Ted Cruz To Endorse Trump?

According to various sources including some close to the Trump campaign, Ted Cruz is in what is being described as final talks on the logistics of a coming endorsement by Cruz of Donald Trump.

It could happen as early as Monday, before the debate.

This is fairly credible for one simple reason...Ted Cruz has finally realized the extent of the serious damage he did to his own future political prospects by his behavior at the 2016 GOP convention and his failure to honor the pledge he and other contestants made to endorse the eventual nominee, which was Donald Trump.

As I reported here, even many of Cruz's supporters at the convention went ballistic over Cruz's failure to endorse Trump.

That fallout continued after the convention. Last month, a poll showed that 43 percent of Texas Republicans wanted a different 2018 Senate nominee, with former Gov. Rick Perry getting a majority if he ran against Cruz in the primary. George P. Bush, the state's elected land commissioner and a popular figure in the state broke with Ted Cruz and his own family last month and heartily endorsed Donald Trump. And just a week ago, Cruz's own; campaign chairman in Texas, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick blasted Cruz by name and 'NeverTrumpers' in general for not getting on board, accusing them of helping Hillary Clinton get elected.

The final straw was RNC chairman Reince Pribus announcing that former primary challengers who’ve refused to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are likely to face difficulties getting the RNC to allow them to make another run for president.

I have a feeling that really got Ted Cruz's attention.

So, if this comes off, what difference will it make? It might have made a large difference if Cruz had kept his word and endorsed Trump at the convention, especially if he did what Scott Walker's doing and actually campaigned for Trump. That would have meant a far more unified Republican party going in, because it would have delegitimized a large portion of the #nevertrumpers. Now,the differences are going to be fairly minimal.

The #nevertrumper stance is fairly dug in, particularly among the paid for punditocracy and the GOP establishment. They like the idea of Hillary winning, because it means business as usual for them.

Polls show that Trump, without Cruz's endorsement, has the support of 80% of likely Republican voters, while Mrs. Clinton has the support of 81%. There are no polls showing how many Democrats are crossing over to vote Trump and vice versa for Mrs. Clinton, but based on the state poll numbers as well as Trumps inroads into the Latino and black vote, it's fairly easy to extrapolate those numbers going Trump's way, especially when you realize that Trump has energized a lot of people who haven't voted in some time and aren't likely voters. Many of the pollsters have mentioned this and it's driving them nuts.

So overall, a Cruz endorsement could add a couple of points to Trump's numbers in some places, if that. It certainly won't stop the attacks on Trump from the usual 'conservative' suspects, but then a lot of us stopped caring about what they had to say a long time ago.

But the real beneficiary, of course, isn't Donald Trump but Ted Cruz. If he endorses Donald Trump and then simply sits the campaign out, he can make another run for the presidency,  if he manages to survive being primaried in Texas. That, my friends is exactly why Cruz is coming out with this last minute endorsement.

Here's hoping Trump didn't promise him a position in the Trump administration for this gesture. Ted Cruz has already proven amply that he's no team player and that his word isn't worth much.

Black Lives Matter Hits Charlotte; Burning, Looting, 18 Cops Injured

Violent protests spearheaded by the BlackLivesMatter movement broke out in Charlotte, North Carolina last night.

The rioters (I'm not going to call them 'protestors', thank you) shut down I-85 and had a jolly time throwing rocks down on motorists from overpasses, which resulted in a number of accidents and 85 people being injured. Lots of videos at the link showing the mob cheering every time they hit a car.

They eventually set fire to the freeway and got busy breaking into trucks":

Then they moved on to a Wal-Mart on N. Tryon in the University area to loot and pick up some more goodies as part of the night's festivities. That store was closed today, with wooden pallets piled in front of the doors and shopping carts blocking the driveway into the lot. Anyone want to bet it doesn't reopen and takes a lot of badly needed jobs away when it closes its doors?

Something like a dozen police officers have been hurt today as the riots continue.

Charlotte has a white, uber-progressive Democrat female mayor in Jennifer Roberts who got elected by a very narrow margin and depends on the black vote to stay in office. So it's reasonable to imagine that she's followed the example of the mayor of Baltimore in ordering the police to make a minimum of arrests, sit there and take it and allow part of the city to be destroyed in the interest of 'peace.'

And in fact, there have been very few arrests made.

So, what was this all about?

Keith Lamont Scott, 43 was sitting in a parked car in the parking lot of a University City apartment complex. Three police officers approached him, one in plain clothes and two in uniform.

Police said they had been searching for someone who had an outstanding warrant at College Downs complex on Old Concord Road when they saw Scott leave his car holding a gun.

The police approached the car, Scott exited the car again armed with a firearm “and posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers, who subsequently fired their weapon striking the subject,” police said in a statement. “The officers immediately requested Medic and began performing CPR.”

The officer who fired the fatal shot was CMPD Officer Brentley Vinson, who is black.

A woman who said she is Scott’s daughter claimed on a live-streamed video on Facebook that Scott was unarmed when he was shot. The video went viral, with more than 521,000 views by 9:30 p.m.

In the video, the woman said her father was sitting in his car reading a book and waiting for the school bus to drop off his son. She claimed that her father was Tasered and then shot four times, and that he was disabled.

I think we'll find out later that this part is sheer fantasy. Someone who's been tasered isn't in any condition to pickup a gun.Not only that, but if he was tasered and that didn't subdue him (say, if like Rodney King he was high out of his mind on PCP), the police have been trained in other methods to subdue him.

The police claim that they recovered King's gun but did not recover a book and that they have witnesses and video backing up their version of things. So we'll see.

I'd also like to know what the warrant was for. I have a feeling it wasn't for an overdue traffic ticket.

The police have admitted that Scott was not the person they were looking for, so his death, if their version is correct, was solely due to his being stupid enough to get out of a parked car and advance towards police carrying a gun. If that's the case and Scott was a fan, BlackLivesMatter and their fairy tales might be the real villains responsible for Scott's death.

