Feminists need to stop hurting children
Toxicity knows no bounds when it comes to feminists raising children. If you care about the future you must take a stand against feminist parenting.
Trump-Hating Protestors, Deceit and Willful Blindness
Unveiling the Left's lies about immigration, drugs and terrorism
On January 20, 2017, the very same day that President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated, protestors who opposed Trump's election and his campaign promises took to the streets in Washington, DC and elsewhere. They falsely equated securing America's borders and enforcing our immigration laws with bigotry and racism.
The protestors carried signs with a variety of slogans including a slogan favored by Hillary Clinton during her failed bid for the presidency, "Build bridges, not walls."
Where were these protestors when Obama violated the Constitution, released hundreds of thousands of criminal aliens, commuted the sentences of record numbers of drug dealers and ignored the findings of the 9/11 Commission and imported millions of foreign workers to take Americans' jobs?
Ironically, on that same day, the Justice Department issued a press release, "Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera Faces Charges in New York for Leading a Continuing Criminal Enterprise and other Drug-Related Charges."
El Chapo was the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel that smuggled multi-ton quantities of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States and used extreme violence and corruption in order to achieve their criminal goals that included the smuggling of huge quantities of illegal drugs into the United States.
The press release contains links to the Detention Memo and the Indictment and begins with these two paragraphs:
The indictment alleges that between January 1989 and December 2014, Guzman Loera led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for importing into the United States and distributing massive amounts of illegal narcotics and conspiring to murder persons who posed a threat to Guzman Loera's narcotics enterprise.
Guzman Loera is also charged with using firearms in relation to his drug trafficking and money laundering relating to the bulk smuggling from the United States to Mexico of more than $14 billion in cash proceeds from narcotics sales throughout the United States and Canada. As part of this investigation, nearly 200,000 kilograms of cocaine linked to the Sinaloa Cartel have been seized. The indictment seeks forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits.
Leaders of Drug Trafficking Organizations, alien smuggling rings and terrorists seeking to enter the United States surreptitiously could not devise a better slogan than "Build bridges not walls" to promote their criminal interests.
Perhaps, given the numerous reports about tunnels under the U.S./Mexican border, the open borders/immigration anarchists should amend their signs to read, "Build bridges and tunnels not walls."
That slogan must really resonate with El Chapo the leader of the violent Sinaloa Mexican Drug Trafficking Organization that, not unlike other such cartels, required the ability to cross the U.S./Mexican border to not only transport their drugs but their "employees" into the United States as well.
These cartel "employees" are primarily aliens who enter the United States illegally. Among them as noted in the criminal indictment, are "sicarios," or hit men who carried out hundreds of acts of violence, including murders, assaults, kidnappings, assassinations and acts of torture at the direction of the defendants.
Often the victims of the violence are members of the ethnic immigrant communities in which these thugs operate.
The majority of violent crime in the United States has a nexus to the use and/or trafficking in narcotics and dangerous drugs. The proceeds of the drug trade enriches the drug cartels and street gangs. This fast flow of money also enriches terror organizations around the world.
All too often those who become addicted to drugs have bleak futures. Tragically, often these addicts are teenagers.
The magnitude of the quantity of drugs smuggled into the United States across the U.S./Mexican border and through other means (in the holds of ships and in the cargo holds of airliners and in the baggage and secreted on passengers of airliners) is, in the aggregate, truly staggering.
El Chapo is being prosecuted in the Eastern District of New York because of the magnitude of his wholesale operations in New York City. The Sinaloa Cartel also operated in Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles and throughout parts of Arizona.
The magnitude and scope of the violence used by the Sinaloa Cartel was staggering and the press release noted that thousands of individuals were killed in Mexico to eliminate those who got in their way.
They killed law enforcement officials and others to intimidate those who would compete against this criminal organization or cooperate with law enforcement. Many of the victims were beheaded as an intimidation tactic.
This investigation was conducted by courageous law enforcement officers in Colombia, Mexico, the United States and elsewhere. In the United States the investigation was pursued by the multi-agency Organized Crime, Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) that includes agents of the DEA, FBI, ICE, ATF as well as members of local and state police departments.
Having spent the final ten years of my career with the INS assigned to OCDETF I am extremely familiar with the effectiveness of the multiagency task force approach to the investigation and dismantling of late-scale narcotics trafficking organizations and just how critical border security and effective enforcement of our nation's immigration laws, from within the interior of the United States, are to the success of these law enforcement efforts.
Incredibly, however, when Donald Trump promised to build a wall to secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico to prevent criminals, terrorists and drugs from entering the United States, the globalists, aided and abetted by dishonest journalists, created the false narrative equating Trump's goals and the goals of Americans who demand that our borders be secured against illegal entry with racism.
