The Left hates Everything You Love & All That Makes Us Americans

left hates salvation army

The Left Hates the Salvation Army. That’s All You Need to Know About the Left

e all know some individuals who are so obviously good and kind that we are certain if anyone were to dislike them, that’s all we would need to know about the person. We would immediately assume he or she is a bad person. To hate the manifestly good is a sure sign of being bad.

Such is the case regarding the Left’s hatred of the Salvation Army. You don’t have to be a Christian—I am not—to appreciate the goodness of the people who run and work for the Salvation Army. They devote their lives to helping the poorest, the saddest, the loneliest and the most troubled among us—completely irrespective of race, gender, transgender identity, faith or no faith. And they do it for almost no money. They do it because of their Christian faith.

They provide these downtrodden people with not only food and shelter but also human warmth and love. And they offer the people they care for the one thing most likely to get them out of their predicament: meaning. They offer it; they do not coerce it. And while the vehicle for this meaning—Christian faith—may not be your faith or mine, so what? It takes a truly narrow-minded bigot to want to deprive people of meaning just because that meaning is rooted in faith or in a faith other than their own.

Yet, leftists—most especially LGBTQ groups, which spread a remarkable amount of hate in the name of “love”—seek to crush the Salvation Army. They threaten and pressure whoever supports the Salvation Army.

“British pop singer Ellie Goulding,” the Wall Street Journal recently reported, “threatened to cancel an appearance at the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving halftime show, which will celebrate the army’s red-kettle campaign, unless it made a ‘pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community.’ She backed down after the Salvation Army assured her it serves needy members of that community.”

Most depressing of all, Chick-fil-A, a business owned by a Christian and heretofore run according to Christian principles, caved in to LGBTQ organizations’ pressure and stopped funding the Salvation Army, while it has also donated to a left-wing group that hates the good, the Southern Poverty Law Center.

I never thought I’d see the day when the Salvation Army would be hated by a substantial number of Americans or lose the support of a Christian-run business.

But given the Left’s loathing of virtually all things good—such as America, Israel, traditional Christianity and Judaism, the Boy Scouts, the nuclear-family ideal, Thanksgiving and America’s Founders—it is not surprising.

As I have said for years, the Left destroys everything it touches: music, art, Christianity, Judaism, economies, universities, high schools, late-night comedy, pro football, women’s likelihood of finding happiness, men’s likelihood of maturing, the Boy Scouts and the innocence of children (think “Drag Queen Story Hour” for 5-year-olds at public libraries), to cite some of the more obvious examples.

And while it destroys good institutions, the Left never builds a viable replacement. Is there a left-wing equivalent to the Boy Scouts, a left-wing institution that helps mold boys into responsible men? Of course not. The Left destroys, but it builds nothing—except state power. Or, to take the present example, is there a left-wing equivalent to the Salvation Army? No, there isn’t.

“We believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population,” the Salvation Army said in a statement after Chick-fil-A announced its decision. As the Wall Street Journal concluded, “Considering it serves nearly 25 million people every year, that’s likely true.”

But all the good the Salvation Army does means nothing to the Left. The Left judges people or institutions not by their behavior but by their beliefs. And the Salvation Army believes—as has every civilization in recorded history, and as former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton did until a few years ago—that marriage should be defined as the union of a man and a woman. To the Left, that belief outweighs helping 25 million people, including married gays.

One of the great puzzles in contemporary American life is whether there is anything

 the Left could do to make Americans understand how destructive it is. If suppressing free speech at colleges and on the internet, fomenting interracial anger, supporting those who wish to annihilate Israel, allowing (and even encouraging) teenage girls to have their healthy breasts surgically removed if they think they are a boy and trying to crush the Salvation Army don’t do it, probably nothing will.

Schiff Should Be Forced To Resign After Role In Whistleblower Complaint Becomes Known

Adam schiff gets rudy gulianis phone calls illegally

Adam Schiff illegally subpoenaed call logs of Giuliani and Devin Nunes in fake impeachment hearing conservatives voice outrage

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said cell phone records obtained by impeachment investigators show “considerable coordination” among White House officials who Democrats believe tried to bribe Ukraine government officials into investigating Joe Biden and Democrats.

A 300-page impeachment report issued Tuesday afternoon includes records of calls between President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and White House officials.

The article goes on to state the following:

Schiff said the calls mirrored the impeachment inquiry’s determination that the Trump administration coordinated to bribe Ukraine into investigating Trump’s political opponents by dangling $391 million in security aid.

AT&T likely reportedly provided the cell phone records under subpoena, the article states.

