Fox’s Big Mistake

This video has shocked conservatives:

It shouldn’t.

Fox News daytime has been unwatchable for at least a year. Their shows and hosts do not lean conservative. They feature liberals like Marie Harf in the above video and they work to suppress anti liberal thought. Consider Shep Smith, who ruled the day for a long time on Fox, and even Donna Brazile.

Even so, it is unconscionable how swiftly and thoroughly they move to stop Newt Gingrich from even a discussion of George Soros. If you recall, Glenn Beck got ousted from Fox when he insisted on fingering the crazy billionaire.

It’s a big mistake on Fox’s part. They have smugly decided they are the only game in town. They aren’t. On broadcast One America News is nipping at their heels, as well as Newsmax.

Then there are countless YouTube channels that actually allow guests to talk more than four minutes and are unafraid to take a definitive position on issues. I and others spend some of the day tuning out broadcast and watching these. There are so many, it’s even hard to keep up.

Here’s a list of ones I am aware of and watch: Dan Bongino, Right Side Broadcasting (they cover all Trump rallies and events from beginning to end without interruption), America First with Sebastian Gorka, American Thought leaders (from the Epoch times hour long interviews with politicians, authors and experts), Bannon War Room, Blaze TV, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray Unleashed, Breitbart News, China Uncensored, Crossroads with Joshua Philip (also a source for news about China you don’t get anywhere else) and Donald J. Trump (clips and interviews).

There there is Full Measure with Sheryl Atkinson, Judicial Watch, Katie Hopkins (the brash British conservative), Michael Knowles, Mr. Reagan, Real Coffee with Scott Adams, Rebel News (a look at Canadian politics and American from a conservative viewpoint), Steven Crowder, Stu Does America, The Daily Wire (the Ben Shapiro site), The Federalist, Church Militant (about Catholics but 100% pro Trump), Taylor Marshall (also Catholic and also pro Trump), the Heritage Foundation, Verdict with Ted Cruz and Viva Frei (a lawyer who dissects current court rulings).

I’m sure I’m missing some.
That doesn’t even get into conservative talk radio.

Jack Cashill, author of Unmasking Obama and other political books, calls these networks and conservative websites the samizdat. The word refers to groups of dissidents in the Soviet Union who circumvented the party line via clandestine copying and distributing literature banned by the state. He says that conservatives in the U.S. have done the same thing to circumvent our corrupt media.

It is Cashill’s belief that the samizdat will propel Trump to victory as he says it did in 2016. Notice that Trump pays attention to these outlets. He took Joe Rogan up on the challenge to debate Biden immediately. He is aware that Rogan has the number one YouTube audience in the country, even if the mainstreamers ignore it.

Trump also gives interviews to the samizdat. He does not underestimate them as Fox News does.

For a look at what’s in store, consider how sports fans have turned away from their favorite football, baseball and basketball on networks, even as people are hungry for sports. They get it. They are not looking to be woke. They just want the game.

We just want the truth and are not getting it conventionally. Why don’t they see this?

Not a Good Thing That Portland Riots End

Victoria Taft at PJMedia concludes that the rioting in Portland has ended:

Have Portland’s Professional Protesters™ been smoked out? Since May 29th, Portland has been the back drop of more than 100 nights of antifa, anarchist and Black Lives Matter, Inc™ terroristic riots. They set fires, looted, and intimidated people by threatening to burn them alive in their homes.

But after the millions of dollars of destruction, criminality and thuggery it stopped last week. Poof!

Why?

I certainly don’t want to tempt these thugs, but it can’t go without saying that Portland’s 100 plus days of riots appeared to end after Wednesday, September 9th.

Could it be because of the wildfires in Oregon? Perhaps a switch in tactics?

She says, “Riot-weary Oregonians aren’t necessarily mollified by the concerted effort to shut down these reports. Until last Wednesday night, they’d seen the antifa rioters and arsonists in action on the news every night in Portland. And now some of them swore they saw those people in Estacada, Sandy, Molalla and other parts of the burning Clackamas County…Oregonians might well wonder that these “threat actors” are doing their arsons in the tinder dry woodlands of the state instead of nearby downtown Portland…
“The riots have stopped. Did they go to San Francisco or Lancaster, Pennsylvania to raise hell? Did they stop because of the smokey skies and air quality numbers that are off the charts? It seems unlikely that a group that spawned a murderer, multiple arsonists and police assaulters would be dissuaded by smoky quality air. Is it because the media are busy covering the wildfires and there’s nothing in rioting for the terrorists? Or is it because of something else?

“The riots are over for now. Why?”

Some analysts say because the rioting is hurting Biden’s election chances.

I fear a more sinister plot.
Reporter Lara Logan noted that Antifa groups have said, ““We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days.”

The website for the group said, “#WhiteHouseSiege will electrify the U.S. election season — and it doesn’t stop there. Drawing wind from #MeToo, #BLM, #ExtinctionRebellion, and protests against Trump’s lethal bungling of coronavirus, we’ll inspire a global movement of systemic change — a Global Spring — a cultural heave towards a true world order.”

We know that these evil people are transported to various sites around the country to incite violence. That’s probably the real reason the Portland events have ceased. They’ve all flown to DC for an all out assault on our democracy.

