A Freedom Outpost Bundy Update


Intro by John R. Houk

Whenever I run into some info about the government persecution of ranchers that stood with the Bundy family against Federal government (largely the Bureau of Land Management – BLM) intrusion to enforce bureaucratic rules that act as laws that benefit Eco-Marxists desires over private property and private business.

 

Here is a brief synopsis of the reasons that Cliven Bundy decided to withstand the Law created by the BLM and not Congress from my last post on this situation – “Supporting Bundys in Trials & Tribulations”:

 

A few facts about the Cliven Bundy and the BLM incident

 

For some time, the Bundy’s have owned cattle that have grazed in the Bunkerville, NV area.  Since his cattle grazed on federal land, he paid grazing fees to the federal government. In 1993, the local grazing rules changed when a number of things came together; the Desert tortoise became protected under the species act, and the Fish and Wildlife Service determined that this was one of the areas critical to their long-term survival. Grazing rules were also changed in order to accommodate restoration needed from years of overgrazing and recent fires. These new rules would include Bundy having to reduce his number of cattle. Refusing to comply, he decided to “fire” the BLM, and stop paying grazing fees, while continuing to use federal lands for his cattle to graze. Not only did he not reduce his cattle count, but actually increased them over time.

 

In this latest update that I have discovered, the Freedom Outpost reports the 1/3 of Idaho State Senators and Representatives are urging Attorney General Jeff Sessions to stop the DOJ led persecution – er I mean – prosecution of the Bundy Ranch Standoff largely due to a fair amount of the defendants are experiencing second and third retrials after hung juries.

 

The judicial persecution is happening in the Bundy family’s home State of Nevada. Apparently these Idaho legislators are making views known to AG Sessions is because of the defendants are from Idaho.

 

Here is the Freedom Outpost update.

1/3 of Idaho Reps Call on AG Sessions to Back Off Bundy Ranch Case: This Is “Disrespect for the Rule of Law & the Jury System”

 

By TIM BROWN 

SEPTEMBER 3, 2017

Freedom Outpost

 

Last Friday, following a meeting of Tier 1 and Tier 3 Bundy Ranch defendants in court with Judge Gloria Navarro, a trial date was set for October 10.  That trial will include Eric Parker and Stephen Drexler, who have already been tried twice with hung juries and non-guilty verdicts.  Now, at least a third of Idaho representatives are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to put an end to the badgering of these men with trial after trial, a clear violation of the Fifth Amendment’s protections against Double Jeopardy (and yes, I know the “legaleze” about mistrials, but the fact of the matter is that under that thinking, one could try someone indefinitely).

 

Deb Jordan, co-host of the Pete Santilli Show, shared the story of what the outcome of the meeting was with me on Friday’s Sons of Liberty Radio Show.  Eric and his wife Andrea also joined us for the show.  You can download that episode by clicking here.

 

Since then, one-third of the representatives of Idaho, the state in which Parker and Drexler live, penned a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for him relax the pursuit by Nevada prosecutors against four Idahoans who are charged or have been convicted in the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff in Nevada.

 

The letter was authored by State Rep. Dorothy Moon (R-Stanley) and signed by 24 Idaho representatives from the House and Senate last Tuesday stating, “We believe that the decision by the current U.S. attorney to Nevada to prosecute these men a third time represents disrespect for the rule of law and the jury system.”

 

The four men these representatives are standing up for are Ammon Bundy, of Emmett; Eric Parker, of Hailey; Scott Drexler, of Challis; and Todd Engel, of Boundary County.

 

“We are tasked with the responsibility to protect our citizens’ constitutional rights,” the letter stated, noting the Idaho Legislatures has a “high respect for the rule of law.”

 

“We believe that the right to a speedy trial and the presumption of innocence are essential pillars to law, order, and a Republican form of government,” the letter continues.  “We also believe that a trial by a jury of one’s peers is the highest form of justice as set forth by our founders.  Ensuring government stays within the bounds of its proper constitutional role empowers the people through a jury’s verdict to give clear guidance as to their will.”

 

They then spoke out about the innocence of the defendants who have already been tried and found not guilty.

 

“We the undersigned believe that in the case of ‘The Bunkerville Stand Off’ trials in the State of Nevada in which Eric Parker and O. Scott Drexler of the State of Idaho were charged with 40 criminal counts in connection with the above case having been found not guilty speaks volumes to the public of their innocence,” the letter states.  “U. S. Attorneys have been unsuccessful obtaining guilty verdicts not once, but twice, establishing criteria for dismissal of charges against them according to our standards of justice.  Further expolitation [sic] of these citizens would be an affront to justice and notice to the public of prosecutorial harassment.”

 

Well, if you ask me, that began when they sought to try the men a second time after failing to prove their case.  After all, the burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove guilt, not on those charged to prove their innocence.

 

“We believe that the decision by the current U. S. Attorney of Nevada to prosecute these men a third time represents disrespect for the rule of law and the Jury system,” the representatives wrote.  “A third trial would show blatant disregard for tax funds collected from hard working law abiding citizens who are represented by these juries who have found them innocent of 34 of the 40 charges and hung by the very slimmest margins in those where the jury stood deadlocked.  The decisions of 10-2 to acquit in the first trial and 11-1 to acquit in the second trial highlights the narrow margin by which the prosecution hopes to continue their attack.”

 

They then called on Sessions, the court and the prosecutor to consider Todd Engel’s time served as punishment for the minor charges for which he was found guilty.  He is scheduled to be sentenced on September 28.

 

“Ammon Bundy, an Idaho resident, remains in custody awaiting trial directly after the final outcome of the pending prosecution’s decision with Parker and Drexler,” the letter adds.  “Ammon has been in custody since January of 2016 without benefit of bail or the comfort of home and familiy [sic] in spite of being found not guilty of all counts in the Oregon trial.  Ammon has been stripped of normal due process for a prosecution that now seems flimsy as we discover evidence exposed during these previous hung trials of others for similar offenses.”

 

The representatives then added, “This prosecution sends a chilling message to the public who are concerned about federal overreach in their daily lives that is inharmonious to well-established constitutional guarantees.  The percentages of jurors causing the hung verdicts in these trials should send a clear signal to the government prosecutors of the jury’s reticence to further prosecute these defendants as has clearly been received by the public.”

 

The representatives then call on Sessions to “have those in charge of this case end this long enduring action and set Eric Parker and Scott Drexler free, set reasonable bail for Ammon Bundy and allow Todd Engel to use his time served as total sentencing.

 

Among signing the letter include House Majority Leader Mike Moyle; Assistant Majority Leader Brent Crane; Treasure Valley Sens. Clifford Bayer and Lori Den Hartog; and Treasure Valley Reps. Judy Boyle, Christy Perry, Brandon Hixon, Greg Chaney, Joe Palmer, James Holtzclaw, Steve Harris and Jason Monks.

 

“I think it is a complete injustice and a waste of taxpayer money and time to continue to go after these guys after two mistrials,” said Rep. Boyle, from Midvale.

 

“Let it go. We are not talking about murders, robberies, druggies, rapists. It is continuing to waste the court’s time and federal taxpayers’ money. I know the federal government wants to make a point, but get over it.”

 

Things do not have to go to a third trial in order for this to be considered exploitation and prosecutorial harassment.  That has and is currently taking place by the prosecution and by Judge Gloria Navarro.

 

I have said since the end of the first trial, if the prosecution had any sense about them, they would drop the charges against the remaining defendants and spare them and taxpayers any further grief and burden by simply admitting the central government was wrong.

 

I’m hoping once things settle that we will see each one of these men come together to sue the pants off the prosecution and the judge in the case, as well as Bureau of Land Management goon Daniel P. Love for their reckless and lawless behavior in this entire process.

 

Seeing that a new trial date has been set, it appears AG Sessions doesn’t care that the Fifth and Sixth Amendments are being violated concerning Drexler and Parker and that other rights are being violated concerning the remaining defendants in the case.  I’m not surprised.  After all, Sessions has demonstrated he doesn’t care about the Fifth Amendments protections of lifeliberty and property when it comes to asset forfeiture.

