The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) has published a guide which asserts that hard work, the nuclear family and Christianity itself are negative forms of “whiteness” that should be reconsidered because they are “oppressive”.

Yes, really.

The (NMAAHC) is a Smithsonian Institution museum located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The museum’s guide to “whiteness & white culture” lists examples of “white dominant culture” that have become “normalized” in America and are used to prevent people of color from gaining institutional power.

These examples include;

– Rugged individualism
– Self-reliance
– The nuclear family, with a mother and a father and 2.3 children
– Objective, rational, linear thinking
– Hard work
– Delayed gratification
– Respect for authority
– Following time schedules
– Christianity as the norm
– Planning for the future
– English common law justice
– Property rights
– Being polite

That list is by no means exhaustive either. They detail a number of other perfectly healthy examples of what builds a strong society, suggesting that all of these things are oppressive in some way and are linked to white nationalism and white supremacy.

Perhaps someone should inform the museum that 40-45% of people in Africa are Christians, the vast majority of whom are black. Would they agree that Christianity and the nuclear family are malevolent forms of “whiteness” that need to be abolished?

This is yet another clear sign that the entire Black Lives Matter movement, which is stridently supported by virtually every major cultural, media and corporate institution in America, is based on completely demolishing everything that made America great in the first place.

Donald Trump Jnr. responded to the guide by tweeting, “These aren’t “white” values. They’re American values that built the world’s greatest civilization. They help you succeed here, no matter your color. So make no mistake, Biden’s radicals aren’t coming for “whites,” they’re coming for the entire American way of life.”

WAKE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA: PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO IMPLEMENT PRO-LGBTQ/BLACK LIVES MATTER CURRICULUM IN CLASSROOMS

Wake County Public School System has launched a website with Black Lives Matter resources for teachers to use in the classroom and parents to use at home that will undoubtedly turn children into Marxists.

Wake County, the county that is home to North Carolina’s state capital, Raleigh, is the second largest metropolitan area in the state after Charlotte-Mecklenburg. However, the school district is vast, expansive, and highly influential.

The website, titled Racial Equity Resources for WCPSS Educators & Staff, is filled with Marxist Black Lives Matter propaganda and promotes such ideologies as Critical Race Theory, intersectionality, and identity politics. One of its primary purposes is to promote “equity” — not to be confused with “equality.”

The use of the Marxist term “equity” is not the same as “equality.” “Equality” means the equal application and enforcement of the law and policies, while “equity” means the equal outcome of law enforcement. In other words, it’s the exact opposite of equal application.

The site is filled with references to the “unjust killings” of several black people, including Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. The website pushes teaching children about race from a “child’s perspective” and then links to and encourages teachers to learn from a CNN propaganda video about racism by homosexual anchor, Anderson Cooper.

It then shows a video that was publicized by Millbrook High School students in Wake County, NC that continues to advance the notion of white privilege, white supremacy, and systemic racial injustices.

Young people have an important role in confronting racism and prejudice. They often bring a voice of moral clarity to these complex issues.

In the following video, some members of the Millbrook High School student government share an excellent example of what it means to live-out our core beliefs of valuing a diverse school community that is inviting, respectful, inclusive, flexible, and supportive. What starts here changes everything!

But worst of all, most of the resources linked to on the website link to another site called tolerance.org, which heavily promotes transgenderism, homosexuality, and other sexual aberrations.

Folks, this is now being implemented in North Carolina classrooms and is sponsored and promoted by your tax dollars. Are North Carolina parents going to be okay with this? Are they going to let this pot continue to boil with the frog in it? At what point does enough become enough and at what point are we going to demand better? Pushing this stuff down the throats of students is unacceptable. Wake Up!

Shortly after GOYA CEO Bob Unanue said that the U.S. was “blessed” to have a president such as Donald Trump, whom he also described as a “builder,” the cancel-culture mob on the radical progressive Left, such as self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), have called for a “GOYAWAY” boycott of GOYA Foods – the nation’s largest Hispanic owned company, which was founded by immigrants from Spain in the 1930s.

COMMUNIST CHINA & ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN DRAFT TRADE & MILITARY PARTNERSHIP

The New York Times says that this agreement “represents a major blow to the Trump administration’s aggressive policy toward Iran since abandoning the nuclear deal.”

However, they reveal the dishonesty of their own spin when they also say that the partnership was “first proposed by China’s leader, Xi Jinping, during a visit to Iran in 2016.”