Schiff declared there is more investigative work ahead. “One of the issues we are looking into is, did this scheme begin far earlier than we understood. That is something we continue to investigate, and that is something these phone records also shed light on,” he said.

Records about several private calls between Giuliani and Rep. Devin Nunes in April are included in the report.

Conservatives are responding in outrage, asking if this is even legal for Schiff to obtain phone records.

Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA tweeted, “Adam Schiff obtained Rudy Giuliani’s phone records from AT&T. Since an Impeachment Inquiry isn’t a Criminal Investigation was this Legal? If this is Legal, why havent Republicans requested Schiff & his staff’s records to find out about his communications with the Whistleblower?”

Schiff said at the press briefing Tuesday afternoon, “I’m going to continue to reserve judgement” on impeachment. “We will send that charlatan in the White House back to the golden throne he came from,” he declared.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) relied on the mainstream Marxist media to carry his water for him. He must’ve missed (or dismissed) the poll that revealed voters are madder at the media than they are at President Trump. By a wide margin.

You can be sure the editors at the, IMHO, increasingly discredited major media outlets didn’t miss that poll that shows 61% are disgusted with their biased coverage.

Schiff foolishly trusted that whatever he represented to the media would be repeated without question. And, while the media largely supported his lies, someone at the NY Times either didn’t receive the memo (speculation/joke) or decided that printing the truth had become more important to their long-term credibility.

Why DID SCHIFF lie about having contact with the “whistleblower?”

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Ranking Member of the HouseIntelligence Committee conclude that, “In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce.”

I do not see how Schiff gets out of this one still standing. I see a resignation in his future. Time will tell.

California GOP signs onto recall campaigns against Governor Gavin Newsom

It’s about Time! We needed this support to bring this effort home

The California Republican Party is endorsing two long-shot efforts to force Gov. Gavin Newsom out of office, but won’t throw its money behind the proposals.

Jessica Patterson, chairwoman of the CA GOP, on Monday verified a fundraising email the state party sent to its supporters on Saturday highlighting its board of directors’ vote to “support both current efforts to recall Governor Gavin Newsom.”

The endorsement reflects enthusiasm among a vocal base of Republicans who want to oust Newsom less than a year since he took office, and it gives more attention to a pair of recall efforts carried by former Southern California GOP congressional candidates.

The two committees leading the effort to recall Newsom have reported raising nearly $53,000, according to filings made with the Secretary of State’s Office. Republican congressional candidate Erin Cruz raised $5,000 through her RAN Action Fund, while San Diego physician James Veltmeyer raised nearly $48,000 through his “Californians to Recall Gavin Newsom” coalition. Veltmeyer is also a former Republican congressional candidate.

In a November interview with One American News, a right-wing television channel, Cruz said she launched the proposal in an effort to get California “back on track” because Newsom “has been running this state into the ground.”

On his website, Veltmeyer says he wants Newsom out of office because of the state’s tax policy, handling of homelessness and expanded protections for people who unlawfully entered the country.

Despite the lack of party funding into the effort of Cruz and Veltmeyer, Patterson insists she’s fully supportive of their calls for Newsom’s removal.

She believes the state has experienced “third world problems” under Newsom’s leadership, including a string of power shutoffs from PG&E, widespread homelessness and an affordability crisis with high costs for housing and transportation.

“There’s a huge amount of support for it,” Patterson said of the petitions calling for Newsom’s ouster. “Don’t get me wrong. I do know that this is an uphill battle, but it gives us an opportunity to connect with voters right now. People are fired up. People are angry about the arrogance and overreach of California Democrats. Every single chance that the governor has the opportunity to do the right thing, he chooses not to.”

The state GOP’s Vice Chairman Peter Kuo and Treasurer Gregory Gandrud urged the party to endorse the recalls at the board’s Nov. 16 meeting and the 21-member body approved it. The party declined to share details about the voting breakdown, as it considers itself a private organization.

Support for Newsom has dropped among likely California voters since he took office in January.

Testimony in Fla court reportedly alleges Ilhan Omar works as ‘Qatari asset’, TIME FOR HER 2 GO!

Rep. Ilhan Omar was accused of being recruited by a foreign government in testimony presented in a Florida court.

The Minnesota Democrat was allegedly recruited and funded by Qatar and “passed sensitive information through intermediates to Iran,” according to a report in The Jerusalem Post which has sparked a debate about the credibility of the information.

A spokesperson for Omar, a Somali refugee and one of the first two Muslims – along with Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan –  to be elected to Congress, slammed the “outlandishly absurd story” as false. But the testimony was reportedly given in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani, a brother of the Qatari emir, who is accused of holding an American citizen hostage and ordering his bodyguard to kill two people.

