America: An Us Vs. Them Country

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org, “Send her back! Send her back!” The 13 seconds of that chant at the rally in North Carolina, in response to Donald Trump’s recital of the outrages of Somali-born Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, will not soon be forgotten, or forgiven. This phrase will have a long shelf life. T-shirts emblazoned with “Send Her Back!” and Old Glory are already on sale on eBay. Look for the chant at future Trump rallies, as his followers now realize that the chant drives the elites straight up the wall. That 13-second chant and Trump’s earlier tweet to the four radical congresswomen of “the Squad” to “go back” to where they came from is being taken as the smoking gun that convicts Trump as an irredeemable racist whose “base” is poisoned by the same hate. Writes The New York Times’ Charles Blow in a column that uses “racist” or “racism” more than 30 times: Americans who do not concede that Trump is a racist — are themselves racists: “Make no mistake. Denying racism or refusing to call it out is also racist.” But what is racism? Is it not a manifest dislike or hatred of people of color because of their color? Trump was not denouncing the ethnicity or race of Ilhan Omar in his rally speech. He was reciting and denouncing what Omar said, just as Nancy...

Not The Onion: NY Times Urges Trump To Establish Closer Ties With Moscow

In 2016 a Russia-Trump campaign collusion conspiracy was afoot and unfolding right before our eyes, we were told, as during his roll-out foreign policy speech at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., then candidate Trump said [gasp!]: “Common sense says this cycle, this horrible cycle of hostility must end and ideally will end soon. Good for both countries. Some say the Russians won’t be reasonable. I intend to find out.” NPR and others had breathlessly reported at the time, “Sergey Kislyak, then the Russian ambassador to the U.S., was sitting in the front row” [more gasps!]. This ‘suspicious’ “coincidence or something more?” event and of course the infamous Steele ‘Dodgy Dossier’ were followed by over two more years of the following connect-the-dots mere tiny sampling of unrestrained theorizing and avalanche of accusations… Here’s a very brief trip down memory lane:    2017, Politico: The Hidden History of Trump’s First Trip to Moscow 2017, NYT: Trump’s Russia Motives (where we were told: “President Trump certainly seems to have a strange case of Russophilia.”) 2017, Business Insider: James Clapper: Putin is handling Trump like a Russian ‘asset’ 2017, USA Today: Donald Trump’s ties to Russia go back 30 years 2018, NYT: Trump, Treasonous Traitor 2018, AP: Russia had ‘Trump over a barrel’ 2018, BBC: Russia: The ‘cloud’ over the Trump White House 2018, NYT: From the Start, Trump Has Muddied a Clear Message: Putin Interfered 2018, USA Today: “From Putin with love” 2019, WaPo: Here are 18...

Gallup: Mentions Of Immigration As Top Problem Surpass Record High

Authored by Jeffrey Jones, via Gallup Highlights: 27% identify immigration as the most important U.S. problem Surpasses record 23% naming the issue in June A small number of issues have ever eclipsed 27% mentions since 2001 After hitting a new high last month, mentions of immigration as the most important problem facing the U.S. increased further to 27% in July. Since Gallup began regularly recording mentions of the issue in 1993, immigration has been cited by an average of 6% of Americans, though it has been higher in recent years. There have been occasional, typically short-lived, spikes when major immigration events were occurring. The July 1-12 poll was conducted as the U.S. government continues to struggle to handle the large number of Central American immigrants attempting to enter the U.S. via the U.S.-Mexico border. The issue was brought into sharper focus in early July when Democratic congressional leaders and Republican Vice President Mike Pence made separate trips to facilities that are holding the migrants as they await asylum hearings. While Republican and Democratic leaders’ assessments of the situation differed, both acknowledged overcrowded conditions and characterized the situation at the border as a crisis. Republicans have typically been more likely than Democrats and independents to name immigration as the most important problem, and that is still the case. In the latest survey, 42% of Republicans, 20% of independents and 20%...

New Study Suggests Living Near Oil Fields Could Cause Birth Defects In Babies

A new study has determined that families living near oil and gas fields have a 40 to 70% higher probability of having their children develop congenital heart defects (CHDs) compared to those living at greater distances, reported CU Anschutz Today. “We observed more children were being born with a congenital heart defect in areas with the highest intensity of oil and gas well activity,” said the study’s lead author Lisa McKenzie, Ph.D., MPH, of the Colorado School of Public Health at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. More than 17 million Americans and 6% of Colorado’s total population live within one mile of an active drilling rig. The study was published last Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Environment International, studied 3,324 infants born in Colorado between 2005 to 2011. Researchers studied infants with several types of CHDs. CHD is one of the most common birth defects in the country and a leading cause of death among infants. Infants with CHD have low rates of survival due to severe developmental problems and are more vulnerable to brain injury. McKenzie’s study comes after a paper that analyzed 124,842 births in rural Colorado between 1996 to 2009 and discovered that CHDs occured near oil and gas drilling facilities. Another study in Oklahoma studied 476,000 births, found several variants of CHDs near oil wells. Anschutz Today noted that the studies had several...

Trans Activist Organizes Topless Swimming Session For Girls As Young As 12, Parents Not Allowed

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit.news, A trans activist who gained notoriety for attempting to force beauticians to wax their balls and penis is now arranging a swimming session for girls as young as 12 where parents will not be allowed to be present. Yes, really. Jessica Yaniv, who was born a man, has filed complaints with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal against fifteen female aestheticians for their refusal to wax her male genitalia. The controversy prompted comedian Ricky Gervais to wade into the debate. “How did we get to the point where women are having to fight for the right to choose whether they wax some big old hairy cock & balls or not? It is not a human right to have your meat & 2 veg polished,” tweeted Gervais, who was accused of “transphobia” for defending a woman’s right not to wax male genitalia.

Yaniv has now organized a “youth all bodies swim” event at the Al Anderson Memorial Pool in Langley, British Columbia. The promotional material for the...
