Lady Liberty Cried

The Moral and Intellectual Clarity to Win

 

By Justin O. Smith

Lady Liberty had a single tear trickle down Her cheek on January 27th as Her breasts heaved with happiness and relief that a U.S. President, Donald Trump, was finally implementing a sound, logical and sane common-sense approach to who receives visas and permission to enter the United States. However, Lady Liberty cried profusely, upon learning that President Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations was only temporary.

 

On January 27th, Pres. Trump placed a 120 day block on all refugees and a 90 day ban on travel from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, and Somalia. Three of these countries are U.S.-designated sponsors of terror and the rest are war zones; this is about the safety and security of the American people, and it is far from discrimination against Muslims.

 

Congressional members of both parties have promised a biometric entry-exit tracking system on visas for over two decades, and the 9/11 National Commission on Terror Attacks on the United States recommended it thirteen years ago, noting that forty percent of all illegal aliens simply overstayed their visa just like many of the nineteen 9/11 terrorists. Section 7 of President Trump’s executive order calls for this biometric system that has long been delayed by lobbyists from foreign governments, universities, immigration legal firms and the ACLU.

 

And now, with the flames of violence fanned by the Leftist media, America is witnessing violent social convulsions from Berkeley, CA to New York City. Violent communists and anarchists, supported and largely financed by the American Communist Party and the billionaire trouble-maker George Soros, are attacking any conservative counter-protester with pepper-spray and poles, and they are setting fire to their cities.

 

The Washington Post quoted protesters outside the White House saying, “Islamophobia is unpatriotic” and chanting “Let them go … Let them in”.

 

Videos out of the University of California at Berkely show protesters screaming, “No borders, no nations, f— deportations! … No walls, no borders, f— executive orders!”

 

The Left fears that Trump’s executive order is the first step towards a return to pre-1965 immigration policies that favored Western Christians. The Progressive Communists of the Democratic Party have advocated their anti-Western, anti-Christian ideology for over four decades, and they have promoted open borders, globalization and endless immigration from the Third World, in order to destroy America’s Founding Principles through a dangerous form of multiculturalism that encourages ethnic separation and authoritarian government in a hellish “utopia”. [Blog Editor: I’m not always a fan of Natural News as a source nevertheless, this article paints a picture Americans are witnessing right before their eyes.]

 

If this executive order was truly a “Muslim” ban, as asserted by the Leftist “mainstream” media, why didn’t it include forty other Muslim majority countries, including Indonesia and Saudi Arabia, where Christians are regularly intimidated and persecuted?

 

Even if this had been the full Muslim ban once proposed by Trump, so what?

 

An indisputable fact, America is a nation of immigrants, but entering America is a privilege, not a right, and since 1882, Congress was seen as having broad authority over this issue, as our nation’s lawmaker. The U.S. President, too, has broad discretion, under the law, for national security purposes to bar a class of person detrimental to the U.S. from entering the country. Any country, including America, cannot maintain its national security, traditions, cultural identity – its heritage – unless it approves or denies entrants based on the country of origin.

 

Isn’t it revealing that every country listed by President Trump bans Israeli citizens?

 

Reuters reported on January 31st that the Council on American – Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood organization, was preparing a legal challenge. CAIR contends “the order targets Muslims because of their faith, contravening the U.S. Constitutional right to freedom of religion”.

 

Contrary to the assertions of Islam’s apologists, the so-called “religion of peace” is a manifest and existential evil ideology, and the Muslim Brotherhood is just as committed to the destruction of America and the West as its Al Qaeda and Islamic State associates. Islam and its followers are at the center of this debate regarding America’s national security, because they are at the center of so much terror and death around the world, a “religion” [ideology] that professes to be good and “peaceful” with millions of its faithful followers actively supporting or waging violent jihad, killing apostates, hanging homosexuals and stoning women.

 

Senator Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi  shed fake tears over President Trump’s so-called “Muslim ban”, and yet Pres. Obama banned Iraqis in 2011 after two Iraqi terrorists were discovered in Bowling Green, KY selling arms to terrorists back home in Iraq. Did they cry then? Did they cry for the victims of 9/11? Boston? San Bernadino and a litany of other U.S. cities? And have they shed a tear or castigated Japan for its nearly complete ban on Muslims? Americans might like to hear those answers.

 

Several independent studies (Rasmussen, Harvard, PEW) show that a full quarter of the 230,140,996 million “moderate” Muslims of Indonesia (total population 258,316,051 million) support the goals of the terrorist groups of Al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah. Overall, approximately one-third of all Muslims approve of Hamas and one-quarter hold Hezbollah in high esteem. And, just as troubling, 15 percent of Muslims in Turkey, a NATO ally, support suicide bombings.

 

Thousands of educated Muslims worldwide probably acknowledge that the violent terrorism of the Islamofascists, who are fighting in North Africa and the Middle East, is driven by a political ideology embedded in Islam, the Koran and the Hadith (the teachings of Mohammed). [Oxford & IrqaSense.com – pro-Islam] And while a few hundred of these enlightened Muslims might actually seek the reform of Islam, millions more of devout Muslims still follow the Koran quite literally, quickly dismissing any attempt to reform Islam as heresy; many of these are the same Muslims who refuse to fully integrate into any host nation they reside, as blatantly witnessed in the United Kingdom and France, and even in some parts of the United States.

