Demand Protest ads running seek operatives to “send a strong message” at presidential inauguration

– The Washington Times – Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Donald Trump may have a point about paid protesters: Job ads running in more than 20 cities offer $2,500 per month for agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events.

Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.”

“Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad.

“We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues. “We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.”

The job offers a monthly retainer of $2,500 plus “our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year,” as well as health, vision and dental insurance for full-time operatives.

Mr. Trump has complained about paid activists both before and after the 2016 presidential campaign, but if anti-Trump advocacy groups are juicing their crowds with hired help, nobody’s admitting it.

“There’s simply no credible evidence that the opposition to Trump is spurred by anything other than legitimate concern about what his presidency might entail,” said a Nov. 17 column in the Washington Post’s The Fix.

PolitiFact reported that a widely shared Nov. 11 article claiming an anti-Trump protester was paid $3,500 was fake news created by Paul Horner, who runs a number of phony news sites.

If the Demand Protest ads are ruses, however, someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to sell the scam. The classifieds are running in at least two dozen cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Houston, and the company operates a slick website that includes contact information.

A San Francisco phone number listed on the website was answered with a voice-mail message identifying the company by name. A request for comment left Monday evening was not immediately returned.

The website, which says that the company has provided 1,817 operatives for 48 campaigns, promises “deniability,” assuring clients that “we can ensure that all actions will appear genuine to media and public observers.”

“We are strategists mobilizing millennials across the globe with seeded audiences and desirable messages,” says the website. “With absolute discretion a top priority, our operatives create convincing scenes that become the building blocks of massive movements. When you need the appearance of outrage, we are able to deliver it at scale while keeping your reputation intact.”

More than 100 left-wing groups, led by organizations such as Occupy Inauguration and the DisruptJ20 coalition, are calling on Trump foes to participate in inauguration protests being organized in Washington, D.C., and all 50 states.

The demonstrations are aimed at disrupting Friday’s inaugural ceremony and parade, as well as balls and festivities pegged to the celebration.

BIKERS FOR TRUMP HEAD TO D.C. TO KEEP PEACE

American patriots prepared to challenge extremists if necessary

| Infowars.com – JANUARY 16, 2017

Patriots and veterans are riding their motorcycles en masse to Washington D.C., prepared to assist in keeping the peace at the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

In an interview with Fox and Friends on Monday morning, the group’s founder and chief organizer, Chris Cox, told show hosts that they plan to allow law enforcement to do their jobs to the fullest extent, but are also prepared to pitch in if necessary, explaining, “As patriots, we have to keep an eye on everybody, and we think Donald Trump would have us keep an eye on everybody.”

Cox began the discussion by clarifying for viewers what a “biker” is, debunking the prototypical Hollywood depiction by pointing out that many are veterans, family-centric Americans from blue and white collar backgrounds, and Christians, such as Pastor Franklin Graham, a motorcycle enthusiast who rides from North Carolina to Alaska every year.

He went on to assure that the group’s primary reason for convening in the nation’s capital is to celebrate the victory of Trump and and his supporters, and usher in a new American era, but that if things go sideways, they will be prepared to assist in holding the line – even if it means defending the safety of peaceful protestors.

Fox host, Brian Kilmeade, noted that ‘protest groups’ have announced they have over 1,000 buses headed to D.C., and asked Cox what the plan is in the event of mayhem.

“First and foremost, we’re going to give law enforcement every opportunity to do their job,” he answered. “What people don’t understand is that a lot of these anarchists who are coming to town – they don’t like us any more than they like the Democrats, or any more than they like these women that are going to be marching and protesting.”

“We may even find ourselves trying to help fortify an area where some of these women are protesting Donald Trump.”

In a recent interview, Cox told Stuart Varney, “The bikers are certainly used to being outnumbered, and we are prepared to form a wall of meat, but we’re confident that law enforcement has learned their lessons in Chicago and Arizona, and if it’s anything like it was in Cleveland, they’re going to have things under control.”

Bikers For Trump had a detectable presence at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last summer, but law and order was upheld adeptly due to expert coordination and execution by police and other security agencies, as well as a complete failure by AstroTurf radical factions to ignite their planned chaos.

