MSNBC Republicans Suffer Mind-Numbing Trump Meltdowns Over Porn, Russia, Trade

<p>One could say that it was late on a Friday afternoon, but then again, this is MSNBC’s <em>Deadline: White House</em> and liberal Republicans offering fear-mongering prognostications are nothing new. On the March 16 edition, host Nicolle Wallace led a band of MSNBC Republicans as each offered assessments ranging from bragging about smearing Sarah Palin to arguing the President’s tariffs will cause a depression to ironically complaining about having to discuss porn. </p>

Life in a White Country

I live in Kyiv (Kiev), Ukraine. It has a homogeneous population—mostly Slavs. There is diversity here, but not the kind that would show up in a photograph: We have Ukrainians, Russians, Georgians, Tatars, Hungarians, Poles, and various other Europeans. There are also Jews, quite a few Gypsies, and a smattering of Muslims from central Asia. Only Gypsies are thought of as crime prone. With the exception Jews and Gypsies, most of the elements in this mix think of themselves as pretty much equal. Jews are vastly overrepresented in business and government.

Here in Ukraine, I don’t have to worry about the police not doing their jobs, because there is not that much for them to do. When there are crimes, though, they are not very efficient at solving them. They are not highly paid. They are not very good at controlling speeding. Parking enforcement is lax. They would be puzzled if anybody told them that they should be bothering citizens for violating ordinances against burning leaves in their backyard or leaving bottles on the street.

I don’t worry about walking down the street alone at night or through the park. The police are not a strong deterrent to crime, but they don’t need to be. Ukrainian people are not prone to violence, and they respect each other. Violence is seldom random. If someone gets killed, the odds are he could have told you why and by whom he was killed. If you don’t anger the wrong people, you are pretty safe.

The police aren’t called on to settle domestic disturbances. Spousal abuse certainly happens, but the problem is settled by families. The most common cause is wives berating their husbands about their drinking. Some guys resent it and get physical.

Homosexuals are tolerated the way they were in the US when I was young. They don’t make an issue of it, and people don’t bother them. Ukrainians use the toilets that correspond to their sex. If there are cross-dressers in this city of four million—and I assume there must be—they are discreet about it. I suspect they use whatever bathroom they think they can get away with. Anyhow, the issue never comes up.

Even though there is a war with Russia, Ukraine doesn’t worry too much about security in public buildings. There are guards but they don’t look very effective, and the buildings are not the fortresses one finds in the United States. Ukrainians couldn’t afford to build fortresses, and they don’t have people who would pose a threat.

The exception is political violence. Because the city administration buildings were not defended, Russians were able to take them over easily during the Euromaidan and the revolution in 2014. The surprise is not that the Russians and their proxies succeeded in the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk, but that they failed in Kharkiv, Mariupol, Odessa, and many others. There were some victories over the fresh, untried, and disoriented Ukrainian government, but not what you would expect, given the government’s lax defenses.

I have never heard of a school shooting here. It would be easy to pull one off because schools have no security at all. A school shooting would simply be unthinkable. Nobody is that alienated. Students feel a connection to their fellow Ukrainians and to their school. In any case, Ukraine’s gun laws are much like those in the rest of Europe, and it would be hard legally to acquire anything more powerful than an air rifle. But game hunting is legal, and with a war going, Ukrainians assure me that there are contraband AK-47s available at reasonable prices.

I even have a good word for the graffiti here. There is quite a bit on the concrete walls of the passageways that connect public transit stops, such as between the electric railway and the subway. Some of it is fairly high quality. There are beautiful murals decorating the sides of buildings, some of them 20- or 30-stories high, but they are done with permission. Such graffiti as there is does not appear to be profane or gang oriented. It is clearly of a higher class than Western graffiti.

Mural in Kyiv.