Who was President of the United States in 2016?

In any case, here is yet another example, in somewhat different form from what we have been seeing lately, of the Leftist/jihadist alliance.

“Defying U.S., China and Iran Near Trade and Military Partnership,” by Farnaz Fassihi and Steven Lee Myers, New York Times, July 11, 2020:

Iran and China have quietly drafted a sweeping economic and security partnership that would clear the way for billions of dollars of Chinese investments in energy and other sectors, undercutting the Trump administration’s efforts to isolate the Iranian government because of its nuclear and military ambitions.

The partnership, detailed in an 18-page proposed agreement obtained by The New York Times, would vastly expand Chinese presence in banking, telecommunications, ports, railways and dozens of other projects. In exchange, China would receive a regular — and, according to an Iranian official and an oil trader, heavily discounted — supply of Iranian oil over the next 25 years.

The document also describes deepening military cooperation, potentially giving China a foothold in a region that has been a strategic preoccupation of the United States for decades. It calls for joint training and exercises, joint research and weapons development and intelligence sharing — all to fight “the lopsided battle with terrorism, drug and human trafficking and cross-border crimes.”

The partnership — first proposed by China’s leader, Xi Jinping, during a visit to Iran in 2016 — was approved by President Hassan Rouhani’s cabinet in June, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said last week….

If put into effect as detailed, the partnership would create new and potentially dangerous flash points in the deteriorating relationship between China and the United States.

It represents a major blow to the Trump administration’s aggressive policy toward Iran since abandoning the nuclear deal reached in 2015 by President Barack Obama and the leaders of six other nations after two years of grueling negotiations.

Once again, as in the first conversion of the great cathedral to a mosque, attempting to show the superiority and victory of Islam. All tourists will henceforth be required to demonstrate their recognition of and respect for that.

“Turkey to cover Holy Icons in Hagia Sophia with ‘special technology,'” by Paul Antonopoulos, Greek City Times, July 11, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The declaration of Hagia Sophia becoming a mosque has caused a shock all over the world, and it appears the only ones in glee are Turks and their media outlets.

Yeni Şafak spoke of a “resurrection” of Hagia Sophia and Türkiye reported on its front page “The suffering of the Hagia Sophia mosque is over. The 86-year-old chains are broken.” Sabah newspaper published the headline “Nostalgia for Hagia Sophia is over.”

According to Hürriyet, Hagia Sophia will be open for prayer but also for tourists who want to visit it. They said that icons and mosaics will be covered with special technology and lighting.

Specifically, special curtains will be used during Islamic prayer, while carpets will be placed on the floor which will be illuminated to darken the space and not show paintings.

This means that visitors to Hagia Sophia will have to take off their shoes to enter the temple….

 

OHIO COUNTY CREATES HOTLINE FOR NEIGHBORS TO REPORT NON-MASK WEARERS

BY LUIS MIGUEL

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/36373-ohio-county-creates-hotline-for-neighbors-to-report-non-mask-wearers;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Cuyahoga County, Ohio, has rolled out a hotline for residents to snitch on those of their neighbors who do not wear masks, in line with an executive order by Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican, mandating masks in public when “social distancing” is not possible.

County Executive Armond Budish made the announcement, telling the people of Cuyahoga that individuals who witness others not wearing a mask in public spaces should make complaints to the new hotline or file on a website titled “Mask Experience.”

Once a complaint has been filed, county workers contact the subject of the complaint, whether it’s an individual or business, to let them know. The complaints are also forwarded to the Board of Health and the relevant village or city. “This is not intended to be going out and finding people not wearing masks. We want people to wear their masks…. We want people to do it voluntarily,” Budish said.

Yet the warnings about non-compliance coming from leaders make it sound anything but voluntary. Repeated complaints or cases of “non-compliance” could bring an investigation or even charges by authorities. 

Budish maintained that while police may enforce the order, “There’s not enough people in law enforcement throughout the county to track down people, chase them around and figure out who we can go after for not wearing a mask.” Nevertheless, Budish held that municipalities and police departments could use proactive policing to enforce the order if they want to.

While residents can make their complaints about neighbors to the Board of Health or their local governments directly, Budish said the hotline will better allow the Board of Health to focus on contact tracing and testing instead of mask enforcement.

The Board of Health has the authority to have local authorities reach out if businesses repeatedly ignore the mask order. Violation of the order is a second-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.

