A secretive three-day conference where big money liberal donors are plotting the next steps of the "resistance" will be headlined by Friday speeches by billionaire George Soros and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi...


GEORGE SOROS IS KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT SECRET MEETING OF THE DEMOCRACY ALLIANCE ‘RESISTANCE’ MOVEMENT The agenda for the meeting, titled "Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future," lays out three full days of events culminating in a Friday night dinner headlined by Pelosi. A few hours earlier guests can attend "A Talk with George Soros," who will be introduced with a "special videotaped message" by Democratic senator Kamala Harris (Calif.). george-soros-secret-meeting-democracy-alliance-resistance-movement-anti-trump by Geoffrey Grider November 18, 2017 A SECRETIVE THREE-DAY CONFERENCE WHERE BIG MONEY LIBERAL DONORS ARE PLOTTING THE NEXT STEPS OF THE “RESISTANCE” WILL BE HEADLINED BY FRIDAY SPEECHES BY BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS AND DEMOCRATIC HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI, ACCORDING TO INTERNAL DOCUMENTS OBTAINED BY THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON. EDITOR’S NOTE: Following the Democrats stunning loss to Donald Trump in 2016, George Soros with his endless billions has stepped up to assume control of the Democratic Party. He has a long and inglorious history of stirring up dissent within foreign governments, manipulating currencies, and fomenting and funding race riots here in America. Click here to sign a petition calling on the Trump administration to revoke Soros’ citizenship and shut down his anti-government agitator groups. The Democracy Alliance, a donor club of deep-pocketed liberal donors that each pledge to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups, descended on California’s posh La Costa Resort on Wednesday morning for its fall donor summit. The group continued its tradition of secrecy, promising all members and guests of the summit their participation would “remain confidential.” The first page of the conference agenda, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and can be viewed in its entirety here, lays out “participation guidelines,” explaining that the Democracy Alliance is a “safe place” for donors and activists to meet. Guests are instructed not to share members’ names with the press and not to post to any social media sites, to contact Democracy Alliance if “the media or a blogger” contacts them, and to “refrain from leaving sensitive materials out where others may find them.” This latter directive was ignored. THE AGENDA FOR THE MEETING, TITLED “BEYOND #RESISTANCE: RECLAIMING OUR PROGRESSIVE FUTURE,” LAYS OUT THREE FULL DAYS OF EVENTS CULMINATING IN A FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER HEADLINED BY PELOSI. A few hours earlier guests can attend “A Talk with George Soros,” who will be introduced with a “special videotaped message” by Democratic senator Kamala Harris (Calif.). All of the events are scheduled to take place at the La Costa Resort, which features 17 tennis courtsof both clay and hard surfaces including one with 1,000 seats for spectators, 36 holes of golf on the Legends Course and the Champions Course, an array of pools including three hot tubs that overlooksaid golf courses, a spa building, and the Deepak Chopra Center, where guests can do yoga or receive mind-body medical consultations. Pelosi and Harris are not the only two politicians to have a presence at the swanky conference—Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf (D.) held a Thursday event on his reelection efforts, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) will speak on Friday about “Russian interference in the 2016 election,” and Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D., Minn.), who chairs the DCCC, will attend a “festive brunch” on Saturday morning. Also making a “special appearance” on Friday will be Virginia’s governor-elect Ralph Northam. The agenda also lists “special guests” at the conference, some more famous than others. Attendees showcased in the agenda range from failed California politician Sandra Fluke to liberal CNN contributor Van Jones to Center for American Progress CEO Neera Tanden. JONES WAS HEADLINING A THURSDAY DINNER ON “GOING OUTSIDE THE BUBBLE” AND LEARNING FROM TRUMP VOTERS. Not all events and prominent guests are listed in the conference agenda. Not listed, for example, was a Thursday night happy hour hosted by Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, who was spotted in attendance. Also not listed as a special guest at the conference was David Brock, who checked in early Wednesday afternoon and has made himself highly visible at La Costa—slowly strolling around the sprawling property and staying up at the hotel bar till past midnight. Brock is not a “partner” of Democracy Alliance—in fact, he has worked to create his own liberal donor network—but groups he controls, such as Media Matters for America, are among the many groups Democracy Alliance directs funding to. Not listed in the agenda or spotted at the resort has been billionaire Tom Steyer, one of Democracy Alliance’s most prominent members in the past. Pelosi publicly reprimanded Steyer earlier this month for running a $10 million ad calling for President Trump’s impeachment. Also not listed in the Democracy Alliance program was a meeting held by Patriotic Millionaires, who gave a Thursday morning briefing on the “tax fight” and “what is at stake.” The briefing was delivered by Larry Mishel of Americans for Tax Fairness, Thea Lee of Economic Policy Institute, and Jacob Leibenluft, a member of the Obama administration’s National Economic Council who is now with the Centeron Budget and Policy Priorities. Not all meetings at the conference are open to all guests. Some meetings are “by invitation only,” “for prospective partners only,” or for “partners only.” Right before Pelosi’s speech, for example, will be a “Partners only” forum dedicated to “committing resources.” The Democracy Alliance has never made its commitment decisions available to the public. Democracy Alliance president Gara LaMarche wrote in a letter to attendees included in the agenda that President Trump’s November victory was “the most cataclysmic election of modern history.” source

