Women – anti-Trumpers – Are Boycotting Ivanka Trump's Brand

And how many of these womyn boycotting Ivanka have supported Broaddrick, Jones or Wiley? Yeah, didn’t think so.
ivanka-trump
From Cosmopolitan Magazine: Lindsey Ledford, a 29-year-old student at the University of Maryland-University College, is a self-described “Maxxinista” who shops at her local College Park, Maryland, T.J. Maxx at least three times per week. But about a week ago, her favorite store abruptly lost her business: Ledford was checking out a black blouse with a stripe down the center when, suddenly, she felt like her throat was closing and she couldn’t breathe.
 “My first thought was, Grab them by the pussy. We can do anything we want. Don’t even ask,” Ledford told Cosmopolitan.com.
The blouse was triggering traumatic flashbacks to physical abuse she’d suffered in the past, and to times she’d been grabbed or groped by men without her consent. “None of them ever asked how I felt, what I was thinking, or what I wanted. They didn’t wait,” she wrote in a flurry of tweets at T.J. Maxx after fleeing the store. “That is what ‘Trump’ means to me,” she told me: complete disregard for women and their bodies. “It doesn’t matter if Ivanka’s name is in front of it, or Donald’s.”

disregard

Speaking of disregard for women…


Ledford is now one of a passionate group of women joining forces to boycott both the Ivanka Trump fashion and accessories brand and, unless they drop Ivanka’s line from stores, the retailers who carry it. The list includes T.J. Maxx, Amazon.com, Zappos, Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, DSW, Macy’s, Marshall’s, and Saks Off Fifth. “As much as I love shopping at T.J. Maxx, I can’t stomach seeing that name front and center,” she said. “Supporting a brand — Trump — that condones sexual assault and makes excuses for it is wrong.” (Ledford also logged a complaint with a phone call to customer service; she said a rep politely listened and promised to pass along her feedback.)

Shannon Coulter on a mission against Ivanka


The boycott was hatched on Twitter by Shannon Coulter, CEO of a boutique marketing agency in San Francisco, on October 10, in the wake of Trump’s now-infamous Access Hollywood tape; since then, Coulter’s tweets about the boycott, including tweets aimed at the retailers who carry Ivanka Trump products, have earned an estimated 1 million impressions on Twitter, according to her analytics report.
For a long stretch of the campaign, “[women] were ready to give Ivanka a pass because she’s his daughter and it’s hard to be objective about your dad. But the Trump tape just sent people over the edge,” Coulter told me. “I think [women] took particular offense, as I did, to the fact that Ivanka tries to make feminism a part of her brand but is standing by, as an official campaign surrogate, a guy who is an alleged serial sexual assaulter of women. The disconnect was too big. And they were ready to speak up about it and flex their consumer power about it.”
I'm sure this daughter can be objective about her father

A father and daughter who the proggies always give a pass


Though Ivanka insisted this week at a Fortune Most Powerful Women event: “I am not a surrogate. I’m a daughter,” the lines between Ivanka and her father’s incendiary politics have been blurred beyond recognition for some former fans and customers. Ivanka and her eponymous line are “inextricably tied to a movement that denigrates women,” Amy Andelora, a 52-year-old high school teacher in Mesa, Arizona, told me.
Days after the tape’s release, Andelora tweeted a plea to Neiman Marcus, asking the retailer to remove Ivanka’s line. She is also boycotting her favorite store, Nordstrom, where she says she formerly spent “hundreds of dollars per month,” because, similar to Ledford, she felt triggered by a pair of Ivanka shoes.
drama
“It’s a visceral response, when I see the name ‘Ivanka’ nestled inside a shoe,” she said. ”The man who assaulted me used almost exactly the method Donald Trump described in his conversation with Billy Bush. I can’t see a Trump-related label without remembering what happened to me three years ago in a house I couldn’t escape.
Though some customers are defecting, Ivanka Trump’s eponymous line — an estimated $100 million operation in the last fiscal year, according to a July report in Forbes — has thrived in spite of her father Donald Trump’s wildly controversial presidential campaign. (Trump has made damning comments about women, Mexican and Muslim immigrants, and Gold Star families, while Ivanka, an executive vice-president at the Trump Organization, has consistently defended him as a “feminist,” insisting she knows him to be different.) As a private company, the Ivanka Trump brand does not release sales or profit numbers. But an Ivanka Trump brand PR representative told Cosmopolitan.com that sales and revenue grew 37 percent over 2015.
“Over the past year many more women have discovered and become loyal to the brand, leading us to experience a significant year over year revenue growth,” said Abigail Klem, chief brand officer through the representative.
According to annual and quarterly reports by her licensing company GIII, sales at the Ivanka Trump brand grew $29.4 million over last year, and increased $11.8 million in the last six months. “Whether or not people are saying good things or bad things, her name is getting out there,” Madeline Hurley, a retail industry analyst at market research firm IBIS World, said. “She can’t really pay for the press that she’s getting.”
But for some, the fact that Ivanka’s business has appeared to profit from the exposure of the Trump campaign is all the more reason to boycott. “[Ivanka] is supporting one of the most offensive, sexist, racist, xenophobic human beings to ever run for president,” Ledford said. “She is making a buck off it.”
Though Ivanka said at this week’s Fortune event that she’s “always tried to maintain complete separation between [her brand] and the campaign,” Ledford and others point to what they feel is a notable example to the contrary: after introducing her father at the Republican National Convention (in a speech filled with traditionally Democratic policies like equal pay, paid leave and affordable childcare), Ivanka tweeted a Macys.com link to buy the blush-pink shift she was wearing from her collection with the line: “Shop Ivanka’s look from her #RNC speech.”

