Missouri Senator needs to be booted from politics!

Missouri senator who urged Trump assassination booted from committees

Secret Service investigates lawmaker’s assassination comment

Sorry might not cut it for the Missouri lawmaker who called for President Trump’s assassination.

Missouri Senate leaders announced Tuesday that Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal has been stripped of her committee assignments, just two days after she tried to calm the controversy with a public apology.   Meanwhile, the state’s Republican lieutenant governor, Mike Parson, on Tuesday called for the Senate to go into special session to expel Chappelle-Nadal from the body.
“I do not make this request of you lightly, but you and I know it is the right course of action to take for the people of Missouri,” Parson wrote in a letter to members of the Missouri Senate.  Republican Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard and Minority Leader Gina Walsh on Tuesday both rescinded the lawmaker’s nine committee assignments, with Richard saying in a brief statement: “I support the decision of Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh to remove Sen. Chappelle-Nadal from all of her Senate committees. I am also removing her from all appointments under my authority.”
The move reflects the erosion of support Chappelle-Nadal has seen ever since she posted on Facebook last week: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”   Chappelle-Nadal later deleted the statement. She then apologized at a press conference streamed live Sunday on the Facebook page of the Clayton Times, a St. Louis County newspaper.   “President Trump, I apologize to you and your family,” Chappelle-Nadal said at the Wellspring Church in Ferguson, Mo. “I also apologize to all the people in Missouri. And I also apologize to my colleagues in the Missouri legislature for the mistake that I made.”
She added, “I made a mistake. And I’m owning up to it.”  But Missouri’s Republican governor and lieutenant governor already had said senators should oust her from office if she doesn’t resign.   Expulsion from office would require a two-thirds vote.

There have been four arrests in the wake of the vandalism of a Confederate statue Monday night in Durham, North Carolina.  Takiyah Fatima Thompson, Dante Emmanuel Strobino, Ngoc Loan Tran and Peter Hull Gilbert have all been arrested in relation to the unlawful tearing down of the prominent Durham statue.
According to local media, the four could be in for big fines if found guilty:

All three are charged with disorderly conduct by injury to a statue and damage to real property, which are both misdemeanors, and participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 and inciting others to riot where property damage exceeds $1,500, which are both felonies.

However, those arrested have something other than potential big fines in common. It turns out that at least three of them are members of the Communist Party. This seldom-reported fact is inconvenient to the narrative that the protest were spontaneous. The protests were in fact organized in large part by the communist Workers World Party, which the arrested members belong to.
According to ABC News, Workers World Party is fighting to bring about a socialist America (emphasis added):

It’s a communist party that was founded in 1959 by a group led by Sam Marcy of the Socialist Workers Party. The group supports myriad issues including anti-racism to anti-imperialist struggles.   The party is active in the Black Lives Matter movement and supports the struggles of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. The group says they’re “dedicated to organizing and fighting for a socialist revolution in the United States and around the world.”The group said it destroyed the statue hoping to “take down white supremacy.”

On Facebook, the communist group has called for the abolition of police and prisons:  The group also proudly supports socialist Venezuela and communist North Korea dictatorships:  They also posted this at the time of anti-American dictator Fidel Castro’s death: “Long live the Cuban Revolution! Socialism or death!
Along with this quote comparing America to Hitler:

“We have never aspired to having custody of the banners and principles which the revolutionary movement has defended throughout its heroic and inspiring history. However, if fate were to decree that, one day, we would be among the last defenders of socialism in a world in which US imperialism had realized Hitler’s dreams of world domination, we would defend this bulwark to the last drop of our blood.” – December 7, 1989

Leaders of the Workers World Party have also met with Syrian dictator and war criminal Bashir al-Assad:

More to read if you care to basic fact: they are Communist…..

Donald Trump’s die-hard supporters show no signs of straying

NEW YORK (AP) — They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump’s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself.   Even as Trump’s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar.
“He has done nothing to turn me away from him,” said Patricia Aleeyah Robinson, of Toledo, Ohio.  Robinson is black and her support of Trump has put her at odds with many in her life, costing her friendships and straining family relationships.    But the 63-year-old retired truck driver sees the controversy over Trump’s response to Charlottesville as being driven by those seeking to disrupt his agenda and push backers like her away. She said she knows he pays no deference to racists and feels he is the only president who has ever spoken directly to blacks. She admires his refusal to sugarcoat his beliefs.




Google Manipulates Search Results to Conceal
Criticism of Islam and Jihad

PJ Media:
The jihad against the freedom of speech is advancing rapidly, and most people don’t even know it’s happening.
Turkey’s state-run news outlet Anadolu Agency reports:

Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results. (emphasis added)

“Reputable” according to whom? “Questionable” according to whom?
Google has bowed to pressure from Muslims such as Texas imam Omar Suleiman, who led an initiative to compel Google to skew its results. Apparently Google hasn’t considered whether those who are demanding that search results be manipulated in a particular direction might have an ulterior motive. Could it be that those who are pressuring Google wish to conceal certain truths about Islam that they would prefer non-Muslims not know?
I discuss the Islamic supremacist initiative to compel the West to accept Sharia blasphemy laws under the guise of stamping out “hate speech” — an initiative that is now galloping forward and achieving immense success — in my new book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies). Google executives should read it, and should study Islam themselves in order to determine whether or not they have been misled by the Muslims who are pressuring them. But that’s not going to happen.
Google could have performed a bit more due diligence to determine if sources being tarred as “hate groups” actually deserve the label, if the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a reliable and objective arbiter for defining “hate groups,” and if the information that Google is suppressing is really inaccurate. Instead, Google seems to have swallowed uncritically everything Omar Suleiman and his allies have said.

