Israeli art museum exhibition mocks Jesus Christ’s crucifixion

An exhibition at the Haifa Museum of Art in Israel displays artworks that insult Jesus Christ, but not the Islamic and Judaic religions.

The museum describes the “Sacred Goods” exhibition, curated by Shaked Shamir, which began on August 4 last year and ends today, as follows:

This exhibition focuses on the responses of contemporary artists to issues of religion and faith in the contemporary global reality, which is dominated by the consumer culture. In recent decades, various cultures and places around the world have witnessed a surprising religious revival. Theorist Boris Groys argues that in a world that has renounced the grand secular ideologies, the return to religion fulfills the need for meaning. Contemporary religions offer answers to the ills of the modern world and the sense of emptiness that pervades this era of extreme individualism and aggressive capitalism…. Consumer culture dictates a superficial interest in religious products and techniques, while ignoring the philosophical and ethical meanings of religion…. In the contemporary context, the artists participating in the exhibition employ religious symbols to criticize the encroachment of the consumer culture on our lives in general, and on the religious sphere in particular. The artists also criticize the way religions use consumer values and practices in order to prosper in the contemporary reality.

The participating artists are identified as Elodie Abergel, Ido Abramsohn, Gabi Ben Avraham, Magnus Gjoen, Vania Heymann, Jani Leinonen, Tony Leone, Ariane Littman, Esther Naor, Karam Natour, Pool & Marianela, and Nick Stern.

The exhibition includes these artworks and images that blaspheme God the Father, Jesus Christ and insults Christianity:

Our Lord Jesus Christ as a Ken doll:

Mocking His Crucifixion:

Mocking His Resurrection:

But no mockery of the Ark of the Covenant that’s celebrated in Judaism, or any other Judaic symbol or figure, nor of Islam:

In addition to insulting Jesus, the art exhibition trashes religion in general, while glorifying globalization:

In a reality wherein globalization aspires for cultural unification, religion offers its followers the illusion of a return to their roots and to distinctive local traditions.

Christian leaders in Israel have singled out Finnish artist Jani Leinonen‘s McJesus sculpture of a crucified Ronald McDonald, while ignoring the other offensive exhibits.

For his part, Leinonen said that last September, he had requested his McJesus sculpture be removed from the museum’s Sacred Goods exhibition, to no avail, and that McJesus is on display against his wishes.

In early January 2019, some four months after the opening of the “Sacred Goods” exhibition, Israel’s culture minister Miri Regev sent museum director Nissim Tal a letter week demanding McJesus’s removal, writing that: “Disrespect of religious symbols sacred to many worshippers in the world as an act of artistic protest is illegitimate and cannot serve as art at a cultural institution supported by state funds.” But the museum refused to remove the sculpture.

On January 14, 2019, hundreds of Christians protested outside the Haifa Museum of Art against McJesus. Violent clashes broke out between Christian protesters who tried to storm their way into the museum and the police, after a molotov cocktail was thrown at the museum the day before.

One of the protesters complained that the Israeli government was slow to respond because McJesus mocks Christianity and not Judaism: “If they put up [a sculpture of] Hitler with a Torah scroll they would immediately respond.” (The Art Newspaper)

German Chancellor Angela Merkel: nation-states must give up their sovereignty

Remember this?

So it should come as no surprise than German Chancellor Angela Merkel is now outright telling European states — and all the countries in the world — that they “must today be ready to give up [their] sovereignty” as independent nation-states.

Tom Nellist reports for the UK Express that on November 23, 2018 in a speech at an event organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin, titled “Parliamentarianism Between Globalisation and National Sovereignty,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel defended the United Nations migration pact signed in July by all UN member countries except the United States. Merkel said, “In this day nation states must today – should today, I say – be ready to give up sovereignty. But of course in an orderly procedure.”

In a thinly veiled attack on President Trump and populist parties in Europe, .Merkel trashed nationalism and countries that are nationalist as selfish. Instead, nation-states should cede their power to a superstate, which is a better form of nationalism. She said: “Either you are one of those who believe they can solve everything on their own and only have to think about themselves. That is nationalism in its purest form. This is not patriotism. Because patriotism is if you include others in the German interest and accept win-win situations.”

