Falsehoods and Facts about the Middle East Forum: A Top Ten List


Unsurprisingly, the Middle East Forum (MEF) has been the recipient of Fake News lies all based on the Multiculturalist accusation of Islamophobia. Evidently the lies have become so huge that the MEF has decided to answer those lies with a Top Ten List.

 

Below is an email alert introduction to that Top Ten List which I will follow with cross post of that list.

Falsehoods and Facts about the Middle East Forum: A Top Ten List

Dear Reader:

As the Middle East Forum’s reach and influence expands, so too does the flurry of ad hominem, distorted, and plainly false attacks on the organization, mostly from Islamists and the far Left.

Institutions leading this assault include the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), J Street, Jewish Voices for Peace, and most recently the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. George Soros’ Open Society Foundations has a special place in our hearts for funding anti-MEF research.

Our opponents attack us for different reasons. Islamist activists loathe our national security views, advancement of women’s rights, and efforts to protect freedoms of moderate Muslim authors, activists, and publishers. Israel-haters oppose our efforts to puncture Palestinian illusions. Academics want to discredit our efforts to improve Middle East studies in North America. America-haters can pretty much take their pick of reasons.

Regardless of their motives, they all draw on the same tired canards that we so often refuted on an ad hoc basis. To save the curious some legwork, we are publishing a list of the top ten falsehoods, refuting them all at once, and maybe once and for all. Please take a look.

Regards,

Gregg Roman

Falsehoods and Facts about the Middle East Forum: A Top Ten List

 

August 9, 2017

Middle East Forum

 

The Middle East Forum (MEF) is the object of repeated falsehoods. To clear the record, here follows the top ten and our corrections.

 

Falsehood 1: The Middle East Forum is anti-Muslim, or “Islamophobic.”

 

False Statements

 

Center for American Progress: “The Middle East Forum is at the center of the Islamophobia network.”

 

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): Daniel Pipes is “considered by many Muslims to be America’s leading Islamophobe.”

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center: Daniel Pipes is “at the center of what is a large and evolving network of Islam-bashing activists.”

 

Fact 1: Far from being biased against Muslims, MEF challenges a radical ideology responsible for unfathomable Muslim suffering, and one which most Muslims reject. Middle East Forum President Daniel Pipes has been emphasizing the distinction between Islamism and the Islamic religion – and between the “completely justified fear of Islamists and unjustified fear of all Muslims” – for decades.

 

The only people who maintain there is little or no distinction between detesting Islamism and detesting Muslims are Islamists themselves and fellow travelers of the sort quoted above. The “Islamophobia” accusations they level at MEF and others are designed to conflate Islamism and Islam, claiming an attack on one is an attack on the other.

 

This conflation also attempts to delegitimize non-Islamist Muslims working to free their faith from the grip of extremists, and it is no coincidence that Muslim reformers are often viciously attacked. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a far-left organization known for its often inaccurate claims, lists Maajid Nawaz of the Quilliam Foundation alongside Mr. Pipes as an “anti-Muslim extremist.”

 

The SPLC has branded Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz as an “anti-Muslim extremist.”

 

A lot of money finances these allegations. The Center for American Progress, for example, received a $200,000 grant from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) to “research and track the activities” of the Middle East Forum and other NGOs working to combat the spread of radical Islam in America. The Brookings Institution’s recent focus on so-called “Islamophobia” in America likely has much to do with its decade-long partnership with Qatar, which provided it with a $14.8 million 4-year grant in 2013.

 

The latest organization to level the “Islamophobia” accusation at MEF is the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF), which lashed out after we revealed publicly that it had provided $330,524 to two extremist organizations, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief. It turns out SVCF is getting paid too. According to its 990 form, the extremist International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) provided SVCF with $500,000 in “program assistance” in 2015.

 

Falsehood 2: Daniel Pipes regards Muslim organizations as subversive.

 

False Statements

 

Jewish Voice for Peace: “Pipes views almost every possible Muslim activity as subversive and threatening.”

 

Center for American Progress: “The alarmist rhetoric of Daniel Pipes … brand[s] Muslims, Sharia, and even the instruction of Arabic as affronts to American freedom.

 

Fact 2: In keeping with Mr. Pipes’ oft-repeated belief that “radical Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution,” MEF’s Islamist Watch project was established with a mission to “expose the Islamist organizations that currently dominate the debate, while identifying and promoting the work of moderate Muslims.”

 

MEF has a long history of supporting, employing, and collaborating with Muslims working to free their community and faith from the grip of Islamists.

 

See a list here of Muslim organizations the Forum regards as vital allies in this fight, some of whom it helps fund.

 

Falsehood 3: Pipes supports interning Muslims, akin to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

 

False Statements

 

Jewish Voice for Peace: “The Southern Poverty Law Center notes that ‘Pipes endorsed the internment of Muslims in America,’ referencing WWII Japanese American concentration camps as a model to be used against Muslims today.”

 

Silicon Valley Community Foundation: “Daniel Pipes, president of Middle East Forum, has written in support of the model of Japanese internment camps in relation to American Muslims.”

 

Fact 3: This canard is a paradigmatic example of how charges initially levelled by one radical organization metastasize through repetition by others. The SPLC report misquoted at right by Jewish Voice for Peace actually states, “In 2004, Pipes endorsed the internment of ethnic Japanese in American prison camps in World War II and held that up as a model for dealing with Muslims today.”

 

But even this isn’t true. In 2005 an Islamist organization in Canada had to apologize and make a charitable donation to the Middle East Forum for making this claim.

 

The original article did not argue for internment camps as a model (a follow-up explaining how CAIR and others distorted Pipes’ position can be read here), but rather concluded with support for author Michelle Malkin’s thesis about threat profiling: “She correctly concludes that, especially in time of war, governments should take into account nationality, ethnicity, and religious affiliation in their homeland security policies.”

 

Falsehood 4: MEF is wrong to label CAIR as “terrorism-linked.”

 

Clockwise from top left: Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan Elashi, Bassem Khafagi, Rabih Haddad, Nabil Sadoun, and Muthanna Al-Hanooti

 

Fact 4: Here are many reasons why MEF can reasonably describe CAIR as “terrorism-linked.”

 

  • CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial.

 

  • During that trial, U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis concluded that, “The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR…with Hamas.”

 

  • In 2014, the United Arab Emirates, a Muslim ally of the United States, designated CAIR a terrorist organization.

 

 

  • CAIR itself implicitly acknowledged the truth when it settled a 2004 libel lawsuit against a group making this allegation called Anti-CAIR, with no apology, retraction, or removal of offending Internet materials.

 

Falsehood 5: CAIR, Islamic Relief, and other Muslim groups criticized by MEF are respectable civil rights organizations.

