The Black Lives That Don't Matter To The Left

First he exposed the History Channel’s miniseries “Roots” as root-and-brunch fiction. Now, the courageous epistolary warrior Kunta (Jack) Kerwick has turned his attention to correcting lies about slavery, promulgated in media and scholarly circles.
A point forcefully made by Kerwick is that although a vibrant, indigenous slave trade was conducted well into the nineteenth century in the interior of West Africa, slavery has become the White Man’s cross to bear.
Also omitted, in the course of the “honest” conversation about race directed by our political masters, is that credit for the demise of the slave trade in Africa belongs to Europeans. In his compact study, The Slave Trade, British historian Jeremy Black (London, 2006), highlights the “leading role Britain played in the abolition of slavery [as]… an example of an ethical foreign policy.” Britain agonized over this repugnant institution, failed to reconcile it with the Christian faith, and consequently abolished it.

UN Backs Secret Obama Takeover of Police ^ | 08/04/2016 | Robert Romano 

The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice has provided oversight and recommendations for improvement of police services in a number of cities with consent decrees. This is one of the most effective ways to reduce discrimination in law enforcement and it needs to be beefed up and increased to cover as many of the 18,000-plus local law enforcement jurisdictions.”
That was United Nations Rapporteur Maina Kai on July 27, a representative of the U.N. Human Rights Council, who on the tail-end of touring the U.S., endorsed a little-known and yet highly controversial practice by the Justice Department to effect a federal takeover of local police and corrections departments.
The consent decrees are already being implemented in Newark, New Jersey; Miami, Florida; Los Angeles, California; Ferguson, Missouri; Chicago, Illinois; and other municipalities.

Republicans Consider Next Steps After News of Obama Administration Cash Transfer to Iran

The Daily Signal ^ | August 03, 2016 | Josh Siegel 

Republicans in Congress are criticizing President Barack Obama’s administration for its approval of a $400 million delivery of cash to Iran on the same day the country released four American prisoners and formally implemented the nuclear deal.

Though the administration says the timing of the $400 million money transfer was coincidental, and part of a resolution of a failed arms deal between the two countries that dates to the Iranian revolution, critics say that a link between the payment and the prisoner exchange is undeniable.

“The claim that the timing is coincidental is beyond unbelievable,” said Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., an outspoken critic of U.S. policy toward Iran. “It is clear at this point that one of two possibilities apply to this administration: either the president has absolutely no idea what he is doing or the president knows exactly what he is doing and is playing for some other team.”

While US media continues to hammer Trump for what 'uncited sources' are saying, European media notes that the commander of U.S. European Command said allied nations must pay their fair share of defense costs to deter Russia in comments that support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's tough talk on NATO.

