Warning to America  

Ray DiLorenzo


Filmmaker and Cuban-American citizen, Agustin Blazquez, recently spoke with the Daily Caller and warned that what he sees is disturbing, that America is on the verge of becoming a Communist country unless citizens realize the devastating consequences.

Blazquez stated that growing up, he never envisioned that his home country of Cuba would ever become a true Communist country, and now, he sees the same lies and deceptions being played from the left by using “very non-threatening words, like progressive and liberal in order to advance the control of American lives.”

Blazquez told the Daily Caller that watching American youth embracing Bernie Sanders “..strikes me as absurd.  It is the end result of the Marxist education and media propaganda that has anesthetized too many Americans who do not defend the values that made America exceptional.”

In another report, ‘The Socialism Experience’, written by Juan F, Garcia, M.D., Dr. Garcia writes about his experience living under Socialism/Communism in Cuba and what he sees happening in America.

Garcia states, “I am motivated to write this document early in the Socialist/Communist takeover of my country so I won’t have the same regrets that I had in my old country, Cuba, 50 years ago by not explaining to my friends what the big Communist plan was all about.”

News You Can Use



Venezuela Update

Venezuelans are now eating cats, dogs, and street pigeons for food.  A number of multinational companies have stopped production or ceased operations as raw materials and capital have vanished.  US Chronicle, International Business Times


Editor’s note:  Venezuela is a country with tremendous potential, a country sitting on massive oil reserves.  Instead, they blame their troubles on low oil prices, but that is wrong.  Their serious problems started almost twenty years ago with the Hugo Chavez transition from capitalism to socialism – the promises of Sanders/Clinton-like nirvana, the price controls (affordable prices, but nothing to buy), the over-regulation, the printing of money to pay its debt (hyperinflation that has left half the population in poverty).  At home, Obama has been printing almost a TRILLION dollars a year (Quantitative Easing) and infusing it into the stock market, inflating the price of stock. This ‘bubble’ will eventually burst, causing a crash that will make 2008 look trivial.  If Hillary Clinton is any kind of capitalist, it’s a crony capitalist, picking and choosing winners and losers depending on how much they ‘donate’ to her cause (herself).


The ‘progressive’ aka socialist and panderer-in-chief

There is a tenacious and substantial effort today in the United States, by unscrupulous people (George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, most of the Democrat Party) to adopt socialism and abandon capitalism. Their effort, having been commenced decades ago, is not to create nirvana, but to establish a permanent power base to a populace left uneducated, a culture left decimated and a citizenry left unarmed.  


                                              “The goal of socialism is communism”

Vladimir Lenin


Wendy’s to Replace Workers

Wendy’s plans to replace cashiers with self-service kiosks at 6000 locations to replace cashiers.  The self-service kiosks will be available in the second half of the year as minimum wage laws push up wages.  McDonald’s has been testing these kiosks, but Wendy’s seems to be leading the effort.  Townhall, National Review

Editor’s note:  Contrary to the ‘progressive’ left’s philosophy, businesses do not go into business to hire workers.  They hire workers in order to go into business.  A minimum wage was never designed to be a ‘living wage.’   It was designed to give an inexperienced and unskilled young person a chance to work at a transitional job at a fair wage commensurate with their skill level. Minorities are often hit the hardest by minimum wage laws. Whether there is a recession or not, countries like Spain, South Africa and Greece will always show a high unemployment rate (25% or higher) due to their generous minimum wage laws. 



Obama’s War on Suburbs – Update

Last week we reported that Obama wants to control and punish communities that are too white or affluent by establishing the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule (AFFHR) which will put into Federal control suburban neighborhoods. That is, Washington will decide the type of housing, race, class and ethnicity in our cities and towns.

The Republican-led Senate has voted to fund Obama’s war on suburbs…


by a vote of 60 – 37, not voting 3.  Senators not voting were Ted Cruz, Bernard Sanders and Barbara Boxer.


This rule is a massive power grab by progressive bureaucrats to allow them to conduct social experiments with our neighborhoods.  This result will undoubtedly undermine local control.

Editor’s note:  The Republicans may have thought that they would appear to be racist if they voted against it.  If given the chance, they would probably vote to have five more families move into each of our homes so as not to look socially unjust.  We used to wonder when the push back would occur.  With Trump running for president, wonder no more.  The people of this country are not merely angry, they are furious. We suggest everyone contact their senator and find out how they voted on S81-114.2016.


