The meme, “You Can’t Fix Stupid” comes to mind when one sees groups that Islamists target for either oppression or death supporting the very ideology that persecutes/kills them.

Much has been written regarding clueless leftist, gay rights and women’s groups support of Islamism. Are all or some of these supporters just useful idiots, self haters, or underground elitists pushing for a totalitarian system which would ensure their control? Perhaps all of the above?

In this post, I choose largely to bash duncish women, and I truly wonder if they are real women or paid actors. Do they actually believe that they deserve to be viciously raped, mutilated and chopped to pieces just because they are kafirs (non-Muslim). Sorry ladies, that is precisely what you are supporting when you team up with Islamists.

The January 21 Women’s March on Washington was organized by Islamist apologist and activist Linda Sarsour, a supporter of shariah law.
Hate monger Sarsour is a real piece of work and tweeted:

“Brigitte Gabriel=Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking 4 an a$$ whippin’. I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women.”

How’s that for tolerance, love, and superior intellect?

For further insight on the lovely Ms Sarsour, go here to find some real gems.

Let’s meet Rasmea Yousef Odeh, one of the co-authors of the “militant” manifesto behind the above nationwide event, who is a convicted Palestinian terrorist .

Odeh was convicted in Israel in 1970 for being involved in two fatal bombings. Odeh spent 10 years in jail before she was released in a prisoner exchange in 1980.

She moved to the U.S. by omitting her terror conviction on her immigration papers and served as the associate director of the Arab American Action Network in Chicago and later as an ObamaCare navigator. In 2014, she was convicted in the U.S. for concealing her past and thus illegally obtaining U.S. citizenship.

After claiming she forgot about her conviction and imprisonment in Israel due to post traumatic stress disorder, she was awarded a new trial which is currently pending. more

Awarded a new trial while continuing her “activities”? Really?

In His article, Jamie Glasov discusses The Left’s Embrace of Islamic Rape
In response to this new horrifying European reality, in which if you are a kuffar female who is raped it means you asked for it, we are running below Jamie Glazov’s article “How Vittorio Arrigoni Went to Gaza Hoping to Die” from PJMedia’s April 18, 2011 issue. The article unveils the death wish in the heart of the Left and in the impulses of its fellow travelers. In so doing, it crystallizes the pathological mindset of the progressive elites running Western Europe today and why they have created the toxic and suicidal circumstances in which their own women are now victims of mass sexual assaults by followers of a totalitarian and misogynist ideology — and why they, the elites, are shaming the victims and taking the side of the perpetrators. continue

The Hijab and the Regressive Left’s Absurd Campaign to Betray Freethinking Women
It should shock true progressives that the hijab’s media champions are, in the majority, non-Muslim women residing in the West, working for secular publications, and enjoying the protections afforded by a secular legal environment: no one is going to force them into a hijab, or threaten or murder them if they refuse to wear it. They may well hold that they are promoting the right of a mostly nonwhite minority to dress as they please and follow the faith of their choosing, but in fact they are traducing freethinking women in this same minority — and, what’s worse, with the implicit backing of thugs, acid-throwers, and assassins. Their campaign reeks of betrayal of the most craven kind — inadvertent though it may be. much more here

In the article Dear Liberals: Your Hypocrisy on Islam is Most Staggering of All… Steven Crowder and Courtney Kirchoff discuss the issue.
Dear Cowering, Leftist Appeasers,
Seriously, what is it with you? Thinking about this particular affinity makes me scratch my head bald. At the very least, to thinning of Trump-like proportions. Over here in the United States, you leftists harp on about gay rights, gay wedding cakes, how horrible Christians are for disagreeing with baking gay wedding cakes, transexual men getting women’s awards; then comes feminism with its man-spreading, mansplaining, the constant complaining about the mythical pay gap. It gets exhausting. When you’re not whining about transgender bathrooms you’re whining about women’s access to birth control. But when it comes to Islam, the most intolerant of the “intolerant,” you’re all in…

You leftists turned two blind eyes to the violent behavior of Islam, focusing instead on the faux controversies like Mizzou, #BlackLivesMatter and the infamous poop swastika. The media, with support from leftists as high up as Obama the Great, swiftly joined the raging chorus of “racism” and “inequality.” Well, one does. The media happily took up the mantel of these college crybabies. The victims of Islam who have zero free speech and zero right to protest anything? Not so much. more

Here’s a real kicker:
Leaving Islam in North America
Apostates can face death threats from Muslims and scorn from the left. Leaving Islam can be notoriously difficult in many Muslim-majority countries. Certain countries, such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia, have laws that make apostasy an offense punishable by death. In others where apostasy is not explicitly criminalized, accused individuals can still face charges through religious courts. Prosecution at the hands of the judicial system, however, is relatively rare. The main costs that apostates face come from family members and others in the community.

A 2013 PEW study found widespread support for the death penalty for leaving Islam in many countries. In several of them, including Egypt, Jordan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, the majority of Muslims held this view… 

While apostates are relatively much better off in the U.S. and Canada, leaving the religion does not come without its challenges even here. continue

When things do not make sense one does not have all of the facts.

There must be more than sheer ignorance or insanity behind this suicidal support for Islamism in the West.

We do not have all of the facts. Period!

You need to report? Go Here ~> National Association to Protect Children

Last November, I entered a post entitled Pedophilia–Child Abuse On Steroids.

Since the subject has resurfaced, I am again taking up the cudgels on this atrocity.

Egad!

New York Times Op-Ed Proclaims That Pedophilia Is ‘A Disorder, Not A Crime’

Okay, so you’re trying to figure out what would cause a person to commit such a disgusting and perverted crime – if it’s a mental disorder or something that can be prevented. That’s commendable on a certain level, I suppose.

But WHY is this an either/or scenario? WHY can’t we call it a crime, as well as a mental disorder? (Other than it hurts these special snowflakes FEEEEEELINGS?) WHY are you trying to turn someone’s horrifying actions into scenario where the perpetrator is the victim, rather than, you know, the ACTUAL VICTIM is the victim?

How do you think child victims of pedophilia feel, seeing their attackers being portrayed as these poor, pitiful creatures who had no choice but to turn to child molestation? It’s like “Oh, sorry that happened to you. But we need to UNDERSTAAAAAAAAND why they did that!”  The insanity continues

The Milo flap is an excellent diversion regarding the following:

Why the MSM Is Ignoring Trump’s Sex Trafficking Busts

There have been a staggering 1,500-plus arrests in one short month; compare that to less than 400 sex trafficking-related arrests in 2014 according to the FBI. It’s been clear to me for awhile that Trump would make human trafficking a top priority. On October 8, 2012, Trump tweeted:

“Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents – fast trial, death penalty.”

