The Real Deplorables

0

“For whom much is given, much is expected.”  Luke 12:18

Mark Twain once said, “There is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress.”  To all the “Honorable” and esteemed Senators, Congressmen and Congresswomen who claim honor, distinction, forthrightness, dignity, and exaltation…raspberries! Too many of you can not live up to your own bogus standards. You’ve earned your lousy approval ratings…11% in 2015 (Gallup) and still a dismal 21% in 2017 (Gallup).

You have disconnected your lives from the people you represent. A myriad of you probably don’t even know what a bar code is or even live in the district you represent. Yes, Maxine Waters, that’s you. You live in a $4.3 million mansion in the best part of Los Angeles. How the heck did you manage that with a 40-year career in government?  And you too, Mr. Osoff, who just lost an election for the 6th District in Georgia where you don’t even live. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we have been paying attention.

Crime and corruption is no stranger to those in Washington. Some of the offenses committed or prosecuted while in office by the “honorable” people of our Congress and our government is staggering…felony tax evasion, wire fraud, mail fraud, bank fraud, sexual misconduct, racketeering, drugs, conspiracy, extortion, money laundering, financial corruption, domestic violence, theft, bribery, second degree manslaughter, possession of child pornography, embezzlement, perjury, witness tampering, destroying evidence, obstruction of justice, intoxication and resisting arrest.

Remarkably, in my research, since the year 1900, I counted almost an equal division of convictions of major crimes by both Republicans and Democrats. At my count, 49 Republicans to 52 Democrats…fairly even for all intents and purposes. The most crime-free administration found was the Taft (R) 1909 – 1921. The record of crimes by people in government has skyrocketed from the Nixon administration on through the Obama administration. Whether that is because of increased oversight is hard to say.

The voters have given Washington a strong signal, a solid indication of how they feel about you and the government. They want smaller, more efficient government and fewer services. The people have come to realize that, especially with healthcare, if someone else pays the bills, then someone else calls the shots.  According to Rasmussen in 2010, 61% of voters believe tax cuts will grow the economy better than more spending and 59% believe that deficits hurt the economy.  Can anyone out there tell me what we got for almost a trillion dollars in Obama’s stimulus package?

And yet, you are either not listening or your ears are plugged because of too much time in the congressional swimming pool. President Trump is reaching for the drain plug and you are fighting him all the way with every bit of minutiae you can find. You swallow elephants from fellows Democrats, but choke on gnats from Republicans.  I understand it’s politics, but it stinks all the same! You people have your power struggles while the people get treated like bad dates.

Democrats gleefully claim that Republicans have no healthcare plan, yet work feverishly to prevent any plan from coming forward or refuse to submit any ideas of their own even while they know Obamacare is disintegrating. They evidently want Trump to own healthcare before the 2018 elections in spite of all the “dead” they say will occur because of it. Is it any wonder why President Washington abhorred even the thought of political parties? For all their sanctimony, the left will not tolerate Trump getting a better healthcare plan through Congress. Democrats want power more than a good healthcare system. First things first, I suppose.

Republicans promised good things if they had control over the House, great things if they also have the Senate and Heaven on earth if they manage to control the presidency also.  Well, we’re waiting.  President Trump seems to be the only one working.

Maybe it was a bad idea to create a city wholly devoted to government. It has become a sort of sanctuary for the bureaucrat, a hiding place for the deal makers, career politicians, and the over-priced sponges of society…the real deplorables, the “Honorable” Blah, Blah.

“For whom much has been given, much is expected”…Too bad there isn’t much that is expected anymore.

FLASHBACK: TIME Magazine In 1996 Bragged About How U.S. Interfered In Russian Election.

The mainstream media has suffered a serious bout of amnesia — a Russian concussion, if you will.

Of course, the MSM is ignoring the clear evidence that Hillary Clinton is guilty (very guilty) of altering the course of the Democratic primary to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders (just skim through those Democratic National Committee emails and you’ll see). But the media is also pretending (or is simply unaware, not sure which is worse) that nations don’t try to alter the outcome of elections in other nations.

Take 1996. Boris Yeltsin, the president of Russia, was up for re-election in the summer and the United States felt that he was easier to deal with than his opposition, Communist rival Gennadi Zyuganov. But Yeltsin, the hard-partying and affable leader, had health problems and his approval rating was dismal — single digits. His chances did not look good.

Enter the United States, which, in a clandestine operation successfully helped Yeltsin pulled out a win.

“For four months, a group of American political consultants clandestinely participated in guiding Yeltsin’s campaign, ” Time magazine wrote in a cover story titled “Yanks To The Rescue — The Secret Story Of How American Advisers Helped Yeltsin Win.” Here is the inside story of how these advisers helped Yeltsin achieve the victory that will keep reform in Russia alive.”
The 6,000-word story tells a tale of how Felix Braynin, a close friend of some of Yeltsin’s top aides, thought Yeltsin would need help to win.

Most of Yeltsin’s confidants believed the President would be magically re-elected despite the Duma catastrophe, but Braynin thought otherwise. The President, he reasoned, could lose without the same kind of professional assistance U.S. office seekers employ as a matter of course. Braynin began a series of confidential discussions with Yeltsin’s aides, including one with First Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Soskovets, who at the time was in charge of the President’s nascent re-election effort. Finally, in early February, Braynin was instructed to “find some Americans” but to proceed discreetly. “Secrecy was paramount,” says Braynin. “Everyone realized that if the Communists knew about this before the election, they would attack Yeltsin as an American tool. We badly needed the team, but having them was a big risk.”

Is the Law Center a SCAM?

12 Ways The Southern Poverty Law Center Is A Scam To Profit From Hate-Mongering

What makes the hate list of the Southern Poverty Law Center different from the “burn book” a high school queen bee keeps in the 2004 movie “Mean Girls”? Answer: not much. The burn book was a compilation of insults, gossip, and rumors intended to repel the diva’s “enemies,” label everybody, and keep herself on top of the heap.

The SPLC uses its list of designated hate groups in much the same way: to manipulate the lives of others, smear reputations, control personal relationships, and reap the spoils. The dynamic is the same, whether played on the adolescent scene or in the political arena. Both lists serve mostly as power-mongering tools.

In civilized societies, we supposedly grow out of that sort of tribalism. But look around and you’ll see such behaviors proliferating in every sphere: politics, journalism, education. A recent headline in the Washington Examiner nailed it: “The Bret Stephens Freak Out is a Reminder that the Media Is Basically a Massive High School Clique.”

