New book offers guide on standing up to the leftist hordes

If you’re a political junkie, you may remember former Virginia House of Delegates member Bob Marshall.  In 2017, his 28-year career in the state legislature was ended by  a transgender Democrat backed by $1.2 million in out-of-state money and an army of out-of-state left-wing activists.

Marshall had been in a  safe GOP seat.  His $300,000 campaign treasury was typically enough to get him into the victory circle on election night.  Not THIS time, though.

The leftist slander machine came after Marshall full-force.  In his book, he recalls seeing 20 activists from the Human Rights Campaign and SIX Planned Parenthood activists on one day in one precinct of his district campaigning for his opponent.

He was a diehard conservative who had dared to poke the leftist hordes.  They were going to swamp him with a  tidal wave and make him pay.

Marshall is a renowned social conservative who also happens to be an alum of North Carolina’s Belmont Abbey College.  In addition to his time in the Virginia legislature, he spent years as an advisor to conservative warrior and former US Rep. Bob Dornan (R-CA).  Yes, believe it or  not, California used to actually send conservatives to Washington.

ARE WE IN A CIVIL WAR ?

Monday, May 28th, 2018

 


A few days ago, Jack Minzey, sent what was to be the final chapter in the long line of books and treatises which he had written.

Jack went to be with the Lord,  on Sunday, 8 April 2018. 

Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein.  His interest in Conservative Politics was exceeded  only  by his intellectual ability.

This is the last of his works:

Civil War

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.  That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.

What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.

That’s a civil war.

UC Berkeley: ‘Hard to defend’ free speech of conservatives who ‘incite’ liberal students

Report concludes campus ‘tolerant’ despite ‘popular narrative’ suggesting otherwise

Photo below:  Graffiti left by protesters who were against a scheduled speaking appearance by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos is seen on Wed, Feb 1, 2017 in Berkeley Calif.  The event was cancelled due to size of crowd and several fires set.

– The Washington Times – Friday, May 4, 2018

A long-awaited report on free speech protections at the University of California, Berkeley, blames “hard to defend” conservative speakers for inciting left-wing students to violence.

A commission of Berkeley faculty, students formed in 2017 after violent and costly student protests called its commitment to free speech into question. Their monthslong study of the issue resulted in the conclusion that “ultra-conservative rhetoric” by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter only exists to “advance a facile narrative that universities are not tolerant of conservative speech.”

“Contrary to a currently popular narrative, Berkeley remains a tolerant campus,” the report says, Politico reported Thursday. “Although those speakers had every right to speak and were entitled to protection, they did not need to be on campus to exercise the right of free speech. Indeed, at least some of the 2017 events at Berkeley can now be seen to be part of a coordinated campaign to organize appearances on American campuses likely to incite a violent reaction.”

ANTIFA, SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER SHUT DOWN FREE SPEECH

Monday, April 16th, 2018

 

CAIR, Southern Poverty Law Center and Antifa joined forces to shut down conferences warning of the danger from the Islamic, Marxist and Fascist groups.  John Guandolo, a well known expert on Islamic terrorism and President of Understanding The Threat, was one of the speakers in these events in Wisconsin and Minnesota last week.   The following article gives you the background information on how these forces are able to shut down free speech in America.    Nancy      

RESTORING LIBERTY

Two prominent Muslims came to witness the event: CAIR-Iowa chapter president Abshir Omar and State Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad. Omar is a Somali Muslim refugee and member of the Democratic Socialists of America who was supported by CAIR in his unsuccessful 2016 bid for Des Moines City Council. Abdul-Samad has been praised by CAIR, and is also a current member of the Black Panther Party’s Des Moines chapter.

Samad was critical of the event’s message, telling WHO TV that the term “jihad” is misunderstood. “The Jihad that we talk about in the Quran, prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said very clearly that the Jihad is the Jihad of an-Nafs, which means the Jihad of self. You’re [sic] Jihad is within you and every religion has a Jihad.”

Asked for a response by WHO TV, Guandolo said, “That’s absolutely not true. In Islam, there’s only one legal definition for Jihad, and that’s warfare against non-Muslims.”

Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim and now Christian apologist who heads the Truth In Love project, was slated to speak at a number of the canceled events. He reacted strongly in a video about the cancellations posted on Saturday:

“Who shut us down folks? The Islamo-Marxist-Fascist oppressors in this nation, the same groups that we’ve been traveling around this nation warning you about…. How did that happen? It started with CAIR… the front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. Then they’ve joined with the Southern Poverty Law Center… Then they got Antifa involved… and we know their M.O. – they’re domestic terrorists… If you think we are living in a free nation any more… that this is the land of the free and home of the brave, we better wake up soon. Religious liberty, the right of assembly, the right of our speech, is gone. This is the M.O. now. This is the tactic they are using to shut us down.”

