George Soros’ Secret War Manual to Nix Trump

by Rev. Austin Miles

Erasing history is the goal of George Soros. A country that does not know its history has lost part of its soul, which weakens it. Censoring speech, banning books along with current commentaries including some on Social Media, as well as hiding all reminders of the strength of the U.S. are all essential weapons to push America into Soros’ New World Order. Reminders of America’s strength are shown by statues, photos, and written records, which are all presently under attack.

Statues of historic leaders that have stood for over a hundred years are at this moment being pulled down and pulverized.  Kelleigh Nelson, founder of the news-site: Exposing Modern Mugwumps, used this phrase, “Monumental Stupidity” when reflecting on the madness of bulldozing statues of leaders: “Excellent description.

Even simply being white is now under attack. Stanford University has just introduced a new course, Abolishing Whiteness, which is built upon the systematic privileges afforded to whites in Western Society. How’s that again? Yes this is STANFORD University where students pay a small fortune to gain their wisdom. And this is an example!

Below is a quote I just found while browsing some books. It is incredible how accurately it explains life and our future. Read this carefully:

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists, except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

And whose quote is this?  George Orwell in his book, “1984,”

This book was published on June 8, 1949, 60 years ago. Orwell was dying in a tuberculosis sanitarium when he wrote it.  At that time, three men were figuring out how to divide the world, Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt.

The original ideology behind this impulse may be communist or fascist, or nationalist or corporate or institutional, but the methods by which it proceeds are in each case the same: the stamping out of the capacity for individual thought and freedom, not merely by physical force but by a complete denial of privacy and by the control of all information, even to the extent of policing the language in which thoughts are expressed. Yes, this is Stalinistic.

The world Communist leader, George Soros has funded a 49 page secret war manual for destroying the Trump Administration and regaining Democrat-COMMUNIST control of Congress. This in itself lays the groundwork for Treason and Sedition charges to be filed against Soros. DO IT!

Bishop E.W. Jackson in an article wrote: “President Trump is being attacked by a hostile liberal media, undermined by a Deep State full of Obama/Clinton holdovers and betrayed by some GOP “Never-Trumpers” who will never accept him as president.”

Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel wrote in his newsletter: “The battle lines are drawn, and the future of the country is at stake. David Brock of Media Matters, a George Soros-funded leftist “think tank,” has issued a 49-page secret war manual for destroying the Trump Administration and regaining Democratic control of Congress.”

It calls for impeachment of the President, a de facto coup d’état. Ultimately, this is not merely an attack on Donald J. Trump. It is an assault on the presidency, the Constitution and the people who voted for change. Fair-minded people, whether they be Democrats or Republicans, are shocked by the complicity of the mainstream media in trying to overthrow the President.

It’s time for Americans to be heard again in congressional offices, town hall meetings, rallies and on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. The message is simple. To the President: We stand with you. Demand that George Soros be charged and prosecuted for Treason and Sedition. All the elements are there for that case.

Notice how George Soros deceptively names his non-profit 501(c)3 hit teams to suggest they are patriotic: For example one particularly active one is Democracy Alliance which was formed specifically to undermine the Trump agenda as well as America itself.

A full-on trench warfare against Trump from Day One.

Immediately after the election of Donald Trump, Soros and his wealthy cronies in the Democracy Alliance (DA) vowed to relentlessly fight the President and his agenda.

According to Politico, Soros and other liberal leaders — including Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren, and Keith Ellison—a Muslim, met to “plan trench warfare against Trump from Day One.” They want to make all the decisions regarding our lives.

Plus … as reported on the Democracy Alliance website, President Gara LaMarche mercilessly derided the President’s agenda at a recent summit:

“We now have a President, with the most extreme anti-government Cabinet in generations, determined to advance this agenda at the federal level and undermine democratic norms from freedom of the press to the independence of the judiciary.

“These assaults on democratic processes and systems hurt working families, endanger our environment and public health, erode faith and trust in government, delegitimize democratic institutions, and undermine the capacity of government at all levels to deliver basic services. We have much to resist.”

That far-left rhetoric is echoed by the mainstream media. As a result, President Trump faces and confronts these distortions daily as he attempts to fulfill his “Make America Great Again” promises.

We must join the President and stand against leftist ideologies, like those espoused by George Soros’ leftist groups!

The new Civil War has started. With the riots, destruction and chaos on the streets, is Martial Law far behind? How about Citizen Militias? One thing for sure, it is way past time to arrest and charge George Soros with Treason and Sedition.

Meanwhile, be of good cheer. Hillary Clinton announced that she is going to be a Methodist Pastor. This may cause pulpit palpitations since ‘ye shall NOT know the truth and the lie will not set ye free but it will be a high profile church and should attract quite a crowd.

ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY

Arrest Maria Chappelle-Nadal – Missouri State Senator Called for the President’s Assassination

By Chip McLean

Maria Chappelle-Nadal
Maria Chappelle-Nadal – Missouri state senator who said she hopes that Trump is assassinated.

An imbecilic state senator from Missouri has called for the President’s assassination. We need to call for her arrest…

There is freedom of speech which certainly allows for political disagreement. Advocating for the assassination of the leader of the free world is clearly not protected speech.

On her Facebook page Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-Mo. State Senate) wrote (since deleted) “I hope Trump is assassinated!”

Considering this looney-tune is a member of a state senate, it makes her statement even more egregious. At the very least, it demonstrates a clear mental incapacity in failing to realize exactly how serious this is. Did she learn nothing from the Kathy Griffin incident?

With it becoming more evident each day that the “tolerant” left is not in the least tolerant and resorts to violence, an example of Ms. Chappelle-Nadal should be made – especially given her position of responsibility to the public. Arrest her – now.

This has become Bizarro-World. Throughout the previous eight years of the Obama Administration – one that basically kept giving its middle finger to middle America, I stridently opposed Obama’s policies – as did millions of us. We watched as his “fundamental transformation” of America amounted to an effort to destroy the nation’s founding principles of individualism and liberty. Never in all of my consistent opposition to Obama did it ever occur to me that I should advocate for his assassination. I also don’t recall any elected Republican official calling for such.

The fact is that whether I liked it or not, Obama was elected as our president.

What Ms. Chappelle-Nadal – and her fellow travelers on the left need to get – is that now Donald Trump is our duly elected president. They’re more than welcome to disagree with him, peacefully protest against him and so forth. But to advocate violence, assassination and other unlawful activity? No, that is most assuredly not protected speech. To use a phrase that the left has been habitually using, “That is not who we are.”

Yes, arrest her and put her derriere in jail where she belongs.

Well, As Long as We’re Demolishing “Racist” Statues…

By Jim O’Neill

As long as the Left is determined to tear down historic symbols of racism, I say we help them out and point them toward some statues and portraits of real racist scumbags.  The country has any number of former Democrat racist “worthies” that will fit the bill quite nicely.

A hat tip here to the actor James Woods for suggesting that we tear down a statue of the late Democratic Senator Robert Byrd.  Seems to me that Byrd, who was once an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan (a position that the reviled Robert E. Lee never dreamed of holding) is a prime candidate for black racists to scrub from history.  Byrd, the so-called “Conscience of the Senate” once filibustered for 14 hours against civil rights for blacks.  Why aren’t blacks demanding that statues honoring him be removed?

What about the late Democratic governor and presidential candidate George Wallace?  “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!”  I don’t know about any statues, but there’s a big ol’ painting of him in the Alabama State Capitol Building in Montgomery.  As an extra bonus/incentive to anyone who might be inclined to visit there’s a “stars ‘n’ bars” flag painted in the background.

There’s Democratic icon President Woodrow Wilson.  This racist believed that black slaves were by and large a happy bunch (perhaps even a bit spoiled).  He spelled it out for those of us ignorant of this “fact:” “…Domestic slaves…and almost all who were much under the master’s eye, were happy and well cared for.”  Sho nuff Massa Wilson.  Those who beg to differ with President.Wilson will find a plethora of statues, paintings and whatnot to direct their attention toward.

The perception that black slaves had it good (lucky devils) seems to have been widely shared among Democrats.  For example, the following quote is from Democratic Senator John C. Calhoun.  He is comparing the “benign and fortuitous circumstances” of black slaves in America, with less fortunate and destitute poor free whites in Europe.

I believe when two races come together which have different origins, colors, and physical and intellectual characteristics, that slavery is, instead of an evil, a good, a positive good.                                              

 

…I may say with truth, that in few countries so much is left to the share of the laborer, and so little exacted from him, or where there is more kind attention paid to him in sickness or infirmities of age. Compare his condition with the tenants of the poor houses in the more civilized portions of Europe–look at the sick, and the old and infirm slave, on one hand, in the midst of his family and friends, under the kind superintending care of his master and mistress, and compare it with the forlorn and wretched condition of the pauper in the poorhouse.  [Italics added]

John C. Calhoun, Democratic Senator from South Carolina, seventh Vice President of the United States.  From comments made on the US Senate floor February 6, 1837

Those Democrats…always looking out for the welfare of others — plus ça change, plus cest la meme chose, nest ce pas?  There are several statues of John C. Calhoun available for perusal should you happen to disagree with the late Democratic Senator’s take on things.

Well that’s enough from me.  I just wanted to help out a bit and get folks headed in the right direction.  If you want to find statues and paintings honoring racists, then I recommend researching Democratic politicians, especially prior to the mid-1960s.  It’s a cornucopia of racism.  I promise you will not be disapponted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outing Left Wing Fascists-Nazis

By Jim O’Neill

I, like most of my fellow Republicans and conservatives, was a victim of the progressive paradigm, embedded in all our institutions of culture, from academia to Hollywood to the media.  …the story that we had accepted, like suckers, was the idea that fascism and Nazism are inherently “right wing.”

Dinesh D’Souza “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left

For some years now I have been shouting from the rooftops that the Fascists/Nazis were, are, and always will be a Left-wing phenomenon.  I have called it the “Big Lie” (e.g. “Right Wing Nazis: The Big Lie”), and I am delighted to see that Dinesh D’Souza sees this outrageous falsehood in the same light – naming his most recent book “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.”  (Unless otherwise stated all of the quotes in this article come from D’Souza’s book).

I say I am “delighted” because D’Souza has a much larger megaphone than I do, and in addition has a professional resume to die for.  That’s why Dinesh earns the big bucks, and I don’t.  On a more serious note, that is also why D’Souza has been incarcerated as a political prisoner in the United States and I have not.

This article is not a review of D’Souza’s book, nor is it a synopsis, but I will refer to it often as a touchstone throughout this article.  I highly recommend you purchase and read his book in its entirety, but in its absence this article will perhaps serve as a means to highlight some of its more important talking points.

I will not be spending any time discussing why I believe that left-wing Big Government bureaucracies are never a good idea.  From the gulags of Stalinist Russia to the killing fields of Cambodia, from the French Revolution’s “Reign of Terror” to the Nazi death camps, from Cuba’s murdered thousands to Mao’s millions, the history of horrific leftist “utopias” is there for anyone to see.  Watch Venezuela if you need a refresher.

Let me start by defining some terms.  What is a conservative?  Politically speaking a conservative is, not surprisingly, someone who wishes to conserve, to save, something.  Not to put too fine a point on it, that something that we wish to conserve is freedom, our individual liberty.  That means that conservatives try to rein in or restrain government (for as government grows freedom shrinks).

Opposed to the conservative viewpoint is the, well, it goes under a variety of names…I’ll simply call it the liberal/progressive/globalist/communist/socialist/statist, or fascist viewpoint – which is in favor of a huge, bloated, bureaucratic government that controls every aspect of our lives, to one degree or another.  The bigger and more controlling the government the better to the leftist mind (a hive mind; group-think marionettes marching in lockstep, excepting the puppet-masters of course).

All of the various ideologies I mention in the paragraph above are variations on a theme – that theme being Big Government.  Although there are differences between them all, they have much more in common with each other than with any pro-capitalist, pro-freedom conservative ideology.  For example, communism has much more in common with fascism than either has with conservatism.

