    Default The Left's War Against Trump's Administration

    Democrats Force Trump’s Education Nominee To Answer 1,397 Questions In Writing — Obama’s TWO Had 109, Combined

    CHRISTIAN DATOC
    Reporter


    11:15 AM 01/24/2017

    Democrats are blocking the confirmation of Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education nominee Betsy Devos by forcing her to answer 837 written, followup questions from her Senate confirmation hearing.

    “Mrs. Devos’ Senate opponents are grasping for straws,” Sen. Lamar Alexander said of the decision in a post for Medium. “We didn’t have time to question her, they say, even though she met with each one of them in their offices, and her hearing lasted nearly an hour and a half longer than either of President Obama’s education secretaries.”

    Alexander notes that while answering followup questions is customary practice for nominees, the number is astronomically higher than any other nominee in the position’s history.


    Case in point, Devos’ 837 followups — 1,397 if you include all the questions within a question — is “25 times as many follow-up questions as Republicans asked of either of President Obama’s education secretaries.”

    Arne Duncan, Obama’s first Secretary of Education, was forced to answer 53 written, follow-up questions.
    Do You Think Democrats Are Too Tough On Betsy DeVos?
    Obama’s second, John King Jr., answered 56.“Even though they disagree with her, Democrats should also promptly confirm Betsy DeVos,” Alexander wrote.

    “Few Americans have done as much to help low-income students have a choice of better schools.”


    “She is on the side of our children. Her critics may resent that, but this says more about them than it does about her.”

    Democrats introduce bill to take nuclear football out of Trump's hands

    By Edmund DeMarche

    Published January 25, 2017

    FoxNews.com

    Two Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation Tuesday that would prevent President Trump from launching a nuclear weapon without a obtaining a congressional declaration of war.

    Foreign Policy reported that the bill was introduced by Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif. The article notes that Lieu has a paper sign outside his office that reads, “Alternative Fact Free Zone.”

    Under current law, the U.S. president can order a first-use nuclear strike even if the U.S. is not under nuclear attack.

    Trump was asked by ABC News Wednesday about the responsibility of receiving the nuclear codes and responded that it was a “very sobering moment." “It’s very, very, very, scary in a sense.”

    During the campaign, Hillary Clinton made it a point hit Trump on his temperament and what she called his erratic use of Twitter. She said, “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

    Markey said in a statement that nuclear war is the “gravest risk to human survival," and he is concerned that Trump suggested in the past that he would consider a launch against terrorists.

    Markey was likely referring to Trump's comments in March, when he was asked a hypothetical question about an ISIS strike and responded, “I would never take any of my cards off the table.”

    Trump was also criticized during the campaign when he said, “Let it be an arms race” with Russia.

    The bill has gained support from various global disarmament groups and former-Secretary of Defense William Perry, who served under President Clinton.

    In August, The New York Times wrote extensively on the president's responsiblity with nuclear codes. The report said that it is up to the president to decide whether a nuclear attack on the U.S. was real, and, in turn, could have only minutes to decide if it warranted a nuclear response. The sitting president could launch as many as 925 warheads—about the equivalent of 17,000 Hiroshima bombs.

    “There’s no veto once the president has ordered a strike,” Franklin C. Miller, a nuclear specialist who held White House and Defense Department posts for 31 years, told The Times. “The president and only the president has the authority to order the use of nuclear weapons.”

    The New York Times report said a spokesman for the National Security Council refused to say if there is anyone in the chain of command who could overrule a president’s order.

    The Independent newspaper reported that, in the event of a U.S. nuclear strike, Trump would essentially be giving his Secretary of Defense the authority to authorize the launch. If his secretary refuses, he could be fired and the president would turn to the second-in-command.

    “Between the time he (the president) authorizes one and the time it’s carried out, there are other people involved.”

    Democratic congressman: President Trump is 'mentally unstable'

    By Chris Massie, CNN
    Updated 1:06 PM ET, Sat January 28, 2017



    Story highlights



    • "I do believe the president is mentally unstable," Gallego said.
    • This man is not normal. He is not acting normal," he added.


    (CNN) Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego said Friday that he thinks President Donald Trump is "mentally unstable."

    "Yes, I do believe the president is mentally unstable," Gallego, a Democrat, said on KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac & Gaydos. "I've said this thousands of times."

    Gallego made similar comments on CNN in August when Trump was the Republican nominee, arguing at the time that, "this man is unstable, he's unfit to be a presidential candidate."

    Gallego, who was among the members of Congress to boycott Trump's inauguration, said in the interview that he would not work with Trump because the president has not been transparent and because he is "not normal."

    "I will not work with President Trump because President Trump has not been clear and transparent with what occurred during this election," Gallego said. "I will not work with him to get an infrastructure bill until he releases his taxes, his disclosure to make sure that he's not starting a kleptocracy. He should not try to stop or impede a investigation into the election interference in this election. There's a lot of things that's wrong with this president. Being Republican by the way is not bad. I think any other Republican would be very much easier to work with. This man is not normal.

    He is not acting normal. And there's nothing that he's done at this point for me that he's proven that I should work with him. And I don't think it's gonna change."

    In the interview, Gallego also said that he saw the motivation behind building a border wall between Mexico and the United States as a "symbol of racism."

    "I see the motivation behind it as a symbol of racism," he said, before going on to say that Trump "wants to scare the white people about the brown people."

    "When you're doing it like Donald Trump is, without any forethought, without actually planning, and by the way, no funding, because Mexico somehow is supposed to pay for it, which they're not, you're basically doing it just for pure political reasons and you're stoking up one of the worst segments of the United States in terms of some deep-seated racism towards people that are Latino," the congressman said.

    Warren: I’m opposing Trump’s ’dangerous’ Education pick

    BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 01/27/17 02:16 PM EST 253



    © Greg Nash

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Friday said she will vote against President Trump’s nominee for Education secretary, calling Betsy DeVos unqualified for the job.

    "It is hard to imagine a less qualified or more dangerous person to be entrusted both with our country's education policy and with a trillion-dollar student loan program," Warren said in a statement. "Congress should reject Mrs. DeVos's nomination."

    She added she will "vote against Betsy DeVos's nomination to serve as Secretary of Education because her nomination is not in the best interests of the young people."

    Warren verbally sparred with DeVos during her confirmation hearing last week, grilling her on the knowledge of the federal student loan program she’d be in charge of overseeing, as well as what she will do to rein in for-profit colleges.

    When Warren pressed DeVos to commit to enforcing a gainful employment rule, DeVos said she would "review" the rule to make it was effective.

    Warren on Friday said she believes DeVos wouldn't be "a cop on the beat" or "commit to using the Department's many tools and resources to keep students from getting cheated."

    Warren also pointed to DeVos’s positions on K-12 education as problematic.

    "Not only are her ideas completely uninformed by experience with public schools, but the evidence is clear that her privatization theories are bad for students," she added.

    DeVos has yet to get the support of a single Democrat. She was included on a list of cabinet picks that Democrats considered top targets.

