Current Events & Trends Iraq pushes back against ISIS, regains some ground

An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/ about Iraq. This follows this post about police. For a free magazine subscription or to get the books recommended for free click HERE! or call 1-888-886- 8632.

“‘The liberation of Tikrit was carried out by the efforts of the Iraqi army and police, public mobilization units, tribal forces and the people of Tikrit city,’ Mr. Abadi [i.e., Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi] said on state television. ‘It was carried out under air cover and concentrated bombardment by the Iraqi air force, army air force and the international coalition against the terrorists of ISIS’” (Matt Bradley and Julian Barnes, “Iraq Recaptures Tikrit From Islamic State,” The Wall Street Journal, March 31, 2015) .
At the point where the Iraqi army started to stall, the United States began air strikes to aid in the operation. The Americans want the Iraqis to continue to partner with them instead of Iran and the Shiite militias it’s backing, as the latter could well lead to Iraq eventually coming under Iranian dominion.
As for the Islamic State, Tikrit was a major loss, but ISIS is able to regroup in various areas—and more terrorists in other places continue to declare loyalty to what they see as the restored Islamic caliphate.
Of course, the Middle East will continue to be a hotbed of military and religious strife. And the ongoing struggle will, despite breaks in hostility at times, lead in the end to the return of Jesus Christ. Finally, an ultimately just and wise Ruler will bring peace to the most contentious area of the world. (Source: The Wall Street Journal. )

“Low-Energy” Trump Survives As Immigration Ignored In First Debate

An interesting article from http://www.vdare.com about immigration and the presidential debate. This follows this post about Vicente Fernandez. Remember, “Amnesty” means ANY non-enforcement of existing immigration laws! This follows this comment and this post about how to Report Illegal Immigrants! Also, you can read two very interesting books HERE.

“Low-Energy” Trump Survives As Immigration Ignored In First Debate

This is why people hate the Main Stream Media. In the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, immigration was almost entirely ignored. Instead, moderator Lester Holt spent a huge amount of time on phony MSM “controversies” like emoting over the “birther” controversy, complaining about Donald Trump not releasing his taxes, and Trump’s supposed “sexism.” The Clinton Foundation, the continuing revelations about Hillary Clinton’s emails, and an actual examination of Hillary Clinton’s policies while Secretary of State were simply ignored.
Ironically, Trump’s best moments came in the first part of the debate, when he forced Clinton on the defensive on trade. Hillary Clinton was literally reduced to stuttering “that’s your opinion” like The Dude from the film The Big Lebowski. She also dodged on the Trans Pacific Partnership and refused to blame Obama for pushing this policy. Trump actually seemed better informed on policy. But moderator Lester Holt was content to let these issues slip by.
Trump obviously was trying to come off as presidential and restrained. However, he may have been a bit too clever. Though it was partially because of Holt’s slanted questioning, he was on the defensive for the entire night after a strong opening. More importantly, he let many opportunities pass him by. Every Republican in the country was screaming at the television for Trump to mention Hillary Clinton’s email scandal when she started making outrageous claims about the perfidy of Russian hackers. If Hillary believed that these hackers were so dangerous, why didn’t she use a secure server? But Trump let it pass.
Obviously, for immigration patriots, the bigger problem was that Trump allowed the same thing to happen with The National Question. When talking about the economy, foreign policy, trade, or wages, Trump should constantly bring back the discussion to immigration. He should especially force Clinton to defend her campaign’s outrageous declaration that the entire world has the right to immigrate to the United States.
Obviously, the MSM would rather spend the debates talking about things which make journalists feel sad rather than talk about real issues. Trump needs to go on the attack next time, force these issues into the debate and make this election a referendum on immigration.
Still, Trump didn’t self-destruct.  He clearly won the opening segment before being tripped up on Birtherism and his taxes. And he showed restraint, which might have been the smart move in the first debate. There are two more debates. Trump simply being on stage legitimized him here. If he’s going to be aggressive, he can do it in the next two.
It’s worth remembering Mitt Romney decisively won the first debate in 2012, but Obama was able to reverse the damage. And there was no clear-cut winner here like there was in that case.
Trump supporters, especially the #AltRight, might have raised expectations too much by constantly talking about Hillary Clinton’s health problems. Many seemed to expect Clinton to have a stroke on stage. (Ironically, it was Trump who seemed to be sniffling throughout the debate). Instead, she turned in a robotic but competent performance, albeit one enabled by not ever getting any hard questions.
We’ll see how the polls shape up over the next couple weeks. But Trump will need to take the gloves off in the next two debates. He needs to push popular wedge issues like Official English. And he needs to make sure immigration is at the center of his message.
He can’t talk about jobs, wages, education, national security, or even outreach to non-whites without talking about the massive invasion which is exacerbating every national problem.