Securing our borders against illegal entry is not to be equated with preventing all aliens from entering the United States, only those aliens who violate our laws.
The doors on our homes have locks that can be unlatched not only so that we can enter our own homes, but so that we can selectively open our doors to those who wish to visit us.
However sensible people lock their doors to prevent the entry of burglars and those who might pose a threat to their safety.
This is comparable to the mission of the inspections process conducted at ports of entry by the more than 20,000 inspectors of CBP (Customs and Border Protection) the same agency that employs approximately 20,000 Border Patrol agents to attempt to interdict those aliens who seek to avoid the inspections process by running our borders.
Determinations as to the admissibility of aliens seeking entry into the United States is guided not by race, religion or ethnicity as politicians, pundits and pollsters falsely claim, but by the provisions of Title 8 U.S. Code § 1182 - Inadmissible aliens.
Jimmy Carter created the Orwellian term "Undocumented Immigrant" to describe illegal aliens that has, over time, enabled immigration anarchists to con many Americans into believing that deporting illegal aliens actually refers to deporting all "immigrants."
For the sake of clarity, the difference between and immigrant and an illegal alien is comparable to the difference between a houseguest and a burglar.
However, while the protestors demonstrate and engage in free speech, they need to be mindful that a one-sided conversation is not a conversation.
When news organizations provide only one side of the debate and, indeed, create a false narrative under the guise of the First Amendment, they are doing a huge disservice to their profession and to America and Americans.
How many of the protestors who demanded that we "build bridges not walls" would have participated in the demonstration carrying those signs, if the organizations, faculty members of universities and teachers in our nation's schools would truly honor the First Amendment by ending "Safe Spaces" and encouraging and fostering honest and open debates to provide Americans with a vital but increasingly rare commodity: The Truth?
It is unfathomable that hundreds of thousands of people, many of them parents, would protest on behalf of El Chapo and others engaged in the drug trade to facilitate the trafficking or narcotics in the United States and the violent crimes and malevolent transnational gangs associated with the drug trade. Yet, unwittingly, this is precisely what they are doing.
It is equally likely that the numbers of such protestors would have been greatly reduced if the media and our politicians had honestly reported on the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission when reporting on the threat of terrorism and its nexus to failures of the immigration system.
Yet there they were, demanding that our borders be left vulnerable and our immigration laws not be enforced.
"Free speech" does not protect individuals who falsely cry, "Fire!" in a crowded theater to spark a stampede.
Memo to professors, journalists, pollsters and politicians: It is time for honest speech.
Why the rabbi’s inaugural prayer evoked hate mail
by Barbara Diamond
When I first received notification that Rabbi Marvin Hier had been invited to offer a prayer at the Trump inauguration on February 20th, I wrote an article in which I elaborated upon the courage required to accept this invitation. You never saw the article because I decided not to publish it. After seeing the interviews with Rabbi Hier on television and in the press, I felt that he had so clearly explained his decision, that my comments were superfluous. He was unequivocal about his love of the United States and his respect for the US presidency as the pinnacle of its democracy. He has always been vocal on his commitment to the survival of the Jewish people.
In the meantime, the inaugural prayers have been delivered and his choice of passages from Torah and Psalms were poignant. They were messages that a large segment of the world did not want to hear.
Have there been complaints made about the prayers of the four Christian ministers who blessed the future president of the United States calling on their savior in the process? If so, I have missed them. Who exactly is so irate at the words of Torah spoken by Rabbi Hier on that moment in history? There are two distinct groups of haters. First there are the classic Anti-Semites who would simply be upset to see any Rabbi held in great respect appearing on the inaugural platform. But there is an additional audience to consider. Am I the only viewer who noticed that there were no Muslim clergy invited to speak? I am fairly sure that every Muslim around the world, received the message of their irrelevance to the founding fathers of the United States, and to its constitution quite simply by this omission. Let us examine my premise more closely:
One must only look at the words that Rabbi Hier emoted to understand why he selected them, and why others found them dangerous. “By the rivers of Babylon, we wept as we remembered Zion. If I forget thee, O Jerusalem may my right hand forget its skill.” This prayer has become emblazoned in the heart of every religious Jew for the past three thousand years. Those who have aligned themselves against the Jewish State and the Jewish people, began a calculated campaign to rewrite Jewish History.