In Case You Missed It

The Kremlin Has 20,000 Clinton Emails

The Kremlin now has in their possession at least 20,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server.  They are in the process of deciding if they should be released.  The Russians stumbled upon them while monitoring Romanian computer hacker, Lazar Lehel, better known as “Guccifer.”  He was being watched closely after he failed to hack into Russia’s RT television network.  The Russians were able to record Lehel’s actions which allowed Russian intelligence analysts, in 2013, to not only detect his breaking into Hillary Clinton’s private server, but break in and copy all of its contents.  The Political Insider, Gateway Pundit, WCBM 680

Editor’s note:  Hillary can’t be happy about this development.  This could easily show Clinton’s extreme carelessness with State Department correspondence as well as show how she used the Clinton Foundation to accept bribes from foreign governments.  The Russians did release a limited number of them to RT Television in 2013.  No Western journalist promoted this story during that year.

Undermining the military May 28, 2016

Editors Note: Now from Obama Factor: Get Ready To Scramble and Paint it Red…

Undermining the military

Along with budget reduction, the armed forces must endure social engineering

By James A. Lyons – – Wednesday, July 29, 2015


When President Obama announced that he was going to “fundamentally transform” America, not many Americans understood the full depth of that statement. Based on an assessment of his policies over the last six and half years, clearly one of Mr. Obama’s objectives has been to diminish America’s standing and leadership role throughout the world. One result has been that our allies now don’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear us — the worst possible combination.

The humiliation of the United States resulting from Mr. Obama’s total capitulation on all our key objectives on Iran’s nuclear weapons program is merely another manifestation of that objective. He went beyond our stated objectives and conceded our national honor. He humiliated this great country before our friends, allies and most importantly, our enemies. This is unconscionable. He has strengthened our sworn enemy, one which has vowed to destroy us. Furthermore, he has not only guaranteed Iran will achieve a nuclear weapons capability, it will also receive the most modern conventional weapons, seriously jeopardizing our position in the Persian Gulf — an area that even President Carter deemed of vital interest to the United States. The silence coming from the Joint Chiefs of Staff on this agreement is deafening. That says it all.

Of course, when you want to take down a country, one of the first things you do is undercut its military. That’s why “sequestration” turned out to be the “perfect storm” for the Obama administration. Making our military forces absorb 50 percent of the budget reductions when the Department of Defense only represents 20 percent of the federal budget makes no sense. We should not forget that sequestration was an Obama administration initiative.

Compounding the crushing budget reduction on our military forces is the social engineering that has been forced on our military. The United States military was unquestionably the most potent military force in the world. That is no longer the case. The deliberate forced budget reductions have been compounded by the use of the military as a social engineering laboratory promoting Mr. Obama’s political and social agenda, and our military is now in serious decline. Our military leadership regretfully have been silenced by the administration’s “political correctness” Gestapo watchdogs.

Aside from the significant force reductions, which have reduced the size of the Army to what it was prior to WWII, and the Navy to the size it was prior to WWI, the readiness of these forces is down approximately 50 percent. Also, the U.S. Air Force is the smallest it has been in its history. Under the guise of “diversity” as our number one priority — with women being forced fed into more combat-related roles — unit integrity, cohesiveness and morale have been severely degraded. Clearly, this is all part of the Obama administration’s objective of eliminating the warrior mentality embodied by our military. That mentality is crucial to achieving victory in all its dimensions. Our ships, aircraft squadrons, and infantry units are often commanded by less than the “best” because of political correctness.

The recent announcement by Secretary of Defense Ash Carter that rules barring transgenders from serving in the military are “outdated” should raise the caution flag. He announced on July 15 that the military will allow transgender members to serve openly starting next year. Someone must have spiked the water at the Pentagon. Clearly, lifting this restriction, combined with the removal of the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule, lowers the moral fiber of our once proud military.

As Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins, who stated in a July 12 Wall Street Journal article, our policymakers and the media are doing no favor either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defense rather than as a “mental disorder” that deserves understanding, treatment, and prevention. Amen.

Dr. McHugh further states that this intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a “mental disorder” in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken. It does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes. He clearly points out that this psychological problem is correctable with “proper treatments.” It certainly should not be treated as a “civil rights” issue. He goes on to state that there are a number of studies that show that there are fundamental problems with those championing transgender equality.

A 2011 study at the Swedish Karolinska Institute followed 324 people who had sex reassignment surgery. After about 10 years, they experienced increasing mental difficulties and the suicide mortality rose almost 20 fold above the comparable non transgender population. This is serious cause for concern which our military should not have to cope with.

The Pentagon needs to get over the cliche that “we don’t want people living a lie.” Serving in the military is not a right. It is a privilege, and the standards must remain high. Those high standards are not arbitrary. They are based on the results of what must be instilled in our military personnel and are profoundly necessary in combat when facing life and death situations. It is a key to restoring our military to its preeminent world position, the finest combat force in the world.

The top priority for our military is the security of this great country. For that, we require the “best and brightest.” The military should never be a laboratory for a political agenda.

