Alex Newman: California Goes Full Orwell: “Cradle-to-Career” Data Scheme 

by Alex Newman

Blazing ahead on the highway to a full-blown Orwellian society, California just approved a new comprehensive “education” data regime that is being touted by Governor Gavin Newsom and lawmakers as a “Cradle-to-Career Data System.”

While details are still being worked out, it is clear that this massive data-gathering machine is intended to vacuum up every sort of information imaginable on California children. The intrusive surveillance and tracking will begin at birth and extends through work life. Health data will be included, too.

The scheme was strongly supported by Governor Newsom. In fact, on the very first page of his proposed budget for the year, the radical left-wing politician demanded $10 million to start building the enormous data regime.

The purpose of it all, Newsom said, is “to better track student outcomes and increase the alignment of our educational system to the state’s workforce needs.” In short, government central planning is the admitted goal — though certainly not the only one.

The “Cradle-to-Career Data System Act” was approved overwhelmingly as part of a broader “education” bill. In the Senate, SB 75 was approved by a massive landslide of 31 in favor versus 7 against. In the Assembly, the vote was 62 to 14 in favor.

A “workgroup” under the supervision of the executive branch will bring together “social justice” groups, unions, Big Tech bosses, Big Business, and other special interests to determine what data to collect and what exactly to do with it. More details on the scheme are expected by July of next year.

For now, the legislation calls for integrating K-12 data with higher education data. After that, the next phase will include workforce data, “early education” data, preschool data, health data, and much more. It will all be linked together in the databases, which will be shared with the feds and special interests. Even private institutions are expected to provide data for Big Brother’s new scheme.

Would-be profiteers and totalitarians of all varieties celebrated the legislation, disgorging platitudes on the supposed wonders it will do for “education” and the “children.” Critics, though, sounded the alarm.

“Big data and technological progress are enabling leftist government officials to take totalitarianism socialism to unforeseen heights,” explained popular liberty-minded commentator Shane Trejo in a piece about the new data-gathering scheme in California. “George Orwell must be spinning in his grave.”

Meanwhile, as The Newman Report has documented, more than half of California children cannot read, and over 25 percent are “gender non-conforming.” Obviously, education is not the goal here.

The Takeaway

As long as parents continue allowing the government to brainwash and data-rape their children in government schools, the abuse will continue to get more extreme. The government has no business gathering this private data from children and families. It is past time for parents to “just say no!”

Jesse Lee Peterson: KAMALA HARRIS IS NO ROSA PARKS

Jesse Lee Peterson blasts socialist candidate pushing Americans to back of the bus

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was touted as the winner of the second Democratic debate, in part, because she went after Joe Biden accusing him of opposing bussing to integrate public schools and of coddling segregationists. Biden said Harris misrepresented his record.

Biden has been criticized by some for recent comments he made about his ability to get along with Democratic Sens. James O. Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia, both known segregationists. Biden later spoke at Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition in Chicago and defended his record on civil-rights, mostly by talking up former president Barack Obama. He cited that the Obama Department of Justice investigated discrimination by police in places like Ferguson, Missouri.

The Obama-Biden record on civil-rights is awful! For eight years, Joe Biden was part of the most anti-white, anti-police administration in U.S. history. Obama-Biden intentionally divided this country along racial lines with false claims of “racism” and “police brutality” in order to keep blacks on the Democratic plantation. They undermined trust in the judicial system. They politicized and tied the hands of law enforcement while allowing dangerous street thugs to attack cops with impunity.

Kamala Harris played the race card and scored political points. Harris’s campaign reportedly raised $2 million in the 24 hours after the debate. But like Obama and Biden, Harris is a far-left Democrat who promotes racial division and class warfare.

Harris was born in Oakland, California in 1964 to a Jamaican father and Indian mother. Her parents divorced when she was seven and Harris’ mother moved with the children to Montreal, Québec, Canada, where Harris remained until she finished high school. Like Obama, Kamala has no connection to black America’s struggle for civil rights. Just because Harris was bussed to a white school in Berkeley for the sake of integration, it doesn’t make her the modern-day Rosa Parks or a Freedom Rider! Harris is playing the race card to get black votes.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, Harris’s first major political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend and Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, Willie Brown (three decades her senior) to a cushy California medical board that paid $70,000 per year! Today, she’s married a successful Jewish attorney.

Kamala Harris will say anything to get votes. A recent example of Harris’s pandering is her support for the legalization of marijuana, which she opposed as California’s attorney general. When questioned about her flip-flop, Harris cited her Jamaican heritage: “Half my family is from Jamaica, are you kidding me?” She said she supports legalization because smoking pot “gives a lot of people joy, and we need more joy.”

Her father, Donald Harris, took issue with his daughter’s use of the drug stereotype as she runs for president.

“My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,” he said in a statement to Jamaica Global.

Harris’s father has also reportedly written about their family ancestry and said that one of his grandmothers was related to a plantation and slave owner while the other had unknown ancestry.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Kamala Harris and Democrats are more committed to taking care of illegals than they are Americans. They are not campaigning to appeal to all of America; instead, they’re trying to pander to illegal aliens, radical LGBT groups and the pro-abortion crowd.

