How NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers Saved The U.S. From a Massive Constitutional Crisis

By Capt Joseph R. John, January 9, 2018: Op Ed # 378 

The below listed material exposes how political appointees of the Obama administration weaponized the intelligence community, the FBI, and the Department of Justice to spy on a US Presidential candidate before he was elected, and for the first time in US History, attempted to initiate the removal of a the duly elected US President from office, creating a Constitutional Crisis and by so doing, dangerously dividing the American electorate, by charging that Donald Trump collude with Russia to win the presidential election, when the truth is that Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia to create and pay for a false Steele Dossier on Donald Trump.    


The article further exposes how the political appointees in the Obama administration in the intelligence community, employed the fraudulently created Steele Dossier, funded by the Hillary Presidential Campaign and the Democratic Party, whose content were never verified by the political appointees at FBI Headquarters and US Justice Department Headquarters to obtain FISA Warrants.  The goal was to unmask hundreds of American citizens, and to also surveil and intercept communications, phone calls, and conversations of members of the Trump Campaign and the Trump Presidential Transition Team in Trump Tower.  


The hero in putting an end to these illegal and treasonous actions, at personal risk to his survival, was NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers, USN, who James Clapper tried to prevent from revealing the depth of the conspiracy, and then tried to have him removed from office.

This outline is the story of how the FBI Counterintelligence Division and DOJ National Security Division were weaponized. This outline is the full story of what House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes is currently working to expose.  This outline exposes the biggest political scandal in U.S. history.  This outline is also the story of how one man’s action likely saved our constitutional republic.

His name is Admiral Mike Rogers.

I’m calling the back-story to the 2016 FISA 702(16)(17) political corruption by the Obama administration “Operation Condor”.  Those of you familiar with the film “Three Days of The Condor” will note how the real life storyline almost mirrors the Hollywood film. For the real life version, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers plays the role of “Condor”.


“SCIF” – a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility. To understand the larger FISA 702(16)(17) issues in 2016 it is important to focus on the word “compartmented”.

Intelligence information is housed by compartments within the larger intelligence community network. Each intelligence unit holds intelligence unique to that compartment and task. The FBI Counterintelligence unit would hold the intelligence information specific to their task or assignment; the DOJ National Security Division would hold their own compartmented intelligence; again, specific to their task and objectives. So too would the DOJ, DoD (Pentagon), State Dept., or CIA.

This compartmented structure is what led to the creation of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, ODNI. The 911 commission recommended the office to serve as a hub able to ensure intelligence sharing; that is – to ensure intelligence was not intentionally withheld from other compartments when needed.

In 2016 the ODNI for President Obama was James Clapper.

It is doubtful the 911 commission ever gave thought to what might happen when intelligence is weaponized as a political tool. The DNI is a political appointment, a cabinet member, of the President.  If the executive branch, the President, wanted to weaponize intelligence as a political tool, he/she would have control over such weaponization as an outcome of their political appointees within the: FBI (Comey, McCabe), DOJ (Lynch/Yates), CIA (Brennan), DNI (Clapper), or DoD (Ash Carter), etc.

The civilian (representative) oversight into the compartmented intelligence falls to a very select group known as the Intelligence Gang of Eight.

Four Democrats and Four Republicans (four minority party and four majority party political leaders) for a total of eight. Four from the House and Four from the Senate. –Understand the Gang of Eight Here– The Gang-of-Eight can, if they choose, interact with the intelligence product with the same level of security clearance as the compartment being reviewed.

Only these eight members can interact with the intelligence product in this way. This ensures their ability to conduct oversight.

It is critical to understand the difference between the House Intelligence Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee and the Gang of Eight. Only two members from the House Intelligence Committee (chair and minority), and two members of the Senate Intelligence Committee (chair and vice-chair) are participants. The other four are Speaker of the House, minority leader of House, Leader of Senate and Minority leader of Senate. The latter four are not part of any other intel committee.

On March 20th 2017 congressional testimony, James Comey was asked why the FBI Director did not inform congressional oversight about the counterintelligence operation that began in July 2016.

FBI Director Comey said he did not tell congressional oversight he was investigating presidential candidate Donald Trump because the Director of Counterintelligence suggested he not do so. *Very important detail.*

I cannot emphasize this enough. *VERY* important detail. Again, notice how Comey doesn’t use FBI Counterintelligence Director WH “Bill” Priestap’s actual name, but refers to his position and title. Again, watch the first three minutes:

FBI Director James Comey was caught entirely off guard by that first three minutes of that questioning. He simply didn’t anticipate it.

Oversight protocol requires the FBI Director to tell the congressional intelligence “Gang of Eight” of any counterintelligence operations. The Go8 has oversight into these ops at the highest level of classification. In July 2016 the time the operation began, oversight was the responsibility of this group, the Gang of Eight:

Obviously, based on what we have learned since March 2017, and what has surfaced recently, we can all see why the FBI would want to keep it hidden that they were running a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate. After all, as FBI Agent Peter Strzok said it in his text messages, it was an “insurance policy”.

REMINDER – FBI Agent Strzok to FBI Attorney Page:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

FBI Director James Comey told congress on March 20th, 2017, the reason he didn’t inform the statutory oversight “Gang of Eight” was because Bill Priestap (Director of Counterintelligence) recommended he didn’t do it.

The originating intelligence agency agency, in these examples the DOJ National Security Division and/or FBI Counterintelligence Division, holds the proprietary intelligence they create in their SCIF.  They may also receive intelligence products created for them, which they will also host in their unique SCIF. Thus, intelligence is compartmentalized.

In 2015 Sally Yates blocked any inspector general oversight of the DOJ National Security Division (SEE Pdf HERE).  The Office of Inspector General. Michael Horowitz, requested oversight over the DOJ National Security Division and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58-page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

The White House -the executive branch- is also a host of intelligence information and consequently the White House has their own SCIF which holds intelligence products they would create (very little), or intelligence products created for them (the vast majority).

An example of a product created for the executive branch would be the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB).

The PDB as a whole product would only exist in the White House SCIF. Parts of the PDB would be hosted by the originating participant, ex. NSA, FBI, DOJ, DoD, CIA State Dept. etc., but only the White House would have the fully assembled product. After all, it’s assembled for the President.

Putting the “Oversight” structure together with the “Compartmented” intelligence security you will note that only a few people ‘could’ traditionally access the full PDB.  However, under President Obama the President’s Daily Brief went to almost everyone at top levels in his administration.  Regarding the Obama PDB:

[…]  But while through most of its history the document has been marked “For the President’s Eyes Only,” the PDB has never gone to the president alone. The most restricted dissemination was in the early 1970s, when the book went only to President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, who was dual-hatted as national security adviser and secretary of state.

In other administrations, the circle of readers has also included the vice president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, along with additional White House staffers.

By 2013, Obama’s PDB was making its way to more than 30 recipients, including the president’s top strategic communications aide and speechwriter, and deputy secretaries of national security departments. (link)

Pay attention to that last part.  According to the Washington Post outline Obama’s PDB’s were going to more than 30 recipients including: “Deputy Secretaries of national security departments”.

During an MSNBC interview about her unmasking U.S. citizens within intelligence reports, in April 2017, President Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, defined the Obama national security departments to include: “State” – “Defense” (Pentagon includes NSA) and “CIA”….

So under President Obama’s watch Deputy Asst. Secretaries of Defense had daily access to the PDB.  An example of an Obama Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense, Evelyn Farkas.

With dozens of people having access to President Obama’s PDB, Rice’s unmasking of names within the intelligence product gave dozens of people direct access to unmasked intelligence – including Obama officials who could, likely did, use the PDB for specific and intentional political purposes.  This political outcome was essentially confirmed by Evelyn Farkas who was one of the downstream recipients of the unmasked intelligence.

If the House Intelligence Committee, or Senate Intelligence Committee, as a whole – wanted to see the President’s Daily Briefing, they would have to request the individual components from the individual intelligence agencies because the PDB product was not created for them; it was created for the Office of The President.

Only the Chairman and Minority leader from each Intel committee could go to the White House to see the PDB end product. [Remember, they alone are four of the Gang-of-Eight.]

This is why Devin Nunes, who is a Go8 member, has to request the intelligence from each department (NSA, DOJ, FBI etc.) in order to share it with the oversight committee. Nunes can review the ‘executive SCIF product’ but cannot export or import intelligence product he did not create.

