2018 Will Be A Bloodbath – For Democrats

Via Billy

As President Trump’s troubles mount, the long-standing expectation that Democrats will gain several House and Senate seats in 2018 has only intensified. At this point, many observers are expecting a bloodbath – and they’re right. But for structural, historical, and intangible reasons, expect the bloodbath to be for Democrats as the GOP further expands its dominance in both houses of Congress.

I see five reasons Democrats on Capitol Hill should stock up on life preservers.

1) Trump’s unpopularity won’t matter.

AMERICA STANDS ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE



In the wake of Charlottesville and the seemingly-overnight eruption of violence, the tearing down of statues, the ramped-up burning of American flags, and what feels like an explosion of both anti-police and person-to-person violence, and even more dangerous rhetoric, I will open by quoting a good friend of mine who opined many months prior to any of this: “America has not been this divided since the Civil War”. He is a student of history and an all-around pretty sharp guy and is, I fear, right.

TAKE THE RED PILL

As I said in my introductory essay, I was born in the Peoples’ Republic of Massachusetts. I grew up in a very Leftist household; my parents were staunch in their beliefs until they passed. I, somehow, diverted rightward – I think in large part because of my first That’s weird… moment – defined as a moment when I was exposed to information that contradicted what I “knew”, forcing me, if I claimed the title of a thinking person, to investigate the subject further (in reflection, I was starting to veer off even in high school when, after an anti-nuclear power screed in the school newspaper, I wrote a counter letter praising nuclear energy). A few years ago, having moved substantially rightward, I stumbled upon and was shocked by the must-buy, must-read, must-keep book Liberal Fascism

I do not believe that government is a mere bystander in all this, incapable of a sufficient response. Look at what happened out west when government has made war upon land owners and brought men into courts and prisons because they resisted. These are NOT the actions of a powerless agent! ALL THAT YOU SEE HAPPENING is being engineered by our government! These tyrants had no problem with matters proceeding at the pace desired until a spanner was thrown in the works — the election of an outsider. They expected another insider as the Republican nominee who would (naturally!) lose to the chosen Democrat, Hillary Clinton. When — surprise, surprise! — an OUTSIDER got the nomination, they then expected with all the voter fraud and media complicity, he would (again, naturally!) lose, again they were astounded that there were too many of US to let THEM win! I believe that what is happening now was not supposed to happen for perhaps another two or three years, but the election of Trump has changed the time frame and that is why everything happened so oddly!

I believe that they (the establishment a/k/a the Deep State) took the matter of Dylann Roof, originally designed for another assault on gun rights, and made it into the current assault against first the South and then the United States because they saw that matters were getting out of hand! This is why the whole campaign of cultural genocide is being so badly done! The army of Democrat brownshirts are now, frankly, out of control! This was NOT the original schedule and the tremendous thrust toward a communist revolution (which was supposed to be so much more carefully crafted) is now actually being taken over by the very “foot soldiers” that the DC establishment believed they controlled! It gets hairy when your subordinates are no longer subordinate! When you add to that the fact that far too many white Americans are not going around beating their breasts and mumbling “mea culpas,” the situation is, in fact, become very dangerous indeed! The fuse has been lit, but the arsonists are no longer in charge of the fire.

It’s About Creating Chaos

Via Billy

Remember, this is not about race. This is about creating chaos. This is about using divisive “issues” (basically, badly constructed straw men) to drive wedges between artificially identified “segments” of society.

Divide and conquer. It’s about the revolution. Can’t bring about the revolution while people still have a cohesive society. Must have chaos to bring it down.

Then the “revolution” can install whatever totalitarian regime they have in mind.

If you zero in on this “race” thing, you’ve already been had.

Keep your eyes clear. Realize that all the sound and fury you’re hearing and seeing is cover for the rending of society.

