Is Minnesota lost? That has to be the question many are asking this morning

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 7, 2018

I woke up this morning with my head spinning about the results nationwide, and couldn’t at first figure out where to dive in to tell you what I think about the midterm election results.

Over time, I’ll have more to say about what it all means, but I do know this—there will be no legislative reform of the US Refugee Admissions Program in the next two years.

Now that the House is controlled by the Dems, that means that each committee will revert to Democrat control.  And, they will never open for review the Refugee Act of 1980.

Minnesota not-so-nice power duo: Keith Ellison with US Senator Amy Klobuchar (will she run for Prez in 2020?)

Any further reform of the refugee program will have to come from the White House and if I were a betting person, I would bet that they have done about all they will do before 2020 which is to keep the numbers low.

Enough of that, I could be wrong.

As for my friends in Minnesota, don’t get angry at me for asking, but was outgoing governor Dayton right when he famously said in 2015, if you don’t like immigrants find another state?

See my post yesterday on Minnesota.

Here is just one of many stories this morning from Minnesota with Keith Ellison, the state’s new Attorney General saying—-if you mess with Minnesota we will fight back. Which sounds like a veiled threat to silence speech.

From The Minnesota Sun:

Keith Ellison Defeats Doug Wardlow Completing DFL Sweep of Statewide Offices

An emotional Keith Ellison took the stage at St. Paul’s Crowne Plaza hotel late Tuesday night to deliver his victory speech after defeating Republican Doug Wardlow in the race for Minnesota’s Attorney General Office.

The race has been a constant source of controversy on both sides of the aisle, though Republicans were hopeful that Ellison’s past affiliations as well as a domestic-abuse allegation made against him by an ex-girlfriend would keep him from winning the state’s top law-enforcement job.

Polls frequently showed a tight race with large numbers of undecided voters, but Ellison managed to squeak out a victory over Warldow, winning 49 percent of the vote compared to Wardlow’s 44 percent.

Ellison began his victory speech by praising the Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party as one based on the “values of love, respect, transparency, and accountability.”

[….]

“We don’t care who it is—if anybody is messing with somebody in Minnesota, your Minnesota attorney general is going to stand up for them and fight back,” he concluded. “Tonight is a good night. Every statewide elected official is a Democrat in Minnesota.”

Minnesotans, tell me what you think by commenting to this post.  Send me links to other news from the state in the wake of the midterm election.

Guest post: Forced conformity of thought breeds malice

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2018

Editors note:  The other day when I reminded readers about my rules on comments, I invited those of you who had more than a few words to say to send me a guest post for my consideration.  I have an entire category that has gone unused lately entitled ‘Comments worth noting/guest posts’ here.

Berman-and-Alisyn-Camerota-CNN-800x430

The purveyors of the ‘real truth’ every morning on CNN’s New Day.

As things happen, this piece from ‘bottomlesscoffeeoo7’ is a timely one. 

You know I watch CNN the first thing every morning so I know what the Left/Dems are being told about what to think by the brilliant ones at CNN.  Today the show was all about how the President lies all the time (according to fact checkers at the Washington Post).

LOL! When you have a few minutes, search ‘CNN Trump lies’ and see what you get!

 

The Constant Demand for Conformity is What Breeds Malice

This post was inspired by https://philosophyviaphotos.wordpress.com and their article, “Truth is Single or Many? you can find their article here. If you get the chance, check out their blog, some pretty interesting things. https://philosophyviaphotos.wordpress.com/2018/10/28/truth-is-single-or-many/

To demand that others follow, without their own individual consent is how malice is born and continues to breed. Plato said and I quote “Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder”. This simple phrase is how beauty is determined, by the individual. Not from law or social ideology. The constant push and pull from the time of Adam and Eve is how rape and murder became prevalent.

To demand that others give into your desires, whether through threats or subjecting them to isolation, is what is needed to form an underground coup d’état. Malice is born and breeds in the hatred that is the direct result of mass conformity. If you want an enemy, constantly tell them the “truth”. Demand that they conform and accept the results, regardless of their own thought, opinions or feelings on the matter.

