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.
If I was to name one of the more interesting and unpredictable parts of my week, it would have to be the handful of hours I spend volunteering in a children’s program in the inner city of Minneapolis. The kids I see week after week come from a variety of backgrounds, but if classified according to the categories used by public schools, many would fit into the African American, Free-Reduced Lunch fields.
Lest one think that I’m selflessly giving of myself, I’m not. I’m getting many great returns, one of which I received the other day when a 5-year-old student came up and gave me a genuinely loving hug. He was soon joined by another little guy… and another… until the outpouring of love was literally knocking me off my feet!
It’s precious moments like this that cause one to reflect on what these kids are facing in life. Where will they be in 10 or 15 years? Will they be set on the course to becoming successful young men, or will they be caught up in a cycle of dysfunction and violence? Continue reading →
President Donald Trump, in a speech in Iowa, said he’s going to ask Congress to write some legislation that will bar those coming to America from tapping into taxpayer entitlements for a period of five years.
All hail the Trump.
This is one of those common-sense measures that leaves the average American cheering — and the left reeling. After all, a Democrat without a public dole to offer is largely a Democrat without a voter.
What else can a Democrat offer a newcomer to America — a job? A limited government and message of self-worth? Or, how about this: An anti-President Donald Trump sign to wave?
Right. Democrats are going to oppose this legislation, if and when it comes, and oppose it hard.
Those of you who did not read my first book, “Fasciunism” ‘The Real American Politics”, will undoubtedly have no idea of what the word Fasciunism means. That is due to the fact that Fasciunism is a word, which I coined to describe what is going on in American politics today. My first book on the subject was written and self-published in 1999. Since then things have become much worse. So, for those of you wondering just what I mean by Fasciunism and Fasciunist, here are a couple of definitions.
A political philosophy combining fascism and communism in
order to take over a country, eliminate its sovereignty and turn
it over to a one-world government.
A person who believes in a one-world government and will do
anything to see that it comes to pass, including giving up
sovereignty and using fascist and communist tactics.
As you probably gathered, the words are a combination of the words Fascist and Communist and of Fascism and Communism. Why combine two words that are direct opposites? Because they are really not direct opposites at all. The entire progressive movement, Democrat party, liberals and main-stream-media, (but I repeat myself, they are really all one organization) have it wrong. Actually both Fascism and Communism are on the far left. Continue reading →
As liberal McCarthyism continues searching for Russian monsters under Trump administration beds, it might serve us well to remember the Obama administration scandals, for which there were no special prosecutors appointed, no grand juries convened, not even a leaked memo to the New York Times via a friendly professor at Columbia University.
A few years ago, President Obama called the scandals swirling around his administration “phony scandals”. As The Hill reported in 2013:
“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,” Obama said in an economic address at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill…
Obama on Wednesday did not specify which controversies were “phony,” but the administration has been attacked over National Security Agency surveillance programs leaked to the public, the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, the Department of Justice’s seizing of media phone records, and last year’s attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Phony scandals are those that do not have a smidgeon of evidence of a crime, like alleged Trump collusion with the Russians or obstruction of an investigation that was never stopped or even slowed down. Phony scandals do not produce body bags as the Obama administration produced in Benghazi and during Operation Fast and Furious — the Obama administration’s gun-running operation in which it armed Mexican drug lords and cartels with heavy weapons for which the U.S. Border Patrol had no match or protection. That gun-running operation led to the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Continue reading →
A few months ago we noted that 31% of college students in the U.S., or roughly 2.4 million kids, literally admitted to using student loan money to fund their binge drinking trips to Cancun and Daytona Beach for spring break.
Now, while most of us who’ve had the opportunity to live in the real world, outside the comfort of mom and dad’s basement, would consider it a bad idea to borrow 10-20 year debt to take a vacation we couldn’t afford, many college students seem to think it’s a perfectly acceptable practice.
Now, to be clear, we have no problem with making bad decisions, sometimes those are the most fun (see pic below for evidence). We only ask that the people who make the bad decisions are also the same people who get to deal with the consequences of those bad decisions. Continue reading →
City council in Texas furious they cannot just take man’s land who is rich enough to fight them
If you ever wondered how entitled to your land and how cocky your elected board of supervisors are in regards to your property, all you have to do is watch the short video clip of such a “civil servant” from Dallas City Council, frustrated that she cannot confiscate for pennies on the dollar via eminent domain, the property of a wealthy Texan who had the money to fight them for years.
Monty Bennett owns the East Texas Ranch LP which has been in his family since 1955 when it was purchased by his grandparents. Tarrant Regional Water District wanted to run huge pipes through his property and he did not want the family land altered by the digging and wildlife affected by the 84-inch pipes. He sued them under Civil Action No.2014C-0144. Continue reading →
In the wake of President Trump’s exit from the Paris climate treaty, reactions from other quarters were predictably swift, nasty, sanctimonious and hypocritical.
Al Gore paused near one of the private jets he takes to hector lesser mortals to say the action will bring “a global weather apocalypse.” Billionaire Tom Steyer got rich selling coal but called the President’s action “a traitorous act of war.” Actor-activist Mark Ruffalo railed that Trump has “the death of whole nations on his hands.” Michael Moore said the action was “a crime against humanity.” Former President Obama said it threatened “the one planet we’ve got” (to say nothing of what’s left of his executive orders legacy).