My suspicions were confirmed on Feb. 23 when Trump gave a press conference from the White House addressing how human trafficking is a “dire problem” domestically and internationally…Trump’s press conference was barely a blip in the mainstream media and the massive arrests have been almost completely ignored by the MSM altogether…

As the MSM has ignored these historical arrests, they have zeroed in on casting conservative icon Milo Yiannopoulos as a monster. They claim he supports pedophilia based on comments he made in a video years ago*. The reality is Milo was a victim of child sex abuse, and although he did joke about his abuse in an interview, he in no way promotes pedophilia. The opposite is true, and he addressed this controversy head on in a press conference. Not only is it normal for sex abuse victims to make light of their abuse as a coping mechanism, Milo has personally taken down and exposed pedophiles in his columns over the years. However, the mainstream media and the left ignored this information and demonized Milo. The irony of all this is that the left and MSM have been the biggest proponents of pedophilia.  continue

Just as in Trump’s case with his remarks to Billy Bush, the enemy within dug up an old tape and played it for all it was worth in order to bring Milo down. Remember, they used the same playbook to marginalize Sarah Palin when it was obvious that she was connecting with the voters. The false meme “I can see Russia From My house”, which she never said, became gospel.

Interesting discussion:

Douglas Todd: Pedophilia sets off alarms. Here are the facts

Vancouver psychologist Anton Schweighofer, partly through his forensic work with Correctional Services Canada, has specialized in the prevention of sexual violence, principally by working with people who have pedophilic impulses.Arlen Redekop / Vancouver Sun

Spotlight. Mystic River. Broadchurch. The Hunt. Eyes Wide Shut. The Girl Next Door. Deliver us From Evil. Pretty Baby. Accused. Happiness. The Boys of St. Vincent. The People Next Door. Game of Thrones. The Celebration. The Woodsman.

These are some of the hundreds of movies and TV series that have revolved around the disturbing subject of child sexual abuse.

Until the 1960s, the molestation of minors was a reality that existed largely under the radar.

But since then the West has become painfully aware of this form of sexual abuse through waves of news reports, including this week’s media storm over the resignation of Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos amid a backlash over comments he made that appeared to condone sex with 13-year-olds.

It turns out what we don’t know about pedophilia could hurt us as a society. We may be missing opportunities to prevent further abuse... continue

Pizza-gate California: 474 Arrested in Massive Child Pedophilia Sting

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has announced 474 pedophiles have been arrested and 55 victims have been rescued in a MASSIVE Southern California Child Trafficking sting dubbed “Operation Reclaim and Rebuild”…

Hundreds of people were arrested and dozens of sexually exploited children and adult victims were rescued across California during a statewide operation to combat human trafficking, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday.

More than 30 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and task forces, including the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force, participated in the third annual “Operation Reclaim and Rebuild” enforcement operation, according to a sheriff’s news release. entire post

Head of U. Texas – Pan American Young Democrats is convicted child sex offender

Campus Reform offers a very disturbing report about the background of the head of a prominent student group at one Texas university.

Bill “Billy” Wayne Johnson, who is listed on the school’s official website as the primary contact for the student organization, was registered as a sex offender in April of 2010, according to Texas DPS SEX Offender registry.

According to state records, Johnson was convicted of first degree aggravated sexual assault of a child on April 28, 2003, and spent nearly three years in the Garza West Texas Department of Criminal Justice for the offense, from July 16, 2003 through April 12, 2006.

Sexual Assault of a Child is aggravated if the child is under 14 years of age, if a deadly weapon is used or a serious bodily injury is threatened, according to Texas Penal Code Sec. 22.021.

Those records include multiple photos of Johnson, which match photos on his Facebook and Twitter accounts, and describe him as a 211 pound white male with “BLOND STRAWBERRY” hair who attends UTPA. The arrest report also lists a number of aliases and indicates he was required to register annually. more

While the Democrats are doing everything possible short of going through the Trump Towers garbage bins to “get the goods on Trump”, they have some odorous trash of their own.

And yes, the GOP is certainly not a collection of Angels. However, they have yet to master the art of making dirty tricks and outright lies overshadow the truth to the point that falsehood becomes reality in the minds of the public. However, the Democrats have now engaged in over reach and the citizenry is awakening to their lies and to the MSM  purveyors of such.

Let us examine just a few of the superabundant naughty actions by the party of self righteous indignation over Trump’s victory:

DEAR CNN: Here’s A CHILLING NEW Scandal Exposing Democrats – Would THIS Be ‘News?’
HEY CNN! You’ve been LOOKING for a ‘foreign hacking’ story! Jackpot!

Why is it that so many of the highest-ranking Democrats have SO much scandal swirling around them?

Obama’s old Campaign manager just got a $90k fine for illegally lobbying … Rahm Emmanuel.

Brazile (DNC chair) gave Hillary advanced notice of the questions when she worked with CNN.

DWS (DNC chair before her) worked to help Hillary and hurt Bernie… before joining Hillary’s campaign team.

And now… after all the madness we saw with the private server issues. After all the allegations of HACKING! By RUSSIA! We are seeing yet ANOTHER story involving private servers, money and foreign influence.

Maybe if we tell CNN that Russia was involved somehow, they might take an interest in the story.

Let’s put it in terms simple enough that even Don Lemon could understand. Men who are NOW under criminal investigation have had IT access to highly-sensitive government documents for about a decade. Also, they are from Pakistan. This wouldn’t matter much, except that there is a criminal investigation. And foreign money involved. And unauthorized duplication of files… .

…..Investigators found that congressional information was being copied to an off-site server and they suspect the brothers of improperly accessing information and stealing congressional property. Chiefs of staff for the employing Democrats were notified Feb. 2. —DailyCaller

So the same Debbie Wasserman-Schultz that finger-waves about Russia and hacking was HERSELF employing men who were a threat to the security of our information. And when this came to light, CONTINUED to employ one of them on her staff.With all the scandals she’s been a personal witness to, (if not an actual participant in) at what point does she become complicit? Or at least start to lose her own security clearances? continue

 More Crooked Democrats: Police Raid Offices of Indiana Voter Registration Project in Voter Fraud Case by Jim Holt Gateway Pundit
Indiana police raided the offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project in north Indianapolis on Tuesday in a growing voter fraud case.

It is not clear who established or funded the Indiana Voter Registration Project. However, the group released a statement through spokeswoman Christy Setzer, whose PR firm’s website says she has worked as a Democratic strategist for the presidential campaigns of Al Gore, Howard Dean and Chris Dodd.

