Most of us thought that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was safe from allegations once he was confirmed and sworn in to office nearly a year ago.

We were wrong.

On Saturday, September 14, 2019, a New York Times article raised the allegations from 2018 once more, calling for Justice Kavanaugh’s impeachment.

The paper invited the two authors of a book about the Kavanaugh accusations, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, to write a column about them. Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly wrote the book and the article. Part of the article (paywall) has to do with one of last year’s accusers Deborah Ramirez and a classmate, Max Stier, who are said to have witnessed Kavanaugh, a university freshman, at a dorm party. Breitbart has the excerpt of the supposed episode.

Those familiar with Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly’s book have said one must read it until the end to find this gem:

… critics pointed out: “Not only does the alleged victim not confirm the story, she is reported to be denying it.”

Nevertheless, Democrats have been on the attack, including presidential candidate and US Senator, Kamala Harris, from California:

Breitbart‘s article states:

Harris did not mention, or did not know, that the authors’ own book refutes the allegation, which the alleged victim reportedly does not recall. The accuser [Max Stier] — not the victim — also represented Bill Clinton during his impeachment …

During Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Harris — who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee — was criticized for tweeting a deceptively edited video that made it appear as though he argued against women’s access to birth control.

Some Twitter users, including a co-author of a book on the subject, remember this story from an article in the New Yorker at the time and how it collapsed under scrutiny:

The story of Christine Blasey Ford, the most memorable of Kavanaugh’s accusers, was also resurrected — but earlier, around September 8, before the NYT article appeared.

Here’s the short version:

On September 8, Newsweek reported, in part:

A video circulating on social media shows Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney telling attendees at a feminist conference that her client’s testimony against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a politically motivated move to protect Roe v. Wade.

Conservatives are railing against comments attorney Debra Katz made in April in her keynote address at the University of Baltimore’s Feminist Legal Theory Conference regarding Kavanaugh’s controversial Supreme Court confirmation process. Katz represented Ford, who testified at a public hearing and accused Trump’s nominee, at the time a U.S. Court of Appeals judge, of sexually assaulting her 36 years prior while the two were in high school. Katz’s comments at the conference appeared to confirm many conservatives’ accusations that Ford’s testimony was intended in part to protect the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that established abortion access as a constitutional right.

Speaking on the theme of “Applied Feminism and #MeToo” earlier this year, Katz told attendees: “In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court.”

The self-proclaimed “women’s rights and social justice activist” continued: “We were going to have a conservative [justice] … Elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important; it is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine.”

American Lawyer Magazine reporter Ryan Lovelace authored a book released last week entitled, Search and Destroy: Inside the Campaign against Brett Kavanaugh, portraying Katz as a partisan, politically-motivated feminist who encouraged Ford to smear Kavanaugh.

Another Democrat candidate for president, Amy Klobuchar, US Senator for Minnesota, tweeted her support for Blasey Ford:

Yet, one of Blasey Ford’s oldest friends doubted the veracity of the accusation against Kavanaugh.

This is also in Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly’s book. They were the ones who wrote the recent NYT article.

On Sunday, September 15, The Federalist‘s Mollie Hemingway tweeted:

Interestingly, that same day, the NYT issued a correction to their article. One wonders how many people saw the correction and how many millions more spent time at the weekend listening or reading extensive coverage of the efforts to impeach Kavanaugh:

The correction states:

Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)

Something must be done about the media in general:

This scurrilous tactic of smearing Kavanaugh again and again, now with the goal of impeaching him, could backfire on Dems in 2020.

This is what a sampling of Americans said on Twitter:

One had a message for Kamala Harris:

So why are these accusations and calls for impeachment being raised now?

Here is another reason why. The Senate is appointing dozens of Trump nominees to US federal courts:

Citizen journalist Tracy Beanz, gives us the perspective of another citizen journalist, Harold Finch. The following thread explains that the Democrats are afraid of losing more of their cases in the higher courts. In retaliation, the Dems could try to discredit decisions from those courts — including the Supreme Court — and ignore them. Dangerous:

There it is — plain as day.

