Trump Takin’ It to the Left: I’m Lovin’ It!
by Lloyd Marcus • February 21, 2017
I received this slick campaign video in my email, titled “How To Resist The Trump Agenda,” and thought it was a joke. After realizing that the video was for real, I thought, “What the…?!”
Folks, I’ve been a black Tea Party guy from its beginning. I penned, recorded, and performed “The American Tea Party Anthem” at over 500 Tea Party rallies on 14 national bus tours.
Thus, I witnessed that the movement was filled with white duped Obama voters who had realized he was driving us to a place we did not want to go: down the road to socialism. Tea Partiers’ opposition had nothing to do with Obama’s skin color. And yet despicable leftist fake news media portrayed opposing Obama’s unlawful overreaches as racist and unpatriotic. Well, now that same immoral media is boldly leading the charge to oppose everything Trump while elevating every Trump resister to sainthood. Suddenly, leftists have decreed that opposing our president is the epitome of patriotism and moral righteousness.
Folks, please get this truth down in your souls. There is an unprecedented effort by the fake news media; Obama; George Soros; the Democratic Party, conservative NeverTrumps; establishment elites; Hollywood; assorted leftist groups; and traitorous GOP Washington, D.C. status quo defenders to take down our new president.
The only thing Trump has in his corner is We the People who voted for him. But be of good cheer, folks, because we and God are a powerful majority. All you prayer warriors out there, please keep prayin’ for President Trump.
Am I advocating that we blindly rubber-stamp everything Trump does? Absolutely not. I am saying it emboldens our enemies when folks on our side join leftists in nitpicking Trump at every turn. Obviously, NeverTrumps still do not realize what’s at stake and the evil we are dealing with on the left.
Leftists, for the most part, are godless people who seek to crush all traditional norms, rendering conservatives dispirited and politically dead. Leftists deem causing pain, suffering, and the loss of American lives minor consequences in implementing their godless socialist-progressive agenda. Cancer patients lost their life-saving doctors due to Obamacare. Leftists didn’t care. Four Americans were tortured and murdered in Benghazi for Obama’s re-election. Not only did leftists not care, but Obama’s minions repeatedly lied about it on national TV.
If leftists care about American lives, why do they celebrate Democrats refusing to pass Kate’s Law, which protects Americans from illegal alien multiple criminal offenders?
Folks, I could go on and on with examples of how leftists do not give a rat’s derrière about American lives. We’re all just pawns to be used to get them what they want. All leftists care about is ensuring that men use little girls’ restrooms and opening our borders to everyone who wants to come to America for freebies.
President Trump is trying to stop the insanity. Meanwhile, NeverTrumps are obsessed with the man’s imperfections. I do not care about Trump’s shortcomings. At the end of the day, I believe that Trump is a good man who truly desires to make our country great again. My fellow Americans, that is good enough for me.
This has annoyed me for years. Leftists are totally free to spread horrific lies about us. Democrat Alan Grayson outrageously said the Tea Party and Republicans want sick people to die. To ignite racial hate, Democrat Andre Carson said the Tea Party wants to see blacks hanging from trees.
Frustratingly, many blacks in my family hate Trump because they believe the fake news lie that he is a racist.
Democrats are allowed to say whatever hate-generating thing their deviant minds conceive with the media’s blessings. Leftists arrogantly believe that free speech entitles them to break the law, incite violence, and destroy property, doing gross things like dumping a bucket of feces in a public lobby.
Meanwhile, Republican and conservative political advisers relentlessly caution us to walk on eggshells – go slow and be nice, careful not to make leftists too angry. Even after our electoral landslide victory awarding the GOP control of the House, Senate and W.H., we are still advised to find common ground to work with leftists. Well, how do you work with people who want you politically dead?
Am I suggesting that we mimic the left’s bad behavior? Heaven forbid. I am simply suggesting that NeverTrumps cut our people, Trump, and his administration some slack. Trump is trying to drain the D.C. swamp, something no other administration has attempted to do. I don’t care that the Trump gang is a bit rough around the edges. He is making reforms, and for that I say, “Thank you, God!” I am sick of our side eating our courageous fighters every time we discover that they cannot walk on water – Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Joe Miller, and Chris McDaniel, to name a few.
Thank God, President Trump is not playing by standard ineffective rules for Republican behavior. He is calling out leftist fake news media, Democrats, and other liars while quickly moving forward with the domestic agenda he promised during his campaign. By calling them out, Trump puts leftists on the defensive for a change while retaining his power.
There’s a new sheriff in town, folks, and I love it!
In the left’s “resisting Trump’s agenda” video, they claim that over half a million downloaded their guide, over 100,000 have registered, and over 3,000 groups have registered. It is well documented that leftists lie about practically everything. So take their claims with a grain of salt. We America-loving Trump supporters outnumber them. Let’s work on keeping it that way with rallies, etc.
I for one, as I am sure are millions of Americans, am standing up and cheering President Trump on. Folks, the only way Trump can fail to implement his and our agenda is for him to lose our support. Barring Trump betraying us, we cannot allow that to happen. I realize I sound like a broken record, but we must stand together, holding up our president’s arms to counter the tsunami of attacks coming from both sides of the political aisle. May God be with us.

JUST IN: LEGISLATION PASSES 49-43, WARREN DISMISSED FROM THE SENATE FLOOR
Posted by Matthew Bernstein
Feb 9, 2017 | American Strength
You Break The Rules, You Pay The Price
The Senate has the all-important task of coming together and either confirming or denying the presidential appointments. This has been a rule since the Constitution of the United States was founded. For a presidential appointment to be confirmed, they had to have the approval of at least 60 Senators.
The Democrats changed that rule back in 2013 when they invoked the “nuclear option.” This allowed a simple majority to approve a presidential appointment, meaning only 51 senators had to approve it, instead of the 60. That also meant that it would be harder to deny a presidential appointment.
