Conservatives Must Not Lose the Next Culture War
by Gabor Megadja
 
spectator.org } ~ Just recently, Facebook banned all advertising accounts of Mediaworks, a large media publisher in Hungary with many non-political outlets in its portfolio... Lovers of sports, gastronomy, and lifestyle will see less of what they like in their feed — likely until the end of the campaign for the ongoing European Parliamentary elections. Mediaworks publishes the most significant right-wing, pro-government mainstream political outlets in Hungary. In the USA that would be equivalent to shutting down Fox Network entirely, only to mute Fox News. Almost concurrently, Mark Zuckerberg met French President Emmanuel Macron to discuss wiping out “extremist” content from social media, as people of the European Union are about to elect their new European Parliament. In the meantime, the most influential conservative voices are systematically banned from Facebook and other social networks as we speak to purge social media for the 2020 elections. As opposed to the Russia hoax, this is truly election meddling. And if your President raises his voice about it, he is quickly accused of “attacking” social media. What if this creeping censorship will not stop at Alex Jones, but will eventually reach Fox News? What if this is an all-out war?Facebook & Co. claim that Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, David Horowitz, and many others are dangerous, violent “extremists.” At the same time radical Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood or Hamas are entitled to their safe spaces in the Zuckerberg Galaxy, and Grand Wizard David Duke can flood his Twitter-feed about the worldwide Jewish conspiracy. It’s ludicrous. The only reason conservative voices had to leave major social media platforms is that they are indeed dangerous — to the newest leftist totalitarianism. They were effective in getting Trump elected and perhaps they will be effective once again in 2020. They were arguably the most effective voices of the right and mainstream conservatives should take a stand for them...

scumbag/liar-nObama Appointees 
in the Communist Orbit
by Karin McQuillan
americanthinker.com } ~ This week Rush Limbaugh repeated a quote from scumbag-James Comey in a  New York Magazine interview:  “I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically... Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.” It’s hard to pin too much on that quote. Perhaps scumbag-Comey was joking by calling his vote for Jimmy Carter a vote for a Communist, in mockery of his supposedly fellow Republicans. Joking about support for Communism is not all that funny in the scumbag/liar-nObama administration. scumbag/liar-nObama’s CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan actually did vote for a Communist presidential candidate. scumbag/commie-Brennan and scumbag-Comey are two of the central players in the Russia Collusion Hoax. scumbag/liar-nObama choose Communists and Marxists for the highest, most powerful positions in our land, including his closest political advisors, and his head of the CIA. These facts are not in dispute. Most are openly admitted by the people in question, as necessary damage control. Our press chooses not to report them. Professor Paul Kengor has extensively researched the Chicago communists whose progeny include David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Hussein scumbag/liar-nObama. Add the openly Marxist, pro-communist Ayers, and you have many of the key players who put scumbag/liar-nObama into power. scumbag/commie-Brennan who was sworn in as CIA director on a draft of the US Constitution, without the Bill of Rights,  instead of a Bible said that while he had voted Communist, he wasn't an official member of the Communist Party - and was relieved that he had been accepted into the CIA. His Kenyan father was a communist, who met scumbag/liar-nObama’s mother, a radical leftist, in a Russian language class. Stanley Dunham, scumbag/liar-nObama’s white grandfather, chose a notorious member of the Communist Party to be scumbag/liar-nObama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.  scumbag/liar-nObama wrote in his memoir that in college, he sought out Marxist professors. A Marxist student at Occidental College, John Drew, confirms that scumbag/liar-nObama was a revolutionary Marxist in college. Drew recounts:  scumbag/liar-nObama… believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back …As I recall, scumbag/liar-nObama repeatedly used the phrase "When the revolution comes...."  …"There's going to be a revolution," scumbag/liar-nObama said, "we need to be organized and grow the movement." In scumbag/liar-nObama's view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution. …scumbag/liar-nObama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism...  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/05/obama_appointees_i...

Complaint Filed To IRS Against scumbag-Elijah Cummings For Illegal Activities And 
He’s In Big Trouble
by Dean James
{rightwingtribune.com} ~ While the democrats are going insane over  President Trump’s tax returns presumably to find something/anything that would show that he cheated on his taxes... they seem to have some problems with the good old IRS themselves. Let’s take the Trump hating lunatic scumbag-Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) for example.Apparently scumbag-Cummings is in deep trouble with the IRS for violating tax laws. The National Sentinel reports that a complaint filed with the IRS by the National Legal and Policy Center claims that a charity operated by the wife of House Oversight and Reform Committee chairman scumbag-Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) received millions of dollars from special interest organizations and corporations that were doing business before his panel, and could have been illegally utilized. According to the Washington Examiner, scumbag-Cumming’s wife, Maya Rockeymore, is currently the chairperson of the Maryland Democratic Party and, though he was once deeply in debt, scumbag-Cummings’ own financial situation has improved dramatically since he married her in 2008. Rep. scumbag-Elijah Cummings denied that corporate donations to his wife’s charity posed a conflict of interest with his House Oversight Committee chairmanship and denounced an IRS complaint filed against the organization as “a fabricated distraction” on Wednesday...