DeWine signed the mask order on July 8. It applies to Cuyahoga, Butler, Franklin, Hamilton, Huron, Montgomery, and Trumbull counties. The governor pointed to a high level of coronavirus spread as justification for the decision. “We’re not looking to see a lot of people arrested. That’s not the idea at all. The idea is this is the norm. This is what is needed for Ohioans to stay safe,” DeWine said.

According to the order, residents of the targeted counties must wear “face coverings” when:

(a) In any indoor location that is not a residence

(b) Outdoors and unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet or more from individuals who are not members of their households; or 

(c) Waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, a taxi, a private care service, or a ride sharing vehicle.

The order does come with some exceptions, such as when a person is seated and actively consuming food or beverage in a restaurant or bar (as though a virus knows to stop spreading just because a person is eating) or when someone is talking to a hearing-impaired person who must see the other person’s mouth to understand them.

The narrative from the establishment has been to have everyone wear masks anywhere in public. Everyone from Joe Biden to Goldman Sachs to Hollywood celebrities is advocating for mask-wearing, mocking and shaming anyone who refuses to conform.

In states, such as Florida, that have not yet imposed statewide mask mandates, counties have taken it upon themselves to do so. Even First Lady Melania Trump has urged Americans to cover their faces.

All this despite the fact that studies have failed to prove that masks stop the spread of infectious diseases. Moreover, research has shown that mask-wearing helps spread disease because people often contaminate their hands through frequent face touching when wearing masks.

Already, there is a movement to make masks a permanent fixture of life. An article at Fast Company, which looks at the possibilities of “high-tech” masks in the future declares, “Masks are probably here to stay. But they’ll need to evolve.”

An article at the Washington Post is titled “Masks Are Here to Stay, Even After Covid Goes Away.” Another WAPO article says “Masks are here to stay and they’re quickly becoming a way to express ourselves.”

The website Newsleaders proclaims, “Masks are here to stay; get used to it.”

Mask-wearing isn’t about health. It’s about the elites seeing who they can get to submit.

 

TRUMP HHS ENDS OBAMACARE RULE THAT INCLUDED ABORTION UNDER “HEALTHCARE”

BY WARREN MASS

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/health-care/item/36371-trump-hhs-ends-obamacare-rule-that-included-abortion-under-healthcare;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a statement about ending a definition issued by the Obama administration regarding Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or “ObamaCare”). The Obama administration had redefined sex discrimination to include termination of pregnancy (abortion) and gender identity, which it defined as “one’s internal sense of gender, which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female.”

Under the revised HHS rules, abortion and “gender identity” will no longer be protected under anti-discrimination laws. Though the Obama-era rules have not been put into practice since the last day of 2016, they were still on the books. With the latest HHS ruling, they are now erased.

The Obama administration rules, issued in 2016, could have forced medical workers to help abort unborn babies. It also would have protected so-called transgender individuals from sex discrimination based on their “identify” rather than the traditional biological definition of gender as determined at birth.

Roger Severino, director of the Office for Civil Rights at HHS, has reassured the public that the changes will not affect the agency’s protections: “HHS respects the dignity of every human being, and as we have shown in our response to the pandemic, we vigorously protect and enforce the civil rights of all to the fullest extent permitted by our laws as passed by Congress. We are unwavering in our commitment to enforcing civil rights in healthcare.” 

The Obama administration, however, decided to add its own definitions to certain federal statutes, such as Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) stating that it wanted to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in certain federally funded programs.

However, noted the HHS release, on December 31, 2016, a federal court enjoined the Obama administration’s attempt to redefine sex discrimination in its 2016 rule. The court concluded that the administration’s provisions were likely contrary to applicable civil rights law, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the Administrative Procedure Act. On October 15, 2019, the federal court issued a final judgment, and vacated and remanded these provisions as unlawful.

HHS noted that this final ruling is binding on HHS, which has not been able to enforce these provisions since December 2016, and the provisions have been vacated since October 2019.

Therefore, HHS has eliminated certain provisions of the 2016 Rule that exceeded the scope of the authority delegated by Congress in Section 1557. HHS will enforce Section 1557 by returning to the government’s interpretation of sex discrimination according to the plain meaning of the word “sex” as male or female and as determined by biology. The 2016 Rule declined to recognize “sexual orientation” as a protected category under the ACA, and HHS will abide by that judgment.