Reject them. The merchants of chaos haven’t had a new idea in a hundred years.
They’re gonna call you names. It doesn’t matter. Give them nothing to hold onto.
Oh, and discover their crimes. There are always crimes. Shine bright lights on their crimes.

They believe their “time has come.” I believe they’re two generations too early.

Reject the chaos. Create your own certainty and serenity. Give them nothing.

Cliven Bundy followers found not guilty in armed standoff case

Four defenders of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy have been found not guilty of numerous charges relating to their 2014 armed demonstration to stop a government-led cattle roundup.

The Arizona Republic reported Tuesday that Scott Drexler, Ricky Lovelien, Eric Parker and Steven Stewart were found not guilty on multiple charges, including conspiracy, assault on a federal officer, extortion and weapons law violations related to the standoff with federal authorities. The jury deadlocked on four charges for Parker and two against Drexler, according to the newspaper, meaning they could face a retrial.

Defense attorney Shawn Perez told the Republic after the verdict that he was "shaking" and "teary-eyed."

The HL Hunley fought for the confederacy in the US civil war and was sunk near North Charleston, South Carolina, in 1864.

Speculation about the crew's deaths has included suffocation and drowning, but a new study claims that a shockwave created by their own weapon was to blame.

 Antichrist Obama's actions and "legacy" does not matter to the those who voted for him. You may find a high information liberal who will have enough honesty to admits that any or all of the above points are factually correct and true. It does NOT matter. His/her/genderwordsalad's ego and their never to be questioned faith in their superiority will never permit them to admit they were wrong. They would rather die first than to admit they were wrong. Real world results are ignored as feeling and loyalty to the party trumps all other considerations.

Credit where credit is due: Antichrist Obama has been an remarkably successful in so polarizing the public that reconciliation is almost impossible. The country that we were born into is dead and gone. This a fact. The Rule of Law is also dead and gone, replaced by a black robed tyrant ditating that the "law" is what ever I say it says. The culture continues on its downward spiral to promote that brings out the depraved in people.
To put it in Biblical terms, we now live in a society that promotes sinful behavior, and have segment of the population willing to murder you if you much as disagree with them. There is zero doubt in my mind that any of the SJWs, BLM activist, and the Antifa people would commit murder without a second thought, if they thought that they could get away with it. I do take them at their word. I do believe that the racist black activist would kill me because I am white. I do believe that the 3rd wave feminist would kill me just because I am a male. I do believe that the LGBTPDQXYZ activist would kill me just because I believe there are only two genders. They really do hate you and want you dead, and are rabidly determined to make it happen. They lust after genocide. This is the state of the FUSA today.

Charlottesville, Virginia, a city named after Britain’s first black queen, was the scene of a bloody riot Saturday, Aug. 12. The fray resulted in the death of one woman, who was mowed down by a car; plus, there were many other people injured. Have politicians and the news media told the correct and complete story about what happened, or have Americans been deliberately misled? Let’s look at it.

One does not have to accept the racist and nationalist vision of the Unite the Right organization to recognize and respect its First Amendment rights. Moreover, the group obtained a city permit to hold a peaceful rally to protest the lawful removal of the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park, formerly known as Lee Park. It was the leftist protesters who did not have a city permit to assemble for a rally on that day. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said: “There has got to be a movement in this country to bring people together. The hatred and rhetoric that has gone on and has intensified over the last couple months is dividing this great nation.” He denounced “the white supremacists and the Nazis.” However, when asked a question about whether he would include the left-wing, pro-violence antifa in his condemnation, he ignored the question and walked out of the room.

Nullification: Citizens do not need lawyers and judges to tell them what THEIR Constitution means.”

 
 
A review of Nullification: Reclaiming the Consent of the Governed by Clyde Wilson, Shotwell Press, 2016.

As a young conservative, I came across ideas like nullification and states’ rights, during my studies.

