2020. Orwell's world come tragically real.

Has nobody noticed how racially exploitative the Black Lies Matter Momentum organization is?
Why has nobody stopped to question how and why this organization has adopted a hashtag and used it to raise a fortune, estimated to be in excess of $1.5 Billion and funneled it, not into improving the living conditions of African-Americans in squalid Democrat-controlled inner cities, but through a slush fund operation called ACT BLUE - not Act Black, but Act Blue, as in blue for the Democratic Party.
The money to be used to win or steal an election to drive Momentum into power.
Make African Americans aware that they are being fooled and exploited by a self-admitted Marxist ideology that has been using them literally as cannon fodder for their radical aims.
Do it now before America is lost forever.
This is America today;
Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.
Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.
Welcome to the world of the 2020 Democrat Party. Soaked in radicalism and tilting yet further toward Marxism and lawless anarchy.
Look around America and tell me this is not Orwell “2020” being played out in real time as a dysfunctional and deranged America goes to the polls, polls that will be won by the Party by fair means or foul.

BLM mission statement. No family. No God. Only BLM Marxism.

Read my articles or hear my interviews.
BLM mission statement includes destroying traditional family framework (father, mother, kids). They are against patriarchal systems. They want to replace the nuclear family with some sort of caring society. You couldn't make this up, but it is their future plan.
They are also against faith. Nothing should be worshipped and obeyed except their rule. That's why churches are being torched, synagogues are being desecrated, and statues of Jesus, Mary, and Moses have to come down. One statue that remains untouched, in pristine condition, is the statue of Vladimir Lenin in Seattle. I wonder why? Is it because this is their future, not their past?
It is all part of their self-declared quer-based manifesto. (Read 'What We Believe').
What has shocked me has been how many "progressive" white folk in America know this and still intend to vote Democrat in the 2020 election.
They hate Trump so much they prefer to cast their vote for Marxism and anarchy.
America has lost its collective mind.

Wear your mask, and save a life.

I came across this poignant story from Jerusalem-based, David Jablinowitz, that is worthy of sharing with you.
It was told to him by a regular bus driver in Jerusalem.

This nameless driver tells of a child, no older than ten, who sat on the first row of his bus.

The boy greeted every passenger who got on the bus with either, "Please make sure your mask stays properly. I don't want my Saba and Safta (grandfather and grandmother) to get sick," or "Thank you for wearing a mask. Because of you, my Saba and Safta hopefully won't get sick."

As the small boy was preparing to get off the bus, the driver, barely holding back his emotions, praised the child.
The boy explained to the driver that he had visited his grandparents for the first time in months and his grandmother pleaded with him to tell everybody he sees to thank those who wore a mask.
His Safta had told him, "If everyone follows the rules your Saba and I hopefully won't get sick and you won't have to stop visiting us again." 

I got a sense that what his Safya was telling him was that if people do not wear their masks, the little boy will not have a Safta and Saba to visit.

Speaking as someone in the vulnerable age group, please listen to the little boy. Wear your mask. It may be inconvenient, but you could save a live, and that life may be your grandparents, or mine.

Appreciation for White Exploration and Discovery

You can’t have a sense of history or create a better future by bulldozing the past. That is what Black Lies Matter are doing
Destroying the statue of the man who discovered America is a metaphor of what they are doing. Christopher Columbus. What would America be like today if it had not been discovered by men like Columbus, men with pioneering minds? Explorers going where no man went before, reaching out over water, land and space to discover new worlds.
Without the spirit of adventure and curiosity of people like Columbus, what would the continent of America be today? Would it be the extraordinary beacon of progress, freedom and democracy? Or would it be a large barren backwater?
Lincoln led the way to emancipation and progress which African-Americans and minorities enjoy today, hampered though they are by Democrat governance and exploitation.
Wouldn't an undiscovered America be like parts of Africa and the Middle East? Desolate desperate territories where poverty, wars and slavery still prevail?
Would these places be made better or worse with more Western intervention of innovation, science, technology, freedoms and democracy?
So why this nonsense of white guilt and white privilege?
White enlightenment and progress has lit up the places it has shone its light. It has given them order, education, infrastructure, development. 
White innovation, created out of enquiring minds and intelligence has improved health, science and technology that makes the world a better place, to people of all colors and faiths, or those of no faith whatsoever..
So, when people curse the founding of America let them think of what America would be without the intervention of brave explorers and men of spirit eager to create a better world.
To say differently is regressive, even racist.