Red Fridays... !


Will you give this to my Daddy? As a Company, Southwest Airlines is going to support 'Red Fridays'. Last week I was in Atlanta , Georgia attending a conference. While I was in the airport returning home, I heard several people behind me beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen. Moving through the terminal was a group of soldiers in their camos. As they began heading to their gate, everyone (well almost everyone) was abruptly to their feet with their hands waving and cheering. When I saw the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and cheered for, it hit me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only red-blooded American who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families. Of course, I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday for us so we can go to school, work and home without fear or reprisal. Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men and women, a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old, ran up to one of the male soldiers. He kneeled down and said 'hi.' The little girl then asked him if he would give something to her daddy for her. The young soldier, who didn't look any older than maybe 22 himself, said he would try and what did she want to give to her Daddy. Then suddenly the little girl grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the biggest hug she could muster and then kissed him on the cheek. The mother of the little girl, who said her daughter's name was Courtney, told the young soldier that her husband was a Marine and had been in Iraq for 11 months now. As the mom was explaining how much her daughter Courtney missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up. When this temporarily single mom was done explaining her situation, all of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second. Then one of the other servicemen pulled out a military-looking walkie-talkie. They started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it.. After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to Courtney, bent down and said this to her, 'I spoke to your daddy and he told me to give this to you.' He then hugged this little girl that he had just met and gave her a kiss on the cheek. He finished by saying 'your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and he is coming home very soon.' The mom at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young soldier stood to his feet, he saluted Courtney and her mom. I was standing no more than 6 feet away from this entire event. As the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people resumed their applause. As I stood there applauding and looked around, there were very few dry eyes, including my own. That young soldier in one last act of selflessness, turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear rolling down his cheek. We need to remember everyday all of our soldiers and their families and thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it's good to be an American. RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the 'silent majority'. We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or over-bearing. We get no liberal media coverage on TV, to reflect our message or our opinions. Many American, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of Americans supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday -and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that.. Every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar will wear something red. By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family. It will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once 'silent' majority is on their side more than ever; certainly more than the media lets on. The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is...We need your support and your prayers. Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and wear something red every Friday. IF YOU AGREE -- THEN SEND THIS ON.
IF YOU COULDN'T CARE LESS THEN HIT THE DELETE BUTTON --- IT IS YOUR CHOICE. I don't know if you've seen this, but I couldn't delete it.. WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, ONLY BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED---- SO WEAR RED! --- MAY GOD HELP AMERICA TO BECOME ONE NATION, UNDER GOD. __________________________ I checked it out. Southwest does support the troops with red -Every day-

Soeren Kern: A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Germany: October 2017 Judith Bergman: New York City Submits to Islam...


