    Cheering terrorism: Democrats must deal with their far-left antisemitism problem

    If we’re ever going to obtain peace in the Middle East, we’re going to have to confront the reality of rabid antisemitism, not only in the Muslim world, but also in the the Democratic Party and in the news and cultural media whose political arm the Democrats comprise.

    It’s easier to pretend it’s not there, but that won’t change anything. At some point soon, the party leadership will have to make a choice: either stand up to the strident hatred of Jews simmering under the surface of its progressive left wing or continue to let it simmer until it boils over.

    ow does this kind of hatred survive? One reason is that the political left has long harbored rabid antisemitism in its ranks because it finds the perpetrators useful. Strongly-worded statements aside, there was no unequivocal condemnation from Democratic leaders of the parade of progressives in Times Square openly celebrating the rape and slaughter of innocent people because they happen to be Jewish.

    The Democratic Socialists of America and its various state and local chapters cheered exuberantly and proclaimed the terrorists to be the victims. How many Democratic members of the House are in good standing with the DSA? Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ihan Omar (D-Minn.) come to mind. Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) certainly is. You might have a hard time finding any “progressive” Democrat who isn’t.

    Will the Democratic Party confront the dangerous antisemitic extremists who are in good standing in their own ranks? Don’t hold your breath, especially when the media are so unwilling to hold them accountable.

    Democrats Block Hawley Resolution to Condemn Antisemitic Activities on College Campuses

    U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) delivered remarks on the Senate floor and called for unanimous consent on his resolution condemning Hamas and the antisemitic student groups on college campuses that have celebrated the Oct. 7 terrorist attack against Israel. Senator Hawley wrote to all senators this week requesting they support his resolution. When Senator Hawley attempted to pass his resolution, it was blocked by Democrats.

    "Almost as disturbing as the facts of these terrible attacks themselves is the response of some people in this country. On our college campuses in this country who promptly took to the streets, to the courtyards of these campuses, the airwaves, to broadcast their support for this genocide against the people of Israel," said Senator Hawley.

      I believe individuals on the far-left possess a perspective where what is commonly seen as positive or good is perceived as negative. From my standpoint, their mindsets have been significantly distorted, and this skewed perspective seems prevalent globally. It would appear many have been affected by propaganda that really could be viewed as totally illogical.  When conversing with this type, it is very obvious they mimic the same views, and share the same statements as if programmed to use identical words.

        I think it is more of a Western Civ issue, Canada, EU, Australia, America.

        Its not something I would even call new, as one could look back and see Europe has gone through a variant of this more than once before, it is something GA alluded to in its cyclical nature.

        Or one could take the phrase I have mentioned before as well... Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times.

        While it may be an oversimplification, it is clear what phase of that cycle we are in.

        I saw an interesting live graphic the other day, that tracked the population size of various faiths for the last couple hundred years.  It was interesting to note that Christianity a hundred years ago was prevalent in numbers more so than it is today... a noteworthy thing considering the population was half what it is today globally... while the Muslim faith has exploded in numbers in the last 50 years, coming close to matching those identified as Christian.

        I think can see the direction things are going within EU nations especially, I suspect places like France, Germany, England will eventually become predominantly of Muslim faith, as the newer generations seem to have either a non-religious outlook or favor the more structured and extreme nature of Islam over the 'woke' Christianity we see propagated today,

      The use of terms that can be viewed as stereotyping to point out characteristics or tendencies associated with political ideology is generally acceptable in the context of political discourse.  When conversing it would be difficult not to use logical terms that are widely used in political conversations.

        I seem to have had left off my last post mid-thought.

        The point I was making in regards to the two faiths - Christian and Muslim - alluded back to the "weak men make for hard times"... then what comes next ..."hard times make for strong men".

        I am no expert, but the Islamic faith seems particularly favorable to "Toxic Masculinity" which might be why it is becoming so popular and gaining so many converts.

        Whereas the current "woke" Christianity:

        Pope Francis’ recent gesture of welcome for transgender Catholics
        https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/st … ome-change

        What the Pope's Stance on Blessing LGTBQ Unions Could Mean
        https://time.com/6320335/pope-francis-i … -religion/

        Well, lets just say if you are particularly devout in your faith, and believe in the sanctity of the Bible's teachings, you might not be too keen on the direction your Christian faith is taking you right now.

        Things like MGTOW and Red Pilled didn't exist 40 years ago, because our society (particularly the Left - Progressives) hadn't become hateful to men, especially white men, like it is now.

        American men that travel outside the us, really have their eyes opened to how bad our society has become, IE:

        "Bulgaria offers almost all of the quality of life, accouterments, and conveniences that you’ll find in any of the developed western “democracies” but without the overwhelming feminism, globalism, “diversity” and cultural self-loathing
        https://roselandj.medium.com/bulgaria-i … ad92bdcbcc

        But for those men who cannot travel to find an escape from a culture that has turned against them, the alternative is a religion like Islam.  And by extension, women who are looking for strong, dominating men, may go in this direction as well.

          Dominating, for sure, Ken.

          Strong? No.

          No sane Conservative woman would go in that direction. Far Left women and men already have and will continue to do so.

          Consider the male hippies of the 60’s. They were the most misogynistic men around. This is one of the dirty secrets of that era which continues today. Yet today, those men are “educators” and members of the “anointed elite.”

