Justin Smith is a frequent contributor to a Facebook Group I created with a humongous unwieldy name. I called the Group Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists. The Group’s title explains the reason I formed it. I was tired of always landing in Facebook jail for my Conservative and Counterjihad posts which rub the Leftist Facebook gods the wrong way. The Group is small so feel to join if for any reason, simply to protest censorship of Conservatives, Counterjihad exposés and Pro-Israel thoughts.
I still land in Facebook Jail and receive censorship for insane reasons. The last time for actually posting too fast to other Facebook Groups. The time before that, for supporting Tommy Robinson who is being persecuted in the UK for exposing Muslim rapists and pedophiles. I actually believe my Robinson FB Jail stint was because I commented to a Leftie Brit who believed Robinson’s jail sentence was justified due to UK Hate Speech laws that protect Muslim insanity. I told the Brit defending UK law that “13 Colonies left the United Kingdom over Free Speech and oppressive laws.” Or at least something similar to that. Then BOOM, I was in Facebook Jail.
Enough about my motives, back to Justin Smith.
Yesterday Justin posted some thoughts and pointing toward other writers’ thoughts that I felt should be disseminated to a wider audience. Today I noticed Justin was busy at as well, but I’m sharing yesterday’s Justin thoughts. Where a title may not be obvious I’ll arbitrarily make one and I’ll probably toss some editing in also.

America’s Path, No Communist-No Islamic Path
Justin O. Smith
Although I am a strong advocate for Halting All Muslim Immigration, under the current state of our national politics and all the Muslim sympathizers and traitors to America in the Democratic Party, this won’t happen anytime soon, not soon enough. So, in the meantime, and if Conservatives take a majority in both houses of Congress in 2020, perhaps we can ensure that any future migrants from predominantly Muslim countries will be banned from becoming U.S. citizens.
Due to Democratic Party Communist political correctness and the Islamic supremacist incursion into America through groups like the Council for American Islamic Relations [CAIR] and the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA] among others, even open discussions about the impact of Muslim migration is a non-starter. Such discussions are now judged as “Islamophobic” and have been driven underground and stifled in mainstream conversation.
America shouldn’t be required to extinguish, eradicate, its own culture and traditions by Her communists and the current hordes of Islamofascists, all a conglomeration of secularists, atheists and Sons of Allah who hate America, the Constitution, freedom and Christianity. We used to keep communists out of America, and our cessation of that practice has enabled those enemies of America to subvert Her. Islam is just one more segment associated with such subversive and destructive efforts aimed at ending this republic.
America has been besieged by Islamization problems in every major city in our country, from Minneapolis to New York, Dearborn to Boston and Nashville and Dallas and even smaller cities like Murfreesboro, TN and Fairfax, Virginia, including the undermining of its culture. “Inclusion” of any group of people should never mean the sacrifice and elimination of one’s own traditions, culture and America’s heritage.
Each person who values freedom must demand that our leaders halt all Muslim immigration now, or pass legislation that forbids Muslims U.S. citizenship and any voice in the path forward for our nation, since the Islamic path isn’t an American path.