Muslims can pray in Jerusalem. It’s easy. Come in Peace.



I read an article in the London edition of the Al-Arab newspaper.
It is always interesting from a strategic point of view to get a feeling of the mood of the Arab world and this article entitled “Now is not the time for chants about Jerusalem” was built around the premise of Muslim yearning to pay in Jerusalem. From an Israeli perspective, that Yearning is indelibly linked with conquest, and conquest brings with it wars and terror in failed attempts to eradicate the Jewish State.
If Arabs were as honest as Kheir Allah Kheir Allah, the author of the piece, it would become obvious to any practical Arab or Muslim that there is one overriding way they can indeed pray in Jerusalem that wouldn’t demand bloodletting as a way of achieving that ambition.
I will get to that solution later in this assessment.
Mr. Allah gives us a glimpse into the realities of most of the Middle East. It is not a pretty picture.
He invites us to look at Lebanon.
While Hezbollah chief, Hassan Nasrallah implores his minions to jihad in order to pray in Jerusalem, he does this from his protected bunker in a secure, but not so covert, location.  Believe me when I tell you that Israel knows exactly where he is located.
Hezbollah has ruined Lebanon, financially as well as politically. They have wasted the resources of that country fighting Iranian battles in Syria that has decimated the Lebanese economy.
Mr. Allah tells us that the Lebanese banking system is on the verge of collapse and, as long as Nasrallah is pulling the Lebanese purse strings, there is no immediate incentive for the World Bank, the IMF, or anyone else to come along and rescue them with Hezbollah choking Lebanon.
Abdullah al-Wardat, the regional director of the World Food Program, predicts that over a million Lebanese are at risk of falling below the food poverty line this year.
With Lebanon in such dire straits it is incredible to think that only a number of years ago this country was the “Switzerland of the Middle East,” the banking center of the region. Beirut was called the Cote d’Azur of the eastern Mediterranean. 
Those were the heady days before Arafat’s PLO, before the Assad father Syrian intervention, the rise of Islamic Hezbollah, and the interference of Iran.
These were peaceful days when Christians were fully 50% of the population and government rule was by amicable division of labors.
Look at it now. Christians have fled. It is the epicenter of divisiveness with Hezbollah profiting from global drug trade and money-laundering operations, including in Europe, the profits of which it refuses to share with the Lebanese population to drag it out of its misery.  It exports its indoctrinated manpower to fight proxy wars for Iran and Syria.
Which takes us to Syria in which a London opthamologist heralded a brighter future but who turned out to be an Alawite butcher.
Syria is now lying in total ruin with an estimated 13 million refugees or displaced people, more than half the population of that country. The death toll in Assad’s war against his own people is given at over half a million, including tens of thousands of children.
Al-Arab puts the number of Syrian’s living below the poverty line at 86%.
They also put the figures needed to protect Assad, his family and his coterie at an estimated $30 Billion. This is just to protect the Syrian leader’s grip on power. It is assessed that it will take in excess of $500 Billion to reconstruct Syria.
