Muslim Representative causing more dissention during Cohen Hearing: It’s rich seeing Tlaib accuse someone else of bigotry when her own anti-Semitic past has long been troublesome for the freshman congresswoman.

The Political Insider
Rashida Tlaib Insinuates Mark Meadows is Racist,
Gets Hammered by the Truth

By Rusty |  | 
Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib suggested Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows was racist during testimony by Michael Cohen on Wednesday.  Tlaib took issue with Meadows introduction of Lynne Patton, a top Trump housing official who is black, as a means to push back on Cohen’s narrative that the President is a racist.  “Lynne Patton says she would not work for a man who is racist,” Meadows said following Cohen’s prepared remarks. “She disagrees with you.”
Tlaib called the display itself an act of racism.
“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist and … the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee is alone racist in itself,” Tlaib claimed, taking a clear shot at Meadows. (Side note on Cohen – Why do scorned former associates of the President always make baseless claims of racism? Did they not mind working with a racist while they were in his circle? And what does that say about them?)

Meadows Was Furious

Meadows immediately interjected and demanded Tlaib’s comments be stricken from the record, noting his own nieces and nephews are persons of color.  “Mr. Chairman, I ask that her words, when she’s referring to an individual member of this body, be taken down and stricken from the record,” he demanded.
“I am not calling the gentleman, Mr. Meadows a racist,” she claimed, having just called the gentleman racist. “I’m saying that in itself it is a racist act.”  Tlaib hesitantly retracted but continued to refer to using Patton as a defense of the President a “racist act.”

“Mr. Chairman, there’s nothing more personal to me than my relationship, my nieces and nephews, are people of color, not many people know that,” Meadows would add.

Cummings Defends Meadows
Meadows had help from what some might consider an unlikely source – Chairman Elijah Cummings.  Upon hearing Tlaib’s comments, Cummings immediately jumped in and checked to see if she wanted to rephrase what she was insinuating.  “Excuse me would you like to rephrase that statement Mrs. Tlaib?” he asked before noting that he and Meadows are actually best friends. “Of all the people on this committee, I’ve said it and gotten in trouble for it but you are one of my best friends,” Cummings said. “I could see and feel your pain. I feel it. And I don’t think Ms. Tlaib intended to cause you that, that kind of pain and that kind of frustration.”
“I don’t mind saying that not only is [Cummings] a friend,” Meadows would later tell Fox News host Sean Hannity, “but he was a gentleman today in the way that he came to my defense.”

It’s rich seeing Tlaib accuse someone else of bigotry when her own anti-Semitic past has long been troublesome for the freshman congresswoman.

Occasional Cortex Blowing Smoke Up The Public’s Wazoo

Occasional Cortex Blowing Smoke Up The Public’s WazooWe all knew little girls like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in our childhood and avoided them like the plague in the playground because they didn’t play nice and lived only to boss others around.  Born an extrovert who would become the top social media star of her day, AOC is out there laying it on thick that she’s “THE BOSS!”
Little does she seem to know that if you really are the boss, you don’t have to keep on saying it.  But the starved-for-attention AOC’s ego has already literally flown the coop, squawking all the way.  Now that she’s made it to the cover of her own comic book, “clad like a warrior woman, beckoning on her enemies with her war cry of “New party, who dis?” The Guardian gets it bass-akwards when they report she “has made the leap from Congress to the pages of a comic book.”
AOC was comic book material long before she leapt into Congress.
“Out in May from independent US press Devil’s Due Comics – which is quick to point out that Ocasio-Cortez has not endorsed the project – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force is, according to its publisher, a “satire that takes aim at Washington” and “spare[s] no one”. Its cover shows the new congresswoman, smartphone in hand, in defiant pose in front of the Capitol building; a variant cover replaces her white suit and phone with a superhero outfit and a sword.” (The Guardian, Feb. 25, 2019)

“Ocasio-Cortez has previously revealed herself to be a comics fan, taking time out from launching her Green New Deal in January to quote Watchmen creator Alan Moore in a tweet to her detractors: “None of you understand. I’m not locked up in here with YOU. You’re locked up in here with ME.”

Only children read comic books and run away to join the circus in their unshakeable make-believe world.  The mainstream and social media are resorting to comic book style when they try to explain what her Green New Deal can do for society.  They’re now tooting the horn that the newest fantasy of the far left would cost up to $93 trillion, or $600G per household:

“The sweeping “Green New Deal” proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., could cost as much as $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000 per household, according to a new study co-authored by the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.” (Fox News, 25, 2019)

The former director of the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office?

When did Congress ever stick to a budget, when in point of fact it has been over 10 years since an actual budget has been processed through Congress?

“The sobering and staggering cost estimate came as Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris pointedly declined in an interview broadcast Sunday to put a price tag on the Green New Deal and “Medicare-for-all,” saying “it’s not about a cost,” but rather return on investment.” (Fox News)

Stop doing any kind of math that gives any kind of dignity to pie-in-the-sky fantasies of the far left because the Green New Deal exists solely in the imagination of socialist radicals not in society’s.

As someone once said, “If you’re explaining, you’re already losing”.  The mainstream media portrays the extrovert-cum-social media star AOC as having old guard Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the run.  Complete hogwash.  2020 Dems on the run for the presidency are using AOC to make themselves look good, meaning less radical.

They cravenly hide behind the stage curtain counting on the masses to think they are only “progressive and not radical”.

California Senator Kamala Harris is saying what they’re all saying: “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.”  Harris in trying to explain it, has already lost her “proud Democrat” identity.  Child activists in the Sunrise Movement are already out there shooting holes in AOC’s the-world-will-end-in-12 years-narrative:
“One child tells Sen. Feinstein, “Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around.” No, actually a former bartender from the Bronx who won an election in an extremely blue district and who has been in Congress for less than two months said that.” (RedState Feb. 23, 2019)  And as for AOC’s arrogant Tweet to New Green Deal detractors: “None of you understand. I’m not locked up in here with YOU. You’re locked up in here with ME”, she couldn’t be more wrong.
With the help of the mainstream and social media, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is blowing smoke up the public’s Wazoo.  Extroverts of her type live on the oxygen of publicity.  She thrives on getting your attention.  Kick AOC out of your head by doing what she hates most: IGNORE HER.
“Is it a plane, is it a bird?” Is it a drone? No, it’s AOC up there trying to fly over all heads in a green miasma of unicorn rainbow farts.

No one asked the question, then or now: Who was, and is, Michael Cohen really working for?

Latest Hoaxer Michael Cohen Given 7-Hour
Congressional Floor

Latest Hoaxer Michael Cohen Given 7-Hour Congressional FloorA Trump-hating Congress needed to bring their visceral hatred to an all-time high crescendo.  Hoaxer Jussie Smollett tried but got caught in the act by Chicago cops, so working with Hillary Clinton’s former lawyer Lanny Davis,  Congress brought in Michael Cohen.

Cohen’s hoax lasted for seven hours, during which Georgia Congressman Jody Hice said of his testimony: “It’s a shameful mockery”.
You won’t see this video anywhere on the mainstream or social media today.