Now might be a good time to bring up the question: what is fascism exactly?  The Left would have us believe that either (1) fascism is a right-wing ideology, or (2) the answer is so muddled, arcane, obscure, and convoluted that no simple answer is possible.  Both of the “answers” that the Left tries to palm off on us are nonsense.  They are lies, big lies.

Fascism is a Big Government ideology, and as such belongs firmly on the left side of the political spectrum (on the side opposite from the restrained and reined in government, right-wing side of things).

In the past, I have pointed to the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) as being the popularizer of fascism (he coined the term), but he didn’t just come up with the concept of fascism in a vacuum.  Where did Mussolini get his ideas from?  Good question.

“Think about this: we know the name of the philosopher of capitalism, Adam Smith.  We also know the name of the philosopher of Marxism, Karl Marx.  So, quick, what is the name of the philosopher of fascism?  Yes, exactly.  You don’t know.  Virtually no one knows.  My point is that this is not because there were no foundational thinkers behind fascism…but rather that the Left had to get rid of them in order to avoid confronting their unavoidable socialist and leftist orientation.  …This is the big lie in full operation.”

Giovanni Gentile

Giovanni Gentile (1875-1944) and Mussolini co-authored “A Doctrine of Fascism” (1930) which is often attributed to Mussolini alone.  “It was Gentile,” said Mussolini, “who prepared the road for those like me who wished to take it.”

Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State….  The Fascist conception of the State is all embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value.

Gentile, Mussolini “A Doctrine of Fascism”

During the first half of the 20th century Gentile was considered one of the world’s premier philosophers.  Today he is hardly known at all.  This “burying” of Gentile has been done quite intentionally.  If his teachings were to become widely known then the similarity between his teachings and the modern progressive agenda would become all too apparent.  At all costs the similarities between fascist and progressive thought must continue to be hidden, or else the Big Lie would be in danger of being exposed.

“The Left has the desperate need to conceal fascism’s association with contemporary leftism.  Even when the Left uses Gentilean rhetoric, its source can never be publicly acknowledged.  …the progressives intend to keep Gentile where they’ve got him: dead, buried, and forgotten.”

In closing this short segment on Giovanni Gentile let me note that by all accounts he was a decent man and not some mouth-frothing demagogue.  He ran a good race but on the wrong track – it happens.

In keeping with their cannibalistic leitmotif the Left ate their own and Gentile was assassinated by a rival leftist faction in 1943.

Martin Heidegger

Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) burst on to the public scene in 1927 with the publication of his philosophical work “Being and Time.”  Below is a small sampling from the book.

“‘Being’ is not something like a being.”  Being, Heidegger claims, is “what determines beings as beings, that in terms of which beings are already understood.”

Martin Heidegger “Being and Time

Yeah, I know, that’s what I think too.  But the Left’s intelligentsia eats that kind of stuff up like nobody’s business.

As D’Souza notes, “Being and Time” laid the foundational groundwork for beloved leftist causes as diverse as deconstructionism, radical ecology, anti-capitalism, anti-Americanism, identity politics, and secularism (atheism).  What a guy, huh?

There’s just one teensy fly in the ointment…maybe not so teensy.  Heidegger was an unrepentant Nazi.  I don’t mean that Heidegger happened to be in Germany while Hitler was in power.  I mean Heidegger was full-fledged Jew hating, Seig Heiling, Horst-Wessel singing, Nazi.true believer.

The Fuhrer alone is the present and the future German reality and law.  Heil Hitler!

Martin Heidegger “Political Texts 1933-34, German Students, Nov. 3. 1933

This, as you might imagine, presented the Left with a bit of a conundrum.  How do you laud and celebrate a blatant Nazi without letting the cat out of the bag?  That is, how can you carry on with the Big Lie that the Nazis were a right-wing party when one of the most influential and important molders of left-wing ideology was a dyed-in-the-wool Nazi?   Hmm.

First the Left denied that Heidegger was a Nazi…well, certainly not a bad Nazi, not one of those Nazis, and that worked pretty well until Heidegger’s so-called “Black Notebooks” began being published in 2014 – then, not so much.  Turns out that Heidegger was one of those Nazis.

Anti-Semite or not, Heidegger’s students included Jews Leo Strauss, Hannah Arendt, and Herbert Marcuse – Marxist/Fascist extraordinaire Herbert Marcuse.

Herbert Marcuse

Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979) did so much damage to American culture, in so many ways, that he is unquestionably ensconced in the pantheon of “Great Enemies of Western Civilization.”

“Marcuse knew that Heidegger’s hatred for individualism, capitalism, and “Americanism” were shared by both fascists and Marxists.  Precisely for this reason, Marcuse believed a fusion of Marxian socialism and Heideggerian fascism was a logical synthesis.”

Communism and fascism typically do not play well together (e.g. The “Spanish Civil War” 1936-1939, Hitler/Stalin), but Marxism and fascism get along like peas in a pod, and it was just such a poisonous cocktail of Marxism and fascism that Marcuse injected into America’s culture.

Communist party faithful had been in the habit of calling anyone they disagreed with a “fascist” (e.g. right-wing) long before Marcuse came along, but many people at the time (early post-WW II) still saw communism and fascism as being left-wing variants.

Marcuse, and his fellow “Frankfurt School” alum, Theodor Adorno, changed all that and pulled off the neat trick of convincing people that left-wing Nazis were in fact right-wing conservatives.  That was no mean feat – give credit where it’s due.

Both Adorno and Marcuse were Jews who had fled Nazi persecution in Hitler’s Germany, so they automatically had street cred from the get-go.  Who better to ask what a Nazi was or was not, right?

Right.  So Adorno and Marcuse, who had little success peddling their Marxist/Socialist wares, decided to become ANTI-NAZI crusaders – and that gambit took off like a rocket.

“This, after all, was the post-World War II era.  America had just waged war against the Nazis, and after the war Nazism became the very measure of evil.  So, Marcuse and Adorno knew that anything associated with Nazism or fascism would automatically be tainted.  They set about putting this obvious fact to political use on behalf of the political left.”

Adorno fired the first shot with his 1950 bestseller “The Authoritarian Personality.”  Adorno included a scale to rate fascism on, which very conveniently for the political left just so happened to resemble a check list of conservative values.

 

Adorno’s value to such people [leftists] is that he empowers them to say, “Down with fascism!  Now let’s get rid of conservatism and expose those evil people on the right.”  And today Adorno’s deception enables the left to call Trump a fascist and Republicans the modern incarnation of the Nazi Party.  Only by understanding this big lie can we inoculate ourselves against it and correctly locate fascism and Nazism where they have always belonged—on the political left.

Dinesh D’Souza “Big Liar: How Theodor Adorno Redefined Fascism

One of Adorno’s more clever ploys was to equate fascism with repressed sexuality.  Knowing that “sex sells” Herbert Marcuse doubled down on Adorno’s gambit and ran with it…and how.  In his 1956 book “Eros and Civilization” Marcuse very cleverly packaged his Marxist/Fascist message in a “If It Feels Good Do It” wrapper.

College students were not slow to embrace Marcuse’s “Screw your way to being an anti-fascist” meme.  It’s a far cry from the pearl-clutching prudery the Left promotes on today’s campuses, but that’s the topic for another article.

Back in the day (1960s) the “sexual revolution” (caused in a large part by Marcuse) held sway and reverberations from it echo down to this day.  Something else that Marcuse promoted and popularized is also very much alive and well on today’s college campuses – total intolerance for opposing points of view.

 

In that cute way the Left has of naming things exactly what they are not, Marcuse called his rabid intolerance “Liberating Tolerance.”  It is, to my mind, the most Nazi-like and thuggish of his various vile creations.  His former Nazi teacher Heidegger no doubt thoroughly approved.

Certain things cannot be said, certain ideas cannot be expressed, certain policies cannot be proposed, certain behavior cannot be permitted….

Herbert Marcuse “Repressive Tolerance

I am going to move on now to discuss another leftist Svengali with Nazi connections.  But first let me say that this article should in no way be considered some sort of “Cliff Notes” synopsis of D’Souza’s book “The Big Lie.”  His book has much more to it than this brief article could begin to cover.  If you find this topic of interest please do yourself a favor and purchase or borrow a copy.

George Soros 

I wrote about Soros in September of 2009 (“Soros: Republic Enemy #1”).  Judging by reader response it is the most popular, or at least the most widely read, of the many articles I’ve written.  I received reader emails about it for years after it was first posted.

Nonetheless, Soros is not a topic I have returned to until now.  Do I have much new to say about him?  No, not really – except why he isn’t currently sitting in a prison cell is one of life’s great mysteries to me.

In any event, I’ll let Dinesh sum up (rather nicely I must say) what we have learned about Heidegger, Marcuse, and Soros.

“These three men had a deeply intimate relationship with Nazism, and their whole outlook was formed in response to it.  …In a sense, fascism drove these three crazy, and now they are trying to make us crazy.

We see how this trio of Heidegger, Marcuse, and Soros put its talents and resources behind thuggish leftist causes.  …Together this horrid trio played a big role in the destruction of our universities, the shameless leftist propaganda of the media, and the brownshirt tactics of progressives today.”

Conclusion

So what to do; how do we resist the tsunami of lies and leftist propaganda thrown at us 24/7 by the various “news” venues, Hollywood, celebrities, academia, the courts, and corrupt politicians?

First step is to wake up.  Know who you are, and know who your enemies are.  As Sun Tzu wisely pointed out millennia ago, if you don’t know yourself, and you don’t know your enemy, then you are in a hopeless no-win situation – but, if you do know yourself, and you do know your enemy, then you will go from victory to victory.

So, who are we?  We’re the “good guys.”  We are the salvation of freedom and the wall against tyranny.  We the People are the backbone of America and what made this country great, and will make it great again.  We are the true patriots who love and respect our country and salute her flag.

Do not buy into that leftist nonsense that patriotism is synonymous with fascism.  Bulls—t!  Mahatma Gandhi was a nationalist, so was Nelson Mandella.  Winston Churchill, who led Britain’s courageous fight against the fascists and Nazis, was a patriot of the first order.

Conflating love of country with fascism is absolute rubbish.  It’s a sad specimen of humanity who takes no pride in where they live.  Wanting to protect and cherish your home turf is not fascist – it’s common sense for God’s sake.

So, who is our enemy?  All those who would muzzle us, shackle us, rob us and scorn us.  I think you know who I mean.

We need to pick our fights wisely.  The recent riot in Charlottesville, Virginia, for example, was NOT a Left against Right confrontation.  The Main Stream Media is by and large either clueless or intentionally lying 99% of the time (in case you haven’t figured that out yet).  I pay very little, if any, attention to “news” coming from them.

The riot in Charlottesville was not Left against Right, as the media would have us believe.  It was an internecine fight between two leftist factions.  In short, it was Left against Left.  I doubt that any of the people involved realize that fact, but nonetheless it is true.  (I understand that there were also people there simply defending Confederate history, and/or protecting the right to free speech – I leave them out of this discussion).

The Nazi ANTIFA thugs were obviously left-wing, but what about the white supremacists, surely they were right-wing, right?  Wrong.

The so-called “Neo-Nazis,” or “Alt-Right” white supremacists are basically “Old Guard” leftist thugs, cast adrift by shifting leftist loyalties.  Anyone who has done their due diligence researching the history of the Democratic Party (without ideological blinders on) knows that the Ku Klux Klan and the Democratic Party were thick as thieves for a century.

As Dinesh D’Souza recently said in a “Fox News” interview “These white nationalists, who really belong in the Democratic Party, are in a sense politically homeless, because if they show up at multicultural picnic they’re Satan.”  My how the mighty have fallen.  The Democratic Party now has a “black racists only” policy – whites need not apply.

Just because the Left no longer wants the white supremacists does not by any stretch mean that they automatically belong to the right-wing by default.  They are political orphans, but that is their problem, not ours.  Nor, God forbid, should we make it ours.

At the end of the day it doesn’t make any difference what banner a tyrannical left-wing Big Government bureaucracy chooses to display – communism, fascism, globalism, whatever.  They all take away our freedom and replace it with ever-increasing rules and regulations, restrictions and demands.

We the People just need to know that whether we call them communists, Marxists, fascists, Nazis, globalists or whatever, they are Big Government and they are freedom’s enemy, they are our enemy.