 

False Statements

 

Jewish Voice for Peace: “Contrary to the Middle East Forum’s smear campaign, CAIR is a nationally-recognized civil rights organization that has received praise from seventeen U.S. Senators and 85 U.S. Representatives from both sides of the political aisle.”

 

Fact 5: CAIR and Islamic Relief are focused on promoting social insularity and distrust of authorities among U.S. Muslims, not defending their civil rights. In fact, both groups frequently host and promote extremist speakers who advocate against civil rights as most Americans understand them.

 

Siraj Wahhaj, for example, preaches that homosexuality is a “disease” of society, that the punishment for adultery is death, and that Muslims shouldn’t have non-Muslim friends. Omar Suleiman has rationalized honor killings, telling women thinking of promiscuity that they could be killed by their fathers for “offending Allah.” Jamal Badawi has said that men have a right to beat their wives. Abdul Nasir Jangda has argued that they have the right to rape their wives.

 

Falsehood 6: CAIR and Islamic Relief have clean bills of health on links to terrorism from the federal government and from charity watchdogs.

 

False Statements

 

Silicon Valley Community Foundation: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief … are nonprofit organizations in good standing with federal agencies, and do not appear on any U.S. government list as having been tied to terrorism.”

 

Silicon Valley Community Foundation: “GuideStar reports … whether a nonprofit organization is identified as a ‘Specially Designated National’ on the Office of Foreign Asset Control’s list. In simpler terms, this is the list of U.S. organizations designated as having links to terrorist organizations. Neither CAIR nor Islamic Relief is on this list.”

 

Fact 7: MEF is a research institution that promotes American interests. Islamist Watch presents factual research on the influence and activity of non-violent U.S.-based Islamist groups and their leaders. Some oppose Israel, to be sure, but most are more focused on targeting women, homosexuals, and others.

 

Campus Watch researches, analyzes, and critiques the academic study of the Middle East. It argues against “analytical failures, the mixing of politics with scholarship, intolerance of alternative views, apologetics, and the abuse of power over students,” but it accepts divergent perspectives. Campus Watch recently published a favorable review of a lecture at the City University of New York (CUNY) by Sari Nusseibeh, a former senior PLO representative under Yasser Arafat whose views hardly qualify as pro-Israeli. A cursory examination of the project’s research articles demonstrates that the characterization of Campus Watch as Israel-centered is false. As for the “dossiers,” CW took down those initial eight profiles 15 years ago in favor of an institution-focused survey method.

 

Falsehood 8: Daniel Pipes and the Middle East Forum have funded the political campaigns of Dutch right-wing leader Geert Wilders.

 

False Statements

 

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “David Horowitz and Daniel Pipes are reported to have put some $150,000 of foundation money into his campaign.”

 

Fact 8: Not a penny from Daniel Pipes or the Middle East Forum has gone to Wilders personally, his political party, or his campaign.

 

MEF did provide a grant to pay legal bills in Mr. Wilders’ trial over his film on radical Islam.

 

As the New York Times notes: “the funds that were sent to Geert Wilders were to help him in his legal cases and were not political donations.”

 

Falsehood 9: Campus Watch seeks to stifle academic freedom.

 

False Statements

 

CAIR: Campus Watch [is] part of a larger anti-intellectual campaign aimed at regulating discourse on the Middle East.

 

Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, The Nation: Campus Watch is “neo-McCarthyite” and part of the “New McCarthyism” that seeks to silence anyone with whom it disagrees.

 

Fact 9: Campus Watch critiques contemporary Middle East studies, which years ago jettisoned rigorous scholarship and teaching for politicized, biased, and inferior work. There is nothing wrong with scrutinizing and criticizing academic research.

 

No cliché is more hackneyed, no charge intellectually lazier than that CW engages in “McCarthyism” (see right). Unlike the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy, Campus Watch—a private organization—neither possesses nor seeks the ability to silence or persecute anyone.

 

Only in the fevered imaginations of some professors do rigorous critiques by outsiders equate with an anti-Communist witch-hunt.

 

Falsehood 10: Daniel Pipes has lost the support of his former academic colleagues

 

False Statements

 

Al Jazeera [interviewing a spokesman from the Center for American Progress]: Pipes has a “scholarly background, but … he has lost the support of many of the people he used to work with, and associate with, when he was a well-respected scholar.”

 

Fact 10: Mr. Pipes never stopped being a “well-respected scholar” When President George W. Bush nominated him to the board of directors of the U.S. Institute of Peace in 2003, 30 academics signed a letter in support of the appointment. For a more recent example, Professor Edward Alexander of the University of Washington lavished praise in 2016 on Pipes’ Nothing Abides.

 

That said, it is true that a radicalized academia condemns Pipes and the Forum for their mainstream outlook – and especially for their role in exposing the failure of Middle East studies.

MEF About Page

 

With roots going back to 1990, the Middle East Forum has been an independent tax-exempt 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization based in Philadelphia since 1994.

 

Mission

 

The Middle East Forum promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects Western values from Middle Eastern threats.

 

The Forum sees the region — with its profusion of dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, corruption, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction — as a major source of problems for the United States. Accordingly, we urge bold measures to protect Americans and their allies.

 

In the Middle East, we focus on ways to defeat radical Islam; work for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; develop strategies to contain Iran; and deal with the great advances of anarchy.

 

At home, the Forum emphasizes the danger of lawful Islamism; protects the freedoms of anti-Islamist authors, activists, and publishers; and works to improve Middle East studies.

 

Methods

 

The Middle East Forum realizes its goals through three main mechanisms:

 

  • Intellectual: The Forum provides context, insights, and policy recommendations through the Middle East Quarterly, staff writings, public lectures, radio and television appearances, and conference calls (see below for details).

 

  • Operational: The Forum exerts an active influence through its projects, including Campus Watch, Islamist Watch, Legal Project, Washington Project, Apartheid Monitor, and Shillman/Ginsburg Writing Fellowship Program (see below for details).

 

  • Philanthropic: The Forum annually distributes US$1.5 million in earmarked donations through its Education Fund, helping researchers, writers, investigators, and activists around the world.

 

Activities

 

 

MEForum.org (this website) hosts a complete archive of Middle East Quarterly articles; articles by MEF staff; audio recordings and summary accounts of guest lectures and conference calls; and MEF alerts for Forum events, media appearances, and news releases.

 

Middle East Quarterly, published since 1994 and edited by Efraim Karsh, it is the only scholarly journal on the Middle East consistent with mainstream American views. Delivering timely analyses, cutting-edge information, and sound policy initiatives, it serves as a valuable resource for policymakers and opinion-shapers.

 

Public Outreach. Television and radio rely on Forum specialists, who appear on virtually all the major American over-the-air and cable news programs, plus stations around the globe. MEF staff also brief ranking officials of the U.S. government, testify before Congress, and conduct studies for executive branch agencies.

