President Donald Trump

DEMOCRATS ARE NOW THE PARTY OF RACIST VIOLENCE

Lessons Democrats must learn

Lessons Democrats must learn

On July 7, 2016 in Dallas, a Black Nationalist named Micah Xavier Johnson shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally.  He said he wanted “to kill white people, especially white officers.”

Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended the racist hate group.  The result is today the Left-led Democrats have killed civil rights and replaced it with Black Nationalism. The racial supremacism of Black Nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere.

If Democrats really want to stop the rise of Neo-Nazi violence, there’s a very easy way. Stop normalizing Black Nationalism and the Alt-Left. End the racist witch hunts for white privilege. Make it clear that street violence is unacceptable and that racism is bad no matter who it comes from. Allow people you disagree with to express their views without trying to destroy their lives.

But that’s the opposite of what the Dems will do. They don’t want fewer Neo-Nazis; they want more of them. They don’t want fewer attacks like Charlottesville and Charleston. They want more of them.

GOOGLE’S IDEOLOGICAL ECHO CHAMBER

google-enemy-of-the-people[This is the full ten-page internal memo to fellow employees attacking Google’s politically correct monoculture, written by Google engineer James Damore – whose facts and assertions were proven excruciatingly correct by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who fired Damore last night (8/07) for “advancing harmful gender stereotypes.”

TTP encourages you to read it entire.  It outraged Google’s fascist Social Justice Warriors, to whom Pichai instantly succumbed.  The SJW Code of Conduct has three rules:  Always lie, always project, always double down.  All three are evidenced by Google’s firing Damore for brilliantly and courageously speaking truth to power.]

I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes.

When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem.

Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber.

Despite what the public response seems to have been, I’ve gotten many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude for bringing up these very important issues which they agree with but would never have the courage to say or defend because of our shaming culture and the possibility of being fired. This needs to change.

GOOGLE IS EVIL. HERE’S HOW TO HURT THEM – AND ESCAPE THEM

google-is-evil[Intro note from Jack Wheeler: One of the nice things about TTP is the quality of insights I receive from members. After seeing what Google just did to one of its honest employees, TTPer Joe emailed me about living a Google-free life. More important, he and his TTPer friends explained the nature of the Google threat, and how each of us can hurt Google while making our Internet use more pleasant.

I encourage you to leverage their broad technical knowledge by passing these suggestions on to friends. All I ask is that if you do, tell them that it comes from TTP!] 

After watching Google fire James Damore for daring to use science to argue with corporate policy, it's hard to disagree with my friend and fellow TTPer Jason, who calls Google "one of the most insidious, evil companies the world has ever known." 

Fighting back will involve some political action, but most of the action will be personal. It may seem like it’s hard to live without Google products, but it’s actually quite easy.

I’m going to show you exactly how to do that, while improving your tech life at the same time. We’re also going to talk about how to really hurt Google where it counts.

TRUMP SHOULD FIRE MCMASTER AND THE ENTIRE NSC STAFF

youre-firedPresident Donald Trump has a defining question before him in the decision on whether to fire National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster and sweep the entire National Security Council clean.

When the Washington Post last Thursday (8/03) published annotated transcripts of President Trump’s Oval Office telephone conversations with the presidents of Mexico and Australia respectively, citing an NSC controlled transcript as the source, inestimable damage was done to the United States’ ability to conduct foreign policy.

No wonder this is being called MOAL – Mother of All Leaks – as it is more damaging than the others by several orders of magnitude:

Our national security and the trust of every other nation in the world has been compromised by criminals operating with security clearances at the NSC and elsewhere in our government.

With the unprecedented, politically motivated leaking occurring under McMaster’s watch, an honorable man would offer his resignation for having failed his duty to the president. And the president should accept it.

MCMASTERS’ NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL IS BECOMING A NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT

mcmasters-nscDerek Harvey was a man who saw things coming. He had warned of Al Qaeda when most chose to ignore it. He had seen the Sunni insurgency rising when most chose to deny it.

The former Army colonel had made his reputation by learning the lay of the land. In Iraq that meant sleeping on mud floors and digging into documents to figure out where the threat was coming from.

It was hard to imagine anyone better qualified to serve as President Trump’s top Middle East adviser at the National Security Council than a man who had been on the ground in Iraq and who had seen it all.

Just like in Iraq, Harvey began digging at the NSC. He came up with a list of Obama holdovers who were leaking to the press. H.R. McMaster, the new head of the NSC, refused to fire any of them.

