    1. The issue that requires repeated emphasis is infiltration. Right-wing groups first get infiltrated, then they get manipulated. The manipulation does harm to their cause, and either destroys the group or totally marginalizes it. Case study: Malheur Wildlife Refuge. This is difficult for many people to take in. For some reason, a lot of liberty-minded people seem to think that if a guy wears a Three Percent t-shirt and owns a bunch of firearms and mouths appropriate slogans, that he is ipso facto one of them. This is not true, especially after a group grows larger and becomes effective. Then...

    Breitbart ^ | Warner Todd Huston
    Bill and Hillary Clintons daughter, Chelsea, has been spending a lot of time on Twitter during the last year attempting to expound on all manner of topics to show how engaged she is, but her attempt to compare Confederate statues to the worship of the devil did not fare so well. The younger Clinton took to her Twitter account on Thursday to try to mix Biblical themes with Confederate themes, saying, The story of Lucifer-who rebelled against God-is part of many Christians traditions. Then she added that she never saw a statue of Lucifer in a church:

    Susan Snyder has been a curator at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum for the past 26 years. She travels the country, and sometimes Europe, meeting with people who have collections of Holocaust artifacts and memorabilia. Last week, she came to Chicago on a collecting trip and took a few minutes to explain to Forward contributor Aimee Levitt what the museum is looking for and what it does with the material it finds. The museum started collecting before it was built. The first collections came in 1984, but they didnt start building till 1988. In 1989, it put ads in...

    KHATYN, Belarus (JTA) Even by Soviet standards, the massive memorial complex near Minsk to the victims of Nazi atrocities stands out for its immense scale and ambition. Spread across half a million square feet roughly the size of 10 football fields the haunting Khatyn Memorial is essentially a graveyard not for people, but for entire villages wiped out by the Nazis in Belarus. Byelorussia, as it was then known, was one of the few places in Europe where German brutality toward non-Jews matched their anti-Semitic savagery. The memorial features soil from each of the 186 villages razed...

    Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahus son, Yair Netanyahu, is facing backlash from the Left after criticizing both neo-Nazi scum and the thugs of Antifa and BLM in a Facebook post commenting on the violence in Charlottesville, Va. Early Wednesday, Yair said that the growing presence of hard-left radicals on American university campuses posed a more long-term danger than the resurgence of neo-Nazi, Alt-Right racists. To put things in perspective. Im a Jew, Im an Israeli, the neo nazi scums in Virginia hate me and my country. But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out, he wrote. However...

    Matt Drudge (Drudge Report) knows from A-Z that Virginia, Democrat, Governot, Terry McAuiliffe, the Mayor of Charlottesville and the Assistant Racist Mayor of Charlottesville were 100% guilty of conceiving & executing the "out of-hand", unrest, the riots, the murder(s), the loss of life, the injuries and the mayhem caused by allowing the "Hate" of left & right, riots to go forward, unfettered or controlled by the Virginia National Guard, The Virginia State Police and the local police of Charlottesville, Virginia. The details of their direct guilt have been duly noted and validated, in multiple right wing, left wing and independent,...

    ---SNIP--- In March 1871, President ulysses s. grant requested from Congress legislation that would address the problem of KKK violence, which had grown steadily since the group's formation in 1866. Congress responded on April 20, 1871, with the passage of the Ku Klux Klan Act, originally introduced as a bill "to enforce the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment and for other purposes." Section 1 of the act covered enforcement of the Fourteenth Amendment and was later codified, in part, at 42 U.S.C.A. 1983. Section 2 of the act, codified at 42 U.S.C.A. 1985(3), provided civil and criminal penalties...

    I have accurately predicted the Trump POTUS victory right from the start of the recent POTUS campaign. I have been predicting lately that the Democrat Party will suffer the loss of between 8-10 Senate seats & 12-20 House seats in the upcoming "Mid-Term" elections in 2018. I now feel the Democrat Party (with Media help) losses will increase, as I feel the Democrats have lost the entire group of "Southern" states, totally, and possibly the entire country, or close to it. In the state of Virginia, the Democrats will massively lose both the Governorship and the Senate seat held by...

    BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Confederate statues and monuments across the country are coming down. Officials at Beauvoir said the statues would be welcomed at the last home of Jefferson Davis with open arms. We ask the cooperation of any and all fair-minded people to help with Beauvoirs acquisition of these statues, said assistant director Andrea Little in a news release. Many Americans find monuments to the Confederacy offensive and feel they should not be displayed publicly. Officials at Beauvoir believe they have the proper place to display the statues with historical context. Our vision is to include the monuments as...
