  • Mrs Don-o's Letter to a "Consistent Life" (pro-life, anti-violence) Group About Charlottesville

    Responding to this editorial: Protesting the Racist Violence in Charlottesville Which linked to, end endorsed, this extreme anti-Trump view from BBC: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40948812 Hello Consistent Life Friends, This is worth a look: http://hotair.com/archives/2017/08/18/poll-plurality-believes-far-right-groups-not-mostly-blame-violence-charlottesville/ I have to say the CL response to the Charlottesville Violence did not display your usual careful, disciplined sense of accuracy and justice. It seems strange to me that when the alt-right guy's car plowed into the crowd, causing horrible injury and death, it took a nanosecond for the media to determine that it was deliberate and motivated by race-hatred, an instant judgment apparently accepted by CL as...
  • (Vanity) Thoughts on Bannon's Banishment

    Free Republic ^ | Aug 18, 2017 | grey_whiskers
    By now, even those without two brain cells to rub together, have heard the news that President Trump's Chief of Strategy, Steve Bannon, is out of the White House. Initial reports were that he was fired; later, reports came out that he tendered his resignation some ten or eleven days ago, and that he and Gen. Kelly (the new chief of staff) mutually agreed that this would be his last day. (Not to worry about Bannon, though; by the early evening, it was announced that he had landed back at Breitbart News from whence he came.) Reaction from the usual...
  • Person Strikes Car Before Hitting Gas: Did Charlottesville driver panic?

    Video seems to show the car being hit with a flag before accelerating into the crowd. I know that is certainly not justification for running down protesters, but it does present some evidence that the driver could use in his defense. Overall, this whole protest was obviously staged to be a cockfight. It's really a miracle that there weren't more deaths and serious injuries in Charlottesville last weekend.
  • State Of New Jersey Declares Antifa “Domestic Terrorism” Group

    08/18/2017 11:52:08 AM PDT · by Thistooshallpass9 · 14 replies
    Members of the “Antifa” movement claim to be anti-fascist but they act like fascists all the time. They use violence and intimidation to silence people they don’t like and destroy private property. Now they’ve been declared a terror group in the state of New Jersey. This is from the New Jersey Homeland Security website: Anarchist Extremists: Antifa June 12, 2017 Domestic Terrorism Anti-fascist groups, or “Antifa,” are a subset of the anarchist movement and focus on issues involving racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism, as well as other perceived injustices. Self-described Antifa groups have been established across the United States and in...
  • CONFUSION: Maxine Waters accuses Ben Carson of being ‘white-wing nationalist’

    The American Mirror ^ | August 18, 2017 | Kyle Olson
    Maxine Waters’s latest rant against Donald Trump and his administration was so unhinged, it amounted to word spittle that could be hear on any street corner in L.A. Appearing before the Los Angeles Community Review Board, Waters launched into Trump, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Complaining there is “uncertainty” because of the Trump administration, Waters said, “Mr. Mnuchin, who is the Treasury Secretary, who is responsible for over 36,000 foreclosures in this area, is now the Secretary of the Treasury,” repeating herself. “Standing next to him just yesterday, or day before yesterday, I’m getting these days...

    Why does America honor an accused rapist? That's what Juanita Broaddrick wants to know. Speaking exclusively to The American Mirror, Broaddrick denounced the lack of efforts to uproot a monument to Bill Clinton in South Dakota, the man she says raped her in a Little Rock, Arkansas hotel room in 1978. "I would like to 'personally' use a sledgehammer on it, with the help of Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones," Broaddrick says.

Last Friday, the government said its first reading on the gross domestic product in the second quarter was a 2.6 percent growth pace, which was 0.2 point below Atlanta Fed's final estimate.

    The Nazis and White Supremacists as one faction and the Antifa and Black Lives Matter as the other faction are two sides of the same coin. Expressing this is what has gotten the president in trouble with the politically correct media and their dupes. His point is that too many are are purposefully ignoring the real meaning of the other equally dangerous set of thugs who have caused violence in Portland, Berkeley, Ferguson, Evergreen College and at least half of the problem in Charlottesville. If the Nazis are the spawn of Hitler, then Antifa and BLM are the spawn of...

