Levin: No Civil Society Can Survive with Open Borders
by Emily Ward 
{cnsnews.com} ~ On his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Thursday night, host and American lawyer Mark Levin said... “No civil society can survive open borders.” “No civil society can survive open borders,” Mark Levin stated. “None has. None will. We’re a nation-state. We have borders. Borders are to be respected by foreigners. If foreigners want to visit our country, they need permission. If they want to come here permanently, they need permission. If they want to be citizens, they need permission.” Levin’s remarks came after President Donald Trump announced his intention to sign an executive order ending birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants...

State Department provided 'clearly false' statements 
to derail requests for scumb/liar-Clinton docs, 
'shocked' federal judge says
by Gregg Re   
{foxnews.com} ~ In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused... career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth also said he was "shocked" and  "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former scumbag/liar-Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of scumbag/liar-Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks. "I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton email case," Lamberth said during the hearing. The Department of Justice's Inspector General (IG), Michael Horowitz, noted in a bombshell report in June that it was "inconsistent with typical investigative strategy" for the FBI to allow Mills to sit in during the agency's interview of scumbag/liar-Clinton during the email probe, given that classified information traveled through Mills' personal email account. "There are serious potential ramifications when one witness attends another witness' interview," the IG wrote...  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/state-department-provided-clearly-...

9 Years Into Common Core, 
Test Scores Are Down, Indoctrination Up 
by Joy Pullmann
{thefederalist.com} ~ It’s been about nine years since the scumbag/liar-nObama administration lured states into adopting Common Core sight unseen... with promises it would improve student achievement. Like President scumbag/liar-nObama’s other big promises — “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” — this one’s been proven a scam. “If you set and enforce rigorous and challenging standards and assessments; if you put outstanding teachers at the front of the classroom; if you turn around failing schools — your state can win a Race to the Top grant that will not only help students out  compete workers around the world, but let them fulfill their God-given potential,” President scumbag/liar-nObama said in July 2009. He went on to state his faith that Common Core — at that point unwritten — would “not only make America’s entire education system the envy of the world, but we will launch a Race to the Top that will prepare every child, everywhere in America, for the challenges of the 21st century.” Race to the Top was a $4 billion money pot inside the 2009 stimulus that helped bribe states into Common Core. So here we are, nine years later. Common Core has been officially rolled out into U.S. public and even many private schools for at least three to five years now. Are American children increasingly prepared for the “the challenges of the 21st century”? We’re actually seeing the opposite. They’re increasingly less prepared. And there’s mounting evidence that Common Core deserves some of the blame...  http://thefederalist.com/2018/11/05/9-years-common-core-test-scores...

Levin: “A Time To Stand”
by sundance
{theconservativetreehouse.com} ~ Mark Levin took the time during his opening segment last night to frame the importance of the midterm election... President Trump will leave nothing on the battlefield; he is working, campaigning and fighting on our behalf. Now, with the election less than 24 hours away, it is time for us to stand and take action…The media narrative controllers are fully engaged along with their political brethren. Do not look away. The vulgar lies and filth are extreme as ideological entities utilize their microphones in a brutal attempt to advance their position in the mid-term election…Deliberate intent and prudence ensures we avoid failure. The course, is thoughtful vigilance; it is a strategy devoid of emotion. The media can call us anything they want, it really doesn’t matter…. we’re far beyond the place where labels matter. As we bear witness to the mob, anyone trying to convince us this entire assembly of our union is headed in the right direction, well, they might want to revisit their proximity to the 2018 election ballpark. Because they’re not just out of the city – they’re also out of the same state the election ballpark is located in….. Then again, the media know that...