A Communist Cleansing of America

A Communist Cleansing of America

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/19/2017 9:10 PM

 

With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.” — Jeri Taylor/ Star Trek script

 

Americans witnessed more violence, yet again, on August 12th 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a Unite the Right free speech rally, that also hoped to stop the removal of Confederate General Robert E Lee’s statue from Emancipation Park. While an unknown number of counter-protesters who truly see Confederate monuments as painful reminders, of a time of bondage in America’s past, were there, many were simply good and decent conservatives, who understand that America cannot allow Her history to be re-written and eradicated.

 

Unfortunately, the roots of violence in Charlottesville, that ended Heather Heyer’s life, is the same sort of violence America witnessed in the 1960s and more recently in Ferguson, Baltimore, Dallas and Baton Rouge and now dozens of other cities across America, but its cause goes far deeper than a few Confederate monuments. Removing the monuments will solve nothing.

 

It’s hard to imagine that the hard-core left of Antifa and Black Lives Matter had any noble purposes, once one discovers they came prepared with clubs and urine and feces filled bottles and balloons; and, it is even more telling that Charlottesville Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy is a black supremacist racist and a member of the New Black Panthers, who tweeted, “I don’t like whit[e] people so I hate snow” on December 20th 2009, and “I hate seeing white people in Orangeburg”, on February 13th 2011.

 

The violence soon started, once a state of emergency was declared at 11:06 A.M. and law enforcement called the event an “unlawful assembly” at 11:36 AM. Law enforcement forced conservatives, Nazis and KKK alike out of Emancipation Park and directly into the violent hordes of waiting Antifa, who hurled their urine filled containers. And in essence, the police failed to maintain order; it’s been suggested by ACLU  investigators that the police were given a “stand down” order.

 

Swastikas, Antifa black flags and Hammer and Sickles flew in despicable fashion over America’s horizon in Charlottesville, and the Nazis and Antifa Marxists engaged in hand to hand combat. At the height of the violence, Sheryl Gay Stolberg (NYT) wrote, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as the alt-right. I saw club-wielding Antifa beating white nationalists …”, but she then corrected her report to cover for Antifa’s evil, writing, “Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate.”

 

One cannot ascribe varying degrees of blame to the radical groups in Charlottesville. The Neo-Nazis’ venomous racism is no more or less contemptible than Antifa and BLM’s belief that offensive speech, other than their own, must be banned at any cost, as they endeavor to destroy our republic. These young fascists and communists have far more in common with each other, than they do with decent conservative and classical liberal thinkers and patriotic Americans, which is always true of violent radicals and totalitarian minded petty tyrants.

 

If we are to survive as a republic, we must condemn the violence and evil philosophy of those members of the Neo-Nazi and KKK groups; we must condemn the violence of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panthers, and La Raza and their communist ideology. We must also stop allowing the mainstream media to falsely label all conservatives as bigots and racists and all left-wing activists as moral crusaders. Otherwise, with our honesty as a society in question at the moment, America will soon cease being a free society.

 

It is important to note that the radical Far Left has grown enormously, since the 1960s, and even more over the last decade, Their most recent violence was witnessed in Oakland 2009, Pittsburgh 2009, Akron 2009, Oakland 2010, Los Angeles 2010, Oakland 2011, Anaheim 2012, Brooklyn 2013, Ferguson 2014, New York 2014, Baltimore 2015, Oakland 2016, Portland 2016, Washington D.C. 2017, Olympia 2017, Portland 2017 and Berkeley on three separate occasions this year, along with massive property damage, injured citizens and hundreds of hurled Molotov cocktails.

 

There isn’t any comparable list of Neo-Nazi or “alt-right” protests. There have not been many in recent years, and it is a factual error to call the entire alt-right movement “racist”; it started as an organization that noted one could be white, or any color, and be proud of one’s race without hating other races, and that one need not apologize to people of color for their ancestor’s sins of slavery or for being white.

 

However, heavily laden with Leftist propaganda mouthpieces, the mainstream media is unwilling to take an honest look at Antifa and the evil it perpetrates, because that would not advance their false narrative of America and people of color still being victimized by conservative groups. America’s media provides cover for the anarchists and communists, who hide behind self-proclaimed righteousness to commit criminal acts of violence.

 

Now, the media castigates President Donald Trump for not condemning the Nazis and white supremacists harshly enough, after it gave President Barack Obama a pass, when Black Lives Matter, other communists and anarchists and ISIS sympathizers tore Ferguson. Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland apart. this is typical Leftist media hypocrisy, but to hear it from a number of Republicans, like former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) is inexcusable. Where were these Republicans, when black thugs posing as “activists” were destroying U.S. cities and attacking white people?

 

In Durham N.C. shortly after Charlottesville’s violence, our own Taliban smashed a statue of a Confederate soldier. Near the entrance of Duke University Chapel, a statue of Lee was defaced, the nose broken off.

 

Takiya Thompson, 22, was the young lady who helped tear down the Confederate monument in Durham, identified through on-site video. She was soon arrested after addressing a press conference of the Worker’s World Party, a Marxist mélange that stuck with the Soviets through all their human rights abuses.

 

On August 16th, Baltimore carried out a cultural cleansing by taking down statues of Lee and Maryland Chief Justice Roger Taney, who wrote the Dred Scott decision and opposed Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus. Approximately 100 other statues from Chattanooga to Murfreesboro and Franklin to Tampa, Dallas and Houston are facing the same fate.

 

If America starts tearing down all the statues of Confederate heroes, like Robert E. Lee, “Stonewall” Jackson and Nathan Bedford Forrest, why stop there? What about the nine presidents of the United States who owned slaves? [Blog Editor: History.com – 12 Presidents & Wikipedia – 18 Presidents]

 

Laura Ingraham, renowned talk radio host, along with President Trump, myself and many others, is right to ask, “What else will be subjected to their eradication and denunciation”, further noting, “This is not about racial healing. This is about the control of the narrative and the destruction of historical recognition.”

 

Perhaps the Left will start purging their own Democratic Party, as good communists often do, of displays that honor racist Democrats. There’s a statue of former Senator Robert Byrd (D-WVA), a Grand Kleagle in the KKK, in West Virginia’s state capitol. There also exists approximately 56 buildings, bridges, highways and centers that are named after Byrd. Do they need to be renamed or destroyed now?

 

What about Senator J. William Fulbright (D-MO)? Fulbright was a segregationist who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and 1964, and he opposed implementing the Court’s ruling in Brown v. Board of Education.

 

Should statues of NAACP co-founder, W.E.B. Du Bois, be toppled? Du Bois was kicked out of the NAACP (now far-left), because he supported segregation. He became a communist, renounced his U.S. citizenship and praised mass murderers Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-Tung as great leaders.

 

If the Jefferson Memorial or the Washington Monument was blown up today, who would America blame — the Islamic jihadists or the Antifa fascists?

 

This is precisely what the Left intends on accomplishing, because at the core of their evil little hearts, these Antifa and Black Lives Matter types are outright communists. They will burn America’s biographies and histories and write new texts aimed at abolishing eternal truths and all religion and morality. They will “cleanse” our modern society to prepare for the “classless society” where what was and is no longer exists. And finally, they will indoctrinate our children and demand that they tear down and destroy what their fathers cherished.

 

America is in a fight for Her very life, because the “protests” by the radicals of Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other communist backed groups are focused on taking down Our Republic by any means necessary. America is under assault by communists and anarchists bent on defining our rights through the state communist “elite”, more than they have any real concern over “white supremacy”, and in order to succeed, they must undermine and destroy the U.S. Constitution and complete the “fundamental transformation” of America into an authoritarian socialist state.

 

Every American, who loves America so well, must fight in the halls of state legislatures and the U.S. Congress, and the streets of America if necessary, to protect America. We must demand that our leaders properly use the tools of the Constitution and America and guide America back towards American traditions and the Western and Judeo-Christian principles and ethos, that have always defined America’s free society, in order that America’s Children and Her Children’s Children will continue to live, under the rule of law, free for all eternity.