USA Today reported: Indiana State Police investigators on Tuesday searched a voter registration agency on Indianapolis’ north side as they look into a voter fraud case that spans nine counties.

The investigation began in late August when police learned of the filing of fraudulent voter registration forms in Marion and Hendricks counties.

The investigation has expanded from Marion and Hendricks counties to include Allen, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Lake and Madison counties, according to a statement from State Police.

Police said the growing number of involved counties leads investigators to believe that the number of fraudulent records might be in the hundreds.

The possible fraudulent information is a combination of fake names, addresses and dates of birth with real information.

As part of the expanded investigation, State Police detectives served a search warrant for the business offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project in the 2400 block of North Meridian Street. source

Amazingly,
First on CNN: Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe under federal investigation for campaign contributions
Washington (CNN)Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department’s public integrity unit, U.S. officials briefed on the probe say.

The investigation dates to at least last year and has focused, at least in part, on whether donations to his gubernatorial campaign violated the law, the officials said.

McAuliffe wasn’t notified by investigators that he is a target of the probe, according to the officials.

“The Governor will certainly cooperate with the government if he is contacted about it,” said Marc Elias, attorney for McAuliffe campaign, in a statement to CNN.

As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe’s time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton. more

Congressional Black Corruption by Michelle Malkin July 13, 2016 12:00 AM @michellemalkin
Too many black leaders would rather break the law to line their pockets than take care of their constituents.

We’re naming names. If Black Lives Matter, then why have entrenched members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent more time enriching themselves than taking care of their neglected constituents?

Too many social-justice protesters are busy throwing shade, rocks, bottles, concrete blocks, and vicious death threats at police officers of all colors who are trying to keep the peace. 

Instead of moaning about “#WhitePrivilege,” I invite radical racial identity warriors to join me in taking on the black political elites selling out their people. Help expose the most crooked members of the caucus of Congressional Black Corruption:

Corrine Brown: This twelve-term Democrat from Florida received a 24-count federal indictment last week while her Congressional Black Caucus colleagues tried to drown out the news with diversionary gun-control theatrics….

Chaka Fattah: This eleven-term Pennsylvania Democrat was convicted in late June on 23 charges of racketeering, money laundering, and fraud, along with four other co-defendants. His son was sentenced earlier this year to a five-year prison term after being found guilty of 22 counts of separate federal bank- and tax-fraud charges related to his misuse of business loans and federal education contracts to pay for designer clothes, massive bar tabs, and luxury cars. Fattah the Elder’s crimes are tied to schemes to repay an illegal $1 million campaign loan. Like his rotten apple of a son, Fattah siphoned off federal grant money and nonprofit funds (including donations to his educational foundation — sound familiar?) to pay off political consultants…. The con artists inside your own communities are your own worst enemies.

Eddie Bernice Johnson: This twelve-term Democrat from Dallas similarly helped steer thousands of dollars in Congressional Black Caucus Foundation college scholarships to four family members and two of her top aide’s children, in violation of the nonprofit’s rules.

Maxine Waters: This 13-term Beltway swamp queen from California and past chair of the Congressional Black Caucus walked away with a slap on the wrist from the toothless House Ethics Committee in 2012 after being charged with multiple ethics violations related to her meddling in minority-owned OneUnited Bank. The banks’ executives donated $12,500 to Mad Maxine’s congressional campaigns. Her husband, Sidney Williams, was an investor in one of the banks that merged into OneUnited….

Alcee Hastings, the twelve-term Florida corruptocrat impeached by a federal judge in 1989 for making false statements and producing false documents in a 1983 criminal trial accusing him of seeking a $150,000 bribe. He went on to win a seat in Congress in 1992 and used his position to enrich his various lady friends – he paid one girlfriend-turned-congressional-deputy-district-director more than half a million dollars in salary, and paid another female “staff assistant” to accompany him on his endless junkets abroad… More Democrats Democrats Threaten to Eat Their Own Partisan Lines Stay Fixed amid Trump Turmoil New Jersey Democrats: We Pledge To Punish Your Employer! Those few are just the start. ..

There’s Texas’s Sheila Jackson Lee and the Medicare fraud racket involving a local hospital in her district; 

Greg Meeks and his $400,000 earmark for a fake health clinic in New York City and Caribbean resort jaunts underwritten by convicted financier Allen Stanford;

 and Wisconsin’s Gwen Moore and her lavishly paid friends and family…

And, of course, the ethics violations, shady business deals, and tax troubles from New York’s Charlie Rangel deserve their own encyclopedia. 

My message for BLM? Put down your black-power fists and weapons. Give a rest to the “#BlueLivesMurder” and “Fry ’em up like bacon” chants…

Aim your outrage at self-serving black leaders and their abject failure to improve black people’s lives. —More on each of the above here

And last but not least, what would a discussion of Democrat corruption be without the Clintons. The write up From Whitewater to Benghazi: A Clinton-Scandal Primer by David A Graham in the Atlantic is indeed an extensive work with lots of details and links. Enjoy (or be disgusted by) the read. He discusses the following in detail:

The Clintons’ Private Email Server
Clinton’s State Department Emails
Benghazi
Conflicts of Interest in Foggy Bottom
Sidney Blumenthal
The Speeches
The Clinton Foundation
The Bad Old Days

Although many are well aware of some if not much of what is discussed, there is a definite possibility that many heretofore unknown nuggets and gems to the reader will be revealed.

The Clintons epitomized the corrupt underbelly of the parasitic insider Washington DC elitist club.

It is pure outrage that this condition exists. Is it any wonder that Trump’s phrase “Drain The Swamp” instantly caught on?

February 20, 2017 Rinkeby district in Stockholm, Sweden

Never let it be said that people can learn from the mistakes of others. Soft Jihad is deadlier than the violent form because it is soothing, reassuring, and undetectable until a certain infiltration point is reached.

Unfortunately, the Western mind has difficulty in coping with the fact that Islamism is a militant ideology cloaked in religion. It may not have started out that way, but Islamists believe in and work for the Caliphate.

Here is an excellent discussion of the Quran of Mecca and the Quran of Medina and the difference between the two. It will either clarify or further confuse the reader as to how they can be reconciled.

And yes, migrants in Sweden unwittingly came to Trump’s rescue regarding his statements on the “difficulties” they are presenting to that nation. videos.

The following are excerpts from the highlighted posts. Some contain videos and all contain links expanding on their subject.