We’ll know soon.

Sound Familiar?

There was a time in Memphis when home owners didn’t concern themselves with locking their doors. Kids played outside with friends til dusk and moms didn’t even dream of kidnappings, drive by shootings or abductions for child pornography.

In Midtown, the area was quite conservative and no one here decried the police, worried about break-ins or bemoaned the quality of public schools.

Since we got liberal and woke, all of that has disappeared. You may say that race relations were bad back in the day, but was the black community so filled with violence? Are race relations better today? Not according to Black Lives Matter.

Powerlineblog relates a similar story in another enclave, Edina, a suburb.

“Edina, Minnesota, is an elite suburb that formerly had one of the most outstanding public school districts in the country. That was before Edina’s school system went woke and began prioritizing indoctrination over education. In recent years, Edina’s schools have slipped badly in objective test measurements.

“This coincides with the city’s transformation from a Republican bastion, as recently as 25 years ago, to a deep-blue outpost of progressivism. How is that working out for Edina? In addition to the decline of the town’s schools, crime has arrived. As law enforcement has collapsed following the George Floyd riots–a development that was applauded by many, likely most, Edina residents–the chickens are coming home to roost. So we see news of carjackings…:

“Carjackings in the middle of the afternoon are, to put it mildly, a new development. But not a unique one. From NextDoor:

“Hit and run. My son was hit and run by a vehicle that was running 55 mph on a 25 mph speed limit. The accident happened yesterday at the intersection of 70th & France. Two guys were in the vehicle and ran a red light. Thank God my son is fine, able to get off his car in one piece & coherent. The two guys fled off the scene. No matter how careful you are on the road there are crazy drivers around that do not care. With all the cameras in that intersection, I hope those two will get caught. Stay safe everyone!

“Life-threatening crime in elite suburbs like Edina is a new phenomenon, but residents had better get used to it if they continue to support BLM and other anti-law enforcement causes. What do they think is going to happen if law enforcement is dismantled?

“The stark choice between law and order and violent crime is on the ballot in November. Frankly, I suspect that a majority of Edina residents are too far gone to make a rational decision. One hopes that is not the case in most suburbs across the country.”

And what are cities doing to stop it? What is Memphis doing to stop the violent crime?

Yesterday the County Commission met to discuss three ordinances related to handling crime. Commissioner and activist Tami Sawyer was behind the push that in essence protects the perps from the police, not residents – black or white.

The mayor only knows about “reimagining policing.” Again, how does that address our rampant crime problem?

It doesn’t.

It will take a big push back from residents to stop this slide. Until we oust Democrats and liberals from office, that won’t happen.

Reimagining Police

Two weeks ago Mayor Strickland sent out an email with the heading “Reimaging Police in Memphis.”

It was a misspelling because he went on to talk about “reimagining Policing in Memphis.” Quite a difference really, but probably closer to what needs to be done in refurbishing the police image than in creating what he wants – or more accurately what one voting segment wants – than what should be done.

He wrote:

Earlier this week, I announced the creation of an Advisory Council to Reimagine Policing in Memphis, which is Phase 2 of our local efforts on police reform. Phase 1 of this process was to listen to protesters and to make immediate improvements such as adopting the “8 Can’t Wait” principles, improving CLERB, prohibiting no-knock warrants, extending the academy training by one week and adding additional cultural sensitivity training, and continuing to review policies that will reduce excessive force by our police officers. These discussions are ongoing.

The focus of this advisory council will be to work with members of the community to find substantive, realistic and measurable ways to improve community relations with law enforcement, help enhance accountability and transparency within the Memphis Police Department, and to make recommendations on our use of force policies.

Clearly the victims of crimes are not given a voice.

This popped up because of a Nextdoor entry this morning.

Someone wrote “TOO MANY CARS GETTING DAMAGED. Can someone point me in the right direction in mid-town as to a point of contact to write about the continued break-ins. I have to be frank I am up all hours and after midnight I never see police in the midtown area, especially since we have a satellite station right on Union.

Is there a Mayor of Midtown? Or should I write Memphis Mayor.

Your thoughts or ideas would greatly be appreciated!

Warm regards, (name withheld)”

The responses were insightful. Some told of numbers to call to alert the police. Everyone acknowledged there is a problem.

One comment was particularly interesting: “My guess is no hiring police officers and no one wants to become cops anymore. And folks are wanting them defunded. I’m on no one’s side, but this would be my guess”
Good guess.

And, “While crime increases the police force decreases. https://memphiscrime.org/news/memphis-police-department-staffing-where-do-we-stand/”
See previous comment.

Reimagining police and defunding them just can’t stop the crime. It doesn’t make common sense.

How long is it going to take for people to make this connection?

And how many will be hit with crime in the meantime?

Herd Immunity Is Here

Not for Covid 19. There’s another, more devious disease that has plagued the U.S. for about 50 years.

Call it mediaflu or the journavirus. The symptoms first appear around November, specifically every other year. The carriers swarm an individual, with the hope that he/she will succumb. Airwaves are filled with their broadcasting of the contagion. Whether it sticks is uncertain, but that makes the disease more and more resilient.

Lately, since Trump actually, the herd of normal Americans has become more and more immune to the illness.