 

From the Hadith: “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror …” — Sahih al Bukhari 4:52:220

 

President Trump’s travel ban is more about the preservation of everyday ordinary American lives and liberty, and it has nothing to do with Islamophobia, racism, fascism or xenophobia. Anyone with a modicum of common-sense can understand that Muslim immigrants require greater scrutiny, especially in light of several past visa screenings that failed to identify foreign nationals who later committed Islamic-inspired terrorist attacks in America.

 

Isn’t now the time for the majority of Americans to demand an immediate and permanent ban on all Muslim immigration?

 

“We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people,” President Trump said, shortly after announcing the travel ban.

 

President Donald Trump has the moral and intellectual clarity to win this religious war, because he can name the enemy, and he has the courage of his convictions. He is already reminding Americans of their country’s proud heritage and exceptionalism, while he refuses to allow the intolerant Islamofascists to turn our tolerance and charity  —  our strength — into weakness.

 

America’s leaders cannot be so overly sensitive in defending other cultures that they stop defending ours. A sane immigration and refugee policy won’t make the Muslims hate America any more than they already do; they hate us simply because we exist. And in the end, if we follow President Trump’s lead, America will be kept safe and Americans will rediscover their Western identity and the Judeo-Christian principles that made America the Greatest Nation on Earth.

 

And Lady Liberty will smile again.

They’ve fought to stop the inauguration
They’re fighting to destroy our nation

While 700,000 protesters are converging on Washington D.C. for Inauguration Day—in addition to anti-Trump rallies planned in dozens of cities across the country—the political groups behind the protests remain shrouded in mystery. As Fox News Channel first reported, Civil War 2017 uncovers an extensive network of neo-Marxist operatives coordinating highly disruptive and potentially violent protests from coast to coast.

Working with Dangerous Documentaries, director Judd Saul and conservative commentator Trevor Loudon have compiled a team of researchers and undercover operatives to probe the roots of the anti-Trump movement, highlighting the ultimate goals and ulterior motives. Mr. Loudon, a regular contributor to Glenn Beck’s online programming, is the foremost expert on the left-wing organizers of mass protests.

Interfaith Harmony between Islam and Other Religions?


can-islam-be-peaceful

John R. Houk

© February 6, 2017

 

My Brother in Christ Shamim Mahmood was involved in the Pakistan version of the World Interfaith Harmony Week is a feel-good annual global event instituted by the United Nations in 2011:

 

World Interfaith Harmony Week is an annual event to be observed during the first week of February starting in 2011.

 

World Interfaith Harmony Week was proclaimed by the General Assembly in resolution A/RES/65/5 adopted on 20 October 2010. In the resolution, the General Assembly, points out that mutual understanding and interreligious dialogue constitute important dimensions of a culture of peace and establishes World Interfaith Harmony Week as a way to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith.

 

Recognizing the imperative need for dialogue among different faiths and religions to enhance mutual understanding, harmony and cooperation among people, the General Assembly encourages all States to support during that week the spread of the message of interfaith harmony and goodwill in the world’s churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other places of worship, on a voluntary basis and according to their own religious traditions or convictions. (World Interfaith Harmony Week; United Nations) 

 

It is my opinion most of the world’s religions can have a cooperative dialogue; however once one or more religions become upset with one or more other religions proselytizing among adherents, then I suspect the cooperation will come to a screaming halt. And yet if competition halts cooperation, most religions are tolerant enough in their belief systems to not erupt into riotous violence in these modern days of the 21st century – THAT IS except one religion in particular. ISLAM!

 

Let’s look at the significant religious tenets of some major religions in relation to dealing with hostile people against a particular faith.

 

Buddhism

 

Much like Christianity Buddhism has various sects that I am not going to examine. There is a central belief among all Buddhists on violence even there is doctrinal disagreement on other issues.

 

The Buddhist tradition is most clearly associated with non-violence and the principle of ahimsa (“no harm”). By eliminating their attachments to material things, Buddhists try to combat covetousness, which in itself has the potential to become a source of anger and violence against others. …  Some Buddhist texts do sanction taking human lives in exceptional cases to protect the sangha or defend the innocent. However, most Theravada and Mahayana Buddhists today reject even these exceptional justifications of killing. … (Buddhism on Peace and Violence; Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World AffairsGeorgetown University)

 

More thoughts on contemporary Buddhism in regard to violence: Buddhism: Peaceful or Violent Religion? By ALAN PETO; AlanPeto.com; 6/23/13)

 

Hinduism

 

