Larry Hogan’s Bureaucrats Shut Down Latest Overpass Display — “Nightmare Is Over”!

Maryland activists Ed Hunter and Lewis Porter reported that yesterday afternoon Maryland State Highway Administration apparatchiks took down their overpass display on Gorman Road Bridge over I-95 between Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.

But the two activists declared they were able to keep their display up for about an hour before the Highway Meanies arrived.

Of course, abridging free speech rights no longer bothers the Big Left, nor rarely troubles the Establishment GOP whether in Washington, D. C., or in Annapolis.

Maryland Establishment virtue-signalers bewail Donald Trump’s election by regular Americans. 

And during the last presidential campaign, many of the public voices of Mr. Trump’s own party in Maryland belittled themselves by deploring or ignoring their nominee.**

Our Political Class nationally simply doesn’t understand how disheartened so many thoughtful but civil American patriots have been to see our constitutional practices and core American values trashed for eight years during the Obama Regime — and with no effective pushback from an unmanned GOP leadership!

That is why these eight Obama years were a nightmare!

The Trump Reprieve—And The Indispensable Role Of The Trump Movement!

The extent and intensity of the pushback against president-elect Donald Trump — even before he takes office on Friday, January 20 — tells patriots what America barely escaped from a Hillary Clinton victory: completion of the Obama transformation of America!

And not just more open borders and more job-killing trade deals and the acceleration of Muslim refugee importation. 

But a Clinton Administration intent on using Federal power to impose even more Cultural Marxism on our state and local governments!

Think consent decrees on police departments (part of the “war on cops”) and the widespread implementation of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).

Had Mrs. Clinton won, moreover, the House Republican leadership was prepared to move ahead on Big Immigration.

Only a Donald Trump could have put together a campaign strong enough to break the Clinton Machine — and to start to reshape a Republican Party whose leadership had become globalist and whose first instinct had been to capitulate to a Red-Green-Axis-oriented White House.

Thanks to Trump’s election, we have a reprieve from the destructive Obama-Clinton sentence for Americans.

How Should Patriots Use This Providential Reprieve To Restore America?

That is where a Trump Movement comes into play.

For the Trump election is hardly the end of the battle.

It is rather the start of our own long march through our government and our institutions to restore our historic values.

Tomorrow confirmation hearings begin for senator Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States.

Trump supporters everywhere should be leaning on their United States Senators to confirm Mr. Sessions.

There are more than purely legal achievements in Sessions’ strong record–

Back in April 2015, Hudson Institute senior fellow John Fonte wrote about Jeff Sessions–

“Clearly, the political leader of the conservative populist coalition is the indefatigable Senator Sessions. Day in and day out, for the past two years, Sessions has been issuing memos and talking points, giving speeches, and making media appearances explicating a coherent populist message. The Alabamian is a conviction politician. He is not ‘positioning’ himself for some strategic advantage; rather, he favors limiting (not eliminating) legal immigration because he believes doing so is best for the American people.” (Highlighting Forum’s.)

Don’t count on your local Republican Party to use this precious reprieve to advance patriots’ goals. 

Typically they restrict their role to electioneering for GOP incumbents, not acting as engines of accountability.

We can rarely push them to ask incumbents questions like “why did you vote for last year’s Paul Ryan budget?” — or get local GOP meetings to discuss exigent concerns like accelerating Muslim importation into the US.

Last month we explained–

Trump Patriots acting through their own well-organized statewide organizations can have a strong voice for the new president’s campaign priorities that will be heard by their Congressional delegations.

VDARE’s James Kirkpatrick elaborates

“Similarly, within the GOP, the critical need is to develop a crop of ‘Donald Trump Republicans’ at the local and state levels, running in his name and on the populist platform he campaigned for. Even if Trump himself does not explicitly endorse insurgent candidates, this can be explained away as simply something he has to do because of his position as head of the GOP. The debate should always be framed as though Trump wants populists to take over the GOP—even if he says nothing of the kind. This is a Narrative the Main Stream Media will be eager to believe and to magnify.”

The Trump Reprieve is our last chance — let’s get to work!

Remember the Other Team — from both parties — has not stopped working. They are not going to allow a second reprieve if the first fails.

Syrian Muslims to WV–Does Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito Want To Be Seen As The “Frau Merkel” of West Virginia?

