The FBI’s Darkest Days Were During Mueller’s Term

The FBI’s Darkest Days Were During Mueller’s Term

by Bob Bennett

The ecstatic reaction to Deputy AG Rosenstein’s choice of former FBI director Robert Mueller to be the special counsel in the Russia investigation may be justified, to the extent of Mueller’s bipartisan credibility. Many have gushed that he presided over the FBI’s development into an agency of counterterrorism after 9/11. But, these statements omit the fact that he also presided over the subsequent hobbling of the FBI in carrying out that mission.

Though it would not bear upon his acting as special counsel, before we beatify him altogether, we should recall that during his time as FBI director, Mr. Mueller permitted an appalling partnership between the FBI and the enemy itself, in the form of Islamist advocacy groups the DOJ had identified as fronts for Hamas during the Holy Land trial, in 2007-8. The federal judge in the case “stated in one ruling that ‘the Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations with CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with … HAMAS.’” (p. 14-15)

The Global Jihad Movement scored its greatest win against the U.S. in 2011 when, as Patrick Poole wrote in TheBlaze, then–FBI director Mueller’s work with these groups had the result of hindering the agency’s fight against radical Islam.

Following a series of articles in September 2011 by “far-left blogger Spencer Ackerman at WIRED Magazine that claimed counter-terrorism trainers and materials used by the FBI were promoting ‘Islamophobia,’ a letter signed by fifty-seven U.S. Islamic groups, including the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), was sent to Obama’s then–counterterrorism czar, John Brennan.” He’s the man who once referred to Jerusalem as “al Quds.”

The almost immediate result was the Obama White House’s compelling the FBI and other agencies to purge all federal government training materials of “biased” materials—content linking Islam with terror.

On February 8, 2012, FBI Director Mueller met with representatives of some of the Islamic groups that had signed the demand letter, “including representatives from ISNA and MPAC.” Their intent was to check the progress of their demands for a ‘purge’ (the term they used) of the bureau’s counter-terrorism training materials…. They were told that more than 700 documents and 300 presentations had been purged from the FBI’s training.”—TheBlaze

Poole also noted that “In one Justice Department filing, prosecutors noted that ‘numerous exhibits were entered into evidence establishing … ISNA’s … intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood,’” and “MPAC as an organization has been criticized for publications defending terrorist organizations and equating Islamic suicide attacks with Patrick Henry and ‘American freedom fighters.’”

A report on ISNA’s website reflected that “more than 160,000 pages of documents were reviewed by subject matter experts multiple times. Consequently, more than 700 documents and 300 presentations of material have been deemed unusable by the Bureau and pulled from the training curriculum.” [Emphasis added.]

Just who were these experts? When members of Congress asked for the names of the “subject matter experts” who had reviewed the training materials, the FBI actually classified their names, said Patrick Poole.

TheBlaze reported that on March 23, 2012, a meeting took place “between a representative from the FBI responsible for purging the counter-terrorism training materials, and attorneys and staffers with the House Judiciary Committee.”

“A document the FBI presented to the congressional staffers … was represented as the ‘guiding principles’ by which [training] materials were reviewed. But a review of the … document show[ed] a … shocking shift in U.S. government policies:

Training must clearly distinguish between constitutionally protected statements and activities designed to achieve political, social, or other objectives, and violent extremism….

This distinction includes recognition of the corresponding principle that mere association with organizations that demonstrate both legitimate (advocacy) and illicit (violent extremism) objectives should not automatically result in a determination that the associated individual is acting in furtherance of the organization’s illicit objective(s).

Patrick Poole writes that “a congressional staff attorney” explained to him that:

The FBI is clearly saying here that if you support a designated terrorist organization or group that engages in violence, but that same organization engages in some kind of non-violent activity, like religious or ideological instruction, your support for that terrorist organization is deemed by this administration as constitutionally protected.

As for exactly what was purged, a study done by terrorism expert Stephen Coughlin for Rep. Louis Gohmert revealed that certain words—some of which were used hundreds of times in the 9/11 Commission Report—had vanished from the FBI’s Counter-Terrorism Analytical Lexicon.”

For example, according to Gohmert, the 9/11 report mentioned the word “Islam” 322 times. However, Gohmert declares that the FBI training manual no longer contains the terms: “Islam,” “Muslim,” “jihad,” “Muslim Brotherhood,” “Hamas,” “Hezbollah,” “al-Qa’eda,” “caliphate,” “Sharia law,” even “enemy.” [See video at 22:40.]

Yet, then–FBI director Mueller told members of the House Judiciary Committee in 2012 that “I can say absolutely and with certainty that political correctness played no role in the efforts I undertook to make certain that we will give the best training to our personnel.”

