MUST WE ACCEPT RAPE IN THE MILITARY?

June 19, 2016

rra

Rape in the military and the service academies is not a new phenomenon but clearly the Obama Administration places solving the rape problem way below fighting global warming.

A 2012 Pentagon survey found that approximately 26,000 women and men were sexually assaulted. Of those, only 3,374 cases were reported. The following year a Pentagon report found that 5,061 troops reported cases of assault. The Obama Administration was optimistic that this 50% increase in reports was indicative of victims “growing more comfortable in the system” and not that more cases were occurring. Of these reported, however, only 484 cases went to trial and only 376 resulted in convictions. Ninety percent of the assault VICTIMS were eventually INVOLUNTARILY discharged.

If that does not send a clear message to our Armed Forces Personnel, what would? Another investigation found that only one in five females and one in 15 males in the United States Air Force would report having been sexually assaulted by service members. I don’t want to get side tracked but this is the same reason military personnel are reluctant to report any Fraud, Waste & Abuse! Whistleblowers become targets of investigations and in ALL cases the Whistleblowers are the ones punished. Fraud, Waste & Abuse probably exceeds a trillion dollars in government and won’t stop until the system is totally changed.

With only 1.3 million active duty military personnel, the number rape cases is staggering. The 1.3 million number is somewhere between the populations of San Jose and San Diego California. The Obama Administration is eager to thrust women into all combat roles at the same time they can’t even protect women from rape in the sanctuary of service academies and military posts and bases.

There are only two possibilities that explain the danger women in the military face:
1) Military leaders believe rape is inevitable and nothing can stop it.
2) The best way to stop rape is to punish victims until they grin and take it.

As mentioned above, most victims are kicked out of the military but there are other examples. At some overseas military installations, civilian clothes are never worn by our service members and they never leave the instillation. Most Commanders allow soldiers to wear Physical Training Uniforms while they are off duty. These PT Uniforms are comfortable and work well for physical fitness and leisure activities.

Who wants to wear combat boots and battle dress uniforms to a movie theater or bowling alley on base? At one overseas base this privilege has been suspended because a female soldier was raped while wearing a PT Uniform. In effect, everybody on that base is being punished because of what a rapist did. Does that make sense to you? Our society loves to blame rape victims because they wore provocative clothes or they were drinking and asking for it. At Gene McVay’s Base, a Commander who punishes victims or punishes all personnel for criminal actions of one rapist would be gone faster than you can say “scat!”

I am afraid almost all of the visionary combat commanders who possessed leadership ability are gone and replaced with diversity climate change warriors?

A report published in the New York Times about a survey of women soldiers’ experience in the Iraq War showed a significant incidence of post traumatic stress syndrome resulting from the combination of combat stress and sexual assault. At least 15% of female veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan who visited a Veterans Affairs facility screened positive for military sexual trauma.

Sexual assault is a crime defined as sexual contact upon a person or persons unwillingly, by means of force, physical threat, and abuse of authority which often leads to the victim or victims of the crime fearing to seek justice and the fear is instilled by the same means in which the act was opposed on the person or persons. Sexual Assault includes: Rape; Indecent Assault; Attempts to commit these acts; Witnessing these acts and not reporting them.

According to a 2011 Newsweek report, women are more likely to be assaulted by a fellow soldier than killed in combat. At least 25% of military women have been sexually assaulted, and up to 80% have been sexually harassed.

A substantial increase in reported sexual assaults was reported at the 3 U.S. military academies for the school year 2010 to 2011.

An alleged victim of sexual assault sued the sitting Secretary of Defense and the former Secretary of Defense in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia during 2011. Her claim was that their Department had failed to protect her from her assailant. The Court dismissed the claim on grounds that without Congressional invitation, the courts have little authority to intervene in military affairs because under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, regulation of the military is the responsibility of Congress. Can you understand the depressing hopelessness a young woman victim faces in the United States Armed Forces? She is shunned by military commanders, abandoned by the President and Congress and swept under the carpet by the Federal Courts. This IS NOT what I fought for during 34 years of military service. Is this really who we are?

Once, when one of my men was accused of sexual harassment, a female inspector investigated the case. I was pretty sure he was guilty. After her investigation she came into my office and reported she could not substantiate the allegations. She then added, “That’s what you wanted to hear isn’t it?” I told her I wanted to hear the truth. The Inspector General System in the government in its present form can never work. How many trillion dollars and ruined lives must we see before somebody realizes we must have an independent IG system?

In 2013, two male officers convicted by courts martial of sexual assault were given clemency consisting of having their convictions set aside by respective three-star generals, Lieutenant Generals Craig Franklin of the Third Air Force and Susan Helms of the 14th Air Force.

The clemency cases were followed in May 2013 with the arrest for sexual battery of an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel assigned to the Air Force’s sexual assault prevention program. Public pressure brought Marine General Jim Amos, Air Force General Mark Welsh and the Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley to testify on the subject.