Charlottesville Violent Participants Pt TWO


By John R. Houk

© August 17, 2017

 

On Wednesday 8/16/17, I posted Part ONE which I took a look at the racist participants of the Charlottesville rumble of Neo-Nazis, KKK and White Supremacist Nationalists spewing their odious ideology using the excuse of preserve the American history embodied by the Confederacy.

 

Clearly these White Supremacist racists were more interested in odious propaganda than in preserving history. Check out the racist sloganeering a couple of days before the Charlottesville VA rumble at nearby University of Virginia:

 

VIDEO: 8/12/17 White NEO-NAZI March at University of Virginia Chanting Nazi Slogans

 

Posted by GrimReaperNextDoor

Published on Aug 12, 2017

 

A group of white nationalists sparked outrage on a college campus in Virginia on Friday after the marched with torches across campus while chanting Nazi expressions.

The demonstrators marched on the campus grounds at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville late Friday as precursor to a Saturday protest planned to publicly oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Marches could be heard chanting slogans including “white lives matter” and “you will not replace us.” Others could be heard chanting “blood and soil,” a well-known Nazi rallying cry. Police eventually declared the protest an unlawful assembly and both protesters and counter protesters reported being pepper sprayed.

Some videos captured at the scene appeared to show counter protesters clashing with the white nationalists.

University of Virginia president Teresa A. Sullivan condemned the READ THE REST

 

Ergo, the racist march at U of V seems like incitement practice in Charlottesville.

 

AND YET, the Left-Wing Counter-Protesters were at best infiltrated by violent Antifa/Black Lives Matter rumblers or at worst were the leaders of the rumbling Left.

 

In any case Leftist rumblers came just as armed as the racist White Supremacists. So, let’s look at Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM).

 

Antifa

 

VIDEO: Antifa Exposed – Newly Press

 

Posted by John Houk

Published on Aug 17, 2017

 

I found this exposé of Antifa on the Facebook page called “Newly Press”. (http://tinyurl.com/y754ycpp)

 

The undercover narrator is Joey Salads (sounds like it could be a pseudonym). With the one-sided reporting on the Charlottesville Rumble just looking at racist White Supremacists, it is good to remember that Communist anarchists were engaging in violence as well.

 

Racism is evil! BUT Communism is evil too!

 

From the New American:

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Police across the United States are being forced to deal with a new hard-Left, communist-derived movement organized under the code word “Antifa,” standing for “Anti-Fascist.”

 

The violent, confrontational nature of Antifa anarchists presents a challenge to U.S. law enforcement that is unprecedented; they reject the free speech principles upon which civil discourse depends, while seeking to achieve the demise of the U.S. Constitution, as it holds as illegitimate any compromise with their communist worldview.

 

The Antifa movement roots in Weimar Republic Germany

 

While the Antifa movement is anarchic in nature, it owes its birth to the Communist Party’s opposition to the Nazi fascist movement in post-World War I Germany.

 

1930s fascism is best explained by Jonah Goldberg. In his 2008 book Liberal Fascism, he points out that fascism is a phenomenon of the political Left, in that communists and fascists were “closely related, historical competitors for the same constituents.” In a key paragraph applying these principles to American fascism, Goldberg wrote:

 

Much like the Nazi movement, liberal fascism had two faces: the street radicals and the establishment radicals. In Germany, the two groups worked in tandem to weaken middle-class resistance to the Nazis’ agenda. In the previous chapter we saw how the liberal fascists of the SDS and the Black Panther movements rose up to terrorize the American middle class. In the remainder of this chapter — and the next — we will explain how the “suit-and-tie radicals” of the 1960s, people like Hillary Clinton and her friends, use this terror to expand the power and scope of the state and above all to change the public attitude toward the state as the agent of social progress and universal caring and compassion.

The Antifa movement in the U.S. is a return to the communist paramilitary riot tactics developed to fight the Brownshirts of the Weimar Republic. The goal was to terrorize middle-class Germans into rejecting the Nazis who had embraced the social-welfare programs of prior regimes.

 

 

In what was branded as a “DisruptJ20” protest, some 1,000 Antifa thugs broke windows at Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Bank of America, as well as in commercial buildings in downtown Washington. Antifa rioters flooded streets, blocked traffic, burned trash in the streets, and broke windshields of passing cars. They threatened to attack inauguration attendees on the streets, while shouting a continuous flow of angry, vulgar, and confrontational in-your-face insults.

 

 

The militant or radical Left as described by Lennard has little — if anything — in common with the traditional liberal politics of Democrats such as John F. Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey in the 1960s. She [i.e. Natasha Lennard] continued:

 

As organizers from anti-fascist research and news site Antifa NYC told The Nation: “Antifa combines radical left-wing and anarchist politics, revulsion at racists, sexists, homophobes, anti-Semites, and Islamophobes, with the international anti-fascist culture of taking to the streets and physically confronting the brownshirts of white supremacy, whoever they may be.” As with fascisms, not all anti-fascisms are the same, but the essential feature is that anti-fascism does not tolerate fascism; it would give it no platform for debate.

 

 

Lennard made it clear that Antifa radicals are READ ENTIRETY (How the Violent Hard-Left “Antifa” Movement Copies Communists in Weimar Republic Germany; By Jerome R. Corsi; New American; 8/15/17)

 

Ben Shapiro on Antifa:

 

… Antifa is a loosely connected band of anti-capitalist protesters generally on the far left who dub themselves “anti-fascist” after their compatriots in Europe. They’ve been around in the United States since the 1990s, protesting globalization and burning trash cans at World Trade Organization meetings. But they’ve kicked into high gear over the past two years: They engaged in vandalism in violence, forcing the cancelation of a speech by alt-right popularizer Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley; a few months later, they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Berkeley; they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Sacramento, California, leading to a bloody street fight; they threw projectiles at police during President Trump’s inauguration; they attacked pro-Trump free-speech demonstrators in Seattle last weekend. They always label their opponents “fascists” in order to justify their violence.

 

In Charlottesville, Antifa engaged in street violence with the alt-right racists. As in Weimar, Germany, fascists flying the swastika engaged in hand-to-hand combat with Antifa members flying the communist red. And yet, the media declared that any negative coverage granted to Antifa would detract from the obvious evils of the alt-right. Sheryl Gay Stolberg of The New York Times tweeted in the midst of the violence, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” After receiving blowback from the left, Stolberg then corrected herself. She said: “Rethinking this. Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate.”

 

Or perhaps Antifa is a hateful group itself. But that wouldn’t fit the convenient narrative Antifa promotes and the media buy: that the sole threat to the republic comes from the racist right. Perhaps that’s why the media ignored the events in Sacramento and Berkeley and Seattle — to point out the evils of Antifa might detract from the evils of the alt-right.

 

 

Here’s the moral solution, as always: Condemn violence and evil wherever it occurs. The racist philosophy of the alt-right is evil. The violence of the alt-right is evil. The communist philosophy of Antifa is evil. So is the violence of Antifa. If we are to survive as a republic, we must call out Nazis but not punch them; we must stop providing cover to anarchists and communists who seek to hide behind self-proclaimed righteousness to participate in violence. Otherwise, we won’t be an honest or a free society. READ ENTIRETY (The Group That Got Ignored in Charlottesville; By Ben Shapiro; Creators.com; 8/16/17)

 

CSC Media Group looks a bit closer at Antifa ideology:

 

 

“Anti-fascism” became the official ideology of Stalinist parties, although anarchists, and migrant activists have also continued to identify as anti-fascists. The movement would continue through the end of World War II and right on through the Cold War.

 

The Resurgence

 

It would have an almost rebirth, or resurgence in the 1990s after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Once again the communists would fight against what they saw as right-wing fascist groups. Keep in mind, although these groups were fighting fascism, it wasn’t fighting fascism for freedom. Rather they wanted to replace it with communism.

 

 

The End Game

 

Now, the communist and the anarchists don’t have the same goals, other than fighting the powers that hold them back. They’ve decided that they will fight one enemy at a time. When that one is defeated they will fight the other ones standing next to them. They will continue to fight until only one is left standing.

 

 

… One of these groups is known as “Bamn” “By any means necessary.” One of their leaders is a school teacher in California. This is possibly why so many of the protests have been concentrated along the west coast.

