A Message from a Close Friend, Perfectly Stated and On Point!


HOW MANY PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT USA & POLITICS!!! I am now in my 80's Recently I received a questionnaire and request for money from the Republican Party and strongly agree with every question, as I have since Obama was elected. Unfortunately the one question that was missing is: What have the Republicans done for the American people? We gave you a majority in the House and Senate, and you never listened to us. Now you want our money, my money, more money. You should be more concerned about our votes, not our money. You are the establishment which means all you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets. Well guess what? It's not going to happen. So far, TRUMP hasn't asked for a dime. You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self-destruct course, but look beyond Washington and listen to the masses. Nobody has achieved what he has, especially in the state of New York. Here's why I want Trump. Yes, he's a bit of an ass; yes, he's an egomaniac; but I don't care. The country is a mess because politicians suck. The Republican Party is two-faced and gutless, and illegals are everywhere. I want it all fixed! I don't care that Trump is crude. I don't care that he insults people. I don't care that he has changed positions. I don't care that he's been married 3 times. I don't care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell. I don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslim terrorist. Our country has become weak, and bankrupt. Our enemies are making fun of us. We are being invaded by illegals. We are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hassid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in, "AND I JUST WANT IT FIXED." And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what We The People want and need. I'm sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, and sick of illegals. I just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn't have lobbyist money controlling him; he doesn't have political correctness restraining him; all you know is that he has been very successful; a good negotiator; he has built a lot of things; and, he's also not a politician. And, he says he'll fix it. And, I believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.

Donald Trump Just Delivered The Mature Foreign Policy America Needs


Donald Trump Just Delivered The Mature Foreign Policy America Needs Whether this President lives up to his vision is another matter and will largely be for history to judge. But his stated foreign policy is mature, stable, and needed. It is grounded in historic American leadership around the world, not isolationism, and not multinational interventionism. President Trump's immediate predecessor took the world stage and often made it seem he though no nation was better or worse, but all were equal. Every nation said the same thing about how great their nation was and their nation was the best. We did it too as team sport, in Obama's mind, but his policies were premised on us not being the best nation. Yesterday at the United Nations, President Trump all but declared the United States actually really is the best damn nation that ever was, but is humble enough not to try to force everyone to our level. I'll take it!

How Women are Treated by Islam...No Respect!


How Women are Treated by Islam by Denis MacEoin • September 16, 2017 at 5:00 am "No one wants to demonise a particular community but the fact that this is happening again and again in the same circumstances and communities is a fact we cannot ignore. I think there needs to be a national approach..." — Greg Stone, Liberal Democrat party. If we look at a list of 265 convictions for grooming gangs and individuals in the UK between November 1997 and January 2017 (and if we add on another 18 for the recent Newcastle gang), we will note that more than 99% are for Muslim men, mainly young men in their 20s and 30s. It is, however, not just white (that is, non-Muslim) women whom Muslim men hold in such contempt. This abuse starts at home in Islamic countries in the treatment of Muslim women. Its roots lie in aspects of Islamic law and doctrine that are retained in the 21st century, despite having been formulated in the 7th century and later. The idea that a man is not responsible for rape or other sexual assault and that women bear the blame for such a crime goes far to help explain why Muslim men in Britain and elsewhere may feel themselves justified in grooming and sexually abusing young women and girls far less well covered. Women wearing burqas in Pakistan. (Photo by Paula Bronstein/Getty Images) Newcastle upon Tyne is a small city in the North-East of England which, in 2017, was acclaimed the best city in the UK in which to raise children (London was the worst). Imagine, then, the shock when the city again became national news on August 9 when a trial at the Crown Court ended in the conviction of 18 people for the sexual grooming of children. Juries "found the men guilty of a catalogue of nearly 100 offences – including rape, human trafficking, conspiracy to incite prostitution and drug supply – between 2011 and 2014." Of the 18, one was a white British woman. The rest were males of Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Iraqi, Turkish and Iranian backgrounds, all with Muslim names. Continue Reading Article

Trump’s Paycheck....


This will hit the news sooner or later! Recently, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, instead he donated it to an amazing cause! (see below) The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million. Here are some other key findings: There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies. Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009). However, it’s what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking. Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior, where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! It’s so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much. Oh, and where’s the media coverage of this? Oh that’s right, they don’t cover anything good that the president does. "Our democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." -- Thomas Jefferson The penalty for wise men that refuse to concern themselves with the affairs of Government, is to be governed by unwise Men -- Plato

Thoughts concerning today’s military commanders...


After spending 30+ years in uniform Iam very critical of the recent/past military promotion of field commanders. I believe that many have been promoted and given command based on their political correctness and willingness to parrot the feel good social engineering emphasized by political leaders over the last 10 years or so! Officers and Ncos failings political correctness qualifications and/or not parroting the social engineering party line were not promoted and/or driven out of the services. Cases in point: the Navy’s recent series of collisions at sea, The number of senior officers releaved of command and/or driven out of the services after the Obama/Clinton Bengahzi debacles! It’s time to get back to promoting and assigning those officers and ncos capable of leading our troops and defeating the enemy! Screw political correctness, social engineering experiments and the ass-kissing cocktail groups currently
screwing up our military!!!

