The evil Mr. Brock of Media Matters

The memo/manifesto, “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, each with their own strategy and attack plan.

Created by Brock, the document was given out at a private meeting with deep-pocketed liberals/leftists in January. The meeting was led by David Brock, founder of Media Matters and a close ally of George Soros who also provides much of his funding.

On the surface, it’s a plan to influence the media and the public over the next four years but, at its core, it is a plan to manipulate and control the populace.

The nuanced document claims the moral high-ground and insists they have the “moral responsibility” to fight the right-wing.

The talk of impeachment is Media Matters idea; controlling Google and Facebook is their idea; delegitimizing Trump’s presidency and Republicans – their idea; partnering with Facebook and Google to fight so-called “fake news” – theirs.

Everything they outlined is taking place.

Media Matters will expand to do the following

For the next four years, Media Matters will, according to the document, fight right-wing “misinformation” and “propaganda”; “Google and Facebook” will not “enrich fake news sites and propagandists” [they will punish the sites if they don’t cooperate]; “alt-right social media harassment campaigns…will be punished and halted.

They are in fact going after everything right-wing.

They have a goal of promoting good journalism but it is based on their view that the right-wing is extreme and the mainstream news is journalism.

Their issues include correcting “misinformation” on left-wing issues of LGBT, workers’ rights, treatment of immigrants (illegal), gun control, gender equality, reproductive health (abortion on demand), climate and energy and economic policy [tax, spend, regulate]. If you look at their Progressive agenda, which includes identity politics, and compare it to that of the Communist Party USA, you will find them comparable.

They have the raw data of social media

Gateway Pundit has been analyzing it and pulled out the following paragraph indicating they have the raw data from social media sites.

“Media Matters has already secured access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. We have also put in place the technology necessary to automatically mine white nationalist message boards and alt-right communities for our archive.

We will now develop technologies and processes to systematically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

With the raw data, they can control every facet of social media and, as a result, the minds of readers.

For example, on p. 43, they wrote they were building an algorithm at the time of printing that is “specifically designed to amplify negative content for Trump and deliver positive content to bolster the resistance. Further, by pulling the most widely shared progressive content from the top 1,000 social media accounts, Shareblue’s algorithm will not only aggregate, but drive news and opinion.” [Shareblue is their left-wing answer to Breitbart].

Also, Media Matters has mapped the right-wing  “fake news” sites, prioritized them, and has helped Google tailor their policies for advertising to shut these sites out.

They are behind the shutting down of the right on Facebook and Google by their own admission (p.12).

Having a wide reach isn’t enough, they want to recruit and train other bloggers to call out and shut down the right-wing. With the raw data and the cooperation of Google and Facebook, it won’t be hard for them to do and we already see it happening.

They also have the opposition research thanks to American Bridge. It’s American Bridge’s job to research, collect, store and disseminate their huge database of information to level the opposition.

The targets:  continue here

Is self hatred the emerging globalist tool for the defeat of patriotism and nationalism? The socio/psychological war has been waging for some time, and it just may be on the verge of success–at least in France. One should be astounded that the French, of all nationalities should be the first to completely cave to the elitist “Agenda”. Did the voters really know what they were getting?
Can America resist the siren call of world unity?
Behold Macron’s statements and actions from the following articles.

“Boiled down to its simplest form, Macron’s win shows that the Establishment can elect one of its own against a patriot like Marine Le Pen if they can convince enough of the electorate that it’s ‘racist’ to vote in favor of preserving one’s own country and civilization,“….
Macron has said that French culture does not exist and that there is no such thing as a distinctive French art, Jatras recalled
“One is stunned. What country more than la belle France undoubtedly has a beautiful and distinctly national culture? Only a conscious anti-patriot, crude philistine, or total idiot could say the things Macron does. Yet he now is to lead a country whose culture and art whose existence he denies,” he noted.” more

Who is Emmanuel Macron? France’s new leader called ‘useful idiot’ on militant Islam
“French President-elect Emmanuel Macron is a “globalist” and an “open promoter of multiculturalism” who does not consider Islamism a national threat, a French journalist and author said.
“During the cold war with the Soviet Union, they were called ‘Useful Idiots,’ ” Yves Mamou wrote for Gatestone Institute on May 7. “These people were not members of the Communist Party, but they worked for, spoke in favor of and supported the ideas of Lenin and Stalin. In the 21st century, Communism is finally dead but Islamism has grown and is replacing it as a global threat….
Macron has, “in fact, denied that France is a country with a specific culture, a specific history, and a specific literature or art,” Mamou wrote. “On Feb. 22, visiting the French expatriates in London, Macron said: ‘French culture does not exist, there is a culture in France and it is diverse’. In other words, on French territory, French culture and French traditions have no prominence or importance over imported migrant cultures. The same day, in London, he repeated the offense: ‘French art? I never met it!’ ”

Macron nixes French national anthem & walks out to EU SONG after win: ‘I’ll defend Europe!’

