Despite Fascistics at Fox News, Truth and News Come Together Occasionally

Trump vs. the barbarians at the gates

By Patricia McCarthy  at American Thinker:

All the Sunday News programs have become unwatchable but for Maria Bartiromo’s on Fox Business. Even Fox News Sunday is only marginally less biased than the other networks. No one looking for actual news and real journalism bothers with any of them:  CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC or CBS anymore.

Tapper, Todd, Stephanopoulos, et. al. are each agents of the Democrat party dedicated to bringing President Trump to his knees.  Why? Because he is not one of them.  Because they loathe him and the people who elected him.  They have contempt for him and for us.  Their contempt is on display 24/7 on all but Fox News which has recently been inching toward becoming just like the rest of them, hopelessly biased against all things conservative.

American progressives, beginning with Woodrow Wilson, set out to destroy America as founded to undo the Constitution and to make the US into a totalitarian creation not unlike Mao’s China, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Castro’s Cuba, Chavez’ and Maduro’s Venezuela.

When the American people rebel and elect a Reagan or a Trump, their anger and vitriol escalates into the stratosphere.  They unwittingly reveal not only their essential anti-Americanism but their fundamental abhorrence for anyone and everyone who takes issue with their intent to “transform” America.   They hate us much more than they love the country that has afforded them so many freedoms that most citizens of the world are denied.

The Left does mean to purposefully obliterate the cultural values that made this nation great.  They do mean to indoctrinate our young people with the myth of transgenderism, sacrificing the futures of countless children in the process.  They do mean to implement control over every aspect of our lives via the shallow myth of climate alarmism by instilling fear in the young.  They willfully intend to impose their socialist, soon-to-be communist globalism on us all.

That’s their plan and they are sticking to it, no matter how obvious it becomes that Americans are not on board. We elected Trump, to their eternal indignation, to stop this self-destructive, globalist nonsense.

Hilariously, Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday asked Vice-President Pence if Trump did not trust Pelosi enough to brief her on the plan to take ISIS commander Al-Baghdadi out!  That is how blinkered Wallace is.  Of course Trump does not trust Pelosi or any other Democrat in Congress.  They’ve done nothing but try to destroy his presidency for the last three years.

Who in their right mind would trust any one of them?  Each and every one of them, especially Pelosi and Schiff would have delighted in leaking the plan, even if it cost American lives.  That is who they are. This crop of Democrats, so deranged by Trump’s successes, has lost any sense of decency and ethics.

To millions of Americans, they are traitors to their own nation, to their own constituents.  They have all forsaken their home districts in their obsession to impeach the President and their constituents are noticing.   Most sentient Americans do not look forward to a socialist nation and the wholesale lack of freedom it would impose on our population. We like our cars and the freedom of movement our cars provide.  We like to travel by air.   We like the Second Amendment.

Every tyrant who has confiscated his population’s weapons has shortly thereafter committed genocide.  That’s how it goes.

Warren and Sanders and the rest of the Democrat candidates for president think that by promising free stuff for everyone, they will win because, even though they know none of their promises are remotely possible, we are all so easily manipulated we will fall for their lies.  Obamacare was an enormous lie and everyone knows that now.

The American people are not likely to fall for such a gross falsehood again.  Medicare-for-all is an even bigger lie; there will be health care for no one but our self-appointed elites who make the laws.

As it becomes clear that not one of the current crop of candidates has a chance of beating Trump in 2020, the Left has escalated their plan to impeach the man before then.  But it’s not going to happen.  People like having jobs.  They like not being on food stamps.  They like the fact that the US in now energy independent, that our economy is thriving.  They like that African-American unemployment is at the lowest ever recorded.

They see that our cities that have long been run by progressives (Los Angeles, Chicago, Baltimore, etc.) are blighted by homelessness, poverty and an avalanche of illegal immigrants who require a massive investment of taxpayer dollars and that we are forced to endure the horrific crimes some of them commit here that take the lives of our citizens.

They like Trump’s love and enthusiasm for this country and for all of its people.  Hillary designated over half the country as deplorables and still thought she could win!  It is Ms. Clinton who is deplorable.  It is Ms. Clinton who is a blight upon this country.  To say her brand of corruption is toxic is an understatement.

