How A Progressive Government Will ‘Disappear’ America

How A Progressive Government Will ‘Disappear’ America by Dr. Ileana  Johnson Paugh (Canada Free Press)

Ileana Johnson Paugh

Ed Note: Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh, who bills herself as a “Romanian Conservative”, knocks it out of the park with the editorial package she pens below:

It is interesting to note that, the more that is penned on the subject, the more skepticism prevails, the messenger becoming a Cassandra. The Greek mythological Cassandra was cursed to voice prophecies that were true, but her prophecies were not believed.

As evidence, Dr. Johnson Paugh sites this youtube video by Katie Hopkins – another “Casandra” of the UK:

Katie Hopkins warned  (“America Needs to Wake Up” – video link is 2:12 seconds), Americans about the dangers of unrestricted Islamic immigration and described in frank detail how it has affected the U.K. and Europe, contributing to a social decline and an inimical atmosphere. Thanks to Barack Obama’s eight-year islamophillic presidency, unrestricted immigration has spread to the United States.

And another brilliant tome written by Douglas Murray – yet another “Casandra” of the UK:

Douglas Murray’s “The Strange Death of Europe.”

Douglas Murray explained that Europe has been afflicted by a fatal disease that is impossible to cure.

“As a result, by the end of the lifespans of most people currently alive Europe will not be Europe and the peoples of Europe will have lost the only place in the world we had to call home,” said Murray.

Dr. IJP opines – The Mainstream Media, their acolytes and financial contributors; succinctly exposed:

The politicians and corporatist billionaires have decided that our civilization is passé and must be replaced by fresh blood from the third world—easily duped and manipulated.

The UN, the supposedly neutral NGOs and the continuing influence of their Agenda 21:

The U.N., with help from its affiliated NGOs (non-governmental organizations) aims to dictate population control and birth, diversity, border erasure, education, immigration, business, transportation, commerce, energy consumption, private property, housing, food production, water use, and healthcare.

For decades, they have chipped at our lives bit by bit, making incremental progress at local, state, and federal levels via their 1992 U.N. Agenda 21 now morphed into Agenda 2030. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s New Green Deal is not new, it is not green, and it is not a deal. It is a derivative U.N. Agenda 2030 on steroids.

The Elites (our “betters”) have “plans” for the rest of us:
Ed Note: Does anyone see the hand of George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg and other billionaires at work here?

Their plan is that each country is meant to become a “home for the entire world,” no borders, endless welfare, all controlled by the United Nations and the billionaire elites who hold the purse strings of each former government.

The tactic is to discourage the dream of a free and truly open society by tarnishing, obfuscating and simply lying about our forbearers intentions.  As Orwell said:  “Those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future.”

(the) American people seem to have lost faith in their own beliefs, traditions, and argue against their historical legitimacy to exist, an “existential tiredness,” or as my wise grandmother used to say, being tired of the good life and having democracy gone to their heads.

Dr. IJP then describes and lists her 11 bullet points of why immigration continues and has been justified:

We’ve heard many justifications as to why we are importing so many immigrants who refuse to assimilate and change the face and future of many countries:

We have an ageing population
Diversity is important
Immigration cannot be stopped
This is not who we are as a country
The downtrodden are flooding the West for a better life
Illegals come
It is very easy to deceive the authorities
The borderless world agenda

Multiculturalism
Destroying free speech
Europeans still believe that a core culture can be maintained

Douglas Murray she adds, states that:

They are here, there is nothing we can do about it
“The tyranny of guilt”

“If free countries have to have unsightly security controls, why don’t they have them around the national borders rather than around every single thing inside those borders?” (Murray, p. 333)

In conclusion, Dr. IJP states and quotes T.S. Eliot:

And academia has filled the heads of their students with pipe dreams of Marxism and communism, where everyone’s problems will be solved by the benevolent government.

As T.S. Elliott said, “dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good” and nobody will have to ever work if they don’t want to.

Overall, a brilliant package that tidily sums up where the Left is directing Western societies.

The only thing we must ask ourselves now is: Will we let them and  what can we do to stop them?

The Days of Even General Consensus Seem Lost

The Days of Even General Consensus Seem Lost (by LBNexaminer.com)

Ed Note: I found this editorial particularly poignant in it’s explanation of what is happening throughout Western civilization. Its application is universal and shows how we’re truly going down the rabbit hole into unprecedented territory for the experiment of self governing societies.  As the editorial points out:

Not since slavery has there been such a stark contrast between the ideologies of the states. America survived, but barely.

