Establishment Media Blackout: Journalist Targeted for Being White Tragically Dies BY BENJAMIN ARIE OCTOBER 21, 2018 AT 8:02AM A shocking racial hate crime has killed a man who lived his life trying to help others, but the details in the case mean there will be no riots, and you probably won’t hear his name mentioned on the national news. A 55-year-old journalist and volunteer first responder was attacked from behind before being dragged into a parking lot in New Jersey. Then, his assailant stole the man’s car and used it to drive over the victim’s head, leaving him gravely injured. The assault occurred in May, but the victim remained on life support until his death on Thursday. To make the horrific attack even worse, authorities believe the journalist was targeted and ultimately killed because of his skin color.
Why isn’t this the top story on every cable news channel? Because the victim is Jerry Wolkowitz, and he was apparently attacked by a black man based on racial hatred. “Jerry Wolkowitz, a longtime EMT and journalist, has died nearly six months after a brutal, allegedly racially motivated beating,” reported the Asbury Park Press, a news outlet that also published much of the freelance reporter’s photographs over the years.
“Wolkowitz, described as an ‘innocent soul’ by younger medics he took under his wing, was walking near his Harding Road apartment on the morning of May 1 when authorities believe 26-year-old Jamil S. Hubbard of Sayreville beat him and dragged him into a parking lot,” the newspaper continued. After police tracked down and arrested Hubbard, a repeat criminal who openly admitted to running over the older man because of race.
“(Hubbard) explained that he chose him because he was a white man,” revealed prosecutor Keri-Leigh Schaefer during a court hearing. “The allegations are of a horrific crime,” Judge James J. McGann said during the hearing. “The defendant, according to police, approached a total stranger and started beating him.”
The victim’s family reached out to the community for help, and shared its love for the victim on a GoFundMe page set up to soften the burden of when Wolkowitz was still on life support. “Jerry is a reporter, a writer, a first aid volunteer, a dedicated worker, a wonderful friend, and a devoted family man with a loving fiance,” the page explained. “He is kind-hearted and highly devoted to his family and friends. He … has a great sense of humor, and is always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need,” the family’s heartfelt message continued.
It’s almost certain that if the roles were reversed in this horrendous racially-motivated crime, there would be protests and national news coverage. But not for Jerry Wolkowitz. As of Saturday evening, a Google search of the victim’s name on CNN.com showed literally zero results.
The story is nowhere on NBC or MSNBC, either. Of the “big three” cable news channels, only Fox News has covered the incident. Why have left-leaning news outlets ignored a racially-motivated hate crime that has shattered a community? We’ll leave that up to you to answer.

It’s September 2018, and Hanson sums up what’s missing in Mueller probe: The truth By World Tribune on September 2, 2018 byWorldTribuneStaff, September 2, 2018 Special counsel Robert Mueller’s “greatest problem was his original mandate” allowing an open-ended investigation of President Donald Trump, Hoover Institution Fellow Victor Davis Hanson wrote. So where are we after 15 months of indictments of an elected president’s associates, but on charges having nothing to do with Russian collusion to tilt the election in his favor? “We are left with the impression that Mueller cannot find much to do with his original mandate of unearthing Russian collusion, but he still thinks Trump is guilty of something,” Hanson wrote in a syndicated column. “In other words, Mueller has reversed the proper order of jurisprudence” in which a citizen is innocent until proven guilty. Mueller started his investigation, which he stacked with a “dream team” of Democratic Party loyalists, “with the assumption that the reckless raconteur Trump surely must be guilty of some lawbreaking. Thus, it is Mueller’s job to hunt for past crimes to prove it,” Hanson wrote. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, “is not facing legal trouble for destroying subpoenaed emails, for using an unlawful email server, or for the expenditure of campaign money on the Steele dossier.” Now Mueller “with the effort to go back years, if not decades, into Trump’s business and personal life” is entering “uncharted territory,” Hanson wrote. “The argument is not that Trump committed crimes while president – indeed, his record at home and abroad is winning praise. The allegations are instead about what he may have done as a private citizen, and whether it could have reversed the 2016 election.” Hanson said that Trump should “immediately declassify all documents – without redactions – relating to the Mueller investigation, the FISA court warrants, the Clinton email investigation, and CIA and FBI involvement with the dossier and the use of informants.” A second special counsel should also be appointed to “investigate wrongdoing on the part of senior officials in these now nearly discredited agencies,” Hanson wrote. “The mandate should be to discover whether there was serial conflict of interest, chronic lying to federal officials, obstruction of justice, improper unmasking and leaking, misleading of federal courts, and violation of campaign-finance laws.” Hanson concluded: “It is past time to stop the stonewalling, the redacting, the suppression, the leaking to the press, and the media hysteria. The government must turn over all relevant documents to two special counsels and free each to discover who did what in 2016. Americans need the whole truth to ensure equality under the law and to thereby set us free from this nearly two-year nightmare. collusion, DOJ, dossier, FBI, It’s September 2018 and Victor Davis Hanson sums up what’s missing in Mueller probe: The truth, Robert Mueller, special counsel, Trump-Russia, WorldTribune.com
As Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel continues to be forced down our throats as the “example” of what a Democrat should be, his city is going up in flames. Last weekend, 33 people were shot in Chicago. The PurgeThe timing of the new TV show, The Purge, could not be more perfect. As the knockoff of the hit movies prepares to premier on TV in two weeks, Chicagoans are living that horror every day. And while citizens of the city are falling victim to gun violence every day, the mayor does nothing to stop it. However, he always seems to find time to take the pulpit and rip the Donald Trump administration over its immigration policies. Emanuel is also quite proud of the fact his city is a sanctuary city for undocumented immigrants. Have you ever noticed that the cities run by liberal mayors who have turned them into safe havens for undocumented immigrants are also the most violent cities in our country? The ShootingsLate on Saturday night, a man was host outside the Hilton Hotel, a victim of a drive-by. On Sunday, a block party was broken up when two people got into an argument and decided to settle the dispute reminiscent of the Old West. Another victim was shot while riding his bike. The list goes on and on, many of the victims appearing to be random targets. This proves the narrative the violence is mostly gang warfare is nothing but a coverup by the mayor. ComicalOddly enough, local media were calling the weekend’s violence an improvement. The previous weekend, there were more than 70 shooting victims in the city. I guess that counts as progress. ___________________________
Horrified Onlookers Watch as 71 Drug Users Collapse in Connecticut Park... IN ONE DAY BY DEBRA HEINEAUGUST 15, 2018 New Haven emergency personnel respond to overdose cases on the New Haven Green in Connecticut on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018. (Arnold Gold/New Haven Register via AP)Residents watched in horror as more than 70 people collapsed near a city park in Connecticut Tuesday night into Wednesday, overdosing on what authorities believe was a tainted batch of synthetic marijuana. Vomiting and hallucinating drug users dropped like flies throughout the day as emergency crews raced to the New Haven Green to save lives. “We have a guy laid out in the alleyway, unresponsive, eyes wide open. He’s out cold,” one bystander hollered, according to the New Haven Register.
Up to 60 people overdose in New Haven as park visitors watch in horror https://t.co/wShrL3jWbJpic.twitter.com/416uRkzlSf — Drugs Reports (@Drugs_Reports) August 16, 2018An emergency medical technician for the New Haven Fire Department told the Register that he’s never had such an abnormal day at work in the five years he's been there. “This was a particularly odd, rare occasion where (there was) call after call for man down, obviously with symptoms of some kind of overdose, and at the time of getting that patient packaged and transported to the hospital, we’d see another immediately fall down, right there,” Lt. Ernest Jones said. “At that point, we’d go help that patient, and while helping that patient, another person went down. So it became a domino effect.” Out of the dozens of people rushed to the hospital, only two showed life-threatening symptoms, authorities said.
