Politifact fact-checked one of Pres. Trump's tweets Sunday and declared the "the numbers check out." The fact-checking site then rated the tweet "mostly false."
Trump had tweeted that the National Debt in his first month went down $12 billion vs a $200 billion up-tick in Barack Obama's first month, with PolitiFact reporting, "The numbers check out." But in the typical spin-style of Progressive NewsSpeak organizations, they wrote exactly the opposite of the truth based on a political opinion, declaring the tweet "mostly false."
So, in the world of fact checking, PolitiFact being one of the more noted vetting mechanisms, the truth doesn't matter as much as an opinion on the truth.
Interestingly, PolitiFact used to back-up Pres. Obama's claims that the economy was rockin', that unemployment was down - even though the Labor Participation Rate was dismal and the jobs created were mediocre-paying part-time jobs at best, and that al Qaeda had been decimated.
So, with just this brief juxtaposition, we can see that PolitiFact bases it's ratings on the ideological theories and opinions held by their vetters.
PolitiFact: Worthless as teats on a bull.
Leaked audio from an anti-Trump protest group prep meeting reveals activists with the Progressive group Indivisible plotting how best to manufacture a hostile environment at a town hall with Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in Louisiana Friday. The audio reveals a coordinated effort to create the public impression that Cassidy’s support for Trump is unpopular with his constituents.
The activists, who describe themselves as liberals in the audio, split up into an “inside team” (tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can”) and an “outside team” (whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want”). Activists were even instructed to dress like conservatives and leave at home “any signifier that you’re a liberal” in order to blend in with constituents.
This isn't an act of free speech as Progressive operatives and talking heads keep contending on the prime time usual suspect shows. It is a usurpation of democracy; a deliberate obstruction of a legitimate political process. In fact, when you consider that the actions of these "activists" disenfranchise legitimate constituents from engaging in the political process, it could be argued that they are violating the real constituents' constitutional rights to redress government.
These are the Alinsky tactics of the Progressive movement. They are antithetical to freedom and liberty; to the democratic process and representative constitutional government. Until We the People can expunge this subversive ideology from our national lexicon, we will suffer the chaos they wreck.
An investigation into newly elected DNC Chairman, Tom Perez, reveals he holds radically racist and extreme views according to A Review of the Operations of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division conducted by the Office of the Inspector General Oversight and Review Division in March of 2013. Perez told investigators that white people were not entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.
The DoJ document cited evidences: "CRT AAG Perez stated that interpreting Section 5’s retrogressive-effects standard to not cover White citizens was consistent with the Division’s longstanding practice, as well as case law interpreting the provision and the intent behind its enactment..."
Wow, if the sanitized version of what I would like to say about this racist piece of trash. The only question now is this. When will the tolerant people of the Left remove him as chairman of the Democrat National Committee? They fanatically state that Donald Trump is not fit to hold office - some, like Rep. Maxine Waters (P-CA), saying he should be impeached - so how can they allow someone who is racist against the majority demographic in our country to lead their political party?
Racism is racism and the definition of racism, per Merriam-Webster: "a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination...hatred or intolerance of another race or other races."
How is saying one group - group defined by the color of someone's skin - be protected under the law while another is not? That is the very definition of discrimination and unequal justice under the law, ergo, Perez is an admitted and unabashed racist.
So, can we safely conclude that the Democrats, by virtue of their election of this racist, are the party of racists?
A new preschool is opening in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle. It's goal: to indoctrinate children younger than seven in social justice and inter-sectional theory. The school, dubbed the “anti-racism preschool, was the "brainchild" of Benjamin Gore and Jason Frelot, who are opening the preschool at the back of the Columbia City Church of Hope, where they will educate young children on the “experiences of people of color.” It is set to open its doors in the fall.
This is madness. It is one thing to teach children that we shouldn't judge people because of their skin color. It is completely another to install "shame" on children for a perceived never-ending injustice per the Social Justice mantra.