Meanwhile, Mayor Roberts says she has been in contact with the governor’s office, the White House and the NAACP. So no matter how this goes, expect the Obama DOJ to come down heavy on the Charlotte PD.

Oh, and one more thing. Donald Trump was already ahead in North Carolina, but this ought to seal to deal for him to carry the state come November...especially if Obama or Hillary 'comment.'

One Group Of Black Voters Trump Will Carry By 100%

On September 16th,Donald Trump became the first presidential candidate ever to visit Miami's Little Haiti community in a town hall setting. If you're moved by Donald Trump in front of a cheering crowd of 20,000 people, just watch him in a small , intimate setting here. Caveat...the video below had some glitches and interference at some very significant points. I'm told it was caused by reporters unplugging their equipment and exiting en masse as soon as some of the speakers stated talking about the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation and how they literally raped Haiti and stole millions of dollars in aid money after the horrendous 2010 earthquake, a story I've covered before.

The vast majority of Haitians both back in Haiti and here in America loathe the Clintons and here's what the community in Little Haiti had to say about that and other subjects to Donald Trump.

The Haitians have largely been a community that resembles some of the European immigrants we took in back in the early part of the twentieth century.As a group they are very much into education, and coming from Haiti, a place where simply making a living is a major test of self-reliance, a number of them have started successful small businesses once they recovered from their shock at the opportunities available in America.

And they'll be voting for Donald Trump. Perhaps when he's president, he really will appoint a special prosecutor and investigate what was done to Haiti by the Clintons. I hope he does.

It takes a special breed of people - and I use the term loosely - to exploit human misery for personal profit the way the Clintons did in Haiti.

Hillary Collapses Again? Cancels North Carolina Fundraiser

With Trump now in the lead in North Carolina, you'd think the last thing Hillary Clinton would be doing is canceling a lucrative and badly needed appearance in the Tarheel State.

But CBS reported that Clinton campaign officials said that a Tuesday fundraiser in the Democrat college town enclave of Chapel Hill was 'postponed' indefinitely, without any reason being given.

The fundraiser was billed as “lunch with Hillary Rodham Clinton” and had four donation' levels for attendees. They ranged from $100,000, which featured “chair reception with Hillary,” $33,000, which included a “host reception with Hillary,” $5,000, which included “preferred seating” and $2,700...which, I suppose, allowed you to have her used napkins or something as a keepsake of the happy event.

You'd think the lure of cash would have revived her, but apparently not.

North Carolina isn't just a battleground state with a close race according to the polls. This comes at a time when Donald Trump is surging and Mrs. Clinton badly needed to make an appearance to quell rumors about her failing health that now are looking more like reality. Here she is just two days ago...

trump's Tweet? "Hillary Clinton is taking the day off again, she needs the rest. Sleep well Hillary - see you at the debate!"

Whatever the reason, Trump took full advantage of Hillary's absence. He did events in Kenansville, a small Eastern North Carolina town at the Duplin County Event Center that drew at least 10,000 people...

And followed up with a similar sized rally in High Point:

A pretty excited young college crowd at the High Point rally!

Looks like a lot of people in North Carolina wanted to hear what he had to say, as opposed to a handful of elites at a fundraiser interested in buying access to a corrupt shill.

New Polls: Black And Hispanic Voters Are Turning From Clinton To Trump

According to new polls, Donald Trump is up to 20% among black voters, and rising. And among Hispanic voters, a very diverse group Trump is actually exceeding Romney, especially in key battle ground states:

In some places, Trump is actually outperforming Romney. In Nevada, for example, President Obama ran up a 47-point margin of victory among Hispanic voters in 2012, according to exit polls, defeating Romney 71 percent to 24 percent. A recent Marist poll in the state for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal showed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton leading among Hispanics, but by the smaller margin of 35 points, 65 percent to 30 percent.

A series of Univision polls earlier this month surveying Hispanic voters in four battleground states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida and Nevada — also put Trump in the same ballpark as Romney four years ago. Clinton’s lead over Trump among Hispanics in Colorado was smaller than Obama’s margin in that state in 2012.

A Bloomberg Politics "poll decoder" on Tuesday averaged several national surveys and found Clinton leading among Hispanics by 38 points. But Obama won the group by six points more in 2012, according to exit polls.

Actually, I think both these numbers for black and Latino numbers supporting Trump are understated. People in many of these communities might say one thing to pollsters and their peers just to go along to get along, but for a surprising number, what happens inside the voting booth is going to be quite different. None of this will be any surprise to people who have actually attended his Yu-uge rallies and seen the diversity of the people whom attend them.

The reason for that is obvious. Trump is talking bread and butter issues to the communities that have been hardest hit by Obama's policies. He's talking jobs to people that desperately need them. He's talking ending illegal migration to people that have to live with the results of increased housing costs, lower wages and diminished prospects. He's talking school choice to people desperate to get their kids out of dysfunctional public schools and better law enforcement to people that have to live with the reality of crack houses, gangs flourishing in their neighborhoods and the ever present danger of their children being murdered as collateral damage in street wars.

What's even more important is that he's going to their neighborhoods and talking directly to these people, not just issuing policy papers and statements. Mitt Romney had the baggage of his LDS faith, an issue for some Catholics and Evangelicals. But what I think really cut his numbers down among blacks and Latinos was that with rare exceptions he ignored them. There were few if any campaign offices in minority neighborhoods, little phone banking or canvassing and definitely very few if any rallies or campaign events,let alone poll watchers. That's why in places like detroit and Philadelphia you had precincts with 120% turnout and not a single recorded Romney vote.

Trump is doing exactly the opposite, and it's going to show up to a surprising degree on election day.

