AG Barr Puts Swamp on Notice: “Government Power Was Used to Spy on American Citizens” [Video]

Democrats are about to find out that Attorney General Barr is no Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump is no Mitt Romney. There are an awful lot of people who are shaking in their boots right now, and they should be. A bright light is about to be shined on a plot that was never supposed to be exposed, because Donald Trump was never supposed to win the election, and the cockroaches are beginning to scatter…

Charges Dropped Against Florida Man, Because the First Amendment Protects His “I Eat Ass” Bumper Sticker

Certified Florida Man Shane Dillon’s choice of bumper sticker has produced a unique victory in the fight for free speech.

The 23-year-old Lake City resident was driving along U.S. Highway 90 last Sunday when a deputy from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office noticed his “I eat ass” bumper sticker. The sticker, the deputy concluded, violated the state’s obscenity law. After Dillon refused to remove part of the sticker to censor the word “ass,” citing his First Amendment right to free speech, the deputy arrested him and charged him with “obscene writing on vehicles and resisting an officer without violence.”

On Thursday, the State Attorney’s Office said that it would not prosecute Dillon for either charge. Any prosecution, the office determined, could be met with a valid First Amendment defense.

Did Poynter Plagiarize the Harvard Law School Library List, or Just Collaborate With it?

If you are one of the 500-plus Conservative-leaning news sources relieved that the Poynter Institute has been forced to scrap its list of “unreliable” news sources, you’re being conned.

‘Poynter forced to scrap ‘unreliable news’ list targeting conservative outlets after outcry’ (Fox News Front Page Headline: May 3, 2019).

Don’t take Fox News’ headline to heart, anybody.

After 2 days of promoting their list, heralded in Fox front page headlines as being “forced to scrap”, Poynter deleted the list and issued an ‘apology’.

But if you are one of the smeared, you can see for yourself that the Conservative black list is still up there, and likely always will be.

The best analogy for what Poynter has done should be: Once the bell’s been rung, there’s no unringing it.

Poynter’s Conservative Black List—really an abridged version of the 2017 Harvard Library Conservative Black List, (still on line)— hasn’t been scrapped, it’s merely been archived for future use.

Ex-CIA Guy Jailed for 20 Years for China Leak

Former CIA intelligence officer Kevin Patrick Mallory, 62, of Leesburg, Virginia, was sent down for two decades on Friday for selling American national defense secrets to a Chinese spy. Some of that leaked information included “unique identifiers for human sources who had helped the United States government,” according to prosecutors.

The traitor was given a Samsung Galaxy smartphone by his Middle Kingdom handler Michael Yang for covert communications: Mallory, who is fluent in Mandarin, discussed Uncle Sam’s hush-hush information with Yang using the mobe, and used it to securely transmit at least five classified US government documents to Chinese intelligence. He was also spotted scanning secret and top-secret materials onto a microSD card in a FedEx store near where he lived.

“Former US intelligence officer Kevin Patrick Mallory will spend the next 20 years of his life in prison for conspiring to pass national defense information to a Chinese intelligence officer,” said Assistant Attorney General John Demers. “This case is one in an alarming trend of former US intelligence officers being targeted by China and betraying their country and colleagues.”

Illinois Governor Wants to Hike Taxes: What Else Isn’t News?

The Illinois Policy Institute reports Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office is using a major capital bill as a vehicle to grease lawmakers for a progressive income tax amendment. But the tax hikes to pay for it would make Illinoisans’ gas tax burden the second highest in the nation.

“Well, you know, not unlike Christianity when it is motivating someone to do something extreme.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg claimed Friday that Christianity had its own extremist factions of faith similar to that of radical Islam in the Middle East.

Asked about the differences between Shia extremism followed in Iran versus Sunni extremism, the 2020 presidential candidate immediately compared radical Islam to Christianity.

“Well, you know, not unlike Christianity when it is motivating someone to do something extreme. It can have a thousand different flavors,” he said. “The real question is what’s going on with the regime, the government, that’s given the power and the apparatus of the state and intelligence service and a military, and what do they do with their ideology?”