Now that President Donald Trump is in the Oval Office, this nuclear option is working to benefit him immensely, much to the Democrats dismay. So instead of sucking it up and moving on, they have moved to degrading and attacking some of the president’s appointments for his Cabinet.
Senator Elizabeth Warren was in the middle of speaking to the Senate when she was referencing a letter that was attacking Senator Jeff Sessions, Trump’s appointment for Attorney General. That was when the Republicans had had enough of Warren and promptly silenced her from speaking out anymore.
They Shut Her Down
The Senate voted, 49-43, in favor of silencing Warren and stopping her from continuing her floor speech. This was a new low from the Democrats, considering that Sessions is still a Senator and the rules forbid going after Senators, either directly or indirectly.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the final decision to silence Warren’s attacks. “The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama.” He then demanded the vote to punish Warren for speaking out.
McConnell said that Senator Warren had violated the rules once, was even given a warning AND an explanation about the rules, and “nevertheless she persisted,” which resulted in the second violation. That second violation is what caused McConnell to act and effectively punish her.
Democrats were outraged at the silencing of Warren. Warren herself said that her offending comments were quoting the late wife of Martin Luther King Jr. when she originally objected to Sessions’ nomination to a federal judgeship back in the 1980s. However that still violated the rules as Warren was still indirectly going after Sessions.
“I am surprised that the words of Coretta Scott King are not suitable for debate in the United States Senate.” They are, just not when they are used to attack a Senator that is going for a presidential appointment. It’s surprising that Warren doesn’t know that.
She Should Know These Rules
The letter at the time had King accusing Sessions of “a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters.” That’s an attack on character if I ever saw.
It continued by saying, “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens in the district he now seeks to serve as a federal judge,” King wrote. Again, that’s a blatant attack on Sessions that is indeed a violation of the rules.
A senator should know the rules of the chamber, and yet Warren continued to claim that she wasn’t attacking or questioning the conduct of Sessions. She has schemed and lied for the last time against Sessions however, as she is unable to speak out against him anymore.
Democrats attempted to stop the vote on punishment and that was when Warren threw one last attempt, a hail-Mary, to continue speaking out. “Why don’t you just let me finish?”
It’s simple. You violated the rules TWICE. If you break the rules, then you have to suffer the consequences. The fact that you were warned about this after the first rule violation, and continuedto go after Sessions is either stupidity or intentional. Nevertheless, Warren was warned and she needed to suffer the consequences.
Time To Pay The Price!
If you have a problem with the punishment, then maybe next time don’t continue to do what you did! It’s really that simple. However these are Democrats we are talking about and they are either going to protest the decision or complain about it instead of accepting the results.
Democrats have a hard time accepting facts and rules however, as they have routinely said that they were not going to accept Donald Trump as the new president of the United States. They have called Trump an “illegitimate” president, because of the rumors that the Russians helped get Trump elected. However there hasn’t been any proof of that whatsoever. That folks, is indeed a fact.
The Democrats have been so twisted that they are making sure to include every single minority in their party. It has gone too far however, as they are now calling for a no white policy moving forward. They are getting rid of whites in their party just to focus on the minorities in the country. Apparently including everyone doesn’t actually mean everyone.
Share this article to show that Senator Warren decided she was going to be a rule breaker and continue to blast Senator Sessions. Considering the fact that she broke the rules and was made aware of her violation, Warren deserved to be punished. Those saying she was treated unfairly don’t understand that actions have consequences.
The Left’s Vagina-Based Politics Demeans Women
BY: BEN SHAPIRO
JANUARY 25, 2017
Last Saturday, in an attempt to demonstrate outrage at … at … well, at something , some three million people across the country, mostly women, participated in women’s marches. The scattershot platform for the march included public funding for contraception and abortion, equal pay, protections for illegal immigrants, anti-Israel activism and taxpayer-subsidized tampons, among other disparate causes. What united them? Hatred for the reality that Donald Trump was sworn in as president of the United States on Friday.
Two contrasting images emerged from the march itself: first, people filling the streets out of pure, unadulterated but vaguely motivated frustration; second, some of the most egregiously perverse speeches and signage in modern political history. While the left celebrated the first image — isn’t this a sign of a political uprising in the making? — it ignored the second image, which is far more likely to backfire than to generate enthusiasm.
That second image was promulgated by celebrities like Ashley Judd, who was once considered a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for the Senate in Kentucky. The has-been actress raged: “I am a nasty woman. … I didn’t know devils could be resurrected, but I feel Hitler in these streets. A mustache traded for a toupee. … I am nasty like the bloodstains on my bed sheets. We don’t actually choose if and when to have our periods. Believe me, if we could, some of us would. We do not like throwing away our favorite pairs of underpants. Tell me, why are pads and tampons still taxed when Viagra and Rogaine are not?”
Meanwhile, thousands of women donned “p——hats,” or pink knit caps with cat ears, designed to rebuke Trump for the “Access Hollywood” tape in which he said he could grab women “by the p——” and get away with it. They marched with signs reading, “Leave My P—— Alone” and “If abortion is murder then b—-jobs are cannibalism” and “This P—— Bites And She Slays.” NARAL Pro-Choice America handed out signs with similar messages.
This reduction of women to their constituent body parts is particularly ironic coming from the same side of the political aisle that declares that men sometimes have vaginas and that some women have penises. But more importantly, reducing female priorities to killing babies and increased funding for maxi pads merely objectifies women. Instead of recognizing that women have all sorts of political views, instead of recognizing that many women believe that they ought to be left alone by government in order to pursue their dreams, the women’s marches declared that government has to treat vaginal possession with a sort of victim status, deserving of special protection.