King Calls For Wider Investigations of Obama, Clinton, Comey, Soros, Lynch, Abedin, and Weiner Scandals

 

Jul 27, 2017

Press Release

SteveKing.House.gov

 

Congressman Steve King released the following video of statements he made during Judiciary Committee debate of legislation requiring the Attorney General to provide copies of any document, record, audio recording, memo, correspondence, or other communication that refers or relates to a number of troubling aspects of James Comey’s tenure as FBI director.

 

In the course of his remarks, Congressman King recounted a litany of facts and events that reveal the corruption that surrounds many of the nation’s most prominent Democrats, as well as their disturbing pattern of using American taxpayer money to interfere in foreign elections. King’s entire remarks can be viewed here.

 

King concluded his remarks by asserting the trail of Democratic election corruption leads to Barack Obama, and that the examples he cites should be investigated fully.

 

Excerpted remarks:

 

On Barack Obama’s election interference in other countries:

 

“It’s pretty clear the Obama administration sent their people over to Israel to work against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Pretty much openly. Significant dollars invested in that campaign over there. The President of the United States, with at least the moral support of the people that had worked for him, in the country of Israel, [sought] to shift the results of the election against the seated Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu.”

 

 

“The Obama administration is a long ways from clean on this, as far as being involved in elections in other countries.”

 

On George Soros’ Use of Taxpayer Money to interfere in election in the Balkans:

 

learned the United States government, borrowing money from China and Saudi Arabia, had handed over at least $5,000,000 in contracts transferred through USAID into George Soros’s organizations that were used to manipulate elections in the Balkans.”

 

On the need to reopen investigations into Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner:

 

The long string that we should be looking at with this investigation and special counsel that is our request here goes a long ways back. It goes clear back to Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, 650,000 emails, which we still have access to.”

 

On James Comey’s sham investigation of Hillary Clinton:

 

This [Comey’s Investigation of Clinton] is what looks like, on its face, a sham investigation. Plus, they destroyed a tremendous amount of information: at least 30,000 emails, crushed hard drives, bought bleach bit, hired outside contractors to scrub emails up. And we’re to take James Comey’s word for this, that there wasn’t enough substance there to bring a prosecution, even though a year ago, July 5th, James Comey delivered 15 minutes of a summary of prosecution that was completely convincing to me until we got down to the last couple sentences of that presentation which was, ‘well, we can’t prove intent.’ Well, curiously there is no requirement for intent in the two statutes that appear to be violated.”

 

I look back in the records to the previous October and previous April, Barack Obama stated into the news media record ‘Hillary Clinton would never intend to put our national security at risk; Hillary Clinton would never intend to harm America’s security. That’s the previous October and April. Well, James Comey latched onto that word, ‘intend’, and they made up new law and gave Hillary Clinton an exemption for this intent that they said they couldn’t prove which is absolutely proven by the facts [Comey] delivered to us in the summary that day.”

 

On Loretta Lynch:

 

“Not only does this trail lead through Hillary Clinton and James Comey, but the Loretta Lynch component of this as well. When you put this in place, and look at the example of them on the tarmac, it’s hard to imagine they sat there for 45 minutes and discussed grandchildren.”

 

On allegations Democratic Operatives went to the Ukraine to get dirt on Candidate Trump:

 

“That brings me to Alexandra Chalupa who went off as a DNC contractor to Ukraine to try to gather dirt on the Trump people. So, bringing this around, Mr. Chairman, I’ll conclude with this: the trail leads also to Barack Obama and we need to investigate all of this.”

Sedition: U.S. Intelligence Community Prepping For Soft Coup


Michael DePinto writing for Freedom Outpost explains the danger the Dems and the Mainstream Media (MSM) are doing to America sowing lies as truth. Even worse, DePinto demonstrates CIA collaboration with the American Left imputing lies as truth against President Trump. DePinto calls this collaboration a “Soft Coup.” I call it a Deep State act of treason.

Sedition: U.S. Intelligence Community Prepping For Soft Coup

 

By MICHAEL DEPINTO

JULY 12, 2017

Freedom Outpost

 

Sadly, because of how dishonest the mainstream media is, most Americans do not realize the severity of the divide that presently exists within this country and the lengths to which the far-left is willing to go to remove President Trump from office. For that reason, anyone in the alternative media who attempts to warn people of the potential for “civil war,” or for “martial law” is regarded as “conspiracy theorist.”

 

There are, however, a very small and select few in the mainstream media that recognize the gravity of the situation, and realize how dangerous the situation is becoming. Monica Crowley recognized the far-left’s agenda for what it was right from the start. She’s often said:

 

“There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign underway against this president, his administration and his agenda…. these forces are not just looking to delegitimize him.. they want to personally destroy himdestroy his presidency and they would like to see the man in prison!”

 

Sean Hannity has been one of the only other figures in the mainstream media who actually recognizes the movement by the far-left for what it is: Prelude to revolution. Referring to the massive amount of censorship taking place in this country right now, and the all out assault on free speech against anyone trying to spread the truth by warning the American people about what’s coming, Sean said:

 

“There is now a coordinated attempt to silence the voice of every outspoken conservative in this country. If we don’t stop it right now, there won’t be any conservative voices on radio or television left.

 

Liberal fascism is alive lie and well in America today. Their goal is simple. They want to shut up and shut down, completely silence all conservative voices by any means necessary. Here’s the difference. Unlike the left, I don’t have any problem with what the other side says. If you want to listen to liberals on radio or TV, read their articles, follow them on social media, go for it

 

So let me be clear tonight. Everyone who publicly supported President Trump is a target. This is very political. We have seen repeatedly that the left knows no limits in these efforts. They have gone after and attacked the first lady; they have attacked members of the president’s family, every White House advisor. They’ve even attacked his daughter and his 10-year-old son.

 

Right now, the United States is a giant powder-keg that could blow at any moment, and that is precisely what global agitators like George Soros and his lackeys within the deep state would love to see happen. In the following video Right Wing News reviews recent developments, and explains why now more than ever is the time for people to be preparing for when things inevitably go sideways…

READ THE REST

 

State of the Nation writes:

 

Deep State will not stop their stealthy Purple Revolution until Trump is gone

 

C.I.A. using Mainstream Media to run propaganda campaign against Trump Administration—24/7

 

“The C.I.A. always softens up the citizenry of a targeted country before a soft coup.  If that doesn’t work, they simply execute a covert but violent overthrow via assassination like they did with JFK.  Lastly, they will resort to an outright attack on the key organs of government authority and/or military power, but only when absolutely necessary.”

— Veteran Intelligence Analyst

 

Do you get it yet?

