 3 Questions to Keep Muslim Terrorists Out of America
How to screen Muslim immigrants for Islamic terror.
January 27, 2017
by Daniel Greenfield

The Nonimmigrant Visa application form filled out by the 9/11 hijackers asked, “Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization?”
They checked the box that said, ‘No’ and they were in.

The current incarnation of the form asks the same perfunctory and generic question. An actual terrorist is as likely to check the box as he is to finger a rosary while eating a ham sandwich and singing Hava Nagila. But since 9/11, the terrorist threat has evolved from foreign cells penetrating this country to domestic Islamist terrorists emerging out of Muslim settlements already occupying this country.

Most Islamic terrorists that the FBI has been dealing with had no specific terror plans at the time that they entered this country. Some Islamic terrorists, like the Tsarnaev perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing, came here as children. Others, like Omar Mateen, the Pulse shooter, and Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood killer, contrived to be born in this country to foreign parents.

Immigration screening has to do more than just ask terrorists to check a box if they plan to fly planes into our skyscrapers. We must identify visitors and immigrants who are at a high risk of becoming terrorists in the first or second generation. The only way to do this is with a holistic strategy that examines the worldview of new immigrants and the Islamic communities they intend to be part of.
Instead of checking a perfunctory box, it is important to interrogate how a Muslim applicant views his religion and its interaction with the rest of the world. And to examine the mosque he plans to attend.

For example, attendees at the infamous Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia included Nidal Hasan, its former Imam was Al Qaeda leader Anwar Al-Awlaki, and a number of key figures associated with the mosque were linked to Islamic terrorism. Any Muslim immigrants planning to attend the mosque could be considered at high risk for engaging in terrorism regardless of their stated views.

Our current screening methods are laughably crude.

The immigrant visa form asks about engaging in and funding terrorism. It does not however specify what a terrorist group is. Muslims define terrorism differently and do not consider many of the Islamic terror groups listed on the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organizations list to be terrorists.

It asks about membership in the “Communist or other totalitarian party” and participation in various Columbian terrorist and militant organizations.  Despite the thousands of people killed by Islamic terrorists in this country in the last few decades, it fails to ask anything about specific Islamist groups.
That should change.

Despite all the assurances about vetting, the forms don’t even bother to ask about membership in Al Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas or their parent organization, the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is to Islamic terrorism what the Communist party was to subversive and terrorist groups during the Cold War.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a totalitarian organization. Its motto is, “Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” This credo reflects the objective of a theocratic Islamic State to be achieved through any means: including violence. Its members have perpetrated and aided Islamic terrorism here and around the world. These include Osama bin Laden, Yasser Arafat and the Brotherhood perpetrators of the genocide in Sudan.

Any Muslim immigrant who had ties to the Brotherhood has falsely answered the question and should be deported.  If he falsely answered this question on his naturalization application, he should be subject to denaturalization and deported. Any Muslim who has subsequently become involved with Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as CAIR, ISNA, the MSA and countless others, should be investigated for pre-existing links with the terror network and prevented from becoming a citizen of this country.

Communities where Muslim immigrants propose to settle should be tested for their extremism levels as defined by the preponderance of Muslim Brotherhood institutions. Muslim immigrants who seek out communities under the influence of Brotherhood institutions should be considered at a higher risk of engaging in terrorism either in the first or second generation without regard for their current views.
Our goal is not just to stop terror plots now. Our goal must be to stop terrorism a decade from now.

Our counterterrorism is reactive instead of proactive. Reactive counterterrorism is measured by the time we have to react. When a terrorist opens fire in a shopping mall, reaction time is measured in minutes or seconds. His original descent into Islamic terror plots may go on for months or years. But the closer we get to the source of the problem, the more lead time we have until we are no longer reactive, but proactive. Instead of rushing to stop the next attack, we can transform the entire battlefield.
That must be our objective.

Our biggest problem is that we aren’t asking the right questions. Asking a Muslim if he is a terrorist is the wrong question. Islamic terrorists don’t see themselves as terrorists. They view themselves as devout Muslims. That is how we must see them if we are to find them out and stop them before they strike.

The root cause of Islamic terrorism is the idea that Muslims are superior and non-Muslims are inferior. Exposing this conviction won’t be done with a terrorism check box. Many Muslims who go on to commit acts of terror in the name of Islamic Supremacism have no such plans when they enter the country. They do however believe that there is a primal struggle between Muslims and non-Muslims. It is this belief that they eventually put into practice at some later date by actually engaging in Islamist violence.

Instead of asking them whether they are terrorists, we ought to ask them how they view their participation in American life in light of the Koranic verse that commands Muslims, “O you who believe, do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends. ”And whether they are willing to disavow the message of such terrorist verses of the Koran as, “Do not take friends from them unless they migrate in the Way of Allah. But if they turn away (from Islam), seize them and kill them wherever you find them.”

If they are not willing to disavow calls for the murder of non-Muslims, such as, “I will cast terror into the hearts of non-believers. Therefore strike off their heads”, they present a serious terrorism risk.
Can we really afford to allow Muslim immigrants into the United States who believe that they ought to “fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion will all be for Allah”? What better predictor of terror risk could there be than those who believe that they must “kill the non-believers wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them?” This is the origin of Islamic terrorism. It’s the acid test for every Muslim migrant.

It all comes down to three simple questions.

  1. Have you ever had any associations with the Muslim Brotherhood or any of its front groups?
  2. Will you commit to avoiding associations with Brotherhood mosques and other entities in this country? Are you aware that you may be deported if you do not?
  3. Do you disavow the following verses of the Koran calling for violence against non-Muslims?

Such simple questions are far more relevant than a terrorism check box because they address what terrorists actually believe, not what we believe about them. They will not stop an active terrorist, but asking them will help keep out the terrorists of tomorrow.

Muslim immigrants coming to America must make a choice. As must we. Both Muslims and non-Muslims must come to grips with the violence inherent in Islam if we are to break the cycle of Islamic terrorism.

There are excerpts from the posts below which discuss  just a few of the ways that the enemies within are plotting against America. 
There seems to be an almost hysterical movement to put the pedal to the metal. 
Has the newly arisen populism jolted the globalists and their useful idiots into reality?. 
Apparently, their minions are sounding the clarion, and not just by demonstrations and riots in the streets.
The beneath the surface funding of the “protests” and organizational activities fuel the fires of anarchy and drive not only the U.S. but the entire world toward the endgame. 
And there are those who will profit from the chaos they have created.

