Sen. Ted Cruz Says Celebrities are Hypocrites on Gun Control | TMZ

It All Started Here

Liberal Ghouls Project Their Failures onto Patriotic Americans

I’m usually reticent about writing on the subject of mass shootings especially those committed by teenage sociopaths. What can one say about these acts of evil? Apparently plenty if you’re a libtard.

As soon as the news broke on this heinous crime, gun-grabbers were hyperventilating with excitement as the body count climbed in Parkland, Florida. These ghouls were quick to unholster their usual bromides: Ban assault weapons! It’s the NRA’s fault! We must do something!

These acts of evil have become endemic and why is that? Prior to the 1990’s I cannot recall school shootings. The only one close was the University of Texas tower massacre back in 1966 and that’s it.

Something has happened to our culture. Something evil has been brewing for a long time and the stench is emanating from a liberal counterculture that has forsaken Christian morality and has no respect for our institutions and the American creed.

It’s bad enough that we have to sit by and watch liberals turn our culture into a cesspool, but we also have to endure their projections of blame. I’ve never seen a people so clueless about the hell they’ve created. They’re in complete denial.

The Charlotte Observer’s editorial board once again gives flesh to this rotting corpse. Billy Maddalon, a contributing columnist at the Disturber, not only danced around the dead at Parkland, he also took this opportunity to mock the notion of American exceptionalism. Here is an except:

Our history books teach us America was once the best in the world at virtually everything. True or not, we have always clung to a belief in “American exceptionalism” – that we’re different, better, smarter, because God wants it to be that way. It’s blatant national narcissism. To seem rather than to be. And it’s slowly destroying our nation.

Mr. Maddalon not only trashed our country, he has the nerve to project liberal failures on the rest of us. Take a look at this:

America’s current reality is sobering: Our expensive health system is one of the worst underperformers in the industrialized world (17th out of 37); Our education system is one of the worst (25th out of 37); Our mental health systems are fragmented and underfunded, with an opioid epidemic raging out of control in our rural communities. We also are the most violent country in the industrialized world (with gun homicide rates that are 25 times higher than our peers).

What ideology has taken over our healthcare and educational systems? It sure as hell isn’t conservatives. We tried to stop Obamacare.  And if I’m not mistaken the cities that have the highest homicide rates are ran by Democrats. You want to point fingers about this opioid epidemic? There is a direct correlation between the expansion of Medicaid and this crises. Again, can you say Obamacare, Mr. Maddalon? Hmmmm…

Mr. Maddalon tied his anti-American screed with the Parkland shooting in a nice, little bow with the following:

Gun violence has become a metaphor, a symptom of a much more insidious problem. We’ve somehow convinced ourselves that this, like so many other issues, is just going to magically go away, that the gun violence on our streets and mass shootings in houses of worship, night clubs, theaters, universities, schools and malls is just some kind of phase we’re going through.

All of these problems persist because we refuse to learn from what other countries have done to solve these same challenges. Remember, we’re different, better, smarter, we’re exceptional. Screw the facts!

The facts, Mr. Maddalon, is that everyone of the problems you brought forth were created by liberals. Liberals, like you, have trashed our culture and our country. You’ve contaminated the minds of our youth with hatred for Christian morality and the American creed. And you have the audacity to lecture us about learning from other countries? Why don’t you and your fellow libtards learn from your mistakes and stop projecting your failures unto the rest of us.

Globalist Villains Bash Trump at Econo-Con

Mad globalists from around the world traveled to a region known for its tolerance of women and non-Muslims for a three day summit of Yankee bashing and outright lunacy. Self-loathing Americans such as Robert DeNiro joined in on the fun at the 2018 Super Villain Econo-Con.

President Trump was the foil for these globalist villains because you simply cannot obtain a one-world government without the United States. How else are unscrupulous politicians and mad scientists going to blackmail the denizens of planet Earth with annihilation without the world’s lone superpower. Here is an excerpt from WND:

This is a very anti-American three-day globalist summit at the Madinat Jumeirah and sponsored by the United Arab Emirates.

Angel Gurria, the head of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, kicked things off by characterizing President Donald Trump’s economic policies – the ones that have created jobs and prosperity while cutting taxes – “an excellent example of the kinds of things we shouldn’t be doing.”

Contrast this with the 2016 summit at which President Obama provided a video greeting.

Trump and the U.S. were pilloried for hostility to trade agreements and fighting climate change.

