General Lee Avenue, Traitors and Loyalists

Robert E. Lee Was a Traitor

  • My gut reaction is to oppose the latest insanity of the Left to 1984 Memory-Hole all references to the South and our heritage.
  • But on the other hand, the fact is Southern Democrats were traitors.   No more, no less.  One of my family members was shot at Gettysburg by these Southern Democrat Traitors.
  • So while I will oppose these Leftist loons on general principal, I cannot get worked up about defending those who violated their oaths to the Constitution and committed treason.

(Daily Caller)  -  New York City Democrats plan to host a protest Tuesday in Brooklyn outside of Fort Hamilton to pressure the U.S. Army to rename two streets named after Confederate generals.

According to The Brooklyn Eagle, the protest in John Paul Jones Park, led by New York Democratic Rep. Yvette Clark and joined by fellow New York Democratic Reps. Nydia Velázquez, and Hakeem Jeffries, is scheduled to happen outside the main gate of Fort Hamilton where demonstrators will demand the Army change the names of the streets inside the fort: General Lee Avenue and Stonewall Jackson Drive.

During the 1840s, 20 years before the Civil War, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were posted at Fort Hamilton.

Clarke has previously demanded the renaming of the streets located in her Brooklyn district but the Army rejected her request.

He Remained Loyal to the Union
Born in Virginia, General Winfield Scott remained loyal to his oath and to the Union. At the start of the Civil War, Scott took steps to defend Washington, DC and ensure the successful inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. Though too old and infirm to take the field, Scott served as Lincoln's principal military adviser at the start of the war.

Ban Killer Robots says Elon Musk

The Terminators are Coming

  • There is nothing you can say that will stop the idiots in the Military-Industrial Complex from not building the machines that will destroy the human race.

(The Guardian)  -  Some of the world’s leading robotics and artificial intelligence pioneers are calling on the United Nations to ban the development and use of killer robots.
Tesla’s Elon Musk and Alphabet’s Mustafa Suleyman are leading a group of 116 specialists from across 26 countries who are calling for the ban on autonomous weapons.
The UN recently voted to begin formal discussions on such weapons which include drones, tanks and automated machine guns. Ahead of this, the group of founders of AI and robotics companies have sent an open letter to the UN calling for it to prevent the arms race that is currently under way for killer robots. 

In their letter, the founders warn the review conference of the convention on conventional weapons that this arms race threatens to usher in the “third revolution in warfare” after gunpowder and nuclear arms.
The founders wrote: “Once developed, lethal autonomous weapons will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend. These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways.
“We do not have long to act. Once this Pandora’s box is opened, it will be hard to close.”
Experts have previously warned that AI technology has reached a point where the deployment of autonomous weapons is feasible within years, rather than decades. While AI can be used to make the battlefield a safer place for military personnel, experts fear that offensive weapons that operate on their own would lower the threshold of going to battle and result in greater loss of human life.
The letter, launching at the opening of the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) in Melbourne on Monday, has the backing of high-profile figures in the robotics field and strongly stresses the need for urgent action, after the UN was forced to delay a meeting that was due to start Monday to review the issue.

IRS re-hires corrupt agents

The Swamp is Winning
No one gives a flying crap about the American people

(World Net Daily)  -  More than 200 IRS personnel who were fired for unethical and even criminal actions in connection with the targeting of conservatives are now back on the job, according to an inspector general’s report.
According to the Office of Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, 213 people were rehired by the IRS despite a checkered history with the agency.
Those allowed back in between January 2015 and March 2016 include four people who were fired or resigned for failure to properly file their own income taxes. Four had been axed for improperly accessing taxpayer information, 86 others left while being probed for questionable leave, disrupting the workplace or failing to follow instructions, and 27 failed to disclose a conviction or being fired on their applications.