“EMMANUEL Macron neglected his own nation’s musical emblem as he walked out to deliver his victory speech, instead heralding his victory with the EU’s Anthem of Europe.By Vincent Wood. May 8, 2017:
In the past French politicians have announced their victory to the sound of La Marseillaise, which has stood as their anthem for hundreds of years.
But Mr Macron, who has gained support from major European figures including Jean-Claude Juncker and Angela Merkel, instead blasted the anthem of Europe ‘Ode to Joy’ from the speakers as he waved to adoring crowds of voters outside the Louvre museum.
The show of allegiance with the faltering European project was condemned by the losing Front National, who have fought to remove France from the crumbling European bloc.
Speaking to the public he said: “I’ll defend France, I’ll defend Europe, and will strengthen links between Europe and its people.”
And while he later sang the French anthem with the crowd at the end of his speech, French voters on Twitter were quick to criticise his decision as a sign of European subservience.
Written in 1824 by German Ludwig van Beethoven and based on a poem by countryman Friedrich Schiller in 1785, Ode to Joy was used as a stand in national anthem for Unified Team of Germany in the Olympics from 1956 to 1968, and later taken on by the EU in 1985.SNP MPs whistled then later sung the tune as a protest against Brexit in the House of Commons during the third reading of the Great Repeal Bill.It comes as British officials attempt to predict how the Europhile president will approach a Brexit deal.Mr Macron is a centrist populist who stands in favour of the European Union and has been a clear opponent of Brexit, branding it a “crime” in his manifesto.


The show of allegiance with the EU was condemned by Front National
On the campaign trail, he said that Britain would face “consequences” for leaving the EU and promised to take a tough stance in the divorce negotiations.In February, Mr Macron said: “If your Government decides to organise a Brexit, I will be pretty tough on it.“We have to preserve the rest of the European Union and not to convey the message that you can decide to leave without any consequences.”He favours a hard Brexit which would leave Britain outside of the single market and protect the interests of EU members. French voters on twitter were quick to criticise his decision as a sign of European subservience.” (emphasis mine)   Source: Pamela Geller.com

Jetpac founder Nadeem Mazen has ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. His goal is to get more Muslims elected to city, state and federal offices across the U.S.

The following report is detailed and worth reading. One may find the amount of political/cultural penetration into America portentous, to say the least. It is not alarmist to say that should this Islamist soft jihad continue here, America will be Europe within 50 years, possibly sooner.

by Leo Hohmann
A new organization called Jetpac Inc. is mobilizing to get more Muslims elected to public office in U.S. cities and states, but an investigation into the founder’s background reveals ties to the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, which has been hard at work trying to influence American politics since the 1990s.


The first Muslim elected to a national office was Rep. Keith Ellison, who was elected in 2006 to represent a heavily Democratic district in Minnesota. He was sworn into office with his hand on the Quran, and that singular act opened a world of possibilities for other politically minded Muslims.


But the victories since then have been few and far between, says Nadeem Mazen, and that’s why he has started Jetpac – or the Justice, Education, and Technology Policy Advocacy Center. Its sole purpose is to organize and train Muslims for elected offices at the local, state and national levels.
Mazen, Jetpac’s founder and president, became Massachusetts’ first Muslim elected to public office when he won a seat on the Boston City Council in 2013.


There have been many breakthroughs since Ellison’s election in 2006, not the least of which was Ellison’s own promotion to the No. 2 officer in charge of the Democratic National Committee behind chairman Tom Perez.
Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., was elected to Congress in 2008, the city of Hamtramck in 2016 became the first city to be governed by a Muslim-majority city council, and Minneapolis voters elected Ilhan Omar as the nation’s first female Muslim state legislator in November.


Ilhan, 34, came to America as a “refugee” from Somalia and was resettled in the growing enclave of Somalis in the Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis. Not surprisingly, that Somali enclave has now amassed enough numbers to elect a Somali representative to the State House.
Civilization jihad proceeding according to plan?


This is exactly how the Muslim Brotherhood envisioned the takeover of America, through non-violent civilizational jihad, experts on the shadowy network tell WND.


Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, the current health commissioner for the city of Detroit, announced in February he was running for governor of Michigan as a Democrat.


Like Ilhan, Ellison and Carson, Sayed has the full backing of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a spinoff of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Numerous other major cities such as Minneapolis and Boston have elected Muslims to their city councils, which in turn leads to key appointments of Muslims to the police and fire departments.

But that’s not nearly enough progress, says Mazen, the Jetpac founder.
“Muslims are unbelievably underrepresented in elected office,” Mazen told the Boston Globe. “Having Muslims in elected office, the way I am, can change the narrative from being on the defensive [in the media] … to the work that we actually do around issues such as affordable housing.”


There are about 3.3 million Muslims in America, according to an estimate by Pew Research, which account for about 1.5 percent of the U.S. population. CAIR and others estimate the population could be as high as 5 to 7 million

.
But the narrative provided by Mazen is mostly propaganda meant for the untrained non-Muslim ear, dutifully passed on as “news” by politically correct media outlets, says Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Center for Security Policy and author of “Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party.”

Lopez noted Mazen was a founding member of the CAIR chapter in Massachusetts after serving as the president of the Muslim Student Association at MIT.

CAIR and the MSA are both off-shoots of the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, which is banned as a terrorist organization in at least half a dozen countries, including Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE.

While most Muslim politicians publicly support social justice, environmental justice, free and easy abortions, same-sex marriage and the full pallet of LGBTQ rights, that is merely a means to an end. The ultimate goal is Shariah law for Americans, Lopez said.

