The Good News

Isaiah 54:13-17 The Message Bible

“Afflicted city, storm-battered, unpitied: I’m about to rebuild you with stones of turquoise, Lay your foundations with sapphires, construct your towers with rubies, Your gates with jewels, and all your walls with precious stones.
All your children will have God for their teacher— what a mentor for your children!
You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness, far from any trouble—nothing to fear! far from terror—it won’t even come close!
If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it.
I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill.
I also create the destroyer— but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged.
Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar.
This is what God’s servants can expect.
I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.”
God’s Decree.

Thank You Heavenly Father, we receive Your Holy Word with praise and thanksgiving in the Mighty Name of Your Beloved Son Christ Jesus, Amen and amen!

They Just Attempted a Coup. And Now They Want Americans Disarmed?

If They'll Do That While Americans Are Still Armed, What Would They Do If They Could Disarm Everyone?

They wouldn't even bother to hide it anymore.

Islamo-Communist John Brennan: "Congress needs to act now to prevent access to semiautomatic weapons that kill innocents."

Islamo-Communist Barack Obama: "We've been waiting for you And we've got your backs."

Also your tour buses, your media consultants and your recording contracts. It is unseemly how the Soros Democrats already had the tour buses chartered while Cruz was still reloading. This is a fully-funded Democrat Party Op, manipulating schoolchildren to use as political human shields.

Hey--you know who else used kids for political props to take away other people's rights?
NR: "The government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for “public safety.” The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group. In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”"
In Broward, Obama's PROMISE Program made sure student criminals weren't punished.
The FBI ignored repeated explicit warnings.
The State of Florida's therapists noted the crazy kid wanted a weapon and went to lunch instead of taking action.
The Sheriffs Dept. hid Cruz's crimes at school, hid his crimes at home and then hid from him in the parking lot.
The School Board approved the PROMISE Sanctuary Criminal Program and excused and even hid student crimes.
The Principal, too.

From the Oval Office to the Principal's Office, every single level of government failed. Had any single one of these agencies done their job, this could have been prevented.

And the answer is to punish law-abiding citizens by taking away the Bill of Rights?

Hogg: “When your old-ass parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage,’ and you’re just like, ‘Give me the fucking phone and let me handle it.’ Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government; our parents don’t know how to use a fucking democracy, so we have to. It just makes me think what sick fuckers out there want to continue to sell more guns, murder more children, and honestly just get reelected. What type of shitty person does that? They could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action, because they all still see these dollar signs.”

He seems nice.

When George Soros was Hogg's age, he was hunting down disarmed Jews in Budapest for the Nazis.
And now he's funding Hogg. Some things never change.

Does that say "Mein Fuhrer"?
The Ayatollah of Iran and the Communist Dictators of China agree completely with Democrats: Americans should be disarmed!

The Ayatollah of Iran: @khamenei_ir
"No one dares apply the clear solution to the promotion of guns and homicide in America. What's the solution? It's to make guns illegal."
Her name was Neda. Khamenei had her shot. Her crime? She wanted her own Bill of Rights, too. 
The Chinese Communist dictatorship in their Government-Controlled Newspaper:

“Gun ownership in China is strictly regulated, which helps reduce gun-related crimes and deaths. The U.S. should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights. The right of life is the most fundamental (of) human rights. The right to bear arms cannot overpower the individual’s right to live.”

They still haven't found his body. Or even his name.
By the way, President Xi just won his vote to be China's President-for-Life. It was unanimous--just like the vote count at FBI headquarters!

Self-defense is a God-given right.

But the Second Amendment to the Constitution is about more than personal safety. It is also a bulwark against government tyranny.

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." --Thomas Jefferson.

"The Constitution [shall] be never construed to authorize Congress to ...prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms."--Samuel Adams

"The Constitution preserves "the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." — James Madison, The Federalist, No. 46

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed..."--Noah Webster

"Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of arms."--Thom Paine

With his long gun, Condoleeza Rice's father was able to fend off the marauding Klansmen supported by the local Democrat political establishment.

And for the first time in American history, the Deep State Obama/Clinton Junta just tried to subvert the peaceful transfer of power, first established by George Washington himself.

The threat of tyranny is not theoretical. It has never been more real.

Nino Scalia at work in 'Heller':

"In sum, we hold that the District’s ban on handgun possession in the home violates the Second Amendment, as does its prohibition against rendering any lawful firearm in the home operable for the purpose of immediate self-defense. Assuming that Heller is not disqualified from the exercise of Second Amendment rights, the District must permit him to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home.

We are aware of the problem of handgun violence in this country, and we take seriously the concerns raised by the many amici who believe that prohibition of handgun ownership is a solution. The Constitution leaves the District of Columbia a variety of tools for combating that problem, including some measures regulating handguns. But tthe enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. These include the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home. Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct."
Not Just No. Hell, No.

