  • Who is Alan Dershowitz?

    08/19/2018 6:31:43 PM PDT · by BEJ · 26 replies
    Alan Dershowitz says, "I prefer to be around Democrats who hate me than Republicans who love me." (49:03) What does that mean? Does it mean that Democrats who hate him will come up with more creative legal arguments because they are pissed off? Does Alan prefer hate filled Democrats because he enjoys the challenge of correcting their flawed ways of thinking? Does it mean that despite their hated he still wants to be accepted by Democrats -- like the prodigal son coming home to Martha's Vineyard? Does it mean that he is a phony on Fox News or Judge Jeanine...

    “I think that it would be handled very beautifully by me,” he said on “Howard Stern Show” in 2005p> Following reports that there are recordings of Donald Trump using racial slurs on “The Apprentice,” a 2005 radio interview with Howard Stern has resurfaced where Trump proposed setting “nine blacks against nine whites” on the show. “There was a concept thrown out by some person… nine blacks against nine whites,” Trump said on “The Howard Stern Show.” “And it would be nine blacks against nine whites, all highly educated, very smart, strong, beautiful people right?” he continued, asking Stern if he...
  • How Did John Brennan Ever Get A Security Clearance?

    IWB ^ | Ruby Henley
    President Trump had every reason to revoke Ex-CIA John Brennan’s security clearance. It should have been done a long time ago, considering his past testimony in which he stated “no evidence of Russian collusion.” The MSM is having a field day with this latest action by President Trump, and, of course, John Brennan is pouting like a spoiled little boy. He got caught by the President of the United States one too many times with the botched Russian collusion story. Lest he forget he is a CIA Director no more, but Donald Trump is the sitting President of the United...
  • If this HS cheerleading squad T-shirt is ‘racist’ then the term has no meaning anymore

    The National Sentinel ^ | 8/19/18 | USA Features
    Overused: These days, the term “racist” is used so often as a means of attacking anything having to do with an American traditional value that the term simply has no meaning anymore, and frankly that’s a shame because there are real racists out there. Louis Farrakhan, neo-Nazis, some BLM members and white supremacists come to mind. But when a T-shirt is called “racist” simply because it contains references to Americana — and the accuser believed and taken seriously just because they’re a minority, then “racist” has no meaning anymore.
  • If I Wanted To Destroy A Society, I Would Do This…

    08/19/2018 10:23:53 AM PDT · by Pavegecko · 16 replies ^ | 8/19/18 | L Todd Wood
    If I wanted to destroy an enemy society, and had a long-term focus, wanted to do it stealthily, and effectively, to make the society destroy itself and the ability to defend itself, I would do the following: 1. I would destroy the religious ideals that built the country and held it together, allowing it to thrive and be exceptional. In short, I would destroy Christianity in the West. 2. I would destroy the family, the fabric of society. I would tear apart the nuclear family, that produced stable children, future contributors to the nation’s wealth and power. I would promote...
  • We Are Witnessing Peak Big-Tech Collusion, Censorship

    08/19/2018 9:06:16 AM PDT · by Pavegecko · 16 replies ^ | 8/19/18 | Yuri Vanetik
    Take a step back and a deep breath and look around you. We are right now witnessing extreme censorship, political favoritism, and tyrannical behavior by the big technology companies. This will not stand. It will not last. Besides an anti-trust perspective, the silencing of conservative voices cannot, and will not, be tolerated by the Untied States of America. Burdened by the world’s problems to date, the Trump administration has been seemingly silent on the issue. However, that seems to be changing. The banning of Alex Jones across the web, done in a tyrannical, monopolistic fashion, has shown these companies have...
  • FIREFOX browsers will soon block “fake news” flagged by George Soros-linked left-wing groups

    What’s become abundantly clear over the past few months is that liberals are now jumping on the anti-fake news bandwagon and using it as an excuse to censor political speech that doesn’t align with their radical agenda. This strategy is perhaps most prominent on social media and various websites across the Internet, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and is implemented by teams of leftists and extremists like George Soros who show zero regards for the freedom of speech outlined in the First Amendment. It’s as if the ability to control what information is spread across the Internet and what information...