Civic Duty...doing my part!


My Dear Friends, Hope all is well and you are having a nice summer. The fall season is just around the corner. I have embarked on a very important civic mission in defense of the USA and ask for your assistance. If you have kept up with developments of the past week you know the USA must rid itself of all vestiges of racism and intolerance. My civic mission is simple and if you follow the instructions below you will greatly assist me and our great country. 1. Get a shoebox size container. 2. Fill that with US Currency in denominations of $1/$2/$10/$20/$50/$100. The persons pictured on these bill are alleged slave owners and a threat to the existence of the USA. 3. Mail that on a monthly basis to me, I will dispose of the currency and I will reimburse you for postage. You may get offers like this from friends and strangers, but let me assure you I am the only authorized person to perform this civic duty. I know I can count on you to help the USA. PS: Pass this on to like minded Americans dedicated to a better America for all. Regards, JMM

Navy Sailor Refuses To Stand For National Anthem - IMMEDIATELY Regrets It. WRITTEN BY DAVID MILLER


It may work for the NFL but not for the Armed Forces. One way for people to learn discipline, since the Schools no longer have any, Actions=Consequences..... GOODBYE PETTY OFFICER 2ND CLASS JANAYE ERVIN! Article 92 of the UCMJ A former Navy intelligence specialist recently took a page out of Colin Kaepernick's playbook and refused to stand for the national anthem during morning colors. However, she quickly learned she'd made a huge mistake. Conservative Tribune reported that Petty Officer 2nd Class Janaye Ervin was stripped of her security clearance and assigned to menial labor for a few days before she was forced to leave the Navy for disrespecting our country so blatantly. It all started on September 19, when Ervin refused to stand for the anthem when she was on reserve duty at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii. The International Business Times reported that Ervin claimed she was trying to make a statement about blacks being persecuted in the United States by doing this. "I just didn't want to stand at that moment," Ervin said. "I can't stand for this song knowing that the song isn't for me, being black. The song doesn't represent me at all. To be honest, I never really thought about the flag my entire life, I had no reason to. It's just a flag." The next day, Ervin's superiors read her her rights and gave her a warning about potentially compromising her security clearance, which she needed for both her military and civilian job. One day after that, she was stripped of her security clearance and escorted out of the secure area where she was working. Ervin is now claiming that she was never told which order she was violating, but this is clearly a lie since she violated the 10th general order for sentries , ( To salute all officers and colors and standards not cased. ) which is taught in Navy boot camp. All members of the Navy are forced to memorize all 11 general orders in boot camp, and they are aware that violating any one of them is subject to Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and is subject to whatever punishment is decided by court-martial. On September 21, Ervin took to Facebook to publicly whine about how "unfair" this has been for her. "The Navy has decided to punish me for defending the Constitution and has taken away my equipment I need to do my Naval job," she wrote, according to PopularMilitary.com . Hey, Janaye, the Navy did not take ANYTHING from you - you forfeited your own job when you knowingly violated a general order. SHARE this story if you think she got what she deserved

NFL protesting the flag - POWERFUL! I will forward this and am fully in agreement with the letter below!


I don't think this could have been said any better and it definitely is about time someone said it. Hopefully, this will go out over EVERY computer in the U.S. and maybe, just maybe, these sports people will get the message of just how ridiculous they are to disrespect our flag, and how little what they do in sports compare to what our great military has done for this country.. NFL protesting the flag – POWERFUL! image Ret. Marine Col. Jeffery Powers wrote to the NFL commissioners the following: Commissioners, I've been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and the Giants Stadium. I missed the '90-'91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt. Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it. Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins. Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they're something special! They're not! My Marines and Soldiers were! You are complicit in this! You'll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it's their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly? I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that's much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn't it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone? Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You're just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not. Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles. They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don't do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced They don't even have ice! Many don't have legs or arms. Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes. I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you! Time to change the channel. Powers originally sent his letter to former Florida congressman Allen West. West then posted the letter to his news website. As of last week, at least 18 NFL player had protested the anthem by either kneeling during the anthem or raising their fists, according to USA Today Sports. If you agree with what he said please pass this on.

Liberalism (Libtardian) (Socialist) (Progressive) (Domestic Terrorist) = Democrat


EXCERPT FROM LETTER TO THE EDITOR IN WSJ:
The cause of the left’s disease isn’t that it took identity politics too far—that is just one symptom. The root cause is that the left has abandoned truth for power. The central teachings of the left (welfare cures poverty, only whites can be racist, capitalism is oppressive, gender is malleable, abortion is just a choice, unions help workers, trace levels of CO 2 control the climate) are false, no matter how often they are repeated. Progressive policies (socialized medicine, taxing the rich, alternative energy, centralized control over the economy) don’t work, no matter how often they are tried. I have no worry that I am tipping off the adversary. Liberals never admit that what they are doing is wrong, they just insist that they haven’t done enough of it yet. BRAD TUPI Pittsburgh

New American Civil War Pits Patriots Against The Radical Violent George Soros-Funded Progressive Left by Geoffrey Grider...