Antifa groups used information from the Southern Poverty Law Center to successfully shut down four conferences on the threat of Islam scheduled in Wisconsin and Minnesota last weekend.

The hotels slated for the events were flooded with threatening calls, and the organizers voluntarily canceled one of the events following numerous warnings that it would not be safe. A fifth conference in Des Moines, Iowa carried on in defiance, despite leftists showing up to disrupt the proceedings.

VIDEO – WE FIGHT – DONALD TRUMPS SPEECH TO THE NATION

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

 

Thanks to Beverly Frassinelli for sharing this inspiring video  of a speech Donald Trump gave on October 13, 2016   Also, thanks to Beverly for sharing her prayer with us  ” May God be with him and our country in this time of peril from America’s enemies from within.”  Nancy

VIDEO –  WE FIGHT  – SPEECH BY DONALD TRUMP
TEXT OF SPEECH

We Fight…

On October 13th 2016, presidential candidate Donald Trump delivered a speech that defines this moment in our nation’s history. Part of that speech was put to a video. The entire transcript of that speech is below.

.

Transcript ] […] Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People. There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense.

The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.

The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. As an example, just one single trade deal they’d like to pass, involves trillions of dollars controlled by many countries, corporations and lobbyists.

For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests they partner with, our campaign represents an existential threat.

 

This is not simply another 4-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.

GUN CONTROL – TAKING A SECOND LOOK

Monday, March 26th, 2018

 

The historical facts (see below)  regarding  what can  happen when  the people can no longer defend themselves against tyrannical governments should be impressed on the students who are marching in protest for more gun control.   Nancy  
 THE WASHINGTON TIMES
TAKING A SECOND LOOK
BY NATE BROGIN   March 4, 2018

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  

Guns have a long history of debate in both the U.S. and elsewhere and remain a flash point in the minds of many maybe because they are the image of a basic weapon of war and personal defense. Guns have been the employed tool of some, yet the lack of guns exacerbates exposure to violence.

In 2014 Australia, all “registered” guns were outlawed and turned in. In 2015, Ed Chenel, a police chief in that country, confirmed that criminal armed robbery increased by a whopping 40 percent. Homicides in the State of Victoria alone are up 300 percent. You know why.

Acting on mostly the emotions of blame, history memorialized:

In 1938, Germany established gun control. By 1945, 13 million Jews and others were exterminated.

In 1929, the USSR established gun control. By 1953, about 20 million dissidents were terminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, were neutralized.

In 1935, China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political voices of a different opinion, were eliminated.

In 1970, Uganda established gun control. By 1979, 300,000 Christians, became unaccounted for.

Accept this fact of reality — armed people will never willingly load themselves into railroad boxcars.

GUANTANAMO BAY – JUSTICE DELAYED

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

 

These terrorists  are captured enemy combatants and should be dressed in orange jump suits, not the flamboyant Muslim head dresses and costumes that they wear to make a mockery of their trial.  Our justice system at Guantanamo should be just and swift and not the circus that is exposed in this article.  Camp Justice, indeed !!!  Nancy

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Justice Delayed at Guantanamo Bay

Paralyzed by endless litigation over procedure, the 9/11 war-crimes commission grinds on.

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, mastermind of 9/11, arrives in court dressed in a headdress, tunic and short white trousers (strict fundamentalist style, purportedly emulating Muhammad). His overgrown beard is dyed orange. He sits smugly, legs dangling, and talks with his attorneys while prosecutors play video footage of the Twin Tower attacks in the ultrasecure courtroom.

Walid bin Attash, who helped select and train hijackers, and Ramzi bin al Shibh, a member of al Qaeda’s Hamburg cell, wear camouflage jackets and headdresses, as if they were still in the Afghan mountains. But the camo is hunting gear from Sears—the Guantanamo Military Commission won’t let them wear anything realistic enough to be confused with the guards’ uniforms.

Ammar al Baluchi, KSM’s nephew and a courier for Osama bin Laden, dresses like a prince in a fictional epic: maroon, fez-like headcap, fancy, dark velvet vest. A richly embroidered prayer rug is slung over the back of his chair.

Mustafa al Hawsawi, a money man, looks like a martyr dressed for the grave, in white linen and a shawl embroidered with Palestinian flags. One way or another, all five are projecting versions of the fantasies common to radical Islamists.

This weeklong December hearing, which I attended as an observer, marked the U.S. government’s first formal presentation of evidence against the five living men most culpable for 9/11. It came during the fifth year of pretrial motions. The trial, now projected to take place in 2019, will no doubt be followed by many appeals. By the time it’s over, justice will have been delayed by decades.