But they were always passed over, as if they didn’t mean anything anymore. When I read Robert Bork’s excellent book on Originalism, I never saw his unquestioned and unstated premise: that the it is the job of federal judges to decide upon the Constitution. I was never quite so aware of how much we have forgotten about America’s constitutional tradition, as I was when reading Dr. Clyde Wilson’s latest work.

Dr. Wilson’s work Nullification is 10 chapters in length. Most are brief, filled with prose that hits you like a lightweight boxer. No sooner is the reader struck once by a line than another one. Time after time, he takes cherished notions and leaves them in ruins. He fills pages with historical retelling and terse applications of the truth to the present.

VIRGINIA SCV HERITAGE UPDATE

Via Billy

Flag of Virginia.svg 
Adopted 1861
 

This report will not be about the details of what is currently going on in Virginia. Most of what can be said about this has been said.   I have talked to the press from Canada to Great Britain. I have been interviewed by every left wing newspaper, TV network, and radio station from here to the Mississippi.  Travis Toombs, Fred Chiesa and others have done a great job of getting this word out to you, the members of the Virginia Division and even the outside world.

There is only one thing further I wish to say about Charlottesville.  On the evening of August 21st, a council meeting was held in that city.  Even with looking at the news and reading about it, it was difficult to determined the pro or con of those in attendance.  It turned into a free-for-all with the Mayor and Council retreating to a back room.  Judging by quotes and signs, it was apparent that all parties agreed on  one thing.......that all of the violence brought to Charlottesville was the fault of the Mayor and the City Council.  It was evident that this was a self inflected wound by signs telling the council that they had blood on their hands.

There have been questions as to whether or not the Virginia Division is holding a rally.  The answer is yes we are.  Hopefully it will be the largest rally we have ever held in Virginia.  The date will be November 7, 2017.  It will last all day and into the evening.  It will be held at locations all over the State.  These locations are called   Polling places......no one will be more than a mile or two from one of these rally points.  You have no excuse not to be there.

It doesn't matter what you have or haven't done for the cause before. This is your chance to stand up and be counted.   Don't just say "somebody should do something", BE that somebody.  Speaking for the Virginia Division SCV, I am not permitted to tell you how to vote.  You must figure that out on your own.  We can tell you that the candidates from one party have already stated that the Monuments WILL COME DOWN.

They can't wait to get into office to make this happen.  The other party's candidates have stated that they WILL NOT SEEK to take down the monuments or rewrite Virginia history.

This is a major turning point for our State and the Country.  If you have never voted before, vote this time.

If you are not registered, get registered!  If for any reason like minded neighbors can not get to the polls, drive them there yourself.  Get every sane, rational, member of your family to vote.  This is your chance to stop asking about what is being done about the monuments and do something yourself.

If we lose this election, steps will be taken the very next day to remove all our monuments. (ie: repeal the monument protection act)

These monuments, along with the graves of our sacred dead, are the last vestiges we still have of our Heritage.  It is not enough to just vote.  We must tell others to register and vote.  We need 10 even 20 thousand votes.  We can do it!  We must over come the carpet bagger votes from Northern Virginia.
Sad to say, Northern Virginia has become nothing but a puddle of ooze overflowing from the Swamp that is Washington, D.C.

It is up to you now.  You must come to this November 7th rally.  You must bring everyone you can.  With victory on November 8th, we can all sing  "Carry me back to Old Virginia."

We have a chance to save the Virginia that our ancestors fought and died for.  We must not fail them.

                           Sic  Semper Tyrannis                               God Save the Commonwealth

Pence warns against 'desire by some to erase parts of our history'

Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday that states should decide whether to remove their Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol, and said he believes more monuments should be built to celebrate those who have helped the U.S. progress.

"I hold the view that it's important that we remember our past and build on the progress that we've made," Pence told Fox News. "[In] the United States Capitol, every state is able to donate two statues to commemorate citizens they want to be remembered in the heart of our government. States can make those decisions."

"What we have to walk away from is the desire by some to erase parts of our history just in the name of some contemporary political cause," he said.

