MSNBC Guest Slams Trump Supporters: ” You Do Not Negotiate With These People — You Destroy Them”

August 14, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

Above the Law executive editor Elie Mystal told MSNBC viewers Sunday that they should try to “destroy” President Trump’s supporters at the ballot box.

“You don’t communicate it to them — you beat them. Beat them. They are not a majority of this country. The majority of white people in this country are not a majority of the country,” Mystal said while appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.” “And all the people who are not fooled by this need to come together, go to the polls, go to the protests, do whatever you have to do. You do not negotiate with these people — you destroy them.”

Host Joy Reid apparently realized her guest’s comment could be taken as inflammatory and quickly intervened. “The black man said ‘beat them,’ meaning in an election,” she said as Mystal added “figuratively.”

Mystal’s comments came amid a renewed discussion about whether heated political rhetoric could contribute to acts of violence. Many Democrats and members of the media have claimed that Trump’s words influenced the suspected gunman in this month’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

Mystal also argued that Trump supporters like real estate mogul Stephen Ross were just as “complicit” in Trump’s hardline policy toward immigrants as “the man himself.”

“The children who are orphaned on the streets of Mississippi see no moral distinction because Stephen Ross got a tax cut to look the other way while their parents were being abducted,” said Mystal, referring to last week’s immigration raids at seven food processing plants in Mississippi.

Mystal previously called for “pitchforks and torches” outside of Ross’ home on Long Island where he was scheduled to hold a pricey fundraiser for Trump this weekend.

“I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice. There’s no reason it has to be,” he said. “There’s no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood.”

Who is Elie Mystal?

According to his bio on abovethelaw.com, a Liberal Website about law and the legal profession…

Prior to joining ATL, Elie wrote about politics and popular culture at City Hall News and the New York Press. Elie received a degree in Government from Harvard University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. He was formerly a litigator at Debevoise & Plimpton but quit the legal profession to pursue a career as an online provocateur.

I guess “provocateur” sounds better than political activist, Media Gadfly, and TDS sufferer.

About his reference to the ICE Raids which occurred recently in Mississippi: The ICE Agents are not responsible for the children who were left in the care of others after the raids.

Their parents, who broke into our Sovereign Nation and stayed here ILLEGALLY, are.

Perhaps Mr. Mystal left the legal profession because he did not understand the meaning of the word “ILLEGAL”.

But, I digress…

Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, as represented by this “provocateur”, i.e., race-baiting Liberal Political Activist, telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again” through the election of Donald J. Trump to the office of the President of the United States of America.

I have heard this kind of garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as the members of Antifa, who seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have bore witness to the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, as exemplified by this guest on the world’s least-watched Cable News Network, MSNBC, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we saw play out, as paid and unpaid protestors attempted to stop the Nomination and Installation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as our latest Associate Justice on the Supreme Court Trump’s Campaign Rallies, in an attempt to somehow halt the fulfilling of President Trump’s Campaign Promises in order to stop comeback of America which he has been responsible for and to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

If you have ever attempted to debate a Liberal on a Facebook Political Page or a Political Website, they always attempt to present their opinions as facts, with nothing by Political Rhetoric to back them up.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” by the Democratic Leadership, while promising to somehow restore Barack Hussein Obama’s “share the wealth” failed Domestic Policy, has inspired these self-absorbed Modern American Liberals to act like the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, in an attempt to create a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression” for the sole purpose, as Senator Lindsey Graham pointed out in the Kavanaugh Hearings, to gain back their political power.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny and the danger of mob rule.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors of the Presidency of Donald  J. Trump that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by attempting to destroy a good man through lies and innuendos or by strong-arming and harassing those who refuse to believe the way they do, for the expressed purpose of denying someone their First Amendment Rights.

Our Constitution, in fact, allowed then-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to call all of us who believe in Traditional American Values and the preservation of American as the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth “Deplorables”.

However, that same Constitution, which Americans have fought and died for to preserve, also gives me the right to label Elie Mystal’s self-entitlement-driven condescending Political Ideology for what it actually is:

“HYPOCRITICAL INTOLERANCE”.

Movie About Liberal Elites Hunting “Deplorables” Set for September Release…Billed as a “Satire”…Really?

August 8, 2019

Betty-Gilpin-in-The-Hunt-movie-2019-1

Gentle readers, American Society is rapidly nearing the bottom of the proverbial “slippery slope”.

FoxNews.com reports that

A controversial movie about privileged vacationers hunting “deplorables” for sport is ruffling feathers more than a month before its scheduled release and after tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

“The Hunt” is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers taking a private jet to a five-star resort where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing designated humans. The Hollywood Reporter reported on Tuesday that “Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire” following the shootings after ESPN reportedly pulled a trailer for the film that had been previously cleared to air on the sports network.

“The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals,” THR’s Kim Masters wrote. “It features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey.”

“The Hunt” is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers taking a private jet to a five-star resort where they hunt “deplorables” for sport.
According to the Hollywood trade publication, characters in the film refer to the victims as “deplorables,” which is what Hillary Clinton famously dubbed Trump supporters during the 2016 election. The report noted that a character asks, “Did anyone see what our ratf–ker-in-chief just did?”

“At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables,” a character responds, according to THR.

“Out of sensitivity to the attention on the country’s recent shooting tragedies, Universal Pictures and the filmmakers of The Hunt have temporarily paused its marketing campaign and are reviewing materials as we move forward,” a Universal Pictures spokesperson told Fox News late Wednesday.

DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that the movie is “harmful to a culture that surely needs messages of unity and understanding” during the current climate.

“It says something sad about the state of the ‘entertainment’ industry that this movie ever got conceived and produced. Hollywood clearly thinks it is OK to stereotype so-called deplorables and set them up for a hunt,” McCall said. “Thank heavens some sensible outlets are pulling the promotional ads.”

“The Hunt” stars Betty Gilpin and Hillary Swank, who play characters who represent “opposite sides of the political divide,” according to Masters, who added that it was originally titled, “Red State vs. Blue State.”

“The Hunt” is scheduled to hit theatres in September but honchos are reportedly reconsidering amid tragic mass shootings.
Political satirist Tim Young makes a living by poking fun at topical issues but thinks “The Hunt” goes over the line.

“Why would anyone think it’s a great idea to have a movie about hunting down someone who doesn’t agree with them politically? It’s remarkable to me that the left blames Donald Trump’s rhetoric for violence, then literally spends millions to normalize the killing of people based on politics,” Young told Fox News.

“We’re told over and over again by the left, especially in Hollywood, that this country is more divided than ever and we need to come together… is this what they mean by it? Come together to murder your neighbors that you don’t agree with? This film is sick and shows just how hateful the left has become,” Young added.