The suggestion that the government must guarantee special privileges for women because their biology makes them somehow lesser, or that abortion rights are necessary to achieve equality, reduces the fight for female equality to the fight for female sameness . That’s insulting to women.
And it’s off-putting to voters. If these women are so concerned about vulgarity, why do they embrace it? If they’re so upset that Trump supposedly reduces women to body parts, why promote that same silly thinking?
The left tried to run on the War on Women in 2016 and lost. Now they’re doubling down. But apparently, so long as they can pat themselves on the back for their unearned moral superiority, they’ll be happy.
Congressman Messer, Senators Coats and Donnelly,
I'm sure you're familiar with the 2nd amendment. Achieving the "security of a free state" requires the state's citizens be able to defend themselves against bad guys and tyrants. That means carrying a gun for self defense and the defense of others.
In spite of the 2nd amendment, the lack of consistency between state laws makes carrying when traveling a risk. You can cross a state line and go from a law abiding citizen to a felon in the blink of an eye. The best example is, if I travel to see my friends in Illinois, with my legally concealed handgun, I'm immediately breaking the law. I already have a lifetime Indiana concealed carry permit, and a Florida non-resident concealed carry permit. I need that Florida permit just to go shopping in Ohio, which is less than 20 miles from my home.
I expect you, as my elected representatives, to support the newly introduced National Firearms Reciprocity Bill. This bill will give all citizens of our country the ability to exercise their 2nd amendment rights, regardless of which state they're traveling in, assuming they've got a valid concealed carry permit for their home state. This is important to me and lots of other Indiana citizens.
We citizens will be watching. If you can't co-sponsor this bill for some reason, at least vote in favor of it. If you don't feel you can do so, I'd like a very good explanation for why you've come to that conclusion.
Senator Coats, I thank you for your loyal service to our state and I hope you'll pass this along to the incoming Senator Young.
To: Pastors, Christian & Community Leaders
Subj: What can be done to restore America to a Christian nation?
Our culture and society has come to a crossroads and it is time for Christians to make a stand for godly principles! According to studies by George Barna, the Nehemiah Institute, the Council on Family life et al, we are losing 80-90% of our children to the corrupted world. How is that happening?
Public school children are being indoctrinated in secular humanism and a socialistic worldview with impunity. Sadly, existing Christian schools are not much more successful inculcating a biblical worldview in their students than those graduating from public schools. One main reason is that those teaching were educated in schools which taught from a secular, rather than a biblical worldview. While this is disconcerting to say the least, God can use it for good if pastors and national Christian leaders take the necessary steps to ensure a different outcome. Unless this trend can be reversed within a decade, we will resemble Europe where only 5% attend church.
One solution is to make certain that those in leadership of the church and/or school possess a biblical worldview. You can’t pass on what you don’t have. One example: I challenged my church to test the pastorate and staff to take the Nehemiah Institute’s PEERS test www.Whatsyourworldview.org. The PEERS test is an assessment program designed to reveal an individual’s worldview on Politics, Economics, Education, Religion and Social issues. The test revealed that only one individual had a biblical worldview! (The results of the test are in the strictest confidence.) This is not all that surprising, since studies show that only 9% of Christians have a biblical worldview.
To help solve this problem, the Nehemiah Institute has developed a biblical worldview training program called “The Kingdom Seminar” for use by Christian high schools and colleges, families and churches (www.worldviewcourse.com). Enclosed is information about this seminar.
Another way to make an impact is to dispel the theory of evolution, which the secular world uses to dispel belief in God and the Bible.
Randolph Productions, www.go2RPI.com, distributes a series of inexpensive 45 minute DVD’s which show the impossibility of evolution. Their DVD, “Origin” dispels the possibility that life is nothing more than the product of blind, undirected processes. The DVD, “Unlocking the Mystery of Life” shows how unbelievably complex the so-called “simple cell” is, and the DVD, “Privileged Planet” shows how complex the universe is, and the impossibility that it arose without an omniscient, omnipotent God.
Please, prayerfully consider utilizing the above suggestions to help return America back to the Christian nation which the Puritans established. This is a critical time in our culture to make a difference for God’s glory! You have the opportunity to help restore America. I hope and pray that you’ll do your part. If you have any questions, please contact me at (352) 216-1703 or email: email@example.com

The medical community is unable to reach consensus on what to do with America's health insurance situation.
The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.
The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter."
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.
JOIN THE PRO-TRUMP BOYCOTT: THE COMPANY THAT SOLD OUT TO SOROS, NOW SPREADING HATE FOR A PROFITPosted by Allison Hillman | Feb 9, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
People are boycotting Netflix over their new racist show
George Soros has been busy. There have been so many chances for him to use his money to further spread hate and anti-Trump rhetoric, it is a wonder that he isn’t broke yet.
He helped Hillary finance her campaign and then he threw money at the worthless recount efforts. He has also been discovered to be the source of many of the anti-Trump protests taking place. He is certainly not above using violence to get what he wants.
It seems that whenever he sees an opportunity to support a cause against Trump and America in general, he leaps at the opportunity and doesn’t care what the consequences are.
His newest ventures involve some major companies, it appears he might be attempting to use that influence to further his hate movement.
One company he has recently invested heavily in is Amazon. Soros increased his stake in Amazon in the third quarter by a remarkable 215.15%. He now owns $33.08 million worth of shares. This is still only a small percentage of his mass holdings but it is significant in the access it gives him to the American public.
Recently Amazon has been in the news for their moves towards robotic employees rather than human. Amazon currently employs around 300,000 people, an important statistic given the current economic problems of America. What happens to the job market as humans become obsolete and robots take over?
It seems a company that size would want to continue giving jobs to its consumers. Perhaps Soros is having a negative impact on them already?
What is he planning next?
