TIME FOR THE UNITED STATES TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST TURKEY

Turkish offensive in Kurdish-held Syrian enclave sets up collision course with US

Damage to the Afrin region of Syria reportedly caused by Turkish forces.

Civilians have been killed, their neighborhoods destroyed and at least one water treatment plant heavily damaged in the Turkish military offensive against the Kurdish-held Syrian enclave of Afrin, according to video, photos and on-the-ground accounts reviewed by Fox News.

Some of the reporting, which included the apparent deaths of children, is too graphic to publish. Some of the accounts of what is happening in Afrin also cannot be independently verified.

The Turkish intervention, called “Operation Olive Branch,” began in late January and, according to national security specialists, further complicates the conflict in Northern Syria involving Kurdish forces that worked with the United States to rout the Islamic State (ISIS).

“The Turkish attempt to drive the Kurds from Afrin places the U.S. in a very difficult position,” said Tara Maller, a former military analyst for the CIA who is now a senior policy adviser with the Counter Extremism Project. “If the U.S. is seen as abandoning the Kurds, its allies and the most effective fighting force against ISIS, it could result in the loss of credibility and an unwillingness for others to cooperate with the U.S. in the future against ISIS and other terrorist groups.”

While some 2,000 U.S. forces are in the region, Turkey has threatened to clear the Kurds from its border with Syria. The strategy could impact the town of Manbij, widely reported to be a base for U.S. troops.

Maller, who reviewed photos and video for Fox News, said that “there are U.S. troops in this area, in physical proximity to the fighting. The U.S. has said it is not moving its forces from this area and would hit back hard if attacked. At the same time, the U.S. wants to avoid alienating Turkey and pushing it further into Russia’s sphere of influence. The U.S. must work through diplomatic channels to lessen the tension in the area and prevent this confrontation from drawing in other players and becoming a separate war, which will only embolden ISIS and other radical groups.”

Afrin is home to the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, a Kurdish militia. The Turkish government maintains the YPG is a terrorist group and offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged a military struggle against Turkey since the 1980s. At the same time, however, YPG is a central element of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces that now control great swaths of Syria.

Returning from overseas last week, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis gave a wide-ranging brief to reporters, one that touched on the Afrin conflict. Mattis said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had recently visited the Turkish capital,  Ankara, where he dealt with issues “causing friction” and a “loss of rapport between us and our NATO ally Turkey.”

Mattis continued. “And while we understand their (Turkey’s) legitimate security concerns, as I’ve mentioned several times, that does not align with us concurring with attacks into areas that were not sources of violence before the attack into Afrin, for example.”

Asked how “mechanisms” would work with Turkey in Afrin and Manbij, he said: “That’s exactly what we have to work out. That’s — as you said, we’re going to put them in place. So there’s a commitment now to work them out. We have to put them — we have to draw them up together, and then we have to employ them.“

The aim of the Turkish operation is to “stop attacks and border harassments, indiscriminate shelling of urban areas, harboring, equipping and training of terrorists, suicide bombers and assassins,” according to a fact sheet sent to Fox News from the Turkish Embassy in Washington. Turkey also maintains that “all precautions are taken to avoid collateral damage to the civilian population” in the operation, a claim sharply disputed by Kurdish groups.

At the Munich Security Conference this month, Turkey’s minister of foreign affairs called Operation Olive Branch a “legitimate right (for) self-defense,” adding that “supporting a terrorist organization against another terrorist organization (ISIS) is a big mistake and risking the future of the country,” a reference to the YPG.

Maller, of the Counter Extremism Project, said ISIS has been beaten back, but emphasized that the terror group would likely stage a comeback, and the U.S. will need its Kurdish allies again. “ISIS continues to have a formidable presence” along the Syria-Iraq border and “is capable of striking quickly and often. Also, ISIS continues to successfully radicalize and recruit individuals globally, while inspiring followers to carry out attacks. Over time, it is quite possible that ISIS could again gain strength, as it has done before, should the war in Syria drag on and Iraq’s government remain weak and under the sway of Iran.

