Democrats just accused William Barr of a horrifying crime you won’t believe

Democrats will stop at nothing to destroy William Barr.

The fact he performs his duties fairly terrifies a party fueled by corruption.

That’s why Democrats just accused William Barr of a horrifying crime you won’t believe.

Following the questionable suicide of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Democrats have been put in a difficult spot.

Considering Epstein was a long-time friend of high-level Democrats like Bill Clinton and that he has given millions of dollars to other Democrats, they are terrified.

So to move the focus away from facts like Bill Clinton flying repeatedly on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” — the very plane allegedly used to traffic young children for sex — they are trying to tie him to Trump.

And to do that, MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler is claiming Attorney General William Barr “facilitated Mr. Epstein’s suicide.”

Fox News reports:

An MSNBC legal analyst accused Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department of facilitating accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide.
“Bill Barr directs the Bureau of Prisons and they allowed — in some ways, they facilitated Mr. Epstein’s suicide,” MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler said during a Tuesday appearance on the network.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who has a history of making his own controversial statements, responded by pressing for more information and claiming that it wasn’t fair to use that description.

“Well that’s not fair, what do you mean ‘facilitate’?”

Butler added to the mounting scrutiny surrounding the Justice Department’s handling of Epstein after he was placed on suicide watch after a previous failed suicide attempt in late July.

Butler suspected that Trump tried to point the finger at former President Bill Clinton in an attempt to deflect from his own possibly troublesome connections to the convicted sex offender.

When a claim is so inane that Chris Matthews hits back, it’s clear the line was crossed.

President Donald Trump’s connection to Epstein is a small footnote in the pedophile’s history, with their few interactions only occurring prior to Epstein’s first sex crime conviction.

And the one remotely newsworthy part of their relationship is Trump barring Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago club.

So, insinuating that Barr had something to do with Epstein’s suicide makes it sound as though he was covering something up for Trump.

Ted Cruz: U.S. Colleges Are Raising a “Generation of Pansies”

Senator Ted Cruz addressed far-left indoctrination occurring at colleges and universities during a recent Young America’s Foundation National Conservative Student Conference. Speaking to the crowd of students, the 2016 presidential candidate said American “colleges and universities are trying really hard to raise a generation of pansies.”

Cruz argued that places of higher learning shield students from “ideas that are scary” with preposterous “safe spaces.” The Senator maintained that young adults should instead be taught to tackle and engage with these types of ideas. Cruz remarked, “if you are a university administrator, the ideas that are represented in this room are terrifying.” Driving home his point, Cruz said, “there are no safe spaces in this room.”

While speaking to the students, the 2016 presidential candidate challenged them to “defend liberty” because it both “works” and is “powerful.” He claimed Democrats have gone “stark-raving nuts” in their defense of socialism, which Cruz touted as having proven to be a “manifest disaster.” TheBlaze reported that the Senator “challenged Hollywood leftists to put their money where their mouths are and hop inside inflatable rafts at the southern tip of Florida and head toward the ‘socialist utopia that is communist Cuba’ if they hate capitalism so much.”

Cruz admonished the left for being “so darned angry” and devoid of a sense of humor. He advised conservative students to avoid liberals’ fallacies and to attempt to “have fun” in spite of the nation’s current political struggles. When Cruz concluded his speech, he answered questions from the audience. One student relayed the outrageous political correctness that has taken over debate competitions on college and university campuses. The student shared that debate participants are forced to write their gender pronouns on a board. This individual also revealed that those who debate must “trigger warn” before unleashing any “edgy” content. Debaters can also get “equity called” for offensive statements. Allegedly, debate “gender minority” tournaments are also a thing. These matches exclude males.

In response, Cruz sarcastically stated, “We’re all gonna die.”

“One of the saddest things we’re seeing is our colleges and universities are trying really hard to raise a generation of pansies,” Cruz said. “What is this sense that you have a right not to be offended? You have a right not to hear ideas that are scary? Look, the entire purpose of university is to hear ideas that are scary.”

The audience in the room reportedly responded with loud applause and cheering. The Senator divulged that when he attended college and law school, he was “surrounded by leftists” and enrolled in courses taught by “Marxists.”

“I would deliberately sign up to take classes from Marxists. Now, my family has been tortured by communists in Cuba. It’s personal to me, but you know what? Truth is not afraid of lies. The light is not afraid of darkness. It is good for you to confront ideas that scare you,” the Texas senator added.

Where controversial ideas are concerned, Cruz didn’t promulgate running from them, creating safe spaces for them, or college officials prohibiting them. Rather, the Senator said to “ridicule the living crap out of” them. The 2016 presidential candidate urged students to utilize this same method against “racist, bigoted morons” like Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

Surprisingly, even some on the left feel the ridiculousness occurring on college and university campuses around the country is going too far. According to TheBlaze, liberal activist and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader has labeled trigger warnings “absurd.” Reportedly, Nader has noted that the male students on college and university campuses today are “far too sensitive because they’ve never been in a draft. They’ve never had a sergeant say, ‘Hit the ground and do 50 push-ups, and I don’t care if there’s mud there.’”