Today national refugee resettlement expert Ann Corcoran highlights in a post the fact that the Obama State Department approves 100 Syrian Muslims for West Virginia state capitol

“Where were you WV Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito and Republican Rep. Alex Mooney?  Only two choices!—either asleep-at-the-switch or in support of this move by a local ‘interfaith’ group to be named a federal subcontracting agency for the purpose of beginning a new refugee resettlement site in the state.  (Charleston previously received a few refugees through Catholic Charities, but no where near this scale).
If Capito and Mooney had put up significant opposition, we would have heard about it and this decision might have turned out differently. [Highlighting Forum’s throughout.]
Does Obama think he can stick it to West Virginia (Trump territory) voters in his final weeks in office? And, where is Joe [Manchin]?  He must be all for it too!”

Both senators Capito and Manchin are either now, or in the case of centrist Manchin will be in the coming Congress, members of the powerful Appropriations Committee: they are hardly without influence in Washington, D.C.’s Deep State!

Frau Merkel and Berlin!

But Dutch patriot Geert Wilders this week declared about the Berlin terror attack of Monday evening–

“Let no-one tell you that only the perpetrators of these crimes are to blame. The politicians, who welcomed Islam into their country, are guilty as well. And it is not just Frau Merkel in Germany, it is the entire political elite in Western Europe. Out of political-correctness, they have deliberately turned a blind eye to Islam. They have refused to inform themselves about its true nature.”

Time for West Virginia Trumpers of both parties to have a heart-to-heart with their senators and Alex Mooney!

Transition Storm Warnings: Time For Movement Trumpers To Organize By State?

“There’s a famous story about President Franklin D. Roosevelt meeting with a group of progressive activists. They told him to pursue a certain political program. After the meeting, FDR supposedly said: ‘All right, you’ve convinced me. Now go out there and put pressure on me!’ I was reminded of this story when President-Elect Trump recently spoke in Ohio. He urged activists to fight just as hard for his policies as they did to put him in office. After all, what soon to be President Trump believes or doesn’t believe is less important than whether there is sufficient political pressure behind his agenda.” — James Kirkpatrick

As Donald Trump takes office, he needs his base pushing hard behind him to achieve his crucial campaign priorities.

Ann Coulter today tweeted the background bluntly –“Only 1 presidential candidate called for a wall. A Muslim ban. Deportation of illegals. His own party denounced him. He won in a landslide.”

Coulter pointed to “The Preibus-Trump power struggle.”

Conservative Review’s (CR) Daniel Horowitz suggested in a podcast that the Trump Transition was “making the Establishment great again”–

“Yet, somehow we take it as a given that in a Republican administration the most powerful cabinet pick — secretary of State — could be given to someone who is pro-Common Core, anti-sanctions, pro-carbon tax, anti-energy independence, and a leader in the homosexual agenda.
Now we hear that John Bolton might not be picked for deputy secretary of State, while liberals such as Elliot Abrams and Richard Haass are being considered instead.
This is part of a pattern of choosing the path to least resistance. Kris Kobach was passed over as DHS secretary and likely as deputy as well for the same reason.
Finally, we show how Democrats never surrender their principles even when they lose power. Why do we surrender ours when we win?
John Kasich won’t even fight for a pro-life bill because he refuses to stand up to the legal profession, yet liberals have no problem thwarting federal immigration law.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)
(Senior Editor Horowitz also refers to Alex Isenstadt‘s & Kenneth P. Vogel’s Politico post, Divisions deepen inside Trump Tower.)

CR’s Jordan Schachtel reveals about the Secretary of State-designate that “America-last Rex Tillerson has quite a cozy relationship with the Islamic supremacist nation of Qatar”!

“Rex Tillerson’s Qatar is not the real Qatar. One is left to speculate: How many other dictatorial countries has he provided cover for in order to curry favor with their leaders?”