There is a great deal of information below with many links.

First, let’s view the obvious which is simply the surface:

The Democrats Retreat From Reality
Liberals cash in while the left takes control BY: Matthew Continetti
“Retreat” is an appropriate description of what took place in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, this week. Senate Democrats took a break from not confirming President Trump’s cabinet to visit this historic city in a state the president won by 40 points. According to Politico the assembled were scheduled to hear from associates of the Clinton family and to “hold lessons on how to talk to real people.” Oh to be a fly on the wall.

I like to imagine Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer nodding sagely as Joe Manchin, the only Democratic senator with a modicum of common sense, asks a group of Trump voters to explain why calling people drug-addled unemployable racist misogynistic fascists is not, in fact, the best way to earn their votes. It’s moments like these when Barbara Boxer’s absence from the Democratic caucus would be most felt, I think. Faced with Trump supporters, the former California senator likely would respond with a hysterical and barely coherent monologue involving climate change, immigration, abortion rights, and gun control, all the while oblivious to the fact that these were the very issues that brought Trump to office. At least Boxer has pizzazz. These days the role of the clueless liberal proclaiming her moral supremacy over the déclassé is left to the nondescript, soporific, Dolores Umbridge-like Patty Murray. Here is yet another example of national decline”. More

Memo on how to defeat Trump was handed out to big money liberal donors at posh Florida retreat BY: Joe Schoffstall
David Brock, the seasoned liberal operative and Clinton loyalist who founded Media Matters, huddled with more than 100 donors last weekend at the swanky Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, Fla. to map out how Democrats will “kick Donald Trump’s ass.”

The Washington Free Beacon attended the retreat and obtained David Brock’s private and confidential memorandum from the meeting. The memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” outlines Brock’s four-year agenda to attack Trump and Republicans using Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and Shareblue.

The memo contains plans for defeating Trump through impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”

Brock sought to raise $40 million in 2017 for his organizations, and hoped the retreat would lead to the creation of a liberal donor network to rival the network of the conservative Koch brothers.

Now For The Money:
Finance and economics
“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough money to buy it back again…Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue to be slaves of the banks and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.”
– Josiah Stamp, former Governor of the Bank of England during the 1920’s……

Finance as a Mechanism to Transform Societies:
“Throughout the recent century the powers of financial capitalism have used their control over money to transform whole societies and the world at large. They have funded both sides of WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, funded and instigated both the Russian Revolution and the Chinese Revolution. They have created the mortgage / housing crisis in the United States and actively promoted the current U.S. Economic Collapse. Throughout history they have used their power over money and finance to foment war and revolution as means of transforming society in order to further their control and power.” More

A bit of lunacy?
“… half a world away at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Nobel Laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz made remarks earlier this week that the US should “get rid of currency.”
He means paper currency, as in the US should not only get rid of $100 bills… but ALL paper currency– 50s, 20s, 10s, 5s, and even 1s.
You guessed it. Stiglitz suggests that regular people don’t need paper money, and that it’s only useful for drug dealers, terrorists, tax evaders, and money launders.
This thinking is so 20th century, and it’s simply wrong.
ISIS is a great example.
The US military has literally blown up more than a billion dollars worth of ISIS’s stockpiles of physical cash during airstrikes.
But this hasn’t affected their terrorist activities one bit.
That’s because the most notorious terrorist group on the planet famously uses both the world’s oldest currency (gold) and the world’s newest currency (Bitcoin). …
Stiglitz also relies on the old claim that cash facilitates illicit activity.
Again, this thinking only highlights a Dark Ages mentality.
In the today’s world, drug dealers and prostitutes accept credit cards.
No matter what you’re selling on a street corner, whether it’s hot dogs or marijuana, there are plenty of solutions (like Stripe, Square, or PayPal) to easily allow anyone to accept credit card payments.
But these intellectuals seem stuck in a Pablo Escobar fantasy that drug dealers have entire rooms filled with cash.
What Stiglitz, and perhaps many law enforcement agencies, fail to realize is that one of the biggest tools in masking illegal activity is actually Amazon.com.
Specifically, Amazon gift cards.
If you’re looking to quietly and easily pay large sums of money, even tens of thousands of dollars, you can do so with Amazon gift cards.
Amazon gift cards are essentially a “cash equivalent”.
Amazon sells just about everything on the planet, so its gift cards can either be spent or quickly resold for cash.
(You can obscure a financial transaction even more by using an Amazon gift card to buy another gift card…)
Curiously there are no loud, universal calls to ban Amazon gift cards. That’s because these policymakers and academics are stuck in the 1980s”….. More

Will There Be A Financial Crisis in 2017?
I am a fixed income analyst with a fascination for patterns. Here’s one to consider: since the Bretton Woods Agreement ended in the 1970s, there has been a financial crisis in the seventh year in three of the last four decades: 1987, 1997, 2007. One way or another, every crisis has involved Asia.

For example, the name for the 1987 stock market crisis is Black Monday. However, the crisis can be traced back to Asian market jitters the Sunday night before, which kick-started a cascade of structured stock and derivative trades and strained the market beyond its capacity….

I am not a macro-economist. But, like Chauncey Gardiner, I have been there: I watched futures prices go limit-down from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade on Black Monday. My savvy Moody’s colleague in Hong Kong, Lynn Exton, warned me in 1996 about the coming Asian bank crisis. I understood the vulnerability of structured credit ratings before the GFC. In fact, I left that world in 1999 to plug the widening black hole.

So, if you ask me whether we are going to have another global financial crisis in 2017…I would say the odds are good. This one probably started in 2013 and by now is well under way.

For the conspiracy? minded:
“The advent of the industrial revolution, the invention of a banking system based on usury, and scientific and technological advancements during the past three centuries have had three major consequences. These have made the incredible concentration of wealth in a few hands possible, have led to the construction of increasingly deadly weapons culminating in weapons of mass destruction, and have made it possible to mould the minds of vast populations by application of scientific techniques through the media and control of the educational system.

