Big heap no surprise: Elizabeth Warren plans to run for president in 2020

Her odds of winning: 1/1024.

From NY Post: Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday announced her intention to run for president in 2020 as a champion of middle-class Americans and a foe of big banks and Wall Street fat cats.

Warren, who said she was creating an exploratory committee that will allow her to raise funds and hire staffers, will be among a crowded field of Democrats taking a shot at the White House.

“America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in a four-minute, 30-second video posted to YouTube. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”

In the video, the 69-year-old former law professor lays out her vision of the future, while setting herself up as a foil to President Trump and members of his administration.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster,” she says. “What I’ve found is terrifying. These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps.”

The Republican National Committee dismissed Warren’s candidacy, saying her “out of touch” agenda poses no threat to Trump. “With her lack of support from voters – including in her home state – on top of her phony claim to minority status, now that she is formally running Americans will see her for what she is: another extreme far-left obstructionist and a total fraud,” Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

The president, who has announced that he will seek re-election in 2020, has trashed Warren in the past for her claims that she is partly Native American, referring to her as “Pocahontas.”

Warren in October released DNA testing results that showed there was “strong evidence” that she has Native American blood. The release was intended to quell questions about her heritage but prompted criticism from Native American leaders and left some supported puzzled why she would rekindle the controversy.

A number of Democrats are expected to announce presidential campaigns in the next few months, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate bid in November to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, are also weighing getting in the race.

Crazy train is getting an early start: Demorats to hold at least a dozen presidential primary debates, starting next June

DNC Chair Tom Perez leading with values…

I can sum up what to expect in these primary debates: Orange Man Bad, immigrant values, no border wall, Orange Man Bad, raise taxes on the rich, climate change, Orange Man Bad, female reproductive rights, Orange Man Bad…you get the idea.

From NY Post: The Democratic National Committee — which was accused of rigging the 2016 primary election for establishment favorite Hillary Clinton — announced Thursday that it will host a dozen primary debates that could be open to as many as 20 candidates to start.

To accommodate what is expected to be a large field of White House wannabes, DNC chair Tom Perez said the party’s first two debates in June and July could be held on multiple nights to accommodate all the candidates. The lineup each night would be determined at random.

“To win back the presidency in 2020, Democrats must lead with our values. That began with the historic reforms to expand and increase trust in our party, and will continue by conducting party business fairly, transparently, and inclusively throughout the 2020 primary process,” Perez said.

Perez said his goal is to give “the grass-roots a bigger voice than ever before” and to allow candidates to reach as many potential voters as possible.

“That is how we will put our nominee in the strongest position possible to defeat Donald Trump, and how we will help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” he said.

Of the 12 debates, six will be held in 2019 and six in 2020. The showdowns in 2020 will be held in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.

While vowing to be inclusive, the DNC acknowledged judgments will have to be made on the viability of the candidates.

“Candidates will qualify for the first two debates by meeting criteria that include both polling and other objectives that reflect a candidate’s support, such as grassroots fundraising,” the DNC said in outlining its plan. The precise criteria for the first two debates will be announced next month.

Supporters of Bernie Sanders charged the DNC went out of its way to help Clinton, his primary rival in 2016, by scheduling debates at times that were favorable to her. There were also accusations that Clinton got some questions in advance.

European Jewish Congress: Bible should contain warnings about antisemitic passages; governments must fund fight against antisemitism

Founded in 1986, the European Jewish Congress (EJC) is an umbrella organization of 42 national Jewish communities in Europe, representing more than 2.5 million European Jews. Affiliated to the World Jewish Congress, the EJC is one of the most influential international public associations. It works with national governments, European Union institutions and the Council of Europe. Based in Paris, the EJC has offices in Brussels, Strasbourg, Berlin and Budapest.

The Jerusalem Post reports that on November 21, 2018, the EJC convened a high level conference in Vienna, Austria, on “Europe beyond antisemitism and anti-Zionism – securing Jewish life in Europe”.

The conference was arranged by the Federal Chancellery of Austria led by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz who, in his opening address, said “Antisemitism and anti-Zionism are getting blurred, but they are two sides of the same coin.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a recorded video speech at the conference, in which he said that antisemitism was resurgent again “throughout the world,” and that a new antisemitism has arisen which attempts “to demonize the Jewish state and prevent the Jewish people the right to self-determination in the homeland of our forefathers, the Land of Israel. Netanyahu said that “The Holocaust did not begin in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. The Holocaust began with the spread of hate speech, the burning of books and the smashing of shop windows.”