    The accusations that Democratic National Committee vice chairman Keith Ellison sexually abused two women may become the latest case of social mores butting up against religious freedom. DNC chairman Tom Perez reminded critics of Ellison’s behavior that “imposition of Christian standards of behavior on a Muslim man violate the First Amendment protection against government infringement on the free exercise of religion.” “Under Islam, a man has total dominance over a woman,” Perez observed. “First, under sharia law, a woman is effectively only half as human as a man. Using this math, each of the accusers’ testimony is out weighed by...

    True competition for African American votes may take many years to accomplish, but those important first steps may be starting right now The liberal mainstream news media have a narrative about Donald Trump and they do not deviate. The constant refrain is that the President is unhinged, idiotic, tyrannical and especially racist. Recently, the President was labeled a racist when he criticized CNN’s Don Lemon and NBA star LeBron James. Their latest obsession is the new book written by fired White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman.

    Just wait until It’s Free “There is no such thing as a free lunch, someone has to pay for it.” The American socialist politicians are promising their voting constituents Free Stuff through such figures as Bernie Sanders, the politician from Vermont whose economic fortunes have improved drastically since he ran for president, and the socialist Cortez from the Bronx who, although she has a degree from a prestigious and very expensive school, does not know anything about Economics or geopolitics, by her own admission, and shows her lack of knowledge every time she opens her mouth.

    One wonders how close to the fine line of treason the mainstream media folks like Lester Holt are truly dancing along when it comes to how they report I don’t normally watch the alphabet networks or liberal left media outlets. While up north in Oregon, however, a person I am visiting is fond of NBC. During a commercial earlier in the day, yesterday, advertising the upcoming episode of the network’s NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, the host looked me in the eye through the camera lens and my television screen and said, “The president is revoking security clearances of...

    <p>No, it’s not the progressives. Many on the left are true cop-haters from the get go. A prime example of how the left detest police (unless they become victims of a crime and squeal like the cowards they are) occurred during the recent Ontario election campaign. Gurrant Singh, brother of federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, was a star candidate for the NDP. It was revealed he once carried a sign in a demonstration that read “F**K the POLICE.” Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath saw nothing wrong with that. Neither did the rest of her radical caucus.</p>

  • Are We A Republic or A Democracy?

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    If you’ve tuned into the news lately, you have undoubtedly noticed quite the commotion over democracy. It is supposedly under attack by the Russians. It is also said to be under attack by Trump. And with the litany of daily articles and TV reports on these subjects, someone inevitably responds with “it’s a republic, not a democracy.” But I can’t help but think these comments are based on theory instead of reality. Yes, it is true that our government was originally set up as a republic. This basically meant that the dominant governing force was the US Constitution, which took...
  • Merkel Colludes With Putin To Get Russian Gas

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Meseberg, Germany but the meeting produced ‘no agreements’ except an agreement to collude with Russia to get Russian cheap gas piped into Germany. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters no agreements were reached, but the meeting had simply been intended to “check the watches” after Merkel’s meeting with Putin in the Black Sea resort of Sochi in May, reported Reuters. The two leaders both viewed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project as a purely commercial venture, despite persistent fire by the U.S. and Ukrainian governments, Peskov said.

  • Russia Offer To Lease 2.5 Million Acres To China In Siberia…Question Is, Will They Get It Back?

    In an effort to thwart American efforts to punish Russia for malign behavior and confront the administration’s efforts to change China’s trade strategy, Russia has offered to lease 2.5M acres of land in the Russian Far East to China for agriculture development. Russia has made 1 million hectares (2.5 million acres) of arable land available to foreign investors – and while that could be boon for Beijing as it struggles with limited supplies of soybeans in its trade war with the US, analysts are concerned about the quality of the plots available. Valery Dubrovskiy, director of investment for the Far...

After repeatedly commanding Givens to drop the gun, eight officers opened fire, according to the official account. Givens was transported to...
