We need more of this! Become a citizen journalist!

This is an incredible tale from a recent “town hall” in Northern Virginia. The citizen investigative reporter/journalist, C. Trauernicht, attended a public meeting and reports what was heard here at Conservative HQ.

I’ve only snipped a small segment of the article because I want you to read the whole thing especially if you live in Virginia where some of your elected officials are mentioned by name!

You too can do this!

Arlington Muslim Town Hall Meeting Bashes GOP Presidential Candidates

The “non-partisan” description was what drew me to the event. I fully expected there to be a thoughtful, educational, informative, respectful exchange of ideas. But that was not what happened.

Alfonso-638x425
Virginia Del Alfonzo Lopez (D-Arlington) mocked the Tea Party for concerns about Sharia law and called out “75-year old white Delegates in Richmond who want their VA back.”

Simply put, the organizers staged an event to bash VA Republican legislators, and presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. The “Town Hall Meeting” was highly partisan, to the point of distraction from the advertised topic.

There was no discussion about the tenets of Islam, no discussion about the tension between the Qur’an and the Hadith, and no discussion about the possible conflict within the Muslim community about their faith.

The first speaker was Nader Hasan, cousin of Major Nidal Hasan, known as the Fort Hood shooter. Nader described himself as “the epitome of the American dream,” and spoke about how he grew up in America, living a pleasant life. Never did he experience discrimination until after the Fort Hood shooting. [Then surprise! Continue reading…]

[….]

As the program moved through the next two panels of speakers, what attendees heard was consistent criticism of Republicans – ONLY. The VA legislators and Arlington County Board members who spoke were Democrats. The only Republican speaker identified was a representative of the Arlington County Republicans, and he sounded like an apologist for the Democrats. Even the two British speakers bashed Republicans!

Trump’s idea of curtailing remittances to Mexico is a great idea (wall or no wall)

I have too much to do today to properly tell you all about how remittances (money sent by immigrants out of the US economy) are used to prop up economies around the world.

trump-border-wall (1)
Trump’s wall is doable! http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/02/18/cnn-runs-segment-on-trump-wall-being-very-doable-we-explain-how-mexico-pays/

And, no time to tell you about how terrorism is funded with some of that money, or that many of those dollars are taxpayer dollars you contributed to legal and illegal migrants through your welfare ‘charity.’

Or, how many of those dollars were stolen from the Food Stamp program.

Remittances are the reason the ‘temporary protective status’ never goes away for certain categories of immigrant in the US.

And, the dream of remittances sent back to Central America is why those countries don’t curtail the flight of tens of thousands of their youths to the American border. (spike coming!)  ‘Leaders’ there assume the kids will send money ‘home.’

Ana Sol-Gutierrez
Maryland Rep. admitted in 2013 debate on ‘Gang of Eight’ bill: “money is a principal driver of the foreign governments’ interest in immigration reform.” http://thehill.com/policy/international/281605-foreign-governments-lobby-hard-in-favor-of-immigration-reform

I’ve written a good bit over the years about the remittance game and how it is a major driver of immigration to America.  See posts here at RRW.

This is what the Washington Post said yesterday about the Trump plan (it even brought Obama to the podium to chastise Trump).

Suffice it to say, I am happy the issue has been so publicly mentioned because I don’t think most Americans understand how many billions of dollars leave the US every year through remittances and how that is a major reason migrants come here (to send money ‘home,’ not because they want necessarily to be American citizens!).

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump would try to force Mexico to pay for a border wall by targeting billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the U.S., according to a memo released by his campaign Tuesday.

The memo outlines in new detail how Trump would try to compel Mexico to pay for the 1,000-mile wall he’s promised to build along the Southern border if he becomes president.

In his proposal, Trump threatened to change a rule under the USA Patriot Act, an anti-terrorism law, to cut off a portion of the funds sent to Mexico through money transfers known as remittances. His plan would also bar non-Americans from wiring money outside of the U.S. unless they can provide documentation establishing their legal status in the country.

Trump said he would withdraw the threat if Mexico makes a one-time payment to finance the wall.

“It’s an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year,” the memo reads.

By the way, the Dems are quick to tell us that food stamp dollars and other welfare payments to indigent immigrants fuels the US economy as those dollars return via goods and services purchased.

Isn’t it time we find out exactly how our tax dollars prop up third world nations through uncontrolled movement of those dollars out of the country?

The Republicans who are running the House and Senate should be investigating the loss to the US economy of the billions leaving the country via remittances, wall or no wall (Trump or no Trump!). So, where have they been?

There is hope for American college kids after all! Chalking for free speech in 2016!

Surely you heard the news recently about the sensitive students who got up one morning last month at Emory University and saw ‘Trump 2016’ written in chalk on the Atlanta, GA campus.

