THE REAL RACE WAR

BY DAVID HOROWITZ

The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war. Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.

The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists. But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else. They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU. If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit? Who knows what – if anything – would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.

What “Unite the Right” actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the “Alt-Right” is actually a negligible group. This was a national show of strength that actually attracted only a few hundred people. Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshalled by two violent groups of the left – Black Lives Matter and Antifa – and you get an idea of how marginal “white supremacists” are to America’s political and cultural life.

Yet “white supremacy” and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports. Talk about virtue signaling! Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent leftwing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.

Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not have a permit for Emancipation Park (they had permits for two nearby parks). But why should they need a permit, since the havoc they had previously wreaked in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as “protests,” and their rioting went completely unpunished.

In short, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville – a legal protest by “Unite the Right” and one protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life. Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable. Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.

What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy – “white supremacy” – which is really a war on white people generally. The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is “identity politics” – the idea that the world consists of two groups – “people of color” who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors. This is the real race war. Its noxious themes inform the mindless, hysterical hatred for President Trump, and the equally mindless support for racist mobs like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. It is a war from which no good can come. But it won’t be stopped unless enough people have the courage to stand up and name it for what it is.

Eric Bolling Makes Shock Announcement

Following an article claiming several women received lewd texts from Eric Bolling, Fox News was forced to suspend him pending an investigation.

Despite the controversy and allegations, Bolling remains adamant that he never participated in the texts. He remains confident everything will be resolved saying in a tweet “Overwhelmed by all the support I have received. Thank you, I look forward to clearing my name asap.”

Bolling is a Fox News host known for his time on The Five and currently hosts The Specialists. He is known to be an avid Trump supporter and was one of the few in media who believed Trump would win the presidency during the 2016 elections.

In describing Trump, Bolling said, “When he came down the escalator with Melania, I looked across the newsroom. Every single pair of eyeballs were staring at the screen. This guy has something that we can’t describe.”

The allegations come from an article written by the Huffington Post, where multiple anonymous women, who worked–and are currently working–with Bolling on Fox, said he sent several unsolicited lewd texts three years ago.

The women claim they know the messages are from Bolling because they recognize the number to be his. Huffington Post claims it found an additional 14 sources that corroborate the allegations, but all sources have remained anonymous.

The allegations represent the third scandal to hit Fox News, following the resignation of Chairman Roger Ailes for sexual harassment charges, and Bill O’Reilly was fired following a New York Times article claiming he spent millions settling multiple sexual harassment cases.

Bolling has made it clear that the allegations aren’t true. His attorney, Michael J. Bowe, gave the following statement “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”

Bowe also told Breitbart News, “The story is based on anonymous sources and not true. No such communications occurred.”

It’s hard to imagine Bolling committing such an act, considering his stark words against Anthony Weiner when he pled guilty to sending lewd images to minors. “He is a sick human being, to continue to do this time and time again, continue to get caught, say he’s not going to do it again, gets caught again.”

While it is unclear whether the allegations are true, or if the article making them is considered fake news, it is highly suspicious that all of the women making the claims and the 14 sources supporting those claims in the article have all remained anonymous.

Huffington Post claims the sources all requested anonymity as they are currently working with 21st Century Fox and have signed confidentiality reports requiring authorization to talk to the press.

Even if the allegations are determined false, it would still be a blemish on Bolling’s career and will take him a while to regain face. It may also hurt his chances for running for political office as he stated in an interview in June “When the lights go down on my TV career the next step is running for Senate.”

Until then we’ll have to see whether he will return to Fox exonerated or if the lights will go down permanently on his TV career.

Charlottesville’s Deputy Mayor Has A Sick Secret – It’s Horrifying

The mainstream media revealed their extreme bias by attacking President Trump while ignoring the blatant racists in the Charlottesville mayor’s office.

Leading purveyor of fake news, CNN, hounded President Trump over the weekend claiming that the “moral authority” of the presidency was lost after Trump failed to disavow white nationalists by name. However, the outright racist deputy mayor of Charlottesville, Wes Bellamy, was given a free pass for a series of profanity laden tweets decrying white people.

The “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia ended in tragedy after a white nationalist protester drove his car through a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a 33-year-old woman and injuring 19 others.