Who exactly is going to cover that cost? Hardly Iran. They are ambitious to use Syria as a battlefront runway against Israel but, as we have seen, Israel is savvy about what Iran is up to and strikes frequently, without boots on the ground, to destroy the Iranian forward bases and weapon assembly facilities which leaves Syria with even more collateral damage.
As for the Palestinians, they have become a distraction, a nuisance, for much of the Arab world that knows all too well they are nothing more than an occasionally deadly pinprick in the side of Israel.
Many Arab critics blame Palestinian leaders for missing too many opportunities for peace. In short, they have lost patience with them and are paving semi-covert relationships with Israel.
Any righteous Muslim is aware that Palestinians make false claims to ownership over Islamic holy shrines in Jerusalem. Their history places the wardenship of these shrines with the Hashemite Jordanian king. This was a position, often thought wrongly by Israelis, that was adopted by Moshe Dayan after Israel re-liberated the Old City of Jerusalem in a defensive war against Jordan in 1967.
In the battle for Jerusalem, the IDF succeeded in driving Jordanian forces out of the city. The Jordanians had occupied the eastern side of Jerusalem in an earlier war of aggression in 1948. 
During the 19 years of their occupation of Jerusalem, they had brutally driven all the Jews out of their ancestral homes in the Old City, deliberately destroyed all the Jewish synagogues and teaching centers, used Jewish gravestones from the Mount of Olives as paving stones, and the Jewish Temple walls as urinals.
Based on such a history, Israel can be forgiven for trusting nobody but itself for protecting the faith freedoms in the holy city of Jerusalem. But this gives an opportunity to Muslims who wish to pray in peace in Jerusalem.
Having to accept that peaceful prayers comes with the necessary price of security to all, there is no reason why Muslims cannot make their pilgrimage to Jerusalem just as Jews and Christians do on a regular undisturbed and protected basis.
Allowing their citizens to visit Israel may require Arab readers to literally bite the bullet and accept that Israel is ready to welcome their people on condition they come in peace.
Their visitors will be vetted by Israeli security and intelligence agencies for obvious reasons. This can be done partly by cooperation between Israel and the visitors government intelligence agencies.
I accept this may seem like a fantasy but, quite honestly, so was the two-state solution. That was a non-starter due to the duplicitous flawed character of the Palestinian leadership starting with Arafat and continuing with Mahmoud Abbas and all the Hamas/Palestinian Islamic Jihad bad actors. That fantasy turned out to be a nightmare for Israelis.
But, in the yearning to “give peace a chance” it may be worthy for Israel to welcome and let Arab and Muslim visitors see Israel as a prosperous, diverse peaceful society.
The problem of that may be that these visitors will return home to discover how regressive their own countries are compared to Israel, and how much they have been lied to through the years by their past leaders about the Jewish State.