The Swamp Drains Us

"The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, & government to gain ground."--Thomas Jefferson To Edward Carrington, 1788

 "What is this oozing behemoth, this fibrous tumor, this monster of power and expense hatched from the simple human desire for civic order? How did an allegedly free people spawn a vast, rampant cuttlefish of dominion with its tentacles in every orifice of the body politic?"
--"Parliament of Whores", P.J. O'Rourke, before the Early Onset Trump Derangement Syndrome took him so tragically from us 

The phrase "Parliament of Whores" is of course grossly unfair. To whores.

John Hindraker: You Can Vote For Conservatism, But You Can’t Get It

"I first made that observation–you can vote for conservatism, but you can’t get it–quite a few years ago. Sadly, it remains true, as exemplified by the $1.3 trillion spending monstrosity that President Trump signed today. ...

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are gleeful, as they should be. They are in an enviable position: they don’t have to win elections in order to govern.

You can read the roll call vote here. [Democrat] leadership obviously made sure there were plenty of Yes votes to pass the bill. But the Senate Democrats who are seeking national office all voted No: Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Why? I’m not sure...maybe they just don’t want to vote for any bill that Donald Trump signs. In any event, they are all staking out a position to the left of an outcome that has Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer popping champagne corks. ...

But back to the original point: all Republicans, and some Democrats, run on a platform of smaller government, less spending and lower taxes. Voters, more often than not, elect such candidates. But the forces pressing for more and more spending, toward ends that are increasingly removed from the proper purposes of government, are inexorable. Barack Obama said that elections matter. He was only half right: you can vote for conservatism, but you can’t get it.".......

Daily Caller: BROKEN PROMISE: Trump, GOP Congress Give Planned Parenthood $500 Million In Taxpayer Funds

"Trump, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders promised their voters for years that they would defund Planned Parenthood if given the chance to govern. Now, with Republican majorities in the House and Senate and a Republican in the White House, the nation’s number one killer of unborn children will continue receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding.".......
Just like when he got talked into hiring Rosenstein and others, President Trump got rolled yesterday.

There is no nice way to put it. He should have been involved sooner, put his foot down and gone with his instincts.

In fairness, though, we keep sending RINOs to Congress for him to work with. Not to mention traitorous anti-American Democrats who would gladly hobble the military to ensure victories for our enemies. And where Obama got a Nobel Prize for nothing when he was elected, President Trump got a Special Counsel for nothing.

Everywhere the president turns is another steaming turd, crapped out on the national living room carpet by Barack Obama, the Clintons and their RINO pals. The Professional Class have driven this country into a ditch, yet they all think they're champion NASCAR drivers.

So I have some sympathy. It's not unlike grudgingly certifying the Iran Deal, which he also had to do. The president promised to never again sign one of these budgetary betrayals:

“There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill. There are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill, but we were in a sense forced if we want to build our military. I said to Congress 'I will never sign another bill like this again'.”

Congress' main function is to write a real budget and they have failed and failed for years.

The president can't fight every battle at once and he can't do it alone. It's time to primary these overpaid time-servers.

While disappointed, I'm not about to give up on the only fighter we've had since 1989.
"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? ...

We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.

It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the Federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the Federal Government and those reserved to the States or to the people. All of us need to be reminded that the Federal Government did not create the States; the States created the Federal Government. ... It is no coincidence that our present troubles parallel and are proportionate to the intervention and intrusion in our lives that result from unnecessary and excessive growth of government."--Jan. 20, 1981

UPDATE: In addition to military pay raises, here's another bright spot:
"The passage of the Taylor Force Act is a silver lining — and a milestone in foreign policy that could save taxpayers money. The Taylor Force Act will end U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) as long as it pays stipends to Palestinian terrorists — either those in Israeli prisons, or the families of those who are deceased. Named for a U.S. Army veteran who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist while he was visiting Israel in 2016, the law was championed by Republicans.".......
UPDATE: I thought the President got rolled. I was wrong.

The Facebook Phony: Face It, Kidz; He Sold Your Info to Cambridge Analytica Just Like He Sold It to Obama