There is loitering, but it’s not a problem either. People gather in the parks in the summer—often groups of young men drinking beer. The old ladies get righteously indignant about where they put their empty beer bottles. The young guys are generally discreet enough not to relieve themselves in public; the police would make a fuss if they happened to witness it. Loiterers don’t seem to be a danger to anybody. They don’t make catcalls at women. Only occasionally do they have obnoxious boomboxes with them.

As for Ukrainian popular music, it is not sophisticated, but it is somewhat preferable to Western pop music. The Ukrainian equivalent of country music is called chanson, from the French word. The usual beat is a thumping 4/4 time, the melody often sung in a raspy voice. The themes of love, betrayal, and loneliness are universal. There is an equivalent to rap music, but it is sung in Ukrainian by Ukrainians. It does not seem to be as degrading and profane as American rap music.

There are of course rude people here. Our jerks are not generally threatening—just unhappy, maladjusted people. Offsetting the relatively few jerks, you frequently witness spontaneous acts of kindness.

There are a lot of old people. Strangers help them off the bus all the time. I am somewhat chagrined to find myself now counted among the geriatric. Young men offer me a hand as I’m stepping down. I’m still fully capable, but I appreciate the gesture because I know it will be there when I need it.

Even the Gypsies aren’t that bad. Their crimes are not violent, and they don’t commit any at all in neighborhoods like the one I live in—a quarter mile from where they live in condemned, unheated houses along the right of way of a future metro. I have to respect the Ukrainians’ apprehension of Gypsies—they know them better than I do—but I have never seen anything untoward.

Gypsies in Ukraine.

Littering is a problem, with bottles and trash all over the place. The Ukrainians resent this as much as I do. My six-year-old son is pretty good about cleaning up other people’s messes. We have to carry our garbage to a dumpster about a quarter of a mile away. He will usually pick up trash along the way.

Littering is careless, not malicious. People may throw beer bottles on the roadside, but they don’t throw them at oncoming cars. Nobody dumps rocks or bricks off of overpasses. Nothing would stop you; people just don’t do it.

It is said that Ukraine has a major drug problem. I know a lot of young people, but not one says he has tried drugs. I never smell marijuana. People tell me that needle drugs are a problem around the railroad station. One more than occasionally sees zonked out bums, but they look more like alcoholics than druggies. I could be naïve. At any rate, they are not violent. I have a strong suspicion that the international do-gooder community exaggerates Ukraine’s social problems.

If there are gangs, they old-fashioned, for-profit enterprises intent on victimizing society as a whole instead of rival gangs. There isn’t nearly as much of the kind of identity around which gangs usually coalescence: race, ethnicity, nationality, localism. There isn’t any evidence or talk of gang colors, gang wars, gang territory, or anything like that.

Everybody except the well-to-do send their children to neighborhood schools. The teachers follow government-imposed standards, and are not afraid to measure students by them. There isn’t any class of students that is considered academically slow. The Gypsies do teachers the favor of avoiding school altogether. A teacher can thus afford to give an honest evaluation of students’ performance without any fear of being accused of discrimination.

Teachers work for the government, and people have a long-standing respect and even fear for the government. They don’t tell teachers how to do their jobs, and generally appreciate what teachers are doing for their children.

Kyiv has a beautiful Metro system that was begun about 60 years ago. It boasts the deepest underground station of any subway in the world. It has three intersecting lines that run to the city limits in six places, with a fourth line under construction. The city also has an extensive and highly effective system of tramways, a funicular, a regional electric railway, electric buses, diesel buses, and a fleet of contractor operated jitney buses.

The drivers are not unionized. They are happy to have their jobs. The managers hire on the basis of competence—no other consideration—and there has not been a strike in the ten years I have been here. Drivers are generally polite, and almost never get into accidents. Maintenance staff is also good. Although the fleet is old, breakdowns are rare.

The fare collection system would not work in the West. A conductor on the bus collects fares and hands out tickets that riders validate, using one of the ticket punches bolted to the vertical supports that passengers hang on to. A controller occasionally comes through the bus asking to see tickets. A rider without a ticket is fined 20 times the price of a ride, so if a ride costs 20¢, the fine is $4.00.