ESPN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At least two trailers for the film are online but it remains unclear if Blumhouse Productions will proceed with other planned advertisements.

“A high-level insider says top executives want to stand by Blum, one of the studio’s most prolific and successful producers, as well as filmmaker Craig Zobel, and see the project as a satire addressing an issue of great social importance. But this person says plans could change ‘if people think we’re being exploitative rather than opinionated,’” Masters wrote.

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Tuesday that “Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire.”

“This certainly shows Hollywood for what it really is — demented and evil. At a time when journalists try to blame President Trump for every act of violence in the world, wannabe Tinseltown terrorists are making sick murder fantasies about right-wingers,” Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News.

A trailer that was published by The Daily Mail reveals that the victims are from areas that typically vote Republican, while a hunter declares “We pay for everything, so this country belongs to us.”

“While some trailers for the film have been pulled, there’s an internal debate deliberating the film’s next steps,” Daily Mail’s Lauren Edmonds wrote. “But decisions will need to come fast, as there’s a promotional blitz planned in September.”

“The Hunt” is scheduled to be released on Sept. 27.

“The executives at Universal and those even willing to promote this or run ads for it should know better than to promote political violence,” Young said.

The intolerant arrogance of Liberal Hollywood knows no bounds.

The Hollywood “Elite” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue in public to show their hindquarters, while throwing the longest temper tantrum that the world has ever seen over the results of an American Presidential Election, that happened almost three years ago.

These self-proclaimed activists, are once again making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

This arrogance which I have referred to, allows them to actually produce a demeaning, horrible piece of garbage like “The Hunt” and blow off the evil demented storyline of it as “satire”.

Yeah, right.

That is as disingenuous as when Facebook Trolls posting Andy Borowitz’s “satirical” articles from The New Yorker as “real news”.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run the Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple just can not accept the fact that the overwhelming majority of Americans living between the coasts, the ones responsible for the election of President Trump are sick and tired of their overbearing arrogance, anti-Americanism, and Liberal Intolerance which they attempt to force upon average Americans as “art” while attempting to lecture average Americans as to why America and the President are positively gauche and awful.

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum over Trump’s Presidency and political correctness is doing, is making them look like fools and to remind us of how disconnected their beliefs are from average Americans.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

And, I certainly do not remember them being appointed as the arbiters of what is “Hate Speech” and what words are allowed to be communicated freely among Americans.

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct themselves and  comport themselves like those Hollywood Legends before them, who served their country during World War II, doing whatever they could to help America defeat fascism.

Now, these pampered ,self-righteous, oblivious Lightweights are all proponents of the “New Fascism” being practiced by the Modern Democratic (Socialist) Party.

And, they see no problem with insulting and being condescending to the average Americans who “pay their salaries” by watching the garbage being produced out of Hollywood.

As we say down here in the part of America’s Heartland, known as Dixie…

It just don’t make no sense.

Dem Debate 2, Round 2: Biden Vs. Booker Criminal Justice Boogaloo

August 1, 2019

30live-democratic-debate-promo2-videoSixteenByNineJumbo1600

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and former Vice President Joe Biden had a fiery exchange over their records on criminal justice, with the senator accusing the 2020 frontrunner of “dipping into the Kool-Aid.”

During Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, Biden defended his criminal justice reform plan, which Booker had previously called “inadequate.” But the New Jersey senator took things a step further as well, going after the former vice president for his heavy involvement in the 1994 Crime Bill.

“This is one of those instances where the house was set on fire and you claimed responsibility for those laws,” Booker said. “You can’t just now come out with a plan to put out that fire.”

Biden quickly went after Booker’s record as Newark mayor where he “hired Rudy Giuliani’s guy” and “engaged in stop and frisk.”

“You had 75 percent of those stops reviewed as illegal, you found yourself in the situation where three times as many African Americans were caught in that chain and caught up,” Biden hit back, continuing: “the Justice Department came after you  for saying you were engaging in behavior that was inappropriate and nothing happened the entire time you were mayor.”

Booker acknowledged that he “inherited a police department with massive problems,” but quickly returned fire at the former Delaware senator.

“We have a system right now that’s broken and If you want to compare records and I’m shocked that you do, I am happy to do that,” Booker shot back. “Because all the problems that he is talking about that he created, I actually led the bill that got passed into law that reverses the damages that your bills…. that you were bragging calling it the ‘Biden Crime Bill’ up until 2015.”

Biden reiterated his attacks about Booker’s enforcement of “stop and frisk”

“Mr. Vice President, there’s a saying in my community: ‘You’re dipping into the Kool-Aid and you don’t even know the flavor,” Booker shot back, sparking applause.

Booker continued, “You need to come to the city and see the reforms we put in place. The head of the ACLU said that I embraced reform not just in action but in deeds. You are trying to shift the view from what you created. There are people right now in prison for life, for drug offenses because you stood up and used that tough on crime phony rhetoric that got a lot of people elected but destroyed communities like mind. This isn’t about the past. This is about the present, right now.”

Democrats have always had a terrible record in regards to enacting “Criminal Justice Reforms”.

Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…

…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.

Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.

The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)

The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”

Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.

Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.

Uh huh.

The problem for the Democrat Candidates who choose to go after Biden on issues like his Crime Bill, is that most, if not all of them, live in glass houses.

Like Cory Booker, for example.

TheDailyBeast.com reported back in April of 2017 that

Months after he first entered the Senate, the New Jersey comptroller alleged that under Booker’s watch—or, more likely, because he was not watching—corruption ran rampant at a publicly funded water-treatment and reservoir-management agency, where Booker’s former law partner served as counsel. And speaking of his former law career: Despite having resigned from his law firm once entering the mayor’s office, Booker received annual payments until 2011, during which time the firm was profiting handsomely off of Brick City. That would be the Brick City that Booker professed to love with the fire of a thousand suns, but did little to fundamentally change. Murder, violent crime, unemployment, and taxes all rose dramatically under his stewardship.

The Far Left Democrats runing for their party’s Presidential Candidate Nomination all talk a good game when they talk about both “Social” and “Criminal” Justice.

The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.

They not only expect it, they rely on it.

However, the problem is the fact that Trump has made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters.

He is even considering shortening sentences of some non-violent drug offenders.

And, Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.

The big problem that the “unintended consequences” of Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill and the other Democrats’ records against crime in their constituencies poses for them is the fact that it shows their hypocrisy.

Just like Biden performing his imitation of a matador and waved the 1994 Crime Bill  on through, allowing “Bubba” to sign it into law, the other Democratic Candidates wave and shake hands with their constituents and then go home to their gated mansions in exclusive communities.

I thought the Democrats were supposed to be the “Party of the Common Man”.

Sheesh.

With “friends” like the Democrats, Black Americans don’t need any enemies.

