explained by California  Democratic Mayor


Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War. During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.


By the Democratic Mayor of Livermore, California.

Trump vs EstablishmentThe mayor of Livermore, California explains Trump’s popularity and success. This is perhaps the best explanation for Trump’s popularity.

Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA. He ran on the democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican. He is as conservative as they come.

He wrote the following:

Trump’s ‘lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship’

By Marshall Kamena, Mayor of Livermore, CA.

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Trump calls me AmericanHere’s my answer:

  • We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.
  • We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?
  • We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob. 


  • I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.
  • I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.
  • I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”


Trump: US a Christian nationThe Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.


With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.

Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War. During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.


Ulysses Grant

Ulysses S. GrantUlysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.


Lincoln Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”


General George Patton

George PattonGeneral George Patton was vulgar-talking. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.

That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump exposes Fake News

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Comically Incorrect  for his great cartoon

First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri —

Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”

Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position … They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

trump-weather-stormThe problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

America First, still

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?

Of course I do. These aren’t those times. Trump-PatriotThis is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.


 I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!


Truth about DACA: Illegal Alien Crime Victims, and 14 DACA Facts the Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You

Truth about DACA:

Media Lies

14 DACA Facts the Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You

DACA Meaning: Applying Emotional Blackmail to YOU

I have an idea, a little test. And I’m serious. I know a lot of you in this audience are young people, you are Millennials, some of you are college students.

Why don’t each of you take in a bunch of new roommates and provide them everything they want and need. You do it under the idea of fairness, under the idea that you may have more, you may have less, but you should do it. If free money, universal income, guaranteed welfare, unending health care, if this is the answer, you do it. Do a little test lab. Provide it for your roommates and see how it works and get back to us. Tell us how it works out. ~Rush Limbaugh


14 Things the Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You About DACA

John Nolte

All we are seeing from our establishment media is the usual-usual propaganda: flat-out lies,  half truths, the ignoring of vital pieces of information and points of view, and most of all, emotional blackmail.

Whenever a Republican wants to move forward — you know, pass some legislation or even enforce the law as already written, they always, always, ALWAYS have to run through a mainstream media propaganda gauntlet dedicated to the status quo, loyal only to the Democrat cause and by extension opposed to anything resembling progress.

Then there is illegal immigration, which, like abortion, the Mainstream Media treats as its own personal sacrament.  Flooding America, primarily Red States, with illegal Democrats who also serve the interests of a Big Business Complex desperate to keep wages low and unions non-existent, there is nothing our corrupt media will not do to keep that illegal flood flooding.

Emotional Blackmail

These revolutionists are using a technique that is as old as the human race—a fervid but false solicitude for the unfortunate over whom they thus gain mastery, and then enslave them. ~David O. McKay

And so, as President Trump prepares to keep one of his biggest promises and end President Barry’s un-constitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program, all we are seeing from our establishment media is the usual-usual propaganda: flat-out lies,  half truths, the ignoring of vital pieces of information and points of view, and most of all, emotional blackmail.

If your only understanding of this complicated issue comes from the Mainstream Media, hopefully the list below will offer some clarity and context. The first point, I think, is the most important.

1. This Is Only the Fault of the Parents

My wife was born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and came to America as a small child. But she was brought here by her parents legally and remained here legally until she obtained her citizenship, something she prizes above most everything else. This is how immigration is supposed to work. If you ask my wife about DACA, she blames the parents of these children who, unlike her own parents,  broke the law and put their children in this situation.

If your parents don’t pay the rent, is it the landlord’s fault when you are evicted, or is it the fault of your parents?

If your parents sneak you into Disneyland without paying, is it Disney’s fault when you are booted out, or is it the fault of your parents?

If your parents sneak you into a country illegally, is it the country’s fault when you get deported, or is it the fault of your parents?

Blaming America or Trump or anyone other than the parents for any of this, is a ruse, a con, a rhetorical trick.

2. DACA Recipients Are Illegal Aliens

This simple fact has been so downplayed and memory-holed, it just needed to be spoken out loud.

