TRUMPS ANTI-GLOBALISM U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY SPEECH

Trump brushes off laughing UN audience,
doubles down on ‘America First’

President Trump was met with awkward laughter from a U.N. General Assembly audience on Tuesday while boasting of successes under his administration, but brushed off the response as he doubled down on an “America First” agenda at the globalist body.
Trump prompted laughter and gasps from the audience when he claimed that “in less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”  “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” he chuckled in response.
But as Trump stood in the symbolic heart of global governance, he espoused an unashamedly nationalist doctrine that underscored his administration’s tensions with the U.N.
“We will never surrender American sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable global bureaucracy. America is governed by Americans,” he said. “We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.”  He later added that “America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control and domination.”
He echoed a similar theme from his 2017 address, when he called on all countries to put their own interests first: “The United States will not tell you how to live, work or worship. We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.”  Trump not only hailed U.S. economic achievements under his leadership, but also achievements on the international stage. He cited developments with North Korea and victories over the Islamic State, and called on the international community to join the U.S. in cracking down on Iran and Syria.
AT UN, TRUMP CALLS ON WORLD LEADERS TO ‘ISOLATE’ IRANIAN REGIME
But Trump also warned that he would act only in the interests of the U.S., particularly when it came to funding.“We are only going to give foreign aid to countries who respect us, and frankly, are our friends,” he told the audience, which consisted of a number of world leaders of countries that receive U.S. aid.

Texas State Board of Education Testimony

Truth in Textbooks representatives testified at the Texas State Board of Education on Sept 11 where the SBOE heard testimony on removing items from the  Texas Essential Knowledge Skills.

There were many recommendations that were strongly opposed to by TNT and other groups.  Here are just a few:
1. Removal of the term “Judeo-Christian” from the standards
2. Removal of any references to Moses and the influence of Mosaic law into the forming of America’s legal system
3. Removal of the term “religious” from the list of influences on America’s founding
4. Removal of Arab countries resistance in recognizing Israel as a country as the major contributor to the current Israel-Arab conflict
5. Removal of the term “concept” and replaced with “theory” when it comes to describing “a free market system”
6. Removal of any references to the Verona Papers related to the McCarthy hearings in the 50’s
7. Removal of the identifying Taiwan and replacing it with the term that the Chinese have forced countries/companies to use, Republic of China (Taiwan). 
8.  Removal of multiple Founding Fathers that have been traditionally taught to students. 
9. Removal of the term “heroic” in Texas history books when discussing the men of the Alamo. 
10. Removal of the term “identify the positives and negative effects of cultural diffusion” (this allows multiculturalism to go unchallenged)
….and much more.  
Over 60 individuals testified during the hearing. Many progressive groups were represented speaking in support of some of the changes that would remove all references to Christianity. 
I’m pleased to report that so far the items addressed by TNT and other conservative groups may survive this first review and the items that were to be removed will remain…at this time.   
The SBOE is making changes to the proposed changes (adding back items that were removed) and will have one more public hearing on November 13 before any permanent changes are made. 
TNT will continue to monitor this and ask for support in making sure items of interest remain within the TEKS. 
 With Texas textbooks being purchased by other states, this victory will benefit children in many other states that choose Texas textbooks as their standard in the future.

Florida Seeking Help – Please Respond

BE A DOER, NOT A TALKER – PUSH BACK 

TNT  will be reviewing 5 social studies textbooks covering elementary school social studies, middle school U.S. History, world history, u.s. government, and High School U.S. History.   

We need 20-25 reviewers to begin reviewing the online books.  We would hope to begin the review by the end of September and will complete the reviews by the end of October.   

If you are hesitant to sign up because you haven’t reviewed textbooks for awhile or are afraid you have forgotten our procedures, the information below will allow you to review the TNT protocols and regain your currency and familiarity via YouTube videos with how to conduct the training.  

TNT is providing the Florida Citizens Alliance with this information in order to push back against the progressive agenda found in many of these textbooks.  Because of past efforts, a lawsuit has been brought against one of the Florida school districts for failing to abide by Florida state standards.  Without the effort of past TNT reviewers, this would not be happening.    

If you can help out, please email tnt.textbooks@gmail.com and indicate your particular area of interest and we will send out a Basecamp invitation to get everyone organized.   

Exciting News – Truth in Textbooks Moves Training to YouTube 

TNT is excited to announce a new training regime that will allow volunteers to complete their training in a far more efficient and expeditious manner. 

If you are interested in becoming a reviewer, this video will tell you how.  

 Click the YouTube video below.    

 TNT has been training volunteers as textbook reviewers since 2014 using conference calls primarily with assigned readings between each call.  

These conference calls occurred over a period of 2 months which stretched out the training which led to many people dropping out.

Audio problems, inevitable technical problems along with scheduling issues such as availability (along with my flying schedule)  added to the frustration felt by some. It was less than perfect but it was all that we had.  

Thanks to Dr Alfonsi who traveled to Texas earlier this month to record the videos, a series of 18 YouTube training sessions totaling a little under 5 1/2 hrs of instruction, TNT is now happy to rollout this training. 

At the conclusion of the self-paced training each person will still conduct a “mock review” as has been our practice in the past which will consist of 4 weeks. This will allow persons to condense the training from the previous 3 months to as little as 5 weeks or less!
We believe the quality of the training is superior to what was done before so we urge you to share this video with your friends who maybe interested.  Overview and FAQ about Truth in Textbooks (click on)   

RECURRENT TRAINING FOR PREVIOUSLY TRAINED REVIEWERS 

If you attended any our training in the past and are considering volunteering again in the near future, please consider writing to TNT at truthintextbooks@gmail.com to request the list of video links to the training.  This list is only available to those who have gone through the training previously so please indicate in your email when you attended training.    

We apologize for the delay in getting back to those who have expressed interest in becoming a volunteer or who wanted to start training in July.   We will be in touch with you personally and will send you the first link to begin the training.  You do not need to complete another survey to start your training.   

Caution strong sexual content! AMERICA – PARENTS WE HAVE A PROBLEM IN AMERICA’S SCHOOLS OF MAJOR PROPORTIONS!

Public Schools Giving Children Access To Hardcore Porn

Thousands of government schools across America are giving children direct access to hard-core pornographic images and content through a third-party vendor, sparking outrage among parents. But more than a year after the scandal first erupted surrounding giving porn to kids, just one public school out of thousands has put a stop to it, according to WND.
The firm in question, EBSCO Information Services, has been pumping graphic porn into schools across America — material that includes “group, anal, public, and BDSM sex,” according to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. Listing EBSCO on its sexual-exploitation “Dirty Dozen List,” the watchdog group accused the company of helping “normalize sexual violence.”
One of the problematic examples depicted the rape of a woman using the barrel of a gun, the NCSE said. The material includes promotion of homosexuality, homosexual pornography, information on “sex toys,” instructions on how to have oral, anal, and vaginal sex, masturbation, and more. “Just say yes,” reads the headline on one of the pages urging pre-pubescent children to engage in sodomy. One page encourages children to insert vegetables or fists into each others’ orifices, tie each other up, and cross-dress.