The wealthiest families on planet earth call the shots in every major upheaval that they cause. Their sphere of activity extends over the entire globe, and even beyond, their ambition and greed for wealth and power knows no bounds, and for them, most of mankind is garbage – “human garbage.” It is also their target to depopulate the globe and maintain a much lower population compared to what we have now.
It was Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild (1840-1915) who once said: “I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the British Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.” What was true of the British Empire is equally true of the US Empire, controlled remotely by the London based Elite through the Federal Reserve System. Judged by its consequences, the Federal Reserve System is the greatest con job in human history.” More

And Finally:Guess who stands to profit from the immigration miasma:
Now the preeminent funder of border-busting campaigns in the U.S. and overseas has entered into a partnership with credit card giant MasterCard Inc. to create something called Humanity Ventures..

Soros is one of the world’s most prominent proponents of the displacement of Westerners and erosion of traditional Western identity through mass migration. His Open Society Foundations has donated millions of dollars to organizations and causes promoting everything from mass migration to radical feminism.

His destructive activities are so prolific that last week, Szilard Nemeth, vice-chairman of Hungary’s ruling Fidesz Party, called for OSF and any organizations it funds to be banished from the country.

Unfortunately for those who cherish national sovereignty, border security, and traditional values, OSF is not prepared to go quietly into the night and leave sovereign nations to administer their own affairs.

Every  Conservative’s, (and many a true Democrat’s) dream:

Could the effects of our long national nightmare be erased in a snap? Will the end of a one man power grab and his attempt to “fundamentally transform” America into a pile of Socialist rubble become history?


The article below addresses such a possibility.

CRA: The “Regulatory Game Changer” That Could Wipe Out 8 Years Of Obama Regs In An Hour
by Tyler Durden

After a pompous, liberal agenda was crammed down the throats of the American people during his first two years in office, President Obama suffered staggering losses in Congress for the next six years that cost Democrats control of both houses. But, heavy Democrat losses, courtesy of an electorate that vehemently rejected a far-left agenda, didn’t stop Obama from continuing to push through countless new rules and regulations from the White House all while pushing his authority to the brink of every Constitutional boundary known to man.

Of course, the problem with “legislating from the White House” is that all those rules and regulations can be undone by the next administration. And, as Kimberley Strassel points out in a Wall Street Journal Opinion piece today, a little know tool within the Congressional Review Act could allow Republicans to wipe out 8 full years of Obama’s liberal agenda, with a simple majority vote, all while preventing similar rules from every being recreated by future administrations.

Todd Gaziano on Wednesday stepped into a meeting of free-market attorneys, think tankers and Republican congressional staff to unveil a big idea. By the time he stepped out, he had reset Washington’s regulatory battle lines.

These days Mr. Gaziano is a senior fellow in constitutional law at the Pacific Legal Foundation. But in 1996 he was counsel to then-Republican Rep. David McIntosh. He was intimately involved in drafting and passing a bill Mr. McIntosh sponsored: the Congressional Review Act. No one knows the law better.

Everyone right now is talking about the CRA, which gives Congress the ability, with simple majorities, to overrule regulations from the executive branch. Republicans are eager to use the law, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy this week unveiled the first five Obama rules that his chamber intends to nix.

But what Mr. Gaziano told Republicans on Wednesday was that the CRA grants them far greater powers, including the extraordinary ability to overrule regulations even back to the start of the Obama administration. The CRA also would allow the GOP to dismantle these regulations quickly, and to ensure those rules can’t come back, even under a future Democratic president. No kidding.

Here’s how it works:
It turns out that the first line of the CRA requires any federal agency promulgating a rule to submit a “report” on it to the House and Senate. The 60-day clock starts either when the rule is published or when Congress receives the report—whichever comes later.

“There was always intended to be consequences if agencies didn’t deliver these reports,” Mr. Gaziano tells me. “And while some Obama agencies may have been better at sending reports, others, through incompetence or spite, likely didn’t.” Bottom line: There are rules for which there are no reports. And if the Trump administration were now to submit those reports—for rules implemented long ago—Congress would be free to vote the regulations down.

But, it gets even better:

There’s more. It turns out the CRA has a expansive definition of what counts as a “rule”—and it isn’t limited to those published in the Federal Register. The CRA also applies to “guidance” that agencies issue. Think the Obama administration’s controversial guidance on transgender bathrooms in schools or on Title IX and campus sexual assault. It is highly unlikely agencies submitted reports to lawmakers on these actions.

“If they haven’t reported it to Congress, it can now be challenged,” says Paul Larkin, a senior legal research fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Mr. Larkin, also at Wednesday’s meeting, told me challenges could be leveled against any rule or guidance back to 1996, when the CRA was passed.

The best part? Once Congress overrides a rule, agencies cannot reissue it in “substantially the same form” unless specifically authorized by future legislation. The CRA can keep bad regs and guidance off the books even in future Democratic administrations—a far safer approach than if the Mr. Trump simply rescinded them.

As Strassel points out: “The entire point of the CRA was to help legislators rein in administrations that ignored statutes and the will of Congress. Few White House occupants ever showed more contempt for the law and lawmakers than Mr. Obama. Republicans if anything should take pride in using a duly passed statue to dispose of his wayward regulatory regime. It’d be a fitting and just end to Mr. Obama’s abuse of authority—and one of the better investments of time this Congress could ever make.”

How many of us missed this outright indictment of capitalism and freedom released two years ago:

“At a news conference last week [02//15], Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.”

Like Obamacare, thinking citizens initially realized that the climate change/global warming meme had a hidden agenda. Neither was about aiding the citizenry nor saving the planet. Clearly, the  science behind climate change was most definitely not settled. Nevertheless, the barkers of this narrative continued hawking their ideology like the traveling medicine men of the old west who sold their “cures” out of the backs of their wagons.

The medicine men were smart enough to get out of town before they were exposed as phonies. Unfortunately, the present day hucksters have the backing of the elitists/globalists who are all too willing and able to force this “cure” for planet Earth down the collective throats of its inhabitants. Facts, alternative viewpoints, and historical data on the earth’s ever changing climate were ignored, and those who referred to them were excoriated.

There are a plethora of links regarding the DOJ actually considering prosecuting Climate Change deniers! Here is but one of many. The Ministry Of Truth strikes again. The Climate Change issue began as an iron fist in a velvet glove. Now, the velvet glove is off.