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee called Sunday for a congressional investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she’s concerned by former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday that Lynch asked him to downplay his “investigation” into the Democratic presidential nominee as merely a “matter.”
Comey said the political request called into the question the credibility of Lynch’s Department of Justice and made him “queasy.” Continue reading →
Texas’ recent rejection of a bill enabling public-private partnerships was seen as a setback for President Trump’s proposal to pay for a new infrastructure program. But it merely exemplifies the long-running U.S. trend of private dollars staying on the sidelines instead of in play.
Public-private partnerships — or P3s, as they’re also called — bring together public agencies and private companies to launch critical improvements to transportation and energy systems. The United States has the largest potential market for P3s in the world. But for the time being, P3s are being implemented far more often in other countries, many of which now have infrastructure that has surpassed America’s in terms of overall quality. Continue reading →
As I’ve written here before, the small state of Connecticut is about to go belly-up after years of Democrat golden-goose misrule. And now, it looks like the state’s malevolent stewards have run out of geese to kill:
Gov. Malloy has spent two terms treating business as a bottomless well of cash to redistribute to public unions. Now that his state is losing millionaires and businesses, he has seen the light. But the price of his dereliction will be steep. Continue reading →
How did we get here at this existential crossroads? Ask the communist agitators, school indoctrinators, Hollywood, and community organizers whom parents entrust their children to every day
How did our society get where we are today? Where did this profound hatred, disrespect for authority, for the rule of law, disdain for their own country, utter laziness, entitlement, anarchy, and anti-Americanism come from, especially in the younger generations who shape the future of our country?
There is no simplistic answer. The default answer is always horrible parenting or lack thereof. Parents spend less and less time with their progeny as the government takes over their education at a very early age, or are in need of behavioral reeducation themselves. Older fathers with pony tails and mothers going through menopause are raising terror children who have never been spanked or made to behave like normal, rational human beings. They scream in restaurants and public places at hours when they should be in bed while the parents try to talk to them in a calm voice to the exasperation of everyone around them, trying to enjoy themselves while celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, interrupted by howling brats.

Hey Jerry – how many of those inmates are your illegal friends from out of the country? Your constituents should be asking? ~ J.B.
That’s enough to cover the annual cost of attending Harvard University and still have plenty left over for pizza and beer
Gov. Jerry Brown’s spending plan for the fiscal year that starts July 1 includes a record $11.4 billion for the corrections department while also predicting that there will be 11,500 fewer inmates in four years because voters in November approved earlier releases for many inmates.

Augusta, Maine school worker Toni Richardson, photo courtesy of First Liberty Institute.
A Maine school worker is afraid to express her faith or even to wear religious jewelry, out of concern that her school would fire her. She had told one of her coworkers, who attended the same church, that she would pray for him. While he thanked her at the time, he later seemed to use the event as ammunition to retaliate against her. A letter from her employer explicitly forbade any religious phrases on school property, even in private.
“Stating, ‘I will pray for you‘, and ‘you were in my prayers‘ is not acceptable – even if that other person attends the same church as you,” the school declared in a letter last September, threatening disciplinary action for any further religious “interaction” that would be “deemed unprofessional.” Continue reading →
In an age where the accounts of history are no longer taught or the chronicles of past generations are lost to the consciousness of the current culture; all that is left is a fairy tale of deception designed to confuse, indoctrinate and eliminate critical thinking. Astute students of the War of Northern Aggression understand that the cessation of hostilities set into motion the forces of imperialism and the perversion of a Constitution with the addition of harmful amendments. Liberty was the primary causality of all the bloodshed and the institution of a totalitarian statist regime became the permanent outcome of the conflict. (Continue Reading on Metropolis Café)
Robert Gehl reports Starbucks has been on the front line in the “culture wars,” often on the wrong side. But they’ve done good this time.
The omnipresent coffee chain is opening a chain of 37 “Military Family Stores,” staffed primarily by veterans and military spouses as a part of an effort to employ service members and their families.
In Clarksville, Tennessee, two miles from Fort Campbell, the first store opened as Shannon Feltz poured coffee for a group of veterans sitting at a table.
“Seventy-five percent of my business is the military,” 47-year-old Feltz, a 14-year military spouse whose husband is a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, told Fox News. “We are so excited about this announcement.”
A judge in Wisconsin voted in favor of the suspension of a Marquette University conservative professor who was asked to confess his guilt and apologize for his political views.
Here’s some background from a previous TruthRevolt report:
Because one of its professors defended a student’s view of traditional marriage against a leftist philosophy instructor deeming it homophobic, Marquette University has threatened the conservative professor’s job unless he confesses “guilt” for being “reckless” and causing “harm” to the offended instructor.