          Leftist men in that category were weak, same as now. All you have to do is look at their support of antisemitism to know how weak they are, just as the Nazi’s were weak.

          The problem is that while “Conservative” men pay lip service to conservative values, they are also the first ones to turn their backs on truly strong men, in favor of mushy moderates.

          This is why the Left is winning, America is losing, and anti-semitism reigns supreme in the land of the “free.”

            Savvy, how are you doing this fine evening?

            Could you elaborate on this, particularly the latter half.

            To be clear, I am not commenting on what I believe, merely what I observe the trends to mean.  There are always reasons for things happening, there is a reason why Islam is taking the Western World by storm (relatively speaking).

            A man that is looking for religion that supports his beliefs, his ideas of family, marriage, community... today's Western Christianity is a tough sell, especially with a Pope supporting such progressive ideas and a society that has trashed all moral norms and denigrates men.

              Hello Ken, I was thinking in terms of the moderate’s support for Nikki Haley.

              https://www.npr.org/2023/11/28/12155629 … op-primary

              She is supported by Charles Koch, a man who is apparently fine with open borders (he loves cheap labor). I am also disappointed that Haley is so soft on abortion. While I do not necessarily believe this is a hill Republicans should die on, her moderate views lack spine. Let’s face it, she does not have the courage to tell the truth about the push (by Democrats) to kill a child who has reached full term, and how this is an abomination. If she were to win, Koch, Black Rock, and all the rest of her financial supporters will make her pay the piper. And I guarantee you, she will gladly pay…America be damned. So long as she has a seat at the UN, she’ll be a happy sellout.

              And so the Left can win again…because moderates cannot bear to look beyond their own noses to see the truth and do their part to save our country.

              I say that the Left is winning because they are. You know that. The problem is that moderates choose to ignore this truth. And so they vote for Haley or, in the case of our kind friend, they write in the name of Theodore Roosevelt, as if this will somehow help the conservative cause.

              It will not, obviously.

              Somehow, moderates believe that if they give enough, the Left will see reason. They delude themselves. The Left cares nothing for reason. They care about power and control.

              Oh, how they want absolute control.

              Today, American Jews are rallying for Palestine, which is the same as rallying for Hamas.
              Hamas does not care about their support. Hamas cannot wait to throw any Jew off of the tallest building they can find. If they can behead their children, so much the better.

              Also, I read ahead about your mention of Stern. I’ve not read his book, but I have heard him speak. I appreciate his views, thus far.

              As for Pope Francis, conservative Catholics are alarmed. In fact, many have been ringing the alarm bells for quite some time.

            A follow up reply, based on a book just recommended.

            The book, almost 20 years old now, foretold fairly well the predicament we now find ourselves in, the author was wrong about the timeline, which was certainly impacted by Trump's election and subsequent efforts.

            His argument was that the Western social-democratic state was unsustainable, that care of the elderly, childcare, health care and insurance, have been slowly taken over by the state... replacing the responsibility and purpose of the Family and Parents in general.

            These state programs erode humanity's basic sense of self-reliance to a point at which a more resilient group of people, Muslims in his view, will take control. He said that Western civilization is exhausted because its nations are so focused on moral and cultural relativism, with "diversity" and "racism" as their new favorite words they are unable to see that their existence is threatened.

            I would take it a step further and say we are committing suicide as a nation, that the current state of affairs of those driving our government, our corporations and society in general have detached entirely from reality.

            For example. the Left refuses to acknowledge the reality of profound differences between men and women. Hence, we have the senseless support of 6'3 Transmen competing against 5'2 women in sports.

            The more science knows about the male and female brain, not to mention male and female hormones, the more it confirms important built-in differences between the sexes.  That didn't fit the narrative, so they went into the pseudo-psychological and feelings not facts direction creating 72 different sexes, non-sexes and whatever else... complete detachment from reality.

            Feminists and others on the left do not want to acknowledge that sex between two people who are not committed to one another usually means much more to women than to men. It is too painful to acknowledge that men are far more capable of having anonymous, emotionally meaningless sex than are women. Therefore, feminism has now taught two generations of women that they are just as capable of enjoying emotionless sex with many partners as are men.  More denial of reality, more destruction of social norms and family cohesion.

            Back to the author's points... he views anti-Americanism as a symptom of civilizational exhaustion, while Islam's popularity rises in opposition to porn, children born out of wedlock, immodest women, and immorality. However, in his view America is the most benign hegemonic power the world has ever seen. He believes America will be the last and only country (Europe, Canada and the rest of Western nations will be taken over by Muslims) that will retain its sense of self-preservation, but this is not a given, as America's enemies know that it ran from Vietnam (and now Afghanistan) and they hope that America will continue to flee when faced with a challenge.

            I think that last bit is a given when considering what we have running our country today, the ineptness of not only those selected to hold critical positions of power, but the drive for equity over qualifications and capability, and he need to fill quotas based on identity politics.

            His final argument is that Islamic extremists will not need to carry out an outright attack. Instead, Europe will collapse from "wimpiness" or "multicultural sensitivity" leading to betrayal of the state's core values.

            I'm thinking, at this point in time, he may have over-estimated America's self-preservation, or perhaps he under-estimated the power of outside forces that are impacting us today (IE - the WEF, and the impact of Social Media corporate behemoths like Google, Microsoft, Facebook).