The Congressional SCIF would then hold the compartmented information after delivery for the committee members to review under very tight controls. The intelligence is removed/deleted after review. No systems are connected.

Our research indicates that in February and March 2017 Chairman Devin Nunes, a gang of eight member, reviewed intelligence reports (most likely PDB’s) that were assembled exclusively for the office of the former President (Obama). That is why he went to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB) Information Facility to review.

The intelligence product would be delivered to that SCIF system for his review, most likely by the ODNI (Dan Coats) or NSA (Mike Rogers).   It would be removed from that SCIF system after Nunes review, (no systems are connected).  It is important to note here that President Trump nominated Senator Dan Coats as ODNI on January 5th, 2017 – however, Democrats held up that nomination until March 16th, 2017.

It is not coincidental that immediately following DNI Dan Coat’s ability to provide that information Chairman Devin Nunes first reported his concerns. After Devin Nunes review the information March 22nd 2017, Nunes stated the intelligence product he reviewed was “not related to Russia, or the FBI Russian counter-intelligence investigation”.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes, then held a brief press conference  and stated he has been provided intelligence reports brought to him by unnamed sources that include ‘significant information’ about President-Elect Trump and his transition team.

1.) …”On numerous occasions the [Obama] intelligence community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition.”

2.)  “Details about U.S. persons associated with the incoming administration; details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.”

3.) “Third, I have confirmed that additional names of Trump transition members were unmasked.”

4.) “Fourth and finally, I want to be clear; none of this surveillance was related to Russia, or the investigation of Russian activities.

“The House Intelligence Committee will thoroughly investigate surveillance and its subsequent dissemination, to determine a few things here that I want to read off:”

•“Who was aware of it?”

•“Why it was not disclosed to congress?”

•“Who requested and authorized the additional unmasking?”

•“Whether anyone directed the intelligence community to focus on Trump associates?”

•“And whether any laws, regulations or procedures were violated?”

“I have asked the Directors of the FBI, NSA and CIA to expeditiously comply with my March 15th (2017) letter -that you all received a couple of weeks ago- and to provide a full account of these surveillance activities.”

Again, this is why the intelligence reports seem likely to have been political opposition research -that was part of Obama’s PDB– unless it was a separate intelligence product, apart from the PDB, which was created for the Office of the President.  [I view the latter as highly doubtful because it would be too risky for the President to be asking for specific ‘stand alone’ intelligence against political adversaries, ie candidate Donald Trump.]

…Here’s where all the dots connect:

Fast forward to 2018 – Aside from the larger Russian conspiracy narrative, up to now the controversial media story has been around the origin of the 2016 FISA warrant(s).

As previously stated by all reporting there was a June 2016 FISA application that was denied, and an October 2016 application that was approved.  The current line of congressional inquiry surrounds the underlying content of the requested FISA warrant, and whether it was built upon fraud and manipulated content (the ‘Steele Dossier’) presented to the FISA Court (FISC).

Recently the media have been working frantically, against an entire year of prior support for the Steele Dossier, to distance the origin of the FBI counterintelligence operation from the dossier.   The reason why reveals the bigger underlying story.

When Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes explained his concern in March 2017 about what he saw from a review of 2016 intelligence gathering, reporting and subsequent unmasking, the issue behind his concern was clouded in mystery. Indeed the larger headlines at the time were about demanding a special prosecutor and driving the Russia conspiracy narrative.

In hindsight, and with information from our assembled timelines of 2016 though today, we can now revisit that concern expressed by Chairman Nunes with a great deal more perspective and information. Understanding the latest information will help us all understand the totality of Nunes original frame of reference.

As many of you are aware, immediately following the 2016 presidential election NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers traveled to Trump Tower to meet with president-elect Donald Trump. The day AFTER the Rogers visit, President-elect Trump moved his transition team out of Trump Tower to Bedminister New Jersey.

We always suspected NSA Director Rogers gave President-elect Trump a head’s up of sorts.

Later, during the December 2016 and Jan, Feb, March, April 2017 Russian Conspiracy frenzy, when the entire intelligence community seemed to be collectively leaking against Trump’s interests, those suspicions gained even greater likelihood. However, what we learned in 2017 about the activity in 2016 almost guarantees that was exactly what happened. That back-story also ties into both the FISA issue and the Devin Nunes concern.

Admiral Mike Rogers became NSA director in April 2014.

Sometime in early 2016 Admiral Rogers became aware of “ongoing” and “intentional” violations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Section 702 surveillance. Specifically item #17 which includes the unauthorized upstream data collection of U.S. individuals within NSA surveillance.

Section 702 – Item #17 “About Queries” is specifically the collection of emails, and phone call surveillance of U.S. persons.

The public doesn’t discover this issue, and NSA Director Rogers action, until May 2017when we learn that Rogers told the FISA court he became aware of unlawful surveillance and collection of U.S. persons. Put into context, with the full back-story, it appears that 2016 surveillance was the political surveillance now in the headlines; the stuff Chairman Nunes is currently questioning.

The dates here are important as they tell a story.

As a result of Rogers suspecting [FISA 702 (#17 – email and phone calls)] surveillance activity was being used for reasons he deemed unlawful, in mid 2016 Rogers ordered the NSA compliance officer to run a full audit on 702 NSA compliance.

Again, 702 is basically spying on Americans; the actual “spying” part is 702. Item 17 is “About Queries“, which allows queries or searches of content of email and phone conversations based on any subject matter put into the search field.

The NSA compliance officer identified several strange 702 “About Queries” that were being conducted. These were violations of the fourth amendment (search and seizure), ie. unlawful surveillance and gathering. Admiral Rogers was briefed by the compliance officer on October 20th, 2016.

Admiral Mike Rogers ordered the “About Query” activity to stop, reported the activity to the DOJ, and then went to the FISA court.

On October 26th, 2016, full FISC assembly, NSA Director Rogers personally informed the court of the 702(17) violations. Additionally, Rogers also stopped “About Query” permanently.

[Things to note: Note the sequencing; note that Rogers a career military person, followed the chain of command; note the dates as they align with the Trump FISA application from the FBI and DOJ-NSD, (ie. early October 2016); and note amid this sequence/time-line the head of DOJ-National Security Divsion, John P Carlin resigns.]

IMPORTANT – WATCH The first two and a half minutes of this video:

The DOJ National Security Division set Admiral Mike Rogers up to take the fall for their unlawful conduct. They preempted Rogers by filing a notification with the FISA Court on 26th September 2016 (look at the pdf). DOJ-NSD head John P Carlin was setting up Rogers as the scapegoat while knowing the NSA FISA compliance officer was still reviewing their conduct. Carlin wouldn’t notify the court unless he was trying to cover something. Carlin then announced his resignation. The NSA compliance officer did not brief Admiral Rogers until 20th Oct 2016. Admiral Rogers notified the FISC on 26th Oct 2016.

October 2016 is a very important month:

DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr was “demoted” in the summer of 2017 after the Inspector General discovered unreported 2016 contacts between Ohr and Russian Dossier author Christopher Steele, as well as contact with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, in October 2016.

Also in October 2016 the DOJ lawyers formatted the FBI information (Steele Dossier etc.) for the Trump FISA application; the head of the NSD, Asst. Attorney General John P Carlin, left his job. It would have specifically been John Carlin’s responsibility to ensure a valid legal basis for the FISA application submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).

In October 2016 the NSA compliance officer completes a review and briefs Rogers of FISA(17) violations, email collection and phone surveillance. Rogers informs FISC – [FISA Court Ruling Link]

Now Look At This – October 2016: On Friday November 18th, 2016, The Washington Post reported on a recommendation in “October” that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position:

The heads of the Pentagon and the nation’s intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed.

The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month, was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

[…] In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower. That caused consternation at senior levels of the administration, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal personnel matters. (link)


Important reminder. Remember, in 2015 Sally Yates blocked any inspector general oversight of the DOJ National Security Division (SEE Pdf HERE). The OIG, Michael Horowitz, requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58-page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

There’s a pretty clear picture here.