But who could ever get elected in America on a platform of Shariah law?
She says the Brotherhood will back candidates who wrap themselves in the liberal causes of the day and attach themselves to the Democratic Party, knowing that they have a ready-made political machine eager to push their candidates to the forefront of American politics.
(emphasis mine)

“We know that the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood began planning at least a decade ago to seed the U.S. political system with young, up-and-coming, Shariah-adherent, Shariah-promoting stealth jihadist like Ilhan Omar in Minnesota – now it’s happening – they are shrewdly using our own system against us – via Star Spangled Shariah.”


Omar made headlines Thursday when she was one of only two lawmakers to vote against a bill in the Minnesota State House that would allow life insurance companies to deny death benefits to the families of dead terrorists.


Two years ago, on March 12, 2014, the Muslim Brotherhood launched its own political party, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations. But that hasn’t changed its longtime modus operandi of working with and through friendly non-Muslim organizations and parties.


With the Democratic Party already in the bag, the Brotherhood scored another hit this past week when the U.S. Green Party instructed its activists to cooperate with and build political networks with CAIR and other Muslim groups at the grassroots level. (emphasis mine)

The Council of Muslim Organizations is an umbrella organization whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of leaders in Brotherhood front groups – with the goal of getting more Muslim representation in Washington and in state capitols, according to a report by Investor’s Business Daily, IBD.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community, Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR’s national office, told IBD.


IBD concluded the Council of Muslim Organizations “also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of ‘institutionalizing policies’ favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.”


But the effort precedes 2014 and actually found its genesis in 2010, said Lopez.


“What’s key to understand is how these groups are spinning off of the first generation,” she said.


In January 2010, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gifted the Muslim Brotherhood with a key opportunity when she signed the Exercise of Discretionary Authority under Section 212(d)(3)(B)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, according to a Center for Security Policy report.


That stroke of a pen by Clinton allowed Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna, to enter the United States for the first time since the Department of Homeland Security revoked his visa in July 2004.


Less than four months later, on May 5, 2010, Project Mobilize, which included board members with ties to multiple Muslim Brotherhood front organizations, was founded by M. Yasser Tabara in Summit, Illinois.
At its website, Project Mobilize’s mission included:

To Develop the political capital existing within the Muslim American community;
To Organize the Muslim American community around issues determined relevant; and
To Advocate on behalf of the Muslim American community to elected officials and persons with political clout so that they act upon the concerns and desires of their Muslim American constituents.

The U.S. Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial in 2008 identified networks of Muslim groups that were moving to elevate the next generations to positions of leadership. They hit pay dirt during the Obama administration, which embedded many of these sleepers into federal agencies, where they remain to this day.

“In other words, the Islamic movement is expanding aggressively in the U.S. even while taking steps to disguise their true affiliation with the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood,” Lopez said.


A trip to Saudi Arabia:
Back in 2007, a Muslim prayer leader and professor at Georgetown University, Yahya Hendi, traveled to Saudi Arabia and spoke to fellow Muslim academics. He said Islam was already becoming part of the mainstream of American society in 2007 and predicted that by the end of 2015 approximately 30 cities would have Muslim mayors. He said there would be “three or four” Muslim members of Congress by 2015 (There were two).


The only potential roadblock to continued growth of Islam in America could be the presence of “Christian extremists,” Hendi told the Saudis, as reported by the Washington Times.


Perhaps it is because that prediction has failed to materialize that the Muslim Brotherhood has been doubling down since 2014 on its political organizing.


Ann Corcoran, author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, notes that the key to getting Muslims into office rests with refugee placement into cities, which inevitably leads to enclaves that vote in blocs for Muslim candidates.


“I remember hearing about Hendi’s prediction in 2007 and it struck me as very odd. Imagine the outcry if an American Catholic bishop traveled to the Vatican and said we need to have 30 Catholic mayors in the U.S.?” she said. “Or what if a Jewish rabbi went to Israel and said we envision 30 Jewish mayors by 2025? The media would have a field day with that, calling it bigoted and divisive. But the Muslims say we need more Muslim mayors and the media cheers.


“If your goal is to improve government at the city, state or national level, what should it matter what the politician’s religion is?”

The narrative “Russian influence threw the 2016 election to Trump” will not die. The brutal truth is that, in 2016, the people won and the elitists lost.
Hillary’s die hard supporters will never concede that Trump won no matter what facts have or may in the future come to light.
A “resistance” has arisen financed by Soros and other elites. These monied power brokers are creating as much chaos as they can to make this nation ungovernable. The people are now fighting back, and the financiers are hoping that the stage has been set for their take over in order to restore “law and order”.
Have they misjudged the power of the citizenry? Will the lapdog MSM continue to cover their agenda in a velvet cloak of barefaced lies. How will this “Second American Civil War” end?
Time will tell.
Will the following expose change anything? How many even know of the publication cited in the following post?