Netflix and Disney Threaten to Pull Productions Out of Georgia Over “Heartbeat” Abortion Law

May 31, 2019

“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” – Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

Entertainment giants Netflix and Disney are threatening to pull their business out of Georgia over the state’s recently-enacted “heartbeat” abortion bill but maintains unwavering partnerships with countries like Egypt, where abortions are illegal, and China, where Muslims are being held in internment camps.

Earlier this week, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos issued a statement on the growing movement in Hollywood to boycott Georgia over the new pro-life legislation which prohibits abortions if a baby’s heartbeat is detected, which is roughly six weeks into the pregnancy.

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Sarandos said. “Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there, while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

As The Daily Caller reports, Netflix has had multiple productions made in Egypt, where abortions are completely outlawed except when the mother’s life is at risk and in the case of fetal abnormalities. They have also had shows made in Jordan, where abortion laws are “very restrictive.”

Disney is also weighing its options.

“I think if the bill becomes law, it will be very difficult to produce or I’ll doubt we will,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said. “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard.”

While Disney is considering boycotting Georgia, The Daily Caller reports the studio maintains a healthy relationship with China, where they recently opened a $5.5 billion resort in Shanghai. China has come under international criticism for its operation of internment camps in remote areas of the country where millions of Turkic Muslims are imprisoned.

The fact that Netflix is nothing but a bunch of Liberal Hypocrites, I can understand.

After all, they have put the Obamas and their cronies on their production staff.

However, I wonder what Walt Disney would think about this?

Mr. Disney’s legacy was built upon family entertainment. From Mickey Mouse to Davy Crockett to “Flubber”, when films had the Disney name attached to them, you knew that it was going to be clean, wholesome entertainment.

Now though, the Disney Empire is run by Liberals, who have no problem interjecting their political viewpoint into their product as witnessed by the television programming currently found on ABC and ESPN.

Conservative programming is nonexistent.

Especially since they took Tim Allen’s popular sitcom “Last Man Standing” off the air because it was a Conservative program.

But, I digress…

While I am disgusted by the Liberal Hypocrisy being shown by both companies, I am definitely not surprised.

The opinions of those Americans who are Pro-Life, and who are usually Christians, do not seem to be valued by those in the Entertainment Industry, like Netflix and Disney.

This comes from their shared misconception that Christian Americans will not fight back against them and the things they want to say and do in our society.

If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we experienced during the Obama administration, and now, after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.

For a shining example, please refer to how well Christian Family Movies like the “God is Not Dead” Series and the one which Sean Hannity produced have done.

It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean, divisive, and intolerant.

Which in itself, is ironic, considering the way they treat the faith of 75% of Americans.

The belief in their own superior intelligence has cost the Entertainment Industry dearly in the last several years.

However, you can’t tell them that it is their Liberal beliefs that are alienating them from average Americans.

Isn’t it “funny” how those who claim to be the “most tolerant” among us are actually the least tolerant of all?

And, isn’t ironic that Disney, a company which proclaims that “It’s a Small World After All” won’t stand up for the smallest and most defenseless of all of us?

House Dems to Vote Friday on Ethics and Campaign Finance Reform Bill…First the Hypocrisy, Then the Veto

March 6, 2019

pelosi-show-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

House Democrats are preparing to vote Friday on a sweeping ethics and campaign finance reform package known as the For the People Act, and in response the White House issued its second veto threat of the year on Tuesday, calling the proposal a reckless move that would increase opportunities for rampant voter fraud and chill free speech.

The bill, known as H.R. 1, purportedly aims to eliminate “culture of corruption in Washington” and to reduce the role of money in politics. It would make it easier for citizens to register and vote, tighten election security, and establish a small-donor public matching system in congressional elections.

In a direct shot at Trump, the bill would require presidents to release at least 10 years’ worth of tax returns. The bill also would ban executive-branch officials from lobbying their old agency for two years after they leave government, and reauthorize and enhance the Office of Government Ethics, which has clashed with Trump.

Additionally, the Act would require groups like the Chamber of Commerce that spend more than $10,000 on political messaging to disclose the identity of their contributors who gave more than $10,000 — prompting several business groups to raise concerns about their ability to communicate with politicians.

“The $10,000 donor threshold appears designed to target business organizations while largely sparing labor organizations from disclosure of their funding sources, which are typically union dues that are far less than $10,000,”  Neil Bradley, the executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce business lobbying group, told reporters on Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has long pronounced the reform measure dead on arrival in the Senate, where it faces long odds. And the White House, which has already vowed to veto the ongoing effort by Congress to strike down his national emergency declaration over border wall funding, issued a statement Tuesday outlining the administration’s problems with the legislation.

“If H.R. 1 were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend he veto the bill,” the statement flatly concluded. Trump has not yet vetoed any legislation.

One of the measure’s most notable provisions would restore protections included in the 1965 Voting Rights Act and guard against efforts by state officials to purge voting rolls.

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a veteran of the civil rights movement, called voting “the most powerful, non-violent instrument of transformation we have in our democracy,” and said efforts to make it easier to vote — not harder — were crucial. “I truly believe deep in my heart that the way votes were not counted and purged in Georgia and Florida and other states changed the outcome of the last election” to harm Democrats, Lewis said. “That must never happen again.”

However, the White House said it saw that provision as an invitation to voter fraud.

“H.R. 1 would prohibit commonsense efforts to clean up voting-rolls to limit opportunities for voting fraud,” the White House said. “The bill would also require States to adopt online registration, same-day registration, and automatic voter registration, thus imposing a one-size-fits-all standard for weighing the competing values of voter access and voting integrity.”

The White House statement continued: “Furthermore, H.R. 1 would enhance the powers of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman and reduce the number of FEC members from six to five, thus increasing the chances that the FEC becomes a partisan entity with undue power to shape and regulate elections nationwide.”

Other objections raised by the Trump administration centered on the bill’s advance of political redistricting mandates, as well as its possible effects on First Amendment rights.

…”The legislation would force States to create unelected bodies and then delegate redistricting decisions to them,” the White House’s statement said in response. “This would suppress the voices of our Nation’s citizens and cut off a nationwide debate on how best to pursue fair and ethical redistricting processes throughout the country.”

…”H.R. 1 also chills free speech by creating requirements that would limit the ability of Americans to participate in advocacy without undue compliance costs and without fear of public reprisals,” the White House countered. “The bill would establish costly and unnecessary programs to finance political campaigns, and force American taxpayers to finance Federal candidates they may not support.”

But Maryland Democratic Rep. John Sarbanes said Democrats were “responding directly to the American people and what they want to see in our democracy,” as shown by the election results in the 2018 midterms.

