AMAZING! A Bin Ladin Supports Trump


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Posted September 8, 2020

 

Justin Smith found this amazing New York Post piece on Noor bin Ladin, niece of Islamic terrorist Osama (aka Usama) bin Laden. Why amazing? Although raised in Switzerland, Noor is quite the proponent of President Donald Trump and an opponent of the Globalist Left and Islamic terrorism. The NY Post shares Noor’s story. Justin Smith found a PDF by Noor bin Ladin entitled, “My Letter to America”. The letter is a veritable MAGA defense to Americans against the Dem-Marxists, Marxist rioters, COVID fearmongers and such ilk.

 

With the anniversary of the Islamic attack on American soil emerging on 9/11, you would do well to read the NY Post story followed by successive screen grabs (4 pages) of Noor’s letter to Americans.

 

VOTE TRUMP on November 3 or any early voting you participate in. DO NOT ALLOW LYING DEMS TO STEAL THE ELECTION AND YOUR LIBERTY!

 

(I am beginning with an edited version of Justin Smith’s introduction to Noor bin Laden.)

An Intro – A Letter to America from Noor bin Ladin

I thought You would view this with the same great interest that I have. Noor bin Ladin is the half-niece of Osama, but she loves, advocates and adheres to the same principles of freedom as we do, since she was born and raised in Switzerland. She considers herself an American at heart, according to the New York Post.

 

She purposely spells her last name differently; in case You noticed my spelling of it.

 

Here is her letter to America in the link I’m providing, and also here is the New York Post article detailing her life. I thought You might find her letter worth printing.

Osama bin Laden’s niece says only Trump can prevent another 9/11

Another 9/11-style attack may be just around the corner if Joe Biden is elected president, warns Noor bin Ladin, the niece of Sept. 11 terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.

 

“ISIS proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading to them coming to Europe. Trump has shown he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike,” bin Ladin, 33, told The Post in her first-ever interview.

 

Bin Ladin (whose branch of the family has always spelled their name differently than her infamous uncle) lives in Switzerland but said she considers herself “an American at heart.” A full-size US flag hung in her childhood room at age 12 and her dream vacation is an RV trip across America.

 

The stunning, Swiss-born bin Ladin says she is all in for Trump in 2020, calling the election the most important in a generation.

 

“I have been a supporter of President Trump since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015. I have watched from afar and I admire this man’s resolve,” she said. “He must be re-elected … It’s vital for the future of not only America, but Western civilization as a whole.”

 

“You look at all the terrorist attacks that have happened in Europe over the past 19 years. They have completely shaken us to the core … [Radical Islam] has completely infiltrated our society,” bin Ladin continued. “In the US it’s very worrying that the left has aligned itself completely with the people who share that ideology.”

While Trump has long been a polarizing figure in the United States, he is even more toxic in Europe, where views of US leadership have plummeted since he took office. A 2018 Gallup poll found just 18% of Swiss citizens approved of his job performance.

 

Noor, who said she regularly wears a “Make America Great Again” hat (and occasionally a Trump bedtime onesie), has had to confront many Trump-haters on her side of the Atlantic. During a recent trip to the grocery store while wearing the iconic red cap, Noor was accosted.

 

“I am minding my own business and this woman in her late 50s charges toward me and starts speaking very loudly and aggressively to me,” she recalled. “She’s yelling at me and saying how can I be wearing this and Trump is the worst president ever and she’s basically dumping on my beloved president … She told me three times, ‘You’re stupid.’ I kept my cool, and needless to say I kept my hat!”

And it’s not just Trump. From her perch in Western Europe, Noor bin Ladin has been a keen and meticulous consumer of conservative media and advocate of their most hot-button causes. Though soft-spoken with aristocratic graces, she can offer lengthy monologues railing against Spygate, tech censorship of conservative voices, mandatory mask-wearing, the New York Times’ discredited 1619 Project, and even Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s controversial executive order requiring nursing homes to accept seniors with COVID-19.

 

Her favorite television show is Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and she’s chummy with Laura Loomer. The rising GOP star running for Congress in Florida is a ferocious opponent of radical Islam, but has also been accused by critics of Islamophobic remarks.

 

“Laura has been very vocal about this and I commend her for being brave enough and speaking out,” said bin Ladin, who was not raised with any religion.

 

Bin Ladin didn’t mince words about The Squad either, and offered high praise to The Post’s front page calling out Rep. Ilhan Omar’s “some people did something” remarks about 9/11.

 

“You do have a situation now in America where you have people like Ilhan Omar who actively hate your country,” bin Ladin said, noting how Omar had urged “compassionate” sentences for 13 ISIS recruits busted in her home state of Minnesota.

 

“It’s an honor to be able to go and live in the United States and make the most out of all the opportunities,” bin Ladin said, choking up. “If she hates it so much, why doesn’t she leave.”

 

Bin Ladin is the daughter of Carmen Dufour, a Swiss author, and Yeslam bin Ladin — an older half-brother of Osama. Dufour and Yeslam split in 1988 and Noor, along with her two sisters, Wafah and Najia, were raised in Switzerland.

For most of her adult life, Noor helped her mother with a nasty and years-long divorce from Yeslam, who has played no role in her life. After the 9/11 attacks, Carmen became a brief international sensation with her 2004 tell-all account of her life in the bin Laden family: “Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia.”

 

Unlike her older sister Wafah, an international pop singer and socialite, Noor bin Ladin has kept a low profile. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Geneva, a master’s in commercial law from the University of London, and a computer coding bootcamp under her belt. She’s worked in startups and is currently writing a book analyzing the first 20 years of the 21st century.

 

“My life would have been very different had I been raised in Saudi Arabia,” she said. “I really grew up with this deep appreciation for freedom and basic individual rights.”

Bin Ladin recalled how she played soccer in school for 13 years. “My mom would come to all the games and she would say, ‘When I see you play, I know that all the hardship was worth it because you get to do what you choose and what you love.’”

 

Noor was just 14 when her uncle perpetrated the deadliest attack on US soil in history. From the moment the second plane hit, she knew her life would never be the same.

 

“I was so devastated,” she recalled. “I had been going to the States with my mom several times a year from the age of 3 onwards. I considered the US my second home.”

 

Bin Ladin said part of the reason she rejected liberal assertions that America was a “racist country” was based on her own lived experience.

 

“I have not had a single bad experience with Americans despite the name that I carry. On the contrary, I was overwhelmed by their kindness and understanding,” bin Ladin said, adding she’s been back to the US a few times since the attacks. She hasn’t visited the memorial yet, but is planning on it the next time she is in New York.

 

“I really want to go and pay my respects.”

We Must Not Let Marxists Win


Whether you are cognizant or not, America is at present in a cultural civil war on the precipice ideologies violently clashing. The ideologies: Marxist (reminiscent of Maoist) transformation expounded by Dems, the Dem Party armed wings of Antifa/BLM and the MSM propaganda machine VERSUS proponents of American exceptionalism espousing Christian principles as the foundation of good governance. Justin Smith asks the when and/or WHERE will the proponents of American exceptional stand up VOCALLY for America?