Army General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey was quoted saying, “We’re losing the confidence of the women who serve that we can solve this problem…. That’s a crisis.” Secretary Hagel “ordered the retraining and recertification of U.S. military personnel whose job it is to work to prevent sexual assault and assist the victims”. In Congress, the “Military Justice Improvement Act” was announced. The act “would mean that trained military prosecutors, not commanding officers, would decide whether sexual assault cases should go to trial, according to a group of at least 16 U.S. senators and members of the House of Representatives behind the legislation. It also would mean commanders cannot set aside the conviction of anyone who has been found guilty of sexual assault or downgrade a conviction to a lesser offense”, Representative Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who once worked as a rape crisis counselor, said, “It is clear that something is not working.”

Two years ago there were some new initiatives on curbing retaliation that were aimed at addressing a long-standing problem in the Defense Department — that victims often are blamed for reporting crimes, shunned by colleagues, challenged professionally or depicted as having a mental health disorder and discharged. Anu Bhagwati, a Marine Corps veteran and executive director of the Service Women’s Action Network, said the retaliation issue must be addressed to improve reporting and ensure that victims feel supported and secure. “We’ve seen number of assaults increase and decrease over time — a little bump here, a little drop there — but the retaliation is a clear indication that the climate still isn’t safe for victims,” Bhagwati said. “Retaliation is a crime under the UCMJ. What’s being done with these people? Are they being punished?”

rrrr

All of this reminds me of the smoke and mirrors used by the VA to avoid caring for Veterans and ruling on Combat Disability Claims. The simple truth is that our weakened military under this Congress and this President cannot even defend our military recruiters on military installations or our daughters serving in the Armed Forces anywhere! I could call or visit my U.S. Senators or Representatives but it would be a total waste of time. They are probably giving some Communist group a tour of the Capitol or away on a junket visiting the French Riviera? They will take time to ask me for my vote in a couple of months.

How Bad is the United Nations?

June 16, 2016

Why won’t CNN, Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the New York Times and Washington Post point this out to you? Why is it left to me, an old Agent Orange ravaged former Fighter Pilot and Wing Commander?

Anybody who loves America and was willing to shed blood to defend America and uphold the Constitution would want you to know this information. Is the United Nations a friend of America and Israel? I first visited the United Nations General Assembly Hall 55 years ago as a teenager. If I had known then what I know now, I probably would have vomited on the floor?

According to the United Nations, the most evil country in the world today is Israel. On March 24, 2016, the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) wrapped up its annual meeting in New York by condemning only one country for violating women’s rights anywhere on the planet – Israel, for violating the rights of Palestinian women.

On the same day, the U.N. Human Rights Council concluded its month-long session in Geneva by condemning Israel five times more than any other of the 192 UN member states.

There were five Council resolutions on Israel. One each on the likes of hellish countries like Syria, North Korea and Iran. Libya got an offer of “technical assistance.” And countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia and China were among the 95 percent of states that were never mentioned.

No slander is deemed too vile for the U.N. human rights bodies that routinely listen to highly orchestrated Palestinian versions of the ancient blood libel against the Jews.

Here is an image of the few countries that VOTE WITH THE UNITED STATES in the United Nations. As you can see, most of the 192 UN member states oppose the Unites States. Yes, they bite the hand that has been feeding them since before I first set foot in the Cesspool in New York. Have you ever wondered why our political leaders cling to this vile organization? I guess it is the politically correct thing to do like embracing ISIS terrorists posing as Syrian refugees?

This next image is interesting to me and may be interesting to you once explained. You see, the Muslim countries all vote against us but they seem to like us more during Barack Obama’s Administration. Was it Obama’s bowing down to Muslim kings or what? I know the image says Arab countries but I don’t think there is an Arab alive who is not a Muslim.

Did you notice Kuwait was voting against us 90% or more before Obama and against us about 66% of the time during Obama?  Do you remember we liberated Kuwait from their Muslim neighbor?

The following quote by Arthur Schlessinger Jr. is included here to provide prospective. He was an American historian, social critic, and public intellectual. Much of Schlesinger’s work explored the history of 20th-century American liberalism. In the 1952 and 1956 presidential campaigns, he was a primary speechwriter and adviser to the Democratic presidential nominee. He served as special assistant and “court historian” to President Kennedy from 1961 to 1963. He wrote a detailed account of the Kennedy administration, from the 1960 presidential campaign to the president’s state funeral, titled A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House, which won the 1966 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography. He later popularized the term “imperial presidency” during the Nixon administration book of the same name.

“We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money,” warned Arthur Schlesinger Jr. in the July/August 1995 issue of Foreign Affairs. Schlesinger had taken to the pages of the flagship journal of the Council on Foreign Relations to vindicate the dubious proposition that the United Nations military represents the thin blue line dividing peaceful civilization from savagery — in short, our planetary police. But what happens when the planetary police run amok and become the agents of bloodshed? When local police abuse their power, the abused have avenues of redress. From what body can those abused by the planetary police seek justice? The escalating scandal of unpunished atrocities committed by UN “peacekeepers” illustrates that the planetary police are beyond accountability.

“Perhaps our leaders should put the question to the people: what do we want the United Nations to be?” Schlesinger wrote. “Do we want it to avert more killing fields around the planet? Or do we want it to dwindle into impotence, leaving the world to the anarchy of nation-states?” Critics of the UN should eagerly embrace such a debate — provided that a copy of the above photograph is made available to all participants. First published in the United States on the cover of the June 24th issue of the left-wing weekly Village Voice, the photograph depicts two Belgian paladins of the new world order giddily holding a Somali child over an open flame. What have been called Beasts in Blue Berets have been filmed kicking and stabbing a Somali, and another UN Peacekeeper apparently urinating on the Somali’s dead body; another showed a Somali child being forced to drink salt water, vomit, and worms.

