NY Times Posts Op Ed “There Is No Good Reason You Should Have To Be A Citizen to Vote”…Au Contraire, Mon Frere

See the source image

Before we get started, here is what this post is all about.

On NYtimes.com, there is an Opinion Piece by Atossa Araxia Abrahamian titled “There Is No Good Reason You Should Have to Be a Citizen to Vote”.

In it, Ms. Abrahamian states that

I’ve lived in New York since 2004, but haven’t once had a chance to cast a ballot here. Last fall, I grew so frustrated that I started mailing ballots to my hometown in Switzerland. But voting in a place I haven’t lived in since I was a minor makes about as little sense as not voting in the city where I’ve lived my entire adult life.

Uh huh.

The strongest case for noncitizen voting today is representation: The more voters show up to the polls, the more accurately elections reflect people’s desires. The United States already has plenty of institutions that account for noncitizens: The census aims to reach all residents because it believes everyone, even aliens, matters. Corporations enjoy free speech and legal personhood — and they’re not even people. Would it be such a stretch to give noncitizen residents a say in who gets elected to their state legislature, Congress or the White House?

What’s more, allowing noncitizens to vote in federal, state and municipal elections would help revitalize American democracy at a time when enthusiasm and trust are lacking. While 2020 was considered a high-turnout election, only about 65 percent of eligible voters cast ballots. Compare that to Germany, where turnout was 76 percent in the last general election.

Democrats are likely to be the biggest beneficiaries of this change — at least at first. But it could have interesting ripple effects: Elected Republicans might be induced to appeal to a more diverse constituency or perhaps to enthuse their constituents so deeply that they, too, start to vote in greater numbers.

It’s also just good civics: Allowing people to vote gives them even more of a sense of investment in their towns, cities, communities and country. There’s a detachment that comes with not being able to vote in the place where you live. Concerns about mixed loyalties, meanwhile, are misplaced. The United States not only allows dual citizenship but also allows dual citizens to vote — and from abroad. Is there any reason to think resident foreigners should be less represented?

Oh, I can think of a few.

Why are Liberals, like this New York Times Contributor, so desirous to give noncitizens, including those who are in our country illegally, the Constitutional Right to vote, a right reserved for American Citizens?

Well…

Democrats are eager to allow noncitizens to vote in OUR elections because the “Democratic Socialism” which has become their party’s political ideology is still rejected by the overwhelming majority of American Voters….and  considering the way that the Biden Administration is going down the toilet, they will lose every election they enter.

Those who are in our nation illegally will be more than happy to vote in these Democratic Socialist Candidates because they will be told and will believe that they will be getting a bunch of free stuff and they will be able to share in the American Dream.

And, those who are here legally from another country will enjoy the same rights as Americans without having to take an Oath of Loyalty which all those seeking citizenship have to take.

Voting in American Elections is a Constitutional Right as prescribed by our Founding Fathers, to be exercised by American Citizens ONLY.

President Teddy Roosevelt wrote that

We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.

But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people. 

Our Founders gifted us with our American Liberty, won through the blood of patriots.

Liberty is Freedom with Responsibility.

Voting is the responsibility of all American Citizens of legal age.

It is also a PRIVILEGE…one which illegal immigrants and those who refuse to take an oath to be LOYAL AMERICANS have not earned.

Until He Comes,

NYT Reporter Katie Benner Deletes Tweets Calling Trump Supporters “Enemies of The State”

Katie-Benner-Donald-Trump-28NYT-reporter

FoxNews.com reports that

New York Times reporter Katie Benner deleted tweets calling for Trump supporters to be considered “enemies of the state” after she faced viral backlash from critics.

Amid the first hearing of the Jan. 6 committee on Capitol Hill, Benner suggested that in order to “combat” national security threats within the country, the solution was to target the voters of the former president.

However, the Times’ Justice Department reporter later took down the tweets, claiming they were “unclearly worded.”

The Times did not respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for comment, including an inquiry about whether Benner deleted the tweets at the direction of the paper.

In the original tweets, Benner stressed that the Jan. 6 committee “underscores” what she indicated was the ongoing threat within the U.S.

“Today’s #January6thSelectCommittee underscores the America’s current, essential natsec dilemma: Work to combat legitimate national security threats now entails calling a politician’s supporters enemies of the state,” Benner wrote.

Benner explained, “As Americans, we believe that state power should not be used to work against a political figure or a political party. But what happens if a politician seems to threaten the state? If the politician continues to do so out of office and his entire party supports that threat?”

The Times’ DOJ reporter cast doubt that the Pelosi-appointed committee would resolve the “dilemma” since it remained “unresolved” following the Russia investigation and both impeachments of President Trump.

“That leaves it up to voters, making even more essential free, fair access to the polls,” Benner concluded.

Benner’s comments were slammed by critics.

“Absolutely amazing: the New York Times’ Justice Department reporter says the US faces an ‘essential natsec dilemma’: namely, that Trump supporters are ‘enemies of the state’ and all of the GOP is a threat to the State. This is a reporter — not an op-ed writer — saying this,” journalist Glenn Greenwald reacted. “Hearing anyone describe a traumatic and violent experience provoke emotions: even for police officers. That’s what today is for. But the fixation on 1/6 is about exactly this: classifying Trump supporters as Enemies of the State for political gain & Security State power.”

“Here we have an NYT reporter, channeling the views of the corrupt FBI and DOJ officials who leak to her, straight-up saying that your political opposition to the ruling regime makes you an enemy of the state by definition,” The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis summarized.

“This is such a wildly extreme statement on so many levels, couched in the phony language of journalistic impartiality,” journalist Michael Tracey slammed Benner’s comments.

Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., who was initially set to serve on the Jan. 6 committee but was rejected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., appeared to be taken aback by Benner’s tweets.

“That’s the best summary of the Biden Admin’s domestic national security strategy I’ve ever read,” Banks wrote.

The Times did not respond to Fox News’ inquiry as to whether or not Benner’s tweets violated the paper’s social media guidelines.

Was Katie Benner wearing a Brown Shirt when she was tweeting that garbage?

The Far Left Demicrat6s and their minions in the Main Stream Media are upset that average Americans, who believe in God and Country, are not “falling in line”, and becoming subservient to their clearly Marxist Political Ideology, which they believe is “best” for America.

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals, such as the Democrat Politicians on Capitol Hill and Jack Dorsey and his minions at Twitter, as “The New Fascism”, because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans’ Faith and Values and their lack of respect for our Constitution and our American System of Law and Order.

What we are seeing now, after an obviously  Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, the inaction by a  Democrat-Majority Congress in response to it, and the silencing of Conservative Voices in Social Media is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base, leading to a push toward changing America into a Marxist Nation.

Hate, envy, and control are the “pillars of faith” in Marxism in all of its forms, along with fascism.

All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.

However, since they assumed absolute power in Washington, D.C., their actions have shown average Americans EXACTLY who they are.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism which has now grown so radical as to reach the Biblical Book of Revelation levels.

If this effort by the “New Bolsheviks” is allowed to go unchecked, it will not be our Brightest and Best who will die on this field of battle, but rather, it will be our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which will die ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of the “New Fascism”, going under the non de plumes of “socialism”, “Wokeness”, and “political correctness”.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

All of this unethical political behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Just as my Daddy did when he landed on Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944 with thousands of other brave young American men, we must look this “New Fascism” straight in the face and say, “NO MORE!”

And, Ms. Benner…if anyone is an “Enemy of the State”, is it you and the rest of those instigating and supporting this New Fascism that threatens to destroy America.

Until He Comes,

1619 Project Writer Nikole Hanna-Jones Praises Cuba as “The Most Equal Country in the Western Hemisphere”…Yeah, Everybody’s Poor

 

"Cuba actually has the least inequality. And that's largely due to socialism—which I'm sure no one wants to hear," 1619 Project founder Nikole Hannah-Jones told Ezra Klein.

FoxNews.com reports that

1619 Project writer Nikole Hannah-Jones said in a podcast that she believes Cuba is the most equal country in the Western hemisphere and could serve as a model for its integration agenda.

In a 2019 podcast with Ezra Klein of Vox and The New York Times, Hannah-Jones was asked whether there were candidates or places that she thought had a “viable and sufficiently ambitious integration agenda.”

Hannah-Jones responded that while she is not an expert on race relations internationally, she believed the most “equal” and “multiracial” country in the Western hemisphere is Cuba, which she attributed to socialism.

“The most equal multi-racial country in our hemisphere, it would be Cuba,” Hannah-Jones said, as reported by the publication. “Cuba has the least inequality between Black and white people anyplace really in the hemisphere. I mean, the Caribbean, most of the Caribbean it’s hard to count because the White population in a lot of those countries is very, very small. A lot of those countries are run by Black folks. But in places that are truly at least biracial countries, Cuba actually has the least inequality. And that’s largely due to socialism—which I’m sure no one wants to hear.”

As reported by The National Pulse, Hannah-Jones also wrote an op-ed published by The Oregonian that was posted in 2008, in which she noted that there are many overlooked accomplishments in the country, including a very high literacy rate, a low HIV infection rate and a “model” universal health care system.

In the article, she also wrote that the Cuban revolution led to the “end of codified racism” and brought about universal education and access to jobs for Black Cubans.

The 1619 Project is a project spearheaded by The New York Times that delves into the effects of slavery on U.S. history. It was led by Hannah-Jones, who is a Pulitzer Prize winning writer and a professor at Howard University.

As previously reported by Fox News, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire for recent comments she has made about Cuba.

Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter that the U.S. has contributed to suffering in Cuba via its embargo, which she characterized as “absurdly cruel.”

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., who is the daughter of a Cuban immigrant, called Ocasio-Cortez a “communist sympathizer who wants to bring socialism” to the U.S. during an interview with “Fox News Sunday.”

The Far Left Democratic Party, which is full of “Useful Idiots” like Nikole Hanna-Jones and AOC,  is determined to not only rewrite American History but also to indoctrinate our children and grandchildren to hate America and our Traditional System of Faith, Values, and Patriotism.

Why is it wrong to be a Proud American?

Nationalism, placing the well-being of Americans Citizens first, is a good thing and is what being a President should be all about.

The Far Left-controlled Biden-Harris Administration, the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, look down their noses at us average Americans living here in “Flyover Country” who believe that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

Since the 8 years of the reign of King Barack The First, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses have been taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and to be a patriot or to believe in “Nationalism” was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

And now, these same clowns want to continue teaching Revisionist History to our children and grandchildren while asserting that “educated people” believe that those of us who agree with Former President Trump’s optimism and “Nationalism” and those who disagree with their anti-American beliefs are  “racist” and “uneducated”.

They really need to visit America’s heartland, where all of us average and EDUCATED Americans live.

Believe of not, y’all, there are actually colleges and universities in “Flyover Country”.

In fact, where the exceptionalism of America actually lies is not in the Halls of Power nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it is this same “Average Joe” who, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

And, we are the same ones who believe that there is no way in H-E-L-L that dementia-riddled doddering fool Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election with out a massive case of Election Fraud.