    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said earlier this week that every Democratic senator would vote against DeVos.

    DeVos only needs 50 votes to be confirmed, and the GOP has a 52-seat majority in the Senate. So Democrats could only stop her if three Republicans voted against her.

    Senate Democrats bash Trump's immigration ban; emotional Schumer vows fierce Hill opposition

    January 29, 2017 FoxNews.com



    Senate Democrats on Sunday attacked President Trump’s recently imposed ban on immigration from several mostly-Muslim countries -- calling the order unconstitutional and seizing on some refugees and green card holders being detained this weekend at U.S. airports to fuel their political outrage.

    “He has established a target of refugees,” Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the Senate’s second-ranking Democrat, told “Fox News Sunday.”

    Trump on Friday issued an executive order that includes a 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program and a 90-day ban on travel to the United States by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

    Durbin spoke after a hectic Saturday at New York’s John. F. Kennedy International Airport and other airports across the country -- where dozens of refugees or people with green cards were detained or stopped for additional vetting.

    “They just sprung this on us,” Durbin said about the executive order. “Refugees are the most carefully vetted visitors who come into this country.”

    Durbin also thanked a Brooklyn judge (the first of several federal judges across the country) who late Saturday issued emergency orders to temporarily bar the administration from deporting people from the seven countries.

    Top White House officials late Saturday and early Sunday rushed to defend the program and pointed out that President Obama identified the seven countries from which immigration has been banned.

    “These are countries that have a history of training, harboring, exporting terrorists,” Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, said twice on “Fox News Sunday.”

    White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that 75 to 80 percent of Americans agree with the policy change, amid terror attacks in the United States and elsewhere around the world in which the perpetrators have been linked to such countries.

    “We don't want people that are traveling back and forth to one of these seven countries that harbor terrorists to be traveling freely back and forth between the United States and those countries,” Priebus said.

    Hours after Durbin spoke, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, at a press conference, vowed to fight the executive order “with every fiber of my being.

    The New York lawmaker also argued that Trump’s order was “unconstitutional” and vowed Senate Democrats would try, in the GOP-controlled Congress, to reverse the order.

    “Mr. President, I’m here to tell you that I will fight this,” said Schumer, who sniffled back tears as he stood alongside several children and adult immigrants impacted by the ban.

    Trump also faces public opposition from at least a handful of congressional Republicans including Sens. Jeff Flake, of Arizona; Ben Sasse, of Nebraska, and Rob Portman, of Ohio.

    "This was an extreme vetting program that wasn't properly vetted," Portman said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

    CAIR: We Will Not Allow Trump to Change the ‘Tradition of America’

    by Pam Key30 Jan 2017823

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/...ition-america/



    Monday at a press conference announcing a lawsuit filed by the Committee on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) against President Donald Trump’s executive order halting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries to the United States, organization executive director Nihad Awad they would “not allow Donald Trump to change the tradition of American and the future of this country.”

    Awad said, “Donald trump is hurting who we are as Americans. And therefore the way we see this lawsuit is it is really the law versus Donald Trump. It is American traditional values of openness, human dignity and respect versus Donald Trump.”

    He added, “We are very proud of you because you are assuring me as a plaintiff, and all Americans that law is the law and due process and equal protection is what makes America great, and not what Donald Trump is doing. So my message to my brothers and sisters in the communities and to fellow Americans — we thank you. We thank you for being who you are. And we assure refugees and people who would like to come to America and respect the law that they will have that equal opportunity and we will not allow Donald Trump to change the tradition of American and the future of this country. Thank you.”

    California Democrat to First Lady: ‘Show Us Your Papers!’


    Nancy Skinner (Twitter


    byASSEMBLYMAN TIM DONNELLY30 Jan 2017839

    California State Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) isrenewing a demand to see First Lady Melania Trump’s immigration papers — an issue Democrats first raised during the election campaign.

    Skinner expanded on her demand in an interview with Politico this week: “No one in the Trump operation has released any of the documentation to indicate what was the circumstance, or whether she had full legal status. … We only know they had a lawyer look at whatever papers she chose to give.”

    In 2010, when Arizona passed a controversial immigration law that allowed state and local law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of anyone stopped for another valid purpose, Democrats — especially in California — objected that it empowered local police to “demand your papers.” That, they said, conjured images of the Nazi Gestapo.


    For the past six years, the Los Angeles City Council has boycotted Arizona over the law —even though the implementation has been subject to court battles, and in the end, many of the most controversial clauses were thrown out or abandoned.


    Ironically, Democrats continue to refer to Trump in “Nazi” terms.


    According to Variety, Actress Lily Tomlin, who was speaking to reporters backstage at the recent Screen Actors Guild awards, compared Donald Trump’s executive orders on immigration to the actions of the Nazis.


    You’ve got to change the laws, just like he’s changing, Trump is changing the laws now. He’s trying to change the laws. You know, my mind is going too fast. I wanna think about the fact that, you know, I don’t wanna make this comparison, I’m not making it any way, but the Nazis, they changed the laws if they didn’t agree with them. They just changed them and they could do whatever they wanted.

    Tomlin added, “Oh my gosh, I feel like I’m talking to someplace in Germany many decades ago.”


    Tim Donnelly is a former California State Assemblyman.

    Disgraceful: Nancy Pelosi Claims Democrats are “Doing the Lord’s Work”

    By Onan Coca January 31, 2017



    Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) must have some very screwed up ideas of the kind of work that God wants done on our planet.

    Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe the Senate Minority leader had the audacity to claim that Democrats were “doing the Lord’s work” and Republicans were “dishonoring” God. This is the same Nancy Pelosi whose own church leadership says she should be denied communion for her comments on abortion and whose religious leader has castigated on multiple occasions. She has not right or foundation to dictate to anyone what is and is not “God’s work.”
    Nevertheless Pelosi said of Republicans, “They pray in church on Sunday and they prey on people the rest of the week. And while we’re doing the Lord’s work, ministering to the needs of God’s creation, they are ignoring those needs which is to dishonor the God who made them.” Pelosi later added of Democrats that “we don’t wear religion on our sleeve, but maybe we should.”




    On their face, Pelosi’s comments are disgusting and untrue. Today’s Democrat Party has abandoned Christianity, and we know this from the times that they’ve voted God’s name off of their party platform and from the times they’ve BOOED God’s name at their National Convention.

    Moreover, the Democrat Party now actively supports policies that stand in a diametric opposition to the revelation of God in Scripture. On sexuality, marriage, family, abortion and more, the Democrats oppose the Christian view of life and godliness on countless issues.
    In particular, in regard to abortion, Nancy Pelosi and her comrades gleefully embrace the shedding of innocent blood and the sacrifice of our children for the comfort of their parents. This is something that God uses quite strong language to speak against in the Bible.
    In Jeremiah 32:35 God calls the practice of child sacrifice an “abomination,” in Ezekiel 20:26 he promises to make anyone practicing such things “desolate,” in Ezekiel 20:31 he tells his people not to “defile” themselves by participating in such a practice… and in Leviticus 20:2-5 God explains that the punishment for killing your innocent child is… death.
    Leviticus 20:2-6
    2 “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, 5 then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech.
    6 “If a person turns to mediums and necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.
    Nancy Pelosi is deluding herself if she believes that the Democrat Party is “doing the Lord’s work.” The Democrat Party is an engine of pure evil on our planet today, and they quite literally embrace the works of evil in their rhetoric and actions.