Fun fact: there's an organized campaign to get bigoted Trump hater Jorge Ramos removed from his slot as a news anchor at UniVison. And while Brent Bozell is heading it, the campaign is being driven by Latino journalists and public figures.

Whore Hay won't be leaving, of course but the very fact that his nonsense is being increasingly recognized is unprecedented.

The times, they are a'changing.

Gang Rape A Girl, Get A Slap On The Wrist; Help Convict Them? 16 years In Jail

Some of you might remember the Steubenville, Ohio rape case, where an underage girl who was drugged and unconscious was gang raped. A video of the rape went viral, complete with some of the party goers laughing hysterically over her being 'so raped' and  'dead.'

The story is also notable because the perpetrators, or at least the two we know about were members of the popular high school football team and there was an effort at a coverup by the school because of that.

The two football players, Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond,pictured above were only convicted because of the efforts of hacker Deric Losutter, who hacked into the Steubenville High School sports fan website and revealed incriminating evidence against two rapists and three others who may or may not have also participated and kept silent except for swapping obscene Instagram comments among themselves along the lines of ''no pity for whores' and how 'some whores deserve to be p*ssed on.'

Faced with also being prosecuted, the other three were given immunity to testify.

The duo's lawyer, one Walter Madison actually tried to make the case this was consensual because "She didn't affirmatively say no."

"The person who is the accuser here is silent just as she was that night, and that's because there was consent," he said.

Of course, as the judge pointed out, consent wasn't an issue since the girl was a minor and others testified that she was unconscious while all this was going on. But then, most defense lawyers usually aren't burdened much with morals and ethics...let alone concerned with the truth unless it provides a loophole of escape for their clients.

Richmond and Mays were convicted of the rape of a minor, but aside from some harsh words from the judge, nothing really happened to the two rapists. Ma'lik Richmond was back to playing football for Steubenville just a few days after serving only 10 months out of a one-year sentence in a juvenile detention facility. And Trent Mays spent just two years behind bars for the rape, but that didn't stop him from getting admitted to Ohio’s Hocking College and playing varsity college football there.

The real criminal, the one who felt the full force of the law on his back? Deric Losutter, the one the actually unearthed the evidence that convicted the rapists and got the others to plea bargain. The FBI raided Lostutter’s home and, then arrested and indicted him on four counts: three counts of unauthorized access to a computer used for privacy breach and one count of making a false statement to the FBI.

He's facing 16 years in prison. Lostutter’s lawyer, Tor Ekeland, says that the harsh sentence is based on the 1986 the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, or CFAA. It was originally only supposed to cover actual criminal activity, but it's been extended out of all proportion from its original intent and beefed up quite a bit, perhaps as a lesson to the activities of whistleblowers and the WikiLeaks phenomenon.

Yes, Losutter apparently had some involvement with Anonymous, a group for which I admittedly don't have too much sympathy for reasons I needn't go into. But one of the primary object of criminal justice used to be to determine who had been harmed.

Now, we've it seems we're returning to an earlier time, when justice is doled out unequally as a given, and a primary objective is simply to serve as an example pour encourager les autres, a warning to keep the peasants in line.

Can we blame this on the regime of President Obama? Of course we can. It's under his administration, particularly at the Federal level that the idea of justice being politicized and perverted depending on who it's aimed at has taken off on steroids.

A fish rots from the head.

Forum: Can America Unite Again?


Every week on Monday, the WoW! community and our invited guests weigh in at the WoW!Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week's question: Can America Unite Again?

Stately McDaniel Manor: One of the favorite tricks of defense lawyers is the “anything’s possible” ploy. They get a witness, often a police officer, to admit the wildest, most improbable happenstances are at least possible, and juries sometimes buy it, letting their guilty-as-sin clients walk. The truth is, everything/anything is not possible. Monkeys will never fly from my posterior. A billion dollars will never fall from the sky and land, intact, at my feet. I will never be 25 again, and I will never become a Hollywood starlet. But for the purposes of this forum, I’ll play defense attorney and stipulate it is possible America might once again be united.

Now let’s get real and consider why it’s more likely that’s impossible.

It is possible for all Americans to be united, one people, if they are taught the importance of that philosophy and practice. If, having been taught it, they believe it, and are willing to make adjustments in their thinking, manner of living, and manner of speaking to practice it in their daily lives, the possibility of the term “American” meaning more than just “one born in or naturalized in America,” exists. This state of affairs can thrive only if being American is unique, special, worth fighting and dying for, worth defending in every way and at every level, and superior in every way to tribalism, religion, ideology and party. It’s possible only if liberty yet burns in American breasts.

For around half of the residents of the American continent, that is no longer true. It hasn’t been for many years, and the Age of Obama has all but ended the possibility of American unity. This has been the probable turning point of the progressive determination to fundamentally transform America in their deranged, tyrannical image.

They have had near complete success.

Progressives now own--in control over philosophy and curriculum--much of America’s public school system. They own much of the popular culture, and virtually all of the so-called publically funded, and not a little of the private, higher education systems. With a few notable exceptions, they also own the media. The permanent federal bureaucracy is theirs, and so too is most of the federal judiciary at all levels. They are one justice away from complete control of the Supreme Court.

Under Barack Obama, they succeeded in all but eliminating the separation of powers, and have rendered the Constitution essentially meaningless in significant ways. Their destruction of the rule of law, and the trust of the people in the rule of law and government in general has been considerable, but not yet absolute. Our allies despise and mistrust us and our deadly enemies laugh at and have no fear of us.

It has often been said that progressives, hating the American people, have always wanted to throw us out and elect another. They are close to accomplishing that goal, having thrown wide our national borders with no concern for who enters, excepting they be highly likely to vote for Democrats. In fact, Progressives are determined to import hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Muslims, people whose allegiance is to Islam, then their tribe, and perhaps somewhere, far, far down on the list, America. It is an inherent part of the Progressive project to seek “diversity,” which by definition must mean the end of American unity. Demanding that immigrants have useful skills or trades, the ability to be contributing members of society rather than become eternal drags on the public treasury, that they become proficient in English, that they adapt to American customs and laws, that they abandon barbaric practices like female genital mutilation and honor killing of female relatives, and they not be vicious drug users and/or criminals, is anathema to progressives who see such traditional expectations as nativist and intolerant or counter-diversity.