Militant communists and anarchists have vowed to disrupt the ‘peaceful transfer of power,’ with a group calling itself #DisruptJ20 declaring on its website, “We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over.”

A similar group, spearheaded by domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, calls itself ‘Refuse Fascism’ and states, “Our anger must now become massive resistance—before Donald Trump is inaugurated and has the full reins of power in his hands. Should we fail to rise with determination and daring in our millions now to stop this, the consequences for humanity will be disastrous.”

HERE’S WHY OBAMA NEVER INTENDED TO CREATE JOBS

Obama’s farewell: a soap opera for liberals and minority pawns

Jon Rappoport | Infowars.com – JANUARY 13, 2017

Here are a few snippets from Obama’s goodbye speech to the American people:

“Going forward, we must uphold laws against discrimination…But laws alone won’t be enough. Hearts must change…For blacks and other minorities, it means tying our own struggles for justice to the challenges that a lot of people in this country face – the refugee, the immigrant, the rural poor, the transgender American, and also the middle-aged white man…For white Americans, it means acknowledging that the effects of slavery and Jim Crow didn’t suddenly vanish in the ‘60s; that when minority groups voice discontent, they’re not just engaging in reverse racism or practicing political correctness…”

The question is: do people want empty sentimental sop from Obama or do they want action?

Well, it’s too late for action, because Obama’s presidency is done. And it makes no difference whether, as a result of his final speech, people view him as a great and honorable man who did his best, or as a con artist, because again, he’s on his way out the door.

Needless to say, his supporters were deeply moved by his words. They want to be moved. They don’t want to look at uncomfortable facts.

For example, let’s go to CNN, which is going to offer the best possible interpretation of economic indicators for black people in America:

“Blacks have seen their median income stagnate, along with the rest of the population…Median income [for blacks] stood at $35,398 in 2014, just a touch below where it was in 2009, when Obama took office. But it has climbed back from [a low of] $33,926 in 2011…The Great Recession sent many Americans into poverty, but blacks were hit particularly hard. The [poverty] rate for blacks hit 27.6% in 2011, nearly 2 percentage points higher than what it was when Obama was sworn in. It has since receded to 26.2%.”

If you call that a ringing endorsement of Obama’s performance as president, you’re in need of help.

Let me put it this way. For all Obama’s talk about racism and prejudice and justice, Americans of every description and color have been willing, for a long time, to work alongside each other and get along — IF THERE IS WORK TO BE HAD. DECENT PAYING WORK.

Obama is, in effect, trying to move back to another time, before that was the case.

When he was elected, in 2008, during the recession, his closest advisors thought he would come out swinging and do everything possible to create jobs. That was the number-one concern of Americans.

They were absolutely shocked when he opted for Obamacare out of the gate, as his first priority. And look what it has led to: a massive mess.

Gazing at his presidency head-on, without excuses, it’s clear that Obama chose to IGNORE jobs. He didn’t want to make a move in that arena.

Why?

The answer is stark and simple: the globalist agenda forbids the creation of new jobs, and Obama is a globalist. He was plucked out of nowhere by Ted Kennedy and mentored by Zbigniew Brzezinski, the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, along with David Rockefeller.

The Trilateral Commission is the single most important globalist force in the world. And of the 87 members of the Commission who live in the US, Obama appointed 11 of them to key posts in his administration.

This is no accident. This is intentional.

The idea that Obama would launch a no-holds-barred effective crusade against corporations leaving the US and throwing huge numbers of Americans (of all colors) out of work, is laughable. Look at the record, if you need verification. It never happened. It was never going to happen.

The man can talk forever about discrimination and prejudice and social justice, but those words fall flat, because he has never taken action to correct the true crime—which is there for all to see: Globalists are committed to torpedoing economies.

Obama can be a master of overly sentimental rhetoric—but this is merely a diversion.

And aside from the massive loss of jobs, if he has been talking about the inner cities of America, he should have focused on the enduring disasters that destroy life in those places and hold law-abiding citizens hostage: gangs, the murders they commit, their other crimes, drugs, and the absence of fathers in homes. That’s where he would have started. And he would have launched solutions.

But he didn’t.

In various ways, over and over, he simply said: “We’re all in this together.” That and $2 will get you a bus ticket in Chicago.

