I agree completely with Trevor when he says that 2015 could usher in chaos, unrest and violence as we have not seen in our lifetime. The Communists are now joining hands in America with the Radical Islamists, forming an American Intifada – an uprising, resistance, revolt. They are using racism as the building blocks and their hate for America as the glue to forward massive havoc and violence in our streets. The riots...

    NEW YORK – Mayor Bill de Blasio, his administration threatened to be overwhelmed by a rift with rank-and-file New York Police Department officers, on Monday condemned the thousands of cops who turned their backs to him during a pair of funerals for slain police officers. In his first public remarks on the officers' protests, de Blasio said the cops' searing rebuke was hurtful to the families of the two officers killed in an ambush last month and was an offense to the city at large. "Those individuals who took certain actions the last two weeks, they were disrespectful to the...

    With the latest crackdown in Cuba showing just how Havana has ‘read’ Obama’s policy shift towards the Castro dictatorship, this new Foreign Affairs article by Victor Gaetan giving some background to the Vatican’s involvement in the deal that was eventually struck makes timely reading. Here’s an extract (my emphasis added): In Cuba, in other words, the church is still strong. Havana’s Cardinal Archbishop Jaime Lucas Ortega y Alamino has followed a strategy of reconciliation on the island, avoiding confrontation with the state while winning more independence to carry out the Church’s religious mission. Under Ortega’s 35-year leadership, the Catholic Church,...

    New York Major Bill de Blasio lashed out at the media for disrupting the City’s unity. “While I have been working diligently to convey an image of solidarity between myself and those protesting against police brutality, the media have introduced divergent perspectives that now threaten what I’ve sought to achieve.” The “divergent perspective” seems to be the idea that murdering police officers is an illegitimate method of protest against perceived racial inequities in law enforcement. “Police knowingly undertake jobs that are inherently risky,” de Blasio said. “Still, when all the numbers are tabulated, the police suffer fewer casualties than they...

    Few, if any, would have guessed that as we arrive at the end of 2014, Barack Obama would give a Christmas present to communists around the world. Two communist regimes, Cuba and North Korea, defeated Barack Obama the week before Christmas. The North Koreans were able to hack a Hollywood film company's computers. That company, Sony Pictures, intended to release "The Interview," a comedy about the assassination of North Korea's Dear Leader. They have no plans to do so now. The North Koreans released confidential financial data about the company, released damaging internal emails, and when those efforts did not...

The theme for this year’s display at Claremont United Methodist Church on Foothill Boulevard is “Commercialism and the Oppressed.” Church leaders say the eyes of God are always watching and people should reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. “We want to draw attention to those people who are on the margins who Jesus would be standing with today,” said Pamela Bunce of Claremont United Methodist Church.

One of the operatives worked at the Naval Air Station in Key West, while another worked undercover in Tampa. “They were very good,” said Ramón Saúl Sánchez, the founder of the Movimiento Democracia, one of the exile organizations that was infiltrated. “When you trust somebody who you honestly believe is...

The Florida lawmaker, whose parents immigrated to the U.S. from Cuba in the 1950s, said he was pleased that American Alan Gross have been freed from captivity in Cuba. But Rubio sounded a negative tone about what the U.S. gave up in order...

When speaking about what constitutes terrorism and a terrorist state, Ayers said: “U.S. is indeed a terrorist nation.” Then he added: “It’s also the greatest purveyor of violence on earth over the past half century, and the foremost threat to world peace today.”

With all that graft, it's no wonder some actors are overpaid. Yet, it's highly likely that some are actually underpaid. The problem is government would have absolutely no way of knowing. With all the subsidies and taxes, it's impossible to know who is overpaid and who isn't....

    I have been out of the country twice this year. The first time, I was in Mexico when protests broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, over the shooting death of Michael Brown; more recently, my two weeks in Argentina coincided with nationwide demonstrations against the lack of grand jury indictments in the cases of Brown and Eric Garner, the Staten Island police chokehold victim. Witnessing a nascent anti-police brutality movement from a distance has given me a different perspective on it, because the novelty of getting out in the streets in America and demanding justice stands in stark contrast to the...

    Who is a hero? In today’s America, it is someone who chooses a military career, puts on a uniform, and prepares for war. Placing soldiers and veterans on this kind of pedestal is a relatively new phenomenon. Past generations of Americans saw soldiers as ordinary human beings. They were like the rest of us: big and small, smart and dumb, capable of good and bad choices. Now we pretend they are demi-gods. One reason Americans have come to view soldiers as our only protectors is that we have accepted the idea that our country is under permanent threat from fanatics...

    A left-wing party with communist roots now controls the levers of government in the German state of Thuringia, marking the first time a political party closely linked to East Germany’s communist leadership has gained power since German reunification in 1990. The party is, appropriately enough, the Left Party, reports The Telegraph. This week, the state parliament in Thuringia narrowly voted to authorize a new coalition with the Left Party at the helm. The three-way coalition also includes the Green Party. The Left Party is viewed as the successor to the Socialist Unity Party which controlled East Germany when it was...

And I quote, “Showing respect even for one's enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view.” Suggesting that we must “empathize” with the likes of ISIS, Boko Harum, al Qaeda, Iran and North Korea to name just a few seems a bit of a stretch.

