Rush Limbaugh: ‘We Are on the Cusp of a Second Civil War’ (VIDEO)

Friday, on Rush Limbaugh’s nationwide radio show, he claimed that given the recent state of affairs in the U.S, the nation is ‘on the Cusp of a Second Civil War’.

Given the boiling political atmosphere following the Charlottesville incident, he may have a point.

Rush states that American culture and history are under siege as an integral part of an anti- American agenda led by the Left and international financiers like George Soros.

Limbaugh argues that learning and knowing American history, in this time of great political angst, is a crucial tool for preserving our nation’s greatness, hence why the Left is so determined to destroy it.

Partial transcript from Limbaugh’s show from RushLimbaugh.com:

America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.

I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.

Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us, in order to defend America, you have to begin knowing our history. If you’re gonna defend the United States of America, you have to know our history. You have to know the purpose of the United States of America. You have to know unequivocally and proudly the United States’ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed…”

Rush Limbaugh: “Antifa is rioters… Somebody wanted this to happen.”

Red Sox Want to Get Rid of Iconic Fenway Feature Due to Racist Past

Red Sox owner John Henry wants to rename Yawkey Way due to its supposedly racist past, following suit with the Left’s agenda to erase history. Yawkey Way is an iconic street outside of Fenway Park, named after the the allegedly racist Red Sox manager Tom Yawkey.

The far Left practice of tearing down historical monuments to erase history has been popular as of late, and has now spread to the Boston Red Sox.

Via the New York Post:

Henry told the Boston Herald he’s ready to lead the charge for renaming Yawkey Way, the famous street outside Fenway Park, as a renewed light is placed on monuments and their inspirations around the country.

“The Red Sox don’t control the naming or renaming of streets,” Henry told the newspaper. “But for me, personally, the street name has always been a consistent reminder that it is our job to ensure the Red Sox are not just multi-cultural, but stand for as many of the right things in our community as we can — particularly in our African-American community and in the Dominican community that has embraced us so fully. The Red Sox Foundation and other organizations the Sox created such as Home Base have accomplished a lot over the last 15 years, but I am still haunted by what went on here a long time before we arrived.”

Tom Yawkey owned the Red Sox from 1933-76. His franchise was the last in the league to welcome a black player to its roster, a full 12 years after Jackie Robinson first suited up for the Dodgers.

The Red Sox have been the subject of a more recent racial scandal. Orioles Adam Jones accused Red Sox fans of calling him a racial slur earlier this season, which reignited a heated debate about racism in the city of Boston.

Henry told the Herald he would be in favor of renaming the street to David Ortiz Way or Big Papi Way. Part of Yawkey Way was renamed David Ortiz Drive in June.

“We ought to be able to lead the effort and if others in the community favor a change, we would welcome it — particularly in light of the country’s current leadership stance with regard to intolerance,” Henry said.

The Yawkey Foundation responded to John Henry’s proposal by insisting that the family’s philanthropy not be associated with the alleged racism of Tom Yawkey. “Jean and Tom Yawkey’s philanthropy has always been color blind,”.

ESPN Apologizes for Holding Fantasy Football Auction that ‘Resembled a Slave Auction’ According to Some

A segment aired on ESPN Tuesday depicting a fantasy football auction using staged images of NFL football players. Many of the players happened to be black and most of the bidders happened to be white. This harmless coincidence led to people believing the auction resembled a slave auction. Yet another example of ultra-sensitive busy bodies desperately searching for something to be offended by.

Via Breitbart:

Leading some to say the scene resembled a slave auction. The network has since apologized for the segment, saying they understand how some could believe that the scene too closely resembled a slave auction.
In a statement to The Big Lead, ESPN said, “Auction drafts are a common part of fantasy football, and ESPN’s segments replicated an auction draft with a diverse slate of top professional football players. Without that context, we understand the optics could be portrayed as offensive, and we apologize.”

Super liberal ESPN can’t even keep up with what is considered offensive these days. Those who inserted a racial context into the harmless fantasy football sketch are race-baiting drama queens. One would have to be completely insane to compare fantasy football to slavery, yet ESPN took this seriously and were shamed into apologizing for it.

Via The Big Lead:

Would this sketch even be an issue if the auctioneer had chosen Tom Brady as the player to auction? Of course not. It was going to be a star and maybe we have a Giants fan making the call instead of a Patriots fan. It’s unlikely there was anything racial about the choice.

The more troublesome thing here is that the crowd was overwhelmingly white and no African-American men can be seen representing a group that they are part of–fantasy football and football fans. This group appears to be a group of ESPN employees likely drawn into the scene as “extras.” The exclusion, I would highly doubt, was anything approaching intentional. ESPN probably gets too much criticism for the diversity of its on-air talent. For this limited group of ESPN’ers, that diversity did not extend when they went on air. But that’s an issue far beyond this one skit.

Mao Would be Proud: Next on Liberal’s List for Destruction- Confederate Carvings at Stone Mountain Memorial

Following the recent destruction of various confederate monuments in the south, next on the liberal hit list appears to be the largest bas-relief in the world – the giant stone carvings of Confederate generals on the side of state-owned Stone Mountain.

Many far left thugs have zeroed in on the carvings as their next victim.

Via Breitbart:

This week, Democrat candidate for Gov. Stacey Abrams released a statement calling for the destruction of the 158-foot-long bas-relief first started in 1923, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The African American Democrat called the monument a “blight” on Georgia, and slammed the monument as having been funded by the KKK, despite that it was the state and federal governments that paid for most of its creation.

Abrams made her case in a series of Tweets posted on August 15:

 

 

Liberals have been making efforts to tear down the monument since the Charleston church shooting in summer of 2015.

 

Breitbart provided some of the monument’s history:

While lost cause supporters did organize to initiate the project back in 1915, their money ran out quickly, and their support stopped when only one figure was fairly begun. In fact, the project laid fallow for 36 years until the state and the federal government became involved in the late 1950s and floated the funds to finish the carvings.

The site was purchased by the state of Georgia in 1958, but the sculpture was still incomplete due to the two World Wars, funding problems, and numerous missed deadlines and disputes. It was not completed until 1972. Indeed, in 1960 when the state purchased the property, the agreement that allowed the Klan to meet on the grounds in perpetuity was canceled by the state.

Abram’s idea spread to state socialist group Metro Atlanta DSA who sympathize with her hostile rhetoric.

 

Even North Carolina’s governor agreed with sentiments to remove the monument, claiming “These monuments should come down.”

#NeverTrumper Rick Wilson: I Like My Fascists the Old Fashioned Way, Dead and Hanging from Lamp Posts

Outspoken #NeverTrumper and columnist for the Daily Beast Rick Wilson declared his support for lynching fascists following the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Wilson claims President Trump has “an itchy Twitter finger”, though he shouldn’t be one to talk. Wilson’s twitter resume is comprised of nasty messages for Trump supporters and inappropriate sexual remarks towards Ann Coulter. 

Original story via Breitbart:

Wilson remained very vague as to who he considers to be a “fascist” in his tweet. This was not the first time the Never Trumper has branded the supporters of President Trump with the charged term.

 

 

 

In 2013 Wilson used the term “fascist” to describe the Obama “Youth Corps”:

 

Mr. Wilson seems to have a broad definition for who he deems to be a fascist. According to his questionable tweet he is sanctioning violence against a large group of people on the bases of political disagreement.

Additionally, in 2015 Wilson encouraged establishment Republican donors to “go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump.” Not to mention tweeting disgusting remarks towards Ann Coulter:

Author Stephen King Attacks President Trump, Claiming He “Needs to Be Removed”

Horror author Stephen King (author of Dark Tower) tweeted spitefully toward President Trump, claiming that he is unfit for office and must be removed. “Donald Trump is unfit for office. Needs to be removed,”

(Original story from Breitbart):

This isn’t the first time the writer from Maine has expressed his distaste for the President.