Can we turn the ship of totalitarianism around? Is it too late? Will the newly elected administration bring some reality testing to this issue?

U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare 

Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.

At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

Figueres is perhaps the perfect person for the job of transforming “the economic development model” because she’s really never seen it work. “If you look at Ms. Figueres’ Wikipedia page,” notes Cato economist Dan Mitchell: Making the world look at their right hand while they choke developed economies with their left.

Women’s March sponsored by Communist Party USA among others:
Posted on January 23, 2017 by TMH By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

One of the many radical groups who sponsored the anti-Free Market, anti-Trump temper tantrum thinly disguised as a “Women’s March” the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump was the Communist Party USA, whose organization was unapologetically featured at the Women’s March website as a “partner” of the march.

While the New York Times asks “what’s next” after the “success of the Women’s March,” but fails to mention the radical nature of the organizers, as usual.
Other associated groups include the Human Rights Campaign (co-founded by accused pedophile Terry Bean and responsible for the template used to push the ‘bathroom bills’ across America), Planned Parenthood, Americans for Democratic Action, Democratic Socialists of America, Demos, NARAL, EMILY’s List, and many, many others.
Highlighted speakers of the Women’s March include Angela Davis, who was a vice presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA (twice) and a founder and long time member of Committees of Correspondence, a splinter group of the Communist Party USA.

Featured speakers Dolores Huerta and Gloria Steinem are honorary members of Democratic Socialists of America, a Gramscist-Marxist organization closely allied to the Communist Party USA. Harry Belafonte and LaDonna Harris are both long-time radical left activists who have been consistently and heavily involved in socialist/communist causes.
Other speakers included president of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards, and Senior Communist Party USA Leader Judith Le Blanc, who, as revealed by Trevor Loudon, lent “her revolutionary expertise to the often violent ‘peaceful protesters’ seeking to permanently shut down the nearly completed and highly strategic Dakota Access Pipeline.”
Speakers Ai-jen Poo, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour are all radical activists closely associated with the group that started the “Black Lives Matter” movement, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization.

Subversive organizations like those represented at the Women’s March have been emboldened – and in many cases, funded – in recent years by the Obama administration. It is this author’s fervent hope that Americans will start to recognize that “movements” such as Black Lives Matter or this recent Women’s March are anything-but-grassroots and certainly do not have the best interests of Americans at heart.

 President Obama’s farewell comments made in Chicago on January 10th regarding race relations barely struck on any reality chord. Fully immersed in two of his favorite pastimes — denial and self-aggrandizement during that speech he said, “I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were 10, or 20 or 30 years ago…”

While that statement may arguably be true for relations now versus 5060 years ago (the riotous 1960’s), it is a definite stretch regarding race relations during the last couple of decades, and an absolute fantasy about race relations during the Obama presidency. Upon Obama taking office in 2009 an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll had 77% of Americans responding that race relations were fairly good or very good. That was a culmination in improved relations spanning many years. However, nearing the end of his presidency, the response to that same poll question had declined to just 34%; the lowest level in more than two decades. 

 

At this time of year, when we recognize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth, we shudder to think what Dr. King might think about race relations during the past eight years. Let us remember his words: “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism … that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.” That is a timeless, inspirational message to be sure. 

 

In contrast to Dr. King’s message, President Obama said in an interview with Marc Maron: “What is also true is that the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives you know, that casts a long shadow. And that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.” [Maron] “Racism? [Obama] “Racism.”

 

Obama’s characterization of racism as part of the American DNA is purely, tragically nihilistic. It conveys that no matter what we deliberately do to rise above racial division we remain – deep to the core – racist. It further expresses that “racist DNA” inescapably passes on to our children resulting in their inherent racism.

Dr. King’s message was a direct rejection of Obama’s notion.

Destructively, President Obama’s legacy is one of failed race relations, despite his tiresome spin on the subject. His way of feebly dealing with the truth is to toss an indictment at the American people, saying that our expectations were too high when he took office. Race relations had been steadily improving for decades prior to Obama being elected president. And on that rising tide of improvement was there not genuine hope by many in finally rising above race when the American people lifted him to the highest political office in the land? The utter collapse of race relations after he took office that’s on him.

 
 

Is racism really embedded in our American DNA as Obama says? Quite the contrary. Objectively, American DNA is actually comprised of the very ingredients compelling the rejection of racism: individual liberty, capitalism, and acceptance.

This country was founded in order to stop and further prevent oppression, intolerance, and injustice.

American republicanism, under the faithfully applied principle that every citizen is equal in creation and under the law, is a socio-political structure systemically opposing injustice and intolerance. Excepting government misuse and meddling, the American precepts are liberating in their impartiality regarding any superficial human condition, including race. True capitalism, devoid of political cronyism and built upon the foundation of limited government, is emancipating in its liberty and equality, providing for any person to rise to any stature based on self-reliance and individual determination.

Barack Obama, as president of the United States for eight years, possessed a singular opportunity to uphold and promote American precepts and unify our diverse population into a common cohesion: simply, as American citizens. Instead, he chose a path of transformation, derision, and alienation. The result as he vacates the presidency is a nation regressed in race relations. 

 

As Obama leaves office, this is a time to renew our hope for a fresh president to lead a correction in our nation’s course by making the most of colorblind American precepts. Those precepts, truly what comprises our DNA, and contrary to Obama’s notion, have nothing to do with racism. Instead, they enhance our American being by providing the foundation for liberty and justice for every citizen, regardless of race. We can and will overcome Obama’s idea of perpetual racism with a new leader dedicated to reclaiming American foundational precepts. The consequence will be opportunities for growth and advancement for each citizen willing to work within the American core framework to attain success in the American dream.

 The image above sums up the fascist, er, leftist viewpoint as to proper procedure for regaining their lost power. There is far more to the fueled chaos than the publicized upset of snowflakes and buttercups who need safe spaces and therapy to deal with their “PTSD”. Snowflakes and buttercups eventually melt; however, the true drivers behind the war against America are powerful and well funded.


Again, it is idealists, and useful idiots bankrolled by the Elites, Globalists, The Enemy Within, and a well organized Shadow Government in the making who are the force behind this internal war.

