Former president of Mexico insists that illegal invasion will continue whether US wants it or not

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-05-11 01:20

Vincente Fox, right, and Ben Mathis, host of Kickass Politics Podcast. Mathis shared the photo with the message: "Vincente Fox and I have a message for Donald Trump." Why does MSM ignore this?

Vincente Fox was president of Mexico for six years, from 2000 to 2006, as a member of the conservative National Action Party (PAN). He was the first president elected from a party in opposition to the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) since 1910! During his presidency, he stirred up more than the average amount of controversy because of his free-wheeling style.

He's still at it, but now he's openly encouraging Mexicans to force their way into the United States illegally. It's well-known the Mexican government has always encouraged it's people to go and find work in the U.S., though they outwardly deny it or say that US businesses want them to come and it works out to everyone's benefit. Unfortunately, that is partially true. It's also true that it amounts to an occupation of U.S. territory by Mexican nationals and loyalists. But that's another story.

Now Fox has gone even further on a program with “Kickass Politics” on May 10th. As he was haranguing against Donald Trump and his wall, Fox said:

“Don’t play around with us. We can jump walls. We can swim rivers. And we can defend ourselves.”

Ted Cruz signs Senate letter demanding more money for Israel

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2016-04-29 21:26

EIGHTY-THREE OF THE 100 SENATORS, including Ted Cruz (above), have signed a letter demanding that Israel be given more cash than ever before.

The letter—which originated with the American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC), one of the US’s most prominent Jewish lobbies, urges a more “robust” defense package for Israel, and has so far gathered the signatures of 51 Republican and 32 Democrat senators.

The letter, addressed to President Obama, says that, in “light of Israel’s dramatically rising defense challenges, we stand ready to support a substantially enhanced new long-term agreement to help provide Israel the resources it requires to defend itself and preserve its qualitative military edge.”  Equality is not good enough for Israel, it requires a vastly superior military technology in order to hold its own.

Trump: The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2016-04-28 02:42

Donald Trump speaking on foreign policy in his address to the Center for the National Interest in Washington DC on Wednesday.

IN HIS FOREIGN POLICY SPEECH today, Donald Trump made it clear that he really means it when he says he wants to make America great again. Though there was nothing scary in his speech, unless you are a globalist (which many are), the real jewel hidden in his speech came near the end:

We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism. The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down.

And then he said: "And under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs."

Say it isn't so ...

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2016-04-12 01:01

Gov. Kasich, Gov. Walker and Sen. Rubio were mentioned by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump as "people he liked" for his administration.

Breitbart News ran this story on Monday by Alex Swoyer which is really shocking, but they don't seem to recognize it, nor do the commenters (as far as I have read them, not very far). It goes like this:

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump suggested he could put fellow 2016 GOP presidential candidates Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in his administration — possibly even as vice president on his ticket.

“Yes. I like Marco Rubio. Yeah. I could,” Trump told columnist Kirsten Powers about putting Rubio in his administration.

He was asked if Rubio was a potential vice president choice for him.

“There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names. … I do like Marco. I do like [John] Kasich. … I like [Scott] Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard. … But I’ve always liked him. There are people I like, but I don’t think they like me because I have hit them hard,” Trump responded.

Bernie Sanders again plays the 'Holocaust' card in defense of Muslim immigration

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2016-04-04 22:37

By Carolyn Yeager

ON APRIL 2ND IN MILWAUKEE (a city settled by German immigrants), 'Democratic Socialist' presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was berating Republican candidate Donald Trump for calling for a temporary ban on non-US-citizens who are Muslim from entering the USA. Sanders likened Trump to a “lunatic,” after calling him "a nutcase" just a week before.