 

The NWO globalist entity known as Deep State, along with the Democratic Party, will — under no conditions — accept Donald Trump as the legitimate President of the United States of America.  For that matter, neither will the many RINOs within the Republican Party.

 

Because of this unrelenting predicament, there is no stopping the USS Donald Trump from hitting the iceberg.  You cannot thwart destiny when it’s preordained in such a profound and fundamental way.  After all, the welfare and continuity of the American Republic is at stake.

 

By the way, no one said that Trump is at the helm of a 21st century Titanic.  He may just be the captain of a humongous icebreaker.   Only time will tell, however, and that time is fast approaching.

 

RUSSIA SCARE: C.I.A. Running PsyOp On The American People

 

For the uninitiated, ever since Election Day on November 8, 2016, The Company (aka the C.I.A.) has been very busy implementing “Plan B”, often referred to as the Purple Revolution. Understanding the true purpose and key players behind this highly organized plot is crucial if it to be averted.  As follows: BEWARE: The Purple Revolution Comes To America

 

This seditious revolution has several pillars that define both its strategy and MO.  The whole world is watching daily the “Russia scare” strategy.  Deep State knows that the Russian boogeyman was effective during the Cold War so why should they reinvent the wheel?

 

The following exposé details some of the subterfuge by Deep State and their agents within the Democratic Party which gave rise to the bogus “Russian hacking claim”.  In the face of so much MSM fake news about Russia, who will now believe the obvious truth in this post?

 

C.I.A. and MSM: Fric & Frac of Deep State

 

Truly, no one has ever seen anything like it.  The C.I.A. uses their primary organs of propaganda — CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS — to run an unprecedented propaganda war against a sitting POTUS.  Likewise, the spook agency uses every major newspaper of record — especially The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles Times — to float patently false accusations and deliberately misleading headlines on their front pages.

 

KEY POINT: Even Nixon was not subjected to such a daily barrage of fake news during the height of Watergate.  And, “Yes!”, much of that media hysteria was also contrived fake news, produced to facilitate his premeditated removal which was in actuality a soft coup.

 

The CIA knows full well how to execute a color revolution.  They’ve carried out many around the globe over several decades.  Their trademark MO is to sufficiently frighten the citizenry about dangers of their current government or leader.   This is why the American people are now treated to a nonstop campaign of Trump-bashing by the MSM.  The CIA is aware that eventually, a critical mass of citizens will actively participate in an overthrow. And that many who don’t will at least lend their moral support to it.

 

The false story about ‘Russia election hacking’, of course, was the perfect pretext for the U.S. Intelligence Community to rally around.  Agents in all 17 agencies could be compelled to go with the flow — seditious flow — because the POTUS was said to be working with America’s historical enemy — R U S S I A!  Throw in a Democratic Party that is still beside itself with rage and madness about Hillary’s defeat and you have a full-blown Purple Revolution in the works. See the following link for valuable perspective: Former Democrat Insider Goes Rogue—Exposes Plot To Falsely Blame Russia

 

This total scam being run on the American people is not unprecedented.  Both World Wars of the last century saw similar war propaganda being thrown about here, there, and everywhere.  That’s just how it’s always done.  They did it against Germany prior to World War II after they demonized the Kaiser prior to World War I.

 

The salient point here is that it is now Putin who is being vilified and Russia that is being represented as a mortal enemy of the West.  Nothing could be further from the truth, and yet a vast majority of Americans believe the lies. Whenever a really big lie is repeated frequently, it starts to sink in.  That’s what CNN and NBC are all about today.  So are the NYT and WaPo.  Their CIA masters in Deep State know all of the best mind-control programs, as well as the magic formulas for effective war propaganda.

 

The MSM and C.I.A. are guilty of sedition

 

There’s one major advantage that the President has at this pivotal stage of the Purple Revolution. The MSM now commits sedition on a weekly basis.  The C.I.A. likewise openly perpetrates treason against the nation.  These traitors to the American Republic expose themselves regularly because they think they can act with impunity.  This public display of arrogance and hubris has never happened before in the USA.

 

As a consequence, the MSM can legally be shut down with one executive order.  The C.I.A. can be dissolved with one stroke of the presidential pen.  Even the FCC can close down various MSM organs of propaganda for blatantly violating various rules and regulations. The law is squarely on the side of the FCC in this regard.

 

Hence, the longer that Trump permits the traitors to out themselves for all to see, the more of them he can get rid of when the time is right.  That moment is fast approaching as Deep State is getting closer to pressing the button on stage 2 of the 2017 revolution.  Their implementation plan has been designed according to a set schedule which sees this Fall as a crucial phase of the Purple Revolution.

 

What began with a clandestine partnership between George Soros and Hillary Clinton back in 2016 has evolved into a full-blown conspiracy to bring down the U.S. Federal Government under President Trump.

 

DO NOT MISS: Soros: Western Society Must Fall Before One World Govt Can Be Established 

 

Clearly, the growing insurrection against Trump has many disparate liberal organizations and powerful progressives supporting them.  As always, George Soros is front and center in this treasonous plot.

  

Therefore, he should be arrested post haste for contributing to so much personal injury, including numerous deaths, as well as extensive property damage. The Clintons And Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution

 

Conclusion

 

Where is this all going?

 

God only knows.

 

If the American people do not soon demand an end to the violence and brash lawbreaking, the perps will only become more emboldened.  The leftwing Bolsheviks will intensify their insurgency nationwide.  They will inevitably increase the number of rioters and protesters — from the ranks of so many disillusioned illegal aliens — who are quite willing to disrupt civil society.

 

The Bolshevik Left now demonstrates an unparalleled willingness to harm people and destroy property never seen within the body politic.  Their use of agents provocateur has become transparent to even the most naive and uninformed.  Hence, President Trump is completely within his power to immediately prosecute all of those culpable agents of Deep State.

 

These reckless subversives are cut from the same RED bolt of cloth as those who incited the Bolshevik Revolution.  In fact, the Left is becoming more vicious and violent by the event.  Just as their ilk terrorized the major cities throughout Russia in 1917, they use the same savage tactics in 2017 across the USA.

 

Exactly 100 Years After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917→Comes the Percolating Purple Revolution of 2017

 

One thing is for sure: the C.I.A. will not stop this uprising until Trump is frogmarched out of the White House.  The question then remains: What will the patriots and nationalists do?

Bill O’Reilly: My Firing Was ‘a Hit’ by the Far Left


Newsmax has chastised me in the past for cross posting whole articles from their website; ergo I have avoided the practice. I received a Newsmax email in which the text was posted in entirety rather than a link. I am taking the email as permission to post.