Econo-Con had a futuristic-like comic book atmosphere with characters who believe they are actual cyborgs.

There were more arcane presentations, too, on the opening day of the summit – like one by the Museum of the Future in which guests learned that artificial intelligence, or AI, will evolve into hybrid intelligence, combining the powers of the human mind and intelligent machines.

Another exhibit predicts a future UAE Cabinet that includes ministries for “extraterrestrial affairs” and “human potential.”

A tour guide explained hit on perhaps the main point, saying AI is “not scary like Terminators.”

Then there was Neil Harbisson, billed as the world’s first “cyborgist.” What does that mean? He shows a passport photo in which he wears head antenna that the British Government accepts as part of him. He explains it’s high time that the governments should accept that some people will be “part-technology, part-human” in the future.

“I have an antenna that is implanted inside my head, which allows me to extend my perception of reality beyond the visual spectrum,” he explains. “I can sense infrared and ultraviolet, and I also have an internet connection in my head that allows me to receive colors from other parts of the world, or connect to satellites so I can send colors from space.”

Who needs comic books when you can have the real thing at Econo-Con.

A Disenfranchised Conservative in the State of North Carolina

Libtards and common sense mix as well as oil and water and that also sums up my emotions when I read their editorials; you can’t help but laugh and be angry at their nonsensical platitudes and conclusions. The liberal brain is without a doubt a dangerous and defective specimen.

A recent editorial published by the News and Observer is a case in point. Here we have a liberal editor spewing the usual talking points about voter suppression and disenfranchisement of blacks through redistricting. Only in the libtard world can redistricting be considered disenfranchisement.

The mental defective in this case, Gene Nichol, can’t understand why our General Assembly spent $7 million trying to protect their constitutionally mandated rights from a panel of politically motivated judges who are trying to force their master plan upon the citizens of North Carolina. Here is an excerpt:

I had thought maybe Lewis would begin by apologizing for costing the state what the Winston-Salem Journal reported last month to be north of $7 million in legal fees to defend his path-breaking experiments in electoral suppression. Alas, it was not to be.

Instead, he opened by blaming Obama. Really. For me, I missed the connection. Then I thought, maybe he meant he was so livid at having to countenance the likes of Holder and Obama for eight years, he simply had to do something. Denying North Carolina black folks their constitutional rights was the only thing close at hand.

Then Lewis turned to the “all they care about is electing Democrats” shtick. To be honest, at that point I momentarily lost consciousness.

Mr. Nichol, having read your editorial, it’s quite obvious you’ve never obtained consciousness. I have a question, how is mandating voter registration in a timely basis and showing voter ID considered suppression? As far as I’m concerned, if you’re that incompetent that you can’t follow these simple guidelines then you shouldn’t be voting. And since when has redistricting become a violation of constitutional rights?

If I were to follow the logic of this libtard, I too should be considered disenfranchised. I once resided in a conservative district until the General Assembly pushed my neighborhood out of the republican 9th and into the Marxist 12th.

Hey! I’ve been disenfranchised! My vote is being suppressed by a bunch of Marxist scumbags hellbent on deluding my vote! What about my rights? Where is my representation? Why is my voice not being heard?

Will conservatives get a sympathetic voice from the likes of a Gene Nichol? Will conservatives get the same amount of ink when their voices are suppressed by an army of lip-smacking teat squawkers? We all know the answer to that question.

Ami Presents: Communist Manifesto or Democratic Party Platform?

Americans Doing a Job Mexicans Refuse to Do

H/T:  Knuckledraggin

Forget Russia, We Need a Special Council to Investigate George Soros

Liberals are constantly pushing the narrative that Russians are behind all of this vitriol and dissent. Does anyone truly believe that? Yes, they staged a couple of rallies and did a whole lot of trolling, but can anyone say these actions truly interfered with our elections? Did the Russians change anyone’s mind? Did they use the courts to force redistricting? Are they trying to takeover our the electoral process with a secretary of states project? The answer is no.

However, I am aware of a Nazi collaborator who has taken over a political party and using it to advance his agenda. This man is for globalism, open borders, racial division, a complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. That man’s name is George Soros.

