Son of a gun. Trump was right.

I was reading a piece from The Hill and I had a sudden flashback. The headline was “Threats of political violence rise in polarized Trump era.” Everyone seems to be at each other’s throats and it was absolutely predictable. In fact, many of us did predict it. The Hill blames Trump’s “heated rhetoric” which they claim “has angered opponents while firing up his supporters, magnifying the sense that the political divide in the country is growing wider.”

Flash back with me to an America before Trump. He was talking about doing some things that would not only upset the establishment Republicans but make the left’s head explode. He wanted to solve the illegal immigration problem, totally reform the tax system, rip out Obamacare and replace it with something market-driven. He’s only been marginally successful on one front so far—tackling the problem of illegal immigration—and the left’s head is exploding. That, in a nutshell, is what’s going on.

The Antifa thugs are out in full force claiming to fight Nazis when in reality they’re bashing in the heads of anyone who disagrees with them. That would be anyone who voted for Trump. Like they did in Berkeley recently. Trump supporters held an anti-Marxist rally and the Antifa terrorists attacked them. Even the Washington Post said the protest was peaceful until the Antifa folks came with clubs. If you pay close attention you’ll notice that the Trump folks have remained rather calm. 

Antifa did the same in Charlottesville, but no media outlet showed you the violence. The media didn’t want to legitimize the Nazis and the Klan by making them look like the victims. The media are no longer about the who, what, when, where, why, and how. They can’t just report the news as it happens. They have to spin it. Journalists are no longer journalists. They’re activists.

Antifa presented themselves as heroic Nazi-bashers. The media finally saw them for what they are in Berkeley. Just plain bashers. Their bashing isn’t just reserved for Nazis. Gone is the pretense that they’re some noble protectors of the oppressed. The truth is they used the Nazis to try and legitimize their true Marxist agenda. They could not hold off being thugs even three weeks. Now everyone should be on to them. Unless people start buying this notion that Trump supporters are just Nazis too and should be physically beaten into submission.

Aside from the violence, it’s been quite entertaining to watch the left have a complete meltdown. It’s like a spoiled little brat that’s been told they can’t have anymore candy so they throw a temper tantrum. The left is throwing a collective, national temper tantrum, and somehow it’s the fault of the parent who cut off the candy.

Those who aren’t actively bashing Trump supporters in the head with clubs are calling Trump a genocidal Hitler. Black Lives Matter has come out with their list of demands, which includes all the honkies turning over their land to “black and brown people.” I can tell you right now, that ain’t happening. At least not without a fight. 

Gary Cohn, Trump’s National Economic Council Director, says Antifa is just “citizens standing up for equality and freedom.” He drafted his resignation after Trump’s remarks about hatred and bigotry on many sides. Trump should’ve accepted it.

After the beat down in Berkeley is there any doubt if Trump was right? I’m sure the apologies from the RINOs are forthcoming.

The screech from the left should not be a surprising noise. It’s the sound one makes when his ox is getting gored.

An Inconvenient Flop

Al Gore’s new movie, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, was an unqualified failure. It finished 21st last weekend and averaged a pathetic $644 per theater. It’s not just the hackneyed subtitle doomed it. It truly came at an inconvenient time. Gore has so exaggerated his global warming claims that it’s sent millions of people searching for the truth. ‘Exaggerated’ is being kind. Most of his claims are outright lies. Once people start scratching beneath the surface the truth is hard to hide.

I’ve always said that the belief in manmade global warming is wide but shallow. All one has to do is chronicle how much of Gore’s claims from his first movie have come true and it’s easy to see that the whole argument that we’re destroying the planet is simply false.

A new study published in The Spectator in Australia once again demonstrates that temperatures were warmer during the Medieval Warm Period than they are today. The MWP ran from about 950AD to 1250AD. The really inconvenient truth for Al is that it was actually warmer when he put out his first movie in 2007 than it is now. Oops. This is one of the many inconvenient truths we expose in our movie, An Inconsistent Truth.

The irony is that the week Gore’s movie was debuting and bombing at the box office our movie skyrocketed to #1 on Amazon’s documentary list. We were #30 for all movies and TV shows on Amazon. The really hilarious part is the liberals at Amazon also put us in the fantasy category as a slap in the face. We went to #1 in the fantasy category, too! All of a sudden the Game of Thrones crowd that would never have even heard of our movie saw it at the top of their category. Thanks, Amazon.