EU Crisis: Merkel’s Plea to Fight Far-Right — ‘They Want to Destoy Europe!’

GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel has issued a plea for all of Europe to fight back against far-right movements.

The chancellor condemned the rise of populism — a political movement that strives to appeal to the average Joe and fight the elite — in Europe and accused far-right parties of destroying the core values of the EU. She said: “We’re having to deal with populist movements that in many areas are contemptuous of these values, who want to destroy the Europe of our values. We have to stand up to this decisively. What falls under this is that minorities are not protected, that basic human rights are called into question and that corruption plays a role in politics.”

EU Takeover: Eurosceptic Alliance Promise No Confidence Vote in Juncker — ‘Let’s Not Wait’

EUROSCEPTIC parties across the continent are teaming up to disrupt the “undemocratic” and “ambiguous” European Union to give the people of Europe more power to decide their own fate.

For the first time in the history of the European Union, the Brussels bloc will have its “enemies” running together behind the same message: to save Europe you have to move away from the European Union. With Brexit dominating domestic politics in the UK, populists and anti-EU forces around the continent are seeking to gain more power than ever, topping polls and surprising established pro-European parties with huge support by the public. The European Commission appears to be the number one target for eurosceptic leaders hoping to gain a foothold in the European Parliament. Italian Lega MEP candidate Antonio Maria Rinaldi pledged to table a motion of no confidence in Jean-Claude Juncker’s Commission immediately if he is elected. President Juncker’s term will be over at the end of October, but the Italian economist argued the sooner the failed eurocrat goes, the better.

France’s ‘Yellow Vests’ Mark Six Months of Protests With Numbers Dwindling

Reims (France) (AFP) — “Yellow vest” protesters turned out across France Saturday to mark six months of rallies against President Emmanuel Macron’s policies, but with their numbers dwindling, according to a government tally.

A day after Macron appeared to draw a line under the movement, yellow jacket activists — named after the fluorescent vests they wear — marched in Paris and several other cities for the 27th consecutive week.

The count from the interior ministry — routinely dismissed by yellow jackets — put the numbers across France at 15,500, of whom 1,600 marched in Paris. That was down again from last week’s count of 18,600, suggesting a steady decline.

The yellow jackets’ own tally put the nationwide total at 41,000.

He told supporters he had “always believed in miracles” as partial results showed the Liberal-National Coalition close to a majority.

Belgian Authorities Clear Migrants From ‘No-Go’ Transit Station

Belgian officials announced that all migrants have been cleared from a Brussels transit station that had become a de facto ‘no-go zone’ due to their presence and a reported outbreak of diseases.

“On the initiative of Minister of Asylum and Migration, Maggie De Block, and thanks to a collaboration between various authorities, officials and organizations, the Brussels North Station has been evacuated today,” Minister De Block’s office said in a press release on Friday.

“The transmigrants will first receive shelter in the homeless centers in Brussels. There they receive customized information from Fedasil about voluntary return or asylum procedures. However, those who return to the North Station will be transferred to a closed asylum center.”

Brussels-North, one of the city’s busiest transportation hubs, had been overrun by illegal migrants, presenting security and health hazards that ultimately led to a recent suspension of bus services by local unions who cited an alleged spread of malaria, tuberculosis, and scabies.

Maxine Waters: Trump’s Immigration Policy Favoring Skilled, English-Speaking Workers is ‘Racist’

Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called President Donald Trump’s immigration policy “racist.”

Thursday the president called for immigration reform that would favor skilled, English-speaking workers.

Waters said, “There should be comprehensive immigration reform and not immigration reform that is based on exciting and inciting those people who have negative thoughts about others coming across our border. And basically working to use that information to promote himself in a campaign. I think it is—some of that is very racist. It is not keeping with what this country is supposed to be all about.”

1987 LGBTQ Demands Become Law in the Equality Act

In 1987, homosexual activist Steve Warren published a chilling article titled, “Warning to the homophobes.”

“Henceforth, homosexuality will be spoken of in your churches and synagogues as an “honorable estate.”

