

That horrible day was so surreal. It seemed to me like I was stuck in a nightmare.

Certainly this couldn’t be happening to us? We’re the greatest nation in the world. Who in their right mind, would dare attack the United States of America? Who would be brazen enough to attack us, using instruments of our own design? Who would actually dare flying planes into the Twin Towers, a living symbol of American Prosperity?

For that matter,. who would fly a plane into the Pentagon? The Seat of Power behind our nation’s awesome Military, the finest collection of Fighting Men and Women on Earth?

It was not a nightmare. It was a reality.

I remember seeing that first plane crash into the World Trade Center.

I remember the look of incredulity and panic on the faces of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and E.D. Hill, as they watched from the set of Fox and Friends that fateful morning.

I remember the second plane on its approach, and the horrifying realization that this was no accident… that America was under attack. An attack, which turned out to have been planned and executed by Osama bin Laden, and a group of Saudi Arabians, members of the Muslim Terrorist Group, known as al-Qaeda.

I remember the images of Americans jumping out of windows to their certain death, rather than be consumed by the fires, raging around them.

I remember the sickening thud as they hit the pavement.

I remember the images of the brave NYC Policemen and Firemen as they rushed into the World Trade Center…never to return.

I remember watching the First Tower collapse…then, the second one.

I remember a heroic Mayor Rudy Giuliani, out in the middle of the devastation, doing whatever he could to get New Yorkers to safety.

I remember President George W. Bush coming on television, with a look of steely determination, as he announced that we would be avenged.

I remember him standing on that heap of rubble that used to be a part of the World Trade Center, side by side with that fireman, telling the assembled crowd, through his bullhorn, that “the world will hear from us”.

And, it did.

And, here we are, 18 years removed from that nightmarish day, with a President of the United States, who since taking office, has put those responsible for the scourge of Radical Islamic Terrorism on notice, in stark contrast to his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, who gave Iran the means to obliterate our nation in a flash of light and the dust of a mushroom cloud and, who was so disrespected by that very same nation that they not only taunted our warships and airplanes in the Persian Gulf with impunity, they boarded our vessels, kidnapping our sailors and holding them for ransom.

Under our current Commander-in-Chief that would have never happened. President Trump does not bow down to Radical Islamists as witnessed by his recent cancelling of negotiations with the Taliban.

During the days after 9/11/2001, political affiliation, race, gender, personal philosophy, did not matter.

WE WERE AMERICANS.

This country came together, in a way in which I had never before seen in my lifetime (which, is a pretty long time).

Now, look at us.

We have Radical Muslims (and Marxists) occupying seats in the House of Representatives and displaying their ignorance and disdain for our country.

Like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who infamously said,

“Some people did something.”

Americans must continue to stand firm and to once again come together and let our “public servants” in the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C know that we stand against those who would embrace our enemies instead of serving our Sovereign Nation, as they were elected to do.

Also, we remember those who left us on that September Morning so long ago, and say a prayer for them and the Four Americans whom we lost on the grounds of a US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya. All these years later, they still deserve no less.

On September 11, 2001, Radical Islamists attacked us on our own soil and murdered over 3,000 Americans, and if given the opportunity, they will not hesitate to do it again.

We must not allow the Far Left ideologues of the modern Democratic Party any more opportunities to bring about “radical change” in America through the appeasement of our enemies which, under Former President Barack Hussin Obama, included pay-offs, acquiescence, and giving them the means of our nation’s destruction.

America was NEVER meant to be “just another country”.

We must stand united as a nation and continue to reclaim our heritage as “The Shining City Upon a Hill”.

The lives lost on September 11, 2001…and September 11, 2012…demand it.

DNC Chairman: “Our Democracy As We Know It Is On The Ballot”…Dems Still Do Not Realize We’re a Constitutional Republic

September 10, 2019

untitled (280)

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has ramped up the rhetoric ahead of 2020, claiming “democracy as we know it” is at stake next year.

Speaking about his party’s crowded crop of 2020 hopefuls, Perez said he believes there are many talented options who can defeat “Hurricane Donald” at the ballot box.

“ Everyone in the democratic family is going to come together because we understand it’s our democracy as we know it that’s on the ballot,” Perez said Sunday during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”

“This is Hurricane Donald. It’s a category 5 storm. In the eye of the storm is our democracy. We need to take our democracy back.

