The Fight Back for the Drug that Dare Not Speak its Name.

The Economic Standard, a highly reputable research group in Washington D.C., recently published its first white paper in which it states,

“We demonstrate, through meticulously sourced analysis that HCQ is a safe, versatile medicine that has treated hundreds of millions of people for many diseases over seven decades. Numerous controlled observational studies and meta-analyses have demonstrated that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can help people with Covid-19.

Hundreds of drugs have been approved by the US FDA on the basis of similar observational studies especially when conducted in large numbers and subject to meta-analysis as a matter of medical practice and especially in a pandemic emergency. It is not the case that only randomized controlled trials can justify adopting a treatment. HCQ should be more widely recommended, prescribed and promoted.”

The Lancet peer-reviewed “Overall mortality was lower in the HCQ group than in the group that did not receive hydroxychloroquine.”

A Belgian study published 24 August, 2020, concluded, “In this large nationwide observational study of patients hospitalized with COVID-19, HCQ monotherapy administered at a dosage of 2400 mg over 5 days was independently associated with a significant decrease in mortality compared with patients not treated with HCQ.

And yet we still have this ban preventing local doctors and clinics prescribing a drug that was approved and shown safe over 60 years for all sorts of diseases.

With the overwhelming weight of evidence that NCQ is a safe drug to be prescribed to early stage Covid patients, indeed as a prophylactic to prevent the onset of Covid, an international wave of protest has been raised by medical professionals against its ban and an even more mystifying lockdown of reputable voices shouting out in support of this efficient drug. Even Big Tech has joined the fight in silencing voices.

Anyone who tells you that there is no evidence that HCQ is a safe and effective drug and claim that it is dangerously lethal is either lying, has a malevolent agenda, or both.

Highly regarded physicians and medical specialists have told me that had first line physicians and local clinics been given the freedom to use their professional skills and allowed to prescribe the right drugs in the right combinations and dosages, including as a prophylactic, the number of people becoming hospitalized and dying would have been dramatically reduced.

All the pain and suffering we are seeing across the nation, all the death and loss of family members and friends, could be reduced if only health officials and bureaucrats would get out of the way and give the freedom to allow local doctors to treat their patients with care and compassionate, and without threats from above.

It is important to highlight a case example of the fraudulent accusations levelled against HCQ that has cast a false stain on the reputation of a safe drug with a long pedigree of success. I refer to the flawed review published in The Lancet, a malicious rumor that circulated around the world that HCQ was dangerous.

Lancet later found that their report was based on fraudulent data. They had to apologize for it but damage was done, damage caused by Sapan Desai, founder of a tiny and disreputable data-supply company, Surgisphere, who fabricated data against hydroxychloroquine before going public and claim that HCQ caused an increase of ventricular arrhythmia during hospitalization.

Based on this fraudulent article studies were stopped and several health authorities banned the drug.

Some people say that Desai should be in jail for the fraudulent damage he caused. He is free, but the drug remains banned.

People need to ask what was this man’s motivation? Was it ego? Was it money? Was it an ambition to work his way into the heady health establishment elite?

But the damage was done. And it needs to be undone.

Health authorities, backed by people with vested interests, determined to block a drug of proven efficacy, quoting clinical late stage trials that showed, in few cases, critically ill patients experienced heart defects. They were all put down to effects of HCQ.

But these late stage trials have been questioned and criticized by leading cardiac surgeons, immunologists and epidemiologists.

Leading the charge has been renowned epidemiologist, Professor Harvey Risch, who has been outspoken about the way that HCQ was applied in critical late stage trials. He points to instances of overdosing and not administrating HCQ in recommended combination with other medications, including zinc and azithromycin.

Professor Risch’s main criticism is that hydroxychloroquine should not have been used in any late stage trials but rather be confined to treating early stage Covid sufferers, preferably applied with other recommended drugs to patients within the first five days of contracting Covid, or even as a safe and effective prophylactic to prevent the onset of the disease.

The case can be made that the reason why Israel has seen a sharp ramping up of hospitalizations and an alarming number of deaths can be at least partly blamed on first line doctors and clinics in close intimately contact with their patients being preventing from prescribing a cheap safe drug that has proven itself to be effective for over half a century.

If science require data, let doctors treat their patients so that an Israeli database can be built that will ultimately show the efficiency of hydroxychloroquine in treating early stage Covid patients.

Biden’s Deadly Promise.

The Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act of 2018, more commonly known as the Taylor Force Act, was a direct punishment against the Palestinian Authority for abusing the naivety of previous United States Governments in pandering to Palestinian anti-Semitic duplicity.

For years, the message from Israel was that you can’t be altruistic toward those who want to kill you. This is a principle that is etched into the Jewish soul from too many past experiences.

Yet US Administrations catered to the "victimhood" demands of the Palestinians.

Governments, burdened with the notion that a two-state solution is the only answer to the Israel-Palestinian impasse, have been hectoring Israel while funding Palestinian rejectionism and violence.

Obama-Biden bought into the nonsense that peace can only come when Israel withdraws to vulnerable 1967 borders which, in 1967, were never borders at all.

