Even Ultraliberal California Can’t Stand Antifa’s Antics Any Longer


The radical left has turned into an extreme manifestation of neo-fascism in recent months, and a growing number of Americans are fed up about it.

In the wake of Donald Trump electoral evisceration of Hillary Clinton in 2016, democrats and their progressive cohorts threw a temper tantrum the likes of which had never before been seen in American politics.  Their “inevitable” President Clinton was never going to be a reality, thanks to her overwhelming and undeniable criminality, and this had enraged the liberal masses.

They turned their anger not on the DNC, who so foolishly colluded with Clinton to oust challenger Bernie Sanders, but rather at their fellow countrymen.  Now, supporters of President Trump became the enemy, no matter the common thread of U.S. citizenship shared between the warring factions.

This gave rise to the “resistance”; a loose knit idea that all democrats, leftists, and liberals would be opposed to Donald Trump’s actions in every possible scenario, no matter the context.  It was a silly, unAmerican idea, but that’s what the left does best.

When the nation began to laugh in the faces of these “resistance” hi jinx, a number of liberal lunatics decided that it was time to up the ante on their dissent against the President, employing violence and censorship to accomplish their goal of nullifying the beliefs of over half of the nation.  The “resistance” became “antifa”, and protests turned to riots.

Now, as Antifa continues to reign terror down upon the nation, a great many Americans are looking to classify the organization as a hate group, a domestic terror cabal, or a street gang.  Their antics have grown so frustratingly unacceptable that even the liberal stronghold of California is showing signs of fatigue when it comes to these hooligans.

“Not long after dozens of black-hooded protesters were filmed pummeling people on his city’s streets, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin made clear his disgust for the self-stylized vigilantes.

“’Antifa,’ he said, is no different than a street gang, and police should start treating protesters in the anti-fascist movement accordingly.

“Later that day, legislators in Sacramento advanced resolutions that would treat violent acts committed by antifa movement’s enemies — white nationalists and neo-Nazis — as terrorist acts under state law.

“As forces on the extremes of the nation’s ever-widening political divide continue to battle with fists and weapons on the streets of California, law enforcement officials and politicians have started debating whether these extremist groups should be classified as street gangs.

“Law enforcement experts say the groups that have been warring in the Bay Area for months — which include anti-fascists and those using ‘black bloc’ militant tactics, far-right organizations such as the Proud Boys and the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights, and white nationalist groups such as Identity Evropa — certainly share similarities with a street gang.

“’It is gang behavior with some ideology. But it is also a social entity as well as a political one,’ said Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.”

Antifa’s name is also a matter of deceit.

While the group’s moniker is a shortened version of “anti-fascist”, they are anything but.  By employing violence to censor and vilify the conservative political viewpoints that most Americans maintain, the group itself has entirely embraced literal fascism.  Their horrific actions are often softened by the mainstream media to allow for their preposterous “antifa” callsign to stick, but we must make no mistake about their true, discriminatory intentions.

Former Trump immigration advisor tells harsh truth about DACA Former Trump immigration advisor tells harsh truth about DACA

President Donald Trump is expected to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, better known as DACA, this coming Tuesday. Although liberals are up in arms about the impending doom of one of former president Barack Obama’s flagship accomplishments, a former Trump immigration advisor has a strong take about why the program should end.

One of the key terms a person must meet in order to be DACA eligible is that he or she must not have committed any serious crimes. Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, said there are loopholes and limitations that still allow criminals to receive DACA amnesty.

“What happens is a lot of gangbangers get arrested, but the state won’t have the resources to prosecute them all, so they’re released,” Kobach said on MSNBC on Friday. “It used to be before DACA that the county sheriffs would release them to ICE in hopes that they would deport them. But we have many cases of such individuals who are getting the DACA amnesty.”

Kobach is seeking to dispel the notion held by many DACA supporters that those in the DACA program automatically represent a “higher class” of person. Rather, he said, there are people from both ends of the spectrum.

“We shouldn’t have any illusion here,” Kobach continued. “DACA is a cross section of the illegal alien population. There are criminals and there are scholars, but it’s not an especially high achieving cross section of the population.”

MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle took issue with Kobach’s characterization of people not convicted in a court of law as criminals.