Clinton VP Pick Tim Kaine’s Islamist Ties Revealed

The Jewish Voice of New York ^ | August 3, 2016 | Ryan Mauro 

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s newly-announced running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, has a history of embracing Islamists. He appointed a Hamas supporter to a state immigration commission; spoke at a dinner honoring a Muslim Brotherhood terror suspect; and received donations from well-known Islamist groups.
Appointing a Muslim Brotherhood Front Leader Who Supports Hamas
In 2007, Kaine was the Governor of Virginia and, of all people, chose Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish to the state’s Immigration Commission. A Muslim organization against Islamism criticized the appointment and reckless lack of vetting.
Federal prosecutors said in a 2008 court filing that MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” A Chicago Tribune investigation in 2004 confirmed it, as well as MAS’ crafty use of deceptive semantics to appear moderate. Convicted terrorist and admitted U.S. Muslim Brotherhood member Abdurrahman Alamouditestified in 2012, “Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.”
According to Omeish’s website, he was also President of the National Muslim Students Association and served for two years on the national board of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which the Justice Department also labeled as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-financing trial.
His website says he was Vice President of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, a radical mosque known for its history of terror ties including having future Al-Qaeda operative Anwar Al-Awlaki as its imam and being frequented by two of the 9/11 hijackers and the perpetrator of the Fort Hood shooting. Omeish’s website says he remains a board member.
It says he was chairman of the board of Islamic American University, which had Hamas financier and Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef Al-Qaradawi as chairman of its board until at least 2006. Omeish was also chairman of the board for the Islamic Center of Passaic County, a New Jersey mosque with heavy terrorist ties and an imam that the Department of Homeland Security wants to deport for having links to Hamas.
Omeish directly expressed extremism before Kaine appointed him. He claimed the Brotherhood is “moderate” and admitted that he and MAS are influenced by the Islamist movement. In 2004, Omeish praised the Hamas spiritual leader as “our beloved Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.” Videotape from 2000 also surfaced where Omeish pledged to help Palestinians who understand “the jihad way is the way to liberate your land” (he denied this was an endorsement of violence).
When a state delegate wrote a letter to then-Governor Kaine warning him that the MAS has “questionable origins,” a Kaine spokesperson said the charge was bigotry.
Kaine obviously failed to do any kind of basic background checking in Omeish.
Omeish resigned under heavy pressure and Kaine acknowledged that his statements “concerned” him. But, apparently, they didn’t concern him enough to actually learn about the Muslim Brotherhood network in his state and to take greater precautions in the future.
Speaking at a Dinner Honoring Muslim Brotherhood Terror Suspect
In September 2011, Kaine spoke at a “Candidates Night” dinner organized by the New Dominion PAC that presented a Lifetime Achievement Award for Jamal Barzinji, who the Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch describes as a “founding father of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”
He first came on to the FBI’s radar in 1987-1988 when an informant inside the Brotherhood identified Barzinji and his associated groups as being part of a network of Brotherhood fronts to “institute the Islamic Revolution in the United States.” The source said Barzinji and his colleagues were “organizing political support which involves influencing both public opinion in the United States as well as the United States Government” using “political action front groups with no traceable ties.”
Barzinji had his home searched as part of a terrorism investigation in 2003. U.S. Customs Service Senior Special Agent David Kane said in a sworn affidavit that Barzinji and the network of entities he led were investigated because he “is not only closed associated with PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad]…but also with Hamas.” Counter-terrorism reporter Patrick Poole broke the story that Barzinji was nearly prosecuted but the Obama Justice Department dropped plans for indictment.
Barzinji played a major role in nearly every Brotherhood front in the U.S. and was vice president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, which came under terrorism investigation also. Barzinji’s group was so close to Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative Sami Al-Arian that IIIT’s President considered his group and Al-Arian’s to be essentially one entity.
The indictment of Al-Arian and his colleagues says that they “would and did seek to obtain support from influential individuals, in the United States under the guise of promoting and protecting Arab rights.”
The quotes about Brotherhood operative Barzinji’s aspirations to use civil rights advocacy as a means to influence politicians are especially relevant when you consider that video from the event honoring Barzinji shows Kaine saying that it was his fourth time at the annual dinner and thanked his “friends” that organized it for helping him in his campaign for Lieutenant-Governor and Governor and asked them to help his Senate campaign.

Trump Trumps the Liberals’ Fake Outrage Clichés ^ | August 4, 2016 | Kurt Schlichter 