EJC president Dr. Moshe Kantor said at the conference:

“Today, on European streets, people are being killed again simply for being Jewish. Jewish communities in Europe are increasingly concerned about their security and pessimistic about their future. Europe doesn’t have a monopoly on antisemitism anymore. No Jewish community anywhere in the world, however strong and well organized, is now immune from Jew hatred. Fighting antisemitism deserves much more than simple statements of good will – we need concrete policies and reinforced legislation.”

To that end, the conference produced a Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism — detailed proposals and recommendations for combating antisemitism in Europe, drawn up by the EJC with the assistance of academics from universities in Vienna, Tel Aviv and New York. (Daily Mail names Israeli historian Dina Porat and New York University professor Lawrence H. Schiffman as among the academics.)

Chancellor Kurz said he intends to bring the document before the European Council, the body comprising the 28 EU member heads of state that determines policy direction, at its next summit in December. Raising the issue at the European Council would be prelude to the adoption of the recommendations by the EU and Europe’s national governments.

On its website, the European Jewish Congress identifies the following recommendations of the Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism:

  1. Adoption and implementation of the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism by all countries, institutions and businesses;
  2. Governments and intergovernmental organizations should condemn the blatant state-sanctioned antisemitism that exist in a number of countries, such as Iran;
  3. All countries should appoint an envoy for combatting antisemitism;
  4. Every country should commit to a percentage of its GDP, annually, to fund the fight against antisemitism;
  5. Creating new legal frameworks to combat antisemitism effectively and strengthening existing ones;
  6. People who express or hold antisemitic views should not be allowed to be members of political parties or occupy a position of power;
  7. Companies should be advised not to do business with countries or organizations that support antisemitism in any way;
  8. Governments should commit financial and operational resources to ensure the security of Jewish communities;
  9. Internet companies should be liable for antisemitic content on their platforms.

Curiously, left out of the above recommendations is the call for new editions of the Bible and Koran to carry warning messages about anti-Semitic passages.

James Wood reports for Daily Mail, Nov. 23, 2018, that the recommendation is in the EJC’s conference document, An End to Antisemitism! A Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism, in a chapter entitled “Recommendations regarding Religious Groups and Institutions”. The document reads:

Translations of the New Testament, the Qur’an and other Christian or Muslim literatures need marginal glosses, and introductions that emphasize continuity with Jewish heritage of both Christianity and Islam and warn readers about antisemitic passages in them. While some efforts have been made in this direction in the case of Christianity, these efforts need to be extended and made consistent in both religions.

The Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism also calls for:

  • The identification and rejection of all antisemitic texts and passages in the heritage of Christianity and Islam.
  • Religious leaders and thinkers to public denounce as “unholy writ”  all canonical or quasi-canonical writings of religious anti-Semites.

The Catalogue‘s justification for these changes is because divine messages are always communicated through human beings and therefore subject to error. It reads:

God’s revelation is thus marred by human fallibility. Beginning with the New Testament, divine revelation expresses itself in Christian holy texts that also express a form of hatred. The manifestations of this hatred resulted in a tradition of antisemitism that gave moral legitimacy to crimes against the Jewish people, the epitome of which is the Shoah.

Several themes in the New Testament have come under fire for being anti-Semitic. These include blaming Jews for the death of Jesus, and negative remarks about the stubborn nature of the Jewish people and their disloyalty to God.

So what is the IHRA working definition of antisemitism?

On May 26, 2016, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) — of which the United States is a member — adopted the following the “non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism“, which is used by the U.S. State Department:

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

Alas, the working definition does not define what “hatred toward Jews” means, but that meaning can be gleaned from what the IHRA considers to be contemporary examples of antisemitism, including:

  • Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective—such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
  • Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
  • Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
  • Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
  • Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.

What the IHRA, European Jewish Congress and its Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism conveniently omit is that the Talmud, which supercedes the Torah (Old Testament) in religious authority for Jews, is rabidly anti-Christian.

Written in Hebrew between the third and sixth centuries, the Talmud is a collection of 63 books that together codify the oral law that Jewish rabbis claim was handed down from Moses. Jesus, in Matthew 15, however condemns that oral law when he said: “By the traditions of your elders you make void the Word of God.”

