@xychelsea’s pinned tweet explains everything wrong with America

Published

on

If it’s possible to capture the essence of everything wrong with America, the cultural cancer eating away at our colleges, government and moral foundations, Chelsea Manning has done it in under 140 characters.

Let us unpack that pit at the center of the rotting plum.

  • Manning is “honored” to be the first disinvited trans woman visiting Harvard fellow.

Harvard just decided to rid itself of all off-campus social organizations because they were too “male.” It would in fact be difficult to find a more transgender-friendly campus in America than Harvard. It was apparently less of an honor for Manning, who has no concept of honor, to be chosen as a token liberal transgender, than it was for her to be disinvited.

Remember, Manning received a dishonorable discharge from the U.S. Army after being tried and convicted of violating the Espionage Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and disobeying lawful general orders under Article 92 of the UCMJ. Private Bradley Manning is a disgraced, convicted felon and failed former soldier.

The concept of “honor” is overturned in one tweet.

  • They chill marginalized voices

Ben Shapiro’s speech at Berkeley cost $400,000 to keep Antifa from rioting and burning down the city. Who was marginalized?

As far back as 1978, liberal Harvard was gobsmacked and filled with consternation (even boos) at Alexander Solzhenitsyn‘s takedown of the liberal west. It’s not liberal voices who are marginalized at Harvard, it’s anyone who doesn’t walk completely in lockstep with their worldview.

The narrative of victimhood must live on in Manning’s tweet.

  • Under CIA pressure

Not in the least. Here it was the CIA who exposed Harvard’s dark smuggling of honor and endorsement upon a disgraced criminal. Douglas Elmendorf, Dean of Harvard Kennedy School, scrambled for cover in his mealy-mouthed statement withdrawing Manning’s fellowship.

We invited Chelsea Manning to spend a day at the Kennedy School. Specifically, we invited her to meet with students and others who are interested in talking with her, and then to give remarks in the Forum where the audience would have ample opportunity—as with all of our speakers—to ask hard questions and challenge what she has said and done. On that basis, we also named Chelsea Manning a Visiting Fellow. We did not intend to honor her in any way or to endorse any of her words or deeds, as we do not honor or endorse any Fellow.

This is total bovine excrement. Being offered a Harvard visiting fellowship is in itself an honor and endorsement. Twist it as you might, both the extension of the offer and its withdrawal have meaning.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo exposed Harvard’s honoring a criminal, and he was right to do so. Why should he share a title and a forum with someone who made his job exponentially harder by actively compromising U.S. intelligence?

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morrell also resigned in disgust after Harvard’s honoring her.

It wasn’t the CIA who pressured Harvard to dump Manning. It was Harvard that had to eat its own diseased words and divest the concept of “honor” in order to even justify its initial decision.

https://qz.com/1077906/former-deputy-cia-director-michael-morell-quits-at-harvards-kennedy-school-over-chelsea-mannings-hiring/In his letter of resignation, Morell says he cannot be part of an organization that “honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.” He called Manning’s hiring “wholly inappropriate,” stipulating however, that he “fully supports Ms. Manning’s rights as a transgender American, including the right to serve our country in the US military.”

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/09/15/551151607/harvard-withdraws-fellowship-invitation-to-chelsea-manning“Pompeo , who has a law degree from Harvard, said he didn’t make the decision lightly. He wrote that he would betray the trust of CIA employees if he appeared.”

“We are withdrawing the invitation to her to serve as a Visiting Fellow — and the perceived honor that it implies to some people — while maintaining the invitation for her to spend a day at the Kennedy School and speak in the Forum.

 

 

Chelsea Manning’s Harvard Fellowship Withdrawn After Criticism

Chase Strangio, a lawyer for Ms. Manning, wrote in a statement that the decision to withdraw the invitation “in the middle of the night without coherent explanation is disgraceful even for Harvard” and also accused the school of being beholden to the C.I.A.

“Ms. Manning betrayed her country,” Mr. Pompeo, who graduated from Harvard Law School, wrote in a letter to a Kennedy School official, adding that he commended Mr. Morell’s decision to resign.

Final thoughts

Chelsea Manning is no Alexander Solzhenitsyn. She did not suffer as a dissident at the hands of a repressive dictatorship. As Bradley Manning, he betrayed the uniform he wore, and the country he served. He was convicted and sentenced for his crimes. He was released only by the political correctness of Barack Obama in the last days of his term.

Mike Pompeo is a Harvard Law alum. He deserved the fellowship. He declined his own alma mater because what he believes in is more important than his personal honorifics.

There was no honor in Harvard’s invitation. There was no honor in Harvard’s disinvite. There is no honor in Manning’s outrage. There is no ring of truth in her cries of “victim!”

