U.S. Gov Tossing Immigrants From The U.S. Military? Get The Facts

Immigrants and the Military

We also know that just because you sign up to the military doesn’t mean you get in. So what appears to be happening here is that some people who signed up aren’t being taken because the DoD hasn’t finished their background checks or has spotted red flags.

The media have botched a series of important immigration stories. First, it was the separation of children from their parents at the border, a policy that began under the Obama administration and was mandated by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals; now, it’s booting unvetted immigrants from the military.

On Thursday, the Associated Press ran with this stunning headline: “US Army quietly discharging immigrant recruits.” Now, you might think from that headline that the U.S. Army was quietly discharging immigrant recruits . . . for the sin of being immigrants.

But that’s not true. In paragraph 4 of the article, we learn that some of those discharged were told “they’d been labeled as security risks because they have relatives abroad or because the Defense Department had not completed background checks on them.” Both of which seem like pretty good reasons to discharge potential members of the military.

So, is the Trump administration seriously cracking down on good, solid immigrants wanting to join the military? Thus far, no evidence has been presented that suggests the story is true.

America Is In A New Civil War. Are You To Blame?

The 2nd U.S. Civil War

America is in a new Civil War.

Many Americans have become emotional, illogical and violent. Who is to blame?

The nation as I see it is divided into four groups:

  1. The Left – Pseudo and full blown socialist and neo Marxist who despise Western civilization and liberal democracy.
  2. The Right – Hardline to moderates with a distinct hatred for big government and its supporters.
  3. Moderates ‘The Logical’ – This group sees balance between the two extremes but has a its voice drowned out by the NGOs and manufactured media blitz of the others.
  4. The people who don’t care, don’t vote and don’t give a damn about politics until it affects them of their children.

But the Left in my opinion bears most of blame.

  • Through its organized protests which have condoned violence.
  • The cabal of psychology which has promoted ideas contrary to science. What you feel is who you are.
  • The use of NGOs and government insiders to manipulate media and legislators.

All civility has been lost!

A recent piece in the New York Post give the backstory.

Some pundits have been asking if America is on the brink of another civil war, but Glenn Harlan Reynolds at USA Today argues that it “seems to be well under way.”

Hollywood, after all, “has basically turned its products, and its award shows, into showcases for ‘the resistance.’ ” Meanwhile, Americans increasingly are “sorting themselves into communities that are predominantly red or blue.”

Consider last week’s restaurant incidents involving White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen: Such incidents “would have been largely unthinkable a generation ago.”

Says Reynolds: “For many people, politics seems to have become a substitute for religion or fraternal organizations. If you find your identity in your politics, you’re not going to identify with people who don’t share them.”

German Government – BDS Movement is Racist

Jbds-swastikaThe anti-Israel boycott movement is a “new variation of anti-Semitism: anti-Zionist anti-Semitism,” a German intelligence agency concluded.

By: Max Gelber

A German intelligence agency has deemed the anti- Israel BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) anti-Semitic, saying it is a “new variation of anti-Semitism: anti-Zionist anti-Semitism.”

The Jerusalem Post reported on Thursday that the state of Baden-Württemberg’s intelligence agency, in its May report, wrote that propaganda by the neo-Nazi party Der Dritte Weg (The Third Way) urging boycotts of Israeli products “roughly recalls similar measures against German Jews by the National Socialists, for example, on April 1 1933” when the Nazis used the slogan “Germans! Defend yourselves! Don’t buy from Jews!”

The neo-Nazi organization called Israel a “terror state” and the “Zionist abscess.” The report showed a graphic used by the Third Way showing a Palestinian flag with the words “Freedom for Palestine” over a person whose mouth is covered with an Israeli flag.

Another graphic read “Boycott products from Israel: 729 = Made in Israel,” which refers to the bar code number “729,” an identifier of Israeli-made goods.

Established in 2013 with the participation of former officials of the far-right National Democratic Party and activists affiliated with the Freies Netz Süd (Free Network South), which was banned in 2014, Der Dritte Weg is comprised of radical ethnic nationalists.

The party describes its members as the “conscious neo-Nazi elite,” with the majority classified as very violent.

Party members traveled to Lebanon in March 2017 and lauded Hezbollah’s 2006 war against Israel.