“While the absolute number of ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq may have fallen, the group remains dangerous and continues to spread to Africa, Asia and other parts of the world.”

GARBAGE IN DOES NOT YIELD GARBAGE OUT

Retired NYC sanitation worker makes $285K a year from pension

A former Sanitation Department honcho is pulling in an astonishing $285,047-a-year pension — more than twice what he was making on the job, according to newly released data.

And that’s just one of dozens of huge pension payouts revealed in records published Tuesday by the Empire Center for Public Policy— data that lay bare the city’s insanely generous pension system, the government watchdog said.

“Pensions like these are unheard of in the private sector — and deserve the close scrutiny of taxpayers,” said Tim Hoefer, executive director of the Empire Center.

“The long list of six-figure pensioners in the New York City Employees’ Retirement System shows just how great a burden the city has placed on its finances,” Hoefer added.

THE REVOLUTION WILL COME – COUNT ON IT

JORGE RAMOS GUILTY OF TREASON

Jorge Ramos and the Meaning of Treason

 American Renaissance

Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, February 15, 2018

When treason prospers, none dare care it treason, to summarize the old saying. But even to speak of “treason” raises a more fundamental question—treason against what? Under that old English law that some say it is now “racist” to evoke, it was once treason to “imagine” the death of the king, queen, or heir. For a wife to murder her husband was “petty treason.” Under almost every system, treason is punishable by death because it endangers not just citizens, but the very principles of authority and responsibility on which society rests. Thus, what a society considers “treason” tells us what that society values.

It’s therefore interesting that Jorge Ramos, the Mexican-born Spanish-language news anchor, is accusing Republicans of wanting the so-called “Dreamers” to commit something like treason.

What Republicans are asking from the Dreamers is like treason. When they say they want to end “chain migration”, they are telling them: we’ll legalize you but I’ll deport your parents and siblings. When someone mistreats your parents, you’ll remember it all your life.

Of course, what Republicans are asking of the “Dreamers” is to put their loyalty to this country—the country we are constantly (and inaccurately) told is the “only country they have ever known”—over the interests of foreigners. This is, after all, what any country would ask of those who want to immigrate. And yet Mr. Ramos’s reaction is an implicit admission that the propaganda line being used to argue for amnesty—that “Dreamers” are simply undocumented Americans—is false. To accuse Mr. Ramos and his ideological allies of “dual loyalty” would be to understate the case; he appears to have little loyalty to the United States at all.

“I finally recognized that I cannot be defined by one country. I am from both countries,” Mr. Ramos said of his decision not to return to Mexico despite dual citizenship. But this does not make him American. His continued attachment to Mexico means he has broken the oath he took to become a U.S. citizen, in which he swore, “I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore have been a subject or citizen” and will “bear true faith and allegiance” to the United States.

The blue-eyed Mr. Ramos could easily be considered white—what Steve Sailer calls a “Conquistador-American.” However, he prefers to serve as a tribune for Hispanics, including the millions of non-white indigenous Latin Americans who are clumsily characterized as his fellow Hispanics. Mr. Ramos describes his television network as “pro-immigrant,” and speaks openly of his goal of increasing the power of his ethnic community in all aspects of American life. He is suspicious of the whites who built the society he credits with giving him “complete freedom of expression.” In his documentary, “Hate Rising,” he is incensed when those of us who are not dual citizens oppose the transformation of our country through mass immigration. He has also said that no journalist should maintain neutrality when reporting on Donald Trump.

Yet Mr. Ramos is fundamentally right when he complains that the United States is asking Hispanics to declare loyalty to law rather than to their blood and kin. Law is an abstraction, just like American citizenship, as Mr. Ramos’s indifferent attitude towards this country shows. Mr. Ramos puts ethnic identity above country, or, more accurately, above thiscountry. This is natural—but it is hypocritical for him to be outraged by European-Americans who see so-called “Dreamers” as alien occupiers.

Mr. Ramos’s own, stated position justifies that outrage. He says that no self-respecting Hispanic can permit immigration restrictions that could keep relatives out of this country.