Last month, Merkel announced she was stepping down as leader of her party but not as Chancellor of Germany.

Merkel’s 13-year premiership has been noted for her open-door policy toward Muslim “migrants” and “refugees,” which has led to much social chaos and unrest, as well as demographic changes so drastic that Germany will be a white-minority country in one generation.

Update (Jan. 4, 2019)

Retribution? Bloomberg Quint reports that “Hackers have released private data linked to Chancellor Angela Merkel and hundreds of other German politicians in the biggest data dump of its kind in the country. The information includes email addresses, mobile phone numbers and personal chat transcripts…. The data were leaked over the past weeks via a Twitter account called ‘G0d’ that identifies itself as based in Hamburg….”

Spontaneous Yellow Vests movement’s domain name was registered a year before in May 2017

The Yellow Vests movement is a mass movement that began online in France in May 2018 as a protest against a gas tax hike (of about 25 cents a gallon). The movement quickly metamorphosed beyond the internet when protesters, wearing yellow vests as a symbol, took to the streets rioting against high taxes, eroding living standards, and what many see as the government’s indifference to the concerns of France’s regions and ordinary people.

Note: Since 2008, all motorists in France are required by law to have high-visibility yellow vests in their vehicles when driving, as a safety measure should the driver be required to exit the vehicle on the roadside.

The movement has spread beyond France to Belgium and the United Kingdom.

“Yellow vests” is gilets jaunes in French. We are told that the Yellow Vests or Gilets Jaunes movement is a spontaneous popular uprising, so it is most curious that a Frenchman who calls himself Jean L. discovered that the internet domain name www.giletsjaunes.com had been registered on May 15, 2017 — a full year before the Gilets Jaunes movement actually began.

See Jean L, “Yellow Vests – Color Revolution Gone Awry?,” henrymakow.com, Dec. 21, 2018.

More curious still, the giletsjaunes.com domain name was registered in Denver, Colorado. Below is the domain’s registrar information from NameBright.com:

Jean L. also points out the pop-culture foreshadowing, aka predictive programming, of the Yellow Vests movement in The Economist‘s 2017 cover, specifically the modified “Hermit” Tarot card depicting hordes of yellow-garbed people protesting against globalization, holding flags against the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and the EU (European Union).

The Rothschilds are shareholders (21%) of The Economist. (Wikipedia)

Meanwhile, elements in the French military are in open rebellion against President Emmanuel Macron.

As reported by Voice of Europe on Dec. 14, eleven generals, an admiral, a colonel and a former Minister of Defense signed a letter accusing Macron of treason for signing the UN Global Migration Pact that strips France of even more sovereignty, thereby providing anoother reason for “an already battered people” to “revolt”. The letter says mass immigration is erasing France’s “civilizational landmarks” and that “The French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic.”

The pact, which was signed by 164 countries, has been protested by Yellow Vest demonstrations in five countries.

Financial Times names George Soros ‘Person of the Year’ for promoting globalism, elitism and open borders

Founded in 1888, Financial Times (FT) is an international daily newspaper, headquartered in London, with a special emphasis on business and economic news. In 2015, Acquired in 2015 by Nikkei Inc. for £844m ($1.32 billion), FT is considered the most important business read, reaching 36% of the business-financial population, 11% more than its main rival, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

Financial Times has just named George Soros “Person of the Year” — the ever-scheming financier who made his billionaire fortune in the wholly unproductive currency-speculation and hedge funds, and who, through his foundations, foments and funds every Leftist, western civilization-destroying machination and movement, from racial protests and the “migrant caravan” invasion of America, to Europe’s open-border policy for Muslim “migrants” and “refugees”. See:

In the words of the Financial Times, Soros is Person of the Year because he fights the “extreme right” “forces of nationalism and populism,” which is FT‘s way of commending him for championing the left, globalism and elitism.

FT also stoops low by flinging the all-purpose “anti-Semitic” label at critics of Soros, which effectively shields him from every and all criticism.