The inconvenient truth is nothing Al Gore claimed in his first movie has come true. He said we would see hurricanes more severe and more frequently than at any time before in history. Instead we began the longest hurricane drought in history. He said the polar bears were on the edge of extinction. When Gore did his movie the estimated polar bear population was 22,500. Today it’s  about 30,000. Temperatures over the last 20 years have remained steady despite CO2 levels rising. Where’s the correlation? And every single climate model has been wrong. They all predicted temperatures would go up with CO2 increases. They haven’t.

And don’t get me started on NASA, NOAA, and the UK Met fudging temperatures not only from today but from the 1940s to make it look like we’ve been warming.

The left-wing media love to point to polls showing the public is gravely concerned about climate change. Apparently not concerned enough to go see a movie by the grand guru of global warming. Only the most devoted Branch Algorians showed up at the theaters. Essentially three weeks into release and the film is dead.

In order for people to believe your theory you have to back it up with facts…eventually. Gore and his people have had 30 years or more to close the sale. A skeptical public still has its foot in the doorway. A theory with no proof is just a theory. In fact, it’s less than that. It’s a guess. And a bad one at that.

If the planet were heating up we’d be breaking records every year. The latest heatwave in America broke records dating back 100 years. A heatwave every 100 years is not a pattern. It’s certainly not something we dismantle our entire economy over.

Time to bone up on the Antifa movement

It's easy to see a movement that is anti-fascist and think they're good. After all, who in their right mind isn't against the fascist? But a deeper dig into the origins of the Antifa movement paints a dark and sinister picture.

Communist Antifa flag-1932
The Antifa movement has its roots in the German Communist Party of the 1930s. It was a movement against the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler. The communists and the Nazis have been fighting one another for over 100 years. That's a curious thing to a lot of people. Then mainstream media portray it as a fight been far right and far left but that's not accurate. Nazis are socialists. In fact, Nazi is short for the National Socialist German Workers Party. So why are factions that appear to be similar in philosophy at each other's throats?

That's the interesting point that so many people miss. Let me explain it. Both the Nazis and the communist want complete domination over you. They want to control what you say, what you read, even what you think. They are literally fighting over who is going to control the masses. When you look at it that way you understand why they're constantly at war. They are two of the few groups on the planet who want total control over people. Most of the rest of us just want to be left alone. They're both fighting over you and me, over control.

This is why the communists were fighting the Nazis in World War II. This is why the communists were fighting the Nazis in Greensboro in 1979. This is why the communists were fighting the Nazis in Charlottesville in 2017. And they've gotten quite clever, these communists. They no longer call themselves communists. They've reverted to their 1932 German roots as "anti-fascists." Again, who can be against the folks who are against the fascists? It's brilliant, actually. So much so that they've recruited a whole new slate of useful idiots from governors to senators to mayors. And the mainstream media are clearly in their camp. Some completely complicit. Some useful idiots. Some just plain idiots.

Antifa in 1932 and Antifa now
Take a look at their two symbols. The communist Antifa movement of 1932 Germany and the Antifa movement of today. They are the same thing. Why? Because they are the same people. Those of you who listen to my radio show probably heard the phone call from Corey, a self-described Antifa. He started off calm and collected, but as I exposed him for what he was he flew into a rage and ultimately threatened me.

The Antifa people are all about redistribution of wealth, they're anti-capitalists, they hate what America was founded on. They're bound and determined to destroy our country from within, and now they have people in government doing their bidding over fear of being labeled a Nazi if they don't.

The Nazis are too stupid to change their image. They're still out there with swastikas and Nazi salutes. They look like a bunch of clowns. The communists are far more sophisticated. They have the backing of George Soros and they come in many forms. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, the climate change movement. These are the people who scream about microaggressions and trigger words and safe spaces. You need to understand who these people are so you don't fall into their trap like so many people have.

Antifa is crafty, insidious, and extremely dangerous. Remember the snowflakes who fell apart after Trump won? These people are basically rabid snowflakes. They roam from town to town like a deranged mob on Soros' payroll to commit violent acts against Nazis and anybody else who stands in their way, all the while knowing the complicit media will cover them in a good light. I don't mind saying it again. They are far, far more dangerous than the neo-Nazis who have no clout, no power, and no sense.