Take, for instance, a recent purveyor, the Atlantic magazine. Its editor carried a story that Trump hates the military. Cable and news hosts discussed it, condemned Trump strongly and furiously. Has it infected any victims? Doesn’t appear so.

Wednesday we moved onto the Woodward book. It is trying to pass on to Americans that Trump messed up by playing down the coronavirus and that his generals want a coup against him.

Despite wall to wall coverage on this, very few Trump voters will catch this enough to succumb to Trump derangement syndrome – an offshoot of the virus. They will slough it off like the Russia hoax, Ukraine hoax, impeachment and the long list of other attacks.

There will be more such as we all know. More books and tricks are coming, just like other colds, flus and diseases at this time of year.

Scott Adams tweeted, “The latest persuasion mistake made by Democrats: Dumping all of their anti-Trump books with sketchy claims at the same approximate time. The public has “mental snowblindness” from the sameness and it becomes self-canceling.”

In other words, we become immune to their plagues.

Adam Schiff’s latest attempt – another whistleblower – is trying to make the country sick again. This time it’s Brian Murphy, who was the principal deputy under secretary in the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the DHS before he was demoted. He claims DHS chief Chad Wolf instructed him to withhold intel notifications on Russian meddling because “it made Trump look bad.”

Murphy also says Wolf told him to focus more on Iran and China, but he wouldn’t because “doing so would put the country in substantial and specific danger.”

Ukraine impeachment disease has mutated, but no one wants to go through the silly impeachment crap again. Schiff bringing this up just reminds the public how much time and money was spent on this nothingburger. There won’t be an appetite for more. People are canny enough to sniff and recognize another rotting corpse of politics.

The Democrats probably should tiptoe away from this as fast as they can. They won’t.
They always overplay their hand.
Dems and the media should go back and reread the Boy Who Cried Wolf. It didn’t end well for the boy.

Is Woodward a Deep State Asset?

Buck Sexton’s tweet sums up where we are right now:

“Perhaps the single greatest reason for journalists’ hatred of Trump is that he exposed their impotence by winning in 2016. They pretend to be objective, but think of themselves as kingmakers. The Woodward story is yet another in their endless efforts to reassert that lost.”

The media, not Joe Biden, is who Trump is running against this year.

That’s why it doesn’t matter that Biden is barely cognizant and that he has no record of achievement or solid plans for his administration. He’s a blank slate and will serve his media/globalist masters well. They will control the strings on this puppet.

From now til election day you can expect a media hit on Trump daily. Sean Davis at the Federalist writes, “The rollout of Bob Woodward’s anti-Trump book started this week. The rollout for HR McMaster’s anti-Trump book starts next week. And right after that is through, the rollout for Russian collusion hoaxer John Brennan’s deranged anti-Trump book will begin.”

No one better reveals the collusion between media and Deep State better than Bob Woodward. In fact, Deep State comes from Deep Throat, the term Woodward invented to describe the whistleblower behind the Nixon impeachment attempt.

Few know this, but Woodward started out in the military. Wikipedia says, “Woodward enrolled in Yale College with a Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) scholarship and studied history and English literature. While at Yale, Woodward joined the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and was a member of the secret society Book and Snake. After Yale, Woodward began a five-year tour of duty in the United States Navy. During his service in the Navy, Woodward served aboard the USS Wright, and was one of two officers assigned to move or handle nuclear launch codes the Wright carried in its capacity as a NECPA. At one time, he was close to Admiral Robert O. Welander, being communications officer on the USS Fox under Welander’s command.”
I have read the 1991 book Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin about Watergate. It is especially interesting because most of the people involved in it were still alive and the authors interviewed them extensively.

They discuss how Woodward left his ship in 1969, arrived in Washington and worked on the staff of Admiral Thomas Moorer, chief of Naval operations. As communications officer Woodward provided briefings and documents on national security matters to the White House.
Russ Baker writes,

Colodny and Gettlin wrote that Woodward frequently walked through the basement offices of the West Wing with documents from Admiral Moorer to General Alexander Haig, who served under Henry Kissinger—then Nixon’s National Security Advisor.

In a 2008 interview with me, Woodward categorically denied having any intelligence connections. He also denied having worked in the White House or having provided briefings there. “It’s a matter of record in the Navy what I did, what I didn’t do,” Woodward said. “And this Navy intelligence, Haig and so forth, you know, I’d be more than happy to acknowledge it if it’s true. It just isn’t. Can you accept that?”

Journalist Len Colodny, however, has produced audiotapes of interviews by his Silent Coupcoauthor Robert Gettlin with Admiral Moorer, former Defense Secretary Melvin Laird, Pentagon spokesman Jerry Friedheim and even with Woodward’s own father, Al, discussing Bob’s White House service.

At a minimum, Woodward’s entry into journalism received a valuable outside assist, according to an account provided by Harry Rosenfeld, a retired Washington Post editor, to the Saratogian newspaper in 2004: “Bob had come to us on very high recommendations from someone in the White House. He had been an intelligence officer in the Navy and had served in the Pentagon. He had not been exposed to any [major] newspaper.”