Why do so many folks treat the SPLC with undeserved reverence, the way too many high school kids treat a self-appointed nasty queen bee? Why do they accept the Southern Poverty Law Center as the nation’s Grand Inquisitor dictating who may speak and who must shut up? And why are its smears and caricatures so often blindly accepted at face value? What qualifies the SPLC to act as judge, jury, and social executioner of any human being who is not their blind supporter?

Those questions have been hanging in the air for decades. As with all vilification campaigns, the SPLC plays a dangerous and cruel game under the guise of defending victims. So let’s take a closer look at some of the SPLC’s history and behavior. Let’s count some ways it’s a con game.

Haiti Official, Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation, Found Dead In Miami!

Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week, has been found dead in Miami. He was 50.

Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.

According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide.”

Eberwein, who had acknowledged his life was in danger, was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years.

According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6% of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6% ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8%  – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.

The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year.

The former director general of Haiti, who also served as an advisor to Haitian President Michel Martelly, was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and even has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.

According to the Haiti Libre newspaper, Eberwein was said to be in “good spirits“, with plans for the future. His close friends and business partners are shocked by the idea he may have committed suicide.

It’s really shocking,” said Muncheez’s owner Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”

Bailly said he last spoke to Eberwein two weeks ago and he was in good spirits. They were excited about future business plans and were working on opening a Muncheez restaurant in Sunrise, he said.

The Haitian government issued an official notice thanking Eberwein for his service and mourning his untimely death.

CNN doesn’t get prayer!

Pathetic! CNN essentially mocks religious leaders, part of the Faith Advisory Board, for praying over Trump. Did they do this when people prayed over Obama?

It’s perfectly OK for American school children who are not Muslim to be brainwashed with Islam lessons, but a Christian president praying in the White House is outrageous.

That’s what CNN and other anti-Trumpers suggested when they mocked President Trump for participating in a prayer circle with evangelical leaders in the Oval Office Wednesday.

The religious leaders, who are part of the Faith Advisory Board, had attended an all-day meeting with the White House’s office of public liaison, whose director is Omarosa Manigault, an ordained minister.

The CNN Religion Twitter account sarcastically bleated: “Under fire, Trump prays with evangelicals in the White House.”

CNN host Erin Burnett mocked the prayer circle as “very strange” when she teased the segment on her show: “The president bowing his head in prayer in the Oval Office and all these people sorta touching him. It’s very strange.”

Huckabee Sanders gave an awesome response to the hypocrisy:

Keep in mind that the pro-Islam, anti-Christian media never mock Muslims — who pray FIVE TIMES a day on their knees. Sarah’s father is Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, and an ordained minister.

She told reporters: “The idea that somebody would only pray when they’re in crisis makes you miss the entire point of what prayer is about. You should do it every day. It would be ridiculous to think that’s the only time you might do that — in a time of crisis.”The hypocrisy of leftists mocking prayer in the White House is laughable when you consider they stay silent about the Islamic brainwashing of American children across the nation. 

Liberals just cant find the truth to save their @$$

LGBT Liberals Get Brutal Dose Of Reality When They Show Up At Chicago Muslim Convention

During a conference led by leftist darling Linda Sarsour in Chicago, a pro-LGBT group excitedly arrived to hear the anti-Trump speaker spew her lies. However, as soon as they arrived at the convention, they were greeted by a brutal dose of reality.

Despite the left claiming to champion civil rights for fringe social groups, all of the minority interests are quickly sacrificed to Islam’s political push for the Islamization of the West. Now that the tiny Muslim minority is growing in strength and number, these groups are discovering that the liberal love is merely a photo op for the real agenda — creeping Sharia law.

When 2017’s Islamic Society of North America convention was scheduled to take place in Chicago with Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour headlining as speaker, pro-LGBTQ group Muslims for Progressive Values donned their flamboyant hijabs, flexed their gay pride, and headed to the Democratic paradise. However, as soon as they arrived to hear self-proclaimed LGBT ally Sarsour give her address, they were removed from the event because their homosexual stance is vehemently rejected and brutally punished in Islam.

The American Spectator reports that the group, which includes Muslim queers and feminists along with their liberal supporters, was barred from conference seating after event coordinators discovered their pamphlets advocating LGBT and women’s equality in Islam. The group was then forced to close up their information booth and members were escorted out by ISNA staff.

“We’re really sick and tired of the hypocrisy of them (ISNA) claiming to be LGBT allies,” said Ani Zonneveld, founder and president of Muslims for Progressive Values, a faith-based human rights organization founded in 2007. “They’re only an ally when the camera is on.”

Frank Parmir, a Muslim convert and organizer with MPV’s Columbus chapter, and Michael Toumayan, the Human Rights Campaign’s religion and faith program manager, confirmed that a Muslim administrator dressed in “Salafi garb” preached to them that homosexuality is considered a serious sin in Islam. The man explained that “to be a ‘real Muslim,’ one must assert that homosexuality is a sin,” Parmir quoted.

Parmir said that all MPV members were forced out by “a group of men in suits,” including ISNA Conventions, Conferences, and Special Projects Director Basharat Saleem, who told them that their values weren’t compatible with Islam.

“He wasn’t sure that they could allow us to stay because of some of the literature and some of the positions we were advocating,” Parmir said. “They would have to think about it and get back to us…They were okay with HRC’s advocacy for gay rights. They were not okay with MPV’s advocacy that gays should find unrepentant inclusion with the Muslim community and that women should be given equality.”

Soon after their expulsion from the event, MPV published a statement condemning ISNA for their “hypocrisy.”

Does Sharpton REALLY care about Black Lives – NO!

Does Mr Sharpton really care about Black Lives? If actions speak louder than words then Mr Sharpton could care less. For years black crime and killing in Chicago has been off the charts… No word from Mr Sharpton. All these years he could have been an influence in helping the black community AND nothing!

They hate President Trump sooooo much that even when he send “The Feds” into help Sharpton is against it!
So who does he care for?

Sharpton critical of decision to send more agents to Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) – The Rev. Al Sharpton has voiced concerns about the federal government’s announcement that more federal agents were sent to Chicago to deal with the city’s violence problems.

Sharpton, who heads the National Action Network, held a news conference Thursday at a church on the city’s West Side. He says everyone wants to stop the shooting in Chicago, “but you’ve got to have the will and the determination to do it on all sides and be fair and just.”