McMaster had a different list of people he wanted to fire. It was easy to make the list. Harvey was on it.

All you had to do was name Islamic terrorism as the problem and oppose the Iran Deal. If you came in with Flynn, you would be out. If you were loyal to Trump, your days were numbered.

And if you warned about Obama holdovers undermining the new administration, you were a target.  Call it McMasters’ Coup against the President.

CAMP STUPID USA

Where Judaism and stupid are one too

Where Judaism and stupid are one too

The forests and lakes around Olympia, Washington is one of the most idyllic places in America.  Since 1954, there’s been a wonderful summer camp for Jewish kids – Camp Solomon Schechter – where they can hike, swim, canoe, fish, climb trees and rappel down them, and have an abundance of just plain fun.

Generations of young Jews have grown up with fondest memories of their time here.  That’s why it’s so sad that people are now calling it Camp Stupid.

Last week, the camp hosted a group of children from an Israeli organization Kids4Peace, some of whom are Moslem.  “For a teachable moment,” the camp directors declared, a Palestinian flag would be flown over the camp next to the flags of America and Israel, “as a sign of friendship and acceptance.”

Condemnation was swift, such as the FoxNews headline (7/31), Jewish Summer Camp Hit for Flying The Palestinian Flag in ‘Teachable Moment’.

The “teachable moment” for Jews is that it symbolizes two points:

1. Our desperate need to be loved.

2. It happened at the time when an Islamic preacher in California got caught sermonizing death to all Jews.

CHINA’S NEW FAKE NEWS MEDIA STRATEGY

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo

Chinese scholar and author Liu Xiaobo was awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize "for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China.”  He was in prison at the time and not allowed to attend the ceremony in Oslo.  It was his fourth incarceration by the Communists. 

It was his last.  He would stay in prison until he died three weeks ago.

As he lay on his deathbed late June, a mysterious video surfaced on YouTube, showing him undergoing medical treatment while in custody and telling medical staff he “greatly appreciated” the care he was given.

While news of his terminal liver cancer was met with shock and disbelief around the globe, China’s state propaganda machine swiftly moved into high gear to make sure its version of the story was dominating public discourse.

The government’s attempt to monopolize the storyline related to Liu’s illness and death is part of a radical change in the way the Chinese government uses the media. Instead of hushing up issues it found embarrassing like in the past, it is now aggressively manipulating the public discourse with Fake News.

ENDING THE UNIPARTY BY RESTORING REGULAR ORDER

the-unipartyThe Republican congressional leadership’s failure to repeal Obamacare has led to suggestions that, perhaps, they should have approached their task through “Regular Order.”

Since Congress has not operated under “Regular Order” at all since 2006, and with decreasing frequency in the decades before that, many may be excused for not knowing what these procedures are. Far from being arcane ephemera, they are the indispensable catalyst that makes American government responsible to the people.

Casting aside “Regular Order” was essential to the rise of the unaccountable administrative state and the near-sovereignty of party leaders, lobbyists, and bureaucrats.

Herewith, a summary of what “Regular Order” means, what purpose it once served, why and how it was shunned, and of what has ensued.  In short, if you want to end Republican-Democrat Uniparty collusion to frustrate what voters want, restore Regular Order.

THE MEDIA MELTDOWN OF TODAY STARTED TEN YEARS AGO

media-meltdownBetween 2008 and 2016, the media were unapologetic about their adoration of President Barack Obama. Now, they are energized by their thorough loathing of President Donald Trump.

In tragic fashion, the Hubris of deifying Obama has now come full circle to the Nemesis of demonizing Trump. The common denominator of the two extremes is the abandonment of disinterested reporting.

When Obama announced his candidacy for president in 2007, the media relinquished all pretenses of objectivity. Instead, journalists quickly started worshipping candidate Obama in a manner never quite seen before, not even in the days of the iconic liberal presidents like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

By the time of the 2016 presidential race, the media had fully lost their credibility as disinterested guardians of objective truth. The John Podesta Wikileaks trove revealed that a number of marquee reporters were openly colluding with Clinton to defeat Trump.

Once the media crossed the Rubicon of partisanship, there was no turning back. The unchecked ebullience that they had showed for Obama has now been replaced by an undisguised hatred for Donald Trump. Just as journalists saw no negative repercussions in their adoration of Obama, they are now able to denigrate the conservative populist Trump without consequences.

What caused the media's Trump meltdown? There are a variety reasons.

THE ISLAMOPHOBIA INDUSTRY KILLED JUSTINE DAMOND

justice-for-justineThis picture is of people marching in honor of Justine Damond of Australia, shot and killed by a Somali Moslem police officer without cause in Minneapolis on Saturday July 15.