Don’t you DARE inquire as to where to buy this dress…(at least it wasn’t blue!)


“Do I think it’s appropriate for her to tweet out a link to where you can buy the dress that she was wearing? No, definitely not,” said Dini von Mueffling, founder of an eponymous public relations and strategy agency in New York. “Instead of tweeting about her dress, I think the message that she should have put out there was how honored she was to be part of a moment in our nation’s history, and to be part of trying to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.”
Gloria Ratcliffe, once a faithful customer, threw out a pair of Ivanka Trump pumps after another of Ivanka’s high-profile campaign appearances — when she attended the second debate in support of her father, just days after the release of the now-infamous tape. Ratcliffe also decided against buying bridesmaids dresses for her spring wedding from Nordstrom, as well as shoes for the wedding party from DSW, because both carry the Ivanka Trump brand.
Some anti-hate attire for the wedding, perhaps?

Some anti-hate attire for Ratcliffe’s wedding, perhaps?


“My wedding is a day of love. I’m not going to wear clothes that represent hate,” Ratcliffe said. “[Trump] doesn’t respect women at all, and I’m not giving my money to people who are supporting him, because it’s going to inevitably end up in his pocket.” (Ivanka’s line is a sub-brand of the Trump Organization).
So far, none of the retailers who carry the Ivanka Trump brand have dropped the line in response to the boycott. Cosmopolitan.com reached out to 12 retailers; only two replied. A representative for Nordstrom said: “We have received some feedback from customers, though we don’t currently have plans to stop offering this brand.” (When asked about the nature of that feedback, the representative didn’t answer). Zappos declined to comment.
But Coulter and the women boycotting Ivanka’s brand aren’t giving up. Ledford, for instance, is still steering clear of T.J. Maxx: In addition to voting for Hillary Clinton and donating to her campaign, Ledford feels the boycott is another way of taking concrete political action. It’s “something I can do to say ‘enough is enough,’” she says. “I can not give my money to them.”
Coulter continues tweeting, every day, multiple times per day, and calling retailer customer service lines to complain about the Ivanka brand. She says she has received backlash for the boycott on Twitter — some men, in particular, argue that Ivanka shouldn’t be held accountable because they believe she’s being manipulated by PR people or by her father.
“I don’t think that’s true,” Coulter said. “She’s the head of an international, $100 million dollar a year brand. She’s sophisticated. I think she’s smarter than Donald Trump. Part of why I started the boycott is because I respect her as a businesswoman. We should hold her to a higher standard.
And just how many liberal women were triggered by this?

Exit question: How many liberal women were triggered by this fine example of a “higher standard?”

