Carlson Stuns Socialist Professor On Air, Leaves Her Speechless & Stuttering After Her Comment
Posted by Sam Di Gangi | Apr 20, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Tucker Carlson gets a lib to admit what they really want live on air.
Everyone wants the rich to pay their fair share. Not everyone is as dense and blind to law as news host Rachael Maddow is, someone who wants to see tax returns that are under audit, but we seek fairness. Most on the right tend to think that the very top don’t pay enough taxes, even though the idea of the I.R.S.is”legal” in the broadest sense of the term only. Some towards the middle and the “soft left” are in favor of higher taxes than what most would call “fair,” but now it seems that the true believers think that 80% of a rich person’s wealth is fair to take!
Fox News’ Host Tucker Carlson had Caroline Heldman on his show. She is someone who the Gateway Pundit correctly called “an ultra-leftwing professor,” as she suggested that the 1% should only keep 20% of their wealth for themselves. While the richest of the rich certainly do need to pay more in taxes (if we mustkeep this awful tax code that we have now), to imply that taking 80% of someone’s legally obtained capital is almost as severe as saying that they should have nothing at all. Like them or not, many rich people have employed millions and helped many others become rich. Making sure that they pay their fair share and are not able to shelter it would be wonderful. Stealing 80% of their wealth is the same kind of greed that the left claims to detest.
Carlson told the guest that she should pay 70% of her pay to the government and even informed her of where she could send the payment to. She argues that she is not part of the 1% and says, “Well that’s the argument I’m making right now. That’s it’s not about working class Americans or people like me who are upper-income Americans, um it’s really about the wealthiest top 1% now–I pay about 30%.” Now what is striking here is she is not appalled in the least by the fact that 30% of her earnings goes to Big Brother. She is blind to the fact that if, to use a random analogy, 5% of her income is for healthcare. By the time the federal government is done, less than 1% will help anyone. Had taxes been a state issue, 3% can be guessed to have made it, and if a private group, 4% or higher.
Democrats and socialists somehow don’t understand that giving 5% of their income (staying with the random number) to a place like St. Jude directly – they treat children for free – would go a lot further dollar for dollar than giving it Uncle Sam who is going to pay federal wages to 50 people before it gets to the poor, sickly, or needy. Even those who seem to have truly big hearts, like Bernie Sanders, miss this very vital point. This is why healthcare quality died under Obamacare while prices went higher than Obama’s trade deficit.
When Carlson continues with “Why not pay 70%? I don’t understand. Like what’s holding you back?,” she replied with, “You know what’s holding me back? If if if I knew how to do that um I would have no issue doing that, but the tax code is totally convoluted.” This she achieved only after much stuttering and “him-hawing” around trying to find words. At this point, she was so ill-prepared for a simple question that she admitted that seeing only 30% of her income would be fine if the system was “convoluted.” To leftists, there is some magical way that, if done right, leads to having 70% of a college professor’s salary taken by the federal government. This is almost too bizarre to have actually been admitted. This is who is teaching the future leaders of America, isn’t it grand?
Tucker Carlson closes by saying, “No no no let me simplify it for you. Just write a check. Pay your taxes. Just figure it out. You pay 30%? Then just figure out the other 40% and write a check to the U.S. Treasury.” As expected, Twitter exploded with due mockery for the professor yet in the laughter, a few facts are going to be missed if we are careful. We have someone who is teaching college level classes who thinks that the federal government should be allowed to steal almost all of the money that we earn and use it as they see fit.
Carlson (pictured left) laughs at the insanity of liberal desires exposed.
Strangely enough, modern liberalism was built upon the Vietnam War era protests and yet somehow it is “OK” to the new lefties to trust the federal government with enough money to start and conduct any way imaginable. So many on the left act as if this vast amount was given to the government that no matter which party got in office, all of this money would just flow right back to the people. Healthcare, sex changes, and free food filet mignon for everyone. The trouble is that there is no instance in American (or any other) of this happening.
Communism works wonders for small groups. The left loves to talk about Jesus Christ and the thousands that followed him and his apostles. The love to talk about charities and churches and food pantries and hippie communes. All of that works if done well and if everyone wants to be in it. It DOES NOT work on a massive federal scale at all. Once that much money gets into a powerful government, things get very bad very quickly. Wars are started, money is misspent, and no one is bettered at all. The early church may have been as giving as California Governor Jerry Brown stated last month, but Rome was dreadful, and that is what big government in action.
Tax facts from 2014 – the most recent year available in total.
Now that we have Democrats admitting just what they would be in favor of, is will be interesting to see if a dumbed down nation such as America can do enough simple math to be able to calculate how bad they really are. Republican’s are greedy? Libertarian’s are cold? Perhaps, but at least the are not trying the vast MAJORITY of the worker’s incomes.
Susan Rice Net Worth Exposed: $50M As A CAREER Politician Making $172K At Her Max Salary
Posted by Anthony Cesario |
Apr 12, 2017
The Democratic party is full of corrupt liberals. Under former President Barack Obama, progressives managed to make incredible amounts of money. However, much of their income was earned unethically. Out of all of the Democrats, the former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, is among the most corrupt and dishonest.
Just recently, it was revealed that while some people have gotten rich by working in the private sector, she used her government position to make millions. Despite being a lifelong civil servant, she now has a net worth totaling nearly $50 million, which is extremely questionable.
In 2012, the Washington Post reported that she and her husband were allegedly worth over $20 million. Five years later, their wealth doubled. This happened despite the fact that she was only making $172,000 a year. It appears that much of her wealth may have been acquired unethically. Most of her money seems to have come from investments in Canadian oil companies.
