        “Keyboard terrorist” might be a good label for the Missouri Senate member that used her keyboard to call for the President to be harmed. Also, the man that she was having exchanges with at the time she wrote that.

        Ahead of her comment, a man reportedly wrote that his brother is a Secret Service agent assigned to the President and the term of assignment is 6 years. He claims his brother served Obama for 4 years and has 2 more to go protecting “this idiot”. He made a prediction that the President would soon be harmed. It’s all reported at The Gateway Pundit but I’m not providing the link and stir the ire of some here that go off on any other website mentioned.

        Hopefully, both the senator and the man she was communicating with on social media get their turn under a hot light, have every single aspect of their backgrounds uncovered and sifted through and the senator is censored and forced to resign. She has a real future as a paid street agitator and anarchist.

      They are practicing the pen and tongue jihad. Zero phrased it pen and phone.
      Jihad by the tongue (jihad bil lisan) and/or jihad by the pen (jihad bil qallam). This might sound like simple proslytisation, but there is more involved in that (in essence) Islam recognises any method including lying or dissimulation (see the doctrines of Taqiyya/Muda’rat, Kitman, Tawriya and also Tayseer) to “spread Islam” either in terms of actually winning converts, or gaining acceptance for Islam within a host society, or disguising elements of Islam (hence the oft repeated statement that “Islam is a religion of peace” despite much evidence to the contrary from both its texts and its actions). It would also include attempting to silence criticism of Islam by labelling critics as “racists”, “fascists” or “Islamophobes” or any verbal/written means to promote/defend Islam and/or silence opposition and critics.

          Is there a real, practical distinction between a peasant and a slave?

          If a slave is owned outright, having no rights or will, and a peasant is owned by virtue of having everything they touch owned by the government (aka, feudal lords), and likewise have no real rights or will…then the distinction would be moot and irrelevant, no?

            Yes, in Ancient Egypt everything belonged to the Pharoah, and you paid your taxes for the benefit of being able to use it. The peasants were basically serfs. They were paid for their work, but it’s not like they would have had a choice. No one refuses the God King.

        The building of the Pyramids required millions of workers over the years, with thousands of jobs requiring unskilled slave labor. There is no doubt that highly skilled craftsmen were needed, as in any construction project, but the bulk of the work was accomplished by unskilled workers, some paid but many, many by slave labor.

        This does not minimize slavery at all. here are many people in the past responsible about slaves beginning in Africa all the way to Colonies to US. Ws this over 100 years ago..?
        Segregation is another black mark on this country and was shameful.
        Dr Carson did not feel sorry for himself but made something out of himself so have many other black people. How did many slip and all the money and opportunity given nothing happened to bring them up ..? So many immigrants came with nothing and worked their way up never got a penny from the Government.

          If you want a good overview of the ethnic groups that have come to America and been successful (and those that weren’t), you should read this book by Thomas Sowell, Ethnic America. It traces the history of nine American ethnic groups—the Irish, Germans, Jews, Italians, Chinese, African-Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Mexicans.

        Statistically, less than 10% of southerners owned slaves. Slaves were expensive to own and maintain, and were out of the reach of the average person. At least, according to my father, who got his information from his father, and grandfather who lived during that era. The freedom to choose has been and always will be a cause of conflict, especially when the few impose their will on the many. Our ancestry is Scots-Irish and there is nothing more important to us than freedom. That is the reason why southerners took up arms when Lincoln attacked Charleston. Those people were farsighted enough to see that an unchecked federal government was a very bad idea. They were right.

        IMO, over time, organizations tend to devolve into something unsavory, i.e., the republican and democrat parties. I think that the KKK has become a classic example of that same deterioration and had moved a long way from its original purpose. Again, according to my dad, who grew up in rural Georgia, the KKK was the result of an attempt to reestablish order in a society where the draconian measures of reconstruction guaranteed that there would be no justice for the common man. He said that a man needed to be able to go to work in his fields with some assurance that his wife and children at home were safe from the displaced persons, marauders and vagabonds who were roamed the countryside after the Civil War. The deterrent was that justice would be swift if harm came to any members of the community… Another tenet of sound government that has been removed.
        The present dayKKK has become your stereotypical plot device and sound bite for authors and politicians who use it to virtue signal as they ride out of town on their moral high horse. Faugh!