Soros’ other recent investment includes media giant Netflix. Again, in the third quarter, he added $13.05 million shares worth of the company to his portfolio.
He arrived at a convenient time for the company; they were suffering financially according to their second quarter reports. Slow domestic and international subscriber growth was a contributing factor. There were fears from investors that the company could not keep up with rising brands such as Amazon and Hulu.
Analysts suggested that Netflix should focus on their original content, something that they do very well. This of course would come with increased spending. That, combined with the decreasing subscription growth, became a turn-off for many investors. Not George Soros though.
He invested in a big way and it seems to be paying off for both him and the company. In fact, Netflixis releasing a new original series called “Dear White People.”
We refuse to believe that the timing of George Soros’ large investment and the release of a show that is so obviously anti-white are unrelated. As one article declares, “Netflix’s New Series ‘Dear White People’ Is a Big F U to All White People.”
The series is based on the 2014 movie with the same name. Netflix has released a teaser trailer, describing the series as a “satirical look at post racial America following the experiences of black students at a predominantly white Ivy League college.
It is an interesting side not that MTV released a YouTube video late last year called, “Dear White Guys.” The short clip was full of racially charged accusations against white people, inferring that the majority are racist.
The teaser for Netflix’s new show is not much better. The 30-second trailer features the show’s star Logan Browning as Ivy League student and radio host Samantha White.
She is describing the list of “acceptable” Halloween costumes for white students on her show Dear White People.
Her racist list of acceptable costumes includes “pirate, slutty nurse and any of our first 43 presidents.” Then she announces the “top of the list” of unacceptable costumes: “me.” This includes images of students dressed in blackface appear on the screen.
The left would like you to believe that racism towards white people doesn’t exist, that it can’t exist. Trying to be objective, it is difficult to see this type of propaganda as anything but blatant racism.
If you can’t help but wonder the kind of outrage a show called “Dear Black People” would cause, you aren’t alone. How about “Dear Muslim People?” It is easy to imagine the cries of the mobs as they gather to protest.
Nobody seems to be batting an eye at Netflix’s offering. George Soros has financed a winner here, and in today’s racially charged climate, his projects go forward with few protests.
This man and his agenda are nothing but poison. He hates Donald Trump, hates “racist” white people, and without a doubt hates America.
As President Trump’s popularity grows, people like George Soros need to be held accountable for their actions. What is the point of battling for racial equality only to take that and use it to push the scale so far in the opposite direction you end up with a new race being oppressed?
If Soros is so unhappy with this country and the direction President Trump is taking it, I would love to suggest some alternatives for where he can take himself and all his money.
UNASHAMED ANTI-ZIONISM AND DEMAGOGUERY OF PASTOR CHUCK BALDWIN
By Alexander Gofen
January 21, 2017
[NOTE: The opinion in this article is the opinion of the author and is not necessarily the opinion of NewsWithViews.com, it's employees, advertisers, representatives, or other contributing writers.]
It is rare in these days to see such unashamed anti-Zionism displayed loud and proud by a seemingly conservative author, whose language and arguments are, however, more appropriate to the vile socialist left. Mr. Baldwin resorts to demagoguery by mixing together both valid and very invalid issues, i.e., anti-Zionism rants. [Link]
It is surely a valid observation that the spread of homosexuality in America is not confronted enough by our spiritual leaders, and worse, some priests and rabbis pander to and fear the homosexual Mafia more than God.
Yet, it is wrong and ugly to speak about Zionism as though something reprehensible.(*) It is wrong to blame renowned pastors such as John Hagee for their friendliness to the State of Israel and for being a Christian Zionist. In fact, every consistent Christian must be a Christian Zionist as I will explain. And, it is particularly ugly to blame the President-elect Donald J. Trump, for his promises to honor the rights of Israel for her land and capital, while the entire world, pandering to the left and Islam, have turned hatred against the Jewish Homeland.
It is both base and ugly to sarcastically characterize the year 2017 and Trump’s presidency as though it represents “The Year of the Zionists.” Your language, Pastor Baldwin, is no different than that of the Soviet Politburo. What a badge of honor you wear!
Let me clarify some of the basics of Zionism for you, Pastor Baldwin.
1) In a secular sense, Zionism is merely a case of the general formula that “Nation X belongs to people X” just as France belongs to the French, Britain belongs to the Brits, Germany to Germans, Spain to Spaniards, Greece to the Greeks, and yes, Israel to the Jews! Zionism is no different than Frenchism, Germanism, etc., except that the Jews ownership of their land began 3,000 years ago, before France, Britain, and Germany even existed.
2) The restoration of Israel on her ancient land is an act of immense significance in terms of both social and spiritual justice. Since ancient times, Israel has been a victim of colonialism and oppression. Therefore, as a socialissue, Zionism is the most justified case of a national liberation movement, one which delivered the Jewish people, victims of extreme oppression and genocide for centuries, to their national liberation and the restoration of their nationhood.
3) As a spiritual issue, Zionism is a realization of God’s plan, an act of the highest spiritual value for Jews and consistent Christians. Yet, Israel is the only nation refused basic justice by the rest of the world, the world which was ready to sacrifice Israel for whatever minute reason, or for no reason at all. Any expectations of justice for Israel from this world are futile (Eric Hoffer).
To be a Zionist is a badge of honor. That is Zionism. To be an anti-Zionist is a mark of baseness.
4) Pastor Baldwin, you are saying that contemporary Israel is not exactly like the model promised by God…fair enough. However, who else is such a model? Whose existence, security, and national interests are questioned and conditioned by other foreign nations? Here is a quote for you. Remember Europe in the 1930s?
Ask yourself this:
• Is it possible for the whole world to be against Jews? Yes.
• Is it possible that the whole world can be wrong? Yes.
• What was the motivating factor then? Antisemitism.
• What is the motivating factor today? Antisemitism.