    Sarah Silverman calls for military overthrow of ‘fascist’ Donald Trump

    By Victor Morton - The Washington Times - Thursday, February 2, 2017

    Actress Sarah Silverman called for a military coup against President Trump on Wednesday night in the midst of violent riots in Berkeley, California.

    In a screaming all-capital-letters tweet exhorted her almost 10 million followers to “wake up & join the resistance,” a term from World War II that anti-Trump rioters have used to define themselves.

    She then outlined her preferred scenario for the violent overthrow of the legitimately elected government, still in all capital letters.

    “Once the military is w us fascists get overthrown. Mad king & his handlers go bye bye,” Ms. Silverman posted.

    She ended her post with four heart emojis, presumably signifying love.

    How the Left plan to fight Trump wherever he goes
    The Washington Post
    Perry Stein, David A. Fahrenthold 20 hrs ago

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Saturday evening march began at Trump Plaza, a high-rise apartment building President Trump hasn’t actually owned since 1991.

    Fine.

    It still has the name.

    It was a good place to start.

    From there, the marchers headed south, walking along the Intracoastal Waterway that separates West Palm Beach from ritzy Palm Beach island. They stopped shortly after 7 p.m. when they reached the bridge across from Mar-a-Lago.

    They brought signs and glow sticks to wave, hoping they would be visible across the dark water and the great green lawn of the club from up in the private apartment that is now the “winter White House.”

    If Trump sees those green lights, he’ll know that his critics have followed him home.

    “He likes to think that everybody loves him. We’re showing him that we don’t,” said Lisa Wright, 53, an IT consultant from Broward County who was marching along the waterway Saturday night.

    Joe Raedle/Getty Images In Palm Beach, Fla., Saturday, anti-Trump protesters carry a flag-draped coffin said to symbolize the death of democracy.Around 7:30 p.m., about 200 of the 1,200 marchers made it across the bridge to the back gates of Mar-a-Lago.

    Across the street, a few dozen pro-Trump people waved American flags, but the spectacle was the protesters, beating drums, singing and chanting.

    This is the reality of Trump’s honeymoon-free presidency.

    Having sought to create unprecedented disruption in Washington, his critics will now seek to bring unprecedented disruption to his life as president — including demonstrations that follow him when he travels and protests that will dog his businesses even when he doesn’t.

    Already this week, Trump — the most unpopular new president in modern times — canceled a trip to the Harley-Davidson factory in Milwaukee, where local groups had planned to protest his appearance; the White House said the protests were not the reason for the cancellation.

    And, around the business empire that Trump still owns, his critics treat each location as an avatar for the president.

    Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s Palm Beach, Fla., property, is being targeted by protesters this weekend.There have been small gestures of pique: lipstick graffiti on the sign at Trump’s golf course in Los Angeles; and a plan for a mass mooning of his hotel in Chicago. There have also been more organized efforts to take time and money away from family businesses — a boycott of stores selling Ivanka Trump’s clothes and a campaign to flood Trump businesses with calls demanding that the president divest from his holdings.

    For Trump’s opponents, these demonstrations are a way to change his behavior by denting the president’s own self-image as a popular man with a successful business.

    The risk, for them, is that protests meant to shame Trump will consume energy that could be used to beat him by winning elections and swaying votes in Congress.

    A protest “gets under his skin,” said Michael Skolnik, a filmmaker and prominent liberal organizer in New York who supports this sort of demonstration. He said he hoped that, somehow, getting under the president’s skin might turn out to be a good long-term political strategy.

    “What if Trump can’t come out of bed for four days? That could happen,” Skolnik said.

    In the later days of his presidency, George W. Bush faced protests outside his Texas ranch from people opposed to the Iraq War. During President Barack Obama’s travels, he sometimes faced demonstrations from liberals pushing him to do more on immigration or the environment.

    But neither one faced organized protest movements at the start of their presidency, condemning the president across multiple policy areas. Trump does.

    It began the day after his inauguration, when more than 1 million people marched in Women’s Marches in Washington, across the country and around the globe. It continued the next weekend, when thousands of people gathered at airports to protest Trump’s executive order on immigration, which barred refugees and all visitors from seven *Muslim-majority countries.

    It continued this past week as the administration was consumed by the chaos that the entry ban set off.

    In New York City, for instance, hundreds of bodega markets owned by Yemeni Americans closed Thursday to protest the same ban.

    “You know how Yellowstone National Park is built on one of the world’s biggest volcanoes?” said Ben Wikler, the Washington director for MoveOn.org, a liberal activist group. “It feels like that just exploded in terms of grass-roots energy.”

    Trump has dismissed these protests — operating on the theory that he doesn’t need these protesters to like him and that their anger might help him by pushing others closer to him. On Twitter, for instance, the president cast the Women’s March as a massive outpouring of sour grapes.

    “Was under the impression that we just had an election!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Why didn’t these people vote?”

    On Friday — after a pair of violent protests on college campuses where conservative provocateurs were invited to talk — Trump seemed to lump these small groups of unruly protesters in with the rest of his critics from the other events.

    “Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” he said, although there is no evidence that any significant number of demonstrators are being paid.

    Across the country, other groups have directed their unhappiness toward Trump at his business empire, which he still effectively owns, although Trump says he has shifted the management to his executives and adult sons.

    “I am scoping it out right now,” said a woman snapping photos of the sign outside Trump’s golf club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., near Los Angeles. She gave her name only as “Diane” and said she was scouting the site for a protest.

    “People are p----- and feel they can’t do anything, but we want to hit him where it hurts,” she said. “I don’t think he wants people near his businesses. We want to hit him where it hurts most — his money.” On an earlier day, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department took a vandalism report — somebody crossed out “Trump” on the sign with lipstick and wrote a Spanish swear word there.

    Others were more organized about their efforts.

    One group, Grab Your Wallet, was started in October after The Washington Post obtained a 2005 video of a taping of “Access Hollywood” in which Trump bragged about groping women.

    Shannon Coulter, who helps lead the group, said she had a visceral reaction after that when she encountered Ivanka Trump-branded items while shopping. Ivanka Trump had continued to campaign for her father after the tape’s release.

    “I kind of had [Trump’s] words ringing in my ears,” she said. She helped launch a boycott campaign, which has grown to include more than 60 companies — including the Trump Organization’s own hotels and golf courses, business that carry Ivanka Trump merchandise and businesses whose leaders supported Trump during the election.