 

Children as young as 10- and 11-year old middle school students were exposed to the filthy, perverted, and demented sexual content, screenshots captured by parents and activists confirmed. Parents, by contrast, were barred from inspecting it. “The material is omitted from the parents’ accounts and is only available through the children’s’ accounts,” explained Mass Resistance, a pro-family group that helped expose the obscene material being pumped into government middle schools.
And this is hardly an isolated phenomenon — it has been happening in government schools across America. Indeed, some 55,000 schools are confirmed as working with the obscenity-peddling company, according to watchdogs. All of it is potentially in violation of criminals laws prohibiting the provision of obscene materials to children.
Under pressure from parents and the Thomas More Society, though, at least one district, the Denver-area Cherry Creek School District, has officially stopped giving this filth to children. That leaves many thousands of schools all over the country that continue to maintain some sort of relationship with the company providing porn and promoting perversion to youngsters.
Parents are deeply misinformed if they think they can trust the government schools with the care and protection of their children. In fact, instead of protecting the children, government schools are doing everything possible to deliberately sexualize them and indoctrinate them, with catastrophic consequences for the individuals and society at large. This is criminal. It should not be tolerated.

THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST PARTY

         The Liberal Democrat Party (AKA The New American Progressive Socialist Party)

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 24, 2018: Op Ed # 403
The below listed1944 quote by the 6 time Presidential candidate of the Socialist Party of America, Norman Thomas, is an accurate prediction that today’s Liberal Democratic Party (AKA The American Progressive Socialist Party) will support Socialism:
 “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism.  But under the name of Liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist Program, until one day, America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.  I no longer need to run for the Socialist Party of America, the Democrat Party has adopted our platform.” 
 Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson would not recognize the actions, policies, and leadership of the once honorable Patriotic Democrat Party.  Today’s Democrat Party leaders do not support the US Free Enterprise System, that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, nor do they support a Republic governed by the US Constitution. The Democratic Party has  been compromised by radical zealots who support a “Progressive” Marxist philosophy; they’ve taken control as explained below.  
 In the 2000 Presidential election campaign, a coalition of Radical Leftists, “Progressives”, Socialists, Marxists, Communists,  and Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, who do not support or protect the US Constitution, joined forces to defeat Texas Governor George Bush; they were unsuccessful in a hard fought campaign, the conflicts that resulted in that campaign linger to this day.
 Americans must be informed who “Progressives” are.  The “Progressive” philosophy was created in the 1840s  by Karl Marx and German Philosopher George Wilhelm Hegel.  Their “Progressive” Marxist philosophy can be summarized by a simple statement “Everything is formed by the process of change.”  Since the 1960s, left leaning public schools teachers and radical college professors, have adopted the “Progressive” Marxist philosophy, and  have been indoctrinating their immature American students in Marxism. 
 Radical teachers and professors have been seeding doubt in the minds of American students about the relevance the 231 year old US Constitution.  By teaching students that although the US Constitution was compatible and relevant to govern when adopted by Congress 231 years ago, but because it has remained relatively unchanged since 1787, with only 27 Amendments, it has not been in “the process of change” to remain effective, “Progressives” believe the US Constitution is no longer current to bed able  to govern the United States.  
 Public School teachers and college professors, who identify themselves as “Progressives”, have been teaching students, that the US Constitution is no longer relevant and current to govern; they encourage their students to accept Socialism.   Socialism is an economic system where everyone in the society equally owns the factors of production; it promotes support for the collective.  Socialism does not promote individual success, or the “Inalienable right of man” that the Founding Fathers emphasized in the US Constitution, and gave  to posterity.  “Progressives” don’t support being governed by the US Constitution, they support Socialism and the Marxist philosophy.    
 In the 2004 Presidential election campaign, that same 2000 radical left coalition, strengthened by many more student who had been indoctrinated in the “Progressives” Marxist philosophy, by support from La Raza, the Socialists Party of America, and financial support of George Soros’ Pro-Communist “Open Society Foundation”; they again tried to defeat President George Bush, but they fell short.   
 In 2008 Presidential election campaign, the same 2004  radical left coalition that tried to unseat President Bush in 2004, was further strengthened by the Weatherman Underground, Black Lives Matter, Micha, the Revolution Communist Party, the New Black Panther Party, the Nation of Islam, Answer, Antifa, The World Workers Party, the National Action Network, Any Means Necessary, Act Blue, Casa de Maryland, Ultra Violet, Color of Change, Indivisible, SIEU, and the Progressive Unity Fund.  Five days  prior to Barrack Hussein Obama’s election, he said “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
 For 8 years, the left of center liberal media establishment, covered up the Obama administration’s “Progressive” Marist philosophy, and the hid the makeup of the radical left coalition that elected Obama’s  from American citizens.  The liberal media establishment promoted the “Progressives” Marxist philosophy, as an forward thinking philosophy, only designed to improve government. 
 Immigrations Laws passed by Congress weren’t enforced, the Social Experiment On Diversity weakened the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces, revised fake US History books were required to be used in the “Progressive” Common Core curriculum in order to obtain educational financial aid to the states from DOE, new & dangerous Rules Of Engagement resulted in heavy casualties in Afghanistan, heavy taxes coupled with new oppressive business & environmental  regulation crippled the economy, oppressive identity policies divided Americans by races, religion, and gender, law enforcement officers was repeatedly vilified and attacked.
 The same coalition that re-elected Obama in 2012, campaigned for Hillary in 2016.  That radical leftist coalition was joined by Obama’s “Organization For Action”.  Millions of millennials who had been indoctrinated in the “Progressive” Marxist philosophy, cast more votes in the 2016 primary elections for the Bernie Sander’s Socialist campaign, than for the combined Clinton Democrat and the Trump Republican Campaigns.  The “Progressive” Marxist indoctrination that continues in public schools and colleges today, is projected to result in increased millenniums support for Socialist candidates in the 2018 midterm elections, their numbers will increase in 2020.  
 Over the last 25 years, the left of center liberal media establishment has covered up the dramatic shift in the Liberal Democrat Party to the left, and how it was being aggressively radicalized by Leftist and Marxists inserted in the Democrat Central Committee during the 8 years of the Obama administration, and how the “Progressive” Marxist philosophy was instilled and adopted by the Democrat Party.
 Obama selected Tom Perez as Chairman, and Congressman  Keith Ellison (D-MN) as Deputy Chairman of the Democratic Central Committee.  They are both radical Anti-Semitic, Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, and “Progressive” Marxists party leaders.  By selecting Perez and Ellison, Obama put the Constitutional Republic under siege “Within The Wire”, and continued to drive the Democratic Party toward Socialism, knowing that Socialism is Marxist inspired, and that for over 100 years, Socialism has never worked in any country.
 Tom Perez was Obama’s radical left Labor Secretary.  He has a long history of anti-white views, including making the declaration that “White people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.” Perez was the longtime leader of Cas de Maryland, a militant Communist, pro-Illegal Alien rights group.  When Perez was the leader of Casa de Maryland, Hugo Chavez, the Communist President of Venezuela, and protege of Fidel Castro, was sending Perez $1 million each year, while directing Perez to use those funds to keep the US Southern Border wide open, to allow Iranian Terrorists, and Cubans & Venezuela Communists to enter with Illegal Aliens.
 Tom Perez previously served as Assistant Attorney General, under Attorney General Eric Holder.  In 2008, he dropped charges filed against New Black Panther Party thugs, armed with clubs, who were intimidating white voters trying to cast ballots in Philadelphia.  He supported Holder’s policies of refusing to enforce US Immigrations Laws.  In the “Fast and Furious Operation”, he supported Holder’s massive illegal sale of weapons to Mexican Drug cartels, resulting in the murder of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.  Perez supported Holder’s refusal to allow an investigation of massive voter fraud charges that were filed during the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections.  Those actions, led Congress to vote Holder, as the first Attorney General in 240 years, to be held “In Contempt of Congress.”
 Ambassador Armand Valladares, the former US Ambassador to the UN for Human Rights, identified Perez as a racist who hates the Bible, and is Anti-Semitic.  He stated that Perez’s goals are to destroy the US Free Enterprise System, the Christian Society of the US, and wants to turn the US into a Marxist nation. 
 Six term Cong Keith Ellison, the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee is Anti-Semitic, Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, has been openly supporting  ANTIFA on the Internet, and is a member of the Nation of Islam; he is currently running for Attorney General of Minnesota.  As a member of the Muslim faith, Ellison believes in Shariah Law, and stated that he does not respect the US Constitution, because “Its wording was inspired by the Bible.”  For many years, Ellison has been working very closely with Louis Farrakhan, the rabid Anti-Semitic and anti-white leader of the Nation of Islam.  For over 10 years, Ellison has been closely associated with CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist Organization; they paid for Ellison’s pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.
 Ellison declared himself a supporter, ally, and defender of Communist Terrorists,  He organized a fundraising event for Communist Terrorist, Sara Jane Olson, a member of the Communist Movement, Symbionese Liberation Army.  Ellison defends Joanne Chesimard (AKA Assata Shakur), who is wanted by the FBI for murdering a police officer, and is is currently opposing extradition from her safe haven in Communist Cuba.  For many years, Ellison has been close to the Communist Party USA—even holding fundraising events in the home of Erwin Marquit, The Chairman of Minnesota’s Communist Party.  
 The Democrat Party continues to ignore and refuses to investigate live-in girlfriend, Karen Monahan’s, repeated accusation that Ellison sexually harassed and physically assaulted her, over a 2 year period.  Karen’s son, Austin Monahan, wrote on a Facebook Post that Ellison abused his “mama”, and that he watched a video of Ellison dragging his mother out of bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a F______ Bitch, and telling her to get the F___ out of his house. 
 The refusal by Democrat Party to investigate Ellison assaults is an example of the Democrat Party’s double faced approach to sexual abuse.  Compare it with the 36 year old groping allegation against Judge Kavanaugh by a Resist Trump Activist photographed in a pink hat during one of her many Never Trump street demonstrations.  She said the groping happened in an unknown location, on an unknown date, in an unknown year, and said there were 4 witnesses, who all said it never happened at all.
 Ambassador Valladares stated that “The  two leaders of the Democrat National Committee are both racist, Anti-Semitic, ignore the US Constitution, and ignore the US History.”  Ambassador Valladares said “They both have been allies of terrorists movements,  They have shared the hatred for the United States and its laws.  They complement each other in their hatred of the Bible.”  Ambassador Valladares said, “They wish to sweep away this American society, with ideological  street mobs, terrorists, communists, radical Muslims, and the scum of the country, whose goal it is to destroy the nation; with the complicit silence of the former Democrat Party leaders, they took possession of the party.”
 Prior to the 2012 Presidential campaign to re-elect Obama, for the first time in history, Perez and Ellison took “God” out of the Democrat Party Platform.  Perez and Ellison have been colluding with “Progressives”, Leftists, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, and the Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist to oppose the Judeo/Christian philosophies, upon which the Republic was founded.  They degrade family values, and have been aggressively promoting the initiative to eliminate the gender of children on birth certificates. 
 Today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of members of the Greatest Generation, or of my father and grandfather, it is strongly Socialist—-much worse,  If the Democrats take control of Congress, they would assault some basic liberties given to Americans for posterity by the Founding Fathers, liberties that are unique and vital to the survival and good order of the Republic,  like support for the 2nd Amendment, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, The Free Enterprise System, closing the wide open Southern Border, Congress to actually obey the laws it passed, the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance, funding a budget to rebuild the hollowed out US Armed Forces, Freedom of Speech (not for Political Correctness), voter IDs to defeat massive voter fraud, etc. 
 Approximately 80 members of the 435 member House of Representative have formed a “Progressive” Democrat Caucus,  founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders.  When the Pledge of Allegiance is supposed to be recited in Congress by all 435 members, the members of the “Progressive” Democrat Caucus  refuse to rise and participate in the Pledge.  There are plenty of photos on the Internet showing them sitting, while hundreds of members of Congress are standing with their right hands over their hearts reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
 The Democrat Party has moved dangerously to the far left in support of Socialism and Marxism.  If the Democrat Party (AKA the New American Progressive Socialist Party) takes control of Congress in the 2018 midterm election, Perez, Ellison, Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, and Valerie Jarret, will continue to try to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America” to a “Progressive” Marxist Socialist State, while trying to accomplish their oft repeated threat to impeach of President Donald J. Trump.
 All Americans who care about  the stability of Republic must vote against the election of radical “Progressive” Marxist candidates.