The Middle East "Truce": Why Hamas Cannot Be Trusted
by Bassam Tawil
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ It is no secret that most of the Arab countries do not trust Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group. President Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority, for instance... as well as many Palestinians, do not have any confidence in Hamas, particularly after the summer of 2007, when the Islamist movement violently seized control of the Gaza Strip. Earlier this year, Abbas threatened that "shoes will be pouring" onto the heads of Hamas leaders. Now, however, Israel is being asked to trust Hamas. This request is coming from Egypt, Qatar, and the United Nations, whose representatives have been working hard the past few weeks to arrange a truce agreement between Israel and Hamas. According to unconfirmed reports, the proposed truce calls for reopening all the border crossings between the Gaza Strip on one side, and Israel and Egypt on the other. The truce also apparently calls for expanding the fishing zone off the Gaza Strip coast to 9 miles; paying salaries to thousands of Hamas employees, and increasing fuel supplies to the only power plant in Gaza. Qatar -- a country that has long been supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot, Hamas -- will be required to pay for the fuel and the salaries, according to the proposed truce agreement. What will Israel get in return? Calm. This means a Hamas promise temporarily to stop launching terrorist attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip. This promise by Hamas also includes temporarily halting the weekly, Hamas-sponsored, violent riots along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel... Now that is a lie.

Presidential Vision and Self-Restraint

by Judge Andrew Napolitano

{townhall.com} ~ I was sitting at Mass last Sunday in a cavernous Catholic church on Manhattan's Upper West Side near Lincoln Center, praying and thinking about the horrible events in America last week.

A white supremacist who lived in a truck covered with images of Donald Trump and his political adversaries terrorized the neighborhood in which I live and much of the country by sending pipe bombs to former presidents and other prominent dummycrats-Democrats and to CNN through the Postal Service. A virulent hater of foreign-born people and Jewish people killed 11 innocent Jewish worshippers using a lawfully owned semiautomatic rifle in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

And the president of the United States lamented publicly that these events might serve to halt what he called momentum toward Republican candidates in the nationwide voting next week because the news media -- of which I am a tiny part -- might dwell on these human tragedies and thus not pay sufficient attention to him and his message between now and Election Day.

These events shook me deeply, as they did many Americans. Yet as the Mass on Sunday proceeded, the Gospel reading brought me some small understanding.

A blind beggar named Bartimaeus learns that Jesus is about to walk near him, so he shouts over the noise of the crowd surrounding Him: "Jesus, son of David, have pity on me." When no one responds, he shouts it again -- and then again and again, until eventually Jesus hears him and shouts back, "What do you want of me?"

Bartimaeus replies: "O Lord, that I might see." Jesus responds by restoring the blind man's sight.

The scene is historically rich and theologically complex. Its richness comes in the realization that the first recorded instance in which Jesus is referred to publicly as being divine comes out of the mouth of a blind man. The complexity is the fulfillment of Jesus' own prophecy, as well as the resolution of His natural human impatience with His disciples' haughtiness as they recognize for the first time that the truth will not come exclusively out of their mouths or even the mouths of the well-tutored but often will come out of the mouths of babes, so to speak.

This biblical scene is a metaphor for our own age. Most of us can see with our eyes we have the gift of biological sight, but we lack full understanding -- the mental ability to "see" into the hearts and minds of evil ones around us.

The world is not so happily arranged that our understanding can discern the evil in people who choose darkness over light -- hence the need for leadership that liberates and heals rather than stifle and wound.

President Trump -- like all his modern predecessors -- has a buIly pulpit available to him. He has the means through which to mold the hearts and minds of people to do good and to avoid evil, and he has the means through which, as well, to intimidate them into fear of challenging him.

And that bully pulpit must be exercised within the confines of the Constitution, because it -- and it alone -- is both the source of and the restraint on presidential power.

Should tragedies of terror and horror be exploited for political purposes? Should presidents lament unforeseeable fear and bloodshed because they divert our eyes and ears from the presidential political message or because real innocent human beings have suffered horrifically and irreversibly and those who have survived yearn for the balm that only a true leader who has genuine empathetic understanding can bring? Should the president's bully pulpit be used to divide and polarize or to unify and uplift?