In 2008, after I spoke to Woodward, I reached Rosenfeld. He remembered that Woodward had been recommended by Paul Ignatius, the Post’s president, who previously had served as President Lyndon B. Johnson’s secretary of the Navy.

In a subsequent interview, Ignatius told me: “It’s possible that somebody asked me about him, and it’s possible that I gave him a recommendation. I don’t remember initiating anything, but I can’t say I didn’t. ”When I asked Ignatius how a top Pentagon administrator such as himself would even have known of a lowly lieutenant—Woodward’s rank back in those days—he said he did not recall.”

Yet even with this apparent high-level pressure to hire Woodward, the editors couldn’t justify putting in a complete novice. So Woodward was packed off to a Maryland-based weekly— the Montgomery County Sentinel—for a spell, then hired at the Post in September 1971. The eminent paper itself is steeped in intelligence connections. The Post’s owners, the Graham family, were aficionados of the apparatus and good friends of top spies such as longtime CIA Director Allen Dulles. Both the late publisher Philip Graham and Woodward’s boss and confidant, editor Ben Bradlee, had served in military intelligence during World War II.

As for Woodward’s initial introduction to the newspaper, nobody seems to have questioned whether a recommendation from someone in the White House would be an appropriate reason for the Post to hire a reporter. Nor does anyone from the Post appear to have put a rather obvious two and two together by noting that Woodward made quick work of bringing down the President of the United States, a feat that might have led to speculation about who at the White House had recommended Woodward in the first place—and with what motivation.

There was this, however: After Nixon aide Charles Colson met with Senator Howard Baker (the ranking Republican on the Senate Watergate Committee) and his staff—including legal counsel (and future senator) Fred Thompson—he recounted the session in a previously unpublished memo: “The CIA has been unable to determine whether Bob Woodward was employed by the Agency. The Agency claims to be having difficulty checking personnel files.” Thompson says he believes the delay merely means that they don’t want to admit Woodward was in the Agency.

Thompson wrote a lengthy memo to Baker…complaining about the CIA’s noncooperation, the fact that they were supplying material piecemeal and had been very uncooperative.”

Senator Baker sent this 1974 memo directly to CIA Director William Colby with a cover note, and within a matter of a few hours an incensed Woodward called Baker. The memo had been immediately leaked to the Post reporter. Woodward’s good connections helped generate a series of exclusive-access interviews that would result in rapidly produced bestsellers. One was Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA,1981-1987,a controversial book that relied in part, Woodward claimed, on a deathbed interview—not recorded—with former Director of Central Intelligence William Casey. (Casey’s widow and former CIA guards said the interview never took place.)

…In a multipart, front-page series by Richard Harwood in early 1967, the Post began reporting the extent to which the CIA had penetrated civil institutions not just abroad, but at home as well. As Harwood wrote, “Intellectuals, students, educators, trade unionists, journalists and professional men had to be reached directly through their private concerns [organizations].”

“Journalists” too. Woodward’s Watergate reporting partner, Bernstein, later wrote about the remarkable extent of the CIA’s penetration of newsrooms, detailing numerous examples in a 1977 Rolling Stone article. As for the Post itself, Bernstein wrote: “When Newsweek was purchased by the Washington Post Company, publisher Philip L. Graham was informed by Agency officials that the CIA occasionally used the magazine for cover purposes, according to CIA sources. ‘It was widely known that Phil Graham was somebody you could get help from,’ said a former deputy director of the Agency. Some Newsweek correspondents and stringers continued to maintain covert ties with the Agency into the 1970s,CIA sources said.

Interesting isn’t it? Interesting, too, is that Woodward’s Deep Throat was Mark Felt, the FBI executive who had wanted to take over that institution, but was spurned by Nixon. Wouldn’t an FBI person tip off an FBI asset?

Baker continues:

Amazingly, despite the overwhelming public sense that Nixon was somehow “behind” the scandals collectively referred to as Watergate, virtually no evidence ever emerged of Nixon’s involvement or prior knowledge, besides agreeing to bad advice on how to handle the affair once it became public through leaks via Woodward and others. Meanwhile, the collection of individuals whose “inside” testimony helped sink Nixon had, like Woodward, a history with military or civilian intelligence operations.

So let’s summarize: Young Bob Woodward, Naval intelligence officer, gets sent to work in the Nixon White House while still on military duty. Then, with no journalistic credentials to speak of and with a boost from White House staffers, he lands a job at the Washington Post. Not long thereafter he starts to take down Richard Nixon. Meanwhile, inside the White House, Woodward’s military bosses are running a spy ring that is monitoring Nixon and Kissinger’s secret negotiations with America’s enemies (China, the Soviet Union, etc.), stealing documents and funneling them back to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They are then leaked to columnist Jack Anderson and others in the press.

That portrait clashes, of course, with the iconic Woodward of legend—so it takes a while for this notion to settle in the mind. But there’s more. Did you know there was really no “Deep Throat,” that the W. Mark Felt story was conjured up as yet another layer of cover in what became a daisy chain of disinformation? Did you know that Richard Nixon was loathed and feared by the military brass, that they and their allies were desperate to get him out and halt his rapprochement with the Communists? Or that a bunch of operatives with direct or indirect CIA/military connections—from E. Howard Hunt to Alexander Butterfield to John Dean—wormed their way into key White House posts and started up the Keystone Kops operations that would be laid at Nixon’s Oval Office door? Or that it was the CIA-connected Butterfield, for example, who revealed the secret Oval Office audio taping system whose carefully selected and artfully presented excerpts cooked Nixon’s goose?

