    Whoa! It didn’t take long for Rep. Louie Gohmert to catch flak for his appearance on Stuart Varney’s show today from George Soros’s Open Society Foundation president, Patrick Gaspard.

    Louie’s public response is okay but not nearly as good as the letter he sent Mr. Gaspard in reply. I have it on email but not in a form that can be linked here.

    Hint: Anyone who would call Louie Gohmert antisemitic has no clue.

      George Soros is no Jew. He bragged on 60 minutes about how happy he was taking property from the Jewish people. He said that he (Soros) loves taking over country after country and fancies himself as a god.

        From Wiki:

        “Soros was born in Budapest in the Kingdom of Hungary to a well-to-do non-observant Jewish family, who, like many upper-middle class Hungarian Jews at the time, were uncomfortable with their roots.

        Soros has wryly described his home as a Jewish antisemitic home.[27] His mother Erzsébet (also known as Elizabeth) came from a family that owned a thriving silk shop. His father Tivadar (also known as Teodoro) was a lawyer[28] and had been a prisoner of war during and after World War I until he escaped from Russia and rejoined his family in Budapest.[29][30] The two married in 1924.

        Tivadar was an Esperantist writer.[31] In 1936, Soros’s family changed their name from the German-Jewish Schwartz to Soros, as protective camouflage in increasingly antisemitic Hungary.[32][33] Tivadar liked the new name because it is a palindrome and because of its meaning. In Hungarian, soros means “next in line,” or “designated successor”; in Esperanto it means “will soar.”

        Self-hating Jewish anti-faithful part of the tribes. Very sad. And dangerous.

    🚨LIVE: President Donald Trump IMPORTANT Holiday Speech from the White House

      This is the 2nd, evening, Hanukkah WH celebration today, and the speech that Mr. Pollock gave is really something.

      He did a minor slip up (thanking the President and Mrs. Trump, started to say Ivank and then corrected himself. I think it was in the joy and celebration of the moment and he got flustered on that, but mention it because it would be easy to imagine this flub being the lead in the late night comedy routines).

        It was a lovely ceremony – an honor for Mr. Pollock in spite of his incredible loss – it is often through grief that God blesses us to carry on with His work – in ways we would never have imagined –

        Thanks for posting, bessie and sharing your thoughts – God Bless You!

        Most definitely, annie – PT is a polished communicator – he speaks not only to the person with whom he is conversing but, to all of us who are listening – God has blessed him mightily – yes – with amazing people skills – his concern and warmth shine through as well.

    Happy for Heather Nauert, sure she’ll do a great job.

    I was really hoping for John James in the role, though. But maybe he wants to focus on running for Senate again in 2020.

      “Please, God, it’s not fair that he should have to die while Jeb continues to live!” the fake Bush is reported as saying. “Please, take my dumb little brother and let my dad live—he has so much left to do here on Earth! Jeb is just annoying and pathetic. No one wants him around.”
      Jeb Bush then quietly agrees to be buried alive.

      From VTB:
      Below, are some notes provided from research by the Translator, MissPiggy who did this video for us all:

      (German document referred to in video and below:,-242,723)

      Page 12 Case I.3: “Children from ethnic national families” In a daycare center, two siblings stand out, who are particularly reserved and have little to share, e.g. from the weekend. So in the morning circle at the beginning of the week, they behave in a silent and passive way. At the same time, there are no so-called discipline problems, these children seem to be especially good ‘. In addition, traditional gender roles in the educational styles are recognizable: The girl wears dresses and braids, they are taught at home how to do household chores.


      Germany Launches ‘How to Identify Nazi Parents’ Guide For Schools
      A new booklet for daycare workers that claims to help identify “Nazi parents” suggests looking out for girls with braided hair and athletic boys.

      The 60-page booklet, entitled Ene, Mene, Muh – And You’re Out! was designed by the far-left “anti-hate” Amadeu Antonio Foundation ,which is headed by former Stasi informant Annette Kahane and based in Berlin with the foreword being written by Social Democrat (SPD) Family Minister Franziska Giffey, Berliner Kurier reports.