 

It’s hard to tell what is more deranged, the horrible creatures in Mr. King’s stories, or King’s faith in the MSM. Stephen King has been one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics from the literary community. In May of 2016, the King signed on to an open letter along with more than 300 other writers, including Dave Eggers, Cheryl Strayed and Michael Chabon, attacking Trump’s candidacy for president.

“I think that he’s sort of the last stand of a sort of American male who feels like women have gotten out of their place and they’re letting in all these people that have the wrong skin colors. He speaks to those people,” said King. Mr. King proved he was truly a liberal degenerate by stating: Trump appealed to people who “would like to have a world where you just didn’t question that the white American was at the top of the pecking order.”

Feminist Grinnell College Professor Offering Course on “American Whiteness”

A Grinnell College Professor will be offering a course on “American Whiteness” that will focus on “attacking racism by making whiteness visible.” Liberal looney toon Professor Karla Erickson is a self described “feminist ethnographer”, and will be teaching the discriminatory course that will explore “whiteness as a specific racial formation with a distinct history, proactive and defensive politics, and institutional and personal investments.”

Campus Reform reported on the blatantly racist course:

According to the course description, students will learn about the “historical expansion” of whiteness while discussing both the “formal and informal advantages that accrue to whiteness” and potential “challenges to whiteness.”

Although Erickson declined to provide a copy of the current syllabus, Campus Reform located a syllabus for a previous iteration of the course from the spring of 2015, which contains a course description identical to the one of that being offered in the fall.

“Whiteness is, among much else, a very bad idea,” the syllabus states, quoting Kansas University Professor David Roediger. “It is quite possible to avoid hating white people as individuals but to criticize the ‘idea of white people in general.’”

The 2015 version of the class featured text such as “Beyond the Whiteness of Whiteness” and “The Case for Reparations,”. The 2015 version of the syllabus also states: “This course is meant to facilitate a personal journey towards a better understanding of how whiteness functions in a racist nation, therefore sincere attempts at working through whiteness will be rewarded,”

Professor Erickson has offered many presentations attacking white people in America, with titles like: “Whiteness in the Liberal Arts,” “Whiteness and Mentoring,” and “Whiteness in the Era of Black Lives Matter,” according to her curriculum vitae.

Oregon State University Now Offers “Fat Studies” Courses that Claim “Weightism” is a Civil Rights Issue

Oregon State University is now offering “fat studies” courses to students. The courses regard the concept of “weightism” and “fatphobia” as a hot-button civil rights issue. The courses further examine how body weight, shape, and size play key roles in societal privilege and discrimination.

Details on the new courses via Breitbart:

The course will be taught by instructor Patti Lou Watkins, who penned an articlein European Health Psychologist, which argued that humans can be healthy at any body weight, an endorsement of the widely-panned “Health At Any Size” movement. Body size isn’t a good indicator of health, she argues. To Watkins, even individuals who can be classified as morbidly obese could be healthy.

Watkins also dismissed the effectiveness in dieting. “The validity of HAES is supported by research over the past decade that reveals the continued ineffectiveness of dieting interventions targeting weight loss along with the potential for harm associated with these strategies,” she writes. Surely, thousands of Americans who have lost weight and lowered their risk for certain medical conditions beg to differ with Watkin’s argument.

“I grew to embrace feminist pedagogy in terms of course content as well as classroom practices,” Watkins explains. “My course now frames body image disturbances more as a function of oppressive societal structures than of individual pathology.”

A separate course from Wakins’ entitled “Women, Weight, and Body Image,” examines “weightism” from the intersectionality perspective. This is suppose to mean that women who suffer from being overweight as well as being part of another minority group (black, trans, LGBTQ, etc) allegedly suffer from compounded discrimination.

This is a prime example of the downward spiral of the social justice movement. Once derived from the reasonable and powerful civil rights movement of the 20th century, it has now taken on an ugly form of its own, being used to make half baked excuses for the lazy, deviant, and self interested losers on the Left.

 

An odd and baffling discussion on “fatphobia”:

New Effort to Broaden the Democrat Party’s Base Will Support Pro-Life Candidates

Despite recent efforts from progressive activists to exclude pro-lifers from joining the Democrat base, a new campaign was launched on Tuesday by Democrats to do just that. The New Democracy campaign is being described as “a base-broadening initiative aimed at expanding the party’s appeal geographically and demographically.” 

The New Democracy campaign was announced on Tuesday with the support of 30 Democrat party leaders including Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, and former Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

The initiative is bound to upset some of the more fanatical sects of the Democrat party, especially feminist and “pro-choice” supporters on account of the party extending an olive branch to the enemies of legal abortion and Planned Parenthood, two staples of far Left ideology.

Via the Washington Examiner:

The group’s mission statement seeks to extend the party’s reach to “moderates, independents, and disaffected Republicans” and underscores its intentions of supporting “pragmatic candidates who can compete and win in suburban, small town, and rural places.”

The press release also listed “decentralizing power to more effective and trusted local governments” among its four top priorities.

But the group’s announcement came as progressive Democrats hammered party leaders from Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for refusing to exclude pro-life Democrats from the party. Prominent feminists argued last week that it was impossible to have gender equality in a country without access to legal abortion services, urging the party to close its doors to opponents of the practice.

When asked by the Washington Examiner whether New Democracy will support pro-life candidates, spokesman Cody Tucker replied, “This effort is about making the party a big tent party, and we will support candidates who reflect the states, districts, and regions they represent. That may include pro-life candidates at times.”

Transgender Summer Camp Offers Programs for Children as Young as FOUR Years Old

Rainbow Day Camp is a summer camp for transgender and “gender fluid” children that is accepting children as young as four years old, and unfortunately enrollment is booming.

Here is the story of one of the camp’s very young participants:

Via Fox News:

On a sunny July morning at camp, the theme was “Crazy Hair Day,” and 6-year-old Gracie Maxwell was dancing in the sunshine as a Miley Cyrus song blasted from outdoor speakers. The freckled, blue-eyed blonde wore her hair in a braid on one side, a pigtail on the other and snacked on cereal as she twirled and skipped.

“Once she could talk, I don’t remember a time when she didn’t say, ‘I’m a girl,'” said her mother, Molly Maxwell, who still trips over pronouns but tries to stick to “she.”

“Then it grew in intensity: ‘I’m a sister. I’m a daughter. I’m a princess,'” Maxwell said. “We would argue with her. She was confused. We were confused.”

Living in the liberal-minded Bay Area made it easier. The Maxwells found a transgender play group, sought specialists, and at 4 years old, let Gracie grow her hair, dress as a girl and eventually change her name.

Apparently gender specialists say that the growing number of children coming out as “gender fluid” or transgender at young ages may be accredited to the larger awareness of LGBT issues among parents these days. Parents being educated on these issues along with a very liberal mindset may allow kids to find their “true identities” without friction from traditional attitudes.

On the other hand:

An article by three medical experts published in June called “Growing Pains: Problems with Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria” calls into question some underlying assumptions on this topic.

In their article, the authors write that transgender-affirming treatments of children “may drive some children to persist in identifying as transgender when they might otherwise have, as they grow older, found their gender to be aligned with their sex.”

These experts are concerned about the possibility that “the interference with normal pubertal development will influence the gender identity of the child by reducing the prospects for developing a gender identity corresponding to his or her biological sex.”

Many opponents to the transgender agenda would go as far to say that this is indoctrination and even a form of child abuse, perhaps with good reason. Considering the trans suicide rate (at near 40%), and dozens of other life challenges trans people experience, could anyone blame a parent for wanting to exhaust all other options before casting their child down a road of life long identity and sexual confusion? The Rainbow Day Camp is the antithesis of that sentiment, hurrying the child into making severe and permanent decisions about their life before they reach a double digit age.

Still, camp founder Sandra Collins says at some point, Rainbow Day Camp won’t be seen as innovative. Collins’ experience as the mother of a transgender girl, now 9, inspired her to start the camp, and another for 13- to 17-year-olds called Camp Kickin’ It.

“A lot of these kids have been bullied and had trauma at school. This is a world where none of that exists, and they’re in the majority,” Collins said. “That’s a new experience for kids who are used to hiding and feeling small.”

