[GUEST POST] America Saved My Family After We Fled Iran. We Must Protect Our Freedom

A Child Living in Fear

How does the child of an immigrant family from Iran feel about this country?

Well here is the story of my family … you decide.

As Armenians, we are all too aware of History and oppression and prejudices. 

Our ancestors were massacred by the Ottomans, and yet to this day, it is denied and not recognized. 

Did we all make a “Promise” to never forget? Yes, we did.  However, the world refuses to remember our losses, our tears.

Now, fast forward to the Bolshevik revolution.  Many Armenians fled into what was at that time Russia. 

They worked hard, had families, acquired homes only to have it all taken away.  How does this happen you ask? 

Imagine you are a young child when your home is suddenly invaded by a number of people with covered faces and weapons. 

Now imagine they storm your house, go upstairs.  You hear screaming, you run to the stairs to see your mother being thrown down by one of those men.

As you are crying and trying to help your mother, those men come down the stairs and declare that everything in the home now belongs to the people.  As a child, you don’t understand, and you scream at them only to be told that you are not sharing your wealth and that you and your family must now give it all up. 

So, you must now start all over. 

You must grow up working at a young age, get married, and work long hours into the night sewing. You are doing what you must to feed your young son and while you dream of leaving. 

Your husband now has left and somehow you manage to save up enough money to take your child and smuggle him out of the country. 

Where to? IRAN.

Life in Iran

This son, my father, now is grown. While he is enlisted in the Shahs military, he meets his future wife. 

Soon, they get married and have a little girl. 

Tensions in Iran, even in the ’50s was high.  The Shah was westernizing the county too fast.  At this time, my grandmother worked at the American embassy and could see the turmoil happening.  The danger escalating.

Two years after I was born, my mother becomes pregnant again.

“I will not have another child born in this country,” she says. 

Desperate and scared, my family flees with nothing but the clothes on their back.

My father, with a 2-year-old child, a pregnant wife, a grandmother from Russia half blind needing surgery and the mother’s sister; they secure passage to a land that they had only dreamed of. This land gave hope of starting fresh where they could finally be FREE.

The Land of the Free

I am now 2 years old, playing on the bridge of this ship when I suddenly see that everyone is screaming, cheering and crying.

I run to my mother and father. 

“Why is everyone so sad,” I asked. 

My father looked at me, picked me up and pointed to this grand statue in the water.  He pointed to it and said, “We are not sad my angel, we are happy.” 

“Why?” I asked. 

“Because we are now truly free, and no one can ever hurt us again.”

Honestly, as a child, I did not understand. 

I did not understand why we had to live with our relatives, why my father was going to school every night and work all day. 

Why did my grandmother, who was old, had to go to night school to learn English? 

I did not understand until 6 years later when my parents came back from a trip they took that day with big smiles on their faces and said,

“WE ARE NOW CITIZENS OF THE USA!”

America The Beautiful

I remember when my great aunt and aunt were here on a visit from Iran in 1974 when they got a call from their neighbor. 

“You have to come back home, or they will take it all”. 

We begged them not to go, my father said he will help them to become citizens, but as Armenians, they should not go back. 
However, they did and what did they go “home” to?

They took their home, they fired them from their jobs, they closed the Armenian schools, they destroyed our churches.

We never saw them again.

On another visit, my father’s cousins came to visit from the USSR. 

I remember taking them to a grocery store, you know, something we do every week and don’t even think about. 

My father and I were halfway down the first aisle when we realized they were not with us. As we went back to the door, I saw them standing there in tears. 

“You can just walk in and get whatever you want?” they asked. 

It was then that I realized what a shock this must have been to them. 

“The shelves are all full, nothing is rationed… is this the way it is all over this country?” 

My father now had tears in his eyes as he put his arm around them and said: “This is what capitalism is, this is how we live and it’s not just food. It is anything you want as long as you can afford it.” 

I did not expect their next words:

“They have lied to us our entire lives!  How can we go back now knowing what we do?” 

They did not go back. My father helped them to become citizens.

There Are Many Like Me

I am not the only one with a story like this one. 

Many have similar stories.

Many have suffered through history. 

And many like us have learned from our own history.  I was a“dreamer” and so were my parents. 

They ensured that I would be able to follow my dreams by coming to a country that some only dream of and others have been blinded to believe is evil.

Do we have problems in this country? Yes. 

Have I agreed with all its policies? No.  There is one thing I will always be grateful for; that my parents made the decision to come to a land like no other on this earth!

How does THIS immigrant child feel about this land?

It is my home, it is my life, and I will die to ensure that it never becomes the land that my ancestors, my parents and I fled.

GOD TRULY BLESSED THE USA.