Kobach is clearly understanding of the principle that a person is innocent until proven guilty, but his point is that there are illegal immigrants who are not going through the entire legal process because law enforcement agencies are forced to make a resource-based decision on who to prosecute and who to release. Basically, he’s saying that just because a person didn’t get convicted, doesn’t mean they didn’t commit the crime.

There is some nuance to the issue of DACA immigrants, and that is being acknowledged by some Republicans. Florida Governor Rick Scott, for example, supports amnesty for “Dreamers,” those who were brought to the U.S. as children, but he wants that to come from Congress, not an executive order like Obama used. He still insists he is strongly opposed to illegal immigration, but he does not want to punish children for what their parents did.

Kobach is known for his tough immigration stances, and made news for accidentally revealing parts of his strategic plan for the Department of Homeland Security during a photo op with then-president-elect Trump.


Trump Decision on Federal Lands Could Curtail Obama- and Bush-Era Land Grab Abuse

The ongoing controversy about the federal government’s role in managing land may soon come to a head.

Earlier this month, in accord with a presidential executive order issued in April, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke delivered recommendations to the president on national monument lands that are being reviewed by his department.

Details about the report—whether lands should be reduced, and if so, which ones—are expected from the White House in the coming days.

The highly anticipated report has stirred a great deal of angst this summer, particularly among environmental activists who are convinced the Interior’s review is an unprecedented ploy to sell off or sully federal lands.

For example, luxury outdoor retailer Patagonia argued the following in its first ever television ad: “Public lands have never been more threatened than right now because you have a few self-serving politicians who want to sell them off and make money.”

Beautiful scenes of the Grand Tetons, Yosemite, and Zion pan across the screen as the company urges viewers to defend these lands and hold Zinke accountable.

The Patagonia commercial and much of the conversation this summer have been muddled with hyperbole and misinformation. It’s worth taking a step back to understand the issue.

Who’s Involved

In April, President Donald Trump requested that Zinke review all presidential national monument designations or expansions since 1996. In particular, Trump requested review of designations of areas over 100,000 acres and/or those that were “made without adequate public outreach and coordination” to determine if revisions were necessary.

Other presidents have reviewed and altered national monuments—among them Presidents William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman, and Ike Eisenhower.


The subject of Interior’s report is presidential use of the Antiquities Act of 1906. The law allows presidents to unilaterally designate federal lands as “historic landmarks, historic and prehistoric structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest.” These designations change how land is managed and who has access to it.

Trump is considering the need to reduce the size of, or altogether eliminate, some of these monuments.

Contrary to what the Patagonia commercial and many others would imply, reducing the size of a national monument or even rescinding its status does not open up the federal land to be overrun by oil interests or clear cut by the foresting industry.

Federal lands are managed by a web of laws determining who can do what and when. For example, at least nine other laws also address artifact preservation on federal lands.

The Lands in Question

Perhaps where environmental groups most mislead the public is in explaining which lands are being reviewed. National monuments are distinct from other land designations like national parks, which are created by Congress.

Zinke’s review covered 27 national monuments, mostly in the western United States, though some are located in New England and in offshore federal waters. In other words, this debate has nothing to do with the Grand Tetons, Yosemite, or Zion—all of which are national parks.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that the federal government owns hundreds of millions of acres in America. To put that in perspective, that’s about the same size as all of Western Europe. (See Congress’ official map of federal lands below.)

Why Trump’s Upcoming Decision Matters

The reason this 110-year-old law has become so contentious is complicated.

In part, it has to do with past presidents abusing the purpose of the law. The Antiquities Act directs the president to protect artifacts on federal lands according to the “smallest area compatible with proper care and management of the objects to be protected.”

However, in recent history the Antiquities Act has instead been used to pull vast swathes of land out of use.

President Barack Obama in particular used this power aggressively. The Sutherland Institute reports that 66 percent of all national monument acreage was designated so under the Obama administration, and 25 percent under President George W. Bush.

It also has to do with ensuring quality management of lands. It is no secret that the Department of Interior is facing $15.4 billion in maintenance backlogs, and $11.9 billion of that is in the National Park Service alone.

Holly Fretwell of the Property and Environment Research Center reports that “[o]nly 40 percent of park historic structures are considered to be in “good” or better condition and they need continual maintenance to remain that way.”

The “why” also has to do with who should get the most say in decision-making.

