Remember how Obama’s IRS targeted Conservative groups – ESPECIALLY Tea Party groups – to prevent Conservatives from campaigning against Obama?

 

Remember Lois Lerner was involved in IRS targeting then took the 5th in Congressional hearings to save her buttocks? She is now retired with a healthy pension. Thanks to Sixth Circuit Appeals Court, Lerner is going to be forced to testify.

 

Remember how the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen did next to zero to bring IRS culprits to justice? Apparently, President Trump has forgot to drain the IRS portion of the swamp because Koskinen is still the IRS Commissioner.

Jenny Beth Martin on IRS scandal: ‘We need to know what happened’

In a recent interview with Fox & Friends’ Steve Doocy, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin demands that testimony from today’s hearings into the IRS targeting scandal be made public so we, the American people, are able to “get to the bottom” of why some groups applying for tax-exempt status were singled-out for added scrutiny during the Obama administration.

 

[W]e need to know what happened. They need to testify and the public needs to hear that testimony to be able to get to the bottom of what happened to us so we can finally have justice,” Jenny Beth said of the former top IRS officials, who requested their testimony be sealed out of concern for their well-being.

 

Numerous Americans were targeted under Lois Lerner’s scheme at the IRS, and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen stonewalled congressional investigation into the matter. Click here to join Jenny Beth Martin in demanding justice for those Americans targeted by the IRS and for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s immediate dismissal.

 

Impeach Koskinen

 

The IRS scandal, and continued calls for our elected representatives to follow through on their promise to fully repeal Obamacare, keep us busy every day at Tea Party Patriots. As health-insurer Aetna announces it’s getting out of Obamacare, we’re reminded daily that a health-insurance infrastructure that places more power in the hands of government arbitrators than it does in the hands of the American people is fundamentally un-American. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots encourage our lawmakers to fully repeal Obamacare.

 

America’s future – as with the Obamacare repeal – can sometimes look bleak as lawmakers continue to go soft on their promises, but don’t lose heart. When our mainstream news media is more concerned with how many scoops of ice cream President Trump prefers eating compared to his guests (yes, this “story” actually garnered a headline), you know it’s time now, more than ever, to get America back on track and tackling the issues critical to our continued well-being and our children’s well-being – something former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich emphasizes in a recent column for Fox News.

 

“Republicans must decide if they are going to fight for what they believe in or retreat to the tenuous safety of the beltway bubble,” he says.

 

One promising development is the more than 120 seats on federal lower courts President Trump has the opportunity to try and fill – assuming Republicans and some Democrats can come together as they did during the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

 

As Jenny Beth says in a Washington Times opinion piece, “What’s better than another Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court? How about another Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court and another 10 Antonin Scalias on lower federal courts, ready to rule and move up when the time is right?” Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge our senators to confirm to our courts judges who respect our Constitution!

Tea Party Patriots Core Principles

 

Tea Party Patriots stands for every American, and is home to millions who have come together to pursue the American Dream and to keep that Dream alive for their children and grandchildren.

 

What unites the tea party movement is the same set of core principles that brought America together at its founding, that kindled the American Dream in the hearts of those who struggled to build our nation, and made the United States of America the greatest, most successful country in world history.

 

At its root the American Dream is about freedom. Freedom to work hard and the freedom to keep the fruits of your labor to use as you see fit without harming others and without hindering their freedom. Very simply, three guiding principles give rise to the freedom necessary to pursue and live the American Dream:

Judi McLeod writes of the eventual failure of the unhinged Dem Party and the Leftist MSM efforts to impeach President Trump. My take on her reasoning is that the Americans are not idiot fools believing everything the Left says which is nothing but transparent desperation.

 

The below quote is the tease McLeod uses to inspire the reader to proceed:

 

How do you IMPEACH a president like that, pretenders-to-the-presidency Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other pitchfork and torch carriers in the ‘Impeach Trump cabal’? Only by utterly ignoring all sanity.

Impeach Trump Cabal Destined to Come to a Screeching Halt

 

By Judi McLeod

May 21, 2017

Canada Free Press

 

IF a malevolent MainstreamMedia-Politically-Progressive Complex can, at will, take down President Donald Trump with baseless accusations and innuendo, then what’s to stop them from doing the same to any private citizen from any walk of life?

 

Saul Alinsky originated freeze, isolate, charge, find guilty without truth or trial is what Democrats use to get rid of all enemies, not just presidents they hate.

 

Impeachment, Democrat style, overrides the rule of law, tosses truth out the nearest White House window and ignores the pain-filled cries of the people. Forced impeachment that grows from a psychopathic obsession translates into to the rule of politics over natural law.

 

Unhinged Democrats, desperadoes in exile, are courting anarchy in their obsession to remove a duly elected president from office

November’s election left the Democrats in exile, a state in which they landed on their very own. With MSM help they decided to go on as if Hillary Clinton and not Donald Trump won.

 

Unhinged Democrats, desperadoes in exile, are courting anarchy in their obsession to remove a duly elected president from office. They need to get a grip on reality; to get past the screeching of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters. They need to recognize that a hate-filled ex-president claiming leadership from a return to community organizer activism is not real reality.

 

It’s coming on to the dreamy month of June, and amid the droning of pollen-seeking bees, we’re hearing every day about a coming FORECD Impeachment.

 

Democrats who count on survival as vital should be waking up to the real possibility of remaining in exile for the foreseeable future having, under Obama’s reign, lost thousands of colleagues in elections like the one that brought Donald Trump to the Oval Office.

 

Ironically, they have become the same breed they call their political opponents: “Dinosaurs”.

 

There’s another world beyond America that puts the economy and the continuation of the Free West above Impeachment.

