GOP operatives coordinate anti-Trump movement via ad blitz


Fox News reports, Nov. 24, 2015, that as Donald Trump continues to dominate the polls (the latest Fox News poll has Trump with a record 28% support from primary voters), a “prominent GOP operative” and Republican donors with links to several other presidential candidates are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Trump to keep him from winning the nomination.

The “guerrilla campaign” is led by a group called Trump Card LLC and run by Liz Mair, former communications official for the Republican National Committee. Mair was also, briefly (one day), the online communications strategist for Scott Walker’s failed presidential campaign.

Trump Card LLC’s goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from donors to “defeat and destroy” Trump. The donors will be anonymous because Trump Card would not have to disclose donors.

The super PAC supporting the candidacy of Ohio Gov. John Kasich is planning to air attack ads against Trump in New Hampshire. Trump Card LLC is also getting funding from donors backing candidates other than Kasich, including Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Trump Card wants $250,000 from the other GOP presidential campaigns to run anti-Trump TV, radio and web ads and to pitch opposition research to local stations in early-voting states.

In addition to the pro-Kasich and Trump Card groups, the super PAC associated with the fiscal conservative Club for Growth is trying to raise money to resume anti-Trump ads, after running a reported $1 million worth earlier this year in Iowa.

Some in the Republican establishment and GOP “donor class” fear the party will lose the general election if Trump wins the nomination, arguing his comments and views are alienating Hispanic and black voters. Liz Mair wrote in a memo obtained by The Journal:

“In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race. “he stark reality is that unless something dramatic and unconventional is done, Trump will be the Republican nominee and Hillary Clinton will become president.”

The relationship between old guard Republicans and Trump has been rocky from the start. Trump had complained about being treated unfairly by the Republican National Committee and threatened to mount an independent candidacy. But he eventually signed a pledge stating he wouldn’t run as an independent and would support the nominee if he lost.

But after news broke about the concerted effort to undermine him, Trump is hinting he might consider breaking away. He said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week”: “We’ll see what happens. I have to be treated fairly.… If I’m treated fairly, I’m fine.”


40% of young Americans support government censorship of free speech

Freedom of speech is a fundamental tenet of the United States of America, understood by our Founding Fathers as an “unalienable right” given to all human beings (“endowed”) by God (“their Creator”). As stated in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

An alarming percentage of U.S. Millennials, however, as many as 4 out of 10, support government censorship, i.e., abridging the Constitutional right of freedom of speech of anyone who makes public statements “offensive” to “minorities”.

Millennials are those born between 1981 and 1997 who are 18 to 34 years old in 2015.

Jacob Poushter reports for PewResearchCenter, Nov. 20, 2015, that American Millennials are far more likely than older generations to say the government should be able to prevent people from saying offensive statements about minority groups, according to a new analysis of Pew Research Center survey data on free speech and media across the globe.

The poll comes at a time when America’s colleges and universities increasingly restrict free speech, in the name of racial and ethnic equality, “safe zones” and protecting delicate students from “micro-aggression”.

The survey asked people whether they believe that their fellow citizens should be able to make public statements that are offensive to minority groups, or whether the government should be able to prevent people from saying these things.

While Americans as a whole are less likely to favor government censorship of free speech than other countries, U.S. Millennials stood out as the group that most favors censorship. Here are the survey results for Americans:

  • Overall, 28% of Americans are pro-censorship; 67% support free speech.
  • 40% of Millennials are pro-censorship vs. 58% pro-free speech.
  • The elderly (ages 70-87) are most pro-free speech: 80% are for vs. 12% who favor censorship.
  • Women are more pro-censorship (33%) than men (23%).
  • Democrats are more pro-censorship (35%) than Independents (27%) or Republicans (18%).
  • Non-whites are more pro-censorship (38%) than white non-Hispanics (23%).
  • The less educated — those with only a high school education or less — are more pro-censorship (31%) than those with some college (29%) and those with a college degree or more (22%).