Everything that’s wrong with America right now can be seen in that one tweet. We better hope that they grow up.

Democrats own the caravan and every tragedy that comes from it

Democrats own the caravan and every tragedy that comes from it

The mass of humanity trekking towards our southern border is 100% the fault of the Democratic Party. It’s not just a handful of politicians or political activists who are causing this event and all tragedies that come as a result. Every leftist politician as well as anyone who voted for them is to blame.

This is not going to end well. Some will simply not be able to walk the entire 3000+ miles. Reports have already shown people getting carried or left behind after collapsing. There is no telling what is currently happening to women and children in the caravan; mainstream media conveniently only shows footage of happy faces. The physical and psychological effects of such a journey are harsh, but one can easily argue that the situation they were leaving was even harsher.

When they make it to the border, there will be a clash of some sort. Remember, these people who want to claim asylum are bypassing thousands of miles of safety in Mexico to get to the United States, so they will not be deterred easily. If border patrol, local police, or even the military attempt to stop them from illegally entering our country, there will be violence.

Assuming some or even most make it into the United States, the potential for more tragedies escalates. Kate Steinle. Ronald Da Silva. Sarah Root. Drew Rosenberg. Mollie Tibbetts. All of these tragic deaths could have been avoided if criminal illegal immigrants, including those from Honduras, could have been kept out of the country.

The caravans have swollen to over 5,000 people. If only 1% are dangerous (and it’s almost certainly a higher percentage than that), then that’s 50 additional criminal illegal immigrants poised to bring more tragedy to American citizens.

This is all on the Democrats. Here are three reasons why:

Invitational propaganda

Everything coming from the Democratic camps across the nation that is getting filtered to their proxies in Central America is a veiled invitation. That veil is lifting lately. Now it is blatant.

The message: “We will accept illegal immigrants and we will protect you from the Republicans.”

This isn’t just a play for votes from Hispanic citizens. This is a future play. The Democrats have known for decades if they’re able to help enough illegal immigrants enter the country and stay here, they will give birth to more Democrats. That’s not a conspiracy theory. This is well understood in quiet Democratic circles. It’s a generational play for power.

“Si se pudo!”

These words can be heard in chants across the caravan. It literally means “yes we could” and is eerily similar to the chants of “yes we can” heard at President Barack Obama’s rallies. This is not a coincidence.

Obama and the Democrats have been beacons of hope for illegal immigrants for over a decade. Adopting his chant as the symbol of their own plight should tell us all where they’re getting their inspiration.

Blocking the wall

If the border wall had been fully funded and in the process of being built, this caravan would never have formed. The Democrats aren’t the only ones to blame for this, of course, as Republicans have failed to use their majorities in the House and Senate to push through enough funding for the rapid building of the wall. Nevertheless, it’s the Democrats who have pushed back the hardest.

If even a few of them had accepted the wall and embraced the protections it gives to every American citizen, we wouldn’t be talking about the caravan today.

With election day two weeks away and early voting already started in most places, the caravan should act as a rallying cry for Republicans and Independents to keep as many Democrats as possible out of office.

Conspiracy Theory

Russian meddling is about dividing us, not helping Trump

Russian meddling is about dividing us not helping Trump

Russia is meddling with our elections. They’re meddling with our entire political system. They’re meddling in our culture, freedoms, and methods of communication. I once believed they were trying to help Donald Trump become President. Now I realize they are simply elements of chaos.

Today’s report of charges filed against a Russian agent working against American interests is striking for two reasons. First, the details they’ve been able to uncover about “Project Lakhta” are astounding. Second, their strategic goal was NOT to get one person or one party into office but to sow division among the American people regardless of their political ideology.

First charge filed against Russian for interfering with elections

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/19/first-charge-filed-russian-interfering-elections/“The strategic goal of this alleged conspiracy, which continues to this day, is to sow discord in the U.S. political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “This case demonstrates that federal law enforcement authorities will work aggressively to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of unlawful foreign influence activities whenever feasible, and that we will not stand by idly while foreign actors obstruct the lawful functions of our government. I want to thank the agents and prosecutors for their determined work on this case.”

Russia didn’t want Trump or Clinton to be President. They didn’t really care who won. All they wanted and continue to want is that no matter who wins any given election, the opposition will be so hateful about the loss that they’re willing to act out more aggressively than they otherwise would have normally.

It’s finally becoming clear that Russia’s plan is much more subverted and, frankly, ingenious than anything mainstream media or the Democrats could have ever fathomed.

They are taking advantage of our freedom of speech and the technology that allows that speech to reach the masses. They’re theory is that if they can get people on both sides of the political spectrum to voice their opinions with hate rather than understanding, it will spread. Those who have practiced thoughtful debate are now becoming raving ranters. Those who once argued their points thoughtfully are now becoming trolls.