 

As recently as this weekend, came the most visceral of truth that Ambassador of Hate Barack Obama’s 8-year-long mission to sow hatred of America among her perceived enemies was a big fail.

 

Trump got the royal treatment in Saudi Arabia—and he never had to grovel to the Saudi king to get it.

 

Obama, then president Obama bowed deeply to Saudi King Salman in 2009. On a red carpet rolled out for him, President Trump shook hands with the Saudi king.

 

Groveling doesn’t earn a world leader respect, it only shows weakness and vulnerability. Melania Trump didn’t wear a head covering as Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton did on Muslim turf. Paying lip service to a foreign culture doesn’t necessarily cut it.

 

Pictures prove that Obama’s last bow wasn’t to King Salman:

 

VIDEO: Obama Bows to Saudi King

 

 

“Then-President Obama also notably bowed to Japanese Emperor Akihito:(DailyCaller)

 

VIDEO: Barack Obama bows to Japan's Emperor Akihito

 

         

 

“Obama also bowed to then-President of Mexico Felipe Calderon in 2012. Finally, in 2013, Obama shook hands with and bowed to Cuban communist Raul Castro.”

 

How the public feels about Obama’s deep bow and Trump’s handshake can be read in a single Tweet:

 

Trump doesn’t bow & Melania doesn’t wear a headscarf. America is finally being represented properly overseas. pic.twitter.com/VTZDqngh7S— Alana Mastrangelo (@ARmastrangelo) May 20, 2017 [Blog Editor: I couldn’t get the Twitter link to work. The Twitter handle @ARmastrangelo is to Alana Mastrangelo. The Tweet for 5/20/17 pertaining to President Trump visit to Saudi Arabia says this: “Unlike Obama, there will be no apology tour with President Trump. Ever. America is back.”

  

In 2009, Obama sent a message back to the masses: ‘I bow to the Saudi king no matter how Americans may feel about it’.

 

This is the message President Trump sent back to the same masses yesterday morning: ‘I am your president and present America properly when I’m overseas.’

 

As Newt Gingrich so aptly puts it: “Sadly, our own nation’s news media is doing more to undermine America’s image than Al Jazeera or Pravda combined.”

 

How do you IMPEACH a president like that, pretenders-to-the-presidency Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other pitchfork and torch carriers in the ‘Impeach Trump cabal’?

 

Only by utterly ignoring all sanity.

During the Primary/Caucus period of the GOP nomination for POTUS, I was not a supporter of Donald Trump. My support was behind stalwart Conservative Senator Ted Cruz. The same Senator dubbed by then candidate Trump as ly’n Ted. (Man, that annoyed me.)

 

But much to my then surprise, The Donald won the GOP nomination. Regardless of my distrust Trump’s Conservative bona fides, I was hugely amused with the rancorous needling of Leftists with campaign promises that sent the Left – including the Left Stream Media – into apoplectic fits of temper tantrums.

 

AND SO, I got behind Donald Trump even though the Leftist MSM was convinced by their polling that there was no way that Crooked Hillary could be beaten in the 2016 election.

 

AND THEN the Trump revolution had manifested. The American voters in a majority of States thumbed their noses at the Leftist MSM as The Donald became President Elect on election night 2016.

 

That is when ALL H – E – Double Hockey Sticks broke out among the Leftist Dems who were certain the continuation of the dismantling of our American Constitution to transform our nation into a godless Big Brother State would continue with Crooked Hillary after the corrupt President Obama left Office.

 

With that in mind, I just read a fascinating essay that I believe rings very true by James Downton at The Federalist. Downton believes a coup d’état began to dismantle Trump’s Administration and came under attack even before he took his oath of Office as President of the United States of America. A coup that as yet has no defined leader but rather is perpetrated by what many call the Fourth Estate of our government – Federal Bureaucracy. In case you are unaware or didn’t pay attention in High School, the Federal Bureaucracy has ZERO standing in the U.S. Constitution as an independent Branch of the Federal Government. This Federal Bureaucracy stretches among the three Constitutional Branches of government; viz., Executive, Legislative and Judicial.

 

I should point out that the author Downton goes out of his way to say his essay is not a defense for President Trump but rather a condemnation of this Fourth Estate coup d’état undermining the U.S. Constitution and the Republic.

 

Here’s a tease from Downton’s:

 

Arguably, what has been branded as “The Resistance” — but in actuality is the totalitarian might of the administrative state and their partisan allies — began with the Democratic Party’s scorched-earth campaign against the political nominations of the Trump White House. But beyond the partisan rancor of the legitimate and often frustrating nomination process, more sinister forces were at work.

We Are Watching A Slow-Motion Coup D’etat

This coup d’etat is not only about President Trump. It represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.

By James Downton

MAY 19, 2017

The Federalist

 

It’s nearly incontrovertible that a slow-motion coup d’etat is now taking place. Since November 9, 2016, forces within the U.S. government, media, and partisan opposition have aligned to overthrow the Electoral College winner, Donald Trump.

 

To achieve this they have undermined the institutions of the Fourth Estate, the bureaucratic apparatus of the U.S. government, and the very nature of a contentious yet affable two-party political system. Unlike the coup d’etat that sees a military or popular figure lead a minority resistance or majority force into power over the legitimate government, this coup d’etat is leaderless and exposes some of the deepest fissures in our system of government. This coup d’etat represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.

 

This article outlines the mechanisms, institutions, and nature of this coup d’etat; not in defense of President Donald Trump — who has proven himself bereft of the temperament of a successful president — but in defense of the institutions of our republic that are now not just threatened, but may very well be on the verge of collapse.