    Everybody knows that Bernie Sanders, the grandfatherly Independent Senator from Vermont is a socialist. He’s made no secret of it over the years, proudly proclaiming to anyone who will listen. To most people it’s no big deal: “at least he’s honest,” they’ll chuckle. Most people seem to imagine that Grandpa Bernie’s socialism is benign, owing much more to Sweden than Cuba, much more to modern West Germany, than to the old German Democratic Republic. But is Bernie Sanders really being honest? What if he is actually more of a communist? A believer in class struggle? Of crushing the free enterprise...

That offense was selling illegal cigarettes out of their manufacturer’s packaging — so-called “#8220;loosies.” Eric Garner did that, repeatedly, and had been arrested for it previously to the day that he died.However, my information in this case is incomplete, as is the video we have all seen, as is your information. The grand jury may have gotten it wrong when they declined to indict, but they do know more about this...

And like Occupy, the original protest drew a disparate group of people together, not all of whom agreed with one another.

    resident Obama has committed a mind-boggling $3 billion to a new United Nations Green Climate Fund run by officials from Communist nations, a country that appears on the State Department’s list of terrorism-sponsors and an Arab oil-industry chief. As if it weren’t bad enough that our commander-in-chief is giving away money while the nation suffers through a colossal budget deficit, there are countless reasons why this is a lousy idea. First of all, the United Nations is a famously corrupt organization that is already largely funded by Uncle Sam to the tune of billions annually. The exact figure is tough...

One such organization is The World Can’t Wait, an anti-war organization started by Charles Clark Kissinger, a former Students for a Democratic Society member and longtime leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party.The World Can’t Wait’s counter-recruiting program, We Are Not Your Soldiers (WANYS), visits high school classes to, as they claim, “tell the truth about the wars and why the military is really recruiting.”The program brings veterans, often members of Iraqi Veterans Against the War (IVAW), to talk to students about “their on-the-ground experiences in occupying countries, where civilians...

    "I would not be interested in becoming Russia's president if my country was developing normally..."  It did come as a surprise last December, when Vladimir Putin suddenly signed an early release for Mikhail Khodorvkovsky, who was the richest man in Russia ($15B) when he was jailed for 'tax evasion' (read: challenged Putin) in 2003... Hard to tell for sure what the thought process was there -perhaps feeling strong and aiming to soften his image a bit- but Putin at the time explained 'Ten years in prison is a serious punishment' and signed the form that freed Khodorkovsky from a decade of harsh detention....

    There was only one dignitary at the 9/11 ceremony who didn’t place a hand on her heart during “The Star-Spangled Banner” — and it was the same person who once refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. It was Melissa Mark-Viverito, speaker of the City Council. A photo of the anniversary event shows a line of officials, including Gov. Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio and former Mayors Mike Bloomberg and Rudy Giuliani, honoring the anthem by putting their hands over their hearts. Cuomo’s girlfriend, Sandra Lee, has both hands over her heart. But Mark-Viverito stands with her hands clasped in...

    The American who tore up his own tourist visa on landing in North Korea and demanded to be arrested so that he could experience prison life in the communist nation has been sentenced to six years hard labor for entering the country illegally to commit espionage. Matthew Miller, 24, of Bakersfield, California, looked thin and pale at his trial in Pyongyang on Sunday, as he was handed out his sentence. Miller, who looked thin and pale at the trial and was dressed completely in black, is one of three Americans now being held in North Korea.
  • Labour MP: Beat gridlock with a ban on owning a car and force motorists to share vehicles (UK)

    Owning a car should be “outlawed” to force people on to public transport, a senior Labour MP has suggested. Motorists who want to drive should instead be forced to join communal “car clubs” where the cars are shared by drivers and used only when needed. Dr. Alan Whitehead, a Labour MP for Southampton Test and a member of the Energy and Climate Change select committee, said the increase in car ownership would lead to “something approaching a national traffic jam before 2040”. He claimed that radical action would be needed to avoid national gridlock. …
  • The Democrat Party is the NEW Communist Party in America

    Well, not so new, actually. It took the lead Communist in the U.S., Barack Obama, to really bring Communism out of the shadows and put it on full display. Why are they the Communist Party? Don’t listen to their words; look at their deeds. That’s the true measure of a man. In 1984 Gus Hall made a public appearance and stated that he would no longer be a candidate for President under the Communist Party of American party banner. His vice presidential running mater in 1984 was Angela Davis, self-proclaimed Communist and a member of the Black Panthers. Gus had...

    Forget the stuttering he does as the video begins as he laments how no one in Washington is doing their job except him.Who knew the sort of comedic talent Obama turned out to be. He's funny making quotes about how hard he works, doing his job, but the funny part ends up solely as self defecating humor.

    ANDERSON COOPER: ....You said there is a lot happening behind the scenes that people aren't seeing. VAN JONES: Yeah, absolutely. I think that this is a very sophisticated coalition that has formed behind the scenes. You see that this is the theatrics of it. Behind that, you've got young people who are very, very sophisticated. When they say, hands up, don't shoot, that's not just their slogan, that's the name of their coalition. (snip) JONES: What you're beginning to see now is a new generation of African-American leadership. Million Hoodies Movement, Organization For Black Struggle, Michael McBride is emerging as...

    As the outraged community in Ferguson, Missouri, continues to protest the officer-involved shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, radical communist revolutionaries from places like Chicago and New York City are seemingly infiltrating the local demonstrations and allegedly attempting to “incite” riots. A video uploaded on YouTube Tuesday shows Gregory Lee Johnson, a veteran member of the Revolutionary Community Party, riling up a crowd and seemingly discouraging them from listening to police’s advice to calm things down.