What would justice for Justine truly be?  For the Islamophilic mayor of Minneapolis to the entire nation to recognize that Islamophobia kills.

It is a cherished fiction on the Left that there exists an “Islamophobia Industry,” a well-funded group of propagandists who spread hatred of Moslems solely to line their pockets.  This is as ridiculous as it is libelous, but there really is an Islamophobia Industry, and it is a group of well-funded propagandists.

In reality, however, it is not in the business of spreading “anti-Moslem bigotry.” Instead, it propagates the idea that Moslems in the U.S. are the recipients of widespread discrimination and harassment, and so must be accorded special accommodation and consideration.

That idea has just taken the life of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a woman from Sydney in the prime of her life at age 40.

IS RUSSIAGATE REALLY HILLARYGATE?

hillarygateAccording to an insider account –  Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign by Jonathan Allen, released in April – the Clinton team, put together the Russia Gate narrative within 24 hours of her defeat.

The Clinton account claimed that Russian hacking and election meddling caused her unexpected loss. That her opponent, Donald Trump, was a “puppet” of Putin.

Trump, they said, “encourages espionage against our people.” The scurrilous Trump dossier, prepared by a London opposition research firm, Orbis, and paid for by unidentified Democrat donors, formed a key part of the Clinton narrative: Trump’s sexual and business escapades in Russia had made him a hostage of the Kremlin, ready to do its bidding.

That was Hillary's way to say that Trump is really not President of the United States—a siren call adopted by the Democrat party and media.  So let’s talk about Hillary and the Orbis dossier.

RENEWMAGGEDON

100-jpn-solar-firmsStories like this are popping up all over the world.  Slowly, deliciously, like a leech starved of blood, the renewable energy industry is withering away and dying.

It can only survive through government enforced subsidies or bribe-incentives. Once those dry up, so does its trade. Renewables are, and always have been, a scam perpetrated by the few against the many.

This is a moment for Americans, once again, to savor just how lucky they are to have a President who doesn’t buy into this green nonsense. President Trump understands instinctively that renewables – apart from killing birds on an epic scale – are just rent-seeking with a smiley green face on top.

So, let’s savor the coming Renewmaggedon.

WHY IS RUSSIA AIMING MISSILES AT CHINA?

Credit: Dr. Roger N. McDermott

Credit: Dr. Roger N. McDermott

In early June 2017, Russian media reported that yet another Ground Forces missile brigade received the dreaded road-mobile 9K720 Iskander-M missile system (known in Russian military parlance as an “operational-tactical missile system,” or OTRK in short).

The brigade in question is the 29th Army’s newly established 3rd Missile Brigade, based in Russia’s colossal Eastern Military District (MD).

Formed in December 2016, this brigade was initially armed with the aging 9K79-1 Tochka-U tactical ballistic missile system, then quickly re-equipped with the Iskander-M as part of the Russian Defense Ministry’s plan to phase out all Tochka-Us by 2020.

The district’s three other brigades — the 107th, 103rd and 20th — received their Iskander-M OTRKs in 2013, 2015, and 2016, respectively.

As a result, there are presently more Iskander-M brigades in the Eastern MD than any other district; Russia’s other three military districts (Central, Southern, and Western) currently house two Iskander-M brigades each. What, then, is the purpose of these four brigades?

Note the map above.  All four border or are in missile range of China.

IT’S ABOUT TIME WE PUT AMERICA FIRST

[This is the text of President Trump’s Weekly Address on July 7.  Video below]

america-firstMy fellow Americans, 

Here at the White House, we are dedicating the month of July to three of our favorite words – MADE IN AMERICA.

For more than two centuries, those three beautiful words have been the world standard for quality, craftsmanship and excellence – and they still are today.

As President, one of my highest priorities is to restore American Manufacturing.  

For decades, American jobs have been ripped out of our communities, industries and towns have been stripped bare, and the entire communities have been uprooted and left.  Foreign nations got rich at America’s expense – and many special interests profited from this great global theft of American wealth.

Since taking the oath of office, our government has adopted a new philosophy: AMERICA FIRST – and believe me, it’s about time.  The era of economic surrender is over – and a new national pride is sweeping across our land. You see it, I see it, we all see it.

TRUMP WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS – HIS HATERS WILL FAIL BECAUSE OF WHO THEY’VE BECOME

radical-liberal-terrorReflect on this:

Almost every Trump initiative so far—more energy development, tax reform, deregulation, an end to illegal immigration, luring capital and jobs back into the United States, renegotiating trade deals, realist deterrence abroad, and mockery of political correctness—earns wide public approval.

