Europe’s Gay community concerned about Islamists!

For decades, in both America and Europe, the gay establishment – gay magazines, gay rights organizations, and self-designated gay leaders – have been dictating politics to the gay multitudes. Those politics have been consistently left-wing and Democratic. Not all gays have played follow-the-leader, but most have, so that in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections Hillary Clinton won a far larger percentage of the gay vote than Donald Trump.

Even though Hillary had opposed same-sex marriage until 2013, had taken millions of dollars from governments that execute homosexuals, and was married to the man who signed the Defense of Marriage Act, the gay mafia had managed to depict her as gay-friendly while depicting Donald Trump, a longtime gay marriage supporter, as an enemy of gay rights.

Even more perverse than the official gay take on Trump vs. Clinton is the official gay party line on Islam. To get a good picture of this party line, all you need to do is glance through the archives of The Advocate, a gay news magazine.

“Islam is not intrinsically homophobic,” wrote Trudy Ring in a 2013 Advocate report about Muslim “activists and scholars” who, she claimed, were making progress in their effort to make Islam “more welcoming to LGBT people.” In a 2014 piece, Stevie St. John promoted a Muslim lesbian’s claim that the Koran “prescribes no punishment for being gay or transgender.”

True, but wildly deceptive: in fact, the Koran contains explicit condemnations of homosexual conduct, while the punishments for such conduct are spelled out in Islamic law. Then there’s the 2017 Advocate article in which one Samra Habib happily noted that after the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre, many news media eschewed anti-Islamic “finger-pointing” and instead “offered many queer Muslims a platform to share how they too were in mourning and how they often felt doubly ostracized” – victimized, in other words, by both “Islamophobia and homophobia.”

No more Natural Hair discrimination in California!

A new law signed Wednesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom makes California the first state to ban discrimination against black students and employees over their natural hairstyles. The authors of this new law say women with kinky and curly hair are sometimes subject to unequal treatment, and can even be viewed as inferior.

recent study by Dove says that black women are 80% more likely to change their natural hair to conform to social norms or expectations at work.

Chastity Jones was locked in a nearly ten-year legal battle after she says an employer took back a job offer at an Alabama call center because Jones refused to cut her hair.

“She said, ‘Are those dreadlocks in your hair?’ And I just looked at her, and I was like, ‘These?'” Jones said. “And she said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘Yes, they are.’ She said, ‘Um, well, we can’t accept that here.'”

It had nothing to do with the job,” she added. “It just had everything to do with my hair.”

Jones sued the company in 2013 for discrimination and lost wages, but her claim was dismissed. Last year, the NAACP filed a petition to bring her case to the Supreme Court, who declined to hear the case.

“She just didn’t make me feel like I was wanted there,” Jones said. “Period.”

Jones isn’t alone. In August of 2018, Louisiana sixth grader Faith Fennidy was kicked off school grounds because her braided hair violated school policy. A few months later, a wrestling official told New Jersey high school athlete Andrew Johnson he would have to cut his dreadlocks in order to compete.  

Dove executive Esi Eggleston Bracey spearheads the CROWN coalition, an alliance of corporate and community organizations that work to highlight bias that pressures women to conform to Eurocentric standards of beauty.

“What happens is, your natural hair is one way and you think you have to change that to go into a work environment — because the view of what’s professional is different than what your natural state is,” Bracey said.

US students rejoice about North Korea shooting off missiles!

Jimmy Kimmel interviews young people on the street asking them if they’d like to congratulate North Korea on their missile launch. They’re clueless.

California becomes the first state to ban discrimination against black people’s natural hair.


Is this a Christian country? David Horowitz explains.

David Horowitz
David Horowitz

Yep. There was a covert investigation into President Trump initiated by the former FBI Director Comey. He lied repeatedly under oath. Someone needs to be in jail over this!

David Horowitz’s Mortality and Faith: Reections on a Journey through Time brings to completion one of the most remarkable autobiographies of recent decades. The long-awaited sequel to Radical Son, which George Gilder called “The first great American autobiography of his generation,” Morality and Faith has been hailed as “a masterpiece of autobiography… a poignantly beautiful testament.

Ask AOC and her cohorts how they plan to implement the Green New Deal. They say, just like WW2 mobilization. So they’re talking about military rule! Who wants to live under a police state?

Radical Democrats want to do away with everyone’s cars. Which is probably why they want to take everyone’s guns! People love their cars and the freedoms that come with it.