The system is incredibly low-tech. The conductor gets paid in cash and could skim money if he wanted. The passengers on a crowded bus could credibly claim that they tried to pay the conductor but couldn’t reach him. But they pay. Riders ferry the money hand to hand to the conductor, and get the ticket and change back, likewise hand to hand.

About half the ridership—students and people over 60—ride for free. A controller would have a hard time collecting if somebody boldly lied, and claimed to be over 60. The system is based on trust. If people wanted to cheat, they could, but they don’t.

In Kyiv, you needn’t be afraid to complain about breaches of etiquette. If a guy is “manspreading” on the bus or smells like urine, the old ladies let him know he is violating standards. Any society depends more on custom than on laws, and it is the common people within that society who enforce standards. In Ukraine, people still uphold standards.

With nobody to discriminate against, Ukraine does not have antidiscrimination laws. Businesses can hire whom they please, so nepotism is rampant; bosses hire their relatives. Aside from that, employers hire the best person for the job. That’s one reason why computer services thrive here. No groups enjoy preference. Nobody is pushing for more of any particular type of person in the workforce. The focus is on getting the job done and pleasing the client.

Ukraine has almost no labor unions. A job is a matter strictly between employer and employee, and most people are happy just to have jobs.

Mortgage lending is not as well developed in Kyiv as in the West. Most lenders require both a substantial down payment and charge high monthly payments. Borrowers have two unattractive alternatives: They can borrow in the local currency, and pay high interest rates, or if they borrow in a foreign currency at low rates they may be whipsawed by exchange-rate fluctuations.

The government does not force lenders to take nonfinancial factors into consideration. Banks lend strictly according to ability to repay. As a result, it is hard to borrow beyond your means, and the level of private debt seems sustainable. There are no restrictive covenants and no ethnic neighborhoods.

In the Ukrainian civil service, there are competitive examinations to get in, and people rise in the ranks based on their performance and connections. Some bureaucrats treat the public with indifference, but it is almost always Ukrainians dealing with Ukrainians. The fact that it is their own people seems to make things better.

The clerks who registered the birth of our children, and who processed a recent marriage of a friend to an English guy, were polite and considerate. They went out of their way to be helpful when the documentation didn’t all fall into place. Ukrainians see my children as part of the future of their society, and they want them to succeed.

Ukraine reminds me of America in the 1950s. Material wealth is several times lower than in today’s West. A family usually has no more than one car, and is lucky to own its own apartment. Ukrainians enjoy universal healthcare and pensions, but both are very modestly funded. People have to be responsible for their own lives to a greater extent than in the West.

Ukrainians live, work, and go to school with people like themselves. In the 1950s, while America may not have been homogeneous nationally, it was at the local level. People lived among their own kind, and there was a high level of trust.

Ukraine and the Visegrad countries have remained homogeneous even as the West has changed. We are materially poorer than the West—a legacy of the mismanagement and corruption of communism and the czarist Empire—but we have mutual trust and appreciation. Racial homogeneity is our strength.

REPORT: Failed AG Sessions Will Not Fire Andrew McCabe

According to independent journalist Mike Cernovich, McCabe is safe. AG Sessions will not fire the FBI Deputy Director despite clear misconduct.

McCabe is set to receive a hefty pension.

Cernovich’s sources are telling him Sessions will not drop the hammer on McCabe.

Cernovich tweeted: Jeff Session said he won’t fire McCabe, two sources familiar with his decisionmaking told me, thus sending a message to @realDonaldTrump that those who lie to the FBI in an effort to help Hillary are safe.

Cernovich then tweeted: McCabe is safe, Sessions isn’t going to fire him despite clear misconduct.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was mulling firing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after an internal review recommended he be terminated.

McCabe is currently on ‘terminal leave’ and is set to retire on Sunday with his full pension.