The subject of violence has engaged the best minds in India’s religious history. Although Mohandas K. Gandhi has made non-violence synonymous with Hinduism, the tradition has long recognized legitimacy of violence under some circumstances. The dominant, pragmatic approach has endorsed violence when necessary to protect one’s state or people from external or internal attacks. A divergent tradition, insisting on the complete renunciation of violence, was ascendant during the period of the Upanishads. It asserted that violent action must, by the law of karma, produce a violent reaction, and that any action that promotes the interest of one at the expense of another individual is rooted in spiritual delusion that obscures the single spiritual reality—Brahman. The conflict between these competing approaches to force constitutes the heart of the Bhagavad Gita, a dialogue between the god Krishna and the mighty warrior Arjuna, who refused to fight in a righteous cause. Krishna explains that violence is not only necessary for the defense of justice, but that such violence need not conflict with spiritual life. The contradiction between the two values is resolved by disciplined action (action without regard for its fruit), insightful action (recognizing the true nature of the self), and complete devotion to Krishna. (Hinduism on Peace and Violence; Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World AffairsGeorgetown University)

 

Most Americans think of Hinduism as a non-violent faith. Compared to Islam it is true but compared to the central tenets of Christianity (not often observed by history’s Christian rulers), Hinduism can have a violent side. Read these cherrypicked excerpts from the essay entitled “The Co-Existence of Violence and Non-Violence in Hinduism”:

 

The most famous Hindu of all times, Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) is widely perceived, especially in the West, as embodying the Hindu worldview and ethos. Gandhi made ahimsa (non-violence) the cornerstone of his philosophy and practice and spoke of it as constituting the essence of Hinduism. …

 

n recent years, several Hindu organizations have become aggressive and militant in rhetoric and method, reminding us that while Gandhi championed the ethic of ahimsa, there are ancient traditions within Hinduism which sanction violence under certain circumstances and that ahuimsa and himsa (violence) have coexisted uneasily in Hinduism for centuries. The relationship between violence and non-violence is a complex one and Gandhi’s representation of Hinduism must be properly contextualized.

 

 

Vedic society in ancient India did not scrupulously adhere to ahimsa as its highest value. Sacrificial rites involved the slaying of animals and Indra, one of most popular deities of the Vedic period has many warrior-like attributes. While Manu (ca.200 B.C.E.-100 C.E.), ancient India’s influential lawgiver, lists ahimsa among the general human virtues, the ksatriyas are exempt. He permits killing in self-defence and for implementing the injunctions of the Vedas. Two of the most popular epics in the Hindu tradition, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata culminate in lengthy and violent battles.

 

… We see quite clearly from the Bhagavadgita that while the tradition upholds the ultimacy of non-violence, exceptions are made for the use of violence. The Mahabharata war is referred to, in the Bhagavadgita, as a dharma yuddha. A dharma yuddha is a war fought in defence of justice and righteousness and for the security and well being of the community (lokasamgraha). …

 

 

The final characteristic of a dharma yuddha that I want to mention is that violence is justified as a last resort and only after peaceful methods of conflict resolution are exhausted. …

 

It is clear, therefore, that there are influential traditions within Hinduism which justify the use of violence under certain circumstances and which understand the use of violence to be consistent with the Hindu world-view. While it is true that ancient texts, such as the Upanisads, refer frequently to ahimsa, these texts were traditionally meant for seekers of liberation (moksa) who had entered the last of the four stages of life (samnyasa). Such persons were ritually freed from social and familial obligations and dedicated to the quest for liberation. READ ENTIRETY (The Co-Existence of Violence and Non-Violence in Hinduism; By Anantanand Rambachan; World Council of Churches)

 

Christianity

 

The practice of Christianity as embraced by varying nations that would define themselves as Christian have not followed the tenets set down during the earthly walk of Jesus Christ and the Christ’s amplifications as placed into words by direct followers of Jesus Christ. Many atrocities have occurred in history by Christian rulers in the name of Christianity that I am certain the Lord Jesus would have rebuked them:

 

51 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him [i.e. Jesus] to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”[a]

 

55 But He [i.e. Jesus] turned and rebuked them,[b] and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.[c] And they went to another village. (Bold text Editor’s – Luke 9: 51-56 NKJV)

 

Insulting Jesus was not lead to riotous violence. The Beatitudes sums up how Christians should act on a personal level:

 

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven
. (Matthew 5: 3-10 NKJV)

 

The Lord Jesus Christ continues with the Sermon on the Mount (excerpted for the point):

 

11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

 

21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause[b] shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.

 

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[b] 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. (Matthew 5: 11, 21-25, 43-45 NKJV)

 

The New Testament is full of the sentiment of DO NO HARM. As an individual, this is a journey to ever closed to the paradigm of Jesus Christ. Don’t abandon the paradigm because of other’s actions, rather stay on your journey. If you slip into a ditch. GET UP! And crawl out of the ditch to get back onto the journey of the Christ paradigm.

 

Christians are to defend themselves though. The defense should not be acted out of hate or revenge. Rather the defense is to protect the community. Protection does not mean pillaging and raping. It means protection.

 

Islam

 

In full disclosure and if you haven’t figured it out, I am a Christian. I am definitely not a perfect Christian and yet I am devoted to Truth as presented in the Word of God, especially in the New Testament. One standard of trust in of whose I am is John 14:6:

 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (Bold Text Editor’s NKJV)

 

I have to guess all religions believe they hold the keys of Truth. I don’t have a problem with that until anyone representing a different faith or secular ideology tries to force me to think divergently from the Truth I trust. One such religion targeting the belief system of Christianity are the writings revered by Muslims in the Islam way.

