Why Are Elected Politicians Legitimizing Terrorist Front Group?
by Steven Emerson
{ investigativeproject.org } ~ In jumping to appear before cameras and rallies to condemn this week's Supreme Court ruling on President Trump's travel ban... several elected dummycrats-Democrats empowered and legitimized an Islamist group whose leaders continue to engage in radical, incendiary speech. At a rally Tuesday that was well covered by national news outlets, at least seven dummycrats-Democrats from the House and Senate spoke and shared the dais with Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad. CAIR also was among the rally's 50 sponsors. As we have repeatedly reported since 2009, the FBI has a formal policy prohibiting "outreach" – or communication outside of investigations – with CAIR due to its documented roots in a Hamas-support network created by the Muslim Brotherhood...And why isn't the FBI acting on those dummycrats-Dems.

liar-nObama Traded U.S. Passports for Nuclear Deal with Iran 
{ patrioticviralnews.com } ~ liar-nObama’s Iran nuclear deal was a terrible deal from the very beginning... It was also one of the stupidest foreign policy deals that any presidential administration has ever entered into with a hostile nation. liar-nObama gave away the farm, as if America had somehow lost a war with Iran and had to surrender everything on the table. Here’s how the deal went. Iran gets billions of dollars in seized funds back from the United States — money which was seized in response to the 1980 act of terror that Iran committed against us by holding Americans hostages in captivity for more than a year. In addition, liar-nObama and former Secretary of State hanoi-John Kerry sent the mullahs pallets of untraceable cash, because apparently the State Department keeps pallets of cash lying around in case it needs to bribe anyone. Plus, Iran gets to keep running nuclear plants which would eventually lead to the creation of nuclear weapons. That was Iran’s side of the deal. On the American side of the deal, we got… hmmm… must be here somewhere. What did we get again? Oh, right, liar-nObama negotiated a deal in which Iran got everything it asked for and America got NOTHING in return. Stupidest. Deal. Ever...

Iran Promises to Choke Hormuz Strait if US Blocks Oil Exports 
by Alice Greene 
{ punchingbagpost.com } ~ An Iranian official on Wednesday threatened to block all oil exports from the Strait of Hormuz... if the United States succeeds in its promise to halt crude sales from Tehran. The Strait of Hormuz, which is located at the mouth of the Persian Gulf between Iran to the north and the UAE to the south, is often cited as the most important oil chokepoint in the world. Up to 30% of all seaborne-traded crude oil moves through the Strait of Hormuz each year. “Any hostile attempt by the US will be followed by an exorbitant cost for them,” said Esmail Kowsari, deputy commander of the Sarollah Revolutionary Guards. The US military responded to Iran's threats by confirming that American sailors and their allies are standing by to “ensure freedom of navigation.”...   http://punchingbagpost.com/iran-promises-to-choke-hormuz-strait-if-...

Pruitt Has Been Gone For Less Than 
A Day And His Replacement Is Already Getting Attacked
by Tim Pearce
{ dailycaller.com } ~ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) acting administrator Andrew Wheeler has not finished a day as head of the agency before getting attacked... for his stance on climate change and history as a coal lobbyist. Former EPA head Scott Pruitt resigned Thursday and President Donald Trump installed Wheeler as the EPA’s acting administrator for the interim. Trump announced the news on Twitter. The preliminary attacks have come chiefly from environmental organizations, liberal news outlets and journalists. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) tweeted a blog post written after the Senate confirmed Wheeler in April on why Americans should be “afraid of him.” “Make no mistake: we’ll fight Wheeler’s pollution agenda with the same vigor as we did Pruitt’s,” NRDC tweeted...

Expose the Palestinian ‘Refugee’ Scam 
by Jonathan Schanzer and Richard Goldberg
{ defenddemocracy.org } ~ If President Trump wants to promote peace in the Middle East, his first step should be to declassify a key State Department report... that would end the myth of Palestinian “refugees.” The United Nations Relief and Works Agency is singularly devoted to the Palestinian refugee issue. Unrwa labels more than five million Palestinians “refugees”—an impossible figure. The first Arab-Israeli war, in 1948, yielded roughly 800,000 Palestinian Arab refugees. Perhaps 30,000 remain alive today, but Unrwa has kept the refugee issue alive by labeling their descendants—in some cases great-great-grandchildren—as “refugees,” who insist on the “right of return” to their ancestors’ homes. Israel categorically rejects this demand. Unrwa’s operations run counter to the broader mission of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, which is to resettle those displaced by war. Unrwa’s mission, on the other hand, keeps the conflict’s embers glowing by refusing to resettle Palestinians in neighboring countries or even in the Palestinian territories...

Don't Conform to the Millennial Label 
by Caroline C. Lewis:  Whether it’s avocado toast, selfies or socialism, Millennials always seem to be in the news. But what exactly is a Millennial? While the media tend to portray Millennials as a fixed age group, not all researchers agree on exact parameters. Pew Research, for example, defines Millennials as those born between 1982 and 1996, while researchers William Strauss and Neil Howe define them as those born between 1982 and 2004. Different still, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation defines Millennials as those born between 1980 and 1999. But it’s not just years of birth that distinguish these individuals.

