Who and What Threaten the Constitution?

Dr. Victor Davis Hanson
by Dr. Victor Davis Hanson: Donald Trump on occasion can talk recklessly. He is certainly trying to “fundamentally transform” the United States in exactly the opposite direction from which Barack Obama promised to do the same sort of massive recalibration. According to polls (such as they are), half the country fears Trump. The media despises him. Yet Trump poses no threat to the U.S. Constitution. Those who since 2016 have tried to destroy his candidacy and then his presidency most certainly do.

When, and if, we ever lose our freedoms, it will not likely be due to a boisterous Donald Trump, damning “fake news” at popular rallies, or even by being greeted with jarring “lock her up” chants—Trump, whom the popular culture loves to hate and whose every gesture and, indeed, every inch of his body, is now analyzed, critiqued, caricatured, and damned on the national news.

In general, free societies more often become unfree with a whimper, not a bang—and usually due to self-righteous pious movements that always claim the higher moral ground, and justify their extreme means by their self-sacrificing struggle for supposedly noble ends of social justice, equality, and fairness.

Media darlings, not media ogres, receive a veritable free pass to ignore constitutional norms. Champions of bipartisan consensus, “the people,” and the power of big government to do the “right” thing and advance social justice are the more dangerous to watch, not those championing the rights of the individual, and small and less intrusive government. Hillary Clinton, with a $1 billion war chest, a court media, and an array of highly paid pros, not the fly-by-night, improvised Trump campaign, was the expression of big media, big politics, big government, and big money eager to have one of their compliant own in the White House.

Philip II and his idea of Greek ecumenicalism, followed by his son Alexander and his “brotherhood of man,” ended the free Greek polis. The “healer” and consensus builder Augustus did away with the Roman Republic. Hitler claimed he was the good kind of socialist and only wished total power to redress the injustices of Versailles, and, besides, he was an environmentalist, vegetarian, non-smoker, animal lover, and opera buff to boot. Lenin promised an end to czarist oppression and asked only enough force to bring fairness for the little guy. Mao Zedong claimed he only wished to have the clout to end foreign contamination, landed oppression, and Mandarism and selflessly would do it all for the proverbial people. All of these revolutionaries believed in violating past norms of accepted lawful custom and practice to “save” the country.

Today’s most destructive totalitarians in Cuba, Iran, Nicaragua, North Korea, and Venezuela are adored by a toady press and are said to do their all for “the people.” Such revolutionaries do not oppose the power of the permanent administrative state, but seek to weaponize and collude with it.

The point is not that Trump is a saint, or that Obama, for example, a sinner. Rather, when the media become unctuous and complicit with those whom they are supposed to audit and cross-examine, then politicians and political movements—especially those voicing utopian bromides—grow ever more emboldened, empowered and occasionally quite dangerous. No mainstream media talking head has yet declared Trump a “God” or praised his pant creases. For all Trump’s bluster and ego, he has not reacted in kind promising, as some sort of deity, to reduce the planet’s temperature and lower its seas.

Try a thought experiment. What if Donald Trump tomorrow was caught ordering Attorney General Jeff Sessions to monitor the electronic footprints of Associated Press reporters, or to surveille CNN’s Jim Acosta and his grandparents?

What if Trump had just jailed a videomaker on trumped up charges of violating parole for making a left-wing internet video that he found an obstacle to his fabricated government version of a disaster overseas?

What exactly would the New York Times do if it were found out that George Soros and the Steyer brothers were being hounded by a right-wing version of Lois Lerner and a politicized ring at the IRS?

What would our media—92 percent negative in its current coverage of Trump—say if the Trump FBI, Justice Department, and CIA, were collectively actively working with the Trump 2020 campaign to monitor (as in the notion of “insurance”) rumors that a Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, or Elizabeth Warren was allegedly colluding with the Iranians, Chinese, or other foreign nationals to alter the upcoming election—or so they would allege?

Imagine a Trump-supporting Justice Department official meeting with a Trump-supporting FBI agent to craft strategies for how to spread a Trump-financed opposition-research smear dossier on Harris, with help of a Trump-supporting CIA head and Trump-supporting State Department. What exactly then would the New York Times or NBC News do—claim that Trump was only legitimately acting preemptively on “legitimate” worries that Harris was working with the Iranians or the Chinese to get an edge in the 2020 election?

Would the New York Times have printed the anti-Obama op-ed of a “resistance” member, who vowed that he/she and scores of others were actively at work inside the Obama White House, in apparent illegal fashion, to subvert Obama’s administration, on the rationale that he was dangerous both to the country and Democratic Party values? More likely, a Times editor would have turned over any such deep-state, self-confessed obstructionist of Obama to the FBI, and then boasted of the paper’s loyalty to the administration.

During Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, we saw just how fragile a 231-year-long American institution of due process actually was when it was seen as an obstacle to social justice, the anti-Trump forces, the #MeToo movement, and the general progressive agenda.

We recently came within a few hours of establishing a dangerous precedent that the hallowed U.S. Senate could destroy a nominee for high government service on hearsay reports of assault 36 years in his past, without requiring a shred of physical evidence, without a single witness, without one collaborating testimony, without a sole detail of where and when and how the alleged crime took place. Instead, a sympathetic media redefined right thinking and empathy as believability and, with it, credibility. The resulting fact-free “credibility,” of course, then equated to Kavanaugh’s guilt and the frenzied psychodramas to follow.

The Senate just about established a precedent that the motive of the accuser should not be questioned because it was a priori noble, at least if the ideology and sex of the accuser fit predetermined approved categories. In the most disturbing downturn of the entire Kavanaugh circus, the media and Senate Democrats lauded Christine Blasey Ford as courageous and brave for at first sending an anonymous letter with all sorts of unsubstantiated charges and quite misleading accusations—as if that act was any more ethical than at least coming forward to try to pursue her efforts to destroy Brett Kavanaugh.

In 2009, the blue wall was praised as the good ole Electoral College bulwark of Obama and his new Democrats against the forces of Republican illiberalism. We were lectured that Republicans had “lost” the Electoral College for good, when there was certainty that big electoral-vote states like California, Illinois, and New York were already forfeited before Election Day.

