ISIS in Iraq is defeated

In an address yesterday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally announced that the more than three-year fight against the barbaric terror group is over after the country’s security forces drove the extremists from all of the territory they once held.

ISIS in Iraq is defeated.

Say what you will about this president, but his leadership on the ISIS front has been magnificent. The world’s most dastardly terrorist group has been largely destroyed under Trump’s leadership — and that’s no small feat.

The president let our military members — the best in the world — do what they do best. That is to destroy the enemy. And they did just that.

Trump empowered the generals on the front line to do what had to be done.

And they did.

BTW...has anyone ever answered this question??



MARK LEVIN: DONALD TRUMP IS THE MOST CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT SINCE RONALD REAGAN

If you’re a conservative, you must admit that Donald Trump has been more conservative than you anticipated, which is why most conservatives – I’m not talking about self-aggrandizing, pseudo-conservatives who worked for Bush or self-aggrandizing, pseudo-conservatives who were a part of the Never Trump movement. I’m not talking about them. They’ve got their own agendas and their own psychological issues. When you look at this honestly and objectively – and remember, I supported Cruz in the Republican primaries, so I know of what I speak – you have to conclude that Donald Trump is the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan.

No, he’s not as conservative, but that’s okay. He’s the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan. There’s no question in my mind about that.

A pastor speculates about Obama and Islam

Monday, December 7, 2015:  The "president" raises more questions than answers

The US "president" spent 13 minutes between a reception for movie stars and the Kennedy Center Honors performance to tell Americans that Muslims aren't the problem with terrorist attacks, that we are not at war with Islam, and that his Administration would continue doing the same things it is already doing to fight terrorism, but is expecting better results. He spent nearly 25% of his speech telling America that Muslims were not the problem, but rather the solution to defeat Islam. He said, "If we're to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate." But how does a Muslim fight against his own beliefs?

The "president" says Muslims are radicalized by "embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West." The Koran, however, Islam's holy book, instructs Muslims to kill, maim, and subdue infidels in some 109 verses such as Surah 2.191 "And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter," and Surah 8.012, "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them." Why would this "president," born and raised a Muslim, deny that Islam instructs every Muslim to do such?

According to the Heritage Foundation, lethal terrorist attacks against Americans have increased fourfold during this "president's" term compared with the previous Administration. Except for gun control, the "president" proposed nothing new in his address. He said he would continue to partner with Muslims to defeat Muslims, continue to provide training and equipment to "tens of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian forces," and crack down on visa requirements in the US. But arming and training these Muslims is what strengthened the Islamic State with terrorists using our weapons. And why has this "president" reduced visa requirements, which allowed the very terrorist in the San Bernardino attack to come to the US?

Breitbart reports that since the "president" took office, "the number of visas issued per year to non-friendly, non-waiver residents has jumped by over 50 percent to 9,932,480 last year. The fastest-growing sector of the program is the "Fiancé Visa" program, known as "K-1," which jumped from 30,290 in 2013 to 41,488 in 2014. San Bernardino terrorist Tashfeen Malik was one of them." The "president's" partnering with Muslims also is extremely dangerous. For example, the Free Beacon reports that Rep. Stephen Lynch (D, Ma) announced that a recent congressional investigation found that at least 72 people working at DHS also "were on the terrorist watch list." Why are there potential terrorists working at DHS?

These are questions that must be asked. From listening to the "president's" address, one could conclude that this "president" is in collusion with Islamic forces that wish to conquer the US and he is just trying to keep Americans calm long enough for full blown war to occur on our soil. 2 Timothy 3:1 says that "in the last days perilous times will come" and in verse 13, "...evil men and seducers shall wax wore and worse, deceiving and being deceived." These are indeed perilous times.

NOTE: When writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

Dispelling the ‘Few Extremists’ Myth – the Muslim World Is Overcome with Hate

Every U.S. president gets compared to Hitler. This is the first time a former one has done it.