We are currently blessed with a POTUS who has the potential to be one of America’s greatest presidents.  Every day that Trump is Commander-in-Chief is a good day in my book.  Let us be equally steadfast, bold, and courageous.

Proud American patriots who have gone before us would expect nothing less, and generations of Americans to come will admire we fortunate ones who were granted the privilege of standing tall during this time of travail.  Neither those from the past, nor the future, can speak — so we will be their voice, loud and clear.

 

 

 

Just ONE soda can do this to your body

Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from House Calls with Dr. Mark Stengler 8/15/17

It’s 2017, and no one’s under any illusions anymore.

Soda’s bad, right?

We all know that, yet I bet you’ve had a soda at some point recently.

Don’t be too hard on yourself over it — soda’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, so you’re hardly alone.

The reason it remains popular is simple: While we all KNOW soda is bad, most people think an occasional pop might not be too bad. If you’re one of them, you might order one, for example, just when you’re eating out.

But new research shows how that’s exactly when you SHOULDN’T have one!

While there’s no GOOD time to drink soda, the foods they’re often served with tend to be high in fat and high in protein.

Y’know… fast food. Big Mac and a Coke, right?

Eating any form of high-fat fast food with water would be bad enough, but the study finds that if you suck back a soda while you eat that junk, you’re not just getting extra calories from sugar.

This combo also slows the body’s fat oxidation by 8 percent.

That’s just what it sounds like: How you break down fat. When that process slows, you store more of that unsightly blubber, especially around your middle.

In other words, there’s more than a little truth to the old saying, “A moment on the lips, forever on the hips!”

That’s not the only damage, either.

In the study, volunteers were given meals with either a sugary drink or a sugar-free one while in a sealed chamber to measure their metabolism. Those tests revealed that the body fails to burn about a third of the calories that come from the drink itself.

And to complete the ugly picture, the body uses less energy overall when digesting a meal with a sugary drink.

Again, that’s everything you DON’T want. It means you’ll store more energy — in other words, your body will create more fat — instead of working off the meal and soft drink.

Don’t be tempted into thinking that diet soda is the healthier choice, simply because its immediate effects aren’t as bad.

Diet soda is, in many ways, just as unhealthy as regular soda. In some ways, it might even be worse.

Instead of losing weight, diet soda drinkers can often gain it — and studies show some may have a higher risk of diabetes to boot. One study earlier this year even found that diet soda can triple the risk of one form of stroke and boost the odds of dementia.

Drink water instead. Try infusing fruit or using herbal teas for flavor… or club soda if you need some fizz.

God bless,

Church Rapist Revealed-Identified!

by Rev. Austin Miles

A vicious rapist has kept the church of Jesus Christ in fear since 1954. Church leaders are afraid to speak out or to attempt to take any action. However, one of the many traits of the rapist is that he wants to intimidate, overpower, and to take anything he wants in a manner that discourages resistance. Many rapes are not reported because of the pressure and implied consequences.

The code name of this rapist is: 501(c)3. Yes, the church tax exemption number that a “benevolent” government issues to pastors and houses of worship which excludes them from paying taxes.  However, there is a price to pay since chains along with a gag order come with this government gift to churches.

With this government partnership that should never have happened, the churches are forbidden to take any kind of political stand, or discuss any kind of political issue including and especially abortion and sexual sins. And the feds monitor the pastors and their churches to be certain this stipulation is not violated.

So much so that the lesbian mayor of Houston made it law that every pastor in the Houston area had to submit an advance copy of their coming Sunday sermon to show that there are no political statements in the message involving LGBT. Fortunately that was only temporary since there was such a public outcry that the bill was scrapped.

Pastors became so constrained by the tax-exempt status, that they lived and worked in fear hoping they did nothing that would jeopardize that standing. Preaching against any sin was virtually abolished from the pulpits. The pastors did not want to lose the money they were saving by not paying taxes. Here we go again. Derelict of duty totally based on money.

First of all, it was never intended for churches and ministers to pay taxes. The churches took care of so much charity work, which saved the government tons of money, that the churches were tax free from the beginning. This point is emphasized in a book written by Rev. Carleton Booker which shows how to get a rightful tax exempt recognition without enormous fees, paper work and bondage. This ministry received our status with nothing but a modest filing fee using the instructions in that book.  Here is the link to a review of the details:

Even though it totally violated the “separation of church and state” (that was never in an official document), the state forced a partnership with the church. Weddings, which were always the sole function of the church, that issued the marriage license, suddenly required couples to pay for a state license in order to get married. Those marriages were not recognized as legal without that state imposed license.

Then, on July 2, 1954, Lyndon B. Johnson was irked that some churches objected to him running for a political office and spoke against him from their pulpits. Thus was born what became known as “The Johnson Amendment” which was passed by congress as an amendment to section 501(c) 3 of the federal tax code, which stated: “Entities that are exempt from federal income tax cannot, “Participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of–or in opposition to–any candidate for public office.” That is the date in history when the churches were muzzled.

And, by the way, I still am curious to know what Johnson really knew about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

One of my very favorite columnists is Coach Dave Daubenmire who writes for News with Views. He is totally wired in to the events of this world which he reports with corn field wisdom, which frankly is the best. I know how much I value my own down home country preacher, Rev. Steve Moore, with similar wisdom which blesses me every service.

oach Dave asked significant questions which this columnist failed to do and analyzed the situation.  And he nailed it!  In his column today he asks:” Did you know that some of the most God hating organizations in America hold the same symbiotic relationship with the government that most American churches have?  Did you know that Planned Parenthood is a 501(c)(3) organization just like your local church?  Did you know they are actively involved in politics? There is a video of a former Dallas Planned Parenthood Director speaking out about the “Monthly Abortion Quotas” that has been hidden from the public. It’s truly shocking.”  

NAMBLA–the North American Man Boy Love Association, an organization that intends to pass a law legalizing the sodomizing of children, yes, CHILDREN–little boys. And they are allowed to hold meetings in government facilities including libraries where children gather.

George Soros has almost two hundred 501(c)3 organizations for the sole purpose of taking down America, manipulating its politics to put our country into the New World Order under Communist dictatorship.  Yet the church, under that same legal protection can speak nothing about politics or sin.

Coach Dave goes on to ask: “How about the Southern Poverty Law Center?  Did you know that this Christ-hating organization has a similar tax exempt status as your church?  How about Right Wing Watch?  The Sierra Club?  Did you know that the ACLU is not Tax exempt…BUT…the ACLU Foundation is?  Can’t you see that these are simply different denominations of the religion of Atheism and Humanism doing all that they can to destroy Christian-America?

Yes, you read that right.  God-hating organizations have free speech rights…but Christian churches do not.  At least that is what the God-hating government wants you to believe. 

Just this week some emails were captured that prove that there is an organized war against President Trump and conservative Christianity.  The Left is doing everything they can do to overturn a duly elected Presidency. 

It clearly spells out the strategy to undermine America.  Oh…did I mention that the lead organization Media Matters is a 501(c)(3) organization…just like your local Christian church?  I thought tax exempt organizations were not permitted to get involved in the political process?  Only Christian organizations, I guess. 

The war is on and the war is real.  The Left’s tax exempt organizations exist to IMPACT politics while the Christian organizations exist to AVOID politics.  America hangs in the balance.

Yes, there is a rapist in town, and he is raping the church every hour of every day. It is time to put a stop to this and we can. Thank God we have a new president who will help us.

ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY

McMaster Targets And Terminates Trump Loyalists

Millions of Americans cannot tell you who lived at Mount Vernon or who wrote the Declaration of Independence, let alone the Emancipation Proclamation. But they know that to be a Benedict Arnold is to be a traitor of the deepest dye, someone who coldly betrays not only a sacred cause, but every moral scruple along the way. Arthur Herman

Trump loyalists are losing their jobs at the National Security Council and being replaced by those who have no allegiance whatsoever to our President’s campaign promises.  Well over fifty percent of the National Security Council staff are Obama holdovers who should have been gone over six months ago.

“It’s like the Bush years never ended,” notes one National Security Council staffer who didn’t come in under McMaster. “I didn’t sign up for this s**t and the American people didn’t vote for it.” Link

The staffer also doubts that Democrats are to blame for withholding security clearances, especially for those with ties to General Michael Flynn. The Pentagon under Secretary Mattis has been working with Senator John McCain to deny security clearances over the fictitious Russia investigation.

And, an ex-FBI agent warns that McMaster is in the enemy camp

Who Lobbied for LTG McMaster

Breitbart gave us the inside information from Jerusalem Post columnist, Caroline Glick.

Finally, there is the issue of how McMaster got there in the first place. Trump interviewed McMaster at Mara Lago for a half an hour. He was under terrible pressure after firing Flynn to find someone.

And who recommended McMaster? You won’t believe this.

Senator John McCain. That’s right. The NSA got his job on the basis of a recommendation from the man who just saved Obamacare.

Senator Tom Cotton also lobbied for McMaster having once served under him, and Defense Secretary Mattis did as well. [Link]

But the nationalists may have a competitive advantage: Trump, who already thinks McMaster is a “pain” who talks too much and has complained to aides that he wants Flynn back at the White House, is reportedly considering sending McMaster to replace Gen. John Nicholson as the top commander of American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. [Link]

John Kelly Supports McMaster

It seems that H.R. McMaster is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who is sabotaging the President’s agenda.  Remember, McMaster was caught leaking internal White House politics to now former Acting FBI Head Andy McCabe.

One would think that McMaster would shortly be out the door because he is not liked by Bannon or the President.  However, he allegedly has an ally in Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Kelly told McMaster that he wants him to remain, and actually authorized him to “make any staffing changes he wants.”  McMaster took that as a green light to oust top intelligence aide Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a Michael Flynn hire who has a warm relationship with Jared Kushner.  

In the past, McMaster attempted to rid the council of Cohen-Watnick, but was overruled by President Trump, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner.  Now, after months of trying, he has succeeded.

McMaster’s abhorrence of Bannon is quite obvious, as those who he’s fired were close to Bannon.  And the fact that he hired CFR and Trilateralist, Dina Habib Powell, a close friend of Valerie Jarrett and Huma Abedin, as his Deputy NSA Advisor for Security is extremely troubling.

 

 

 

 

Two separate National Security Council sources have confirmed that McMaster and Deputy NSA Dina Powell have leaked classified information at an unprecedented rate to their allies in the anti-Trump media, leading Congress to issue a report warning about its ramifications.

As for Kelly, Rush Limbaugh stated that Kelly called former FBI Director Comey when he was fired to express his anger over how Trump handled it.  Kelly allegedly told Comey he was even considering resigning over how Trump treated the former FBI director. [Link]

And… Breitbart is reporting that McMaster is frequently volatile.

Susan Rice and McMaster

Former Obama advisor, Susan Rice wanted General Flynn out, and she apparently helped make it happen.  After McMaster was selected, she tweeted to him that she hoped he could choose his staff and get rid of the Strategic Initiatives Group.  The Strategic Initiatives Group is a layer of the White House National Security Council that’s led by Mr. Bannon.  McMaster has stated that he believes Rice did not do anything wrong amid accusations of “unmasking” the identities of Trump associates.

He actually allowed Susan Rice to maintain her security clearance to access classified information, despite reservations Trump had about her motives.  McMaster sent an official secret letter to Rice informing her that she would maintain unfettered access to classified information, according to a report from Circa’s Sara Carter.

Why should Susan Rice still have a security clearance?  How is giving this known liar and power abuser access to secret data consistent with our national security?  Obviously, the NSA Director is serving an agenda that has no similarity to our President’s and is not based upon what is best for our nation.

The president was not aware of McMaster’s actions, according to two senior White House officials and an intelligence official, but obviously is by now.

McMaster Purges Trump Loyalists

Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick wrote that H.R. McMaster is purging pro-Israel staff from the National Security Council and turning the administration against President Donald Trump’s policies.

Glick noted that “all of these people” whom McMaster has recently fired, Rich Higgins, Derek Harvey, and Ezra Cohen-Watnick “are pro-Israel and oppose the Iran nuclear deal, positions that Trump holds.”