Gamblers are betting on a fairly easy re-election bid for President Trump in 2020

It's still a long way off, but gamblers are betting on a fairly easy re-election bid for President Trump in 2020 against rising Democrats including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and former first lady Michelle Obama.

The gambling site Betonline.ag puts Trump's odds at 5 to 2, the best of over a dozen potential candidates.

What's more, they aren't betting for Trump to be impeached or lose his Twitter account.
However, bettors are hedging, picking Vice President Mike Pence as their second favorite in the 2020 presidential race.

"Trump is currently a 5/2 favorite to win. Mike Pence (6/1) and Elizabeth Warren (10/1) are close behind with Michelle Obama and Bernie Sanders both sitting at 16/1 odds to win. [Sen.] Kamala Harris and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg are now listed at 20/1. [House Speaker] Paul Ryan is 28/1," the betting website told Secrets.

The Ten Causes Of The War Between The States

Map of the Confederacy

Repost NamSouth 2010

 Historians have long debated the causes of the war and the Southern perspective differs greatly from the Northern perspective. Based upon the study of original documents of the War Between The States (Civil War) era and facts and information published by Confederate Veterans, Confederate Chaplains, Southern writers and Southern Historians before, during, and after the war, I present the facts, opinions, and conclusions stated in the following article.

Technically the 10 causes listed are reasons for Southern secession. The only cause of the war was that the South was invaded and responded to Northern aggression.

I respectfully disagree with those who claim that the War Between the States was fought over slavery or that the abolition of slavery in the Revolutionary Era or early Federal period would have prevented war. It is my opinion that war was inevitable between the North and South due to complex political and cultural differences. The famous Englishman Winston Churchill stated that the war between the North and South was one of the most unpreventable wars in history. The Cause that the Confederate States of America fought for (1861-1865) was Southern Independence from the United States of America. Many parallels exist between the War for American Independence (1775-1783) and the War for Southern Independence.

There were 10 political causes of the war (causes of Southern Secession) ---one of which was slavery--- which was a scapegoat for all the differences that existed between the North and South. The Northern industrialists had wanted a war since about 1830 to get the South's resources (land-cotton-coal-timber-minerals) for pennies on the dollar. All wars are economic and are always between centralists and decentralists. The North would have found an excuse to invade the South even if slavery had never existed.

A war almost occurred during 1828-1832 over the tariff when South Carolina passed nullification laws. The U.S. congress had increased the tariff rate on imported products to 40% (known as the tariff of abominations in Southern States). This crisis had nothing to do with slavery. If slavery had never existed --period--or had been eliminated at the time the Declaration of Independence was written in 1776 or anytime prior to 1860 it is my opinion that there would still have been a war sooner or later.

On a human level there were 5 causes of the war--New England Greed-New England Radicals--New England Fanatics--New England Zealots--and New England Hypocrites. During "So Called Reconstruction" ( 1865-1877 ) the New England Industrialists got what they had really wanted for 40 years--THE SOUTH'S RESOURCES FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR. It was a political coalition between the New England economic interests and the New England fanatics and zealots that caused Southern secession to be necessary for economic survival and safety of the population.

Voters Side With Trump on Monuments

Americans agree with President Donald Trump's defense of Confederate monuments, and few think getting rid of the statues will lessen racial tensions, a new poll shows.

The Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday found 50 percent of registered voters agree with Trump's tweet it is "sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments."
According to the survey, 37 percent disagree with the tweet and 12 percent are undecided.
On whether removal of the monuments will help race relations, 28 percent believe it will – but 39 percent think removal will only hurt relations. Twenty-six percent say removal would not have any impact.
Rasmussen also found 43 percent of black Americans and 42 percent of other minority voters are more likely than whites, at 38 percent, to think removal will only hurt relations.

You Are Not Forgotten

When I decided to paint this picture, I wondered if this was taking it too far.  But, sometimes you have to speak forcefully, like the brushstrokes of my painting.