Trump condemned both the protesters and anti-protesters at the “Unite the Right” rally, saying, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides, on many sides.”

Progressives immediately criticized Trump, claiming that he was making a false equivalency by comparing neo-Nazis and white supremacists–who held the rally–with the Black Lives Matter and Antifa counter-protesters.

CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta insinuated that Trump’s condemnation of both sides revealed hidden racism. “Note the President using the term “many sides.” Given the chance, he didn’t condemn these white supremacists and neo-Nazis by name,” he tweeted.

However, any honest liberal would be forced to admit that the violence promoted by Antifa and Black Lives Matter has no place in a modern republic. Both groups of protesters descended on Charlottesville armed with bricks and bats looking for a fight. Political violence is never justifiable.

Antifa, short for Anti-Fascists, have risen to prominence on the Left after the election of Trump. The far-left movement maintains that Trump is attempting to usher fascism into America and must be resisted by force. Antifa is best known for their violent protests against free speech, lighting vehicles on fire, and violently suppressing right-wing gatherings, according to the National Review.

Other counter-protesters in Charlottesville represented the racist and dangerous Black Lives Matter movement. Black Lives Matter protesters frequently chant, “Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon” and “What do we want? Dead cops!” during their anti-police displays. This racist movement tacitly encouraged a sniper to open fire on a crowd of police officers in Dallas in July 2016 at the end of a Black Lives Matter protest. The sniper killed five officers and wounded several others, the National Review reports.

Clearly, both sides of the Charlottesville protest are evil and worthy of condemnation. However, while Trump is willing to condemn neo-Nazis associating themselves with the right-wing, prominent liberals refuse to acknowledge the evil committed by those on their side.

Rhetoric was flying after the incident in Charlottesville last weekend. Did President Trump sufficiently disavow the white racists involved in the rally?

In fact, many prominent liberals are outright racists themselves, including the deputy mayor of Charlottesville. In a series of tweets from 2011 onward, Wes Bellamy wrote on Twitter, “White women = Devil”, “I hate seeing white people in Orangeberg”, and many other racist sentiments. However, when CNN discussed the racist tweets with Bellamy, they offered him a free pass, forgiving his statements before he even addressed them.

If liberals want any credibility in exposing the so-called racism on the Right, then they should start by cleaning up their own backyard. While white racism is a minority of the Republican Party, the reality is that anti-white racism is the norm in Democrat circles.

Here’s Who Could Replace McConnell As Senate Majority Leader

– Should Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell step down from the top position in Congress, Republicans will be looking for someone savvy enough to accomplish a difficult legislative to-do list and trusted by the president.

President Donald Trump has not held back in his repeated criticisms of McConnell. Trump blames him for failing to repeal Obamacare in the first six months that Republicans controlled both the Congress and the presidency.

A Senate majority leader under Trump has a difficult job of working to pass complex legislation, including Obamacare repeal, immigration reform, tax reform and a massive infrastructure spending bill, in a sharply-divided chamber with a slight majority. All without attracting the ire of the commander in chief.

Here are seven senators that could be tapped to lead the caucus in the unlikely event McConnell steps down or retires:

John Cornyn

As the number two in GOP Senate leadership, current Majority Whip Sen. John Cornyn would be the obvious replacement for McConnell.

He’s known for taking tough jobs that other senators don’t want and even told Politico in March that the majority leadership position is “something I would be interested in doing.”

Republican leadership positions are term-limited, and Cornyn will be ineligible to continue as majority whip after 2018. He may retire, as many whips do when their terms are up, or look for his time as the top dog.

Thad Cochran

As the second most senior Republican in the Senate, Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi holds a commanding position in the body. He chairs the largest Senate committee, the Committee on Appropriations, overseeing 12 subcommittees.

The Senate leadership position isn’t just about being popular. It’s about wrangling votes, building coalitions, and understanding unique Senate rules to accomplish one’s objectives. A deep understanding of how committees work goes a long way.

Orrin Hatch

Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is one of the most senior Republicans, and the second most senior senator in the chamber. While he considered retiring in 2018, he decided to stay to help Trump fight against the ingrained Washington establishment.