Democrats want to give illegals everything, but they refuse to help American citizens. They promised healthcare for all (including illegal aliens) without offering a way to pay for it. When asked if they’re going to do anything to close the southern border, not a single person raised their hand; but they want to add another 30 million illegals to rely on the government. There are Americans who can’t afford to pay for healthcare as a result of Obamacare. We need to look out for the American people first!

Democrat California lawmakers are working on a proposal to let young illegal immigrants enroll in the state’s Medicaid program (Medi-Cal). Eligible people up to the age of 26 would be covered, regardless of their immigration status. The plan could cost the state as much as $98 million per year! New York State passed a bill that allows illegal aliens to get driver’s licenses. Democrats want to give illegals the right to vote, and issuing licenses is one way to do it.

Kamala Harris is for socialism. She wants free college for all, including illegal aliens! Harris wants to raise taxes on the middle class. She is staunchly pro-abortion. She is anti-Second Amendment and supported a bill ending cash bail for criminals.

Kamala Harris and the Democrats don’t care about black people. Blacks have fared much better under President Trump than any other president in recent history. Democrats haven’t done anything to help improve the inner cities – they’ve made things worse. If Kamala Harris and Democrats have their way, they will bankrupt the country with handouts to illegals and push blacks to the back of the bus.

Alex Newman: California School Bans MAGA Hats, Student Fights Back

by Alex Newman

More than half of California’s children cannot read at even a proficient level, and more than a fourth of the state’s students are now “gender non-conforming.” Considering the crisis engulfing the state’s so-called “education system,” one would think that school officials would be scrambling for solutions.

But one would be wrong.

Instead, policymakers for at least one school district in California are working to prohibit students from wearing “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats. Yes, seriously.

While the Clovis Unified School District dress code does not specifically prohibit hats or shirts with political messages, officials decided that pro-Trump gear would not be allowed. At least one student has been told that she cannot wear a MAGA hat or any other pro-Trump clothing.

“Bottom line for us is the dress code is for kids to feel safe at school and free of distractions so they can focus on learning,” district spokesman Kelly Avants was quoted as saying in local media reports. “Here we are closer to shouting fire in a crowded theater.”

But for Clovis North High School senior Maddie Mueller, a member of “Valley Patriots” and a strong Trump supporter who was told not to wear a MAGA hat, that policy is outrageous.

“How does being a patriot in trying to show pride in your country, how is that inappropriate?” she asked. “I don’t care if I offend anybody I’m just showing support for the President and what I believe…. To my knowledge Trump is not a logo it’s a last name, it’s just our President, you can’t claim the President is a logo, sports team or affiliated with any gang.”

This is not the first time government schools in California have discriminated against students for choosing to wear clothing. As far back as 2010, school officials at Live Oak School ordered students not to wear shirts with American flags. And incredibly, the courts upheld the ban on the U.S. flag — in America!

Meanwhile, innocent children at government schools have been forced on multiple occasions to sing praises to former President Barack Hussein Obama and his agenda to “change” America. Incredibly, teachers even filmed the young victims of their dictatorship-style political indoctrination.

The Takeaway!

This blatant discrimination against conservative students and Trump supporters is only the tip of the iceberg. The government’s indoctrination system has become openly hostile to any ideas or values that contradict its own.

Considering the fact that over 85 percent of American children are captive in these institutions for five days a week, it is clear that freedom is in mortal danger. Americans must not allow this to stand.

Jesse Lee Peterson: LET’S DECLARE MAXINE WATERS AND DEMOCRATS CRAZY

Jesse Lee Peterson slams politicos more concerned about welfare of illegal aliens

by Jesse Lee Peterson

MoveOn.org and other left-wing agitators have planned demonstrations across the U.S. for Presidents Day in response to Donald Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency for border wall funding.

“Donald Trump has declared a #FakeNationalEmergency – an illegal power grab from an unhinged man to push his racist, dangerous policies,” MoveOn.org states on its site.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), “The Wicked Witch of The West” with the low IQ, went on MSNBC and called on Americans to protest across the country to send President Trump a message that his declaration of a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border is “fake.”

As President Trump predicted, Democrats have become unhinged by his move to fund the border wall. In addition to their protests, Democrats have filed lawsuits to slow or block attempt to allocate funds towards a border wall by challenging the president’s declaration of an emergency.

Trump did everything possible to work with Democrats before declaring an emergency. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., refused to negotiate in good faith, and Democrats left the president no choice.

The Constitution gives Congress sole authority for appropriating funds when it passes budgets. But Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1976, giving the president vast powers in the event of a national emergency. The declaration will allow the president to divert billions of dollars of federal money towards the wall. The White House said it has identified up to $8.1 billion, including over $6 billion from the Pentagon, that will be available to fund the border wall now that the emergency is declared.

Democratic Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama – along with Republican Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush – have declared national emergencies prior to Trump’s declaration.

Democrats are insane, evil or both. No rational person or group would knowingly encourage the invasion of their homeland. Maxine Waters and Democrats opposed to the border wall are playing politics with the lives of the American people, and they pose a serious threat to our national security.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Waters called the president’s national emergency declaration “fake.” The only thing fake is her concern for the black Americans who live in her district. Maxine Waters has been in Congress for 28 years. Most of her district is crime-ridden, impoverished and overrun by illegal aliens. Waters doesn’t live in the district she represents, so she doesn’t understand the plight of her constituents. She lives in a multi-million-dollar mansion in a very affluent part of Los Angeles.