They said the desecration of a US Army vet’s grave was to show their resolve that the bones be removed. It was vandalism, pure and simple. Oh, yes, for those who do not know, an act of the US Congress made all CSA veterans into USA veterans. So desecrating their memories, graves, statues and homes is vandalizing the memories, graves, statues, and homes of USA veterans. Let that sink in.

He advised them that they are not strong enough for the task they might have to do (rush in and grab the NK nukes). They are working better communications at levels where the US can be certain of Chinese movements. This stuff prevents wars.

      Do we hold the senators responsible if these groups vote for them…?
      Something is out of whack.
      Sure we need to be careful not to give them any credence but under the law they have rights. Unless Congress changes the rights of these groups they can go wherever.
      I have never known a Neo Nazi or KKK person and if they were they did not tell me.

        I agree – Americans have basic rights and we have a fundamental obligation to respect the rights of others. When a group openly endorses and uses violence to prevent others from exercising their rights – we have a problem. Antifa uses violence in this manner – it is what they celebrate, it is their role on the left. We should not, must not allow groups like Antifa to squash the rights of others by using brute force and the destruction of property.

        To be clear, I support the right of anyone to say their piece – even folks I find disturbing or threatening. If the KKK, Antifa or another such group wants to write books, hold rallies, and the like – great. They can hold weekend festivals with bands and eat barbecue. Expression is one thing – using violence or the threat of violence to infringe upon the rights of others is not acceptable.

        My point above is that Antifa (on the left) is unique in our political world in that they open endorse and use political violence. That is unacceptable. If the KKK behaved in a similar manner (used violence), there would be heck to pay and rightfully so. Just imagine if 3,000 Klan members attacked people waiting in line to see a liberal speaker and destroyed public property as part of their effort to stop the event from happening (think Milo at UC Berkeley). Right now we have Antifa serving as hired thugs for the Democratic Party and their repeated use of violence overtime must be condemned.

          You’re right, Libertysc2016. The 1st Amendment protects the right to “peaceful” assembly and the freedom of speech. There is no right to commit violence or to incite violence. The previous Barry administration, politicians and the media ignored the peaceful requirement, when pontificating about rioters exercising their Constitutional rights. They encouraged more of the same, by saying they understood the “grievances” and the violent push back against “oppression” or whatever, as if that makes violence acceptable and Constitutional or that it’s some sort of legitimate civil rights/social justice self defense. Nope. Their careful wording is “soft incitement”, cloaked with noble and lofty sounding verbiage that fails the test of the whole truth. Obviously, it’s still going on…from both sides of the aisle.

          I agree with the people who suspect the same sources are responsible for inciting and planting operatives on both sides. Regardless of what many of the participants may think, these mob actions are motivated and orchestrated political subversion and these dupes will not be the beneficiaries of any gain, intended or incidental. They will be the ones that suffer the consequences, physically and legally, if the inciters get their way.

          The current irrational and deceptive one-sided blame game of the usual talking heads gives away the political subversion motive every single time.

The other is Shippensburg University…named after the Shippen family…remember Peggy Shippen?…she was Benedict Arnold’s wife. I wouldn’t send my kid to either of those schools.
      Why I think the Civil War and all it’s issues should be memorialized is the extraordinary internal struggle it represented….600,000 casualties later and an incinerated terrain it was done. Has any other nation in the world ever done this to preserve itself and defy an immorality? We are just an extraordinary people and I want all Americans to remember that.

        Wait for it….the incinerated terrain was on foreign soil. All civilian casualties that I ever read about were on foreign soil. All of the burned out homes, destroyed infrastructure, mutilated livestock, and destroyed crops were on foreign soil. All of the stolen wealth, household items, women and children, and livestock were stolen from foreign soil. (Wait–women and children?! Yes, trainloads of Southern women and children taken, for example, to Chicago to work as POWs in industry. Their stories are heartbreaking, especially when they escaped and WALKED home to the South only find their husbands returned from the war to find them gone so the husbands married someone else, presuming their first family was dead.)