Chicago police, federal agents and prosecutors said last month that 20 more Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were sent to Chicago as part of a special team tasked with curbing violence in the city. President Donald Trump has said gun violence in Chicago is at “epidemic proportions.”

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

Evan Sayat

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The US never tried to “influence” other elections? Sure!

Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu.

The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.
Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.
In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.
He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records.
Mr. Netanyahu survived the election, and the U.S. spending was not deemed illegal because the State Department never put any conditions on the money. Investigators also said OneVoice didn’t turn explicitly political until days after the grant period ended.

“The State Department ignored warnings signs and funded a politically active group in a politically sensitive environment with inadequate safeguards,” said Sen. Rob Portman, chairman of the investigative subcommittee. “It is completely unacceptable that U.S. taxpayer dollars were used to build a political campaign infrastructure that was deployed — immediately after the grant ended — against the leader of our closest ally in the Middle East. American resources should be used to help our allies in the region, not undermine them.”

Sen. Claire McCaskill, the ranking Democrat on the subcommittee, said the Obama administration followed the law.
But she said their investigation exposed “deficiencies” in the State Department’s policies.
OneVoice had been politically active in Israel’s 2013 elections, which should have been a red flag to U.S. officials to put strict controls on how American taxpayers’ money was spent, the investigation said.
While it wouldn’t have necessarily disqualified the group, the State Department should have written a specific prohibition against using American money to influence a foreign election, the subcommittee said.
It’s part of a pattern of bad behavior at the State Department. The Government Accountability Office reviewed more than five dozen department grants and found officials cut corners and missed red flags in 80 percent of them.
The Israeli Embassy didn’t respond to a request for comment on the findings.
State Department spokesman John Kirby said they had not had time to go through the report and he couldn’t comment on it. He also didn’t comment on Mr. Ratney’s practice of deleting official records.
The Senate investigation found that the State Department funded two sister groups — OneVoice Israel and OneVoice Palestine — to hire a U.S. political consulting firm, recruit volunteers, build a social media network and run advertising.
But it was also building its anti-Netanyahu political strategy, at a time when the Israeli leader was quite controversial in U.S. politics, celebrated by Republicans but feuding with the Obama White House over differences in policy.
OneVoice told at least two State Department officials of its political plans, even as it was collecting taxpayer money. But the department “took no action in response,” the subcommittee concluded.
Mr. Ratney, one of the two officials, said he remembered getting an email from OneVoice, but didn’t recall seeing the attached file detailing the group’s political strategy.

Maine has to hire AMERICANS for local jobs. REALLY!

Shortage Of Foreign Labor Forces Maine Businesses To Hire Local Workers

Businesses in Bar Harbor, Maine are turning to locals to make up for a shortage of foreign guest workers that normally fill summer jobs in the bustling seaside resort town.

Because the H-2B visa program has already reached its annual quota, Bar Harbor’s hotels, restaurants and shops can’t bring in any more foreign workers for the rest of the busy summer tourist season. Like hundreds of similar coastal resort towns, Bar Harbor has for many years depended on the H-2B visas for temporary workers. The program allows non-agricultural companies to bring in foreign labor if they are unable to find suitable employees domestically.

Now they are coming up with creative ways to attract local labor, reports the Bangor Daily News.

The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce will hold a job fair Saturday in an effort to recruit significant numbers of workers from the region. Just about every kind of business in the town is looking for help, says chamber executive director Martha Searchfield.

“All types of businesses — retail, restaurants, the tour boats, all the trips, everything. All types of workers are needed,” she told the Daily News.

The shortage is so acute that companies are sweetening incentives for local workers. Searchfield says some businesses are offering flexible schedules that might appeal to older workers who might be interested in working only a day or two each week. And other companies have gone so far as to offer higher wages to entice locals.

The annual limit for H-2B visas is set at 66,000, half for the winter season and half for the summer. In the past, workers who had previously come to the U.S. on H-2B visas were given a “returning worker” exemption and not counted against the cap. Congress did not include the returning worker provision in this year’s authorization, but instead gave Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly the power to raise the limit by as many as 70,000 extra visas for the summer.

Several lawmakers are pressuring the Trump administration to authorize more H-2B visas, and DHS is expected to announce a higher cap this month. Independent Maine Sen. Angus King has introduced legislation that would restore the returning worker rule.

In the meantime, Bar Harbor’s businesses are scrambling to find locals to pick up the slack.

Chelsea Clinton Accused of Stealing Book Idea.
I guess truth, integrity and honesty seems to be something the Clintons never really got a hold of.

Poor Chelsea never had a chance, the essence of White Privilege from a true 1%er.

Think about all the “dark deals” she has been exposed to how many things her parents have gotten away with. wonder what she saw and beleives to be true.

Chelsea Clinton is being accused of stealing the idea for her book She Persisted and is facing a lawsuit for it.

Christopher Janes Kimberley, 56, of Albany, N.Y., is suing Clinton and her publisher, Penguin Random House, in federal court for $150,000 for copyright infringement the New York Post reports.

In the court documents, Kimberley alleges that Penguin Young Readers president Jennifer Loja passed Kimberley’s submission to Clinton. Kimberley’s book, A Heart Is the Part That Makes Boys And Girls Smart, has a similar premise of focusing on inspiring women through history. It also has similar images and at least three of the same quotes that are in Clinton’s book.

“The appearance of impropriety is striking,” court documents filed by Kimberley say.

She Persisted is a New York Times bestseller and was published on May 30. Kimberley filed a cease and desist order in April for Clinton’s book not to be published.

“I did months of painstaking research on my book. Her version looks like a ninth-grade homework assignment,” Kimberley told the Post. “I am in disbelief.”

SALLY FIELD Wants To Know Why America “Voted For This Man?

0

Actress Sally Field joined Chelsea Handler on the comedian’s Netflix talk show, Chelsea, to express frustration about the results of the presidential election.

Field made several comments that received tumultuous applause from audience members, and demonstrated perfectly how disconnected the Hollywood elites are from the American people.

“I WANT TO KNOW WHY THEY VOTED FOR THIS MAN, WHO DOES NOT STAND FOR ANYTHING.”

Of the final two major candidates in the American presidential election

Donald Trump was the only one who arguably stood for anything.

A strong border security, a stronger vetting process for those wishing to come into the country

and a pledge to bring jobs back to America were just three of the major platform points that Trump ran on.