And that, boys and girls, is why the Far Left Democratic Party and Joe Biden’s Handlers built a fence around OUR Capitol and are governing like a bunch of fascist dictators..

Their ego-driven political ideology does not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality is that the overwhelming majority of Americans are still Patriots who believe in God and Country.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency in 2016.

And, stupid moves like attempting to teach our children and grandchildren that America is a “Racist Country” and the Totalitarian Communist Regime in Cuba is a brilliant example of government is going to blow up in their weasel-looking faces and cost them the next two national elections in 2022 and 2024.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

Patriotism is still cool…and “Useful Idiots” like Nikole Hanna-Jones and the  rest of the Far Left Marxism-Loving Democrats are clueless.

Another Big Nothingburger: New York Times Releases Unsubstantiated Story Claiming Trump Only Paid $750 in Income Taxes in 2016 and 2017

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump lambasted a New York Times report that said he paid no federal income taxes for 10 of the past 15 years, calling the story “fake news” and arguing that he paid large federal and state taxes.

“Its fake news, it’s totally made up,” Trump said Sunday during a press briefing less than an hour after the story broke in the newspaper. “Everything was wrong, they are so bad.”

According to the New York Times report, Trump, who has fiercely guarded his tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public, paid $750 in taxes to the federal government the year he was elected and $750 again his first year in office.

The disclosure, which the Times said comes from tax return data extending over two decades, comes at a pivotal moment ahead of the first presidential debate Tuesday and a divisive election.

Trump, whose net worth is claimed to be in the billions, denied that he paid such a small amount in taxes.

“I’ve paid a lot and I’ve paid a lot state income taxes too,” he said.

Even before being elected to the White House in 2016, Trump was heavily criticized for not releasing his tax filing. He has claimed multiple times that he is under a routine audit by the Internal Revenue Service and will release his filings once the audit is over.

“I’m under audit,” Trump said Sunday. “They’re doing an assessment.”

A lawyer for the Trump Organization, Alan Garten, also denied to the New York Times that the president paid such a small amount of taxes – saying in a statement obtained by Fox News that Trump “has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015.”

“The New York Times’ story is riddled with gross inaccuracies.  Over the past decade the President has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government,” Garten said. “While we tried to explain this to the Times, they refused to listen and rejected our repeated request that they show us any of the documentation they purport to be relying on to substantiate their claims.”

He added: “Obviously this is just part of the Times’ ongoing smear campaign in the run up to the election.”

The New York Times did not release the copies of Trump’s tax filings they had received, saying they were protecting sources.

The once-proud “Grey Lady” has become a laughingstock, being driven straight into the ground by Trump Derangement Syndrome-stricken Modern American Liberal Writers and Editors, determined to somehow stop President Trump from being relected.

The New York Times, like the rest of the Main Stream Media, has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bring home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store, to read with his morning coffee.

Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies constantly being peddled by the Main Stream Media about our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.

The good news is that the majority of Americas are not buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.

Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority and the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media by the sharing of information through Social Media.

Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as The Times, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself. A fact which is the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who are attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in the installation of a Far Left Democrat Ruling Class culminating in a Biden Presidency (for at least a couple of weeks, then they will boot him out for Kamala Harris).

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The Medium is the message.

He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.

Unfortunately for The New York Times and the rest of the Main Stream Media, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes, the Democratic Party, and the Clintons, in particular, is well-documented and has led to their being dismissed by average Americans as, as Trump remarked, being known as purveyors of “fake news”.

Equally unfortunate for the Liberal Media, is that fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.

And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.

Americans no longer implicitly trust the Main Stream Media.

By continuing to immerse themselves in soul-searing grief and self-pity over the fact of the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, they continue to distance themselves from the majority of American Thought.

Their Fake News Stories and the rest of their behind-the-scenes maneuvering and other Political Machinations have produced nothing but epic failure.

Donald J. Trump is still the President of the United States of America.

All that the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media have left is, now sing along with me, boys and girls, (who remember the song)…

Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Thinkin’ and Prayin’…

New York Times Fires Editorial Page Editor Over Allowing Republican Senator Tom Cotton to Post a Conservative Op Ed “Objectivity?” “What’s That?”

Nytimes_hq

…diversity and tolerance have been under attack for years….the demand from the left is that everyone think a certain way. It’s a dangerous path. – Richard Grenell, Twitter, 6/7/20

FoxNews.com reports that

The New York Times announced Sunday that Editorial Page Editor James Bennet is resigning — amid reports of anger inside the company over the publication of an op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton about the George Floyd unrest last week.

Bennet, the brother of 2020 White House candidate Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., had apologized late last week after previously defending the piece, titled, “Send in the Troops.” Cotton, R-Ark., called for the government to deploy troops as a last resort to help quell riots and looting that emerged amid the anger over Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody last month.

The publication sparked a revolt among Times journalists, with some saying it endangered black employees. Some staff members called out sick Thursday in protest, and the Times later announced that a review found the piece did not meet its standards.

“The journalism of Times Opinion has never mattered more than in this time of crisis at home and around the world, and I’ve been honored to be part of it,” Bennet said in a statement. “I’m so proud of the work my colleagues and I have done to focus attention on injustice and threats to freedom and to enrich debate about the right path forward by bringing new voices and ideas to Times readers.”

For his part, Cotton has criticized the Times for distancing itself from the op-ed.

“The New York Times editorial page editor and owner defended it in public statements but then they totally surrendered to a woke child mob from their own newsroom that apparently gets triggered if they’re presented with any opinion contrary to their own, as opposed to telling the woke children in their newsroom this is the workplace, not a social-justice seminar on campus,” Cotton told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

The announcement of Bennet’s departure was made by Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger in a memo to staff.