“All our candidates understand the gravity of the moment. They understand whoever wins, they’ll support the Democrat.

“Howard Schultz said if I can’t win, I’m not going to run. I appreciate that.”

In the same interview, Perez defended the criteria to qualify for the party’s next presidential primary debate, calling it a “fair bar” for the White House hopefuls to meet.

Perez’s comments come ahead of the upcoming Democratic debate on Thursday, where 10 candidates meeting the required 2 percent support in four qualifying polls and 130,000 unique donors will be on stage in Houston, Texas. The criteria to qualify for Thursday’s debate increased from the previous two, where 20 candidates sparred in two debates over consecutive nights.

“It’s going to be up to the voters to decide who this candidate is and I think our process has been the most fair, transparent and inclusive process in the history of the Democratic primary,” he said.

Perez’s comments come amid criticism from numerous mid-tier Democratic presidential primary hopefuls who failed to make the cut for Thursday’s debate.

While the criticism is not new – the DNC faced similar jabs earlier this year when many of the longer-shots for the nomination struggled to make the stage at the first and second round of debates – this time around the national party committee is specifically being attacked over the dearth of qualifying polls. Critics say this is unfairly preventing candidates close to qualifying from actually making the stage.

Before I begin, please allow me to tell you that I am no political pundit.

I am just an average guy who began writing back in April of 2010 in order to vent my frustration with the destruction of the America being wrought by President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) and his Democrat henchmen and women in Congress.

And, I believe that DNC Chairman and Radical Hispanic Political Tom Perez is absolutely wrong.

That being said, I have no wish to see a repeat of the nightmarish 8 years known as the Obama Presidency.

I do not believe that the overwhelming majority of Americans living between the coasts do, either.

Here is why I believe that President Trump will be re-elected.

Last night, American Citizens from coast to coast heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Just like Trump did with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.

You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As the polls continue to show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises, as he reminded us last night.

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as his predecessor did.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

That is why the Democrats continue to attempt to impeach the president without actually impeaching him.

My fellow average Americans, we are only a means back to power for the “Party of Special Interest Groups”, known as the Far Left Democratic Party.

Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made the average Americans whom the Democrats named “Deplorables” feel good about ourselves and our role in determining our future.

The Democrats, as exemplified by their Chairman, Tom Perez, still refuse to admit that America is a Constitutional Republic, NOT a Democracy governed by mob rule.

Our Founding Fathers ensured that e3very citizens vote would be equal and that every state would be important in choosing our president.

That means that my vote here in Northwest Mississippi means just as much as those Americans who reside in the heavily populated areas on the East and Left Coasts.

All of the economic progress made, the strengthening of our military, the Campaign Promises kept, his championing of average Americans, and his unequaled advocacy for American Exceptionalism makes President Donald J. Trump a “radical change” worth keeping in office for 4 more years.

Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee to Vote This Week to Formalize Procedures of Impeachment Inquiry

September 9, 2019

fog-of-war-dt-600

“Aye, aye! and I’ll chase him round Good Hope, and round the Horn, and round the Norway Maelstrom, and round perdition’s flames before I give him up.” – Rep. Jerry Nadler…err…Captain Ahab from Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick”

From The New York Times via msn.com

The House Judiciary Committee plans to vote this week to formalize procedures for a growing impeachment inquiry, clarifying its investigative authorities and granting President Trump new due process, a draft resolution shows.

The Judiciary Committee took similar steps in the 1970s and 1990s when it conducted impeachment inquiries into Presidents Richard M. Nixon and Bill Clinton. Now, as then, Democrats believe the resolution, a copy of which was reviewed by The New York Times, will allow the panel to speed up its work and potentially elicit more information than it otherwise could about instances of possible obstruction of justice and abuses of power by Mr. Trump.

The development carries significant symbolic weight, as well.

Though the committee has already informed federal courts and the public that it is in the midst of a full-scale impeachment inquiry, the three-page resolution will be the first time lawmakers have recorded a vote to that effect. Committee leaders hope the move will send a signal to Congress and the White House that their investigation is not only proceeding but intensifying, even as the broader Democratic Party caucus remains divided over the merits of ultimately voting to impeach Mr. Trump.

