Terrorism Charges: Coming Soon For New Mexico Jihadists?
The five accused Muslim terrorists arrested at a jihadist training facility in New Mexico this summer will soon be charged with “terrorism and or kidnapping” in addition to the current firearms charges already pending, according to federal prosecutors.

This is the case in which five adults, including Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, were arrested after authorities found 11 hungry, filthy children living in squalid conditions in a terrorist training compound in Amalia, Taos County, a remote part of New Mexico on Aug. 3. The children were reportedly being trained to commit school shootings.

Conservatives Triumph over Free Speech-Hating Berkeley
Conservatives scored a major legal victory against UC Berkeley which has agreed to compensate Young America’s Foundation and Berkeley College Republicans for trampling the First Amendment rights of conservative speakers and students on its campus.

“Young America’s Foundation is thrilled that, after more than a year of UC Berkeley battling against the First Amendment rights of its own students, the University finally felt the heat and saw the light of their unconstitutional censorship,” said YAF spokesman Spencer Brown.


TRUMP VOWS TO KICK CNN’S ACOSTA OUT AGAIN

TRUMP VOWS TO KICK CNN’S ACOSTA OUT AGAIN
President Trump took CNN’s improbable court victory temporarily restoring CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” media credential for the executive mansion in stride, vowing to kick Acosta out again in the future if he breaches White House protocol again.

The yanking of the physical credential, by the way, isn’t exactly a grave hardship. It just means Acosta would need to make an appointment through the White House press office every time he wanted to visit the White House grounds, just as the rest of the non-hard pass-holding journalists who don’t work for big media outlets like CNN have to do. Lacking a hard pass does not prevent anyone from reporting on the White House.


JIM ACOSTA, CNN AND A SURREAL LAWSUIT

JIM ACOSTA, CNN AND A SURREAL LAWSUIT
Since it was filed earlier this week the lawsuit brought by America’s foremost purveyor of fake news, cable TV network CNN, against the Trump administration claiming the revocation of White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” media credential somehow runs afoul of the U.S. Constitution has largely been cheered on by journalists but ridiculed by conservatives and lawyers.

Acosta’s hard pass was yanked after a contentious Nov. 7 press conference at the White House. After interacting with President Trump – Acosta said he wanted to “challenge” him on calling the Central American caravans an “invasion” – the president called upon another reporter to speak. Acosta belligerently refused to yield the microphone to a White House staffer and pushed her arm away as she reached for the device, all of which was captured on video.


Creepy Porn Lawyer Arrested For Domestic Violence

Creepy Porn Lawyer Arrested For Domestic Violence
Sleazy leftist ambulance chaser Michael Avenatti who coordinated a campaign of false sexual assault accusers in a failed bid to keep Justice Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court has been arrested in West Los Angeles on suspicion of felony-level domestic violence.

Avenatti is not only an indefatigable, high-powered trial lawyer – he’s a major political operator in Democratic Party circles. He worked for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, for five years at a political consulting firm and reportedly “worked on nearly 150 campaigns in 42 states, all while attending night law school at George Washington University, where he graduated first in his class.”


WHY TRUMP IS RIGHT ON CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES

WHY TRUMP IS RIGHT ON CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES
As huge wildfires continued to devour forests, homes, and businesses across California over the weekend, President Trump lashed out at the destructive, deadly policies long pushed by environmentalists that set the stage for the Golden State’s now-routine fiery catastrophes.

“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” President Trump tweeted Nov. 10 at 3:08 a.m. “Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”


ANTIFA TERRORIZES TUCKER CARLSON’S FAMILY

ANTIFA TERRORIZES TUCKER CARLSON’S FAMILY
Activists from the Antifa group Smash Racism DC attempted a violent home-invasion at the residence of crusading conservative talk show host Tucker Carlson’s family in Washington Wednesday, an act that met with the approval of many left-wingers.

Antifa has been accurately described as a revolutionary communist-anarchist militia movement that aspires to forcibly overthrow the United States government. It dishonestly labels its opponents as racists, fascists, Nazis, and white-nationalists, regardless of their actual beliefs.