This week’s guest post was submitted by a Closet on the Right community member.  Her wish is to remain anonymous while helping everyone understand the dangers of history and tyrannical governments.  Her hope is that we use her story as a cautionary tale to protect America at all costs, or fall victim to the oppression that has appeared time and again throughout history.

A Closer look at the Arizona Election

Arizona Midterm Election, A Closer Look [GUEST POST]

On The Hunt for Facts

Since the recent election, I was concerned about the outcome.

The Republican candidate in Arizona for Senator won on election night.  However, the Democrat candidate was declared the winner almost a week later.

With other elections such as Florida and other states having allegations of voter fraud, I took it upon myself to at least in a small way look at the results myself.

I started with getting the election results from previous elections, dating back to 2010 for comparison, going granular not only by county but by precinct in each county.

Then I made a spreadsheet.

Well, because I like to do spreadsheets and yes I am that guy. I did find some rather interesting results.

The Counties

First, let’s start with the simple number of registered voters versus actual votes counted.

Obviously, A should never be larger than B, such as Precinct 1 would have 500 registered but only 300 voted including early ballots, provisional, etc. Here’s what I found.

AZ Voter Registration Sheet

Apparently, the accounting is not correct, especially if these are supposed to be the official results.

I also added the 203 column, which referred to Prop 203 in 2010 which legalized medical marijuana in Arizona.

Again, it had the same pattern.

Polls said Arizonians didn’t want it. Election night the vote said outright that they didn’t want it.

But hey what’s this, a box? Oh, interesting there’s all these uncounted ballots, and well looky-here it just happens that there are enough votes that it did pass by 4,341.

As I mentioned, these are from the official results from the Arizona Secretary of State.

This alone shows that there is not a proper accounting in the least of whether the registered versus voters are legitimate. Here’s the breakdown by precinct.

The Precincts

AZ Precinct Breakdown

First, I am not showing the actual vote tallies merely because I do not know if they’ve been officially released to the public. First, since the vote tallies are yet to be released publicly, we won’t be stating those here. I just called up each county to ask and they either directed me to the location or they emailed it to me directly.

So until I see that’s it’s been put onto the website as released I’m going to treat it as embargoed, just in case.

The Breakdown

What I have here are all 26 precincts that have more votes than registered. Column F shows the number of votes over and above what was registered.

Columns H and I, well ok I guess I’ll show the votes here, no one tells anyone ok?

Column J is the percentage of votes to registered, essentially the turnout.

At the top is 67%, that’s the average throughout the state.

As you can see going down the column these areas had an overabundance of turnout.

And of course, the R and D is who won or a tie if the vote was the same for both.

Therefore, column O is the amount of percentage over and above the state average.

Yeah, granted, some areas had lower turnout over here and higher turnout over there. Taking these out for this point, there are areas that had 0% or really low turnout, and areas as high as 97%.

However, Doney Park at 1824%?

Oh, Yuma, it had zero registered voters and 19 actual voters, I have no idea how to calculate that one.

So columns P & Q (sorry for S & T, ended up duplicating) are then weighted to that 67% average of what that vote might have looked like. This would mean that McSally would’ve had 3,408 votes less and Sinema 5,712.

The next sheet I’ll admit is purely speculative, and you could shoot a thousand holes into it.

Previous Trends

Historical Voting Trends.

What I did here was in each election going back to 2010 I looked at all the races to look at one specific criterion.

On off-years such as this one, I looked at the Governor candidates, 2016 and 2012 were Presidential candidates.

For each precinct I wanted to gauge whether it leaned Republican or Democrat, going by say for 2018 Precinct 1 carried the Republican, and so on.

In total, I had five elections to base that on, so if a precinct went four or five for a given candidate I would say it would lean that way, less than that I disregarded it.

I then asked some simple questions. How can this precinct that was historically Republican-leaning could vote for Sinema?

That to me had a big disconnect.

True, maybe McSally didn’t campaign there. Maybe she said she was anti-Trump and the voters didn’t like that? Again, many variables.

But that’s a large number, as I show here that’s 11.4% of the precincts that for all five elections were leaning Republican decided to switch?

The next column is worse, looking solely at the 2018 election, those precincts that carried Ducey 237 decided to vote against McSally? Or more precisely voted for the Socialist candidate that in several videos referred to Arizona as the Meth lab of the United States, as well as the sixth C for crazy.

Yeah, I’m sure Arizona wanted that.

The next two columns I did the same questions for Prop 203, received even more stark numbers.

Now granted, demographics shift. Precincts get redrawn, some are added to this election and others dissolved. And as I mentioned maybe McSally had her own issues with getting the message out. It’s just that to me this seems very odd, someone is going to explain it to me.

So let me be clear. If Sinema won fair-and-square then so be it. The manner in which this was done leaves me with huge suspicions, and the released data doesn’t help that. In the very least it shows that the tallying has problems, either in the number of registration or in the vote counting.