Trump was even influential in convincing Hatch to not retire after four decades in the Senate. “His pitch is he needs me,” Hatch said of Trump in March. “Things are going to be just fine.”

As the chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance, Hatch leads an influential group, but it’s unclear whether he’d consider taking the top leadership position. Hatch expressed complete support of McConnell on Twitter Thursday, calling him the “best leader we’ve had in my time in the Senate, through very tough challenges.”

Chuck Grassley

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley has been in the Senate since 1981. He’s proved adept at attracting co-sponsors on his bills and resolutions, ranking third highest for that particular skill in 2015, according to GovTrack.

The Senate leadership position isn’t about being popular. It’s about wrangling votes, building coalitions, and understanding unique Senate rules to accomplish one’s objectives. A deep understanding of how committees’ work goes a long way.

Grassley chairs both the Committee on the Judiciary and the International Narcotics Control Caucus. He hasn’t been afraid to call out Trump administration policies — like ignoring oversight requests from Democratic senators — which is a key skill in a caucus that wishes to preserve some independence from the president.

Shelley Capito

Having the support of Trump may not be as important as having the respect senators representing Trump supporters, but West Virginia Sen. Shelley Capito has both.

Trump endorsed Capito’s Senate campaign in 2014, and though she’s a junior Senator to Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, she would be a key ally to the Trump administration.

John Barrasso

Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso is a relatively new senator (he was elected in 2006), but in his tenure, he’s served on an impressive number of committees. He now chairs the Committee on the Environment and Public Works and leads the Senate Republican Policy Committee.

Trump praised Barrasso’s performance on Fox News during the campaign as Trump was working to rally Republicans behind his nomination.

Barrasso has “every confidence in Leader McConnell, as does the rest of the conference. His leadership remains indispensable for unity and legislative success this fall,” he said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

McConnell has led Republicans in the Senate for more than a decade, most of that time as minority leader. His Republican colleagues unanimously elected him majority leader in 2014. He enjoys strong, almost universal, support from his fellow senators, even though he has the highest dispproval rating among the upper chamber.

EVIDENCE OF DEMOCRATIC VOTER FRAUD MOUNTING UP

Meet Andrew Spieles, a loyal Democrat who is going to spend the next 100 days in prison for being a loyal Democrat. Spieles is a 21-year-old student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

The loyal Democrat was an employee for the Registrar’s Office but was a loyal worker for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election season. During a registration drive for the Democratic Party, Spieles began submitting fake voter registration forms for dead people.

According to a report:

“‘On August 15, 2016, an employee of the Registrar’s Office contacted law enforcement after another employee in the office recognized a registration form submitted in the name of the deceased father of a Rockingham County Judge,’ according to the Department of Justice. ‘The Registrar’s Office discovered multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations. Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers’.”

“Spieles was working for the Democratic campaign during the voter registration drive, and ‘admitted that he prepared the false voter registration forms by obtaining the name, age, and address of individuals from ‘walk sheets’ provided to him by the Virginia Democratic Party, fabricating a birth date based on the ages listed in the walk sheet, and fabricating the social security numbers,’ the Justice Department wrote in a news release.”

Democrats continue to claim that there is no evidence of voter fraud. How many instances of voter fraud by Democrats will it take to convince anyone that not only has voter fraud nee rampant but that the vast majority of it has been done at the hands of Democrats?

Here are just a few accounts of Democratic voter fraud:

1) On August 6, 2011, it was reported that Attorney General Eric Holder, head of the Department of Justice, has been setting militant members of the New Black Panthers, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson free. Shabazz is the national head of the New Black Panthers and Jackson is a member of the Philadelphia Black Panthers and a Democratic Party official.

J. Christian Adams, a former Department of Justice attorney had worked in the Civil Rights Division where he had brought charges of violation of civil rights against two members of the New Black Panther group for voter intimidation. He had a strong case against the two men, but Attorney General Eric Holder refused to press the charges any further and both men were released and the case dropped.

It turns out that in 2006, then Sen. Barack Obama had marched alongside Shabazz and Jackson. Coincidence? Don’t think so.