In 2009, the Senate’s Democratic supermajority was also a fine and noble thing, and came about because correct-thinking senators from tiny states, like Sheldon Whitehouse and Jack Reid of Rhode Island, were given the power to more than offset odious right-wing big-state Texas senators.

It was also considered a good thing that since 1869 law, custom, and precedent had settled on a nine-justice Supreme Court. The Earl Warren years proved that reality well enough, which had withstood the anger of indignant conservatives whining that the court was making rather than interpreting laws. Indeed, in the liberal mindset, even when a Republican president picked conservative jurists, if they were at least intelligent—a Justice Blackmun, Brennan, Kennedy, O’Connor, Souter, Stevens, Stewart—they would inevitably embrace the truth, drift leftward, and do the right thing.

Yet in a second, our sober and judicious politicos and elites, many of them with Ivy league law degrees and years of government service, are now dreaming of abolishing the Electoral College, to amend the Constitution to turn the Senate into something akin to the popular House of Representatives, and to pack the Supreme Court in the manner that a demagogic Franklin Roosevelt had sought but failed to do—and all because the institutions reflect current and always volatile political trends that are not especially pro-progressive in the present age.

The tactics of the grassroots mobs now are articulated and amplified by progressives in government and the media. Senator Cory Booker is now channeling Barack Obama, calling openly for progressive shock troops to get into the faces of his opponents.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) wants the mob to hunt down the anti-progressives in restaurants and gas stations. Hillary Clinton claims that her party can only be civil when back in power. Former Attorney General Eric Holder talks of metaphorically (?) kicking his opponents.

The concrete manifestation of such advocacy is something like downtown Portland where Antifa mobs storm intersections to hound drivers suspected of being counterrevolutionaries, or getting in the faces of Senators in elevators and on the way to work or scratching at the locked doors of the Supreme Court. Apparently, the rhetoricians of hate have assumed that James Hodkinson, the Bernie Sanders volunteer who shot down Rep. Steve Scalise, and tried to kill many more Republican representatives, had never existed. If any celebrity, has-been or not, had voiced the sort of violent hatred toward Obama that a Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, Kathy Griffin, Madonna, Peter Fonda, or Snoop Dogg has expressed toward Trump, they would be on a FBI watchlist.

So as a general rule, beware of any political movement that is in rank collusion with the media, that talks seriously about altering the ancient Constitution to achieve current political advantage, that enlists as an ally, and thus weaponizes and warps, the permanent bureaucracy of government to ignore the law, if it just hounds the right people, that both contextualizes and in turn is empowered by mob tactics, and that assumes its superior moral agendas and sophisticated and enlightened thinking should justify any means necessary to achieve its ends—and thereby save humanity from its deplorable and irredeemable self.

A Pastor's Prayer, Trump vs. Stahl, The Violent Left

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: A Pastor's Prayer - What a dramatic weekend for Pastor Andrew Brunson!

On Friday, Brunson was standing in a Turkish courtroom convicted on terrorism charges. Twenty-four hours later, he was celebrating his freedom in the Oval Office with President Trump and congressional leaders.

Many kudos to Commissioner Kristina Arriaga of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. Arriaga has been a leading advocate for Pastor Brunson. She testified before House and Senate committees on his behalf and made several trips to Turkey to attend his court hearings.

Perhaps the most breathtaking moment at the White House Saturday was when Pastor Brunson asked if he could pray for President Trump. The president said, "Thank you. Well, I need it probably more than anybody in this room."

So Pastor Brunson got up from his chair, placed his hand on the president's shoulder and took a knee in the Oval Office while he delivered an incredible prayer for Donald Trump. Here's what he said:

"Lord God, I ask that you pour out your Holy Spirit on President Trump, that you give him supernatural wisdom to accomplish all of the plans you have for this country and for him.

"I ask that you give him wisdom in how to lead this country into righteousness. I ask that you give him perseverance and endurance and courage, to stand for truth.

"I ask that you protect him from slander, from enemies, from those who would undermine. I ask that you make him a great blessing to this country.

"Fill him with your wisdom, and strength, and perseverance. And we bless him. May he be a great blessing to our country. In Jesus' name, we bless you. Amen."


What a contrast to another interaction in the Oval Office between President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

Trump vs. Stahl - President Trump sat down recently for an interview with Leslie Stahl that aired on "60 Minutes" last night. The show was one long reminder of why half the country voted for Donald Trump.

Stahl repeatedly interrupted the president, yet time and again he responded without any wavering or weakness. At one point, Trump shot back, saying, "I'm president and you're not."

Stahl demanded that Trump pledge he would not fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The president responded, "Why should I pledge to you? . . . I don't have to pledge to you."

The entertainment magazine Variety declared that "60 Minutes" was "outmatched" by Trump, adding, "He won every segment of the interview." If you missed the interview, you can read the transcript here. I cannot imagine any other Republican being that strong.

I am still trying to process Mitt Romney's cave to Candy Crowley!

"Gosnell" Makes Top 10 - The movie "Gosnell" debuted Friday and finished in the top 10 from the weekend results. That is an amazing accomplishment given that it had a limited opening in fewer than 680 theaters, compared to 4,250 for the weekend's number one film.

Moreover, there were virtually no reviews of the movie. Only one review by the Los Angeles Times could be found. Hollywood has blacklisted the film because it exposes the ugly reality of abortion on demand. Facebook and NPR also banned advertising for "Gosnell."

I strongly encourage you to check it out.

The Violent Left - The Republican Party headquarters in Manhattan was attacked last week by Antifa. The group smashed windows, vandalized the office and left a threatening warning. Just consider these excerpts:

"Tonight, we put the Republican Party on notice, in defiance to the policy of mass misery they have championed.

"The U.S. government has established concentration camps around the country for Latino people, shamelessly murdering black people, and continues its war machine that has slaughtered Muslim people with impunity for decades. . .

"Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize. . . The US fascist political system is one of the most savage institutions in history and we will combat it relentlessly until all are free of American barbarism."


I wish these radicals would quit trying to "fundamentally transform" America. If they hate it so much, they should just leave! I suspect we would do quite well crowdfunding one-way tickets to Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba or whatever "workers paradise" these leftists chose to go to.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, violence erupted once again in Portland when Antifa thugs showed up to protest the Patriot Prayer march for law and order.

