Is there not one among you who have the character, the integrity and courage to stand up and proclaim what is right for this community and in turn what is good for our nation? Is there not just one who will pick up the banner of what is honest and true?
Over the past 2 decades, we have watched you become cheerleaders for those who sent our children to die in an unjust unwarranted war based on lies told by the government and promoted by you.
Your actions or lack of action has directly contributed to the death of people in this community and this nation. You are part of corruption that could, for the first time in 243 years, result in irrecoverable harm to our communities and our republic.
We can survive incompetence and stupidity, but not the poison of corruption. I am not surprised to see the impeachment lies and poison you spew at our communities, it was nonetheless disappointing.
And every time I am forced by the situation to be in earshot of a legacy media production, I am reminded that you are placed by most Americans on the same level as child pornographers. Or child molesters and baby killers.
So, we watched you cheer and announce with great enthusiasm New York’s passage of a law to allow abortion up to the moment of birth. And we watched as you hid the Jeffery Epstein child molestation facts, and for years you protected the world’s most prolific pedophile from being stopped.
There are no words to properly label this kind of evil. Nor law appropriate to convict you of these crimes. Your willingness to take part in these vile acts with a smile on your face has destroyed your soul and the souls of those near or around you. Yes, those who are swept up by your black cancer, forcing their own heinous actions or inactions are damned.
And President Trump is right, this is WAR, TOTAL WAR and freedom loving Americans better had wake up and vote accordingly, all incumbents, with few exceptions, need to be defeated in the upcoming 2020 election. And we must re-elect President Trump, it is the only chance we have.
Religious, Spiritual, Agnostic or Atheist what President Trump has done is miraculous. Black, White, Yellow or Brown what President Trump has done is all-inclusive. Muslim, Jewish, Christian, or Hindu what President Trump has done is godly. Conservative, Moderate, Progressive, or Libertarian what President Trump has done is American.
We Are Living In A Fascist State.
And the proof is the fact that none of the people who are guilty of sedition have not been charged with the felonies associated with these crimes.
The proof also lies in the Clinton email crimes, the misuse of classified materials and the destruction of material evidence.
Forget the liberals and the conservatives and the legacy media, what lies beneath these two-dimensional organizations is the overwhelming material and witness evidence of a system of government most closely related to fascism, and not a constitutional republic.
What used to be our nation of laws, applicable to all persons, no longer exists. One need only to look at the Department of Justice, why are these major players in the coup attempt are still walking around as free people? Let alone profiting financially for their acts of treason and sedition?
The facts are Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Robert Mueller, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, Sally Yates, Bruce Ohr, Andrew Weissmann, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and a host of other lower level DNC operatives in the US intelligence community and aligned mainstream media organizations are being protected by the fascist state that still operates today.
Need more proof, look at Christopher Wray, the current Director of the FBI, who is shielding all the aforementioned deep-state fascists by withholding material evidence, including texts between Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and who knows how many others.
This is without question the acts of a fascist government, it could not be clearer. And this is going on right now, right in front of your face.
Some people have likened our current political crises as a battle for the soul of these United States and I must agree with them.
And President Trump is right, this is WAR, TOTAL WAR and freedom loving Americans better had wake up and vote accordingly, all incumbents, with few exceptions, need to be defeated in the upcoming 2020 election. And we must re-elect President Trump, it is the only chance we have.
A Question for Americans: Why are those who are harming this country, it’s people, our way of life, being allowed to continue obvious acts of *sedition and treason?
Why do the people who orchestrated an illegal, unconstitutional seizure of power still walking around as free men and women?
*Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent towards, or resistance against established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interest of sedition.

Every American who still clings to an idea of a democrat party being the party of fairness and democracy needs to watch this video. Stop the enslavement and abuse of your Child today. The incontrovertible truth is; every time your child hears the lie that the earth will end in 12 years your child is psychologically abused, or when they are told the democrat party is their friend, your child is being enslaved to a system and a reality that does not exist.
Thank you Kirstjen Nielsen for your service to our country. You brought a touch of class to a classless city. Good Luck and God Bless.
How did Omar and Ellison Win in Minnesota?