They gave money to terrorists and threatened to cut off aid to Israel if Jews went to live in Judea & Samaria known, in another act of duplicity, as the West Bank.

The West Bank of what?  Jordan?  Dive into that conundrum and you end up on Israel’s side.

Jordan invaded the nascent Jewish State more than once with a determination to kill or drive out Jews from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, turning the land into a Jew-free territory.

Thank G-d they failed. However, they occupied all of Judea and Samaria including the Old City of Jerusalem in a war of aggression in 1948 until 1967 when they, and other armies, decided to obliterate the rest of Israel.  

Against all odds, the Israeli Defense forces liberated Jerusalem and drove the Jordanian army not only out of the Old City, but all the way back across the Jordan River.

Calling it "the West Bank" as if it is still the western part of Jordan is an anathema to Israelis. It also points to the lie of national Palestinian claims to this land. 

There wasn’t a Palestinian entity until an Egyptian, Yasser Arafat, decided to become a Palestinian revolutionary, cloaked himself in a keffiyeh, dressed himself in an army uniform, and strapped a pistol to his belt.

Then all hell let loose!  Massacres, plane hijackings, a terror war now in its 40th year. All based on Jew hatred. All sound and fury, signifying a lie.

One victim that got in the way of Palestinian hatred of Jews was Taylor Force, a Christian Texan visiting Israel on a Vanderbilt University study group examining global entrepreneurship.

Sadly, he got in the way of a Palestinian terrorist on a stabbing rampage in the old port of Jaffa. Eleven Israelis were stabbed plus Taylor, who died of his injuries. The attacker was shot dead by the Israeli police after a chase along the Tel Aviv beach front.

Such terrorists are glorified in Palestinian circles. Taylor’s killer is called a martyr even to today, and his family continues to receive a monthly stipend from the Palestinian Authority courtesy, until President Trump came along, of American taxpayers’ money.

Most egregiously, most European government continue to contribute to this awful “Pay to Slay” policy.

The Taylor Force Act of 2018 stopped giving $200 million annually to the PA.  

The Act also allows Americans to sue in its courts against those receiving US foreign aid over alleged complicity in “acts of war.” This also applies to acts of terror against US citizens abroad. As a result of this the US Government has stopped more than $60 Million to the Palestinian Authority by virtue of this clause.

To this day, the Palestinians continue to incite violence and terror, reject all peace proposals, and continue to kill Israelis, and anyone standing in their way.

And yet, Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has declared that he will renew payments to the Palestinian Authority with no pre-conditions.

He promised, "I will reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, find a way to re-open the PLO’s diplomatic mission in Washington, and resume the decades-long economic and security assistance efforts to the Palestinians that the Trump Administration stopped."

Which shows he learnt nothing in his eight-years in the White House.

The Zionist Organization of America called on Joe Biden to “fund American Jobs, not foreign Palestinian Arab Terrorists.”

Taylor’s parents have been vociferous in objecting to Biden’s Palestinian pledge.

However, it is far more likely that Biden will cater to his Red-Green Democrat Alliance than to the ZOA, or even to the family of a murdered American.

Biden is making the same fatal mistake that he, and his boss, Barrack Obama, made when they suckered up to the Mad Mullahs of Tehran with billions of dollars that went directly into their own “Pay to Slay” policy, as Iran reaped mayhem and bloodshed across the Middle East.

It is the Democrats version of throwing money against a problem hoping some of it will stick.

It won’t.

Biden must either retract this deadly promise, or be opposed in the upcoming US election.

Biden and Iran. Background detail you need to know.

Just 3 weeks after 9/11, Biden wanted to send $200 Million to Islamic terrorists.

He saw it as, in his words, what he had spent his entire adult life preparing for.

"This," Joe Biden announced to committee staffers, "is what I've spent my entire adult life preparing for."
At the Tuesday-morning meeting with committee staffers, Biden launches into a stream-of-consciousness monologue about what his committee should be doing, before he finally admits the obvious: "I'm groping here."

Then he hits on an idea: America needs to show the Arab world that we're not bent on its destruction. "Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran," Biden declared.

In short, Biden's response to a massive Islamic terror attack that brought America to its knees, was to appease the Mad Mullah of Iran.

As further evidence of Biden's dangerous foreign policy ideas, he threatened to impeach President Bush if he went ahead and destroyed Iran's nuclear missile facilities.

"I want it on the record, and I want to make it clear," Biden said. "If he does, I will move to impeach him."

Kaveh Mohseni, a spokesman for the Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran, calls Biden "a great friend of the mullahs."
He notes that Bidens election campaigns "have been financed by Islamic charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran network," a loosely-knit group of wealthy Iranian-American businessmen and women seeking to end the U.S. trade embargo on Iran. "In exchange, the senator does his best to aid the mullahs," Mohseni argues.

Another fact that should be exposed before the 2020 election.