 

 

PROSECUTORS MAY NOT GET TRUMP TAX RECORDS UNTIL AFTER ELECTION, EXPERTS SAY

BY JAN WOLFE

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York City prosecutors are very likely to obtain President Donald Trump's tax 
returns after a major U.S. Supreme Court ruling, but it may not happen before the Nov. election.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York City prosecutors are very likely to obtain President Donald Trump's tax returns after a major U.S. Supreme Court ruling, but it may not happen before the Nov. 3 election if he argues in lower courts as expected that their request was too broad and made in bad faith, legal experts said.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is seeking eight years of Trump's business and personal tax returns and other financial documents as part of a criminal investigation involving a grand jury into the Republican president and the Trump Organization, his family's real estate business.

"I believe the district attorney and the grand jury will get the requested documents, but not right away," said Jessica Roth, a professor at Cardozo School of Law in New York and a former federal prosecutor. "We have many weeks and months of further litigation ahead."

The Republican president, a wealthy real estate developer who refused to give up his holdings in the family business after taking office, has fought hard to keep details of his finances secret. Trump has refused to release his tax returns as other presidents have done and sued to try to block enforcement of subpoenas by Democratic lawmakers and prosecutors for his financial records.

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against Trump's bid to block Vance's subpoena to Trump's accounting firm Mazars USA for the financial records, rejecting the president's claim of absolute presidential immunity from criminal proceedings.

But the justices sent the matter back to lower courts for further litigation, giving Trump the opportunity to object to the subpoena on other grounds.

The ruling, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, said Trump "can challenge the subpoena as an attempt to influence the performance of his official duties. And he can argue that compliance with a particular subpoena would impede his constitutional duties."

"We're evaluating the appropriate next course of action," Jay Sekulow, Trump's personal lawyer, said on Friday.

Trump could argue that the subpoena is too burdensome or was issued in bad faith because of political motivations, said George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, who testified last year as a Republican witness in House of Representatives Trump impeachment hearings.

'REALLY HARD ARGUMENT'

Trump is unlikely to convince a court that the subpoena is too burdensome because it seeks information from Mazars, a third party, and not the president himself, said Harry Sandick, a former federal prosecutor in Manhattan.

"Burden is a really hard argument to make," Sandick said.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero, who is presiding over the case, said last October he had seen little evidence of political bias in Vance's pursuit of the financial records.

Roth said evidence that has been public, including congressional testimony by Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, provides a "reasonable basis" for Vance's investigation. Cohen told lawmakers that Trump had inflated and deflated certain assets on financial statements between 2011 and 2013 in part to reduce his real estate taxes.

A loss for Trump before Marrero could still be appealed to the Manhattan-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, likely delaying production of the documents until after the presidential election in which Trump is seeking a second four-year term in office against Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

Sandick said he expects that prosecutors will obtain the tax returns from Mazars in late 2020 or early 2021.

Roth said prosecutors could get hold of the documents by November if Marrero rules quickly, which he has shown a tendency to do so far, and his ruling is quickly upheld on appeal.

Even if the financial records are turned over before the election, they likely would not be made public quickly barring an illegal leak to media, Sandick said. Under U.S. law, grand jury materials must be kept secret, though they could eventually end up in publicly available court filings if a criminal case is brought in the investigation against Trump or someone else.

"This process is going to be frustrating for many members of the public," Sandick said. "But it is just the price we pay for having a legal system that lets people make arguments."

Vance's investigation was launched after disclosures of hush payments to two women who said they had past sexual relationships with Trump, pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal - relationships he has denied.

SOROS FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES IT IS “DOUBLING DOWN” ON FUNDING “BLACK LED JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONS”

Soros Foundation Announces It Is 'Doubling Down' On Funding “Black-led Justice Organizations”

$220 million in grants from Open Society as it declares this is “the moment we’ve been investing in for the last 25 years”.

BY STEVE WATSON

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

In an interview with the The New York Times, Open Society Foundations President Patrick Gaspard announced that the organisation, headed by billionaire George Soros, is to “double down” on funding “black-led justice organizations”.

The interview was accompanied by a press release from the Open Society declaring that “The largest share of this support—$150 million—will be through a set of five-year grants to Black-led justice organizations that helped to create and now sustain the momentum towards racial equality.”

“Open Society’s response reflects our conviction that real progress requires sustained support over many years and letting leaders accountable to impacted communities shape the path forward.” the release adds.

It also notes that another $70 million will be allocated to “more immediate efforts to advance racial justice,” which include efforts  to “reimagine” policing.