Editorial: Will the NFL be a Debate Topic?


As we know, the NFL's viewing ratings have dropped substantially due to their players insulting the viewing audience. If it was a "freedom of conscience" issue, then those who support the police, such as when the Dallas Cowboys wanted to put a tribute sticker on their helmets, would also be allowed. This bias shows what the real issue in sports is.

Contrast this with what happened to Steve Clevenger in MLB. His pro-police comments caused him to be suspended indefinitely and that was also due to "freedom of conscience" on his part.

Therefore, the real issue is towing the politically correct line in sports. Contact the presidential candidates and the debate moderators and ask for their take on all this!




Ted Cruz Endorses Donald Trump: “If Hillary Wins Our Country is Devastated, I Have to Stop That”

An interesting story from www.lifenews.com about Ted Cruz! This follows this post about defunding Planned Parenthood. For two very interesting books click HERE.
Please follow me here.

Former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz made it official today and endorsed Donald Trump for president. Cruz announced the endorsement in a post on  his Facebook page:

This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.
In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.
I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.
Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.
The Supreme Court will be critical in preserving the rule of law. And, if the next administration fails to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then I hope that Republicans and Democrats will stand united in protecting our fundamental liberties.
Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.
A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.
SIGN THE PLEDGE: I Pledge to Vote for a Pro-Life Candidate for President
The biggest issue for pro-life voters this election is the future of the Surpeme Court and that’s Cruz’s first reason for supporting Trump.
Six key policy differences inform my decision. First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”
For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.
Pro-life voters also strongly oppose abortion-funding Obamacare that also rations health care. That’s also the second most important issue for Cruz and another reason to back Trump.
Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.
“If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country,” Cruz concluded. “My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.

Wknd Box Office: The Magnificent Seven, Queen of Katwe, Storks, The Hollars

Here is an interesting article from http://www.debbieschlussel.com/ reviewing some of the movies that came out over the past weekend. This follows this post about some of the movies from last week and THIS POST about some movies that have been released over the past few years that you might have missed! This all follows this post about guidelines to choosing good movies to watch yourself!

Wknd Box Office: The Magnificent Seven, Queen of Katwe, Storks, The Hollars

By Debbie Schlussel

Unfortunately, the best new movie in theaters today is very politically correct and racist (it kills off ALL of the White heroes). Even more unfortunate, there are themes of political correctness, anti-White racism, and/or Black supremacism running through virtually every new movie.