“Last week we saw a significant breakdown in our editing processes, not the first we’ve experienced in recent years,” Sulzberger wrote. “James and I agreed that it would take a new team to lead the department through a period of considerable change.”

Cotton blasted the Times for a tweet that he said misrepresented his argument — specifically, that he supposedly called for “military force against protesters in American cities.”

“This is false and offensive,” Cotton tweeted. “I called for using military force as a backup–only if police are overwhelmed–to stop riots, not to be used against protesters. If @nytimes has any decency left, they should retract this smear.”

 Fox News has reached out to the Times for comment.

President Trump weighed in on the matter by commending Cotton’s op-ed piece, and denouncing the Times as “Fake News.”

In the wake of Cotton’s op-ed, the Times announced several changes, including expanding its fact-checking operation and reducing the number of op-eds, opinion pieces written by outside contributors.

Unfortunately, Senator Cotton, The New Your Times, like it bosses, the Far Left Democratic Party and the Special Interest Groups which they support like Antifa and Black Lives Matter indeed have no decency left.

Their god is the political philosophy of Marxism, which preaches hate, envy, and control.

Their political ideology is as far away from that of the overwhelming majority of average Americans as Rosie O’Donnell is from a Weight Watchers Meeting.

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values and their lack of respect for our Constitution and our American System of Law and Order.

What we are seeing now, as regards the recent riots and the push in Democratically-governed cities to eliminate their police departments is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.

Hate, envy, and control are the “pillars of faith” in Marxism in all of its forms, fascism, and, of course, Islam.

All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism which has now grown so radical as to reach the Biblical Book of Revelation levels.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with  bricks, soda bottles, and fiery racial rhetoric designed to tear our Sovereign Nation apart at the seams.

The New York Times, a longtime soldier in the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media is an example of how fascistic the Far Left Democrats have become.

There is no room any more in their “woke” world for dissenting opinions, especially those from Conservative Patriots like Senator Tom Cotton.

If one of their “foot soldiers”, like the Times’ Opinion Editor, dares to allow Free Speech, they are banished from the “Woke” world of “The Smartest People in the Room”.

If this effort by the “New Bolsheviks” is allowed to go unchecked, it will not be our Brightest and Best who will die on this field of battle, but rather, it will be our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which will die ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of the “New Fascism”, going under the non de plumes of “socialism” and “political correctness”.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

All of this unethical political behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Just as my Daddy did when he landed on Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944 with thousands of other brave young American men, we must look this “New Fascism” straight in the face and say, “NO MORE!”

Memorial Day 2020: Ungrateful New York Times Claims Military “Celebrates White Supremacy”

memorial-day-wishes-1024x633

FoxNews.com reports that

As Americans reeling from coronavirus stay-at-home orders struggle to celebrate the nation’s heroes on Memorial Day, The New York Times published an editorial over the weekend that claims the U.S. military celebrates white supremacy.

On Sunday, The New York Times Editorial Board published the piece titled “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” The editorial made the argument that it’s time to rename military bases after “American heroes, not racist traitors.”

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Rath Hoffman tweeted Sunday night in response: “On a solemn day for remembering those that have given their lives for our country fighting against tyranny and subjugation, the NYT has more than a million possible stories of the ultimate sacrifice by American patriots that they could tell. But they don’t.”

He followed up, in a statement: “The Department of Defense is the most diverse meritocracy in the country and the most powerful force for good in world history. We have many stories of valor still waiting to be told this Memorial Day weekend.”

The New York Times editorial board wrote that “the federal government embraced pillars of the white supremacist movement when it named military bases in the South.”

The editorial listed Fort Benning, Ga., as an example, noting that the military base honored Henry Lewis Benning, a Confederate general “who devoted himself to the premise that African-Americans were not really human and could never be trusted with full citizenship.”

The editorial pointed to Benning’s “now-famous speech in 1861” during which “he told secession conventioneers in Virginia that his native state of Georgia had left the union for one reason — to ‘prevent the abolition of her slavery.’”

The editorial board noted that Benning’s statements “strongly resemble that of present-day white supremacists — and reference the race war theme put forward by the young racist who murdered nine African-Americans in Charleston five years ago.”

In 2017, Dylann Roof was formally sentenced to death for the church massacre in Charleston, S.C., two years before.

The editorial also pointed to another Georgia base named after a Confederate general, John Brown Gordon, writing that by naming the base after him, “the federal government venerated a man who was a leader of the Georgia Ku Klux Klan after the Civil War and who may have taken on a broader role in the terrorist organization when its first national leader — a former Confederate general, Nathan Bedford Forrest — suffered declining health.”

The New York Times editorial board referenced comments made by an Army spokesman who told TIME in 2015 there was no need to remove Confederate base names because the “historic names represent individuals, not causes or ideologies.”

The editorial board then laid out the “problems” with that argument, writing that “these men were traitors” and that “the names represent not only oppression before and during the Civil War, but also state-sponsored bigotry after it.”

“Bases named for men who sought to destroy the Union in the name of racial injustice are an insult to the ideals servicemen and women are sworn to uphold — and an embarrassing artifact of the time when the military itself embraced anti-American values,” the editorial continued. “It is long past time for those bases to be renamed.”

Back around 2013 or so, Liberal Democrats started pushing to removing everything concerning the Confederate Stats of America from both the history books and the landscape of our country.