‘Shattered’: Clinton expose reveals Russian ‘narrative’ was spun within hours of Trump win

by WorldTribune Staff, April 25, 2017
Hillary Clinton launched the Russian meddling narrative within 24 hours of her concession speech, the authors of a riveting behind-the-scenes book on the Clinton campaign said.
“Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign”, reveals how Clinton and her team responded in the immediate aftermath of a devastating electoral defeat.
Authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes cite a longtime Clinton confidant in detailing how the Democratic candidate went out of her way to “make sure all these narratives get spun the right way.”
The book also reveals that Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook:
“That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.”

The authors said that team Clinton settled on a two-pronged plan — pushing the press to cover how “Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign, overshadowed by the contents of stolen e-mails and Hillary’s own private-server imbroglio,” while “hammering the media for focusing so intently on the investigation into her e-mail, which had created a cloud over her candidacy.”
The authors also detail Clinton’s confusion and frustration with former President Barack Obama, whom she apparently thought didn’t do enough “to apprise the public that the Russians had gone way beyond what had been reported”.
She wondered why the president hadn’t leaned harder into making the case that Vladimir Putin was specifically targeting her and trying to throw the election to Trump.
“The press botched the e-mail story for eighteen months,” one person who was part of the strategy is quoted as saying. “Comey obviously screwed us, but the press created the story.”

 

The book said that overall Clinton blamed her loss to Donald Trump on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.
But Allen and Parnes also provided other data that points to the reason Clinton lost — and it’s not Russia. According to the data, men and working class Democrats in Pennsylvania turned to Trump, and he simply outperformed Clinton with white voters in battleground Florida.
“Exit polls in Pennsylvania showed that Clinton and Obama won women by thirteen-point margins in 2016 and 2012, respectively. But in a state that has never elected a woman governor or U.S. senator, men favored Trump by seventeen points – a massive increase over Mitt Romney’s three-point edge in 2012. From a geographical perspective, Hillary did better than Obama in Philadelphia and its surrounding suburban counties but lost working-class Democratic strongholds in Erie and Luzerne Counties that Obama had carried.
“In Florida, Trump crushed Hillary in the suburban swing areas outside Tampa and St. Petersburg. As he did nationally, Trump did better with white Floridians than Romney had, doubling up Clinton at 64 percent to 32 percent. Romney had beaten Obama 61 percent to 37 percent among Florida whites.”

This spurious old beast never quits. Where ever you find evil in politics or national distress, chances are, he is behind it.

Excerpt:…”Soros and his organizations are getting worried because the Convention of States movement is gaining traction.
“They’re socialists and Marxists and elitists, and they would like to see the government control everything rather than individuals have liberty and freedom, and they do not want any power devolved from Washington because they can have better control over it there,” Coburn declared.
In their statement opposing an Article V Convention, the 230 left-leaning organizations sounded an alarm….”

George Soros appears to have fixed his eye on a new enemy – a proposed Article V Convention. 
Operatives from Soros-funded organizations have been caught on camera lobbying state legislators in at least two states to oppose an Article V Convention resolution.

