After Threats of Violence, California Cemetery Removes Memorial to Confederate Dead

Will exhuming and destroying corpses be next?

Not content with destroying monuments to Confederate soldiers left wing fascists demanded that a marker for Confederate dead in a California cemetery called Hollywood Forever be removed.

Threats of violence and vandalism, typical of the hate filled left, were made if the marker was not removed. No word on when they will demand destruction of the corpses.

Once again, a small, violent minority is demanding that their voice be heard or else!

Meanwhile, a poll by National Public Radio shows that most Americans do NOT support the destruction of monuments and symbols of American history:

But this small minority of violent, left wing fascists do NOT respect the views of the majority of Americans. Like the Taliban and ISIS who are famous for erasing history they find objectionable, the left resorts to violence if their radical demands are not met.

At some point future Americans may erect monuments to memorialize the brave heroes who stood up to this vile left wing fascist minority. Statues of Trump will be in big demand!

Emboldened by Trump Haters Man Armed with Gun Pepper Sprays Civil War Re-enactors

Left wing fascists are now not only emboldened but encouraged!

 A left wing commenter at this blog has said it. If there is an individual or group of people that someone on the left finds disagreeable then they are entitled, even encouraged to take violent action towards that person or group.

It's happening across the country. Whether it's on a college campus where rioters shut down free speech or earlier this year in Alexandria where a left wing extremist Trump hater tried to assassinate GOP members of Congress at baseball practice. The level of violence and hate has spread. But when Trump points that out he is assailed by the mainstream media which appears to be enabling much of the left wing hate.

Now this:
The face of hate. Karl Smith. Armed with gun and pepper spray
The attack occurred during a parade in the small town of Newton, North Carolina at which military units participated along with Civil War re-enactors. Smith, from a nearby town, pepper sprayed the re-enactors.

Full details are here.

So now you have it. If you belong to the extreme left you are entitled to take violent action towards any person or group you find offensive. Whether it's a peaceful parade, Klan rally, college speech or GOP members of Congress. The wave of left wing fascist violence will continue to grow until the mainstream media recognizes that Trump was right. There is hate and violence on BOTH SIDES! We saw it in action again in the small town of Newton on Thursday.

The left wing fascist movement may have started in Berkeley,
California but it's now spread nationwide. Even to small towns.

Left Wing Fascists Attack Monuments They Dislike and Silence Speech

They behave just like the Taliban and ISIS!

Here's the face of left wing fascism in Durham North Carolina. No white supremacists or neo-Nazis anywhere in sight but this left wing mob decided THEY, not the citizens of the town had the right to remove historic statues.

Chanting: "No KKK. No fascist USA," these extremists, historical terrorist don't seem to understand the irony that THEY ARE THE FASCISTS!



Meanwhile, in Chicago a statue of Abraham Lincoln is set on fire and in Washington, DC the Lincoln Memorial was vandalized. Do they fools not know Lincoln freed the slaves? Calls are to remove the Jefferson Memorial and to strike George Washington from the name of public spaces.

It's obvious these people want to erase history and then what? Put up statues of Che Guevara to take their place?  I hear the Republics of the former Soviet Union keep a surplus of statues of Lenin. This rabid mob might like a few of those!

This is where the left wing mob mentality has led us. It's been enabled by the media that can only see one side and damnation to any reporter who dares to report otherwise. Somehow they will blame Trump for it!

Where is this going to stop?





It's a short step to go from destroying monuments above to destroying speech. And the irony is that the people claiming to be anti-fascists are the bookburners!

The same spirit that inspired Nazis to burn books is alive today on the far left!

Want to Purge the Nation of our Racist Past? Start by Getting Rid of Democrat Party, The Party of Jim Crow and the KKK

But of course protesters today want to revise that bit of history and forget the REAL past!

While left wing fascists are busy pulling down monuments faster than the Taliban they might want to get rid of the Democrat Party which is the historical home of slavery, the KKK and Jim Crow.  Rush Limbaugh had the idea and I'm happy to expand on it!

Consider this:


End racism and hate by aborting the Democrat Party!

NY Times Reporter Forced to Change Story After Correctly Identifying "Hate" Groups on Both Sides of Charlottesville Riot

Once again, fake news is determined to excuse left wing hate which is the reason why violence occurred in the first place!

If you watched the live reporting from Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday you saw gangs of thugs from Black Lies Matter armed with baseball bats and weapons rushing toward those who had a permit to protest the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee.

Reporters who were on the scene also observed and reported the same. But now, they're being bullied and pressured to report only half the truth. That's why we call it FAKE NEWS!

Here's an example:
After posting that, Stolberg got "educated" and revised her reporting:

Left wing loons with bats. No "hate" there right?
Apparently hate and violence is perfectly fine if you're part of the extreme left!

Obama Ignored Hate Views from Black Lives Matter Activist Who Killed 5 Cops in Dallas and Met with BLM Leaders at the White House

Imagine the outcry if Trump met with white supremacists!

In the wake of the Charlottesville riot the media demanded that the Trump Administration label the incident as "domestic terrorism." Funny, but the same media types looked the other way as the Obama Administration refused to label the Fort Hood attack as terrorism or the killing of five police officers in Dallas by a Black Lives Matter activist. Obama meet with leaders of Black Lies Matter at the White House and in the wake of the Dallas assassination continued to call protests by BLM "a good thing."

Now, elements of this fringe hate group were central in inciting violence in Charlottesville.

Here's a reminder of the recent past. Might it have any bearing on where we are today with race relations and the leaders of the Democrat Party responsible for the mess?
DAILY CALLER: In light of the criticism against the current president, it’s worth remembering how the previous president dealt with an act of domestic terror committed by a racial nationalist.

In July of 2016, an avowed black nationalist murdered five police officers during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Dallas, Texas. The act of violence was well-planned and was motivated entirely by the hate-filled ideology of the shooter, Micah Xavier Johnson.