This is rich given Obama's endless complaints--and ACTUAL VIOLATIONS--of our precious U.S. Constitution!

READ MORE

Seven years before Barack Obama’s “spread the wealth” comment to Joe the Plumber became a GOP campaign theme, the Democratic presidential candidate said in a radio interview the U.S. has suffered from a fundamentally flawed Constitution that does not mandate or allow for redistribution of wealth.

In a newly unearthed tape, Obama is heard telling Chicago’s public station WBEZ-FM in 2001 that “redistributive change” is needed, pointing to what he regarded as a failure of the U.S. Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren in its rulings on civil rights issues in the 1960s.

The Warren court, he said, failed to “break free from the essential constraints” in the U.S. Constitution and launch a major redistribution of wealth. But Obama, then an Illinois state lawmaker, said the legislative branch of government, rather than the courts, probably was the ideal avenue for accomplishing that goal.

This is how corrupt bureaucracies and criminal operations attack targets like President Trump

From Clark Baker, former LAPD officer (and State Department personnel):
I recently posted this rough analogy for those who don't understand how the FBI targeted President Trump, Gen. Flynn, and Paul Manafort - and how none of us are safe:
Let's say that my associates and I operate an out-of-control and unaccountable government bureaucracy. You're doing nothing illegal, I must create a pretext (like the Russian Dossier") to begin our assault.

While you're driving responsibly, I pull you over for running a stop sign (called a "pretext stop"), even though you've committed no violation. During the interview, you deny running through a stop sign and claim that you're coming from the barber when you're actually coming from Sally's house. Although your driving and visit with Sally were entirely legal, you misrepresented the fact that you visited with Sally, not the barber. Now I can arrest you for lying. (NOTE - It's not illegal to lie to police - it IS a felony to lie to FBI.)

I then use unrestrained subpoena power to look at your bank accounts, harass and threaten your friends and associates. If any of your friends deliberately or accidentally misrepresent an innocuous fact, they too can be charged. You hire an attorney to defend you, while a phalanx of FBI/DOJ lawyers file a barrage of documents and demands that require thousands of hours of legal fees that you can't afford. Your wife and family now face the loss of your home and assets, all based upon a false claim that you ran a stop sign and lied about Sally.
This is how corrupt bureaucracies and criminal operations attack targets like President Trump. Because there are no checks or balances (and because they ignore/resist Congressional oversight), these unaccountable bureaucrats don't need to start with the primary target. If the actual target (i.e. Trump) is too big, they'll target his friends, family, and associates for similar harassment (i.e. Manafort, Flynn, their wives, kids). If they can't stop you, they'll stop your kids and your friends and tell them that you're the actual target. If they report one bad story (true or false) they can extricate themselves from the trap to serve as witnesses against you.

This is how corrupt cops, industries, bureaucracies, and governments operate. Corrupt bureaucracies like the DOJ and FBI are now attacking threats to protect themselves because they don't want Trump and other honest elected representatives to uncover the real dirt that exists in these agencies. Whether you support President Trump or not, the fact that the FBI and DOJ can do this to a sitting President means that NONE OF US ARE SAFE.

Like Hillary said: "If that fucking bastard wins, we'll all hang!"

Legal Issues of Roe v. Wade

First of all, Roe v. Wade did not legalize abortion. 


Contrary to popular perception, the majority opinion in Roe did not affirm a constitutional right to privacy, much less a right to have an abortion.


Roe and all subsequent abortion cases have established a culture where the Supreme Court, rather than the legislature, dictates the content of abortion legislation, often in painstaking detail. Though Roe itself had little regard for the text of the Constitution and effectively ignored a century of prior jurisprudence, Roe’s defenders have solemnly appealed to the principle of stare decisis to preserve Roe as an established precedent. Revolutionaries despise traditional authority until they gain power, at which point authority again becomes sacred. Since the legal arguments of Roe are virtually nonexistent, it can only be defended by the argument from authority, stare decisis, a principle which Roe itself thoroughly repudiated.


