To The 68 Democrats That Refused to Attend The Inauguration:

 

Resign!

You have the right to speak your mind, but you do not have the right to set aside your constituents for political purposes.  You have chosen to ignore the people that you took an oath to represent.  You have set a terrible example to all the world as to what kind of nation we are…”One nation under God!”

 

What Happened to Hollywood?

Part 2

Ray DiLorenzo

This is part 2 of a two part article. Being an important topic, we did not want to exclude important points that would add to the understanding of the subject matter.  We conclude the article:

“A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious.  But it cannot survive treason from within…for the traitor appears not to be a traitor…he rots the soul of a nation…he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.”

Cicero

 

“We can’t expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they wake up one day to find that they have Communism.”

Nikita Kruschev

 

As a preface, this article is not about your run-of-the-mill ‘modern Communist’ that demands free health care, a free college education, or welfare for life.  We are discussing card-carrying, hard-core, loyal to the Soviet Union style Communists.

Part 2:

Even though the communists were strongest in the Screen Writers Guild, influencing the content of movies within a highly controlled studio system, especially after the war, proved tricky.  Hollywood Communists (the Party) were most successful in preventing content rather than creating content. Enter the Story Analysts Guild, organized by the Party.  Story analysts judged scripts for content and treatment.  A negative report would, in most cases, cause a studio to pass on a project. Thus, many scripts were suppressed which had any anti-Soviet content or scripts that showed religion and capitalism in a positive light.

Even some talent agents answered to Stalin.  Party organizer Robert Weber worked for the famous William Morris agency, where many Communist writers and directors were represented.  These agencies held considerable sway as to who worked and who didn’t work.  George Willner, a Communist agent that represented screenwriters, deliberately held non-communist clients’ stories preventing many scripts from becoming reality.  Smear campaigns were used by the Party to prevent famous non-communists from working such as Barabara Stanwyck, Lana Turner and Bette Davis.

These celebrities were among the many actors thwarting the Party-backed labor group, the Conference of Studio Unions (CSU).  The CSU was trying to shut down the studios, attempting to take control of studio labor, while the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), which had the power of the studios, was trying to keep them open.  Strikes and violence broke out. The Battle of Warner Brothers (WB) ensued in 1945.  Cars were overturned, the WB fire department turned their fire hoses on the crowd and WB private police threw gas grenades into the strikers.

Celebrities took sides. Kathryn Hepburn supported the CSU, reading speeches written by communist screen writer, Dalton Trumbo. Ronald Reagan, then a Democrat, headed the anti-communists in the talent guilds.

With other studios breaking out in violence, the prospect of Communists taking over Hollywood prompted Washington to scrutinize the situation, which resulted in an investigation by the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HCUAA), the first head of which was New York Democrat, Samuel Dickstein. Incredibly, Mr. Dickstein was found, through intercepted Soviet cables, to be working for Russian intelligence, strictly for money. After the war, the committee was dominated by right-wing Republicans.

During the war, the HCUAA argued for the internment of Japanese Americans and considered looking into the KKK in 1946, but decided not to, pushed by committee member, John E. Rankin (D-Miss), who remarked, “After all, the KKK is an old American institution.”

The HCUAA foolishly concentrated on film content and ignored testimony from industry giants like Walt Disney that it was not what the Party put in films, but the anti-communist material the party kept out of films.

Studio heads, although anti-communist, became defensive, asserting that no congressman could tell them how to run their business. Celebrities like Humphrey Bogart and Danny Kaye defended their co-workers. The hearings became a series of angry tirades by Stalinist writers, which became known as the Hollywood Ten.

Fearing bad publicity, studios did agree to fire known communists.  This was the beginning of the blacklist so consecrated by the Hollywood left as a neo-inquisition.  Many writers survived by becoming ghostwriters, selling scripts using fake names. It was ironic that the writers extolled the evils of capitalism while using the same to feed their families in the manner in which they had become accustomed, which would never have existed in a communist system.

By the 1960s, the blacklist was over and many writers’ names were restored to film credits, thanks to Otto Preminger and Kirk Douglas. Hollywood then proceded to deify the Hollywood Ten as gods of virtue.

Through the years, the Communist Party’s influence on Hollywood, the hearings, the Hollywood Ten, have all become sanitized as to the linkage to Stalin and the USSR.  The true nature of much of Hollywood’s ‘golden years’ has become clouded in legend which became myth.