            The book was by Mark Steyn - America Alone.

    Stories of torture, torment revealed by Israeli children kidnapped by Hamas terrorists

    Children returned home malnourished and traumatized by their Hamas captors

    JERUSALEM - As more of the Israeli hostages kidnapped by Hamas during the Oct. 7 terror attack in southern Israel are freed as part of a U.S.-Qatari-Egyptian brokered cease-fire deal, stories of the horrors endured during their 50-plus days in captivity are slowly coming to light.

    Instead of the usual chatter, crying and laughing typical in pediatric wards, Dr. Yael Mozer Glassberg, a senior physician in the Department of Returned Children at the Schneider Medical Center in Tel Aviv, who is part of the specially assembled team of professionals tasked with treating the returned hostages, told Fox News Digital, "It is very, very quiet here."

    On Tuesday, Deborah Cohen, the aunt of 12-year-old Eitan Yahalomi, who was freed on Monday, told French TV Channel BFM that the terrorists forced her young nephew at gunpoint to watch raw video footage of the horrors they carried out on Oct. 7.

    "It is the kind of horror film that no one wants to see," she said. "They forced him to watch it and if he or any of the other children cried, the terrorists threatened them with a gun to keep quiet."

    Cohen also recounted how Yahalomi, who was kidnapped during the Oct. 7 attack from his home on Kibbutz Nir Oz without his family, was put on the back of a motorcycle by the terrorists and driven across the breached border fence into Gaza. As they drove him through the streets there, she said, people came outside and began to jeer and beat him.

    "I wanted to hope that he would have been treated well there, but apparently not… they’re monsters," said Cohen, adding that Yahalomi’s father, Ohad, is still a hostage.

    Yahalomi’s grandmother, Esther, told Israeli media outlets that "For the first 16 days, he was alone in a closed room."

    n another rare testimony, Thomas Hand, the father of 9-year-old Emily Hand, told a media outlet that his daughter, who was freed on Saturday, still speaks in whispers.

    "The most shocking thing about meeting Emily was the fact that she spoke in whispers, to the point it was really hard to hear her," the father, a dual Israeli-Irish national, said. "I had to put my ear very close to her mouth to hear…. in captivity she was told not to make any noise and you can see the terror in her eyes."

    He also retold how he had to share with Emily the harsh news that Narkis, the woman who raised her on Kibbutz Be’eri where she grew up, was murdered.

    Alma, 13, and Noam Or, 16, siblings who were released by Hamas on Saturday, received similarly devastating news, according to reports from those close to them. Relatives said the two teenagers were imprisoned in a secluded room for 50 days and through that time had been hoping to see their mother, Yonat, as soon as they were released.

    Greeted by their grandmother and an older brother, the two were immediately informed that Yonat was murdered by the terrorists on Oct. 7. Their father, Dror, remains a hostage, Israeli authorities said.

    "They were fed but not regularly," Raviv said in an interview on Sunday. "Some days they did not get anything but some a few pieces of bread and both Keren and her mom, Ruty, lost about six to eight kilograms in weight," (approximately13-17 pounds.)

    Raviv said that the family was forced to sleep on plastic benches and begged their captors to take them to the bathroom. Sometimes they had to wait for more than an hour and a half to be allowed to go, she said.

    According to Israel’s Ministry of Health, a total of 69 hostages have been freed so far, 51 of them Israeli citizens and a further 18 foreign nationals, mostly from Thailand who had been working in Israel on the day of the attack. Out of those released, 30 are children, 20 are women, mostly mothers and senior citizens, and one man.

    Israel believes that nine Israeli children, including a 10-month-old baby, remain in captivity.

      These are barbarians, and those who have supported them have blood on their hands. I hope they are eliminated, and the Palestinians need to be closely policed wherever they end up. This kind of genocide must never be allowed to happen again.

      It is being reported (yet under the caveat that it has not been fully confirmed) that the ten-month-old baby, his 3-year-old sister, and his mom are dead.

      I never thought I would live to see the day when we would see protests in America defending, and making martyrs out of pure killers.

          How do you sort this out though? Hamas was voted in in 2006.  No election since that time. Half of the population currently in Gaza is under 18 so they had no part in putting Hamas in power.  Hamas wrongfully killed 1400 Jews but the death toll in Gaza now is 15,000..half children.  When is enough enough?  Literally no one, in any significant  number is supporting Hamas. That is complete right-wing hyperbolic BS.  But I'm wondering how many innocent Palestinians need to die before Israel feels vindicated?  Please, don't go over how horrendous the actions of Hamas were. That is noted and accepted.  Just tell me how many Palestinians need to die. Will it be okay for Israel to perpetrate complete genocide on the Palestinians?  I mean we're at 15,000 dead already and supposedly the respiratory diseases and bacterial infections that are rampant in the area will claim just as many. Cool stuff? Justified?

          If wiping Palestinians off the face of the earth is okay why didn't we wipe Germans off the face of the Earth after World war II? My God what the German people did to the Jews, where was the retribution? These were some of the sickest people in history. These were a people who put Hitler into power, overwhelmingly.   Why did we let them remain? Why didn't we flatten their country?  Can you reconcile both situations?  How are the situations different? Germans killed 6 million Jews.  Yet we let them walk away? 
          On another note, I am very proud that Biden has gotten out so many hostages.  And yes, it is Biden's doing. He is currently the president and hostages have been released therefore he is 100% responsible. No other factors  impact.  Just sticking to the simplistic right wing thinking here.  If you sit in the office then everything is your fault and you can  also take credit for the growth of seeds that were planted before your time. Let's apply it across all situations.