In this mailing: Soeren Kern: A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Germany: October 2017 Judith Bergman: New York City Submits to Islam A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Germany: October 2017 by Soeren Kern • November 7, 2017 at 5:00 am Thieves broke into an immigration office in the Moabit district of Berlin and stole up to 20,000 blank passports and other immigration documents, as well as official stamps and seals The Federal Prosecutor's Office opened more than 900 terrorism cases during the first nine months of 2017. Of those cases, more than 800 involved Islamists. Violent crime, including murder, rape and physical assault, is running rampant in German asylum shelters, according to an intelligence report leaked to the newspaper Bild. German authorities, who appear powerless to stem the rising tide of violence, justified their failure to inform the public about the scale of the problem by citing the privacy rights of the criminal offenders. On October 8, German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed to cap the number of refugees Germany accepts each year to 200,000. Pictured: Merkel in December 2014. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images) October 1. The Network Enforcement Act (Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz, NetzDG) — also known as the Facebook law — entered into force. The measure requires social media platforms with more than two million users to remove "blatantly illegal" hate speech within 24 hours, and less obviously illegal content within seven days, or face fines of up to €50 million ($58 million). Critics argue that the definition of hate speech is ambiguous and subjective and that the new law is a threat to online free speech. The German government plans to apply the law more widely — including to content on social media networks of any size, according to Der Spiegel. Continue Reading Article New York City Submits to Islam by Judith Bergman • November 7, 2017 at 4:30 am The media began to paint Muslims as the victims of Saipov's attack -- not the dead and the wounded victims of the terrorist. "As a Muslim committed to fighting Islamism, I appeal to you: The need for strong surveillance of Muslim communities in the West has never been greater.... Counterterrorism experts and politicians must know that far from being Islamophobic, the scrutiny is supported by Islam.... Nations seasoned in combating Islamism -- most recently, Egypt.... have identified mosques as critical nerve centers for Islamism. Mosques in Egypt, for example, are monitored by the state....Islam itself demands no less." — Dr. Qanta Ahmed, Muslim physician, Newsday. New York has adopted, in its entirety, the European response to Islamic terrorism: Appeasement and genuflection to Islam. Historically, such behavior was required by non-Muslim citizens of Islamic states, known as dhimmis, in exchange for "protection". The question is why American citizens, who live in the United States and not in an Islamic state, feel obliged to submit to Islam? Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a British Muslim, recently wrote: "The need for strong surveillance of Muslim communities in the West has never been greater.... From inside the communities where Islamists hide, we can deter Islamism.... the state must outlaw Islamist groups." (Image source: Fox News video screenshot) On October 31, Sayfullo Saipov, a Muslim immigrant from Uzbekistan, shouted, "Allahu Akbar!" ("Allah is the greatest!") as he rammed his rented truck into 20 people in downtown Manhattan, killing eight and wounding twelve more. The truck-ramming attack, a terrorist tactic popularized by jihadists in Israel, then Europe, was the deadliest terror attack in New York since September 11, 2001. The response to Saipov's attack from New York City officials, as well as the US media, displays the extent to which officials have submitted to Islamic terrorism since then, and how unquestioningly the mainstream media backs this capitulation. Americans should be extremely worried. NY Deputy Police Commissioner John Miller said after the attack: Continue Reading Article