• Then the world opposed the existence of one Jew.
• Today the world opposes the existence of one Jewish state.
Back then, the world opposed the existence of one Jew. Today, the world opposes the existence of one Jewish State. And yet you are concerned with 2017 being “The Year of the Zionists” for America.
5) America was founded as a Judeo-Christian nation, not anything else. It is a spiritual obligation of America to take the side of Christians and Jews in world affairs. And, it is in America’s national interests to support Israel, the only free nation in the Middle East, and America’s strongest ally in the region.
As Eric Hoffer wrote in 1968 “Israel is our only reliable and unconditional alley. We can rely more on Israel than Israel can rely on us.” [Link] These bitter words are even more true now. And you, Pastor Baldwin, are displeased already about future actions of President Donald J. Trump towards making America a more reliable and honest ally of Israel! Shame on you and your ministry!
(*) It is very puzzling and illogical of the hatred to Israel by Western nations and some of their so-called conservatives. Their actions and reasoning exactlyreplicate the Soviet Politburo.
Soviets hated Israel for too many reasons. First of all, because she allied with America and the West rather than with the Soviets, and because the Soviets hated the very possibility that some small fraction of their population may even contemplate the idea of leaving the USSR for good, or even to be somehow associated with Jewry in the external world. This is the exact reason that Soviets made Zionism a curse word, and a reason for persecution in the USSR! Even learning Hebrew could trigger criminal prosecution back then.
Indeed, the KGB created the PLO, Arafat and the so-called “Palestinian people,” (trained in various Soviet military camps, including one near Odessa, the city where I lived.) And, indeed, it was Soviets who promoted the UN resolution equating Zionism and Fascism (a gross cynicism in itself). But that was the USSR.
To imagine that anyone in the West would follow the same propaganda line is unthinkable! It is as if the West borrowed the Soviet talking points for bashing the allies of the West such as South Vietnam, South Korea, or West Germany! And yet, the West, and some of western conservatives, did borrow the Soviet talk points to bash Israel. That is a grotesque reality these days.

The Best Thing I Have Ever Read on 401Ks: Why Your 401K Is A Scam
Why Your 401K Is A Scam
By James Altucher
I hate writing about finance. The most violent, ugly people in the world work in the traditional finance industry.
I write something and instead of responding with a well-reasoned argument, they write things like "James Altucher is a wacko" or "James Altucher is a scumbag".
I've written for or appeared on the Wall St Journal, the Financial Times, CNBC, Fox Business, ABC, and many other finance sites. I've run hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, I've day traded, i've run a VC fund.
I see what happens inside the system. It's ugly. And they don't like you.
Almost 100% of financial journalism is BS, written by people who don't know anything about finance.
Almost everyone writing in the finance world has an agenda.
For instance, the last time I wrote about why a house is a bad thing to buy, someone wrote an article, "James must be an idiot."
I looked him up. He was a VP at the "National Association of Realtors" or some organization like that.
And when I wrote that kids shouldn't pay $200,000 on an education, another group wrote an article saying I was completely wrong and gave "proof" (they made every statistics mistake possible).
The authors: a research team at Georgetown University.
And when I recently wrote that 401k plans (retirement plans set up by corporations for their employees) were a scam, MANY people wrote very nice emails to me saying I verified their own private concerns.
But then a surprising thing happened. A lot of people, many I considered friends in the finance industry, wrote again that I was totally off the deep end this time.
They never disclosed that their businesses depend on investing 401k funds or somehow obtain fees because of 401k plans.
So maybe every Friday I'm going to write a little about finance if you think this is a good idea.
I stopped writing about it over five years ago because A) finance is boring and B) it has nothing to do with increasing someone's power over their own lives (in most cases).
People want more out of life than knowing what direction Apple stock is going. They want to fulfill their dreams and their passions, not just survive in the drudgery of a cubicle.
I have no agenda. I am not pushing any 401k product, or house, or fund, or anything.
But I just want to light up the facts about things people are lying to you about. Then you can decide.
Next Friday, if I continue doing this, I'm going to write about why and when you should stop paying back your credit card debt.
But I still feel an itch to address 401ks.
Listen: they are scams. This is another trillion dollar industry that has a lot of money at stake if people stop believing in the mythology bolted to the scam.
Let's go over the pros and then the cons:
The PROS of a 401k
You put money away before it is taxed. This has the benefit of encouraging you to save starting at a young age.
Often your employer will match what you put in your 401k. So it's "free money" (ask yourself: why is this the only example of free money in the entire world?).
When you are 59.5 years old you are allowed (like a parent allows a child) to take money out. It's taxed then but now you've benefited from the 7% per year that, by law (kidding) the stock market goes up.
I can't really think of any other pros. If you can think of some, please put in comments and I will try to address.
CONS of 401Ks
Let's look at it conceptually for a second and then I will look at the cons.
You are paid money by an employer. You have that money in your hands for five seconds, and then it is whisked away into this account and you can't look at it again for another 20-35 years unless you want to pay a massive penalty.
Will you be alive in 30 years? Hopefully! Else you will never see that money again.
Ok, that's my first problem with 401k. I like to have total control over money that is called mine.
Ok, let's look at the cons:
1) You can't predict your tax rate 30 years from now.
This completely destroys the whole "tax-deferred" argument.
Let's say you put money in your 401k at the age of 29. You are making much less money than you probably will be at the age of 59.
So your tax rate is less than your tax rate at 59, forgetting completely that taxes might be raised also (we just don't know) between now and then.
So we don't really know if you are saving money on taxes or not. You are simply having your money taken from you for 30 years.
Also, when you take money out of your 401k, you are taking out more than you put in (chances are, because your expenses are higher). So your tax rate will almost certainly be higher. Again, ruining the entire point of putting in pre-tax income.