2015 Pew Survey on free speech - USA

Here’s how Americans compare with Europeans. No wonder Europe, especially Germany, seems helpless before the tide of Muslim “refugee” invaders.

It appears young Americans are just waiting for a demagogue to mold and mobilize them into a new Hitlerjeugend (Hitler Youth), Communist Youth League, or Maoist Red Guards.

1995 Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was a Muslim sympathizer


The popular image of 1995 Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh is that of a twisted “patriot” out to avenge government actions at Waco and Ruby Ridge. This is what Wikipedia says about McVeigh:

McVeigh, a Persian Gulf War veteran, sought revenge against the federal government for its handling of the Waco Siege, which ended in the deaths of 76 people exactly two years before the bombing, as well as for the Ruby Ridge incident in 1992. McVeigh hoped to inspire a revolt against what he considered to be a tyrannical federal government.

From the beginning, the media had portrayed McVeigh and co-conspirator Terry Nichols as extremist, “right-wing,” Christian nut-cases. Just recently, on ABC’s The View on November 17, co-host Joy Behar called Americans unChristian for objecting to Obama’s program of bringing unvetted Muslim “refugees” to the United States. Behar then implied that Syrian Christian refugees are dangerous because “Timothy McVeigh was a Christian.” (See “Whoopi Goldberg, the woman who named herself after farting, says Christians are just as dangerous as Muslims“)

Joy Behar

Joy Behar

But The Federalist points out that McVeigh wasn’t a Christian — he identified himself as an agnostic. Though raised as a Roman Catholic, McVeigh stated in his 2002 biography American Terrorist that he did not believe in a hell and that science was his religion. In June 2001, a day before the execution, McVeigh wrote a letter to the Buffalo News identifying himself as agnostic.

More than that, McVeigh was a Muslim sympathizer.

In her bestseller, The Third Terrorist, investigative journalist Jayna Davis presents the evidence showing that Timothy McVeigh was a front man for Middle Eastern terrorists, and that a third co-conspirator was an Iraqi — the mysterious “John Doe” who was never found. Davis says the evidence was ignored and dismissed because the Clinton Administration didn’t want to go to war with Iraq, the likely culprit, and wanted to blame the attack on domestic right-wingers for political reasons.  

Roger Aronoff of Accuracy in Media writes:

Davis makes a convincing case that in fact McVeigh “was a handpicked dupe, set up to take the fall in order to save his Islamic collaborators from prosecution.” She documents that he had expressed a desire to be a mercenary for Middle Eastern terrorists, and that the trail of evidence that both he and his accomplice Terry Nichols left behind points in the direction of an Arab/Muslim connection to the attack.

In her book, Davis details sworn affidavits from very credible witnesses who link McVeigh and Nichols to former Iraqi soldiers in the U.S. who were anti-American infiltrators wanting revenge on America’s Middle East policy. For that, Davis said she was called a racist:

“I’m an NBC affiliated reporter, I was from the mainstream media, but I was branded a racist, and politically incorrect, because I was pursuing legitimate leads and evidence that led to foreign involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing,” she said. “So by virtue of securing his [1996] White House bid by blaming right-wing rhetoric for inciting Timothy McVeigh, Bill Clinton was able to seal the case. That was it. It was domestic, home-grown terrorism. And now, fifteen years later, he comes out with the temerity and absolute audacity to try to compare these Tea Party conservatives with [McVeigh] a bloodthirsty terrorist. I mean, nothing could be further from the truth. “

In a 1,200-word essay dated March 1998, from the federal maximum-security prison at Florence, Colorado, McVeigh claimed that the Oklahoma City bombing was “morally equivalent” to U.S. military actions against Iraq and other foreign countries. The essay marked the first time that McVeigh publicly discussed the Oklahoma City bombing. He wrote:

The administration has said that Iraq has no right to stockpile chemical or biological weapons (“weapons of mass destruction”) — mainly because they have used them in the past.