2) On August 7, 2012, it was reported that election officials in Virginia decided not to further investigate a group that had sent partially completed voter registration cards to dead people, children, and pets. The Romney campaign had called for an investigation,

3) On September 7, 2012, it was reported that Project Veritas sent an undercover person into President Obama’s grassroots campaign group known as Organizing for America, headquarters in Houston, Texas. The agent explained that she was registered to vote in Florida and in Texas and wanted to vote twice to help Obama’s chance of winning re-election.

The staffer she spoke with, Stephanie Caballero, the Regional Field Director for OFA in Houston, is a salaried employee of the Democratic National Committee. In the course of two visits from the Veritas agent, Caballero helped her and encouraged her to vote in both states, clearly violations of federal election laws.

4) On November 7, 2012, it was reported that a couple from Forest Park showed up yesterday at the polls to vote just like they have ever since they turned 18. When it was their turn, they were both told that they had already voted via absentee ballot. The couple said that they have never voted absentee and wanted to know how this could happen.

Precinct officials told them that they could fill out a provisional ballot, which they did.

Before long, a number of other voters in the same precinct were told the same thing, that they had already voted via absentee ballots and that they also needed to fill out a provisional ballot. Eventually, voting officials said that the mistake was due to ‘human error’ and that anyone else in the same situation would likewise have to cast a provisional ballot. In Ohio, provisional ballots are not counted until 10 days after the election.

5) On November 19, 2012, it was reported during the early voting in Ohio, voters in one voting precinct found that when they selected Mitt Romney the voting machine gave the vote to Barack Obama. This happened on more than one occasion.

In Cleveland, 149 precincts out of a total of 1077 precincts in all of Cuyahoga County reported fewer than 10 votes for Mitt Romney. Statistically this is extremely rare and many experts suggest that this represents some sort of voter fraud.

In Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, the final vote was Barack Obama 420,953 to Mitt Romney’s 184,475 votes. Considering Obama won Ohio with less than a margin of 104,000 votes, it makes one question the accuracy and legitimacy of the county’s election system.

6) On October 25, 2012, it was reported about people voting in more than one state because their names were not removed from the state they previously lived in. Worse yet, states like Minnesota have a voucher voting where someone can vote purely on the testimony of someone who is on the voter registration roll.

7) On October 26, 2012, it was reported Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) was sworn in as a member of the U.S House of Representatives in January 1991. The former Mayor of Arlington, Virginia is nearing the end of his 11th term in Congress and seemed like a safe bet for re-election. That is until his son was caught on tape discussing how to commit voter fraud.

Pat Moran, Field Director for his father’s election campaign is a full-time paid employee of that campaign. He was approached by an undercover reporter for Veritas and asked how to could a couple of people get away with voting for 100 other people who supposedly were not going to vote. Pat Moran suggests they forge utility bills with names and addresses for the people as that should pass for identification on Election Day. At one point, he even seems to offer the aid of attorneys working for the Obama campaign.

8) On February 11, 2013, it was reported a Democratic poll worked in Cincinnati, Ohio who admits to voting twice for Obama. Not only did she vote twice, but so did her granddaughter. Melowese Richardson, a poll worker for 25 years, told the local news that she voted using an absentee ballot and then voted again on Election Day. Her excuse was that she wasn’t sure her absentee vote would get counted, so she voted a second time to make sure her vote for Obama counted. She also admits to sending in an absentee ballot for her granddaughter and voting for several other people. However, she is not alone, as the Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 reports of voter fraud in the Cincinnati area. They say they have nine witnesses so far in their investigation. Richardson claims she’s done nothing wrong although every poll worker knows that voting twice is a crime.

9) On April 29, 2013, it was reported State Rep. Dan Pabon (D-Denver) said that he is sponsoring a large piece of legislation to revamp Colorado’s election system at the request of the Colorado County Clerks Association. Part of that legislation would allow voters to register up to and including the day of election.

If Pabon gets his legislation passed allowing anyone to register the day of election, just think about what could happen. As we saw in the video that you don’t need ID to register, anyone wanting to commit voter fraud could go from precinct to precinct to precinct all day long, registering and voting under false names. One hundred people, could theoretically cast between 1,000 to 1,500 votes for the candidate(s) of their choice. In many elections, this is enough to secure the outcome of an election for anyone with enough connections or money to make it happen. Expand that further to 1,000 corrupt people who could cast between 10,000 and 15,000 votes for someone like their Democratic governor or presidential candidate.