"The most controversial of the civil rights cases is undoubtedly Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), which has been applied in a way that effectively establishes an unwritten constitutional right to have an abortion, though the opinion of Roe itself made no such assertion directly. Roe represents a twofold failure of judicial social engineering, since it (1) applied a uniform legal solution over all the states on a highly contentious issue that opens deep moral, religious, and philosophical fissures, and (2) was poorly reasoned and not grounded in law, giving it little intellectual legitimacy. We are only going to consider the second aspect of Roe, its failing as a legal argument.Roe’s intellectual inadequacies are well known and criticized among legal scholars, even those who personally favor a right to abortion.[1] These criticisms have not reached a larger audience, however, due to the superficial coverage of legal matters by the mass media. Accordingly, we need to clear some common misconceptions before examining the opinion of Roe itself, which is often cited but seldom read."

READ MORE


As subsequent history has proven, the Court did not settle the abortion issue, but nationalized it, creating militant opposition groups with national reach. The Court, by legislating from the bench one time too many, itself became an object of competing political ideologies. Instead of debating abortion in state legislatures, the battle is waged through judicial appointments, and as Roe cannot stand on the basis of its weak arguments alone, the abortion issue will be held hostage by the courts until the pre-Warren understanding of the role of the judiciary holds sway once again.

How Obama Brought Back Muslim Enslavement of Black People

America’s first black president didn’t bring “Hope” to America, but he did bring slave auctions to Africa. After Obama “liberated” Libya for the Islamist rebels, Arab Muslims sell black slaves for a few hundred dollars at slave auctions.
More:
After Obama invaded Libya to aid the Muslim Brotherhood, black slaves are being sold there once more.

Videos show black people being put up for sale for as little as $400 by Arab Libyan Muslim slave traders. The black men being sold as slaves are described as “big strong boys for farm work.”

After years of lecturing Americans about the “original sin” of slavery, Obama brought it back.

The black men being sold as slaves are Nigerians. Islam forbids Muslims to enslave Muslims. Nigeria has a large non-Muslim population. It is likely another case of Arab Muslims selling Christians into slavery.

Unlike President Bush, Obama paid little attention to Africa. When he did pay attention to Africa, it was largely to reward Muslim violence against African Christians in Nigeria, Kenya or Côte d'Ivoire.

And, most prominently, Libya.

Naked...exposed...uncovered...

From Clark Baker (former LAPD officer):
ALL governments are corrupt. Our primary philosophical difference is that conservatives seek to cure corruption with smaller government, while leftists (and RINOs -- "Republicans In Name Only") seek to "cure" the corruption with a bigger corrupt government.


The fact that the Demo
crat Party and Communists have openly declared their objective to collapse our system of government and replace it with Communist rule is no secret. During the 1950s, FBI Agent Cleon Skousen warned the United States Congress of the 45 specific goals of the Communist Party.
From
The Naked Communist, 1963:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

"Thanksgiving is ours, where we give our deepest thanks to Providence for the extraordinary gift of America to mankind."