At least there is one good thing that will come out of this miserable 2016 election cycle, and that's the death of the fake outrage gambit deployed over and over again against GOP candidates by Democrats and their mainstream media gimp platoon. Where Mitt Romney was bound in knots over binders full of women, Donald Trump blissfully plows ahead toward Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit’s final humiliation in November, immune to the weaselly whining and wailing over shamelessly distorted statements that purport to show how he’s racist, sexist, Islamophobic, homophobic, climate phobic, and just plain mean.
You know, for a conservative there's not much to like about Trump, but there are two things to love. The first is that he's not Hillary Clinton. The second is that he just doesn't care what liberals say.
Hillary's hero, Saul Alinsky, recommended hoisting leftists’ opponents on their own petards by making them live up to their own moral standards. And that's what they do, trying to exploit our decency and morality to gain an edge. But we fooled them – we nominated a guy without decency or morality.
We see their hypocrisy, and we reject it. The party of Jane Fonda shouts “Babykiller!” at our returning vets, but for four days every four years it carts out some compliant loser general, one of the statistically outlying liberal vets, or someone who is vet-affiliated, and tries to pretend that their scuzzy party doesn't hold all of us who served in uniform in utter contempt. And when we push back on these people who volunteered to inject themselves into the political process to smear us, the Democrats pretend to react in horror: “How dare you attack a vet!”
Give me a break.
Hey wait, I’m a vet. Can I get in on this sweet, sweet unaccountability too?
Isn’t that how it works?
Oh wait, I don’t back a pinko libfascist who treats the Bill of Rights like Charmin, so my vethood is irrelevant. Please, by all means continue trashing the families of the guys who Hillary got killed in Benghazi and then lied to beside their caskets.
And do you think anyone outside our little circle of political junkies cares one iota that Trump said something nasty regarding the Hillary partisans who tried to leverage their gold star status to help her while assuming that Trump would never dare respond to their unfair attacks upon him? To the extent anyone was even paying attention to this nonsense, the latest in the never-ending series of “Hey, maybe we’ve got Trump this time!” gotchas, most people are probably wondering why the family was dissing Trump to help the woman who voted for the war where their son gave his life.
Criticize a Hillary-suckling general who was sending flirtatious emails while failing to achieve victory? Meh. No one believes Trump hates our troops. Hell, they’re asking themselves why the Obama/Clinton cartel can’t seem to beat the JV team.
No one outside our insular political world cares anymore about this transparent baloney. No one normal cares anymore if you gin up some bogus gaffe to help you lie about Republicans, and it's driving the Democrats nuts. They want us to be ashamed and disheartened. Instead, except for the usual suspects, it’s “Repudiate Trump? How about you libs repudiate this?”
The thing is, I'm not voting for Donald Trump to be my pal. I'm voting for him not to be Hillary. I’m going to vote for the imperfect vessel instead of the overflowing chamber pot.
I don't care if Trump's mean. I don't care if he scandalizes the tender sensitivities of the fey and the fainthearted. I don't care if he sacrifices golden retriever puppies to Baal by moonlight on an altar on the rooftop of his tacky Manhattan high-rise.
I don't care if Trump's a bad person because I know that Hillary Clinton is a worse person, and that she would be unrestrained in power and pose a significant chance of plunging this country into violence. Compared to what that malignant Chavez wanna-be has in mind, electing the jerk seems the best way to avoid the kind of civil conflict that would give the fussy Trump foes something to really sob about.
And if you think that makes me “despicable” or lack “honor” or whatever else you want to offer to try to shame me into smoothing the way for Hillary’s coronation, well, I got something that you can repudiate.
The problem with Republicans is that for too long our elite cared what liberals said. “Oh no! They called us sexist! They called us racist!” It’s like at some level they wondered, “Could it be true? Could Mitt Romney actually be the moral equivalent of David Duke? I mean, Democrats certainly wouldn’t imply that with absolutely no basis in fact.” But not Trump and his voters. They see the lies and give precisely zero damns.
The libs called W Chimpy McBu$hiltlerburton and he took it. McCain felt morally obligated to nod along as they flayed him – hell, just this week he pivoted back to his classic Maverick Blue Falcon mode with his pompous pseudo-outrage at Trump for refusing to bend over, thank the libs, and ask, “May I have another?”
Even Romney refused to go bareknuckle with that lying sack of president of ours. So it’s kind of refreshing when Trump wears the lies and faux outrage of his enemies as proudly as a Latin American generalissimo wears his medals.
Their scam no longer works. The voters just don’t care. The voters have heard it all before. Hillary dropped $50 million in ads calling Trump the antichrist and America yawned. So she says the Republican is every –ist and –phobic there is? What else is new? If you’re always saying that it’s apocalypse now, when the apocalypse really comes, how will you know?
And since the faux outrage is all they have, now that that ploy has flopped they are in trouble. The polls are bouncing around, but they’ll bounce back up. Trump and Hillary are effectively tied despite Trump having no ad presence and no organization. What’s most important, it turns out, is that he has no apologies.
The voters are done with this hypocritical crap. We’re not voting for Trump to be our buddy. We’re voting for him to deny insider elitist libfascist Hillary the presidency until a conservative can come along who has the ability to connect with normal voters and the stones to fight. We've seen their lies and we just don't care anymore. Our next candidate better understand that the game has changed and that we’re playing by the Dems’ rules now. If he or she does, then maybe this crummy year won’t be a total loss.
