Fake News and Fake History

The “Fake News” appellation has been applied to just about every outlet that presents itself as something on the order of a news outlet, manned (yes–the word) by what are christened as journalists. The ill-use of the “J-Word” provides enough tidings for an essay a yard and a half long, but that is another write for another day (Charly Reese is missed).

A good choice is One America News for television. It also serves as a morning newspaper since the old paper print (many loved getting up in the morning with coffee and the newspaper once-upon-a-time) has suffered from the overwhelming competition of the electronic world. OAN does seems to focus on news items and minimizes the guest spot with all the chatter and concomitant opinions.

Opinions in the morning are fine (and there is no point in even criticizing the usual media suspects—MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS– frontal lobe surgery would not help or hurt) but the one channel that states a desire to be fair (and balanced) has enough stumbling blocks to damage but not eliminate it from some measure of information. Its weakness is in its efforts to provide current news drawing from historical “facts.” However, its historians never have met a primary source they like, or put in context. Something like a Rush Limbaugh/Victor Davis Hanson throw-together.

A case in point is the morning “Fox and Friends,” with it’s trio of voices cultivating the present fields of neoconservatism’s breeding ground of pseudo historians.

Tucker Carlson on Activist Corporations: ‘There’s Nothing Free About This Market,’ Corporate America Enables ‘Progressive Lunacy’

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson explained how corporate America was using the social welfare safety net to subsidize at taxpayer expense its employees without having to pay a higher wage.

According to Fox News host, the top earners at those companies were raking in billions while those they hire have to receive government assistance to get by.

Transcript as follows:
Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, is worth about $150 billion. That’s enough to make him the richest man in the world, by far, and possibly the richest person in human history. It’s certainly enough to pay his employees well. But he doesn’t. A huge number of Amazon workers are so poorly paid, they qualify for federal welfare benefits. According to data from the nonprofit group New Food Economy, nearly one in three Amazon employees in Arizona, for example, was on food stamps last year. Jeff Bezos isn’t paying his workers enough to eat, so you made up the difference with your tax dollars. Next time you see Bezos, make sure he says thank you.

From Trump to Kobach: How the Populists and American Union Workers Are Taking Back the GOP

 BEDMINSTER TOWNSHIP, NJ - NOVEMBER 20: (L to R) President-elect Donald Trump and Kris Kobach, Kansas secretary of state, pose for a photo following their meeting with president-elect at Trump International Golf Club, November 20, 2016 in Bedminster Township, New Jersey. Trump and his transition team are in the process …

American union worker support for populist-nationalist Republicans may have started with President Trump, but it’s not ending with him as many in the pundit class had predicted.

In 2015, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told Chuck Todd in the midst of the Republican primary for president that “probably every” union worker in the United States said “Amen!” when Trump spoke about the crippling impact multinational free trade deals have had on American workers.

At the time, Trump was the only Republican in the GOP primary noting how free trade deals like NAFTA, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and KORUS had and would continue to kill jobs in the U.S. and send them overseas to foreign countries.

Left behind by these free trade deals, Trump said, were American workers who had been ignored by the free trade apparatus of the Republican and Democratic Party who were beholden to the big business lobby, tech lords, and the Chamber of Commerce.

Private Security Hired to Protect Monuments in Charlottesville & Richmond

Earlier this week, we announced that we had contracted with private security to help protect the Lee & Jackson monuments in Charlottesville this weekend and asked for sponsors to help cover the costs.

The Neo-Marxists who were behind the riot and monument destruction at UNC have been linked to the monument destruction in Durham, and Antifa-led riots in Charlottesville. Their goal is to use their “success” in North Carolina to encourage and teach others to do the same across the South.

Silent Sam To Be Moved

Chancellor Folt will work with the campus community, alumni, governing bodies and many others to develop a plan for the Confederate Monument that will be presented to the Board of Governors by Nov. 15.

As you head into the Labor Day weekend, I ask you to think about an opportunity that has opened for us. I am very grateful because it may help us move toward healing and peace from a place of conflict and disharmony.