Free Beacon: "What would the media say?
Naturally the team behind it would be the "geek squad." The campaign would be celebrated for its "Big Data Brains." The media would applaud these "digital wizards" at the "forefront of campaign technology."
That, of course, was the praise heaped on Barack Obama's 2012 reelection campaign. It wasn't nefarious for Obama to have the head of Google recruiting talent, choosing technology, and coaching Obama's campaign manager. Nor for Facebook to be on their "side."
But when a consulting firm—not even the Trump campaign itself—does essentially the same thing, and a Republican wins the White House? "Launch a criminal investigation!" "Mark Zuckerberg must testify!" "Regulate social media!" "Delete your Facebook!"
While the Obama campaign had a database that was a "powerful tool," Cambridge Analytica was "harvesting" your personal info.
"Target sharing" became "data abuse."
Data went from being "crunched" to "stolen."
Facebook went from the "ideal way" to reach voters to being "weaponized."
Genius became "evil genius."
What changed? It's almost as if the media think everything Democrats do is virtuous, and everything Republicans do is nefarious.
The Obama 2012 campaign had a "massive computer database containing personal data on millions of American voters." They used "sophisticated computer programs" to mine data from social media.
"Anybody who contacted the campaign through Facebook had their friends and ‘likes' downloaded," NBC News explained, in nonjudgmental terms. "If they contacted the campaign website through mobile apps, cellphone numbers and address books were downloaded. Computer ‘cookies' captured Web browsing and online spending habits."
In fact, Obama's "geek squad" had been using cookies to track its own supporters’ online behavior since 2008.".......

David Harsanyi: "The theory goes something like this: Facebook obtained information on users who took a personality quiz with their online friends. Another outlet, Cambridge Analytica, harvested that information to brainwash a bunch of rubes, and then yada, yada, yada … Russia! Senators are now demanding executives come forth and answer questions. Investigations must be open. Democracy is under threat.
Eitan Hersh @eitanhersh: “Let’s start with fb data, use it to predict personalities, then use that to predict political views, and then use that to figure out messages and messengers and just the right time of a campaign to make a lasting persuasive impact” ...sounds like a failed PhD prospectus to me."
Yet, on the most obvious level, Cambridge Analytica is another story about double standards. The only consistent position the Left seems to take these days is that the mechanisms they use to keep power automatically transform into something nefarious and un-democratic when the opposition use them.
By constantly using the word “breach,” for instance, reporters are trying to insinuate that someone stole voter data that typically is off limits. Cambridge Analytica was allowed to pull that profile data. Facebook only changed its policy in early 2015. But then Trump campaign dropped Cambridge Analytica before the general election for the RNC data, reportedly never using the any of the “psychographic” information. According to CBS News, in Sept. 2016, it had “tested the RNC data, and it proved to be vastly more accurate.”
Even if they hadn’t, however, their efforts would have been akin to those being heralded as revolutionary when it served the interests of Democrats. Facebook, in fact, allowed the Obama campaign to data harvest in the same way that is now generating headlines and handwringing.  Do you remember any outrage and trepidation over privacy and manipulation of your thoughts in 2012? If anything, there should be outrage that a massive social media company allowed one party to do things that it forbade another.".......

The Obama Campaign: "Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing. They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side."

Fakebook--not to mention Twitter, YouTube and Google--can spy, lie, defund, de-platform, shadow-ban and censor conservatives all day long without a peep from Official Washington.

But if Trump's name is somehow connected, all of the sudden it's BEDLAM!CHAOS!DICTATORSHIP!BIG BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!

Good. If that's what it takes to haul this smarmy crowd of internet rent-seekers, backstairs crawlers and speech-controllers before the klieg lights, I'm all for it.

Zuckerberg says he's open to regulation. That's because he sees how the regulated insurance companies are lining up before Congress for a $30 billion payout even as we speak.

While he's at it, maybe Zuckerberg can explain why he's been dumping stock like an Equifax executive. Haul all of these Internet Utility companies up there and let them defend their corrupt and biased business models.

As President Teddy Roosevelt tweeted in 1901: "There is a widespread conviction in the minds of the American people that the great corporations known as trusts are in certain of their features and tendencies hurtful to the general welfare. ...Corporations engaged in interstate commerce should be regulated if they are found to exercise a license working to the public injury. It should be as much the aim of those who seek for social- betterment to rid the business world of crimes of cunning as to rid the entire body politic of crimes of violence. Great corporations exist only because they are created and safeguarded by our institutions; and it is therefore our right and our duty to see that they work in harmony with these institutions."
"So you think you're gonna de-platform me, kid? I don't think so, sonny boy."

Of Course $tanding Up to China, Inc. Feels Weird--It's Never Been Done Before!

Thanks, Mr. President!

Sundance: Peter Schweizer Explains How China Purchased U.S. Congress as a Trade Strategy…

"A timely book by Peter Schweizer, “Secret Empires”, explains how Chinese companies purchased U.S. politicians to gain trade advantages.   When you understand this process, you better understand why those same politicians today are against the Trump trade policy that is antithetical to their purchased interests.

Allow me to re-emphasize:

All opposition to President Trump stems from the underlying financial and economic policy. All opposition is about money!

When you ask the “why” question five times you end up discovering the financial motive for all opposition. It doesn’t matter who the group is; the opposition is ultimately about money. There are trillions at stake.

So ask yourself, friends and family this very important question:

If prior U.S. trade policies resulted in the export and redistribution of U.S. wealth… What happens when you reverse the process?