The Hollywood paradox, which remains to this day, is that the Hollywood Communists, as the modern Hollywood left, as well as multitudes now in our government, media, and education system, hide behind the Constitution. They protect communism by invoking their civil liberties that wouldn’t last the blink of an eye in the system they are trying to establish. They demand their First Amendment right to assemble and speak their minds, even if their objective is the extermination of our country and the freedoms we enjoy.

When do civil liberties end and collusion with foreign powers and sedition commence?

Michigan Teacher Won’t Let Students Watch Trump Inauguration Speech

A teacher in Michigan reportedly will not allow his fourth-grade students to watch Trump’s inaguration speech.  In an email to parents, Brett Meteyer will allow his students to watch the inauguration ceremony, but he will not allow them to hear Trump’s speech because of fear of what Trump might say. No word on whether the students were shown the speech. Fox News, Washington Examiner, Truth Revolt

Editor’s note:  Teaching the young to be snowflakes and using children to make a political statement…an absurdity. Another illustration of why Democrats are having such a difficult time.  Hard to believe these people are allowed to teach our kids.

Man Tries To Set Himself On Fire to Protest Trump Inauguration

A man attempted to light himself on fire in front of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night.  The man was hospitalized with burns, but they were not life threatening.  Fox News

Editor’s note:  “…and then you’ll be sorry!”

Clinton Global Initiative Shutting Down

The Clinton Foundation has announced they are laying off 22 employees. The Clinton’s are moving ahead with plans to shut down the Clinton Global initiative amid dwindling donations.  It is not clear how many employees will remain with the Clinton Foundation.  Fox News, Breitbart

Editor’s note:  If this was indeed a charitable organization, why would they shut it down?  Do they no longer want to do good works?  The answer is simple. The Clintons were selling access and policy that they can no longer offer. The benefactors, past and prospective, saw no reason to donate or continue to donate. I wonder if anyone has asked for their money back. The swamp is beginning to drain.

In Case You Missed It

Eisenhower & Trump In Same Boat

Trump may very well find himself in the same situation as President Eisenhower.  During the 1950s, the relationship between the CIA and the NSA was badly strained. Documents show the CIA left the NSA out of one operation which the NSA read about in the newspapers when the Soviets discovered it in 1956.  Other documents show a number of intelligence failures relating to the USSR and Eastern Europe with additional failures relating to Stalin’s development of the hydrogen bomb. Eisenhower had had enough and brought in people from outside the government to improve America’s intelligence capabilities.

Eisenhower established the President’s Board of Consultants on Intelligence Activities.  Carter abolished the board in 1977, but Reagan reestablished it in 1981. Obama made little use of it and drastically cut its membership.

Trump has recently had a situation where “fake news” was presented to the President-Elect by U.S. intelligence officials AND leaked to the media. Trump blasted the intelligence agencies for allowing a false and fictitious report to be leaked to the public and called on the agencies to apologize.

Bob Woodward, the famed journalist called the “fake news” a garbage document not worthy of an intelligence briefing.  Conservative Base

“Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday.”

Joy Behar on Economics, 2009

 

“The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare.  Just the opposite!  We need more welfare and fewer jobs.”

“Eight more days and I can start telling the truth again.”

Senator Chris Dodd, on the campaign trail, 1996

Global Warming or Climate Change

 

Has anyone noticed that the mantra of Global Warming has now become the drone of Climate Change?  Why? Because they don’t have the slightest sense of what is going on.  Many scientists now say we are cooling.

The earth’s climate has always changed.  We’ve always had global warming then global cooling with cooling being the most dangerous, resulting in shorter growing seasons which dooms crop production.

43% of climate scientists say they are 95% sure that man-made CO2 is the dominant driver of climate change. So, all we have to do is get rid of a few billion people…solved.  I understand that many Islamists are working on the problem.

Global cooling can result in drought in many parts of the world.  Drought stricken California, whose biggest crop is left-wing nuts, after much recent rain, just let several trillion gallons of fresh water dump into the Pacific Ocean because the ‘environmentalists’ refuse to allow more dams to hold the water.

What is so alarming is that climate change or global warming or whatever has become its own religion with non-believers condemned to purgatory until they relent.  At the confirmation hearings for cabinet appointments, senators were asking appointees if they believed in climate change like an inquisitor in the middle ages asking if they were Catholic.