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR LIFE? YOU REALLY NEED TO ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION!

People Nowadays

This eye-opening video about our addiction to the Internet might just leave you speechless. I make my living on the Internet and for that reason, I try to limit the time that I spend online because I realize after a certain point it becomes a mindless activity. I can promise you that life does exist if you aren’t checking your phone every fifteen minutes for the latest updates or sitting in front of your computer all day long. My advice would be to step away from your Device of Delusion and get outside where you can Live, Love, Laugh, and Enjoy Life!

DO THE COMPARISON DO YOU WANT A FREE REPUBLIC JUDAEO – CHRISTIAN BASED OR A SOCIALIST CONTROLLED STATE

THE CHOICE IS YOUR- BETTER MAKE THE RIGHT ONE!

Odd, isn’t it, that 100 percent of the women coming forward with sexual assault and harassment stories decades after they supposedly took place are all connected,  in one way or another to the Democrats?

Asking the #MeToo Movement: Are only Democrat Women Sexually Assaulted and Harassed?

Judi McLeod imageBy Judi McLeod

The once silver-tongued Obama is not only losing his voice, he’s losing his rock star status and crowd support.

Odd, isn’t it, that 100 percent of the women coming forward with sexual assault and harassment stories decades after they supposedly took place are all connected,  in one way or another to the Democrats?  Take a look out over the horizon and you won’t find even one Republican victim of sexual assault or harassment coming forward during the Midterm Election campaign.
Could that be because the #MeToo movement only embraces Democrat Damsels in Distress?

Are sexual predators only attacking Democrats?

Is there no known antidote to stop them in their tracks?

That’ it’s only happening to Democrat-associated women is just one little detail never mentioned by the mainstream and social media.

In the midst of the ranting, raving and screaming backup for Christine Blasey Ford, about whom it is being said, she “doesn’t have a political bone in her body”, there’s an embarrassing little detail rarely, if ever, mentioned in the media:  fading rock star Barack Obama, the indisputable ‘Me, Myself and I, I,Guy’ drew a crowd of only 700 to his recent rally in Anaheim, California

To see how far the mighty has fallen, compare Obama’s 700 to President Donald Trump’s 20,000 at his rallies.

Not only is Ford dominating the news as Stormy Daniels did, for Ford,  outfoxing Republicans like the incredibly stupid Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, is akin to taking candy from a baby.  Evidence, her driving from California to D.C., reason for which is that she’s a nervous flyer.

Hey, Chuck! Flying to Washington, D.C. would bring her in to give testimony against Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh within hours.  Of course,  she then wouldn’t have been able to play her stalling game by not being available for the better part of a week.