SESSIONS OUT—AND CNN’S ACOSTA LOCKED OUT

Nov 8, 2018 — Matthew Vadum

CNN and the White House Correspondents’ Association are now portraying Acosta as a free speech martyr instead of an egomaniacal brat who doesn’t know when to shut up.
The day after the midterm elections, President Trump forced Jeff Sessions out as attorney general, revoked the White House media credentials of CNN’s most obnoxious correspondent, Jim Acosta, after a spirited presser, and offered his reflections on his party retaining control of the Senate but losing control of the House to Democrats.

In the new Congress that will be meet in the new year, Republicans will control at least 54 of the Senate’s 100 seats, a net gain of three. Democrats were poised to have around a 12-member majority in the House of Representatives though that figure could change


THE BLUE RIPPLE

THE BLUE RIPPLE
Republicans strengthened their hold on the U.S. Senate last night even as they failed to resist a wave in midterm congressional elections that gave Democrats hellbent on derailing President Trump’s agenda control of the House of Representatives for the first time in eight years.

Barring a revolt in the newly expanded cohort of House Democrats, this means the increasingly frail Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California will return as Speaker of the House. The 116th Congress convenes Jan. 3, 2019.


Another False Kavanaugh Accuser Referred To Feds

Another False Kavanaugh Accuser Referred To Feds
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has sent the case of a woman who admits inventing sexual abuse allegations to block Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to federal officials for criminal prosecution.

The news came as Grassley’s committee unveiled a 414-page report on all of the allegations against Kavanaugh during the confirmation process. “In the end, there was no credible evidence to support the allegations against the nominee,” he said.


U.S. Troops May Use Force Against Caravan Members who initiate Violence

U.S. Troops May Use Force Against Caravan Members who initiate Violence
U.S. troops that are confronted by the illegal migrant caravans now in Central America that are approaching the nation’s southern border will be authorized to use force to defend themselves, President Trump said Thursday as he promised a new executive order next week that will prevent those entering the country illegally from making asylum claims.

Trump’s comments came the day after he released a hard-hitting video reminding voters of Democrat shortcomings on immigration policy. The ad features an expletive-spewing Luis Bracamontes, an illegal alien who was sentenced to death for murdering two cops in 2014 in Sacramento, California, when Barack Obama was president. “I’m going to kill more cops soon,” the smiling, remorseless killer is shown saying in the video.


Did The Incompetent Bomb-Making Terrorist Have Help?

Did The Incompetent Bomb-Making Terrorist Have Help?
The criminal prosecution of accused 56-year-old mail bomber, Cesar Altieri Sayoc of Aventura, Florida, who is said to have sent non-operating improvised explosive devices to Democrat headliners like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros, is scheduled to begin today.

Sayoc, a down-on-his-luck male stripper and bodybuilder with psychiatric problems who was reportedly living in a van plastered with pro-Trump, anti-Democrat, and anti-CNN imagery, was quietly arrested Friday outside an auto parts store. He faces five federal charges. He was been identified by the media as a rabid supporter of President Trump, which he may well be, but there is some evidence that calls into question the truthfulness of that assessment and whether Sayoc’s purported beliefs are sincere. And even if the facile media characterization of his politics turns out to be accurate, Sayoc did not speak for Republicans when he allegedly mailed explosives to prominent Democrats. In America, with few exceptions, political violence is a thing of the Left.


NON-FUNCTIONING BOMBS AND DOUBLE STANDARDS

NON-FUNCTIONING BOMBS AND DOUBLE STANDARDS
Political terrorism is almost exclusively the province of the Left in America, so naturally, conservatives find the timing of the delivery of non-functioning, vaguely scary-looking replicas of letter bombs this week to opponents of President Trump suspicious to say the least.