One atrocity not caught on camera involved the “punishment” of a Somali child by placing him in a metal container and withholding water from him for two days; predictably, the relentless African heat killed the child. One Belgian UN soldier testified that it was a regular practice to use metal boxes as prison cells, and that other Somalis probably died similarly gruesome deaths.

One might expect such photographs and first-person accounts of such atrocities to arouse public indignation against the UN’s “planetary police,” just as the endlessly replayed videotape of the Rodney King arrest turned public opinion against the Los Angeles Police Department and police prosecutions in Baltimore ripped the city apart. Perhaps this is why the photographs have been all but invisible in the United States, and precious little media attention has been devoted to an examination of UN atrocities.

Village Voice reporter Jennifer Gould came across the accounts of the Belgian atrocities while doing an earlier story about sexual harassment of female employees at UN headquarters. “When I spoke with people at the UN, time after time I was told, ‘If you think it’s bad here, you ought to see what happens in peacekeeping operations,’” Gould told The New American. “I started looking into that issue and found that the abuses I reported were well-known and easily documented. They were all over the media abroad, and I was really surprised it hadn’t been written about over here.”

Belgian military authorities launched an investigation into the atrocities following publication of a front-page story by Belgium’s Het Laatste Nieuws. Privates Claude Baert and Kurt Coelus, the two paratroopers photographed dangling the Somali child over a flame, were acquitted by a military court, which ruled that the incident — described by Baert and Coelus as a punishment for stealing — was “a form of playing without violence,” according to prosecutor Luc Walleyn. And what of discipline from the UN, whose “Code of Personal Conduct for Blue Helmets” requires that peacekeepers “respect and regard the human rights of all”? Gould reports that a UN spokesman dismissed the acquittal of Baert and Coelus by insisting that “the UN is not in the habit of embarrassing governments that contribute peacekeeping troops.”

For its diligence in reporting unwelcome news, Het Laatste Nieuws was rewarded with a bomb threat. Reporter Lieve Van Bastelaere informed The New American that the man arrested for making the threat owned a local bar that is frequented by many people in the military, including veterans of “peacekeeping” missions. “He apparently had been angered by what he had read,” Bastelaere observed dryly. “We’ve enhanced our security here at the paper, and the police took the threat seriously, even though he may have been drunk when he made it. He claimed not to remember phoning in the threat when he was arrested.”

Three members of a now-disbanded elite Canadian paratroop regiment were tried and convicted of criminal charges in the beating death of a 16-year-old Somali boy named Shidane Arone; the three “peacekeepers” had been photographed smiling beside the bloody corpse of the boy, whose hands had been bound. The incident prompted the creation of a Canadian government commission to review that nation’s military and its involvement in “peacekeeping” missions; however, the inquiry foundered on the obstructionism of political and military bodies and produced what Canadian critics call an incomplete and inadequate report.

Italian military officials admitted that Italian soldiers assigned to UN duty in Somalia had also tortured and otherwise abused Somali civilians. According to the Washington Post, “Two generals who led the Italian forces to Somalia resigned following publication of graphic reports of sexual violence against a Somali woman, electric torture of a young man and allegations that an officer had murdered a young boy.” Drugs and prostitutes also were allowed to circulate freely among Italian UN troops.

The Italian government assembled a five-member commission of inquiry, which interviewed 145 people and traveled to Africa to interview Somalis who had been tormented by UN troops or witnessed the bestial acts firsthand. The panel’s 46-page report documented that “the criminal events were not just the result of ‘rotten apples’ that you may find in any structure, but were rather the consequence of a stretched line of command and amused compliance toward such high jinks by some junior officers.”

“Shocking as it is, the UN scandal in Somalia is no anomaly,” wrote Gould in the Village Voice. “[An analysis] of documents and reports relating to recent UN peacekeeping operations has uncovered incidents ranging from murder and torture to sexual exploitation, harassment of and discrimination against local women and children.”

The New York Times reported that 47 Canadian UN troops who served in Bosnia were accused of “drunkenness, sex, black marketeering and patient abuse at a mental hospital they were guarding.” The soldiers had been assigned the “humanitarian” chore of guarding a mental hospital at Bakovici in order to secure it for the staff’s return. “The hospital instead became the setting for heavy drinking; sex between soldiers, nurses and interpreters that violated regulations; black-market sales; and harassment of the patients….”

During the “frenzy of looting” that broke out in Liberia decades ago, peacekeepers used UN vehicles to make off with pilfered goods, according to USA Today. UN vehicles — and the troops responsible for them — have also been a boon to Balkan drug smugglers. The Washington Times reported that “U.S. and Bosnian officials suspect that high-ranking UN officials from Jordan based in the central Bosnian towns of Bugojno and Travnik routinely provided UN vehicles to help smugglers get contraband past checkpoints. The officers appear to have received money and the services of prostitutes from the smugglers, led by Islamic foreigners who entered Bosnia with U.S. approval to defend the Muslim government.”