Below are excerpts from Roula Khalaf’s nauseatingly fawning article, “FT Person of the Year: George Soros,” Financial Times, Dec. 19, 2018:

For a man facing daily attacks for his activism and liberal vision of the world, George Soros was in a curiously buoyant mood on a sunswept afternoon in Marrakesh. He had just visited South Africa, home to his first philanthropic foray in the late 1970s, when he funded black students under apartheid. This time he learnt that Soros-backed investigative media and civil society groups had helped thwart an allegedly corrupt nuclear power plant contract with Russia.

“It was a tremendous boost to reinforce my belief that we are doing something right,” says Mr Soros. “We haven’t stopped having a beneficial influence.”

Influence has come at a painfully high cost for the 88-year-old father of the hedge fund industry and one of the world’s most prominent philanthropists. From his native Hungary to his adopted America, the forces of nationalism and populism are battering the liberal democratic order he has tirelessly supported. The man once described as the only individual with a foreign policy must contend with the rise of strongmen across the globe — and a vicious backlash designed to delegitimise him.

The Financial Times’s choice of Person of the Year is usually a reflection of their achievements. In the case of Mr Soros this year, his selection is also about the values he represents.

He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society. These are the ideas which triumphed in the cold war. Today, they are under siege from all sides, from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to Donald Trump’s America.

For more than three decades, Mr Soros has used philanthropy to battle against authoritarianism, racism and intolerance. Through his long commitment to openness, media freedom and human rights, he has attracted the wrath of authoritarian regimes and, increasingly, the national populists who continue to gain ground, particularly in Europe….

There are so many anti-Semitic conspiracy theories targeting Mr Soros that it is difficult to keep count. Hardly a day goes by without a statement, a tweet or an image depicting him as a master manipulator of global politics.

The venom, long concealed among extreme right networks, has leaked into the mainstream: Mr Trump, who resents Mr Soros’ support for the Democrats, has peddled allegations that he funded the caravan of central American migrants, claims that have appeared to have partly inspired the October attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Earlier that month, Mr Soros was the first in a series of Trump critics targeted with an explosive device sent to his suburban New York home. “I have been painted as the devil. The fact that extremists are motivated by false conspiracy theories about me to kill hurts me tremendously,” says Mr Soros. […]

In his twilight years, Mr Soros is looking beyond his formidable legacy. Having originally planned that his foundation would last his lifetime, he completed the transfer last year of $18bn from his family office to the Open Society Foundations. That reduced his fortune to $8bn, according to Forbes magazine, but ensured that his activism would take on a life of its own. And he has found a successor in philanthropy: his son, Alexander. “We fight for principles, we fight irrespective of the results, win or lose,” he says. And, almost as an afterthought, he says: “I don’t like to lose so much.”

About Soros’ son and heir, Alexander, see “George Soros’ son, Alex, is a ‘spirit cooker’?“.

By the way, the “explosive device” sent to Soros’ suburban New York home was a false flag. See “How we know package bombs sent to Democrats are false flags” and “Cesar Sayoc, package bomber: The pieces that don’t fit”.

What happened to Cesar Sayoc, about whom we’ve heard nothing since his supposed arrest?

Karl Marx

Burning in hell now 135 years

(unless he repented in the last moments)

A pastor and great teacher of mine used to say we should expect to be surprised when we get to heaven. We will likely see people there who we were sure would be in hell, and notice that others we thought would be in heaven are distinctly absent.

Having said that, however, if Marx did not repent at the last and receive forgiveness, then he will surely have spent the last 135 years since his death in 1883 in the torments of hell. There are few whose writings have caused more harm, more murder than the writings of Karl Marx.

So when I see Marx’s followers rise up in our nation, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders and Tom Perez, I am greatly troubled for the future of our republic. I believe the very same devils that powered Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin are now in possession of these people, and intending to bring about the same kinds of blood baths we saw in the 20th century.

EU armored vehicles deployed against unarmed Paris protesters

Paris is burning.

David Vives reports for The Epoch Times that anti-government protests in France are growing ever larger as an estimated 125,000 yellow-vested demonstrators in Paris took to the streets yesterday, despite Prime Minister Edouard Philippe’s concession last Wednesday to scrap the tax hike.