Sweden’s PM Condemns Trump For ‘Migrant Violence’ CLAIM
Swedish Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, held a press conference and shot back at President Trump for his remarks regarding the Scandanavian country.
Löfven denied that there were problems due to mass immigration and lack of integration, and leveled a shot directed at President Trump chastising him to ensure that he is ‘using facts correctly’ and ‘verifying information’.
Watch the Swedish Prime Minister denial just hours before the riots broke out here

Right on cue! Immigrant riots break out in Sweden  Ann Corcoran  gives an excellent discussion as to the ongoing reality that is now Sweden.

The clashes come days after US President Donald Trump suggested that immigrants in Sweden were to blame for an increase in crime across the country.

In recent years, Sweden has taken in more refugees per capita than any other European country, which has fueled tensions and caused a rise in anti-immigrant sentiment.

In 2013, large scale riots flared for a week in the Swedish capital, with gangs setting fire to schools and a police station.

In 2015, more than 160,000 people — many from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan — arrived in Sweden seeking asylum.
The country granted asylum to 101,025 refugees — about 1% of the total population — from 2012 to 2015.

Tucker Carlson Interviewed film maker Ami Horowitz who defended his film on the matter.
It turns out, Trump was basing his claims on a segment from the Tucker Carlson show in which filmmaker Ami Horowitz described a documentary project on the subject. Ami returned to the show last night and after Tucker replayed the clip, Horowitz backed up his project with numbers directly from the Swedish government.

“Between 2012 and 2016 the murder rate [in Sweden] is up almost 70 percent,” Horowitz told “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” citing the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. “Rape between 2007 and 2015 is up a similar number, almost 70 percent. These are their statistics, not my statistics.”

Later in the program, Tucker spoke with Anne-Sophie Naslund, the U.S. correspondent for the Swedish newspaper “Expressen” about the fact that in Sweden, people can face investigation and even jail for saying the wrong thing.

Muslim Group Meets with U.S. 100 Congressmen  discusses the following:
What should worry Americans is that 100 Congressmen would listen to yet another Muslim group when the entire world has been battling Islamic terror groups non-stop for more than 15 years!

It’s been said before of this particular group of Muslims:

These “moderate” Muslims smear, defame and attack counter jihadists…They provide essential cover for the global jihad.

The VOA propaganda piece indicates that continues to be true.
As we’ve noted before, there are only about 15,000 Ahmadiyya Muslims in the U.S. yet they have their own Muslim caucus on Capitol Hill. Note the members come election time. 

Vigilance with awareness is our only defense. Employ both.

Sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

 There is much work to do for this new administration.   Everyone expected that snowflakes and cupcakes would emerge to protest and grieve over Hillary’s loss.  They did and gloriously so to the point of drawing ridicule rather than sympathy.

Then, of course we had the usual Soros funded useful idiots blocking traffic, breaking windows, assaulting trump supporters, etc. All attention was being focused on them, perhaps by design so as to deflect from Obama’s underground, underhanded activities.  He was creating a more sinister operation—that of a shadow government meant solely to discredit and remove Trump. A few had sounded the clarion of such seditious activity in the making, but it had not become so blatantly obvious until recently.

The usual leftist arrogance did not take into account that the entire American public was not as stupid as had been portrayed. The clear mined citizenry, who dwell in reality land, can see through the curtain of lies by the politicians, leftist talking heads, and the MSM.  They continue to support Trump’s agenda, which is their own. They want America back. Those who want America to return to the Constitution and cherish The Bill of Rights are coming into action by organizing several pro Trump demonstrations in March.

That is a start, but unfortunately, it will probably take much more.The left is relentless and dangerous, and as Trump stated on the campaign trail, will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.

Those who are funding and driving this obviously seditious movement must be arrested, tried and given the proper penalty. Once the head of the snake is cut off it will eventually die. However, its directionless body will continue to thrash until its final death.  Rest assured the dead snake’s spawn will lay low and arise when the opportunity presents itself.

Obama’s hatred of America is most obvious to many. Unfortunately, many useful idiots are all too willing to crown him the Messiah. Those of us who see through him just want to crown him. His connections are many and for an excellent insight and background on this man, go here.

Excerpts from the the articles below address the issues raised above.

Let’s take a look at some of his present activities:
On January 7, 2017, Daniel Greenfield published the article Obama Quietly Hiring New OFA Staff to Fight Trump.  in which he also referenced that back in November he had written Obama was plotting to use OFA to set the agenda. and that that he just might get away with it. Greenfield’s articles were most prescient and affirmed what many believed–Obama had no intention of going into the night quietly. more

Here are a few links  specifying what OFA means to recruits:

Get Updates on OFA Training Programs“Organizing for Action is training the next generation of progressive organizers as they work on important issues across the country. OFA’s hands-on fellowship and training programs provide the skills and tools necessary to empower grassroots organizers to make a difference in their communities.” more

Your voice can change a room.
OFA is committed to mobilizing and training the next generation of progressive organizers and leaders, because real, lasting change doesn’t just happen on its own—it requires a program, it requires organizing, and it requires people like you.
With grassroots chapters in neighborhoods across the country, OFA volunteers are building this movement from the ground up, person to person, community by community—because democracy isn’t a spectator sport. more

Take a deep breath. Then take action.It’s troubling to see years of progress and hard work on the line, but here’s how community organizers get through it: We take action.
Keep in mind that progress never comes served on a silver platter; we’ve always had to work for it. From marriage equality to climate change to health care reform, it’s taken years—sometimes decades—of sustained effort from a broad base of citizens to bring these issues to the forefront and persuade decision-makers to move us forward. So in that sense, this new political climate is no different. We’ve been here before. more

All of the above sounds innocuous, but make no mistake these are training camps for upending the American way–either by persuasion or by insurrection.

A financial coup for OFA:
Obama RELAUNCHES Efforts to “Fundamentally Change America”!
by Hardworking1 
While researching and writing my article last week about organizations like Black Lives Matter (BLM) getting a tax exempt IRS 501(c)3 designation I discovered that the Obama Administration went even farther than that with some liberal/progressive organization’s tax exempt designations!  Obama’s “Organizing for Action” (OFA) got a 501(c)4 designation, This is even more “troubling” than BLM getting the tax exempt designation, 501(c)3, because the OFA tax exempt designation 501(c)4 allows organizations to “engage in substantial lobbying activities”!  …

Why did I say that OFA having this tax exempt designation is “troubling”?  All you have to do is look at OFA’s history to answer that question. OFA is an organization that evolved out of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, which evolved out of “Organizing for America”, which was part of Obama’s 2008 election campaign. OFA was formed and is operated by former Obama campaign and administration staff. It is an organization whose “Mission Statement” is to fulfill Obama’s dream of “Fundamentally Changing America”, which  is to ultimately make America part of George Soros’ ”one world order”.