New post on Now The End Begins ANTIFA, the domestic terror group that claims to be "anti-fascist" in in fact highly fascist and aggressively violent. They have their beginnings in 2015, started on a Yale campus of all places in 2015, and have grown to be the Left's version of the KKK. Just like the KKK hates blacks, ANTIFA hates Jews. For 8 years, Barack Obama and the radical, George Soros-funded Left in this country did everything they could to enflame racial and political tensions. If you disagreed with Obama Marxist policies, it was because you secretly hated black people. If you complained that Michelle Obama was taking too many taxpayer-funded luxury vacations, it was because you secretly hated women and black people. The list was never ending and always arrived at the same place. Racial divisions. Then Black Lives Matter came along, and in 2016 people started dying. 5 officers were slain in Texas by shooter Micah Johnson with ties to Black Lives Matter. In the same year, in Sterling’s Baton Rouge, 125 people were arrested; an officer struck with a projectile lost several teeth. In Chicago, protesters broke through a police barricade, and multiple people were arrested on charges of battery against police. And in Castile’s St. Paul, Minn., more than 100 protesters were arrested when protesters used an overpass over Interstate 94 to throw rocks and rebar at police, injuring 21 officers, including one who suffered broken vertebrae when a concrete block was dropped on him from above. When one officer was injured, protesters cheered: “One piggly-wiggly down!” If police are even more fearful after all this, they would not be without reason. So where does Black Lives Matter get all the money to hire fleets of buses to bring in agitators from different states? George Soros, through his various shell companies and ghost organizations, funds all of it. ANTIFA in America, the domestic terror group that claims to be "anti-fascist" is in fact highly fascist and aggressively violent. They have their beginnings in 2015, started on a Yale campus of all places in 2015, and have grown to be the Left's version of the KKK. Just like the KKK hates blacks, ANTIFA hates Jews. This is the real face of ANTIFA, still think they are "anti-fascist"? antifa-flyer-charlottesville-fascists-heebs-domestic-terror-group HERE IS THE ANTIFA FLYER HANDED OUT AT CHARLOTTESVILLE RIOTS ADVOCATING FOR GOVERNMENT OVERTHROW OF "WHITE RACISTS AND HEEBS". WELCOME TO THE LEFT'S KKK. As you look at that flyer, and hopefully study it, what conclusion might you come to? If you are honest, you conclude that ANTIFA, funded by George Soros just like Black Lives Matter, is a domestic terror organization using fear, violence and intimidation to force their agenda down our throats. In short, they are the enemy of all freedom-loving, American patriots who desire to be governed by the rule of law. Now, black lawmakers who support ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, are demanding that statues in our nation's capitol get taken down. “Confederate memorabilia have no place in this country and especially not in the United States Capitol. These images symbolize a time of racial discrimination and segregation that continues to haunt this country and many African-Americans who still to this day face racism and bigotry,” Thompson said in a statement to The Hill. “It is past time for action to remove all Confederate symbols in the U.S. Capitol and on the Mississippi state flag.” So I ask you, where will all this end? You know where it will end. If not checked soon, our current civil war will end exactly like our previous Civil War, with piles and piles of dead bodies. George Soros, the desperately old demon he is, is not running out of money anytime soon. And even when he dies, the criminal organizations he has put in place will last long after his rotting body vanishes into dust. President Trump is one of the only people in Washington to say it like it is, and because he speaks the truth in blaming both sides, he is lambasted night and day by the fake news media and the George Soros splinter groups. America stands right now at a pivotal crossroads, one from which there is no turning back. Leftist thugs cannot be allowed to tear down statues and rewrite the history of our nation. They are anarchists and must be treated as such. Over the last 100 years, we have seen Progressive uprisings in major nations like Russia, Germany and Italy just to name a few, and they always end badly. Russian Progressives created Stalin, German Progressives created Hitler, and Italian Progressives created Mussolini. The end game here in America is to topple our government and install European fascism, the exact same style fascism that groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter claim to be against. Just remember, Hitler came preaching peace and prosperity. How'd that work out for the German people? The new Civil War is well underway so pick a side.

Trump nailed it again! Chaos, Created & Organized by obamites....


No Images? View Online What the President Said Is True, Whether You Like It Or Not Facebook Twitter The left is leaving no ground to compromise on this issue. They will leave no Confederate monument in the ground. And with no room to compromise I suspect they will not like it when very many Americans who may not care for the President wind up standing with him against the left. And the left can scream and cry bigotry all they want, but they will thankfully be shut out of power for another electoral cycle. American leftists have decided if you are not with them, you are evil and worth silencing. They will allow no alternative opinions and they will allow no dissent. They will not even allow people the courtesy of neutrality. So the average American will probably give them an electoral middle finger, deservedly so. Like it or not, the President made some fair and reasonable points in yesterday's press conference. That the media melted down over them says more about the press than the President and suggests the media will yet again misjudge the lay of the political landscape. Read More...