The 4-week long protests, dubbed the Yellow Vest movement because of the yellow vests worn by the protesters as a symbol, began online in May 2018 as a protest against a gas tax hike (of about 25 cents a gallon) and metamorphosed into street riots against high taxes, eroding living standards, and what many see as the government’s indifference to the concerns of France’s regions and ordinary people. The movement has spread beyond France to Belgium.

Note: Since 2008, all motorists in France are required by law to have high-visibility yellow vests in their vehicles when driving, as a safety measure should the driver be required to exit the vehicle on the roadside.

In Paris, a ring of steel of trucks and reinforced metal barriers surrounded President Emmanuel Macron’s Elysee Palace, although Macron himself has gone AWOL, unseen in public all last week.

See DCG’s “Shocker, not: Macron AWOL as violence, protests continue in Paris

More than 1,200 people were arrested before the Saturday protest began in an effort to mitigate violence as much as possible. The December 1 riots had damaged the Arc de Triomphe and injured 130 people. Police also confiscated from protesters anything that could be used as protection such as helmets, protective glasses, and cartridges of saline solution for the eyes.

Saturday’s Yellow Vest crowd was overwhelmingly male, a mix of those with financial grievances and apparently experienced vandals, who tore steadily through some of Paris’ wealthiest neighborhoods, smashing and burning.

Demonstrations have been taking place elsewhere in France as well. Police and protesters clashed in the southern cities of Marseille and Toulouse. About 89,000 security forces are deployed across the nation, including military, local police, and special police, who are authorized to engage in physical contact if necessary, as well as use batons and flash-balls, a non-lethal hand-held weapon.

What the French government doesn’t say is that they’ve called in the European Union (EU) military, as indicated by armored vehicles with the EU’s blue-and-gold-stars flag.

Below is a cell-phone video, showing two EU armored vehicles being deployed against the protesters in Paris.

Among Saturday’s protesters was retired General Christian Piquemal in a yellow vest. He said, “France has been a beacon for the world, it was a country with eternal vows, and today it’s totally decaying. We need to find ourselves again as people who share common values.”

Political columnist Eric Verhaeghe says that “The base of the yellow vest movement is ordinary people … who are desperate,” and that the heart of the movement is libertarian, wanting less government and more freedom, with aims similar to the original Boston Tea Party and the modern Tea Party movement in America.

Meanwhile, the French government has taken a leaf from the American Left’s playbook by blaming the Yellow Vest protests on Russia.

Bloomberg reports, Dec. 9, 2018, that France opened a probe into possible Russian interference behind the country’s Yellow Vest protests, after reports that social-media accounts linked to Moscow have increasingly targeted the movement, and that Russian-linked sites, e.g., Sputnik and RT, have reported a mutiny among police, and of officers’ support for the protests.

According to the Alliance for Securing Democracy — a unit of the German Marshall Fund of the U.S. which monitors pro-Kremlin activity — about 600 Twitter accounts “known to promote Kremlin views” have begun focusing on France, boosting their use of the hashtag #giletsjaunes, the French name for the Yellow Vest movement. French security services are looking at the situation, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Sunday in a radio interview.

French Roast

You Will Reap What You Sow

Like French Roast coffee, I will make this post short and bitter.

France has a long history of evil, persecuting christians, and supporting and harboring monsters. A city that gave shelter to the exiled Ayatollah Khomeini, Karl Marx, and a place for the leader of the PLO to hide his stolen billions, can expect a dark harvest.

I know there is much to love about the French, but there is also a parallel line of the country’s history that will demand justice. The infamous globalists are very comfortable in Paris. So also the terrorist organization known as Antifa.

America, take notice!  

You too will answer to the seeds you have sown.

Stanford University fraternity told to remove American flag because it’s intimidating and aggressive

The next time we find ourselves despairing about the future of America, remember the young people of Sigma Chi and the Stanford Review.

The Stanford Review is an independent newspaper staffed completely by Stanford University undergraduates. It describes itself as “a political magazine that promotes independent thought at Stanford. We aim to promote debate about campus and national issues that are otherwise not represented by traditional publications.”

Stanford Review‘s executive director Antigone Xenopoulos reports on Nov. 28, 2018, that the Sigma Chi fraternity was on probation last year. So the fraternity tried to improve its image with the university so that the probation would be lifted and the fraternity be allowed to continue.