With several officers dead by the hand of a committed black nationalist, one might think the Obama administration may have considered the assassinations domestic terror and launched an investigation into groups associated with this ideology.

Not at all.

Barack Obama condemned the shootings, but he did not call out or even allude to Johnson’s hateful views. He did, however, blame “powerful weapons” for the violence.

In her statement on the shooting, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch exploited the tragedy to push for gun control and praise the cause of Black Lives Matter. No mention of Johnson’s ideology or “hate” in was made in her statement, but she did manage to directly name multiple cases of police-involved shootings — all after cops were the ones murdered.
Cop killing has been a frequent occurrence in the wake of the Black Lies Matter movement and yet at every step the Obama Administration refused to call the assassinations acts of terror and instead accused police of creating the environment where such acts occurred.

We're living now with the consequence of years of Obama promoting black nationalists, even looking the other way as violence escalates so Obama and the Democrats could use heightened racial tensions to whip up support in the black community that and the left wing news media. It's one more case of Trump being forced to clean up the mess Obama left behind!

While Trump, Pence, Ryan and Other GOP Leaders Condemn ALL Violence, Dems Still Can't Condemn Black Nationalist Violence!

This whole race war is a set up by Black Lives Matter and the left!

Just about every Republican on the planet condemned the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia yesterday. But Democrats went out of their way to condemn Trump for condemning ALL violence.

It seems Democrats only want to condemn white nationalists. And why not? They're repulsive. But in case you had not noticed, we hardly ever heard from the so-called white nationalists until the Black Lives Matter crowd started calling for white cops, or white people in general to be killed. And we saw so many acts of violence directed at the right across the country that had nothing to do with any alt-right group. Look at the riots in Berkeley or other college campuses if you need a refresher. How about the "black only" spaces springing up at enlightened universities?

Watching the news footage yesterday I saw repeated images of Black Lies Matter and other black clad anarchist types carrying baseball bats and assaulting alt-right protesters.

Have we reached the point in this country where only certain groups like Black Lives Matter have the right to be heard in the public space? Sorry folks, but THAT IS the definition of fascism which ironically these dolts claim to be protesting! If you need some perspective, you might ask former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders how he felt after being forced off the stage at one of his own events after Black Lies Matter seized the microphone.

There is NO DIFFERENCE between the repulsive speech of white nationalists and black nationalists. They are BOTH HATE GROUPS. Yet the Democrats continue to embrace Black Lives Matter while calling on Republicans to denounce white nationalists which THEY DO!

Don't think this is all being staged by Black Lies Matter and the Dems?

Here's Obama meeting with Black Lies Matter activists at the White House and being embraced by black civil rights leaders. How many friends of these folks were carrying bats in Charlottesville on Saturday?

Obama embraced Black Lives Matter activists at the White House. How many went on
to riot in Charlottesville and elsewhere?
And it's not like we should be surprised that they were going to start trouble. They announced it in advance. Thousands of tweets, many much more hate filled than this one could fill the pages of this blog for days:

Bernie Sanders got booed for saying "all lives matter." Trump is being criticized for saying violence from all sides has to stop. It seems Democrats are just fine with violence by Black Lies Matter and the incitement to violence they provide all across the country.

Stop white nationalist hate. Stop black nationalist hate. Is that so difficult to understand? If you can't do that then the violence will continue as one side seems to have a get out of jail free card!

UPDATE:

What happened in Charlottesville was no accident. Black Lies Matter went there to incite violence! Again, no Dems have denounced the group.
Meanwhile, in Richmond, Virginia, an off duty reporter was recording the anti-hate group when he was ordered to stop filming and was attacked:
Here's more perspective:

Remember, these are the people carrying the signs that say "no hate!"

How NOT to Manage North Korea. Obama, Clinton and Foreign Policy Establishment Failed and Are Responsible for Current Crisis

Focus on diplomacy without result has led to current situation!

Give peace a chance! That's the message coming from Democrats and the foreign policy establishment worldwide. I might as well listen to the John Lennon tune. Even as a comatose 22 year old Otto Warmbier was returned to the U.S. to die after being beaten in a North Korean prison the peace at any price crowd wanted talk, talk and more talk. That's been the ONLY U.S. response to North Korea for over 25 years. During that time North Korea went from a nuclear free country to one during the Obama Administration armed with 60 miniaturized warheads and well on their way to developing a missile capable of delivering them.

No matter how much talk there has been the situation only gets worse. Diplomacy has failed. I recommend reading the Arms Control Association timeline on North Korea for a brief history of the effort.

The short version is this: In 1991 President George H. W. Bush ordered the removal of all U.S. nuclear weapons from South Korea. Shortly after that both North and South Korea agreed to declare the Korean Peninsula a nuclear free zone banning all weapons development. The North Koreans started cheating right away.

During the early 1990's North Korea continued to cheat on nuclear agreements and deny required inspections. Then former President Jimmy Carter got into the act and produced an agreement with North Korea in 1994. Here's President Clinton announcing the agreement in October 1994:


CLINTON: Before I take your questions, I'd like to say just a word about the framework with North Korea that Ambassador Gallucci signed this morning.

This is a good deal for the United States. North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.

South Korea, with support from Japan and other nations, will bear most of the cost of providing North Korea with fuel to make up for the nuclear energy it is losing, and they will pay for an alternative power system for North Korea that will allow them to produce electricity while making it much harder for them to produce nuclear weapons.

The United States and international inspectors will carefully monitor North Korea to make sure it keeps its commitments. Only as it does so will North Korea fully join the community of nations."
Sounds great hunh? North Korea laughed all the way to the bank and the cheating never stopped!

George W. Bush initially followed a harder line. Bush stopped aid and refused direct talks while describing North Korea as part of an "axis of evil" in the 2002 State of the Union speech. But the do-gooders in Colin Powell's State Department eventually wore Bush down and once again North Korea laughed all the way to the bank.