 

‘1984’ Is An Apt Comparison, But Not As the Left Thinks

 

Shortly after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, a sort of “meme” appeared among activists on the political left comparing the status of the United States to that of George Orwell’s “1984.” “Think pieces” from The New Yorker, CNN, The Atlantic, and Salon drew comparisons between President Trump and the brutally authoritarian future Orwell envisioned. In April of this year, screenings of the film version of Orwell’s dystopian novel were hosted around the world. “1984” surged up Amazon’s bestseller list. The tragedy of this exercise was that the comparison was very apt, but for different reasons.

 

The villain of “1984” isn’t a “man” but an entity — a bureaucracy with an authoritarian impulse. Big Brother isn’t so much a man or a leader but a symbol of the omnipotent reach of the bureaucratic state that dominated the dystopian future. The fear of an elected leader turning into a tyrant — as the political Left and some on the political Right feared in Trump — doesn’t play into the narrative of the novel. Rather, it is the fear of a nearly faceless administrative state; a state that has achieved a near totality in terms of tyranny.

 

This fear of the administrative state was a key feature among at least two individuals writing at the Claremont Review of Books, Publius Decius Mus and professor Angelo Codevilla. Decius’s “The Flight 93 Election” essay acted as a sort of rallying cry for some conservatives and small-“r” republican intellectuals against the very real fear that a Hillary Clinton victory would cement the totalizing power of the administrative state — that is career bureaucrats and administrators who view the virtues of the republic as something to be washed away and remade in their own “progressive” image. Decius writes:

 

If conservatives are right about the importance of virtue, morality, religious faith, stability, character and so on in the individual; if they are right about sexual morality or what came to be termed “family values”; if they are right about the importance of education to inculcate good character and to teach the fundamentals that have defined knowledge in the West for millennia; if they are right about societal norms and public order; if they are right about the centrality of initiative, enterprise, industry, and thrift to a sound economy and a healthy society; if they are right about the soul-sapping effects of paternalistic Big Government and its cannibalization of civil society and religious institutions; if they are right about the necessity of a strong defense and prudent statesmanship in the international sphere—if they are right about the importance of all this to national health and even survival, then they must believe—mustn’t they?—that we are headed off a cliff.

 

For Decius, Trump represents the final option to head off the transformation of the American republic into an administrative state where bureaucrats would wield an immutable regulatory dictatorship over the American citizenry.

 

Codevilla, prescient, went a step further and surmised that the republic was already dead; the Caesarism of an imperial presidency had already usurped it:

 

Electing either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump cannot change that trajectory. Because each candidate represents constituencies hostile to republicanism, each in its own way, these individuals are not what this election is about. This election is about whether the Democratic Party, the ruling class’s enforcer, will impose its tastes more strongly and arbitrarily than ever, or whether constituencies opposed to that rule will get some ill-defined chance to strike back. Regardless of the election’s outcome, the republic established by America’s Founders is probably gone. But since the Democratic Party’s constituencies differ radically from their opponents’, and since the character of imperial governance depends inherently on the emperor, the election’s result will make a big difference in our lives.

 

If asked at the time of authorship, one doubts either man could have predicted the swiftness in which the administrative state would be able to consolidate power and isolate the presidency. Yet that is what has exactly occurred. With the aid of the media and the Democratic Party, the institutions of the republic are crippled, the levers of power having been seized not by the elected but by the unelected bureaucratic state — from ideologues at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to the partisans and paranoid who inhabit our intelligence community.

 

The Administrative State Versus the American People

 

Arguably, what has been branded as “The Resistance” — but in actuality is the totalitarian might of the administrative state and their partisan allies — began with the Democratic Party’s scorched-earth campaign against the political nominations of the Trump White House. But beyond the partisan rancor of the legitimate and often frustrating nomination process, more sinister forces were at work.

 

Mother Jones, unwittingly, sheds light onto the mindset of the administrative state in a piece detailing the resistance of EPA bureaucrats. An anonymous and unelected government employee wrote to Mother Jones laying out a lengthy argument justifying his or her resistance to reforms by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and objection to directives from the White House:

 

What type of nation are we when we allow our leaders to sign into law a rule that makes it EASIER for mining companies to pollute local waterways? These same politicians will try to convince their voters that making it easier to pollute local streams is somehow good for them [The anti-democratic notion that careerists at the EPA have a greater authority than the will of the people and their elected representatives is astounding and stands against concept of a representative republic]

 

Here in the US, those of us who work to protect the environment and human health from corporate pollution are lucky enough that we do not live under the specter of murder. We are, however, acutely aware that the forces behind these heinous crimes against environmental activists abroad are the same forces that are working against us in the US today. And make no mistake: These forces are poised to grow even stronger

 

..Will the capture of EPA by corporate interests be swept up in all the other horrifying news of the day or week? Or will the public finally decide that it is not acceptable to allow EPA, the only agency with a mission dedicated to protecting the environment, to be systematically dismantled, allowing those at the top to further concentrate wealth and power among themselves? Despite the long odds we face, we will never stop working to protect every person’s right to have a healthy place to live, work, and play. And if the new administrator casts me out of the job I love, I will not stop working toward the principles that have always animated my life. This is who I am, and that will never change. I stand in solidarity with brothers and sisters that work to protect human rights, human health, and the environment here in the US and all over the world. The struggle continues.

 

This is not the words of a dutiful civil servant but of a partisan tyrant who would see his own view, his own agenda, and his own lens of politics dominate over that of the elected government of the United States. In their minds they are but a guardian of the people, albeit one that must stand up to and ultimately negate the will of that very same people. Were the United States governed by a different political system, this view of the role of the unelected and their duty to act as sovereign over the people might even be admirable, but that is not a republican system.

 

Which Side Is Really Treasonous?