Victims displayed a multitude of symptoms, including "vomiting, hallucinating, high blood pressure, shallow breathing, semi-conscious and unconscious states,” according to Rick Fontana, director of the city’s Office of Emergency Operations. EMTs administered Naloxone, an antidote for narcotic overdoses, to some victims but it didn’t appear to be effective. Fire Chief John Alston said, “People are self-medicating for several different reasons and every agency — police, fire, medical, hospitals — all are strained at this time. This is a problem that’s not going away.” Alston said that based on the evidence at the scene, the drug was suspected to be K2, a synthetic marijuana. "We’ve heard some reports of people smoking things,” he said, "but it’s impossible to say with certainty if all victims received the same substance." K2, also known as "spice," is frequently laced with other drugs and can result in seizures, psychosis, and even death. “Do not come down to the Green and purchase this K2,” Police Chief Anthony Campbell said. “It is taking people out very quickly, people having respiratory failure. Don’t put your life in harm.” The Green is located in downtown New Haven and reportedly attracts homeless people and drug users throughout the year. Police arrested 37-year-old Felix Melendez in connection to at least some of the overdoses in the park. Melendez was out on parole prior to his arrest, according to the Register.

Sept 29th Demand apology from Government Officials who use this description for Concerned American Citizens
Definition of a Tea bagger .. To tea bag is a slang term for the sexual act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth of a willing sexual partner for pleasure or onto the face or head of another person. The name of the practice, when it is done in a repeated in-and-out motion, is derived from its passing resemblance to the dipping of a tea bag into a cup of hot water as a method of brewingtea. As a form of non-penetrative sex, it can be done for its own enjoyment or as foreplay. _________________________

The attorneys who represented Dr. Christine Blasey Ford when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee during Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings now face complaints with the D.C. bar. (Law & Crime)
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced on Friday that they filed the complaints against Debra Katz, Lisa Banks, and Michael Bromwich with the Board of Professional Responsibility of the District of Columbia Court.
The complaint, which was in the form of a letter to the Board’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel, accused Ford’s legal team of violating ethics rules by not informing Ford of overtures made by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa).
During her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford said she went to Washington, D.C. despite a fear of flying.
“I was hoping that they would come to me, but then I realized that was an unrealistic request,” she said, apparently not realizing that Grassley had already offered to do exactly that.
The watchdog organization alleges Ford's attorneys never told her she could've testified wherever she chose – even over the phone, as Chairman Grassley offered.
If true, that would be in direct violation of the D.C. Rules of Professional Conduct. Read more at ________________________
By Altair78 (talk). Based on a picture by Doug Waldron. [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons Legendary reporter Carl Bernstein, who played an indispensable role in bringing down President Nixon, is now engaged in his own, scandalous cover-up.
John Nolte reports: In a July 27 piece of very fake news Bernstein co-wrote with CNN anchor (and former Obama official) Jim Sciutto and researcher Marshall Cohen, Bernstein declaratively informs us, “Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen’s attorneys, Lanny Davis, declined to comment.”
That statement is a lie, a proven lie, a bald-faced lie, because we now know for a fact that Lanny Davis did NOT decline to comment. What’s more, Davis was a CNN source for that steaming pile of very fake news.
In other words… the anti-Trump Carl Bernstein did not only spread fake news, the anti-Trump Carl Bernstein published a straight-up lie in his fake news, reported something he knew was not true. ... Anyway, we also know Bernstein’s Trump Tower story is fake news because Bernstein’s source himself — the aforementioned Lanny Davis — has admitted the story is not true, and since the entire story is about what Michael Cohen says Trump knew and Lanny Davis is Michael Cohen’s attorney, there is simply no way for Bernstein and CNN to defend the story. (And this is why Bernstein and CNN cannot hide behind the shield that other sources back up the story, as CNN’s chief conspiracy theorist Brian Stetler is attempting to do.)