Hating Trump has become a bloodsport like no other

Cohen called Trump every name he possibly could, but the one he wanted to stick was: “Donald Trump is a “RACIST”!
Failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claims that Trump is a “racist”; former president, current “Resistance” leader Barack Obama claims that Trump’s a “racist”.  All 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls say Trump’s a “racist”;  innumerable members of the so-called “Entertainment Industry” claim that Trump is a “racist.  Ditto for millions of the Walking Television Screen folk who believe anything they see on TV still out there spreading the worldwide message.
Therefore President Trump’s not only a “racist” he’s a certifiable “racist”.  End of story for him but NEVER for them.
Hating Trump has become a bloodsport like no other, heaving hatred at all those with whom you disagree, a national past-time.  “Stand still while I maim you”, the unspoken but rule of thumb threat for anyone who dares wear a MAGA hat in public, whether teenaged or 81.
Hating Trump is de rigueur for anyone running for election and any Socialist Democrat striving for DNC sanction in the 2020 presidential race.
The masses have been hearing the “I hate Trump” mantra every day for the past two and a half years.
Those sending out the message will next be holding a contest called “Who Hates Trump Most?”, thinking that as long as they keep the focus on hating Trump, voters won’t notice their many shortcomings.

Blinded by their own seething hatred

Hating Trump is their only platform, and as things are going now, it won’t be that long before we see them all turning on each other.

While they’re out there beating the “HateTrump” war drums, they’re counting on the public at large not noticing that they support Infanticide down to the last one, or that in their 2018 grab for power they helped Commies make a comeback in America.

They seem to remain totally unaware that hatred of Trump never got Hillary Clinton elected, or that save for the choir singing on the same page as they do, the audience they count on for votes, long ago left the arena.

Trump-haters in public office began losing the battle when their hatred of Trump seeped out to his family members and went all the way to hatred of anyone who doesn’t hate him.

Blinded by their own seething hatred, they fail to admit that while President Trump only wants to make America great again, they only want to continue ripping Americans off, and like their heroes Hillary and Obama,  enrich themselves while they are at it.

This Congress deserves an Academy Award Oscar for bringing back to the stage a disbarred lawyer who they admitted lied to them in Round One.

Thug Michael Cohen was a Clinton plant from the get-go, slithering into the Trump camp long before the Christopher Steele dossier bombshell was dropped on the political scene.  Lost in public memory is that he was hired by Trump in 2006—when both Clinton and Obama were senators hungrily eyeing the 2008 presidency.

Michael Cohen was Hillary Clinton’s biggest political asset

Knowing she would need a scandal to beat Obama to the Oval Office, Clinton dispatched Cohen to the Trump team, who could later be blamed for the coming Obama birth certificate scandal she was hatching.

Truth is that Michael Cohen was Hillary Clinton’s biggest political asset.

Back then, Cohen, who doubled as Donald Trump’s pre-presidential election political advisor, was still a registered Democrat, who voted for Obama in 2008.

By 2011, Cohen was setting up Trump as the man who got eligibility back on the Google map, promising to prove Obama was not born in Hawaii, but on foreign soil—a concept that originated directly from the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign.

“According to ABC News, “Late last year, Cohen co-founded the “draft Trump” website, “Should Trump run?”  and the site has received more than 830,000 hits”. (ABC News, April 16, 2011)

Cohen asked all so-called ‘birthers’ to send their information directly to him.

“Canada Free Press worried at the time about what Cohen would do with the information sent to him.

Who was, and is, Michael Cohen really working for?

It was March 23, 2011 on The View when Trump first talked about Obama’s missing Birth Certificate, paving the way for the MSM and social media to blame him for a controversy unearthed by Hillary Clinton.
No one asked the question, then or now: Who was, and is, Michael Cohen really working for?
Before Michael Cohen became the latest, snivelling, turncoat cut-throat star of CNN and Congress, he came on as a “pit bull”,  New York-nicknamed “Tom”,  a reference to Tom Hagen, the consigliere to Vita Corleone in the ‘Godfather’ movies.
“I do everything in my power to resolve it to Mr. Trump’s benefit,” Cohen said in an interview with ABC News.  “If you do something wrong, I’m going to come at you, grab you by the neck and I’m not going to let you go until I’m finished.” (ABC, April 16, 2011)
Congress star Michael Cohen, who yesterday replaced Jussie Smollett as the latest hoax,  is a totally Hillary Clinton manufactured and pro-bono Lanny Davis groomed snake in the grass.  He will go off to prison waiting for a 2020 Democrat president to give him a presidential pardon.
Meanwhile, in order to Make America Great Again (MAGA), we must first Make America Sane Again (MASA).




Muslim speech Queen: Dutch Orchestra walks out. Unbelievable!!!

When the most liberal country in Europe pulls the plug on Islam, the world is beginning to see the light.  Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands attended a concert in the capital, Amsterdam.  The Guest Conductor, who just happens to be Muslim, proceeded to give the Queen a lecture on the “beauty” of Islam. The entire orchestra got up and walked out, refusing to be associated with someone lecturing their Queen.  The staff of the music hall escorted the conductor off-stage, and after questioning, out of the building.
Now that took courage.  Good for the people of  Holland.  Watch the walk out at the link below.
Bet you didn’t see this on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN or MSNBC.

But you did see here on The Highlands Tea Party Web Page!

Graham calls out GOP opposition to Trump’s national emergency

Several Republican senators now oppose the president’s emergency declaration; reaction
from Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee.


Unquestionably the Best Dave Janda release yet!

 And he’s given us all an assignment.
Call the White House today and give them this message – We support the President, and we ask that he give the Executive order to stop ALL ILLEGAL MIGRATION now under “Title 8USC 1182 F”, which he can do according to Janda and the several sources he cites, and he doesn’t even need to give a reason according to recent SCOTUS ruling.  You can find these instructions at approx 27 minutes into the clip, but view it all as Janda reviews the history of the coup, naming names, times and actions. You should view it all so that you have reasoned assurances Janda isn’t talking through his hat.
Remember, Trump can’t save our nation alone and we need to let his enemies know that we are many, dedicated to liberty and they are few.

“War is deceit.” Mohammad (Bukhari Vol 4, Book 52, hadith 269)

On the afternoon of September 11, 2001 I bought my first copy of the Quran and have been studying Islam ever since. Any political or ecclesiastical leader who tells you Islam is just another religion is either a fool or a liar!  I have been told by a Presbyterian and a Lutheran ecclesiastic that Muslims are nice people which begs the question of Islam. Those two ministers of the gospels are treacherous fools needing to be fired! 
Without doubt there are nice Muslims, nice Communists, nice Fascists, nice Buddhists, nice Hindus, nice Mafioso, nice whatever I don’t want to wax gross here. Islam combines religious practice with civil government to a degree far beyond any of the other major world class religions and its tenets are incompatible with them which explains why they ever war against them. Mohammed was a warrior, his disciples were warriors, they evangelized with the sword which remains one of Islam’s enduring symbols. 
Muslims do not come to America or Europe to integrate, assimilate or become whatever the population of these many nations are, they come to establish Islam. They are in fact missionaries for Islam. Just because they don’t openly evangelize like Christians do, does not mean they are not propagating Islam. All Islamic roads lead to compulsory obedience to Allah, the god of Islam which is a cultic religious POLITICAL SYSTEM! 
Migration without assimilation is invasion, especially now that Western societies have accepted recreational sex and killing off their accidental offspring. Both politicians and ecclesiastics are justifying caravans. Islam is YHWH’s judgment upon Western nations who have known YHWH as God, but have forsaken him as Sovereign! As a result they are not replacing themselves and politicians, eager to find new political and revenue sources, welcome Muslims who reproduce themselves by a beginning factor of three. On its present course, within two decades much of defeated European nations will become Islamic and all non-Muslims will become oppressed second class citizens in the formerly Christian nation of their birth. 
That is the the way of Islam, the historic record of Islam and they are already well on their way to the victory denied them in the eighth century

By Charles Martel.  It’s the truth!  