Waters’ 43rd Congressional District consists of 697,985 residents. It ranks 37th out of 436 other congressional districts in the U.S. as to the number of foreign-born residents; as of 2012, that number stood at 31.6 percent of a population. Of those, 36.6 percent were categorized as white and 23.9 percent were categorized as black. Of these, 46.9 percent were counted as Hispanic or Latino. Therefore, those counted as white – not Hispanic or Latino – represented 14.4 percent of the district. No wonder she’s advocating for illegal aliens!

The illegal alien population in California is estimated at 3 million. Illegal aliens create an enormous financial burden on Californian residents. The annual expenditure of state and local tax dollars on services for illegal aliens is $25.3 billion. Nearly half of those expenditures ($12.3 billion) result from the costs of K-12 education for the children of illegal aliens. According to the Federation For American Immigration Reform (FAIR)), billions more are spent on public assistance services, administration of justice functions, and general governmental services for illegals.

According to a Pew Research Center study, there were 12.0 million immigrants from Mexico living in the U.S. in 2016 (just from Mexico alone!).

In addition to the financial burden, the drugs and crime flooding across the southern border is wreaking havoc on American towns and cities. Every day, 130 Americans die due to opioid overdoses. Ninety percent of the heroin that reaches America comes through Mexico. Almost 25 percent of federal inmates are illegal aliens.

Maxine Waters and Democrats are more concerned about the welfare of illegal aliens than they are about American citizens. The Democrats’ support for open borders and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is threatening our national security and allowing dangerous criminals and drugs to flood across the border.

Border security is the most important issue facing our nation. The mass invasion by illegal aliens and the crime and drugs that follow hurts all Americans. It’s especially devastating to low-income Americans who are forced to compete for jobs, education and healthcare services with illegal aliens. Inner city blacks and those living in border states are hurt first and foremost.

Maxine Waters and the Democrats are out of touch with the American people. Waters doesn’t care about blacks – she only cares about power. The Wicked Witch of The West must go!

Tom DeWeese: The Anti-Trump Riots are a Smoke Screen The Real Goal – Eliminate the Electoral College

by Tom DeWeese

Many seem bewildered by the anti-Trump riots and demonstrations that have covered the nation since the 2016 election. And many keep trying to find a reasonable response. Give it up. You can’t reason with them with words.

Here is my take. They know full well that they aren’t going to overturn the election. These privately funded forces are being used to create pressure to destroy the Electoral College so they won’t have to deal with it next election. This is how the Left operates. Make a big deal over here to force the hidden agenda over there. The plan is to make enough trouble that Congress will move to abolish the EC to get some peace.

For clues on who is behind this effort one only has to watch to see which member of Congress would propose such action. The answer, of course, was California Senator Barbara Boxer. It only took a week after the election for her to come to the rescue of the broken and distraught Left.

The danger is real and gaining ground. But it didn’t start with the 2016 election result. A campaign to eliminate the Electoral College and “let the people elect the president,” has been gaining steam for several years. A group called “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact,” http://www.nationalpopularvote.com/ started in 2006, has won commitments from eleven states to award their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote. These include Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, Massachusetts, California, New York, Hawaii, the District of Columbia and Connecticut. These states control 172 electoral votes. They only need states representing 98 more electoral votes to join and the Electoral College will be a thing of the past. Meanwhile, such legislation is under consideration in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arizona, to name a few.

When a state passes legislation to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, it pledges that all of that state’s electoral votes will be given to whichever presidential candidate wins the popular vote nationwide. These bills will take effect only when states with a majority of the electoral votes have passed similar legislation. States with electoral votes totaling 270 of the 538 electoral votes would have to pass NPV bills before the compact kicks in and any state’s bill could take effect.

As usual, it’s easy to get people to join this cause – yet another sound bite based on emotion rather than knowledge or logic. “Let the people decide.” “It’s the American way.” “It’s Democracy at work.” Yep, that’s why America was never set up as a democracy. Here’s another sound bite for you – “Democracy is a lynch mob.” Here’s another one – “Democracy is three wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch.” Majority rule violates the rights of minorities. It’s not a good thing.  Get the picture?

The United States was created by the individual sovereign states. They were already free and independent governments on their own. As they came together to create a central government they feared it would grow too strong and overpower the states, making them subjugated to the central government. So, to prevent that, the states created the Electoral College to make the election of the President a STATE election.

Throughout history, certain factions have challenged the legality of the Electoral College. Opponents point out that our President is actually elected by 538 virtually unknown people who are members of 51 small delegations in fifty States and the District of Columbia. Moreover, in most states, the electors are not even bound to vote for the candidate that won the popular vote. In fact, many Constitutional scholars believe that’s just what the founders intended, 538 independent thinkers, bound to no one. There is reason and logic behind the idea.

Purchase Tom’s latest book “Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals”.