            Are you really suggesting that the war is about "vindication"?  Or revenge, maybe?  Hint; the goal is to remove Hamas, not kill Palestines, and that is what it is all about.  Not revenge or vindication, but to remove the animal that caused such ugly devastation in Israel.

            Perhaps Palestinians should be helping the Israeli's, giving information and pointing to Hamas.

            "Hamas wrongfully killed 1400 Jews but the death toll in Gaza now is 15,000..half children.  When is enough enough?"

            When Hamas and all of its followers are eliminated.

            "If wiping Palestinians off the face of the earth is okay why didn't we wipe Germans off the face of the Earth after World war II? "

            After World War II, the German country and its citizens were devastated.  Hundreds of thousands of men, women, children as well as German soldiers were killed.  The vast majority of Germany was in ruins.

            BUT, the Germans are an intelligent people.  They learned from this and changed.  They admitted what they had done to the Jews was wrong.

            From 1945 to 2018, the German government paid approximately $86.8 billion in restitution and compensation to Holocaust victims and their heirs.

            Will the Palestinian people ever admit they are wrong? Will they ever own what Hamas has done to the innocent people of Israel?  Will they remove from the Hamas charter the goal of killing Jews?  Will Palestinian end the practice of paying money to people who kill Jews significant sums of money?

            This is just the start of the atrocities committed by Hamas and the Palestinians.  I don't care who voted Hamas into power.  They could have accomplished none of this without the support of the Palestinian people.

            The results of new market research conducted by the Arab World for Research and Development (AWRAD)1 among Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) give a penetrating insight into the mindset of the Palestinians.   When taken as a whole, the results indicate that an overwhelming percentage of Palestinians support the October 7 massacre (75%), reject coexistence with Israel (85.9%), are committed to the restoration of “historical Palestine” as a final resolution (71.1%), and support the creation of a Palestinian state “from the river to the sea” (74.7%) as the end of the Israeli Palestinian conflict."

            75% Support what Hamas did.  Let that sink in for a minute  71 % support the elimination of Israel.

            What does this say about Palestinians?

              But you're looking at that war from the other side of history. No one had any way of knowing that the people of Germany wouldn't fall under the next dictators spell, obviously susceptible minds that most likely harbored hateful ambitions for a long time to come.

                Are Palestinians smart people?  Seems they share similarities with the German people of the 1930s.

                  I think you are correct in the comparison. Terrorist organization or authoritarian dictator, what's the difference? I guess the common link is that the human mind is susceptible to propaganda. It's malleable.   I suppose people look to follow what they believe may bring them some prosperity no matter how horrendous.  It bill of goods is being sold and I'm sure many believe the end justifies the means.  German citizens’ collaboration with the Nazis was widespread. The oppressive nature of the Nazi state meant that it was difficult not to be complicit in Nazi activities at some level, although some people played a much more active role in helping the Nazis to achieve their aims than others.
                  I'm sure some Palestinians latched on to the idea that Hamas was promoting about getting rid of the Jews but many other Palestinians latched onto their promise to make life better in Gaza..which was obviously  a lie.  Hamas has never been about what's a good for the Palestinian people.  They are useful idiots in their bigger picture. Just people to be used and manipulated for the advantage of Hamas.  Could they have had a revolution to overthrow them? I suppose so and I think we're all certain where that would go.

                    I met Palestinian some people last time I was in Israel a few years ago. I met a man who was very intelligent and articulate. He told me the Palestinian people have been brainwashed for a long time about wanting death and sacrificing themselves for a free Palestine.  He then pointed out that it is the common people who do all of the sacrificing. The top leaders in Hamas who control the money sacrifice nothing.  It is not their children or loved ones that are sacrificed for anything.  None of them wear bomb vests.

                    I think about him and hope he and his family are okay. He lived in the West Bank.

              Good and Decent people in America should be very afraid.

              This mindset that you speak of that was predominant in Germany, that is prominent in Palestinians and their supporters world-wide today...

              This is the mindset taking hold in the Democratic Party, in those who will make excuses for it no matter what their eyes see or ears hear.  It's in the MSM rhetoric that warns of what Trump and his supporters will do... in truth it is what the 'Left' most earnestly wants to do to any who oppose their perspective, their ideology, their every effort to force their beliefs upon all others.  Identity Politics.

              As some who argued not so long ago, in these very forums, about whatever it took to remove Trump from office, the ends justified their means, and for those who have taken the time to do the research, for those with open minds... they know what occurred during the 2020 election, they know what happened regarding the truth about Hunter's laptop being suppressed, the shadow banning of alternate views on Social Media, and so much more.

              The question remains to be seen... are we going to go down the road that Germany in the 1930s travelled, that so many other nations traveled when they turned on freedoms and enlightenment and became tyrannies of oppression and subjugation.

