In 1937, an editorial in The New York Times declared that "what is truly vicious is not propaganda but a monopoly of it." Thus begins an article titled "Propaganda Techniques of German Fascism," written by Clyde R. Miller and reprinted in the fifth edition of Modern English Readings (1946). This text was used by college students. There is nothing dealing with gender, white privilege, social justice, the religion of peace, or alleged microaggressions.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass.) thinks she knows what ails capitalism: There aren't enough people telling the biggest businesses what to do.
Try to contain your surprise that Warren believes the profit motive is ruining capitalism. She wants the largest corporations in the United States to be legally answerable to people other than their shareholders, and she's introducing a bill to force it. This Bill would be outright THEFT.
During the week, President Trump revoked the Security Clearance of former CIA DIrector John Brennan for, among other things, his conduct since leaving government. That revocation triggered form Obama loyalists to explode in outrage; one such person being Admiral McRaven, who dared Trump to revoke HIS Security Clearance as well.
In McRaven's Opinion piece, published in the news, McRaven may have violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Here is one former Military member's response to Admiral McRaven:
It was only a matter of time. Mimicking what leftists themselves might call McCarthyism, the left is demanding a blacklist of those who oppose its political ideology.
Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor of the Boston Globe, is at this moment patting herself on the back. She is, in her own mind, a heroine. She alone conceived the idea to encourage newspapers all over the country to publish anti-Trump editorials on Thursday, August 16.
"They" are preciously called "immigrants," "refugees," "migrants," "undocumented Americans," and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts – we purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans.
Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving, uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from "third-world," countries.
Who are these Mexicans, Africans, South Americans, Asians, and others whose feet Nancy Pelosi has washed and the pope kissed? What is it these luminaries see that we do not? We – reputedly the most selfish, evil, detestable creatures on Earth?
About 58 percent, or nearly 6-in-10 refugees have "below basic" English skills after living in the U.S. for five years. These unassimilated refugees are sometimes described as "functionally illiterate[.]" ...
Since 2008, as Breitbart News reported, the U.S. [with the "help" of "religious" and civilian "immigrant" organizations raking in billions of dollars] has permanently resettled more than 1.7 million foreign nationals and refugees through a variety of humanitarian programs like the Special Immigrant Juveniles, and the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act.
The majority, about 56 percent, of refugee households between 2011 and 2015 were on food stamps, a welfare service that is subsidized by the American taxpayer.
Nearly 30 percent of refugees received cash welfare of some sort between 2011 and 2015, while 34 percent of refugees 18-years-old or older said they had no health insurance.
Of the refugees who said they did have health insurance, about 50 percent said they were either on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance, both of which are taxpayer-funded.
Based upon commonsense analysis of the presented facts, it seems some of these "folks" do not come here to actually be Americans. It seems they do not want to be "assimilated" or to learn English. Or work. Or be responsible for their own finances, or for any employable future.
If you come to another country, but you have no dream to become one with it – and you express hatred and anger for your host while praising and promoting your own country and vengefully flying its flag, and you say out loud that you want to vanquish and control the host – then you are a foreign invader. A conquering army.
When the Italians, Irish, Jews, and others came to America around the beginning of the 20th century – escaping the Old World, imbued with genuine desire to become 100% American – they had to stop at Ellis Island, the federal immigration station, isolated on 27.5 acres in the Upper New York Bay.
These people, including my own Jewish ancestors, came to America at the turn of the 20th century to escape actual ethnic cleansing of the Pogroms, or mass murders – poverty and suppression – and to fulfill a dream of becoming Americans. They didn't "protest," march, or fly the flags of their home countries. They learned English, entered or created American jobs, and became financially and societally successful.
There was no American welfare state. There were no "freebie" benefits as there are now, a hundred years later.
These immigrants of the early 20th century came to America to be free, to stand individually, to provide for their families, to create, and to become 100% Americans.
There is precedent here. There is ancestral experience and assimilation in America here. There are those who know what it means to be an immigrant and escape to a better world in America.
The American Dream has never been one of living on welfare or benefits while maintaining and promoting your own "culture," language, religion, and laws. It's not about being a Mexican or an African or any other nationality.
America is about being American.
It's the same in any country. You don't go to Mexico or Saudi Arabia or Zimbabwe, and fly the American flag and declare you're there to take over. You would probably be arrested or killed in those countries.
In America, you are protected by law. You are an American.
If you are a real, legal immigrant, and not an invader – you came here for truth, justice, and the American way.
If you came here but don't want to be an American, or you want to eradicate America and be in control through ethnicity, religion, or foreign law – go home. Or go somewhere else.

Chris Cuomo announced Monday night that CNN will not condemn but instead justify political violence against anyone it defines as “bigots” — which, according to the network’s editorial tone over the past two years, signals open season on all Trump supporters for violent activists like Antifa and the Black Bloc.
To legitimize political violence, Cuomo said, “All punches are not equal morally… Drawing a moral equivalency between those espousing hate and those fighting it, because they both resort to violence emboldens hate, legitimized hateful belief and elevates what should be stamped out.”
The American Left is stoking hatred and it’s tearing us apart. Our media is guilty of not only of failing to shame those responsible, in many cases they egg them on, giving them a platform. The volume of irrational hatred spewing into our ether is extremely unhealthy, even dangerous for our republic and the broader American culture.
Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-semite. Julian Assange is a rapist, a Russian agent and a terrorist. Donald Trump is an anti-semite, a rapist AND a Russian agent. Vladimir Putin wants to invade and enslave the entire western world and to that end employs Assange, Trump, maybe also Corbyn(?), as well as thousands upon thousands of hackers and murderers who make people vote for whoever Putin chooses, and poison former Russian agents on western soil.
These allegations, and there’s many more of them, have a number of things in common. Most importantly, they serve to change your mind. They serve to change your perception of reality. They seek to whip up your support for the very people and forces that launch them into the media.
Attorney Allan J. Favish reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appears to have LIED to a FISA Judge.
The phone rang early the other day. “Well, our center’s still standing,” my partner said. “The fire’s only a couple blocks from us, the whole town of Lakeport’s been evacuated. I think we’ll be ok, but it’s out of control.”