They Forgot About the Hate Mongering NAZI group Antifa wonder Why?


The Group That Got Ignored in Charlottesville

The “alt-right” is evil. White supremacism is evil. Neo-Nazism is evil.
I’ve been saying these things my entire career; I’ve spent more than a year slamming various factions on the right that refuse to disassociate from and condemn popularizers of the racist alt-right. The media, too, have spent inordinate time covering the rise of the alt-right and tacit acquiescence to it from White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and President Trump. So when an alt-right piece of human debris drove a car at 40 mph into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Saturday, injuring 19 people and killing a 32-year-old woman, the level of scrutiny on the alt-right forced Trump to condemn various alt-right groups by name.
But the media have remained largely silent about another group: Antifa. Antifa is a loosely connected band of anti-capitalist protesters generally on the far left who dub themselves “anti-fascist” after their compatriots in Europe. They’ve been around in the United States since the 1990s, protesting globalization and burning trash cans at World Trade Organization meetings. But they’ve kicked into high gear over the past two years: They engaged in vandalism in violence, forcing the cancelation of a speech by alt-right popularizer Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley; a few months later, they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Berkeley; they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Sacramento, California, leading to a bloody street fight; they threw projectiles at police during President Trump’s inauguration; they attacked pro-Trump free-speech demonstrators in Seattle last weekend. They always label their opponents “fascists” in order to justify their violence.
In Charlottesville, Antifa engaged in street violence with the alt-right racists. As in Weimar, Germany, fascists flying the swastika engaged in hand-to-hand combat with Antifa members flying the communist red. And yet, the media declared that any negative coverage granted to Antifa would detract from the obvious evils of the alt-right. Sheryl Gay Stolberg of The New York Times tweeted in the midst of the violence, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” After receiving blowback from the left, Stolberg then corrected herself. She said: “Rethinking this. Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate.”
Or perhaps Antifa is a hateful group itself. But that wouldn’t fit the convenient narrative Antifa promotes and the media buy: that the sole threat to the republic comes from the racist right. Perhaps that’s why the media ignored the events in Sacramento and Berkeley and Seattle — to point out the evils of Antifa might detract from the evils of the alt-right.
That sort of biased coverage only engenders more militancy from the alt-right, which feels it must demonstrate openly and repeatedly to “stand up to Antifa.” Which, of course, prompts Antifa to violence.
Here’s the moral solution, as always: Condemn violence and evil wherever it occurs. The racist philosophy of the alt-right is evil. The violence of the alt-right is evil. The communist philosophy of Antifa is evil. So is the violence of Antifa. If we are to survive as a republic, we must call out Nazis but not punch them; we must stop providing cover to anarchists and communists who seek to hide behind self-proclaimed righteousness to participate in violence. Otherwise, we won’t be an honest or a free society.

Directly to Obama – Trump’s Lawyer Confirmed- Time for Special Counsel for Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Huma Abedin, Eric Holder

Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Scandal Links Directly to Obama – CONFIRMED!

Jay Seculow of the American Center for Law & Justice – who is now an attorney for President Donald J. Trump – made a shocking accusation on his Tuesday radio show. He said he has discovered an email that connects the Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting scandal directly to the Obama White House.

We’re learning more about this meeting, and it’s clear it was the point in which the Clintons were able to avoid criminal prosecution charges, which once seemed likely.

This is a stunning development, as Obama Administration alumni are denying involvement and are trying to protect their legacy. After all, their efforts didn’t work out as planned and Trump won the election despite this extraordinary level of corruption on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Watch as Sekulow explains the email, and then plays a clip of former Press Secretary Josh Earnest denying any involvement. Sekulow’s leadership position in the Trump legal team means these details are more than just rumors:


WaPo’s ham-handed reliance on unidentified sourcing is eroding the news outlet’s credibility and rendering its printed version best suited for lining the bottom of bird cages or on the roll next to the commode.

Washington Post copies Operation Garbo

Juan Pujol Garcia does not write for the Washington Post. He once had the talent to, but he died in 1988, at age 76—a decorated hero of World War II.   Garcia’s code name within British Security Service MI5 was “Garbo.” Garbo was a Spanish citizen whose hatred of the European Communist and Fascist regimes of his time motivated him to volunteer, in 1939, to become a spy for the British.
He had no experience in the espionage business. What he did have, though, was a vivid imagination.
While he worked for MI5, his code name within German Intelligence was “Alaric.” After most of the German spies in Britain were compromised early in the war, Garbo emerged as Abwehr’s most reliable and trusted source of intelligence. Eventually, the German High Command decorated him with the Iron Crosss

Operation Fortitude: The Closed Loop D-Day Deception Plan

While living in Britain, Garbo assembled and managed a wide-ranging, compartmentalized network of pro-German spies within Britain. A display of Garbo’s spy network appeared in a paper delivered at the Air Command and Staff College, in 2001, entitled “Operation Fortitude: The Closed Loop D-Day Deception Plan.”  Don’t be concerned if you can’t read the descriptions of Garbo’s many agents and sub-agents. It doesn’t matter. None of them were real. Not one.   Garbo, with the assistance of his MI5 case officer—Tommy Harris—made them up. All of them. And, they also made up faux reports, coming from the faux spies, spoon-feeding German Intelligence with a blend of mostly fiction, sprinkled with enough fact to maintain credibility.