“You can either let us marry people of the same sex, or better yet abolish marriage altogether. You will be expected to offer ceremonies that bless our sexual arrangements…You will also instruct your people in homosexual as well as heterosexual behavior, and you will go out of your way to make certain that homosexual youths are allowed to date, attend religious functions together, openly display affection, and enjoy each others sexuality without embarrassment or guilt.

If any of the older people in your midst object, you will deal with them sternly, making certain they renounce their ugly and ignorant homophobia or suffer public humiliation.

You will also make certain that laws are passed forbidding discrimination against homosexuals and heavy punishments are assessed….

Finally, we will in all likelihood, want to expunge a number of passages from your Scriptures and rewrite others, eliminating preferential treatment of marriage and using words that will allow for homosexual interpretation of passages describing biblical lovers such as Ruth and Boaz or Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.

Warning: If all these things do not come to pass quickly, we will subject Orthodox Jews and Christians to the most sustained hatred and vilification in recent memory.

We have captured the liberal establishment and the press. We have already beaten you on a number of battlefields.

You have neither the faith nor the strength to fight us, so you might as well surrender now.”

LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline’s evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. History. The Equality Act is fully supported by house Democrats. If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous tyrannical demand in LBGTQ enforcer Steve Warren’s 1987 article will become reality.

[Comment: Equality Act is a tyrannical act aka pretend law. It violates the constitution and should be flushed down the toilet where it belongs.]

Democrats Unanimous as House Passes Bill Forcing Schools to Let Male Athletes Compete in Girls’ Sports

Discriminatory against women

The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.

Eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which had unanimous Democratic support.

The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law.

Among other things, that would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

Republican Florida Rep. Greg Steube introduced a last-minute amendment to the bill that would have preserved Title IX’s protections of female athletic teams, but Democrats rejected it.

Every House Democrat but one co-sponsored the legislation. The only Democrat who wasn’t a co-sponsor, Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, announced his support for the bill following pressure from left-wing activists.

Just When Everyone Thought AOC Reached Peak Stupidity… She Says This About the GOP and Christians

Today, the woman who proves every day she’s dumber than a bag of rocks tweeted about how the Republican Party, who is literally fighting for babies who have no voice, doesn’t care about babies. For extra emphasis, the freshman Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) added, “especially brown, black or poor ones.”

In 2012, Life News destroyed AOC and the Democrat Party’s false narrative about not caring about minority babies, when they reported about how the abortion business targets blacks and Hispanic babies. The report showed 79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American and/or Hispanic/Latino communities.

The childish, and many times petulant, freshman lawmaker claimed if the GOP cared about children, they would co-sponsor her New Green Deal scheme that comes with a hefty cost. According to the Daily Signal, OAC’s proposed New Green Deal would cause 1.4 million jobs to be lost, would cause our economy to take a $3.9 trillion hit and would create a total income loss of more than $40,000 for a family of four. How exactly does that help poor children and children of color?

Marxist Democrats Delete God From House Proceedings

Atheism is a natural and inseparable part of Marxism, of the theory and practice of scientific socialism. Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism. —Vladimir Lenin

The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed. —Karl Marx

Communism is a religion that is inspired, directed and motivated by the Devil himself who has declared war against Almighty God. —Billy Graham

The campaign and election of President Donald Trump has proven to be the ultimate expose of the Democratic Party’s long ago shift to Marxism. For decades they’ve hidden their true globalist goals by using euphemistic terms and double speak to lull the citizenry. A prime example is the “Affordable Care Act,” which is not at all affordable for the middle class when insurance deductibles have risen into multiple thousands.

The Leftists that were hounded into hiding by the 1950’s “Red Scare” have rebounded with a vengeance and heavily impacted American society. The demise of God is their main target. Over a half-century (many believe much longer), the socialists ended up taking over the universities, media, and cultural institutions and permeated them with their “Cultural Marxist totalitarian” ways. They have become effective “anti-anti-Communists,” whose chief weapon is character assassination…

The majority party in the House of Representatives has removed God. It has deleted the Almighty from as many Congressional proceedings as possible, including the swearing in of witnesses.