Meanwhile…

Every time a MSNBC talking head, a NeverTrump New York pundit, an identity politics functionary, a Hollywood celebrity, a campus Pajama Boy, a Silicon Valley master of the universe, or a Democrat functionary attacks Trump, he ends up sounding either snobbish, hypocritical, or parochial—and thereby energizes the Trump populist message.

Trump is hated not because he is proposing radical new solutions, but because he believes that the last eight years were deviant and not characteristic of the American experiment.

Trump will succeed because his presidency is a return to normalcy.. His haters will fail because they have become rabidly extremist.

SAVING TANGIER

Tangier Island

Tangier Island

Tangier Island – America’s “soft crab capital” – is in the middle of Chesapeake Bay, about an hour’s boat ride from the Virginia mainland, rises only a few feet above the waterline and has been slowly eroded by the sea since it was first colonized in the 1600s.

Now its 500 remaining residents are desperate for federal support because it is on the verge of disappearing.

When they asked for support from Donald Trump to help them build a wall – a sea wall, this time, to hold back the eroding waves – the President called them to discuss the situation (6/14).

The story about Trump’s call prompted a barrage of hate from outsiders. Their crime, apparently, was to blame the island’s plight on natural erosion and not rising sea levels caused by man-made climate change.  And voting 87% for Trump.

CNN’S FAKE NEWS MACHINE

On April 10, mcorrupt-news-networkedia types were crowing that CNN had brought in Eric Lichtblau who had been, in the Washington Post’s words, at “the forefront of the New York Times’s reporting on the relationship between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.”

It was “an investment in investigative reporting and the sprawling Russia story”. It didn’t take long for the investigative investment to sprawl badly.

On June 25, Lichtblau resigned from CNN in a growing scandal over a Fake News story about a Trump associate.

"Eric will guide our coverage and thinking," Lex Haris, executive editor of CNN Investigates, had boasted. "And when he’s onto a investigation, he’ll still be reporting and writing too.”

Not for long. For Harris has joined Lichtblau on the unemployment line after the Fake News scandal.

CNN Investigates had been announced after President Trump’s inauguration. Its hit pieces had followed the same pattern as the Scaramucci attack that would be its undoing.

Go after a personality tipped for a job with the new administration. CNN Investigates had previously targeted Monica Crowley and Sheriff Dave Clarke with plagiarism accusations. But this time around, CNN’s anti-Trump unit had made a big mistake.

TRUMP’S REVENGE

trump-wrestling-cnnTrump’s self-made video parody that shows him wrestling down CNN has all the self-righteous pundits in an uproar, but it puts the heat where it belongs.

On CNN and the rest of them that round-the-clock give him no peace, no mercy, no fairness, no slack. In return, Trump goes Raw.  Like Truman once did.

Friends in Israel tell me that Trump is not alone. Benjamin Netanyahu, they say, gets the same treatment from the Hebrew press. Most times, even worse.

The same, maybe. Worse, impossible. 

On top of that, the obscenities coming from our TV news and talk shows are so violent that there is no choice but to say that we are past media bias and deep into media depravity.

It’s been so non-stop nasty that many of us have stopped reading and watching the coverage. We know what’s coming. We are braced. Trump gets even.  Trump’s revenge.

ROBERT MUELLER HAD BETTER BE INVESTIGATING JOHN PODESTA

john-podestaThis morning, the President sent this tweet from Brussels:

trump-tweet-070717As well he should.  For lawmakers failed to seize on an alarming development in the Russia collusion story last week, one that should spark serious and immediate congressional inquiry.

But it didn’t involve President Trump or his administration.

During a heated Fox Business interview with Maria Bartiromo (6/28), Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chief John Podesta made a series of misleading statements when questioned about his involvement in a company that received $35 million from the Russian government while Clinton served as secretary of state.

On Jan. 18, 2011, a small green-energy company named Joule Unlimited announced Podesta’s appointment to its board. Months later, Rusnano, a Kremlin-backed investment fund founded by Vladimir Putin, pumped $35 million into Joule.

That’s just for starters for collusion between Russia and Podesta.

THE UN MUST NOT MAKE IT NECESSARY FOR AMERICA TO USE MILITARY FORCE AGAINST NORTH KOREA

norks-military-force[This is the text of US Ambassador Nikki Haley to the UN Security Council on July 5]

To my friends on the Security Council, I must say that today is a dark day. It is a dark day because yesterday’s (7/04) actions by North Korea made the world a more dangerous place.