Granted, mistakes happen. However, did anyone pick up on the last columns I had, where it said R and D?

The number of precincts that I note had 6 where McSally won and 20 that Sinema won. If you take out Yuma since I don’t know, zero registered voters, that gives 5 Republican questionable to Democrat’s 20.

Very interesting to me.

Right now I have serious doubts as to the legitimacy of Sinema’s election. Until those concerns are addressed, quite frankly, I do not recognize her as my Senator. There is too much potential fraud going on here, I don’t know what to make of it.

Lastly, I do concede that it may be that the Republicans need to turn out the vote better next time. I made this sheet to show the weak points versus the strong and who won in each. Heck, the Democrats could even use this, I don’t mind if they use it, I don’t mind a fair fight.

Left's Long March

The Left’s Long March Resumes [Guest Post]

Weaponizing government entities returns, with a vengeance

Antonio Gramsci believed that the path to the seizure of state power was not through violent revolution, like the Communist Revolution of a century ago, but through “becoming State.” Marxist revolutionaries would become the state by taking over the institutions of the state.
This plan/concept would become more familiar by Rudi Dutchke’s phrase for it, “the long march through the institutions.”

In today’s Twitterverse, the long march has been captured accurately by Iowahawk:


Midterms over, members of a newly-empowered Democrat House majority have made no secret of resuming their attack on our Republic from the institutions that comprise it.

Congressman Adam Schiff, soon to replace Congressman Devin Nunes as head the House Intelligence Committee, is wasting no time signaling his intention to use his committee to attack the Trump presidency and cripple its ability to conduct foreign policy.

He intends to use his position not only to end ongoing investigations into Democrats’ misconduct but to pivot and attack, using the subpoena powers of his committee within the institution of the House of Representatives as his castle from which to demand respect.

What can’t be co-opted (in this case, the executive branch), they will destroy.

The Plan

Adam Schiff

His plan is about twisting the emoluments clause into an unrecognizable form.
With the help of the “mainstream” media, Democrats intentionally confuse the American people to undermine a President because they lost the election.
Indeed, Democrats publicly plan to display their “resistance” files by weaponizing the House on this issue; and multiple others across other committees in a non-stop assault on this President to destroy the executive branch’s ability to govern.

Contrast this to the out-of-bounds efforts to expand his predecessor’s executive power, even extraconstitutionally on multiple occasions, and one gets the new Democrat modus operandi: co-opt or destroy.
They will mangle them emoluments clause into nothingness; just like they desire to do with the electoral college, redistricting, state power, the US Constitution, etc.


The Middle Eastern Re-alignment

Iran Nuclear Deal

President Trump has done a lot in the Middle East to help realign its power structures away from radical Islamists and toward moderates, reversing Obama’s policies of tipping the scales towards the radicals.

  • Through ending the Iran “nuclear deal.”
  • Standing up to Iranian saber-rattling
  • Calling them out in front of the world at the UN
  • Supporting our historical allies
  • Snubbing our adversaries once again
  • Recognizing the capital of Israel
  • Moving the US Embassy there, etc.,

Thus, the President has made it clear US leadership is back and leading from the front.

Libya: A Warning to Islamic Dictators


The sad reality of international relations in the Middle East is that there are no good guys, just less bad ones.

Democrats have put their marker down in defense of the Muslim Brotherhood and in the overturning of friendly regimes.

Credit: IMREDIFFMAIL



Libya is an excellent example of a multi-decade diplomatic success story turned lesson for pro-western, Middle-Eastern dictators.

Libya had disarmed and ended its nuclear program and turned in all its nuclear materials. The payback: A bombing of Libya that ultimately resulted in the ouster and murder of its leader, Gaddafi.

Libya and Gaddafi could not be used for Democrat purposes, so he was destroyed. Consequently, leaving behind a weak central government and an environment for terror and chaos to thrive.
The lesson for the region’s dictators: Comply with the west and die.

Later, Libya was used to run weapons through to Syria at Benghazi, enabling the rise of ISIS, but we won’t talk about that…

Tilted Public Perception


Notice that its perfectly fine for his predecessor, President Obama, to order the killings of civilians, and oversee the removal of heads-of-state.
He also overlooked the political murders of hundreds of thousands across the Middle East.
His administration halt investigations into/prosecution of Hezbollah (a terrorist organization) operatives running cocaine and heroin through the United States.
Next, he used the proceeds to purchase weaponry (tacitly funding a terrorist organization by knowingly not halting it, undermining the DEA) because doing so threatened the Iran capitulation, er…nuclear “deal”, pursuing an unconstitutional treaty with that terror state, etc…

That’s all above board.