A key to understand the Dreamers is that they don’t want to be legalized if that means that their parents and siblings could be deported. That’s why they want a clean Dream act. Yes, they’re generous and they’ll fight until the end.

This is a strong argument for a stopping immigration completely. Under Mr. Ramos’s logic, letting in one foreigner obligates us to let in his entire extended family. If blood loyalty requires that Hispanics put family immigration over respect for American law, each new Hispanic immigrant is essentially a traitor in waiting. If loyalty to La Raza is treason to America, we should not let in even one more Hispanic.

Mr. Ramos’s conception of blood loyalty is an interesting counterpoint to recent comments of the prospective Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Recently, she said she was proud that her six-year-old had wished on his birthday that he had brown skin and brown eyes like his best friend who is Guatemalan. She is clearly not concerned about an influx of Third Worlders.

At the same time, we get accusations of “treason” against President Trump and his family for supposed “collusion” with Russia. No evidence of such collusion has yet been produced, and as President Trump is increasing the size of the military, killing Russians in Syria, and generally continuing the anti-Russian position of American foreign policy, our Commander-in-Chief is hardly a Putin “puppet.” The vastly larger subversive efforts of China, whose entire society was recently described as a “threat” by the director of the FBI, pass all but unnoticed by the American media, as are Mexico’s clear efforts to influence American policy.

The Left and La Raza activists like Mr. Ramos seem to have no concern for the founding stock of the United States. The country appears to be nothing more than a vehicle for realizing their ambitions. Nancy Pelosi and her like do not seem to care whether people who look like them become a minority. As for Mr. Ramos, there is a frank element of conquest involved, as Mr. Ramos anticipates the United States becoming a Hispanic nation. In both cases, the core European-American population appears to be either an afterthought or an obstacle.

It’s only American conservatives who want to pretend there is no link between race and nation. For example, one Ken Oliver at Newsbusters faulted Jorge Ramos and Jared Taylor for “identity politics gone mad” which “only serves to divide Americans.” “In Jared Taylor’s America, as a white man he evidently cannot be adequately represented by a non-white,” he wrote, “nor in Jorge Ramos’s America can Ramos be adequately politically represented by a non-Hispanic.”

Yet these “Americans” Mr. Oliver posits are largely a fiction. Most Americans throughout this country’s history would have taken the link between American and white identity for granted. The American conservatives able to imagine a deracinated American identity are, like Mr. Oliver, almost all white. But many of the non-whites who are rapidly forming the new American majority prize their racial identity above any “American” identity, and it is hard to fault them for doing so.

In a real nation, there is no distinction between “my country” and “my people.” What remains of authentic American patriotism trades on the nostalgia from the time in American history when this was true. Leftists instinctively know this, which is why many denounce expressions of civic nationalism as “white nationalism.” Mr. Ramos also appears to feel that loyalty to America is treason to his fellow Hispanics.

For European-Americans—at least for those who can see what is at stake—the calculation is different. Loyalty to America means loyalty to whites. As the Founding Fathers understood, it means loyalty “to ourselves and to our posterity.” And it means calling advocacy for open borders what it is: a deliberate sacrifice of this country for the benefit of foreigners. As Peter Brimelow has said, the response to the accusation of racism is the charge of treason. Mr. Ramos’s own comments show this charge is accurate. He can be loyal to his fellow Hispanics or loyal to his citizenship oath, but not both. If he wants to be a champion of what he regards as his people, he can do it as an honest man in his own country, instead of subverting ours.

HISTORY OF MEXICO – THE SPANISH CONQUEST – A KILLING MACHINE

READ BELOW THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT NEED  TO BE LECTURED ABOUT MORALS BY ANY MEXICAN OFFICIAL, NOT TODAY, NOT TOMORROW, NOT EVER.