In the answer to that question you discover the opposition to U.S. President Trump.
When Main Street economic principles are applied Wall Street will initially lose. There’s no way for this not to happen. Most of Wall Street is built on the Multinational platform of economic globalism. Weaken the grip of the multinational corporations and financial interests on the U.S. economy and Wall Street will drop… this is not difficult to predict. This is also necessary.".......

The price of olive oil probably went up too when they started arresting the Corleone family--too bad.

You can't blame China for purchasing what was for sale. Willing sellers, willing buyer.

Evidently, the only true free market is in our legislators. And their kids.

"You Are Being Replaced" by Martin Sellner

Mark Steyn:

"During his confinement at Heathrow, Martin Sellner wrote the speech the UK "Border Force" would not permit him to give. It was read by Tommy Robinson at Speakers' Corner in London last Sunday. I can see nothing in it that in a free country should attract the attention of the authorities - although I appreciate that its message is unsettling: the preferred tone in the respectable prints is that of Harry Mount here, marveling that the world of his witty, civilized, North London dinner parties can co-exist with the world of Somali stabbings a mere seventy yards away, and that these two worlds somehow never intersect. Which is not something a white English working-class schoolgirl in Telford would be quite so breezy about.
Herr Sellner's speech is plainer-spoken, yet temperate and sobering. It is also withering about the state of free speech in a land that did much to spread the concept around the globe and is now in the forefront of destroying it. As evidence of that, a fourth person was deported from Britain merely because a copy of this speech was found in his luggage. So I reproduce it here because I think our UK readers should be interested to hear what an allegedly conservative government will not allow them to hear. Perhaps one day it will be as famous as, say, Martin Luther King's letter from Birmingham Jail. Or perhaps the enablers and appeasers of Islamic supremacism will do such a thorough job that no trace of Herr Sellner's existence will remain in Austria or anywhere else in Europe:

Dear Friends, dear Britons, dear lovers of free speech.