Moreover, Cohen told Congress under oath that he knew nothing about whether or not Trump had foreknowledge of said Trump Tower meeting. Read more at ________________________
Reality Winner has all the super-spy abilities of a 12-year-old GLENN BECK CEO/FOUNDER If you work for an organization called the National Security Agency – it's never a good idea to print out a copy of a secret military intelligence report and mail it to a news outlet. But that's what 26-year-old Reality Winner got busted for last year. Reality Winner, by the way, is apparently not her spy name. As a millennial, perhaps Miss Winner thought her old-school spy craft of mailing a physical piece of paper in an envelope would go undetected. She thought wrong. RELATED: Here's Why Accused NSA Leaker Reality Winner Is Back in the News Yesterday, Winner accepted a plea deal, and a federal judge sentenced her to 5 years and 3 months in prison. She could've received 10 years. Her attorney said: "She's a good person… who didn't understand the magnitude of what she was doing." Really? Did she miss orientation day at the NSA or something? What did she think they do there all day long? In court, Winner said: I had no intention to harm national security.Well, except for that time she mailed an intelligence report to an online news outlet. Oops, I meant to mail my dad a Father's Day card and I dropped this top-secret memo that I printed out in the mailbox instead. The classified NSA memo contained information about a cyberattack by Russians on a U.S. voting software supplier. Winner mailed the memo to The Intercept, which then published a detailed article about it. The detective work on this one was easy. The Intercept contacted the NSA and said, "hey, we got a copy of one of your memos… care to comment?" The NSA found that Winner was one of just six people who had printed the memo, and she was the only one who had email contact with The Intercept from her work computer. Winner was clearly not good spy material, nor quite the patriot that her parents insist she is.During the trial, it was also revealed that Winner wrote in a personal notebook: I want to burn the White House down.She also indicated a strong desire to travel to Pakistan and meet the Taliban. Then, while she was in the Air Force, prior to working at the NSA, there was the time she used her work computer to Google search: Do top secret computers detect when flash drives are inserted?Winner was clearly not good spy material, nor quite the patriot that her parents insist she is. But there's also the disturbing question of how the NSA hired such a Winner in the first place. __________________________

ByBEN SHAPIRO @BENSHAPIRO June 27, 2018 On Wednesday, the Supreme Court held that public sector unions could not use the force of government to compel non-union members to pay so-called “agency fees” — quasi-membership fees charged to them without their consent. This ruling will have a significant impact on public sector unions that have ill-served their members and non-members, many of whom will opt out of being part of the unions, undercutting the monetary base for some of those unions altogether. That’s a good thing. Here’s what you need to know. The law in the state of Illinois as well as federally states that if the majority of employees in a particular “bargaining unit” — as defined by a government agency — vote to join a union, that union then represents all employees for purposes of collective bargaining. This is insanity. It is a government-approved and instituted monopoly. Your ability to control your own labor is therefore subjected to a third party non-governmental organization, enforced with the government gun. Unions that do a good job represent enough employees that they don’t have to kneecap scabs to avoid people crossing picket lines or undercutting union negotiations. Unions sponsored by the government effectively kneecap any political opposition they receive from individuals. This is why union contracts don’t benefit great teachers, for example, but do help out rotten teachers who become unfire-able. This system of creating “labor peace” through government-created union monopoly violates basic principles of free association and destroys the purpose of government itself — which is to protect your life, your liberty, and your property. Furthermore, the notion of unions bargaining with the public sector is itself nonsensical. We have rules with regard to payment of state employees. They are created by legislatures, who are in turn answerable to the voter. The same does not hold true for union contracts, negotiated through tacit threat of strike. Public sector unions create the odd situation where the public pays to hire a police officer, for example, but the police officer tacitly works with the union to threaten to walk off the