 

The Newsmax email is an update on Bill O’Reilly’s intentions after being discharged from Fox News including the info that the situation was due to a Leftist conspiracy to get him fired. O’Reilly cites George Soros as the Left-Wing puppeteer pulling the Leftist strings.

Bill O’Reilly: My Firing Was ‘a Hit’ by the Far Left

Newsmax Email

Sent 5/12/2017 3:32 PM

 

Bill O’Reilly broke his silence Friday in his first interview since being fired by Fox News, saying his dismissal was “a hit” caused by the “destroying voices” of the “far left.”

“This was a hit and in the weeks to come we’re going to be able to explain some of it,” O’Reilly told “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

Last month, Fox News parted ways with O’Reilly after a series of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior claims leveled against him in recent years. The New York Times had reported that five women received large payments in exchange for not pursuing litigation or speaking about the accusations.

Important: Author Says Bill O’Reilly ‘Murdered in Cold Blood,’ Trump Is Next – More Below! [This was supposed to be a link to David Horowitz’s book, “Big Agenda”. Here is the text that leads to the Horowitz book. The text is lengthier in the Newsmax email.]

O’Reilly said Fox was pressured by left-wing activists who came in and threatened sponsors unless they stopped running commercials on the highly-rated “O’Reilly Factor.”

He said he and his legal team would soon be naming names of those they believe are behind a plot to get him fired. But he named liberal billionaire businessman George Soros as one of the chief funders against conservative opinion.

“There’s going to be an exposition soon but I can’t tell you when … I was target No. 1, it’s sad for me, it’s sad for my family … From now on, when I ‘m attacked I’m going to take action, mostly legal action,” he said.

O’Reilly said he was returning to the United States from a trip to Rome and the Vatican when he learned he had been dismissed by the Fox News Channel.

“My attorneys told me and we were all shocked … I had 20 good years at FNC. We were caught by surprise, but it’s [Fox’s] prerogative,” he told Beck.

“People know that the left-wing media hates Fox and hates me … but they don’t know the extent of it… We’re accumulating information and someday it will all be clear.”

O’Reilly also attacked the press, saying some media outlets are as “evil as it gets.” He chastized Beck for believing news reports that he had received a $25 million kiss-off from Fox.

“In American journalism right now, very few are seeking the truth. What they do … is come up with this scenario and try to reinforce that,” he said.

Asked about this week’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, O’Reilly said there were several reasons President Donald Trump had acted.

“Trump does not trust James Comey … He doesn’t like the fact that Comey is unpredictable [and] … that Comey would not aggressively investigate the leaks that have plagued the Trump administration,” O’Reilly said.

But he also criticized the White House for being too “undisciplined” in its day-to-day management.

“The Trump administration always makes mistakes by being undisciplined … The messaging is always the problem … [White House Press Secretary Sean] Spicer’s just weak,” O’Reilly said.

He said the “straight press, the journalists, the hard news reporters, they now are devoting most of their time to destroying Donald Trump.”

“They hate him, by extension anybody who gives Trump a fair play, anybody, is going to be attacked as well … There’s this monolithic and very powerful industry that’s developed to get Trump out of office,” O’Reilly said.

 
“On the left you get, ‘We’re going to take him out.’ … That’s what the New York Times wants to do … This dishonesty in the media is harming this country.”

Antifa: What Do You Want? Something For Nothing?


Justin Smith sent a submission that he termed his rant against Antifa. The Antifa groups are Leftist anarchists that use violence and intimidation to make the rule of law ungovernable. I am absolutely on board with Justin’s very justifiable venting against the American Leftist to transform America by any means necessary.

Antifa: What Do You Want? Something For Nothing?

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/6/2017 11:37 AM

 

The “AntifaFASCIST protestors who took to the streets of America during the past few weeks and in Nashville, TN on May 1st — part of a movement that’s growing in the U.S. — are the same people who are constantly demanding that government give them more entitlements and less work. These aren’t rebels; they’re willing participants in a perpetual government charade. These days, real rebels fight for the freedom to be left alone.

 

The reason why these so-called “anti-fascists” aren’t willing to fight for true independence is that they want to cherry-pick the nature of government intervention in their lives. They want the nanny-state to take care of them, but they also want to dictate its red lines. It’s like raising a great white shark and then trying to teach it how to swim with you. And with the Progressive Communists of the Democratic Party facilitating and tacitly approving these anti-American bastard’s violence and treason, we’re at the “this thing had better not chew through its’ harness” phase of the swimming lesson.

 

I pray I’m wrong. I see a massive Civil War in America’s future. [Blog Editor – 2nd Civil War Perspectives by author name: Dennis Prager, Daniel Lang and Jeff Vandaveer]

 

What do You want? Something for nothing?

 

We all have the Right to go about our daily lives and work for the things we want. With 100 million on welfare, most who are able-bodied and gaming the welfare system, no one is truly “poor” in any real sense of the word — not when they all have cellphones and half of them are hittin’ 200lbs from too many potato chips and donuts.

 

You want to see really poor and starving people? Just look at Venezuela where the Socialist system has run out of OTHER PEOPLE’s money and the people are STARVING TO DEATH IN THE STREETS OR BEING SLAUGHTERED BY THOSE IMMORAL ENOUGH TO SIMPLY MURDER AND ROB FOR WHAT THEY WANT.

 

Your Antifa is funded by Alliance for Global Justice, Refuse Fascism, the Tides Foundation and billionaire George Soros. These are ALL COMMUNISTS, and Your tactics surely do not appear to be “fighting fascism”. You ARE THE FASCISTS and Communists My Father fought in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

 

Socialism and Communism NEVER HAVE worked SINCE February 1848. In Their WAKE LIE 120 MILLION TORTURED AND MURDERED VICTIMS OF THEIR FLAWED AND FAILED IDEOLOGY.

 

Whether You comprehend it or not, Our Constitutional Republic has created more economic prosperity and individual liberty for MORE AMERICANS AND PEOPLE WORLDWIDE THAN ANY OTHER SYSTEM IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF MANKIND. AND THAT IS A PROVEN, VERIFIABLE HISTORICAL FACT.

 

Your group is seeking change simply for the sake of change, while being manipulated by the Communist Internationale. If You truly stand for Freedom and Liberty You will leave Antifa and set Your sights on stopping the Progressive Communist Statists in BOTH THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES, who seek to control over every aspect of All Our lives, and circumvent and subvert the U.S. Constitution through legislative tyranny and rules within bureaucracies.

 

Eradicate the Federal Reserve Bank, back Our currency with Gold or Silver again, Kill the Income Tax and the IRS, and withdraw from the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund and great economic strides will readily occur for all Americans as Our economy once again could thrive as intended.

 

But if Antifa seeks war with honest God-fearing American citizens, who love this country and their Families and have a strong understanding of the reasons Our constitutional republic is still the BEST Thing going, then I aim to stack Antifa bodies ten feet high to the Left and Right of me and ALL Around for as FAR as the Eye Can See.