Devised by Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian authority, it has focused on trying to prove that the Jewish people have no historic or religious connection to their land. This 3,000-year-old biblical prayer referring to the importance of Jerusalem to the Jewish people, contradicts their revisionism. Their incremental political successes in this effort have brought forth illegitimate UNESCO resolutions with false claims that the Jewish people have no connection to their holiest religious site, the Temple Mount and to their holy city. The recent Paris Conference attempted to validate the calculated lie that Jews have no rights whatsoever to Jerusalem’s Old City — in spite of massive historic evidence to the contrary.
Rabbi Hier’s quotes from the Old Testament (known by Jews world-wide as the Torah) are proof once again that the home of the Jewish faith is and has always been in Jerusalem, and is actually on the very Temple Mount which has been stolen from Jewish heritage by the Jordanians . The building of the Dome of the Rock on this specific location was and remains an insult to the Jewish world. In spite of this, Israel protects the site and the rights of Moslems to pray there in safety. In agreeing to allow the Temple Mount to stay in Arab hands, Moshe Dayan took it upon himself to acquiesce to Arab demands in a futile effort for mutual respect and co-existence. It was in essence, the first “land for Peace” swap. Dayan was not a religious man, but a General and an archaeologist who did not understand the damage that his concessions would impose on the future of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
The online vilification of Rabbi Hier’s speech and of the man himself came from cowards who would never have the courage to confront the rabbi in person. The internet potential for rebellion brings rabid anti-Semites out from their hiding places and gives them a voice with anonymity. This is not the first time he has been threatened. After more than thirty years of association with the Simon Wiesenthal Center, I know firsthand how much courage it requires to stand up for Tolerance in a world of prejudice. As the founder and dean of very organization which has fought bigotry among different ideologies and religions throughout the world, he has met with every major leader in the free world. His efforts intended to bring human beings of varying cultures together, with respect and understanding of their differences.
This same man is now receiving hate mail for defending his own people and their own land. Even some individuals who understand the horrors of the Holocaust, and who support his institution, are so afraid of the new president, that they are apologetic and embarrassed when this rabbi stands up for his own beliefs. History has taught them little.
Social media has given power to the cowards. It has given platforms to the haters. It has given anonymity to those who purport one goal, but have their secret agendas. We live in dangerous times where the public is being manipulated by individuals looking to mobilize individuals for their own purposes. We need to look carefully before joining mass events which purport to have one goal, but which are led by those who wish to cause unrest, discontentment and an American version of the “Arab-Spring” on the streets of great cities throughout the free world. Riots have been mobilized against police forces and inspired the murder of innocents.
Organizations such as “Black lives Matter” altered their agenda midstream to become a support base for the Palestinian cause, and the Women’s March on Washington is led by a woman who believes in Shariah law, which oppresses women world-wide. It becomes increasingly important for each citizen of every nation, to investigate carefully which organizations and events they support. Allowing one’s self to be used as a pawn in a larger game, is naive and dangerous.
We are living in complicated times, where what seems simple and straight forward, often is not. What appears pure may well be polluted. It is time to sit back and reassess. Arabic social media was used successfully to create havoc in the Middle East. Those who wish the same for the Democratic nations will use similar techniques to create discontent and anarchy. The past Presidential campaign was fertile ground for haters of every description to express their frustrations.
Anger from those who see life in its terms of “them” and “us” has come forth now, simply because of a prayer offered in the hope that the new President of the United States will succeed and stand up for that which is right and just. When in American history did a prayer ever become an excuse to express hate and vilify a respected man of G-d?” The times they are a-changing.”
Leftists Hate Free Speech
Punching political opponents is the kind of thing you would think gets relegated to third world nations, brand-new democracies and college frat parties. Not any more. During the insane left-wing inaugural protests, white nationalist Richard Spencer was punched in the face. Salon noted that “many find it fun to watch someone who did a Hitler salute on stage get clocked.”
The problem with that idea is when your side views everyone who opposes them as Nazis or Hitler that rationalizes political terrorism, which is precisely what the left does, like this cartoon from Alternet depicting the attacker as a modern day Capt. America.
Salon cover editor Jeremy Binckes (who looks like he is on his way to his very own Bund meeting) tried to make light of a serious and scary topic. Actual quote: “Maybe the question shouldn’t be, ‘Is it OK to punch a Nazi?’ but, ‘If you don’t want to be punched in the face, maybe you shouldn’t preach Nazi values to the public?’”
He wrote this after having done his part to preach Nazi values. Because beating up political opponents is precisely what the Nazis did in 1930s Germany. It’s wrong, even when it’s someone awful like Spencer. Because next time it might be you.
Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.
American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of other countries. The only real difference, however, is how much power they have. In America, their power is limited by democracy. To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges. They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did: None. So look to the colleges to see what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way. It would be a dictatorship.