THANKFUL FOR AMERICA

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter
american-eagleAll my life, I have always thought it was the coolest thing on planet Earth to be an American.
I have been to something close to 300 countries and distinct political jurisdictions in the world, and whenever someone asks me, “Where are you from?” it is a special thrill to be able to answer, “America – I’m an American.”
Thanksgiving is the unique American holiday. We share Christmas and Easter with every other Christian nation. Most every country celebrates its Independence Day, and the birthdays of their founding heroes.
Thanksgiving is ours, where we give our deepest thanks to Providence for the extraordinary gift of America to mankind.
Other countries have their special times to celebrate their uniqueness, when their citizens take pride in their country’s achievements, and all to the good.
Thanksgiving is America’s Day, the time when all Americans – all – get to celebrate the achievements of the most successful society in history.
It is a tragedy that so many of our fellow citizens are mired in a quicksand of rage and bitterness towards their country and their President.  For them, this day is bittersweet, trying to enjoy a bountiful dinner with friends and family yet unable to feel a boundless joy in simply being an American.
The last thing you and I should feel towards them today is schadenfreude.  Maybe tomorrow, but not today.  We should wish instead for them to embrace these words from one of their own:
“In an American election, there are no losers, because whether or not our candidates are successful, the next morning we all wake up as Americans. And that is the greatest privilege and the most remarkable good fortune that can come to us on earth.”
You may be startled to know who said that:  John Kerry in his concession speech to George Bush on November 4, 2004.  That graciousness is in such stark moral contrast to the deranged viciousness over the past year.  What could have caused such derangement?
Let’s ask that very specifically:  What is it about the presidency of Donald Trump that triggers an outpouring of hatred for America among the Left unlike we have ever seen before?
Liberals, Democrats, and members of America’s Fascist Left may very well be enjoying this day – enjoying good food, good wine, good friends and family.  Let’s hope they are.  We should not begrudge them this moment of good cheer.
But what has always been difficult for them is to enjoy being American, being thankful for America, to celebrate the abundance of America, that we celebrate on Thanksgiving.
Any celebration of theirs is always a yes…but thankfulness.  “Yes, we have much to be thankful for on this day, but we must never forget what we did to the Indians and the slaves, that there is still too much poverty and racism in America, blah, blah, blah…”
The purpose of Thanksgiving is to be thankful for being American. This is the day to celebrate the goodness of our country – the moral goodness, the moral decency of American institutions, American history, and the character of the American people.  Without any buts.
It’s easy for conservatives to do this – it comes natural to us.  It’s the opposite for liberals, who relish and revel in incessant guilt-mongering – and can’t celebrate a Thanksgiving with no buts.
Nonetheless, we have never witnessed such a tsunami of hate for America, its history, its principles, its very existence by the Left as now.  What has Donald Trump done to cause this?
The simple answer:  Trump has triggered and set on fire the deepest fear in the very heart of every liberal:  the fear of envy.
See, for example, Rejecting the Evil Eye (November 2004)
“Fear of the envy of others is one of mankind’s most deeply primal and pervasive terrors. Envy-avoidance is one of the most basic and primary motivators of human behavior.  
Liberalism is nothing more than a pose by those afraid of envy. Liberalism is not a political ideology or set of beliefs. It is an envy-deflection device, a psychological strategy to avoid being envied. It is the politicalization of envy-appeasement.”
Winston Churchill defined Marxism, be it Socialism or Fascism, as “the gospel of envy.”  It is the gospel that Obama, Hillary, the Lying Swine Fake News media, and all Democrats preach.  It takes extreme moral courage to reject it.  For as Churchill observed:
“Some see private enterprise as a predatory target to be shot, others as a cow to be milked, but few are those who see it as a sturdy horse pulling the wagon.”
Yet that moral courage is exactly what a majority of American voters demonstrated by electing Donald Trump.  Only American voters could be so envy-free to elect so opulent a capitalist businessman who proudly flaunts his earned wealth rather than apologizing for it.
With Donald Trump, Americans chose the embodiment of capitalist abundance over being impoverished wards of The State.  Americans chose to laugh at the Left’s deepest fear, igniting that fear as never before, a fear so deep and primal it has made them lose their minds.
On this day we should pray for them to regain their minds and their basic decency.  They are our fellow Americans, to whom we should reach out to help them overcome the terrifying fear in their souls.
For if they do, they will be liberated to feel as we do: grateful for our country, for the very existence of America, for the priceless privilege of being an American.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Uranium One noose is tightening
By Thomas Lifson
Now that the FBI's informant on the Uranium One deal has been outed and the nondisclosure agreement formerly muzzling him abrogated, it is possible to see the outlines of the devastating case to be made against not just Hillary Clinton, but the entire Obama administration. Two intrepid reporters, John Solomon of The Hill and Sara Carter of Circa News and Sinclair Broadcasting, are gaining access to some of the reported 50,000 documents in the possession of William Campbell, the whistleblower who went to the FBI with the scary details of what appeared to him to be an illegal attempt by Russian entities to take over the world uranium market, including even the uranium resources in our ground.