Calling the bill “transformative,” Sarbanes said in January it will “strengthen our democracy and return political power to the people by making it easier, not harder, to vote, ending the dominance of big money in our politics and ensuring that public officials actually serve the public.”

“You could stamp on this thing ‘McConnell-rejected,’ and it would immediately give it more credibility,” Sarbanes said. The legislation was not built for McConnell or any lawmaker, Sarbanes added: “This was built for the public.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also touted the bill, saying it would “restore integrity to government, so that people can have confidence that government works for the public interest, not the special interests.”

On ethics, members of Congress would be barred from serving on corporate boards and could not use taxpayer dollars to settle employment discrimination cases. But the White House argued that those provisions would unnecessarily impede the work of the executive branch with burdensome regulations.

Sarbanes and other supporters said the election security measures are particularly important as the 2020 election nears.

Predicting “historic turnout” in upcoming elections, Sarbanes said officials must not only encourage increased participation, but guard against attempts at sabotage from foreign and domestic adversaries.

“If we’re not ready for that in all the ways [the legislation] seeks to ensure, then we could end up with a train wreck,” he said.

Having the House Democrats sponsor a “Financial Reform” and “Ethics” bill is like having Stormy McDaniel write a book endorsing chastity.

Nancy Pelosi and her husband are worth $22 million, thanks to “shrewd real estate investments in California.

Gee. I wonder where they received their “tips” from?

Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Saikat Chakrabarti, her chief of staff are presently being accused of violating campaign finance laws to the tune of almost $1,000,000.

Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are spending their time in office attacking the faith of 75% of Americans who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior.

Meanwhile, Pelosi and her convocation of “Pharisees” are apparently going to spend the next two years wasting American Taxpayers’ money trying to get the man who average Americans voted into office…out of office.

Also, if they are truly interested in “Ethical Behavior and Finance Reform” are they going to retroactively take away the money which Hillary Clinton and her husband’s Foundation made from all of those foreign governments who pay them money to curry favor with the then–Secretary of State?

I am always writing about how the Liberals in the Far Left Democratic Party believe themselves to be the smartest people in the room and above all the rest of us Americans.

However, the House Democrats have completely lost it.

This bill has the all of the sincerity of a book titled “The Michael Moore Diet Plan”.

If the House Dems do not wake up and smell what they are shoveling, like Captain Ahab in “Moby Dick”, the Great While Whale that they are obsessed with,President Donald J. Trump, is going to drag their hopes of regaining presidency down into a watery grave for several decades.

And, considering their present Marxist Political Ideology and severely impaired mental faculties, that would be a very good thing.

Why a “Roseanne-less” Reboot Would Bomb Bigger Than Hiroshima

June 2, 2018

barred-600-li

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views. – William F. Buckley, Jr.

According to Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com,

There is some cautious optimism that Roseanne, cancelled by ABC on Monday, could continue without co-creator and star Roseanne Barr. I hear the show’s producers will be meeting with Disney-ABC executives on Monday to pitch a revamped Roseanne without the title star (and likely the original title too). 

Details about the concept that will be pitched are unclear but the show is expected to stay true to the praised first season of the revival — the series’ 11th overall — featuring the other cast members except Barr. There could be stronger emphasis on Sara Gilbert’s character Darlene, which can be expected since the revival was centered mainly on three characters, Roseanne (Barr), Dan (John Goodman) and their daughter Darlene (Gilbert) who moved back home with her kids.

As we previously reported, executive producers Tom Werner, who also executive produced the original series, and Gilbert, the main driving force behind the revival, are believed to be spearheading the efforts to continue the show and keep the writers, led by executive producer/showrunner Bruce Helford, and crew employed post-cancellation.

While prospects for a Roseanne 2.0 look a little brighter today than they did immediately after the show’s sudden cancellation. Still, sources close to the situation caution that there are major hurdles to overcome. While independent production company Carsey-Werner owns and produces Roseanne, there are legal and rights issues that need to be settled as Barr was co-creator and executive producer on the series and has ownership/backend. Warner Bros. TV’s decision to fire Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen and continue the show without him resulted in him filing a $100 million lawsuit against the studio, eventually settled for $25 million that WBTV paid him to cover his backend.

Barr already attacked two of her Roseanne cast members, Michael Fishman and Gilbert, who had condemned her Valerie Jarrett tweets before announcing that she forgives them. She also has indicated in her relentless tweeting over the past few days that she is ready to fight back. It is unclear whether that would involve litigation but she may mount a legal challenge should a Roseanne spinoff without her goes forward.

I am sure that Sara Gilbert wishes to move forward. This would be the starring vehicle that, I am certain in her mind, could propel her to stardom, as it did Roseanne.

There’s just one problem: Americans are already familiar with Ms. Gilbert from her role as a co-creator, producer, and panelist on the Afternoon female gabfest “The Talk” on CBS and a recurring role on “The Big Bang Theory”. She is also a “married” lesbian, political activist, and environmentalist, who has written a book titled “The Imperfect Environmentalist: A Practical Guide to Clearing Your Body, Detoxing Your Home and Saving The Earth (Without Losing Your Mind)”.

The problem is…she is not ROSEANNE.

While I am certain that the Liberal Echo Chamber in the Halls of Power at Disney/ABC/ESPN sees that as a plus, average Americans here in America’s Heartland will not.

For all her faults, missteps, and loudmouth obnoxious behavior, average Americans had come to embrace the revival of her television show after 20 years because they felt that it painted a realistic picture of a family attempting to cope and navigate their way through the tough issues of today.

It also helped that Roseanne and her producer were both Trump Supporters.

Even Roseanne admits that what she tweeted was harsh and she apologized for it.

However, as has been pointed out in the last few days, the behavior of Liberal Television celebrities and Talking Heads towards the 45th President of the United States of America and average Americans who voted for him and who support him to the day has been so over the top that it makes Roseanne’s tweet about Valerie Jarrett pale in comparison.

And that, gentle readers, is the main reason why a Roseanne-less Reboot would fail.

The majority of Americans will not want any part of it because of ABC’s perceived Liberal Agenda to oust Roseanne and the Liberal hypocrisy toward their own insults and vulgarities toward the President, his family, and his supporters, which the American Public has witnessed en masse nightly on their TV screens since before the 2016 Presidential Election.

If ABC is so insulated that they believe that a politically correct version of “Roseanne” featuring her television daughter would be a success, then they really have no clue.

However, Self-Absorbed Liberals that they are, they will try it, it will fail, and they will place the blame on the “limited intellect” and “closed-mindedness” of Trump Supporters.

It’s just what they do.

For reference, please watch videos of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN reporting the events of the evening of November 8, 2016.

Roseanne is Fired, Yet “The View” Remains…Liberal Hypocrisy Abounds

May 30, 2018

BeFunky-collage-28-2

Unless you have been living under a rock, like the guys in the old Geico Commercial, you probably know by now what happened to Roseanne Barr yesterday.