 

Complicit with the authoritarian nature of the administrative state is factions within the United States intelligence community both inside and outside the White House. They have engaged in a campaign of selective leaks and plots to undermine the president of the United States and weave a media narrative of Russian influence, conspiracy, and now obstruction of justice. With their media allies, they have leaked information and intelligence that — while lacking any actual criminal element — has allowed a narrative to arise that casts a dark shadow over the White House and those who live and work in it.

 

A narrative comprised of the Russian government “hacking” the presidential election, collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and Trump being compromised by the Russian government dominated the media before the final votes of the election were even tallied. Skepticism was suspended for what can only be described as a concerted effort to undermine the elected president of the United States.

 

Shortly after the inauguration, this narrative escalated via select leaks — and was admirably exacerbated by White House actions. We now face a crisis over a fired director of the FBI, with current and retired officials spinning stories to the media with little basis other than the whispers of anonymous sources.

 

We are told that President Trump demanded a loyalty oath from FBI Director James Comey, demanded Comey drop the FBI investigation into the foreign connections of Gen. Michael Flynn, and that this constitutes obstruction of justice and, in the most hysterical cases, that this among other offenses even constitutes treason.

 

Yet in all of this we have yet to see the purported Comey memo detailing some of these moments — although from the media treatment it is understandable that many would constitute the media reports as truth. The meeting between President Trump and the Russian foreign minister has resulted in a similar tale of collusion and gross breach of intelligence tradecraft, with Trump’s national security advisor and the secretary of State, both present for the meeting, have both denied.

 

The Media Slips Loose the Dogs of War

 

In all of this, the media has abandoned their role as watchdogs with a healthy dose of skepticism and become the propaganda arm of the unelected administrative state, complicit in and even cheering on the actions that have superseded the will of the people. A cursory glance at the social media feeds of most Washington DC-based press more than illustrates this.

 

Bolstered by their partisan allies, the media has acted as a beachhead for the assault on the Trump administration. Partisan organizations like Media Matters for America have helped to provide ammunition to the media and pour fuel on the fires of resistance among partisan activists. Eric Boehlert, a former journalist and now a writer at Media Matters, tweeted, following the revelation of a possible memo from Comey: “Trump obstructed justice THREE WEEKS INTO HIS FIRST TERM”

 

 

 

Boehlert provides no actual evidence of obstruction of justice. Rather, he runs with an intentional media narrative that the mere whisper, the idea, is in-and-of-itself proof that obstruction occurred. Thus Boehlert is affirmative in his tweet, not speculative. Because the administrative state, the progressive political partisans, and the media oppose the Trump administration, any whiff of maleficence is treated as the Gospel Truth.

 

Boehlert’s follow-up tweets provide insight into the mindset that has taken over our media and political institutions. “Comey’s firing signaled the end for Trump; he upset forces that were unseen to him. [sic] and now they’re exacting revenge..as they should”

 

 

 

This should be a disturbing revelation, even one coming from a mind so addled and partisan as Boehlert’s. Justice, properly pursued, is a good end, but what Boehlert is cheering on is the revenge of a man who was legally and constitutionally fired. This is the partisan nature of the administrative state revealed. Partisans of the political Left cheering on bureaucrats to help create a narrative and the appearance of malfeasance where there has yet to be any evidence of such.

 

Boehlert continues: “ftr, these leaks are unusual: Mon, WP got scoop then quickly lots of reporters filled in. today, NYT, then lots of reporters filled in.”

 

 

 

“ie.e. this is a quality roll-out. Q: will there be another tomorrow?”

 

 

 

“after today, how does he not apt special prosecutor??”

 

 

 

These series of tweets illustrate the broader problem of collusion between the various elements of the partisan Left, the media, and the administrative state. The attack on Trump from within and without is coordinated and purposefully geared to make a lack of evidence seem like a mountain of evidence and be as damning as possible, although what it truly amounts to is a paper tiger. With the administrative state leaking and the partisans giving context, the media gins up a plot that declares Trump guilty of crimes of which there is no concrete evidence he committed. This is how you build the consensus behind a coup d’etat.

 

A Smear Production Factory

 

One only need look at the case of Sebastian Gorka to see just how far and how petty the media has gone to act as the enforcer of the administrative state. Some in the intelligence community and partisan bureaucracy viewed Gorka unfavorably, resulting in an organized campaign in the press against him.

 

The magazine Forward began running poorly sourced articles tying Gorka to a Hungarian order of merit called the Vitézi Rend, which, during World War II, had factions that supported the Hungarian dictator Horthy, the Imperial House of Habsburg, and the Nazi party. Despite no clear evidence, Forward labeled Gorka, in essence, a Nazi. The media ran with that narrative, bolstered by activist campaigns by partisans of the Democratic Party and those opposed to Gorka in the intelligence community.

 

In truth, the real objection to Gorka was his view of Islam as a civilizational confrontation and of radical Islam as a hostile force against the West. There as yet remains no evidence of Gorka or his father being tied to the Nazi party in any way — yet that did not stop journalists from surmising on social media that Gorka’s immigration to the United States and status as a U.S. citizen should have been blocked and should be revoked.

 

The scale of the administrative state and its allies’ war against the duly elected government of the United States should be startling. The media should be an institution of skepticism and concern for this usurpation, yet they have chosen to be complicit. In this, Codevilla is correct. We have emerged into a new system of government, though perhaps not truly an imperial one.

 

Whereas some continue to try and enforce republican values and norms, a large swath of what administers the government of our nation has chosen to embody the Roman dictator Sulla — in the form of a multitude of bureaucrats and careerists; a dictatorial court without an emperor to bring them to heel.

