At Mount Rushmore, Trump exploits social divisions, warns of ‘left-wing cultural revolution’ in dark speech ahead of Independence Day

—Washington Post

President Trump delivered one of the best speeches of his Presidency Friday evening at Mount Rushmore, and for evidence consider the echo-chamber headlines above. The chorus of independent media voices understands that Mr. Trump is trying to rally the country in defense of traditional American principles that are now under radical and unprecedented assault.

Dark? In most respects Mr. Trump’s speech was a familiar Fourth of July ode to liberty and U.S. achievement that any President might have delivered in front of an American landmark. “No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America. And no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation,” he said.

Contrary to the media reporting, the America Mr. Trump described is one of genuine racial equality and diversity. He highlighted the central ideal of the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal.” As he rightly put it, “these immortal words set in motion the unstoppable march of freedom” that included the abolition of slavery more than a half century later.

THE CLEAR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT

Washington Examiner

The clear differences between the Left and the Right

By Stephen Moore  Stephen Moore is the finance and economics columnist of the Washington Examiner and an economic consultant with Freedom Works
June 5, 2020

The crisis of the coronavirus-induced economic lockdown and now the violent protests in the streets have unleashed a depression-level financial crisis and unprecedented human suffering — especially in our inner cities. These events have also exposed a Grand Canyon-sized chasm that now separates how the Left and the Right see America today. To wit:

1) The Right believes that stay-at-home orders and social distancing requirements are counterproductive and should be repealed safely and immediately. The Left believes that those orders must stay in place but should apply to those on the Right, not to liberal protesters.

2) The Right engages in nonviolence. The Left shows tacit support for mob violence.

3) The Right believes that the best way to revive the economy is to incentivize a dormant workforce to get back on the job. The Left believes that the best way to revive the economy is to pay people more money not to work than to work.

VIOLENT PROTEST AND THE INTELLIGENTSIA

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

 

This interview with a professor of Russian literature points out some of the similarities between what is happening in America today and conditions in Czarist Russia right before the Russian Revolution.   Nancy
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
VIOLENT PROTEST AND THE INTELLIGENTSIA
An Interview with Gary Saul Morson, A professor of Russian Literature at Northwestern University,    by Barton Swaim  Mr. Swaim is an editorial page writer for the Journal.
June  7, 2020
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: In late czarist Russia, some political parties and other groups—the Social Democrats, the anarchists, the Marxists—explicitly endorsed terrorism. “The liberal party—the Constitutional Democrats, they called themselves—did not condone terrorism,” Mr. Morson says. “But they refused to condemn it. And indeed they called for the release from prison of all terrorists, who were pledged to continue terrorism right away. . . . A famous line from one of the liberal leaders put it this way: ‘Condemn terrorism? That would be the moral death of the party.’ ”

The similarities between this week’s riots and the Los Angeles riots of 1992 are obvious. Both were occasioned by appalling video images, and both divided the nation along partisan and ideological lines. The differences between the two events, however, are more revealing. The violence in 1992 came after a court verdict; the beating and arrest of Rodney King had happened more than a year before. This year’s riots came within days of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis officers. The riots of 1992 were mostly confined to poor and working-class areas of Los Angeles. This week saw mayhem all over America, and in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere the rioters targeted wealthy streets and neighborhoods.

But perhaps the most striking difference is the rationalization, and sometimes full-throated defense, of violence from left-wing elites: the glorification of havoc, the vilification of cops and their middle-class admirers, highfalutin defenses of vandalism. The sense of revolution and class warfare was everywhere this week: the cognoscenti and underclass arrayed against the petty bourgeois shop owners; the elite and those they claim to represent against everybody else.

Gary Saul Morson says he has no special insight regarding police actions and the death of George Floyd. But he does have a provocative thesis about America’s current political moment: “To me it’s astonishingly like late 19th-, early 20th-century Russia, when basically the entire educated class felt you simply had to be against the regime or some sort of revolutionary.”

Mr. Morson, 72, is a professor of Russian literature at Northwestern University and an accomplished interpreter of Fyodor Dostoevsky, Anton Chekhov and Leo Tolstoy. Obviously we haven’t arrived at anything like what Lenin called a “revolutionary situation,” Mr. Morson says, but we have arrived at a situation in which well-intentioned liberal people often can’t bring themselves to say that lawless violence is wrong.

BALLOT HARVESTING – GETTING DEMOCRATS ELECTED

Friday, May 29th, 2020

 

This article pertains to what is happening in North Carolina but if the Democrats are doing it here, they are also doing it in your state too.  Heads up everybody !   Nancy

One lawyer’s dream come true: Getting Democrats elected

(News & Observer pool photo)

Excerpt From This Article:  The Elias-suggested fix is for North Carolina to allow absentee ballots to be accepted up to nine days following the election, without a witness signature, without current voter signature matching, and without a proper postmark. 