Liberal Hacks Trash Bruce Willis Remake of ‘Death Wish’: “Alt- Right Inspired”, “Racist” and “Most Tone Deaf Film of Year”

Eli Roth’s remake of “Death Wish” starring Bruce Willis is causing considerable backlash from liberals due to it’s pro-gun and anti-thug motifs. Critics are calling it the “most tone deaf film of the year” as well as racist and alt-right inspired.

(Original story from the Daily Mail)

The ultra dark and hyper-violent tone of the trailer has Willis’ character Paul Kersey,  whose family is shattered when his wife killed and his daughter viciously raped and paralyzed after a home burglary. 

He takes his revenge to the streets with an enormous arsenal of weapons. Movie critics and social media users commented on the tone deaf film. ‘Pretty sure the NRA just found their next ad,’ wrote one Twitter user.

‘Death Wish shouldn’t promote such behavior. In real life, a delusional racist with a gun might believe they’re a heroic vigilante.’ said another user.

The film portrays a white man, who’s wife was murdered and daughter raped by Chicago street thugs, taking the law into his own hands to find those responsible. Along the way he stops robberies, carjackings, and saves people’s lives by cleaning up the streets as a vigilante.

Liberal critics and social justice nuts are making this action packed thriller about race and gun control:

 

It triggered film critic Alan Zilberman:

 

Author Chuck Wendig’s take:

The movie’s trailer depict white men as the burglars who raped and killed the protagonist’s family, while also showing Bruce Willis save a young black boy and a black woman from the filth of Chicago. In what way is this movie racist exactly? Maybe these sensitive liberal film critics just hate to see a white guy kick some ass, never mind their fear and hatred of guns.

U.S Navy Vet Ordered to Remove American Flag from His Mailbox by Liberal Bullies

Retired U.S. Navy Officer John Ackert says he received a letter from the Southwood Residential Community Associate in Tallahassee telling him to remove the American flag wrapping on his mailbox or face penalties. He told WCTV that he is not backing down without a fight.

Navy veteran John Ackert feels that he is being treated very unfairly: “I view this as a form of bullying to be honest,” Ackert said. “And I think people should stand up to bullying of any form, and particularly this.”

The letter he received from his residential community read: “As the holiday season comes to a close, please remove the American flag mailbox wrap,… Decoration may be displayed 30 days prior and must be taken down 15 days after.”

 

Via Fox News:

Some of Ackert’s neighbors told WCTV the letter was a bit harsh and said they were not entirely surprised by the H.O.A’s actions.

“They do things like this all the time,” Mike Stephenson said. “I think it’s ridiculous. What’s wrong with being patriotic in the country you live in?”

Mike Patel said: “The man’s a veteran, he served the country. It’s just a mailbox with a flag. I don’t think it’s right. He owns the house, he can at least have that.”

The H.O.A. letter says Ackert has 15 days to remove the wrap or face a fine. He has not received a response to his appeal.

Jill Stein Defends North Korea’s Pursuit of Nuclear Weapons, Blames America (VIDEO)

The former Green Party candidate who forced a 2016 election recount in Michigan is now justifying the pursuit of nuclear weapons by the most insane country in the world.

Jill Stein made a case for North Korea’s militarization attempts as a response to Western aggression, in a recent appearance on MSNBC. She diminished the state of oppression and tyranny in N. Korea as nothing more than Western demonization tactics and propaganda that would eventually lead to desired regime change. 

Via Conservative Review:

“The demonization of North Korea is part of the run-up to regime change. We saw it in Iraq, we saw it in Libya; it’s part of demonizing a government that we then want to exercise regime change on,” Stein said.

MSNBC host Alex Witt tried to push back against the crazy, noting that it’s North Korea that is provoking the world by launching intercontinental ballistic missiles. Stein refuted, making the incredible claim that North Korea Is pursuing nuclear weapons in response to U.S. aggression.

“But remember where that came from. Long before they began their missile test, the U.S. was conducting nuclear bombing runs against North Korea. We actually had nuclear weapons until the end of the Cold War […] stationed in South Korea.”

Jill Stein is grasping at straws, trying to make the psychotic aggression of N. Korea seem like America’s fault. Stein’s conspiracy theories and blatant anti-American rhetoric begs the question: how someone with such disdain for the United States could have ever run for president. Stein’s defense of the least free country on earth says a lot about her values and shows her fanatical affinity for Marxism.

“So this is very frightening to them. They’ve been basically cornered into feeling like they have to develop a nuclear weapon,” said this woman who wants to be president of the United States.

It’s hard to tell who is crazier, Jill Stein or North Korea.

John Podesta: Social Media Companies Should Police Fake News

The former failed campaign manager for Hillary Clinton recently urged social media companies to censor “fake news”. 

“I think that again the social media companies have a responsibility to try to do a better job of knocking off fake sites and be able to police to some extent the propagation of fake news,” Podesta said on a far Left podcast

Via Breitbart:

Podesta said that the propagation of “fake news” was a national security threat, complaining that “Russian bots and trolls” helped spread negative stories about Hillary Clinton across the Internet.

He complained that “alt-right sites” on the internet were “peddling” the worst kind of fake news online.

But he admitted that it might be impossible to fully police content on social media, a “problem” that would have to fought within the American democracy.

“You can’t just ignore it … you have to deal with it and come to terms with it,” he said, offering advice for future Democratic candidates.

Control freaks like Podesta will always be the enemy of free speech and press. He then went on to make excuses for the presidential campaign blunder, saying that the Hillary campaign didn’t utilize social media outlets as effectively as President Trump’s did: “I think in our campaign we didn’t do enough persuasion through social media channels, I think we relied overwhelmingly on television for persuasion and used social media largely to talk to our own supporters and activists.”

Essentially, Podesta regrets that he didn’t spread enough fake news himself to win Hillary Clinton the White House, and is now lashing out by projecting his failures onto Republicans and Real News websites.

Whoopi Goldberg Calls out BLM Nut Meckesson who was Offended by Blue Vest Seen in Latest Planet of Apes Movie

Black Lives Matter fanatic DeRay Mckesson took personal offense to the blue vest that were worn by the apes in the new movie ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’.

Mckesson frequently wears a similar blue vest while protesting in the picket lines of Black Lives Matter protests and riots. So he assumed that the appearance of the blue vest in the movie was a way of calling him an ape.
Seriously?

(Original article: euroweb)

DeRay Mckesson’s tweets have since been deleted, though read as follows:

Mckesson claims that the producers of the beloved scifi thriller personally mocked him by dressing apes in the movie in blue vest, despite the fact that the original movie from 1968 used the same blue vest as a uniform for the apes.

 

Even Left- wing hack Whoopi Goldberg called Mckesson out on his narcissistic and childish claims. Other women on The View initially tried to defend Mckesson’s over-sensitivity until Whoopi shut them down:

VIDEO: San Diego Teacher Deems Citizenship Question from Authorities to be Racist, Refuses to Answer

A middle school teacher from San Diego refused to answer a question from a border patrol agent regarding her citizenship because she saw it as racist.

The entire incident was recorded by her family member and has since gone viral. The teacher stated that “enforcing racist laws perpetuates institutional racism.”

(Story from Breitbart)

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Shane Parmely was driving in New Mexico when she was stopped at a border patrol check point by an officer of the law. The following then transpired:

“Citizens?” an agent asked her as she drove up to the checkpoint.

“Are we crossing a border?” Parmely responded.

“No. Are you United States citizens?” he repeated.

“Are we crossing a border?” Parmely repeated. “I’ve never been asked if I’m a citizen before when I’m traveling down the road.”

As the agent continued to repeat his question, Parmely told him that he could ask her the question, but she didn’t have to answer.

“You are required to answer an immigration question,” the agent said. “You are not required to answer any other questions.”

When Parmely refused to answer the question, the agent told her that she was being detained for an immigration inspection.