We Must Not Let Marxists Win

Where Are Those Sons of Liberty?

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  7/16/2020 12:46 AM

 

I should like merely to understand how it happens that so many men, so many villages, so many cities, so many nations, sometimes suffer under a single tyrant who has no other power than the power they give him; who is unable to harm them only to the extent to which they have the willingness to bear him; who could do them absolutely no injury unless they preferred to put up with him rather than contradict him. Surely a striking situation! Yet it is so common that one must grieve the more and wonder the less at the spectacle of a million men in serving wretchedness, their necks under the yoke, not constrained by a greater multitude than they …”  ~ Etienne de la Boetie, 1552, The Politics of Obedience

 

Someone once told me that if America wasn’t careful ten percent of the passionate madding masses would control the remainder of the country’s people, reminding me that approximately eight percent undid Russia in 1917, and today we bear witness to three percent of the population, the radicals and criminals, forcing ninety-seven percent to cower, in hopes of the authorities finally doing their duty.

 

[Blog Editor: Descriptions of the Russian Revolution that should cause 21st century American alarm:

 

 

 

 

This small group, even within our government institutions, is wreaking havoc and chaos across the country and working hard to destroy our American way of life; their treason and treachery are shredding our rule of law and holding our law enforcement professionals impotent and under their Maoist gun of cultural revolution, something unseen in American history, And we must not let them win.

 

No matter what is going on in our lives or how hard our current struggle just to pay bills and place food before our families may be, the millions of good and decent people of America — the Silent Majority — can no longer afford to be silent. If Americans wish to survive this onslaught against liberty and freedom by the socialists, communists and anarchists, we must stand as [JOS] Children of Light against the Children of Darkness, as our democratic republic is exposed to the dangers of the confusion of the harbingers of the Maoist cultural revolution and outright communism, that threatens to overtake what was once a free society and impose tyranny.

 

To hear Senator Romney and Senator Rubio tell it, these radicals, the mobs and Antifa and Black Lives Matter carry bricks and rocks, bicycle locks and Molotov cocktails simply to defend themselves from the “fascists”, who are evidently the good and decent store owners huddling inside their businesses hoping the mob doesn’t burn it down, or the guards getting murdered in the street trying to defend private property.

 

This is America’s primary problem. Half of Her people don’t really want liberty and freedom. They want total government control of all resources and all people, doling out rewards to those who properly toe the correct party line of the day.

 

Embattled, President Donald J. Trump in this moment has an especially fine understanding of the dire, extensive emergency that lies before all America, as he moves against the seditious efforts of the Deep State that are intent on collapsing the Republic, bringing us into a fourth turning of society that will move the country into a thousand years of darkness.

 

Standing before Mount Rushmore, in South Dakota, on July 4th, [JOS] President Trump exclaimed: “Make no mistake: this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress.”

 

The only fools who want to “fundamentally transform” a well-crafted Republic into a doomed-from-the-start authoritarian Socialist regime are those narcissistic, psychopathic personalities attracted to centralized Big Government and its Treasury and economic interests. Once in office or empowered by those Marxists in office, they always seek to use government for their own agenda, their own ends, until that government becomes so overburdened, it self-destructs.

 

To date, especially in Marxist controlled cities and states, Americans have watched in angry horror as governors and mayors basically did nothing and gave de facto permission to massive mobs, of Black and White people alike, to loot — EeRrrr — go shopping without money for purchases — along Fifth Avenue in New York City and Lower Broad in Nashville, as well as hundreds of other cities. The mobs were urged on by their Antifa and Black Lives Matter Communist allies and instigators, who see America as ripe for the taking, after the police were made spectators awaiting their own dismissal and forced to endure the opprobrium of those communist office-holders, for no other reason than their existence at all offends the new cultural Maoists who seek to destroy every last vestige of traditional America.

 

Everybody who holds the slightest love for America is left wondering what new manifestation of tyranny might appear, as the faked numbers surrounding a supposed “resurgence of Covid-19” has a large number of states either already shutdown or preparing to do so, including idiot “lawmakers” in my home state of Tennessee. Our elected officials seem oblivious to the real damage caused by new job layoffs, businesses destroyed and the anxiety, fear and seething anger from those poor lower economic strata Folks reliant on other businesses for a means to earn a living, or not fortunate enough to be able to work from home.

 

The rule of the day seems to suggest that a situation, an imposed policy or an order, are not actually judged by any real Constitutional edict or amendment, but rather an order is Constitutional, whenever a judge or a politician declares it so.

 

As Murray Rothbard wrote in 1961: “From any libertarian, or even conservative, point of view, it (the Constitution) has failed and failed abysmally, for let us never forget that every one of the despotic incursions on man’s rights in this century, before, during and after the New Deal have received the official stamp of Constitutional blessing.”

 

So we find that necessity and “for the greater good” overrules the Constitution virtually every time, as we have seen when Japanese Americans were placed in holding camps during WWII, and recently when Homeland Security and the NSA were given “permission” to monitor all Americans’ communications — because of terrorism, of course. And the point has been made that if an emergency order requires it, people who refuse “stay-at-home” orders and mask mandates could quite possibly find themselves being incarcerated en masse; the same logic might be applied against anyone refusing mandated vaccinations that are now being considered, or even the confiscation of privately owned firearms, under a declaration they represent a “public health crisis”; and if implemented, each of these acts of tyranny would no doubt be deemed constitutional.

 

So longs as the American people tolerate such abuses, they will continue.

 

Witness liberty and the infringement of it by the class of envy, those Marxists who see government as their means to a utopia. They must have control and many on the right also love this control, since it allows them to also control opponents, forcing mask mandates and dictating which private companies are allowed to open and those that must stay closed.

 

The new aged Maoists of the class of envy are the haters of liberty who don’t want to be held accountable for their own bad choices, denying personal responsibility for anything, especially their own failure. They are envious of the rewards the successful have reaped by way of their own hard work, and so, even though they rejected an industrious lifestyle, they demand the same standard of living that so often accompanies the same — all the while calling on government to set things right and make things “equal” and “just” but then screaming to the mountain tops if government dares to inhibit them in any manner, especially if it inhibits them from silencing conservatives and looting and burning their neighborhoods and cities and moving on to those next door, for more of the same.

 

These Marxists and Maoists are desiring a recreation of Russia or China in America, but at the same time, they want the benefits and luxury that America’s liberty has created for Her people. And with a gross degree of naivety, they want license to continue on their way with their latest toys and electronic gadgets, furnished by the government, and their Nikes made in sweat shops, while complaining to the delusional apparatchiks in the (CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC etc.) Sorry-Ass Main Stream Media about being oppressed.