 

We may already be past the point of no return. Some in the White House made it a point to seek dismantling the administrative state, but it appears the administrative state is more than capable of fighting back and seizing additional power through leaks, obstinacy, and partisan rancor — ensuring its survival and propelling what can only be described as a coup d’etat.

Intro to ‘Trump’s Truman moment

John R. Houk, Editor

Posted 5/19/17

 

Bob Eschliman writing for CharismaNews, introduces a Pastor John Hagee open letter posted at the Washington Times encouraging President Trump to deliver on his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This would be an act recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital City of the Jewish State. This is also an act that would alienate psycho-Islamic Supremacist nations and Multiculturalist-deluded European nations desiring to placate the oil rich Middle Eastern nations. 

 

CharismaNews posted on May 18 while the open letter posted at Washington Times was posted on May 15. I am going to quote Eschliman’s intro as a quote and the Washington Times post in entirety. Eschliman posted three paragraphs. Two paragraphs in the beginning, followed by a partial of John Hagee’s open letter and finishing with a paragraph telling you to read the rest of the open letter. Here is the intro:

 

Pastor John Hagee, in his capacity as founder and chairman of Christians United For Israel, has written an open letter to President Donald Trump that was published Wednesday by The Washington Times.

 

In the letter, Hagee reminds the president of one of his predecessors, President Harry Truman, who faced a decisive moment where he had to choose between standing up for Israel or going with the wishes of the rest of the world. He said President Trump will face a similar test during his trip to the Middle East.

 

 

But, Hagee noted, the buck doesn't stop with the bureaucrats—borrowing one of Truman's most famous catchphrases—but at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. Click here to read the rest of the letter.

Trump’s Truman moment

 

Attributed to Washington Times Staff

By Pastor John Hagee

Washington Times

 

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

 

In 1948, when President Truman recognized the newly independent state of Israel, he did so in the face of fierce opposition from his advisers. Secretary of State George C. Marshall — whom the president regarded as “the greatest living American” — adamantly opposed the decision.

 

Despite the controversy, it is now a source of a great pride for many Americans that our nation recognized Israel just minutes after it declared independence. Truman’s decision to choose morality over realpolitik, in defiance of his advisers, will forever be a focal point of American and Israeli history — and of Truman’s legacy.

 

President Trump will soon face a similar moment. In a few weeks, as mandated by the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, he will have to decide whether to exercise the legislation’s presidential waver or move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

 

Throughout his campaign, Mr. Trump promised to move the embassy. This promise was vital to securing the support of millions of Christian Zionists around the country, and Mr. Trump like Truman is hearing from naysayers. Moving the embassy will inflame the Arab world, they claim.

 

Also like Truman, Mr. Trump must contend with well-entrenched anti-Israel bureaucrats at the State Department who will try to use their positions to make moving the embassy difficult. But the buck does not stop with bureaucrats.

 

The Jewish state has the right to determine where it would place its capitol, and it has chosen Jerusalem. The international community’s decision to cower before Israel’s enemies by keeping embassies in Tel Aviv is disgraceful. For thousands of years, Jews around the world never forgot their holy city. From generation to generation they reiterated their hope that next year they would be in Jerusalem. In the days to come, I pray God grant Mr. Trump the wisdom of Solomon and the courage of Truman.

Intro to ‘Memo to the "progressive" Democratic Takers

By Justin O. Smith

John R. Houk, Editor

Posted 5/18/17

 

Many Leftists like to describe themselves as Progressives. I have never liked that description because in my “Progressive” denotes a positive step forward.

 

There is nothing positive about a Leftist especially relative American Liberty and Freedom. Everything about the political Left is about government control of individuals deceptively masked as a progressive betterment of human society.

 

The thing is moving Left always results in some form of elitist totalitarianism. History demonstrates that if one decides to examine it, massive deaths of human lives all in the name of the some mythological greater good for the betterment of humanity.

 

According to Stéphane Courtois’s The Black Book of Communism, Communism is responsible for 100 million deaths, a number total that far exceeds Nazism, which left 16 million dead—and it eclipses the 20th century death tolls of lung cancer, diabetes, and homicides. (Communism: The Leading Ideological Cause of Death in the 20th Century; By Jim Liao; The Epoch Times; 1/25/17 12:20 PM - Last Updated: 3/16/17 2:54 pm)

 

The number of genocidal deaths may differ among demographic experts but not by much. Also, I find it interesting that most people view Nazism as a Right Wing phenomenon. People forget that Nazi is an acronym when translated into English is “National Socialist German Workers' Party”. Note the word “Socialist”. Socialism is a Leftist term. Thus, you can add Hitler’s Nazi regime accredited 16 million deaths to the Communists as far as I am concerned.

 

Hitler, Mao, Stalin & Pol Pot

 

With all the efforts of the Dem Party to undermine President Trump with hypocritical fake conspiracies that when compared to the real conspiracies attributed Obama, Slick Willie and Crooked Hillary; Americans concerned about Constitutional heritage should become extremely upset! And at the very least NEVER vote for a Dem Party candidate for any reason! Justin Smith goes into greater detail about the counter-American Marxism the Dems are leading America toward.

Memo to the "progressive" Democratic Takers

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/17/2017 7:50 PM

 

To ALL Democrats and Socialists out there:

 

While You may not be a Marxist, You definitely support many of the anti-Christian, anti-family, anti-Constitution/Bill of Rights/property rights and anti-American ideas that have derived straight from the Ten Tenets of the Communist Manifesto [SEE Analysis], however inadvertently or knowingly that may or may not be.

 

When You ask for Us to "come together and make a change that works for all of us", I am reminded of the numerous times that Progressive Democrats pushed for "compromise", so long as that compromise was heavily lop-sided in their favor and pushing the country farther and farther towards full blown communism, just as Bernie Sanders Socialists now do.

