The Meltdown of Fake Fact Checkers Snopes Continues…


Brooke Binkowski, David Mikkelson & Elyssa Young

 

There was a time I would consult Snopes when I questioned the validity of a fact or a scam chain-email and such. Then I began to notice ideologically Conservative websites or people who I knew exuded valid truths were receiving false Snopes bunking or Snopes would twist facts to make a Conservative truth to appear false.

 

Then I realized the majority of noted fact-checkers were bent to the Left and would impugn facts from Conservatives exposing nefarious Left-Wing crimes as absolutely false even after what was verifiably known pointed toward illegal smoke. And regardless of Leftist obfuscation or down-right lies, where there is smoke there is fire.

 

Tim Brown exposes some nefarious smoke about Snopes and its current owner (and a founder) David Mikkelson. As you will read the smoke involves Mikkelson’s ex-wife, embezzlement, sketchy company practices, new wife porn star and cough Las Vegas escort (Elyssa Young aka Erin O’Bryn) and more that I can’t think of as of this writing.

The Meltdown of Fake Fact Checkers Snopes Continues – Managing Editor Has No Idea Why She Was Fired

The people who have been assigned by the media and social media outlets, as well as search engines like Google (just type something in and pretty much, Snopes is at the top of the list), as being “fact checkers” and champions of the truth will regret the day they put them on such a pedestal.

 

Knowing that Snopes is not the most reliable source of information on the internet and knowing they hire such reputable people as hookers, porn stars and dominatrixes, along with having a founder who is accused of fraud, lies and putting prostitutes and his honeymoon on expenses, it should come as no surprise that the left-leaning, self-proclaimed “fact checkers” are actually having a serious meltdown, and for many of us, it couldn’t be sweeter.

 

The people who have been assigned by the media and social media outlets, as well as search engines like Google (just type something in and pretty much, Snopes is at the top of the list), as being “fact checkers” and champions of the truth will regret the day they put them on such a pedestal.

 

The latest word on Snopes comes from Poynter in a piece titled “Snopes Fired Its Managing Editor – And She Doesn’t Know Why.”  The irony is the Poynter promoted Snope’s fundraiser, but failed to mention the truth about the fake fact checkers.

 

First, Brooke Binkowski was burned out.

 

Then, she was told that she had been fired because of some unspecified complaints.

 

Finally, they said they were eliminating her position altogether.

So by the time that Snopes co-founder and CEO David Mikkelson called her last Monday to say she was fired, Binkowski didn’t know what to believe.

 

“I honestly have no idea,” the former Snopes managing editor told Poynter. “I was given no hints. I was never written up for anything.”

 

Binkowski said her firing is just the latest thing she doesn’t know about how Snopes works. Last summer, after Snopes started raising money for a legal battle over the site’s ownership, Binkowski said she wasn’t included in financial discussions.

 

Snopes’ GoFundMe had raised more than $835,000, as of publication — not including the amount raised from a separate PayPal account. While Snopes, one of the oldest and most-read fact-checking projects in the world, discloses other sources of funding on its website, the PayPal contributions weren’t listed as of publication.

 

“No one knows how it works internally — including me,” Binkowski said. “Even if everything is on the up and up, the appearance is bad.”

 

This news was preceded by last year’s reports that about accusations against Snopes founder David Mikkelson.

 

The Daily Mail carried the story in July 2017 noting:

 

  • ‘Fact-checking’ website Snopes is asking its users for help in a GoFundMe saying an ‘outside vendor’ is ‘holding it hostage’

 

  • But the site which claims to be ‘transparent’ and to tell people the facts they need to know hasn’t told those donating everything that is going on

 

  • In fact it is at the center of a bitter legal battle with its CEO being accused of fraud, lies, conspiracy and putting prostitutes and his honeymoon on expenses

 

  • David Mikkelson set up company which owns Snopes.com in 2003 with then wife Barbara but she sold her 50 per cent stake during bitter divorce

 

  • Owners of company which provided it with tech and advertising services bought her stake but have now fallen out with Mikkelson and call him a fraudster

 

  • Case could see judge order site closed – despite it being chosen by Facebook to arbitrate on fake news

 

The DM pointed out:

 

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse after its owner was accused of embezzling company funds to pay for his contentious divorce battle and lavish overseas trips with his new wife, a former Las Vegas escort and porn actress.

 

 

After the presidential election, Snopes was chosen by Facebook to sit on a panel of arbiters who would determine whether news stories posted to the social media site were ‘fake news.’

 

But at the same time, DailyMail.com revealed in December, the two co-founders were involved in a bitter divorce battle in which he was accused of embezzling nearly $100,000 in company funds to spend on personal expenses and prostitutes.

 

Barbara asked a court at the time to restrict Mikkelson’s bank access, claiming his wild spending was going to deplete the company’s accounts.

 

Court documents from their divorce and its aftermath revealed that he wanted to be paid $720,000 a year.

 

He is also accused of spending ‘tens of thousands of dollars’ on personal trips, including a honeymoon with his new wife to Tokyo Disneyland.

 

The lawsuit claims Mikkelson spent money on Young, who he married last year.

 

Young was an escort in Las Vegas up until at least 2015 and charged $500 per hour, according to her website.

 

She has also starred in adult films under the name ‘Erin O’Bryn,’ and ran unsuccessfully for congress in Hawaii as a Libertarian in 2004.

 

Now, if I was rejoicing in evil, it would be wrong (1 Corinthians 13:6), but this I do rejoice in this delicious news that an evil entity known as Snopes, which has been promoted by the propaganda outlets in America that are owned by six corporations, as well as the social media giants of the day, may just be seeing the beginning of its demise, and rightfully so.