              People should be afraid... right now the few remaining people with the funds and willingness to fight are being challenged, attacked, destroyed right before our eyes... Elon Musk, Donald Trump, anyone trying to maintain free speech and America as a sovereign nation beholden to the people, not to autocratic/elite authority.   When the establishment has finished with them, there will be none left to fight on our behalf... and the road that Germany travelled in the 1930s will be America's next road travelled. That fork in the road is imminently upon us.

                Very well said, Ken.

                I will add one footnote: Germany is traveling down the same dark path today that they did back in the 30’s. They have learned nothing. (Something worth researching)

                America is nearly as bad as Germany. Apparently, at least more than half of Americans are as naive as the Nazi’s were back then. That includes some Conservatives and many American Jews.

                Welcome to Biden’s America, or more specifically, Obama’s 3rd term.

                Obama is pro-Iran. Biden, Obama’s puppet, is also pro- Iran. Both Obama and Biden have rewarded Iran at every turn, even on September 11th… even on Veteran’s Day.

                And we wonder why anti-semitism is so prevalent.

                The attack on Israel by Hamas would never have happened under Trump.

                Under Trump, everyday Americans had money in their pockets; food was affordable; interest rates were low. It was not a sin to drive our cars and afford gasoline.

                Now, the USA, and the rest of the world is turning into a sh*t sh*w.

                If the Democrats win the next election, America is dead, and so is the rest of the world. Iran, with the backing of China, will destroy Israel and America, just as they have always said they want to do.
                Sadly, America will have funded most of their destructive efforts.

                Progressives, who lust for control, will have a moment of happiness under another regime, but that joy will turn sour soon enough once they realize their freedom is gone and they are now living rather meagerly under the nose of a dictatorship.

                As far as Iran is concerned, all Americans are still the infidels. Hamas will not care about (Progressive’s)  allegiance. Iran will view them as the great Satan. (Their words)

                Apparently, this is why Hamas believes it is fine when they burn Jewish babies alive, rape children, behead children.

                Israel does none of that to Palestinians.

                But the Progressives will defend Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Antifa.

                Strange. Disgusting.

            Sick of hearing this -- there are no facts to back your statement up, except numbers offered by a terrorist group.

            Israel is taking great care to prevent killing civilians.

            The Palestinians have waged war for many decades on Israel. The people of Israel have lived with their warring ways for decades.  Israel has a right to live in peace.  The Palestinians need to either leave Gaza or be governed by Israel and live in peace. Unfortunately, more don't truely know more about these people, and their life quest to do away with the state of Israel.

They act as if it's not a big deal, when I mention how difficult it is to find things made in America. Or when I ask them to show me Palestine on a map or explain Oct. 7 to me.
    Long story, won't go into these two examples right now, but something eye-opening must happen. Preferably, not the destructive type of eye-opening!!

      Ken and Sazzy's shared insights resonate deeply with me, as they align with my own thoughts. While I strive to maintain a hopeful outlook, I can't shake the growing concern that Americans are awakening to the potential detrimental impact of the Democrats and leftists on the nation. It seems like they are steering America towards a path riddled with muddy puddles,  and great unnecessary challenges over the past few years due to poor governing.

      My perspective is shaped by my role as a poll watcher and my keen awareness of public sentiments expressed on social media and in the broader media landscape. The polls consistently reflect a decline in support for all of Biden's agendas and his overall job performance—a decline I find unprecedented. Despite the persistent optimism in left-leaning media about his chances in 2024, the stark public dissatisfaction, as revealed by the polls, renders such predictions increasingly implausible and, frankly, foolish.

      The heart of America lies in its hard work and the rewards it offers—freedom and its accompanying privileges. I believe a significant majority of sensible Americans, appreciating the values upon which the nation was built, are not buying into the leftist narrative. The vocal minority on the far left may be making noise, but history has shown that, in the end, their influence is drowned out by the majority of Americans who genuinely love their country and reject the unnecessary turmoil.

        That minority is roughly 25% hard-core believers, with another 20% not believers so much as either too clueless to understand what it really going on, or too dependent on the Government for handouts so they will always vote Democrat.

        So the Democrats, one way or the other, have built in about 45% of the votes... however you want to describe those voters. 

        Add to that their new Wild Card that worked so well for them in 2020, those 'Mail In Ballots' that are sent out to voters with no way of verifying who really filled them out or how many they received... and you have the means of winning every election.

        This is why I believe, that while the MSM is panicking, and certain pundits are raising the alarm, there is no panic from the Administration or those DC insiders that already know the 'Fix is In'.  The chances of Biden losing the next election is not a bet I would take.

        The most powerful people in the world, the most powerful corporations in the world, and the DC Establishment will not let that occur... unless it is to a candidate like Nikki Haley who will essentially be a more polished cohesive front man, as Biden is, to their agendas.

        They are not going to let the American people dictate to them whether or not they can continue to have their Open Borders - Open Society, or their Great Reset - Agenda 2030.

        This is why I am always bringing these topics up... unless you understand what the WEF is, what the goals of the WEF and UN (and IMF, WD, WHO) are, and the very powerful Trillionaires and Trillion dollar corporations behind them... then you don't understand what you are fighting, if you think it is merely Democrat vs. Republican you are wrong. 

        Its those few remaining well off individuals like Elon Musk and Donald Trump fighting to save Free Speech, Liberty, the Nation of America and thereby the Constitution being the preeminent Law of the Land not beholden to International law or International Agencies. 

