The People Strike Back 

Ray DiLorenzo

On November 8, 2016, the people struck back.  They struck back at uncontrolled immigration, open borders, unemployment, a shrinking middle class, appeasement of Islamic terrorism, creeping socialism, a massive government out of control, an anti-American education system that has indoctrinated rather than educated, a biased mainstream media and a corrupt elite political class that saved all the prime cuts for themselves and made promises they had no ability or intention of keeping.

This election was and remains a movement.  A movement to reclaim the principles of American Republicanism,*  a movement, started by the Tea Party, for limited government, free and equitable markets, fiscal responsibility and putting American interests first.  The movement has given the political class what it has long needed, a swift kick in the ass.  Donald Trump was the only one listening.

The post-election protesters represent fifty plus years of indoctrination by our education system that has produced  several generations of amoral, permissive deadbeats…those that feel they are owed a livelyhood, a free home, a free college education, free medical care and a permanent trip to the beach on the taxpayers dime. These are people that received a trophy for just showing up to play team sports when they were kids.

With eleven states supporting more people than are working, the fat lady is warming up.

The mass media and demogogues like George Soros are agitating the leftists that they helped create. Is it any wonder there is rioting and civil unrest?  Some observers and pundits are even suggesting the possibility of civil war.  May God help us.

*Editor’s note:  Republicanism:  A form of government (as originally created by the founding fathers) that stresses liberty and unalienable individual rights, making people sovereign while rejecting monarchy, aristocracy and inherited power. Leaders are elected for a specific period by the citizenry where laws are passed for the benefit of the entire republic, rather than a select elite.  In an ideal republic, leaders are selected among the working citizenry, serve for a defined period, then return to their work, never to serve again. Republicanism stresses the rule of law, separation of powers, self-discipline, self-reliance and the dangers of corruption.  In a true republic, lawmakers would never pass laws and then exempt themselves from those laws.

Why We Have an Electoral College

A perfect illustration of the genius of the Founding Fathers

 

9735195f-4e15-40ef-a8d0-512fed60804b

 

An Electoral College system requires:

 

*  Presidential candidates to have multi-regional appeal.

*  Political balance–prevents big states from consistently choosing next president. Candidates must listen to all voters. No state can be ignored.

Every state or region has a voice.

*  Avoids run-off elections if neither candidate receives majority of the vote

Objection to the Electoral College is a testament to the ignorance of so many voters and their lack of education in American Government.

Editor’s note:  On Election Night so many people were trying to access the Canadian government’s immigration website that it got overloaded and shut down.

An applicant for immigration to Canada will be asked questions about prior nationality, age, language abilities, family members, education, age, work experience, income and/or net worth, details on any job offer.  Notice as published on their website: “The information is for reference only and no immigration decision will be made based on your answers.” cic.gc.ca

The leftists need to understand that, in spite of their criticism of Donald Trump and our immigration laws, the vast majority of nations don’t just let anyone immigrate to their country.  Unlike the U.S., no other nation is interested in taking in people who cannot or will not take care of themselves.

Editor’s note:  The mainstream media can take a bow for much of the rioting with their contentious headlines. Leftists, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, call them what you want.  They NEVER take ‘No’ for an answer.  They never give up.  If they can’t come in from the front door, they will try the backdoor. If that doesn’t work, they will crawl through a window.  Obama, after the election, said, “The sun will come out tomorrow.” Was that a sentiment of reinforcement of the election process or a signal to his supporters?

European Populist Candidates To Benefit From ‘Trump Effect’  

The next two major European elections in Austria and France may see victories for populist, nationalist candidates thanks to the Trump victory. Norbert Hofer in Austria and Marine Le Pen in France share the same views on mass migration and open borders, and both are running for the presidency of their respective countries.  These candidates were considerred outsiders with little chance of winning, but now are getting a second look by observers. They are now considerd a real threat to the establishment.  Breitbart

 

Editor’s note:  Where previously people were reluctant to admit they would vote for any of these candidates, people are now becoming bold in their admission. The Austrian election is in December, 2016, with the French election scheduled for April of next year for the first round and the following May for the final round.