Well, if that’s the standard by which these matters are decided, then the U.S. is the nation that set the precedent. The U.S. has stockpiled these same weapons (and more) for over 40 years….

Remember Dresden? How about Hanoi? Tripoli? Baghdad? What about the big ones — Hiroshima and Nagasaki? (At these two locations, the U.S. killed at least 150,000 non-combatants — mostly women and children — in the blink of an eye. Thousands more took hours, days, weeks or months to die).

If Saddam is such a demon, and people are calling for war crimes charges and trials against him and his nation, why do we not hear the same cry for blood directed at those responsible for even greater amounts of “mass destruction” — like those responsible and involved in dropping bombs on the cities mentioned above?

The truth is, the U.S. has set the standard when it comes to the stockpiling and use of weapons of mass destruction.

Four years after his conviction, McVeigh was executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001.

Jayna Davis’s book has received the endorsement of, among other authorities:

  • Former CIA director Jim Woolsey.
  • David Schippers, former congressional investigator and a seasoned prosecutor responsible for prosecuting the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton.
  • Larry Johnson, a former deputy director of the State Department’s Office of Counter Terrorism. According to the Wall Street Journal, Johnson said, “Looking at the Jayna Davis material, what’s clear is that more than Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols were involved. Without a doubt, there’s a Middle Eastern tie to the Oklahoma City bombing.”

This is what Jayna Davis said about the official and media version of the Oklahoma City bombing:

“Here’s where I think it, it lies: It’s going to have to be the peasants with the pitchforks. These people are going to have to rise up, just like the Tea Party movement is angry about Washington policies that affect their pocketbooks and the future of their children and the national deficit. They’re going to have to rise up and demand that this record is corrected.”

Otherwise, the liberal left will continue to use their version of Oklahoma City to smear anybody critical of their control of the federal government. Davis said:

“They’re going to continue to label anybody who carries a placard or raises a voice of dissent in a peaceful protest as a ‘Tim McVeigh wannabe.’  And until The Third Terrorist, and this evidence embodied in my book, is actually proven, prosecuted, and validated in a courtroom setting, the label of ‘Tim McVeigh wannabe’ is going to continue to be attached to God-fearing Americans who dare to step forward and question and hold to account their elected officials.

My belief is, the best way to get this into a courtroom, and to finally seek justice for the slain of April 19th, 1995, is to pressure the District Attorney of Oklahoma County, who single-handedly holds the legal power to go out and arrest these Arab suspects and put them on trial. He does not need the permission of the federal government. He can act single-handedly, either put it before a grand jury and issue an indictment, or he can just issue arrest warrants based on the evidence and talk to the witnesses.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, the court did not grant McVeigh’s attorney Stephen Jones’s request to comb through U.S. intelligence files in search of an Iraq connection to the Oklahoma City bombing. For his part, when he sentenced McVeigh to death, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch said, “It would be disappointing to me if the law enforcement agencies of the United States government have quit looking for answers.”

AIM’s Roger Aronoff asked readers to phone Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater at (405) 713-1600 or here, and ask respectfully that he act on the evidence presented by Jayna Davis.

That was in April 2010, more than 5 years ago.

Star Wars goes to Illuminati dark side

The word “illuminati” is the plural form of the Latin word illuminatus, which means “enlightened.” The Oxford Dictionary defines “enlighten” as to “shed light” and to “give greater knowledge and understanding.”

With a capital “I,” the word Illuminati can refer to:

1. The Order of the Illuminati — a secret society founded in Bavaria by a German philosopher named Adam Weishaupt (1748–1830) during the European Enlightenment on May 1, 1776, to oppose “superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality.” Modeled on the Free Masons, the Bavarian Illuminati was outlawed 7 years later in 1785, but its critics believed the secret society had regrouped and masterminded the bloody French Revolution. [Source: Wikipedia]

2. In contemporary use, “Illuminati” mainly refers to a secret satanic elitist group that some (like writers Mark DiceDavid IckeTexe Marrs) say is linked to the original Bavarian Illuminati, which conspires to control world affairs by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations to establish a New World Order. This Illuminati is satanic, having the fallen angel Lucifer as their master. (The Old English origin of “Lucifer“ is Latin, meaning “morning star” or “light-bringing”. Lux or lucmeans “light”; -fer means “bearing”.)