If you don’t know, here is the big news, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday. 

ABC, in a stunning move, has decided to cancel its Roseanne revival following star Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet Tuesday. 

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday.
 
Early Tuesday, star, head writer and executive producer Barr attacked Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, in a since-deleted tweet in which she said “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” Barr subsequently apologized: “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste.”

Every American who has paid any attention at all to the goings-on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, knows who Valerie Jarrett is.

She was the Obamas’ aide-de-camp, friend and confidante during Barack Hussein Obama’s Presidential Tenure and she remains so to this day, having moved into their Washington home to help him run his “Shadow Government” just scant blocks from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Valerie Jarrett was born in November 1956 to American parents in Shiraz, Iran, where her well-known physician father ran a children’s hospital. When Valerie was five, her family moved to London for one year before arriving in Chicago’s elite Hyde Park neighborhood in 1963.

Jarrett’s maternal grandfather was a Chicago Communist named Robert Taylor, who was involved in the 1940s with the Communist Organizations, the American Peace Mobilization and the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee.  Also a member of these groups was Frank Marshall Davis.

Frank Marshall Davis (1905 – 1987) was an author, liberal activist, Stalinist agent, and self-admitted pedophile (Would you let your children hang around him?) . Davis was involved in Chicago’s South Side Community Art Center, “a meeting place for young African-American writers and artists during the 1940s”. Coming out of the New Deal Federal Art Project, the Art Center was a hangout for the “Culture Group,” a circle of Communist Party members and sympathizers including Richard Wright, Margaret Burroughs, Marion Perkins and Arna Bontemps.

Jarrett’s mother (Robert Taylor’s daughter) is early childhood education author Barbara Taylor Bowman. She was a co-founder of a Chicago-based graduate school in child development known as the Erikson Institute, named after the psychoanalyst Erik Erikson. Back in 1950, Erikson became a hero to the Radical Left when he resigned from professorship at the University of California, rather than submit to sign an anti-communist loyalty oath as the school required.

Additional evidence of the Erikson Institute’s Radical Left political orientation is the make-up of  its board of trustees, which has included, along with Bowman, Tom Ayers (father of Marxist Bomber Bill Ayers (the man Obama called “just a guy in the neighborhood”) and Bill Ayer’s wife, Bernardino Dohrn. Bill Ayers referred to Bowman as “a neighbor and friend” in his 1997 book “A Kind and Just Parent”, in which he wrote that his neighbors also included Louis Farrakhan and “writer Barack Obama”.

Jarrett received a B.A. in psychology from Stanford University in 1978, and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Michigan Law School in 1981. In 1983, she married Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of the Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett was a pioneering black journalist who in the 1940s wrote columns for the communist-influenced Chicago Defender extolling Communist poet Langston Hughes and lifelong Stalinists W.E.B. DuBois and Paul Robeson. Also in the 1940s, Mr. Jarrett was a leader of the Chicago chapter of American Youth for Democracy—youth wing of the Communist Party USA.

Just an All-American Girl, huh?

As several Conservative Pundits correctly observed yesterday, ABC was chomping at the bit for an excuse to cancel Roseanne Barr’s hit comedy.

A series returning to television after a 20 year hiatus about a working class family living in a town in the Heartland of America, whose outspoken matriarch was an adamant Trump Supporter, kicked major behind in the ratings.

Who’d da thunk it?

Certainly not the Liberal Expert Television Programmers and Critics in Hollywood and New York.

You know them. They are the same geniuses who came up with the idea for the Rosie O’Donnell variety show, “Rosie Live”…that mercifully lasted for only one episode.

The same Liberals who were in shock over the ratings success of the return of “Roseanne” were the same ones who had been crying since November 8, 2016 because they did not get their way.

This continuing epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

And, when it did not happen, they lost their collective Hive-Mind.

As Liberal Democrats always do, by cancelling of “Roseanne” and purging the show’s reruns owned by Viacom from TV Land, Paramount, and CMT, they grossly underestimate the intelligence of Americans living in the Heartland and overestimate their own East and Left Coast Metropolitan hipness and savior faire.

American Liberals only make up 24% of America’s population.

The majority of America’s population, especially those of us living between the coasts, could care less about the Liberal “god” known as “Political Correctness”.

Americans want to entertained when we turn on our televisions, not didactically lectured to through shows designed to amplify the effect that the Liberal Political Philosophy of relative morality and situational ethics which goes by the alias of “Political Correctness” has on our daily lives.

There is a reason that John Wayne remains the #4 most popular Movie Star in America all these years after his passing.

As profoundly demonstrated on November 8, 2016, average American still believe in the things that made our country great.

The Disney Empire will pay for their hypocrisy in firing Roseanne while keeping the Harpies on “The View” and all of their other employees on ABC and ESPN who continuously attack President Trump and anyone, including average Americans, who support him.

In fact, it has started already. Disney stock fell 2.5 points yesterday as a result of Disney’s hasty actions.

The irony of Disney’s display of hypocrisy is that if this “standing up for what you believe in”, in the name of  “political correctness”, emanating from the mouths of “the enlightened”, was coming from the mouths of Christian Business Owners, it would be labeled as “hateful bigotry”…wouldn’t it?

Pelosi Defends Conyers. Still Calls for Moore to Exit Race. Irony is Embarrassed.

November 27, 2017

Nancy-Pelosi-with-John-Conyers-940x460

Man is the Only Animal that Blushes. Or needs to. Mark Twain, “Following the Equator”, 1897

NBCNews.com reports that

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., stepped down as the ranking Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee on Sunday, following sexual harassment accusations. The 27-term congressman said he denied the allegations, but was stepping down because of the ongoing House Ethics Committee investigation.

“I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics,” Conyers said in a statement.

“To be clear, I would like very much to remain as Ranking Member,” he added. “There is still much work to be done on core concerns like securing civil rights, enacting meaningful criminal justice reform, and protecting access to the ballot box.”

Appearing on “Meet The Press” earlier in the day, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi urged “due process” before making conclusions about Rep. Conyers, saying the congressman is “an icon” who has worked to protect women.

“We are strengthened by due process. Just because someone is accused — and was it one accusation? Is it two?” Pelosi asked.

“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left — right-wing — is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added. “But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows, which I don’t, I believe he will do the right thing.”

Conyers’ office recently confirmed issuing a settlement of $27,000 to a former staffer who says she was fired for resisting the congressman’s sexual advances. Conyers has acknowledged the payout, which he said amounted to a severance package, but he denied the allegations about what it was for.

The payout from Conyers’ office first became public in a report published by Buzzfeed on Monday, and came after a number of men in powerful positions in politics, entertainment and media have faced public accusations of sexual harassment. The accusations have opened up a national conversation about how women are treated in the workplace by men in positions of power.