Rioting Democratic Cities. Chaos, or Coordinated Mayhem?


What we just witnessed in the pandemic of riots, mainly based in Democrat states and cities, is the future of the Democratic Party.
Well-meaning people took to the streets to identify with the death of an African-American at the hands of the police. His death was filmed. It was awful to watch. The people were justified in identifying with that man’s suffering. To show that they care. They called it a protest against injustice, although the cop who killed George Floyd had been arrested and charged with murder. Justice was already in the process of being served.
No matter. The numbers swelled rapidly city by city. Mainly Democratic cities. The voices grew louder, more raucous, and, not unexpectedly, the violence erupted.
First, the target was the police. Vehicles and buildings were torched. Not all were police property. Other official buildings were ignored. Were they deliberately avoided?  Instead, the growing crowds became a mob, and the targets were the cities commercial districts.
Like a raging fire, the arsonists and looters destroyed commercial stores, private shops and vehicles.
To an untrained eye it seemed like anarchy, but the media called it justified anger, a protest that must be understood with sympathy.
The authorities restrained the police. Held them back and let the herd momentum take its course. Like a virus it rapidly spread its infection. This virus destroyed property and livelihoods. It was not incidental. There was motive and method behind it.
There was intent behind the mayhem.
The violent riots and apparent chaos, including arson and the wanton prolonged destruction of property and uncontrolled looting, was a symbiotic dance.
This crisis turned out to be the perfect storm.
It was hardly an accident that in every city the pattern was the same. Growing crowds looking for action, government stand down, total destruction unchallenged.
When this repeated itself city after city, day after day, you didn’t have to be a detective to see organized intent.
This was a symbiotic course of action loosely choreographed between local government, radical organizations, and the media, each with their intertwining ultimate goal. A hybrid desire for continued mayhem and economic distress to sway an angry public ahead of a vital upcoming election. The timing couldn’t have been better coming as it did at the tail end of a harmful virus lockdown.
Riots, burning everything in their way, pillaging. Smashing stores and buildings, taking whatever they could grab for free. Not caring who pays for the damage and the loss.
Intelligent people would call it robbery, arson and vandalism, but the looters see if differently.
They hate capitalism. They hate people who use their imagination, their money, and the ability to use their talents and hard work to try and build up small businesses, eventually in some cases becoming big businesses, that employ people.
They hate the whole notion of such an enterprise. They want to tear it down and take whatever they can grab.
What we saw on the streets of Democratic cities was a microcosm of Democratic big government. Take it from those that do and give it for free to those that don’t.
What we witnessed was Democratic policy crudely played out on the streets of Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, LA, and DC.  This is what the radical wing of the Democratic Party is promising the looters.
The protest of racial justice based on the killing of a black man by a white cop in Minneapolis was built on a questionable premise.  
True, the George Floyd killing was a tragic horror, but there is ample evidence the argument of police targeting innocent African-Americans being systemic in American society is heavily disputed by statistics and evidence.
Data provided by Statista, an independent, reliable and unbiased research center with global coverage in over 160 countries, showed that almost 50% more white people were shot by police between 2017 and 2020 than black people. 1268 to 698.
This was confirmed by Manhattan Institute fellow, Heather McDonald, who testified before a US Congressional Committee that an “epidemic of racially biased police shootings against black men” is false.
On the contrary, she said, “if there is a bias in police shootings, it is against white civilians,” quoting from a report by the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
The authors of that research were the universities of Maryland and Michigan, not exactly Republican strongholds.
Black radio host, Larry Elder, said, “It is not true that police go about mowing down black people.”
He quoted the CDC report that, in the last 45 years in America, killings of blacks by police have decreased by 75%, and in 2019 nine unarmed black people were killed by police as opposed to 19 unarmed white people.
“You don’t know the names of white people killed by the police,” he said, “because it happens all the time.”
The fulcrum of the current wave of disorder was the horrible killing of George Lloyd. Thousands took to the streets across America to protest this outrage. But no one took to the streets when a colored officer shot an innocent white woman to death outside her home in Minneapolis.
In 2017, officer Mohamed Noor shot and killed female Justine Damond outside her home. She was totally innocent.  Zero protests on behalf of the victim, or women killed by cops.
In the end, the bad cop received a 12-and-a-half-year prison sentence.
There was a short-term campaign, but not on behalf of Justine. It was an attempt to get the killer cop released from jail by angry protests including the slogan, “Free Mohamed Noor!”