    Gun Watch ^ | 13 August, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    President Teddy Roosevelt was a big fan of silencers. The only silencers available to him were Maxim silencers. A silencer for his take-down model 94 Winchester 30-30, above, cost $9.70 in 1909.  He used the rifle frequently on his Sagamore Hill estate on Long Island, New York.  It was the classic use of a suppressed rifle. He used it to cull pests without disturbing his neighbors, the Duponts and the Tiffanys . From rarewinchesters.com: Whenever Winchester introduced a new model, Roosevelt was quick to put it through its paces. He acquired an 1894 similar to all his other rifles...

    A Janitor's View ^ | August 16, 2017 | reasonmclucus
    Jesse Washington has reported that many dark skinned Americans recognize that they are not "African" Americans in spite of what some racists say. Th e term "African-American" perpetuates the principle tenet of Southern racism: "part black, all black" under the "one drop rule". Those who use the term are in effect segregating Americans with dark complexions from the rest of the population they may be related to. Those who use the term believe that those with dark complexions should only be able to claim their African ancestors and should forget about ancestors who came from Europe, North America or Asia...

    A group of anti-Confederate protesters aren’t happy enough with the declaration by the city of Memphis that it wants to dig up and move the remains of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest. They want it done now. A group surrounded a shovel Wednesday and ceremoniously removed a chunk of grass and soil. “We are going to bring the back hoe, the tractors and the men with the equipment to raise Bedford Forrest from the soil of Memphis,” Isaac Richmond with the “Commission on Religion and Racism” declared to awaiting TV cameras, CBS 3 reported.

    Nothing happens in a vacuum Of course the current North Korean brouhaha is all Trump’s fault at least according to the propaganda megaphone and prime time indoctrination machine that is the ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBCNPR Cartel. But then again according to these Alt-Left AntiFa stenographers what isn’t? To be effective all current events must happen in a vacuum. That way the spinmeisters can work their editorial magic and make everything fit their narrative.

    Assault against history goes way beyond the confederacy. It has become identity politics on steroids. The way to destroy liberty is to destroy the history, especially if the hero in history is a dead white European male. . . The liberal left’s desire to tear down any and all memories of the Confederate States of America is reaching a crescendo. Statues are being torn down. State flags are being redesigned and burned. According to the Democrats, and their Black Lives Matter brethren, all vestiges of the dark time when the Southern States practiced slavery must be stricken from the record....

    He would “donate his share of the profits from Art of The Deal to the National Immigration Law Center?” Thirty years later?! By today’s goosey-loosey publishing standards, anybody—with even the slightest claim to fame— can write a book with all but a guarantee that it will be gobbled up by their bored lessers whose moment in the sun never seems to come. Political books draw the same kind of audience as television viewers who contend “I saw it on t.v. so it MUST be true.”

    Late last week, U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., tweeted that the NRA is increasingly becoming a domestic security threat. Her exact words: I'm just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can't ignore that. Rice’s proclamation does two things: First, it makes her but the latest in a long line of liberal politicians who have decided to attack the NRA instead of dealing with examples of leftist-inspired violence uncovered by the NRA. Secondly, it insults the whole of NRA's membership, as the NRA is not an abstraction but a...

    Viewers beware: Scarborough and Tapper aren’t just forcing the president into their new narrative, they’re putting all those who voted for Trump into the same one The Russia collusion conspiracy against President Donald Trump wasn’t working. So the progressive left/mainstream media cabal began writing the president they live to hate into into another narrative, one that would be so stunning, it would make us forget that they dropped the Russian ruse. It exploded on Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia and life would never be the same. The POTUS is now—officially—courtesy of their spanking new narrative the president of...

    After three days of being called a racist, nazi, nazi sympathizer and klansman, and hearing the president called a racist, I am compelled to provide this compendium facts and opinions which explain what the f--- is happening. The primary focus of the democrats and their minions like George Soros-funded BLM and ANTIFA and Obama’s rebel organization, Organization for Action ( a shill to raise hell and make him and his wife richer, using the Clinton Foundation model.) is something called The Resistance, in which every dem from Hillary on down claims to be a devoted member.

    ‘Repeal and Replace Obamacare’ never stood a chance of getting past Mitch "The Blocker" McConnell and is probably doomed this fall in spite of any further praiseworthy Trumpian efforts to help America's middle class escape a law which destroys our health and drains our bank accounts. After all, the Senate Majority Leader has some very close ties to special interest healthcare dollars. Add to that the fact that his wife, new US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao McConnell, “…received $50,000 in 2015 for a five-minute speech to the political wing of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, previously called a cult-like terrorist group" by the...