2) The Employer Match
Do you think companies really pay you free money?
Companies that don't have an employer-match pay higher salaries. The Center for Retirement Research did a study based on tax data and showed that for every dollar an employer (on average) contributes to a 401k match, they pay 99 cents less in salary.
Also employers don't give you all the money at once. They spread it out over 4-6 years (six years is the regulated max or they would spread it out longer is my guess).
If you leave before the six years, you often don't get the match. So employers actually save money in the long run by installing a 401k plan.
How many employees stay at their jobs for six years? Not that many. The average is 4.6 years according to the Bureau of Labor Statistic.
Goodbye employer match.
People don't manage 401k plans for free. There is a cost. Then there is a cost in the mutual funds they put their money in.
Then there is revenue-sharing between employers and 401k plan managers. Is this legal? Yes. It might not always be but it is now and it is how employers make some of the money back on matching what you put in.
Is this transparent? Of course.
Does the average person look at all the fine print detailing fees? Of course not. I don't. (I have a 20 year old 401k account).
Then there is the fine print on each mutual fund the 401k manager has allocated the money to. Do I look at that fine print? No.
Many mutual funds charge extra marketing fees. Do yours? I have no idea. Most people don't. Which is how they get away with it on a trillion dollars.
Which is part of the reasons 86% (!) of mutual fund managers underperform the market.
Now, in many cases you can say, "I want to put in a low-fee exchange traded fund" but a) will you do that? and b) they still have some fees.
4) Assumption on market returns.
The market has returned somewhere between 7-10% per year depending on what time period you look at, what index, etc.
The average investor has returned 1.8% per year over the past 40 years. The psychology of investing is very difficult. In 2009, many investors pulled out of the market, right before a 100% upward move.
And when I say, "many investors", I'm not talking about you - I'm talking about the best mutual fund managers in the business.
5) More on taxes.
Yes, you save tiny amounts on taxes when you are young. But this is also the period when you have the biggest tax write-offs relative to your income (dependents, business expenses, etc).
So you don't really need the extra minor savings on taxes. Trust me, you will be fully taxed at the highest rate when you pull money out 30 years from now.
So why not use that "extra" money to invest in yourself right now. Invest in skills that can benefit you or experiences that you can enjoy and make you happier.
401k plans have been around for decades. And yet the average retiree does not have enough savings for retirement.
So the evidence is fully in. 401k plans did not help.
So how does one save?
The average multi-millionaire, according to tax data, has at least 7 different sources of income.
You can keep your job. But think about how to make money on side jobs. It doesn't have to be tomorrow. Just think about it and start coming up with ideas.
Or take a job where you financial success is more in tune with the financial success of the company.
With industry being outsourced and knowledge being outsourced, the best investment is in yourself.
This might mean take courses that you can later monetize (photography, wordpress development, copywriting, freelance writing, etc).
Or it might mean studying investments. The best investors are usually the top hedge fund managers. Study their investments. Copy what they do (but don't invest in them. Ugh!).
Anyway, I don't like writing about finance. But I can assure you I have no agenda on 401k plans.
I get emails every day from people who are scared and frustrated.
They have reached their retirement page and everyone up until now has lied to them about the benefits of 401ks. So they are worried about how they will survive.
My agenda is to try and help. A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine says I was a waste of flesh because I was against 401ks. Guess what he does for a living? He manages 401k plans!
Perhaps the main point of this article is that one way to choose yourself is to look at the agendas of people selling you something.
It's ok for them to make money. I don't blame these people. Maybe some of them are good. But get all the facts so YOU can choose instead of THEM.
Question ALWAYS the trillion dollar industries that are paying millions to fool you (finance industry, housing industry, college industry, etc).
“THE DEVIL!” – Top Democrats TURN Against Obama’s Shadow Government
Finally, some commonsense is leaking into American politics, with infighting, which is now apparently going on in the Democrat party.
According to a new report on WND.com, Stephen Handwerk, the Louisiana Democrat Party Executive Director, wrote an email in response to Obama’s shadow government, stating, “This is some GRADE A Bulls-t right here.”
He then stated something I would think even the dumbest of Democrats should realize right now, “It also to me seems TONE DEAF – we have lost over 1,000 seats in the past 8 years … all because of this crap.”
Well, it is actually not crap, Obama’s work with Organizing for Action,and the shadow government many suspect it to be apart of, is treason!
Never before have we seen such a blatant attempt at a political coup by an outgoing administration’s party. The people of this country have been trying to tell Dems it is time to go in a different direction, but they are not listening, not even to their own voters.
As Handwerk points out, they have lost 1,000 seats, since Obama’s first Inauguration, yet they play to the protesters, most of whom don’t even vote! They just like to burn things up and commit crimes, which they know they will not be punished for.
Obama’s Organizing for Action was put together for one purpose, treason, and far too many older Dems are buying into the idea that this is a great idea.
In all, there are an estimated 250 offices with over 30,000 active “soldiers” and up to as many as 50,000 more expected to complete training. They have no other purpose than to disrupt our government.
To see how far this divide goes within their party, consider how many senators up for reelection wanted Obama to appear with them on the trail. According to WND, just one person wanted him on the trail. So think about that. The most powerful campaign tool someone can have is a sitting president, and they didn’t want any part of him.
A senate candidate from Kentucky outright blasted the president. Alison Lundergran Grimes took out an ad to tell everyone she was against her own president, declaring, “I’m not Barack Obama. I disagree with him on guns, coal, and the EPA.”
We have the old school Democrats squaring off with the Democrats who actually have some scruples, and it is not pretty.
I said just a few weeks ago that the Democrat party better listen to the wake-up call America gave it soon or the party will be dead. This infighting is just a small sign of what we are going to see in the near future.
