America’s CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, N.Y. TIMES, WASHINGTON POST ONE PARTY RULE REVIEW:

I wrote the following article at this site about 8 years ago.   At present, only Donald J. Trump stands in the way of a one political party of feminazis, black racists, CNN, MSNBC, NBC and the like ‘reporters’, fascist university professors and professoresses, and the continuation of illiterates teaching illiterates throughout the nation’s public school systems.    Feminists and black racists of all colors, sexes, shapes and sizes seem to be already  in charge.    These vacuous are already barking at our American doors as Democrats, college grads, women’s movements, and black lives matter…

“Josef Stalin ran the Soviet Union as an 8 million square mile prison camp from 1927 till his death in early March, 1953. He claimed to have been sanctified by the primary orchestrator of this nightmare, Nikolai Lenin. Extermination of peoples was a policy of no complexity whatsoever. Friendships, marriages, relatives, generals, doctors, ditch diggers, pedestrians, poets, composers, premiers, state advisers, wives, sons, nearly an entire middle class, millions of peasants disappeared. Nothing mattered, nothing had any meaningful value except Communist Party loyalty. Interpretations of that very Communist Party loyalty changed often, and often dramatically,depending on who was murdered, who had disappeared, who had reappeared, who had been demoted or promoted. Tides rose and fell monthly and annually. Histories were erased. People who once existed were “unexisted”. Comrade Stalin pulled the strings. Last month’s killers were this month’s dead. Fear spread fear.

Public confessions at public trials were well staged, after private tortures. State Socialism was the gospel and the supreme god. Up was down, cold was hot, freedom was slavery, happiness was grief. State Socialism’s Grand Linguist had been Lenin. Language always determined the State! Own the Language, Own the Universities. Own the Press. Own all Ownership…everything owned by the State.

Every American citizen should be profoundly worried about his own country’s ownership over the last five years. Its Democratic Party owned the Schools and Universities, owned the Press and the Entertainment Industry, owned the Nation’s blacks, gays, single females, atheists, unions, Latinos and Speculators of Big Business, especially the ones who love Big Government. The groundwork is already established for State Socialism. Its leaders have advanced controls of free speech. University students learn there was no difference between the US and the USSR during the Cold War. State Socialism is advanced unopposed. Party line science is awarded with huge taxpayer handouts. Opponents to Democratic Party science are silenced. Histories are rewritten. Democratic Party propaganda is passed as daily news.

If the leaders of the Democratic Party were honorable Americans, they should be equally concerned with the collapse of fairness, honesty and responsibility in our American institutions, especially the schools. It is the same Democratic Party that never shouted loud and clear that its gangs stirring the bombings, riots, staged Communist style strikes, threats, attacks, raids, invasions of offices, and murders during the disorders of the late 1960s by the druggies, lefties, black extremists, peaceniks, groupies, and anarchists, was not acceptable, now and never in a democratic society. Lefties of the university faculties then advanced the State Socialist rules of Political Correctness. This Correctness cost Americans jobs, promotions, forced some into confessions,some had to attend Communist like sensitivity training classes, and since have been brainwashed to believe there is no difference between male and female except for socialization, no difference between East and West, between Jihad Islam and Christianity, or good and bad, for all is relative. None of this is good for America, but the country is not yet the Soviet Union. We still live in peace.

Republicans are silent because they don’t want to offend anyone. And, they too do not know history. What is good for the country isn’t often mentioned in Republican dialogue either. What is good image for the Party counts.

If there was any private enterprise during Stalin’s days, it was rooted out and most of its adherents were murdered. After his death, and associated political readjustments, a thaw did occur. In 1956 certain Communist Party leaders, led by Nikita Khrushchev gambled. In the Surpreme Soviet, he denounced Stalin and his “personality cult”. Intrigue continued. Fear continued, but the stakes were no longer so lethal.

By the 1960s people were allowed to grow vegetables in small private plots. Selling such produce was permitted at certain restricted markets. Profits began to be allowed. I remember reading statistics of tomato production. The private plots outproduced tomatoes grown in the collectives by about 100 to one. When I returned to the Soviet Union in October, 1990 there was a serious food crisis. Apparently the crops grew well, but the government fouled up the delivery system. I remember reading 90% of the cabbage crop rotted in the railroad cars because there were no locomotives to move the produce.

By 1990 the black market in the USSR was probably the greatest exchange of money in the country. Its entrepreneurs were interested in capital and an open market. Bribery was always part of the State’s economic system. Favors occured when paid for, or in Stalin’s time died for, or spent time in Siberia for. My dollars in 1990 were universally preferred to the ruble, the country’s currency. The State still owned nearly everything and still pretended the ruble had value. The shelves were nearly empty of goods. The pride of the Soviet propaganda’s supermarket, Moscow’s GUM had fewer than 50% of its shelves filled with merchandise the day I visited it in 1990.