The one truism that afflicts our nation at this moment is that leftists believe only they are qualified to run this great nation.  They actually do believe those of us who oppose their plan for an America submissive to some amorphous but powerful global government entity are an impediment to their agenda.

It is evident everywhere that most Americans are not buying what the Left is trying to sell.   Despite all the earnest efforts of a corrupt media and all those Sunday News Shows, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide.  The left hates him and they hate us.  We love him and we love this country.  There are more of us than there are of them. These are the crossroads, the barricades, at which we Americans now stand.

The Left today stands for corruption, amorality, gender fluidity, anti-religiosity, injustice and open borders.  They intend to flood the country with Democrat voters.  They oppose the First and Second Amendments.  They oppose due process.   What Schiff and his co-conspirators are doing in secret is appalling and indefensible.  The Democrats and the mainstream media are the barbarians at the gate and they have, for three years now, beclowned themselves with their venomous bias against the man we elected to defeat them.  And he will defeat them again because Americans love their country.

“What did you learn in school today, dear little child of mine????”

‘Your Past is Terrible, and Your Future is Terrible’: What the Left Tells Young Americans

By DENNIS PRAGER  at the Stream:

Here are some of the messages the left has been giving America’s young people:

Your past is terrible, and your future is terrible.

The American past is a story of genocide, slavery, racism, patriarchy and colonialism. You should be ashamed of it.

As regards your future, your very existence is in jeopardy. You may well die at a young age unless society completely shifts from fossil fuels to wind and solar power. In fact, your future is so bleak you should probably not consider getting married and having children.

America Loathes You

If you are a girl, you should know that American society has contempt for you. You will be paid less than a man for the exact same work and exact same number of hours of work. You will have between a 1 in 4 and 1 in 3 chance of being sexually assaulted if you attend college. There is a glass ceiling that will prevent you from professional success. And professional success, not marriage and family, is what you should concentrate on.

That none of the above is true is irrelevant to the left. What is relevant to the left is that these messages make young women leftists — because they make them angry (virtually all leftists are angry), sad (there are happy liberals and happy conservatives but very few happy leftists) and lonely (singles are overwhelmingly on the left).

— If you are a young black, the most important thing for you to know is that this country loathes you — that racism is “part of our DNA,” as President Barack Obama put it — and that just being black gets you suspended or expelled from school, shot by police, denied the vote whenever possible and disproportionately imprisoned.

Again, almost none of that is true. But a happy black — let alone a black grateful for being an American — is much less likely to support the left.

— If you are a young Latino, know the white majority is so xenophobic that if it could, it would expel you from the country.

— If you are a white male, you are the recipient of unearned privilege, and you are a racist.

— Boys and girls, you need to know from as young an age as possible that there is actually no such thing as “boys and girls.” That is why your teachers have been told not to refer to you as “boys and girls” but only as “students.”

Don’t Look to God for Meaning

— Young people, you should know that there is no God. So don’t look to God or religion for meaning. They are for the emotionally handicapped and for intellectual lightweights. For meaning, look to social action.

— Christianity, the religion of the great majority of Americans since America’s founding, the religion of nearly all your parents or grandparents, justified slavery, the slaughter of Native Americans and the persecution of gays. And in our time, most people who call themselves believing Christians are bigots and hypocrites. Whatever good was achieved was done so by believers with secular Enlightenment values, not Judeo-Christian values. Islam, on the other hand, has always been a religion of peace.

Don’t be Proud to be an American

— Western civilization is nothing for you to be proud of. It is neither culturally nor morally superior to any other civilization or culture. And in many ways, it is worse: It is largely a record of persecution and genocide. That’s why you will no longer celebrate Columbus Day but rather Indigenous Peoples Day.