Based on the committee’s investigative plans, the new procedures could be put to the test quickly in the coming weeks.

The committee is preparing to rapidly broaden the substance of the inquiry this fall beyond the investigation into any role by Trump associates in Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election. On the agenda for new scrutiny are Mr. Trump’s role in illegal hush payments to women who said they had affairs with him, reports that he dangled pardons to immigration officials and whether his hotels and resorts have illegally profited from government spending.

If adopted, the new procedures would allow the committee’s chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, to designate hearings of either the full Judiciary Committee or its subcommittees to be a part of the inquiry and subject to special rules. Though it sounds inconsequential, including the smaller, nimbler subcommittees in the inquiry would allow Democrats to speed up their work or steer less significant witnesses to the smaller panels.

Another provision says that after lawmakers themselves have exhausted time for questioning, committee staff members would be allowed to question a witness “for an additional hour equally divided between the majority and minority.” Democrats hope the arrangement will allow for more detailed, uninterrupted questioning.

The resolution also sets out standards that say information collected by the committee from witnesses or grand jury information shared by the courts should be kept private unless Mr. Nadler chooses otherwise.

And, for the first time, Mr. Trump and his legal team would be afforded specific due process by the committee, allowing them to regularly offer input on the findings of the investigation.

“The president’s counsel may respond in writing to information and testimony presented to the committee in open session,” the resolution says, adding that Mr. Trump’s lawyers may also be invited to review and respond to information kept secret if the chairman chooses.

One of the aides involved in drafting the resolution said that the president’s lawyers could yet play a larger, in-person role, as well, if they requested it.

There may be other benefits to taking a procedural vote, too. Though the resolution does not mention matters of decorum, Democrats believe the vote to adopt it will allow lawmakers to get around normal House rules that limit their ability to accuse the president of crime, the aide said.

The Judiciary Committee plans to finalize the resolution on Monday, the aides said, and could vote as soon as Wednesday to adopt it. Details of the procedures were first reported on Friday by Politico after Judiciary Committee aides briefed lawmakers on the planned vote, but the draft text has not previously been reported.

Lawmakers from the president’s party have oscillated between criticizing the mechanics of Democrats’ investigation and dismissing their’ impeachment efforts as a pathetic and futile hunt for nonexistent evidence to oust Mr. Trump. But without the votes to overpower the Democrats, they have little recourse but to vocally object.

“If they really want to do this, they have to bring impeachment to the floor,” the top Republican on the committee, Representative Doug Collins of Georgia, said on Fox News on Sunday. “This is simply a show. It is a travesty. And, frankly, they should be ashamed.”

The Judiciary Committee has been edging toward a full-scale impeachment inquiry since the spring, when Democrats began calling witnesses and demanding evidence related to a range of potential presidential misconduct.

But only in July, after testimony from Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, did the committee formally declare to a judge that what had begun as a regular congressional oversight investigation was now primarily focused on whether to recommend articles of impeachment.

Regardless of what THEY believe, Nadler and the rest of the House Democrats are not the Head of the three branches of our Constitutional Republic.

The House of Representatives was established by our Founding Fathers to be like the British House of Commons, that is, the LOWER House of Congress with the Senate being patterned after the House of Lords, or, the UPPER House.

The president does not answer to Congress. He can act on his own accord concerning matters of national security and foreign policy. And, the Judicial Branch has the ability to overturn legislation passed by Congress.

In their horrible grief over the disappointing outcomes of both the 2016 President Election and the Special Counsel’s Investigation, the Democratic Party, as evidenced by the Judicial Committees in both Houses of Congress, has been experiencing a psychotic break for quite a while now.

When Nadler and the House Dems voted to allow their staff to question the top Law Enforcement Officer in America, Attorney General William Barr,  it was an insult perpetrated in the name of pettiness and mean-spirited arrogance designed to insult AG Barr and President Trump.

If Formal Impeachment Hearings do come to pass, the spectacle of having Congressional Staffers question witnesses will only further define Congressional Democrats as being imperious out-of -control egotistical wannabe dictators.

They cannot and will not accept the reality in front of them.