The president was not informed of the move until after Higgins was fired, according to one source who is in regular contact with senior NSC figures.

Published reports described Higgins’ firing as a “lasting victory” for McMaster over longtime Trump officials who helped get the president into office.

Meanwhile, Glick noted, McMaster has replaced pro-Israel officials with anti-Israel, anti-Trump officials, and he allowed anti-Israel Obama holdovers to continue in their jobs:

McMaster fires all of Trump’s loyalists and replaces them with Trump’s opponents, like Kris Bauman, an Israel hater and Hamas supporter who McMaster hired to work on the Israel-Palestinian desk. He allows anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk around the NSC and tell people what to do and think. He has left Ben (reporters know nothing about foreign policy and I lied to sell them the Iran deal) Rhodes’ and Valerie Jarrett’s people in place.

Victoria Coates, a Flynn hire who served as a senior NSC member until recently, has been reassigned at her request to the administration’s Middle East peace team. The move is being viewed as a promotion and it is expected she will continue to play a role in the Iran portfolio, sources said.

Another wonderful member of the NSC, K.T. McFarland who was the Deputy NSA under General Flynn is now the Ambassador to Singapore.

Glick expressed disbelief that Trump could fire former General Michael Flynn as NSA “essentially for nothing,” while allowing McMaster to attack Israel, and undermining the rest of the Trump administration’s foreign policy with impunity.

Caroline Glick said that Trump should not fear firing another advisor, and I agree with her.  McMaster’s agenda is totally different than the President’s.  He and his entire leftist staff need to hear the words, “You’re fired.”

Iran is the Catalyst

One of the central flashpoints in this internal battle has been Iran and the future of the nuclear accord, which Trump campaigned against.  The following info is from a report by the Free Beacon.

“McMaster basically has this list and over the next two weeks he’s going to phase out more senior officials loyal to Trump,” said one administration insider intimately familiar with the upheaval occurring at the White House National Security Council (NSC). “They’re taking out people who were chosen to best implement the president’s policy that he articulated during the campaign.”

All these moves have instilled fury both inside and outside of the administration and it’s obvious our President is being pushed in a direction which is antithetical to the campaign promises that brought him into office.

Many of these fired NSC officials had been making the case that Trump should scrap the Obama administration’s 2015 nuclear deal over increasingly aggressive Iranian ballistic missile activity and mounting evidence Tehran is breaching the accord. McMaster, as well as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and top Obama-era State Department officials who worked on the deal, have aggressively urged maintaining it.

Harvey Fired for Plan to Scrap Iran Deal

The reason Derek Harvey is out is because he had constructed a comprehensive plan on how to scrap the nuclear deal.

In the past, McMaster has refused to fire the Obama holdovers. Now-fired Middle East NSC director Derek Harvey compiled a list of Obama holdovers and took that list directly to the president, who requested that McMaster follow through with Harvey’s recommendations. McMaster outright refused.

A source described the Trump administration’s Iran policy as “completely gutted” in the aftermath of these firings.

“These were people who fought for Trump’s election since he was nominated,” said one of the multiple sources in close contact with the NSC. “Many of these people were in Trump Tower during the period between the election and inauguration. These are people who gave up everything to support him against Hillary, and these are the people being purged by McMaster.”

Rich Higgins Fired for Memo Critical of Islam

McMaster told the National Security Council staff that the label “radical Islamic terrorism” was not helpful because terrorists are “un-Islamic.” Link That has been his position for years. McMaster even sent memos throughout the government complaining of Trump’s usage of these words in the joint session of Congress speech.  That was Obama’s stance, but President Trump has used those very words many times.

Experts on Koranic law have openly stated that the Obama-McMaster interpretation of Islamic scripture is plainly wrong.  Obviously, McMaster doesn’t agree.

In a story by the Atlantic‘s Rosie Gray which detailed the firing of Higgins, it is clear where McMaster stands on the dangers of Islamic Radical Terrorists.

The story described a memo written by Higgins outlining how the Trump administration should wrest control of policy-making from career staffers hostile to Trump. McMaster is said to have gone on the “warpath” over the disclosure of that memo.

Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in the NSC’s strategic-planning office as a director for strategic planning, was let go on July 21. Higgins’s memo describes supposed domestic and international threats to Trump’s presidency, including globalists, bankers, the “deep state,” and Islamists. The memo characterizes the Russia story as a plot to sabotage Trump’s nationalist agenda. It asserts that globalists and Islamists are seeking to destroy America. The memo also includes a set of recommendations, arguing that the problem constitutes a national-security priority.

“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” the memo warns. It argues that this has led “Islamists to ally with cultural Marxists,” but that in the long run, “Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety.”

Higgins wrote the memo in late May, and at some time afterwards it began circulating among people outside the White House associated with the Trump campaign to whom Higgins had given it.

Higgins’s past writings focus on similar themes. “National Security officials are prohibited from developing a factual understanding of Islamic threat doctrines, preferring instead to depend upon 5th column Muslim Brotherhood cultural advisors,” he wrote in September. Higgins gave an interview to the Daily Caller News Foundation last year that outlines many of the same ideas laid out in the memo.

Higgins, according to another source with direct knowledge of the incident, was called into the White House Counsel’s office and asked about the memo. On July 21, the Friday of that week, he was informed by McMaster’s deputy Ricky Waddell that he was losing his job.

Another source said McMaster looked for evidence in the NSC’s email system to determine the name of the memo’s author “and then fired him.” [Link]

 

 

 

 

 

McMaster is following Susan Rice’s orders and eliminating all the people who came up with Trump and are genuinely loyal to him.

The security council continues to be overwhelmingly staffed with Obama holdovers (almost all of whom have retained their positions.)

So why then, is our President defending McMaster when conservatives are seeking his dismissal? [Link]

Pope Embraces Abortion-Osteen Caves to LGBT–SOROS AND SATAN REJOICE

By Austin Miles

 RONCO DI CASSATO, ITALY 8/5/17–Pope Francis, our first Communist Pope not only winks at abortion, and sin in general, but gives an apostate the pulpit in the Catholic Church to espouse her views during the service, the first which took place  this past July 26th in the Church of San Defendente, Ronco di Cassato.

 Emma Bonino has been given pulpit privilege by Pope Francis who publicly  stated that she was “among the great ones of Italy.” Journalist David Martin wrote in the Canada Free Press that he (the pope) acknowledged that “she thinks differently than us.” 

 Francis recommended patience with her adding, “You have to look at people, what they do.” Excellent suggestion. So what DOES Emma Bonino do?  Emma Bonino is an abortionist who says she is proud of the 6,000,000 (6 MIILLION) babies she has killed since 1968,  a grim-reaper task that she continues to this day. And she is welcomed by Pope Francis to speak in the Catholic churches? Something is terribly wrong with this picture..

 Not only is she a murderess, but daily commits extreme sin such as, promoting divorce, homosexuality, transgenderism, same-sex marriage,  the abolition of the armed forces, the disbanding of NATO, the liberalization of porn laws, mandatory sex-education, and the Communist insurgence of the west under the guise of immigration. And the pope himself not only welcomes her but allows her to speak to the Catholic Church directly?

 It is to be added that Bonino publicly praised Francis for “Changing the Catholic Church.” That he certainly did and continues to do. He has changed it so much that it is no longer the Catholic Church.

 Francis was a puzzle from the beginning. First, the future pope, Jorge Mario Berguglio, came out of nowhere. He was born and raised in a Communist country, Argentina.  We had no knowledge of him being in the College of Cardinals. But here is the key. George Soros has long had his fingers in the Vatican, has placed people there and has manipulated some of the policies coming from inside.

 When Francis suddenly became pope, with great secrecy surrounding the pageantry, the first words out of his mouth came straight from Marx’s Communist Manifesto: “We first must re-distribute the wealth.” He then went on to say that to be wealthy is a sin. I received a frantic call from a friend on the East Coast who was afraid she was going to hell because she was wealthy. Most of the things he said had an unmistakable Communist slant.

 It is to be noted that Pope Francis was presented a hammer and sickle crucifix from President Evo Morales.

 According the the prophecy of St. Malachy in 1131, the last pope would be revealed as the False Prophet. That would be about the same time as when the Anti-Christ is identified.  St. Malachy stated that the 112th  pope after him would be in place when that prophecy is fulfilled.  Pope Francis is indeed the 112th pope since that vision.  There is no question that George Soros put him in that position the same way he put Obama in position with the goal to take down America, the only country standing in the way of total world domination by Soros and his sons. This is what all this confusion is about.  Soros now intends to destroy the church itself. Then, he’s home free.

 Joel Osteen Caves to Gays?

 This columnist is very careful when writing about Joel Osteen. He is the object of such scorn by jealous pastors that I weigh any incoming news about him skeptically. In this latest story by WND, Joel apparently says that God does not reject anyone and the story makes it appear as though Joel has caved in to the homosexual lobby. According to WND, he did say this: “God absolutely APPROVES of everyone (emphasis mine) including homosexuals.” Not according to the Bible.

 Osteen is promoting a new book in which he says, “It doesn’t matter who likes you or who doesn’t like you, all that matters is God likes you. He accepts you, he APPROVES of you.” He went on to state all people must be acknowledged for who they are and expressed reluctance to “categorize” sin.  Isn’t that what pastors are supposed to do?

 That is the problem of our pulpits today. Sin is slipped under the napkin and stays there without being dealt with.  A pastor must address sin as it is addressed in The Bible. Osteen says in his book, “I believe every person is made in the image of God, and you have to accept them as they are, on their journey. I am not here to be preaching hate, pushing people down. I’m not here telling people what they’re doing is wrong.”  In other words, remain silent.

 So if a pastor doesn’t keep people on the right path and neglects to advise them when they are living beyond the guidelines as instructed by God in His Word, the Bible, then who will? Nobody. Church is closed.

 Osteen went on to tell Chris Wallace on Fox News that he doesn’t dislike anybody and believes gays are some of the “most loving people in the world.”

 Joel Osteen is truly a “good ole boy.’ He loves everyone and wants everyone to love him. He would not deliberately offend anyone. So it is easy to see how he could be caught in this trap of agreeing with the world. A pastor MUST show that he or she believes in something and will take a stand regarding that belief, especially the Bible, otherwise, what is the purpose of one being a pastor?

 Joel’s sermons encourage everyone which is not a bad thing, but this cannot be done in the absence of truth. Otherwise it is totally dishonest.  We are either servants of God or we are not.

 We would ask that Joel, whom this writer likes, ask interview hosts in advance not to bring up the subject of homosexuality or other dividing controversies. Let your interview be simply encouraging with Scriptures and success stories.

 Meanwhile, with two of the biggest names in Christianity in the news raising disturbing questions, George Soros and Satan are rejoicing and no doubt sharing a toast we all pay for and will be sorry for.

 This cannot go on. Unless we take a dedicated stand, we will lose our lives and our country.  It is up to the preachers to put a stop to this. PASTORS: MAN YOUR PULPITS!

Could IRON protect you from heart disease?

Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from House Calls with Dr. Mark Stengler – 8/3/2017

When it comes to iron levels, think of Johnny Cash… and keep a close watch on that heart of yours.

Because a just-out study finds a direct link between iron levels and heart risk.

If you’re falling short in this mineral, then your risk of coronary artery disease jumps. But if you get what you need, that risk plunges.

The researchers are planning to test iron supplements for patients at risk of heart disease in their next study.

“It could well be the case that if their iron levels are low, we could give them an iron tablet to minimize their risk of cardiovascular disease,” lead researcher Dipender Gill of Imperial College London said in a news release.

And that is an excellent idea.

But this is where you have to make like the Man in Black and walk the line between too much and too little, so you can get just the right amount.

While it might be tempting to dash out and buy some iron supplements, that’s exactly what you SHOULDN’T do!

Iron is an essential mineral, and you DON’T want to fall short. But you also don’t want to start taking supplements unless you’re ACTUALLY low — since too much of this stuff can also be bad for you.

You have to make sure you’re actually low before you turn to supplements.

Even that’s not as easy as it sounds. Most docs only test circulating iron and not your stored iron (a.k.a. ferritin). Without both tests, it’s impossible to get a true sense of what’s going on.