 

And I’m certain that many in the Democratic Party, and even a few in the GOP, are hoping for this crisis, the virus and the anti-police/”Defund the Police” riots, to continue, so that the chaos and the mob rule — the pawns — can be manipulated and turned to their advantage. They intend on keeping America in such disarray and chaos, in order to eliminate Constitutional governance and end the Republic, until the only remedy for a majority of Americans is to finally accept the iron fist of tyranny.

 

Small businesses, the economic work-horse of America, independent private owned farms, volunteer firemen, local theaters, swimming holes, friendly impromptu neighborhood baseball games, museums of art, small libraries and their lovely, little, sweet old lady librarians will all fall victim to the new Maoist cultural revolution and its Marxist comrades. And with it, so too will our heritage, our culture and our traditional America be gone, as though it had never existed, left to the telling in stories by the old heads that manage to survive the purges in their last good-byes.

 

Who would willingly accept such misery, full of fear, divisiveness and despair and so void of pleasure, joy and human contact that it kills the souls of conscientious, righteous men and women, when the cure for tyranny is so simple to administer, especially in this day and time?

 

America is being challenged and absolute truths are being turned inside out by Orwellian methods. A nation that was once melded in a powerful sense of unity, now seems to be splintering into groups and factions, while our sacred borders, our shared history and the pride that typically was associated with it all, our common language and our culture are all under attack. America’s proud past precedes Her, and even though Her benevolence and righteous nature and numerous sacrifices for the entire world overshadows all Her past misdeeds, worthless rags like The New York Times seek to trash Her and make the sum of Her nothing more than the fact that slavery existed in the United States over a century and a half ago, at a time when Africa and Europe were the slave-trading nations, and even though some countries to this day practice slavery.

 

In his Mt. Rushmore speech, President Trump stated: “The radical ideology attacking our country advances under the banner of social justice into an instrument of division and vengeance, and it would turn our free and inclusive society into a place of repression, domination, and exclusion.” Adding: “They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery in America and, ultimately around the world, ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years. Our opponents would tear apart the very documents that Martin Luther King used to express his dream, and the ideas that were the foundation of the righteous movement for Civil Rights. They would tear down the beliefs, culture, and identity that have made America the most vibrant and tolerant society in the history of the Earth.”

 

Where in the Hell are You, those Sons of Liberty and masters of their own fates, those of You who purport to be the Defenders of Liberty and Freedom and America? Why aren’t every single one of You out in the streets going toe to toe and head to head with these radical rioters, putting them down if necessary, in the absence of law, and going head to head with the Marxists holding the “rule of law” hostage, dragging them from their offices, kicking and screaming, if need be? No … I’m not advocating circumventing “the rule of law” and the Constitution. I’m advocating restoring it, in the absence of any who seem likely or willing to do so.

 

If You don’t show yourselves soon, in a sufficient show of force to impress upon our leaders that this is about to go to the next level, you can kiss America and everything that has held true of Her good-bye. [Bold text indicates Blog Editor agreement.]

 

Refuse to obey and conform to the illegitimate rules, regulations and orders emanating from ill-informed, illiberal, ignorant governors and mayors and their staffs, and reject their tyranny. Decide to claim liberty for all the American people once more and reject the unconstitutional “laws” of those who would be our masters and force us into servitude and serfdom under an authoritarian government. No self-respecting American Patriot can afford to be indifferent to his own best interests and those of his family and his community, because if the desire to be free and holding tight to one’s personal liberty does not beat hard within one’s own heart and mind, if this notion is lost to the public at large, then so too does liberty become lost.

 

As for me, I will choose to die standing on my own two feet, fighting for American and Freedom and Liberty, if need be, before I choose to live on my knees in servitude to any government or tyrant. Most of us fighting to restore America today are in agreement, that while life is dear and peace is sweet it loses its essence if purchased at the price of chains and slavery, and that in and of itself is too high a price to pay. [Bold text indicates Blog Editor agreement.]

 

To quote Ronald Reagan, from October 1964, he so poignantly declared:

 

“We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

“We cannot buy our security, our freedom from the threat of the bomb by committing an immorality so great as saying to a billion human beings now enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, “Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skins, we’re willing to make a deal with your slave masters.” Alexander Hamilton said, “A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.” Now let’s set the record straight. There’s no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there’s only one guaranteed way you can have peace — and you can have it in the next second — surrender.

 

Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face — that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand — the ultimatum. And what then — when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we’re retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he’d rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us.

 

You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin — just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

 

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this — this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits — not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”

 

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

 

We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.” [The portion utilized by Justin Smith]

 

This right here is my life motto. This video is an excerpt from future president Ronald Reagan’s speech during the 1964 presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater “The Time For Choosing”, also known as “The Speech”, which launched Reagan into national stature. He wrote the speech himself; he knows how to use words and construct excellent compositions (I really suggest you go check out his other speeches and quotes).

 

I edited the video myself, added some quotes and a Bible verse at the end. This video is set to the track called “Arrival to Earth” from Transformers (2007) by Steve Jablonsky. I do not own the music or the footage, all properties belong to their respectful owners.]

Memories of My America


My wife and I are grandparent raising three over our grandchildren. The children of my wife’s youngest. We were a Brady Bunch family. Our 1990 marriage united 3 kids from her previous marriage and 2 kids from my previous marriage.

 

The other day I overheard a conversation between our 18 year old grandson (still living at home) and my wife. To be honest I can’t remember the context of their conversation because I really wasn’t paying close attention. As a part of that conversation I heard my wife say something along the lines that the 18 year old would appreciate possessions he would have earned more than a hand out. This is the point my ears began to pay attention awaiting his response.

 

He responded (to my best recollection), “Grandma, I don’t believe that is true because I appreciate what is given to me more than what I pay for.”

 

I shook my head in silent sadness. His response means I failed him as he is about to embark on adulthood.

 

Justin Smith submission on his Baby-Boomer experience evoked the sad recent memory with my grandson and also took me back to my own Baby-Boomer youth where most Americans of that era also learned a good American work ethic. I won’t go into mine. Definitely if you are a Baby-Boomer, you appreciate Justin’s memory. If you are a post-Baby-Boomer generation you should read and comprehend the value of a good work ethic.

Memories of My America

 

Farmer, his John Deere & his Dog

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 7/3/2020 2:40 PM

 

I spent so many great days, from my early childhood on, roaming farmlands with my loyal dog, Otto, playing with the farm animals and learning to appreciate all this wonderful world had to offer.

 

And it wasn’t all play, either.

 

My father was posted for a couple of years at Ft Leonard Wood in Missouri, and he found us a nice little house way out in what many would call the “boonies” far from the fort, in the town of Dixon. But it was heaven for a young boy with his head filled with thoughts of adventure, who was already well-versed in Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.

 

Outside of my own chores at home, in the summers, as young boys were want to do, I sought to make a dollar or two in order to gain my own spending money, for family outings and such. I mowed yards and just the usual grunt work that some of the older neighbors couldn’t do any longer.