Russia is not the only negative actor in this and the trends were already pointing to this divisiveness taking hold and spreading like a virus well before Project Lakhta was conceived, but they have definitely added to the cacophony and harnessed our vilest emotional responses to be used against us.

Their goal is to push as many people towards the fringes as possible. They want the far-left and the far-right to grow. They want debates to turn into arguments, then arguments to turn into blind rage. From there, they speculated that we would be the initiators of our own destruction.

They may be right.

From the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation debacle to the illegal immigration debate to anything that has to do with gun rights, Americans on both sides of the aisle are becoming more passionate. That’s leading many to become unhinged. When enough people are unhinged, any hopes of civil discourse can be forgotten. We are getting to the point where we no longer discuss our differences. We simply try to shout our perspectives louder than those opposed to us.

The left is the easier target. I’m not just saying that as a conservative. I say that because their position on issues make it easier for them to be emotional when news breaks about an event important to them. This is why those who blame racism for everything are not only seeing racism in every aspect of American life but are feeling justified in practicing their own versions of racism.

We now see that Russia’s goal wasn’t to get Trump elected. It was to make one side or the other absolutely hate the outcome regardless of who won. They aren’t pushing a political agenda. They’re pushing a cultural apocalypse.

As USC sex abuse scandal grows to 500 complaints, #MeToo fixates on the GOP

As USC sex abuse scandal grows to 500 complaints MeToo fixates on the GOP

The #MeToo movement was supposed to be about protecting and empowering women. Its origins were righteous and it delivered results. No, those origins weren’t with Alyssa Milano, though she’s become the face of the modern version of the movement. The original #MeToo movement started a decade ago. It wasn’t a hashtag. It advocated for victims.

Today’s #MeToo movement is one part women’s advocacy, nine parts political commentary against conservatives. The far left has appropriated the movement to no longer be about sexual misconduct by individuals. Instead, it’s about stopping Republicans in the upcoming election. But don’t take my word for it.

Milano, who helped bring Hollywood into the mix and did some great things a year ago to get the #MeToo movement ramped up for women, has tried to separate her #MeToo leadership role from her push for Democrats in the upcoming midterm election. These efforts have proven to be impossible. With the elections so close, she has leaned towards the latter. She hasn’t abandoned #MeToo by any means, but it’s clear her passion is for the political side of her agenda.

As such, the intermingling was inevitable even if it wasn’t intentional.

Here’s the problem. #MeToo needs her a heck of a lot more than the Democrats do. Political candidates have the resources and voice to get their message out. Milano’s reach is a drop in the bucket on the political front. For the #MeToo movement, her voice can actually make a difference, raise awareness, and inspire women to act.

Her desire to influence a few political races has drawn her away from a true calling that actually needs her voice.

You won’t see her talking about the massive USC sexual abuse incidents that have affected literally hundreds, perhaps thousands of impressionable women for decades.

Nearly 100 additional women sue USC over gynecologist’s alleged sexual misconduct

https://www.foxnews.com/us/nearly-100-additional-women-sue-usc-over-gynecologists-alleged-sexual-misconductMore than a dozen women appeared at a news conference Thursday to announce the new lawsuits on behalf of 93 women against the university, bringing the total number of accusations against Tyndall to about 500 current and former students.

“I am part of an accidental sisterhood of hundreds of women because the university we love betrayed our trust,” said Dana Loewy, who alleged that Dr. George Tyndall assaulted her during an examination in 1993.

Perhaps the worst part about Milano’s actions is that she willfully ignores abuse accusations made against Democrats. Why isn’t she calling for people to believe Sherrod Brown’s accuser? Where are the Tweets condemning Keith Ellison?

Why hasn’t she said a word about Katie Brennan?

Why isn’t Katie Brennan’s #MeToo accusation getting national attention?

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/15/isnt-katie-brennans-metoo-accusation-getting-national-attention/It’s the type of story that should have received national attention immediately. It was sourced by a respected major news outlet, the Wall Street Journal. Both the accuser and the accused are high-ranking public official in New Jersey’s government. The accused stepped down two weeks ago when approached by WSJ for comment. Katie Brennan’s story is a major newsworthy scandal.

As of Monday morning, a day after the story officially broke and four days after it was leaked to other major news outlets, both mainstream media and the #MeToo movement are essentially silent.

Being a good Democrat has taken Milano’s focus away from the #MeToo movement. She has helped turn it into a political tool at the expense of victims whose voices are not being heard. Sadly, politicians will use her while victims slip by silently.

Politicians have turned the #MeToo movement and Alyssa Milano into their proxies. They justify it by claiming they’ll be better for women in the long run. Sadly, the real movement is suffering because people like Milano bought their sales pitch.