27 Easy Ways to Secure Your Home 🏡...Protect Your Loved Ones!


27 Easy Ways to Secure Your Home Posted by: Kyle Lemmon Leave a comment Updated: October 13, 2017 man installing outdoor security cameraPeople ask me all the time what they can do to better protect their homes. They all have different priorities and budgets, so I’ve compiled a list of home security tips for as many scenarios as possible. Here’s a list of the top 27 security tips to protect your home. 🔐 = Highest-priority actions 1. Update or change your locks installing door lockMost people don’t think about changing the locks when they move into a new home or apartment. It’s impossible to know who had keys to your home before you moved in. Changing your locks is one of the easiest ways to add a little extra security to your new place and to make sure that there aren’t any rogue keys out there somewhere. 2. Get a monitored security system 🔐 Professionally monitored security systems offer the absolute best protection for your home. If someone tries to break in, a professionally monitored system will trigger an alarm, notify you via text, email, or direct call, and dispatch authorities to your home if need be. Most professionally monitored systems charge a monthly monitoring fee, but plenty of home security companies offer multiple packages for different budgets. Check out some of the top recommend home security systems to get a better idea of what to expect. 3. Make it look like you’re home—even when you’re not 🔐 An empty home makes for an easier target. You can give the appearance that you’re home—even when you’re not—by using automatic timers for lights, postponing your mail and newspaper delivery, and asking a neighbor to park their car in your driveway while you’re away. 4. Hide exposed wiring Most modern security systems use wireless technology, but if you have a security system or camera with exposed wiring, a burglar could easily cut a wire and deactivate that portion of your system. Make sure to hide any wires that connect your security devices to each other. 5. Keep track of your keys Hiding a spare key under the doormat doesn’t work like it used to. Instead, give a spare key to a neighbor or family member you trust, or better yet, get a digital door lock with a combination code. 6. Use outdoor lighting 🔐 flood lights outside of houseGood exterior lighting not only gives the appearance that someone’s home, but also uncovers and reduces potential hiding spots for burglars and intruders. A good outdoor light with motion activation and high lumens adds extra security to your home for not a lot of money. 7. Dead bolt your exterior doors 🔐 The price of a heavy-duty dead bolt lock is a whole lot less than the average cost of a home break-in ($2,119). It’s an easy, inexpensive way to add some security to your home. 8. Reinforce your sliding door 🔐 Sliding doors often go overlooked by many homeowners when they’re adding extra security to their home. A sliding door is one of the first places a burglar will try to enter. These doors are quiet and usually on a side of the house that’s concealed from view. Put a metal rod or one-inch wooden dowel in your sliding door track to help reinforce your sliding door. 9. Upgrade and maintain exterior doors Make sure you inspect and upgrade exterior doors and doorframes. Doorframes especially see a lot of wear and tear and are constantly exposed to all kinds of weather. Replace old or rotting doorframes with solid wood and make sure all your exterior doors are solid core or heavy-duty metal. 10. Secure your windows 🔐 locking windows with keySurvey your home and secure any accessible windows—ground-level windows, window wells, upper windows near trees or other climbable structures—with extra security measures. Put a dowel in the window track, cover window wells with grates, and make sure locks remain out of reach from open or cracked windows. 11. Fix faulty alarms False alarms or broken alarms that sound frequently tend to get ignored by neighbors and even you, the owner, after too long. Fix faulty alarms as soon as possible, and notify your neighbors of the issue so when an alarm goes off for real, it won’t get ignored. 12. Trim trees and shrubs outside your home 🔐 Overgrown bushes, trees, and other landscaping elements create convenient places for would-be intruders to hide out. By keeping your trees and shrubs trimmed, especially those right outside windows or other entrances, you can cut down on bad-guy hiding spots. 