“We’re at war,” one frustrated Californian wrote to her local paper. “Not with another country, not with terrible diseases and plagues, not with ruthless dictators. We are at war with ourselves.” Red, blue, purple – America is a tangle of ideologies all pulling in different directions. These days, as the debates rage on, the map no longer seems to show state lines – but ideological battle lines. It’s not as if Americans have always seen eye to eye on every issue. But the days of even general consensus seem lost. Things that we used to take for granted – values like common decency and civility – are suddenly rare. Issues that were once uncontested – the value of a fully born human life – are suddenly grounds for fierce debate. In the states, the see-saw battles are even more pronounced.

In Illinois, New York, and Rhode Island, locals have watched leaders fight to make newborn killing legal – while Missouri, North Carolina, and Arkansas try to stop doctors from dismembering fetus in the womb. In one state, legal infanticide is a street party. In another, it’s a cause for community mourning. And it’s not just abortion. On education, sexuality, gender identity, immigration, and counseling, the gulfs are growing.

But how people think about the issues is just one part of the divide. As noted in the Harvard Political Review, “According to Pew Research, there are no issues that are widely considered top priorities by both Democrats and Republicans today. The average partisan gap between the parties’ rankings of priority issues in 2019 is 19 points, representing a 36 percent increase over the last two decades.” As reported by Pew, “[E]ven as recently as 2014, the top priorities of Democrats and Republicans were much more aligned than they are today.”

There are profound differences in how the two sides view the world today. Not since slavery has there been such a stark contrast between the ideologies of the states. America survived, but barely. Of course, the silver lining is that things can shift quickly. We’ve seen entire scripts flip on abortion after the New York law. In a matter of weeks, the number of people calling themselves “pro-life” jumped by 17 points. Change is possible – but it’s also up to us. As William Penn once said, “Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them … and as governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too … Let men be good, and the government cannot be bad.”

The Left Capitalizes On Terrorism To Target Political Opponents

The Left Capitalizes On Terrorism To Target Political Opponents by Ben Shapiro (TheDailyWire.com)

Chelsea Clinton

Of course Chelsea Clinton has been knocked lower on the “intersectional rights” ladder as she married a Jew and no one disputes her “white privilege”.  So when it comes to issues of calling out anti Semitism; she becomes fair game to the new left. As we have all seen and have history as our teacher, the Left is at its ugliest-best, when it eats its own.

Ed Note: for those of you not familiar with the term “intersectionality”, it is the buzz word de jour of the New Left. From their own words – “Intersectionality: a Tool for Realizing Human Rights”  by Yolandet (New Tactics in Human Rights)

The “Newspeak” of the Left continues:

Now Omar’s defenders have come out of the woodwork to suggest that criticism of her anti-Semitism was somehow responsible for the white supremacist shooting of 50 innocent people in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Many of them suggested that labeling Omar’s anti-Semitism actually represents a type of censorship.

Two protesters, New York University students and best friends Leen Dweik and Rose Asaf, confronted Chelsea Clinton, who had gently chided Omar for her Jew hatred. “After all that you have done, all the Islamophobia that you have stoked,” Dweik screamed, “this, right here, is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words you put out in the world. …

When the terrorists call YOU (the collective conservatives – guilt by association) a terrorist:

Her message was parroted by terror supporter Linda Sarsour, who tweeted: “I am triggered by those who piled on Representative Ilhan Omar and incited a hate mob against her until she got assassination threats now giving condolences to our community. What we need you to do is reflect on how you contribute to islamophobia and stop doing that.”

Anything to avoid the reality of Islamist doctrine. Read the Quran, it’s all there to be seen in black and white:

Here’s the truth: Radical Islam is dangerous. The Islamic world has a serious problem with radical Islam.

Appointing Iran to UN Women’s Rights Panel Sends “Worst Possible Message”   by (the Tower.org – staff)

large swaths of the Muslim world are, in fact, hostile to Western views on matters ranging from freedom of speech to women’s rights.

And here’s another truth: Anti-Semitism is ugly, whether it’s coming from white supremacists or Ilhan Omar. Making that point has nothing to do with the killing of Muslims in Christchurch.

And the Mainstream Media continues its “Crusade” to a globalist agenda and vanquishing whom they see as the “Crusaders”.