Islamic Deception & The 5 Headed Hydra

(UTT=Understanding The Threat)
Americans who understand the threat from the Islamic Counter-state, especially those trained by UTT, are done giving leeway to conservative “leaders” who continue to fall prey to deception from Muslims portraying themselves as ever-more friendly, but operating on behalf of America’s enemy.  The Political Warfare model uses “splinters” – elements of the same enemy appearing to work against each other while actually propelling the broader joint-objective forward.  Islam gives American leaders many different views of itself to give the impression there are “many interpretations” and “many versions” of Islam, while always moving towards an Islamic State under sharia.
For the purposes of this discussion UTT is using a five (5) headed hydra with each different head often appearing to work against the others while actually all support the same goal – keep the body (Islam) alive and dominant.
One head represents Islamic jurists teaching allah’s divine law – sharia. Sharia comes from the Koran and the example of Islam’s prophet Mohammad. Watch videos of the world’s most prominent Islamic scholars when they speak to Muslim audiences and you will hear them saying exactly what Al Qaeda says about Islam.
A second head represents violent jihadis, such as fighters from the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, Al Shabaah, Boko Haram, Islamic Jihad, and many others. When put in front of a camera, these people often speak raw truth about doctrinal Islam. Sometimes you will hear them condemn the suit-wearing jihadis for not picking up weapons and fighting. Sometimes these condemnations are legitimate per sharia, but for the non-Muslim public witnessing these disagreements, it gives suit-wearing jihadis room to distance themselves from those who have the same objective as them – an Islamic State under sharia.
The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leaders wear suits and meet with Members of Congress, the FBI, Chambers of Commerce, and others. MB leaders point to Al Qaeda and the Islamic State and condemn them for crucifying people and stoning them to death, even though they actually support these actions because they are lawful under sharia. Relative to the Islamic State and Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood leaders in suits appear “more moderate” and they use this to get non-Muslim officials at the local, state and federal level to draw them in for “advice.” Yet, MB leaders are speaking more freely these days because they believe they are close to victory.
As Muslim Brotherhood leaders speak more truthfully about Islam and sharia, more Americans are becoming aware of the Muslim Brotherhood’s modus operandi and their threat to local communities. Astute citizens now realize leaders from the Islamic Society of North America, CAIR, Muslim Public Affairs Council, Muslim Advocates and others are hostile to America’s laws and founding principles. So “moderate Muslims” – the 4th head of this hydra – are coming out of the woodwork.
Relative to the deceiving Muslim Brotherhood leaders, “moderate Muslims” appear more…moderate. “Moderates” who are getting air time in “conservative circles” include people like Shireen Qudosi, Raheel Raza, Reza Aslan, Qanta Ahmed and others.
Qanta Ahmed is exhibit A.
This past weekend while appearing as a guest on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show, Qanta Ahmed said, “(Anti-semitism) is also profoundly against Islam, which reveres the Torah and Judaism.”  Unfortunately, Judge Jeanine, normally strong on national security issues, nodded her head in agreement.
Even a cursory study of basic Islamic teachings reveals Qanta Ahmed’s statement is objectively false.
See UTT’s recent article on Jew-hatred/anti-semitism in Islam here.
“Moderate Muslims’ comments about Islam are often objectively untrue and have no basis in fact. Therefore, professionals must ask themselves, “Are these people intentionally lying or just ignorant?”  UTT believes the practical reality is that in either case, no one should be relying upon these people for advice on how to fight and win this war.  The fifth and final head of this hydra are jihadis posing as former Muslims. To be clear, UTT works with former Muslims who work tirelessly to speak truth about Islam at great risk to their lives. We are not talking about these people.
UTT is cautioning folks not to simply take someone at their word when he/she says he/she is a “former Muslim” until proper due diligence is complete.
There is a reason Coptic Christians in Egypt do not let Muslim converts have positions of leadership in their church for decades. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps sends its operatives to four years of Christian seminary in order to penetrate and identify members of the underground Christian movement in Iran. Even in the U.S. people posing as former Muslims have turned out to be working for the cause of Islam.
Remember, this war is an information war. It is a war of narratives. The enemy uses deceit as a primary weapon in this war, and they have many layers in their strategy.  Since U.S. Islamic schools teach Muslim children the same information about Islam and the duties of Muslims Al Qaeda teaches, people who say “Islam does not stand for violence/Jew-hatred/conquest” are either ignorant or lying, and in either case, mature responsible adults should not put such people in positions of trust and confidence.

The U.S. State Department, in concert with the United Nations, are unilaterally placing large number of Muslims in communities without the approval of the local communities or state.  This video below With Ann Corcoran  gives you a first-hand example of this problem:

The emergency declaration should not be resolved in court

Trump vs. Congress: The emergency declaration
should not be resolved in court

President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration to build a border wall has provoked a constitutional confrontation with Congress.
Here is the background for understanding what’s at stake – beginning more than two centuries ago.
A major problem for the framers at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 was how to create a presidency powerful enough to protect the nation, yet constrained enough to prevent a president from becoming a dictator.  Ultimately, the president was given power to enforce the law, conduct foreign relations and command the armed forces. Congress retained most other key powers, including the power of the purse and the power to declare war.
The framers knew they could not predict all that the future would bring. So they left the precise boundaries between presidential and congressional power unclear. This imprecision in our checks and balances has served the nation well for 230 years because it provides the flexibility to govern while preventing tyranny.  As scholars of constitutional law and history, we believe that President Trump’s assertion of a national emergency to build a wall along the Mexican border and the lawsuits filed in response together threaten the very imprecision that has helped maintain constitutional checks and balances for more than two centuries.
To best maintain that balance, this confrontation should be resolved in the political realm, not in the courts.
The signing of the Constitution of the United States. Architect of the Capitol; Howard Chandler Christy, artist
The national emergency
But the lawsuits over the emergency declaration will probably reach the Supreme Court, and the court might well hold Trump’s emergency declaration unconstitutional.  That would set a precedent that would unduly limit national emergency power that some future president may need.
Alternatively, the court could decide the lawsuits in Trump’s favor. That would invert the entire constitutional order, where Congress appropriates and the president spends. It would undercut the checks and balances provided by the framers and lead to an incredibly powerful presidency.
Either result the court reaches would set a bad precedent.
Congress can avert this problem.
The 1976 National Emergencies Act gives Congress power to invalidate a president’s declaration of emergency by a resolution passed by simple majorities of both houses.  Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House, announced that the House would vote Tuesday on a resolution to block the emergency declaration.  White House adviser Stephen Miller has already suggested that Trump would veto any such resolution.
“He’s going to protect his national emergency declaration. Guaranteed,” Miller said on Fox News. Both the House and the Senate would then need two-thirds majorities to override his veto.  We believe that for Congress to protect the constitutional order, its members must muster the necessary two-thirds majority.