In the courtroom, it wasn’t hard to see why. Start with the rules, which Congress, the Supreme Court and two administrations each had a hand in shaping. The Guantanamo trial procedures are, with a few exceptions, supposed to be as close as possible to those in courts-martial. As a result, every procedural niggle is litigated from the ground up, with no controlling precedents. The rules aim to keep the trial moving by allowing hearsay evidence, and to avoid the controversy over “torture” by excluding evidence obtained via contested interrogation methods. But in the constant litigation over procedure, defense attorneys can fight the former and keep the latter front and center.

  And whereas the decisions of other war-crimes tribunals have been final or nearly so, three Washington-based courts—the Court of Military Commission Review, the Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court—will all hear appeals from Gitmo. With a trial this complex, that structure guarantees extensive litigation after the trial and overcaution now.

Intelligence bureaucracy protocols have complicated the administration of justice. After a defense lawyer allegedly mishandled a piece of classified evidence, a JAG major stammered to the court that it would take a year to resolve the matter through the bureaucracy, during which the trial would stop. The flabbergasted judge compelled an agency head to appear in court and speed things up.

The week I visited, a veteran prosecutor made a hash of an important motion. Mr. al Hawsawi’s attorneys argued that under the law of war, there wasn’t enough sustained fighting between the U.S. and al Qaeda to meet the definition of “hostilities,” before or even on 9/11, and therefore the court has no authority to try the defendants. Supporting this premise was a defense expert witness, a professor of international law.

The government hadn’t called its own international-law expert, and when the prosecutor rose to cross-examine this witness, he ran into a buzzsaw of objections, which the judge cuts short after 12 minutes with a mercy lunch break. In the afternoon, the judge had to intervene to ask the key questions: Wasn’t this court designed to try the 9/11 cases?

This was the worst misstep in a week with too many of them. Nonetheless, the government has a strong case. Prosecutors have presented proof that Mr. al Hawsawi moved money for nine of the 17 hijackers and showed video of him congratulating Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan after the attacks. But being right isn’t always enough to win a trial. And for the defense attorneys these trials are the greatest challenges of their careers.

JAG or civilian, most of these lawyers are able, principled death-penalty opponents. But some show signs of troubling moral inversion. One told me with a straight face that, given all her client has suffered, he should be let out with time served. All the civilian female defense attorneys wore Islamic headdresses when their clients were present—not at the request of their clients, nor for religious reasons, but sua sponte, to build trust. Maybe it works—but it also seems to aid the defendants’ efforts at costumed theatrics. Meanwhile, two of KSM’s attorneys have recently converted to Islam and pray with the defendants in the courtroom during breaks in the trial.

 Just as justice demands these men be executed if guilty, it also demands they have a chance to answer the charges against them. It is a domestic and foreign-policy imperative that the U.S. be seen to give a fair trial, and lay its evidence before the world. But this process looks like something else altogether—paralysis.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis visited Gitmo around Christmas, and the Trump administration is reportedly reviewing its approach to the trials. If so, good. Few topics are more in need of top-to-bottom re-evaluation.

Mr. Gallagher is a second-year student at New York University Law School. He was observing the trial on behalf of Judicial Watch and the NYU Federalist Society.

CHURCHILL – THREE LESSONS OF STATEMANSHIP

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

 

 

This speech by Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College contains more information on Winston Churchill and the newly released film, The Darkest Hour.   Nancy  

Three Lessons of Statesmanship

December 2017 • Volume 46, Number 12The following is adapted from a speech delivered on December 1, 2017, at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C.

“Wars and rumors of wars” are all around us. At Hillsdale College we have been thinking about the greatest of all wars, the Second World War. If we study that war and the actions of its profoundest statesman, we can find some lessons to guide us today.

We think of World War II in part because a fine film has just come out about the beginning of that war. The film is called Darkest Hour, and we know and admire its lead actor Gary Oldman and its producer Doug Urbanski, both of whom will be visiting our campus soon. We also think of that war because we have just sent to the printer Volume 20 of The Churchill Documents, the series of documentary volumes that will soon complete the official biography of Winston Churchill, of which Hillsdale College Press is the publisher. Volume 20, entitled Normandy and Beyond, ends on December 31, 1944.

The film, then, concerns the beginning of that largest and worst of wars, and the document volume covers the end of its last full year. The beginning and the end of things reveal their meaning in particular ways. From the beginning and the end of World War II, we draw three lessons, relevant to the choices we Americans must make now.

The first lesson of the war concerns what Churchill called the “profound significance of human choice, and the sublime responsibility of men.”

We see in Darkest Hour that the war begins in disaster. There was the disaster that led to the war: the advent of Hitler in 1933 and his increasing domination of Central Europe. In 1940, the disaster extended across Western Europe to the Atlantic: beginning the very day Winston Churchill became prime minister of Great Britain, Hitler launched his armies west across Belgium and France to begin an utter rout. No one, including Churchill, believed that a great nation like France could be overcome in a matter of weeks, but that is what happened. The British Army escaped from Dunkirk back to England by the skin of its teeth.
