Fred Kaplan’s article is proof that progressives are idiots. It’s Kaplan’s opinion that Mike Pompeo is the worst secretary of state in our nation’s history. Kaplan wrote “Through his two years and nine months as the nation’s top diplomat, Pompeo has said or done nothing that’s enhanced our security, our values, or even—right or wrong—his administration’s own policies.”

The only accomplishments that Mike Pompeo had as Secretary of State was moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, negotiate (as part of a team) the Abraham Accords with 5 Arab nations, box Iran in after the disastrous JCPOA that John Kerry capitulated on, held a legitimate red line with Syria and helping take out Qassim Soleimani, the leader of the IRGC. That’s unless you want to give him partial credit for the USMCA and Phase I trade deal with China and playing an integral role in de-escalating tensions between North Korea and the other Pacific Rim nations.

Like Trump, Pompeo ceaselessly inveighed against the Iran nuclear deal; it is no coincidence that Trump pulled out of the deal and re-imposed sanctions against the Islamic Republic on May 8, 2018, just 12 days after Pompeo was sworn in as secretary. (His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, had advised Trump to stay in the deal.) Pompeo claimed, with swaggering confidence, that the sanctions would compel Tehran back to negotiate a “better” nuclear deal—or possibly force a collapse of the regime. Fast forward to today: Iran’s economy is a wreck, but the regime survives, its hardline factions are stronger than before, and its reactors are closer than ever to churning out an atomic bomb. (President-elect Joe Biden wants to restart the nuclear deal, but Iran’s technological progress and the stiffening of its politics will make this harder to accomplish.)

Thanks to John Kerry’s talks with the Iranians after leaving office, Iran held out in hopes of a Biden administration. The bad news for Biden is that the Arab nations that’ve signed onto the Abraham Accords with Israel hate Iran. The UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan, along with nations like Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Kuwait will balk at the US rejoining the JCPOA. They were driven into the Abraham Accords with Israel because of Kerry’s coziness with Iran. Here’s the Abraham Accords Declaration:

President Trump and Mike Pompeo have a lengthy list of foreign policy accomplishments. By contrast, the Obama-Biden administrations has a lengthy list of foreign policy failures.

Susan Page’s sloppy impeachment reporting is worthy of criticism. That’s especially true in light of the fact that John Sullivan, a known left-wing agitator, “can allegedly be heard egging on protesters in video he provided to the FBI, according to a federal criminal complaint. He has also shared the video to his YouTube and Twitter accounts under the pseudonym Jayden X.”

Page’s reporting is indisputably sloppy. Now that Sullivan “was charged Thursday in federal court in Washington after being arrested by the FBI”, it’s safe to say that Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment of President Trump is sloppier than the first impeachment of President Trump. This video lays things out pretty precisely:

That video does a far more accurate job than Ms. Page did. This paragraph from Ms. Page’s article is particularly sloppy in light of the new information:

The storming of the Capitol last week by a mob egged on by the president has brought a rapid judgment not only from the lawmakers whose lives were threatened on that violent day but also from other Americans who bore witness. The nation’s broader culture – from business leaders and bankers to coaches and golf pros and social media platforms – has delivered an unprecedented series of rebukes as well.

Now that we know that left-wing agitators infiltrated the crowd, it’s time to re-examine the theory that this was the work of an angry right-wing mob. This should dispel that myth:

Sullivan also allegedly told Foulger that he had been in the Capitol during the riot, entering through a broken window while wearing a ballistic vest. As protesters climbed over a wall near the Capitol entrance, he allegedly exclaimed in the video, “You guys are f—— savage. Let’s go!”

“There are so many people,” Sullivan’s voice can be heard saying as the camera shows a large group of people making its way toward the building. “Let’s go. This s— is ours! F– yeah. I can’t believe this is reality. We accomplished this s—,” he said at another point “We did this together. F— yeah! We are all a part of this history.”

Thank God we know that President Trump got this mob riled up. At least, that’s the media mob’s storyline. Finally, there’s this:

“There’s this narrative going around right now that Antifa was the people there causing the riots, causing the tension, they were the only people breaking into the Capitol, and I wanted to be able to tell a part of history and show that that was anything but the case,” John Sullivan, the founder of Utah-based Insurgence USA, told Fox News Thursday.

Insurgence USA describes itself as “the revolution.” It began protesting racial injustice in policing last year following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

In August 2020 remarks to a small crowd at a Washington, D.C., intersection, Sullivan pointed to the nearby White House and unleashed a torrent of violent rhetoric. “We … about to burn this s— down,” he said. “We gotta … rip Trump right out of that office right there,” he continued, adding, “We ain’t about … waiting until the next election.” He then led the crowd in a chant of, “It’s time for revolution.”