Prior to the Spanish Conquistadors conquering Mexico the country was under the hegemony of the Aztec empire. The Aztec of Central Mexico built a tributary empire covering most of central Mexico. The Aztec were noted for practicing human sacrifice on a large scale. Along with this practice, they avoided killing enemies on the battlefield. Their warring casualty rate was far lower than that of their Spanish counterparts, whose principal objective was immediate slaughter during battle. This distinct Mesoamerican cultural tradition of human sacrifice ended with the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. Over the next centuries Mexican indigenous cultures were gradually subjected to Spanish colonial rule. One could say that the Spanish were ruthless killas. 

The Spanish first learned of Mexico during the Juan de Grijalva expedition of 1518.  The Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire began in February 1519 when Hernán Cortés arrived at the port in Veracruz with 500 conquistadores. After taking control of that city, he moved on to the Aztec capital. In his search for gold and other riches, Cortés decided to invade and conquer the Aztec empire.

When the Spaniards arrived, the ruler of the Aztec empire was Moctezuma II, who was later killed. His successor and brother Cuitláhuac took control of the Aztec empire, but was among the first to fall from the first smallpox epidemic in the area a short time later. Unintentionally introduced by Spanish conquerors, among whom smallpox was endemic, the infectious disease ravaged Mesoamerica in the 1520s. It killed more than 3 million natives as they had no immunity. Other sources, however, mentioned that the death toll of the Aztecs might have reached 15 million (out of a population of less than 30 million) although such a high number conflicts with the 350,000 Aztecs who ruled an empire of 5 million or 10 million. Severely weakened, the Aztec empire was easily defeated by Cortés and his forces on his second return with the help of state of Tlaxcala whose population estimate was 300,000. The native population declined 80–90% by 1600 to 1–2.5 million. Any population estimate of pre-Columbian Mexico is bound to be a guess but 8–12 million is often suggested for the area encompassed by the modern nation.

The deaths caused by smallpox are believed to have triggered a rapid growth of Christianity in Mexico and the Americas. At first, the Aztecs believed the epidemic was a punishment from an angry god, but they later accepted their fate and no longer resisted the Spanish rule. Many of the surviving Aztecs believed that smallpox could be credited to the superiority of the Christian god, which resulted in their acceptance of Catholicism and yielding to the Spanish rule throughout Mexico.

The territory became part of the Spanish Empire under the name of New SpainMexico City was systematically rebuilt by Cortés following the Fall of Tenochtitlan in 1521. Much of the identity, traditions and architecture of Mexico developed during the 300-year colonial period. The capture of Tenochtitlan and refounding of Mexico City in 1521, marked the beginning of a 300-year-long colonial era during which Mexico was known as Nueva España (New Spain). The Kingdom of New Spain was created from the remnants of the Aztec hegemonic empire. Subsequent enlargements, such as the conquest of the Tarascan state, resulted in the creation of the Viceroyalty of New Spain in 1535. The Viceroyalty at its greatest extent included the territories of modern Mexico, Central America as far south as Costa Rica, and the western United States. The territorial evolution of Mexico after independence, noting the secession of Central America (purple), Chiapas annexed from Guatemala (blue), losses to the US (red, white and orange) and the reannexation of the Republic of Yucatan (red).

The indigenous population stabilized around one to one and a half million individuals in the 17th century from the most commonly accepted five to ten million pre-contact population. The population decline was primarily the result of communicable diseases (particularly small pox) introduced during the Columbian Exchange. During the three hundred years of the colonial era, Mexico received some 400,000 to half a million Europeans, 200,000 to 250,000 Africans and 40,000 to 120,000 Asians. The 18th century saw a great increase in the percentage of mestizos (The Penguin Atlas of World Population History.

Agustín de Iturbide became constitutional emperor of the First Mexican Empire in 1822. A revolt against him in 1823 established the United Mexican States. In 1824, a Republican Constitution was drafted and Guadalupe Victoria became the first president of the newly born country. In 1829 president Guerrero abolished slavery. The first decades of the post-independence period were marked by economic instability, which led to the Pastry War in 1836. There was constant strife between liberales, supporters of a federal form of government, and conservadores, who proposed a hierarchical form of government.