This is another example of the Minnesota local news organization’s failure to report the truth about Oman and Ellison. Their intentional lies of omission to influence and mislead the minds of Minnesota voters. As a 50-year resident of Minnesota I think it unlikely Jew hating, Anti-American, woman beater would have been elected if the people of Minnesota had not been lied to and misled.
The local media have committed no less than treason against the people of Minnesota and this nation.
These are not journalists, or even reporters, they are the worst kind of back stabbing peddlers of propaganda who are telling you lies with a smile on their face. They are promoting lies as the Truth. The local media continually works to deceive people about President Trump, local Democrat political candidates, and anything that does not further the left’s political agenda. These actions and the people involved are an enemy of democracy and in turn the people. Causing great harm to Minnesota and its residents.
They should be condemned by all those who love this state and this country. And I hope this reaches all those employed at these so call news organizations, from the cleanup crew to the weather folks to the head of these organizations.
It’s truly sad how the local news has followed the national propagandists and truthful, complete reporting has virtually disappeared from every aspect of news delivery.
On March 5th, 2019 President Donald Trump signed an executive order aiming to stem the number of suicides among veterans by creating a high-level task force to develop research strategies and plans to tackle the problem and provide grants for communities to help former troops who are struggling. How much time was dedicated to reporting this? None? 20 seconds? How much time was spent on stories like Russian collusion, hookers peeing on Trump, or how many scoops of ice cream the President had at a dinner event?
And how much time was spent explaining the Democrats of New York passage of legislation allowing baby killings? How much time was spent explaining how democrats pass a law to allow patients and Doctors kill a viable infant up to the moment of birth? None? 20 seconds? The local media is in no uncertain terms a part of this, be it in compliance by omission at minimum.
To reiterate, the local news organizations are responsible for these Jew hating, Anti-American, woman beater losers getting elected by their lies of omission. Their overt lies and putting a political agenda before the truth. These people have ZERO credibility and should be at least ignored if not booted from our state. They have done an enormous dis-service to Minnesotans. They have brought shame to this state and the people who live here.
FBI and Justice Department Officials Guilty of Non-Stop Felony Crimes Committed Against President Trump Before And After Election
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Guilty of Committing Child Abuse On Millions of American Children
Each time Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tells our children the world will end in 12 years in an apocalypse caused by fossil fuel use she is not only lying she is committing nothing less than psychological child abuse. She has a weak mind, we all know that, but this goes into a whole new territory.
She is recruiting teachers and whole classrooms into her doomsday cult. Imagine your 8 years old and your teacher bring to class an infamous buffoon to tell them the earth will be destroyed if we do not follow her environmental beliefs. You would be scared out of your mind. Terrorized by a woman who seen by some as a savior of the human race. Some savior, she has no idea the consequences of her word or the devastating consequences we would all face if her green deal were enacted.
For example, she doesn’t understand that fossil fuels power the ability to generate the food that keeps Americans and much of the world ALIVE! Her stupidity is unparalleled in the history of the U.S. congress. She no longer borders on the criminal, she is guilty of abusing the hearts and minds of our children, she is committing felonies every day and someone needs to hold her accountable.
We need to do something to fight this child abuse. Call or write your Senators, your Representative in Congress. Tell them she is committing child abuse on a massive scale. We all know the justice department is full of partisan liars and fools so it’s unlikely any of them would do the right thing.
The FBI and Justice Department along with the legacy media has proven themselves to be traitors. So, it’s up to us to pressure our representatives in Washington to stop Occasion Cortez from further child abuse. Get Busy!!!
By Jeffrey Lord
As Democrats prepare to nominate Sen. Barack Obama to be the first black president, the Democratic National Committee and its chairman, Howard Dean, have whitewashed the party’s horrific and lengthy record of racism. The omission is in the section of the DNC website that describes the party’s history. The missing history raises the obvious question of whether the Democrats, unable or simply unwilling to put their party on record as taking direct responsibility for one of the worst racial crimes of the ages, will be able to run a campaign free of the racial animosities it has regularly brought both to American presidential campaigns and American political and social life in general.
The DNC website section labeled “Party History,” is in fact scrubbed clean of the not-so-little dirty secret that fueled Democrats’ political successes for over a century and a half and made American life a hell on earth for black Americans. Literally, the DNC official history, which begins with the creation of the party in 1800, gets to the creation of the DNC itself in 1848 and then–poof!–the next sentence says: “As the 19th Century came to a close, the American electorate changed more and more rapidly.” It quickly heads into a riff on poor immigrants coming to America.