Many Americans have felt forgotten by the establishment in Washington. I’m talking about the people who are more interested in themselves, and their political careers.

How many veterans have been neglected? How many of our police officers have been marginalized? How many families are suffering because of poor healthcare, limited opportunities, and government intrusion?

Last year we elected President Trump. He expressed by his words and demeanor what Americans wanted - a man who was not going to bow down to Washington or other countries. A man that would not forget the “forgotten men and women” of this country who elected him.

I want a president that will crush the enemies of liberty, justice, and American prosperity.

They may have the power to bruise his heal, but he will have the power to crush their head!

Ruby Ridge

Randall and Vicki Weaver and their children wanted nothing more than to be left to live an isolated life in peace in their cabin enclave on a northern Idaho mountaintop called Ruby Ridge. Untrusting of the federal government and of the belief society had taken an insurmountable turn for the worse, the Weavers — as many residents in the remote and breathtaking area — taught their children to be self-sufficient and defend themselves with firearms from unwanted intrusions onto the family’s property.

But the Weaver’s seemingly idyllic life came to an appallingly violent end over several hours from August 21 to 22, 1992, in a horrendously botched federal raid that would also profoundly alter perceptions about the U.S. government in the minds of even ordinary Americans.

AP-III was correct in doing so.

It was a complete shit show.

Ken made the call to pull the plug about an hour early for security reasons, ie there wasn't any.  Those on the band stand (Free Speech) numbered about 40.  They were outnumbered 1000 to 1.  The crowds were closing on them and BPD was not going to be able to stop them.   They coordinated with BPD, who then EVAC'd them in vans to a safe location.  Vans were attacked en route out of area (pounded on, hit, etc - but not disabled)

There was a large contingent of violent "counter protesters" mainly BLM & ANTIFA, but the bulk of the crowd was ordinary Moonbats who of course do not believe in Free Speech.

The rally had nothing to do with White Supremacy  or Nazis or whatever, but simply to stand for Free Speech for ALL.

I did not go into Boston, as it went down about as I expected...  I had monitored on Zello app, MAOK channel.   I can be found on .....................  It is a pretty good secondary COMS option.

A Warning to Trump and the Nation

Via Iver

 http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/jojo7.png

The coup against President Trump has been developing for months and can be seen on the nightly news. Yet few talk about what it really means for the country and what can be done to avert this fate.

Fortunately, we have the bulwark of the Constitution and protracted process inherent in the rule of law. But the urgency and clarity of mind to prevail and prevent the ouster of the President can certainly be heightened by grasping the goals and temperament of the power brokers who seek his destruction and the subsequent reordering of the country.

Suffice it to say that removal of Trump without sufficient cause would likely have dramatic and lasting repercussions. At a minimum, the power brokers involved in a successful coup would feel entitled to a big role in reordering the nation. At the other end of the spectrum, a more dramatic maximum type response could come in the form of a civil uprising of armed constituencies that voted for Trump, who might well feel there is no other recourse from the fundamental betrayal of the ballot box and disenfranchisement by their government.

If You Could Only Own One Rifle: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle .450 Bushmaster — Full Review

 

Ammo is expensive.

I don’t usually put much stock in marketing slogans, but in this case, I think Ruger nailed it. Their new Gunsite Scout Rifle in .450 Bushmaster is a fantastic all-around firearm, offering the power to take down large game and the maneuverability to carry in the thickest brush.

The .450 Bushmaster is one of three “thumper” rounds most commonly chambered in the AR-15 platform (the .458 SOCOM and the .50 Beowulf complete the trio). The quest for the perfect AR-15 cartridge is ongoing, but that hasn’t stopped manufacturers from implementing these powerful rounds in other platforms.

Ruger currently offers two models chambered in .450 Bushmaster: an iteration of their American Ranch series and the one I tested, the Gunsite Scout.

