 UC Berkeley 'Braces' as Cat 3 Free Speech Nears 
by Nate Jackson: Berkeley braces for right-wing talk show host Ben Shapiro’s visit,” blares the headline at the Los Angeles Times. What the story is about, of course, is the left-wing antifa hoodlums at the University of California-Berkeley who will raise Cain over Shapiro exercising his free speech rights to discuss politics from a conservative point of view. So why is the LA Times characterizing it as the school “bracing” for Shapiro’s Sept. 14 speech? Because the leftist rag is sympathetic to the leftist mob.
          Given Berkeley’s ignominious history of campus brownshirts rioting over conservative speakers, the Times notes the school will have an “increased and highly visible police presence” and a “closed perimeter” around the building — access granted only to those with tickets for the speech. At least initially, the school limited ticket sales to half the venue’s capacity, including closing the balcony over safety concerns.
          Somewhat humorously, the Times reports, “The university also is offering counseling to students and faculty worried about the event.” A speech by a mainstream conservative at a major university requires counseling for “triggered” students? And without any sense of irony, the school says, “No one should be made to feel threatened or harassed simply because of who they are or for what they believe.” Except conservative speakers, we suppose. Heck, Shapiro left Breitbart News in 2016 over the site’s deep support for Donald Trump, and still students are too fragile to hear what he has to say. Not only fragile, but violent. Let the irony sink in for a minute that these self-styled “Nazi hunters” are targeting a Jew.
          Berkeley students were spared facing a hurricane, but heaven help them as they endure proximity to a speech. Oops — we used the word “heaven”…  ~The Patriot Post

Street Fighter Steve Bannon Outlines
His New Mission Serving President Trump
{rickwells.us} ~ ABC anchor Charlie Rose, a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations, interviewed Trump adviser and friend of the American patriot Steve Bannon at Bannon’s home last week... Bannon no resigned his post last month but continues to remain in contact with President Trump. Rose asks “So how do you want to be perceived? You, today – because you have a media image.” Bannon says, “The media image, I think, is pretty accurate. I’m a street fighter. That’s what I am. He says he thinks that is why he and the President get along so well, they share that characteristic. He describes President Trump as “a great counter-puncher.” Bannon pledges, “I’m going to be his wingman outside for the entire time. Our purpose is to support Donald Trump.” Rose asks, “And to destroy his enemies?” Bannon replies, “To make sure his enemies know that there’s no free shot on goal. “...  https://rickwells.us/steve-bannon-mission-trump/

'Iran is unquestionably the greatest threat to Israel'
by Yoni Kempinski
{israelnationalnews.com} ~ Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) on Monday participated in International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s (ICT) 17th annual international conference in Herzliya... "All Islamic terror is supported by Tehran," Liberman said. "This includes Sunni terror, the groups in Yemen, and even Al-Qaeda. And we are all aware of the cooperation between Al-Qaeda and Iran's Revolutionary Guard." "Terror is a radical ideology which abuses the weak and supposedly works for their benefit. Brutal methods and a lack of red lines characterize all terror organizations throughout the generations. Another characteristic is the attempt to 'export' the terror, to 'export' the revolution."...  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/235362?utm_source=activetrail&utm_medium=ema...

NK Puts New US Target in Crosshairs…
Casualty Rates Will Be “Off the Charts”
by Davis
{conservativetribune.com} ~ Tensions between the United States and North Korea have been dramatically increasing for the past few weeks, with North Korea routinely threatening a nuclear attack on the United States... The Pyongyang regime’s most recent threat is one of its most disturbing to date. North Korea’s state-run media claimed the country could kill millions of Americans by detonating an electro-magnetic pulse in the upper atmosphere over the United States, Fox News reported this week In its most basic terms, an EMP is a burst of energy that wipes out almost all electronic devices. Cell phones, car batteries, power stations, pretty much anything that runs on electricity, would be permanently fried, or at the very least severely damaged... https://conservativetribune.com/nk-new-us-target/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=conservativebyt...