I was brought up in the 1960s and 1970s and can attest to the fact that we were actually taught not to judge people by the color of their skin. Rather, we were taught to weigh the content of their character. Installing a faux and unwarranted "shame" on new generations simply propagates the issue and obstructs society from moving on from racial disparities of the past.
It is well past time that we, as a society, start excoriating the race-baiters among us. It is time to teach our children that those who make a living or seek to attract notoriety on the back of the issue of racism are the ones actually keeping racism alive, and for their own selfish gain.
We cannot move on to a better society if we allow this race merchants to force racism onto future generations.
White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, recently scoured his aides' cell phones to make sure they weren't leaking information to reporters. Spicer called staff into his office last week to reiterate his frustration with recent leaks, and informed them that the use of encrypted texting apps was a violation of the Federal Records Act.
Spicer went to far as to ask his staff to show him their cell phones so he could ensure they weren't corresponding privately with reporters.
Frankly, this is well within his purview. Leaks may have become acceptable in administrations past, with many Americans believing it is just part of the political world, but the leaking of classified information - and privileged conversation - is most often not only illegal, but damaging to the country.
Since the mainstreaming of the issue of government leaking as portrayed in All the President's Men, the act of betraying a trust has been romanticized and, therefore, accepted. But the betrayal of trust is just that: a betrayal of trust. It is an offense that should cost the leaker his/her job. And let's remember that employees of any presidential administration serve at the pleasure of the President.
Imagine if information would have been so freely leaked during World War II. Roosevelt would have had the leakers brought up on treason charges and executed. Today, the media runs interference for them.
As Pres. Trump continues his "war" with the mainstream media, the many talking heads of the alphabet networks are digging in their heals; forcefully protesting each and every assertion made by the President. And while the Fourth Estate is protected by Free Speech rights so that they can provide a type of oversight to government, it is their conduct that has brought them to this point.
Yes, the political press has been contentious since before the founding of our nation. In Washington, Adams and Jefferson's day, the newspapers were vicious. But they balanced that viciousness.
With the genesis of the Progressive movement in the United States, Progressives set their sights on controlling, first and foremost, the education and information systems of our nation. They succeeded in capturing both.
Today, radical Liberals and Progressives dominate our universities and colleges, indoctrinating students into "what to think" instead of "how to think." Nowhere is this more so than in the schools of journalism. Students are taught to infuse emotion (read: opinion) into their reporting. As they are flooded with Progressive ideology in higher education, the system churns out Progressive propagandists instead of journalists.
So, when Pres. Trump lays into the mainstream media for failing to check their facts, advancing untruths, anchoring an overwhelming number of stories in "unnamed sources," and pretty much acting as the media arm of the Leftist movement, we should all find it astonishing that they protest as hard as they do, all with self-righteous indignation.
The smart news organization head realizes that although their is a sacred trust to be the "truth to power" in politics, the genre, nevertheless, is a ratings game. Sensationalized journalism is getting incredibly stale, as are the formulated talking head shows. The people are tired of the "i think" talking point merchants trotted out each night to exacerbate topics most of us find inane. It is time for someone to get back to the "who, what, when, where, why and how, of it all and dispense with the opinion and emotion.
That news organization - should it appear - will slay all others in the ratings. That's how tired we are of the bullsh*t.
In a move that drips with hypocrisy, the Democrat National Committee tabled a resolution Saturday calling on the party to reinstate a ban on corporate donations and on federal corporate lobbyists from serving as at-large members of the DNC. This stands in direct opposition to the over-the-top rhetoric spewed during the 2016 General Election about Democrats opposition to the Citizens United SCOTUS ruling.
Ironically, Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - who benefits handsomely from big corporate donations, put forward the proposal to revive a ban that former Pres. Obama put into place in 2008.
So, throughout the years-long, mind-numbing presidential campaign of 2016 we heard - ad nauseum - from Democrats decrying the evils of corporate big money donations in politics. They painted these donations as the centerpiece of the RNC funding apparatus.
Now, the first chance they get to walk the walk, in establishing the DNC platform going forward from the 2016 General Election, they not only ignore what they preached to everyone else about the evils of corporate influence in politics, they green-light it for themselves.