His opponent, Hillary Clinton, led a campaign whose platform was not so much about what she was going to do while in office

but instead on keeping Trump out of the White House.

“IF YOU LOOK AT HIS PAST, IF YOU LOOK AT HIS HISTORY, THERE’S NO EVIDENCE THAT HE CAN DO ONE SINGLE THING THAT HE SAYS HE’S GOING TO DO.
NOT ONE SINGLE THING.”

Donald Trump has a long history of being a successful businessman.

From popular hotels to steaks, there is ample evidence that Trump has a can-do attitude

that may help in while serving as president.

“I DON’T THINK THAT ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM ARE BAD AND HORRIBLE PEOPLE.
I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND.”

This might have to do with the fact that Hollywood elitists have created an echo chamber

within their tiny bubble on the West Coast

and they are only exposed to news and information that has been filtered through Left-Wing sources.

To them, Obamacare is successful, over 90 million people are not out of work, ISIS is on the run, and life is good.

To the rest of the country, who have been suffering under eight years of fundamental transformation, it is a different story.

“…THEY CALL THIS A DEMOCRACY, YET THE PEOPLE ARE NOT GETTING THE REPRESENTATION THAT THEY VOTED FOR.”

This goes to show just how dim some of the “great-minds” of Hollywood can be.

America is not a Democracy, it never has been, but is instead a Democratic Republic.

The reason why the Founding Fathers designed it that way was to prevent a situation

in which heavily populated areas would decide how the rest of the nation should be ruled.

With the Electoral College, every area, from the vast farmlands to the big cities, gets a say.

The Threat of ISIS in the U.S. is Real… No JOKE!

ISIS, Arc of Instability, Map
ISIS, Arc of Instability, Map

Currently, there are at least 1,000 active FBI investigations for ISIS acts or conspiracies in the United States.

45% were arrested as they attempted to join ISIS fighters overseas. 30% were plotting to carry out attacks on U.S. soil.

This article gives excerpts of the Islamic State’s recruitment magazine. If you read the article in full you will fully understand the terror attacks in Europe and realize the threat in the U.S. is real.

********************

DABIQ was the Islamic State’s first recruitment magazine and successfully recruited Muslims from around the world.

At least 300,000 foreign Islamists from over 80 countries joined ISIS in Syria since 2014. It has been estimated that at least 10% of those ISIS fighters have left Syria and returned to their country of origin.

By 2015, ISIS had control over the Syria-Turkish border and the people who were allowed to cross over into Turkey as “refugees” were ISIS fighters.

Many thousands of these false “refugees” made their way to Western countries. Turkey provided many of them with false “Syrian” passports and I.D.

Additionally, ISIS has been recruiting successfully in African countries. Many thousands of young, male ISIS supporters have left Africa as “migrants”. This has been ongoing for three years. Ships leave regularly from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya.

In recent weeks many thousands of young male Muslims from Africa have arrived in Italy on these ships. Previously they’ve landed in Greece and France.

This is a well-planned war that is just beginning to reach fruition.

ISIS fighters have been placed in every Western country, partly due to the Islamic State’s two recruitment magazines, Dabiq (a city in Syria) and Rumiyah (Rome).

Via its recruitment magazines, ISIS has successfully recruited its main army, now it’s focus is Rome and the West, via its recent publication Rumiyah. The following is information about the Islamic State’s first magazine, Dabiq, and demonstrates the mentality behind its recruitment. It also explains the terror attacks currently happening in Europe.

Issue #8:  Shari’ah Alone Will Rule Africa

ISIS has an intense interest in Africa, where they are successfully persuading al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups, such as Muslim Brotherhood, to join them in jihad. They easily recruit members because all Islamist groups have the same goal of imposing Islamic Law on the World.

Quranic verses and sections of Hadith (traditions of Muhammad) are used to back their claims that ISIS is fulfilling what the Quran demands that Muslims must do — jihad. The magazine demonstrates via photos and statements of Islamic Doctrine, that ISIS is following the exact behavior of Muhammad — who is the “ideal” Muslim.

Many al-Qaeda branches in north and central Africa have pledged their allegiance to ISIS. ISIS has also received pledges of allegiance from al-Shabaab in Somalia and Boko Haram in Nigeria. Boko Haram controls 6 times more territory than ISIS.

Boko Haram has been massacring entire Christian villages. In January of 2015, more than 2000 Christians were killed in a 48-hr period. The Christian population has been reduced to half of what it was because of Boko Haram. And Boko Haram is now on board with ISIS.

An article in Shari’ah Alone Will Rule Africa justifies the destruction of ancient treasures of Syrian and Iraqi cultures by quoting segments from the Quran and Hadith. The article includes photos proudly displaying ISIS destroying ancient artifacts. The argument for this destruction is that ISIS is following the exact behavior of Muhammad.

ISIS says that artifacts in the Mosul museum were destroyed because they were “worshiped” by the public. ISIS condemns Iraqis because they have “national pride” regarding their heritage.

“The soldiers of the Caliphate, with sledgehammers in hand, revived the tradition of Muhammad when they destroyed the legacy of a nation”.

“The kuffār had unearthed these statues and ruins and attempted to portray them as part of a cultural heritage and identity that Iraqi Muslims should embrace and be proud of. This opposes Allah and Muhammad and only serves a nationalist agenda that severely dilutes the walā’ that is required of Muslims.”

(wala means loyalty and disavowal; a Muslim is required to love what Allah loves, and hate what Allah hates.)

ISIS emphasizes the need for future generations to be trained and to join ISIS camps. The Youth Camps include members as young as three years old, and includes training camps for girls. All children are trained in suicide bombing.

ISIS states that Muslim parents are proudly sending their children to ISIS camps and the issue includes photos of children at the training camps. By enlisting very young children, ISIS says that Islam will have future generations armed and ready to continue the fight for world domination.

ISIS also states that they send these children as “immigrants” to western countries.

ISIS emphasizes hijrah (immigration) as a recruitment message targeted at Muslims living in the West. For those unable to go to Syria, ISIS tells Muslims living in the West that they are obligated to wage jihad against non-Muslims in the countries that they have immigrated to.

Issue #4: The Failed Crusade

The cover of this issue is the ISIS flag on top of the obelisk at the center of St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. According to ISIS, all westerners are “offspring of the cradle of Christianity”. Therefore, Rome is a target.