             A generation’s unique coming-of-age experiences certainly shed light on certain trends. For example, members of the “GI” or “Greatest Generation” all grew up during the Great Depression and then fought World War II, which shaped their perspectives and gave them (for the most part) common cause, common patriotism and shared values of duty, honor and country.
               However, tracing generational patterns differs significantly from the current exploitation of the Millennial generation, which ascribes to Millennials specific political values, moral (or lack of moral) priorities and a narcissistic philosophy of life. As if just because you happened to be born in the 1980s and 90s, you must have certain beliefs and values. As if the stars aligned for your birth and, according to your generational horoscope, you must be a socialist. Such assumptions about Millennials deny a person’s individual ability to think for himself or herself.
               Consider the many articles that instruct employers on how to “help” their Millennial employees, whose generation-specific perspectives purportedly clash with their own. Ponder the policy consultants who teach candidates how to “reach the Millennials.” Or branding specialists who design marketing schemes “for Millennials.” No equivalent exists for members of Gen X, Boomers or the Silent Generation. No one says, “I can help you sell a vacuum cleaner to a Gen Xer” or “I can win the Silent Generation voting bloc for you.” Why?
               The answer lies in the numbers. According to Pew Research, in 2019, the number of Millennials will surpass the number of Baby Boomers. This means that they will comprise the largest number of product-purchasing adults. It also means that they will comprise the largest number of voting adults.
               Creating (and marketing) a specific value-system would be a useful tool to control a group of people, would it not? After all, it’s worked for dummycrats-Democrats with minorities and women.
               Having a specific (albeit dictated) value system feeds a person’s natural desire for community and acceptance. So Millennials who do not participate in the “Millennial values” scheme are made to feel different and unaccepted by their age group. The use of social pressure reinforces the value-system, preordained by the media and popular culture.
               Consider a recent internet ad: “Best Places to Live for Millennials.” Implication: If you don’t like living in these types of places, you’re a loser. Marketing this way causes a person to rethink his or her own thoughts and opinions to conform with what “everybody my age” is doing.
               On a lifestyle level, consider a church-attending male who doesn’t sleep with his girlfriend. Rather than being praised by his peers for having standards, he is made to feel odd. Consider the conservative female who has traditional values of family and femininity. She is made to feel old-fashioned, out-of-touch and an traitor to her sex and her generation. Thus, promoting the Millennial label as a value-system creates ideological conformity through social pressure. This is a genius strategy if you want to win elections, raise money or sell products because it controls how members of an entire generation think of themselves and their place in the world.
               Because of this perceived “value system,” Millennials have been transformed into both a grievance group and a voting bloc. Re-enforced by the public narrative, many Millennials believe themselves to be victims of student loan debt, victims of parents who didn’t teach them proper “adulting” or victims of a society that doesn’t understand how to meet their self-esteem needs. Additionally, public opinion expects Millennials, as a voting bloc, to support big government, social programs, massive debt and wealth redistribution.
               However, the expected Millennial value system denies one basic thing: People have the freedom to think for themselves. Pushing a generational ideological agenda strips people of being able to have their own thoughts and opinions. In short, the Millennial value system stands as an oppressive form of thought conformity that leverages social pressure to achieve generational groupthink. As such, the fabricated Millennial value system could actually qualify as a social construct.
               This fabricated social construct seeks to deny independent thinking and to exploit both the buying and voting choices of an entire generation. It’s time for Millennials to think for themselves, to reject labels and to oppose generational groupthink. Rather than be a grievance group defined by socialist leanings, student debt and narcissism, Millennials need to have the courage to think independently, to pursue honest dialogue and to reject the bankrupt ideas the purveyors of identity politics expect them to believe.
               This article does not necessarily reflect the generational groupthink widely considered as “Millennial values.” Rather, it was written by a non-conforming, independent thinker who happens to have been born in the 1980s.

ALERT ALERT

 Gun Control Crowd Silent After Black Female
 Kills Three In Maryland Shooting 

A 26-year-old female stormed a RiteAid distribution center with a pistol this morning in Aberdeen, MD, killing three before turning the weapon on herself, according to police.

“Our suspect is a lone female suspect, age 26, who had a last known address in Baltimore County. She has died at the hospital from fatal injury, a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said.

The shooter has been identified by multiple news outlets as Snochia Moseley, a disgruntled temporary employee who also happens to be a black female.

Normally in the case of a mass shooting incident like this, Twitter would be ablaze with calls for gun control measures, inane nonsense about terrorism, labels of toxic masculinity and dismantling gun rights groups like the NRA.

But something is different about today’s shooting: it was not carried out by a white male, leading to deafening silence from the usual suspects in the anti-gun world.

Moms Demand Action, a gun control group partnered with far left Everytown for Gun Safety, has been silent except for a generic “condolences” message posted to its Twitter page.

The group’s founder, ever-outspoken Shannon Watts, has not said a word about the shooting on her active Twitter feed.

There has been nothing but silence from petulant David Hogg, face of the Hitler youth pre-pubescent gun control crowd, who rose to national prominence after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February which killed 17.

Leftist activist Michael Moore has not weighed in, either (literally or figuratively).

Nor is cable news playing the story on repeat with live coverage, a “BREAKING NEWS” chyron, and gun-control activists on call as guests during every segment.

If all of these “activists” truly believed in the cause, shouldn’t the standard be the same regardless of the ethnicity and gender of the shooter?

Big League Politics reached out to Shannon Watts to ask her just that. She did not return our request for comment.

The FBI, the DEA, the ATF, the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police and the local municipal departments of Aberdeen, Havre de Grace and Bel Air are all investigating the incident.