So long as the media continue to push the narrative that criticism of Islam is tantamount to incitement of murder, radical Islam will continue to flourish. So long as the media continue to cover for the dishonest argument that criticism of anti-Semitism forwards the goals of white supremacists, anti-Semitism will continue to flourish.

Precisely what the Left wants to avoid at all costs.  If it doesn’t fit the agenda and meet the narrative of the “talking points”, it’s not just wrong; its proponents are “bad people”.  Good Grief!

As if the following really need be stated, but apparently it must be shouted from the rafters if sanity is to ever return.

Honest discussion about hard issues isn’t incitement.

The F-35: Such a Complete and Utter Dog  by David Archibald –  21 March 2019

Ed Note: Here again, David Archibald shows how no matter which party is in power, corruption rules the game.  Our very existence as free societies absolutely depends on our technological and military superiority. Yet again, cronies of what has been termed the “deep state” are shown in Archibald’s further expose’ of the F-35 debacle.

David Archibald: Coming to the realization that Mattis was a bad egg as Secretary of Defense took a while, then it became blindingly evident when he supported transvestites in the military. So he went, unlamented.

Heather Wilson was obviously a bad pick for Secretary of the Air Force from the get-go. Though she had attended the USAF Academy, she had no interest in things that killed enemies of the Republic. Her book in 1990, International Law and the Use of Force by National Liberation Movements, is the sort of thing that Susan Rice or Samantha Power might have penned.

The Acting Secretary of Defense, Patrick Shanahan, has recused himself from involvement in any contract with Boeing, where he worked for 30 years. Fair enough in that a good man would be fond of the place he had such a long productive relationship with. That might color his perception when it came to awarding contracts.

But Heather Wilson had accepted $464,203 from Lockheed Martin for doing next to nothing. This was through Lockheed’s then management of the Sandia Nuclear Labs, so taxpayers picked up the tab. A whistleblower brought this arrangement to the attention of the Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General, with the result that Lockheed had to repay most of it.

Heather Wilson, current Secretary of the United States Air Force

There is another curious thing about Heather Wilson. In her 14 years of politics, Lockheed Martin and its employees had been Wilson’s largest contributor, donating $109,000. So Lockheed had identified her early as a potential future agent. They hit the jackpot when she was appointed as Secretary of the Air Force. Of course she should have recused herself from any dealings with Lockheed, as per the Shanahan example, but she didn’t. At least Shanahan earned his income from Boeing. Wilson’s arrangement with Lockheed had bad optics, putting it as charitably as possible.

Mattis was silent on weapons systems. In his position you could either be effective or leave open the potential for a lot of board appointments in retirement. He chose the latter. Heather Wilson was also silent on weapons systems, most likely due to a lack of interest in the things. She is going now and good riddance.

Someone else has gone silent on the F-35. During the 2016 campaign President Trump disparaged the F-35, no doubt on the good advice of his staff. Then while he was president-elect he negotiated a $600 million price reduction on the contract with the plane’s maker, Lockheed Martin. But getting a price cut on the F-35 is like buying a discount photocopier -– you will be gouged on the toner.

Having achieved the price cut, Trump then owned the F-35 and started saying how wonderful it is. Those sort of utterances seem to have ended.

After 30 years with one of the world’s largest aerospace manufacturers, Patrick Shanahan might be expected to know what distinguishes a good plane from a bad one. And it seems, he has been disparaging the F-35. Trump likes Shanahan and there is likely to be a number of reasons for that — he is not fawning, or incompetent, or slow-walking Trump’s instructions, or conspiring against him. He has managed major programs, and wants value-for-money. Shanahan is aware that the US Department of Defense is overpaying for a lot of its weapons systems.

USAF F-15

A USAF F-15

Recently the USAF committed to buying 72 F-15s, which are made by Boeing. The F-15 is a blunt instrument that first flew in 1972. Shanahan has attracted flak for the F-15 buy because of his past association with Boeing. But the notion of buying 72 F-15s has been around for years now. This article got the number right in 2015. Despite all the official denials to the contrary, the F-15 will be eating into F-35 sales. In effect it is going to be a shootout based on the best value for money.

As Defense One points out:

Pentagon budget documents also signal that the Air Force could buy hundreds of F-15s over the next decade. A tranche of 144 planes would “initially refresh” squadrons that fly Cold War-era F-15C Eagles designed for air-to-air combat. And the plane has the “potential to refresh the remainder of the F-15C/D fleet and the F-15E fleet.” In all, that’s more than 400 planes.