The Washington Post reported that on Saturday, the Senator from Vermont indicated he was against intolerance toward Muslims, explaining that some of his relatives [allegedly] died “in the Holocaust” because “a lunatic … stirred up racial hatred:”

Sen. Ted Cruz lauds Elie Wiesel as a moral giant in AIPAC speech

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2016-03-22 14:16

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) listens to Elie Wiesel at a Senate roundtable discussion last year. Cruz said the nuclear talks with Iran were reminiscent of Western appeasement of Hitler.

CURRENTLY RUNNING for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, Cruz spoke on Monday, March 21 to the annual American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, Washington's largest lobbying group and an unregistered agent of the Israeli government in the U.S.

His words were described as those he has spoken many times before, but naturally what stood out to me was what he said about Elie Wiesel.

At 13:40 into his speech he said:

A year ago, I was honored to join the great Elie Wiesel on a panel discussion in the Senate about this disastrous Iranian deal. Not a single democrat was willing to join Elie Wiesel … to sit alongside someone who witnessed first hand the horrors of the “Holocaust,” who brings a moral weight and gravity second to none, was both powerful and humbling. And I am convinced, after this election, the American people will stand and say together “Never Againmeans never again. Please continue reading at Elie Wiesel Cons The World

Where is the fact-checking on Bernie Sanders' statements of relatives “wiped out in the Holocaust”?

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-03-09 22:59

Bernie Sanders shakes hands with a supporter. Does he have any idea what he's talking about?

I read today that Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said during the last Democratic Party debate in Michigan that part of his father's family was “wiped out” in the so-called “Holocaust.” The thought  immediately came to me that part of my mother's family was wiped out financially in the Jewish “Wall Street holocaust” called the Great Depression of the 1930s – which, by the way, helped to create world conditions that set the groundwork for the war in Europe that negatively affected Bernie's family and cost the lives of 50 million people … as he said elsewhere. If I were equally as famous as Bernie and mentioned my family's misfortune, people would only be outraged by my impertinence in using the J-word, while Bernie is given bonus points for using the H-word for his family's misfortune.

Just a thought, but could that have had anything to do with his surprise upset victory Tuesday in Michigan?

Mitt Romney is an example of "White Suicide"

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2016-03-03 11:54

Mitt Romney today publicly smeared Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in a speech in his home state of Utah, calling Trump a phoney, a fraud and saying "his promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University." He actually says that Republicans "should shun" Trump for the good of the country and party!

But Romney did not endorse another candidate.

So what is he trying to accomplish? Mitt Romney made his money as a stockbroker, for God's sake. How uplifting is that? Romney also lost twice, first in a primary battle with McCain and 4 years later running against Obama's second term.

Donald Trump: "I am a truth-teller, and I will tell the truth"

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-03-02 14:17

At a very presidential press conference at Mar-a-Lago last night, Donald Trump made some interesting statements that should not get lost in opposition campaign rhetoric.

Asked about his statements on Planned Parenthood - saying that it has done a lot of good for women's health, apart from the abortions which he agrees must be stopped - he said that might not be a perfect conservative view,

"but I am a truth-teller and I will tell the truth."

Wow. This sure stood out for me as a very encouraging statement. I think he is sincere about it, too, and this is exactly why the Republican Establishment (and Democrat too, plus the equivalent groups in Europe and the UK) are so fiercly opposed to his nomination and election as President. The Truth! To them, truth must not be considered  important in the scheme of things because who knows where it will lead?

"We're building a new Republican party."

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2016-02-26 02:45

Isn't this what we've been asking for? A Republican party with a strong White identity -- a party that is strong on border and immigration control?

Looks like Trump is not going to disappoint -- and it looks like he's going to win, too!

He's known for thinking big so we shouldn't be surprised that he sees himself rebuilding the Party. I have no doubt he will succeed.

His words at Thursday night's GOP debate in Houston:

New people are coming into the Republican Party. We are building a new Republican Party, a lot of new people are coming in. 

But I’m telling you also, I’m bringing people, Democrats over and I’m bringing independents over, and we’re building a much bigger, much stronger Republican Party.