Airliners And F-15s Involved In Bizarre Encounter With Mystery Aircraft Over Oregon - UPDATE

The FAA, the USAF, and air traffic control recordings all confirm the bizarre event did indeed occur last October. BY TYLER ROGOWAYNOVEMBER 15, 2017
Amongst all the questions that remain, one thing is certain, an unidentified white aircraft was indeed flying over Oregon on that day in October, and the USAF and the FAA are both willing to admit that the event occurred. In the Air Force's case, the fact that they are even willing to tell us that they couldn't catch or even find the unidentified aircraft with their sensor-packed and fast F-15s is interesting to say the least. On the other hand they may not be sharing the entire story with us.

Whatever the case, we'll keep you updated on this white flying mystery machine of sorts and the circumstances surrounding its presence over Oregon when, or should I say if, new information becomes available.

UPDATE: When I first posted the story of the “UFO” sighting last month, I got this response from a friend who used to work for Lockheed many years ago:
The Skunk Works is at it again! When the first models of what became the SR-71 started flying, there were all kinds of "UFO" sightings. It flew higher and faster than anyone could imagine. We probably will never know how fast it could go.”
I had no idea what this meant and asked him…wow, what a great, insider story of secret goings on at a major U.S. aerospace company (founded in 1912 and later merged with Martin Marietta in 1995 to become Lockheed Martin)!! So here’s the rest of the story:
The Skunk Works is a super secret design and manufacturing part of Lockheed. When I worked for Lockheed, Kelly Johnson ran the organization and they produced many surprises, the SR-71 being the biggest. Just imagine you are in charge of building a secret airplane out of titanium and there are few suppliers and limited supply. If Lockheed bought enough material to build one, everybody would know they were building a titanium airplane. So how did they do it? They set up phony businesses all over the country which each bought a reasonable amount of titanium. He was very clever. They also produced the U-2 and a small corporate jet (Jet Star I think). They did that in secret in order to be the first to produce it.

I was cleared to work on his stuff but I never had a "need-to-know" about any details. When I was told I was cleared, I was told not to tell another company that I had such a clearance, because when that company called to verify, Lockheed would deny the existence of that clearance.

It is entirely possible that they are now producing aircraft that no one knows about and do amazing things.

Also, the origin of the name "Skunk Works" may be interesting. It comes from the comic strip Li'l Abner. There was a plant nearby that spewed all kinds of odors and smoke and no one knew what it produced. It was called the Skunk Works. Search for "Skunk Works" for a lot of interesting information about Lockheed's Skunk Works.

Healthcare...from the trenches

I didn't include this man's personal experience in the following summary...but I really hope you will read the whole story.
The non-profit has found that their average recipient only needs one to two years of assistance, ranging from $5-15,000 in total. That is all it takes to keep these families from financial ruin.

“Some of the families would then be able to support their own costs after the disease was managed. Others were able to move and find employment that provided them with better health insurance,” Kuhn said.

Kuhn says PSI never had an insurance company reject their cost-sharing payments until 2014, when the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services under former President Obama issued a ruling allowing insurance companies to prohibit their insureds from accepting charitable support (from non-profits, including churches).

Kuhn then took the fight to Washington, D.C., and was able to convince Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota to put forth legislation in 2015 with the backing of 146 cosponsors. He then was able to get Cramer to send a letter in 2017 signed by 183 members of Congress — Republicans and Democrats — to Health and Human Services asking the agency to overturn the ruling. The effort was unsuccessful, as was another in 2017, but Kuhn is trying once again to rally lawmakers behind his cause.

Cramer is trying once again to introduce legislation asking for a repeal of the rule. Cramer put forth a measure in October 2017, a bill that currently has roughly 47 cosponsors.