Last February Breitbart’s Julia Hahn exposed OMB chief-designate Mick Mulvaney as “Pro-Amnesty Mick Mulvaney: Immigration Most Important Issue To South Carolina Voters”–

“Moreover, video footage, captured during the height of the Gang of Eight amnesty push, reveals Mulvaney publicly demeaning his conservative constituents and colleagues, such as influential Iowa Congressman Rep. Steve King for opposing Rep. Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio’s agenda of mass amnesty—suggesting that such views are ‘absurd’ and ‘stupid.'”
. . . . . . . . . .
“Similarly, in a congressional hearing last year, Mulvaney criticized Heritage scholar Robert Rector, who is considered to be “the father of the 1996 welfare-reform law,” for providing U.S. lawmakers with factual evidence that granting amnesty to poor migrants would strain the nation’s federal welfare programs at the expense of Mulvaney’s own taxpaying constituents. Mulvaney vehemently objected to Rector’s analysis and suggested that admitting poor and uneducated migrants who are ‘literally starving to death’ in foreign countries would be a boon to America.

To pick two (one Blue, one Purple) states with which we have some familiarity, Maryland had 248,343 Trump primary supporters and Virginia had 356,840 Trump primary supporters. The GOP primary vote likely reflects the core Trump supporters in these two states.  Yet, in both states, the GOP Establishment disdained and was hostile to Trump although he won the Maryland primary and had a plurality in the Virginia primary.

ADD-ON December 21:  West Virginia — right next to Maryland and Virginia — had 157,238 Trump primary supporters or 77% of the GOP primary. Donald Trump carried West Virginia by 68.7 % in the general election winning every county.

Trump Patriots acting through their own well-organized statewide organizations can have a strong voice for the new president’s campaign priorities that will be heard by their Congressional delegations.

VDARE’s James Kirkpatrick elaborates

“Similarly, within the GOP, the critical need is to develop a crop of ‘Donald Trump Republicans’ at the local and state levels, running in his name and on the populist platform he campaigned for. Even if Trump himself does not explicitly endorse insurgent candidates, this can be explained away as simply something he has to do because of his position as head of the GOP. The debate should always be framed as though Trump wants populists to take over the GOP—even if he says nothing of the kind. This is a Narrative the Main Stream Media will be eager to believe and to magnify.”

One more Kirkpatrick insight – –

“Thus, the most effective way to rise against Trump, if it becomes necessary is to claim it is being done in his own name. In Imperial Russia, currently perhaps the most hated society among American intellectuals and journalists, there was supposedly the saying, ‘If only the Tsar knew!’ The presumption was if only the leader knew the extent of the problems that were being concealed from him by his wicked advisors, the people would be saved.”

Stay tuned as we track Trump Deplorables organizing!

Trump America Celebrates Its First Christmas!

merrychristmasoverpassmedia-8in

Our Maryland-Virginia Overpass Media posted their Christmas Greeting on the first Friday of this December!

Activists Ed Hunter and Lewis Porter put up their Yuletide banners from 3:00 to 5:30 PM on Gorman Road Bridge over I-95 between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

They reported a greater than normal reaction from the flow:

  • many more yeas than normal,
  • fewer boos than usual — but those were “much nastier.”

Overpass Media plans to continue supporting the Trump Movement’s goals throughout 2017 in both Maryland and Virginia!

Will West Virginia Voices In Congress Speak Out On Importing More Syrians? Part Of A National “Seeding” Program In Our Cities and Towns!

Yesterday national blogger Ann Corcoran in her Report: Charleston, WV pro-Syrian Muslim resettlement rally held reported–

“As I told you a few days ago a Charleston ‘Interfaith’ group was planning a rally to push for the resettlement of Syrian refugees to the state capitol. And, as I mentioned then, I am struck by the fact that the rally for refugees was so specific about Syrians when we bring refugees from all over the world (and resettlement contracting agencies don’t get to pick only those ethnic groups they prefer).
Why are they so concerned about Syrians? Why is the Charleston, West Virginia group so discriminatory against other ethnic groups?
And here are my bigger questions: Where is Alex? Where is Shelley? Where is Joe?

manchin

“Come on Joe! Even if the Republicans are too squishy to speak up, surely you get it!”
Considering that the controversy about the resettlement of Syrian refugees in American towns is one of the major issues that pushed Donald Trump over the finish line last week, shouldn’t we expect elected officials like Rep. Alex Mooney (R) in whose district this rally occurred and US Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R) and Joe Manchin (D) to have the guts to say where they stand on the issue!”(Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Asked author (Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America) Corcoran–

“Are they for or against this plan from Washington?