With the majority of Americans in a CNN Poll released on May 1st saying that they do not want President Trump to be impeached, the Democrats evidently are determined to destroy their party’s chance of winning the 2020 Presidential Election, if they even have one.

To be truthful, I believe that the chance of building a snowman in Hell has better odds that the out-of-control Marxist Democrats have of winning the Presidency in 2020.

What are Nadler and the rest of the Democrats going to do when IG Horowitz’ and Attorney General Barr’s investigations both report the nefarious details of a silent coup to destroy both the Trump Presidential Campaign and his Presidency?

Why is it that the song “The Inquisition” from Mel Brook’s “The History of the World, Part 1”, keeps running through my mind?

Oy vey!

The War on Christianity: Drew Brees, the Bible, and the Worshipers of Political Correctness

September 8, 2019

DB-Edit

FoxNews.com reports that

NFL quarterback Drew Brees defended himself this week after critics slammed a video in which the New Orleans Saints star encouraged Christian students to participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day.

Many of the critics opposed the Brees video because it was backed by Focus on the Family, a group frequently accused of being anti-gay. The group has previously been attacked for endorsing “conversion therapy,” an often discredited practice of trying to change a person’s sexual orientation.

An article in The Christian Post, however, cited a 2018 study that suggested sexual orientation change efforts have improved the mental health of mostly Christian men who have struggled with sexual identity issues.

But after critics targeted Brees on social media for associating with the group – with some accusing the former Purdue University star himself of being anti-gay — Brees posted a second video Thursday, this time on his own Twitter account.

“Hopefully this sets the record straight with who I am and what I stand for,” Brees wrote above the video. “Love, Respect, and Accept ALL. I encourage you not to believe the negativity you read that says differently. It’s simply not true. Have a great day.”

In the video, Brees says: “I do not support any groups that discriminate or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality.”

Brees then spoke with reporters in an attempt to further clarify where he stands.

He said he believes he was unfairly and mistakenly accused of being anti-gay, and that he participated in the video solely to promote Bring Your Bible to School Day, not to endorse “any type of hate.”

“I know that there are, unfortunately, Christian organizations out there that are involved in that kind of thing,” he said, according to ESPN. “And to me, that is totally against what being a Christian is all about. Being a Christian is love, it’s forgiveness, it’s respecting all, it’s accepting all.”

In a video posted on YouTube, Jim Daly of Colorado Springs, Colo.-based Focus on the Family also clarified that the organization is not a hate group.

“Our goal is to say, ‘Jesus loves you, cares about you, no matter who you are — your race, your creed, your sexual orientation. Jesus died for every one of us.’ That’s the message we want to get out,” Daly said.

Why are Modern American Liberals so afraid Christians and our sharing of God’s Holy Word?

During the Obama Administration, I wrote an ongoing series of articles highlighting “The War on Christianity” being waged, at that time, on an almost daily basis by that President and his Administration, along with the Democratic Party’s minions in the Main Stream Media.

Now, we have a different President and Vice-President, who, gasp, actually support Christianity in America and are not shy about invoking the Name of God Almighty in their public speeches.

Heaven forbid! Well…Heaven doesn’t forbid…it encourages.

What is amazing to me, though, is how, as in the case of Drew Brees and his suggestion, American Christianity continues to be attacked by Liberals on all fronts:  militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.

From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, than those of us who actually read God’s Word.

Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22

The thought of an omnipresent God interferes with Modern Liberals’ belief that they are the most important thing in the universe.

You see, as long as they are the master of their own destiny, which in fact they are, because God gives us free will, their selfish behavior and their sinful lifestyle, present no personal consequences to them, and therefore, do not keep them awake at night. And yet, when you enter into a conversation with a member of this hedonistic generation, you soon find out that they aren’t as personally happy with their lifestyle choices, as they want you to believe that they are. Consequently, this whole effort by Political and Social Liberals alike, to push a new set of morals, values, and ethics on average Christian Americans, stems from the fact that they are all miserable, selfish, little cretins, who want their poor lifestyle choices validated and deemed as normal.

As I have stated before, America remains 75% Christian. And, this fact drives the Far left, including the current “Selfish Generation”, absolutely crazy….and desperate.

The attack on Drew Brees’ and his suggestion that children bring their Bibles to school is no surprise.