We must remain vigilant. Do not be lulled into a false sense of security by the lefts’ overwhelming defeat in the recent election. The worst may well be yet to come. We must spread the word.

And Now The Left’s War On Normal Americans Truly Begins

President-elect Donald Trump replaces President Faily McWorsethancarter Friday, but we’re not going to be able to Netflix and chill in the fight for freedom. The left and its establishment allies are desperate to regain the power they see slipping away, and we need to understand that the only way to stop them is to beat them to a pulp and leave them whimpering in the fetal position, crying out for their genderfluid mommies.

The left’s strategy is simple – deny normal Americans normalcy. After all, that’s what we really want, a return to normal. We haven’t experienced real normal since the Democrats denied the legitimacy of W’s election in 2000 – you know, during one of those time frames when denying the legitimacy of the president was cool, a phenomenon that coincidentally only occurs whenever a Republican wins. Then came 9/11 followed by 15-plus years of botched wars and economic decline, along with an unprecedented cultural offensive against normal Americans. Once the only place you heard that average Americans were racist, sexist, homophobic, everythingist, everythingphobic was on college campuses; now, with the active assistance of Obama and his collaborators, it’s everywhere – in our entertainment, in the media, in our faces.

And we’re sick of it. #ThisIsWhyYouGotTrump

We want to return to normality, and in an ironic twist of fate it was Donald Trump, the most unnormal guy imaginable, who promised it. Hillary Clinton promised more war and more weakness, more of the same economic malaise that has left most of America suffering, and much, much more of the same cultural scolding and calculated oppression of anyone so subhuman as to not live in a city and believe there are only two sexes. Trump committed to return to America’s normal state of economic prosperity, to America’s normal state of military supremacy abroad, to America’s normal state of self-confidence in our own exceptionalism. And we wanted to go back to a time where creepy activists weren’t trying to shoehorn men in skirts into our little girls’ locker rooms.

Normalcy. It’s what we want, and liberals want to deny it to us in order to doom Donald Trump and reopen their path back into power.

So how will they do it? Constant resistance at every turn. They will ignore norms and rules – remember, norms and rules are only supposed to constrain us. They will lie, cheat, and engage in any conduct that they believe will help their hateful cause. A huge part of the progressive effort will go toward policing their own for any weakness or faltering in their lockstep opposition to everything Trump and the GOP do. Take that, Springsteen cover band! How dare you perform the Boss’s hackneyed anthems for the president? The good thing is we will get to watch four to eight years of the left devouring itself. I’m already stockpiling the popcorn.

In Washington, there are Democrats whose constituents supported Trump and want him to succeed. In a normal world, these would-be moderates might cooperate and compromise with the GOP majority to influence policy, but their own party absolutely will not let them do that now. The hard left activists are in control, and they will crush any dissent. So the Democrats who might have moderated and played along now have to defy their party to do so knowing the activists will not be forgiving. And it’ll be wonderful watching the Dems kneecap their 2018 candidates to force utterly symbolic losing party line votes on cabinet appointments and on things like the Obamacare repeal.


This is great for us. It will force the Dems in moderate or even red areas to fall even further out of step with their voters – something that has cost the Dems over a thousand seats across the country since Obama was sworn in. In 2018, something like 25 Democrats or Dem-voting independents are up for election to the Senate, many in moderate areas. If Trump is seen as succeeding, especially on the economy, that could make the midterms a Democrat bloodbath. A wonderful, delicious bloodbath.

Then there is the cultural fight. In Hollywood, the left is piling on anyone who refuses to completely reject Trump and, by extension, all of us normals. Look at Nicole Kidman, who the fascists attempted to crucify for simply saying what Hillary Clinton had been saying right up until she lost – that you ought to accept the legitimacy of the winner. Look at the death threats against a blind opera singer. Look at those clowns lecturing us at their awards shows/narcissism orgies. As the left always does, it is relying on fear to enforce its creepy conformity.

It will work for a bit, especially since most entertainers today are craven wusses – in World War II, Jimmy Stewart left stardom to fly B-24s over Ludwigshafen. Now, adverse election results make them flee to Arizona to commune with rocks. Many entertainers will decide to lower their profiles in order to avoid the Hollywood Gestapo, but normals won’t like the bullying. Normals generally think people should be allowed to say what they want, and they generally think you should respect the president even if you didn’t vote for him – pretty much what Nicole Kidman said. Do you think more normal people or fewer will be going to the next Meryl Streep movie? Sure, her target demographic of loveless cat women will always show up to watch her talk in a funny accent, but the rest of us? Hard pass.

Then there is the fake moral posturing. We will see plenty of this tactic, and we need to laugh at it. The notion that because John Lewis got beat up by fellow Democrats a half century ago somehow immunizes him from criticism for his cheesy lies about and general scumminess toward Republicans today is a joke. It’s always fun to watch liberals unilaterally designate “heroes” and inform us we’re not allowed to say anything negative about their antics. When John McCain was running what could only in the loosest sense of the word be called a campaign against Obama, the left wasn’t enforcing the Hero Exemption on his behalf. That only became a thing again when it became a useful thing again after Trump ignored it. Democrats don’t get to choose my heroes, or yours, and we need to aggressively reject this tiresome gambit.

What about the lying mainstream media? Those hacks – no one’s listening to them anymore. Still, every day every story is going to be about the tyranny that is Trump, except there won’t be any actual tyranny. Homelessness is going to make a big comeback now that Obama is gone. Everything will hit women, minorities, and men claiming to have uteruses hardest. No one cares. In pulling this same nonsense, the dying media will only hasten its own, long-overdue, demise. Hey media, remember those false perv stories about Trump – who do you think suffered a net loss of credibility, him or you?

Then there are the boycotts. Now, wussy corporate leaders will often roll over when a bunch of leftists tell them what to do. But it gets old. Eventually, companies are going to realize that you can’t succeed when you are alienating at least half of the population. Plus now we have a president who will not hesitate to call out dirtbags. A couple tweets from the president about companies who are dissing his supporters and that may reorient their priorities. Now, do we want a president directing his people away from private companies that engage in policies he dislikes? In theory, no. But now that you libs have changed the rules, hell yes! We need to deal the pain right back at them – it’s the only way they will learn.