When Obama, Mr. Red Line in Syria, came into office the North Koreans KNEW they had a good thing. North Korea began testing nuclear weapons while Obama sent high level envoys for diplomatic talks and promised aid if the North Koreans stopped. There was an agreement in 2012 that North Korea would stop nuclear development in return for U.S. aid. The North Koreans laughed all the way to the bank.

Two years later Obama, Mr. Red Line, was in South Korea blustering about U.S. military might. He said The U.S. "will not hesitate to use our military might." North Korea laughed it off! I can't recall any of the melting snowflakes currently hyperventilating about Trump's threat to North Korea fainting in fear at that. No wonder!

Meanwhile, Obama cut spending for missile defense and canceled basing agreements with other nations.

Obama proved so feckless in achieving a deal with North Korea but that didn't stop him from shouting to the rooftops after the deal he cut with Iran. Contrast his words with the failed policy of Bill Clinton above:

OBAMA: Iran will not get its hands on a nuclear bomb. The region, the United States, and the world will be more secure.
In return for Iran signing this worthless deal Obama sent planeloads of U.S. cash. The Iranians, who are working with the North Koreans on nuclear and missile technology laughed all the way to the bank!

It's clear that appeasement and diplomacy has failed. And because of that failure, the threat is now much greater than it ever was. The cost of containing it is also higher. Time to try something new. Let's hope Trump doesn't get snookered like Clinton and Obama!

Trump Takes Sharp Turn from Failed Obama and Clinton North Korea Policy

Is there anyone who doesn't think that North Korean threats to attack the United States with nuclear weapons wouldn't require an all out response from the U.S.?

Flatten them!



The only reason we are in this mess is because of the appeasement offered by Obama and Bill Clinton!

Despite the Noise, Trump Agenda to Make America Great is Succeeding Already

Trump knows that if he succeeds in getting the economy moving it means he wins the political war!

None of the Hate Trump media will follow this, but to those of us who pay attention to larger questions than the sideshow offered by the  Democrats Daily Plan to Destroy Trump (bought and paid for by a foreign agent who once collaborated with the Nazis), Trump's leadership is already paying off for ALL Americans. Not just the rich who got richer under Obama while the Middle Class shrunk.

Gary Shapiro writing at Business Daily elaborates on the talking points below:
  • The stock market continues to break records
  • The job market is heating up.
  • Wages are rising. 
  • Businesses are investing more in the U.S
  • Our foreign positioning has improved
  • Trade policy and trade agreements can improve.
  • Americans are safer and more secure. 
  • America is fostering innovative new technologies. 
See the full article for details.

Apparently, Democrats will go to any lengths to block a plan from succeeding where there's have so evidently failed!

House Judiciary GOP Lays Out Questions for Appointment of New Special Prosecutor to Investigate Clinton and Dem Corruption

Dems got their demand for a prosecutor to investigate Trump despite lack of evidence to suggest wrongdoing. There IS EVIDENCE of Dem wrongdoing in run up to 2016 election. Time for another Special Prosecutor!

The Obama Administration clearly learned a key lesson from the Clinton era: never appoint a Special Prosecutor. You never know what that will lead to.

So, during the Obama Administration they largely stonewalled requests from Congress for oversight on the various Obama scandals. Be it the IRS targeting of the Tea Party, Fast and Furious gun running, illegal monitoring of reporters and an Attorney General held in contempt for lying to Congress. With media help, Obama stonewalled it all.

Funny how Democrats in Congress who deflected every call for a Special Prosecutor during the Obama years were the first to demand one to investigate Trump. And shame on Trump and the Department of Justice for allowing the appointment of Mueller.

But if you're going to have Mueller digging for dirt all the way back to Donald Trump Jr.'s paper route then why are we still ignoring complaints about possible criminal activity by Democrats during the Obama years?

Last week Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Sessions in which they said:
As we referenced above, Democrats and the mainstream media called for a special counsel to be appointed to investigate any Russian influence on President Trump’s campaign. Their pleas were answered, but there are many questions that may be outside the scope of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. This was clear following Mr. Comey’s recent testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8, 2017, which ignited renewed scrutiny of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and the actions she took to mislead the public concerning the investigation into the Clinton email investigation. Last year, this Committee inquired repeatedly about the circumstances surrounding that and other matters, but our inquiries were largely ignored.
Here are the questions which House Republican Judiciary members want a Special Prosecutor to address:
We call on a newly appointed special counsel to investigate, consistent with appropriate regulations, the following questions, many of which were previously posed by this Committee and remain unanswered:
 1.Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing Mr. Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the Clinton investigation;

2. The shadow cast over our system of justice concerning Secretary Clinton and her involvement in mishandling classified information;

3. FBI and DOJ’s investigative decisions related to former Secretary Clinton’s email investigation, including the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to potential Clinton co-conspirators Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, John Bentel and possibly others;

4. The apparent failure of DOJ to empanel a grand jury to investigate allegations of mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and her associates;

5. The Department of State and its employees’ involvement in determining which communications of Secretary Clinton’s and her associates to turn over for public scrutiny;
6.WikiLeaks disclosures concerning the Clinton Foundation and its potentially unlawful international dealings;

7. Connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine;

8.Mr. Comey’s knowledge of the purchase of Uranium One by the company Rosatom, whether the approval of the sale was connected to any donations made to the Clinton Foundation, and what role Secretary Clinton played in the approval of that sale that had national security ramifications;

9. Disclosures arising from unlawful access to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) computer systems, including inappropriate collusion between the DNC and the Clinton campaign to undermine Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign;

10. Post-election accusations by the President that he was wiretapped by the previous Administration, and whether Mr. Comey and Ms. Lynch had any knowledge of efforts made by any federal agency to unlawfully monitor communications of then-candidate Trump or his associates;

11. Selected leaks of classified information related to the unmasking of U.S. person identities incidentally collected upon by the intelligence community, including an assessment of whether anyone in the Obama Administration, including Mr. Comey, Ms. Lynch, Ms. Susan Rice, Ms. Samantha Power, or others, had any knowledge about the “unmasking” of individuals on then candidate-Trump’s campaign team, transition team, or both;

