Response to MSNBC’s Fanatic Black Racist Liars of the Squad

THE PRESIDENT STRIKES BACK

by  John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their “Squad” held a press conference to denounce President Trump’s attack on them. They got plenty of support from the press, which now routinely characterizes Trump’s tweetstorm against them as racist. Like, for example, the Associated Press and my home town newspaper the Star Tribune (“After being singled out by President Donald Trump with racist tweets….”).

The claim that Trump’s tweets were racist is false, as I wrote here. Apparently it is now “racist” to criticize “Congresswomen of color” as the Squad is often described. (For the record, AOC is paler than I am, and I am of Norwegian descent. But the meaning of words like “race” and “color” is flexible and mostly politically determined.)

This morning, President Trump again took to Twitter to renew his battle with the Squad:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

The Democrat Congresswomen have been spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate, & yet they get a free pass and a big embrace from the Democrat Party. Horrible anti-Israel, anti-USA, pro-terrorist & public…..

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

…..shouting of the F…word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

If you come after the President, the Country, the Flag – he’s going to defend himself. What the squad doesn’t like is that Donald Trump is enforcing the very laws that are on the books that were put there by Congress.” Jason Chaffetz. Also, buy Jason’s great new book, POWER GRAB!

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Our Country is Free, Beautiful and Very Successful. If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat…..

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

…..Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!

It is true, as Trump says, that the four Congresswomen are anti-American, far left, and disliked by most Americans. This is why Nancy Pelosi has tried to rein them in. Construing Trump’s attacks most charitably, and overlooking the fact that he was flat-out wrong in talking about the Squad returning to the countries from which they came (all but one were born in the U.S.), he evidently is trying to tie the unpopular far-left Democrats to the party’s tail in anticipation of next year’s elections, perhaps hoping the GOP can re-take the House.

Most Washington Republicans are either condemning the president’s attacks, or avoiding reporters. The RNC, on the other hand, has supported him by releasing a series of tweetsbacking up his criticisms with video clips of Squad members. Yesterday House Democrats introduced a resolution condemning “President Donald Trump’s racist comments.” The resolution is largely a paean to immigration. I assume it will be voted on imminently, and will pass. It will be interesting to see whether some House Republicans vote for it.

President Trump has defended himself quite ably on Twitter, but the percentage of Americans who get their news from Twitter is vanishingly small. What most Americans are seeing is a consensus expressed in the press that President Trump is a racist. Defending himself against that pervasive charge, soon to be embodied in a House resolution, is hardly the position the president wants to be in.

That said, having dug the hole as deep as it currently is, Trump may as well continue his efforts to make Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley the face of the Democratic Party. They are, as he says, far-left, socialist, dictator-supporting, America-hating anti-Semites.

Lefty Black Feminists Launch Racist Attack Against White President Donald J. Trump!

When Will Obama Evil, 2009-2017, Begin to be EXPOSED?

WHO’S FLIPPED?

by  John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

At the Daily Wire, Ryan Saavedra postulates a breakthrough in DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into alleged FISA abuse against the Trump campaign. Saavedra reports that “at least one witness has started to cooperate in the investigation.” Fox News also reports that an Obama administration official has flipped.

Saavedra suggests that the official most likely to be cooperating with Horowitz’s investigation (which in turn, as I understand it, is collaborating with the Durham probe that was ordered by Attorney General William Barr) is Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec.

We wrote about Kavalec’s role in the Russiagate investigation in May. The relevant point is that Kavalec knew that Christopher Steele’s Hillary-financed “dossier” on Donald Trump was a fraud in early October 2016, before the Department of Justice misled the FISA court in order to get a surveillance order on Carter Page:

In her typed summary, Kavalec wrote that Steele told her the Russians had constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election” that recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.”

She quoted Steele as saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”

Kavalec also pointed out that Steele was politically motivated, as demonstrated by his Election Day deadline. (No surprise there, since Hillary Clinton was his client.) Kavalec passed her concerns about Steele’s good faith up the chain of command–again, before DOJ’s FISA application, which swore that Steele was “reliable” and claimed, falsely, that DOJ was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to him. Those assertions were made again and again over a period of months as the FBI and DOJ repeatedly went before the FISA court to renew their surveillance of Page, who must be America’s most innocent man, since he was never charged with anything.

If Kavalec has indeed flipped, how significant is it? It’s hard to say. Her notes and emails are damning enough; the question is whether she has much to add to them. She might have had conversations with fellow Obama administration officials about Steele that would definitively put the lie to the administration’s FISA applications. More likely, she can simply add foundation and context to the written record.