A key problem with the liberal resistance strategy is that constant activism is exhausting. It’s even exhausting to watch – normal people are already tuning out the daily deluge of anti-Trump fake news in the lying mainstream media. The liberal strategy is to turn everything up to 11, but you can’t do that for four years. While the hardcore left is invested in its hatred of our new president, most of America is not. They don’t want every waking hour of their lives spent listening to people whine about Trump, especially when they generally like what he’s doing. The fact is Trump is already doing well. The market is up. He’s getting commitments for new jobs from big companies. Obamacare is getting a stake through its putrid heart. And the normals are going to tune out of the hate and reelect him to spite you liberal twerps.

Ah, the collective I.Q. Lies and smears seem to have a longer half life than nuclear waste, while the truth struggles to survive. Alleged sordid, scandalous behavior sells while the boring and sterile truth seems to lose life and withers on the vine.

The Mass media has heretofore been adept at manipulating the masses. However, in the sea change that has occurred throughout the entire 2016 primary process and election, veracity has been thrown a life line. 

While the alternative news can be partially credited; the populace was not fooled by the administration’s twisted rhetoric regarding  economic conditions as well as the divide and conquer war being waged. They became disgusted by the continued assertions that things were so much better than when the present administration assumed the White House. 

The approved narrative did not match what was happening in the trenches. The lack of good paying jobs, skyrocketing health care costs,  and social discord  could not be spun into Utopia, no matter how hard the operators juiced up the spin cycle.

Unable to accept defeat, the “loyal opposition” reached into the tool box and pulled out the time honored smear campaign wrench. Unfortunately for them, the accusations were debunked, and most of the suffering public did not fall for the lies. Nevertheless, the lies  continued to be repeated by the desperate, the anguished, and the elites.

Through it all, Trump pulled through courtesy of the disgusted working and middle classes, left wing arrogance and condescension, as well as alternative news aources. He is neither the Messiah, nor is he perfect. He is human. He was duly elected. Let’s see what he can do, despite the fact that his enemies are legion.

The Top 10 Trump Myths

Submitted by Gavin McInnes via TakiMag.com,
Fake news site Buzzfeed just published a fake news story that is so fake, it’s not even fake news. “It’s just fake,” as Kellyanne Conway put it. The editor of Buzzfeed himself says he has “serious reason to doubt the allegations in it,” but he published it anyway because this is “how we see the job of reporters in 2017.” So, the role of reporters is to just barf out whatever anyone throws at them? The dossier implicates the president-elect in everything from being a stooge for the Russian government to demanding women pee on him. It’s written like a prank from our side to lampoon how gullible and biased their side is. It’s also a good jumping-off point to discuss 10 other myths about our next president. 

(1) TRUMP IS AN ADMITTED SEXUAL PREDATOR
Jesus LORD in heaven above am I sick of talking about a private conversation two guys had in a bus 11 years ago. I’m honestly stunned this devoured so much of the presidential election. It’s completely irrelevant, but if you really want to get into the nitty-gritty of the whole thing, it’s the opposite of sexist. That’s right. Trump was marveling at what groupies let you get away with and saying it’s crazy. It’s the same as the time he said he could “shoot somebody” in the middle of Fifth Avenue and get away with it. The tone was “Can you believe this shit? These women will basically let you do anything.” Megyn Kelly said he “grabbed women against their will.” This is a lie. He said, “They let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
The real problem here is that people revile Trump so much they can’t imagine women adore him as much as, say, Elvis, who kissed whoever he wanted whenever he wanted. Sorry, libs, money and power are a bigger aphrodisiac than being a “feminist ally.”

(2) TRUMP MOCKED A HANDICAPPED REPORTER
Are you as frustrated by these myths as I am? Why would anyone on earth brag about randomly grabbing women by the vagina? Why would anyone mock a handicapped reporter? Insulting someone just because they’re handicapped is something you might do when you’re 7 years old and then deeply regret it when you’re 8. Meryl Streep won a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes and dedicated her entire speech to criticizing Trump for making fun of a crippled reporter. He wasn’t. He was making the same flustered gesture he makes to mimic everyone he sees as flustered. Video of him doing this to everyone is very easy to dig up (I made one too), but that doesn’t stop the likes of The Washington Post from claiming our “assertions are not supported by video evidence.”

(3) TRUMP’S BANKRUPTCIES PROVE HE’S A BAD BUSINESSMAN
This is yet another example of people who have never tried something judging those who have actually done it. I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole life. You’re pretty much looking at 12 failures for every successful venture. When you run hundreds of businesses, bankruptcies are an inevitability.
Also, lots of companies took advantage of bankruptcy laws in the 1990s. This was a problem with the system and its roots are in government intervention. It’s like the real estate collapse. Yes, Wall Streeters took advantage of the collapse, but that money was just sitting on the floor. It was sitting there because big government decided every black and Hispanic person in the country deserved a mortgage.

(4) TRUMP’S A HYPOCRITE BECAUSE CHINA MANUFACTURED HIS TIES
The same answer applies to this question. When everyone is cheating, to play by the rules is to lose. I made action figures for my old company many years ago and was determined to make them in America. I quickly learned this wouldn’t just make them expensive, it would make them so expensive we couldn’t do the project. That’s the world we are living in. It’s not a fantasy and it’s not based on what you would like to happen. Trump wants to get us to the point where we don’t have to outsource manufacturing to stay not just competitive, but in business.

(5) TRUMP’S INHERITANCE WOULD HAVE MADE MORE MONEY IN THE STOCK MARKET
Again, these are broke people scoffing at a businessman who made billions. Trump got $40 million in equity when his father died and today he’s worth $3.7 billion. Getting a million dollars and not blowing it all is an accomplishment. Look at lottery winners or retired athletes. According to economist Matt Palumbo, if Trump invested $40M in the market, today he would have $1.91 billion after tax. This assumes dozens of variables against Trump including the assumption he could liquidate his inheritance. At any rate, even when we throw liberals a bone with this hypothetical scenario he ends up almost $2 billion poorer.

(6) HE SAID “MEXICANS ARE RAPISTS”
A fun game to play with liberals is to demand, “What exact sentence did this person say that is factually incorrect?” He never said all Mexicans are rapists. He said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.… They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” His point was that a disproportionate number of the illegals who cross the border are rapists. I’d say 80% is a fairly disproportionate number. The age of consent there is 12. They’re certainly not NOT rapists.

