55 Years of Carte Blanche Lies by Main Stream Media

By Kelleigh Nelson

Governments are composed of human beings, and all of the frailties that humans possess are absorbed into these governments and become active within these governments. Hatred, anger, jealousy, fear, greed, distrust and the whole host of afflictions that humans must bear, lurk just beneath the surface of civility displayed by government. John McAfee

For the poison of hatred seated near the heart doubles the burden for the one who suffers the disease; he is burdened with his own sorrow, and groans on seeing another’s happiness. Aeschylus

As soon as the 2016 election results came in, many on the left exploded in anger, smashing windows, setting fires, calling for Trump to be assassinated, and labeling his supporters bigots and sexists who should be murdered. Protesters burned Trump in effigy, and passed around a stuffed figure of Trump in a noose.

And then came the Russia Collusion Investigation, thanks to Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of Robert Mueller whose thirty-year modus operandi has destroyed countless lives. Link

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, the nation’s former so-called spy master, James Clapper, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”

There you have it, and despite the Russia collusion investigation being over, targeting President Trump for elimination will never be over.  We know all the players and we want them prosecuted for their corruption, but it’s highly unlikely they will ever be held accountable. 

A stench has been emanating from the J. Edgar Hoover Building (FBI headquarters) for decades, but in the last 10 years the decay has become evident.  The brazen plot against President Trump by the Obama-era FBI and DOJ was enabled by a complicit media.

Defamation Law

The odor of corruption has long been noxious and truth is not forthcoming from media.  Why?  Because the 1964 Supreme Court decision in NYTs v. Sullivan gave media a “first amendment” right to lie with impunity about any public figure they wished to destroy or promote thus protecting them from most libel suits.

A public official could recover in a libel action only if and when a court found that the libelous statement about the official was made with “actual malice”—that is, with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not.  As long as the press has an “absence of malice,” public officials are barred from recovering damages for the publication of false statements about them.

Defamation law, the ability to sue someone for false attacks on your reputation, was governed by state law until 1964.  The landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254, 84 S. Ct. 710, 11 L. Ed. 2d 686 (1964), extended the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech to libel cases brought by public officials. The Supreme Court sought to encourage “public debate” by changing the rules involving libel that had previously been the province of state law and state courts.

In the case of police Commissioner Sullivan, the State of Alabama found for him against NYTs libel and awarded him $500k which was upheld by the Alabama Supreme Court in 1962.  However, the very liberal Warren Court took up the case filed by the NYTs against Sullivan.

The unanimous Warren Supreme Court decision in New York Times Company v. Sullivan was argued on January 6-7, 1964 and decided on March 9, 1964.  It has proven to be one of the very worst decisions ever made by the supreme court.

Calls to Overturn NYTs v. Sullivan

Justice Clarence Thomas recently called for the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the landmark 1964 New York Times v. Sullivan ruling. Thomas wrote that the New York Times ruling and follow-up cases “were policy-driven decisions masquerading as constitutional law.”

President Donald Trump has called for overhauling the country’s libel laws to make it easier to sue.  He first mentioned the NYTs v. Sullivan case in 2016 when he campaigned in Alabama where the case originated.  He had previously asked why the media was allowed to lie and that is when I wrote my original article on this horrendous ruling. 

Now L. Lin Wood, attorney for Covington High School student, Nicholas Sandmann has expounded on this horrible decision and how the ruling enables media to ruin reputations. Nick became the latest focus of false and defamatory accusations published and broadcast across the nation and the world. 

Attorney Wood made it very clear on a recent Mark Levin program when he stated he was a believer in the first amendment but that it has no strings and no real value when there is no accountability for wrongdoing.  He explained that with the Nicholas Sandmann case, it was false speech by both social and main stream media (MSM) that threatened, attacked and vilified a minor child.

Watch the twelve-minute Mark Levin interview of Lin Wood’s discussion regarding the NYTs v. Sullivan decision and how it has affected all of society negatively.

55 Years of Media Deterioration

Attorney Wood was right when he mentioned the deterioration in the media, and over 55 years it has grown exponentially worse.  Mr. Wood said he has watched the media since the  Richard Jewell case, and it is horribly unhealthy.  He said, “There’s nothing valuable to our public discourse for people to simply go out and tell rumors, lies, make accusations with no sources and to be able to use the media and the First Amendment to, in effect, advance his or her or some corporation’s own agendas. That’s what happened to Nicholas. There’s a lot of agendas at work.” 