Conservative Vision vs. Leftist Vision – The Next Civil War


John R. Houk

© July 2, 2018

Dems are promoting confrontation against those that have an ideological difference with the Leftist line of thought. Those that differ ideologically are Conservatives and President Trump supporters in particular.

 

The current face of the rabble-rousing Dems is Rep. Maxine Waters. Soon after she began a campaign of pushing her comrade listeners to confront members of the Trump Administration – which turns out to be Conservative Republicans not actually in the Administration – Maxine acolytes have been accosting people so viciously with verbal abuse and profanity, I am surprised fists haven’t flown.

 

There are probably several incidents, but what comes to the top of my mind are Secretary Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi all accosted in public venues by Trump-hating Leftist Loons.

 

Kirstjen Nielsen, Sarah Huckabee Sanders & Pam Bondi

 

In the case of those three women I can see a scenario in which a chivalrous male or group of males physically takes a swing at idiot Leftists. From there I can see groups of Trump supporters begin engaging groups of hostile Dems, Leftist Loons and downright Marxists like Antifa.

 

Eventually rioting escalates into armed confrontations. Then what follows? Probably the next Civil War in the United States of America.

America’s COMING civil war? Too late, it has already begun

 

By Glenn Reynolds

Published July 2, 2018

Jewish World Review

 

Cracked U.S. Flag

 

The other day, author Tom Ricks asked whether we’re heading toward a civil war. “I don’t believe we’re to Kansas of the 1850s yet. But we seem to be lurching . . . in that direction,” he wrote.

Ricks was commenting on “What Democratic rage would look like,” a Bloomberg opinion column that quotes political scientist Thomas Schaller as saying, “I think we’re at the beginning of a soft civil war. … I don’t know if the country gets out of it whole.”

 

That sounds pretty serious. The column by Francis Wilkinson presents a catalog of things Democrats are mad about — from the existence of the electoral college to Trump’s “propaganda apparatus” — and predicts that if Democrats lose the midterm elections, there will be hell to pay. (And Republicans, you know, could make a similar list of their own complaints.)

“I don’t know exactly what that would look like,” Wilkinson writes. “But liberals have a great deal of cultural, academic and economic heft, stretching from Hollywood to Harvard. Just this week, some Hollywood powerhouses flirted with leveraging their clout against the Trumpist Fox News. There are endless variations on such a power play. If Democrats opt to use their power more aggressively — breaking rules — Schaller’s soft civil war hardly seems unlikely.”

 

THE CIVIL WAR IS ALREADY STARTING

 

Well, actually this sort of thing seems to be well underway. Hollywood has basically turned its products, and its award shows, into showcases for “the resistance.” Americans are already sorting themselves into communities that are predominantly red or blue. And in heavily blue Washington, D.C., Trump staffers find that a lot of people don’t want to date them because of their politics.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was even kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, because the owner and employees disliked her politics. This seems like a small thing, but it would have been largely unthinkable a generation ago.

And, in a somewhat less “soft” manifestation, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was bullied out of a restaurant by an angry anti-Trump mob, and a similar mob also showed up outside of her home.

 

Will it get worse? Probably. To have a civil war, soft or otherwise, takes two sides. But as pseudonymous tweeter Thomas H. Crown notes, it’s childishly easy in these days to identify people in mobs, and then to dispatch similar mobs to their homes and workplaces. Eventually, he notes, it becomes “protesters all the way down, and if we haven’t yet figured out that can lead to political violence, we’re dumb.”

Apparently, some of us are dumb or else want violence. As Crown warns, “We carefully erected civil peace to avoid this sort of devolution-to-a-mob. It is a great civilizational achievement and it is intensely fragile.” Yes, it is indeed fragile, and many people will miss it when it’s entirely gone.

 

POLITICAL CONTEMPT IS THE PROBLEM

 

Marriage counselors say that when a couple view one another with contempt, it’s a top indicator that the relationship is likely to fail. Americans, who used to know how to disagree with one another without being mutually contemptuous, seem to be forgetting this. And the news media, which promote shrieking outrage in pursuit of ratings and page views, are making the problem worse.

What would make things better? It would be nice if people felt social ties that transcend politics. Americans’ lives used to involve a lot more intermediating institutions — churches, fraternal organizations, neighborhoods — that crossed political lines. Those have shrunk and decayed, and in fact, for many people politics seems to have become a substitute for religion or fraternal organizations. If you find your identity in your politics, you’re not going to identify with people who don’t share them.

The rules of bourgeois civility also helped keep things in check, but of course those rules have been shredded for years. We may come to miss them.

America had one disastrous civil war, and those who fought it did a surprisingly good job of coming together afterward, realizing how awful it was to have a political divide that set brother against brother. Let us hope that we will not have to learn that lesson again in a similar fashion.

The second ‘civil’ war

Maxine Waters Rabble-Rousing

 

The “tolerant” left will tolerate nothing that doesn’t comport to their radical orthodoxy. And seeing their policies rejected by the electorate, they have sought to use government, the courts and a bullying media to force their will on others. Now they’re employing a new tactic: encouraging and engaging in outright bullying and physical confrontations.