UN forces in Rwanda actually abetted the worst bloodletting in recent memory — the Rwandan genocide, in which a half-million Tutsis were annihilated in approximately 100 days. “Many of the mass murderers were employees of the international relief agencies,” testified Peter Hammond of Frontline Fellowship in Holocaust in Rwanda. In one incident recounted by Hammond, Belgian UN troops stationed in a heavily fortified compound in Kigali “deceived the Tutsi refugees by assembling them for a meal in the dining hall and then they evacuated the base while the refugees were eating. Literally two minutes after the Belgians had driven out of their base, the Presidential Guard poured into the buildings annihilating the defenseless Tutsi refugees.”

The market in prostitution — including child prostitution — thrives wherever blue berets decamp. According to Gould, records of UN peacekeeping missions document that “brothels have sprouted nearby — and in one case allegedly inside — UN compounds. In the latter case, prostitutes were allegedly employed by the UN and were reportedly even shipped on UN planes to fornicate with a UN staff member in hotels paid for by the UN.”

A UN study on children in war reported that blue berets had been involved in child prostitution in six of the 12 countries studied. In country after country unfortunate enough to attract the UN’s “humanitarian” intervention, “the arrival of peacekeeping troops has been accompanied with a rapid rise in child prostitution,” the document reported. However, as Jennifer Gould learned, the mistreatment of women is something of a UN tradition — the world body’s enthusiastic support for radical feminism notwithstanding. Gould described the plight of Catherine Claxon, a UN employee who filed the first-ever sexual harassment complaint against the UN in 1991. After Claxon filed her complaint, “Someone fired a shot through the glass window of a coffee shop by the United Nations” — just above Claxon’s head. “Another bullet shattered Claxon’s windshield as she drove home from her job at the UN one night on the Long Island Expressway.” On three other occasions, Claxon was nearly run off the road — at the same spot where she was nearly killed by the gunshot. According to Gould, “UN women describe a godfather-like institution” — a network of cronyism and corruption. “This is compounded by the fact that in some UN member countries, women are treated as chattel instead of as equals.”

Gould described the UN as “a bizarre universe of intrigue and outrage, where diplomats from 185 countries — stuffed suits simmering with regional, religious, and class-bred hatreds — try to promote world peace.” Such is the character of the institution whose masters crave the power to enforce “world law.” The essence of that abstraction is captured in the photograph of “peacekeepers” Baert and Coelus playfully swinging a Somali child over a fire: Unaccountable power employed mercilessly against the helpless.

More than seven decades ago, while the U.S. Senate was debating ratification of the League of Nations Covenant, Senator William Borah (R-ID) sought to cool the ardor of the League’s supporters by dousing it with a bracing shower of cold reality. Those who believed that a world army would consist of stainless champions of “world peace” were ignoring the unyielding facts about human nature. A world army, Borah declared, would consist of “the gathered scum of the nations organized into a conglomerate international police force ordered hither and thither by the most heterogeneous and irresponsible body or court that ever confused or confounded the natural instincts and noble passions of a people.” Can there be any doubt that the UN has vindicated Borah’s dismal prophecy?

I will leave you with this, a United Nations whistleblower who was suspended for exposing the sexual abuse of children by peacekeepers has resigned over the organization’s failure to hold senior officials to account. By the way, this resignation happened this month, June 2016!

Anders Kompass, director of field operations at the UN human rights office in Geneva, announced his resignation on Tuesday. Kompass – whose suspension last year for exposing the sexual abuse of children in Central African Republic was revealed by the Guardian – said he could no longer work for an organization with no accountability.

unak

“The complete impunity for those who have been found to have, in various degrees, abused their authority, together with the unwillingness of the hierarchy to express any regrets for the way they acted towards me sadly confirms that lack of accountability is entrenched in the United Nations. This makes it impossible for me to continue working there,” he told the IRIN news agency.

Kompass announced his resignation five months after a report commissioned by Ban Ki-moon into the scandal completely exonerated him for sharing confidential documents that revealed children as young as eight and nine were being raped by peacekeepers in the Central African Republic.

Kompass passed the information to French prosecutors after becoming frustrated that nothing was being done by the UN to stop the abuse.

Kompass’s resignation comes after one of the key senior UN figures involved in his suspension in April last year announced last month her intention to seek the position of UN secretary general when Ban stands down at the end of this year.

★★Final thoughts: You will never learn the truth about the UN from the American News Media. Congress will continue to pour our tax dollars down the UN rat hole. It would not surprise me to see Barack Obama as the Secretary General of the UN soon, even if he has to become a citizen of Syria to do so.

Take a Deep Breath & Learn about Judge Gonzalo Curiel

June 14, 2016

The rest of the story: Why Trump is right about Judge Gonzalo Curiel

jgc

By Jeffrey T. Kuhner, World Tribune

The establishment is now looking to finish off Donald Trump. The presumptive Republican nominee is under intense criticism for his comments about the federal judge presiding over the Trump University class-action lawsuit.

Our political and media elites are trying to turn this into Trump’s version of Mitt Romney’s infamous “47 percent” comment — a watershed moment that cripples the GOP candidate’s electoral viability.

The mainstream media — including many on FOX News — and Hillary Clinton are calling the maverick billionaire a racist. Beltway Republicans are piling on. House Speaker Paul Ryan said Trump’s words are a “textbook definition of a racist comment.”