Attorney Wood explained that the large corporations who own the media outlets have no objectivity and no fairness to them and are extensions of political parties who wish to influence the public instead of informing the public.  It used to be for media, “Get it first, but get it right.”  They’ve thrown out get it right and even get it first.  He says that if we don’t get accountability, the deterioration will continue. 

The Russia Collusion Narrative

Efforts by high-ranking officials in the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ), and State Department to portray President Donald Trump as having colluded with Russia were the culmination of years of bias and politicization under the Obama administration. The weaponization of the intelligence community and other government agencies created an environment that allowed for obstruction in the investigation into Hillary Clinton and the relentless pursuit of a manufactured collusion narrative against Trump.  Link

A willing and complicit media spread unsubstantiated leaks as facts in an effort to promote the Russia-collusion narrative. Worse yet was the “epic disconnect between the Robert Mueller described by the MSM and Officialdom as a model of public propriety and the Robert Mueller documented by independent researchers.  Rep. Louie Gohmert wrote a 15,500-word monograph exposing Mueller, and Louisiana State Senator John Milkovich wrote an entire book on Mueller.

The Spygate scandal also raises a bigger question: Was the 2016 election a one-time aberration, or was it symptomatic of decades of institutional political and media corruption?

Conclusion

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was given no restrictions regarding the collusion investigation from his appointee, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.  In fact, Rosenstein testified that he told Mueller he could investigate any crimes he uncovered in the Russia collusion investigation.

“Rod is a survivor,” dirty cop James Comey once said privately of Rosenstein, not meaning it as a compliment. Rosenstein’s survival helped Special Counsel Robert Mueller do his job absent interference. Every day Rosenstein didn’t resign bought the special counsel more time for character assassination against the President and his supporters. He needs to be fired for a host of reasons.

The day Rosenstein is actually forced out will be a very good day.  Unfortunately, it won’t be soon enough. Attorney General William Barr has asked Rosenstein to remain despite the fact that as Deputy AG he allowed Mueller to carry out his modus operandi of intimidation and destruction without any oversight.

The group at the FBI that doggedly pursued the false collusion story is the same group that let Hillary Clinton slide on deleting official emails, creating an illegal computer server and destroying evidence of her wrongdoing with coverups by the complicit democratic controlled media.  It’s also the same group who in 2009 allowed her to sell 20 percent of our uranium to Russia with the help of FBI Director Mueller, while the Clinton Foundation raked in $145 million via Rosatom.

The clear double standard of the liberal media and their role as propagandists is in full view.  This is why the 1964 Warren Court NYTs decision must be overturned. 

In the next article, we’ll discuss those who were targeted by Mueller, the Democrat Party and the media and have paid extremely high prices for supporting an outsider for President.

Opening Day!

By J. D. Pendry

Are you a fan of the great American Pastime?  Have you ever used black tape from your Dad’s toolbox to put the baseball back together then go out and have a game with it?  When there was only one bat?  When you came in from the field, if you had a mitt you dropped it at your position for the next kid to use?  Your cleats were high top black sneakers?  Your uniform worn jeans and a tee-shirt?  You had a stack of baseball cards in the back pocket of your jeans and a jaw full of bubblegum?  Maybe even yesterday’s bubblegum?  Recall how proud you were when you made the team?  In the days when you actually had to make the team?  How proud you were on game day to don your little league Yankee uniform?  And wear your cap all the time?  Except at the dinner table?  The times when life was just a fun place to be?

I played baseball until my age exceeded my talent.  In my early Army days, I played men’s fast pitch and slow pitch softball.  It was fun, but not quite the same when the thud of the bat replaced the crack of the bat.  Still, on the softball field I was a little kid except that maybe the bubble gum was replaced by a chew and there were knee pads under my pants.

I followed my son from tee-ball days to high school.  Life permitting, I was there every season from spring until fall.  Those were special, unforgettable times.  The difference between my son and me?  He was the gifted athlete to my Pete Rose.  He had natural ability and there was nothing natural about my abilities.  When he went off to college, I found myself sitting in the bleachers watching the team he helped win a championship practice.  I had rather severe withdrawal symptoms.  The kind where you wonder what you are going to do from March to October.