According to senior Pablo Lozano, class of 2018, as well as other students who asked not to be named, a Stanford University administrator “encouraged” Sigma Chi to take down the American flag flown in front of its house in order to improve its image on campus.

The administrative – let’s call him Mr. Z – was assigned to serve as a liaison between Residential Education and Sigma Chi. At first, Mr. Z was supportive and helpful, explaining to the fraternity often obscure bureaucratic processes.

But his demeanor changed one night in Autumn 2017.

The fraternity had invited Mr. Z to dinner, during which he “offhandedly suggested” that the American flag flown in front of the Sigma Chi house be removed.

Mr. Z urged Sigma Chi to consider the image being presented to the rest of campus by flying the flag out front. Lozano understood the administrator to imply that the American flag was intimidating, aggressive or alienating, and made others uncomfortable, and that Mr. Z found the mere sight of the American flag to be offensive.

Lozano recounted that the more the house talked about Mr. Z’s suggestion, the more it bothered them. Many found his proposal to take down the flag “weird”. The remark was out of the blue and incongruent with the rapport the fraternity had shared with Mr. Z. Furthermore, the fraternity wondered since when is an American flag flown at an institution in the United States offensive?

In fact, American flags adorned buildings near Sigma Chi and on campus, including:

  • Stanford’s Post Office right down the road from Sigma Chi.
  • Green Library’s Bing Wing.
  • Memorial Auditorium, which commemorates fallen Stanford soldiers since WWI.

Furthermore, Lozano noted that Mr. Z raised no objections to the Dominican flag flown by a student from his bedroom window in Sigma Chi or to the Palestinian flag hung across the street at Columbae.

To Sigma Chi’s credit, the fraternity not only declined to remove the American flag from its house, they replaced it with an even bigger one — from a 3×5 ft. flag to a 4×6 ft. flag. The former flag was then framed and placed on display inside the house. In Lozano’s words, Sigma Chi’s decision was a “silent but visible protest” against the classification of the American flag as a potentially stigmatizing symbol by a member of the Stanford administration.

And the upshot?

Sigma Chi is gone. The fraternity was shut down last May and no longer exists at Stanford University. (Breitbart)

Stanford Reviews executive director Antigone Xenopoulos concludes:

This series of events, known to few, is concerning on multiple levels. One can imagine a justification for opposing a foreign flag being flown on one’s own soil, though I believe that such a condemnation would be ultra-nationalist and antagonistic. One could also reasonably consider the display of an authoritarian regime’s flag to be insulting and hostile – be it a flag representing Nazi Germany, The Confederacy, or Apartheid South Africa. One can likewise anticipate the classification of a sectarian flag as illegal – be it that of Catalonian or Chechen separatists. However, there is no reason why hoisting the American flag, on American soil, at an American institution, is offensive.

Every individual – American or not – has a right to take issue with any and all policies and actions that the U.S. government takes. I am not discouraging criticism of, protest against, or opposition to U.S. government policies. In fact, I encourage such scrutiny. To classify the American flag on American soil as offensive or jingoistic, however, is an entirely separate phenomenon which implies the condemnation of the United States at large.

There is an evident aversion amongst private institutions in the Bay Area to affiliate or partner with the American government. Be it Google employees protesting collaboration with the military on AI development, the absence of the national anthem at Stanford’s 2018 graduation ceremony, the elimination of the American flag from student organization logos, or Stanford’s framing itself as a global rather than American institution, the pattern is clear. Affiliation or partnership with the U.S. government is neither popular nor sexy. Patriotism in the Bay [San Francisco Bay Area] is not praised; indeed, at this rate of pariah-hood, it may soon perish.

However, the presently taboo nature of national pride is shortsighted. The distinction between our timeless political institutions (and their hallowed symbols) and the country’s leaders and policies at any given moment in history is elementary but crucial. Condemnations of patriotism fail to recognize that the United States’ institutions have and will continue to outlive unpopular leaders. This fact alone is cause for significant national pride. The vilification of our nation and its symbols is damning for the social fabric of American society. The current political climate has destroyed the last remnants of civic unity and patriotism.