When asked specifically whether she believes the accusations against Conyers, Pelosi said: “I do not know who they are. Do you? They have not really come forward.”

She repeatedly said that she wants to see the House Ethics Committee investigation of Conyers play out.

Conyers has held the powerful position on Capitol Hill as the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee for a decade, but after Pelosi’s interview on Sunday, he announced that he would step down from the position while the Ethics Committee investigates.

Pelosi said in a statement later Sunday, “Zero tolerance means consequences. I have asked for an ethics investigation, and as that investigation continues, Congressman Conyers has agreed to step aside as Ranking Member.”

On “Meet The Press,” Pelosi was also asked whether she would accept an apology from Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, who has apologized after being accused of unwanted touching from multiple women, if no other accusers surfaced. “His accusers have to accept an apology,” Pelosi said. “The victims have some say in all of this, as well. And that has happened in the past. People have accepted an apology, as is coming forth now that I see in the press.”

The reporting process on Capitol Hill for sexual harassment claims is a very long and arduous process that can take months to play out, but Pelosi said the House is expected to soon take up new action aimed at preventing such conduct when they vote this week on a resolution that would require all lawmakers and their staff members to go through anti-harassment training. The Senate passed a similar measure earlier this month.

Pelosi’s comments Sunday also came while Democrats and many Republican leaders have called for Alabama’s GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to exit the race, since Moore is facing sexual misconduct accusations from nine women, including one who says he molested her when she was 14 and he was 32. Moore has denied all of the allegations.

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman is one of the Republican lawmakers who has called for Moore to step aside, and on Sunday said that if he were a voter in Alabama, he’d “probably vote for a Republican, but it wouldn‘t be Roy Moore.”

“As the women went on the record, I thought there was a lot of credibility in what they were saying,” Portman said on “Meet The Press.” “I didn’t find the response very credible and that’s how I came up with my position.”

As the national conversation on sexual harassment has accelerated, the reaction to numerous allegations from the 1990s has also been revisited.

Anita Hill accused U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment when she worked for him at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and later testified about it during his 1991 Senate confirmation hearing. Thomas denied the allegations.

Now a professor at Brandeis University, Hill said on “Meet The Press” that “unfortunately, 26 years ago, Washington wasn’t ready to lead on this issue, and I’m afraid even today Washington cannot lead the country on this issue. There seems to be so many conflicted feelings and understandings about what needs to happen when sexual misconduct occurs.”

Pelosi, meanwhile, also said the reaction to sexual misconduct accusations against former President Bill Clinton from that era versus today represent “obviously a generational change.”

“The concern that we had then was that they were impeaching the president of the United States, and for something that had nothing to do with the performance of his duties, and trying to take him out for that reason,” Pelosi added. “But let’s go forward. Let’s go forward. I think that something wonderful is happening now, very credible. It’s 100 years, almost 100 years, since women got the right to vote. Here we are, almost 100 years later, and something very transformative is happening.”

One lies and the other swears to it.

If anyone still has any questions as to how Billionaire Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump got elected President of the United States, here’s the answer.

The duplicitous dealings, perversions, peccadilloes, self-entitlement, and downright lying of the Political Elite…on BOTH sides of the Congressional Aisle.

In the case of the recent explosive revealing of sexual harassment and abuse by Congressmen, they have all turned out to be Democrats.

The same Democrats who have been looking down their noses at us average Americans for decades, calling us “Bitter Clingers” in front of their Big Money Donors, while chases their Congressional Pages, Interns, and Office Staff around in their BVDs,

“Icon”, my hindquarters.

The word “delusional” does not even begin to cover San Fran Nan’s illogical statement.

Nancy Pelosi’s station in life defies logic.

That has to be the most tone-deaf statement made about a Philandering Congressman since Wilber Mills (D-AR), was caught fooling around with Fanne Fox, a local DC Stripper, who, when caught drunken driving with Mills, attempted to jump attempted to jump in the Tidal Basin to elude police.

For her to completely ignore the current Democratic Congressional Sexual Abuse Scandal, as pertains Conyers detailed decades of systematic abuse,does not just “strain” credulity…it stomps that sucker flat.

There are two possibilities for Pelosi’s misjudgment of the American People:

She has been so sheltered from us “rabble” during all of those years up on Capitol Hill, that she simply is clueless to the daily lives of average Americans and how we feel on the issues of the day. Or…

She is a victim of galloping dementia.

It is probably both.

For years, the hypocrisy of sanctimonious Liberals, who considered themselves to be the “Smartest People in the Room” made them the Darlings of the Hoi Polloi, the “Captains of the Country Club Crowd” and go-to sources for the Main Stream Media, who hung of their every didactic word as they told average Americans how they should live, how they should raise their children, and how they should allow them to complete run their lives from cradle to grave.

And now, it turns out that all those years that they considered themselves to be of “Royal Blood”, their personal lives had all of the class and morality of the old Redd Foxx “Party” Albums that teenagers used to “borrow” from their parents to listen to and giggle.

It is imperative that average Americans finish what they started on November 8m 2016 in the Presidential Election when the Midterm Elections arrive in 2018.

We must DRAIN THE DC SWAMP.

The stench of Swamp Gas being produced by the Congresscritters who have over-stayed their welcome is overwhelming,

The Ultimate “Deflection”: From The Clinton Foundation and Obama Administration Wiretapping to “Trump-Russia”.

April 1, 2017

Open-Season-NRD-600

Hanging out on Facebook Political Pages, one witnesses a unique phenomenon known as “deflection”.

Mostly used by Liberals and Internet Trolls (but, I repeat myself), it is a simple and ineffective strategy consisting of changing the subject when you have no logical counterpoint in a “discussion”.

It occurs in “real life” all the time. Especially in politics…

Foxnews.com reported yesterday that

The U.S. intelligence official who “unmasked,” or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone “very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world,” a source told Fox News on Friday. 

Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of classified names told Fox News that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., now knows who is responsible — and that person is not in the FBI.

For a private citizen to be “unmasked,” or named, in an intelligence report is extremely rare. Typically, the American is a suspect in a crime, is in danger or has to be named to explain the context of the report.

“The main issue in this case, is not only the unmasking of these names of private citizens, but the spreading of these names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security or an investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election,” a congressional source close to the investigation told Fox News. 

The unmasking of Americans whose communications apparently were caught up in surveillance under the Obama administration is a key part of an investigation being led by Nunes, who has come under fire from Democrats for focusing on that aspect. 

Nunes has known about the unmasking controversy since January, when two sources in the intelligence community approached him. The sources told Nunes who was responsible and at least one of the Trump team names that was unmasked. They also gave him serial numbers of reports that documented the activity.