Obama’s political operatives within the DOJ-NSD were using FISA 702(17) surveillance “about inquiries” that would deliver email and phone communication for U.S. people (Trump campaign). The NSD unit was working in coordination with the FBI Counterintelligence Unit (Peter Strzok etc.).  In an effort to stop the activity NSA Director Mike Rogers initiated a full 702 compliance review.  However, before the review was complete the DOJ-NSD had enough information for their unlawful FISA warrant which worked retroactively to make the prior FBI surveillance (began in July ’16 per James Comey) lawful. Rogers stopped the process on October 26th 2016. As a result of his not going along, Rogers became a risk; Clapper demanded he be fired.

Ten days after the election, November 17th 2016, Admiral Rogers travels to Trump Tower without telling ODNI James Clapper. Rogers likely informs President-elect Trump of the prior activity by the FBI and DOJ, including the probability that all of Trump Tower’s email and phone communication was being collected.

 On November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers went to see President-Elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower, New York.  –SEE HERE–  Director Rogers never told his boss DNI, James Clapper.

 On November 18th, 2016, the Trump Transition Team announced they were moving all transition activity to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. –SEE HERE– Where they interviewed and discussed the most sensitive positions to fill.  Defense, State, CIA, ODNI.

The transition team was set up in Trump Tower. The very next day, November 18th 2016, Trump moves the entire transition team to Bedminister New Jersey?

Does this make more sense now?

It would appear Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, is up to his eyeballs in this; though he denies participating. The FBI counterintelligence unit was monitoring Trump through FISA 702(17) upstream surveillance collected by a DOJ National Security Division that had no oversight.

The information the FBI collected, and the stuff Fusion GPS was creating via Christopher Steele, was used to create the Russian Narrative and also to manipulate the FISC into giving them a FISA warrant. ie. “The Insurance Policy”.

Ultimately, the people within all of these intercepts is what Devin Nunes discovered when he looked at the “unmasking requests” which were a result of those FISA 702(17) collections on Team Trump. That’s why Devin Nunes was so stunned at what he saw in February and March 2017.

This is why Chairman Devin Nunes is currently gathering evidence.

Radical Islamic Terrorists Threaten to Attack Mormon Tabernacle Temple in San Diego

By Capt Joseph R. John, December 5, 2017: Op Ed # 376  

ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists are in San Diego and have distributed threats on the Internet against the Mormon Tabernacle Temple in University City and to continue genocide against Americans who do not practice the Muslim religion, against all Christians, and against all Americans who celebrate the birth of Christ during the Christmas Season.


The below listed E-mail provides more details.


There have been 210 Radical Islamic Terrorists attacks or planned attacks on US soil perpetrated since 9/11, by Radical Islamic Terrorists, Muslim Refugees, descendants of Muslim Refugees, by Radicalized Islamists, Jihadists who traveled to Syria or Africa to train with Al Shabab, ISIS, Al Q’ieda, and the Muslim Brotherhood.  The countries of origins from which many of the Radical Islamic Terrorists have been entering the US through the UN Muslim Refugee Resettlement Program, from Somalia, Iraq, Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Iran, and Libya.  Except for Iran, those countries had effectively no control over the identity of terrorists operating and training within their country’s borders. 


Over an 8 year period, the 210 attacks on US soil have killed over 127 Americans, wounded over 400 Americans, and have perpetrated rapes on American women, one as young as 6 years old.  The attacks have been covered up by the politically correct Obama administration working in concert with the left of center liberal media establishment.


The Radical Islamic Terrorist perpetrated attacks on US soil occurred in Morganton (NC), Philadelphia (PA), Sacramento (CA), San Bernardino (CA), Oakland (CA), Fresno (CA) San Francisco (CA), Los Angeles (CA), Richmond (CA), Merced (CA), Moore (OK), Kissimmee (FL), Orlando (FL), Mount Pleasant (NJ), West Orange (NJ), Buena Vista (NJ), Fort Hood (TX), Houston (TX), Waltham (MA), Garland (TX), Irving (TX), Port Bolivar (TX), Portland (ME), Chattanooga (TN), Boston (MA), Portland (OR), Minneapolis (MN), St. Cloud (MN), Faribault (MN), Polk County (MN), Jonesboro (GA), Lawrenceville (GA), Toledo (OH), Ashtabula (OH), Columbus (OH), Cincinnati (OH), Glendale (AZ), Phoenix (AZ), Little Rock (AR), Marquette Park (IL), Chicago (IL), Kennewick (WA), Seattle (WA), Skyway (WA), Clarksburg (MD), Aspen Hill (MD), Baltimore (MD), Springfield (VA), Roanoke (VA), Arlington (VA), Fredricksburg (VA), Manassas (VA), Montgomery County (MO), St Louis (MO), Bowling Green (KY), Washington (DC), Detroit (MI), Warren (MI), Flint Michigan Airport (MI), Baton Rouge (LA), Montgomery (AL), Aberdeen, (SD), Hamden (CT), Colorado Springs (CO), Denver (CO), Scottsville (NY), Bingham (NY), Buffalo (NY), Time Square (NYC), Niskayuna (NY), LaGuardia Airport, (NY), Chelsea Area of Manhattan (NY), Twin Falls (ID), Boise (ID), the Panama Canal Zone (Panama), etc


The FBI has reported that hundreds of second generation Muslim refugees who were put on a fast track program to become US Citizens by the Obama administration, who previously left the US to join overseas terrorist organizations such as al-Shaba in Somalia and ISIS & Al Q’ieda in Syria Iraq, were permitted to return without being arrested.  


Over 2000+ terrorist cases have been opened by the FBI in all 50 states, evaluating plots to kill Americans. The FBI has gained convictions in 37 ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist cases, of plots to kill Americans on US soil.  


Former Director of the FBI, James Comey, said fifteen percent (15%) of the 2000+ terrorist cases under investigation (or roughly 300 cases), can be attributed to be coming from the 900,000+ Middle East and African Muslim Refugees, that Obama resettlement in 187 cities throughout the US over the last 8 years.  The Obama administration refused to allow the FBI to interrogate any of the 900,000+ Muslim Refugees resettled in the US, to determine if they had terrorist ties.

On November 29 a jihadist media group published an image suggesting San Diego could be in the crosshairs of terrorists this holiday season. The San Diego California Temple in University City appears to be their target of choice.


An image of a terrorist holding an assault rifle was superimposed on the Mormon temple, which appears to be on fire. The two towering spires rise up on either side of the jihadist. A statement at the bottom of the image reads, “Coming Soon..# San Diego.” The words “Coming Soon” are wrapped in Christmas decorations and splattered with red.

The same media group has recently published 
other calls for terrorism during the holiday season and made threats against other religious sites. On November 22 they published an image of a militant facing the Papal Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican with a wolf and an RPG launcher next to him. Many other calls for lone-wolf attacks were published, including vehicular attacks in Manhattan and another targeting the Vatican with the words “Christmas Blood.”

An increased police presence was noticed around the temple in University City since news of the image broke. The temple’s website states at the top of the page, 
“Temple closed today and tomorrow.”…………

In Recognition of the Marine Corps Birthday on Nov 10th, and Veterans Day on Nov 11th

By Capt Joseph R. John, November 9, 2017, Op Ed # 375

We honor all US Marines not only on November 10th, the US Marine Corps’ 242nd Birthday, but on every day.  Over the last 9 years, 31 of the 114 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress who ran for Congress were members of the US Marine Corps; they are listed on the Endorsements and Alumni pages of our Web site.  

Seven of 31 Marines that were endorsed as Combat Veterans For Congress were elected to Congress.  Those who have served their country in combat as US Marines, and subsequently continued their service to the Republic as members of US House of Representatives are Cong John P. Kline (Col-USMC/Ret), Cong Paul Cook (Col-USMC/Ret), Cong Duncan D. Hunter (Maj-USMCR), Cong Michael Coleman (Maj-USMC), Cong Michael J. Gallagher (Capt-USMC), Cong Steve T. Kuykendall (Capt-USMC), and Cong Michael Grimm (Sgt-USMC).

On November 11th, we ask all Americans to remember and recognize all Veterans who have served their country in the US Armed Forces during the Republic’s 242 year history.  We especially “Honor” those members of the US Armed Forces who gave their last full measure of devotion in defense of the Republic.  Veterans and active duty personnel can click on the below listed link to learn of the many deals and discounts that restaurants, businesses, and special attractions are extending, to thank them for their service on Veterans Day, and in some cases discounts are good throughout the Veterans Day weekend.  