The Founding Fathers, particularly those from small States, were very concerned that they would be smothered by the larger states. Under the representative republic (not a democracy) established by the founders, the United States is made up of fifty sovereign States. Under the Constitution, except for limited powers specifically defined for the central government, power for the rule of law is intended to reside in the States.

To deal with the problem, the founders decided on a compromise that would establish two chambers for the Congress; the House of Representatives, whose size would be dictated by the population in each state and the Senate in which every state would get two representatives, regardless of its size or population. You see, in the beginning, the states appointed Senators to be their representatives in Congress. But, like these so-called scholars of today who want to wreck the Electoral College, previous “experts” came up with the idea that Senators should be elected by the people – “It’s only fair,” went the mantra! The result is an imperial Senate that answers to no one but their own elite club members. That’s what happens when you mess with the real genius of the Constitution.

The same problem arose in deciding how to select a President, the one nationally-elected official. Here again, there was the fear that election by popular vote would overwhelm the will of smaller States. Again, a compromise was reached to address the issue in a fair and equitable manner in order to maintain the power of the states. Each state was assigned a number of presidential electoral votes equal to its representation in the House and the Senate. In each state, the electors would vote for a President and Vice President. The candidate receiving the largest number of electoral votes would be elected.

Under the plan, the connection to the popular vote was the selection of state electors. The popular vote was to be used to select individuals trusted by the people to select the President. Each presidential candidate has a slate of electors committed to them. As the people vote for a candidate, they are actually electing his/her slate of electors. Again, the selection of electors goes directly to local control of the process. Under the Constitution, even the smallest state was assured at least three votes in the process. To provide a further check to protect the smaller states, in the event no candidate won a majority of the electoral vote, the names of the top five would go to the House of Representatives, where each state delegation would cast one vote for one of the candidates. In this process each state, again, is equal.

To understand the Electoral College one must realize that the Founders considered the states as the dominant power in the nation. Election of the office of President was a bit like the selection of the Chairman of the Board, with the states serving as the board of directors for the nation. The great mistake Electoral College opponents make is to believe the President was supposed to be elected by the people. It was never the plan.

There are fundamental and often regional differences in how Americans view the role of government and the leaders they elect to run it. Little wonder those who seek to strengthen the power of the central government prefer that elections be decided by the popular vote. It’s a great sound bite- but the results will not give “the people” the “fair” result they desire.

Such a move will eliminate the power of individual states in favor of elections decided by the population of large, politically liberal cities. I’ve actually heard it said by residents of California, San Francisco, in particular, “why do we even let people in Ohio and Iowa vote?” Such elitism is behind the “National Popular Vote” movement which apparently believes that only the East and West Coasts count. The rest is just flyover country.

Keep these facts in mind as we watch the enforcement of Sustainable Development policies that lead to Smart Growth cities. The stated plans of such ideas are that most people will eventually be ‘persuaded” to leave the rural areas and migrate to the cities. In addition, we now are witnessing the invasion of illegal immigrants who normally land in such communities and swell their size.

The “feel good” propaganda of the National Popular Vote movement insists that a popular vote would not change the face of the nation. However, by design or not, the fact is their scheme plays right into the hands of the Sustainablists who openly seek top-down control through the establishment of megacities. By forcing the massive majority of citizens into such areas, a majority vote in just a few will drown any other area in the nation.

In such a planned agenda for the 21st Century, individuals living in the majority of the nation’s territory will quickly learn how little their “popular vote” counts if the Electoral College is abandoned by the “National Popular Vote” scheme. Those smaller states (and therefore their votes) may have no impact on the election of the President, just as our founders feared. Control by a few over the many can only be defined as tyranny.

The abolishment of the Electoral College would, in fact, establish an election tyranny giving control of the government to the massive population centers of the nation’s Northeastern sector, along with the area around Los Angeles. If these sections of the nation were to control the election of our nation’s leaders, the voice of the ranchers and farmers of the Mid and Far West would be lost, along with the values and virtues of the South. It would also mean the end of the Tenth Amendment and state sovereignty.

Not happy to even let the states decide if they want to support the idea of the National Popular vote or not, the hard Left has manufactured the unrest in the streets to pressure a fast solution. In 2016 Senator Boxer answered the call with legislation to end the Electoral College. Such demands to end it masquerade as the answer to the people’s unrest. If achieved the end, the result will have nothing to do with Donald Trump. He is just the convenient excuse.

Allow that to happen now and the great silent majority of middle America in this nation will never again have a fair say in who is elected our president. And that is the true goal of today’s unrest.

Alex Newman: Democrats Sound Alarm as Far-left Fringe Takes Over Party

Democrats Sound Alarm as Far-left Fringe Takes Over Party –  “On the far-left, though, there seems to be little coherence to the agenda…  “

by Alex Newman

The Democrat Party is cracking up, but there are efforts underway to bring it back from the brink. As socialist-ruled nations across the Americas implode into violence and mass starvation, the fringe left-wing allies and supporters of those murderous strongmen in America are said to be on the verge of taking over the Democratic Party. Democratic Bernie Sanders (shown) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are both offered as examples of the “future” of the party. But after tolerating, encouraging, and flirting with the far-left fringe for years, supposedly more moderate Democrats anxious about an electoral pummeling are finally starting to speak out as a quasi-civil war breaks out in the party.