The deposition by Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was born in Kuwait, was obtained by Al Arabiya English, and authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Bender told the Florida District Court in testimony via a video link from Toronto that he had met with two senior Qatari officials along with Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad, Qatar’s Secretary to the BEmir for Security Affairs.

“If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends,” the men allegedly told him, Bender testified.

He also noted that he refused a request by the men to recruit American politicians and journalists as Qatari assets, telling the court that Omar was described as the “jewel in the crown” by the officials who also revealed that other prominent figures were already recruited.

Qatar “recruited Ilhan Omar from even way before she thought about becoming a government official… They groomed her and arranged the foundation, the grounds, for her to get into politics way before she even showed interest. They convinced her,” Bender testified.

Omar allegedly swore allegiance to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after a 2017 meeting when she was serving as a junior state representative in Minnesota, Bender reportedly told the court. The congresswoman, who has been a vocal critic of Israel, also allegedly passed information to Qatar which ended up being passed on to Iran. Omar came under scrutiny last month when she became the only House Democrat to vote against imposing sanctions against Turkey.

According to the Post’s report on Bender’s testimony, Omar was “actively involved in recruiting other American politicians to likewise work for the west Asian Islamic country.”

“The best thing money can buy is American officials, because they are the cheapest of the cheapest-costing officials in the world,” the officials from Qatar reportedly told Bender.

Omar’s spokesperson blasted the report as the latest example of “misinformation and conspiracy theories” aimed at the Minnesota lawmaker who, along with Tlaib, and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, make up the group of four first-term, progressive Democratic congresswomen dubbed “The Squad.”

“Since the day she was elected, Saudi Arabian trolls and mouthpieces have targeted Omar with misinformation and conspiracy theories,” the spokesperson said in a statement to The Jerusalem Post.

“The latest, outlandishly absurd story from a Saudi-funded media outlet is of course false and only the latest in that trend,” the statement continued. “The only people Rep. Omar represents in Washington are the people of Minnesota’s 5th District. She will continue to speak out against human rights violations around the world – whether it is war crimes in Yemen or the caging of children at our border – regardless of who commits them.”

Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, the self-declared “Imam of Peace,” has previously warned that Omar is an agent for Qatar and took to Twitter to announce he is “directly involved in the Ilhan-Qatar scandal as a victim of Qatar’s plots and malicious lawsuits; and my name is mentioned all over the Federal US legal deposition.

As speculation abounded on Twitter about whether the report, which was apparently not being reported by the major media, was even credible, the imam continued to post messages, including his claim that the Qatari government hired a lawyer to “demand that Twitter delete my tweets and suspend me for exposing their dirty deals in Congress and the mainstream media.”

The Clarion Project, which describes itself as “a non-profit organization that educates the public about the dangers of radical Islam and other extremist ideologies,” dug into the many parts of the spreading story and determined that the evidence against Omar, in this case, is “flimsy.”

Others, like foreign policy and national security reporter Jordan Schachtel, threw cold water on the quickly spreading story about Omar, who was recently found guilty by the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board of breaking campaign finance rules.

‘Coup has started,’ whistleblower’s attorney said in 2017 on Twitter of President Trump’s Impeachment!

DNC Coup against President Trump starting in 2016

One of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”

July 2017, Zaid remarked, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Also that month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.”

Coup against Trump and Impeachment

Amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that “as one falls, two more will take their place,” apparently referring to Trump administration employees who defy the White House. Zaid promised that the “coup” would occur in “many steps.”

The tweets, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint is tainted with partisanship. Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader, which is the subject of the complaint, occurred in July 2019.

“The whistleblower’s lawyer gave away the game,” the Trump campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, told Fox News. “It was always the Democrats’ plan to stage a coup and impeach President Trump and all they ever needed was the right scheme. They whiffed on Mueller so now they’ve settled on the perfectly fine Ukraine phone call. This proves this was orchestrated from the beginning.”

Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats and partisans in the intelligence community of effectively plotting a coup against him, through selective leaks and lengthy investigations.

“45 years from now we might be recalling stories regarding the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump. I’ll be old, but will be worth the wait,” Zaid wrote in June 2017.

He emphasized his interest in impeachment in a variety of other posts.

“Johnson (1868), Nixon (1973), Clinton (1998) impeachment hearings. Next up @realDonaldTrump (2017),” he said in May.

Fox News has previously reported on social media posts by Zaid that highlighted what appeared to be open animus toward the president.

Although Zaid described Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as a “mature professional,” and circulated articles that touted the reliability of the largely discredited Steele dossier used by the FBI to surveil a former member of Trump’s campaign, Zaid has repeatedly unloaded on the president in no uncertain terms.