When a psychopath murdered several black Americans in a church service in Charleston, South Carolina, that horrible tragedy gave the Democrats the excuse to start removing the “Stars and Bars” from public view and changing the names of streets in American towns and cities which may or may not have been named after a historic figure who was a member of the Confederacy.

The Confederate Purge has been carried out by Liberal Democrats in the name of “Political Correctness” since then.

However, that was not enough censorship nor cultural cleansing for them.

Now, they want to rename Military Bases because they are offended by history.

Since before the 2016 President Election, I have referred to those who want to be known as “The Resistance”, as “The New Bolsheviks” because of the striking similarity of their actions to the ruthless aggression displayed by those who followed Vladimir Lenin in the Russian Revolution of 1918.

However, there is another group that these “brave new radicals” remind me of: the barbarians of Islamic State, or ISIS.

When they would take over a city in the Middle East, for example Palmyra, one of the first things that they would do would be to tear down the area’s historical sites, destroying any artifacts and antiquities which they did not like, in order to establish that their culture was supreme, just as Lenin’s Bolsheviks did.

“The Resistance” or protestors, if you will, who are bringing down the historical statues which I just mentioned, who are now wanting to rename military bases, also proclaim their self-serving self-righteousness through their actions.

As an American, I see nothing different from their actions than those of the Bolsheviks and the Radical Islamists of ISIS.

The subjects of all of this censorship were Americans. In the case of the Confederate Generals, most of them were West Point Graduates who proudly served their country before the War Between the States.

The Civil War was a seminal moment in American History.

If you find that time in our nation’s history to be offensive, then that is your prerogative as an American. However, your hurt feelings do not give you the right to attempt to erase history by pulling down a statue which is not your property or claiming that our Brightest and Best celebrate “White Supremacy”.

Attacking the U.S. Military on the weekend before Memorial Day, the day when we honor those brave men and women of all ethnicities who fought and died to preserve our freedom, shows just how far down the ol’ porcelain receptacle the once mighty New York Times has traveled.

It’s time for The New York Times to get flushed.

May we, as a nation, always remember the brave men and women who sacrificed all so that we might remain free.

NY Times Op Ed Blames the “Religious Right” for Coronavirus…America is Fighting 3 Enemies: 2 are Invisible, 1 is Political

untitled (310)

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20

In an op ed for The New York Times By Katherine Stewart titled “The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response”, she wrote that

Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.

At least since the 19th century, when the proslavery theologian Robert Lewis Dabney attacked the physical sciences as “theories of unbelief,” hostility to science has characterized the more extreme forms of religious nationalism in the United States. Today, the hard core of climate deniers is concentrated among people who identify as religiously conservative Republicans. And some leaders of the Christian nationalist movement, like those allied with the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, which has denounced environmental science as a “Cult of the Green Dragon,” cast environmentalism as an alternative — and false — theology.

This denial of science and critical thinking among religious ultraconservatives now haunts the American response to the coronavirus crisis. On March 15, Guillermo Maldonado, who calls himself an “apostle” and hosted Mr. Trump earlier this year at a campaign event at his Miami megachurch, urged his congregants to show up for worship services in person. “Do you believe God would bring his people to his house to be contagious with the virus? Of course not,” he said.

Rodney Howard-Browne of The River at Tampa Bay Church in Florida mocked people concerned about the disease as “pansies” and insisted he would only shutter the doors to his packed church “when the rapture is taking place.” In a sermon that was live-streamed on Facebook, Tony Spell, a pastor in Louisiana, said, “We’re also going to pass out anointed handkerchiefs to people who may have a fear, who may have a sickness and we believe that when those anointed handkerchiefs go, that healing virtue is going to go on them as well.”

By all accounts, President Trump’s tendency to trust his gut over the experts on issues like vaccines and climate change does not come from any deep-seated religious conviction. But he is perfectly in tune with the religious nationalists who form the core of his base. In his daily briefings from the White House, Mr. Trump actively disdains and contradicts the messages coming from his own experts and touts as yet unproven cures.

Not every pastor is behaving recklessly, of course, and not every churchgoer in these uncertain times is showing up for services out of disregard for the scientific evidence. Far from it. Yet none of the benign uses of religion in this time of crisis have anything to do with Mr. Trump’s expressed hope that the country would be “opened up and just raring to go by Easter.” He could, of course, have said, “by mid-April.” But Mr. Trump did not invoke Easter by accident, and many of his evangelical allies were pleased by his vision of “packed churches all over our country.”

“I think it would be a beautiful time,” the president said.

Religious nationalism has brought to American politics the conviction that our political differences are a battle between absolute evil and absolute good. When you’re engaged in a struggle between the “party of life” and the “party of death,” as some religious nationalists now frame our political divisions, you don’t need to worry about crafting careful policy based on expert opinion and analysis. Only a heroic leader, free from the scruples of political correctness, can save the righteous from the damned. Fealty to the cause is everything; fidelity to the facts means nothing. Perhaps this is why many Christian nationalist leaders greeted the news of the coronavirus as an insult to their chosen leader.

…One of the first casualties of fact-free hyper-partisanship is competence in government. The incompetence of the Trump administration in grappling with this crisis is by now well known, at least among those who receive actual news. February 2020 will go down in history as the month in which the United States, in painful contrast with countries like South Korea and Germany, failed to develop the mass testing capability that might have saved many lives. Less well known is the contribution of the Christian nationalist movement in ensuring that our government is in the hands of people who appear to be incapable of running it well.

It is fair to point out that the failings of the Trump administration in the current pandemic are at least as attributable to its economic ideology as they are to its religious inclinations. When the so-called private sector is supposed to have the answer to every problem, it’s hard to deal effectively with the very public problem of a pandemic and its economic consequences. But if you examine the political roots of the life-threatening belief in the privatization of everything, you’ll see that Christian nationalism played a major role in creating and promoting the economic foundations of America’s incompetent response to the pandemic.