Secretary of State John Kerry: The Bible commands us to confront 'climate change' and especially protect Muslims

On September 3, 2014, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be special representative to Muslim communities, Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, says it is the United States’ “responsibility” to “confront climate change” and to especially protect Muslims from its effects.
In the video snippet below, Kerry says:

“When Shaarik started drafting the U. S. strategy on religious leader and faith community engagement, he began with two words: Religion matters. We’re making that a mantra here in the State Department, in our foreign policy. Our [U.S. and Muslims] fates are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today. Our fates are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain his first creation — Earth, the planet. Before God created man, he created heavens and earth. Confronting climate change is in the long run one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in Scriptures, clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship for Earth. And for me and for many of us today, that responsibility comes from God.”


There are so many things wrong with Kerry’s speech, I’m at a loss where to begin. Here are some:

  1. “Religion matters”? By their behavior and in countless ways, the Obama administration makes clear that the only “religion” that “matters” is Islam. As an example: of the 12,587 Syrian refugees “resettled” in the U.S. in fiscal year 2016, 99.2% (or 12,486) are Muslims. Only 0.5% (or 68) are Christians. (CNS News)
  2. Where in the Bible does it say that Earth is God’s “first creation”?
  3. There was no Islam and no Muslims when the Bible was written, for good reason, as Islam was founded more than half a century after Christ.
  4. There is no mention of “climate change” anywhere in the Bible.
  5. How are Muslim-majority countries — most of which are desert countries — “most vulnerable” to “climate change”? Mark my words: Kerry is preparing the groundwork for Muslim countries to demand “reparations” for being victims of “climate change”. See “Third World countries want more than $10oB a year as ‘climate change’ reparations“.
  6. And lastly, there is no man-made “climate change” or what used to called “global warming”. The global warming Nazis switched their terminology to “climate change” because scientific data show there has been no global warming in the past 10 years and more. (See “UK’s national weather service: Global cooling for last 10 years”.) In fact, because of the lack of solar activity, solar scientists now say there will be another Little Ice Age in 2030. The last one was 300 years ago. (Independent)

YouTube commenter streetrace442 says it best:

“Really?  This coming from the very party who one, doesn’t believe the Bible. Two: Believes God can be voted out of existence. Three: Doesn’t believe He exist to begin with. Four: Never has read the Bible.”

By “Believes God can be voted out of existence,” streetrace442 was referring to the 2012 Democratic National Convention when, in a voice vote, the delegates thrice voted to exclude any mention of God from the Democratic Party platform.