During this period, the frontier borderlands to the north became quite isolated from the government in Mexico City, and its monopolistic economic policies caused suffering. With limited trade, the people had difficulty meeting tax payments and resented the central government’s actions in collecting customs. Resentment built up from California to Texas. Both the mission system and the presidios had collapsed after the Spanish withdrew from the colony, causing great disruption especially in Alta California and New Mexico. The people in the borderlands had to raise local militias to protect themselves from hostile Native Americans. These areas developed in different directions from the center of the country.

Wanting to stabilize and develop the frontier, Mexico encouraged immigration into present-day Texas, as they were unable to persuade people from central Mexico to move into those areas.They allowed for religious freedom for the new settlers, who were primarily Protestant English speakers from the United States. Within several years, the Anglos far outnumbered the Tejano in the area. Itinerant traders traveled through the area, working by free market principles. The Tejano grew more separate from the government and due to its neglect, many supported the idea of independence and joined movements to that end, collaborating with the English-speaking Americans.

General Antonio López de Santa Anna, a centralist and two-time dictator, approved the Siete Leyes in 1836, a radical amendment that institutionalized the centralized form of government. When he suspended the 1824 Constitution, civil war spread across the country. Three new governments declared independence: the Republic of Texas, the Republic of the Rio Grande and the Republic of Yucatán.

Second Republic and Second Empire (1846–1867)

Benito Juárez, 26th President of Mexico

The 1846 United States annexation of the Republic of Texas and subsequent American military incursion into territory that was part of Coahuila (also claimed by Texas) instigated the Mexican–American War. The war was settled in 1848 via the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Mexico was forced to give up more than one-third of its land to the U.S., including Alta CaliforniaSanta Fe de Nuevo México and the territory claimed by Texas. A much smaller transfer of territory in what is today southern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico—known as the Gadsden Purchase—occurred in 1854.

The Caste War of Yucatán, the Maya uprising that began in 1847, was one of the most successful modern Native American revolts. Maya rebels, or Cruzob, maintained relatively independent enclaves in the peninsula until the 1930s.

So it be that the HISTORY OF MEXICO is one of conquest and revolt. The Spanish were red blooded killers, guilty today of mass murder and plunder. Their philosophy of conquest seeks no end. They are intent on  Spanishizing the Estados Unidos. Until they conquer America their appetite will not be satisfied.

When Mexican President’s lectures us it is necessary to turn the tables on their Spanish Ancestor killing machine. Americans must and will stand up to this Spanish onslaught. The Latino/Hispanic mind knows no end, seeking to monopolize public opinion and blame White Americans for their lot in life. The European Caucasian is in no way responsible for their misery. Time to stand up and throw their violent colonial history back in their face.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN EAGER FOR A THREE COURSE MEAL OF LEAD

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned the Syrian regime against entering Afrin province in northern Syria. Syrian State Media reported that Syrian “popular forces” would enter Afrin to support the “Steadfastness of their people in the face of aggression carried out by the forces of the Turkish regime.” The potential conflict between Turkey and Syria comes a month after Turkey launched a major offensive into northern Syria aimed at removing what it called “terrorists” of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) from its border. The US has continually urged restraint and said Ankara’s operation is a distraction from the war on Islamic State.

On the face of the new revelations this is imperceivable that a NATO member (Turkey) is warning the United States supported troops that they Turkey will use all of the means necessary to bomb, kill and remove our troops from Afrin. Afriin is located in a mountainous region of northwest Syria next to the border with Turkey. Since 2012 it has mostly been cut-off from the vicious civil war in Syria, a Kurdish canton controlled by the YPG. Since 2015 the YPG has partnered with the US-led coalition in eastern Syria, where it makes up part of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The SDF liberated Raqqa from ISIS and are key to helping stabilize eastern Syria, the US says.

In January 2018 Ankara accused the US of training a “terror army” in eastern Syria and launched its operation against Afrin using Tanks, airplanes and more than 10,000 Syrian rebel allies. The bottom line here is one that Turkey will regret; bombing our troops who are working with the YPG Kurds will result in the Mother of all confrontations. Turkey will regret the power of the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood Erdogan will soon have to make a choice, back down or eat lead. We venture the latter – a suicide wish will come true.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said Turkey would face the “appropriate response” if it follows through on a threat to widen its assault against a Syrian Kurdish militia all the way to the border with Iraq.