 

House Republicans Win National Vote By Three Million

Editor’s note:  It seems the Obama/Clinton/Bush clans have done major damage to their respective parties.  Somewhere along the way they forgot about the people they took an oath to represent.

Source: FBI has evidence Hillary visited ‘Orgy Island’

Huma Abedin said to be cooperating with investigators

Citing a “well-placed source” in the New York Police Department, Blackwater USA founder and retired Navy SEAL Erik Prince claims that among the 650,000 Huma Abedin emails on her estranged husband’s laptop is evidence Hillary Clinton, as well as former President Bill Clinton, was a visitor to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Caribbean hideaway, known as “Orgy Island.”

Prince told the Breitbart News Daily radio show that Abedin and her estranged husband, former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, are now cooperating with authorities in multiple investigations of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

“They found State Department emails,” he said of FBI investigators. “They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times.”

In May, FoxNews.com reported Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on Epstein’s infamous Boeing 727 “Lolita Express” jet than previously reported.

Flight logs show he took at least 26 trips and apparently even ditched his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights. The manifests for the trips, between 2001 and 2003, identified fellow passengers by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The jet was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

FoxNews.com reported in July that attorneys for Epstein touted his close friendship with Bill Clinton and even claimed the billionaire helped start the Clinton Global Initiative.

Emails that surfaced in August showed famed defense attorney Roy Black was deemed too controversial to host an event for President Obama because he represented Epstein against charges of trafficking nearly three-dozen underage girls for sex for himself and his powerful friends. Black and co-counsel Alan Dershowitz were able to secure a deal in 2008 in which Epstein pleaded guilty to only one count related to prostitution with a minor. Epstein registered as a sex offender and served, partly in home detention, just 13 months of a 19-month sentence.

Meanwhile, in a bizarre twist, Wikileaks published Friday an email inviting Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, to a “spirit cooking dinner” hosted by performance artist Marina Abramovic, which features an occult ritual created by Satanist Aleister Crowley.

A tweet from WikiLeaks’ Twitter account hinted there is far more to the story: “The Podestas’ ‘Spirit Cooking’ dinner? It’s not what you think. It’s blood, sperm and breastmilk. But mostly blood.

John Podesta’s brother, Tony Podesta, forwarded the June 28, 2015, email in which Abramovic wrote: “I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina.”

Tony Podesta wrote to his brother, above the forwarded email: “Are you in NYC Thursday July 9 Marina wants you to come to dinner.”

In another tweet regarding the exchange, WikiLeaks commented: “Tony Podesta. By Day, mild mannered Foreign Agent for Saudi Arabia. By night, Spirit Cooker.”

Abramovic was touted in New York Magazine as “the world’s most famous performance artist.” She has published a new memoir, “Walk Through Walls,” and appeared in a video with rapper Jay Z, who is campaigning for Hillary Clinton tonight in Ohio.

‘So disgusting’

Prince said the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in the Weiner investigation but received “huge pushback” from the Justice Department.

“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince told Breitbart News Daily.

Abedin, who has been at Hillary Clinton’s side throughout the 2016 campaign, was immediately removed from the campaign trail after FBI Director James Comey informed Congress last Friday of the discovery of the 650,000 emails and the decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information.

Abedin appeared for the first time on behalf of Clinton since last Friday at a fundraiser Thursday night in Washington, D.C., CBS News reported.

Clinton campaign aides confirmed to CBS she was working from the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters this week.

The Lies and Stonewalling by the Obama Administration on Benghazi Continue For A Reason.

Editor’s Note: From the Citizens Commission on Benghazi and our great friends at Accuracy in Media and with special thanks to Michael Patrick Leahy and Breitbart: The obstruction of justice and sabotage by willful blindness and intentional criminal disregard continues with the Obama Administration by intentionally stonewalling ongoing discovery of the murder investigation at Benghazi.