DEMentia shines… now Trump is guilty for Epstein’s death!

Kimberly Morin, Gun Range

Now Democrats are blaming Trump for Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent prison suicide. REALLY?

New Hampshire conservative independent writer and activist, Kimberly Morin shares her relief after New Hampshire’s governor just vetoed proposed gun laws that were unreasonably restrictive.

AG Barr is visibly angry over the Manhattan jail’s mishandling of Jeffrey Epstein. He’s not stopping the investigation. Get ready…

13 (or 19) states have Red Flag laws. Of course California has them. Kimberly says Red Flag laws are the most discriminatory and destructive laws ever enacted. They kill Due Process.

AR’s are NOT assault rifles. It’s stands for the manufacturer… Armalite. They are semi-automatic, NOT automatic.


Are we safe from Socialism?

President Trump has repeatedly vowed that “America will never be a socialist country,” But America’s been sliding toward Socialism for over a century. Trump has stopped the slide toward socialism, but he won’t be president forever.

Bernie Sanders claims his 2016 socialist declarations were the springboard for the many 2020 Democratic hopefuls voicing their own anti-freedom. pro-Socialist promises. But the move to take away our individual freedoms and move towards socialism/ progressive started a century before Bernie. But for most of that century, the socialist movement (sometimes called progressivism) was surreptitiously trying to take over America.

In 1887 long before Woodrow Wilson became President, he wrote an essay trying to fool the American public about socialism. One it’s most famous passages was:

“It is very clear that in fundamental theory socialism and democracy are almost if not quite one and the same. They both rest upon the absolute right of the community to determine its own destiny and that of its members. Men as communities are supreme over men as individuals.”

That isn’t close to being true.

A critical tenet of Socialism is collectivism. But the version of democracy practiced in the American republic insists that (with some exceptions) the rights of the individual are superior to the rights of the collective or the government.

Today, Wilson’s political descendants present the false concept that socialism is the best way of attaining equality. Which is ironic because Wilson, who segregated the military, was arguably the most bigoted person to ever sit in the White House. He hated immigrants (notably from Italy and Poland) and hated African-Americans.

During his 1912 Presidential campaign, Wilson sounded a progressive/socialist theme that is still used by Democrats today.  He said,  “The Constitution was founded on the law of gravitation. The trouble with the theory is that government is not a machine, but a living thing.” A “living” constitution is a favorite concept of Barack Obama and is popular with the Democratic Party today.

Abraham Lincoln once said, “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”

Sadly, Progressivism/Socialism’s believers listened to honest Abe. John Dewey, who was a progressive leader, was crowned “the father of American Education,”  some even call him the best educator who ever lived.

During the late 19th and first half of the 20th-century, Dewey pushed to make school a tool for leftist-progressive social engineering.  Dewey advocated conveyor belt education—training a conditioned response in students to have them better conform to the “one, ultimate, ethical ideal of humanity, thus making them more equipped for their future workforce.” Many believers of the failed common core system used the words of Dewey as evidence it should be implemented. Sadly Dewey’s “ethical ideal of humanity” was democratic Socialism:

Shifty Schiff steps in it again!

Countless Democrats are using the recent tragedies in Texas and Ohio to push political talking points — and the latest liberal to jump on that bandwagon is Rep. Adam Schiff of California.

This week, Schiff joined the chorus of Democrats pointing fingers at President Donald Trump and calling for more gun control after shootings took place in three parts of the country over the last two weekends.

But while that response was largely predictable, the California liberal made a surprising statement when he suggested that “white supremacist violence” was a bigger threat to Americans than foreign terrorist groups.

“We just had a hearing in the Intelligence Committee about this, because the threat domestically from white supremacist violence now I think is eclipsing the threat from the doctrinations of ISIS and al-Qaida and the like in terms of domestic crimes,” the Democrat said, according to KABC-TV.

Schiff currently chairs the House Select Committee on Intelligence, arguably one of the most powerful groups of lawmakers in Washington.

The Democrat tried to tie President Trump to the recent violence, using rhetoric on immigration to suggest that there was a link.

“We can speak out against this hate. We can condemn the president when he engages in it,” Schiff said.

Trump, for his part, specifically condemned white supremacy and all forms of racism shortly after the Texas shooting at an El Paso Walmart.

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated,” the president said. “Hate has no place in America.”

But Schiff didn’t seem to accept the president’s gesture.