The inspector general’s report shows the audit was requested by an unnamed U.S. senator who was concerned about lax hiring practices at the IRS. The report concludes there was reason to be concerned.
“The IRS has not effectively updated or implemented hiring policies to fully consider past IRS conduct and performance issues prior to making a tentative decision to hire former employees, including those who were terminated or separated during an investigation of a substantiated conduct or performance issue,” said the report.
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is a fierce critic of the IRS. He told WND and Radio America it’s pretty easy to distill this story.
“You could simplify all that and say they rehired 200-some people who were cheating, lying, and snooping on the American taxpayer. That’s what they were doing and, ‘Oh, we’re going to rehire them now and let them work in the Internal Revenue Service,'” Jordan said.
“You can’t make this stuff up, can you? Just when you think you’ve heard it all about the IRS, they go and rehire people who have had this kind of background,” he said. “It is truly unbelievable.”

One Navy Disaster After Another

"Hey Moe,
we were admitted to Annapolis"

  • My Rule #1  -  Always honor the soldier, but always question the sanity of the officers and politicians.

(Fox News)  -  The guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, the 7th Fleet announced in a tweet.

Initial reports indicate the warship sustained damage to its port side aft.

The warship is named after John S. McCain, Sr., and John S. McCain, Jr., both Admirals in the U.S. Navy, and the grandfather and father, respectively, of the Arizona senator.

This crash came days after the top three leaders aboard the USS Fitzgerald were relieved of command. That warship was damaged badly in a collision off the coast of Japan that killed seven sailors in June. One of its compartments flooded in about 90 seconds.

The USS John S. McCain sailed by contested man-made islands in the South China Sea earlier this month, drawing China's "strong dissatisfaction."

Aside from the USS McCain and USS Fitgerald incidents, the Navy crusier USS Antietam ran aground dumping over 1,000 gallons of oil in Tokyo Bay in Februray.

Katie Couric Sprayed By Urine

Pissing on the Left Wing Press

(Daily Mail)  -  Katie Couric has described how two of her producers were hit by a ‘urine bomb’ while she was covering the protests in Charlottesville last week.
The broadcast journalist, 60, was filming the violent Virginia rally as part of a six-hour documentary series she is working on for National Geographic.
Couric wrote an op-ed that was published Friday by the outlet as a way for her to ‘reflect on her experiences’.
In the op-ed titled ‘Being in Charlottesville Broke My Heart. It Also Filled Me With Hope’, Couric said two of her producers were splashed with a mixture of mud and urine.
‘Observing the rising battle of protest chants, two of my producers were standing on an elevated edge of the park when suddenly they were doused with a concoction of human urine and mud,’ Couric wrote.
‘It was thrown into the air over the crowd from what they think was a water bottle. They’re still unsure who threw it and who exactly was targeted.’

Anti-Immigration Party On Track to Enter Germany’s Federal Parliament

"Conservatives" for Open Borders.  So-called "Conservatives" in the U.S. and Europe fall all over themselves to keep the borders wide, wide open.

Nationalism Surges
Anti-Islam AfD on track to become 
the #3 party in parliament

(CNSNews.com) – If polling ahead of Germany’s September 24 election proves accurate, the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party could become the first populist nationalist party – which counts a number of right-wing extremists among its members – to enter the country’ parliament since the end of World War II.

The AfD is predicted to win 10 percent of the vote, according to a new Insa poll, well above the five percent threshold needed to enter parliament and establishing it as Germany’s third largest party.
The poll released Tuesday has Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) in the lead with 37 percent, followed by the Social Democrats (SPD) with 25 percent.
AFD has won 166 seats in the state
legislatures of Germany.

Behind the AfD in third place, the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) are set to win nine percent of the vote, Die Linke (The Left Party) nine percent, and the Greens seven percent.
Not all polls predict the AfD scoring so strongly, however. For example an Emnid poll published on Saturday instead placed the party at eight percent, level with the FDP and behind Die Linke, at 10 percent.

Regardless, all poll predictions give the AfD enough support for enter the federal Bundestag for the first time. It already has a foothold at the regional level, represented in 13 out of 16 states.
The Forschungsgruppe Wahlen poll puts the AfD, FDP and Die Linke all at eight percent, indicating the battle for third place could be tight.
d FeedbacRegardless, all poll predictions give the AfD enough support for enter the federal Bundestag for the first time. It already has a foothold at the regional level, represented in 13 out of 16 states.