In April 2020, as America was reeling from the pandemic, and Americans were facing economic ruin, 34 House and Senate Democrats, led by Diane Feinstein, signed a letter lobbying for the Trump Administration to lift sanctions to help Iran economically with an initial $5 Billion.

The Tyranny of an American Red-Black-Blue Alliance.

Two of the people who were threatened by the BLM-ANTIFA mob as they left the Republican National Convention at the White House were Senator Rand Paul and his wife.

Paul and his wife were just two of hundreds that were harrassed, insulted, and threatening by a mob of Democrat anarchists, most from out of town.

According to the Senator, a bunch of the anarchists, including one of the arrested rioters, flew in from other states and stayed at the expensive Willard Hotel ($500-$1000 a night).
Out of the 175 rioters arrested in Kenosha, 102 were not locals.
Who is paying for these travelling anarchists?
According to the records of BLM, the biggest contributor is Corporate America who openly admit they contribute to BLM where donations become a slush fund in which a huge chunk goes on personnel expenses.
The equivalent "personnel expenses" for money donated to the Palestinian Authority goes to pay terrorists who murder Israelis as part of their "Pay to Slay" reward policy.

The BLM version of "personnel expenses" is to cover the costs of their travelling domestic terrorists.
Evidence of this was the profile of 26-year old, Brennan Sermon, who flew from Orlando, Florida, to harass the senator and his wife. Sermon was arrested for assaulting a police officer who was protecting the Pauls causing the officer to be hospitalized for stitches to a deep cut.
Rand Paul said, after the incident, that he felt he would have been killed had the few policemen not been there.
A second contributor to the devastation caused in most Democrat cities is paid for the public who thought they were contributing to an altruistic cause.
They were wrong. They are defined in Soviet terms as "useful idiots." And as BLM is a Marxist organization, this makes sense.
The third biggest contributors to the destruction of American cities are local taxpayers who see their money wasted by mayors and local officials who order them into lockdown while allowing rioters to assemble enmasse to commit acts of arson, looting and destruction while preventing the police from stopping the violence.
Money donated to numerous BLM funding channels is in excess of $1.2 Billion. That's sufficient to pay for an insurgency and to corrupt the political system, including the voting system, come election day in America.
BLM money is also diverted through Act Blue which is a fund-raising channel for the Democrat Party. This is the symbiotic financial relationship between violence and politics.. An American Red-Black-Blue Alliance.
The main goal of the Marxists and anarchists, disguised as "social justice" warriors, is to force their policies into power using the Democratic Party as their Trojan Horse.

The Dangers to Israel of a Biden Administration.

Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, appealed to American Jewish voters with a promise not to condition US aid to Israel, but his word, based on past history, is disingenuous.

Biden, a Catholic, promising Catholic voters that he would represent their ethics and values even as he endorses pro-abortion rights and selected a Vice President who has built a political career funded by the pro-abortion lobby represented by Planned Parenthood.

Biden says one thing but does the opposite. Senator Biden in 1982 threatened to cut off US aid to Israel. In a heated exchange with Israeli Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, Biden banged on the table and delivered his threat to which Begin undiplomatically replied,

“Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them, And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”

In an administration that promised “no daylight” between the United States, Obama, Biden, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton did precisely the opposite.

Israel was furious at the Administration for leaking intelligence of an Israeli airstrike on a Syrian facility storing Russian surface-to-air missile systems.

A December 29, 2105  Wall Street Journal article detailed how the Obama Administration conducted surveillance on Israeli officials to discover how the Israeli government would react to their bad Iran Nuclear Deal. This broke the decades-old bipartisan US policy toward Israel.

The National Iranian-American Council, the de-facto Iranian lobbying force in Washington DC, applauded the DNC’s announcement that they intend to reverse President Trump’s sanctions on Iran if they come to power in the 2020 election.

Biden has pledged to revive Obama’s Middle East policies, particularly his highly criticized Iran Nuclear Deal which allowed Iran to develop not only its advanced missile program but also more sophisticated centrifuges buried in Iran’s underground facility at Natanz, scene of a mysterious explosion in August.  These centrifuges will speed up the enrichment of uranium needed to produce a nuclear warhead at a time of Iran’s choosing.

Thee disastrous fallout of this awful deal was a failure of not understanding that the Iranian regime would not use the money on its people but on broadening its malevolent regional intentions. The Obama-Biden generous gift of $150 Billion plus an additional $1.5 Billion cash payment enabled the Islamic regime in Tehran to extend their violent hegemony, directly and via their proxies, through Iraq, into Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, and further south in Yemen.

As Nikki Haley described it at the Republican National Convention, “Obama-Biden let Iran get away with murder and literally sent them a plane full of cash.”

This has left the Sunni Arab world with a dire sense of vulnerability. Inadvertently, it has driven moderate Arab states to first develop covert contacts with Israel and now, with the advent of the Israel-UAE peace deal, with open relationships and partnership.

The recognition for this miraculous development rests with President Donald Trump, not with the Obama-Biden Administration that left the Middle East and North Africa in bloody turmoil.

One of the unsung benefits of UAE’s decision to normalize their relationship with Israel was their official renunciation of a 47 year boycott policy against Israel.