The Patriot Prayer group called for their march in response to left-wing groups taking over the streets of Portland recently. Progressive demonstrators literally stopped cars and redirected traffic, while yelling vulgar insults at drivers.

It's worth remembering that the Obama Administration declared Antifa to be a "domestic terrorist group." The message left at the Manhattan GOP office confirms it. The group is seeking the violent overthrow of the government. That is spelled out very clearly.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to devote more resources to crushing this violent anti-American organization. People who engage in assaults and threaten the democratic process should be in jail.

My friends, the left's propensity to commit violence must be a major issue in the election. The left must be punished at the ballot box for flirting with fascism. But it is getting all kinds of support from left-wing politicians.

Quotes by multiple Democrat candidates reveal just how radical their party has become.
  • Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder are denouncing civility and stoking violence.
  • Andrew Cuomo referred to ICE agents as "a bunch of thugs."
  • Stacey Abrams, who is running for governor of Georgia, said that November's "blue wave is "comprised of those who are documented and undocumented." Really? Is Abrams seeking the votes of illegal aliens?
  • In Arizona, Democrat Senate candidate Krysten Sinema once said that she was "fine" with Americans going to fight for the Taliban.
  • The communications director for a Democrat group backing Phil Bredesen in the Tennessee Senate race once said that "white male gun nuts" were the most dangerous terrorist group in America.
  • Speaking at a fundraiser yesterday for the New Hampshire Democrat Party, actor Alec Baldwin thought it would be really funny to jazz up the crowd by saying, "It is time to overthrow the government of Donald Trump."
If Republicans were making statements like these, the media narrative would be all about right-wing bigotry and extremism. Instead, we're getting story after story about the left's "sky-high enthusiasm."

Will Violence Become Part Of Politics?

John C. Velisek
by John C. Velisek, Contributing Author: Today, a portion of those who are members of our society have denigrated the moral underpinnings of our country and resorted to violence and intimidation of those who continue to believe in this country and the equality that we have been striving for. I was taught by a Chief Warrant Officer that there is no color in the U.S. Navy, that everyone is haze gray. I never forget that and always treated everyone fellow sailor with the utmost respect.

The progressive socialists are continuing the identity politics and tribalism that Barack Obama made a part of everyday life for Americans. Today America is split into different groups, pitting white against black, men against women, rich against poor, and various other groups that the progressive socialists can use to separate our country. The progressives and the compliant media have spouted such platitudes as “systemic racism,” “implicit bias,” “misogyny,” “systemic racism” and “inequality” in an effort to splinter the American Unity that they so abhor.
This country is not perfect, and all admit that there are areas that need fundamental work, but getting in peoples faces with threats and intimidation will only bolster the people that they are targeting. The conservatives and Christians are in the crosshairs as well as white men.

The progressive socialist Democrats have besmirched a Judge with a stellar record, making hysterical allegations that have not been proven in order to plunge our country into chaos. The hide behind the fact that they call it a “job interview” so they can continue to work with the media to lie about Judge Kavanaugh and spread lies and innuendo with absolutely no proof.

George Soros funded group MoveOn.org planned violence along with others when Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed. University of Maine is giving college credits to students who leave to protest. Yale closed classes to allow their students time to protest. They will claim that it is their right to protest but refused to give the same right to pro-Kavanaugh supporters. They have torn up signs, attacked the supporters and shouted them down.

Even Robert Reich who was Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor in assisting in this incitement of violence. Robert Reich has already proclaimed the FBI investigation as a sham. He didn’t read it but he does have the progressive socialist talking points down pat.

Not yet to be explained about this entire debacle is why Sen. Feinstein waited until the final moments to spread this trash and assure the complicit media would work with the progressive socialists in inflicting the maximum pain and damage upon the Judge, his family, and the country.

It is informative that all the media and the leftists were not talking about the allegations, but the temperament shown by the Judge during his grilling by ideologues that would not vote for him anyway. I didn’t blame him for being angry after what he was being accused of doing with absolutely no corroboration.

After the FBI has finished the investigation and found no proof of the allegations, the next step came into focus. So now the paid shills of George Soros, the socialist of the Hollywood crowd, and the political sycophants that are promoting the violence against members of the political class which you do not agree with are promising violence to President Trump, Judge Kavanaugh, and even citizens of our country who do not agree with the socialist policies that they are attempting to force on the American people.

The American left is anti-Christian, Anti-unity, and has been shown to have no morality, so shame, and no decency. In the past, Republicans and conservatives have meekly allowed the progressive socialist Democrats to push the agenda. The reason for the escalating violence and intimidation attempts is because the conservatives are fighting back and see through the lack of policy of those socialists who think they are our betters and should be given the opportunity to run our lives.

The examples are growing day by day. Rep. Andy Harris, Republican from Maryland faced protesters who tried to break into his office. Republican Senators who are supporters of Judge Kavanaugh have been accosted in airports, restaurants and even Capitol Hill by protesters who are nothing more than sociopathic malcontents bought and paid for, and encouraged by the leftists. This is nothing more than what the progressives socialists learned at the altar of Alinsky follower Barack Obama and the old Soviet system. We even have Groping Joe Biden calling conservatives the “dregs of society”.

Some leftists finally understand that the policies they espouse do not work. The demographic changes that they are attempting to bring about is not working and caused those that adhere to the traditional moral values to vote and continue to win.  A majority of Americans do not want the country to turn into Venezuela, and they reject the policies that would make it so. Using the Alinsky principles, the only avenue left to the progressive socialists is personal destruction and violence.

The American people understand that Judge Kavanaugh is a constitutionalists who will interpret the law as written. The leftists cannot stand this fact. With Judge Kavanaugh on the bench, they are not able to use other activist judges to push through decisions that the American people don’t want or need.  Most Americans don’t want a weaponized government or a party that cannot define what they are for but instead seek to use positions of power to end any debate against those with policy differences.

The left’s sliming of Judge Kavanaugh did not work.  The progressive socialists efforts to shame him out of becoming a Justice of the Supreme Court failed. They failed to consider that Judge Kavanaugh and the American people were / are stronger and wiser than their false allegations.

