STATS: Mainstream Media Devotes FIVE TIMES More Time To Confederate Flag Flap Than To ISIS Threat

What’s more important, The Dukes Of Hazzard or US Citizens joining ISIS?

BY STEVE WATSON

Analysis by the Media Research Center shows that the three big US news networks devoted at least twice as much air time during their main evening shows to outrage over the Confederate Flag than they did to the news that several American citizens have recently been recruited by the Islamic State terror group.

The stats for June show that ABC was the biggest offender, devoting FOUR TIMES more air time to some Americans taking offense to the Confederate flag, in the wake of the Charleston shooting.

In total, in the month of June, the evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC covered the ISIS threat for only 17 minutes, 35 seconds, while a whopping 37 minutes and 18 seconds was scheduled for the ‘racist’ flag issue.

The Media Research Center also notes that because the Confederate flag debate didn’t begin until June 19, yet ISIS recruitment has been ongoing for the whole month, the flag ‘debate’ actually received FIVE TIMES more coverage (186 seconds per day vs 35 seconds per day).

The flag issue was dragged on and on and hyped by the networks, as companies like Walmart, Amazon, Apple, EBay and Google all vowed to pull products with any links to Confederate flags, because they were deemed to be threatening and offensive.

Meanwhile, throughout June, there were at least six reported cases of American citizens joining ISIS, and several intelligence agency alerts and warnings regarding the growing influence of ISIS inside America.

It is believed that the FBI have made at least 30 arrests on US soil this year of ISIS linked or influenced individuals.

Despite the elevated threat, The Obama administration last week blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to assist Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq.

High level officials from Gulf and other states have charged that Obama will not listen to pleas to arm Kurds, which is ironic given that so called “moderate rebels” were openly armed in Libya and Syria, leading directly to the rise of ISIS and it’s stockpiles of weaponry.

But wait… what about how frightening and offensive THIS is:

EU Security Head: “Political Islam” is the Future of Europe

Sharia law for the west?

by Paul Joseph Watson | July 6, 2015

As the threat from ISIS extremists grows, the European Union’s head of foreign affairs and security policy Federica Mogherini has caused consternation by asserting that “political Islam” is a firm part of Europe’s future.

Responding to last month’s brutal Islamist terror attacks in Tunisia, Kuwait and France, Mogherini dismissed the idea of a clash of civilizations and shot back at critics of mass immigration.

“Islam belongs in Europe. It holds a place in Europe’s history, in our culture, in our food and – what matters most – in Europe’s present and future,” wrote Mogherini, before adding, “I am not afraid to say that political Islam should be part of the picture. Religion plays a role in politics – not always for good, not always for bad. Religion can be part of the process. What makes the difference is whether the process is democratic or not.”

In promoting “political Islam” as part of the future of Europe, Mogherini is violating the very notion that western democracy is supposed to be based on the fundamental principle of separation of church and state (or mosque and state in this case).

Since the zenith of “political Islam” is Sharia law, the legal system derived from the teachings of Islam, she is also promoting the imposition of a system that represents one of the most repressive forces on the planet, subjugating women and allowing for extra-judicial murder such as stoning and beheading, both of which are practiced in Saudi Arabia, a country which exemplifies “political Islam”.

“She was not referring to the Muslims who divide Europe into “us” and “them” by saying, “We will conquer your Rome,” writes Robert Spencer. “She was referring to those who say that such people should be resisted. For even though she says, “Da’esh is Islam’s worst enemy in today’s world,” she has no plan to distinguish its many, many thousands of adherents among Muslims in Europe from those who reject it. And so she and her ilk are heading Europe toward a future of chaos and bloodshed.”

Mogherini’s comments will do little to dispel concerns that world leaders are hesitant to fully acknowledge the threat posed by ISIS, and the fact the group’s campaign of terror is very much Islamic, for fear of appearing politically incorrect.

Indeed, the current debate about how to stop ISIS is not centered around combating the ideology (lifted straight from the Koran) that motivates ISIS’ thousands of fighters and its millions of supporters, but an obsession with not calling the group “Islamic”.

Last month, British Prime Minister David Cameron insisted that ISIS instead be referred to as “Da’esh” because “Islamic State” was offensive to Muslims.

US to pay salaries of Governor Saakashvili’s team in Odessa, Ukraine

The US government will pay the salaries to the staff of Georgia’s former President Mikhail Saakashvili, who is now serving as a new governor of Odessa Region, Ukraine, Saakashvili said, adding that California police will also train Odessa’s officers.

“Within the framework of Odessa’s anti-corruption pressure, the US government agreed to provide funds for the salaries of the new team of [Mikhail] Saakashvili,” Saakashvili wrote on his Facebook page after the meeting with Geoffrey Pyatt, the US Ambassador to Ukraine.

He added that American police officers from California “will train new Odessa police.”

Pyatt has repeatedly voiced his support for Saakashvili. Earlier in July he said that Washington “fully supports Mikheil Saakashvili and his team, and we will do everything so that they can succeed.”

US authorities have recently been sending other instructors to train local forces in Ukraine. In April, paratroopers of the US 173rd Airborne Brigade, based in Vicenza, Italy, arrived in the western Ukrainian city of Lvov to provide training for Ukrainian government troops. Pyatt then posted on Twitter several pictures of the US paratroopers marching through the airport in the city.

Saakashvili became governor of Odessa Region back in May. He was personally appointed by President Petro Poroshenko.

He was also given Ukrainian citizenship under Poroshenko’s personal decree, published on his website, as the Ukrainian constitution says that only a citizen can become an official at governor level.