 

God Bless All Who Fight for Freedom and Individual Liberty and God Bless Our Beloved America.

Is Deep State Conspiracy Unraveling?


justice-drain-deep-state

Compiled by John R. Houk

March 4, 2017

 

You’d think after the election cycle that the Dems would be content to stall the GOP/Trump agenda by whatever legal means necessary, right?

 

Unfortunately, it is becoming clear that the Soros/Obama and probably Clinton faction of the Dems have become so unhinged for losing to President Trump that between November 8, 2016 and Inauguration Day January 20, 2017; the Leftist Moonbats conspired a shadow government disruption of the Trump Administration.

 

So, the question every American that honors America’s Founding Documents should be, “WHY?”

The “Deep State” Strikes Again

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

 

Eminating [sic] from the “deep state,” another “scandal” has been created. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has just held a news conference. It is much ado about nothing.

 

This will never end until and unless Trump cleans house. DRAIN THE SWAMP

 

INVESTIGATE THE LEAKS!!!

 

My new column, The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump, identifies the person in the press getting the leaks. START WITH HIM!!!  He is a mouthpiece for the CIA.

 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff have approved the Scope of Investigation for the inquiry by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence into the Russian active measures campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election.

 

One of the issues is: What possible leaks of classified information took place related to the Intelligence Community Assessment of these matters?

 

There is an easy way to answer this: subpoena the Post columnist getting the leaks. We know who he is. Read my column.

 

Do you believe in elected constitutional government? Or should the “deep state” run our affairs as a nation?

 

A great conservative lawyer, Larry Klayman, has described in detail what the “alternative government” is doing to the Trump Administration.

 

My new column, The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump, explains the stakes.

The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump

NSA Listening to Trump

 

By Cliff Kincaid

March 2, 2017

America’s Survival

 

President Trump gave a good speech on Tuesday night, but his presidency is still hanging by a thread. Attorney Larry Klayman says an “alternative government” in the intelligence community continues to target him. “These intelligence agencies are more powerful than the president himself,” Klayman said on the Fox Business Network. “They have the ability to blackmail people in this administration to the point that the American people’s interests are going to be subverted.”

 

Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, said, “How can he [President Trump] represent the interests of the American people when he knows the NSA is likely wiretapping everything he says with foreign leaders and everyone else?”

 

klayman-nsa-tapping-trump

Klayman: NSA Tapping Trump

 

It may seem like ancient history, but the media used to be concerned about surveillance of American citizens by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies. After President Trump was elected, such concern suddenly disappeared. In fact, the media became the recipients of illegal leaks of private conversations by Trump administration officials. One such leak forced the resignation of national security adviser Michael T. Flynn.

 

Claude Barfield, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), writes that there was nothing improper with U.S. intelligence surveillance of phone calls to and from the Russian ambassador. However, in regard to Flynn, existing law does not permit the NSA or FBI to “listen to the communications of Americans who may be caught in…eavesdropping.”

 

The allegation that Flynn violated “the ancient 18th century Logan Act that forbids diplomatic activity by private U.S. citizens is no longer relevant, according to almost all legal experts,” notes Barfield. So the wiretaps could not be justified on that flimsy basis.

 

Flynn was forced out on the equally spurious grounds that he forgot to tell Vice President Mike Pence about elements of the conversations he had with the Russian official.

 

Barfield says that “a criminal—and certainly civil rights—violation did occur with the public leaks of the details of his conversations with the foreign ambassador from someone (or some persons) in the intelligence community.” The leak violated the Espionage Act, which makes intentional disclosure of classified “communications intelligence activities” a felony. What’s more, citing Timothy H. Edgar of Brown University, it is also a crime for national security officials “to leverage legitimate foreign intelligence collection to reveal public information in order to damage [an] individual they do not believe should serve.”

 

It is well-known that Flynn’s appointment as national security adviser was opposed by elements in the intelligence community, especially the CIA.

 

Edgar writes that “Flynn himself may be the first victim of civil liberties abuse during the Trump administration.” He says, “If officials had concerns about Flynn, the law requires they lodge those complaints through the system and not through leaks.”

 

This means that some intelligence officials viewed Flynn as a threat and wanted him out, using any means possible.

 

Edgar suggests that Flynn call the ACLU for legal help, but a far better course of action would be to call litigator Larry Klayman, who says it’s clear that “the NSA is spying on the President, his White House, and the administration in general.”

 

Klayman believes that “loyalists to former President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their leftist comrades” are behind the illegal surveillance.

David Ignatius

 

Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) told Newsmax TV that the NSA “can collect on the Russian embassy, no problem,” but that “when they collect on an American, whether it’s here in the United States or when we collect inadvertently on an American overseas, that information immediately should be what we call minimized. The name should be taken away.”

 

“Hoekstra explained that a court order must be granted in order to receive permission to release the name of any American captured by the NSA’s spying techniques,” the Newsmax story said.

 

Rather than be minimized or eliminated, the name was illegally leaked to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. We discussed this sequence of events in the column, “Why the CIA Wants to Destroy Flynn.” Ignatius quoted “a senior U.S. government official” as the source of the information about Flynn.

 

During his appearance on the Fox Business Channel, Klayman discussed this illegal surveillance and offered to represent Flynn in a legal action. He repeated his claim that the intelligence community was engaged in illegal surveillance not only of Flynn but of other Trump officials, including the President himself.

 

Klayman has asked for an emergency hearing on this matter from Judge Richard Leon, who had previously ruled in Klayman’s favor in a lawsuit against NSA surveillance. He said the evidence suggests the existence of an “alternative government,” based in the intelligence community, which is more powerful than elected officials.

 

On the same program, a clip was played of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, saying that the Flynn case represented an abuse of authority. He said that Flynn had his telephone call listened to by the government and leaked to the press, and that if this had happened to a member of the Obama administration, “you can imagine the Democrats in the House and Senate would be going crazy…”

 

Nunes said that, in order for the intelligence community to listen to an American such as Flynn, a special warrant is required. “I am quite sure this wasn’t done in this case,” he said.

 

The Washington Monthly, a liberal publication, published a story by Martin Longman that began, “When it comes to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, I have long seen him as an informal member of the intelligence community who often acts as their mouthpiece.” Longman concluded that “the intelligence community took down Flynn…”

 

The official bio for Ignatius mentions that he covered the CIA when he worked for The Wall Street Journal.

 

At the Post, Ignatius has expressed concern about whether Obama CIA director John Brennan’s “modernization” of the agency will survive Trump. “After interviewing several dozen CIA officers and veterans over the past several months,” Ignatius wrote, “my conclusion is that Brennan’s reforms should continue…”

 

Based on stories like this, it would appear that Ignatius is more than willing, even anxious, to advertise his CIA connections.