Newt Gingrich growls they are “inexcusable.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has told Trump to “recant.” Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk has rescinded his endorsement. Jeb Bush — who says he will not vote for Trump in November — is demanding that he “apologize” and immediately end his “hateful” and “racist rhetoric.”

Yet, this begs the question: What did Trump say that is so beyond the pale? Answer: nothing. This is political correctness gone mad — a desperate, pathetic attempt to distort and twist the Republican nominee’s words in order to portray him as a vile anti-Mexican bigot.

That liberals are peddling this nonsense is understandable. This is what they do; lying about conservatives is their stock in trade. What is disgraceful, however, is that leading establishment Republicans are joining the lynch mob.

The scandal began when Trump told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Judge Gonzalo Curiel might not be fair and objective because of his “Mexican heritage.” The context is everything. Prior to the interview, Judge Curiel had made numerous questionable and unethical decisions regarding the Trump University lawsuit. The suit was blatantly frivolous and should have been thrown out on several occasions. Judge Curiel refused to do so. In fact, he deliberately ruled that documents be released falsely alleging Trump was running a fraudulent operation. The goal was obvious: to humiliate and smear the Republican nominee.

The judge’s defenders insist that he was born in Indiana, thereby making him an “American.” According to them, to even question the role played by his ethnic heritage is bigotry of the highest order. It’s “Un-American” shouted Paul Ryan. It isn’t — and Judge Curiel’s defenders are either willfully lying or ignorant. Either way, they should be ashamed of themselves.

The fact is Judge Curiel is an anti-American, pro-Mexican radical leftist. His parents were immigrants from Mexico. More importantly, President Obama appointed him to the bench. The reason: Judge Curiel is a staunch supporter of open borders, amnesty and mass illegal immigration — especially, from Mexico.

He is a seminal member of La Raza Lawyers, a militant pro-Hispanic legal organization devoted to promoting “the interests of the Latino communities throughout” California (the judge sits on a bench in San Diego). Judge Curiel is a pro-illegal immigration ideologue; he believes that U.S. immigration laws are fundamentally racist, oppressive and unjust. According to him (and La Raza Lawyers), American sovereignty and immigration statutes must be ignored and eventually eradicated.

He has even participated in La Raza events where he granted scholarships to illegal aliens from Mexico — students, who could not speak a word of English. He is a rogue judge whose allegiance and political affiliation is not to America, but Mexico. He may be born in Indiana. His heart, however, is in Mexico City.

It is not just his ethnic chauvinism and political activism that is deeply troubling. The San Diego law firm behind the Trump University suit also has extensive ties to La Raza Lawyers. Moreover, the firm is a major Hillary Clinton supporter. It paid $675,000 in speeches to Hillary.

In other words, the class-action lawsuit is littered with conflicts of interest — the lawyers on behalf of the plaintiffs and the presiding judge belong to the same radical leftist, pro-Hispanic outfit; and the plaintiffs’ legal team and the presiding judge are partisan Democrats who share a common political interest in bringing down Trump. Any judge worth his salt would have recused himself. Judge Curiel hasn’t.

The reason he won’t is the same reason that Trump is bravely and courageously insisting lies at the heart of the matter: Judge Curiel’s ethnic-based activism and radical political views precludes him from being fair, unbiased or professional.

La Raza in Spanish literally means “the race.” Imagine if a white judge belonged to a legal association called, say, the White Order, which was dedicated entirely to advancing white racial interests and white nationalist causes. That judge would (rightly) be kicked off the bench immediately; the public uproar would be immense; the media and political establishment would be fuming.

Yet, when it comes to Hispanics (and blacks) there is a blatant double standard: They can be racist; they can engage in identity politics; and they can see the world — including our legal system — through the distorted lens of race, ethnicity and blood. Whites, however, cannot. If this is not genuine anti-white racism, then I don’t know what is.

Judge Curiel’s defenders, such as FOX News’ Megyn Kelly, insist that La Raza Lawyers is completely separate from the National Council of La Raza. It’s a distinction without a difference. They are sister organizations. They share the same militant pro-Hispanic left-wing agenda. They both receive much of their funding from open-borders advocates like George Soros. They both are mouthpieces on behalf of the Mexican government. They both champion uncontrolled legal and illegal immigration. And both assert that their Hispanic identity comes before their loyalty to America. In short, they are Latinos first and Americans — if that — second.

The National Council of La Raza is a fifth column. Many of its members call for the “Reconquista” — the re-conquest of the American Southwest by Mexico. They believe — and this is taught in many Mexican schools and espoused in numerous Mexican newspapers — that the United States stole California, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and Arizona during the War of 1848.

They seek to erect a “Greater Mexico” not by military aggression, but through mass immigration and cultural annexation. This is why they aggressively push for sanctuary cities, open borders, bilingualism, unlimited influx of illegal aliens and Hispanic separatism and Latino racial solidarity. Their goal is to forge a distinct Mexican/Hispanic nation within America. It is treason in the form of Balkanization.