I assume you all are lovers of free speech because you have come to Speakers' Corner.
You might not understand all the fuss happening today around this speech. Honestly, I don't understand it either.
My name is Martin Sellner. I am an Austrian patriot, and at the moment, I'm sitting in a detention cell in Colnbrook Bypass near Heathrow. My smartphone was taken and my girlfriend Brittany was separated from me. I currently don't know where she is. We will be deported on Sunday.
Five minutes ago, they unlocked our cells and my fellow inmates are gathering in the prison wing. They are mostly illegals and eastern European criminals.
What brought me into this situation? What was my crime?
My crime was that I wanted to be here with you, to speak at Speakers' Corner.
But let's start with the beginning. I was invited by UKIP to present my movement at an event last Autumn. I represent Generation Identity — a patriotic European youth movement that is raising awareness about mass immigration and Islamisation.
Far-left people call us right-wing, people who want to shut free speech down call us "fascist," and folks who hate their own culture call us "racist."
In reality, we are just a group of young patriots fed up with the system, the mainstream press and lying politicians. We use peaceful activism to make our voices heard, and contrary to our friends on the radical left, who are probably swarming you right now, we never wear masks.
From Paris to Rome, from Vienna to London, we fight peacefully but without compromise for our freedom, our homelands, and our identity!
This is what I wanted to speak about in Autumn. But the conference was cancelled due to threats from the radical left. The venue would not take the risk. So they rescheduled it for March, this time keeping the venue secret — but again the terror of the left prevailed, and the venue dropped out.
But this time I did not want to let them win! It was about principles! (Also, our flights were already booked.)
My last refuge was Speakers' Corner. I remembered my mother telling me about that special place when I was a child. It seemed almost magical to me. A place where everyone, without exception, could just stand on a box and start to speak to those who wanted to listen. I have always loved this tradition of Speakers' Corner, which seemed very British to me.
But I came only to see that this tradition — the tradition of freedom of speech in the United Kingdom — is dead.
Your Country is blocking you from challenging ideas from the outside. This is a disgrace to our democracy!
I should be speaking in a neat, warm conference room right now, and you should be sitting in comfortable chairs. Instead, I'm in my cell and you are on the street in a standoff with the enemies of freedom of speech.
And this is very telling! Today there is a war going on for our freedom of speech. This war is being fought on the streets, by you!
Every man and woman showing her face today, standing shoulder to shoulder, is standing up against a new totalitarianism that has been growing for far too long. You can be proud of yourself. You might not even agree with me on every point — you are simply giving a statement that I should have the right to speak my mind freely.
I would love to be among you now. They prevented me from it. They locked up the speaker, but I know that the speech will find a way through the iron bars. It will find a way to you and you are going to hear what you government so desperately wants to protect you from.
Those words which they consider more harmful to you than rape gangs or terrorists who are let into your country again and again.
I'm going to tell you something nobody has told you before. It's the biggest, most obvious secret of our media our politicians and our powerholders: People of Britain, you are being replaced.
There has always been immigration in your history. People coming in, assimilating.
But what's happening today is different: You are being replaced by massive Muslim immigration.
You see it everywhere: in London, in Manchester, but also already in the little countryside towns. A big replacement is going on.
And let me tell you: your politicians have no plan, no vision and no idea how to deal with the problems that come along. Problems like you have seen in Telford, Rotherham, and on Westminster Bridge.
All across Europe, there is a shadow hanging over our heads. The French are whispering about in the Metro, the Germans murmuring about it when they feel unwatched, Italians look left and right, and if nobody is listening they tell you: "I don't feel at home anymore in my street. We are becoming foreigners in our own country."
And again and again I hear: "We are not allowed to talk about it."
And that's the bizarre drama of the "Strange death of Europe." We are being replaced, conquered by radical Islam, and we are not allowed to talk about it!
Dear Britons, defenders of free speech. Out of my cell in Colnbrook, I want to ask you something. Be honest and raise your hands.
Who among of you has ever been in the following situation: You grab a beer after work, or you are visiting your girlfriend's parents for the first time, or you meet other children's parents at school — and suddenly the conversation moves to politics: radical Islam, immigration.
Who of you in this very moment was faced with the decision between speaking his mind and facing problems, or complying and staying silent?
Raise your hands and be honest.
I will not be able to see the results, but every single hand is too much. This amount of fear should not exist in a society. Speech that has social costs and severe consequences is no longer free. It has a price — and our Government and the Antifa are working everyday to raise that price.
No freedom of speech means no democracy. In front of our very eyes this country is becoming a tyranny, shutting all debates about immigration down, until demographics solves the issue by replacement. People of the UK. I might be in a cell right now, but you all are in a cell. It's the prison of fear and silence your government and the PC tyranny has locked you in since the days of your childhood.
I ask you, I command you, break free!
Patriots of the UK: come out of the closet. Make your dissent visible by visible acts of resistance that inspire others. I know for certain that millions in the UK think like me. Those millions should be on the street now.
We need a coming out of the silent majority, or Britain is lost. We need a free, open and honest debate about immigration, Islam and demographics, so we can sort these problems out together.
And I know that the force is still in you. With your Brexit vote you stunned the world! The will and the life of the British nation is not broken.
Initially, I asked if freedom of speech is dead in the UK. You, every one of you who came today, is a living sign that the tradition of the UK is not dead! You are the livley tradition of your nation, saving its face before history.
People of the UK — remember who you are! Remember your glorious past, you are sons and daughters of knights, kings, explorers, philosophers and artists. Who is the sovereign in this country?
Is it big money?
The mainstream media?
The politicians?
It's you — the people. You, the silent and invisible majority who said NO during Brexit. You can say NO again — no to Islamisation, no to mass immigration, and no to the great replacement.
And YES to your identity — yes to your security, yes to your heritage and the future for your children.
And all this is impossible without to freedom of speech.
I know, if these words will find their way to the UK and even to Speakers' Corner, it will be victory for our cause.
If they did, and if you are hearing them now, I tell you: go further on that winning street. Don't be afraid because we have an ally that is unbeatable: Truth.
The battle, our battle for freedom of speech, has just begun, and Speakers' Corner will become a symbolic place in that struggle.
When you go home know I want you to bring the spirit of Speakers' Corner with you.
Every single person who raised his hand because he could relate to this moment of fear, when he did not dare to speak his mind.
Promise me: Next time I will overcome my inner fear. Next time I will speak up!".......

Patriot Games: Spies Who Don't Like Us

And We Aren't Too Fonda Them, Either!

“You are consigned to the dustbin of history!”--Leon Trotsky, October 1917. Also John Brennan, March 2018!

"There is a threat posed to human freedom by the enormous power of the modern state. History teaches the dangers of government that overreaches -- political control taking precedence over free economic growth, secret police, mindless bureaucracy, all combining to stifle individual excellence and personal freedom. ...What I am describing now is a plan and a hope for the long term -- the march of freedom and democracy which will leave Marxism-Leninism on the ash-heap of history as it has left other tyrannies which stifle the freedom and muzzle the self-expression of the people."--Pres. Ronald Reagan, Westminster Speech, 1982 

Conservative Treehouse:

"As disturbing as these unhinged expressions might be, there are benefits…. their alliance gets smaller.

John Brennan was a career CIA official who voted for the communist party in 1980.  He was also a 2008 Obama adviser when he was caught hacking into State Department passport records.  After the 2012 Benghazi attack, Brennan was moved into the position of CIA Director to cover and tamp-down any issues that might arise (he made everyone sign NDA’s).  As CIA Director Brennan was also caught hacking Senate computers to monitor the Senate Intelligence Committee. He apologized.".......

Brennan's rabid rantings only prove how desperate the Islamo-Communists were to rig the election by wiretapping and framing Donald Trump.

It's an admission of guilt, even as Brennan wraps his subversion in the flag.