This is just one more reason NOT to vote for Democrats in 2020.

September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day in the United States.

Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris would like to see this great American food innovation banned:

Absolutely!

Before we celebrate, however, Kamala Harris is embarrassed to say she enjoys a cheeseburger. However, she is NOT embarrassed to say she smoked dope!

Compare and contrast:

Okay, that’s enough Kamala Harris for one day.

Let’s return now to the glorious cheeseburger.

When I was in school, the nuns teaching science class told us that, once we leave home, we might not always have the time or money for a nutritious meal. How right they were. They advised us to choose pizza first, if possible. It has a better combination of the four food groups, because there are vegetables. In second place was the cheeseburger, for the meat and dairy combination.

What sensible person can resist this?

Don’t forget the straw:

Sadly, Theresa May’s government banned the plastic straw. They will no longer be on sale come March 2020. That’s from Conservative Party MPs! But I digress.

Let us further celebrate the cheeseburger:

Mark your diary for September 18 …

… and enjoy!

On September 5, I posted ‘Today’s Democrats aren’t those your grandparents admired’.

One of my readers, H E, has given me permission to repost his comment, which is worthy of its own entry:

Very good writeup about the current ideology and tactics of the Democrat party. The Democrat party has been taken over completely by Marxist radicals, now calling themselves “Progressives” . The party is a monolith, there are no “Conservative Democrats” or “Centrist Democrats” represented in it. As you said, the current Democrat Party is not the party of Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy.

As a 62 year old American, I can look back and see that many of the actions of the today’s “Progressives” are not new, they go back 50 years to the late 1960s. At that time, radical groups such as the Students for a Democratic Society and the Black Panthers murdered policemen and blew up government buildings. But back then, there were countervailing forces in society that pushed back against the radicals and stopped them. In response, the radicals changed tactics. They infiltrated society in order to gain control of the levers of power and to neutralize any entities that might oppose them. Today we can see that they have mostly succeeded in this regard: the administrative and judicial branches of government are dominated by radicals, and the mass media, academia, mainstream religious organizations, and labor unions now serve the Progressive agenda.

In response to the Trump presidency, Progressives have dropped their façade and come into the open about their policies and goals.

One can no longer deny the following facts about American society:

-There is an entity which can be referred to as the Deep State comprised of unelected government officials, businessmen, and military officials who secretly manipulate and direct national policy in accords with the Progressive agenda.

-The Democrat Party is the political arm of the Deep State.

-There is little effective difference in the agendas of the establishment Democrat and Republican parties. Both parties serve the interests of the Deep State.

-The mass media is the propaganda arm of the Deep State. Its purpose is to broadcast the Deep State’s narrative of events and to shut down public discussions that go against the narrative.

-Academia and the education bureaucracy indoctrinate the youth into the values of the Deep State.

I could not agree more.

I am close to H E’s age and clearly remember the notional Progressives’ antics from 50 years ago. Who could have imagined that they would be at the forefront of American politics today with even more madness?

The one element I would add to this list is the infiltration of the Church by these people. That started over a century ago in the US with Walter Rauschenbusch’s social gospel and continued in the 20th century with the Communist Party’s ‘honeyed words to the church people’.

Decades earlier, in 1840, an Italian Jesuit coined the term ‘social justice’. In the 20th century and today, using Antonio Gramsci’s passive revolution tactics, a number of theologians and professors, such as the late Joseph Buttigieg — Democrat candidate Pete Buttigieg’s father — pushed for ‘social justice’ and ‘change’ in the Catholic Church.

There were secret agents in the clergy, too, in the decades preceding Vatican II.

Today, many Democrats — Catholic and Protestant — are working to help illegals via church agencies. Even the Salvation Army is at it, intimidating an Epoch Times reporter who was at the border earlier this year.

The Democrats are bad news.

A lot of Americans vote Democrat because their families have done so for generations.

A lot of Christians also vote Democrat because a) for Catholics, it was known as ‘the party of the Church’ and b) others, today, view Dems as kind people concerned about the downtrodden.

Below are three reasons why American voters should think again about voting for Democrat candidates.