Their illegal missile launch was not only dangerous, but reckless and irresponsible. It showed that North Korea does not want to be part of a peaceful world. They have cast a dark shadow of conflict on all nations that strive for peace.

Make no mistake, North Korea’s launch of an ICBM is a clear and sharp military escalation. The North Korean regime openly states that its missiles are intended to deliver nuclear weapons to strike cities in the United States, South Korea, and Japan. And now it has a greater capacity to do so.

In truth, it is not only the United States and our allies that are threatened. North Korea’s destabilizing escalation is a threat to all nations in the region and beyond. Their actions are quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution.

The United States is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies. One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction.

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS DOOMED

  1. The Democrat establishment has vortexed the party's narrative energy into hysteria about Russia (a state with a lower GDP than South Korea).

dem-post-election-strategiesIt is starkly obvious that were it not for this hysteria, insurgent narratives of the type promoted by Bernie Sanders would rapidly dominate the party's base and its relationship with the public.

Without the "We didn't lose--Russia won" narrative, the party's elite and those who exist under its patronage would be purged for being electorally incompetent and ideologically passé.  The collapse of the Democrat vote over the last eight years is at every level, city, state, Congressional and now, presidential.

Yet this narrative has reached a dead end – and thus so has the Democrat Party as a political institution.

TRUMP DERANGEMENT IS ALL THE DEMOCRATS HAVE

trump-derangementIf they weren’t trying to destroy the president, Democrats would have to focus on an agenda most Americans don’t support.

By 1968, voters had tired of the failed Great Society of Lyndon Johnson. Four years later, the 1972 Nixon reelection re-emphasized that a doubled-down McGovern liberalism was even less of a viable agenda.

In that context, in 1974, obsessing on Watergate and a demonized Nixon were wise liberal alternatives to running on a positive left-wing vision, given the growing conservative backlash of the 1970s.  After Watergate and the Ford pardon, Jimmy Carter squeaked to a close victory and a one-term presidency — before the country tired of his strident liberalism poorly cloaked in conservative clothing.

Given this historical reminder, the current efforts at Trump character assassination may be the best — or only — progressive pathway back to political power.  Here is why – in excruciating (for Democrats) detail.

BERNIE SANDERS CAPITALIST PIG

sanders-capitalistWhen Bernie Sanders first came to Vermont, he bought a shack with a dirt floor with unemployment money. Last year, Bernie joined the company of Vermont’s 1% and bought his third home.

Nice to have a summer beachfront home on a private island on Lake Champlain, isn’t it?  Along with your other two homes, in Burlington VT and Washington DC. The money that Bernie used his way to break the $1 million mark and buy his way into the 1% came from the $27 donors he touted during his campaign. Other campaigns were funded by billionaires.

But the folks paying for Bernie’s private Delta 767 with its menu of herb crusted lamb loin, chocolate ganache, fine cheeses and white wine were ordinary people who would never be allowed to fly on it.

Yes, last year (April 2016), Bernie chartered a Delta 767 to fly him, his wife, friends, and campaign staff – less than 50 total – to Rome and back. Bernie could live large on their donations, but he couldn’t directly pocket their money. Not unless he figured out how to sell them something of his own. And that’s how Bernie joined the 1%.

THE PLOT AGAINST TRUMP EXPLAINED

survive-treasonA considerable portion of America’s permanent bureaucracy, including elements of its intelligence community, is engaged in an illegal and unconstitutional mutiny against the elected commander-in-chief, President Donald Trump.

Most of the Democrat Party and a fair sampling of the Republican Establishment wants to force Trump out of office, and to this end has undertaken an entrapment scheme to entice the president and his staff into actions which might be construed after the fact as obstruction of justice.

By means yet undisclosed, the mutineers forced Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn from office and now seek to bring down the president for allegedly obstructing an investigation of Gen. Flynn that arose in the first place from the entrapment scheme.

The Trump-Russia collusion story is nonsense, as its disseminators know better than anyone else. The object of the exercise is not to support the innuendo, but to launch an investigation which can provoke the White House into responses that might be construed as illegal.

The intelligence leaks involved in framing the story alone are probably sufficient grounds to put several dozen senior officials in federal prison for double-digit terms. That consideration gauges the scale of the problem: the mutineers have committed multiple felonies, and their downside should the mutiny go wrong is not ignominious retirement but hard time at Leavenworth.