        This election is for 'all the marbles' so to speak... after which will come CBDC, Social Credit, Restricted Speech, Restricted Travel, etc.  a truly Progressive Utopia will be brought to us all.

          How exactly is Trump fighting to save free speech?

          He’s once again calling on the federal government to take action against NBCUniversal for its MSNBC criticism of him.

          He called on the government to “come down hard on MSNBC and make them pay for their illegal political activity,” adding, “Much more to come, watch!” what a whiner. 

          Trump also suggested Wednesday on Truth Social he wants the Justice Department to go after his enemies, lambasting the Biden administration for its criminal cases against him and warning it “opens up a very big and dangerous Pandora’s Box.” “Joe Biden should stop his Election Interfering Thugs before it is too late for him and the rest of the Country,” Trump added. “To ALL Democrats, be careful what you wish for"

          Really? This is America? This is fascist stuff.

          Free speech as long as it doesn't criticize the orange Jesus...

          Literally nothing but grievance, whiny victim nonsense and fascist statements come out of this man's mouth

            You are correct, it IS fascist stuff, out of the playbook of the National Socialist Party or the Bolshevik Party, or whatever type of extreme you prefer, that signals the end of open Democracy and the onset of Tyranny.

            This is what you do to political leaders and influential business men that try to oppose the oncoming oppression, the strongest and most willing to stand against it are destroyed politically or economically.

            Once those that have the means of standing against the Tyranny are disposed of, then any semblance of decency, restraint or impartiality can be discarded and the reign of terror can commence.

            They will jail Trump (at the least), they will find a way to sideline Musk, they will clamp down on all media support for either of them.

            They absolutely hate the 'will of the people'.

            The idea that the peasants of America would get in the way of their NWO, Great Reset, Agenda 2030 goals is reprehensible to them.

            They will not allow another Trump presidency; no evil is too great to prevent it.  This will prove to be very prophetic in a couple years, I hope you remember that you were warned.

            CBDC, restrictions on Travel, on Speech, on what you can buy... these things are already a reality in China, and are being rolled out in the EU and Canada as I type this... after November 2024, its our turn.

            What is most unfortunate, is that too few Americans truly know what is at stake and what is to come with a Biden re-election.

            For example, CBDC would become a reality:

            President of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde, announces the launch of the EU's central bank digital currency (CBDC)—the digital euro—which will enable unelected technocrats at the ECB to program how, when, where, on what and by whom it can be spent, including the imposition of social credit, carbon allowance and vaccine passport systems.

            And despite the lie that "cash is here to stay", you can be absolutely certain that megalomaniacal technocrats such as Lagarde have every intention of gradually phasing out cash altogether, so eventually people will be forced to use CBDCs whether they like it or not.

              Christians have known all along that the time will come when some will be exempt from the right to buy or sell. The pieces are in place. The youth of today are brainwashed by the Left, and in another 15 years, they may have a certain amount of power and ambition to close the deal that will destroy America once and for all.

              Until then, we may be able to turn the tide temporarily.

              Granted, we are swimming against a destructive current.

              We must not give in to defeat, Ken. Vote for strength. It will be a miracle if America wins, but sometimes miracles are granted. Giving in to defeat is not an option. America was not built upon weakness. Not even remotely.

                  Do you find that the "me" or "us"  first coincides with the teachings of of Christianity? The words of Jesus?  Personally, I don't believe Jesus was an isolationist.

                  The whole MAGA concept is, in my view, about as anti-Christian as one can get. The fact that any major church in America can really build an entire brand around MAGA (and they have) just shows the theological bankruptcy of much of American Christianity. Most Christians, it seems, regard no more than a few verses of the Bible,  those having to do with “gnashing of teeth” and Jesus being the only choice and those allegedly about sexual orientation and discard the rest, especially those places about justice and compassion and mercy and caring for the least, the lost, and the alien.

                  Jesus showed that abundant life comes through love of neighbor, through spreading a big tent over all humanity, and welcoming everyone in, especially those on the margins of society. Jesus stood against empire, showing its moral bankruptcy through his use of the power of love for its own sake.

                  Christianity isn’t about nationalism and America First. Christianity doesn’t take sides, and certainly doesn’t identify with America. Christianity is about universal love, and radical hospitality, and weakness conquering all. 

                  Christianity is about always critiquing and standing against those wielding power, even when they are “our guy” or are on our team. 

                  Making America great again isn’t what is needed. What is needed is “Making the Kingdom come on earth, as in heaven.” And that only comes from each and every one of us operating with an attitude of abundance towards each and every other human being, from putting the needs and well being of others first and above our own. 

                  Do I love america,? I think America is a construct. I love people and humanity more.
                  Practicing the radical and overflowing love of God towards others, is the  only way things be "great."

                  As always, I appreciate your views.

      While it's true that some Americans may not express outright love for their country, many appreciate the opportunities America provides. It's challenging to imagine a majority supporting a leader who seems to have brought considerable turmoil into their lives, especially given the economic concerns that have arisen under Biden's administration. The impact of Biden's policies on numerous Americans, particularly on the economy, cannot be ignored.

      Looking ahead to 2024, I hold a positive outlook. Similar sentiments arose when Trump entered the political scene – a response to a desire for a departure from Obama's ideologies. It appears that, once again, the majority is growing weary of the ideological rhetoric embraced by the left under Biden's leadership.