 

 

… There are slogans like “antifascism means attack” not only against neonazis but also against the civil and capitalist system.

 

READ ENTIRETY (“Antifa” Anti-Fascists With Pro-Communist Roots; By Dominick Luckette; CSC Media Group; 4/28/17)

 

Here are two articles worth looking at to understand the evil and un-American the Antifa Communists are to Liberty and Freedom:

 

 

 

Black Lives Matter (BLM)

From Accuracy in Media:

 

The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. Its agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S. If allowed to continue, that agitation could devolve into anarchy and civil war. The BLM crowd appears to be spoiling for just such an outcome.

 

 

Leftist Origins

 

Exploiting blacks to promote Marxist revolution is an old tactic. … Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn regarded Barack Obama, whose political career they sponsored, as a tool—a puppet—to use against white America. Obama’s legacy at home will certainly include more racial division.

 

[BLM Founder Photo not a part of AIM article]

 

Garza, Cullors and Tometi all work for front groups of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), one of the four largest radical Left organizations in the country. The others are the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS). Nelini Stamp’s ACORN—now rebranded under a variety of different names—works with all four organizations, and Dream Defenders is backed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center and others.

 

FRSO is a hereditary descendant of the New Communist Movement, which was inspired by Mao and the many communist revolutions throughout the world in the 1960s and 1970s. FRSO split into two separate groups in 1999, FRSO/Fight Back and FRSO/OSCL (Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Organizaci?n Socialista del Camino para la Libertad). Black Lives Matter and its founders are allied with the latter group. Future references to FRSO in this article refer to FRSO/OSCL.

 

 

BLM is one of many projects undertaken by the FRSO. Except for the website, blacklivesmatter.com, there is no actual organization. The website implicitly acknowledges this, describing #BlackLivesMatter as “an online forum intended to build connections between Black people and our allies to fight anti-Black racism, to spark dialogue among Black people, and to facilitate the types of connections necessary to encourage social action and engagement.”

 

FRSO membership is disproportionately represented by blacks, gays and women, and self-consciously emphasizes those issues. Garza, who penned a “Herstory” of BLM, is a “queer,” black veteran activist involved in …

 

 

Cullors describes herself as a “working class, queer, black woman.” …

 

Cullors was trained by Eric Mann, a former Weather Underground leader who exhorts followers to become “anti-racist, anti-imperialist” activists. Mann runs another FRSO front, the Labor/Community Strategy Center. Like most professional leftists, he makes good money—over $225,000 annually—living in “the system” he advocates destroying.

 

Tometi is the daughter of illegal aliens from Nigeria. While in college, she worked for the ACLU defending illegal aliens against “vigilantes” opposed to illegal immigration. She is currently the executive director of Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI).

 

 

Mainstream funders have helped fund BLM as well. For example, United Way has partnered with A&E and iHeartMedia to create Shining the Light Advisors, a committee of “nationally known experts and leaders in racial and social justice,” to oversee grant disbursements. These “advisors” include such radicals as Van Jones, Advancement Project co-director Judith Browne Dianis, and Rinku Sen, president of the Applied Research Center (ARC).

 

 

Its wide network of affiliates and partner organizations like CPUSA and ACORN allows BLM to turn out large crowds. Many participate simply to protest, commit violence, loot or all three.

 

 

Fithian echoes Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven—creators of the infamous Cloward/Piven Crisis Strategy—who spent decades attempting to provoke ghetto blacks to riot, because “Poor people can advance only when ‘the rest of society is afraid of them.’” …

 

 

Islamist organizations have also jumped on the BLM bandwagon, reminding us of the unholy alliance that exists –

between them and the radical Left. In September 2015, the Muslim Brotherhood front-group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) joined BLM activists in storming California Governor Jerry Brown’s office. CAIR also participated in the Ferguson protests. Meanwhile ISIS is recruiting American blacks for its cause. 

 

Intellectual Genealogy of Black Lives Matter

 

We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth… We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”—Vladimir Lenin

 

That quote from the Soviet Union’s first leader captures the entire essence of the Left’s strategy. No matter what the issue, no matter what the facts, the Left advances a relentless, hate-filled narrative that America is irredeemably evil and must be destroyed as soon as possible. The BLM movement is only the latest but perhaps most dangerous variant on this divisive theme.

 

 

Obama’s favorite Harvard professor Derrick Bell devised Critical Race Theory, which exemplifies Lenin’s strategy as applied to race. According to Discover the Networks:

 

“Critical race theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core, and that consequently the nation’s legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid … members of “oppressed” racial groups are entitled—in fact obligated—to determine for themselves which laws and traditions have merit and are worth observing…”

 

Bell’s theory is in turn an innovation of Critical Theory—developed by philosophers of the communist Frankfurt School. …

 

 

The “White Skin Privilege” idea was created in 1967 by Noel Ignatiev, an acolyte of Bell and professor at Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute (Du Bois was a Communist black leader who helped found the NAACP). Ignatiev was a member of CPUSA’s most radical wing, the Maoist/Stalinist Provisional Organizing Committee to Reconstitute the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (POC). POC was the intellectual forerunner to FRSO.

 

 

But do not be confused; “White” does not mean white. “White” in radical construction means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government and American traditional culture and values. By definition, these beliefs are irredeemably evil and anyone who aligns with them is “white” in spirit and thus equally guilty of “white crimes.” Ignatiev still teaches, now at the Massachusetts College of Art.

 

The Black Lives Matter movement carries this narrative to unprecedented heights, claiming that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers” and leftist Democrats, intent on making blacks into cannon fodder for the revolution.

When President Trump in a news conference had essentially what next lauding American history will be taken down:

 

Trump said that “this week… it’s Robert E. Lee. And, I heard Stonewall Jackson is coming down.”

 

“Is George Washington [coming down] next week. And, is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?” Trump said, noting both American icons were slaveholders in Virginia. (‘Is It George Washington Next Week?’: Trump Blasts Monument Removals as ‘Changing History’; Fox News; 8/15/17 4:58pm)

 

The New Zeal blog reports American historical monuments that had nothing to do with the Confederacy are being defaced:

 

Well, that didn’t take long. I predicted when all of this racist crap started that the lefty communists would move quickly from confederate statues onto other targets and here we go. The Lincoln Memorial was defaced yesterday with the ‘F’ word and other graffiti. Then, so-called Social Justice Warriors set their sights on the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Hundreds demanded that a “racist” statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt be taken down. I strongly suggest they don’t do that. And the communists and radicals won’t stop there… they have a huge list of targets across the nation, including anything to do with the Founding Fathers.

One of the BLM founders – Alicia Garza – is paraphrased as stipulating at Mizzou U on 2/18/16:

 

“The goal of the Constitution was to make an agreement between factions known as states, which were built on the backs of black slaves.” She described constitutionalism as racist, saying: “The people vowing to protect the Constitution are vowing to protect white supremacy and genocide.” (The Real Agenda Behind Black Lives Matter; By  GERALD FLURRY; The Trumpet; 5/2016)

 

The influence of Marxists Cloward and Piven on Black Lives Matter:

 

In 1966, sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven called for the overloading of the U.S. welfare system to force the potential collapse of our Democratic Republic government and end poverty by the government “guaranteeing an annual income for all Americans.”  This is Communism–a godless human government where the state is the ultimate entity to be worshiped and obeyed.

 

Fifty years later, are we seeing Cloward and Piven’s dream become reality?  Our nation is being divided and overwhelmed economically and socially, and some feel we are on the brink of becoming a Marxist state.

 

Cloward-Piven believed in forcing political change through orchestrated crisis and not surprisingly, they were both members of the Democratic Socialists of America. The two were also involved in the birthing of radical organizations such as ACORN, which has branched out into several organizations including some in support of Black Lives Matter, according to journalist, James Simpson.

 

 

This report examines in detail, for the first time, how communist groups have manipulated the cause of Black Lives Matter, and how money from liberal foundations has made it all possible.

 

 

…The radical Left model is based on alliances of many organizations that are working on separate issues but dedicated ultimately to the same thing: overthrowing our society in order to replace it with a hardcore socialist (read communist) one.