Liberals do not want a rebibal breaking out among American’s schoolchildren who they are traying so hard to brainwash with THEIR belief system.

That being said, isn’t it interesting that those among us who claim to be the most tolerant are actually the least tolerant of all?

And, those who claim to be champions of “personal freedom” are enemies of the religious freedom secured for us in the United States Constitution and the faith of 75% of us?

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. – Matthew 7:20

Sanders Advocates Birth Control, Including Abortions, in Third World Nations as a Way to Combat Climate Change…No, Really

September 7, 2019

190904205512-03-bernie-sanders-climate-town-hall-super-169

…It’s about scaring people. In fact, if you take these people to some of these really polluted places, you could scare them even more. You’re thinking that these people are attacking the United States as the problem and we gotta change life in the United States, which is what the Democrats want to do. The reason they want to do that is simple, power for themselves. They need to disempower as many Americans as possible to achieve their own power objectives as people that run your life, my life, and government. – Rush Limbaugh 9/6/19

From BusinessInsider.com via MSN.com

During a climate change town hall hosted by CNN, a teacher named Martha Readyoff brought up population growth and said that while she recognised it’s a “poisonous” topic for politicians she felt it was “reasonable” to bring up in the context of discussions on climate.

“Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact,” said Readyoff, going on to ask Sanders if he would be “courageous enough to discuss the issue.”

“Well, Martha, the answer is yes,” Sanders said. “The answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies, and make reproductive decisions.”

“The Mexico City agreement which denies American aide to those organisations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control to me is totally absurd,” Sanders added. “So I think, especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies, and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very, very strongly support.”

Sanders was widely criticised by conservatives on social media over his comments, highlighting how thorny this issue is – particularly in the US, where abortion continues to be a hotbed political topic.

In response to the Vermont senator’s remarks, Steve Guest, the rapid response director for the GOP, tweeted: “Bernie Sanders: abort poor babies for population control.”

Similarly, CNN host S.E. Cupp in a tweet said, “Let’s just state for the record: talking about needing ‘population control’ through ABORTION for the sake of CLIMATE is talking about EUGENICS. The fact that @BernieSanders is willing to entertain this vile idea is not only disgusting, it should be disqualifying.”

Indeed, when people hear the phrase “curb population growth” in can conjure up thoughts of eugenics, China’s controversial one-child policy, and Malthusianism.

But there’s also a fair amount of research that backs up the notion improving access to birth control and voluntary family planning could help slow global warming.

For example, a 2010 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences that examined the link between population growth and carbon emissions found “slowing population growth could provide 16-29% of the emissions reductions suggested to be necessary by 2050 to avoid dangerous climate change.”

And a 2017 study from Lund University found having fewer children was among four high-impact ways to reduce carbon emissions in addition to living without a car, avoiding aeroplane travel, and eating a vegetarian diet.

“I knew this was a sensitive topic to bring up,” study co-author Kimberly Nicholas said on NPR’s Morning Edition in July 2017. “Certainly it’s not my place as a scientist to dictate choices for other people. But I do think it is my place to do the analysis and report it fairly.”

Along these lines, experts have repeatedly pointed to improving access to contraceptives – especially in poorer countries that are more likely to bear the brunt of climate change – as a way to help slow global warming while also making it easier for communities to adjust to its impact.

Clive Mutunga, a PHE technical advisor for the Office of Population and Reproductive Health at the US Agency for International Development, in 2016 told the Wilson Centre: “Investing in family planning and reproductive health care is one of the ways that [we] can help families, individuals, and communities to better adapt to the effects of climate change.”

The UN projects the global population will grow from 7.7 billion in the present day to 9.7 billion in 2050. Based on the UN’s projections and data from British risk consultancy Verisk Maplecroft a recent analysis from Time found the 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change will experience population booms in the coming decades.

Though less developed countries emit far less carbon emissions than wealthy nations like the US, they are far more at risk of being negatively affected by global warming and its byproducts.

This helps explain why curbing population growth, albeit a sensitive issue, is becoming a central aspect of discussions on climate change.

Tell me, gentle readers, does it shock you that avowed socialist Bernie Sanders is coldly suggesting ending human lives in the womb for the sake of a pseudoscience which nobody has EVER proven to actually be a FACT?