    Coulter said her Facebook group has thousands of people connected to it. What they want, she said, is to “shop the stores we love with a clear conscience and without any bad memories.”

    Now, three businesses that her group targeted for boycotts have severed or loosened their connections to the Trumps.

    Nordstrom said it would stop selling Ivanka Trump merchandise, Nieman Marcus stopped selling her jewelry on its website and the chief executive of Uber, the ride-hailing company, pulled out of Trump’s business advisory council.

    Another campaign offers Trump’s critics a more direct — but possibly less productive — way to respond to Trump. It lets them call one of his companies at random and complain to whomever answers the phone.

    “Until he divests, these [businesses] are embassies of the White House,” said Scott Goodstein, the co-founder of Creative Majority PAC. He also runs Revolution Messaging, the Washington firm that set up the system.

    The system connects callers to one of 30 Trump business phone numbers. It could be a hotel front desk. It could be a restaurant. Goodstein said they encourage callers to “have fun with it.” For instance, if a restaurant employee offers to help make a reservation, one might say: “I have a reservation — that Donald Trump is not taking this job seriously.”

    Since this effort started in December, the PAC says it has facilitated 33,000 phone calls and been blocked by 51 Trump Organization phone numbers. He said it’s having the desired effect by squeezing Trump’s business in a way that would squeeze the man himself.

    “It’s definitely having an effect on Trump’s businesses,” Goodstein said. “And I’m sure that President Trump will know that this act of dissension is taking place.”

    But Alan Garten, chief legal officer for the Trump Organization, said in a telephone interview that the phone calls have not interfered with the business. And even if they did, he said, Trump would not know about it because he has resigned from his management roles.

    “There’s a complete separation,” Garten said. “He may read [about] it in the newspaper, that I don’t know.”

    LEFTIST ELITES PROTEST A NEW REVOLUTION

    “We deserve to be in in charge.”

    February 6, 2017
    Daniel Greenfield



    The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox. It will be brought to you by BMW. The German luxury automaker is a key advertiser at GQ. And GQ is the headquarters of the Resistance. That's a vlog by Keith Olbermann who returned from his exile at an ESPN Elba to denounce Trump.


    "I am Keith Olbermann," Keith Olbermann barks to the peasants and workers of GQ who are taking a break from reading an article on '$100 Cologne that Smells Like Nothing', "This is the Resistance."


    The Resistance is Remy Martin and Coach. It’s the ‘Best Silver Nail Clippers for Men to Buy Now’ and ‘7 Skincare Treatments Men are Asking for in 2017’. It’s the SAG Awards and the Golden Globe Awards.


    It’s the self-important people and the beautiful people rising up against the democratic oppression of the working class and proclaiming courageously in one voice, “We deserve to be in in charge.”


    When the revolution isn't at GQ (The Most Radical Dress Socks to Wear Right Now), it's at Vanity Fair where Graydon Carter denounces Trump (Donald Trump: A Pillar of Ignorance and Certitude) with a byline photo of himself taken by Annie Leibovitz smiling smugly from his skyscraper office.


    Maybe the resistance is Reed Hastings, the billionaire CEO of Netflix, who used his wealth catering to the tastes of urban elites, to lobby to raise the taxes of the middle class. Hastings whined that President Trump's moves to protect Americans were "so un-American it pains us all.”


    Who are these 'us'? It might be Warren Buffett, Google's Eric Schmidt and Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, with whom Hastings had joined to support Hillary Clinton. Or it might be the CEOs of Lyft, Airbnb and Twitter, to name a few, who have jointed the anti-Trump “resistance” of wealthy elites.


    It's no coincidence that the most vocal outcries against President Trump's measures have come from urban elites and the corporations that cater to their whims. It's easy to spot the class divides in the scoffing at Andrew Puzder, CEO of the company behind Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, getting a cabinet position instead of Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg who had been tipped for Treasury Secretary by Hillary.


    Carl's Jr and its 4 Dollar Real Deal are a world away from Facebook's Gehry designed Menlo Park headquarters. As much as a WWE tournament is from Conde Nast's Manhattan skyscraper.


    It's hard to imagine a clearer contrast between coastal elites and the heartland, and between the new economy and the old. On the one side are the glittering cities where workforces of minorities and immigrants do the dirty work behind the slick logos and buzzwords of the new economy. On the other are Rust Belt communities and Southern towns where working people actually used to make things.


    Facebook's top tier geniuses enjoy the services of an executive chef, treadmill workstations and a bike repair shop, all walled off from East Palo Alto's Latino population and its crime and gang violence. But who works in Facebook's eleven restaurants or actually repairs the bikes in the back room? Or looks through the millions of pictures posted on its timelines to screen out spam, pornography and violence?


    Behind the illusion of a shiny new Facebook future are Mexicans getting paid a few dollars an hour to decide if that Italian Renaissance painting you just shared violates its content guidelines.


    If you live in the world of Facebook, Lyft, Netflix and Airbnb, crowding into airports and shouting, "No Borders, No Nations, Stop The Deportations" makes sense. You don't live in a country. You live in one of a number of interchangeable megacities or their bedroom communities. Patriotism is a foreign concept. You have no more attachment to America than you do to Friendster or Myspace. The nation state is an outdated system of social organization that is being replaced by more efficient systems of global governance. The only reasons anyone would cling to nations and borders are ignorance or racism.


    The demographic most opposed to President Trump is not a racial minority, but a cultural elite.


    This isn't a revolution. The revolutions happened in June and November. Brexit and Trump were revolutions. The protests against them are a reaction by the overthrown establishment.


    Somewhere along the way the political projects of the left ceased to be revolutionary. The left won. It took control of nations and set about dismantling them. Its social and economic agendas became law. It ruled through a vast interconnected system of bureaucracy, media, academia, non-profits and corporations. In Europe, democracy nearly vanished. In America, there were still elections, but they didn't matter very much. A Republican president could tinker a little, but he couldn't change things. The left would throw its ritualistic tantrums if he limited abortion funding or invaded Iraq. But around the isolated controversies, everything else would go on moving further to the left.


    The left had come to envision its victory as inevitable. Its leaders enjoyed a secular right of kings bestowed on them by historical materialism. And so they couldn't see the revolution coming.


    The inevitable elites and their power were overthrown. The little people they had been stepping on stormed the castle. All their pseudoscience polls had failed to predict it. Suddenly the future no longer belonged to the City or to Palo Alto. And its denizens poured out into the streets to protest.

    The protests are taking place in the name of oppressed minorities, but like any dot com logo, that's branding. They are actually an angry reaction by an overthrown elite to a people's revolution.


    This isn't really about Muslims. The angry protesters know as little about Islam as they do about rural Iowa. But borders and airports are an important metaphor. President Trump said, "A nation without borders is not a nation." And that's exactly what the left wanted. No borders and no nations.