 

Any investigation of what Trump calls “illegal leaks” should begin with him.

TRUMP TWEETS HIS OUTRAGE OVER OBAMA WIRE TAPPING TRUMP TOWER DURING CAMPAIGN

 

MARCH 4, 2017

Minutemen News

 

In a possible reaction to a Breitbart story published yesterday, in which writer, Joel Pollak, detailed Mark Levin’s analysis of ten ways the Obama administration tried to undermine the presidential campaign and administration of Donald Trump.

 

Breitbart offers:

 

  1. June 2016: FISA request.The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

 

 

  1. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

 

The article sums up the ten actions, Levin says, should be the target of a Congressional investigation:

 

In summary: the Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.

 

In response, President Trump began tweeting for all to see.

Leftist Indivisible is NOT American Indivisible


leftist-divisible-flag

John R. Houk

© February 23, 2017

 

What is the definition of indivisible?

 

American Heritage Dictionary via TheFreeDictionary.com

 

  1. Incapable of undergoing division.

 

  1. Mathematics Incapable of being divided without a remainder: The number15 is indivisible by 7.

 

The Patriotism of the word indivisible:

 

The Pledge of Allegiance

 

I pledge allegiance to the Flag,
of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
One Nation, under God
Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

 

The notion behind The Pledge I’d like to point to is this: America is ONE nation as in ONE culture with parts that cannot undergo division as long as Liberty and Justice is insured to ALL.

 

The essence of “indivisible” for Americans is wrapped in the American concept Liberty and Justice. The true “American” concept is vastly different than the American Left’s concept of Liberty and Justice.

 

Liberty:

 

Liberty and virtue are not a likely pair. At first sight they seem to be contraries, for liberty appears to mean living as you please and virtue appears to mean living not as you please but as you ought. It doesn’t seem likely that a society dedicated to liberty could make much of virtue, nor that one resolved to have virtue could pride itself on liberty. Yet liberty and virtue also seem necessary to each other. A free people, with greater opportunity to misbehave than a people in shackles, needs the guidance of an inner force to replace the lack of external restraint. And virtue cannot come from within, or truly be virtue, unless it is voluntary and people are free to choose it. Americans are, and think themselves to be, a free people first of all. Whatever virtue they have, and however much, is a counterpoint to the theme of liberty. But how do they manage to make virtue and liberty harmonious? (Liberty and Virtue in the American Founding; By Harvey C. Mansfield; Hoover.org)

John Locke: Natural Rights to Life, Liberty and Property; By Jim Powell; Foundation of Economic Education; 8/1/96)

Concept of Liberty; By Dictionary of American History; Encyclopedia.com; 2003)

 

Justice:

 

The philosophy of John Locke was a major influence on America’s Founding Fathers (SEE ALSO: John Locke – A Philosophical Founder of America; WallBuilders; 12/29/16). The influence of Locke’s concept of Natural Law is embodied in these two paragraphs:

 

In short, according to Cicero, the only intelligent approach to government, justice and human relations is in terms of the laws which the Supreme Creator had already established. The Founders took from Cicero an idea that was revolutionary in terms of a governing a body and that idea was that the glue which binds human beings together in any commonwealth of a just society is love – love of God, love of God’s great law of justice, and love of one’s fellow man – which provides the desire to promote true justice among mankind.  In order to eliminate depravity of society it was necessary to respect this natural order and to love God, oneself, and one another.  If man could do this, then his ability to reason and rule would be done justly and in a benevolent manner, and he would therefore be guided by “right reason.”

 

In other words, Natural Law, the bedrock principle of our founding documents, states that our rights come from God and not from any government.  John Locke took the concept of Natural Law one step further and applied it to government.  According to Locke, people (not rulers or governments) are sovereign.  Individuals have sovereign rights which no government can take away.  As such, government is morally obliged to serve people, namely by protecting life, liberty, and property, and to do so with limited powers and applying the principle of checks and balances so as to be sure to government remained honest and focused or beholden to its goals. This is the bedrock principle of Locke’s view of government.  He explained that natural law tradition could be observed with the ancient Jews and that rulers, when properly constrained, would legitimately serve justly because there are moral laws that apply to everyone. (Our Founding Principles – The Beginning of the American “Experiment”; By Diane Rufino; Forloveofgodandcountry’s Blog; 6/24/11)

 

See Also:

 

Justice in a Free Society; By Dr. Edward Younkins; Liberty Free Press or Le Québécois Libre; 3/15/00

 

These thoughts on the indivisibility of America as enwrapped by the Founding Fathers’ concept of Liberty and Justice are inspired by a Determine The Networks (DTN) article that delineates the Leftist organization Indivisible.

 

The “Indivisible” has zero to do with the Founding Principles of America’s Founding Fathers. The Leftist organization actually promotes Big Government and is all about brainwashing people to accept government as the arbiter of all that is good for society as opposed to the government deriving its power under the Consent of the Governed.

 

From Declaration of Independence:

 

 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

 

(Bold Emphasis Mine)

 

The Leftist Indivisible would rewrite the Declaration to read, “Governments are instituted by Men to enforce power over the governed for the good of society defined by Men.”

 

The DTN article exposing Indivisible as a Leftist organization fails to notify its readers that Indivisible is a part of George Soros funded network that exists to bring a fundamental Marxist transformation not only in America but globally.

 

Breitbart has the line of connection that stretches to Barack Obama and George Soros. My guess on the lack of DTN reporting on connections might be due to the Leftist accusation of Conservatives disseminating Fake News. Breitbart demonstrates that the Fake News is really coming from Left oriented Politico.

 

Obama’s Organizing for Action Partners with Soros-Linked ‘Indivisible’ to Disrupt Trump’s Agenda

 

Organizing for Action, the activist group that morphed from Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, has partnered with the newly-formed Indivisible Project for “online trainings” on how to protest President Donald Trump’s agenda.

 

Last week, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisible leaders are openly associated with groups financed by billionaire George Soros.

 

Politico earlier this month profiled Indivisible in an article titled, “Inside the protest movement that has Republicans reeling.”  The news agency not only left out the Soros links, but failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly by Soros or have close ties to groups funded by the billionaire, as Breitbart News documented.

 

Organizing for Action (OFA) is a so-called community organizing project that sprung from Obama’s 2012 campaign organization, Organizing for America, becoming a nonprofit described by the Washington Post as “advocate[ing] for the president’s policies.”

 

 

Paul Sperry, writing at the New York Post, relates:

 

The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to go into halls quietly so as not to raise alarms, and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together.” Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions. “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” It also urges them to ask “hostile” questions — while keeping “a firm hold on the mic” — and loudly boo the the GOP politician if he isn’t “giving you real answers.”