New DNC resolution

At the end of August 2019, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) adopted a party resolution: ‘Resolution Regarding the Religiously Unaffiliated Demographic’.

An excerpt follows, emphases mine:

WHEREAS, the nonreligious have often been subjected to unfair bias and exclusion in American society, particularly in the areas of politics and policymaking where assumptions of religiosity have long predominated; and

WHEREAS, those most loudly claiming that morals, values, and patriotism must be defined by their particular religious views have used those religious views, with misplaced claims of “religious liberty,” to justify public policy that has threatened the civil rights and liberties of many Americans, including but not limited to the LGBT community, women, and ethnic and religious/nonreligious minorities; and

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party is an inclusive organization that recognizes that morals, values, and patriotism are not unique to any particular religion, and are not necessarily reliant on having a religious worldview at all; and

WHEREAS, nonreligious Americans made up 17% of the electorate in 2018 and have the potential to deliver millions more votes for Democrats in 2020 with targeted outreach to further increase turnout of nonreligious voters …

What nonsense.

Americans, whether religious or not, are more pluralistic at any time since the US was founded. I personally know average families who have embraced gay sons and daughters. Others have welcomed marriages of their children with those of another faith or race.

Therefore, there seems no good reason to adopt this sort of resolution.

The Stream has an article about it: ‘Democratic Party Passes Resolution Against Christianity’.

The author, Tom Gilson, a senior editor of The Stream and author of books on Christianity and modern day living, raises important points about this move. Excerpts follow:

The key paragraph:

Those most loudly claiming that morals, values, and patriotism must be defined by their particular religious views have used those religious views, with misplaced claims of “religious liberty,” to justify public policy that has threatened the civil rights and liberties of many Americans, including but not limited to the LGBT community, women, and ethnic and religious/nonreligious minorities …

The party’s hostility toward Christian beliefs and values was clear enough before. Putting it on paper this way, however, raises the message to another level.

The Democrats want to see Christians on the defense. And they’re good at putting us there. They have special skill with scare words. Even the simple word “particular” makes us look small, small-minded, and off in an intellectual corner somewhere. Of course none of that is true.

They put “religious liberty” in scare quotes, as if the concept of it weren’t in all America’s founding conversations, and in the first paragraph of the Bill of Rights. They speak, too, of “civil rights,” “liberties,” and “minorities.” America has sacralized these words, hardly ever stopping to ask when they apply, and when they’re nice-sounding words that don’t belong where they’re being used.

And there’s no simple response to this. That’s not because the answer is unclear, but because so much needs explaining to get it across. We live in different worlds, as it were. When a party takes aim at the Western world’s moral foundation, it’s no longer making mere political statements. This is a worldview statement.

In the Democrats’ world, “civil rights” are no longer endowed by our creator. They’re human products, human inventions. Gay marriage is example number one: It became a right when five Supreme Court justices said it was …

Christianity gets criticized for aligning with the Republican Party. I’m not comfortable with that myself. There’s great danger in tying ourselves to any political group. But what choice do Democrats leave us now? There are only two major parties. One of them has made its stand. It’s against us. We can’t vote Democrat and hold to our Christian values and beliefs.

Let me repeat that: We can’t vote Democrat and hold to our Christian values and beliefs. That doesn’t mean we have to agree with everything our president does. It doesn’t even mean we have to be Republicans. But for all the options seemingly open to Christians, one of them is shut tight, at least for now — by Democrats’ own decision.

Abuse of Trump donors and supporters

On August 5, Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), released a list of prominent Trump donors in the San Antonio area.

On August 10, Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican Party, responded:

One month later, the tweet is still up.

No, Ronna, Democrats will never be forced to condemn such a heinous move. However, if Republicans did such an unthinkable thing, it would be all over the news 24/7 for months.

On August 10, MSNBC featured a discussion between host and guest about physically harming Trump supporters:

Trending Politics covered the discussion, which concerned a Trump donor’s fundraiser as well as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s harassment outside of his home while he was recovering from a recent injury. Language alert below:

On Thursday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes agreed with a guest on his show, Elie Mystal who said that Trump donors should be met with pitchforks and torches.