    If you make tangible goods or have a mortgage, you are more likely to want borders and a nation. If on the other hand you deal in intangibles, in strings of numbers, in data on global servers, in movies and music, then borders are an unreal abstraction. If you get your rides from Uber, your house from Airbnb, your entertainment from Netflix and your dates from Tinder, if you don't actually own anything, and have no plans for a family or anything more permanent than a virtual existence, who needs a nation?


    Nations are ideals grounded in real things. Our elites exist in an unreal world filled with unreal things. Their system is based on using communications technology to organize the world in new ways. They have grown so dazzled by the potential of that organization that they ignore what is underneath.


    That metaphor became reality with Brexit and Trump. The country rebelled against the city. People who were in the business of making and doing real things rose up against a virtual economy.
    [/COLOR]

    The elites are unable to understand the nationalistic and territorial impulses of either their own citizens or Islamic terrorists. Their strange social-plutocratic fusion of Marxism and technocracy sees it as a problem of sharing the wealth. All the popular uprisings can be put down with a bigger welfare state. Redistribute more of the profits from Facebook to Muslims and Trump voters. Problem solved.

    But the problem can't be solved by enlarging the welfare class. It's a gaping cultural chasm.

    People need meaning. It is meaning that gives them a sense of worth. The angry leftist reactionaries find meaning in their post-everything world. The shattering of this world has driven them into the streets. And yet they can't grasp that it was the shattering of their world that drove so many working people to vote for Brexit or Trump. They refuse to comprehend that nations have meaning to more people than their post-national world order of interchangeable multicultural megacities does or that most people want something tangible to hold on to, including land and family, even if it requires labor and sacrifice.
    [/COLOR]

    It was a war between Davos, Conde Nast, GQ, Soros, MSNBC, Hollywood, Facebook and America. And America won.


    The "resistance" is a collection of elites, from actors at award shows to fashion magazines to tech billionaires, decrying a popular revolt against their rule. They are not the resistance. They are dictators in exile. They had their chance to impose their vision on the people. And they lost.

    The protests aren’t a revolution. They’re a counterrevolutionary reaction by a fallen establishment.
    [/COLOR]

    The revolution will not be brought to you by BMW, by a Davos conference, by $100 cologne that smells like nothing or by Facebook lobbying. It will be brought to you by making America a free nation again.

    Senate Votes To Gag Elizabeth Warren After Anti-Sessions Outburst

    by Tyler Durden
    Feb 7, 2017 10:32 PM

    Not The Onion. Following a scathing speech against Trump's nominee for Attorney General, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said Senator Elizabeth Warren had "impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama," violating the so-called 'Rule 19'. By a vote of 49-43, Senator Warren was then barred from speaking on the floor until Senator Sessions nomination debate is complete (likely tomorrow evening).



    Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who was presiding over the the Senate during the Massachusetts Democrat's speech - who at times was repeating words being said to him by GOP Senate floor staff - initially interrupted Warren to warn her that she was on the brink of violating the rule.


    As The Hill reports, the drama on the Senate floor comes after McConnell interrupted Warren's speech accusing her of breaking the upper chamber's guidelines.

    “The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.

    “I call the senator to order under the provisions of Rule 19.”

    Under the Senate’s “Rule 19,” senators are not allowed to “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator."


    Warren offered a blistering speech against Sessions's nomination, arguing he wouldn’t stand up to Trump’s “campaign of bigotry.”


    “He made derogatory and racist comments that should have no place in our justice system,” she said.

    “To put Sen. Sessions in charge of the Department of Justice is an insult to African-Americans.”

    Warren quoted a 1986 speech from the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) who referred to Sessions as a “throwback to a shameful era” and a “disgrace” to the Justice Department.

    McConnell defended the decision, noting Warren had been warned.

    "Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation," he said after the vote. "Nevertheless, she persisted."

    McConnell also specifically pointed to Warren quoting a letter from the late Coretta Scott King, civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., as evidence that she had broken the rules.Coretta Scott King wrote in 1986, during Sessions's failed confirmation hearing for a federal judgeship, that he “had used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens" as a U.S. attorney in Alabama. When Warren said she was "surprised" by McConnell's actions and asked to continue, the Republican objected and was backed up by Daines, effectively ending Warren's speech.

    Warren rejected McConnell's move, tweeting to her millions of followers that

    "I will not be silent while the Republicans rubber stamp an AG who will never stand up to the @POTUS when he breaks the law."

    Of course, Democrats did what they do best in response - unleashed a social media frenzy of hurt fellings capped by the hashtag #LetLizSpeak.


    But Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) - the Senate's top Democrat - had the last word... "If the average American heard someone read a letter from Coretta Scott King ... they would not be offended, It seems to me that we could use Rule 19 almost every day on the floor of the Senate. This is selective enforcement."

    Maxine Waters Calls For Impeachment If Trump Campaign Colluded With Russia

    14009
    6


    by Pam Key16 Jan 20171,155

    Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said if President-elect Donald Trump or staff on his campaign had “collusion” or “exchanges of information,” with Russian government officials about former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, that would justify impeachment.


    Partial transcript as follows:

    WATERS: When John talked about him being ill legitimate, he talked about the fact about whether or not the Russians did play a role in determining what happened in our elections and also I think John was talking about there are going to be more investigations to determine whether or not Trump or his advocates — people associated with him on his staff on the campaign, whether or not there was some collusion, exchanges of information, and whether of not they were strategizing together and I think that’s what he was trying to describe. Other people are trying to talk about this democracy and whether or not once you question whether someone’s legitimate that you are questioning whether or not the democracy works. People, you know, don’t want it to be that you’re deciding that somehow the electoral system doesn’t work, the democracy doesn’t work, et cetera. He’s talking about this unusual occurrence where in fact we know that the Russians played an important role and they tried to support Mr. Trump and they tried to make sure that Hillary Clinton didn’t get elected. So I think that’s a legitimate discussion.

    MATTHEWS: Let’s talk about where that leads to. You raised a good point. If we find out that somebody on behalf of Donald Trump was on the phone or email relations with somebody in Russia or the ambassador from Russia and there was some sort of, as you call it, collusion, then what? Does that make Trump subject to impeachment? What do you mean by the term if there’s connection, collusion — your term.

    Watch (Part 2):

    WATERS: Here’s what I’m trying to get to—if we discover that Donald Trump or advocates played a role in helping to devise strategy, if they are the ones came up with crooked Hillary, if they are the ones that came up with she’s ill or there is something wrong with her energy and the way he basically described her in the campaign, I think that is something that would put the question squarely on the table whether or not he should be impeached.

    MATTHEWS: So you think you could have impeachable offense before you take office, in other words?

    WATERS: I think that at the point that investigation discovered and can confirm and document any of that — that that they had a role in helping to strategize, they had a role in attempting to determine the outcome in many ways that they used the information that they got from the DNC when they hacked into our email, et cetera — If that was used against Hillary Clinton in someway, yes, I think that’s impeachable.