According to May 2012 financial disclosure documents, she has invested between $300,000 and $600,000 in TransCanada Corporation. The company is best known for owning the Keystone XL pipeline and they’ve recently tried to have it completed in the U.S. To finish, they need to build 1,700 miles worth of pipe from Canada to Texas. Although the Obama administration stopped the deal, Trump and his team have reversed course and approved a permit to start construction. As a major investor, Rice stands to profit immensely.
On top of that, she’s also invested heavily in several major Canadian banks. Some of the banks she’s invested in are expected to help finance the upcoming construction, which will make her even more money. Further, it’s reported that she owns between $50,000 and $100,000 worth of shares in Suncor, an oil sand company, and $1.25 million in Transalta, Alberta’s electric power producer. Ironically, all of these investments are inconsistent with her party’s platform pushing “clean energy.”
Rice has been widely discredited in the political community due to her dishonesty. She’s best known for lying to the American people about what caused the attack on a U.S. embassy in Benghazi. After the attack occurred, she wrongly blamed it on an offensive video spread around the internet. In an interview on ABC, she called the attack a “reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.” Since her statement, it has since been proven that the attack was actually organized prior to the video’s release.
Susan Rice has been caught telling numerous lies.
She also defended Bo Bergdahl, an Army soldier who allegedly abandoned his post. According to her, he served with “honor and distinction” despite being found to have left deliberately without leave. To clarify, she explained, “I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this but what I was referring to was the fact that this was a young man who volunteered to serve his country in uniform at a time of war. That, in and of itself, is a very honorable thing.” She seems to believe that he was honorable for simply serving in the military, regardless of whether or not he deserted those who depended on him.
Last month, White House investigators found out that she was also responsible for revealing the identities of specific U.S. people related to President Trump’s campaign in raw intelligence reports. In response to the discovery, many were outraged. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) argued that her conduct was extremely inappropriate. He claimed, “when you’re in position like that and you have responsibility, constitutional responsibility, legal responsibility, you do not take things upon yourself to drive national security in a political direction.” He added, “this is exactly what was done, whether it was intentional, or somebody else had that idea.”
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) also spoke out against her actions, calling for her to testify under oath about what she did. He reasoned, “if it is allowed, we shouldn’t be allowing it, but I don’t think should just discount how big a deal it is that Susan Rice was looking at these.“ He added, “and she needs to be asked, ‘Did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she should testify under oath on this.”
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).
In the past, she’s also denied knowing about any surveillance of the Trump campaign. During an interview with PBS, she claimed that “nothing of the sort occurred.” However, CNN confirmed that she did, in fact, request the identities of certain individuals being watched. Her staff released a statement to try and clarify what happened: “The idea that Ambassador Rice improperly sought the identities of Americans is false. There is nothing unusual about making these requests when serving as a senior national security official, whether Democrat or Republican.” If she tried to “unmask” them, then she had to know that they were being surveilled. Despite this, she stands by her comment.
Another thing she lied about was the chemical weapons in Syria. After their military used chemical weapons in an attack against rebel forces, Obama refused to act, opting for a more diplomatic solution instead. According to her, they were “able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile” thanks to this alternative solution. But shortly after her statement, President Bashar Al Assad began using chemical weapons again, proving she was either wrong or she lied once again. Given her track record, it’s likely that she was being dishonest.
In 2014, former Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to explain what she meant to try and make her look better. He claimed that they “got 100 percent of the declared chemical weapons out of Syria,” suggesting that the weapons currently being used were either manufactured afterward or not declared.

Based on what she’s said about Benghazi, Bo Bergdahl, government surveillance, unmasking, and chemical weapons, it’s clear that Rice cannot be trusted. She needs to be held accountable for what she’s said. Trump should work with Congress to make sure that people who make deliberate lies, such as the ones she’s made, are appropriately disciplined.
The left’s silence regarding Rice’s wealth and dishonesty is hypocritical. When their own party is getting rich, in a way that doesn’t support our economy, they remain silent. But when Trump gets rich in a way that supports the United States economy and creates jobs, the left cries out in anger. And if he accidentally misspeaks, the media attacks him, but when she deliberately lies, progressives makes excuses.
Rasmea Odeh’s Exit, Stage Left
by Ruthie Blum
Convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh received a standing ovation this weekend in Chicago from an enthusiastic crowd at the national conference of the organization Jewish Voice for Peace.
Luckily for Odeh — who took part in the bombing of a Jerusalem supermarket in 1969, which killed Hebrew University students Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe — the Jewish state she and her radical leftist buddies in the US Jewish community would see eradicated let her out of jail as part of a prisoner exchange. Still, she has expressed no gratitude to the liberal society that set her free in 1980, or to the one that has enabled her since then to roam around freely, spewing her vitriol and inciting violence. On the contrary, the proud member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, who feels no remorse for the innocent boys she killed, also defied the country that took her in as in immigrant – concealing her terrorist past in order to enter the United States.
Not only that. Last month, Odeh’s three-year battle with the US government, which was sparked by her being convicted of immigration fraud, came to a happy end with a plea bargain according to which she would be stripped of her American citizenship and deported, but serve no jail time.
The Rasmea Defense Committee, a vocal group of avid supporters, had the nerve to respond to this piece of luck and ill-deserved generosity by saying that her decision to accept the deal was difficult, but it was the best she could hope for under the “current racist political climate” of President Donald Trump, in which her “prospects for a fair trial are slimmer than ever.”
It is bad enough that Odeh only spent 10 years in an Israeli prison. Worse still that she is getting off the hook for her subsequent crime. But the fact that she has been elevated to some kind of sainthood, lauded by feminist, black and other self-described human rights activists is as shocking as it is shameful.