Why Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton in a landslide

Hillary For Prison 2016

Why Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton in Landslide

by A. Phillip Charles, The Politik, August 4, 2016
WASHINGTON – The Politik is predicting that on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Donald J. Trump will win a landslide election, to become the 45th President of the United States.
2012 and 2016
In 2012, Barack Obama won reelection with 65.9 million votes.  Mitt Romney finished 5 million votes behind, at 60.9 million.  That earned Obama 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206.
Just four years earlier, Obama had become the first African American ever to be elected president of the United States, winning the highest amount of votes (69.5 million) by any presidential candidate in history.  Despite his historic nature and relative popularity, his margin of victory decreased from 2008. Consequently, Obama became the first incumbent in seven decades to get reelected with fewer electoral votes and a lower popular vote percentage.
Obama lost approximately 3.6 million votes from 2008 to 2012.  Romney gained slightly on 2008 candidate John McCain’s 59.9 million.
The takeaway from the 2012 election, as it relates to 2016, is that Barack Obama was a once in a lifetime type of candidate.  The first African-American candidate.  He was young.  He was fresh and his candidacy embodied the sort of ‘change’ that so many dissatisfied American’s felt following a long war in Iraq and the financial collapse of the U.S. housing market.
And despite all that popularity, enthusiasm and African-American turnout, he still only attained 51.1% of the popular vote in 2012.
Hillary Clinton stands no chance of besting the numbers of Barack Obama from 2012.  She is far less popular.  She has far less charisma.  She does not inspire enthusiasm, and she comes with a lifetime of corrupt decisions and illegal behavior.
Primary Changes by the Numbers
In 2008, the last time the Democrats did not have an incumbent on the ticket, they had approximately 38 million Primary voters.  In 2016, that number slipped to approximately 30 million.  A loss of 8 million primary voters.
In 2008, Republicans had 21 million primary voters.  In 2012, the number slipped to 19 million.  In 2016 however, the GOP had over 30 million primary voters – approximately 9-10 million more than 2008.
That is a change of approximately 17-18 million voters in favor of the GOP.
John McCain lost by 10 million votes.
Mitt Romney lost by 5 million votes.
And since 2008, the Democrats have lost 8 million primary voters while the GOP has gained about 10 million.
Donald Trump the Rock Star
Trump is the most popular and captivating candidate the party has nominated since Ronald Reagan.  A successful businessman, Trump has been in the world spotlight for years and became a household name over the past decade with a successful reality TV show on NBC, ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Celebrity Apprentice’.
His name adorns buildings, casinos and resorts all over the world.
Everywhere he has gone, for over a year now, throngs of fans and voters stand in lines thousands deep and hours long.  In early August, in a Daytona Beach arena, Trump drew 8,000 screaming fans, while Hillary could only muster a few hundred the same day at a high school gym in Colorado.  Later that night, in Jacksonville, Trump drew 15,000 people.  This is a normal occurrence on the campaign trail.
Again, Hillary inspires no confidence in voters.  Donald Trump has to turn away far more fans that Clinton can even draw at a campaign event.  This is meaningful as it relates to who actually will make an effort to vote.
To prove how far his national appeal is, Trump won big in every region of the map:  Northeast, Southeast, South, Midwest, Rust Belt, Northwest, West and Southwest.  He won more primary votes than any candidate in the history of the party, and he did so with 17 candidates running.
He won a landslide primary, in a year in which three very popular elected officials from the big states of Texas, Florida and Ohio were running against him.  That alone made it impossible for almost any candidate besides Ted Cruz in Texas, Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio in Florida and John Kasich in Ohio, to win.  Not only did Trump win, but did so with ease.
The Democrats’ Minority Problem
One myth among the typical media narrative is that Republicans have a minority voter problem.  In reality, it’s the Democrats that do.  In 2012, when Barack Obama won only 51% of the vote, it took him winning the black vote 93-6, and it also required historically high turnout from that group.
Hillary, at minimum, needs to match Obama’s 93-6 margin with black voters, and needs every single black voter that turned out in 2012.  That isn’t going to happen.  She may achieve the margin.  She won’t come close to getting the same turnout.
The Democrats have an electoral problem, in that they need 95% of the black vote, with large turnout, just to win a general election.
Not only is a problem today, but it’s a far bigger problem for them in the future.  As groups of a demographic grow in size, they also become more diverse.  The chances are that Blacks will vote less and less for Democrat in the future, as they grow in size and diversify from evolution.
The GOP has been Destroying Democrats in elections since 2009
When it comes to elections, the GOP has been faring better against Democrats over the last 7 years, than they ever have previously.  In 2010, the GOP took back the House of Representatives with a 63-seat pickup, and also grabbed control of 29 of 50 governorships and gained 690 seats in state legislatures.
Then in 2014, The Republicans won 16 seats from Democrats, while only three Republican-held seats turned Democratic. The Republicans achieved their largest majority in the House since 1928.  Combined with the Republican gains made in 2010, the total number of Democratic-held House seats lost under Barack Obama’s presidency in midterm elections rose to 77 with the 2014 midterms.
Other than Barack Obama’s unimpressive reelection against Mitt Romney in 2012, the Democrats have been losing every type of election imaginable to Republicans.
The Variable Factors
Hillary Clinton is also on the losing end of almost all variables that play in elections.

  1. She is the incumbent party seeking a third consecutive term, which is rarely a good thing
  1. The Economy is not producing with 90 million unemployed Americans and only 1.2 % growth.
  1. ISIS and Terrorism is striking all over the western world and within the United States borders.  The Democrats refuse to even say the phrase “Islamic Terrorism.”
  1. Nearly 80% of the country thinks the United States is going in the wrong direction and Hillary Clinton has been directly involved in government for the last 25 years.  In these times, experience is not a good thing.
  1. Trump is unabashedly pro-American while the Democrats give off a perception that they are embarrassed by being associated as an American.
  1. Trump has taken strong positions on two issues that are driving massive new voters to him:  Immigration and Free Trade.  Both of these issues hit right at the heart of the forgotten middle class, that has seen their jobs traded away oversees by their own elected officials.
  1. Over the past 70 or so years, typically the more physically overpowering ticket wins.  Trump/Pence or Clinton/Kaine?  Who seems tougher to you?
  1. Her husband Bill Clinton never received even half of the vote during his two Electoral College victories in 1992 and 1996.  The Clintons are not as popular as the media would have you believe.
  1. Hillary doesn’t have the heart of her party’s voters.  Bernie Sanders did.  And unfortunately for the Democrats, the heart of their party’s voters lost.
  1. Trump, on the hand, is the heart of the party and beat the powerful interests groups trying to steal it from him and his record setting amount of voters.