I have always thought it unlikely that any Obama administration officials–John Brennan, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and the whole rogues’ gallery–will pay a serious price for their meddling in the 2016 election and, worse, their effort to use fake intelligence to disable the incoming Trump administration. But we can always hope that someday, justice will prevail.

The Disappearance of Motherhood in Today’s America

The most powerful cultural drive among the majority of  today’s American female population is not  to enter motherhood, but to become an  imitation of today’s human male.  “Everything he can do I can do better” is her leftist political and social motto.

After all,  she owns the nation’s college and university social “sciences” world these days.  She pretends to be, because she is programmed to be,  the male equal in the military.   She owns today’s  leftist world of our  nation’s  once Democratic Party.   Truth has no meaning!  Feelings count…..or ELSE!

Schools, universities, teachers, professors, the newspaper world, the CNN, MSNBC, CBS, PBS, ABC, NBC, and much of the foreign Fox  all practice a similar dictatorship.

In my lifetime until the beginning of the collapse of civility and honesty in America in the 1960s,  the human female of all colors, shapes and sizes were expected to be, and were proud to be Mothers rather than animals with  human flesh.

Christianity and Judaism taught us so!   My parents obeyed.  Their relatives obeyed.  Our neighbor’s and our relative’s neighbors obeyed.   Negroes and whites obeyed.

And the streets were safe!    It was depression time…..and war time……and war recovery time.    Males worked 48 or more hours per week.    Females were Mothers and Grandmothers  at home, civil, loving, commanding, thoroughly respected, and Godfearing.    A JudeoChristian nation was still  in control.

Godfearing families dominated both in  city and country.   It was Depression and War time.   Gangsters lived in  and worked the big cities, Chicago, Boston, New York, Philadelphia.   In Minneapolis there was noted crook Isadore Blemenfeld’s outfit, but  the neighborhoods were as safe as home.   I lived in Roman Catholic St. Paul.

With the exception of some devoted Christian and Islamic families, today’s American Mother no longer exists.   Either the American she avoids any role as Mother,  cannot find a today’s human male civil or secure enough to bear her children,  or prefers being a feminist forever or is on drugs!

They go to college instead…..playing soccer, hockey, baseball and stuff like males do.   Equality of sexes  is deemed politically correct for eternity, today’s America dictates.

All human sexes are the same, today’s fascistic America claims.    Motherhood today, if it exists at all, is reduced to a female  bearing a child and two days or a week later, or asap,  returns to her career life of eight hours, five days a week, fifty weeks each year as  equal or superior to any male.

I was raised in a very modest but newish neighborhood in St. Paul, Minnesota in the 1930s and 1940s, the depression and war years.   Sixteen families lived along both sides of the street where I was raised.   All but two families had Mothers and Fathers of children who were raised there.  Those two families were grandparents whose children and their families lived out of state.

In truth, “Motherhood” no longer exists in today’s  general American population.   She can’t be if she is absent from Motherhood  most of the week most of the year.

Is it any wonder why so many college gals  of today’s America are so absent of culture, wisdom, and civility?

“Who cares if they play soccer in a world cup?”  you say?

 

 

Why Did Robert Mueller Become So Lefty Corrupt?

WHAT WAS MUELLER UP TO?

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Robert Mueller turned in a disgraceful performance as Special Counsel, allowing himself and his staff to be used as a tool of the Democratic Party. He knew from an early stage that the core of what he was supposed to be investigating–“collusion”–did not exist. But he plowed forward, hoping to ensnare members of the Trump campaign or administration in process crimes. Meanwhile, he ignored the real scandal: the attempt by top-ranking officials at the FBI and CIA to swing the 2016 presidential election to Hillary Clinton, or, failing that, to disable the incoming Trump administration before it had a chance to get off the ground.

All the while, there has been a weird mystery about what, exactly, Mueller was instructed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to do. Byron York, who has followed the story closely, explains:

The 448-page Mueller report has been public for two months, so it might seem strange that the Justice Department’s original instructions to special counsel Robert Mueller, outlining what he was assigned to investigate, are still a secret. But they are. And now, it turns out those instructions were more extensive than previously known. Until now, it was widely understood that there had been two “scope memos” from DOJ to Mueller. Now, it turns out there was a third, as well.
***
On April 3, 2018, news broke that Rosenstein wrote a second scope memo to Mueller. Dated August 2, 2017 — just 10 weeks after the original appointing document — the second scope memo came to light as a result of court proceedings for the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. But most of it was blacked out. Still, the public could see that Rosenstein wrote that the original May 17, 2017 scope memo “was worded categorically in order to permit its public release without confirming specific investigations involving specific individuals. This [August 2] memorandum provides a more specific description of your authority.”