If your doc runs those tests and finds you really are low, work with him on figuring out the best way to raise your levels. If you need a supplement, he can help calculate the best dose.

Usually, you can pick up an entire year’s supply for about $10.

But don’t stop there.

Low iron usually has a cause. In older folks, poor diet, certain health conditions, and even common meds can all sap you of your iron.

The same doc who tested your levels should work with you to figure out and fix that cause — and then test you again to see if you still need supplements or if you’re getting enough from diet alone.

In addition, be sure to get your iron from a wide range of sources. The best are meats, especially beef, pork, and poultry. You can also get iron from greens such as spinach — but since that form of iron is harder to absorb, you have to eat more of them.

Call it a good reason to include a nice, big salad with every meal.

God bless,

Dr. Mark Stengler

A Short Primer on the Hierarchy of Identity Politics

Satire By Jim O’Neill

The other day I decided to rank the hierarchy of liberal victimhood and it turned out to be a thornier process than I thought it would be.

It is common knowledge that male privilege and white privilege automatically places white males at the bottom of the identity politics pile.  It stands to reason that, simply by default, black females must be at the top of the heap.  So, simple enough – black females are at the apex of the identity politics pyramid.

But then I read an article that threw that simple answer into question.  The article claimed that people of average or below average intelligence are victims of “cognitive privilege.”  That is, people of average or lower intelligence are victimized by people who are smarter.  This new insight meant that I had to go back to the drawing board and rethink my whole victimhood paradigm.

There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with. We are living in a society in which success is increasingly linked to one’s intelligence. …Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn.

 

Dan Williams, quoted in “Check your ‘cognitive privilege,’ all you smart people!” by Thomas Lifson

 

Personally, I believe that wisdom is much more important than intelligence, but we won’t go there just now.  To return to the topic at hand — if smart is bad, then ipso facto dumb is good. If given the choice between a smart black woman and a dumb black woman, the dumb black woman is obviously the more aggrieved party, the greater victim, and therefore beats out the smart black woman in the race to the top of the victimhood pyramid.  So, new winner – dumb black women.

 

Not so fast – what about transgender men.  Shouldn’t their victimhood supersede woman chauvinistically flaunting female gender privilege?  Of course it should.  So, the winner of the identity politics battle is not stupid black women, but stupid black men who want to be stupid black women.  It’s a no-brainer really.

But that begs the question — what about stupid black women who want to be stupid black men?  Now there’s a conundrum for you.

Who is at the apex, the pinnacle of liberal identity politics, the summum bonum of victimhood – stupid black men who want to be stupid black women, or stupid black women who want to be stupid black men?  I believe the jury is still out on that one.

I hope this short primer has helped to clarify things.  I hesitate to mention this, but there are more contenders than I have mentioned vying for the crown of “Biggest Loser in Identity Politics.”  I honestly don’t know how liberals keep track of all of their victims.  Kind of impressive in its own weird way.

OBAMA, SOROS AND ERIC HOLDER ARE BACK! TARGET TEXAS, ENTIRE COUNTRY FOR RE-DISTRICTING, BALLOT INITIATIVES

The Seditious And Toxic Atmosphere Of The Globalists

When did political differences become an excuse for lawlessness? Just as President Obama’s life was respected by conservatives who disagreed with him politically, President Trump’s life should be respected by liberals who disagree with him politically.

The Democratic Party, academia, Hollywood and the media have systematically created the toxic atmosphere we now have to contend with. They have set the tone for what is occurring today.  This is war…every Democrat and Republican like Sen. John McCain, his partner Lindsey Graham and Paul Ryan needs to be voted out.  The primaries are the most important votes we cast, and we need to fund and fight for the true and honest constitutional conservatives to run against the Democrats. The superb DVD documentary “Hollywood’s War on God” , reveals how satanic forces are using the movies.

The left needs to be destroyed, and that includes the left leaning Republicans. We all know who they are, Ryan, McCain, Collins, Graham, McConnell, and many more.  Our nation absolutely cannot survive more of these communist agitators fomenting rage because their globalist goals have been set aside by voters who chose freedom.

The Good News

Normally when there are run-offs and special elections, the opposite party of the president wins, but not this time.

Republican Greg Gianforte won the special election for Montana’s open US House seat, beating Rob Quist democrat.

Republican Ralph Norman won a special election to fill the South Carolina congressional seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney, battling to a victory closer than many expected to replace the new White House budget director.

Ron Estes, Kansas state treasurer, won the special election to fill the seat vacated by new CIA director, Mike Pompeo, in a district that President Trump carried by 27 points.

Republican Karen Handeldefeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a high-stakes special election for a Georgia House seat denying Democrats their first major victory of the Donald Trump era.

Granted, they did not win by huge percentages as those they were replacing had in the past.  The average loss of points was 13.  Nevertheless, a win is still a win, and the left is feeling the pain.

These wins are inciting and provoking more civil unrest promoted by the entire left and encouraged by the socialist media.

Hatred and Savagery

The left wants it their way or they will destroy what is left of the country. Look at the shootings, rioting, threats of violence, destruction of personal property, the constant theme of assassinations of our President, the words of hatred slung by them all with the added ‘benefit’ of the left’s success in eradicating what is left of societal decency.  We are looking at anarchy.   The character assassination of our President and his administration and the total refusal of the left to accept the outcome of a legitimate presidential election is the weapon they’re using.

The latest election results will increase their vitriolic and savage criticism against our President and conservative republicans.  In my lifetime, I have never seen such viciousness, and I want to know why these vile creatures are not being charged with sedition.  Common manners and decency were once the building blocks of our society, but today the left leads in decaying society’s respect and civility to others. They claim it’s their right under “freedom of speech.”  (Cornell University’s definition of sedition.)

Laws Limit Some Freedom of Speech

Under Title 18, Section 871 of the United States Code, it is a Class E felony for anyone to “knowingly and willfully” threaten to “take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States.”  Threatening the President is considered a political offense.

There are laws on the books that these people should be charged with, despite the freedoms of the first amendment. Certain types of speech are not protected by the first amendment: obscenity, fighting words, defamation (including libel and slander), child pornography, perjury, blackmail, incitement to imminent lawless action, true threats, and solicitations to commit crimes. Of course, libel and slander are rarely charged by public figures today since the 1964 supreme court decision in NYTs v. Sullivan wherein the court decided that media could lie with impunity about public figures unless the person could prove malice.  The court claimed this was a first amendment right of media.  The Warren court was stacked with six leftists and three moderates, so the unconstitutional verdict was 9-0.

Arrest the Seditionists

Andrew McCarthy’s recent article in National Review stated,

Whether it is Berkeley or Benghazi, it is standard operating procedure among the most influential, most allegedly mainstream Democratic politicians to rationalize rioting as mere ‘protest.’ In their alternative reality, violence in the name of sedition is ‘free speech’ — a passionate expression of political dissent — started me on this while the actual political speech they so savagely suppress is the atrocity.

What McCarthy went on to say reminded me of something my mother said long ago when I was a teenager and then a young adult.  She was right when she said that we were headed for a war of ideals…righteousness and freedom or slavery to the state.  God how I miss my amazing mother who started me on the journey to save America at the ripe old age of five.

One of the worst legacies of those 1960s Days of Rage was the failure of will to prosecute violent leaders of the radical Left to the full extent of the law — particularly the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Weather Underground terrorists who got a complete pass. In its madness, the nation drew a moral equivalence between anti-American terrorism and the excesses of American government agents who pursued the terrorists, as if warrantless searches and spying, however concededly outrageous, were comparable to plots and attempts to commit mass murder. The government did not want the depths of its misconduct explored, so charges were dropped in some cases and pled away for a song in others — denying an exploration of the depths of the terrorists’ depravity. “Guilty as sin, free as a bird,” crowed Ayers, waxing nostalgic on the eve of the 9/11 attacks.

The message could not be clearer: For the political Left in this country, violence in the pursuit of “social justice” is not to be condemned, it is to be understood. There is the occasional winking rebuke of the forcible methods, but the underlying “progressive” cause is always endorsed, and the seditionist vanguard is the object of adulation.

McCarthy is right when he says, “Sedition and its related pathologies must be prosecuted. Equally important, they must be condemned. Without that, there cannot be a pluralistic, flourishing society.”  So where are the Republicans, where is the Secret Service, where is the DOJ???

Seditious Sewage Spewed by Left

The big question is why these people are not arrested, some are not even visited by the Secret Service.

  • Everyone has seen the disgusting photo by Kathy Griffin. It is so imprinted on minds, that I do not want it in any of my articles ever again.  She has rightfully lost many engagements.
  • Shakespeare in the park and their bloody assassination of Caesar and his wife in which the Roman ruler is unmistakably depicted as Donald Trump, and his wife has an Eastern European accent. They’ve lost two sponsors, Bank of America, and Delta Airlines.

  • During a rambling disjointed speech, scruffy and aging Johnny Depp joked about killing Donald Trump at Glastonbury 2017, asking, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?” He was referring to John Wilkes Booth and the murder of Lincoln. Then he said, “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
  • Bernie Sanders supporter, Sarah Silverman is voicing her support for a military overthrow of the government, and telling her millions of twitter fans to join the resistance. What do they mean by resistance…violence and sedition?
  • Phil Montag, a Nebraska state Democratic party official, who was chairman of the technology committee, was fired after an audio recording surfaced earlier this week of him saying that he was “glad” that Scalise was shot and that he wished “he was f***ing dead.”

“This motherfer, his whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to fing kick people off of f***ing health care,” Montag is heard saying in the audio recording, which was published on the website talkrealsolutions.com.

“I’m glad he got shot. I’m not gonna fing say that publicly. I’m glad he got shot.”  “I wish he was fing dead,” he added.

Montag obviously doesn’t have a full grasp of the English language.

  • We all remember Madonna at the pussyhat women’s march led by Islamist Linda Sarsour, telling people, “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” She got herself an interview with the Secret Service, but again, why wasn’t she charged and arrested?
  • One of Snoop Dogg’s music video (literally) paints our President as a clown and orchestrates his death. At the video’s end, the rapper points a gun at the Trump figure and shoots. But instead of a bullet, a red flag that reads “Bang!” fires out of the gun.
  • Right after the election, shock-rocker Marilyn Mansonhad to take his turn in the Trump-bashing festivities. In one of his songs, a Trump-like persona wearing a suit and a red tie lies decapitated on a concrete floor, in a pool of his own blood.
  • Robert De Niro confirmed to ABC’s “The View” in February that he would like to punch Trump in the face. He clarified earlier comments, saying “It wasn’t like I was gonna go find him and really punch him in the face, but he’s gotta hear it.”

Really Bob?  Our president wants Robert Kennedy Jr. to look into the vaccines and autism, and you have an autistic child and wanted the VAX film shown and then backed down and you’re attacking our President?  Robert De Niro says his wife believes autistic son changed ‘overnight’ after vaccination.

  • Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams seemed to arguein a June 18 Facebook post that first responders to the shooting should have let the wounded individuals die.  In another post, Williams wrote that he is, “fed the f**k up with self-identified white’s daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslims, and sexual and racially oppressed people.”  He added that, “the time is now to confront these inhuman assholes and end this now.”
  • Tucker Carlson even had a fiery exchange with Democratic strategist Jim Devine over a tweet he sent out Monday with the hashtag “hunt Republican congressmen.”

Hunt them?  What the hell does that mean?  Hunt and shoot to kill?  These people have gone over the cliff and need to be arrested and tried for sedition and whatever other laws the DOJ can come up with.

The Face of the Democratic Party

This is the face of the democratic party and the radical leftists on which they rely. There is within the American Left an increasingly active element that is not only deeply left of center, and fundamentally opposed to free speech, but also openly violent.

This is the kind of talk that delegitimizes the representative republic process and weakens institutions. It smacks of treason. It is an effort to sow the seeds of civil war. It is unlike anything we’ve heard during a presidential campaign or tenure. It doesn’t just acknowledge the possibility of violence, it actually revels in it.

The Left Created James Hodgkinson

The Left gave us James Hodgkinson, Bernie Sanders supporter, and democratic socialist, who opened fire on Republicans.