job, leaving the public unprotected. That’s blackmailing taxpayers. Now, such strikes have been generally held to be illegal, but that certainly hasn’t stopped them from taking place. What’s more, public sector unions — unlike private sector unions — are bargaining with non-stakeholders. Private sector unions bargain with the bosses, who are innately adversarial in terms of negotiating for lower pay in order to create more profit margin. Public sector union negotiations aren’t adversarial — legislators are incentivized to make deals with checks they don’t have to write. What’s more, unions know this, and spend enormous quantities of cash in order to elect precisely the legislators they believe will sign the most generous contracts with the unions. None of these issues were up for debate in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. The issue up for debate was an even more insane law: after compelling all workers in a particular “bargaining unit” to be represented by a union they may not even like, the law in Illinois required those non-members to pay cash to the unions. The Supreme Court struck this down, stating clearly that this was a violation of First Amendment principles. Justice Alito correctly wrote: Compelling individuals to mouth support for views they find objectionable violates that cardinal constitutional command, and in most contexts, any such effort would be universally condemned. Yes, yes, and yes. So, what will the impact be on public sector unions? Presumably, they’ll lose a fair bit of cash; perhaps some lose enough members to be decertified as a union. Unions will still get to collectively bargain on behalf of classes until then, but there’s always the possibility that they won’t provide services that please enough people. That’s their problem, as it always should have been. Forcing people to pay money to a non-governmental institution they never voted for is tyranny. Good for the Supreme Court for recognizing that basic fact. ___________________________
American Bar Association ends review of Brett Kavanaugh October 17, 2018 by Jerry McCormick Democrats have gotten more bad news in the Brett Kavanaugh saga. The America Bar Association (ABA) has dropped its review of Kavanaugh, who recently took his seat on the Supreme Court after a contentious series of confirmation hearings. Now that the review is officially over, Kavanaugh’s ABA rating will remain at “well-qualified.” It’s OverThere is little argument that Kavanaugh’s confirmation was one of the most challenging feats the Trump administration has accomplished. Prior to the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school, the ABA had given the judge a “well-qualified” rating. However, once the allegations were made, the ABA held back its rating so it could review the new information about Kavanaugh. Democrats were using this piece of information to their advantage, calling for a full investigation on the back of the ABA announcement. Eventually, Republicans caved and gave the Democrats exactly what they wanted: they held an auxiliary investigation into Kavanaugh based on the new allegations. But it came back to bite the Dems in a big way. Not only did the FBI come back with nothing, but the ABA also ended its review of Kavanaugh. Time to Move ForwardInitially, many people thought there would be significant rioting and protests against Kavanaugh. Apparently, though, most Americans simply let it go. While there were some fringe protestors, the numbers were almost non-existent and amazingly, there was little-to-no rioting over his confirmation.
Democrats have vowed to re-open this issue if they win a majority in Congress, but it seems as though most Americans have already put it behind them and want to move forward. That attitude by the Democrats, however, may end up being their undoing come November. ___________________________
Developing: Gregg Jarrett Predicts President Trump Will Declassify Russia Docs This Week (VIDEO) by Cristina LailaSeptember 1, 2018 On Saturday, FOX News legal analyst and attorney, Gregg Jarrett predicted President Trump will declassify the Russia docs this week in response to a Judicial Watch bombshell which revealed there was no FISA court hearings on the Carter Page warrants. Jarrett also predicted the President will fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the midterm elections. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch dropped a bombshell on Spygate Friday. The Justice Department admitted in a court filing this week that the FISA court never held hearings on the FISA applications for former Trump advisor Carter Page. One FISA warrant and three subsequent FISA renewals on Carter Page were obtained by Obama’s corrupt FBI in order to spy on Trump’s campaign.Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.