The Secret-Trump Vote
Don’t even bother looking at a poll.  If they were any accurate or valuable at predicting, then the people who ran them would be billionaires.
As we learned from the DNC-WikiLeaks scandal, the Democratic Party and Mainstream Media manipulate polls for nothing other than headlines and talking points, meant to drive narratives and suppress Republican turnout.
Instead, think of the facts.
In 2012, the voting age population was 235 million, but only 129 million voted.
Both parties left a possible 106 million votes on the table.
Because of Donald Trump’s candidacy, all the rules have been thrown out.  We’ve seen that few of the old political playbook tricks work against him.  Money being spent by his opponents have all gone to waste.
We saw every single professional political pundit in the country get the entire primary season wrong – on both sides.
The media and their phony polling consultants don’t have any clue what turnout will look like.  If they did, they wouldn’t have bungled their Trump and Clinton predictions so badly in the primaries.
What we do know is that Trump is attracting voters from all over the map and into the Republican fold, just to vote for him.  It’s how he unexpectedly massacred 16 opponents in the primary.
It’s how he will massacre Hillary Clinton in the general election.
When the media tells you that this race is close or that Hillary is leading, just simply laugh it all off.
This election is already over and Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States.
Hillary for Prison 2016
Phillip Charles’ analysis and figures are compelling, but Hillary and the Dems will resort to massive voter fraud, and the GOP is crippled by that curséd 1982 Consent Decree that forbids the RNC to challenge voter fraud and, in so doing, effectively gives the Democrats a carte blanche to commit voter fraud.
If you haven’t read it, please see “Why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud” and weep . . . .

Franklin Graham: America will not come back

I received this as an email that’s gone viral. It’s a speech purportedly delivered by Christian evangelist Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, in January 2015.
TruthOrFiction has verified the speech to be true.
Below is the email in its entirety.
Franklin Graham

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote:
“The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind. A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.
You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status. People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order. The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.
Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness.

What do you think? Take our poll!

Ted Cruz's undisclosed $1M loan from Goldman Sachs

Heidi and Ted Cruz, March 23, 2015, Lynchburg, VA. (Photo Paul J. Richards/AFP/Getty Images)

Heidi and Ted Cruz, March 23, 2015, Lynchburg, VA. (Photo Paul J. Richards/AFP/Getty Images)


Senator Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, is head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of the Wall Street investment bank Goldman Sachs, on a temporary “leave” because of Ted’s presidential campaign.

Heidi Cruz is also a former investment banker for J.P. Morgan and a “historical member” of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), for which she served as a member of the CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force on the Future of North America, which a North American Union. (See “Is Ted Cruz an advocate of a North American Union?“)

Although Heidi Cruz presently is on leave, she was fully working for Goldman Sachs in 2012 when Ted obtained a low-interest $1 million loan from her employer for his senatorial campaign. To top it off, Ted Cruz did not disclose the loan as he is required by law.
The New York Times reports on Jan. 13, 2016, that campaign finance reports show that in the critical weeks before the May 2012 GOP primary, Ted Cruz put “personal funds” totaling $960,000 into his Senate campaign. Two months later, shortly before a scheduled runoff election, he added more, bringing the total to $1.2 million — “which is all we had saved,” as Cruz described it in an interview.
But a review of personal financial disclosures that Cruz filed later with the Senate does not show a liquidation of assets that would have accounted for all the money he spent on his campaign. What it does show, however, is that in the first half of 2012, Ted and Heidi Cruz obtained a low-interest loan from Goldman Sachs, as well as another one from Citibank. The loans totaled $750,000 and eventually increased to $1 million before being paid down later that year. Both loans had floating interest rates around 3%, generally in line with rates available to wealthy borrowers at that time.

Neither loan appears in reports filed by Cruz’s senate campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Candidates are required to disclose the source of money they borrow to finance their campaigns. Other campaigns have been investigated and fined for failing to make such disclosures, which are intended to inform voters and prevent candidates from receiving special treatment from lenders.