Wherever you find turmoil in this country whether it be riots in the streets, our courts, or in the halls of Congress, you can bet George Soros is financing it. For instance, take a look at what is happening to red states and their congressional districts. You’ll notice there are a whole lot of lawsuits over so-called gerrymandering and almost everyone of these plaintiffs are funded by a George Soros organization. Not only are plaintiffs such as The League of Women Voters tainted with Soros money, so is the master plan by Nathaniel Persily which the federal courts foisted upon North Carolina’s General Assembly. Here is an excerpt from American Lens outlining the tentacles of George Soros in this grand redistricting scheme:

About the Special Master

Persily has been a Special Master in multiple other states, including Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland and New York. He was a “Senior Research Director” appointed by Barack Obama to his Presidential Commission on Election Administration.

Buried inside Persily’s resume are two amicus briefs he filed on behalf of the openly liberal biased Brennan Center Center for Justice.

Brief Amicus Curiae of Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law in Support of

Appellees, Utah v. Evans, 536 U.S. 452 (2002) (No. 01-714).

Brief Amicus Curiae of Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law in Support of

Respondents, Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000) (No. 00-949).

The Brennan Center for Justice has made a name for itself following the mission of their namesake, the late Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan. The Brennan center has made a cottage industry of advocating for judicial activism by ‘legislating from the Bench’.

The Brennan Center has been a regular recipient of millions of dollars in the form of grants from George Soros’ Tides Foundation and Open Society Institute.

Between 1999 and 2003, Soros’ Open Society Foundation gave the Brennan Center nearly $3.3 million dollars. This is the same time frame NC’s new Special Master, Nathan Persily, was filing amicus briefs on their behalf.

We don’t need a special council on Russian interference in our elections. What we need is a special council looking into the subversive activities of George Soros and his Democratic Party apparatchiks.


N.C. Governor Roy Cooper Caught with Illegal Slush Fund

Democrats are notorious for setting up slush funds as a means to advance their political agenda. The Obama administration extorted money from corporations and used those proceeds in the EPA, Justice Department and various other agencies to seed special interest groups who would then sue the very agencies who funded them. These lawsuits were as choreographed as the Ziegfield Follies and they did it without showing any leg, thanks to the progressive-media industrial complex.

North Carolina’s Governor Roy Cooper just got caught emulating this paradigm. Of course our corrupt, local media didn’t report this until the Civitas Institute - a conservative think tank - filed an ethics complaint and the Carolina Journal reported it. Here is an excerpt:

The $57.8 million discretionary fund the Atlantic Coast Pipeline operators planned to pay to an escrow Gov. Roy Cooper would control was in fact negotiated between the pipeline’s operators and a series of private parties. It remains unclear whether Cooper’s involvement was legal.

In his weekly syndicated column (link to text here), Tom Campbell, host of the UNC-TV public-affairs program “NC SPIN,” said the agreement was worked out in July 2017 at the offices of the North Carolina Farm Bureau and, presumably, presented to Cooper later. Cooper’s attorney signed the agreement on the governor’s behalf, but it did not receive legislative approval.

Of course, Governor Cooper didn’t get legislative approval. Do they ever? That’s why they call it a slush fund.

The editorial board at the Charlotte Observer is having a hard time justifying this sordid affair. But as usual, they soldier through. Here is an excerpt:

Companies don’t typically fork over tens of millions of dollars voluntarily. And while there is no proof the permit approval was contingent on the fund, it appears that way to many. At a minimum, the discussions were clearly going on simultaneously.

But perhaps Cooper’s biggest mistake was putting the fund under his personal control. The Memorandum of Understanding creating it says “the funds shall be allocated pursuant to the guidelines and directives set forth in a subsequent executive order” to be issued by Cooper.

That understandably alarmed Republicans. Cooper assured everyone after the fact that he never intended to personally decide where the money would go, and that third-party experts would make those decisions, but that’s not spelled out in the agreement. It should have been. And while at least one intended use of the money – environmental mitigation – is sound, the others – economic development and renewable energy – are broad enough to leave room for pork-barrel spending.

The Constitution says that state funds can be appropriated only by the General Assembly. These looked a lot like state funds, and Cooper could have negotiated the fund but let the legislature appropriate the money for the purposes spelled out in the agreement.

All that said, Republicans have gone way overboard by suggesting corruption. There is no indication the agreement would have directly benefited Cooper in any way. And legislators may hurt the environment in the pipeline’s counties by moving the money from its original purposes to public schools. For all the Cain that Republicans raise, the state is clearly better off with the energy companies paying $58 million to the state than not. Would Republicans have preferred that the state not receive that money?

And there it is. I would prefer companies were able to conduct business in North Carolina without being shaken down by corrupt politicians trying to shove their progressive agendas down our throats. But I guess that’s asking too much just as it’s too much to ask this rag to stop apologizing for corrupt politicians that have “D’s” behind their name.