The Third Way’s web page calls for support of convicted Holocaust-denier Horst Mahler.

Labeling BDS as anti-Semitic could have far-reaching consequences for German politicians and organizations that engage in pro-BDS activity, the Jerusalem Post reported.

This is believed to be the first time that a German domestic intelligence agency has labeled BDS as anti-Semitic and a security threat, while German political bodies and politicians at various levels have already recognized BDS for what it really is.

In August, Frankfurt became the first German city to pass a bill outlawing municipal funding for the BDS movement’s activities.

In May 2017, Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD) passed a resolution in support of Israel, condemning BDS as anti-Semitic.

In December 2016, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party announced the passing of a resolution declaring BDS anti-Semitic.

The BDS movement promotes financial, academic and cultural boycotts against Israel, ostensibly as a nonviolent struggle against the so-called “Israeli occupation.”

Critics say its activities are a modern form of anti-Semitism and that its true objective is to destroy the State of Israel.

Women’s March Leaders Say Jews Are A ‘Human Rights Crime’

Mallory Sarsour Antisemitism

On Friday, Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory – she of the Louis Farrakhan fandom – explained that she believes Israel ought not exist.

Taly Krupkin@TalyKrupkin

Following her trip to Israel and Palestine, and days before the big Israeli event @CelebrateIsrael , TamikaDMallory answered critics and supporters who asked her if she believes Israel has a right to exist during

She telecommuted in to explain to an event titled “Palestine Is Everywhere” at the Center for Constitutional Rights and Justice Delegation:

My soul would not rest, standing by and doing nothing about it, to know that the US government – my taxpayer’s money, $10 million a day – is going to a government, a military, that takes the lives of people who were there first. There are a lot of people who will say, “Do you believe that Israel has the right to exist?” I believe we all have a right to exist, I want to see all of us live in a free society, where we are all able to raise our families and to be fruitful and have occupations. This is not about stopping one side. This is about ensuring that the native people are able to enjoy their land. They shouldn’t ask anybody for their land! This is their land! When you go to someone’s home and you need a place to stay, you ask “Can I come into your home and can I stay here, and can we peacefully coexist?” You don’t walk into someone else’s home, needing a place. It’s clear you needed a place to go – cool, we got that! I hear that! But you don’t show up to somebody’s home, needing a place to stay, and decide that you’re going to throw them out and hurt the people who are on that land. And to kill, steal, and do whatever it is you’re gonna do to take that land! That to me is unfair. It’s a human rights crime.

Linda Sarsour, another Women’s March leader, then said that Israel was an “apartheid” state and compared Israel to North Korea.

This is historically ignorant stuff. Jewish presence in the land of Israel has been unbroken for thousands of years. The only independent states in the history of the region have all been Jewish. Israel openly invited Arabs living in Israel to stay during the 1947-1948 war for independence, even as Arab regimes informed Arabs living in the area to flee their oncoming armies.

This isn’t shocking stuff coming from Mallory, a devotee of anti-Semite Farrakhan’s. But it’s once again demonstrative of the fact that for intersectional Leftists, Muslim identity outranks Jewish identity – and that anti-Semitism is just fine so long as you hold the correct intersectional credentials.

GREAT WOMEN: Wanda Wos Lorenc: Polish Freedom Fighter

On August 23rd, 1939, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed a non-aggression pact. The pact contained a secret clause to divide the nation of Poland up between them as conquered territory. One week later, Nazi Germany invaded Poland. Thus, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany started
World War II—as allies.

But brave Polish men and women like Wanda fought back against the bloodthirsty totalitarian invaders that had invaded their homeland. Here is Wanda’s story:

BREAKING Starbucks Caves To Pressure And Sides With Racist Against ADL

Starbucks and the ADL

Starbucks has had second thoughts about using the Anti-Defamation League in its storewide diversity training, reports Tablet’s Liel Leibovitz.

This, after Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory, a Louis Farrakhan acolyte, tweeted that the ADL is dedicated to “constantly attacking black and brown people.” So it looks like her “bigoted observation might’ve swayed someone.”

Neither Starbucks nor the ADL is talking, but “anyone following the current state of the Democratic Party shouldn’t have too much trouble piecing together the surprising dismissal of one of America’s most veteran and venerated civil rights groups.” Starbucks’ executive chairman, Howard Schultz, is a longtime Democratic donor.