Breitbart:

More than four years after Breitbart News submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to obtain a copy of a document titled “The State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya,” the State Department says “The estimated completion date (ECD) for this case is February 2017.”

The State Department informed Breitbart News that the estimated completion date was now February 2017 in a September 7, 2016 email, responding to an inquiry made several days earlier.

Breitbart News subsequently asked the State Department to accelerate the estimated completion date to before the presidential election on November 8, but has not received a response to several such requests.

Breitbart News submitted FOIA request F-2012-36006 on September 14, 2012, three days after Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya by Islamists.

On the day the FOIA request was submitted,  Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt told Breitbart News: “The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you’re inviting it.”

State Department Stonewalling Breitbart FOIA Request for Benghazi Document After Four Years

by Michael Patrick Leahy3 Nov 2016

More than four years after Breitbart News submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to obtain a copy of a document titled “The State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya,” the State Department says “The estimated completion date (ECD) for this case is February 2017.”

The State Department informed Breitbart News that the estimated completion date was now February 2017 in a September 7, 2016 email, responding to an inquiry made several days earlier.

Breitbart News subsequently asked the State Department to accelerate the estimated completion date to before the presidential election on November 8, but has not received a response to several such requests.

Breitbart News submitted FOIA request F-2012-36006 on September 14, 2012, three days after Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya by Islamists.

On the day the FOIA request was submitted,  Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt told Breitbart News: “The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you’re inviting it.”

Hunt told Breitbart News that the new State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, approved and signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton since the 2011 fall of Khadafi’s regime, severely compromised the safety and security of murdered Ambassador Stevens and all American diplomatic staff in Libya.

He also stated that the decision not to staff Benghazi with Marines was made by Secretary of State Clinton when she attached her signature to the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document. Breitbart News has subsequently learned that under those rules of engagement, Secretary Clinton prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in Libya.

“It was the policy of the Obama administration to have a low profile in Libya. That’s why the rules of engagement were approved by the Secretary of State to have no Marines at Benghazi, and to have an American contractor hire Libyan nationals to provide security there. The rules were they couldn’t have ammunition,” Hunt told Breitbart News on September 14, 2012.

“Obama may not have known the details of the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, but his Chief of Staff and National Security Advisor would have. The Secretary of State absolutely would have,” the Fox News military analyst added:

The Department of State Security are the people in charge of diplomatic security. They enforce the rules of engagement, which are set at Clinton’s level at State. The Department of Defense was told we’re not going to have Marines at Benghazi. Whether it goes higher than the Secretary of State to the President, I don’t know.

Hunt added that the rules of engagement specific to each country or military situation are drawn up by State Department lawyers and approved by the chain of command. “There should be a document with Hillary’s signature and the Secretary of Defense’s specific to Libya. It was signed after Khadafi fell from power. You’ll have to ask the State Department to get the document. They might claim it’s classified, but it shouldn’t be.”

The State Department has rules of engagement documents that are different for different countries. In our embassies in London and Paris, for instance, it’s always a mystery if the Marines at the embassies have ammunition in their weapons.

Breitbart has periodically inquired with the State Department about the status of FOIA request F-2012-36006.

 

Breitbart News made the most recent request on Monday, asking the State Department to complete its response to the FOIA request by Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 5:00 pm eastern.

“It is important for the public to learn the content of this requested document prior to the 2016 presidential election held next week on November 8 because it will provide information concerning the national security record of one of the candidates, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,” Breitbart News said in the email.

“If the State Department fails to complete its response to FOIA request F-2012-36006 by Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 5:00 pm eastern, please explain why this failure is not an effort to conceal this important information from the American people prior to the presidential election,” the email concluded.

As of Thursday, the State Department has not responded.