— Columbus Day will not be the only national holiday we will either erase or minimize in importance. Whereas Americans have always had meaningful holidays to celebrate and enrich their lives, you will have few or none (aside from Halloween). Previous generations found great meaning in Washington’s and Lincoln’s birthdays. You won’t. Their birthdays are no longer celebrated. Throughout American history, July Fourth meant a great deal to nearly all Americans. They celebrated it with patriotic marches, parades and speeches. No longer. Anyway, America wasn’t founded in 1776: According to The New York Times, it was founded in 1619, when the first slaves arrived. As for Memorial Day, this once solemn day in which Americans placed flowers at the graves of those who died to preserve our freedoms, is just another day off. And most of the deceased probably died in vain anyway.

No Heroes

— You have few American heroes.

Hey, kids, America’s founders, known as heroes to every generation until the present one, were not heroes at all. They were rich white men who believed in patriarchy, the suppression of women and slavery. They were all racists, and some were rapists. In short, as an American, you have few, if any, heroes.

Only when one understands that the left — the left, not liberalism — has always and everywhere been a destructive force can one begin to understand what is happening to America. And the left has damaged no group more than America’s youth. Leftists speak about “the children” — but they care about “the children” as much as the communists cared about “the workers.”

Jail Obama’s Fascist Clapper and Communist Brennan?

Free Flynn, Jail Clapper and Brennan

By Daniel John Sobieski at American Thinker:

Former director of National Intelligence and current CNN contributor James “I Lied To Congress and Got Away with It” Clapper stammered through his interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday, admitting that he may be a target of U.S. atty. John Durham’s investigation, now officially turned into a criminal probe by Atty. Gen. William Barr.  As BizPacReview notes:

Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper seemed to struggle with his poker face as he reacted to news of a DOJ criminal inquiry.

The current CNN contributor spoke with Anderson Cooper about reports of the transition of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review into the origins of the Russia probe into a criminal investigation. And his body language spoke louder than his words.

“What do you make of this,” the CNN host asked on “Anderson Cooper 360.”

“Well, I’m very curious because presumably, I guess I’m one of those under investigation,” Clapper replied, peppering his sentence with several uses of “uh.”

“Uh” rhymes with “duh,” which is the reaction to growing suspicions that based on his actions and mounting evidence that perjurer James Clapper and Lt. Gen.. Michael Flynn might be headed in opposite directions — Deep State point man James Clapper headed to prison for sedition, along with Deep State political hack John Brennan, both charged with helping to orchestrate a coup against a duly elected sitting president, Donald J. Trump.

Sidney Powell, the attorney for Gen. Flynn, has filed a motion to dismiss the charges against him based on indications that the FBI altered his 302s, essentially written reports based on witness interviews, to make him look guilty and leaking information on Flynn’s calls to the Washington Post.  As reported by RedState:

Powell alleges a set-up of Flynn including that the FBI 302s related to Flynn were edited.  A 302 is the form the FBI uses to reflect what a witness says during an interview.  Powell’s filing also suggests that Office of Net Assessment’s James Baker illegally leaked the transcripts of Flynn’s calls to David Ignatius of the Washington Post.  And Powell is specifically looking for the phone records of James Clapper to see about his contacts with Ignatius, including that he essentially told Ignatius to “take the kill shot on Flynn.”

Powell, a former federal prosecutor and a veteran of 500 federal appeals, is the author of Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice, a biting tome exposing the prosecutorial misconduct of government lawyers such as Robert Mueller’s “pit bull,” Andrew Weissmann, and other members of Obama’s inner circle that have threatened the foundations of true justice in our democracy.  Powell has sunk her legal teeth into the fraudulent case against Flynn that should result in his, with apologies to Robert Mueller, exoneration.  As noted by Powerline:

Powell’s most explosive charge is that the FBI falsified the Form 302 that recorded the content of its agents’ interview with Flynn in order to set him up for prosecution:

On February 10, 2017, the news broke — attributed to “senior intelligence officials” — that Mr. Flynn had discussed sanctions with Ambassador Kislyak, contrary to what Vice President Pence had said on television previously.  Overnight, the most important substantive changes were made to the Flynn 302.  Those changes added an unequivocal statement that “FLYNN stated he did not” — in response to whether Mr. Flynn had asked Kislyak to vote in a certain manner or slow down the UN vote.  This is a deceptive manipulation because, as the notes of the agents show, Mr. Flynn was not even sure he had spoken to Russia/Kislyak on this issue.  He had talked to dozens of countries.  Exs. 9, 10, 11.