"Patriotism having become one of our topicks, Johnson suddenly uttered, in a strong determined tone, an apophthegm, at which many will start: 'Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.' But let it be considered, that he did not mean a real and generous love of our country, but that pretended patriotism which so many, in all ages and countries, have made a cloak for self-interest."--Boswell's Life of Johnson.

"Some claim a place in the list of patriots, by an acrimonious and unremitting opposition to the court. This mark is by no means infallible. Patriotism is not necessarily included in rebellion. A man may hate his king, yet not love his country."

"A man sometimes starts up a patriot, only by disseminating discontent, and propagating reports of secret influence, of dangerous counsels, of violated rights, and encroaching usurpation. This practice is no certain note of patriotism. To instigate the populace with rage beyond the provocation, is to suspend publick happiness, if not to destroy it."

"The patriotism, therefore, may be justly doubted of him, who professes to be disturbed by incredibilities."--Samuel Johnson, 'The Patriot'

When Brennan cast his vote for the Kremlin-backed American Communist Party, it was not some college kid protesting 'Nam. Viet Nam was long over. He was protesting that Jimmy Carter was not soft enough on dictators, not anti-Semitic enough, just not liberal enough--and he was terrified Ronald Reagan would defeat International Socialism. He wanted a full-Islamo-Communist candidate like himself. Eventually, he got one, too.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The CEO of a company whose employee is accused of improperly looking at the passport files of presidential candidates is a consultant to the Barack Obama campaign, a source said Saturday. Analysis Corp. President John Brennan advises Barack Obama, a source tells CNN. John O. Brennan, president and CEO of the Analysis Corp., advises the Illinois Democrat on foreign policy and intelligence issues, the source said. On Friday, the department revealed that Obama's passport file was improperly accessed three times this year, and the security of passport files of the two other major presidential candidates -- Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican John McCain -- had also been breached. ".......

Imagine if President Trump's campaign had hacked into the State Dept. files for dirt on other candidates. Or had his CIA chief hack into the Senate's computers to monitor the views of senators. He would have already been impeached.

Brennan voted for a Soviet-backed party. He criminally hacked the State Department to win an election. He spied on senators and journalists. And he just tried to facilitate a coup on the voters of America.

Yet Brennan gives us foam-flecked lectures about Americanism while his gun moll Samantha "The Unmasker" Powers issues threats. Amazing.

Crooked Cops. Crooked Prosecutors. Crooked Candidate. Crooked Spies. Crooked Judges. Crooked Bureaucrats.

All working for the Crooked President.
The Islammunist Twins--
They may patriots, but not for this country.

“I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages even now are being written. I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And because it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow men.”

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action: Even the Name Is a Lie

Neither Joint, Nor Comprehensive, Nor a Plan Nor Action

But first, from the Archives, Nov. 2016:

What Do the Cast of "Hamilton" and the Audience of "Hamilton" All Have in Common?

A: They are all Americans.

And as such, they are not permitted to know all the secret side deals of Obama's One-Man Treaty with the Mullahs of Iran.

The Mullahs know. The U.N. Bureaucrats know. But Americans are not permitted to know.

Obama trusts the Mullahs. He trusts the UN. But he doesn't trust you.

Think about that; Obama finds the World's Number One State Sponsor of Terrorism more trustworthy than you.

But Alexander Hamilton doesn't trust him:

"It would be utterly unsafe and improper to entrust Treaty power to an elective magistrate of four years' duration. An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents. The history of human conduct does not warrant that exalted opinion of human virtue which would make it wise in a nation to commit interests of so delicate and momentous a kind, as those which concern its intercourse with the rest of the world, to the sole disposal of a President of the United States."--Alexander Hamilton arguing for the Constitution to his fellow citizens in the newspapers, the internet of his day, in Federalist #75


...and the tickets are free!
(Also from the Archives, Jan. 2017):

America's Word Was Never Given, Gen. Mattis

A Dishonorable Deal

Gen. Mattis on the Iran Deal:

“I think it is an imperfect arms control agreement — it's not a friendship treaty. But when America gives her word, we have to live up to it and work with our allies.”

I agree completely.

But America never gave her word.

Barack Hussein Obama illegitimately gave his word, not America. In fact, America was specifically prevented from giving her word.

America "gives her word" on treaties through the Senate's Advise and Consent power. The Constitution require senators, two from each state, to agree by a two-thirds vote for the specific purpose that our word as a nation is broad-based, authentically given as a nation. Not on the whim of single tin-pot basketball bracketeer.

Obama subverted that authentic national consent by calling this Treaty an "Executive Agreement". It is, in fact, a One-Man Diktat, a Dear Leader-style subversion of the Constitution never before seen in this Republic.

Furthermore, Obama conspired with Iran, Russia and other foreign entities to lie to the American people about the terms of this Pre-Emptive and Unconditional Surrender--and the lying is still underway to this very moment.