Bill Maher's Red States/Blue States Lecture Once Again Shows Why Trump Won The 2016 Election

I admit that I don’t really dislike Bill Maher. Yes, he’s liberal. Yes, he mocks conservatives, but he also takes his side to task for their anti-free speech antics, their political correctness overload, and their obliviousness to how antithetical radical Islam is to Western values, and how it’s a problem. On the other hand, he’s totally part of the snobby elitist wing of liberal America who thinks that everyone else should be like the liberal Northeast or the Left Coast. You see folks…this is exactly how Trump won and lulled liberals into a false sense of security concerning Hillary Clinton. So, for Maher, concerning conservative and liberal America, it’s the former who’s jealous of the latter, or something (via Newsweek):

Bill Maher ridiculed red state voters in a segment about Amazon’s HQ2 locations, saying that the rich and educated people of America live in blue states.

“That’s why red state voters are so pissed off. They don’t hate us, they want to be us,” the Real Time host said on Friday night. “They want to go the party. It’s like we’re the British royal family and they’re Meghan Markle’s dad.”  Maher quoted Hillary Clinton, who has said that during the 2016 election she won the “places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product.” Clinton has also boasted that she won over voters in areas that are “optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.”

“Maybe that has something to do with why Trump voters are obsessed with ‘owning the libs.’ Because the libs own everything else,” Maher quipped. “The blue parts of America are having a big prosperity party while that big sea of red feels like their invitation got lost in the mail.”  The HBO host continued to pile on the insult for red state residents, saying that there are “no red carpets in Wyoming” and no one asks them what they’re wearing because “the answer is always Target.”

“We have chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee,” he said. “Our roofs have solar panels, theirs have last year’s Christmas lights.”

You see this is where Maher is totally wrong. I couldn’t care less about Wolfgang Puck or Chef Boyardee, but more importantly, Bill. Most of the country could only afford the latter. That’s what most of liberal America doesn’t get.  You don’t come off sounding educated when you boast about your night out eating overpriced meat, vegetables, and booze; you come off as a tool. Also, most people don’t have time to deal with this nonsense.

They have bills to pay, kids to feed, and now worry that socialist Democrats will creep into their slice of the world, pulverize it, and leave them destitute because…they’re red state residents. There’s also nothing wrong with shopping at Target or Wal-Mart, both of which could be the major employer of a small town. Again, who the hell cares what you’re wearing. It’s also not accurate that Blue State America is rolling in it. New Jersey is straight up trash concerning business-friendly environments, New York is seeing their income tax revenue drop because, and this goes for Jersey as well, these folks are leaving high-tax states for—shocker—red ones. But these folks are also bringing their liberal politics, which isn’t desirable either. No, Bill, I’d rather be dead than be forced to comply with liberal America’s code of what’s acceptable.

We hate you because you hate us. You can’t stand that families were supported through coal mining, law enforcement, and factory work. Jobs that didn’t require being forced to submit to the authoritarian ethos inherent in leftism that dominates college campuses. I don’t want to hate anyone. It’s a horrible feeling. Being angry all the time sucks, but you people start trouble all the time due to your intolerance over the fact that there are people who have differing views. Yes, I know, they get in the way of your plans to wreck the country through Medicare for All, free college, and the Green New Deal.
Now, conservatives need to recognize this. The Trump presidency should inject a sense of urgency into any card-carrying Republican that this is a state of war. That the country’s future is at stake in 2020 and that liberals are the enemy, they hate us, and they hate how you live. They will pop champagne over endless communities that they destroy in order to further the progressive cause, a Great Leap Forward but without the high body count. We need to hate the Left more than they hate us. It’s going to be uncomfortable at times, but there has to come a time where there’s recognition that we share nothing in common with the urban-based liberal. We just want to be left alone. That’s not necessarily saying we want to be emasculated, feeble, effete beat men that roam the landscapes of liberal America.
It’s more of a détente really. You stay over there with your socialist garbage and we’ll wallow over here in freedom. We’ll be content with raising our families the best we can, shopping at Target, looking for deals, and not having to worry about Wolfgang Puck or anything that snobby condescending liberal elites deem essential. And guess what, that’s okay. As I said, if they like living in a world that’s totally insane, please be my guest; this is America. But when you try to export your left-wing nonsense where it’s not wanted but continue to do so because you think you’re morally superior because of your liberal views (and designer brands), get the hell off my lawn.
Last note, Maher is a comedian. He knows his audience. And he has the right to bash Republicans on his show. We have the right to make sure his ideas, and the candidates who back them, fail by not voting for them in 2020. As always, folks–don’t forget to vote.

Bring it on, Mr. Mueller, bring it on. A nation is waiting

Bring it On, Mr. Mueller, Bring It On! Most Already Know Who’s Duping Who

Bring it On, Mr. Mueller, Bring It On!
Because the Robert Mueller Special Counsel hit a brick wall, coming up empty on the more than two year old Russian Collusion story, they will hand the investigation over to power-crazed Democrats to keep the baseless story rolling up to the 2020 election and even beyond.
The mainstream and social media will, of course, play the final report of the failed Mueller Investigation down, hoping to be able to continue to dupe the unwitting masses.
But independent upstart, talk show radio giant Rush Limbaugh yesterday let the spitting Mueller cat out of the bag.

Didn’t Mueller and his Hillary Clinton supporting lawyer team members know that when it comes to pinning down saboteurs, dogs always bark louder than hissing cats?

Mueller’s game plan is more machiavellian than Machiavelli.  In fact it’s been Niccolò  all the way.

To wit, with no evidence of any kind that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election, the multi-million dollar Mueller Investigation had run itself into the proverbial brick wall.

So the investigation wrap-up had to present something the public might believe and somehow convinced themselves that millions would be willing to believe that President Trump while not proven a Russian spy was, all the same, DUPED by the Russians:

…”You got Clapper here talking about “unwitting.” So I’ll tell you what I think now — and I’d be very happy to be wrong about this. (Rush Limbaugh, Feb. 20, 2019).

 “I think this report is gonna name Trump, and I think this report is going to position Trump as a dupe.  It’s exactly what Clapper has said here, that Trump is so stupid and so unqualified and so unprepared for this job that we should never, ever elect another president like this.  This man has been unwittingly duped by not just Putin.

“But it will allude to perhaps others on the world stage who have been able to make a fool of Donald Trump to the great detriment of the United States.  I think that’s what it’s gonna be.  I mean, that’s the easiest way to go.  To say he’s “unwitting,” you’re not accusing him of anything then.  You’re not accusing him of being a spy.  You’re not accusing him of being an asset.  You’re not accusing him of colluding. But you’re saying it happened anyway ’cause the guy’s too stupid to know when it was happening to him.

“I just can’t believe these people that have been lying through their teeth are now all of a sudden telling the truth that Mueller’s gonna report nothing, and I also can’t believe that Mueller would report nothing.  If there is nothing, they’re not gonna report — and the nothing report is gonna be used as some giant carrot that everybody wants to see but we’re not gonna be allowed to. That’s gonna make us want to see it even more. They’re gonna dangle it out there.”

But even with the mainstream and social media downplaying the Mueller announcement,  even with the Democrats picking up the Russians-stole-the-election ball and running with it, Mueller is now trying to scale a wall impossible to scale.
In reality, he has nothing left.
It all comes down to the word ‘DUPED’.  A majority of Americans know that it was not President Trump that was duped but the American people who are being Big Time duped by the Deep State and all of its Democrat surrogates, including Barack Obama operatives.
The good news is that a roomful of Democrats are running on hating Trump as their main platform, and as long as they are, none of them will be elected.
As for the special counsel wrap-up report expected to be delivered next week?
Bring it on, Mr. Mueller, bring it on.
A nation is waiting.


Where did it all begin?

Modern Day School Shootings: What is the actual root of the problem?