* The Magnificent Seven – Rated PG-13: The first thing you need to know about this very politically correct movie is that ALL three of the White Magnificent Seven members are killed off by the end of this movie. Only the minorities survive. Oh, and also, the movie’s villain is also White (as is his large band of mercenary thugs–where’s da diversity?), and he’s an evil businessman/real estate developer. Always gotta insert that gratuitous, hypocritical Hollywood faux-hate of capitalism in the plot line. Plus, this movie is incredibly violent and bloody–much more than I expected, especially for a PG-13 flick. Still, despite all of that, I mostly liked the movie. That’s also despite its running time of two hours and 12 minutes.
But would it have killed them to write a movie in which at least ONE of the White Magnificent Seven lives??? This movie gets the Colin Kaepernick Black Racist Seal of Approval.
There have been several remakes of what was originally Japanese director Akira Kurosawa’s truly magnificent “The Seven Samurai,” including a 1998 CBS TV series co-starring my high school friend Rick Worthy. But most Americans remember the best “remake” to be the original English language version, the 1960 “The Magnificent Seven” movie, in which a Mexican village requests the help of the White Magnificent Seven.
In this movie, a White town requests the help of a mostly minority Magnificent Seven–led by a Black guy (Denzel Washington) and also comprised of an American Indian, er . . . “Native American,” a Mexican, a Chinese dude, and three White guys (Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D’Onofrio. It’s unlikely that really would have happened in the 1800s Old West, the setting for this “update.”
Also, in this movie, there isn’t always stark good-versus-evil, at least at the beginning. Chris Pratt kills one or two gamblers who rip him off, and he shoots a guy’s ear off. (Of course, it’s a White member of the Magnificent Seven who does these things.) Though, this is before he joins the “Seven.”
The story: an evil White real estate developer from Sacramento (played by ultra-left-wing America-hater Peter Sarsgaard) terrorizes the people of a small town and murders some of them in cold blood–all because he wants their land at a cheap price. The wife of one of the men who is killed hires Denzel Washington and his band of six other men to come to town and fight off the real estate developer and his band of mostly White thugs (there is one exception–he has an American Indian thug, Denali, but other than that–the rest of his bad guys, which number in the hundreds, are all White).
The Magnificent Seven come to town and train the townspeople to shoot and fight. And then they help the people fight off the bad guys. But their battle is bloody, and they’ve been forewarned that many people will die.
As I watched the battle and saw the three White Magnificent Seven (plus the Chinese one) get killed, I thought, “Wow, there isn’t a lot of room for the sequel here.” But, then, I realized that White people are disposable, and they can be recast. My mind was also screaming . . .
White Magnificent Seven Lives Matter!
Just not in this racist, politically-correct movie.
Still, I love a good western, and this movie wasn’t bad as far as that goes–despite all the racist, PC baloney.
So I give it . . .
Watch the trailer . . .

* Queen of Katwe – Rated PG: Hmmm . . . since nearly half of the greatest chess players of all time were/are Jews, when I think of chess champions I think of Uganda. Don’t you? Of course, that’s the absurd conceit (and deceit) of this movie, even though the movie is ultimately uplifting after moving very slowly for the first half. Also, FYI, when I think of Uganda, I think of their late Muslim leader, Idi Amin, and the Muslim hostage-taking of Jews who were held and terrorized in Entebbe, NOT chess.
Also, I was horrified that a Disney movie aimed at and heavily marketed to kids–especially Black kids–repeatedly features a child prostitute who gets pregnant. And it doesn’t exactly look down on her and her exploits much. Walt Disney is turning over in his grave.
The movie goes out of its way to downplay, minimize, and whitewash the role of Christianity in the story. And, since mostly Americans and Brits play the main characters, they go out of their way to overdo their “Ugandan” accents, making it hard to understand them and what they are saying for most of the first half of the movie. The first half of the movie is also slow and boring, and the movie doesn’t really heat up and get interesting until half way through, when the chess competitions get going.
“Based on a real-life story,” this is about a Ugandan girl, Phiona Mutesi, who becomes Uganda’s first chess master, and ultimately plays and beats chess champions all over Uganda and internationally. She and the other kids in the movie live in an extremely poor ghetto of Katwe in Uganda. They are destitute. A local community organizer (really a man working for a local Christian church ministry) is a chess player and coach. He reaches out and teaches them chess. Ultimately they beat the stock Hollywood-cast snobby rich kids. But the star is Phiona. She is so good that she beats the top Ugandans and goes to international competitions. Her dream is to become a chess “master.”
Phiona’s father died, and her mother (Lupita Nyong’o) is a single mother because of that. She’s struggling to survive, and so she is skeptical of Phiona’s chess aspirations. Phiona’s sister is a teen prostitute who takes money for sex, dresses like a whore, and eventually becomes pregnant by one of the men. I was disappointed that this darkness (and other darkness–Phiona’s home, an old church, is completely flooded like a river and they lose everything) was in a Disney kids’ movie. It wasn’t necessary.
The coach, played by David Oyelowo, is actually a Christian minister, but you’d be hard-pressed to know that because–as I’ve noted–Disney mostly washed that out of this ultimately inspiring and uplifting story. The only hint of it is that in one scene you can see the van he drove has a barely-visible cross and the name “ministry” on it.
The kids in the movie are very cute and funny. And eventually the story is uplifting and inspires ambition. I liked that message of empowering one’s self and taking personal responsibility to get out of poverty. But, let’s be real: Uganda ain’t known for its chess champions, despite what the movie wants you to think.
Watch the trailer . . .