So, which is it?  Is it Global Warming because we drive cars or Climate Change because we use too much air conditioning or maybe our cows fart too much?

The left should at least be honest and come up with a poster that reads:

You Control Climate Change

 

Turn Down, Switch off, Recycle, Walk, Send Money

resulting in no arrests.

 

Editor’s note: Depending on the state, there are different types of homicide (the killing of a person by another person)…criminal (first degree or manslaughter), justifiable or excusable. heyjackass.com

You can blame much on a poor education system, gangs, a lack of jobs and an unresponsive government; but, a portion of the blame goes to the individuals who would not or could not find it within themselves to build  a better life.

FRENCH ALLIES WELCOME TRUMP INNAUGURATION WITH APPLAUSE, ENTHUSIASM by Rosine Ghwaji

FRENCH ALLIES WELCOME TRUMP INNAUGURATION WITH APPLAUSE, ENTHUSIASM

By Rosine Ghawji

As President Donald J. Trump took the oath of office at noon on Friday, some 3800 miles away in the French capital, a group of dozens of high-ranking French dignitaries hosted an American delegation in a festive celebration sponsored by French-American Friendship Association of Paris.  French dignitaries included members of the French Parliament, Members of the European Parliament, and members of academia and other elected officials

The American military and congressional contingent included Retired General Paul Vallely, former Deputy Commander of United States Pacific Command, former Congressman Mike Flanagan of Illinois, and best-selling military author and former U.S. Navy JAG Officer, Lieutenant Commander Don Brown, who represented four-star retired admiral James “Ace” Lyons, former commander of the United States Pacific Fleet.  Members of the French-Russian Association of Paris also attended to show support for the American delegation.

 

 

 

The event, held in the ballroom of Hotel Intercontinental Paris le Grand Hotel, and sponsored in part by the French-American Association of Paris, was covered in Europe and the Middle East by the I-24 Network, and by internationally-acclaimed journalist Christian Malard, who has interviewed more world leaders than any other active journalist.

President Trump’s inaugural address was applauded by the French hosts several times, but perhaps the most enthusiastic applause, surprisingly, came when the new President proclaimed “America First.”

After the inauguration, the French hosted a large cocktail party, followed by a large formal banquet in the Hotel’s grand Ballroom, which commenced with the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. After dinner, all members of the U.S. Delegation addressed the crowd, along with historian Frank Mitchell, author of DONALD TRUMP’S PLACE IN HISTORY: The Untold Story.

The loudest and most sustained applause came when Don Brown delivered Admiral Lyons’ remarks on advice the Admiral would give to President Trump. Addressing the crowd in French, Russian and English, Brown presented Lyons’ speech, which declared that America’s “eight-year nightmare with Barak Obama is finally over.” He called on President Trump to eradicate the Muslim Brotherhood from all positions in the federal government, to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, and to prosecute its members for sedition. To each of these suggestions, the crowd enthusiastically responded with approval and applause.

 

 

 

The historic Intercontinental Paris Le Grand Hotel, built in 1861 at the request of Emperor Napoleon III, has been the site for numerous Franco-American diplomatic events in the past, and has hosted prominent American leaders including Presidents Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, and Dwight Eisenhower. It has also hosted other notable Americans, including Ernest Hemmingway, Orson Wells, and Gregory Peck.

The historic commemoration of the Trump inauguration marks the first known event in which the French have invited an American delegation to celebrate the inauguration of an American President.

President Donald J. Trump’s America First Inauguration Speech

President Donald J. Trump’s America First Inauguration Speech

January 20, 2017

“Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

Every four years we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power.

And we are grateful to President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition.

They have been magnificent.

Thank you.

Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment.

It belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day.

This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves.

These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists.

Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.

An education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge.

And the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation, and their pain is our pain.

Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military.

We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own. And we’ve spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world. But that is the past, and now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our product, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs.

We will bring back our borders.

We will bring back our wealth, and we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation.

We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example.

We will shine for everyone to follow.

We will re-enforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions. It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.

We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.

So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again.

And, yes, together we will make America great again.

Thank you.

God bless you.

And God bless America.”

What Happened to Hollywood?

 

Part 1

Ray DiLorenzo

 

 

Where are the Jimmy Stewarts, the Bob Hopes, the Charleton Hestons? Where are the patriotic celebrities such as Barbara Stanwyck or Lana Turner? Who today is like Carole Lombard, who died while raising money selling war bonds?