They admit hundreds, if not thousands, of immigrants will be terrorists. So what? What you gonna do about it Gun and God clinger?

The sheer numbers of non-assimilating foreigners have another, more important purpose for progressives: to make a permanent democrat voting majority, to ensure none but hand picked progressive candidates will ever hold the White House. It’s working. Even now, with hundreds of thousands per year pouring over our borders, Republicans have an uphill struggle for federal office. A level playing field disappeared decades ago.

But it is not only in immigration that progressives separate themselves from their fellow citizens. We are, do not forget, a huge basket of deplorables, God and gun clingers, haters of all not like us, and our betters have a duty to remake America into Venezuela, though that won’t happen because they are so smart every Marxist/socialist pipe dream will work--this time--for the first time in history.

And what of Congressional Republicans? Most are RINOs. They have the backbones of squid and the cohesive courage of turtles. Some make noises about the Constitution and the rule of law, but no matter how many houses of Congress they control, they accomplish virtually nothing and the inexorable Progressive march continues, leaving Americans to vote for people like John McCain in the vain hope having someone in office with an “R” after their name will be somehow hopeful. If Donald Trump wins and they control both houses of Congress, it’s highly doubtful they’ll be able to do so much as repeal Obamacare. If Hillary Clinton wins, and they still control both houses of Congress, they’ll do worse than they did under Barack Obama. Obama set the tone and tactics; Hillary will extend them and run wild. She has promised as much.

Will America once again be a united nation? With half--and growing--of the population determined that it not be so? With the federal courts ruling requiting proof of citizenship to vote is unconstitutional? But hey, anything’s possible, right?

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason : In my heart I firmly believe America can unite again. The divisions we see in America have not come from the people. Division is a weapon used by the political elites along with a complicit media and educational system to maintain power. It is a successful formula: Create an aggrieved group and an oppressor and then promise justice. The challenge is for we as Americans to come together as we have in the past to speak the truth and call out these liars and their lies.

We can be united by restoring the rule of law and making sure the laws are applied equally to all regardless of race, background or gender. We also must make English the official language in America. We cannot be united without sharing a common language. We spend too much time and money accommodating those who live here, even become citizens, who refuse to learn English. They can keep their mother tongue and speak it in their homes, but to get on in our society everyone must learn to read, write and communicate in English. We all come from different backgrounds and ethnicities. Many of us still embrace some of the customs from our ancestors whether religious or cultural. But we have united as Americans and understand that the precious freedoms we have here do not exist anywhere else in the world. Unfortunately we are at a point in our history where we can lose these freedoms if we allow our fundamental rights to be eroded and abolished.

The progressive agenda of multiculturalism must be challenged at every turn, particularly with our children who are being immersed and indoctrinated at very early ages. There is nothing wrong with instilling in our children the exceptional values and traditions of our American history and culture. In fact we should be doing more of this in our schools, explaining the foundational principles of individual rights and freedoms enshrined in our Constitution.

Americans can be united again but it will not happen if we remain silent and allow this divisiveness to continue. It really is up to we the people and I do believe there are more of us than those who seek to divide and destroy this great country.

 JoshuaPundit: I think unity...or at least a resurgence of the amount of unity we had in say, the mid 20th century- is entirely possible.The Trump revolution and to a lesser degree the Bernie revolution might be contradictory in which end of the telescope they see things through, but their impetus is the same...a reaction against the self-appointed elites plundering and destroying our country. That's an incredibly hopeful sign, and an indication of how what we'll call the uniparty has misjudged how angry the peasants are. And I don't think the numbers are 50-50 when you come down to it, and in some surprising areas.

The factors behind our present malaise are these:

Abysmal, corrupt  leadership - The last three presidents are the worst in our history, and they were all two termers. We're talking about a quarter century of decline that worked out just fine for the elites or those entrepreneurs smart enough to surf the waves and make money out of it, but rather poorly for the rest of us. The amount of blood and treasure squandered for no purpose except the enrichment of the few (Including those in positions of authority willing to do the bidding of a certain kingdom or two in the Middle East) is a chapter of national shame. It's inevitable that an orgy of this kind and the necessary disregard for our laws, heritage, and national morality would foster the kind of disrespect for those values not just among the ones benefiting themselves by ignoring them but among those of us who saw it happen  without any consequences for the malefactors. Old Yiddish saying: 'A fisch rats fun de kop' (A fish rots from the head). True dat.

The decline of education and a free press - The unionization of America's school teachers and the penetration of those unions was a primary goal of the Comintern, the subversive organization the Soviets set up to promote their revolution world wide by infiltrating key western institutions. As David Horowitz chronicles in his memoir,  Radical Son, by the 1950's the teacher's unions in many large cities had been thoroughly penetrated by communists 'under party discipline.' This was one of the factors, along with the popularity in sections of academe of Franz Boa's ideas on deconstructionism (facts can be manipulated to fit your political ideology) were factors that contributed to what amounted to our own Cultural Revolution in the1960's. And of course, after the anti-war movement faded out once President Nixon ended the draft, many of the movement's radical leaders became tenured professors in our universities. Including in our journalism schools,  where the example of Woodward and Bernstein's fame and fortune after Watergate gave rise to the normalization of 'advocacy journalism.'

The deliberate division of Americans into groups and the pitting them against each other - This has been divide and rule on steroids. While the Democrats with their emphasis on identity politics have been the most guilty, the Republicans have played their own part in this. It has encouraged people to think of themselves as members of  a group with a label and a party rather than as Americans.

