French Conservative Le Pen is mightier than the Sword!

 

Think this can’t happen here? The trial balloons have already been set loose regarding Trump’s mental fitness and the use of 25th amendment. Let’s take a look at how the Conservatives are doing over in France regarding this issue.

They must be afraid Le Pen will run for President again, and win this time.

 

 

By Mustang

I’m not sure that many people in the USA care all that much about European politics —and perhaps even less about politics in France, and yet what is happening in France today is uncannily similar to the antics of the American left.  Activities, by the way, that seem to demonstrate that the leftist movement is indeed one of global proportions.  I would not be surprised to learn that the founder and financier of the so-called Open Society Foundation has a hand in the anti-Democratic/anti-Republican shenanigans unfolding in France today.

Marine Le Pen is a French politician and lawyer who serves as President of the National Rally Party (formerly known as the National Front).  She is a member of the French National Assembly and the youngest daughter of the founder of the National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen.  She additionally serves as a regional councilor and a member of the European Parliament.  In 2012, she placed third in France’s contest for the presidency, and in 2017 she placed second in the first round of elections.  In certain American publications, Le Pen is regarded as among the world’s most influential people (2011, 2015, 2016) and ranked in Politico as the second-most influential member of the European Parliament.

Marine Le Pen may be described in several ways, but she is unmistakably pro-French.  She received extensive media attention during her run for the presidency in 2010 when, during a speech at Lyon, she compared the blocking of public streets and squares within French cities, in order to accommodate Moslem prayer, with the Nazi occupation of France during World War II.  She said, “For those who want to talk a lot about World War II, if it’s about occupation, then we could also talk about Muslim prayers in the streets, because that is occupation of territory.  It is an occupation of sections of the territory, of districts in which religious laws apply.  There are, of course, no tanks, there are no soldiers, but it is nevertheless an occupation and it weighs heavily on local residents.”

Naturally, the media did flip-flops and the Moslem’s who have come to believe that they are allowed to do anything they wish —because they are Moslems — rioted.  Apparently, Le Pen is made of sand; she doesn’t care what Moslems think —or the press either, for that matter.  She speaks directly to the French people.  It is my belief that Le Pen wants to regain large swathes of French territory lost to the Moslem horde and it will be interesting to see whether she will eventually make it to the presidency.

It will be a rough road.  In 2015, the French government instituted an investigation for “distributing violent images.”  The images she publicized were pictures of the murder of American journalist James Foley —which came only a few weeks after jihadists murdered 130 people in Paris attacks (November 2015).  Ah, but as a member of parliament, Le Pen has immunity from prosecution.  No matter … her immunity was lifted in order for her to face trial for posting images that her political enemies claim will “incite terrorism, pornography, or harm human dignity.”  Were she ever convicted for this crime, she could end up in jail for 3-years and face a hefty fine.  Le Pen isn’t giving up, though …

“I thought I had been through it all: well, no.  For having condemned Daesh [ISIS] horrors in tweets, the justice system is putting me through psychiatric tests.  Just how far will they go?”  Later on, Le Pen appeared on BFM-TV, a French 24-hour news broadcast stating, “Totalitarian regimes use such methods against opponents to make them look like their crazy.”  She told reporters that she would not submit to such tests.  “I’d like to see how the judge would try and force me to do it,” she said.  Apparently, magistrates in France do have the power to order psychiatric tests —but Le Pen is having none of it.

Why did she share “horror pictures” of Moslem atrocities?  She did it in response to a French journalist who drew a comparison between ISIS and her own political party.  She later deleted the picture of James Foley after a request from his family to do so.  She said that she had been unaware of the identity of the individual in the murder picture.

So, what is going on in France?  I think it’s politics as usual.  Le Pen represents the conservative right; her enemies are on the communist left.  Her claim that she is being politically persecuted has been picked up by other European conservatives, as well … and they have rushed to her defense.  While Le Pen is attempting to regain popular support after her defeat to President Macron in 2017, her party is facing separate legal inquiries into allegations over the misuse of EU funds.

There you have it, folks.  The leftist assault on conservative (traditional) values is not just happening in the United States.  I can only conclude that George Soros (and his minions) is a very busy little bee.

37 Examples of Real College Courses That Are Too Crazy to Believe

 

 

While we hear how college kids are outraged at the burden of huge debts that will take them years to pay off, few are as outraged about the courses being taught. The nonsense of Antifa and the diminishing of free speech by conservatives, one has to ask what are our children getting out of a college education? Here are a few snippets:

The Liberal Contribution

 

The Liberal Contribution       Guest Post by Mustang

What have liberals given us? Let’s begin by defining liberalism, realizing that it must be a time-stamped definition. We should examine the term liberalism based on these two classifications: classic liberalism vs. neo-liberalism.

In the former classification, we mean to say a political philosophy involving liberty, equality, freedom of speech, a free press, religious tolerance, free-market capitalism, civil rights, and societal cooperation.

By neo-liberalism, we mean progressivism, which is the support of social reform, or the advancement of science, technology, economic development, and social organization. In practical terms, it means the adoption of a 170-year old notion supporting communism.