Illuminati Symbols

In popular culture, the eye and the pyramid — or the eye inside a pyramid — are said to be iconic symbols of the Illuminati.

Whether or not the eye and the pyramid were symbols of the historical Bavarian Illuminati, they unquestionably are used today to symbolize the conspiratorial NWO Illuminati — what Vigilant Citizen calls “the occult elite”. By intentional design, both symbols — especially the one eye — are employed by many Hollywood pop culture entertainers like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and TV shows like Pretty Little Liars.

Below is an example — Beyonce flashing the sign of the one-eye-in-pyramid, with her satanist husband Jay-Z. (go to Vigilant Citizen for more pics).


Now comes pictorial evidence that the new Star Wars movie that already has record advanced ticket sales although it won’t debut in cinemas until December 14, has gone to the Illuminati dark side.

Vigilant Citizen reports, Nov. 5, 2015, that “Disney released five character posters promoting the highly anticipated movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. All five of them prominently feature the one-eye sign, indicating that the movie is part of the elite’s Agenda.”

Star Wars one-eyeStar Wars one eye1Star Wars one eye2Star Wars one eye3

My guess is this is Luke Skywalker

My guess is this is Luke Skywalker

Vigilant Citizen points out that the Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in 2012, and therefore can mold the planned three new Star Wars movies to its liking, and that:

Knowing Disney, its ramifications and its elite ties, you better believe that the “messages” in these new movies will closely conform to the occult elite’s Agenda. The new character posters released by Disney are early proof of this fact. Every one of them – the good guys and bad guys – feature one eye clearly hidden by a weapon. No matter what side they’re on, they’re owned by the elite.

In my series of articles Symbolic Pics of the Month, I regularly highlight the one-eye sign in popular culture as its omnipresence reflects the stronghold of the occult elite has on mass media. It is their sign. In the case of Star Wars, things take giant proportions due to the extreme anticipation of the new movie, the series’ massive fan base and the fact that die-hard fans will embrace every piece of media associated with the movie. In short, it is yet another step into turning popular culture into one big tool of propaganda for the occult elite.

J J Abrams

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is directed, co-produced and co-written by J. J. Abrams. On October 10, 2015, Abrams hosted a “$33,400 a ticket” fundraiser in his home for the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, in which Obama talked “passionately” about the need for gun control. The fundraiser raised over $750,000. (Breitbart).

Abrams is an observant Jew who’s married to an Irish Catholic woman. He said, “I do consider myself Jewish, and I take my kids to services on holidays because that is something really important to me.” (Jewish Journal)

The chairman and CEO of Walt Disney Company is Robert Allen “Bob” Iger, 64, who “was born to a Jewish family, in New York city, New York.” Iger’s wife, his second marriage, is also a Roman Catholic. (Wikipedia)

Al Sharpton gives himself 71% raise thanks to de Blasio, Obama

It pays to be a race baiter.


The New York Post reports that Al Sharpton rewarded himself with a 71% raise last year.  Sharpton’s pay increased from $241,545 in 2013 to $412,644, including a bonus of $64,400, tax filings obtained by The Post.

His National Action Network group drew a record $6.9 million in donations last year — as the controversial cleric’s association with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama lent him a newfound air of legitimacy. The Harlem-based nonprofit collected $2 million more in 2014 than the year before, according to the latest financial records available.

De Blasio’s election gave Sharpton a seat at City Hall, as the mayor treated him as an adviser and presented him at a press event next to Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after the death of Eric Garner. Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five of his Cabinet members.