MUELLER AS SPECIAL COUNSEL IS ILLEGITIMATE AND ILLEGAL

Best Buds – Comey and Mueller

Best Buds – Comey and Mueller

Why Robert Mueller should step down as special counsel or recuse himself from any aspect of the investigation involving James Comey:

*The appointment of Mueller under the special counsel statute is illegitimate. That's because the special counsel statute can only be triggered if there's an underlying criminal probe. News to the world: There ain't no underlying crime.

*The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has a conflict of interest in the case.  The rule has been interpreted to mean that even the appearance of a conflict is sufficient for disqualification. A conflict of interest is a situation in which an individual has competing interests or loyalties.

*Mueller and fired FBI Director James Comey are best buds. Family vacations, picnics, hours spent at the office, and cocktails after work. As former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom says, “Bob Mueller and Jim Comey are the best of friends and have been for over two decades.  It’s a massive conflict of interest.”

ANGER PRIVILEGE

The picture of irony?

The picture of irony?

The Left is always condemning “white privilege.”  We need to condemn the Left’s anger privilege.

If you want to know who really has privilege in a society and who doesn’t, follow the anger. There are people in this country who can safely express their anger. And those who can’t. If you’re angry that Trump won, your anger is socially acceptable. If you were angry that Obama won, it wasn’t. James Hodgkinson’s rage was socially acceptable. It continues to be socially acceptable for the Left even when he crossed the line into murder.

If you’re black and angry about the police, your anger is celebrated. If you’re white and angry about the Terror travel ban, the Paris Climate treaty, ObamaCare repeal or any Leftist cause, you’re on the side of the angry angels. But if you’re white and angry that your job is going to China or that you just missed being killed in a Muslim suicide bombing, your anger is unacceptable.

THE SOVIET RUSSIAN INVENTION OF THE GLOBAL WARMING SCAM

soviets-go-greenI love to expose left-wingers in the media and Congress who were soft on the old Soviet Union and are now acting like hard-liners on Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

It is a fascinating topic which exposes the duplicity of the left-wing obsession with Russia.  These people, who were soft on the Soviet Union and now hard on Russia, are the worst kind of hypocrites.

Their hypocrisy is further demonstrated by the abundant evidence that their global warming or climate change theory was initially conceived by Soviet Communists as a means by which to destroy the industrial base in the United States.

This disinformation theme was then embraced by the liberals now claiming to be tough on Russia.  Here’s how it happened.

TRUMP AND GERMANY’S COMING GREEN DISASTER

trump-and-merkelWhat Trump repeatedly promised to do during the election campaign has been done, and America is no longer part of the Paris Agreement.  

Predictably, the mainstream media here and across the Atlantic have again gone totally unhinged with prophesies of doom for America, the imminent demise of the Trump administration, and the inevitable rise of Germany and Chancellor Merkel as the new leader of the free world.

This may indeed be a watershed event, but not at all as the Left here and there imagines it.  

Contrary to the fervent desires of the Leftist Elites, it will result not in the political collapse of Trump's America, but in the exposure of the incredible hypocrisy and ultimate weakness of the socialistic environmental schemes characterizing today's "European project."  

This is especially true for Germany with Merkel making catastrophic mistakes that require urgent and costly repairs.  One stands out as particularly daunting: the wholesale effort to switch Germany to renewable energy, known as the energy transition, or Energiewende.

PRESIDENT TRUMP MUST NOT ALLOW A JUDICIAL COUP TO USURP THE CONSTITUTION

jefferson-letter-to-jarvisYesterday (6/12), the Ninth Circuit, on the basis of a Trump tweet, blocked the President’s travel ban.

When President Trump tweeted that his measure to protect Americans from Islamic terror was a “travel ban” and that it should never have been watered down, he was right.

Maybe the Supreme Court will uphold the Constitution. Maybe it won’t. The track record has been decidedly mixed. And this is an area where the courts had no actual right to intervene.

Immigration is in the hands of Congress and the White House. It is not up to judges to decide who can come to America.  If this judicial coup succeeds, elected officials will lose their authority over immigration.  That means that the American people will lose all control over immigration.

Federal courts have been unconstitutionally treating states like this for far too long, intervening in everything from elections to prison populations, but now they’re using the general anti-Trump hysteria to assert judicial supremacy over the elected branches of government.

If this judicial coup is allowed to stand, anything that any White House official or member of Congress says at any time in the past, can and will be used by Federal courts to seize control over any policy.  And then we will be living under a permanent reign of judicial terror.