According to Horowitz’s report, McCabe authorized illegal leaks to the media and misled the Inspector General’s investigators.

As previously reported, according to the New YorkTimes, McCabe authorized a leak to the Wall Street Journal which led to an October 2016 article that revealed an internal dispute between the FBI and DOJ about how to handle Hillary Clinton’s email investigation that had just been reopened after classified emails were found on Weiner’s laptop.

Americans should not fund McCabe’s pension after what he did to weaponize the FBI, mislead the FISA court among other criminal actions.

This is just like Lois Lerner all over again. Corrupt IRS official Lois Lerner is receiving a fat pension despite targeting conservative organizations.

Mike Cernovich previously broke the Susan Rice unmasking story and Rep. John Conyers sexual harassment scandal.

‘Congress Should Get Answers’ GOP Lawmakers Rip DOJ For Hiding Peter Strzok Had Personal Relationship With Judge Involved in Flynn Case

Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok had a personal relationship with Rudolph Contreras, the judge who previously recused himself from General Flynn’s case according to a new report by Sara Carter.

GOP lawmakers ripped the DOJ for hiding the fact that Peter Strzok had a relationship with Judge Contreras from Congress.

Pictured: FBI agent Peter Strzok (L) and Judge Rudolph Contreras (R)

Sara Carter reports on the texts:

In a text message chain from Page to Strzok on July, 25, 2016 she writes, “Rudy is on the FISC! Did you know that? Just appointed two months ago.” At that point, the pair continues to discuss other issues but comes back to Contrares, “I did. We talked about it before and after. I need to get together with him.” Then later Strzok appears to return to his discussion about Contreras.

Social media was set ablaze after Sara Carter published her report on Peter Strzok’s cozy relationship with Judge Contreras.

Rep Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said Congress should get answers.

DeSantis tweeted: Congress should get answers on the recusal of Judge Contreras and the relationship between the judge and the FBI’s Peter Strzok. The handling of the Flynn case has been problematic to say the least.

Freedom Caucus Chairman, Rep Mark Meadows (R-NC) reacted to the news.

Rep Meadows tweeted: Important story. When a lead FBI investigator (Peter Strzok) discusses his personal relationship with a FISA judge, the DOJ should not keep that kind of material from Congress, and more importantly, from the American people. We need to know. Period.

Rep Meadows then followed up with a call for greater transparency from the DOJ and FBI.

Here’s the bottom line: the DOJ/FBI must operate with greater transparency and turn over more documents with fewer redactions, allowing Congress to investigate and do our jobs. That’s what the American people demand.

Brzezinski to Huckabee Sanders: ‘You’re Not Being a Good Person and You’re Not Being a Good American’

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski stated White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is “not being a good person” and “not being a good American.” After playing a clip of Sanders saying that outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is “by most accounts, a bad actor,” co-host Joe Scarborough stated, “That bad actor, by the way, was key in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation, was key — he was a member of the SWAT team, New York FBI. He’s a guy that was put in charge of high-value interrogation. I mean, this guy has been a hero, a law enforcement hero. He also helped land the arrest of a key figure in the conspiracy in Benghazi, and for some White House flack to say that a hero of law enforcement is a ‘bad actor,’ is a disgrace to every man and woman that wears the uniform, a disgrace to every agent in the FBI.” Republican strategist Susan Del Percio added, “In that same press conference, they called Putin a ‘bad actor.’ That’s who he’s comparing — this White House is comparing this hero to.” Brzezinski stated, “Sarah Huckabee Sanders has an opportunity to be a good person.

Democrats Back a Bank Bill That Could Hurt Black Homebuyers

When 67 senators voted on Wednesday night to weaken the Dodd-Frank Act and ease rules across the banking industry, they also made it easier for banks to discriminate against black borrowers.

