    Washington Post ^ | November 30 | Enrique Acevedo
    Among the most pressing questions looming over him are how willing he would be to pay a political price to make hard decisions and whether he will respect the country’s institutions that could try to rein him in. AMLO is promising a “fourth transformation” inspired by three previous political, economic and social disruptions credited with changing the course of Mexican history. His sweeping victory in July earned him the soaring clout most politicians can only dream of. His newly formed Morena party took both the House of Deputies and the Senate, giving him the ability to pass budgets, modify laws...

    ...author Jeff Guinn, who wrote the 2017 book The Road to Jonestown. ...Guinn expressed some regret that the Jonestown massacre has become such a ubiquitous reference point, inspiring such oft-heard phrases as, “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.” “First of all, it wasn’t Kool-Aid,” he notes. “And second, let’s face what the connotation is; it’s used to mean, ‘Don’t be a mindless zombie who just automatically follows orders from an obviously demented leader.’... ...We spoke with Guinn about the details that are often left out when Jonestown is discussed, and what parallels he sees between Jim Jones and a leader like Donald...

    Former CIA Director John Brenna announced his support for Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is battling Sen. Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race. He wrote: “As a former resident of Texas and a proud UT-Austin alumnus, I believe Beto O’Rourke is the type of individual Texans need in the U.S. Senate to represent their best interests. He has the integrity, intellect, and character that is in short supply in Congress. Vote!” The tweet brought a quick blast from Cruz on Twitter, who responded: “John Brennan — who publicly admitted voting for the Communist Party candidate for president in 1976...
  • “Keep your Marxist hands off Gritty”: WSJ writer fumes over allegations that a mascot is antifa

    Gritty, the bright orange, furry, 7-foot creature of Philadelphian origin, is no longer a simple mascot for a hockey team: Antifa activists have co-opted him as their own. In fact, they so effectively claimed Gritty as a working-class, leftist icon that the Wall Street Journal was forced to publish an anguished op-ed Monday demanding that these people keep their “Marxist hands off Gritty.” “The same leftists who want statues of Thomas Jefferson removed are now petitioning for Gritty to replace Mayor Frank Rizzo on a downtown mural,” Jillian Kay Melchior said in the Wall Street Journal op-ed. “Gritty belongs to...

    American politician Joseph McCarthy, Republican senator from Wisconsin, testifies against the US Army during the Army-McCarthy hearings, Washington, DC, June 9, 1954. (Getty Images) An open letter to Brent Bozell, Tucker Carlson, Sen. John Cornyn, Jerome Corsi, Joseph diGenova, Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mh itcMcConnell, Bill O’Reilly, President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and all other conservatives who still decry “McCarthyism”: How about reconsidering the origins of “McCarthyism” and understanding them for what they are—the very seeds of our Marxian destruction and collective shambles? To set the scene, imagine that post-World War II period, when Americans were still trying to...

Many are saying the performance depicted students dressed as doctors and nurses holding SWAT team members at gunpoint. Two Brookhaven police officers were killed in the line of duty responding to a shots fired call last week.

    U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) sent a letter to Bank of the West President and Chief Executive Officer Nandita Bakhshi pushing back on the bank’s decision to no longer conduct business with companies engaged in the exploration and production of coal, oil and natural gas. Bank of the West, headquartered in San Francisco, CA, has 23 branches with dedicated employees who work hard to serve communities and families across Wyoming. In his letter, Barrasso condemned the San Francisco headquarter’s attack on Wyoming’s communities and businesses that depend on fossil fuels for energy security, jobs and economic growth. “This misguided and...

    A new opinion piece in a Texas State University student newspaper tells white students “Your DNA is an Abomination.” “When I think of all the white people I have ever encountered - whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friend, police officers, et cetera - there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student author Rudy Martinez writes in the University Star. Without much biological explanation, Martinez informs white readers, “You were not born white. You became white… You don’t give a damn.” Later in his rant, he calls the police “fascist foot soldiers” and says a “white supremacist...

    An op-ed in a Texas State University student newspaper Tuesday has sparked controversy for its blatant anti-white racism, according to the Washington Examiner. In "Your DNA is an Abomination," which seems to have been pulled from the pages of the University Star, philosophy student and self-proclaimed Marxist atheist Rudy Martinez begins by declaring that of all the white people he has ever encountered, "there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider 'decent.'" He went on to blather that "whiteness in the United States" is a "construct used to perpetuate a system of racist power" and that whites benefit from...

    Big Governor is watching you. Facial-recognition cameras at bridge and tunnel toll plazas across the city are already scanning drivers’ visages and feeding them into databases to catch suspected criminals, Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed Friday. “When it reads that license plate, it reads it for scofflaws . . . [but] the toll is almost the least significant contribution that this electronic equipment can actually perform,” Cuomo said at a press conference outside the Queens Midtown Tunnel. “We are now moving to facial-recognition technology, which takes it to a whole new level, where it can see the face of the person in the...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the darndest things. Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally...

    NBA legend Oscar Robertson has one question as he looks out at the recent collision of politics and sports: “Where are the white players?” Robertson, “The Big O,” was honored with the league’s lifetime achievement award at the NBA Awards banquet Monday night in California. During his remarks on stage, he spoke about the need to “be persistent, or as I’ve been called, stubborn. Stubborn about what you believe in.”

    A Richmond, Virginia, elementary school will switch its name from that of a Confederate general to that of the nation's first black President. On Monday, the Richmond school board voted to rename J.E.B. Stuart Elementary as Barack Obama Elementary School. Members of the school's community submitted ideas for a new name and students at the Richmond school, which is 95% African-American, voted among seven choices. The top three finalists were: Barack Obama, Northside and Wishtree. Last year, a school board in Mississippi dropped the name Jefferson Davis, for the president of the Confederacy, in favor of naming an elementary school...

    Go back to France, Mr. Macron. Take your decidedly UN-AMERICAN visions back home with you. Try to clean up the mess you have in France before you take another shot at the America that is still standing that will not go down without a fight I was so thoroughly disgusted with oligarch Macron’s performance here in America. With his Obama/Trudeau-esque ‘charm’ and lighthearted con-man act, he attempted to work our president like a jukebox. And our own Donald, in his response to that, was nothing but a class act in opening our hospitality and home up - through his heart...

    Many Americans miss having President Barack Obama in the White House, but he doesn’t seem to be one of them. It “is obvious to most people who are watching that he is relieved to no longer be bearing the burden of the presidency,” Josh Earnest, who worked with Obama since his 2008 presidential campaign and served as his press secretary, told The Hill in a report published Monday. “I think there's no doubt that he is more relaxed and more at ease and more unburdened than he's been in a decade, and it shows,” Earnest said. The 44th president has...

    When are the leaders of unsuspecting nations going to realize that if Obama would take down his own country, with no apology or shame that he will try the same thing on theirs? Like the typical Marxist that he truly is under the skin, former President Barack Obama is already diving in to fill the vacuum left behind by Facebook and other social media. Even with all of the advantages stacked on their side, latter day social media is failing at a rate that the masses are noticing. The first thing that Communists, Socialists and Marxists do when companies and...

    The conversation has become predictable. A friendly acquaintance — a neighbor, a fellow parent, our real estate agent — asks about my work. I say I’ve been writing a book about the pope, and the acquaintance smiles and nods and says “Isn’t he so wonderful?” or, “That must be an inspiring thing,” or, “I have a friend who would love to read it.” And then eventually I find myself saying, uncomfortably, “Well, they should know that it’s not entirely favorable.”