An average of 22 Veterans commit suicide every day, many of them are suffering from PTSD as a result of their duty on foreign fields in combat, and many have not been able to obtain timely or adequate medical treatment.

By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to listen to a powerful message delivered by President Ronald Reagan about “A Soldier and His Pledge.”

Veterans, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”

If you have the opportunity to recognize a Veteran’s service in defense of the Republic---we encourage you to thank that Veteran for their service.

Hillary Behind The “Fake” Russian Dossier That Created The “False” Russian Scandal

By Capt Joseph R. John, October 30, 2017: Op Ed # 374 

In May 2016, Hillary Clinton, Debbie Wasserman Schultz--Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and Hillary's Presidential Campaign paid Fusion GPS (a firm Vladimir Putin engaged to destroy his political enemies in Russia), to create a list of unsubstantiated and unverifiable allegations against Donald Trump, and that he colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton for President.  


For a year, the DNC, and Hillary's Presidential Campaign, employed key Obama administration appointees and the left of center liberal media establishment to promote the hoax that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary in the Presidential election.  


To date, there is not one shred of evidence to prove the unsubstantiated hoax that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary for President.


The explosive details in the below listed report were uncovered by excellent investigative journalism and meticulous research by Adam Entous, Devlin Barrett and Rosalind Helderman on the liberal Washington Post's newspaper staff.  


Fusion GPS, a Putin linked firm, was hired by Marc Elias, the General Counsel for Hillary’s Presidential Campaign (Elias is a member of the Seattle based Perkins Coie Law Firm, with long and close ties to Obama).  Fusion GPS was paid up to $12 million by Hillary's Presidential Campaign and the DNC to develop a "fake" Russian Dossier on Donald Trump and to spread unsubstantiated lies about him to the American people.  


Hillary hired the same foreign research firm to spread lies about Donald Trump, that Putin hired to spread lies about his political enemies within Russia, like Putin's enemy, Russian Lawyer Magnitsky, who ended up dying in a Russian prison.


Hillary’s Presidential campaign hired and paid foreigners, British and Russian citizens, to work for and support the Hillary Presidential Campaign.  Hillary repeatedly failed to comply with Federal Campaign Finance Laws when she filed false Quarterly Federal Election Commission (FEC) Reports that did not disclose that she employed foreigners and paid them millions of dollars----a violation of 52 USC 30101.  


Those intentional and repeated violations of Federal Campaign Finance Laws were criminal conspiracies.  Hillary should be criminally charged for hiding the fact that Russian and British foreigners were paid millions of dollars to help her campaign develop lies about her opponent in the 2016 presidential campaign.


Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British Intelligence Officer, who headed the Russian desk for MI-6.  Steele had ties to Russian Intelligence Officers, and was paid to get Russians to develop salacious lies about Donald Trump.  


Steele worked with and paid senior Russian Foreign Ministry Officers and senior Russian Intelligence Officers to help him compile a ”fake” Russian Dossier with “false” allegations that the Kremlin was engaged in an active effort to collude with the Trump Presidential Campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton.  


In fact, because Hillary’s campaign was paying Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, and through them to Russian Government officials, Hillary was actually colluding with Russia to interfere in the US Presidential campaign to defeat Donald Trump.  


It was corruption and a violation of Federal Election Laws by Hillary, the DNC, and Hillary's Presidential Campaign---they were actually doing everything they had been accusing Donald Trump of doing for over a year.


Hilary Clinton had Fusion GPS make it seem like the uncorroborated and the unsubstantiated information on Donald Trump was sourced from Russian intelligence.  Hillary’s campaign was paying Russians to spread Russian propaganda and disinformation to Americans in the US during the 2016 US Presidential campaign.


Steele handed over a 35 page “fake” Russian Dossier with unsubstantiated and unverifiable misinformation to Marc Elias.  Senator John McCain was given the “fake” Russian Dossier, and Senator McCain turned it over to then-Director of the FBI James Comey to verify its accuracy.  Comey treated the DNC and Hillary, who bought and paid for Russian propaganda, as if it was legitimate intelligence.


Comey handed over Steele’s “fake” Russian Dossier to Obama.  Obama issued Executive Order 12333 to allow more agencies to have access to intelligence data.  Obama then distributed the Russian propaganda to all US Government agencies, to his National Intelligence and CIA Directors, and employed the left of center liberal media establishment to spread salacious and unsubstantiated lies about Donald Trump to the American people.  


CIA Director John Brenan and National Intelligence Director James Clapper were directed to treat the “fake” Russian Dossier, created by the same research firm that Putin used to attack his enemies, as legitimate intelligence.  Brennan and Clapper weaponized the "fake" Russian intelligence by confirming that Donald trump colluded with Russia to "intervene" and defeat Hillary in the 2016 Presidential election.  


Thus began the “fake” Russian Scandal and hoax, that ultimately resulted in the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller to prove a non-existent Russian Scandal, with the goal of impeaching President Donald Trump.


Clapper asked Comey to inform Donald Trump that US Intelligence Agencies had a Russian Dossier with salacious information about him.  Comey’s meeting with Donald Trump was then leaked to the national press corps, in order to expose the unverified and uncorroborated information in the “fake” Russian Dossier, alleging it was legitimate intelligence.  


Just weeks before the November election, Obama made the "fake” Russian Dossier public.  Buzzfeed then released the false allegations that the Russian government had supported and assisted Donald Trump to defeat Hillary, and circulated many other false allegation about Donald Trump to elected officials, intelligence agencies, and the left of center liberal media establishment. 


Obama passed off the “fake” Russian Dossier, funded by the DNC and Hillary’s campaign and developed by Putin’s research firm, as legitimate intelligence.  Obama authorized the issuance of FISA Warrants to tap the phone lines of the Trump campaign, record intercepted conversations of members of the Trump campaign staff, and to unmask over 1000 American citizens in violation of US Federal Laws.


Despite the fact that unverified allegations were inserted in the “fake” Russian Dossier’s, that Dossier was used as evidence by Comey to convince a federal judge to grant the FBI a warrant to secretly monitor Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page.  CNN reported that Comey continued to cite the “fake” Russian Dossier as a valid source in briefings he gave to members of Congress. 


In October 2016, according to Byron York of the Washington Examiner, a few weeks before the November 2016 election, Comey was approached by Christopher Steele.  Comey and Steele reached an agreement for the FBI to pay Steele to continue supplying information on Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia.  Comey pulled out of that arrangement when Steele was publicly identified in news reports. 


For over one year, millions of dollars have been spent in Congressional investigations, and additional millions have been spent to fund the Special Counsel's massive staff to investigate a non-existent Russian Scandal.  At the same time, the serious work of running the US government has been disrupted by Democratic Senators who have refused to confirm hundreds of Trump administration appointees. 


Hillary Clinton has been caught doing what she accused Donald Trump of doing----working with Russia to interfere in and affect the outcome of the US Presidential election.  


America’s National Security was sold out by Hillary and the DNC spreading the false contents in a “fake” Russian Dossier as being valid intelligence.  The lies about the Russian Scandal supported by Hillary, Obama, the Democrats Party, Brenan, Clapper, and Comey accomplished Putin’s goal of dividing the American people and creating uncertainty in American elections.


The damage has been incalculable.  Hillary, Obama’s Intelligence Agency Directors, the DNC, and the left of center liberal media establishment lied to the American people for over one year while spreading Putin's Russian disinformation. 


Even after the November 8, 2016 election, in order to delegitimize the new Trump administration, the defunct Hillary Presidential Campaign and the DNC continued to have Fusion GPS seed and promote uncorroborated falsehoods about Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia.


Hillary initially denied any connections to development of the “fake’ Russian Dossier, yet liberal New York Times reporters, Kenneth Vogel and Maggie Haberman, accused Hillary’s Presidential Campaign and specifically Marc Elias, of a cover up.   


On October 25th, a complaint was filed with the Federal Election Commission that charged Hillary’s Presidential Campaign and the Democratic National Committee with violating Federal Campaign Finance Laws when they failed to disclose the payments of millions of dollars made to foreigners and British and Russians citizens to create the “fake” Russian Dossier.  


What did Hillary know about her campaign and the DNC’s expenditure of $12 million, paid to one research firm to illegally employ foreigners to work for her presidential campaign, and when did she know it?