 

In the last several days we’ve seen President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary and her staff harassed as they ate at a public restaurant, Trump’s spokes puppet [Blog Editor: Poor choice of words for a victim of the Left] Sarah Huckabee Sanders asked to leave run out of a restaurant (where the restaurant owner then followed her family to another restaurant and verbally harangued them), Trump staffer Stephen Miller’s apartment swarmed by protesters who tacked up “Wanted” posters, Senator Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation, surrounded and shouted at by a mob of “students,” a DHS staffer reporting a decapitated and burned animal carcass being left on his porch, and Representative Maxine Waters (Communist-California) calling for organized mobs to look for “anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station,” and for them to “get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

 

The mainstream propaganda media are providing cover and granting legitimacy for these actions both subtly and overtly. Any calls for tamping down the vitriol are tepid and feckless, at best.

 

The violent, radical left seems to be revising its playbook from the 1970s. We’ve seen their protests and demonstrations escalate since Trump’s election.

 

Civility in political discussion is now passé. Of course, name-calling, expletives, ad hominems and physical attacks are the refuge of the ignorant. It’s a convenient fallback position for those unable or unwilling to defend their positions with facts.

 

It is also a common practice of the ignorant to automatically assign evil motives to a person or group expressing a counter opinion. Many reach the conclusion that any person or any group that disagrees politically or philosophically is somehow bad and intends to inflict as much harm or heartache as possible on their opponents.

 

But incivility in political discourse is not new. And anyone who takes an honest look at American history understands this.

 

Thomas Jefferson once said, “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.”

 

It pains many of us still, because as long as this practice continues we will be opposing one another rather than mounting opposition to those in positions of power who continue to steal our freedoms by passing unConstitutional laws and steal our wealth by debasing our currency.

 

As the left is increasingly inciting violence, it should bear in mind the maxim that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. There will eventually be a response by equally radical right.

 

Remember that governments — all governments — need crisis, no matter how much lip service they give to “peace.” Crisis is a well-known Machiavellian strategy to gain and solidify political power and persuade public opinion.

 

Crisis provides the stage where governments can control all sides. At least they can arrange events to “naturally” unfold.

 

We are living in critical times. We are seeing before our eyes the breakdown of the rule of law, which leads to the breakdown of law and order. It’s increasingly obvious that mass chaos if not outright civil war is the agenda of the radical left. Remember there is nothing “civil” about civil wars.

Intro to LaSalle’s the Traitors Hillary & Barry


John R. Houk, Editor

William LaSalle, Author (Could be a pseudonym – not sure)

© February 16, 2018

 

William LaSalle posted a huge comment to my share at the G+ Community Truth Warriors. Google flagged it as spam with these loving words from the social platform masters: “Removed as spam and only visible to you”.

 

I thought, “Well that is annoying.” I began reading LaSalle’s post.

 

The LaSalle comment was huge which might have contributed to Google flagging as spam.

 

As (or if) you read the comment, LaSalle comes off as an angry person ranting about the state of affairs left for America by one of the most Presidential Administrations in U.S. history. The thing is LaSalle backs his rant with admittedly Conservative sourced links, yet he includes some links that are from the Left MSM.

 

AND I made the post even longer by adding some excerpts to most of those standalone source links for better context.

 

I might add I concur with 95% of LaSalle’s rants but not all. LaSalle has several paragraph-lists of nefarious individuals and organizations in which some overlap, one example:

 

The M.O. of George Soros, Barack Obama, Muslims, the Roman Catholic Church, Organized Crime, the United Nations, Obama’s Administration, Liberals, Socialists and Communists, and Hilary Clinton is the same.

 

I point the “Roman Catholic Church” in bold text. As huge as the comment is, his inclusion of the Catholics as nefarious actors is not sourced. This leads me to believe a bit of personal animus against Catholics which is not an uncommon issue even among good moral upstanding Protestants (as opposed to a hate group).

 

I am a Protestant/Charismatic/Word-of-Faith Christian. Being in this crowd I have received share of animus from Mainstream Protestants and Catholic in Denominational Christianity.

 

The irony of LaSalle’s animus toward Catholics is he is commenting to a post that showed my displeasure of Jew-Hating Muslims promoting the proven forgery/hoax document The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as legit.

 

Those that have animus toward Catholics have some legit gripes with Catholic Dogma, such as: Papal Infallibility, encouraging prayers to angels and canonized saints and so on.

 

The reality is that devout Catholics have the same Conservative Family values as Biblical-minded Protestants. Today’s modern world has both Catholics and Protestants that have eschewed the Bible as God’s Word to Believers. These watered down diluted Catholics and protestants are worthy of criticism but not animus. Well, that’s my two-cents on the Catholics.
You might want to bookmark William LaSalle’s comment enabling to return to where you left off if you need a break from reading this book of frustration of virus of Leftists polluting the U.S. Government and the Constitution of the United States of America.

[Blog Editor Update 2/17/18: It took me forever to format this post at my flagship Blog. Forgive me, I’m feeling a bit lazy and I’m choosing not to the format thing on this blog. Ergo, I am truncating this post through William LaSalle’s first stand alone link. Read the rest at SlantRight 2.0.]

What you need to know about Clinton and the Uranium One deal

Sessions has raised the possibility of the DOJ probing the matter, as Trump has publicly called for.

By LOUIS NELSON

11/14/2017 03:48 PM EST

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week raised the possibility that a special counsel may be appointed to investigate potential wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, specifically suggestions that a U.S. government panel approved the sale of a large uranium firm to Russian interests in exchange for donations to the foundation.

 

The so-called Uranium One deal has been a focus of conservative media and President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly asked on Twitter why the DOJ is not actively investigating the matter.

 

What is the Uranium One deal?