In effect, this act killed the infamous BDS Movement at a stroke of the UAE pen. How is it possible for radical left activists, as well as certain members of Congress, to promote boycott campaigns against Israel when Arab states are not only dropping their boycotts but actively signing trade deals with Israel?

It is worth noting that although an attempt to oppose an anti-boycott bill in Congress was defeated, seventeen Democrats continued to support BDS and a further ten abstained from the vote. Two Democrat Presidential hopefuls absented themselves from the vote, as did House speaker, Nancy Pelosi.

Although Democrat representatives do attend the annual AIPAC Conference to show their support of Israel, the jury is out as to whether they do so to appeal to their Jewish and Christian constituents, rather than an affirmative love of Israel. The doubt stems from the failure of any Democrat Congress member to attend the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.  They also swerved the Israel Embassy celebration party in Washington DC.

But the unkindest cut of all was when Obama-Biden stabbed Israel in the back as they were leaving the White House. A vindictive out-going President, backed by his VP, failed to impose the United States veto in UN Security Council Resolution 2334 that decreed, wrongly, that Israeli towns and villages in Judea & Samaria were an illegal occupation.

More recently, Biden has said he does not support “annexation” which means he does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the large towns and villages in Judea & Samaria that are the homes, universities and work places of 600,00 Jews.

He went further by saying he would renew US funding to the Palestinian Authority ignoring their “Pay to Slay” reward payments to Palestinian terrorists and killers of Israelis.

Biden said he would reopen the PLO-PA Washington bureau, which this non-state calls its “embassy.”

Biden has embraced anti-Israel JStreet.

Former Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, privy to important policy issues emanating from the Oval Office, famously said that Joe Biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.

On the campaign trail, Biden has become an embarrassment. His faux pas and mumbling thoughts are a matter of concern for the Democrat faithful. Even the Chicago Sun Times, a paper that has endorsed the Democratic Party, fears that Biden’s diminished faculties will handicap their election chances. But Biden was never elected to affirmatively lead the country but to be the front man for the growing radical wing of the party. In an act of national deception, the Democrats try to project themselves as moderates in an effort to keep their traditional voters on board. In truth, the party has changed beyond recognition. It belongs to the Red-Green alliance, the Marxists and Islamists that control the party Establishment to the point that their elderly leaders take the knee to their demands and, should they take power, their policies.

One example of this change is personified in Ilhan Omar. Omar projected herself as the shining face of a culture sensitive public when she won her Minneapolis seat. She was supported by the Jews of her district as representing their progressive values. That was before the mask came off and she revealed her real self as an anti-Semitic Israel hater.

More recently, Omar has called for the dismantling of the police. She also called to “tear down the system.”  This radicalism shows where the heart of the Democrat Party lies.

Omar is portrayed as the future of the party. As a member of The Squad alongside Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez, they drive the Marxist-Islamist agenda.

It was not by accident that Joe Biden went public asking for a Million Muslim Vote. He spoke the words, but the campaign strategy was decided elsewhere. Biden has yet to go public and ask for a Million Jewish Votes. He won’t. This is not where the party is today.

Ilhan Omar is the fundraiser for the Council of American-Islamic Relations, the American Muslim Brotherhood. Even the United Arab Emirates called CAIR a terror group.

But the Democrat radicals in Congress are far more numerous than this quartet. As mentioned earlier, thirty of them followed their anti-Israel lead when it came to a vote. And their numbers will grow in the next Congress. Elliot Engel, one of the dwindling pro-Israel Democrats was easily defeated by a new radical in a recent primary.

This is the force what will set policy, not Biden. He will be a figurehead President, rolled out to sign policies, read speeches off teleprompters, and be seen shaking hands with visiting dignitaries. The business of government will be executed elsewhere.

Where the party will be, policy-wise, should they win the 2020 election, is reflected in Ilhan Omar. They elected her to sit on the US Foreign Affairs Committee failing to demote her following her numerous anti-Jewish and anti-Israel remarks.

They failed because this is where the power of the party is today.

Imagine a Democrat Administration with Ilhan Omar promoted to chair the US Foreign Affairs Committee.

When that happens what do you think will be the United States position on Israel?

America on the Brink.


I received this from a friend.  I thought I would share it with you.

Lots of facts written with humor and irony about the state of politics in America as they head to the most important election in our lifetime. 

From my distant perspective, America is teetering on the brink of anarchy and tyranny, courtesy of the Democrat Party.

Here are some interesting points to think about prior to 2020, especially to my friends on the fence, like moderate Democrats, Libertarians and Independents and the never Trump Republicans and those thinking of "walking away" from the Democratic party:

- Women are upset at Trump’s naughty words -- they also bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray.
- Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.
- No Border Walls. No voter ID laws. Did you figure it out yet? But wait... there's more...

- Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year. Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege. And just like that, they went from being against foreign interference in our elections to allowing non-citizens to vote in our elections.

- President Trump’s wall costs less than the Obamacare website. Let that sink in, America!