    "He Will Die In Jail" - Intelligence Community Ready To "Go Nuclear" On Trump

    by Tyler Durden Feb 15, 2017 8:15 PM

    After nearly two full days of media hysteria following the forced resignation of General Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor, a resignation which the Trump administration attributed to a 'trust issue' rather than any concerns over the legality of his actions, Trump took to twitter to ask why no one within the media seemed to care about the mass leaks being "illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy" before describing the actions as "very un-American."

    The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 14, 2017

    Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 15, 2017

    The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 15, 2017

    And earlier today at a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump again called out the intelligence community saying they continue to commit "criminal acts" in leaking intelligence reports.
    "Papers are being leaked, things are being leaked. It's a criminal action, criminal act. People are trying to cover up for a terrible loss that the Democrats had under Hillary Clinton."

    "I think it's very unfair what's happened with General Flynn and the documents and papers that were illegally leaked."
    Here's @POTUS comments on Flynn being treated "unfairly" and allegedly being targeted by Democrats: pic.twitter.com/tUJVJkcqrX
    — Tom Namako (@TomNamako) February 15, 2017

    As it turns out, at least according to former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler, the folks within the intelligence community aren't taking too kindly to being called out by the President for their "criminal acts" or to being referred to as "very un-American." By way of reminder, this is the same John Schindler who ended his relationship with the Naval War College after he was caught in a sexting scandal...
    it was not Schindler’s unhinged comments that brought him to official disgrace. It was, ironically, his inappropriate use of communications technology.

    The former employee of the premiere signal intelligence agency of the world stupidly decided to send a picture of his penis to a person he met on the internet. The picture, along with a corresponding email where Schindler said he was not in a traditional marriage, were made public by Twitter user @Currahee88. According to @Currahee88 the information was released to shame Schindler though Schindler initially speculated he may be the victim of an intelligence operation.

    Schindler was subsequently put on leave from the Naval War College pending a review. The review was completed with the result reportedly told to Schindler in late July that he was out at the Naval War College. He was apparently given the option of resigning rather than being fired, which he took.
    But we digress. In a series of tweets posted earlier today, Schindler relayed the very blunt thoughts of a "senior intelligence community friend":

    "Now we go nuclear.
    IC war going to new levels. Just got an EM fm senior IC friend, it began: "He will die in jail."

    US intelligence is not the problem here.

    The President's collusion with Russian intelligence is.

    Many details, but the essence is simple.

    — John Schindler (@20committee) February 15, 2017

    Now we go nuclear. IC war going to new levels. Just got an EM fm senior IC friend, it began: "He will die in jail."https://t.co/e6FxCclVqT
    — John Schindler (@20committee) February 15, 2017

    So when efforts to spin a Russian hacking narrative fail to sway an electorate in the desired direction of the intelligence community, we guess treason is the logical next step?

    'Wake Up!': Kucinich Says Intel Community Making 'Unprecedented' Effort to Upend Trump




    Feb 14, 2017 // 11:56am

    Former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) was a guest Tuesday on "Mornings with Maria" discussing how the intelligence community is seeming to upend President Donald Trump in the wake of Michael Flynn's resignation as national security adviser.

    The former Democratic presidential candidate and Fox News contributor said the bigger issue here is that the phone conversations between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were intercepted and leaked to the media.

    "The American people have to know that there's a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the U.S. from Russia in a way that would reignite the Cold War," Kucinich said. "That's what's at the bottom of all this. It's early in the morning, it's Valentine's Day, but wake up America!"

    He said he believes money is a factor for those looking to cash in on any conflict between the U.S. and Russia.

    "What's going on in the intelligence community with this president is unprecedented," he said. "They're making every effort to upend him. Who knows what the truth is anymore?"

    Kucinich said Trump must get a hold of the intelligence community because he believes there is "definitely something going on" to undermine the president.

    Later in the day, two U.S. officials told Fox News that a Russian spy ship was spotted patrolling off the East Coast of Delaware, the first such patrol since Trump took office.

    Watch the full interview with Kucinich above, and tell us your thoughts in the comments section.

    Spies Keep Intelligence From Donald Trump on Leak Concerns

    Decision to withhold information underscores deep mistrust between intelligence community and president

    U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter.
    The officials’ decision to keep information from Mr. Trump underscores the deep mistrust that has developed between the intelligence community and the president over his team’s contacts with the Russian government, as well as the enmity he has shown toward U.S. spy agencies. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump accused the agencies of leaking information to undermine him.

    In some of these cases of withheld information, officials have decided not to show Mr. Trump the sources and methods that the intelligence agencies use to collect information, the current and former officials said. Those sources and methods could include, for instance, the means that an agency uses to spy on a foreign government.
    A White House official said: “There is nothing that leads us to believe that this is an accurate account of what is actually happening.”

    A spokesman for the Office of Director of National Intelligence said: “Any suggestion that the U.S. intelligence community is withholding information and not providing the best possible intelligence to the president and his national security team is not true.”
    Intelligence officials have in the past not told a president or members of Congress about the ins and outs of how they ply their trade. At times, they have decided that secrecy is essential for protecting a source, and that all a president needs to know is what that source revealed and what the intelligence community thinks is important about it.

    But in these previous cases in which information was withheld, the decision wasn’t motivated by a concern about a president’s trustworthiness or discretion, the current and former officials said.
    It wasn’t clear Wednesday how many times officials have held back information from Mr. Trump.

    The officials emphasized that they know of no instance in which crucial information about security threats or potential plotting has been omitted. Still, the misgivings that have emerged among intelligence officials point to the fissures spreading between the White House and the U.S. spy agencies.
    Mr. Trump, a Republican, asked Monday night for the resignation of Mike Flynn, his national security adviser, after the White House said the president lost trust in him, in part, because he misstated the nature of his conversations with the Russian ambassador.
    On Wednesday, Mr. Trump castigated the intelligence agencies and the news media, blaming them for Mr. Flynn’s downfall.
    “The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

    Mr. Trump doesn’t immerse himself in intelligence information, and it isn’t clear that he has expressed a desire to know sources and methods. The intelligence agencies have been told to dramatically pare down the president’s daily intelligence briefing, both the number of topics and how much information is described under each topic, an official said. Compared with his immediate predecessors, Mr. Trump so far has chosen to rely less on the daily briefing than they did.
    The current and former officials said the decision to avoid revealing sources and methods with Mr. Trump stems in large part from the president’s repeated expressions of admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin and his call during the presidential campaign for Russia to continue hacking the emails of his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

    U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia stole and leaked emails from Mrs. Clinton’s campaign to undermine the election process and try to boost Mr. Trump’s chances of winning, an allegation denied by Russian officials.
    Several of Mr. Trump’s current and former advisers are under investigation for the nature of their ties to Moscow, according to people familiar with the matter. After Mr. Flynn’s dismissal, lawmakers have called on the government to release the transcripts of his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and to disclose whether Mr. Trump was aware of or directed Mr. Flynn’s conversations.
    Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said he has heard concerns from officials about sharing especially sensitive information with Mr. Trump.
    “I’ve talked with people in the intelligence community that do have concerns about the White House, about the president, and I think those concerns take a number of forms,” Mr. Schiff said, without confirming any specific incidents. “What the intelligence community considers their most sacred obligation is to protect the very best intelligence and to protect the people that are producing it.”
    “I’m sure there are people in the community who feel they don’t know where he’s coming from on Russia,” Mr. Schiff said.