“To hear the president today talk about we all need to be united — well, he’s the biggest part of this problem in terms of using this incendiary language, this dehumanizing language about people coming to this country being invaders,” the Democrat said.

Authorities currently believe that the shooter in El Paso was motivated by radical white nationalist views, and a manifesto believed to have been penned by the suspect appears to confirm this. However, that document also criticized Republicans and mentioned Trump only in passing.

Twenty-two people were killed in that shooting.

#TDS shines – Trump and Russians killed Epstein?

Accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s body was barely cold after a reported suicide in a federal prison when MSNBC personnel began chiming in with conspiracy theories pointing fingers at the Trump administration and the Russians. AM Joyhost Joy Reid insinuated that Attorney General William Barr was somehow at fault

This is somebody who not only is high-profile, who not only knew a lot of high-profile people, whose papers just came out of court just to let out of some of the documents related to his cases that name high-profile people, who is friends with the current President of the United States, who flew a previous President of the United States around on his plane. Who is alleged to have trafficked girls to a member of the royal family of Britain.

This is on the same level of a Bill Cosby. This is a famous person who’s now in prison. He knows a lot about a lot of people. His only out at this point would to talk about those people. So, he’s in this very vulnerable situation.

And then came the insinuation lacking any proof:

This Department of Justice does not exactly inspire confidence. Let’s just be blunt. William Barr’s Justice Department is not one you can readily simply rely upon and feel confident in.What do we make of all of this now that in this federal facility this person was allowed to be alone long enough to either harm himself or be killed by some—we don’t know what happened. We just don’t know

Chiming in with his own evidence-free conspiracy theory tweet was Joe Scarborough.

Trump wants to break up Immigration Judges Union! Who knew?

Trump wants to put 100 new immigration judges in place ASAP. That includes staff and attorneys to support the process. Some are questioning where the money will come from. But it’s probably cheaper to do that than to continue paying for detention housing and staff to manage the influx of migrants.

 


Fake media says all SHOOTERS were normal! REALLY?

Xander Gibb
Xander Gibb

Have you heard the new Liberal media narrative? Don’t even THINK of suggesting these mass shooters might have a mental health issue. According to Fake News… Mass murderers are perfectly sane people.

Xander Gibb, openly gay CONSERVATIVE talk show host of X-RAD says he’s sick of Liberals hijacking the language with political correctness. Stop with the pronoun madness. Pronouns are NOT offensive. Get over it.

Michael Moore announces he’s giving up the gym… because Republicans?


Will the affected women be believed in the Epstein case?

Leftists keep trying to paint Republicans as Nazis and border detention centers as concentration camps. That’s an insult to Jews and those who suffered through the Holocaust. There is NO equivalent to the atrocities happened in the Holocaust! To try to draw parallels demeans and devalues what REALLY happened during that part of history. Just STOP IT!

Johnny Carson had more class in his little finger than Jimmy Kimmel and the rest of the late night hosts put together. There’s no reason to be so crass.

 


How to topple the Left’s house of cards!

Guest, Liz Wheeler talks about her new book, Tipping Points: How to topple the Left’s house of cards! She says it’s easy… use the TRUTH!

With the Parkland shooting, it wasn’t that the shooter didn’t show any signs, or that others didn’t see them… it was the people in law enforcement and government who failed to enforce the laws that were currently on the books.

It’d be great if we could just add a new law and stop this problem (mass shooters) but there isn’t. We already have laws on the books. Criminals don’t follow the law.

Democrats use the tactic of binary choices. But their presented choices are NOT the only options and it’s NOT true. “Either you support banning all guns, or you are responsible for shootings.” WRONG! “Either you want national healthcare, or you want babies to die.” WRONG!


The insanity and anti-Semitism on the Left !

Larry Greenfield
Larry Greenfield

Study shows that weak men see no virtue in social welfare programs. Weaker men lean toward government socialized programs.

Larry Greenfield is a fellow of the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship & Political Philosophy says Bernie Sanders and Bill de Blasio should really be identified as enemies of the state rather than be allowed to serve in government leadership. Neither of them believe in freedom and have aligned themselves with communist regimes.

The Left is out of control. They’re bullies. They’re violent. And now they’re putting a target on citizens who think differently by way of doxxing Trump supporters. This is totalitarian and Stalinist! They want to take down our system of government. There is a blood lust on the Left that is real.

Don’t spend 5 CENTS to go see that movie “The Hunt”. It’s SICK!


Trump derangement syndrome officially out of control!

