UN Displays Giant Picture Of Che Guevara in Their Geneva Offices

Jay Nordlinger wrote in National Review:

Who was he? He was an Argentinian revolutionary who served as Castro’s primary thug. He was especially infamous for presiding over summary *executions at La Cabana, the fortress that was his abattoir. He liked to administer the coup de grace, the bullet to the back of the neck. And he loved to parade people past El Paredon, the reddened wall against which so many innocents were killed. Furthermore, he established the labor-camp system in which countless citizens–dissidents, democrats, artists, homosexuals–would suffer and die. This is the Cuban gulag.
A Cuban-American writer, Humberto Fontova, described Guevara as “a combination of Beria and Himmler.”
Anthony Daniels once quipped, “The difference between [Guevara] and Pol Pot was that [the former] never studied in Paris.”

*Some of my military school Cubans returned to fight against Castro. I believe two were killed and one while in custody.

House Democrats explode in recriminations as liberals lash out at moderates & Congress is Broken

House Democrats exploded in recriminations Thursday over moderates bucking the party, with liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatening to put those voting with Republicans "on a list" for a primary challenge.

In a closed-door session, a frustrated Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., lashed out at about two dozen moderates and pressured them to get on board. "We are either a team or we're not, and we have to make that decision," Pelosi said, according to two people present but not authorized to discuss the remarks publicly.

But Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the unquestioned media superstar of the freshman class, upped the ante, admonishing the moderates and indicating that she would help liberal activists unseat them in the 2020 election.

Court to unseal Christopher Steele deposition

Via Billy

The depositions given by former British spy Christopher Steele and a longtime associate of John McCain must be unsealed, a federal judge said Thursday.

U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro overruled the objections of both Steele and David Kramer to make the depositions public. The pair gave testimony in a lawsuit brought against BuzzFeed in December 2018 by a Russian Internet entrepreneur.

The businessman, Aleksej Gubarev, was referenced in the infamous dossier compiled by Steele about President Trump’s alleged connections to Russia. Gubarev objected to BuzzFeed’s publishing of the dossier in January 2017, which accused him of using his companies to hack into computers owned by the Democratic National Committee.

Today a race card was played. But not by Congressman Mark Meadows.

But rather by those on the House Oversight Committee who sadly placed more credence on the word of a self-confessed convicted perjurer, than that of a highly-educated black woman who rose up the ranks of one of the most recognized global real-estate companies in the world, spoke before 25 million people at the Republican National Convention and now successfully oversees the largest HUD program office in the country.

That is not the resume of a prop.

It is, however, the resume of someone who remains completely unfazed by the criticism of others and laser focused.

Today was simply about one longtime employee disputing the testimony of another longtime employee who both know the President extremely well. Period.

Since the release of my viral video in May 2015, those who know me can confirm that my steadfast narrative about the Trump family has not changed.

The only one of us whose narrative has changed is the one facing significant jail time. Period.

My presence today was to remind Michael Cohen that honesty and integrity still matter.

I do not have an NDA.

I do not have a book deal.

What I DO have is the truth on my side.

And when you have that, nothing else matters.

California Refused 5.6K Requests to Turn over Criminal Illegal Aliens to Federal Officials

In this Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017, photo released by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE shows foreign nationals being arrested this week during a targeted enforcement operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at immigration fugitives, re-entrants and at-large criminal aliens in Los Angeles. Immigrant advocates on …

The sanctuary state of California refused 5,600 requests by federal immigration officials over two years to turn over criminal illegal aliens, state data finds.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) Executive Director Dale Wilcox revealed that within a 27-month period, the state of California had failed to honor about 5,600 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers which are the holds ICE agents file to local jails and police to request that an illegal alien be turned over to them for arrest and deportation.

Of these 5,600 failed ICE detainers, more than 3,400 were lodged against an illegal alien who had been classified “level 1” and “level 2” offenders — meaning that these illegal aliens had been charged with crimes like homicide, kidnapping, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, drugs, and fraud.

Comment on Cohen Admits To Speaking with Democratic Party Bef...

Over the last fifteen years or so I have blogged and written a lot. My political writing has decreased over the last half year or so. I still write two or three short articles a day. Just to let off steam. I tried for so long to change minds with facts and common sense. Only to discover neither matter to a liberal. The entire philosophy of the left is built on the concept of Epistemological Relativism. Or in layman terms “Moral Relativism,” meaning there is no right or wrong. 

That is a very seductive concept for many. The idea they are not wrong, just different from the rest. Being a junky strung out on drugs is just as valid as the father of three that works 50-hours a week. Since there is no wrong, whatever behavior you choose is acceptable. 

I could continue with the philosophy of Epistemological Relativism but won’t. This is why liberals defend Islam even though it is opposite everything they believe. They cannot criticize Islam for killing homosexuals, because that would force them to determine Islam is bad. And in their view, nothing is good or bad. 

