  • Braveheart - Solitary Trump Supporter Battered by Phalanx of Shrieking Lefty GOONS in Burlingame

    Trump-supporting mortgage banker born in Burlingame, CA. walks through hundreds of violent, masked, profanity-spewing lefties, totally on his own after a recent Trump speech at the local Hyatt Regency near SFO. The tall, suited, brave professional is repeatedly sworn at, jostled, punched, and kicked as he walks along, defiantly. His red Trump hat is repeatedly torn off his head and stolen by pro-immigration activists and racist anti-racists. This is the most violent Trump-related encounter I have ever seen. I believe this is reliable foreshadowing of what is to come and I think THIS is what the tone will be after...

    BURLINGAME, Calif. — Ted Cruz is speaking confidently about knocking off Donald Trump to take the GOP nomination, but his top staffers admit they’re getting nervous. In interviews, several aides, speaking on the condition of anonymity, expressed growing alarm that Cruz would lose Indiana’s primary on Tuesday — an outcome that would be a major blow to his hopes of holding Trump below the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination on the party convention’s first ballot. The aides concede that, without a win in an Indiana primary where 57 delegates are at stake, Cruz’s shot at the nomination...

    At a rally Thursday night in Orange County, CA, Donald Trump was joined on stage by Jamiel Shaw, whose son was murdered by an illegal alien in 2008, and other members of the Remeberence Project. "They're unbelievable, they've suffered," Trump said before bringing them up on the stage. "These are great people." "We demand Americans first," Shaw said. "We don't care about illegal aliens." The person who murdered his son was an "illegal alien on his third gun charge." "They all have a very similar story to tell," Trump said. "People that shouldn't have been here, people that should have...

    Um... Could you anti-Trump protesters please not display so many Mexican flags when protesting against Trump? You might not realize it but it will only help him in the California primary in June. That is the big worry of the Los Angeles Times in reporting about the protests against Donald Trump yesterday in Costa Mesa. Here is the Times wringing its hands in worry as reported by Ruben Vives and Shelby Grad, about the "unintended consequences" of displaying the Mexican flag which proved counter-productive in the past:

    The protests outside Donald Trump's rally in Costa Mesa on Thursday night appear to point to an upcoming month of activism by Latinos and others as the GOP front-runner tries to seal the presidential nomination in the state. While the billionaire businessman has faced protests elsewhere, California could prove to be potent ground for demonstrators because of its large Latino population and Trump's negative comments about immigrants in this country illegally. A USC/Times poll found that 77% of Latinos in California have a negative view of Trump. Yet among Republicans, Trump is ahead in that poll and several others. Although...

Costa Mesa's Pacific Amphitheater seemed like the perfect venue in a county that's right-wing as hell, no? The city, no stranger to anti-immigrant policy at the local level, had to be a good fit for Trump's "build that wall," Mexi-hating mantra, right? Wrong! Waves of protests rolled out the unwelcome mat for the Donald blocking freeway entrances, taking over an intersection, vandalizing property all while bumping YG and Nipsey Hussle's "FDT (F### Donald Trump)" throughout the day.

    BURLINGAME, Calif. — Donald J. Trump got a taste on Friday of what his next month of campaigning in California could be like. He was forced to exit his motorcade and walk through a field, climbing an embankment with Secret Service agents helping him, to avoid angry demonstrators on the street. “We went under a fence and through a fence, and oh, boy, it felt like I was crossing the border, actually,” Mr. Trump said when he finally made it to a ballroom to speak at California’s Republican Party convention. For the next 25 minutes, though, Mr. Trump spoke little...

Protesters -- some of whom wore bandanas over their faces and carried Mexican flags -- blocked off the road in front of the Hyatt Regency here, forcing the GOP front-runner's motorcade to pull over along a concrete median outside the hotel's back entrance. Trump and his entourage got out and walked into the building. At one point, about two dozen protesters tried to rush barriers near the hotel. Police officers then rushed to the building's doors, successfully...

    The 'Cordoba Initiative' has announced plans to build a $100-million plus mosque overlooking Ground Zero at the World Trade Center. Its leader, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, says it "will serve as the platform to launch a broader vision of Muslim-West harmony and interdependence." As he has made clear, Rauf supports supplementing our Constitution by making sharia law optional -- optional at least for now -- for Muslims living here in America.