 

Compromise is fine, where room exists for that compromise, but one can never compromise with Evil and proposals that VIOLATE core Truths and moral human decency and principles that support and defend liberty.

 

The party of Marx --- the Democratic Party --- has pushed their agenda too far, and You are still pushing even though You lost the election, as You riot in Our streets and attempt to burn down Our cities, clamoring for privileges to be made into "rights".

 

Americans who love God, their family and America are working to move this country back closer to a government that is limited in scope and aligned with Constitutional principles, in response to the abrogation of much of the Constitution under Obama and through activist judges who departed from any rational premise based upon "the law".

 

And before We see this nation chipped away at, further destroyed, by people who demand wants and desires as "their right", many of Us are prepared to fight, to pick up arms if necessary, because once the government can determine that privileges are now "rights", you can expect to see a tyranny unleashed in the nation never seen before, with citizens forced to bow at the altar of the State for survival and the country reduced to the lowest common denominator in poverty, a "utopian" Third World hellhole.

 

So I don't really think We have so much in common at this point. Before I die on my knees begging for sustenance from the government, I'd rather fight for my God-given Rights as a Free Born Man to live my life as I see fit without government intrusions in areas that do not concern our so-called "leaders". And before I see America lurch further into the Dark Red fields of Communism, single-payer systems-Medicare for all, total government control of natural resources including water, over-regulating businesses out of existence, I would rather fight to Live Free, but because like my Ol' Daddy told me, after fighting fascists and communists in three different wars, "Better Dead Than Red".

 

And I plan on Living Free or Dying in the Battle, in order that Freedom and Liberty are preserved for America's Children and Their Children and generations beyond.

 

Some of You might live fairly decent lives in a humanist sort of style, but rather than reach out to Us, the Conservative Americans, You and Your people need to look inward and see that perhaps the nation has already been soaked of all it's willing to part with. We're $20 trillion in debt and rapidly approaching economic collapse, due largely to socialist programs that have caused a convergence of capitalism and communism, that will certainly fail. It's past time for All Americans to look to themselves and their own personal responsibility to their families and, wherever it may apply, to each other.

 

May God Bless America for All Eternity.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer by the name of Seth Rich was shot to death around 4:00 AM on the streets of Washington D.C. The initial reports say Mr. Rich was murdered in a robbery.

 

Whoops. Nothing of value or at all was taken from the murdered Mr. Rich.

 

Then enters Julian Assange of Wikileaks. Assange publicizes that Rich was a major source of DNC emails and says an investigation should proceed to find the actual motive behind the murder.

 

The Left Stream Media blows off Assange’s assertion revenge murder for exposing the DNC and sticks with Trump colluded with Russia to hack the DNC emails to win the election.

 

The murder victim’s family is not buying the police dictum of a random murder and wants better answers for Mr. Rich’s homicide.

 

Thus, a private investigator is hired by the family but financed by a third party to look into the Rich murder.

 

The private investigator is a former police detective by the name of Rod Wheeler. Wheeler’s investigation is stonewalled by the D.C. Police and the FBI but still finds a source that wants anonymity to stay out of trouble. The anonymous tipster says he has seen Seth Rich’s laptop that has a history of sending thousands of emails to Wikileaks. Rod Wheeler goes public because D.C. Police and the FBI stonewalling and suspicious denials reeks of cover-up.

 

Whoops. The Rich family are evidently stalwart Dems and are upset that Wheeler let the cat out of the bag that Seth Rich sent DNC emails to Wikileaks.

 

The Rich family commit an odd oxymoron by rebuking Rod Wheeler’s public revelations by

 

1) Denying that Seth Rich – a Dem staffer from a Dem family – would send incriminating emails to Wikileaks

 

 2) Claim Rod Wheeler violated his contract by making his findings public.   

 

Hmm It appears strange to defend Seth Rich’s memory at the potential cost of tying his murder to some form of DNC revenge and simultaneously yell at Rod Wheeler using the weight of public opinion to expose a D.C. Police/FBI cover-up.

 

The anger of Seth Rich’s family suggests that they would rather stick to the initial police story of a random killing then believe their son or nephew or whatever was murdered out of revenge or to silence him from further divulgement of info exposing the dark side of the Democratic Party.

 

What should an American’s grey matter to wonder is: Why would the FBI be involved in a random street murder rather than the local cops?

 

Hmm I wonder.

VIDEO: Investigator Says Evidence Showing Deceased DNC Staffer Seth Rich Was Emailing With WikiLeaks

 

 

Posted by Daily S**t Show - Current & Political U.S. News

Published on May 15, 2017

 

Monday during the 10 p.m. ET news broadcast of Fox’s Washington, D.C. affiliate WTTG, correspondent Marina Marraco revealed an investigation by former D.C. homicide detective Rod Wheeler found now-deceased Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich had been emailing with WikiLeaks.

Rich was killed last year in the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. According to local police, the incident was likely a botched robbery. However, Rich’s death has been the subject of other speculations given the timing of his death coincided with a WikiLeaks dump of Democratic National Committee emails.

Wheeler explained to Marraco the obstacles he has faced in dealing with both the local police and the FBI during his investigation and argued Rich’s computer may offer some more details.

“The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” Wheeler said. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

Wheeler went on to confirm he had a source within the police department that said that computer could link Rich to WikiLeaks. But he noted that a source within the police department told him of a “highly unusual” instruction for police to stand down on that murder investigation.

“Actually, I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case, and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that’s highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that’s going to come out tomorrow.”

Marraco went on to add that Wheeler’s reference to the information coming out tomorrow would be broadcasted on the Fox News Channel.

 

The Fox News link above has Rod Wheeler explaining his issues with a potential cover-up.