As a youngster growing up in West Virginia, I was a Reds fan although I don’t recall a single player from the team.  I was also a Yankees fan, as was every other kid.  We all knew Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Whitey Ford and would trade a whole pack of cards including the bubblegum for one of theirs.  When I was barely a teenager, we moved to Chicago.  The Cubs games were on television every afternoon and if I was home, I watched.  When I learned how to get on the Clark Street bus and make my way to Wrigley field, I’d go to a game if could come up with the price of a ticket.  Sometimes, in the spring before school was out, I’d be in the stands for the afternoon game rather than my classes.  The great thing is in those days all the Cubs games were afternoon games because there were no lights at Wrigley.

Just mentioning 1969 still brings on a little nausea.  The Cubs were rolling in 69.  They were so hot and certain of the National League pennant, they recorded a song, “hey, hey holy mackerel the Chicago Cubs are on the way.”  Oh, I remember Kessinger to Beckert to Banks, the battery of Fergie Jenkins and Randy Hundley, sweet swinging Billy Williams and a big smiling Ernie Banks saying “let’s play three today.”  I remember watching on television when Jack Brickhouse and his signature “Hey, Hey!” when Ernie hit number 500.  In 1969, the Cubs lost out to the Mets and I have never forgiven the Mets.

Yesterday was opening day.  With the blessing of today’s technology and a streaming subscription, I can watch every Cubs game if Suzie-Q allows it.  Last night the Cubs bats pounded the Texas Rangers and Cubs fans in Texas were flying the W.  Sometimes it is just great to get lost in the moment and let the annoying stuff pass you by.  Baseball.  It still is the great American Pastime.

HMMMHHH?

By Paul Schneidmill

During the 1990’s an entertainer had an initial iteration as a late-night television show host.  The show would periodically display a comedy sketch that focused on certain current controversial topics or social issues that could be deemed somewhat unusual, which in turn would ultimately lead to the pondering of these areas to the point of eliciting the introspective verbal phrase known as: “Hmmmhhh.” 

I would like to convey a semblance of that thought process here within this great platform, the American Journal, with some “Hmmmhhh” thought reflections of my own:

Now that I’m retired for the second and final time (HALLEJAH You and Me), I actually “listen” to the mid-day local news within my undisclosed zip codish location.  I say “listen” because I’m usually doing some of my “creative cooking” and need to concentrate my visual capabilities on what I’m doing, lest I set the house on fire and incur the wrath of my still-yet after 27 years of marriage; beautiful and beauteous Bride.

I’m sure you’ll now want to know what I mean by “creative cooking,” so I’ll share a couple of my “recipes” before we get to “Hmmmhhh.”

Today, while “listening” to the news, I took a frozen turkey burger, cooked it in a skillet; then chopped it into crumbles and spread it on a frozen veggie pizza and then baked that – thus “creating a “Turkey Veggie Pizza” or TVP!  Another time, I baked a frozen eggplant cutlet, placed them atop a cooked turkey burger on a brioche bun, then topped the cutlet with a slice of cheese and some spaghetti sauce – thus creating an “Eggplant Parmesan Turkey Burger!”  Admittedly, the cheese was cheddar and not parmesan, but I was being creative; and yes, you guessed it – I like turkey burgers…and eggplant too!!! 

Okay, now to my rendition of the “Hmmmhhh” segment. 

The news today reported that statistics concerning the use of marijuana have determined that medical concerns not beneficial to the user, have increased.  Medical information has determined that people who ingest marijuana (via brownies, candy, cookies, etc) as opposed to smoking it, don’t achieve the “high” as quickly as would be obtained if it was smoked.  That’s because it takes about three hours for marijuana to take effect when ingested as opposed to instantaneously when smoked.  Due to the lack of this knowledge by the user, the “ingesters” tend to “overeat” the baked/cooked/mixed food items and end up in Hospital Emergency Rooms with symptoms ranging from hallucinations to racing heartbeats to cardiac arrests.   Sooooooo, does this “overeating” of marijuana mean that soon there will an obesity epidemic on the rise simply from cannabis-eating within caloric content?  “Hmmmhhh.”

The news also reported that an actor known primarily from a popular television series that was facing 16 charges of criminal conduct from what law enforcement determined stemmed from insurmountable evidence; had all the charges dropped by way of an “agreement” with the office of the prosecution directly involved with this prominent news story.  Sooooooo, can anyone now have their pending due to evidence criminal charges dropped with their prosecuting office concerning the crime/crimes if there is simply an agreement reached to what – not do it/get caught doing it again?  “Hmmmhhh.” 