 

Christian Truth: Jesus Christ is the Son of God:

 

Matthew 16:13-17

 

13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. (Bold Text Editor’s NKJV)

 

John 5:17-23

 

17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”

 

18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. 19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. 20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will. 22 For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, 23 that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. (Bold Text Editor’s NKJV)

 

Quran 19: 88-95

 

88. And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son.”

 

89. You have done an atrocious thing.

 

90. The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation

 

91. That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son.

 

92. And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son.

 

93. There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant.

 

94. He has enumerated them and counted them a [full] counting.

 

95. And all of them are coming to Him on the Day of Resurrection alone. (SAHIH INTERNATIONAL)

 

This Quranic section is a mere tip of the iceberg in the anti-Christian writings inherent in Islam. And I am not even going into the anti-Jewish sections and the violence that ordered upon Christians, Jews and all non-Muslims who do not bow in submission to Islam’s moon god allah and its pseudo-prophet Muhammad.

 

A website that provides a brief of more anti-Christian surahs can be located here: “Does Jesus ever claim to be God, or the son of God?

 

Keep this in mind my fellow believers in Christ Jesus the Son of God, Lord and Savior:

 

1 John 2: 18-19, 22-23; 4: 13-15; 5: 19-20

 

2:

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a] Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

 

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

 

4:

13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

 

5:

19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. (NKJV)

 

My above thoughts are a demonstration of skepticism that the government of the Islamic Republic is serious about ending Islamic Supremacism in the Pakistan Constitution. If Pakistan amends their Constitution to deliver the same Religious Freedom – including the Free Speech to share a non-Muslim faith without fear of retribution – that Sunni Islam enjoys, then I will be less skeptical.

 

At any rate, below is Shamim Mahmood’s participation and hope of the success of interfaith harmony between religious faiths in Pakistan.

The HUMILIATING Truth About Obama’s Presidency Revealed Just Weeks Before He Leaves Office


If you can believe pollsters that typically pull the Left/Liberal line of disinformation (I mean look at polls and Trump’s victory on November 9), President Barack Hussein Obama is leaving Office with a whopping 58% favorability rating.

 

I found an article by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton that show the obvious incredulity of that Obama favorability poll.

The HUMILIATING Truth About Obama’s Presidency Revealed Just Weeks Before He Leaves Office

 

By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Originally Right Wing News

December 27, 2016

Posted by TMH

NoisyRoom.net

 

Barack Obama will leave office with a 58% approval rating. I don’t know about you, but I find that impossible to believe. He has all but destroyed this country over the past eight years. The list of damages is too long to really go through. Among his greatest crimes are Obamacare, which destroyed the greatest health system in the world. He gutted our military and destroyed the morale of our troops, basically leaving us severely exposed to our enemies. The Iran deal nuclearized the greatest terrorist threat on the planet, all funded by the United States. He opened our borders wide to an invasion and is still bringing in thousands of Muslim refugees that aren’t vetted. And let’s not forget that he brought the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House and got four men killed in Benghazi. His last and possibly most transparent crime was against Israel at the UN, where Obama joined with the jackals and stabbed Israel in the back.

 

Only one in seven Republicans approve of his job performance and I think that number is way too generous. According to Pew Research, 88% of Democrats approve of Obama, while on 15% of Republicans approve. Again… not buying those numbers. Almost a third of this country has been out of work for years… regardless of the unemployment numbers they parade around, which is a massive manipulated lie. Businesses have fled this country at an astounding rate to escape taxes and regulations… all thanks to Obama’s Marxism.

 

Obama limousine – SS Agent

 

From the Daily Mail:

 

President Obama’s job approval rating is a healthy 58 per cent as he begins his glide path out of office, but that number hides a partisan split among Americans that’s wider than any outgoing president has seen since at least the 1960s.

 

During a November 17 press conference in Germany, Obama claimed that ‘based on current surveys of public opinion in the United States, it turns out that most Americans think I’ve done a pretty good job.’

 

But that assessment hides a deep divide: While 88 per cent of Democrats told Pew Research Center pollsters that they have a favorable view of Obama’s work in the Oval Office, just 15 per cent of Republicans agree.

 

That gap – 73 per cent – is far larger than what Gallup polls recorded at the end of the Reagan and Clinton administrations, and as both George Bushes prepared to leave the White House.

 

Obama’s average approval rating across all eight years of his presidency also shows the largest partisan breach measured since opinion surveys began separating data by political party affiliation during the Eisenhower administration.

 

The 73-point party gap is the largest ever measured since pollsters started recording approval ratings during the Eisenhower years. There is such a huge gap between the left and the right now, it is staggering and frankly, frightening. When you see such a disparity between political entities within a country, it usually means you are on the cusp of a civil revolt of some sort. I’m hoping and praying that President-elect Donald Trump can fix enough of the damage to stop that from happening here. The communists have been successful in tearing us apart and causing upheaval and chaos. Thank God Hillary Clinton did not get elected… she would have finished us off, I have no doubt of that.