“We are in pain” they said (here).

Now watch the incredible campus campaign the traumatized Emory students have inspired (hat tip: Sundance for the video).

Feel the chalk!

 

Did you see it? Even some at the University of Maryland got into the fun of mocking “the little darlings” of Emory!  Free speech lives!

No chalk, no sidewalk?

I saw a recommendation of something you too can do.  Take a pad of post-it notes and write ‘Trump 2016′ (or whatever, be civil) on each page, keep it in your car and stick’em wherever you go.  (Do not deface any surface, however, with markers or pens!).  Have fun!

Endnote: This whole Election 2016 is so fascinating (humorous too!), I’m finding I’m getting nothing productive done as I wander aimlessly around social media finding new and more stunning news by the minute. How about you? Having the same problem?

This is what Cruz-supporting women think appeals to women?

…..Not this woman! 

I’m actually speechless about this poster that was revealed in Wisconsin last night at an event to showcase Ted Cruz’s love of women (hmmm!).

If I only saw the poster, without the story, I would immediately assume it was an attack on Cruz as a dope-smoking gang-banger! (With everyone blaming it on the Trump campaign!)

Read the story here.  Dumb, dumb, dumb!

Cruz poster
Poster unveiled at a “celebration of women” event FOR Cruz! Join the revolution?

 

And, frankly I don’t even get it.  Who is blacklisting Cruz? It was his supporter Amanda Carpenter writing the blacklist of those who support Trump! See here.

TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) strikes again….

Corey who? Trump manages again to change the subject/control the news

When I turned CNN on early this morning I knew The Donald’s falling into the abortion manure pit last night would be all the news and it was.  As a Trump fan even I have to admit I was yelling at the TV for him to shut-up. All he had to say to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was that he is ‘pro-Life and let’s move on to the next question.’  That is all!

(Trump must get back to core issues of national security, immigration and trade! And, oops! forgot jobs of course!)

Meghan McCain
Fox News’ Meghan McCain wants Trump campaign manager fired. Ms. McCain does not speak for all conservative women—thank God! One more reason to turn off Fox and read and watch more alternative media.

Instead, they will ALL be buzzing about abortion today…

The abortion flap may have accomplished one thing—this morning, in the half an hour I watched CNN, I didn’t hear the word ‘Corey’ once. (Albeit a small sampling of the news.)

I had gone to bed steaming over the “conservative women journalists” who were after Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s head last night.

Did you see that these esteemed ‘journalists’ are demanding Trump fire Lewandowski and I’ll tell you if Trump caves to the harpies, I’ll be taking down my Trump yard signs because when I look at the images of the “assault,” I see a pushy woman, where she wasn’t supposed to be in the first place, having been told twice by the Secret Service to stay back and obviously ignoring them.

Trump must continue to stand by Lewandowski.

Here is the news (at Newsmax) about Cruz’s girls.  Have they no more important issues to cover than this? Hillary maybe?  Aren’t they even willing to wait until the legal system can work?

I’ll bet many of you have never heard of most of these self-important ‘journalists.’  The top three (below) have been unabashed Cruz supporters from day one, so their little effort here is so transparent.  They say they are concerned about women journalists and their treatment, really, and you aren’t Cruz crusaders first and foremost?

No surprise Ms. Megyn Kelly had two of them on her show last night.

Dana Loesch (Radio America, Blaze TV); Katie Pavlich, (Townhall, Fox News); Meghan McCain, (America Now Radio, Cosmopolitan, Fox News); S.E. Cupp, ( New York Daily News, Glamour, CNN); Mary Katharine Ham, (CNN, The Federalist); Christine Rosen, (New Atlantis, Commentary); Christina Hoff Sommers, (American Enterprise Institute).

Bethany Mandel, (The Federalist, Acculturated); Emily Zanotti, (American Spectator); Elisha Krauss, (AM 870 The Answer); Karol Markowicz, (New York Post); Kristen Soltis Anderson, (Washington Examiner); Mona Charen, (Ethics and Public Policy Center, Creators Syndicate); Sarah Rumpf, (freelance); Brooke Rogers, (National Review); and Mary Chastain, (Breitbart).

As I have said many times, the fascinating thing about Trump’s run for the Presidency is that it has, in some strange way, defined so many in the media and throughout our political system.

I won’t look at conservative media (or listen to talk radio) again in the same way as I have for years.

And, that is especially so now that I know that the supposed conservative media is so heavily funded by political operatives.  See the Conservative Treehouse here.  Blogger Sundance begins:

Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface.

Indeed it has!

Do liberals hate horses (along with the police)? Sure looks like it!

For those who know me, you know this photo of a liberal, anti-Trump supporter smacking a police horse in Kansas City is disturbing.

