    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 14 Aug, 2017 | Joe Schoffstall
    Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has sent $800,000 from her campaign funds to her new political action group, Federal Election Commission filings show. Clinton announced her intent to be "part of the resistance" in May with the formation of Onward Together, a political action group that will fund a number of established "resistance" groups that can quickly counter President Trump with direct action and protests. The group is dedicated to "encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office" and advancing "progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come," according to its mission...

    What’s most successful when it appears to be something it’s not? Astroturf. As in fake grassroots.The many ways that corporations, special interests and political interests of all stripes exploit media and the Internet to perpetuate astroturf is ever-expanding. Surreptitious astroturf methods are now more important to these interests than traditional lobbying of Congress. There’s an entire PR industry built around it in Washington.Below are the top ten astroturfers as viewed by respondents in an informal, non-scientific survey.* TOP 10 ASTROTURFERS 1.

    Calls to respond violently to supposed police-repression is reaching a fevered-pitch in the St. Louis and Ferguson areas. Just a few days ago, a Ferguson protest leader promised to take "anger" and "rage" out on innocents. Tonight, supporters of the protesters in Ferguson are calling for violence, particularly against people who are not African American. On social media sites, protesters are pushing an agenda of violence. During a live video on ustream yesterday, members called for their "brothers" to "break some cracker skulls:" On video, protesters scream that they're praying for the death of the police, and threaten them with...
  • Why is Romney being supported by the Global Warming Crowd?

    How depressing. Conservatives remain divided this election cycle while the most liberal candidate for the GOP nomination in decades continues to pile up delegates. Meanwhile, the evidence continues to mount that Romney will govern to the left of George Bush – either one. Romney’s effort to portray himself as a conservative has had great success, primarily due to a black out on Romney’s record not only by the mainstream press but also by much of the conservative media. Moreover, much of America’s conservative “leadership” has decided to give Romney a pass. I posted a piece here a few weeks ago...

    The Washington Times ^ | October 14, 2011 | Matthew Vadum
    Abraham Lincoln rightly denounced the “mobocratic spirit.” James Madison considered it the sa- cred duty of government to protect property rights from the violent whims of the mob: “That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest.” Lincoln and Madison would not have looked kindly upon the pro-redistributionist political street theater under way in urine- and garbage-saturated urban parks across the nation. In an insult to the...

    The “October 2011” movement organizer Dennis Trainor tells me that he believes capitalism is “homicidal” and that the U.S. needs a revolution. “This is not a reform movement,” he said. He is part of the illegal occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. The “October 2011” movement is not part of, but endorses the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began several weeks ago. Although he describes himself as new to professional agitation, Trainor runs the “No Cure For That” website and served as a writer/media consultant for Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 presidential campaign. Kucinich is the Cleveland Democrat perhaps best known...

    ACORN has erected an elaborate web of front organizations that allow it to hide its influence and reach. I did a quick search of the internet using the New Orleans address of ACORN. Guess what I found? Almost three hundred organizations connected to ACORN. Well, I would like you to look at the following list of ACORN related organizations that share the same address as ACORN. TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY FOUR names. Got that? This is a tangled web that defies the ability of any one person or organization to figure out who is working for whom. Carnival workers use...

    George Soros told a carefully vetted gathering of 70 likeminded millionaires and billionaires last weekend that they must be patient if they want to realize long-term political and ideological yields from an expected massive investment in “startup” progressive think tanks. The Scottsdale, Ariz., meeting, called to start the process of building an ideas production line for liberal politicians, began what organizers hope will be a long dialogue with the “partners,” many from the high-tech industry. Participants have begun to refer to themselves as the Phoenix Group. Rob Stein, a veteran of President Bill Clinton’s Commerce Department and of New York...

    DALLAS -- A Muslim charity that was shut down after federal authorities accused it of being a financial arm of terrorists faces charges of conspiracy, dealing with terrorists and money laundering, according to a federal indictment unsealed Tuesday. The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, its executive director, its chairman and five other men were named in the 42-count indictment. Attorney General John Ashcroft and senior FBI officials planned a news conference later Tuesday in Washington to discuss details of the indictment. Holy Land, which claims to be the largest U.S. Muslim charity, has been shut down since about...

    View From The Left: Peace KooksBy Michelle GoldbergSalon.com | October 17, 2002 On Oct. 6, an antiwar movement seemed to have blossomed in New York. A sea of people -- newspaper estimates ran from 10,000 to 20,000 -- filled Central Park's East Meadow to protest a possible U.S. invasion of Iraq. And yes, there were the usual suspects, like the girl from the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade who donned a kaffiyeh and hurled red-faced imprecations against capitalist tyranny. But there were many more average people, the kind who don't usually spend their sunny Sunday afternoons demonstrating against government policy --...

In Cleveland and four other dioceses, priests have filed defamation lawsuits against their accusers. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, known as SNAP, calls it a "brutal legal tactic" that will discourage other victims from coming forward. SNAP wants Bishop Wilton Gregory, head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, to end the...

    Federal agents raided more than a dozen homes and an Islamic institute in suburban Washington on March 20 as part of a continued sweep of organizations suspected of funding international terrorism. The raids were carried out by the U.S. Customs Service as part of the Treasury Department's "Operation Green Quest" to dry up terrorist finances. They targeted Muslim charitable foundations linked to extremist groups in the Middle East that financed political-influence operations in the nation's capital. Officials tell Insight some $1.7 billion was funneled through those organizations in recent years. Instead of helping the FBI, Customs Service and other federal...