How did a group like OFA get a tax exempt designation like this?  As you can see from the information above there is ample opportunity for racist and corrupt IRS or DOJ personnel to make a BIASED DECISION regarding a group’s eligibility for tax exempt designation, or if they can keep their tax exempt designation if they already have one. more

WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 17 – “Anti-government protesters seek to disrupt the work of our nation’s elected officials on a scale never seen before,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.  “And former President Obama says he approves,”

In fact, Weber notes, 10 days after he left office Mr. Obama’s spokesman issued a statement saying, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,”

Since early 2016 (according to globalists and the mainstream publications featuring their opinions), there has been a rising tide of nationalists and “populists” in western nations.  This sudden surge in “populism” is inexorably tied to the Brexit movement and the support for candidates like Donald Trump.  Populism will overrun the existing “stability” of globalism and cause severe economic crisis in numerous countries.  It finds its roots in the “less educated” portions of the population, as well as in older generations that think they have something to lose if globalism succeeds.  It is also driven by an “irrational fear” of economic change, global interdependence and multiculturalism.  Populists are predominantly naive and desperate for “strongmen” leaders to fight for them.  Some of them are motivated by self interest, while others are motivated by racism.

Traitors within: 
In her article  Flynn, Trump, and Countering The Four Horsemen of the Liberal Apocalypse, Susan Swift of Politichicks discusses the political assassination of Flynn by the shadow government set up by Trump’s predecessor.

Eli Lake called it a political assassination.  The New York Times steadfastly maintains there is “no evidence” that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians to influence the election.  But that didn’t stop the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse from taking down General Micheal Flynn.

Who are the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse? The Media, the Establishment RINOs, Elected Democrats, and Obama’s shadowy unelected bureaucrat operatives embedded within the DeepState.   These Four Horsemen continue to work in coordination to weaken and delegitimize President Trump’s election triumph over of Hillary Clinton.  Former President Barrack Obama appears to be leading the Horsemen’s charge.

Author Ed Klein told Pete Hegseth on Fox and Friends Weekend in December that former President “Barack Obama is setting up a shadow government in Washington DC to undermine President Trump after Inauguration Day.”

A very gloomy view of what is to come:
Paul Craig Roberts writes    “The effort of Americans to bring govt back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state”Former National Security Agency (NSA) spy John Schindler tweeted on Twitter that a senior intelligence community colleague sent him an email stating that the deep state had declared nuclear war on Trump and that “He will die in jail.”
It is possible that this will be the case…

Those at work overturning the 2016 presidential election are so confident of their success that they publicly declare their preference for coup over democracy. The Zionist neoconservative warmonger Bill Kristol has expressed his preference for a deep state coup over democratically elected President Trump.

The effort of the American people to bring government back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state.

Chris Hedges argument that revolution is the only way that Americans can reclaim their country continues to gain credibility.

The words that doomed Trump when he declared war before he had his army assembled:
“There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.”

Bryan Dean Wright pens   I’m a Democrat (and ex-CIA) but the spies plotting against Trump are out of control.
Over the past few months, America has lurched from partisan warfare to the cliffs of an existential crisis.

Multiple reports show that my former colleagues in the intelligence community have decided that they must leak or withhold classified information due to unsettling connections between President Trump and the Russian Government.

Said an intelligence officer: “I know what’s best for foreign policy and national security… And I’m going to act on that.”

Some of us might applaud this man, including a few of my fellow Democrats. In their minds, this is a case of Mr. Smith Goes to Langley to do battle against a corrupt President Trump.

One small problem. The intelligence officer quoted above was actually Aldrich Ames, a CIA traitor whose crime of treason in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in the compromise of more than 100 assets. Many were tortured and executed as a result.

Ames’ flawed logic is eerily similar to that of his present-day colleagues who are engaged in a shadow war with their commander in chief. They, too, have decided that their superior judgment is more important than following the law.   continue

The public catching on is this nation’s only hope:
Again, Daniel Greenfield:   Why the Media’s Trump Lie Machine is Failing
Every five minutes the many mouths of the media broadcast, type, post and shriek that President Donald J. Trump is a liar. After months of this treatment, more voters find him truthful than them.
49% of voters believe that Trump and his people are telling the truth. Only 39% believe that the media is.

The media’s war on President Trump isn’t hurting him. It is destroying the media’s own credibility.

After Trump’s win, the media came to the conclusion that its biased attacks on him had been too subtle and understated to connect with the “dumb” voters. So it decided to be far more overt about its smears.

The New York Times, which used to be the best at disguising its biases in the omnipotent voice of professional journalism, called President Trump a liar in its headlines.  The media cheered this descent into naked partisanship by the paper of record. But it didn’t hurt Trump. It hurt the Times.

Headlines blasting President Trump as a “liar” are easy enough to find on the Internet. The New York Times derives much of its influence from its appearance of serious professionalism.  Calling Trump names made it hard to distinguish the New York Times from the Huffington Post. …
Truth is not who you pretend to be. It’s who you are…

…The media wanted the authority to determining who was lying without the responsibility of telling the truth. As the media made its partisan bias more obvious, it lost the credibility it needed. The more the media called President Trump a liar, the more the public believed that the media was lying.

Patriots, be prepared. Events can go many different ways, all out civil war, a faux peace, or a leftist temporary retreat waiting for another opportunity.  Much depends not only upon the Trump administration’s ability to manage the chaos, but upon the citizens who support him as well.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is becoming increasingly apparent and more widely recognized. However, the simply unhinged cannot be confused with the paid rent a mobs, and the professionally trained OFA “protesters. The unhinged simply cannot accept reality. The paid mobs are Soros’ useful idiots, but the OFA pros are truly seditious. That is another discussion which will be forthcoming.

The paragraph below is an excerpt from the following article which is spot on and worth the read.