Arm yourselves with knowledge and let's expose these people for who they really are.

The real goal of the Antifa movement

Let me just go ahead and tell you what nobody on the left and few people on the right are going to tell you. The Antifa movement is far more dangerous than the neo-Nazis. Liberal logic says if you're against Antifa you're for the Nazis. That is utter bovine scatology. That's like saying if you're against the Crips you're for the Bloods. I'm against all of them.

What happened in Charlottesville was a clash of the idiots. The problem is the neo-Nazis have been elevated to a position of power by the mainstream media far beyond what they deserve. The Nazis and the Klan and the white supremacists are repugnant, ignorant, racist morons. Nobody takes them seriously. That's exactly why the Antifa people are so dangerous. Almost the entire left and too many RINOs in the Republican Party are doing their bidding.

A day before Charlottesville there was virtually no one calling for Confederate statues to be toppled across the South. No one except the most radical on the looney left. Now everyone from the governor of North Carolina to U.S. senators to big city mayors is joining in the frenzy. Where were these people before Charlottesville? What they're doing is playing to the mob. And that's what makes Antifa so dangerous. They're getting their way.

Antifa thugs at work
But make no mistake, the Antifa movement is violent and far more fascist than the people they purportedly protest. They're part of the George Soros cabal that hates America and wants to rip it out by its foundations.

The Confederate statues are just the appetizer. The entree is the founding fathers. President Trump predicted that in his masterful press conference at Trump Tower. And, no, he did not defend the white supremacists. He condemned them, but he also condemned anyone and everyone who deals in hate and bigotry. Who could possibly disagree with that? The crazy leftists. They don't want anyone condemning hatred and bigotry on the left because they think they're due. The media ignored the thuggery of the Antifa movement in order to try and pin the so-called 'alt-right' on Donald Trump (see previous blog). They even lied and said Trump "spoke out in defense of the white supremacists groups." He never did anything remotely like that. He roundly denounced them.

But the big prize for the Antifa movement is the Constitution. It has always stood in their way of remaking America in their fascist image. Black Lives Matter, another Soros group, wants to criminalize the possession of Confederate memorabilia. It's laughable that the so-called anti-fascist are more fascist than the Nazis they protest.

Yes, and more dangerous.

The neo-Nazis we saw in Charlottesville were not Hitler and Goebbels and Göring. They were a rag-tag bunch of low-IQ losers. Again, nobody is taking these guys seriously. No one is enacting their agenda into law. No one is joining their mob to appease them. But that's exactly what's happening on the other side.

Too many spineless politicians are afraid to stand up to the Antifa movement for fear of being labeled a Nazi. If they can't stand up with President Trump and denounce hatred and bigotry on all sides they need to stand aside.

Media use Charlottesville to get Trump

President Donald Trump was widely criticized for condemning the hatred and bigotry in Charlottesville “on many sides.” Turns out he was right.

Before we get into the details, let me say without hesitation that I find the KKK, Nazis, and white supremacists repugnant. What one of them did by driving his car into a crowd of protestors is beyond horrible and he should be punished severely for it.

But that sentiment really goes without saying. Criticizing the president for not calling out the Nazis and Klan by name simply misses the point of the bigger problem that Trump did point out. What happened in Charlottesville was the clash of the idiots. I told my radio audience it was the Antifa (An-TEE-fuh) against the Noteefa. A bunch of redneck klansmen decided to march in Charlottesville. Why they marched has been widely overlooked.

There’s a movement that has gained steam over the last few years to whitewash history by removing any and all monuments to the Confederacy. That’s a mistake. No matter which side you’re on, it's a dangerous thing to erase history. Think what you will about the Civil War or the War Between the States or whatever you prefer to call it, there’s one thing that’s immutable. It happened. It’s also instructive to remember that it happened. Removing statues and monuments is not remembering. It’s trying to forget.

And where does this stop. Are we now going to tear down the Jefferson Memorial because he owned slaves? Are we going to raze Andrew Jackson’s home, the Hermitage, because he owned slaves and slaughtered Indians?