“Truth” seems to be ever more present, yet it was this “truth” that enabled the ideology of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. If these are the lengths people are willing to go for their sudden epiphany of discovering the “truth”, then they must be ready for the backlash that is building just out of sight.

“Truth” be told, this is one of the many reasons President Donald Trump won. For too long, we were told to simply “shut up, sit down and listen”. We are not “scientists”, we are not “academics”, yet we live in the world of cause and effect. We live in the world of layoffs, tax brackets and rising medical costs. We live in the world of debt and ultimately we live in the world, where we are done as we are told, never the other way around.

We have been subjected to mass hysteria and the wagging fingers of the “truth tellers”. From halloween costumes, to revised history, approved speech and laws and regulations that do not and have never applied to the mega donors or the law makers.

Our medical history is used against us. The makers and enforcers of law (which includes insurance law), demand higher and higher premiums, all while disparaging the same industry that we now must pay, BY LAW!

“Climate Change”, “Immigration”, “Hate Speech”, “Diversity”, “Inclusion”, all of these subjects and many more, that we are forbidden from speaking our opinions on in public, breed malice. The mass hysteria over boycotts and who can do what is how President Trump will win in 2020.

Continue to wag your finger and look at me with disgust. Continue to demand that “mental health” is an epidemic, continue to shove me out of my seat, so you can be given a seat at the table that I had to earn.

The “truth” that you speak of is the very reason why I will no longer listen. The “truth” that you speak of, you have weaponized to win. You do not care of the cost. You could not be bothered with the millions you will impugn by demanding that law be catered to this “truth” that you parlay as if any refutation is an assault.

Let the individual choose for themselves. Allow the individual to be the master of their command. Present the evidence and simply step aside, there is no need to win. Time will tell if this “truth” is true, if you cannot be patient, why should we listen?

No one likes an automobile salesperson to hound them, why can’t others grasp this?

I must believe something for myself in my head and my heart before I will ever acknowledge it as “truth”.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

Read more from ‘bottomlesscoffee007’ here.

For years, I nagged readers to write their own blogs.  It is not hard and you will find it very satisfying to send your views out in to the world for others to consider or to gather and share facts as real investigative reporters did at one time in our history.

And, as I argued many times, the more of you who become reporters and commenters, the harder it will be for the Leftists to control speech in the tumultuous years ahead.

The President gives us permission to say we are “nationalists”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2018

I was planning to write about the Daily Mail’s tirade against US Representative Steve King, calling him a white nationalist, today anyway, but oh joy! Donald Trump (with obvious pride) said he is a “nationalist” at his Texas rally last night.

 

 

The migrant caravan is not about the poor and downtrodden!

As we watch (in horror), the mostly young male migrant caravan heading to the US border intent on confronting our President’s authority, more Americans are seeing clearly that the battle (the worldwide battle!) is really one of nationalism vs. globalism with the marching human beings as the pawns in a gigantic war for world power.

Rep. King is vilified in the British press for daring to say what we all know.

And, Donald Trump last night reconfirmed why they hate him so much—he gives us all permission to speak!

If you love America and western civilization, and happen to be white, you are the scum of the earth to globalists—white nationalists!

From the Daily Mail:

Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King reveals his white nationalist views in shocking interview with far-right Austrian website saying immigration is ‘slow-motion cultural suicide’

Iowa Republican Representative Steve King has revealed his white nationalist views in an interview with an Austrian far-right publication.

King, an eight-term congressman up for re-election next month, has been linked to Neo-Nazism and the far-right before, but he laid out his extremely conservative views like never before in an interview with far-right propaganda website Unzensuriert, which translates to ‘uncensored’ in English.

Steve-King-Iowa

Rep. Steve King: slow-motion cultural suicide!

 

He was interviewed when he stopped in Vienna in August and candidly called for stricter immigration policies, said Mollie Tibbett’s killer should have never been in the U.S., and claims Democrats are teaming up with radical Islamists to attack ‘Western civilization’.