We are beaten over the head (excuse the pun) and called haters because we support Donald Trump, but look at the face of the Far Left agitator April Foster as she goes after Dan, the police horse—a service animal just doing his job.

So who are the real haters here?

http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/03/20/anti-trump-protester-april-foster-charged-with-hitting-police-horse-in-kansas-city/

 

I posted the story (yes, we have stories too) from Breitbart at my facebook page (with a mention of #JusticeforDan), but when I saw it just now I became annoyed again.  My friend Cathy suggested #horselivesmatter! But, I see there is already a hashtag for Horse Lives Matter, and this story was tweeted there.

Actually that picture above, where she is hitting Dan, is after she tried scaring Dan by shouting in his face (these horses are extremely well-trained to not respond to such aggression).

April shouting at Dan
You can see in his eye that Dan is a little afraid, but is remaining calm because that is his job and he knows it.

Did you wonder what that banner Ms. Foster is carrying says?

I did! And, found it here being proudly held by the peaceful, kind and loving Ms. Foster.

April Foster banner
Ms. Foster (a self-described ‘commie’) says if you are a Trump supporter you are a Nazi or a Klansman. PYO is the Progressive Youth Organization. https://www.facebook.com/Progressivekc/photos/pb.269038513302107.-2207520000.1458443573./479534025585887/?type=3&theater

 

Please read ‘her’ story at Gateway Pundit where blogger Kristinn Taylor quotes from the police report:

Police said Foster approached an officer and his horse named Dan and began yelling and screaming in the horse’s face, trying to scare the animal.

“When this tactic did not work she attempted to push my horse with no success. I observed this to only make her more angry and violent and in a last attempt she struck my horse in the face with an open hand,” the officer’s report said.

KCTV 5 reported that ‘non-violent’ protester Ms. Foster has a court date.

Anyone in KC on May 4th (9 a.m.) might want to stop by!  Afterall, #horselivesmatter and #JusticeforDan!

April J. Foster, 29, was arrested about 5 p.m. Friday in the 9200 block of Ward Parkway and charged with abuse of a police service animal. Foster was later released after posting a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Municipal Court on May 4.

The story gets much bigger when you have a look at horse-hater Ms. Foster’s organization—Progressive Youth Organization.  See ‘Out with the racists, in with refugees.

I wonder if they have any connection to the now defunct Progressive Youth Organization of Afghanistan, here.  Hmmmm! Red-Green axis???

Stories, stories, stories, the Left’s tried and true method to jerk your chain

Well, maybe not your chain dear readers, because you get it, but for those not steeped in policy discussions on a daily basis.  Casual voters and skimmers of the news are particularly vulnerable.

Get out your tissues!  Rather than arguing the logic (illogic from our point of view) of federal initiatives—like the mass migration push of the Progressive Left, they always manage to get sympathetic stories about immigrants and refugees planted throughout the media in an effort to reach your emotions with the hope that you will forget your brains!

This is a ‘story’ from last week at the Daily Beast and it’s all about how a Muslim woman is now a US citizen thanks to Reagan’s 1986 (disastrous for us) amnesty. The title of the ‘story’ is: ‘A Muslim woman brought here by Reagan. Pushed away by Trump.’

Nancy and Farhana
The Daily Beast’s photo to illustrate their sob story… http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/03/20/a-muslim-woman-brought-here-by-reagan-pushed-away-by-trump.html

The ‘story’s’ hook is Nancy Reagan’s passing.  And, by the way, Farhana (the sympathetic star of the ‘story’) was not “brought here by Reagan.” Her father got in here illegally from Bangladesh and was granted amnesty (along with millions of other illegals) by Reagan.

Now Farhana, who always voted Republican (we are told) is being driven away from the political party she loves by Trump’s language.  I don’t need to go on, you get it, as if the Daily Beast cares one wit about one less Republican voter.

My point here is that we need to play the ‘story’ game every chance we get!

Those of us using our logic and reason when looking at public policy issues need to play their game more often—the let’s tell a ‘story’ game.

Esar Met closeup
Esar Met, a Burmese Muslim refugee, gets life in prison for murder of 7-year-old Christian girl. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/nation/2014/05/14/utah-girl-killed-man-sentence/9094371/

For example, I never miss an opportunity to remind readers of that brutal rape and murder by a Muslim refugee of a little Christian girl in Salt Lake City a few years ago.  I reported it again here yesterday.

(And, by the way, the national media never picked up this ‘story’ even as the sensational trial went on for many weeks. Why? Because it didn’t fit the mainstream media’s narrative!)

Then there is the Iraqi refugee rapist who was living in Colorado Springs before he was sent to prison for the next 28 years, and the Kentucky refugee jihadists now doing time in federal prison.  Grrrr! You paid for their resettlement to America and now you will pay for their decades behind bars.

jasim_ramadon_mug_shot_cropped

You get my drift. If the Open Borders Progressive Left is going to inundate the media with sympathetic migrant stories, you should be doing the same with the unsympathetic ones.

