    Saul Alinsky was a brilliant man. Evil, but brilliant. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, everyone on the Left from the President on down is playing by his rules in the political arena. Not all liberals have read his book or know his name, but his tactics have become universal. Sadly for conservatives, when two evenly matched forces go head-to-head outside of a fairy tale, the side that tries to play nice usually ends up with its head in a box. So, don't lie or become an evil person like Alinsky, but learn from what he wrote and give the Left a taste of its own medicine. Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people. …The third rule is: Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat. …the fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. …the fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. …the sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy. …the seventh rule is: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. …the eighth rule: Keep the pressure on. …the ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

    It sure looked like you were implying that government regulation was the answer to the crisis. Tariffs are taxes on foreign commerce, they are Constitutional and I prefer low tariffs as an ideal, I support defensive tariffs aimed at those that have been waging trade war against us in order to negotiate an end to their warfare. Demoncrat regulations have a history of making everything worse.

    I doubt anyone is working towards the extinction of the gray wolf, the liberals have been trying to spread them in order to hurt ranchers and make it dangerous to live outside of big cities. The reduction of major predators is a major element of civilization and other creatures and human hunters can fill their place in the ecosystem.

    Government regulations create moral hazard and the illusion of safety, all that should exist and be enforced is basic laws against fraud etc. In many cases government regulations made the crisis worse by requiring lenders to give loans to unqualified buyers. You are officially a Democrat now?

    A 15-year CIA veteran says he was systematically targeted for revenge by John Brennan and Robert Mueller after he exposed part of the CIA's waterboarding program, then later revealed the identities of two agency officers, according to the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross. In a 2007 ABC News interview, John Kiriakou, now 54, revealed details of a 2002 incident in which the CIA waterboarded Saudi national Abu Zubaydah after mistaking him for al Qaeda's #3 official. Kiriakou later outed two CIA agents in subsequent interviews. Kiriakou’s nightmare began years before his interview with the FBI, in December 2007, after he revealed in an on-camera interview with ABC News that the CIA had waterboarded Abu Zubaydah, a Saudi national who the CIA falsely believed was al Qaeda’s No. 3 official. Kiriakou, the chief of counterterrorist operations in Pakistan, had helped capture Abu Zubaydah in March 2002. He resigned from the CIA in 2004 and joined the private sector. -Daily Caller Kiriakou, who now hosts a radio show for Sputnik International and works as a whistleblower advocate, expressed remorse for sharing the names with reporters, and hav maintained that none of the outed CIA officers were threatened or harmed, and no confidential methods were xposed. An internal "crimes report" was submitted following Kiriakou's comments, which the George W. Bush Justice Deparment decided not to pursue. When President Obama took office, however, that changed. "What we found in discovery was a memo from John Brennan, then the number 2 official on Obama's National Security Council - to the Justice Department saying ‘charge him with espionage," according to Kiriakou. The Justice Department responded, saying that Kiriakou had no committed espionage - to which Brennan replied "Charge him with espionage anyway and make him defend himself." The memos in question were reportedly provided to Kiriakou's attorneys for his case and subsequently returned to the Justice Department. The Sting

    Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) kept quite during the 2018 midterm elections regarding any possible endorsements. Now, the Republican senator is congratulating his Democrat successor, saying she’ll “do great,” even after weeks of controversial statements by Kyrsten Sinema. Sinema received a lot of backlash after videos and an interview resurfaced showing the candidate bashing her own state. The newly-elected Democrat senator called Arizona the warning state for the rest of the U.S., “the meth lab of democracy,” as well as calling Arizonians “crazy,” and sharing her support for Americans to go to fight for the Taliban. However, despite the now-senator’s controversial remarks, Flake congratulated Sinema after the tight race against Republican candidate Martha McSally. “Congratulations to @kyrstensinema on a race well run, and won. It’s been a wonderful honor representing Arizona in the Senate. You’ll be great,” he wrote.

    Ocasio-Cortez had informed The New York Times, “I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.” Either Ocasio-Cortez spends money like wildfire or her claim isn’t true. As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.” Real estate website Zillow states that the median rent in Washington, D.C. is $2,700; Ocasio-Cortez will bring home $174,000 a year for serving in Congress. That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.” More at: https://www.dailywire.com/news/38313/ocasio-cortez-claimed-she-couldnt-afford-dc-hank-berrien

    Just one day after the office of first lady Melania Trump issued an extraordinary call for her dismissal, deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel is officially set to exit the White House, the Trump administration has announced. “Mira Ricardel will continue to support the president as she departs the White House to transition to a new role within the administration," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday. "The president is grateful for Ms. Ricardel’s continued service to the American people and her steadfast pursuit of his national security priorities.” More at: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mira-ricardel-to-leave-white-house-after-melania-trumps-office-called-for-her-dismissal