“People of color are already targets under this administration,” Elie Mystal said to Hayes. “I have no problem with shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate. I go farther, I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons.”

“I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice, but there’s no reason why it has to be,” he added. “There’s no reason why he should be having his nice, little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood that they reject this stuff.”

Mystal’s comments were directed towards billionaire Stephen Ross who recently held a fundraiser for President Trump’s re-election campaign.

“Totally,” Hayes agreed. “There have been peaceful protests outside [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell’s house and I imagine there will be peaceful protests outside [Ross’s house]. Again, it’s all speech.”

The protests outside of McConnell’s house were anything but peaceful. The demonstrations were caught on camera shouting death threats. One liberal even screamed “just stab the motherfucker in the heart.”

“Trump is a bigoted demagogue and we all kind of know that. These people should be ashamed of supporting him. Right? Like, at this point you should basically only be able to contribute to the Trump campaign with bitcoin,” Mystal stated. “But Equinox man is holding an ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ party and he’s surprised the people are getting up in his grill.”

Here’s the video in full:

Can you imagine if Republicans had a conversation like that on Fox News? MSNBC would be dissecting it until Election Day next year.

Do Democrats honestly think that such extremist talk will make Trump supporters falter? Why on earth would Trump supporters want to even vote Democrat after such views were aired?

This is but one example of the hate Democrats have for Trump supporters. Here’s another, from the New York Post on September 1:

Witness Hollywood’s new ­McCarthyism. “Will & Grace” stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack could just have boycotted a fundraiser for President Trump next month if they don’t like Republicans.

But that’s not enough for the Tolerance Taliban. They want the names of anyone who does show up at the fundraiser so they can be blacklisted.

“Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know,” Messing tweeted Friday in response to a Hollywood Reporter story about the Emmy-week function.

McCormack piled on, “Kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

It’s sinister that high-profile entertainers could harbor such illiberal instincts and have no shame about displaying them for all to see. But the most damage they do is to their own credibility.

I hope the reporter is correct about the credibility angle. Personally, I am less optimistic.

Number of illegals higher than estimated

Recently, Tucker Carlson discussed a Yale University study that says the number of illegals in the United States is likely to be closer to 22 million than the oft repeated 11 million figure.

Please take one minute out of your day to watch this. It has subtitles, so there’s no need for sound:

Carlson says that the Dems are soft on illegals, because they want all of them to be able to vote in 2020.

He is not wrong. The Motor Voter programmes run in various states practically guarantee that illegals are registered when they apply for driving licences.

Democrats want to go further now and are pressing for all age-appropriate illegals to be able to vote … in a country they, by law, should not even be in.

Such an act would result in millions more added to the voter rolls in overwhelmingly Democrat states as well as in marginal Republican ones.

The higher the population, the more Electoral College votes — and the more Congressional representation — those states receive. Think of California and New York.

Carlson is correct in saying that the Democrats are using this tactic not because they have any particular feeling for illegals but rather to get the votes they need to stay in power for years to come.

Imagine if there were never another Republican president. Some might cheer at that, but once one party is in power for years and years, corruption is sure to follow, not to mention the strong possibility of totalitarianism.

Conclusion

This man, who is not American, has a warning about the Democrats:

Just in case the lady’s tweet gets deleted, here is his message in full:

I could not agree more with his sense of passion and urgency.

I, too, have come to believe that the United States is in a state of spiritual war.

I pray that America recovers. I also pray that this spiritual war does not spread to other nations. No one can afford its costly consequences.

Actor, producer and author Isaiah Washington recently had a word for Hollywood’s conservative cowards who refuse to come out of the closet politically:

The Epoch Times interviewed Washington recently (video at link), describing his career to date as follows:

an actor and producer who started his career in Hollywood in a number of Spike Lee films. He is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Preston Burke in television show Grey’s Anatomy. More recently, he starred in the science fiction TV series The 100.

However, although the actor supports Donald Trump, he is at odds with the way black Americans have been urged to leave the Democrats:

It seems to work for some blacks but not for others. Pro-Trump people need another angle or two. One size does not necessarily fit all.