That confirms that this riot wasn’t President Trump’s making. This shames Nancy Pelosi’s “snap impeachment.” It’s just a replay of the Nick Sandman/Covington Catholic story where the media mob assigned blame, then were forced to retract their stories when the full video came out.

Based on this article, it’s reasonable to question whether the Capitol Hill riot was pre-planned. It’s apparent that this wasn’t a spontaneous reaction.

According to the article, “Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.” That fits with what President Trump said at the Save America rally. At that rally, President Trump said “We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country.”

President Trump didn’t incite insurrection just like Benghazi wasn’t a spontaneous uprising about a video. Benghazi was pre-planned just like the Capitol Hill riot. That means that Impeachment 2.0 is just as illegitimate as the first impeachment. At the end of this video, Nancy Pelosi announced that 232 people voted for impeachent:

That means that:

  1. every Democrat voted for impeachment;
  2. every Democrat voted without hearing a single witness;
  3. every Democrat voted for impeachment because they hate President Trump;
  4. every Democrat voted for impeachment without the House conducting an investigation.

Here’s hoping that Democrats get totally obliterated in the 2022 midterm elections. Here’s hoping that those 10 back-stabbing Republicans lose their primaries, too. Good riddance to those back-stabbers.

Anyone that thinks that Impeachment 2.0 is serious isn’t paying attention. Big Tech’s silencing of Parler is the start of the Far-Left’s authoritarian agenda. Glenn Greenwald’s reporting is frightening.

Throughout the article, he warns of the Far-Left’s real agenda. Nowhere does it come through clearer than when he writes “The liberal New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg pronounced herself ‘disturbed by just how awesome [tech giants’] power is’ and added that ‘it’s dangerous to have a handful of callow young tech titans in charge of who has a megaphone and who does not.’ She nonetheless praised these ‘young tech titans’ for using their ‘dangerous’ power to ban Trump and destroy Parler. In other words, liberals like Goldberg are concerned only that Silicon Valley censorship powers might one day be used against people like them, but are perfectly happy as long as it is their adversaries being de-platformed and silenced (Facebook and other platforms have for years banned marginalized people like Palestinians at Israel’s behest, but that is of no concern to U.S. liberals).”

Then he wrote this:

That is because the dominant strain of American liberalism is not economic socialism but political authoritarianism. Liberals now want to use the force of corporate power to silence those with different ideologies. They are eager for tech monopolies not just to ban accounts they dislike but to remove entire platforms from the internet. They want to imprison people they believe helped their party lose elections, such as Julian Assange, even if it means creating precedents to criminalize journalism.

Paul Wellstone and Hubert Humphrey would be upset. They’d be angry, too, because today’s Democrats have become corporatists and fascists. Wellstone’s love of debate and Humphrey’s libertarianism has disappeared.
This is chilling:

In November, Joe Biden called for unity throughout the nation. Conservatives didn’t take him seriously at the time. Conservatives were proven right that Democrats didn’t really want unity when Nancy Pelosi decided to impeach President Trump with just 8 days left in President Trump’s term in office.

If Democrats impeach President Trump again, it shouldn’t be taken seriously. It shouldn’t be taken seriously because:

  1. Democrats wouldn’t hold impeachment hearings.
  2. Democrats wouldn’t call a single witness.
  3. Democrats haven’t identified a high crime that President Trump has committed.
  4. Democrats would vote on a single article of impeachment in the middle of the night a week before the inauguration.

With only eight days remaining in President Trump’s term, the House of Representatives is barrelling toward a second impeachment vote in the coming days as outrage about the president’s role in the storming of the Capitol by his supporters last week continues to reverberate throughout Washington, D.C.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the House will take two major steps toward impeaching Trump, which would make him the only president to be impeached twice. Tuesday evening, the House will vote after 7:30 p.m. on a resolution from Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., calling on Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. That amendment sets up a process by which the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet may declare to Congress that the president “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

The vote likely will not happen until very late Tuesday night.

This isn’t something that I’ll take seriously. Democrats accuse President Trump of inciting violence. Pardon the pun but that’s a trumped up charge on steroids. Nowhere in his speech does President Trump call for violence. He does call for “peacefully” marching up to Capitol Hill to protest the House’s actions. That word “peacefully” douses the Democrats’ inauthentic claims with ice-cold water. You can’t incite violence while peacefully protesting.

Democrat Rep. David Cicilline of RI told CNN this morning that they didn’t need an investigation because everyone saw what happened. That’s true but it’s apparent that Democrats didn’t hear what President Trump heard. Democrats continually insist that President Trump incited violence. Either Democrats are liars or they can’t hear straight. I’m betting that they’re liars.

Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump since the day after the 2016 presidential election. Democrats lost all credibility after this:

Democrats apparently condone threats and intimidation against Republicans but they’re prepared to impeach a president who didn’t incite violence. That’s why I won’t take the Democrats’ impeachment seriously.