What has happened to Fox News? Why is it following the Left...?


The following was sent to Fox News from its contact place on its Website: What has happened to Fox News? Why is it following the Left in its characterization of the Charlottesville protests? Is straight news reporting finally slipping away from Fox News, as it has in most of the rest of the former media? I have heard reporting and comments on a number of programs, all condemning the White Supremacy group as terrorist group. Oh, everyone is up in arms. Even the commentators usually relied up as blasting away. But I have heard no reports or comments condemning the Opposition Group as a terrorist group. What is the Opposition Group? Who named it? Why is it not called by its real name, as the White group is called? Isn't it made up of Black Lives Matter, that so respected group? Is it not made up of other groups that have been rioting on college campuses and in the streets? Are those groups not terroristic? Are they not racist? I am not in favor of the White Supremacy group. If you erase it, that would be fine. But we have gone for many months and even years of protest from various groups on the Left and they have not been reported or commented on as terrorist groups. The White Supremacy group had permission to hold a gathering. The Left groups have never had permission to hold gatherings or protests. They just appear, hurt people, stop people from their business and burn and otherwise damage private and public buildings and property. If the Left group, as always paid, had not appeared in Charlottesville, there would have been no deaths, injuries or destruction. All of the blame cannot go to one side. So why not erase it, too? As to the spineless Republicans and other government and congressional officials and those talking asses on television programs who criticize President Donald Trump for his statement, they should be smarter, more fair and even loyal. For instance, they should respect the president for not indulging in what Barack Obama indulged in many, many times: convicting people before even a few of the facts were learned. How soon we forget. A Fox reporter even went so far as to cast doubt on the statement of the mother of the arrested driver of the car that plowed into the crowd. He said she had been interviewed by The Associated Press — that certainly unbiased news agency — and told reporters that she didn't know of the son's intentions. He said she may know more than she was admitting. And to what seer do we attribute that bit of speculation? Black Lives Matter and other Soros groups should be called out as terrorist groups and arrested in huge numbers the moment they move from free speech on sidewalks to the rioting in the streets. Then reporting would be more balanced and more acceptable. I would like for Fox to run an investigation, report how many rioting situations have gone on in the nation since the election or the first of the year or the inauguration. Estimate how much damage has been done, how many people have been injured and killed. That would be some reporting that the people of this nation could understand. Charles Rondinelli

President Trump, Not President Clinton, Will Now Deal With North Korea By Erick Erickson | Wednesday, August 9, 2017 Though the left can construct alternate realities in their minds, Hillary Clinton fan fiction, protests, and clever tweets, the reality as the sun rises this morning is that Donald Trump is President, Hillary Clinton is not, and President Trump must now deal with the failures of his predecessors. We should all also be mindful that the very rhetoric used by Bill Clinton to assure the world North Korea would never get nukes was then used by Barack Obama to assure us Iran would never get nukes. President Trump, in dealing with the messes of his predecessors regarding North Korea, should take a very hard look at the Iranian deal lest a future President have to play clean up there. In the meantime, all of us should be in prayer for our President. Read More...