The reason for buying more F-15s is the same as it was in 2015: the USAF can’t afford enough F-35s to make an effective air force. In fact the F-35 should not be progressing, because it has failed to meet conditions necessary to begin Initial Operational Test and Evaluation. That phase started in December 2018 because it was given waivers.

Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense, said recently that

“the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky, but it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”

That may be because the F-35 is a finicky aircraft that requires its ground support to be just so, so it can’t operate from ad hoc bases. As this article explains,

if the power provided to the F-35 is not the perfect voltage, amperage or harmonics, the aircraft will not turn on when the ground crew needs to perform functional checks.

Rather than the 400-Hz AC electrical ground power used by generations of aircraft, the F-35 uses 270-volt DC power.

The F-35A while being towed at the Inauguration Ceremony on July 7th, 2006.

F-35

Cooling is another issue:

The F-35’s multiple electronic systems generate significant heat. During maintenance, the fighter requires preconditioned air (PCA) cooling at just the right temperature. The air must be very dry at a higher pressure than standard commercial PCA.

And there is another reason why the F-35 “gets killed on the ground in large numbers.” The US military is finding it very hard to get the thing in the air. Consider the statistics conveyed by these graphs:

F-35B Readiness – October 2016 to October 2018

The B is the version the Marines will try to use. Some 50 per cent of their F-35Bs can get into the air at any one time — the blue line. The green line is the proportion of aircraft that can actually be sent into harm’s way. That is somewhat lower, at about 15 per cent, and the trend is flat. So if you had 50 F-35Bs, then seven-odd of them could do battle.

F-35C Readiness – October 2016 to October 2018

The F-35C is the version that the US Navy has been assigned. They have never been keen on it and now we understand why. Both availability (blue line) and those aircraft that are Fully Mission Capable (green line) are both in downtrend. Things are just getting worse for some reason. Based on those statistics, if you had 50 F-35Cs on your flattop then you might get two or three able to be sent into battle at any one time.

This is truly appalling. These graphs were provided by a patriot in the US Navy. It is likely that the USAF statistics are similar.

Rand modelling in 2008 had most F-35s being shot down in a war with China due to the fact that it “can’t turn, can’t climb, can’t run”. Shot down or blown up on the ground due to the fact that the F-35 finds it very difficult to leave the ground — the effect is the same.

Shanahan has started preparing for war with China by changing the order of battle. The carrier USS Harry S. Truman is being retired early, ostensibly to save the costs of refueling. Aircraft carriers are now considered unable to get close enough to China to be effective in battle without being an easy target for Chinese long range missiles. So the money saved will be spent on more survivable systems. Two amphibious ships are also being retired.

What can we in Australia do to prepare for the battle ahead? Firstly Sweden has some 40 Gripen C and Gripen D parked up. We should do a panic buy of those. The RAAF has already started sending F-18s to Canada in anticipation of the F-35s that will be coming. We should bulk up as soon as possible with aircraft that aren’t clapped out and can go up against Flankers.

Gripen

Secondly, Australia’s military performance in WW2 was dismal until the high command was killed off in the crash of a plane taking off from Canberra. We need another fiery plane crash to take out the incompetents responsible for the French submarine decision and the F-35 debacle. If that takes two separate crashes, so be it.

Hannity battles Donna Brazile over ‘Medicare for all,’ Green New Deal in lightning round

Hannity battles Donna Brazile over ‘Medicare for all,’ Green New Deal in lightning round  by Joseph A. Wulfshon (Fox News)

Sean Hannity goes toe to toe with the once and still, darling of the Left – Donna Brazile. And now, its begun. This is where we’re going, dear readers. No sooner did Disney finish swallowing up Fox than the “Progressive Agenda” is being promoted as acceptable, mainstream thought.  Once globalist forces take control of this last loud bastion for free thought, free speech and free discourse, they will hold all the winning cards.

Soon, it will all be about “Climate Change”, “New sources of “Clean Energy”, “Guaranteed Income for All” and on it will go.

Think about how television media will look once the Left quashes Fox News in the USA and Sky News in Australia and the UK?

I paraphrase the lyrics by “Sting”:  “I’m glad that Conservatives love their children too”.  From a practical standpoint of view, apparently the Left do not.