To add insult to injury, Jewish Voice for Peace pressured the management of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, the venue rented for the hate-filled conference, not to allow a pro-Israel group to rent a separate room in which to hold a memorial service for Odeh’s victims. This is a classic case of what renowned law professor Alan Dershowitz calls “free speech for me and not for thee.”
Yes, as long as Jewish Voice for Peace and its non-Jewish counterparts — such as Students for Justice in Palestine and Black Lives Matter, which use it as a cover for their antisemitism – have the microphone, anything goes. Even glorifying cold-blooded murder. But when an organization like StandWithUs wants to present an opposing viewpoint, any underhanded tactics to prevent it from doing so are kosher.
Ultimately, StandWithUs prevailed and conducted a vigil for Kanner and Joffe during the conference, albeit in a different building of the Hyatt complex. But it was a quiet ceremony, unlike that of Jewish Voice for Peace, which cheered Odeh when she said, “We need you to continue resisting Trump’s agenda and to continue challenging the Zionists and to continue providing your solidarity and support to the Palestinian and Arab national movement.”
Odeh, who was 21 when she played a key role in the terrorist attack, failed to mention that if not for Israeli policy, she would have spent the rest of her life behind bars. Instead, she has been a liberated woman since the age of 32. The now 69-year-old also left out the fact that the U.S. justice system – yes, in Trump’s America – can take credit for her ability to trade jail for Jordan, where she will undoubtedly be hailed as a heroine.
Good riddance, Rasmea; too bad you can’t take your sycophants with you. But, as you surely know, Jordanian law forbids Jews from becoming citizens.

Shake-Up: Reince Priebus Ally Katie Walsh Out at White House
Cliff Owen/AP by MATTHEW BOYLE
30 Mar 2017Washington, D.C.
Deputy White House chief of staff Katie Walsh is no longer going to be working in President Donald Trump’s White House, Politico reports.
Politico reported on Thursday afternoon:
President Donald Trump is undergoing his first staff shake-up less than three months into his term, sending deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh to bolster the flagging outside groups that were meant to support his agenda, according to a Republican source close to the White House. The move caps a rough stretch for Trump, who has seen his young administration dogged by controversy, his travel ban executive order blocked twice in court, and a health care bill he supported go down in flames.
Walsh, Politico reports and independent sources confirm to Breitbart News, will now be serving as “an adviser both to a pro-Trump nonprofit and the RNC.”
Politico notes that Walsh is a “close ally of chief of staff Reince Priebus,” having served as his chief of staff at the Republican National Committee.
Walsh previously told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview ahead of President Trump’s exclusive interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office that she was in charge of the president’s schedule, and coordinating the activities of Trump’s unusual circuit of senior aides like Priebus, chief strategist and former Breitbart News executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon, and Trump son-in-law and senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner.
Walsh said in the exclusive interview with Breitbart News last month:
As you know, we’ve got a lot of senior folks in the White House who have a great ability to help push the president’s agenda and message and that’s Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, KellyAnne Conway, and others, but there is a logistical piece of that that has to get implemented and so I try and help with that. So I try and do what I can to make sure the right hand is talking to the left hand and everyone knows what everyone is doing, and there is a cohesive operation or effort to make sure, whatever we’re doing, that nothing happens in a silo if you will. So even if Reince is with the president working on something, and Jared is working on an issue related to trade, and Steve is working on an issue related to immigration or something, we try and make sure everyone is still on the same page and working together and moving together as fast as we can.
But rumors surfaced online that Walsh was leaking information about the White House.
“Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press,” Got News editor Charles Johnson quoted a “source close to the president” as saying in February. “The only question is whether or not she’s doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or if she’s doing it to advance herself in DC media circles.”
In a meeting with reporters, however, Priebus, Kushner, and Bannon all defended Walsh.
But Walsh’s quick departure in the first 100 days does not bode well for those responsible for bringing her in. Priebus, many reports in recent days and weeks have shown, is on the hot seat and may find himself in a similar fate to Walsh. Many Trump allies both inside and outside the White House believe that Priebus is not serving the president’s best interests, partially because of his loyalty to House Speaker Paul Ryan and partially because of his inability to deliver big ticket agenda items in the Trump White House and throughout Washington—as well as getting the Trump administration off the ground with basic government appointments filled.
One ex-Trump aide speculated to Breitbart News that Priebus is next.
“Reince Priebus is now a dead man walking,” the aide said. “The firing of Katie Walsh was a sign of desperation.”
However, a White House official told Time Magazine’s Zeke Miller that Priebus is fine.
Sources tell Breitbart News there may be more announcements coming soon as it relates to other senior staff inside the White House. White House press secretary Sean Spicer has not responded to a request for comment on the news that Walsh is being removed from the White House.
Homeowner's association tells Florida woman to take down Blue Lives Matter flag

UPDATED:MAR 22 2017 09:36AM EDT
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Florida woman is being told to take down her Blue Lives Matter flag that's been flying for several years now by her homeowners association.
Jeff Gaddie told Action News Jacksonville that his daughter has been flying the flag to honor him and many other family members who are law enforcement.
"She called to ask why," Gaddie said. "They told her they had received a complaint that it was considered racist, offensive and anti-black lives matter,” he said.
The association asked the woman, who did not want to be identified for fear of backlash, to submit a request for permission to fly the flag, which has since been denied.
Action News Jacksonville reached out to the First Coast Association Management, which said only American and military-themed flags are allowed to fly in the neighborhood, even though there are other types of flags flying.
Gaddie says the flag is only a show of support and the family is planning to appeal the decision at the next homeowner's association meeting.