America Should Not Cheer on an India-China Fight by Lyle J. Goldstein

Iran and Al Qaeda Exploit Syria Ceasefire By Genevieve Casagrande Key Takeaway: The U.S., Russia, Jordan "de-escalation zone" in Southwest Syria advances the interests of U.S. enemies and adversaries, including Iran and al Qaeda. The U.S. likely sought to leverage the agreement to drive a wedge within the Russo-Iranian Coalition, while reducing violence and testing a potential partnership with Russia to improve security in Syria. The deal has temporarily reduced violence, but at great cost to long-term U.S. interests in Syria. The Russo-Iranian coalition is exploiting the agreement to consolidate in the south. Al Qaeda will likewise leverage the deal and the recent cut to U.S. support to vetted Syrian opposition groups to preserve and expand its influence in Southern Syria. The de-escalation zone brokered by the U.S., Russia, and Jordan does not meaningfully constrain Iranian build up in Southern Syria and along the Golan Heights. The deal is rumored to include an "exclusionary zone" that requires Iranian and other non-Syrian forces to maintain a 30-40 KM distance from the Jordanian border. Iran and Hezbollah flaunted a large re-deployment away from frontlines in Dera'a City immediately after the de-escalation zone went into effect on July 9 in order to falsely demonstrate Iranian commitment to such an exclusionary zone to the United States. Most of the pro-Iranian forces relocated to areas just outside the exclusionary zone - including in the town of Sanamayn located approximately 50 KM from the Jordanian border - and to areas just outside Dera'a City, such as Athman. Hezbollah and other pro-Iranian forces retained many of their longstanding positionswithin the de-escalation zone and likely maintain some latent forces within Dera'a City, itself. Notably, the deal did not affect the historic pro-Iranian build up on the Golan Heights, a concern voiced by Israel in the weeks following the ceasefire. Iranian and pro-regime capabilities in the south remain largely unchanged. These local re-deployments and troop rotations still allow for Iran to quickly re-deploy to frontlines against anti-Assad forces as necessary. The de-escalation zone agreement secures the freedom of movement of Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime at the expense of U.S. partners. The deal has allowed Iran to temporarily shift assets away from previously contested frontlines like Dera'a City to reinforce other active fronts against the U.S. and partnered forces. Pro-Iranian and regime forces with Russian air supportlaunched operations against historically U.S.-backed opposition groups in Northern Suwayda and Eastern Rif Dimashq Provinces following the start of the ceasefire. The deal has freed up the pro-Assad coalition to continue to further project force into Eastern Syria. Pro-regime forces backed by Russia and Iran advanced to the outskirts of Sukhna along the ground line of communication (GLOC) between Palmyra and Deir ez Zour City on July 28. Iran, Assad, and Russia seek to reopen this GLOC to besieged regime-held areas of Deir ez Zour. These advances would ultimately constrain the freedom of action of the U.S.-led Anti-ISIS coalition in Eastern Syria and could block further advances by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) along the Euphrates River Valley. Russian build up along the frontline stands to deepen the Russo-Iranian coalition's penetration in Southern Syria. The deal lacks a legitimate, neutral enforcement mechanism and primarily relies upon Russian, Chechen, and Ingush forces to guarantee the agreement along the line of contact between regime and opposition forces. Russia cannot and will not restrain Iran and Assad. Russia deployed hundreds of military police including Ingush units to man observation points along the line of contact. The Russian force is positioned to protect -- not push back -- Iranian positions within this zone. The ceasefire deal allows al Qaeda to preserve its strength and expand its influence in Southern Syria. Al Qaeda had begun to reinvigorate its campaign to transform the Syrian opposition in its own image prior to the declaration of the de-escalation zone. Al Qaeda dispatched approximately thirtysenior officials to Southern Syria in May 2017. Al Qaeda likely seeks to replicate its recent success in Idlib Province in the South. The ceasefire deal will provide Al Qaeda with time and space to further network itself within the opposition, including through local governance and security structures. U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to halt some covert support to vetted opposition groups in Western Syria will only accelerate al Qaeda's potential rise in the south. Syrian rebels have expressed dissatisfaction over U.S. demands to abandon the fight against President Assad and decreased U.S. support to rebels. Al Qaeda will exploit these grievances and attempt to fill the vacuum. Al Qaeda will position itself to eventually spoil the agreement, but will do so in a timeframe that supports its own interests.

July 31, 2017 Politics gone crazy: 21st century Nero fiddles as 'Rome burns'? WES VERNON — America needs to get its priorities straight. Picture this nightmare: Ex-President Barack Obama did (and out-of-office continues to) do his best to bring down America. Unlike other ex-presidents who had the courtesy to go home after their time in office was at an end and get out of their successor's way, Mr. Obama moved himself and his family into a mansion in a toney neighborhood in Washington, D.C. where he -- not satisfied with the damage he inflicted during the eight years the voters entrusted him the highest honor America can offer -- is now well-situated to undermine President Trump. He's like the rude house guest who never goes home.... (more)

UNREAL: Emails Leaked From Lynch Clinton Tarmac Meeting…Read This Before Its DELETED


CONSERVATIVE HEADLINES POLITICS UNREAL: Emails Leaked From Lynch Clinton Tarmac Meeting…Read This Before Its DELETED Posted on August 4, 2017 by Doyle Alexander Tarmac Newly released documents obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice show that members of the mainstream media are knowingly colluding with Hillary’s campaign. Watch the infamous moment below at the :30 sec mark. The Justice Department colluded with Washington Post and the New York Times to “tamp-down” stories relating to the Attorney General’s infamous meeting with Bill Clinton,” according to this shocking report. You can read that here. Comey’s FBI lied to us. The ACLJ submitted FOIA requests to Comey’s FBI and the Lynch DOJ about the Clinton Lynch plane meeting. James Comey was the head of the FBI at the time. The response they got was “No records responsive to your request were located.” Here’s what Varney and Co had to say about the story. Stuart Varney said on Fox the following: Liz McDonald: “I am hoping I can put it to rest. The New York Times reporter apologetically says he is being pressed into service to cover the story… A DOJ press official says, “I talked with the ABC producer he said he’s not interested in covering it even if FOX goes with it.” Stuart Varney: “This is collusion between reporters, specifically the Washington Post, and the Department of Justice.”

The real Russia-gate scandal...


The real Russia-gate scandal CLIFF KINCAID — In the time period of 2007-2008, two journalists – Trevor Loudon, a blogger from New Zealand, and America's Survival President Cliff Kincaid – tried to interest the public and the media in what they considered the story of their lifetimes. It was how a first-term largely unknown Senator from Illinois was a covert communist with backing from Russia who was poised to win the presidency of the United States. But the "fake news media" were not interested in the facts about then-Senator Obama, or the security risk he posed that would polarize and destabilize a nation -- and they covered up the story of Obama's communist mentor, suspected Soviet espionage agent Frank Marshall Davis. Here, for the first time in print, is how Loudon and Kincaid unraveled the story of America's first Marxist President. Kincaid says, "The smoking gun evidence of Barack Hussein Obama's deep personal relationship with suspected Soviet espionage agent and Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis is the real Russia-gate scandal."...