TRUMP’S CHEESE IN THE MAZE STRATEGY

cheese-in-the-mazeOperation Overlord, the most successful amphibious invasion in history, was in no small part successful due to the most effective deception and disinformation campaign in history.

The key to the Allies completely fooling the Germans as to the real location of the invasion (Normandy) as opposed to where Adolf Hitler thought the troops would land (Calais)—thus meaning all the German generals who wanted their jobs had to think that as well—was the Allies knew what Hitler believed and just played to his preconceptions.

Flash forward from June 1944 to February 2017.  The Trump team had known for months that, far from getting even a reasonably fair shake from the Fake News Media (and even conservative media), they would face the most blistering, unrelenting, baseless and usually cowardly attacks of any Presidential administration since Abraham Lincoln’s.

Team Trump also understood that they needed a window of a few months to lay the groundwork for all of this, to get the necessary people in place, and to begin drafting all the paperwork necessary.

So they came up with the “Cheese in the Maze” deception program.

THE CHOICE BETWEEN TRUMP’S TRAVEL BAN AND MORE ISLAMIC TERRORISM

Faces of Evil: The London Bridge Moslem Terrorists

Faces of Evil: The London Bridge Moslem Terrorists

“2,000 plus cases.”

That was the most overlooked revelation to come from the May 3 Senate testimony of the then-FBI director. While the media parsed every Comey hiccup to bolster its election conspiracy theories, it ignored that number.

Comey stated that there were around 2,000 terrorism investigations. 1,000 of those came from “home grown violent extremism” with no evidence of contact with foreign terrorists. Another 1,000 had "some contact with foreign terrorists." 300 from that 2,000 had come to America as refugees.

Two-thirds of the refugee terrorists were from Iraq. The other third were mainly from the six countries named in President Trump’s travel pause which left-wing activist judges have unconstitutionally halted.

10,000 British soldiers are now deployed on British city streets after Manchester and the London Bridge.  A Muslim terrorist network in London, Paris or New York is as much of a military issue as one in Baghdad or Beirut.

Which means: Every effort to oppose President Trump’s travel pause is a vote for soldiers in the streets and car bombs every morning.

AN EXAMPLE OF COGNITIVE DISSONANCE

I need to tell you a secret.  What TTP dubbed my “Liberal Head Exploding Cartoon of the Week” (HFR 05/10/17) was created as a cognitive dissonance trap.

I wanted to see if I could make an argument about the reliability of economic models and dupe irrational people into labeling me a climate denier. 

My hypothesis was that I could make a public argument about the reliability of economic models, and partisans on the climate debate would not be able to see the word economic on the page. Literally.

Sure enough, my experiment worked like a charm.  Here’s how.

TRUMP DELIVERS

trump-deliversUnder promise and over deliver.

As a businessman, Trump knows that those are the rules. And as president that’s just what he did yesterday (6/01) in his inspirational speech about pulling out of the Paris climate agreement.

It was inspirational because it articulated better than any world leader has ever done before why environmentalism is in fact such a harmful creed.

Rather than get bogged down in the “science” of climate change — an elephant trap so arranged by climate alarmists to make anyone who disagrees with them look ignorant or “anti-science” — he cut to the chase and talked about the important stuff that hardly ever gets mentioned by all the other politicians, for some reason: the fact that the climate change industry is killing jobs.

This argument ought to be low hanging fruit to any half-way intelligent politician: it’s such an obvious way of connecting with the workers.

Yet Trump is the only one who has ever said it. And hearing him say it was a reminder of why it was that he won the presidential election. He connects with his people in a way that so many politicians just don’t.

HOW CAN SOME CONSERVATIVES STILL BE NEVER-TRUMPERS?

destroy-the-presidentWhen people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options:

1) Cease admiring them or 2) try to understand them and change their minds.

My choice is option two. But to try to change their minds, I must first try to understand their thinking.

I have concluded that there are a few reasons that explain conservatives who were Never-Trumpers during the election, and who remain anti-Trump today.

The first and, by far, the greatest reason is this: They do not believe that America is engaged in a civil war, with the survival of America as we know it at stake.

While they strongly differ with the left, they do not regard the left-right battle as an existential battle for preserving our nation. On the other hand, I, and other conservative Trump supporters, do.

THE HUNGER BONDS

no-comidaInvesting often creates moral dilemmas over goals: Should we aim to do well or to do good? Is it appropriate to invest in tobacco companies? Or in companies that sell guns to drug gangs?

The returns of the JP Morgan Emerging Market Bond Index (EMBI+) are heavily influenced by what happens in Venezuela.