        So, no, it was an EXTERNAL conflict. The statues were raised on Southern soil, not on YANKEE soil. So there goes that theory. Actually, there may be a cease fire, but no treaty was ever executed to end the war. We are STILL at war. No reparations were paid, no tribunals were instituted where non-combatant Southerners could be heard against those union soldiers who robbed or raped them, being as they were CIVILIANS and not in the military and should not have suffered such crimes.) So away with all immorality arguments. Immorality? That is a rich claim if the South is meant to be the immoral combatant, given the war crimes her civilians endured under the union’s jackbooted thugs.

        BTW, most of the Southern civilian victims of these crimes were NOT slaveholders. My ancestors weren’t at any rate. The ones who fought, fought for their states because that is where the original Constitution meant that our loyalties would lie. Their women and children were left home to be marauded by roaming lawless bands of Yankee scum.

        I still feel more loyalty for my state than for that seething corrupt stew of villainy, theft, bloodlust, and graft on the Potomac.

The military even penetrated the “mystery” of the shamanic pouches and Southwest Indian subterranean Kivas. Nothing sacred was left unspoiled by the US military. It led to a total psychological destruction of the civilization of the Indian nations.
        Of course, they didn’t raise statues. They were an oral culture and history was passed from generations by story-tellers, not objects like statues or emblems on coins.

            Well, well, I guess we Southerners just don’t rate half a mention. We were put under military governorships after the war. Land and homes were stolen through unjust taxation and retributive lawmaking. (That’s why so many courthouses were burned during Reconstruction. Land records were destroyed to keep Carpetbagging scum from stealing what didn’t belong to them, the invading locusts).

            We have seen our antecedents and ourselves routinely and publically demonized in politics, common discourse, and entertainment. We are never the good guys. Look at movie villains. Most are given Southern accents (usually very badly done and from no discernible locale. Oh, you didn’t know that our accent isn’t generic? Even in regions of the various states we talk differently.) We are always judged as stupid, NAZI, KKK, haters of people with darker skin, or inbred just for where we originated and how we talk. We always start off having to play defense. Anyone else in the USA who is not a Native Indian subjected to that level of psychological warfare generation to generation with no special snowflake rights organization to run to for a sugar-tit?

            BTW, a lot of the Plains Native Indians were fighting for the South in the Civil War or they supported the CSA. That is one reason “Indian Fighters” like Wisconsin’s “Big Chief Yellow Hair” Custer, Kansas’ “Buffalo Bill” (the Redleg) Cody, and “Wild Bill” (the Redleg) Hickok, were so brutal. They were brutal union vets looking for payback for anyone who wasn’t on their team in the “late unpleasantness.” The CSA had the war’s only Native Indian General, Stand Watie. The union, ever the guarantor of human rights and lover and savior of non-European peoples, didn’t.

The idea that agitators from outside the South move here or just visit to desecrate our graves and erase our history is repellant. They are trying to erase Southern culture because Southerners are what stand between them and a full takeover of the US. Furthermore, if Southerners must be disappeared than so must our most consequential presidents and our Constitution as they are Southern. I personally am sick of the ant-Southern bigotry that permeates our government, entertainment, media, and schools. I believe Southerners should make sure their children no longer volunteer to serve in the US military as Southerners are apparently unwelcome – and the happy end result will be a draft as Southerners disproportionately serve in the military.

      Re: Benedict Arnold

      Again, this is not a comparable comparison. While many of the generals, other officers and fighting men of the South did serve in the US army prior to succession (many with distinction and provided excellent leadership, helping to win the Mexican War and other Indian War battles), they were not traitors in the same sense. While joining the succession would be seen by those of opposing views a betraying their prior commitment to the US Federal Gov., they in no way were duplicitous. They only fought against the US Federal Gov after leaving its service in a publicly and honestly. They were forthright in their intentions and their actions.

      In their and other Southerners view, they were not fighting as US citizens Against their own government when fighting in the War Between the States. The Southern States had LEFT the US Fed Gov by choice, through physically peaceful political means. They were NO LONGER part of the Union! When the Southern Generals fought against the Union, they were fighting FOR their country which was now the Confederacy of Southern States. The country had split into two countries and they went with what had now become a Different country, usually the country of their birth. (ex: Stonewall Jackson was born in what is now WV but at the time of his birth and succession was VA. WV broke away from VA during the war to stay with the Union.)