Gross Parental Rights Violations Exposed by Liberty Counsel in Northern Idaho
Mar 17, 2017
Liberty Counsel caught a school administrator plotting with local activists to target and recruit students to join a Gay-Straight Alliance - while intentionally hiding this information from their parents - at the Forrest M. Bird Charter School in Idaho. In a recorded meeting, Principal Mary Jensen admitted the secrecy under which school staff had operated and the agenda of the adults participating.
You can see her shocking comments in our press release or listen to them for yourself.
Liberty Counsel originally contacted the school asking for assurances that it would respect parental rights. The school falsely claimed no violations had taken place. It is outrageous that this school would intentionally undermine parental rights in this manner. Parents have the fundamental right to know about and direct the activities and associations of their minor children.
BREAKING: Top Democrat Caught Leaking Classified Intelligence, Could Face Prison Time
The corruption of Democrats remains a sticking point in the opening months of Trump’s presidency, even if the mainstream media refuses to report on it.
Government watchdog Judicial Watch have filed an official complaint, asking for the Chair and co-Chair of the House Intelligence Committee to investigate members Adam Schiff and Jackie Speier. These are two of California’s most notorious Democrats. (via Judicial Watch)
The complaint argues that the Democrat members of the House Intelligence Committee have “disclosed classified information to the public in violation of House ethics rules.” This is just another example of the corruption running rampant through our great capital.
The knowing disclosure of classified information carries a maximum penalty of ten years behind bars. That is a light penalty for this awful corruption. Like I have said many times, we need to hold politicians to a higher standard.
Adam Schiff and Jackie Speier were caught with their feet in their mouths after they attempted the political assassination of Chairman of the committee, Devin Nunes.
Nunes was attacked by his Democrat peers and liberal activists after holding a press conference confirming that President Trump was monitored by members of the Obama administration during the campaign. The mainstream media hates to tell the truth about Mr. Nunes.
The allegations were confirmed after Nunes made the statement, and after it was proven that former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, unethically released the names of members of the Trump transition team.
Nunes decided to brief the president with what he considered important information. He was attacked by Democrats for undermining the narrative that Trump was colluding with Russia.
Since Nunes had the gall to work with the President, Democrats complained that he was too close to Trump to investigate possible collusion with Russia. They also alleged that, by holding the press conference, Nunes violated ethics rules of disclosing classified information.
Noting the obvious contradiction, Judicial Watch provided proof that Schiff and Speier were both guilty of disclosing classified information. In fact, their disclosures were even more damaging than the so-called Nunes “controversy,” as they directly confirmed the leaked information was accurate — something even James Comey has refused to do.
Essentially, in attempting to oust Nunes for turning against the Democrat’s narrative, Democrats were caught red-handed committing an even more egregious violation than the accusations directed towards Nunes.
Of course, this reality will be completely lost on the press, who have dedicated themselves to a full-fledged attack on Donald Trump, and the millions of Trump supporters across the country.
US launches missiles into Syria in response to chemical weapons attack
By Jennifer Griffin, Lucas Tomlinson
Published April 06, 2017
Will there be war in Syria?
DEVELOPING – The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield early Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians, the first direct assault on the Damascus government since the beginning of that country's bloody civil war in 2011.
The Tomahawk missile strikes destroyed portions of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s military infrastructure. A U.S. official told Fox News has learned that the primary target was an airbase at Shayrat, located outside Homs.
At least 50 U.S. Tomahawk missiles, fired from warships in the Mediterranean Sea, targeted an air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that American officials believe Syrian government aircraft launched with a nerve agent, possibly sarin.
It is believed that the base was used as a staging point for Tuesday's chemical weapons attack on rebel-held territory, which killed as many as 72 civilians, including women and children.
US defense officials tell Fox that two warships based in the eastern Mediterranean, the USS Porter and the USS Ross, have been training for the past two days to execute this mission.
“Our forward deployed ships give us the capability to quickly respond to threats," said a Navy official. "These strikes in Syria are a perfect example - this is why we're there."
President Donald Trump did not announce the attacks in advance, though he and other national security officials ratcheted up their warnings to the Syrian government throughout the day Thursday.
"I think what happened in Syria is one of the truly egregious crimes and shouldn't have happened and it shouldn't be allowed to happen," Trump told reporters traveling on Air Force One to Florida, where he was holding a two-day summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The strike came as Trump was hosting Xi in meetings focused in part on another pressing U.S. security dilemma: North Korea's nuclear program. Trump's actions in Syria could signal to China that the new president isn't afraid of unilateral military steps. even if key nations like China are standing in the way.

WHO ASKED SUSAN RICE TO UNMASK THOSE NAMES?
Obama’s national security advisor is a liar -- and possibly a felon. April 4, 2017
Former President Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice asked for the names of Trump transition officials to be unmasked and made public in raw intelligence files, according to media reports, a move apparently carried out to harm the incoming Trump administration.
As recently as March 22, Rice denied knowing anything about the intelligence reports. In an appearance on “PBS Newshour,” she said pretty definitely, “I know nothing about this.” The new news reports paint Rice as a liar.
The evidence we know about in the Trump-Russia saga so far seems to be pointing at Obama.
Adam Housley of Fox News reports:
The unmasked names, of people associated with Donald Trump, were then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan – essentially, the officials at the top, including former Rice deputy Ben Rhodes.
The names were part of incidental electronic surveillance of candidate and President-elect Trump and people close to him, including family members, for up to a year before he took office.
The spreading of the unmasked names was carried out for “political purposes that have nothing to do with national security” or foreign intelligence, Housley said. "It had everything to do with hurting and embarrassing Trump and his team," he said, citing his sources.
What is incidental collection, by the way?