Justine’s family won a $20 million law suit against the city, which will probably reflect the level of justice that Lloyd’s family will receive.
The important point here is that the city and the cop were found guilty of negligence and homicide. Not the President, as anti-Trump haters and the media projected recently over the Lloyd incident.
It was clearly a Democratic screw up as the Damond family statement spelt out after Lloyd’s murder, that Minneapolis learned nothing since Justine’s murder and had “not made adequate changes to their practices and training as we told they would after Justine’s murder.”
In other words, the Lloyd murder was a continuation of this Democratic city’s systemic failure, not a global race issue, and in no way connected to the President.
So what is going on, even beyond Minneapolis?
It had nothing to do with George Lloyd. The mob, and their organizers, did not listen to Lloyd’s family imploring them not to dishonor the memory of their dead brother and son by their violence and anarchy.
George Lloyd became a hashtag to hang a political street campaign. Just like #MeToo, #GeorgeLloyd carried a bias.  
Floyd today is a forgotten man.
It has nothing to do with the victim. It has everything to do with overturning a Trump Republican presidency.
It was a Democrat that said “never like a crisis go to waste.”?  It has become a party policy.
It includes the deliberate destruction of the economy. It is the Cloward-Piven strategy of community negative activism to change the face of government.
The Democratic Party is powered at local level by radical elements financed by wealthy non-elected manipulators.  The agenda is to take power locally, at state level, with the ultimate goal of usurping national power by fair means or foul, structured in a way that can never be reversed.
This role of state and city governance is to give the people what the powerful think they need. They fill their local councils with activists, their court benches with liberal judges that pervert constitutional law. They fill their towns with illegal immigrants and offer them freebies to keep them voting for them. They are working hard to restructure a voting system that will allow them to defraud the system and ride them into power.
At national level, the leading Democrat candidates all declared they would overspend. Just vote Democrat and get free education, free everything from the cradle to the grave, including abortions whenever you want, even after birth. Driving licenses and voting rights for illegal immigrants. Free bail-out for criminals awaiting trial, and no jail sentence for most. Those arrested for violent crimes and destruction during the riots know they have nothing to fear in Democratic states.
Is it any wonder that mayors and governors ordered their police forces to stand down and let the rioters rampage through their commercial districts? It was an unwritten, unspoken, cooperative venture with the hard left activist wings of the Democrat Party.
The Democrats have replaced law and order with no law and disorder. And it seems to be working for them.
And those economically damaged by the dwindling work opportunities as a result of both their virus lockdown policies and the widespread destruction of protest, will be given unemployment money higher than the minimum wage. So why work?  Just keep voting Democrat.
It’s an appealing message for millions of losers.  It’s message for troublesome people looking for power. Like the anarchists, the Marxists, the Communists. Like the radical bullyboys of Antifa and BlackLivesMatter who know how to manipulate a mass protest and direct the masses into action, negative action, like burning other people’s buildings and taking other people’s stuff in the name of protest.
Today’s riots will eventually die down, but which party will the looters and destroyers attach themselves to in their search for more free stuff? Take a guess.
It is worse than a virus.
This is a cancer that is metastasizing in America. This cancer has attached itself to the body politics of the Democratic Party.
This cancer feeds off the soft tissue and organs of a party that doesn’t yet feel the pain. The Democrat body welcomes them, feeds them, encourages them.
They don’t yet understand that this cancer is going to destroy them, if it doesn’t destroy America first.
Democrats think need this cancer in their obsessive quest for power. A fateful November is on the horizon. They think they can control the cancer, but the cancer is controlling them. 
Post-election, win or lose, old Democratic tissues will be replaced by stronger more radical tumors that will attach themselves to important organs enveloping and destroying the body that feeds it –democratic liberal progressive America.
The pain felt in Minneapolis, Los Angeles. San Francisco, Detroit, New York, the soft underbelly of “progressive” America, will not be cured by a November Democratic victory. 
And even if they lose 2020, the radical cancer will continue to spread within the Democratic body and throughout America hoping to emerge massively victorious come 2024.  
Let Democrats not fool themselves. This is not liberalism. This is not progressivism. This is not even Socialism. It is certainly not Americanism. This is Venezuela, Cuba, played out on a larger stage.  
It is intolerant and violent leftist fascism. It is the un-American heart of the Democratic Party. It is the de-structuring of America. It began in the Obama-Biden era. Today’s events are a continuation of their Baltimore and Ferguson legacy that elected weak incompetent leaders and pandered to the violent.