      Ms Kahane made headlines in 2015 after the German government recruited her and the foundation to scour social media for “xenophobic posts” during the height of the migrant crisis.…

      The case studies echo research presented by Antifa groups in 2016, which claimed that “Volkisch families,” those who believe in countryside living and traditional German culture and values, posed a threat to Germany.

      Antifascist Action group member Olaf Meyer warned of “young couples [who] buy farms and restore them together with their relatives and friends.”…

      The Amadeu Antonio Foundation has been roundly criticised in the past, not just for Kahane’s former Stasi ties but also for their methods which have been likened to the old East German secret police.…

        Agitation against refugees in social networks: Guidance…
        First: How to recognize racist agitation against refugees

        To become active against racist agitation, it is necessary to create an awareness of racist utterances, to recognize them for what they are. Essentially, refugees are collectively devalued by hate speech, always in accordance with discrimination by society. Insults against refugees, frequently paired with racist…
        • Normalizing discrimination: “It is no wonder that…”

        • Projection of societal problems, such as sexism, criminality or lack of housing for example, onto “refugees”

        • Denigrating terms, for example “economic refugee”, suggests that the basic right to asylum is being exploited by people who are only coming to Germany for economic reasons, not because they are seeking shelter from persecution

        • Lies about refugees or alleged criminality, violence, rapes, forged documents — often concealed as one’s own alleged experience…

        Often racist agitation is disguised as satire or humor, or afterwards the excuse is made: It was just a joke.

          This is a very interesting situation to watch develop. Not super easy to find info what with the extraordinary news blackout on it.

          So far tho, the French seem mainly concerned with cost of living, but the Dutch have more of a “keep the immigrants out” bias.

          Wish I could still read French! Pretty stupid to lose those language skills. Oh well…

              Maybe at least you can still read, tho?

              Conversation usually goes before reading. I know I can’t speak it anymore, but it’s kind of shocking I can’t even READ it. And all of these tweets from Europe are in French, Dutch, etc. Total pain.

              Language is the one area where English speakers are usually pretty “priveledged”. So many around the world use it. But these darn Europeans, hmph! hehehe.

    Federal Judge Opens Discovery Into Clinton Email Usage
    DECEMBER 06, 2018

    Court Excoriates Obama State Department/Justice Department for Possibly Acting in “Bad Faith” and Colluding “to Scuttle Public Scrutiny” of Clinton Private Email Server

    Court Criticizes Current Justice Department for “Chicanery”

    District Court Judge Lamberth Orders “Proposed Plan and Schedule for Discovery Within Ten Days”

    Discovery Must Also Explore Whether Clinton Intentionally Used Private Email Server to “skirt FOIA”

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that, in a ruling excoriating both the U.S. Departments of State and Justice, U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth has ordered both agencies to join Judicial Watch in submitting a proposed schedule for discovery into whether Hillary Clinton sought to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a private email system and whether the State Department acted in “bad faith” by failing to disclose knowledge of the email system. The decision comes in a FOIA lawsuit related to the Benghazi terrorist attack.

    Specially, Lamberth ruled:

    … the Court ORDERS the parties to meet and confer to plan discovery into (a) whether Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email while Secretary of State was an intentional attempt to evade FOIA; (b) whether the State Department’s attempts to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and (c) whether State has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s requests.

    Terming Clinton’s use of her private email system, “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency,” Lamberth wrote in his MEMORANDUM OPINION:

    … his [President Barack Obama’s] State and Justice Departments fell far short. So far short that the court questions, even now, whether they are acting in good faith. Did Hillary Clinton use her private email as Secretary of State to thwart this lofty goal [Obama announced standard for transparency]? Was the State Department’s attempt to settle this FOIA case in 2014 an effort to avoid searching – and disclosing the existence of – Clinton’s missing emails? And has State ever adequately searched for records in this case?

    [More of Lamberth’s ruling at above Judicial Watch webpage].