Atlantic: The Eclipse is Racist, Solar System has Implicit Bias

Can't make this crap up.

Stop watching the eclipse. It's racist.

If you want evidence that the American leftist cult has reached a point of fanatical unreason every bit as bad as the darkest of dark ages, here's a sentence from the Atlantic's piece on the eclipse.
On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people. Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system.

His brand is the title sponsor of the truck racing series, while its subsidiary Overton’s has sponsored multiple races and cars this season. With that in mind, NASCAR chairman Brian France — a vocal Donald Trump supporter — might want to watch his words. Amid the flood of CEOs rushing to distance themselves from Trump after the U.S. president’s wishy-washy denunciation of white supremacy last weekend, Lemonis issued some of the harshest remarks yet. In an appearance Wednesday on CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” Lemonis invited people who supported Trump’s comments to shop elsewhere.

Monument madness a leftist cover to crumble America from within

Don’t for one minute think this past week of Charlottesville-tied mayhem has been over a statue of Robert E. Lee.

It’s not. It’s about power, control and the political course our nation will take as we head into the future.

Don’t see the connection? Walk with me.

The clashes in Charlottesville, disgusting as they were — fatal as they proved — were quickly seized upon by a committed far-left that wants nothing more than to A) remove this president from office and B) change the constitutional nature of America’s society for one that’s ruled by whim and mob voice, rather than law and order.

Charlottesville was the perfect confluence of hot emotion and irrefutable evil. The neo-Nazi mindset is ugly and white supremacist beliefs, wicked. The torch-bearing protesters angry at the idea of the whitewashing of history that comes with the removal of the Confederate statue didn’t help their cause by — well, bearing torches.

The Antifa fascists, Black Lives Matter types and communist-socialist-anarchist thugs who came to Charlottesville weren’t exactly innocent players in the clashes that followed; they came to the community with violence on their minds.

Of the estimated 40,000 attendees at the protests that took over Boston Common Saturday, Boston police said 33 were arrested for charges including assault and battery on police officers.

Three people were found wearing ballistic vests, and one of those was armed, Police Commissioner William Evans said. Three people were charged with carrying knives.

Apple goes all in, raising money for $PLC hate group on iTunes

Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, is tying the company he leads to a hate group in what looks like a crude attempt at virtue-signaling.  He wasted no time in emailing company employees and announcing a donation  of one million dollars to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a fundraising machine that has vacuumed up hundreds of millions posing as a foe of racists.

Now Apple is even shilling for the SPLC on iTunes.  Andrew Liptak of the Verge:

A new page appears on the iTunes desktop and mobile storefronts, and can be found under the New Music, Hot Tracks, and Recent Releases sections. Users can donate in $5, $`0, $25, $50, $100, and $200 increments.

The Ugly Truth about MSM coverage of Charlottesville.

 

Via Mike"Antifa and Black Lives Matter are disgraceful organizations, but the biggest and most disgusting disgraces may be the leadership of Charlottesville city government and the mainstream media. Even Fox has been disappointing"


The pogrom unleashed following the Charlottesville event is now sweeping over the Right/Conservative blogosphere (including us) on an unprecedented scale. Silicon Valley moguls (whose ancestors appear rarely to have been present in America during the Civil War) apparently feel liberated by this protest about the Robert E. Lee statue to abuse their economic power and  interdict political opinions they dislike. This is of course is what happens when power is shifted to groups not truly sharing the heritage of the historic American nation.

What actually  happened at Charlottesville is crucial to evaluating the response. Righteous Liberal Professor Norm Matloff has  shrewdly suspected that CNN has mislead him on the matter. Because of the wonder of cell phone cameras and the internet the truth is readily available outside the MSM. Here is a brief compendium of what some of the sources I have found valuable have reported. (Look at them quickly: the way things are going they will all be shut down in a few days.)