Fox News: Murdered DNC Staffer Sent 44,053 Internal Emails to WikiLeaks

 

By DEBRA HEINE

MAY 16, 2017

PJ Media

 

Fox News is now reporting, based on multiple investigative sources, that Seth Rich -- the Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down in Northwest D.C. near his home last July -- leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks in the months beforehand.

 

According to Fox News' Malia Zimmerman, these new revelations are consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective and Fox News contributor. Wheeler told Fox 5 DC that there is evidence on Rich's laptop that confirms he was emailing WikiLeaks prior to his death. Wheeler's law enforcement sources also allegedly claimed they were told to "stand down" on investigating the crime.

Rich's family, however, has denounced Wheeler's claims in a statement, calling them "unsubstantiated."

 

Via Fox News:

 

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report -- generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich's murder -- detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

 

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

 

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.

 

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”

 

The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.

 

Investigator: Murdered DNC Staffer Was Communicating with WikiLeaks Prior to Death

 

Rich left Lou’s City Bar, a couple miles from his home, at about 1:15 a.m. on July 10. His immediate activities after leaving the bar remain a mystery:

 

He walked home, calling several people along the way. He called his father, Joel Rich, who he missed because he had gone to sleep. He talked with a fraternity brother and his girlfriend, Kelsey Mulka.

 

Around 4:17 a.m., Rich was about a block from his home when Mulka, still on the phone with him, heard voices in the background. Rich reassured her that he was steps away from being at his front door and hung up.

 

Two minutes later, Rich was shot twice. Police were on the scene within three minutes. Rich sustained bruising on his hands and face. He remained conscious, but died at a nearby hospital less than two hours later.

 

Police detectives will not say whether Rich provided them with any clues about the identity of his attackers or their motivation, Wheeler said. However, Wheeler believes Rich could have provided information prior to his death of who was responsible for carrying out his murder.

 

Grainy video tape from a security camera outside a grocery mart shows two assailants shooting Rich twice in his back. They did not take "his wallet, cell phone, keys, watch or necklace worth about $2,000."

 

On July 22, just twelve days after Rich was murdered, WikiLeaks published emails that prompted the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz from her role as DNC chairperson on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has insisted all along that the DNC emails were not hacked by the Russians, and he has implied that Rich was indeed the source of the emails. On August 9, WikiLeaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murdered DNC staffer.

 

Assange told a Dutch reporter last August:

 

[O]ur sources take risks, and they, they become concerned to see things occurring like that, whistle-blowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.

 

Fox News reports that law enforcement sources "close to the investigation" say the police have "no suspects and no substantial leads as to who the killer or killers may be":

 

Metropolitan Police, including the police chief, have refused to discuss the case, despite requests from Fox News dating back 10 months.

 

The department released a statement on the case saying it remains an active investigation and that detectives are working with Rich's family.

 

"If there are any individuals who feel they have information, we urge them to call us at (202) 727-9099 or text us at 50411," read the statement. "The department is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information on this case that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible."

 

The FBI’s national office declined to comment, but sources said the bureau provided cyber expertise to examine Rich’s computer.

 

Wheeler believes powerful forces are preventing the case from a thorough investigation.

 

“My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,” Wheeler told Fox News. “That is unfortunate. Seth Rich’s murder is unsolved as a result of that.”

 

Rich's family released a statement blasting Rod Wheeler. The statement says he was not authorized to speak to the press about the investigation, and characterizes his findings as "unsubstantiated claims":

 

"As we’ve seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press," the spokesperson said. "Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so.

 

"We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the voice and strict law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers," the statement continued. "The services of the private investigator who spoke to press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family.”

 

VIDEO: Report: Slain DNC staffer was in contact with WikiLeaks

 

 

Posted by Fox News

Published on May 16, 2017

 

Update: 10:00 P.M. PST

 

Rod Wheeler told CNN on Tuesday afternoon that the source for his claim that there was "tangible evidence" on Rich's laptop that proves that he was in communications with WikiLeaks was the reporter who worked on the story for FoxNews.com (presumably Malia Zimmerman, who based her story on multiple investigative sources).

 

He explained that the comments he made to WTTG-TV were intended to simply preview Fox News' Tuesday story. The WTTG-TV news director did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

 

"I only got that [information] from the reporter at Fox News," Wheeler told CNN. Asked about a quote attributed to him in the Fox News story in which he said his "investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and Wikileaks," Wheeler said he was referring to information that had already been reported in the media.

 

In an appearance on Fox News' "Hannity" on Tuesday night, however, Wheeler had a different story.

 

He said a "federal investigator that was involved on the inside of the case" saw Rich's computer and the case file. Wheeler told host Sean Hannity the investigator "came across [as] very credible.

 

When you look at that, with the totality of everything else that I found in this case, it’s very consistent for a person with my experience to begin to think, 'Well, perhaps there were some email communication between Seth and Wikileaks.'"

 

Brad Bauman, a spokesman for the Rich family, said the family was "reviewing possible legal action against Wheeler for speaking about the case publicly."

 

A contract between Wheeler and the Rich family prohibited from speaking to the media about his ongoing investigation, Bauman said.

That’s what the whining Left sounds to me every time they talk as if President Trump and Russia colluded together to win the election: “Russia, Russia, Russia”. (Yeah, its not an original thought – I heard the analogy first on Fox News)

 

The America is so unreasonably dialed into the UNPROVEN analogy, they fail to deliver the news about easier to access proof about Obama Administration spying on Conservatives. If it wasn’t for Trump-haters rolling over from the Obama Administration, Obama’s treasonous activities undoubtedly draw a picture that would make Benedict Arnold blush.