Lies Libtards Try to Tell Me

Every year for Christmas, without fail, my libtard neighbor gifts me a book written by a left-wing nutter who has an axe to grind. These books are nothing more than catnip for self-loathing Americans who - instead of leaving for greener, socialist pastures - would rather stay and bitch about our “racist and greedy country.”

Last years featured little-red book reader was Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen. Of course, this book was praised by other commies such as Howard Zinn and Pravda publications such the San Francisco Chronicle, but no one should be surprised by that.

Will I read this nonsense? Of course not, I’m not going to waste my time reading propaganda while I have other books with historical import that serves my current interest. And my neighbor knows this. However, we go through this dance every year and every year I email him an article that refutes his nonsensical and absurd publications. This years featured article is from the Abbeville Institute. Here is an excerpt:

Propaganda. It’s a well-known word defined as “information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.” And, I might add, used for the purpose of demonizing and destroying one’s enemies. The South has had more than its fair share of time in the crosshairs of Yankee propaganda, and one of the most well-known anti-Southern propagandists is James W. Loewen.

But let us not kid ourselves, soft-pedal the truth, or play nice. Loewen is a great deal more than simply a propagandist; he’s a moral crusader seeking to scrub American history of anything that does not fit his progressive worldview and purge our country from its abominable sin of racism. His writings, including the famous, or rather infamous, book Lies My Teacher Told Me, which David Horowitz has called an “extreme and ill-informed polemic,” and the anti-South diatribe, The Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader: The “Great Truth” About the “Lost Cause,” as well as numerous articles and columns, are, without a doubt, the greatest examples of cherry-picking evidence one is likely to ever encounter.

One does not have to dig deeply into Loewen’s writings to discover that he hates the South, loathes Southerners, and despises our culture, history, and traditions. His world revolves around tearing down our region and our people in books, speeches, and articles in major magazines and newspapers.

Consider this Loewen gem about the “Lost Cause” that appeared in the Washington Post in 2015: “The Confederates won with the pen (and the noose) what they could not win on the battlefield: the cause of white supremacy and the dominant understanding of what the war was all about. We are still digging ourselves out from under the misinformation they spread, which has manifested in our public monuments and our history books.” With such venomous anti-South poison dripping from his acid pen, finding suitable major publications, like the Post, is never a problem.

Although from Illinois, Loewen, at least by his attitudes, surely must emanate from Puritan and Yankee stock. He earned a Ph.D. from Harvard in sociology, not history, and his research field was Chinese-Americans in Mississippi, hardly qualifying one to extrapolate on true Southern history and culture. But, as Southerners well know, self-righteous Puritans believe themselves more knowledgeable than anyone else on any given topic, especially the South.

We have more than our fair share of Southern haters living in Dixie. I wonder what keeps them here or for that fact in the United States? I asked my neighbor that very question, but never get a straight answer. Go figure.


California High School Bans National Anthem

California is the vanguard for self-loathing Americans who want to fundamentally transform our country. You’ll be hard pressed to find a state as vocal in opposition to our values, culture and laws as this sanctuary utopia. 

However, we must take into account the ones with the biggest mouths are usually the coastal elites and their drones who parrot nonsensical platitudes. This corrosion has trickled down into their their high schools.

Student leaders at a California high school have banned America’s “outdated and racially offensive” national anthem from being played at school rallies.

The Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon, in the San Francisco Bay Area, blacklisted “The Star-Spangled Banner” over a third verse that is rarely ever played.

“It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” wrote Ariyana Kermanizadeh in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student body.”

The verse in questions includes the line “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of the flight or the gloom of the grave.”

I’m sure it was a libtard teacher who brought this verse to their attention and without a doubt instructed these students to ban the national anthem. I’m also quite sure these same libtards are instructing these student leaders in the finer points of governing by shoving their ideology down the throats of others. How do I know that? Read the following.

But Amir Udler, a senior at the school, isn’t having it. Udler told the California, which was first to report the story, that the decision is disregarding the sentiments of most of the students at the school.

“It comes from a very disrespectful place,” he said. “[The decision] is disenfranchising the majority of the school who loves the country.”

Fox News opinion columnist Todd Starnes urges his listeners to contact the school board. He asked, “Where are the grown-ups in charge of this school?”

“The Star Spangled Banner may have survivied the bombs bursting in air, but it may not be able to withstand the rampaging mob of politically incorrect inclusivists,” Starnes wrote.