“So if I just come through and say, ‘Yes, I’m a citizen,’ I can just go ahead?” Parmely asked.

“If the agent is justified by the answer, then yes,” the agent responded.

“So if I have an accent, and I’m brown, can I just say, ‘Yes,’ and go ahead or do I have to prove it?” she asked. “I have a bunch of teacher friends who are sick of their kids being discriminated against.”

“OK, I’m not discriminating against anybody,” the agent said.

New guidelines have been issued on the Planned Parenthood website containing detailed methods for talking to preschoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, transgenderism, and even ways of determining whether your child is trans or not. 

The federally funded corporation, Planned Parenthood, is now offering advice to parents on how to approach sexual and gender identity topics with toddlers and preschoolers. When they’re not killing unborn babies with tax dollars, they have to at least make sure your kids grow up to be ill-adjusted, gender confused, and hyper-sexual.

Via the Daily Wire:

Filling the head of your three-year-old child who thought he was a dinosaur last week with confusing messages about sex and gender?

What could possibly go wrong.

Under a section concerning pre-schoolers, the following hyperlinked questions are addressed: 

How do I talk with my preschooler about their body?

How do I talk with my preschooler about identity?

What should I teach my preschooler about healthy social skills and relationships?

How do I talk with my preschooler about personal safety?

What should I teach my preschooler about pregnancy and reproduction?

What should I teach my preschooler about sex and sexuality?

Perhaps most disturbing of all is the section discussing gender nonconforming identities. The life long psychological repercussions for a child who was mislabeled trans as a toddler could be extremely severe.

Planned Parenthood even informs parents how to tell if their pre-schooler is trans or gender nonconforming:

So how do you know if your kid is trying to tell you that they’re transgender or gender nonconforming, rather than just playing around?

Experts say that transgender kids tell you what their gender identity is in a way that’s very definitive. Trans and gender nonconforming kids are:

Consistent: They don’t go back and forth about their gender — they clearly identify with one particular gender identity.

Insistent: They feel very strongly about their identity, and get upset when they’re told that they’re not the gender they say they are.

Persistent: How they identity themselves stays over time.

The site recommends you take your child to a “counselor or therapist who’s familiar and supportive of LGBTQ identities” if you think they are trans.

Targeting children with the left’s gender mixing agenda and hyper-sexual rhetoric is absolutely abhorrent and disgusting. Other portions of the guidelines discuss child masturbation, and are equally disconcerting. Why would children this young have reason to concern themselves with these mature topics that, if approached the wrong way, could stifle development?

You can teach them that touching their genitals is something that’s not appropriate to do in public. Preschoolers are old enough to understand privacy. So instead of trying to convince them to stop touching themselves, have a conversation about boundaries. You can say something like, “I know that feels good, and it’s OK to do that in your room or the bathroom. It’s not ok to touch your penis in front of other people. It’s something that’s private.”

OUTRAGEOUS=> Transgender Surgeries Would Cost Pentagon $1.3 Billion

With President Trump’s recent military transgender ban causing widespread liberal outrage, it is imperative to examine the real fiscal cost of trans enlistment into the armed forces. According to the Washington Free Beacon, over the next 10 years, tax- funded transgender surgeries would cost $1.3 billion.

It is astounding how many put the “social justice” agenda before the burden of this nation’s hardworking taxpayers as well as the functional needs of the military. Each transgender surgery cost approximately $132,000. That expense multiplied by the .7% of the U.S military population that identifies as transgender, and would potentially need gender identity related medical treatment, generates a hefty financial cost.

Congresswomen Vicky Hartzler is a strong opponent of taxpayer funded sex changes, who provided detailed calculations showing the estimated number of services members seeking gender reassignment surgeries.

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

The 2014 Williams Institute study found there were 15,500 transgender individuals actively serving, or 0.7 percent of the military population. By adjusting the figure for the enlistment numbers of 2,130,000, there are currently 14,910 transgender service members.

Thirty percent will likely seek surgeries, or 4,473 transgender troops. The average cost per surgery is $132,000, which is a combination of the average cost of male to female ($140,450) and female to male ($124,400) surgeries.

The cost to taxpayers for these surgeries would be $590 million, and $770 million with a 3 percent inflation rate by 2027.

Hartzler’s office calculated the additional costs of surgeries for new transgender recruits every year.

There are 178,000 new military members per year, and assuming 0.7 percent are transgender, 1,246 new transgender service members each year. Assuming 30 percent get surgeries, there would be an additional 374 surgical transitions per year, or 3,740 over 10 years. Those surgeries would cost $493 million, and with 3 percent inflation a total of $579 million by 2027.

The costs of active duty transgender surgeries and those of new recruits over a 10-year period total $1.349 billion.

According to the National transgender Discrimination Survey, 30% of transgender individuals say they want to have various sex reassignment operations in the future. It is silly to think that service members would be excluded in the implication of this statistic.

Continued commentary from Congresswomen Vicky Hartzler:

“Our military is the most effective, efficient, and well-funded fighting force in the world, and as the president notes, we cannot burden our armed forces with the tremendous costs and disruptions that transgenders in the military would entail,” she said. “With the challenges we are facing across the globe, we are asking the American people to invest their hard-earned money in national defense.”

“Each dollar needs to be spent to address threats facing our nation,” “The costs incurred by funding transgender surgeries and the required additional care it demands should not be the focus of our military resources.”

Like a True Socialist: Bernie Sanders is Allegedly Stealing ‘The Washington Post’ from His Neighbor

According to WMAL radio host Chris Plante, Senator Bernie Sanders has been stealing editions of the ‘Washington Post’ from his neighbor. Clearly the washed-up socialist has no principles. 

(Original article from the Daily Wire.)

According to Chris Plante, a man living next to the 75-year-old socialist Senator called the Washington Post angrily threatening to cancel his subscription because he hardly ever receives his copy of the publication. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that his neighbor, Bernie Sanders, had been stealing the Post directly from his mailbox. Perhaps the Senator just considered this “redistribution”.

Here is Chris Plante’s story via Red State

Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane when they are in Washington DC, live in this house on Capitol Hill, ok? Part of their vast real estate empire. They’re like wannabe Trumps with their real estate holdings.

The next-door neighbor…their neighbor on Capitol Hill called the Washington Post and told the Washington Post that they were cancelling their Washington Post subscription because their very expensive Sunday Post stopped showing up. Not there this week, last week, the week before, then it was there one week but the week before it wasn’t delivered, so I’m cancelling my subscription to the post because your delivery person never gets to me. I’m paying for it but it never gets to me.

The Washington Post said, “Please, do not cancel your subscription to the Washington Post. We will investigate with the delivery person and we will get back to you.”

So the Post investigated. They got back to the person cancelling their subscription to the Post and they said, “Listen, we talked to the delivery person. Our delivery person claims has seen you come out of your house again and again and grab the paper on Sunday mornings. Immediately as the paper delivery person delivers the paper, they’ve seen you come out of your house and pick up the newspaper. So, sir, you are lying to us.”

[The neighbor] said, “Oh, ok, I’ve been coming out and picking up the paper?”

“Yes, and we got a description from the delivery person. You are an older man with gray hair, balding, and little round glasses…”

And the guy said, “I’m like, you know, in my 50s and I’ve got a full head of dark hair. But, my neighbor is Bernie Sanders.”

And Bernie Sanders has been coming out every  Sunday morning and stealing his next door neighbor’s Washington Post.

Comments concerning senator Sanders’ alleged thieving at the 1:12 mark.

UC Berkeley Adds Laser Hair Removal to Student Health Plan for Transgender Students

Starting August 1st, the UC Berkeley student health insurance program will be adding laser hair removal as a covered item under the list of “transgender student services”.

The new service will be added to the list of already existing services that accommodate transgender students, including “gender reassignment surgery,” “breast augmentation (MTF top surgery),” “female to male top surgery,” “hormone therapy,” etc.

The cosmetic needs of transgender students at UC Berkeley are being accommodated for by the newly proposed student healthcare plan. The plan is supposed to be installed on August 1st, 2017.