If you are reading this column in the ordinary way, you already have the gift that Bartimaeus begged for and received. Yet each of us is a modern-day Bartimaeus -- seeking that other sight, the one we call understanding. We hope to see it and its cousins -- self-restraint and human compassion -- in the presidential heart. I do not see them in this president.

They are not there when 
dummycrats-Democrats -- of whom I have never been one -- are branded as evildoers. They are not there when the often articulate words of public presidential critics -- of which I am not usually one -- are characterized as fake or treasonous or even the enemy of the people.

They are not there when this president appears to see every tragedy and embrace every event in terms of himself and his short-term political needs rather than defend the Constitution, which he has sworn to uphold. They are not there when he claims he can amend the Constitution on his own and deny birthright citizenship to babies born in America to undocumented parents. And they are not there when large and deep segments of the American populace are presidentially ridiculed and alienated rather than embraced and invited in.

What to do about this? The Donald Trump I have known personally for 30 years is warm, gregarious and bighearted. The Donald Trump I have seen this election season is angry, reckless and lacking in understanding.

His words have given comfort to the worst among us.

To be a successful president, he needs externally what he lacks internally -- restraint. Restraint produces introspection and understanding and respect for the opinions of those who disagree.

In our constitutional system, exterior restraint on the president can come only from Congress. That means that 
dummycrats-Democrats -- with whom I agree on next to nothing -- if they win the House of Representatives, may actually save Donald Trump from himself because he will be constitutionally compelled to respect and understand and work with them.

A politically divided federal government is often frustrating and slow. Neither side gets all it wants. But like the persistence of the sightless beggar Bartimaeus, a divided federal government just might produce more understanding for more people -- and perhaps some presidential self-restraint -- and then the binding of many wounds.

ALERT ALERT

ALERT --> Minnesota Elects First Muslim Congresswoman In US History!!!

Minnesota voters sent Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar of the DFL party to Congress on Tuesday night after she defeated Republican candidate Jennifer Zielinski by a 78-22% margin.

Omar and Michigan House candidate Rashida Tlaib (D) both became the first two Muslim-American women to serve in Congress after their election victories on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Yesterday Ilhan Omar won her election in Minnesota, becoming the first Muslim woman elected to Congress.

Today, she had to appear before a judge for her hearing regarding ethics violations.

It’s been less than 24 hrs since she won and she’s already in court for her corruption.

2,159 people are talking about this

Omar, along with being the first Muslim women elected to Congress is also the first Somali-American member of Congress, a seat in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district which was previously held by Keith Ellison, who was the first Muslim ever elected to US Congress. Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district has not elected a Republican to Congress since 1962. The district includes Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs.

The Minnesota state congresswoman ran a progressive platform which included “Medicare for all,” criminal justice reform and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Omar, a Somali refugee, came to the U.S. at 12 years old, which is why she often attacks President Trump‘s travel ban against a number of Muslim-majority countries which happen to be terror hotbeds.

In August, Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer confronted both Ilhan and Tlaib, who have both expressed hatred for Jewish people and who are campaigning with pro-HAMAS Linda Sarsour and CAIR, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

When Loomer confronted Tlaib at one of Ilhan’s campaign events, Tlaib assaulted Loomer, and a police report was filed.

Omar’s campaign and election, however, are still clouded in controversy. Omar has been accused of marrying her brother and committing immigration fraud.

The day after her victory, Omar appeared in court to face a judge about the campaign finance violations she has been accused of.

Ilhan Omar was also arrested in 2013 for trespassing.

This is Ilhan Omar.

She won an election last night & is now the first Somali woman elected to US Congress.

This is her mug shot.

Along w/ being a criminal, as you can see, she committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother so he could get a green card.

Good riddance.

It’s been less than 24 hrs since she won and she’s already in court for her corruption.

Omar has also faced criticism for her ties to CAIR, campaigning with jihadi activist Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, who has been accused of domestic violence, and her public display of anti-Semitism, all of which has been either under-reported and ignored by the local Minnesota media.