For more than four years, Breitbart News has reported on several unanswered questions related to the September 11, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya. In addition to withholding the missing “State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya” document, the State Department has never adequately explained why Marines were not posted to guard the American embassy in Tripoli, the consulate in Benghazi, or anywhere in the entire country of Libya.

On September 14, 2012, Marine Corps spokesman Captain Kendra Mott told Breitbart News that “regarding no Marines at the embassy/consulate in Libya: Embassy security in Tripoli and the consulate in Benghazi fall under the Regional Security Officer with the State Department.”

The embassy in Tripoli and the consulate in Benghazi do not have a MCESG detachment. Typically, when a new embassy is established, it takes time to grow a new MCESG detachment. In coordination with the State Department, there was discussion about establishing a detachment in Tripoli sometime in the next five years.

“Regarding ROE [Rules of Engagement]: The Marine Corps does not establish ROE for MCESG detachments or other embassy security forces; that is the responsibility of the State Department and/or operational commanders depending on the command relationship. Regardless, ROE are classified and release of that information would jeopardize the Marines and U.S. interests. Any further inquiry should be directed to the State Department, since Marine security guards report to the ambassador not to a military commander,” Motz added.

The four years of stonewalling by the State Department on Breitbart’s FOIA request may be an additional indication that senior executives in the federal department are trying to aid Clinton’s election, consistent with new information reported by the Associated Press on Tuesday that “A State Department official appeared to coordinate with Hillary Clinton’s campaign team hours before the former secretary of state’s exclusive use of private emails was first detailed in a news account last year, newly released hacked emails show.”:

Emails from the files of Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta show that the department official provided Clinton aides with the agency’s official response to a New York Times reporter in advance of the newspaper’s March 2015 report that Clinton had used a private email account to conduct all of her work-related business as secretary.

The stolen emails were released Wednesday by WikiLeaks, part of a massive trove of emails released by the document-leaking group on a daily basis since last month. WikiLeaks has indicated it intends to leak emails stolen from Podesta’s account every day through the election.

In a March 1, 2015 email, State Department press aide Lauren Hickey told Clinton’s team that then-State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki had “just cleared” a reply to the Times. Hickey provided the agency’s response to the Clinton aides and also appeared to agree to a change requested by the campaign, saying: “Yes on your point re records – done below.” It is not clear what specific change was requested and made.

State Department spokesman John Kirby said Wednesday that the department would not comment on alleged leaked documents. But he said the department’s effort to “provide accurate information to the media” about Clinton’s tenure at the agency has “at times required communicating with her representatives to ensure accuracy.”

On December 19, 2012, in a story titled “Benghazi Review Board Ignores Hillary’s ‘Rules of Engagement’ for Libya,” Breitbart News reported:

The special State Department report on Benghazi (known as the Accountability Review Board) released on Tuesday offered a blistering critique of mid-level State Department officials but left Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama relatively unscathed.

The report contains no mention of the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya believed to have been signed off on by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton some time in 2011. These restrictive rules prohibited the stationing of Marines anywhere in Libya for the purpose of defending American diplomatic facilities, and set the untenable “no bullets for local guards” security policy that contributed to the weak Benghazi defenses prior to the attack on September 11, 2012.

As Breitbart News reported in September 2013, “A staff report prepared for Rep. Darrell Issa and released today finds numerous failings in the ARB report on Benghazi released last year. The new report overturns some of the conclusions of the official ARB report. It finds that Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy, who was not criticized in the ARB report, should have been held accountable.

Kennedy has figured prominently in recent Wikileaks email releases.

As Breitbart News reported in October, Kennedy was one of several “high-ranking officials under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton [who] repeatedly pressured the FBI to mark certain Clinton emails as ‘unclassified’ in order to protect her interests, according to an unnamed FBI agent interviewed during the probe into Clinton’s unauthorized use of private computer services.”

Several Republicans have called on Kennedy to resign over the details of what some called a “quid-pro-quo” arrangement.