The Confederate Monument, known as Silent Sam, has been a focus of conflict for many decades. As the intensity of that conflict has accelerated, it has become apparent to all that the monument, displayed where it was, is extremely divisive and a threat to public safety, and the day-to-day mission of the University. More fundamentally, the disputes around the monument are about deeply rooted and profound struggles of race, inclusion, history and honor that our entire country needs to resolve. 

We see that those conflicts and the need for their resolution are as strong as ever, even with the statue toppled from its base.

Former East German Communists Training, Guiding Democratic Socialists of America

Via David

The United States’ largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), is being trained—and guided—by an extremely well-funded network of “former” East German communists. Many of these German communists were documented informants for the notorious former East German intelligence service: the Stasi.

At over 49,000 members—and growing fast—DSA has exploded from an obscure political sect only two years ago to a major force in the increasingly radical American left. DSA is on the verge of electing members Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress and is behind dozens of other DSA members and “fellow travelers” to lesser offices.

History as a (Leftist) Weapon


There is a tendency for each generation to assume its opinions are the ultimate correct opinions. But each generation’s beliefs are typically modified by succeeding generations. Unfortunately, societal structures are sometimes altered based on contemporary notions that lose credence over time. This is the case with Social Justice Warriors in this generation. They demand that whatever doesn’t suit present-day social theories must be “eliminated.”

One of the justifications for this cultural cleansing is this generation’s historical interpretation of the War Between the States (WBTS). Some assume that this current version – moral opposition to slavery caused the North to fight the South – has a long-standing consensus among historians. But this is only one of countless interpretations historians have produced over the years. Various historians, writing at different times and places, have created diverse interpretations of the WBTS. These history reinterpretations are often influenced by major events occurring in later generations.

The Left Is The New Joseph McCarthy

President Donald Trump recently commented on social media companies hiding conservative stories on their platforms and focused on Google's search results specifically. Andrew Klavan thinks this is a great move, and talked about why on Wednesday's episode of "The Andrew Klavan Show."

“Google search, especially as you come into an election — they don't care after the election, after November they'll be happy to kind of make it fairer. YouTube of course we have problems with, YouTube every day they demonetize our videos and they say how controversial they are, but they don't do it to the Young Turks, and they don't take them down,” Klavan said. “If I use material from an entertainment source they will cut us down, they'll say ‘oh you violated copyright.’ They never do it to the left, and they rely on these groups that hate conservatives to do their fact-checking for them, like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. These are all guys who think that we are hateful because we believe in the Constitution, and because we believe in Liberty.”

Judge Hanen Says DACA Likely Illegal


Federal District Judge Andrew Hanen issued a ruling on Friday that denies a request from eight states, led by Texas, to temporarily halt the Obama-era DACA executive amnesty. But Judge Hanen did indicate in his decision that he will likely rule that the program is illegal.
"This Court by separate order has found that the Plaintiff States have shown a likelihood of success on the merits of their claim that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ("DACA") program is contrary to the Administrative Procedures Act ("APA"). The Court also found that the Plaintiff States had made a clear showing of irreparable injury."

Silent Sam and the Recurrence To Fundamental Principles

 Image result for silent sam

By Philip Van Horn

The statue and monument to the students of the University of North Carolina, who served North Carolina in the cause of the Confederacy, has been much on the minds of many lately, first with mere attempts at removal, and finally with the actual toppling by a mob. Silent Sam has been subject of derision and controversy for some time, going back at least 50 years. The mob, aided and abetted by the University administration, student government, and Chapel Hill Town Hall, whipped itself into a frenzy, and rioted in Sam's quiet corner of the campus. He was defenseless!

Raucous debates on college campus have become the norm of late under mob rule, with riots breaking out over speeches that are increasingly not heard because threats of violence halt speech before it can be given. West coast schools are becoming famous for shutting down free speech, particularly when the speakers suffer the taint of conservative inclination. But when loud and lively speech becomes wanton acts of vandalism against property, a line is crossed, and an injury has occurred and must be addressed.

Comment on "DEVELOPMENT SHOULD KILL THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION?": "Anybody notice some similarities here?"


