Weaponless Military to Protect America-WHAT ? 

by Rev. Austin Miles

What in the name of the devil’s domain caused the president to decide to use uniformed military troupes to confront and stop the caravan consisting of thousands of invaders pushing through the borders to come into the United States illegally to face a military that does not carry weapons? That is what is in place now.

What is worse, the newspapers and all media were notified of this fact and ran with it, tipping off the invaders, which would, of course, embolden the huge mob to ‘come on in.’ When they arrive at the border leading into America and see these ‘soldiers’ without arms, they will no doubt laugh, and keep coming.

This writer is a solid supporter of President Donald Trump except  for this ridiculous concept. What is more, no doubt there are some of the ‘refugees’ who have a gun hidden on their person. To send United States soldiers to face a huge mob with the intent to shove their way into this country with no weapons to defend themselves against desperate third world intruders is absurd.

Just imagine military officers in uniform standing before invaders shaking their finger and saying….”No no. Go back.”  But that is exactly what they have been ordered to do.

Could you imagine General Patton giving such a stupid order before stopping the Germans during World War 2?

America is to be respected for the fact that they are tough with tough laws that are enforced and to show disrespect for America is at one’s own peril. Don’t mess with America. Stern measures will be taken when you do.  When an act of terrorism takes place on our soil, take down the entire town where the terrorists came from.

These Illegals have already burned an American Flag with shouts of anti-American rhetoric. And we will just let them walk in? They plan to come and virtually take over our country. That cannot be allowed to happen.

The invaders have been warned not to attempt to breach our borders. Once they get to the border, a few rounds could be aimed close to the first ones, kicking up the dust around their feet. That should be all that is necessary. They will see we are serious and will not expect to come in and have everything paid for them.

However, for uniformed but unarmed military personnel to try to stand up in front of them and tell them to go back is laughable.

It is not a bad thing for people to have a bit of fear of you. Respectful fear can add punch to what you say.

Depending upon President Trump reversing his order of disarming the military at the border, there is such a thing as a citizen’s militia that could be at the border to greet them all. Patriots take notice.


Trump warns caravan: ‘Our military is waiting for you’

Trump warns caravan: ‘Our military is waiting for you’

President Trump on Monday warned the 7,000-person migrant caravan to turn back and said it would be met by the U.S. military if it tried to cross into the U.S.

“Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border. Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process,” Trump said on Twitter Monday morning. “This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!”

The Pentagon is expected to
deploy 5,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexican border in anticipation of the caravan’s arrival as soon as this week.

Last week, the Trump administration requested the Department of Defense send down 800 troops to assist law enforcement at the border as the caravan comes to the border with “some very bad people.”

The U.S. and Mexico reached an agreement earlier this month that was meant to stop the caravan from progressing through Mexico. The efforts were unsuccessful as the migrants tore down the border fences between Guatemala and Mexico and charged into Mexico to continue its trek north.

Have Heart, Stand Tall

By Jim O’Neill

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We can preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we can sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

Ronald Reagan “Time for Choosing” speech, 1964

As We the People have come to expect, the Left has overplayed its hand yet again.  The “banality of evil” indeed – which is not to say that evil is trite, but that it has become all too commonplace and accepted.

The crisis de jour has become routine to the point of farce.  It would be comical but for the increasing violence and tragedy.  What will it be next time – a faux “Russian” EMP attack?

As dangerous as cornered rats, the Deep State is outing itself as a heartless, soulless monster, capable of committing any atrocity in order to protect itself.  I do not put anything past these evil power-hungry ghouls.

But We the People have their number.  We know their MO and motives, ruthlessness and lack of heart.  We tune out the MSM and tune in Freedom wherever we find it.

Have heart, stand tall.  The frantic thrashings of an increasingly panicked Deep State underline the fact that a red tsunami is coming November 6, and they know it.

The Deep State’s Loony-Bomber

By Jim O’Neill

Less than two weeks before the vitally important mid-term elections a zealous Trump fanatic mails faux bombs to various Democratic shills for violence against Republicans – gee what a coincidence right?