 

The goal is to present the appearance of a formidable mass of organizations. Some are large, but many are little more than a website or Facebook page. When necessary, they can all come together to promote the cause du jour. The deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and others were mere pretexts for socialist agitation. The real enemy is “the system.” This is why the BLM crowd denies the facts of those cases. As Stamp has said, “we are actually trying to change the capitalist system we have today because it’s not working for any of us.”

 

READ ENTIRETY (BLACK LIVES MATTER, CAPITALISM, AND COMMUNISM IN AMERICA; Posted by Stand Up For The Truth; StandUpForTheTruth.com; 7/18/16)

 

Here is an interesting insight from a blogger that has been inactive since April 2017:

 

[I]t isn’t surprising that Black Lives Matter is a communist organization—but the type of communism they subscribe to is. They are conservative communists attempting to fold the progressive movement back into traditional Marxism.

 

… BLM is rebirthing the traditional class struggle, reframing it in terms of black and white.

 

The policy platform proposed by BLM in August did nothing to hide this traditionalism. Its calls for collective ownership of resources, banks, and businesses, a highly progressive income tax, a guaranteed minimum income, and government jobs are lifted straight from the pages of Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.” Here are two excerpts for comparison:

 

“Communist Manifesto”: Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

 

 

Black vs. White Is the New Proletariat vs. Bourgeoisie

 

But more important is BLM’s use of the black versus white dichotomy. While race has a long history as a wedge issue, BLM incorporates nearly all forms of modern marginalization—“including but not limited to those who are women, queer, trans, femmes, gender nonconforming, Muslim, formerly and currently incarcerated, cash poor and working class, differently-abled, undocumented, and immigrant”—into blackness. Conversely, whiteness represents all forms of privilege (economic, social, and legal) throughout the platform.

 

BLM has simply substituted Marx’s class conflict between the proletariat and bourgeoisie for class conflict between blackness and whiteness. …

 

The black vs. white dichotomy creates a permanent enemy class, to which defection is always incomplete. And unlike the proletariat class consciousness, race consciousness already exists, making mobilization easier. …

 

Why Black Lives Matter Rejects Intersectionality

 

Where Marxism prioritizes the class struggle between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat (or between black and white), the modern theory of intersectionality prioritizes differences between identity politic groups. It posits that while white women face marginalization for their sex, they gain privilege from their race. Conversely, black men gain privilege from their sex while facing marginalization because of their race. Black women experience “double jeopardy,” suffering from both sex and race. This creates a hierarchy of oppression that is in constant flux as new forms of marginalization are recognized. Intersectional theory fractures the class conflict from two opposed groups into an unlimited number of conflicts within the hierarchy of oppression.

 

 

BLM treats intersectional conflicts and “non-black people of color” much the same way Marx treated the reserve army of labor and petty bourgeoisie: as auxiliaries to the proletariat and bourgeoisie conflict. In their glossary, BLM defines the term “non-black people of color” as intended “to provide greater context to the distinct and unique oppression imposed on Black people, while recognizing the struggles of other people of color.” Which is to say that while intersectional conflicts exist, the Black vs. White conflict takes priority.

Currently Antifa Communists and BLM Communists seem to have linked their agendas together fomenting violent revolution through race baiting. I have to wonder if the Obama Administration clandestinely empowered these anarchist revolutionaries. Many Conservatives have used this moniker for Barack Hussein Obama: Race-Baiter-in-Chief.

 

I also have to wonder if Obama’s Organizing for Action Deep State group (See Also HERE) has some clandestine linkage to BLM or even Antifa for that matter.

 

It is clear the American Left pulling out all the unConstitutional stops to destroy the Liberty and Freedom our Founding Fathers enabled during and after the Revolutionary War to form the greatest Republic the world has seen. If the Left has its way – Antifa and BLM are Marxist tools – the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution will be ripped up and placed on the forgotten ash heap of history.

Charlottesville Is Biggest ‘Fake News’ of Summer


Again, just to be clear. The Neo-Nazi-KKK-White National racist march to defend Confederate was an evil that must be reprehensible to all Americans. I mean these guys actually were more concerned about a public display of their racist ideology then legitimately protesting the historical cleansing of American history.

 

David Horowitz points out the racists legally applied for and obtained permit to march publicly. The Antifa/Black Lives Matter Communists did not have a permit. AND the Charlottesville Police made zero effort to enforce the law when the Antifa/BLM Marxist/Black Supremacist supporters counter-protested illegally without a permit.

Charlottesville Is Biggest ‘Fake News’ of Summer

[Newsmax] Editor’s Note: David Horowitz is the author of the runaway New York Times bestseller “Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America.” His book first predicted the anti-Trump left would use race to divide America and undermine the Trump presidency. His op-ed for Newsmax appears below. Get more info on “Big Agenda” — Go Here Now.

 

The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war.

 

Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.

 

The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists.

 

But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else.

 

They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU.

 

If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit?

 

Who knows what — if anything — would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.

 

What Unite the Right actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the “Alt-Right” is actually a negligible group.

 

This supposed national show of strength actually attracted all of 500 people.

 

Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshaled by two violent groups of the left — Black Lives Matter and Antifa — and you get an idea of how marginal “white supremacists” are to America’s political and cultural life.

 

Yet “white supremacy” and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports.

 

Talk about virtue signaling!

 

Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent leftwing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.

 

Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not apply for permits, which would have been denied since there was another demonstration scheduled for that park on that day.

 

But why should they have applied for a permit, since the mayhem they had previously caused in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as “protests,” and their rioting went completely unpunished.

 

In other words, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville — a legal protest by Unite the Right and an illegal protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

 

Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life.

 

Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable.

 

Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.

 

What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy — “white supremacy” — which is really a war on white people generally.

 

The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is “identity politics” — the idea that the world consists of two groups — “people of color” who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors.

 

This is the real race war.

 

Its noxious themes inform the mindless, hysterical hatred of President Trump, and the equally mindless support of racist mobs like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

 

It is a war from which no good can come. But it won’t be stopped unless enough people have the courage to stand up and name it for what it is.

Antifa v. Alt-Right in Charlottesville — and America

The coming battles between sociopathic Leftists — the socialist “anti-fascists” and the “alternate-right” anarchists.

 

By Mark Alexander

The Patriot Post

 

“It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” —Thomas Jefferson (1787)

 

Liberals ME & Liberals in USA

 

Last weekend, according to NBC Chicago, there were nine people killed and more than 30 wounded in gunfights on the streets of Chicago — and those figures don’t include the deaths and injuries from other weapons within that Democrat Party pit.

 

This is a recurring tragedy in Chicago, and yet it’s highly probable that 99.999% of Americans have not heard about those deaths. Indeed, even though most of the murdered were black, who beyond the immediate family and friends of the deceased can name a single unfortunate victim of all the hatred and violence that is commonplace there?

 

The reason their names and faces are anonymous is that their lives have no value as political fodder for the Demo/media propaganda machine or its so-called “Black Lives Matter” constituency. Those victims are simply tossed onto the pile of 430 homicides in Chicago thus far this year, to the horror of those of us who believe that “all lives matter.”

 

Now consider this: Last weekend, there was one person murdered in Charlottesville, Virginia, by an Ohio man, and the whole world knows the name of that unfortunate victim.

 

Charlottesville is, as anyone who has been there can attest, a great town. In January, I declined an invitation to attend the Trump inaugural fanfare, opting instead that weekend to meet my son in Charlottesville for a few days visiting friends and re-visiting historic sites.

 

This area is, in my opinion, the richest historic region in America.

 

Charlottesville is the site of Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello home, which sits just above the town, and his beloved University of Virginia. Just beyond Monticello is James Monroe’s Highland home place. To the north is Montpelier, home of our Constitution’s author, James Madison. To the west is Lexington, home of Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Academy — and burial place of Virginia sons Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Northeast is George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and the home of George Mason. To the east are Richmond, Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown — the final battle site of the American Revolution.

 

Despite being the epicenter of such extraordinary history, Charlottesville is also lorded over by a disgraceful mayor, Mike Signer, and his Leftist city council — a group of Berkeley wannabes who have led local historical purges of Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee.