- We are one election away from open borders, socialism, gun confiscation, and full-term abortion nationally. We are fighting evil.

- They sent more troops and armament to arrest Roger Stone than they sent to defend Benghazi.

- 60 years ago, Venezuela was 4th on the world economic freedom index. Today, they are 179th and their citizens are dying of starvation. In only 10 years, Venezuela was destroyed by democratic socialism.

- Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign. Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation. But Trump was the one investigated!

- Nancy Pelosi invited illegal aliens to the State of the Union. President Trump Invited victims of illegal aliens to the State of the Union. Let that sink in.

- A socialist is basically a communist who doesn’t have the power to take everything from their citizens at gunpoint ... Yet!

- How do you walk 3000 miles across Mexico without food or support and show up at our border 100 pounds overweight and with a cellphone?

- Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wants to ban cars, ban planes, give out universal income and thinks socialism works. She calls Donald Trump crazy.

- Bill Clinton paid $850,000 to Paula Jones to get her to go away. I don’t remember the FBI raiding his lawyer’s office.

- I wake up every day and I am grateful that Hillary Clinton is not the president of the United States of America. The same media that told me Hillary Clinton had a 95% chance of winning, now tells me Trump’s approval ratings are low.

- “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”— Margaret Thatcher

- Maxine Waters opposes voter ID laws; She thinks that they are racist. You need to have a photo ID to attend her town hall meetings.

- President Trump said — "They’re not after me. They’re after you. I’m just in their way."

A President Kamala Harris. Catholics Must Be Quaking in Fear.

At the end of 2018, Kamala Harris went after Brian Buescher, a Catholic who was seeking to serve as a district judge in Nebraska.

Opposing this Republican nominee, Harris attacked his faith by insinuating that his involvement with a Catholic charity, The Knights of Columbus, should disqualify him from office. Her series of provocative questions revolved around her protecting Planned Parenthood, a national abortion industry that sells dead baby body parts for profit, and who has financed Kamala Harris’s political career.

Yet Harris tried to infer that it was a Catholic charity that was immoral.

Oh, the blind hypocrisy of paid-up Democrat politicians. 

Harris played the gender card as hard as any hardened prosecutor would, pulling insinuations out of the air, as seen in this rhetorical question as she attacked him for the ethics of his faith;

“Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as “a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.” Mr. Anderson went on to say that “abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale.” Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?”

Harris also attacked him on Catholicism’s position of gay marriage, implying that this would render him, or any Catholic, unfit to serve as a judge.

She failed to address Catholic ethics of dignity and value of human life, a value that conflicts with Harris’s own immoral hypocrisy when it come to the unborn.

Which raises the question, who has more credit when it comes to honoring human life, Judge Buescher or Senator Harris?

Buescher was confirmed to the bench by President Trump, and due to the efforts of Nebraska Republican Ben Sasse, the Senate voted unanimously to reaffirm the constitutional clause that forbids religious tests for public office-holders.

This was a defeat for Kamala Harris, a defeat that highlights her reprehensible anti-Catholic bigotry.

Despite the fact that Joe Biden is Catholic, perhaps a blind Catholic when faced with these facts, Kamala Harris, this paid apologist for the sellers of baby body parts, has been nominated to a position in which she will be just a baby’s heartbeat away from being the United States President.

Catholics must be quaking in fear.