10) On January 22, 2014, it was reported that Project Veritas has uncovered another case of widespread voter fraud and illegal campaigning by Democrats in Texas. The group known as Battleground Texas has ties to the old ACORN, the group caught in illegal activities and who employed Barack Obama as an attorney. Field Organizer Jennifer Longoria of Battleground Texas was caught on video describing how they go out to get people to register to vote. Then they take that information and enter the person’s name, address and phone number in their own database which is then used to call them to urge them to vote for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. When James O’Keefe of Project Veritas checked with the Texas Secretary of State, he was told that it is illegal to take personal information including telephone numbers off of voter registration forms.

11) On March 27, 2014, it was reported Judicial Watch is reporting that there are at least two states, Iowa and Colorado along with the District of Columbia that have more registered voters than adults 18 and over living in the states. And if the states don’t clean up their voter registration rolls, Judicial Watch will take legal action to get them to do so. According to the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, states and municipalities are required to keep legitimate voter rolls.

Judicial Watch compared US Census data for 2010 and 2012 and compared population figures to the data from the US Election Assistance Commission. They discovered that the number of counties in Iowa with more registered voters than eligible residents had increased from 10 counties in 2010 to 24 counties in 2012. There is a total of 99 counties in Iowa which meant that going into the 2012 elections, that nearly 1 of every 4 counties had more registered voters than eligible adults. I don’t know which counties they are, but I would not be surprised if those 24 counties were among the 37 counties Obama won.

In Colorado, Judicial Watch discovered that the number of counties with more registered voters than eligible adults rose from 10 in 2010 to 22 counties in 2012. Colorado only has 64 counties, which means a little over 1 of every 3 counties had more voters than adults. Like in Iowa, I wonder how many of the 27 counties that Obama won were among the 22 that had more registered voters than eligible adults.

12) On November 4, 2014, it was reported there is an investigation being launched in North Carolina concerning Democratic campaign workers willing to help illegal aliens cast their ballots. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught one such Democratic campaign worker on video agreeing to help a supposed illegal vote.

When the video was made public, the North Carolina State Board of Elections launched an investigation into the allegations made by the video. Josh Lawson, a spokesman for the State Board of Elections said that they have asked Project Veritas for a full unedited video of the occurrence.

Lawson also stated that an internal state audit that compared voter registration records with databases from Homeland Security and the Department of Motor Vehicle revealed that over 1,400 non-citizens are registered to vote in North Carolina. At least 20 of those non-citizens have already cast early or absentee ballots and at least 226 of them have voted in precious elections.

13) On December 14, 2016, it was reported that two days into the Michigan recount, a federal judge stopped it, claiming that Stein had no grounds to ask for a recount since she received only 1% of the popular vote. The interesting aspect of the Michigan recount was that in those short two days, there was evidence discovered of Democratic voter fraud and votes counted up to 6 times, mostly in favor of Hillary Clinton.

These are just a few of the many documented incidence of voter fraud involving Democrats. To these add the fact that prior to the 2012 elections, the US Attorney General Eric Holder used the Justice Department to challenge and block every state’s attempts to clean up voter registration records. All states wanted to do was to remove documented dead people and non-citizens, but Holder blocked every effort to do so.

Prior to the 2016 elections, California and Oregon (both run by liberal Democrats) passed laws that allowed illegal aliens and other non-citizens to register to vote. with the new laws, all anyone had to do was obtain or renew a valid state driver’s license and they would be automatically registered to vote. It is estimated that California has more than 3 million illegal aliens living in the state and many of them have driver’s licenses.

There have been people convicted of first degree murder on less evidence than this and yet Democrats continue to claim that voter fraud does not exist and they continue to fight all of President Donald Trump’s efforts to look into the possibility of voter fraud.

If it were feasible to verify every single vote cast in the 2016 presidential election, it would not surprise me to see that Donald Trump not only won the Electoral vote but that he also substantially won the popular vote as well, solidifying his claim to the White House.

 

A STRAWMAN MADE OF BRONZE

By John F. Di Leo – 

Reflections on the anatomy of a setup…

The news of the hour is about Charlottesville and its many copycats. For decades, there have been people agitating to take down monuments to Confederate heroes, and for just as long, there have been people defending them. But only in the summer of 2017 did this issue vault to the top of the headlines, above far worthier issues.