 

It was the planned removal of a small statue of the latter from a city park that was the catalyst for the obscene riots last weekend in this otherwise quiet and idyllic town.

 

That riot was a clash between sociopathic forces — the antifa, the ironically self-styled “anti-fascists” leading the Leftist intifada against anyone supporting Liberty or any economic system other than socialism, and the alt-right, an anarcho-fascist fringe movement of white supremacists. Notably the alt-right racists had an ACLU-defended permit for their protest hate speech. The antifa socialists and black supremacists showed up in mass without a permit.

 

Thugs Clash in Charlottesville

 

Eight years of racial antagonism by Barack Obama and his radical regime led to mass riots in more than 20 American urban centers, fomented by Leftist groups operating under the banners of Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, antifa, et al. That violence erupted in Oakland, Akron and Pittsburgh in 2009; Santa Cruz, Oakland and Los Angeles in 2010; Oakland in 2011; Chicago and Anaheim in 2012; Brooklyn in 2013; Ferguson and New York City in 2014; Baltimore in 2015; Anaheim, Chicago, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Charlotte, Standing Rock, Oakland and Portland in 2016; and DC, Berkeley, Anaheim, Berkeley part 2, Berkeley part 3, Olympia and Portland in 2017.

 

While Republicans, Democrats and the mainstream media have correctly tagged one side of the hateful antagonists in Charlottesville as “white supremacists,” you won’t find any reference by any Democrat, or their Leftmedia propagandists, to the “black supremacists” who were at the center of, or significant participants in, all the aforementioned urban violence.

 

Nor did a single politico or media outlet rightly tag Micah X, who murdered five police officers in Dallas a year ago, a “black supremacist.” He was just the latest manifestation of the Democrats’ playbook, which endeavors to foment disunity to rally constituencies. To them, dead police officers are just collateral damage.

 

Remarkably, the riot in Charlottesville has already received more mass media bandwidth than the attempted mass assassination in June of multiple Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia, by a hate-filled Bernie Sanders supporter.

 

Perhaps “Virginia is [not] for Lovers” after all? Actually, Virginia is a great state when it’s not baiting anarchist haters.

 

Given the media feeding frenzy inspired by the riots in Charlottesville, allow me to impart a few observations.

 

First: Regarding President Donald Trump’s repeated condemnation of both the racists and the socialists

 

Assessing the violence, Charlottesville police chief Al Thomas noted, “Other groups [opposing the alt-right faction] began amassing along the street and in the park. Gradually, the crowd sizes increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of attendees toward one another. … We did have mutually combating individuals in the crowd.”

 

This mutual violence was evident to everyone present, and it was affirmed in real time by New York Times reporter Hawes Spencer, who observed, “Protesters maced each other, threw water bottles and urine balloons — some of which hit reporters — and generally beat the crap out of each other with flagpoles.”

 

However, Trump should not have dared to suggest that the violence was from both sides of the idiot line. According to the Leftmedia, the antifa groups are just a bunch of wholesome all-American “counter-protesters” defending our country against an epidemic of right-wing (Republican) hatred.

 

After concurring with the police chief and other observers about “mutually combating individuals,” Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides. No matter our color, creed, religion or political party we are all Americans first.”

 

But that denunciation wasn’t sufficient for the Leftmedia — or for establishment Republicans, who knew full well that the Demo/MSM would label them as “soft on supremacists” because Trump dared to identify both ugly factions.

 

Sunday, the White House communications staff followed up with: “The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups. He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.”

 

But even that was insufficient for the Leftmedia. Trump had failed to elevate the standing of the conflict to the level that best serves the Demo/MSM agenda and the need to cash in on the chaos for ad revenue and political contributions.

 

So Trump on Monday called a press confab and repeatedly condemned the racists in what was to be a unifying speech.

 

But that was too little too late for the Leftmedia.

 

MSM reports Trump Said

 

On Tuesday, in a contentious confrontation with MSM agitators, Trump dared again to suggest that the violence was mutual: “You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now: I think there is blame on both sides and I don’t have a doubt about it and you [reporters] don’t have a doubt about it either.”

 

He also condemned the removal of historic markers, saying, “This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s [statue is] coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, when does it stop?”

 

Of the Leftmedia “outrage” over Trump’s responses, Vice President Mike Pence said, “I take issue with the fact that many in the media … have spent an awful lot of time focusing on what the president said and criticisms of what the president said, instead of criticizing those who brought that hatred and violence to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.” He is correct.

 

Second: The Bannon problem

 

While I believe Trump’s response to the violence was measured — if very Trumpian — I also believe he has a problem on his staff by the name of Steve Bannon, chairman of his 2016 campaign and now his chief strategist.

 

Here’s the problem.

 

Jason Kessler is the white supremacist organizer of the “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville. He’s a University of Virginia graduate who lists on his résumé his last job as being a writer for “Daily Caller,” an online “conservative” news website co-founded in 2010 by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. For the record, despite the fact that I like Carlson’s commentary, our staff considers Daily Caller a well-funded titillation tabloid, and for that reason, it undermines the standing of genuine grassroots conservative publications. Indeed, as of this week, Daily Caller has scrubbed the commentary it hosted from Kessler.

 

Kessler’s colleague, Massachusetts native Richard Spencer, also a UVA graduate, was agitating the hatefest in Charlottesville.

 

Spencer is the founder of AlternativeRight.com, the alt-right homepage espousing, among other things, white supremacist views. After Trump’s election, Spencer led an alt-right conference group with “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!” chants. When Trump tapped Bannon to be a senior advisor, Spencer claimed he was in “the best possible position” to influence policy.

 

That brings me to Bannon himself, who took control of Breitbart News in 2012 after the death of Andrew Breitbart. Bannon did to Andrew’s popular website what Jeff Bezos is doing to the once-respectable Washington Post — adulterating its content to comport with extremist political views.

 

Breitbart News described Spencer’s website as the “center of alt-right thought,” and in 2016, Bannon declared Breitbart “the platform for the alt-right.” Spencer concurred, noting that Breitbart “has acted as a ‘gateway’ to alt-right ideas and writers.”

 

This, of course, doesn’t make Bannon or Trump “white supremacists.” Bannon, like Trump, has a propensity for shooting from the hip and saying stupid stuff. And most Trump supporters would have no idea what the “alt-right” is because, in fact, it’s nothing more than a minuscule fringe political identity group. But the Leftmedia would have you believe it’s the very foundation of the Republican Party.

 

In November 2016, Trump responded to questions about Bannon’s appointment, saying, “I’ve known Steve Bannon a long time. If I thought he was a racist, or alt-right … I wouldn’t even think about hiring him.”

 

But can you detect the problem here?

 

All you need to know about Bannon is that he does not have enough humility, in the interest of Trump’s agenda, to resign.

 

Third: Regarding the Orwellian trend of “historical cleansing” underway by Leftists

 

The “progressive” use of violence to force the removal of historical monuments from public spaces should concern Americans of all political stripes. This extremely dangerous trend by Leftists, like those sitting on the city council of historical hub Charlottesville, smacks of socialist Soviet “airbrushing” and the Maoist “Cultural Revolution.”

 

Longtime friend of The Patriot Post, distinguished George Mason University professor Walter Williams, has issued erudite warnings about the consequences of historical ignorance here and here, including the removal of historic markers to Confederate generals and the rewriting of American history.

 

The vast majority of Americans, including me, who strenuously object to tearing down and stamping out our historical heritage do not object because of some racist affinity. We object because this is our story, and because whitewashing it is an affront to American history and to our legacy of Liberty.

 

Predictably, seizing the mindless momentum, the Black Congressional Caucus issued demands for the first phase of monument removals in the U.S. Capitol building.

 

Booker T Washington quote on racism

 

As 20th century philosopher George Santayana concluded in his treatise, “The Life of Reason”: “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

 

English writer Aldous Huxley put it more succinctly: “That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.”

 

Fourth: The ACLU and Charlottesville Police

 

Notably, ACLU observers on Twitter were among the first to report that the Charlottesville police had stand-down orders, allowing the violence to escalate: “Clash between protesters and counter protesters. Police say, ‘We’ll not intervene until given command to do so.’” But that order never came.