This was long before Trump sent out his now-infamous March 4 tweets claiming then-President Barack Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the 2016 election.

Nunes had asked intelligence agencies to see the reports in question, but was stonewalled.

He eventually was able to view them, but there was only one safe place to see the documents without compromising the sources’ identities — the old executive office building on White House grounds, which has a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) required to view classified or top secret reports. The White House did not tell Nunes about the existence of the intelligence reports, but did help him gain access to the documents at his request, the source said.

The White House, meanwhile, is urging Nunes and his colleagues to keep pursuing what improper surveillance and leaks may have occurred before Trump took office. They’ve been emboldened in the wake of March 2 comments from former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas, who on MSNBC suggested her former colleagues tried to gather material on Trump team contacts with Russia.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Friday her comments and other reports raise “serious” concerns about whether there was an “organized and widespread effort by the Obama administration to use and leak highly sensitive intelligence information for political purposes.”

“Dr. Farkas’ admissions alone are devastating,” he said.

Farkas parted ways with the White House in 2015 and defended herself on Twitter, saying she didn’t personally “give anybody anything except advice” on Russia information and wanted Congress to ask for facts. 

The communications collected from Trump team associates apparently were picked up during surveillance of foreign targets. But an intelligence source familiar with those targets said they were spied on long before Trump became the GOP presidential nominee in mid-July.

In addition, citizens affiliated with Trump’s team who were unmasked were not associated with any intelligence about Russia or other foreign intelligence, sources confirmed. The initial unmasking led to other surveillance, which led to other private citizens being wrongly unmasked, sources said.

“Unmasking is not unprecedented, but unmasking for political purposes … specifically of Trump transition team members … is highly suspect and questionable,” an intelligence source told Fox News. “Opposition by some in the intelligence agencies who were very connected to the Obama and Clinton teams was strong. After Trump was elected, they decided they were going to ruin his presidency by picking them off one by one.”

Nunes first revealed on March 22 in a press conference that the U.S. intelligence community “incidentally collected” information on Trump’s transition team, putting the information and names into various intelligence reports. His committee had been investigating whether Russia interfered in the U.S. election as well as how names of private citizens from these reports were leaked. 

House Intelligence Ranking Member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., criticized Nunes for his handling of the investigation, claiming he should never have briefed Trump. Nunes apologized the following day, but said he briefed the president because the information he found was not related to Russia.

The minority members on the House Intelligence Committee were expected to visit a National Security Agency facility on Friday to view the same reports Nunes has seen, an intelligence source told Fox News.

Meanwhile, the Democrats and their minions in the Main Stream Media are deflecting from this story by continuing the baseless accusations that members of the Trump Administration, including Trump himself, “colluded” with the Russians.

The problem is…they still have no evidence for their claims, whatsoever. It remains a WITCH HUNT designed to hamstring Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promises, driven by the impossible dream that they might succeed in driving him out of office.

However, boys and girls, the Dems keep forgetting that when you toss a rock from the front doorway of a glass house, you had better be ready for the catapulted boulder that will be coming back at you.

And, a glass house cannot deflect a boulder.

Four months ago, Breitbart.com, ran the following story…

President-elect Donald Trump’s administration will encourage foreign governments to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s finances, according to a source close to the transition team.

The new administration will pressure its new ambassadors to urge governments in Haiti and Colombia to investigate the foundation’s financial dealings, the New York Post reported.

Trump said he will not investigate or pursue charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server or role in the Clinton Foundation while at the State Department. But Trump’s statement did not say anything about encouraging foreign governments to look into the foundation’s work in various countries.

“Haiti and Colombia will be key diplomatic posts for this ­because of all the money ­involved,” said the source.

Senior foundation officials coordinated with the State Department to give “Friends of Bill” Clinton preferential treatment during earthquake recovery efforts in Haiti in 2010, according to emails obtained by the Republican National Committee through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.

Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s work in Colombia, where he used the land he acquired in the country to set up an oil business, according to the Post.

The foundation has received millions of dollars from foreign governments such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Ireland.

But donations to the foundation have dropped by 37 percent to $108 million last year after allegations that Hillary Clinton used the charity to solicit million-dollar donations from foreign governments and corporations in exchange for favorable treatment from the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State.

Hillary Clinton left the Clinton Foundation in April 2015 to run for president. After the election loss to Trump, it is unclear whether or not she will resume her duties on the board of directors with Bill and Chelsea Clinton.

The price of “paying tribute” in order to gain an audience with someone in power goes all the way back to Biblical Times, continuing to the American and French Revolutions.

Our government was never meant to be a Monarchy. America remains a Constitutional Republic.

American Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity, amassing unlimited wealth by accepting “tribute” from those seeking “favors”.

What Hillary Clinton tried to get away with is a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.

Obama, the Department of Justice, and the Clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the campaign Trail, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.

Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

Donald J. Trump is a prime example of this.

What Obama, Clinton, Schumer, and all of the Liberals out there still crying in their Pepsi Product of choice over watching the machinations of a Constitutional Republic in action do not want to admit, is that the Electoral Collage was put in place to prevent what they are still trying to accomplish by any means necessary: overthrowing an election in which Americans who living in the Heartland of our nation defeated a Presidential Candidate running on the favored Political Ideology of isolated Metropolitan Areas with dense populations.

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.

All these displaced tyrants are accomplishing with their unsubstantiated claims against President Trump, their outlandish political machinations, and their overwhelming hypocrisy is to make average Americans, who rejected their political ideology en masse on November 8th, even madder at them, if that is possible.

The lesson which they should have learned through their defeat on November 8th is that you can not buy average Americans voters nor our respect.

They are not for sale.

It is time for the Leaders and MSM Minions of the Democratic Party to suck it up and move on.

Americans have had enough of their National Temper Tantrum and boundless hypocrisy.

Liberal Hypocrisy: While Liberal “Entertainers” Try to Dictate What is “Morally Right” in NC, Muslims Prepare to Build an Islamic Museum on Ground Zero In NYC

May 21, 2016

th (70)Today’s Modern American Liberals, from President Barack Hussein Obama to the all-too-common Internet Troll, are continuing to fiddle around with “Gender Identity Rights”, while our nation, like Ancient Rome, burns.

CNSNews.com reports that

The pop group Maroon 5 on Friday joined the list of entertainers canceling appearances in North Carolina because of its law that denies anti-discrimination protections and dictates which restrooms transgender people can use.”This was a difficult decision for us to make as a band. We don’t want to penalize our fans in North Carolina by not performing for them, but in the end it comes down to what we feel is morally right,” the group said on its website.