The question of the hour should not be what to do about the statues. The question should be “Why?” Why is this issue arising, when there is so much in the world that is so much more important than century-old bronze statues, sitting in local, state, and national parks… statues so old, in most cases, that you can’t even read their names until you get up close?

Upon analysis, we find that in this story, almost nothing is what it seems.

What To Do?

Let’s begin with the most basic aspect of the issue. Who owns the statues? In virtually every case, there is clear ownership by some government body. A college, a city council, a park district, a county, a state, or a federal department such as the National Park Service.

In a nation founded on respect for human rights – among which, Property rights rank right alongside Life and Liberty – the answer should be simple. It’s up to the owners.  If the state, or college, or city wants to move a statue or leave it standing, that’s up to them.  Governments redesign and repurpose public parks all the time.

If people are offended by statues of long-dead 200-year-old Democrats, they should petition the relevant bodies, and either cheer when they win or politely accept defeat when they lose.

This is not something to protest over. It is not something to spend millions of dollars fighting.  We have more important issues in this country… issues like crime, jobs, education, health, invasion, and national security.

And while we’re on the subject… for the most part, the Republican Party has no say in the matter, and ought to stay out of it.

The Confederacy was a rebellion by Democrats, the party of slavery. These are statues of Democrats – the original Democrats, the honest 19th century Democrats who at least told you what they thought, and didn’t lie to their members with promises of a welfare state and a chicken in every pot like 20th century Democrats did – and it’s Democrats who are demanding that they be torn down.

Let’s let the Democrats sort it out amongst themselves. Republicans were the anti-slavery party, the party that was specifically founded to end the practice in the United States. Republicans truly have no dog in this fight.

A Statue in Charlottesville

There is a statue in Charlottesville.Like many such statues, it’s a beautiful, imposing monument in a public park… in this case, a handsome statue of an equestrian Robert E. Lee, West Point graduate, decorated veteran of American wars, and commander in chief of the southern forces in the Confederate States of America, the renegade country that lost a civil war.

General Lee was, by all accounts, a great man. An honorable Virginian who served his country, who detested slavery, and who in fact was not a slaveowner himself.

But when war came, he answered Virginia’s call, even though President Lincoln had hoped he would serve the North.

The reason why is instructive: While Lee was an opponent of slavery, he viewed the United States as a federation, not as a single nation. He believed his true debt of loyalty was to his country, which was Virginia… so he believed he had no choice.  While northerners viewed the United States as a single nation, so rebels must be classified as traitors, most southerners viewed each state as a nation, and the United States as a voluntary association.

Robert E. Lee would have felt like a traitor to Virginia if he had heeded the call from the United States to fight against his countrymen in Virginia.

Look at the European Union and the 2016 BREXIT vote in Great Britain. They have a surprisingly similar dynamic over there, across the Pond, even today.  Great Britain rightly maintained that they had never meant to surrender their sovereignty when they joined the EU, but over the past twenty years, the EU became more and more tyrannical, so Great Britain was right to depart.  It shocked the EU leadership in Brussels.  “You can’t leave!” they screamed… but Great Britain could, and voted to do so.  And the EU is furious.

We in the United States were in a very different situation, but that much was similar. Certain politicians of the American South felt that their states could exit the federation anytime, and most politicians of the American North disagreed.

This could have been an interesting philosophical point were it not for the role that slavery played in the politics of the era. The South was pro-slavery… even though few of those who fought for the South were slaveowners, even though many were philosophically opposed to slavery themselves, they identified with their states, so when war came, they fought for the CSA.

In the years since, most Americans have managed to find a middle ground, respecting heroism, valiance, devotion to their neighbors and states, relieved that slavery was finally eliminated in the end.

So most Americans view the various statues as what they are: artwork, decorations, historical artifacts. They shouldn’t upset us, as they stand for many other issues as well, not just for slavery.

But to some Americans today, especially those who are whipped into a frenzy by political demagogues, these statues just stand for the evil institution of slavery, gone from the United States for 150 years now, but still practiced across much of the globe.