13. Ask for credentials from service providers entering your home showing credentials at door Posing as an installer, repairman, or other service provider is a common tactic used by someone scouting out your home for a future break-in. Make sure to ask for identification and work-order credentials before letting anyone you don’t know into your home. 14. Get a dog (or pretend to have one) dog on couch with coupleBurglars hate dogs because they’re noisy and protective—and they have teeth. If you’re not a dog person, you can always fake it and put up a Beware of Dog sign. It’s a great way to discourage potential intruders from entering your home. 15. Know your neighbors Something as simple as befriending your neighbors has a lot of security advantages. Neighbors can watch out for your home when you’re away. They can act as an extra set of eyes for suspicious activity in your neighborhood and let you know if anything unusual happens in or around your home. Get to know your neighbors so you can have each other’s backs. 16. Lock up ladders and other tools Ladders and tools that get left out, even for one night, present an easy opportunity for a break-in or theft. A ladder will give access to second floor windows that would normally be hard to reach, and tools can be used to pry open doors, windows, or locks. It’s better to lock it all away in the garage or shed. 17. Install an outdoor security camera 🔐 man installing outdoor security cameraOutdoor security cameras allow you to monitor outdoor activity. You can check live footage and record motion-activated activity so you can keep a record of anyone coming and going. Just having an outdoor camera installed acts as a deterrent as well. If burglars notice a camera, they’re more likely to move on to the next house. 18. Protect your porch with a doorbell camera A doorbell camera offers several excellent benefits that you just don’t get with a regular setup. It protects your porch and packages, lets you know who’s coming and going, and allows you to communicate with visitors remotely. Most doorbells attach to existing doorbell wiring and are easy to install yourself. 19. Get a home safe A good home safe can serve as a last line of defense against unpredictable threats like flooding, house fires, or even snooping eyes. Use a quality home safe to lock up your valuables, personal documents, and other sensitive items that you don’t want damaged or easily accessed. 20. Secure your guns (if you have them) locking gun into gun safeGuns are tools with deadly potential. Respecting that potential and securing any guns that you own in a reliable gun safe can help prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. If you own a gun for home defense or recreation, consider investing in a gun safe to protect your guns and your loved ones. 21. Keep valuables out of sight Making sure to lock away or hide your valuables prevents anyone entering your home—like an installer, service provider, or even neighbors and family—from attempting an easy snatch-and-grab theft. Keep jewelry, sensitive documents, and personal information out of sight. 22. Make copies of important documents You should always have backup copies of any important personal or financial documentation in case the originals get damaged or lost. Keep these documents in a personal home safe or a safe-deposit box at your bank to ensure they remain private and secure. 23. Create an inventory of your valuables Making an inventory of expensive electronic equipment, jewelry, and other valuable items can help you keep track of what you have and know right away if anything is missing. Write down the serial numbers of any items that have them. Take a picture of each individual item as proof of ownership and update your inventory every time you add or replace items in your home. 24. Install a peephole in your front door A peephole is the old-school doorbell camera. It lets you see who’s at your door without opening it and leaving yourself vulnerable. Peepholes are an inexpensive way to add a little security to your home or apartment. 25. Secure your in-home Wi-Fi plugging in wifi modemYour Wi-Fi password should not be “password” or left as the default password. Anyone that gains access to your in-home Wi-Fi has access to your network where you keep personal or financial information. Make sure to secure your Wi-Fi beyond default settings. 26. Be wary of smart devices 🔐 Smart devices like Google Home or Amazon Echo have blown up in the last few years, as have other IFTTT products like the Nest Thermostat. These products provide many benefits and conveniences but could ultimately leave your in-home network vulnerable to outsider hacks. Make sure your network is secure and you know what kind of smart device you’re adding before connecting these devices in your home. 27. Upgrade your doors’ strike plates installing door lock strike plateMany people overlook upgrading their strike plates—the little metal plate screwed to the doorframe that your doorknob clicks into—on their exterior doors. Look for a heavy-duty strike plate and attach it to your door frame using 3-inch screws that penetrate the wooden frame and provide maximum resistance against someone trying to break down the door. Time to improve your home’s security Whether you implement one or all of these home security tips, you’re on your way to a safer, more secure home.