12. Admitted leaks by Mr. Comey to Columbia University law professor, Daniel Richman, regarding conversations between Mr. Comey and President Trump, how the leaked information was purposefully released to lead to the appointment of a special counsel, and whether any classified information was included in the now infamous “Comey memos”;

13. Mr. Comey’s and the FBI’s apparent reliance on “Fusion GPS” in its investigation of the Trump campaign, including the company’s creation of a “dossier” of information about Mr. Trump, that dossier’s commission and dissemination in the months before and after the 2016 election, whether the FBI paid anyone connected to the dossier, and the intelligence sources of Fusion GPS or any person or company working for Fusion GPS and its affiliates;

14. Any and all potential leaks originated by Mr. Comey and provided to author Michael Schmidt dating back to 1993.

You have the ability now to right the ship for the American people so these investigations may proceed independently and impartially. The American public has a right to know the facts – all of them – surrounding the election and its aftermath. We urge you to appoint a second special counsel to ensure these troubling, unanswered questions are not relegated to the dustbin of history.

Despite Democrats Best Efforts, Here's PROOF Trump is Making America's Economy Great Again!

Look at what the DOW was during Obama's last months and compare!


As soon as Trump was elected the DOW shot right up! 

If Trump Destroyed Evidence He Would Be Impeached. So, Why No Special Prosecutor for Hillary?

Can you say Obstruction of Justice? There's a mountain of evidence to suggest evidence was destroyed!

Imagine if the FBI found cell phones, lap tops, hard drives, were either missing or destroyed and emails erased from servers with special "bleach" software designed to destroy all traces of any Trump collusion with Russia.

Maxine Waters would shout her wig off! And every microphone in Washington, DC would have at least three Democrats in front of it demanding Trump be impeached.

But when it came to light that HILLARY and her band of outlaws had done the same thing nothing happened.

I wonder why?

This is an excerpt from a hearing with FBI Director Comey where he is questioned by Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) last fall. Full questioning is here.



We know why the Obama Administration refused calls for a Special Prosecutor to handle Hillary's email investigation. Start digging in that dirt and it would likely lead all the way back to Obama himself.

What I don't know is why the Trump Administration has not appointed a special prosecutor for Hillary and the Democrat's crimes? While we are at it, how did Maxine Waters get so rich?

New Chief of Staff and New Communications Director Show Trump Serious About Managing White House and Message

A positive sign that incoming Chief of Staff Kelly intends to bring order to the White House!



President Trump (I still like hearing that) has been in office just six months. He's had a steep learning curve in the face of an overwhelming and implacable assault from Democrats who swore from DAY ONE to oppose him at every way in an effort to overturn the results of the election.

For Trump to succeed in the face of such unprecedented and in many ways illegal opposition he needs a team that is disciplined and can work at maximum effectiveness. Few would suggest that former Chief of Staff Reince Preibus or previous communications directors had met that requirement. Removing Communications Director Scaramucci after just ten days shows Trump is serious about finding the right mix.

The choice of General Kelly received high praise from bi-partisan sources including the New York Times and former Democrat Defense Secretary Leon Panetta who worked with Kelly at the Pentagon.

It will be a tough job for Kelly because ultimately he will have to manage the President who has shown he does things his own way. But it's a step in the right direction. Trump has been on a learning curve in the new job and these changes are proof that he understands the stakes!

Patriotism Back in Fashion at White House As American Legion Boys and Girls Show Their Stripes!

Watch video as they sign Battle Hymn of the Republic to Trump!

Almost forgot to pass this on from last week. President Trump Speaks to the American Legion Boys Nation and the American Legion Aux Girls Nation in the White House Rose Garden. Trump obviously enjoyed himself posing with the crowd.



But the real gem was at the end of Trump's speech when the boys and girls chant "USA, USA" then sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic. See it here with the video cued to magic moment.

Isn't it great to see some patriotic youth for a change? And these are young adults fully able to understand their own mind. Contrast that to the children as young as FIVE forced to sing praise for Obama in public schools. (1,2)

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. ONE MIND AT A TIME!

After Promising Repeal and Replace ObamaCare to Win Re-Election, McCain and Murkowski Do the Opposite

What's the chance either will lead any viable coalition for a genuine ObamaCare replacement that actually delivers on their promise for better health care? ZERO!

When John McCain was running for President he visited the Mike's America neighborhood in November 2007. I had the opportunity in a small gathering to ask him about his compromises with Democrats which betrayed key conservative principles. McCain was adamant that compromise would yield results. Whether it was immigration or federal judges McCain's compromises always gave Democrats what they wanted and left conservatives with little or nothing. When I challenged him he declared that if anyone disagreed "I am not your candidate and you should vote for someone else." I did vote for someone else in the primary. And all this Democrat friends who praised him when he helped them win on several issues didn't support him either in the general election of 2008.

Rather than learn from that experience McCain did it again by torpedoing the "skinny repeal" of ObamaCare that would have allowed House and Senate leaders to craft a new bill. Again, he's the hero of the left for a day from the same people who would never vote for him.

For the people of Arizona who did vote for him and who suffer from triple digit increase in ObamaCare this year McCain's move left them paying the bill! This despite his many promises to repeal and replace:


For Alaska voters, Lisa Murkowski's betrayal is just as bad. At Investor's Business Daily a commentary on both:
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, for example, wrote multiple op-eds for her hometown papers decrying what ObamaCare had done to her state, and vowing to repeal it, in the run-up to her 2016 re-election. In one she wrote that "the Affordable Care Act has unfortunately become one of the most ironically named pieces of legislation for Alaska in history."

In a floor speech in May 2016, she claimed that "I have consistently supported full repeal of the ACA and have voted to do so on several occasions. I have recognized that it is going to be difficult, if not impossible, to do so with this administration." She voted for the repeal bill in 2015.