    Tensions between the spy agencies and Mr. Trump were pronounced even before he took office, after he publicly accused the Central Intelligence Agency and others of leaking information about alleged Russian hacking operations to undermine the legitimacy of his election win. In a meandering speech in front of a revered CIA memorial the day after his inauguration, Mr. Trump boasted about the size of his inaugural crowd and accused the media of inventing a conflict between him and the agencies.
    In a news conference on Wednesday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Mr. Trump again lashed out at the media and intelligence officials, whom he accused of “criminal” leaks about Mr. Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador last December.
    Mr. Trump didn’t explain Wednesday why he asked for Mr. Flynn’s resignation. Instead, he suggested the leaks and the media were to blame for his ouster.
    “General Flynn is a wonderful man. I think he’s been treated very, very unfairly by the media,” Mr. Trump said. “And I think it’s really a sad thing that he was treated so badly.”

    “I think in addition to that from intelligence, papers are being leaked, things are being leaked,” Mr. Trump said. “It’s criminal action. It’s a criminal act and it’s been going on for a long time before me but now it’s really going on.”
    Reviving his line of criticism against intelligence officials during the transition, Mr. Trump said the “illegally leaked” information was from people with political motivations. “People are trying to cover up for a terrible loss that the Democrats had under Hillary Clinton,” Mr. Trump said.

    A person close to Mr. Trump said he was reluctant to let go of Mr. Flynn because Mr. Flynn had vigorously supported him at a stage of his presidential campaign when few people did. Mr. Trump also felt Mr. Flynn did nothing wrong in his conversations with the U.S. ambassador to Russia and had good intentions.
    “They both continue to support each other,” this person said.
    For intelligence veterans, who had hoped that Mr. Trump’s feud with the agencies might have subsided, Wednesday’s comments renewed and deepened concerns.
    “This is not about who won the election. This is about concerns about institutional integrity,” said Mark Lowenthal, a former senior intelligence official.
    “It’s probably unprecedented to have this difficult a relationship between a president and the intelligence agencies,” Mr. Lowenthal said. “I can’t recall ever seeing this level of friction. And it’s just not good for the country.”

    Several congressional probes are examining Russia’s alleged meddling in the election. On Wednesday, the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee requested a Justice Department briefing and documents related to Mr. Flynn’s resignation, including details of his communications with Russian officials.

    President Trump vs. the Hydra: The Fight for OUR Lives!


    In Greek mythology, the Hydra was a gigantic water-snake-like monster with nine heads, one of which was immortal. As soon as one head was cut off, two more heads would emerge from the fresh wound. That description fits the President's truly monstrous enemies perfectly. Unless the people rise up and fight to defend him, we are all doomed.

    As this is written, well-organized efforts are underway to thwart the will of the American people and destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump. These competing efforts, launched by the forces of two criminal enterprises which hate each other, are united in their fear of Trump and the people who elected him. After Trump is gone from the scene, what little is left of American freedom will be gone and they will fight each other over control of the Welfare State's rotting corpse.

    The Socialist (mostly "Democrat") Hydra Head


    Obama may be out of office, but from behind the scenes he and his posse are directly and criminally involved in the fight to overthrow the elected government of the United States.

    A little over four years ago, in the week before his second inauguration, President Obama's "Organizing for America" campaign machine (OFA) announced that it had been restructured as a community organizing group. Only a few political junkies correctly understood that announcement to be a declaration of war. If that sounds a bit "over the top", please download and read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and David Horowitz’s short but excellent summary, “Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution”.

    Obama has taught and practiced Alinsky’s direct action methods his entire political life, most famously while working as a community organizer in Chicago. Alinsky taught that politics is war, that the goal is power, and that the first rule for community organizers working in pursuit of that goal must be, “There are no rules!” He believed that American society is divided into three permanent groups, “Haves”, “Have Nots”, and “Have a Little, Want Mores.” Obama is moving at great speed to seize power using Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" as his playbook. The “Have a Little, Want Mores” (members of the American Middle Class) are his first target. By destroying the economy, he intends to convert the Middle Class into “Have Nots”, thereby making them available for mobilization against the “Haves”.

    What Obama is doing is deliberately revolutionary in every sense of the word and completely outside the experience of his political opposition. He has moved the locus of action from the air waves and the ballot box to the street. The use of direct action to coerce members of Congress and state government officials is a dangerous move into uncharted territory, fraught with risk for the current political process, the American governing structure, and civil peace. Obama will use direct action to push through every goal, including gun control, amnesty for illegals, increased taxation, unlimited deficit spending and greater federal power. Unfortunately for the rest of the country, the feeble effort to oppose Obama's rapid advance by the few remaining members of Republican establishment that still believe in America is the political equivalent of bringing a knife to a gun fight.

    OFA is coordinating Obama's posse of union thugs, assorted radicals, overt Communists, sympathetic national and local “news" organizations, and other useful idiots in direct action campaigns to destroy President Trump and the traditional American political process. From the Vietnam era to the present, Alinsky-trained activists have consistently used direct action to seize property, block polling places, occupy offices, lie, bribe, blackmail, make terroristic threats, employ character assassination and engage in physical violence ranging from beatings, arson, and bombings all the way up to murder (see the Weather Underground). These direct action tactics come straight out of Alinsky's "anything goes" handbook and coordinating the use of direct action tactics is what "community organizers" do! It should be remembered that Obama's political career was launched from the Chicago apartment of Weather Underground founder Bill Ayers who has admitted participating in the bombings of the New York City Police Department headquarters, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon in the early 1970s.

    The Neo-Conservative (mostly "Republican") Hydra Head

    As evil as the Socialists are (and they are utterly evil),the Neo-conservatives are even worse because they have so many other-wise good and patriotic people so badly fooled. They masquerade as "Conservatives" when, in fact, they despise America's traditional values and are determined to impose their will on the rest of the world, even at the risk of war. They are quite willing to fight to the last drop of somebody else's blood. They follow the advice of Stalin's Communists and Hitler's Nazi's perfectly in this regard.

    “The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”. – Josef Stalin, Dictator of the Soviet Union.
    “Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goring, Nazi Gestapo Founder

    They intend to start a major war and then use the natural patriotism of the American people to gain absolute control of the national government. The blood of millions is already on their hands.

    The very worst of these traitors are Senators John McCain and Linday Graham, both of whom were instrumental in generating the current wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen and the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of the Ukraine.Just now, these jackals are in full-throated war mode, insanely trying to crank up war-fever hatred against Russia for non-existent "aggression" and completely false claims of Russian interference in the recent Presidential elections.