Here’s one that’s not necessarily “news” associated.”  People who are esteemed famous in the entertainment industry such as actors, comedians, musicians and singers, etc., often get memorialized on a famous sidewalk on the west coast known as the “Walk of Fame.”  Historically, this honor was bestowed upon the honorees after they’d established themselves as prolifically talented in their particular vein of entertainment.  Now, there are people who have become “famous” for having the “talented ability” of keeping up with and knowing all the business of the “actual” people who have demonstrated that they’re talented enough to be in the entertainment industry.  Sooooooo, can one now become memorialized on the “Walk of Fame” because they climbed into the dumpster behind legitimate entertainers’ homes and thus are able to tell the world via various forms of media, what type of disposable diapers these celebrities used on their babies?  “Hmmmhhh.”   

Lastly, on a personal note, according to WebMD (which I find very informative) certain physical changes take place within all of us as we get older.  For example, hair grows within the human ear at an increased rate.  Sooooooo, does this mean that I am eventually going to need an “Ear Brush”  “Hmmmhhh.”  

It’s possible I may revisit these “Hmmmhhh” ponderings from time-to-time, and I invite you share some of your own. 

Oh yeah…one more creative cooking thingie…sort of…if you mix “Cherry Soda” with “Root Beer,” you can make a drink that you can use as a toast at celebrations and such that you can literally call as you make the toast… (once again, wait for it…) “Cheers…”

The hero aura

By J. D. Pendry

Not every person of military service is a hero.  Not every person who serves does so out of patriotism.  Many are compelled into service for varying reasons.  They may be obliged to continue a family tradition.  Service may be the means to pay for their education.  They may look to the service to give them a marketable skill.  There are a multitude of reasons.  And on the political side?  Politicians seem always ready for purposes of self-aggrandizement to promote their Veteran status and exaggerate their military exploits.  Some get caught making their false claims of service and heroics.  But others?  They’re protected by the hero aura.

Whether by conscription or volunteering, I was conditioned in my early life to believe military service was something young men should experience.  From Southern West Virginia, at least in my time, I’d wager that many more young men left high school headed for the military or a coal mine than did for college.  My initial enlistment into the Army was by no means a selfless act. The farthest thing from it.  My odds of going to Vietnam were quite good, but by the time I completed training, Vietnam was in full drawdown.  When I enlisted In 1971, I was not thinking about service or patriotism or anything except escaping from the hillbilly ghettoes on the North Side of Chicago.  Later for me, it came to be about service and patriotism because I found my family and a fulfilling purpose of serving something greater than self.

People like me are not heroes.  Most now serving and most Veterans will tell you they do not consider themselves heroic, but will always offer they’ve served with and known true heroes.  True heroes are the humblest people you’ll ever encounter.  They do not boast and insist on recognizing accomplishments of others before themselves and attributing to others the deeds for which they are recognized.  Soldiers in the collective often perform heroic acts or complete heroic missions.  It’s their standard – their warrior creed.  They will tell you who the heroes are.  Those selfless individuals who exceed self-imposed expectations often performing miraculous acts of bravery to become true heroes among the heroic.

Over compensating America, justifiably so, is guilt ridden over its treatment of Vietnam Veterans and Veterans in general so today everyone that serves is easily labeled hero.  On some, are built legends.  Some try to build their own heroic story or just outright lie about it for other purposes.  In shining, practically impenetrable armor they mount their white horses and gallop in seeking adoration.  I learned early in my Army career to be wary of the boastful who rode in on their noble status to fix you or save you. Generally, they could do neither because they were preoccupied with self-promotion. People hesitate to oppose those fenced off by the hero aura.  Because of it, bad things sometimes happen or bad things are covered up.  We tiptoe lightly around the hero aura.  The longer a myth perpetuates the tougher it is to break through that armor.  It is much easier to pretend admiration of a hero, real or mythical, than to question their heroic merits or motives.  When their hero standing becomes national, their armor becomes impenetrable.  They will be admired and defended by people who neither know the truth nor pursue it.

By now, you may be wondering what possessed me to write about this topic.  For the past few days I’ve poured over pages of information refreshing my memory about a few select and prominent people.  Some real heroes and some self-proclaimed.  Some still living some passed on.  I was a little angered by recent news and I fully intended to dismantle some prominent individuals and had compiled pages of information with that in mind.  It was going to be a full out brutally honest assault.  I was pumped for it. 