Its policy positions include declaring Islam incompatible with German culture, a plan to strip immigrants convicted of serious crimes of their German passports, a call to close E.U.'s borders and set up holding camps abroad to prevent migrants from traveling to Germany.

If the AfD does become the third largest party in parliament, its impact on the German political landscape is uncertain.

Josef Janning, senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, says the AfD’s arrival in parliament will likely prompt the CDU to shift its stance further to the right in a bid to suppress the newcomer’s influence.

"Europe is Lost": Barcelona Chief Rabbi Tells Spain’s Jews to Head for Israel

(Breitbart Jerusalem)  -  Spain is Europe’s hub for Islamist terror and the time has come for Jews to head for Israel and safety, Barcelona’s chief rabbi has warned.

Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen delivered the grim, personal message on Friday in the aftermath of the terror attack in Barcelona that claimed 14 lives and left over 100 more injured.

In an interview with JTA news agency, he said: “I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel.

“This place is lost. Don’t repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better (get out) early than late. Europe is lost.”

Part of the problem exposed by the attacks, Bar-Hen said, is a large Muslim community in Europe with “radical fringes.” Once these people are “living among you,” he said of terrorists and their enablers, “it’s very difficult to get rid of them. They only get stronger.”

This is not the first call for Jews to reconsider their future in Europe.

As Breitbart News reported, the flight of Jews from mainland Europe has been rising in the wake of a sharp rise in anti-Semitism that should be a warning to the rest of the population, a prominent Jewish organisation warned last year.

Evidence shows that Jewish migration to Israel has doubled in the last two years, with many more opting to flee to America and even Britain in the wake of a rise in anti-Semitic attacks.

Rush Limbaugh: "America is near Civil War"

The Really Sad Part

  • The true horror is watching the "Conservative" GOP lock arms with the Terrorist Left to destroy Trump and our culture. 
  • When they are not on TV ripping Trump, the GOP spends all their time holding committee meetings on Russia.  Defend America? It never enters the minds of these corrupt Oligarch GOP buffoons. 

(Rush Limbaugh.com)  -  America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. 

Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.

I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.

Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us, in order to defend America, you have to begin knowing our history. If you’re gonna defend the United States of America, you have to know our history. You have to know the purpose of the United States of America. You have to know unequivocally and proudly the United States’ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed.

None of this that is happening on the left is random. None of the riots, none of the protests. They are not the result of the left being offended by individual acts. Antifa didn’t show up in Charlottesville because they found out something was going to happen that offended them. They showed up in Charlottesville to create mayhem and cause hell. They showed up in Ferguson, Missouri, to do the same thing.

They showed up in Baltimore to do the same thing — and wherever they show up today and tomorrow and next week, it’s by design, on purpose, has an objective and an agenda. And that agenda is to erase American history. That agenda is to distort, erase, and impugn our history. It is crucial if they are to succeed. Because, you see, if enough Americans can be persuaded that America, as founded, is unjust — if enough Americans can be persuaded that America as founded is inherently racist and immoral and illegitimate — then it will be all that much easier to erase America as founded.

The two go hand in hand, which is the objective of all of these groups on the left. Whatever they’re called and wherever they go and however they organize and whatever their day-to-day purpose, their objective is to erase the history of America. It’s to restate it, to recharacterize it in such a way as to convince a majority of Americans that their country is illegitimate and has been from the get-go — is unjust and racist and bigoted and has been from the get-go.

If enough Americans can be persuaded of all of that — that America is inherently racist, that America is and has been a lie — then it’s over. That is the objective, and we are in the midst of it. Sometimes you’re so close to the forest you don’t see the trees. That’s what we are in the midst of here: An ongoing effort to erase America by discrediting the entire premise of our culture, our history, our founding. The objective is to create in as many American minds as possible that America as founded is not worth defending. Serious times.