 Image result for “Heinrich Mueller
“Heinrich Mueller was the Gestapo operations chief. He answered to Heydrich; Heydrich answered only to Himmler and Himmler answered only to Hitler.
The Gestapo had the authority to investigate cases of treason, espionage, sabotage and criminal attacks on the Nazi Party and Germany. The basic Gestapo law passed by the government in 1936 gave the Gestapo carte blanche to operate without judicial review—in effect, putting it above the law.
The Gestapo was specifically exempted from responsibility to administrative courts, where citizens normally could sue the state to conform to laws. As early as 1935, a Prussian administrative court had ruled that the Gestapo's actions were not subject to judicial review. The SS officer Werner Best, one-time head of legal affairs in the Gestapo, summed up this policy by saying, "As long as the police carries out the will of the leadership, it is acting legally.” Wiki.

The Big Blue Immigration Wave: Crashing Short of Democrat Victory in 2018?


On August 25, Rasmussen Reports released a new poll showing that the generic Congressional preference ballot for likely voters in November was dead even with Democrats and Republicans tying 44 to 44 percent with 8 percent undecided and 3 percent preferring other parties. A week ago the Democrats held a 48 to 41 percent lead on the generic ballot. Moreover, the President’s approval rating is not suffering despite the mainstream media’s constant barrage of dishonest attacks against him.

The immigration wave is the only hope the Democrats have for the November 2018 election and the foreseeable future. They have gone so radically far off the social, economic, cultural, national security, public safety, and foreign policy track that their primary strategic plan has become the importation of huge waves of poorly informed voters who will buy into their disinformation demagoguery long enough to make the U.S. a one party Marxist dictatorship.

DOJ's Bruce Ohr kept Mueller deputy 'in the loop' about anti-Trump dossier

 Demoted DOJ official grilled by lawmakers, says FBI doubted Trump dossier for FISA warrant. Fox News contributor and former U.S. attorney, Andrew McCarthy, gives his take on Ohr's testimony.

Embattled Justice Department official Bruce Ohr had contact in 2016 with then-colleague Andrew Weissmann, who is now a top Robert Mueller deputy, as well as other senior FBI officials about the controversial anti-Trump dossier and the individuals behind it, two sources close to the matter told Fox News.

The sources said Ohr's outreach about the dossier – as well as its author, ex-British spy Christopher Steele; the opposition research firm behind it, Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS; and his wife Nellie Ohr's work for Fusion – occurred before and after the FBI fired Steele as a source over his media contacts. Ohr's network of contacts on the dossier included: former FBI agent Peter Strzok; former FBI lawyer Lisa Page; former deputy director Andrew McCabe; Weissmann and at least one other DOJ official; and a current FBI agent who worked with Strzok on the Russia case.

“George will take responsibility for some inaccuracies during the interview with the FBI. I hope though that the judge will take into account the irrelevance of those ‘inaccuracies’ at the purposes of the investigation and the lack of ‘criminal intention,'” she said in a statement.

She had hinted about the possibility of the withdrawal of his guilty plea of making false statements to the FBI, after new information surfaced that suggested he was potentially set up by the FBI. He is set to be sentenced on September 7.

Russia deploys 25 WARSHIPS to Med amid fears of US attack on Syria

 Russian ships

Russia’s defence ministry announced the deployment of the vessels – along with at least 30 warplanes including long range bombers – amid rising tensions with the US.

Moscow has accused the US of planning to attack Syria, alleging a chemical attack will be staged in bid to bring them into the war against dictator Bashar al-Assad.

Vladimir Putin’s latest announcement comes following the arrival of ten Russian warships and two submarines in the region – which was already the largest Russian deployment of its kind since the start of the Syrian Civil War.

City to pursue litigation to determine who owns Civil War property on the Square

Via Billy

At the BOMA meeting Tuesday the United Daughters Confederacy opposed, through their attorney, a proposal that would bring four additional Civil War markers, depicting the history of slavery in Franklin, to the grassy small public park where the Civil War monument of a Confederate soldier, nicknamed Chip, stands.
The 120-year old UDC organization claims that they own the land where Chip stands and therefore should have a say in rejecting the marker proposal brought forth by three preachers and a historian earlier this month. 

