Joe Angione Live Interview on Freedom in America
Latest Edition 8/13/19
I feel I don’t have much of a reason anymore to hold back the hands of the doomsday clock from finally reaching midnight that touches off the official collapse of America into its second civil war. When two bloody atrocities occur back-to-back on a single weekend...when politicians call out the names and addresses of their opponents’ biggest donors purposely to cause them physical harm...when anti-white racism is hidden by a smokescreen of so called “white supremacy”...when people are beaten up for expressing conservative ideas...and when wearing a “MAGA” hat becomes a crime...how can most Americans believe anything but the worst about public safety across the nation.
We are “letting loose the dogs of war” amongst ourselves. God help us.
Is white supremacy a hoax?
Nearly all you hear about today from leftist Democrats is Donald Trump’s white supremacist ideology and how it’s on the increase among his supporters across the nation. From the conservative side is a counter-claim made primarily by Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, that “White Supremacy is a hoax.” What is the truth? Is racism against minorities gaining in strength in America, thanks mainly to statements from the president? Or is white supremacy, and white nationalism, mostly overblown and overrated as threats to peace in the nation?
White nationalism is perceived as a slightly softer form of supremacy. The New York Times explains white nationalism as the belief that U.S. national identity should be built around white ethnicity, and that white people should therefore maintain both a demographic majority and dominance.
Various sources among the mainstream media will tell you white supremacy and white nationalism have combined in a virulent explosion of hatred for people of color, much more prevalent now than before Trump was elected president. But most of these news sources rely on information provided by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) had its start as a small civil-rights law firm in 1971. Back then, it’s said to have done some fine work in exposing the threat to society posed by groups like the Ku Klux Klan. But in recent years, the mission of the SPLC has changed to one of smearing good people and honest, patriotic organizations with false charges of bigotry and hate...all for the purpose of destroying any group that hold views counter to those advocated by progressives and other leftists in the nation.
How did the Southern Poverty Law Center sink so low? Leftists gained control of its operations and used it’s prior “good will” to raise hundreds of millions of dollars to wage war against conservatives and others who don’t agree with the left’s ideology. This year the SPLC will take in more than $135 million in donations.
Although it still maintains it “monitors hate groups and other extremists throughout the U.S. and exposes their activities to law enforcement agencies, the media and the public,” the Southern Poverty Law Center is among the most powerful voices determined to take down President Trump and his supporters with lies...branding them as evil “white Supremacists.”
SPLC can no longer hide its hateful smear tactics. Nationally renowned Washington Post columnist, Marc Thiessen, wrote last year “After years of smearing good people with false charges of bigotry, the Southern Poverty Law Center has finally been held to account. A former Islamic radical named Maajid Nawaz sued the SPLC for including him in its bogus “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists,” and this week the SPLC agreed to pay him a $3.375 million settlement and issued a public apology. Thiessen added: “The SPLC... has become a caricature of itself, labeling virtually anyone who does not fall in line with its left-wing ideology as an “extremist” or “hate group.”
A column in the National Review in September 2018 noted: “The Southern Poverty Law Center has less to do with justice than with fundraising...[It] has made so many vile, unjustified, hysterical, and hateful accusations over the years, it was bound to pay a price... and it did in a multi-million dollar law suit won by the British Muslim Maajid Nawaz and his think tank, the Quilliam Foundation, after they were smeared by the SPLC in its [fraudulent ] “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.”
Just weeks ago, The Washington Examiner’s Senior Political Correspondent, David Drucker, commented: “The Southern Poverty Law Center’s problems go well beyond the fact it’s a vicious, left-wing attack dog with no care whatsoever for the reputational and personal harm it causes by lumping Christians and anti-extremist activists in with actual neo-Nazis. The SPLC’s chief goal is to bilk naive and wealthy donors who believe it's an earnest effort to combat bigotry.”
SPLC’s lies poison reports issued by most news media. The Southern Poverty Law Center has convinced virtually every mainstream news source that there are more than 900 white supremacist organizations active in America today. Noting where this inflated figure comes from, you should automatically treat it as one weighed down heavily with bogus inclusions of conservative and Christian groups that have no guilt other than opinions contrary to the SPLC’s leftist dogma.