But enough with the ominous platitudes. Next time you hear someone degrade a symbol of the United States – whether in the form of a flag, the Constitution, or the national anthem – you can defend the principles of this nation through oration or just go out and, like Sigma Chi, buy a bigger one.

UN: abortion & euthanasia should be universal human rights; one world government in 12 years

Inés San Martin reports for Crux, Nov. 15, 2018, that the United Nations Human Rights Committee wants to make abortion and “assisted suicide” — a euphemism for euthanasia — a univeral human right.

A “General Comment” is a UN agency’s interpretation of the provisions of the treaties to which it is a party.

According to a draft “General Comment” of the UN Human Rights Committee’s International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, UN member governments:

  • Must decriminalize abortion for women and abortionists.
  • Must guarantee “safe, legal and effective” access to abortion when the life of the pregnant woman is at risk, or when carrying the pregnancy to term could cause her “pain or suffering” as in the cases of rape or incest.
  • Must remove barriers that deny access to a safe abortion, “including barriers caused as a result of the exercise of conscientious objection by individual medical providers.” In other words, medical providers must be forced to perform abortion, regardless of their religious or moral objection.
  • Guarantee girls’ and women’s access to post-abortion health care “in all circumstances, and on a confidential basis.”
  • Guarantee access by “boys and girls” to a wide range of affordable contraceptive methods.
  • Allow medical professionals to “facilitate the termination of life of afflicted adults, such as those who are terminally ill, who experience severe physical or mental pain and suffering and who wish to die with dignity.”

An earlier version of the draft was read in July 2017, during the 120th session of the Human Rights Committee and made available online by the UN. “All interested stakeholders” were invited to comment on the draft. Although many pro-life groups submitted comments, their views are disregarded as the current version of the draft, as of October 31, shows that the language calling for governments to guarantee access to abortion and “assisted suicide” remains.

Meanwhhile, writing for American Thinker, Oct. 27, 2018, E. Jeffrey Ludwig reminds us that in 2015, the UN issued a program for world government, entitled Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 14,883-words document has 91 numbered sections addressing issues under the five headings of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership; and contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to improve life on the planet.

The earlier UN ideas and ideals of rights, freedom, equality, and justice are now subsumed under “sustainability”. The UN World Commission on Environment and Development defines “sustainable development” as:

  • Development “that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” — whatever that means.
  • “Environmentalism” — preventing the depletion of scarce planetary resources.
  • The Marxist axiom that society should be organized around the idea of “from each according to his ability to each according to his needs.”

Ludwig warns:

The entire “Transforming Our World” document is cast in a stream of consciousness of pious platitudes for a utopian future. It is an outsize utopian dream. Five of the 17 items pertain to the environment.  There are goals for the cities, for women, for the poor, and even for life under the water. Absolutely no sphere of human activity is exempt from control by the UN….

The one-worlders of the 1950s and early 1960s are now in the UN driver’s seat, and they have made their move. The overlay of Marxist talk about “meeting needs” has moved to center stage. The UN has assigned itself a time frame for moving forward in its plan for planetary hegemony.

This projected transformation detailing (yet without details) a new world order of environmental responsibility and a significant reduction of poverty and hunger never speaks to the practical dimension of vast manipulations of people by cynical leaders and ignorant bureaucrats who hold their positions through terrorism and bribery. They never discuss incompetence and corruption, twin brothers in the family of venality. The document portrays a sincere world where all those in power want to help humanity despite the daily evidence of the selfishness, corruption, murderous intents, devilish manipulations, thefts, personal immoralities, hatreds, and utter depravity of many governmental leaders in every country in the world, and among the leaders of business as well. Is not the Agenda for Sustainable Development itself one of those devilish manipulations?

The sustainability ideal is not wedded to a Christian worldview; instead, individual liberty is submerged in a scientifically determined collectivist mindset with final decisions in the hands of the devilish, all-knowing Big Brothers. The relevance of the individual is downplayed. It is being put forward by a UN that is no longer pro-western, a much larger body than existed in 1945. Will you accept it, or is it time, more than ever before, to begin rethinking our membership in that unsustainable body?

Go vote for America!