* Storks – Rated PG: This dumb, cockamamie “kids” movie was soooooo incredibly annoying. And the very stupid story looked like it was slapped together by a two-year-old (with apologies to two-year-olds for the comparison with the writers of this crappy waste of time). In an era–and in a year–when there are so many far-superior animated kids’ movies, this falls stunningly flat. It also highlights the lack of good, original story-telling that apparently befuddles so many in Hollywood. I was surprised at the silliness of this movie. Plus it is very slow and very boring. The animation is fine, but nothing outstanding. Just the basics that we’ve already come to expect, given today’s technology. Pixar this ain’t. Not even close.
The “story” (if you can call it that): storks used to deliver babies to new parents. But it was too hard, and they had so many near-accidents. So, now, they are out of that business and into something else. Today, the storks are delivery men for a giant Amazon.com-like company, called “CornerStore.com.” The main character stork in the movie is about to be promoted to “boss” by the CEO stork. But, first, he has to attend to the orphan girl who lives in the company’s facility in the sky. She’s left over from the days of when the storks used to deliver newborns. Unfortunately, the girl and the stork accidentally set off the old factory machinery from those days, and a new baby is delivered.
The rest of the movie basically follows the stork and the orphan girl trying to brave the elements and other obstacles in order to deliver the baby to its family. (The cutest–and only interesting–scene is when the two are trying to escape a very smart and resourceful pack of wolves.) Meanwhile, the orphan girl longs to find her own family and be united with them, after all these years. And, at the same time, a “Valley Guy-esque” stool pigeon is telling on them to the CEO because the pigeon wants to be boss instead of the stork. While all of this is going on, a young boy wants a baby brother because his real estate agent parents are neglectful and devoted to their jobs instead of him. So, he begins building a giant amusement-park on the family home’s roof, in order to attract a delivery stork.
At the end of the movie, the storks accidentally set off the baby factory, and thousands of kids pop out. So the storks have to deliver them to their families. This is exactly when I thought to myself, “here’s where the political correctness starts and we see gay families and so on getting deliveries.” Sure enough, Hollywood never disappoints the PC crowd. You see all-female and all-male couples getting baby deliveries. Soooo predictable.
The first ex-Mrs. Brad Pitt (Jennifer Aniston) and Andy Samberg voice characters in this movie. I’m not a fan of either.
Believe me, I’m making this dumb story sound far better than it is. This is a snoozer, and pointless. But kids will probably love the colors.
Watch the trailer . . .

* The Hollars – Rated PG-13: Oy vey. Directed by and starring John Krasinski, this movie is HORRIBLE! Absolutely awful. High quality Gitmo torture material and 1.5 hours of my life I’ll never get back. Who on earth would pay ten-bucks-plus to see this? Only a sucker or a dupe. They’d have to pay me a lot to see this again. Yuck. And it’s incredibly depressing.
Make no mistake: this movie is a deliberate and loud attack on middle American life by snobby Hollywood elitist creeps. (And it’s also, sub rosa, an attack on the lives of average White Americans, too.)
The story: Krasinski plays a guy living in New York trying to “live the dream.” But it turns out he’s not exactly living the dream and isn’t happy with his life. That comes out after he returns home to the small town from which he came to see his family. He learns that his mother has had a seizure because of a brain tumor and she must get immediate surgery to remove it. He also learns that his father’s business is about to go bankrupt and has been losing money, that the family is completely broke, and that his divorced-dad brother is living in his parents basement and lost his job in the family business. The father is a dopey, infantilized, incompetent fool. On top of that, they don’t know how they’re going to pay for their mother’s surgery. And they worry that she won’t survive the operation. But, other than that, GUH-REAT! movie.
Oh, wait. I forgot that Krasinski’s girlfriend (Anna Kendrick) is pregnant, but he really doesn’t think he wants to be a father or to marry the girlfriend. His career is basically non-existent, though, and he’s being “floated” by her financially, as she is very rich. Still, he realizes his life ain’t so bad compared to that of his family in “red state” G-d’s country. Virtually everyone in the small town is a “lesser than” and either a jerk or backward or something.
Shame on Josh Groban for co-starring in this garbage. Also, I’m not sure how this avoided an R-rating. Standards have clearly disintegrated.
I couldn’t stand this movie from the beginning, and each time when I thought it couldn’t get any worse or more boring and depressing, it got worse, more boring, and even more depressing. This is absolute crap. And that’s an understatement. I hated the veiled, sneering, arrogant, and smug politics of this. And I just hated this in every other way, too. Who needs this? Not me. And definitely not you. This movie is so bad that it won awards at all the major movie festivals. That’s how it works. Crap rises to the top.
Pointless trash. Avoid like the plague.
Watch the trailer . . .