I’ve got a neat little policy that has served me well all my years. If there’s something that I don’t like, I stay away from it. I don’t try to tear it down. If that’s where we’re heading then we have a lot of work ahead of us.

There’s a bust of Margaret Sanger at the National Portrait Gallery. Sanger was an advocate of eugenics. In 1921 she wrote, “the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” Some say that was code for blacks. Even if it wasn’t, her call for limiting procreation based on her subjective definition of worthy mental or physical capacity is disturbing. The Nazis later used eugenics with chilling precision. Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood, not something I would be particularly proud of. As an advocate of genetic cleansing is her bust worthy of display at the National Portrait Gallery? I’ll choose not to visit it the next time I’m in Washington.

And does Martin Luther King’s serial infidelity and flirtation with communism overshadow his work as a civil rights leader? I don’t think so, but under the logic of the radical left he would be disqualified for memorialization. That is if the left actually found adultery and communism objectionable.

If one goes back and reviews the video from Charlottesville one will learn that the Antifa attacked the Nazis and Klansmen as they were marching down the street. Doesn’t excuse the running over of a protestor, but it does add credence to Trump’s call for the end of hatred and bigotry “on many sides.”

And let’s not elevate these Nazis to the intellectual level of the Third Reich. Most of these folks have the IQ of a soap dish. They couldn’t take over their own trailer park. 

The media like to talk about “bringing the temperature down.” Rather ironic when they’re taking a blow torch to the situation in order to score points against Donald Trump.

The continued media coverup of DWS

The Debbie Wasserman Schultz/Imran Awan scandal continues to be all but ignored by the mainstream media. Since last we visited, Imran Awan, the ringleader of a trio of brothers running IT for congressional Democrats, was arrested at Dulles airport trying to skip town. He was arrested on bank fraud charges.

I believe those charges are important in understanding the entire scandal. Awan was charged with allegedly lying to loan officers of the Congressional Federal Credit Union. He got a home equity loan on a property he owned. The problem was he was renting the property at the time which is against the rules. Enough for federal agents to swoop down on someone? Probably not.

Awan and his brothers have been under investigation by the Capitol Police since February for allegedly stealing equipment from congressional offices and data from congressional computer servers. Depending on who you talked to, they performed IT services for anywhere from 24 to 31 Democrats. Once the investigation commenced, most of the Democrats dropped their services. Debbie Wasserman Schultz inexplicably reclassified Awan’s job description after he was banned from access to congressional servers and kept him on the payroll until his arrest at Dulles.

We also know that Awan wired the money he obtained in the home equity loan back to his home country of Pakistan. The exact amount he has wired to Pakistan over the years is impossible to determine at this point. Needless to say, it’s in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Judge Andrew Napolitano at Fox News Channel says his sources are telling him that Imran Awan not only had access to dozens of Democrats’ e-mails but every single congressman. Not only that, but Napolitano claims Awan was selling the information he obtained. We don’t yet know to whom or for what purpose. 

So, here’s a guy with access to who knows what information from congressional sources. He’s being investigated for not only stealing it but selling it. We also know that he had Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s username and password for her Democratic National Committee account. Yes, the very one that’s suspected of being hacked by the Russians. There have also been independent analyses of the information stolen from the DNC and it’s been determined that the information was downloaded at a speed that makes it unlikely that it was obtained remotely. In other words, the stolen information from the DNC that was allegedly hacked was not hacked at all. It was downloaded internally.

Now who had the access? Who apparently has a pattern of behavior of stealing data? Who’s been wiring large sums of money to Pakistan? The only question that remains unanswered is where the hell is Mueller? This is obviously a stronger lead than any Russian hacking, yet not only does the special counsel ignore this story but so do the mainstream media. Since Awan’s arrest there’s been hardly any attention given by the MSM. When they do it’s under the cloud of this being some right wing conspiracy theory.

Look, we’ve been covering this story since February. It’s been my personal belief all along that this is the biggest scandal of the decade. Debbie Wasserman Schultz berated the Capitol Hill Police chief for not returning a laptop that Awan allegedly hid in an alcove in one of the House office buildings. The Capitol Police found it during their investigation of Awan. Congressman Schultz’s desperate attempt to get it back raises serious questions about her involvement.

It’s doubtful that she’s that naive. The big question is does the investigation end with Schultz, or is that just the beginning?