The Republican Party in California should be encouraging other minorities, too, who disagree with the physical filth and disease permeating cities and suburbs in that state:

Washington delves into American history in order to better analyse the Democrats:

He is also critical of Hollywood:

Incidentally, an executive with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) was arrested on August 23:

I’m delighted that Isaiah Washington and many other blacks have decided the Democrats are no longer for them.

I hope he can persuade more Hollywood conservatives to out themselves politically.

Within a few weeks’ time, I reckon the media and others on the Left will be telling citizens who want answers about Jeffrey Epstein’s death on August 10, 2019, that there’s nothing to see, move along.

Epstein’s death came one day after 2,000 pages of court documents about his involvement in underage sex were released to the public:

Epstein’s death has attracted Americans on both sides of the political aisle who want answers. The Left think that President Trump is covering up his involvement in nefarious activities, even though testimony from Virginia Roberts Giuffre says that Trump is not implicated. Those on the Right say that they want to find out more about Bill Clinton’s association with Epstein.

By Sunday, August 11, Twitter was already at work manipulating the narrative:

Unanswered questions

Yes, it’s early days, but, as I write on Sunday, even the initial news releases cannot give the facts.

At least one news outlet reported that Epstein hanged himself in his cell.

Another said that he died of cardiac arrest connected to suicide.

Of course, he is not the first to die mysteriously before giving testimony to a court of law in the United States. Others, interestingly, also associated with the Clintons have, too.

However, Epstein was in a place where high profile prisoners were detained without incident, some for long periods of time:

But was Epstein actually on suicide watch at the time of his death?

Incidentally, I checked the NYT‘s Twitter feed on Sunday. Most were tweets about lifestyle: food, fitted sheets and entertainment. The others covered foreign news. Jeffrey Epstein? Nothing to see here, move along.

After the question about a suicide watch, there is the question of the security camera, allegedly malfunctioning. How convenient:

Then there is the question of the guards for such an important prisoner:

Hmm:

If true, this is very interesting:

Epstein appears to have died in the early hours of the morning:

He was then taken to a Manhattan hospital, where some strange photos emerged. Note that Epstein appears to have no legs in this photo. A blanket is rolled under instead:

A Rod Rosenstein fan — not the man himself — tweeted:

Perhaps this is true:

Whatever the case, Epstein’s lawyer is furious. On August 10, The Gateway Pundit disclosed Marc Fernich’s full statement on his client’s death. A summary follows:

Marc Fernich, an attorney for Jeffrey Epstein, issued a blistering statement on the death of his client by an apparent suicide while in federal custody at the Manhattan Correctional Center in New York City early Saturday morning. Fernich blamed prosecutors, judges, jailers, the media, politicians and “greedy plaintiff’s lawyers” for Epstein’s death, saying they have “blood on their hands.”

Here is the tweet with Fernich’s statement:

Attorney General Bill Barr said he was ‘appalled’ by Epstein’s death and said he would launch an investigation:

Will Bill Barr do the right thing and give us all the facts? I do not know. However, some remain optimistic:

Trump supporters understand that Barr was given permission to declassify documents relating to the notional Russian collusion plot and activities from the previous administration 80+ days ago. To date, we have seen nothing. What is he waiting for? Christmas?

In any event, Judicial Watch, which seems to do all the heavy lifting, says it will also investigate. Judicial Watch obtains documents via the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act):

Those interested in Epstein’s death have come up with two prevaling theories at this time:

1/ Epstein is dead.

2/ Epstein is in Israel or some other safe country, helped, perhaps indirectly, by Mossad.

We can laugh at that second possibility or we can consider that tin foil hattery isn’t as far-fetched now as it was only a few years ago:

Although investigative journalist Sara Carter wrote ‘Two Tiered System Of Justice’ about AG Barr’s investigation of the FBI, her sentiments could be applied equally to his new Jeffrey Epstein investigation (emphases mine):

… so many people were stunned when DOJ attorney General William Barr declined prosecution of Comey for leaking. Sources have told this reporter that the prosecution would be difficult because Comey’s attorney’s could argue he was not grossly negligent – hmmm, I’m not so sure about that and I wonder why the DOJ said anything at all. I have been told that the information being collected by Barr appointed Connecticut Attorney John Durham, will be chilling, stunning and justice will be served. I won’t believe it until I see it. I, like so many others, have become a little jaded over the developments.