A provision in the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act would exempt the large majority of mortgage lenders from key disclosure requirements that help the government identify racial discrimination and enforce fair housing laws. The provision would facilitate redlining, allowing lenders to deny loans to black homebuyers, while also giving lenders carte blanche to overcharge black homebuyers or steer them into the same predatory loans that exploded during the financial crisis, pushing countless families into foreclosure.

Yet this bill, which would widen the already staggering racial wealth gap, won support from more than a dozen Democratic senators, including members such as Tim Kaine, Mark Warner, Claire McCaskill, and Doug Jones who rely on black and Hispanic voters to win elections. (The bill is also backed by one independent, Angus King of Maine, who caucuses with Democrats.)


{snip} Despite the Fair Housing Act and other measures meant to break residential segregation, most black Americans remain cloistered in black neighborhoods with elevated rates of poverty, joblessness, and crime, as banks continued to discriminate against black customers in a less visible but still potent form of redlining. This kind of segregation does more than concentrate and intensify disadvantage—it creates captive markets, as consumers live at the mercy of a handful of providers. This is especially true for lending. {snip}

With the rise of subprime lending in the 1990s, discrimination in real estate lending moved from traditional redlining—where blacks (and Hispanics) were denied loans outright—to predatory lending practices, where banks targeted black homebuyers with the most dangerous loans, saddling a large crop of underserved consumers with burdensome terms and undue risk. {snip}


The combination of predatory subprime lending and the financial crisis had a similar effect, wiping out decades of growth and setting black families back a generation. A 2015 report commissioned by the ACLU found that, as a result of the recession, home equity for black Americans dropped by 12 percent, compared to 9 percent for whites, and projected black household wealth will continue to be substantially lower compared to their white counterparts.


The acting director of the CFPB [Consumer Finance Protectoin Bureau], White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney, has stripped enforcement powers from the unit responsible for pursuing discrimination cases. But banks are still collecting the data, which is valuable in itself. The new banking bill would change that, obscuring the activities of smaller lenders and—if history is a guide—facilitating the practices that disadvantage black and Hispanic homebuyers and maintain vast disparities in wealth and opportunity.

The Senate Democrats who back this bill say they need a bipartisan accomplishment ahead of a difficult campaign season to show voters that they can “break through the partisan gridlock that has plagued Washington for too long.”


Racism is more than just bigotry and hate. It’s a structural force that shapes our economy as much as it influences our politics. It assigns differential value to human life and labor, marking particular groups as subordinate castes and opening them up to exploitation and expropriation. Housing discrimination and redlining are a case study in how race and capital accumulation operate together, with dispossession happening along racial lines.

IRS Documented 1.3M Identity Thefts by Illegal Aliens; Can’t Say It Referred Any for Prosecution

The Internal Revenue Service in 2011 through 2016 documented more than 1.3 million cases of identity theft perpetrated by illegal aliens whom the IRS had given Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN), which are only given to people who are ineligible to work in the United States or receive Social Security Numbers, according to information published by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).


TIGTA, which is the inspector general responsible for overseeing the IRS, discovered another approximately 1.2 million cases in 2017 in which an illegal alien working in the United States had filed a tax return reporting wages that had been earned using a Social Security Number that belonged to someone else or was fabricated.

Yet the IRS also could not say whether it referred any of these cases for criminal prosecution.

Using a stolen or fake Social Security Number is a felony.

“The Social Security Act,” TIGTA has noted, “provides that whoever, with the intent to deceive, falsely represents a number to be his or her SSN when, in fact, that number was not assigned to that person, shall be guilty of a felony and subject to a fine, imprisonment, or both. This includes using a false SSN to obtain employment.”

When processing individual tax returns, according to reports filed by TIGTA, the IRS ordinarily encounters two types of identity theft. One involves what TIGTA calls “refund fraud” and the other involves “employment-related fraud.”

In cases of refund fraud, the “identity thief” uses another person’s Social Security Number and personal identification information “to file a fraudulent tax return, reporting fictitious wages and withholdings and obtains a tax refund.”