A spokeswoman for Cruz’s presidential campaign, Catherine Frazier, acknowledged that the loan from Goldman Sachs, drawn against the value of the Cruzes’ brokerage account, was a source of money for the Senate race, but insisted that the failure to report the loan was “inadvertent” and that there had been no attempt to hide anything. Frazier did not address whether the Citibank loan was used also for Cruz’s Senate race.

Former election commission lawyer who specializes in campaign finance law Kenneth Gross, however, disagrees.

Gross said that listing a bank loan in an annual Senate ethics report — which deals only with personal finances — would not satisfy the requirement that it be promptly disclosed to election officials during a campaign: “They’re two different reporting regimes. The law says if you get a loan for the purpose of funding a campaign, you have to show the original source of the loan, the terms of the loan and you even have to provide a copy of the loan document to the Federal Election Commission.”

Specifically, in failing to report the two bank loans to the FEC, Cruz violated:

  • 52 USC 30104 (b)(2) (6), which requires the committee of a federal candidate to disclose on a report filed “loans made by or guaranteed by the candidate”; and
  • 52 USC 30104(b)(4)(d), which requires the reporting of “repayment of loans made by or guaranteed by the candidate”.

ZeroHedge points out that someone will have to file an official complaint against Cruz, and the FEC could impose fines. But if evidence emerges that his failure to disclose the loans was ‘knowing and willful,’ he could be criminally prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice, according to campaign finance experts.
Aside from Ted Cruz’s dishonesty in not reporting the loans to the FEC, there is also the matter of his hypocrisy.

In 2012 when he ran for the Senate as a darling of the Tea Party, and in his current presidential campaign, Ted Cruz presents himself as a populist for the “little man,” against Wall Street bailouts and the influence of big banks in Washington. Recently, when asked about the political clout of Goldman Sachs in particular, he replied:

“Like many other players on Wall Street and big business, they seek out and get special favors from government.”

As financial analyst Martin Armstrong puts it:

The dishonesty here is that Cruz has pretended to stand against the bankers…. I am sorry. But Cruz is bought and paid for and would be in the pocket of the New York Banks no different than Hillary, Bush, or the rest of them who take money from this crowd. You do not forget to report a loan from Goldman Sachs when your wife is a managing director. Come on. How stupid do we have to be to entertain this excuse?

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.

Obama to let in 10,000 Syrian refugees despite no way of identifying terrorists

Obama did say when he was first elected in 2008 that he meant to “fundamentally transform” America.
The millions who voted, twice, to send this man to the White House will have to answer to their conscience for what they inflicted on America and the world.

The time for Civil Disobedience is here: Kentucky county clerk imprisoned for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals

On November 12, 2012, a week after Americans re-elected Barack Obama to the White House, Dr. Paul Kengor mournfully — and presciently — declared a sunset for the culture of life in the Untied [sic] States. He wrote:

The battle to end legal abortion in America is over. The election and reelection of Barack Obama has made Roe v. Wade a permanent part of American life, with tens to hundreds of millions of unborn babies the coming casualties. Barack Obama got two Supreme Court picks in his first term and will get more in his second.
But it’s worse than that. All of us will now be handmaidens in this destruction. In the not-so-distant past, abortion advocates didn’t demand that all of us forcibly pay for their abortions—and for Planned Parenthood, contraception, and embryo destruction. They weren’t demanding that taxpayer-funded contraception become a new “entitlement.” That, too, has changed under Barack Obama, and we will not be able to conscientiously object as faithful [Christians]….
This is a devastating defeat. The heights of abortion absurdity will be thrust to once unimaginable depths.

Little did Dr. Kengor know then what we now know that the “heights of abortion” involved the harvesting of organs and tissue from still-alive aborted late-term babies in the taxpayer-funded slaughter-houses of Planned Parenthood. (See “Planned Parenthood horror: Baby’s heart beats during harvesting of his brain”)
Nor did Dr. Kengor anticipate that 2½ years after, the U.S. Supreme Court would rule that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. (See “Judicial Tyranny: Dissenting opinions on Supreme Court’s ruling on homosexual marriage”)
But where Dr. Kengor was wrong was in predicting that “we will not be able to conscientiously object as faithful” Christians. Faithful Christians are doing just that, most notably a brave Kentucky county clerk named Kim Davis.

