    Presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) called for a formal impeachment inquiry into Brett Kavanaugh on Friday in the wake of a new sexual misconduct claim against the Supreme Court justice. “I write to urge the House Judiciary Committee to take appropriate action to investigate recent reports about Associate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and to hold Mr. Kavanaugh accountable for his prior conduct and testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Harris wrote in a letter, dated Sept. 17, to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.). Harris, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which...

    The intent of this article is to reveal the heart of today’s LEFT, and how they truly consider “Rules for Radicals” to be their bible. .....the most famous (infamous) of Alinsky’s quotes with commentary inserted. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)” Think “Brett Kavanaugh” “Control healthcare and you control the people” ~ Saul Alinsky Obama comes to mind, doesn’t he? Bernie Sanders...
  • American Catholic Marxist Bishops' 'Compassionate Concern' For Migrants Doesn't Extend to Home Born

    Catholic Intellectual and Man's Man, Hilaire Belloc, of 'Europe & the Faith' fame, noted the astonishing idea that 'the barbarians at Rome's gates were not trying to destroy Rome, they wanted in to BECOME ROMANS'. The migrants who are dying to get into America, would find no 'there there', no America worth dying to get to, if Marxist-Catholic American Bishops had their way. The American Bishops have just gone around the debates two generations ago during the Cold War, about the primary necessity of PRIVATE PROPERTY to ensure stability of societies for families and children. Now everything is 'compassion for...
  • Scandals: end DOESN'T justify the means! (Machiavelli, Alinsky, Chanakya)

    Scandals in politics have been motivated by personal gain, greed, love of power, lust, or simply a conviction that one's political agenda is so good it justifies bending the law. This ungodly behavior was observed by Machiavelli in The Prince (1513), who recorded the evil tactics of Cesare Borgia: "the ends justifies the means." In 1798, Yale President Timothy Dwight described how the Jacobins acted this way during the French Revolution: "Adultery, assassination, poisoning, and other crimes of the like infernal nature, were taught as lawful ... provided the end was good." Saul Alinsky advocated this in his nefarious Rules...

    If you want to understand the mystery of why we spend so many billions of dollars and get crummy schools, here are some options. You can read a hundred books. You can spend many years earning a Ph.D. in history. You can try to bribe the director of the CIA — or consult a psychic. Alas, you probably won't find the truth. I suggest you spring for the lazy-man, two-word explanation: Red Ed. Arguably, that's what we've got. The almost comical thing about the U.S. is that most people persist in believing that the top educators are harmless, nice, pleasant,...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” host Nicolle Wallace called President Donald Trump “sadistic.” Wallace said, “The Washington Post, out with just some extraordinary reporting on how Donald Trump is micromanaging his border wall’s design. The bollards, or the slats as he prefers to call them, should be painted flat black, a dark hue that would absorb heat in the summer making the metal too hot for climbers to scale. ....She continued, “If any kid in any high school wrote that, they would be sent to the school shrink. I mean, this is sadistic.” She added, “We also know he wants to...
  • Trump is goading Pelosi to completely disinvite him to speak in the House for the SOTU

    President Trump latest action of denying Pelosi use of military planes within hours of departure overseas in light of the shutdown, puts Nancy and the Democrats in a goading box If Pelosi acquiesce and allow Trump to speak before all of Congress in the House then she will appear as groveling and weak as she backs down from her supposedly power move praised by the media. The radical leftists in the House wouldn’t like it either and would slam Pelosi as a weakling and not standing up to Trump. President Trump wins If Pelosi denies Trump to speak before all...

    What exactly is a socialist? You could spend all day studying encyclopedias and not settle anything. Using various definitions, you could probably prove that anybody is or isn't a socialist. So let's talk to a socialist. Ignore the verbiage and look inside his head. When someone announces to the world, "I'm a socialist," what is that person thinking? With this focus, everything becomes simpler. Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude about philosophical and political matters. It's as if they, albeit atheists, are guided...

    It was reported recently that a couple of nuns out in Southern California had ripped off the Catholic school where they worked for many years to the tune of at least $500,000. They spent the money on gambling sprees to Las Vegas, among other pursuits. The habit-less sisters, who were henned up together in a Torrance townhouse inside a gated community (the neighbors, according to the Los Angeles Times, wondered how they afforded their matching Volvos), hail from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet — a “social justice” religious order, naturally. But even richer than that, it is the...

    To hear the news report it, the migrant caravan is just a spontaneous uprising of women and children fleeing Honduran gangs, and the issue is one of Mexico and the U.S. diplomacy finding a way to accommodate them. What's lost is just how hard, hard, left the organizers of what has become this humanitarian disaster are. Even the leftist liberation-theology-oriented rifles-and-cassocks crowd are is getting concerned. Their agenda is hard-left, pro-Chavista, and drawing the fringiest leftwing groups. It's not a humanitarian mission in the slightest to them, it's a by-any-means-necessary political mission. A look at the caravan organizers and their...
  • 12 things to do instead of calling the cops (must be seen to be believed)

    11/20/2018 9:53:46 AM PST · by Borges · 70 replies
    This came from a group called PLOT (Progressive Leaders of Tomorrow). This is apparently not satire. *** Calling the police often escalates situations, puts people at risk, and leads to violence. Anytime you seek help from the police, you're inviting them into your community and putting people who may already be vulnerable into dangerous situations. Sometimes people feel that calling the police is the only way to deal with problems. But we can build trusted networks of mutual aid that allow us to better resolve conflicts ourselves and move towards forms of transformative justice, while keeping police away from our...

    President Donald Trump said he regrets the tone he has used during his first two years in office during an exclusive interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group. "I would like to have a much softer tone. I feel to a certain extent I have no choice, but maybe I do," Trump said. He attributed his tone during his first two years in office to wanting to get things done on his agenda, adding that he could have been softer in his delivery. He said after the midterm election his tone is something he will be working on and he hopes there...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he believed conservatives have embraced “tribal identity politics,” in the style of leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky. Host John Dickerson asked, “You’ve seen some President Trump’s rallies, do those rallies accentuate the things that unite us or are they — do they do something very successful in politics which is sow division in the country? Do you see that happening at his rallies? Ryan said, “Sometimes, yeah...

    No-one yet really knows what the motives are behind mailing packages containing fake pipe-bombs to high-profile members of the Trump ‘resistance‘. Hopefully the FBI will identify the perpetrators quickly. However, given the history of left-wing political activity and their use of fake hate crime as a tool to advance victim politics, the strongest origination likelihood is a person or group connected to left-wing activism. Toward that suspicion there is growing Alinsky-motive visible amid media. CNN is desperate to pin the blame on President Trump. Check out the Alinsky model narrative engineering on display today. It starts out by labeling the...

David Perdue after the Georgia Republican nationalized his phone while campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp: “Give me my phone back, senator” exclaimed the young man who wants the government to take other people’s property: So it’s only OK if the government takes someone else’s property and not your own? WEIRD! Also, these are the people who are pissed at Sen. Perdue right now: It’s going to be a really, really short “Revolution” if this is how they act. Sen. Perdue did quickly...

    Years from now, perhaps only days from now, when people are no longer quite so inebriated with partisanship, those who wish Brett Kavanaugh well and those who wish him ill will probably agree on one thing: His defiant September 27 statement denying the charges leveled against him in the course of his Supreme Court confirmation is the defining speech of our time. Kavanaugh rejected outright Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he had jumped her and gagged her at a party 36 years ago, when both were in high school. He denied knowingly having met her. None of the witnesses she...

    Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is...