The article calls on jihadists across the world to attack westerners “wherever they can be found”, and states:

At this point of the West’s crusade against the Islamic State it is very important that attacks take place in every country that has entered into the alliance against the Islamic State, especially the US, UK, France, Australia and Germany. Every Muslim should get out of his house, find a crusader and kill him. The Islamic State will remain until its banner flies over Rome.”

“We perform jihad here [Syria] while our eyes are upon al-Quds (Jerusalem). We fight here, while our goal is Rome.

We will not rest from our jihad until we are under the olive trees of Rome, after we destroy the filthy house called the White House. Today we are upon the doorstep of a new era, a turning point for the map of the region—and the world. Today we witness the end of the lie called “western civilization” and the rise of the Islamic giant.

“And so we promise you, O crusaders, that this campaign will be your final campaign. The Crusaders will be broken and defeated, just as all your previous campaigns were broken and defeated, except that this time we will raid you thereafter, and you will never raid us.

“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women. This is Allah’s promise; He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time right now, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.

O America, and O crusaders, know that the matter is more dangerous than you have imagined and greater than you have envisioned. We have warned you that today we are in a new era, an era where the Islamic State, its soldiers, and its sons are leaders. They are a people who through the ages have not known defeat.

“The outcome of their battles is concluded before they begin, Allah has declared it. And being killed is a victory. This is where the secret lies. You fight a people who can never be defeated.

“Send arms and equipment to your agents and dogs. Prepare them with the most modern equipment. Send them very much, for it will end up as war booty in our hands. You will spend it, then it will be a source of regret for you, then you will be defeated. Look at your armored vehicles, machinery, weaponry, and equipment. It is in our hands. Allah granted it to us. And we fight you with it.

“O Americans, and O Europeans. You will pay the price when your sons are sent to wage war against us, and they return to you as disabled amputees, or inside coffins, or mentally ill.

“You will pay the price as you are afraid of traveling to any land. You will pay the price as you walk on your streets, turning right and left, fearing the Muslims. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland. You will pay the price, and we have prepared for you what will pain you.

“So, O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Embitter their lives.

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever, kill them in any manner or way however it may be. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military.

The following is an excerpt from another article titled:

Reflections on the Final Crusade

“History repeats itself by Allah’s divine decree. There is no escape from this divine decree. The bulk of all jihad was against the cross-worshiping Romans with Sham (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine). Rome in the Arabic tongue of the Prophet Muhammad refers to the Christians of Europe and their colonies.

“Rush to Support your State, O Muslim, the Islamic State. It is very important that attacks take place in every country that has entered into the alliance against the Islamic State. The citizens of crusader nations should be targeted wherever they can be found. He should be pleased to meet his Lord even if with just one dead kafir’s name written in his scroll of deeds.

“Every Muslim should get out of his house, find a crusader, and kill him. Rely upon Allah and stab the crusader” should be the battle cry.”

Also in this issue is an article titled: The Revival of Slavery before the Hour.  ISIS goes into detail of why slavery must exist and why Christians must be slaves. The article states that enslaving the families of the kuffar and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah and if one were to deny it, he would be denying the Quran and the Prophet and thereby would be an apostate–which carries a death sentence.

Issue #1: The Return of Khilafah (caliphate)

In this issue, immigration is described as a key element of jihad.

“The more bombs you drop on our people, the more Muslims will realize and understand that today, waging jihad against the West and its allies around the world is beyond a shadow of a doubt a religious obligation binding upon every Muslim.”

ISIS states that because the Islamic State has established a caliphate, and this caliphate is the target of a crusade against Islam, Muslims are obligated by the tenets of their faith to immigrate to the caliphate — leaving behind a world shaped by “man-made laws” — to help defend a new world ruled by sharia law. But:

“If Muslims cannot come to Syria, they must defend the caliphate by waging jihad against the Governments of Canada, America and Europe, as well as the citizens of these governments.

“Presently, Allah has not facilitated for you to hijrah to our State. No Problem. Defend your religion where you are. Kill them with knives. At the very least, strike them in the face.”

“I call on you to either come here, or defend your religion where you are. To all my brothers in France, I say to them: Start carrying out individual attacks. Be wolves on the earth, for each man amongst you can be equivalent of an entire army.”

ISIS then attempts to galvanize global jihadists by claiming it has achieved that which al-Qaeda’s founding documents describe as the goal of al-Qaeda’s jihad: the goal of Restoring the Caliphate.

This has proven very effective in recruiting al-Qaeda members who feel al-Qaeda has moved too slowly at achieving that goal.

ISIS says it has established an infrastructure in Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt, all supported by an operating base in Libya, and that ISIS will eventually be leveraged to launch a jihad against Israel.

“Whichever group can liberate al-Aqsa Mosque in Israel and raise the victorious banners of jihad atop al-Mukabber Mount in Jerusalem, that group, whether al-Qaeda or another group such as ISIS, will claim control of the “Global Jihad” movement.”

Praying in the streets: A sign of bad things to come

0
Muslim, Islam, Prayer, NY, Brooklyn, Alpine Theatre
Muslim, Islam, Prayer, NY, Brooklyn, Alpine Theatre

At the start of Eid, Arabic Twitter was filled with photos of Muslims praying in the streets all throughout Europe and in America.

Arabic Twitter boasted about Islamic supremacy, but also how close they are to enforcing Islam on the world.

If any other group blocked streets or sidewalks and businesses, the police would never allow it. So why is it that Muslim have more rights than the rest of us?

The photo is in Brooklyn. Why are these men praying in the street when Brooklyn has 98 mosques? And some of the mosques in Brooklyn are “Mega Mosques” which can hold many thousands.

Added to the number of “officially” listed mosques, there are many “prayer spaces” throughout Brooklyn inside workplaces and there are even apartments rented out specifically meant to hold Muslim prayer groups. There is no reason to pray in the streets or on sidewalks.

But this is happening throughout America, not just in Brooklyn.

They pray in the streets for a reason. And it’s a very bad sign of things to come.

Muslims purposefully pray in the streets and public areas to make their presence felt and to show their superiority. They block traffic, they block parking, and they block pedestrian walkways.

And no matter how many mosques are built, they will continue to do this. This is how they take over entire neighborhoods, and then large blocks of cities. This is how “No Go” zones are formed in Europe. It is a well-designed system and it is based on the Islamic Doctrine on Immigration.

Muhammad outlined the rules for Muslims who immigrate. He stated that Muslims must form a separate body and keep their own laws and eventually make the host country comply with Islamic Laws.