Don’t make anything up or exaggerate—just remember to use emotion as a strategic (powerful) political weapon when you write.

If they can use Farhana’s story, you can balance it with Met’s story!

Trump spokesman exposes feminist hypocrisy with comments on female genital mutilation

Stephen Miller CNN
Soft spoken Trump aide Stephen Miller lets them have it on CNN yesterday. Let’s talk about real issues effecting American women!

Good for Stephen Miller!

Readers, I had such big plans to write a lot here this morning (I have a backlog of good stuff), but got side tracked (first at Potomac Tea Party Report where I needed to remind Marylanders to register to vote by April 5th, and tell them about the largest mosque complex in America opening this week right here in MD!)

Then I got side tracked with a post on Georgia here where a resettlement contractor is trying to figure out how to survive if Trump is elected and their supply of Muslim refugees is cut off.

That was followed by a fit of annoyance when a reader sent me a Wall Street Journal story about “welcoming” Utah where WSJ reporter Miriam Jordan never mentioned the brutal rape of a Christian girl by a Muslim refugee—a story which I am never going to let anyone forget!

harpies

So now, little time for a report on how Trump spokesman Stephen Miller lectured the harpies (and harpy enablers) at CNN yesterday about how they run their mouths on “sexism” but never dare mention really awful things happening to American (mostly immigrant) women, like female genital mutilation.

But, not to worry, Julia Hahn at Breitbart tells the story in very thorough fashion here.  This is how she begins:

Members of Sunday morning’s panel on CNN State of the Union are oblivious to the barbaric, anti-Western practice facing hundreds of thousands of U.S. girls as a result of unbridled Muslim migration.

When the CNN panel sought to criticize Donald Trump for his so-called sexist retweet that has monopolized the news cycle for several days, Trump’s senior policy advisor Stephen Miller punched back, slamming Washington’s political class and corporate media for expressing “feigned indignation” about a retweet while ignoring serious issues facing U.S. women.

“The political class in Washington D.C. works itself up into a feigned indignation about things that don’t actually affect the lives of the American people,” said Stephen Miller.

Miller explained that the political class in Washington D.C. gets mad about the wrong things. Miller then proceeded to list issues that should actually be a source of righteous indignation: “We don’t get mad when Americans are murdered by illegal immigrants, we don’t get mad when people have their jobs taken by cheaper foreign workers here on visa programs, we don’t get mad when entire cities are crushed by our trade policies that send jobs overseas… So I think a big part of the Trump campaign is that people want to get mad about the right things.”

Learn more about what Miller said especially on female genital mutilation by continuing here.  See map, here, where women are most at risk in US for female genital mutilation (states with big Muslim populations!).

Amanda Carpenter announces Nixonian enemies list

Who the heck is Amanda Carpenter you might be asking?

Amanda Carpenter
Ms. Carpenter’s description of herself at twitter: “CNN Contributor, Former Cruz comms director, DeMint speechwriter. Mommy. Wifey”

Among other things she is a writer for Mark Levin’s ‘Conservative Review’ and she has taken it upon herself to publicly identify as enemies anyone who is supporting Donald J. Trump for President.

For those of us old enough to remember Nixon (she apparently isn’t!) this move is really beneath Mark Levin (if anything is beneath him and others who are obviously suffering from TDS—Trump Derangement Syndrome!)

What I want to know is who do we call to be added to Amanda’s black list?

Amanda_Carpenter
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanda_Carpenter

To see some of the wonderful patriotic leaders Ms. Amanda has targeted visit Breitbart here (some of my favorite people).  And, see her original Conservative Review article here.

Among the enemies of America are Dr. Ben Carson and Senator Jeff Sessions according to Amanda.

Who the heck was her editor to think this was a good idea?  Oh, it was Mark Levin!

Here is what Breitbart reporter Patrick Howley asked:

Why not a “blacklist” for conservatives who sold out the movement, and their own country, by embracing amnesty and the doctrine of open borders? Why not a “blacklist” for those who wrecked the New American Century within three years by staging a trillion-dollar nation-building experiment in the Middle East? Why not a “blacklist” for those currently trying to broker the convention to throw out the will of the people, or those who would rather support Hillary Clinton because at least they’ll still be able to gin up donations for opposing her?

Learn more about the many faces of Amanda Carpenter at Wikipedia here.

You can tweet Ms. Amanda here.  And, LOL! you can’t make this up! Love one another! She lists the Bible verses 1 John 4:7-9 on her tweet profile.

As I’ve been saying all along, I’m not calling myself a conservative anymore if girls like Amanda are now in charge of deciding who can be admitted to that elite group and who can’t!