Every Democrat presidential nominee since 1984 went to law school
(although Gore did not graduate).
Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd
went to law school.
Barack Obama was a lawyer. Michelle Obama was a lawyer.
Hillary Clinton was a lawyer. Bill Clinton was a lawyer.
John Edwards is a lawyer. Elizabeth Edwards was a lawyer.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer is a lawyer.
Ex-Senator Harry Reid is a lawyer.

The Republican Party is different.
President Trump is a businessman.
President Bush 1 and 2 were businessmen.
Vice President Cheney is a businessman.
President Eisenhower was a 5 star General Officer.
The leaders of the Republican Revolution:
Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
Tom Delay was an exterminator.
Dick Armey was an economist.
Ex-House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.
Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer?
Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the
Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against actor
Ronald Reagan in 1976.

The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who
are often the targets of lawyers.

This is very interesting. I never thought about it this way.
The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers.
Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Trump, Bush and
Cheney, or who heal the sick like Frist, or who immerse themselves in
history like Gingrich.
The Lawyers Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and
services that people want, as the enemies of America ..
And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes
of the Lawyers Party, grow.
Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail?....Pharmaceutical companies,
oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains,
large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of
value in our nation.
This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes
of lawyers.
Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in
this case the American people. Lawyers seek to have new laws passed,
they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn
precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side.
Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an
awful way to govern a great nation.

When politicians, as lawyers, begin to view some Americans as clients
and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal
system in our life becomes all-consuming.
Some Americans become adverse parties of our very government. We are
not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit.
We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom
from laws, from courts, and from lawyers.
Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions;
we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all
parts of our once private lives.
America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and
reasonable, not vast and unchecked.
When the most important decision for our next president is whom he
will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in
America is too big.
When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to
learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of
litigation in America has become crushing.
Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to
our nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American
society and business.
Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of
lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work.
Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more
power will only make our problems worse.
The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the
world's lawyers!
Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress
several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in
ridiculous lawsuits such as spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing
the establishment that sold it to you and also to limit punitive
damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits.
This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on
by the Democrat Party.
When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American
Trial Lawyers Association go to the Democrat Party, then you realize who
is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high.

You can be an American or you can be a Democrat,
but not both.

Chicago Teachers Union 'delegation' travels to Venezuela in support of socialism, Maduro

Not every member of the CTU is happy about this
Image source: Timcast YouTube video screenshot

A self-appointed "delegation" from the Chicago Teachers Union has caused quite a stir, after taking a trip to Venezuela — while promoting socialist policies and dictator Nicolas Maduro — in what critics are calling a "propaganda tour."
Ditch the fake news ==> Click here to get news you can trust sent right to your inbox. It's free!
What are the details?

Last month, a CTU organizer and three members took a crowd-funded tour of the economically crippled country, calling themselves a delegation of the union, the Chicago Tribune reported. The trip followed a formal CTU resolution condemning the United States for interfering with Venezuela's disputed regime and calling for America to lift its sanctions against the country.

While on the trip, the group blogged about their experiences on the site Radical Educator Collective, praising the country's "free social programs" which "began under Hugo Chavez, and continue to operate under Nicolas Maduro."

The U.S. government no longer considers Maduro to be Venezuela's leader, but formerly recognizes opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country's president.

Although CTU has since tried to distance itself from the group's controversial charade, the union promoted the delegation's trip on Twitter, even retweeting a message from one of the travelers, Sarah Chambers, who wrote, "While staying in #Venezuela, we didn't see a single homeless person. USA is the richest country in the world; yet, there are homeless people everywhere. Over 17k CPS students are homeless...This is why @CTULocal1 is fighting for fair housing #CTUAgainstVezIntervention."

One follower responded, "What the Delegation fails to acknowledge is they used the CTU name to raise the funds, to set up meetings, to blog their 'findings.' This was never voted on. They don't get it. Irresponsible and reckless."

Not every member of the union is happy about the trip, either. One CTU teacher told the Tribune, "I am appalled a delegation representing themselves as CTU went to Venezuela, not to support striking teachers, not to object to human rights violations, but to go on what appears to be a state-chaperoned propaganda tour."
Anything else?

After the Chicago Tribune's story broke, Sarah Chambers went on attack against not only the delegation's critics, but the paper. The teacher wrote on Twitter, "It's absurd that the racist Trib, attacks rank&file teachers 4 traveling to Venezuela, w/a former CPS sub tour guide (not the gov), to hear their stories and learn about the consequences of USA's economic war. Trib has never supported black/brown self-determination in Chi or abroad."

