Category Archives: Eye on America

The title of this category says it all. Of course, we could have called it “Watch on the Potomac” – but then we decided to develop a category for that subject anyway. In pre-war Germany – it was called “the Rhine.” Same difference – different time, different geographical region.

Where Fake News Really Comes From

When the USS Maine sailed into Havana Harbor and blew up; the Captain said that an explosion inside the ship had occurred, later confirmed by divers. But the Hearst newspapers printed fake news that a Spanish mine had destroyed the Maine and it precipitated the Spanish American War.

When the Lusitania was seen loading munitions the German Government tried to warn Americans that it carried contraband and subject to being sunk with notices in newspapers. Churchill referred to the ship as “45,000 tons of live bait” which apparently was intended to be sunk to provoke the U.S. Into entering the war. The newspapers went to work drumming up German villainy generally ignoring the fact that the ship was carrying contraband munitions and the Germans had tried to warn Americans. Continue reading

Loony Liberal Actress Claims London Terror ‘May Be’ a ‘Set Up‘ by Trump

Put this one in the loony lefty bin. Hollywood actress Patricia Arquette, known for winning the best supporting actress Oscar two years ago, revealed she’s a conspiracy theorist last night on Twitter.

After an Islamic terrorist killed 4 people and wounded at least 40 others in London Wednesday, the actress claimed it was all a ruse by President Trump to distract us from the FBI investigation into his ties with Russia:

“Remember this If there is a terrorist attack or any crap before this #TrumpRussia disaster is resolved it may be a #SetUp” ~ Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) March 23, 2017

Oh Phuock Me!

So far her tweet hasn’t received that much attention, but Arquette is certainly a media darling. (Read Complete Diatribe)

Cinco de Mayo – More Like ‘Cinco de Cancelled’

The great refrain of the left, the establishment right, and anyone who does not understand human nature and dynamism, has been: “What are you going to do – deport all 11 million illegals?”

Yes we’ve heard it for years. Funny how the 11 million number never changes. But anyway….

The question they all ask is set up to be rhetorical – like it‘s not really a question. To the small minds on the left and the defeatists of the right, it is rhetorical. Of course we won’t and/or can’t round them all up. Therefore the only other choice is to let them all stay.

It, as the smart people say, is a binary choice. There is no other option. And then along comes president Trump… Continue reading

The Federal Government´s Student-Loan Fraud
Obama had a great idea back in 2010: nationalize the student loan program, and its problems would soon go away. It didn’t happen. Instead, more people are refusing to pay their student loans than ever before. In a study released last week, the Consumer Federation of America found that millions of people were in arrears on $137 billion in federal student loans in the first nine months of 2016, an increase of 14% from 2015. All told, the federal government´s portfolio of student loans now stands at a whopping $1.3 trillion… (Continue to full article)

Man Found Alive In The Jungle After 40 Years Claims To Be Missing American POW
The Vietnam War was a tumultuous time in American history. The nation at large was divided on whether or not we should be involved in a conflict so far from home. Nevertheless, thousands of American soldiers fought and died in the war. And many more soldiers were taken prisoner by the Vietcong.

These men were captured, starved, and tormented by the enemy right up until the moment the war ended in 1975. After that, many were sent home, but countless others remained lost… (Continue to full article)

DHS Gets The Jump On Critics

37 Answers About New Travel Ban Executive Order

The Department of Homeland Security has taken a proactive position in the dissemination of information regarding the new travel ban executive order. They have published a list of thirty-seven questions and answers that those impacted and the American people in general may have regarding specifics of its scope and implementation.

They have also gone out of their way to remove any potential triggers or snags which could lead to a repeat of the judicial overreach that led to the controversy and suspension of the previous incarnation. Continue reading

Matlock: Contacts with Russian Embassy

Our press seems to be in a feeding frenzy regarding contacts that President Trump’s supporters had with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak and with other Russian diplomats. The assumption seems to be that there was something sinister about these contacts, just because they were with Russian diplomats. As one who spent a 35-year diplomatic career working to open up the Soviet Union and to make communication between our diplomats and ordinary citizens a normal practice, I find the attitude of much of our political establishment and of some of our once respected media outlets quite incomprehensible. What in the world is wrong with consulting a foreign embassy about ways to improve relations? Anyone who aspires to advise an American president should do just that. Continue reading

Is the Betsy DeVos Appointment a BIG Mistake?

a Dev(i)o(u)s smile?