      Benedict Arnold was serving within the Patriot Troops, under General Washington. He was an officer in charge of West Point was duplicitously betraying the army for which he was fighting at that time, betraying the uniform he wore, switching sides in the midst of the war, changing loyalties from one cause to another in the midst of the conflict. It was actually traitorous and a betrayal. He was a spy and did it for money and glory. There is no respect on either side for such a person. He fought gallantly for our side at a pivotal moment and then betrayed our side — in the same war, in the same cause. That is a traitor. His contribution early in the war was so important that the leg he lost at Saratoga was memorialized while his name and legacy are that of a traitor due to his later actions.

      The Southerners were not traitors. They did not pick the physical fight. They chose a different political side in a political fight that escalated into a war. Some did so Very reluctantly and only after the Federal Gov actually escalated the war. But they were not fighting against the Union States duplicitously while in the Federal Gov service. They just could not fight agains their home, their family, the country of their birth. They had to go home and defend their country and their home.

      Here is an analogy that is similar to what I am saying about the Southern and Union States: Many European countries have joined the EU. Now, some countries want to leave this originally voluntary union of separate countries. If the EU were to raise an army and escalate this political battle into a physical war against those countries who want to leave the previously thought to be voluntary union of European countries would those countries leaving the EU be traitorous to the EU? Would those who now work for the EU or live in other parts of the EU who return to their home country to fight against the EU when it invaded to enforce its will on the exiting or succeeding countries be properly thought of as traitor to the EU? Or would they be picking sides? If the EU won would they be literal traitors to the EU or just a conquered people who must now go along with the rule of the central gov of the EU? I would answer that they are only actual traitors if they fight on the side of the EU publicly while spying and betraying the EU to help the cause of their mother country.

        You make a very good point. It is interesting to note from original sources, mostly letters from Southern soldiers to their families, that the CSA soldier considered fellow soldiers who ran from battle to be traitors to their country. Most certainly, the CSA viewed their secession as very legitimately forming a new country to whom which they owed loyalty. The issue is ultimately about this alone…. not slavery, taxes, tariffs, etc but does a state or group of states have a right to lawfully secede its political bonds and is this right transcendent to the US Constitution? Jefferson, who authored the Declaration said yes….. Lincoln said no. Lincoln’s side won a war that settled the issue militarily. But if Jefferson and the Declaration are correct, the issue can not ultimately be settled militarily.

          The policy was slavery but the principle was State’s Rights, including the right to leave/succeed. Many in the South owned no slaves. There were abolitionists in the South. There were a significant minority in the South who wanted to stay in the Union and continue to try to work it out within the Union. Eastern TN was Very Pro Union and Lincoln’s VP was from Eastern TN. If the issue had been other than slavery, many today would agree with the South. If CA thinks they can legally succeed then they agree that the South had the same right to do so 160 yrs ago.

          The Southerners were Americans through and through. They did not see themselves as traitors. They were sticking with what they saw as the correct and true interpretation of the US Constitution. They viewed the Federal Gov at that moment as traitorous, or at least erroneous, to the US Constitution and the system of Fed/State checks and balances. Many viewed themselves as a continuation of their grandfathers and great grandfathers who had been the men of Washington’s army, the Over Mountain Men, the men who fought with the Swamp Fox, the men of Cowpens, the men who fought the British on the frontier, the Volunteers with Jackson at New Orleans, the inheritors of the US Constitution, the men and women who had settled the country and developed it into the nation it was becoming.

          At that point, prior to Lincoln’s election, more US Presidents had come for the South then from the Union states: George Washington (VA), Thomas Jefferson (VA), James Madison (VA), Andrew Jackson (SC/NC, came to TN as a young man), William Harrison (VA), John Tyler (VA), James Polk (NC, came to TN as a child), Zachary Taylor (VA, moved to KY as a child). Lincoln, born in KY, was moved to IN as a child. His VP, Andrew Johnson was born in NC and later moved to TN.

          History is written by the victors. Had the South won, the South would be independent. We were not aiming to take over or conquer the north or take over the Federal gov or unseat Lincoln as president via a coup or war. The South just wanted to stick to their understanding of the original agreement and go their own way.