Len Colodny supposedly killed himself.

Remember, these people will do anything, say anything, propose anything to keep their power and the status quo. Woodward is one of them, perhaps inserted to keep presidents in check for their unelected agenda.

Scary stuff.

How Obama Corrupted Our Military

The recent Atlantic article that accused Trump of attacking the military, calling them cowards and losers, did not happen in a vacuum. Neither did the accusation that Trump would not leave the White House if he lost, requiring military to evict him.

Nor did this: Military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. Michael Anton reported in his article, The Coming Coup: “They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: ‘Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.’”

These show a military out of the control of the Commander in Chief. Why would this happen when Trump so avidly supports them?

Bookworm room writes that “Obama seeded the Pentagon with Deep Staters who have more reverence for permanent power than they do for the Constitution. After all, Trump, by making peace in the Middle East and in the Balkans, and by refusing to engage in wars that don’t directly benefit America, is a threat to these officers — and that’s despite the fact the Trump has built up the military like crazy. Once the military’s built up, the retired officers no longer have well-paid sinecures in the military-industrial complex and the active-duty officers have fewer opportunities for promotion. For them, Trump’s a career killer.”

So once again, it boils down to money and power.
We get that the brass has tarnished, but how did Obama destroy the American soldier himself?
Bookworm illuminates:

They turned the military into a social justice experiment, that went far beyond ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and, instead, allowing gay troops to serve openly. In the new order, the military starting celebrating and elevating people like “Harpy Daniels“:

Years before he became a yeoman 3rd class in the United States Navy, Joshua Kelley was entertaining exuberant crowds under his drag name, “Harpy Daniels.”

The 24-year-old Berwick, Pennsylvania native, who currently serves as an administrative supervisor aboard the forward-deployed aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, brought Harpy along for the ride when he decided to join the Navy in February 2016, a choice he said was heavily inspired by his father.

Now, despite the furious operational tempo the Navy demands of its personnel, Kelley manages to find time to perform as Harpy Daniels on ship during MWR-sanctioned events designed to boost morale and provide sailors a much-needed break from daily burdens. He even took home a $1,000 Navy Exchange card for a second place finish in a recent lip sync competition.

Within his first year in the Navy, Kelley was voted to be the president of Strike Fighter Squadron 115′s Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions, became the public affairs officer for the carrier Reagan’s Gay, Lesbian and Supporting Sailors association, was named VFA-115′s Blue Jacket of the Year and earned his first Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal, a Navy release said.

But this wasn’t a one off event.

There were “cross dressing exercises at Arizona State’s Army ROTC during the Obama-Biden years:

“Blisters, sweat and perhaps a little bit of blood was the sight at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex on Monday, when the men and women of ASU Army ROTC braved the Arizona heat to run in fabulous (and some not-so-fabulous) heels to raise awareness of sexual assault… ASU Army ROTC program hosted the event, ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,’ which consisted of students in the ROTC program wearing heels and running 1.26 miles as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.”

Additionally, “And let’s not forget that the military, just like other parts of the permanent Deep State, told its troops that MAGA stands for white supremacy. The rot runs very deep. Who cares about destroying unit cohesion by pitting against each other the different races within a remarkably well-segregated military? It’s more important to defeat Trump.”

Obama had 8 years to attempt to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

Unfortunately, it continues. The generals are carrying out a war again. This time it’s against Trump – and us.

Signing into Madness

You see them everywhere in Midtown. They are as common and frequent as a Joe Biden blunder,

although BLM signs have recently given them competition. (Alas, for these people, they won’t save them if true believers come knocking on their white liberal doors.)

I never fail to marvel at the amazing degree of smugness the home owner must feel when he/she/cis hammers this in the front yard.The degree of self satisfaction must be off the charts.

Deluded is what comes to mind when I spot one and I spot a lot of them on my block and throughout the neighborhood. What a bunch of brain washed, closed minded people who spurn basic logic and reality! It is truly an exercise in patience and Christian love of your enemy to endure them.

A version of them happens on Nextdoor where anyone who strays from this philosophy is tongue lashed, branded a racist and then deleted.

At American Thinker Christopher Skeet breaks down each line of the sign:

Shortly after Trump was elected president, “HATE HAS NO HOME HERE” (HHNHH) yard signs began adorning the minority-manicured lawns of white-collar, white-skinned liberals. You’ve seen the sign. Its message is translated into multiple languages, which is meant to broadcast a globalist diversity of sorts by those who speak not only just English, but that sniffy dialect molded within the narrow confines of a university pedigree loftier than junior college but conspicuously short of Ivy League. You can all but hear them finish their Starbucks order with that irritating raised inflection on the last syllable.

The underlying message of the HHNHH yard sign is two-fold. First, it’s virtue signaling in its most tawdry form. Yard signs announcing “POVERTY IS BAD” and “I SUPPORT CURING CANCER” would ring just as hollow. Sorry, but you don’t get a cookie for broadcasting to the world that you oppose hate. Most people do, and their daily actions are sufficient proof thereof. A lion doesn’t need to convince people it’s a lion.