Trump’s Promises Not Kept

Before President Trump was elected, he made many disparaging remarks about NAFTA, and how disastrous it would be for Americans and would continue to be, and that if he was elected, he would renegotiate it to our benefit, or pull out of it.
United States, Mexico, Canada (USMCA)
Well…it has been renegotiated but certainly not to our benefit. It is far worse than NAFTA. Yet he is saying that it is a great deal, why? Well…let’s face it; it has to be that he is listening to his advisors; and practically all of them are either from the Swamp or they are connected with those who are. His current United States Trade Representative is Robert Lighthizer who is a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations, founded in 1921 and massively funded by the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation in the 1930s.
Who Makes the Rules
In a recent article by John Fonte, entitled, Who Makes the ‘Rules’ in a ‘Rules Based’ Liberal Global Order, he explains the massive irrational and obsessive hatred of President Trump by the Democratic Socialists and many of the neo-con Trotskyite Republicans. He explains, “The forces promoting global governance represent a serious actor, driver, or player in world politics. Transnationalism or globalism has an ideology and a social-material base. And, crucially, it has a strong American connection.” Transnationalism is the word now for globalism.
“The ideology is utopian, the age-old dream of worldwide peace and prosperity under a benevolent global regime. Further, the globalist project is bipartisan, in terms of both ideas and institutions.”
This is what President Trump is facing and there are countless numbers of these utopian dreamers who surround him. Just like the pitfalls of our President’s tax overhaul for American workers, written by the Director of the National Economic Council, globalist Gary Cohn, the USMCA contains massive perils to our sovereignty and is being promoted by CFR member Robert Lighthizer. (Regarding Trump’s magnificent economic tax bill, we must never allow the Democratic socialists to regain the presidency or both houses of Congress. If we do, the deductions we gave up will never come back, but our taxes will be raised.)
If the USMCA is ratified it will practically destroy everything that President Trump has accomplished. Not only will it bring in through the back door the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty, which was rejected by President Reagan and President Bush, it will open the gates for the United Nations to increase its domestic agenda through Agenda 2030. (The Law of the Sea Convention defines the rights and responsibilities of nations with respect to their use of the world’s oceans, establishing guidelines for businesses, the environment and the management of marine natural resources.)
The transnationalists were only too evident in NAFTA, and now again in the USMCA.
“The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs,” the president said in his most recent State of the Union Address. “It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place.”
However, big Pharma, according to reports, loves the “great deal” of NAFTA 2.0 (USMCA) which actually forbids the U.S. Congress from curtailing Big Pharma’s patent monopolies on some of the world’s most expensive drugs. In other words: Trump’s “America First” trade deal restricts U.S. sovereignty, for the sake of locking in high drug prices.
In addition, corporations that have used NAFTA to outsource hundreds of thousands of jobs to Mexico are thrilled that the revised deal’s labor and environmental terms are too weak to stop more job outsourcing. Both the U.S. and Canada say they want Mexican labor reform and no more sweat shops, that Mexico must equate its labor laws with those of the United States and Canada.
The USMCA would completely jeopardize our border security and sovereignty negotiated by Robert Lighthizer. Among the many land mines in this 2,325-page treaty are provisions protecting migrant rights and prohibiting numerical quotas on certain foreign workers. Imagine the havoc that U.S. federal judges or judges of USMCA tribunals or World Trade Organization tribunals could inflict with these provisions.
When President Trump spoke before the U.N. General Assembly, he really had the globalists worried when he said, “We will never surrender America’s sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy. America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.
What a wonderful statement – but then he said, “The United States is committed to making the United Nations more effective.” This was an absolute antithesis of his prior statement.
Call on President Trump, your senators, and representatives to oppose the USMCA before this dangerous venture gains any more momentum.

As Unbelievable as it seems, there is an actual movement in America’s education system called “RedforED”. That explains quite a bit, doesn’t it? ~ JOS
The Useful Idiots Will Always Be With Us