Illegal Immigration and the Trade War
by Brad Betters
americanthinker.com } ~ Following the freeze on trade talks last Friday, China’s apparently moved into full-out attack mode. After slapping new tariffs on thousands of U.S.-made products mostly meat and vegetables, the Chinese warned President Trump... “if you want to fight, we’ll fight you to the end.” Over these next few weeks of battle between both governments’ communications departments, will China finally pull out a major hole card it has against the U.S. on the unfair trade issue? That is, will it raise the issue of corporate labor subsidies created by America’s mass immigration system? By pursuing a system of mass unskilled migration unparalleled in the world, the U.S. artificially increases its supply of cheap labor. Such labor-surplus conditions work to give many U.S. companies including U.S. exporters a big edge on both labor costs and union obligations, in turn providing them with their own unfair advantage over foreign competitors. In the looming public-relations fight over unfair trade, China can and should raise this issue. The U.S. has actually already teed up this argument for them. According to the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR)’s latest “Report to Congress on China’s WTO Compliance,” it is apparently “of great concern” to the U.S. government that “China does not adhere to certain internationally recognized labor standards, including the freedom of association and the right to bargain collectively.” Elsewhere, the Congressional Executive Commission on China states in its latest audit that China imposes “restrictions on workers’ rights to freely establish and join independent trade unions” and that Chinese workers’ “rights to collective bargaining remain limited in law and in practice.” While it’s true Chinese workers can only organize under its monolithic All-China Federation of Trade Unions, such pro-labor sentiments might seem rich coming from the source. U.S. unionization rights have been “limited” for decades, due in large part to the constant supply of migrant labor both legal and not flowing into America’s mostly blue-collar labor markets. This, of course, also applies to heavy users of “skilled” guest workers like the IT industry. Today, whole sectors of U.S. industry, including big exporters to China like the agricultural and meatpacking industries, have workforces which are close to half illegal immigrants, not just legal ones. This allows exporters reliant on this labor to operate with artificially low costs and artificially high profits...

Attorney General Barr Rails Against Activist 
Judges Blocking Trump’s Agenda
by Shawn

fixthisnation.com } ~ In a speech at the American Law Institute on Tuesday, Attorney General William Barr said that district courts should not be able to overrule the American people with nationwide injunctions...
 against the agenda of the President. Noting that federal judges have now issued nearly 40 national injunctions against Trump, Barr said it was an unprecedented example of just how powerful the Judicial Branch had become. “One judge can, in effect, cancel the policy with the stroke of a pen,” Barr lamented. “No official  in the United States government can exercise that kind of nationwide power, with the sole exception of the President. And the Constitution subjects him to nationwide election, among other constitutional checks, as a prerequisite to wielding that power.” To highlight how extreme the problem has become in the Trump era, he drew a comparison between the president and his predecessor. “Since President Trump took office, federal district courts have issued 37 nationwide injunctions against the Executive Branch,” Barr said. “That’s more than one a month. By comparison, during President scumbag/liar-nObama’s first two years, district courts issued two nationwide injunctions against the Executive Branch, both of which were vacated by the Ninth Circuit.” But, he said, even that startling statistic didn’t tell the whole story. It is not until you realize that in the whole of the 20th century, federal judges issued only 27 nationwide injunctions that you can fully appreciate how biased the courts are against President Trump. “Some say this proves that the Trump administration is lawless,” Barr acknowledged. “Not surprisingly, I disagree.”...

Never Forgotten
Roger Helle:  It was just one of many routine patrols in Vietnam that night. The 13-man Marine squad made their way through the village silently. The point man paused now and then to listen for any unusual sounds before continuing down the trail. They arrived at the edge of the village and began the nearly two-mile hike across open rice paddies toward their destination — a small fishing village on a tributary of the Perfume River just south of Hue, the Imperial City of South Vietnam.

It was a moonless night as they approached the village where the Viet Cong were believed to be gathering. As the squad entered the village, the stillness of the night was broken when the jungle tree line erupted in automatic-weapons fire. At the same time, a “daisy chain” of mines exploded, throwing three Marines at the end of the squad like rag dolls into the rice paddy.

When the firing stopped, stillness fell upon the trail and, like ghosts, the Viet Cong emerged from the jungle, moving quickly among the bodies of the dead or dying Marines, taking their weapons and equipment and disappearing into the night. The three Marines blown off the trail slowly regained their senses, two of whom had taken the brunt of the explosions. Shock gave way to pain and they began moaning. One 18-year-old Marine had somehow been spared and was only dazed by the force of the explosion. He called for the reaction force that was always on standby at the nearby base of Phu Bai.

After what seemed like hours but was less than 30 minutes, a helicopter landed a platoon of Marines who set up a perimeter on the trail. The two wounded men were flown to Da Nang and the third man, just a kid really, was taken back to the base at Phu Bai. The next day, the surviving Marine was told the other two Marines did not make it. It was a guilt he would carry for nearly 23 years.

It was 1989. The young Marine, now 41, stood on the rice paddy dike where his friends had died. With his family and a dozen other Vietnam veterans in over 100-degree heat, they held a memorial service for the fallen whose memory he had carried with him every day for the past 23 years. While the impromptu ceremony was being held, a crowd of villagers quietly gathered around this group of Americans, the first they had seen since the end of the war in 1975.

An elderly woman carrying a little girl came and stood next to the Marine. Through an interpreter, he told the local villagers that his friends had died here and he had come to honor their memory. The older woman walked up to the Marine and laid her head against his chest and wept. She too had suffered loss during the war, so they cried together.

Today, I am 71, but the memory of Vietnam is with me forever. I still remember Vietnam, but by God’s grace, He has taken away the pain I once had from those memories. What I do remember is the brave men I fought alongside and the love they had for their country.

A favorite saying I saw all over during my tours in Vietnam was, “To those who fought for it, freedom has a flavor that the protected will never know.”

Memorial Day is not about mattress sales, cookouts, discounted linens, or an extra day off work. It is a day to pause and remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to defend the freedoms that America has unlike any other nation on the face of the earth. They earned your remembrance, because freedom has a price tag!

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