A Jewish warrior is looming large in President Trump’s home district in Florida.
Laura Loomer came striding into the political arena because she is concerned at the American drift to a place she rebels against. She decided to take a stand. In fact, she has taken several stands as an angry individual who has attracted media attention.
Loomer was angry at the staged assassination of President Trump in a Central Park leftist adaption of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in which the Roman emperor was replaced by a lifelike Donald Trump. The bloody mock assassination of Trump on stage incensed Laura Loomer.
American presidential assassinations are nothing new and Loomer considered this public presentation an incitement, giving license to murder Trump, so she protested the event by leaping onto the stage and interrupting the production to much media acclaim.
Like too many conservative voices, Loomer has been banned from social media including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for pointing out Ilhan Omar’s anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slanders which Loomer rightly claims emanate from Omar’s personal background as an Islamist. I have written extensively about this in the past. Facts are on Loomer’s side, despite the ban.
Loomer is “the most banned woman in the world,” having been banned on every social media site for exposing gross examples of anti-Semitism.
Not being a supine quitter, in 2018, after being banned from Twitter, Loomer highlighted the Big Tech’s abuse of conservative opinions by chaining herself to the door of a local Twitter’s New York headquarters to protest her ban, claiming it was not hate speech.
It is important to note that, in America, there is no legal definition of hate speech. The Supreme Court having ruled there is no such thing as hate speech.
It was the assault on conservative voices and the blocking of free speech that triggered Loomer to enter politics.
Laura Loomer has launched a bid for Congress as a Republican candidate in Florida’s 21st Congressional District of Palm Beach County where President Trump and the First Lady, Melania Trump, live.
Some try to paint Laura Loomer as a racist, but she celebrated the launch of her political campaign at a local Boca Raton diner owned by a Muslim woman who immigrated from Pakistan.
The owner, Naheed Khan, told the UK’s Daily Mail that she is a practicing Muslim and was at first concerned about why Laura Loomer had done some of the things that had made headlines, so she and her pediatrician daughter invited Loomer for a chat where no questions were off limit.
“She’s not anti-Muslim,” Naheed concluded, “she’s anti-radicalism.”
Laura and Naheed share a couple of things in common. “We’re both fighters,” Loomer told the Daily Mail. And they both agree that people who immigrate into America need to assimilate and embrace American values. This, after all, has been the hallmark behind America’s successful history of immigration.
Laura Loomer is a highly charged, energetic individual with strong convictions. When she sees an injustice she acts on it, instinctively.
As with the Shakespeare incident, she felt that the cultural theft of a character to forge a false and biased allegory for political purposes was sufficient for her to perform her own drama to show the audience and a wider public the ultimate danger of the fake misrepresentation of the President leading to a conclusion that murder is the ultimate outcome to save Rome.
We see the current violence on American streets, the anarchy and the destruction, as a real life enactment of what had been presented on a Central Park stage. Laura Loomer is a rarity, a woman who is prepared to act and speak out against the anarchy by calling it for what it is.
It left her little option, as an American woman and a Jew who cares, but to take to the political stage.
This is a risky thing to do as America lurches to the intolerant left and counter voices are silenced, even physically attacked.
But Laura Loomer is a fighter. If you didn’t know her you’d think she was an Israeli. She has the spunk of an Israeli taking on forces larger and stronger than herself. And Israel is an issue she feels strongly about, not only because she is Jewish but because she sees the injustices being perpetrated against Israel by prominent members of the Democratic Party, and she is prepared to go to war against them both in public and in Congress.
27-year-old, Laura Loomer, plans to unseat the four-term Democrat incumbent, Lois Frankel, in Florida’s 21st District in order to become the youngest Representative ever elected to the United States Congress.
The Democrat Party has been trending downward in its position on Israel as radical new anti-Israel members replace Democrat elders and Israel fades as flavor of the year in that party. Elliot Engel was the latest Jewish Establishment figures fall to a new breed of radical Democrat lawmakers. Democrat veterans are loath to be seen publicly supporting Israel. They think it would come at a political or career cost. That’s how far left the party has drifted. That is why Lois Frankel, Loomer’s opponent, who also happens to be Jewish, did not come to Israel for the historic opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.
Loomer, on the other hand, did travel to Israel for the opening of the embassy.
Despite Florida’s 21st District being strongly Democrat, there is an unsettling political wind blowing from the far left across America, bringing with it a destructive storm that should worry middle class and wealthy voters, particularly Jewish voters, who are the core of the 21st District constituents.
Frankel voted with the majority against BDS attempts to boycott Israel, but sixteen of her party’s members actively promoted this anti-Israel legislation which is bound to rapidly reappear should the Democrats take power. It won’t be the Frankel’s that will dictate policy. It will be the Omars and the Tlaibs in control. Win or lose, it is certain that the number of Democrat radicals will multiply as an inevitable outcome of the 2020 elections.
This is certain based on the British experience in the Labour Party, where Palestinian flags waved at their Annual Conferences, where the issue of Palestine worked its way into the top five policies of a Labour Party drenched in the stench of anti-Semitism rising in its ranks.
Sound familiar, America?
Fortunately, in Britain, traditional Labour voters, many who had been in the party for 40 and 50 years, could not take the Corbyn-led party any longer. They walked away before the all-important Brexit election of 2019, which caused the Labour Party a timely defeat.
As early as 2017, this writer anticipated that we would see the emergence and spread of this Socialist anti-Semitic poison metastasize in the American Democrat Party, and it will fester and grow if left unchecked and unchallenged. This has happened far more rapidly than I predicted.
With the radical shift in the ideology of the Democrat Party, politicians like Frankel are becoming increasingly tepid in their approach to Israel, and all too silent in criticism of the anti-Jewish rhetoric within her party. Laura Loomer will be far more affirmative.
Despite being a political newcomer and outside candidate, Loomer has attracted influential groups such as JEXIT and United West to her cause.
She has also raised more campaign donations than all her rivals combined, including Frankel. Since launching her bid for Congress one year ago, Laura |Loomer has raised over one million dollars.
Should she win her primary on August 18, she will be a formidable rival for Frankel. Loomer will have the wind at her back with an increasing number of traditional Democrat voters feeling as if their party has left them. She will almost certainly have the personal backing of the President and his family as Trump’s Florida resort home, Mar-a-Largo, is located in Loomer’s district. She will also attract the support of Ron De Santas, perhaps the most popular state governor in America.
Israel will be watching Loomer’s battle with interest. We need more affirmative pro-Israel representatives in Congress as Israel and America face many challenges after the 2020 elections, because a Biden presidency is not to be trusted.  
Laura Loomer is certainly a young politician who will shake things up in Congress for the voters of Palm Beach County.

Plot and Deflect. Democrats Adopt Cloward-Piven and Alinsky to Regain Power.