 

Jimmy Stewart was a bomber pilot in the Army Air Corp, eventually promoted to the rank of Major General by President Ronald Reagan. Mel Brooks fought in the Battle of the Bulge.  Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. was a highly decorated naval officer of WW2, receiving the Silver Star and Legion of Merit.  Gene Hackman joined the Marines at 16 (he lied about his age) and served four and a half years as a field radio operator.  Mickey Rooney served in Patton’s 3rd Army, earning a Bronze Star.  Don Rickles joined the Navy after high school graduation and served between 1941-1946. Charleton Heston enlisted in the Army Air Corp in 1944 and served as an aerial gunner on a B-25 bomber. Heston narrated highly classified military and Department of Energy instructional films, particularly pertaining to nuclear weapons and, for six years, held the nation’s highest security clearance.

 

Hollywood’s reputation for pursuasion did not escape the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and Stalin, who controlled it.  They decided they had to take command of this great propaganda tool and, as luck would have it, conditions would soon turn to their advantage.

 

The Great Depression convinced many that capitalism was on its way out and that socialism was the future. In the 1930s, communists found it easy to join with liberals against Hitler’s Germany.  In 1935, the CPUSA set up a Hollywood branch of the party (the Party), albeit highly secretive. This unit was eminently successful in recruiting members, organizing unions and raising money from unsuspecting Hollywood liberals, and then using the funds to support Soviet causes like the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League.

 

During the period of the Nazi-Soviet Pact (prior to Hitler’s invasion of Russia), actor Melvin Douglas and screenwriter-director Phillip Dunne proposed that the Motion Picture Democratic Committee (the Committee), a collection of Industry Democrats, condemn Stalin’s invasion of Finland in 1939. But the group had been secretly infiltrated by communists, which rejected the resolution.  Dunne later described it in his 1980 memoir, Take Two, A life in Movies and Politics,  “All over town, the industrious communist tailwagged the lazy liberal dog.”

 

John Cogley, a socialist, in his 1956 Report on Blacklisting, concluded, “There was never an organized, articulate and effective liberal or left-wing opposition to the communists in Hollywood.”  

 

Communists considered writers “artists in uniform,” whose job was to raise consciousness and convey political messages.  Movies of the time were considered by communists to be “bourgeois decadence,” a tool of “capitalist distraction” and therefore subjugation.  Communist Party bosses V.J. Jerome and John Howard Lawson, a co-founder of the Screen Writers Guild, enforced the “art-is-a-weapon” dogma in Hollywood as they did in New York among New York dramatists.  Screenwriter Albert Maltz challenged the doctrine in 1946 in an article in New Masses saying, “An artist can be a great artist without being an intergrated or logical or a progressive thinker on all matters.”  Maltz was arguing that biased politics often resulted in poor writing.

 

As a result, Maltz went through a series of interrogations by the Party and was forced to publish a retraction, trashing his original article, saying, “…the unprincipled attacks upon the left that I have always repudiated and combated.”

 

Dalton Trumbo, a Communist Party member and for a time the highest paid screen writer in Hollywood (Roman Holiday, Spartacus), described screen writing as “literary guerilla warfare.”  Ayn Rand, then a Hollywood screenwriter (Atlas Shrugged) and one of the few in Hollywood who actually had lived under communist rule, pointed out that the American Communist writers, in their zeal, went to extraordinary lengths to show life in the USSR as a land of joyous, well-fed workers who loved their masters.  One movie, Mission To Moscow (1943), even whitewashed Stalin’s murderous show trials of the 1930s.

 

Even though the communists were strongest in the Screen Writers Guild, influencing the content of movies within a highly controlled studio system, especially after the war, proved tricky.

 

This is part 1 of a 2 part article.  Being an important topic, we did not want to exclude important points that would add to the understanding of the subject matter.  We will conclude the article next week.

California Secessionists Open Embassy In Moscow?

The Calexit movement has opened an ’embassy’ in Russia.  Louis Marinelli, the leader of the group promoting California become an independent country says, “We want to start laying the groundwork for a dialogue about an independent California joining the United Nations now.”  Los Angeles Times, Free Republic

 

Editor’s note: Hollywood would be in a foreign country…hmmmm!  If it wasn’t for California, Trump would have easily won the popular vote. I guess they want the backing of Russia in becoming an independent nation (so who’s really in league with the Russians?). There is no doubt they would be a communist nation, and in our neighborhood.  They can become the Cuba of the far west.  Isn’t that nice?