 

Early the first summer, I met an elderly couple that lived on the far edge of town. I was about twelve at the time, and the old couple, who I simply knew as Mr. and Mrs. Whittaker, looked ancient to me. I was soon to discover that they were 96 and 97 at the time. I enjoyed stopping by in the hot Missouri afternoons whenever I’d see them out, Mrs. Whittaker wearing her wide-brimmed straw hat to shade from what were some days unbearably hot days indeed — it was actually unseasonably hot that year. And yet, each day they’d be out in their “garden” working.

 

It wasn’t long before I became a constant at their small spread, doing whatever they needed, just because I knew they needed the help, never asking for pay.

 

That last summer, I was about three months into my 13th year on this earth and Mr. Whittaker said he had need of me. He guided me to an old plow and asked me if I knew how to use one. I told him I had often weeded my GranMa Ila’s garden with a hoe, but had never used a plow, although I was familiar with how the process went. He continued, allowing that it was simple enough, demonstrating for a few minutes.

 

Push Plow

 

It wasn’t a horse-drawn plow. It was a plow with a wheel on the front and designed to be used by people too poor to afford a horse, back when people still used horses to run their furrows. He just wanted me to run the furrows between his corn rows to take out the weeds and carry buckets of water to irrigate the corn … three acres of corn. For a dollar an hour, which sounded like a lot of money to a 13 year old in 1970, until my hands hit the handles and I struggled to churn the sunbaked hardened Missouri soil.

 

Corn Field

 

I instantly wondered if I hadn’t bit off more than I could chew, but being my father’s son, the son of a man who despised quitters almost as much as cowards, I ducked my head and plowed on, turning the soil and then going back and watering the corn when the rains were sparse, using a short water hose for the closest rows and buckets for the rest …. back and forth … and back and forth. Three acres may not sound like much, but it seemed like a hundred to me, by the time it came to harvest the corn.

 

I had to return to school before harvest time, but some of their kin came by to shuck and bundle the corn, that September.

 

It was hard work seeing how it was all done by hand, but these were people used to doing EVERYTHING by hand, and that experience taught me a great lesson. I was never so proud as to have been given the responsibility of caring for their corn, to be trusted to do what was asked of me. My own parents had me well on my way towards a great work ethic before that summer, but that experience made me appreciate a job well done and helping others.

 

I celebrated their 97th and 98th birthdays with them, and then we were off to another post, and back home to Tennessee.

 

A few years later, at eighteen, I spent the summer harvesting winter wheat, in Springfield, Colorado, while visiting my little GranMa Mamie, learning to drive a fancy, 12-gear Case tractor. Another cherished memory.

 

12-gear Case tractor

 

I only tell You of this as I am getting some age on me now, and I tend to find myself reminiscing of days gone by, as I see so many aimless, lazy, unproductive children scattered all about our society, in virtually any place one cares to mention. So many never so much as set foot from their house, unless it’s for some mindless pursuit, and the remainder of their time is spent glued to some online game.

 

I look at them and I can’t picture a one of them willing to help their fellow neighbor, much less working day in day out for hours upon hours to bring in a crop of any sort. I look at them on the whole and it puts fear in me for this nation, especially as we see what so many have become in their young adult years, as those who succumbed to the indoctrination and propaganda in the streets have become the nation’s destroyers.

 

Never was there any more truth set forth for all men to pay heed and take notice of than those of Proverbs 16: 27-29:

 

Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.[a]

An evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends.

Wickedness loves company—and leads others into sin.”

 

American families aren’t doing their children any real favors by coddling them and allowing them to lay about for too many days on end, without something constructive put in front of them to pursue. They should be given the comforts of a good home and all that comes with it, but so too must they be taught from an early age the value of good honest work, a good day’s labor for a good day’s pay and the sense of pride that one achieves from seeing a job well done, a job they completed on their own.

 

We’ve advanced beyond our wildest imagination in areas of technology, but not so much in the social graces and just being good people. If anything, our society has been driven backwards with the constant attacks on God and Family that those callous anti-American interlopers and the hate-America first crowd have mounted on this country I love so well, time and again, from the early 1900s to the present. We can do better, but not with another ideology and its supporters doing everything within their power to end traditional America, all in the name of getting something for nothing, as though they are owed a living from the sweat of someone else’s brow, just by their mere existence.

 

I miss the America I grew up knowing and loving.

Mt. Rushmore Trump Speech. Freedom Fireworks & MSM Lies


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Posted July 4, 2020

 

Since I am fairly convinced the Mainstream Media either failed to show the Trump speech at Mt. Rushmore or selectively vilified the speech with twisted lies, I am showing the entire Independence celebration speech given on July 3 at the foot of Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota.

 

THEN I am showing the video (I recommend FULL SCREEN) of the Mt Rushmore fireworks unsurprisingly vilified by the MSM. If you live in a Dem Party totalitarian location where COVID-propaganda cancelled fireworks, you can watch the Mt. Rushmore Freedom Fireworks.

 

THEN I’m cross posting a MeWe group that borrows from Breitbart exposing MSM lies

U.S. President Donald Trump criticized protesters who have been trying to tear down various statues of Confederate leaders and other historical figures during a speech at Mount Rushmore on Friday evening.

 

The president warned that demonstrations over racial inequality in American society threatened the foundations of the U.S. political system, calling it a “left-wing cultural revolution” designed to “overthrow the American revolution,” and claimed that children were being taught in school to hate the country.

 

An estimated 7,500 people were in attendance, many packed into an amphitheatre despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with attendees being offered masks but many not wearing them.

 

Trump also announced he would sign an executive order to establish a “national garden of American heroes” filled with statues of notable historically significant figures. The garden is expected to include Wilbur and Orville Wright, Jackie Robinson, – the first African-American to play Major League Baseball, Harriet Tubman – an abolitionist known for rescuing approximately 70 enslaved people using a network of anti-slavery activists known as the “Underground Railroad”, and former Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia.

Lies deceit and half-truths they spew against our country. They are the main characters attacking our country backed by the DEMOCRATS in their lust for control. They would see this country burn if they can’t REGAIN  power. We all know that is not the DEMOCRATIC  way, it’s the Saul Alinsky way and the Democrats are knee deep into their playbook. Say the word President Trump and will rid this country of these haters of freedom. These people have no idea of the bear their poking.

God Bless this great country and this President who would make a stand on behalf of the people.

 

CNN Laments ‘Dark History of Mount Rushmore’s Sculpture’ Ahead of Independence Day Celebration

 

HANNAH BLEAU 3 Jul 2020

[Breitbart]

CNN joined the establishment media effort to “cancel” Mount Rushmore, lamenting the “dark history” of the sculpture and criticizing President Trump — who is set to deliver a speech at the historic landmark Friday night —  for defending “racist monuments.”

“The dark history of Mount Rushmore’s sculpture itself takes center stage with Trump’s visit,” CNN’s Betsy Klein wrote in a preview of the event not labeled as an opinion piece.