Some might think that Mueller should have resigned before allowing this travesty.

Barry’s New Job

Barry’s New Job

Dr. Jim Garrow

It didn’t take long for the saying to kick in – you know the one about “Idle hands are the devils workshop.” The leader of 27% of America is getting ready to put it into high gear and join the rabble on the front lines of the fight against all things American. He is just waiting for the right timing, the right mob and clearance from his Secret Service handlers to ensure that he looks wild and free while being tethered to the safety and security of his well-armed group of eight. Then he can really get into it, surrounded by eager young thugs, ready to rock and roll against “the man.”

Remember “the man?” Up until January, Obama had been “the man” for the past eight years. Like peeling back the onion, the underlying layer of Barry Soetoro was just waiting to be revealed. Transitioning from being the leader of the free world to being the commie-inspired agitator. I’m waiting for him to make the error of referencing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the struggle for equal rights for blacks. Mrs. King can then put a hurt on him with the truth of how he is in no way, style or fashion anything like the dearly-departed Reverend. That would be a classic battle come to think of it. All style versus all reality. The Poser versus the Champion. Obama might be better off thinking that one through a little more.

If folks ever got hold of the notion that he is merely an actor putting forth a characterization versus the track record of a real champion of the people like Dr. King, his goose would be cooked.

As the walls go up around the suburban home of the previous President, the metaphor of contraction, of protectionism, of trying to be the common man behind a moat and a bridge and battlements is pretty hard to hide. “Hypocrazy” is my word for it. The hypocrite whose reality is a far cry from what his press clippings would indicate, hiding behind the wall of separation while trying to convince the world that his is just one of us. The picture is worth a thousand words and I can’t wait to see if we will get some cell phone movies from the first public protest encounter showing folks being herded and shoved in order for the perfect photo op showing Barry as the man of the people. I hope no one is trampled or killed while trying to get a selfie with Barack, the man of the people. If things get really rough, Barry can always head back to Hawaii and put his feet up, throwing back a couple of Coors Lites while munching on fresh pineapple, writing his next book by Bill Ayers and Company.

Suck it Up Hippies, a New Sheriff is in Town

Suck it Up Hippies, a New Sheriff is in Town

Dr. Jim Garrow

The almost apoplectic left wingers (communists) have been throwing everything possible at President Trump since Day One of his administration’s signing the documents of ascension. Now the travel ban has been stopped albeit temporarily as the left-leaners take up the Pelosi mandate to slow down the process so that it stops everything possible.

Hitting back with a vengeance is what the hate-mongers in the Democratic party are doing. Damn the torpedoes – and the will of We The People – batten down the hatches and clog up the arteries of government. In the end it is the people who pay the price for this planned interference and its natural fall out. Government – which sucked at getting things done before the election – will now go slower and hope that nobody takes notice of where the marching orders are coming from (hint – it’s the Democratic Party).

As Pelosi and crew signal clearly that their petulant disregard for the election results and their immature temper tantrums in blocking the Trump freight train, will only result in wreckage that is expensive and in some cases life threatening as legislation and healthy debate are set aside because of brinksmanship and the forced “nuclear option.”

Mind you, it is clearly the choice of the Democrats to take this tack. Reid and Pelosi forced the nuclear option on America and reaped the whirlwind in the election process. Forcing the President to use Executive dictate to enable and enact his promises from the election cycle will not slow him down much. But it will show clearly who is acting in the public’s interests versus the best interests of the elites who could always depend on the Democrats to step up to the mic and lie to the American people.

Progress will be made, and the refreshing thing is that we are seeing a President with a work ethic doing what he promised and not sitting with his feet on the Resolute desk dispensing phony wisdom to fawning media sycophants. The war on for our minds and our opinions has clear evidence showing what a President with the values of We The People can do rather than just say. Pontification is being replaced with action and the gnashing of Democrat teeth can be heard across the land.

Suck it up hippies, a new sheriff is in town…

Control of Education is the Left’s Ace in the Hole

Control of Education is the Left’s Ace in the Hole

By David Risselada

Finally, after eight years of governance by a left wing radical intent on turning our nation upside down, a new President is at the helm. We can only hope that Donald trump proves himself to be the conservative we are expecting him to be. If he demonstrates otherwise we have a responsibility to hold him accountable in the same manner we attempted to hold the previous White House occupant accountable. As an author who offered up some pretty harsh criticisms of The Donald it must be admitted that some of his cabinet picks are outstanding.