This is what a rigged system looks like

Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Magazine:
In May, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed a lawsuit by the families of the victims of Benghazi against Hillary Clinton. Judge Jackson decided that the families couldn’t sue Hillary either for wrongful death or for defamation. That isn’t too surprising as Jackson is a former Clinton donor who had been appointed by Obama. And a Clinton donor should never have been ruling on a Clinton case.

But now Judge Jackson will be presiding over the Paul Manafort case.

Presiding over Manafort’s indictment is Judge Deborah A. Robinson. Judge Robinson’s most prominent previous case was the Berger trial. Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton’s former National Security Adviser, stole classified documents about the terror failures of the Clinton administration, hid documents under a construction trailer, lied about taking them and destroyed some of them.

People have gone to jail for doing a whole lot less with classified documents. But not Clinton associates.

The One Paragraph You Need To Read From The JFK Assassination Files That May Change Everything

"President Kennedy was killed in Dealey Plaza by a crossfire, meted out by shooters firing from multiple directions, from both the front and behind — therefore, he was felled by a conspiracy, by definition."

Douglas P. Horne graduated Cum Laude from Ohio State University in 1974, with a B.A. in History. He served for ten years as a Surface Warfare Officer in the U.S. Navy, and then worked for the Navy for ten more years as a Federal civilian. In 1995 he joined the staff of the President John F. Kennedy “Assassination Records Review Board,” and rose to the position of Chief Analyst for Military Records. In that capacity, he focused on the medical evidence surrounding the JFK autopsy; the Zapruder film; and ensured the release of military records on Cuba and Vietnam. In 2009 he published the extensive five-volume work, Inside the Assassination Records Review Board, which documents the U.S. government’s coverup of the medical evidence surrounding JFK’s assassination, and the alteration of the Zapruder film of President Kennedy’s assassination.

Excerpts from Victor Davis Hanson's new book "The Second World Wars"

Editor’s Note: The Following is a series of excerpts adapted from Victor Davis Hanson’s new book The Second World Wars. It appears here with permission.


A Classical War of Modern Violence
by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON October 16, 2017 4:00 AM @VDHANSON

World War II traced the contours of previous conflicts to an endpoint of unprecedented death and destruction.



The Axis Was Outmatched from the Start
by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON October 17, 2017 4:00 AM @VDHANSON

Hitler and his Axis cohorts couldn’t match their enemies’ resources to begin with. That they learned all the wrong lessons from military history while the Allies learned all the right ones doomed them.



The Deadly Cost of Mutual Misunderstanding
by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON October 18, 2017 4:00 AM @VDHANSON

Hitler went to war without an accurate conception of the Allies’ strength. The Allies did the same without an accurate conception of Hitler’s ambition. Unprecedented bloodshed ensued.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF PROGRESSIVE DOMINATION?

Other signs suggest we shouldn’t start celebrating. The lefts’ demolition of the American social and political order has reached deep into our schools, popular culture, and political policies. There are 66 million Millennials, the worst-educated cohort in American history, steeped in the progressive world-view since kindergarten. The shibboleths, clichés, mythemes, and transparent lies of that world view are second nature to them, signs of intellectual sophistication and class superiority. Their favorite oracles, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and YouTube, are morphing into Big Brother censors and manipulators of information on behalf of progressives. And these Millennials are going to be around for a long time, unlike the aging Boomers, among whom are most of the last remnants of the old America.

More ominous, the progressive redistributionist entitlement state and the habits of dependence it fosters are unlikely to be reformed, even as the increasing debt to finance this “kinder, gentler” Leviathan continues to drive us toward bankruptcy. The vast wealth and physical comfort we Americans enjoy fool us into thinking that all these cultural and political pathologies are affordable, nothing to worry about as long as the shelves of Costco are full, the cat videos keep coming on Facebook and YouTube, the new CGI superhero cartoons are showing at the Cineplex, and new Silicon Valley toys continue to be available. We can keep on enjoying our bread and circuses and not think about the Goths and Vandals gathering on the horizon.