Who WOULDN’T want to live in Baltimore? 5th highest murder rate in U.S. 22% poverty rate. Violent crime 5 times higher than national average. And don’t even ASK about the state of the schools! Sounds like paradise, right?!?

Founder of the Grassroots Conservative Association Group (GRCAG) and Retired USMC Colonel Corey Duncan says, white people, stop apologizing for being WHITE!

Did anyone else see the SEIU in their purple shirts cleaning up the streets of Baltimore? No? Me neither. Bet you didn’t see the MAGA hat Trump supporters doing it either did you? That’s because the media wouldn’t show you. But it happened.


Border deaths DROP under Trump!

Illegal immigrant children at Brownsville border station
Illegal immigrant children at Brownsville border station

Despite Democrats portraying the Trump administration as cold, callous, and hell on Earth for migrants, statistics show that border deaths have been on the decline under this administration in comparison to the Bush and Obama years.

Fresh statistics compiled by the United States Border Patrol show an average number of deaths occurring from the treacherous journey across the border rest at roughly 291 per year under President Trump – 298 in 2017 and 283 in 2018.

That is well below the averages under his predecessors – 372 under Barack Obama and 382 under George W. Bush.

Both annual numbers under Trump are better than any previous year with the exception of one, since 1999.

Wall Street Journal report in 2014 noted that border patrol could help lessen migrant deaths through “increased patrolling and more effective surveillance technology.”

They also note that lives could be saved if illegal aliens were detained at the border “before they get lost and perish in the desert and ranchlands north of the boundary.”

Imagine that.

If we have increased security and a wall to stop them right at the southern border it will actually save the lives of migrants. Since Democrats aren’t interested in border security, the obvious question is why are they okay with these deaths? Better to be in a ‘camp’ than dead out in the desolate desert, no?

Numerous 2020 presidential candidates on the left have tried pinning migrant deaths on the current President. They particularly sought to link the President to the deaths of a father and daughter who were photographed after drowning in the Rio Grande while trying to cross the southern border.

Hollywood, Politics, and Culture the Holy Triumvirate!

* Guest Host: Dave Sussman from The Dave Sussman Show & WhiskeyPolitics *

It was nice to see a non-politically-correct movie that takes you back to Oldtime Hollywood with a good story and good writing. Check out “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”.

With special guest Christian Toto, founder of the conservative entertainment review site, HollywoodInToto.

Go look for “The Peanut Butter Falcon”. It’s like a warm hug. It’s kooky and sweet.

New movie, “The Hunt”, seems to be very politically scripted. The premise is “elites” pay to hunt and kill “deplorables”.

*****

Dave speaks directly to those people who are not politically aligned with any Party.

Everything today from the Left is about “identity”. But individuals don’t typically look at gender, color, or sexual preference FIRST. They look at the person.

The Right and Left are diametrically opposed viewpoints on how to move forward in our country. The Left wants government control over every aspect of our lives. The Right wants more freedom with individual responsibility.

It’s time to get back to inherent liberty and judging a person by the content of his character.


Do the Left want fatherless boys?

* Guest Host: Dave Sussman from The Dave Sussman Show & WhiskeyPolitics *

Taking a look at toxic masculinity as it relates to the past week in the aftermath of the mass shootings, with special guest Mark Tapson, writer and Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Toxic masculinity has become so embraced by the culture that it’s just assumed that all men are toxic. Critics NEVER talk about the positive side of masculinity. There is a cultural effort to tear down traditional masculinity in order to blur gender lines and feminize men. Masculinity is the Warrior Spirit at the nucleus of the family.

The vast majority of these young male shooters have one thing in common… they are from fatherless homes. Fatherlessness is now a major predictor in mass shootings. We’ve ALWAYS had guns in this country, but we haven’t always had mass shootings. So what’s changed?

Cultural Marxism, expansion of oppressor vs. oppressed paradigm. The goal is to deconstruct basic foundations, especially the traditional family.


We are in the midst of a politically induced mass psychosis!

* Guest Host: Dave Sussman from The Dave Sussman Show & WhiskeyPolitics *

With special guest, Martha Boneta, Chairman of Vote America First.

What we’re seeing a complete, unhinged, radicalized Left because they KNOW they can’t win 2020 against Trump.

They hate Trump more than they love America. And now they’re doxxing and terrorizing Trump supporters claiming they are racist. No one should be in fear for the life because of their political views.