The FBI, under democrat Andy McCabe, gave an utterly bizarre update on its investigation into an attempt to assassinate Republican members of Congress, including Rep. Steve Scalise who remains in the hospital with an upgraded condition to “fair” and said he faces a long recovery.

We know from other reporting that the list to kill was of six Republican Freedom Caucus members, including Rep. Mo Brooks, who was present at the practice.

So, what does the FBI decide this information means? Well, the takeaway of the briefing was characterized well by the Associated Press headline about it, which is total BS!  “FBI: Gunman who shot congressman had no target in mind.”

The AP reported the FBI

  • believes the gunman “had no concrete plan to inflict violence” against Republicans,
  • “had not yet clarified who, if anyone, he planned to target, or why,”
  • believes he may have just “happened upon” the baseball game the morning of June 14, and that the attack appeared “spontaneous,”
  • are unclear on the “context” of Hodgkinson’s note with six names of members of Congress,
  • does not believe that photographs of the baseball field or other sites “represented surveillance of intended targets,” and
  • “painted a picture of a down-on-his-luck man with few future prospects.”

In fact, USA Today went with “FBI offers portrait of troubled Alexandria shooter with ‘anger management problem’” for their headline, since that’s what the FBI emphasized in the briefing.

The FBI also said there was no “nexus to terrorism” in the attempted mass assassination of Republican leadership by a Democratic activist.

Excuse the hell outta me, this is outright BS and everyone knows it.  What the hell is the FBI peddling? And where is AG Sessions?  Time to dump the holdovers from OBAMA!  Truly, we need Rudy Giuliani to go after this mess.

 

Mueller Hires Clinton And Obama Supporters To Investigate Trump

CNN tried to conduct an online Trump hating poll, but it turned out to be a landslide for our President!  Here’s what they asked…  “Should Trump be investigated for obstruction of justice?”  (and they included a very unflattering pic of the President).  As of Monday morning, 2,698,604 votes had been cast.  The verdict: 70.2% said “no,” and just 29.8% said “yes.”  Yes, we still support our duly elected President, Donald J. Trump!

Where are the Republicans?

Our President is right, this is a witch hunt, and you know that whatever this independent counsel does, they will eventually end up with some kind of bogus inane charge.  So, where is the outrage from the Republicans who have a Republican President, and a totally Republican Congress, thanks to the campaign of Donald John Trump and the grassroots Americans who voted for him?  Where the hell is the outrage, and why aren’t they speaking up?

Trump’s greatest problem is the cowardice of congressional Republicans. Most of them are in the DC swamp Trump initially attacked, but they owe their majority status to the president.  Fools that they are, they will eventually have to realize that the anti-Trump campaign is a sewer that could devour them, and their only chance of retaining control of the Congress is to pull together and put the president’s promises and programs through, yet they’re silent.  Why?  Because most are establishment globalists just like their buddies across the aisle.

While President Trump is the public face of the attacks, the individual that is being targeted, we the people will ultimately pay the price for the America-haters’ success in thwarting what is, in fact, our agenda that was adopted by Mr. Trump.

The Real Russian Collusion

Remember the uranium deal brokered through government agencies by then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family, built, financed, and eventually sold off to the Russians, a company that would become known as Uranium One. The sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Even the NYT’s reported this story!

Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations to the Clinton Foundation totaling $2.35 million, and then another half million for a Moscow speech by Bill Clinton for a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

In August of 2009, Sec. of State Clinton requested FBI Director Mueller to be the one to personally conduct the transfer a 10-gram sample of HEU to Russian law enforcement sources during a secret “plane-side” meeting on a “tarmac” in the early fall of 2009.  A leaked classified cable confirmed Director Mueller’s September 21, flight to Moscow.  Why don’t we ask him about his collusion with Russia? [Link]

And say, Bernie Sanders might know more…he and his wife honeymooned in Russia.

Democrats Wouldn’t Allow This

We know good and danged well that this kind of behavior would never have been allowed with Obama, and it wasn’t allowed with the weekly scandals of President Clinton.  The scandals were shut down by the media and the Democratic party.  So where is the Republican chutzpah?  They are too damned silent.

Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, and I’m not at all in love with some of his choices, but I get down on my knees every single day and thank the Lord that we do not have the criminal, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in our White House again.

We need to help our President.  Just because you voted for him doesn’t mean you can go back to sleep or sit on the couch with no worries.  We are responsible for the government we get, and it’s up to each of us to fight for and help the good guys.

Who are the good guys?  Well, there sure aren’t very many of them, but the Conservative Caucus comes to mind, and so does our President, Steve Bannon, Jeffrey Sessions, and one great American who gave all, General Michael Flynn.

The enemies of freedom on the left, in the neo-con right, and in the main stream media all want to destroy the man who is not one of them.  He is not a globalist, not part of the establishment, and certainly not a politician.

It’s time to let him know via Twitter and through contacts listed at the end of this article, that he needs to go on the offensive and needs to expose what is happening to him and his administration, and just exactly who is doing it.  And he definitely needs to oust the Deep State holdovers from previous administrations just as Secretary Zinke did with the Department of Interior.

Robert Mueller Hires 13 Lawyers

Robert Mueller has hired 13 lawyers, and is planning to hire more, to help in the spurious investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election.  Talk about beating a dead horse. Now the left is pushing for obstruction of justice charges simply because of the president’s perhaps unwise expression of hope to Comey that General Flynn would not be prosecuted and then his firing of Comey. This does not qualify as obstruction of justice.

So why is there an FBI investigation when there is nothing at all to investigate? Because Democrats, unlike the Republicans, never give up and never give in.  They are so angry that they lost this election, they are now hellbent to destroy the rightfully elected President, and they’ve got their own insiders to do it.  This witch hunt is a huge career enhancement for all these lawyers.  And think about the bucks this is costing the taxpayers, and how all these lawyers will want to find “something” to hang their hats on.  I am totally and completely disgusted.

Mueller’s High-Powered Team

According to a report by CNN, those hired by Mueller are seasoned attorneys and experts, but as far as I’m concerned Mueller has proven he is incapable of being truly independent with his choices.

James Quarles worked at Mueller’s firm, Wilmer Hale.  Quarles has given nearly $33,000 to political campaigns over the years. He gave money to Democratic presidential candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In addition, Quarles gave more than $10,000 to help Democrats get elected to the House and another $10,000 on the Senate side, including money to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.  Quarles is a former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate investigation, which the left likes to use as a comparison to the Trump investigation.

Jeannie Rhee, is a white-collar crime specialist, who also worked at Mueller’s old firm, and worked under Eric Holder for two years.  She has given $16,000 to the Democrats since 2008, and she maxed out for Hillary in ’15 and ’16. She has already received attention for representing the Clinton Foundation in a racketeering lawsuit brought by a conservative advocacy group, and also represented Clinton herself in a lawsuit seeking access to her private emails. She was Hillary’s attorney and now she’s on the staff to go after Donald Trump.

Andrew Weissmann, is a seasoned prosecutor who has spent his career going after organized crime.  He was the general counsel who prosecuted the Enron case, which was overturned 8-0 in the US Supreme Court.  Weissman gave Obama $2,300 and $2,000 to the Democrat Party.

Aaron Zebley was the attorney for Justin Cooper, who was Clinton’s personal staff aide, and was one of two people who had access to Hillary’s ‘private’ email server and helped to set it up in the first place. He worked for the Clinton White House, then a personal aide to Bill Clinton and then worked for the Clinton Foundation.  He also worked at Wilmer Hale with Mueller. Zebley is a cybersecurity expert who spent decades in the FBI before joining a private practice.

Then there’s Michael Dreeben who has argued more than 100 cases in front of the Supreme Court and is an expert on criminal law. And the latest is Elizabeth Prelogar, former law clerk for liberal Supreme Court justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan, who has donated in the past to Hillary’s and Obama’s presidential campaigns.

The New York Times reported that Mueller was also looking into possible money laundering by Trump campaign staffers and associates, and that may be the reason he hired Lisa Page who has strong experience with money laundering and organized crime cases. [Link]

The fact that Mueller’s team can conduct such a broad probe, apparently looking into every possible angle of the Trump-Russia scandal, from possible financial crimes to outright collusion with the Kremlin, is a reflection of just how much legal firepower he has assembled.

Dick Morris observes, “So there are 330 million people in America and probably four or five million lawyers. And Mueller couldn’t find anybody except aides who worked for Bill Clinton, represented Hillary Clinton or worked for the Clinton Foundation to go after Donald Trump. This is not a special prosecutor’s staff. This is a hit squad.”

The President’s Lawyers

 

Trump’s team, by contrast, is led by Marc Kasowitz, a Wall Street lawyer with minimal experience in federal investigations. His top two partners so far, Michael Bowe and Jay Sekulow, are known more for their time on TV rather than their time in the courtroom, and don’t have anywhere near the background Mueller’s team has to take on this challenge.  Trump recently hired John Dowd, who represented McCain during the Keating Five scandal.

Prominent lawyers with investigative experience at four major law firms declined to represent the president, citing concerns about Kasowitz’s leadership and his influence over Trump. These lawyers include Brendan Sullivan of Williams & Connolly, a white-collar specialist who is consistently named as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the country, and Ted Olson of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, who was the solicitor general under George W. Bush from 2001 to 2004.  His wife was Barbara Olson, killed in 9/11.

Remember, VP Pence’s lawyer is Richard Cullen, the Godfather of one of Comey’s daughter’s.  Comey was a partner at Cullen’s firm.

The Investigation Has Started

Mueller’s team requested information from National Intelligence Director Dan Coates and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers. The investigators have interviewed former deputy director of NSA Richard Ledgett, Coates and Rogers, who testified that they were not pressurized by the Trump Administration officials.

The interviews are the first official functions of the special counsel’s new team of investigators.

Trump Supporters

Only one Republican can be credited for speaking out.  RNC national chairwoman Rona McDaniel is calling for an end to all of these blatant partisan exercises quickly, noting that Mueller has proven that he is incapable of being truly independent.

Other than the American people, there are very few media people who are supporting Trump.  Sean Hannity has called for Rosenstein and Mueller to recuse themselves or resign.  Lou Dobbs and Limbaugh both support our President and know the left is foaming at the mouth to destroy Trump.

Newt Gingrich said the investigation into collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russian interests is a partisan “witch hunt” by top Democrats.  “It’s a totally one-sided witch hunt spurred on by the liberal media… and shrill partisanship of Schumer and Pelosi,” he said.

We need Rudy Giuliani, where is he, and where the hell is the White House Offensive?

Comey, Rosenstein and Mueller have a different agenda.  They don’t share the beliefs of the President and are determined to undermine the will of the American people who elected him.  The swamp is not being drained, new areas are being developed and built, it’s expanding.

And it’s being done by the insiders of the Deep State.

Does McCain Owe a Mea Culpa to POWs and MIAs?

BY  FOR THE UNZ REVIEW

It’s the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” “It disqualifies him as a presidential candidate.” “This is the end of his run.” So crowed the political operatives looking to take down Mr. Trump, and by so doing, protect the political status quo and ease themselves into positions of greater power. The egos in the anchor’s chair and the pundits opposite chimed in: “He’ll make the more serious candidates look more serious,” predicted the next Michael Oakeshott and favorite imbecile, S. E. Cupp.

The Donald is in the dock for desecrating one of the political establishment’s most sacred cows: Sen. John McCain. Speaking at a forum in Iowa, the popular presidential hopeful said these sagacious things about the Republican from Arizona:

“[McCain’s] not a war hero. He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay?” (On the same occasion, Trump ventured that he was not particularly for the Vietnam War, a position that should endear him to principled libertarians.)

Not only does Donald Trump not owe Sen. McCain an apology; McCain likely owes mea culpa to Trump—and to the very many Vietnam veterans and their families whom he is alleged to have betrayed.

Yes, the heroic prisoner-of-war pedigree upon which McCain has established his career and credibility is probably a myth.

For our purposes, the story begins with Sydney Schanberg, back in the days before American journalism became a circle jerk of power brokers.