But this week, Murkowski voted against every single version of ObamaCare repeal. She even voted against a "skinny" repeal that would have only ditched the law's individual and employer mandates and suspended the tax on medical devices — a tax that is so harmful to that industry that even uber-liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants it repealed.

Murkowski was joined by Sen. John McCain, who ended up being the decisive vote killing the skinny repeal bill — after voting for broader repeal bills that he knew in advance would fail.

Just a year before saving ObamaCare, however, McCain was vigorously attacking the law to win a tough reelection campaign. As Politico put it in a June 2016 article: "In fight of his political life, McCain hammers ObamaCare"

One of his 2016 campaign ads said "ObamaCare is failing Arizonans," and that "John McCain is leading the fight to stop ObamaCare."

Last February McCain introduced a bill to "fully" repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a "free-market approach that strengthens the quality and accessibility of care."

After voting Thursday night against the skinny repeal bill, McCain said it was because the bill "fell short of our promise to repeal & replace ObamaCare w/meaningful reform."

But McCain knows full well that the skinny repeal bill was meant to keep the process going to the next step — reconciliation with the more expansive House repeal-and-replace bill. Voting against skinny repeal has effectively stopped the ObamaCare repeal train in its tracks.
Do McCain and Murkowski have a plan and a process to bring Democrats along without betraying their voters and the conservative principles both Senators ran on for re-election? Let's just say that McCain's track record suggests otherwise!

Dems Attack Boyscouts for Loving Trump!

Were these the same Dems who booed the Boyscouts at the DNC convention in 2000?

40,000 Boy Scouts can't be wrong. REAL America loves Trump!

It's no secret that Dems hate the Boy Scouts of America. Any organization that teaches love of country has to be destroyed if you are trying to "transform America."  It's also no secret that Obama NEVER spoke in person to a Boy Scout Jamboree, a mass gathering every four years. He would might have been booed off the stage. But not Trump. The Scouts LOVED him!


"WE LOVE TRUMP! WE LOVE TRUMP!"

Trump's entire speech is here.

Here's an excerpt from the speech (text):
TRUMP: When you volunteer for the Boy Scouts, you are not only shaping young lives, you are shaping the future of America. (Applause.) The United States has no better citizens than its Boy Scouts. (Applause.) No better. The values, traditions, and skills you learn here will serve you throughout your lives, and just as importantly they will serve your families, your cities, and in the future and in the present, will serve your country. (Applause.) The Scouts believe in putting America first. (Applause.)

You learn to contribute to your communities, to take pride in your nation, and to seek out opportunities to serve. You pledge to help other people at all times. (Applause.)

In the Scout Oath, you pledge on your honor to do your best and to do your duty to God and your country.
...
But the words duty, country, and God are beautiful words. In other words, basically what you're doing is you're pledging to be a great American patriot. (Applause.)

For more than a century that is exactly what our Boy Scouts have been. Last year you gave more than 15 million hours of service to helping people in your communities. (Applause.)
...
Let your scouting oath guide your path from this day forward. Remember your duty. Honor your history. Take care of the people God put into your life, and love and cherish your great country. (Applause.)
Naturally, in the face of this overwhelming show of support from one of America's top youth organizations Dems took to the airwaves and social media to denounce not only Trump for speaking to the Boy Scouts but denounce the Boy Scouts while they were at it! They went so far as to liken this speech and the gathering to a Nazi rally.

Meanwhile, left wing fascists, the REAL Nazi brownshirts, are busy blocking business in the U.S. Senate and threatening anyone on a college campus who disagrees with them with violence!

The choice is clear. An organization like the Boy Scouts that supports American values of love of country and service to your community or the unsightly rabble of angry rioters in the streets who offer nothing but hate!

Anti-Democratic Left Wing Fascists Shut Down U.S. Senate to Delay Key Vote on Health Care

Remember, these are the people who say Republicans are fascists. But they are the ones who will do ANYTHING to get what they want!

Millions of Americans cannot afford health care because of the onerous ObamaCare premiums and deductibles. But their plight does not matter to the left that only seeks to gain power even at the expense of people's lives.

Democrats go out of their way to insist people "will die" if GOP policies are enacted. It's so ridiculous, there's even a parody about it. But people are dying from lack of access to care and Dems don't care. Least of all this rent-a-mob that showed up in the Senate gallery for an unprecedented display of anti-democratic behavior:



Trump speaks to groups of supporters and REAL Americans and we're branded by the left as "fascists." Meanwhile, the REAL brownshirts will do anything to get their way. Imagine if Trump supporters behaved this way!

P.S. The vote passed. Trumpcare is on the way!

Here's Your Collusion with Russia: Hillary and Dems Took BIG MONEY from Environmental Groups Who Funneled Money from RUSSIA!

All to defeat fracking which is the primary reason American energy prices are as low as they are!

CO2 emissions in the United States dropped significantly over the past few years. This has nothing to do with Obama or support for the Paris Accords but everything to do with increased production of natural gas from fracking. Naturally, the Dems want to put a stop to that right?

And they had help from RUSSIA which has been funding U.S. environmental groups to oppose fracking. the same groups, like the Natural Resources Defense Council turned right around and gave big bucks to Dems like Hillary Clinton and Sen. Chuck Schumer!

Where is the clamor for a Special Prosecutor to investigate that? Crickets chirping!

Full details in the House Committee on Science Space and Technology letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Liberal Dems Want People to Ride Bikes to Save the Planet. Now Dems in Oregon Want to TAX Bikes!

Unmasked again. The left cares less about saving the planet than they do about raising taxes to buy more votes!

First we were told that people need to give up their gas guzzlers and take a bike to work. Now, the left wing do-gooders in Oregon want to tax bikes!
BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it “an unprecedented step in the wrong direction.” “We are taxing the healthiest, most inexpensive, most environmentally friendly, most efficient and most economically sustainable form of transportation ever devised by the human species,” Mr. Maus said.
Next they will tell us we have to walk to work to save the planet. Will they tax walking too?