My Fellow Americans, 

    Over the last 9 years, we’ve interviewed 444 Combat Veterans from 50 states, 114 Combat Veterans from 38 states were endorsed, 82 of whom won their primary elections, and 32 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress from 22 states have served in Congress (3 US Senators and 29 US Congressmen).  


    As we approach the 2018 Congressional election, 22 Combat Veterans For Congress from 15 states have been endorsed.  With your financial support, we will be able to recruit, evaluate, endorse, and campaign for some of the 20 Combat Veterans from 11 states currently under evaluation. By November 2018, we expect the number of Combat Veterans we will be evaluating to increase to 40. 


    The results of the 2018 Congressional election will determine the makeup of Congress and whether the members of Congress: 


Will fund a secure southern border wall to prevent drug smugglers, Radical Islamic Terrorists, human trafficking, and Illegal Aliens from entering the US: 


Will reduce the personal federal income taxes oppressing hard working Americans, and reduce the highest corporate taxes in the world:


Will determine if the Free Enterprise System, which built the most effective economic engine in world history, will continue, or if The Free Enterprise System will be replaced by the Socialist State that Obama envisions:


Will replace Obamacare with an affordable healthcare system that will give Americans the freedom to select their own health insurance:  


Will pass legislation to cut off federal grants to sanctuary cities that refuse to abide by US Federal Immigration Laws: 


Will cancel sequestration that is destroying the strength of the US Armed Forces and its “Combat Effectiveness”:  


Will rein in the reckless and out of control spending by an irresponsible Congress that has driven the National Debt to over $20 trillion in the last 8 years: 


Will halt the 8-year discriminatory practice of excluding Christians Refugees from the Middle East from entering the US, while only allowing hundreds of thousands Middle East/African Muslim Refugees to resettle in 187 cities at a cost of billions of tax payer dollars:  


      The “Endorsement” and “Alumni” pages of our Website lists bios and photos for each of the 32 endorsed and elected Combat Veterans For Congress.  Each raised their right hand, swore to protect and defend the US Constitution, and they still abide by that sacred oath, while supporting the Judeo-Christian beliefs upon which the nation was founded.  


     To paraphrase President Ronald Reagan, most people go through their lives wondering if they’ve made a difference.  The endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress have no need to wonder if they’ve made a difference.  


      You too, can make an important difference; and by your support, we will be able to help elect the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress. 


      This organization has never had paid employees, we have always been supported by motivated volunteers.  All donations are used to help recruit, evaluate, endorse, and campaign for endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress.    


       “Only once a year,” do we make this appeal for financial support.  Please consider making an important difference, and help change the makeup of Congress. 



       At a minimum, please donate in “any” amount that you can afford by going to the Donation page of our Web site and make an on-line donation.  Whether your gift is $10, $20, $50, $100 or more, we would be deeply grateful for your financial support. 


       The future of the Republic depends on engaged Patriotic American citizens!  If not us, who?  If not now, when?  


      The “Endorsee of PAC page” of our Website lists many well-known and famous Americans, who have endorsed our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution----please join with that very impressive list of Patriotic Americans and support our efforts to change the makeup of Congress!  


       At one time in their lives, each endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”  You can thank them for their service by helping to elect them.

Historian Ties Democrats To Marxist Plan To Collapse U.S. From Inside

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 6, 2017: Op Ed # 366  

The Patriotic Democrat Party of President Truman, President Kennedy, and President Johnson was radicalized over the last 8 years, by the Obama administration, and Nazi Collaborator George Soros.  The below listed article by Historian, Charles Sasser, outlines the policies and leadership of the new Democratic Party.  America is under siege from within, with the two new leaders of the Democratic Party's plan to work with Socialists, Marxists, and Communists to subvert the US Constitutional form of government, working from “inside the wire”, as described below and with the support of the traitors to the Republic listed in this Op Ed.    


The plan is being promoted by the Organization For Action (OFA), and is being funded by Nazi Collaborator Soros’ Tides Foundation to fundamentally change the nation that was established by the Founding Fathers.  The goal is to change the USA to a one party, Socialist State; Socialism throughout history has been Marxist inspired.  Americans should not be surprised by Obama’s continuing effort to change America’s Republican form of government to Socialist State.  The Democrat Party and the left of center liberal media establishment carefully hid Obama’s radical Marxist background from American voters for 8 years.  


In his youth, Obama was mentored “every day” after school in the home of the Anti-American Secretary of the Communist Party USA, Frank Marshal Davis.  Obama developed close ties with Anti-Jewish former PLO Spokesman, Rashid Ismail Khalidi.  Obama maintained close ties with the Anti-American domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and his wife, a convicted terrorist, Bernadine Dorn, and began his political career at a fundraiser in their living room.  Convicted felon, Tony Rezko, with close ties with the mafia, used mirrors to acquire Obama’s Chicago home.  For 20 years, Obama sat through the hateful Anti-American sermons by his spiritual mentor, Anti-American preacher Jeremiah Wright.  Obama became a devout disciple and advocate of the Radical Anti-American Marxist, Saul Alinsky, and used his book, “Rules For Radicals”, as his text while indoctrinating radicals leftist thugs who demonstrated in Chicago. 


Two new radical leaders of the Democratic National Committee, Keith Ellison and Tom Perez were hand-picked by Obama with the support of Nazi Collaborator George Soros.  They took control of the Democratic Party from moderates and Blue Dog Democrats, and moved it radically left.  George Soros, Bill Ayers, Andy Zee, Bernie Sanders, Al Sharpton, Valerie Jarrett, Bob Avakian, Obama, and Hillary Clinton supported the radical movement left.  

The Democratic Party policies have shifted its support to Socialist, Marxist, Radical Black Nationalist Groups, The Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR.  Perez and Ellison have been supporting anarchist rallies, demonstration, and violent street riots that have been taking place nationally, since President Trump was inaugurated.  

OFA, Soros, Ellison, and Perez are promoting the openly vicious “Trump Resistance Movement”, while employing the domestic terrorist organization, ANITFA as its violent foot soldiers, to execute Saul Alinsky’s Marxist policies in 400 planned street demonstrations in 2017.


The vicious “Trump Resistance Movement” is the beneficiary of an anti-Trump hostile left of center liberal media establishment.  The “Trump Resistance Movement” goal is to disenfranchise 64 million Trump voters.  For one year, with no proof, they have alleged that President Trump colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary in order to destabilize and delegitimize the Trump administration.  OFA has been focused on bringing down a duly elected President of the United States for the first time in 242 years.

Organizations funding the “Trump Resistance Movement” are Nazi Sympathizer George Soros’ pro-Communist, Obama’s “Organization For Action” (OFA), Hillary Clinton’s “Onward Together” (OT), the ANTIFA Terrorist group (OT gave ANTIFA $800,000), Color of Change (the group planning to destroy 350+ Confederate statues in the US), Indivisible (the group working against Congressmen who support President Trump), By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), Bill Ayer’s Marxist Weatherman Underground Anarchist group, Ultra Violet (a women’s radical leftist group), Act Blue, The Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, The Advocate Fund, The World Worker’s Party (a hard corps Marxist-Leninist Group that rioted with ANTIFA in Charlottesville), and The Communist Industrial Workers of The World (the Chicago based Marxist, Anarchist, and Socialist Organization).  


The foundations funding the “Trump Resistance Movement” are The Ford Foundation ($2.35 million), WK Kellogg Foundation ($3 million), The Bauman Foundation, Nazi Sympathizer George Soros’ pro-Communist Open Society Foundation ($1.75 million to ANTIFA’s Center for Community Change Action), Nazi Collaborator George Soros’ pro-Communist Tides Foundations, California Endowment ($524,000), New Media Venture, Philah Thropy Project, Propel Capital, The Public Welfare Foundation, The Compton Foundation, The Arkay Foundation, and the Emergent Fund (funded by the 3 leftist groups---the Threshold Foundation, the Solidarity Network, and The Women’s Donor Network). 

Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, the newly elected Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee is anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, and pro-Nation of Islam.  As a Muslim, Ellison believes in Shariah Law and stated that he does not respect or believe in the US Constitution, “because its wordings were inspired by the Bible”.  Ellison is a member of the Nation of Islam and has worked very closely with Louis Farrakhan for many years.  Farrakhan is the rabid anti-Semitic and anti-white leader of the Nation of Islam.  Ellison has been intertwined with CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood for over 10 years; the Muslim Brotherhood paid for Ellison’ pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.  