Then someone I trust implicitly and have near 5 decades, the kindest and gentlest soul I know, asked me why is that necessary.  Other than satisfying my own anger, I could not offer a good reason.  I was reminded that even bad people have families and they’ve probably endured enough.  So, I will just leave it here.  I will not stand in judgement of anyone.  For as bad as I believe some of them are or were, each will face or have faced his or her Maker.  All of us, whether or not history records true legacies, for the lives we’ve lived we will be held accountable.  Our country has known many true heroes.  We have also been served many myths.  Myths that have harmed us as people and a country.  Always seek the truth.  Do not become blinded by the brightness of the hero aura.

What else can’t you do?

By Paul Schneidmill

Whenever I ask someone “How are you doing?” I always find it completely weird when their response is “I can’t complain.”  Some folk even get emphatic and expressive with that statement by prefacing their weird-to-me response with an “Oh,” as in “Oh, I can’t complain.”  Why is that response weird to me you may query…well, I have three reasons.  I’ll share them with you now in an unprioritized order:

Number 1. The response to my question is not true, i.e., it’s an L.I.E., because anyone can complain – no one with breath and the ability/capability of speech is incapable of complaining – complaining is one of the easiest things anyone can do; one does not need to be trained in the “art” of complaining (though I’ve actually met people who could definitely qualify as having mastered that art) and to do so requires no amount whatsoever of skill. 

Number 2. The response to my question does not remotely answer the question.  An “I can’t complain” response to a question asked regarding the well-being of the person asked, is like asking a politician if it’s raining (or any question for that matter) – the response you’d get would likely be a fully verbose dissertation designed to deflect or some type of thesis-defending statement (which I think might be the same thing…sometimes).   

Number 3. The response to my question means…well…I really don’t know what it means…I mean, in relation to what I asked: “How are you doing?” – what does or is “I can’t complain” supposed to mean?  What in the in the H  E  double L’s is that response supposed to convey?  It most assuredly doesn’t answer my question…it doesn’t inform me as to how one is doing – it gives me no barometer of frame of reference in the tee-ninchiest bit as to how one is doing figuratively, literally or otherwise.  It’s simply an evasive and misleading response (see Point 2 with emphasis on the politician segment).

Sooooooo, in my complete and undeniably self-evaluated quantification of wisdom, I have a developed a response to that particular response – “Oh yeah…what else can’t you do?

Imagine be asked a question in the vein of “What can’t you do?” in a myriad of communicative situations…like a job interview, or a juror qualification screening, or maybe a conversation concerning commitment in a relationship.

The thing about the word “can’t” in literally any setting, is that it’s almost always indicative of limitations.  There’s nothing wrong with people knowing their limits or limitations – I’m certainly not against that – I’m just not a promoter of accepting or readily addressing, i.e., publicly claiming and proclaiming them; because in many cases our limitations can be overcome, pushed out further…stretched out farther…

For example – if unable to do so now, we could totally learn how and achieve the ability to properly answer a simple question…….but if we can’t….we need to introspectively ask ourselves (wait for it…)

“What else can’t you do?”

Fox News Leans Left and Caves to Islamic Sharia Law

By Kelleigh Nelson

Within the government, within the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, you have practically eliminated any training or any use of the term ‘radical Islam.’ That’s what we’re facing. LTG Michael T. Flynn

I will not abridge my freedoms so as not to offend savages, freedom of speech is under violent assault here. Pamela Geller

It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law (sharia) on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet. Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan Al-Banna

To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.  Voltaire

Fox News is no longer run by CFR member Rupert Murdoch.  It is now being controlled by Rupert’s eldest son, 47-year-old Lachlan Murdoch.  Although Lachlan says his politics closely resemble his father’s, Fox News and Fox Business are unarguably leaning to the left. Though Lachlan hired West Wing stalwart Hope Hicks, staffers believe he is likely to nudge the network away from its close marriage to Trump, and they have lost many of their famous male hosts to #MeToo claims against them. 

Bill O’Reilly left the network in April of 2017 after numerous claims of sexual harassment lawsuits against him. 

Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of Fox News had several women make charges against him.  He died shortly after he resigned.

Eric Bolling was accused of sending lewd pictures to female colleagues at the Network. 

