The Progressive Lust For Power The Left's Camouflage That Hides Its Real Motive.


The Progressive Lust for Power The Left's camouflage that hides its real motive.

Bernie Sanders and Hillary ClintonDateline: May 18, 2016 - Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been talking a lot about “fairness” and “equality” during their primary campaigns. Like most progressives, they pass themselves off as the champions of the ordinary people who are suffering beneath the boot of rapacious capitalists and the plutocratic “one percent.” Give us power, they say, and we will create “social justice” for all the victims of “white privilege” and capitalist greed, not to mention redistributing even more money from the selfish “rich” in order to finance such utopian goals.

Promiscuously displaying their hearts bleeding for the oppressed has long been the progressive camouflage that hides their real motive: the lust for power. Whether they want power to advance their failed ideology (Sanders), or to gratify their ambition for status and wealth (Hillary), in the end it doesn’t matter. History has repeatedly proven that the libido dominandi, the ancient lust for dominating others that lies behind the progressives’ political ambitions, in the end always leads to tyranny and misery.

Loretta Lynch’s Abuse Of The Law

At issue is how far Americans can be pushed past decency by a federal government drunk on overweening power

ANALYSIS/OPINION: When Loretta Lynch succeeded Eric Holder as U.S. attorney general a year ago, some harbored the tiniest hope that she wouldn’t be quite as radical.

After all, Mr. Holder had done his best to gin up racial resentment, dismiss a clear case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, attack voter photo ID laws, refuse to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, threaten a congressman trying to get to the truth of the Fast and Furious Mexican gun-running scandal, and ignore the Internal Revenue Service’s mob-like persecution of conservative groups.

Mr. Holder also managed to sidestep or slow down any action regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server, or the massive irregularities of the $2 billion Clinton Foundation, the golden cash cow of open graft by the Clintons and their cronies. Meanwhile, Mr. Holder staffed the Justice Department civil rights division with hard-core leftists, as amply documented in J. Christian Adams’ book “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.”

The partisan corruption under Mr. Holder was so patently obvious that his departure made some folks cautiously optimistic that Ms. Lynch would put “justice” back into the Justice Department. No such luck. She’s not only buried that hope but driven a monster truck over it.

Citadel President Denies Muslim Cadet’s Requested Accommodation To Wear A Hijab


Citadel President Denies Muslim Cadet’s Requested Accommodation To Wear A Hijab

Citadel CadetsAn American Muslim student admitted to the Class of 2020 requested a religious accommodation to wear a head cover, called a hijab, with the standard uniform of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.

While we hope the student will enroll in the college this fall, the Commandant of Cadets, after considerable review, determined the uniform exception cannot be granted.

Captain (Retired) Geno Paluso’s decision was made with my support and the support of The Citadel Board of Visitors. As the Military College of South Carolina, The Citadel has relied upon a highly effective educational model requiring all cadets to adopt a common uniform. Uniformity is the cornerstone of this four-year leader development model. The standardization of cadets in apparel, overall appearance, actions and privileges is essential to the learning goals and objectives of the college.

HILLARY CLINTON’S SON-IN-LAW: Just Screwed Over Contributors–Millions of Dollars Lost

Dateline: May 12, 2016 - This is cause for celebration! Seems like the Clinton’s empire is collapsing all around them. We should write thank you notes.

Hillary, Daughter & Son in Law   AFP/Getty ImageChelsea Clinton’s hedge fund boss husband has refused to apologize to investors – despite losing nearly $25 million in a calamitous gamble on the Greek economy.

Marc Mezvinsky, 38, persuaded clients to pour cash into the struggling European country in the hope it would bounce back and deliver massive profits. But after buying up government debt and bank stock, the dramatic upturn he and his partners predicted failed to materialize and the fund’s value plunged by an estimated 90 percent.

Inside Fidel Castro’s Luxurious Life On His Secret Island Getaway


(Editor's Comments: This is the story about the real Fidel Castro with his stashed hundreds of millions in gold and cash, yachts, lavished living while the people of Cuba live in abstract poverty.  This also exemplies the life style of all Marxist Socialist whether it is the Obamas, George Soros, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Harry Reid and many other Democrats in the Congress with their wealth and Socialist power.  This list also includes Socialist leader throughout Europe,  South America and the Soviet bloc countries.  The Millennial generation needs to be taught these facts of life before they are further duped into a false sense of security.)  