Most Americans, except for the extreme left, will not tolerate this kind of nonsense. Lest they forget, Trump was elected because the people of this country were fed up. Nothing was getting done in Washington, except for people’s pockets getting fatter.
Now, with this treasonous plot being carried out in the wide open, the Democrats are sending even more people to Trump’s camp. If they don’t wise up, conservatives will have every seat available and the Democrat party will be dead forever, which is fine by me!

RANKING DEM DEMANDS TRUMP’S LAW WILL NEVER PASS…GOP WAITS UNTIL HE LEAVES TO PASS BILL FREELY
Posted by Michael Kohl | Feb 7, 2017
Do as I say……
“Never is there a much more wretched hive of scum and villainy,”
There are really times when I cannot tell the difference between the United States Senate and the biggest dens of inequity in the real or imagined world. Usually the Senate reminds me of a Nursing Home for old millionaires trying to prove they still matter. However, every now and then they surprise me and do something noble or true.
This was one of those times. As a recap, the U.S. Senate has this mechanism that has existed for almost the entire life of the Senate called “filibuster.” The filibuster is used to prevent an item from being brought up for a vote. In an item called ‘cloture,’ it takes 60 Senators to do this. Something that can end up as a hard task. Usually as easy as herding cats.
Historically the tactic was used as a last resort tactic, something to slow down or prevent a bill that some felt harmful from going forward. It has saved our nation from disaster at times.
That was then, this is now.
These days the Senate uses it for whatever bill that a certain Senator doesn’t like or whenever he wants to make the news. Don’t like the nominee for a court, Filibuster a totally unrelated field. Don’t like the President and eyeing a run, read Green Eggs and Ham. In many cases you do not even have to be on the floor to filibuster, just tell the Senate Majority Leader you are planning to do so.
So now even the blowhards do not have to work as hard to make the lives of average Americans harder. After the complete breakdown of decorum and the idea of actually working for the American people for the last sixteen years, many had resigned themselves to another eight years of the Senate doing the same to President Trump.
However, even small miracles can happen.
Using emergency action to break a political standoff, Republicans on the Senate Committee on Finance Wednesday approved President Trump’s nominations of Steven Mnuchin as Treasury secretary and Rep. Tom Price as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
With a pair of 14-0 votes, Republicans sent the nominations to the Senate floor for expected final approvals with no Democrats present for the action.
The surprise outcome came after Democrats stalled Tuesday’s scheduled vote on the nominations by refusing to attend unless they got additional financial information from Mnuchin, a multi-millionaire hedge fund manager and movie industry financier, and Price, an orthopedic surgeon and GOP House member from Georgia.
Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who chairs the finance panel, characterized the Democratic protest as “pathetic” and said the emergency action was needed to fill important presidential cabinet vacancies.
Trump needs loyal Democratic Leaders to make America great again
“We took some unprecedented actions today due to the unprecedented obstruction on the part of our colleagues, Hatch said, referring to Democratic members of the panel.”I get that my colleagues think these nominees are controversial. I get that they don’t want to see them confirmed. We’ve all been in that situation. It comes part and parcel with the job of being a senator.”
The finance committee’s rules require a quorum — consisting of at least one member from the two major political parties — to conduct official business. However, the committee may opt to suspend any of its rules at any time, said Hatch. Republicans exercised that emergency option after checking with the Senate Parliamentarian Office to confirm the move complied with committee and Senate rules, he said.
“It’s deeply troubling to me that Republicans on the Finance Committee chose to break the rules in the face of strong evidence of two nominees’ serious ethical problems,” Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, the panel’s ranking Democrat, said in a statement after the action. He also said Hatch led a similar Republican boycott of a Senate finance committee hearing in 2011.
Before Wednesday’s emergency vote, Democratic members of the finance panel Hatch a letter outlining the financial data that prompted their walkout.
The letter said Mnuchin provided “inaccurate and misleading answers” to committee questions about a process known as Robo-signing when he testified at a Jan. 19 confirmation hearing held by the committee. The questions focused on what Democrats characterized as a potentially illegal effort to speed mortgage foreclosures by OneWest Bank, a California banking chain previously headed by Mnuchin.
Mnuchin also failed to provide OneWest foreclosure data, Democrats said.
Don’t get comfortable, you won’t be here long Chick
As I sit and watch the Senate talk and talk about the DeVos nomination, I wish that they would just vote already. On one hand I can applaud Democrats for doing this; on the other I am appalled that they are using a measure used to keep bad laws from the books for petty political gain.
Our Founders never intended it to be this way. They wanted a Senate with a backbone. The power of the President lies mortally hampered, and his ability to do his job lies in jeopardy when he does not have the appointed advisors he needs.
One of the primary duties of the Senate is advice and consent on important offices advising the President. Their solemn duty should not be used as a political football whether the President is Republican or Democratic. Delaying tactics only hurt this nation.
There should be a straight up or down vote on the Senate floor for all Presidential appointees. The idea that Elizabeth Warren or Ted Cruz can bring our government to a screeching halt for the most mundane of reasons scares and angers me to no end.
Currently America has no ambassadors to foreign nations, so Trump faces the problem of conducting the business of the nation abroad. The Supreme Court of the United States, a constitutionally vital branch of government is hampered so long as it is missing a Justice and scores of Federal Benches are vacant. How many trials are backed up for this nonsense?
Senator Schumer shoulders most of the blame. This talking head spent years blasting Republicans for this tactic. Now in the Minority, he uses it without a second thought. America needs better from him and the Democratic Leadership, Trump needs a loyal opposition, not a King Rat from New York (the Queen rat having lost in November).
In a straight up or down vote, the whole Senate MUST record their vote; and perhaps that is why deep down the Senate resorts to such tactics. Trump will have a hard time draining the swamp if the Senate refuses to go on the record. The Senate must act or we the people, left and right, must do our duty in 2018.