English translations of the Talmud have been watered down so as to conceal from the Gentiles the “satanic verses” contained in the original Hebrew. Those “satanic verses” can be classified into three categories:

  1. Jewish supremacy
  2. Hatred for “goys” or Gentiles
  3. Hatred for Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, and all Christians. Some examples:
    • Jesus (“Yashu”) is in Hell being “boiled in hot excrement” (Gittin 57a); Jesus was sexually immoral and “worshipped a brick” (Sanhedrin 107b); Jesus was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness and refusal to repent (Sotah 47a).
    • Mary (“Miriam the hairdresser”) was a prostitute who “had sex with many men” (Shabbath 104b, Hebrew Edition only); “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters” (Sanhedrin 106a).
    • “Christians who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations” (Rosh Hashanah 17a); “All things pertaining to the Goim are like a desert; the first person to come along and take them can claim them for his own” (Babha Bathra 54b).

The rotten fruits of identity politics: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declares war on white Democrats

Identity politics is based on the idea that certain racial-ethnic-gender-sexual orientation groups are oppressed, and that one’s identity as a member of those groups makes one peculiarly vulnerable to societal oppression and cultural imperialism.

The Demonrat Party has wielded identity politics to to divide Americans from each other, and to corrupt all institutions in American society — political, economic, educational, and socio-cultural. Now, the party is beginning to reap the rotten harvest of what they themselves have fomented.

Faux socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a $3,505 designer outfit

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly-elected Congresswoman from New York and faux socialist in the $3,505 designer pantsuit, is backing the Justice Democrats — a socialist insurgent group within the Demonrat Party which opposes “Democratic incumbents who are demographically and ideologically out-of-touch with their districts.”

Note: Just as the Left have corrupted the rainbow by appropriating it as an LGBT symbol, they’ve also corrupted the word “justice” by equating it with Marxist socialism, as in “social justice” and “Justice Democrats”.

Ocasio-Cortez signaled her support in a tweet @Ocasio2018 last Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018:

If you’re a strong progressive leader in your community and committed to getting money out of politics, I want you to join me in Congress. I want you to run. To run in 2020 without corporate money, you need to start considering now. Join @justicedems tonight to learn more.

Joel B. Pollak reports for Breitbart, Nov. 18, 2018, that the Justice Democrats had helped Ocasio-Cortez oust veteran Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in a primary in New York’s 14th congressional district earlier this year.

Justice Democrats’ executive director Alexandra Rojas, a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016, declares in a press release:

We recruited and supported Ocasio-Cortez all the way to a historic victory and now we’re going to repeat the playbook. There’s lots of blue districts in this country where communities want to support a new generation of diverse working-class leaders who fight tirelessly for their voters and build a movement around big solutions to our country’s biggest problems. We’re creating an alternative pathway to Congress for grassroots candidates to become leaders in the Democratic Party.

The #OurTime project is a grassroots candidate recruitment effort asking Democrats and progressives around the country to submit nominees for both potential candidates and districts where an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-style campaign might succeed. The organization will prioritize candidates who are women, represent the diversity of communities in their district, and support the major tenets of Justice Democrats platform: rejecting corporate PAC donations, Medicare For All, free college, dismantling mass incarceration and deportations, and a Green New Deal.

Since winning her election Nov. 6, and even though she has not yet taken office, Ocasio-Cortez is already committed to replacing many of her colleagues on the basis of race and ideology. She is challenging the Democratic Party leadership, joining a sit-in protest in the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over climate change policy.

Others backing the #OurTime campaign include Muslim Representative-elect Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who was born to Palestinian immigrants in Detroit and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.

Ageist: Rosie O’Donnell calls for senior GOP politicians to retire

From Fox News: Rosie O’Donnell took to Twitter to mock the age of prominent Republicans, calling on Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, to retire – despite lefty leaders being the same age.

“Grassley and hatch – too old – they should be done – come on – at thanksgiving we don’t let the 85 year olds carve the turkey #retire,” O’Donnell tweeted.

Hatch, the Senate president pro tempore and third in the presidential line of succession behind Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Grassley are two of the GOP’s most prominent members. Many Hollywood liberals, including O’Donnell, are currently upset that many Republicans continue to support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual harassment allegations.