      Week by week, my confidence strengthens that Americans will choose an agenda focused on the well-being of America and its people in the upcoming elections. The collective sentiment seems to be shifting away from the rhetoric of the left, and there's a growing inclination to prioritize an agenda that truly benefits the nation and its citizens.

      I acknowledge the existence of a concerning element in our society, but it's essential to remember that this is not a novel phenomenon. I believe that the majority of Americans will lean towards voting for an individual whom they trust to actively address and rectify the damage that has transpired in recent years.

      The problems we have with how the two factions view Israel are a mirror to the problems we see within our society.

      The most Leftist of the Left is actually Anarchism, Conservatives are called Conservatives because their goal is to protect the institutions that hold up the society and culture that we know... some might call it Meritocracy, some might call it Patriarchy, the Judeo-Christian institutions, etc.

      The opposite of conserving these institutions, as well as facts, truth, reality, is the destruction of all these things.  Which we are neck deep in today... 72 different sexes... Transmen....child sex changes... we have travelled so deeply into the Left's vision that no one knows what reality is anymore.

      Hamas are oppressed, Hamas are victims, therefore anything that Hamas does is justified, this trumps being Jewish, being a religious minority and persecuted throughout history.  Makes total sense in the insane Identity Politics that dominates America and the West today.

      We have been totally screwed by the Biden Administration... people have no idea, none, how damaging this Administration has been, they have effected the demise of America... you don't see it or feel it yet, but they have thoroughly doomed us.

      Biden's earnest desire to war on Russia is the critical component of our imminent economic collapse. The Treasury’s bright idea of seizing Russia’s reserves, which (a) pushed 85% of the world that didn’t sanction Russia into fast-track de-dollarization and (b) revealed how fundamentally untrustworthy the US financial system is for any country that isn’t a DC pawn.

      Not a particularly good outcome for a massively indebted country that needs foreigners to keep buying its bonds!

      While the sanctions did cause damage for everyone involved, they weren’t enough to defeat the Russians. And now the establishment has signaled it’s giving up on Ukraine.

      But its too late, the UAE has abandoned trading oil in the dollar.  Saudi Arabia is a step behind, and there is no need to tell you where Russia or China stands... the Biden Administration has alienated the richest most powerful economies outside of the EU against America.

      Thank you Biden, we all look forward to standing in Breadlines and fighting for our next meal... the Depression of the 1930s will look like a good time to what Biden is condemning America to.

      I’m not saying that Biden or even anyone in Treasury fully understands this. Biden is barely even coherent at times. The establishment is facing complete financial meltdown. As such it wants to gain control over as much of the world’s finances as possible to pay its unpayable debts.

      The problem is, the world is revolting, refusing, and outright defeating this Administration's efforts, across the board.  The Biden Administration is not only evil... it is incompetent.  And we are all going to pay the price for it, regardless of what Party or what Cult you belong to.

      Essentially this is where we are at, regardless of whether we want it.

      I predicted this in January 2020, but for all the wrong reasons.

      But in addition, we have had the Biden Administration's efforts.  Transmen a protected minority.  Child sex change. Ukraine. Trillions going missing as Inflation skyrockets. Open Borders.

      You can hate Trump, his arrogance, the way he speaks... the alternative is subjugation, to the worst most corrupt and callous people who want to enslave humanity.  They want total control over everything you do, read, see, eat, how you live... if you live.

      Too few realize this... in a way, its like how too few realize what has happened to Disney.  Disney went full blown into Identity Politics.
      The entire staff was purged of those that didn't agree with, the Force is Female, Diversity Hires, Identity Politics, Social Justice.
      Disney won't recover because it can't.  It once championed family values, now it exists to destroy family values and traditional male female roles.

      Its not just the Democratic Party that is lost to this madness, though certainly they are the champions of it.  The Republican Party is a quiet Accomplice to it.

      Nikki Haley, or anyone else the RNC approves, is nothing more than an establishment shill that will essentially do the same as what the Biden Administration is doing now.

      In defense of the Constitution, National Sovereignty, Freedom, Liberty from Tyranny there is Trump.  That's where the nation is at, whether people realize it or not.

        Ken, I respect your view, you always do your diligence when it comes to research. However, I question your thoughts about the world agencies you have mentioned --- In my view,   In general, these organizations can influence policies through the ideas they promote, more so in the past than now.  They strive to set standards and recommendations. However, the degree of influence varies, and national governments, including that of the U.S., make independent decisions based on their own interests, values, and priorities.  The influence of these organizations is often a result of collaboration, consensus-building, and the willingness of member states to adopt common approaches to global challenges. 

        I hold the view that "we the people' are really like no other nation when it comes to our quest to keep living by our Constitution. Yes, it has been well-nicked up under Biden. However, this has not gone unnoticed.

        These World organizations hold little power over the US. As I said most have gleaned little to no respect from the American public. I believe that other Nations cling to these organizations to try to have a bigger voice, just due to the size of given nations. They naturally hope to have a louder voice by joining forces. Yes, my thoughts are a bit simplistic on the subject.

        America was formed as a great experiment, an experiment that led us to be the most powerful Nation in the world, the richest, and we enjoy freedoms. I do not believe that a majority would bend to any form of New World Order --- in fact, I think most would surprise and fight in the streets if need be. We still dictate with our privilege to vote in our government. 