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich WASHINGTON – Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh appears to have dropped a bombshell in audio released Tuesday – pointing out that the DNC emails obtained by WikiLeaks stopped pouring in after the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich in 2016. image: http://www.wnd.com/files/2017/08/Pulitzer-Prize-winning-investigative-report-Seymour-Hersh-231x300.jpg Pulitzer Prize winning investigative report Seymour HershIn the audio, Hersh also claims an FBI report described to him by an insider confirms that Rich, the DNC voter-expansion data director, had taken some emails to WikiLeaks and requested payment for a full trove of DNC emails during the presidential campaign. In fact, the latest DNC email released by WikiLeaks was dated May 18, 2016 – just weeks before Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun. “There are no DNC or Podesta emails that exist beyond May 21 or 22, last email from either one of those groups. What the report says is that some time in late spring … he makes contact with WikiLeaks, that’s in his computer,” Hersh says in audio almost certainly recorded by financier Ed Butowsky, who hired private investigator Rod Wheeler to investigate the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich last July. Hersh continued: “Anyway, they found what he had done is that he had submitted a series of documents — of emails, of juicy emails, from the DNC.” Related story: “Seymour Hersh: Spy chiefs invented Russia-collusion story” Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2017/08/bombshell-dropped-on-seth-rich-murder-mystery/#QUaqX2JDDI1lB4IM.99

Sharia USA: Court Rules Residents Can’t Mention “Islam” or “Muslim” At Public Hearing By Pamela Geller


Sharia USA: Court Rules Residents Can’t Mention “Islam” or “Muslim” At Public Hearing By Pamela Geller - on August 1, 2017 SHARIA IN AMERICA This is sharia. This is a blasphemy ruling. Sharia commands Islamic supremacism, Muslims as a special class, and it’s here. Sharia commands restrictions on speech concerning Islam. It’s not a rumor, a maybe-what-if, it’s here. Court: Residents Can’t Mention “Islam” or “Muslim” At Public Hearing on Mosque Construction; Thomas More Law Center Files Federal Lawsuit ANN ARBOR, MI – In a settlement agreement, which reads more like an instrument of surrender, Bernards Township (“Township”), New Jersey officials agreed that, in addition to a $3.5 million payment to Islamic Society of Basking Ridge (“ISBR”), residents and citizens of the Township are prohibited from commenting on “Islam” or “Muslims” at the upcoming public hearing to approve the settlement. Astonishingly, a federal judge approved the prohibition as a fully enforceable Order of the Court. As a result of this suppression of speech, the Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, yesterday, filed a lawsuit in the New Jersey Federal District Court on behalf of Christopher and Loretta Quick. The lawsuit was filed by TMLC affiliated New Jersey attorney, Michael Hrycak. Mr. Hrycak was assisted by TMLC staff attorney, Tyler Brooks. The TMLC is representing the Quicks without charge. TMLC’s lawsuit alleges that Bernards Township’s settlement agreement constitutes a prior restraint on speech based on content, as well as, a violation of the Establishment Clause because it prefers Islam over other religions. The lawsuit asks the court to: declare that the settlement agreement is unconstitutional; and to enter a preliminary and permanent injunction against its enforcement. Read TMLC’s entire Federal Complaint here. The Quicks reside within 200 feet of the proposed mosque construction in a zoned residential area. Yet, the settlement agreement prohibits them from describing the many unique features of Islamic worship which will impact design of the building, traffic density, water and sewage, traffic control problems, road construction, and parking arrangements. According to the settlement agreement, ISBR is permitted to make statements concerning Christians and Jews and their places of worship, but in contrast, the Agreement prohibits commentary relating to Islam or Muslims. In fact, ISBR has previously discussed the Christian and Jewish religions and their places of worship. Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented: “As we have previously documented, ISBR has taken the extraordinary step of concealing significant links on their website to a radical group named by the federal government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in America history, the Islamic Society of North America (“ISNA”). ISNA is claimed by the Muslim Brotherhood as one of “our organizations.” According to internal documents seized by the FBI, the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy is to engage in a “grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within . . .” Thompson continued, “While claiming that the Township had a religious animus against Muslims, ISBR hid from the public view its animus toward Christians and Jews, by not only hiding anti-Christian and anti-Semitic verses published on its website, but also hiding its significant ties to ISNA. Instead of standing up to defend its citizens against ISBR’s hate-filled anti-Semitic and anti-Christian bias, the Township colluded with ISBR’s “Civilization Jihad” by capitulating to payment of millions of dollars to ISBR, allowing the construction of the new mosque and Islamic center in violation of zoning codes, and now even suppressing speech concerning Islam or Muslims at a public meeting.” In March 2016, ISBR filed a lawsuit in the New Jersey Federal District Court alleging that Bernards Township had discriminated against the Islamic Society when it declined to approve the construction of a large mosque on a lot that was far too small to handle the contemplated structure. And in November 2016, the United States represented by the U. S. Justice Department filed a second lawsuit against the Township on similar grounds. The settlement agreement covers both lawsuits.

Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. She writes:

Dear Grand-daughter, The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker . I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting. So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed. I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed. I found that lot of people love Jesus! While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!' What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach. I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!! A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!! Will write again soon, Love, Grandma

Malia Obama Fired From Cushy Internship At Spanish Embassy......Rotting Fruit falls close to diseased tree!

Malia Obama Fired From Cushy Internship At Spanish Embassy How does an 18-year-old girl fresh out of high school land a job as an intern at the US Embassy in Spain? In this case the daughter of a president was moved to the front of the line. It didn't last long, however, because just like at home, Malia has issues with staying out of trouble. She was caught, by Embassy Security — aka the US Marines — on the roof of the building burning a doobie. Malia was terminated immediately, her room was cleared and she was escorted from the private areas of the embassy to the common area where she could wait to change the dates on her travel visa so she could return home. She was last seen in the lobby when a black SUV pulled up out front and she willingly got in. Looks like Daddy probably saved the day again. No word now on Malia's next move. She won't be starting Harvard this fall and she has no future in government, since all government jobs require drug tests. Maybe she can go to work with her benevolent father collecting huge speaking fees for destroying the country. =

Newly Commissioned Carrier Ford’s Leap-Ahead Technology Approach May Be a Thing of the Past
 
Saturday’s commissioning of aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78) was a celebration of the end of a long and at-times hard road to bring the warship and its many new technologies to the fleet – a path the Navy may not choose to take again.

The Navy identified the fix in 2015, but wasn’t finished testing it until this summer, according to the release.
 
 

 
That time Marines in a firefight called customer service for help with an M-107
 
 
When you need help, there’s nothing embarrassing about asking for it. Especially when the pressure is on to get it right as soon as possible.

Rifles are no different. And if you have to call an arms manufacturer for a problem there, it’s probably a big deal.
 
That’s why Barrett Firearms Manufacturing provides service for its products long after they enter military service. Most notably, the beloved Barrett M-107 .50-caliber rifle.
 
Don Cook is a Marine Corps veteran who has been working at Barrett for 17 years. In an interview with National Geographic, he recalled the time he received an interesting call on the customer service line — a call from troops in an active firefight.

Trump Stands With the Troops
 
"Be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military."
 
In the Obama years, the military was starved for funds and used as a playground for the Left’s bizarre ideas. In the Trump/Pence administration, our warriors are being freed from the Left’s progressive experiments. That is something to celebrate.
 
But, my friends, the Left’s counterattack is coming. We must be ready.

He FightsThanks, RP
 
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: 
 
We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same. 
 
This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob. 
 
Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

Foxconn Announces $10B American Factory in Wisconsin 
 
President Trump takes credit
 
The Taiwanese electronics giant famous for manufacturing Apple smartphones will spend $10 billion over four years to build a new LCD TV screen plant in Wisconsin.  Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the state will award $3 billion in incentives over 15 years to the factory, which will initially employ 3,000 people.
 
 

 
Dementia Villages Return Patients to the Past 
 
 
Nostalgia is a powerful thing. From New Zealand to the Netherlands, dementia care facilities are turning to “reminiscence therapy,” which takes advantage of patients’ rose-colored memories of their youths by recreating the design and feel of the 1950s and ’60s to create interactive environments.
 
 

 

After a day fishing on Lake Michigan, a fisherman is walking from the pier carrying two brown trout in a bucket. He is approached by a Conservation Officer who asks him for his fishing license. 
 
 The fisherman says to the warden, "I was not fishing and I did not catch these browns, they are my pets. Every day I come down to the water and dump these fish into the water and take them for a walk to the end of the pier and back. When I'm ready to go I whistle and they jump back into the bucket and we go home. The officer not believing him, reminds him that it is illegal to fish without a license. 
 
 The fisherman turns to the warden and says, "If you don't believe me then watch," as he throws  the trout back into the water. 
 
 The warden says, "Now whistle to your fish and show me that they will jump out of the water and into the bucket." 
 
 The fisherman turns to the officer and says, "What fish?" 
 

 
A farmer in the country noticed that a gentleman would fish at the lake (close to the farmer's house) and would always leave with a stringer full of fish. 
 
 The fellow had a boat but a fishing pole was not to be seen. The farmer mentioned the situation  to the game warden. The warden then started watching this man and all that the farmer said was true! The man would arrive at the lake in the morning and by early afternoon, he had a stringer full of fish. 
 
 The warden dressed like a fisherman one day and approached the man. They exchanged pleasantries and the stranger asked the warden in disguise to come fish with him. They boated for 45 minutes and arrived at a secluded spot. 
 
 The stranger then pulled out a stick of dynamite. The warden said, "I'm going to have to place you under arrest--I am a game warden and you are fishing illegally!" 
 