The Patagonia ad encourages people to oppose changes to national monuments because “this [land] belongs to all the people in America—it’s our heritage.” But this glosses over decades and generations’ worth of contentious debate about who “our” refers to.

Does it refer to fly fishermen, hunters, hikers, and bikers as Patagonia would have its customers believe? Does it refer to the Native Americans and locals who are directly impacted by federal land management decisions, but who have little say in the matter?

Are American natural resource industries to be excluded from the collective “our”?

If Congress doesn’t like what the Trump administration is doing, it ought to act to clarify the law. Zinke rightly noted that “the executive power under the Act is not a substitute for a lack of congressional action on protective land designations.”

At the very least, Congress ought to amend the law to give states more say in the matter.

Land management decision-making has been contentious for decades. Shifting more control from Washington to those with direct knowledge of the land in question and a clear stake in the outcome of decisions would be a step in the right direction.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Cries in Front of Reporters as She Reveals What’s on Trump’s Desk


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter to his son while the soldier was serving in Iraq to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

That was beautiful. It’s no wonder Sanders grew emotional.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders herself said afterward.

She was right. Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about the moving letter written by Joseph to his son 10 years ago.


Trump administration to disband another group! This one will make liberal’s heads explode!

The Trump administration has decised to disband a federal advisory committee on climate change, according to a report Sunday.

The charter for the 15-person Advisory Committee for the Sustained National Climate Assessment expires Sunday.

The panel includes academics, local officials and corporate representatives.

Ben Friedman, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s acting administrator, told the committee’s chair that the agency would not renew the committee, the Washington Post first reported.




President Trump Fires All 14 Muslim Federal Judges

Barack Obama managed to pack the federal judiciary with bleeding heart liberals, professional lobbyists for climat and 15 Moslems, none of whom were born in this country. President Trump had no choice but to äre one of them last month when he ruled that Sharia Law was OK if the defendant is Moslem and reasonably expected to follow his faith or face eternity in hell.You can force a Christian to pay for birth control for indigents and gutter rats but you can’t ask a Moslem not to beat his wife? Sounds about right.Today, President Trump very quietly ended the tenure of the Moslem 14 — as they have named their little group of Allah worshippers — with an executive order eliminating their benches  altogether.White House Propaganda Director Emmanuel Goldstein told Fox News: President Trump doesn’t have the authority to remove a federal judge appointed and conärmed by the Senate, buthe does have the authority to determine the number of benches in the judiciary per the Evacuation Clause. He reduced that number today by 14.Brilliant. That’s why we voted for President trump and why we’ll vote for him again. He’s waaaaaaay smarter than we are. We’ll keep you updated on the fate of these Moslems.pls like and share this post on facebook and twiter


Despite facing a lawsuit from the city of Chicago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made it clear on Wednesday that the federal government would not back down from its threat to withhold grants from cities that do not comply with immigration authorities. In Miami to praise his host city for denouncing their own sanctuary policies, Sessions said that his Department of Justice was committed to holding places like Chicago accountable for their misguided policies.

“I know that Miami-Dade will be an example of the good that comes from following the law. We have already seen that: The same Independence Day weekend when Chicago suffered more than 100 shootings and 15 homicides, Miami-Dade also had a historic number of shooting deaths—zero,” Sessions said.

The attorney general said that sanctuary cities posed a threat to their own communities and castigated them for having “the gall to feign outrage when their police departments lose federal funds as a direct result of their malfeasance.”

“So to all ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions across the country, I say this: Miami-Dade is doing it, and so can you,” Sessions said. “Work with us to enforce a lawful immigration system that keeps us safe and serves our national interest. The Department of Justice will not concede a single block or street corner in the United States to lawlessness or crime. Nor will we tolerate the loss of innocent life because a handful of jurisdictions believe that they are above the law.”

On Monday, both San Francisco and the entire state of California joined Chicago in filing lawsuits against the Justice Department. The suits claim that the DOJ needs authority from Congress if they want to attach strings to funding grants.

“The Trump administration cannot manipulate federal grant fund requirements to pressure states, counties, or municipalities to enforce federal immigration laws,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said. “By placing unconstitutional immigration enforcement conditions on public safety grants, the Trump administration is threatening to harm a range of law enforcement initiatives across California. This is pure intimidation intended to force our law enforcement into changing the policies and practices that they have determined promote public safety.”