But with self-described liberals making up less than half the party and just one fourth of the electorate, the ultra-liberal Democrat Party may be too far gone to be salvaged. Consider that Communist Party USA leaders openly brag about how they “utilize” the Democrat Party to advance their totalitarian agenda in America. And consider, too, that a number of known communists and socialists were on the Democrat Party’s Platform Committee in 2016. In short, the party is wildly out of touch with mainstream America — and becoming even more so with every day that passes.

Some analysts have suggested that President Donald Trump now has the Democrats exactly where he wants them: Looking like absolute fools on national television praising the regime in Venezuela, seeking to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), calling for open borders, demanding government-controlled healthcare, behaving like fascist savages or overgrown children while terrorizing conservatives, and more. But as self-proclaimed “moderate” Democrats try to bring the party back from the brink of destruction, it remains to be seen who will win out. Plus, by pushing amnesty and mass migration, establishment Republicans could still save the Democrat Party and destroy their own.

But for now, it does not look good for Democrats. When overconfidence on the part of an incumbent allowed self-styled “Democratic Socialist” Ocasio-Cortez to defeat a longtime congressman in a primary in ultra-liberal New York, the divisions that became apparent in the 2016 Democrat primary came into focus. Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez, for instance, proclaimed that Ocasio-Cortez was the “future” the party. A number of far-left candidates are even bringing Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders in to endorse them, hoping to capitalize on her sudden fame and her improbable victory and Sanders’ status as an outsider.

But then she started talking, making outlandish statements so far detached from reality that even the far-left “fact checkers” have called her out. She also revealed that her positions are more fluid than her comrades believe gender to be; for instance, she went from supporting a two-state solution regarding Israel and Palestine to opposing it almost immediately afterward. Conservatives celebrated, hoping to make her the face of the Democrats. “We need more people like her,” Trump ally and Brexit architect Nigel Farage told a group of young U.S. conservatives. “The more loophead socialists, the crazier — the crazier people that they put up for the other party, the better it’s going to be for you guys.”

But after she repeatedly made a fool of herself on national television in the weeks since her win, and after poll results showed three in four American voters would not knowingly vote for a socialist, Democrat bigwigs and the establishment behind them are re-thinking their strategy.

Former FBI boss James Comey, a Deep State swamp creature under fire for improperly protecting Hillary Clinton from prosecution, urged Americans to vote Democrat in the mid-terms. But a few days later, he was warning the Democrat Party that they would scare away normal people if they keep acting like kooks. “Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left,” Comey wrote on social media. “This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.”

In mid-July, a group of “leading moderate Democrats,” as the press described them, gathered in Columbus, Ohio, to argue that the party should quit bashing the free-market system and obsessing over income inequality. The conference, organized by the establishment-backed think tank “Third Way,” called on Democrats to focus more on promoting “opportunity.” The self-styled “center-left” organization, which would have been considered radical left just a few years ago, backs virtually the entire agenda of the globalist establishment and the far-left. But it does it using more deceitful rhetoric.

Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.), one of the participants in the Ohio conference, urged “progressives” to tone down the extremism. “It harms us in areas where we need to win,” he was quoted as saying. “To my progressive friends who got excited about Abolish ICE, I understand the emotions, the moral vacuum that is involved in splitting up families. But when you go out there and say, ‘This is who we are,’ you’ve now made life harder for the 60 or 70 Democrats fighting in districts where we need to win if we ever want to be in the majority. Abolishing ICE is not a real political proposal.”

But for many of his increasingly unhinged colleagues demanding open borders and socialism, it is a very real political proposal. In fact, as this magazine documented in 2016, the party’s platform committee was dominated by open communists and socialists, who used their positions to push the Democrat Party further to the totalitarian left than it has ever gone in history. Even radical leftists like Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) are no longer far enough left for the communist- and socialist-controlled Democrat Party of California, which endorsed her socialist primary challenger.

In some cases, the radical left wing of the Democrat Party is openly allying itself with mass-murdering communist regimes against the United States. Consider California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, who forged an unconstitutional treaty with communist China, the most murderous government on the face of the earth. The plan: In defiance of the U.S. government, continue implementing a globalist scheme to destroy the state’s economy and further centralize power over everything under the guise of stopping “climate change.” More than a few analysts suggested Brown was committing treason.

On the far-left, though, there seems to be little coherence to the agenda — except in terms of bringing down Western Christian civilization, the U.S. Constitution, and the God-given liberties enshrined in America’s founding documents. As an example of the cognitive dissonance now afflicting the far-left fringe working to take over the Democrat Party, consider a July 23 e-mail by the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org. The message touts two Muslim women running for Congress as “progressives,” Rashida Tlaib in Michigan, an Arab, and Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, who apparently got involved in Democrat Party politics as a child just six years after arriving in America. Of course, Islam takes a dim view of “women’s rights,” and homosexuality is a capital offense under Islamic law known as Sharia. And yet, the the e-mail soliciting support for the two Muslim women candidates says they will take on unspecified “attacks on women’s rights and the LGBTQ community” by Trump and Republicans.