 

This was affirmed by Fox News reporter Doug McKelway, who was in the middle of the combatants. “When the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate. I asked the guy who was in charge, ‘Where you going?’ He said, ‘We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.’ They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.”

 

If police officers are wholly unprepared for the level of violence, they should retreat. But this retreat looked more like the “stand-down” order that accelerated the 2015 Baltimore race riots.

 

Fifth: Who is funding antifa, Black Lives Matter and all the other Marxist/black supremacist groups that have emerged since 2008?

 

Judicial Watch is suing America-hating billionaire socialist George Soros for his funding records of Leftist political groups. Keep a sharp eye on the outcome of this lawsuit.

 

Finally, regarding the Republicans’ stampede to distance themselves from phony Leftist charges of racism, seeking to distance yourself from something already far removed actually feeds the narrative that maybe it is not so far removed.

 

To paraphrase a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “Republicans doth apologize too much, methinks.”

 

The Democrat Party and its Leftmedia outlets are colluding to publicize, and thus politicize, upcoming alt-right-versus-antifa venues for conflict in order to advance their agenda. In doing so, they hope to hang these riots around Republican necks.

 

But let’s be clear: Every drop of blood that’s shed in these riots — and there will be more of them — is on the hands of the Demo/MSM propaganda machine that is fomenting the disunity that propagates them — and Republicans had better start shining a light on that, as Donald Trump has done, rather than cowering behind a microphone.

Evidence of FBI Corruption

Here is a reprise of Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge standoff instigated by the unjust re-sentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond after they had already served time for a conviction that should never have happened. A bunch of ranchers from all over the Western U.S. came as a protest militia against the unjust actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). There were a few leaders of this rancher militia but the few headlines that made into the MSM placed Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan as the faces of BLM resistance. Ammon and Ryan were fresh off a successful standoff with their father Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

 

Here’s a rehash of the Hammonds’ BLM difficulties:

 

According to an October 7, 2015 press release from the Obama Department of Justice, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, both residents of Diamond, Oregon in Harney County, were sentenced to five years in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken for arsons they committed on federal lands.

The men were charged nearly a decade after the first fire and five years after the second.

 

Oregon Live reports on the fires:

 

The Hammonds’ run-ins with the government began in 1999, when Steven Hammond started a fire that escaped onto U.S. Bureau of Land Management territory. The intent of the fire was to burn off juniper and sagebrush that hindered the growth of grass for their cattle.

BLM employees reminded Steven Hammond that although his family leased public land for grazing, he couldn’t burn it without a permit. But in September 2001, the Hammonds started another fire. This one ran off their property on Steens Mountain, consumed 139 acres of public land and took the acreage out of production for two growing seasons, according to court papers.

Then in August 2006, lightning sparked several fires near the spot where the Hammonds grew their winter feed. Steven Hammond set a back-burn to thwart the advancing flames, and it burned across about an acre of public land, according to federal court records.

 

 

First, both men were sentenced in 2012 by now-retired U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan, following the trial. Steven received one year and a day in prison for setting fires in 2001 and 2006. Dwight got 3 months for his 2001 involvement. Hogan did not believe the men had malicious intent to be labeled as terrorists under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, even though he sentenced them to jail for the time he did.

 

 

Both men served their sentences and were released. Now, the feds have appealed those sentences and want the mandatory minimum five-year sentence imposed on the men, and so they appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who agreed with the feds that the judge ruled illegally. However, now they are wanting to label the Hammonds as terrorists under the 1996 law in order to put them back in jail.

NOW, after this rehash and couple it with the Obama Leftist corrupt regime which pushed much of the BLM land grabbing and rancher persecution; there are HUGE indications that the FBI has become so inculcated with Obama’s Leftist swamp, that they are severely a part of the problem to devastate the property rights of Ranchers.

 

Can you say, Communist redistribution in favor of State management?

SHERIFF BACKS CLAIMS OF FBI-LAWBREAKING IN OREGON STANDOFF

Documentary-makers release more evidence that raises questions

 

By BOB UNRUH

June 29, 2017

WND

 

The Hammond family

 

In a stunning development a year after the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, where two-dozen armed supporters gathered to protest the courts’ extension of sentences for two ranchers, a sheriff has backed claims of FBI misbehavior.

 

The declaration came from Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson just as FBI agent W. Joseph Astarita was pleading not guilty to three counts of making false statements and two counts of obstruction of justice in federal court in Portland, Oregon.

 

The FBI agent was accused of firing at the protesters, then picking up shell casings to conceal that fact and lying to investigators.

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon said Astarita falsely stated he had not fired his weapon during the attempted arrest of protester LaVoy Finicum, who was shot dead by another officer during the incident, “when he knew he had in fact fired his weapon.”

 

“Astarita also knowingly engaged in misleading conduct toward Oregon State Police officers by failing to disclose that he had fired two rounds during the attempted arrest,” the statement said.

 

Nelson said, as the Washington Times reported, that the actions by “multiple members of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team” had “damaged the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession, which makes me both disappointed and angry.”

Nelson said he told Justice Department and FBI officials, including now-acting Director Andrew McCabe, over a year ago about “possible criminal conduct” by some involved FBI Hostage Rescue Team agents.

 

And while the case against Astarita is in court, new evidence also is arising from the makers of an acclaimed documentary about the incident.

 

WND reported earlier on the armed standoff that has been variously described by opponents as “militia terrorism” and by defenders as rebellion against government tyranny.

 

The 41-day standoff ended in mass arrests after law enforcement fatally shot one of the occupiers.

 

The documentary is “American Standoff,” and while it aired previously on DirecTV, it can now be viewed in its entirety at this website. Among the people interviewed in the documentary is best-selling author and WND Vice President David Kupelian.

 

The “American Standoff” story starts with Dwight and Steven Hammond, Oregon ranchers who were controversially convicted and sentenced for setting a controlled land-management fire on their property that went out of control onto federal land. But after they served their sentences and were released, a judge – at a federal prosecutor’s insistence – ordered them back into court, where they were sentenced to further time in prison under an anti-terrorism law, even though there was no evidence presented that the ranchers had planned or engaged in terrorism in any way.

 

Sympathetic ranchers and others – encouraged by the federal government’s stand-down from a previous armed confrontation in Nevada two years earlier on the land of rancher Cliven Bundy – protested the new injustice and ended up staging an armed occupation of the refuge.

 

They succeeded in keeping federal officers at bay until they were finally taken into custody when police staged a highly dangerous highway stop of vehicles carrying the protesters and shot two men.

 

Ryan Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, was injured, while LaVoy Finicum was killed.

 

Eventually, seven of the others who were arrested were acquitted of federal charges related to the standoff. The feds even dismissed charges against a self-described independent broadcaster, Peter Santilli, who documented the occupation near Burns, Oregon, but was accused by prosecutors of being part of the protest group.

 

However, one of the FBI agents was charged with serious infractions of the law for the final confrontation. So far, Astarita is the only FBI agent to be indicted.

 

In addition to the feature-length “American Standoff” documentary, director Josh Turnbow and his film-making crew have now produced a series of “Aftermath” short video segments that have been posted online.

 

In the first, Jeanette Finicum, the widow of LaVoy Finicum, explains how the government, after killing her husband, also canceled the lease she needed to continue her family’s ranching operation.

 

She said she has lawyers fighting to restore the lease.

 

And she said a wrongful death case is inevitable against the government after a certain legal time period passes.

 

She insists her husband had his hands in the air and was surrendering but “was murdered.”

 

“He was mowed down in cold blood.”

 

Then, the video explains, the federal agents were “caught on camera, picking up casings before the forensic team arrived at the site of the shooting.”

 

Also, the video shows, Finicum’s gun, which he reportedly had been reaching for, wasn’t found for eight hours after the shooting.

 

“How many people tended to his body without finding it?” the video asks.

Turnbow told WND the “Aftermath” series continues the stories of people affected by the standoff.