Via Campus Reform:

The University of California, Berkeley will soon add “laser hair removal” and “fertility preservation” to the list of “transgender student services” covered by its student health insurance plan.

According to The Daily Californian, the two new services will be officially added on August 1, complementing existing services for transgender students that are already covered, including “gender confirmation (reassignment) surgery,” “breast augmentation (MTF top surgery),” “female to male top surgery,” “hormone therapy,” and more.

Bahar Navab, who manages the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) for University Health Services, explained that fertility damage is a common side-effect of the hormones that some transgender individuals take, and that fertility preservation treatments enable those individuals to become pregnant or produce sperm without having to stop taking the hormones.

Navab also pointed out that most health insurance plans do not cover services such as “male-to-female top surgery” and hair removal because they consider them cosmetic procedures, whereas Berkeley’s plan views them as treatments for “gender dysphoria,” though they will also be offered to student with other medical necessities.

Recently elected student senator, Juniperangelica Cordova, told the Daily Cal that while she thinks the university has done “a good job” thus far with accommodating the needs of transgender students like herself, she plans to work with the Tang Center (university’s medical office) to do more.

“It’s a matter of making sure that everyone who works at Tang is up-to-date in terms of using our names and our pronouns,” she said. “I’m excited to see new procedures and new coverage being added and I’m looking forward to working with Tang this year in making sure trans folks are healthy.”

The updated healthcare plan allows transgender students to pay as little as 10% of the cost of most transgender services including “top surgery,” “bottom surgery,” and hormone therapy. Many in Berkeley’s SJW legions consider these healthcare inclusions a progressive win, all the while their tuition bills get hiked up even higher.

Radical LGBT Activists Mock Christians for Using Rainbow Lights on Massive Noah’s Ark Kentucky Attraction

The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky features a 1:1 replica of Noah’s Ark as the centerpiece for a Biblical theme park. The founder of the park, Ken Ham, plans to illuminate the ark at night with rainbow lights as a symbol of God’s covenant with man to never use a flood to destroy all of humanity again.

LGBT activist and critics of his project are attacking him for using the rainbow symbolism outside of the context of the LGBT agenda. Other critics of the project such as atheist, including Bill Nye, have taken grievance will the project as well as mocked the religious beliefs of the creator, Ken Ham.

From Todd Starnes on the LGBT community’s grievances with the project:

The 500-foot-long ark is the centerpiece of the biblical theme park based in Williamstown, Kentucky. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have toured the replica of Noah’s Ark.

“The Ark is lit permanently at night with a rainbow to remind the world that God owns it and He decreed it’s a sign of His covenant with man after the Flood—Christians need to take back the rainbow as we do at the Ark Encounter,” Ham said. 

Critics denounced the decision — accusing him of stealing the rainbow colors from the LGBT community. 

“This is Ken Ham’s sad attempt to take back the rainbow symbol from the LGBTQ community,” read a headline in the Orlando Weekly. 

“It makes the ark look incredibly gay,” Kentucky Fairness Campaign’s Chris Hartman told USA Today. 

In 2016 Ham urged Christians to reclaim the rainbow and teach young people its true meaning. 

“The rainbow itself wasn’t designed to be a symbol of freedom, love, pride or the LGBTQ movement. God created this beautiful, colorful phenomenon and designated it as a sign of His covenant with Noah and his descendants forever.”

“Sadly, people ignore what God intended the rainbow to represent and proudly wave rainbow-colored flags in defiance of God’s command and design for marriage. Because of this, many Christians shy away from using the rainbow colors. But the rainbow was a symbol of God’s promises before the LGBTQ movement—and will continue to be after that movement has ended. As Christians, we need to take the rainbow back and teach our young people its true meaning.”

Earlier this year, TV personality and pseudo scientist Bill Nye visited the Ark Encounter and participated in an all out debate with the project creator Ken Ham as they toured the exhibits. Mr. Nye challenged the fundamentalist Christian beliefs of Ken Ham as well as his climate change skepticism, to which Mr. Ham respectfully defended his personal beliefs. Would Bill Nye have challenged the beliefs of a Muslim who might have been working on a similar project?

For that matter, whether Mr. Ham’s fundamentalist beliefs are ridiculous or unscientific is besides the point here. It is unnerving to see the determination of those in “progressive” causes to attack Christians in ways they would never attack other religions.

 

Some of the protesters of the Ark Encounter were upset that the project was granted tax incentives from the state of Kentucky on account of the tourism it is predicted to bring in, and saw this as a violation of separate church and state. Despite the tourism based tax incentives, the theme park thus far has been entirely built with private dollars and donations, according to the park builders.

Professor Who Flipped Off Trump Tower to Host Lecture on “Navigating Hate and Xenophobia in Modern America”

Trinity College professor, Simran Jeet Singh, who tweeted a photo of himself making obscene gestures in front of Trump Tower, is scheduled to lecture on “navigating hate and xenophobia in modern America.” Makes sense.

Since the election, Singh has written several aggressive and hateful tweets towards the President as well as his supporters including one telling President Trump to “kiss all of our asses.” referring to “our Muslim sisters and brothers.” 

From Campus Reform regarding the lecture event:

According to the event description posted on social media, assistant professor of religion Simran Jeet Singh will speak at the webinar hosted by the Trinity University Alumni Association on August 3, having been selected based on his “role as a leader in the national conversation on Islamophobia, racial profiling, and hate violence.”

It’s Funny how Prof. Singh is being considered an authority on hate and profiling, considering the content and tone of some of his social media posts:

Jonah Wendt, the vice chair of the Texas Federation of College Republicans and editor in chief of a conservative student newspaper on campus, The Wendt, said that while he does not question “Dr. Singh’s ability to lecture on the topic,” he does find the scheduled webinar ironic.

“The irony of a professor, who [on Election Day] posted a picture flipping double middle fingers outside of Trump Tower, should not be lost on viewers of his lecture on ‘Navigating Hate and Xenophobia in Modern America,’” he said in a statement to Campus Reform.

Prof. Singh preaches inclusion, diversity, tolerance, and respect unless of course you voted for President Trump. If you are a Trump supporter, he is happy to flip you off and claim that you “tacitly condone racism”. “Lets be clear”, liberals are only against hate and in favor of diversity so long as you agree with their rhetoric.

Video: Liberal Students Love Socialism But Can’t Define it

College students love socialism, just look at how Bernie Sanders captivated the youth vote during the Democrat Primaries. However, if you were to ask them to define it, you might not be able to get a straight answer. 

 

 

Campus Reform visited Washington D.C to ask college students “Do you like socialism?” and then asked “What is socialism?” Many students expressed favor for socialism, though when they were asked what it was, had trouble articulating an answer. If these kids can’t even define socialism, you can hardly expect them to recall the tens of millions who have been slaughtered under socialist and Marxist regimes throughout the 20th century. Hopefully they get a chance to take Econ 101 next semester.

Via Campus Reform:

Last year, a poll was released showing 53 percent of Americans under age 35 are dissatisfied with our nation’s current economic system and think socialism would be good for the country.

“I guess just, you know, getting rid of that wealth gap in the United States?”   

The same poll found that 45 percent of young Americans would be willing to support an openly socialist Presidential candidate.

The findings of this poll coincide with the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed “Democratic Socialist” from Vermont who received millions of votes in the 2016 Democratic Primary, many of them from millennials.

While it’s clear that young people increasingly view socialism in a positive light, it’s also clear that many of them are uneducated about what it entails, or the impact it’s had throughout history.

The same poll found many millennials are unfamiliar with historical figures often associated with socialism, such as Che Guevara, Joseph Stalin, and Karl Marx.

Swedish “Man- Free” Music Festival Wont Stop Sexual Assault in Sweden

Swedish comedian, Emma Knyckare plans on hosting a “man-free” music festival in her home town in response to the rapidly growing rates of sexual assaults in Sweden.