Mr. Schanberg is one of “America’s most eminent journalists.” “For his accounts of the fall of Cambodia to the Khmer Rouge in 1975,” Schanberg “was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting ‘at great risk.’ He is also the recipient of many other awards–including two George Polk awards, two Overseas Press Club awards and the Sigma Delta Chi prize for distinguished journalism.” Schanberg’s byline at The Nation magazine further reveals that:

The 1984 movie, The Killing Fields [watch it!], which won several Academy Awards, was based on his book ‘The Death and Life of Dith Pran’–a memoir of his experiences covering the war in Cambodia for the New York Times and of his relationship with his Cambodian colleague, Dith Pran.

Schanberg is also the author of a “remarkable 8,000-word exposé”: “McCain and the POW Cover-Up.” Here follow the opening paragraphs. They provide a précis of the forensic evidence collected by Schanberg against McCain as ally of Vietnam War POWs and men missing inaction:

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero people would logically imagine to be a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books. …

… The sum of the secrets McCain has sought to hide is not small. There exists a telling mass of official documents, radio intercepts, witness depositions, satellite photos of rescue symbols that pilots were trained to use, electronic messages from the ground containing the individual code numbers given to airmen, a rescue mission by a Special Forces unit that was aborted twice by Washington and even sworn testimony by two defense secretaries that “men were left behind.” This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number–probably hundreds–of the US prisoners held in Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

The Pentagon had been withholding significant information from POW families for years. What’s more, the Pentagon’s POW/MIA operation had been publicly shamed by internal whistleblowers and POW families for holding back documents as part of a policy of “debunking” POW intelligence even when the information was obviously credible. The pressure from the families and Vietnam veterans finally produced the creation, in late 1991, of a Senate “Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs.” The chair was John Kerry, but McCain, as a POW, was its most pivotal member. In the end, the committee became part of the debunking machine. …

The tale that has more twists than a serpent’s tail would be incomplete without mentioning another newsman, Ron Unz. First in his capacity as publisher of The American Conservative (July 1, 2010 cover story), and currently as editor-in-chief of The Unz Review—Mr. Unz has kept Schanberg’s voluminously sourced and criminally underexposed exposé alive in the alternative (intelligent) media.

Schanberg’s own journalistic and military man’s instincts were first piqued when “military officers [he] knew from that conflict began coming to [him] with maps and POW sightings and depositions by Vietnamese witnesses.”

Having served “in the Army in Germany during the Cold War and witnessing combat firsthand as a reporter in India and Indochina,” Schanberg had “great respect for those who fight for their country.” To my mind,” he explained, “we dishonored U.S. troops when our government failed to bring them home from Vietnam after the 591 others were released—and then claimed they didn’t exist. And politicians dishonor themselves when they pay lip service to the bravery and sacrifice of soldiers only to leave untold numbers behind, rationalizing to themselves that it’s merely one of the unfortunate costs of war.”

The man is clearly not an intemperate sort. Some would say that to knowingly leave servicemen behind in the service of political ambition is treason.

Despite his position “as one of the highest-ranking editors at the New York Times,” Schanberg was forced to unmask Hanoi John, on September 18, 2008, in The Nation magazine. He recounts: “I took the data to the appropriate desks [at the New York Times] and suggested it was material worth pursuing. There were no takers.”

In the war-hero department, McCain is manifestly more beloved by the bien pensant elites than his “Democratic counterpart,” Vietnam Medal of Honor recipient Democrat Bob Kerrey. While not a “single mention of McCain’s role in burying information about POWs” is to be found in the annals of the NYT; the paper of record—“a compliment [rightly] used these days as a cudgel”—took upon itself to expose (in its magazine) Bob Kerrey for having “ordered his men to massacre over a dozen innocent Vietnamese civilians—women, children, and infants,” in February of 1969.

McMussolini’s more recent record of devastation is an organic extension of his mythologized past:

“John McCain the politician,” wrote Trump in a USA Today editorial, “has made America less safe, sent our brave soldiers into wrong-headed foreign adventures, covered up for President Obama with the VA scandal and has spent most of his time in the Senate pushing amnesty. He would rather protect the Iraqi border than Arizona’s.”

Were Donald to dig deeper, he’d discover that McCain as champion of prisoners-of-war and men missing-in-action is as dubious as “John McCain the politician.”

    1. “Yes, the heroic prisoner-of-war pedigree upon which McCain has established his career and credibility is probably a myth.”

      With all due respect to Mr. Schanberg, who deserves our great respect for his journalistic accomplishments, I believe a distinction should be drawn between two separate issues: (1) the myth (as you correctly put it) of John McCain as “war hero” for getting shot down and serving 5-1/2 years as a POW and (2) McCain’s later efforts to suppress the search for POWs left behind.

      I believe Mr. Schanberg would be the first to admit that he was not the first to expose the first fact, the myth of McCain as a “war hero.” Most of that credit must go to the late, decorated war veteran Col. David Hackworth who posted a piece back in early 2000, when McCain first sought the Republican nomination for President, exposing the contradiction between McCain’s first person account in a 1973 U.S. News article and his Silver Star citation, which are contradictory. [ If I read Hackworth ‘s contention back in 2000, I must have read a second hand account in the NYTimes or WSJournal because my computer was only capable of using dial-up internet and, as a result, I was doing little searching on the internet. It was a year or two later when I bought a new, more powerful computer which allowed me to subscribe to broadband, and that permitted me to scroll the internet with much greater ease and to post on message boards, starting with Yahoo Finance. By 2008, when McCain was running for President, I rediscovered Hackworth’s 2000 piece and first read Schanberg’s 2008 article and read for the first time the reposted 1973 U.S. News account, all online.]

      Now, there might have been others who raised the same issue before Hackworth, but I am not aware of any. Long before my 2008 discoveries, I held the opinion that McCain’s “hero status” was exaggerated, but I had no hard facts on which to base my opinion. (Based upon his accusations, Trump appears to be in the same position as I before 2008. He has simply questioned whether merely serving as a POW entitles you to “war hero” status without something else, as in the case of Adm. James Stockdale.) Reading Hackworth’s 2000 account in 2008 and reading the 1973 U.S. News account in 2008 for the first time gave me plenty of facts to substantiate my earlier opinion. (Schanberg’s 2008 article contains several paragraphs raising questions about McCain’s “unheroic” behavior as a POW, which undercut completely McCain’s Silver Star citation, but I am not in a position to say whether he was revealing anything new at that time.)

      Mr. Schanberg’s revelation in 2008 was completely different. He revealed that, while pretending to be working on behalf of POW families, McCain was actually working behind the scenes to suppress and keep hidden the undeniable fact that we knowingly left behind POWs in North Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The only connection between fact #1 and fact #2 is that fact #2 offers an explanation or motivation for McCain’s deliberate attempt to suppress the release of information re retained POWs which was McCain’s fear that any such release would also result in release of records pertaining to McCain and would endanger his long cultivated status as a “war hero.”

      Don’t get me wrong. I think fact #1 and fact #2 are both important, but each can stand alone without the other to paint John McCain as a contemptible man and a complete phony.

    1. I had a neighbor from Vietnam. This person mentioned that their relatives said that they have seen these POW. They were described as “thin.” Perhaps being a compromised person is why McCain is such a sellout on every issue. I think Donald Trump should use his vast resources and find out the truth. It can be a rallying cry, “bring our boys home!”

    1. You forgot a few small items; not least Donald Trump being a social moron. That said, it’s nice to see McCain exposed for the fraud and liar he is, not to mention recalling his photo ops with known neo-nazis and al qaida:

      So, why does ‘the donald’ ‘duck’ these stellar McCain moments? Because he has no problem with McCain’s nazi allies in Ukraine considering Trumps hard-on for Putin?

      Or, in the case of the senile war-monger McCain’s dentu-creme smiles with al-Qaida affiliated kidnappers in Syria … where’s ‘the donald’ on that bs?

      But what’s most amazing is, it would require America’s most egotistical chauvinist to finally call serious attention to America’s most senile war-monger on his phony hero status –

      Will the real Trump please stand up? Oh, I think he just did:

    1. On the other hand, Sydney Schamberg is an apologist for the complete destruction of Vietnam by the US Government, and the McCain MIA cover up conspiracy retroactively justifies the complete destruction of Vietnam by the US Government.

      Perhaps Sydney Schamberg should be denounced as a WAR CRIMINAL!!!

      The US Military destroyed Cambadia. Not a word out of Schamberg about this.

      There is a direct line from WAR CRIMINAL Sydney Schamberg to WAR CRIMINAL Samantha Powers.

    1. RTW I like your equal opp bashing a great deal (LOL). You must agree though, that all souls are flawed, in one way or the other. The key probably, is to search for a small set of really important values the candidate must have. In that regard, the Donald very likely, fits the bill.

    1. This so far uncluttered thread may be the place to ask Ron Unz to follow up on his exposures of MSM inadequacy through his own work snd that of others by analysing the causes of the decline over the last few decades. And what might be done about it.

      I recently rang the principal environment reporter of a big city broadsheet-turned-tabloid with a story of self interested wrongdoing that would have been leapt upon and given a splash not many years ago. Nothing doing this time and the reason seems obvious. Newspapers have been shedding staff in large numbers and simply can’t or won’t afford serious journalism.

      The Wall Street Journal and Murdoch’s “Australian” broadsheet (the only one left in Australia) are not restricted by pennypinching and the same is probably true of the Guardian in the UK because it is supported by a charitable trust.

      Is there scope perhaps for crowd sourcing the funds to keep a subidised serious newspaper going?

    1. Trump’s remarks re McCain were nuanced enough and accurate enough to get noticed and reinforced by the MSM without being so complete re McCain’s preferred military associates as to be seen as “punching down, picking on an old and decrepit man, etc..”
      As nice a vivisection of a fraud as I have witnessed in many years. Well at least since Rudy Giuliani vivisected himself in the republican debates a few years back.
      Somehow that “misogynist” keeps getting the 10s of the world to schtup with. The non 10s at Jezebel suffer the envy pangs of the lonely cat ladies to be.

    1. Has any solder gotten more positive acclaim from being a prisoner of war then John McCain? He almost rode it to the pinnacle of power.

      What is most disconcerting is that he has a flawed character – he is not a good guy – as a young man he was a hot dog spoiled brat – an admiral’s privileged son. His grandfather and father where both very high ranking admirals. He quit the Navy only because they were not going to make him an admiral. The Navy knew him.

      So we got him – how screwed up is that? Because he supports Israel – we can thank the Zionist Jew controlled media for the none disclosure of his bad character. If you have power and support Israel, you can get away with almost anything. They will not report or make a story of your bad side or actions.

    1. “I believe Mr. Schanberg would be the first to admit that he was not the first to expose the first fact, the myth of McCain as a “war hero.” Most of that credit must go to the late, decorated war veteran Col. David Hackworth who posted a piece back in early 2000. . . .”

      Apparently, Col. Hackworth was not the first to question McCain’s “hero status.” I came across a lengthy article in the Phoenix New Times dated March 25, 1999, which predates Col. Hackworth’s 2000 piece by nearly a year.

      http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/is-john-mccain-a-war-hero-6421192

      It must be kept in mind that McCain’s first person account in U.S. News appeared back in 1973, just as the country was becoming consumed by the Watergate scandal. I didn’t get around to reading McCain’s account until 2008 (25 years later), but apparently others, especially Vietnam veterans and families of Vietnam POWs, read the article with great interest and concluded that McCain’s account didn’t add up to hero status. There must have been an underground railroad of sorts that must of us were unaware of, exchanging information among themselves dealing with McCain’s POW experience, much like the samzidats in the Soviet Union before its collapse. Also keep in mind that then the internet had not exploded as a means of communication, as it would do starting in the early 2000′s. Most of this remained under most people’s radar until the 2000 Presidential contest loomed and McCain was a contender. That would explain the timing of the 1999 Phoenix New Times piece. I know there are numerous “New Times” alternative papers (now mostly online) around the country. We have a couple in South Florida where I live, and I have often read their pieces, which cover subjects of local or regional interest not covered in depth by the MSM newspapers. I don’t know how much coverage the Phoenix New Times article received beyond Phoenix and Arizona, but I am certain it was brought to Col. Hackworth’s attention. Col. Hackworth occupied a much different place than the New Times. Because of his reputation, he commanded a national platform, and that was the importance of his 2000 piece on McCain: not that he was the first to address the issue but that he brought the matter out from the shadows and to the attention of a national audience about to choose a new President. (His piece also had the great advantage of being more concise and much better written, boiling the case against McCain’s “hero status” down to its essence.)