Ellison declared himself a supporter, ally, and defender of Communist Terrorists.  He organized a fundraisings event for Communist terrorist, Sara Jane Olson, a member of the Communist movement Symbionese Liberation Army.  Ellison defends Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, who is wanted by the FBI for murdering a police officer, and is currently opposing extradition from her safe haven in Communist Cuba.  Ellison has been close to the Communist Party USA for many years – even holding a fundraiser in the home of Minnesota Communist Party Chairman, Erwin Marquit.  Ellison has even written articles for the Communist Party Website.  When President George W. Bush was in office, Ellison compared him to Adolf Hitler. 

The Radical Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, was Obama’s extreme radical left Secretary of Labor.  Tom Perez was a longtime leader of CASA de Maryland, a militant leftist “immigrant’s rights
 group”.  When Perez was the leader of CASA, Hugo Chavez, the Communist President of Venezuela was sending him one million dollars a year from Venezuela’s oil revenue, Chavez directed Perez to use the funds to keep the Southern border of the US wide open.  Perez has a long history of anti-white views, including making the declaration that “white people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.”   

Perez previously served as the Assistant Attorney General under Attorney General, Eric Holder, and supported Holder’s repeated verbal and policy degradations of the US Constitution.  He supported Holder’s execution of the “Fast and Furious Operation” scandal and supported Holder’s prevention of the investigation of rampant voter fraud during the two national election during which Obama was elected.  Those actions by Holder, led Congress to vote Holder “In Contempt of Congress”.  Holder was the first Attorney General in 240 years to be voted  “In Contempt of Congress.”  

Ambassador Valladares, the former US Ambassador to the United Nations on Human Rights, stated Perez is a racist who hates the Bible, and that he is anti-Semitic.  He said Perez’s goals have been to destroy the free market economy of the United States, to destroy the Christian society of the United States, and to turn the United States into a Marxist nation.  Ambassador Valladares further stated about Perez and Ellison, that: “The two new leaders of the Democratic National Committee are both racist, anti-Semitic, who ignore the Constitution, and the history of America.  

Ambassador Valladares said both of them have been and are allies of terrorist movements; they have shared the hatred for the United States and its laws.  They complement each other in their hatred of the Bible.  They wish to sweep away this American society, with ideological mobs, terrorists, Communists, Radical Muslims, and the scum of the country whose goal it is to destroy it (the Republic).  They joined the ranks of the Democratic Party, and with the complicit silence of the (former) leaders of the it (the Democratic Party), they took possession of it (the Democratic Party).” (
April 25, 2017 by Frank de Varona - Bear Witness Central).  

The corrupt left of center liberal media establishment continues to cover up the backgrounds of Keith Ellison and Tom Perez, the two new Radical Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, Marxist leaders of the Democrat National Committee.  Millions of Americans have no idea just how radical, anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, and pro-Marxist, Keith Ellison and Tom Perez are.  Perez and Ellison are following the radical Marxist philosophy of Saul Alinsky. 

Obama and Hillary are long time disciples of Saul Alinsky.  Hillary wrote her senior thesis in support of Alinsky’s radical Marxist philosophy as outlined in his book, “Rules For Radicals”; it is a book of pure evil, and Alinsky dedicated the book to Lucifer.  Hillary worked very closely with Alinsky during and after college.  Obama taught Community Organizing in Chicago using “Rules For Radicals” as his playbook, while training radical leftists and Marxists in his classes to demonstrate in the streets of Chicago in front of commercial banks; they were very successful in extorting money from the banks.  “Rules For Radicals” was the playbook for the Obama administration for 8 years, and is now it’s the playbook for OFA.

OFA operates out of 250 offices across the nation, with 32,525 members, and say they have 5 million volunteers and 14 field organizers.  OFA is operating with a growing war chest of $40+ million and is receiving additional massive funding from Nazi Collaborator Soros’ pro-Communist “Open Society Foundation”, Soros’ “”, and Soros’ “Tides Foundation.”  

OFA has developed an on-line Anti-Trump Training Program, and runs a 6 week Anti-Trump Fellowship Program (there are over 1000 graduates of the Anti-Trump Training Program, with hundreds of new enrollees being trained).  OFA is leading the mobilization and coordination of the “Trump Resistance Movement”.  From January 20,  2017 to December 31, 2017, OFA scheduled 400 street demonstrations, in 42 states. 

OFA has been organizing and coordinating 400 demonstrations in 42 states with the below listed leftist groups, while employing ANTIFA Terrorist as their violent foot soldiers.  The leftist groups include the Communist Party USA (who endorsed both Obama and Hillary for President), the Marxist Leninist Communist Workers Party Front “ANSWER”, the Revolutionary Communist Party, The Communist Party’s “Progressive Unity Fund”
the Communist World Workers Party, the Communist Industrial Workers of the World, Bill Ayer’s Marxist Weather Underground anarchists, Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party, Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network”, Socialists, Progressives (the new age name Communists have labeled themselves to mislead Americans as to their true identity), The World Worker’s Party, Color of Change, CAIR, The Muslim Brotherhood (MB ), Ultra-Violent, La Raza, and SIEU. 

The new extreme radically left, Socialist/Marxist Democratic Party “no longer supports” the US Constitution, “Freedom of Speech” at rallies or in classrooms, they object to voter registration only for American citizens, oppose requiring picture IDs in order for citizens to vote, and opposes closure of the wide open southern border to prevent terrorists, drug dealers, and Illegal Aliens from entering the US.  The corrupt left of center liberal media establishment has done an excellent job of concealing just how radically left the Democratic Party has become over the last 8 years.  

Approximately 70 elected Democratic members of Congress identify themselves as Progressives and are supporters of either Black Lives Matter, La Raza, the New Black Panther Party, The Nation of Islam, Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network”, CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, and with sympathizers of Communist Cuba.  There are plenty of photos of those 70 Congress members on the Internet refusing to rise to participate in the Pledge Allegiance to the Flag, when the American Flag is honored by the 435 members of Congress. 

The Democratic City Council and the Democratic Mayor of Charlottesville, VA communicated with Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA representatives weeks before the violent riots erupted in Charlottesville on August 12, 2017.  Young Democrats worked hand-in-hand with Black Lives Matter organized protests in the streets in St. Louis that continued for many weeks from mid-September on.  The Charlottesville riots and the riots in St. Louis and Berkley were funded by Nazi Sympathizer George Soros’ pro-Communist Open Society Foundation and Tides Foundations.  The rallies turned into bloody riots, destroying property, supporting brutal beatings, promoting the setting fires to buildings & cars, assaulting police officers, stabbing targeted victims, attacking peaceful demonstrators, and focused on closing down free speech.

The “REAL SCANDAL” facing the nation today, is not the “False Russian Scandal” being promoted every day by the New Radical Democratic Party, Obama’s Organization For Action, Nazi Collaborator George Soros, Hillary Clinton’s Onward Together, Marxists, the Communist Party USA, and Socialists.  They are being supported by the outright lies by the left of center liberal media establishment, in their support for Obama’s Master Plan to disenfranchise 64 million American Citizens voters, and in their drive to remove a duly elected President of the United States for the first time in the Republic’s 242 year US History.  

The “REAL SCANDAL”, is that the Republican leaders in Congress, Cong Paul Ryan and Sen Mitch McConnell, continue to ignore the “Real Russian Scandal”, that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s transferred 20% of the United States’ uranium production to Putin in Russia with the approval and support of Obama.  As reported by the New York Times, nine investors in the “Russian Uranium Scandal” funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation as a payoff.
  Instead of Ryan and McConnell calling for the  appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the “Russian Uranium Scandal”, they have failed to support President Trump in his attempts to deal with the issues he was elected to fix, by 64 million Americans.