Despite the fact that this completely ignores the fact that Muslim refugees are almost exclusively responsible for Sweden’s growing rape crisis, it is also a clear form of sexual segregation and discrimination. Instead of admitting the failures of multiculturalism, Ms. Knyckare is really only interested in promoting the agenda of radical feminism.  

From the Rebel Media:

When it comes to the rape crisis, Emma Knyckare is among the progressive Swedish who never admit immigrants can do wrong. To the left, it must be the fault of men, white people, or Christians somehow. She is part of the trendy hive mind of social justice fanatics that are in fact committing suicide by political correctness along with the rest of their country.

The tweet roughly translates as “What do you think about putting together an asfet festival where only non-men are welcome as we drive (that would take place) until all men have learned how to behave?”

Other than the political and cultural delusions, Ms. Knyckare seems like a class act.

Turkish Coup Anniversary Speech Challenges the West “What Kind of Freedom Is This?”

As Turkey prepares to observe the anniversary of the failed Erdogan Coup, the Turkish president had a striking message for the U.S and Europe.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the West of failing to uphold its principles of freedom by not sufficiently supporting his administrations’ propaganda. “When it comes to it, they talk about freedoms. What kind of freedom is this?”

Via Breitbart:

The Turkish government attempted to organize July 15 commemoration events in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands, all of which banned such events. The United States turned down an advertising buy from the Turkish government to place posters celebrating Erdogan on the occasion in the Washington, DC, metro. The U.S. embassy in Ankara has also warned American citizens to avoid coup commemoration events, as Turkish state-friendly media have promoted a conspiracy theory that the United States organized the failed coup, and American citizens may face violence at emotionally charged commemoration events.

Despite the warning, American Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued a statement this week commemorating “the Turkish people – brave men and women – [who] stood up against coup plotters and defended their democracy.” “I take this moment to recognize their courage and honor the victims of the events of July 15, 2016,” he said.”

The statement apparently wasn’t enough for Erdogan, as he responded in front of an audience on Thursday claiming that Turkey upholds personal freedoms better than America and Europe do.

“We see the U.S. does not allow July 15 posters displayed on subways. We see similar things in Europe. We went to the G20 summit and wanted to meet our citizens in hall meetings. The applications were submitted, however, they did not allow the president of Turkey, they did not allow the ministers. When it comes to it, they talk about freedoms. What kind of freedom is this?” said President Erdogan.

Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım was also upset that Western countries refused to allow mass Turkish demonstrations or state run propaganda campaigns in public transits.

“The attitude that the U.S. and some European countries have taken towards various July 15 commemoration events is not acceptable under any circumstances,” the Prime Minister stated.

Turkey has done more than its fair share of censorship and violating human rights regarding the celebration of the July 15th coup:

(Breitbart)

Under Erdogan, the Turkish government has shut down hundreds of media outlets and arrested and prosecuted hundreds for “insulting the president” or otherwise criticizing the ruling Islamist Justice and Development Party (AKP). Major newspaper and broadcast outlet editors and producers have faced prosecution for generating content the AKP has branded illegal. Turkish police have arrested nearly 50,000 people since the July 15 coup for alleged ties to Fethullah Gulen, a U.S.-based cleric Erdogan claims orchestrated the failed coup. Months after the coup attempt, the Turkish government confirmed American claims that Ankara had not sent Washington any proof that Gulen was involved in the events of July 15. Gulen himself denies any involvement, while the leaders of the coup attempt made no mention of him. Instead, coup plot leaders issued a statement that day announcing that they had acted “with the aim of reinstalling the constitutional order, democracy, human rights and freedoms, to make rule of law pervade again, to re-establish the ruined public order.”

The United Nations has accused the Turkish government of human rights violations against those arrested following the failed coup.

How Turkey can expect any support from the West after treating their citizens in such a manner is ridiculous. Erdogan’s Islamist gestapo more than discredits any lessons in freedom Turkey wants to preach to the West.

French President Macron and POTUS Trump Pledge to Eradicate Terrorism on Eve of Bastille Day

President Trump and French President Macron held a joint press conference Thursday, the eve of Bastille day. One year after the Islamic terror attacks in Nice, they pledged to cooperate to “stand against these enemies of humanity, and to strip them of their territory, their funding, their networks, and their ideological support,”.

Both Presidents discussed a wide array of national security topics as well as measures to combat terrorism and internet radicalization.

“When it comes to fighting terrorism, I can say from day one we have seen eye to eye and we are strongly determined to take any necessary measures to root out terrorism and eradicate it no matter where,” he commented referencing online radicalization and cyber crime specifically.

This was President Trump’s commentary on the discussion with President Macron as well as the anniversary of the terror attack one year ago, via Breitbart:

President Trump took the opportunity pay his respects to the victims of the Nice attack, recalling that, “Tomorrow will mark one year since a joyous Bastille Day celebration turned into a massacre.”

“We all remember that – how horrible that was. We mourn the 86 lives that were stolen and we pray for their loved ones.

“We also renew our resolve to stand against these enemies of humanity, and to strip them of their territory, their funding, their networks, and their ideological support,” he pledged.

President Trump indicated that he and Macron had discussed ways their countries could “strengthen [their] vital security partnerships” in meetings with generals and other representatives from the armed forces and security services.

“France has excellent counter-terrorism capabilities,” he said. “French troops are serving bravely in places like Mali, to defeat these forces of murder and destruction. The United States and our allies strengthen our commitments to defeat terrorism.”

President Trump also asserted that efforts to destroy the Islamic State will not be undone by lack of effective post- conflict planning as was seen in Iraq under President Bush or in Libya under President Obama. This show of cooperation between the U.S and France reinforces the front against ISIS and terrorism as a whole, also indicating that the U.S does not intend on repeating its past mistakes in the Middle East.

Teenager Blasts Rap Song “F**k Tha Police!” at NYPD Officer’s Funeral

Sixteen-year-old Julien Rodriguez blasted the rap song, “F**k Tha Police” from his apartment window as thousands of police officers mourned the loss of Officer Miosotis Familia.

The deceased Officer was attacked and killed while sitting in her police vehicle last week. Julien Rodriguez said he found the experience “satisfying”.

The disturbed teen told the New York Post that he found the experience “satisfying”, adding “Since they did not show respect for my brother and my friend, why should I show respect to them?”, referencing what he saw as his brother’s unjust death at the hand of a police officer.

Via Breitbart:

Around 20 law enforcement officials then went to the teenager’s door to ask him to stop the music. The teen says he finally apologized to the officers because the building superintendent allegedly threatened to evict him and his family.

“I apologized because it was between the house and apologizing,” he said.

However, the teen did say he felt sorrow over the death of Miosotis Familia.

“I feel sympathy for that, because all she was trying to do was take bad people off the street,” he said. “It was wrong because she did not do anything wrong but at the same time, my bro and my best friend died for no reason.”

Rodriguez provided The Post with the names of both his brother and his best friend, whom he claims were killed, but The Post could not find any public records of their deaths.

During the funeral proceedings, hundreds of NYPD police officers also expressed their anger at New York Mayor Bill de Blasio by turning their backs days after he decided to skipa ceremony for 524 new NYPD cops so he could catch a flight to Hamburg in order to protest Donald Trump.”

The Gateway Pundit previously reported on the NYPD’s protest towards Mayor de Blasio at Officer Miosotis Familia’s funeral.

Professor Warns Liberals “Gen Z’s Inclinations Generally Fit Moderate Republicans”

Jeff Brauer, a professor at Keystone College, has been researching the political leanings of Generation Z, concluding that the next generation differs substantially from millennials. His findings show that Gen Z is more fiscally conservative than millennials were, and generally resemble the politics of moderate Republicans. 

The Professor says “Politically, Generation Z is liberal-moderate with social issues, like support for marriage equality and civil rights, and moderate-conservative with fiscal and security issues,”. Adding: “While many are not connected to the two major parties and lean independent, Gen Z’s inclinations generally fit moderate Republicans.”

Via Campus Reform:

Notably, Brauer’s research has indicated that growing up in an age of constant terror threats, school shootings, and economic instability has led Gen Z to prize economic stability and security more highly than millennials.