Four days ago, on September 3, 2015, Kentucky Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples.
Davis has refused to issue marriage licenses for two months since the Supreme Court, by a razor-thin margin of one (5-4), legalized same-sex marriage on June 26, 2015. She argues that her Christian faith — “God’s moral law” — should exempt her from signing the licenses.
U.S. District Judge David L. Bunning jailed Davis for contempt of court — for refusing to follow his order to issue the licenses. Bunning said Davis’ religious beliefs don’t allow her to disobey the law, “Her good faith belief is simply not a viable defense.” Banning said he didn’t make the decision lightly and spoke of his own religious beliefs. But he said that the oath he took, and the oath Davis took, supersedes those beliefs. Bunning also said that it’s not his job or the court’s job, but that of the legislative and executive branches, to write laws or make changes.
Meanwhile, 5 of 6 Rowan County deputy clerks all succumbed and told Judge Banning they would hand out marriage licenses to homosexual couples beginning the next day, Sept. 4. The lone holdout is Davis’ son.

Kim Davis’ attorney Roger Gannam called Judge Banning’s decision “unprecedented.” Gannam said this is the first time in history that an American has been jailed for believing in their conscience, “for having the belief of conscience that marriage is a union between one man and one woman.”
Bunning told Davis she would be jailed until she complied with his order to issue the licenses. Davis said “thank you” before she was led out of the courtroom by a U.S. marshal. Davis says her supporters are raising funds for her, but she herself hasn’t requested any money. (Source)

David Bunning was appointed by Pres. George W. Bush to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky. He is the son of Jim Bunning, who was a U.S. senator from 1999 to 2011. Throughout Davis’s months-long legal battle, Bunning made it clear that he knew his decision to force the Rowan County clerk to follow the law put him at odds with the deeply held personal beliefs of a lot of Americans, himself included. Bunning wrote in his ruling:

“Personal opinions, including my own, are not relevant to today. The idea of natural law superseding this court’s authority would be a dangerous precedent indeed. Our form of government will not survive unless we, as a society, agree to respect the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions, regardless of our personal opinions. Davis is certainly free to disagree with the court’s opinion, as many Americans likely do, but that does not excuse her from complying with it. To hold otherwise would set a dangerous precedent.”

Please pray for Kim Davis.

You now have another reason to avoid JC Penney: Eva Longoria

JC Penney tried to increase sales with their pro-homosexual agenda. That didn’t work out so well. So now they are trying a brilliant new marketing ploy: Selling a line of home goods from a Latina actress who publicly trashes conservatives.

“While it may come as a bit of a surprise, the bedding business is something Longoria has been preparing for since she was young. She told The Dallas Morning News that while growing up in Texas, she would sew her own curtains, duvet covers and pillows. “Decorative pillows were my specialty,” she said. “I used to make them for friends, too.”

In September 2011, she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to gush about Skippy. She then trashed Americans who oppose her idol, calling us a “dangerous” “extremist movement”.
In October 2012, she re-tweeted the following (which she later deleted): “Women, minorities ‘stupid’ to vote for ‘racist/misogynistic’ Romney.” After this tweet, she blamed a Twitter gremlin for shameful retweets and eventually issued the go-to liberal non-apology: “‘sorry if people were offended”.
And because you conservative womyn aren’t smart enough to make up your own minds, she offered this advice in July 2012: “I don’t think it’s a hard choice if you’re a woman,” said Longoria during an Obama campaign event in Colorado over the weekend, according to The Denver Post.  “We have to get out there and tell (others) ‘If you’re a woman, there is no way you can vote Republican.’
I certainly won’t be buying any of her products. This picture sums up appropriately what Longoria makes of herself when she opens her mouth.