It shouldn’t.

Isn’t it fascinating how the Liberals’ ongoing crusade against “Climate Change” has become an excuse to install a Marxist Government in America?

“Professional Socialist” Bernie Sanders never needs an excuse to promote cradle-to-grave governmental control over the lives of American Citizens but, with Thursday night’s advice for millennials, he was able to combine the pseudoscience of Climate Change with Population Control, such as is mandated in Communist China.

According to TheFederalist.com,

For thousands of years, China didn’t have a population policy. Traditional Chinese culture believes that having many children is a blessing from heaven. Even after Communists took over China in 1949, Chairman Mao continued to encourage Chinese women to have as many babies as possible, because more babies meant more future foot-soldiers for his Communist Revolution. Under his rule, China’s population grew from 660 million in 1961 (after the Chinese famine) to 930 million in 1976.

When Mao passed away in 1976, he left China in such economic shambles that China’s per capita GDP was merely $162, only slightly better than Bangladesh ($142) but worse than Afghanistan ($200). Chinese leaders believed China’s economy couldn’t support a population any larger. By 1979, China’s population grew to 980 million and Chinese leaders decided to implement the one-child policy in order to curb population growth.

…The Chinese government finally relaxed the one-child policy in 2015 by telling the Chinese people, “now you are allowed to have two kids.” The Chinese government didn’t make this change out of any benevolence towards its people, but out of cold calculation of statistics: China’s working age population is shrinking and there is a huge gender imbalance. All are directly caused by the 35-year-old one-child policy.

As heard during the Friday edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh, had this opinion about Sanders and company’s combining of Birth Control and Climate Change…

Now, those of you who have been regular listeners here from the get-go I’m sure will remember all of the stories that I’ve shared with you over the course of the past three decades where climate wackos, environmentalist wackos literally believe that humanity is the problem.  We are not part of nature.  We’re somehow separate from nature.  Animals are natural. Insects are natural. Plants and animals and so forth, they’re natural.

Water is natural. Dirt, rocks, all that stuff, that’s natural.  We’re not.  We are somehow… We’ve been introduced as aliens in all this, and we’re destroying it, and so the only way to really save the planet is to get rid of people.  Then Paul Ehrlich came out with his book in the seventies called The Population Bomb predicting that by the year 2000 the planet would not be able to feed over half the population of the planet.  He was dead wrong about it!  He’s still an oracle.  He’s still considered an expert at Stanford University.

So as each of these predictions are wildly wrong and are inaccurate, they double down and triple down and make even crazier predictions.  Bernie Sanders literally proposed mass abortion as a means of population control.  In another rally, he told a mother to “shut up” a crying thing.  These people, folks, I’m telling you, they are a step away… They’re proposing mass suicide, is what they’re doing.  Mass abortion is mass suicide! They’re scaring people into thinking there’s no reason to live!  And then they want to get into mass slaughter!

All of this for the climate. All of this to save the planet.

“Climate Change” and Marxism have a lot in common. They both seek to limit people’s personal freedom and neither one of them have ever been proven to be viable. They both remain theories.

They also both require a great deal of arrogance to be absorbed as a belief…the kind of arrogance which enables to believe to accept the falsehood that he or she is their own god, cable of controlling the Earth’s weather and judging how much freedom an individual should have to control their own daily lives and destiny.

The Far Left champions of Democratic Socialism or “The New Bolsheviks” as I have dubbed them, are no less dangerous than the original ones who did the bidding of Vladimir Lenin by overthrowing the Czar and installing Marxist Theory in the form of Communism as the governing rule of law in Russia.

Today’s Far Left Democratic Party, as exemplified by “Professional Socialist” Bernie Sanders, wish to exchange our American Liberty for the fascism and subjugation of Marxism, self-assured that they will finally be the ones to make it “work”.

The late great Slim Pickens, as Major T. J. Kong in Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove”, finally got that nuclear bomb his plane was carrying to work…but he had to ride it to Hell in order to do it.

If the before-mentioned “Professional Socialist” Bernie Sanders and his fellow travelers ever gain control of our Sovereign Nation, America will go on that same ride.