One story about the rally is here.  There was a counter-rally, so no one can say any longer that there is no opposition to the plan to expand the resettlement of Syrian Muslims (99% of all Syrians entering the U.S. are Muslims) into West Virginia.”

Some background–

Let’s take a look at the Liberty Scores (compiled by Conservative Review) of Representative Mooney and Senators Capito and Manchin: click here.

And their Immigration-Reduction Grades (compiled by NumbersUSA): click here.

Among the (thankfully outgoing) Obama Administration’s goals has been to transform America by changing its people.

The Refugee Admissions Program has been an important instrument to advance this. 

And it is also supported by some major corporations seeking cheaper labor.

As the most conservative member of the West Virginia delegation as well as Charleston’s voice in the U.S. House, Representative Alex Mooney should be in the forefront of opposing the importation of Syrian Muslims into the Mountain State.

RIOTS Are Not Healthy for Children And Other Living Things

War is not healthy

Anti-war-protest emblem of the Vietnam Era.

Back in the Vietnam War era, many idealistic friends were touched by an anti-war poster–a sunflower emblem that framed what became, for a time, a well-known “peace movement” slogan:

“War is not healthy for children and other living things.”

Now, with the many anti-Trump demonstrations morphing into riots in our cities —with arson, property damage and looting in places like Portland OR, Oakland CA, and Indianapolis—I think we should update that slogan:

Riots are not healthy for children and other living things.”

What’s A Riot To Do With?

To people of common sense, a political demonstration might make all the sense in the world.

It is a time-honored way to oppose wrong policies and to produce a flesh-and-blood show of the strength of support for what you believe.

But people of common sense see riots as just plain “senseless.”

Blocking traffic?

Opening up a store windows with bricks and looting?

Setting dumpsters on fire?

Beating people up?

Yelling “Kill the Cops?”

Menacing residential streets with loaded guns?

Luring out a host of misguided students to use as riot fodder?

Risking setting fire to entire neighborhoods?

Yikes!

You’ve got to admit — rioting is risky for “children and other living things” in those cities.

There is a discerning fellow who for years has been writing under the name of “Sundance” in an online blog called The Conservative Treehouse. 

Over time, I have come to consider his “take” on unfolding events very seriously.

Two days after the Tuesday election, on Thursday, November 10, Sundance wrote about the Trump-Obama White House meeting that day.

He looked past the famous handshake and zeroed in on the big-city demonstrations and riots which had begun on the previous Wednesday and have continued since.

Asked Sundance–

“That raises the question ‘why organize the protests’?  The answer therein outlines how severely the Obama and Clinton groups estimate the risk.  They are trying to save themselves through a process of applying leverage against the risk that Donald Trump represents.

In essence Obama/Clinton agents are undermining Trump’s possible action against them by creating a narrative where the best play for President Trump is to allow the usurping agents to creep away, albeit with suitcases of cash, quietly into the night; and avoid sunlight upon their prior unlawful activity.

The meeting today between the victor Donald Trump and the defeated Barack Obama is essentially a meeting to discuss the terms of surrender.  President Obama is seeking safe passage and amnesty for prior usurpation.

In the meeting today President Obama, and by extension Hillary Clinton, are requesting safe passage using the leverage of they’ll burn down the nation if not provided – hence the protests needed last night.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Sundance anticipated last Thursday that we would see one of two paths coming out of the Obama Administration’s brinkmanship:

  • “If the ridiculous election protests continue again tonight, then President Obama has not called them off.  That means he and Clinton received no substantive assurances, and are worried about being held to account – prosecuted and investigated.
  • If the ridiculous election protest do not happen again tonight, then President Obama has called them off.  That means he and Clinton feel more comfortable they will not be held to account – prosecuted and investigated.”

The demonstrations and riots, of course, have continued.

John Perazzo writing in Front Page Magazine reflects:

“From reading the various mainstream media accounts of these events, one comes away with the distinct impression that they are grassroots actions that began organically among ordinary, concerned, well-meaning citizens.

But alas, if one were to think that, one would be wrong.”

Front Page Magazine, founded by the venerable leftist-turned-conservative David Horowitz, includes a vast accumulation of research on how the Political Left (both individuals and organizations) have operated over by now several generations.  