 

Obama claimed last month that ‘the majority of Americans think I’ve done a pretty good job’. No, they don’t. Only the uninformed or the ones that are communists or Islamists do. That’s the brutal truth. Obama also claimed that if he ran against Donald Trump, he would have beat him. Again, no… he wouldn’t have. Americans are sick of the corruption, Marxism and lies brought on by Barack Obama. That is what he will truly be remembered for. He took Saul Alinsky to heart and really should be included with the other rebel that Alinsky honored… Lucifer: “Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.” ― Saul D. Alinsky, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. That’s one hell of a legacy. Just sayin’.

President Barack Obama has a 58 percent approval rating as he leaves office, but that number hides a massive 73-point gap between Democrats and Republicans.

Averaged over Obama’s eight years in office, approval of the outgoing president’s Oval Office work drew a 67-point partisan gap – the largest measured in more than 60 years.

WATCH – AMAZING Trump Christmas Song: ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time in 8 Years’

 

Email Alert Sent 12/3/2016 11:41 AM

Angry Patriot

 

As the holidays are nearing, Donald Trump and his supporters are preparing to once again face off against Hillary Clinton and liberals galore.

 

This video shows, during a wonderful Christmas theme, Trump doing away with much of the Democrats’ mistakes, especially Obama’s. 

 

They play the song made popular by Andy Williams in the 60’s. It also shows a clip from the famous Christmas movie It’s a Wonderful Life. They have George Bailey beg Donald Trump to make America great again.

 

The video was created by the entertainer Dana Kamide, a talented artist who creates lyrics and videos for entertainment.

 

Anyone who is tired of the Democrats’ control will love this. It’s the perfect catharsis for the last eight years, during which our economy has suffered as well as our communities and our jobs. Obama likes to brag that he was a “pretty good” president, but he’s not convincing anyone.

 

Obama has crushed this country, has made little effort to control the border between Mexico and the United States, and has held more sympathy for refugees from the Middle East than the homeless and destitute in this country.

 

He tried to solve our problems with his “affordable” healthcare, which is now crumbling under its own weight. Many people have exponentially higher payments and are unable to keep their insurance companies, plans, or even their preferred doctor.

 

However, the main problem with the Democrats is that they stifle freedom of speech and dismiss all dissenting opinions instead of actually having a discussion. If they could get rid of free will, I imagine they would do it in a heartbeat.

 

Luckily, we have elected Donald Trump as the next president. Liberals are furious that they didn’t get their way, so they’re crying, complaining, and rioting in the streets. When that didn’t work, now they are trying for a recount.

 

This makes them look like giant hypocrites because Hillary Clinton said it was “appalling” to contest the results of the election. If I had a dollar for every time Hillary Clinton lied or changed her view on something to gain more support, I would be a very rich person. Of course, most general liberals are hypocrites. They protest against violence and then commit violence themselves.

 

They were opposed to a recount only when they were confident Hillary Clinton would win, but now that she’s sitting in the loser’s circle, they’re pretending they always felt that recounts were an essential part of our system. All I want for Christmas is for liberals to go home! Trump and the Republican party won the election, and liberals need to suck it up and deal with it.

The Making of Sergeant Freefall

 

Some people are born angry, some are made angry through tragic life events. The latter is true for Marine Gunnery Sergeant Freefall.

 

While we sat in front of our TVs in horror on 9/11, a family of American Eagles was tragically destroyed. Sgt. Freefall’s parents created a nest at the top of the World Trade Center in early August. They thought they had found the perfect home to raise a family. Soon thereafter, Sgt. Freefall’s mother laid her first egg.

 

Unfortunately, just as the egg was ready to hatch, the terrorist attack took place in New York City. While Sgt. Freefall’s mother and father were killed in the bombing, the egg fell from the sky and miraculously landed in the hands of a fireman. Inspired by these events, that fireman would join the Marines to fight for his country.

 

Once again, tragedy would strike.

House Lawmakers to Nix Obama Admin-Backed Sale of U.S. Planes to Iran

Dear God in Heaven, did Obama actually believe he could sell planes to Iran and Congress would do nothing about it? Is it really too late to impeach him for treason?

House Lawmakers to Nix Obama Admin-Backed Sale of U.S. Planes to Iran

Iran angling to rebuild war fleet with American planes

 

By Adam Kredo

November 16, 2016 5:00 am

Washington Free Beacon

 

Lawmakers in the House are expected to overwhelmingly pass new legislation on Wednesday that would prohibit the Obama administration from facilitating the sale of U.S. aircraft to Iran, according to senior congressional sources who told the Washington Free Beacon that Iran is likely to use American-made planes to rebuild its aging air force.

 

The legislation is viewed as an early test for the incoming Trump administration, which has broadly opposed last year’s comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran and intimated that it would be more confrontational with the Islamic Republic.

 

Senior congressional sources told the Free Beacon that House leaders scheduled the vote on this bill immediately following the election to signal that lawmakers are frustrated with the Obama administration’s ongoing diplomacy with Tehran.

 

If approved, the new bill would bar the Obama administration from granting legal exemptions to corporations such as Boeing, which is working to finalize a multi-billion dollar landmark deal with Iran. The Obama administration has already vowed to veto the legislation.