A Chinese Factory Slave Explains Why Manufacturing Jobs Are Never Coming Back To America No Matter What President Trump Says
“You get no job back!”
While we all loved President Trump’s campaign pledge to bring jobs back to America, there are powerful economic forces at work that suggest the shift to cheap labor is pretty much irreversible. Yes, Trump has spoken with the leaders of some of America’s biggest companies and he’s been successful at getting those chief executives to commit to creating or keeping a few thousands jobs here and there, but when you consider that the competing foreign labor force primarily responsible for manufacturing America’s consumer goods numbers in the hundreds of millions of people, the notion that we’re somehow going to see explosive manufacturing growth over the next four or eight years is nothing more than a pipe dream.

“… they simply see it as an opportunity to go out and get drunk on Mexican beer at reduced prices.”
Do joo see anee Mexican beer een thees peecture?
The Mexican holiday known as “Cinco de Mayo” is widely misconstrued in this country, even by people of Mexican descent. Other people do not seem to care about the origin and cultural significance of Cinco de Mayo, they simply see it as an opportunity to go out and get drunk on Mexican beer at reduced prices. Despite its commercialization, this holiday is of importance to many people. This writing will attempt to clarify the meaning of this holiday and return some significance to a day that has lost most of it to the advertisement industry of this country. Continue reading →
Detroit Is A Stark Reminder Peak America Was Over 50 Years Ago
Alastair Williamson tours the most dangerous neighborhoods in Detroit, Michigan armed with a drone, I-Phone7, and an Uber. He comes across crumbling neighborhoods, climate change protests, and a touching interview at the end. His overall thoughts include, “the end results of globalism has been detrimental to the area. The industry and neighborhoods left decades ago, and what’s left are the artifacts of a civilization from the ‘American High‘”. (Continue reading…)
Only those who have been existing under a rock are unaware of the integral destruction of Western Civilization and fundamental values that mark the last several decades. After the endless warnings and documentation provided by some of the most perceptive thinkers of the last several generations, society ignores and even condemns the factual record of this cultural path into oblivion. What has emerged is a disturbed mental insanity that demands total allegiance to a deranged political correctness. While it is evident that the genetic traits of the heinous descendants of Eve have formed the vanguard of this macabre authoritarian mindset, the decisive responsibility for allowing and furthering this spiteful temperament, rests upon the cowardly male gender that lost the courage to hold feminists accountable for their demented state of mind.
When a civilization abdicates the inherent reality of facts, the elimination of truth soon follows. The mass popular practice of establishing a singular purity of thought is promoted as having a savoir-faire that will root out old customs of conduct and replace it with a wholesomeness of adherence to a Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons society. How quaint, to watch the inane poppycock that purports to pass for social commentary in the decadent media. If your tolerance for such drivel has long ago hit the saturation point, it becomes imperative that confronting these debilitated schizoids and refuse to accept their validity as a thinking and balanced person.