Gaspard noted that the recent uprising in the US and across the world is “the moment we’ve been investing in for the last 25 years.”

“There is this call for justice in Black and brown communities, an explosion of not just sympathy but solidarity across the board,” he claimed, adding that “it’s time to double down.”

“And we understood we can place a bet on these activists — Black and white — who see this as a moment of not just incrementalism, but whole-scale reform,” Gaspard asserted.

Gaspard directly referenced the Black Lives Matter movement, staying that “we need these moments to be sustained. If we’re going to say ‘Black lives matter,’ we need to say ‘Black organizations and structures matter.’”

The Open Society’s bold admission will raise eyebrows given that just weeks ago anyone suggesting Soros’ foundations were providing financial assistance to BLM agitators was labelled a ‘conspiracy theorist’:

Indeed, Soros himself denied that his organisation was providing any funding to protests where violence occurred.



 

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS THE PARTY OF SLAVERY & SEGREGATION

Politics is compromising, dirty business, at best, and we aren’t flag wavers for any political party. None of them are godly, to say the least. But truth in history is important.

The Republican Party was formed largely on an anti-slavery platform. It emerged in 1854 to combat the expansion of slavery into American territories and new states. The theme was “Free Soil, Free Labor, Free Men,” with “Free Soil” referring to granting western land to farmers.

“In 1865, the Republicans passed the Thirteenth Amendment banning slavery.”
The first Republican Party president was Abraham Lincoln, who led the Union’s war against the Southern Confederacy, a war that was not wholly about slavery, but slavery was a fundamental aspect.

In 1865, the Republicans passed the Thirteenth Amendment banning slavery.

In 1868, Republicans passed the Fourteenth Amendment granting citizenship to former slaves and equal protection under the law.

Under President Ulysses Grant (1868-1876), Republicans, backed by federal troops, sought to “Reconstruct” the South and enforce federal laws granting liberties to blacks. They formed “Union Leagues” and fought the Ku Klux Klan and other segregationist forces.

In 1872, the first seven black members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives were Republicans.

In 1873, Democrats won control of the House of Representatives at the federal level and formed “Redeemer” coalitions that gradually gained control over the state governments in the South.

In 1877, federal troops were removed from the Southern states and the era of Reconstruction ended. Democratic-controlled southern governments enacted segregation policies, called “Jim Crow Laws, which effectively disenfranchised blacks and segregated all aspects of society. “The region then became the Solid South, giving overwhelming majorities of its electoral votes and Congressional seats to the Democrats through 1964” (“History of the United States Republican Party,” Wikipedia).

“The timing of the agreement was prompted by the presidential election of 1876 between Democrat Samuel B. Tilden, governor of New York, and Republican Rutherford B. Hayes, governor of Ohio. When the votes were counted, Tilden led Hayes by one vote in the Electoral College. But the Republicans accused the Democrats of voter fraud, saying they intimidated African-American voters in three Southern states, Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina, and prevented them from voting, thus fraudulently handing the election to Tilden.

“Congress set up a bipartisan commission made up of five U.S. representatives, five senators and five Supreme Court justices, with a balance of eight Republicans and seven Democrats. They struck a deal: The Democrats agreed to allow Hayes to become president and to respect the political and civil rights of African-Americans if the Republicans would remove all remaining federal troops from Southern states. This effectively ended the era of Reconstruction in the South and consolidated Democratic control, which lasted until the mid-1960s, nearly a century.

“Hayes kept his side of the bargain and removed all federal troops from Southern states within two months of his inauguration. But Southern Democrats reneged on their part of the deal.

“With the federal presence gone, disenfranchisement of African-American voters in the South became widespread and Southern states passed segregationist laws governing virtually all aspects of society--called Jim Crow--that remained intact until the Civil Rights Act of 1964, passed during the administration of President Lyndon B.Johnson. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 followed a year later, finally codifying into law the promises made by Southern Democrats in the Compromise of 1877” (“The Compromise of 1877 Set the Stage for the Jim Crow Era,” ThoughtCo.com).

The following is excerpted a speech by Dinesh D’Souza, Stanford University, March 2019 [web reference]

The fascists [in Europe], for their part, were deriving and drawing ideas from the United States. This is not known, and I want to give a single example which I have dramatized in my movie The Death of a Nation. ...