We’d predict that these lawsuits have no shot of being successful, but we’ve learned to hedge our bets in the Trump era where you have liberal judges virtually ignoring the law in favor of their own activist beliefs. There’s no decent legal argument that says the federal government HAS to give funds to municipalities that refuse to enforce federal law; it is utterly absurd to think otherwise. But, when it comes to this administration’s policies, we’ve seen the “utterly absurd” transpire time and again in courts, especially on the West coast.

Hopefully, that won’t happen this time. If it does, these cities may have to simply wait and see for themselves how destructive these sanctuary policies are. We doubt it will take long.

The George Soros Paid Antifa Terrorists Blocked Another Road – Get A Brutal Lesson On What A Toyota 4 Runner Tastes Like

And once again we have another weekend of George Soros sponsored anti-Trump shenanigans by the Democrat Party terror group known as ANTIFA!

But this time an SUV driver in Boston wasn’t about to have any of it. So the law-abiding American citizen did what any of us would do when surrounded by a gang of thugs wanting to cause him and his vehicle harm. So when the Antifa thug gave him the order to “Stay right there” he stepped on the accelerator and ran their communist behinds over. Score one for the rule of law!

After two people were hurt because of the SUV another member of the terror group surrounded the vehicle and was about to drag the citizen out of the car and do who knows what to him, but luckily police officials were able to get there first and come to the rescue of the driver. Glad to see the mayor of Boston didn’t order the police to stand down, like the mayor of San Jose did when the gang of illegal aliens attacked Trump supporters after the rally he had there.

Of course in the video, you can hear the terrorist Antifa members cursing up a storm in disbelief that the police would actually side against them. I guess they aren’t too accustomed to the idea of not getting their way, after all, I’m sure they have gotten their way since birth from the parents who gave them everything and who now own the basement they dwell in.

Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children Reports:


With mainstream media endorsing the actions of Antifa at Charlottesville, it’s no wonder that now Antifa violence is going to become “normal” in order to “combat hate.” The concerted efforts of left-wing groups to foment violence in the name of “peace and tolerance” has become flat out insane. Our Constitution is being torn down by anarchists.

A “Free Speech” rally in Boston on August 19 is set to become yet another mess. Rally organizers have been granted a legal permit to march, not that Antifa will care about “legal.”

Who will screw that up first?

Note on this flyer that supporting police with the thin blue line flag is considered “fascist.” Any InfoWars reporters will be considered fascist and open to attack. So much for the US Constitution and any “Free Speech.” The First Amendment is now equated with Nazis and racists.

No such thing as utopia

Here we have a pledge to purge the earth of whites and the children of whites. And by the way, they don’t really believe that line about “after the purge, we will live in a worker’s paradise free from racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and oppression.”

First off, none of them “work” so having a “worker’s paradise” would be laughable if these weren’t such vicious people. And the only “oppression” is the kind they are creating. There is no such thing as a worker’s paradise – ask the common man in China, North Korea, and Cuba. It is impossible. There is no Utopia.

Targets by design

Never forget that these are paid anarchists, paid protesters, all designed to destroy the Trump presidency and tear down the fabric of the United States.

Boston planned 8 “anti-hate” rallies and vigils leading up to the “Free Speech” rally on Saturday according to Boston Magazine printed an article that was titled “How to protest the free speech rally,” which advises people not to bring weapons, and to be civil. It appears from the flyers that Antifa has no desire to be “civil.”

A Facebook page has been setup to protest the “White Nationalists” that are coming to Boston. Have you noticed that advocating free speech is now automatically labelled as ‘White Nationalism?’ And that the whites are automatically there to “intimidate” people?

“On Saturday, August 19th, White Nationalists are converging on Boston Common to reinforce their white supremacist ideology and attempt to intimidate queer and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, POC) communities.

As we have seen with the events in Charlottesville and around the country, white nationalists are emboldened by the current political administration and growing police state. Rallies and marches organized by white supremacists are more prevalent than in recent years, and—as always—it is the most marginalized who are left vulnerable.” Counter Protest Facebook page

Remember this from Saul Alinsky, one of Hillary’s mentors:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.” Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals.

These terrorists better be very careful. The American Public is a peaceful bunch. They don’t put up with lawlessness like this for long, and they are already growing very weary of constantly seeing scenes like this every time they watch the evening news. The late 60s were also tumultuous times, but in those days the Democrat Party wasn’t the one who was fanning the flames and instigating the violence because they lost an election!