Second, they added: “or if KISLYAK described any Russian response to a request by FLYNN.”  That question and answer do not appear in the notes, yet it was made into a criminal offense.  The typed version of the highly unusual “deliberative” 302 by that date already included an entire section from whole cloth that also serves as a criminal charge in the Information and purported factual basis regarding “Russia’s response” to any request by Flynn. The draft also shows that the agents moved a sentence to make it seem to be an answer to a question it was not.

As Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett notes on his website, it is Clapper who may have ordered the hit job on Flynn, calling for a Washington Post reporter to “take the kill shot” on Flynn by publishing leaked information:

New court documents released Thursday night shed some light on some of the deep state’s actions in attacking former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn.  If these actions were revealed to have been taken against anyone else that was not a Trump ally, the media would be screaming about the abuse of power and the corruption of dirty law enforcement officials.

These documents allege that President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, called Washington Post reporter David Ignatius to “take the kill shot on Flynn.”  It is believed that ONA Director James Baker had leaked information, including transcripts from General Flynn’s calls, to Ignatius.  Director Baker is believed to also have been the handler for Stefan Halper who may have been tasked by the FBI/CIA to slander General Flynn personally[.] …

James Clapper admitted earlier in the month that President Obama ordered the intel community to collect and release as much information about “Russian interference” as possible.  Could the command from President Obama have directly led to the leaking of transcripts from Director Baker as well as Clapper telling a reporter to “take the kill shot” on a political adversary?

Close scrutiny of the Intelligence Community’s actions by Durham and Barr should send chills down Clapper’s spine and former CIA director John Brennan’s as well.  In the search for the answer as to how the whole Mueller collusion probe and spying on Team Trump originated, one does not have to look far.  One needs only to revisit another interview Deep State conspirator and perjurer James Clapper gave with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.  In that interview, Clapper points his finger directly at Barack Hussein Obama as leader of the coup against Donald Trump:

Former Obama administration director of national intelligence James Clapper admitted that former president Barack Obama gave the order to Peter Strzok to kick off his Operation Crossfire Hurricane targeting of President Donald Trump.

Obama — who also gave a stand-down order on stopping alleged Russian hacking — was personally implicated in the plot according to Peter Strzok and Lisa Page’s texts.  Clapper confirms the obvious.

This is James Clapper’s interview with Anderson Cooper, which confirms that Obama ordered Strzok to carry out an Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA), which became the basis for the entire Mueller probe.

“If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.  President Obama is responsible for that.  It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place,” Clapper said in his Anderson Cooper interview.

Newly revealed text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggest that in addition to the FBI altering Michael Flynn’s 302s, Deep State actors at the FBI were well aware of and in cahoots with the intelligence community of James Clapper and John Brennan and may shed light on what clapper meant by taking a “kill shot” on Flynn.  Certainly GOP Sens. Charles Grassley are interested, according to Fox News:

Republican congressional leaders are calling for a new investigation of media leaks surrounding the Russia investigation — possibly emanating from the intelligence community — pointing to internal text messages they say indicate a more widespread problem.

“[T]hese texts and emails demonstrate the need to investigate leaks from agencies or entities other than FBI,” Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote to Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael K. Atkinson, pointedly asking whether he’s launched a probe “into these apparent leaks.” …

The specific messages include a December 2016 text, in which Strzok told Page, “Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking in to overdrive.”  Fox News previously reported on that exchange.

In April 2017, Strzok also sent an email commenting on an article about the Trump campaign and Russia by saying, “I’m beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn’t shared it completely with us.  Might explain all these weird/seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have.  Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks.”

What did the CIA and FBI share exactly?  Strzok, in another text, expressed the need for an “insurance policy” to either prevent Trump from being elected or, if he was, remove him from office.  This was quite a policy and quite a coup, involving the FBI, the CIA, and quite possibly President Obama himself.  Godspeed, Durham and Barr, and if justice still exists in America after this Deep State assault, Michael Flynn will be a free man, and John Brenan and James Clapper will be cellmates.