 

The deal in question involves the sale of a Canadian company, Uranium One, with mining interests in the U.S. to Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear energy agency. The sale occurred in stages, beginning in 2009 when Rosatom purchased a minority stake in Uranium One, and continued in 2010, when the Russian agency took ownership of a 51 percent share of the company. In 2013, a third transaction gave Rosatom full ownership of Uranium One.

 

With its purchase of Uranium One, Rosatom assumed control of roughly 20 percent of uranium production capacity in the U.S. The current licenses issued to Rosatom’s U.S. subsidiaries, issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, prohibit the company from exporting uranium outside the country, according to OilPrice.com.

 

 

What are the allegations of wrongdoing?

 

Controversy surrounding the deal largely pertains to 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state in 2010 when the State Department signed off on Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One. Several of Uranium One’s owners were also donors to the Clinton Foundation, giving $145 million to the charitable foundation, and critics have alleged that Clinton greenlighted the sale to appease donors to her family’s … READ MORE at SlantRight 2.0

 

Fourth Estate Coup D’état Against U.S.A.


John R. Houk

© May 20, 2017

 

During the Primary/Caucus period of the GOP nomination for POTUS, I was not a supporter of Donald Trump. My support was behind stalwart Conservative Senator Ted Cruz. The same Senator dubbed by then candidate Trump as ly’n Ted. (Man, that annoyed me.)

 

But much to my then surprise, The Donald won the GOP nomination. Regardless of my distrust Trump’s Conservative bona fides, I was hugely amused with the rancorous needling of Leftists with campaign promises that sent the Left – including the Left Stream Media – into apoplectic fits of temper tantrums.

 

AND SO, I got behind Donald Trump even though the Leftist MSM was convinced by their polling that there was no way that Crooked Hillary could be beaten in the 2016 election.

 

AND THEN the Trump revolution had manifested. The American voters in a majority of States thumbed their noses at the Leftist MSM as The Donald became President Elect on election night 2016.

 

That is when ALL H – E – Double Hockey Sticks broke out among the Leftist Dems who were certain the continuation of the dismantling of our American Constitution to transform our nation into a godless Big Brother State would continue with Crooked Hillary after the corrupt President Obama left Office.

 

With that in mind, I just read a fascinating essay that I believe rings very true by James Downton at The Federalist. Downton believes a coup d’état began to dismantle Trump’s Administration and came under attack even before he took his oath of Office as President of the United States of America. A coup that as yet has no defined leader but rather is perpetrated by what many call the Fourth Estate of our government – Federal Bureaucracy. In case you are unaware or didn’t pay attention in High School, the Federal Bureaucracy has ZERO standing in the U.S. Constitution as an independent Branch of the Federal Government. This Federal Bureaucracy stretches among the three Constitutional Branches of government; viz., Executive, Legislative and Judicial.

 

I should point out that the author Downton goes out of his way to say his essay is not a defense for President Trump but rather a condemnation of this Fourth Estate coup d’état undermining the U.S. Constitution and the Republic.

 

Here’s a tease from Downton’s:

 

Arguably, what has been branded as “The Resistance” — but in actuality is the totalitarian might of the administrative state and their partisan allies — began with the Democratic Party’s scorched-earth campaign against the political nominations of the Trump White House. But beyond the partisan rancor of the legitimate and often frustrating nomination process, more sinister forces were at work.

We Are Watching A Slow-Motion Coup D’etat

This coup d’etat is not only about President Trump. It represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.

 

By James Downton

MAY 19, 2017

The Federalist

 

It’s nearly incontrovertible that a slow-motion coup d’etat is now taking place. Since November 9, 2016, forces within the U.S. government, media, and partisan opposition have aligned to overthrow the Electoral College winner, Donald Trump.

To achieve this they have undermined the institutions of the Fourth Estate, the bureaucratic apparatus of the U.S. government, and the very nature of a contentious yet affable two-party political system. Unlike the coup d’etat that sees a military or popular figure lead a minority resistance or majority force into power over the legitimate government, this coup d’etat is leaderless and exposes some of the deepest fissures in our system of government. This coup d’etat represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.

This article outlines the mechanisms, institutions, and nature of this coup d’etat; not in defense of President Donald Trump — who has proven himself bereft of the temperament of a successful president — but in defense of the institutions of our republic that are now not just threatened, but may very well be on the verge of collapse.

‘1984’ Is An Apt Comparison, But Not As the Left Thinks

Shortly after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, a sort of “meme” appeared among activists on the political left comparing the status of the United States to that of George Orwell’s “1984.” “Think pieces” from The New YorkerCNNThe Atlantic, and Salon drew comparisons between President Trump and the brutally authoritarian future Orwell envisioned. In April of this year, screenings of the film version of Orwell’s dystopian novel were hosted around the world. “1984” surged up Amazon’s bestseller list. The tragedy of this exercise was that the comparison was very apt, but for different reasons.

The villain of “1984” isn’t a “man” but an entity — a bureaucracy with an authoritarian impulse. Big Brother isn’t so much a man or a leader but a symbol of the omnipotent reach of the bureaucratic state that dominated the dystopian future. The fear of an elected leader turning into a tyrant — as the political Left and some on the political Right feared in Trump — doesn’t play into the narrative of the novel. Rather, it is the fear of a nearly faceless administrative state; a state that has achieved a near totality in terms of tyranny.