To wit, anyone still believing anything these political reprobates have to say is either terminally stupid or just as disingenuous as their elected counterparts.
Former Pres. Obama and other top Democrats are focusing efforts on state-level races and ending the reconfiguring of voting districts through the politically-laden process known as redistricting.
Obama indicated before leaving the White House that his short-term, post-presidency focus will be on General Assembly races and redistricting after the 2020 Census. The "super group," otherwise known as the National Democrat Redistricting Committee is pushing for "non-partisan redistricting commissions," that would lord over the always changing congressional districts per the most recent census results.
Of course, there are two things that are huge encroachments onto the process that Democrats - and Obama - simply ignore.
First, the realignment of congressional districts is not - or at least it is not supposed to be - the purview of the Federal Government. It is the State legislatures that have power over any redistricting that must take place. A nationally mandated "non-partisan commission" would be chartered in an effort that violated the 10th Amendment.
Second is the question on who would have the authority to seat the members of these so-called "non-partisan" commissions. Because elections have consequences, the people naming the members of the commission would undoubtedly have partisan attitudes; example the FCC and NLRB for starters.
And you thought Obama was going to go quietly into the abyss of obscurity...
We live in a nation made up of 50 sovereign States with 50 different constitutions. The Federal Government has been trying to diminish that fact for over 200 years and it is time for that to stop.
The tolerant State of California is happily imposing travel restrictions on its own citizens citing political correctness. A new California State statute prohibits state agencies (including state universities) from funding travel to a number of states - including Tennessee and looking to include Kansas, Mississippi, and North Carolina - that have laws that "discriminate" against the LGBTQ community.
How far the State of California has devolved from their tolerant roots. It used to be that people moved to California for the freedom it afforded as one of the last bastions of "hands-off" government. Today, California has some of the most outrageous taxes and societal mandates in the United States.
This travel ban, while not as draconian, stinks of the "where are your papers" days of the Third Reich. But how far are they really from that point? Certainly, this denies some students the same taxpayer-funded privileges of other students who do not travel to the targeted states for educational purposes. Isn't this a true form of discrimination?
The ideologues who control California's government have made it the laughingstock of the 50 States. In fact, many who live outside the PC State of California are quietly cheering their efforts at a CalExit. If they succeed, then we will witness how "ideological" they remain in the face of not US federal dollars to support their ridiculous initiatives.
Chris Cuomo: Dads Who Don't Want their Daughters to See Exposed Male Genitals 'Overprotective' & 'Intolerant'
CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the son of Late New York Governor Mario Cuomo and brother to current New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, was asked in a tweet what you tell a 12-year old girl who doesn’t want to see a penis in the locker room. He responded by stating that any dad who would seek to protect his daughter from seeing a male penis, etc. or otherwise objected, was being "overprotective" and "intolerant."
This is insane. It is also afoul of indecent exposure laws that are on the books in every one of the 50 States.
What kind of degenerate believes that it is not objectionable for a grown man to show his genitalia to a 12-year old, prepubescent girl? For that matter, isn't the very definition of "degenerate" someone who would do such a thing?
This is the warped moral relativism of the Progressive Left. There are no boundaries and anyone who doesn't agree with them are instantly labeled "intolerant," and, in this case, "over-protective." Imagine that, a father labeled "intolerant" for not letting some cretin expose himself to his daughter.
Imagine, if you will, the shrieking outrage that would have taken place if someone on the Right would have suggested such a thing. Charges of misogyny and sexism would have come down on his head like Niagara Falls.
Cuomo should lose his job, if for nothing else, being stupid enough to say such a thing. It lends to the idea that he is not smart and, therefore, a liability to CNN. Really, he should lose his job because remarking as he did proved him to be a scumbag.
Nancy Salem, a pre-school teacher at the the Children's Courtyard in South Arlington, Texas, has been suspended from her post after an investigation was launched into her anti-Semitic remarks on social media. One of her social media posts read, "Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews!"