          I delighted to be part of a UNITED States as we (Southerners) were a backbone of the US before the Civil War and we own the US victories of the 20th century as much a the rest of the US. We have had only 1 war on our land in the last 160 yrs, which is tremendous in comparison to Europe. We were never traitors and love the US. We Are the history of the US a Southerners are some of the main characters who founded, freed and developed our great country.

          Who was closer to the Constitution re leaving the Union? If a state wants to leave now would those who argue against the South be pro war against the state leaving?

        I’m just trying to identify patterns if there are any. I can’t find any American monuments or statues dedicated to anyone in America, American or Brit, who opposed the revolution. So we erect new monuments to Indians who opposed the United States, refuse to recognize any colonists who opposed the formation of the United States, accept as valid monuments erected a half century after the Civil War dedicated to Confederate generals who would break up the United States, and now tear down those Confederate monuments not because they opposed the United States because they supported slavery.

    A story that has not been covered in any of the “reporting” is the fact that, despite the presence of “heavily armed militias” in Charlottesville wearing camo gear and carrying AR-15 carbines and handguns, NOT A SINGLE SHOT WAS FIRED. In the face of rioting and provocation, none of these militia members panicked or shot anyone. This goes against the narrative and is therefore ignored. No one is advocating “car control” to prevent future mass-casualty events.

    • The other story not being covered is that like it or not, these groups and yes all of them, both sides, have a right to free speech and assembly. As long as they break no laws, they have 1A Right to free speech.

      Just like everyone else, the majority, has the right to ignore them, speak out against them and to not support them in any way.

      What’s best is the actions of the past. Ignore them. Do not give them a platform or any coverage. Treat them as irrelevant as they are in our society.
      Instead the MSM is giving them just what they want. A voice and the power to make them bigger than what they really are.

    Just sent an email to the TN GOP. Made the following points very politely:

    1. Our 2 Senators are RINO’s

    2. Alexander votes in 2015 for clean repeal of ACA, then 1 month ago votes against the same bill he supported – fraudulent behavior

    3. Corker comments about President Trump were vindictive and condescending. Corker’s name is on an amendment used by President Obama to scurry the treaty process and cut a deal with Iran that could ultimately lead to them becoming a nuclear power, so his credibility is lacking.

    4. Corker and Alexander both prefer donor and CoC interests over what’s best for the American people.

    5. The President’s comments on Charlottesville condemned violence and hate on both sides. That Corker omits this shows deliberate deceit on Corker’s part or ignorance.

    6. Corker is essentially Steve Cohen-lite (Steve Cohen is the flaming left-wing hack Rep from Memphis and is pushing impeachment basically on the same grounds that Corker raised in his comments and although Corker did not state impeachment he called for ‘radical change’ or else.)

    7. I assume Corker supports AntiFa until I hear otherwise.

    8. Finally, GOP of TN should be embarrassed to have 2 RINO lightweights in the US Senate and the Party needs to offer the voters of TN a legitimate choice/option to these 2 sans a splitter-strategy.

    I voted for law and order. Enforcing the laws is not asking for too much. President Trump stands for law and order. Law enforcement has been dropping the ball.

  31. Just found this on FB from Joe the Plumber:
    TRUE AMERICAN HISTORY:
    Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army. He was a man of unimpeachable integrity. Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia. Lee opposed both secession and slavery. And yet to the historically illiterate left, a man who opposed both slavery and secession has come to symbolize both slavery and secession. Instead of truthfully confronting American history, the left-wing media and the Democratic Party are trying to pin the blame for slavery on those who don’t deserve it. To me there’s a bigger story here – the left’s attempt to blame slavery entirely on the American South. This is a big lie, because number one, most Southerners did not own slaves, nor did most Confederate soldiers. Number two, the Northern Democrats in the preceding 40 years before the Civil War aggressively protected slavery. And they worked in cahoots with Southern Democrats. The fight over slavery wasn’t between North and South. It was between a pro-slavery Democratic Party and the anti-slavery Republicans. This entire controversy, and the larger effort to remove Confederate memorials all over the South, is an attempt to cunningly conceal the Democrats’ historic role in protecting slavery as an institution.

      Martin Niemoller was a Protestant pastor in Germany who opposed Adolf Hitler’s ideas but felt it was not his place to take any actual physical action. He preached against the philosophy espoused by Hitler and was eventually incarcerated for seven years for treasonous statements.

