UNMASKING POWER’S ABUSE OF POWER

Sep 22, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

President Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Power was reportedly “unmasking” Americans almost on a daily basis right up to President Trump’s inauguration, which bolsters Trump’s claim that the Obama administration tried to rig last year’s election by spying on the then-GOP candidate’s campaign.

Fox News is reporting that in the closing months of the Obama administration, Irish-born Power reportedly made more than 260 requests to identify Americans whose names turned up in foreign intelligence collection, a process called unmasking. Why an envoy to the United Nations would be involved in unmasking anyone, in this case focusing on the private communications of hundreds of Americans, has not been explained.


Trump: socialism is for losers

Sep 20, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

President Trump said so many good things in his speech to the United Nations.

Left-wingers’ heads must have exploded when he spoke this bit of truth to power:

The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.

Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for action. All people deserve a government that cares for their safety, their interests and their well-being, including their prosperity.

 


BLACK LIVES MATTER OCCUPIES ST. LOUIS

Sep 20, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

St. Louis was rocked Monday by a third consecutive night of riots organized and carried out by Black Lives Matter after a white cop was acquitted Friday of first-degree murder in the death of a notorious black criminal.

At time of writing, ABC News was reporting that “more than 160 people have now been now arrested, as police have been aggressively arresting more people to curb property destruction and police assaults.


Black Lives Matter Targets Jefferson

Sep 18, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

The vandalization of a statute of University of Virginia founder Thomas Jefferson by students and Black Lives Matter rioters suggests the Left is escalating the ugly Cultural Revolution-style upheaval that President Obama encouraged in office.

This iconoclastic insurrectionism is spreading, as angry left-wing mobs topple statues of figures from the past they dislike. In Chicago, Bishop James Dukes of Liberation Christian Center is demanding that the names and statues of George Washington and Andrew Jackson be removed from parks. Others want Woodrow Wilson’s name excised from buildings and schools because he supported racial segregation. The list goes on and on.


Walls work. Hungary proves it

Sep 18, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Walls keep out people you don’t want. The preceding sentence is so obvious I feel silly writing it. And yet leftists and open-borders fanatics — many of whom are on the payroll of Hungarian exile George Soros — keep making the perfect the enemy of the good, whining that because 100 percent of illegal aliens can’t be kept out of the United States, building a wall on the southern border is a dumb, wasteful, even racist idea.

Under siege by illegals streaming across its frontiers, Hungary has had enough. That country’s courageous prime minister, Viktor Orban, insists that Hungary’s sovereignty be respected by all


Traitor whines about losing Harvard appointment

Sep 16, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

It’s a time-honored tradition in the groves of academe that the worst people in the country are honored with university appointments.

So right on schedule Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government awarded a prestigious visiting fellowship to Chelsea Manning, a traitor who should have been executed by firing squad.


Antifa justify their use of violence

Sep 15, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

The radical left-wing stormtroopers who call themselves Antifa are “unapologetic about what they describe as the necessary use of violence to combat authoritarianism,” The Hill newspaper got around to noticing.

While both experts on the movement and activists within it emphasize that not everyone who participates in anti-fascist activism engages in violence, they say the use of force is intrinsic to their political philosophy.


DEMS’ SINGLE-PAYER WARPATH

Sep 14, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

The un-American abomination that is single-payer health care, the goal of progressives and other subversives for a century, is rearing its ugly head again in wake of the Republicans’ pathetic failure to deliver on their promise to repeal the national embarrassment that is Obamacare.

Democrats smell blood in the water after Republicans betrayed their supporters by not driving a stake through the heart of the wealth-transferring Obamacare law that is fundamentally changing America by reducing the quality of health care delivery and making Americans poorer.


Soros picks ACORN, SEIU hack Patrick Gaspard to head Open Society Foundations

Sep 13, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Leftist meddler extraordinaire George Soros has named President Obama’s far-left ambassador to South Africa, Patrick Gaspard, as acting president of his philanthropic network, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), effective at the end of the year.

There is an excellent chance Soros, who turned 87 last month, will make the appointment of Gaspard permanent since there will reportedly not even be a perfunctory executive search process. There is no reason to look any further: Gaspard is seen by many of his leftist colleagues — such as David Axelrod — as having largely the same set of skills as the politically talented master community organizer Barack Obama. He is, essentially, the ideal candidate to head up the anti-social charity that is devoted to destroying civil society and social engineering in America and elsewhere.


Hillary’s cry for help

Sep 12, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Losing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is opening a promotional tour for her new campaign memoir by smearing President Trump and his tens of millions of supporters as deplorable racists.

Not content to fade into the background as defeated nominees have tended to do in the modern era, the former secretary of state is race-baiting and grandstanding in front of anyone who will listen, a move that is causing consternation among plenty of professional Democrats.


New White House communications director is just 28 years old

Sep 12, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Twenty-eight year old Hope Hicks, 28, born Oct. 21, 1988, a little under 29 years ago. Now in her 29th year, she is expected to turn 30 late next year. But today she is 10,553 days old. I used to have a TV set that was older. I have two bottles of liquor that are older than that. Come to think of it, I have footwear older than Hope Hicks.

Let that sink in.

Connecticut native Hope Hicks, who was just named permanent White House communications director after serving a few weeks in the post in an interim capacity, is 28 years old.


Nazi salutes as mockery: conservative fired, liberal, well, nothing

Sep 12, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

I don’t see why anyone would get upset over a Nazi salute offered to mock someone, except maybe for the target of the mockery. I did it when I was a little kid to show defiance to an adult I thought was being bossy. Ill-advised, sure, but an expression of support for Nazism? No way. Quite the opposite. I’m sure I’m not the only little kid to have done this.

Yet mock Nazi salutes receive different treatment depending on the person doing the saluting.


Steve Bannon hits Catholic bishops over DACA stand

Sep 8, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon blasted U.S. Catholic bishops for their long-standing support for open-borders and illegal aliens, the Washington Times reports.

“The bishops have been terrible about this,” said Bannon, a self-identified Roman Catholic who has returned to his post running Breitbart News. The bishops are “unable to really to come to grips with the problems in the church, they need illegal aliens.


A ‘Smash Zionists’ rally at the U of Illinois

Sep 8, 2017 — Matthew Vadum


The radical Students for Justice in Palestine organized a “Smash Fascism” rally this week at the University of Illinois to attack Zionism and the fiercely democratic State of Israel as a supposedly white-supremacist, fascist country.

What these left-wingers meant by “fascism” is subject to debate. Fascism has long been in the eye of the beholder. The term has been used so promiscuously in recent decades that it has been drained of meaning.


Commie Mayor Unleashed

Sep 8, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

New York’s unrepentant small-c communist mayor Bill de Blasio showed his true colors in a new New York magazine interview, reaffirming his radical roots and speaking of his plans to unleash a veritable Reign of Terror against wealthy, productive people.

In the interview, the America-hating, Puerto Rican terrorist-celebrating Democrat mayor reminds voters that he has learned nothing during his disastrous tenure at Gracie Mansion. The takeaway is that he believes taxes are too low not only in his city but throughout America, police haven’t been persecuted enough, criminals haven’t been coddled and subsidized enough, and President Trump is a dangerous racist demagogue whose fascistic policies need to be fought.