‘We’re all in this together’ doesn’t destroy pernicious globalist trade treaties or create jobs for people who are willing and ready to go to work and support their families.

‘We’re all in this together’ doesn’t eliminate gangs, killings, drugs, and highly dangerous neighborhoods.

‘We’re all in this together’ doesn’t start a national program of urban farms in inner cities, and suddenly give people the opportunity to grow their own fresh clean food, eat it, and make money by selling the excess.

‘We’re all in this together’ doesn’t help create a culture in which fathers deserting their families is a cardinal offense.

‘We’re all in this together’ does pour a pleasant syrup of “deep concern” on the heads of people who, above all, want to appear virtuous. These are the people who can be led to believe in an imitation of actual solutions and action.

They are content to think that a leader who espouses a lofty ideal has done enough.

Everyone else should put the ideal into action. If they don’t, it’s not the leader’s fault. He flew the banner. He recited poetics. He wanted a better world. He was operating at a higher level—and unfortunately, the bulk of humanity couldn’t grasp its profundity.

That notion and $2.75 will get you a ride on a New York subway.

‘Under Obama, family median income dropped and Democratic Party imploded’

capture

There was a great opportunity for the Democrats in 2008, but Obama’s policies have resulted in the Democratic Party now being on the verge of collapse, journalist Jack Rasmus told RT. Retired US Army GeneralPaul E. Vallely also provided his views.

*

On Tuesday Barack Obama gave his farewell presidential address in Chicago. He said America is in a “better, stronger place” than when he took office eight years ago. He also seemed hopeful about the future of the US.

RT: How do you think history will judge President Obama’s eight years in the White House?

Jack Rasmus: Well, I think his two greatest legacies, and there are a number of them are not that positive. One – on his watch here for the last eight years notwithstanding on the positive things he said about how we’re supposed to be better off than we were eight years ago, which is debatable – the biggest legacy is that certainly the wealthy have recovered very dramatically. Ninety-seven percent of all of the net income gains since 2008 have gone to the wealthiest one percent. Households, at the same time, the middle class, the median family income has continued to decline every year in real terms. I think that is going to be a legacy which is worse than under George W. Bush, and worse than under Clinton.

Any other legacy that people are not talking about is that on his watch, as the head of the Democratic Party, that party has almost imploded: roughly two-thirds of all the state legislatures and governorships are now in the hands of Republicans. Clearly, there was a great opportunity in 2008, and it was the Obama policies that have resulted in the Democratic Party being in such a bad shape. It may not even recover from here going forward. So those two things will be the primary legacies here.

capture

Also, he kind of governed from Washington. He sat behind the desk. Unlike other presidents you didn’t see him that much on television giving speeches to the nation, trying to rally people around his policies and going out touring the country as other presidents have done to try to rally support.

He stayed in Washington behind the desk there and played it very cautious on a whole number of fronts. We see the result of that. The country is not better off, regardless of what he said. In a whole number of ways it’s worse off, it is more divided. His speech talked about solidarity because clearly, the country is very, very divided. Even his ratings are a little bit higher than they were two years ago. It was just two years ago that they were as bad as George W. Bush in 2008. So they couldn’t get much worse.

RT: Back in 2008, Barack Obama said he would “not waste a minute” in trying to resolve conflicts in the Middle East. Did he live up to that promise?

JR: Clearly, the Iran deal was something of a win, but the whole Middle East is on fire still, and that hasn’t been corrected. We’re still in a 16-year war in Afghanistan with the government their collapsing. We’re still fighting ISIS in Iraq. The foreign policy – we’re dangerously here arming Eastern Europe. The neocons and the US State Department ran amok on his watch in Ukraine and elsewhere, and he put a stake in the ground for a possible future confrontation with China. So foreign policy has not been the best of his records.

capture

‘Delusional state of mind’

When you look at the economics, you look at the Middle East, you look at all the failures that we’ve had from a foreign policy standpoint, his presidency will go down as a failure, says Paul E. Vallely, retired US Army General.

RT: How do you think history will judge President Obama’s eight years in the White House?