“Pollsters need to pay attention to Gen Z. People and politicians need to recognize that they aren’t millennials and shouldn’t be lumped in,” Brauer told Campus Reform, noting that “there was virtually no attention paid to this demographic” in 2016, even though it was the first presidential election in which Gen Z had the ability to vote.

“Democratic candidates lost five percent of the youth vote nationally (down from 60 percent to 55 percent),” Brauer pointed out. “In Florida, Democrats’ margin of victory among the young dropped 16 percentage points. In both Ohio and Pennsylvania, the drop was 19 points. In Wisconsin, 20 points.”

Brauer believes that this is indicative of more than a one-time phenomenon, saying “it is much more likely the precipitous drops were due to the more conservative Generation Z being able, for the first time, to express their political inclinations, especially in the economically hard-hit swing states.”

If Prof. Brauer’s findings are correct, it could mean that Republicans will have a much easier time winning the youth vote in coming elections. Prof. Brauer says his work is still unfinished, but hopes to continue collecting data on Gen Z over the coming election cycles to draw more definitive conclusions.

“This generation is different, and they are about to have a profound impact on commerce, politics, and trends,” Brauer said. “If politicians and business leaders aren’t paying attention yet, they better, because they are about to change the world.” (Prof. Brauer)

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: ‘North Korea a Smart, Rational, Calculating Government’

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria rationalized North Korea’s efforts to harness nuclear weapons as a sort of an insurance against their enemies. Zakaria justified the expanse of North Korea’s nuclear program, in reference to their unique geopolitical perspective, begging the question “What if North Korea is not Crazy?”

 

 

The argument being made is that the right way to look at North Korea is as a “smart, rational, calculating government” instead of the dangerous, bankrupt, powder keg it really is. “Regime survival” via fear tactics and empty threats is hardly a grand calculated agenda.

Mr. Zakaria’s words from the Washington Post:

Look at the world from North Korea’s perspective. The regime saw the collapse of the Soviet empire and an even more unsettling transformation in China, which went from being a fiery ideological soul mate to a pragmatic trading state that has eagerly integrated into world markets. These days, Beijing seems to view Pyongyang as a nuisance, and China now oftenvotes to condemn and place sanctions against North Korea at the United Nations.

And the world’s most powerful country has made clear that North Korea is destined for the ash heap of history. After 9/11, when the United States was attacked by Islamist terrorists emanating from the Middle East, President George W. Bush announced that the United States would no longer tolerate an “axis of evil” comprising Iraq, Iran — and North Korea. It invaded Iraq. Current U.S. policy toward Iran, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently said, is to “work toward support of those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of that government.” And regarding North Korea, President Trump wants China to “end this nonsense once and for all,” which again can only mean getting rid of the Kim government in some way.

So, the North Korean regime has tried to buy insurance. And in the realm of international affairs, the best insurance is having a nuclear capacity. Pyongyang knows that it has a large-enough army and the Korean theater of war is so small and dense that a conventional war would be unthinkable, producing hundreds of thousands of casualties and millions of refugees pouring into China and South Korea. North Korea has accurately calculated that China and South Korea are more terrified of the chaos that would follow its collapse than of its nuclear arsenal.

Perhaps the right way to look at North Korea is as a smart, rational, calculating government that is functioning shrewdly given its priority of regime survival. More pressure only strengthens its resolve to buy even more insurance. How to handle it under these circumstances?”

U Maryland Students Triggered by a Piece of Trash that Vaguely Resembles Noose

University of Maryland students are up in arms over a piece of trash that looked vaguely like a noose. They are claiming it is a racially motivated, hateful symbol deployed to intimidate black students.

Police have discounted the possibility of a hateful gesture because it wasn’t hanging from a tree, but that has not stopped the students from being enraged.

Via the Daily Caller:

Angry students at the University of Maryland, College Park were in an uproar on Tuesday because someone claimed to discover a piece of plastic wrap vaguely coiled into the shape of a noose.

Two unidentified people found the tangled, frayed strip of plastic lying partially on a sidewalk near fraternity row, reports The Diamondback, the University of Maryland student newspaper.

The people who found the plastic wrap took it for a noose and hastily reported it to campus police “out of concern for possible hate-bias,” according to statement released by school administrators.

“Preliminary investigation reveals that this type of material is used to contain loose items during transport,” the report also said, according to Campus Reform.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are looking into this matter and conducting a review of our cameras in the area.”

Apparently even trash can be racist. It is amazing how the left can spot a hate crime in just about anything these days. This incident is an example of how social justice fanatics will invent a problem where previously there was none to perpetually be a victim to promote their agenda.

Tucker Carlson discussed the “sexual exploitation” of women in recent PETA advertising at Wimbledon with feminist and political commentator Wendy Osefo.

PETA sent bikini- clad women to promote PETA and Veganism at the world famous Tennis tournament, which feminists have likened to the abuse and exploitation of animals.  

Here is the video via Tucker Carlson Tonight:


Feminist Wendy Osefo was invited on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss how women are being oversexualized by PETA in their recent advertising efforts, using women in bikinis to promote veganism at Wimbledon. “If you have to use women in a sexual manner to advance your mission, then you have to question whether your method is flawed.” was Ms. Osefo’s lackluster argument as to why PETA should change its marketing strategies.

Tucker Carlson tried to explain that all parties involved were consenting adults and that there was no need for uproar. The feminist dug in on her worn out talking points, eventually admitting that “its not really about the women” but rather its the larger issue of feminism that is important. Tucker agreed that modern feminism is not really about women, but rather about controlling people.

Could Liberal infighting get any stranger than this?

Evergreen State College Provost Requests ‘Lenient’ Grading for Anti-White Protesters

Interim Provost Ken Tabbutt encouraged Evergreen faculty to be lenient when grading students who participated in the recent anti-white protests on campus, according to emails obtained by Campus Reform.

Via Breitbart:

In emails obtained by Campus Reform, Tabbutt reportedly encouraged faculty to “consider the physical and emotional commitment the students have made” in protest efforts that included roaming the campus with baseball bats. He then allegedly asked faculty to “consider accommodations for that effort.”

The protest effort resulted in Biology Professor Bret Weinstein being forced to hold classes off campus due to safety concerns. Despite this, Tabbutt told the faculty that the academic work of the protesters may have been affected by them feeling unsafe.

“Academic work of students that have not been involved in the protests may also have been affected; many feel that the campus is not safe,” Tabbutt added, observing that “the students impacted may be disproportionately represented in some academic programs but this extends throughout the entire curriculum.”

The Provost is rewarding the violent-thug brand of activism and encouraging anti-white racism at Evergreen State by being lenient in any way. Instead of disciplining the fascist behavior of the offending students, this spineless creep is concerned with the trouble they went through terrorizing the campus with baseball bats. It is no wonder American universities are falling apart with people like Tabbutt in charge.

Hypocrite Jeremy Corbyn says he “Welcomes” the Cancellation of President Trump’s Visit to UK

Socialist politician, Jeremy Corbyn, says he “welcomes” the cancellation of President Donald Trump’s visit to the UK.

The leader of the UK’s Labour Party, Corbyn cited President Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S from the Paris Accord and his “attack” on London Mayor Sadiq Khan as reason the President should not visit to the UK.

 

He tweeted this spiteful message early on Sunday:

 

 

Jeremy Corbyn leads the UK’s Labour Party and won 40 percent of the vote in the recent national elections. Mr. Corbyn is eager to take jabs at the president of the UK’s biggest alley, all the while calling Islamist militant groups, Hamas and Hezbollah, “friends” while in parliament in 2009.

“It will be my pleasure and honor to host an event in parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking … I’ve also invited our friends from Hamas to come and speak as well,”

Obviously Mr. Corbyn has his priorities backwards. Perhaps Mr. Corbyn, as a public servant, should be more interested in cooperating with the United States President and less interested in befriending violent Islamist groups, for the sake of his own country.