 

“The President, who has stoked racial animus since he first entered the political arena, has moved to defend racist monuments in the face of nationwide protests over the treatment of Black Americans,” Klein continued, noting that Friday’s Independence Day celebration was planned prior to the widespread civil unrest.

CNN’s grievances appear to be in lockstep with the New York Times, which published an article this week highlighting controversies with the historic landmark — from its location on “Indigenous land,” to the sculptor’s purported ties to white supremacy, to the presidents depicted on the American icon itself.

Like the Times, CNN quoted Nick Tilsen, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe and leader of the Indigenous activist group NDN Collective, who ultimately wants the monument closed and the land given to Indigenous people:

 

Indigenous people and my ancestors fought and died, and gave their lives to protect the sacred land, and to blow up a mountain and put the faces of four White men who were colonizers who committed genocide against Indigenous people — the fact that we don’t, as Americans, think of that as an absolute outrage is ridiculous.

 

Klein noted that two of the presidents on the landmark were slave owners and effectively dismissed Abraham Lincoln, despite his historic role in signing the Emancipation Proclamation:

 

Two of the four presidents carved into the mountain in South Dakota, Washington and Jefferson, were slave owners. And though Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Tilsen notes that his legacy, for Native Americans, is a dark one. He approved the executions of 38 Dakota natives in Mankato, Minnesota (though he commuted the sentences of hundreds of others in the same incident).

Lincoln, Tilsen said, “was a mass murderer, a colonizer — ordered the biggest mass hanging in the history of the nation. So he was not one of our heroes. He’s not somebody — he was an enemy of our people, of Indigenous people, and it’s important that we have a reckoning with the true history of this nation.”

 

Klein also mentioned the sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, who had been tasked with Stone Mountain’s Confederate Memorial Carving — the “largest high relief sculpture in the world” depicting Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee, and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson.

“Before Mount Rushmore was even considered, Borglum was working on Stone Mountain, Georgia, a Confederate memorial,” said Tom Griffith, Mount Rushmore Society board member.

“I think more than the ideology, but more practically, he was affiliated with the Klan to raise money for this Confederate memorial,” he told CNN.

CNN went one step further than the Times, also mentioning the “environmental risk” of holding an Independence Day celebration at the landmark:

 

Pine beetle infestations in nearby forests were the cause of concern when the fireworks were discontinued. These infestations can kill trees, which increases their flammability risk and, in turn, poses a potential wildfire hazard. Fireworks increased the risk that a fire would ignite.

 

The efforts to effectively cancel Mount Rushmore come as activists demand the removal of historic monuments and statues in cities nationwide in the name of racial and social justice. Notably, several of the monuments activists have targeted are unrelated to the Confederacy. Vandals in Charlotte, North Carolina, targeted a World War II memorial while demonstrators in Madison, Wisconsin, toppled a statue of Col. Hans Christian Heg — an immigrant who died fighting against slavery.

South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (R) has defended Mount Rushmore, calling it a symbol of “American exceptionalism” — not of “white supremacy.”

“Each of the presidents were picked for a specific reason,” Ravnsborg told Fox & Friends on Friday. “President Washington, for obviously the birth of our nation, President Jefferson for the growth of our nation, President Lincoln for the development of our nation, and Teddy Roosevelt for the preservation of our nation.”

“This is a symbol of American exceptionalism, and I believe that there’s no way of white supremacy,” he continued.

“That obviously has been a dispute over the years since the time about 1876,” Ravnsborg said of claims of America stealing native land. “But that case has actually been litigated to the United States Supreme Court.”

“We are sympathetic to their feelings on the issue, but I do believe that it was not meant to desecrate the land but to honor America and honor our state of South Dakota,” he added.

Despite the mounting complaints, the Independence Day event is slated to kick-off Friday night. Roughly 7,500 are expected to attend the festivities, which will feature fireworks, a flyover, and remarks from the president.

 

If There Is a Neocon Warning – Pay Attention


John R. Houk

© June 26, 2019

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) in conjunction with the Think Tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) has put together a report measuring Russia’s potential threat to American interests today.

 

In the Bush II Presidential years the AEI had a Neoconservative reputation in its policy advocacy. In this day and age Neocons are pretty much castigated by the American Left and American Right.

 

On a personal level I have been an admirer of Neoconservatism’s American Exceptionalism and a Foreign Policy based on military strength. Traditional Conservatives (sometimes called Paleocons) view this kind of aggressive Foreign Policy as a Big Government budget destroyer. There are those the American Left would label as the racist Right who castigate Neocons as ex-Communist Jews that can’t be trusted.

 

There is a large amount of truth to the “ex-Communist” association since a large number of early Neocon proponents were indeed Communists or at least Marxist sympathizers, BUT these rebels against Communism woke up to the ideological failures. Socialism (and yes this includes National Socialism aka Nazism) and varieties of Marxism have led to much of history’s oppressive regimes and the genocide of huge groups of human beings.

 

However, to label a “Communist” a “Jew” is a bit of an oxymoron. Communists are anti-religion atheists by nature and a good Jew practices the religious faith of Judaism. It is true there are people of a Jewish heritage that have repudiated the religious tenets of Judaism and embraced Marxist-Communist ideology. If one embraces Communism one rejects religion. That would make a Jew who became a Communist an ex-Jew. Incidentally, a person of Christian heritage, Islamic heritage, Buddhist heritage or any religious heritage who embraces Communism have rejected their religious heritage and have become an ex-whatever heritage.

 

Condemning all Jews because a few rejected their religious heritage should logically lead to the same condemnation of other people rejecting their religious heritage. I doubt Jew-haters follow that logic since one rarely hears the label that all Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, etc. are evil because a few accept atheistic One World Government Communism. Hence the hypocrisy of hating Jews because of Communism is just plain racism. (Muslims hate Jews because their revered writings tell them to hate Jews [Percentages]. That’s a whole different kind of racism. One sees that kind of racism among idiot Christians who believe all Jews are responsible for killing Jesus when it was a secret night tribunal of Jewish leaders fearing a rebellion would displace status among their Roman overlords. Human fear and jealousy got Jesus Crucified. God’s love Resurrected the Son of God which offers Saving Redemption to ALL who Believe in the Risen Savior – to the Jew first then to the non-Jew.)

 

The American Left deride the Neocons’ American Exceptionalism as nationalistic anti-globalist rejectors of Socialism/Marxism.

 

Have Neocons made mistakes? DEFINITELY! The principle of nation-building based on American Republic Representative-Democracy only works in cultures amenable to the Western heritage. This unfortunate discovery became evident in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Those cultures have been brainwashed into Islamic thought for too long for the populace to understand let alone accept Western Representative Democracy.

 

When Neocons have a warning about Russia in relation to American National Interests and National Security the benefit of the USA is what is in mind.