Garbo was, arguably, the most successful double-agent of World War II

Garbo was, arguably, the most successful double-agent of World War II.
The high point came on June 8, 1944, when Garbo (Alaric) sent a message to Germany that “had a tremendous operational impact on the movement of German Panzer reinforcements in the critical few days after D-Day.” (Source)  Garcia was awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire. And he kept the money the Germans paid to him, and to his fake network of spies.
If alive today, and seeking employment, Garbo might work for the Washington Post (WaPo).
Here’s an example of where his reporting skills might have been employed: See the article of July 11, 2017, entitled “‘Category 5 hurricane’: White House under siege by Trump Jr.‘s Russia revelations.” The words “hurricane,” “siege” and “revelations” offer hints to the tone of the piece—standard bash-Trump stuff.
Here are the named sources: (1) Josh Raffel, a White House spokesman; (2) Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director; (3) Lindsay Walters, a deputy White House press secretary; (4) Thomas J. Barrack Jr., a longtime friend of the president; (5) Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the principal deputy press secretary; (6) Eric Trump, another son of the president; (7) Michael McFaul, the U.S. ambassador to Russia in the Obama administration; (8) Pence’s press secretary, Marc Lotter; and (9) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky).
Now the unnamed, unidentified, and unverifiable sources:
  1. 1·  ”…according to top White House officials and outside advisers”
    2·  ”…said people who have spoken with him this week”
    3·  ”…supporters of Trump Jr. who believe”
    4·  “One outside ally called it…”
    5·  ”…an outside adviser said”
    6·  ”…advisers privately speculating”
    7·  ”…more than a dozen West Wing officials, outside advisers, and friends…many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity”
    8·  ”…according to two senior White House officials and one ally close to the White House”
    9·  ”…the officials said”
    10· ”…a White House spokesman said”
    11· “Defenders of Priebus have long said…”
    12  ”…according to people close to him [Trump, Jr.]”
    13  “One friend of Trump Jr.‘s said…”
    14· ”…undermine the legitimacy of his victory, aides said”
    15· “A handful of Republican operatives close to the White House…”
    16· “Their plan, as one member of the team described it…”
    17· “But one outside adviser said…”
    18· “In the West Wing, meanwhile, fear of the Mueller probe effectively paralyzed senior staffers…” (OMG, someone is paralyzed!)
    19  “Other senior White House officials were hesitant to talk about Trump Jr.—even on the condition of anonymity—for fear of exposing themselves legally…”
    20  “Some top officials, as well as outside advisers, had earlier suggested…”
    21   ”…officials were afraid to discuss”
    22   “One White House official went so far as to stop communicating with the president’s embattled son…”
    23   “The kid is an honest kid,” said one friend of Trump Jr…”
    24   “Critics of Trump Jr. counter…”
    25   ”…said one person familiar with the discussions”
    26   “Republican senators were becoming increasingly frustrated with the White House…”
    27   “A growing number of senators believe
This is what #4 and #5 contributed to the article: “One outside ally called it a ‘Category 5 hurricane,’ while an outside adviser said a CNN graphic charting connections between the Trump team and Russians resembled the plot of the fictional Netflix series ‘House of Cards’.”   The CNN graphic chart mentioned above by the reporters is found here. As a visual display documenting real and serious implications, the graph is as fake as Garbo’s intelligence net. But it is welcome eye-wash for the pre-convinced.   Below is WaPo’s web-of-connections visual applied to Donald Trump, Jr. There you go—proof positive—and Bob’s your uncle.

Point: Multiple citations of what unidentified sources say, believe, and feel has become standard operating procedure at the Washington Post. Meanwhile…
Several sources, who wish to remain anonymous, but who are editors of independent, news-based websites routinely visited by audiences of varying political persuasions across a wide geography (excluding Russia, of course), say that WaPo’s ham-handed reliance on unidentified sourcing is eroding the news outlet’s credibility and rendering its printed version best suited for lining the bottom of bird cages.

The New Royal Family Of Socialism

The New Royal Family Of Socialism

Dave Merrick imageBy —— Bio and Archives August 6, 2017


It is little wonder that people like the Obamas, the Clintons, Justin Trudeau, Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and the growing, elite group of emerging, ‘socialist’ kings and queens are all real tight buddies

What made America the greatest economic and social powerhouse in the world was the ability to work for what you want and to enjoy the fruit of that labor. It is called incentive.   Karl Marx loved to sit in coffee shops and whirl out plans for a government that he had no intention of living under. In his spare time he constructed a long, drawn out manifesto that was destined to become one of the choicest tools for a modern-day, bloodthirsty and pressed-for-time devil.

Among other things, Marx was a reporter for an American newspaper. And because he couldn’t make it in the real world of capitalism as a journalist, he dreamed of a government by which he could pull the real world down to his mediocrity.