One of several fringe groups involved in pushing the party even further to the left is known as “Justice Democrats.” After the Third Way “Opportunity 2020” event by supposedly moderate Democrats, the outfit release a statement slamming the “establishment wing” of the Democrat Party for its “losing strategy” that has resulted in “thousands of lost seats across the country.” “We believe Democrats should engage with working class Americans, we believe we have an obligation to mobilize disenchanted voters and give them a political home,” the group said, demanding government healthcare, “guaranteed jobs,” an end to “systemic racism,” and more. The outfit, founded by former staff of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, has endorsed almost 80 “progressive” candidates seeking public office.

But there is a growing amount of anecdotal and data-driven evidence suggesting that moving further to the left will decimate the Democrat Party even further. And despite the foaming at the mouth in the establishment media, even the establishment’s propaganda polls suggest Trump is doing just fine. In fact, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey showed Trump’s job approval rating rose to 45 percent, the highest level of his presidency in that particular poll. Among Republicans, Trump remains massively popular, with 88 percent of GOP voters approving of his job so far.

By contrast, at this point in Obama’s term, just 81 percent of Democrats approved of the job he was doing. Indeed, aside from George W. Bush, whom the nation rallied behind after the September 11 attacks, Trump was the most popular president within his own party of any other on the list, stretching back to Truman. That is bad news for Democrats who hope to peel away from supposedly disaffected Republicans to help win in 2020. And keep in mind, those numbers come despite a constant barrage of fake news and anti-Trump propaganda aimed at the president, something that is increasingly becoming obvious even to the president’s critics.

Ultimately, as readers of this magazine know well, the “establishment” of both major parties cares little about the voters or what they want. Instead, top Republicans and top Democrats are all part of the Deep State Swamp — a network that includes semi-secret organizations such the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg meetings, as well as true secret societies such as the Bohemian Grove and the Skull and Bones society. As such, rather than obsessing over controlled partisan politics, Americans who truly hope to preserve liberty and the Constitution should get involved in educating their communities about the Deep State and other key issues. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts.

Jesse Lee Peterson: Democrats Hate Black and Hispanics

Democrats Hate Black and Hispanics- Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson has mic cut after calling out lawmaker over bill

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Not all, not all, not all, but most Democrats today do not respect black people, or anyone else. Rather, they use blacks to push their own agenda. We all know that black “leaders” exploit the people – I’ve talked about Maxine Waters (“Auntie Maxine“)John Lewis, Barack Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus, NAACP (no different from the KKK), Black Lives Matter (worse than the KKK), Louis Farrakhan (modern-day Hitler) and false preachers, including T.D. Jakes and Michael Eric Dyson (not called by God but by their mama).

But let’s not forget about “white” politicians and others who also take advantage of foolish black and “minority” people who don’t know better. Because blacks are brainwashed to believe in “racism” (which doesn’t even exist, and never has), they support phony “anti-racist” efforts. They blindly support Democrats who never had their best interests at heart. Around 95 percent of blacks supported Barack Obama, the worst president in American history; the same supported the second-most corrupt president, Bill Clinton, impeached for lies and obstruction of justice.

Democrats hurt blacks more today than during slavery – supporting abortion, destruction of the family, LGBT madness, removing God from public life, creating ghettos and favoring criminals over the innocent. On June 28, I spoke at a press conference in Los Angeles held by Duane “Dog” Chapman (Dog the Bounty Hunter) and his wife, Beth – against a California bill that’s supposed to help black people, but in reality will hurt blacks.

I testified Tuesday, July 11, in Sacramento at a public safety committee hearing against so-called “bail reform,” SB 10, written by State Sen. Bob Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys, and Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, which would grant “pretrial release” to criminal suspects, freeing them from jail without posting bail.

I said that Sen. Hertzberg and the sponsors of this bill “hate black people.” He hates black women and black children. The presiding lawmaker, black Assemblyman Reginald B. Jones-Sawyer, D-South Central L.A., cut my mic in attempt to silence me and protect his Democratic colleague. The room erupted at hearing the plain truth – mostly in rage, some in joy.

I told Hertzberg that he does not respect black people. He and other politicians live in safe, often gated communities. Meanwhile they subject “poor” people to more victimization by setting suspects free, undermining the police.

Some lobbyists and bail-bonds people also opposed to the bill were upset with me. They thought I “pulled the race card” and called the senator “racist.” But I didn’t. I said he hates black people – blacks are the ones most victimized by crime. Unfortunately, Republicans, whites and too many “good” people are afraid to call Democrats out on their lies and hit them hard with the truth. Democrats lie about blacks being hurt by “racism.” Why not tell the truth about blacks being hurt by Democrats?

Crime expert Heather Mac Donald tells of black mothers around the country begging authorities to take drug dealers off street corners. I know people who have been raped, robbed, their homes burglarized – and they know the perpetrators but are afraid to report them. But people like Sen. Hertzberg don’t care.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood

Thankfully, some Democrats see how insane this bill is. Unfortunately, I don’t hear a loud outcry from anyone else against this insanity. Hertzberg and others say it’s unfair that some can afford bail while others cannot. So they lie and say it’s about “justice,” addressing “racial and economic disparities.”