Incidental collection “happens when an individual is in contact with the target of surveillance,” or is communicating “about” the target, according to Robyn Greene. “So if Bob were being targeted for surveillance and Alice called or emailed Bob, Alice’s communications with him would be collected incidentally.”
In this example, “if Bob is targeted for surveillance and Alice contacts him during that surveillance, resulting in the incidental collection of her communications with him, her name should be redacted or ‘masked’ unless leaving it unredacted provides foreign intelligence value.” Masking is done to protect U.S. persons (i.e. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, etc.) who get inadvertently caught up in the electronic dragnet from being falsely accused of crimes or otherwise improper behavior.
If a National Security Agency analyst “believes Alice’s communications may contain evidence of any crime, the NSA can share those communications with law enforcement or other relevant agencies … even if the crimes are completely unrelated to the purpose for surveilling Bob’s communications, or to foreign intelligence or national security investigations.”
According to former Obama State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, “if the intelligence community professionals decide that there’s some value, national security, foreign policy or otherwise in unmasking someone, they will grant those requests,”
Assuming these news reports about data that supposedly was incidentally collected are accurate, they raise a multitude of new questions about the ongoing scandal concerning alleged collaboration between the Trump team and Russia.
We still don’t know who asked then-National Security Advisor Susan Rice to unmask those names – or if she acted on her own initiative. But the most likely culprit has to be President Obama himself, along with those in his inner circle such as his Islamist CIA director John Brennan and his slimy national-security aide Ben Rhodes.
But whoever did the deed, it appears someone used America’s taxpayer-funded national security apparatus to engage in likely unlawful espionage against an opposition presidential campaign, an incoming administration, and that administration’s transition team. It’s the stuff of banana republics, which makes sense, because Obama spent eight long, lawless years trying to turn the United States into precisely that.
Those persons may have participated in a virtual fishing expedition to dig up dirt on Team Trump and cripple his administration with scandals like the still-unproven collusion between Trump’s people and Russia and the seemingly wild claim that Russia somehow “hacked” the November election.
Susan Rice has no shortage of chutzpah.
In a Washington Post op-ed two weeks ago, she scolded President Trump over supposedly making false statements:
The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military might, the strength of our economy and the power of our ideals. It is also grounded in the perception that the United States is steady, rational and fact-based. To lead effectively, the United States must maintain respect and trust. So, when a White House deliberately dissembles and serially contorts the facts, its actions pose a serious risk to America’s global leadership, among friends and adversaries alike.
In her defense, Rice knows a lot about dissembling and contorting facts, things that are her stock-in-trade. Her statements are difficult to take seriously because she is a prolific liar.
Rice’s serial dishonesty and astonishingly bad judgment calls are well-documented.
Rice embraced the 2014 deal wherein President Obama freed five senior Taliban commanders and high-value terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, in exchange for U.S. Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl who deserted in 2009 and collaborated with the Taliban for the next five years. Eight U.S. soldiers were killed in the effort to find and recover Bergdahl who emailed his father just before deserting, claiming he was “ashamed” to be American. In June 2014 Rice went on ABC TV to justify the prisoner swap, falsely stating that Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.” The next year the Army charged Bergdahl with desertion.
Rice mischaracterized the deadly terrorist assault on the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, as a “spontaneous reaction” to “a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world.” Five days later she went on five separate Sunday TV news programs and falsely claimed the Benghazi attack was a “spontaneous reaction” to “a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world.”
Rice has long believed the leftist myth that poverty creates Muslim terrorists. She inspired the Obama administration’s “de-emphasizing [of] military action against terrorists, while looking for ways to address the ‘root causes’ of the violence.” She co-wrote a 2005 academic article that claimed terrorism was “a threat borne of both oppression and deprivation." Of course, Rice endorsed President Obama’s illegal war in Libya which was justified on bogus humanitarian concerns.
After deadly Muslim terrorist-orchestrated bombings in 1998, President Clinton wheeled Rice out to lie to television viewers about inadequate security provided at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Prudence Bushnell had begged then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright for extra security to guard against terrorist threats, including her own possible assassination. After the bombings Rice showed up on PBS to speak for the Clinton administration. She claimed the administration had "maintain[ed] a high degree of security at all of our embassies at all times" and that there was "no telephone warning or call of any sort like that, that might have alerted either embassy just prior to the blast."
In 1996 Rice helped to persuade President Clinton to reject Sudan’s offer to deliver Osama bin Laden to the U.S.
During the 1994 Rwandan genocide that claimed the lives of 800,000 people in a 100-day period, Rice worked in Bill Clinton’s White House. She “was a key player in the Clinton administration's decision not to intervene in a peacekeeping role, so as to avoid becoming embroiled in a politically risky endeavor where no strategic U.S. interests were in play.” The Clinton people lied afterward, claiming they didn’t know the extent of the carnage in Rwanda. Rice played a role in the cover-up, convincing the administration to strike terms such as “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” from CIA and State Department memos related to Rwanda. “If we use the word 'genocide' and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November [congressional] election?" Rice said, according to Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Power.
Like many inept, intellectually-deficient left-wingers, Rice was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship. She earned a doctoral degree from Oxford University in 1990. In her dissertation she hailed the genocidal Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe as a “pragmatic, intelligent, sensible, gentle, balanced man” in possession of much “patience and restraint.”
Among other famous Rhodes Scholars, who tend to be highly influential in their professional lives, are MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), feminist Naomi Wolf, Wesley Clark, former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.), and New York Times columnist Nick Kristof.
Which may help to explain why America is in such rough shape today.
BREAKING: Muslims Have Infiltrated American Schools, Documents Found & Released
Islam’s slow takeover of American life must be stopped at all costs. Islam is a foreign and violent religion that will try any method to convert true blue Americanism to their barbaric ways.