I say,” a little” because I haven’t given up all hope. I know America cannot afford to have a two-tiered system of justice and I believe in Barr, for now.

Liberty does not exist in a banana republic, where there is one set of rules for the political elite and another for its citizens. It would be the beginning of the destruction of the foundation our nation was built on: The Constitution.

If we no longer believe in what it says, what will it mean? It will mean nothing and our nation will no longer be that beacon of light for so many around the world that live in unjust societies …

As an American, I’m more than disturbed -I’m sickened – by their uncanny ability to skirt the law and how their friends in high ranking positions are working diligently still to protect them.

I could not agree more.

We all know that Democrats are the voice of the people, right?

I’m being sarcastic, but that is the image they project:

Meanwhile, the once beautiful city of Baltimore, Maryland has been in the news over the past few days. The district’s congressman, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland), has been roundly criticised by residents, Republicans and President Trump for allowing it to deteriorate. He cannot take full blame, but he would do well to focus on his constituents rather than trying to impeach Trump.

This lady is a member of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee:

While the controversy over Baltimore rages …

… Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and selected Democrat congresscritters stayed in Venice — yes, Italy — over the weekend in five-star accommodation at the Hotel Danieli (be sure to click on that link)!

Yes, Pelosi and the Democrats truly are of the people (not):

Over the weekend, various people, including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida), thought that Rep. Elijah Cummings was among Pelosi’s delegation, but he was not:

The Washington Examiner reported (emphasis mine):

Pelosi was joined on the trip to by several other black Democrats, including Majority Whip James Clyburn, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Karen Bass, Rep. Barbara Lee, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Rep. John Lewis.

The Democratic delegation is visiting the U.S. Army Africa headquarters in Italy. They will also visit Ghana, a trip that coincides with the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans landing in America. Pelosi will be the first speaker of House to address the Ghanaian Parliament.

One wonders how much this junket cost and how many family members accompanied them. The mind boggles.

Meanwhile, Baltimore and other Democrat-controlled US cities are in chaos.

Early last week, James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team were victims of censorship with their exposés of Instagram and Google algorithms designed to throttle pro-Trump media:

Around the same time, Reddit’s popular The_Donald was ‘quarantined’, just as the 2020 presidential campaign got underway with the Democrat debates:

Speaking of the Democrat debate, watch the blackout during the broadcast:

President Trump tweeted:

But I digress.

Back now to the main story.

The_Donald has been under attack by the Left since 2016. The subreddit (forum) has been enormously popular in red pilling — providing political wake up calls to — wavering Democrats, especially Bernie Sanders supporters.

Naturally, the Left wants to stop The_Donald.

On June 24, Media Matters got involved, claiming posts advocating violence against police on one of The_Donald’s threads.

Oddly, The_Donald’s true posters — and moderators — are very pro-law enforcement. Could there have been an infiltrator?

In any event, Reddit is loaded with questionable ‘subs’ (subreddits) that actually do advocate violence and, in other areas, aberrancy (to be polite):

Hmm. From the same Twitter account holder only a few weeks ago:

Anyway, the end result was a quarantine for The_Donald:

Among other outlets, Gateway Pundit covered the story in brief.

Not surprisingly, The_Donald’s quarantine has attracted more readers as well as active pushback against Reddit (emphasis in the original):

Hi r/the_donald. Since reddit has banned this subreddit, I have gotten 38 people to create accounts just to subscribe.

I just wanted to say that I don’t agree with what’s happening. No matter your belief, you should have a platform without being silenced. Keep fighting.

Someone replied (emphasis mine):

We’ve added 6500 new subs since this morning by the looks of it. 754k to 760.5k

Splendid!