The band led by Adam Levine, who doubles as a celebrity musician-coach on NBC’s “The Voice,” won’t appear Sept. 11 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte or Sept. 12 at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

A spokesman for Republican Gov. Pat McCrory in his race against Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, who opposes the law, responded by email. Spokesman Ricky Diaz said hundreds of performances, including one by Beyonce, have taken place in North Carolina since the law passed in March. Maroon 5 is only hurting its fans by “hypocritically targeting North Carolina for selective outrage,” noting that the group has not canceled a concert in Russia.

Beyonce did perform at N.C. State University in Raleigh, but only after she promoted the efforts of those trying to get the law reversed. She posted an image of herself wearing Equality NC’s “Y’all Means All” T-shirt and posted a statement supporting equality and encouraging donations to the group. “We think it is important for us to bring attention to those who are committed to being good and carrying on the message of equality in this core of controversy,” her statement read.

Other major performers pulling out of North Carolina include Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Pearl Jam, Itzhak Perlman and Ringo Starr. Other performers, including Cyndi Lauper and the comedian Louis C.K., said they would donate proceeds from their shows to groups fighting the law known as HB2. The NBA also could move the 2017 All-Star game out of Charlotte.

“Morally right?” Are you kidding me?

To paraphrase Val Kilmer, as Doc Holliday in the great movie “Tombstone”,

Liberal Hypocrisy knows no bounds.

While Modern American Liberals, the New Pharisees, piously attempt to tell average Americans that out Traditional American Morals and Values, based on the Christian Faith of our Founding Fathers is somehow bigoted and restrictive to those who back in the 1980s, were listed in Collegiate Sociology Books as “Sexual deviants”, they continue to embrace and champion a political ideology, masquerading as a faith, which actually does restrict and even murders Lesbians, Gays, Bi-sexuals, and Transgenders.

In the City That Never Sleeps, “so nice they said it twice”, the Liberals in charge there, including New York City’s Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio, are about to heap the ultimate insult on the over 3,000 Americans who were savagely murdered by Islamic Terrorists on September 11, 2001 and their family and friends who survive them.

The New York Post reports that

The developer of the failed Ground Zero Mosque has nailed down “Sharia-compliant financing” for a new, luxury condominium tower and Islamic cultural museum on the same site, he and his banking partners said Wednesday.

The $174 million dollar project features a three-story Islamic cultural museum at 51 Park Place and 48 high-end residential condos in a 43-story tower at 45 Park Place in the Financial District.

The “Sharia-compliant” financing means the deal complies with complex Islamic laws that govern lending and borrowing, including a prohibition against accepting interest or fees for loans.

Manhattan developer Sharif El-Gamal’s 2010 plan for a 15-story Islamic cultural center sparked protests from opponents who dubbed it the “Ground Zero Mosque,” although it was four blocks away.

He abandoned that plan in 2011 and there has been little apparent opposition to the smaller museum or the development itself.

The project now includes two multi-story penthouses on the top four floors along with a pool, gym and kids’ playroom.

The deal, finalized Tuesday, was funded by the London branch of Malayan Banking Berhad.

The project was designed by Michel Abboud of SOMA Architects, along with Ismael Leyva Architects, and will include a 2,821 square-foot public plaza, green space and a retail shop.

Why are NYC politicians behind this desecration of hallowed ground?  Why are they bending over backwards to allow the Muslims a symbolic propaganda triumph that will be heard around the world?  And if it isn’t a symbolic “holy” mission of Islamic extremist propaganda, why are they building on Ground Zero, the site of the worst Terrorist attack ever on American soil?

And…why are Obama and his Liberal minions in the Main Stream Media and Entertainment, so adamant about allowing Dress-wearing Johnny to use Women and Girls Public Restrooms, as the next step in advancing “LGBT Rights”, while embracing their “Islamic Friends, who kill  people of these “alternate lifestyles”?

First off…while I have met some very nice American Muslims, I have also been inside a mosque where I was looked at as if they wanted to take a scimitar to my neck.

If Moderate Muslims are not behind their radical brethren’s eternal jihad against us infidels, they need to get their mugs in front of the cable news networks’ TV cameras and say so…because all I see representing them when I turn on the news, are the abrasive members of CAIR, blaming America for all the world’s troubles.

Which is ironic, because the President of the United States of America is demonstrably Islam’s biggest supporter in this country, as so aptly proven by his refusal to participate in the March Against Radical Islam, led by 50 World Leaders, held Paris France after the horrible Islamic Terrorist attack there.

Are “The Smartest People in the Room” so contrary, as to not realize that Radical Islam punishes every single social issue that American Liberals so “righteously” defend in this nation?

The maddening thing is that every time you challenge liberals on this fact, they try to equate radical Islam with American Christianity.

Frankly, the ignorance of these young Liberals blows my mind.

When Christians become “radicalized”, we want to share the testimony of what God has done for us through His love, with everyone we meet. We get involved in our local church and we become better fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and American Citizens.

When Muslims become “radicalized”, they want to “kill the Infidels” in the name of “Allah the Merciful”.

In the case of the Chechen Muslim brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, their immersion into Radical Islam led them to “kill the infidels” that horrendous day.

In the case of the barbarians of ISIS, it has turned them into doppelgangers of the Nazi Butchers of Dachau.

Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 70-75% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

As a Lifeway Survey taken in 2014  showed, older Americans, such as myself, actually see radical Islam and Sharia law for what it is.

Why is that?

I believe that it is because of the old adage,

With age comes wisdom.

Older Americans can remember when the Shah of Iran was deposed and the Radical Mullahs took over the nation, holding Americans hostage, under the ineffectual American President Jimmy Carter, for 144 days.

The only reason that those hostages were not killed and were let go, was the inauguration of President Ronald Wilson Reagan.

The only thing that these barbarians fear is strength, as the leader of Jordan has demonstrated.

Older Americans were raised differently than this current generation, for the most part. We were raised to understand Christianity’s place, as the stitching, in the fabric of our nation.

As I wrote earlier, American Christianity is a legacy which our fathers and their fathers, bequeathed to us, along with the courage to stand up for our beliefs.

Our Founding Documents and our System of Law are based on our Judeo-Christian Beliefs.

This latest generation, seems to be more interested in giving Dress-wearing Johnny his perceived “Constitutional Right” to “drop trou” in the company of our wives, daughters, and daughters-in-law in public and school restrooms and locker rooms, or watching a woman who takes a bath in fruit loops, interviewing the President of the United States, than they are about what is actually happening in our nation as related to our Sovereignty and our very lives.

This generation’s predilection for situational ethics, relative morality, and all-encompassing political correctness, is reminiscent of the cattle who are led up the ramp to the slaughter house.

They go through their lives, content in their ignorance, until the blade falls.

Unfortunately, this is the generation that we are leaving our country to.

It is time for them to wake up, grow up, and stand up…before it’s too late.

Until He Comes,