According to recently released documents, a program entitled “Access Islam” is being taught in grades 5 through 12 all across the country. “Access Islam” is nothing but religious propaganda that is currently facing a lawsuit claiming that it violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, via Dennis Michael Lynch.
This case was filed by the Christian Access Network and their legal representatives at the law firm of Carroll, Ucker and Hemmer, LLC.
The case comes hot on the heels of another lawsuit in Maryland, wherein a concerned parent sued the school district for teaching a very skewed version of Islamic history and theology, via The Angry Patriot.
Although Democrats, who are cheerleaders for mass Muslim immigration, scoff at the idea of Islamic indoctrination in our schools, there have been cases across the world of it actually happening.
In the U.K., parents in Birmingham demanded that the city’s public school system stop teaching jihad and inviting hardline Islamist scholars to speak to their students.
In France, Germany, and Sweden, increasing levels of Islamic immigrants have adversely affected their schools, with Islamic propaganda being forcefully taught to native-born Christians.
Much closer to home, parents in New Jersey were outraged to learn their children were being taught to recite the Shahada, or the Muslim prayer of conversion, by their schoolteachers.
The seventh graders were also taught to say “May God help us all find the true faith, Islam,” via WND. Central to the Islamic faith is the idea of taqiya, or lying in order to conceal one’s true intentions. Islamist teachers and their idiotic allies on the left are helping extremists to corrupt the minds of our children in the name of “tolerance” and “multiculturalism.”
The lie of “peaceful Islam” should be clear to anyone with eyes. Islamic terrorist groups are larger, better funded, and more active than most non-Islamic terror groups. Furthermore, in the West, wherever large pockets of Islam exist, violence, suppression, and oppression exist.
Read Peter McLoughlin’s Easy Meat and see how Islamic rapists targeted white British girls with prostitution. This is what they really think of us.
Worse still, the “grooming gangs” exploited British fears of racism to keep their operations going for decades.
Cutting off the head of Islamic indoctrination has to start now — we can’t let it into our schools.

Left-Wing Darling And Convicted Terrorist Takes Plea Deal, Agrees To Deportation
6:44 PM 03/23/2017
A convicted terrorist and darling of left-wing activists has accepted a plea deal in which she will be stripped of her citizenship and be deported.
Rasmea Odeh, 69, will avoid jail time as part of the deal, the Rasmea Defense Committee announced on Thursday.
“Under this current, racist political climate, and facing 18 months or more of imprisonment, as well as the possibility of indefinite detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Rasmea has made the difficult decision to accept a plea agreement,” reads a statement from Rasmea Defense Committee.
The group called the deal a “victory” for Odeh, who was born in Palestine but will be deported to Jordan.
“She will plead guilty to Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization, lose her U.S. citizenship, and be forced to leave the country, but will exit the U.S. without having to serve any more time in prison or ICE detention, a victory, considering that the government had earlier fought for a sentence of 5-7 years.”
Odeh’s case has been in limbo since 2014, when a federal judge in Detroit sentenced her to 18 months in prison for immigration fraud for lying on her visa and citizenship forms about her past terrorism convictions and her ties to a terrorist group.
An activist with the Arab American Action Network, Odeh was alleged to be a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terror group. She was convicted in Israel in 1970 of taking part in two bombings the year before, one at a supermarket in Jerusalem and another at the British consulate. Two Israeli students were killed in the supermarket bombing. Nine were injured in the two blasts.
Odeh was freed from prison in 1980 as part of a prisoner exchange. She emigrated to the U.S. in the 1990s and gained citizenship in 2004. She has denied taking part in the terrorist acts and has claimed that she was tortured and sexually assaulted by Israeli police to elicit her confession.
Odeh’s case has become a rallying cry for anti-Israel, left-wing and feminist activists. She recently helped organize the “Day Without A Woman” protests that took place on March 8.
Fmr Atty General Mukasey: There was surveillance at the behest of Obama Dept of Justice
Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump
This is the open scandal that Congress should investigate.
John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.
A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump. He bastardized standards so that these left-wing activists could burrow in and take career positions. Under the patina of that phony professionalism, they could then present their politicized judgments as “non-partisan.”
The Guardian story is written in a style designed to flatter its sources (they are cast as high-minded whistleblowers), but the upshot of it is devastating for them, nonetheless, and explains why all the criminal leaks against Trump first originated in the British press. According to the story, Brennan got his anti-Trump tips primarily from British spies but also Estonian spies and others. The story confirms that the seed of the espionage into Trump was planted by Estonia. The BBC’s Paul Wood reported last year that the intelligence agency of an unnamed Baltic State had tipped Brennan off in April 2016 to a conversation purporting to show that the Kremlin was funneling cash into the Trump campaign.
Any other CIA director would have disregarded such a flaky tip, recognizing that Estonia was eager to see Trump lose (its officials had bought into Hillary’s propaganda that Trump was going to pull out of NATO and leave Baltic countries exposed to Putin). But Brennan opportunistically seized on it, as he later that summer seized on the half-baked intelligence of British spy agencies (also full of officials who wanted to see Trump lose).
The Guardian says that British spy head Robert Hannigan “passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan.” To ensure that these flaky tips leaked out, Brennan disseminated them on Capitol Hill. In August and September of 2016, he gave briefings to the “Gang of Eight” about them, which then turned up on the front page of the New York Times.