A Riot in Charlottesville

On Saturday, August 12, 2017, a fight took place in Charlottesville, around this particular statue. There was a demonstration and a counterdemonstration, and state troopers looked on while fighting erupted.

The acknowledged Left (Democrat public officials) and the unacknowledged Left (members of the media who pretend to be nonpartisan, but are anything but) immediately seized upon the fight as a political touchpoint, and demanded that President Trump denounce some of the fighters.

So he did. But that wasn’t enough for them.  While he rightly denounced all the fighters, all the instigators on all sides, the Left only wanted him to call out the neo-Nazis and KKK members.  Well, President Trump has been denouncing neo-Nazis and KKK members for 20 years, but the Left nagged until he denounced them again by name… along with Antifa and all the other thugs present at the fight.

The Left would have us believe that this is a moment of embarrassment for the Right. It is not.  The Right had nothing to do with that event.

The people who had a permit to demonstrate – a broad group that included Neo-Nazis and KKK members – was a group of Democrats. They are of the Left.

The people who arrived to counter-demonstrate – a much larger group, including Antifa, Occupy, Greens, and the typical CraigsList hires of the MoveOn variety – was also a group of Democrats. They are of the Left.

So these may have appeared to be different groups of Leftists… different branches of Leftists… but there’s simply no question about it: This is a battle between Leftists.

The so called Right-Wing – the conservatives and libertarians of and around the Republican Party in America – has nothing to do with either side of that dust-up in Charlottesville.

Remember, Republicans were in the North during the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln wasn’t even allowed on the ballot in some Southern states.  Republicans aren’t involved in this internecine squabble between variants of American Democrats.

The Truth Will Out

One of the great old lines of the genre of detective novels and 1940s noir movies is the declaration, “The truth will out.” No matter how hard powerful forces may try to bury the facts, eventually, the truth will be discovered.

And sure enough, in the days since Charlottesville, a great deal has come to light. More is sure to follow, but in mere days, consider what we know of the background already:

Jason Kessler, the organizer who pulled the permit for the original ‘pro-statue’ demonstration on Saturday, was a registered Democrat, longtime Obama supporter and Occupy protest veteran.

The organizers of the counter-protest – who, of course, did not have a permit – were also registered Democrats and Occupy protest veterans. They brought in busloads of protesters from states away.  How?  How did they all get there?  Well, the word had gone out as soon as the permit was pulled.  There was somebody on the inside, at city hall, pulling the strings to ensure there was a counter-demonstration in his town.

For such demonstrations, police design the cordons in specific ways, to ensure that protesters and counter-protesters are kept apart, to ensure that innocent bystanders are safely out of danger, and to ensure that if necessary, people can be dispersed safely and quickly.

By contrast, we have learned that the police intentionally designed the layout in a manner that allowed these opposing forces to be so close to each other, a fight was virtually inevitable. Worse still, the police failed to intervene at a logical time, despite being present in the necessary numbers and gear to do their jobs.

Why?

These cannot be coincidences. Both the protest and counter protest were organized by the same kind of people – left wing Obama era Occupy activists. There was clearly local government involvement in fanning the flames by ensuring that there would be a much bigger counter protest than the original authorized demonstration would be. And someone gave the police the orders to behave as they did; no police force would behave this way on their own.

At this writing, we don’t know everything yet. We don’t know which Democrat officeholders were involved, whether it was strictly local or if decisions were made as high as the governor’s office… but there is a gubernatorial race in Virginia this fall, and fanning the flames of racial division is a well-known tool in the modern Democrat campaign playbook. Maybe the main one.

Aftermath

The Charlottesville story catapulted to the top of the news. For as small an event as it was, it captured the imagination of the press.  There have been mass killings, horrific tragedies, both on the domestic and international scenes since Saturday, but the press has not allowed them to eclipse Charlottesville.

North Korea announced that it is standing down; Little Kim withdrew his threat to attack Guam. A dozen MS-13 gang leaders were arrested in Ohio and Indiana in a major DoJ drug bust.    The NAFTA negotiations are beginning with the goal of targeted openings of certain markets with Mexico and Canada.

But the press doesn’t care. They’re covering Charlottesville.  Why?

Because that was the plan.