Anthony Gutierrez of Common Cause Texas, a Soros-funded group, testified against Article V Convention legislation before the Texas legislature, and Ted Boettner of the West Virginia Center on Budget & Policy, sponsored by Soros’ Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, lobbied against such legislation in the Mountain State.
Common Cause and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities have also put out policy papers attacking the effort to call an Article V Convention.
In fact, 230 left-wing organizations have organized to oppose an Article V Convention. The groups include the Brennan Center for Justice, the Center for Media and Democracy, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Democracy 21, People for the American Way and the League of Women Voters. These 230 organizations, many of which are funded by Soros, put out a statement calling an Article V Convention “a threat to every American’s constitutional rights and civil liberties.”
David Super, a Georgetown law professor who served as general counsel to Soros’ Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, has also attacked the idea of an Article V Convention through op-eds in multiple major media outlets.
So what exactly are Soros and his underlings fighting against? The Article V Convention, also known as an Amendments Convention, is a provision America’s Founding Fathers included in Article V of the Constitution. It is one of two methods by which the Constitution may be amended. To hold such a convention, two-thirds of the state legislatures must pass an application calling for it. Amendments proposed at the convention would then need to be ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures to become part of the Constitution.
Citizens for Self-Governance, through its Convention of States Project, is currently undertaking an effort to push the necessary 34 state legislatures to call for an Article V Convention to propose amendments that would limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. So far, 10 states have passed an application to call for such a convention.
Former Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., now serves as a senior adviser to the Convention of States Project. In fact, he lays out the case for an Article V Convention in his new book “Smashing the DC Monopoly: Using Article V to Restore Freedom and Stop America’s Runaway Government.” He told WND that Soros and his organizations are getting worried because the Convention of States movement is gaining traction.
“They’re socialists and Marxists and elitists, and they would like to see the government control everything rather than individuals have liberty and freedom, and they do not want any power devolved from Washington because they can have better control over it there,” Coburn declared.
In their statement opposing an Article V Convention, the 230 left-leaning organizations sounded an alarm.
“An Article V convention is a dangerous threat to the U.S. Constitution, our democracy, and our civil rights and liberties. There is no language in the U.S. Constitution to limit a convention to one issue and there is reason to fear that a convention once called will be able to consider any amendments to the constitution that the delegates want to consider.”
The groups urged state legislatures to oppose any resolution to call for an Article V Convention “in order to protect all Americans’ constitutional rights and privileges from being put at risk and up for grabs.”
But that is simple fearmongering, according to Coburn.
“That’s the inflammatory language that they use based on fear so they can accomplish what they want rather than accomplish what people want,” the former senator said.
Coburn pointed out an Article V Convention is only allowed to consider amendments related to the topic specified in the 34 applications that trigger the convention. So if any delegates were to propose amendments beyond the scope of the applications, it would be out of order. Even if a majority of delegates did vote for such a rogue amendment, the amendment could be challenged in court for failing to meet the requirements of the application. And even if the courts somehow declared a rogue amendment constitutional, it is unlikely three-fourths of states would ratify the amendment under such circumstances.
Soros and his ilk have not always opposed the idea of an Article V Convention. In 2014 several left-wing organizations pushed for a Convention of States to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling and end corporate personhood. Groups that latched onto the effort included Wolf PAC, Alliance for Democracy, Center for Media and Democracy, Code Pink, Progressive Democrats of America and Sierra Club.
Coburn noted the hypocrisy of these leftists.
“You ask them the question: ‘Well, if you’re saying all these bad things can happen in a convention, why would you want one for Citizens United?’” the senator said. “The typical elitist argument is that, ‘We can do it, but anybody else other than us in the elite probably couldn’t do this without us losing all our rights.’”
But Coburn considers that a ridiculous argument.
“Remember, this isn’t a constitutional convention,” he reminded. “This is a convention of states making recommendations to the states about things that should be changed in the Constitution. So if you drill down on it, you would have to have 38 states say, ‘We want to do all this bad stuff to the Constitution.’”
Daniel Horowitz, senior editor at Conservative Review and author of “Stolen Sovereignty: How to Stop Unelected Judges From Transforming America,” said no other movement has identified some sort of systemic solution to the real problems in American government better than the Convention of States movement. He said it’s becoming clear that electing Republicans isn’t good enough to fix what’s wrong with the country.
“I think more than ever the rationale for Article V is becoming very clear, because many people have been feeling the sense of desperation for the past few years, noting that the Republican Party has become an even more ineffective tool for combating this constitutional crisis, combating this social transformation, the growth of government,” Horowitz told WND.
Horowitz acknowledged many people voted for Trump believing he could “drain the swamp” and break the D.C. monopoly’s chokehold on the American people, but the president has disappointed in many ways so far. That’s where the Convention of States comes in.
“The best aspect of the Article V movement is the fact that they recognize that what we’re doing is not working, that we’re not one election away from making America great again,” Horowitz declared. “You’re not going to make America great by electing any one individual.
“I think people are noticing just a few months into this presidency that on a lot of very core issues, things really are not fundamentally changing on the growth of government, the growth of spending, Obamacare, even with refugees and immigration, because you have basically a corrupted political system.”
Coburn also sees the system, not President Trump, as the fundamental problem.
“I’m not that critical of what he’s done so far,” the former senator said. “The problem is you’re not ever going to change the politicos. What you have to change is the amount of power they have over our lives, and the way to do that is you devolve that back to the states like our founders intended.
“They never intended this much power to be in Washington in the first place, and the way you do that is limiting the scope of jurisdiction, putting term limits on members of Congress and forcing a balanced budget amendment. So you can do all that, and we’ll get it done, and the reason we’re seeing George Soros and his organizations [oppose us] is they’re starting to get worried about it.”

Soros not only funds seditious activities in America, but in foreign nations as well.

“You can’t make this stuff up. We are funding the black hand.
Our government is so huge, our taxes so burdensome, that we have lost control – we, the people, have lost control. We fund terrorists, we fund seditious universities, we fund the single most evil human being on the planet – George Soros.”

Judicial Watch Sues State Department and USAID for Records about Funding and Political Activities of George Soros’ Open Society Foundation – Macedonia
USAID website reports it gave $4,819,125 in taxpayer money to Soros’s Open Society Foundation – Macedonia between from 2012 to 2016

(Judicial Watch – Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for records and communications relating to the funding and political activities of the Open Society Foundation – Macedonia. The Macedonia organization, part of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, received nearly $5 million from USAID from 2012 to 2016. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (No. 1:17-cv-00729)).
The suit was filed after both the U.S. Department of State and USAID failed to respond to a February 16, 2017, FOIA request seeking:


All records related to any grants, contracts, or disbursements of funds by the Department of State to the Open Society Foundation – Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s subsidiaries. This request includes all related requests for funding, payment authorizations, or similar records, as well as all related records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any official, employee, or representative of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
Any records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any officer, employee, or representative of the Open Society Foundation -Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s affiliated organizations. This request includes responsive records of communication sent from or directed to U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia Jess L. Baily.
All analyses or similar records regarding the political activities of the Open Society Foundation -Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s affiliated organizations.
All messages transmitted via the State Department’s SMART system sent from any U.S. Government employee or contractor operating under the Chief of Mission’s authority at the U.S. Embassy in Skopje that pertain to the Open Society Foundation – Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s affiliated organizations.
The USAID website reports that between February 27, 2012, and August 31, 2016, USAID gave $4,819,125 in taxpayer money to Soros’s Open Society Foundation – Macedonia (FOSM), in partnership with four local civil society organizations. The USAID’s website links to http://www.soros.org.mk, and says the project trained hundreds of young Macedonians “on topics such as freedom of association, youth policies, citizen initiatives, persuasive argumentation and use of new media.”
In February, Judicial Watch reported:
“The U.S. government has quietly spent millions of taxpayer dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center-right government in Macedonia by colluding with leftwing billionaire philanthropist George Soros, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. Barack Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia, Jess L. Baily, has worked behind the scenes with Soros’ Open Society Foundation to funnel large sums of American dollars for the cause, constituting an interference of the U.S. Ambassador in domestic political affairs in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.”
Here’s how the clandestine operation functions, according to high-level sources in Macedonia and the U.S. that have provided Judicial Watch with records as part of an ongoing investigation. The Open Society Foundation has established and funded dozens of leftwing, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Macedonia to overthrow the conservative government. One Macedonian government official interviewed by Judicial Watch in Washington D.C. recently, calls it the “Soros infantry.” The groups organize youth movements, create influential media outlets and organize violent protests to undermine the institutions and policies implemented by the government. One of the Soros’ groups funded the translation and publication of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” into Macedonian. The book is a tactical manual of subversion, provides direct advice for radical street protests and proclaims Lucifer to be the first radical. Thanks to Obama’s ambassador, who has not been replaced by President Trump, Uncle Sam keeps the money flowing so the groups can continue operating and recruiting, sources in Macedonia and the U.S. confirm.
According to InsidePhilanthropy.com, Soros’ Open Society Foundation “may be the largest philanthropic organization ever built, with branches in 37 countries. While the Gates Foundation spends more money, OSF has a larger footprint worldwide thanks to its many local offices, including throughout Africa.” OSF’s budget will be around $930 million …”
The activities of Ambassador Bailey and USAID’s funding of the Open Society Foundation have recently come under Congressional scrutiny. On January 17, 2017, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) sent a letter to Baily asking him to explain the State Department’s relationship with Open Society Foundation. On February 24, 2017, Representatives Chris Smith (R-NJ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and others called on the Government Accountability Office to conduct an investigation and audit of the Department of State and USAID’s activities in Macedonia, including funding of Open Society Foundation entities and potential interference in domestic Macedonian political affairs in potential violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
“The Obama administration seemed to bust taxpayer budgets in an effort to fund the Soros operation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Trump State Department and USAID should get their act together and disclose the details of the Obama-Soros spigot.”

The number of Western, leftist, female, useful idiots who support Sharia and Islamism is staggering.
Are they really so dense as to not recognize Islamist doublethink, or are they conniving globalists seeking to destroy Western Civilization in order to establish elitist control. It is either one or the other.

“Easy to kill women”: Three honor killings in three weeks in ONE PROVINCE in Afghanistan
By Pamela Geller
Honor killing, child marriage, forced marriage, rampant suicide among women – why is all this happening? Because of Islamic texts and teachings allowing for wife-beating, polygamy, the subjugation and brutalization of women, the sanctioning of child marriage and honor killing, and more. Yet Islam is not mentioned in this France 24 exposé. The West is in total denial about the causes of these problems as it continues to import them into its own countries.
“The place in Afghanistan where it’s “easy to kill women”, by Masouma Anvari, France 24, April 13, 2017:

A 19-year-old shot by her husband’s family after he claimed she wasn’t a virgin. An 18-year-old was killed with her mother because of suspicion she had had an abortion. And a 17-year-old killed and burned when she tried to escape from a forced marriage. Our Observer in Ghor province, Afghanistan, brings us three stories of honour killings from the last three weeks.
Ghor is a remote mountain province 400 km west of the capital Kabul. The Taliban and other armed groups are active, and state control is weak. It’s also one of the least-developed provinces in Afghanistan: child marriage is common, and “honour killings” – often women trying to flee marriages they were forced into – are frequent.
According to Afghan law, girls must be 16 years old to marry, and boys 18. But our Observer says that in the remote villages of Ghor, the law is seldom respected. The marriage of a 6-year-old girl to a 55-year mullah in the province 2016 provoked international outrage.
“You see how easy it is to kill women here”
Masooma Anwari, a longtime women’s rights activist, is also head of women’s affairs in the province, a position appointed by the central government in Kabul.
About three weeks ago in Shahrak district, a 19-year-old girl called Bibigol was shot by her husband and his family. She was forced to marry a boy her age five years ago; he was 13 at the time, she was 14. Because they were children, they didn’t have sexual intercourse. Then three weeks ago her husband wanted to have sex with her for the first time. He claimed that she wasn’t a virgin. After arguments between the two families, tribal leaders ordered her to be shot. She was executed in cold blood on a hillside.
Then on April 3 activists in the province published photographs on Facebook showing the burned bodies of a woman and a man. The bodies had been discovered in a ravine near a village in the province’s Du Layna district.
The photos show the burned body of a young woman named Soraya. She was 17 years old, and lived in Du Layna. She ran away with a male cousin and while they were fleeing they killed her husband. The couple went to the house of Soraya’s mother in another village. But her husband’s brothers followed them and killed all three of them to avenge their family’s honour – Soraya, her cousin, and her mother. They burned Soraya’s body afterwards. We asked the police to arrest the husband’s brothers, but they said it was impossible because they fled to territory under control of the Taliban. The police said there was nothing they could do.
And then, just four days ago, an unmarried girl called Mahansar, who was about 18, was killed along with her mother Tabarrok, 45, on the orders of tribal leaders, also in the Dawlat Yar district. They claimed she had got pregnant and had had an abortion. But there’s no sign she was even pregnant. You see how easy it is to kill women here.
“People think killers are defending their honour”
Ghor is a no man’s land. People are poor and not educated, and the culture of violence and weapons is well-established. People live in fear – in fear of the powerful tribal leaders, who are often involved in the drug trade, and the Taliban. The police are ineffective and just think about getting more money.
It’s unsafe for everyone, but especially for women. Many women here were forced into marriages when they were still children – as early as 10 years old; and sometimes even younger. When they get older they want to run away from the miserable life they were forced into. And if they try they often end up becoming victims of honour killings by male members of their tribe. People don’t see these men as criminals: they accept that they are defending their family’s honour. Also, it’s easy for the perpetrators to find shelter in the Taliban regions, where the police can’t arrest them.
People in Afghanistan talk about women who are killed in honour killings. But they don’t talk about the women who choose to end their lives themselves because they are living in situations they can’t bear. It is very common for women to commit suicide by eating rat poison or setting fire to themselves….