All of this took place at the very moment Brennan was auditioning for Hillary. He desperately wanted to keep his job and despised Trump for his alleged “Muslim ban,” a matter near and dear to Brennan’s heart. Not only was he an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, but Brennan’s Islamophilia dated to his days in college, when he spent a year in Cairo learning Arabic and taking courses in Middle Eastern studies. He later got a graduate degree with an emphasis in Middle Eastern studies. In 1996, his ties to the Islamic world tightened after he became the CIA’s station chief in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He once recalled that “during a 25-year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East — as a political officer with the State Department and as a CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques of Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that privilege — that pilgrimage.”
Out of this Islamophilia came a special dislike of Michael Flynn, who had planned to rip up the Obama-era “reset” with Muslim countries. Furious with Flynn for his apostasy from political correctness, Brennan and other Obama aides couldn’t resist the temptation to take him out after rifling through transcripts of his calls with the Russian ambassador. They caught him in a lie to Mike Pence and made sure the press knew about it.
Were the media not so completely in the tank for Obama and Hillary, all of this political mischief would make for a compelling 2016 version of All the President’s Men. Instead, the public gets a steady stream of Orwellian propaganda about the sudden propriety of political espionage. The headline writers at Pravda couldn’t improve on this week’s official lie, tweeted out by the Maggie Habermans: “Susan Rice Did Nothing Wrong, Say Both Dem and Republican House Aides.”
Liberals pompously quote the saying — “the bigger the lie, the more it will be believed” — even as their media enshrine it. Historians will look back on 2016 and marvel at the audacity of its big lie: whispers of an imaginary Trump-Russia collusion that wafted up from the fever swamps of a real collusion between John Brennan and foreign powers seeking Trump’s defeat.
As Gorsuch Assumes Power North Carolina Introduces Shocking Bill On Marriage
Posted by Allison Hillman |
Apr 13, 2017
North Carolina is challenging the Supreme Court on gay marriage.
Most of us believed that the gay marriage issue was in the past. There were advocates and opponents, rallies and marches, threats and crying, and then it was settled. Some states led the charge to change laws and others quietly held their ground. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that North Carolina has issued a challenge to the Supreme Court now, seemingly out of nowhere.
The North Carolina General Assembly is arguing that Obergefell v. Hodges, the decision by the Supreme Court giving gay couples the right to marry, is “null and void.” The Assembly met Tuesday to introduce a bill based on the 10th Amendment. They claim that the Supreme Court overstepped its authority; not only under the Constitution but under the “decree of Almighty God.” Their legislation returns the power over marriage to the state and the members promised that meant only recognizing marriages between one man and one woman.
This is interesting timing for a new bill as Neil Gorsuch prepares to take the Supreme Court bench. If legislation H.B. 780 gets through the state government and courts, a newly arranged Supreme Court could have to deal with the issue again.
Depending on who you ask, you will get a different answer on whether Gorsuch is for or against gay marriage. Liberals are convinced that he will support cases that ban sodomy, thus outlawing homosexuality. Others aren’t convinced, saying he has not been that easy to pin down. He has often been compared to Justice Scalia, who wrote a scathing dissent when the Supreme Court ruled on Obergefell v. Hodges. That does not necessarily mean Gorsuch would rule the same as Scalia but that is what the left has repeatedly expressed.
Views on gay marriage have become more favorable over the years.
He has come down on the side of religion in several rulings, most notably Hobby Lobby Stores v. Sebelius. In that case he and the majority of the 10th Circuit ruled in favor of the company. He spoke about the need to accept the requirements of the store owner’s faith. He also mentioned that the “the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act substantially burdened their religious exercise…” This case went on to be held up by the Supreme Court of the time.
The new bill being proposed in North Carolina hearkens back to a law from 2012, located in Section 6 of Article XIV of the state constitution. The law “defines marriage as being between one man and one woman.” In addition, North Carolina would not recognize gay marriages performed in other states.
The bill, entitled the Uphold Historical Marriage Act, contends that “Whereas, the enumerated powers of the federal government, as outlined in the United States Constitution, do not include the authority or power to establish laws concerning marriage; and Whereas, it is, therefore, clear that laws concerning marriage are for each state to establish and maintain severally and independently…”
H.B. 780 is sponsored by three Republican House members, Larry Pittman (R-Cabarrus), Michael Speciale (R-Beaufort), and Carl Ford (R-Rown), and calls upon the state to recognize the word of God over the Supreme Court. “…also exceeds the authority of the Court relative to the decree of Almighty God that “a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24, ESV) and abrogates the clear meaning and understanding of marriage in all societies throughout prior history…”
Gay marriage views based on religion.
Religion is as much of a hot button issue these days as it gets. Many feel that Christians and their beliefs are under attack, despite what liberals say. At the same time, the election of President Trump and other Republicans signal a desire to return to core values and less governmental power. That alone may be a good sign for North Carolina.
Democrats have spoken out in dissent of the new legislation. Governor Roy Cooper sent out a Tweet saying, “This bill is wrong. We need more LGBT protections, not fewer.” Senior legislative counsel for the Human Rights Campaign Cathryn Oakley issued a statement regarding the bill.
“This is far beyond the purview of the North Carolina General Assembly. It shows how ridiculous this adventure is. It shows where these legislator’s hearts and minds are when it comes to LGBTQ equality. It shows they’re not shy about putting their discriminatory intentions out there in public. They are not serious in creating policy. They are interested in making political statements about discrimination. This will not pass constitutional muster. It’s flagrantly unconstitutional.”
Views on gay marriage by political party.
North Carolina is already struggling with some of its more recent decisions. Their controversial HB 2 deemed trans people could not use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. Instead, they must follow the gender listed on their birth certificate.
Facing vicious backlash from many, including the NCAA, the state backpedaled and tabled the issue until the country as a whole picks a side in the debate. This was a concession to some but not enough for much of the LGBTQ community.