“Reports have indicated Ford intends to drive cross-country from her California home to Washington, DC, a journey that will take a minimum of three days at best. (Deadline, Sept. 22, 2018)

“According to the New York Times, the date has not been set in stone as Ford’s lawyers and aides to Senator Charles E. Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, are planning to talk Sunday about the testimony.

“However, as of Saturday, the testimony has been penciled in for Thursday. If no deal is solidified, Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination could move ahead on Monday as scheduled.

“Ford has reportedly told friends she is uncomfortable in confined spaces, indicating a physical difficulty in making the trip by plane.”

For Ford being “uncomfortable in confined spaces” does not include being cradled in a Democrat one.
“Ford’s attorney, Debra Katz, called the earlier Friday deadline an attempt to “bully” her client. (Politico, Sept. 21, 2018
“Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family,” Katz wrote in an email.
“Democrats lashed out at Grassley for what their top member on the committee, Dianne Feinstein, also described as “bullying.” And Ford’s attorneys reminded Grassley on Friday night that while the GOP was accelerating the deadline for her to respond, the California-based professor was meeting with the FBI about threats she’d received since coming forward.

“The imposition of aggressive and artificial deadlines regarding the date and conditions of any hearing has created tremendous and unwarranted anxiety and stress on Dr. Ford,” Katz wrote. “Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the Committee is completely inappropriate.”

“Grassley’s office did not return a request for comment on the Friday night response from Ford’s attorneys.

“However, late Friday, Grassley tweeted: “Five times now we have granted extension for Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed with her desire stated one week ago that she wants to tell senate her story.  Dr Ford if you changed your mind say so so we can move on.  I want to hear your testimony. Come to us or we to you.”

“Minutes later, he added: “Judge Kavanaugh I just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed with the statement she made last week to testify to the senate.  She should decide so we can move on.  I want to hear her. I hope you understand. It’s not my normal approach to be indecisive.”

“Grassley followed with a candid lament that he was being outmaneuvered by Democrats: “With all the extensions we give Dr Ford to decide if she still wants to testify to the Senate I feel like I’m playing 2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra and [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer is the conductor.”

That’s because you are, Sen. Grassley.

Meanwhile while Ford and her cohorts are holding the stage front and center,  Obama seems to be resorting to the old standby of offence being the best defence at his small-crowd campaign rallies.

‘Obama snaps at young rally attendees: ‘I’m talking to you! You! Pay attention!’ was the American Mirror headline after Friday’s Philadelphia,Pa rally.  “Barack Obama wasn’t happy those young whipper snappers apparently weren’t hanging on his every word (about himself) on Friday.  “I’m talking to you, young people!” he snapped, pointing his finger with a stern look at some kids attending his rally for Pennsylvania Democrats.

“You! Pay attention!” he lectured with the air of a disappointed parent.

“During the Philadelphia appearance for Gov. Tom Wolf, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and several Democrat congressional candidates, Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself.  “In the roughly 33-minute remarks, the former president said “I” 56 times, “Me” 5 times, and “My” 4 times, talking about himself a total of 65 times, or once about every 30 seconds.

“At one point, he admitted he was losing his voice because he was talking so much.”The once silver-tongued Obama is not only losing his voice, he’s losing his rock star status and crowd support.

Is it really any wonder that the Dems are now out digging for gold in Democrat women sexually assaulted and harassed by Republican men?

HERE IS WHAT THE SPLINTERED DEMOCRATIC AND DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST OF AMERICA (DSA) PARTY
WANT FOR AMERICA UNDER THE NAME OF SOCIALISM:

  • They want to abolishing the prison system.
  • They want to abolish I.C.E.
  • One candidate  wants an end to a cash bail system 
  • NO freebies to Non-Citizens!FROM THE DSA  Web Site: Those of us who declare ourselves socialists must reaffirm our radicalism, envision a truly revolutionary anti-capitalist future. Social democrats are celebrating the 200th birthday of Karl Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883), founder and theoretician of socialism.  

    Marxists employed the term “socialism” in place of “communism” by 1888 They are one in the same.  Many of our brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents died to keep this country from becoming a communist nation. Today we have an indoctrinated Millennial group who has little to no knowledge of the battles this an many other nations fought to prevent what is happening today from occurring.

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BECOME THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF AMERICA OR  DSA DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST OF AMERICA ( Socialism = Communist) THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY ALLOWS THESE PEOPLE TO RUN UNDER THE DEMOCRATIC LABEL & AND SUPPORT’s THEM!

    They are falling in line with Declared Socialist countries like: Laos, Vietnam, Cuba, China , Guyana, India, Boliva, Uruguay, North Korea, Ecuador!

    46 Democratic socialist candidates and two DSA-backed ballot measures have won their primaries in 2018

  •   4 for the U.S. House – The rest for state Office

  • 20 candidates this year in Texas who are affiliated with the DSA,

  •   8 Democrats In Pittsburgh, in this year’s midterm cycle sought the endorsement of the local D.S.A. chapter.

  •  4 Candidates Tulsa, Okla., willing to run as Democratic socialists 

THINK TWICE WHEN YOU ENTER THAT BALLOT BOX IN NOVEMBER
ESPECIALLY IN FLORIDA,
DO YOU REALLY WANT A COMMUNIST LED STATE GOVERNMENT!

The “Newspeak” of Orwell’s 1984 is here.

The Ravages of Leftist Thought Control

The “Newspeak” of Orwell’s 1984 is here.

On September 12, 2018 the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) posted an article in its official website, Twitter Ads Rejects Tweets for “Hateful Content.”
The CIS article noted:

Yesterday Twitter rejected four Center for Immigration Studies tweets for use in the Center’s Twitter Ads campaign, alleging hateful content. (Several others were approved.) All four tweets use the statutory phrases “illegal alien” or “criminal alien,” and all of the tweets referenced law enforcement, either at the border or in the interior. One of the tweets contained a powerful Daily Caller video showing illegal aliens in camouflage carrying large backpacks across the border unimpeded.

Two days later, on September 14th The Daily Caller posted a report updating the situation: Twitter Allows Center For Immigration Studies To Promote Tweets About Illegal Aliens That Were Previously Rejected.
Twitter apparently reversed its decision when Mark Krikorian, the Director of CIS, appeared on Fox News to discuss the issue.
Here is an excerpt from The Daily Caller article:  The four tweets that could not get promoted, but are still on Twitter, contained the terms “alien,” “illegal alien” or “criminal alien” along with reference to law enforcement, according to a statement from CIS Wednesday.

A promoted tweet is a normal tweet bought by advertisers that can have a greater outreach on people, according to Twitter’s website.

“After two days of media coverage and no response to our question on what caused the denial, Twitter has approved the tweets,” CIS Director of Communications Marguerite Telford told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Turns out media coverage transforms tweets with ‘hateful content’ into acceptable tweets. But what if the story is not covered by The Daily Caller and Fox News? Present social media policies promote inconsistent, secret filtering policies that can and do block what is often just one side of important public debates.”

CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday to discuss the promotion ban along with what the organization did to find out why its tweets were considered as hateful.

“We looked at them and they all had ‘illegal alien’ or ‘criminal alien’ in them,” Krikorian told Carlson. “And so we said, ‘That must be it.’ What we did is sent them a nice note, and said, ‘Please let us know specifically what’s hateful about this because other ones weren’t that you did accept money for.’”