The New Radical Democratic Party has been able to frustrate many of President Trump’s campaign pledges, because Cong Ryan and Sen McConnell have been reluctant to support President Trump by:

Funding the secure southern border wall to keep out drug smugglers, Radical Islamic Terrorists, human slavers and traffickers, and Illegal Aliens,

Reducing the high personal federal income tax oppressing hard working Americans and in reducing the highest corporate taxes in the world,

Replacing Obamacare with an affordable healthcare system that will give Americans the freedom to select their own health insurance, 

Passing legislation to cut off federal grants to sanctuary cities that refuse to abide by US Federal Immigration Laws,

Canceling sequestration that is weakening & destroying the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces,

Reining in reckless spending by an irresponsible Congress, that’s driven the National Debt up to over $20 trillion in the last 8 years,

Supporting enforcement of all US Federal Immigration Laws,

Supporting the appointment of 553 key Executive Branch vacancies, 

Passing a bill to repair the crumbling infrastructure, and so much more,


Halting the discriminatory practice of excluding Christians Refugees from the Middle East, while only allowing hundreds of thousands Middle East/African Muslim Refugees to resettle in 187 cities at a cost of billions of tax payer dollars.

Charles Sasser

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” declared Barack Obama during a campaign stop on Oct. 30, 2008, five days before the election that would make him the most powerful man in the world.

The concept of “fundamental transformation” has been discussed vigorously since then, especially in light of the many sweeping changes Obama brought to the country over his eight years in office.

Historian Charles Sasser sees Obama’s “fundamental transformation” in the context of an older and more sinister plan articulated by a pair of Marxist activists nearly 50 years ago.

“What we’re seeing now is this fundamental transformation, and it goes all the way back to [Herbert] Marcuse,” Sasser said during a recent appearance on the “Prophecy Hour” radio program. “In the 1960s when he  [Marcuse] was talking about the ‘long march through the institutions,’ this is what Obama was talking about – the fundamental transformation of America.”

The “long march through the institutions” was coined by student activist Rudi Dutschke in the late 1960s to describe his strategy for bringing about the conditions for a Marxist revolution in the United States.

The plan was for Marxists to infiltrate all of America’s major institutions – politics, the news media, the education system, the churches, the entertainment industry – and slowly subvert those institutions from within, thereby subverting America.

Marcuse, a prominent Marxist intellectual associated with the Frankfurt School, agreed with Dutschke’s strategy and brought it to wider attention in his 1972 book “Counterrevolution and Revolt.”

Sasser, author of the brand new book “Crushing the Collective: The Last Chance to Keep America Free and Self-Governing,” pointed out Hillary Clinton has expressed shades of this idea as well. During a 2015 speech, the soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee declared, “Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”

The imposition of political correctness is an integral part of this long march through the institutions, according to Sasser. Viewed from this perspective, the march is making excellent progress in certain areas.

“Let’s look at our education,” Sasser said. “We’ve got safe spaces; we’ve got all these people who refuse to listen to anyone who has an opinion different from their own. They will riot, break windows, everything else to keep people from free speech.”

The Marxists are also slowly but surely undermining Christianity, according to Sasser.

“In 2012, when Obama was nominated for a second term, the Democratic National Committee took God out of their platform, and when someone proposed that they put God back in the platform, the entire stadium [at the Democratic National Convention] booed the idea of putting God in the platform,” he recalled.

“Now, look a few months later: There was a prayer at an abortion rally, and they prayed to God for God to help on abortions.”

The radical leftists are subverting the political arena as well. In “Crushing the Collective” Sasser reveals a long list of organizations through which “socialist and authoritarian radicals” are working to undermine America.

This includes Socialist International, whose leadership includes or has included Democratic Party figures such as Howard Dean, Madeleine Albright and Tom Daschle.

It includes the Congressional Progressive Caucus, founded by admitted socialist Bernie Sanders. The CPC included 83 Democratic House members in 2010.

Sasser also singles out the Institute for Policy Studies, an old and influential far-left think tank whose membership has included many current and former congressmen, including Leon Panetta, Obama’s defense secretary and CIA director.

“Socialist International, the Progressive Party – look at the Progressive Party a little closer,” Sasser urged the “Prophecy Hour” audience. “Progressive Democrats of America, the Congressional Progressive Caucus – look at how many of those people in there are socialists and Marxists. Nobody wants to do that because it’s politically incorrect to say anything about it.”

So, what can Americans do to beat back the long Marxist march? Sasser is not optimistic; he does not believe conservatives can ever take back the cultural institutions now that those institutions have succumbed to the left.

Nor does he believe a single American president can stop the long march. Not even Ronald Reagan could stop it.

“Reagan was successful in what he did, but then as soon as he was gone, the march through the institutions continued, and I think we’re going to see the same thing now,” Sasser commented.

He noted the radical left is stronger than ever, and they seem to sense that.

“Obama said, ‘Now is our time.'” Sasser said. “Yes, now is their time. They think that they have the upper hand, that they can make America socialist, and I think they’re going to do that because we don’t fight back. We’re afraid to say anything because of political correctness.”

Sasser, who has spent much of his life studying history, knows societies that fall as far into the clutches of collectivism as the U.S. has do not bounce back well. They may survive, but in a diminished form. Italy is still around, for example, but it is nothing like the Roman Empire. Iran is a regional power, but it is not as prestigious as the great Persian empires of the past.

“I want to believe that Trump may be another Reagan, that we may have a chance,” he said. “But then I look at the institutions. Like Newt Gingrich said, once they own the cultural institutions, they’re impossible to regain, and if they own all of the institutions, including many of our churches right now, if they do that we can’t retake them if we can’t crush this idea of the collective.”



ANTIFA Is Tearing Down US Historical Monuments---Leading Violent Riots On Columbus Day

By Capt Joseph R. John, October 9, 2017: Op Ed # 372

ANTIFA demonstrators are the violent terrorist “Foot Soldiers” for Communists; the logo on the ANTIFA flag was created by the German Communist Party.  ANTIFA’s “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement” (RAM) has been leading the coordinated national effort to deface and destroy over 350 US historical monuments.  


There is a startling parallel between today's violent ANTIFA left-wing terrorist rioters, and the brutal tactics used by the Nazi Brown Shirts, Mussolini Fascist mobs, and the Communist thugs of yesteryear.  The left of center liberal media establishment, especially the San Francisco Chronicle and the Huffington Post, have been covering up ANTIFA’s Communist ideology and affiliations.   


Today, on Columbus Day, ANTIFA terrorists are calling for violence and coordinating the plan to destroy statues of Christopher Columbus nationwide.  The demonstration is Un-American.  ANTIFA terrorists have already vandalized 5 statues of Christopher Columbus in NYC, including the larger than life statue of Columbus in Central Park.  


RAM claims slavery still exists and draws its inspiration from cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal who murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in December 1981.  RAM is calling for revolutionary warfare within the US, saying “Our historical mission is clear, we must burn down American plantations once and for all.”  That open call for violent revolutionary change, meets the definition of terrorism in accordance with 18 USC § 2331; supporting such a revolution would be treason (WND Exclusive Oct 4, 2017).


Besides leading the coordinated national effort to deface and destroying over 350 US historical monuments, ANTIFA terrorists are also targeting the beleaguered police forces across the nation. ANTIFA activists have always held a special hatred for Police Officers.  The ANTIFA slogan is A. C. A. B. ; it is short for “All Cops Are Bastards.”  ANTIFA recently participated in a protest in Nashville, TN against the Fraternal Order of Police.  TORCH is the name for the terrorist network that coordinates ANTIFA terrorists across the nation.  TORCH, explicitly compares Police Officers to “White Supremacists”. (WND Exclusive Oct 4, 2017) 


Andy Zee, who is on the Advisory Board of Refuse Fascism, is the leader of the ANTIFA terrorist organization.  Yvette/Yvonne Felarca, a middle school teacher, was the ANTIFA leader of the violent Berkley riots; she was arrested for a second time for leading violent demonstrations.  Sunsara Taylor, a Maoist, in the leadership of the Communist Revolutionary Party, was also one of the leaders of the Berkley riots.  In August 2017, ANTIFA terrorist rioted in Charlotte, VA and violently attacked peaceful demonstrators trying to protect the historical monuments: the fake press attacked President Trump for stating the demonstrators included leftist anarchists.


Woody Kaine, a member of the ANTIFA terrorist organization and the youngest son of Senator Tim Kaine, was arrested in Minnesota for participating in a violent demonstration.  He was wearing black and a mask to hide his identity.  Tim Kane, a radical leftist, was Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Vice Presidential running mate during the 2016 presidential campaign. 