RINO-John McCain: ‘Unconscionable’
to send Dreamers back
{gopusa.com} ~ Sen. RINO-John McCain says it would be unconscionable to send illegal immigrant “Dreamers” back to their home countries, urging Congress to pass a new amnesty as a part of comprehensive immigration reform... “It is not conscionable to tell young people who came here as children that they have to go back to a country that they don’t know,” Mr. RINO-McCain said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And, by the way, there’s 900 of these Dreamers that are serving in uniform in the United States military. Now, are we going to go to the young men or women serving in Afghanistan or Iraq today and say, ‘By the way, you’re a Dreamer, get back to fill in the blank’? We’re not going to do that to these young men and women who are serving in uniform.”...Get our of politics RINO-McCain, you are worthless.  http://www.gopusa.com/?p=30006?omhide=true

UN Amb Nikki Haley: Iran is Violating the Nuclear Deal
by Kerry Lear
{punchingbagpost.com} ~ Apparently, President Donald Trump would be on “solid ground” to declare that Iran has been in violation of the nuclear deal. .. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said at a meeting with the conservative American Enterprise Institute that a case could be made proving that Iran has not been compliant with the 2015 deal. "What happens next is significantly in Congress' hands. I get that Congress doesn't want this. This is not an easy situation for Congress," said Haley. "But our lives are not about being easy. Our lives are about being right."... http://punchingbagpost.com/un-amb-nikki-haley-iran-is-violating-the-nuclear-deal

Tommy The Commie
by Tom McLaughlin
 
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ The principal knocked lightly on my door in the middle of a class. When I looked up, he opened it a crack and said, “The superintendent wants see us in his office right after this period.
 
It was 1985. I was teaching US History and current events at the old Snow School in Fryeburg, Maine. The superintendent’s office was a short drive down Portland Street near the traffic lights which weren’t there yet. On the way, he told me it was a parent complaint. As we walked through the door, the secretary pointed to the superintendent’s office saying, “Go right in.”
“Mr. Smith (not his real name) was in here, angry,” he said after we both sat down in front of his desk. “His daughter is in your class, right?”

“Yes.”

“He told me you said President Reagan is either a liar of a fool — and he’s pissed. Did you say that?”

“I did, yes.”

“Why?” he asked.

“Well, Reagan said he wouldn’t negotiate with terrorists, but his administration traded weapons for hostages with Iran,” I answered.

“He said he didn’t know anything about it, but it was happening right under his nose. I can come to only two possible conclusions: either he knew about it and he’s lying, or he should have known about it but didn’t — and that would make him a fool.”

“That’s your opinion?”

“Yes.”

“Did you say it was your opinion?”

“I did.”

“I told Mr. Smith he should talk to you about it directly, and come back to me if you two can’t resolve it.”

“I appreciate that.”

“Here’s his number. Give him a call and let me know how you make out.”

“Mr. Smith” was a retired Marine and a large person, bigger than me at least. We sat down and I thanked him for coming in. He squared his shoulders and let me know that he didn’t like my criticism of President Reagan and why. I told him same thing I said to the superintendent. After a prolonged stare, he accepted it as he might accept that a bird had crapped on his windshield.
 
 
It wasn’t the first time I had annoyed a conservative parent. Another complaint came from a local attorney who also had a daughter in my class and had been elected to the school board. He objected to how I portrayed President Reagan’s invasion of Grenada. After covering what happened down there I had told students I agreed with those whose opinion it was that Reagan was trying to distract America’s attention from his disastrous deployment of American troops at the Beirut Airport. More than 200 US Marines had died in a truck bombing there less than a week before the Grenada invasion. We met and discussed particulars of where we disagreed about what motivated the Grenada invasion. Then he suggested that I needed to offer alternative viewpoints when I presented liberal interpretations to students.
 
That seemed reasonable, so I invited him into class to offer one, and a week or so later he did. He took most of a day in all four of my history classes explaining why Granada was important to shipping lanes leading into the Panama Canal. If the island were led by a communist government, American shipping could be threatened as well as US control of the canal itself. Then we both answered questions from students.
 
 
Later in the 1980s sometime I found myself sitting at a lunch counter next to a local heating contractor and oil dealer who also had a daughter in my class. After listening to her describe some of our classroom discussions at their dinner table, he concluded that I taught with a liberal bias. “People call you ‘Tommy the Commie,’” he said with a chuckle. “I’d appreciate it if you could offer the other side once in a while.” I thanked him for his feedback and promised I would try to do so.
 
Reactions from other conservatives in the community were similar. When they didn’t like the way I was teaching, they confronted me face-to-face with specific objections. We’d discuss issues rationally and with civility. If other conservatives complained about me behind my back, I never heard about it. By the early nineties, after I’d become conservative myself and my column was appearing regularly in local newspapers, many, many more complaints came from parents and other members of the community on the left.
 
I lost count of those, but I can recall only two that had names attached, and only one liberal parent ever sat down to talk with me. Typically I would hear from the principal that parents objected to a column or a lesson. When I asked who I’d be told they wanted to remain anonymous.
 
 
So do most of the leftists who comment on my blog. Come to think of it, so do the leftist thugs in Antifa.
 
There’s a definite pattern here.