This new bill is already facing the same criticism which will just increase as it becomes more public. It is possible that H.B. 780 is largely symbolic, a response to the forced withdrawal over the bathroom issue.
Whatever their reasons, North Carolina has a bumpy road ahead legally. Even if it passes their House and Senate, the governor will more than likely veto it. However, the state may find more support this time around from a federal government that is a far cry from the past eight years.
Evelyn Farkas Says Obama Was Spying on Trump - MSNBC 3/27 3/28
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Obama Administration admits that Trump was spied on and that they tried to hide both the source and how the information was being disseminated to "the hill."
FBI Director Comey Lied To House Intelligence Committee About Surveillance Of Trump
Andrew Napolitano 'stands by' claim that got him suspended from Fox
By now, I'm sure you have seen the vile smears and bogus charges of Russian collusion being leveled against myself and President Donald Trump.
Neither the President or I have anything to fear from a full and fair investigation of these fantasyland delusions from radical Democrats and establishment forces.
It was reported earlier this month by the New York Times, that I received a letter from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. This letter, dated February 17th, reached me on Saint Patrick's Day, thirty days later on March 17th.
You are the first to hear my formal response. I am anxious and willing to rebut allegations that I had any improper or nefarious contact with agents of the Russian State, basing my arguments on facts... not misleading and salacious headlines like the #FakeNews.
Any claims of Russian influence or collusion in the Trump Campaign or by the Intelligence Community are backed up by exactly ZERO EVIDENCE.
If the House Committee was not obsessed with the headline of issuing me a subpoena, they would certainly invite me to testify immediately.
Inferences by the mainstream media that my fully disclosed and innocuous exchange with Twitter user Guccifer 2.0, who may or may not be a Russian Asset, constitutes "collusion"... is easily debunked by the content and timeline of events.
My only communication with Guccifer 2.0, happened six-weeks after the Wikileaks release of the DNC documents that revealed how Hillary Clinton cheated to beat Bernie Sanders.
"Collusion" with someone has to be BEFORE the event, not AFTER. I myself reported his role in the DNC hacking in an article for Breitbart News on August 5th, but heard no suggestions that he was a potential Russian asset until recently... thus my banal exchange with him is unwitting, even IF he was/is a Russian Agent.
*** Find out the whole truth about the 2016 election ***
They accuse me of colluding with Guccifer 2.0 to hack and release the DNC documents, when my only communication with him, via Twitter is SIX WEEKS after Julian Assange's WikiLeaks published the documents online.
When the D.C. insiders claim we had 17 points of contact, they are including public tweets to make the number sound large.
This bogus talking point was cooked up to get "Trump associates communicated with Russian Hacker" hyperbole littered within #FakeNews media outlets across the globe.
On January 20th, the NYT reported on page A-1, that WIRETAPPED DATA USED IN INQUIRY OF TRUMP AIDES. I am one of three Trump associates named in the story.
Was I wire-tapped? On what evidence? Based on a Clinton campaign press release? What judge ordered the tap? More importantly, who leaked that I was under surveillance?
If I was under surveillance as part of a FISA warrant, leaking that information would be a felony. Establishment elements within the intelligence agencies pushing this FALSE Russian narrative through a series of highly illegal leaks are harming my ability to make a living.
Their demented scheme is soiling my reputation. Help me fight back by clicking here and joining the #StoneColdTruth rapid response team.
They are in no possession of evidence that I colluded with the Russian state. I welcome the opportunity to be sworn in and testify before any House or Senate hearing. Can they handle the #StoneColdTruth?
I hope these committees will be equally as vigorous in questioning former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Ray McGovern must also appear.
Thomas Drake, William Binny and Craig Murray must tell us what they know about the surveillance of Donald Trump.
Denials that candidate Trump was under surveillance by the intelligence community, must be seen in the same light as establishment forces lying about torture at Abu Dhabi, their lies about why our embassy in Benghazi was attacked, lies about rendition, lies about the scope of meta-data collection, myths about WMDs, and the control of Saddam Hussein.
The congressman and Senators on the Intelligence Committees are either gullible or blackmail-able. Of course they buy these lies.
Obama administration officials deny asking British Intelligence to bug Trump and thus provide cover to the spooks at Langley.
While some establishment political figures in Britain are feigning outrage, very well placed members of the Tory Party assure me Judge Andrew Napolotiano's Fox News report is correct in stating that British Intelligence most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump's calls.
GHGQ, known as the Government Communications Headquarters, was given full access by the NSA, so that they, as a foreign intelligence agency could join the NSA in operating outside of constitutional norms to spy on Americans, including Trump.
Denials of this cannot be taken at face value. Outrage by the Brits is their role in the conspiracy as the "cut-out." President Trump should not back off his claims. It took the Watergate cover up over a year to crumble. Obama's surveillance of Trump is yet to be proven.
The double standard is stunning. We are told the hijacking of the elections by Russians is a certainty without a shred of proof, yet we reject the idea Trump was spied on because there is no proof.
All of this and more is laid out in my book, The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated A Revolution.
Now, more than ever, I need your help. Help me educate the public aggressively, by sharing these key points as we PUNCH BACK.
*Banal Guccifer 2.0 + Roger Stone Russia collusion is not mathematically or humanely possible. It happened after the leaks and therefore cannot constitute "collusion."
*Saying Roger Stone colluded with a Russian Hacker is #FakeNews.
*Russian Hacking Charge wont stand up. Roger Stone must be allowed to testify.
Sharing these key points and dispelling the rumors about Russian Collusion is an important step in defending our vision and need to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.
I remain ready to testify before the House or Senate, if they man up and call me to Washington.