Where are the adults? They’re the ones pushing this crap.


The Night the Russian Collusion Narrative Died

The Russian collusion narrative has finally died. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein triumphantly declared he has indicted 13 Russian trolls who interfered with our elections. How did they interfere? Why, they sowed discord amongst the American people. Here is an excerpt from Fox News:

The 37-page indictment was signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating Russian meddling in the election and potential coordination with the Trump campaign.

Responding to the indictments, RNC spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany said the information released by Rosenstein "unravels" the narrative pushed by the left since President Trump's victory.

"Today marks the day the Democrats' Russia collusion conspiracy theory unraveled," McEnany said on "Outnumbered Overtime."

She said the Russians were also organizing for Bernie Sanders and turned their activities against Trump after the election.

"This is astonishing. ... Democrats deceived this country and they were caught today.

Since sowing discord is a crime can we expect indictments to be handed down to Barack Obama, the Clintons and the whole Democratic Party apparatus? These people are the biggest dividers in the country. I don’t think we have a prison big enough to house all of these felons.

Billions in Remittances Leave the United States

Illegal aliens aren’t just taking our jobs and reducing our wages, they’re also sending billions of U.S. dollars out of the country Here is an excerpt from PoliZette:

Immigrants in the United States in 2016 sent home more than $138 billion — a sum that exceeds the entire gross domestic product of Kuwait — according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.

That sum accounted for about a quarter of the $574 billion that migrants in countries around the world sent to friends and relatives in their home nations.

Sending Money Home
Top destinations for money sent outside the U.S. by immigrants
Mexico$28.1 billion
China$15.4 billion
India$10.7 billion
Philippines$10.5 billion
Guatemala$6.8 billion
Vietnam$6.7 billion
Nigeria$5.7 billion
El Salvador$4.2 billion
Dominican Republic$4.1 billion
Honduras$3.4 billion
All countries$138.165 billion

In 2017, remittances surpassed Mexico’s oil revenue. Is it any wonder our southern neighbor is screaming and hollering about President Trump’s border wall?


Lawless Judge Imposes Lawless DACA on American People

Why am I uncomfortable about Washington D.C. reforming of our immigration laws?  Everything I’ve read so far has demonstrated our so-called representatives are not serious about stopping this third-world invasion.  Congress has the necessary tools to protect our country, but they are too damn feckless and cowardly to implement them. 

If we’re to have real immigration reform, Congress must deal with a branch of government that is largely responsible for legitimizing illegal aliens.  For example, a federal judge just ruled that an unlawful edict by President Obama must be reinstated.  Here is an excerpt from the Washington Times:

A federal judge in New York ruled Tuesday that the government must fully restart the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty and accept brand new applicants as well as renewals, throwing a potential wrench in the ongoing debate over the fate of “Dreamers” on Capitol Hill.

Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis said the administration does have the power to revoke DACA, but it must give a sound reason for doing so — and the Homeland Security Department’s September 2017 rationale fell far short of what is required in that regard.

He even used Mr. Trump’s own tweets as evidence that the DACA program was ended precipitously, pointing to President Trump's claims that he could “revisit this issue” as proof the program could have been continued.

Judge Garaufis is the second federal judge to rule Mr. Trump’s aides bungled the phaseout — but his decision is the most wide-ranging, ordering the government to not only allow those already in the program to renew their applications but also ordering the government to accept new applications.

This judge just demonstrated that Congress has no legislative role when it comes to immigration and naturalization and that our current president is forbidden to enforce existing laws.  Need we remind these judges that DACA is not a law, but rather an edict promulgated by a megalomaniac with a pen and phone?

If we're to save our nation and the rule of law, Congress has to reactivate Article III which specifically defines the court’s original jurisdiction and that all appellate considerations are to be regulated by Congress; therefore, our elected representatives have the authority to declare federal judges have no jurisdiction when it comes to illegal aliens and immediate deportation is warranted upon arrest.  Foreign nationals who come into this country without authorization are not afforded due process. 

Sceptics will say, the 14th Amendment states otherwise.  No it doesn’t!  Section V specifically states Congress shall enforce the provisions in this article; not a black-robed thug with a messianic complex.

If Congress were circumspect, they would learn from the mistakes of Simpson - Mazzoli.  And one of those mistakes was allowing the federal judiciary to run roughshod over our immigration laws.