New Orleans Saints Get Stranded as Flight Crew Takes a Knee!


Flight Crew Takes A Knee And Walks Off, Leaving New Orleans Saints Stranded On Runway cid:image002.jpg@01D352E5.1F982750 The New Orleans Saints made the mistake of once again disrespecting our veterans, our country and our flag. After an embarrassing opening to a game with the worst ratings in Saints’ history, the players and coaches learned that their actions have consequences. Both the pilot and co-pilot of the Boeing 737 that the Saints use to travel are combat-hardened American heroes. They flew sorties over Baghdad with Saddam’s best weapons firing back. They fought with their lives for your freedom and watched many of their friends die. Today they took a stand for those brave souls: “We couldn’t be a party to the disrespect. We waited until we were cleared and last off the runway for the night, walked out of the cockpit, took a knee and deplaned. They’re not going anywhere until tomorrow.” Looks like the group of thugs should have just considered themselves lucky they’re allowed to make millions for playing a game and stand with respect like they’re told to do in the league rulebook. This week was the worst week in NFL history for ratings. Next week will be worse. "We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid." ~ Benjamin Franklin ~

Clinton’s Funding of the Trump Dossier is Just Part of the Story...


Clinton's Funding Of The Trump Dossier Is Just Part Of The Story L. BRENT BOZELL and TIM GRAHAM6:11 AM ET FacebookLinkedInTwitterShareReprints On Oct. 24, the Washington Post reported that Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired the opposition-research firm Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. The firm then retained former British intelligence operative Christopher Steele, who assembled a dubious dossier (complete with rumors of encounters with prostitutes) with information from his Russian contacts. Breaking news? Hardly. It has all but disappeared. This should have seriously undermined months of wildly speculative reporting on the Trump campaign seeking dirt on Clinton from the Russians, as well as the Democrats' warning of "treason." Even with the indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, there's still not a scintilla of evidence of Russia-Trump collusion. But looking like hypocrites for deeply indulging in a double standard never slows these "news" reporters down. The Daily Caller hints at a deeper angle, and it calls into question the media's sermons on transparency. CNN justice correspondent Evan Perez hyped the dossier, but Perez and CNN never told viewers that Perez worked closely with the founders of Fusion GPS for years at a previous job. Glenn Simpson, the Fusion GPS co-founder "most often associated with the dossier," worked on the same reporting staff as Perez at The Wall Street Journal, and they regularly co-authored stories. Peter Fritsch, another Fusion co-founder, worked above Simpson and Perez as the Journal's senior national security editor. A third co-founder, Tom Catan, was also a Wall Street Journal reporter in the same time frame. The Daily Caller showed Facebook photos of these men still going to baseball games and taking fishing vacations together. CNN's anti-Trump stories have hidden all this behind a wall of "anonymous sources." This is one dreadfully serious reason why the American people don't trust investigative reporting: In reality, it looks like a series of chummy handoffs funded by Trump opponents. "Pro-Clinton political activism" and "news reporting" are one and the same. "News" is being assembled and colored by personal transactions between old friends and/or political allies. There's a lot of horse trading and glad-handing in the "news" process that they hide through their opaque sourcing techniques. To be fair and balanced on this ethical front, the conservative Washington Free Beacon website also retained Fusion GPS for research — for a few months before the Clinton campaign and the DNC — and The Daily Caller says it had reported on Fusion GPS without acknowledging a relationship. For decades now, campaigns have been ravenous for opposition research — combing over decades of a candidate's policy positions, speeches and personal behavior; looking for something damaging that could change a political trajectory. Candidates and political parties pay for it, but the investigative reporters are also doing it. In the Trump era, "reporting" and "opposition research" have become one and the same. The Clinton campaign and the DNC paid former reporters to find a gold mine in Russia. Why go to the expense? Hundreds of liberal reporters have helped the Democrats at no charge. The public needs to be skeptical about just how ethical they are in organizing scoops behind the scenes. Bozell is the president of the Media Research Center. Graham is director of media analysis at the Media Research Center and executive editor of the blog NewsBusters.org.

Retired Husband Banned for Life at Walmart...🤣


HUSBAND After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - loves to browse & leaves me with endless time to fulfill. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter, from the local Wal-Mart Dear Mrs. Cunningham: Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion, in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Cunningham, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras: 1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking. 2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals. 3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom. 4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time; and costing the company money. We don't have a Code 3. 5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway. 6. August 14: Moved a, 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area. 7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged. 8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' The EMTs were called. 9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose. 10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were. 11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while, loudly humming the, 'Mission Impossible' theme. 12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his, 'Madonna Look' using different sizes of funnels. 13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!' 14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed; 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!' 15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where is the fitting room? And last, but not least: 16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile; then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out. If you don't send this to your dearest friends; You will be depriving them of some good humor. Most importantly, Enjoy Life - It has an expiration date.