 

Sexual Assault Climbs By 70% in Sweden & 100% In Finland

Sexual assault in Sweden has increased by 70% in Sweden between the years 2005 – 2015.  In Finland, according to Yleisradio, Finland’s national public broadcaster, sexual assault has increased by over 100% in recent years.  The

Sweden Democrats are the only political force in Sweden that recognizes the danger of mass Muslim immigration, and for this they have been routinely demonized as “far right” and “neo-Nazi.”  American Thinker Breitbart

Editor’s note:  The dike has broken wide open that a cover-up has occurred in Sweden hiding the massive increase in sexual assaults by Muslim men in 2014 and 2015. The media, which previously aided the government in the cover-up, has undergone a shift in policy and will no longer hide the statistics.    

 

Mexican Nationals Returning Home Are Staying Home

Matamoros-–Fearing stiffer immigration enforcement in the coming months, about half of the Mexican nationals who had traveled through the city on their way home claim they will not be returning to the U.S., says Jesus De La Garza, mayor of Matamoros.  According to De La Garza, at least half of the travelers say they plan on not coming back to the U.S. and are planning to seek jobs in Mexico.  In preparation for increased traffic, the mayor has been meeting with Mexico’s Regional Security Team and U.S. law enforcement.

Most Persecuted Religious Group in the World – Christians

About 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith last year, one every six minutes.  70% were killed in tribal conflicts in Africa while 30% were murdered by terrorism or government persecution worldwide.  Fox News

Editor’s note: Christians are a third of the world’s population (2.4 billion). Two-thirds of them live in areas of war and violence.  Liberals have nothing to say to Christian conservatives concerning tolerance.

 

 

 

Dems Trying to Leave as Many Landmines As They Can

Fox News Channel’s Charles Krauthammer reacted to the investigation of the DOJ and FBI’s handling of the Clinton email case by saying on Thursday that “it looks as if the Democrats, on their way out the door, are trying to leave behind as many landmines as they can to at least cast doubts on the legitimacy of the Trump victory.”  Breitbart

Editor’s note:  The Clinton email case has been purposely made to look extremely complicated and full of doubt.  In truth, this case has been passed from office to office, on again off again, because no one wanted to prosecute one of their own, especially while she was running for president. Equal justice under the law?

Hard Left Promises Disruption at the Inauguration

 

Anarchists are calling for disruption and violence at the Trump inauguration on January 20th with the goal of shutting it down.  DisruptJ20 has posted on their website a manifesto that clearly shows they are planning widespread civil disobedience and possible illegal actions, calling on “all people of conscience” to shut down the event.

In response, Bikers For Trump has secured a location for their own demonstration in support of the president-elect as he takes office on January 20th. The biker’s permit is for 5,000 people, but they expect at least 10,000  bikers to show.  intellihub, WND, Top Right News

 

Editor’s note:  There will be protesters, but others will attempt to leave Washington, D.C. in total paralysis.  Motorcycle clubs often formed barriers between anti-Trump protesters and the candidate during the campaign.

Medical Care

 

Why does medical care have to cost what it does?

 

As a middle-class citizen, why is there a good chance I will go bankrupt if I have a major illness, even with insurance?

 

Why did I have to pay $75 for “hospital supplies” in the ER consisting of one alcohol wipe? 

 

Everyone talks about obtaining medical insurance, but almost no one wants to talk about health care cost. Does insurance contribute to that high cost?

 

Consider this:

The Los Angeles Times reported that a woman noticed that her insurance company brought down the cost of a CT scan from $6,707 to $2,336.  The medical facility told her that If she had paid cash and skipped the whole insurance thing, she would have paid $1,054.  The newspaper made another call to a medical center for prices for a CT scan.

The price was $4,423 or $2,400 with Blue Shield. The CT scan would have cost $250 if paid in cash!

A doctor said that a woman’s $782 blood work would have only cost $95 if paid in cash, but she was charged $415 by her insurance company.