CONFRONTING THE RUSSIAN CHALLENGE

 

Russian Soldier

 

By Frederick W. KaganNataliya Bugayova, and Jennifer Cafarella

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (PDF)

Institute for the Study of War

[Institute for the Study of War (ISW) and Critical Threats Project (CTP) at the American Enterprise Institute]

June 2019

 

Russia poses a significant threat to the United States and its allies for which the West is not ready.  The West must act urgently to meet this threat without exaggerating it.  Russia today does not have the military strength of the Soviet Union. It is a poor state with an economy roughly the size of Canada’s, a population less than half that of the U.S., and demographic trends indicating that it will lose strength over time.  It is not a conventional military near-peer nor will it become so.  Its unconventional warfare and information operations pose daunting but not insuperable challenges.  The U.S. and its allies must develop a coherent global approach to meeting and transcending the Russian challenge.

 

[Download the full report here and the Executive Summary here.]

 

The Russian Threat

 

President Vladimir Putin has invaded two of his neighbors, Georgia and Ukraine, partly to stop them from aligning with NATO and the West.  He has also illegally annexed territory from both those states. He has established a military base in the eastern Mediterranean that he uses to interfere with, shape, and restrict the operations of the U.S. and the anti-ISIS coalition.  He has given cover to Bashar al Assad’s use of chemical weapons, and Russian agents have used military-grade chemical weapons in assassination attempts in Great Britain.  Russia has threatened to use nuclear weapons, even in regional and local conflicts. And Moscow has interfered in elections and domestic political discourse in the U.S. and Europe.

 

The Russian threat’s effectiveness results mainly from the West’s weaknesses.  NATO’s European members are not meeting their full commitments to the alliance to maintain the fighting power needed to deter and defeat the emerging challenge from Moscow. Increasing political polarization and the erosion of trust by Western peoples in their governments creates vulnerabilities that the Kremlin has adroitly exploited.

 

Moscow’s success in manipulating Western perceptions of and reactions to its activities has fueled the development of an approach to warfare that the West finds difficult to understand, let alone counter.  Shaping the information space is the primary effort to which Russian military operations, even conventional military operations, are frequently subordinated in this way of war.  Russia obfuscates its activities and confuses the discussion so that many people throw up their hands and say simply, “Who knows if the Russians really did that?  Who knows if it was legal?”—thus paralyzing the West’s responses.

 

Putin’s Program

 

Putin is not simply an opportunistic predator.  Putin and the major institutions of the Russian Federation have a program as coherent as that of any Western leader.  Putin enunciates his objectives in major speeches, and his ministers generate detailed formal expositions of Russia’s military and diplomatic aims and its efforts and the methods and resources it uses to pursue them.  These statements cohere with the actions of Russian officials and military units on the ground.  The common perception that he is opportunistic arises from the way that the Kremlin sets conditions to achieve these objectives in advance. Putin closely monitors the domestic and international situation and decides to execute plans when and if conditions require and favor the Kremlin. The aims of Russian policy can be distilled into the following:

 

Domestic Objectives

 

Putin is an autocrat who seeks to retain control of his state and the succession.  He seeks to keep his power circle content, maintain his own popularity, suppress domestic political opposition in the name of blocking a “color revolution” he falsely accuses the West of preparing, and expand the Russian economy.

 

Putin has not fixed the economy, which remains corrupt, inefficient, and dependent on petrochemical and mineral exports.  He has focused instead on ending the international sanctions regime to obtain the cash, expertise, and technology he needs.  Information operations and hybrid warfare undertakings in Europe are heavily aimed at this objective.

 

External Objectives

 

Putin’s foreign policy aims are clear: end American dominance and the “unipolar” world order, restore “multipolarity,” and reestablish Russia as a global power and broker.  He identifies NATO as an adversary and a threat and seeks to negate it.  He aims to break Western unity, establish Russian suzerainty over the former Soviet States, and regain a global footprint.

 

Putin works to break Western unity by invalidating the collective defense provision of the North Atlantic Treaty (Article 5), weakening the European Union, and destroying the faith of Western societies in their governments.

 

He is reestablishing a global military footprint similar in extent the Soviet Union’s, but with different aims. He is neither advancing an ideology, nor establishing bases from which to project conventional military power on a large scale.  He aims rather to constrain and shape America’s actions using small numbers of troops and agents along with advanced anti-air and anti-shipping systems.

 

Recommendations

 

A sound U.S. grand strategic approach to Russia:

 

  • Aims to achieve core American national security objectives positively rather than to react defensively to Russian actions;

 

  • Holistically addresses all U.S. interests globally as they relate to Russia rather than considering them theater-by-theater;

 

  • Does not trade core American national security interests in one theater for those in another, or sacrifice one vital interest for another;

 

  • Achieves American objectives by means short of war if at all possible;

 

  • Deters nuclear war, the use of any nuclear weapons, and other Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD);

 

  • Accepts the risk of conventional conflict with Russia while seeking to avoid it and to control escalation, while also ensuring that American forces will prevail at any escalation level;

 

  • Contests Russian information operations and hybrid warfare undertakings; and

 

  • Extends American protection and deterrence to U.S. allies in NATO and outside of NATO.

 

Such an approach involves four principal lines of effort.

 

Constrain Putin’s Resources.  Russia uses hybrid warfare approaches because of its relative poverty and inability to field large and modern military systems that could challenge the U.S. and NATO symmetrically.  Lifting or reducing the current sanctions regime or otherwise facilitating Russia’s access to wealth and technology could give Putin the resources he needs to mount a much more significant conventional threat—an aim he had been pursuing in the early 2000s when high oil prices and no sanctions made it seem possible.

 

Disrupt Hybrid Operations.  Identifying, exposing, and disrupting hybrid operations is a feasible, if difficult, undertaking.  New structures in the U.S. military, State Department, and possibly National Security Council Staff are likely needed to:

 

  1. Coordinate efforts to identify and understand hybrid operations in preparation and underway;

 

  1. Develop recommendations for action against hybrid operations that the U.S. government has identified but are not yet publicly known;

 

  1. Respond to the unexpected third-party exposure of hybrid operations whether the U.S. government knew about the operations or not;

 

  1. Identify in advance the specific campaign and strategic objectives that should be pursued when the U.S. government deliberately exposes a particular hybrid operation or when third parties expose hybrid operations of a certain type in a certain area;

 

  1. Shape the U.S. government response, particularly in the information space, to drive the blowback effects of the exposure of a particular hybrid operation toward achieving those identified objectives; and

 

  1. Learn lessons from past and current counter-hybrid operations undertakings, improve techniques, and prepare for future evolutions of Russian approaches in coordination with allies and partners.

 

The U.S. should also develop a counter-information operations approach that uses only truth against Russian narratives aimed at sowing discord within the West and at undermining the legitimacy of Western governments.

 

Delegitimize Putin as a Mediator and Convener.  Recognition as one of the poles of a multipolar world order is vital to Putin.  It is part of the greatness he promises the Russian people in return for taking their liberty.  Getting a “seat at the table” of Western-led endeavors is insufficient for him because he seeks to transform the international system fundamentally.  He finds the very language of being offered a seat at the West’s table patronizing.

