There's no Playing nice with Antifa + E-mail to New Orleans Traitorous Mayor & Why


There's no playing nice with Antifa

So now St. Joan of Arc is an oppressor of minorities, even though she never met or interacted with any.

For today's email, let me share the comments of my friend Larry Beane, pastor of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Gretna, Louisiana.

Savages in New Orleans vandalized the St. Joan of Arc statue last night. It is a beautiful guilded equestrian work of public art given to the city by her elder-sister namesake Orleans, France.

The current attack on our monuments by communist thugs is being embraced and stoked by the Democrat mayor and the Democrat city council -- and their complicit allies in the local media -- with tacit approval of the Democrat governor who will not support a state monument protection act (as has been enacted or is being enacted in other states).

Defenders of our monuments have been threatened, attacked, and physically assaulted by Antifa thugs while the NOPD look on, like a cow observing a new barn door, allegedly under orders to do nothing. The mayor -- who seems to be in a bit of hot water himself -- blames the peaceful multiracial crowd that gathered at the monument in vigil.

The narrative is that our historical monuments are racist - in spite of the fact that most of them honor military heroes who defended the city of New Orleans from invasion, and who after the war, were leaders of a society in need of rebuilding, forces for national reconciliation, and advocates for minority civil rights.

But St. Joan of Arc had nothing to do with anything racial. She likely never met a single black person in her entire short life.

Her 'crime' according to Antifa and the apparatchiks of identity politics is that she was white and Christian. Remember the chant at liberal colleges and universities: "Hey hey! Ho ho! Western Civilization has got to go!" and the rejection of the 'canon' of our western intellectual tradition?

That's what this is all about.

These attacks are intended to rewrite our history and tear down Western civilization: its history and heroes and symbols, its liberal intellectual tradition, its Christian ethical backbone, its emphasis on individual rights such as speech and conscience, its contribution of limited government and its libertarian streak, its capitalist economics, etc.

The Communist revolutionary experiment was an unmitigated disaster in Eastern Europe and the former USSR. So now the poison is being spread to our country, to historically illiterate young people largely born after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

This isn't about monuments.

The best construction is that our politicians are magnificently stupid and nearsighted, for the alternative explanation is far more horrifying.

E-mail to New Orleans traitorous mayor


I really hope you are proud of yourself!!!  While my family and friends are in NO trying to protect our history and heritage, they were beaten, sprayed with paint, spit upon, suffered wounds from bottles and rocks being thrown yet the police were told to stand down!!  There is video tape to prove this accusation should you care to view it.

What kind of mayor/leader allows violent attacks by anarchist's who hate our country that have been bussed in and paid to commit total destruction?  They have no idea, nor do they care what the are fighting for except a paycheck from corrupt anti American politician's with deep pockets.

Yes, you can pat yourself on the back for ordering the destruction of our American memorial's and monument's. However that is the least of your worries now. You have created an intolerant terrorist atmosphere where NO ONE will want to visit New Orleans. A boycott is already in the works, I for one will never step foot in NO again.

Tell me..... is turning your back on your people /voter's while pandering for votes worth your reputation and legacy ?  You are a shameful human being that would sell his soul to the devil for even one vote!

More cities offering to pay legal defense for illegal immigrants

Sacramento became the latest city this week to go above and beyond ‘sanctuary’ policies by approving the use of taxpayer dollars to support the legal defense of illegal immigrants facing deportation.

The City Council voted unanimously Thursday night to draw $300,000 from the general fund to “provide urgent legal and support services to Sacramento families facing the immediate threat of separation due to deportation.”

The plan, backed by the mayor, fits a trend of local and state lawmakers taking similar action. As the Trump administration separately faces a court setback in its bid to cut off federal funds to sanctuary cities, those jurisdictions are only doubling down.

In French election, voters face a choice that mirrors the West’s new divide

Via Billy

Ever since Donald Trump proved last November that anything is possible in the topsy-turvy new world of Western politics, May 7 has been circled on European calendars with a mix of giddy anticipation and existential dread.

To right-wing populists, the presidential election in France — a country scarred by unemployment and terrorism — seemed to offer the next big opportunity to remake the postwar global order in their own nationalist, nativist and protectionist image.

Moment of truth for the euro as France votes

The fate of the European Union and the euro could hang on the outcome of Sunday's French presidential election.