One thing that the Democrat Party learned from Barrack Obama are the strategies of the Marxist pair, Cloward-Piven, on how to galvanize community action groups to gain power, and the application of Saul Alinksy’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ against political opponents for the same purpose. In this case the target has been Donald Trump.
The ultimate aim is to gain power, keep it, and change the country, not by giving the people what they want, but by making them dependent on an overpowering government.
Alinsky’s writings are the lodestar for radicals in building militant community organizations in order to gain power. Although not a Communist, his rules are a step ladder to hardened Socialism. 
Was it accidental or deliberate that Alinksy invoked Lucifer and the resultant hell as an inspiration? 
"The very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did so effectively that he at least won his open kingdom - Lucifer."
That "kingdom" was hell. Isn't it always when rampant Socialists, Marxists and anarchists get their way?
Hillary Clinton, as a student, was an ardent fan of Alinsky. They exchanged letters.
Perhaps more important to Democrat radicals is the influence of the Marxist activists, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. The four aims of the Coward-Piven strategy are;
Overload and Break the Welfare System.
Have Chaos Ensue.
Take Control in the Chaos.
Implement Socialism and Communism through Government Force.
Their end game was to totally transmute America into a centralized welfare state. This is being done as I write this by wily operators trained in the Marxism of the doctrine to exploit conditions of overwhelming distress and division through social upheaval and violence, and use that violence to wield influence over local and state leadership, and by leading the people via mass street protests to overturn the system and topple government.
Part of their plan is the suspension of civil liberties, an issue that should scare liberal Democrats, but apparently doesn’t.
Cloward-Piven pinned their ambitions back in the 60s in promoting disruptions within the Democrat Party.
They ruled that mass unrest brings more people onto welfare which was a vital component of their political ideology. To make more people dependent on government.
A political mechanism designed to end poverty via social unrest in the end makes everyone poor.
In America, the Democrats distract attention away from what they themselves are plotting by deflecting their own game onto Donald Trump. It’s a psychological trick. Don’t look at me, look at him.
Example 1. Russian Collusion. They pinned this on Trump after Obama had spent eight years doing just that, colluding with the Russians.
Proof 1. Uranium One in which Obama, with the active help of Hillary Clinton, sold 80% of America’s uranium stockpile to Putin, via dubious Russian companies and Kremlin proxies who donated large sums of money into the Clinton Foundation and gave Bill Clinton $500,000 speaking engagements in Moscow. Russian collusion.
Proof 2. Obama’s embarrassing open mike conversation with Russian President, Dmitri Medvedev, saying in 2012, “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility," to which Medvedev replied that he would "transmit this information to Vladimir."  Russian collusion.
Proof 3. Obama used Biden to schmooze up to Ukraine, one of the most corrupt European countries at that time. When Russia invaded Ukraine, Obama offered them army blankets and tents, but no military aid that would have helped them defend their country. Obama’s policy enabled Russia to occupy large tracts of Ukrainian territory. Russian collusion.
Proof 4. Obama drew a red line demanding Assad not to use chemical weapons against his own people. Despite that red line, Assad brazenly barrel-bombed his people, and Obama did nothing, enabling the Russians to walk into Syria and side with Assad openly.
Proof 5. Russian collusion was evident throughout Obama’s term as president, but this was the lie they leveled against Trump, even before he became president. And they did it by manufacturing a fake dossier based on Russian disinformation obtained with payments from the Democrat National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Campaign to a foreign agent, Christopher Steele, to come up with Russian dirt on Trump which he did with the disinformation given to him by his Kremlin contacts. Russian collusion.
Despite a three-year investigation, no evidence was found that linked Trump with the Russians. But real Russian collusion was evident with Obama personally, his policies and the actions of his officials. Plot and Deflect.
Example 2. Create a crisis and blame the president for the crisis.
Proof 1. Almost without exception, Democrat governors and mayors mishandled the Wuhan Virus pandemic, if “mishandling” is the right word. Mishandling is when you do something mistakenly or negligently.  But the prolonged lockdown, ruined the economy of too many states and cities. The authoritarian rule of many Democratic governors is plain to see. Many of their citizens will never recover from the economic damage imposed on them. 
Proof 2. Moving infected patients into old age homes would, even to a simple person, seems like a death warrant, but this is what too many Democrat governors did under the advice of their Democrat health officials, as they blamed the President for the massive crisis they had created. In short, ruin the economy and then blame Trump for ruining the economy. Plot and Deflect.
Proof 3. Governors and mayors imposed stringent lockdowns, often with the threat of imprisonment and heavy fines on regular, hardworking, law-abiding citizens. But these same “health aware” governors and mayors encouraged the masses to take to the streets in an orgy of protests and mayhem in the name of healthy civil rights. In short, create anarchy and then blame the President for the anarchy and uptick of virus cases they have promoted. Plot and Deflect.
Proof 4. Local Democrat leaders and officials did the one thing a democratic nation should never do when there is massive civil unrest – defund and dismantle law enforcement. This is a recipe for increased violence and anarchy. But this is precisely what the Democrats did.