Unfortunately, none of these charges ever went to court.  The alleged perpetrators just resign.  Even black host Charles Payne was charged with sexual inuendoes, but returned to his scheduled program after a month of absences.

Were all guilty?  We don’t know, and never will, but having a Y chromosome doesn’t make someone a lousy human being.

If sexual innuendos do not remove hosts, charges of racism often work, two things the left loves to use against their enemies.  But a guaranteed removal is telling the truth about Islam.  As Pamela Geller has said, “Truth has become the new hate speech.”

Fox News and Censorship

Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch used to be featured on Fox programs every week.  However, in October of 2018, Chris was on Lou Dobbs show regarding the southern border migrants and made the statement, “A lot of these affiliates are getting money from the Soros occupied State Department, and that is a great concern.  If you want to start cutting money, cut there.” 

He was subsequently banned as being anti-Semitic for stating that Soros was funding the migrant affiliates. 

Congressman Louie Gohmert was on Stuart Varney’s Show December 6, 2018, and he made this statement, “George Soros is supposed to be Jewish, but you wouldn’t know it from the damage he’s inflicted on Israel, and the fact that he turned on fellow Jews and helped (the Nazis) take the property that they owned.” 

Representative Gohmert was undoubtedly supporting Chris Farrell and exposing Soros for what he really is…someone strictly interested in the globalization of America.

Attorney Sidney Powell, author of the book, Licensed to Lie, was on Lou Dobbs Show last November 2018 and made the statement, “We simply cannot tolerate continued invasion of this country when Americans suffer every day, national debt is exploding, we have diseases spreading that are causing polio-like paralysis of our children.”  Lou Dobbs immediately took her to task and cut her off.

We are in the midst of an invasion from people of various backgrounds, from various countries in Central America and South America, and just independently (with some days of separation apart), there’s a story of a shockingly unforeseen increase in polio cases in the United States. 

No one can seemingly figure this out or where it’s coming from. Then there’s another story of mass numbers of people from various parts of the world, South America and Central America having this polio like disease. Common sense tells you there’s a relationship here.

The CDC and others have established the fact that new cases of polio and other diseases America previously cured and stamped out, are now showing up again.  There is official linkage to undocumented people arriving in the country and being released.  How can we not make the connection?  Sidney Powell is right.

Fox News Caves to Sharia

The recent outrage surrounding Judge Jeanine Pirro’s remarks concerning the hijab is a reflection of the abysmal degree to which common sense is under assault in America.

While discussing Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s anti-Israel remarks with Nancy Pelosi, Pirro said, “This is not who your party is. Your party is not anti-Israel. She is. Think about this, she’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democratic Party, so if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab which according to the Koran 33:59 tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?

There was nothing wrong with Judge Jeanine’s question.  Islamic “fashion” has political consequences.  The hijab is a symbol and it is a symbol of the fact that the woman wearing it is fully committed to the sharia.  It is a symbol that says to infidels that they are kafirs. Kafir is an Arabic term meaning “infidel.”  The term refers to a person who rejects or disbelieves in Allah or the tenets of Islam.  When you see a woman with a hijab, you are looking at the politics of Islam as it has operated for over 1400 years.

There has been jihad against the kafirs for 1400 years; it is a history of annihilation, death and suffering.  They are antithetical to freedom.

Terrorism became much more frequent in such societies as Indonesia, Egypt, Algeria, and the U.K. after the hijab became prevalent among Muslim women living in those communities.  Link

The reason for this correlation is clear: Islamic sharia commands jihad (terrorism) against unbelievers no less than it commands Muslim women to don the hijab. Where one proliferates—evincing a societal adherence to sharia—so too will the other naturally follow.

So just why is it that with any other politician we are allowed to ask personal and religious questions.  When John Kennedy ran for president, everyone was concerned that his Catholic faith would interfere with his political decisions and he was constantly questioned, but we are considered Islamophobic if we ask questions like Judge Jeanine asked?  Ilhan Omar should be asked the following questions regarding her visceral hatred of Israel and the Jewish people:

  • Will you repudiate the Koranic teaching that Jews are “ descendants of apes and pigs“?
  • Will you repudiate the attacks upon Israel by Hamas and Hezbollah?
  • Do you believe Israel has a legal and moral right to exist behind safe and definite borders?

Don Boys recent article asked many more legitimate questions, but Omar’s vitriolic diatribe against Jews needs to cease or she should be expelled.  She was neither reprimanded nor censored for her deeply ingrained bias.  The only consequence of her bigotry has been an innocuous resolution against hate speech.  She has not been removed from any Congressional committees.

And now of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is calling on all advertisers to drop Fox News until the network fires hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson due to comments by both hosts that CAIR called “Islamophobic.”  This is sharia and how Islam conquers and controls.

While Iranian women rip the hijabs from their heads in defiant protest of oppressive Islamic law, our Congress changed a 181-year law to allow Muslim women to wear the hijab. Ilhan Omar’s district in Minnesota is where almost all of the 70,000 imported Somali immigrants were located by Obama.  That district was recently identified by the FBI as America’s terrorist capital and their Congresswoman is calling for the dissolution of America’s Homeland Security.  The Muslim Brotherhood has a plan for world domination and North America is their next target.

Oaths Sworn on Koran

None of the Muslims in Congress have sworn allegiance to the Constitution on the Bible.  This tradition of being sworn into office to swear on the Bible is because our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, states that our rights are given to us by the God of the Bible. Anyone who swears on any other book, like the Koran, is swearing an illegitimate oath.  Congressmen Andre Carson (D-IN) and Keith Ellison (D-MN) both used the Koran.  Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) took their oaths of office on the Koran.

The reason their oath is illegitimate is that the book upon which they swore teaches that the only acceptable religion is Islam, and they can lie (Taqiya) in order to advance Islam. When they swear on the Koran they are lying, knowing that the law of Islam does not allow freedom of religion.

Fox Muslim Attacks Pirro

Hufsa Kamal is a Pakistani American, born in England and raised in Tennessee. She is a producer for Bret Baier on Fox News, and has a long history of vicious attacks on conservatives including Michelle Malkin, Candace Owens, Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk.

She took to twitter to excoriate Judge Jeanine for asking Speaker Pelosi if Ilhan Omar’s allegiance is to the Constitution or the Koran, and claimed that many Muslims work at the Fox Network.

The Gateway Pundit exposed this story and listed many of Hufsa Kamal’s vile tweets. 

Fox found it necessary to condemn Pirro’s remarks and said they have “addressed the matter” with Pirro. It appears that Fox will continue to cave to sharia.

New Hires at Fox

Former Speaker Paul Ryan and Formula One Group executive chairman Chase Carey will join Rupert Murdoch, Lachlan Murdoch, and Jacques Nasser as members of the powerful Fox board.  Paul Ryan is married to Janna Little a liberal, left wing progressive, anti-Constitutional, big government George Soros supporter who voted for Barack Hussein Obama twice.  Ryan was the VP candidate with neo-con Trotskyite and pro-abort, Willard Mitt Romney in 2012.  During his time as Speaker of the House, he fought President Trump at every turn, and it became obvious he was pro-amnesty and pro-open borders. 

Donna Brazile is joining Fox News as a contributor.  She was the former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.  When former Fox host Megyn Kelly asked Brazile about passing debate questions to Hillary Clinton so she’d be one-up during debates against Donald Trump, she blatantly lied to Kelly.  Now she’s going to work for the very network she lied to.

The Jew Who Died for Ilhan Omar

Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism belies the fact that if not for a Jew who gave his life, she may not be in America and in politics.  Lawrence Freedman went to Somalia in 1992 as part of the U.S. led relief effort to help relocate tens of thousands of Somali refugees to escape starvation, famine and civil war that turned Somalia into a failed state in the early 1990s.

Freedman was a U.S. Army veteran from Vietnam, and original member of the Green Beret. He reached the rank of sergeant major and eventually became an instructor.  In 1990 he joined the Central Intelligence Agency and in 1992 he was sent as part of an advance team to prepare the way for American troops in Somalia.  On December 23, two weeks after the troops had arrived, Freedman became the first American killed as part of the relief effort.  Thousands of Somali refugees who live in Omar’s district had their freedom and security paid for with the blood of American soldiers – 22 of them, including Lawrence Freedman. 