Horowitz calls this invaluable resource  “Discover the Networks (DTN)”

Perazzo draws on DTN to sketch a kind of wiring diagram of the organizational spark plugs that “orchestrated” today’s anti-Trump riots—

“Contrary to media misrepresentations, many of the supposedly spontaneous, organic, anti-Trump protests we have witnessed in cities from coast to coast were in fact carefully planned and orchestrated, in advance, by a pro-Communist organization called the ANSWER Coalition, which draws its name from the acronym for ‘Act Now to Stop War and End Racism.’

ANSWER was established in 2001 by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, a group staffed in large part by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party. In 2002, the libertarian author Stephen Suleyman Schwartz described ANSWER as an “ultra-Stalinist network” whose members served as ‘active propaganda agents for Serbia, Iraq, and North Korea, as well as Cuba, countries they repeatedly visit and acclaim.’

Since its inception, ANSWER has consistently depicted the United States as a racist, sexist, imperialistic, militaristic nation guilty of unspeakable crimes against humanity—in other words, a wellspring of pure evil.

When ANSWER became a leading organizer of the massive post-9/11 demonstrations against the Patriot Act and the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, it formed alliances with other likeminded entities such as Not In Our Name (a project of the Revolutionary Communist Party) and United For Peace and Justice (a pro-Castro group devoted to smearing America as a cesspool of bigotry and oppression).”

Perazzo sums up–

“In short, the anti-Trump protests that are currently making headlines are 100% contrived, fake, phony exhibitions of street theater, orchestrated entirely by radicals and revolutionaries whose chief objective is to push America ever farther to the political left. Moreover, they seek to utterly demoralize conservatives into believing that public opposition to their own (conservative) political and social values is growing more powerful, more passionate, and more widespread with each passing day.”

So there you have it on riots as continuing and dangerous gaslighting* theater of our politics today.

We will see how the demonstrations and riots** play out at the Inauguration… and then throughout the Trump Administration.

It’s going to be a very long war to restore our Republic.

Representative David Brat Warns About Rushing The House Speaker’s Election!

“Why the rush? Let’s slow down, think and properly plan this so we get it right. Look at what happened in the last two years when we didn’t make our agenda absolutely clear to the American people. If we rush this Speaker election, the American people will feel manipulated once again. This is no time to undermine morale and do an end-run around them.”
Representative Dave Brat (VA-7)

Representative Dave Brat (VA-7)

Breitbart’s Julia Hahn in her “Dave Brat Urges Delay on Speaker Vote; A ‘Better Way’ Did Not Animate This Historic Election” summarized yesterday the Virginia conservative’s plea–

“Brat explained that while Congress has fought for donor class priorities like fast tracking the Trans Pacific Partnership and ‘taking up deals on behalf of big business, Congress didn’t bother with the issues that matter to struggling Americans back home.’
‘That’s what this election was about,’ Brat writes.
‘Speaker Ryan promised last year that if elected, he would adhere to regular order. It didn’t happen,’ Brat added. ‘This year, the House didn’t even vote on a budget.’
‘Is this what the American people want?’ Brat asked.
In the piece, Brat outlined what he viewed as the mandate the American people have given to Congress:

On November 8th, Americans voted for good paying jobs, for national sovereignty, for America’s priorities over those of a global elite, for law and order, for securing the border and temporarily pausing the inflow of foreign refugees from terror hot spots until they can be properly vetted. Americans decisively voted against Obama’s rule by pen and by phone, and against Obamacare. We voted for a strong America that does not get rolled by China or Russia. We voted for trade policies that prioritize the needs of American workers; for rolling back the crushing regulations faced by small businesses, and to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington corruption and ossified Washington cronies. It is overwhelmingly clear where America stands.’

Brat explained that while Speaker Ryan may not have been paying attention to the working men and women of this country, ‘some of us were listening and many of us have run on these breakthrough issues for years.’ ” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Readers will recall that last January 13 Sessions, Brat Deliver[ed] Letter To GOP: Side With Voters – Not Donors – On Immigration

“Instead, we should correctly define the words ‘immigration reform’ to refer exclusively to the policies our voters – and all voters – can cheer and celebrate.  Real ‘immigration reform’ protects American workers, families, and livelihoods.  Defined this way, it is always the ‘right time’ to promote ‘immigration reform.’
If we want to lay out a ‘bold, conservative agenda,’ and demonstrate that we serve the voters – and not the special interests – we should begin by advancing bills to reduce out-of-control immigration.  That is the reform our voters want, and that is what we must deliver. 
Such action will not only bolster our existing electorate, but draw millions of new voters to our party from the ranks of independents and disaffected Democrats.  Polling shows that across all parties and backgrounds, voters agree by a nearly 10:1 margin that companies should raise wages instead of bringing in new foreign labor.  This is the right policy, and the winning strategy.”

