I was shocked, but not surprised, to see the Washington Post feature an op-ed this weekend (August 19) stating that the left has eschewed political violence. Author Yoav Fromer admits that there is some violence on the left, but for decades it hasn’t compared to the “methodical, organized and strategic violence and incitement” of the right. What about rioting in Ferguson, MO, Portland, OR, Baltimore, MD and annually in Devos, Switzerland, or the attempt to murder the Republican congressional baseball team, to name just a few recent instances? There is extreme violence on the fringes of the left and the right. Excusing the left wing component, as the media icons do on a regular basis, only exacerbates the political divisions which are plaguing Western democracies.
At least one law enforcement officer in Charlottesville, VA has come forward to clear his conscience and reveal the truth — or at least his version of it — that what went down in the city was not only condoned by city governance but was intentional, orchestrated and may have been planned as long ago as May.
The as-yet unidentified police officer has said that the Charlottesville P.D. were specifically instructed to bring the radical left and right wing groups together to instigate violence and then to told to “stand down” once violence ensued in a deliberate effort to ignite a race riot. Hear his words:
Speaking at the exclusive convention in the Swiss Alps for high ranking politicians an corporation heads, which many believe is actually a secret Illuminati meeting,
Soros vowed to destroy Trump’s entire agenda.Soros, a Hillary Clinton supporter and DNC funder, is reported to have lost almost $1 billion as the stock market rallied following news that Donald Trump was elected president.
YNW reports: Speaking to a packed audience at his annual dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Soros warned large multinational corporations to hold off from doing any business in the United States until he’s ended Trump’s presidency – or else face the consequences.
Asked what advice he would give to businesses preparing for the impact of the new presidency, he said, “I’d keep as far away from it as I can“.
The stature of statues is determined by the emotional reaction of observers to what the statues represent. Religious statues, political statues, historical statues commemorating events and achievements all symbolically represent people places or things that observers react to. The power of statues like the power of flags is determined by the reaction they arouse in the observer.
When Obama replaced the statue of Winston Churchill with the statue of Martin Luther King Jr. in his office it was a symbolic gesture. Churchill was perceived as a right-wing extremist until Germany declared war on England and it was clear that Neville Chamberlain’s policies of appeasement (leading from behind) emboldened Hitler. In May of 1940 Parliament voted no confidence in Prime Minister Chamberlain and King George VI appointed Churchill prime minister and minister of defense. Churchill was a powerful leader who rallied the English people during WWII and led his country out of a crippling defeat to victory.
THIS DISCUSSION SHEDS LIGHT ON HISTORICAL TRUTH THAT NAZISM IS ON THE LEFT
According to the acclaimed independent journalist Mike Cernovich, who broke the Susan Rice unmasking story, Mike Pence is leading the coup against President Trump.
Mike Cernovich recorded his incriminating case against Vice President Mike Pence and the establishment coup working to take down the president this afternoon. It is a ‘must watch!
“The pro-Trump super-pacs are being run by Pence. The New York Times got something right.
Everybody I knew said Bannon is out. And this time it is different.” There is a big meeting about the surge in Afghanistan.
The conventional wisdom holds that August is not usually a very busy month in politics. Most Western parliaments are on leave and most politicians take advantage of the opportunity to go on holiday.
Well that does not seem to have been the case this year. On August 12, a delegation of American senators took advantage of this August to go to Tirana and meet the No. 1 enemy of the Iranian theocracy, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, who leads the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the mullah regime’s most significant opposition group.
The U.S. delegation was composed of Senator Roy Blunt (vice chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, and member of the Appropriations, Commerce, Science and Transportation, Rules and Administration, Joint Committee on the Library, and Select Intelligence committees), Senator John Cornyn (a member of the Judiciary, Intelligence and Finance committees) and Senator Thom Tillis (member of the Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, Armed Services, Judiciary, Veterans Affairs and Special Committee on Aging committees).

I just did something fascinating. I just watched the President’s entire 14-minute impromptu news conference at Trump Tower on Monday that sparked all the latest barrage of anti-Trump screeds from the left media that will criticize him every day, no matter what he does, augmented by the “Never Trump” Republicans and neo-conservatives who will not rest until they can re-conquer the political party they lost because of three terms of two failed Bush presidencies, followed by the two failed Presidential candidacies of Sen. John McCain and of Gov. Mitt Romney.
The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the “capital of the resistance” just after Trump’s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He pardoned sixty-thousand felons in order to ensure he delivered his state to the presidential election of Hillary Clinton. We know he would like to run for president himself.
If the media and progressives were honest with themselves and the public, they would admit that the left has wanted a “Charlottesville” for a long time. It was the perfect opportunity to battle “alt-right” white-supremacist-Nazis while furnishing a powerful optic to conflate racism with conservatism. It also aptly fits the meme that all conservatives, by dint of disagreeing with the tenets of liberalism, are in essence, racists as well.
In his latest response to the riots, President Trump tried to separate the term “alt-right” from the Nazis and white supremacists present at the Unite the Right rally.