Senior SDF official Redur Xelil was responding to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s threat to sweep militants from the length of Turkey’s Syrian frontier. “When he tries to widen his battle, he will be met by the appropriate response,” Xelil told Reuters in an interview in the town of Amuda in northern Syria.

 Previously we reported on the confrontation that will occur in Afrin:

The Turkish offensive in northwest Syria’s Afrin region against the Kurdish YPG militia has opened a new front in the multi-sided Syrian civil war and strained ties with NATO ally Washington.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday, January 26, Turkish forces would sweep Kurdish fighters from the Syrian border and could push all the way east to the frontier with Iraq — a move which risks a possible confrontation with US forces allied to the Kurds.

 The Turkish offensive in northwest Syria’s Afrin region against the Kurdish YPG militia has opened a new front in the multi-sided Syrian civil war and strained ties with NATO ally Washington.

Since the start of the incursion, dubbed “Operation Olive Branch” by Ankara, Erdogan has said Turkish forces would push east towards the town of Manbij, potentially putting them in confrontation with US troops deployed there.

“Operation Olive Branch will continue until it reaches its goals. We will rid Manbij of terrorists, as it was promised to us, and our battles will continue until no terrorist is left until our border with Iraq,” Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.

A senior official in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias of which the YPG is the strongest, said any wider Turkish assault would face “the appropriate response.

The Kurdish-led autonomous administration that runs Afrin urged the Syrian government on Thursday to defend its border with Turkey despite Damascus’ stance against Kurdish autonomy.

The Syrian government has said it is ready to target Turkish warplanes in its airspace, but has not intervened so far. It suspects the Kurds of wanting independence in the long-run.

Erdogan demands we hand over Fetthulah Gulen

Previously, we reported that Turkey has closed the airspace above, and suspended all US-led air missions out of the giant Incirlik airbase (which houses some 50 US nuclear bombs), we said that there is speculation the “airbase may be held “hostage” by Ankara as a bargaining chip ahead of demands for the extradition of Erdogan’s arch enemy, Fethullah Gulen, currently a resident of the state of Pennsylvania.” A few hours later this was partially validated when during a televised speech, Turkish President Erdogan called on the United States to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Muslim cleric he accuses of being behind Turkey’s failed coup attempt. Source: ZeroHedge

THE FBI (FAKE BUREAU INVOLVED) IN COVER-UP – OUT TO GET TRUMP AT ALL COSTS

We don’t use the word Jerk lightly, but with 13 Russians indicted, we must plaster the Jerk moniker on the FBI.  Can you imagine charging a bunch of Russian apparatchiks caught posting propaganda on You Tube and Facebook. This must be some type of joke are they hallucinating? Isn’t that what we do to Communist countries – post fake news?

Propaganda is the bread and butter, the means to bring down governments – it’s done all of the time. Fake news is the coin of the realm.  CNN, ABC and NBC weren’t charged. Isn’t that curious. Doesn’t it seem odd that this Russian thing has gone on for a year and a half; no smoking Trump gun; no collusion by him, but plenty of smoking guns in the hands of Uranium Clinton.

President Trump and congressional Republicans have raised questions about whether top officials in the FBI, particularly ones working on the Russia investigation, were unfairly biased against him. Those concerns were heightened by the Strzok-Page text messages, wherein the agents discussed, among other things, an “insurance policy” to keep Trump out of the White House.

Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Susan Rice, Lois Lerner, Koskinen, Sheryl Mills, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Huma Abeden, Patrick Kennedy, Strzok, Page and President Obama are guilty of a multitude of crimes. Where are the indictments? Why no Democrats? This smells of a setup from the git-go. Why no affidavits, why no ‘c’ drives, why no taped interviews, why no witnesses and why no i-phones?

There is only one way to clean up this mess. Fire Mueller, fire Sessions and bring in Chris Christy. They have what it takes to do the job without a political agenda. Let the chips fall where they may.