On November 2, 2005, Dana Priest of the Washington Post reported that the “CIA has been hiding and interrogating some of its most important al Qaeda captives at a Soviet-era compound in Eastern Europe.” The Post, citing the government’s security concerns, did not name the countries where the facilities were located.

    NEW YORK, DECEMBER 5, 2009 — Several thousand protesters gathered at Foley Square in New York City to rally against Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and 4 other 9/11 co-conspirators as civilians in federal court. Despite bitter cold, strong winds and heavy rain the crowd stayed through the 2-hour rally. The event was organized by the 9/11 Coalition to Never Forget and featured speakers representing 9/11 family members, first responders and our troops.

    The bottom line for the editors at the New York Daily News is this: "[Khalid Sheikh] Mohammed belongs in front of one of the fully constitutional military tribunals created by Congress expressly for the purpose of trying his ilk, rather than being given a propaganda platform that downgrades the notion from an act of war into a crime. If you're appalled by the Ghailani preview, we can guarantee you'll hate the Mohammed feature-length movie even more. So stop it from coming to a theater near you. Join the rally. (I'll only add: the 911NeverForget rally is noon today, in Foley...

    "KSM describes a grandiose original plan ... KSM himself was to land the tenth plane at a U.S. airport and, after killing all adult male passengers on board and alerting the media, deliver a speech excoriating U.S. support for Israel, the Philippines, and repressive governments in the Arab world. Beyond KSM's rationalizations about targeting the U.S. economy, this vision gives a better glimpse of his true ambitions. This is theater, a spectacle of destruction with KSM as the self-cast star -- the superterrorist." -- page 154, 9/11 Commission Report Attorney General Eric Holder wants to fly Khalid Shiekh Mohammed...
  • We must rise up against the trial: It’s time for 9/11 families to fight Holder’s dangerous move

    The attorney general has suggested that those who oppose prosecuting these men here in New York City are afraid – that we somehow don’t have the courage to face Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in court. How dare this man, who didn’t have the decency to notify victims’ families of his decision to bring these monsters here, imply that we lack courage. Courage is carrying on after watching your loved ones die, in real time, knowing that they burned to death, were crushed to death, or jumped from 100 flights high. Courage is carrying on, even as we waited, in some cases...
  • Musicians blast using tunes to torment (artists imitate parody)

    Some of those musicians -- Nine Inch Nails and Rage Against the Machine -- say their music has been played at ear-splitting level to torment terror suspects and coerce confessions at the detention facility. Other petitioners want to know whether their works have been used in such capacity, including R.E.M., Pearl Jam, Jackson Browne and Billy Bragg. "The fact that music I helped create was used in crimes against humanity sickens me," said Tom Morello, former lead guitarist for Rage Against the Machine, an industrial rock band whose song "March of the Pigs" has been linked to torture tactics at...

    KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: Is the Obama administration keeping America safe? DEBRA BURLINGAME: When Barack Obama was sworn in as president, I actually had a sliver of hope that he would surprise his worst critics and govern from the center — the smart pragmatist. That hope pretty much evaporated on January 22 when he signed a series of executive orders shutting the Guantanamo Bay detention center by a date certain and suspending the trial of 9/11 conspirators — who were at that moment sitting at Gitmo, crowing about their role in the murder of 3,000 of our fellow human beings. Surrounded...

    "Keep America Safe will make the case for an unapologetic approach to fighting terrorism around the world, for victory in the wars this country fights, for democracy and human rights, and for a strong American military that is needed in the dangerous world in which we live."

    ... Why had Attorney General Eric Holder decided not to renew his security measures, kept in place since 2002? ... Reid claimed that SAMs violated his First Amendment right of free speech and free exercise of religion. In a hand-written complaint, he asserted that he was being illegally prevented from performing daily “group prayers in a manner prescribed by my religion.” Yet the list of Reid’s potential fellow congregants at ADX Florence reads like a Who’s Who of al Qaeda’s most dangerous members: Ramzi Yousef and his three co-conspirators in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui;...

    Last May at the National Archives, President Barack Obama warned that “more mistakes would occur” if Congress continued to politicize terrorist detention policy and the closure of Guantanamo Bay. “[I]f we refuse to deal with those issues today,” he predicted, “then I guarantee you, they will be an albatross around our efforts to combat terrorism in the future.” On June 17, at the Administrative Maximum (ADX) penitentiary in Florence, Colo., one of those albatrosses, inmate number 24079-038, began his day with a whole new range of possibilities.