We won’t even get into the targeting of American citizens via the IRS, via FISA court abuses.
Or the weaponization of our intelligence agencies, and gaslighting an entire nation using non-existent Russian collusion to influence the 2016 election.
We now know this is a cover for Democrats’ collusion with Russians to do the same via a “dossier” of “salacious, unverified” information paid for by the DNC and the Hillary campaign.

Credit: level9news.com

Nor will we delve into the Clinton Foundation’s complete sellout of American technological secrets.

According to the FBI via the Skolkovo project, the Clinton Foundation received large donations immediately after the selling of American uranium to Russian.
Meanwhile, Hillary was Secretary of State and influencing American corporations to participate; or the use of a private e-mail server to conduct classified business.  Seventeen of the twenty-one businesses who participated also left massive contributions to the CF.

Nah. No influence peddling there.

No serial violations of the (re-interpreted on the fly) Espionage Act.

That too is above board. Democrats did it; it has to be!


Cooperate or Destroy


Instead, Democrats will attempt to destroy an emerging alliance between a moderating Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Israel against hardline Iran, Turkey, Syria; using the guise of Saudi officials staying at Trump-branded properties when conducting official business.
Nevermind that the President had passed off control of his business holdings to others.
They will even try to leverage a potential political assassination by another nation to do so.
President Trump must not be allowed to shape foreign policy; his business activities must be criminalized to prevent it.

You see, only Democrats are allowed to wield power.
Democrats use their offices to enrich themselves from American technological secrets and national security assets.
They overlook a terror network destroying the lives of Americans, so as not to threaten a nuclear capitulation to a terror state at war with the United States. 

Nothing will be allowed to get in the way of the Democrat totalitarian gang including:
  • The American people in selecting Trump as their president (we’re enemies of the republic for doing so).
  • A qualified nominee for the Supreme Court
  • Governors lawfully redistricting after years of census results.
  • A growing economy where taxpayers keep the fruits of their labor.
  • Election deadlines or voter eligibility.
  • Laws allowing states to clean their voter rolls.
  • The election system itself (in favor of a national popular vote to destroy our republic for a direct democracy).
  • The Bill of Rights, the separation of powers doctrine, nor the rest of the Constitution.

Congressman Schiff’s promised “investigation” is but a small part of this larger effort.  The executive branch (thus the American people’s choice to run it) could not be co-opted; so it must be destroyed, using other governmental institutions. Take notice as the media promotes and cheerleads all of it, under cover of “press freedom”.

Conservative Blacks

The Difference Between Conservative Blacks and Liberal Blacks

The Difference Between Conservative Blacks and Liberal Blacks

I was raised in a Democrat household during the turbulent 60s and 70s. As a youngster, I knew nothing of political parties. However, my parents managed to instill conservative principles within me that, as I grew older, eventually caused me to rethink my affiliation with the Democrat Party.

The more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that I had nothing in common with the Democrat Party, and I eventually left! However, for the next three (3) decades, I had no political home. I absolutely could not return to the Democrat Party, every minor political party that I investigated left much to be desired, and the Republican Party was composed of a bunch of old, white racists…weren’t they?

At least…that’s what I had been led to believe!

With that as a backdrop, I want to relate something that I have come to know about one of the important differences between liberal blacks and conservative blacks.

Racism In My Youth

My first recollection of racism occurred when I was about 9 years old and living in Philadelphia, PA.  Amazingly, I didn’t even recognize it at the time.

 

My older brother, a couple of friends, and I were returning home from a day at the park (walking) and decided to stop for ice-cream at a drug store (in those days, virtually all drug stores had a soda and ice-cream fountain). We walked in and took seats at the counter and waited to be served. There were only a few patrons, and the woman behind the counter did not look busy, at all. Despite that, we waited several minutes, and no one seemed eager to help us. My older brother finally asked for service, and I will never forget the response from the clerk: “We don’t serve your kind here.”

In my ignorance, I thought she meant that they didn’t serve KIDS there! However, when we told our parents about it, we were warned to never return to that store. We were told that the reason the clerk said what she said was that we were black. My takeaway from that was that white people did not like black people.

The True Source of the Racism

Over the next several years, I came to experience additional incidents of racism from time to time. However, occasionally, I would meet some whites who appeared to be different and accepted me as an equal. Although I wondered what the difference was, I didn’t really dwell on it.

Years later, when I had begun to pay more attention to politics, I learned that many of those who exhibited racist tendencies toward me were Democrats. I could only be certain of those who made it known who they supported in elections, so I cannot honestly state that all were Democrats, but I now began to take mental notes.

I also noticed that many blacks spoke disparagingly about all whites. Not exactly sure what to make of this phenomenon, but I knew that what was being talked about was not universally true. By this time, I was aware that virtually all blacks that I knew voted almost 100% for Democrats.