To our complete ‘shock,’ a federal judge in San Francisco has just blocked Trump’s Executive Order intended to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.
U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling moments ago after San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. Continue reading →
The latest victim in University of California, Berkeley’s war against free speech: Ann Coulter. Yes, we all know that the Left views her as a succubus. Yes, we all know that she can be offensive to some people. And yes, she has the right to voice those opinions under the First Amendment, something that the Left seems to have forgotten. The irony is that UC Berkeley used to be a bastion of free speech. Now, it’s a stronghold for shutting down such constitutionally protected activities, specifically for those who happen to have a contrary opinion to the unhinged ethos of progressivism today. It’s a fortress of ill-liberalism. Bill Maher may not be a fan of Coulter politically, but he certainly is not one who supports this nonsense. On his show Real Time, he described the school as devolving from being a cradle for free speech into a “cradle for f**king babies.”Continue reading →
I’ve done what I could in this space to avoid the subject of Hillary Clinton. I don’t want to be the perennial turd in the punchbowl. I’d hoped we’d finally seen the last of that name in public life — it’s been a long quarter of a century — and that we could all move on. Alas, no. Her daughter (angels and ministers of grace defend us) seems to be positioning herself for a political career. And Clinton herself duly emerged last week for a fawning, rapturous reception at the Women in the World conference in New York City. It simply amazes me the hold this family still has on the Democratic Party — and on liberals in general. The most popular question that came from interviewer Nick Kristof’s social-media outreach, for example, was: “Are you doing okay?” Here’s Michelle Goldberg: “I find myself wondering at odd times of the day and night: How is Hillary? Is she going to be all right?” Seriously, can you imagine anyone wondering the same after Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis or John Kerry blew elections? Continue reading →
It appears that Obamacare is here to stay. Those doctors who grew up with the conditioning notion of utopian “social justice” love it. Those doctors who hate the government intrusion and regulation into their medical practice hate it. The American public is split as well along those lines.
Nobody really believed that Obamacare, deplorably named the Affordable Care Act, would be amended to benefit the wishes of the American people, much less repeal it. Once a bureaucracy has been ensconced and billions and billions of dollars have been spent and trillions earmarked to be spent in the future, it cannot be walked back. The welfare dependency mentality of half of the country will prevent that. Continue reading →
One of the most visible effects of Mr. Donald Trump’s presidency is that it has triggered an open resistance from the stealth forces that for last several decades now have been driving the theft of America. On one hand, the said resistance makes it more urgent to deal with the threat that the said forces pose to this nation, which adds to the already heavy burden of reversing decades of devastating damage inflicted by the Liberal demagogues, most notably, by the Obama administration, (formerly) embedded in the political branches of the U.S. government. On the other hand, it allows for a fairly accurate assessment of how deeply entrenched in the structures of political power, both at federal and state levels, they have been. I am not particularly easy to impress, but my jaw dropped when I saw the scope of the wide-spread plot of the hostile takeover of America as it recently unveiled itself in its entirety in front of eyes of mostly unsuspecting Americans.
To see the above plot from a better perspective, let’s start from some basic facts… Continue reading →
Close your eyes, click your heels three times, and tell me if you actually know what the fuck is happening in Syria. There’s an awful lot about the poison gas attack that doesn’t add up for the casual observer. It was only a week ago that the US enunciated a new policy that we would be content for Bashar al Assad to remain in power presiding over the Syrian government — after years of grousing and threats against him. Apparently Trump Central had concluded that Assad was a better alternative than another failed state in the Middle East with no government at all. Continue reading →
This is what the PUBLIC EDUCATION SEWER SYSTEM teaches those who are subjected to the (F)eduation Indoctrination system. It is why I am posting Dr. James Dobson column below. ~ Jackie Juntti
Dr. James Dobson Renowned pro-family advocate Dr. James Dobson is inciting Christian parents across the United States to pull their children from public schools and protect them from the progressive anti-Christian teaching by homeschooling them and putting in church-run schools.
The founder and president of Family Talk says he is “shocked” by the declining values held by the generation of young American adult voters (18 to 34-year-olds) – Millennials who have been promoting the immoral agenda they have learned over years and decades past … one that works to erode the Christian faith of today’s youth, according to a WND report.

No leader can reverse the dynamics of mutually reinforcing crises.
Charles Hugh Smith
Commentators seem split into three camps: those who see Trump as a manifestation of smouldering social/economic ills, those who see Trump and his supporters as the cause of those ills, and those who see Trump as both manifestation and cause of those ills.
I think this misses the point, which is the overlapping crises unfolding in this decade– diminishing returns on skyrocketing debts, the demographics of an aging populace, the erosion of the social contract and the profound disunity of political elites — will continue expanding and feeding on each other regardless of who is in power.
Historical analysis seems to swing between the “Big Man/Woman” narrative that views individuals as the drivers of history, and the “Big Forces/it’s all economics” narrative that sees individual leaders as secondary to the broad sweep of forces beyond the control of any individual or group.

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 →
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)