Another in a litany of anti-Semitic remarks read: "How many Jews died in the Holocaust?" with "Not enough...HAHAHAHA." And yet another read, "How was the copper wire invented. They threw a penny between the two Jews. LOLACHAUST,"
How, in the name of God, did this woman get certified to teach children in the United States of America? Would you want this hateful protagonist of violence anywhere near your child?
If our education colleges are not vetting students so people like this cannot reach the classroom, what the hell are they doing?
I have contended for over a decade now, and getting on two, that the education system - including the colleges of education and the federal and state governmental overseeing departments - are broken.
We need a revolution in education that addresses practical applications instead of a system exclusively based on data-driven theory. We need to re-examine the "grade" system and explore modular curriculum so children can work at their own ability and pace without dragging other children to the lowest denominator. And we need to give the classrooms back to teachers who have the best interests of the children at heart; those who understand the importance of teaching critical thinking skills, instead of indoctrinating our children into radical ideologies.
As for Salem, Texas should revoke her teaching certificates immediately.
Records from former US Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s divorce case show how he collects a huge benefit check from the federal government after serving time in prison for looting hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign fund. Jackson, 51, receives about $138,400 a year — more than he made as a congressman, most of that is workers' compensation and tax-free. The rest of Jackson's benefits are Social Security Disability Insurance payments.
Jackson feeds from the government entitlement trough because he has "bipolar disorder" and "depression," the "issues" that led to an extended leave from Congress in 2012.
Of course, the thinking person suspects that these diagnosis were maladies of convenience for the purpose of lightening his sentence of federal wire and mail fraud. He only spent 30 months in prison.
Nevertheless, over $100K a year in "workman's comp" for his time as a coddled and grafting congressman? How are We the People paying him anything in compensation when he was convicted of crime that he committed during the execution of his official duties?
There are those who decry wasteful spending in government who exist on the Left side of the aisle. It would be interesting to see how they defend this gaming of the system...a system We the People's tax dollars fund.
On Sunday a #NeverTrump website called the Reagan Battalion released shocking audio of Breitbart's Milo Yiannopolous allegedly promoting sex with 13 year-olds. The audio, evidently presented out of context, was a clip from a 3 hour long podcast interview Yiannopolous gave in early 2016.
But The Reagan Battalion fronted itself from a now non-existent website, StopDonaldTrumpPAC.com. The website was the face of a group that sought the failure of the Trump campaign and, although calling themselves Conservative, sought a Hillary Clinton Victory.
So, it shouldn't be any surprise that the Stop Donald Trump PAC and The Reagan Battalion have tentacles that reach back to a George Soros funded group calling itself "Indivisible", which is mobilizing a grassroots effort to disrupt Republican town hall meetings across the country and inundate elected Republican's offices with protest talking point nuisance contact.
Regardless of whether you appreciate Yiannopolous or not; whether you like him, abhor him, whatever, he has done quite a bit to bring young people into the Republican Party, certainly on par with anyone who sits on the organizing board of CPAC, who just dis-invited him as a speaker.
I don't agree with Yiannopolous' take on a lot of things, but his stance of fascism on college campuses and fascism emanating from the Left is spot on. He should at least be able to explain himself, and not from the witch's pyre in the heat of the flames.
Much to the contrary of what the mainstream media Leftists contend, there is an immigrant issue with Middle Easterners in Sweden. Riots erupted in a heavily immigrant Stockholm suburb Monday night, with masked looters setting cars ablaze and throwing rocks at police, injuring one police officer.
The violence began around 8pm when officers arrested a suspect at an underground station on drug charges. A group of Middle Easterners soon gathered, hurling rocks and other objects at officers and prompting one cop to fire his gun, something rare in Sweden.
So, even though there is a plethora of evidence that proves Middle Eastern immigrants to Europe and Scandinavia are creating chaos in those cultures; are bringing indigence and violence to those cultures, the social justice Progressive warriors of the Euro-trash and American Leftist elite continue to jam their heads into the sand on the obvious.