Muhammad forbade Muslims to immigrate to a non-Muslim country if they are doing it to pursue their own personal gain. When Muslims immigrate they must do it with the ultimate goal of spreading Islam and making Islam victorious.

Muslim immigration is considered to be a transitional period of preparation for changing the native society from an open society to an Islamic society. 

My firsthand experiences with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Libya and Syria have taught me many things. One repeated lesson learned was the deviousness in which they gained access to every part of society and government — slowly, over time — almost unnoticed.

My husband and I had noticed the constant building of new mosques in Cairo—even though new ones were unnecessary. The existing mosques were predominantly empty at prayer times and on Fridays (Muslim holy day). There was no need for new mosques, yet they were being built.

Then the Muslim Brotherhood began bussing in men from the countryside. We found out later these men were paid. The Muslim Brotherhood has enormous sources of funding.

Did these men go inside the new mosques to pray? No, the new mosques remained empty and these men prayed in the streets and blocked businesses so that people could not shop or do errands.

Friday was my husband’s only day off, so for many years Fridays were the day we did errands and our marketing. But over time, shopkeepers were so intimidated (and often physically threatened) by these large numbers of men, that shopkeepers closed their shops during prayer times.

Then the buses began to arrive earlier. The men blocked businesses and threatened shopkeepers who tried to open at the normal morning hour. You see at first, shopkeepers only closed during “prayer times” to avoid conflict. But as the crowds of men began to arrive earlier, shopkeepers could no longer open in the morning.

Shopkeepers throughout Cairo began closing their shops on Fridays and during the week at prayer times. This happened slowly, this closing of shops—so many people didn’t notice—until it was too late to do anything about it.

Over time this invasion of men, all wearing the Islamic garb, became larger and larger. It was like an Islamic army, there were so many of these Islamic-attired men filtering into the streets. If you were not sitting in the street waiting for the call to prayer, you were attacked.

So it got to the point where we never left our apartment on Fridays until after 1:30 (after the “noon” prayer), because if we tried to walk about in the streets earlier, we’d get harassed.

So you can understand why I am alarmed at seeing men praying in the streets of America. But there’s more. If it has reached the point that Muslims are blocking businesses and not using the mosques, it means much more.

I have many Egyptian nieces. I’ve watched them grow up and go through various levels of education. Fifteen years ago, girls never wore a headscarf, and it was extremely rare to see a veiled woman. Over the years, my nieces began wearing headscarves at school. If they didn’t wear one, they were viciously harassed, groped, and sometimes, punched.

Only years later did we discover why this transformation took place.

The Muslim Brotherhood had slowly gained positions in our children’s schools and universities and they pushed religion more than other curriculum. Not only were they “dumbing down” our youth by depriving them of a solid base of history, math, science and English, they were slowly integrating Islam into the various courses (ex: ancient Egyptian history was replaced with Islamic history; English was replaced with Quranic Arabic).

The Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated slowly and sneakily. By the time January 2011 arrived, the Muslim Brotherhood were well placed throughout society. They even had control of the media—most especially the western media who were posted inside Egypt.

Westerners did not receive the truth about what took place in Tahrir Square in January 2011. That protest was about something totally different, not at all about taking down Mubarek. But the Muslim Brotherhood bussed in men from the countryside and brought in their Muslim Brotherhood Youth—who are incredibly well-trained activists.

Within three days the Muslim Brotherhood began their violence and their stranglehold on western media.

Within days, hands were being chopped off for buying a bottle of wine. Couples seen in “public” were murdered in the streets. Segregation of the sexes was enforced via violence.

There was an epidemic of wives being falsely accused of adultery with no witnesses, and executed on the spot.

Attacks on women and rape went up 1000% — to force them to wear the veil.

Muslim Brotherhood preachers went on TV announcing that any unveiled woman must be raped.

I could go on, but I think you understand why I am horrified at the sight of Muslims praying in the streets of American cities. It may not happen exactly as it did in Egypt, but the signs are there that prove to me your schools and universities have been changed. That mosques are being built when there is no need for new ones.

Islamic Centers, where Muslim children are taught Islamic Law, can be found throughout America. Why are American Muslims teaching their children Islamic Law? Because American Muslims are living by Islamic Law and want future generations to enforce Islamic Law.

Sure, they follow the traffic rules and basic laws so that they go unnoticed, but there are Shura Councils throughout America. Shura Councils are Islamic courtrooms. These courtrooms do not follow American law or democracy.

Muslims are living by Islamic Law in America. Whether your state has outlawed foreign laws or not—Muslims are living by Islamic Law and teaching their children to live by Islamic Law.

Remember the Islamic Doctrine on Immigration: Immigration must have the ultimate goal of spreading Islam and making Islam victorious. Muslim immigration is considered to be a transitional period of preparation for changing the native society from an open society to an Islamic society. 

In a 2007 report conducted by the New York Police Department entitled, “Radicalization in the West” the NYPD identified the implementation of Islamic Law and the establishment of a Global Islamic State (Caliphate) as the driving ideology behind jihadists in America. The report also stated that: “Regular attendance at a Salafi mosque is a key indicator of ‘radicalization’”.

The report stated that Salafists follow Sharia (Islamic Laws) and that Sharia states that jihad is obligatory for all Muslims.

The NYPD report also identified “signatures” of “Sharia Adherence”. These signatures are wearing traditional Islamic clothing, growing a beard for men; and for women, it’s wearing the veil or headscarf.

In another research study, it was found that 97% of jihadis adhere to Islamic Law. This adherence is measured in observable behavior including the wearing of Islamic garb, head scarf, and growing an Islamic beard.

The study stated that when you see an increase in ‘signatures’ identifying Sharia adherence, you will eventually see an increase in violence.

My personal experience can testify that this is true.

Pedophilia May Now be Accepted As A ‘Sexual Choice’?

0

While it isn’t something you’ll see in the headlines of any major newspaper, pedophilia is one of those Leftists ignore until a “Right Winger” applauds your advocacy.

Then, all bets are off.

Ultra-Leftist magazine Salon published a series of pieces not long ago where they were actually defending pedophiles and the circumstances under which pedophilia was “acceptable.”

The sick and twisted acceptance of this practice is one that makes the blood boil, especially since I am the father of 5 young children.

Ads by
Once Salon cancelled its rubber-stamping efforts over pedophilia, BBC appears to have stepped up to take one for Team-Leftist.

