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.