ACLU Attacks Border Wall & Kate’s Law

. . . Sacrificing national security and citizen liberties.
by Michael Cutler: Border Security is national security.

The preface of the official government report, 9/11 and Terrorist Travel began with the following paragraph:
It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.That report was authored by the federal agents and attorneys who were assigned to the 9/11 Commission. The 9/11 Commission was created and tasked with conducting an exhaustive investigation into how the 9/11 terrorists were able to carry out the most deadly terror attack in the history of the United States.

Indeed, the 19 hijacker-terrorists slaughtered more innocent victims on September 11, 2001 than did the Japanese fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the death toll continues to rise as still more people, including valiant first responders succumb to illness directly attributable to the toxins they were exposed to when the World Trade Center Complex was reduced to rubble.

Today more than 10,000 people are being treated for illnesses directly related to those terror attacks.

The mission for the 9/11 Commission was not simply to document that which had transpired on that horrific day, but to identify the vulnerabilities that enabled those attacks to be carried out so that remedial measures could be implemented to prevent future attacks.

The 9/11 Commission determined that multiple failures of the immigration system, including failures of border security and a lack of interior enforcement of our immigration laws, undermined national security. These failures enabled, not only the 9/11 terrorists to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations, but also other terrorists that the 9/11 Commission studied.

Since the terror attacks of 9/11, additional deadly terror attacks have been carried out by aliens who, in one way or another, managed to enter the United States, commit immigration fraud and/or violate other immigration laws and then commit mass murder.

Other foreign terrorists were thwarted, either by law enforcement, by courageous civilians, by dumb luck or by their own ineptitude.

My recent article, Congressional Hearing: Iranian Sleeper Cells Threaten U.S. included the Congressional testimony of national security experts who warned of the presence of large numbers of terrorists in Latin America who are supported by Hamas and Hezbollah—funded by Iran in Latin America—who are increasing their cooperative efforts with drug trafficking organizations to move large quantities of narcotics and individuals into the United States across the highly porous U.S./Mexican border.

That hearing was conducted on April 17, 2018 by the House Committee on Homeland Security, Counterterrorism and Intelligence Subcommittee on the topic, "State Sponsors of Terrorism: An Examination of Iran’s Global Terrorism Network."

How then could any rational individual or organization oppose securing our nation’s borders against the entry of international terrorists and/or transnational criminals?

That is the question that the executives of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) should answer.

On October 12, 2018 the ACLU issued a press release: ACLU Responds To Introduction Of McCarthy Immigration Bill.

Here is what the press release contained:
WASHINGTON — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy introduced a bill today that includes provisions to violate the constitutional rights of immigrants and inflate the Department of Homeland Security budget.

The bill would allocate $23.4 billion for a border wall, which even members of the Republican party have referred to as a “quantum leap” in funding. The sweeping bill also includes several bills previously introduced in the House that raise serious constitutional concerns.

Lorella Praeli, deputy political director at the American Civil Liberties Union, had the following response:

“Let’s be clear: this bill is blatant political posturing ahead of the election and a total disregard for how voters want the government to use their taxpayer dollars. It rewards Trump for his brutal deportation force crackdown and family separation policy. Moreover, the bill is riddled with constitutional violations that completely disregard the civil and human rights of immigrants.

“The true intent of these bills is to empower Trump’s deportation force and anti-immigrant agenda. It’s inhumane, unacceptable, and voters will remember it in November.”
A border wall would not stop the lawful entry of even a single alien into the United States, or prevent anyone from having access to a U.S. port of entry.

All that a border wall would do is funnel all traffic destined to the United States into ports of entry where inspectors of CBP (Customs and Border Protection) would interview them, examine their documents and make law-based decisions as to whether or not to admit those aliens into the United States.

The grounds for excluding aliens from entering the United States are enumerated in one of the sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)- Title 8, United States Code, Section 1182. Among these classes of aliens who are to be prevented from entering the United States are aliens who suffer from dangerous communicable, diseases or extreme mental illness.

Additionally, convicted felons, human rights violators, war criminals, terrorists and spies and aliens who were previously deported are to be excluded, as well as aliens who would seek unlawful employment thus displacing American workers or driving down the wages of American workers who are similarly employed and aliens who would likely become public charges.

It is vital to note that our immigration laws make absolutely no distinction in any way, shape of form as to the race, religion or ethnicity of any alien.

Opponents of border security would undermine national security and the integrity of the immigration system itself, leading America to anarchy.

Additionally, the above-noted ACLU press release made note of “several bills.” The link that was provided in the press release related specifically to “Kate’s Law” named for murder victim, Kate Steinle who was killed by an illegal alien who had previously been deported multiple times by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents and repeatedly reentered the United States in violation of federal law.

Criminal aliens who are deported from the United States and then unlawfully reenter the United States face a maximum of 20 years on prison. Kate’s law would mandate that such aliens who are deemed “aggravated felons” would face a minimum of 5 years in prison for committing the crime of unlawful reentry. Aggravated felons are particularly dangerous criminals who have committed specific felonies for which they were convicted.

The enhancement in punishment for such criminals are intended to act as a deterrence against such threats to public safety from returning to the United States, thereby threatening innocent lives.

As I noted in a recent article, Sanctuary Policies Protect Sex Offenders, this section of law is of particular interest to me. In the early 1980’s I approached then U.S. Senator Al D’Amato with the proposition that the federal law that addressed the unlawful reentry of aliens who had been deported be amended. At the time, the section of law in question, 8 U.S. Code § 1326 provided for a two year maximum penalty for aliens who had been previously deported from the United States and subsequently reentered without authorization. Because the penalty for this crime was so low and because so many aliens who had been deported from the United States returned, the U.S. Attorneys, particularly in major cities such as New York City, rarely prosecuted aliens for that crime. Back then the law made no distinction between aliens who had been convicted of committing serious crimes and those who did not.

I suggested that a clear distinction be made for aliens who had been convicted of serious crimes, were deported and then reentered the United States. I suggested that they be subjected to a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison as a means of deterring such threats to public safety and possibly national security from returning to the United States where they might harm more victims.

Working with the Senator and his staff and with my colleagues at the former INS including Walter Connery, who headed up the Investigations Branch of the NYC District Office of the INS, the law was amended. Consequently, the crime of unlawful reentry of “aggravated felons” as specified in section b of 8 U.S. Code § 1326, is the most frequently prosecuted federal crime.