When Betsy DeVos’ name came up as candidate for Secretary of Education, a howl of protests rose from both sides of the aisle. Being Trump, the President would not budge and managed to get her into that position. Already the ramifications are, well, HUGE!

The very first action of Ms. Devos, as Secretary of Education, was to buck Trump (perhaps that descriptive needs a one letter change) who had overturned Obama’s law to grant rights for men to have access to girl’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms everywhere, including schools. Continue reading

The Deep State/Left Lets the Truth Slip Out Again

Back last year I did an article about Newt Gingrich, where he made the comment to someone that: “We fought a Civil War to insure one national sovereignty, the federal government” or words to that effect. Without even realizing it, Newt had given out the real reason for the War of Northern Aggression–the centralizing of power in the hands of an Elite in Washington and the denigrating of the concept of states rights. No doubt some in the Fake News Media picked up Newt’s indiscretion and just ignored it–as they hoped the rest of us would. Continue reading

11-Year-Old Docked Points for Not Bashing Trump

To say that some people dislike Donald Trump may well be the understatement of the year. It’s hard to imagine any duly elected president seeing so many protests in his first two months in office, yet here we are.

It’s so bad that now an 11-year-old in Annadale, New York, was docked 15 points on a homework assignment because she failed to answer a question demanding students bash Trump: Continue reading

1952 was a Banner Year!

Yes, 1952 was a great year. In 1952, the musical “Pal Joey” which later became a movie, opened on Broadway and ran for 542 performances. That year one of the best detective series, “Dragnet” premiered on television. Jack Webb was the epitome of the tough-as-nails detective Sergeant Joe Friday. We also had an official visit from one of the great statesmen of the 20th century, Winston Churchill. Ted Williams of baseball fame was called back into service with the US Marine Corps. If you are a movie buff, as I am, you may recall that Jimmy Stewart starred in “The Greatest Show On Earth” that year. Sadly, this year, 2017, will be the last for the Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey Circus due to failing attendance. Continue reading

Phoenix Refuses Sanctuary City Status

The City of Phoenix has declined the adoption of a sanctuary policy

The Phoenix City Council turned down a plan to become a sanctuary city, citing that the state’s 2010 immigration law, SB1070, which bans any jurisdiction from providing a safe haven to illegal aliens, as the Associated Press reported.

Phoenix’s Democrat Mayor Greg Stanton made the motion to deny the City from becoming a sanctuary jurisdiction, citing the 2010 immigration law, but then denounced President Donald Trump’s efforts of deporting criminal illegal immigrants. Continue reading

Criminal Aliens Detained in Sanctuary NYC Include Gang Member, Rapists, Sex Offenders

ICE officers arrested and detained 41 criminal illegal immigrants in New York City, New York, which prides itself on being “sanctuary city.”

The criminal aliens detained were part of a targeted arrest operation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

Altogether, officers detained 22 illegal immigrants in New York City, 14 in Long Island, two in Rockland County, two in Orange County and one in Putnam County, according to WABC News.

Of the 41 criminal illegal immigrants, one was involved with the MS-13 gang, a criminal multinational syndicate. Many others were previously charged with rape of children, burglaries, sex crimes, drunk driving and drug distribution. Continue reading

“Organizing for Action” and Destabilizing Trump’s Presidency

O’Shadow

That infamous “community organizer” Barry Sotero, aka Barack Obama, is on the march again, seeking to tear down what he was not able to on his first go-round and making sure no one rebuilds on the Marxist rubble he created. He is using a non-profit 501c4 organization called Organizing for Action to do it.

While most presidents leave the office of president to the person that follows them, Mr. Obama has no intention of doing that. If he couldn’t destroy the country while he was in office then his next attempt will be to try to destroy the man who is trying to save it.

An article by Paul Sperry in the New York Times on February 11th explains how he plans to do just that. Mr. Sperry noted in his article that Comrade Obama was encouraged by the spate of anti-Trump protests that “spontaneously” erupted across the country (and do you wonder who paid for all of them)? Mr. Sperry observed: “Yes, Obama has an army of agitators, numbering more than 30,000–who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working…to set up what will effectively be a shadow government (emphasis mine) to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular ‘America First’ agenda.” Continue reading

Mexicans Vow To Fight Trump By “Jamming US Courts” As Deportations Set To Surge

While much of the media airtime in the past few weeks has been dedicated to Trump’s ongoing legal battle with the US judicial system over his now halted immigration order temporarily blocking the entry of refugees and travelers from seven nations, a separate push to remove illegal immigrant from the US has quietly – or not so quietly – commenced in recent days, resulting in a deeply concerned, at times violent, response by some of the millions of illegal aliens residing in the US.