“I’m not a Trump fan,” Zaid said on a podcast last year. “I go out of my way on Twitter to say ‘#Resistance.’ It’s not a resistance against the GOP or a Republican — I don’t think [Trump] is a Republican, quite frankly.” (Zaid also boasted that he has sued “every” president since 1993, and pursues “them all,” regardless of party affiliation.)

Also in the podcast, Zaid acknowledged that he had been fishing for plaintiffs to launch a lawsuit concerning the Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., alleging unfair competition by the president and his associates.

“The unfair competition becomes, when Donald Trump became president, he has exploited his use of the presidency, of the Oval Office. … to send business to the hotel. … We identified this as a cause of action, and we were looking for a plaintiff, and we finally found this one restaurant that was willing,” Zaid admitted. A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit last year.

Zaid also had something of an open casting call for whistleblowers on Twitter as Trump took office, writing that CIA employees should “come to” his law firm “to lawfully challenge” the new president.

Zaid publicly requested that celebrities Debra Messing, Nancy Sinatra, Cher and Rob Reiner help promote his whistleblower law firm.

“@cher please check out our new whistleblower page,” Zaid wrote in one tweet, which garnered no response from the famed singer.

In February, Zaid escalated his pitch to Reiner, asserting that “we have a chance to depose” Trump in court. At one point last year, Zaid even pitched his services to Michael Avenatti, after the now-embattled attorney mentioned that he was “now representing whistleblowers within ICE.”

Another of the whistleblower’s attorneys, Andrew Bakaj, tweeted in August 2017 that Trump should be removed under the 25th Amendment, which applies to incapacitated presidents.

The posts have surfaced as Republicans demand that the anonymous whistleblower come forward and testify. On Sunday, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, rejected an offer from Zaid for the whistleblower to anonymously provide written answers to GOP questions.

“Written answers will not provide a sufficient opportunity to probe all the relevant facts and cross-examine the so-called whistleblower,” Jordan said. “You don’t get to ignite an impeachment effort and never account for your actions and role in orchestrating it.”

Zaid acknowledged in a statement in October that his client “has come into contact with presidential candidates from both parties” — but insisted that the contact involved the politicians’ roles as “elected officials – not as candidates.”

His abrupt disclosure came shortly after The Washington Examiner reported that Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson told lawmakers the whistleblower worked “or had some type of professional relationship” with one of the Democratic presidential candidates, citing three sources familiar with Atkinson’s interview with lawmakers last month.

Zaid and the other whistleblower attorneys did assert that the whistleblower “has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign or party” — leaving open the possibility that the whistleblower did advise a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate prior to his or her run for office.

“The whistleblower is not the story,” the attorneys said. “To date, virtually every substantive allegation has been confirmed by other sources. For that reason, the identity of the whistleblower is irrelevant.”

But Republicans have challenged that claim, noting that various statements in the whistleblower claim have seemingly proved inaccurate. For example, the whistleblower complaint stated that Trump made a “specific request that the Ukrainian leader locate and turn over servers used by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and examined by the U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike” — a request that does not appear in the declassified transcript of the call released by the Trump administration. Trump mentioned CrowdStrike, but did not demand the server.

Meanwhile, Democrats on Wednesday released a transcript of testimony from U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor in which he claimed to have a “clear understanding” that  Trump wanted to leverage military aid to Ukraine in return for investigations that could benefit him politically — while acknowledging he didn’t have firsthand knowledge of “what was in the president’s mind.”

“That was my clear understanding, security assistance money would not come until the President [of Ukraine] committed to pursue the investigation,” Taylor said.


Taylor is a top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine who has emerged as a key figure of interest in the Trump impeachment inquiry, having alleged a quid pro quo was at play despite White House denials.

The transcript shows that Taylor testified he had been told by other officials that the White House was willing to hold up both military aid and a prospective White House meeting with Ukraine’s president to extract a public announcement from Kiev that probes related to election interference and a company linked to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son were underway.

“Coup has started. … We will get rid of him.”—

Whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid, in 2017

“That’s what Ambassador Sondland said,”

Taylor said, referring to E.U. ambassador Gordon Sondland. “He said that they were linked. They were linked.”

But Republicans have countered that Taylor did not have primary knowledge regarding the key events in question, but rather based his testimony off conversations with others.

In one exchange between GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin and Taylor during his deposition, Taylor was asked whether he had any firsthand knowledge of Trump conditioning an investigation into the 2016 election and the Bidens on military aid.

Taylor said he did not speak to the president, or have any direct communication with the president regarding the requests for investigations. Instead, he said he was basing much of his testimony on what former United States Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker and Sondland told him.