 The stranger calmly lit the stick of dynamite and handed it to the warden. The stranger then said, "Are you gonna talk or fish?" 
 

 
 

 
There is no arguing with cowboy logic. 
 
The Sierra Club and the US Forest Service were presenting an alternative to Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population. It seems that after years of the ranchers using the tried and true methods of shooting and/or trapping the predator, the tree-huggers had a "more humane" solution. What they proposed was for the animals to be captured alive, the male castrated and let loose again and the population would be controlled. 
 
 This was ACTUALLY proposed to the Wyoming Wool and Sheep Grower's Association by the Sierra Club and the USFS. All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes. 
 
 Finally, an old boy in the in the back stood up, tipped his hat back and said, "Son, I don't think you understand the problem. Those coyotes ain't f*ckin' our sheep, they're eatin' 'em. 

 
Advice for Congress?
 
 
 

 

A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Britain: June 2017...

A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Britain: June 2017

by Soeren Kern  •  July 28, 2017 at 5:00 am
  • Nazir Afzal, a former chief crown prosecutor and one of the most prominent Muslim lawyers in Britain, warned that an "industry" of Islamist groups in the country is undermining the fight against terrorism. He singled out the Islamist-dominated Muslim Council of Britain and also condemned "self-appointed" community leaders whose sole agenda was to present Muslims "as victims and not as those who are potentially becoming radicals."
  • Col. Richard Kemp, former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, charged London Mayor Sadiq Khan with "appeasing jihadists" for authorizing the Al-Quds Day march.
  • More than 40 foreign jihadists have used human rights laws to remain in Britain, according to an unpublished report delayed by the Home Office.

You Gotta love our Marines....they make the very most out of every encounter ...GOD BLESS THEM “Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, & Special Ops Troops of US” ALL!


You Gotta love our Marines....they make the very most out of every encounter ...GOD BLESS THEM ALL!  And don’t forget the rest of the Armed Forces!


This guy is a legend and comes from a family of legends!



Michael
                                                          Burghardt


AWESOME!!!  Read below pic before making judgment on 'The Finger' gesture and you'll understand....
THIS NEEDS TO KEEP GOING.

Leading the fight is U S Marine Gunnery Sgt. Michael Burghardt, known as 'Iron Mike' or just 'Gunny'. He is on his third tour in Iraq . He had become a legend in the bomb disposal world after winning the Bronze Star for disabling 64 IEDs and destroying 1,548 pieces of ordnance during his second tour. 

 
Then, on September 19, he got blown up... He had arrived at a chaotic scene after a bomb had killed four US Marines.. He chose not to wear the bulky bomb protection suit. 'You can't react to any sniper fire and you get tunnel-vision,' he explains. So, protected by just a helmet and standard-issue flak jacket, he began what bomb disposal officers term 'the longest walk', stepping gingerly into a 5 foot deep and 8 foot wide crater. 
The earth shifted slightly and he saw a Senao base station with a wire leading from it.  He cut the wire and used his 7 inch knife to probe the ground.  'I found a piece of red detonating cord between my legs,' he says. 'That's when I knew I was screwed.' Realizing he had been sucked into a trap, Sgt Burghardt, 35, yelled at everyone to stay back. At that moment, an insurgent, probably watching through binoculars, pressed a button on his mobile phone to detonate the secondary device below the sergeant's feet  'A chill went up the back of my neck and then the bomb exploded,' he recalls. 'As I was in the air I remember thinking, 'I don't believe they got me...' I was just ticked off they were able to do it. Then I was lying on the road, not able to feel anything from the waist down.' 
His fellow Marines cut off his trousers to see how badly he was hurt. None could believe his legs were still there 'My dad's a Vietnam vet who's paralyzed from the waist down,' says Sgt Burghardt. 'I was lying there thinking I didn't want to be in a wheelchair next to my dad and for him to see me like that... They started to cut away my pants and I felt a real sharp pain and blood trickling down. Then I wiggled my toes and I thought, 'Good, I'm in business.'  As a stretcher was brought over, adrenaline and anger kicked in. 'I decided to walk to the helicopter. I wasn't going to let my team-mates see me being carried away on a stretcher.' He stood and gave the insurgents who had blown him up a one-fingered salute. 'I flipped them one.. It was like, 'OK, I lost that round but I'll be back next week.' 

Copies of a photograph depicting his defiance, taken by Jeff Bundy for the Omaha World-Herald, adorn the walls of homes across America and that of Col John Gronski, the brigade commander in Ramadi, who has hailed the image as an    exemplar of the warrior spirit. 
Sgt Burghardt's injuries - burns and wounds to his legs and buttocks - kept him off duty for nearly a month and could have earned him a ticket home.  But, like his father - who was awarded a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts for being wounded in action in Vietnam - he stayed in Ramadi to engage in the battle against insurgents who are forever coming up with more ingenious ways of killing Americans.. 


Are you proud enough to send this on ?    


YOU BETCHA I AM!!!