ICE Targets Northern California, MAGA-Style

ICE is targeting Northern California businesses, MAGA-Style. It seems only fitting that this state and particularly that region, which has been the vanguard of this illegal alien invasion, should get the stinky end of the stick. Here is an excerpt from Breitbart:

Businesses received notices of inspection from ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents from Monday through Wednesday, ICE Spokesman James Schwab told Breitbart News. The notices gave each business three days from the date of being served to comply and produce I-9 documents.

Typically HSI takes the documents and conducts inspection for compliance. While the businesses were not initially identified, they were located within the San Francisco responsibility jurisdiction, including San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Jose.

Schwab said that HSI has increased enforcement activities to “enforce the laws that prohibit businesses from hiring illegal workers.” ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan has made known plans to increase the level of HSI worksite enforcement actions.

California’s attorney general has declared anyone who cooperates with ICE will be prosecuted. I believe it’s time Republicans in Congress step-up their game and invoke the 14th Amendment by taking away congressional districts and reducing Electoral College votes. They should also enforce the provision that disallows public office to anyone who defies federal laws.

Game on, assholes!



Former Assistant to FBI Director Martyrs Himself for the Deep State

James Campbell, an assistant to FBI Director James Comey, has decided to leave the institution his boss and other upper-echelon officials have corrupted. This deep state martyr penned an op-ed lamenting “politicalization” by a bunch of dastardly Republicans hellbent on destroying his beloved bureau. Here is an excerpt from his op-ed in the New York Times:

After more than a decade of service, which included investigating terrorism, working to rescue kidnapping victims overseas and being special assistant to the director, I am reluctantly turning in my badge and leaving an organization I love. Why? So I can join the growing chorus of people who believe that the relentless attacks on the bureau undermine not just America’s premier law enforcement agency but also the nation’s security. My resignation is painful, but the alternative of remaining quiet while the bureau is tarnished for political gain is impossible.

A small number of my current and retired colleagues have said that we should simply keep our heads down until the storm passes. I say this with the greatest respect: They are wrong. If those who know the agency best remain silent, it will be defined by those with partisan agendas.

Efforts to defend against collusion will only lead to corrosion if partisans succeed in convincing the American people their FBI cannot be trusted. 

What he really means is an attack on his boss and fellow deep staters. He continues:

A small number of my current and retired colleagues have said that we should simply keep our heads down until the storm passes. I say this with the greatest respect: They are wrong. If those who know the agency best remain silent, it will be defined by those with partisan agendas.

F.B.I. agents are dogged people who do not care about the direction of political winds. But to succeed in their work, they need public backing. Scorched-earth attacks from politicians with partisan goals now threaten that support, raising corrosive doubts about the integrity of the F.B.I. that could last for generations.

As opposed to the scorched-earth attacks by your boss and other Democratic Party operatives that infest your beloved bureau? But of course, Mr. Campbell has an excuse for them too.

Do F.B.I. agents make mistakes? You bet. They are human beings. Because they are not infallible, the bureau is subject to a robust system of checks and balances, including its internal affairs division, the Department of Justice inspector general, congressional committees and the courts. These watchdogs ensure that personal opinions regarding politics, causes and candidates do not affect investigations. The system also provides an outlet for any investigator who suspects malfeasance on the part of the agency’s leadership to make those concerns known.

Really? I don’t know how many times we’ve watched Obama’s bureaucrats stonewall, obfuscate and outright ignore congressional oversight committees and their request. Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for these very actions and he later bragged about it. He wore it as a badge of honor.

As for the Department of Justice and the judiciary… please. Once again, these institutions are infested with progressives whose only regard for the rule of law is the one that advances their agenda.

Mr. Campbell don’t sit there and lecture us on the infallibility of the system when the previous administration, and your boss, actively aided and abetted Hillary Clinton by ignoring her violations of the Espionage Act while at the same time spying on her political opponents.

It will be a monumental task to repair the damage progressives have inflicted upon our institutions. People need to be fired and others like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, James Comey and all the other confederates who conspired to violate the 4th Amendment rights of American citizens and used their office to undermine a presidential election should face criminal charges. And I wouldn’t be surprised that James Campbell, an assistant to FBI Director James Comey, is complicit in these same nefarious and subversive activities.


North Carolina's Biggest Employer Begs for More Taxpayer Money

Denizens and boosters of Charlotte were shocked and disappointed when they found out the Queen City didn’t make the top 20 final destination for Amazon’s HQ2. And as you can expect, the navel gazing is boundless. The “uptown” crowd cannot believe this prestigious company could’ve easily overlooked a world-class city such as ours.