Grassley is 85, while Hatch is 84 years old. But several prominent Democrats are in the same age range. Liberal icons Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Dianne Feinstein are both 85, Maxine Waters is 80, Nancy Pelosi is 78 and Bernie Sanders is a spry 77 years old.

A 2014 Gallup poll showed the average retirement age is 62.

O’Donnell, 56, has a decades-old feud with President Trump and she has been an outspoken critic of his administration. Some of her followers were offended by her call for the older Republicans to retire.

I hate to bring this up but discriminating against someone because of their age is just as wrong as any other form of discrimination. Their behavior was the same decades ago. Approaching 70 myself, I’ll match wits with you any time you’d like,” one user wrote.

“Not cool,” another follower added. “Plenty of 85 year old people are as sharp as ever.”

Just last year, CNN published a story headlined, “The Democratic Party has an age problem,” that noted the ongoing problem with the advanced age of some liberal leaders.

“Democratic leaders across both the legislative and executive branches are generally older than leadership on the other side of the aisle,” CNN’s Ryan Struyk wrote before noting the average age of Democrats on Capitol Hill was 61, while the average Republican was 57.2 years old.

RICO lawsuit filed against Soros, Clintons, Podesta, Clinton Foundation, David Brock & Media Matters

Since the Department of Justice seems reluctant or unable to do it, a former Secret Service agent is taking matters into his hands.
Former Secret Service officer Gary J. Byrne is the author of the 2016 bestseller, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate. Byrne concludes that from his experiences, Hillary Clinton “lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office” of the U.S. presidency.

On June 15, 2018, in the District of Columbia District Court, Gary Byrne filed a civil lawsuit, Byrne v. Clinton Foundation et al, Case no. 1:2018cv01422, against these individuals and organizations for RICO — racketeering and fraud. In alphabetical order, the defendants are:

  1. American Bridge 21st Century: Democrat super PAC founded by David Brock (#2 below) in 2010 and associated with Brock’s Media Matters (see #11 below).
  2. David Brock: A Democrat Party operative, Clinton crony, and former boyfriend of Comet Ping Pong owner, James Alefantis.
  3. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington: A supposedly non-partisan, non-profit, government ethics and accountability watchdog organization that is identified by both the New York Times and Fox News as “liberal”.
  4. William Jefferson Clinton
  5. Hillary Rodham Clinton
  6. Clinton Foundation: A non-profit founded by Bill Cinton, with a record of play-for-pay corruption.
  7. Clinton Global Initiative: A program or initiative of the Clinton Foundation.
  8. Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership: An initiative of the Clinton Foundation for “poverty alleviation” in developing countries. Canadian businessman Frank Giustra is on the board of trustees of the Clinton Foundation.
  9. Correct the Record: A super PAC founded by David Brock to support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign by finding and confronting social media users who posted unflattering messages about Hillary, and paying anonymous tipsters for unflattering scoops about Hillary’s rivals Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, including audio and video recordings and internal documents.
  10. Jan Gilooly: Gilloly is probably a typo. Jan Gilhooly is president of the Association of Former Agents of the United States Secret Service, who claimed that Byrne had “underlying motives” for writing his book about the Clintons, Crisis of Character.
  11. Media Matters for America: A left-wing, tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, founded by David Brock, with the stated mission of “comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media”.
  12. John Podesta is a longtime Clinton operative who was chair of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign, Obama’s White House counselor, and Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff. He is now chair of the Center for American Progress, a D.C. think tank, and a visiting professor at Georgetown University Law Center.
  13. Share Blue or Shareblue Media is a leftwing news website owned by David Brock, which aims to raise $40 million to oppose President Trump’s policies.
  14. George Soros: Evil billionaire international financier who was a Nazi collaborator and who made his fortune in currency speculation — a parasitic undertaking that produces neither goods nor services nor anything of value, except for the speculator.
  15. Jonathan Wackrow: A former Secret Service agent who is now a CNN law enforcement analyst and managing director of Teneo Risk, a strategic threat advisory firm.

RICO is the acronym for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act — a U.S. federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering — a planned or organized criminal operation — and enables the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing. In so doing, RICO closes a loophole that had allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually commit the crime personally.
Byrne’s case has been assigned to Judge Paul L. Friedman, who was appointed in 1994 by Bill Clinton to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
