Don't forget what is at stake....

For all of the whining, liberal snowflakes, they might want to take a look at what they feel they want to protect.  All the bitching, moaning and groaning about efforts to keep dangerous Muslims out of the fabric of our nation, it might be smart for them to have a little lesson from history.

We hear a lot of crap about how 95% of Muslims are "Peaceful" people.  They may "feel" peaceful.... but the religious presure of Islam disables all of their ability to actually bring peace to their lives.  They cannot even have peaceful existance when they LIVE in the midst of Islam because the internal doctrinal shadings make them declare war upon themselves!!!! There is a twisted DNA in them the requires them to make war with anyone, anywhere,anytjime ...just for the sake of war.  Their own nations are sewers of suffering, discrimination, inhumanity, cruelty and they clamor to excape.....but, when they do,wherever they land they create the same inhuman contitions from which they fled.

The short video below perfectly displays the impact of Islam and Sharia Law.....and the sad thing is.....the Peaceful People just let it happen.

DID YOU KNOW...
                     How You Helped Pay for America’s Opioid Addiction Crisis ?


The national opioid addiction crisis was largely fueled by Medicaid !!!
How did so many millions of un-working men, whose incomes are limited, manage en masse to afford a constant supply of pain medication? Oxycontin is not cheap. One main mechanism today has been the welfare state: more specifically, Medicaid, Uncle Sam’s means-tested health-benefits program. Here is how it works:
[The Medicaid card] pays for medicine—whatever pills a doctor deems that the insured patient needs. Among those who receive Medicaid cards are people on state welfare or on a federal disability program known as SSI. . . . If you could get a prescription from a willing doctor—and  plenty of them are around...Medicaid health-insurance cards paid for that prescription every month. For a three-dollar Medicaid co-pay, therefore, addicts got pills priced at thousands of dollars, with the difference paid for by U.S. and state taxpayers. A user could turn around and sell those pills, obtained for that three-dollar co-pay, for as much as ten thousand dollars on the street.
In 21st-century America, “dependence on government” has thus come to take on an entirely new meaning.
You may wish to ask: What share of prime-working-age men these days are enrolled in Medicaid? According to the Census Bureau’s SIPP survey (Survey of Income and Program Participation), as of 2013, over one-fifth (21 percent) of all civilian men between 25 and 55 years of age were Medicaid beneficiaries. For prime-age people not in the labor force, the share was over half (53 percent). And for un-working Anglos (non-Hispanic white men not in the labor force) of prime working age, the share enrolled in Medicaid was 48 percent.
By the way: Of the entire un-working prime-age male Anglo population in 2013, nearly three-fifths (57 percent) were reportedly collecting disability benefits from one or more government disability program in 2013. Disability checks and means-tested benefits cannot support a lavish lifestyle. But they can offer a permanent alternative to paid employment, and for growing numbers of American men, they do. The rise of these programs has coincided with the death of work for larger and larger numbers of American men not yet of retirement age. We cannot say that these programs caused the death of work for millions upon millions of younger men: What is incontrovertible, however, is that they have financed it—just as Medicaid inadvertently helped finance America’s immense and increasing appetite for opioids in our new century. 
We did this to ourselves — or more specifically, generous federal health-care spending programs, who had the best intentions about helping the poor and disabled, worked with reckless doctors to finance life-destroying addictions from coast to coast. No terrorist group could have hit Americans this hard!

The ‘Soft Coup’ Continues

Synonym for "Coup" is  "Back stab"

It’s the middle of February and the soft coup against the Trump administration continues.
A “soft coup” is a coordinated effort to delegitimize or undermine a lawfully elected official.
Taken from the French phrase “coup d’├ętat,” which translates to a strike at the State — a coup may be violent or not. In the latter case, it is a “soft coup.” Traditionally, soft coups are the stuff of Latin American political conspiracy theories and paperback novels.

Soft coups include actions of senior government officials refusing to carry out their roles in critical tasks, or otherwise acting in opposition to the letter or spirit of the law to diminish or remove de facto power from those who would otherwise legally wield it.

That’s interesting – isn’t it? Any recent circumstances like that? Can you foresee any on the horizon?

In 2017, propaganda is a powerful tool for shaping public opinion. Politicized news media can be complicit in the scheme of the soft coup by engaging in false and misleading reporting, or acting as the propaganda arm of the political opposition.

Suppose the news media advanced a false narrative to sensationalize and controversialize a government official. What about unsourced whispering campaigns? Sound familiar? It

should. It’s time to ask yourself some questions:

Have you seen a marked increase in supposed “news” stories attributed to anonymous sources? How about references to multiple, purportedly confirming anonymous sources?

Anonymous sources can be important and used legitimately – but not exclusively. After all, one might think you’re just making things up to advance your own agenda.

Have you seen news reports corrected or follow-on reporting disclaiming earlier reports?

What about claims of files, dossiers and secret meetings? Have they eventually been discredited or exposed as false?

Have you detected a new and sudden fervor in aggressive interviewing styles from talking heads who otherwise were cheerfully complacent, or busy acting as stenographers?

Do you see certain words and expressions repeated in reporting? How many times have you seen the words “chaos” or “chaotic” used by different reporters in any number of news stories.

Assuming use of that particular term is factually correct – and that’s quite an assumption – one would think news editors might use a thesaurus. That assumes anyone still knows what a thesaurus is, correct?

I teach as an adjunct in the journalism program at George Mason University. One of the points I stress to my students is that they – as journalists – do NOT want to become THE story. They are reporting the story. If the publics’ attention turns to them and their conduct – something is very wrong. Guess what? Something is very wrong.

Joe Mathewson is a former Supreme Court reporter for the Wall Street Journal. He now teaches at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. I use his textbook, “Law and Ethics for Today’s Journalist” in my classes. Paperback, it’s only about $30.

The Society of Professional Journalists has a Code of Ethics. Before our highly-politicized news media slides into complete irrelevancy, I strongly advise reporters and editors to pause; evaluate their reporting; understand what’s going on in their news room; set aside their personal biases; reinvigorate their journalistic standards; and, then get back to reporting facts.