Some will ask why The_Donald doesn’t go elsewhere. They did set up a site with the same name on Voat, but the Left infiltrated it. Blueshare is affiliated with the aforementioned Media Matters:

We need another platform but thedonald sub at voat never took off and was taken over by antisemitic shills from blueshare.

Another issue is that newer platforms lack the capacity to handle large volumes of traffic. Public awareness of alternative platforms is also not very good. People visit platforms with which they are familiar.

One of Reddit’s moderators contacted The_Donald saying that Reddit wants the forum gone, therefore, readers should not give in or go elsewhere. Click on the image to enlarge:

The key points of the moderator’s message are as follows, taken verbatim:

Here is the thing you need to understand, it’s not enough for them to have a community like this put on the backburner. They want it to not exist. To exist means your ideas permeate, which is too much for them to bear. They don’t want alternatives, even if those alternatives are minority viewpoints. They want only one viewpoint to permeate. Their own.

This is where the_donald comes in. Please do not have this community sperg out and go to voat or gab.ai or whatever else. That’s what the wider reddit community wants to see happen. They want you deplatformed and irrelevant. You need to cherish what you have. This community is likely the largest trump community on the internet. It has to be protected, not segmented.

And for every subscriber this subreddit has, there are probably 10x lurkers that just browse without accounts. This subreddit has an important role to play in 2020. Don’t give the admins an excuse to shut you guys down. Don’t play into their hand.

You need to push back. You need to fight for your place in discourse, and you need to legitimize yourselves by existing and refusing to die. That will be your best revenge.

There are members of the reddit do-it-for-free crowd that are sympathetic to the_donald, but we always have to be quiet or we’ll be kicked off our teams. We are out there though. good luck to you.

I stopped reading The_Donald a few months ago. I’ll be reading it a bit more often now. I hope others will do likewise.

In 2018, the redoubtable Candace Owens started a movement called Blexit, encouraging American blacks to leave the Democrat(ic) Party:

Black People Don’t Have to be Democrats.

The video in the tweet below shows the remnants of the latter years of segregation in the Democrat-controlled South:

Candace Owens has been involved with TurningPointUSA, headed by Charlie Kirk, founded to encourage a libertarian form of conservativism at American colleges and universities.

Through TurningPointUSA, Owens met a young Englishman, George Farmer, who has now launched TurningPointUK with the same objectives in mind at British universities.

TurningPointUK launched officially last week with three events in London, Nottingham and Brighton which took place between March 10 and 13, 2019.

Here’s a short video from February about what the organisation supports:

Owens and Farmer are engaged to be married. On Monday, March 11, they visited the House of Commons as the guests of pre-eminent Brexiteer, Jacob-Rees Mogg (C-North East Somerset).

This is when Blexit met Brexit:

I do hope Candace is right about ‘a free-speech takeover’ in Britain. We sorely need it.

Best wishes for both Blexit and Brexit — two movements I definitely support.

The part of then-candidate Donald Trump’s platform I had the most concerns about in 2016 was a barrier along the southern US border.

Yet, by the end of 2017, I was convinced that something must be built.

However, I had not yet seen the following set of figures from that year, enumerating just how much illegal immigration is costing America, state by state. These are staggering numbers:

The comments in the tweet are illuminating in that many Americans say they are in siege mode: tense, tired, afraid and suspicious.

Others point to the better ways in which such money could be used to improve the lives of American citizens.

Mega-MAGA Young Republican, Scott Presler of Virginia, recently wrote a letter to the editor asking why illegals get better treatment than American citizens. He is not wrong:

Notice that Democrats do not support funding a secure border or a wall. Consequently, not only are the states are paying for illegals’ upkeep, the federal government is, too.

Meanwhile, drugs, gangs and other criminals pour into the United States harming innocent people — law-abiding, tax-paying American citizens and their families. South of the border, amongst the illegal aliens, women and children are subject to trafficking and rape.

How can a Democrat wilfully ignore that?

This absurdity has run its course. President Trump is doing his best to get the wall built and beef up security along the border. Yes, declaring a national emergency for the United States — rather than for a foreign country, for once — was the right thing to do.

Let us pray this situation is resolved, at least partially, by the end of the year.