In addition to conducting in-depth interviews with nearly everyone involved on all sides of the conflict, Turnbow said he tapped WND’s managing editor, David Kupelian, to offer a journalist’s perspective and analysis.

 

“I think Josh Turnbow did a terrific job in ‘American Standoff,’” said Kupelian, “not just in fairly and sensitively presenting all sides of a complex and troubling situation, but in telling a riveting, deeply thought-provoking true story about today’s America.”

 

Kupelian said the documentary “captures the classic modus operandi of an oppressive government: Perpetrate injustice, provoking widespread public outrage, which always includes a small number of people who seriously overreact and, however well-meaning, do something illegal or irresponsible – and then portray them as the real problem, or in this case as ‘criminals’ and ‘terrorists.’”

 

He said the main provocation in the story was “convicting two Oregon cattle ranchers, a father and son team whose controlled burn on their own property had gotten out of control and migrated onto federal land, with arson under an anti-terrorism statute that mandates a minimum five-year prison sentence.”

 

“Even the presiding judge said such a severe and unjust sentence would ‘shock the conscience.’ Well, it did shock the conscience of a lot of other ranchers – and the Malheur standoff was the result,” he said.

Turnbow said he would like to find out what really happened and consider what the outcome should have been, especially with regard to the still-imprisoned ranchers serving a five-year “terrorism” sentence.

 

“We should be talking about it,” Turnbow says.

 

The larger issue at hand – federal control over land in the American West – continues to loom large.

 

The federal government is the largest landowner in the Rocky Mountain and Western states, owning contiguous parcels of millions of acres.

 

Conflicts between ranchers, who in some instances have owned and worked their land for generations, and a federal government seemingly always hungry for more, are common.

 

President Trump’s recent executive order to review the possibility of shrinking the boundaries of federal monuments could help defuse the longstanding tensions between America’s ranchers and the government.

Ammon Bundy Tortured in Private Nevada Prison


John R. Houk

© May 10, 2017

 

Ammon and Ryan Bundy went to Oregon to offer moral support to the Hammond family for the unjust persecution that family received under the auspices of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The Bundys were fresh off their own standoff at the Bundy Ranch also being persecuted by the BLM.

 

In Oregon, Ammon Bundy became the apparent leader of a bunch of Western Ranchers who occupied the Federally operated Malheur Wildlife Reserve. The Bundys and several other ranchers as well as reporter Pete Santilli were all prosecuted at the end of that standoff that resulted in the police murder of LaVoy Finicum.

 

The majority of the Oregon defendants prosecuted over the Oregon standoff – including the Bundy brothers – were found NOT GUILTY by a jury of their peers.

 

As soon as the Bundys were exonerated, they along with their father Cliven, were arrested for the Bundy Ranch standoff that took place a couple of years prior to the Oregon standoff.

 

KEEP IN MIND, no one has been found guilty in accordance to the Federal case against the Bundys. The charges against the Bundys are quite similar to the very charges juries acquitted the Bundy brothers for in Oregon.

 

Ammon Bundy has been incarcerated, but not in a jail. Rather Ammon – who is innocent until proven guilty – has been incarcerated in a private prison under third world harsh conditions.

 

Ammon Bundy has been beaten, stripped and thrown into “the hole,” a form of deplorable solitary confinement.

 

This is Ammon Bundy’s story of prison persecution when still an innocent man under the U.S. Constitution.

Torture and Abuse of Ammon Bundy at For Profit Prison not Going Unnoticed

 

By TIM BROWN

MAY 9, 2017

Freedom Outpost

 

I have always questioned the need for prisons.  They are an unjust means of justice.  Even more so, those that are for profit utilize the system to make money and push for quotas to be fulfilled by the states.  Here is just one recent example of such abuses of prisoners.  Ammon Bundy, who became a national household name during the Bundy Ranch siege in 2014 and the protests at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon in 2016, was tortured and abused by a guard at CCA in Pahrump Nevada last week.  Subsequently, when word got out, the guard was sent home.

 

First, take a listen to a phone call from Ammon that was recorded as he was in solitary confinement (video courtesy of Kelli Stewart).

 

Facebook VIDEO: Ammon Bundy live from Solitary confinement
https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fbundyranch%2Fvideos%2F1329653397111465%2F&show_text=0&width=400
According to Bundy, he was handcuffed in a 3×3 foot shower for 13 hours, stripped naked and then thrown in the hole. This was all because he refused to allow a guard to take his shirt that was hanging off his bed, which the rules stipulate that nothing is to be hanging over the side. This was his only shirt to wear, and had it been taken, he would have not been allowed to come to breakfast.

 

Here are some photos provided by John Lamb of what these men, who have not been convicted of a crime have to endure.

 

Prisoners are constantly handcuffed and Shackled, even while being moved about throughout the prison itself. Strip searches just to be able to have video visits and many other inhumane treatments of unconvicted detainees while waiting trial.  Ammon Bundy and 18 other political prisoners in Nevada have been held for over a year and a half in these inhumane conditions while awaiting trail.

 

 

Prisoners that are kept in solitary confinement for weeks at a time are restricted with phone calls to family or even lawyer. This picture portrays a prisoner having to be on his knees while talking to his lawyer, while a guard dial the phone for him and hands it through a slot in the door, this is also were his food is passed through.

 

 

These are small cages that are a form of punishment and solitary confinement in a prison in Colorado. Being in solitary confinement doesn’t even mean you’ve been convicted of a crime, you could just be waiting on trial and violated a rule or get on a guards bad side and be put in one of these cages for up to 72 hours without sleep and the lights on constantly.

 

 

This photo gives you a small view of what a solitary confinement cell looks like in some prisons in America. But this does not do real justice to the inhumane treatment that Ammon Bundy just received in Prompt Nevada where he was kept handcuffed and naked for 13 hours with his hands behind his back in a cell that was 3 feet by 3 feet, and no food or water.

 

Stop and think about that for one moment. This is a man who has been acquitted on similar charges in Oregon that he is facing in Nevada. He has not been found guilty of any crime and yet, his rights are being abused day and night. Now, he’s being tortured and beaten.  Frankly, I’m not surprised that men are treated like animals in a society that has embraced the evolutionary nonsense that men are merely no better than brute beasts rather than those who are made in the image of God.  However, I am sickened to see it for myself, even for those who have been convicted.  This is not justice.  It is an inhumane cruelty.

 

On top of that, all of this that these men are enduring seem to be a clear violation of both the Fifth and Sixth Amendments of the US Constitution, which read:

 

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

 

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

 

They have been deprived of liberty and their life to some extent by sitting in this prison for profit for more than a year waiting on a “speedy and public trial.”

 

Both of Bundy’s shoulders were dislocated and he was forced to put them back in place on his own, according to his own testimony. He was then put in isolation with shackles on his bloody ankles.

 

Deb Jordan was able to visit with Ammon following the ordeal.

 

“He is painfully thin,” she wrote. “He told me that they beat him up pretty good, was sore, but was starting to gain back a little strength — He was able to raise his arms and move them about so he was gaining back a little mobility. His voice trembled sometimes and he spoke very softly .. I could tell he had a little trouble concentrating at times but otherwise he was alert and aware of his surroundings .. He was a bit pale but had color in his cheeks ..”

 

“While we were speaking they brought him his dinner and he was eatin,” she added. “I observed he had a small cut [not deep] on his wrist from the handcuffs and there was no bruising on his face or arms above his wrist that I could see. He is very weak and it is apparent he went through some major trauma not only physically but mentally.”

 

She asked for prayers for her husband and the family.

 

Supporters gathered outside the facility, which I was at to meet with Pete Santilli in January, and made calls to the sheriff in protest.

On Monday, Guerilla Media Network’s Deb Jordan informed followers on Facebook that the guard who targeted Ammon was sent home the next day and has not returned.

 

While that is good, the pressure should be maintained on the facility and the administration of that facility to ensure this guard never returns and that these men are kept safe.

 

In that vein, a petition for redress of grievance regarding the abuses at the Nevada Southern Detention Center has been set up and I encourage you to support the petition.  As of the writing of this article, there are just under 500 signatures.  I’ve put my name on it, will you do the same?  Click here to sign the petition.
