Even though only a mad man would trust America’s Intelligence Community, turn on your televisions and what you are seeing play out is a lethal mix of McCarthyism and Iraq.
In 2002, in the lead up to the disastrous Iraq War, we were told to salute and buy 100 percent into the Intelligence Community’s (IC) assessment that of course Iraq was in possession of weapons of mass destruction, and of course those weapons would end up in the hands of terrorists.
Therefore, we had no choice but to launch a pre-emptive war, and anyone who disagreed, or who even expressed skepticism, was deemed a traitor, suspect, and un-American. And to my everlasting shame I was one of those shaming others. But at least I learned. The establishment media, Democrats, and the neocon dead-enders in Never Trump are all desperate to return to 2002. But this time it is worse, much worse, because this time we are supposed to salute and buy 100 percent into an IC assuring and reassuring us nuke-heavy Russia is destroying everything sacred about America. But…
Isn’t it all just a tad too neat?
What I mean is, during the 2016 election, the IC and then President Obama did nothing to stop this so-called meddling. In fact, Obama admonished those concerned with meddling to “stop whining.”
But now Now NOW that Trump upset the world in that election, anyone skeptical of meddling is guilty of treason, is a traitor, because Russia not only meddled, Russia committed an ACT OF WAR.
And then there is the return of McCarthyism, the comeback of the Red Menace, the encore of hysterical red-baiting unseen in 60 years.
Just as it was in the red-baiting decade that began after WWII, so it is now. Yes, Russia was a legitimate threat then and is now, which is why I am thrilled Trump is responding to that threat in substantive ways that shame both of his predecessors.
Trump has signed off on sanctions against Russia, including targeted sanctions against Putin’s inner-circle; he has armed Ukraine, bombed Russia’s client state of Syria, drawn a legitimate red line in Syria. Trump is also desperate to strengthen NATO, eager to cut off Germany’s purchase of energy from Russia, has closed near a half-dozen Russian consulates and booted their personnel, and reversed Obama’s policy of appeasement by finally authorizing the sale of missile defense to Poland.
Nevertheless, Trump is still not patriotic enough because the red-baiter’s new Loyalty Oath demands we salute, blindly accept, and act on the findings of the same IC that shrugged off and told us to stop whining about election meddling when Hillary was 10 points up; the same IC that missed the fall of the Soviet Union and 9/11; that bungled us into Iraq; that used a dossier filled with Kremlin-fed lies to try and frame Trump for collusion; that spied on Trump, wiretapped him, leaked national security secrets to undermine his presidency; that forged FISA warrants against him, and who are currently using as proof of meddling two dozen kangaroo indictments of Russian citizens who will never be extradited, which means nothing will ever be proven in court, which means it is all bull shit.
Is it not just a tad too neat that within 12 hours — the day before Trump won the presidency and the day after — we watched in real time as the oh-so sacred IC, Obama, Democrats, and the establishment media went from “stop whining about usual-usual Russian meddling” to ACT OF WAR— went from “this has been going on for decades and we are ready for it, crybabies” to ACT OF WAR?
But we must also look at the players themselves, at these esteemed gentlemen in positions of enormous power who watched Hillary Clinton destroy evidence and lie, but still exonerated her, and then used her campaign’s Kremlin-laced dossier to forge FISA warrants in order to spy on Trump’s campaign…
Let’s watch as these wretched men, these unbalanced, dishonest, hyper-partisans lie to us, lie under oath, and define patriotism only as BELIEVING EVERY WORD THEY SAY…
The swamp is filled with monsters and the only thing standing between us and their monstrous madness is Trump’s healthy skepticism, his refusal to forget the lessons of Iraq. And while he is not perfect and could be more articulate and makes mistakes, he does so in pursuit of doing the right thing, which is to keep the monsters you will meet below from manufacturing whatever horrors they are willing to put our sons and daughters through (not to mention hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians) in order to primp and polish their own self-regard.
These hideous men, like their confederates in Never Trump and the establishment media, are the most dangerous breed of all: nihilistic peacocks…
And only a madman would trust them.