Modern Day School Shootings: What is the actual root of the problem?What is the primary cause for what we are seeing in the past 35 years with school shootings?
A) Prior to 1947, child raising was by role modeling parent’s strict upbringing, high expectations, moralist traditions, religious guidance, patterned family’s generations. The belt, wooden spoon, often the hand was commonly used in daily spankings.
B) 1947 Dr. Spock published his book on Child rearing, within a decade a perceptible change began to develop in American families. Under Spock’s influence, parents watched their children become sassy, contentious; increasing numbers became juvenile delinquents and criminals. Over the last 50 years this out-of-control behavior has led to a 300 percent increase in rate of violent crime, school shootings included.
C) As crime rates started to increase, SAT scores decreased. Teenagers exercised less moral restraint; started to reveal an increasing contempt for authority and religion.
D) Prescription drugs; millions of children are on medication for “behavioral‚” problems and depression (a replacement for parental supervision and discipline)—what are the long-term effects of these drugs?
Since 1983; medication has become as much a staple of child raising as Disney and McDonald’s. Kids pack their pills for K12 School or college along with their lunch money. Millions taking drugs for depression, anxiety; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We didn’t see these issues prior to 1983, they were there, but parents and teachers dealt with the problems, the children were all the better for it. “Medication administration to students is one of the most common health-related activities performed in school‚”—National Association of Nurses
Lack of discipline, morality, religious conviction, parental guidance at home, were guiding factors, prescription drugs were unheard of, restriction of activities, stern scoldings, took the place of drugs, it never permanently harmed a child, or destroyed their minds, or sent them off on shooting sprees!
How many “School shootings‚” did we have in previous decades?
  • January 1900 to December 1965 – 78 shootings, resulting in 55 deaths;
  • January 1966 to December 2018—370 shooting, 414 deaths.
  • Mesa Arizona, first was “Mass School‚” shooting, 17 killed.
The era of the AR styled rifle November 1965 till August 20, 1999, 34 years, there were 25 people killed in school shootings No ARs; with no more than 5 victims in one instance, average was 2.

August 20th, 1999 Columbine shooting. What caused this rampage? Psychiatrist & psychologist determined Klebold was Depressed/Suicidal, Harris was Homicidal and a Psychopath, a multitude of red flags from web pages to documentaries written in school, to neighbors’ concerns reported to the police.  No one did a thing! Sound familiar with Parkland?

Both Klebold and Harris were found to have Antidepressant drug Luvox, Paxil and Zoloft in their combined histories. “Antidepressants increase the risk compared to placebo of suicidal thinking and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies of major depressive disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders‚”
The prescription Drug abuse continues today; statistics show all these shooters 1999 to present showed multiple red flags‚” of mental instability and Prescription drug use prior to violence. Over the last decade, the number of children diagnosed with ADHD increased by 42%.
(CDC Statistics): Since 2011 there’s been a 50% increase in the number of preschool children between ages 4 & 5 who take ADHD medications. These children exhibit difficulty sleeping, have anxiety, and emotional fluctuations.Combine this with the cocktail Prescriptions for; Prozac, Celexa, Soloft, Paxil, Lexapro, Focalin, Clonidine. Prozac may increase suicidal thoughts or actions in children, teenagers, and young adults
Anyone see a pattern here? It is not the Gun! One drug leads to another; the combined side affects lead to tragedies like we are seeing in our schools.
Stop, look at the facts. Think maybe the prescription drugging of our students is a bigger causative factor for mass shootings, then an inanimate object like a gun? The gun is a tool like a vehicle, hammer, or knife. Do parents express concerns on this Prescription Drugging?
Overwhelming evidence points to the single largest common factor in all these shooting incidents; the perpetrators were actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had at some point before committing their crimes.
Don’t you think we need to seriously look at prescription drugs instead of guns?
Back in pre-1980 kids were not drugged to attend school! Parents instilled discipline, taught right from wrong, informed that parents were in charge. Teachers were the same with some restrictions. Back then God was an integral part of family life and education.
Blaming Republicans, Democrats, the NRA is not a valid concept! No gun laws are going to stop these tragedies! We the people need to make major changes in the way we live; stop drugging our children, so they can attend school with a clear and open mind; it is time to re-create the family unit, get involved with child’s lives from Kindergarten to College! Get children back to church.
Get legislators, Governors to start looking at the real problem; Give educators the authority to instill discipline in the school setting, and most critical, talk to family doctors to get children off these devastating mind-altering drugs!
Is this what you want your kids packing in their lunch box? One Psychiatrist stated: Taking your meds is often seen in High School and College today, as proof that a young person is dealing with their problems”. “But unfortunately, you are not going to learn coping skills if you are taking pills”.


Pray that you will survive and come out on the short-lived-other-side possibly shaken, but with an entirely new resolve and commitment to be part of the physical work and prayers to truly Make America Great Again

A Failed State

Fredy Lowe imageBy  —— Bio and ArchivesFebruary 24, 2019


A Failed StateAnd, In the Category of Failed States….