“Cases of employment identity theft identified by the Internal Revenue Service usually involve an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) filer who used the Social Security Number of another individual, i.e. victim, to gain employment,” TIGTA said in a report released in February.


The approximately 1.3 million cases of employment-related identity theft documented and recorded by the IRS in 2011 through 2016, involved foreign nationals whom the IRS had given Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs).

So, too, did the approximately 1.2 million cases of illegal aliens using Social Security Numbers that belonged to someone else or had been fabricated that TIGTA discovered in 2017.

The numbers of these cases were cited in the TIGTA report released last month. It was entitled, “Most Employment Identity Theft Victims Have Not Been Notified That Their Identities Are Being Used by Others for Employment.”


A January 2004 TIGTA report said: “The IRS Office of Chief Counsel determined that, ‘the group of persons with United States federal tax obligations who are not eligible to obtain an SSN is limited to non-citizens who either do not reside in the United States or reside here illegally.”

In 1999, TIGTA released a report warning that with its ITIN program the IRS had embraced a policy to “‘legalize’ illegal aliens” that “increases the potential for fraud.”

In a follow-up report in 2004, TIGTA concluded that ITIN holders who filed tax returns using a Social Security Number were in fact illegal aliens.


The IRS’s Criminal Investigation division publishes an annual report stating how many “prosecution recommendations” it makes each fiscal year and the crimes for which it makes them. In the six fiscal years from 2011 through 2016, according to these reports, IRS CI made 20,986 prosecution recommendations and 4,329 of them were for identity theft cases.

If everyone one of these identity theft prosecution recommendations had been for a case of employment identity theft—rather than refund-fraud identity theft—that would have equaled 0.3 percent of the 1,346,485 ITIN-holder cases the IRS documented in those years.

Similarly, in fiscal year 2017, when TIGTA discovered 1,227,579 tax returns filed by ITIN holders that included W-2s with “over 1 million valid” SSNs on them, IRS CI made only 403 prosecution recommendations in identity theft cases.

On its website, the IRS has posted 369 examples of successful identity theft investigations that IRS CI conducted and recommended for prosecution in fiscal years 2015, 2016 and 2017. But only five of the 369 examples mention the ITIN and each of these five describe a scheme to engage in refund fraud not employment-related fraud. {snip}

California Appoints First Undocumented Immigrant to Official Post

California has appointed an unauthorised immigrant to an official state post, a first that also functions as the state’s latest act of defiance against Donald Trump.

State Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León, a Los Angeles Democrat who is running for the US Senate on an anti-Trump platform, announced that 33-year-old attorney Lizbeth Mateo would serve as a member of the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee. The appointment is unpaid.


Born in Oaxaca, Mexico, Ms Mateo came to Los Angeles with her parents when she was 14. She said in a statement that her experience as an undocumented, first-generation college student would inform her work.

“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,” Ms. Mateo said.


State elected officials have been similarly vocal in denouncing the Trump administration. Mr Brown last week decried the federal government “going to war” against California and slammed the administration as “full of liars”.

Illegal Voting in Pennsylvania Congressional Race

Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District had a special election Tuesday to fill a recently vacated seat until the November election.

As of this writing, the vote is so close that neither candidate has been declared the winner by the Pennsylvania Secretary of State. But one thing we can reasonably surmise is that there were illegal votes cast in that election, and enough to determine the outcome.

The district, in western Pennsylvania, currently includes parts of Greene, Washington, Westmoreland, and Allegheny Counties.

The Center for Immigration Studies’ map of sanctuary cities, counties, and states lists Westmoreland County as a sanctuary county, which almost guarantees that illegal aliens have been registered to vote.

  1. Christian Adams, President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), presented research and information on illegal voting by noncitizens at the September, 2017 Social Contract Writers’ Workshop in Washington, D.C., and recently filed a lawsuit against the state of Pennsylvania that notes:

A Philadelphia official added before the Assembly that early figures of noncitizen PennDOT customers and registered voters revealed more than 100,000 current matches.