This fear of the administrative state was a key feature among at least two individuals writing at the Claremont Review of Books, Publius Decius Mus and professor Angelo Codevilla. Decius’s “The Flight 93 Election” essay acted as a sort of rallying cry for some conservatives and small-“r” republican intellectuals against the very real fear that a Hillary Clinton victory would cement the totalizing power of the administrative state — that is career bureaucrats and administrators who view the virtues of the republic as something to be washed away and remade in their own “progressive” image. Decius writes:

If conservatives are right about the importance of virtue, morality, religious faith, stability, character and so on in the individual; if they are right about sexual morality or what came to be termed “family values”; if they are right about the importance of education to inculcate good character and to teach the fundamentals that have defined knowledge in the West for millennia; if they are right about societal norms and public order; if they are right about the centrality of initiative, enterprise, industry, and thrift to a sound economy and a healthy society; if they are right about the soul-sapping effects of paternalistic Big Government and its cannibalization of civil society and religious institutions; if they are right about the necessity of a strong defense and prudent statesmanship in the international sphere—if they are right about the importance of all this to national health and even survival, then they must believe—mustn’t they?—that we are headed off a cliff.

For Decius, Trump represents the final option to head off the transformation of the American republic into an administrative state where bureaucrats would wield an immutable regulatory dictatorship over the American citizenry.

Codevilla, prescient, went a step further and surmised that the republic was already dead; the Caesarism of an imperial presidency had already usurped it:

Electing either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump cannot change that trajectory. Because each candidate represents constituencies hostile to republicanism, each in its own way, these individuals are not what this election is about. This election is about whether the Democratic Party, the ruling class’s enforcer, will impose its tastes more strongly and arbitrarily than ever, or whether constituencies opposed to that rule will get some ill-defined chance to strike back. Regardless of the election’s outcome, the republic established by America’s Founders is probably gone. But since the Democratic Party’s constituencies differ radically from their opponents’, and since the character of imperial governance depends inherently on the emperor, the election’s result will make a big difference in our lives.

If asked at the time of authorship, one doubts either man could have predicted the swiftness in which the administrative state would be able to consolidate power and isolate the presidency. Yet that is what has exactly occurred. With the aid of the media and the Democratic Party, the institutions of the republic are crippled, the levers of power having been seized not by the elected but by the unelected bureaucratic state — from ideologues at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to the partisans and paranoid who inhabit our intelligence community.

The Administrative State Versus the American People

Arguably, what has been branded as “The Resistance” — but in actuality is the totalitarian might of the administrative state and their partisan allies — began with the Democratic Party’s scorched-earth campaign against the political nominations of the Trump White House. But beyond the partisan rancor of the legitimate and often frustrating nomination process, more sinister forces were at work.

Mother Jones, unwittingly, sheds light onto the mindset of the administrative state in a piece detailing the resistance of EPA bureaucrats. An anonymous and unelected government employee wrote to Mother Jones laying out a lengthy argument justifying his or her resistance to reforms by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and objection to directives from the White House:

What type of nation are we when we allow our leaders to sign into law a rule that makes it EASIER for mining companies to pollute local waterways? These same politicians will try to convince their voters that making it easier to pollute local streams is somehow good for them… [The anti-democratic notion that careerists at the EPA have a greater authority than the will of the people and their elected representatives is astounding and stands against concept of a representative republic]

Here in the US, those of us who work to protect the environment and human health from corporate pollution are lucky enough that we do not live under the specter of murder. We are, however, acutely aware that the forces behind these heinous crimes against environmental activists abroad are the same forces that are working against us in the US today. And make no mistake: These forces are poised to grow even stronger…

..Will the capture of EPA by corporate interests be swept up in all the other horrifying news of the day or week? Or will the public finally decide that it is not acceptable to allow EPA, the only agency with a mission dedicated to protecting the environment, to be systematically dismantled, allowing those at the top to further concentrate wealth and power among themselves? Despite the long odds we face, we will never stop working to protect every person’s right to have a healthy place to live, work, and play. And if the new administrator casts me out of the job I love, I will not stop working toward the principles that have always animated my life. This is who I am, and that will never change. I stand in solidarity with brothers and sisters that work to protect human rights, human health, and the environment here in the US and all over the world. The struggle continues.

This is not the words of a dutiful civil servant but of a partisan tyrant who would see his own view, his own agenda, and his own lens of politics dominate over that of the elected government of the United States. In their minds they are but a guardian of the people, albeit one that must stand up to and ultimately negate the will of that very same people. Were the United States governed by a different political system, this view of the role of the unelected and their duty to act as sovereign over the people might even be admirable, but that is not a republican system.

Which Side Is Really Treasonous?

Complicit with the authoritarian nature of the administrative state is factions within the United States intelligence community both inside and outside the White House. They have engaged in a campaign of selective leaks and plots to undermine the president of the United States and weave a media narrative of Russian influence, conspiracy, and now obstruction of justice. With their media allies, they have leaked information and intelligence that — while lacking any actual criminal element — has allowed a narrative to arise that casts a dark shadow over the White House and those who live and work in it.

A narrative comprised of the Russian government “hacking” the presidential election, collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and Trump being compromised by the Russian government dominated the media before the final votes of the election were even tallied. Skepticism was suspended for what can only be described as a concerted effort to undermine the elected president of the United States.

Shortly after the inauguration, this narrative escalated via select leaks — and was admirably exacerbated by White House actions. We now face a crisis over a fired director of the FBI, with current and retired officials spinning stories to the media with little basis other than the whispers of anonymous sources.

We are told that President Trump demanded a loyalty oath from FBI Director James Comey, demanded Comey drop the FBI investigation into the foreign connections of Gen. Michael Flynn, and that this constitutes obstruction of justice and, in the most hysterical cases, that this among other offenses even constitutes treason.