Journalist Accuses Twitter of Testing More Extreme ‘Shadowban’ Technique on His Account

Journalist Accuses Twitter of Testing More Extreme ‘Shadowban’ Technique on His Account  by Charlie Nash (Breitbart News)

What is a Shadow Ban?:

From Wikipedia:

Shadow banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.

By making a user’s contributions invisible or less prominent to other members of the service, the hope may be that in the absence of reactions to their comments, the problematic or otherwise out-of-favour user will become bored or frustrated and leave the site.

For those not familiar, the major “Social Media” platforms like Twitter, Facebook and others have admitted to using their technological expertise to hide articles and information that THEY deem inappropriate for a variety of nebulous reasons.

Twitter admitted on Monday to “removing” a post from Federalist co-founder Sean Davis, but the journalist claims the platform actually shadowbanned, or hid the content from other users.

Then, on Monday, Davis published a follow-up post containing an email Twitter had sent to him which he says admits that the post had been shadowbanned.

MORE RUBBISH!: These platforms keep beheading videos, anti Semitic websites, videos and links. All manner of what most of us would consider inappropriate, but REMOVE conservative opinion? Absolutely and usually under the auspices of “hate speech”.

“Our priority is to keep people safe on Twitter. As part of that work, we err on the side of protecting people and sometimes mistakenly remove content that doesn’t break our rules,” claimed Twitter. “When those mistakes happen, we work quickly to fix them. We have corrected the issue.”

It cannot be emphasized, nor repeated enough. The LEFT around the world uses George Orwell’s “1984” along with Saul Alinsky’s, “Rules for Radicals” as their playbook.

“Twitter gave me no notice or explanation when it shadowbanned one of my Tweets about Russian interference in our elections,” he continued. “But what’s worse is how Twitter apparently gives its users the fraudulent impression that their tweets, which Twitter secretly bans, are still public.”

With the advent of the importance of Social Media Platforms – can future elections be skewed? You bet!:  The quote below is from the article, Did social media influence the U.S. election?”. by Vivian Michaels at (Endgadget). Endgadget reports on technology stories and issues. Michaels concludes:

Social media has become a major political tool these days. This is because it is able to find people anywhere they are at that particular moment. Additionally, social media influences peoples’ decisions because of the numerous sharing and liking of posts. Posts that receive a lot of sharing are in most cases more entertaining, interesting and engaging than the posts not shared. Undoubtedly, social media sites played a role in this year’s political process because they allow sharing and liking. This isn’t a good thing because influencers used the platform to spread and share falsehoods. The results can be one sided if one political divide shares more fake and misleading news than others.

One blogger from the lead article,  (BBrianL) remarked:

If people don’t see that we’re in a war for the survival of our Constitutional Republic they’re either willfully blind or stupid. It’s only going to get worse the closer we get to the election. The enemies of freedom in this country are legion led by the progressive left and their accomplices in the media and Congress (both parties).

Well said.

Border Patrol Apprehends 400 Illegals in 5 Minutes in Beto O’Rourke’s District — Beto Wants to Tear Down the Wall There  by Jim Host (Gateway Pundit)

MORE THAN 400 ILLEGALS WERE CAUGHT BY BORDER PATROL IN FIVE MINUTES  by Jason Hopkins (TheDailyCaller.com)

The Democrat Party in the USA using their mouthpieces at CNN and MSNBC keep lying to everyone that there is “no national emergency” at the US border.  Apparently, in the average day, approximately 550-600 people a day are arrested illegally crossing.  In the 1990’s, 95% of them were returned to their country of origin.

Today, the US Border Patrol is so overwhelmed, that now, 65% of those taken into custody are released into the US on a daily basis with NO EXPECTATION that they will ever be deported.

Todays Democrat Party has lost the “working man and woman” of the heartland of the nation and as such, is doing everything in their power to thwart the efforts of President Trump to secure the US southern border.

The new slogan of the Left in the USA (and much of the rest of the western world) – “If you can’t persuade them…..import them”.

They and the Left are all about power. They see any narrative other than their own “globalist” one, as an attempt to take that power away.

ScoMo’s Had Enough – No More Free Speech

ScoMo’s Had Enough – No More Free Speech by Augusto Zimmerman (The UnShackled)

Augusto Zimmerman

h/t Stephen Neil

Ed Note: I’m subtitling this article as :

“The Blunder Down Under”.