 

“The American people gave us a mandate to fight radical Islamic terrorism. Preventing aircraft sales to the world’s leading terror state is a pretty good start,” said one senior GOP aide familiar with the legislation. “Clearly this is a top priority for House Republicans—we are making this the first bill we put on the floor after the election. The Boeing-Iran sale is a great opportunity for President-elect Trump to claim an early national security win.”

 

Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), a vocal critic of the nuclear deal and Iran’s continued military buildup, told the Free Beacon that Republican House lawmakers will easily pass the legislation.

 

“It’s no secret I’ve been a vocal critic of the Iran deal—it was a horrible idea at the time and it has proven even worse as we’ve learned about secret side deals and more unilateral concessions to the Mullahs,” Roskam said. “But even those who supported the [nuclear deal] should support this bill. Nothing in the Iran deal obligates the U.S. to allow American banks to finance the Islamic Republic’s efforts to rebuilt its air fleet.”

 

The Obama administration said in a statement late Monday that the legislation would interfere with the United States’ ability to uphold its end of the nuclear deal, which includes guarantees that Iran would be able to access the U.S. marketplace for commercial aircraft.

 

“The bill would undermine the ability of the United States to meet our JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] commitments by effectively prohibiting the United States from licensing the sale of commercial passenger aircraft to Iran for exclusively civil end uses, as we committed to do in the JCPOA, and seeking to deter companies from pursuing permissible business with Iran,” the White House said in a statement.

 

Critics of the administration’s position have pointed to evidence that Iran has a history of converting civilian planes for use in its air force and military.

 

The Free Beacon in October disclosed several instances in which U.S.-made airplanes purchased by Iran in the 1970s had been used by Iran’s military.

 

Roskam told the Free Beacon at the time that there was reason to expect Iran would make similar use of any new planes it purchased from Boeing, which did not respond to a request for comment on the new legislation.

 

“We should not be surprised to see Iran’s latest military demonstrations feature Boeing 747s,” Roskam said. “It is incredibly irresponsible for any American company to sell products to the Islamic Republic that can easily be used for military purposes.”

 

“This is not hypothetical,” Roskam said. “We know the military has requisitioned Boeing planes from Iran Air in the past. Boeing is literally enhancing the military capabilities of the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”

Forgotten Americans Spoke


Intro to ‘Forgotten Americans Spoke’

Edited by John R. Houk

By Justin O. Smith

 

This part-essay and part op-ed piece is quite thought provoking. Justin Smith writes about how Americans rose up and voted for Trump largely repudiating the Obama legacy and the continued Crony-Leftism of Crooked Hillary.

 

Justin praises the electoral system and the wisdom of the Founding Fathers to make that a part of their American experiment. And that made me think of the hysterical Leftist in the tank Clintonistas going ballistic breaking the public order with vandalism and violence. There is a Left Wing push to those responsible for the Electoral College to reject the Constitutional path to POSTUS and revote according to the national popular vote which as of this writing has Crooked Hillary up by a mere .2% over President-Elect Trump.

 

For those that didn’t pay attention in school, one of the reasons for the Electoral College is to balance political power between populous States and less populous States. If you look at a Hillary vs. Trump map as affecting the Constitutional Electoral College, YOU will notice Trump’s victory is a virtual landslide in terms of the Electoral College.

 

The below map was for 11/14/16 with Trump at 290 and Crooked Hillary at 228 as of 1:05 PM ET with Michigan nearly to be able to be declared for Trump (add 16 Electoral votes to Trump column):

Forgotten Americans Spoke

OR — Leftist Heads Spin

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 11/14/2016 12:21 PM

 

Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th, 2017, in large part because he so easily and defiantly laughed in the face of the D.C. establishment types, who thought he was a joke, and he turned the old political order on its head. Trump rejected soul-draining and mind-numbing identity politics and double standards in the law, that centered on whether one was a Republican or Democrat. He addressed the real issues of the day from immigration and “refugee” policies to Obamacare and national security, and he bluntly outlined how our world is filled with enemies, adversaries and competitors as well as friends. He opened a pathway for Americans to forcefully oppose the long-entrenched D.C. establishment, and the hyphen-free Americans took it, as they chose to make America work for all Americans, not just those in power.

 

Certainly, it is a positive act for any candidate to be magnanimous in victory, as Trump is showing. But he shouldn’t fall for the Leftist Progressive Democrats’ overanxious con — the “poison chalice” — of reaching across the aisle for “compromise”. The Democrats didn’t even know the meaning of the word in 2009 when Obama and his Democrat majority rammed Obamacare down our throats.

 

Trump needs to stay true to his agenda and to those Americans who put their faith in him. He needs to strike hard, while the stars are aligned and the iron is hot, to accomplish much in his first year. Any delay only gives his political enemies and the Leftist media time to gain control of the valves needed to “drain the swamp” in D.C., so Trump must not be overly concerned with those Leftists who are upset that he won, even if their heads are spinning on their shoulders and their tears are making the oceans rise.

 

And conservative Americans must also drive home the lessons of the benefits of a conservative free-market capitalist system, guided under the Founders’ Original Intent in the U.S. Constitution, over Marxist socialism. We must continue to illustrate how capitalism expands liberties, while socialism limits and destroys those same liberties.