Conditions deteriorated rapidly in Obama-Biden inner cities despite their charismatic words that charmed and fooled the masses.
We see today the Saul Alinsky doctrine of Rules for Radicals, the strategy of local persuasion to a momentary cause while disguising the ultimate goal, the collapse of the economy by using a crisis to press home a political agenda, including publicly visible disruption and destruction to attract attention and drive willing hands to the cause of regime change. 
This is not democracy. It is the law of the jungle, which is no law at all.
A compliant media spreads the lies and misrepresents what was going on.  
“They don’t know what to do with that emotion, so they respond by lashing out. Do you see all this damage here? Acting out gets attention,” says CNN, koshering the violence, arson, and ruin of local communities.  As if thousands of looters, rushing in and out of Apple, Target, and other destroyed stores, with trolleys full of stolen goods, were doing this to get attention.
Speaking of CNN, another propagandist is Don Lemon. “Open your eyes America! We are teetering on a dictatorship,” after the President offered the National Guard to governors to restore law and order to America’s major cities.
Let me advise Mr. Lemon that America is teetering on the brink of anarchy, not dictatorship, due to lack of effective action by the authorities who are allowing their cities to burn to the ground.
The only question that requires answers is this is due to incompetence, or is it deliberate?
Why are piles of bricks mysteriously deposited at the roadside of forthcoming protests where there is no construction going on?
Why were bottles found with explosive additives down alleyways close to protest routes?
An Illinois man was arrested handing out explosives at a Minneapolis protest rally.
Baltimore, Ferguson, Detroit haven’t recovered, a decade after the Obama riots. These neighborhoods are a metaphor for Democratic America.
The Ferguson effect is seen all across America today where the rioters, looters and arsonists are given the freedom of the city in the name of Black Lives Matter. Thus began the downward spiral of decency by liberal Democrats.
Who in their right mind would reinvest in such troublesome communities? Justice for looters is a revolving door in Democratic courts. In New York, the policy of no bail fees is the brainchild of Governor Cuomo. Crime isn’t a crime. Criminals aren’t criminals. Store owners can only cry in frustration after the looters are arrested and released back onto the streets.  This is Democratic justice.
More evidence of the collusion between the rioters and the lack of police involvement came from former NY mayor and crime-fighter, Rudi Giuliani. He said that Bill De Blasio was interfering in the enforcement of the law. He accused the mayor of phoning his police chiefs and ordering them not to enforce the law.  “He is holding back the police department.”
This was confirmed by David Paterson, the former Democratic Governor of New York, who said, “We are dealing with a different kind of riot than we did years ago. We have outside agitators.”
“This is happening in Democratic progressive cities that are friendly with criminals,” Rudi Giuliani said to Fox News Sean Hannity.
A final word about the police is this. In the recent violence more police officers were injured than protesters
Leo Terrell is a civil rights lawyer and a Democrat. He is alarmed by what he has seen to express himself this way;
“We people of color want law and order. You know why these mayors and governors won’t bring in the National Guard? They don’t want to acknowledge that President Trump is absolutely right, and they don’t want to give him the credit.”
I will go one step further. They don’t do it because it doesn’t fit their political agenda which is diametrically opposite to that of a President who wants a prosperous America and was giving it to them before the virus and the rioting.
In a previous article, I wrote about the anecdotal tweeting of a person called Chris Martin Palmer. Hee HeH sent out a series of tweets as raging riots spread in his wealthy Los Angeles. As a Democrat, he thrilled by what the protesters were doing as he posted a picture of a burning Minneapolis building.
“Burn that s**t down! Burn it all down!” he thrilled.
The building happened to be an affordable housing project for the homeless and poor people.
CMP deleted that tweet, but you can’t delete a cancer, Chris.
As the raging arson fires moved in the direction of his own Los Angeles neighborhood, he still didn’t get it.
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world,” tweeted the excitable Chris. “A historic event. I will try to capture plenty images.”
The destruction of people’s properties and hard-earned businesses was just a selfie to him. No pain – yet.
By the time it moved into his rich neighborhood, he was getting worried.
“You bring that shit to our neighborhood and I’m gonna have a real problem with it. There’s a lot of people up here who care and are angry. Attacking our neighborhood kills the movement and disgraces George Floyd. Are the Beverly Hills cops jerks?”
Then, “They destroyed Starbucks and are now in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood!”
Too late, Chris. The cancer is in your party and it’s far too late for surgery.
Now Chris can do some self-reflection. Were the riots really chaos, or organized mayhem? And does he now subscribe to their goals?
Chris may get it, but too many voters haven’t. They are still oblivious of what is happening in front of their eyes.
The final question has to be, are you voting with the mob, or against them?