It’s also strange to note that, although the SPLC paints a powerful picture of hundreds of vicious anti-minority organizations threatening to push race relations in America back to the pre-civil war days, it pats itself on the back for destroying the operations of many of the leading hate groups, including the Ku Klux Klan.
Many white-racist groups diminishing in power. The once mighty Ku Klux Klan that had tens of thousands of members in the early-to-mid-twentieth century has now shrunk to a measly 5,000 to 8,000 members nationwide. However, the SPLC has had no major impact on the Klan’s demise.
Another supposed juggernaut of racial hate, a group called Vanguard America, founded in Charlottesville, VA now claims a pathetic membership of about 200 across 20 states.
David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, left it in 2000 to start a racist group called EURO European-American Unity and Rights Organization. It’s barely active in just three or four southern states.
Aryan Nations, founded in the 1970s, was once labeled by the FBI as a terrorist threat, and has also been called the “first truly nationwide terrorist network” in the US. But in the early 2000s, it broke up into three groups, and now has only one functioning group without the membership or money to cause much trouble anymore.
The American Nazi Party is a neo-Nazi political party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell; it’s headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Just like the Klan’s David Duke, Rockwell’s name carries the same connotation of clownishness, of a “weirdo” insanely holding onto hellish principles consigned forever to the dust bin of history. Due to recruitment issues along with financial and legal trouble, the party was weakened considerably and was supplanted by a party of the same name run by Rocky Suhayda, who claims Rockwell as its founder despite no direct legal or financial link between it and Rockwell’s original organization. Most of Suhayda’s Nazi Party activity is built around selling reprints of Rockwell's 1960s-era magazine The Stormtrooper on their website.
Other so-called white supremacist organizations listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center are really groups promoting conservative and/or religious themes that are considered to be flagrantly opposed to leftist principles.
Tucker Carlson: “Could white supremacists fill a football stadium?” Carlson’s contention, in suggesting white supremacy is a hoax” is that although it exists, it has nowhere near the membership or the money to threaten peace in America...certainly not at the level of racial turmoil predicted by Democrats, who see every Trump supporter as a vicious bigot. “It’s a conspiracy theory used to divide the country...” Carlson said.
Would white supremacists be numerous enough to fill a football stadium? Maybe, but more likely a high school stadium, but not a huge “big ten” university stadium.
Think about this: How many white supremacists or white nationalists do you know. If they were everywhere, and so active, you’d know at least one or two. If they were everyone who voted for Trump there would be 63 million of them creating political havoc in every city, town and rural area in America. Check your newspapers and TV news coverage. Such a high degree of repeated unrest is nowhere to be seen.
White supremacy is more like the “boogie man under the bed” conjured up to scare independents and shame conservatives into never voting for Trump or any Republican candidate ever again. It’s another variation on the “collusion hysteria” that fed Democrats’ hopes of taking down the president before he had a chance for a second term.
Remember: White supremacy is the “smokescreen” being used by Democrats to hide their anti-white hatred for the people they fear will return Donald Trump to the Oval Office in 2020.
Catholic Cardinal slams pro-abortion politicians
In what might be the first time, the American Catholic church has come down hard against the pro-abortion stance of politicians—be they seeking the presidency or other elected offices. Catholic Cardinal Raymond Burke warned pro-abortion Catholic politicians just days ago not to show up for Holy Communion because they are not following Christ.
“They may not present themselves to receive Holy Communion, because they’re not in communion with Christ,” Cardinal Burke said, according to the Catholic magazine, Church Militant.
In a follow-up interview with Fox News, the Cardinal said he is not trying to punish pro-abortion politicians; he is trying to help them by urging them to repent. “It’s not a punishment,” Burke claims. “It’s actually a favor to these people to tell them, ‘Don’t approach [to receive Holy Communion]. Because if they approach, they commit sacrilege.”
Prominent politicians like former Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi both claim to be devout Catholics, but both of them support abortions up to birth. Burke said these so-called Catholic politicians have made Americans confused about the Catholic Church’s values.