Second, the HHNHH yard sign alludes that a home which opposes President Trump is axiomatically hate-free, and, by deductive logic, a home which supports President Trump categorically welcomes hate with open arms. The sign smugly implies, “I’m a good person, and it’s a shame that you’re not.” This insinuation might not rise to the level of hate, but it certainly sinks to the level of arrogance, condescension, and sweeping judgment.

But over time the HHNHH yard signs faded along with the “I’m With Her” bumper stickers. The yard sign prophets needed something new, something snarkier, with which to impress their woke comrades and irritate the handyman who lives on the street’s only single story home. So a new yard sign was handed out that reads like a manifesto. The sign blares loudly “WE BELIEVE:”, which is followed by (in differing order, and with slightly altered wording, depending on the sign) BLACK LIVES MATTER; NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL; WOMEN’S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS; LOVE IS LOVE; SCIENCE IS REAL; and KINDNESS IS EVERYTHING.

They really upped the ante, didn’t they?

The first thought conservatives have looking at this sign is that they agree with every statement on it. But the purpose of the sign is not to find common ground across the political spectrum, but to further drive a wedge. The purpose of the sign is to insist that these statements are true only within the narrow ideological limits of the sign owner’s worldview. If you disagree with the yard sign prophets on any policy point, then, in their minds, you disagree with the statements themselves.

Let’s break it down by statement:

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Aside from progressive mayors, BLM rioters, and Dylan Roof, one is hard-pressed to find Americans of any political persuasion who behave like black lives don’t matter. In fact, conservatives take this statement to the next logical steps. Black lives, White lives and Hispanic lives matter. Unborn lives matter and police lives matter.

But by declaring BLACK LIVES MATTER, they are concerned only with black people who have been shot by police. The justification for the shooting, or the lack thereof, or any other pertinent fact of a specific case, does not factor into their reasoning. The black victim is merely a prop, brutishly exploited to peddle an anti-police narrative.

But don’t posit to a yard sign prophet any of these seemingly a priori statements without first donning a face shield, because spittle will most definitely fly. By insisting that all lives matter rather than just those of a single race, you are somehow the racist. Now that’s a trick that would leave even Houdini scratching his head.

NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL

Who is saying that humans are illegal? It’s a conservative idea that human beings not only have a legal right to peacefully exist to pursue their happiness, but should be legally protected at all stages of life, at all income levels, and in every neighborhood. What this statement is attacking is the concept of illegal immigration. But a person’s immigration status is very different from their right to exist, as the yard sign prophets surely know. That is why they obfuscate the argument with underhanded statements like this. Those who scream NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL do so from the safety of their alarmed homes and gated communities, which serve essentially the same purpose as does a border wall.

WOMEN’S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS

Who is saying they aren’t? Certainly not conservatives, for whom human rights (be they for women, gays, ethnic or religious minorities) aren’t conveniently ignored when the offending societies are non-Western. There are plenty who do treat women like animals and slaves, and who use their culture and religion as an excuse to do so. And which political party courts these misogynists and defends them against “phobic” criticisms?

The purpose of this statement isn’t to promote actual equality into cultures for whom the concept of women’s rights is tantamount to heresy. The statement is abortion advocacy, pure and simple, and it reflects the most threadbare ad hominem attack in American politics, i.e. if you oppose abortion, you oppose women. This would be news to Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Jane Addams, and other historical dreadnoughts opposed to abortion, in whose mighty wakes meander the empty vessels of contemporary “feminism.”

LOVE IS LOVE

Sure. And broccoli is broccoli. The point of this hackneyed statement is not a defense of “love,” in the sense of a deep and selfless affection from one person to another. The purpose is to transpose the definition of marriage with that of love, i.e. if you don’t agree with the definition of marriage as progressives do, then you are opposed to “love.” If you disagree with the institution of gay marriage yet harbor no animosity whatsoever towards the gay community, it matters not. You are a hateful bigot whose business must be shut down and whose social life must be cancelled.

This hijacking of “love” as understood by the advocacy of non-traditional marriage in the Western sense is, like the advocacy of “women’s rights,” oddly ambiguous when the boundaries of acceptable marriage expand in directions seemingly at odds with progressivism. The LOVE IS LOVE windbags are uncharacteristically quiet about the legal codes in certain non-Western cultures which allow one man to have (own) multiple wives. Likewise, they are quiet about speaking out against (or for) definitions of “love” and marriage as insisted upon by the likes of NAMBLA. Whatever doesn’t fit the narrative is ignored.

SCIENCE IS REAL

Science is a process, a methodology employed to determine empirical facts and laws by which we can better understand the world around us. What science is never is a set of permanently settled, rigid theories that remain immovable despite the ebb and flow of conflicting evidence. SCIENCE IS REAL was just as true when we “knew” the Earth was flat as when we discovered it was round. What changed was not the science, but the evidence.

The SCIENCE IS REAL statement is a transparent reference to global warming, and global warming only. The statement is meant to ridicule “climate deniers”, i.e. those who “deny” the “settled science” that not only is the Earth warming at logarithmically catastrophic rates, but that mankind (particular Western man) is solely responsible. These armchair Einsteins have little time for the sciences of biology, genetics, and economics because they don’t conform to the narrative.