Wouldn’t it be great if a Never Trumper, a Progressive, a RINO or a member of the Mainstream Media read this article?by John Nolte
President Donald Trump proved to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that he is nobody’s puppet — not Putin’s, not the Deep State’s, and not the establishment media’s. Like the moral strength he showed in Charlottesville, VA, last year, Helsinki should be remembered as one of Trump’s finest moments.
Last August, some truly evil people showed up in Charlottesville. On one side, you had white supremacists, and on the other, you had the left-wing terrorist group Antifa. A riot broke out, one person was murdered, and another 30-plus others were injured.
Almost immediately, the media crafted a narrative around Charlottesville that determined what Trump was supposed to do, which was to make a statement condemning racism and racists. Which he did, more than once. But he also did something he was not supposed to do and that was to, at long last, make an issue of Antifa, who had been running around for the better part of a year acting as the organized left’s Brownshirts.
Antifa had not just been targeting the alt-right. Antifa had been targeting mainstream, everyday conservatives and Trump supporters. And because the establishment media also advocates in favor of violence against the right, Antifa was able to terrorize us with impunity thanks to a media that deliberately ignored, downplayed, justified, glorified, or romanticized their reign of terror.
By having the moral courage to go off-script, Trump used Charlottesville to finally drag these terrorists into the national spotlight, and he did so by telling the truth, by accurately pointing out that “both sides” were responsible for that national disgrace. Trump also had the moral courage to point out there were “good people” on both sides; those who are not racists, who are not left-wing terrorists, who had arrived in good faith to protest against the tearing down of a statue and against racism. The New York Times, of all places, eventually proved Trump correct on this point.
But Trump was supposed to only condemn the white supremacists. He was not supposed to pour sunlight on the media’s shock troops in Antifa, which would limit their effectiveness in the future (and has). He was not supposed to point out that people of good faith can oppose purifying our history with the tearing down of statues. And this is why the media lost its mind for a week.
You see, the establishment media are left-wing activists only interested in one thing, and it has nothing to do with informing the public. Like all leftists, what these awful people most care about is control. The power to control people and events is what defines who they are, and when they sense they are losing that power, when someone dares defy them, like all spoiled children who do not get what they want, they do the only thing left to hold on to their sense of control — they stage a public tantrum.
The media’s post-Charlottesville tantrum was a wonder to behold, and it continues to this day, primarily through lies. Still bitter over Trump’s defiance, the media have fabricated the myth that Trump did not condemn racists (he did, more than once), that he said there are good Nazis (he didn’t), that he created a moral equivalence between racists and anti-racist protesters (he didn’t — what he did was accurately equate Antifa and white supremacists).
Almost a year later, Trump is still walking around with the flaming arrows in his back over Charlottesville, simply because he told the truth about Charlottesville. Which brings me to what happened Monday in Helsinki.
Once again, and this time with the help of that dirty cop, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the establishment media and the Deep State believed they had rigged events to a point where Trump was cornered, where he would have no choice but to publicly berate Putin on the national stage for the sin of “interfering in our elections.”
What the media wanted was to emotionally blackmail Trump into creating an international scene, a YouTube moment with Putin, where the president would violate every diplomatic norm to publicly shame and berate the Russian president.
Why do you think Dirty Cop Mueller dropped his kangaroo indictment (more on this below) just a few days before the Putin summit? It was all coordinated and staged, it was the behavior of spoiled children desperate to get their way.
Wisely, for the good of his country and out respect for the truth, Trump refused to jump in the trap. And now the spoiled children who once again did not get what they want, are having a national tantrum. And moral cowards, like House Speaker Paul Ryan (God bless Rand Paul), are terrified of these spoiled media babies and are seeking only to appease them.
Nevertheless, what really happened is this: Trump showed the gangster Putin that he is his own man, that he cannot be bullied by America’s corrupt political and media establishment into behaving in a certain way, that he is willing to take those flaming arrows to do what he thinks is right, which, in this case, is to never forget the lessons of Iraq.
Keep in mind that what Trump was supposed to do Monday was to drink the Kool-Aid, was to believe our Intelligence Community (IC) got it 100 percent right about Russian meddling, was to throw diplomacy out the window and publicly embarrass Putin.
Thankfully, Trump refused to do that, and now the spoiled children, just as they did after Charlottesville, are again lying and claiming Trump “sided with Putin,” when the only thing Trump’s guilty of is remaining diplomatic, which is the whole point of a summit expressly arranged to facilitate peace.
What is so incredible is that, in this the year 2018, after the intelligence catastrophe that was Iraq, after learning the IC was actively meddling in the 2016 election using Kremlin-fed propaganda in the form of a dossier, only a crazy man would swallow whole what the IC is telling him, and only a dangerously weak man would risk damaging relations with Russia further in order to symbolically appease the IC.
The truth is this, and we all know it, especially those currently in the middle of their tantrum:

New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a stir for criticizing Israel’s “occupation” of Palestine in a recent interview. Ocasio-Cortez, who surprisingly won a New York Democratic primary on a socialist platform, made the remark during an interview on PBS’s “Firing Line” on Friday. The 28-year-old political newcomer was roundly criticized for making the statement then admitting that she is “not the expert at geopolitics on this issue.”
July 16, 2018: Ted Yoho released the following statement in response to the recent meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin:
“It’s easy to comment and criticize on a press conference without knowing what was said in the closed-door hearing. To critique the meeting between President Trump and Putin without facts is irresponsible as things were said that both leaders at this point are not willing to divulge. Could things have been said differently, better, stronger and more direct? ABSOLUTELY. There was a missed opportunity to tell not just Russia but any country or entity that tampering with our elections will result in tough consequences in order to protect and preserve our Republic. I don’t agree with President Trump’s comments that Putin didn’t interfere as the evidence is clear. However, I don’t believe there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. I also believe the DNC and the Clinton e-mails need to be investigated as vigorously as President Trump has been because at the end of the day, we are a nation of laws and we must uphold them.
“That said, we know that Russia meddled in our elections and should be held accountable for their interference. It is debatable and I am doubtful whether or not meddling influenced the outcome of the election but regardless, there must be consequences for these actions against our sovereignty. Russia specifically needs to be held accountable for their destructive actions across the globe that include but are not limited to invading Crimea, propping up Assad while helping him commit war crimes against his own people, and poisoning expatriates on foreign soil.
“With regard to our intelligence agencies, I am of the position that we have the best and most dedicated agents that serve this nation. Like with any organization, a few bad apples have presented themselves and it is our job as elected leaders collectively to restore the American people’s trust in these critical agencies and their mission. I am hopeful that the Mueller probe leads to concrete convictions against foreign actors trying to harm our Republic and will be included with the existing sanctions. These sanctions are the toughest we have seen since Reagan and will produce results.
“For those who are outraged at President Trump and claim he was either too hard or too soft were you as critical of President Obama’s world tour apologizing for America’s past aggressions? It’s time to check our political affiliation cards at the door and remember that one meeting doesn’t define a Presidency.”
To those who think President Trump was too weak with Russia’s Vladimir Putin yesterday, let me remind you of where we are coming from. By the way, do you remember that old sitcom Eight is Enough?

However, Facebook seems to disagree as evidenced in this ABC News piece from 2014:
Here’s a List of 58 Gender Options for Facebook Users
by Russell Goldman February 13, 2014
Facebook introduced dozens of options for users to identify their gender today – and although the social media giant said it would not be releasing a comprehensive list, ABC News has found at least 58 so far.
Previously, users had to identify themselves as male or female. They were also given the option of not answering or keeping their gender private.
User’s can now select a “custom” gender option.
“There’s going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world,” Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison told the Associated Press. Harrison, who worked on the project, is in the process of gender transition, from male to female.
Facebook will also allow users to select between three pronouns: “him,” “her” or “their.”
The following are the 58 gender options identified by ABC News:
Read the rest of the list HERE, which as the title of the song by the rock group, ABBA says, goes On And On And On.
Please excuse the explicit language folks, but we need to know and understand exactly what we are dealing with.

Police in Sadiq Khan’s London have used the Public Order Act to prevent a rally in support of U.S. President Donald Trump outside the American embassy, despite permitting a large, ill-tempered anti-Trump rally on Friday.
Protestors attending the ‘Welcome Trump’ event had planned to gather outside the embassy and march from there to Whitehall, where they would have joined in with a separate ‘Free Tommy Robinson’ event in support of the activist and independent journalist who was recently imprisoned for contempt of court after reporting on a grooming gang trial.
But the Metropolitan Police Force, which answers to a large extent to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, used the Public Order Act to impose a raft of restrictions on both groups of protesters which made this impossible — despite allowing far larger anti-Trump protests at which at least six people were arrested to go ahead on Saturday, with demonstrators carrying signs emblazoned with harsh profanity and messages such as “Die Trump Die”.
The Police have slapped Section 12 of the Public Order Act on the pro-Trump rally at the US Embassy.

“I was planning to go to the American embassy to meet with a group of demonstrators who are planning to welcome Trump into the country… it’s really good to see him in this country, and speaking truth to the people in power in this country,” explained David Kurten, an elected member of the London Assembly for the Brexit-supporting UK Independence Party.

A partial transcript follows:
TUR: I do want to start with you, J.D. Based on where Americans stand on the issues, and Americans have really moved in a much more progressive direction over the years, do you think it’s appropriate to continue to take such a strict originalist view of the Constitution given it’s 2018 and not 1776? [The Constitution was written in 1787.]
VANCE: Well, I don’t know that Americans have become more Progressive on everything. Certainly, times have changed since 1776, but how you interpret the Constitution is ultimately different from what policy preferences you want.
This is a point conservatives make pretty often about the Supreme Court. Whether you want the laws to move in a progressive or conservative direction, the Supreme Court is a separate institution with a separate mandate under our constitutional structures.
For example, if you want abortion to be outlawed or you want abortion not to be outlawed, that is a question, and there’s an open debate around whether that question should be decided by the Supreme Court or that question should be decided by voters and state legislatures, and by federal legislators. That is a question to me about constitutional structure, not so much about policy preferences. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