I Snuck Off the Democratic Plantation

This was about the time that Jimmy Carter was POTUS. In his race against Reagan, I had voted for Reagan but kept it a closely-guarded secret. I didn’t exactly know why, but I surmised that it was probably in my best interest to do so since Reagan belonged to that racist, dastardly Republican Party. Even so, I sensed that he, himself, was a decent, honorable man.

I was very confused about all of this and decided that the best cure for confusion was knowledge. Thus, I began a thorough search for the truth. Slowly (no internet in those days), I unearthed one nugget of truth after another and was dumbfounded at what I discovered.

Imagine my surprise to learn that it was not ALL WHITES who condoned and perpetuated the vile and horrific condition of slavery on blacks in America…it was white DEMOCRATS!

The KKK, lynchings, intimidation, Jim Crow, Black Codes, and other such evils were not “racist” Republican constructs…they were tools of the Democratic Party designed to keep the newly-freed black slaves from voting for Republican candidates.

However, the more I learned, the more difficult it became to accept the truth. If all this was true, why did blacks vote for Democrats at all? It took a while, but I eventually learned about how the Democratic Party duped blacks into trading the old plantations of slavery for a new plantation of slavery by using handouts to accomplish their goal. It was immensely successful and persists to this day.

The Tea Party

But then, something remarkable happened. A gentleman by the name of Rick Santelli became fed up with out-of-control government spending and went on a rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in February 2009. He became the catalyst for the American Tea Party phenomenon that swept the nation almost immediately thereafter. I agreed with everything he had said and later joined the newly-formed First Coast Tea Party of Jacksonville Florida.

Conservative Blacks

In the Tea Party, I met and/or came to know thousands of like-minded individuals, who like me, realized that our nation was in trouble. Over the next several years, I was a very active Tea Party member who participated in rallies, fundraisers, education of the membership, and more. I even became a regular speaker at local Tea Party gatherings…invited by Billie Tucker (founder) and other Tea Party organizers.

 

Then came one of the biggest shocks of my entire life:

MOST OF THESE TEA PARTY PEOPLE…WERE REPUBLICANS!

White Republicans, Black Republicans, Hispanic/Latino Republicans, (legal) Immigrant Republicans, Men, Women…you name it! All Republicans…with a smattering of Independents, and even a few Democrats.

Talk about CONFUSION on an almost cosmic scale!

Cognitive Dissonance

But as I came to know these people, I discovered something else. The Black Republicans that I met seemed different from Black Democrats. Most of the Black Democrats almost always spoke negatively about all Whites, irrespective of party affiliation and seemed to be exceedingly concerned about racism and complained incessantly about being the target of racism. None of the Black Republicans did so. I found this to be stunning! What was the important difference that I alluded to earlier? It took a while, but I believe I have finally discovered the reason.

  • Black Democrats shun Republicans and interact mostly with other Democrats.
  • Since the Democrat Party is the party of racism and slavery, it stands to reason that much of the racism experienced by Black Democrats comes from Whites in their own party.
  • Black Republicans interact mostly with other Republicans of all colors.
  • Since the Republican Party is the party of freedom…well…you do the math!

 

Here is the bottom line: Black liberals are the ones complaining about racism and being called the N-word. Blacks who are conservatives RARELY initiate complaints or concerns about it.

The reason I am so confident that this is true is that in the last 11 years (since joining the Republican Party), I have not experienced any racism from another Republican at all!

I challenge any Black Democrat to make the same claim!

This Is The Swamp: Deep State Corruption

This IS THE SWAMP

 

“The players” are real and very familiar…if true how can this be stopped?? If not true, where are the “lies” or miss information or “fake news” facts to refute?

This was shared with me and I felt it worth sharing with my conservative as well as liberal friends who still value honesty and hate corruption. Be sure to read through this slowly and you will be as disgusted as I am. You will also begin to understand why certain characters involved are desperately trying to divert attention from facts laid out below. Pass it along if you are seriously interested in draining the swamp.

Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason.

Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important……

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
A Grand Jury had been empaneled.
Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared in tax filings.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you can’t guess.

None other than James Comey.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

during this time frame?

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, let’s chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009……

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department

(On her own personal email server by the way.)

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow gets paid 500K for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

Ok, no big deal right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

Yep, Robert Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?

No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

Guess what happened to the informant?

The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

No other than, Lois Lerner.

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

Sparing you the State Departments cover-up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

Now, this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

James Comey: FBI DIRECTOR

Guess who secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?

No other than James Comey.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

Nope…. couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?

In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James, steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clinton’s.

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

And,
See the person that is the common denominator for all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.

Who is Lisa Barsoomian?

Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

Lawrence also represented:

Robert Mueller three times;

James Comey five times;

Barack Obama 45 times;

Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

Bill Clinton 40 times; and

Hillary Clinton 17 times.

Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the

work history of this Barsoomian woman?

Apparently, someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.

Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.

Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing the Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community.

And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.

It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14-month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending “investigation” into collusion between the Trump team and
the Russians.

Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

BECAUSE….

She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

Social Media Censorship

Social Media Censorship

 

In recent months, social media censorship and shadow banning on social media have been hot topics in the conservative/Republican circles.

I know there is a lot of banning going on and of course, the ones I see getting banned are conservative but that is because most of my friend’s list is conservative. As a result of these bans, many have started saying the government needs to get involved.

Personally, I don’t think people are thinking this through. Government involvement in anything almost always makes it worse in the long run. Censorship is wrong no matter what but government involvement is even worse.

What Is Shadow Banning

First, I think we need to know what shadow banning is because many have heard the term but really don’t know what it means.

Wikipedia explains it this way:

“Shadow banning (also called stealth banning, ghost banning or comment ghosting) is the act of blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. By making a user’s contributions invisible or less prominent to other members of the service, the hope may be that in the absence of reactions to their comments, the problematic or otherwise out-of-favor user will become bored or frustrated and leave the site.”

 

The very first thing we need to realize is all social media platforms have been doing this from the beginning because if they did not prioritize the more popular feeds then all of our timelines would be overrun with what people ate for supper and their trips to Wal-Mart.

Personally, I have over 500 people in my friend’s list and I can assure you that I do not want to go through 500 different things each time I get on Facebook and that is assuming each user only posts one thing (YEA RIGHT!!!). So, the algorithms people are complaining about today really is nothing new.

Secondly, with over two billion users it would be literally impossible for the company to manually go through each and every post to see what does and does not fit their rules. Because of this, they must rely on the users to police themselves in a way.

The algorithms are set up so the users can click a button and say hey this is not good and here is why I think it is not good.

Sadly, this is very abused by people on the extremes of both political parties and anyone who is out for vengeance. Once a certain number of complaints are filed, in some cases only one complaint is enough, the algorithms automatically block the content.

It would be very easy to get four or five people to go to a certain feed and complain to get it blocked.

What is the solution?? Honestly, I don’t know and I am not sure anyone else does either. I do know that if the government gets involved in 2020 or 2024 a new president will be elected and new members of the Congress who would be able to alter anything done by this government to do what they wanted. Meaning liberals could easily set it up so ALL conservative political posts are banned and Conservatives could do the same.

If you think they wouldn’t do that who among you would have thought we would have sitting members of Congress calling for violence and violent speech against people who disagree with their line of thinking??

Shadow banning is wrong, in my opinion, as I think all users should be notified when their content is pulled or demonetized. That way they can do what they want or need to in order to get it viewed if they wish. The choice should always fall to the user not the company and definitely not the government. We are talking freedom of speech here even though it is being used on a company platform.

Which brings up my last talking point.

Do companies have the right to tell people what they can and cannot say or wear as it pertains to freedom of speech?

As much as I don’t like it because I am an opinionated person who likes to talk, it is the right of all companies to put this in place.

As a Christian, I would rather not hear the f-bomb as every other word from people but it is not my place to tell them they cannot use it. I can ASK them politely to stop and usually they will but it is their choice, not mine.

When we go to work for a company we agree to certain things like how much we will be paid and we have to sign a code of conduct and safety letter of some sort saying we agree to those terms. The same thing happens when you join Facebook or any other social media. In those terms, there are many things that basically none of us ever read we just click ok or agree and go on doing what we want.

In them, there are things outlining what will and won’t be tolerated. In social media, this includes certain types of speech and threats.

Who gets to decide what speech??

The owner or board of trustees is who and if we, the users don’t like it then all we have to do is stop using the platform. At this point people start complaining about it is how we keep up with family and get news and so on. I understand I am in the same boat with you. It doesn’t change what I said though, don’t like it stop using the social media platform.

All of that said, I dislike the censoring as much as anyone but a private company has the right to do with their products whatever they want so long as it is within the rules and regulations of this country. Censoring speech is.

Personally, I would love to see someone put up a competitor to Facebook. The competition is what stops companies from doing this sort of thing.

Meaning, whoever allows the freest speech in social media wins. For any programmers out there what are you waiting on?? LOL

A quick solution for now, maybe, find out ways to make your posts slip past the algorithms, just a thought………..

An Open Letter to Republicans Welcoming Those Who #WalkAway

Let me begin with, this movement isn’t about us.  Like you, I’m excited, and more optimistic by this than I’ve been in over a decade.  Our position in this is to do four things:

  • Welcome those who are newly coming to the Truth
  • Demonstrate by our actions the Truth
  • Protect those leaving the abuse of the left
  • Educate these new free thinkers

Brandon opened a new underground railroad, and we are the conductors.  Our job is to ensure their transition involves as little trauma as possible.