Leftists, liberals, Democrats, progressives, and the media (it’s all the same) wanted these riots — and in keeping with their longstanding efforts to control the national conversation, they want the Nazis and white supremacists labeled as “alt-right.” Some conservatives have no problem with this.
T. Belman. Very important article. We are being bullied to accept the Left’s view of things. Anyone who resists and maintains independence of mind is then smeared or blackballed or called racist. The lynch mob attacking Trump do not accept free speech or even free thought. Group think is the order of the day.
1. The lines between the different political camps are becoming more and more clear. The herd of individuals, where everyone things exactly the same and there is no one who will so much as peep out of tune with the chorus, vs. the free thinkers, who are not giving in to the media’s violent attempt to educate us about what to think and to what extent we should observe the commandment to be horrified.
U.S. President Donald Trump did not condemn the riots in Charlottesville in the exact manner that would have satisfied the political correctness crazies. Indeed, if it had been up to me, I would have written him more stringent remarks. But the thought that he did not address neo-Nazism severely is utterly ridiculous (he went back and explained his intention) and aimed at delegitimizing him and the people who voted for him. We are very familiar with that tactic.
During the campaign, and again since the Tuesday’s press conference about Charlottesville, there have been claims that President Trump is an anti-Semite. All over the MSM there are claims (usually made by Gentiles) that Trump made a moral equivalence between the alt-Right haters, and the alt-left ones. They also claim that Jews supporting Trump are inching away from the POTUS, because he’s proven his hatred of the Jewish people. This morning Congressman Nadler (D-NY) submitted a bill that between all the “Whereases,” he accused the president of siding with the neo-nazis and “surrounding himself with, and cultivated the influence of, senior advisors and spokespeople who have long histories of promoting white nationalist, alt-Right, racist and anti-Semitic principles and policies within the country.” Sorry folks but those claims are what we call in the “mamma loshen” (mother tongue/Yiddish) “dreck” (which means trash or sh*t, take your pick).
Advocating aliyah creates friction. Sometimes people think you are trying to display your moral superiority (“nyah, nyah, I moved to the Jewish state and you didn’t”). Sometimes they think you are trying to steal their children – my wife was a religious school teacher in the US, and some parents didn’t forgive her when their kids became lone soldiers here. Sometimes they hate you for reminding them of what they already believe, but haven’t acted on. Sometimes they think that you are a pest, because they are happy being Americans or French or British. And sometimes they dislike Israel itself, oppose nationalism of any kind, or feel sorry for the Palestinians.
I used to avoid doing it. But not anymore.
For those living in continental Europe or Britain, it’s simply a question of how much Jew-hatred you are prepared to tolerate in your daily life. Yes, you are a tough guy, no antisemite can force you to do anything, but do you really want to live in a place where a large proportion of your neighbors dislike or even hate you? You know it’s going to get worse over time, so unless you perversely enjoy conflict, you are probably already thinking of leaving.
For Beinart warns that the left is lurching into totalitarianism and violence. “Antifa” purport to be anti-fascist. But they define as fascist anyone they disagree with including mainstream conservatives. Hence their violent suppression of commentators and scholars such as the conservative columnist Ann Coulter, the Breitbart controversialist Milo Yiannopoulos and the political scientist Charles Murray.
What Antifa most certainly do not do is defend democracy, freedom and liberal values. As Beinart observes:
T. Belman. Glick makes a valuable point. But why did she have to go after “Trump’s equivocation”. Isi Leibler also criticized Trump. I disagree with them and support Trump 100%. American Thinker, Breitbart, Front Page Mag, Canada Free Press, Conrad Black. Marc Zell and many more also support him 100%.
The fact is that the rhetoric of white supremacists on Israel and Jews is largely indistinguishable from the language of the far Left.
n Wednesday, President Reuven Rivlin sent a letter of support to the American Jewish community in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Saturday.
On the surface, his move made sense – the largest Diaspora community is concerned about the growing profile of viciously antisemitic forces on the Right. But at a deeper level, Rivlin’s move was detrimental.
Rivlin’s letter channeled a communal posture that ignores the actual state of the Jewish community. In so doing, it made it more difficult for Jewish Americans to recognize and surmount the dangers they face.
Israel, August 17, 2017. The Legal Grounds Campaign — largely sponsored and supported by ZOA and co-directed by ZOA’s Jeff Daube — is delighted with the ecstatic reactions (e.g., “brilliant,” “genius,” “hysterical”) to our irreverent new video, All About the Facts, a musical parody cleverly referencing the popular culture smash-hit All About that Bass. (The Meghan Trainor original had received more than 2 billion views in its day.) For widest possible viewing, including in the Knesset, the video is in English with Hebrew subtitles.
Just three days past its release, All About the Facts already has generated well over 300,000 views on Facebook and YouTube alone. Viewers also are visiting the complementary new section on the Legal Grounds website, which offers a summary of the most important facts getting short shrift because, as sings a clueless BDSer alongside Palestinian Minister of Uncontrollable Rage Tawil Fadiha, “Who cares ‘bout the facts, ‘bout the facts?”