Yet in all of this we have yet to see the purported Comey memo detailing some of these moments — although from the media treatment it is understandable that many would constitute the media reports as truth. The meeting between President Trump and the Russian foreign minister has resulted in a similar tale of collusion and gross breach of intelligence tradecraft, with Trump’s national security advisor and the secretary of State, both present for the meeting, have both denied.

The Media Slips Loose the Dogs of War

In all of this, the media has abandoned their role as watchdogs with a healthy dose of skepticism and become the propaganda arm of the unelected administrative state, complicit in and even cheering on the actions that have superseded the will of the people. A cursory glance at the social media feeds of most Washington DC-based press more than illustrates this.

Bolstered by their partisan allies, the media has acted as a beachhead for the assault on the Trump administration. Partisan organizations like Media Matters for America have helped to provide ammunition to the media and pour fuel on the fires of resistance among partisan activists. Eric Boehlert, a former journalist and now a writer at Media Matters, tweeted, following the revelation of a possible memo from Comey: “Trump obstructed justice THREE WEEKS INTO HIS FIRST TERM”

Eric Boehlert @EricBoehlert

Trump obstructed justice THREE WEEKS INTO HIS FIRST TERM

5:40 PM – 16 May 2017

Boehlert provides no actual evidence of obstruction of justice. Rather, he runs with an intentional media narrative that the mere whisper, the idea, is in-and-of-itself proof that obstruction occurred. Thus Boehlert is affirmative in his tweet, not speculative. Because the administrative state, the progressive political partisans, and the media oppose the Trump administration, any whiff of maleficence is treated as the Gospel Truth.

Boehlert’s follow-up tweets provide insight into the mindset that has taken over our media and political institutions. “Comey’s firing signaled the end for Trump; he upset forces that were unseen to him. [sic] and now they’re exacting revenge…..as they should”

Eric Boehlert @EricBoehlert

Trump obstructed justice THREE WEEKS INTO HIS FIRST TERM

5:40 PM – 16 May 2017

This should be a disturbing revelation, even one coming from a mind so addled and partisan as Boehlert’s. Justice, properly pursued, is a good end, but what Boehlert is cheering on is the revenge of a man who was legally and constitutionally fired. This is the partisan nature of the administrative state revealed. Partisans of the political Left cheering on bureaucrats to help create a narrative and the appearance of malfeasance where there has yet to be any evidence of such.

Boehlert continues: “ftr, these leaks are unusual: Mon, WP got scoop then quickly lots of reporters filled in. today, NYT, then lots of reporters filled in.”

5:58 PM – 16 May 2017

These series of tweets illustrate the broader problem of collusion between the various elements of the partisan Left, the media, and the administrative state. The attack on Trump from within and without is coordinated and purposefully geared to make a lack of evidence seem like a mountain of evidence and be as damning as possible, although what it truly amounts to is a paper tiger. With the administrative state leaking and the partisans giving context, the media gins up a plot that declares Trump guilty of crimes of which there is no concrete evidence he committed. This is how you build the consensus behind a coup d’etat.

A Smear Production Factory

One only need look at the case of Sebastian Gorka to see just how far and how petty the media has gone to act as the enforcer of the administrative state. Some in the intelligence community and partisan bureaucracy viewed Gorka unfavorably, resulting in an organized campaign in the press against him.

The magazine Forward began running poorly sourced articles tying Gorka to a Hungarian order of merit called the Vitézi Rend, which, during World War II, had factions that supported the Hungarian dictator Horthy, the Imperial House of Habsburg, and the Nazi party. Despite no clear evidence, Forward labeled Gorka, in essence, a Nazi. The media ran with that narrative, bolstered by activist campaigns by partisans of the Democratic Party and those opposed to Gorka in the intelligence community.

In truth, the real objection to Gorka was his view of Islam as a civilizational confrontation and of radical Islam as a hostile force against the West. There as yet remains no evidence of Gorka or his father being tied to the Nazi party in any way — yet that did not stop journalists from surmising on social media that Gorka’s immigration to the United States and status as a U.S. citizen should have been blocked and should be revoked.

The scale of the administrative state and its allies’ war against the duly elected government of the United States should be startling. The media should be an institution of skepticism and concern for this usurpation, yet they have chosen to be complicit. In this, Codevilla is correct. We have emerged into a new system of government, though perhaps not truly an imperial one.

Whereas some continue to try and enforce republican values and norms, a large swath of what administers the government of our nation has chosen to embody the Roman dictator Sulla — in the form of a multitude of bureaucrats and careerists; a dictatorial court without an emperor to bring them to heel.

We may already be past the point of no return. Some in the White House made it a point to seek dismantling the administrative state, but it appears the administrative state is more than capable of fighting back and seizing additional power through leaks, obstinacy, and partisan rancor — ensuring its survival and propelling what can only be described as a coup d’etat.

An Enemy Within Allied With The Seditious Left

The enemies of freedom never sleep. They seek to dominate and enslave those whom they can conquer and to eliminate those who resist. Unfortunately, this pattern has been an integral part of recorded history from ancient to modern.

Warfare will never stop. Idealists have dreams of a perfect world in which all of humanity will be peaceful, prosperous and loving. They are susceptible to the siren song of collectivism know as Marxism, Communism, and Progressivism— now also known as Globalism.

The drivers of these totalitarian forces have their own motivations, and there has been much discussion about the goal of the Elites and Globalists.