For decades, Christian nationalist leaders have lined up with the anti-government, anti-tax agenda not just as a matter of politics but also as a matter of theology. Ken Blackwell of the Family Research Council, one of the Christian right’s major activist groups, has gone so far as to cast food stamps and other forms of government assistance for essential services as contrary to the “biblical model.” Limited government, according to this line of thinking, is “godly government.”

When a strong centralized response is needed from the federal government, it doesn’t help to have an administration that has never believed in a federal government serving the public good. Ordinarily, the consequences of this kind of behavior don’t show up for some time. In the case of a pandemic, the consequences are too obvious to ignore.

***Katherine Stewart (@kathsstewart) is the author of “The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism.”***

Consider, if you will, a country in which its president is being attacked mercilessly by the opposition political party and their minions in the Main Stream Media for keeping his promise to protect his country’s citizens in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.

…a country where a black actor hires 2 extras from his television show to dress up like supporters of a sitting president, put a noose around his neck and rough him up, simply because the president happens to be from the opposite political party as the actor, and the actor is still upset over his candidate having been defeated in the last election.

…a country in which the Governor of New York proclaims to a national Audience that “every human life matters”, while supporting killing babies after they are born.

…a country in which the faith of 75% of its citizens is constantly attacked by the same people who constantly attack its President.

“You are traveling through a previously unknown country, a country whose population has politically been torn asunder, a country whose Democratic Leadership have forsworn its traditional faith and values to embrace those of its enemies. A country whose great promise is once again being realized, despite the best efforts of its enemies within. There’s a signpost up ahead. Next stop, America 2020.”

This country has been pulling apart at the seams since the night of November 8, 2016, which Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President.

And the thing is, it is not his fault.

The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.

In an article written for Decision Magazine dated February 12, 2012, America’s Pastor, Rev. Billy Graham, wrote on the subject of “Confusing Evil With Good”. Here are some excerpts…

Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today. If evil were not made to appear good, there would be no such thing as temptation. It is in their close similarity that the danger lies.

Modern social righteousness often differs from the righteousness of the Bible. Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! Divorce was once frowned upon by society, and laws against fornication and adultery were strictly enforced. But now divorce is accepted by society, and fornication is glorified in our literature and films.

The Bible says: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” God has not changed. His standards have not been lowered. God still calls immorality a sin, and the Bible says God is going to judge it.

Honesty was once the hallmark of character. But it has been set aside with an “It’s all right if you don’t get caught” philosophy. Only when we are in court are we required to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

…How do we get our values so mixed up? How do we fall into this trap of Satan? For one thing, we’re shortsighted. We look for shortcuts to happiness. Our lust for immediate pleasure prompts us to think of evil as good.

In one of novelist John Steinbeck’s books he has a character saying: “If it succeeds, they will be thought not crooked but clever.” In our desire to achieve success quickly, it is easy to get our values mixed up and call evil good and good evil.

Another way to call evil good is to say that morals are relative. Someone has said: “As the occasion, so the behavior.” We have changed our moral code to fit our behavior instead of changing our behavior to harmonize with our moral code. Nothing is firm today. We are not on solid ground. Young people are shifting from one side to the other. Morally, they are drifting aimlessly without compass or guide.

Still another way that evil is called good is for the conscience to be perverted, and certainly our consciences today are perverted. But right is right even if nobody is right, and wrong is wrong even if everybody is wrong. God does not change the moral law to suit our behavior.

…The modern conscience has been twisted and distorted so badly that it is difficult to tell what is genuine and what is false.

Self-centeredness is another reason we are so inclined to call evil good. When something brings profit or pleasure to us we are inclined to call evil good, even though we know it is dead wrong. “But it’s what I’ve always wanted,” or, “It’s good for me, although I know it’s wrong” are the alibis we have manufactured to justify evil and call it good.

It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.

The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war not just against the Chinese Coronavirus, but also against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels and our country’s failing Liberal Newspapers like the New York Times. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so, if allowed to do so, it would lead to America’s downfall.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

Now, more than ever, in the midst of this pandemic, our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday as we finish watching church services on the internet via our Smart TVs.

“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”

Because believe me, Americans…we are in one with three enemies. Two enemies are invisible and one is political.

Pray for those who are out “on the front line” fighting the Chinese Coronavirus every day and caring for those who are sick with it,

Pray for our President.

Pray for our country.

God Bless America.

The New York Times Attempts to Name Coronavirus After Trump, Fails Miserably…Again

04-covid-friend-la-600

FoxNews.com reports that

The New York Times was widely mocked on Thursday over an op-ed column that criticized the White House response to the coronavirus outbreak by declaring that the ailment should be referred to as “Trumpvirus.”

The piece by columnist Gail Collins was headlined, “Let’s Call It Trumpvirus,” and declared that “if you’re feeling awful, you know who to blame.”

“The New York Times is blaming coronavirus on Trump now … when they should be blaming themselves for the outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” political satirist Tim Young tweeted.

Fourth Watch editor Steve Krakauer captioned the column, “Our media is broken – perhaps irreparably so.”

In the widely lampooned piece, Collins criticized Vice President Mike Pence, who has been assigned to lead the government’s coronavirus response.

“Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s somebody in charge. At least Trump didn’t come before the cameras and announce solemnly, ‘Today I’m asking every American to cross your fingers,’” Collins wrote.