This is why La Raza members have been behind many of the violent anti-Trump riots. Take the recent one in San Jose. It’s no accident that Trump supporters were beaten, punched and assaulted, while pro-illegal immigrant rioters burned the American flag and waved the Mexican flag. The logic of Hispanic racial and cultural separatism is clear: Those rampaging thugs may live in America, but they belong to a pan-Mexican homeland.

Trump poses a mortal threat to this revanchist project. His America First agenda — the desire to build a wall along the southern border, enforce our immigration laws, deport criminal illegal aliens, restore America’s sovereignty, renegotiate disastrous trade deals such as NAFTA and end the loss of millions of manufacturing jobs — stands against the globalists and corporate interests that have hijacked both political parties. He is the only major leader willing to oppose the gradual dissolution and betrayal of our country.

Gonzalo Curiel has no business being a federal judge. Any man who belongs to an organization that is defined by and devoted to advancing the interests of a particular ethnic, national group at the expense of others is a narrow-minded bigot. Trump is completely correct: He is the victim of a political witch-hunt by a militant La Raza leftist whose ultimate allegiance is to Mexico — and not America.

The political and media establishment could not defeat Trump during the primary. They are now hoping to crush him before the general election. They have only one strategy left: Smear him as a racist demagogue. This libel is not only false; it must be exposed for the cheap, craven propaganda that it is. They are spinning lies in service to their globalist, corporatist masters. In short, they are traitors, who are willing to sell our country down the river. It’s no wonder they are circling the wagons for Judge Curiel. He’s one of their own — an anti-American zealot who cares nothing for our borders, our culture and our Constitution.

TU

Our transnational elites may adore Judge Curiel. I, however, stand with Trump. With whom do you stand?

Save America from Speaker Ryan & Congress

June 7, 2016

pr3

Today, Speaker Paul Ryan will start detailing policy prescriptions that are part of HIS vision that he says will show Americans what the party is for, rather than focusing on what it’s against.

Why am I skeptical about Paul Ryan doing anything except criticizing Donald Trump for not being like Paul Ryan and using his Power of the Purse to give Obama, Reid & Pelosi everything they could possible want?

Ryan and his Lawyer Lobbyist wife who attended Wellesley College like Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright, Diane Sawyer and Cokie Roberts have amassed a fortune in the area of ten million dollars. That’s quite a feat but what has Ryan done for America?

Ryan has been sucking on the sweet flowing breast of the government for 17 years as a Congressman and has held the most powerful positions in that body including Speaker, Chairman of Ways and Means and Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

pr2

When Ryan swore to uphold and defend the Constitution in 1999, the National Debt stood at $5.6 trillion. A year after Ryan became Budget Chairman; the National Debt soared above $15 trillion for the first time in History. It seems Ryan and his Cartel could not find ANYTHING to cut except the United States Armed Forces and Veteran’s Benefits?

The way Congress allowed our Armed Forces to become provocatively weak represents treason in my mind!

jr

I have NEVER heard one word of criticism flow from Ryan’s lips about President Obama or Obama’s enablers, the United States Congress.

I did hear Speaker Ryan criticize the presumptive Republican Nominee for President many times including most recently for standing up to the activist La Raza anti-Trump U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel. It is ironic that a move is underway to oust another California Judge, the one who sparked outrage after he sentenced a former Stanford University swimmer to just six months in jail for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster outside a campus frat party.

The sentence Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky imposed on Brock Turner, 20, has been blasted by the victim and called a “slap on the wrist” by the San Jose Mercury News.

Of course, that is a criminal matter and Curiel is making hay with the civil suit Trump refuses to settle out of Court. The wealthy and huge companies are often sued because they have deep pockets and are inclined to settle rather than be drug through the mud in a public trial. I remember when everybody was suing aircraft manufacturers because they readily settled for $100,000 when a pilot simply ran out of gas and crashed. The result of not fighting such suits resulted in more and more litigation with the end result of almost destroying general aviation. An aircraft I bought for $11,000 in 1970 would cost over $350,000 today.

Donald Trump knows that if he settles frivolous lawsuits, it will simply result in more and more frivolous lawsuits. The usual suspects: Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, the Washington Post and New York Times never pass up an opportunity to pummel The Donald for standing up for his rights. Most Americans lack the chutzpah to take on a crooked judge. The very idea that a judge could be crooked seems farfetched to most Americans.

We’d like to think our justices and judges are defined by respect, duty and impartiality. But behind that iconic black robe isn’t always a tireless drive to uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States. Some of the most revered judges are worse than the criminals they should be sentencing. I will mention a couple corrupt judges who will make you question your faith in the legal system but there are so many more!

May I remind you about Judge Mark Ciavarella’s Kids For Cash Scheme? Nicknamed “Mr. Zero Tolerance”, Ciavarella was a big supporter of harsh sentences…for kids. Ciavarella sent thousand of children to a local detention center during his tenure in Luzerne County, PA. Think the kids deserved it? Listen to this: Ciavarella sent an 11-year-old to juvenile detention for almost two years after the kid took his mom’s car for a ride down the block. He also sent a 15-year-old to the same detention facility for mocking her assistant principal on social media and gave a 17-year-old first offender five months for helping steal a DVD. The judge got kickbacks from the facility where he sent those kids. No wonder the hearings often lasted only two minutes, Ciavarella got up to a million dollars for putting hundreds of innocent children behind bars. The courts wised up to his plans, and eventually sentenced Mr. Zero Tolerance to 27 years in prison. Following his sentencing, nearly 4,000 of Ciavarella’s previous convictions were overturned. Too little, too late if you ask Gene McVay!