So, beginning of the end of the leftist cultural regime, or a transient, doomed resistance? One thing for sure, we have a couple of national elections coming in 2018 and 2020 that will answer that question.

Colorado facing big problems after legalizing recreational marijuana in 2013

Despite lofty promises from the marijuana industry, legalizing recreational marijuana has been detrimental to Colorado.
     
A recent conference in the Phoenix area, “Legalized Marijuana: The Unintended Consequences,” organized by MATFORCE and Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, highlighted the unintended consequences of legalizing marijuana. One of the sessions at the conference focused specifically on the unintended consequences of legalizing marijuana in Colorado.

For this week’s 5 Minutes for Families, I wanted to outline some of the problems Colorado is facing after legalizing recreational marijuana in 2013.
  
Increase in Marijuana-Related Traffic Deaths:
 from 55 deaths in 2013 to 123 deaths in 2016. 
 in the four-year average (2013-2016) since legalizing recreational marijuana compared to three-year average (2009-2012) prior to legalization.
·  In 2009, 9% of all traffic fatalities in Colorado involved operators testing positive for marijuana. By 2016, the number doubled to 20%.
·  Marijuana, as a percent of all Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol/Driving Under the Influence of Drugs cases is increasing since legalization: 12.2% (2014), 13.4% (2015), and 17.2% (2016)
.
Increase in Youth Marijuana Use:
·  Since Colorado legalized marijuana the youth past month marijuana use increased by 20%
 in the two-year average (2013-2014) compared to the two-year average prior to legalization (2011-2012).
·  The latest 2014-2015 results show that Colorado youth ranked #1 in the nation for past month marijuana use
.
·  Colorado youth past month marijuana use for 2014-2015 was 55% higher
 than the national average, compared to 39% higher in 2011-2012.
since legalization: 1,766 (2012), 1,980 (2013), and 2,363 (2014). 

Increase in Marijuana-Related Health Emergencies:
: 8,197 (2011), 9,982 (2012), 14,148 (2013), and 18,255 (2014).
: 6,305 (2011), 6,715 (2012), 8,272 (2013), and 11,439 (2014). 
 from 43 (2009-2012) to 134 (2013-2016) after legalization. 
o    The number of marijuana-related poison control calls involving children under 9 years of age
increased 206% post-legalization: 16 (2012), 26 (2013), 44 (2014), and 49 (2015).
·  Children’s Hospital Colorado reported 1 marijuana ingestion among children
under 9 years old in 2009 compared to 16 in 2015.
 has increased post legalization: 13.5% (2006-2008), 13.8% (2009-2011), and 16% (2012-2014). 

Increase in Marijuana Culture:
·  As of June 2017, Colorado has 491 retail marijuana stores
 compared to 392 Starbucks and 208 McDonald’s.
·  The percentage of adults 26 years of age and older using marijuana is steadily increasing each year since legalization: 7.63% (2011-2012), 10.13% (2012-2013), 12.45% (2013-2014), and 14.65% (2014-2015).  
·  In 2012, out-of-state residents accounted for 78 of every 100,000 emergency room visits due to marijuana-related symptoms. By 2014, the number increased to 163 of every 100,000 visits, a 109% increase.   
 has increase 914% post legalization, from 97 pounds (2009-2012) to 984 pounds (2013-2016).
 has increased from 184 in 2013 to 752 in 2015.
·  Legalization of marijuana may have contributed to increase of homelessness in Denver, from 28,000 accommodations per month in 2012 to 42,000 accommodations per month in November 2015. 

The above numbers make clear that legalizing recreational marijuana is bad public policy. It might please marijuana users and fatten the wallet of the marijuana industry, but it puts families and children at risk. To be sure, Colorado has benefitted from tax revenues from the medical and recreational marijuana industry, but is .8% of the state’s budget worth all the harm it has caused its citizens.