However, the ACLU adamantly opposes efforts to protect innocent victims from aliens who are convicted felons. The American justice system operates via the principle of deference through enforcement. Penalties are imposed on those who are convicted of crimes to not only punish the guilty but to deter future crimes.

Deporting criminal aliens and preventing their return, protects public safety.

Would that the ACLU be concerned about the civil liberties of the victims of alien criminals and terrorists.

Those who lose their lives to criminals and terrorists also lose their civil liberties.

The End of the World 
as We Know It.  
And I Feel Foul.
by Seton Motley, Contributing Author: We’ve said it many times before: Republican President Richard Nixon’s biggest mistake – was not Watergate.

Watergate is perhaps the most overrated political scandal in history. It was a third-rate burglary of some Democrat National Committee offices – in the midst of an election in which Nixon…would ultimately win forty-nine states.

What – would Nixon have only won forty-three states without the break-in?

The Democrats’ first vice presidential nominee had to be yanked from the ticket mid-campaign – because he had been repeatedly institutionalized for mental illness. This was not a juggernaut opposing slate.

The Watergate break-in – was utterly irrelevant to the election…and, actually, to our nation’s actual history.

No, Nixon’s biggest mistake – was opening the seething cauldron of snakes that is Communist China:

“U.S. President Richard Nixon’s 1972 visit to China (officially the People’s Republic of China or PRC) was an important strategic and diplomatic overture that marked the culmination of the Nixon administration’s resumption of harmonious relations between the United States and China.

“The seven-day official visit to three Chinese cities was the first time a U.S. president had visited the PRC; Nixon’s arrival in Beijing ended 25 years of no communication or diplomatic ties between the two countries and was the key step in normalizing relations between the U.S. and China.”

China has been ripping US off ever since. They were dead broke in 1972 – now they are challenging our global leadership all around the globe.

China got from there to here – by stealing tens of millions of our jobs…and trillions of dollars of our wealth and intellectual property.

Our massive money – that should have been rebuilding our crumbling cities and infrastructure – was instead building theirs.

The theory allegedly was: Trading with the ChiComms – would make them less ChiComm-y. Less totalitarian and murderous – more open and free.

I say allegedly: Because the globalist businessmen pitching that lie – almost certainly didn’t mean it. They just wanted to pay less for their manufacturing – which they could do in China.

Of course a half century of our trillions of dollars – has made China exponentially more ChiComm-y. Because they have trillions of extra dollars – with which to be exponentially more ChiComm-y:

“(W)hile the West has suffered from the financial crisis and the fallout after a failed attempt to implant democracy in the Middle East, China’s Communist Party has clung on to its monopoly of power.

“Its leaders behave as if China will never have to undergo the democratic transformation that every rich country has passed through on the way to prosperity. Instead they seem to believe that the party can keep control….”

As Communist forefather Vladimir Lenin said:

“The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.”

Forget just the rope: We’ve spent the last fifty years – paying to build in totality our own gallows.

More and more and more, China has been taking their extra ChiComm-iness – directly to US.

Nowhere is that more readily apparent – and likely more important – than their push to become the world’s Internet masters.

Digital China Goes Global:

“China is eclipsing the US and Europe in digital: Its value of mobile payments is 11 times greater than that of the US; mobile retail sales will nearly triple that of the US and EU-7 combined in 2018. Chinese digital giants’ market capitalizations have skyrocketed to levels approaching their US counterparts, equipping them with ample capital to compete on a global battlefield.”

Excellent news – all the way round. Because….

China’s Digital Dictatorship:

“Under its leader, Xi Jinping, the party looks from the outside to be stronger than at any time in decades. Since Tiananmen, stale apparatchiks have been replaced by bright technocrats….

“(T)he (Communist) party is still profoundly insecure. During the past few years it has felt the need to impose a fierce clampdown on dissidents and their lawyers. It is bullying activists in Hong Kong who challenge its authority and is terrorizing restless minorities.

“The party rightly worries that a society so lacking in trust is unstable. So it is experimenting with a striking remedy. It calls this a ‘social-credit system’….

“It says the idea is to harness digitally stored information to chivvy everyone into behaving more honestly….(T)he government also talks about this as a tool of ‘social management’: ie, controlling individuals’ behavior.

“This is a regime that already tries to police how often people visit their parents. How much further could it go?

“Citizens’ ratings are to be linked with their identity-card numbers. Many fear that bad scores might result in sanctions, such as being denied a bank loan or permission to buy a railway ticket, even for political reasons.

“They have reason to worry. The government decreed this year that the system should record such vaguely defined sins as ‘assembling to disrupt social order.’”

Well isn’t all of this…spectacular. To paraphrase the great Steve Hughes – pretending to quote the great George Orwell: “I told you people, didn’t I? I got the year wrong – but I frigging told you.”

China’s Scary Lesson to the World: Censoring the Internet Works

Are our Big Tech capitalists working to stop this? Heavens no. Most are doing their absolute best – to prove Lenin exactly correct. They aren’t even selling China the rope – they’re giving it to them for free.

Google Plans to Launch Censored Search Engine in China, Leaked Documents Reveal

Facebook Said to Create Censorship Tool to Get Back Into China

Apple Capitulates to Chinese Censorship

Rather than working to make China more like US – Big Tech is working to make US more like China.

Internet Censorship Just Took An Unprecedented Leap Forward, And Hardly Anyone Noticed

Thanks a ton, Big Tech.

On the Internet, the next great leap forward (SWIDT?) – is Fifth Generation (5G) wireless connectivity. Behold the Internet of Things:

“(T)he network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect, collect and exchange data.”

I rip off the late Stephen Hawking – and call it the Internet of Everything. Because everything will be connected. Your car – to the road – to the streetlight….

5G – makes the Internet of Everything possible.

And the way the world works is – the nation that gets first to 5G…gets to set the global 5G standards. For ALL this interconnectivity – and MASSIVE data collection.

And it’s a two nation race.

The 5G Race: China and US Battle to Control World’s Fastest Wireless Internet

If China wins, 1984 – is about to get really real. Not just in China – but all over the world.