Leading members of Nazi Germany, 1935, are in a room and they are drafting the so-called Nuremberg laws. These are the laws that make Jews into second class citizens, and they do three things: they segregate Jews into ghettos, they forbid intermarriage between Jews and other Germans, and they condone confiscation of Jewish property. In other words, state-sponsored discrimination against Jews. The Nazis are sitting there, and basically they are saying, ‘We want to make these laws, but there is no international precedent for them. Nobody has done this type of thing.’ Then one of the Nazis who had studied in the United States said, ‘Actually, gentlemen, you are wrong. Somebody has beaten us to the punch. The Democratic party in the United States has laws that do all of the three things that we want. The Jim Crow laws of the American south have segregation, anti-miscegenation laws outlawing intermarriage, and they condone state-sponsored discrimination. All we have to do is take the laws of the Democratic party, cross out the word Black, write in the word Jew, and we are home free.’ What am I saying here? I’m not saying that the Nazis got a parallel idea. I’m saying that actual Nazis had in their hands the blueprints of the Democratic laws and they used it to create the Nuremberg laws, and this fact has been completely suppressed in progressing historiography in the United States.

Now I said the Nazis were talking about the Democratic laws, and you might be thinking, ‘Democratic laws? Aren’t you talking about the southern laws?’ See, the Nazis actually knew something that we don’t know, namely, every segregation law in the United States, from the 1880s to the 1950s was passed by a Democratic legislature, signed by a Democratic governor, enforced by Democratic officials, and there is not a single exception to this rule. ... I want to pull back and say just a word about slavery. When I speak on campuses, it is not atypical to tell students that the Democratic party was the party of slavery, and I say it so matter of factly that the students are a little puzzled because they have always heard that slavery was done by the white man, or by America. And I say, Look, America didn’t do anything. Some Americans did it, and other Americans stopped them. We need to distinguish who did it, and who did it was the Democratic party in the north and the south. That’s the key. The whole idea of knocking Confederate monuments is essentially a strategic stage tactic to fool you into thinking that the slavery debate was north-south. But Abraham Lincoln knew better. When he identified the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the four bad guys of slavery, he mentioned Roger Taney, who wrote the Dred Scott decision. He was a southerner [Democrat] from Maryland. Then Lincoln mentions Franklin Pierce, the former President from New Hampshire, northern Democrat; James Buchanan from Pennsylvania, northern Democrat; and Stephen Douglas, Lincoln’s supreme antagonist, from Illinois, northern Democrat. So three of the four pro-slavery champions are northerners.

Inevitably when I tell students this, the following happens. Some professor ... stands up and says, ‘Mr. D’Souza, you are misleading the audience by pointing a finger of blame solely at one party, whereas we all know that there was plenty of blame to go around.’ Very interesting statement. First of all it retreats from the position that the Republicans are the bad guys. It now tries, sort of with a squid-like cloud of obfuscation, to spread the blame so broadly so that no one really knows what’s going on. So it is really important at this time to unfurl what I call ‘the crushing fact.’ It is the fact that settles the argument at one blow. This is the time for me to point out that in 1860, the year before the Civil War, no Republican owned a slave. Think about this for a moment. I’m not saying that no Republican leader owned a slave. I’m saying no Republican in the United States owned a slave. ... All you have to do is name one Republican who owned a slave, and I would have to take this back. And yet from the time I made this statement well over two years ago not a single valid counter-example has surfaced. Several months ago I got an email from a demographer at the University of Michigan who said, “Dinesh, I’ve been working this. I’ve got you. Ulysses S. Grant inherited a slave on his wife’s side.’ I said, Well, that is an impressive riposte. I need to point out to you that at the time this occurred, Ulysses S. Grant was a Democrat. He became a Republican later.

What am I getting at? We have a really strange phenomenon. If you look at what’s going on now, you have Democrats, on the left, pointing the finger of racism at the very people who fought racism from the beginning of this country’s history, while suppressing the fact that the actual racism came from their party. This is not just about slavery. The Democrats were the party of slavery, of segregation, of founding the Ku Klux Klan, of reviving the Ku Klux Klan, of racial terrorism, and of opposition to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. The opposition to the civil rights act of 1964, the voting rights act of 1965, the fair housing bill of 1968 came mainly from the Democratic party, and that’s a fact.