“Express your concern [to the event’s hosts] they are giving a platform to pro-Trump authoritarianism, racism, and corruption,” it says.

…“Even the safest [Republican] will be deeply alarmed by signs of organized opposition,” the document states, “because these actions create the impression that they’re not connected to their district and not listening to their constituents.”

 

Sperry reported OFA “plans to stage 400 rallies across 42 states this year to attack Trump and Republicans over ObamaCare’s repeal.”

 

 

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Politico profiled Indivisible and reported that “conservatives” are “spreading unfounded rumors” that the group is “being driven by wealthy donors like George Soros.”

 

Politico, however, seemingly failed to do even the most minimal research on the Indivisible leaders cited in the news outlet’s own profile.  Some of those personalities are openly associated with groups financed by Soros.

 

Politico further failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly by Soros or have close ties to groups funded by the billionaire.

 

 

While “Indivisible” has yet to disclose its donors, Politico failed to inform readers that the National Immigration Law Center where the news outlet reported Padilla serves as an analyst is financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The Center has received numerous Open Society grants earmarked for general support.

 

Also unmentioned by Politico is that Padilla previously served as an immigration policy consultant at the radical National Council of La Raza. Soros is a major La Raza donor.

 

Politico went on to detail how Indivisible has been aided by MoveOn.org and the ACLU.  The news website failed to tell readers that MoveOn.org and the ACLU are both financed by Soros, a relevant tidbit given Politico’s claim about “unfounded rumors” that Indivisibles’ success was being driven by Soros.

 

The news website reported:

Just as a side bar. Do you recall how the Left went crazy when then candidate Donald Trump accused the Judge in the civil suit against Trump University of having a judicial bias against him? That Judge’s name is Gonzalo Curiel and he is a member of what Hispanic organization? That organization is called La Raza which translated means The Race. If you notice in the quote above, George Soros is a funder of La Raza.

I suspect as more data becomes documented on Indivisible, DTN will update its profile. Until then here is the DTN article of one of organizers of disruption and anarchy pushed by Barack Obama and George Soros.

Determine The Networks

 

Indivisible is an organization that seeks to persuade Americans – particularly young people – to believe that big, centralized government can benefit society in a multitude of ways that the private sector cannot. In short, Indivisible’s objective is to “energiz[e] and infor[m] Americans about government’s potential” to ensure “a safe, healthy, just and prosperous future” for all. Asserting that “too much time is taken up debating big government versus small government,” Indivisible contends that “what we need to be discussing is how our government works well,” and why it is indispensable for “accomplishing big things.”

In an effort to “inspire a cultural shift in how Americans think about the role of government in America,” Indivisible is committed to “disrupting and reframing negative media discourse about government,” “creating a network of champions to change the conversation about government in their communities,” and “training the next generation of civic-minded leaders.” Toward these ends, the organization has created an Indivisible Institute that administers a leadership-development program for young people “who share a passion for reclaiming government as our unique tool for addressing tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities.” These “emerging leaders” are taught how “to help … build a new American culture” wherein “the potential and promise of government” is axiomatic.

One of Indivisible’s major projects is its “Pave the Way” video contest, whose name derives from the notion that government is “literally paving our way with road construction and interstates.” This contest offers cash prizes to young people who produce quality videos of interviews wherein small-business owners tell “how government paved the way for their business’ success” by means of things like the GI Bill, the Affordable Care Act, Small Business Administration loan programs, and infrastructure spending.
Another key initiative of Indivisible is its “I Love My” program, which offers information and talking points designed to highlight the many benefits of government. On the premise that “it’s amazing how much government is doing behind the scenes to make our lives better every day,” Indivisible argues that the media should make a special effort to “show [that] our public systems and structures [are] usually so well run that we don’t notice them at all.” One such structure, says Indivisible, is the U.S. Postal Service, which “makes our businesses better,” “helps our communities function,” “makes our democracy work,” and “is the reason our country works at all.”

Similarly, another section of the “I Love My” program teaches people to how to speak about taxes in a way that emphasizes their usefulness in helping government to serve “the common good,” rather than in a way that casts them in a negative light. “Don’t talk about taxes as a ‘burden‘ or something from which we need ‘relief,’” Indivisible advises. “These [terms] are inherently negative and they cue up the dominant thinking that taxes are bad. Instead, talk about taxes as ‘loads’ to be carried or shared.” Moreover, says Indivisible: “Don’t call people ‘taxpayers‘ – it limits the conversation to only one side of the ledger (costs, not benefits). Instead, talk about people as ‘residents’ or ‘citizens’ or ‘member[s] of our community’ – it highlights that we are all people who both contribute to and benefit from public systems and structures.”

Indivisible’s “My Take” program features interviews where “real people” are asked to articulate “their feelings [about] government” and their various interactions with it. For example, the interviewees are asked: (a) “What is your favorite thing that government does?” (b) “Who is your government hero who is not an elected official?” (c) “What thing that government does do you think would surprise most Americans?”

Indivisible’s “Reality Check” program seeks to “expos[e] the reality behind myths and misunderstandings about government,” which ultimately serves as “our tool to help us solve big problems together.”

Reclaiming Government for America’s Future is an Indivisible research project consisting of reports, videos, and webinars that aim to counter the popular notion that government “is too big, intrusive, untrustworthy, and controlled by powerful elites” who have little interest in using it as “a tool for the common good.” Topos Partnership conducted this research on behalf of Indivisible, Public Works, and a number of partner organizations in Oregon, North Carolina, Nebraska, Michigan, Arkansas, and Colorado. The overarching objective of the project is to spell out ways in which progressives can effectively “shift conversations and begin to change the cultural common sense about government.”

What This Site Is About

 

Welcome to DiscoverTheNetworks, a project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center. This website is a “Guide to the Political Left.” It identifies the individuals and organizations that make up the left, and also the institutions that fund and sustain the left; it maps the paths through which the left exerts its influence on the larger body politic; it defines the left’s (often hidden) programmatic agendas; and it provides an understanding of the left’s history and ideas.

 

The site is made up of two principal data elements along with a powerful search engine to locate and explore the information stored. The first of these elements is a database of PROFILES of individuals, groups and institutions, which can be accessed through the gray buttons on the home page, or through the DTN DIRECTORY on the navigation bar. The PROFILES provide thumbnail sketches of histories, agendas and (where significant) funding sources. The information has been culled from public records readily available on the Internet and in books and other sources whose veracity and authenticity are easily checked.

 

The second data element of this site consists of a library of articles, both scholarly and journalistic, which analyze the relationships disclosed in the database and the issues they raise. These articles have been entered into the database and READ THE REST