…The envelope please. Yes! The United States of America takes the Academy Award for officially becoming a Failed State. We must admit that Venezuela gave the USA a run for its money; and speaking of money, we recently reached the failure-milestone of $22 trillion dollars in debt. But, the coup de grâce came when former FBI Agent Andrew McCabe went on National television telling the world that he and a small group of co-conspirators had attempted a coup to remove the President of the United States thereby committing the act of treason. And, the very fact that he and his known collaborators were not immediately arrested and charged, has put the USA in hands down first place for their failure of a state and have made a complete mockery of our founding documents and the rule of law.
And, here to accept the award is…
There are easily hundreds of our politicians, or thousands of government workers, especially from the FBI or the DOJ, with literally thousands more who work in our complicit mainstream media, or lest we forget the contribution of millions of educators and their fully propagandized-Agenda-21-students, along with the tens of millions of our fellow citizens with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), each and every one, who would qualify to run up on that stage and accept this long sort-after-failing-award. Hopefully, whoever is chosen will be able to complete their acceptance speech before the building is fully engulfed in flames and torn apart by AntiFa and other on-the-payroll-rioters who also want to be recognized for their contribution to this magnificent accomplishment of total and complete failure.
The problem with all failed states, ones that are no longer governed by equality in the rule of law, is that there comes a time in the history of that state where it becomes too corrupt to repair the damage it had brought upon itself, where lawlessness and chaos now rule the day. And, although a Deep State cabal of corrupt government leaders and their aforementioned followers who number into the millions, have slowly rotted the soul of this once great nation for over a century, the United States of America had not officially entered into its final stage of moral collapse as a Failed State until November 2008, when it fraudulently elected a communist usurper as its President. And, ten years thereafter, their Manchurian Candidate is still in place from a walled-offed-resistance-command-center just two short blocks from the White House, where he receives his daily-briefings and orders from his Globalist paymasters.
The soft coup resistance plans never stop and may soon go hardline as the House draws up articles of impeachment. Their stated goal is to remove President Trump from office, where sadly our media has been exceptionally successful at spreading TDS propaganda and many of our ignorant fellow Americans would gladly agree.
I shared with you my beliefs in a recent article entitled, “The Third Term,” that the Capitol City of Washington, DC, is the most corrupt and evil city known to man. And, not to be overly theatrical, but I also believe that by the Ides of March, or shortly thereafter, we will have reached the pinnacle in time where the epic battle of good versus evil will be upon us. Never forget that we are at war!
Please consider these known and timely facts: The fake Mueller special counsel has come to an end and with it the Deep States’ ability to hide behind the protection-of-an-ongoing-investigation. The FISA documents ‘should soon’ be released which will name both the domestic and international soft coup collaborators to remove President Trump from office while the entire world will be watching.
Attorney General William Barr is now in place and, as I believe and have written of in the past, George W. Bush had a hand in convincing President Trump that AG Barr would be the one to head up the DOJ and begin the long-awaited process of unsealing the indictments and making the arrests. And, we will not have to wait two-years as we did with Jeff Sessions. No, as the end-game approaches we will know in a very short period of time whether AG Barr came to help or hinder.
This dangerous period cannot be overstated, as the Deep State and the Globalist cabal know their day of reckoning is at hand and are in complete panic mode. The falling-domino-effect we have seen characterized hundreds of times could easily begin with the first major arrests. But, for the sake of another visualization, under no circumstances will they put their collective hands upon their heads and go quietly into handcuffs. And, for those of you who have been praying for a long-overdue-perp-walk, or a Roger-Stone-like-SWAT-Team-assault on their homes or offices, that will not happen either. Although, some will be covertly taken in the middle of the night, you can be assured that CNN producers will not be forewarned. Some may attempt to run, but very few will be successful. And, some might attempt to take their own lives, while few will be successful.
Almost as if watching it on a split-screen-TV, the good news on-the-right-side would be that it will have finally begun. The bad news on-the-left will show that only one half of our fellow citizens will agree, while the hard-core of the other half, almost on key, will take to the streets in protest, where mob rule could get ugly, very quickly. Declaring Martial Law with the US military to keep order for periods of time in a number of major cities is highly likely to occur. Also be aware of the likelihood of retaliation by a number of pre-planned false flag events taking place. Such an event or simultaneous events would be staged for the purpose of distraction, which could possibly include mass shootings at a sporting event, transportation facilities, shopping malls, a school or a church; any place where large numbers of people gather for the greatest impact. My advice is to plan ahead and at first sign that it-has-begun be flexible and prepared by staying away from any large gatherings of people.
The obvious flip-side to all of this is that nothing will happen. That the USA will plod along as a totally-bankrupt-and-divided-failed-state. That no arrest will be made and that we will have, in fact, become too corrupt to make any attempt at repairing the damage we have done to ourselves. That Attorney General, Bill Barr, will continue as his predecessors have and slow-walk everything through the well-established-government-bureaucracy until that day comes when President Trump finds himself completely overwhelmed and is finally removed from office. That day may also drag out over the next two years when President Trump is removed by massive voter fraud in the 2020 elections. What then will patriotic conservative Americans choose to do? Or by then will it be too late? We have today reached that proverbial fork-in-the-road where the future of our country depends on what happens in our near future and how the American people react to these events.
Surely, some of you are thinking that these are just more conspiracy theories meant only to scare you. Please note that if you consider yourself to be aware and do not process some level of constructive fear for our future, you never will. But, as I have also written in the past, there is no other way forward for the United States of America – pain is coming. Our ungodliness has brought us to this juncture. And, it is all so very simple to change. First we must trust in God and that, if you turn to His face, He will forgive our transgressions and heal our land. Pray that you will survive and come out on the short-lived-other-side possibly shaken, but with an entirely new resolve and commitment to be part of the physical work and prayers to truly Make America Great Again.


Watch: Can mixing household cleaners kill you? Worth watching

WASHINGTON—When the bathroom starts looking grimy, and it’s time to whip out yellow gloves, the only thing that matters is getting the job done quickly. So you open the cabinet, see a bunch of bottles and think, “Hey, this cleans, and that cleans, so why not mix them all together? That’ll kill dirt and grime even faster!” Think again –– your all-purpose cleaning cocktail could turn a bad day even worse. Can death by toilet-bowl cleaning really happen? Today on Reactions, you’re about to find out:

Mayfield Minute – February 24, 2019

Good Morning!