Excerpt:
So, Trump Derangement Syndrome actually is a thing. Additionally, it also shows the Left’s appalling inability to accept the two facts: 1) Trump is president; 2) Hillary Clinton was a terrible, dishonest, inauthentic, and untrustworthy candidate who fostered her own demise through her reckless decisions, namely an unapproved and unsecure email server, from which she conducted all of her official business as secretary of state. The discovery and serial lies told by her campaign to explain this trip up only rehashed old criticisms about her from the 1990s, killed her numbers on character issues, which—coupled with the allegations unethical quid-pro-quo dealings at the Clinton Foundation—led to her defeat. Oh, and ignoring tens of millions of white working class voters, who flocked to Trump, also wasn’t the best decision. It wasn’t the Russians who defeated Clinton, fellow liberals. It was Lady Macbeth herself

WOW! NYT: Losing The Presidential Election Drove Democrats To Start Believing In Conspiracy Theories (Or How Trump Derangement Syndrome Is Real)  
Matt Vespaby Matt Vespa
Conservatives and right-leaning voters are often the subject of ridicule concerning the peddling of conspiracy theories. The deluge of fake news stories has been a subject of discussion after Hillary Clinton’s shocking loss to Donald Trump. President Trump has used the phrase to go after news organizations that have gone off the reservation. Stories about the MLK Jr. bust being removed from the Oval Office, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin tossing an old lady out of her home over 27¢, and Trump renaming black history month all have something in common. They’re fake news stories.
But as Democrats lick their wounds, ready more dumpsters to set on fire, and whine incessantly about their candidate getting beat, they too have clung to conspiracy theories for comfort. The Democratic Party is out of power in Washington, 69/99 state legislatures are under GOP control, and two-thirds of the governorships are Republicans as well. In the last eight years, over 1,000 Democratic congressional, state legislature and governor seats have been lost to Republicans. I would need crazy stuff to help me cope too I guess—and for these insufferable politically correct snowflakes, it seems conspiratorial drivel is their source of solace. Republicans aren’t immune to it. The New York Times reported on a study, which says, shocker—the losing side of an election tends to drift more to the insane when it comes to news consumption.

The main entrée for the Left is that Russia hacked the election. The Kremlin did deploy a prolonged and sustained propaganda campaign, which saw state-funded media outlets and trolls flood social media with insane stories, but it didn’t play a pivotal role in the election. Moreover, the Clinton campaign accepted the result; the Obama White House viewed the results as a reflection of the will of the people, and the Department of Homeland Security said that no spikes in malicious cyber activity were seen on election night. Still, a majority of Democrats polled last month said that Russia hacked the election results. A social media propaganda deluge and messing with vote tallies are different things, with the former certainly not being a hack. So, to be clear again—Russia did not hack the election (which is also virtually impossible). Brendan Nyhan had more (via NYT) [emphasis mine]:

…since the election, there has been a noticeable increase in the flow of dubious and unsupported claims among liberals. One widely circulated post on Medium portrayed the Trump administration’s fumbling rollout of a travel ban in late January as an elaborate “trial balloon for a coup d’état.” Brooke Binkowski, managing editor at the rumor-tracking site Snopes, recently told The Atlantic that she has been seeing more false reports aimed at liberals or from liberal sources — “a lot of dubious news, a lot of wishful-thinking-type stuff.”

Even some prominent liberals like Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton, seem open to conspiracy theories of the sort typically espoused by figures like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck. (After the recent violent demonstration at the University of California at Berkeley, Mr. Reich raised the possibility that the far right “was in cahoots” with the agitators, writing a blog post titled “A Yiannopoulos, Bannon, Trump Plot to Control American Universities?”)

A simple explanation for this shift is that misperceptions often focus on the president and are most commonly held by members of the other party. Just as Republicans disproportionately endorsed prominent misperceptions during the Obama years (like the birther and death panel myths), Democrats are now the opposition partisans especially likely to fall victim to dubious claims about the Trump administration.

To evaluate this conjecture, the political scientists Christina Farhart, Joanne Miller and Kyle Saunders, who study conspiracy theory belief, compared how Democrats and Republicans changed in their responses to a conspiracy predispositions scale created by Mr. Uscinski and his co-authors.

In total, the percentage of Democrats who agreed on average with the conspiracy claims in the scale increased from 27 percent before the election to 32 percent afterward. By contrast, Republicans’ willingness to endorse conspiratorial claims declined after the election over all and for three of the four statements, pushing down the percentage of Republicans who agreed on average with the statements from 28 percent to 19 percent.

In other words, losing the presidential election made Democrats more likely to blame secret conspiracies for the state of the world, while making Republicans less willing to indulge these sorts of claims. If you don’t believe me, just compare your social media news feeds with what you saw during the campaign — or ask yourself who you think is behind the news you are seeing.Nyhan added that the predispositions that respondents were asked to evaluate in the study were:

  1. Much of our lives are being controlled by plots hatched in secret places.
  2. Even though we live in a democracy, a few people will always run things anyway.
  3. The people who really “run” the country are not known to the voters.
  4. Big events like wars, economic recessions and the outcomes of elections are controlled by small groups of people who are working in secret against the rest of us.

So, Trump Derangement Syndrome actually is a thing. Additionally, it also shows the Left’s appalling inability to accept the two facts: 1) Trump is president; 2) Hillary Clinton was a terrible, dishonest, inauthentic, and untrustworthy candidate who fostered her own demise through her reckless decisions, namely an unapproved and unsecure email server, from which she conducted all of her official business as secretary of state. The discovery and serial lies told by her campaign to explain this trip up only rehashed old criticisms about her from the 1990s, killed her numbers on character issues, which—coupled with the allegations unethical quid-pro-quo dealings at the Clinton Foundation—led to her defeat. Oh, and ignoring tens of millions of white working class voters, who flocked to Trump, also wasn’t the best decision. It wasn’t the Russians who defeated Clinton, fellow liberals.

Headquarters of the Metropolitan Republican Club

Soros, the MSM, Obama and his OFA minions are not the only enemies within who have their knives out for Trump. Elitist Republicans are proving to be perfidious, and some openly seem to be working against him via the manner in which they criticize him.

The globalist elitists are just that, no matter which so-called party they belong to. They spout differing views, but they are all siblings under the skin.

Trump supporters not welcome at elite Republican club
By Rebecca Rosenberg
February 6, 2017 | 9:41pm

Members of a storied Manhattan Republican club were booted during a heated meeting at its Upper East Side headquarters — because of their support for President Trump, sources told The Post.
Tensions at the Metropolitan Republican Club on East 83rd Street — which counts state Republican Committee chief Ed Cox and former Mayor Mike Bloomberg as members — had been festering for months over Trump’s ascent to the presidency.

After his surprise victory in November, sources said, the club’s old guard launched a campaign to cleanse Trump supporters.

“They hate Donald Trump, and they were really pissed when he won,” said expelled executive board member Sandra Chase.

Club President Debbie Coughlin, former club President Peter Hein, Bob Morgan III and Ian Reilly colluded to boot Trump backers — and flagrantly violated longstanding bylaws in doing so, the sources allege.
Dismissed members likened the move to a Soviet political purge.