Just One More Thing...


Just one more thing on ObamaCare Repeal Since only several million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will 16 million people be randomly shot? Just one more thing on Donald Trump. If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent? Just one more thing on equal pay. If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money? Just one more thing on Sanctuary Cities If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal? Just one more thing on ISIS. Each ISIS attack now is a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama's term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs. Just one more thing on the London 'Lone Wolf' terror attack. After the London 'Lone Wolf' terrorist attack government officials have arrested at least eight other 'Lone Wolves' who had conspired with the original 'Lone Wolf' in planning the 'Lone Wolf' attack. Even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured, the 'Lone Wolf; attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1000 plus 'Lone Wolf' attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam. Just one more thing on Entitlements. We should stop calling them all 'Entitlements'. Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nauseum are not entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts, and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients. Just one more thing on the Muslim Refugees. If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they're Islamophobic? Just one more thing on The Women's March. If Liberals don't believe in biological gender then why did they march for women's rights? Just one more thing on the Russians hacking the election. How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates? Just one more thing on Democrats and the Electoral College. Why is it that Democrats think Super delegates are fine, but they have a problem with the Electoral College? Just one more thing on the FBI and elections. If you don't want the FBI involved in elections, don't nominate someone who's being investigated by the FBI. Just one more thing on Hillary's speeches. If Hillary's speeches cost $250,000 an hour, how come no one shows up to her free ones? Just one more thing on Russia manipulating our election. The DNC is mad at Russia because they 'think' they are trying to manipulate our election by exposing that the DNC is manipulating our election? Just one more thing on Trump's 'Locker Room Banter'. Why is it that Liberals and the Media are upset about the words Trump used 11 years ago but they are all right with Adult men using the Ladies Room with your Wives and Daughters?

Santa Barbara Beach ... Vets vs ACLU! Support our Veterans!


I Santa Barbara Beach The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the Pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends. They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank, and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it. Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well. Amazing! The ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed. cid:BC25D04F0F8349CD81524349AD63D247@HP And that they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely. They're making great progress. cid:5670F4C87DB14E1CB1F92D52E8A5C671@HP Keep forwarding this e-mail to others. I'm not breaking this one. I'm asking that you not break it either. cid:D9B4F97B6FA8427885BEEFDEA0C709C7@HP If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward it a 1000 times! Prayer for our soldiers... please don't break it! Please send this on after this short prayer. Please, let us pray... Prayer: Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need. These things I humbly ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.' GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!

Why Trump is Right About North Korea...