While it is important to note that Twitter reversed its decision, there is no cause for joy but consternation that this happened at all.
Twitter is a widely used means of communication.  It has become a virtual town square and its managers have total control over who gets to stand on the “soapbox.”
As Twitter notes, A promoted tweet is a normal tweet bought by advertisers that can have a greater outreach on people. 
In other words, promoting a tweet is the equivalent of providing a megaphone to the person or advertiser to reach more people.  Consequently, denying the speaker the use of that megaphone muffles the message.  Americans have foolishly come to blame the widespread censorship of language as examples of “Political Correctness.”  This is a dangerous notion.  Political Correctness (PC) was originally sold to Americans as a way of being polite by not using insulting or humiliating language.
However, this has now morphed into a means of thought control through the control of language.
Humans think with words. When you eliminate words, you eliminate the thoughts that the words represent.  All that is required is that a term, such as “alien” be branded “hate speech” by an unknown arbiter of language, and it is scrubbed from the vernacular.
There is absolutely nothing fair or compassionate about this.
Last year I wrote an article about how this now threatens the very foundation of our nation, Language Wars: The Road to Tyranny Is Paved with Language Censorship.
Across the United States “Safe Spaces” have been created on college campuses that stifle free speech and debate.  My degree was in Communications Arts and Sciences.  I participated in debates in high school and college and had I not become a federal agent, I had given serious consideration to teaching debate on the college level.  Debate is a celebration of the First Amendment that creates a sort of free market for ideas, a form of intellectual capitalism, where the participants bring their ideas to the marketplace of public opinion where all sides can express their thoughts freely.
Through this process the ideas that have greater merit are likely to advance.  It is easier to promote bad ideas when there are no alternatives.  Hence, we have “Safe Spaces” that are anything but “safe.”  Twitter is not alone in this totalitarian method of stifling free speech.
The Associated Press (AP) has issued a Style Book to not only guide writers in consistent use of punctuation and footnoting, but in purportedly acceptable language.  “Illegal alien” is not deemed acceptable for AP and, as they advertise on their website, their Style Book can be found in boardrooms, classrooms and newsrooms across America.  Control of language, coupled with extreme surveillance of its citizens that included the installation of telescreens (television monitoring devices) in the citizens’ homes that broadcast a constant barrage of programming from the omnipresent “Big Brother” created the ultimate police state in Orwell’s 1984.
Today our cell phones and other devices that apparently eavesdrop on us, are far more intrusive than Orwell could have envisioned.
A detailed explanation of Newspeak is found in the following excerpt from the Appendix to Orwell’s novel, under the title The Principles of NewspeakWhile admittedly a bit lengthy, it provides a clear explanation and warning as to just how dangerous and insidious Newspeak and other such censorship is:

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc (English Socialist Party) but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought — that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc — should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. Its vocabulary was so constructed as to give exact and often very subtle expression to every meaning that a Party member could properly wish to express, while excluding all other meanings and also the possibility of arriving at them by indirect methods. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meanings whatever. To give a single example. The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as ‘This dog is free from lice’ or ‘This field is free from weeds’. It could not be used in its old sense of ‘politically free’ or ‘intellectually free’ since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed even as concepts, and were therefore of necessity nameless.

Quite apart from the suppression of definitely heretical words, reduction of vocabulary was regarded as an end in itself, and no word that could be dispensed with was allowed to survive. Newspeak was designed not to extend but to diminish the range of thought, and this purpose was indirectly assisted by cutting the choice of words down to a minimum.  Two years ago I wrote an analysis of the origins of eliminating the term “Alien” from discussions about immigration in my article,  Jimmy Carter: Originator of the Orwellian Term “Undocumented Immigrant.”

Not only did Carter alter the language used by immigration enforcement agents, he even ordered INS agents not to arrest illegal aliens during the Census in the population centers with the greatest number of illegal aliens.  Those areas tended to vote for Democratic candidates and would gain more seats in the House of Representatives and hence, more votes in the Electoral College by getting more illegal aliens counted.  He illegally harnessed immigration to skew the electorate by obstructing immigration law enforcement.
Most Americans don’t realize that the term DREAM Act is actually an acronym (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act).  The supposed hate word “Alien” became palatable when it could be linked to The American Dream.  This is sheer hypocrisy, but then this Orwellian use of language is not about ethics, but about thought control.  There is certainly nothing ethical about that!
The Immigration and Nationality Act, defines the term “Alien” as “Any person, not a citizen or national of the United States.”  There is no insult in that term or its definition, only clarity.  Rebels who stage a coup d’etat generally first seize the means of communication to control the flow of information.  Knowledge is power, and to strip the citizenry of its power, its access to information must be tightly controlled though censorship.  Between fake news and the implementation of control over language by the social media, America stands at the precipice of the loss of our freedoms and our way of life.
The Fourth Amendment has been gutted in the name of national security, even as the “War on Terror” that justified many of these measures, does not include secure borders or effective immigration law enforcement mandated by the 9/11 Commission.  In fact, the Left now seeks to abolish all immigration law enforcement to ostensibly protect the immigrants, leaving the U.S. vulnerable.
The question that must be asked is, are we more at risk at the hands of terrorists or at the hands of the Ministry of Truth?

WHAT DOES THE CONSTITUTION MEAN TO YOU?

What The U.S. Constitution Should Mean To Americans

Constitution Flag One StarToday is Constitution Day, time to really think about the U.S. Constitution.

On May 25, 1787, with a quorum of seven states present, our Founding Fathers began meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to craft a document to govern the new nation, as the Articles of Confederation (in effect beginning in 1781) were wholly inadequate to the task.

Eventually, there were 12 states attending and, after many debates, arguments and compromises, on September 17, the U.S. Constitution was signed and the process was declared: “Done in Convention, by the unanimous consent of the States present.”

As noted by many historians, the three powerful words at the start, “We the People,” affirms that our government exists to serve it citizens, something which has gone totally out of control.

So, what should the U.S. Constitution mean to all Americans?

As it guarantees our freedom, our liberty, our rights, every American should be concerned with how we have allowed our government to grow exponentially and our public servants to act more like rulers or masters (with virtually unlimited freedom to waste taxpayer money), avoid penalties “We the People” would gravely suffer for transgressions and spending more time, it seems, trying to get re-elected than doing their jobs.

Prayer in schoolThe U.S. Constitution is a document like no other. It is not a living breathing one that needs “interpretation.” It says what it says and means what it says.

For instance, the 1963 Supreme Court decision banning prayer in schools was unconstitutional. Period. The Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” Allowing prayer in school does NOT violate the Constitution. Prayer is simply something that occurs between the student and God. It has nothing to do with government and does not “establish a religion.”

We should also be wary of hate speech being allowed to be protected under free speech (i.e., think Kathy Griffin decapitating our President), as well as basically allowing protest riots, when peaceful assembly is what is protected (i.e., unruly mobs “protesting” the 2016 election results). Examples are ad nauseam.

Another example is a citizen’s unalienable right to bear arms which “shall not be infringed,” yet there are cities and states that have breached this Constitutionally guaranteed right. When there is a tragic mass shooting, those who wish to disarm law-abiding people attempt to take their guns or limit them, instead of addressing the real problem. Think about it…when there is an auto accident with a drunk driver, cars are not blamed, people are. When someone is stabbed, a knife is not to blame, the person welding the knife is charged. And, as ridiculous as it sounds, when a person steals something the object being stolen is never at fault…it is the person.