 

On November 8th, Obama and most of Americas thought Hillary Clinton was poised early on to win, which prompted Obama to say that (regardless of who wins) “the sun will come up in the morning.” And as the sun rose the next day, a shocked Obama found himself expressing “hope” that Trump would be invested in unity, respect for American institutions and the nation’s way of life and the rule of law; all of this coming from Obama, a man and a U.S. President who had no respect for any of those things.

 

Let’s not forget too quickly that over the last eight years, Obama and his criminal cohorts, radical progressives/communists, used the Executive Branch to unleash the IRS dogs on conservative Americans and conservative political groups. He worked to destroy the coal industry that supported thousands of families, all on an ideological whim based on false science, and he attempted to intimidate conservatives away from exercising their constitutional rights for fear that armed federal agents might arrest them.

 

Let’s not forget how normal Americans have been depicted as racial “cowards” by Clinton associate Eric Holder, former U.S. Attorney General, after being attacked as “xenophobes” and “nativists” by progressives and RINO immigration expansionists. Don’t easily forgive the incessant accusations of “Islamophobia” by Hillary and the progressives in the wake of numerous islamofascist attacks on America. Hold on a bit longer to that anger resulting from baseless accusations of “homophobia” over our protest of homosexual marriage, and continue to mourn those police officers ambushed by murderous thugs seeking racial vengeance — all of this coming from Democrat Progressive policies and propaganda.

 

Hillary Clinton, in a conciliatory tone stated during her concession speech, “We owe him an open mind and as chance to succeed.” She was probably quite fearful that Trump would follow through on his promise to prosecute her, however, this is most unlikely to happen given Trump’s statement in his victory speech that “we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.” This in itself is a troubling start to Trump’s presidency, although he did tell ’60 Minutes’ on Nov. 13th that he wants “to think about it.” He also is now back-pedaling on immigration.

 

An unreasonable fear has also gripped the Leftists and anarchists who either purposefully, or from ignorance, misinterpret Trump’s proposals as “racist”. They have protested and rioted in several major U.S. cities like Los Angeles, Portland, New York and Miami, since November 9th, shouting “not my president”.

 

The Washington Post reported that issues of national security, rule of law and scope of government and rejecting Obama’s liberal agenda propelled Trump to victory, rather than any racist considerations. They assert that “on average, the counties that voted for Obama twice and then flipped to support Trump were 81% white”.

 

Isn’t this ironic? Now that the shoe is on the other foot, all of a sudden the Leftist Progressives, who wanted Obama to ignore the Constitution and take full advantage of “the pen”, are showing a great and renewed interest in that old tired concept of “checks and balances.”

 

And in the meantime, Americans who love God, Family and America are rejecting the corruption in our government. We reject the elites who hold us in contempt. We reject any government official, any leader and any unconstitutional “law” attempting to silence us and make us bow, kneel and obey the arbitrary whims of an out-of-control State.

 

Pray for America. Pray for Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they face this massive responsibility of healing and unifying America the best they can, and help them keep America safe and Free.

 

Ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women who love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and for their families … a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people, and serve the people it will. … Every single American will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.” — Donald Trump’s presidential victory speech

Brother Can You Spare A Dime


trump-make-america-feel-the-earn

I have been posting over the last week primarily on Crooked Hillary’s corruption, Dem corruption, Clinton crime corruption and the corruption that has been inherent in the Obama Administration especially coming to light in cover-ups trying to protect a Crooked Hillary election in November 2016.

 

In sum – a load of CORRUPTION!

 

This Justin Smith submission addresses the substance of what Trump desires to achieve for America compared to the Leftist agenda of Crooked Hillary that will further diminish America.

Brother Can You Spare A Dime

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 10/29/2016 1:46 PM

 

“Once I built a tower to the sun. Brick and rivet and lime … Now it’s done. Brother can You spare a dime?”

 

Donald Trump is telling America the truth about our economy, and he has offered wise and courageous solutions that will in fact set our economy afire with prosperity for all, despite assertions of the naysayers of the Democratic Progressive Party. He doesn’t have all the answers, but he knows enough to understand that policies that create a Democratic base of takers must be ended if all America is going to thrive and prosper once more. He will throw out the policies Hillary and her progressives seek to extend and expand, that have betrayed American workers, who are mucking through the worse economic “recovery” of the past 80 years, and America First will replace globalism as our guiding light.

 

The Obama administration wants us to believe inflation is at zero, after they removed everything that matters from the inflation index, but one’s grocery, electric and healthcare bills, along with college tuition, proves that inflation is raging. Obama’s policies have pushed the GDP down to barely above zero, while they have very nearly destroyed all the high-paying skilled jobs for the middle class and college grads. And in the meantime, over 90 million working age Americans are on welfare and foodstamps, and the workforce participation rate is under 63%.

 

America must exit this economic crash-and-burn trajectory and stop the Federal Reserve’s policy of manipulating low interest rates, printing an excess of U.S. dollars backed only by U.S. taxpayers and monetizing our debt. Without controls on government spending and a balanced budget, the Federal Reserve is merely delaying another inevitable economic crash — the worse yet.