Via The Daily Caller and Truth Revolt:

“It all began in September last year with the article ‘I’m a pedophile, but not a monster,’ which featured self-identified pedophile Todd Nickerson of the website ‘Virtuous Pedophiles’ classify his sexual disorder as a ‘sexual identity’ that needs to be met with some kind of compassion.

In a new video released Tuesday, Salon featured Nickerson talking openly about the nature of his sexual disorder, which he classifies as an orientation, and how he manages to resist the urge to molest children.”

As for the previous Salon piece:

“…in his very first sentence, anxiously declares that pedophilia is just a ‘disorder’ and likens it to an actual ‘sexual orientation.’

The tenor and tone of the article is one of a victimhood — fear that if he were ‘outed’ as pedophile, it may lead to ‘violence’ and ‘physical attacks.’

It should be noted that the author never hints that acting on the impulse to sexually abuse children is acceptable, and acknowledges that his ‘former orientation’ later led him to seek help, discovering that it is entirely curable.

He does not, it appears, understand his own tacit admission:

That the condemnation of nefarious and evil sex acts perpetrated on children, rather than social acceptance or acknowledgement of it as a sexual orientation, was the impetus for him to seek help.“

The continuing attempts of the Left at the normalization of homosexuality, pedophilia, and transgenderism shows just how important an ideology is over the rights of faith groups.

While a Christian can turn down baking a certain cake for a gay couple and have his business nearly shut down, the outrage toward Leftists as they attempt to bully people of faith into compliance is staggeringly muted.

Why do you people support these looons! No really. Time to teach Hollywood a lesson. They need to shut up. This guy thinks cops are more dangerous than people who break the law!

George Lopez Tells Trump To Deport The Police

Actor-comedian George Lopez has a suggestion for the Trump administration about deportation to make the streets safer, except it’s not criminals he wants deported, it’s the police.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Lopez can be seen standing next to a wall with the words, “The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer… You wanna make the streets safer deport the police.”

He then added in a comment, “This is not an indictment of all Law Enforcement , some still just beat you #gacho #georgelopezonhbo #TheWall @momorodriguez #gracias.”

A majority of the comments about the post were negative:

chelsea_aparicio San Antonio just buried a Hispanic police officer recently, he was killed in the line of duty. There is nothing but support for our police officers. You should be trying to bring people closer, not encouraging Trump’s BS behavior.

alberto.barajas.sr@georgelopez what a great way to end your career. Ask Kathy Griffin

capricornbeing@georgelopez I never had you pegged as a cop hater

francesca0910On my way to vigil for a fallen Dominican police officer in New York City she lost her life in the line of duty and left behind 3 beautiful children, so find your comments disrespectful and distasteful as a fellow Latino I’m very disappointed @georgelopez

arizona_nandoThey should deport your face Por feo… Gacho

giblocc_11bGrow up bro everyone hates the cops till they get robbed or shot stop being ignorant.

delosreyes_santiagoShould they first start with all LAPD officers who are Hispanic??? @georgelopez

john.madeuce@georgelopez how can you say something like that? Why don’t you do a ride along with a local Police Department so you can see what we actually do!

ebay44guitar@georgelopez I thought you were better than this.

mr_s_fernandez@georgelopez Eres una vergüenza para los Hispanos! (Translation: You’re a disgrace for Hispanics!) Sincerely-Mexican Police Officer

After the backlash, Lopez set his Instagram account to be private.

Do you think that George Lopez’s post could be excused for an attempt at comedy?

I think hes just an ungrateful creep !

DeBlasio the Failure!

0

It seems to be a habit among Democrat leaders. a Mayor and a Governor feel like they have the right to waste tax payer dollars for a mission they have no legal or moral right to get involved in.

Hundreds of grieving cops, family, and neighbors held a candle light vigil at the 46th precinct in the Bronx Saturday night in memory of assassinated wife, mother of three and NYPD Officer, Miosotis Familia. Familia was ambushed and shot the head as she sat in a police vehicle early Wednesday by a cop-hating felon, Alexander Bonds, who was shot dead by officers who responded to the scene. One person not at the vigil was Officer Familia’s ultimate boss, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio.

Instead of being in the city when he was needed, NYC’s socialist Mayor Bill DeBlasio decided to take an all-expenses paid junked to Hamburg, so he can make two speeches to the anti-capitalism demonstrations at the G-20 summit rather than attend the vigil. According to the Mayor’s spokesman, DeBlasio made the decision to go to Germany on Thursday afternoon the day after Officer Miosotis was killed, while NY City was still very shaken about the news of the murder.

But doing his regular radio show DeBlasio admitted that his spokesman was lying, saying he received the invite two weeks ago. “The announcement of the trip was going to be a few days earlier … then we had the horrible shooting … and it was important to focus on that.”

DeBlasio has not been supportive of NY’s Bravest during his term as mayor which lead police officers to turn their backs on the mayor as he spoke at officers’ funerals in Dec. 2014 and Jan. 2015.

Some New Yorkers told local TV Station WCBS they don’t think the mayor has his priorities straight.

“It’s disgusting. It’s terrible,” said Tony, of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. “He’s not doing his job. He should be in New York City.”
“I think it’s ridiculous,” added one woman. “Why is he there? He should be in the city.”
“The mayor belongs in his own city taking care of cops getting killed,” said James DeTommaso, also of Bay Ridge.

Judge Leticia Astacio, Who Smiled Her Way Through Arrest, Gets Maximum Sentence, Loses it.

Judge Leticia Astacio Sentenced – No Longer Smiling

Rochester, NY – Judge Leticia Astacio gained national attention when she was arrested at the courthouse on a DUI bench warrant. Video of her way smiling her way through the arrest went viral. After she was sentenced on Thursday, she’s not smiling any more.

Her original conviction began from an incident that occurred on February 13, 2016, when she was arrested by New York State Troopers for drunk driving. That incident occurred about 8 AM and the judge’s car was involved in a single-vehicle wreck. She refused to take a Breathalyzer when the troopers asked her to.

On August 22, 2016, Judge Astacio was sentenced to a ‘one-year conditional discharge’ that was continued until March, 2018, after she admitted to two violations of the discharge after drinking alcohol and driving under the influence
She was back in court in March when she beat four allegations that she had violated the conditions of her sentence: one that she drank alcohol on two separate occasions, and three about her ignition interlock, which will only start if the driver’s alcohol levels are below 0.03%.

Her ignition interlock data showed that there was a reading of 0.0651% on April 29, 2017.