Zimmerman notes:

Within minutes of the terrible tragedy, Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison made a public statement, asserting that this man massacred worshippers in an act of “an extremist right-wing violent terrorism”.

Zimmerman corrects the record:

I was deeply troubled by the words employed by the Prime Minister as it could incite violence against so called right wingers. As it turns out, it appears that the terrorist who killed 50 Muslims at the mosques in New Zealand is not even a right winger.

Reality Bites: In his “manifesto”, the Murderer stated:

he is a self-described “anarchist” and a “radical environmentalist”.  In his own “manifesto”, the terrorist gunman explicitly stated that he wanted “no part of” conservatism. He also described himself as an “eco-fascist” and an admirer of Communist China.

The Mainstream Media of course failed to note:

In answering the question: “Were you a supporter of Donald Trump?”, he replied: “Dear god no.”

Giovani Genitile was the self styled “philosopher of fascism”, Mussolini’s spirit guide in forming his dictatorial, fascist government. In essence, fascism’s roots are all a directly dictatorial offshoot of Karl Marx’s socialist ideology:

Fascism was first established in Italy after the World War I. Its creator, Benito Mussolini, was the son of an anarchist father and a Marxist mother. In 1912, he became ‘one of the most effective and widely read socialist journalists in Europe’. In that year Mussolini was appointed the head of the Socialist Party opposing ‘bourgeois’ parliaments and proposing that Italian socialism should be thoroughly Marxist. ‘Marx’, wrote Mussolini, ‘is the father and teacher … he is the magnificent philosopher of working-class violence’. On the eve of World War II, he predicted: ‘With the unleashing of a mighty clash of peoples, the bourgeoisie is playing its last card and calls forth on the world scene that which Karl Marx called the sixth great power: the socialist revolution’.

Kudos to Zimmerman:

This should dissipate once and for all the false assumption that fascism is a right-wing extremist ideology. It is certainly not. To the contrary, fascism is actually an extremist left wing ideology. ***(Ed Note: But will it? Likely not.)

In the USA, Scott Morrison, (aka: ScoMo), would be a RINO, (A Republican In Name Only).  Malcolm Turnbull was far worse, but Morrison will likely find that the Left will not be anymore endeared to him for his attempt at pandering. The Left eats its own, it certainly will gladly chow down on a vacillating attempt at compromise to the Leftist Australian media:

So why would our Prime Minister choose to blame “right-wing extremism” rather than left-wing extremism?

As noted by a good friend of mine, “It could only be that Morrison subscribes to the leftist narrative, which seeks every opportunity to undermine conservatives and link us to violence.

….it is certainly incongruous for the Prime Minister to lead what is supposed to be a right-wing government, but falsely associate his own government and political party to a murderer by calling him a “right winger”.

Best of luck, but Zimmerman is correct:

Scott Morrison owes an apology to every supporter of his party and to every person in this country who considers him/herself a conservative.

I’m not sure exactly how “free speech” is actually effected by Morrison’s comments, but I certainly know that the “fake news” industry is smiling down under.  For as we all know, “It’s Trump’s fault” will be echoed from Perth to New York by Left wing purveyors of Orwell’s “newspeak”.  The convolution of Fascism as a right wing entity is merely a canard, exposed by the brilliant Dinesh D’Sousa in his book, “Death of A Nation”. 

Zimmerman is on target.  A commendable and short exposure of how the realists are constantly put on defense, while we continue to watch the erosion of Western civilization in “slow mo”, by the likes of “ScoMo”, right before our eyes.

Fox Corporation becomes stand-alone company as Disney deal set to close

Fox Corporation becomes stand-alone company as Disney deal set to close  by Brian Flood (FoxNews)

Former DNC chair Donna Brazile to join Fox News by Caitlin Oprysko (Politico)

Donna Brazile

h/t  Scott of the Pacific

As a follow up to yesterdays post regarding Jeanine Pirro’s “Justice with  Judge Jeanine”, we see today that the deal to wholly acquire Fox and along with it,  its Fox News and Fox Business News channels – Disney is now in complete control.

Fox as well announced yesterday that they would be hiring Donna Brazile. Brazile is the former Chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee and a committed “Progressive”.

Fox has begun their lurch to the Left (which they would likely call “toward the middle”).