CHRISTOPHER WRAY HEADS THE FBI’S MOST WANTED LIST

Another tragedy perpetrated by the FBI. Yes, those who are paid to protect us failed miserably to do their job. They are accessory to murder one.  The last time we looked the  “I” in FBI means (click)investigate. It does not mean sleep on the job – but they did and 17 innocents are dead. We demand responsibility, accountability and those who shirked their job brought up on murder charges. We want justice NOW.

MASSACRE AT VIRGINIA TECH

Here is some background information about the shootings at Virginia Tech in April 2007, the second deadliest shooting rampage in US history. Twenty-three year old Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people on the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, before taking his own life.

Facts:
Seung-Hui Cho
 was a senior at Virginia Tech, majoring in English. He was born in South Korea in 1984 and became a permanent US resident in 1992.

Cho had previously been diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder. During much of his middle school and high school years, he received therapy and special education support. After graduating from high school, Cho enrolled at Virginia Tech. Because of federal privacy laws, Virginia Tech was unaware of Cho’s previous diagnosis or the accommodations he had been granted at school. In 2005, Cho was accused of stalking two female students. After an investigation, a Virginia special justice declared Cho mentally ill and ordered him to attend treatment; however, because he was not institutionalized, he was still allowed to purchase guns.

The shooting prompted the state of Virginia to close legal loopholes that had previously allowed individuals adjudicated as mentally unsound to purchase handguns without detection by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). It also led to passage of the only major federal gun control measure in the U.S. since the year 1994. The law strengthening the NICS was signed by President George W. Bush on January 5, 2008.  Make no mistake about it, these mass shooters are mentally deranged who manifested dangerous behavior before committing their crimes. Many were known to law enforcement and also in the case of Sandy Hook, harbored by their parents.

So where do we stand today? Mentally deranged individuals are still able to purchase guns. Why? Because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS and law enforcements failure to do their job. 

The FBI, which has been a frequent target of criticism from the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers, now faces additional scrutiny after admitting Friday that it botched a tip that could have averted Wednesday’s massacre in Parkland, Fla.

America’s top law enforcement agency said it failed to act on information that alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz had a “desire to kill people,” had written a series of alarming social media posts and had access to a gun.

The FBI Director needs to resign: http://bit.ly/2o5gJF7 

The Libtards ( a contemptuous term for a person with left-wing political views). will never admit to the truth, the facts indicate that the shooter’s mental illness is the direct cause of these killings. However, those rabid dog politicians continue to blame the guns.

Reality check: These pandering Democrats suffer a mental illness all their own; suffering from the greatest disease know to man, “socialism.” It is incurable, not treatable and we hope fatal to those wade deep in their own excrement.

DID WE HEAR THE WORD INFLATION YESTERDAY? AMERICANS GO FOR THE GOLD NOT ONLY IN SOUTH KOREA

They were scrambling like bees assaulted with a can of RAID. We are talking about the big monetary spenders who believe that the best way to spur the economy was to print, print and print more. The word out yesterday on the inflation front was hard to swallow; inflation up a half percent for the month – 6% at a yearly rate. Mortgage rates jumping higher than Sean White on the halfpipe as he grabbed the gold. This is symbolism at its finest, winners don’t receive a tin medal, no zinc metal, no copper metal; gold is what they are after. Finally, the pump is catching up with them, with inflation on the rise, the Fed will be forced to turn on the screws.

Consumer prices jump much more than forecast, sparking inflation fears

  • The Consumer Price Index, a key indicator of inflation trends, jumped 0.5 percent in January, well above market expectations.
  • Markets reacted sharply to the news, with stocks sliding and government bond yields rising.
  • The Fed is watching inflation closely, so the report could add fuel to interest rate hikes.

Gold is once again on the rise. The pundits can’t nor are they willing to understand the attraction to gold;  steadfast has it been in an island of global turmoil. Uncertain on what will happen have caused many to insure themselves with the metal.