Satan dearly loves Marx’s manifesto in that it provides false, Godless hope for the ignorant flailing masses. It envisions a world where no one has an advantage except the elite. No matter how hard “the proletariat” works, or whether it works at all, there will be one standard of living for everyone. It gives an entertaining sense of purpose and power for the hyper-caffeinated college student, upper echelon ‘community organizers’ and any other useful idiots who rally them.

The sharpest of the idiots become especially passionate ‘socialists’ when they finally open their eyes and see that there is a LOT of power and profit waiting for those at the top, who can rein all the lesser insightful in under a single banner.   Where socialism is not established, socialists of course villainize the country’s current antithetical leadership. They do that mostly because vilifying that leader is a perfect means of unifying the rabble that will help the most politically cunning ‘socialists’, to take power.

Socialism cares NOTHING about the welfare of the people, beyond providing whatever it will take to pacify them when the leadership is nested. Nevertheless, socialism’s success depends solely upon the groundlings because they are the crowbar that will get the jobs done in achieving their getting into that nest – and then staying there.

Ask the citizens of Great Britain how they like socialized medicine. Ask the people of Venezuela how well socialism is working in their country.


What information was a Mueller-led FBI trying to keep from coming into public view?

Robert Mueller’s Has Record of Framing His Quarries

Judi McLeod image

By —— Bio and Archives August 6, 2017

Back in December 11, 2016 most folk were too busy celebrating the stunning presidential victory of Donald J. Trump, or already exploring devious ways to get him impeached. Few paid any attention to the revelation of Robert Mueller’s alleged attempts to have the Icelandic government help him frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks via the FBI.
In August of 2011,  Mueller sent a planeload of eight FBI agents on a purported mission to Iceland to sabotage Assange and WikiLeaks.  Not much notice was paid when former Icelandic Minister of the Interior, Ögmundur Jonasson caught them redhanded before sending them packing.

Jonasson revealed that U.S. authorities first told him in June 2011 that there was an ‘imminent attack’ on Iceland’s government databases; that they were sending the FBI to the rescue.  But he claims that when the FBI arrived in August, the FBI ‘sought Iceland’s cooperation to frame Assange and WikiLeaks’ in a mission that was part of a ‘wide-ranging investigation’ into Assange and WikiLeaks’.

Savvy to their real intention that had nothing to do with saving government database cyber attacks,  Jonasson’s response was to have the FBI kicked out of Iceland.

The story was widely reported on in 2013, but Jonasson made no attempt of the U.S. trying to frame Assange until he became a whistleblower last December, making it the biggest “if only” story of all time.  “If only” Jonasson had come forward in 2011, would Robert Mueller have ever been appointed as Special Counsel and get to empanel a Grand Jury to probe the Russia/Trump non-stop mainstream media allegation

“The authorities said there was an ‘imminent attack’ on Iceland’s government databases and that the FBI would send agents to investigate.  (Anneta Konstantinides For, Dec. 11, 2016)
“Jonasson said he was immediately skeptical of the FBI’s intentions.  ‘I was suspicious,’ he told Katoikos. ‘Well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand!’
Why was the FBI involved in an undercover operation to take Assange and WikiLeaks down, and why was the mainstream media not reporting on it for two long years?
“Jonasson said it was only when a ‘planeload’ of FBI agents arrived in August that he realized the true reason for their visit. (DailyMail)  “The former minister claims the FBI was seeking Iceland’s ‘cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks’.
“Jonasson said he immediately told the FBI agents to leave the country.



A total Eclipse of the sun will occur across the united states starting in Oregon, then
passing through parts of Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois,

Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina.  First Eclipse of the Sun in
99 years, first total eclipse fully visible in the U.S. since it’s founding in 1776.

It’s an interesting fact that this eclipse path cuts right through the middle of several very large cities. If you’re in St. Louis or Kansas City, you need to be in a certain part of town to see totality. Nashville is partially in totality. Portland OR misses it, as does Atlanta and Chattanooga. Bowling Green is barely in the path. Greenville SC is, but Spartanburg isn’t! And Charlotte misses as well. Omaha is not in the path, but Lincoln is – just barely. And the great national Parks of Yellowstone/Grand Teton, and the Great Smoky Mountains are cut in half by the path. But Craters of the Moon misses the show! The Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky will be perfect, weather permitting! But if you want to be there to see it, then you need to be in the right spot! Check out the maps to make sure you’re there!

See here how the path just barely cuts into Iowa. No cities in that state will see totality.

Ditto for Montana. (Check out the teeny little piece of this grand state that sees totality!)

Here are maps of the beaches in Oregon and South Carolina

There are other cities that are on the edge of the shadow. Here, you need to know where to be in order to see totailty:

Cape Girardeau, MO
Charleston, SC
Cleveland, TN
Knoxville, TN
Redmond, OR

There are some great cities that are squarely in the path, as well! Check out the maps below, and prepare for a great show, all you inhabitants of Columbia (MO and SC!), Rexburg, Lincoln, North Platte, Paducah, Grand Island and Casper! You’re some of the lucky ones who won’t even have to leave home!

There are other maps to see on the page that describes the Path through the US.