“I’ve had non-Catholic leaders of government in this nation tell me that they were certain that the Catholic teaching on abortion, and the so-called same-sex marriages, and so forth, had changed, because so many Catholics on Capitol Hill are regularly supporting this kind of legislation. And that’s a scandal,” Burke said.
“The Catholic Church teaches that every human life is valuable from the moment of conception to natural death, and abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia are grave moral evils.”
All 2020’s Catholic Democrat presidential candidates strongly support abortion. In 2020, in addition to Joe Biden, there are seven Democrat presidential candidates who are also Catholics. They include: Steve Bullock (D), governor of Montana; Bill de Blasio (D), mayor of New York City; Julián Castro (D), former secretary of housing and urban development, from Texas; John Delaney (D), former U.S. representative from Maryland; Kirsten Gillibrand (D), U.S. senator from New York; Beto O’Rourke (D), former U.S. representative from Texas and Tim Ryan (D), U.S. representative from Ohio.
A recent analysis by Politico, a political reporting organization, stated that no 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Catholics, have come out against "late-term" abortions and that most of the candidates support no restrictions — which means they support allowing abortions all the way up until the moment of birth — even though they may try to avoid the issue by being too vague.
What Cardinal Burke did not say. When condemning politicians for their support for abortion, the Cardinal offered no judgment about those Catholic voters who would knowingly vote for a pro-abortion candidate. However, since Cardinal Burke noted that abortion is “a grave moral evil”, what should Catholic voters think about the serious moral damage they might be doing to their own immortal souls if they vote for a pro-abortion candidate? Would it be a grievous sin for them to vote for such a candidate? Would this threaten the possibility of spending their eternity with Christ in heaven?
This might not worry some Catholics, the CINOs (Catholics in name only). And it would be laughed off by most persons with no religious upbringing. But for those many millions of devout Catholics, the thought of encouraging the sacrilege of killing innocent human beings in the womb by virtue of voting a pro-abortion candidate into office—and worse into the presidency—might very well move them to change their votes to a candidate who defends the sanctity of life in the womb. Right now, Donald Trump is the only candidate for the presidency who has promised to protect the lives of the unborn. May God guide you to choose wisely in November 2020.
The new Nancy Pelosi
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, isn’t courageous or clever enough to curb Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ asinine rants about a “Green New Deal,” and now her support for a radical Muslim congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, who repeatedly attacks Jewish-Americans and our government’s loyalty to Israel.
Pelosi’s so afraid AOC will take over leadership of the leftist, progressive wing of the Democrat party. She hasn’t got the guts to stand up against the growing stupidity and anti-semitism of her party’s socialist-driven freshman members. Legislative leaders like Pelosi, who won’t challenge dumb-ass ideas that threaten to become destructive laws--and their obvious hatred for Jews--are the “gifts that keep on giving” Donald Trump the power to storm into his second term as president.
Meantime, AOC, the “twitty,” former bartender from the Bronx who know far more about drink “mixology” than she knows about economics and good international relationships, has turned the Democrat Party into an evil, sick joke. Long live Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. And don’t you just love her lipstick that appears to be applied with a plasterer’s trowel. OMG…how could Democrats have sunk so low and become so brainless?
Don’t let Islamists control America
In spite of CAIR’s terrible attack on American Constitutional law and religious freedom, Democrat Congresswomen like Illan Omar and Rashida Tlaib embrace radical Islamist philosophy. Just like CAIR’s Omar Ahmad, they, too, are here to convert the nation--that means you and me--into radical Muslims who will accept America as an Islamist Caliphate. The beliefs of these U.S.-based Islamists are the same as those who are winning the battle to destroy the Christian-based culture of Western Europe. Islamist fundamentalist nations, such as the middle eastern nations of Iran and Syria, cannot hide the inhuman tyranny that is at the heart of an Islamist Caliphate. This must not be repeated here.
New Salvadoran president takes blame for migrant caravans
Fox News reports that the newly elected president of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, has taken responsibility for the migrant caravans exiting his country for the U.S., and also for the sad deaths of Salvadorians, Oscar Alberto Martinez and his daughter, who perished while attempting to cross the Rio Grande river.