Shattering the Narrative: The Charlottesville Timeline

Via Mike

Today, they come for Robert E. Lee. Tomorrow, they come for George Washington. Today, they come for you and I. Tomorrow, they come for our children. Rise up, brothers and sisters, and defend your country, your nation, your people, your history and your heritage, before all is lost. 
The Mainstream Media has perpetuated an entirely false narrative regarding the events of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Not only have they distorted the events that *did* occur, they have also criminalized everyone involved on the right wing by manufacturing information and fabricating events that did *not* occur. This is the factually reinforced timeline of what occurred regarding the preceding events, climactic point, and subsequent events of the Unite the Right rally.

After the “Unite the Right” free speech rally(a rally organized by activist Jason Kessler), obtained a permit, the City Manager Maurice Jones unlawfully revoked the permit, stating that the event was advocating white supremacy. Setting aside the fact that the demand for a permit to assemble in a public place is unconstitutional under the first amendment which guarantees the ability for the American Citizenry to speak, assemble and protest, this permit was unreasonably revoked, and the city demanded that the protest be moved to an alternative location, namely McIntire park. Wes Bellamy, the vice mayor of Charlottesville, also spoke out against the event, attributing it to white supremacists and the most radical of right wingers. It has been confirmed that Bellamy is associated with the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter, thus indicating an inherent bias. If this was not sufficient, however, a permit was granted to Antifa and BLM to protest the event within the surrounding area. 



PBS, NPR Bury Their Own Poll Results on BLM, Antifa, and Confederate Statues

Taxpayer-funded PBS and NPR are now in the polling business with Marist College, and like the other networks, their polls are often used to support putting heat on Republicans. On Wednesday, they announced they had found a majority of Americans were disappointed with the president’s responsive to the violence in Charlottesville. PBS then ignored their own finding that 62 percent favored leaving Confederate statues in place, while only 27 percent want them removed. NPR reported it once, and then insisted that had nothing to do with Charlottesville.

Buried in the weeds: They also asked if Americans approve or disapprove of Black Lives Matter: 50 percent disapproved, and only 33 percent approved. They even asked about approval of Antifa, but few had heard of them yet: Five percent approved, 24 percent disapproved, 18 percent said they had no opinion either way, and 53 percent were unsure. But if the results don't fit....you must omit?

A total eclipse of SANITY: America under the spell of mass hysteria engineered by a dangerous, globalist-controlled media

The Left has become a kind of “zombie force” of delusional, enraged, intolerant bigots and racists — exactly what they claim to oppose — while somehow imagining that their violent actions aren’t violent at all.

In the minds of the enraged Left, mass murder is now justified because they tell themselves they’re “stopping the Nazis.” Yet, ironically, they have become the Fourth Reich themselves, carrying out precisely the kind of hate-filled violence that Hitler’s Brown Shirts once achieved to accelerate Hitler’s rise to power.

This isn’t hyperbole, either: The hysterical Left is quite literally hallucinating almost everything they now believe: That all Trump supporters are Hitler-saluting Nazis; that all White people are racists; that America is still a slave-ownership nation; that Civil War statues might come to life and put them all back in chains, and other absurdities.

Dilbert Creator Shreds Trump Haters With Single Succinct Summation

That was the succinct summation offered over the weekend by Scott Adams, the cartoonist who draws the Dilbert comic strip and an outspoken conservative who holds court regularly on the interwebs, often on Periscope.

In the back story, President Trump, deemed a white supremacist by his critics (and even the mainstream media), took to Twitter over the weekend to get past the media filter to make clear how he feels about the racial strife being hyped daily in newspapers and cable news shows.