The mutiny on the Potomac has begun, and the fate of the captain of our ship, President Trump, hangs in the balance



The world is witnessing a political mutiny that is unprecedented in the annals of American history. Donald Trump was duly and overwhelmingly elected President of the United States on Tuesday November 8, 2016. He received the votes of almost 63 million Americans, the highest total ever for a Republican Party presidential candidate. Through a remarkably targeted campaign, he won electoral votes in 31 states, destroying his opponent in the Electoral College. For any other President, his opponents would have given him a “honeymoon,” and allowed his administration to get started and implement his agenda.

Trump has been the subject of an unrelenting and unparalleled number of deceitful attacks from his disgruntled opponents

Unfortunately, these traditional American political norms do not apply to Donald Trump. Despite his legitimate victory, Trump has been the subject of an unrelenting and unparalleled number of deceitful attacks from his disgruntled opponents. Immediately after his victory, a sinister network of deep state operatives, Obama holdovers in the bureaucracy, “Never Trump” Republicans, Democrats, and biased liberals in the media joined forces to achieve one goal, overturning the election results.

The reason this corrupt cabal is trying to invalidate the will of the American people is that President Trump’s agenda is a severe threat to their livelihoods. The “sultans of the status quo” view the President’s plan to put “America First” and “Drain the Swamp,” as a call to political arms and a battle for their survival.

To protect their power, Trump’s many opponents have tried everything from challenging the presidential vote totals in certain states to intimidating the members of the Electoral College. When that failed, the next step has been to manufacture the “Russian collusion” nonsense, which has led to the precarious situation which exists today.

Sadly, the Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the horrible mistake of recusing himself from the investigation, which set in motion the process that created the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, who is trying to find a crime to tie to President Trump. There is nothing in the “Russian collusion” story, so Mueller is now scrutinizing the complicated financial dealings of the President and his business empire.

Although the President has expressed his displeasure with this “witch hunt,” if he attempts to fire Mueller, Congress will try to impeach him. According to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), “any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency.” With Republican “friends” like Graham, the President certainly does not need enemies. To bolster his threat, Graham is working on legislation to prevent the President from firing Mueller without “judicial review.”

Republican led Senate has abandoned President Trump
The actions of Graham and several other GOP Senators illustrate how the Republican led Senate has abandoned President Trump. For example, the Senate, along with the House, overwhelmingly passed a bill imposing sanctions on Russia and preventing the President from easing them. It is the equivalent of Congress usurping presidential authority and since he has few Capitol Hill allies, the President was forced to sign the bill. A veto would have surely been overturned in an embarrassing display of presidential weakness.

Eric Bolling suspended from Fox amid lewd message allegations

Fox News anchor Eric Bolling has been suspended pending an investigation into lewd messages he is accused of sending multiple female coworkers at Fox News and Fox Business Channel.   In a statement, Fox News confirmed Bolling’s suspension Saturday afternoon.
“Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway,” a Fox spokesperson said.
Bolling, who previously co-hosted “The Five”, now serves as a host of the new Fox News show “The Specialists.”    A spokesperson for Fox tells The Hill that Bolling will be investigated by the Paul Weiss law firm. That’s the same firm that investigated former chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, who was ousted from the network just two days after the firm began investigating.

By CS Bennett, August 1, 2017
Let’s talk about this emotion called frustration. We get frustrated when the business
deal doesn’t go down right. We get frustrated when we do not live up to our potential.
We get frustrated when things are not right between us and our better-half. And we get
frustrated when our elected officials lie to us and then backstab us.
As children, we see the world through the eyes of innocence and with great enamor for those we were told we
ought to revere. But then we grow up, some much sooner than others, and discover that everything we believed
in, or hoped for, is not what we thought it was. That is when reality hits us smack in the face. That is when we
wake up and smell the coffee… well, some of us.

Image result for picture Schumer patting McCain on backHuman failings are a part of our experience in life. No one is perfect and no one is above reproach. We all have
our weaknesses and our strengths. But when we give our word, or make a promise, and we renege on it, we are
serving something that goes below human failings. That we would lie, renege, or outright break our promises is
indicative of one with a personality flaw.
We have RINOs, or moderates, if you prefer that terminology, who campaigned on repealing Obamacare, and
voted to do so when it did not count, because they knew Obama would veto it, who reversed their stance when
their vote did matter. This is frustrating to those who voted them into office.
For John McCain to show up and cast a vote against repealing Obamacare, and then chastising the Republicans,
as though he had just stepped down from Mount Olympus, to be the adult in the room, shows us how important it
is for us to rid ourselves of these moderates. They vote with the Democrats more than they do with their own
party. How can that be good for our side, and for pushing our agenda through?
Many of us campaigned hard, stood on corners waving signs and banners in the hot sun, and made hundreds of
calls to voters to convince them to vote Republican. If the Republicans who voted no were half the men the 1860s
Radical Republicans were in their day, we, and this president, would be further along with our agenda.
We are frustrated; however, we must remain resolved in putting into place more conservative candidates. We
must ensure that they are true conservatives, as well, and are true defenders of our freedoms and liberties.
Nothing less will do