But Christ said, “To him who has, more will be given. But for him who does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.” Because blacks and Hispanics lack moral character, so they lack physical things in life.

But money bail protects the community by making defendants accountable. Even criminals don’t want mama or grandma to lose her house if she posts their bail, so they’ll show up to court. Without bail, there’s nothing to stop them from committing more crimes, threatening and intimidating witnesses, skipping court dates and becoming fugitives.

Most criminals and their loved ones lean Democratic. Blacks and Hispanics, typically raised by single mothers, disproportionately commit violent crime. Liberals say “poor women of color” pay the most in bail for male loved ones. The obvious solution: Restore the family, and return children to fathers.

Phony politicians complain that jailing people costs money. Much more costly to communities is the crime and the “no snitch” culture in which evil people rule by fear over good people.

Sen. Hertzberg protects his own loved ones. Why doesn’t he protect innocent blacks and Hispanics? We see examples of “bail reform” failure in New Jersey where a similar law, signed by Gov. Chris Christie, went into effect just this January. A quick look at the website KeepCaliforniaSafe.com shows horrific examples in New Jersey of violent offenders let out after sexual assaults, drug and weapons offenses, strong-arm robbery – and some of those released are now suspects accused of shooting, car-jacking and even killing people after they were freed.

If government “leaders” truly cared about black and Hispanic suffering, they’d reduce crime not by leniency, but by restoring the family.

Kathleen Marquardt: EXTREMELY EARLY ONSET OF SENILITY IN YOUTH

EXTREMELY EARLY ONSET OF SENILITY IN YOUTH –Individuals have no rights on campus.”

by Kathleen Marquardt

Tom asked me to put together a piece on the lunacy of today’s youth. Because I have no imagination, I am sticking with stories I have found showing what is going on in today’s world of those younger than maybe 35. As I see it, the schools have achieved (at least 75% or more) the goal of changing American children’s attitudes, values, and beliefs. To do that, they had to dumb them down severely.

One measure of this accomplishment, IMHO, is the extreme amount of political correctness in today’s world of youth – colleges, elhi, and media. Every time that I think p.c.ness has been taken as far as it can go, I am proven wrong by a new no-no, e.g., today I read where some school said you can change your gender of choice daily, if you so chose. With everything so amorphous, there is no base, no foundation upon which values, attitudes, and beliefs can be grounded. It is as if moral relativity has metastasized into every atom of life. Someone, please tell me I am wrong – and show me why.

SASSE: WE’VE CREATED ‘ENDLESS, PERPETUAL ADOLESCENCE’ LIKE ‘PETER PAN’

There has never been a civilization that’s had perpetual adolescence before. Adolescence itself is only about a 2,500 year old concept, and it’s a pretty special gift.” Taking a broad view of human history, Sasse spoke of adolescence as a relatively new phenomenon allowing young persons to develop mind and spirit beyond pubescent maturation.

Contemporary sociological phenomena, added Sasse, have extended the adolescent phase to unhealthy lengths; stultifying of both individual actualization and broader civilizational development.

MEME: DISGUSTING TRUTH OF MODERN FEMINISM WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO THROW UP

On the pedagogical front, Sasse critiqued the status quo of classrooms as the primary means of educating teenagers. “Progressive” educational approaches to “protect kids from work,” he said, interfered with education’s higher purpose of “freeing kids] up to find meaning in work:” “I think it’s highly dangerous to think that the main thing fourteen- to eighteen-year-olds should do is sit still and be in a classroom inside for the majority of their waking hours, Monday through Friday.”

Over the past couple years; the concept of privilege has grown to be a ubiquitous part of the public discourse. It’s moved from a topic confined in large part to the ivory towers of academia, to one that is a commonplace aspect of mainstream political and social commentary. Its propagation can be seen in the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, perhaps the most visible (or at least most militant) force for racial identity politics.

MORE COLLEGE KIDS PLEDGE TO REMOVE TESTICLES IF TRUMP BUILDS WALL!: From USA Politics Today

Washington Sophomore Trent Griliphaen said he was inspired by the movement at The University of California, and that he “thinks that Trump’s construction of the wall is just an extension of his penis, and an expression of Patriarchal rape culture. Really, by building the wall, we are raping the Mexican people, and I am no longer willing to be a perpetrator of rape culture. If I remove my penis, I am making a statement that I reject this mentality.”

WHITES BANNED FROM CAFE DESIGNATED AS NONWHITE ‘SANCTUARY’

I heard about what was happening in California, and new that this kind of movement could gain traction up here – we are a progressive state. I kind of feel guilty, I’m removing my penis, but one of the other guys is going to castrate himself, and he’s even considering taking off a couple of fingers” stated Griliphaen.

ANTI-TRUMP ‘RESISTANCE’ WARN AMERICA: ‘BE AFRAID’

Town halls, protests, shouting matches and full-on riots are now commonplace throughout the country and now, leaders of the so-called “resistance” are using the firing of FBI Director James Comey to stoke the fire.
Speaking with reporter Sharyl Attkisson, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows that much of the funding behind the protests come from shadowy figures. “Well we do see some of that. I mean unfortunately we’ve seen a lot of that. They certainly have a name and they certainly have a face.”