After controversy arose at the Franklin Board of Mayor and Alderman meeting over who owns the property on which the unnamed Civil War monument “Chip” stands, the aldermen voted to pursue a lawsuit to determine ownership.

"The lingering uncertainty over who owns the land on the square was the catalyst for this lawsuit," said Dana McLendon, 2nd Ward, after the unanimous vote.

BOMA's decision allows city attorney Shauna Billingsley to pursue a declaratory judgement, a specific type of lawsuit to adjudicate the rights and privileges of concerned parties, on ownership of the land.

American Hero H.K. Edgerton Schools The Left On Confederate History

American patriot H.K. Edgerton stood beside the destroyed remnants of the “Silent Sam” Confederate statue in Chapel Hill, North Carolina Wednesday with a Confederate flag to protest the destruction of Southern American history.

Edgerton, the former Asheville, N.C. chapter president of the NAACP, delivered an eloquent defense of the statue, which was torn down in an Antifa riot in which the University of North Carolina was clearly complicit. Edgerton explained how the Confederate military was integrated and spoke of the numerous black heroes who fought and gave their lives at war — black heroes who used to be honored by Silent Sam, but are honored no longer due to Antifa’s criminal actions.

Right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders has canceled a planned ‘draw Muhammad’ cartoon contest in the Netherlands after Islamic terrorists threatened to attack the event.

The announcement follows a threat by a Pakistani Muslim who posted a video to Facebook vowing to assassinate Wilders before he was arrested.

“The threats resulting from the cartoon contest are running out of control,” Wilders said in a statement posted to Twitter. “Now other people are in danger because of extremist Muslims who see not only me but the Netherlands as a target.”

“If innocent people are murdered then they and no one else are responsible. To avoid the risk of victims from Islamic violence, I have decided to cancel the cartoon competition,” he added.

 How The Pederasty Cover-Up Will Make Civil War Within The Catholic Church

Sixteen years ago, reporters at The Boston Globe conducted an extensive investigation of the sexual abuse of minors by priests in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston. Not long thereafter, reporters elsewhere detailed similar abuse in places like Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and the like. The word used in the press to describe what had been going on was pedophilia, which is a misnomer deliberately employed to cover up what journalists then considered and still consider now an inconvenient aspect of the truth.

Someone sent me, via email, while I’m still able to get stuff, a picture from
a photo showing the police “surrounding” the Silent Sam statue as it lay on the ground after having been pulled down by a gang of Marxist vandals.

I found it rather ironic. The police waited to “surround” the statue until after the Marxist goons had ruined it. While they were in the process of doing their damage the cops just stood down and let them accomplish their mayhem. Undoubtedly, anyone who had tried to stop them from completing their destruction would have been arrested.

The scheme from Bruce Ohr and Comey's confederates to clear Clinton, damage Trump

 Image result for The scheme from Bruce Ohr and Comey's confederates to clear Clinton, damage Trump

Director James Comey knew the FBI was incorruptible. This is precisely why he seized control of the investigation of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email practices covering her time as secretary of state, instead of allowing the FBI field office to conduct the probe.

By commandeering control of the investigation, Comey and his confederates could twist the facts and contort the law to dictate the outcome they desired. Clinton was the beneficiary of what FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reportedly described as the “HQ special.”

20 Snapshots of Saigon in 1969 by George Lane


With every uncovered archive of old photos, we come closer and closer to reconstructing a complete tapestry of life in past eras.

The city that we know today as Ho Chi Minh City used to only consist of central District 1 and parts of Cho Lon. As time flies and Saigon’s population expands, more areas are added to the town’s official map. For instance, Phu My Hung in District 7 didn’t even exist until the late 1990s while Tan Phu District was only separated from Tan Binh District in 2003.

In this collection of images, taken by an American, George Lane, we get a gander at Saigon—both old and new. There are downtown landmarks that many might recognize like the Opera House or the Lam Son Square, but also austerity and featureless shanty towns that only started to undergo development in recent years.

Have a look at Saigon in 1969.