Wayne Allyn Root on Obama's Gestapo

Wayne Allyn Root
Obama’s America
Obama is going rogue. By every metric the Obama economy is melting down. We are seeing the beginning stages of another recession at best, or a total economic meltdown at worst.
At the moment there are no decent paying jobs in America. Obama has opened the border and given amnesty to at least 5 million illegal aliens already in the country, thereby putting them in competition with working class and middle class Americans.
Think I’m wrong? Did you know the government is giving businesses a $3000 incentive to hire illegal’s over native-born Americans?
Did you know cities are hiring non-citizens (and even illegal aliens given amnesty by Obama) as policemen? All you need is a work permit. Someone here illegally can wear a badge and enforce the law against you.
Did you think the border crisis was over? Obama’s amnesty has encouraged a new wave of poverty-stricken illegals at the border.
And, in a bankrupt nation with over $18 trillion in debt, Obama has used amnesty to give illegals access to food stamps, free healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, earned income tax credits…and by issuing drivers licenses and Social Security cards they will be able to vote immediately (because States don’t have the technology to tell the difference between a legal citizen or a noncitizen, legal or not).
The Obamacare fiasco gets worse by the day. The middle class is being bankrupted by skyrocketing increases in their health insurance premiums; hospitals are being bankrupted by the flood of illegal aliens accessing services; and the economy will drown in the new debt caused by Obamacare.
Obama’s claim that ISIS is on the run is a proven fraud, ripped bare by America’s embarrassing military withdrawl from Yemen.
Obama is going nuclear in his hatred for Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, force-feeding the world a weak nuclear agreement with Iran that is so bad, even France is fighting for stronger sanctions. Meanwhile Obama threatens to become the first president in history to abandon Israel at the United Nations.
But, I haven’t gotten to the bad part yet. Is it possible the terrible news about the economy, the border, ISIS and Israel is all just a distraction? Because the really important news is that Obama has created a modern-day version of “the Gestapo.”
The Obama government is using an initiative called “Operation Chokepoint” to force legal businesses it doesn’t like out of business, by threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors.
At the same time, the Obama government is urging banks to call the police to report citizens who withdraw $5000 or more from their own bank accounts. Yes, I said banks are urged to call the police, when you withdraw your own money.
This comes at the same time that FEMA announced it will no longer provide FEMA disaster relief funds to states whose Governors deny “climate change.”
And let’s not forget Obama used an FCC party-line vote to take over the Internet and institute sweeping new changes to a system that is working perfectly as the form of communication for most Americans.
Obama’s first goal is clearly massive new taxes on Internet usage, just another way to destroy the middle class and redistribute income. But is his real goal controlling communications on the Internet- specifically the anti-Obama criticism and anti-government message so prevalent on the Internet.
But let’s circle back to the most Gestapo-like Obama initiative ever. It’s called “Operation Chokepoint.” This is your government’s attempt to put morality controls (just like those in Iran) on the American public by shutting down gun stores, precious metals companies, casinos, tobacco distributors, telemarketers, and short-term money lenders.
How can they close legal businesses you ask? By threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors to close accounts for businesses the government doesn’t like. Just like an Iranian Ayatollah, if Obama doesn’t like your business, he will “choke off” your ability to stay in business. Hence the name, “Operation Chokepoint.”
Never forget Obama has been on a 6-year long relentless crusade to raise our taxes and take away our tax deduction for charitable donations, choking off contributions to churches. Yes, Obama is trying to “choke off” the funding that keeps churches in business too.
Why is this happening? First, because Obama despises capitalism. He needs to put prosperous businesses out of business. By murdering the middle class’s ability to prosper, he creates his utopia of equality (ie “shared misery”), making everyone dependent on government in a classless, socialist society. Think Cuba and Venezuela.
Second, there is an obvious reason Obama hates these particular industries. The subtitle of my 2009 book, “The Conscience of a Libertarian” says it all. The subtitle was “Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold, Gambling & Tax Cuts.” Is it a coincidence that virtually every item I mentioned is under attack?
The businesses on the list of “Operation Chokepoint” are all dominated by people that Obama would describe as capitalists, patriots, conservatives, Tea Partiers, Christians and supporters of the Constitution. Not coincidently, those are the same groups targeted by Obama in the IRS scandal.
And then of course, if Obama can’t close your business, or “choke off” your ability to prosper, he can force banks to call the police if you dare to withdraw money from your own account.
Folks this is eerily reminiscent of The Gestapo, or the Soviet KGB, or the East German Stasi.
Is this the America you want? The NSA spying on your every move…the federal government in charge of your healthcare and now your free speech on the Internet…the IRS auditing enemies and critics of the government…the federal government forcing legal businesses they deem “unacceptable” out of business…and banks spying on their own customers and being forced to call the police when customers withdraw too much of their own money.
Yes, under Barack Hussein Obama the Gestapo is alive and well in the former “Land of the Free.”