Faced with this crushing history, we have a puzzle. First of all, the very guys who have poisoned the waters are now showing up pretending to be the water commissioner. They did it! They have never admitted it. They have never apologized for it. They haven’t paid one penny of restitution for it. And yet they presume to lecture the rest of us who are completely innocent on this score of being the real culprits. This is really funny. My wife, Debby, is Latina. Her father is Venezuelan, her mother Mexican, and we were at Dartmouth: an east Indian and Latina. And a bunch of white guys were screaming at us, ‘Racist!’ What is this, Saturday Night Live! And this is an Ivy League college.

I want to address one final point. This is a very important point for the Left. It is the idea that the two parties switched sides. ... The main thrust of the argument is that racist Dixiecrats (those who voted against the civil rights acts) all became Republicans. If true, this would vindicate the idea that the Democrats may have once been the bad guys but now the bad guys have sort of moved over. The beauty of this kind of statement is the fact that it is empirical. It’s not one of those, ‘Who’s to say what’s true?’ No, all you have to do is do a web search for ‘Dixiecrat’ and then you count how many of the racist Dixiecrats became Republican. The correct answer, which I will tell you now, is two. In the House, one guy Albert Watson, and in the Senate, one guy Strom Thurmond, and all the other racist Dixiecrats lived and died in the Democratic party. They are lionized to this day. There are buildings in Washington D.C. named after them. So this notion of a party switch is a big lie.

The racists stayed in the Democratic party. Their tactics shifted over the years. Where does this leave us today? Very sadly, some of these terrible things from history--bigotry, a fascist streak--we still have it in America. But where is it coming from? People say, ‘Trump’s the fascist. He hates democracy. He won’t tolerate dissent.’ I’m thinking, ‘If Trump is a fascist and he won’t tolerate dissent, how come you are dissenting? Trump is bashed on every platform every minute of the day. He is bashed on the Emmys. Broadway shows are interrupted to bash Trump. If this was Mussolini he would send a bunch of goons and beat those guys up and that would be the end of that. That’s how dictators actually behave. I saw Cher complaining that Trump beat her up on Twitter. on Twitter! That being said, there is a streak of bullying and intimidation and intolerance. I would argue that simple empirical evidence shows that it is coming from the Left.

SEATTLE COUNCILWOMAN KSHAMA SAWANT: WE “WILL NOT STOP UNTIL WE OVERTHROW” CAPITALISM, “REPLACE IT WITH” SOCIALISM

Kansara: Councilwoman Kshama Sawant is a Maoist

SEATTLE, Wash. — Video is circulating of Seattle Councilwoman Kshama Sawant declaring during a city council meeting that she and her colleagues wish to “dismantle” capitalism and replace it with “a socialist world.”

Sawant made her remarks after the city council passed 7-2 what is known as the “JumpStart Tax,” a payroll tax on the city’s largest corporations with at least $7 million in annual payroll, which includes the headquarters of Amazon.

Referring to capitalism as racist and sexist, as well as “deeply oppressive,” she vowed to come after Amazon founder and President Jeff Bezos if he gets in their way of carrying out their socialist plans.

“I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class,” Sawant began. “If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to beat you. And we will not stop there.”

“Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax,” she explained. “We are preparing the ground for a different kind of society, and if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it.”

Sawant then outlined her plan to overthrow the system of capitalism with a socialist world.

“[W]e are coming for you and your rotten system,” she warned. “We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism, this police state. We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it and replace it with a world based instead on solidarity, genuine democracy and equality: a socialist world.”

Socialism is defined as “a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”

“In a purely socialist system, all legal production and distribution decisions are made by the government, and individuals rely on the state for everything from food to healthcare,” Investopedia outlines. “The government determines the output and pricing levels of these goods and services.”

“Socialist ideals include production for use, rather than for profit; an equitable distribution of wealth and material resources among all people; no more competitive buying and selling in the market; and free access to goods and services,” it states. “Or, as an old socialist slogan describes it, ‘From each according to ability, to each according to need.'”

Countries currently living under socialist or communist systems include Cuba, Venezuela, China and Vietnam.

 

TRUMP ANNOUNCES WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION WITHDRAWAL

In a welcome announcement, President Trump indicated last week that he had begun the year-long process of getting out of the World Health Organization. He had threatened to do so and withheld funds from the WHO in April, after it was revealed that the organization had helped to cover up China’s deliberately misleading claims about the COVID-19 Wuhan virus. After an investigation exposed China’s irresponsibility and deceit, President Trump said in a statement, “China has total control over the World Health Organization.” Action Items: 1.)