The ugly history of Camp Logan: Century-old mutiny at Houston military site was rooted in racism, buried for years

Via 4 Branch

The full caption for this item is as follows: Largest Murder Trial in the History of the United States. Scene during Court Martial of 64 members of the 24th Infantry United States of America on trial for mutiny and murder of 17 people at Houston, Texas August 23, 1917. Trial held in Gift Chapel Fort Sam Houston. The Houston Riot of 1917, or Camp Logan Riot, was a mutiny by 156 African American soldiers of the Third Battalion of the all-black Twenty-fourth United States Infantry. It occupied most of one night, and resulted in the deaths of four soldiers and sixteen civilians. The rioting soldiers were tried at three courts-martial. A total of nineteen would be executed, and forty-one were given life sentences. Photo: Buyenlarge, Getty Images / Archive Photos

Around 2 a.m. on a sticky August night in 1917, a 35-year old Army sergeant named Vida Henry sat exhausted and bleeding by the Southern Pacific railroad tracks just west of downtown Houston. As he watched his men slowly melt into the darkness, the first steps of a long trudge toward a dubious future, there was only one task remaining.

For the previous five hours, Henry had led the soldiers of I  Company on a march through town with a single objective - retribution. Now it was done. Houston stood awash in blood and fear, with more than two dozen bodies in the streets, the morgue and local hospitals.

None of this was imaginable a month earlier when the Third Battalion of the 24th Infantry rolled into the city. But Henry watched it build day by day, the anger that finally boiled over on a rainy Thursday afternoon. His African-American soldiers absorbed the abusive treatment by white citizens, especially &the police, until the moment they decided not to. He saw the fury in their eyes as they raised their rifles.

(Yeah, yeah, they’re soggy. So what?)

I’ve written before about the Left’s tactic of infiltrating institutions and corrupting them to its purposes. While no institution is outside the Left’s scope, its priority targets are institutions that support communication, education, and entertainment: the arteries of public information and knowledge. Once the Left has gained control over such an institution – usually by weight of numbers within its ranks – it uses that control to “enhance” outputs that favor it and suppress outputs that disfavor it. That’s how the Fabian socialists gained control of Britain’s Labour Party and, eventually, of Britain itself.

The explosion of the Internet was a major blow to the American Left. It was a bypass of the established media that funneled unfiltered, unbiased information and arguments to the consumer. It promised to do more damage to the Left’s totalitarian program than talk radio ever had or could.

When the Web became effectively bidirectional, such that the proprietors of Websites could solicit comments from their readers, it was plain to the Left’s strategists that “something must be done.” But what?

The “what” has surfaced, and it’s not pretty:

And he has a clear view across the street, where a stone monument on the county courthouse lawn honors Confederate soldiers in this town of about 4,500 about two hours southwest of Fort Worth.

“These brave men” the engraving reads, “suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all and facing death carried the banners of the Confederacy.”

In an interview with The Washington Post on Saturday, Bannon said that Republican leaders in Congress and the White House will be "one big happy family" if the GOP falls in line behind the president — but that he doesn't expect that to happen.

“If the Republican Party on Capitol Hill gets behind the president on his plans and not theirs, it will all be sweetness and light, be one big happy family,” Bannon told the Post. Bannon added that he doesn't expect any "sweetness" anytime soon.

Trump's Approval Rating Little Changed Since Charlottesville

 https://timedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/gettyimages-831369982.jpeg

Obama got down into the high thirties with all the press on his side, so Trump's rating is truly remarkable considering all who are against him.  As someone said 'he's best when his back is against the wall'.  It also shows that the people basically agree with Trump blaming both sides. Must be driving his opposition crazy.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-seven percent (57%) disapprove. 
The latest figures include 26% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 48% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22. (see trends).
Despite the media furor over what the president did and did not say following last weekend's incident in Virginia, his approval ratings appear little changed.

"The idea of trying to create crimes just because we disagree with [Trump] politically, and target him, really endangers democracy.

"[This is] where things happen in darkness and secrecy. The American public doesn't learn about it," he said, accusing the investigators of not sharing information with the public. "This exactly the wrong way to approach the problem of Russia’s attempt to influence American election. We do not know what is going on. We get leaks, but the leaks are selective leaks."