DNC Cuts Number of Primary Candidates in Next Debate to 10….And They Still Won’t Beat Trump

September 6, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

The Democratic National Committee made it official on Thursday – as media partner ABC News formally unveiled the list of White House hopefuls who’ve qualified for the upcoming third round of presidential primary debates.

The lineup is much smaller this time around. It’s been slashed in half after numerous candidates failed to make the cut by not attracting enough donors or support in the polls.

Unlike the two-night, 20-candidate showdown last month, just 10 candidates will face off on a single night in the upcoming debate in September. They are: former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro; Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

That means for the first time, all the top contenders will face off in the three-hour showdown on Sept. 12 in Houston.

Warren – who has soared in recent months and is neck-and-neck with fellow progressive standard-bearer Sanders – will finally share the stage with Biden, the front-runner in the race, as well as with Harris, another top-tier contender.

Biden and Warren will be standing center stage – with Sanders next to the former vice president and Harris next to Warren. Next to Sanders will be Buttigieg and then Booker. Next to Harris will be Yang and then O’Rourke. Klobuchar and Castro will stand at the edges of the stage.

For some Democrats frustrated by size of the record-setting field of 2020 White House hopefuls – which reached roughly two-dozen earlier this summer – the winnowing of the candidates who actually make the debate stage drew praise.

“I’m looking forward to getting to the place — assuming I’m still around — that it gets down to a smaller number of people so we can have more of a discussion instead of one-minute assertions,” Biden told reporters Wednesday following a campaign event in South Carolina.

But the tightened rules led to complaints from those pushed to the side.

To make the cut, contenders had until midnight Wednesday to reach two DNC thresholds – campaign contributions from 130,000 individual donors and reaching at least 2 percent in four qualifying national or early voting state polls.

Ahead of the deadline, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington State, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts dropped out the race. Inslee and Moulton announced re-election bids and Hickenlooper launched a Senate run in Colorado, in hopes of defeating incumbent GOP Sen. Cory Gardner.

And hours ahead of the deadline, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ended her White House bid. The New York State Democrat had told Fox News last week that “I’m planning on making this round.”

But she called it quits after her multi-million dollar TV and digital ad push and the beefing up of her ground game in Iowa and New Hampshire – the first two states to vote in the nominating calendar – failed to help her qualify. Gillibrand described not making the stage as “fatal” to her White House bid.

Most of the rest of the field of contenders say – at least for now – that they’re not quitting, as they aim to return to the debate stage for October’s fourth round, which has the same qualifying thresholds as the third round.

Oh, the excitement.

To paraphrase a song by the Little River Band (look them up, boys and girls)…

Have you heard about the Ten Dem Losers?

None of them could beat Trump on Election Day

There is simply no excitement building for any of the Democratic Primary Candidates.

That being said, I believe that the Dems will nominate a Far Left Presidential Candidate

And, it’s for the identical reason that they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Democrats Continue to remain out-of-touch with the majority of Americans.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News (except for Fox News) Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion”, Racism, an upcoming Recession, and “unfair treatment of asylum seekers” on our Southern Border, he should be as unpopular as Rosie O’Donnell at an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

But then again, according to those same news outlets, Hillary Clinton should be president, as there was no way the American Voters were going to elect Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America.

The past two-plus years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

With Mueller’s Investigation failing to produce the desired results, the Democrats continue to try to sabotage Trump by any means necessary.

The problem that the Democrats refuse to face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

Democrats have learned nothing at all from their time out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

The Far Left Democratic Party Hierarchy and Primary Candidates are so far removed in their lifestyles and political philosophy from average Americans that they cannot even understand the reason that the Electoral College was put into place was to prevent the nightmarish, despotic, fascist version of America which they are trying to achieve.

Thank God and Our brilliant Founding Fathers who established our Sovereign Nation as a Constitutional Republic and not a mob-ruled “Democracy” which could easily be manipulated into accepting a Marxist form of government.

When you watch the Ten Dem Losers answer softball questions from ABC Main Stream Media Minions during the upcoming debate, please notice how many of their “needed” giveaways are for the benefit of special interest groups but are using average Americans’ money collected through promised higher taxes.

And, think to yourself, does America really need one of these clowns as the Leader of the greatest nation on the face of the Earth?

Your answer will be “NO”.

Until He Comes,