Rosenstein apparently went on to list several assignments, but only one was not blacked out. In that section, Rosenstein authorized Mueller to investigate allegations that Manafort “committed a crime or crimes by colluding with Russian government officials with respect to the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 election for President of the United States, in violation of United States law,” as well as allegations that Manafort “committed a crime or crimes arising out of payments he received from the Ukrainian government before and during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych.”

This is interesting because the first charge, investigating whether Manafort colluded with the Russians–he didn’t–fell within the commonly understood ambit of Mueller’s assignment. But the second–whether Manafort failed to register as a lobbyist for a foreign country, which at the time, years before he had any involvement in the Trump campaign, was common practice–had nothing to do with the “Russia investigation” as normally understood. It was a mandate to trap Manafort in an irrelevant offense, presumably with the intent of getting dirt on Donald Trump.

Manafort had no such dirt to give, so today he is imprisoned, in failing health, paying an extraordinary penalty for an offense for which many wealthy and powerful lobbyists have gone entirely unpunished. Manafort was singled out only because he had the temerity to serve in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. This suggests that the entire Mueller enterprise was corrupt from the beginning.

Whatever else Rosenstein told Mueller remains secret to this day.

Why?

Now there is more. The Justice Department has recently allowed members of some congressional committees to view the scope memos, and out of that has come the news that there was a third scope memo to Mueller. Dated October 20, 2017, its contents remain a secret. But its very existence suggests something was going on behind the scenes in the relationship of Mueller and his supervisors at the Justice Department.

Was Mueller heading off in new directions, with Rosenstein belatedly giving him authorization to proceed? Was Mueller proposing to investigate people or events not known when he was originally appointed? Was there something else?

At the moment, the third scope memo, like most of the second scope memo, remains a secret.

Given what we now know about Russiagate and Mueller’s partisan “investigation,” there is no reason for such secrecy. Americans deserve to know what Bob Mueller looked into, and–this is a separate question–why. This whole operation has zero credibility, and its basis needs to be exposed to the light of day.

Obama Lies Were the Foundation of the Schumer and Pelosi Lies about President Trump, the Person AND the Administration

The External Roots of Spygate

by Leo Goldstein at American Thinker:

.

Over the past three years, the MSM has done a thorough job brainwashing its captive audience into believing that Putin preferred, supported, or even colluded with Trump in the 2016 elections. Not only was this untrue, but even the idea of such a preference, much less collusion, was ridiculous in the U.S. in the spring of 2016. Russia was our ally in the fight against terror, and CIA Director John Brennan visited FSB head Gennadiy Bortnikov in Moscow in March 2016.

Not Trump, but the Democratic party and Hillary Clinton personally were the perfect fit for Putin. Hillary Clinton started her tenure as Secretary of State by implementing a “reset” with Russia in 2009. During 2012, Russia joined the World Trade Organization, and the West bought from it hot air (carbon credits). Later that year, Obama was caught on mic promising Medvedev that he would become even more accommodating towards Russia after the election. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama sold Uranium One to Russia, organized the transfer of dual-use technology in Skolkovo, and allied themselves with Russian-funded groups against fracking and pipelines in the U.S.  Allegations that Putin had a personal grudge against Hillary, and kept it for five years, are just laughable.

Trump conducted a Miss Universe pageant in Russia in 2013, and that was all. As a presidential candidate, he promised a U.S. military buildup, and he said the U.S. should shoot down Russian interceptors that were reportedly harassing U.S. military planes in international airspace, after appropriate diplomatic steps.

The ideation of a Putin-Trump association and of Russian interference on Trump’s behalf came from Western Europe. People of Germany, Britain, and other EU states were dissatisfied with policies robbing them of their sovereignty.  European politicians wanted to crush dissent, and Russia and Putin became a convenient boogeyman. The government of Angela Merkel blamed Russia for public protests. This is how Obama advisor Ben Rhodes illustrated this attitude in his book The World as It Is:

In Germany, Merkel’s spokesperson told me about how fake news impacted their politics… A rape, for instance, caused a huge outcry in a community. For days, there were protests, political fallout. … “And we trace the story, and it started with a social media user with a German-sounding name, but something is not exactly right. The name is a little off. And the server, it is not German…Russians…”

Later, James Clapper expressed a similar sentiment, saying that the Russians are “almost genetically driven to co-opt, penetrate, gain favor, whatever.” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged comparable texts immediately before officially launching Crossfire Hurricane.

Rhodes’ quote continues:

I thought about all the made-up stories about Hillary — her ill health, her corruption, her crimes.

Sorry for making you laugh amid such a serious matter.