 

The problem is not merely a lack of insurance for many people, but a system that has become cumbersome, ambiguous, bureaucratic, impersonal and, in many cases, unnecessarily paying a profit-making third party. The primary goal should be affordability, not insurance.  LA Times

You can blame much on a poor education system, gangs, a lack of jobs and an unresponsive government; but, a portion of the blame goes to the individuals who would not or could not find it within themselves to build  a better life.

Hate Factories – 12/3/16

A loyal reader forwarded a newsletter to a liberal family member and received a negative response.  The newsletter featured an article regarding our education system, both grade school and college, having become liberal indoctrination centers.

Editor’s note:  Besides being a manufactured sound bite, this person, like all liberal true believers, put his/her argument on a purely moral basis while being condescending…”I do not partake in fear mongering, hate speech propaganda.”  It is a favorite tactic to get the Conservative to back off and avoid dealing with the encounter.  They will rarely answer or step up to the challenge.  If they do, be ready for ‘moral superiority.’

IMMIGRATION FAILURES VS. AMERICANS by Michael Cutler

Editor’s Note: From our great friend and regular SUA contributor, Michael Cutler, retired Senior Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) whose career spanned some 30 years. He has testified before well over a dozen congressional hearings.

He hosts “The Michael Cutler Hour” on USA Talk Radio Fridays at 7 p.m. (EST) and is frequently interviewed by broadcast media on various aspects of immigration issues, especially the nexus to national security.

 

Immigration Failures vs. Americans

How law enforcement failures undermine our citizen’s civil rights.

by Michael Cutler

 

 

 

Immigration anarchists have repeatedly drawn false analogies between their efforts to block the enforcement of immigration laws and the heroic action of those whose hard-fought efforts for decades provided black Americans with civil rights, but at great cost.

These anarchists emulate Jimmy Carter, creator of the Orwellian term ‘Undocumented Immigrant’ by referring to advocates for fair and effective immigration law enforcement as being “Anti-Immigrant.”  This despicable tactic is now being used to falsely attack Senator Jeff Sessions, the nominee for Attorney General, accuse his support for such effective enforcement of our immigration laws as running contrary to civil rights and being against immigrants.

These anarchists refuse to concede what should be obvious, while aliens illegally present in the United States are entitled to human rights and due process, they are not entitled to broad civil rights protections.  It is an outrageous contradiction in concepts to claim that aliens whose mere presence represents a violation of law should be provided with opportunities equal to those provided to American citizens and lawful immigrants.

In reality, immigration anarchists are, themselves, responsible for undermining the civil rights of Americans, particularly American minorities who suffer the greatest harm because of the failures of our government to enforce the immigration laws.  Those immigration anarchists also are responsible for undermining the civil rights of lawful immigrants.

For the sake of clarity and to prevent any potential misunderstandings, illegal aliens, not unlike others, are entitled to human rights and are properly entitled to due process when accused of committing crimes.  There are two reasons why due process must be devoid of consideration as to the immigration status of the accused.  First of all, it is a matter of fairness and justice.

Creating a lower standard for convicting illegal aliens for committing crimes would undermine the judicial system.

Additionally, unscrupulous prosecutors who simply wanted a “quick kill” would be encouraged to seek the conviction of illegal aliens who did not actually commit the crime.  This is immoral and unjust.  Secondly, under such circumstances, law enforcement authorities would stop looking for the actual criminal who would therefore remain at large and continue to pose a threat.

Civil rights laws were initially enacted to address the wrongs visited upon black Americans beginning with slavery and then segregation.

Today those laws are focused on providing citizens, irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity, gender or sexual identity or orientation, with equal protection under our laws and equal opportunities, thereby enabling them to be full participants in the communities where they live and throughout our nation.

Sanctimonious and hypocritical mayors of “Sanctuary Cities” portray themselves as heroic figures, perhaps on par with the “Freedom Riders” who, decades ago, at great personal risk, fought to end racial discrimination and segregation in the South.

Make no mistake, those Freedom Riders were heroes who should be lauded and remembered for their morality, courage and achievements.

Mayors of Sanctuary Cities, however, are anything but heroes.  They are betrayers.  Betrayers of the Constitution, betrayers of their oaths of office, betrayers of national security and public safety and betrayers of their constituents.