Invasion of privacy has become the order of the day. Due process can be thwarted.

Thomas JeffersonCitizens of America, the U.S. Constitution should mean everything to you. Our Founding Fathers worried about how future generations would safeguard their freedom.

Consider what Thomas Jefferson so wisely said, “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large.”

Do not be swayed by smooth-talking politicians who promise everything because all they will enact are more and more programs (supposedly for our benefit) requiring more and more taxpayer money to fund or adding to an already massive $20,000,000,000,000 (Trillion) debt.

That is NOT the job of our Federal government, the duties of which are limited BY the Constitution and have been violated more times than anyone can count.

The only body that has the power to make laws at the national level is Congress, yet virtually every agency created by our elected representatives also have the power to enact and enforce laws, whether they are called laws or regulations or something different.

Flag and Statue of LibertyThe U.S. Constitution was the first of its kind and is unlike any other.

No other country on the planet enjoys the freedom that we have, but we must protect that freedom! If we do not, we will have Anarchy, or, perhaps, allow our great country to slide into Socialism where the only thing the “people” share is misery.

We must stand up to politicians, idiotic celebrities, and others who do or say anything they can to bypass, subvert or destroy our freedom and, most of all, our sacred document.

For my money, elected politicians or appointed state or federal judges who violate the Constitution should simply be immediately expelled with no pay and no benefits as they have violated their oath of office.

John AdamsThe United States Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land and it must be followed, or our freedom is lost.

Know your rights.

Protect your freedom.

Learning what it is all about is the key. As John Adams proclaimed, “Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.”

There are many paths to educate yourself and your family. Learn the basics by watching the award-winning In Search of Liberty Constitution movie, and then, for in-depth study, enroll in a Constitution Boot Camp from Building Blocks for Liberty or join KrisAnne Hall’s Liberty First University.

DEMOCRAT CORY BOOKER HIT WITH ETHICS VIOLATION

Cory Booker Hit with Ethics Complaint for Violating Senate Rules

By Savannah Pointer
September 14, 2018 at 4:42pm

An ethics complaint has been delivered to the chairman and co-chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics against Sen. Cory Booker.  The accusation against the New Jersey Democrat was made by Judicial Watch, and the group announced Wednesday in a news release that it had “hand-delivered a letter” to the leaders of the committee.
Their complaints against Booker stem from his unsolicited confession that he broke Senate rules while handling documents in the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  Booker openly told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would be breaking their rules, noting that he would accept the consequences of that choice.
The reasons Booker gave for this choice included his belief that the system was not functioning correctly, and he didn’t see that there was any good reason for the documents to be listed as classified.  The letter sent by Judicial Watch cited social media posts by Booker, where he openly bragged about breaking the committee rules, both on Twitter and Facebook.
In his Facebook post, Booker not only admitted to the violations but objected to the rules themselves, saying, “The classification of many documents as ‘Committee Confidential’ is a sham.”  Booker went on to acknowledge the possible repercussions of his actions:
“Senator Cornyn of Texas threatened me with expulsion during the hearings. Now he is threatening ethics charges. As I said then, I say it now: Bring it.”  “But he won’t,” Booker said. “He knows this is a sham process that can’t be defended. In this, he is all bluster, or as they say in his state of Texas: He is all hat and no cattle.”  Judicial Watch’s letter provided a portion of the Standing Rules of the Senate as the foundation for their belief that Booker’s actions are an ethics violation.
“By publicly releasing Committee Confidential records, Sen. Booker appears to have violated provisions 5 and/or 6 of Rule 29 of the Standing Rules of the Senate (Rev. Jan. 24, 2013), which stipulate:
“5. Any Senator, officer or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate, including the business and proceedings of the committees, subcommittees and offices of the Senate shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body; and if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt.
“6. Whenever, by the request of the Senate or any committee thereof, any documents or papers shall be communicated to the Senate by the President or the head of any department relating to any matter pending in the Senate, the proceedings in regard to which are secret or confidential under the rules, said documents and papers shall be considered as confidential, and shall not be disclosed without leave of the Senate.”
Booker’s actions regarding the rules and regulations of the Senate prompted Judicial Watch to make this request of the ethics committee:
“We hereby request that the Senate Ethics Committee conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Sen. Booker violated Senate Rules by releasing Committee Confidential records through his social media accounts.”

DEMOCRATS DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR JOBS OR WELFARE, THEY WANT TO TAKE YOUR JOBS AWAY AGAIN & RAISE TAXES- VOTE RED

 

Pelosi Reignites Obama Push To Shut Down Huge Chunk of Coal Industry

 


President Barack Obama talks to women of Congress, including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on March 12, 2014.

 Print
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is renewing the Obama administration’s war on coal by supporting efforts to attack coal use in America.
On Thursday, the California Democrat criticized the coal industry during a speech at the Global Climate Action Summit in California, NTK Network reported.  “Under President Obama, we went on to pass the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act in the House. But we were stopped in the Senate by the coal industry,” Pelosi said. “For this and other reasons, I’m so grateful to Michael Bloomberg’s ‘Beyond Coal’ initiative working with the Sierra Club. It is so essential.”
On its website, “Beyond Coal” says it wants to “replace dirty coal with clean energy by mobilizing grassroots activists in local communities to advocate for the retirement of old and outdated coal plants and to prevent new coal plants from being built.” Among its objectives is to shutter a third of the nation’s coal plants by 2020.
“Coal will go away in any place where there’s a free market, for sure, because the market just forces that, the economics force it,” he said, “It does not help that our federal government is opposed to some rational things and is putting out some of the drivel that they do.”
Pelosi’s most recent criticism of the coal industry was not the first time in recent weeks Pelosi attacked coal.
In an August speech at the Public Policy Institute of California she praised herself for her efforts against a small coal plant that operated in Washington, D.C., The Daily Caller reported.
“And it really is a moral issue if you believe as I do that this is God’s creation we have to be good stewards of it,” Pelosi said. “We have evangelicals and others with us — er, some, those who believe in God’s creation. So, in any case, this was a big thing for us. I had to fight some Democrats. Senator Byrd had a coal-powered plan fueling the Capitol, you know … and that’s gonna go, with all due respect to West Virginia we’re not gonna have a coal-powered plant floating around.”
Pelosi’s view is contrasted with that of President Donald Trump, who has strongly supported the coal industry, and at a recent rally had a coal miner join him on stage, according to The Daily Caller. Trump was telling the story of a miner who spoke to him about the revitalization of the coal industry.  “He said, ‘Sir, what you’ve done for the coal industry is incredible. Because we were dead, and now we’re vibrant again,’” Trump recalled.  The man then came on stage and talked about how under former President Barack Obama “the coal industry absolutely had the boot of government on its throat.”
“Many, many jobs were lost,” said the miner, whose name was not announced. “And many towns were destroyed by this. It was just a horrible thing. Horrible suffering happened in this country. Really for made-up reasons, I think. And what your administration does — has done — is bringing us back to life.”  In 2016, as part of his effort to change America’s energy sources, Obama pushed for a reduction in coal and other fossil fuels, The Washington Post reported. He said his administration would “push to change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers and our planet.”
That tone was emulated in the 2016 presidential campaign by Democrat Hillary Clinton who in March 2016 said, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business,” according to Politico.