Apparently, the hysteria about alleged Russian internet operations was based on a small study of coordinated political trolling in Latvia. The study didn’t include Germany, Britain, or any other large European country, and its conclusions are inapplicable to them. But the study is clear on one point:

…the influence of pro-Russian trolling on leading US media outlets demonstrated the opposite outcome to that expected.

While Germans protested Merkel’s immigration policies, the British demanded freedom from the European Union, and were preparing to vote on Brexit. The old guard, which has almost stolen the country from its citizens, also blamed Russia and Putin.

In April 2016, Obama went to Britain to stomp against Brexit, an interference in British domestic affairs, obviously inviting reciprocation — interference from the British government in the U.S. elections on behalf of the Democratic party. Here, the connection between Trump and the U.S. elections was even stronger. Rhodes laments:

 …the Brexit campaign was tapping into the same sense of nationalism and nostalgia that the Trump campaign was promoting back home: the days of Churchill, the absence of immigrants and intrusive international institutions.

The Obama administration’s desire to subject this country to intrusive international institutions is an important admission. Trump is a defender of U.S. sovereignty, and such institutions are its enemies.

The Eurocrats confused the invented threat of “Russian influence campaigns” with the real prospect that Trump would not be their ally against their own people — unlike Obama or Hillary. In their imagination, the Trump-Putin nexus was natural. Ben Rhodes unintentionally confirms this point by quoting the chief of staff to then Prime Minister David Cameron:

“You’re not worried that he [Trump] can win? Putin would like nothing more.  Some of our people,” he said, referring to conservatives who support Brexit, “say that he’s tapped into something with this immigration issue.”

The Obama administration’s propensity to accommodate EU and UN agendas primed it to believe lies about Trump. It looks as if the Obama administration imported both the obsession with “Russian influence campaigns” and the wacky idea of a Trump-Putin connection. European governments created projects to combat “Russian influence campaigns” at home and abroad, joined by the Obama administration in April 2016.

On May 13, exactly one week after CrowdStrike privately attributed the DNC hacking to an imaginary GRU hacking group APT28 (“Fancy Bear”), German secret police (BfV) publicly blamed the same imaginary group for the Bundestag hacking that happened a year earlier. The DNC emails, published by WikiLeaks on July 22, were probably leaked by a disgruntled Bernie supporter, unrelated to hacking.

In mid-April 2016, Bruce & Nellie Ohr were in contact with the German Embassy, discussing with its first secretary what the Germans called “Impact of Russian influence operations in Europe (‘PsyOps/InfoWar’)” and the embassy’s offer to provide “Russia analysts.” They also invited the secretary to their house. What came out of it is unknown because they deleted the emails immediately.

By the end of May, the conspiracy theory of Trump-Putin collusion has been already developed. Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch has testified:

…the constellation of things that have come to be known as the Russia investigation, things were brought to my attention in 2016, I believe it was the spring… the late spring …by the Director [Comey] and Deputy Director [McCabe]… And over the course of the summer most of briefings on that issue were shifted to the National Security Council level.

The National Security Council Principals are “some of the highest-ranking officials in the government, including the secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, and Homeland Security, the attorney general, the head of the CIA, the White House chief of staff, UN ambassador, and more.” All of them were Obama appointees. All of them had been told to toe the party line — that Trump was not an ordinary candidate, but a suspected Putin agent. The only problem with this theory was total lack of evidence.

We live in the 21st century. Contacts and connections between people in different countries are routine.  Words and contacts between the Trump associates and Russia, whether real or invented, could not, even when misinterpreted in the worst possible way, rise to the level of “collusion.” Despite that, by the end of May 2016 the case against Trump was already formed and even escalated to the level of the National Security Council. It had no supporting evidence, but plenty of contradictory facts. And then the DNC contractor Fusion GPS hired Steele. Together, they manufactured the “evidence” — the infamous Steele dossier. CrowdStrike was already hired. (Note the timing: the first CrowdStrike report went out on June 14, and the first Steele report was dated by June 20.) Both DNC contractors would be churning out their reports through December 2016. The rest is history.

Is Our America Already a One Party Leftist Fascist Nation?

 

Nearly all of our today’s American  communications industry covering “news” and how citizens should think and  vote is  controlled overwhelmingly by  leftist trained fascistic and feminist  Democrats and Socialists of today’s American  newsprint, television, and education world.

Only radio  allows  conservative and other open-minded and tolerant  Americans to make contact with the public  something other than today’s Democrat Party  leftist socialist-fascism selling its wares.   PBS, CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and CBS are all  major preachers of leftism’s socialist fascism when it comes to selling news and politics.

These elitist  fascists at PBS do tolerate conservatives as losers.   About 5% members at the PBS tables were allowed, likely hired, to represent something fair and balanced during presidential election night, November 8, 2016. ……ghr