Misrepresenting the Threat of Islam May 27, 2016











Misrepresenting the Threat of Islam

by James A. Lyons and Clare M. Lopez on May 26, 2016

Exclusive to Accuracy in Media

One of the worst things that political and military leaders of a country at war can do is to misrepresent, or not understand, the threat doctrine and objectives of the enemy. Like it or not, America has been at war since November 1979 when Iran took over our embassy in Tehran.

On 15 May 2016, The Washington Post carried an article by retired General David Petraeus, which was his attempt to offer some insights for our next President on how to combat the current threat posed by the Islamic State (IS). He also attempted to address the broader Islamic jihadist ideology that animates them! In so doing, there is an unstated presumption throughout the article that “Islam is a religion of Peace” that has been hijacked by Islamic extremist groups, e.g., Al-Qaeda, Islamic State, al-Nusrah, etc. Nothing could be further from the truth.

General Petraeus fails to mention that the so-called “violent extremist groups” are all part of the Global Jihadists Movement (GJM). They, in fact, are carrying out the core principles of Islam as specified in the Quran, Shariah and the hadiths. Muslims do not consider Islam to be a “religion.” They call it a “complete way of life.” Clearly, our leaders need to understand that Islam is a totalitarian ideology, governed by an alien legal system called Shariah that obligates all Muslims to carry out jihad to conquer the world and subjugate it to Islamic Law. Jihadists plan to accomplish this by capturing our “soul” through the use of terror. Not understanding this is how we find ourselves in our current predicament.

To be clear, the doctrine of Shariah is not espoused by all Muslims. However, as pointed out by Andrew Bostom in his 15 March 2016 article in PJ Media, Shariah supremacism with its hateful bellicosity and bigotry remains regrettably the predominant mindset of the world’s Muslims. He states, based on the latest available information, that 77% of Muslims from the five largest Sunni Muslim populations and 83% of Shiite Iranians want Shariah as the law of the land. Furthermore, 91% of liberated Iraqis and 90% of Afghan Muslims support Shariah as well. So much for Muslim help!

Worse yet, Petraeus not so subtly actually attacked our First Amendment rights when he expressed his concern over the current political dialogue that highlights the threat from Muslims and Islam. This was unconscionable! He has fallen into the trap of “Don’t criticize or take a position that might offend” the seventh century sensibilities of the followers of Islam. Perhaps he forgot that one of the reasons our military is fighting against the threat is to protect our Constitution and our way of life.

By his comments, Petraeus is in effect is supporting the global campaign to impose Islamic blasphemy law on all non-Muslim societies. This campaign is led by the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation and, regrettably, has been supported by our last Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

Nonetheless, he believes such statements that accurately describe the threat undermine our ability to defeat “Islamist extremists by alienating and undermining the Muslims we need to help us to win.” Of course, his view is based on his experience in Anbar province. He succeeded in rolling back AQI in Iraq because he bought the Anbar Sheikhs with pallets of shrink-wrapped U.S. dollars. Aside from the money, Sunni tribes were tired of assassinations and atrocities led by Baghdad’s Shiite government and AQI.

When President George W. Bush conducted the invasion of Iraq in 2003, he destroyed the Sunni-Shiite balance of power by decimating Saddam Hussein’s Sunni Army. The Iraqi Army was disbanded, a tragic mistake, because it provided a trained military to al-Qaeda in Iraq which eventually morphed into the Islamic State. Compounding this problem, the U.S. State Department wrote a new constitution for Iraq that made Shariah the law of the land under a Shiite government, a move which was a sure-fire recipe for a civil war that continues to this day.

It must be understood, Muslims fight to defend their own family, tribe, clan and of course, Islam—not because they think the Islamic State is somehow “not Islamic” or has hijacked their faith. Likewise, Sunni governments will use asymmetric warfare by underwriting influence operations through their many international organizations, including the migration of Shariah-compliant Muslims to non-Muslim countries. At the same time, they allied with us to protect their ruling families and interests by basing our forces in their countries.

The next president must combat the current threat by planning strategically about what’s best for our long term interests and objectives. Clearly, Iran with its apocalyptic “Twelver” mindset must be prevented from becoming the regional nuclear-armed hegemon.

What we are seeing in the Middle East region is the traditional Sunni-Shia sectarian fight that has gone on for over a thousand years. We must address the IS threat in a way that restores the Sunni-Shia balance in the region while not advancing Iran’s objectives. However, we should not expend one more American life to sustain the regimes in Baghdad and Damascus. They are puppet governments under Iran’s control. If Iran wants to keep them in power, let Iran expand its resources.

We should focus our efforts on enhancing the security of our principal ally in the region, Israel, as well as the Kurds. We should be providing the Kurds direct military aid. Clearly, we need to prevent the spread of IS into Libya and Tunisia. Lastly, we need to ensure that freedom of navigation remains a core principal for the region.