When Congressman Mike Johnson (R-LA) raised a point of parliamentary inquiry as to why witnesses did not say, “so help me God” during their swearing in, Rep. Johnson asked Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) to please have the witnesses do it again including the “so help me God.” Cohen said, “I don’t think it’s necessary and I don’t want to assert my will over other people.” Then Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) pipes up with, “If any witness objects, he should not be asked to identify himself. We do not have religious tests for office or for anything else and we should let it go at that.”

Well, excuse the daylights out of me Reps. Cohen and Nadler, but we have used this swearing in for over 200 years. As Rep. Johnson said, “It goes back to our founding history and it’s been part of our tradition for more than two centuries, and I don’t know that we should abandon it now.” Watch the two-minute video.

School Announces Tariff on Students Not Wearing Pro-LGBT Clothing

Extra donations demanded from teens not openly supporting gays, transgenders

An Australian public school landed in hot water after announcing that students not wearing pro-LGBT clothing on a coordinated dress-down day would be expected to double their ‘voluntary’ charitable donations.

Greystanes High School in New South Wales notified pupils and parents that on “Rainbow Mufti Day,” those not openly participating in ‘International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia’ would be pressed for increased contributions to the National Youth Mental Health Foundation.

The notice was delivered via a Facebook post, which has since been edited, as well as a letter allegedly sent to students and parents.

[Comment: Sure, the school letter “accidentally” gave the impression it was mandatory. A sleazy tactic designed to intimidate students to donating.]

Stop the Dangerous Fake ‘Equality Act’

At this moment a very dangerous bill gaining a lot of attention in congress and championed by the House Democrats called the Equality Act, H.R. 5 and in the Senate S. 788 “To prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and for other purposes.” If this were to pass (and it could with the help of some Senate Rinos) it would force virtually every institution in society, including religious institutions, “to hire, serve (bake cakes), and promote homosexuals and individuals confused about their gender.” Other results would be that Christian and Jewish adoption agencies will be required to place children with homosexuals or trans-genders, and Christian ministers and priests as well as rabbis will be required to marry two men or two women. Counsellors of faith will be banned from helping people with unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion. Everyone will have to affirm the LGBT agenda or face repercussions such as losing tax exempt status or worse. This piece of legislation is completely unconstitutional but has that ever stopped them from trying?

Did any of you really send your elected representative to your State House or to Washington DC to fight for this “LBGT……movement”? I didn’t either. It’s not a burning concern for many. Then why the frenzied drive to constantly ram this agenda home? So I started to take a look around to see how we got into this fix and I ran across this little item.

The Communist Takeover of America: 45 Declared Goals (Congressional Record, 1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35, January 10, 1963

Of these 45 goals which are still part of the congressional record, I will list only a few for you to draw your own conclusions as to why we are in the state we are in.

Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. (done) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. (done) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. (done) Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” (done)

If you read the entire list you will be stunned at how many of these 45 goals are in place and have been for decades. It covers the takeover of the Arts, the churches, the press and all forms of media, the Courts and basically all aspects of American culture. Were any of you aware that such a list was recorded in the congressional record 56 years ago? Me neither.

You can read entire list here. (www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1561529/posts)

The Make-Believe World of a Transgender Powerlifter

Theblaze.com reported this week “Powerlifter Mary Gregory — a biological male who competes as a female — made headlines last month after breaking multiple women’s powerlifting records, which sparked widespread outrage.”

But after a review, the Raw Powerlifting Federation has stripped the weightlifter of the titles because they determined Gregory was not eligible to compete as a woman.

Some things are real. Some things are make-believe. Knowing the difference is critically, crucially important.

Let’s imagine that the X and Y-chromosomes no longer have anything to do with the biological sex of a human. From now on you are free to medically treat males and females however you want. Cervical and prostate cancer screenings are no longer necessary because reproductive organs are just an old delusion of gender-phobic, reproductive tyranny.

To act upon this train of thought is very dangerous and will cause great harm… probably fatal harm. The example I just used is easy to agree with because the physical laws of the universe — like the laws governing health and reproduction — are quite easy for us to discern.