For instance, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is a staunch constitutionalist and climate change denier which makes him the perfect choice for the EPA, if that unconstitutional monstrosity is to be reigned in. Marine Corps General James Mattis for Secretary of Defense has liberal heads spinning as he is not likely to play politically correct games designed to protect peoples feelings while putting the nation at risk. Other picks have created a bit of a controversy, like Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State for instance, or Elaine Chao, wife of an establishment Republican who did little to stop Obama’s agenda, Mitch McConnell. Truthfully, if something isn’t done about education it wont matter who Trump nominates because the next generation will simply be brought up being taught that they are all racist, warmongering, sexist islamophobes that don’t care about the planet. Trump’s pick for Education Secretary, Betsy Devos, vows to be a force for change in our education system. She is a strong advocate for school choice who vociferously stated her opposition to common core standards.

These are good signs, however; until someone acknowledges that our school systems have become a breeding ground for behavior based psychology and behavior modification techniques, which indoctrinate children into the tenants of progressivism, nothing will change.

If Betsy Devos is serious about reforming our education system the first thing she would do is eliminate the United States participation in UNESCO, which stands for The United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural Organization. The United States has been a member since 1946. Since this time the United Nations has dictated educational policy in the United States with the main goal being the elimination of  patriotism, individualism and any concept of what is right and wrong. This explains how the radical left has maintained such control over education, getting away with teaching racially divisive concepts like “white privilege,” while at the same time raising generations of American students who have no understanding of the constitutional republic in which they freely live.

During the early 1900’s, “Americas progressive era,” educators became convinced that the Soviet model of education was superior to America’s. Instrumental players like John Dewey, author of the Humanist Manifesto, worked to turn America’s education system into one where students were trained to become “socially acceptable” members of society as opposed to free thinkers able to exercise their own free will. Schools were designed to create the ideal citizen as opposed to the next great inventor, or entrepreneur.

In 1932, William Foster, national chairman of the Communist Party of the United States wrote the book Toward Soviet America. In this book he laid out his vision for education, which is strikingly similar to what we see today as much of what he describes has been accomplished.

“A U.S. Department of Education; implementation of a scientific materialist philosophy; studies revolutionized, being cleansed of religious, patriotic and other features of the bourgeois ideology; students taught on the basis of Marxian dialectical materialism, internationalism and general ethics of a new socialist society; present obsolete methods of teaching will be superseded by a scientific pedagogy. The whole basis and organization of capitalist science will be revolutionized. Science will become materialistic, hence truly scientific. God will be banished from the laboratories as well as from the schools.” (Foster, Toward Soviet America)

This is exactly what our school system teaches today. American students are convinced that America is the worlds greatest evil and believe an international government will solve many of the world’s problems. Science and psychology have completely eradicated religion in public schools and universities, and the idea that pursuing wealth and property is equated with selfishness and greed.

Unfortunately, the practice of psychology has taught educators that training students using behavior modification techniques can have lasting results. In other words, the earlier the radical left gets a hold of your child the more likely they are to grow up being a communist without even knowing it. B.F. Skinner wrote in his book Beyond Freedom and Dignity that manipulating the environment to create a fear of non-acceptance can be a greater form of control than an all out police state. This seems to be a popular theme as another well known psychologist, Bertrand Russell, says virtually the same thing.

“Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy. . . . It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished. . . . Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. . . .”—-Bertrand Russell, 1953

As long as government remains in control of education it is certain they will use it to psychologically condition students to behave in manners that suit governments needs. Today, our kids are being inundated with propaganda concerning race, gun control and a belief that America has stolen the worlds resources. Their ability to clearly think and problem solve has been destroyed and replaced with an emotional outburst spouting off liberal talking points to anything that upsets their fragile egos. Unfortunately, the earlier they are exposed to this propaganda the more likely it is to become embedded in their brains as a permanent fixture.

“Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished … The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.” —–Bertrand Russell quoting Johann Gottlieb Fichte

Donald Trump could appoint the most conservative cabinet in the history of the United States. Betsy Devos could be totally devoted to reforming America’s education system; however, failure to acknowledge the real issue while acting like school choice will solve our problems will accomplish nothing, aside from determining which school gets the privilege of indoctrinating your child. As long as the left remains in control of education they will continue to pound ideas into our children’s head that support their beliefs, not ours. Our children will be the next generation of useful idiots demanding social change they don’t understand, while standing in opposition to whatever positive changes Trump has made.

Control of education is the left’s long game folks. The biggest mistake we could make as a nation is become comfortable with the belief that winning this election means we have won the nation back. Therein lies the point of this whole article; many of us have been affected by our education to the point we are comfortable with government control over certain aspects of our lives. The only way things will change is if we remember that we control our government, not the other way around. We need to be a thorn in Trumps side America, make him remember why he won.