President Bukele said the onus is on his government to make the country a safer place -- and one “where migration is an option, not an obligation." He took office just a month ago and promised to make El Salvador “a safer and better place”...and that “his government is responsible for fixing the problems that have forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee in the first place.”
Bukele also told Sky News, owned by the Fox organization, that his government will work to "make our country more prosperous and create jobs. So, if people have an opportunity for decent jobs, a decent education, a decent health care system and security, I know that forced migration will be reduced to zero," he said.
Although Bukele accepted blame for his country’s forcing the caravans to leave for the U.S., he went on to say that he did condemn the treatment of migrants in the United States and Mexico. This was totally unfair. More than 35,000 families from El Salvador were rescued by our Border Patrol agents at our southern border in the first eight months of fiscal year 2019.
Bukele should understand that it’s virtually impossible to accommodate these Salvadorians and those from other countries—more than 100,000 each month--in the U.S. and lodge them all in comfortable, uncrowded conditions. Some may be sleeping on the floor, eating the most basic foods available, and often lack recreational opportunities. But, we took them in when El Salvador threw them out. Without our compassionate acceptance, they would have died for lack of any assistance at all.
Personal sacrifice needed to stop migrant invasions
It seems that every time President Trump decides to do something unconventional to stop the invasion of hundreds of thousands of migrants across our southern border, the Demon-Rats and their media slaves begin scare campaigns to set the public against the president.
When Trump decided to declare a national emergency to get money to build a wall, the Demon -Rats and their media bootlickers (lets simply call them all the Deep State) shouted that he was violating Article One of the U.S. Constitution, mis-using funds needed somewhere else, and creating a situation where some future Democrat president would use a national emergency to pass the “green new deal” into law. Ridiculous.
Just recently, when he said he’d close the border with Mexico as a last resort for ending Mexico’s support for migrant invaders by assisting them in crossing Mexico to overrun our country, the deep state unleashed a wave of messages telling Americans of all the Mexican fruits and vegetables and other products from that country that would no longer be available in the U.S. And they attempted to terrify business people about all the trade they’d lose with Mexico.
The deep state knows how very spoiled and selfish many Americans are when it comes to product availability and low prices. They want instant gratification that’s dirt cheap. Tell them that strawberries or tomatoes won’t be on store shelves for a time, or will cost a lot more when supplied from somewhere other than Mexico, and you’d think their life depended on these foods or perhaps on some seafood item caught by Mexicans off their coasts.
Rationing toughened America’s “greatest generation.” Few of us remember the stringent rationing of food items and many other products that was necessary to help win World War II. Our parents and grand-parents took that scarcity in stride, knowing it was vital to ensuring their freedom from terrible enemies. And none of them died because they were short of anything.
But today, too many of us are selfish and unwilling to sacrifice anything to protect the land of the free and the home of the brave. We understand that American lives may be lost in fighting for our freedom. But when it comes to some trivial thing we like to put on our dinner table, we won’t give it up without raising a big stink.
And what about American businesses that may suffer losses because they can no longer trade with Mexico? So what about them? Let them help themselves by finding new products to sell and new markets to serve. No one has guaranteed them a right to survive forever. No one ever guaranteed me a right to a job or permanent employment. No one has guaranteed that right to anybody.
So suck it up America! We need border protection whatever the cost. Get creative. Become inventive in solving your problems without the government having to guarantee you anything other than your natural, basic rights to life and liberty. In this day and age, as always, personal sacrifice must be accepted by everyone if America is to continue to exist.
President Trump, close the border for as long as needed. Courageous, selfless Americans will deal with the consequences.
White House salaries:
Trump saves tax money;
Obama pissed it away~
It was revealed that, on Friday, February 15th, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees.
The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary; instead he donated it to an amazing patriotic cause.
The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $60.9 million under Obama, a savings of $25.1 million.
...Here are some other key findings:
There are 140 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
Thirty-nine fewer staffers are also dedicated to assisting The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are only five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump compared to forty-four staffers who served Queen Michelle Obama in 2009.
However, it's what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking. Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries. That’s amazing. It's so great to have a president who loves our brave military men and women so much.
As you might have guessed: the administration’s announcement about employees and their salaries received virtually no attention in the liberal media.