That’s 100,000 noncitizens registered to vote in Pennsylvania that their Department of Transportation knows about.

The PILF lawsuit has exhibits that show noncitizens were registered to vote. Exhibit 4 shows Monroeville resident Devanathan Sundaramu Mudaliar’s voter registration was cancelled because of noncitizen status. Monroeville is a suburb of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County that had a 15,000 vote disparity between the two candidates. And we know that Pittsburgh’s Mayor William Paduto has said, “Immigrants and refugees are welcome here, and we will do everything within our power to protect them and all our residents.” All of which is code for welcoming and not enforcing the law against illegal aliens. Of course, it is reasonable to expect that this attitude has bled over into the suburbs of Pittsburgh that are in the 18th Congressional District.

University Offers Guide on ‘Talking to Kids About Whiteness’

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) has a new “resource for parents” to help them with “talking to kids about whiteness.”

“Given all the race, national origin, class-based violence, anti-blackness, and anti-immigrant rhetoric in the media and the subsequent backlash from white-identified people and groups, there is a growing need for mindful, supportive education for white children,” asserts the post sponsored by the UMBC Student Life Mosaic and Interfaith Centers.

“White privilege can lead to a chronic case of undiagnosed entitlement, creating poor listeners, impatient speakers who talk over others, and people unaccustomed to taking orders.”


The first article, “What White Children Need to Know about Race,” discusses the “deep sense of shame” that the author experiences when discussing the subject of race, which he traces to the fact that his white family never engaged in conversations about race when he was growing up.


The second article, a 2015 op-ed in The Washington Post, expands on that theme by providing specific advice for how parents can begin exposing children to “the discomfort of living with racism,” suggesting for instance that “pointing and showing” are the most effective techniques for communicating such concepts to toddlers.

As children get older, the author proposes gradually increasing the complexity of the conversation, focusing on emotion and empathy when kids are ages 5, 6, and 7 before switching to discussions of news and current events at age 8.

Curriculum for White Americans To Educate Themselves on Race and Racism-from Ferguson to Charleston,” the final resource on the list, asserts that white privilege can lead to a sequence of negative behavioral traits.

“White privilege can lead to a chronic case of undiagnosed entitlement, creating poor listeners, impatient speakers who talk over others, and people unaccustomed to taking orders,” Jon Greenberg contends in the article published by Citizenship and Social Justice. “Nevertheless, the movement for racial justice needs more White Americans to get involved.”

The “Talking to Kids about Whiteness” resource concludes by directing readers to a blog with additional information, such as “entries on how to name whiteness in books with all white characters and how to name race in other books.”

Orlando Newspapers Target ‘White Supremacist’ Black Woman

The Orlando Weekly’s Xander Peters frames the story this way: “Orange County middle school teacher has an incredibly racist Twitter account.” According to Peters, this teacher “retweeted an anti-Muslim post by Identify [sic] Evropa, a white supremacist group that aims to create a white ethnostate.”

Neither the Orlando Weekly nor the Orlando Sentinel, which also covered the story of this “racist” teacher, shows you a photo of the offender.

That is probably because the accused “racist” and “white supremacist” teacher, Sundai Brown, is a black woman.

What race is she supposedly attacking? Jihad terror and Islamization. Islam, as any sane person knows, is not a race, and Muslims are not of a single race, but of all races. But the Orlando Weekly and Orlando Sentinel are out to destroy Sundai Brown’s career and livelihood, for the crime of opposing jihad violence and the spread of Sharia to non-Muslim countries. They have targeted her because she reportedly tweeted that “imans [sic] worldwide instruct muslims to invade western countries, outbreed them, overthrow governments, kill infidels and implement sharia law.”

Are there imams and other Muslim leaders who have preached such things? Yes. Examples are not hard to find.