The expected victory of centrist, pro-EU candidate Emmanuel Macron would be taken by markets as a sign that political risk in Europe is receding; a surprise win for far-right candidate Marine Le Pen would raise the risk that the euro zone's number two economy could abandon the single currency and even leave the EU.

FCC to investigate, 'take appropriate action' on Colbert’s Trump rant

FCC probing Colbert’s Trump, Putin joke

Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert's controversial joke about President Trump drew the attention of the Federal Communications Commission. The agency received "a number" of complaints about Colbert's commentary earlier in the week, according to the FCC's chief.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai promised to "take the appropriate action" following a comprehensive investigation of Colbert's remarks.

The FCC's response will depend on whether Colbert's remarks are considered "obscene."

"We are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it's been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we'll take the appropriate action," he told Talk Radio 1210 WPHT Thursday.

France: Emmanuel Macron, Useful Idiot of Islamism

Via Mike

  • Emmanuel Macron, a "Useful Infidel," is not a supporter of terrorism or Islamism. It is worse: he does not even see the threat.
  • Louizi's article gave names and dates, explaining how Macron's political movement has largely been infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood militants.
  • Is Macron an open promoter of Islamism in France? It is more politically correct to say that he is a "globalist" and an "open promoter of multiculturalism". As such, he does not consider Islamism a national threat because the French nation, or, as he has said, French culture, does not really exist.

Rep. Tim Ryan proposes relocating parts of the federal government to the rest of the country

Rep. Tim Ryan has a dramatic idea for how to spread some wealth around: Spread the government around.

Hundreds of thousands of federal employees, backed by record-high government spending, have contributed to a regional economy that anyone could envy; the four richest counties in the United States neighbor the nation's capital. So Ryan wants lawmakers to establish a commission that would develop a plan to "decentralize" the federal government, with a particular eye on helping the working-class economies that have suffered the most over the last decade.

WikiLeaks accused National Public Radio of not being a "credible news organization," responding to its reporting on the hacking scandal that hit Emmanuel Macron's campaign less than two days before the French presidential run-off election.

WikiLeaks said in a tweet Saturday that unlike what is written in the NPR report, it did not publish the nine gigabytes of documents stolen from Macron's campaign and placed online Friday.

In Defending Jefferson Davis Arlene Barnum is a Class Act

Via Billy

On April 22, Arlene Barnum’s biggest problem was that she’d worn the wrong petticoat to the Confederate memorial service in Keachi, Louisiana. "I wore the wrong petticoat today," she told me. "This one's too long."  By April 30, that petticoat was the least of her problems.
Arlene Barnum is a sixty-three year old Army veteran and staunch supporter of Confederate history; her ancestors are buried in the Confederate cemetery in Keachi, thus her annual attendance at the memorial service. 
After the memorial service, Arlene heard about Mitch Landrieu’s midnight grab on the Liberty Place monument and knew she had to go to New Orleans to stand guard over the Jefferson Davis monument. With her Confederate battle flag tied to a sturdy crooked stick, she has been standing vigil at the monument since last Thursday and she live streams every moment of it. "I have to document this," she says, "in case something happens."

Meet The Well-Connected, Powerful Elites Who Are Destroying New Orleans

Via comment by skybill  on New Orleans is Ground Zero

 Image result for monuments New Orleans


To residents of New Orleans and the state, Mayor Mitch Landrieu is responsible for the purging of history which will soon take place in the Big Easy, just as the New Orleans City Council approved Landrieu’s plan last week to remove four historical monuments.

Landrieu, though, acts more as a prop it seems when it comes to removing all symbols related to the South and the Confederacy.

During the vote to remove the monuments, New Orleans City Councilwoman Latoya Cantrell said the movement to remove monuments did not come from the ground up, rather it came directly from Landrieu’s office. The monuments were pre-picked by Landrieu and it entirely unclear how the mayor actually chose which monuments should go.

Sources close to the Hayride say Landrieu’s call for monuments to be removed was not simply a reaction to the Charleston AME Church shooting, but rather a well-planned and well-organized demand.

House Passes Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

House Republicans voted today to approve a bill that would defund to Planned Parenthood abortion business.

This was the second attempt to get enough votes on the reconciliation bill that would not only defund the nation’s biggest abortion corporation but also repeal major portions of Obamacare. The first attempt to pass the bill saw liberal Republicans oppose the repealing Obamacare portion and conservative Republicans not happy as well because it did not repeal Obamacare fully. Republican leaders reworked the legislation, called the American Health Care Act, and Republicans passed the measure today despite Democrat objections.