      After the war, he stated the following:

      First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Socialist.
      Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
      Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Jew.
      Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

      I don’t advocate violence. I do advocate protecting my property and my family. How long we wait to protect our beliefs may determine our fate as a nation.

    Heather Heyer’s mother has come out to say she will not be speaking or meeting with President Trump. She said she did not listen to any media filter but came to this conclusion by listening to his Tuesday remarks now that she’s had time, and feels that Pres. Trump has morally equated both sides.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/mother-charlottesville-victim-heather-heyer-says-she-s-received-death-n793691

    “I’m not talking to the president now, I’m sorry,” Bro said. “It’s not that I saw somebody else’s tweet about him, I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters, like Ms. Heyer, with the KKK and the white supremacists.”

    Bro said the White House has tried multiple times to reach out to her, but in her grief and exhaustion following her daughter’s funeral, she’d simply missed their calls. Now, she said the president cannot excuse his defense of white nationalist protesters.

    “You can’t wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying I’m sorry,” she said. “I’m not forgiving for that.”

    The politicians do not understand or cannot differentiate his remarks in how he condemned the Nazis and talked outside of that group, but now even the victim’s mother doesn’t either.

      If the Mom agreed with the initial statement, there was no difference in the third statements.

      This smacks of opportunism. It’s a shame she won’t talk to Trump, but it doesn’t make a difference in the long run.

      Trump did his part in reaching out to her.

      The news media only cares because they need more ‘developments’ to keep talking about Virginia. And the mom, like Romney, is giving them grist for the mill.

      Meh. Trump doesn’t care and he’s not going to cave in to anything that anyone says. And he shouldn’t.

      Right now, Trump is showing everyone that he is in control, and they aren’t. That is, they can all be as mad and condemnatory as they want, but he is the president and they are not, and he’s not going anywhere.

      It’s a tough lesson. But the right message to send, for now. When the time comes, he will soften up and do the “healing” thing people want him to do. But only when he is ready, not when someone like Romney tells him to do so.

          Sure, it doesn’t help Trump. But it has no lasting effect on him, either. Would have been great had she remained kind to him, but the media would have ignored that, anyways, as they did when she first praised Trump.

          Bannon is apparently gone soon. He will be the one to take the fall for Virginia, it seems.

      Not “bad” or “sad”. Her daughter was BLM….she gets pressured by Leftists. She is simply a plain older gal just trying to make sense of her daughter’s death. Our Movement does not rest on this poor gal’s approval.

        No, she marched with them but I saw a few days ago she was a paralegal and decided to participate for the first time in this protest that was local to her. More than likely anti-Trump, but not a bused in Soros paid Antifa member.

      This may sound unkind given the circumstances, but what kind of parents (other than Michael Brown’s) would allow their daughter’s funeral to be televised or members of the press there so that they get on the 6:00 pm news? When the father spoke I could not believe my eyes. We was wearing a polo shirt that looked like he had slept in it and it was unbuttoned. Is that really the best he could do to honor his daughter – show up like he just walked off the 18th green in a nasty sweat.

        Well, apparently, the mother wants to carry on her daughter’s message. From what I read, this was her first time protesting since it was local. She’s going to use this to help her grief. I can’t dispute how she works out her grief. That’s too bad about the father looking like that. He is a registered Democrat, I don’t know about the mother for sure but I imagine also.

    Here is what I do not understand: many more people have been injured and killed by alt left in the last 12 months and much property has been damaged by the alt left than by the alt right. Why has the antifa not been held accountable? Where are the viral stories of those injured by antifa? Not even including the BLM rioters and BLM violence. Antifa gives plenty of material to work with and is an easier battle. We need to get the info as to their purpose, their “volunteers” and their funding. Couple that with the undercover Dem sponsored violence videos from the campaign. Are there video complications? Lists of the Republicans/Trump supporters injured?

    Demand that we have the right of free speech and to support the issues that are important to us. Make it about those who support a strong border are attacked. Those who support good trade deals are attacked. Don’t let them set up Antifa a good guys defeating nazis and that all Trump supporters are nazis and white supremacists. We can’t let them define the issues and what this election was about! We can’t let them define what Trump supporters are supporting.

    We have to counter the narrative and labels!