While the House Republican Conference will likely approve Ryan today, the real test comes when the 115th Congress convenes on January 3, 2017.

In the new Congress, the Speaker must gain 218 votes or a majority of those present in an on-the-record vote in public on the House floor. (Also see Politico’s Rachael Bade here.)

Read all of Julia Hahn’s post of yesterday here and the Sessions-Brat letter of last January hereand have a heart-to-heart with your House GOP member before the January Speaker vote.

Virginia Republicans Must Come To Grips With Sharia: Slogans From A State Chair & A Single Politician Won’t Do!

News4 Washington (NBC) reported yesterday evening in their Virginia Republicans Visit Mosque to Address Concerns:

“As Muslims worry about how the election of Donald Trump will affect them, Republican leaders visited a mosque on Friday in Sterling, Virginia.
The All Dulles Area Muslim Society, aka The Adams Center, invited Virginia state Republicans to join their afternoon prayer services.
‘We wanted to really address the anxiety that we know the Muslim community in our area has,’ newly reelected Rep. Barbara Comstock said.
John Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, said he wanted to share a message of freedom
‘One of the things they need to hear from me is that the Virginia Republican party values religious liberty and we stand with them, and they’re part of this community too,’ he said.
Many attendees of the mosque, which is one of the largest in the D.C. region, said they worry that Trump will ban Muslims from entering the country.
During the campaign, Trump said that if elected he would enact a ‘total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.’
After facing backlash, he repackaged the proposal to describe a suspension of immigration ‘from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur.’
Comstock and Whitbeck said they believed that Trump had changed his position on a Muslim ban.
‘I think he himself has changed that,’ Comstock said. “What I am saying and what I have said is that that is not constitutional and it’s really un-American.’
Whitbeck also rejected any ban on Muslims entering the country.
“The Virginia Republican Party is the party of religious liberty. We don’t support banning Muslims in the United States of America,’ he said.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout)

        . . . . . . . . . .

“Northern Virginia resident Jafar Imam said he was particularly concerned about whether Trump would keep out Syrians, ‘those who are suffering enormously.’
‘He will not allow a single Syrian refugee coming to United States,’ Imam said.”

What Are Whitbeck & Comstock Thinking?

These Republican sachems don’t seem to realize what they are playing at.

As we explained three weeks ago in our Islam, The Adams Center, & Representative Barbara Comstock: Why Is She Trafficking With This Organization?

‘Mohamed Magid is the Imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS).
DiscoverTheNetworks has an extensive biography of Magid.
Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer declared in his 2015 article, Obama quietly reveals that he met with Muslim leaders with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood–
 “The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president of the Islamic Society of North America, according to the group’s website.” [Mohamed Magid is now past president of ISNA but is on the ISNA Executive Council]

. . . . . . . . . .

”the Islamic Society of North America was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case, and has admitted ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

With the defeat of Hillary Clinton, our country has escaped a major disaster.

Breitbart’s Julia Hahn explained earlier this month in her “Under Hillary Clinton Presidency, U.S. Muslim Population Would Exceed France’s by 2024”

“Many have warned if the U.S. continues at its current record pace of Muslim migration—or if pro-Islamic migration politicians, such as Ryan and Clinton, further increase Muslim migration—the U.S. risks following in Europe’s footsteps.
As Sen. Jeff Sessions has previously explained, ‘It’s an unpleasant, but unavoidable fact that bringing in large unassimilated flows of migrants from the Muslim world creates the conditions possible for radicalisation and extremism to take hold, just like they’re seeing in Europe.'”