One ousted member, Allan Stevo, said he was shocked to find a security guard stationed at the meeting last week.

“He was there to be a show of force and intimidation,” he said.

During the primary campaign, Coughlin, Reilly and Morgan gave then-Trump rival Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi, the “keys to the club,” said ousted member Michael Javelos.

Stevo said many rank-and-file members were concerned that the club was being used to materially back a specific candidate, rather than the GOP nominee.

“I was frustrated by how many people were ‘Never Trump’ on the board of the club,” he said. “The general membership was a different story. There were ardent Trump supporters.”

Chase said the purge was enabled by violations of the club’s bylaws, including failing to give 30 days’ written notice to members marked for removal.

At the end of the meeting, Javelos, Georgia Palmieri, Alain Palmieri, Stevo and Chase were removed from the committee. Georgia had been on the committee since 1998, she said.
Coughlin did not return requests for comment.

Allan StevoGabriella Bass

“The Met Club replaced its board members according to its bylaws. It was simply the replacing of the ‘old guard’ by younger blood, something that happens in any organization,” said club Chairwoman Adele Malpass. “This had absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump.”Why we’re outraged

Allan Stevo, 37, has been a member of the Met Club for five years and served on the board for one: Allan StevoGabriella Bass

The cronyism of the Met Club board, like similar county and state boards, is a perfect example of a swamp that needs draining.

Met Club members should be outraged because a small group of extremists have created needless discord in their club and have taken over their board, removing dedicated members who demanded change and called for more accountability in the club and in our country.

On Jan. 31, I was thrown off the board of the Metropolitan Republican Club, along with four other Donald Trump supporters.

While no one can be certain what another person thinks, the reason we were thrown off a Republican board appears to be our support for Trump.

The low level of support for Trump among some that remain on the board, and the high enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton well into the fall of 2016, was disappointing.

One of the people who helped throw us off, club President Deborah Coughlin, according to federal records has donated four times to “Friends of Schumer” in amounts over $1,000.

A cancer has metastasized throughout the leftist psyche and there is no cure. In addition to violent “protests”, false accusations, and the Soros funded “clueless believers”, the true totalitarians are now targeting GOP town halls for the sole purpose of creating havoc so that the elected officials cannot communicate with their constituents.

The continued traffic blocking, and other forms of disruption are designed to give the impression that the entire nation is against Trump. The truth is far from it. The majority of Americans have had it with and lost all tolerance for the leftist, PC, Orwellian world into which they have been thrust.

The dictatorial left’s primary tool is the inculcation of intolerance and hate into group think. Those liberals who might question what is happening will not be tolerated and are branded as traitors or as being  clueless. Here is a list of former Liberals who saw what was happening to the Democrat Party and to true Liberalism in general and chose to move toward  Conservatism. This list also includes some who were actually Communist in belief, but awakened to the reality of its true nature.

Here is a Yiannopoulos experience for a gay liberal driven to the right:
Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, had been a lifelong liberal. Then, last September, he penned a profile for Out magazine of Milo Yiannopoulos — a controversial and outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself). Although the Out story didn’t take a positive stance — or any stance — on Yiannopoulos, Moore found himself pilloried by fellow Democrats and ostracized by longtime friends.

Moore tells his story in the NY Post (below) — including why the backlash drove him to the right.

This man’s experience is emblematic of the goose-stepping, vicious left-wing totalitarians. Those of us with guts and spine to take a stand against the authoritarians are acutely aware of the campaign of destruction against anyone who dares go off the reservation, but for liberals who wake up to this — it’s seismic. It gives us a window into how the authoritarians that went before — brownshirts, blackshirts, nazis, communists — imposed their twisted will on once free societies. More

This man was lauded by the star struck American left .

Image result for images of useful idiots
Joseph Stalin, American Idol?

There is no shortage of clueless useful idiots ready to be bought and sold in order to present an impressive body count at various scheduled events.

They can be dangerous in their ignorance. They have continually ignored the grief and misery that their flawed belief system has inflicted upon the millions of people tortured, murdered, and condemned to live in Hell by their totalitarian masters.

Here is a condensed read of such events. For those who wish to study the issue in more depth, go here.

The latest development:

Democrats who used to work on Capitol Hill are helping to disrupt Republican lawmakers’ town hall meetings across the country through a nationwide effort to oppose and “resist” President Donald Trump’s agenda.

Indivisible is ultraslick leftist astroturf activism at its finest,” @Vadum says.

They call their group Indivisible Guide, a name that came from an actual guide posted online telling activists how to pressure members of Congress. Among topics: what to say when going to town halls and calling or visiting a member’s office.

Leaders of the organization have loose ties to George Soros, the billionaire hedge fund manager who bankrolls liberal causes, according to the Capital Research Center, a conservative think tank that investigates nonprofits.

However, in an email Friday to The Daily Signal, board members of Indivisible Guide denied financial backing from Soros…

The Capital Research Center argues that Indivisible Guide’s board has indirect ties with left-leaning groups funded by Soros, as well as with other liberal organizations.

“Indivisible is ultraslick leftist astroturf activism at its finest,” Matthew Vadum, senior vice president at the Capital Research Center, told The Daily Signal in an email. “At least three of the group’s five principals—Ezra Levin, Leah Greenberg, and Angel Padilla—have ties to organizations funded by George Soros. Indivisible is apparently not yet a nonprofit, but plans are in the works to register it as a nonprofit.” more

The oppressors of freedom are hard at work using liberalism as a cover:
Communist Party Admits Infiltration & Takeover of Democratic Party!
Communist Party USA boss John Bachtell boasted in a recent column that his Marxist-Leninist organization, a tentacle of the Soviet regime in America for decades, “utilizes” the increasingly radical Democratic Party to advance its totalitarian objectives in the United States. Writing in the Communist Party propaganda mouthpiece People’s World, Bachtell suggested that, eventually, a “radical third party” would become a viable option to advance communism in America. However, for now, he argued, fending off what he calls the “ultra-right” — essentially anyone to the right of Obama, whom American communists openly backed in both elections — requires the CPUSA to continue utilizing the Democrat Party as a “vehicle.” More

Many who cherish freedom, are beginning to fully understand what is happening as well as the evolution of News Speak (fake news) and its intended effect. Patriots who believe in and support the Constitution cannot allow the enemy within to create despair and a sense of being overwhelmed. The 2016 election proved that working and middle class Americans are the majority and must continue to wield their influence and power. The fight will be long and hard, but freedom, like anything worthwhile is well worth the fight.