They have many tools with which to work. Weakening a culture in general via attacking its social institutions is the work of the enemy within. Alliance with a foreign entity is another.

A brief description of the “alliance” between the Left And Islam:

Which brings us to Islamism. Jihad has many forms and stages. At the end of this post is a series links, (provided for reader convenience) via The Clarion Project discussing Jihad.

There is also a link, via Dr. Bill Warner, for those who would like to become activists but may not know where to go.

Initial excerpts from various posts below discuss Jihad in Europe and the U.S.

Well, Erdogan is completely out of the closet:
Muslims RIOT after Amsterdam thwarts Turkish ministers’ plans to bring violent campaigns to Holland, Turkey threatens HARSH retaliation
 

Geert Wilders was right — about everything.

Muslims are rioting in Holland because the Dutch government barred Turkish political parties from campaigning in Holland. The action was taken in an effort to avoid violent campaign “demos” and import divisions into the Turkish Muslim community in Holland. Prime Minister Rutte’s preventative actions were for naught. Muslims rioted anyway. Turkish President Erdogan is looking to the large number of Turkish migrants living in Europe, especially in Germany and the Netherlands, to help clinch victory next month in a referendum that would give the would-be caliph sweeping new powers.


Turkey has told the Netherlands it will retaliate in the “harshest ways” after
Turkish ministers were barred from speaking in Rotterdam in a row over Ankara’s political campaigning among Turkish emigres.
Will Erdogan unleash another migrant invasion? continue

Will such threats be leveled against America if we refuse to take in our UN dictated “quota” of refugees?
Turkey Again Threatens to Flood Europe with Refugees Unless Turks Get Visa-Free Travel in Europe

Blackmail from a country that is no friend or ally of the U.S., Europe or the West in general. This amounts to an ultimatum: let in huge numbers of “refugees” who will enable jihad attacks and foster the Islamization of Europe, or allow Turks visa-free travel, which would enable jihad attacks and foster the Islamization of Europe. Erdogan’s agenda should be clear to everyone who is not an EU functionary. continue

In the name of Islam:
Another Axe on Islam’s Crazy Train

In a Dusseldorf train station, Fatmir, a Muslim refugee from Kosovo, went on the attack with an axe. His victims included several adults and a 13-year-old girl. 

The authorities are blaming his attack on that familiar standby; drug and psychological problems…


But there appears to be a species of psychological problems unique to Muslims which causes them to head to the nearest train station with an axe or a knife.


A Muslim terrorist went off to the Carcassonne train station in France. He had a machete and a knife. His plan was to kill American and English tourists before going after soldiers and police officers. Even though he was on an Islamist watch list, the authorities blamed psychological problems… 


There have been quite a few Muslims in Germany boarding the crazy train and trying to ride it all the way to the 72 virgins, dazzling white camels and musk mountains of Islamic paradise.
 continue

Jihadis are here and have been for a long time. Just one example below:
Iranian sleeper cells operating in U.S.

American intelligence agencies have growing evidence that the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist group maintains a network of sleeper cells in the United States, according to a new report.

Though Hezbollah has not conducted a major attack on U.S. soil, the group could decide to strike key American sites should U.S.-Iran relations deteriorate substantially, according to 
the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

“Preparations to combat Islamist terrorism broadly should strongly consider the nuanced and growing Hezbollah threat to U.S. national security,” the report concludes.

The courage of one woman:
Until We Are Free: The Shirin Ebadi Story

Until We Are Free: My Personal Fight for Human Rights in Iran is a biographical account of Shirin Ebadi, a 2003 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. A native Iranian Muslim and proud of it, Mrs. Shirin Ebadi documented the cruelty of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In her book, Ebadi provides moving descriptions and clear evidence of the repressive nature of the Iranian regime. What emerges is a clear picture of a Stalinist-like regime absent the Soviet Gulags. The regime’s Intelligence Ministry shuts down all criticism of the regime, by arrests, torture and murder. There is no free press in the Islamic Republic of Iran, no free speech, and every facet of free life is controlled and repressed by the Ayatollahs, through their praetorian guards — the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), and the Basij Resistance Force, a voluntary paramilitary organization operating under the IRGC. It is an auxiliary force with multiple duties, including internal security, law enforcement, special religious and political events, and morals policing. To read more about her heroism go here

Obama’s Saboteurs

Undermining Our Republic

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 3/13/2017 12:30 PM

 

Setting a dangerous precedent for the future of America, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other Leftist propaganda machines and an army of the Obama administration’s holdovers, nothing less than saboteurs, have waged a war of innuendo and speculation and felony leaks for months in an attempt to destroy President Donald Trump’s administration and the government American voters demanded. They have turned their backs on the Constitution and the American people, their oath to protect and defend both, and they have sought to undermine our democratic process and the Republic of the United States of America.

 

Classified information leaked to the media – a felony – set speculation in motion as the New York Times and the left-leaning Mother Jones alleged collusion between Donald Trump and his advisors and Russia for the past six months, even though their own reports show an initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) warrant targeting Trump and several associates was denied and nothing criminal was ever proven. And, according to Heat Street [HERE & HERE], a more narrowly drawn FISA warrant was granted in October to investigate the Trump campaign’s alleged links to Russia’s Alfa Bank and SVB Bank; the FBI found nothing “nefarious” and attributed the raised alarm to “spam”.

 

Essentially, Donald Trump was not named in the second FISA warrant, but surveillance of him and his inner circle, private citizens such as Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, continued up to the general election [HERE & HERE]. One can only surmise that Obama and his leftist minions banked on finding information that would defeat Trump; and after Donald Trump won, they continued surveillance in hopes of eventually impeaching and unseating President Trump.