When European and Scandinavian countries have to grapple with the reality of "no-go zones" because it isn't safe for even the police to enter them - all at the threat of violent Islamofascism - then it is time for the politically correct to grow-up and face the facts...before it is thoroughly too late.
The San Francisco Police Department has ended its cooperation with FBI counter-terrorism efforts, disengaging from the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force as part of the city’s larger rejection of Pres. Trump’s executive order on immigration. The SFPD rationalizes this cut saying the cooperative would couple SFPD officers with federal agents in carrying out the requirements of the immigration order.
This is stupidity on steroids. The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force is one of the premier domestic counter-terrorism organizations on American soil. Its sole purpose is to combat terrorism - acts of terrorism and terror groups - on our shores. By shunning the JTTF, San Francisco now takes on the role of sanctuary city for terrorists and their organizations.
So, because of the Progressive mindset in San Francisco, the United States is on the verge of having a safe-haven for terrorists; a place where local law enforcement engages in acts that shield terrorists and terror organizations from the very federal law enforcement organizations tasked with keeping the country - and her citizens - safe from future September 11ths.
This could be the over-zealous move that backfires on San Francisco. Combating this lunacy could provide the avenue for federal intervention in sanctuary cities that even the most intellectually challenged Leftist can understand...we'll see.
The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Florida doctorscan talk to patients about gun safety, declaring a law aimed at restricting such discussions a violation of the First Amendment's right to free speech. The court found that the law does not trespass on patients' Second Amendment rights to own guns and noted a patient who doesn't want to be questioned about that can easily find another doctor.
Of course, the patient - who is actually employing the doctor - has the absolute right not to answer the question as well. There is no requirement that a patient-doctor relationship be one-sided; a doctor does not have absolute power over the patient.
This is the danger of allowing government - and through government, ideology - to interfere with the doctor patient relationship. Quite frankly, it seems to be a transgression of the Fourth Amendment, especially in light of the way the SCOTUS ruled in Roe v. Wade. This transgression, you may recall, ws mandated when Obamacare became law...just one more reason to obliterate that law from the books.
Personally, I would like to get back to the days when even insurance companies were isolated from the doctor-patient relationship. I would much rather pay my doctor directly when I needed to see him and have "hospitalization" insurance than pay each month for physician access I don't use.
Ah, the old days...
Sen. John McCain (P-AZ), said that suppressing freedom of the press is "how dictators get started" in response to a tweet from President Trump that called the media "the enemy of the American people." McCain, on NBC's Meet the Press, said that having a free press is "a fundamental part of the new world order" when responding to a question about Pres. Trump's tweet that specifically calls out the New York Times, NBC and CNN as "fake news media."
McCain said, "If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and sometimes adversarial press. Without it, I'm afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That's how dictators get started."
While McCain is correct about dictators stifling and controlling information sources, his application of that idea to Pres. Trump is laughable. Labeling the media - or, more specifically, the elitist media outlets - as enemies of the American people isn't that far of a stretch.
The elite media is, without doubt, politicized and that makes them less the arbiters of truth and more the minions of ideology. This state removes their designation as entities of truth to power and makes them activists.
Perhaps the most potent validation of this comes in their screeching defense of themselves. Instead of being introspective of why the people have come to despise them more than lawyers and politicians - instead of looking inward to correct their wicked ways - they are defending the very behavior that moved people to distrust them in the first place, claiming that We the People are the ones not in sync with reality.
Trump is not lambasting all media, he is lambasting the Progressive controlled elite media, so no, he is not attempting to control information like a despot. Trump is taking it to the media...and just maybe, the media deserves it.
As for McCain...it is time for him - and his buddy Lindsay Graham - to go.
Progressive activists who tried unsuccessfully to sink Hillary Clinton's nomination at last year's convention are pestering national party members ahead of next week's vote on a new chairman. While eager to tap into the energy of lemming progressives who buoyed Sen. Bernard Sanders' presidential campaign, DNC leadership is less enthusiastic about the activists' sharp elbows. They say the phone calls to lobby for Rep. Keith Ellison, the choice of progressives, over Tom Perez, viewed as the establishment choice, are out of control.