(7) TRUMP WILL OVERTURN ROE V. WADE AND GAY MARRIAGE
I have no idea where this comes from, but abortion is pretty much the only thing I can get women to cite as a reason they chose Hillary over him. They seem to think he’s going to shut down Planned Parenthood and make abortions completely impossible in America despite absolutely zero evidence or any quote that even implies that.
The gays say the same thing about gay marriage, and when pressed for evidence, they say Mike Pence wants gays to be electrocuted. Trump has never implied he wants to do anything about gay marriage. His exact words were “It’s done.” Also, Pence never pushed for electroshock therapy for gays. His website once implied AIDS money should be redirected to “those seeking to change their sexual behavior.” Incidentally, if you got AIDS at a circuit party on meth after having sex nonstop for 36 hours, change your sexual behavior.

(8) TRUMP IS A BIGOT
 Trump is the opposite of a bigot. He is Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack, a loud, obnoxious blowhard who wants to party with anyone and everyone, right now. In fact, that’s what the old-money bigots hate about him. His country clubs refuse to cater to the elitism that defines most clubs. If you’re black or Jewish or a weird immigrant grocer but you’ve got the money to join, come on in.
Trump’s exposure to blacks has been the employed family men he worked with on job sites and the educated elites he’s worked with in business. He’s never lived near the ghetto. If anything, his life experience with blacks is abnormally positive. In other words, he likes them more than reality does.
As for Jews, all his adult kids are having sex with a Jew right now. His businesses are crammed to the ceiling with Chosen Ones. How can Jews not get this? I think their obsession with Nazis has been going on for so long, they’ve brainwashed themselves into being petrified of anyone who seems Aryan and alpha, even when the guy is on their side.
Do I need to include gays in this list? Sorry, LGBTQ, Trump doesn’t have a stance on you. He doesn’t care about you. Actually, we’re all pretty bored of you, to be honest. We’re not homophobes, we’re homoboreds.

(9) TRUMP WANTS TO DEPORT MUSLIMS
My reaction to most of these myths is “I wish.” Trump never said one thing about deporting Muslims. He didn’t even suggest a database of Muslims living in America. That was a reporter’s idea.
All Trump said was he’d like to have a “shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” This was during a time of unprecedented attacks on America, France, Britain, and Canada. Almost without fail, when we learn about these Muslim terrorists, we discover they spent time in a Muslim country being further radicalized and trained to better attack us. Would have been nice if we caught them on the way in or the way back in.
Of course, this idea—and it was an idea, not a dictum—gets morphed into an America where Muslims are randomly picked up off the street and thrown in a van. Indian millionaires like Aziz Ansari can moan that Trump makes him scared for his family and The New York Times bawls their eyes out.

(10) TRUMP’S WALL WON’T HAPPEN BECAUSE MEXICO SAID SO
Ex-president Vicente Fox keeps telling us he’s “not going to pay for that fucking wall,” like anyone asked him. Dude, you haven’t been president for over a decade, shut up. Nobody asked you or Enrique what you think of our plan.
We spend $58 billion more on Mexican goods than they spend on us. If a restaurant were making that much money off of you, you could ask for a seat by the window. You could also ask for a wall. Add to that the estimated $100 billion illegals cost us and coming down hard on immigration becomes very profitable. That’s more than enough for the $8–10 billion the wall will cost. Barack wasted that on Obamacare alone.

There are problems with Trump. I’m not nuts about him hiring his son-in-law and I don’t get why he’s making fun of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ratings. However, the left is too lazy to dig up anything valid so they stick to drama-club myths that make great headlines. This might have been effective if we hadn’t all figured out that the mainstream media is #FakeNews. Lie all you want about the president-elect, we’re no longer listening.

Hypocrisy on steroids:  
In the past, when the Intelligence Agencies countered some Democrat claims, the Dems excoriated them. Now due to recent reports, true or untrue, which besmirch Trump’s character, many in the party seem to be touting these bureaus as newly found best buddies.

Trump’s issues with the CIA, FBI, etc. are one thing. However by inserting themselves full throttle into the issue, as usual, the wingnut Dems  made themselves look exactly like their party’s symbol. They are a great disservice to the logical party members who truly understand what really happened in the 2016 presidential election. The Democrat Party had completely lost touch with the working and middle classes, and Hillary was a very flawed candidate. Period!

Presently,they would do best to be quiet, let the investigations play out, accept, with a modicum of decorum whatever conclusions result, and discourage violence as well as snowflake/buttercup behavior from the “traumatized” Hillary fans. Their present actions do not serve the party well.

Deep Cover Democrats

BY: Blake Seitz
January 13, 2017 12:20 pm

Ever since President-elect Donald Trump initiated his feud with the intelligence community, Democrats have discovered strange new respect for the nation’s spooks.

“They are now briefing the president elect, a person who has tried to discredit, disparage, and dismantle the existing intelligence community,” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said primly at a press conference.

The House Minority Leader struck a very different tone than she did in 2009, when she accused the CIA of intentionally “misleading” her with “inaccurate and incomplete information” about its interrogation techniques.

Likewise, Vice President Joe Biden called Trump’s criticism of the intelligence community “damaging”—but he was a famous antagonist of the CIA as a senator, voting to ban all covert operations during the height of the Cold War, a move that would have seriously endangered the United States in its spy war with the Soviet Union.

The Democrats’ sudden chumminess with the intelligence community is a big change after decades of lurid accusations and aggressive congressional oversight intended to tame the CIA and bring its covert activities into the light. Their battle for control over the agency lasted decades, from the Church Committee hearings of 1975, through the Latin American upheaval of the 1980s, to the interrogation and NSA surveillance debates of recent years. 

Congressional attempts to sanitize the CIA, led by Democratic lawmakers like Frank Church, Robert Torricelli, John Kerry, and Walter Mondale, had a “crippling” effect on the agency’s ability to protect the country, according to Stephen Knott of the Naval War College.

We can hope that Democrats have undergone a real change of heart about the intelligence community. The timing of their supposed change, and decades of evidence, suggest otherwise.

A three minute video with some very interesting comments.

There has been an uprising of the citizenry and a reshaping of the body politic in the 2016 election. Whether the elites like it or not, they have only themselves to blame. They ignored the middle and working classes.