From Caitlin Oprysko of Politico:

Brazile in a statement said she was “delighted” to join the network and said she was eager to represent Democrats for Fox News viewers, who she argued don’t “hear enough from Democrats.”

Brazile continued:

if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views.”

Oprysko added:

“Brazile had been a longtime commentator on networks like ABC and CNN. The latter severed ties with Brazile just weeks before the election after WikiLeaks published emails in which she tipped off members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign about questions at a debate and town hall during the Democratic primary.

Rubbish! Clearly we can see from Ms. Brazile’s past, she is an unrepentant Hillary Clinton supporter.  The motivation for this move at Fox seems beyond suspect. It would seem this hire is all about Disney promoting their PC agenda.  Along with David Evans’ post of yesterday, Conservatives face a tough fight as Big Tech’s censorship expands, we see a subtle, but steady move by huge corporate global entities to insure their elite power and status.

As I said in the previous post, this does not bode well for real vs. “fake news”.  Time will tell.

Jeanine Pirro’s Show Won’t Air on Fox Saturday After Remarks About Ilhan Omar

Jeanine Pirro’s Show Won’t Air on Fox Saturday After Remarks About Ilhan Omar by Joshua Caplan (Breitbart)

Hypocrisy: The theme of the day will be the rank hypocrisy of politicians and their all too willing sycophantic news media.

Fox is no exception!

For most of the previous week, the MSM has over and over again run cover for Congresswoman Omar and her unrepentant anti-Semitism. The Democrat Party and the MSM are so terrified that their coalition of the fringes will fall apart, they’ve jeopardized their most reliable donor class in America — Liberal Jews.

Why? The Left is so sure that they’ll prevent a defection of their donor sources, that to keep the illusion that they’re the party of inclusion, they’re willing to risk this awful dance with the devil. The word hubris comes to mind. Eventually, as we pointed out in a previous post (Trump Echoes Jexodus: ‘Jewish People are Leaving the Democratic Party’), American Jews will wake up to being fleeced by former friends while being escorted to the gallows. History, we hope, will not repeat itself.

Time and again, Omar, Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez have been called out for what could be seen as nothing less than blatant demonization and persecution of Israel and Jews in general across the US.

Does this matter? No, not if you’re a Democrat. (Or any Western Democracy’s version of the Left.)

So who’s the victim?  Jeanine Pirro, the outspoken critic of what she correctly sees as the hypocrisy of the Left, calls them out with facts. Who is punished? Why she is of course!  Yet again, the Left uses Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and George Orwell’s “1984” as their playbook.  Alinsky and his direct disciples (click on links!), Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton would be pleased, Orwell would not.

Disney acquired the lion’s share of Fox in December of 2017. The young Murdoch sons have a clearly different view on being part of the “in crowd” than their Fox-News-founding father, Rupert Murdoch.  What remains of “news” in the journalistic world will slowly but surely leave what was actually once the middle of the road. The left has pulled their constituents that far off the center. Fox will inevitably now — as a news corporation under the aegis of Disney — move further and further to the left.

Disney’s Leftist Credentials: Top 5 Companies Owned by Disney (DIS) The once “family friendly” entertainment giant has made the leap. Have you seen the ABC news in the USA? Virulently anti Trump. Have you seen the recent Star Wars franchise films? Counter cultural and implied political statements galore. Have you watched ESPN? They of the famous, “take a knee” promoting that America is racist? Need I say more? Well yes, it needs to be said and shown. This attack and its capitulation may be more orchestrated than the paranoia it engenders calls for, but you be the judge (I suppose the pun is intended).

The Big Three and the lesser known pundits of Fox:  Many readers are aware of the opinion shows on Fox News starring Tucker Carlson (Tucker Carlson Tonight),  Sean Hannity (The Sean Hannity Show), and Laura Ingraham’s (The Ingraham Angle),  but their Saturday shows featuring Jesse Waters (Waters World), Greg Gutfeld (The Greg Gutfeld Show), Ex-pat Brit, Steve Hilton (The Next Revolution) and Jeanine Pirro’s (Justice with Jeanine) are lesser known. Perhaps the most brilliant amongst them is Mark Levins’ (Life Liberty and Levin). If Levin did an hour of punditry on Fox rather than his interview style show, the Left would come after him with everything they’ve got. Over the years they’ve tried as he has one of the most popular syndicated talk radio shows, but he’s too smart for them and literally “Out Foxed” the Lefts attempt at bringing him down.