And if I'm not mistaken, it is an "Executive Agreement" not even signed by Iran's executive, essentially making it a deal Obama cut with Obama. Perfect.

And then handed to his Ayatollah as a gift.

There was not even simple majority support in the Senate for this madness, let alone the super-majority support envisioned by the Framers. This is why we take an oath to defend the Constitution.

America is not obligated because America never consented.

In fact, America was prevented from giving her word...until she finally got to speak on Election Day.

That election result is America's word on the subject, and that is what should be honored. .......

The so-called "Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action" is not about "action", but paralysis, meant to paralyze the West until Iran gets nukes.

It is "comprehensive" only in ensuring that Iran has everything it needs to achieve that goal.

And the "Joiners" are the UN, the European Union, the Mullahs, the Iranian parliament, a rogue president and his minority rump party--all of whom Americans never consented to have represent them in a Treaty.

And calling a Treaty an "Executive Agreement" is like calling a bank robbery "an unauthorized overdraft".

Of course, Obama front-loaded the Deal to box in America, not Iran. He gave Iran all the carrots and America all the sticks.

Spiritually, this was a act of submission by hadji Obama to his Ayatollah, signifying a Pre-Emptive Surrender of America to Islam, complete with the payment of a massive Jizya Tax.

And like Hitler's Nuremberg Laws, it was meant to be a dagger to the heart of the Jewish people.

That's how we got here. So now what?

Gen. Votel: "From my perspective, the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] addresses one of the principal threats that we deal with from Iran. So, if the JCPOA goes away, then we will have to have another way to deal with the nuclear weapons program."

That's just it. It does not address the threat. The Iranians pretend to comply and we pretend they are complying. Pretending is the opposite of dealing with it.

They are allowed to self-inspect. What little verification there might exist is done by others who do not have our security as their primary motive.

What will we say to the North Koreans when they say "We'll take the same deal you gave the Iranians!", General?

Amb. John Bolton has a plan, laid out here

"The reasons Ronald Reagan named Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism in 1984 remain fully applicable today. ...This effort should be the Administration’s highest diplomatic priority, commanding all necessary time, attention, and resources. We can no longer wait to eliminate the threat posed by Iran. The Administration’s justification of its decision will demonstrate to the world that we understand the threat to our civilization; we must act and encourage others to meet their responsibilities as well."

President Trump has a plan, too:

"I have been very clear about my opinion of that deal. It gave Iran far too much in exchange for far too little. The enormous financial windfall the Iranian regime received because of the deal—access to more than $100 billion, including $1.8 billion in cash—has not been used to better the lives of the Iranian people. Instead, it has served as a slush fund for weapons, terror, and oppression, and to further line the pockets of corrupt regime leaders. The Iranian people know this, which is one reason why so many have taken to the streets to express their outrage.
Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.
I am open to working with Congress on bipartisan legislation regarding Iran. But any bill I sign must include four critical components.
First, it must demand that Iran allow immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors.
Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon.
Third, unlike the nuclear deal, these provisions must have no expiration date. My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon—not just for ten years, but forever.
If Iran does not comply with any of these provisions, American nuclear sanctions would automatically resume.
Fourth, the legislation must explicitly state in United States law—for the first time—that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable, and that Iran’s development and testing of missiles should be subject to severe sanctions. ...
No one should doubt my word. I said I would not certify the nuclear deal—and I did not. I will also follow through on this pledge. I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression, and supporting the Iranian people. If other nations fail to act during this time, I will terminate our deal with Iran. Those who, for whatever reason, choose not to work with us will be siding with the Iranian regime’s nuclear ambitions, and against the people of Iran and the peaceful nations of the world."

And No More One-Man Treaties.

Sec. Hamilton: "After all, Sir, we must submit to this idea, that the true principle of a republic is, that the people should choose whom they please to govern them, Tarmac Meetings be damned! Say--what is a tarmac, anyway?"
"The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE. The streams of national power ought to flow from that pure, original fountain of all legitimate authority."

Treaty Power is Your Power!

UPDATE: Catherine Herridge outs the Deep Staters latest talking point: "How will North Korea take our word seriously if we withdraw from the Iran Deal?" But that's exactly backwards; they won't take us seriously if we don't.

The Good News

2 Timothy 3:14-17 The Message Bible

14-17 But don’t let it faze you. Stick with what you learned and believed, sure of the integrity of your teachers—why, you took in the sacred Scriptures with your mother’s milk! There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. 

Thank You Heavenly Father for Your Son Christ Jesus. Thank You for Your Abundance of Grace and Your Gift of Righteousness. And Thank You Father for Your Holy Word. In Jesus' Name we pray, Amen and amen!


Blink 1600

Pennsylvania Avenue

Canadian Encyclopedia: "Despite Canada’s formidable reserves of iron ore, the steel industry in recent decades has shrunk significantly as industrial markets have become increasingly globalized. Today, every remaining steel mill in the country is owned by foreign investors and Canada is a net importer of the manufactured product."