(Isaac DavisThe illegal drug trade is an essential component of global politics, playing a central role in the proliferation of arms used to destabilize countries and unseat unfavorable regimes in the geopolitical quest to create favorable conditions for oil ventures while bolstering the banking industry.

by Isaac Davis, February 9th, 2017

Peter Dale Scott, a Canadian born scholar, poet and former diplomat, the world’s foremost researcher into the inner workings of government conspiracy (conspiracy meaning organized plans and programs). He has for decades been exposing the shadow elements operating under the cover of government, deep politics and big oil,
This underworld of influence is described in detail in Scott’s latest book, The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil, and the Attack on U.S. Democracy (War and Peace Library).
“He marshals convincing evidence that the deep state is partly institutionalized in non-accountable intelligence agencies like the CIA and NSA, but it also includes private corporations like Booz Allen Hamilton and SAIC, to which 70 percent of intelligence budgets are outsourced. Behind these public and private institutions is the traditional influence of Wall Street bankers and lawyers, allied with international oil companies beyond the reach of domestic law.” [Source]
Thus, Scott makes the case that these institutions operate outside of the law, and in a 2010 interview with James Corbett of the Corbett Report he makes the connection the global illegal drug trade is a primary factor in the funding and operation of government agencies which operate without legitimate legal franchise.
The connections between drug money, the deep state, and Wall Street are now well-defined.
“It’s clear that drug trafficking is a major factor in world scheme, and some people put it up as maybe number three, after oil being number one, and then arms number two, and then drugs number three. Actually there’s a certain amount of interaction between those because very often where you’re having illicit trafficking of arms, the planes that take arms in one direction, the arms are paid for with drugs and the planes come back with drugs.” ~Peter Dale Scott
Scott also discusses statements made in 2009 by the head of the UN Office of Drugs and  report revealing the critical role drug money played in keeping several of the world’s largest banks afloat during the financial crisis of 2008.
“Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were “the only liquid investment capital” available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year. He said that a majority of the $352bn (£216bn) of drugs profits was absorbed into the economic system as a result.” [Source]
In more recent years, more drug money laundering scandals were exposed in mainstream. Of particular note is the relationship HSBC and Mexican Sinaloa cartel, who laundered tens of billions of dollars through its services, a symbiotic relationship of great benefit to both organizations.
“The Sinaloa Cartel, headquartered on Mexico’s northern Pacific Coast, is constantly exploring new ways to launder its gargantuan profits. The State Department reports that Mexican trafficking organizations earn between $19 and $29 billion every year from selling marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines on the streets of American cities.
One key to the Sinaloa Cartel’s success has been to use the global banking system to launder all this cash.” [Source]
Commenting on the historical development of the relationship between banks and drugs, Scott explains how BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International) was jump started from Pakistan, becoming one of the world’s largest private banks, with the help of the CIA during its involvement in Afghanistan during the Soviet Union’s invasion in the 1980’s.
“A decade after opening, BCCI had over 400 branches in 78 countries, and assets in excess of US$20 billion, making it the 7th largest private bank in the world.” [Source]
Scott notes that the connection between the CIA and BCCI enabled drug trafficking as a means of arming the resistance against the Soviet Union.
The CIA didn’t have many resources in that part of the world… the financial negotiations for the shipment of arms through that part of the world were handled by BCCI… BCCI from the very beginning handled the drug trafficking for these clients in Afghanistan.” ~Peter Dale Scott
Other notable black-budget, off-the-books operations regarding the international drug trade and major developments in geopolitics in the last half century include the Iran Contra Affair, involving Col. Oliver North, and Operation Fast and Furious, in which the ATF deliberately permitted arms to fall into the hands of Mexican cartels.
As the prison industrial complex continues to grow, and a national epidemic of opiate abuse and overdoses has hit crisis levels, the U.S. military is residing over astronomical increases in opium production in Afghanistan. While this kind of information is nary examined in mainstream media, the corrosive effects of the drug trade and international conflict on modern societies.

Police officers patrol the perimeter at the scene of a fatal shooting in Vila Velha, Espirito Santo, Brazil

Is this our future? Will we eventually become a third world nation?

As a Reuters report recounts, soldiers patrolled abandoned streets in downtown Vitoria, stopping and frisking the occasional pedestrian against shuttered store fronts. State officials said they needed hundreds more federal troops and members of an elite federal police force to help establish order and make up for the absence of some 1,800 state police who normally patrol Vitoria’s metropolitan area.

In America:
Politicians Are Now Making Plans In Case The Public Turns Against Them Violently
As protests continue to break out all around the nation over President Donald Trump’s desire to scrap Obamacare, Politico reported Tuesday that many politicians are beginning to worry about their own personal safety — to the point where some are having private sessions to discuss the matter.

Citing sources who were in the room, Politico writes:
House Republicans during a closed-door meeting Tuesday discussed how to protect themselves and their staffs from protesters storming town halls and offices in opposition to repealing Obamacare.

Some of the suggestions, the news outlet reports, include “having a physical exit strategy at town halls, or a backdoor at congressional offices to slip out of, in case demonstrations turn violent; having local police monitor town halls; replacing any glass office-door entrances with heavy doors and deadbolts; and setting up intercoms to ensure those entering congressional offices are there for appointments, not to cause chaos.”

While protests are popping up all over, the Republicans’ private session was no doubt prompted by events that happened over the weekend. While speaking before a raucous crowd in Roseville, California, Representative Tom McClintock had to be escorted from the stage and away from the event by local police officers.

McClintock, who held town hall meetings during the politically volatile days of both the Tea Party and Occupy movements, told The Hill he’s never seen anything like it:

This was something very different. After an hour, the incident commander for the Roseville Police Department advised us the situation was deteriorating and felt it necessary to get me out of the venue. That’s never happened before. More

Threatening left-wing mob gathering outside of Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky home
Civil war is coming. It’s just a shot away. They lost the last one and they are going for it again. The left-wing primitives have been inciting and agitating for war.

The crowd is reportedly reading the letter Coretta Scott King wrote about now Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Much has been written as to just who and what these demonstrators/protester/rioters  truly represent and who is behind them. They are not just disgruntled Hillary supporters. They are a well organized collection of groups funded by a resolute and most dangerous enemy within. Let us all pray that events will not lead to blood in the streets, but it may well come to that.  It may be a long and exhausting battle. Be Prepared!

The Spartans lost at  Thermopolae because they were allegedly betrayed by an enemy within. However, even if they had not have been sabotaged, they were out woefully numbered. They did manage to buy time for the rest of Greece. Their bravery, tenacity, and willingness to die became an everlasting legend in the annals of history. We may well need the Spartan spirit.
