If you click on the below listed link to watch the video, it reveals that over the last 7 years, the Genocide of Christians in the Middle East and the violent attacks on Christians in Europe have dramatically escalated.  The landscape in Europe has significantly changed over the last 8 years because millions of Muslim Refugees that have been flooding into Europe refuse to assimilate; instead, they’ve formed heavily populated Muslim enclaves that law enforcement officers avoid entering because they are aggressively opposed.  
If immigrants entering the United States refuse to assimilate and oppose the US Constitution as the supreme law of the Republic, the “Unity of Purpose” Americans worked to maintain for 242 years, that further supported “Freedom of Speech”, “Freedom of Religion”,  and the “Liberty of The…

By clicking the below listed link, you will be able to view a short video that explains why the 35 year lease with a Russian-owned container company at Port Canaveral, Florida, approved by the Obama administration, is extremely dangerous for the National Security of the United States.  The Russians and their Middle East partners are operating automatously, under the radar, “inside the wire.”   

Project Pelican is among the worst agreements the Obama administration ever approved, possibly worse than transferring of 20% of the US’ production of uranium to Russia, and possibly even worse than the flawed Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, which should have been an International Treaty requiring US Senate ratification.

Why did some leaders in the Justice Department Headquarters, some leaders in FBI Headquarters, the leaders of the Democrat members of Congress, and the left of center liberal media establishment, try to prevent American citizens from reading the contents of “The Memo”?


Regardless, "The Memo" can be read “in the light of day” by any American citizen by reading the contents by clicking on the below listed link.  The information in “The Memo” exposes the actions of political appointees of the Obama administration in the Headquarters of the Justice Department and the Headquarters of the FBI.  It is available here for you to be read without the interference, hysterical attacks, and the spins by the left of center liberal media establishment, members of Congress, or by Comey’s hysterical Tweets.

Once again we are exposed to the double standard of the misleading "radical left of center liberal media establishment"; ignoring what Obama said two short years ago, what other elected politicians said listed below, and pouncing out of control on the “truth” President Trump may have uttered this week in the “privacy” of a closed White House meeting.  The President, two Senators, and the Secretary of Homeland Security that were in the meeting said President Trump did not use the language as stated by, as some have described the "tattle-tale weasel" Durbin, who leaked to the press in violation of what has come to be expected of a closed and private White House meeting---however, for the purposes of this Op Ed, I will assume President Trump did say what Durbin said, he said. 


Elected politicians who used foul…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

The below listed article by the Thomas More Law Center outlines the conflict that has erupted, because the NFL has not been enforcing its own below listed rules that requires professional football players to honor the National Anthem.  

The BBC reported earlier this year that US race relations have become more polarized and tense since January 20, 2009.  How did we get here, after millions of white Americans voted in national elections, twice, to elect the first black president in US history?

Unfortunately, over the last 8 years, Obama’s accusation of “white privilege”, and “of systematic racism by Police Officers” and the justice system, aimed at young impressionable black Americans, who were raised in mostly fatherless homes, had its effect.  They took Obama’s accusations to heart as…

We encourage you to review the below listed position paper by the Center for Military Readiness, then to contact your Congressional Representatives encouraging them to oppose the Amendment proposed as an attachment to the FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  

The irresponsible Amendment is being proposed by Senator Susan Collins (R-Me) and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) insisting that Obama’s transgender policies remain unchanged as a part of the FY 2018 NDAA. 


Obama’s transgender policy has been a destructive social experiment forced upon the US Military requiring the recruiting and retention of personnel who suffer from a psychological condition called gender dysphoria has been the most “Destructive Policy” that has ever been forced upon the US Armed Forces in its 242 year…

An endorsed and elected Combat Veteran For Congress, Congressman Ron DeSantis, Cdr-USNR (JAGC) (R-FL-6), attached an amendment to the must-pass spending bill, that Congress will take up next week.  The amendment prohibits the Special Counsel from investigating President Trump, his family members, or the Trump campaign for anything that happened prior to June 2015, when, then Donald Trump announced his candidacy.

Congressman DeSantis’ amendment puts a 180-day cap on funding for the Special Counsel’s investigation in the Russian collusion probe.  "Congress should not fund a fishing expedition," said Congressman DeSantis. “Congress should use its spending power to clarify the scope and limit the duration of this investigation,” he said. 