So, how do we fix it?

First, we have to realize that it has to be fixed. The alternatives are either national disintegration via secession or our very own Julius Caesar and the end of our Republic.

Second, we have to realize that the decay has been working for some time, and it will take some time to fix it. And that fixing it may involve using some of the means involved in causing that decay  in reverse.

We need leadership with courage, empathy, common sense and the knowledge of what it takes to get things done efficiently. The only candidate I see out there with those qualities is Donald Trump. He has one major drawback, that as an insurgent, he will be fought tooth and nail on any reforms by the members of the uniparty in congress, including some of those whom he defeated during the primaries unwilling to put aside their petty grievances for the good of the country. If that happens, a President Trump might need to use things like executive orders or leaning heavily on a GOP senate majority leader to invoke the nuclear option unless we, the People, rise up and let our representatives know in no uncertain terms that their jobs are on the line. As much as I hate the precedent being set, desperate times sometimes call for desperate measures.

Education can be reformed, but it must be from the bottom up. Governor Scott Walker proved that the teacher's unions can be defeated, a necessary first step. The ideas of school choice and vouchers are also an excellent first step, as is abolishing Common Core and turning education back to the states. The problem is that many of these states  embrace radical, leftist ideals and allowing them to control public education merely exacerbates the problem. A number of California's textbooks in these areas are to the left of Stalin. Far better to have a new, restaffed Federal Department of Education  write up guidelines that mandate curriculum at least for history, civics and social studies along with federal approval of textbooks in those subjects to make sure they comply and have patriotic content that teaches America's greatness rather than the quasi-socialist drivel too many of them contain now. I hate like the plague using the feds for this, but there isn't any other way. And if we are going to contribute federal money to public schools, we may as well use that leverage.
Just as G-d saw to it the the Hebrews wandered in the desert for forty years to rid themselves of the slave mentality, we will need to play the long game to rid our children of indoctrination and allow a new generation to emerge with proper and patriotic values.

Federal encouragement of home schooling wouldn't be a bad idea either. And so would federally sponsored online degree programs that allow students to get a college education at a fraction of the cost and with none of the indoctrination factor of many of today's brick and mortar universities.

It is vitally important to end the divisive splitting of Americans into groups and encourage us again to think of ourselves as one nation. again, Donald Trump has been the only candidate to make a point of constantly mentioning this in his stump speeches.

And finally, nothing unites Americans like a common threat, or an attack like 9/11.The last time this happened, we had mediocre leadership with a strong personal interest in protecting the complicit guilty parties. If such a thing happens again, G-d forbid, and we have leadership actually willing to lead us instead of lying to us, it would be a strong and enduring unifying factor.

Well, there you have it.

VIDEO: Elizabeth Warren Flees When Student Calls Her Out For Lying About Her Ethnicity

Image result for Elizabeth Warren, fake indian

Ahhh, the perils of Princess Passes Bull!

Elizabeth Warren is something of a villain to a lot of progressives these days and it has nothing to do with her lying about her 'native American' background to get a lucrative position at Harvard.

For all her nonsense about wanting to get Wall Street money out of politics, when it came down to it she endorsed Crooked Hillary, the candidate backed by sleazy Wall Street money instead of her political soulmate, Bernie Sanders. Even worse, after selling herself in hopes of being named Hillary's running mate, Hillary picked Tim Kaine and she's been reduced to shilling for Hillary in hopes of getting some kind of cabinet post.

In that role,Senator Warren appeared for Hillary at Ohio State University. But then (H/T, Legal Insurrection) a pro-Trump student used the opportunity of taking a selfie to ask a few questions and hilarity ensued:

Student:“How does it feel like losing to Trump this year?”

Warren: “We’re not going to lose to trump this year.”

Student: “Oh really!”

Warren: “We’re going to beat that [inaudible]”

Student: “But you lied about your ethnicity, you lied about your ethnicity to get a scholarship.”

Warren: [runs away]

Of course, it was a teaching job (one class, $400,000 per year) that Warren finagled with her misrepresentation of her ethnic background rather than a scholarship, but yeah, that's the truth of the matter.

Amazing Israel - Doctors Cure Paralyzed 6-Year-Old Girl

Surgeons at work

Little Six-year-old Ruthie Rosenthal, who suffered from paralysis after she fell and injured her spine is walking again and has full use of her hands, thanks to some amazingly skilled Israeli surgeons and the Almighty (BH).

Ruthie, who has Down's Syndrome, fell about a year ago. Complicated lumbar spinal fusion surgery was done which used screws to connect her skull and chest but the resulting pressure on her spine caused her to stop walking and she also lost the function of her hands.

Dr. Josh Schroder, a senior orthopedist at Hadassah Medical Center said, "Ruthie had a life-threatening condition when she came to Hadassah for treatment."

"It was clear that she required immediate surgery. I contacted the head of the spinal surgery unit at Hadassah, Dr. Leon Kaplan, in order to draw up a plan for the complicated operation."

The group of specialists decided on surgery in stages on the anterior and posterior areas of Ruthy's neck, performed by Dr. Schroder, Dr. Leon Kaplan, Dr. Moni Benifla, a pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Menahem Gross, a pediatric ENT specialist and a group of senior anesthesiologists.

"The last time an operation like this was performed was by Prof. Kaplan himself, the only person who does such surgery in Israel," said Dr. Schroder. "During the surgery we cut away the upper part of the spine and released the previous fusion in order to free the posterior vertebrae. We then performed a new fusion. Spinal surgery on such a narrow spine is very dangerous and sensitive and requires precise and meticulous work."

Schroder says that "This is a very rare case. Only due to the capabilities of the multifaceted team we managed to find a solution. Ruthie is now walking and has even strengthened her walking at the Alyn rehabilitation hospital. Her hands function perfectly and she is proving that everything could now be possible for her."