    For them, no lie is too great. No slander too outrageous.

    It is they and their syncophants in the so-called "intelligence community", the State Department, and the establishment media who pose the greatest threats to peace and freedom, not Russia. It is they and not the Democrats who offer the greatest danger to the President and the American people. They will stop at nothing to retain Establishment Control, not even nuclear war.


    They must be stopped.

    TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES - Shadow Government Exposed In All Out War Against Trump

    - 'Conspiracy' Explodes For All Americans To See The 'Deep State' Truly Exists





    By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

    While the present news cycle is focusing on the forced resignation of Michael Flynn, as well as the reasons behind it, with "America's spies" illegally divulging confidential information to the press, if we take a step back and look at the bigger picture, we see how America became a police state right under our noses, just as Independent Media has long warned, but were mocked and called "conspiracy theorists."

    Only now, every American has just been exposed to the truth of the "shadow government," the "deep state," whether referred to as the NWO, the Illuminati, whatever one chooses to label them... they exist, they are real, and they are attempting to take down America right now because Americans elected a man that is not controlled by them.

    WHEN CONSPIRACY IS PROVEN TO BE REALITY - DEEP STATE SHADOW GOVERNMENT EXPOSED

    The Shadow Government" is described by Wikipedia as " a family of conspiracy theories based on the notion that real and actual political power resides not with publicly elected representatives (for example, the United States Congress) but with private individuals who are exercising power behind the scenes, beyond the scrutiny of democratic institutions. According to this belief, the official elected government is in reality subservient to the shadow government who are the true executive power."

    Deep State redirects to State Within a State and is described as "a political situation in a country when an internal organ ("deep state"), such as the armed forces and civilian authorities (intelligence agencies, police, administrative agencies and branches of governmental bureaucracy), does not respond to the civilian political leadership. Although the state within the state can be conspiratorial in nature, the Deep State can also take the form of entrenched unelected career civil servants acting in a non-conspiratorial manner, to further their own interests (e.g. job security, enhanced power and authority, pursuit of ideological goals and objectives, and the general growth of their agency) and in opposition to the policies of elected officials, by obstructing, resisting and subverting the policies and directives of elected officials."

    I cannot count the number of times that we, and other Independent Media sites have been trolled and mocked when mentioning the "deep state" or called a "conspiracy theorist" when reporting that the "shadow government" has been controlling the U.S. for decades upon decades.

    Even liberal writers with nothing but disdain for both President Trump and Michael Flynn, are now reporting that "the deep state" targeted "a man working in one of the political branches of the government by dishing to reporters about information it has gathered clandestinely," while at the same time taking Democrats and liberals cheering the "political assassination" perpetrated by America's spies, to task by writing "Those cheering the deep state torpedoing of Flynn are saying, in effect, that a police state is perfectly fine so long as it helps to bring down Trump."

    Eli Lake reports the following at Bloomberg:

    Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do.

    In the past it was considered scandalous for senior U.S. officials to even request the identities of U.S. officials incidentally monitored by the government (normally they are redacted from intelligence reports). John Bolton's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was derailed in 2006 after the NSA confirmed he had made 10 such requests when he was Undersecretary of State for Arms Control in George W. Bush's first term. The fact that the intercepts of Flynn's conversations with Kislyak appear to have been widely distributed inside the government is a red flag.
    The Deep State used classified information, with the full complicity of the MSM, specifically Washington Post and the New York Times, in order to declare all out war against President Trump, using information disseminated illegally, to carry our what is being dubbed as a "soft coup."

    DEEP STATE OVERPLAYED THEIR HAND - COMMITTED A FELONY CRIME

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said on Tuesday that those who leaked the contents of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s phone calls "belong in jail."

    That was not hyperbole, as 18 U.S. Code § 798 - Disclosure of classified information, clearly states that those that "knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information," - "Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both."

    Nunes expands on the illegal nature of what America just witnessed, reported by Breitbart:

    The chairman said there are only two ways that intelligence agencies can listen in on an American’s phone call — after obtaining a warrant, or inadvertently, such as in the case of Flynn speaking with a foreign official being spied on, which the report suggests was the case.

    Nunes said "it’s pretty clear" that there was no warrant.

    "It’s pretty clear that’s not the case," he said. "I’m pretty sure the FBI didn’t have a warrant on Michael Flynn … To listen to an American’s phone call you would have to go to a court, there’d be all that paperwork there. So I’m guessing that doesn’t exist."

    In case Flynn was speaking to a foreign official — Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in this case — Nunes said there should have been a process to mask Flynn’s identity.

    "Unless it’s a high-level national security issue, and then someone would have to unmask the name, someone at the highest levels, they’d have to unmask that name," Nunes said. "It’s a very high threshold to unmask an American citizen’s name, that’s a very high threshold, almost unprecedented. And if you were going to unmask it, it seems like you would immediately go get a warrant."

    "If they did that, how does all that get out to the public which is another leak of classified information," he added. "Whoever did it, it’s illegal."
    The Daily Mail reports that Trump is not taking this lying down and is launching "all-out war on his own intelligence agencies as he says malicious NSA and FBI leakers are 'illegally' giving out classified information to reporters 'like candy'."

    As well he should.

    TRUMP MUST REDIRECT FOCUS TO CLEANING HOUSE - NOW!

    President Trump has spend his first weeks attempting to keep his campaign promises and to fulfill his Contract with the American Voter, so his supporters already understand he meant what he said and he said what he meant, but right now, in the interest of national security, as one of those supporters, I respectfully suggest President Trump redirect his focus, back burner the rest of those campaign promises just long enough to "clean house."

    As we note from a Fox News report, cleaning house would not necessarily mean removing all members of the relevant departments, as the information in question was "highly restricted" as former NSA analyst Bill Binney asserts that "less than 100 [people would have access to the intelligence]."

    "I think it is compartmentalized, meaning a small circle, less than 100 [people would have access to the intelligence]," Binney said. "They are supposed to minimize the American side. ... All presumed U.S. citizens have rights under the Fourth Amendment."

    Nunes said the timing may be significant because the authorization to unmask Flynn was likely taken under the Obama administration, as the phone calls occurred in December. The committee chairman said the issue goes beyond politics because it is also undermining the relationship between a president and world leaders.
    Not only did they overplay their hand and expose the truth of the Shadow Government and Deep State to every American and the world, vindicating everyone that warned the country of their existence, but the information they chose to reveal also considerably narrows down the search for who is behind the leak, and who is part of the Deep State, and they can follow the money to find out who is behind this shadow government, pulling the strings.

    BOTTOM LINE

    While the Flynn issue exposed them , as well as showing they violated the 18 U.S. Code § 798 - Disclosure of classified information law, the leaked phone calls between President Donald Trump and the leaders of Australia and Mexico shows they did not just spy on an American citizen with Flynn, but are actively spying on the President of the United States, presently.

    That ladies and gentlemen, is treason.

    18 USC Ch. 115: TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES
    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