On Thursday, President Trump said Jeff Sessions is safe as Attorney General until at least the midterms. In an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs, the President said Sessions will remain AG until at least the midterms, however; he played coy when asked if Sessions is safe after the midterms. “I would just love to have him do a great job,” Trump said of Sessions. Top GOP Senators Grassley and Graham said they will both back President Trump if he fires AG Sessions after the 2018 midterm elections. It’s going to be one hell of an Autumn in D.C.! __________________________

ByEMILY ZANOTTI August 19, 2018 A record number of farms are hitting the market in South Africa as white farmers try desperately to offload land and leave the country before the government confiscates their acreage. According to a report in the Sunday Express, the African National Congress (ANC) — South Africa's ruling party — suggested last week that it is considering confiscating farmland from white farmers without compensation. In a meeting on "reforming land ownership," several civil servants claimed that its time to "expropriate" land from the country's white farmers in reparations for Apartheid. ANC's chairman Gwede Mantashe "sparked panic" when he agreed with reparations activists, telling a crowd that no white landowner should be allowed to control more than 25,000 acres. “You shouldn’t own more than 25,000 acres of land," Mantashe said. “Therefore if you own more it should be taken without compensation." South Africans — both black and white — aren't thrilled with the idea since a major re-appropropration and re-division of land would severely harm South Africa's farming industry, destroying jobs and opportunities for both black and white workers. Others, with knowledge of history — particularly what happened after the government grabbed land from white farmers in neighboring Zimbabwe — say they're terrified the government has no real plan for its seizure and could send the country tumbling into economic ruin. That hasn't stopped the rhetoric, though, and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is reportedly working on a plan to rewrite the country's constitution to allow for the land grab, under pressure from the far left within his own country who are challenging the ANC in upcoming elections by telling voters they'll grab the land without approval. "We are not advocating for a white genocide. But the land belongs to us. We will do everything we can to get it back," one far left leader told media during a meeting last week. White farmers aren't waiting around to find out who wins in the race to grab their land; they're leaving. Hundreds of farms are now for sale in South Africa as farmers take off to Australia and other countries where farmland is plentiful and immigration requirements are lenient. __________________________
The Agitated Schoolmarm Returns: Obama Hasn’t Lost His Classic Tone-Deafness bypeterheck 1 day-edited Oh how we missed the collective experience of being put in the timeout corner after having disappointed schoolmarm Obama If there’s one thing I think all Americans have missed since the presidency of Barack Obama ended, it has to be the former president’s propensity for delivering speeches or addresses that had all the characteristics of an agitated schoolmarm lecturing her unruly and disobedient students. Nothing unified the American people for those eight years quite like the collective experience of being placed in the time-out corner after disappointing our exalted ruler. That’s why it was so nice to take a walk down memory lane listening to Obama’s speech at a Nelson Mandela event held in South Africa Tuesday. As if reading the minds of so many of his fellow countrymen who long to have their president indirectly tell them how stupid they are and how much they need his guidance, Obama came out scolding: “This is another one of these things that I didn’t think I had to lecture about: you have to believe in facts…Unfortunately, too much of politics today seems to reject the very concept of objective truth. People just make stuff up…we see the utter loss of shame among political leaders where they’re caught in a lie and they just double down.” See, this was the glory of the Obama years – his peeved sermons rebuking us for a sin that he never seemed to recognize he was guilty of committing with, given his position of influence, far more damaging consequences. How oblivious does one have to be, after all, to pontificate about other leaders doubling down on lies they’ve been caught in rather than confessing them, when the cloud of “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” hanging over his head? And that reality brought back another glorious memory of the Obama tenure – a completely complicit and disinterested media eager only to act as megaphones and cheerleaders for the Dear One. For all the recent talk about the courage of intrepid, truth-telling, fact-finding media warriors, none seemed interested in pointing out this whopper of an elephant in Obama’s living room. How nice that some things never change. Along those lines, what Obama lecture would be complete without the obligatory reference to the driving force behind his presidency, racial division? He intoned: “[Democracy means understanding] the reality of people who are different than us…You can’t do it if you insist that those who aren’t like you because they’re white, or because they’re male…that somehow they lack standing to speak on certain matters.” Gosh how I miss President Obama making grand speeches about racial reconciliation before turning around and doing all he could to exploit and exacerbate racial tension for political gain. Don’t misunderstand, this statement he made in South Africa is exactly right. But he doesn’t really mean it. He never did. He champions the Planned Parenthood gaggle that pretends men can’t speak to the dignity of human life because they're not women. And he promotes the voices who pretend that “white privilege” disqualifies a white person from transcending racism and that minorities are incapable of racism themselves. Yes, for a few brief moments in Johannesburg two days ago, we were taken back to a time in our not-so-distant past when words were to mean everything and actions were to mean nothing. Provided those words were approved by the schoolmarm-in-chief, that is. __________________________