In a stroke, 52 years of Democratic history vanishes. Disappeared faster than the truth in the Clinton administration. Why would this be? Allow me to sketch in a few facts from those missing 52 years. For that matter, lets add in the facts from the party history before and after those 52 years, since they aren’t mentioned by the Democrats’ National Committee either.
So what’s missing?
- There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms supporting slavery. There were six from 1840 through 1860.
- There is no reference to the number of Democratic presidents who owned slaves. There were seven from 1800 through 1861
- There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject. There were 20, from 1868 through 1948.
- There is no reference to “Jim Crow” as in “Jim Crow laws,” nor is there reference to the role Democrats played in creating them. These were the post-Civil War laws passed enthusiastically by Democrats in that pesky 52-year part of the DNC’s missing years. These laws segregated public schools, public transportation, restaurants, rest rooms and public places in general (everything from water coolers to beaches). The reason Rosa Parks became famous is that she sat in the “whites only” front section of a bus, the “whites only” designation the direct result of Democrats.
- There is no reference to the formation of the Ku Klux Klan, which, according to Columbia University historian Eric Foner, became “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there reference to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease’s description of the Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”
- There is no reference to the fact Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The 13th banned slavery. The 14th effectively overturned the infamous 1857 Dred Scott decision (made by Democratic pro-slavery Supreme Court justices) by guaranteeing due process and equal protection to former slaves. The 15th gave black Americans the right to vote.
- There is no reference to the fact that Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866. It was passed by the Republican Congress over the veto of President Andrew Johnson, who had been a Democrat before joining Lincoln’s ticket in 1864. The law was designed to provide blacks with the right to own private property, sign contracts, sue and serve as witnesses in a legal proceeding.
- There is no reference to the Democrats’ opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1875. It was passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses Grant. The law prohibited racial discrimination in public places and public accommodations.
- There is no reference to the Democrats’ 1904 platform, which devotes a section to “Sectional and Racial Agitation,” claiming the GOP’s protests against segregation and the denial of voting rights to blacks sought to “revive the dead and hateful race and sectional animosities in any part of our common country,” which in turn “means confusion, distraction of business, and the reopening of wounds now happily healed.”
- There is no reference to four Democratic platforms, 1908-20, that are silent on blacks, segregation, lynching and voting rights as racial problems in the country mount. By contrast the GOP platforms of those years specifically address “Rights of the Negro” (1908), oppose lynching (in 1912, 1920, 1924, 1928) and, as the New Deal kicks in, speak out about the dangers of making blacks “wards of the state.”
- There is no reference to the Democratic Convention of 1924, known to history as the “Klanbake.” The 103-ballot convention was held in Madison Square Garden. Hundreds of delegates were members of the Ku Klux Klan, the Klan so powerful that a plank condemning Klan violence was defeated outright. To celebrate, the Klan staged a rally with 10,000 hooded Klansmen in a field in New Jersey directly across the Hudson from the site of the convention. Attended by hundreds of cheering convention delegates, the rally featured burning crosses and calls for violence against African-Americans and Catholics.
- There is no reference to the fact that it was Democrats who segregated the federal government, at the direction of President Woodrow Wilson upon taking office in 1913. There \is a reference to the fact that President Harry Truman integrated the military after World War II.
- There is reference to the fact that Democrats created the Federal Reserve Board, passed labor and child welfare laws, and created Social Security with Wilson’s New Freedom and FDR’s New Deal. There is no mention that these programs were created as the result of an agreement to ignore segregation and the lynching of blacks. Neither is there a reference to the thousands of local officials, state legislators, state governors, U.S. congressmen and U.S. senators who were elected as supporters of slavery and then segregation between 1800 and 1965. Nor is there reference to the deal with the devil that left segregation and lynching as a way of life in return for election support for three post-Civil War Democratic presidents, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt.
- There is no reference that three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill in the U.S. House came from Democrats, or that 80% of the “nay” vote in the Senate came from Democrats. Certainly there is no reference to the fact that the opposition included future Democratic Senate leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a former Klan member) and Tennessee Senator Albert Gore Sr., father of Vice President Al Gore.