One problem with the global warming debate is that it, in its current metamorphosis, is far too politicized from which to derive much objective substance. The vast majority of partisans on both sides understand very little of the actual science, and instead rely on either conspiracy theories or internet searches for whichever article or chart is tailored to fit their particular bias.

Since I fall into this category of blissful ignorance, I’m in no position to comment on the science one way or another, though I will say this. Reasonable skepticism is not anti-scientific, especially when the apocalypse peddlers are batting 0.000 with regards to their predictions ever actually occurring. I’ll also say that any proposal that punishes Western democracies (who do the most to lower emissions) while subsidizing brutal dictatorships (who do the least) is not a serious solution, but rather a massive transfer of wealth and power unconvincingly cloaked as environmentalism. Pollution from Chinese smokestacks destroys the planet just as much as pollution from American smokestacks. This isn’t racism, this is the science you allegedly support.

KINDNESS IS EVERYTHING

This statement can be found in all shapes and sizes in the millennial-old texts of most world religions, but one would struggle to find anything remotely close in the atheistic fanaticism of Karl Marx, Che Guevarra, or Richard Dawkins. For cultural icons like Bill Maher, Chelsea Handler, and Michael Moore, kindness is more an impediment than a virtue, as are the empathy and tolerance that accompany it. Our city streets are overflowing with black-masked kindness, and it’ll bash you across the head with a brick if your own kindness is found wanting.

Like its HHNHH predecessor, the WE BELIEVE yard sign isn’t an argument, an ideology, or a philosophy. It isn’t a set of principles or tenets of a faith. It has no depth, no complexity, and no animation. It’s a regurgitation of drive-by gotcha-isms, dutifully parroted with overconfident arrogance and unearned righteousness by those who haven’t thought to the next sentence.

The WE BELIEVE statements are easily dissectible, and should never be allowed to fester unchallenged for the sake of avoiding unpleasant conversation. The yard sign is designed to elicit shame in its opponents, but there is nothing shameful and everything noble in resisting what Solzhenitsyn called “the mechanical propaganda of dead ideas”. You won’t make a dent, but they should know that neither did they.

When Trump is reelected expect a new slew of these to pop up.

Maybe they’re a sign that we’re winning.

Analyst Sees Trump Win

With assaults on Republicans/conservatives who support Trump coming on all sides – sports, TV shows, TV News, newspapers, magazines and every other part of everyday American life – it is easy to get disheartened about the election.

Add to that the Democrats’ insistence on mail in and other vote fraud, plus the riots and BLM signs everywhere, and it’s upsetting.

Turn it off and tune it out. Whatever you have to do to maintain your equilibrium, do it. Pray, also.
Don’t let despair wash you away.

There are many reasons for optimism.

A former CIA intelligence analyst, Ron Aledo, shares reasons why Trump will be victorious November 3rd.

Here’s what he wrote:

As former senior intelligence analyst (ctr) for CIA/DIA I estimate with high confidence (85%+) that Donald Trump will win the November 2020 elections.

I base my analysis in the following:

–1. The Manchurian Candidate/ End of the world Apocalypses candidate cannot be used against Trump this year. It was used against him back in October/November 2016 and did not work. It only can be used once. The Republicans also used that technique against Obama back in October/November 2008. The Manchurian candidate/End of the World candidate strategy means that if a X candidate wins, that candidate will destroy the country and it is going to be the end of the world. Trump demonstrated that he did not destroy the country nor the world by winning back in 2016. People knows now the world will not end if he wins in 2020. That is why the Republicans could not use this technique against Obama in 2012 and why the Democrats cannot use it against Trump now in 2020. IT CAN ONLY BE USED ONCE.

–2. Trump demonstrated that his economic policies worked very well. Back in February 2020, just before the China virus, the economy was in great shape. Unemployment was very low at about 3.5%. Wall Street, the Dow, etc. were doing great back in February. A big amount of the population of the US wants to go back to the economy of February 2020. Trump is promising that and a fast recovery from the China Virus.

–3. The Reagan Democrats are firmly behind Trump and they are the most decisive voter group in the Rust Belt/Mid-West key battleground states, the ones that usually decide the Presidential elections. The Reagan Democrats are the blue collar/factory workers of the industrial belt (Rust Belt) that are natural Democratic Party voters due to economic reasons but abandoned their Party to vote for Reagan back in the 80s. They went back to the Democratic Party after Reagan retired, but moved back to the Republican Party in 2016 because of Trump. They are still firmly behind Trump. The Reagan Democrats are natural cultural Republican voters as most of the them are religious, go to Church, pray often, are mostly pro-Gun and Pro Second Amendment, are Anti Big City Elitists (identify themselves as the Deplorables so much mocked and rejected by the big city liberal elitists), pro Boxing and Pro MMA, hunters, NACAR, etc., etc. Trump is their champion as he did modify or reject Globalist Free Trade agreements that did not take in consideration moving industrial jobs from the US to Mexico or China. Trump, by fighting those Globalist Free Trade agreements and by pushing for the return of industrial jobs back to the US was able to keep the loyalty and support of the Reagan Democrats. They are the most important voter group as usually they decide the “Swing” states. (In the US the religious Bible Belt of the South always vote Republican, the liberal left wing secularist Coast states and big cities always vote Democrat, but the Mid-West industrial states are “ Swing” states that can vote for any given Party on any given election. This make them the Key Decisive states for Presidential elections).