And “the Democratic Party these days is the sort of place where siding with Farrakhan . . . is a badge of radical chic, not a reason for disqualification.”

VIDEO: Fresno State Professor Randa Jarrar Praises Plane Hijackers, Calls For Acts Of Terrorism

A newly uncovered video featuring Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar shows the far-left professor praising plane hijackers and calling for acts of domestic terrorism against specific individuals.

The Fresno Bee reports:

In one clip featured in the video, Jarrar is discussing Fresno’s agriculture industry and says “a lot of the farmers now are Trump supporters and just f—ing stupid.” In another, she says she can’t stand “the white, hetero patriarchy.”

Jarrar, who is currently under investigation by the university for recent tweets attacking the Bush family after the passing of Barbara Bush, is also seen in the video promoting “resistance fighters” who hijacked planes in the 1960s and ’70s.

“I don’t give a f—. I’m buying guns. I’m an American. I’m buying guns,” Jarrar said. “The other side is, like, doing some stupid s—. I’m gonna do some stupid s—. I’m tired of, like, being the bigger person — literally am usually — but, like, I’m also just tired of the left being, like, f—ing stupid and being like, ‘No we have to like be gentle’ … no, don’t be f—— gentle.'”

Later in the clip, Jarrar calls for attacks against someone named Spencer, asking why “Spencer’s house is still standing.”

“It needs to be f—ing broken into,” she said. “People need to f—ing throw grenades into it. I don’t give a f—.”

Women’s March Leader Tamika Mallory Hates The Anti-Defamation League

On Tuesday, as reported by The Daily Caller, she issued a statement explaining, “So you are aware, Starbucks was on a decent track until they enlisted the Anti-Defamation League to build their anti-bias training. The ADL is CONSTANTLY attacking black and brown people. This is a sign that they are tone deaf and not committed to addressing the concerns of black folks. Be clear what’s happening here!”

Naturally, Mallory wanted the ADL replaced with Jews for Racial Economic Justice, Bend The Arc: Jewish Action, and Jewish Voice For Peace. All three are even further left than the ADL.

Once again, the leadership of the Women’s March apparently has nothing to say about this sort of blatant bigotry against Jews. And that’s what this is about: the ADL is run by Jonathan Greenblatt, an Obama acolyte, and is certainly not a racist group. Mallory has no evidence to suggest that it is racist. She just doesn’t like that the ADL pointed out her association with Farrakhan, and so she’s doubling down on her foolishness by going after those who targeted her.

The Women’s March Pushes Sex Trafficking

Backpage and The Women’s March

The Women’s March, already “mired in controversy over its unsavory associations,” has now raised new doubts about its professed “commitment to one of the groups it claims to speak for: abused and exploited women and girls,” reports Commentary’s Sohrab Ahmari.

How else, he asks, to explain its denunciation of the government crackdown against Backpage?” That Web site allegedly “facilitates prostitution and the trafficking of women and girls,” including ads containing “code words for underage girls.”

Yet the Women’s March rushed to defend Backpage on Twitter, calling the crackdown “an absolute crisis for sex workers.” In other words, they’re saying, “the rights of the prostitution industry . . . override the rights of exploited and abused women and girls.” Says Ahmari: “Anti-Trump women who have so far ignored or tolerated the group’s ideological extremism now have no excuse.”

Booker T. Washington: A Man Of Exceptional Character

Booker T. Washington

162 years ago Booker T. Washington was born.

Born a slave in Virginia, made free by the Civil War, and then a self-educated college graduate, Booker T. Washington is one of the most underrated of all the Civil Rights Activists, a man who in creating the Tuskegee Institute, helped personally change the lives of generations of his fellow African Americans.

It also happens that Washington was a fountain of what reads like Stoic wisdom. For instance, take these two quotes, which capture the essence of what Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus spent so much time talking about.

“Character, not circumstances, makes the man.”

“The world cares very little what you or I know, but it does care a great deal about what you or I do.”

It’s also clear that Washington lived these words. This was a man who walked nearly 500 miles to apply for college, and when he wasn’t accepted, he quietly cleaned the waiting room of the admissions office until they let him in.

Character like that can’t be stopped. This was a man who instead of talking about the needs for better schools and opportunities for his people went out and created a institute that provided exactly that.