Proof 5. They did it to draw a reaction from the President, a typical tactic of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. And when the President did what any President is obliged to do by sending in a Federal force to protect Federal property, people including Nancy Pelosi accused Trump of sending in “storm troopers,” acting like “Gestapo” and “Nazis.”  Light a spark, then blame your opponent for the consequences. Plot and Distract.
Alinksy wrote in 1972, “The Revolutionary force today are reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, ‘Burn the system down!’” 
The violence is justified, and victims invisible, depersonalized, merely symbols.
“The Radical may resort to the sword but when he does he is not filled with hatred against those individuals whom he attacks. He hates these individuals not as persons but as symbols representing ideas or interests which he believes to be inimical to the welfare of the people.” (Alinsky 1946)
Alinksy despised liberals.  
“Liberals utter bold words; they strut, grimace belligerently, and then issue a weasel-worded statement ‘which has tremendous implications, if read between the lines.’ They sit calmly, dispassionately, studying the issue; judging both sides; they sit and still sit.” (Alinsky 1971)
This is bad news for the liberal Alan Dershowitz’s who pray at the Democrat Party temple and are unable to tear themselves away, even when they discover the radical church is using a completely different prayer book.
And now they are plotting the greatest deception of all. To steal an election.
They are taking no chances, even to the point of introducing dubious methods they can exploit to their advantage, including a campaign to allow the use of absentee ballots and mail-in votes on a grand scale. They claim there is no criminality or fraud by using such unconventional methods.
But they are wrong,
In a sampling of election fraud cases across America, there have been 1,071 proven cases of voter fraud leading to 938 convictions, 43 civil penalties, 74 discovered diversion attempts, 8 judicial and 8 official findings, according to the Heritage Foundation.
They know they are lying, but they will do it anyway. It’s part of their plot to seize power. 
They are already projecting their guilt onto Trump, if they are prevented or caught out engaging in vote rigging, they will accuse him of wanting to steal the election, as they plot and organize to do precisely that.
Here again, we smell the Plot and Deflect tactic at work.
Headline from the Washington Post. July 20.  “Biden predicts Trump will try to ‘indirectly steal’ the election.”
Proof 1. The Open Democracy broadsheet of July 24 printed, “The outlook for a free and fair election (meaning one in which the Democrats can manipulate the outcome with massive manipulation of absentee ballots) in November is cloudy, not least because the president himself has predicted mass-scale voter fraud (which is what they are planning) and foreign interference.”
Proof 2. Democrat states face federal lawsuits and litigation from complaints lodged by Judicial Watch claiming, on a grand scale, that certain states are not maintaining proper voter rolls as required by federal claw arguing that this leaves the door open to “dirty elections.” The states in question include Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maryland, California, Virginia and Colorado.
Proof 3.  In a May 2020 Judicial Watch investigation it was discovered that there were 800,000 illegible voters listed in just three Pennsylvania counties. A left wing group submitted a motion to dismiss claiming these were not illegible but merely “inactive,” but this is precisely where the fraud potentially comes in by malevolent actors activating inactive voters.
Proof 4. In preparation for the riots that will surely follow a Trump victory, the same Open Democracy piece deflected the potential violence perpetrated by sore radical losers by deflecting their intentions onto the president;
“Given the tense situation in the country (caused by their own people), it would take only a spark, whether spontaneous or deliberate, to ignite a social conflagration in key cities before the November 3 election.”
Plot and Deflect, par excellence, given that the only “social conflagrations” we witness in America has been initiated by the radical left of the Democrat Party.
What they really are telling us is, despite their efforts to steal an election, if they lose, expect more looting, pillaging, arson and destruction after a Trump victory.
If you think that preparations for vote rigging is a far-fetched conspiracy theory, consider this.
Why is it, do you think, that Barrack Obama has been working for a hundred days in setting up a national network of community organizers to operate local groups of election activists Obama has set up a national campaign with 250 branches and a staff of 32,000 people using a budget, according to the IRS, of tens of millions of dollars, operating out of a HQ in Obama’s Washington, DC, office, headed by Valerie Jarrett, his one-time Iran negotiator. Obama's Attorney-General, Eric Holder, is involved. 
Why would a former president, whose legacy has been ruined by the incumbent, spend his time and money to go back to community organizing? As a hobby? Not likely.
Obama is working to swing the election result just as he operated his inner circle of intelligence agencies, FBI and Justice Department, to go after a political opponent. All this will become clear when the hammer comes down on the findings of the Barr-Durham probe into grave misconduct by leading officials of the Obama Administration.
Obama is central in the upcoming Plot and Distract operation to regain power, by using the Cloward-Piven/Saul Alinsky methods he knows and has practiced in the past. And he is not expending all this money and effort just as a favor to his VP.
Plot and Deflect. The Democrats are working to the playbook of Alinksy and the Marxist pair.
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.’
The target is President Trump as the personification of a Government they wish to overturn.
Plot and Deflect. Watch out! It’s coming to a polling station near you.