P.S. Speaking of saving the planet, name me ONE credible scientist who has ever put forward a study to show that taxing carbon will stop climate change. You can't!

Trump Center Stage in Paris as Guest of Honor in Bastille Day Celebration

The latest in a long string of allies giving Trump the Royal Treatment!

First, every leader of the Muslim world minus Iran and Syria attend an unprecedented meeting with Trump in Saudi Arabia. Then Poland rolls out the red carpet for a Reaganesue appeal to the best of Western values. Days later Trump is in France getting pride of place in the annual celebration. France's version of July 4th. The photos from the Daily Mail and elsewhere say it all:


American troops led the military parade in honor of France's special guest:

In Attacking Trump's Warsaw Speech Extolling Virtues of Western Civilization the Left Unmasks Itself

Whose side is the left on? Not the side of civilization, peace and freedom!

If the citizens of any nation have learned the lessons of history the hard way it would be the Poles. A country that had been divided by both the Nazis and the Soviets with the death camps of Nazi genocide a stain on their territory has a right to be acknowledged. So, when Trump spoke in Warsaw last week he invoked the Polish struggle for freedom from tyranny and their desire for peace and freedom and linked their victory to the wider struggle for peace in Western civilization.

Though Trump didn't call for an end to the "Evil Empire" his speech had a strong Reaganesque quality to it. For that reason and others the fusspots of the left in the U.S. hated it. Allow me to share a quick excerpt from the speech followed by the left's reaction.
TRUMP: I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization. (Applause.) The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never, ever forgotten who they are. (Applause)

AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!
...
Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. (Applause.) If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit, and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.

But just as our adversaries and enemies of the past learned here in Poland, we know that these forces, too, are doomed to fail if we want them to fail. And we do, indeed, want them to fail. (Applause.) They are doomed not only because our alliance is strong, our countries are resilient, and our power is unmatched. Through all of that, you have to say everything is true. Our adversaries, however, are doomed because we will never forget who we are. And if we don’t forget who are, we just can't be beaten. Americans will never forget. The nations of Europe will never forget. We are the fastest and the greatest community. There is nothing like our community of nations. The world has never known anything like our community of nations.

We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers.

We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression. (Applause.)

We empower women as pillars of our society and of our success. We put faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, at the center of our lives. And we debate everything. We challenge everything. We seek to know everything so that we can better know ourselves. (Applause.)

And above all, we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person, and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are. Those are the priceless ties that bind us together as nations, as allies, and as a civilization.
...
Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield -- it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls. Today, the ties that unite our civilization are no less vital, and demand no less defense, than that bare shred of land on which the hope of Poland once totally rested. Our freedom, our civilization, and our survival depend on these bonds of history, culture, and memory.

And today as ever, Poland is in our heart, and its people are in that fight. (Applause.) Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail. Our people will thrive. And our civilization will triumph. (Applause.)
A President who holds up the best of Western achievement and freedom; who could argue with that? Apparently, the hate Trumpers can. Here's a smattering of their smear of Trump's speech:
Are these paragons of the left so deluded by Trump hate that they distort a message of history, hope, family, faith and freedom into a racist tirade?

Reagan was on the right side of history when he called the Soviet Union an "Evil Empire." Trump is also. And the same people on the left who would have preserved the Evil Empire and the Berlin Wall are once again showing us who and what they really are. Un-American and ultimately the enablers of the enemies of freedom!

Former FBI Chief Comey Leaked CLASSIFIED Information in Memos. Where is the Special Prosecutor?

Or are those who criticize Trump above the law?

Contrary to his sworn testimony, former FBI Director James Comey did place classified information in the secret memos he made after conversations with President Trump and he did leak at least one of those memos.

Congress requested the memos from the FBI and the secret classifications were discovered.

It's a clear violation of FBI policies and also of federal law.

The Hill has the scoop.

But of course Robert Mueller, appointed as Special Prosecutor and himself a former FBI Director and friend of Comey is barred by law from investigating someone with whom he had a friendship which raises the question: when will a special prosecutor be appointed to investigate Comey and the other leaks that seek to undermine Trump?

Trump's Triumph in Poland. The Crowd Cheers "TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP!!!"

Poland's values are our values. It's history is a lesson to all of us on the cost of freedom!

I was one of ten students at Columbia University in New York City selected for a special doctoral seminar in national security topics led by Zbigniew Brzezinski, Mika at MSNBC's father and former Carter Administration National Security Adviser. Brzezinski was from Poland and a trick to getting a good grade in the discussion of national security topics was to mention the plight of Poland for freedom.

Trump didn't need to get an "A" like I did at Columbia to grasp the fundamental relationship between the Polish experience and our shared western values and history.

On Thursday he spoke to a huge crowd in Warsaw's central square. Standing before the monument to commemorate the Warsaw uprising as the Nazis sought to destroy the Polish spirit he spoke truths that apply to all those who stand for freedom.
TRUMP: I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization. (Applause.) The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never, ever forgotten who they are. (Applause)

AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!


Notice the red "Make America Great Again" hats....



Poland gets it. Trump's values are their values too!


More at the Daily Mail.

Listen as the crowd chants "USA, USA, USA!"



At one point the entire crowd begins chanting "Donald Trump. Donald Trump. Donald Trump!"

If the liars on the left want to tell you the world hates Trump. Let them come to POLAND!!!

CNN Undermines Free Speech and Threatens Opponents After Tracking Down Internet Satirist

The network that frets Trump may incite violence threatens to incite violence!

CNN reporters didn't seem to understand why it was a bad thing for a play in New York to assassinate a Trump look a like on stage. But when Trump tweeted a graphic showing him slamming to the ground a man with the CNN logo on his face they screamed in unison that they felt threatened and fretted the tweet might incite violence.

Apparently, that same concern for THEIR safety did not extend to the man who took credit for the graphic. CNN tracked him down and threatened to reveal his identity if he did not apologize. And made it clear that if he said anything CNN found offensive in future they would publicly out him and let the left wing fascist good squad do what they've done to Trump supporters and Republicans across the country.