Today’s Commentary:  Al Gore, Man/Bear/Super Energy Hog  — Obama pushing former Governor — President Trump’s Boy Scouts speech — Democrat IT scandal — Powerful testimony  — News Bits 
 Scientology founder and sci-fi writer L. Ron Hubbard reportedly once said, “You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion.” Some people dispute that quote, but there’s no disputing that Al Gore took it to heart. He helped combine sci-fi and religion to create doomsday environmentalism. Thanks to connections and his endless sermonizing at the rest of us to start living like cavemen or the skies will burn and the seas will swallow us up, his fortune has exploded from $2 million when he left the Vice Presidency to an estimated $300 million today. But we shouldn’t begrudge him his success because it turns out he needs a very large fortune if for no other reason than to pay his electric bill.
To coincide with the release of Gore’s latest scare movie, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” the National Center for Public Policy Research decided to investigate the truth about Gore’s own power bill. As this article notes, in 2007, he was slammed for having an energy hog mansion that used 20 times more power than the average American home. So he installed $250,000 worth of solar panels and other green updates. But that wasn’t nearly enough to offset his voracious appetite for electricity.
This report found that despite his claim that he uses 100% renewable energy, all those solar panels produce just 5.7% of the power needed for his massive home. Ninety-seven percent of the rest comes from nuclear, coal, natural gas and dams, the same power sources every other Nashville resident relies on, if there’s any left over for them after Al is done. He now burns about 21 times as much power as the average American home. His average monthly electric bill is over $1800, and just in September, he used nearly three times as much power as a typical home does in a year. Heating his outdoor pool alone used as much energy as six typical American homes. That’s not just an energy hog, it’s an energy Moby Dick. And this is just his Tennessee house. It doesn’t include the energy needed to power his seaside (!) California villa or all the energy he expends jetting around to lectures and environmental conferences (hey, they have this thing now called Skype! Look into it!)
As Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit has occasion to say on nearly a daily basis, “I’ll believe the environment is a crisis when the people who claim it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.”

Who Funded the Fake Trump/Putin Dossier?

Why Democrats are quietly retreating from their Trump/Putin collusion creation.