A recent pilgrimage by a “delegation” of three Chicago schoolteachers to Venezuela in a show of support for dictator Nicolas Maduro is a reminder that you truly cannot fix stupid. A stubborn strain of obtuseness runs through humanity that apparently no real-world demonstration of socialism’s horrors can eliminate. The saddest aspect of this spectacle, perhaps, is that the chosen vocation of these pathetic diehards extolling Maduro’s madness is educating America’s youth.
Despite a century’s experience in the abject failure of socialism’s economic policies, the mass slaughter that invariably accompanies it, and the societal wreckage left in its wake; there always seem to be those who tirelessly and inexplicably cling to the utopian aspirations of socialist tyrants. And there can always be found those, like these Chicago teachers, Michael Moore, Sean Penn, and others who can be called upon to trek to socialist hells like Venezuela and Cuba and come back with glowing reports of their success.
The phrase often used for these dupes is “useful idiots,” a term usually attributed to the founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin, although there exists some doubt over the term’s true provenance. It is apparently absent from Lenin’s writings. However, what’s not in doubt is that Lenin and his successor, Josef Stalin, did recognize the utility of these useful idiots in helping persuade others to believe that which is not so about the wonders of socialism/communism.
In fact, the trip by the Chicago schoolteachers is very reminiscent of a trip to the USSR organized by the Soviet government for a bunch of left-leaning American celebrity types (actors and writers) in the 1930s in order to fete them and show them the glories of Marxism-Leninism in action. They counted on these American rubes – think your 1930s equivalent of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders – to speak and write favorably of what they would see in Mother Russia. They were to dispel nasty rumors about millions of people starving to death in Stalin’s collectivization of Ukrainian farmland, which turned the Breadbasket of Europe into the Wasteland of the Soviets, not unlike the once oil-rich Venezuela becoming the beggar of South America. Of course, the rumors of millions in Ukraine dying were true, with estimates of the dead ranging from three to ten million. But hey, if you’re going to make an omelet…
The Windy City teachers, who proudly belong to the #RedForEd movement (I am not making this up) apparently have a blog called Radical Educator Collective. They also loudly proclaimed their membership in the Chicago Teachers Union, wore CTU hats in their Venezuela excursion pics and pimped a document called “CTU Resolution to Oppose the Invasion of Venezuela.” The three teachers, Sarah Chambers, V. Voeta Vargas, and Fabiana Casas, were joined by Teamster-turned-CTU union organizer Richard Berg. CTU, you must be so proud.
If the teachers’ grammar is any reflection of the quality of education that Chicago kids are receiving from this luddite group, perhaps we’d be better off if they’d remained in Caracas. Ms. Chambers, most recently (as far as I can tell) employed by the Maria Saucedo Scholastic Academy, an alleged “magnet school” for STEM kids, tweeted out this gem in response to a Twitter critic who took issue with her travel to Maduro’s paradise: “Have you visited Venezuela & spoke to 100s there? As a teacher, I teach my students to be critical thinkers, to get primary sources, listen to ppl’s stories & do research before just believing any news. I suggest you do the same.”
I hope she doesn’t teach English composition. In any event, it seems that Ms. Chambers may have been jettisoned by Maria Saucedo in 2017, so it’s not clear to me where she hangs her hammer and sickle right now. I haven’t readily been able to identify a more current employer.
As millions of people are fleeing Venezuela due to hyperinflation, starvation, disease, extrajudicial killings, and all the other joys of the Maduro regime, four never-say-die-to-socialism representatives of Chicago’s educator class headed into Venezuela in July, elbowing their way through the teeming hordes of Venezuelans fleeing in the opposite direction. Then they got their picture taken with Maduro apparatchiks, who must have wondered what was wrong in the head with these silly gringos.
In what sounds like a Saturday Night Live sketch, the Chicago Tribune said the quartet “wrote admiringly of its [Venezuela’s] socialism, its communes and high literacy rates.” Never mind the masses of people eating from dumpsters, with the average Venezuelan losing 19 pounds a year due to food shortages. And to think I’ve been doing Weight Watchers. Maybe my own excursion to the Paradise of Hugo Chavez would hasten my diminution.
The useful idiots who returned to America from the Soviet sojourn spoke admiringly of the Soviet experience with Marxism-Leninism too. They were probably a bit more effective in their propagandizing for that odious regime, though. New York Times reporter Walter Duranty consistently lied about true conditions in the USSR and in the process convinced President Roosevelt to recognize the Soviet regime in 1933. Duranty, now believed to have been a paid Soviet agent, actually won a Pulitzer prize in 1932 for his phony reports on the USSR. The Pulitzer Board looked at the issue of revoking the prize for Duranty’s fake news reports on the successes of Soviet collectivization in 2003 but, gosh darn it, just couldn’t see fit to rescind it. However, it did “extend its sympathies” to the millions of dead from Stalin’s policies. I’m sure that was comforting to Ukrainians.
The Left Coast has its own version of the Chicago teachers in the form of a California middle school teacher named Yvette Felarca. She was a prominent figure in a Marxist Antifa group called By Any Means Necessary, who assaulted a right-wing protester for carrying a sign at a rally that she didn’t like. She eventually sued Judicial Watch to stop its efforts to obtain her communications and disciplinary records. She lost, with the judge calling her suit “entirely frivolous” and ordering her to pay $26,000 in legal fees and expenses.
While these individuals do not represent the entirety of the education profession, of course, their extremism does give pause for concern. If America’s youth are not taught the true history of the carnage wrought by 100 years of communist and socialist pathology, they may be doomed to repeat it under an Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders or AOC.