That same year MacDonald’s opened its first restaurant in the USSR. It was a spectacularly beautiful MacDonald’s with all the stuff MacDonald’s usually sells. The quality was reliable. The menu was reliable. The long lines were reliable. The day I stopped by, 400 people or so were in each of two lines. By agreement MacDonald’s had to contract local growers for their vegetables, and the State for the beef and chicken. They paid well. Service was efficient especially when one considers the numbers served. Workers worked without mood swings. No abacus was in sight. One expansive wall was a huge map of the world beautifully lit as if it were projected in three dimension. Everything was clean including the restrooms. Rarities in USSR State run “businesses”.

In 1966 I stopped by a “breakfast” place. I think it was in Moscow. It was a cold, echo reverberating cement block building about a 4,000 square foot square with a smell of toilets in the air. No matter, I was still hungry.

At one line a person could order bread or a kind of currant roll. About 100 persons were waiting in a line, patiently. However, if one wanted coffee or tea, one would have to stand in a new line all over again at the opposite side of the building. About another 100 were waiting in that line. After purchasing my currant roll I moved over to the other line to purchase a cup of coffee to go with my roll. After thirty minutes only three customers were ahead of me. Suddenly there was an argument between the abacus “cashier”, and a fellow awaiting his coffee. Harsh words were said. Whereupon the abacus gal left her post disappearing into a small kitchen area. There she stayed for twenty minutes. I asked the fellow in front of me to explain what had happened. He said that this gal had worked at “this shop” a long time. She was quite tempermental. She often picked arguments with people and would get mad and go to the back room for a smoke. “She’ll be out in five or ten minutes” he assured me with total calm. And he added, “She’ll be allright”.

He had heard the spat. The man in the battle had ordered coffee. He had been heard to have ordered coffee. The girl at the abacus apparently thought tea, and handed out a cup of tea. She was offended when he said politely, according to witnesses, that he had ordered coffee. While she disappeared in a snit, the man waited patiently until the woman reappeared. She had recovered. The man finally got his coffee. Not a single person of about 80 in the line left the line or noticeably complained.

In 1966 almost no one talked in public. There were no discussions on trains, buses, along walkways or in restaurants. People walked but just did not talk except in very small groups in large expansive parks. There were no private autos crowding the streets. By 1990 all that had changed. Traffic and conversations were everywhere. Police no longer appeared or behaved threateningly. Fewer of them carried weapons. Yet there was rebellion in the air. In the morning of my third day in Kiev it began with screaming whistles around 10:30 in October, 1990.

The beginning of the end of the USSR had begun.”

THE END OF IDENTITY POLITICS by by Victor Davis Hanson

The End Of Identity Politics

“Who are we? asked the liberal social scientist Samuel Huntington over a decade ago in a well-reasoned but controversial book. Huntington feared the institutionalization of what Theodore Roosevelt a century earlier had called “hyphenated Americans.” A “hyphenated American,” Roosevelt scoffed, “is not an American at all.” And 30 years ago, another progressive stalwart and American historian Arthur Schlesinger argued in his book The Disuniting of America that identity politics were tearing apart the cohesion of the United States.

What alarmed these liberals was the long and unhappy history of racial, religious, and ethnic chauvinism, and how such tribal ties could prove far stronger than shared class affinities. Most important, they were aware that identity politics had never proved to be a stabilizing influence on any past multiracial society. Indeed, most wars of the 20th century and associated genocides had originated over racial and ethnic triumphalism, often by breakaway movements that asserted tribal separateness. Examples include the Serbian and Slavic nationalist movements in 1914 against Austria-Hungary, Hitler’s rise to power on the promise of German ethno-superiority, the tribal bloodletting in Rwanda, and the Shiite/Sunni/Kurdish conflicts in Iraq.

The United States could have gone the way of these other nations. Yet, it is one of the few successful multiracial societies in history. America has survived slavery, civil war, the Japanese-American internment, and Jim Crow—and largely because it has upheld three principles for unifying, rather than dividing, individuals.

The first concerns the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution, which were unique documents for their time and proved transcendent across time and space. Both documents enshrined the ideal that all people were created equal and were human first, with inalienable rights from God that were protected by government. These founding principles would eventually trump innate tribal biases and prejudices to grant all citizens their basic rights.

Second, given America’s two-ocean buffer, the United States could control its own demographic destiny. Americans usually supported liberal immigration policies largely because of the country’s ability to monitor the numbers of new arrivals and the melting pot’s ability to assimilate, integrate, and intermarry immigrants, who would soon relegate their racial, religious, and ethnic affinities to secondary importance.

Finally, the United States is the most individualistic and capitalistic of the Western democracies. The nation was blessed with robust economic growth, rich natural resources, and plenty of space. It assumed that its limited government and ethos of entrepreneurialism would create enough widespread prosperity and upward mobility that affluence—or at least the shared quest for it—would create a common bond superseding superficial Old World ties based on appearance or creed.

In the late 1960s, however, these three principles took a hit. The federal government lost confidence in the notion that civil rights legislation, the melting pot, and a growing economy could unite Americans and move society in the direction of Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision—“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”……….Please continue reading:

Yes, Yesterday’s Press Conference Played VERY Well with Trump Supporters

Sorry, media — this press conference played very differently with Trump supporters

by Michael Goodwin   at the New York Post:

“The president proved once again that he is the greatest show on Earth. Lions and tigers and elephants are kid stuff next to his high wire act.