By Mark Alexander · August 2, 2017   Print
“There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.” —George Washington (1795)
In case you missed it, the Democrat Party and its mainstream media machine has focused all their resources this week on the emerging criminal conspiracy between former DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her IT expert, Imran Awan, et al.
Just kidding.
They actually focused all their 24/7 print and bandwidth on the fact that the House Judiciary Committee formally requested that Attorney General Jeff Sessions investigate Barack Obama‘s AG Loretta Lynch, Obama’s FBI director James Comey, and of course Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her criminal co-conspirator Bill Clinton.
Just kidding.
Of course, The New York Times and The Washington Post, along with all their Demo download media outlets, remain totally focused on their delusional Trump/Putin collusion illusion, the fake news farce they have been proliferating, ad nauseam, since President Donald Trump took office.
But some Democrats are quietly retreating from the Trump/Putin front because of the increasing risk that the fraudulent charade will ricochet.
Why would it backfire?
Because of Glenn Simpson and company.
Simpson is co-founder of Fusion GPS, the outfit that established its “reputation” after it was hired by Democrats in 2012 to conduct opposition research on Mitt Romney. In September of 2015 Fusion was reportedly hired by a wealthy Republican donor opposed to then-primary candidate Donald Trump to conduct opposition research, standard fare between competing high-profile primary and general election candidates.
But in May of 2016, once Trump was the presumed Republican nominee, Hillary Clinton’s comrades took over the account and issued different orders. They paid Simpson at least $160,000 to commission a former British MI6 “black bag” operative, Christopher Steele, to compile the now-infamously fake “Trump/Putin dossier.”
That totally debunked 35-page report became the centerpiece of the Demo/MSM propaganda machine‘s collusion conspiracy theory — the compulsive claim that Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin conspired to steal the election from Clinton.
Sidebar: As for her part in her own defeat, Clinton is putting the final spin on a book about the 2016 election, “What Happened.” She is sure to blame Trump/Putin collusion and everything else except for the most obvious explanation of why she lost — Hillary Clinton. (Of course, Clinton and Obama set the standard for Russian collusion.)
As I noted in my analysis of the Times/Post collusion to propagate the Trump/Putin narrative, “A week before Trump’s inaugural, former FBI Director James Comey added a powerful propaganda weapon to the MSM’s arsenal in its relentless effort to undermine Trump’s agenda.”
He and then-CIA Director John Brennan gave Obama a copy of the debunked Trump/Russia dossier. The FBI was “investigating” that fake dossier, which was then leaked to the press — most likely by Comey, who in May acknowledged that he had leaked other memos to the press in hopes that a special counsel would be appointed to investigate Trump. (Comey’s treachery paid off when his old friend, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, was appointed as special counsel.)
Actually, the Leftmedia had dismissed the dossier as fraud months before it became “news.” According to Christopher Steele’s lawyers, in September 2016, Steele was instructed by Fusion’s Glen Simpson to peddle the dossier in private briefings to The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo! News, The New Yorker and CNN. But it was so ludicrous that none of them would report on it until — Comey’s leak about the “investigation” gave them the green light.
Since then, the Trump/Putin conspiracy media saturation has been an effective, however baseless, political diversion and obfuscation tactic to deflect from the true Democrat/Putin collusion to destabilize Trump’s agenda and, by extension, that of the Republican Congress. And it’s working!
At least up to now…
This is where the fictional Trump/Putin collusion noose begins to unwind at a pace that even the Democrats can’t ignore, because it is likely to end up tightening around their own necks.
On 21 July, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Charles Grassley (R-IA), and the ranking Democrat, Diane Feinstein (D-CA), issued a subpoena for Glenn Simpson to testify, after he had previously declined their invitation to voluntary do so, stating he had “long held vacation plans.”
The subpoena prompted a response from Simpson’s lawyer, Joshua Levy, that Simpson would appear and answer Senate investigators’ questions in a closed-door session.
By the way, Levy is the former congressional counsel to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). This is probably as coincidental as the fact that, at the same time the Democrats began funding Fusion’s fraudulent claims about Trump, it turns out that Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer involved in the “controversial” meeting with Donald Trump Jr., was also associated with Simpson and Fusion.
Again, probably just coincidence…
While the Judiciary Committee would like information on who funded the phony Fusion dossier on Trump, its initial charges against Simpson are that he violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act for failing to register as one of Putin’s paid agents. According to Sen. Grassley, “It is vital for the Committee to fully understand Fusion’s failure to register under FARA and its role in the creating and spreading of the dossier.”
Turns out that, according to the collateral Senate testimony of Bill Browder, at the time Fusion was compiling the fake dossier info on Trump for the Democrats, it was also lobbying on behalf of Putin to overturn the 2012 Magnitsky Act, which sanctioned Putin’s oligarchs for human rights violations. According to Browder, he knows all about “Fusion GPS and Glenn Simpson’s role working on behalf of the Russian government to overturn the Magnitsky Act.”
Copy that?
This has all the political hallmarks of a quid pro quo — Putin (by way of Simpson and Steele) generated a counterfeit report on Trump to help Hillary Clinton win the election, in return for the favor of her softening the Magnitsky Act’s sanctions once president. Recall it was assumed by all the political illuminati that Clinton would absolutely be the 2016 victor. Unfortunately for Putin, Trump was elected, and he piled on additional Russian sanctions this week.
Investigative journalist Kim Strassel, in her Wall Street Journal analysis, “Who Paid for the ‘Trump Dossier’?,” posits this: “What if, all this time, Washington and the media have had the Russia collusion story backward? What if it wasn’t the Trump campaign playing footsie with the Vladimir Putin regime, but Democrats? The more we learn about Fusion, the more this seems a possibility.”
According to Strassel, “We know that at the exact time Fusion was working with the Russians, the firm also hired — wait for it — Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Mr. Trump. Steele compiled his material, according to his [Trump dossier] memos, based on allegations from unnamed Kremlin insiders and other Russians. Many of the claims sound eerily similar to the sort of ‘oppo’ [former Soviet counterintelligence officer Rinat] Akhmetshin peddled.” (Recall that Akhmetshin was also in that June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr.)
So, Steele was fed information by Russian operatives under the direction Putin — a former KGB colonel well-trained in such conspiracies — which is to say he, Simpson and their Democrat backers colluded with Russia to fabricate the hit piece against Trump.
Copy that?
In her analysis, Strassel concludes, “If the Russian intention was to sow chaos in the American political system, few things could have been more effective than that dossier, which ramped up an FBI investigation and sparked congressional probes and a special counsel, deeply wounding the president. … If Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Democrats and the media really want answers about Russian meddling, this is a far deeper well than the so-far scant case against Mr. Trump. If they refuse to dive into the story, we’ll know that the truth about Russia and the election was never what they were after.”
Bottom line, the singular question any investigator should now be asking is: “Who funded the fake Fusion Trump/Putin dossier?”
Memo to The New York Times and The Washington Post: The Democrats will not be the only victims of Fusion’s false dossier…

Semper Vigilans Fortis Paratus et Fidelis
Pro Deo et Libertate — 1776



President Donald Trump deserves a tremendous amount of gratitude and support for his newly instated trans-gender policy in the military! It is about time someone stood up to confront the Cultural Marxists who have been terrorizing American institutions for decades. They have been doing so through militant means, threats, subversion and by shoving political correctness down the throats of several generations of Americans and its institutions, with the sole purpose of silencing the moral majority. By silencing that majority, it opened up the stage for Marxists to promote moral decay without it being challenged. The previous policy’s purpose was to foster moral decay in the military. Moral decay is key for the collapse of any culture, which inevitably leads to the collapse of a nation. Marxists understand this and it seems apparent President Trump does too!

For Marxists, as David Horowitz puts it, “the issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution“. [1] Their revolution is for the overthrow of America. America is a Christian nation. The Biblical values by which our nation was founded upon had always been reflected in all institutions of influence for almost two centuries. But over decades, the Cultural Marxists have erased them, and continually work to finish off the remaining institutional remnants which still have some sense of morality reflected.

Since the 1920s, Cultural Marxists have worked tirelessly to not only indoctrinate the youth with Marxian thought and anti-Christian propaganda, they have also deliberately and systematically assaulted and captured the power centers of society in order to alter the moral fabric of this nation.