Mark Steyn expands to Bill O’Reilly from Steyn’s recent first-hand knowledge–

“O’REILLY: Political commentator Mark Steyn recently returned from Europe where he attended the priest funeral and spoke with a number of people affected by the Jihad. Mr. Steyn joins us now from Colchester, VT. What did you learn there? What was the headline that you learned in Europe, Mr. Steyn?
STEYN: Well, you said at the top of the show that migrants aren’t the problem, jihadists are. And that’s true but there is a crude arithmetic here, Bill which is that the more Muslims you have, the more terrorism you have. So, that France, Belgium and Germany have very high Muslim populations, and they have a lot of terrorism. When you were in Poland and the Czech Republic, they have very few Muslims so they don’t have terrorism. And the question for Europe, and I think for the United States a few years down the line is whether you can contain this, just by the big security state. I was on the beach.
O’REILLY: Go ahead.
STEYN: Well, no, you can’t. I mean, there were soldiers everywhere in France now. Outside of schools, shopping centers, railway stations. I was on the beach at Saint-Tropez where the topless women have armed soldiers with automatic weapons patrolling between the topless women. It’s a sad sight and it’s an absurd sight. Ultimately it’s no solution.”

To add to these realities, Constitutional expert and former Federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy insists Of Course There Should Be an Ideological Test in Immigration:

“In the decades-long onslaught of radical Islam against the United States, honesty went out with the benighted notions that we should ‘know thine enemy’ and, God forbid, train our national-security agents in that enemy’s ideology, methods, and objectives.
In our alternative universe, you are not supposed to remember that there is an American constitutional framework of liberty, popular sovereignty, and equality before the law.
You are not supposed to realize that aliens are expected to exhibit fidelity to this constitutional framework as a precondition to joining our society.
You are not supposed to know that there is an Islamic law, sharia, that has far more to do with governance, economics, warfare, civil rights, domestic relations, criminal prosecution, and fashion than it does with spiritual life.
And you are absolutely not supposed to grasp that sharia is antithetical to the Constitution, to the very foundational American principle that the people may make law for themselves, live as they see fit, and chart their own destiny.
You are not supposed to connect the dots and ask, ‘Well, how is it conceivable that any sharia-adherent alien could faithfully pledge allegiance to our Constitution?’
So, instead, we shrug our shoulders, mumble something about ‘freedom of religion,’ and bury our heads back in the sand — as if the structure of government and the decision of which limb to smite for which larceny had anything to do with religion in a free society that rejects the establishment of any state religion and separates spiritual from political life.
Sharia is not religion. Sharia is a totalitarian societal structure and legal corpus that anti-American radicals seek to impose. Yes, their motivation for doing so is their interpretation of their religion — the fundamentalist, literalist construction of Islam. But that does not make sharia itself a matter of ‘religion’ in the Western sense, even if vast numbers of Arab Muslims — for whom there is no cognizable separation of mosque and state — say otherwise. If Karl Marx had said, ‘The workers must control the means of production because God says so,’ that would not have transmogrified the tyranny of Communism into the ‘freedom of religion.'”

McCarthy, author of The Grand Jihad, continues–

“There are no constitutional constraints against excluding aliens on grounds of anti-American political ideology. Excluding anti-Americans from America is common sense and was regarded as such for much of our history. In a time of radical Islamic threat to our national security, Donald Trump is right to propose that aliens from sharia-supremacist areas be carefully vetted for adherence to anti-constitutional principles.
Leftists — those notorious disciples of the Framers — claim this is unconstitutional. When shown it is not, they claim that it is against our ‘tradition’ — being, you know, big fans of American tradition. When shown that this is not the case either, when shown that our history supports ideological exclusion of anti-Americans, leftists are down to claiming, ‘It is not who we are’ — by which they always mean it is not who they are, and who they would force the rest of us to be.”

In Virginia as elsewhere, bringing in sharia-supremacists to our country is too large a threat to our national security and national values to be left to  willfully-blind deals between individual politicians and local mosques. 

The Republican Party of Virginia needs to spell out its position on importing people whose values are antithetical to our Constitution and who are unlikely to assimilate into American society.

Blue Ridge Forum–Standing Tall For Donald Trump!

Be Trump Strong!

Don’t let anyone mislead you: Hillary Clinton will take away our freedoms in ways some of us have not even imagined. 

The tumultuous way back will be costly and socially corrosive and decades-long.

And you — we — all of us including our children and grandchildren — will have to lead it. 

For as we all have learned over the last five years, we can no longer depend on many of our politicians.

So go vote for Donald Trump — and bring your fellow patriots!