Violent ANTIFA terrorists, the Revolutionary Communist Party, the Communist Party USA, Black Lives Matter, and other anarchists have been recruited and transported for 9 months to participate in OFA’s demonstrations, and will be transported to the remainder of the 400 violent street demonstrations in 42 states that have been scheduled by OFA for  the 2017 calendar year.  The violent ANTIFA communist foot soldiers are being paid $25/day by Nazi-Collaborator Soros’s Tides and Open Society Foundations.  


George Soros’ Tides Foundation and Opens Society Foundation are funding ANTIFA terrorists, while OFA has been including ANTIFA’s foot soldiers in its 400 demonstrations.  The demonstrations are against conservative speakers on campus, and in opposition to “Freedom of Speech.”  Nazi Collaborator Soros transported and paid ANTIFA Terrorists rioters, Black Lives Matter rioters, and the Revolution Communist Party rioters to go to Ferguson, MO, Charlottesville, VA, and in Berkley, California.  Hillary Clinton moved $800,000 from her defunct presidential campaign—to her new organization, Onward Together (OT).  OT used the funds from Hillary to support four different ANTIFA organizations.   


On November 4th, ANTIFA terrorists and the Revolution Communist Party will make the jump from terrorism to initiate an open violent revolution.  The largest, most violent bloody national riots are being meticulously planned by OFA to take place on November 4, 2017, because it is the 100th Anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, in order to shock the nation.  Those violent and bloody demonstrations will be staged to extend for at least 4 days, with the hope they will never end (the leaders of the ANTIFA terrorists, and the Revolutionary Communist Party have recently stated, “Americans haven’t seen anything as yet”).  


The Revolutionary Communist Party leader, Bob Avakian, will join with Andy Zee, the leader of the ANTIFA terrorists, and other leftist groups to kick off a revolution in the United States on November 4, 2017.  Bob Avakian, the leader of the Revolution Communist Party, wrote a pamphlet entitled “The Coming Civil War and Repolarization In the Present Era.”  On November 4th ANTIFA leftist demonstrators will be transported to riot locations, and will be paid by Nazi Collaborator George Soros to revolt against the government of the United States.  


Some of the participants in the revolution are Black Lives Matter, the Communist Party USA, ANSWER, Socialists, The Progressive Unity Fund, the Weather Underground, The Communist World Workers Party, the Communist Industrial Workers of the World, the New Black Panther Party, La Raza, the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, etc.

The National Anthem Protests -- Do Facts Matter?

By Capt Joseph R. John, October 6, 2017: Op Ed # 371 

Prior to this weekend’s professional football games, we are sharing Larry Elder’s below listed, well researched article.  Larry’s findings defuse the left of center’s liberal media establishment’s oft printed articles that incite the black youth in the nation to hate Police Officers, and threatens the lives of Police Officers.  


The dishonest media continues to print one sided, anti-police, reports of people committing crimes, leading the reader and the TV viewers to believe Police Officers are targeting black Americans.  Yet each year more white men are killed by Police Officers performing their duties to protect the public, than black men.  The overwhelming number of white men and black men who are shot by Police Officers are armed and were using their weapons or vehicles to threaten the lives of the innocent civilians or Police Officers.  As Larry Elder writes in his article, “Facts do matter.”  


Football fans continue to wonder why professional football players in the NFL are so quick to demonstrate against Police Officers by taking the knee, dishonoring the National Anthem, the American Flag, and Combat Veterans, through the ages, who gave their last full measure of devotion to protect their fellow Americans on foreign fields of fire.  


Football fans also wonder why Roger Goodell refuses to apply the NFL Rule on pages A62 & A63 of the NFL Operations Manual directing Professional Players to stand and hold their helmets in their left hand when the National Anthem is played before each game, when at the same time for one year, Goodell allowed Colin Kaepernick to wear socks depicting Police Officers as pigs in violation of NFL Rules.  


There are 32 football teams in the NFL.  There are 53 professional football players on each team, for a total of 1696 professional football players in the NFL.  Out of those 1696 players, 871 professional football players are convicted felons.  Could that be one of the reasons why certain individual professional football players take a knee to demonstrate against Police Officers, who incidentally protect them when they are on the field during each professional football game.


Larry Elder honors the American Flag, the National Anthem, and Combat Veterans through the ages, who have given their last full measure of devotion to protect their fellow Americans in the Republic.  We honor Larry Elder’s father, who loved his country and set a fine example for his son to follow; he was US Marine who served his country in combat during WWII in the Pacific Theatre.

The National Anthem Protests -- Do Facts Matter?

Larry Elder

Sep 28, 2017

Where was the angry left when Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called the national anthem protests "dumb and disrespectful"?

Let's focus on the "dumb" part.

NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who started the protests, did so over the supposed widespread instances of police brutality against blacks. Kaepernick said, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. ... There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder." 

    - According to the Centers for Disease Control, since 1968 police killings of blacks have declined nearly 75 percent

    - According to The Washington Post, almost 500 whites were killed by cops in 2015, an average of more than one a day. Two hundred fifty-nine blacks were killed by the police. Most suspects killed by police had a weapon.

Now for some perspective.

Do you know anyone who has been struck by lightning? Neither do most people. Yet each year an average of about 300 Americans are killed or injured by lightning. That's approximately 40 more than the number of blacks killed by the police in 2015. Is there an "epidemic" of Americans being struck and injured by lightning? We don't know the number of black men injured by lightning every year, but let's assume the number is 7 percent of the total people struck by lightning, mirroring the percentage of the black male population in America. That brings the average number of black men injured by lightning to about 21.

Out of the 965 people killed by the police in 2015 (as of Dec. 24), the Post reported (on Dec. 26) that "less than 4 percent" involved an unarmed black man and a white cop, the fact pattern most commonly referred to by anti-police activists like Black Lives Matter. Last year, The Washington Post put the number of unarmed black men killed by the police at 17, less than the number of blacks likely struck by lightning. Twenty-two unarmed whites were killed by the police. Any death that results from police misconduct is one death too many, but the point is that police killing of a suspect is rare, no matter the race of the suspect or the cop. And a police shooting of an unarmed black male is still more rare.

But blacks are routinely and disproportionately being stopped, pulled over and/or arrested due to police misconduct, right?

No, not according to numerous studies, many by the government. Take traffic stops. In 2013, the National Institute of Justice, the research and evaluation agency of the Department of Justice, published a study of whether the police, as a result of racial bias, stop blacks more than other drivers. The conclusion? Any racial disparity in traffic stops is due to "differences in offending" in addition to "differences in exposure to the police" and "differences in driving patterns."

According to Philippe Lemoine, writing in National Review, a white person is, on average, more likely to have interactions with the police in any year than a black person, 20.7 percent vs. 17.5 percent. It is true that a black person is more likely to have multiple contacts with the police. But according to the data, multiple contacts with the police are rare, as well. Lemoine writes that 1.2 percent of white men have more than three contacts with the police in a year versus 1.5 percent of black men.

But what about the experience of a black person with the police versus that of a white person? The DOJ's Bureau of Justice Statistics regularly studies this, too. Every year, the BJS surveys a representative sample of 70,000 people. Among the questions, the survey asks whether respondents had contact with the police in the last 12 months. If the answer is "yes," the survey asks a number of follow-up questions, including about use of force.

Let's concentrate on cases involving use of force.

Lemoine writes: "Only 0.6 percent of black men experience physical force by the police in any given year, while approximately 0.2 percent of white men do. ... Moreover, keep in mind that these tallies of police violence include violence that is legally justified." And keep in mind the much higher levels of crime by mostly black males. It is estimated that half of all homicides are committed by, and mostly against, black males.

In 1995, the federal government looked at 42,500 defendants in the nation's 75 largest counties. A government statistician, Patrick A. Langan, found "no evidence that, in the places where blacks in the United States have most of their contacts with the justice system, that system treats them more harshly than whites." So much for the so-called "institutional racism" in the criminal justice system.

Recently, in Illinois, in a kids' 8-and-under football league, the entire team, which appeared to be all black, including the coach,took a knee during the national anthem. Asked why, one third-grade player parroted Kaepernick, saying, according to the coach, "Because black people are getting killed, and nobody's going to jail."

Facts don't matter. The coach, presented with a teachable moment, fumbled it away.