      I have heard, repeated as truth, that there is much more terrorism comitted by the right than by radical Islam or any on the left.

      I have also been told that President Trump is a Nazi. My pointing out his support of Israel and of his Jewish family members went unheard. The response was that I am part of a proTrump cult.

      You are so right. We must not back down. Our part is to speak the truth and to pray.
      God’s part is to have our back.

    Rep Jim Renacci, (R) OH-16, is leaving Congress and running for Ohio Guv to replace Krooked Kasick.

    Jim Renacci just spent an hour on WKBN Radio (Y-town) answering every caller’s questions, no matter how vicious or insulting.

    Renacci is going around Ohio and conversing with anyone who will have him, about his new ideas for Ohio. Note to political wannabes – good man to follow.

    Jane Timken, current head of the Ohio GOP, is from Renacci’s district (personally will vouch for her).

      Thank you. This REAL news is 1000X more significant than anything a handful of paid malcontents say or do….

      You know, if I found a genie bottle right now, one of my wishes would be that Patriotic Americans ignore the MSM completely (no re-posts). If Antifa dons their ninja suits and chants outdated rhymes, and no one cared, would anyone actually hear them falling in the forest?……or something like that…….

      He’s my Rep and I will vote for him if need be, I don’t know if there is anyone better but I think he is part of the Tuesday group, a moderate Republican. I don’t have any complaints and he was for the first Obamacare repeal/replace they tried to pass. I think he’s been generally supportive.

    My view of the world situation is rooted in my faith. It is my firm belief is that we are up against antiChrist forces and are not–in any way–to cooperate with them.

    That is why I am so confounded by the words and actions of so many who profess Christianity and by their silence about and cooperation with those who are persecuting and eliminating Christians all over the world. I am constantly amazed at how effective the lies of the MSM are in indoctrinating these people.

    When I see “Christians” and “Republicans” engaging in the level of deceit, hatred, and mockery practised by the MSM I usually see people who have elevated money and privilege over God. They seize any excuse to put their own interests first, never mind their faith, or getting at the truth, or any consideration of the common good.

    The left has embraced Islam in all of its forms since legally or illegally they tend to vote for Democrats.

    It is no secret that wherever Islam prevails, the threats to the non-Islamic (and even Islamic) population do, too. It is worth your life to disagree in any way. This total control–along with the tactics used to establish it–is becoming one with the PC culture snd control of the left.

    Although we won the election, we seem to be just one man away from a one world government that will forbid the practice of Christianity or Judaism. That man is Donald Trump. This is not politics as usual.

    The left gave us Obama and the Clintons, who helped overthrow nearly every Western friendly leader in the Islamic world. They helped create and arm Isis. They accepted funding from Arab States, enriched themselves by stealing from the masses, spied on ordinary citizens and weaponized government agencies to be used against those with opposing views. Thereby, they created a path for a caliphate. In doing all of this the lies they told us were accepted and repeated as gospel by the PC forces of the MSM.

    The left is now embraced by some Christians, Republicans, and Conservatives. In supporting and celebrating the left they embrace lies, hate, and arrogance even as thesse things destroy their reason and consume them.

    They, and the rest of us, are marked for complete destruction unless the salt of the earth embraces their role and becomes salt.

    IMO, this is not the time to keep our head down and go along with things to get along.

    We are winners.
    Let’s keep it that way.

    The Stockholm Syndrome prevalent in these people is astounding!

    AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR FELLOW JEWS
    View story at Medium.com

    FACT: There is only ONE person every American is well aware of who engaged with the NAZIS and profited because of that unconscionable relationship with them.

    That person is George Soros. The offspring of both parents who hated the Jewish people.
    There is video of Soros stating, “this was the most exciting time of my life and I have no regrets.”

    George Soros should be sued for everything he has and his wealth distributed to the ancestors of all those he helped send to the ovens.
    Yes, it is George Soros who was the NAZI sympathizer.

    It is a myth that Soros worked with the NAZIS to save his life.
    He worked with the NAZIS because he grew up with a disdain for the Jewish people.
    No amount of twisting oneself into a pretzel will change the fact that George Soros hates the Jewish people.

    This shaming of Jews who support President Trump is reprehensible beyond belief.
    Furthermore, any Jew who supports George Soros is spitting on the grave of all their ancestors.