He was interviewed by Caroline Sommerfeld, an intellectual in the European neo-fascist identititarian movement which is connected to the U.S.’s alt-right, to discuss how Muslim and Latino immigrants threaten the U.S. and Europe.

The interview was published in September and went unnoticed by American news outlets until the Huffington Post flagged it.

In the interview Sommerfeld asks: ‘In your opinion is Islam the problem or Western liberalism?’

King replies saying ‘it is like fighting a two front war. How is it, that the liberals, the leftists, on the one side, could build an alliance with the misogynistic hard core rightist Islamic people that have no tolerance for everything?’

This next bit really makes the heathen rage! Bringing up abortion and low fertility rates in the US, and in the west generally, is strictly verboten by the speech police.

He also slammed the U.S. low fertility rate saying ‘if we continue to abort our babies and import a replacement for them in the form of young violent men, we are supplanting our culture, our civilization.’

At multiple points in the interview he uses the phrase ‘Western Civilization’ which he seems to define as white America.

The two touched upon the theory of the Great Replacement – which is the idea that mass migration such as from Muslim-majority countries, could lead to the extinction of white European culture and identity.

King called it ‘slow-motion cultural suicide’.

The Great Replacement is a term used by anti-Muslim European networks who believe migrants and refugees are leading to the Islamification of Europe.

More here.

King, like Trump, is so vilified by the Daily Mail because he gives voice to sensible Europeans’ greatest fears and what they know in their hearts is true.

Readers, remember our enemies have no power when you take away their power to use words to silence you.

Racist, homophobe, islamophobe, white nationalist, whatever, are just words. Laugh and walk away.

But, of course, continue speaking!

Chobani lawyers critical of recent post

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 3, 2018

Update October 9, 2018:  My response to the law firm is here.

This morning I received a letter via Federal Express from a large Washington DC law firm (Akin Gump) representing Chobani Yogurt and Hamdi Ulukaya’s Tent Foundation.

They challenge my assertion that the company and the organization are promoting bringing more refugees to the US.

On advice of counsel, I am temporarily removing the post dated October 1, 2018 titled:  “Chobani yogurt tycoon, Hamdi Ulukaya, gets Global Citizen award from DC think tank…..” which they find offensive.

More later….

Hyatt Hotels follows the lead of the Southern Poverty Law Center to silence speech they don’t like

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 2, 2018

Hyatt Hotels has announced they will no longer rent conference space to what they call “hate groups.”

Hyatt-Hotel-logo

They obviously were pressured by a Muslim advocacy group , surely backed by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” list.

The expanding efforts to silence speech, such as on social media today and where venues (like Hyatt Hotels) refuse to allow people to gather to discuss pressing issues of the day, is the sort of thing the founding fathers feared.

They knew that venting ones views verbally/openly and non-violently in public and often through gatherings of like minded people was an important pressure release valve of sorts.

When people are driven to meet secretly and underground is when real rebellion is fomented.

Originally from the LA Times, but here at the Guam Daily:

Hyatt won’t rent to hate groups

Hyatt Hotels Corp., one of the nation’s largest hotel companies, announced it will no longer host hate groups at its nearly 800 properties, a move that was praised by a Muslim advocacy group.

Mark Hoplamazian, CEO of the hotel company, released a memo to employees Thursday, explaining the new anti-hate policy for Hyatt Hotels Corp.

Scott of Muslim advocates

Scott Simpson, public advocacy director of Muslim Advocates. Learn more about him here:     https://www.muslimadvocates.org/about/staff-2/

The hotel company declined to release the memo Friday but instead issued a statement saying: “Hyatt will no longer allow hate groups, those who primarily seek to disparage or demean a specific group of people, to host meetings or events at our hotels.”

Muslim Advocates, an Oakland-based civil rights advocacy group that has been pressing hotel companies to take similar steps against hate groups, called the decision a victory.

“Hyatt’s announcement is a welcome one for consumers who want their hotels to be safe spaces to relax and be themselves free from hostility and discrimination,” said Scott Simpson, public advocacy director for Muslim Advocates.

The Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Virginia hosted a group in September called ACT for America, which describes itself as an organization dedicated to educating and training Americans to “help prevent criminal activity and terrorism.”