 

Marc Elias, the high-profile Washington, D.C., political operative with a law license, has one goal — getting Democrats elected to office. A crucial 2020 election and coronavirus have Elias believing he’s got an opportunity to put North Carolina in the win column for Democrats with expanded mail voting.

Elias, who the New York Times describes as “one of the most formidable election lawyers in the country, and arguably one of the most influential of unelected Democrats in Washington,” represented Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign and has been at the center of the discredited Steele dossier.

North Carolina voters may remember Elias when he represented then–gubernatorial candidate Roy Cooper during the 2016 recount, which resulted in a Cooper victory and most recently when he represented Democrat congressional candidate Dan McCready, who almost captured North Carolina’s deep–red 9th District. Ultimately, Republican Dan Bishop won a special election contest after the original 2018 results were set aside because of absentee ballot improprieties.

Elias is back in North Carolina. Several weeks ago, he collaborated with highly partisan Obama era Attorney General Eric Holder to file a lawsuit in Wake County, which, if successful would legalize ballot harvesting — a tactic used in the disputed 2018 9th District election. Based on the new complaint, it appears Elias is OK with ballot harvesting, so long as the practice can be continued post-election day.

THE FIGHTER MADISON CAWTHORN

Sunday, May 24th, 2020

 

A new and young upcoming Republican in the race for Mark Meadows’ North Carolina 11th Congressional seat.  Nancy

 

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

The fighter

When Mark Meadows resigned from Congress on March 30 to become White House chief of staff, he vacated a coveted seat. North Carolina’s recently redrawn 11th Congressional District encompasses most of the state’s mountainous western region and tilts Republican despite the liberal city of Asheville at its center.

Of the 12 candidates on the Republican primary ballot in March, the only two who earned more than 10% of the vote were 62-year-old businesswoman Lynda Bennett and Madison Cawthorn, who will not meet the constitutional age requirement for Congress until his 25th birthday on Aug. 1. Because neither broke the requisite 30%, the contest to replace Meadows has led to a June 23 runoff election that will pit two generations of the GOP against each other.

Cawthorn and his story are well known in western North Carolina, where his familial roots extend to the Revolutionary War. Once a staffer for Meadows, he was nominated by the former congressman to attend the U.S. Naval Academy, but his plans came crashing down on April 3, 2014, when a catastrophic car accident left him partially paralyzed at the age of 18.

“When my accident happened, I had spent my entire life building my athletic ability, building my mental ability, making sure I could pass any tests I was ever given,” Cawthorn told the Washington Examiner. The homeschooling graduate had earned a full-ride ROTC scholarship from the U.S. Marine Corps. “I was the No. 1 pick in the whole nation. I had it all.”

“Everything was going great for me,” he continued. “I had a great family. I was extraordinarily healthy. Life couldn’t get much better for me.” The otherwise cheerful Cawthorn looked down sadly as he described the night when he was riding back with his friend from a spring break trip to Florida. “I’m asleep taking a nap, and I run into a wall at 70 miles per hour. My entire life was taken away from me.”

His friend had fallen asleep at the wheel of their SUV and plowed into a concrete road barrier. After his friend pulled him from the fiery wreck with the help of two bystanders, Cawthorn was flown to a trauma center in Daytona Beach. Remembering when he regained consciousness, he said, “I wake up and I can’t move my legs. All I see is my family around me, looking at me with nothing but pity.” That’s when he realized, “Wow, I’m really messed up, whatever’s going on.”

Cawthorn had been reclining with his legs up when they crashed, and the force of the impact snapped his spine. The accident burned him, shattered his ankle, broke his pelvis, and cost him a kidney. His internal organs were pushed up into his chest, crushing his lungs. “Both my lungs collapsed, so I couldn’t speak for a very long time,” he said, recalling how he learned to communicate with sign language. Only his head escaped injury. The doctors were amazed he survived.

A TIME TO HATE

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

 

This is one  of the best articles I have ever read !  Please share far and wide.     Nancy   
           I don’t think anyone could sum things up better than this rabbi has.
A Time to Hate
It’s not too late.
by Rabbi Dov Fischer, Esq. – American Spectator – May 11, 2020


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to guard, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
— Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) 3:1-8