Does the average citizen truly understand the threat this nation is under? How long will it be until, just like Israel, we will experience daily terrorist attacks on American soil?
Apologist for Islamism take note, as kefirs, you will not be spared should hijrah achieve its goal–cultural conquest by migrant invasion.

Terrorists inside America plotting attacks ‘each and every single day’
by: Adam Kredo
Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike “each and every single day.”
The FBI has “open terrorist investigations in all 50 states,” according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.
Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that America’s borders remain wide-open and that there is evidence terror-linked individuals are exploiting these national security weaknesses and entering the United States.

“We don’t know their intentions,” Kelly said during an address at George Washington University. “We don’t know why they’re here or why they’re coming. We are completely blind to what they’re capable of.”
Terrorist also continues to sprout inside American communities across the country, according to Kelly, who said that in just the past year, there have been “36 homegrown terrorist cases in 18 states.”
“We’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homegrown terrorism,” Kelly disclosed. “These are the cases we know about—homegrown terrorism is notoriously difficult to predict and control.”
Terrorists in the United States are plotting attacks “every single day,” according to Kelly.
“I tell you, without exaggeration, they try to carry out this mission each and every single day and no one can tell you how to stop it. No one,” he said.
The United States, he continued, is “under attack” from a wide variety of bad actors, including “failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals.”
“And we are under attack every single day,” he said. “The threats are relentless.”
Those who slip over the border undetected, including criminals and potential radicalized terrorists, pose an unparalleled threat to the country.
“We don’t get to vet them,” Kelly said. “We don’t know their intentions. We don’t know they’re here. They slip into our country unnoticed, living among us, and we are completely blind as to what they are capable of.”
These threats just scrape the surface of the danger posed to America by terrorists inside and outside of the country, Kelly said.
“This is all bad news, but it gets much worse,” he explained. “Experts estimate that perhaps 10,000 citizens of Europe have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Thousands more are from nations in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere. They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordnance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home.”
These highly trained terrorist fighters are likely to return to their countries of origin and “wreak murderous havoc” across Europe, Asia, and the United States, among other countries.
America lacks the ability to properly vet these individuals when they attempt to enter the country, according to Kelly, who warned that scores of radicalized individuals are trying each day to enter America.
“Many are citizens of countries in our Visa Waiver Program, they can more easily travel to the United States which makes us a prime target for their exported violence,” he said.
The threat to America “has metastasized and decentralized, and the risk is as threatening today as it was that September morning almost 16 years ago,” Kelly warned.
“We are under attack from terrorists both within and outside of our borders,” he said. “They are without conscience, and they operate without rules. They despise the United States, because we are a nation of rights, laws, and freedoms. They have a single mission, and that is our destruction.”

Image: Just 10 powerful globalist corporations control almost all the food you buy and consume

When you go into a large supermarket, the number of food options you have to choose from is almost overwhelming. Just five feet from the main entrance, shoppers are immediately inundated with Oreos, Pringles, 2-liter bottles of soda, cases of water, candy, and various other snacks. Walking through the aisles, it’s common to see waffles, salsa, yogurt, coffee, juice, various kinds of cereal, and hundreds of other foods and drinks. Amazingly, there is one thing that nearly every single item inside of a typical grocery store has in common – they are all produced by just 10 international corporations.

The companies include Nestle, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Danone, General Mills, Associated British Foods, Kellogg’s, Mars, and Mondelez, and each of them employs thousands of people and profits billions of dollars in annual revenue. Below is a breakdown of each of these global corporations and what it is that they produce:

Kellogg’s

With a 2016 revenue of $13 billion, Kellogg’s is perhaps best known for cereal like Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, and Corn Pops. However, most people are unaware that Kellogg’s also owns brands like Eggo, Pringles, Cheez-It, Pop-Tarts, Nutri-Grain, and Vanilla Wafers. In November of last year, Kellogg’s announced that the company was pulling all of their ads from Breitbart.com due to the fact that the conservative website was not “aligned with our values as a company.” As a result, Breitbart launched a #DumpKelloggs petition and encouraged their readers to boycott.