Saakashvili left Georgia in autumn 2013, days before his presidential term expired. He has been living abroad ever since.

In spring 2014, Georgia’s new ruling coalition accused Saakashvili of embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from the state budget. Georgia’s prosecutors have started an investigation into the case. However, Saakashvili denies the charges against him, saying the funds went towards attracting foreign investors to the country.

Apart from embezzlement, Saakashvili has several other cases ongoing against him. He is accused of abuse of power during the crackdown on anti-government protests in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, on November 7, 2007. He was also allegedly involved in the attack on the opposition TV station Imedi, which was seized by Georgian special forces on the same day, and the appropriation of the founder’s assets.

In February 2015, Tbilisi issued an extradition request for Saakashvili, but Kiev authorities rejected it.

Unite or Die: States’ Rights Movement Gaining Ground

Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 11.08.24 PM

There are stirrings of a “new” old movement afoot.  IT’S ABOUT TIME.

The latest Rasmussen Poll shows that a growing number of Americans want their state governments to tell the Supreme Court to hit the road and stop rewriting the Constitution.  In other words, the “Don’t Tread On Me” culture is gaining steam.

“Only 20% [of likely voters] now consider the federal government a protector of individual liberty,” the Rasmussen Poll finds. “Sixty percent (60 %) see the government as a threat to individual liberty instead,” it adds.

In 2009, the Tea Party movement arose in response to a grossly over-bloated and tyrannical federal government which was clearly no longer accountable to the people who it purports to represent.

Diffuse and truly grassroots – in spite of what it’s detractors say – the tea party’s everyday working Americans who believe in a limited, constitutional government and fiscal sanity stood up to say ‘Enough!’ in every corner of the nation.  But despite election wins that placed Republicans in control of the House of Representatives in 2010, and the Senate in 2014, it is undeniable that the Republican establishment has instead aligned with the forces of statism.

More than ever, there now exists two Americas -one in which individual liberty is still revered, the other where statism and dependency are the norm.

We now have an executive branch which tramples the Constitution on a regular basis, a legislative branch beholden to corporations and maintaining their own power, and a Supreme Court comprised of elitist Ivy League graduates who are molded by an alarmingly leftist-run academia.

SCOTUS’ rulings on Obamacare and gay marriage, along with Republican passage of fast track of Obamatrade, all in the same week, forced conservatives to sit up a take note.  It is now readily apparent that Washington DC is now aligned against the notion of limited government and constrained federal power.

But our Founders did not leave us without recourse.  Those who represented the states in ratifying the Constitution were supremely suspicious of federal powers, so much so that it took much internal wrangling to finally get the document signed.  And it was the 10th Amendment that secured its passage.

The 10th amendment, ratified along with the other nine amendments of the Bill of Rights on December 15, 1791, reads as follows:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The concept of popular resistance to the unconstitutional encroachment of the federal government on the rights of individuals and states has been gaining momentum over the past several years.

Various options are being bandied about, such as an Article V Convention of the States to propose new amendments to the Constitution that would limit federal powers by requiring ratification by the states.

Conservative author Charles Murray has advocated for a type of civil disobedience to resist unlawful federal regulations through the use of well funded legal challenges to the most egregious of those regulations.

But our best option is to use the tool with which our Founders had the foresight to provide us – the power of the 10th amendment. For it to be effective, we need bold governors and state legislatures to follow through and ultimately work together to rein in the federal government.

Bolder, constitutionally based resistance at the state level, is a practical and viable remedy, one that already has broad popular support among conservatives.  And, importantly, it does not require secession from the union.

Ben Franklin warned that we have “a republic, ma’am, if we can keep it.” If states do not act to limit the role of the federal government to that very narrow set of specifically “enumerated powers” ascribed to it in the Constitution, WE will have lost the greatest experiment in governance the world has ever seen.

Do you want that hanging over your head?

Black youths mock bloodied white victim

PoliceLine

A video on Facebook of a bloody-faced white male – the purported target of an attack by a black mob in Fountain Square in Cincinnati – is making the media waves, and what’s even more shocking than the condition of the victim is the background laughter.

The man was beaten into unconsciousness after a hip-hop concert on the Fourth of July.

The video shows a crowd of mostly black people gathering around the white man as he lay unconscious on the sidewalk. People in the background scream and laugh at his bloody face.

WARNING: Video of the attack contains graphic content:

Two officers were injured during the attack, which included about 40 black people, the Gateway Pundit reported.

The blog, the Conservative Tree House, reported two black males were arrested: Jy Quynn Britten and Gary Sheffield.

The blog also described the attack on the white man this way: “A person was also assaulted near Government Square. A man was seen down on the sidewalk. Cincinnati Police say they’re still investigating what led up to the attack. That mas has talked to police and was released from the hospital. There are no charges being filed at this time. More information on this man will be provided when available.”

Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed a Lot,” called the black on white crime commonplace nowadays.

“Did you hear anyone from Cincinnati say they were surprised that large groups of black people were attacking white people? No. Because this is an every day fact of life in Cincinnati as it is in hundreds of other cities around the country: White people are under constant threat of racial violence. And of course over the weekend there were more episodes besides Cincinnati. They were normal too,” he said, in an email to WND.

Flaherty also said the press is presenting a biased view of race relations in America, making it seem as if blacks were always the targets of hate crimes.

“Even as the press is now trying to explain to us the new problem with race in America — i.e. white on black violence — more and more people see that for what it is, a hoax,” he said. “And more and more people are talking and writing and black on white violence. More and more people are rejecting the fairy tales from the major media that is still trying to ignore, deny and minimize these crimes. ”