Through eight years, I accepted the rules of the game. Obama was president. He won fair and square because the Republicans serially put up two milquetoast opponents who were incapable of offering a vision or articulating a message that inspired. John McCain had been an American wartime hero who stood by his men, refused early release, and withstood torture in the “Hanoi Hilton” 40 years earlier. But he had no business running for a presidency two generations later for which he was not prepared to fight and for which he had no vision. And then came Mitt Romney, his etch-a-sketch candidacy, his binders full of women, and his Romneycare, which served as the model for the Obamacare and which was the single most galvanizing issue in 2012 for Republican conservatives. In order to throw out Obamacare, the Republican Party offered us conservatives … what, Romneycare? Tough for us conservatives to sing in that tabernacle choir.
I accepted Obama. I never articulated his first name, and I never called him “president,” but I accepted the results and accepted that this Pretender was our country’s lawfully elected chief executive. I watched his arrogance, the unctuous way he carried himself literally with his nose up, the way he never held a railing while walking a stairway because he was too cool, the kinds of human dreck he regularly invited as his White House guests, and I accepted it all with the soft whisper, “This, too, shall pass.” I watched the Corrupt Journalist Corps idolize him, crown him a king, admire him as a messiah and a deity, and I accepted the milieu. This, too, in time would pass. It meant living through eight years of the deepest public corruption. Lois Lerner stealing an election by leveraging the awesome power of the Internal Revenue Service to close down legitimate conservative political groups. Eric Holder — the nobleman who urged people to kick enemies — bringing lawlessness and corruption into the Justice Department, even approving the “Fast and Furious” idea of releasing lethal weapons to Mexican drug lords in the cockamamie scheme to find out how they access and move their weapons. Glenn Beck exposed Obama’s Maoist communications director, Anita Dunn, who walked children through the White House. There was ACORN. Just one corruption after another.

MOM PULLS CHILDREN FROM SCHOOL OVER LGBT ADULT “HANGOUT”

Mom Pulls Children From School Over LGBT Adult “Hangout”

Written by  Alex Newman

An outraged California mother announced on Facebook that she would be pulling her children from public school after receiving an email advertising an online “LGBTQ+ Safe Space Web Hangout” for “LGBTQ+youth ages 13-25.”

According to the advertisement, which was e-mailed to middle-school children by government schools in California’s Gilroy and Morgan Hill school district, this “Safe Space Web Hangout” is “private” and by “invite only.” They happen every Wednesday at 4 PM, the email said.

The hangouts are hosted by “The LGBT Youth Space,” a self-styled “community drop-in center” funded by taxpayers for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and ally youth and young adults ages 13-25.” Yes — ages 13 through 25.

Participation in “Safe Space Web Hangout” is via smartphone or phone, with video being optional, the e-mail said.

Parents were shocked. “I cannot believe I just received this email from my child’s middle school,” explained the Hispanic mother, whose name is not being reported even though the comments were made in a public forum because FreedomProject Media could not obtain her consent by press time. “There is so much wrong with this.”

However, rather than just complain online, as so many parents do, this mother decided to take serious action to protect her children. “This is why along with many other reasons they will not be going to go there next year,” she explained, receiving over 500 likes, shares, and comments on the group in less than two days.

Under the post, critics expressed even more intense outrage. One mother, for instance, said the “safe space” was actually a “safe space” for “pedophiles” to “hit on children.” Another outraged mom had similar thoughts: “A government-allowed way to molest and indoctrinate children in a legal way. It makes me SICK!!!”

More than a few commentators suggested the “Safe Space” could be used by pedophiles and child rapists to groom and procure minor children. “They’re not even trying to hide the grooming anymore,” said one Facebook user under the post. Another said: “Pedo sponsored, no doubt.” Dozens of comments expressed similar sentiments.

Stephanie Yates, founder of Informed Parents of California, told The Newman Report that more and more school districts were partnering with LGBTQ groups seeking to solicit children. Still, Yates is thankful for her network’s platform, which allows parents to share their personal stories — as the mother above did — and wake up other parents.

“We need more parents to have the boldness and courage to share their experience and the documentation they receive from schools,” Yates said, adding that parents were increasingly being sidelined in communications from education officials. “Schools are sending direct communications to the children through their school emails.”

“Imagine what all the schools are soliciting our children with,” she said. “What is even more frightening is that kids could be going on to these hangouts without parents knowing and by the time parents find out, if they ever do, it will be very hard for a parent to talk with their children about the harms of these groups.”

Among other concerns, comparing it to parents trying to protect their daughter from a bad boyfriend, Yates said these organizations allied with schools are targeting impressionable children and alienating them from their parents. “They lure them in by saying that they care about them, they build an emotional bond and tell them that their parents don’t understand or can’t be trusted,” she added. “This is pretty much a grooming.”

“Parents need to take a stand, and pull their kids before it happens to their children,” concluded Yates, whose grassroots movement has taken the state by storm.

A bit of digging into the LGBT group reveals some troubling facts. Among other supposed “services,” this tax-funded outfit offering the “Safe Space” for 13- to 25-year old “youth” provides condoms, “safe sex supplies,” “activism and leadership opportunities,” “gender and sexuality workshops” for students, and more, according to its website.

They also provide a “space” where older homosexual men can connect with children as young as 13, it seems.

“The LGBTQ Youth Space is staffed by team of LGBTQ+ and ally community members,” the website continues. “We have diverse backgrounds in fields of social justice, youth development, mental health, social work, sexuality and gender studies, community organizing, public heath, and arts and culture.”

Funded by Substance Use Prevention Services of the Behavioral Health Department in Santa Clara County, California, the scheme is aimed homosexual, bisexual, transgender, “queer,” and other children and adults.