 

If phone calls to Russia merit an investigation, shouldn’t Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been investigated for accepting a $145 million bribe from Russia and ROSATOM [HERE & HERE] in exchange for helping them acquire twenty-five percent of America’s uranium resources? Oh, wait a minute — Hillary is a Democrat, so just overlook any criminal behavior.

 

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suggested the Obama administration’s extensive surveillance of Trump’s presidential campaign was troubling but not surprising. Hatch “suspected that they were going to do that anyways.”

 

How could the media and the Obama machine — the Obama Foundation, billionaire George Soros and Organizing for America — not expect Trump to counter-punch? But incredulously, they were unprepared for President Trump’s March 4th 2017 allegation on Twitter that former President Obama “had my wires tapped in Trump Tower just before the victory”.

 

Who in the Obama administration ordered the FISA wiretaps and why?

 

U.S. citizens normally cannot be searched or subjected to electronic eavesdropping without probable cause of a crime, however FISA makes exceptions if there is probable cause they are agents of a foreign power. No one person can state with a straight face that “Trump is a Russian spy”.

 

Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer, a defense intelligence officer trained by the CIA (Fox News), said, “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan and Jim Clapper, and I would even go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before [Obama} left”. He also asserted that it was clear sensitive information was divulged to the media by people who had access to beyond Top Secret material.

On the same day of President Trump’s bombshell, Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, told Judge Jeanine Pirro (Fox News) that the Obama administration was also “listening to conversations between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and the Ambassador from Russia while he was in his U.S. Senate office’. (And) the fact that the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act is being used to listen to a political opponent is “very, very damaging”.

Full Pirro/Lewandowski interview HERE.]

 

Please note that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and many other Democrats met with this same Russian Ambassador. Their hypocrisy is on full display.

 

Some sort of surveillance of the Trump campaign occurred, if one can believe James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence. Clapper told NBC and ABC News that during his tenure in the Obama administration, up to January 20th 2017, there wasn’t any collusion or collaboration between Donald Trump’s campaign and the government of Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

 

The NYT’s story “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides” on January 19th 2017 states: “The FBI is leading the investigation, aided by the National Security Agency, the CIA and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks … intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the [Obama] White House.

 

With FBI Director James Comey’s motivation suspect, he asked the Justice Department to confirm that President Trump’s allegation was “absolutely false”. This was followed recently with Congress’s demand for any and all documents concerning any Department of Justice investigation of President Trump and his campaign.

 

Once the Democrats had their “uh oh moment”, as Garth Kant of WND called it, they realized that a scandal bigger than Watergate was beginning to unfold. The Obama Justice Department had apparently used its legal authorities to target a political opponent and a presidential candidate.

 

Any outrage from the Obama White House is extremely exaggerated. Obama does not deny that Trump was being monitored by his Justice Department, and any spying on his arch rival, a man with the ability to diminish his legacy, was done with Obama’s blessing. Only a fool could believe that Obama was ignorant of the spying. [Editor’s Bold Text]

 

From the DOJ’s seizure of Associated Press phone records and Fox News reporter James Rosen’s email records, to heavy IRS scrutiny of the Tea Party and on to the NSA’s warrantless mass surveillance of American citizens, the Obama administration’s enthusiasm for surveillance and using government power against its political enemies is a matter of shameful record. Obama’s and the Leftists’ so-called “Resistance” to the Trump administration has developed the feel of a not-so-covert coup against President Trump. [Editor’s Bold Text]

 

Americans are entitled to the full truth surrounding former President Obama’s use of nation-state resources for the purposes of political gain. Sycophantic rogue agents of the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and the Justice Department, all Democrat ideologues and communists, have apparently subverted the U.S. Constitution and spied on President Trump’s presidential campaign in a manner that was not approved by any court, in order to derail his election and the Democratic process, leaking sensitive national security secrets along the way. And anyone involved, including Obama, must be prosecuted and placed behind bars. [Editor’s Bold Text]

“…they’ll support anyone that continues Leftist principles…” And and conservatives will support anyone that supports their regressive principles. You basically stated that people will support what they agree with. Thanks for the biggest DUH of the year.

“…regardless of how crooked they are.” Now that is false. Your opinion is not how our justice system works. Please realize that all of your charges fail against her because they are unfounded and not because everyone is crooked and letting her be above the law,

And look at your own candidate a minute. even if half the shit you claim on hillary was true, she would still be the less of the evils.

“…regardless of how crooked they are.” Now that is false. Your opinion is not how our justice system works. Please realize that all of your charges fail against her because they are unfounded and not because everyone is crooked and letting her be above the law,
Come on Aaron, even Crooked Comey said she did something wrong. He felt – As if you can believe it – that the poor grandma broke the law without intent; ergo no prosecution is needed. WHAT A CROCK!

 

And look at your own candidate a minute. even if half the shit you claim on hillary was true, she would still be the less of the evils.

 

Now Aaron, you know that is a lie straight from the pit of hell, right? I thought you were an intelligent Leftist, or are you pulling the old (socialist) Nazi/Communist lie about speaking falsehood enough that people will believe it as truth? For all the miscues Trump has committed, NONE of them cost lives (Benghazi) or covered up the victimization of women that Bill Clinton raped or groped. In spite of Trump’s potty-mouth, Leftists tried to exploit private locker room talk about female genitalia as if it was the same as actual acts unwanted sex. Where is the line of women accusing Trump of unwanted physical sexual advances? There are none.