We simply can not allow that to happen.

And must do everything we possibly can to ensure it doesn’t.

Thank God – the Donald Trump Administration gets all of this.

To Promote US Leadership on 5G, Officials Call for Government to Step Aside:

“The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a plan last week to streamline the deployment of 5G infrastructure like small cells and cap the fees that cities and other local governments can charge telecom companies to install that infrastructure.”

Hopefully, Congress will join with the Administration.

Thune, Schatz Introduce Bill to Streamline Small Cell Deployment

Because ultimately – all of this condenses to but one question:

Who Do You Want Setting Up The Next Internet? The United States – Or China?

That answer – should be really, REALLY easy.

Our Leaders' Favored Anarchy

by Paul Jacob, Contributing Author: “In a sane democracy,” I wrote this weekend at Townhall.com, “the side with the most violent nutcases loses.”

Too hopeful?

Independent video journalist Tim Pool made a similar point yesterday, covering Antifa versus Proud Boys fights in New York, as well as Antifa taking over the downtown streets of Portland, Oregon. He cautions those who defend themselves from going too far, for the media will simply make hay of violence against Antifa, ignoring Antifa provocations.

“Antifa are the ones who are showing up to marches that are peaceful and starting the violence — and then everyone complains there’s violence,” Mr. Pool explains.*

Reasonable question: who is encouraging leftist mobs?

Perhaps two former Obama Administration officials, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton.

“When they go low, we kick them,” Holder said last week. “That’s what the new Democratic Party is about.”

Mrs. Clinton insisted that “you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”

Michelle Obama provided a civilized correction: “Fear is not a proper motivator,” she said on the Today show. “Do you want them afraid of their neighbors? Do you want them angry? Do you want them vengeful?”

Journalist Sam Francis had a term for what seems to be on the rise: anarcho-tyranny. Government leaders let mob violence go unpunished, but crack down hard on peaceful citizens for infractions of onerous regulations.

In Portland, this weekend, the mayor applauded a police decision to stand down, letting Antifa take over the streets.

And so the violence ramps up.

As the President likes to say: “Not good.”

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

* “Well, if Antifa doesn’t show up,” Pool went on, “I assure you, the Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer will walk in a big circle and then break up and go find beers somewhere.”

Rape Survivor Just Won the Nobel Peace Prize. ‘Feminists’ Are Nowhere to Be Found.

Nadia Murad is a Yazidi human rights activist from
Iraq & author of the book "The Last Girl: My Story
of Captivity, & My Fight Against the Islamic State."
 
by Kelsey Harkness: As feminists were busy peddling their “War on Women” narrative in the U.S., Yazidi sex slave survivor Nadia Murad was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting a real War on Women in the Middle East.

Nadia was honored for her efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war, together with Dr. Denis Mukwege of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who has been a relentless healer and advocate for women.

Their stories serve as an important reminder that as American women debate what constitutes enough evidence to block a nominee from taking a seat on the Supreme Court, corroboration and evidence are abundant in places such as northern Iraq, where hundreds of women and girls are still enslaved and routinely subjected to rape.

Nadia was abducted in northern Iraq in August 2014, when ISIS took over her village. Militants gave the Yazidi people—a Kurdish and Arabic-speaking religious minority—two choices: Convert to Islam or die. Refusing to give in, Nadia watched men get massacred and family members march to their graves.

At just 21 years old, she was kidnapped alongside an estimated 3,000 other Yazidi women and girls, traded as sex slaves from one ISIS fighter to another. She was forced to pray, dress up, and apply makeup in preparation for her rape, which was often committed by gangs.
While any comparison between Nadia’s story and the accusations leveled against newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh would be completely unfair, it is fair to wonder how news of uncorroborated allegations of gang rape brought by porn lawyer Michael Avenatti can overshadow a gang rape survivor-turned-women’s advocate being honored with the most prestigious award in the world.

For years, it seemed the world didn’t care about Nadia’s story and the thousands of others like it. It took two years for then-Secretary of State John Kerry to declare crimes against Yazidis, Christians, and Shiite Muslims genocide, and the United Nations as well.

Thousands of Yazidis remain missing, including at least 1,300 women and children, and the question of how to hold ISIS accountable for its unspeakable crimes remains unanswered.

Nadia is a lonely voice in the fight against ISIS genocide. After making the genocide designation, the Obama administration did little to hold ISIS accountable for its crimes or to alleviate the suffering of survivors. The Trump administration is trying to right those wrongs by providing aid to the most vulnerable victims of ISIS genocide, but a lot of work remains to be done.

“The world should bear its moral and legal responsibility and ensure its proper and fair accountability,” Nadia said as she accepted her Nobel Peace Prize. “The sexual violence and conflicts in our towns and cities must be stopped.”

— AFP news agency (@AFP) October 9, 2018
t’s strange how women who self-identify as feminists get so worked up over unsubstantiated allegations of sexual assault, yet so callously overlook human rights injustices staring them in the face.

Imagine the difference these “feminists” could make if, in addition to banging on the doors of the U.S. Supreme Court, they also took a few minutes to bang at the doors of the United Nations.

In the #MeToo era, feminists are rightly concerned about women being heard. It appears that Nadia’s with them, too.

“My hope is that all women who speak about their stories of sexual violence are heard and accepted, that their voices are heard so they feel safe,” she said.

But Nadia’s story is falling on deaf ears. Because being “heard” requires others to listen.

Listening to a Nobel Peace Prize winner whose mission is to bring back life after being destroyed by sexual violence and war is the least feminists can do as the freest and most liberated women in the world.

Sure, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. There’s certainly no shortage of issues to debate. But it’s our job as feminists to look beyond ourselves and realize that Nadia’s fight is our fight, no matter what’s happening here in the U.S.

Democrat Leader Forced to Resign For Taking a Knee to Pray and Standing for Flag

by Todd Starnes: The new chairman of the Allegheny County Democratic Party in Pennsylvania was forced to resign over a social media post that declared, “ I stand for the flag, kneel at the cross.”

“I’m not ashamed of my patriotism, not one bit,” Marine veteran Mark Salvas told television station KDKA. “I fought for this country. I think I have a right to have a voice and be patriotic.”