After one year of investigation, not one allegation of any criminal…

Former Special Agent John Guandolo, USNA '89, FBI (USMC) in the below listed article “Understanding The Threat” reveals what the true nature of CAIR, The Muslim Brotherhood, The Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, ISIS, Al Q’ieda, Hamas, Hizballah, and Radical Islamic Terrorists' goals are.  


For the last 8 years, with the help of their appointees in the Obama administration, they jumped at the opportunity to destabilize the Republic with their misleading explanations of who they are.  Over the last 200 days, they have taken advantage of the naive and gullible members of the Trump administration to cover up the true nature of their goal.  Their true goal is to install Sharia Law as a replacement for the US Constitution.


In the last 8 years, The Muslim Brotherhood and The Muslim Brotherhood…

Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., USNA '52, USN (Ret), former Commander US Pacific Fleet, discusses the need to restore the “Military’s Moral Underpinning” in his below listed Op Ed.  It is so appropriate and timely in light of President Trump’s decision to terminate the induction of transgender people into the US Armed Forces. 


Terminating transgender people from serving in the US Armed Forces is another of the President Trump’s important steps, to change the disastrous policies Obama imposed on the US Armed Forces by force feeding his “Social Experiment On Diversity” into the US military over the last 8 years.  


President Trump stated that, after consulting "with my generals and military experts," that the US government "will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity…

Two Naval Academy graduates, believe strongly that the increasing National Debt, that doubled over the last 8 years, is the greatest threat facing the Republic, and it threatens the future of America’s children.  They are proposing the below listed initiative; they are:


John A. Knuble, USNA ’62, the former Assistant Secretary & Chief Financial Officer, Department of Housing and Urban Development

William “Bill” Owens, USNA ’62,  Admiral, USN (Ret), the former Vice Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff


They have proposed an initiative to rein in the out of control spending by an irresponsible Congress, since the revenue stream is far exceeded by the National Debt.  This is not a Republican or Democrat initiative, it is a Patriotic American initiative to move toward a balanced budget, in order to…

President Donald J. Trump saw the hat of one of the US Marine Guards blow off his head, due to heavy winds; he chased the hat, bent down, picked the hat off the ground, then put it back on the Marine Guard’s head.  Every American should watch this video of a caring US President’s respect and courtesy toward a US Marine. Amazing!

There is a stark difference in how President Trump treats US Marine Guards, who he always returns hand salutes to, and how Obama…

In the below listed opinion piece by nationally renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Abelow, M. D., about President Donald J. Trump, Dr. Abelow expands in his rebuttal of the non-stop, out of control attacks on the President, by the Progressives, Leftists, the new Marxists Democrats, and Obama’s Organization For Action (OFA).  They continue to mischaracterize every one of the President Trump’s accomplishments, as they move forward in their plan to effect the first Coup D’estat of the President of The United States in 241 years.  

It would be interesting to be able to see psychiatric evaluations of political opportunists who continue to make unfair, frothing at the mouth, out of control vitriol attacks on President Trump; progressives like Maxine Waters, Al Franken, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren (aka Pocahontas), Michael…

Each year on Independence Day, the Fourth of July, Americans celebrate, express their support for the freedoms they enjoy, and recognize the unlimited opportunities afforded them to improve their station in life, because of The Free Enterprise System.  The Fourth of July is also an opportunity for each “Patriotic American Citizen” to celebrate a second symbolic birthday.  


Countless generations of Americans fought for, and under, the American Flag.  The American Flag symbolizes the unity of Americans.  The “Flag” is flown on national holidays above US Federal buildings, on US Military installations, on US Navy ships, over US Embassies & US Missions, by deployed US military units overseas and by millions of Americans over their residences.  The “American Flag” symbolizes the principles upon which the Founding…

The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, International Terrorist Organizations, have managed to get Senate Resolution 118 and House Resolution 257 introduced into the House and Senate.  If those resolutions are passed into law, this law will “Criminalize Freedom of Speech.”  


The Founding Fathers gave Americans “Freedom of Speech" in the US Constitution; CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are trying to “Criminalize Freedom of Speech.”   


Those resolutions are part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s sinister plan to replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law, through a back door method of passing various laws that chip away at the precepts of the US Constitution.  Those International Terrorists know Patriotic Americans would never knowingly replace the US Constitution with Sharia Law.