“Our president had to be going crazy over a problem that involves both declining stock prices and germs. This is the guy, after all, who thinks shaking hands is ‘barbaric,’ who is followed around by aides bearing sanitizer,” Collins wrote.

The Times columnist then mocked Trump for blaming the financial markets on Democrats, misspelling coronavirus in a tweet, telling Americans that things are under control and not being as prepared as his predecessor.

“Barack Obama used to have special epidemic-watching groups just in case this kind of crisis developed,” Collins wrote.

“Chances are, if the president is encouraged to mix the subjects of coronavirus and Mexico walls, he’ll suddenly announce that we need a barrier much bigger and thicker and more expensive, so it can stop the flow of immigrant germs,” Collins wrote to end her column.

Critics mocked the piece on Twitter.

The column was published one day after the Trump campaign filed a libel lawsuit against what it called the “extremely biased” New York Times, saying the paper’s March 27, 2019 op-ed titled “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo” amounted to a knowingly false smear intended to “improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020.”

“They did a bad thing,” Trump said at a coronavirus press conference later Wednesday, before apparently promising more litigation. “There will be more coming. There will be more coming.”

Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 with 46% of the vote.

Over three years into the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division is more cavernous as ever.

While the News Organizations like the failing New York Times who inhabit the never-ending metropolitan areas of the East and Left Coasts and the “Beltway” insist, as “some old Lib” named Phil Donahue did in July of 2017 that,

This is the darkest political moment in American History.

Despite what they choose to think and advocate for, those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, continue to support the man whom we elected to the most powerful office in the Free World…because he is not a politician.

Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters such as the erroneous claims that President Trump is a racist, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to remove President Trump from office, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.

Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…

None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, photoshopped pictures, “Antifa”, and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook are making any difference to average Americans.

The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue through their sheer arrogance and hatred for the traditional American Way of Life, to distance themselves from the people whom they continue to claim that they “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

Yet still, they expect us to believe the Fake News which they are desperately trying to distribute in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, and which Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and the rest of the “useful idiots”, in their shared madness, can regain the White House, even though all of their Primary Candidates do not stand a chance against President Donald J. Trump..

Americans do not care what Main Stream Media “journalists” such as those employed by the failing New York Times, like the author of that stupid opinion piece, Gail Collins, think.

To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even the Liberal Trolls who inhabit President Trump’s Twitter Account can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party have been divorced from each other for a long time.

The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who, as the failing New York times has so clearly and unwittingly illuminated in the last several years, look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.

The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted in 2016 and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.

Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for 8 interminable years on November 8th, 2016.

The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as

the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.

Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum like the failing New York Times and the rest of the Main Stream Media?

Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate, which includes building a wall on our Southern Border, regardless what your highly inaccurate Democrat sample-heavy polls show. If you polls were accurate, Hillary Clinton would be our nation’s President (shudder).

And, average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom Democrats and the MSM “journalists” like The failing New York Times continue to insult and ridicule on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.

Because it is evident by what he has accomplished since he took office that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

That is why none of the lightweight Liberal Democratic Presidential Candidates stand a chance this November of unseating him.

Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President.

Average Americans have your back.

Bolton’s Lawyer Says NSC’s Process of Reviewing Pending Manuscripts “Corrupted” After NYT Leak

untitled (297)

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1221617314044485632

FoxNews.com reports that

A top aide to former national security adviser John Bolton is disputing part of a Sunday report in The New York Times, which claimed Bolton had shared a manuscript of his forthcoming book with “close associates” — and Bolton’s lawyer is saying the National Security Council’s review process of pending manuscripts is “corrupted.”

The Times reported that the manuscript included a bombshell claim that Trump explicitly linked a hold on Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden.

Trump told Bolton in August, according to a transcript of Bolton’s forthcoming book reviewed by the Times, “that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens.”

The Times reported that Bolton had circulated “drafts of a manuscript he has circulated in recent weeks to close associates” and also “sent a draft to the White House for a standard review process for some current and former administration officials who write books.”

Sarah Tinsley, a senior adviser to Bolton, told Fox News he had submitted a hard copy draft of his manuscript to the NSC [National Security Council] several weeks ago for “pre-publication review,” but had not shared it with anyone else.

A “pre-publication review” is standard for any former government officials who held security clearances and publicly write about their official work. The review typically would focus on ferreting out any classified or sensitive material in advance of publication, and could take from days to months.

In a statement obtained by Fox News, Bolton attorney Charles Cooper lamened that the review process had been “corrupted.”

“On December 30, 2019, I submitted, on behalf of Ambassador Bolton, a book manuscript to the National Security Council’s Records Management Division for standard prepublication security review for classified information. As explained in my cover letter to Ellen J. Knight, Senior Director of the Records Management Division, we submitted the manuscript notwithstanding our firm belief that the manuscript contained no information that could reasonably be considered classified and on the assurance that the ‘process of reviewing submitted materials is restricted to those career government officials and employees regularly charged with responsibility for such reviews’ and that the ‘contents of Ambassador Bolton’s manuscript will not be reviewed or otherwise disclosed to any persons not regularly involved in that process.'”

Cooper continued: “A copy of my December 30 letter is attached. It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted and that information has been disclosed by persons other than those properly involved in reviewing the manuscript.”

Bolton resigned last September. His team declined to “speculate” to Fox News as to how a description of his manuscript might have leaked to the Times.

Additionally, Bolton’s representatives made clear he was not denying the Times’ claim concerning the Ukraine aid holdup and the possible investigation of the Bidens.

At a Fox News Town Hall with Chris Wallace on Sunday in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, Pete Buttigieg joined a chrous of Democrats in calling for Bolton to testify in the wake of the Times’ report.