Next time, the White House ought to sell popcorn.

Amid feverish reports of chaos on his team and with Democrats fantasizing that Russia-gate is another Watergate, Trump took center stage to declare that reports of his demise are just more fake news.

Far from dead, he was positively exuberant. His performance at a marathon press conference Thursday was a must-see-TV spectacle as he mixed serious policy talk with standup comedy and took repeated pleasure in whacking his favorite piñata, the “dishonest media.”

(Do review  every minute of this press conference provided by President Donald J. Trump.   Expect nothing creepy as was the forte of his devious predecessor.   This Donald J. Trump is deeply concerned about the condition and future of our once beloved United States of America.

President Trump is determined to restore the good, great and God to this once  blessed land of the free.   Our Obamaling dictatorship championing black racism, feminism, scholastic ignorance and open border invasions and its press must come to an end….)

Tammy Bruce: A Conservative Star Midst a Very Stormy Sky of Liberal Whining

Black Racism, Fanatic Feminism, and  Fascism  mouths and minds now govern the heat and noise of today’s “American” Democrat Party.   These invasions have arisen from  the Obama way, an eight year  gift from  that Barrack Hussein, the  communist, Islamist-lover, the  black racist graduate from 22 years Sunday sermons by  his “father figure”,  Jeremiah Wright’s hate-whites sermons “in the name of God!

And then there was Crooked Hillary who should soon be indicted for a broad number of crimes…..but, she’s a Democrat darling who will evade the courts.

There aren’t many beautiful stars shining upon our struggling America today, striving to recover its democratic, God fearing, Truth seeking, conditions so courageously defended and fought for since the nation’s birth.   There is Our Donald on the national leadership front devoted to revive America, the once beautiful.

And there is conservative,  Our Tammy Bruce of past NOW fame who NOW speaks Truth and Wisdom regarding political and social matters at Fox Business with clarity and accuracy  rarely matched among today’s  human sexes.

Please read the her  following article regarding leftist whining syndrome:

Corruption and the Global Warming Gangsters

NASA AND NOAA

by David Rothbard

David Rothbard is President and Co-Founder of the Committee For a Constructive Tomorrow, an international  watchdog group reviewing the dishonest practices by Leftist  politicians and groups such as B. Obama and kin, selling the public falsehoods that Carbon Dioxide is poison about to become a world wide killer of all human living matter and more, and conservative Americans are causing  this inevitable disaster.

“Data tampering?

Independent scientists have long suspected government researchers at NASA and NOAA have been fiddling with temperature data to exaggerate global warming.

It appears they’re making “assumptions” and “adjusting” the data to suit their narrative; namely cooling the past and warming the present.

Confirmation of this data tampering may now be at hand.

The Daily Mail reports that a “whistleblower, Dr. John Bates, a top NOAA scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown them irrefutable evidence that an important paper that played an influential role in the Paris agreement was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.”

Real world measurements have long shown there has been no meaningful advance in global warming since 1998. Warming campaigners have been trying desperately to explain away this global warming “pause.”

Dr. Judith Curry reports that among the suspect practices in use are “adjusting” reliable ocean buoy data to conform to unreliable data from passing ships, altering the temperature reported by land-based weather stations, and assuming temperatures where no thermometers exist at all. NOAA rushed out a controversial temperature report timed to influence world leaders at the UN’s Paris climate summit.

The Mail reports, “NOAA’s 2015 ‘Pausebuster’ paper was based on two new temperature sets of data – one containing measurements of temperatures at the planet’s surface on land, the other at the surface of the seas.”

“Both datasets were flawed. This newspaper has learned that NOAA has now decided that the sea dataset will have to be replaced and substantially revised just 18 months after it was issued, because it used unreliable methods which overstated the speed of warming. The revised data will show both lower temperatures and a slower rate in the recent warming trend.”

“The land temperature dataset used by the study was afflicted by devastating bugs in its software that rendered its findings ‘unstable.’”

CFACT’s Marc Morano exposed NOAA’s “Pausebuster” report in 2015.

Research continually shows the climate computer models the entire global warming campaign is predicated upon to be terribly unreliable.

In science, researchers adjust their conclusions to fit the data. They must never adjust the data to fit a preferred conclusion – no matter how much taxpayer funding hinges on that conclusion.

President Trump should order a full independent audit of NASA and NOAA’s climate data and practices.

Sound policy decisions about the climate cannot be made if we cannot trust the scientific data we rely upon.”

WHY I LEFT THE LEFT

WHY I LEFT THE LEFT  by David Rubin…..a Prager University Course

According to Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report, the “progressive” left needs a new name that more accurately describes the movement. In this week’s video, Dave, who considers himself a true liberal, says that we should call the “progressive left” the “regressive left.” Why? Because progressives today oppose free speech, freedom of religion, and diversity of thought. In other words, progressives have turned liberalism on its head. So if liberals don’t have a home on the left, should they consider themselves conservatives? Dave explains.

Do You Believe in Free Speech?

Should People be Judged by their Character rather than Skin Color?

Do You Believe in Freedom of Religion?