In classic liberalism, we are reminded of the early American founders, who gave us the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the US Constitution). In the latter definition, we find the general acceptance of communism … embracing the philosophy of Karl Marx, or to be specific, the repudiation of classic-liberalism.

Thus, we define the political differences between Americans as those on the right (conservatives seeking to maintain classic liberalism), and those on the left (those seeking to change America from what its founders intended to Marxism). There are profound differences in these two camps. It is much more than a war on words; it is beneath the surface, what these words mean as expressed by those who utter them. Conservatives (those on the right) want to maintain the ideals of our founding fathers—as expressed in the American constitution (and Bill of Rights), while the liberals (those on the left) wish to redefine the Constitution and Bill of Rights according to how they envision America ought to be. In my view, how it ought to be, according to liberals, is nothing like how our founding fathers intended it.

What are the accomplishments of American conservatives?

Conservative ideology gave us federalism, independent courts, the Panama Canal, the Interstate Highway System, Labor Laws, environmental laws that take into account the interests of business and the welfare of the American people, space exploration, the suppression of fascist regimes throughout the world, public education, and the Hoover Dam Project. Conservatives favor the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the US Constitution, small government, law and order(1), preserving western civilization, religious freedom (which is to say theological accountability), the separation of government and religion, limited government regulation, strong national defense, opposition to the concept of globalism, and opposition to globalization.

Conservatives believe in the foundations of the American Republic. Liberals subscribe to expanding these views beyond the US Constitution, including national welfare, interference in State sovereignty, national healthcare, higher taxes, and liberal immigration policies.

What do conservatives advocate?

· Maintain traditional American values

· Support the values associated with western civilization

· Implementation of conservative economic policies

· Oppose global communism and Islamist extremism

· Foster individual liberty

· Limit government power and control over the people

· Oppose high taxes and limit government spending

We will now examine examples of neo-liberalism as a juxtaposition to conservative values. What we have observed among liberals over the past few years is anything but Americanism. Liberal groups have demanded curtailment of freedom of expression if, in the opinion of liberals, verbal or oral expression offends any group of people within society. Their notion is one that inhibits free expression, which is counter to the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Their ideology is an updated rendition of Mao’s 1960’s cultural revolution; here I will offer several examples of liberal anti-Americanism(2):

· In June 2016, a liberal male was arrested in Las Vegas after attempting to grab a police officer’s weapon, telling authorities that he wanted the gun in order to kill Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.

· In July 2016, a supporter of Hillary R. Clinton set an American flag on fire. In that same month, liberal protesters damaged automobiles and fought with supporters of Donald J. Trump in San Jose, California.

· In August 2016, anti-Trump protesters physically assaulted attendees at a Trump political rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

· In August 2016, a citizen was assaulted at a Tennessee garage sale because he was wearing a pro-Trump T-shirt. Later in the month, a New Jersey conservative was attacked with a crowbar during a political rally.

· Later in the year, a Republican Party office was firebombed and spray-painted with a Nazi symbol, a high school student was attacked for announcing on social media that she supported presidential candidate Trump, and in November, the president of College Republicans at Cornell University was assaulted by Hillary Clinton supporters.

· In December 2016, an “anti-bullying” “black lives matter” advocate was arrested after she shoved an injured a 74-year old man outside Trump Towers in New York City.

· In January 2017, a Trump supporter was knocked unconscious when anti-Republican protesters repeatedly beat him on the head.

· In April 2017, a parade in Oregon was cancelled after self-identified liberals threatened to use violence against anyone participating in the celebration.

· In May 2017, Republican Tom Garrett and his family received death threats. Later that month, the FBI arrested persons threatening to shoot Republican Representative Martha McSally.

· A college professor was arrested for assault and battery of people supporting Donald J. Trump. Three individuals were hospitalized in this assault.

· Democrat and Senator Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson shot five Republican members of congress during a GOP baseball practice.

· A riot in Charlottesville, Virginia resulted when so-called “anti-Fascist” and “Black Lives Matter” demonstrators attacked a group of rally-approved “white nationalist” activists. One liberal anti-Fascist demonstrator attacked the crowd with an automobile, killing one of his own demonstrators and injuring 19 other persons.

As to the foregoing, we have not credited the impact of the left-leaning/communist American press. Here is what we do know: the news media seriously distorts public reaction to Donald J. Trump and/or the conservative agenda. It is a matter of seeing only what they wish to see, which in order to make any sense at all, must be part of the leftist narrative. Choosing to publish stories that reflect the conservative right in a bad light while ignoring the atrocities of the liberal left is nothing more than professional malfeasance. Meanwhile, the American left continues to pursue the Law of Merited Impossibility, which holds that “even though it will never happen, you bigoted conservatives will deserve it.”

Postscript (1) and (2):

Let me add two postscripts: by “Law and Order,” I mean to suggest laws that apply to everyone equally. It does not mirror the leftist definition, otherwise Hillary Clinton would be in prison right now. In addition, research for the examples of anti-American behavior was provided by my good friend Bob Farmerie.