The event itself was a setup. All they had to do was stage a rally at a Confederate monument, and they could be sure that a few KKK members and neo-Nazi sickos would show up to participate.

People who know their history certainly know that the KKK is a creation of the Democratic Party, with late Senate leader Robert Byrd their most famous recent chief… and people who know their history also certainly know that Nazis are socialists – it’s the name, for Heaven’s sakes… Nazi stands for National Socialists – so they’re Democrats too.

But the press isn’t interested in people who know their history.

The press is interested in gullible people, and they have found many.

Only the modern American press would have the audacity to claim that Nazis and KKK members – a bunch of Democrats – were right wing. But they do.

So they created a narrative that good, decent, caring counter protesters saw these ‘rightwingers’ and stood up to them, then the ‘rightwingers’ got violent. And they doubled down on that spin.

Even as we learn that the police were ordered by politicians to turn the place into a powder keg, even as video shows that it was the Antifa counter protesters who started the fighting, even as news reports confirm that the so called ‘unite the right’ rally was actually run by a left wing activist… the Left is confident that few enough people will learn the truth, and that their false narrative will hold for enough people that this will end up as a political win for the Left. Even though it was a massive sham.

These are all Democrats… from the fighters on both sides to the men in bronze up there on the pedestals. And yet, the Democrats are masterfully twisting the truth to try to make Republicans look bad.

They want to make Republicans defend statues of dead Democrats, so they can claim we agree with them, even though we fought a civil war against them to free the slaves.

They want to make Republicans support the Nazis and KKK members who were set up, even though we are diametrically opposed to them on every issue.

They want to make Republicans’ belief in fair play and the rule of law our undoing. The Left knows we oppose the rewriting of history, and they are confident that they can tie us to the memory of the very people our party was established to oppose, the people we fought and won a civil war to defeat.

The Republicans have always stood for individual freedom and intellectual honesty, and the today’s Democrats are intent on cleverly crafting a way to use our moral core against us.

So, if you’ve been wondering why Democrats are working so hard to topple every monument to Civil War era Democrats – in fact, to remove every single standing reminder that slavery was an original “Democratic Party Family Value” from the very beginning – perhaps the answer is right there in the question.

Virginia Police Just Admitted Trump Was Right

President Trump was slammed by liberals after denouncing the “display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides” in the aftermath of the Charlottesville, Virgina “Unite the Right” rally.

The mainstream media was in an uproar over President Trump’s statement, claiming that he was creating a false equivalence between right-wing extremists and those counter-protesting. However, Trump’s statement is consistent with local police reports. “We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides. They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them,” said a Virginia police spokesperson, according to The Independent Journal Review.

Corinne Geller, the Virginia police spokesperson, went on to explain that protesters “were launching chemicals into the crowd,” without singling out either side.

Videos capturing the Charlottesville protests makes it abundantly clear that both sides arrived at Emancipation Park looking for a fight. White nationalists and Ku Klux Klan stood on one side, with Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters on the other. Both were armed with makeshift shields and bats.

Even left-wing New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg called out left-wing violence. “The hard Left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park,” she tweeted.

White supremacy is a horrid and backward ideology that has no business in a modern society. However, white supremacists enjoy the same rights as all other Americans. It is easy to defend speech that one agrees with, but freedom of expression is truly tested when even despicable speech must be defended.

Neo-Nazis are despicable, but racist ideology should be beaten with ideas, not bats. If white supremacists are the intellectually stunted people that many liberals assume they are, then it should be effortless to vanquish them in the marketplace of ideas. Americans should not settle disagreements with violence. The ideas of neo-Nazis are horrid, senseless, and full of hate. Confronting them with violence only exemplifies the very ideology they espouse.

Dinesh D’Souza Drops Massive Truth Bomb About White Nationalists

In the aftermath of the Charlottesville riot that resulted in the death of a young woman, President Trump has been excoriated by the left as being a racist Nazi, with many comparing him to Hitler.

In an appearance on Fox News, Dinesh D’Souza puts that comparison to rest with the actual facts, stating, “White nationalism comes from the same place that black nationalism, fascism, and Nazism all come from, and—much to the surprise of the media—it isn’t the GOP.”

TRUMP AND AMERICA WINS —

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.