What are we to do?! 

As you can expect, the usual mantra is investment - investment - investment with an emphasis on higher education in the Charlotte region. Here is an excerpt from an op-ed by the chancellor of UNCC Charlotte begging for more money.

We’ve learned through the Amazon HQ2 experience that Charlotte’s strengths might not be compelling to everyone. But we also have learned that even more substantial investment is necessary to help strengthen UNC Charlotte’s higher education leadership position within our region’s economy.

Our region’s relative lack of higher education horsepower, as indicated by enrollment, is significant when compared to the “Amazon top 20.” Public and private research universities serving the Amazon finalist cities have combined enrollments ranging from about 51,000 students in Nashville to New York’s nearly 350,000. As the only research institution in our region, UNC Charlotte’s enrollment of 29,317 trails far behind.Our ability to deliver prepared graduates is not much of an issue when recruiting major companies like Met Life, Sealed Air, and Allstate with much smaller local employment bases. But the gap is significant when attempting to feed the talent needs of the behemoth that is Amazon.

I wonder if the average North Carolinian knows who the biggest employer is in our state. I was shocked to find out it was our university system. Here is a map of the biggest employers in each state. Take notice of the top three industries.

BI Graphics The largest employers in each state listIn 22 states, Walmart is king.Diana Yukari/Business Insider

So the biggest employers are the healthcare industry, university systems and Walmart. Amazon wasn’t even the biggest employer in the state of Washington; that designation goes to Boeing.

If anything, Amazon has demonstrated that opportunism is abound when it comes to businesses, prospective cities and bloated university systems. We can never have enough “investment” when tax dollars are concerned.


Things That Could Have Been

I too would've marched for that.

Deep State Threatens President Trump and Republican Congressmen

The deep state is freaking out. People who thought they could operate in the shadows without consequence are being exposed and they don’t like it. Some are lashing out. Fox News reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened members of the House Intel Committee if they released a damning memo.

Gregg Jarrett: I can tell you a congressional source tells me that Rod Rosenstein in a meeting three weeks ago threatened Chairman Nunes and members of Congress he was going to subpoena their texts and messages because he was tired of dealing with the intel committee. That’s threats and intimidation.

A former CIA counterterrorism official threatened President Trump.

Former CIA counterterrorism official Phil Mudd: The FBI people "are ticked" and they'll be saying of Trump, “You’ve been around for 13 months. We've been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played. We're going to win" 

This is what happens when a country has eight years of a lawless administration. President Barack Obama had nothing but contempt for our elected representatives and by extension, the American people.

How many times did members of his administration stonewall or outright defy request and subpoenas from Congress? This kind of attitude bled down into the bureaucracies and now we have a deep state that believes it can violate our laws and possibly commit a coup. These are dangerous times for our republic.

Nunes Discusses FISA Memo Fallout, Says Comey Lied

Mark Steyn - Trump and Hope for the West

State Department Next to be Rolled Over by Totalitarian Turdball

Republicans on the House Intel Committee are moving onto phase two of exposing high corruption in the federal bureaucracies. This time it’s the State Departments turn to get sprayed with some disinfectant. Rep. Devin Nunes revealed the following:

"We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this," Nunes said.

"That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation."

The cockroaches in the media and Democratic Party are frantically calling for the ouster of Rep. Nunes as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, wrote a letter to House Speaker Ryan calling for his removal. Mind you, Schumer and his cabal of totalitarians demanded the IRS crackdown on the Tea Party and other conservative organizations.

Dear Speaker Ryan:

“I write to express my deep concern that under your leadership House Republicans have not taken credible action to fully address Russia’s interference in our democracy and prevent cyber-attacks from Russia in the future. Instead, it appears that many House Republicans have decided to sow conspiracy theories and attack the integrity and credibility of federal law enforcement as a means to protect President Trump and undermine the work of Special Counsel Mueller.”

“In particular, Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), has now drafted and seeks to release a conspiracy-themed memo that selectively cherry-picks classified information intended to discredit the past work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and ultimately Special Counsel Mueller. Even more extraordinary is that the actions of Chairman Nunes and his supporters are being actively parroted by Russian-linked cyber actors on social media with the intent to discredit U.S. democratic institutions.”

It looks like this massive, bureaucratic turdball is about to rollover these screaming dung beetles.