Then there is Judge Thomas J. Maloney from the infamous Cook County. Maloney and numerous fellow Cook County judges were the focus of an investigation named Operation Greylord. The operation was a joint investigation by the FBI, IRS, USPS and the Illinois State Police to track down corrupt judges. Don’t worry, NOBODY is about to do anything these days about corrupt judges!

Judge Maloney was working his magic in high-profile murder cases. In exchange for rigging murder cases Maloney got over $100,000 in bribes. Maloney let mafia members, murderers and gangsters walk free, as long as he got his “fee.” To this day Maloney is listed as “one of the worst judges in history.” He was convicted of racketeering extortion and obstructing justice.

I could go on and on but YOU have Google. Do I have to spoon feed everybody?

What Ryan is doing today is paving the way to combat President Trump and maintain the status quo in Congress that brought America to the brink of total collapse. Yes, Republican Leaders love to blame President Obama for America’s sorry state of affairs and too many Americans fall for Ryan’s pompous blather. Do you remember that the Democrats did not need any Republicans to pass the Anything But Affordable Care Act? However, the Republicans could have stopped Obamacare in its tracks, especially when Obamacare resulted in the Democrats losing both the Senate and House. If Ryan and Boehner were half as manly as Nancy Pelosi, they would have used the power of the purse like a brick wall to stop Obama.

So here we stand, We the People and Donald Trump against the world and against Ryan, Romney, the Bushes and 100% of the crooked media. It shouldn’t be much of a challenge!

The Glorification & Adoration of the Clinton Cartel

June 2, 2016

☆☆Ponder yourself, the person you see in the mirror every morning. You are a mere mortal subject to federal, state and local laws. The all powerful government can take your home, your land and your freedom. Even if you are innocent the government can bankrupt you faster than it bankrupted the Coal Industry.

Most people are just like you. Cabinet Members, United States Senators, Representatives, Governors and even the Speaker of the House have felt the long arm of the law and spent time in jail or paid huge fines and served on probation.

There is one couple who is not subject to any laws. Murder, Rape, High Crimes & Misdemeanors are just words in the Dictionary. These two are so far above the law the Hubble Telescope cannot detect them. Whatever they do is cloaked and protected by everybody around them, sometimes to the death.

While the Army of Reporters dig into the Trump University or the Trump Fundraiser for Veterans, the Anointed Couple runs an untouchable international organization called the Clinton Foundation. The Foundations claims that 88% of the funds go to, “Life Changing Work.” Even if that were true, that’s a lot of overhead for a Foundation where foreign governments stand in line to donate millions while their people do without essentials.

bcf

Unfortunately, it appears the real number is closer to 10%. The Foundation gave 75,000 to Veterans while Trump’s organization has given $5.6 million so far with more pledges coming in. Don’t EVER expect the Clinton Foundation to get scrutiny approaching 1% of the twisted digging into Trump’s January Fundraiser. Why do you suppose that is? Does it depend on what “is” means? Having been unable to choose the Republican Nominee for President as is customary for the mainstream press, perhaps they will redouble their efforts to select our next President like they selected the last several.

Carly Fiorina was onto Hillary before she turned her energy toward the Leading Republican Candidate.

Yesterday, when somebody mentioned Vince Foster on the Hannity radio program, he was quickly cut off. The audacity of anybody bringing up the inconvenient truth about the mysterious death of Hillary’s bosom buddy is taboo, even on Hannity. When I typed “deaths asso” into Google Search, the site filled in the rest, “deaths associated with the Clinton’s.” There are many and none of these victims are resting in peace.

“In 1971 I met a girl. In 1972 I met three girls.  In 1974 I met a passel of girls.  By 1975, I had girls stashed under the bed, in the closet and in the attic.  There is just something about girls that I love, the younger the better.”

The adoration and glorification of the Clinton Cartel is a phenomenon that future civilizations will study with incredulous mystification.  They will ponder why the entire News Industry was so willing to fall on their swords and cross the Rubicon for Bill & Hillary.  I agree, it defies logic and common sense.

The Clinton’s achieve Super Star status in the Sexual Genre. Donald Trump said Hillary was not an innocent victim; that she played a role in Bill Clinton’s abuse of women.

“Trump said, “Her defense is — she’s got a problem. She’s married to a person that’s a serious abuser and I mean, at the highest level, and she — you know, she’s not an innocent victim. She was the one that would go along with him in this whole game that they play. And you look at what happened with some of the people that he took advantage of and then she gets involved. So she’s not like the innocent person sitting by the side with tears in her eyes She was very much involved.”

It is commonly believed by Clinton victims that Hillary was behind the siccing of private investigators on the many women who accused her husband of rape, sexual assault or infidelity.

Hillary Clinton revealed her hidden hand when she menacingly issued a clear warning of intimidation to her husband’s accusers and those who would pursue their charges on the nationally broadcast Today Show during the days after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke.