A lawsuit against the Justice Department has revealed new details about the infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton

Due to a Freedom of Information Act request from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), the DOJ released 413 pages of documents related to the June 27, 2016 meeting.

The documents revealed that reporters were reluctant to cover the the meeting, and also that Lynch used an alias for official DOJ emails, including those related to the meeting.

Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Trump and chief counsel for the ACLJ, said the documents also show that there were email exchanges between the FBI and the DOJ, and the DOJ and the White House, regarding the controversial meeting.

This may have been the one time that conservatives were hoping that President Trump would actually lash out and smack Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) down. Instead, this is the one time that President Trump actually responded in a “politically” correct manner. Which is not a good thing for the GOP or the nation. On Tuesday evening McConnell could be heard whining about the amount of pressure that President Trump was putting on the GOP leadership in their efforts to repeal Obamacare. Here’s what ABC reported about McConnell’s comments: Speaking at a Rotary Club gathering in Kentucky on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vented about how President Donald Trump‘s lack of political experience has led to him setting “excessive expectations” for legislative priorities. McConnell, R-Ky., told the group in Florence that he found it “extremely irritating” that Congress has earned the reputation of not accomplishing anything. “Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because, in part, the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,” said McConnell, a Republican and the state’s senior senator… “Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. And I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell told the group. “So part of the reason I think people feel we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines — unrelated to the reality of the complexity of legislating — may not have been fully understood.” President Trump’s chief defender on Fox News, Sean Hannity, had a terse response for McConnell’s complaints. Sadly, President Trump didn’t feel the need to attack McConnell for his comments. Instead, the President decided to give McConnell an unnecessary show of support. In a decision that I believe the President will come to regret, Trump finally decided to endorse a candidate in the Alabama Republican Senate primary. There has been an ongoing battle brewing in Alabama between the Establishment (led by McConnell) and conservatives. The Establishment wants Luther Strange to be the next Senator from Alabama, while conservatives would rather Judge Roy Moore (or Rep. Mo Brooks). Moore has a wide lead over Strange who is barely ahead of Brooks in the most recent polls… but all of this math may be about to change. Why? Because President Trump has stepped in and done McConnell and the establishment a favor by endorsing Luther Strange. The Conservative Review is not impressed with this endorsement: Let’s put aside the fact that Luther Strange has been embraced by every lobbyist, special interest cartel, Mitch McConnell, and Karl Rove. This man has already been in office for six months and has quietly gone along with every last morsel of McConnell’s agenda. When Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz were fighting to repeal Obamacare, Strange was never anywhere close to the fight. Indeed, he’s been in the witness protection program on every issue. Which is just the way McConnell likes it. This is a major misstep by President Trump. Luther Strange is an establishment tool, but Judge Moore would be a strong ally of the President in Congress. By endorsing Strange the President is tacitly giving his endorsement of McConnell’s failed leadership and he is helping the D.C. Swamp survive. Please Mr. President, reverse your decision to endorse Strange and call for new blood in the Senate.

The food stamp rolls have reduced by 1.1 million individuals since Donald Trump took office in January, a new report from the United States Department of Agriculture revealed this week.

The number of those on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program dropped to 41,496,255 in May of 2017, compared to 42,691,363 at the beginning of the year — a 2.79 percent drop

According to Breitbart, that’s the lowest level in food stamp usage since 2010.

Abuse of the food stamp program has been one of the targets of the Trump administration thus far. According to Politico, the president’s budget “asks Congress to slash food stamp spending in fiscal year 2018 by more than a quarter” and to get states to step up their share of spending for the program.

“A small part of those savings would come from tightening work requirements for able-bodied individuals, but the vast majority of the proposed sum would come from making states match 20 percent of the federal SNAP outlay,” Politico reported.

“The documents released by (the Office of Management and Budget) didn’t provide details on where all the cuts would be generated. But a lengthy table included among the newly released budget docs proposes raising $2.3 billion in SNAP retailer fees over the next decade to help defray costs of the program.”

While liberals may rage about these changes, the fact is that the Trump administration is putting Obama to shame. This is one of the most abused programs in the federal pantheon, and food stamp leeches are something that Washington should have done something about long, long ago. Trump’s administration is coming through, and conservatives deserve to be thrilled.