A Dangerous New Trend Police Under Attack

An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/ about police. This follows this previous post about them. For a free magazine subscription or to get the books recommended for free click HERE! or call 1-888-886- 8632.

MP3 Audio (16.85 MB)
For many years, the answer little boys would give when asked what they want to be when they grow up has been “I want to be a policeman.” They recognized that the police are protectors, friends, the people who put their lives on the line every day to protect society.
Today, however, the police officer’s job has suddenly become much more dangerous. Police are themselves under fire, battling growing resentment and distrust by large segments of a society they are sworn to protect.
Recently, many have cited a rise in resentment against police and authority figures as the cause of the wave of anti-police violence. What should be our attitude towards authority?
In late August, Harris County (Texas) sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth was ambushed and killed at a suburban gas station. While fueling his patrol car, a lone gunman walked up to him and shot him in the back of the head, then shot him repeatedly as he lay dying. Goforth, 47, left a wife and two children.
One week later, New York Police Department officer Brian Moore was shot to death when he stopped to investigate a man suspected of carrying a gun on a New York street. Just 25, he left a wife and two small children. The young officer had already been awarded two medals for meritorious service.
Near Atlanta, Fulton County police officer Terrance Green was killed in another ambush-style attack by a man who assaulted a group of officers after having “gone on a rampage” throughout south Fulton County, Georgia.

“War on America’s police officers”

Through early November, 2015 witnessed the slaying of 34 police officers. September was a particularly deadly month, with seven officers giving their lives in the line of duty.
“War has been declared on America’s police officers,” says Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
Across the country, police feel themselves under fire, their role in society maligned, their safety threatened. Speaking for the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents more than 300,000 police officers, FOP President Chuck Canterbury said, “It’s almost a radical rhetoric causing officers to say, ‘Wait a second, I’m out here to serve the public. I saved a little old lady from a purse snatching. I gave CPR on the highway and saved somebody. Now, I’m a villain?’” (quoted by Ed Payne and Artemis Moshtaghian in CNN, “Attacks Leave Police Feeling Under Siege,” Sept. 4, 2015).
Across the United States, a string of highly publicized confrontations between police and mostly minority youth has ignited a wave of animosity against law enforcement and law enforcement officers. Major American cities are the battlegrounds, where police themselves feel threatened. A sinister piece of graffiti painted on the side of a Houston building near the Harris County police station showed a picture of a police officer with a gun pointed at his head.
Hollywood has piled on, with celebrities such as movie director Quentin Tarantino calling cops “murderers” over the recent media-hyped shootings in minority neighborhoods. Sadly, the Hollywood police haters and rabble-rousers seem to get no end of publicity in a celebrity-obsessed nation.