The Today Show interview with Matt Lauer on January 27, 1998 is famous for Hillary’s claim that a “vast right-wing conspiracy” was behind the allegations of an affair between her husband President Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

“This is—the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. A few journalists have kind of caught on to it and explained it. But it has not yet been fully revealed to the American public. And actually, you know, in a bizarre sort of way, this may do it.”

Later in the interview, Hillary bluntly issued her threat:

“I think we’re going to find some other things. And I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.”

Less than two weeks later, former high level Clinton White House operative George Stephanopoulos said on the an ABC News Sunday morning talk show that the Clinton administration was threatening to go scorched earth on Clinton’s accusers and investigators by employing the ‘Ellen Rometsch strategy’ should they not back down.

The ‘Ellen Rometsch strategy’ involved blackmailing into silence Clinton accusers, investigators and political opponents by threatening to expose their backgrounds if they did not back off.  (I wish I could go into the Ellen Rometsch story. Briefly, Attorney General Bobby Kennedy sent J. Edgar Hoover to Capitol Hill with a not-so-friendly word to the wise. ‘Don’t investigate this,’ he told the Republicans. ‘Because if you do, we’re going to open up everybody’s closets.’ J. Edgar Hoover, as every Republican knew, held the key to a lot of closets and was familiar with what was in all of them.”)

Sam Donaldson: “We know what the White House tactics are. I mean they have been almost open about it. Attack the press, and perhaps with good reason, attack the independent counsel, perhaps for some good reason, and stonewall on the central issue, which is the President of the United States. If he has nothing to hide, why is he hiding?”

George Stephanopoulos: “I agree with that. There’s a different, long-term strategy, which I think would be far more explosive. White House allies are already starting to whisper about what I’ll call the Ellen Rometsch strategy.”

During and after the Lewinsky investigation that led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice, numerous women accusers were publicly or privately persecuted while several high-ranking Republican congressmen were exposed as adulterers for supporting Clinton’s impeachment–leading to the tumultuous resignation of Speaker-Designate Bob Livingston who was set to replace Newt Gingrich who resigned before his own adultery was exposed.

The intimidation campaign threatened by Hillary Clinton worked.

An intimidated GOP-led Senate held a pro-forma impeachment trial with a pre-arranged verdict of ‘not guilty’ so that senators would not be subjected to retribution via the Ellen Rometsch strategy as the House was, according to House impeachment investigator David Schippers.

The Lewinski affair did come at a cost; President Clinton was held in civil contempt of court by Judge Susan Webber Wright. His license to practice law was suspended in Arkansas and later by the United States Supreme Court. He was also fined $90,000 for giving false testimony in the separate Paula Jones case.

President Clinton reached an out-of-court settlement with Paula Jones, agreeing to pay her $850,000 to drop the sexual harassment lawsuit that led to the worst political crisis of his career and only the third presidential impeachment inquiry in American history.

After more than 4 1/2 years of scorched-earth legal warfare, Clinton and Jones brought a sudden end to the case with a four-page deal in which he acknowledged no wrongdoing and offered no apology.

Robert S. Bennett, Clinton’s chief attorney in the case, said the president still insists Jones’s allegations of a crude proposition in a Little Rock hotel suite seven years ago “are baseless” but agreed to make the payment in the interest of finally putting the matter behind him.

“The president has decided he is not prepared to spend one more hour on this matter,” Bennett said. “It is clear that the American people want their president and Congress to focus on the problems that they were elected to solve. This is a step in that direction.”

The extraordinary case came to an extraordinary finale, with the defendant agreeing to pay $850,000 even though the plaintiff originally only asked for $700,000 when she filed suit — and even though the case was dismissed without a trial.

I should mention Kenneth Winston “Ken” Starr before closing this epistle. Starr served as a federal Court of Appeals judge and as solicitor general for George H. W. Bush. He received the most publicity for his tenure as independent counsel while Bill Clinton was U.S. president. Starr was initially appointed to investigate the suicide death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster and the Whitewater real estate investments of Bill Clinton. The three-judge panel charged with administering the Independent Counsel Act later expanded the inquiry into numerous areas including an extramarital affair that Bill Clinton had with Monica Lewinsky. After several years of investigation, Starr filed the Starr Report, which alleged that Bill Clinton had lied about the existence of the affair during a sworn deposition. The allegation opened the door for the impeachment of Bill Clinton and the five-year suspension of Clinton’s law license.

I bring up Ken Starr wondering how much pressure he felt from the Clinton Scorched Earth Team during his long investigation. Apparently Ken is without sin since he did not mysteriously commit suicide and is now Chancellor of Baylor University.

It is interesting that only one single member of the Obama Administration has been punished: General David Petraeus, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. On April 23, 2015, a federal judge sentenced Petraeus to two years’ probation plus a fine of $100,000 for providing classified information to Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell, his biographer. Not exactly Iran, North Korea, Syria or Libya and not information classified above Top Secret. The Justice Department did not need the Hubble Telescope to find the General’s transgressions and it didn’t take years and years to uncover. Nope, the greatest combat general of our generation is not like the Clinton’s, not at all!

Bill and Hillary Clinton went on to become multi-millionaires and global political superstars while the press continues to discard their research files on Bill’s sordid past as irrelevant and, after all, what difference does it make what Hillary did or didn’t do?

Sometimes, where there’s smoke, there may be a thermonuclear explosion?