Brown has retweeted posts from Identity Evropa, which both the Weekly and the Sentinel call “Identify Evropa,” and which they claim is a white supremacist group because the hard-Left Anti-Defamation League (ADL) says so.


This witch hunt against Sundai Brown is just one of many nowadays. People who express the slightest opposition to jihad terror, or any hesitation about the project of inundating Western countries with Muslim migrants, have long been targeted. But now, they are not simply tarred as racist, bigoted Islamophobes — that defamation has been going on for well over a decade — but are also targeted professionally.

The Leftist/Islamic alliance, through its tools in the establishment media, wants to drive all those who do not echo the hard-Left agenda out of the public sphere altogether. They are applying Hillary Clinton’s call to use “peer pressuring and shaming” against those who get out of line, and endeavoring quite simply to destroy all dissent and all dissenters.


This extends even to basic efforts to make a living. The Washington Post got Terry Jones, the famous Qur’an-burning pastor, fired from driving for Uber, even though he wasn’t exactly burning Qur’ans as he carried passengers to their destination. It’s clear that if I quit this work today and got a job selling real estate or driving a truck, the likes of Lean, the Post, and other Leftist totalitarians would publicize it to get me fired.


It is high time we push back against this incipient totalitarianism, and put an end to this “peer pressure and shaming” and destruction of people’s lives and careers because they said something the Leftist establishment doesn’t like. If we don’t, their path is cleared: this totalitarian straitjacket will be applied to us ever more tightly, until it won’t be possible for anyone to be employed anywhere unless they say and think what Big Brother demands they say and think.


[Editor’s Note: Because the online edition of Orlando Weekly includes screen shots from Sandai Brown’s tweets, it does, in fact, include small photos of her.]

Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia. 

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.

General Flynn’s Family Reacts to New Bombshell Report Revealing Peter Strzok Had Personal Relationship With Judge Involved in Flynn Case

Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok had a personal relationship with Rudolph Contreras,the judge who previously recused himself from General Flynn’s case according to a new report by Sara Carter.

Sara Carter reports on the texts:

In a text message chain from Page to Strzok on July, 25, 2016 she writes, “Rudy is on the FISC! Did you know that? Just appointed two months ago.” At that point, the pair continues to discuss other issues but comes back to Contrares, “I did. We talked about it before and after. I need to get together with him.” Then later Strzok appears to return to his discussion about Contreras.

Sources close to Flynn tell The Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross that Strzok’s relationship with Contreras “is something they might look into.”

General Flynn’s brother, Joseph J. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr. both reacted to the bombshell news.

Michael Flynn Jr. responded to Sara Carter by saying this information could have come in handy for General Flynn BEFORE he plead guilty to lying to the FBI on December 1st.

Flynn Jr. tweeted: “I don’t know. Seems like this info could’ve been brought up BEFORE Dec 1, 2017

General Flynn’s brother, Joseph J. Flynn responded to Sara Carter by hammering the Deep State and their agenda to destroy anyone who is not in their inner circle.

Joseph Flynn tweeted: I guess that is why they call it “Deep State”… everyone is friend’s with everyone and if you are on the wrong side of their agenda, they will do everything they can to destroy you..

Joseph Flynn has been a huge support system for his brother, General Flynn and previously called on President Trump to pardon his brother.

The take down of General Flynn was a Deep State set up.

General Flynn’s phone call with Russian Ambassador Kislyak during the Trump transition was illegally leaked to the liberal media.

Dirty cop Andrew McCabe and disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok worked in coordination to take out General Flynn.

Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok then ambushed General Flynn and interviewed him on January 24th 2017 without his lawyer present.

Now we find out Strzok and Judge Contreras were buddies!

On December 1st 2017 it was reported General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI deep state operatives in the ongoing Trump witch hunt.

At the end of January, Special Counsel Robert Mueller requested the postponement of former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn’s sentencing.

General Flynn should be pardoned and reimbursed for all of his legal fees.