That was a long-winded way to reach my destination. I have slowed down political writing because there is nothing I, you, or anyone can write that matters to a liberal. It is not about facts or truth, it is about feelings. Because remember everything is relative with no absolute right or wrong. I do not see any peaceable solution. The left has no interest in truth or facts. Only feeling count, not the outcome. There is no discussion possible. This ends in conflict. I cannot see any other outcome at this point. This theater of the absurd in the House only proves my point. A convicted perjurer, with ZERO evidence is the democrat’s “Star” witness. There is no good ending.


Brock, I don’t remember if I saw this here or somewhere else. But it is one of the best explanations of liberalism I have seen.

North Korea Summit Falls Apart. Here’s What Happened.

President Donald Trump walked away from the negotiating table with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Thursday in Vietnam after Kim reportedly demanded that the U.S. lift all economic sanctions on North Korea without first agreeing to any kind of serious commitment to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

"Trump said the summit fell through after the North demanded a full removal of U.S.-led international sanctions in exchange for the shuttering of the North's Yongbyon nuclear facility," Fox News' Gregg Re reported. "Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters that the United States wasn't willing to make a deal without the North committing to giving up its secretive nuclear facilities outside Yongbyon as well as its missile and warheads program."

House votes to notify ICE when illegal immigrants try to buy guns

Republicans scored a rare victory in the Democrat-controlled House Wednesday, winning a vote to have authorities notify deportation officers any time an illegal immigrant tries to buy a gun.

It’s illegal for those in the country without legal status to have firearms, but an average of more than 10 a day try anyway.

Republicans offered an amendment to a broader gun background check bill to have the National Instant Criminal Background Check System report them to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which could then decide if it wants to pick them up for deportation.

Cohen Admits To Speaking with Democratic Party Before Testifying Against Trump

Via Billy



DON'T MISS THIS massive credibility bombshell.

Cohen ADMITS to preparing & coordinating his congressional testimony with:

- The DNC
- Democratic Party leadership
- Chairman Cummings
- Chairman Adam Schiff
- "Various individuals" in the Democratic party

This is a DNC hit job

Michael Cohen, who formerly served as President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, told Congress on Wednesday that he and his team spoke with top Congressional Democrats before his testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Cohen said he spoke with Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming of Maryland, who chairs the committee Cohen spoke to Wednesday, and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee.

Talk Radio vs. The South

Right wing radio personalities need no excuse to engage in South-bashing, but the recent events in the Old Dominion have given them free rein to indulge in their passion non-stop.  Governor Ralph Northam’s perceived hatred of “the other” quickly overshadowed his chilling, matter of fact endorsement of proposed legislation establishing new and ghoulish abortion protocols in his state, and with this development, virtue signaling big talkers on AM, FM and Sirius were off to the races apotheosizing Lincoln and begging questions about Southern history and heritage.

Dem Congressman: The Only Way To End Gun Violence Is To Confiscate Firearms

With House Democrats pushing a gun control bill that will almost certainly die in the Senate on Wednesday, we’re going to have to deal with a trifecta that will lead to nothing more than a giant political headache. We have Russian collusion nonsense going on, Democrats speaking out of both of their mouths of sexual assault, and gun control. To add another level, we have Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Green New Deal nonsense to contend with, even after the projected $93 trillion price tag was unveiled by American Action Forum. So, what’s in this new gun control push? Oh, the usual nonsense, like universal background checks (via USA Today):

OW! Rep. Jody Hice Hammers Democrats for ‘Shameful Mockery’ of Cohen Hearing

Via Billy

“I find the connecting of the dots here with Mr. Davis and you and, frankly, the chairman and perhaps others to be rather stunning,” Hice said. “There is an agenda for all this happening here today. 
“I believe, frankly, that that is to bring the president down, to impugn the president. You (Cohen) made an oath last time you were here, and that oath meant nothing to you then. … 
“But here we are today, our first big hearing, with, as you and we all know, a convicted liar, lying to Congress, a criminal, and I believe this witness is totally incompatible with the stated goal of having to seek the truth in this hearing. 
“This is the first time in the history of Congress we have someone testifying here who has already been convicted of lying to Congress, so congratulations for being the first in Congress to do that. 
“And Mr. Cummings, as well, I can’t believe we have brought this committee to its knees in terms of losing its credibility, and it’s a shameful mockery of what our purpose is.”

Yes, ‘This Is America, 2019’

There have been so far about three general reactions to the concocted Jussie Smollett psychodrama.

One, and the most common, has been apprehension that Smollett’s lies will discredit future real incidents of hate crimes against gays and minorities. This could be a legitimate concern, given the tensions within a multiracial society.

Yet, in fact, there is no evidence in the past that false reports (some lists of such fake hate crimes put the number at around 400) have had such an effect—either on spiking real hate crimes, suppressing reporting, discouraging police investigations, or preventing even more race-crime hoaxes.

As Heather Mac Donald has recently once again noted, the 2017 upswing in reported hate crimes from the prior year may well be largely because an additional 1,000 police agencies were for the first time reporting such crimes. Mac Donald also notes that a “hate crime”—a micro percentage of reported violent crime—is narrowly defined not to include general interracial violent victimization, a category in which African-Americans on average commit 85 percent of such crimes.