Associated British Foods

In 2016, Associated British Foods collected a total revenue of $16.8 billion. The company owns several different brands, including Dorset Cereals, Twinings tea, Allied Mills, Westmill Foods, Speedbaker, and the retailer Primark.

General Mills

Just shy of Associated British Food’s 2016 revenue, General Mills collected $16.6 billion last year. General Mills owns many popular cereal brands such as Cheerios, Chex, Kix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reeses Puffs, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, and Lucky Charms. Other non-cereal brands owned by General Mills include Yoplait, Hamburger Helper, and Betty Crocker.

Danone

Danone is a corporation that is best known for yogurt. With a 2016 revenue of $23.7 billion, Danone owns Activia, Yocrunch, and Oikos, in addition to various nutrition products. Danone also owns some bottled water brands like Aqua and Evian.

Mondelez 

Mondelez owns several popular snacking brands such as Oreo, Chips Ahoy, Sour Patch Kids, Cadbury, Trident Gum, Ritz, Triscuit, and Wheat Thins. Mondelez collected $25.9 billion in 2016.

Mars

Mars is a corporation that is best known for chocolate. With $35 billion collected in 2016, Mars owns Dove Chocolate, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Snickers, M&M’s, Twix and several other chocolate-based snacks. Additionally, Mars also owns Uncle Ben’s rice, Combos, Starburst, and Orbit gum.

Coca-Cola

Perhaps one of the most popular corporations in existence in Coca-Cola, which owns dozens of different beverages from Spite to Fanta, Dasani to Minute Maid, Fresca to Mellow Yellow. Coca-Cola took in a whopping $41.9 billion in 2016.

Unilever

Though perhaps Unilever isn’t the most well-known corporation in existence, it owns dozens of brands that most people use on a regular basis. With a 2016 revenue of $48.3 billion, Unilever owns Axe body spray, Lipton tea, Hellmann’s mayonnaise, Dove, Degree deodorant, Vaseline and Ben & Jerry’s.

PepsiCo

The obvious brand owned by PepsiCo is the incredibly popular soft drink Pepsi. Other than soda, though, PepsiCo also owns Quaker Oatmeal, Gatorade, Cheetos, Tropicana, Tostitos, Lays potato chips, and Starbucks ready to drink beverages. PepsiCo collected $62.8 billion in 2016.

Nestle

Incredibly, the Nestle Corporation took in an astonishing $90.2 billion in 2016. In addition to popular candy brands such as Butterfinger and KitKat, Nestle also owns Gerber baby food, Perrier, Coffee-Mate, DiGiorno, Hot Pockets, Friskies and Purina.

WELL, WELL, WELL! What do we have here? As many of you readers will recall, we’ve been all over the antifa girl who got rocked at the Berkeley protests this past weekend. We had her fake name (Louise Rosealma) listed in the big article, but her real name is Emily Rose Marshall. Every since she got smacked, the media has been working overtime to make this little terrorist into some kind of martyr. Virtue signallers like Raheem Kassam and Brandon Darby, people who this publication normally respects, have been crying about never hitting a woman, under any circumstances. The latter camp is goofy as hell on this issue, but the media is outright malicious.

Just read this snippet from the LA Times, in a piece designed to run Nathan Damigo (the guy who socked Ms. Marshall) off his college campus…

Damigo charged a diminutive woman who was involved in the fighting and punched her in the face, then ran away into the crowd.

“A diminutive woman.” OK. Sure. I wonder if we’ll be seeing any corrections from the LA Times and Chris “Captain America” Evans after this latest bit of evidence has come out. Guess what Precious Emily was doing all day? Throwing bottles at Trump/free speech supporters who came to Berkeley to exercise their constitutional rights. Keep in mind, this wasn’t a fight our side went looking for. Antifa showed up with the explicit intent to shut this thing down with violence.

Also, listen to this video. Right after Ms. Marshall gets cracked by Damigo, you can clearly hear a bottle break. https://youtu.be/tZPGOC7uqTE


If you look close enough, you can the bottle that broke falling out of her backpack, as documented by our own Seattle4Truth… https://youtu.be/tZPGOC7uqTE


Oh, and Reuters has a picture of her bottle as well…

You can also check out this gif, which shows that little angel Emily getting read to hit someone across their head with a fucking glass bottle

So, can this whole “you should never hit a woman” shit please go away once and for all? I’m sorry, but if a female is trying to hit me and/or my friends across the skull with a glass bottle, a little self-defense will have to come down on her, perhaps in the form of a well-placed fist.

Nathan Damigo did nothing wrong.

UPDATE: Here’s Precious Emily in a propaganda-like interview with CBS affiliate KPIX 5, which is broadcast out of San Francisco…  https://youtu.be/ukq3SGM7maU


She calls the attack unprovoked, doesn’t mention the bottles and fireworks being thrown at Trump/free speech supporters, and basically just completely lies her ass off for the whole interview. She does name the collective that she traveled to the event with, though. Here’s their logo…

Looks like a very peace-loving group, doesn’t it!