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS REFUSE TO TAKE FINALS, DEMAND OTHER STUDENTS CELEBRATING CINCO DE MAYO BE ‘HELD ACCOUNTABLE’

For an institution that claims it encourages diversity, where were you yesterday when we needed you the most? Why do you encourage us to come here? Yet were forced to defend our existence every day on this campus.

I was utterly disgusted with students who chose to demean and appropriate Mexican culture. I walked on campus miserable as if I didn’t belong. As a black woman, I was forced to become the very thing society deemed me to be; angry.

Individuals have no rights on campus. Intersectional tribes do. The way that these tribes negotiate conflicting rights is a mix of Kafka and Orwell. In Orwell’s homeland, Oxford University’s Equality and Diversity Unit (a name that could easily have leaped from the pages of 1984) warned students that failing to make eye contact was a racist microaggression. The usual sensible responses accomplished nothing. Then autistic students complained that the microaggression guidelines were themselves a microaggression against students with disabilities. And the “Unit” quickly apologized and retreated.

The absurdity of the situation reeks of old Soviet anecdotes. But the same system exists in the United States.

THE COLLEGE BLUEPRINT FOR A TOTALITARIAN AMERICA

An individual’s right to free speech on campus derives from his membership in a group. What might be dangerously offensive  from a white man is fully legal when coming from a Latino woman or a Muslim man.
I am waiting (not with bated breath) for someone out there to show me there is hope for our future, that there are hordes of brilliant, hard-working, sincere, youth who will carry on Western Culture.

‘Crusader Knights’ Logo Comes Down

‘Crusader Knights’ Logo Comes Down

by Bill Lockwood

“The legs of the lame are not equal” (Prov. 26:7). A cripple may try to walk or run but his legs do not operate as a coordinated pair. Solomon compares this to “parables” in the mouth of fools—they should not try to be teachers. This is what our government has become. Fools effecting to give instruction.

The United States Army recently removed a sign outside the 8th Special Troops Battalion Warrior Training Center in Fort Shafter Flats, Hawaii, after it drew criticism for its religious imagery. It featured a medieval knight with crosses on his breastplate and shield. The cleansing of the sign occurred within hours after “the head of a religious-freedom advocacy group called for the image’s removal.” The government could not get the image down quickly enough.

Spokeswoman Sgt. 1st Class Mary Ferguson told Army Times that the image representing the “Fighting Knights” is not “an approved logo.” Putting as much distance as possible between the Army and any notion of “religion” Ferguson added, “Ultimately, this was human error and not representative of the unit or the Army.”
Mikey Weinstein, founder and president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, had earlier demanded the removal of the sign in an email to Maj. Gen. Edward Dorman. “Who’s asleep at the switch when it comes to these issues?” he queried.

According to Weinstein, a number of MRFF clients, including some Muslim soldiers, were offended and had asked the MRFF to intervene, which Weinstein was delighted to do. “We commend the Army for doing the right thing, but why did it happen in the first place?” Weinstein pressed. Weinstein’s email to Dorman additionally requests an investigation into the matter and the punishment of responsible parties. Such imagery “enrages our Islamic allies” and “emboldens our Islamic enemies,” he intones. Ocean View School District

At the same time, across the sea in sunny California, in the Ocean View School District, Spring View Middle School social studies class, the teacher incorporated lyrics to the melody of “Fight Song” by pop artist Rachel Platten into a history lesson. The altered words included Islamic teaching that “Allah is the one God.”
The modified lyrics read: “Like a sandstorm; On the desert, Sending camels, Into motion. Like how a single faith, Can make a heart open; They might only have one God, But they can make an explosion.” The chorus of the song goes like this: “Islam … Allah’s on the way; They will preach them loud tonight; Can you hear their voice this time?; This is their fight song; Spread Islam now song; Prove that they’re right song.”

One of the parents, Nichole Negron, objected, and posted pictures on Facebook showing drawings that her son brought home which included the song lyrics as well as a stick-figure man saying, “Believe in Allah! There is no other god!” In the stir that this created school Superintendent Carol Hansen, said, “It was unfortunate the lesson on Islam ended just prior to the tragic world events last week … I apologize on behalf of the district if the song used in the World History lesson may have offended anyone. It was not the intention of the teacher to incite, anger or offend.”

It is all just a matter of WORLD HISTORY! How can people object to World History lessons? The Superintendent seems irritated in this “apology” that we cannot, when it comes to Islam, teach history! It is not meant to “offend.” And she leaves the feeling that the “offense” came solely on the heels of the heightened nervousness due to the Paris attacks. What do we have? When it comes to remotely suggesting Christianity with a picture of a cross on a shield the government military is all about erasing it and punishing the offenders! How could this possibly occur in Mikey Weinstein’s world?!

But when it comes to teaching children in government schools about Islam, even going to the trouble of having them memorize “Believe in Allah! There is no other god!”—and teaching them songs of the jihadists–that is only history. How dare parents object to history! Maybe Mikey Weinstein ought to go back to Junior High where he can learn that the Crusaders with cross emblems were only a part of history.  Certain it is that Superintendent Carol Hansen could teach him that World History should not “offend anyone.”