    1. “What is most disconcerting is that he has a flawed character – he is not a good guy – as a young man he was a hot dog spoiled brat – an admiral’s privileged son. His grandfather and father where both very high ranking admirals. He quit the Navy only because they were not going to make him an admiral. The Navy knew him.”

      Art, in the Phoenix New Times piece I posted above, there is a part which confirms how spoiled and even delusional McCane is. Keep in mind that McCain graduated fifth from the bottom of his 800+ member class at the Naval Academy, and, despite that, he received a coveted posting flying planes for the Navy, an honor usually reserved for those graduating much higher than McCain, and, during his career in the Navy, he lost five planes (including the one shot down over North Vietnam), mostly due to his own carelessness. (I just wonder how many other Navy officers were allowed to continue flying after losing four planes.)

      While being held as a POW, McCain met a number of visitors, including the following:

      “McCain was asked to meet with a “visitor” who turned out to be Dr. Fernando Barral, a Spanish psychiatrist living in Cuba. The interview took place at the Committee for Foreign Cultural Relations in Hanoi. Barral describes the setting, which included a spread of oranges, cakes, coffee and cigarettes. An account of Barral’s interview with McCain was published in the Cuban periodical Granma on January 24, 1970.

      Barral and McCain talked about a variety of subjects, according to Granma. McCain praised his treatment by the North Vietnamese, spoke of his wife and of his family: “One of my forebears was a colonel in Washington’s independent forces. Another was a general in the war of secession. Thus it was natural for me to follow a military career. Of course my father was not always an admiral; during World War II he was commander of a submarine. He [referring to his father] has been in the navy since 1927 and has been an admiral since 1965. He holds the highest rank in the navy. If I had not been downed, I would have become an admiral at an earlier age than my father.” ”

      I find it astounding that someone with his mediocre record as a student and a pilot could even dream he was going to become an admiral. Talk about a sense of entitlement.

    1. Ten years ago I read a different account of the USS Forrestal incident. I do not know if it is true or not.

      McCain was in line to take off from the Forrestal with other planes behind him. There is something you can do to the engines that cause them to backfire, scarring the guy behind you. The story is that McCain did that and as a result the guy behind him inadvertently dropped a bomb on the carrier deck. Seventy people died as a result. The story also said, that night McCain was transferred to another ship because his crew members wanted to kill him.

    1. I think Donald Trump should use his vast resources and find out the truth.

      Not if he is serious about running for President. There is no way to score points on this. There are already too many people that don’t like Trump over this, don’t add to the list. Attack McCain on the fact that he is so in love with his “maverick” persona that he will tell any lie to stay in power like when he told people in Arizona that he “would build the damn fence already” and immediately became an amnesty monger when he was sworn in.

    1. I really am in no position to say anything about the Forrestal incident, but your story is very disturbing if true. Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt on the Forrestal incident, the other three plane incidents are disturbing enough to make you wonder about this guy’s judgment, especially the incident in Spain where it seems to be indisputable that he was attempting a stunt of flying under the electrical power lines in order to show off and lacked the flying ability to pull it off. Had he pulled it off and you were aware of the incident, you would still have to question his judgment for even daring such a maneuver. Had his father not been such a high ranking admiral, I am sure he would have been kicked out of the Navy. Long before I became aware of his dreadful flying record, I had serious reservations about his foreign policy record, especially after he became a Senator, and his record on certain domestic issues.

    2. Slightly off topic, but – let’s suppose there is for example, American POWs still being held in Vietnam – (I’m not saying there isn’t but for the sake of my question) These guys would be fairly old now. Of what use would they be to the Vietnamese? What strategic interest (if any?) does the current Vietnamese government have by still holding them prisoner? Why not just release them? I don’t know for sure, but I remember hearing years ago that French prisoners of year were later released by the Vietnamese, if they wanted to, they were permitted to stay in Vietnam and even marry…don’t know the accuracy of this, what do others think?

    1. I believe I read somewhere (earlier in this thread or another thread) that the Vietnamese held on to those POWs as security for the promised U.S. “reparations.” Those Nixon and Kissinger promises met a cold reception in Congress, and, once they realized no reparations would be forthcoming, the Vietnamese killed the remaining POWs since there was nothing to trade them for.

      Another thought that suddenly occurred to me involved McCain’s admissions in U.S. News back in 1973, two months after being released as a POW, that he offered his captors military intelligence in order to get needed hospital care. (Something I might have done myself under the circumstances. I am not faulting McCain for his action, even though it was in violation of the military code at the time, but his elevation to “hero status” following his release.) Admissions against interest are presumed to be honest. I just found it odd that he would be so forthcoming in an interview in a publication with a fairly wide circulation. I don’t know why the light bulb didn’t go off sooner, but it suddenly occurred to me that the reason he could be so forthcoming with U.S. News is that his interview tracked with what he had already told the Navy in his debriefing. His story initially was the same both to the Navy and U.S. News. So someone must have made the subsequent decision to alter the story line and invent the torture for the first two months of his captivity to justify the Silver Star, which is contrary to his account in U.S. News that he was in the hospital at the time being treated for his injuries, without any mention of torture.

    1. Camile Paglia has a three-part interview over at Salon this week and has a lot of interesting things to say. You may not agree with her politics, but she is clearly a very intelligent person with a great knowledge of world history.

      This is a relevant segment from Part 2 of the interview pertaining to The Donald and his controversial opinion of McCain:

      “So far this year, I’m happy with what Trump has done, because he’s totally blown up the media! All of a sudden, “BOOM!” That lack of caution and shooting from the hip. He’s not a president, of course. He’s not remotely a president. He has no political skills of any kind. He’s simply an American citizen who is creating his own bully pulpit. He speaks in the great populist way, in the slangy vernacular. He takes hits like a comedian–and to me he’s more of a comedian than Jon Stewart is! Like claiming John McCain isn’t a war hero, because his kind of war hero doesn’t get captured–that’s hilarious! That’s like something crass that Lenny Bruce might have said! It’s so startling and entertaining.” [Note: I wish she had added “and true.”]

      http://www.salon.com/2015/07/29/camille_paglia_takes_on_jon_stewart_trump_sanders_liberals_think_of_themselves_as_very_open_minded_but_that%e2%80%99s_simply_not_true/

      She’s a liberal who criticizes liberals for their closed-mindedness, a proclaimed atheist who expresses respect for religion, a feminist who shows great understanding and respect for men. A very interesting woman imho who feels free to tell it like it is as she sees it.

      I should have added the word “probably” before “tracked” to make it clear that I am speculating about what he told the Navy. We are all forced to speculate since that debriefing report has not been made public and McCain has done his best to suppress the release of that document and most other relevant documents pertaining to his years as a POW. Sort of like Tom Brady junking his cellphone to destroy evidence of his emails pertaining to “Deflategate.” I believe some prominent Republican back in the 70′s suggested that Nixon should have had a bonfire on the White House lawn to destroy his collection of secret Oval Office recordings. Had he done so, he might have survived in office because it was the release of those recordings which guaranteed his exit.

Overwhelming Response to Animal Court Idea

by Rev. Austin Miles

The heavy response to my current story about the cat killer was instant. The story regarded a maniac who cruelly killed 18 cats for the sick “thrill” of killing them.  These were more than cats. These gentle animals were beloved PETS, totally loved by their owners. The mental case who killed them was identified, arrested, put on trial, and was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his dastardly deeds.

In that story, which you can see at this link:  http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/miles/170730, it was suggested that it is time to have a specialized court  (which are in existence for particular types of cases)– this one to deal with animal abuse cases.  From the first publication as it went on the wire, the responses were immediate.  Responses came to my in-box, and to the papers that carried the story. All were in favor of establishing animal courts which will also make the public more aware of all creatures.

In the initial story I did not include who to contact to make this happen because at that moment I did not know. Then I received an email from a faithful reader, Richard Firth from the State of Virginia, who helped me with another story by giving me the inside address of a D.C. Official I needed to contact. I heard from him immediately with the information to make this legislation happen. Here is his note: For his protection we did not include Mr. Firth’s exact city of residence or his home address or email contact.

From: Richard Firth
To: Austin Miles <chaplainmiles@aol.com>
Sent: Mon, Jul 31, 2017 7:31 am
Subject: Your Article about Special Courts set up to Deal with animal abuse cases

Dear Rev Austin:

I am sorry to be late in getting around to respond to your caring article about animals and the reason is you didn’t tell who to contact in regards to the setting up of such courts.  I did check it out with my State Attorney’s General office and the reply which I thought it would be is to contact your state legislators so they can introduce such legislation in your state.

I also talked with the Assistant Attorney General, a beautiful lady, Michelle Welch. who loves animals and loves to prosecute those who abuse animals and she said she would like a copy of your article which I just sent her which would help her in the matter should legal problems arise and could advise us how her office would be handling those matters.  So I will start contacting my state legislators to introduce such legislation and send you a copy.

I have already posted your article on line and plan to submit a few more and send you copies as well,  My first posting failed to include who to contact which I will also address.

Pray for 118 beagles our local VA administration wants to kill for medical research.  That’s another area where millions of animals are killed and some in the most ruthless way possible, plus many of these experiments are not necessary and a WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY. WhiteCoatWasteProject is leading the issue here at our VA hospital and Congressmen in DC voted unanimously voted in favor of a bill cutting off money for most of the experiments.  It now goes to the U. S. Senate for passage.

Maybe you could do a series of the horrible fate that awaits many animals, just as gruesome as any other method of killing animals.

God bless your work for ALL his creatures, including mankind.

Sincerely
Richard W. Firth

Of course I am upset that they plan to use 118 beagles for medical research. We must all write our senators to NOT grant the funding for this ‘project.’ And here is another letter Mr. Firth wrote urging his representatives to back the legislation to establish these animal courts. The letter is similar to other officials he wrote about this issue. You can do the same.

Senator Ryan McDougle

State Capitol

Richmond, VA

Dear Senator McDougle

Could you please introduce the legislation this writer talks about in his article concerning cruelty to animals, excerpts from which now follow:

“A mental case living in San Jose, Robert Farmer, was just sentenced to 16 years in jail for incredible cruelty to cats, having tortured and dismembered 21 cats he had abducted on the streets including the yards of the homes they lived in. Eighteen of the 21 abducted cats died from their horrific injuries at the hands of Farmer who took perverted pleasure in hearing the animals screaming in agony” and this preacher who despises the mistreatment of animals See his article and he wants something done about such cases by clicking this link:

What he wants done to correct the situation is to set up special courts to deal with such abuses. Here are his words about wanting to establish such courts.

 We can set up specialized courts to handle any animal abuse cases. They would handle other cases as well but for any animal abuse case, this would be the court to handle it. We must recognize animals as beings created by God who have the same feelings we have….feelings of pain, anxiety, fear, love, grief and joy, just as we do. Next time you hit your thumb with a hammer, remember that an animal would feel the same level of pain.

“These courts would be set up in various sections of the country. Readers, will you support this by simply writing backup letters agreeing that such courts would benefit society? Most serial killers such as Jeffrey Dahmer were cruel to animals as they were growing up. Dahmer even killed and ATE his human victims.”

Please do everything necessary to secure passage of such legislation as too many animal abuse cases lead to abuse on humans and when not prosecuted the perpetrator feels he or she is above the law and can hurt any animal or human he or she chooses to harm.

Sincerely,

Richard W. Firth

Readers, now it is time to do your part. It was Mahatma Gandhi who said, “You can always judge a nation by the way it treats it[s animals.” Animals are God’s creation and it is our profound duty to treat them kindly, humanely and to protect them. Otherwise you will face God’s judgement. You never want to go there. NEVER cause or tolerate mistreatment to ANY of God’s living creatures.