Unfortunately, we can’t remove all of it, but we can protect them, provide an example to them, and educate these newly freed people to the truth they are desperately searching for.

In return, we gain strength in our movement due to people realizing within their own free will that they don’t wish to ever again be subjugated intellectually.  We gain strength from this, and our nation gains strength.

We are to welcome those coming to the truth.

They are traumatized by the abusive actions of the left and its rigid orthodoxy.  Reading and watching their testimonials reminds me of an abused spouse fleeing their abuser.  These people have been brutalized by an ideology and mental prison system that resulted in their captivity and prayed on their fears.

The political left truly abused anyone not willing to adhere to their ideology.

They abuse us in the same de-humanizing way.

The difference is, we find it humorous as the blood libel they throw at us is ridicule at its base, and only demonstrates their own ignorance of the Truth.  Anyone who understands what Fascism believes knows it’s a form of extreme socialism, like its ideological cousin Communism … the extreme left.  And according to the left, the extreme right is found in Libertarianism and Constitutional governance.

We must demonstrate our actions to these new friends, brothers, and sisters with our actions.  Nothing speaks louder than that.  Remember, the Jewish Prophet Hosea stated,

“For I desire mercy and not sacrifice” (Hosea 6:6).

If you’re like me, you’ve been called a Nazi, fascist, homophobe, bigot, sexist, etc.  … to a point where you want to puke.   Also to the point where the visceral reaction of such baseless claims has long since lost its power.

All this blood libel does is remind you that the left can’t provide a counter to the facts you’ve presented.  The people here are not the enemy.  They have left the enemy camp in search of refuge.

These people leaving the left have been abused.

Abused for no greater crime than questioning the worldview they are presented with.

Like a woman escaping an abusive husband, we must protect them, strengthen them, and give them a place of refuge in the freedom we have enjoyed.  They are new to it and are most likely cautious and scared of this new world.

The difference between us and them is purely background and experiences.  If you are like me, and a lifelong conservative/libertarian, you’ve never known a time of intellectual servitude.  You’ve always been free.  You also have become strengthened to withstand the mindless slogans and idiotic attacks of the left.

These people have not reached that point yet, … but with our help, they will.  They are the hope of the Republic.

Finally, we must educate these people in the full breadth of their new found freedom.

We must show them by example.  Lead from the front.

As we all laughed at President Obama, when he claimed “lead from behind”, we all understand that no such state exists.  You either Lead from the front or follow from behind.

No other state exists in nature.

Answer their questions, show them the true limitlessness of their new freedom based on actual facts (including the unpleasant ones).

And embrace them as your new brothers and sisters, as that is exactly what they are.

Guest Post: I Just Need to Get This Off My Chest

I need to get this off my chest…

…I fear what lies ahead.

In all honesty, I’m desperately hoping I’m not the only person who is afraid.  I need validation for the sense of despair I have for the future of America.  The unfounded hysteria spewing forth from the left is worrisome.

When I hear and see the liberal media, celebrities, and people losing their collective minds over anything and everything our President does or says…I feel disgusted and anger from the pit of my stomach.  It literally makes me sick.  Not so much because I disagree with what their vision is for our country…but the fact that they are so closed minded and egotistical. They truly believe that it’s their way or the highway.  There is no compromise or hey let’s have on an open discussion to see what we all can agree on. Its only name-calling, ridicule, riots, protests, and violence.  Because that’s what peaceful, tolerant, anti-war, inclusive and civilized individuals do, right?

I would love to believe that Americans truly have the same beautiful vision for the future of this amazing country we are so blessed to live in.  However, I am beginning to wonder if it’s just wishful thinking.

The world we are now living in seems foreign to me…

…almost like a nightmare.

Children are attacked, threatened and harassed because they are brave enough to stand up for their beliefs, politicians condone harassment and violence against American citizens because of who they voted for, Police officers are demonized, and criminals are victimized, disrespect towards our military is increasing, being a patriotic American is offensive and our freedom of speech and 2nd amendment rights are in imminent danger of being stripped away.

Sometimes I wonder if we are looking at a civil war in our future.

Is this what the left is hoping comes to pass?

Are they seeing just how far they can push us until we finally snap? Then they can say, see they are the crazy, violent ones, those evil, racist, Nazi, homophobic Conservatives.

It’s happened before.

When people feel like their way of life, their rights, their freedoms are being threatened what recourse do they have but defend it?  Wouldn’t you? Don’t they realize if America fails, not only will we suffer, but the rest of the world will as well?  We are always there to help others in need. Americans are truly the most compassionate and giving people on the planet, but if we can’t take care of ourselves how can we help anyone else?