Schools are supposed to teach kids HOW to think for themselves, not WHAT to think.

So why are so many liberal teachers bullying and brain-washing children with their own intolerant views?

Are you sitting comfortably, children? Then I have a creative task for you. Tell me, is this poem from the Bush era, still relevant today?

‘When the president talks to god

Does he ever think that maybe he’s not?

That that voice is just inside his head

When he kneels next to the presidential bed

Does he ever smell his own bulls**t When the president talks to god.

I doubt it. I doubt it.’

BLM Anti-Trump Protest In Seattle: ‘We Need To Start Killing People

WARNING: Offensive language from an offensive individual.

During an anti-Trump protest in Seattle this weekend, an activist associated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took to the megaphone to voice her support for, among other things, “killing people,” and “killing the White House.”

While she said that, another protester can be heard saying, “Burn it!

She also says, “White people, give your fucking money, your fucking house, your fucking property, we need it fucking all,” as another protester responds “reparations!

Fuck white supremacy, fuck the U.S. empire, fuck your imperialist ass lives. That shit gotta go.” Continue reading

It doesn’t take much of a trigger to push extremely large crowds of very angry protesters into committing acts of rioting and violence.  And rioting and violence can ultimately lead to widespread civil unrest and calls for “revolution”.  The election of Donald Trump was perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and we have already seen that a single move by Trump can literally cause protests to erupt from coast to coast within 48 hours. “…you would have to be blind not to see the hate, anger and frustration that are all growing like cancer in the hearts of our young people…This is a time for the peacemakers.“… (Continue to full article)

White House Fires Acting Attorney General Sally Yates

The White House on Monday fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, after she instructed Justice Department attorneys not to defend in court an executive order signed by President Donald Trump suspending immigration from seven countries.

Ms. Yates learned of her firing Monday evening, in a hand-delivered letter from the White House’s Office of Personnel, according to a person familiar with the matter. In a statement, the White House said Ms. Yates “betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States.”

Ms. Yates was replaced by Dana Boente, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, until Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee, Jeff Sessions, is confirmed by the U.S. Senate, which could happen next week. (Continue Reading at the Wall Street Journal)

Grand opening of abandoned Walmart for illegals

United States residents voiced an uproar on social media over the opening of an abandoned Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, which a local television station reported is slated to serve as a taxpayer-funded shelter for an untold number of illegal aliens from across the Mexican border.

As Texas’ southernmost city – which is just a stone’s throw from Mexican border city of Matamoros – Brownsville is the latest location of a hotly contested border dispute, where a federally funded humanitarian group says the oversized vacated retail building will help teenaged youth who have arrived into the country illegally.

Why the Electronic Immigration System Is Broken

Along with Draining The Swamp in WDC – we need to DRAIN THE SWAMP of all the ILLEGALS whose mere presence costs each American in money, education, jobs, health care, – all of which should be charged back to the country they came from. The courts go after those who fail to pay SUPPORT for their children so WHY should some nation not have to pay for their ‘children’ who are illegally living in America??????? Think of the money that would come into American cities for all those ‘Sanctuary Cities’ who are now being ‘care givers’ for those foreign ‘children’. How many ILLEGALS and their Anchor babies are living in Chicago, Seattle, New York, etc., etc. The actual COST for each of them being sent to those foreign countries for America babysitting their ‘children’ might make them rethink the taking of those ‘children’ back to their home land, especially with the increase in the minimum wages now being paid to American workers. Think about that concept…

If Mexico think the border wall is bad he should think of having to PAY for all the Mexican ILLEGALS here in America drawing all those welfare type benefits and the pay for work they have drawn that belongs to LEGAL Americans. We need to get this idea to Pres. Trump

  • BILL THE FOREIGN NATIONS FOR OUR taking care of their ‘children’

A Preview Of Trump’s Seven Imminent Executive Orders

Having already signed a (mostly symbolic) executive order on Obamacare on Friday night, urging US agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions deemed to impose fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals, Trump is preparing to unload a volley of many more executive orders. Courtesy of Axios, which quotes “one of the best-wired Republican lobbyists in town”, here is a preview of the initial round of Trump executive actions, some of which may hit as soon as Sunday afternoon: Continue reading