The reason is simple: while Venezuela represents only about 5% of the index, it accounts for about 20% of its yield -- because the yield on Venezuelan debt is about five times larger than that of other countries in the index, a reflection of the huge risk premium that Venezuela faces.

As has been widely reported in the media, Venezuela is experiencing one of the most calamitous economic collapses ever, accompanied by massive doses of political repression and human-rights violations.

So investing in the EMBI+ means that you rejoice when Wall Street analysts inform you that the country is literally starving its people in order to avoid restructuring your bonds. It is exactly the same with Goldman Sachs.

THE LOOMING TRAGEDY OF AN ISLAMIST INDONESIA

islamist-indonesiaThe 15-year-old school girl’s eyes filled with tears as she put down her mobile phone. Her best friend at school, the friend she did everything together with, had just called her.

“We can no longer be friends,” she had said. “Allah does not allow me to be friends with people like you.”

This conversation took place in a city in Indonesia with a reputation for tolerance. The two girls were students at a high school described as “the most tolerant” in the city. The caller who ended the friendship is a Muslim, the devastated recipient of the call a Christian.

An incredible tragedy is unfolding in the world’s largest Muslim country, where its democratic government and culture of tolerance is being destroyed by fanatic Islamists.  Can they be stopped in time?  And is there anyone in Indonesia with the courage to do so?

GOODBYE ISIS – HELLO LOSERS!

loserPresident Trump just gave ISIS its new name: Losers! Short for Evil Losers!

If you think that’s no big deal, you’re wrong. It’s a big deal. This is – literally – weapons-grade persuasion from the most powerful Master Persuader of our time.

President Trump’s clever nicknames for people are not random. They are deeply engineered for visual/auditory impact and future confirmation bias.

In this case, the visuals will be provided by future terror attacks. That reinforces the “evil” part, obviously.

But more importantly, the Losers! will be doing nothing but losing on the battlefield from now until “annihilation.” They are surrounded, and the clock is ticking.

Quickly, name one other way you could label/insult the Losers! that would be as powerful as the word Loser! You can’t do it with any other name or insult that is also repeatable in polite company.

What kinds of people join the Losers!? Mostly young males. And you know what brand young males do not want stamped on their foreheads?  Right: Losers!

If you call them monsters, they like it. If you call them ISIS or ISIL they put it on a flag and wave it around. If you call them non-Muslim, it just rolls off their backs because they have Korans and stuff.  Loser! is different. No one joins the Loser! movement.

ISRAEL LOVES DONALD TRUMP – WITH GOOD REASON

trump-make-israel-greatPresident Trump’s visit to Israel over the last two days (5/22-23) was a reminder to Israel, a nation of miracles, that miracles still happen. 

For the longest time – those eight long years of Obama – it must have seemed that the nightmare would never end.

Enter Trump and everything is different. America is back, and so is Israel. The slump is over, finished. For Israel, how refreshing to welcome an American President as a friend. Modern Israel will never be quite the same ever since this visit.

The entire world saw an American President bestow kindness, friendship, respect and protection to the Jewish State and let no one (like Iran) try anything foolish. It’s like that when the biggest guy on the block puts his arm around you for the entire neighborhood to see.

This was not the time for politics. It was the time for symbols and it was a time for television to broadcast those symbols, however limited, in America.

Trump’s magnificent farewell speech at the Israel Museum roused the audience to its feet when he said, “Iran routinely calls for Israel’s destruction – not with Donald J. Trump.”

 CNN did not play that, neither did MSNBC or ABC, CBS or NBC. Fox News and the BBC did.  And so does TTP -- full video and text below.

ISLAMIST-APPEASING POLICE HAVE THE BLOOD OF CHILDREN ON THEIR HANDS

Murdered by Islamic terrorists and their appeasers

Murdered by Islamic terrorists and their appeasers

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena Monday evening (5/22), the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia.

While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah,” Manchester police were busy with more important things.

The Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are one of only two police forces in the UK to list Islamophobia as a hate crime category.  You might read that sentence again to let it sink in.

Earlier this year, GMP Chief Constable Ian Hopkins honored Tell Mama (“Mama” stands for “Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks”) for fighting Islamophobia.

The Islamophobia lie killed 22 people in Manchester. It happened on the watch of the GMP.

No one takes Islamophobia more seriously than the Greater Manchester Police. When Muslim “sex grooming” gangs were abusing little girls in Rochdale, the GMP dutifully covered it up. On one of the recorded interviews, a police officer can be heard yawning as a girl describes her abuse.