 

He has gained much more legitimacy as an international partner in Syria and Ukraine than his behavior warrants.  He benefits from the continuous desire of Western leaders to believe that Moscow will help them out of their own problems if only it is approached in the right way.

 

The U.S. and its allies must instead recognize that Putin is a self-declared adversary who seeks to weaken, divide, and harm them—never to strengthen or help them.  He has made clear in word and deed that his interests are antithetical to the West’s.  The West should therefore stop treating him as a potential partner, but instead require him to demonstrate that he can and will act to advance rather than damage the West’s interests before engaging with him at high levels.

 

The West must not trade interests in one region for Putin’s help in another, even if there is reason to believe that he would actually be helpful.  Those working on American policy in Syria and the Levant must recognize that the U.S. cannot afford to subordinate its global Russia policy to pursue limited interests, however important, within the Middle East.  Recognizing Putin as a mediator or convener in Syria—to constrain Iran’s activities in the south of that country, for example—is too high a price tag to pay for undermining a coherent global approach to the Russian threat.  Granting him credibility in that role there enhances his credibility in his self-proclaimed role as a mediator rather than belligerent in Ukraine.  The tradeoff of interests is unacceptable.

 

Nor should the U.S. engage with Putin about Ukraine until he has committed publicly in word and deed to what should be the minimum non-negotiable Western demand—the recognition of the full sovereignty of all the former Soviet states, specifically including Ukraine, in their borders as of the dates of their admission as independent countries to the United Nations, and the formal renunciation (including the repealing of relevant Russian legislation) of any right to interfere in the internal affairs of those states.

 

Defend NATO.  The increased Russian threat requires increased efforts to defend NATO against both conventional and hybrid threats.  All NATO members must meet their commitments to defense spending targets—and should be prepared to go beyond those commitments to field the forces necessary to defend themselves and other alliance members.  The Russian base in Syria poses a threat to Western operations in the Middle East that are essential to protecting our own citizens and security against terrorist threats and Iran.  Neither the U.S. nor NATO is postured to protect the Mediterranean or fight for access to the Middle East through the eastern Mediterranean. NATO must now prepare to field and deploy additional forces to ensure that it can win that fight.

 

The West should also remove as much ambiguity as possible from the NATO commitment to defend member states threatened by hybrid warfare.  The 2018 Brussels Declaration affirming the alliance’s intention to defend member states attacked by hybrid warfare was a good start.  The U.S. and other NATO states with stronger militaries should go further by declaring that they will come to the aid of a member state attacked by conventional or hybrid means regardless of whether Article 5 is formally activated, creating a pre-emptive coalition of the willing to deter Russian aggression.

 

Bilateral Negotiations.  Recognizing that Russia is a self-defined adversary and threat does not preclude direct negotiations.  The U.S. negotiated several arms control treaties with the Soviet Union and has negotiated with other self-defined enemies as well.  It should retain open channels of communication and a willingness to work together with Russia on bilateral areas in which real and verifiable agreement is possible, even while refusing to grant legitimacy to Russian intervention in conflicts beyond its borders.  Such areas could include strategic nuclear weapons, cyber operations, interference in elections, the Intermediate Nuclear Forces treaty, and other matters related to direct Russo-American tensions and concerns.  There is little likelihood of any negotiation yielding fruit at this point, but there is no need to refuse to talk with Russia on these and similar issues in hopes of laying the groundwork for more successful discussions in the future.

Embrace In God We Trust

Firmly Believe that America has a Purpose

 

By Justin Smith

Posted March 6, 2019 1:55 PM

Facebook Group:  Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists

 

In the beginning, we embraced In God We Trust. But we’ve allowed ourselves to become distracted bythe worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things.” Not only has our nation been on a lengthy path of turning away from God, due to half the nation forgetting our purpose, Conservatives and Christians have allowed this course due to their own apathy, complacency and fatalistic acceptance.

 

I firmly believe that America has a purpose. The purpose of leading the world toward what’s good, but we can’t fulfill that purpose so long as half the nation sides with Evil and Satan and every deceit, deception, perversion and deviancy that goes against God and the Word.

 

One need not be Christian to follow its commandments as a simple and effective way to lead a good, clean life and understand that by so doing, all society reaps the benefit.

 

But for one’s own salvation, one should consider following the TRUTH as offered by Our Lord And Savior Jesus Christ and accept His Salvation and one’s redemption.

 

We can still be the beacon of hope for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for the world, if only all America returns to Her Founding Principles and the Original Intent of the Founders to create the most Liberty for all Americans, if only America returns to God and a truly moral society.

 

Maybe it will take a miracle to get there. We sure need one right now.

 

Otherwise, the course we’re on is taking us straight over the cliff and headlong into an abyss of massive civil strife and the high likelihood of civil war.

 

Pray for each other and Your Families and Pray for Our Beloved America.

Justin Smith nails the sentiment on how real Americans must stand with President Trump even if he is not the perfect Conservative the Conservative-minded voting base that made him POTUS views flaws.

Dangerous Times

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/19/2017 7:03 PM

 

I was a “Never Trump” guy for a matter of only days, during the Republican primary for many good reasons, that remain true and valid today. But DAMN. Come on people. All of you are out there proclaiming your Conservative and Christian principles and your love for America, but you are sitting quietly by, even now, and watching Her be destroyed before your very eyes. Conservative principles are great. I’m every bit as conservative as any of you, probably more so, however, if you really need this explained to you, here goes.

 

98% of all news reports on Trump over the past three months, according to a recent Harvard study, have been negative [Blog Editor: Actually, depending on the news outlet the percentage ranges from 80% to 98% being the worst].

 

What does this tell You?

 

Concerning the Trump-Russia Scandal, initially beginning as a counter-intelligence investigation into Russia hacking the election, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE OF “COLLUSION” between Trump and the Russians. Aside from this fact, he is the President and he is empowered to speak to foreign heads of State on any issue by right of being Our President; if you seek real collusion, just look at when Obama was caught on an open mike, on March 26th 2012, telling the Russian President to wait until after the election, and he could “be more flexible”. Just look at Hillary Clinton’s deals to give away American uranium resources to Russia, as Secretary of State [Blog Editor: See how the Leftist MSM twist the truth into a lie with semantic spin moves].

 

Still Trump was acting accordingly, when he fired FBI Director Comey, because Comey was compromised from his affiliations with Clinton; he accepted $6 million from the Clinton Foundation, when he was CEO of Lockheed, and he mishandled the Clinton investigation into her handling of Top Secret and Classified information, trying to play both sides of the fence. Trump had to fire him. [Blog Editor: See HERE, HERE & HERE]

If James Comey believed President Trump was really trying to influence his investigation into Gen. Michael Flynn, when the President asked if he “could let it go”, then why did hid he wait three months to bring it up, and only after he was fired? Why is this memo, yet to be seen, just now being mentioned? If this memo exists, then James Comey’s ethical behavior once again comes under scrutiny. [Blog Editor: Justin’s wondering is right on the money! See HERE]

 

Comey evidently didn’t really believe that President Trump was trying to obstruct justice at the time. If he did, he was duty bound by law to report the conversation immediately to the House Senate Intelligence Committee.