Interestingly, both Ellison and Perez are toady Progressives, so the "annoyance" is a quandary...or, perhaps, a deflection.
The election of the next DNC chairman will be significant. The nation is exhausted with Progressive man-handling; a bullying that spent eight years on hyper-overdrive during the Obama Administration. So, a continuation of the Democrat Party's lurch to the caustic Left isn't the smartest move.
Now would be the best time for real Democrats - remember, Progressives are not Democrats - to take back their party. Alas, it seems that they are in full-blown Stockholm syndrome to their Progressives captors.
The party of Kennedy is dead if either one of these radical Leftists gets elected DNC chairman.
The 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference kicks off next week in Washington DC. Curiously - or perhaps not so curiously - CPAC hid the speaker list for the event, just finalizing it this past week. Stunningly, they loaded the roster with committed #NeverTrumpers and pro-establishment Republican speakers, ignoring the grassroots supporters and websites that got Republican President Donald Trump Elected.
This is typical RNC and inside the beltway Republican. They are so incredibly tone-deaf to their bases once they ascend to their ivory towers that they literally slap the faces of the very people who facilitated GOP control over the Executive and Legislative Branches of our government.
As the line goes in the movie Forrest Gump, "stupid is as stupid does." Establishment Republicans risk fracturing the party in a very permanent way, something that would allow the flailing Democrat Party (complete with their Progressive overlords) to rise to power once again.
The self-annointed brains of the establishment GOP would be well served if they viewed the past election as a serious shot across the bow. People from the center to the right are done with the go-along to get-along, self-enrichment games in Washington, DC. The RNC and its associated organizations - all of them - had better adapt to the will of the rank-and-file or perish.
Students at the University of Chicago are objecting to the school's Institute of Politics' invitation to former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, saying free speech should not apply equally to everyone. They claim that allowing him to speak "normalizes bigotry" and provides a platform for fascism. The coalition of students claim that the school's "commitment to free expression" doesn't require the institution to host him due to his alleged ties to white supremacists and similarly alleged calls to violence against minority groups and refugees.
Of course, the usual suspect radical Leftists - like the groups from UofC Resists, Students Working Against Prisons, and UChicago Socialists - were integral in the objection.
To borrow from the sentiment of Voltaire - "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" - free speech cannot be a one-way street or a filtered commodity. Free speech must be truly free. This is why "hate speech" laws are completely antithetical to liberty and freedom in every form. It is a morally relativistic cop-out that allows societies to be lazy.
Shielding those who are supposed to be honing critical thinking skills from any type of speech is to deny a full and potent path to attaining those said critical thinking skills. Then, Socialists, oligarchs and one-worlders believe they are above it all and know better than you and I what is hateful and what is culturally acceptable.
Political correctness is for cowards and pansies...)did I say that in my outside voice?)
The chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), is seeking criminal charges against former State Dept. employee Bryan Pagliano, the computer specialist who helped establish Clinton's server while she was secretary of state. Chaffetz sent a letter to Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions Thursday asking him to convene a grand jury or charge him.
Pagliano refused to comply with two subpoenas ordering him to appear before the oversight panel. The GOP-led committee later voted to hold him in contempt of Congress.
It is quite irrelevant whether you supported Hillary Clinton of Donald Trump in the last General Election. What is relevant is this. If we are to be a nation of laws, where everyone is equal under the law, then high-level politicians - be they Democrats, Libertarians, Socialists, Independents or Republicans - have to be held accountable for actions that violate laws.
It is beyond obvious that crimes were committed on several levels in the Clinton email/server scandal. It is equally obvious that Clinton's station kept justice from being served.
Will Pagliano be a "sacrificial lamb"? That remains to be seen. If the swamp is really to be drained in Washington, DC, that can't be the case.