Ruthy's father Pinny said that "We received a new child. I want to thank first and foremost the Creator of the World who guided the doctors, headed by Josh Schroder, to find a cure for our Ruthie." He added that "They succeeded in doing the unthinkable.With G-d's help and with the help of the doctors, my daughter is walking on her feet and that is an unforgettable experience for us."

Amazing Israel...truly a Land of Miracles.

U.S. wire payments to Iran Prove Obama Lied About Money Laundering

 US President Barack Obama speaks to the media in Arlington, Virginia, on August 4, 2016. (Mark Wilson/Getty Images/AFP)

It's been proven that the United States made at least two separate payments to the Iranian government via wire transfer within the last 14 months, a Treasury Department spokesman admitted Saturday. So President Barack Obama was not telling the truth when he said that such payments were impossible.

This proves that the president knowingly lied, that the payments in cash were open appeasement to Iran as well as ransom for hostages, and constituted outright felony money laundering.

Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) discovered the two wire transfer payments during briefings with Obama administration officials.

At an August 4, 2016 press conference about a $400 million payment delivered in cash to the Iranian government that coincided exactly with the release of hostages Iran was holding, Obama said, “The reason that we had to give them cash is precisely because we are so strict in maintaining sanctions and we do not have a banking relationship with Iran that we couldn't send them a check and we could not wire the money.”

But a Treasury Department spokesman has now revealed that on at least two occasions, the U.S. did make payments to the Iranian government using wire transfers.

In July 2015, the U.S. government paid the Islamic republic $848,000 over a claim over architectural drawings and fossils that are now housed in Iran. Isn't it nice that our president is so scrupulous about paying Iranian claims when he won't allow U.S. citizens to sue Iran in our courts for damages? The second payment was made in April 2016,when the U.S. wired Iran $9 million to remove 32 metric tons of its heavy water from the Arak heavy water plant which is used to produce plutonium that can be used to make nuclear weapons:

The Treasury Department spokesman explained that the lifting of those sanctions allowed Iran “to gain incremental access to the international financial system, which opened up more options for executing transactions, such as the heavy water transaction” that occurred in April 2016. The spokesman declined to offer an explanation as to why the July 2015 payment was possible despite the full array of sanctions in place at the time.

Actually, both these payments violated sanctions still in place based on Iran's human rights abuses. The July 2015 payment was made while both human rights and nuclear-related sanctions were still in place, while the April 2016 payment was made while the human rights sanctions were in place.

That $400 million cash payment that Obama said could not have been delivered except in cash was part of a larger $1.7 billion settlement with Iran, the remainder of which was also delivered in cash. The president also claimed that the $400 million wasn't a ransom, but was paid to settle a dispute over military equipment ordered by the shah of Iran before the Ayatollahs took over.

That too is a fairy tale by our president, as anyone who knows anything about how arms deals and other large commercial deals are done between countries.

There's no way it was 'their money' we were holding:

The normal procedure is that the contracts are signed and the consignee (the purchasing country) goes to a large bank and obtains a Letter of Credit in the amount required. A Letter of Credit is a guarantee from a bank on behalf of one of its customers (in this case, Iran) to the seller's bank that the seller (in this case, the U.S.) will be paid in full to the amount of the Letter of Credit as long as the contracted goods and services are delivered.

To restate this more simply, the buyer's bank guarantees payment (normally they have the funds on hold) to the seller's bank when the buyer receive what they ordered.

Since, as President Obama told us, the arms were never shipped to the Ayatollahs, the money was never released to America by Iran's bank either.

So yes, that $400,000,000, was ransom money. And our president lied once again, without being challenged by a servile press.

And the reason it was released in cash? Simple...the Ayatollahs wanted a huge, physical amount of cash to photograph and humiliate America for propaganda purposes. Also, cash is fungible and easier to use without a paper trail to trace it. This was money laundering, plain and simple. And that is a felony.

So Obama lied about that too. End of story.

Less Than 300 Show Up for Hillary’s First Speech Since Illness... And Trump?


Ah, a tale of two campaign events....

Mrs. Clinton's first post illness appearance was in Greensboro, North Carolina to a huge crowd of - less than 300 people.


Ummm,not much of a comeback and she spoke for maybe ten minutes.

And Donald trump? He's doing at least two SRO event every day and enjoying every minute of it. Like this one, in Laconia, New Hampshire:

And here's the speech:

The crowd size and the level of enthusiasm among these deplorables is noticeably different from the Clinton event.

Small Donors Scammed By Clinton Campaign Using Repeat Unauthorized Credit Card Taps

Donate once to Hillary Clinton's campaign using a debit or credit card and you're likely be the gift that keeps on giving whether you want to or not.

The Clinton campaign has been caught red handed victimizing small, usually low income donors by the simple method of just resubmitting what was supposed to be a one time donation over and over again.


The New York Observer* has the story:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.

The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.

“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud.

“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.” The source, who has worked for Wells Fargo for over 10 years, said that the total amount they refund customers on a daily basis who have been overcharged by Clinton’s campaign “varies” but the bank usually issues refunds that total between $700 and $1200 per day.

The fraud specialist said that Clinton donors who call in will attempt to resolve the issue with the campaign first but they never get anywhere. “They will call the Clinton campaign to get their refund and the issue never gets resolved. So they call us and we just issue the refund. The Clinton campaign knows these charges are small potatoes and that we’ll just refund the money back.”

The source said that pornography companies often deploy a similar arrangement pull. “We see this same scheme with a lot of seedy porn companies,” the source said. The source also notes that the dozens of phone calls his department receives daily are from people who notice the fraudulent charges on their statements. “The people who call us are just the ones who catch the fraudulent charges. I can’t imagine how many more people are getting overcharged by Hillary’s campaign and they have no idea.”