 

Pragmatist, liberal Democrat, conman, convert to conservatism, Great American. Put any label you choose, however true or untrue it may be, on President Donald J Trump. The reality remains that President Trump has pursued more conservative items in his first 100 days than many “Never Trump” proponents suggested he would, and he saved the Supreme Court from going completely fascist. And I believe him to be a Fine American truly working to save this Exceptional America of Ours.

 

I’m not debating the pros and cons of what he’s done. I will say, that attempting to present a GOP healthcare bill and the trillion-dollar budget shouldn’t have occurred.

 

What many seem to miss is this. Trump has given the GOP both Houses of Congress under the Republican platform and a Republican nominated U.S. President, and this can act as a respite from the transformation of the nation into a total authoritarian socialist country in which citizens answer to government bureaucrats; this is where Obama and the Progressive commies were taking us.

 

Remember Trump’s great words only days ago at Liberty University. He said, “In America we don’t worship government, we worship God.” These words will flow throughout history, however, they also solidified the D.C. Establishment’s view that Trump is dangerous. And immediately afterwards, all manner of hell broke loose in the Left Wing media.

 

Now in desperation, the Democrats refuse to release their power and give up any gains under Obama, while America hears people such as Representatives Al Green (D-TX), Maxine Waters (D-CA) and prominent Democrat former Rep. Tom Perriello call for President Trump’s impeachment. We are seeing an inner struggle, that is nothing short of a coup attempt by Deep State bureaucrats in the FBI, CIA and NSA, “anonymous” leakers, the Leftist Commies in the “mainstream” media and their Progressive allies in both parties, as well as their strong-arm thugs in the streets. This is a total complete attempt to takeover, a very real coup attempt.

 

The Democrats might proceed with attempts to arrive at impeachment, but such proceedings cannot even reach the floor of the Senate without the Senate Majority Leader’s approval. McConnell hates Trump, but even he knows the proof of evidence has to be very solid, before moving for impeachment. Aside from all this, 25 Republicans would have to cross over and join the Democrats. That isn’t happening anytime soon, not without more substantial evidence.

 

Something that doesn’t exist cannot be found, no matter how much the Democrats wish their Lie to become the Truth.

 

Yes, Trump should survive impeachment attempts, but he and his administration will remain under constant attack. In order to minimize the efforts of the Progressive Democrat Communists, Trump must immediately embark on a purge of all Obama bureaucratic holdovers and replace them with solid Conservatives, Christians and Constitutional-minded Patriotic Americans.

 

Keep your precious principles, but don’t attack the Republican President, regardless of his lack of conservative credentials, and don’t inadvertently or willingly join in the clamor for impeachment, when there is absolutely zero grounds for it, and it is completely unwarranted. Do not aid this coup.

 

If you and other Republicans jump on this pile of manufactured Democratic manure, you are setting in motion a terrible precedent for the future and possibly dooming America to becoming just like the banana republics where the” rule of law” means little and men answer to dictators, rather than the State answering to their citizens. You and your ilk are aiding in the destruction of our Republic.

 

Trump is America’s Man, but only if You’re one of the people who want out from under the Globalists and the Establishment DC fascists. If this all out assault on the Trump administration and President Trump continues, the path ahead looks very much like another Civil War brewing. Whether America on the whole understands just how much so, these are the most dangerous times America has ever witnessed in my sixty years of sunrises. Don’t let the sun set on Our Republic.

Memo to the “progressive” Democratic Takers


Intro to ‘Memo to the “progressive” Democratic Takers

By Justin O. Smith

John R. Houk, Editor

Posted 5/18/17

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Hitler, Mao, Stalin & Pol Pot

 

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

Memo to the “progressive” Democratic Takers

To ALL Democrats and Socialists out there:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

May God Bless America for All Eternity.

WARNING!!! You are about to hear Trump’s vulgar hot mike video! Inexcusable womanizing profanity – then read my thoughts.

 

VIDEO: Trump Caught on Hot Mic Bragging About Sexual Exploits: ‘Grab ’em by the P*ssy’

 

Posted by Only Hilarious

Published on Oct 7, 2016

 

The Leftist media has finally dug some dirt on Donald’s past 20-years ago that most voters were aware of by suspicion anyway. Mr. Trump is caught on tape exposing himself as a womanizing sexist in the most vulgar of terms.

 

That makes people like me who supported Senator Ted Cruz for the POTUS nomination go to the expression: What the devil were you thinking voting for The Donald in the Primaries over Cruz?!

 

If Trump refuses to drop out because of his never quit ethic, the reality is we #NeverHillary voters are still stuck with him. In all honesty if Trump doesn’t drop out I’m still voting for him because of the disaster a President Hillary Clinton would be for the future of America’s legacy of Original Intent Constitutionalism!

 

Crooked Hillary will continue her history of lying about crimes and covering up her own husband’s womanizing predator actions AND continue Obama’s Left Wing transformation of America away the Christian oriented culture that has made the USA that shining beacon on a hill of true American Exceptionalism.

 

The American Left’s concept of exceptionalism is based on dangerous Multiculturalism and depreciating the effects of Christian moralist to increase the moral relativism of Secular Humanism. Multiculturalism and Secular Humanism erodes the 1st Amendment guarantees of Religious Liberty for Christians. Ironically Multiculturalism-Secular Humanism will actually support the intolerance of Islam to further de-Christianize America. Not that these idiotic Leftists agree with Islam but rather they wittingly or unwittingly view the anti-Christian religious aspects as a tool to remove the Christian toe-hold on American culture.

 

A weakened Christian ethic liberates the Homosexual agenda and other moral relativistic trends that force Biblical Christians to do business with moral reprobates such as ungodly homosexualism, pornographers, anti-Christian/Antisemitic Muslims and a probable numerous amount of other issues that will affect the Religious Liberty of Christians.

 

Because of this reality of a Crooked Hillary counter-culture transformation, the Republican/Conservative quickness to repudiate Trump from something he said or even believed TWENTY-FREAKING-YEARS-AGO is incredibly rash.

 

Frankly I would be pleased if Donald Trump dropped out because of the vocal backlash and Left Stream Media influence in hating Trump and sanctifying Crooked Hillary. BUT if Trump refuses to drop out, dear God in Heaven America, we still have to stop a Crooked Hillary victory for the sake of America’s future to remain great and exceptional.

DNC Leftists Shout ‘No More War’

 

When the DNC Leftists were shouting “No more war” to Leon Panetta & a U.S. General vainly trying to inspire Patriotism among the Dems, this Reagan video of peace through strength should have been shown.

“Now let’s set the record straight. There’s no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there’s only one guaranteed way you can have peace—and you can have it in the next second—surrender.

Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand—the ultimatum. And what then—when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we’re retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he’d rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us.

You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits—not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.