With this threat: "CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change," the network made it clear they will put anyone at risk if they say something that CNN does not like.

When it comes to threats, apparently CNN feels it has a monopoly. But I wonder how CNN would feel if someone on the Internet published the address and phone numbers for CNN reporters if those reporters publish stories that the person who outs them does not like? Perhaps we'll find out!

Will Democrats Be Held Accountable for Supporting Black Lives Matter After A Black Policewoman Killed by Cop Hater in NYC?

Apply the same standard to Hillary or Bernie Sanders as the left does to Trump!


48-year-old mother of three Miosotis Familia was murdered as she sat in a police vehicle in the Bronx, New York on Wednesday. She was black. But there will be no angry protests in the streets shouting "black lives matter" because Familia was a New York police officer on duty killed by a cop hater.

What motivation did the shooter take from the Black Lives cop haters like the group in New York that marched chanting "what do we want? Dead cops!" That and other BLM groups across the country with the same message sowed the seeds of hate and violence.

And if Trump is constantly being warned about inciting violence by the news media what about Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders embrace of the black lives matter movement? Shouldn't they be called on to denounce groups that use rhetoric like the shooter in this case and protesters across the country?

Why isn't CNN covering this? Oh, too busy threatening people on social media!
What about CNN's own coverage promoting black lives matter? Aren't they equally responsible for this atmosphere of hate and violence directed at black police officers like Familia?

My Two Favorite Fireworks Photos

Happy 4th of July!

I've taken a lot of photos of fireworks over the years. My photo from the New Year's Eve fireworks in London is a particular new favorite. But the following two are my favorites of 4th of July Fireworks.

The first was taken on the Mall in Washington, DC. For years I had tried to get the best angle and lighting for such a photo and this is it. I forget the year but it was likely to be late 1980's or early 1990's.


The second photo was taken from a Staten Island rooftoop on July 4th 1986 celebrating the centenary of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor:


An earlier photo shows New York Harbor filled with boats in anticipation of the big event.

Isn't it great to celebrate Independence Day and the new beginning for the American people now we have a President on OUR SIDE!

Trump: Embraced by the World as a "Leader"

Examples of the trust world leaders show in Trump continue to counter the negative image the media creates!

I've previously covered (don't forget Canada, Israel, Japan and China) how well Trump has been received by other world leaders and how it contrasts with what we have seen the last eight years.

I almost missed this example from June 26th in the White House Rose Garden:
Prime Minister Modi of India: Right from the opening tweet to the end of our talks, President Trump's welcome, which was filled with friendliness, his warm welcome to the White House by himself and the First Lady, I would like to thank both of you from the bottom of my heart for this warm welcome.
I would also like to give a special thanks to you, President Trump, for having spent so much time with me, for having spoken such kind words about me and my country. And I would like to tell you that I'm eager to welcome your daughter to India for the Entrepreneurship Summit.

President Trump, I'd once again like to thank you for the time that you have spent with me. I'd like to give you special thanks for that.

My visit and our talks today will mark a very important page in the history of the collaboration and cooperation between our two nations.
The Prime Minister's effusive praise and warm affection shown for PRESIDENT TRUMP (don't you love saying that) was matched by warm coverage for Trump in the Indian press. Two of the major newspapers used these photos from the event at the White House:



Imagine how much more PRESIDENT TRUMP could succeed in international relations if he had an American press that was as fair, accurate and supporting as some in the press of the world's largest democracy!

If Democrats Have Nothing to Hide Why is Sen. Schumer Blocking Hearing on Illegal Unmasking of Americans by Obama Officials?

The real scandal here is not about Russia but the Obama Administration spying on political opponents!

I wonder if CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the Hate Trump 24/7 media will take a break from their hysterics to cover this? Only kidding.... we know they won't. But imagine the screaming headlines and handwringing if Republicans were blocking a hearing on Trump!
WASHINGTON TIMES: Schumer uses Senate rule to scuttle meeting on ‘unmasking’ by Obama officials

Capitol Hill’s competing Russia-election meddling investigations boiled over as Senate Democrats blocked a closed-door hearing into possible Obama White House efforts to “unmask” members of the Trump presidential campaign, while the chairman of the leading Senate probe said he hoped to complete the panel’s work by the year’s end.
A planned Senate Judiciary Committee inquiry into whether Mr. Obama’s aides tried to improperly identify U.S. citizens swept up in intelligence surveillance of foreign targets was short-circuited after Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer invoked a parliamentary rule against holding committee meetings beyond the first two hours of the Senate’s day.

Former National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice and other top officials from the Obama White House have come under suspicion that they inappropriately asked to “unmask” American citizens, apparently trying to monitor the movements of President Trump and his top aides.
I wonder whether readers may have reached the same conclusion as me that Democrats are so over the top in their 24/7 attacks on Trump, without ANY evidence, just to cover up a bigger scandal from the Obama Administration?

Video Montage Documents All Top Players in Russia Investigation Admit No Evidence of Any Link to Trump

Yet the left can't give it up because hate is all they have!

Nothing has changed in the month since this came out so let's take a moment to review:



Van Jones, Another CNN Hysteric, Admits Trump-Russia is a "Nothingburger"

This on top of CNN producer who admits the story is BS but good for ratings!

Van Jones, the far left kook who CNN can rely on to spout anti-Trump nonsense with real fervor admits its all an act:



JONES: "The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger."

Top that with the CNN producer who said the same and that it's all for ratings.

Or, the three CNN reporters forced to resign after their fake news story attempting to link Russia with Trump associates was retracted.

Is it any wonder the left continues to lose elections as they put their hate for Trump ahead of facts?

Another VICTORY for Trump as Supreme Court Unanimously Smacks Down Radical Left Judicial Overreach; Reinstates Trump Travel Ban

Heck, if you can't get liberal justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg on your side you have a problem!