The Left has repeatedly tried and failed to take down Carlson, Hannity and Ingraham, so now their attention will be directed at the somewhat lesser known, but potentially easier targets.  They succeeded in tempering Judge Andrew Napolitano (a Fox News contributor) and now they’ve bigger fish to fry. For our readers interest, Napolitano has been completely vindicated in follow up investigations. Trump was surveilled. Whether you want to call it “wire tapped” or not, the deep state indeed via FISA warrant abuse, illegally surveilled Trump and his associates.

On to Judge Jeanine Pirro:  Pirro is a a former US Federal prosecutor and was a no nonsense Judge.  She “calls them as she see them”, a line she uses frequently on her show.

So What Did She Say?

“Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

The first sentence is a statement of irrefutable fact. The second, an opinion based on the fact. Something for debate and discussion? Not if you’ve made your bed with the “intersectional” devil. For those of you not familiar with the term “intersectionality”, here is an excerpt from the wiki page on it:

The term intersectionality was coined by Black feminist scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989. ”Intersectionality“ represents an analytic framework that attempts to identify how interlocking systems of power impact those who are most marginalized in society.[1]Intersectionality considers that various forms of social stratification, such as class, race, sexual orientation, age, religion, creed, disabilityand gender, do not exist separately from each other but are woven together. While the theory began as an exploration of the oppression of women of color within society, today the analysis is potentially applied to all social categories, including social identities usually seen as dominant when considered independently.

In her own defense against her own network:

Fox News denounced Pirro’s comments last Sunday, saying in a statement: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.

The network released a separate statement from Pirro, who said her intent was not to suggests Muslims could not be loyal to the U.S. “I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution,” said the conservative host. “I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

In a nutshell: Call out the Left and their acolytes and YOU’RE the bigot. Call the Left out for their blatant bigotry and YOU’RE the bigot. In other words, “Orange Man Bad” is their political philosophy and anyone seen on the side of Donald Trump is to be destroyed.  You’re not just wrong, you’re a bad person. How dare you!

This isn’t even a zero sum game:  It’s worse.  It’s the classic, “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”.

With Fox News’ current line up, we’ll see at least a counter weight to the Left. How long can it be that either by attrition, retirement or some unforeseen incident (As happened to Bill O’Reilly being “Me Too’ed” out of a job, before the news is all “Doublespeak” and “Newspeak”?  I suspect we of the realist camp are in for a very bumpy ride.

Judge Jeanine will likely be back soon, but she’s received a warning from the new bosses in town. It doesn’t bode well for Western media and its future.

Brexit: UK votes on whether to extend March 29 deadline

Brexit: UK votes on whether to extend March 29 deadline by (The Australian)

h/t Stephen Neil

From the sublime to the ridiculous.

Mr Bercow, (Britain’s Speaker of the House), has allowed four amendments to be voted on today, including one that calls on the government to seek an extension to Article 50 to make time for a second referendum.

Democracy is dead in the UK.  The “elected” representatives of the people apparently couldn’t care less what the largest voter turn out in UK history affirmed. The people want to be free of Brussels, but clearly the politicians don’t.

Only with a threat will the EU accede to a delay:

Today’s vote is on whether to seek a delay of at least three months to Brexit, but will be complicated by EU leaders who have warned they will only allow a delay if the UK agrees a deal.

And this is of course unlikely, so the slow motion train wreck continues toward the 29 March barrier.

Any delay in the Brexit process would require the unanimous approval of all 27 remaining EU member states.

European Council president Donald Tusk said today he would urge EU leaders to consider giving the UK a “long extension” to Article 50 to provide time for Britain to “rethink” its Brexit strategy.

The entire leadership of the UK seems to not notice that if they’d just take their heads out of the sand, turn and fight, they’d find out how much power they really have.  So what is it? Are they simply feckless or is there another agenda at hand? At this point only they know, of course, but it doesn’t look good.  If they’d simply let the date come and go at this point and stand up for themselves, I think they’d find an entirely different tune being sung south of the Channel once the dust settled.

Perhaps this is the real reason the EU is playing hardball without a bat?

The EU has also been reluctant to have any extension that would interrupt its European parliament elections from May 23-26.

A real PM would tell the public the obvious. “The Emperor has no clothes” – nor any real “Trump” cards…:-)  This shouldn’t be as interesting as it is, but break out the popcorn because it looks like we’re just getting warmed up.