Conclusion

The Number One Cable Network is no longer teetering toward the left but is now an active part of it.  Brazile’s arrival in the aftermath of Fox News suspending Judge Jeanine Pirro, all for asking questions about radical Somalian activist Ilhan Omar on her “Justice” show, is not only a slap in the face to Pirro and her many followers, but a slap in the face to the network’s many conservative viewers.  Link

Internal Rot

By J. D. Pendry

“America will never be destroyed from the outside.  If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”  Abraham Lincoln

Occasionally, I look back through the Bunker archives to see what I was on my mind back then.  The archives are a journal of sorts.  Sometimes I’m surprised when something I wrote 15 years ago is as relevant today, or maybe even more so, than it was originally.  In 2005, I wrote Internal Rot for JD’s Bunker, the ancestor of American Journal.  Relevant today?  You decide.

I was passing a semi pulling tandem trailers when I clawed at the CD button to switch off the screeching talk radio.  The cab of my pick-up truck filled with Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.  Yes Beethoven!  You gotta a problem with that!?  In my rearview mirror, I saw a woman yakking on a cell phone.  She was following me so close that I could not see the headlights on her minivan.  After passing the semi, I flipped on my right turn signal indicator.  The semi driver blinked his headlights at me and I started to drift back into the slow lane.  Before I completed the lane change, Ms. mini-van was half a truck length past me.  She glared, a furrowed brow showing above her designer sunglasses and appeared to mouth something about my dear departed mother.  A Kerry/Edwards campaign sticker adorned the back window of her van.  Tailgating her was a bright red pick-up truck with a “W-04” sticker in the window.  Just as close behind him was an irritable looking driver, with a 10 O’clock 2 O’clock white knuckled grip on the steering wheel of a small SUV.  The bumper sticker proclaimed, “Jesus is my copilot.”  He’d be safer riding with me I thought.  Concluding that 3 of 5 rush hour drivers belong in an insane asylum, I slouched and focused on the music.

A friend of mine, and my historical authority of choice sent me an email about one of my recent columns.  His lesson for me was that throughout human history great societies have fallen because they first destroyed themselves from within.  Internal rot is the descriptive term he used adding that when the failing society is at its lowest point, outside forces will end it.

My commute and screeching talk radio illustrate where we are.  We’ve lost civility and are so intent on demonizing one another for our beliefs that we can’t focus on our roots or a common purpose – freedom and securing our country for example.  If you still have a 2004 Presidential campaign sticker on your car, you are part of the problem.  You’re trapping us in time, keeping us hostage to emotions and diverting us from important issues – sounds like a politician’s resume doesn’t it.  And, if your copilot is supposed to put you above the fray, your actions should demonstrate that you are.

The most basic leadership principle is being the example.  The led reflect the example of the leaders.  My drive home shows Americans following the example of those we elected to Congress to lead us, bolstered by senseless and endless Red State, Blue State political polls and media nonsense – liberal and conservative alike.  A look at the 911 hearings, steroid follies and recent cabinet confirmation hearings should be enough to convince anyone that the most destructive combination in America is an egomaniacal politician and a television camera.  It’s more obvious each day that you and I – Mr. and Ms. liberal Democrat, conservative Republican and proclaimed Independent – have elected and sent to Washington a collection of people not concerned about the problems facing our country.  Their concern instead is power at all costs.  When political leaders focus more on obtaining power and destroying political opposition than they do solving problems – which seems to be the focus of our currently non-functioning political system – the result is political rot.  We are watching the decay of what is supposed to be the world’s greatest representative republic.

Moral relativism has saturated our society.  Many believe there are no absolutes when it comes to right or wrong.  They see behavior in shades of gray in conflict with others who view behavioral absolutes of black and white.  The chasm between the two grows.  Many manmade laws of our country are a product of moral relativism.  They contradict the Judeo-Christian values on which our country was founded and often the laws of nature itself.

Moral relativism is why we are not raising our children properly.  Recent examples of out of control children and adolescents in schools demonstrate that.  We pump our kids up with MTV and junk food then try to calm them with Prozac and Ritalin.  We send them to school dressed as thugs and prostitutes.  We connect their brain housing groups to MP3 players and cell phones.  We baby sit them in Internet chat rooms.  They don’t know math, science, history or current events.  Is this how we prepare them to confront the most complicated and dangerous world in human history – and to preserve our country?  More likely, we are preparing them to accept what follows the rot.

We have the power to fix what is wrong – you and I.  We can lop off rotten limbs and cauterize wounds, but once the roots of our way of life – our political system, our morality and how we raise our children – begin to rot, we might consider how soon we’ll need to start learning Chinese.