What have the naysayers missed? One wonders why they even mention gold at all. And the volcanic rise of Trump, Sanders and Carson, not to mention Carly Fiorina who would have thought. The pundits failed to miss their rise too. Americans are fed up with the Boehners, McConnells, Reids, Pelosis, Clintons and Bushes of the world. They are plain old ready for a revolution. teapartylogoredThe boxes of tea in our logo have names on them, Democrats, The Fed, Public Unions, Big Government and entitlements. Yes, Americans are FED UP with do good politicians who only care about getting reelected.

We tell you what, America and the world is in turmoil. The socialists thugs running the paper printing scam are now worried about the next three years, we would not be surprised if some of them commit suicide. They are desperate to find a solution when none except gold exists. They have dug their own grave and now will reap the benefit of disastrous monetary policies over the past 45 years.

PAPER TIGERS – IN GOLD WE TRUST –

During the past six months we have tried to educate the sceptics that the United States dollar is not worth the paper it is printed on.  The likes of Goldman-Sachs (with a name like Goldman, why would they be bearish on Gold – very confusing to us) forecast a $1000 ounce of gold, others saw an implosion to $500, not so fast says the market. When Goldman speaks people listen or do they? Today gold mounted a robust rally closing over $50 higher as it continues to close in on $1250 per ounce. In the last 30 days gold was as good as gold rising over $150.

To the naysayers out there, look what is happening in the world; in one word it is defined as TURMOIL. Globally people have lost confidence in their leaders – why do you thing Trump is doing so well and on the other side, Hillary the Liar, her momentum stopped dead in New Hampshire. Oh don’t worry she says, we are going South and the FBI, me worry. A little kick-ass by that Sanders fellow in the Palmetto State may be in the cards. Talking about the cards, Hillary then heads for Nevada – Ok Harry Reid is going to be shoveling the manure for Hillary, but what good will that do. Sanders may have a trick or two up his sleeve.

Anyway you look at it, oil tanking, zero interest rates and in some cases negative rates, one would think boom times are here. The average family is saving at least $1000 a year on gas, plus oil and natural gas to heat the abode. Doesn’t seem they are too anxious to spend the savings though. Europe on edge, suicide bombers perfecting their craft, Syria going down in flames. Latin America’s bargain with the devil is not working out so well; just ask the people in Venezuela. And we forgot to mention the dictator in North Korea, shooting his mouth off again. Guess he figures that do to his lack of manhood he would shoot off a missile. Lot of good that did.

Keep your hopes up, things can only get better.  The higher gold goes the worse it will be for the status quo. Remember, the Central Banks were set up by politicians to print money ostensibly to feed their minions, this became the loop for reelection; it continues today. Once the printing stops, the true revolution begins, the free-loaders will no longer be in control, but the men/women of conscience and integrity will once again rule. Work will be rewarded not the other way around.

TIME FOR SESSION TO UP HIS GAME – RICO INDICTMENT

This below post was authored in August 2015, now Clinton criminal enterprise, which reached the highest levels of government, continues with no end. The resulting delay has caused crimes to go unpunished. Sessions must act now or be replaced. No one is above the law. What is he waiting for?

PROSECUTE THE HILLARY CLINTON CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE UNDER RICO

Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations Act (Rico)A federal law, passed in 1970, that allows prosecution and civil penalties for certain acts (including illegal gambling, bribery, kidnapping, murder, and money laundering) performed as part of an ongoing criminal enterpriseRICO has been used to prosecute members of the mafia, the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, and Operation Rescue, an anti-abortion group, among others.

 

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically onracketeering, and it allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they orderedothers to door assisted them, closing a perceived loophole that allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because he did not actually commit the crime personally

TAKING THE KNIFE TO DISCRETIONARY PROGRAMS

They will cry bloody murder let them. These programs are staffed by liberal progressive ideologues whose agenda is to sabotage the Trump agenda. Cutting the bureaucracy and programs that are in support of Big Government need to die.

The White House says it is calling for a total $48.4 billion in reduced spending on discretionary programs. Here are some of the major programs that would be slashed under the president’s budget, along with their current cost—and the amount that would be saved by individual Americans on a per-person basis:
