Exclusive: Joseph Farah outlines most important battle this nation has ever faced 02/24/2019
Some of you have known me and my work over the last 20+ years, ever since I founded the first independent online news-gathering company back in 1997 – WorldNetDaily.com, known more recently as WND.com.
Drudge and WND literally started it all more than 22 years ago.
WND branched out into book publishing and movie-making over the years, but the focus of our business, which made more than $150 million dollars in revenues, was NEWS – real news, truthful news, professional news – just as I did it for the previous 20 years in the euphemistically called “mainstream media,” working as a journalist in the New York market and running daily newspapers in other major markets like Sacramento and Los Angeles.
For 20 years that experiment became so successful that WND inspired other alternative “New Media” sites like Breitbart, the Daily Caller and others. It was never easy doing what we in the alternative free media had to do. It was always an uphill fight, with lots of opposition. But we can pinpoint the specific month when the crisis of fake news came to a head, when the monopoly power-brokers like Google and Facebook literally declared war on the independent media – indeed, a war on free speech, the free press, even freedom of religion and free elections. That was January 2017.
What am I talking about?
I’m talking about real “collusion” – and having nothing to do with Russia. The real crime against America’s most vital institutions of political freedom came from within. The crime is even bigger than the Deep State’s hideous attacks, first on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, and then its ongoing efforts to overthrow the 2016 election. That’s why you haven’t heard much about it. Few in the public have any idea what really happened – and what is still going on.
There’s an old expression going back at least to the Watergate days: “The cover-up is always worse than the crime.”
And that’s what nearly everyone is missing. The cover-up is far, far bigger than almost anyone understands. Yes, it involves rogue actors within the FBI and Justice Department, a failed presidential candidate and the former administration. That’s what we hear about exclusively on Fox News and in the independent media. But, there’s also a powerful unseen hand at work – a cabal of corporate collaborators who not only conspired to rig elections in 2016 and 2018, but are, right now, working furiously on manipulating the results in 2020.
So, who is responsible for the massive cover-up of how freedom in America is under attack?
It’s not just those you think of as the “fake news” media. They could never do it by themselves – even with the hammerlock control they have at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and virtually the entire “mainstream” news apparatus. They are simply not that persuasive. They can’t fool all of the people even in their wiliest moments. But the powerful unseen hand can, does and did.
I’ve already told you who they are – this cartel that immensely extends the influence of the hopelessly biased media and powerfully influences the political opinions and views of the American people, without most of us ever even knowing.
That’s what Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon and Apple can do that no other force on the planet can do. And it’s because they have all your data – more than the NSA and CIA combined. They have the knowhow and algorithms to influence, even change, the way you think about virtually everything and to manipulate massive blocks of Americans without their ever suspecting a thing.
Hard to believe?
For me, too. It’s downright scary. But it’s a fact of life that could literally create a quiet revolution, a silent coup, in America as soon as 2020. It has already experienced profound success.
Have you wondered why America is hurtling toward socialism? Have you asked yourself why Americans are embracing speech codes, turning away from freedom at every turn, adopting group-think – all at warp speed? Is your head spinning from the social and political upheaval and division we’re seeing in the USA?
There has never been a force like the combined power of Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon and Apple in the world before – at least not since the Tower of Babel. It would take a book to explain the imminent threat these companies represent to American freedom. They don’t even need to conspire together because they all share a common worldview.
Think about it. They all have one common partner they support with money, credibility and influence – a hateful leftist organization called the Southern Poverty Law Center. If you know anything about this detestable group that routinely smears conservatives, Christians, Republicans and, most of all, Donald Trump, ask yourself this: Is it a coincidence that Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon and Apple all just happened to partner with, confer with, empower and elevate as content cops the radicals at the SPLC? It would seem to defy chance. But it illustrates my point that these pampered, elite, monopoly corporations all have a common agenda – radicalizing America from inside out.
I know this is quite a story. It may even sound a little crazy, paranoid, like some conspiracy theory. But I am convinced this may be the biggest imminent threat to America’s freedom our nation faces. There are others talking about it, reporting on it, but it’s simply not on the radar of our leaders in Washington who need to act decisively.
I’ve done the best I can to raise this issue since January 2017. That’s the date I realized everything had changed. It’s the date this cartel started targeting individuals, organizations and companies that were perceived as helping Trump win the 2016 election.
That election’s outcome was a shocker for the leftist Big Tech Machine, just as it was for the Deep State. They decided they could never let that happen again. But while the Deep State has been exposed, at least in part, the Big Tech Machine has not. And that’s why it is as dangerous as ever.
As I said, everything changed for the independent media beginning in January 2017. It was like a category 5 hurricane that hit WND and the entire independent media. That’s clearly when Google-Facebook declared open warfare on us, going after our traffic, our advertising and our reputations. You’ve heard how they have gone after conservatives, Christians, Republicans and, most of all, anyone who has defended Trump or treated him fairly.
Two years of Google-Facebook’s scorched-earth campaign against us has taken an unbelievable toll.
Our revenues in January 2017 were a staggering 500 percent higher!
That’s why we have been forced to take radical action just to survive.
Google-Facebook, which together controls 80 percent of the digital advertising market, is out to destroy WND and the rest of the independent media. And they will – unless our supporters and subscribers surround us in prayer and sustain us with financial contributions immediately and for the long term. This is not a short-term crisis. Google-Facebook have made it close to impossible for companies like WND to survive in the online world they control.
Yet, ironically, our voice is needed more than ever in a world caving and capitulating to these power brokers.
Here’s how you can help us keep up this fight for free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free elections and a free America.
Support WND directly with your prayers and your most generous direct financial support – from $3 to $5,000. Consider sending a monthly contribution in any amount. They all help.

Can we win? We have no choice but to fight back. The stakes are high. Our backs are against the wall. But, we believe, with your help and the blessing of God, we cannot lose.
Australian ISPs Ban Liveleak, But Not Facebook & Twitter Over Shooting Video
Targeted censorship: Facebook, Twitter NOT blocked even though video was posted there as well
By Infowars.com Wednesday, March 20, 2019
Australian ISPs have banned the popular video site Liveleak despite it having deleted uploads of the Christchurch shooting video – and despite Facebook and Twitter not getting blocked for the exact same thing.
The countries’ ISPs blocked their customers from accessing the site even though Liveleak published a statement stating it would not host videos of the Christchurch attack.
According to Guardian Australia:
A site that explicitly stated it would not host the horrific Christchurch terror video has been blocked by Australian telcos in an “extraordinary” effort to censor dozens of websites.
Telstra, Vodafone and Optus have all confirmed they are actively blocking Australian customers on their networks from accessing websites that hosted the Christchurch terror video.
None of the three telcos would say which sites had been blocked. The blocks are temporary and will be lifted when the footage is removed. The decision was made independently by telcos following industry-wide discussions, without any direction from law enforcement or the courts.
Facebook and Twitter were not targeted, despite hosting the video.
Although the telcos claim the ban is “temporary,” the mere fact that they’re selectively censoring web sites outside of law sets a very dangerous precedent, and there’s nothing really stopping them from banning sites permanently.
And as Guardian Australia reported, Facebook and Twitter weren’t blocked despite users having uploaded the video to its respective platforms.
Why not? Why was Liveleak banned but not Facebook and Twitter when all three of them seemingly appear to have done the exact same thing?
“On the eve of mass censorship of free speech and citizen journalism it seems this terror attack has played right in to the hands of those wanting to silence voices that are not of mainstream media source,” Liveleak said in a statement. “Even though LiveLeak has removed the video dozens of times having been uploaded.”
Big Tech has proven they care more about virtue signaling to the left than standing up for free speech as world wide laws are being pushed to censor the population.
AMERICAN JIHAD Never forget CAIR's dirty deeds Michelle Malkin: Muslim group hopes to shut up critics in the name of 'stopping the hate'
The Council on American-Islamic Relations is having a banner month. The militant Muslim group never lets a crisis go to waste. That means Americans should beware. When unappeasable CAIR is ascendant, our free speech rights, religious liberty and national security are at risk.
Following the horrible massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, CAIR flacks were out in full force decrying “Islamophobia” and calling for crackdowns on “hate speech” (by which they mean any and all negative thoughts or words about CAIR or Islam). CAIR executive director Nihad Awad was first out of the gate to blame President Donald Trump; target Fox News hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson, whom the left wants to silence; and renew opposition to White House efforts to tighten our immigration and entrance policies, including the travel ban affecting terror-sponsoring countries upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
One of the most vocal critics of policies to guard American sovereignty is radical Somali-born Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. CAIR leaders and members poured thousands of dollars into her campaign. This weekend, the America-bashing, Israel-deriding congresswoman will headline a sold-out fundraising banquet in Southern California. It will be a triumphant celebration, no doubt, of Rep. Omar’s escape from Democratic leadership sanctions (with an invaluable assist from the CAIR lobby) for her nasty swipes at Republicans, Jews and, of course, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump.
While they drape themselves in the mantle of “civility,” the CAIR brigade speaks viciously and cavalierly about their enemies. Omar says Trump is not “human.” On an Arab-American talk show, she mocked a college professor who treated terrorist organizations al-Qaida and Hezbollah with gravity. She cackled at how he named them with a sternness in his voice and questioned why the words “Army” and “America” are not uttered with equal contempt. I can hear the ululations of agreement at the CAIR banquet now.
Let’s not kid ourselves about these exploiters and sowers of division. They thrive on violence whether Muslims are the victims or the perpetrators. CAIR operatives are first to claim systematic oppression and fear of a “backlash” if bloodthirsty Islamic jihadists slay innocent Americans. It’s always our fault and it’s always our responsibility – to curtail our speech, give up our gun rights, undergo sensitivity training, accept inflated statistics about “hate crimes” and apologize for everything. CAIR wants to shut up its critics in the name of “stopping the hate” because it doesn’t want us talking about its dirty, dangerous deeds.
Never forget: The federal government designated CAIR an un-indicted terror co-conspirator in 2007 in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation and others for providing support to violent Hamas jihadists. Investigators tied CAIR’s founders to the Islamic Association for Palestine, founded by a senior Hamas jihadist to serve as the terrorist group’s public relations and recruitment arm in America. The Holy Land Foundation, a terror-financing charity, provided seed money for CAIR’s Beltway office.
Never forget: CAIR is a designated terror organization in the United Arab Emirates.
Never forget: Federal law enforcement investigators banned interactions with CAIR to “prevent CAIR from publicly exploiting such contacts with the FBI.”
Never forget: Ghassan Elashi, a founding board member of CAIR’s Texas chapter, was convicted of laundering money for Hamas terrorism. CAIR’s civil rights director Randall Todd Royer trained with the al-Qaida-linked jihad group Lashkar-e-Taiba and was convicted of conspiring to engage in terror activities. Bassem Khafagi, former CAIR community affairs director and a founder of the sharia-promoting Islamic Assembly of North America, was deported back to his home country of Egypt after being convicted for bank and visa fraud.
Never forget: CAIR officials in California rushed in front of cameras after the San Bernardino jihad attack in 2015 to blame American foreign policy instead of the killers. CAIR provided aid, comfort and legal assistance to the mass shooters’ families.
Never forget: Last summer, CAIR stoked a fake hate crime perpetrated by an Odessa, Texas, waiter who falsely claimed he received a customer’s receipt with the message: “We don’t tip terrorist.”
Never forget: CAIR disseminated the fake claims of a deranged Muslim New York teenager who lied about having her hijab ripped off by Trump supporters.
Never forget: CAIR helped manufacture the “Clock Boy” fake hate claim in Texas – after which, Clock Boy jetted off to Qatar to cash in on a Muslim Brotherhood-linked educational scholarship.
Never forget: CAIR has flexed its censorship muscle by squelching critics of Somalia-based jihad group al-Shabab in Minnesota and smearing them as “anti-Muslim” – even if they were Muslim.
Never forget: CAIR works every day to silence Muslim reformers, apostates, Christians, Jews, infidel scholars, border security advocates, anti-sharia activists and investigative independent journalists, on college campuses, TV airwaves and the internet, to prevent us from exposing the truth about Islamic supremacism.
To quote the late and dearly missed Italian journalist and fierce lioness Oriana Fallaci, who faced trial and death threats for “insulting Islam”:
WND 'Muslim terrorists' in New Mexico tied to Democrats New indictment alleges violent plots against government, military
A federal grand jury in New Mexico has indicted five Muslims who allegedly trained children to carry out school massacres on terrorism-related offenses, conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping.
The five were arrested Aug. 3, 2018, after authorities in a raid found 11 hungry children living in squalid conditions in a remote, makeshift training compound.
The leader, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, is the son of Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a former board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations who is on record urging a violent overthrow of the “filthy” U.S. government. The elder Wahhaj gave an opening prayer at an event at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, pointed out Matthew Vadum in an column for FrontPage Magazine. The imam also has been called a spiritual adviser to jihad promoter and Bernie Sanders supporter Linda Sarsour. Vadum wrote that the “openly anti-Semitic Sarsour sits on the board of the Women’s March organization and openly admits membership in America’s largest Marxist group, the Democratic Socialists of America.”
The imam has insisted his son’s problems with the law amounted to a domestic conflict that has nothing to do with Islam.
The defendants previously were indicted on weapons and conspiracy charges. The new indictment, issued Thursday, alleges “the defendants conspired to provide material support in preparation for violent attacks against federal law enforcement officers and members of the military,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers.
“Advancing beliefs through terror and violence has no place in America, and the National Security Division continues to make protecting against terrorism its top priority,” he said.
The defendants, along with Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, are Jany Leveille, Hujrah Wahhaj, Subhanah Wahhaj and Lucas Morton. Leveille, Wahhaj’s “Islamic wife,” is an illegal immigrant from Haiti who also is under investigation by federal immigration authorities for overstaying her non-immigrant visitor visa.
During the raid, authorities found the remains of a 3-year-old disabled boy who later was identified as the son of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj. The indictment accused Wahhaj of kidnapping the boy from his legal wife and transporting him from Georgia to New Mexico.
Leveille allegedly told the children the boy would be resurrected as “Jesus Christ” and would tell the group which government institutions they should target.
FBI Special Agent Travis Taylor testified Leveille and her husband “sought to recruit and train persons, including minor children, to be prepared to engage in jihad and train an army of jihad and to die as martyrs.”
According to court documents, the five defendants “established a residence, training camp, and firing range at which they stored firearms and ammunition and engaged in firearms and tactical training as part of their common plan to prepare for violent attacks on government, military, educational, and financial institutions in fulfillment of” Leveille’s “religious prophecies.”
‘The only alternative for mankind’
Vadum noted the elder Wahhaj was a close associate of Omar Abdel Rahman, the “Blind Sheikh” who orchestrated the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 that killed seven people.
And the imam has been a longtime supporter of Hizb ut-Tahrir, an organization that seeks to create a worldwide Islamic caliphate governed by Islamic law.
Imam Wahhaj attended a Hizb ut-Tahrir conference in London in 1994 at which leaders called for jihad, denounced democracy and declared “the Islamic system is the only alternative for mankind.”
In the U.S. one week later, Wahhaj praised Hizb ut-Tahrir’s “scholarly brothers” for their “good insight” and “their pushing for the [Caliphate].”
Leveille formerly worked at Imam Wahhaj’s terrorist-linked mosque, Masjid At-Taqwa, in Brooklyn.
The Democratic Party is now a Totalitarian Communist Party.
The Green New Deal is important evidence of this fact. (H.Res.109 – Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal.) There are 90 co-sponsors of this resolution, and they are all Democrats. Since there is not a single Republican among them, this resolution signals a clean and clear divide between the two parties.
There are 235 Democrats in the House of Representatives, so 38.3 percent openly support the resolution. This is a high number, considering how radical the proposal is.
The Green New Deal requires government to extend its power dramatically over the entire economy. It will have total control if supporting legislation is passed, or even if the approach is piecemeal enactment over time. This economic control entails a corresponding destruction of property rights, that is, such freedoms as freedom to contract, freedom to create wealth, freedom of exchange and freedom to consume freely-made products.
Total control of the federal government, which suppresses capitalism and replaces it with a command-and-control economy, justifies the term totalitarian. The accompanying destruction of private property rights justifies the term communist.
The Green New Deal is open about its total communistic economic control. Free markets reflecting free consumer choices will no longer determine what industries have jobs to fill. Instead the government will “create millions of good, high-wage jobs and ensure prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States…”
Instead of a 5-year Soviet-style plan, there will be a “10-year national mobilization”. Again, total control from Washington. A reminder: 90 Democrats are co-sponsoring this resolution.
In addition, the resolution calls for a massive targeted welfare program “to promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous peoples, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this resolution as ‘frontline and vulnerable communities’)”
THERE IS MUCH MUCH MORE in this resolution, and it all adds up to total control, a totalitarian society, accompanied by communist measures that eliminate free markets and private property. The measures could not be implemented without large increases in taxation, another concrete sign of total government control and destruction of private property.
Although the Green New Deal is indeed madness, nonetheless this is what Democrats want. They want totalitarian communism for America. We have to assume that they mean what they say. We haven’t heard the other 145 members repudiate this mad policy.
Meanwhile, this is only one sign of the Democratic soul. Others include Medicare for All and, as in the Green New Deal, universal basic income, i.e., universal welfare. These too are clear communist measures, no matter if they are imposed by a dictator or voted in by a legislature. They can only be funded by a common pool of taxes, and they can only be administered by government control over prices and services. Private healthcare disappears.
Many Americans and American media like to deny that the country has an important degree of socialism and communism already. They hate to admit it. By admitting it, they would concede that such measures as the Green New Deal are in fact socialist and communist. They don’t want to admit this because they themselves favor more communism.
The totalitarian communism being built and advocated in America today doesn’t use the same rhetoric as Marx and Engels and their followers did. That proves nothing. The essence is the same.
The Russian Revolution in October 1917 was a big jump from one system to another, from a parliament to socialism. America has no such big jump into socialism, and this makes us different. We have smaller discrete jumps, and sometimes not so small like the New Deal of FDR. The results are spread over decades and hidden by the advances made by capitalism, which supplies a big pool of wealth. Personal freedoms are not squashed as under Lenin and Stalin. Agriculture is not suddenly collectivized, but it is manipulated and controlled. The Green New Deal singles out agriculture and other industries for control.
Our slower and more diffuse evolution toward communism allows leftist and blind intellectuals to laugh off the label of communism. But that is the reality of our country.
Today’s Democratic Party could change its name to Communist Party without misleading anyone. There already is a Communist Party USA, and its ideology in many respects doesn’t differ significantly from that of the Democratic Party:
“Among the points in the party’s ‘Immediate Program’ are a $15/hour minimum wage for all workers, national universal health care and opposition to privatization of Social Security. Economic measures such as increased taxes on ‘the rich and corporations’, ‘strong regulation’ of the financial industry, ‘regulation and public ownership of utilities’ and increased federal aid to cities and states; opposition to the Iraq War and other military interventions; opposition to free trade treaties such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); nuclear disarmament and a reduced military budget; various civil rights provisions; campaign finance reform including public financing of campaigns; and election law reform, including instant runoff voting.”
Christian Living In A Muslim County ‘143 Times More Likely’ to Be Killed By A Muslim Than Vice Versa
These are some of the facts that need to be taken into account as we face today’s onslaught of massive Agitprop and self-hatred inducement from every screen and every printed page in every Western country
By:Srdja Trifkovic | March 15, 2019
Terrorist attacks against Muslims in the Western world are extremely rare. This morning’s carnage in two mosques in New Zealand, with the death toll currently at 50, is the first major event of its kind since the Quebec City mosque shooting—over two years ago – which killed six persons.
(As for the alleged “Islamophobic incidents” in general, overwhelmingly they are either unverifiable or too trivial to be taken seriously.)
While 56 dead in two years is 56 too many, this regrettable incident will dominate the headlines infinitely more than any comparable carnage involving Christians, notably the 2017 Palm Sunday church bombings in Alexandria; it killed 45 people, and was all but ignored by the Western media and politicians. The developing frenzy of compassion with the victims of Christchurch will result in a number of mathematically predictable consequences:
The ruling elites and their media cohorts all over the Western world will have a field day equating “violent extremism” (which has nothing to do with “true Islam,” of course) with the neo-nazi, right-wing, white, Christian-inspired racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and all other traits of the deplorables; and yes, it will be Trump’s fault to boot. Various Islamic activist in the West, such as the sharia-promoting CAIR in the U.S. and its fellow-conspirators elsewhere, will clamor for ever more stringent laws criminalizing “Islamophobia,” effectively defined as any form of meaningful debate of Islam, its scriptural message, historical practice, and current ambitions. Such demands will be promptly translated into legislative proposals by the jihadophile liberal class which will proclaim zero tolerance of “Islamophobia” as defined by CAIR et al. And, of course, they will demand additional Soviet/Nazi style gun laws.
Six years ago in these pages I defined jihadophilia as a mental disorder affecting members of the Western (including Anglo-Antipodean) elite class, which is characterized by a breakdown of the ability to name Muslims as perpetrators of the acts of Islamic terrorism, by the tendency to systematically ignore Islam as a factor in terrorist attacks or to deny its relevance in such attacks, and by an acute deficit of the capacity or will to provide appropriate institutional or legal responses to such attacks. This psychosis, hard to cure ab initio, will be let loose now like never before.
For starters, there will be no attempt to place today’s killings “in perspective,” as is invariably the case after Muslim terrorists strike Western targets—in Nice, Paris, Berlin etc.—killing hundreds of people. That “perspective” should include the fact that some 30 million Muslims reside in the Western world today (many more on their own reckoning), which makes the probability of any one of them falling victim to a deplorable attack in any given year roughly one in ten million.
These odds may be higher than being eaten by a great white shark, but they compare rather favorably with the probability of a Frenchman being killed by a Muslim fanatic. Be patient, dear reader; let us recoup with precision, lest we be accused of inflammatory rhetoric:
7-9 January 2015: Charlie Hebdo attacks kill 22 people. 26 June 2015: In Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, a Muslim decapitated a Frenchman and rammed a van into cylinders at a gas factory trying to start an explosion. 13-14 November 2015: The horrendous Paris attacks killed 137 people in the single deadliest terrorist outrage in French history 13 June 2016: At Magnanville, a policeman and his wife were murdered by a jihadist. 14 July 2016: A truck was driven into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice. The driver, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, killed 86 people. 26 July 2016: In Normandy two jihadists attacked a church during mass, killing an 86-year-old priest. 1 October 2017: A Muslim stabbed to death two young women at a Marseille train station. Before he was shot dead he shouted Allahu Akbar. 23 March 2018: A Muslim stole a car in Carcassonne, killing the passenger, went to Trèbes, attacked a supermarket, killed three people and injured several others. 12 May 2018: A Chechen-born “Frenchman” stabbed to death one pedestrian and injured several others near the Garnier Opera in Paris. 11 December 2018: In Strasbourg a gunman opened fire just outside the Christmas Market, killing 5 and injuring 11.
That makes 261 dead and many more injured, in attacks by Muslims on non-Muslims, in less than four years, in only one country, France (pop. 66 million). With 66 dead a year on average, Frenchmen are exactly ten times more likely to be murdered by a Muslim than a Muslim being killed by a non-Muslim terrorist anywhere in the Western world.
The score is incomparably worse if we look at the situation of Christians in the Muslim world. It is the most egregious example of human right violations in today’s world: according to “Open Doors,” at least 4,305 Christians known by name were murdered by Muslims because of their faith in 2018. Aid to the Church in Need, in its latest “Religious Freedom Report,” warned that 300 million Christians, overwhelmingly in the majority-Muslim countries, were subjected to violence, making it “the most persecuted religion in the world.”
This makes the odds of a Christian in a majority-Muslim country being murdered by a Muslim—simply for being what he is—approximately one in 70,000. This means a Christian living in a majority Muslim country is 143 times more likely to be killed by a Muslim for being a Christian than a Muslim is likely to be killed by a non-Muslim in a Western country for being what he is.
These are some of the facts that need to be taken into account as we face today’s onslaught of massive Agitprop and self-hatred inducement from every screen and every printed page in every Western country. The victims and their families in New Zealand deserve sympathy. So do the victims of jihadism, which is the most murderous ideology in human history, incomparably more lethal than Bolshevism and National Socialism combined. That cannot and will not happen for as long as the people whose faces you’ll see on TV today, and their bosses, control the discourse.
A very strong medicine is needed to cure the ailment. Jihadophilia’s behavioral consequences invariably lead to chronic morbidities, such as the advocacy of native European and European-descended population replacement by the unassimilable—in Europe’s case overwhelmingly Muslim—immigrant communities. Psychotherapy and vocational and social rehabilitation are ineffective. Involuntary hospitalization will be necessary when the social and political conditions make long-overdue effective treatment methods possible, probably a decade or two from now.
...The allegations in his divorce case have floated around for years, part of a brief filed by his ex-wife Maureen, in which Dees is accused of molesting his stepdaughter. The filing also alleges he refused to give up his mistress, whom he got pregnant before allegedly paying for her abortion, and that he attempted to catch his ex-wife in a sort of cuckoldry sting. After they had agreed to see other people, Dees supposedly showed up with a Montgomery private detective during one of her liaisons with another man in Washington, DC. At the conclusion of the 1980 divorce proceedings, the judge said: ‘We are of the opinion that to [relate the conduct each party accuses the other of] would be detrimental to the best interest of the parties and in particular to their children.’ Some obscure websites opted to surface the claims regardless.
Josh Moon, an Alabama reporter, says the allegations involve some kind of sexual misconduct:
The SPLC fired Morris Dees yesterday and announced it today. Multiple sources have told me that the allegations of inappropriate conduct involve sexual harassment incidents. Multiple incidents that have come to light after an initial recent allegation.
— Josh Moon (@Josh_Moon) March 14, 2019
It remains to be seen whether Dees’s firing will cause tech giants like Google to reevaluate their relationship with the SPLC, which is part of a content moderation partner program called ‘trusted flaggers.’
This is a street in Caracas. The trash in the street is Venezuelan paper money, worth so little it's not worth picking up.

Israel-Gaza fighting ebbs, Gaza rockets reportedly a misfire

JERUSALEM (AP) — Cross-border fighting between Israel and Gaza’s ruling Hamas group appeared to be winding down Friday, amid reports of an Egyptian-brokered truce and Israeli media saying a misfire was believed to be responsible for the rare Gaza rocket attack on Tel Aviv that triggered the exchange.
The two rockets had struck late Thursday, taking Israel’s military by surprise. Overnight, Israeli warplanes hit some 100 Hamas targets in Gaza. The army said targets included an office complex in Gaza City used to plan and command Hamas militant activities, an underground complex that served as Hamas’ main rocket-manufacturing site and a center used for Hamas drone development.
In Gaza, health officials reported that four people were wounded, including a husband and wife in the southern town of Rafah. There were no further details. The office building struck by Israel had been used by Hamas’ office of prisoner affairs.
On Friday, Israeli media quoted defense officials as saying a preliminary investigation indicated the rockets were fired from Gaza by mistake. It was not immediately clear if it was a technical malfunction or human error. The Haaretz daily quoted the officials as saying the rockets were fired during maintenance work. The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Also Friday, a Hamas official said an agreement to restore calm has been reached. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because Hamas has yet to announce the deal, said Egypt led meditation efforts “that have apparently paid off.”
The sudden outbreak of violence came at a sensitive time for both sides.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the midst of a tight re-election battle. A tough response would draw international criticism and domestic accusations that he is acting out of political motivations ahead of the April 9 vote. But a restrained response will draw criticism from his fellow hard-line rivals.
Hamas, meanwhile, is coping with its own domestic troubles. Israel and Egypt have maintained a crippling blockade on Gaza since Hamas took over the territory in 2007. The blockade, along with sanctions by the rival Palestinian Authority and Hamas’ own mismanagement have fueled an economic crisis that has driven unemployment over 50 percent.
Shortly before the rocket attack, Hamas police on Thursday violently broke up a rare protest by demonstrators angry about the dire living conditions in Gaza.
The crackdown triggered heavy criticism on social media. The organizers of a weekly protest along the Israeli border canceled the demonstration in the wake of the escalation.
The fighting came as Egyptian mediators were trying to extend a cease-fire between the bitter enemies, which last fought a war in 2014. The Egyptians left Gaza late Thursday.
Hamas, which typically claims responsibility for its military actions, denied involvement in the rocket attack on Tel Aviv and even said it had undermined its interests. Israel’s military said earlier Friday that it holds Hamas responsible for all attacks coming from Gaza.
The late-night attack Thursday on Tel Aviv, Israel’s densely populated commercial and cultural capital, marked the first time the city had been hit since a 2014 war between Israel and Gaza militants.
Following the first Israeli airstrikes, several additional rounds of rocket fire were launched into Israel. The military said several rockets were intercepted by its air defense systems, and there were no reports of injuries.
The initial blasts from the Israeli airstrikes in southern Gaza were so powerful that smoke could be seen in Gaza City, 25 kilometers (15 miles) to the north. The Israeli warplanes could be heard roaring through the skies above Gaza City.
Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies and have fought three wars since the Islamic militant group seized power in Gaza in 2007. Smaller flare-ups have occurred sporadically since Israel and Hamas fought their last war, in 2014.
Despite its denial, Hamas is one of the only groups in Gaza with the means to strike Tel Aviv. A smaller militant group, the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad, also possesses a large arsenal of rockets, though it too denied involvement.
Video: Covington Lawyers Release Update Detailing Lawsuits Against WaPo, CNN
$525 million lawsuits against the two Fake News entities
By Infowars.com Wednesday, March 13, 2019
The legal team representing Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann has released a video explaining their massive lawsuits against The Washington Post and CNN.
The video, called “Nick Sandmann vs Media Giants,” explains how these corporate outlets “messed with the wrong kid,” resulting in a $250 million lawsuit against WaPo and a $275 million lawsuit against CNN.
“Both recklessly spread lies about a minor to advance their own financial and political agendas. Despite raw video debunking the false narrative, the Post and CNN doubled down on their reckless lies,” the narrator says while showing various talking heads vilifying Sandmann.
“How long will we allow these media giants to tear at the fabric of our lives to further their own agendas? Will they ever be held accountable?”
“Yes, they will,” the narrator says. “Nicholas Sandmann has taken a stand for himself and for you by filing major lawsuits against CNN and the Washington Post.”
Sandmann sought legal counsel following an interview on the “Today” show where he attempted to explain his side of the incident with Native American Nathan Phillips which went viral in January.
Since then, the media has doubled down in their demonization of Sandmann simply because he was wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

U.S. “Gets Its Ass Handed To It” In World War III Simulation: RAND
RAND also war-gamed cyber and electronic attacks in the simulations, Work said; Russia and China tend to cripple US communication networks
By Zero Hedge Tuesday, March 12, 2019
In simulated World War III scenarios, the U.S. continues to lose against Russia and China, two top war planners warned last week. “In our games, when we fight Russia and China, blue gets its ass handed to it” RAND analyst David Ochmanek said Thursday.
RAND’s wargames show how US Armed Forces – colored blue on wargame maps – experience the most substantial losses in one scenario after another and still can’t thwart Russia or China – which predictably is red – from accomplishing their objectives: annihilating Western forces.
“We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary,” he warned.
In the next military conflict, which some believe may come as soon as the mid-2020s, all five battlefield domains: land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace, will be heavily contested, suggesting the U.S. could have a difficult time in achieving superiority as it has in prior conflicts.
Owen Benjamin explains science.
The simulated war games showed, the “red” aggressor force often destroys U.S. F-35 Lightning II stealth fighters on the runway, sends several Naval fleets to the depths, destroys US military bases, and through electronic warfare, takes control of critical military communication systems. In short, a gruesome, if simulated, annihilation of some of the most modern of US forces.
“In every case I know of,” said Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense with years of wargaming experience, “the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky, but it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”
So, as Russia and China develop fifth-generation fighters and hypersonic missiles, “things that rely on sophisticated base infrastructures like runways and fuel tanks are going to have a hard time,” Ochmanek said. “Things that sail on the surface of the sea are going to have a hard time.”
“That’s why the 2020 budget coming out next week retires the carrier USS Truman decades early and cuts two amphibious landing ships, as we’ve reported. It’s also why the Marine Corps is buying the jump-jet version of the F-35, which can take off and land from tiny, ad hoc airstrips, but how well they can maintain a high-tech aircraft in low-tech surroundings is an open question,” said Breaking Defense.
Meanwhile, speaking purely hypothetically of course, “if we went to war in Europe, there would be one Patriot battery moving, and it would go to Ramstein. And that’s it,” Work complained. The US has 58 Brigade Combat Teams across the continent but doesn’t have anti-air and missile-defense capabilities required to handle a barrage of missiles from Russia.
RAND also war-gamed cyber and electronic attacks in the simulations, Work said; Russia and China tend to cripple US communication networks.
“Whenever we have an exercise and the red force really destroys our command and control, we stop the exercise,” Work said without a trace of humor. Beijing calls this “system destruction warfare,” Work said. They aim to “attack the American battle network at all levels, relentlessly, and they practice it all the time.”
The Air Force asked RAND to formulate a plan several years ago to improve the outcomes of the wargames in favor of the US, Ochmanek said. “We found it impossible to spend more than $8 billion a year” to fix the problems.
“That’s $8 billion for the Air Force. Triple that to cover for the Army and the Navy Department (which includes the US Marines),” Ochmanek said, “and you get $24 billion.”
Work was less concerned about the near-term risk of war, and he said, China and Russia aren’t ready to fight because their modernization efforts have not been completed. He said any major conflict is unlikely for another 10 to 20 years from now.
He said “$24 billion a year for the next five years would be a good expenditure” to prepare the military for World War III.
RAND offers a sobering assessment that America could lose a multi-front war in the future, which is quite shocking considering that the US spent nearly three times as much as the second biggest war power, China, did in 2017.
With the defense budget stuck around $700 billion per annum for the remainder of President Trump’s term, America’s Warhawks are inciting fear through simulated wargames with one purpose only: demand more taxpayers’ money for war spending.
Human Traffickers “Recycling” Migrant Children at US Border DHS Sec. Nielson reveals horrors of border crisis
By Dan Lyman Friday, March 08, 2019
Human traffickers are exploiting weak U.S. asylum laws and immigration policies by ‘recycling’ children used to escort adult illegal aliens into the country, according to DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Nielsen testified before Congress on Thursday regarding the explosive crisis unfolding at the U.S. border – a situation she said is “truly an emergency.”
“Smugglers and traffickers have caught on realizing that the outdated laws, lack of resources and bad court decisions effectively give them a free ticket into America,” Nielsen said. “Information about the weaknesses in our system has spread quickly in Central America, in fact they are advertised. And our booming economy under President Trump has made the dangerous journey even more attractive to migrants.”
“As a result, the flow of families and children has become a flood. In the past five years we have seen a 620 percent increase in families or those posing as families apprehended at the border. The last fiscal year was the highest on record.
“And of great concern to me is that the children are used as pawns to get into our country,” Nielsen continued. “We have encountered recycling rings where innocent young people are used multiple times to help aliens gain illegal entry. As a nation, we simply cannot stand for this. We must fix the system.”
Nielsen revealed that Customs and Border Patrol agents apprehended or encountered a stunning 75,000 migrants attempting to illegally enter in the United States in the month of February alone – an 80 percent increase over the same period last year – and that the agency is already on pace to apprehend more migrants in the first six months of this fiscal year than the entirety of FY 2017.
Nielsen warned that if the crisis continues on its current trajectory, it “will overwhelm the system entirely.”
She also explained that due to changing migration flows and demographics of arrivals, combined with laws and policies currently in place, most are now released into the United States “with virtually no hope of removing them in the future.”
“The vast majority of these individuals are from Central America,” Nielsen said. “While many of them initially claim asylum and are let into the United States, only one in 10 are ultimately granted asylum by an immigration judge. Unfortunately when it comes time to remove the other 90 percent, they have often disappeared into the interior of our country.”
The Kremlin has formally suspended the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF for short. Originally designed as a deterrent against land-based, nuclear capable cruise missiles, which since the Cuban Missile Crisis has been seen as a more dangerous threat than strategic ballistic missiles, the nullification of the treaty possibly spells not only a new arms race but a rapid escalation of hostilities between NATO forces in Europe as well as Russia and Chinese-aligned governments in Central and South America.
Tensions increased over the Russian development of the 3M-54 Kaliber, now referenced as the 9M729 Novator, an intermediate range missile which can be fired from a land based platform. The weapon has been known to US intelligence since at least 2014 when it was acknowledged by Obama White House press secretary Josh Ernest.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on 29 July 2014 accused Russia of violating the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. “The United States has determined, according to an intelligence analysis, that the Russian Federation is in violation of its obligations under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF),” he stated at a press briefing in Washington.
Now the threat is not only confirmed but very real. Evidence supports the current deployment of these weapons to the western hemisphere, with previous statements being made supporting a larger strategy. This is from my analysis of the situation last November:
Strategically speaking, the development of this missile and the apparent intention to place them in Cuba points to a much larger scale plan. Learning from the mistakes of the past and taking into account the recent statements of President Trump in regard to military action in Venezuela, and most recently his administration’s intent to declare them a state sponsor of terror, it may be likely the weapons are already present in the region. A short airlift north and they’ll be up and running outside Havana. But their capability to capitalize on the threat is much higher now than it was in 1962, with the Chinese partnering with the Russians, both having built rapport with several of the Caribbean nations through economic and infrastructure aid. The supply line for sustained operations now exists unlike it did in the past, meaning they’re not going away without force and they’ve built that logistics path for future operations.
Compounding the problem is the likelihood of nuclear-capable platforms already being present in Venezuela and possibly elsewhere. The Russian Air Force deployed two of their Blackjack bombers to Caracas in December along with the supporting personnel for a sustained presence. In addition, the re-opening of the greatly renovated Lourdes Signals Intelligence Station located just west of Havana (and housing a very large north-south oriented runway) suggests a rapid fielding of these intermediate missiles once the time is right.
The Novator missile is estimated to have between a 2500-5500km range, allowing it strike most of the continental US even if deployed from Caracas, Venezuela on its extreme end. While that move would be a Russian show of unity with contested Venezuelan President Maduro, whom they support, fielding the weapons in Cuba would be strategically sound and more significant in symbolism while achieving the same effect. And while it remains unknown just yet how this move will impact NATO planning, I’d venture to say guerrilla training operations in the Baltic nations will be increasing. You should be doing the same here at home.
This nullification of the treaty on part of the Kremlin is a signal that hostilities will be increasing. Russia does not make a move without placing its assets first; a public showing is nothing more than a formality. Its a very real possibility that this will spiral out of control fast, given the current tensions in Venezuela and between India and Pakistan. While some may point to this being an opportunity for a better deal, it looks like everyone else should be preparing just like they were a decade ago- and that includes getting solid training. Are you ready?
PayPal CEO Admits Partnership with Far-Left SPLC to Blacklist Conservatives
25 Feb 2019
PayPal CEO Dan Schulman admitted during an interview with the Wall Street Journal that PayPal works with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) when it considers blacklisting conservatives.
After being asked by the Wall Street Journal what “values” PayPal identifies with,” Schulman replied, “Probably the most important value to us is diversity and inclusion.”
“I think North Carolina was probably the moment that was the most visible, where we basically said this violates our core value and we need to make a very public stand on it,” claimed Schulman, referencing the time when PayPal pulled out of an investment in North Carolina because the state passed a bill making it mandatory for people to use the bathroom of their biological sex.
“Businesses need to be a force for good in those values and issues that they believe in. It shouldn’t come from backlash or people taking heat on it, because then it’s in response, as opposed to the definition of who you are and then how you react to the context that you find yourself in,” the PayPal CEO expressed, adding that the Charlottesville rally in 2017 was a “defining moment” for PayPal to start blacklisting conservatives.
Schulman claimed it “was a defining moment for us as a company,” that was “difficult,” because, “the line between free speech and hate, nobody teaches it to you in college. Nobody’s defined it in the law.”
During the interview, Schulman also admitted that the far-left SPLC helps to inform “PayPal’s decisions.”
“There are those both on the right and left that help us. Southern Poverty Law Center has brought things. We don’t always agree. We have our debates with them. We are very respectful with everyone coming in. We will do the examination carefully,” Schulman explained. “We’ll talk when we don’t agree with a finding: We understand why you think that way, but it still goes into the realm of free speech for us.”
The SPLC, which also reportedly works with Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, was forced to pay a $3.3 million settlements to anti-extremist activist Maajid Nawaz last year, after the organization included him on a list of “anti-Muslim extremists,” despite Nawaz being Muslim himself.
The lawsuit victory prompted at least 60 other organizations to also consider lawsuits against the SPLC, and in June, a Washington Post columnist declared the SPLC “has lost all credibility.”
PayPal has blacklisted WikiLeaks, Infowars, conservative commentator and Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, political activist Tommy Robinson, investigative journalist Laura Loomer, blogger Roosh V, free speech social network Gab, YouTube alternative BitChute, and a black metal music label.
Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch, and Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative were also temporarily blacklisted by PayPal, before being reinstated.
Last year, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a liberal nonprofit for the defense of free expression and privacy online, expressed concern over payment processors becoming “de facto internet censors.”
“EFF is deeply concerned that payment processors are making choices about which websites can and can’t accept payments or process donations,” declared an EFF spokesman at the time. “This can have a huge impact on what types of speech are allowed to flourish online.”
“We’ve seen examples — such as when WikiLeaks faced a banking blockade — of payment processors and other financial institutions shutting down the accounts of websites engaged in legal but unpopular speech,” the spokesman continued. “I’m deeply concerned that we’re letting banks and payment processors turn into de facto Internet censors.”

Trump Slams Senate Democrats On Born Alive Bill: ‘One Of The Most Shocking Votes In The History Of Congress’
Evie Fordham | Politics and Health Care Reporter
President Donald Trump reacted on Twitter Monday evening after the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, which would have ensured that babies who survive abortions are given medical attention, failed to pass the Senate.
“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”
Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2019
The bill failed 53 to 44. The legislation would have mandated that babies born alive after an abortion would receive the “same protection of law as any newborn” and needed 60 votes to pass.
No Democratic presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted for the bill.
Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse spearheaded the effort to pass the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act.
“Despite opposition and setbacks, despite some strange rhetoric about this bill over the course of the last week, I am hopeful in the long term,” he said Monday.
Sasse re-upped the legislation after comments from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam. Northam has not walked back statements he made that appeared to condone infanticide and late-term abortion in January.