The Feminist Movement’s Roots in Marxist Philosophy

The Feminist Movement’s Roots in Marxist Philosophy

By David Risselada

Despite the fact that Donald Trump is days away from assuming the presidency, the choo choo train of fundamental transformation continues to chug along. The left remains in firm control of America’s educational system; which means that no matter what conservative changes Trump may make, students will still be indoctrinated into the tenets of progressivism. The latest example of this is coming from the same place that white privilege education originated, Wisconsin. It is overwhelmingly obvious that there is an agenda to not only weaken and discredit American institutions, but the American male as well. The University of Wisconsin is set to launch its “men’s project” which is designed to teach male students to be more self aware of how their masculinity and manly attitudes affect the people around them. One of the main objectives, according to the college, is to address the negative characteristics of masculinity and the violence it allegedly causes. Also, the program seeks to encourage men to engage in critical self reflection and promote gender equality. Like White Privilege education, the gender equality/feminist movement has its roots in Marxist philosophy and is designed to break down the most basic of American institutions, the nuclear family.

Karl Marx viewed the family as a vehicle of class oppression. A strong family structure is essential to any free nation where people rely on themselves as opposed to government. To Marx and Engels however, the family was an instrument of exploitation. The family structure was a byproduct of the oppressive capitalist system where the woman’s labor was exploited and undervalued. Marxist theory on the family argues that the modern structure developed out of a need to pass on property through familial lines. As the development of agriculture and the use of livestock became more prevalent, the need to maintain and pass down private property became a dominating factor in family life; thus, relinquishing women into subservient roles. Therefore, in order to create true gender equality, private property must be eliminated.  These ideas were later developed into the modern feminist movement by left wing activist, Betty Friedan.

Friedan, who was a communist sympathizer, authored the book The Feminine Mystique where she attempted to convince American women that the lives they were living were no more than comfortable prison camps. Marxists thrive on the creation of discontent, and in the very first chapter of this book Freidan holds no punches. Attacking the very nature of what it meant to be a 20th century American woman, Friedan suggests they should all be wondering if there is more to life than simply serving their families.

“The problem lay buried, unspoken for many years in the minds of American women. It was a strange stirring, a sense of dissatisfaction, a yearning that women suffered in the twentieth century in the United States. Each suburban wife struggled with it alone. As she made the beds, shopped for the groceries, matched slip cover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured cub scouts and brownies, lay beside her husband at night-she was afraid to ask herself the silent question. Is this all?”

In that very first paragraph Friedan exposes her Marxist leanings by citing the typical work of a house wife as a source of discontent. She attacks the very nature of motherhood by implanting the idea that caring for children is somehow unfulfilling, and that family life itself is a form of oppression by describing it as a buried, unspoken of problem. The feminist movement, with the help of Freidan’s book, has aided in the destruction of the American family by convincing women that they are oppressed victims in patriarchal oligarchy. This draws back to Antonio Gramsci and the idea of counter hegemony. The feminist movement represents a class of people whose values are antithetical to the dominate social group. This will create the necessary conflict which will, in the minds of Marxists, inevitably push society towards full communism.

The feminist movement, in it’s epic struggle for total equality between the sexes, has completely destroyed what it means to be equal by forcing the idea that men and women are the same onto society. Marx and Engels viewed marriage and the family from the same dogmatic precept that they viewed everything else. That there was no god and mankind held no more special significance than any other animal. This is completely antithetical to the way most Americans view marriage.

Despite the changes we have endured, America still holds a Christian majority that wants the institution of marriage protected. The institute of marriage, according to our founding fathers, was unique in the sense that it best prepared individuals for responsible citizenship which is essential for self governance. While Marxists view marriage as a vehicle of oppression which subjugates women while protecting the interests of the patriarchy, the truth is that marriage protects both men and women equally while ensuring mutual interests are protected. The marriage represented equality in the sense that it was an agreement that both parties agreed to in the interest of raising children and forming a stronger community.

The feminist movement insists that men and women be treated as complete equals; however, this destroys the true character of women and suggests that they have no special characteristics which define womanhood. When it comes to the issue of raising children it would be difficult to argue that women do not possess a nurturing characteristic that is unique to motherhood while men bring different parenting skills necessary to child rearing. The point is that marriage represents true equality between the sexes because a true marriage brings men and women together into the forming of one union working together to achieve a common goal; a stronger, more responsible society. The feminist movement, deriving it’s origins from the radical left, has sought to destroy this union because they understood that the family was the bedrock of any self governing society and in order to get people to accept state control it must be destroyed. The attempts to redefine masculinity while psychologically neutering the American male are part of this agenda and unless some drastic reforms are made to higher education, they will continue to fill our students heads with mush.