Tuesday, former Vice Presidential candidate and Democrat Senator Time Kaine told hosts on MSNBC's The Morning Joe that Democrats need to fight the Trump administration including online and in the streets, in addition to the at the ballot box:
Given the limited intellectual capacity of the thin-skinned knee-jerk Progressive toadies who take to the streets in violence at the provocations of fake news stories via websites like Occupy Democrats, etc., the choice of words - "fight in the streets" - is completely irresponsible.
The only question that needs to be asked is this. Was Kaine deliberate in his rhetoric or was he not thinking through the repercussions of his words?
With close to half the populace just looking for reasons to "protest" the occupant of the White House, Kaine's words serve as a catalyst for purposeful mayhem.
Look for another Liberal urban area and/or college campus to erupt in violence and destruction some time soon...
Non-citizen Hispanics, as many as 2 million, are illegally registered to vote in the United States, according to a National Hispanic Survey nationwide poll. This bolsters analysis by professors at Old Dominion University.
The little-noticed survey was conducted in 2013 by McLaughlin & Associates to gauge the opinions of US resident Latinos. The poll's page devoted to voter profiles, revealed that of the randomly selected sample of 800 Hispanics, 56 percent, or 448, said they were non-citizens, and of those, 13 percent said they were registered to vote.
This is, again, proof positive for the absolute need for voter identification, no matter how you want to institute it. It is our right as citizens to have secure ballots for our elections. Voting is a right reserved for US citizens and no one else.
Obviously, with as many as 2 million verified to be illegally registered (one does not register unless one intends to vote, especially if they are breaking the law to register), there was a skewing of the vote in th 2014 and 2016 elections. That the Hispanic vote leans demonstrably to the Left, some closer races, it can be said with confidence, were stolen.
So, while the Progressives stoke the dying embers of the "Russian's stole the election from Hillary" false-flag argument, we have a very real threat to free and fair elections - voter registration and vote fraud - that Democrats and Progressives are adamantly refusing to deal with...all for political purposes.
Parisian officials have resorted to using strategically placed boulders in the streets to stop refugees from making camps in the city's streets. Scores of the limestone rocks have been left under a shelter near the Gare du Nord, the Eurostar station from where trains depart for London, making it impossible for vagrants to set-up camp.
French officials, under the weight of an explosion of refugees from the Islamofascist dominated Middle East, have had to break-up rag-tag, impromptu refugee camps like the one in Calais, called "The Jungle", because of crime, sexual assaults and Islamofascist recruitment.
Stunningly, most of the refugees who have transformed the gentle countrysides and bustling urban areas of France into Muslim enclaves, are Muslim men. One has to wonder why these "brave" and "proud" men didn't stay in their own homelands to fight for a government and culture in which they believe instead of flocking to Europe and then demanding the different European cultures acquiesce to their Islamic sensibilities.
While the actions of Parisian officials are unique, they only serve to push the impromptu camps elsewhere; to place where the self-displaced refugee community will, no doubt, foment hatred toward their host countries and their people.
The Progressives are at it again; they are using Washington insiders - now armed with eight years of inside the beltway experience and connections - to organize an ideological "resistance" to the legitimacy of Donald Trump's presidency. Ezra Levin, an Obama Era toady who lurked in the halls of Congress until he scores a position on the White House Domestic Policy Council in the office of Urban Affairs & Mobility, has launched an effort called the Indivisible Project.
This organization has authored, and is disseminating, a propaganda/activist guide called, Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda. The following video explains it in their own words:
These are all high-pressure tactics meant to create the illusion that the Leftist-Progressive movement is more than it really is; that their numbers are greater than they are. These are a version of the same tactics Progressives used to hostilely takeover the Democrat Party. As you can see, once in place - once they have attained power, they believe that station is their right and privilege and fight tooth and nail, using all weapons available, to retain/regain that power.
Conservatives and Republicans - and the "deplorables" - are eons behind Progressives in understanding these tactics. They are also devoid of the commitment it takes to combat the full-frontal political assaults by Progressive activists. Lastly, but certainly not least, Republicans and Conservatives aren't even in the same arena when it comes to messaging.
Until this changes and the Right learns to beat Progressives at their own game, the division in our nation will continue...maybe even get worse.