The electorate has been honing its battle axes for the past 8 years, and they are now becoming sharper. Talking points are becoming more effective and the truth can no longer be so easily hidden–despite the apparent crack down on free speech, a few examples of which can be found here, here and here.


The ranks against elitist and globalist domination are growing. There are a plethora of organizations that have been dealing with this situation since 2009. However the fight was severely hindered when, in the past, many were denied 501-3c status by the IRS which had become an obvious tool of the White House whose apparent objective seemed to be the trampling of the first amendment. There were even hearings on the matter which appeared to have gone nowhere, even though there was talk of impeaching the IRS head John Koskinen.


Nevertheless, the populists won in 2016 and the people now expect those in charge to deliver while they themselves deal with the everyday snowflakes, anarchists, and useful idiots of the left of whom they may run into daily.


Below are some interesting talking points, which many are probably already using. However, one may well find an unknown nugget or two to be added to the list.

“Paradoxically, populism is a movement of individualists whose common denominator is the U.S. Constitution. Unlike our cultural opponents who hold the hive-mind mentality of big-government statists, our true strength isn’t in our numbers, but the rightness of our cause.”

10 rules for radicals of the right

author-image  by  Scott Lively  

In 1971 Marxist strategist Saul D. Alinsky published his infamous handbook for “community organizers,” titled “Rules for Radicals,” which ever since has been the essential resource for left-wing agitators, including the Clintons and Obama.

Alinsky dedicated his “Rules for Radicals” to “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer” [the entity also known as Satan, the Father of Lies and Enslaver of Mankind].

As we conservative populists begin to reclaim our nation from Alinsky’s anti-American Bolsheviks, we need a resource for pro-American constitutionalists. These Rules for Radicals of the Right are dedicated to the One who conquered Lucifer:

1. Tell the truth without hesitation or apology.
Truth is our most powerful weapon and strategy. Truth is objective, verifiable and self-evident to a clear-thinking mind grounded in rationality and knowledge of the facts. Rationality proceeds from recognition and respect for the created order and the Creator Himself. His immutable laws provide the fixed standards by which any material or spiritual thing can be measured, proved and trusted. Without fixed standards there can be no steadfast rule of law making all men equal and free, only arbitrary rule by those with power to enforce their will.

2. Keep it simple but not stupid.
The enemy relies on confusion to create chaos and then exploits it to take control. He weaves a complex fabric of falsehoods, half-truths, misrepresentations, misdirection, hidden false assumptions and sophistry designed to mislead the gullible into drawing false conclusions. Complexity favors the deceivers. Honest and intelligent simplification frees captive minds.

3. Trust or not trust, but always verify.
People who spin narratives or otherwise interpret facts or events instead of providing the straight facts to interpret for yourself often have their own agenda. This includes not just leftist media but can be any information source, including those you think are trustworthy. Whenever you’re expected to form a conclusion on any issue based on the authority of the source rather than the full and free presentation of the facts, including opposing opinions and interpretations, don’t trust it. This is especially true when an inherently controversial narrative is repeated consistently over time from only one perspective, such as “climate change,” the “born gay” assumption, or the theory of evolution.

4. Think for yourself.
Human beings are susceptible to jumping on bandwagons or joining teams to meet social needs, but this makes us vulnerable to manipulation by people who form or control teams to serve their own agenda (i.e, the R’s and D’s). Beware of any group, system or institution that requires or expects you to substitute their conclusions for your own, or to adopt a “team” position on a whole slate of issues, and shuns or denigrates you for disagreeing on one or more items. (E.g., many liberals recognize an essential natural order in the eco-systems of living things but are forbidden from acknowledging the natural family as humanity’s ecosystem because “gay rights” is a “must-embrace” leftist goal.)

5. See the good and bad on both sides.
Remember that the devil works both sides of the street, and it serves his goals if we evaluate people by the team they’re on, not their character or the rationality of their arguments. If truth is our standard and filter, we’ll judge things and people fairly and thereby lessen the “us vs. them” stupidity that makes us so easy to manipulate in elections and other cultural conflicts.


6. Restore critical thinking.
The goal of the elites has always been to “dumb down” Americans to make us easier to deceive and control. Thus liberal terminology always avoids simple definitions and distinct boundaries, especially when used in social policy or laws (e.g., “homophobia”: a nonsense word that implies all disapproval is an anxiety disorder). We can defeat the elites by mastering critical thinking skills and restoring true literacy that employs only clearly defined words in unambiguous sentences conveying true and trustworthy knowledge.

7. Reclaim objectivity.
The elites always obscure the distinction between objective truth and subjective opinion, and between hard science (which is never contradictory to biblical truth, properly understood) and “soft science” (which can easily be manipulated to serve a hidden agenda). We must always promote and defend objective truth and contrast it with the subjective opinions and belief systems of the often-fraudulent “soft sciences” that have been driving our social policies for decades.

8. Challenge the know-it-alls.
The elites on both sides invariably assume an attitude of moral and intellectual superiority. It’s easy to expose their errors by practicing the Socratic Method of interrogation. Just ask 1) “What do you mean by that?” (i.e., define your terms), and 2) “How do you know that’s true?” (i.e., what is your source of authority). You don’t have to be an expert on any given topic to take command of the discussion and expose liberal illogic and it’s lack of sound presuppositions.

9. Avoid the tar-babies.
Remember that you can’t persuade a true-believer leftist with fact and logic. Intellectually, most of them embrace a closed-loop Cultural Marxist narrative similar to paranoid schizophrenia. If someone proves himself incapable of recognizing self-evident truths (such as denying the humanity of an unborn baby while looking at an advanced stage ultrasound image), disengage immediately. Conservative populists should largely ignore the left and their delusions and just focus on taking the seats of power away from them.

10. Be an army of one.
Paradoxically, populism is a movement of individualists whose common denominator is the U.S. Constitution. Unlike our cultural opponents who hold the hive-mind mentality of big-government statists, our true strength isn’t in our numbers, but the rightness of our cause. We don’t need to wait for marching orders from Donald Trump or any other perceived leaders; we can act on our own or in small groups on the inherent authority granted to us by God and affirmed by the founders. The quicker we all decide just to do that, the quicker we can restore this republic. (I figure we’ve got about a two-year window.)