“Just now, we’re getting more indications about John Bolton, and what he knew, which is one more reason why, if this is a serious trial, we’re going to have the witnesses and evidence,” Buttigieg said.

Trump’s lawyers this week are set to resume presenting their defense in the Senate, which will then decide whether to hear additional witnesses by a simple majority vote. At the Town Hall, Buttigieg emphasized that Trump should be removed from office — a highly unlikely eventuality, given that a two-thirds vote of the GOP-controlled Senate would be necessary.

The report above was one of the top stories from yesterday, overshadowed by the tragic death of NBA Legend Kobe Bryant, his 13-year old daughter, and 7 others in a helicopter crash in California.

There are some curious things in this report that I am trying to figure out.

For instance, why would Trump hold money from Ukraine? They had already reopened the Biden Investigation four months before the phone call.

RedState.com reported on 10/9/19 that

Investigative reporter John Solomon appeared on “Hannity” Tuesday night to present new documents which show Ukraine had reopened an investigation into Hunter Biden’s payments from Burisma four months before the July 25th conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Then, there is the matter of how an advance draft of John Bolton’s new book got into the grubby little fingers of the Failing New York Times.

I would bet that there are some Deep State Operatives from the Obama Administration still working in the National Security Council…nameless, faceless bureaucratic pencil-pushers with access to the draft and a vendetta to keep against the President of the United States of America.

Just as was the case in every other leak coming from one of our Intelligence Agencies to a “soldiers” in the Democratic Party Vanguard known as the Main Stream Press, this information was leaked to attempt to damage President Trump and to drive him from office.

Most Americans, even casual news watchers, are aware that Bolton did not leave the Administration on the best of terms with the President. They have two different views on how America’s Foreign Policy should be carried out.

There, if Bolton actually is taking shots at the President in his new book, it will not be that big a surprise, although the Democrats and their minions in the MSM will try to make it “yuge”.

As the above article states, President Trump will NOT be impeached due to the Republicans being the majority party in the Senate.

And, might I add, I would not be surprised to see some of the Red State “Moderate” Democrats vote to acquit him as well.

…especially after Trump’s Legal Defense Team finishes the job they began on Saturday of tearing the House Dems’ flimsy Cast for Impeachment apart.

Ret. General Compares Trump to Mussolini for Ending Federal Agencies’ Subscriptions to NYT and WaPo…Really?…I Think It’s Great!

NY-Times_all-the-news-that-fits_Henry-Payne

There is no news media. There’s simply a bunch of people on television and in newspapers who are ranking members of the Democrat Party. – Rush Limbaugh

FoxNews.com reports that

Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey on Friday compared the Trump administration’s directive to federal agencies to cancel subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post to fascist Italian leader Benito Mussolini.

In a tweet, the former four-star general called the decision a “watershed moment in history.”

“The White House Trump statement telling the entire Federal Government to terminate subscriptions to the NYT and Wash Post is a watershed moment in national history,” McCaffrey said. “No room for HUMOROUS media coverage. This is deadly serious. This is Mussolini.”

On Tuesday, the White House said it would not renew subscriptions to both newspapers a day after Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that “we don’t even want it in the White House anymore.”

“We’re going to probably terminate that [The Times] and The Washington Post. They’re fake,” he said.

Trump has repeatedly accused both papers — and a number of other media outlets — of unfair coverage.

McCaffrey has criticized Trump on several other occasions. Earlier this year, he warned of Trump pardoning military personnel accused of war crimes, destroying U.S. alliances with Europe, and called him a “serious threat to U.S. national security.”

McCaffrey has also taken issue with disparaging comments made by Trump against former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, whom the president called “the world’s most overrated general.”

President Trump was well within the parameters of his job to decide what our Federal Agencies spend taxpayer money on.

Please explain to me why the agencies who are a part of his Administration simply MUST subscribe to the New York Times and the Washington Post, two newspapers who have devolved into nothing more than Propaganda Arms of the Democratic Party, attacking President Trump and his Administration in numerous articles every single day.

You would have thought that the Main Stream Media in general would have figured out that Trump is not like any other Republican President in recent memory.

HE FIGHTS BACK.

First he stopped the Daily Press Briefings because Acosta and his fellow members of the Hive-Mind had turned what used to be an informative meeting into a circus sideshow designed to attack both the President and His Press Secretary, while the reporters made themselves the focus of the “news”, instead of just reporting it like they are supposed to.

Just as fewer and fewer Americans are watching CNN and MSNBC, so are fewer and fewer Americans subscribing to the New York Times, the Washington Post, and all of their fellow Liberal Rags across the country.

Liberal “journalists”, both print and broadcast, have not figured out that their Far Left Liberal Personal political ideology is not shared by the majority of Americans.

They need to wake up and smell what they are shoveling because average Americans are tired of the odor of B.S. coming from their reporting.

You would have thought that, after all of their predictions and assurances to Americans that Hillary Clinton was going to be the 45th President of the United States turned out to be completely wrong, that they was have stepped back and performed a self-assessment of themselves and the product that they were putting out.

Instead, just like their masters in the Far Left Democratic Party, they doubled down on their didactic arrogance and production of fictional articles, now known as “Fake News”, thanks to President Trump.

That is what has led to this “Watershed Moment” as the General called it.

It wasn’t some sort of fascism on the President’s part.

It was a thoughtful and well-measured reaction to over 3 years of Fake News and Personal Attacks.

Just like most average Americans have already done with Liberal Newspapers around the country, the President cancelled his subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post because they were not worth the money that he was spending on them.