Folks are gonna say I hate women after reading this, BUT…
By Allen West
January 23, 2017
One of the great aspects of our Constitutional Republic is the right our citizens have to free speech and expression, to assemble and to petition our government for redress of grievances. It’s something that assuredly separates Western civilization and classical liberal democracies from all others. This is something we cherish, but these rights also come with an immense responsibility, and that is where I take issue.
I do not believe it’s peaceful to have some member of the entertainment elite speaking of conducting violence against the incoming president and the people’s residence, the White House.
As reported by CNN, “More than one million people marched through Washington, D.C., and other American cities Saturday to show support for women’s rights and express their discontent over the election of President Donald Trump.
The Women’s March drew members of Congress, world-famous actresses and countless citizens like Joanne Gascoyne of Albany, New York a 78-year-old retired teacher who traveled to New York City with her daughter and two granddaughters.
“I feel people are afraid to vote for a woman for president,” Gascoyne said. “I’m really here for women and to inspire my granddaughters to carry on.”
The protesters came out for a range of reasons, including immigration, health care and a general antipathy to Trump. But most said they wanted to show support for women and feared that there will be attacks on women’s rights during Trump’s presidency.
On the mall, filmmaker Michael Moore, feminist icon Gloria Steinem, musician Alicia Keys and other speakers emotionally attacked Trump for his views on immigration, Muslims and women. “It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f–k up,” Madonna told the crowd. “It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would win in the end.”First, let me say to Ms. Gascoyne, this nation is not “afraid” to elect a woman president. But why must we make the issue of someone being president based on their identity, color of skin, or gender…and not about their character?
Eight years ago we had to vote for Barack Obama because he was black, and nothing, and I mean no policy or principled argument could be made without being castigated as a racist, which permeates to this day. Ma’am, we need a good president. It’s not about breaking glass ceilings, this has to be about individuals who will restore our Constitutional Republic.
And Ms. Gascoyne, as a former teacher, you should be teaching your daughters and granddaughters what that means. Also, as a former teacher, ma’am, don’t you think it’s a very important women’s right for young mothers in inner city communities be able to have a choice for educating their children? I mean seriously, is the only women’s right, her only choice, is to choose to kill our future generations, and not be allowed to choose the education of our future generations?
And as a former teacher ma’am, perhaps you should be teaching people about the very racist rhetoric of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. It’s amazing to me that the left wants to demonize one Steve Bannon as a racist and a white supremacist, yet y’all celebrate the very person who created a movement to rid society of certain undesirables and was a very well known supporter of the Ku Klux Klan — an organization started by the Democrat party.
Where was Alicia Keys when Barack Obama cancelled the DC school voucher program for deserving young minority kids? Hmm, I suppose that’s not an important right for women to want the best possible education opportunity for their kids. Needless to say, there was no women’s march since after all, it was Obama, and he could do no wrong.
How many women marched in Chicago because of the incessant and needless shootings and murders of young black kids? Let’s be honest, there were over 700 killings in Chicago last year, far more than in the combat zones of Iraq and Afghanistan.
We have women who live in these areas held hostage to the violence and forced to live in fear because they don’t have the constitutional right to protect and defend themselves and their families.
Where was the women’s march for that right, such as the young black mother from Philadelphia who faced prison because she had a lawful carry permit that wasn’t accepted in New Jersey? She willfully declared the weapon to a police officer during a stop. She’s a single mother with two young children, and had been robbed previously…who is marching for her?
This is why the National Rifle Association will get national reciprocity passed in this year in order to ensure Americans, particularly American women, are not victims. And consider this, this women’s march was about immigration — where was the march for Kate Steinle? You know, the young San Francisco woman who was shot to death by a criminal illegal alien who had been deported countless times…and to think, it was the Senate Democrats who blocked legislation for mandatory sentencing of deported illegals who return and commit crimes against Americans. And it is Democrat mayors who stand in full support of “sanctuary cities” for criminal illegal aliens, all to the danger for law abiding Americans, women.
And then there is the idiotic statement from Madonna, “It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f–k up”. I must recommend she read Proverbs 17:28. What about the Obama-inspired darkness that has befallen the world known as the Islamic State? Where was Madonna’s angst and anger towards those savage barbaric Islamic jihadists who were taking little girls, raping them, and selling them as sex slaves, as was testified before Senate by a young Yazidi girl?
What about those girls who are victims of the practice of female genital mutilation and honor killings — some having even occurred here in America. Where was the women’s march for them? Where is the global feminist movement for women’s rights in the Muslim world, not to mention the fact that women are still stoned to death and hanged if they cannot come up with the archaic Islamic jurisprudence rule of three males to testify for them in a rape case.
I could go on with more cases and instances of hypocrisy but the point has been made. The women’s marches that came a day after the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump were not about women, it was all about the progressive socialist ideological agenda. The hypocrisy is just too blatant. There was no mention of the three female Jewish IDF Soldiers who were run over by an Islamic jihadist just two weeks ago.
These folks don’t care about rights, they care about power, and there is more to what women truly want than just killing babies. The election is over, and if you pay attention to the exit polls, Donald Trump received quite a bit of support from women, three in our household for starts.
And the West women were appalled at the women’s march and spoke to me Sunday morning as we headed to church about the abject hypocrisy. Women are suffering across the globe, and right here in America, but it’s because of the failure of the progressive socialist policies of the past eight years. And that’s why Hillary Clinton didn’t win. Get over it, and accept that truth. This march could have been focused on the real issues facing not just women, but all of America, it fell short and proved to be nothing more than a partisan political rally. And therefore, in the end, it had no credibility, regardless of what CNN and MSNBC portrayed.
Sadly, it all comes back to those two words that captures the left and all its faults, failures, and shortcomings. Y’all stink.