But Muslim Advocates accuses ACT for America of being a “white supremacist-aligned anti-Muslim hate group.” Muslim Advocates has pressed Hyatt and other hotel companies to refuse to rent to ACT for America.

[….]

It was not clear from Hyatt’s statement how the hotel company planned to determine which groups promote hate, but it added: “This is a complex and emotional issue, but what we’ve concluded is that we need to commit to a higher level of vetting such that groups using hate speech, primarily seeking to disparage or demean a particular group, are not welcome in our hotels.”

Hint from the story about who might be doing the vetting for Hyatt Hotels….

ACT for America could not be reached for comment but in a news release issued Friday in response to similar accusations by the Southern Poverty Law Center….

More here.

Yesterday when I wrote about Chobani Yogurt CEO, Turkish immigrant Hamdi Ulukaya, putting together many global corporations who support and advocate for moving the third world to the first world, I didn’t see Hyatt Hotels on his list yet, but I bet it will soon be there.

By the way, the so-called hospitality industry, like the meatpacking industry, is one of the leading advocates for more cheap LEGAL refugee labor.

Others working with Ulukaya (Chobani Yogurt) you should take note of are: airbnb, Hilton Hotels, Starbucks, Twitter, Facebook, UPS, and TripAdvisor to name a few.

I tell my friends not to buy Chobani Yogurt, and….

…it should be pretty easy to find other hotels that aren’t working to silence speech. What the heck there are lots of coffee shops, but getting off of Facebook and Twitter will be hard and that is something I am seriously considering.  What do you think?

LOL! The way things are going we might be reaching each other via snail mail soon! (My PO Box is in the lefthand side bar).

P.S. This post is filed in my ‘Stealth Jihad’ category.

Attorney General Sessions orders review of Justice Department’s ties to the Southern Poverty Law Center

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 12, 2018

The New York Post editorial yesterday is entitled:

The SPLC’s terrible year just got worse

 

It’s been a rough year for the Southern Poverty Law Center — deservedly so. And it just got more difficult, thanks to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The SPLC, formed in 1971 as an aggressive civil-rights nonprofit law firm, has become the left’s go-to arbiter of what constitutes a hate group. Its pronouncements are quoted without challenge by the news media, and it has an endowment of $300 million, enriched by major corporate donors.

Screenshot (616)

The Leftwing media loves to cite the SPLC.  Here is the SPLC’s hate expert-in-chief, Heidi Beirich, on MSNBC  https://www.splcenter.org/about/staff/heidi-beirich

Yet its overly broad definition of “hate” often goes far beyond truly vile outfits to include people and groups that simply don’t toe a politically correct line. That’s why the SPLC two months ago had to pay $3.4 million and publicly apologize to Maajid Nawaz, whom it had falsely labeled an “anti-Muslim extremist.” (He’s actually a practicing Muslim who opposes extremism.)

But that didn’t stop the Star-Ledger last week from devoting an editorial to denouncing New Jersey’s ICE spokesman, Emilio Dabul, for his “links” (as supplied by the SPLC) to “anti-Muslim fanatics.” This, even though the Star-Ledger admitted that Dabul’s own writings “showed no anti-Muslim bias.” It was all guilt by association — right from the SPLC playbook.

Now Sessions has ordered a review to ensure the Justice Department no longer partners with the SPLC and other groups that “unfairly defame Americans.”

[….]

…Sessions charged, it uses its hate-group designations “as a weapon” to “bully and intimidate” organizations of which it simply doesn’t approve.

[….]

As Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who’s also been smeared by the SPLC as an “anti-Muslim extremist,”*** has noted, the group these days is invested more in “profiting off the anxieties and white guilt of Northern liberals” than in actually upholding civil rights.

Sessions’ review is long overdue, and follows other government agencies that have backed away from the SPLC. It’s time for those who still merely parrot its smears to start taking a closer look.

More here.

If you are looking for something to do, you need to complain to your local paper or TV station any time they use the SPLC as a credible source to define “hate groups.”