The Cancer in the Democratic Party. And it’s far too late for surgery.


What we just witnessed in the recent riots is the future of the Democratic Party.
A large number of well-meaning people took to the streets to identify with black folk. To show them that they care. They called it a protest against injustice, although the cop who killed George Floyd had been arrested and charged with murder, so justice was already in the process of being served.
But well-meaning events became angry protests and then turned into something worse. Much worse.
Riots, arson, pillaging. Smashing stores and buildings, taking whatever they could grab for free. Not caring who is going to pay for the damage, the loss.
Intelligent people would call it robbery and vandalism, but the looters see if differently.
They hate capitalism. They hate the people who use their imagination, their money, their talents, their hard work, to try and build up small businesses, eventually big businesses, that employ people.
They hate the whole notion of such an enterprise. So they destroy and they take whatever they can grab.
This is what they want in a world of big government. They want to suckle and survive off the money and the labor of others.
This basically is what the radical wing of the Democratic Party is promising them.  What we saw was Democratic policy crudely played out on the streets of Minneapolis.
This is what local and state Democrats are starting to give them. You don’t even have to be legally in their state or town to get the freebies. Local government will give you what you want. Just vote for them. The money will be provided by the hard-working middle class, by federal government.
Even when the state and the city has overspent, wildly overspent, someone else will pay. Just vote Democrat and they will give your kids free education, that is if you kid wants to learn. If not, no worries. Local government will give you unemployment money, even higher than you would get if you were working.
Just vote Democrat.
It’s an appealing message for millions of losers.  It’s message for troublesome people looking for power. Like the anarchists, the Marxists, the Communists. Like the radical bullyboys who know how to manipulate a mass protest and direct the masses into action, negative action like burning other people’s buildings and taking other people’s stuff.
Today’s riots will die down but which party will these looters and destroyers attach themselves to in their thirst for power and more free stuff?
It is worse than a virus.
This is the cancer that is metastasizing in America. This is the cancer that has attached itself to the body politics of the Democratic Party.
This cancer feeds off the soft tissue and organs of a party that doesn’t yet feel the pain. The Democrat body welcomes them, feeds them, encourages them.
They don’t yet understand that this is a cancer that is going to destroy them.
The Democrats need them inside their body in their obsessive quest for power. A fateful November is on the horizon so they call it something else. Anything but a cancer that is going to devour them.
Maybe they think they can control the cancer. Clearly, as we saw in too many cities, they can’t. The cancer will grow, eating away as it does within a body until even chemotherapy will not cure it.
Old Democratic tissues will be replaced by stronger more radical tumors that will attach themselves to important organs destroying them as they eat the body that feeds the cancer.
The pain felt in Minneapolis, Los Angeles. San Francisco, Detroit, New York, the soft underbelly of “progressive” America, will not be cured by a November victory. 
Should be Democrats win it will herald the death knell of America.
It will be too late for treatment, too late for chemotherapy to remove the cancer. The cancer will, by then, or by 2024, be controlling the body of the Democratic Party.
My last article about the current crisis talked about race. I was wrong. This is way beyond issues of race. What we witnessed was the cancerous heart of American politics. The cancer today has attached itself to racial issues. It has already spread to other issues and policies as it metastasizes and invades the Democratic body.
This is not liberalism. This is not progressivism. This is not even Socialism. It is certainly not Americanism. This is closer to Venezuela. To Cuba.
It is intolerant and violent leftist fascism. It is the un-American heart of the Democratic Party. This is the de-structuring of America that began under the Obama-Biden era. It is a continuation of their Baltimore and Ferguson legacy that elected weak incompetent leaders and pandered to the violent.
Conditions deteriorated rapidly in the inner cities under Obama-Biden.
It is the Cloward-Piven strategy of collapsing the economy by using a crisis in order to press home your political agenda, including publicly visible disruption and destruction to attract attention and drive willing hands to the cause of regime change. 
It is filling the country with illegal immigrants, filling the country with illegal drugs, filling court benches with compliant judges, changing the voting system to enable unidentified masses to cast ballots en-masse for the Party.
 It is the Rahm Emmanuel’s “never let a crisis go to waste.”
It is the Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals,” the organized gathering of the masses into community disruption.
The Democrats have learned nothing. A CNN reporter misrepresented what was going on in Minneapolis.  “They don’t know what to do with that emotion, so they respond by lashing out. Do you see all this damage here? Acting out gets attention.”
As if the hundreds of looters who were rushing in and out of Apple, Target, and other destroyed stores with trolleys full of stolen goods were doing it to get attention. Give me a break, CNN!
Baltimore, Ferguson, Detroit haven’t recovered ten years after the Obama riots. Is it any wonder? Who in their right mind would reinvest in such troublesome communities?
These neighborhoods are a metaphor for America if these radical anarchists take over the Democratic Party.
A person called Chris Martin Palmer sent out a series of tweets as raging riots spread in his town. He thrilled by what the protesters were doing as he posted a picture of a burning Minneapolis building.
“Burn that s**t down! Burn it all down!” he thrilled.
The building happened to be an affordable housing project for the homeless and poor people.

The destruction of people’s properties and hard-earned businesses was just a selfie to him. No pain – yet.
By the time it moved into his rich neighborhood, he was getting worried.
“You bring that shit to our neighborhood and I’m gonna have a real problem with it. There’s a lot of people up here who care and are angry. Attacking our neighborhood kills the movement and disgraces George Floyd. Are the Beverly Hills cops jerks?”
Then, “They destroyed Starbucks and are now in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood!”
Too late, Chris. The cancer is in your party and it’s far too late for surgery.