Such rogue politicians act against the best interests of their constituents and those who reside in, or visit their cities by turning their jurisdictions into magnets for aliens who are illegally present in the United States.  Among those illegal aliens are those who have serious criminal histories, have outstanding arrest warrants in the United States or in other countries or may be international terrorists or supporters of terrorism.  These aliens may have entered the United States without inspection or entered through ports of entry but went on to otherwise violate our immigration laws that, it must be noted, are completely and utterly blind as to race, religion or ethnicity.

The ultimate “hate crime” involves acts of violence committed against members of a community because of factors such as race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation.  Transnational gangs often target their victims because of such factors.  Failures of immigration law enforcement have enabled such violent gangs to flourish across the United States.

Beyond undermining national security and public safety, Sanctuary Cities additionally attract massive numbers of illegal aliens who have no legal authority to work in the United States yet are able to secure illegal employment, thereby displacing American workers.

This includes American teenagers – often American minority teenagers, who find themselves unable to find a job, creating for them the conundrum of not being able to get a job without a resume but not being able to assemble a resume without first getting a job.

Furthermore, labor is a commodity.  Flooding the labor pool with foreign workers, suppresses the value of labor.  Consequently, even Americans and lawful immigrants who don’t lose their jobs to illegal aliens likely face wage suppression because of them.

It is more than mere coincidence that the division of the Civil Rights Commission that deals with discriminatory employment practices is referred to as the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission.

Employment, in point of fact, provides opportunities to those who are able to work.

those who are able to work.

Opportunities to be self-sufficient, opportunities to succeed and advance and prosper all revolve around the ability to be gainfully employed.

Blocking qualified workers from job opportunities deprives them essential and fundamental opportunities to be successful.

Politicians who comply with the demands of campaign contributors and others who exert pressure on them to flood America with cheap and compliant foreign labor to displace American workers and suppress wages.

The destruction of the middle class is not an “unintended consequence” but the goal of their duplicitous conduct.

A news report on how job losses create multiple stresses quoted Michael McKee, a psychologist at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic who articulated his concerns about how the possible loss of financial ability to support oneself and family my lead to a loss of self-respect and the respect of others.  Thus leading to the loss of identity, security and daily structure, ultimately leading to people who lose meaning and hope.

A study published a couple of years ago found that poverty stresses the brain so much that it’s like losing 13 IQ points.

Prior to the Second World War the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws was vested primarily within the Labor Department to make certain that Americans would not have to compete with foreign workers for jobs.  This is how America created the largest and most upwardly mobile middle class of all countries on this planet at the time, thus creating the “American Dream.”

Civil rights laws also enforced in conjunction with our immigration laws to make certain that employers treat all employees equally including aliens provided that the aliens in question are authorized by law to be employed in the United States.  Indeed, even where the employer sanctions provisions of the Immigration Reform and Control Act.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 ended segregation and under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, discriminatory employment practices were prohibited to insure, equal employment opportunities.  Over time these laws were amended to protect additional groups of protected workers and even include aliens who are authorized to work in the United States.

In fact, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has posted the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) on its website.  Among the provisions of IRCA was a massive amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens and the provision that, for the very first time, deemed the knowing employment of illegal aliens to be a violation of law.

The EEOC has a vested interest and, indeed, jurisdiction, in cases involving allegations of Employment Discrimination.

Not only does the EEOC have jurisdiction when Americans claim employment discrimination, but it also has jurisdiction if an allegation is made that an alien, authorized to work in the United States seeking employment, suffered discrimination during the hiring process by an overly zealous employer who went beyond the requirements of preparing the Form I-9 to verify the identity and eligibility of an alien applying for a job or if an alien, authorized to work in the United States, faced discriminatory policies by his/her employer.

However, all of the laws and regulations that have been promulgated to end workplace discrimination are undone by the veritable army of foreign workers who have displaced beleaguered American workers.

Think of how many politicians running for office promise to help “create jobs” and to “bring back jobs to America.”

Whether politicians are running for political office on the local, state or federal level.  Whether they seek to become a member of the city council, mayors or governors.  Even if they are candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate or even the Presidency of the United States, they all make that same  promise about jobs and “getting Americans back to work.”

Failures of the immigration system make those promises largely meaningless when American workers are displaced by aliens.

For open borders/immigration anarchists, failures of the immigration system are to be engineered and then celebrated.

In reality, those failures are devastating to America and Americans and undermine the letter and spirit of our civl rights laws.

If immigration anarchists want to point to those responsible for undermining civil rights, they should stand in front of a mirror and point at themselves.