After Sharpton’s buddy de Blasio took office, some 5,000 people attended NAN’s 2014 conference headlined by Obama and attended by the mayor, Gov. Cuomo and then-US Attorney General Eric Holder. It was NAN’s biggest fund-raiser of the year.

Sharpton has been all over the police for their shootings of “innocent victims.” In August 2014 he held an anti-police rally in Staten Island. And even after all of Sharpton’s police protests, he pulled in a reported $1 million at his 60th-birthday bash. Pols and dignitaries rushed from the annual Al Smith Dinner hosted by Timothy Cardinal Dolan that same night to the NAN fund-raiser at the Four Seasons restaurant.

Al Sharpton

NAN and Sharpton has shaken down donors. The program distributed at his birthday parties had full-page ads from companies that gave money. AT&T, real-estate developer Forest City Ratner, Walmart, McDonald’s, Verizon and GE Asset Management were all included.

The windfall allowed the organization to finish 2014 in the black. Yet as a shocker to no one, NAN and Sharpton continued their deadbeat ways.

NAN didn’t pony up its last installment on the $780,145 it owed the IRS for unpaid payroll taxes until this Oct. 22, the organization’s financial statements show. The nonprofit had racked up unpaid payroll taxes since at least 2003, according to public records.

Sharpton, meanwhile, still has outstanding tax liens of $3.4 million, including money he owes personally to both New York state and the IRS, and taxes owed by his businesses, according to public records. He paid off one federal lien, for $931,398, in April. Sharpton has maintained that he owes much less money than records reflect and that he has been chipping away at the bills through payment plans.

Sharpton insists he didn’t really get a raise last year (he must be using Common Core math). “I’m glad that NAN has resolved all of our past tax debts three years earlier than our agreement with the IRS and paid part of the compensation owed to me for several years I did not receive a salary,” Sharpton said in a statement.

But a spokesman for the organization offered a different explanation, saying the salary hike was repayment of loans Sharpton previously made to NAN.

Former IRS official Marcus Owens, an expert on nonprofit law, said the explanation seemed odd. “To structure the payoff of a loan through a salary transfer doesn’t seem really plausible because no one would want to pay income tax on their own money coming back to them,” Owens said. “It seems like that characterization was developed after the fact for some other purpose.”


Obama makes devil’s horns hand-sign in Turkey

The Group of Twenty or G-20, founded in 1999, is an international forum for the governments and central bank governors of 20 major economies: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union (EU). The purpose of the G-20 is to study, review and promote high-level discussion of policy issues pertaining to the promotion of international financial stability.

This year, the G-20 Summit took place in Antalya, Turkey, on November 15-16, 2015.

When Obama was in Antalya, this pic below was taken of him making a devil’s horns hand-sign.

Obama makes devil sign

The pic was posted on the Facebook page of Nassar F. Nasralha on Nov. 20, 2015, with the following comment:

During his visit to Turkey on the occasion of the G-20 annual meeting in Antalya Obama doing sign of the Grey wolves a Turkish fascist group which is anti-semitic, anti-Israel and Jews, anti-Christians, anti Armenians and anti Kurds…

According to Wikipedia:

The Grey Wolves (Turkish: Bozkurtlar) . . . is a Turkish nationalist organization. It is variously described as ultra-nationalist or neo-fascist. Formally a youth organization with close links to the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), it has been described as MHP’s “militant youth arm”, “unofficial militant arm”, and “paramilitary and terrorist wing”…. The Grey Wolves have a “strong emphasis on leadership and hierarchical, military-like organisation.”

The ideology of the Grey Wolves is described as:

  • Race-based: belief in a “Turkish race”
  • Supremacist: belief in “the superiority of the Turkish race”)
  • Theocratic: “its conception of the Turkish nation is blended with Islam”; “The principle of . . . the synthesis of Turkishness and Islam is very dominant in their rhetoric and activities.”
  • Their ideal Turkish nation is Sunni-Islamic and mono-ethnic, inhabited by “true” Turks.
  • Pan-Turkist: The Grey Wolves seek to unite the Turkic peoples in one state or empire stretching from the Balkans to Central Asia, including the newly independent Central Asian states of the former Soviet Union.