Totalitarians Circle Wagons Over House Intelligence Memo

The savages are attacking! The savages are attacking! Fellow totalitarians, circle the wagons! Circle the wagons!

Oh yes, the Democratic Party and their truth-defying, squatters in the media are lashing out against elected representatives who dare reveal the treachery and criminality of political operatives in the FBI, Department of Justice and possibly the federal judiciary. They can’t stand having their ‘rot from within’ mission exposed for the world to see.

The very same people who lionize the Washington Post and informants in the FBI on a third-rate burglary that brought down a president are desperately trying to cover-up institutionalized corruption. We have revolutionaries in our nation’s top, law enforcement agencies hellbent on a coup and a political party that is aiding and abetting their efforts.

A four page memo outlining the criminality of the Obama administration doesn’t faze the so-called mainstream media. These “agents of truth” are trying to playdown these explosive revelations as underwhelming and possibly subversive. They’re not concerned that a fake dossier was used to violate a citizen’s fourth amendment rights and to spy on a presidential nominee. They don’t care that this same dossier was bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. They don’t care that this same dossier was forged by a foreign agent with ties to the Kremlin. But they’re damn sure Donald Trump colluded with the Russians. Go figure.

The Charlotte Observer’s editorial board is a perfect example of liberal, groupthink that contaminates mainstream media. Here is their take on the widespread corruption that infest the upper echelons of our law enforcement agencies:

Wait. That’s it?

That’s the blockbuster secret memo?

That’s the Four Pages of the Apocalypse, the document that’s supposed to cleanse the FBI and shake the Mueller investigation to its core?

We’re ... underwhelmed. There was no blockbuster in the four pages released by the House Intelligence Committee Friday. What those pages contained instead was an allegation that the FBI obtained a FISA surveillance warrant on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page based on information supplied by a source who didn’t like Donald Trump.

Even that allegation might not be true. The FBI says the memo is rife with inaccuracies. So do Democrats in a rebuttal the same committee refuses to release. Also left out was any supporting documentation, such as the actual FISA application. Instead, what America got was speculation without evidence, accusations without facts, about a small part of a massive Russia investigation.

Really, that’s it?

This is what Republicans thought was worth risking the good name of the FBI and its agents. This is what Donald Trump thought was worth further corroding his relationship with the nation’s law enforcement agencies.

Did the Observer think the FBI would embrace a memo that exposes their corruption? Are these people so far down the rabbit hole that they can’t look outside of their liberal looking-glass? Keep swallowing those blue pills, morons.

Their editorial keeps getting better:

The memo offers no such justification. It is classic conspiracy weaving and Talk Radio 101, a declaration that if one fraction of an FBI investigation has a sniff of partisanship, the whole probe must be tainted. The only people who will believe that are those who already have their eyes closed before reading it, because the president already has persuaded them the Russia probe is a political witch hunt.

In that way, allowing the memo’s release was a clumsy political move on Trump’s part. It had already done its job before Friday, prompting breathless alarm about the FBI and sowing doubt about the origins of Mueller’s investigation. The smart play for Trump would have been to somberly keep the memo secret and let the spores of conspiracy continue to flourish in the dark.

I thought the job of journalists, and the news industry in general, was to shine a light on the machines of power and influence. The Washington Post’s masthead proudly proclaims, Democracy Dies in Darkness. Apparently, the Charlotte Observer is willing to let democracy die. And finally, the coup de grace

Instead, the president turned on the light on. What did we learn? Not much. But the memo reminded us of plenty.

It reminded us that House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes is a bumbling Trump sycophant who already had to step away from the Russia investigation once and now should be relieved of his chairmanship.

It reminded us which Republicans are willing to inflict foundational damage to our country’s top law enforcement agency for the sake of protecting the president and their party.

Isn’t that delicious? It goes to show you that whatever Democrats and their media lapdogs accuse Republicans of doing, you can damn well bet that’s what they’re up to.

I have to ask, who damaged the FBI's and DOJ's reputation?  Are they sure it wasn't the very agents who conspired with Hillary Clinton and her confederates to bleach bit and smash cellphones and laptops? Or, when they changed the language in a report so as to ensure the Democratic nominee wouldn’t be indicted for violating the espionage act? Is there any reprehension by the editors at the Charlotte Observer over having a fake dossier used to spy on political opponents? I could go on and on about the transgressions of the Obama administration and the Observer’s lack of concern.

I agree that democracy dies in darkness, particularly when the media willfully throws a tarp over the truth.