“We have a zero tolerance for sexual harassment or racism of any kind,” state Democratic Committee Chairwoman Nancy Mills told the Tribune newspaper. “I think Chairwoman (Eileen) Kelly made the right decision once she was aware of the issues.”

Salvas said he believes football players have a right to protest, but he refuses to apologize for his personal stance on the national anthem.

“I stand for the flag, I kneel for the cross,” he declared.

“No apologies,” the reporter asked.

“Not at all. Not at all,” the former Democrat leader replied.

Salvas said party leaders were also upset over an item his wife posted showing support for a police officer accused of killing an African-American. Salvas said they had known the police officer and his family since the officer was a toddler.

“The have been there for us in hard times, and my wife and I felt it was necessary to be there for them because family backs family,” he told the television station.

Rep. Ed Gainey (D-PA) accused Salvas of offending African American voters.

“To put that up on Facebook was, to me, insensitive, also to African Americans, who, as you know, have backed the Democratic Party for quite a long time, and everybody knows that it was insensitive,” Gainey told KDKA. “If you’re going to be executive director of the Democratic Party, you have to be sensitive to things like that.”

In spite of what happened, Salvas said he believes the Democrats are a big tent party.

“There’s a place for all of us and all of our views,” he said.

Unless, you are a member of law enforcement or you happen to stand for the national anthem and take a knee to pray.

Ten Years After the Last Meltdown: Is Another One Around the Corner?

Dr. Ron Paul
by Dr. Ron Paul: September marked a decade since the bursting of the housing bubble, which was followed by the stock market meltdown and the government bailout of the big banks and Wall Street. Last week’s frantic stock market sell-off indicates the failure to learn the lesson of 2008 makes another meltdown inevitable.

In 2001-2002 the Federal Reserve responded to the economic downturn caused by the bursting of the technology bubble by pumping money into the economy. This new money ended up in the housing market. This was because the so-called conservative Bush administration, like the “liberal” Clinton administration before it, was using the Community Reinvestment Act and government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make mortgages available to anyone who wanted one — regardless of income or credit history.

Banks and other lenders eagerly embraced this “ownership society”’ agenda with a “lend first, ask questions when foreclosing” policy. The result was the growth of subprime mortgages, the rush to invest in housing, and millions of Americans finding themselves in homes they could not afford.

When the housing bubble burst, the government should have let the downturn run its course in order to correct the malinvestments made during the phony, Fed-created boom. This may have caused some short-term pain, but it would have ensured the recovery would be based on a solid foundation rather than a bubble of fiat currency.

Of course Congress did exactly the opposite, bailing out Wall Street and the big banks. The Federal Reserve cut interest rates to historic lows and embarked on a desperate attempt to inflate the economy via QE 1, 2, and 3.

Low interest rates and quantitative easing have left the Fed with a dilemma. In order to avoid a return to 1970s-era inflation — or worse, it must raise interest rates and draw down its balance sheet. However, raising rates too much risks popping what financial writer Graham Summers calls the “everything bubble.”

Today credit card debt is over a trillion dollars, student loan debt is at 1.5 trillion dollars, there is a bubble in auto loans, and there is even a new housing bubble. But the biggest part of the everything bubble is the government bubble. Federal debt is over 21 trillion dollars and expanding by tens of thousands of dollars per second.

The Fed is unlikely to significantly raise interest rates because doing so would cause large increases in federal government debt interest payments. Instead, the Fed will continue making small Increases while moving slowly to unwind its balance sheet, hoping to gradually return to a “normal” monetary policy without bursting the “everything bubble.”

The Fed will be unsuccessful in keeping the everything bubble from exploding. When the bubble bursts, America will experience an economic crisis much greater than the 2008 meltdown or the Great Depression.

This crisis is rooted in the failure to learn the lessons of 2008 and of every other recession since the Fed’s creation: A secretive central bank should not be allowed to manipulate interest rates and distort economic signals regarding market conditions. Such action leads to malinvestment and an explosion of individual, business, and government debt. This may cause a temporary boom, but the boom soon will be followed by a bust. The only way this cycle can be broken without a major crisis is for Congress both to restore people’s right to use the currency of their choice and to audit and then end the Fed.

Time Running Out For Blue Water Navy Vietnam Vets, Give Them A Vote

by Robert Romano: S. 422, “The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2018,” would extend the presumption of exposure to Agent Orange to Navy veterans who served aboard ships off the shore of Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

My father, Anthony, was a boatswain’s mate on the U.S.S. Coral Sea from 1966 to 1968. Recently, he learned that his illnesses could be linked to exposure. He has had two heart attacks (he had his first heart attack when he was 30), recently had a lung removed because of cancer and suffers from diabetes, all without any prior family history.

The veterans advocate he spoke to told him he had a trifecta of illnesses that have been linked to exposure and that if he had set foot on Vietnamese soil just once he most certainly would have qualified for the benefits that are currently extended to land-based military personnel who also are presumed to have been exposed under “The Agent Orange Act of 1991,” which passed both chambers unanimously.

A 2009 federal court ruling upheld the VA’s interpretation of the statute that service members had to have physically been on the land mass in order to qualify for the benefit, although Congress had made no such stipulation.

In addition to the new Senate bill, identical legislation passed the House unanimously 382 to 0 on June 25. The Senate version currently has 52 cosponsors. If it came up for a vote today it would pass.

Whether the reason for my father’s illnesses can be definitively tied to Agent Orange exposure we will never know for certain but here’s what he does know. The House has unanimously told him he was exposed and he deserves the benefit. A majority of the Senate has gone on the record to tell him he was exposed and that he deserves the benefit.

Consider the gravity of what these Navy veterans are being told, especially ones who happen to be sick. Even if I could produce scientific studies for my father to consider — I cannot — that showed he was never exposed, because a majority of both chambers of Congress have gone on the record to say that he was, he will probably never believe any differently.

So far, Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie has come out opposing the bill, seemingly stopping it dead in its tracks. My parents had real hope up until that point that the legislation was on its way to passage but suddenly it was very much in doubt. Wilkie wants to wait for another study to be done first — 43 years after the war ended — just so it can produce the same inconclusive result.