        Perhaps we will face a fight in the end. I am betting the majority would not be submissive to a New World Order. We would most certainly witness a revolution.

          How do you feel about Trump floating the idea of getting rid of certain parts of the Constitution?

            ??  What parts has Trump floated getting rid of? 

            Is it the rule about being born in the US makes one an automatic citizen?  Is it the one that allows people to own guns?  You do realize that people have, for 200 hundred years, advocated changing this or that in our Constitution?

            What parts? I have not heard anything regarding Trump wanting to change the Constitution.   

            I assume you refer to his TS post --- "A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump said in a Truth Social post. "

            He was referring to the  Biden/Twitter scam to suppress the Hunter laptop story.    Trump’s post comes after the first of the “Twitter files” on “free speech suppression” were posted on Twitter.  Trump's posts focused on the controversy surrounding President Biden’s son Hunter Biden and Twitter’s reaction limiting the spread of posts about the laptop story. The media twisted this one up big time. Although if one follows the entire context of that quote it was very clear Trump was saying Biden/Twitter subverted the Constitution, by allowing for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. No more no less...

            He was simply stating that all the rules and protections of the Constitution were tossed out the window by Twitter and the Biden campaign, not to mention the FBI.  Trump is correct his rights in this case were violated.

            I have not witnessed Trump subverting our Constitution in any respect. He has claimed, and still does today that the 2020 election was fraudulent. This is his right under our First Amendment.

            First Amendment Fundamental Freedoms
            Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

            As he did on Jan, 6th. He took his grievance to the people.

              Trump was clearly talking about the results of the 2020 election.

              He even followed up with the following trying to walk it back

              'The Fake News is actually trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to ‘terminate’ the Constitution. This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES, just like RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, and all of their other HOAXES & SCAMS,” Trump wrote in another Truth Social post, saying he meant that “steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG.”

              In my view it seems pretty clear that he wanted to write the so-called wrongs of the 2020 election by eliminating parts of the Constitution that he feels allowed his (rightful) loss to take place.

              Between his increasingly fascist rhetoric and increasingly fascist second-term policy proposals, the debate should now be considered settled. A political leader who vows to destroy opponents he calls “vermin,” to weaponize the Justice Department against his critics, and to conduct political purges in the federal government is in fascist territory.

                He just states the obvious. You don't have to look or read between the lines with Trump, he tells it like it is.

                You have easily manipulated or indoctrinated voters that will buy this.

                And then there is everyone else that is going to remember back to 2019.

                How good the economy was, how nice it was not to be in a new war, how easy it was to go out and pay for dinner or take the kids to the movies.

                There was no round up of his political opponents, there was no WWIII, there was no Martial Law even when it seemed the country needed it in 2020... so... you have to be easily manipulated by the fearmongering going on at MSNBC and CNN and TikTok to believe the nonsense they are spouting.

                We saw what Trump was about for 4 years... through some of the most insane political witch hunts and falsehoods anyone in history ever had to contend with... and we have seen what Biden has brought America, during his Administration.

                Imagine how good a job Trump can do now that he knows the hornets' nest he is walking into... I'm sure there was a steep learning curve to being President his first go about... given a second go, he would do an even better job.

                Musk dropped the story about the Hunter laptop story being canned on Twitter on Dec 3, Trump made his comment on Truth Social on Dec 4 a Saturday... I read it, and his content was very clear. He was complaining about Twitter and took steps to can tweets that were discussing Hunter's famous laptop.  Musk eventually dumped the email of a handful of the Twitter twerps that made the decision and canned them. By Monday the media twisted the entire content of Trump's post. As they do often.

                I followed this incident closely. Believe what you please, you are not alone.

                Not sure what you are referring to in regard to his latest campaign promises ---  I have watched several of his rallies, and his agenda is in my view much the same as in 2016 --- trying to solve problems that plague America.

                Here is the quote you have eluded to ---  "We will put America first and today, especially in honor of our great veterans on Veterans Day, we pledge to you that we will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country." Donald Trump

                Do you see the words  "destroy opponents"? I see the words root out... I see nothing that indicates Trump will destroy anyone...   

                I have never seen the quote where Trump said --  "to weaponize the Justice Department against his critics, and to conduct political purges in the federal government is in fascist territory."

                He did say --- "Well, he's unleashed something that everybody, we've all known about this for a hundred years," Trump said, apparently in reference to President Biden and his administration. "We've watched other countries do it and, in some cases, effective and in other cases, the country's overthrown or it's been totally ineffective. But we've watched this for a long time, and it's not unique, but it's unique for the United States. Yeah. If they do this and they've already done it, but if they want to follow through on this, yeah, it could certainly happen in reverse. It could certainly happen in reverse. What they've done is they've released the genie out of the box." Donald Trump

                I would guess he would clean the house, and yes, we would see many investigations. I don't think there is a chance he would not try to bring down anyone he felt stepped beyond the law, especially those in Government positions. I certainly expect this would occur. He is hell-bent on proving election interference. He is not going to bend, I would think most would have realized this by now.

                  Trump is very outspoken, he does not mince words, he does not skirt around any subject, nor does he need flashcards to share his opinion. Many Americans have come to prefer his outspoken demeanor. I prefer it to the half-asleep man who stumbles to read what someone else. prepared.