The Ferguson effect

Observers have noted the long-standing distrust and animosity between police and largely African-American inner city youth, especially young men. Those simmering tensions exploded after the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, a young African-American man shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police office Darren Wilson. Brown had just robbed a convenience store, and evidence showed that he attacked Wilson just before he was shot.
Brown’s death touched off a wave of racial violence in Ferguson’s minority community, resulting in night after night of widespread violence, burning and looting. Confrontations with police produced dozens of injuries to both rioting citizens and the police, tens of millions of dollars in property damage, and more than 100 arrests.
Now, what is being called “the Ferguson effect” has caused police to be far more cautious, especially when operating in minority neighborhoods. The Wall Street Journal reported this effect in chilling terms:
“Almost any police shooting of a black person, no matter how threatening the behavior that provoked the shooting, now provokes angry protests … Arrests in black communities are even more fraught than usual, with hostile, jeering crowds pressing in on officers and spreading lies about the encounter” (Heather McDonald, “The New Nationwide Crime Wave,” May 29, 2015)

Police more cautious, crime rates up

Across the nation, some mayors and officials in cities with heavy minority populations have themselves accused police of racial bias and excessive use of force. In New York, Mayor Bill De Blasio alleged the New York Police Department used excessive racial profiling, a charge echoed by many minority mayors across the nation.
Faced with criticism from city hall, the media, popular culture, and minority communities, police everywhere report being more cautious and reserved in their responses. One example: In many cities, officers now wait in their patrol cars for backup before confronting crime suspects.
Police cautiousness has emboldened criminals, leading to a spike in crime rates across the nation. After falling for two decades to just over 300 in 2014, murder rates in New York City more than doubled during the first six months of 2015. In Baltimore, gun violence rose more than 60 percent compared to the same period last year—its 43 homicides in May 2015 the deadliest month since 1972. Statistics show this pattern across the country in 2015.

What’s behind it?

Events in inner-city neighborhoods have shown that the right provocation can fan smoldering embers of resentment into a full-blown blaze. But is this a new development or something that has been growing for years?
History has a way of repeating itself. With the rise of highly emotional racial conflicts in the late 1960s, police began to hear themselves referred to as “pigs,” an epithet that continued in inner-city neighborhoods long after the violence subsided. White college students picked up the term, screaming it at police who were called to keep order in often-violent protests against the Vietnam War.
We can add the effects of modern mass media, whose ranks today are filled with the products of modern Western education, which denies the existence of any moral authority, and, therefore, challenges all authority.
And we have seen incidents in which law-enforcement officers have acted rashly, unwisely, abusively or even criminally, leading to unnecessary injuries and deaths. Some have been charged with and convicted of murder, manslaughter and assault, among other crimes.
Advancing their own media narrative, television news coverage of the Ferguson incident and others too often demonize police officers, painting pictures of alleged “police brutality” while totally ignoring barrages of rocks and debris hurled at officers, accompanied by taunts and threats. And usually agitators are in the background egging on the crowd.
The picture of growing disrespect and hatred toward police and authority figures is impossible to ignore. But is there an even deeper, more fundamental cause?
Few recognize, and even fewer will acknowledge, the sinister ultimate cause behind today’s violence and disrespect for authority. Your Bible identifies a powerful and evil adversary who, incredible as it may sound, casts his influence over all mankind today. “You He made alive, who … once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience …” (Ephesians 2:1-2, emphasis added throughout).
This being has the world under his sway, influencing millions in attitudes of rebellion and strife (1 John 5:19; Revelation 12:9). Read our free booklet Is There Really a Devil ? to learn more about this being and his influence on the world.

The prophesied solution

Human beings, it seems, have always had a problem with authority, which gives rise to the question: What should be our attitude towards authority and authority figures? The apostle Paul addressed this issue in his letter to the church in Rome:
“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil” (Romans 13:1-3, New American Standard Bible). Paul went on to exhort the young pastor Timothy to give thanks for “all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
Thankfully, despite today’s violence, your Bible proclaims a soon-coming time when people will live at peace, a time when God’s law will guide all of humanity. Study the prophecies of Isaiah 2:2-4; Isaiah 9:6-7; Isaiah 11:6-9 and Isaiah 35:5-7. It also foretells the time when Satan, this great adversary, will be restrained—no longer able to influence mankind:
“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having … a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years … and shut him up … so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished” (Revelation 20:1-2).
At that time, when God’s long-foretold Kingdom is established on earth, Satan’s influence will be replaced with attitudes of cooperation, giving, and true justice for all. Notice in particular what the prophet Isaiah foretells of Christ in Isaiah 11: “The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord… with righteousness He will judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth” (Isaiah 11:2-4, New American Standard Bible).
Millions who today feel, whether rightly or wrongly, that they are denied justice will be treated fairly. The entire world will respect authority and live secure, peaceful lives under the supreme law of God, which will ensure justice, peace and tranquility. God speed that day!