Readers already know the story. Left wing activist judges forced Trump to postpone his ban on travel by six nations with a strong connection to terrorism by ignoring the law and Trump's clear legal grounds to act and making assumptions about Trump's motives based on campaign statements that have nothing to do with the law under which Trump was acting.

No doubt the same left wing hysterics that can't find a shred of evidence to support the other crazy accusations against Trump will be spitting more poison after this ruling. But hate is ALL they have to go on.

More proof that the radical left puts hate for Trump before U.S. national security!

Politics of Hate Thrashed as Dem's "Resistance" Loses Another Special Election

Dems can't seem to grasp that REAL America doesn't buy their hateful hysteria!

Those poor Democrats. They just don't get it do they? They had their heart set on winning the Georgia House seat once held by Newt Gingrich in Tuesday's special election. They poured money into the race, massively outspending the Republican Karen Handel and most polls showed the Dem challenger Ossoff would win. Early vote totals gave Ossoff a 10,000 vote lead. But after weeks of Democrat anti-Trump hysterics and the shooting of Republican House Whip Steve Scalise the GOP base in Georgia's 6th Congressional District came out on election day to deliver another massive thumping loss to the Democrat fascist machine.

I doubt it was lost on many voters that the Democrat challenger Ossoff received more in campaign contributions from San Francisco than he did from the citizens of Georgia. Once again Democrats tried to force their radical left wing hysterics on REAL America and once again REAL America said NO!

The media was all ready to say that if Ossoff won it was a referendum on Trump. Last night in her VICTORY speech Karen Handel went along with that line. She thanked President Trump and the crowd went wild.

OK liberal media, HERE is your referendum on TRUMP:


A couple of takeaways from this and other recent special elections. First, the hysterics of the left are NOT values that mainstream REAL America relates to. As long as the Democrat Party and their candidates embrace the hysteric kook Trump haters they will lose elections for most of these middle of the road districts. Second, the Democrats large lead in early voting means the GOP still does not have the mechanics in place to match it. Third, and perhaps most important, while many of these special elections are closer than Republicans might usually expect in such districts, the Dems will not be able to massively fund every single tight race in the 2018 midterm election they way they have here. Still, Republicans cannot take anything for granted and the best thing they can do is to rally behind Trump, turn back the Democrat attack machine and pass the GOP/Trump agenda! 

Update: This headline in the NY Times says it all:

More for the photo album. Add these to the photos of Hillary supporters on election night last November. How long before these Ossoff losers blame Russia?


No doubt whose side CNN was on!

Feeding the Violence: Dem Strategist Calls for Left to #HuntRepublicanCongressmen

Left looking to provoke a reaction? Careful what you wish for!

The lovers of peace and tolerance are at it again. In the wake of the attempted massacre of GOP Congressmen earlier this week a Democrat campaign strategist in New Jersey tweeted this:

Afterwards, he refused to delete the tweet or apologize. Where are the calls for civility from the usual Democrat handwringers? Silent!

But with his #HuntRepublicanCongressmen hashtag, this monster who revels in gun violence while demanding gun control unmasks many Democrats as political terrorists. And it's especially troubling since the shooter in this weeks attempted massacre had an "assassination list" of GOP congressmen among his belongings.

Democrats Feeding Frenzy of Hate and Violence

Provoking a Reaction

Democrat's vile rhetoric not only stokes hate and violence among their base, but they seek to provoke a reaction from those on the right. Remember that Democrat strategists were being PAID to send people to Trump rallies and start fights so that the media would accuse Trump supporters of being violent.

Readers may recall when a Chicago "anti-violence activist" was among the provocateurs who invaded a Trump rally and started swinging wild punches after attempting to storm the podium and seize the microphone.



Turns out, Hillary, Obama and the Dems were PAYING people to organize this violence!

Now the sewers of the Democrat fascist machine are filled with people advocating and perpetrating acts of fascist violence. Sadly, they may provoke a reaction. When they do, count on the news media to blame it all on Trump. But the truth cannot be denied. DEMOCRATS LITERALLY HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS!!!

Consumed by Left Wing Hate Shooter Attempts GOP Massacre

How Did British Prime Minister Theresa May Blow the Election So Badly?

If she didn't have a seriously well thought out strategy why demand a vote?

I was shocked when I heard May was planning a general election. Why now? And I still don't have an answer. From British press reports (and this analysis is scathingly accurate) she decided over the course of a walking holiday and just sprung the news on everyone when she got back. More to it of course but what?

Then to come out with imagery of May as "stable and strong" as if she can do no wrong but then hide her from debates and from the sort of one on one retail politics that shows a confident candidate. This was followed by a rushed and poorly presented major change in benefits for the elderly (everyone in Britain is on some sort of benefits; should be a cautionary note for Americans) that had to be retracted after the uproar.

All this made May look weak and wobbly. Nothing like strong and stable.

Granted May is NO Margaret Thatcher. What fire there is in her is well concealed behind an almost droning monotone voice. There is little about her that is inspiring.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn, under attack from members of his own party for the past two years for being a boob (and even smacked a woman in hers) went on to promise younger voters free college tuition, no repayment of student loans and about everything else he could think of without ever being challenged on a complete inability to get any of his program enacted and paid for.

In the voting results Labour saw a huge surge of 9.5% in total vote. But even the Conservatives managed to score a 5.5% increase. All of this at the expense of the smaller parties. In the end Labour added 30 seats. The Conservatives lost 13 and would have lost more except for the implosion of the Scottish National Party which lost 21, many of which went to the Conservatives for the first time in a long time.

The result was a major reshuffling of the deck in which the two main parties are stronger and the minor parties all but irrelevant except as kingmakers in a coalition government. If in future this trend towards a more two party system continues it may be favorable for the Conservatives who hold an edge in total seats and votes cast.

As for now, PM May is in serious trouble from her own party. Reports suggest many Tory leaders want her out sooner rather than later. But that sets up another election to follow. Hopefully whoever takes over will be better prepared and not talk like a government wonk but a REAL leader. Bold themes are better than watered down socialist me too politics!