Judge Astacio claimed that her daughter had driven, and that the reading was hers. It is not illegal for someone to drive a car that has an ignition interlock that is for someone else.

Judge Aronson ordered her to take a urine test to determine if there were byproducts of alcohol, but she didn’t take the test, because she was allegedly in Thailand living with monks.

Before she was sentenced, Judge Leticia Astacio spoke for more than 20 minutes about how she has done everything that the court had asked and more, according to Democrat & Chronicle.

She whined about the news media’s portrayal of her, saying that reporters are painting an inaccurate picture of her case. She complained that the media is focusing on her crime, rather than reporting on her being a good mother.

“If you Google my name you’ll find these stories,” she said. “The media is trying to break me.”

Over the course of the twenty minutes she complained about everything that she’s been through since committing her crime.

Judge Stephen Aronson wasn’t buying into any of her whining.

“You are not being punished for being a good mother. You are not being punished for having people in this community support you.” Judge Aronson emphasized, “Nowhere in your presentation did I hear one word of remorse or contrition for the acts that you were found guilty of!”

Judge Aronson went on, “You give me the impression that you are disregarding the judicial system and disregarding your responsibilities under it. You were ordered to perform a drug test, and you didn’t!”

Judge Stephen Aronson then sentenced Judge Leticia Astacio to the maximum jail sentence of 60 days, plus three years probation, and a skin alcohol monitoring device for six months at her expense.

Obviously not picking up on the hint, Judge Astacio’s attorney told Judge Aronson that Astacio wanted straight jail time, and didn’t want probation.

“What she wants, Mr. Young, is irrelevant.” Judge Aronson responded. “She will be sentenced to probation. She will be having someone monitor her in the future.”

Her attorney then laid it all out, saying that Judge Astacio was going to refuse to comply with her probation and she would violate it the moment that she’s put on probation, and then they would just come back to court.

“Then we will come back.” Judge Aronson concluded.

Judge Astacio’s daughter yelled out, “F**k you Judge Aronson,” and had to be removed from the courtroom.

Judge Astacio was elected as a Democrat in 2014 for a ten-year term. She worked as a prosecutor for a time in 2009 in the Driving While Intoxicated Bureau of the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office.

She continues to collect her annual salary of $173,700

Tiki bar owner ‘very sorry,’ closes up shop. The reason will come as no surprise.

Cloud Davidson told the Corvallis Gazette-Times that he trekked to Hawaii every summer when he was a kid, as his uncle, aunt and cousins lived on the big island — and Hapuna Beach was down the street.

Thus the name of Hapuna Kahuna Tiki Bar & Kitchen, which Davidson opened in downtown Corvallis, Oregon, on June 22, the paper said.

“A lot of this has to do with family,” he told the Gazette-Times. “That was a big part of my childhood.”

But it turns out Davidson’s Tiki bar would have a very short life.

Local residents of Polynesian descent — including folks with the Oregon State University Asian and Pacific Cultural Center — didn’t like Hapuna Kahuna’s Hawaiian name, cartoonish Tiki decorations and that customers were handed plastic leis, Davidson told the paper.

In other words, cultural appropriation.

“I unintentionally made a mistake and I’m very sorry,” Davidson told the Gazette-Times on Friday, adding that he planned on closing up shop Sunday, getting rid of all Tiki decorations and reopening Sunday night as a simple extension to the adjacent bar Davidson also owns.

“I’m very sympathetic to the issues that were brought up to me,” he told the paper. “And I’m not for a moment going to tell a person of color that they’re wrong for how they feel.”

But Davidson also told the paper some Hawaiians and other Polynesians enjoyed his Hapuna Kahuna Tiki Bar & Kitchen and wanted it to stay open.

More from the Gazette-Times:

A local Facebook forum also had numerous comments about the situation, including questions of whether it was appropriate for chefs to cook ethnic food that wasn’t from their ancestry, such as a Korean chef running a sushi joint, since the cuisine is Japanese; discussion on the origins of Tiki “culture” as an inauthentic fantasy mashup of tropical influences, and how there are Tiki bars in Hawaii; and comments on the evolution of Hawaiian cuisine to include items from numerous cultures, including those of Asian and Western countries.

The paper said Davidson also penned an apologetic Facebook post in which he noted, “With a heavy heart I have to admit I made a huge mistake with the Tiki bar. The community has spoken and I now understand that the Tiki bar is a form of cultural appropriation. This is not okay, and I am more than happy to change.”

California Dems suing Conservative College students – UNREAL!

California Democratic Party Sues Conservative College Students In Unprecedented Move

Three members of the Cal State Fullerton College Republicans have been named in a lawsuit backed by the California Democratic Party in retaliation for their work to recall State Senator Josh Newman, who was the pivotal vote in support of April’s $52 billion gas tax increase.

The Democrats’ lawsuit, which was filed in Sacramento Superior Court last Thursday, alleges that the College Republicans and other conservative activists “misled” voters in their successful signature gathering effort to recall Senator Newman. The suit names Amanda McGuire, Brooke Paz, and Ryan Hoskins (pictured below) as defendants in the suit, for volunteering their weekends to talk to constituents about the cost of Newman’s vote to the district’s taxpayers.

The recall effort gathered nearly 85,000 signatures in a matter of several weeks, due to constituents’ frustration and anger at Newman’s vote on the gas tax. The Democrat Party has alleged that recall organizers, which also included dozens of local conservatives of all ages, lied to voters about the true nature of the recall campaign by claiming that the recall would repeal the gas tax.

Brooke Paz, who serves as Public Relations Director for the College Republicans told Daily Wire, “This lawsuit is a baseless attack on the character of hardworking and passionate activists, as well as a shameful intrusion on the democratic processes that are my right as an American citizen.”

“As we just celebrated the 241st anniversary of our independence, my God-given rights are being threatened by the California Democrats simply because they disagree with me and my colleagues,” Paz continued. “Our elected representatives are supposed to govern by the people and for the people. The people do not want higher taxes, and as proven by the incredible amount of signatures we’ve gathered for this recall petition, the people do not want Newman.”

Once Democrats in the state legislature realized that the recall petition was moving forward at a record pace, they scrambled to develop a number of subversive methods that would stop the lawful recall by the voters. Democrats, who hold a two-thirds supermajority in both the Assembly and Senate, and hold all eight statewide elected offices, worked to change the rules on signature verification, tried to alter contribution limits, and fought for legislation that would push the election further back.