The Observer also found a number of people who had been victimized by the Clinton Campaign in this way. One of them is Carol Mahre, an 81-year-old grandmother of seven from Minnesota who made a single one time donation of $25 dollars 'because I'm not rich.'

But when she received her US Bank card statement, she saw multiple $25 charges on it She contacted her son, Roger Mahre, to help to straighten the matter out.

Her son, an attorney said he called the Clinton Campaign numerous times:

“It took me at least 40 to 50 phone calls to the campaign office before I finally got ahold of someone,” Roger said. “After I got a campaign worker on the phone, she said they would stop making the charges.”

Incredibly, the very next day, Carol’s card was charged yet again and the campaign had never reversed the initial fraudulent charges. “I was told they would stop charging my mother’s card but they never stopped.” He added that he knows his mother did not sign up for recurring payments. “She’s very good with the Internet so I know she only made a one-time payment.” Roger also pointed out that even if his mother mistakenly signed up for recurring monthly payments then she should’ve been charged for the same amount of money each month, not multiple charges for varying amounts on the same day or in the same month. Furthermore, Roger said that after the campaign was made aware of this situation, the charges should’ve stopped but they never did.

The Clinton campaign overcharged Carol $25 three times and then overcharged her one time for $19, a grand total of $94 in fraudulent charges. The campaign’s overcharges to Carol were just a few dollars short of $100. This is in line with what the Wells Fargo bank source revealed to the Observer.

Since the campaign failed to amend the problem for Carol, Roger contacted her bank, US Bank. However, he ran into problems when he asked US Bank to refund his mother’s money. Roger told the Observer that the bank would not reverse the charges and that a bank spokesperson told him that they had no control over companies that make unauthorized charges. At that point, Roger decided to contact his local news and filed a fraud complaint with Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson’s office on behalf of his mother. After local TV news Kare 11 ran a story, someone from US Bank contacted Roger the next day and said that they had reversed and stopped the charges to his mother’s card.

A representative from Minnesota’s Democratic attorney general’s office told Roger that this problem wasn’t in their jurisdiction and that they had forwarded the case to the FEC. However, FEC spokesperson Julia Queen told the Observer they have no record of the case. “We don’t have it,” Queen said. The Observer contacted Swanson’s office and did not hear back.

Roger did eventually get a letter from a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign. In the letter, the lawyer wrote that his mother would be removed from their donor list; however, the campaign did not take any responsibility for the fraudulent charges.

“They basically said that they weren’t accepting responsibility for this but they’d remove my mom from the donor list,” he said. Roger is less than happy with the way the Clinton campaign has handled this nightmare for him and his mother. “This is a load of crap!” Mahre said. “The self-righteousness of politicians drives me insane. If you and I did this, we’d be thrown in jail. This is theft, fraud or wire fraud – it’s a federal crime!”

(Federal crime? Yeah, perhaps, but somehow, I wouldn't count on the FBI to investigate - ed. note)
Since Carol’s story became public, Roger said he’s heard from other people who have been ripped off by the Clinton campaign. “I’ve heard this is happening to other small donors,” Roger said. “People will donate $25 but then when they receive their credit card statement they are charged $25 multiple times.”

You have to wonder what kind of human being resorts to this, victimizing those whom can least afford it. And she claims to be the champion of 'the little people?'

Also, this is apparently not a new tactic for Mrs. Clinton, as the NY Times reported back in 2007, and she ended up having to refund a record $2.8 million in fraudulent donations.

She even reportedly did this to some of her own campaign workers in the 2008 campaign.

If she can get away with selling her office and confidential intelligence for hundreds of millions of dollars, she will assuredly skate on this scam, especially with the cooperation of loyal Democrats like Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson.

One can only imagine how Mrs. Clinton would behave as president.

Crooked Hillary, indeed.

Why Millennials Aren't Interested In Having Sex

(LANGUAGE WARNING:) The media says millennials aren't interested in having sex. Gavin McInnes of says he knows exactly who's to blame.

Hillary Returns ToThe Campaign Trail...For Now...

Mrs. Clinton, after 3 days of rest has reportedly returned to active campaigning. She's scheduled to hold a campaign event in Greensboro, N.C. and then attend the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute dinner in Washington, D.C.

Clinton, according to spokesman Nick Merrill, spent all three days off at her home in Chappaqua, New York.

According to her doctor, she's just fine.

But that diagnosis hasn't been confirmed by anyone but her private doctor, which raises questions in view of the way this was handled. In fact, numerous other doctors who have observed her are saying something very different,that she has severe health issues.

You'll remember on Sunday, she had to literally be carried to her van and would have fallen on her face if an alert Secret Serviceman hadn't caught her before she hit the ground. She couldn't even walk.

This wasn't the first time this had happened but this was on national TV so the press couldn't very well ignore it.

Clinton’s campaign first released a statement saying the former secretary of state “felt overheated” at the ceremony. But after videos surfaced and went viral online, the campaign released another statement from her private doctor revealing that Clinton had been diagnosed with noncontagious bacterial pneumonia, and that Levaquin had been prescribed for the next 10 days.

By the way, if it's 'noncontagious, how did Mrs. Clinton catch it? That seems to have puzzled a lot of medical professionals out there.


Levaquin can have some nasty side effects. There's an increased risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture in older patients over 60 years of age. Other side effects can include chest pain and severe dizziness, fainting, fast or pounding heartbeats;sudden pain, snapping or popping sound, bruising, swelling, tenderness, stiffness, or loss of movement in any of the patient's joints; confusion, hallucinations, depression...

Don't some of those symptoms seem to indicate that Mrs. Clinton may have been taking Levaquin prior to collapsing at the 9/11 ceremony?