In her statement about Wednesday’s riots on Capitol Hill, Minnesota’s Democrat Sen. Tina Smith said “Today’s attacks on the U.S. Capitol and federal buildings strike at the core principle of our democracy, that the people decide who represents them. The seditionists were incited by the most destructive and anti-democratic President in our history. For too long, some political leaders, especially the President, have used their power and position to fuel distrust in our elections with no evidence and no purpose other than to advance their own personal political power. It’s despicable and runs counter to our oath of office, to protect the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic.”

In addition to lying to Minnesotans, Sen. Smith ignores the behavior of President Barack Obama, Speaker Pelosi and then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. First, Sen. Smith told the Democrats’ lie that there was no evidence of election fraud. That’s an outright lie. The courts didn’t deal with the merits of Georgia’s consent decree or the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s rewriting election law. Election laws that aren’t written by state legislatures aren’t valid. Democrats utilized such ‘laws’ to vote. Those votes shouldn’t count.

Next, when Sen. Smith said that President Trump was the most “anti-democratic President in our history”, she didn’t admit that President Obama got most of his things done with his infamous pen and phone. DACA, DAPA and virtually killing the energy industry were done via executive order or regulations put in place after the 2016 election.

Sen. Smith hasn’t admitted that President Obama’s stimulus bill essentially passed on a party line vote or any good-faith negotiating. That’s when President Obama told Eric Cantor that “We won” before shoving the bill through with Pelosi’s and Reid’s help. Obama, Pelosi and Reid weren’t interested in negotiating, just like AOC isn’t interested in negotiating now.

The Democrat Socialists’ intransigence is creating GOP frustration. When that frustration boils over, there will be hell to pay. I wouldn’t want to be a Democrat then. The Democrats’ agenda isn’t popular outside their cult. Obama, Pelosi, Reid and AOC don’t care about negotiating. AOC said so. Today’s Democrats are perfectly comfortable forcing things down people’s throats. Think back to Pelosi’s most famous statement:

Tina Smith is like Obama, Pelosi, Reid and AOC in that she’s willing to overlook the Democrats’ strong-arm tactics. Smith puts ideology above people, too.

Thursday night on Tucker Carlson Tonight, he played a tape from an MLK speech from 1967. In the speech, MLK said “But in the final analysis, riots are the language of the unheard. What has America not heard?” This summer, CNN and MSNBC used that statement as justification for the riots in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and Chicago.

On Wednesday, CNN and MSNBC said that riots were acts of sedition and insurrecton. Let’s watch that snippet of MLK’s speech at Stanford in 1967:

Prior to that famous part of that speech, Martin Luther King Jr. said that “it is as necessary for me to be vigorous in condemning the conditions which cause persons to feel that they must engage in riotous activities as it is for me to condemn riots. I think that America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society that must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots.”

Following that, King said “It has failed to hear the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met.” It’s 53+ years later. Democrats still rely on that plantation to maintain political power. Democrats still haven’t listened to minorities. Democrats don’t listen to blue collar workers, either. When then-candidate Trump said that the forgotten man would be forgotten no more, Rust Belt Democrats and independents rallied to his side.

That’s something that Democrats couldn’t let happen again. That’s why Democrats teamed with Big Tech. Big Tech silenced anything negative about Joe Biden. In return, Biden littered his transition team with people from Big Tech. Now Big Tech is killing their competition. Big Tech just permanently deleted President Trump’s account. Google Play Store has eliminated the Parler app in an attempt to kill Twitter’s competition. That’s corruption in the Democrats’ pursuit of total political power. That’s pathetic.

Unfortunately, it isn’t surprising that Democrat terrorists, aka Antifa, terrorized the Washington, DC home of Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley. Equally unfortunately, it isn’t surprising that the Washington Post had a different perspective on the event. According to the Post, “activists said they had staged a peaceful vigil on Monday night to protest a GOP plan to object to Congress’s certification of the presidential electoral vote this week. On the sidewalk in a Northern Virginia suburb, a group of 15 people chanted while holding candles and signs saying, ‘Protect democracy.'”

This tweet tells a different story:


Now Antifa is changing their story:


This was written by the Washington Post ‘reporter’:

Demonstrators with ShutDownDC, which organized the protest, told The Washington Post that they did not engage in vandalism or even knock on Hawley’s door. A 50-minute video shared by the group shows protesters writing in chalk on the sidewalk, chanting through a megaphone and at one point leaving a copy of the Constitution on Hawley’s doorstep.

“This was not threatening behavior,” said Patrick Young, a ShutDownDC organizer. “This is people engaging in democracy and engaging in civil discourse. … This was a pretty tame and peaceful visit to his house.”