Inside Fidel Castro’s Luxurious Life On His Secret Island Getaway

By Juan Reinaldo Sanchez New York Post

For 17 years, Juan Reinaldo Sanchez served as bodyguard to Fidel Castro. But when he became disillusioned with the Cuban dictator’s hypocrisy and tried to retire in 1994, Castro had him thrown in prison. Sanchez made 10 attempts to escape the island, finally making it to the US in 2008. Now he reveals all in his new book, “The Double Life of Fidel Castro.” In this excerpt, Sanchez exposes “El Jefe’s” privileged life. Modal Trigger“The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Body Guard to El Lider Maximo” by Juan Reinaldo Sanchez (St. Martin’s Press)

Fidel CastroDateline: May 10, 2016 - To Cubans, Fidel Castro presents himself as a man of the people, claiming to make only 900 pesos a month (about $38) and owning no property other than a modest “fisherman’s hut” somewhere on the coast.

In truth, El Jefe is worth hundreds of millions and owns 20 properties, including a chalet where he goes duck hunting every year and a private marina in the Bay of Pigs.

His main home is Punto Cero, where his family was kept hidden away. No one knew until recently that he had a wife, Dalia, with whom he had five sons, all with “A” names: Alexis, Alex, Alejandro, Antonio and Angelito. Even Fidel’s own brother, Raúl, did not meet them until the children were adults.

Few, meanwhile, know that Fidel has had at least three children out of wedlock, including one with his personal interpreter and longtime mistress, Juanita.

Woodward: Washington Post Assigns 20 Reporters to Dig Into Trump's Past


(Editor's Comment:  What is presented here is the beginning of the unrelenting attack on Donald Trump to block him from being elected President of the United States.   Jeff Bezos, Publisher of the Washington Post, like his New York Times counterpart, is a hard core Democrat who uses the First Amendment as the right to prostituite the truth with Democrat propaganda in order to get the most corrupt person ever to run for the highest office of the land elected.  But to the Socialist media, it is more important to elect a Socialist, no matter their background, in order to continue the Obama agenda to destroy American exceptionalism.  The key to this campaign is the appointment of several Supreme Court Justices during the next four years.)

Dateline: May 11, 2016 -The Washington Post has assigned 20 reporters to look into every aspect of Donald Trump's past as the presumptive GOP nominee seeks to become the next president of the United States, famed Post associate editor, Bob Woodward, said Wednesday.

"There's a lot we don't know," Woodward told the National Association of Realtors convention, according to The Washington Examiner. "We have 20 people working on Trump, we're going to do a book, we're doing articles about every phase of his life." Woodward himself is looking into Trump's real estate deals, he said, saying that "The New York real estate world is more complex than the CIA." 

Jeff Bezos, the Post's publisher and a Democratic Party donor, said, "Look the job at The Washington Post has to be tell us everything about who the eventual nominee will be in both parties, 15-part, 16-part series, 20-part series, we want to look at every part of their lives and we're never going get the whole story of course but we can get the best attainable,'" Woodward said.

The Scariest Reason Trump Won


The Scariest Reason Trump Won

By Dennis Prager

Dennis PragerDateline: May 10, 2016 - There are many reasons Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. The four most often cited reasons are the frustrations of white working-class Americans, a widespread revulsion against political correctness, disenchantment with the Republican “establishment,” and the unprecedented and unrivaled amount of time the media afforded Trump.

They are all valid. But the biggest reason is this: The majority of Republicans are not conservative. Conservatives who opposed Trump kept arguing — indeed provided unassailable proof – that Donald Trump is not a conservative and has never been one. But the argument meant little or nothing to two types of Republicans: the majority of Trump voters who don’t care whether he is a conservative, and the smaller number of Trump voters who are conservative but care about illegal immigration more than all other issues, including Trump’s many and obvious failings.

So, then, what happened to the majority of Republicans? Why aren’t they conservative? The answer lies in America’s biggest – and scariest – problem: Most Americans no longer know what America stands for. For them, America has become just another country, a place located between Canada and Mexico. But America was founded to be an idea, not another country.

As Margaret Thatcher put it: “Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.” Why haven’t Americans over the past three generations known what America stands for? Probably the biggest reason is the influence of left-wing ideas.