 

***The SPLC was forced to remove its now infamous Anti-Muslim Extremist list that included yours truly, see here.

Targeting Refugee Resettlement Watch and anyone questioning refugee resettlement for their towns and cities was initiated by a Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society study in 2013 which explicitly asked that the SPLC investigate us.  Here is a quote from that study (my post is here).  Earlier in the report they mentioned RRW by name.

Conduct Research on Local Anti-Refugee Leaders: The national refugee agencies should partner with groups such as Center for New Community and Southern Poverty Law Center to learn more about individuals and groups leading local efforts to resist resettlement, to determine if they belong to organized anti-immigrant or anti-Muslim organizations or networks.

Remember that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, as one of nine federal resettlement contractors, is dependent on your tax dollars for more than half of the group’s income!

Trump to Europeans: You are losing your culture!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2018

I was telling a reporter just yesterday that perhaps one of Donald Trump’s greatest gifts to us is that, with his penchant for speaking his mind, he gives us permission to say what we believe in our hearts, but may fear saying.

So here he is in the UK speaking frankly to The Sun, as reported by The Hill:

 

Trump: Europe is ‘losing its culture’ because of immigration

President Trump is railing against what he described as the migration of “millions and millions of people” into Europe, declaring that the continent is “losing its culture” to refugees and asylum seekers from the Middle East and Africa.

In an interview with the British tabloid The Sun published Thursday, Trump said that it is a “shame” that European leaders had allowed so many migrants to enter their countries’ borders.

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Great Falls, Mont.

“Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame,” the U.S. president told the tabloid, which his owned by conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way,” he continued.

Trump’s publicized comments came shortly after he arrived in the U.K. for a long-awaited trip on the heels of a tense set of meetings at the annual NATO summit in Brussels, where he delivered a blistering criticism of European allies and demanded that member nations pay more for defense.

The president’s comments during his interview with The Sun, however, highlighted Trump’s deeply held skepticism of immigration and resurfaced a line of attack that he had used often on the campaign trail – that Europe was being overrun by non-Europeans and was quickly becoming a shell of what it once was.

“I think you are losing your culture,” he told the tabloid….

The Hill reporter goes on to say, but, but, but, the numbers coming in have slowed.

I have seen that talking point everywhere. So, even if the numbers of migrants have diminished somewhat in the last two years, the damage was done when hundreds of thousands of Africans and Middle Easterners previously got in and are still there roaming around Europe!

See my ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive (which I have been adding to for years) by clicking here.

Endnote: As regular readers know, I watch CNN for a bit every morning to learn what has their panties-in-a-wad each day, and boy were they freaking out about The Sun interview, but not one word about this part of the interview—-the immigration/cultural destruction comments!

SPLC apologizes and shells out $3.375 million to man they placed on their Anti-Muslim extremists list

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2018

SPLCThat would be the 2016 “Field Guide” written by Mark Potok that they created to try to silence voices they disapprove of (yours truly is on it!).

This time their shoddy research cost them big bucks and a black eye.

Important free speech case involving Twitter moves forward

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 17, 2018

I first told you about the case filed by Jared Taylor (American Renaissance) against Twitter here in February.

Now we learn that Taylor’s lawsuit can advance as a California judge refuses Twitter’s effort to dismiss the case.

Twitter-Jail-300

Editor: I use Twitter almost daily and was steadily moving upward in follower numbers until a few months ago.  It isn’t my imagination, I know that Twitter is doing something (maybe shadow-banning to some of my 14 thousand followers) to keep my numbers down. So they don’t have to ban you outright as they did Taylor, they simply make sure you can’t expand your reach.

Will Susanna and Tommy turn the tide to save Europe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 11, 2018

fake eyebrows

While the media is busy with the run-up to the show in Singapore, and prior to that the G7 in Canada that saw social media in a flutter over the failure of Justin’s fake eyebrow that came unglued in a presser attacking Trump (yes, apparently the prime minister of Canada augments his eyebrows with bushy black fake ones!), some monumental shift may have occurred in Europe in one week….

Is there still hope to stop the Invasion of Europe?

Here is what I see.