Chambers added in follow-up posts, "Ppl here who have never been to countries attacked by the USA sure have a lot of opinions. We wanted 1st hand stories," explaining how the group not only visited schools but "worker owned factories, 50k ppl protests" and unions. She added, "Why do ppl believe the USA propaganda news before these ppl?"

He will remain with me. Can’t bear the thought when the end does come for him.

Dogs can cope with both blindness and deafness as long as they are well cared for and loved. He looks like a Brussels Griffon which usually have long lives, and love being with their owners, snuggled up on the sofa. Enjoy him while you can, but you will know when he is in pain and must make the final trip to the vet. Well loved dogs are such a part of our lives that we know they will be waiting for us at the gate so they can go through with us.

PeterS, here are the facts:
Israel is NOT a Socialist country. It has a free market economy like the US.
Israel is a Parliamentary democracy. There is the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial.
The Executive is under the Prime Minister, now currently PM Netanyahu.
Israel functions on a "Free Market Economy" commonly known as "Capitalism", similar to the US and the rest of the Western world.

In 2017, census in Israel recorded its population to be 8.712 million.
It has 8,522 sq. miles. The smallest country in the Middle east surrounded by all Muslims.
Compared to its size and population Israel’s GDP in 2017 350.9 billion USD.

Israel has its robust economy. It is able to provide medical care for all its people. And free education to all the Jewish people. The Jewish people are smart coming from the ancestry of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Israel is the envy of all Muslim countries that surround it, and Muslims want to destroy them and take over their land given to them by God, the land of Canaan, or the Promised land.

Jews are smart/brilliant and hardworking people. That is why their economy is the envy of all Muslims, and even Hitler tried to destroy all of them thru the Holocaust.

Israel through series of wars and conquest, were scattered all over the world.

However, in 1948, the UN decided to return the Jewish people to their land called Israel.

Israel has been attacked several times by Muslims but despite of her small number, they always won against the Muslims. Here are some of them:
1. Israeli war of independence (November 1947 – July 1949) – Started as 6 months of civil war. Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Israel won.
2. Reprisal Operation. Israel in defense of their territory carried by attacks of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. Israel won.
3. Six Day War in 1967. Attacks carried by Arab neighbors,
Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. The nations of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria, All of these wars, Israel won.

Until now, Israel has been constantly attacked by the Muslim countries that surround them
We must remember that Mohammad’s soldiers from Mecca, came to the Middle East during the 7th century,and killed most Christians, and Jews. Israel own the land some 3500 or more years before the Muslims came. It was given to them by God. The land of Canaan, the promised land.

Note: Israel DOES NOT have an OPEN BORDER POLICY. The people who visit are screened, ensuring that they are not enemies and terrorists or support terrorists like Tlaib and Omar.

This has been around quite sometime; however, a reminder can be thought inducing.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.

No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

Why the early bird gets the worm;

Life isn't always fair;

And maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death:-

by his parents, Truth and Trust,

by his wife, Discretion,

by his daughter, Responsibility,

and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 stepchildren:-

I Know My Rights

I Want It Now

Someone Else Is To Blame

I'm A Victim
Pay me for Doing Nothing

Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Jihad Watch

Exposing the role that Islamic jihad theology and ideology play in the modern global conflicts
Philadelphia: Maurice Hill, who wounded six cops in shootout, is devout Muslim who attended jihadi mosque

Aug 16, 2019 12:00 pm By Robert Spencer 91 Comments

You can see from the impressive zebiba on Maurice Hill’s forehead that he is a devout Muslim; the zebiba is a bruise that forms from the fact that Muslims in their five daily prayers perform numerous prostrations, pressing their foreheads to the ground. The zebiba is seen as a mark of intense piety. That in itself doesn’t make this a jihad attack, but the teachings of the mosque, from the looks of this report, are clearly suspect; the mosque should be investigated. If Maurice Hill were a white supremacist neo-Nazi, would the establishment media be as indifferent to that detail as it is to Hill’s mosque membership? What do you think?

“Clarion Intel Exclusive: Philadelphia Shooter Attended Radical Mosque,” Clarion Project, August 16, 2019:

Maurice Hill, the criminal who wounded six police officers in a shootout in Philadelphia and was arrested after a seven-hour standoff, attended a radical mosque.

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.

Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.

Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.

At this point, there is no indication that Hill’s shooting of police officers was motivated by Islamism or anything other than a desire to resist arrest.

However, Islamism’s inherent hostility towards Western governments and values fuels anti-police bigotry that can justify violence against law enforcement. Clarion’s sources stated that many of the mosque’s attendees view the police as oppressors of Muslims….

Likewise . all those who even attempt to shoot police officers must have murderous intentions. They are blatant villains. The Bible teaches that a murderer “will not inherit the kingdom of God. “ Galatians 5:2