Remember that the Democratic National Committee has officially endorsed the violent Black Lives Matter movement and that more than a few Democrats support the Antifa terrorist movement. Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 running-mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), whose son Woody is an Antifa terrorist, said recently that Democrats need to “fight in the streets” against Republicans.

Crude Anti-White, Anti-Male, Anti-Christian Communists Indoctrinate California K-12 Students
Editor’s note: Beginning below, there is a “Forms of Oppression” grid that is part of a bundle of documents produced by the leftist group “Just Communities,” which the unfortunate taxpayers of Santa Barbara, California, are paying Just Communities to use to indoctrinate their children with anti-American beliefs.

Above is a curriculum the Santa Barbara Unified School District has paid an organization called “Just Communities” to impose on its K-12 students. It tells you all you need to know about the racist, anti-American left which has embedded itself in school districts like Santa Barbara all across the country.


THE FILM THE LEFT TRIED TO ABORT

THE FILM THE LEFT TRIED TO ABORT
After a mighty struggle, the film, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, finally opened in movie theaters nationwide on Oct. 12.

Like the effort to prosecute a real-life monster, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the effort to make the movie was hindered at every turn because the Left studiously avoids doing anything that might call into question abortion on demand, its holiest of sacraments. Indeed, support for unrestricted access to abortion unites the entire Left, from labor unions to Alinskyite community organizations to environmentalist groups to race-baiting legal defense funds. Come down against it, and you’re an outcast with no future, as former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), once an ardent pro-lifer, painfully discovered before he switched sides.

Trump Blasts Kavanaugh Impeachment Effort
President Trump blasted the burgeoning effort among left-wing activists and Democrat lawmakers to impeach newly sworn in Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh and declared that the fake sexual allegations and smears made against him were “brought about by people that are evil.”

Under siege by howling leftist mobs, Vice President Mike Pence, who was presiding over the Senate, declared the nomination of Kavanaugh approved Saturday by a vote of 50 to 48.


TRUMP’S FIGHTING SPIRIT GETS KAVANAUGH CONFIRMED

TRUMP’S FIGHTING SPIRIT GETS KAVANAUGH CONFIRMED
After the dirtiest, nastiest Supreme Court confirmation battle in American history, President Trump’s pick, Brett Kavanaugh, was finally confirmed to the high court and sworn in as its ninth justice on the weekend, cementing for years what could be an ideologically conservative majority on the court.

This means that in under two years in power President Trump has succeeded in putting two apparently originalist justices on the Supreme Court, a font of outrageous big-government activism where unelected black robed-politicians have for decades imposed unconstitutional left-wing monstrosities like Obamacare and so-called affirmative action on the American people, policies that voters have rejected at the polls.


“A VERY SCARY TIME FOR YOUNG MEN”

A VERY SCARY TIME FOR YOUNG MEN
President Trump lashed out at left-wingers this week, declaring that the out-of-control leftist-manufactured controversies raging around Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court prove it is a “very scary time for young men.”

It has been true for a while that men accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment on college campuses are tried by kangaroo courts. In fact, railroading students accused of such things was official policy in President Obama’s Department of Education. But now the same mob mentality has taken over the nation’s capital.


Jeff Flake’s Confirmation Circus

Jeff Flake's Confirmation Circus
The Senate Judiciary Committee may have approved the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh on a straight party-line vote Friday, but the confirmation process will not wrap up until the end of the week at the earliest.

And Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court remains in doubt. If Kavanaugh fails to be confirmed, the proximate cause will be the treachery of Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.).


Avenatti’s Freak Show

Avenatti’s Freak Show

On the eve of a historic Supreme Court confirmation hearing, two more women have materialized out of thin air to accuse President Trump’s high court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual improprieties – bringing the total number of accusers to four.

Even more eleventh-hour character-assassination attempts may be coming given the enraged Left’s determination to prevent the judge’s ascent to the Supreme Court at all costs. Whether the claims are true is irrelevant to these people. Only the seriousness and luridness of the charges matter as they get aired over and over again in the 24-hour news cycle. They don’t care about the victims they create. Only the headlines.