Artillery pieces are seen being fired during a military drill at an unknown location, in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on March 25, 2016. REUTERS/KCNA/File Photo In terms of defending the homeland from Kim Jong-un, President Trump’s risk calculus is spot-on. Michael McLaughlin October 24, 2017 TweetShareShare Printer-friendly version The portrayals of both North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. president Donald Trump as bombastic egoists reacting emotionally seem to have become hackneyed as tensions continue to rise on the Korean Peninsula. But reducing the sophomoric rhetoric between the two men to mere chauvinistic posturing fails to reveal the genius underlying the Trump administration’s pressure campaign. President Trump’s tweets, while drawing the ire of both sides of the aisle, shatter the North Korean image of Kim Jong-un and force him to react from a position of weakness on terms dictated by the United States. To understand why Trump’s rhetoric is so effective, one must consider the president’s target audience. Kim Jong-un spent his early life in Switzerland, and was thrust into the spotlight prematurely due both to his father’s death and to the various inadequacies and indiscretions rendering his two elder brothers unfit to lead. To compensate for the twentysomething’s inexperience and lack of notoriety, North Korean officials began a relentless campaign to create the supreme myth of their new supreme leader. In an effort to reverse the growing resentment towards senior leaders brought on by his father’s reclusiveness and the memory of the terrible famine of the 1990s, through which the current generation came of age, Kim Jong-un was modeled as the reincarnation of his grandfather, Kim Il-sung. Prior to taking power, the younger Kim attended the Kim Il-sung Military Academy to establish his military bona fides before being commissioned a four-star general and named vice chairman of the Central Military Commission. The myth exaggerated Kim Jong-un’s military prowess through the Pyongyang propaganda machine, which has been a continuous font of photos appearing to show him planning military movements, videos in which he is instructing his generals, and fiery statements defending the Korean people against the acrimonious Americans and their South Korean puppet. There are even intimations that the shelling of South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island and the sinking of the Republic of Korea Navy vessel Cheonan in 2010 were attributed to Kim as a means of increasing his credibility. Much like his grandfather, this overweight, jolly and ever-smiling leader frequently appears in public for engagements and meetings with the Korean people, and to personally deliver orders to his military forces in the field—something his father, Kim Jong-il, who is said to have suffered from a severe stutter, rarely did. To further distance himself from the anathema of his father’s legacy, the young leader embarked on a savage campaign of over three hundred executions to rid his regime of Kim Jong-il’s inner circle. His eradication of senior leaders, while seen from the outside as a sign of paranoia, may have served the greater purpose of separating him from the taciturn and corrupt regime of his father in the minds of the rising generation of North Koreans. Having been educated in Switzerland, traveled extensively abroad and studied China’s rise to prosperity, Kim Jong-un is keenly aware of the precarious summit on which he sits. The North Korean black market consists of a capitalistic network of illicit goods smuggled in from China and other neighboring countries. While smuggling in North Korea is punishable by death, it has been largely ignored by Kim Jong-un’s regime. One likely reason for this is Kim’s understanding of the necessity to control the transformation of North Korea from a socialist state with a command market to a dictatorial capitalist economy that trades on the global market. “The success of a transition from a command economy seems to depend on the extent to which individuals in the socialist economy remember the institutional background of its early capitalism,” wrote Charles Kindleberger in reference to Poland’s transition in his seminal work Manias, Panics, and Crashes: A History of Financial Crises. “Such memory is more important to transitional success than the speed of decontrols and of privatization of state monopolies.” In order for Kim to remain in power, he needs both to foster an underground economy so as to establish a memory of capitalism and to reinforce his command of the military to thwart any would-be mutineers. By conducting more than twenty ballistic-missile launches and two nuclear detonations this year while keeping his military constantly on a wartime footing, Kim sustains his tyrannical control throughout the ranks while appearing to be much the same hawkish defender of the fatherland his grandfather was. By allowing capitalism to survive in the shadows, he maintains control over the gradual ascendance of a centrally managed market economy in the same vein as the pioneer of China’s economic awakening, Deng Xiaoping. What Kim Jong-un needs is time and money. Revamping North Korea’s society and economy while maintaining control over international influence inside the hermit kingdom is a delicate task. Opening China to the global market took Deng Xiaoping eleven years of adroit political maneuvering and significant foreign direct investment by Western corporations to achieve his “Four Modernizations” in the agricultural, industrial, science-and-technology and military sectors. 1 2 3 next › last »

And with all our progress, don't you just 
wish, just once, you could slip back in time 
and savor the slower pace, and share it with the children of today.

Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it 
wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, 
gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were
a much bigger threat! But we survived because
their love was greater than the threat.

...as well as summers filled with bike rides, 
Hula Hoops, and visits to the pool, and eating

I am sharing this with you today because it 
ended with a Double Dog Dare to pass it on. 
To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, 
read on. And remember that the perfect age 
is somewhere between old enough to know 
better and too young to care. 
Send this on to someone who can 
still remember Howdy Doody and The 
Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, 
The Shadow knows, Nellie Bell, Roy and Dale, 
Trigger and Buttermilk.