TRUMP SAYS IT LIKE IT IS ON WHO ATTACKED US IN 9-11

On 9/11, Trump Boldly Placed Blame Exactly
Where It Belongs, Scorches Islamism

 Print
One of the many things about former President Barack Obama that caused great consternation among many Americans was his apparent inability to utter the words “radical,” “Islamist” and “terrorist” all in the same sentence, much less strung together as an apt descriptive term for violent jihadists waging war against the West.  Whether Obama’s refusal to say that particular phrase — and Lord knows he had ample opportunities to do so throughout his tenure in office — was due to an affinity for the Muslim faith or because he was beholden to the orthodoxy of liberal political correctness may never truly be known.
But while that accurate description of Islamic jihadists rarely, if ever, crossed Obama’s lips, President Donald Trump has no such qualms about using the term, especially when speaking about the atrocities committed by “radical Islamist terrorists.”  According to Breitbart, Trump used the phrase to describe the 19 hijackers who commandeered commercial airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center, Pentagon and an open field in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001.
In a presidential proclamation designating Tuesday as “Patriot Day 2018,” Trump honored those who were killed and those exhibited incredible bravery and sacrifice on behalf of others on that horrible day in 2001. He also made sure to point out exactly who was responsible for that terrible tragedy.  “On Patriot Day, we honor the memories of the nearly 3,000 precious lives we lost on September 11, 2001, and of every hero who has given their life since that day to protect our safety and our freedom,” Trump wrote.
“We come together, today, to recall this timeless truth: When America is united, no force on Earth can break us apart. Our values endure; our people thrive; our Nation prevails; and the memory of our loved ones never fades,” he continued   “Although that fateful Tuesday 17 years ago began like any other, it erupted into horror and anguish when radical Islamist terrorists carried out an unprecedented attack on our homeland,” wrote Trump, using the descriptive term that Obama so studiously avoided.
“In New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the enemies of liberty took aim on America, but their evil acts could not crush our spirit, overcome our will, or loosen our commitment to freedom,” he added. Trump wrote about the “heroism” displayed by the passengers of United Flight 93 who fought back against the terrorists and forced the airliner to crash in an open field in Pennsylvania.   He also paid homage to the first responders who rushed into the burning buildings of the Twin Towers and Pentagon to help rescue the trapped and wounded, and noted all of those who risked their health in the weeks and months after the attack to dig through the toxic rubble in search of survivors and the bodies of those who had been lost.
“The noble sacrifices of these true patriots are forged into the great history of America,” Trump wrote.
Thus, in memory of those who were lost and those who have since fought back against our nation’s enemies to defend freedom and our way of life, Trump referenced a Dec. 2001 joint resolution from Congress that had designated Sept. 11 of each year hereafter as “Patriot Day” in honor of those brave individuals who sacrificed so much.   Trump ordered “all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States” to fly the American flag at half-staff on Sept. 11 in their honor, as well as observe an official moment of silence to mark the moment the attack first occurred — 8:46 a.m. Eastern time — and encouraged the governors of the various states and territories to follow his lead and call for the same.
Obama, for reasons known only to him, refrained from ever placing the onus of terrorism on the “radical Islamist terrorists” who ruthlessly commit terrorist acts, which made it that much more difficult for our nation to defend and fight back against the known but unnamed enemy.  But Trump has no problems calling the jihadists exactly what they are, and there is no disputing that “radical Islamist terrorists” will be called out and mercilessly dealt with by this president.

IS THERE A PROGRAMER OUT THERE THAT CAN COME UP WITH SOMETHING TO REPLACE GOOGLE?

Leaked email shows Google’s plan to stop

Trump backfired in a way they never saw coming

democrats claim a handful of strange Russian Facebook ads swept Trump into the White House.
But the reality is Facebook, Twitter, and Google held their thumb on the scale in Hillary Clinton’s favor.
And this new leaked email showed how Google’s plan to stop Trump backfired in a way they never saw coming.
In 2016, Google made allegedly “non-partisan” efforts to boost Latino turnout.  It does not take an expert to see that these efforts were clearly made in order to increase turnout for Hillary Clinton.  However, Google may have accidently turned out more votes for Donald Trump than expected.
Fox News reports:
A Google executive’s leaked email reveals efforts to increase Latino turnout prior to the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the executive’s “surprise” at Donald Trump’s performance among Latino voters.  The 675-word email, first obtained exclusively by Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was written by the tech giant’s former head of multicultural marketing and details a range of efforts to increase Latino turnout, including the support of a partner organization that helped to drive voters to the polls.
At the end of the email, the author wrote that Latino Googler’s are “probably hurting right now” and that the election results are “tough to handle now that we know not all of us were against this.” The Google executive acknowledges that Latinos, long considered the “sleeping giant” of American politics thanks to the country’s rapidly shifting demographics, did vote in record-breaking numbers and turned out early—but a significant percentage supported Trump instead of Hillary Clinton.
The majority of Latino voters did in fact vote for Hillary Clinton.  But Donald Trump won a larger share of the voting bloc than Mitt Romney did in 2012. Increasing Donald Trump’s Latino voter turnout in key states such as Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania was crucial to his victory. It must infuriate many of the staff at Google knowing that they may have accidentally helped secure Donald Trump’s victory.
They won’t let that happen again.
It’s become Standard Operating Procedure for Silicon Valley to censor or outright ban anyone who disagrees with their leftist agenda.  They’ve even tried to suppress Patriot Pulse articles on social media.  But no one can really know how deep their electioneering goes.

JUST WHAT AMERICAN DOES NOT NEED A REPLACEMENT FOR COMMON CORE U.N. SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION

Education Secretary DeVos Signs On To
Globalist UN Education Agenda For U.S.

  By: Alex Newman
Published : September 10, 2018

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos signed on to a radical global “declaration” that calls for, among other absurdities, brainwashing children to believe in the United Nations-backed ideology of total government known as “‘sustainable development.” In fact, the pseudo-treaty inked by Trump’s education chief suggests that the purpose of schooling is to indoctrinate children with the right “values” and teach them to be obedient worker drones.

Under the un-American vision agreed to last week in Argentina, the governments purported to commit their nations to globalized brainwashing under the guise of “education.” To be clear, this is a dangerous policy document that, if implemented, will contribute to finalizing the destruction of traditional education in America and replacing it with a total indoctrination program aligned with the systems of some of the world’s most murderous autocracies. Americans should be outraged.

The declaration, produced at the first ever “Education Working Group” of the Group of 20 (G20) network of governments and dictatorships, was titled “‘Building consensus for fair and sustainable development.” How free nations can build “consensus” on “education” with murderous Islamist and Communist regimes that indoctrinate all children under their rule with evil ideologies of oppression was not made clear.

The whole education vision signed by the 20 governments and tyrants revolves around the United Nations Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This extremist document, which demands national and international wealth redistribution as well as brainwashing of all children, is basically a road-map to global totalitarianism. It was literally developed by mass-murdering dictatorships. But it has never ratified by the U.S. Senate, as required by the Constitution of treaties.

The G20 education document is wild in terms of what it openly promotes. “Education is the foundation of personal development as it provides children, youth and adults with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary to reach their full potential,” declared the education ministers (emphasis added), including some whose regimes torture and slaughter opponents of communism or sharia law.

They also demanded more data-gathering and -mining. “We recognize the value of policies based on evidence and the importance of having robust and comprehensive learning assessment systems and data in order to measure progress and learning outcomes, to help ensure quality education for all at all stages of life,” the document says, one of many references to government-provided “education” from cradle to grave informed by perpetual, Orwellian vacuuming up of student data.