Congressman Joaquin Castro should be held accountable for inciting violence against Americans he is elected to represent.

If you’re not over the target, you’re not getting shot at. Trump is dead center over the target!


Democrat Socialist Snowflakes – Triggered!

Young Americans Against Socialism should get an EMMY for this video they filmed at a recent Democratic Socialists of America Conference.

It seems Comrade James Jackson of Sacramento, who goes by the pronouns he/him, had a big problem with this fellow socialists.

“Can we please keep the chatter to a minimum,” one comrade asked. “I’m one of the people who is very, very prone to sensory overload. There’s a lot of whispering and chattering going on. It’s making it very difficult for me to focus. Can we please keep the chattering to a minimum? It’s affecting my ability to focus.”

“Thank you, comrade,” the moderator replied.

At that point another comrade called for a point of privilege.

“Please do not use gendered language to address everyone,” the distraught socialist yelled.

Connection between Video Games and Violence?

When President Trump addressed the nation Monday about the mass shootings over the weekend in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, he cited mental illness and violence in video games.

More than 165 million Americans enjoy video games and billions more play worldwide.

An online manifesto thought to be authored by the El Paso gunman reportedly mentioned the combat video game “Call of Duty.”

The president said such games, as well as gaming websites on the Internet,  make it easier for troubled youth to be immersed in violence.

“We must stop the glorification of violence in our society,” Trump said. “This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace. It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately.”

Tim Wynter, president of the Parents Television Council, agrees with President Trump, saying most parents know that the entertainment media that a child consumes can have an impact on their behavior, their development and scientific research backs that up.

“I was just reading research from Iowa State that showed that a media environment saturated with violence is among the top three contributing factors to the mass shootings that we’re seeing playing out in real life,” he told CBN News in an interview on Tuesday. “So the President is right.  We have to make sure that Hollywood is stepping up and doing its job. Right now, they are marketing some very gruesome, dark graphic violence even in child-friendly franchises.”

“So Hollywood is now intentionally marketing very graphic, gruesome, dark violent scenes, sexual violence, and so we as a nation need to stand up and say, ‘No farther,” Wynter continued.

Wynter once called Ultraviolet video games “dress rehearsals for slaughter.”

“When you go to a movie theater or watching television and you’re seeing a violent scene, you’re having that impressed on your brain. But when it comes to violent video games, you’re actually the perpetrator.  Your hand is on the proverbial trigger,” he noted. “You’re instigating the violence.  You getting points or advancing through the gameplay by successfully slaughtering other human beings.”

Castro exposes names of Trump supporters! WHY?

Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro on Monday tweeted the names and employers of 44 San Antonio residents who donated the federal maximum to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

Castro, whose district includes much of San Antonio, claimed the donors “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” Castro is the twin brother of Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro and chairs his presidential campaign.

Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of ⁦@BillMillerBarBQ⁩, owner of the ⁦@HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc⁩.

Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’ pic.twitter.com/YT85IBF19u

— Joaquin Castro (@Castro4Congress) August 6, 2019

“Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump,” the congressman wrote, proceeding to name local businesses whose owners gave the maximum to Trump’s campaign. Eleven of the 44 donors shown in Rep. Castro’s post listed their employment as “retired.”

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh is demanding Castro delete the post.

“Democrats want to talk about inciting violence? This naming of private citizens and their employers is reckless and irresponsible. He is endangering the safety of people he is supposed to be representing,” Murtaugh told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“No one should be targeted for exercising their First Amendment rights or for their political beliefs. He should delete the tweet, apologize, and his brother’s campaign should disavow it,” Murtaugh continued.

Gen Zers are even MORE Confused!

Poll: 89 Per Cent of UK Gen-Zers Say Their Lives Are “Meaningless”

A new poll out of the UK reveals that a staggering 89 per cent of young people aged 18-29 feel their lives are meaningless and without purpose.

30 per cent of youngsters complain about being “stuck in a rut,” while 84 per cent say they are failing to “live their best life.”

One of the primary reasons cited for failing to achieve happiness and purpose is a lack of finances, according to 45 per cent of respondents.

The survey, conducted by Yakult UK, found that 80 per cent of people across all age ranges felt they were living without purpose, but that number drops to 55 per cent for people over the age of 60.

More than a third of Brits would completely start their lives over given the chance.

While by no means the only reason, many have argued that the emergence of mass shootings in the west by young men can partly be attributed to the nihilistic malaise that many teenagers grow up experiencing.