Hillary Clinton Sent “Mothers of the Movement” to Campaign Against Police in Charlotte Hours Before Riots Broke Out

Mothers of the Movement urge blacks to vote September 22

They are members of a dreaded club they say no one wants to join. Their black children were all killed, either by a law enforcement officer, or someone with a gun. In each case, their child was an innocent victim, not only of the deed, but of the lack of justice that followed.
They are known as “The Mothers of the Movement,” and they captivated the nation last July when they walked out on stage during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Three of them – Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontre Hamilton; and Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland – spent Monday and Tuesday of this week speaking at events in the African-American communities of Greensboro at N.C. A & T University, Durham, Charlotte and Fayetteville, sharing their pain, and urging their audiences to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November presidential election.
The Clinton campaign sponsored the mothers’ tour.
During their hour-long session at North Carolina Central University’s School of Law Monday in Durham, the mothers talked to students there about how their children were killed, how the black community must mobilize to stem the escalating tide of police killings and why they individually believed Hillary Clinton when she met with them, and promised, if elected president, that she would work to reform the criminal justice system so that police officers are held to greater accountability in incidents involving the killing of innocent citizens.
Shortly after their campaign stop in Charlotte on Tuesday at 2 pm, anti-police rioting broke out in that unfortunate city.
My column this week in Taki’s Magazine, “Hillary Held Hostage,” discusses how Mrs. Clinton has left herself a hostage to events such as BLM riots and Muslim immigrant terrorism. But her own role in egging on these disasters should not be ignored either.

The Mothers of the Movement–Hillary And The DNC Go All In For Dead Thugs

Here’s NPR on What To Expect At The Democratic Convention .[by Daniel Kurtzleben, July 15, 2016]
Tuesday will feature the roll call vote and how Hillary Clinton has spent her entire career working to make a difference for children, families and our country. The Mothers of the Movement participating include Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontré Hamilton; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton; Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland.
The “Mothers of the Movement” hadn’t  really registered with me, but I know all those names.
  • garnerresistGwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner—who was a massively overweight thug who died of exertion while trying to fight half a dozen police trying to wrestle him into handcuffs for selling illegal cigarettes to teenagers.
  • Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin— who was a teenage thug (suspended from school for possession of stolen property) who died during his assault on neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. His next-to-last words, as he tried to grab Zimmerman’s gun were “You’re gonna die tonight, mother—er.”(His last words were “You got me.”)
  • Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontré Hamilton— who was a maniac (literally: paranoid schizophrenic) who grabbed an officer’s baton and tried to beat him to death with it.
  • Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis—who was a teenager, who cursed and uttered racist insults at a white man (civilian Michael Dunn) when Dunn asked him not to blast rap music from his car. Dunn shot Davis, claiming self-defense, on the grounds that he’d seen Davis point a shotgun at him. However, since police failed to find a shotgun, and Davis’s companions swore there wasn’t one, Dunn was sentenced to life without parole.
  • rightrobLezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown— who was the Ferguson thug who assaulted and robbed a storekeeper, and when stopped by police officer Darren Wilson smashed Wilson in the face and tried to take his gun.
  • Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton who was a teenage girl in Chicago. An outlier on this list, 15-year old Hadiya was innocent of anything but standing around in a Chicago  park when she was shot for no particular reason by (allegedly)  these two guys.
The Narrative on the Hadiya Pendleton shooting is that it was “gun violence.”
  • Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland—another outlier, since Bland wasn’t killed by anyone at all, but hanged herself in her cell when none of her relatives (including her mother) would bail her out. She’d been arrested for kicking a police officer who stopped her car—an act apparently motivated by the racial resentment all blacks seem to feel when pulled over by the police, no matter how bad their driving is.
With the exception of Hadiya–whose mother, if she wants justice, should be looking to Trump and the Republicans–these are people that only a mother could love.
How hard does Hillary think she can push this BLM stuff without alienating all the remaining white Democrats?