Paul E Vallely: … I think the legacy will be that he has had a failure as a president over eight years. Many things are not as he explains it – I guess sort of living in what we call a delusional state of mind, not looking at the reality of the world. When you look at the economics, you look at the Middle East, you look at all the failures that we’ve had from a foreign policy standpoint, his presidency will go down as a failure in my opinion.

RT: In his speech, Obama said: “No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland these past eight years.” Do you think he has succeeded in reducing the terror threat?

*

PV: No, it is actually increased not only in the US and coming across to our borders and radicalizing a lot of – what we might call immigrants who have come into this country – plus others who have become a terror threat unto its own in our cities and in our neighborhoods. When you look at what’s happened in Europe, and throughout even the Middle East and Turkey, we’ve had an increase in radical Islamic terrorism. So it is not true that we’re better off than we were before. We’re actually under a bigger threat than ever.

RT: Do you think that is because of US foreign policy? Yesterday the director of the CIA said that the Obama administration made a mistake when it hoped to impose Western values and Western-style democracy in the Middle East during the Arab Spring. Do you think there is a link between foreign policy and the issues that you’ve just raised?

PV: Sure there is. When we look back, Iraq was never a real threat to the US. They were economically really in bad shape. So when Bush went into Iraq and Afghanistan, they attempted to do nation building, basically trying to bring some kind of democracy to those countries and cultures, which was really counter to Islam and Sharia law, and it would never have worked.

It was very naïve for our leaders to think we could go into the Middle East and make them into democracies. As we well know, democracy has to grow from within, not from without. This has been a very big issue in the US. Our foreign policy has not been well-thought out with vision and strategy that we need to have in order to help countries, not to get in and cause chaos and disturbance.

There has not been a smooth transition [of power] as he had with President [George W.] Bush. There’s been constant fake news put in the media and spread by broadcasting networks like CNN… this has created a lot of disturbances. But listen. President-elect Trump and his new cabinet, staff and transition team, they’re above it all. And they’re not stooping down to believe that any of this is going to have any effect on our new president in 10 days. It’s going to be a whole new different American that we’re going to see here.

FAKE NEWS: CBS REPORT IMPLIES TRUMP TORTURE VICTIM WAS BLACK, ASSAILANTS WHITE

:

‘This is the sort of lying that takes skill and practice’

| Infowars.com – JANUARY 9, 2017

A news report from CBS Radio implied the attackers who kidnapped and beat a disabled man last week were white Trump supporters.

The report aired Thursday egregiously skewed and omitted details regarding the high-profile assault, making it seem as though the assailants were white and the victim a helpless black man.

Listen to the clip for yourself below:

Here’s a transcript of the audio:

The viral video of a beating and knife attack in Chicago suggests the assault had racial overtones. CBS’s Dean Reynolds tells us the victim is described as a mentally-challenged teenager.

In the video he is choked and repeatedly called the n-word. His clothes are slashed and he is terrorized with a knife. His alleged captors repeatedly reference Donald Trump. Police are holding four people in connection with the attack.

The reporting was in reference to an attack that took place last week broadcast on Facebook Live, in which four black Chicagoans kidnapped a white disabled man, beat him, scalped him, forced him to drink from the toilet and made him say, “Fuck Trump,” and, “Fuck white people.”

The CBS clip, which has been deleted, was caught by Mediaite who claimed the report was “technically correct, but widely misleading.”

“By noting the attackers used the n-word during a racially-motivated attack while ‘referencing’ Donald Trump, the clear implication is that the victim was black and his attackers were racist Trump fans,” Mediaite reported.

Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker writes, “This may be the single most despicable act of media bias I have ever encountered.”

“Now consider for a moment how difficult it must have been for CBS News employees to make themselves bulletproof (in their minds, at least) by being factual, yet create a counterfactual message in the minds of its listeners,” writes Lifson. “This is the sort of lying that takes skill and practice.”

As Obama leaves office, goal on homeless veterans goes unmet…

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-4-12-39-pm

BY Jennifer Mcdermott

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Pledges by President Barack Obama and a national nonprofit organization to end homelessness among veterans did not meet their goal. But advocates see improvement, and the head of the Department of Veterans Affairs said Thursday that “we should be there” within a couple of years.