The Loony-Bomber is too made-to-order, too Hollywood central casting, too polished to be believed.  But no one ever accused the Left of being coy and understated – ruthless, sly, and manipulative, yes, but coy and understated, no.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he was arrested wearing an “I Love Deplorables” t-shirt, MAGA cap, and sporting a big ol’ “Kill a Commie for Christ” button pinned to his shirt.  One wonders if there’s a Jack Ruby waiting in the wings.

I’m not buying the spoon-fed media narrative for a nano-second.  The whole thing stinks of a pre-planned Deep State setup.  Having the government and media p—s on your leg and tell you it’s raining year after year tends to make you a tad leery when it comes to trusting them.  Color me skeptical…extremely skeptical.


Caravans, Mobs, and Phony Bombs

By Jim O’Neill

The Democratic playbook is not playing well in Peoria these days.  We the People are hip to the Left’s tactics to an astonishing degree.  When we are called racists we yawn, when we are called xenophobes we shrug, and when we are called deplorable virulent dregs of society we turn away in scorn.  We collectively say to the Leftist elites “F—k you and the horse you rode in on.  Get a life, you frigging parasites.”

Case in point, the recent plethora of fake bomb scares.  Perhaps as recently as ten years ago this blatant attempt to gain sympathy for the devil might have worked – now, not so much.

It is commonly accepted among conservatives that the whole scenario is a ham-handed hoax orchestrated by the Left under one of its innumerable guises.  The only question at this point appears to be whether the Left had the brains to have it all lead back to some hapless right-wing loser(s), or whether they were inept enough to have it traced directly back to them.  Oh, the suspense.  Whatever, time will tell.

Recently it seems that whatever foul means the Dems turn their hand to they overplay it.  Take the Kavanaugh hearings for example.  Democrat theatrical histrionics and semi-coherent mobs didn’t sidetrack Kavanaugh’s confirmation, so the Left turned to incoherent mobs and a Dreyfus Affair-style show trial.  Both the mobs and the trial backfired on the Dems big time.  More than anything else they served to further wake up and engage We the People.  We are well and truly fed up with vicious anti-American Leftist bulls—t.

And the “Caravan” — geeze Louise, what genius came up with that term.  I can picture a group of high-level Leftists brainstorming around a table late one night: “What should we call the invasion?  “March to Freedom?”  Nah, too hokey.  How about “The People’s March?”  No…sounds too left wingy.  I know, we’ll call it a “Caravan!”  It’s short and inoffensive sounding – I mean who doesn’t like a caravan?  Sweet…send it out to our media toadies and make sure we are all on the same page.”

Yeah, well this “caravan” wending its way toward America’s southern border looks suspiciously like a horde of invaders to me…and it seems like every time I turn my head the number of “caravaners” has increased by leaps and bounds, from the hundreds to the thousands, to over ten thousand just like that.  I see no end in sight.

I could, of course, go on at some length about the duplicity, ruthlessness, and arrogance of the Left, but let me suffice it to say that We the People absolutely must not let the Democrats anywhere near the reins of power again.  Vote straight Republican on November 6 and send President Trump (and We the People) vital help.  State, local, or federal election, it makes no difference, VOTE REPUBLICAN.

Attempted Bombing of Soros’ Mailbox

by Rev. Austin Miles

NEW YORK 10/23/18—Someone just attempted to kill George Soros by placing a bomb in the mailbox in front of his mansion in Katona, New York, in the Bedford Section.

A security guard who checks the mail, found it, rushed it to a thicket near by and left it there, called authorities who came right away, went to the package and detonated it. Nobody was hurt.

Soros is stirring up more and more resentment due to his meddling in governments, including the U.S.A. with the goal of putting America under Communist rule, which would bring in his New World Order. America is the only country standing in the way. He owns the Democratic Party, make no mistake about it.

Several countries have an international warrant out for his arrest including Russia. Why can’t our officials notify Russia that they have permission to come in the U.S., seize and arrest this traitor who has caused so much damage, including to his own people who he sold out during World War 2.

Even though we have not had the opportunity to check this out, we were notified that Hillary Clinton lives in a house right next door to Soros. Cozy.

Soros also has a mansion in the Hamptons of Long Island, where Hillary spend a weekend of August 9th—BEFORE the November election. He has an apartment in Manhattan as well as a business office on W. 56th Street.