- Last but certainly not least, there is no reference to the fact that Birmingham, Ala., Public Safety Commissioner Bull Connor, who infamously unleashed dogs and fire hoses on civil rights protestors, was in fact–yes indeed–a member of both the Democratic National Committee and the Ku Klux Klan.
Reading the DNC’s official “Party History” of the Democrats and the race issue and civil rights is not unlike reading “In Through the Looking Glass”: ” ‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean–neither more nor less.’ ”
Here’s this line from the DNC: “With the election of Harry Truman, Democrats began the fight to bring down the final barriers of race . . .” Truman, of course, was elected in 1948, and to his great credit he did in fact, along with then-Minneapolis Mayor Hubert Humphrey, begin to push the Democrats towards a pro-civil-rights stance. This culminated in the passage of the 1960s civil rights laws–legislation that redid what had been done by Republicans a hundred years earlier but undone by the Democrats’ support for segregation. But the notion that “Democrats began to bring down the final barriers of race” raises the obvious questions. What were these barriers doing there in the first place? And who exactly was responsible for creating them?
AS IF TO CONFIRM the “Who, me?” racial psychology behind the DNC website, Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats passed a House resolution on July 29 sponsored by Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen. The resolution, passed by voice vote, concludes this way:
Resolved, That the House of Representatives–
(1) acknowledges that slavery is incompatible with the basic founding principles recognized in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal;
(2) acknowledges the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery and Jim Crow;
(3) apologizes to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow; and
(4) expresses its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.
What word is missing here?
You got it. The word “Democrat.” Never mentioned anywhere. As with the DNC website, all these terrible things–somehow, apparently, it seems, so they keep hearing–happened. Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Cohen and their fellow House Democrats just can’t understand how. But, you know, whatever. They are sorry. Really.
Are they? Let’s take them up on this.
After all those Democratic platforms and conventions that championed slavery and segregation, what do you think the chances are they will use the next big occasion to have the Democratic platform formally apologize for the active, frequently violent and decidedly official support of the Democratic Party for slavery, segregation, lynching, the Ku Klux Klan and all the rest?
Better yet, do you think they’ll pass a resolution promising to use the funds raised from all those Jefferson-Jackson Day fundraisers to pay reparations for slavery? (Did I mention that while the DNC discusses party co-founders Jefferson and Jackson, it neglects to mention that between them the two owned an estimated 360 slaves?)
Will the NAACP and other groups seeking reparations from nongovernment entities for their role in supporting slavery (companies like Aetna, Wachovia and Chase along with educational institutions like Brown University) finally zero in on the prime historical mover behind some of the worst chapters in American history? Will they sue the Democrats?
The Democrats are poised to self implode so maybe they will apologize for slavery? Will they start paying reparations not from tax dollars but their own dollars for what they have done?
Do they have the guts to publicly admit what serious history records of their deeds? Are they capable of running a campaign without playing the race card as they have played it for the better part of two centuries? Can they even escape the race psychology that has indelibly branded them as America’s Party of Race?
Or, when it comes to their own responsibility for race relations in America, will they order up more of what, under the circumstances, is a very appropriate word for the DNC website?

Democrats: Freaks, Goons, Sodomites, And Now We Can Add Baby Killers.
The truth is unconscionable, Democrats Pass Legislation allowing abortion up to the moment of birth.
FEBRUARY 8, 2019
New York legislature stood up and cheered when the billed passed allowing abortions to take place up to the minute of birth. Killing viable babies just about to leave the mothers womb. It was a scene that many feel is the most revolting and evil ever coming out of a state government. And even if you’re not the most religious person you have to ask, what God thinks about killing babies. And what judgement the supporters of infanticide will face.
What has gone so wrong with the Democrat party? How did it turn into this extremist, anything goes party.
Well the truth is, this is what they always have been. Racists, liars, murderers of the innocent is just the tip of the iceberg. Traitors who are willing to sell out America for money and power. It was the Democrat party that passed jim crow laws, formed the KKK , started a bloody civil war to defend slavery. And let us not forget the church burnings and the lynchings targeting Black men, women and children.