British Police Chief Praises the Diversity of Victims of the London Bridge Attacks

The commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police has remarked that the range of nationalities of the victims of last weeks terror attacks proudly showcases the diversity of the city. “It’s a place where the vast majority of time it’s incredibly integrated and that diversity gives us strength.”

Cressida Dick was appointed her role as Police Commissioner in April 2017. Previous to her appointment she was known as the officer who led the botched police operation, concerning Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot dead by officers who had mistaken him for a terror accomplice.

The Commissioner had some mind boggling comments for the The Associated Press in an interview Saturday (Via Breitbart):

“In terms of our witnesses that we’ve spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity.”

“We believe of course that that’s what makes our city so great,” discussing the multiculturalism of the city.

“It’s a place where the vast majority of time it’s incredibly integrated and that diversity gives us strength.”

The commissioner is seemingly unable to confront the uncomfortable truth that cultural diversity is the root problem in regards to Islamic terrorism. Her willful ignorance and forced praise of diversity is a common and toxic sentiment in the UK. This very additude is no less than suicide for a nation under Jihad. How many more attacks will it take for multiculturalist like the commissioner to wake up and realize the truth about diversity when it comes to Islam?

 

Here, the Rebel Media’s Lauren Southern discusses the failure of multiculturalism as an ideology, specifically relating to Islam:

‘Queer Black Muslim’ Advocates For ‘Safe Spaces’ For Muslims Only (VIDEO)

A woman who self identifies as a ‘queer black Muslim’ argued with Tucker Carlson Friday evening over the need for ‘Muslim safe spaces’, provided of course by the infidel taxpayer.

 

 

When Tucker Carlson asked his guest for an example of what Muslims felt they needed a safe space to be able to say or do, her response sounded like something out of a gender studies course textbook, nonsense about “internal community dialogues”. Later, when Tucker Carlson asked the snowflake whether we were all Americans despite our other labels, she replied, “I’m black first”.

The BBC reported on a similar idea being discussed in Australia:

“A proposal by an Australian Islamic group to allow “safe spaces” for young Muslims to discuss “inflammatory” issues has sparked a row.

The Islamic Council of Victoria (ICV) said such forums enabled young people’s opinions to be “respectfully and intelligently debated and challenged”.

But State Premier Daniel Andrews said he was “very troubled” by the idea of a space where people “could be radical”.”

 

“But Premier Andrews ruled out any possibility of funding such an initiative.

“I am very troubled by the suggestion that we might have a space where people could be radical as part of a de-radicalisation programme. That makes no sense to me whatsoever”.”

 

It is not far-fetched to predict that these “safes paces” would develop into hotbeds for radical pro-Sharia dialogue at the taxpayer expense.

New Poll Reveals Just How Many Americans Support POTUS Trump’s Travel Ban

The mainstream media would have you believe that President Trump’s travel ban for terror prone countries is largely unpopular among American voters. A new poll by Rasmussen shows that 52% of Americans believe that the travel ban is in fact a ban on terrorists, not Muslims.

Via Rasmussen:

 “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters favor temporarily barring entry to the United States of people from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Forty-one percent (41%) are opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here)”

“Critics of the travel ban say it is aimed at blocking Muslims from entering the United States, and 39% agree. Fifty-two percent (52%) say Trump’s order is aimed instead at keeping out terrorists. The seven Muslim-majority countries in question were identified by the Obama administration as terrorist havens.”

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on June 4- 5 by Rasmussen Reports.

The Rasmussen poll shows “Most continue to believe Islamic leaders should do more to promote peace in their faith, but voters are evenly divided now over whether Islam encourages violence more than other religions.”, which is certainly another promising sentiment not addressed by the MSM (other than Fox) that bears mentioning.

It is encouraging to see that the majority of Americans sympathize with the President’s agenda to limit terror by controlling immigration from select countries. The consequences, if the travel ban is not instated, are clear as day in the recent attacks in the UK. Perhaps the results of this poll suggest that America is not doomed to end up like Europe and Canada after all.

TGP’s Lucian Wintrich and Ali Akbar Discuss James Clapper’s Claim That Watergate “Pales” in Comparison with Russian Collusion

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper compares claims of Russian collusion with the Watergate scandal while speaking at the National Press Club of Australia. Despite Mr. Clapper’s high- level role in U.S intelligence, a review of his career will reveal a major lack of credibility.

James Clapper has a long track record of putting his foot in his mouth and falling short in his job performance. Just to list a few:

 

One aspect of Clapper’s history that has been neglected by the media is his own corrupt involvement with private intelligence contractors such as Booz Allen Hamilton.

Lucian and Ali discuss James Clapper’s testimony and general lack of credibility, as well as the broader topic of the Left’s Russian collusion conspiracy theory.

Liberal Logic Fail: Opting Out of Paris Accord is Racist?!

Many left wing media sources are connecting the President’s decision to opt out of the Paris Climate Accord with racism and racial consequences.

The mental gymnastics required in doing so are simply stunning.

President Trump saw the truth behind the climate agreement and decided that the financial commitment was not worth the marginal decreases in carbon emissions and global temperature. His decision had nothing to do with matters of race in the slightest. “As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the nonbinding Paris accord and the draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country,” is Trumps official statement regarding the Paris Agreement.

The following magazines have made these ridiculous and confusing assertions (via Breitbart):

“Essence magazine said that Donald Trump had continued “his war on people of color in America” when he announced the United States would withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

Blavity, a website that caters to people of color, said that Trump’s decision “will worsen environmental racism,” insisting that climate change is “inherently a black issue and not just a ‘human issue.’”

The Atlantic went so far as to suggest that environmental racism is “the new Jim Crow,” referring to laws that segregated blacks and whites in their use of public schools, public places, transportation, restrooms and restaurants.”

 

Blavity writer Dominic A. Williams tries hard to connect these dots with this convoluted explanation:

“If Climate Change persist (sic), and the world’s average temperature rises more than two degrees Celsius, it would mean widespread extinctions, changing weather patterns, droughts, strong storms, rising sea levels and consequently the disappearance of coastal cities, and a plethora of not yet realized consequences.”

He goes on to discuss the racial component of this;

“Environmental racism can be described as a lack of access to healthy environments and disproportionate exposure to pollutants. This means that predominantly black neighborhoods are more likely to suffer from polluted air and water than white neighborhoods.”

Mr. Williams is falsely equating the hypothetical passive consequences of climate change with simply not being able to financially afford reforms that are doomed to fail regardless. It is incredible how liberals bend over backwards to create this nonsense, and yet annoyingly unsurprising.

Meanwhile poor and middle class Americans, including blacks, are most hurt by the liberal green agenda that forces energy costs to necessarily skyrocket.
Hence, Donald Trump as president.

The following is a PragerU video explaining the true uselessness and waste of the Paris Climate accord:

SHOCK VIDEO=> UK Government Houses Highly Dangerous Jihadist ONE BLOCK From Elementary School

The UK government is apparently more concerned with the well-being of radical Jihadists from Syria than English school children.

One of England’s most radical Sharia Law supporters, Abu Haleema, is housed just yards away from an English primary school where hundreds of children attend each day. The recent attack in Manchester shows that these monsters have no reservations when it comes to violence against the young and defenseless. 

Abu Haleema (discussing homosexuality with reporter):

 

Below is a video with anti-Jihad activist, Tommy Robinson rightfully calling out the British government on the matter, via the Rebel Media:

 

This willful neglect from the UK government puts English children directly in harms way. As the victims of political correctness rise in the UK by the day, known Islamists are allowed to walk the streets, side by side with innocent and vulnerable citizens of all ages. Abu Haleema is one of 3,000 known jihadists that the British government monitors 24/7. The British government admits that there are as many as 20,000 more known jihadists that they simply cannot afford to monitor.

Activists like Tommy Robinson are tirelessly fighting to rid their neighborhoods of Islamic migrants who they share little to no cultural and moral values with. Perhaps attitudes would be different if the migrants showed even the slightest effort to assimilate to English society.