 

Yo Nancy Pelosi, we’re saying hi from the Redneck Riviera

After Nancy’s remark about the knuckle draggers yesterday Pelosi: ‘It’s God and Guns’ the reason knuckle draggers won’t vote for Hillary I thought I would take a spin in my way back machine and give you this. Warning, a bit of rough language in clip.

The Grand Old Party will need a big tent to git er done in the coming November election. Here is a reminder to the beltway folks, the political class, we vote too!! We are out here on the Redneck Riviera, clinging to our God and Guns. A time for a bit of a break from the political. Enjoy the day.

The real goal is to restrict gun ownership by conservatives?

Attorney General Lynch was on five network shows on Sunday. The last time this happened was Susan Rice spinning the Benghazi video lie. So indeed, what the regime has in mind is editing out the reality of the 9-11 calls. Any mention that the terrible killing of 49 people was an Islamic terrorist. The office of propaganda is in full swing to focus on guns, guns and guns. We have been set up earlier with stories that the right is as dangerous, thus when the government comes knocking at your door it will be more than Islamic terrorists they will be after. First an earlier post, then at the end I will throw in a couple of earlier posts as examples.

West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” And just who are these “Violent Far-Right” folks?

It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”

The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.

“The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”

What will put you on the list:

1. Posting things the government doesn’t like onto social media.

Tweeting and posting to Facebook could contribute to getting oneself landed on the no-fly list. According to the 2013 document:

“[P]ostings on social media sites… should not be discounted merely because of the manner in which it was received.”

As the Huffington Post notes, the document contains language to protect Americans “engaging solely in constitutionally protected activities,” meaning that one can freely express themselves, pending no other suspicions.

2. Someone thinks that you are a terrorist — or maybe just does not like you.

If a fellow American so chooses, that individual can submit names they deem to be suspicious, which the federal government must consider until they can determine the legitimacy of the tipster.

3. The government made a mistake.

The federal government is not perfect, and can often make mistakes. Sometimes, those mistakes have resulted in lawsuits.

4. You have the same name as a potential terrorist.

5. Traveling the globe.

If an American likes to travel to exotic locations, they too can be placed on the no-fly list. Areas of the planet that are particularly rife with terrorist activities set off red flags, which can complicate one’s good standing in air travel.

While the average American doesn’t travel to terrorist-heavy countries, many immigrants wish to visit family members. In addition, some professions require overseas travel to dangerous parts of the world, such as journalists and government contractors.

Obama to go after guns of those on Social Security disability

The Social Security Administration has announced the details of a new rule that would bar many receiving federal disability payments from owning firearms.

“The Social Security Administration’s proposal doesn’t require an individual to be adjudicated mentally defective or to pose a risk to himself or others,” Lars Dalesiede, a NRA spokesman, said. “Instead they are set to strip away your constitutional rights just because you meet a set of criteria established by a group of faceless bureaucrats you’ll never meet. That puts thousands of Americans in the terrible position of choosing whether to pay their bills or give up their constitutional rights.”

The group called the president’s push for the new rule “embarrassing and shameful.”

Will taking an anxiety pill let Obama take your guns?

The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,

The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.

…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.

Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.

Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.

They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.

National Guard drills include actors playing ‘Right Wingers’

It wasn’t so long ago we posted that West Point was indoctrinating cadets about the dangerous Americans. The dangerous Americans were not ones we would think of first. West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”

Now we learn that we have now moved on to the National Guard. Desensitizing them, dividing us once again. Us and them. Here we go:

A National Guard Drill earlier this month in California featured actors pretending to be angry Americans, screaming “right-wing” rhetoric at the soldiers.The exercise, which was sold to the public as a standard military exercise to help the guard deal with a hypothetical dirty bomb attack, included 200 national guard teaming up with local law enforcement units. But the weird thing about the drill is not the fact that the guard is training for a dirty bomb, it’s who they are training to see as the enemy.

Local footage captured a small part of the drill as National Guardsmen pushed back a group of actors playing American Citizens. One of the actors can be heard yelling, “I’m a sovereign citizen, I refuse to recognize you guys, I refuse to recognize you.”

Published on Apr 11, 2015

National Guard conducts Dirty Bomb drill in Richmond, CA April 11, 2015. Soldiers conduct riot control drill against “sovereign citizen”.

Hillary Clinton should have stayed home and baked those cookies

Update: Don’t miss this one.

MONICA CROWLEY: Was Hillary Clinton running her own rogue intel operation?

We all know that the only reason you would deliberately and premeditatedly set up a private email address and server is to have total control over your communications — to keep people away from those communications and to retain the ability to edit and delete your content.

In Hillary Clinton’s case, given her long history of concealment and duplicity, total control was the system’s purpose, not to keep track of Chelsea’s bridal gift registry.

A story originally reported in 2013 (and little-noticed at the time) may offer a deeper dimension to the reasons she wanted this control — and it leaves us with many new, unanswered questions.

Read more: Washington Times

Hillary, why didn’t you just make those cookies? Let us hope she is in a world of hurt for this last nefarious act of hers. No need to recall her sordid past.

You know, it is that vast right wing conspiracy that first went after her husband and now no doubt her and her little server.