The reason land-based personnel from Vietnam under current law are presumed to have been exposed is because there is no way to prove one way or another that they were exposed and that the use of herbicides was the cause of their illnesses. If they have a qualifying illness, they simply get treatment under the benefit. No study could ever prove each individual case. The reason the 1991 legislation passed was because if those veterans might have been exposed, and they got sick, Congress wanted to take care of them.

The sad truth is, my father will likely die believing that the government exposed him to toxic chemicals, then it came out and agreed that it was at fault but sadly refused to do a thing about it.

It is unbelievably cruel for politicians to toy with veterans in this way. It’s sick. I don’t know if this is how he got ill or not — I’ll never know for sure — but the fact remains that my father now believes that to be the case. He would have been better off if this bill had never been introduced or at least if he had never visited with the veterans advocate and found out about it.

About 400 Vietnam veterans are dying every day as the Baby Boomers age. My dad just turned 72 years old last week. Do members of Congress facing reelection this November really want these sick Navy veterans to die believing — and their widows — that the government heard their call only to abandon them?

The bottom line is that it is cruel to tell veterans like my dad that they got sick because of their service and then leave it unresolved. President Donald Trump and VA Secretary Wilkie should carefully reconsider the administration’s position on this heart-wrenching issue.

The least the Senate could do is let this come up for a vote. A majority of the Senate supports the bill, and so Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) can let the bill go to the floor. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could bring it up for a vote before the election or afterward. And then if senators wish to go to the floor in opposition, they can cite whatever scientific studies they wish — but let it go to a vote.

At a hearing in September, Isakson said the “issue of dealing with Blue Water Navy is no longer going to be a question. How we do it is going to be the question.”

Veterans Day is coming up next month, and it is my hope that the Senate will not let my father down. The fact is, S.422 is there right now for the Senate to act on, and time is running out for these veterans. Let’s give the Blue Water Navy veterans who served in Vietnam resolution one way or another. Up or down, win or lose, just give them a vote.

Democrats Use Hitler's Propaganda Technique

Lloyd Marcus
by Lloyd Marcus: Folks, I guess I should let this go. But it still blows my mind that the American left is committed to branding Brett Kavanaugh, without a shred of evidence, a sexual predator for the rest of his life. That is incredibly, cold, calculating and evil.

Adolf Hitler said, "If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed." This propaganda technique has been embraced by the Democratic Party. Here are three huge lies Democrats continue to invest billions' worth of media in to deceive the public. Big lie number one: America's cops are racist and routinely murder blacks. Big lie number two: Trump colluded with Russia to steal the presidency from Hillary. Big lie number three: Brett Kavanaugh is a serial rapist.

Let's address Democrats' big lie that cops kill blacks for being black. Harvard professor Roland Fryer analyzed over 1,000 officer-involved shootings across the country. Fryer concluded that there is zero evidence of racial bias in police shootings. Inner-city black communities are plagued by criminals, not police.

In 2014, over 6,000 blacks were murdered, more than all white and Hispanic homicide victims combined. These blacks were not killed by whites or cops. They were killed by other blacks.

Researching "deadly force," a study by Washington University's Lois James revealed that police are less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed whites and Hispanics in similar threat scenarios. Federal crime stats show that 12% of whites and Hispanics who die by homicide are killed by cops. Only 4% of black homicide victims are killed by cops.

There is no government agency dedicated to protecting black lives more than the police. Proactive policing in the mid-1990s had a huge impact, bringing down the inner-city murder rate and saving tens of thousands of black lives. Democrats and leftists spread their lie that cops are racist, which caused cops to back off. This resulted in violent crime back on the rise and black lives lost. In cities with large black populations, homicides in 2015 rose from 54% to 90%.

Immorally, Democrats, fake news media, and Hollywood are still promoting the lie that black criminal Michael Brown was gunned down by a racist white cop while trying to surrender with his hands up. Blood in the officer's police car proved that Brown was shot while assaulting the police officer inside his car.

Leftists branding cops racist is a selfish, evil scheme to keep blacks falsely believing they are victims in a forever racist America. Leftists' message to blacks is that voting for Democrats is blacks' only hope of keeping racist white America at bay. A despicable Democrat get-out-the-vote campaign told black parents they had better vote or send their elementary students to school wearing bulletproof vests to protect them from racist white police.

Black Lives Matter thugs, funded by George Soros and anti-America groups, continue to ambush and assassinate innocent police officers around the country because of Democrats' lie that cops kill blacks because they are black.

Democrats' big lie that Trump stole the presidential election via collusion with Russia. After two years of investigations, there is zero evidence supportive of this absurd Democrat lie. Democrats presented their lie in such a way as to make voters believe that Russia tampered with the counting of votes, which is impossible. Fake news media, Democrats, and Hollywood continued to promote their Trump-Russia-collusion lie 24/7 for the past two years, believing that American voters will come to believe it – making Trump's presidency illegitimate.

Democrats' big lie that conservative Brett Kavanaugh is a sexual predator/serial rapist. This huge lie pulled out of thin air by Democrats is particularly heinous and cruel. Throughout his 30-something-year career, Kavanaugh passed seven FBI background checks with flying colors. Dr. Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago, does not remember the date, the place, or other crucial facts regarding her allegation.

Yet Democrats, fake news media, and Hollywood have decreed Kavanaugh guilty simply because this woman said so. Daily piling onto their outrageous allegations, Democrats sought to block Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court by branding him a drunk who experienced frequent blackouts in which he participated in group rapes. But get this, folks: while these allegations against Kavanaugh are obviously false, Democrats will promote their "Kavanaugh is a sexual predator/serial rapist" lie for the rest of his life. How truly sick is that?

It bears repeating that leftists use liberal activist justices on the Supreme Court to force laws on voters against their will. Kavanaugh on the court will give conservatives a five to four majority. This is why leftists seek to destroy Kavanaugh, his wife, and his two daughters at any and all cost.

The midterm elections are only weeks away. Clearly, Democrats' big lies prove they are willing to sacrifice decency, morality, and human lives in their depraved quest to win and maintain political power. Decent right-thinking Americans cannot possibly want Democrats in control of the people's House and Senate. The Democratic Party has become the home of the ultra-left and demonically evil. It must be defeated. My fellow Americans, please vote Republican in the swiftly approaching mid-terms.