–4. The China Virus (Coronavirus) did not kill Trump possibilities for re election as Trump and his team are pushing very clearly that China is to blame for not reporting human to human transmission back in February/March 2020 and by allowing dozens of thousands of people to travel to the US, Europe, etc. back in early 2020 to infect the whole world.

Trump is defending his coronavirus response by pointing that all medical experts estimated that over 2.1 million would die from the virus in the US but that now after his response less than 200,000 will die, which means more than 1.9 million people SAVED from the original estimates.

Trump points out that more than 100,000 ventilators were made in the US under his administration and that by December 2020 the total number will be 200,000. Trump also points that the US is pushing for accelerated research for both a vaccine and a treatment that will come before the end of 2020. Additionally Trump points as high points the mobilization of the military DoD logistics for Corona response, the total mobilization of FEMA/DHS, the travel ban from China that Biden opposed, and the Federal Industrial Production order he pushed to increase PPE production and ventilators, and the sending of the 2 military hospital Navy Ships to New York and the West Coast.

–5. The Black Lives Matter protests turned into rioting, looting and violence and that have been a strong set back for the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party leaders spent months supporting the protests that turned into riots and violence. The leaders of the Democratic Party did not openly supported Police/Law Enforcement in general and tried to make happy their left wing voter base, Antifa, Bernie Sander´s socialists millennials, etc.

Now the protests are pushing the average “John Doe”, the average American from “Main Street” into supporting Trump’s strong pro Law and Order position. There are currently record Gun sales in the US a strong indication that people is generally scared that the riots and violence will target their towns. The fact that the protest now look like strong Cultural Marxism and is trying to destroy Patriotic symbols and heroes like Washington, Jefferson, Columbus, etc., etc.,. etc. causes strong rejection from the average Silent Majority American in “Main Street”. Biden looks to them like a senile weak old man, manipulated and directed his handlers/puppeteers of the far left. Trumps look like a strong pro Police and Law Enforcement leader not afraid to send Federal Law Enforcement agents to keep the rioters under control. Just like the 68 riots strongly helped Nixon, today’s riots are strongly helping Trump with the average middle class suburban American from Main Street.

–6. The Democratic Party moved too much to the left. Instead of remaining like a Center-Left liberal party the it moved to the strong radical left for several reasons: influence of the Me too movement, Hollywood propaganda movies, Marxist/strong left wing influence of the average University professor, etc. Also the Party wanted to keep happy and within the Party the base of Socialist Bernie Sanders, mostly young university students, Marxists, “Scientific Atheists” , etc. The Party is defending the radical idea of Late Term abortion (infanticide), transgender ideology, secularism, etc. The Party rejects objections from parents that don’t want men using their daughter’s bathrooms and don’t want to see men competing against girls in Olympic sports. Now those parents are promoting ¨hate¨ according to the party.

The Party strongly positioned itself against police/ local Law Enforcement officers, Border Patrol, ICE Law Enforcement officers and remained silent against mobs that destroyed Columbus status in Baltimore, want to remove Washington status, etc., etc. The strong influence of Socialist Bernie Sanders, left wing activists Alejandra Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib are clearly behind as handlers and puppeteers of the so called “moderate” Biden, a so called “catholic” that supports abortion, and was denied holy communion because of his position in this extremely important issue. The average non-ideological American, patriotic, pro-military, pro-gun, religious, is a lot more scared of the Antifa and radical left than Trump’s strong Patriotic right wing policies. By moving the Party’s base to the hard extreme left, the Party is rejecting a good amount of the average Main Street American.

–7. The Coronavirus social-political side effects are helping Trump. In the US the tradition of Live Free or Die, freedom and libertarian ideology (based on modifications of Von Mises and the Austrian School of economics) have a strong presence. With the Coronavirus as excuse, the Democrats at the local level pushed for strong state control as in mandatory face masks, mandatory closing of small business, bars, restaurants, parks, beaches, etc., strong supporters of online classes instead of physical school classes, and enforcement of quasi house confinement. By the contrary Trump pushed for the fast reopening of bars, restaurants, etc., for physical school presence, reopening of the economy. Pushing for strong State control is now hurting the Democratic Party. Most average Americans reject strong State control as in basic freedom of movement, opening small businesses, etc. Those consider that as tyranny. While most of the White Collar elites in liberal coast cities might support these policies from the Democratic Party, by the contrary most Average Americans from Main street reject them. As an example: a Texas Woman who opened her beauty parlor against the orders of the left wing City of Houston, was arrested for it and sent to jail for 7 days by a left wing judge, is now running for the Texas State Senate with very strong support from conservatives and the average, freedom loving Main Street American. The strong state control pushed by the Democrats is being rejected by a large segment of the population.

For all these reasons I estimate with high confidence (85%+) that Donald Trump will win the November 2020 Presidential elections.