If something drastic doesn’t change soon, I am afraid the America I have always known and loved will forever be lost. The very ideals and principles that so many men and women have fought and died for and still defend this very day seem to be fading away before my eyes.

So, I pray.

I pray that God will open eyes and hearts before it’s too late.  I pray that somewhere, someone will start a conversation…a simple conversation with people that are willing to listen to one another without judgment or arrogance.

I pray for forgiveness…because I don’t want to be angry

I want to be a part of the solution, not the problem.  I will hold tight to my faith and cling to hope.

There is always hope.

An Open Letter To Those Who Walked Away

An open letter to any who recently joined #WalkAway:

 

First, I’d like to address those who have walked away from the left.

 

I’d like to welcome all of you.

 

You have made a very big, and scary first step toward intellectual, and political freedom.

 

Some have recognized the right as not being what you were told by your left-wing abusers.  Some have embraced the Right, others are remaining unencumbered by not choosing a new side.  Both are acceptable choices.  I encourage all of you to test the facts before you.

 

Test them with the intent of finding their flaws.  Test your old beliefs in the same way.  Go where the facts (based on context, actual history, and your personal experiences with each side) lead you.  Keep your mind as open as the left claimed to be, and as you’re just learning we on the right actually are.

 

Almost as if by programming, I’ve seen many former Democrats apologizing to others frequently.    As your minds are exposed to the warmth from your newfound friends, please know; you have no reason to apologize to me for the venom of your former party.  We are overjoyed you are opening your mind to the diversity and welcome you home to the truth. Remember, this movement isn’t about me and people like me.  This movement is about you and how you will change the future of our nation.

 

As a Christian, I can assure you, you are an answer to prayer.

 

As you are going through Cognitive Dissonance, remember to embrace it, explore it, use it to grow.  Find the Truth and follow where it leads.  If you can find a single tiny flaw with a theory or idea, that theory or idea must be re-evaluated and adjusted to account for actual facts.  The scientific method you learned about in school as a child is a good guide.

 

Next, it’s okay to disagree.  On the Right, we do not expect, nor do we demand uniformity of thought.  We are a movement of free thinkers.

 

Freedom is everything.

 

If you get any five of us together and ask our opinion on a topic, you are guaranteed a minimum of seven different answers.

 

Disagreement should not lead to conflict.  It’s an opportunity to sharpen your skills, test your known facts for flaws, and expose yourself to other ideas.  This should be encouraged, as long as you can remain friends in the end.  If you can’t break bread together afterward, you did it wrong.

Third, real diversity is found in the diversity of thought.  What you find in pop culture is the diversity of ethnicity and gender, while demanding a uniformity of thought.

 

This is exactly what you were choking on as a member of the left.  The demand of uniformity of thought is then enforced with a cult-like discipline which many of you have experienced by people you thought were your friends for the mere crime of thinking for yourself and exposing yourself to other viewpoints.  Ethnicity and gender are irrelevant when compared to character, ethics, integrity, and independent thought.  The diversity of thought is real diversity.  Without it, you have nothing.

 

Fourth, ask those of us on the right questions.  Explore what we believe and why.  We won’t be offended.  We’ve naturally developed thick skin from dealing with the militant left.  Variation of ideas and thoughts don’t offend us.  To offend me requires a lot of effort, and unless you are abusing children or animals, it’s nearly impossible to accomplish.

 

I know this is hard to recognize considering from where you’ve come, but you are safe with us.  We can disagree, and it’s okay.  It’s encouraged.

 

We on the right are happy you escaped your captivity.

 

There are no victims here, only free people.

Another Powerful #WalkAway Testimonial As The Campaign Continues To Pick Up Steam

With every passing day, the #WalkAway Campaign grows stronger. Last Saturday was no exception when a striking young woman named Lynzee Domanico posted a powerful #WalkAway testimonial chronicling her battle with being a “Closeted” conservative in the gay community.

Lynzee begins by talking about her struggles growing up in a small conservative mountain town raised by Catholic parents and how she knew at an early age that she was gay.

Lynzee goes on to share her feelings about her first marriage, to a man, that ended in divorce and recalls how liberated she felt when she found the strength to come out as a gay woman. Lynzee said she could never have imagined how her newfound power would be immediately stripped away as now she had to live as a “closeted” conservative.

She ends her powerful testimony with the fear she felt with the thought of coming out as conservative to her gay friends, and how she thought it was time to #WalkAway.

Many on the left have suggested that the #WalkAaway Campaign is a movement conceived in the Kremlin and executed by Russian bots but with authenticity like this, it’s clear the #WalkAway Campaign will continue to make some liberals rethink their blind allegiance to the Democratic party.

Welcome home Lynzee!