The agreement also demands further globalization of education, a process that has been underway for many years. For instance, it calls for “international investment in education,” a theme consistent with the ongoing globalization of education under the UN’s extremist “education” agency known as UNESCO. “We acknowledge the role of existing and potential international mechanisms for financing education,” the document continues.

They also vowed to push it further. “We commit to strengthening international cooperation… and developing joint initiatives at bilateral, regional and multilateral levels,” the mostly unelected education czars said. In fact, the document goes on to say it explicitly: “We commit to facilitating the internationalization of education.” That means education policy for American children, decided by foreign governments and tyrants, as well as dictator clubs such as the UN. The signers, including DeVos, agreed to “promote the development of curricula … which have a strong focus on … values and attitudes.” They also committed to “foster the inclusion of non-cognitive skills such as socio-emotional skills across the curriculum,” which is basically educrat psycho-babble to conceal a program of psychological conditioning aiming to bring about the values and attitudes demanded by the establishment in all children.

Finally, the education chiefs vowed to “provide education that supports better integration of common values like … sustainable development.” As far as the nebulous, totalitarian concept relates to education, the UN has already made clear that it considers real education and educated people a threat to its grotesque notions of “sustainability.”

“Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes,” explains a UN “toolkit” for global “sustainable” education, ‘which is still posted online at UNESCO’s website. “In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.”

The declaration also undermines true human rights — free speech, freedom of the press, gun rights, and other God-given rights — and promotes the communist-inspired notion of government-granted privileges as rights. “We stress that access to quality education is a human right,” the education ministers declared, as if mass-murdering communist tyrants had the same vision of “quality education” as liberty-minded Christian parents in America.

Common Core Diva Lynne Taylor, a respected education researcher, was among the voices sounding the alarm. “DeVos’s global roots are showing, as they have been since she was sworn into office. The question is exactly what will she do with all the ideas, policies, and, the damning Declaration for not only education, but our very freedoms,” Taylor warned. “I can tell you we all need to brace for impact.”

Trump should fire DeVos — and not just for participating in this dangerous effort to further globalize education and standardize the indoctrination of children worldwide. But rather than replacing her, Trump should work with Congress to shut down the entire unconstitutional department and get the feds completely out of education. The alternative is the continued subversion of education in America — and ultimately, the death of freedom.

Democrat Andrew Gillum in two words. Impressive & Radical Florida Deserves Much Better!

John Stemberger: Democrat Candidate for Governor Andrew Gillum
in two words: Impressive and Radical

Image

Florida Democrats have nominated Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum to be their choice for Governor who will run against Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis on Nov. 6.
No doubt, Gillum is impressive. He is smart and attractive. He is a winsome communicator, has a beautiful family and has a certain youthful excitement about him. His personal story is moving. He was born poor in Miami. His mother was a school bus driver and his father, a construction worker. He was the fifth of seven children and the first to graduate from high school. Gillum was elected to Tallahassee’s City Council in 2003 while he was still a student at Florida A&M University. He stayed on the City Council until his election as Mayor in 2014. A pastor friend of mine in Tallahassee who has personally known Gillum for years said Gillum is “Obama 2.0” and could easily be a future President of the United States.
In terms of political currency, Andrew Gillum is the package. He could be the most impressive Democrat candidate for Governor in modern Florida political history.
But he is also the most radical.
He self-identified in the primary as the “true progressive in this race,” and the USA Herald called Gillum the “far-left choice” in the Democratic field. CNN reported, “Gillum was, without question, the choice of liberals in this race” and said the lesson of the primary election was, “you can’t be too liberal.”
Gillum was backed early by radical activist and billionaire political funders, George Soros and Tom Steyer. Soros of New York is worth around $8 billion. Steyer of California is worth around $1.6 billion. If you have never heard of these men, do a couple of Google searches and you will realize how politically dangerous and far to the left these major out-of-state players are. They will eventually pump millions into Gillum’s campaign to silently manipulate the future of our state. Gillum said he is “deeply appreciative of Mr. Soros, as well as Mr. Steyer….”
Gillum was also endorsed by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. The Bernie endorsement was made in person and came complete with a big public hug with State Rep. Carlos Smith, Florida’s openly gay-identified activist legislator standing by with a co-endorsement.
On economic policy, Gillum wants to turn Florida in an entirely new direction. He wants to raise the minimum wage from $8.25 to $15 an hour. He is also on record for raising the corporate tax rate to more than 40 percent — which is about a billion dollars. A Forbes magazine article described it by saying “Gillum’s proposal would make Florida the high tax capital of the South for businesses.” If you understand anything about economic policy, you know why these are really bad ideas for small businesses, for middle-class wage earners and for our overall economic growth as a state.
On education policy, he is an open enemy to school choice and vouchers and is “strongly opposed” to charter schools. He also wants to socialize and adopt Bernie Sanders’ free college education policy by “making college debt free.”
On social policy, having medical marijuana in Florida for certain medical conditions is not enough. Like personal injury lawyer John Morgan, Gillum now also wants to legalize pot for recreational purposes throughout our state, which is the family-friendly vacation capital of the world.
Gillum is backed by two of the most radically liberal groups in our state, Equality Florida and Planned Parenthood. These were supporting groups of the recent “die in” where activists and Democratic candidates lay down in “mass protest” inside Publix grocery stores across the state blocking moms from shopping on a Saturday morning this summer.
Gillum is one of the strongest advocates for the creation of new LGBTQ rights and “transgender rights.” He supports the so-called “Competitive Workforce Act” (CWA) bill that would allow men who subjectively express themselves as women to use women’s showers, dressing rooms and bathrooms in public schools, gyms, domestic violence shelters, scout camps, YMCA camps, and all other “public accommodations.” This is a blatant violation of the privacy, dignity, and safety of women and children. Mr. Gillum is apparently more sensitive to the “needs” of the biological males who act out as females than the thousands of real women who have suffered rape, abuse, and violence at the hands of men who would have to undress and shower with other men in close and intimate personal spaces if the CWA passes.
He has been described as a:
  • “sanctuary sympathizer” and directly called for abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).
  • On health care, Gillum is on record wanting “Medicare for All,” saying he would “work through with anyone … to make health care more universal in Florida.”
  • He is pro-abortion and wants to use our tax dollars in Florida to reinstate funding to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America.
  • He is opposed to robust 2nd Amendment rights and has sued the National Rifle Association as Mayor of Tallahassee to prevent ordinary citizens from defending themselves in city parks. Gillum’s website lists extensive new gun control laws he wants and proudly advertises he “led marches” for new gun control laws.
Finally, Gillum has been dogged by and is embroiled in scandal and controversy over various ethics charges and other shady transactions.
As Mayor, he purchased an online email system with hard-earned taxpayer’s money and then used that for Democratic political campaigns and not city business. Since then he has been embroiled in a political firestorm. Brazenly, he said that he does not regret purchasing the email software, only that a political campaign email was “accidentally” sent. He did reimburse the city but as of 2017, the matter was being investigated by Leon County Sheriff Walt McNeil.
Additionally, and more significantly, there is an ongoing federal investigation into public corruption in Tallahassee that looms over Gillum. The scandal involves out-of-town developers who were able to influence city development projects. The federal probe is related to unreported gifts of Broadway tickets, boat rides, food and hotel rooms received during a New York City trip with a Tallahassee lobbyist and at least two undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen.

Two things are clear about Andrew Gillum. He is very impressive. But he also is very radical. Florida deserves better. Much better.