           Since the 1960s, when the nation watched Alan Shepard become the first American in space, Florida has been the leader in space exploration. As this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, it is a great time to reflect on Florida’s aerospace legacy and look toward modernizing and re-purposing that legacy to handle a new commercial space future.
          On February 19th, the legislature hosted Florida Space Day where advocates walked the halls to raise awareness about the significance of the aerospace industry and its impact on Florida’s economy. I had the opportunity to meet with industry leaders from the Space Coast including SpaceX, Northrup Grummond, Aerojet Rocketdyne, United Launch Alliance, Florida Institute of Technology and Space Florida. With the Space Shuttle retirement, it is imperative that government and industry work together to create a cohesive and successful vision for Florida’s role in space exploration.
        On that same day, President Donald Trump signed Space Policy Directive 4, establishing a new space-focused extension of the U.S. Air Force to be housed at the United States Space Command (USSPACECOM). Governor Ron DeSantis immediately sent a letter to the President requesting that the USSPACECOM be headquartered in the most logical location, Florida.
       Governor DeSantis said, “As the world’s premier gateway to space, Florida has been the departure point for more cargo and humans to space than any other place in the world, so I believe our state is the logical choice to base this new command. In addition to my request to the President, I have also directed Space Florida to make it a top priority to pursue and secure this new headquarters here in Florida.”
       Firefly Aerospace obviously agrees, as the company announced this week that they have chosen to both manufacture and launch their lunar payloads from Cape Canaveral. Firefly Aerospace is investing more than $50 million and expects to generate over 200 new jobs on the Space Coast to develop and deliver cargo to the moon for NASA’s lunar outpost.
      Florida’s growing commercial space industry provides jobs for nearly 100,000 Floridians in over 470 aerospace and aviation companies that do business in the state. These companies export more than $7.6 billion in goods annually, providing a major economic impact to Florida. USSSPACECOM headquarters would significantly reinforce the positive impact the space industry has on Florida’s economy.
      I consider it a great honor to represent all of the citizens and visitors of District 17. Please share this link with your friends and family so that they too can sign up for the Mayfield Minute.
If you or someone you know needs my assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact my office. My staff and I are here to serve you!
Sponsored Legislation
This week I sponsored the following legislation:
SB 1180: Consumer Protection from Nonmedical Changes to Prescription Drug Formularies, also known as the Bait-and-Switch-Bill, requires health plans to deliver on the prescription coverage benefits they market and sell for the year. This will help ensure that the benefits Florida Families sign up for during open enrollment are the benefits they actually receive.  Americans who are covered through Medicare are already protected from these bait-and-switch tactics, but there are no statutes in Florida to protect consumers who have commercial health plan coverage from midyear benefit changes. At any time during the health plan year, insurers are free to increase out of pocket costs, enact restrictions on coverage, or remove coverage of a prescription medication altogether.
I believe that if Floridians can’t change their health plan in the middle of the year, insurers shouldn’t be able to either. This bill will ensure that Florida families have access to the pharmacy benefits that were marketed and sold to them for the year.
SB 1196: Vacation Rentals requires operators of vacation rentals to have a license issued by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, and that the license number be on public display and included in any advertisements. The vacation rental hosting platform must also be registered with the division, and have an available service agent in the state. The hosting platform will also be required to maintain records for reporting.
SB 1238: Safety of Religious Institutions authorizes a church, synagogue or other religious institution to allow a concealed weapon licensee to carry a firearm on that property.
SB 1278: Biosolids Management specifies regulation for biosolids management in order to minimize the migration of harmful nutrients that impair our water bodies. The bill also calls for innovative technologies in biosolids processing to be implemented as a means of protecting our water resources and water quality.  This bill requires the Florida Department of Environmental Protection adopt rules for biosolids management to include stringent land application rates and monitoring requirements that will ensure that nitrogen and phosphorus do not impair our water quality.
Florida Senate Committee Activity
This week was the final week of Interim Committee meetings before the legislative session begins on March 5th.
The Appropriations Committee met for a presentation and update on Medical Marijuana from the Florida Coalition for Medical Marijuana Research and Education. Members also favorably reported SB 212, which extends the sunset provision for the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children.
During the Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Environment, and General Government, Chief Financial Officer, Jimmy Patronis presented the Department of Financial Services budget for the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year. This included funding to update the state’s accounting and cash management systems, strengthen IT security operations, and investigate fraudulent activity. The committee favorably reported SB 92: C-51 Reservoir Project. SB 92 revises provisions for Phase II of the C-51 reservoir project, a water storage facility located in western Palm Beach County. Members also heard Senator presentations on their local funding initiative requests.
The Health Policy Committee reported the following bills favorably out of committee: SB 302 authorizes Medicaid nonemergency medical transportation services to be provided to certain Medicaid recipients, SB 592 Prescription Drug Monitoring Program on parameters for the substance abuse control program, SB 354: Immunization Registry outlines vaccine record requirements for certain colleges, and SB 434 which establishes requirements for surgical care of children in ambulatory surgical centers.
The Children, Families, and Elder Affairs Committee met to consider the following bills: SB 102 requires that recovery residences obtain certification before commencing operation, SB 128 expands the list of incidents that constitute harm to a child’s welfare to include seat belt violations, SB 318 prohibits the Department of Children and Families from the names of school personnel who provide information during a protective investigation, SB 452 establishes Elder Abuse Fatality Review Teams in the judicial circuits, SB 454 specifies that confidential information obtained by an Elder Abuse Fatality Review Team remains protected, SB 528 requires a specific level of screening for peer specialists working in mental health programs and facilities, SB 7048 requiring service providers to disclose information from a clinical record under certain circumstances where there are threats to cause seriously bodily injury or death. All were reported out of committee favorably.
I appeared before the Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Tourism and Economic Development to present funding requests to maintain funding for the Big Brothers Big Sisters School-to-Work program, and to relocate the historic Laura Riding Jackson cracker house to the Indian River State College campus.
I also presented funding requests to the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services to support local efforts to eliminate homelessness among our Veterans, and for funding for mental health services provided by the University of Florida Health Center in Indian River County.
All committee meetings are available online through the Florida Channel. To access the committee hearing agendas and materials, please visit the Florida Senate website.
District Highlights
Public Meeting on Bonds for Passenger Rail Project
The Florida Development Finance Corporation (FDFC) has scheduled a TEFRA hearing to consider the issuance of $950 million in exempt facility bonds for All Aboard Florida’s (AFF) passenger rail project.
Friday, March 1, 2019 at 9:00 AM
Residence Inn Tallahassee Universities at the Capitol
Rattler Room
600 West Gaines Street, Tallahassee, FL
Remember that in October 2017, the FDFC approved $600 million in tax exempt private activity bonds to fund construction of Phase 1, the south segment of its passenger railroad between Miami and West Palm Beach. Then in August 2018, the FDFC approved an additional $1.15 billion in tax exempt private activity bonds for Phase II, the West Palm Beach to Orlando segment.
The public notice specifies that the proposed $950 million in bonds would be used to finance the cost of acquisition, construction, improvement and equipping the privately owned and operated rail system. AFF would utilize the existing Florida East Coast Railway corridor to Cocoa, and then veer west with new rail construction along the State Route 528 right-of-way. The notice also specifies that passenger rail stations are to be located in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and at Orlando International Airport.
AAF ridership and revenue reports for the Miami to Palm Beach segment have been well below projections, and last week the company cancelled plans for an initial public offering after financial reports showed that the project has negative cash flow.
In addition to the underwhelming ridership and revenue information, I have concerns related to the safety and cost of this project to our citizens and taxpayers. I encourage you to voice your concerns and continue to follow this important issue.

How the Socialists Will Steal Election 2020

Judi McLeod image

By  —— Bio and ArchivesFebruary 24, 2019


How the Socialists Will Steal Election 2020The key to understanding how socialists posing as progressives are trying to take over Election 2020 is understanding exactly who Senator Bernie Sanders really is.  Everyone who can read or write knows Sanders is a lifelong socialist who made it rich riding on the coat tails of Capitalist America.  What some folks may not know is that he’s in the race merely to make Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden et al look good.
He’s there to frighten folk into voting for a progressive rather than a socialist—never knowing that they are one and the same thing.
.Bottom line: Sensible folks will want to run from Sanders and run to whomever the Democrats send out against President Donald Trump .  What the Dems are trying to con voters into thinking is that they will be safer voting PROGRESSIVE over SOCIALISM, without ever hinting that Harris, Booker, Obama and Biden are socialists too.  As shopworn and doddering as Sanders is, this is not the first but the second time the Democrats sent him out to the voting public as a Straw Man.  In the primaries leading to Election 2016, he was there to make sure that Hillary Clinton and not some other ambitious progressive got the DNC green light.
No one, including Sanders ever explained how he came out of the primaries as the owner of three one million dollar mansions, allegedly for pulling off the Straw Man scam.  Millennials are starting to show signs that they don’t like being represented by a doddering, 78-year-old leader, too akin to Democrat establishment types such as Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, all as old as the hills, so they’re settling for lots of face time for the bold as brass Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).
In age, AOC’s as fresh as a baby compared to the Dinosaur Democrat Old Guard.
Count on hearing the elderly Dems dissing AOC but bear in mind that it’s all part of the act.
If people just listened to her voice rather than just reading about her Democrat supported Green New Deal, they’d have AOC’s number.  She sounds like bratty, know-it-all,29-year-old teenager because that’s exactly what she is.  The Royal Flush in the current Democrat poker game is that they’re headed to 2020 in an ongoing catfight between their moderate and radical members.  It’s all for show as their end goal remains the same; Impeaching Donald Trump and replacing him with a Democrat ‘moderate’ progressive on Election Day.
Nowhere does the manufactured shift in the Democrat divide show itself more clearly than in Barack Obama, self-acclaimed U.S. “Resistance” leader, running the election campaign from the shadows.  After a lifetime of aiding and abetting, inviting them into the White House and otherwise promoting them, Obama is now openly slamming hip-hop and rap music stars for perpetuating stereotypes rooted in toxic masculinity by surrounding themselves with “video vixens”.
‘If you are very confident about your sexuality you don’t have to have eight women around you twerking’,” Obama said. (DailyMail, Feb. 20, 2019)  ‘Let’s face it a lot of hip hop and rap music is built around me showing how I got more money than you, I can disrespect you,’ he said.”  “He added that wearing gold chains and excessive twerking can sometimes point to vulnerability rather than confidence.”
  Obama created the initiative My Brother’s Keeper as a youth support and violence prevention group during his time in office.  As “Resistance” Leader, he’s now turning the tables on a passionate if not major group that supported his two presidential campaigns.