 

Here is a suspicion from a Conservative U.S. Senator that has zero traction on the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM): Senator Rand Paul believes Obama used American Intelligence to spy not only on him during his Presidential campaign but also on other Senators and SCOTUS Justices.

Senator Rand Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano drop Bombshells: Obama Administration was Spying on Other Senators Too

The illegal government spying story continues to grow and metastasize and could soon take on a life of its own.

 

In fact, Senator Paul has discovered at least one other Senator who was most certainly surveilled by the Obama administration.

 

This past week, Senator Rand Paul revealed that he had asked the White House, and the House and Senate Intelligence committees to look into the possibility that he and other presidential candidates and politicians had been unlawfully surveilled by the Obama administration.

“I know one other senator who’s already confided to me that he was surveilled by the Obama administration, including his phone calls,” Senator Paul told Fox News on Friday. “So when this all comes out, if there are political figures from the opposition party, it’s a story bigger than any of the allegations with regard to Russian collusion It’s about your own government spying on the opposition party, that would be enormous if true. I don’t know the truth. We’ve asked the intel committees, House and Senate, and I’ve also asked the White House, because there is this whole discussion of Susan Rice unmasking people,” Paul said.

On Monday, Judge Andrew Napolitano explained on the Fox Business Network that Senator Paul is likely right and that many others were likely surveilled as well. Specifically, Judge Napolitano mentioned that former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia believed that he and the other Justices were under constant surveillance.

 

Justice Scalia told me that he often thought the court was being surveilled. And he told me that probably four or five years ago If they had to unmask Senator Paul’s name to reveal a conversation he was having with a foreign agent and the foreign agent was hostile to the United States they can do that. That’s not what he’s talking about. They’re talking about unmasking him when he’s having a conversation with his campaign manager when he’s running in the Republican primary.

"F*** you, you racist piece of s***!" "I think you're despicable."

These are just a couple of the nasty comments I received from moviegoers right after they finished watching the new ACORN documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival.

You may remember that when the movie premiered, the far-left producers, Sam Pollard and Reuben Atlas banned me from attending the screening.

They did this despite the fact that I purchased my own ticket.

A few weeks ago I told you about Rule 13 from Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals (the progressives' bible of strategic activism).

Rule 13 commands, "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it . . . Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions."

Well this short, two-minute video shows how progressives like Pollard and Atlas are able to use this Rule effectively to turn people against me.

I hope you'll take a couple minutes to watch it:

This type of strategy is nothing new for me. My team and I at Project Veritas are used to it, so it won't slow us down one bit.

But I wanted to give you a quick glimpse of the type of hatred this practice fuels.

Thank you for your support of Project Veritas.

In Truth,

About Project Veritas

 

Founded by James O’Keefe, the mission of Project Veritas is to:

 

Investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.

 

Project Veritas is the most effective non-profit on the national scene, period.

 

We’ve had dozens of successes, many of which are detailed on this site. The pattern is clear:

 

Project Veritas launches an investigation with the placement of our undercover journalists. The rollout of our findings creates a growing and uncontainable firestorm of press coverage. Corruption is exposed, leaders resign, and organizations are shut down.

 

We get immediate, measurable and impactful results, and our return on investment is unparalleled.

 

Project Veritas is a registered 501(c)3 organization. Project Veritas does not advocate specific resolutions to the issues that are raised through its investigations, nor do we encourage others to do so. Our goal is to inform the public of wrongdoing and allow the public to make judgments on the issues.

Shamim Masih (Mahmood) is a Christian Human Rights activist and journalist from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. In case you are unaware, Pakistan has some of the most stringent Islamic Blasphemy Laws enforced globally among Muslims. Blasphemy Laws are often used as a financial by greedy or vengeful Muslims that trump-up false charges for one kind of gain or another.

 

That is the environment that Christian-Pakistani Shamim has dealt with his whole life. You can imagine Shamim’s life and livelihood might be held by a thin thread that American Christians would consider incredulous in understanding.

 

I am asking you to be an advocate for Shamim Masih on a financial basis whether it is a one-time gift or an ongoing monetary support. Support for Shamim just could be a glimpse of hope for impoverished Christian-Pakistanis who live constantly under the thumb of Islamic Supremacism.

I like to use Western Union sending money with this LINK to the destination of Islamabad (Contact Shamim in case he has changed cities).

Give Voice to the Voiceless

Respected Sir,

 

Based on my personal experience while covering the incidents of religious discrimination and persecution of Pakistan’s minorities’ communities in the recent years. I have observed that main stream media in Pakistan do not cover the persecution and religious discrimination. So I have planned to become the voice of the voiceless people of Pakistan. Thus starting “thecovenant.tv” with the aim not only to cover the routine events, but especially to become the voice of the voiceless people in Pakistan. Some work has been done on it and much to do. I am writing this letter to you seeking the support in this regard in any sense you can either financially or morally. Please Google me as "Shamim Masih" Below is the concept note please go through it and give your input.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Shamim

Give Voice to the Voiceless

 

During the recent decade, it is observed that the national main stream media does play down incidents of religious discrimination and persecution of Pakistan’s minorities communities. This is partially due to government’s ‘requests (read orders)’ to newspapers editors and TV channel heads not to highlight or give extensive coverage to such issue as “they bring a bad to the country.” The other factors of lack of coverage of minorities’ communities is the fact that main stream channels are not very keen on giving a voice to the voiceless. There are only a handful of journalists belonging to minorities’ communities working in the mainstream media but they too are unable to project the plight of their people effectively as they have little or no say at all in editorial matters.

 

There is a dire need to produce more journalists from such communities’ train them professionally and provide them with a platform in the national media from where they can bring forth the issues facing their people as well reports persecution and discrimination meted out by the majority.