The UK’s Telegraph calls the Grey Wolves an “ultra-nationalist Turkish terrorist group”.

The Grey Wolves and Nationalist Movement Party supporters are known for their hand sign, which represents a wolf head. It is made by holding up the forefinger and little finger.

Call it the Grey Wolves’ sign all you want, it’s still the devil’s horns hand-sign, by whatever name.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of LaVey and Obama:

Anton LaVey & Obama make devil's horns handsign

At best, Obama was making the Grey Wolves salutation, which means the President of the United States was expressing his solidarity with an Islamic racial supremacist terrorist group. At worst, the President of the United States was making the devil’s hand-sign.

To all those who voted for the POS in 2008 and again in 2012, you must be so proud.

But then, Obama voters probably are proud of him, being satan worshippers themselves. I honestly can’t explain their votes otherwise.

Lest we forget, here’s FLPOS making the “Grey Wolves” satanic hand-sign.

Video of missile (?) hitting Pentagon on 9/11

American Airlines (AA) Flight 77 was a scheduled AA domestic transcontinental passenger flight from Washington Dulles International Airport in Dulles, Virginia, to Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles, California.

We are told that on September 11, 2001, AA Flight 77 was hijacked by five men affiliated with al-Qaeda, as part of the September 11 attacks. They deliberately crashed the plane, flying at 530 mph, into the western side of the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, near Washington, D.C., killing all 64 people on board, including the five hijackers and six crew, as well as 125 people in the building. (Wikipedia)

That’s the official story.

Below is a GIF generated from a video that reportedly was “leaked” in 2011, ten years after 9/11.

missile hit Pentagon on 9-11

The GIF and the video show what appears to be a missile, not a plane, traveling low to the ground, hitting the side of the Pentagon building.

American Airline Boeing 757 is a mid-size, narrow-body twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its dimensions are:

  • Wing span: 124 ft 10 in
  • Length: 155 ft 3 in
  • Height: 44 ft 6 in

The video below, uploaded to YouTube by The Reformist Club on Sept. 2, 2011, shows the hole made by the alleged Boeing 757, which appears too small to have been made by a jet liner.

It is asserted that what struck the Pentagon was a Cruise type missile, either a Tomahawk or Russian/Soviet Granit, according to former officer of the Soviet nuclear intelligence Dimitri Khalezov.

Veterans Today describes Dimitri Khalezov as:

former Soviet citizen, a former commissioned officer of the so-called ‘military unit 46179’, otherwise known as ‘the Special Control Service’ of the 12th Chief Directorate of the Defense Ministry of the USSR. The Special Control Service, also known as the Soviet atomic (later ‘nuclear’) intelligence was a secret military unit responsible for detecting of nuclear explosions (including underground nuclear tests) of various adversaries of the former USSR as well as responsible for controlling of observance of various international treaties related to nuclear testing and to peaceful nuclear explosions. After September the 11th Khalezov undertook some extensive 9/11 research and proved that the Twin Towers of World Trade Center as well as its building 7 were demolished by three underground thermo-nuclear explosions – which earned the very name ‘ground zero’ to the demolition site. Moreover, he testifies that he knew about the in-built so-called ’emergency nuclear demolitions scheme’ of the Twin Towers as long ago as back in the ‘80s – while being a serviceman in the Soviet Special Control Service.

After 9/11, Khalezov undertook extensive research on the collapse of the three World Trade Center Towers. He claims that his research demonstrates that the three towers were demolished by three underground thermo-nuclear explosions.
He also claims that he had known about the nuclear demolitions scheme for the Twin Towers in the 1980s, while a serviceman in the Soviet Special Control Service.

Does it look to you that the Pentagon was struck by a missile, not a Boeing 757?