 

Trump doesn’t lie about it, stating plainly that “we have a very false economy.” He has noted that the “stock market is bloated“, as a result of quantitative easing and centrally planned government financial stimulus.

 

Hillary, bought and paid for by George Soros, Warren Buffet, and Bill Gates and always eager to redistribute the wealth between failing Wall Street firms, instinctively knows not to discuss the Fed’s inflationary actions and interest rates price fixing. She sees the Federal Reserve Bank as the tool that smooths the way for more Big Centralized Government. She also expects the Fed to keep interest rates low so she can continue Obama’s rape of the American economy.

 

Pure uncorrupted laissez-faire capitalism offers the best path for achieving enormous prosperity, and those who advocate laissez-faire capitalism are the only true advocates for liberty, since great economic prosperity has historically always brought forth great liberty for men and women alike. Donald Trump isn’t quite a “laissez-faire capitalist”, but he gets close enough for government work.

 

Hillary Clinton is mimicking FDR’s 1944 policies and referring to wants and needs as “rights”. She would have one believe that one has a “right” to a job, food, clothing, homes, healthcare and a college education, whether you have worked and earned it or not. This is what she now offers to the takers and the socialists of America, with 50% of young Americans now viewing socialism favorably, according to Pew Research.

 

Who will pay for all of this?

 

Ayn Rand, who escaped the Bolshevik communists in 1917, noted the following in 1963:

 

If some men are entitled by right to the products of the work of others, it means that those others are deprived of rights and condemned to slave labor. … Any alleged ‘right’ of one man, which necessitates the violation of the rights of another is not and cannot be a right.”

 

On August 18th, Trump told a Charlotte, NC crowd: “I will not rest until children of every color in this country are fully included in the American Dream. Jobs, safety, opportunity. Fair and equal representation. This is what I promise to African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and all Americans. … [Adding] Let our children be Dreamers too,” as he co-opted a term used by immigration activists.

 

Trump plans to remove all job killing regulations and reduce corporate taxes from 35% to 15%, and this will open our economy to new investments and business expansions. These two common sense acts alone will unfetter capital for old businesses and see new businesses form more easily, creating thousands of new jobs.

 

America can forget about economic growth and new jobs if Hillary is elected. She has spent her entire career voting and advocating for tax increases, and now she wants a massive $1.3 trillion dollar job killing tax increase [See Section: TAXES AND REGULATION]. She wants to hit some of the wealthiest private sector with an 80% tax rate [The Federalist & DonaldTrump.com], and she will tax small businesses at close to 50%, driving many of them to close their doors and lay off employees.

 

Hillary likes to brag that her energy plan will “put a lot of coal companies and coal miners out of business“. She intends to continue Obama’s energy restrictions, and according to the Heritage Foundation, these restrictions will eliminate 500,000 manufacturing jobs and reduce our nation’s output by $2.5 trillion by 2030, and individual incomes will drop $7000 annually.

 

The Institute for Energy Research likes Trump’s plan to lift restrictions on all sources of American energy, noting that it will have a near immediate effect of adding over 500,000 new jobs annually. His plan increases our GDP by more than $100 billion dollars annually, and it increases federal, state and local tax revenues by $6 trillion dollars over forty years. It also increases annual wages by more than $30 billion dollars over the next seven years. And overall, this one plan increases total economic activity in America by more than $20 trillion dollars over the next four decades.

 

Hillary’s judgement on trade isn’t any better. She supported Obama’s South Korean trade deal, which was supposed to increase our exports to South Korea by more than $10 billion dollars and make 70,000 American jobs. Instead, this deal has killed 100,000 U.S. jobs, and our exports to South Korea haven’t seen any increase; however, their imports to us increased more than $15 billion dollars and more than doubled our trade deficit with them.

 

Americans should be prepared for Hillary to betray them on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty too. She has been for it all along and from the very beginning, until just recently. If the TPP makes it to the Oval Office during a presidency led by Clinton, she will enact it, because her donors will demand it, and she won’t cut off her pipe-line to millions of dollars more of ill-gotten gains.

 

During his campaign rally in West Bend, Wisconsin, Trump told a huge throng of people:

 

I am fighting for you. … It’s time to stop making the special interests rich. It’s time to make the American people rich. I am going to make America wealthy again.  … On trade, I am going to renegotiate NAFTA, stand up to China, withdraw from the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and protect every last American job.”

 

Vote for Hillary and the poor will grow poorer and the middle class will become the new poor. Poverty will become a way of life in America.

 

Vote for Trump and Americans will do more than subsist. More Americans will have significantly greater incomes that allow them to increase their savings, invest, recreation time, luxury items or give money to charities to help any Americans who are still struggling.

 

Americans have always saved our fellow countrymen who were homeless or impoverished, long before our republic, long before FDR and long before Johnson’s Great Society, and we will continue to do so whenever it is necessary. But America will soon be on a road to a thriving economy by any standard, because we are going to build an economy that creates jobs for people who want to work and contribute to society and grow our economic engine, by unbinding the hands of those people in positions to do that very thing, if only we reject the progressive socialist vision of taxation — rejecting this collectivist tyranny — and vote for Donald Trump.