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not on the bench Tuesday for a session, after sustaining a fall last week and fracturing three ribs. The high court met for a non-argument session Tuesday morning, less than one week after the 85-year-old justice fell in her Supreme Court office. “Justice Ginsburg will not be on the Bench this morning for the non-argument session,” the Court said in a statement Tuesday. “She continues to improve and is working from home this morning.” The court did not hear arguments on Tuesday, but took the bench for other routine business. Ginsburg, the court’s oldest justice, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital last Thursday “for observation and treatment” following the fall. Ginsburg has dealt with a series of health concerns in recent years, but has yet to miss a single day of oral arguments in her tenure on the highest court in the land, according to The Washington Post. Ginsburg broke two ribs in 2012, and previously battled two bouts of cancer. She also had a stent implanted in her heart to open a blocked artery in 2014.

    https://mises.org/blog/mises-nationa...em-immigration 03/28/2017Joseph T. Salerno In the current discussion about immigration, Ludwig von Mises is often invoked by libertarians as a staunch proponent of free trade in the broad sense that pertains to the free movement of goods, capital, and labor. Mises has even been proclaimed by some libertarians as an advocate of open borders. However, Mises’s views on the free migration of labor across existing political borders were carefully nuanced and informed by political considerations based on his first-hand knowledge of the deep and abiding conflicts between nationalities in the polyglot states of Central and Eastern Europe leading up to World War One and during the subsequent interwar period. Thus Mises did not evaluate immigration in terms of purely economic optima such as maximizing the productivity of human labor, irrespective of the political context. Rather, he assessed the effects of immigration from the viewpoint of the classical liberal regime of private property. My purpose in this short essay is to set forth Mises’s views on immigration as he developed them as an integral part of the classical liberal program he elaborated. I shall not attempt to criticize or evaluate his views. Liberal Nationalism For Mises, liberalism first emerged and expressed itself in the nineteenth century as a political movement in the form of “peaceful nationalism.” Its two fundamental principles were freedom or, more concretely, “the right of self-determination of peoples” and national unity or the “nationality principle.” The two principles were indissolubly linked. The primary goal of the liberal nationalist movements (Italian, Polish, Greek, German, Serbian, etc.) was the liberation of their peoples from the despotic rule of kings and princes. Liberal revolution against despotism necessarily took on a nationalist character for two reasons. First, many of the royal despots were foreign, for example, the Austrian Hapsburgs and French Bourbons who ruled the Italians, and the Prussian king and Russian Czar who subjugated the Poles. Second, and more important, political realism dictated “the necessity of setting the alliance of the oppressed against the alliance of the oppressors in order to achieve freedom at all, but also the necessity of holding together in order to find in unity the strength to preserve freedom”. This alliance of the oppressed was founded on national unity based on a common language, culture, and modes of thinking and acting. Even though forged in wars of liberation, liberal nationalism was for Mises both peaceful and cosmopolitan. Not only did the separate national liberation movements view each other as brothers in their common struggle against royal despotism, but they embraced the principles of economic liberalism, “which proclaims the solidarity of interests among all peoples.” Mises stresses the compatibility of nationalism, cosmopolitanism, and peace: he nationality principle includes only the rejection of every overlordship; it demands self-determination, autonomy. Then, however, its content expands; not only freedom but also unity is the watchword. But the desire for national unity, too, is above all thoroughly peaceful. . . . ationalism does not clash with cosmopolitanism, for the unified nation does not want discord with neighboring peoples, but peace and friendship.1

    Jane Sanders, the wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders, was in trouble with the FBI for bankrupting a college and also securing a $10 million real estate deal in the process. Bernie blamed this investigation on President Trump, but this was done under Barack Obama. Jane allegedly defrauded the bank with false claims of assets to secure a loan. That is a crime. Socialist Bernie and his wife are both laughing tonight! They are laughing at us, the little people in America, who would be indicted tonight, on the things that Bernie’s wife did. Once again, we are shown that there is a two-tier system of justice in America. Federal prosecutors have ended an investigation into a land deal overseen by Jane Sanders, wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders, without bringing any charges, an aide said Tuesday. Investigators had been looking into a $10 million real estate deal that Jane Sanders led when she was president of the now-defunct Burlington College between 2004 and 2011. “Jane Sanders has been informed that the U.S. Attorney in Vermont has closed its investigation of the Burlington College land deal and has decided not to bring charges of any kind,” Jeff Weaver, a Sanders adviser, said in a statement. “Jane is grateful that the investigation has come to an end,” Weaver said. “As she has said from the beginning she has done nothing wrong and Jane is pleased that the matter has now come to a conclusion.”

    The newest member of the mainstream media jumped into the legal fight to help CNN reporter Jim Acosta restore his White House media privileges. FOX News will file legal papers to support CNN’s lawsuit against President Trump. We here are far from surprised. FOX vacated its conservative principals long ago and is now part of the MSM cabal. “FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court.” — Blake Statement from Fox News president Jay Wallace: “FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential.