The video speaks for itself. The Washington Post didn’t tell the truth. Period. Full stop.

It’s been clear for months that the statutes pertaining to the governors’ Peacetime Emergency Powers needed reforming. Currently, the authorities get extended if the governor says they’re required and either the House or Senate agrees with the governor.

What’s required is for these authorities to be limited to 30 days initially. If the authorities need to be extended, then both the House and Senate must be required to approve of the extension. In this instance, a Democrat House is protecting a DFL governor. There might be a time when an extension is required. I’m not disputing that. What I’m disputing is the situation that we’re currently in. The current situation includes the governor unilaterally shutting down cafes and restaurants:

Five more Minnesota restaurants have been issued cease-and-desist orders and license suspension notices from the Minnesota Department of Health. A press release from the MDH claims Long Pine Store in Pine River was observed on Dec. 18 serving beverages in person, and Jamieson’s on Main in Oslo was found serving food for in-person dining on Dec. 21.

Investigators determined “that the facilities had violated executive orders designed to protect their employees, customers, and communities from the COVID-19 pandemic.” The governor’s Executive Order 20-99 prohibits restaurants and bars from offering dine-in options. Cease-and-desist orders were issued to both within the last week, as well as notices of “license suspension.” The news release does not specify which licenses MDH plans on suspending.

Gov. Walz unilaterally decided to shut these restaurants down. He didn’t consult with the legislature. He didn’t seek testimony from the restaurateurs or their worker. He just issued EO-99. He didn’t even talk with these owners.

The DFL is complicit in this by extending the not-that-limited DFL lockdown by not ending Gov. Walz’s shutdown. That means that the DFL, from Gov. Walz to Melissa Hortman, own this recession and deficit. This borders on the dictatorial:

The Declaration of Independence emphatically states “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Gov. Walz isn’t issuing these executive orders with the consent of the governed. He’s issuing them because he’s trying to look like he’s doing something while the ship sinks. Yes, the ship is sinking under his watch. Life savings have been lost. He’s turned a surplus into a significant deficit. He and the DFL are threatening people with crippling fines for trying to make a living. He’s done these things without listening to the people.

That’s the definition of a tyrant!”

Thank God (literally) for William Clark, a high school senior at a charter school in Nevada. He and his mother filed a lawsuit, titled Clark v. State Public Charter School Authority, on the grounds that it’s violating his First and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

According to the lawsuit, “the young plaintiff William Clark and his mother Gabrielle Clark claim their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights were being violated. Students were allegedly told that by refusing to identify with an oppressive group, they were exercising their privilege or underscoring their role as an oppressor.” That’s just part of it. Here’s more information on what’s happening:

William was directed “in class to ‘unlearn‘ the basic Judeo-Christian principles [his mother] imparted to him, and then [the school] retaliated against [him].”

“Some racial, sexual, gender and religious identities, once revealed,”the complaint states, “are officially singled out in the programming as inherently problematic, and assigned pejorative moral attributes by Defendants.”

That’s what real oppression looks like. That isn’t perceived oppression. It’s definitely real.

William Clark was required for assignments the legal complaint says “to reveal his racial, sexual, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities and religious identities,” by his teacher who greeted the students by saying, “Hello my wonderful social justice warriors!” Clark was told the next step would be to determine if parts of his identity “have privilege or oppression attached to it.” Privilege was defined as “the inherent belief in the inferiority of the oppressed group.”

The legal argument the Clarks make is that William is being compelled “to make professions about his racial, sexual, gender and religious identities in verbal class exercises and in graded, written homework assignments which were subject to the scrutiny, interrogation and derogatory labeling of students, teachers and school administrators.” The defendants “are coercing him to accept and affirm politicized and discriminatory principles and statements that he cannot in conscience affirm.”

This is professional brow-beating by unaccountable administrators. That’s otherwise known as indoctrination, which is totally unacceptable. Most importantly, telling people what they’re allowed to practice in terms of religion is what started the writing of the Declaration of Independence, which led directly to the Revolutionary War, then subsequently to the First Amendment. The oppressor isn’t white people. It’s Big Government Democrats! They’re the people governing by fiat. Think Tim Walz, Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, Andrew Cuomo, Lori Lightfoot, Keith Ellison and Eric Garcetti.

How many lives have those Democrats ruined this year? It’s disgusting. These Democrats have ruined lives through school indoctrination, COVID shutdowns and one-size-fits-all COVID policies. Whitmer, Newsom and Pelosi have disgusted people through the Democrats’ do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do fiats. It’s time to throw these jacka$$es out of office the next election.

Most importantly, it’s time to stand up for the Constitution and the First Amendment. If we do that, though, it’s essential that all who trust in the First Amendment stand up together. William Clark has provided the example. I pray that we all stand with him in this fight.