Soros is involved with CPUSA (Communist Party USA) that sponsored Obama and has furnished the protest signs for all the Antifa demonstrations. This writer took a close look at the signs on a news cast and saw the notice on the bottom of the manufactured signs which identified the sponsor.

Soros has given his hand and paychecks made out to the caravan that is pushing its way from Honduras and Guatemala to the Southern Mexican border where they intend to enter America. That mob now numbers 10,000 by latest estimates, with new caravans joining them as they march through Mexico.

It looks like there will be a huge backlash against George Soros for his exploits like the latest caravan, planning to break into the United States, with us supporting them when they get here, while they intend to remake this country into the countries they left.

The bomb in the mailbox was a demonstration of the last straw for this Hungarian intruder who intends to be the Potentate of the World. It will not be surprising to see more of this agitated chaos.

Mueller Has Already Interfered in the Election—and Obstructed Justice

Mueller Has Already Interfered in the Election—and Obstructed Justice

By | 2018-10-22T21:56:35+00:00 October 23rd, 2018|

As November 6 approaches, news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is waiting until after the election to reveal the conclusions from his investigation belie a deeper, more disturbing point. Although Mueller’s decision is allegedly predicated on a desire to avoid even the appearance of impacting the vote, according to Justice Department policy and tradition the truth is Mueller already has interfered in the election.

Every shaky indictment, every illegal leak, and every sensational “breaking news!” bit of media speculation continues his interference in the election. All of these affect the media’s daily coverage of the story, which is overwhelmingly biased against the president and Republicans generally.

The Nakedly Partisan Nature of Mueller’s Remit
Casting aside all pretense of journalistic objectivity, the ethically conflicted “newsrooms” of the major legacy networks are hoping that Mueller will intervene in the election by dropping some kind of legal bombshell on the Trump family, inner circle, or administration in the run up to the vote.

Citing the Mueller probe, the only platform most Democrats are running on is one of investigation and impeachment of Trump, and several openly state—as fact—that Trump has committed treason by “colluding” with Putin. The lack of evidence or even a believable motive on the part of either Trump or Putin does not bother them. This is just spun as “all the more reason to keep investigating.” Being against Trump and convinced he is guilty is all they’ve got.

So to argue that his investigation hasn’t yet affected the election is pure jabberwocky; its mere continuation in itself is interference in our political process. Moreover, it has demonstrably affected the polls. It’s the only reason the Democrats can claim to have a “blue wave” building in their favor.

As to Russia, it had far more kompromat on Hillary Clinton, and the Russians have a proven track record of benefiting from her brazen pay-to-play schemes, exposed by WikiLeaks. Why would Russia use WikiLeaks to expose that bribe-worthy fact before she could be safely installed as president? Russia has a national self-interest in seeing the United States become a geopolitically weaker player. Clearly, if Moscow invested in Trump over Clinton to achieve this, Putin must not be as clever as they say. No: It’s all nonsense.

The legacy media’s shameful lack of coverage of the Clinton campaign’s paper trail of collusion with foreign spies, media plants, and rogue Obama Justice Department political operatives, mirrors Mueller’s curious lack of interest in the same. This lack of curiosity about the Democrats also affects the polls. Half the voting public is completely unaware of the facts surrounding the Obama Administration’s efforts to run interference for the Clinton campaign and then to frame Trump.

The indictment of James A. Wolfe, former longtime Senate Intelligence Panel security director, illustrates better than anything the degree to which opposition to Trump was literally in bed with the media to leak classified information selectively and impact the news cycles for the last two years.

A deluge of classified leaks led to the inglorious downfalls of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former Director James Comey. Comey’s firing by Trump then spawned Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel—a curious choice, given Mueller’s longtime mentorship of Comey, and Rosenstein’s own role in firing him.

In the least charitable interpretation of Mueller’s decision to withhold information from his team’s investigation, he is hiding behind the pretense of not wanting to be perceived as interfering with the election according to Justice Department tradition, precisely in order to maximize that interference to advantage the president’s political opponents unfairly in the election.

Why? Because he’s got nothing. To act before the election would mean shutting down and effectively exonerating the president before the voters head to the polls. Instead he’s indicting Russian ghosts, just to keep the partisan Democrat-driven media narrative in the news.

In the most charitable interpretation, Mueller is cynically awaiting the election results to determine whether he writes a scathing report full of unproven innuendo so the Democrats have their grist for endless impeachment investigations—or, should the GOP hold onto Congress, a quiet wrap up.

If the Democrats win, the myth of his saintly integrity will be magnified and his abusive prosecutorial tactics will go down the memory hole, as they always have done in his “distinguished” career as a serial inquisitor of innocent suspects.

But for the dynamic of Mueller’s investigation, does anyone in his right mind believe the vaunted “blue wave” would have had any force (real or imagined) behind it?

Not with an economy cranking on all cylinders, unemployment across all demographic groups down to historic lows, and transformative geopolitical progress in Asia and the Middle East.

No way.

The Bottom Line
Mueller’s investigation in fact may be nothing more than an elaborate distraction operation to protect the real “colluders” with British and Russian agents in 2016 in the Clinton campaign and the Obama Justice Department.

We’ve seen this with the hyperpartisan composition of Mueller’s legal team, its grotesquely one-sided, helplessly single-sighted inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, solely and specifically to benefit Trump (as if there could be only one strategic Russian play), and the handful of barely related and mostly PR stunt indictments of Russian and Trump officials on made-up, process-induced, or completely unrelated prior crimes.

It’s the most audacious, hypocritical, and frankly criminal case of projection in American political history.

You might even say Mueller along with his Democrat and Republican #NeverTrumper apologists are still interfering in the 2016 election, still obstructing justice where Hillary’s server investigation and foreign spy-fed agitprop campaign is concerned, and still colluding with the media and foreign powers to obscure what happened between 2015 and 2017.

All this, so that the evidence of their own treacherous conspiracy with foreign interests, dangerous violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and abuse of the fearsome surveillance powers of the federal government never sees the light of day.

In other words, this investigation is giving the co-conspirators of 2016’s only provable election meddling another chance to interfere in the 2018 election, for the purpose of obtaining the result they wanted the first time.

On cue, Hillary Clinton is already, incredibly but quite predictably, telegraphing her intent to run again in 2020, and planning “speaking tours” to gin up interest in such a run.

So it’s come to this: November 6, 2018, may be our last chance to end the tragic 2016 injustice and subsequent two-year media-manufactured soap opera, once and for all.

If we miss this opportunity, we may very well lose the republic, too, because the multinational forces at work to keep the Trump-Russia collusion hoax afloat through the midterms, investing all their hope in Mueller, care only about the power of the D.C. elite.

They give not one fig, and cry only crocodile tears, for “our democracy.”

The Stealth F-35 Uses a “Threat Library” To Wage War. Here’s What That Means.

The Stealth F-35 Uses a “Threat Library” To Wage War. Here’s What That Means.

“It is part of a tech refresh effort for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that improves memory, storage, processing speed, display video and aircraft parametric data, industry developers said.”

by Kris Osborn

The Pentagon’s F-35 is conducting attacks, surveillance operations and combat missions with an updated on-board “threat library” of Mission Data Files engineered to identify enemy threats in key regions around the globe.“The AORs (Areas of Responsibility) for current operations where our forces are — currently have adequate Mission Data Files,” Vice Adm. Mat Winter, Program Executive Officer for the F-35 program, told a group of reporters.

Described as the brains of the airplane, the “mission data files” are extensive on-board data systems compiling information on geography, air space and potential threats– such as enemy fighter jets — in areas where the F-35 might be expected to perform combat operations, Air Force officials explained.

Despite some delays with development, involving software engineering and technical development at Eglin AFB, Fla., the process is now fully on track to finish by 2019, Winter said.

Naturally, Air Force senior weapons developers do not comment on specific threats in specific areas around the globe, developers do acknowledge the threat library will include all known and future threat aircraft — which of course includes advanced Chinese and Russian 5th-generation fighters. For security reasons, Air Force officials do not wish to confirm this or specify any kind of time frame for their inclusion.

Overall, there are 12 geographical regions being identified to comprise the library, service developers say.

Overall, there are 12 geographical regions being identified to comprise the library, service developers say.

Fighters (And Lost)

“We have not fully verified all Mission Data Files for all of the regions where we will operate, but we are slated to be ready by 2019,” Winter said.

The mission data files are designed to work with the aircraft’s Radar Warning Receiver engineered to find and identify approaching enemy threats and incoming hostile fire. The concept is to use the F-35s long range sensors to detect threats – and then compare the information against the existing library of enemy threats in real time while in flight. If this can happen at a favorable standoff range for the F-35, it will be able to identify and destroy enemy air-to-air targets before being vulnerable itself to enemy fire. For example, the mission data system may be able to quickly identify a Russian MiG-29 if it were detected by the F-35’s sensors.

“There is continued collaboration between intelligence and acquisition teams,” Winter said.

The Mission Data Files are intended to support the F-35’s sensor fusion so that information from disparate sensor systems can be combined on a single screen for pilots to lower the cognitive burden and quicken the decision-making process. New modules for mission systems will integrate into the F-35s Distributed Aperture System sensors and Electro-optical Targeting System.

The threat warnings generated by the F-35s Mission Data Files are designed to integrate with other on-board electronics such as targeting sensors, Much of this draws upon computer algorithms increasingly supported by AI, Winter said.

“Our fusion engine gets advanced sensors technology to rapidly identify and track targets without the pilot having to do all the work. This fusion is enabled by Mission Data Files,” Winter explained.

This concept regarding integrated threat warnings and the Missile Data Files is further reinforced in a Lockheed Martin engineering paper from early this year called “F-35 Mission Systems Design, Development and Verification.”

The paper provides technical detail on a number of F-35 technologies, including analysis of a system called AN/ASQ-242 Communications, Navigation and Identification system, or CNI. CNI provides beyond-visual-range target identification, anti-jam technology, radio navigation and, of great significance to Mission Data Files — “warning messaging” and “pilot audio alerts.” Part of its function includes “connectivity with off-board sources of information,” a function which bears great relevance to identifying specific enemy aircraft at great distances.

While many developers cite significant challenges when it comes to software development and integration for the F-35, the fighter is widely regarded as a “flying computer.” The “fusion” or technical integration on board the aircraft is engineered to access and leverage a wide range of data points and condense them for the pilot. In essence, surveillance, computer processing and targeting data are fused, as opposed to being stovepiped or separate sources. As a result, the technology also incorporates Identification Friend Foe (IFF) surveillance systems designed to quickly distinguish friendly from enemy aircraft.

The Pentagon is improving Mission Data File technology, in part, through an ongoing mission systems avionics upgrade, industry and military developers said.

It is part of a tech refresh effort for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that improves memory, storage, processing speed, display video and aircraft parametric data, industry developers said.

Lockheed Martin has been working with Harris Corporation to provide the computing infrastructure for new panoramic cockpit displays, advanced memory systems and navigation technology, senior Harris officials said in written statements.

The new hardware and software technology, to be operational on the F-35 by 2021, includes seven racks per aircraft consisting of 1,500 module components, including new antennas and weapons release systems.

Some of the components include an Advanced Memory System (AMS) engineered to improve data storage and generate higher resolution imagery to help pilots with navigational and targeting information.

Faster processors will also improve F-35 delivery of weapons enabled by the latest 3F software drop, such as the AIM-9X air-to-air missile. Improved radar warning receiver technology will more quickly identify enemy aircraft and integrate with the aircraft’s mission data files, or threat library.

The data processing increase is exponential, developers explain, as it enable measurements to take place in terabytes instead of megabits or megabytes.

The upgrades include a portable memory device which can quickly be transferred from a ground station to the F-35 cockpit.

While Air Force officials said that Mission Data File information on particular enemy platforms and specific global threat areas was naturally not available for security reasons, she did say the technology is now supporting the latest F-35 software configuration – called 3f.

“Mission data has been fielded in support of version 2B, 3i, and 3f,” Air Force spokeswoman Emily Grabowski told Warrior earlier this year.

As the most recently implemented software upgrade, Block 3f increases the weapons delivery capacity of the JSF, giving it the ability to drop a Small Diameter Bomb, 500-pound JDAM and AIM 9X short-range air-to-air missile, service officials explained.

The Air Force is already working on a 4th drop to be ready by 2020 or 2021. Following this initial drop, the aircraft will incorporate new software drops in two year increments in order to stay ahead of the threat. The service is also working to massively quicken the pace of software upgrades as a way to respond quickly to new threats.

Block IV will include some unique partner weapons including British weapons, Turkish weapons and some of the other European country weapons that they want to get on their own plane, service officials explained.

Block IV will also increase the weapons envelope for the U.S. variant of the fighter jet. A big part of the developmental calculus for Block 4 is to work on the kinds of enemy air defense systems and weaponry the aircraft may face from the 2020’s through the 2040’s and beyond.

​In terms of weapons, Block IV will eventually enable the F-35 to fire cutting edge weapons systems such as the Small Diameter Bomb II and GBU-54 – both air dropped bombs able to destroy targets on the move.

The Small Diameter Bomb II uses a technology called a “tri-mode” seeker, drawing from infrared, millimeter wave and laser-guidance. The combination of these sensors allows the weapon to track and eliminate moving targets in all kinds of weather conditions.

The emerging 4th software drop will build upon prior iterations of the software for the aircraft.

Block 2B builds upon the enhanced simulated weapons, data link capabilities and early fused sensor integration of the earlier Block 2A software drop. Block 2B will enable the JSF to provide basic close air support and fire an AMRAAM (Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile), JDAM (Joint Direct Attack Munition) or GBU-12 (laser-guided aerial bomb) JSF program officials said.

Following Block 2B, Block 3i increases the combat capability even further and the now operational 3F brings a vastly increased ability to suppress enemy air defenses.

Khashoggimania and Our Islamist Colluding Media

Khashoggimania and Our Islamist Colluding Media

After Egypt, Libya and Syria, will we stop falling for the same lies?

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

In 2014, Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post’s Tehran Bureau Chief, was arrested and spent two years in prison. Iran kept him in one of its worst prisons, he slept on a damp concrete floor, was denied medical treatment, experienced hallucinations due to sleep deprivation and was abused by his captors. His wife was told that her legs would be cut off and her husband would be thrown off a cliff if she didn’t confess.

While Jamal Khashoggi has often been misidentified as a Washington Post journalist, all he did for the radical leftist paper owned by Amazon’s CEO is write editorials promoting the Muslim Brotherhood agenda. The Muslim Brotherhood leader and former Bin Laden pal was never a journalist. The closest he came to it was acting as a terrorist propagandist in Afghanistan, glamorizing Osama bin Laden, on behalf of a man listed by the Treasury Department as one of “the world’s foremost terrorist financiers.”

And yet the arrest and abuse of Jason Rezaian didn’t touch off a fraction of the outrage from his own paper as the possible death of Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudis. The media went through the usual formal protests, but the outrage was muted and there was no talk of sanctions. Instead, Rezaian, along with some other hostages, was illegally ransomed after two years by Obama for $400 million.

The media did not vigorously campaign to break off relations with Iran, as it now is with Saudi Arabia. 

It didn’t push too hard out of fear of spoiling Obama’s dirty nuclear deal with Iran’s terrorist regime. And even the arrest may have taken place, according to some sources, because of Rezaian’s closeness with some regime figures.

The New York Times showily announced that it was suspending its pricey Saudi tours over Khashoggi, but it never stopped its Iranian tours, not over Rezaian’s imprisonment, or the killing, torture and rapes of Iranian protesters. 

The Washington Post rolled out a special Jamal Khashoggi edition, but there was no special Jason Rezaian edition. There were fewer news stories about Rezaian’s imprisonment after two years than there have been after a week of Khashoggimania. The Post and the rest of the media did far less for Rezaian, one of their own, than they were willing to do for Khashoggi, a shady Islamist activist.


The answer has everything to do with the media’s political agendas. It is not concerned with human rights. And it’s even less interested in freedom of the press. It has no principles, only allegiances.

The media will always favor Islamist movements over non-Islamists. 

The media underreacted to Rezaian’s arrest because it supported Iran’s Islamist government. It overreacted to Khashoggi’s disappearance because he is an Islamist leader. And under Mohammad bin Salman, the Saudis, once the hub of regional Sunni Islamism, turned against the Muslim Brotherhood.

The media is raving against Mohammad bin Salman because he opposes Iran and the Brotherhood. It repeats every piece of propaganda from Turkey and Qatar because they back the Muslim Brotherhood. 

If the Saudis turn around and support the Muslim Brotherhood, the media will happily let them kill as many reporters, journalists, hacks and pundits as they like. The media does not care about human rights. It cares only about the triumph of Islamist political movements and it will tell any lie on their behalf.

The scandal of the Khashoggi case is not whatever the Saudis or anyone else did to Osama’s old friend. It’s that the Washington Post provided space for a Muslim Brotherhood leader to push the agenda of America’s enemies, and is colluding in a political campaign to overthrow the Saudi government.

The Washington Post is not “investigating” Khashoggi’s death, it’s spreading smears from the Turkish regime’s pet media while pressuring American lobbyists to drop the Saudis. Khashoggi’s death is just another tool for implementing regime change in Saudi Arabia and replacing its king with another ruler who will return the oil power to its usual stance of supporting Islamic terrorists and fighting Israel.

That’s what Khashoggi wanted. It’s what the Washington Post and the rest of the media want.

The truly disturbing thing is not Khashoggi’s death. It’s his life. Khashoggimania exposes an alliance between the media and the Islamists. Human rights is the cover for this red-green alliance, just as it was in the Iranian Revolution and the Arab Spring. The differing media reactions to Khashoggi and Rezaian, parallel the differing reactions to the Green Revolution and the Arab Spring, to human rights abuses in Egypt under Morsi and under Sisi, and in Turkey under military rule and under Erdogan.

There is a consistent pattern, not of human rights principles, but of Islamic expediency. 

The media will occasionally report on human rights abuses by Islamists. But it will do so in a cursory fashion, without incendiary outrage or calls to action. It’s only when reporting on Islamist protests against non-Islamist regimes that the media will shift from being bystanders to becoming activists. 

When human rights abuses occur in Islamist countries, such as Iran, the media will emphasize the importance of liberalizing them by maintaining ties with them. But when Islamists claim human rights abuses at the hands of our allies, such as Egypt, the media will urge us to break ties with them. 

Saudi Arabia is only the latest to fall afoul of this ubiquitous double standard. 

When the Saudis were sponsoring Islamist terrorists, including Al Qaeda, we were repeatedly lectured on the importance of maintaining relations with them in order to liberalize them. But once the Saudis actually began making some small steps toward liberalization, the media wants to break ties with them.

Like Khashoggi, the media does not want actual liberalization. When Khashoggi  talked about democracy, human rights and freedom of speech, he meant those as political tools for a Muslim Brotherhood takeover. And then, just as in Erdogan’s Turkey or Morsi’s Egypt, they would end.

Khashoggimania has proven beyond the faintest shadow of a doubt that the media thinks the same way.

When the media wanted Saudi Arabia to liberalize, it didn’t mean women driving cars. It meant just enough political liberalization to enable Khashoggi and the Muslim Brotherhood to take over.

The media wants to do to Saudi Arabia what it did to Iran, and what it did to Egypt. When the media talks about, “liberalization” in the Middle East, read it as, “Islamization.” 

The media did not form an alliance with Islamists of its own accord. Its pro-Islamist agenda is not the work of mere lobbyists, as some have claimed in the past, otherwise the Saudis would be riding high. Khashoggimania casts light on a deeper alliance between the red elites of America and the green elites of the Middle East, between Qatar, Turkey and Iran, and between a radical establishment in America.

Both the red and the green elites fuse revolutionary ideological movements with state power. Our red media echoes the conspiracy theories and talking points of the green media of Turkey and Qatar. Neither are a free or independent press in any truly meaningful  sense of the term. The Washington Post and Al Jazeera are just two sides of the same coin. Khashoggimania is a shared regime change operation.

Every Islamist regime change operation has been advanced under the guise of human rights. It’s time that we stopped being fooled by the same lies, and started asking some hard questions. After the Iranian Revolution and the Arab Spring, those questions are more urgent than ever.