Homelessness among veterans has been effectively ended in Virginia, Connecticut and Delaware and in about 35 communities, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. But many veterans still sleep on the streets elsewhere.

Still, as Obama’s term ends, advocates call the national push a success because many veterans did get homes, and the ambitious goal created urgency. About two dozen nonprofits, government officials and homeless veterans in 17 states and Washington spoke with The Associated Press about the effectiveness of the effort and the challenges they faced.

“It has been the best kind of failure I’ve experienced,” said Chris Ko, director of homeless initiatives for the United Way of Greater Los Angeles. “It’s black and white. Did we reach it? No. Did we succeed in the broader effort? Will we end veteran homelessness because of this national push? Yeah.”

The Obama administration set a goal in 2010 of ending homelessness among veterans in 2015, and first lady Michelle Obama challenged mayors nationwide to do so in 2014. Though the deadline passed without the goal being met, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness says it won’t rest until every community has reached the goal.

The nonprofit Community Solutions also ran a campaign to end veteran homelessness by the end of 2015 and chronic homelessness one year later, called “Zero: 2016.” That work continues under a new name, “Built for Zero.”

VA Secretary Robert McDonald called on his agency and its partners Thursday to house as many veterans as possible in 30 days, saying that homelessness typically increases after the holidays and that winter is a tough time.

Obama’s “audacious” goal galvanized people, McDonald told the AP in an interview. As outreach and data collection improved, he said, officials realized estimates were low.

“I think we’re going to make a big dent this year, and I would say within a couple of years, we should be there,” McDonald said.

The number of homeless veterans nationwide is down 47 percent, or about 35,000 people, since 2010, but there are still roughly 40,000 more, HUD said in August.

To get homeless veterans into permanent homes, the Obama administration used a program that was created in 2008 and combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services from the VA.

Nearly 90,000 so-called HUD-VASH vouchers have been awarded, with $635 million appropriated for vouchers from 2008 to 2016. Many places were able to house most of their homeless veterans, but vouchers became harder to use as the housing market tightened.

Some areas harbor enough resources to solve the problem, but they’re spread across multiple agencies, making coordination difficult, Community Solutions said. Officials in communities that have effectively ended veteran homelessness, including Bergen County, New Jersey, and San Antonio, say the key was better coordination among government agencies and nonprofits.

There has also been a national shift in how people who are the hardest to house, including addicts and the mentally ill, are helped. They used to have to get medical treatment, get sober or take other steps to qualify for housing. That wasn’t working, HUD says, so now they get housing first, then are pointed toward help to confront root causes of their homelessness.

New Mexico reduced its number of homeless veterans from roughly 1,000 in 2015 to about 115.

“The most important thing we’ve learned in the last couple of years is we can make veteran homelessness almost completely go away,” said Hank Hughes at the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness.

Hughes and others worry momentum will stall if President-elect Donald Trump cuts funding for social programs. Trump’s team didn’t respond to a request for comment for this article. He has said he wants to rein in government spending and reform the VA but didn’t say much about homelessness during the campaign.

Navy veteran Stephen Matthews, 55, lost his job as a parts clerk last year because of an injury and couldn’t pay his rent in Warwick, Rhode Island. He and his wife lived in their car before his stepdaughter let them move in temporarily.

Matthews received a voucher for about two-thirds of his rent, but he struggled to find an apartment where he could afford the balance. He finally got one in West Warwick in late December after six months of searching.

“It’s too hard for the working class and less advantaged people to find safe and affordable housing,” he said.

Los Angeles voters approved a bond in November to raise $1.2 billion for up to 10,000 permanent units, and a refurbished building is opening in February in Jacksonville , Florida, as apartments for homeless veterans, but some plans to build more elsewhere have stalled because of local opposition.

In Chicago, nearly 3,000 homeless veterans have been housed since January 2015, leaving slightly less than 650 awaiting housing, according to the nonprofit All Chicago.

“Would it have been great if everyone met their goal? Of course it would’ve,” said Traci Strickland, who supervises homeless programs at a community mental health center in West Virginia. “It was lofty, and to make the amount of headway that has been made in Charleston, West Virginia, and in cities across the country, that’s huge. We didn’t meet the goal for everybody, but we met the goal for a lot of people.”