    • Also not welcome here. We aren’t a public forum; we ask that commenters stay within the normal speech codes since we have homeschoolers reading our website. The general rule is, “would you say this to your parent or child, or to a stranger’s parent or child?” The use of temperate language is becoming a lost art but while we’re here, courteous discourse will be required.

  1. “The Freedom Party leader stepped down after secret video footage emerged.
    The video appears to show him discussing government contracts with an alleged Russian investor.”

    The alleged Russian investor was in fact a Latvian. Just like the “Russian collusion” turned out to be Ukrainian. BTW at least for Bulgarian former party bosses, ministers etc who managed to transform their power into real money, Austria has been a safe haven since at least the 80-ies. The red-green president who was elected by a very dubious margin seems the last person in Austria to have the moral grounds for “indignation” etc.

  2. “The Freedom Party leader stepped down after secret video footage emerged. The video appears to show him discussing government contracts with an alleged Russian investor.”

    So, this 2017 video emerges a matter of days before the EU elections when the Populist parties are set to give the establishment a bloody nose. Why now, I wonder, after all this time?

    It stinks of an establishment set up.

    • 2017 it came out that the SPÖ made a Dirt Campaign-the engaged a guy called Siberstein(was later arrested in Israel for other things).So it can be that the SPÖ was afraid at this time to use this material,but now was a good time for it.

    • I agree with you: the timing of the release of a two-year-old video stinks to high heaven. But he must have known that footage was out there? Why not take the initiative and do the first reveal of the situation? That would have been less damaging.

      Many politicians don’t think strategically. Too bad.

    • Of course it is. The video has been released by german leftard newsmedia Spiegel and Süddeutsche Zeitung. In Berlin they did not like austrian government going too populist, despite kurz having a double face and being full member of EPP. Strache is blackmailable so he had to resign. Now the elections for FPÖ are compromised.

  3. Live Journal Comment

    History Schwarzenegger (on the American family name sounds like a black nigga) is very indicative. The man arrives in a country where he is welcome, he sees friendly faces. Suddenly, when witnesses hit him. This is in front of witnesses, and without them they could have shot or stabbed with a knife. And here it turns out that there is no protection and never will be. The attacker was grabbed, but not punished or punished so that the next person wishing to kick or stab with a knife will not be afraid to repeat. And no guarantees that the story does not happen again. Or you seem to be needed, but you have become old, so they will kill you, because then you can boast: “I killed the first Russian at the age of 16” (Kadyrov’s words)
    That is, sincere smiles and outward signs of respect do not save. Friendship oaths cost nothing. The system of cleansing the country from the necessary (!) Foreigners works without a miss. And then people smiling at the same Schwarzenegger come to your country and teach tolerance. Schwarzenegger, by the way, is 71 years old. Even this did not stop. Schwarzenegger pretends that he was not offended at all, that is, he de facto justifies the subsequent attacks on whites.

    • Your analysis is spot on. I never thought about the etymology of his name.

      What struck me (so to speak) about his reaction to being hit really hard in the back is how he seemed to go numb. No affect, a ‘freeze’ moment before he got out of there.

      Arnold is/was an actor so his public persona is important to him. Thus his wooden smile and quick exit from that gym. I don’t think anyone was fooled by his numb “acceptance” of the severe blow to his back; he was doing damage control in the only way he knew. I’ve never been a particular fan of Schwarzenegger, but I thought he handled the situation as best he could. My guess is that he saw a doctor to assess the damage to his spine. At the age of 71 his bones are more fragile than they used to be.

      I can’t help but wonder how a 71-year-old Clint Eastwood would have instinctually responded…

    A poster of Berlin’s Komsomol members (Jusos, “Young Socialists”) a week before the European Parliament elections: “Cool down nationalism in cold blood.”
    But we understand that the bearers of the idea of ​​”united Europe” do not eliminate ideas with ideas, but their carriers. Democracy, the EU, the dream of the Russian “liberals” (red, Bolsheviks), the end of the second decade of the 21st century. Welcome to the lair of democracy and human rights!

    They constantly call opponents of the monstrous-totalitarian EU [SSR] “anti-Europeans” and even “enemies of Europe”, replacing “Europe” with the Orwellian project of Brussels. Just like a classic: “War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is power.”