“Obama then touched on hip-hop’s portrayal of male sexuality and brought up the twerking joke adding, ‘I’ve got one woman who I’m very happy with. And she’s a strong woman.’  (Daily Mail)

Days before Obama told boys and men of color, who flocked from across the nation to attend the conference, hailing from Los Angeles, New York and Nashville that they should be more like his wife, Michelle. That’s because he’s pushing his wife for a third term in office but apparently thinks the boys and men who come out to hear him are too stupid to realize.
Are they now unknowing and even unwitting members of a sizeable Michelle Obama voting bloc?
Look more closely at what the Obama Socialist Progressives are doing to America, last standing bastion of the free.
While the masses are distracted by the likes of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and hoaxer, Jussie Smollett,  their largely underground groups such as ‘Justice Democrats’ are filling in the ranks.

To the mainstream and social media Feinstein is a “moderate” Democrat

“Some of Justice Democrats’ potency stems from the viral might of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her close ties to the group. (NYT, Feb. 23, 2019) We have it from the New York Times that the Justice Democrats, who helped make OAC, are already eyeing their next targets.  NYT describes Justice Democrats as “a small grass-roots organization that burst onto the political scene last year after coordinating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning primary defeat of Joseph Crowley of New York, the No. 4 Democrat in the House at the time.”
“…But more are coming, and the organization’s ambitions to replace more centrist Democrats with liberal candidates have inspired other clusters of insurgency — and pushed progressive policies to the forefront of the liberal agenda. The conflicts — both generational and ideological — burst into the open again on Friday when children with the Sunrise Movement, a youth climate-change advocacy group, pressed Senator Dianne Feinstein, a moderate California Democrat, to embrace the so-called Green New Deal in an extended confrontation that instantly went viral.”

To the mainstream and social media Feinstein is a “moderate” Democrat.

“Justice Democrats, built in part by former staff members for Senator Bernie Sanders’s 2016 presidential campaign, has made some lawmakers uneasy — and invited comparisons to conservative groups that have bedeviled Republican leaders and pulled that party to the right. (NYT)
“In 2018, Justice Democrats endorsed 78 candidates and recruited 12 to run for office, serving as a grass-roots political consulting firm and jump-starting campaigns. Out of those 12, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez was the only one who won her general election. Six other endorsed candidates — three incumbents and three freshmen — also made it to Congress. All seven are in the House.
“Candidates are required to pledge not to take any corporate political action committee or lobbying money, and are expected to be aligned with Justice Democrats’ platform, which includes abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, advocating free public colleges and trade schools, and ending the death penalty.
“Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ms. Ilhan Omar, all Justice Democrats candidates, have already pushed strong climate change measures, higher taxes on the wealthy and support for a Palestinian state into the mainstream debate surrounding Democratic ideals.
The headline in the NYT print version tells where all this is going: ‘Liberal Group Is Seeking Its Next Ocasio-Cortez. (Or Two. Or Five or Ten’).
The socialism of Bernie Sanders has metastasized in the New Green Deal imposed on America by Ocasio-Cortez and is spreading gangrene like throughout the land.
The only thing capable of stopping it is a freight train with voters as cagey and cunning as the gangrenous socialists are.

Socialist on an ego-trip. How long before she puts on a uniform with a dozen medals?

Lower refunds amplify calls to restore key tax deduction


Complaints about lower refunds and higher taxes are amplifying calls from Northeast and West Coast leaders to do away with the GOP tax law’s limit on the deduction for state and local taxes.
The limit on the tax break, known as the SALT deduction, has been one of the most controversial provisions of the tax law, with lawmakers from both parties in high-tax states such as New York and New Jersey arguing that the deduction cap unfairly punishes their voters.
A group of Democratic governors held a press conference on Friday to press Congress to restore the full SALT deduction.
“It is appropriate that we’re having this discussion in the middle of tax season as [the deduction cap] is gutting our middle class and it’s just plain wrong,” said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy.
The governors’ press conference comes after New Jersey Democrats Rep. Bill Pascrell and Sen. Bob Menendez earlier this month introduced a bill to restore the full SALT deduction. It’s one of several bipartisan bills that lawmakers have introduced this year to restore the full SALT deduction, and it has the backing of a number of lawmakers in the Northeast, Illinois and California, including Rep. Chris Smith (N.J.), one of the few House Republicans who voted against the 2017 law and remains in office.
In an op-ed for The North Jersey Record on Friday, Pascrell and Menendez called the SALT deduction cap “a main culprit for the tax sticker shock in New Jersey and other high cost-of-living states.”
The tax reform package that President Trump signed in December 2017 capped the SALT deduction at $10,000. Republicans decided to limit the deduction because they thought the tax break was subsidizing higher state taxes and because limiting it could raise revenue to help pay for tax cuts elsewhere in the new law.
But the new cap faced strong opposition from a bipartisan group of lawmakers in high-tax states. Several House Republicans from New York, New Jersey and California joined Democrats in voting against the measure.
Most taxpayers, even in high-tax states, are expected to receive a reduction in their tax liability. For some taxpayers, the limit on the SALT deduction will be more than offset by other changes in the 2017 law, such as lower rates and a larger child tax credit. Additionally, some taxpayers previously had their SALT deduction curbed by the alternative minimum tax but will no longer be subject to that tax.
But taxpayers who relied heavily on the SALT deduction in the past may also be among those most upset during filing season.
IRS data from the first three weeks of this year’s filing season showed a decline in the average refund. Experts with major tax preparation companies said that homeowners in high-tax states may be among those seeing smaller refunds if they didn’t adjust their tax withholding this year because their amount of deductions may have declined.
The size of someone’s refund and their tax liability are two separate issues. Those with smaller refunds did not necessarily get a tax increase, but instead may have just had their taxes withheld from their paychecks more accurately throughout the year.
However, in a more significant development, some taxpayers who previously relied heavily on the SALT deduction may actually be seeing an increase in their tax liability for 2018 due to the $10,000 cap.
Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.), a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, said that, because of the cap, some people in his state “are finding as they’re doing their filings that they’re ending up paying more” during the first filing season under the new law.




Progressive America is following the
same path as Nazi Germany

This speech will open your eyes in many ways. Kitty Werthmann, was raised in Austria, explains how Nazi Germany managed to walk right into Austria and take over the country with such ease.
She describes a country that suffered financially, with lots of violence, and union strikes that drove factories to shutter their windows. Poverty was everywhere., and jobs were scarce. But in Germany, right next door, from 1933, they heard that the Germans had a much better life and everyone had a Volkswagen.

The Dangers of Nationalist Socialism

The most important way to gradually take over the minds of the masses is via control over the flow of information. Kitty explains that Hitler instituted laws that brought his speeches via radio into the homes of everyone. Then he raised taxes to a ridiculously high level of 70%, and provided work for everyone. So, people had equality and jobs, but the bulk of the money was controlled by the State. That is called Socialism. Once that form of domination was set up, it wasn’t long before the people could be pressured into a similar mindset of Nazi Germany. Education became nationalized. One thing after another was controlled by the government. Before long, Hitler became the new false God, and Germany was all that mattered.

The Dangers of Socialism

Whenever there is a centralization of too much power in any one entity, there is major danger around the corner. Power tends to be an addictive drug. People who have absolute power tend to want even more absolute power. So, any form of raising taxes to a high level or enlargement of the government to mammoth proportions, can be a horrible choice. Socialism has never succeeded anywhere because so much of it is based on taking money and power from individuals and redistributing it in order to centralize more power in the government.
The scariest aspect of this speech is that so many aspects of nationalization in Austria are similar to some of the key agenda items of progressives today. We need to be on guard and not let our society unravel due to wrong choices of a few that will impact on everyone.