It is the will of Marxists to make America a “barbaric” nation. Donald Trump wishes to make America great again, and protecting the moral foundation is key! Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist from the early turn of the 20th Century gave a blueprint on how to destroy Western nations. He wrote in his series of essays entitled “Prison Notebooks” that, The civilized world has been thoroughly saturated with Christianity for 2,000 years. Any country grounded in Judeo-Christian values cannot be overthrown until those roots are cut. But to cut the roots- to change culture – a long march through the institutions is necessary. Only then will the power fall into our laps like a ripened fruit. The institutions he was referring to were the media, music industry, education, movie industry, the arts, political parties, etc., which influence culture from the top-down. The Frankfurt School, a Marxist social research think tank concluded, back in the early part of the 20th century as well, that in order to bring Bolshevism to the west, two things needed to happen: the total ‘annihilation’ of western culture, particularly the Judeo-Christian culture was necessary, and, a new cultural form needed to be created to increase the alienation of the population… a ‘new barbarism’ was needed. It was Wilhelm “Willi” Münzenberg, a German Marxist and an early member of the Frankfurt School who said “We will make the west so corrupt that it stinks“.

Military institutions can be included in Gramsci’s model because the culture in American Armed Forces is God and country. The military has the delegated responsibility to defend We the People from enemies foreign and domestic. We the People ordained and established the U.S. Constitution, which is based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence. These principles are that all men are created equal and are endowed by our Creator with God-given rights, and such rights are protected by that Constitution.

Paul Kengor in his article “War on Religion” from wrote that, Communists quibbled over the details of how to implement Marx’s vision, but they were unanimous in one thing: religion was the enemy, a rival to Marxist mind control, and it had to be vanquished regardless of costs and difficulties.

A perfect relevant example of one aspect of the assault of Cultural Marxism is reflected in an article written by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. which reads, Writing for The Guardian, self-identified ‘Christian dissident’ Keith Mascord claims that ‘homophobic opposition to same-sex marriage’ has its roots in adherence to the Bible, and only by leaving the biblical text aside will Christians learn to support ‘marriage equality.’ He continues,The Guardian’s essay is reminiscent of a 2015 op-ed in the New York Times, where food critic and gay activist Frank Bruni argued that Christians should be coerced into embracing the gay lifestyle. Mr. Williams also points out that, Like Mascord, Bruni wrote that Christians who hold on to ‘ossified,’ biblically based beliefs regarding sexual morality have no place in modern society and should be reeducated, forcibly if necessary. [2] From the 1963 Congressional Record, it is found that there were 45 Current Communist Goals that were actively being pursued in America at the time (and are still being pursued today). Communist Goal #26 reads, Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as normal, natural, healthy. [3] As Curtis Bowers points out in his documentary, “Agenda, Grinding America Down”, by making homosexuality normal in society, that strategy becomes a tool of subversion to “extinguish” moral values in the society.

So it’s clear that all of these gender social issues, including the gender neutral bathrooms, are nothing more than a deliberate effort to “subvert” America and bring about an agenda. It is a great evil and it must be rejected. It has nothing to do with granting gender rights or validating victimized groups. It has everything to do with the deliberate Marxist/Globalist strategy to destroy America by destroying the culture first. History tells us that when there is gross immorality in any society, it collapses. Barbarism and immorality provide the excuse for tyrants, tyrants such as the United Nations and the king-makers of the world, to step in to suppress the inevitable chaos it brings, thus crushing Liberty. We have to remember the the revolutionaries are not in control. They are puppets of “puppet-masters”, the “invisible government” as Edward Bernays put it … who are in control. Revolution is necessary, so revolutionaries are needed in order for the invisible governors to further agendas. These invisible governors deliberately create problems and provide solutions to the very problems they themselves create! Furthermore, this trans-gender policy that the President nixed was implemented into the military as part of the United Nations’ effort to complete its Gender Equality Sustainable Development Goal #5 which is for all nations to, “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”. This is to be completed by the year 2030. The first part of Sustainable Development Goal #5 is aligned with Communist Goal #26. Both are tied for the sole purpose of intentionally undermining the culture, to bring about World Governance, a goal of the invisible government.

Only a moral people can govern themselves as our Founding Fathers clearly pointed out and if a society loses its moral compass, it is destined to collapse. The Marxists know this which is why they push immorality at “all” levels including education since immorality is embedded in 21st Century education through Common Core.

President Trump’s new policy is a big step towards stopping the deliberate effort by Collectivists in government to subvert our military. He is keeping his promise to protect Americans from enemies foreign and “domestic” [EM]. If America has a military that is burdened with political correctness, it becomes a military that is incapable of providing for the common defense, which is one aspect of disarmament which Marxists want. As David Horowitz puts it with regards to the strategy of Leftists, “Like termites, they set about to eat away at the foundations of the building in expectation that one day they could cause it to collapse.”[4] So thank you President Trump for standing for what is right in protecting the American People.

There is still a moral majority in America and it is up to that moral majority to take a stand against the evil of Cultural Marxism. We must support the decision President Trump made and thank him. The president’s decision was a major blow to the Communism and Globalism that is running rampant in American institutions today.

A big praise to Missouri GOP Representative Vicky Hartzler as well who reportedly applauded the president’s decision! However, Arizona Senator John McCain, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, Colorado Senator Cory Gardner and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst are reportedly opposed to President Trump’s decision. [5] These opposing Senators should be ashamed of themselves. Their disdain reflects more support for Communism than Liberty. Whose side are they on? Certainly not America’s.

Bear Witness Central supports President Trump 100%.