In any event, as I wrote earlier, she has no choice. She has to keep going. The Clintons have already sold the presidency in advance, collecting hundreds on millions of dollars based on the promise of special favors later from various domestic and foreign sources via the Clinton Foundation,inflated speaking fees and campaign contributions

If she loses, well, that's one thing. It was a bad investment. But if she drops out, these people are going to be knocking on the Clinton's doors wanting their money back, and they don't have it, because a lot of it has either been spent or is locked up in the Foundation.

She has to keep going.

"Don't Look At WikiLeaks, Fellow Jackasses! Keep Those Blinders on!"

With these constant WikiLeaks disclosures of racist and anti-Gay slurs, sexism, outright lies, cronyism and crooked dealings, the Democrats have a major problem with keeping the troop's morale up as more and more comes out.

So interim DNC chief Donna Brazile has a solution...don't look! Stay away from the eee-vil Wikileaks and remain in blissful ignorance!

She said the hack was "carried out by the Russians" (no real proof of that,by the way) and since of course Donald Trump is a Russian agent and the font of all evil, even reading or downloading this foul heresy could infect your computer with malware so insidious, so destructive that it will explode and blind you forever more.

Never mind that WikiLeaks has an international reputation for sending out accurate, malware free items and that countless people have already downloaded the items in question without their hands shriveling up from's get thee hence, WikiLeaks!

Full disclosure. Having heard her speak several times, Donna Brazile is far from stupid. In fact, even though we disagree on a great deal, she's smart and articulate. But she's faced with an impossible job here.

First off, a lot of the people she's trying to convince have already sinned by downloading past WikiLeaks documents without being struck by lightning. And second, the surest way to get a lot people to check this stuff out is to tell them not to do it.

Having taken over from comic book character Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz who resigned after the first WikiLeaks dump that showed exactly how the Dem established rigged the game for Hillary in advance, Ms. Brazile is already dealing with a rough proposition keeping the peons in line. And then, there's dealing with the stupidity of the organization she's trying to to run.

After the Wikileaks initial release, some bright person at the DNC figured out that maybe some of their passwords got hacked. So they decided that they best way to fix it was - wait for it - to email new passwords the already hacked accounts!

You can't make this stuff up.

Trump's Killer Response To Obama Filling In For Hillary !!

With Hillary Clinton out of the way, President Barack Hussein Obama decided to leave the White House to spend hours helping the limping Clinton while major issues (or more likely,improving  his golf game) go untouched in Washington instead  of  having her running mate or her disreputable husband do it. After Obama flew to Philadelphia for a Clinton rally and fundraiser where co-chairs wrote a $100,000 check, Donald Trump issued an absolutely  killer response:


President Obama Would Rather Campaign For Hillary Clinton Than Solve Major Problems Facing The Country

Today President Obama Will Be Campaigning For Clinton In Pennsylvania. “President Barack Obama will hit the campaign trail Tuesday to rally support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania, a state that has served as a firewall for her party in the past six general elections but is now viewed as competitive.” (Kevin Freking And Kathleen Hennessey, “Obama Hits Campaign Trail For Clinton In Philadelphia,” The Associated Press, 9/13/16)

PROBLEM ONE: Obamacare Is In “Deep Trouble,” With Premiums Rising And Large Insurers Pulling Out Of Exchanges. “Obamacare is in deep trouble. The exchanges created by Barack Obama’s signature achievement are attracting millions fewer customers than predicted. The makeup of the system’s risk pool is older, sicker and costlier than anticipated. Some of the largest insurers in the nation have pulled out of the exchanges. Premiums are going up and expected to jump right before November’s election. Perhaps more burdensome, deductibles have soared so high that some Americans who purchased coverage through the system are essentially self-financing their care.” (Byron York, “Byron York: Obamacare Is Failing. Why Isn’t Donald Trump Talking About It?,” Washington Examiner, 8/28/16)

PROBLEM TWO: This Weekend Iran Threatened To Shoot Down Two Navy Aircraft Flying In International Airspace. “Iran threatened to shoot down two US Navy aircraft over the weekend as they were flying just inside the Strait of Hormuz, a US defense official said. The EP-3 and P-8 planes were in international airspace but ‘near Iranian airspace.’” (Barbara Starr, “US Official: Navy Aircraft Threatened With Shoot Down By Iran,” CNN, 9/12/16)

PROBLEM THREE: Last Week North Korea Tested Their “Potentially Most Powerful” Nuclear Weapon, Which State Media Said Could Be Mounted On A Ballistic Missile. “North Korea said it has hit the button on its fifth and potentially most powerful nuclear test Friday morning, claiming to have successfully tested a nuclear warhead. State media said the warhead could be mounted on ballistic rockets and would enable North Korea to produce ‘a variety of smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear warheads of higher strike power.’” (Katie Hunt And KJ Kwon, “North Korea Claims Successful Test Of Nuclear Warhead,” CNN, 9/9/16)

PROBLEM FOUR: Last Month The U.S. GDP For The Second Quarter Was Revised Down To A 1.1 Percent Annualized Rate. “America’s economic growth was even weaker than previously believed in the second quarter of the year, as the country’s gross domestic product ticked up an underwhelming 1.1 percent in April, May and June. U.S. GDP was revised down slightly from a previously reported 1.2 percent annualized rate, according to a report published Friday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.” (Andrew Soergel, “GDP Sinks Lower Despite Spending Uptick,” US News, 8/26/16)

PROBLEM FIVE: The September 2 Jobs Report “Whiffed On Market Expectations,” Showing An Increase Of Just 151,000 Nonfarm Jobs In The Month Of August. “August traditionally has been a difficult month for jobs numbers, and 2016 proved no exception, likely putting the Federal Reserve on hold for a rate hike anytime soon. Nonfarm payrolls increased just 151,000 for the month, extending the futility August has experienced over the years. This is now the 10th time in the past 13 years the month whiffed on market expectations.” (Jeff Cox, “US Created 151,000 Jobs In August Vs. 180,000 Jobs Expected,” CNBC, 9/2/16)

Give 'em hell, Donald!