"Canadian" steel is Chinese steel. As is "Mexican" aluminum.

Other than giving them the names of our Chinese spies and letting them have all our government personnel files --which Obama already did--there are few things China would like more than to eradicate our metal industries.

The president is absolutely right on moral, economic  and national security grounds.

The Soviets knew Reagan was a serious guy when he fired the air traffic controllers, even though they were one of the few unions that supported him.

Trump just faced down Russian in Syria and Chinese steel-dumpers in D.C., despite the best efforts of China's rented Uni-Party cheerleaders.

And now, thanks to the president, China has just reeled in Junior Phat.

Thomas Lifson: "There are three reasons why this is a vindication of Trump's policy of ratcheting up sanctions and military pressure, up to and including interdiction of shipping into North Korean harbors.
  1. Kim is the one making the request, and he is doing so with some urgency.  As anyone who understands the dynamics of negotiation understands, this places Kim in the position of supplicant.  The current situation is unacceptable to him, which means he needs something – almost certainly relaxation of the sanctions that are crippling North Korea (unlike previous sanctions that they were able to work around with the help of China, which evidently has followed through in pledges negotiated by Trump to cut off North Korea from such help).
  2. North Korea has made a concession before the talks: halting missile launches and nuclear tests.
  3. North Korea has dropped is usual demand that the U.S. and South Korea halt their scheduled joint military exercises as a condition for talking.  Those exercises were postponed in honor of the recent Winter Olympics but will resume.  The exercises not only sharpen the ability of the two nations' militaries to work together, but also mass a considerable force within striking distance of North Korea, which is perceived as a threat, carrying the possibility of a sneak attack.
President Trump is the first occupant of the Oval Office to apply the famous definition of insanity attributed to Einstein – that it is "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" – to North Korea's drive to become a nuclear power.  The bipartisan political establishment has absolutely failed to restrain North Korea from developing a nuclear arsenal and the means to deliver it to the United States, and now, as that country on the brink of realizing its dream, President Trump has tried something different.  And he has shown results.".......


"No. no, no! It was supposed to be me! I am your leader! Me! Me! Meeeeeee!"

It's been so long since we had a president fight for us like this, we almost forgot how to talk about it.

But they remember.

Now We Find Out If We Are Still a Nation of Laws or an Outlaw State

This is bigger than President Trump or the Obama/Clinton Crime Syndicate.
Someday they will be gone from the scene and this nation will still need a national law enforcement and national security apparatus that is not a corrupt criminal arm of the Democrat Communist Party.
If we cannot hold these seditionists accountable, all bets are off.
We will see.
“Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte, and we are going to consider seriously their recommendations. I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us; and we’re conducting that investigation.".......
It looks like "Sleepy" was Woke after all.

Killing Ireland: The Be-Quiet Man and the Unobserved Proprieties

"Ah, yes... I knew your people, Sean. Your grandfather; he died in Australia, in a penal colony. And your father, he was a good man too."--Father Peter Lonergan, "The Quiet Man", 1952

"No patty-fingers, if you please. The proprieties at all times. Hold on to your hats. And hijabs."
 A 66 year-old American movie set in Ireland has little to do with the realities of Ireland today.

But this does:

"Unveiled by the government last week with a commitment to spend €116 billion, the document outlines plans to boost the Irish nation’s 4.7 million population by another million using mass migration.
The government’s strategic communications unit paid for sponsored “news pieces” to appear in national and regional newspapers promoting Ireland 2040, which “could not include negative or critical content”, The Times reported on Friday.
Project Ireland 2040 has been slammed on social media as a “pyramid scheme” to enrich investors by adding consumers at taxpayers’ expense, and as a globalist programme to “replace” the native population.
Brian Murphy, a councillor for the ruling Fine Gael party in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, used a series of Twitter posts to complain Ireland’s armed forces “should not be being forced to act as a ferry service for smugglers and illegal economic migrants in the Meditteranean”.
He also lamented that “Future generations of Europeans will inherit countries more divided, more dangerous and packed full of terrorists. They have been betrayed.”

Cllr Murphy also alleged that Shariah law was now operating in parts of Ireland, but that “most of the political class either do not know or do not care.”.......

The Councillor was then threatened by the $oros-owned Party "leaders" for Speaking Truth to Power. As it turns out, there's a lot of money in the exciting field of Cultural-Assisted Suicide.

In Ireland, they evidently have to pay the press to slant and bury the news. In America, our One-Party Media does it for free. It's that old Yank spirit of volunteerism!

In related European News Suppression news, Voice of Europe tweets: "YouTube tried to censor the anti-Merkel protests today! At least 4,500 people were present in Kandel."

I guess Kandels Gonna' Candle!

You can either fight for your country...or you can wave them goodbye.