From Wayne Allyn Root’s “Vegas Oddsmaker Predicts GOP Upset,” Townhall, Nov. 5, 2018:

This is my final column before the midterm election. So, this former Vegas oddsmaker turned national political commentator has a few predictions and common sense observations to make.

Back in 2016 I predicted a Trump victory when no one else did. Every poll showed Trump would lose by a wide margin. Nate Silver of the NY Times predicted Hillary’s chances of winning at 92%. These pollsters make their living by polling actual human beings. I don’t. So how did I know?

Simple. First, size matters. You could see it in the rallies. Trump would attract eight hour lines and 10,000 or more attendees at wild, intense rallies all over America. I should know. I was opening speaker for six Trump campaign events here in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile Hillary was attracting 100 to 200 attendees at a rally here in Vegas. I could fit Hillary’s rallies in my living room.  The same story held true across America. That was my first reason for realizing Trump was going to pull a huge upset that few saw coming.

Part Duex was also simple. Trump was “the whisper candidate.” Everywhere I went, people whispered in my ear, “I’m with you. I’m for Trump.” They wouldn’t tell pollsters. They wouldn’t put up yard signs. No bumper stickers on their car. No mention of their support of Trump around the office watercooler. But they whispered to me. The pollsters never had a chance.

Don’t look now, but it’s all happening again. Nate Silver says Democrats have a 80%+ chance of winning the House. Cook Report says Democrats will win the House by 40 seats. All the experts say it’s over- Democrats will win. I’ll go out on a limb and disagree again.

I see Florida Democrat Governor candidate Andrew Gillum holding a rally with Bernie Sanders and the whole place is empty.

Barack Obama could not fill a high school gym in Milwaukee.

I witnessed firsthand Joe Biden and Obama at separate events here in Las Vegas playing to small crowds.

Meanwhile I was opening speaker for President Trump’s event in Las Vegas last month- with 10,000 waiting in line for hours in a place where no one cares much about politics. This is a phenomenon.

Does that sound like the GOP is losing 40 seats? Dream on delusional Democrats.

Then there’s “the whispers.” Nothing has changed. Trump has fulfilled almost all of his campaign promises. He is the only politician in history who did exactly what he promised. And those same voters are whispering to me again- they love Trump now, more than ever.

Then there’s common sense. The Trump economy is BOOMING.

The latest results are out- 250,000 more jobs last month, far above what was expected. The lowest unemployment in half a century. The number of Americans employed is the highest EVER. Almost 500,000 new manufacturing jobs under Trump. The kind Obama claimed would never happen again. 1000 new manufacturing jobs a day last month- the best results since the 1990’s.

And most importantly, wages grew by a remarkable 3.1%- the most in a decade. Who in their right mind would vote against THAT?

That could be why Trump’s approval rating among blacks is now 40%. If only white liberals weren’t blind, deaf and really dumb.

Most importantly, Trump has brilliantly kept the emotional issue of illegal immigration front and center. He wants to block the caravan, end birthright citizenship and make it much harder for illegal aliens to claim asylum. The polls are out- 65% of likely voters in swing districts across the USA agree with Trump. The middle class will come out in record numbers for Trump. Bet on it.

In the 2014 midterm election in Texas 1.7 million voted early. This year early voting in Texas numbered over 4.3 million. With a booming economy and an illegal alien invasion in the headlines, you think they’re coming out for Democrats?

No way Jose.

I’ll go out on a limb again. I’ll put my gut instincts up against every poll and pollster and political “expert.” All of them…all of them…say the House is lost. But they don’t have a clue what’s happening. I predict they’re all wrong again. The Silent Majority is whispering again- and they love Trump. They support Trump. They will reward Trump.

I’ll go out on a limb again to predict another upset for the GOP on Tuesday. We will expand our Senate majority by 3 to 6 seats. It will be very close but, the GOP will hold the House. America stays bright red- again

Democrats will be in shock and mourning. The pollsters got it all wrong again.

And Wednesday morning will be the busiest day for psychiatrists and psychologists in the history of America.

Be confident, patriots.

Go forth and vote to take our beloved country back from the hate-America, no-border fake-news media jackals, Hollyweirdos, globalists, and satanists.

Pray for America.