Deranged Democrats Plot Sabotage, Criminal Activity for Trump Inauguration

Deranged Democrats Plot Sabotage, Criminal Activity for Trump Inauguration

By Jim Kouri

In a newly released video, renowned investigative journalist James O’Keefe continued his far reaching probe of the allegedly deranged Democratic Party’s connections to anti-Trump, anti-GOP activities many of which border on criminal action, perhaps even acts of terrorism.

O’Keefe is credited with bringing down President Barack Obama’s top supporter known as ACORN, as well as uncovering Democratic Party contractors’ use of shady tactics to sabotage the campaign of now President-elect Donald Trump.

The young man who calls himself a citizen journalist has uncovered members of a secret organization calling themselves the DC Anti-Fascist Coalition who are planning several acts including an attack using Butanoic acid — also known as Butyric acid —  at the National Press Club during the Deploraball event scheduled for the evening of Thursday January 19.

The substance has in the past been used as a “stink bomb” by animal-rights groups to disrupt whaling crews, as well as by pro-life activists to disrupt operations at abortion clinics.

Although the evidence doesn’t point to any direct connection with the Democratic Party or its minions in the news media, some suspect that those members of the U.S. Congress such as Rep. John Lewis (pictured above), Rep. Luis Gutierrez and Rep. Keith Ellison, are boycotting the inauguration on Friday because they are aware that there will be violent incidents by Democrat-supported protesters and want to maintain their deniability.

“Anyone who is a student of history recognizes these anti-Trumpers as being very much like the Nazi Party ‘Brown Shirts’ who created havoc that helped the rise to power of Adolf Hitler. Also, look for these people to seek creating a ‘martyr’ to hold up to the people of American with the help of less-than-honest news media organizations,” said former NYPD detective and U.S. Marine Michael Snopes.

SECURITY FOR INAUGURATION

According to news analysis by former law enforcement official, Jim Kouri, appearing on the Conservative Base,  security surrounding the inauguration of Donald Trump is proving to be the most challenging in recent history, according to senior officials involved in its planning, largely because of the same forces of political rancor that shaped the race for the presidency.

The dozens of government and contracted agencies responsible for security at the Jan. 20 festivities are preparing for the possibility of large numbers of protesters pouring into the capital, along with what may be nearly 1 million supporters of Trump. For example, there is talk of one group of anti-Trump “potheads” who are claiming they will handout thousands of marijuana “joints” for protesters to smoke while protesting the inauguration.

In 2009, Obama’s inauguration was the first transfer of power in the post-9/11 era — and the first in which an African-American was taking the oath of office. Obama faced a rash of racist threats, as well as concerns about a terrorist plot that ultimately proved unfounded but sent the president-elect and top aides scrambling on the eve of his swearing-in.

Even so, Obama did not face the kind of large-scale protests expected to greet Trump when he officially arrives in Washington. The 2009 crowd of nearly 2 million people, a record, included few, if any, protesters and did not lead to a single arrest, according to Christopher T. Geldart, the director of homeland security for the District of Columbia.

A vast planning board of intelligence analysts, military personnel, and law enforcement officers numbering in the tens of thousands will be working to protect the inauguration and related activities.

In total, more than three dozen different agencies spread out across the capital will be working to prevent the occasion from becoming a platform for individuals or groups looking to do harm. Their work, begun months ago, has taken on a new urgency since Election Day and will soon include the imposition of a security perimeter around the Capitol, the Mall, and large parts of the city.

Soldiers and airmen from the South Dakota National Guard are preparing for joint support of the 58th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, Jan. 20, 2017, according to Air Force Master Sgt. Christopher Stewart.

“They will join hundreds of National Guardsmen from across the country to assist with security, crowd control and traffic management throughout the national capital region when President-elect Donald J. Trump takes the oath as the 45th president of the United States,” Sgt. Stewart wrote. “This joint service security group is preparing with refresher training on the safe and secure movement of civilians prior to, during and after inauguration events.”

“The purpose of the training is so that the two branches can blend together and work together as a cohesive team,” said Army Sgt. Kurtis Brown, 235th Military Police Company team leader. “For a joint operation like the Presidential Inauguration we all want to be on the same page.”

Instructors from a local air ambulance service provided medical training on Dec. 3 that was focused on medical issues civilians might develop at the inauguration.

“The practice was needed and beneficial to all of us, said Air Force Lt. Kristopher King,” 114th Security Forces chief of information protection. “It’s a great opportunity to make sure everyone is speaking the same language and using the same techniques.”

The costs of security alone are expected to exceed $100 million.

Jim Kouri, CPP, is founder and CEO of Kouri Associates, a homeland security, public safety and political consulting firm. He’s formerly Fifth Vice-President, now a Board Member of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, a columnist, and a contributor to the nationally syndicated talk-radio program, the Chuck Wilder Show.. He’s former chief of police at a New York City housing project in Washington Heights nicknamed “Crack City” by reporters covering the drug war in the 1980s. In addition, he served as director of public safety at St. Peter’s University and director of security for several major organizations. He’s also served on the National Drug Task Force and trained police and security officers throughout the country. Jim writes for Conservative Base.

‘White Privilege’ and the Real Racist Attitudes of the Left

‘White Privilege’ and the Real Racist Attitudes of the Left

By David Risselada

Across the nation public universities continue to push the false “white privilege” narrative. Liberal colleges, in an attempt to prove America is a racist, white supremacist nation, push the idea that white people are the beneficiaries of unearned privileges in American society. They insist that minority populations are oppressed victims and that American institutions, being set up only to benefit the white man, systematically discriminate against them. Not only is this false ideology limiting the potential of minorities in America by insisting they cannot succeed in such a racist country, it is creating a new racial hatred which if left unchecked, will surely end in violence. We have already seen this take shape in the revolutionary movement against police known as Black Lives Matter. Sadly, blacks and other minorities are being exploited in America. They are being used to stir up chaos and discontent in a strategy designed to fundamentally transform the nation, and the teaching of white privilege is but a means to this end.

White privilege education originated in Wisconsin in 2009 when the Department of Public Instruction developed a program called Create Wisconsin. The program was supposedly developed to address the achievement gap between white and black students. Educators argued that too many minority students were being placed in special education programs because public education was geared too much toward the “white culture” without addressing cultural differences between whites and minorities. From here, the idea that our society created conditions which made it impossible for minority students to succeed took hold. Every year there is an annual White Privilege Conference hosted by a group bearing that name. Their goal, as noted on their public website is to “deconstruct the white culture” in order to achieve racial justice. Looking at the way racial identity politics have taken a hold in America it could be argued that they are succeeding in their efforts.

As mentioned in the first paragraph, white privilege education is a means to an end. White privilege, or the idea of using racial conflict for societal change is Marxist in origin, and the people behind the scenes are not in search of racial or social justice but absolute control. Karl Marx argued that conflict between the social classes, the rich and the poor, would lead to a perfect classless society. This of course failed to materialize as the world’s workers failed to unite against their alleged oppressors. People like Antonio Gramsci picked up Karl Marx’s mantle and further elaborated on ways to create the needed conflict to bring about communism.  Gramsci’s idea was to create several different oppressed classes and put their values against the values of the dominant social group. This is called counter-hegemony. The word hegemony simply means the social influence exerted by the dominant class. So, counter-hegemony would mean creating a value system that is antithetical to this group. Looking at America today we see a society where everyone is a victim of the unfairness of American Republicanism. We have the feminist movement, the LGBT movement, various minority groups claiming to be discriminated against and a media working feverishly to make sure we know our values are not aligned. This is the work of the Marxist’s in our society following Gramsci’s plan for social change.

Further examining the left wing view of man, and the relationship between Marxist and Darwinian thinking leads to the understanding that it is in fact, the left that harbors a racist attitude. Our society has nearly become a full blown welfare state, and it is the promise of free money and benefits that the left relies upon to organize the minority vote. The constant pushing of the white privilege fable coupled with the idea that American society was developed so only certain people could reap the financial benefits has been a winning combination for the left.

To most people racism implies a hatred for a group of people simply because of their skin color. This is certainly the narrative developed by the left; however, it is taking on a new definition today as Democrats insist that blacks and other minorities need their social programs in order to compete on a level playing field. Every time someone speaks out against the massive spending on social welfare, which does little to alleviate poverty mind you, they are attacked as being a racist. Speaking out against programs like affirmative action, which again, the left insists is needed for minorities to have an equal footing, will get you labeled as a racist as well. The definition of racism has changed from being a hatred of someone because of their skin color to believing they are equal and not in need of special treatment.

In Economic Determinism vs. Freewill and the Destruction of our Morality, the belief that man is not in possession of a will of his own was discussed. Rather, communists tend to believe that mans actions will be controlled by the economic times in which he is forced to endure. This belief stems from Darwinian thinking in the sense that man, according to Darwin, is not a special being and has no more significance on Earth than any other animal. Our behavior is not ours to control but the product of our evolutionary roots. Taking this belief to its logical conclusion, it would be reasonable to argue that evolutionists believe that certain races are further along the evolutionary chain than others. In other words, the left truly believes that blacks and other minorities cannot succeed in a society such as ours without their intervention.

‘a central plank in Marxist doctrine today. The Nazis were convinced, as are communists today, that evolution had taken place, that all biology had evolved spontaneously upward, and that in-between links (or less evolved types) should be actively eradicated. They believed that natural selection could and should be actively aided, and therefore instituted political measures to eradicate the handicapped, the Jews, and the blacks, whom they considered as “underdeveloped.”  (Wilder-Smith, B., The Day Nazi Germany Died, Master Books, San Diego, p. 27, 1982)

Benjamin Rush, who is known as the father of modern Psychiatry, held the belief that black people could not be free and needed government to survive. He believed they suffered from a disease that he compared to Leprosy which he called Negritude. He believed that because of Negritude black people should receive from whites double of what society has to offer. In other words, he didn’t believe black people were capable of producing on their own. Furthermore, the term Drapetomania  was coined by other psychologists of the time to describe a mental illness they ascribed to slaves who attempted to leave the plantation. They believed that a black man was better suited to a life of slavery than to one of freedom. Today, the Democrat party viciously attacks any minority who attempts to speak out against their destructive policies. Do today’s Democrats share these beliefs? It would seem so as they continually argue for the need of social programs aimed at helping minorities when in reality, they are further enslaving them.

Before the progressive movement black people were just as able to compete and succeed in this society as white people were. They had strong families, businesses and they loved their country. It was the promise of welfare and the creation of resentment politics that has decimated the black family and destroyed their free will to the point they believe they need government. The teaching of white privilege has done nothing but limit the possibilities for minorities to succeed while enslaving them to the idea that white society hates them and systematically discriminates against them. It is the left that is oppressing them through white privilege education and other Marxist programs just as it has been the Democrat party that had been their oppressors since the days of slavery.

You would have to be a racist in the first place to believe in white privilege anyway.

Illegal Immigrant Fugitive Rapes and Sodomizes 5-Year-Old Girl

Illegal Immigrant Fugitive Rapes and Sodomizes 5-Year-Old Girl

By Jim Kouri

Law enforcement officers in Southern California said on Thursday that they are continuing their search for an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who is wanted for his heinous sex crimes perpetrated on a 5-year-old girl.

Fullerton, California, police detectives accuse 30-year-old  Rigoberto Arevalo Cubias of engaging in sexual intercourse and sodomy with a minor under the age of 10-years-old following their investigation, which started in late December. Authorities believe Cubias might have a California driver’s license, either legally or fraudulently obtained.

California’s Gov. Jerry Brown and his fellow Democrats had passed a law making the entire state a sanctuary for illegal aliens even if they commit a crime.

On Dec. 21, 2016, Fullerton Police officers responded to a hospital regarding a suspected sexual assault of a 5 year old female that had occurred in Fullerton.

The investigation by detectives from the department’s Family Crimes Unit identified the suspect as Rigoberto Arevalo Cubias, born on Feb. 21,1986, a male Latino, approximately 5’7”, 185 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.

When he’s captured the suspect will be charged with the crime of engaging in sexual intercourse/sodomy with a child under the age of 10 years old, in violation of California Penal Code Section 288.7 (described here).

 

PENAL CODE – PEN

PART 1. OF CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS [25 – 680]

  ( Part 1 enacted 1872. )

TITLE 9. OF CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON INVOLVING SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC DECENCY AND GOOD MORALS [261 – 368.5]

  ( Heading of Title 9 amended by Stats. 1982, Ch. 1111, Sec. 2. )

CHAPTER 5. Bigamy, Incest, and the Crime Against Nature [281 – 289.6]

  ( Chapter 5 enacted 1872. )

288.7.  

(a) Any person 18 years of age or older who engages in sexual intercourse or sodomy with a child who is 10 years of age or younger is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of 25 years to life.

(b) Any person 18 years of age or older who engages in oral copulation or sexual penetration, as defined in Section 289, with a child who is 10 years of age or younger is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of 15 years to life.

Obama and his administration -- and their news media lapdogs -- have kept illegal alien criminal out of the spotlight.

The Obama administration — and their news media lapdogs — have kept illegal alien criminals out of the spotlight.

Cubias is being identified as an “undocumented immigrant from El Salvador” since the politically-correct politicians prohibit the use of the term “illegal immigrant” or “illegal alien.”

Besides the rape case, Cubias has a prior, outstanding $50,000 arrest warrant for a DUI from 2014 under the name “Jose Cubias”. The police report notes that this suspect has multiple aliases, including Jose Cubias, Jose Cubias Arevalo, Jose Riberto Cubias, and Jose Alfonso Cubias Arevalo, according to the Fullerton Police Department.

Detectives believe that Cubias is aware he is wanted by law enforcement and he continues to evade the police manhunt. Police also report that he abandoned his previously owned vehicle and cellular phone in what Detectives believe is an attempt to elude capture.

The Fullerton Police Department is encouraging anyone with information on Cubias’ whereabouts to contact FPD Detective Carin Wright at (714) 738-6754

Inauguration Day: Donald Trump to Be World’s Primary Target for Terrorists, Radicals and Crazies

Inauguration Day: Donald Trump to Be World’s Primary Target for Terrorists, Radicals and Crazies

By Jim Kouri

Historians have noted — in most cases, with pride — that the peaceful transfer of power that has occurred on every U.S. Inauguration Day is a hallmark of this nation’s democracy. But according to the political insider Josh Brernbaum, in addition to launching an attack on President Donald Trump’s inauguration, ISIS has recruited multiple English-speaking jihadists — many of them women — to reach out to the infidels with their death threats.

“ISIS is angry over the results of the American election that brought to power a President who they believe will give no quarter in the war on Islamic terrorists. They are also angry that in the waning months of his administration, President [Barack Obama] is taking credit for what others are doing in Mosul (Iraq) and Aleppo (Syria). He has also allowed U.S. military presence in Afghanistan to fester,” said former counter-terrorism operative Milton Sedgewick, now working as a security contractor.

Security services in European countries are also facing a new paradigm: an upswing in the number of female jihadists who are recruited by ISIS to engage in terrorists acts, according to Homeland Security News Wire.

trumpfopSecurity surrounding the inauguration of Donald Trump is proving to be the most challenging in recent history, according to senior officials involved in its planning, largely because of the same forces of political rancor that shaped the race for the presidency.

The dozens of government and contracted agencies responsible for security at the Jan. 20 festivities are preparing for the possibility of large numbers of protesters pouring into the capital, along with what may be nearly 1 million supporters of Trump. For example, there is talk of one group of anti-Trump “potheads” who are claiming they will handout thousands of marijuana “joints” for protesters to smoke while protesting the inauguration.

In 2009, Obama’s inauguration was the first transfer of power in the post-9/11 era — and the first in which an African-American was taking the oath of office. Obama faced a rash of racist threats, as well as concerns about a terrorist plot that ultimately proved unfounded but sent the president-elect and top aides scrambling on the eve of his swearing-in.

Even so, Obama did not face the kind of large-scale protests expected to greet Trump when he officially arrives in Washington. The 2009 crowd of nearly 2 million people, a record, included few, if any, protesters and did not lead to a single arrest, according to Christopher T. Geldart, the director of homeland security for the District of Columbia.

A vast planning board of intelligence analysts, military personnel, and law enforcement officers numbering in the tens of thousands will be working to protect the inauguration and related activities.

In total, more than three dozen different agencies spread out across the capital will be working to prevent the occasion from becoming a platform for individuals or groups looking to do harm. Their work, begun months ago, has taken on a new urgency since Election Day and will soon include the imposition of a security perimeter around the Capitol, the Mall, and large parts of the city.

Soldiers and airmen from the South Dakota National Guard are preparing for joint support of the 58th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, Jan. 20, 2017, according to Air Force Master Sgt. Christopher Stewart.

“They will join hundreds of National Guardsmen from across the country to assist with security, crowd control and traffic management throughout the national capital region when President-elect Donald J. Trump takes the oath as the 45th president of the United States,” Sgt. Stewart wrote. “This joint service security group is preparing with refresher training on the safe and secure movement of civilians prior to, during and after inauguration events.”

“The purpose of the training is so that the two branches can blend together and work together as a cohesive team,” said Army Sgt. Kurtis Brown, 235th Military Police Company team leader. “For a joint operation like the Presidential Inauguration we all want to be on the same page.”

Instructors from a local air ambulance service provided medical training on Dec. 3 that was focused on medical issues civilians might develop at the inauguration.

“The practice was needed and beneficial to all of us, said Air Force Lt. Kristopher King,” 114th Security Forces chief of information protection. “It’s a great opportunity to make sure everyone is speaking the same language and using the same techniques.”

The costs of security alone are expected to exceed $100 million.