3. DACA Is a Massive Amnesty Program

Although the DREAMers are in the country illegally, DACA allows some 800,000 to stay in the country legally without any kind of penalty. Qualified DREAMers are not only given a two-year deferment from deportation, they are eligible for a work permit, which means they can legally take a job in America.

4. DACA Recipients Are Not the Children

DACA is eligible only to those aged 15-32.

A very large percentage of DACA recipients are adults, not children or even minors.

5. DACA Recipients Take Jobs Americans WILL Do

The idea that illegal aliens take jobs Americans won’t do is, of course, a lie. Plenty of Americans, most especially young Americans, would love the opportunity to work on a construction site or some other manual labor job. Moreover, if the wages were better, plenty of American would be willing to work in the fields. An untold number of young Americans who live in farm communities already do. But when you flood the country with illegal and/or foreign workers this — by design — suppresses wages to a point where only those willing to be exploited are willing to do this work for almost no money.

Nevertheless, even this lie does not apply to DREAMers, many of whom have a high school diploma or a GED, and a work permit. These are not field workers, these are hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens competing for the same jobs against the 4 million young Americans who enter the workforce every year.

6. Some DACA Recipients are Criminals

Over 5 years, between 2013 and 2017, a total of 2,139 DACA recipients lost their amnesty benefits “due to criminality or gang affiliated concerns.”

The DACA screening process is in reality a joke, a rubber stamp.


7. DACA Is Not a Law, It Is the Violation of Law

President Obama’s DACA program is not a law or even a policy. Rather, it is a brazen violation of the immigration law as written and passed by the American people’s representatives in congress.

People in the country illegally are supposed to be deported and repatriated into their own country. That is the law here in America. That is the law in every country in the world, including Mexico.

8. Most DACA Recipients are Not Overachievers

It seems as though every time we see a DACA recipient in the media, he or she is the next Albert Einstein, someone on the verge of curing cancer and poverty.

The reality is actually quite different:

While there are some true-life scholars in the DACA program, these are not a representative sample:

For example, one-third of the people in the study sample who are older than age 25 hold four-year college bachelors’ degrees or better. In contrast, an August 2013 report by the pro-amnesty Migration Policy Institute showed that only 7.5 percent of the 800,000 DACA-qualified illegals who were 18 or older had four-year college degrees or better. An August 2017 study by the MPI showed only 5 percent of 832,000 DACA illegals who were older than 18 had four-year college qualifications.

Also, the 7.5 percent graduation rate reported by the new study is roughly one-quarter the 33 percent of native-born Americans with four-year degrees.

9. DACA Is Wildly Unfair to Americans, Most Especially Young Americans Just Starting Out

You followed the rules. Your parents obeyed the law. You are one of the 4 million Americans ready to enter the workforce every year, eager to begin your own life, to pursue the American dream, but you have to compete against hundreds of thousands of line-jumpers for the same entry-level job.

Moreover, this flood of labor depresses your wages.

10. DACA Was Already Litigated and Debated in 2016

The American people have already had the DACA debate. Hillary Clinton promised to expand DACA. Trump promised to end DACA.

Trump won.

11. DACA Encourages More Illegal Immigrants

Although DACA does not officially grant amnesty to the children of illegal immigrants who have arrived after 2007, the message is still clear: America does not have the will to enforce its own immigration laws. Of course that message works as a magnet for illegals.  If you recall

Obama declared his DACA amnesty in 2012. Central Americans saw the announcement, read the details — and roughly 400,000 people headed north during the next four years.

Moreover, making that trek is dangerous, especially from South America. People die of exposure and are exploited, sometimes sexually, by the Coyotes they hire to lead them here.

Illegal immigration is a lose-lose for everyone but Democrats who desire the votes and business owners who do not want to pay a legal resident a fair market wage.

12. In Most States, DACA Recipients are Eligible for Welfare Benefits


Once DACA applicants are approved and receive a temporary employment authorization card, they can apply for a Social Security Number. Under this number, they can report wages and pay taxes.

DACA beneficiaries cannot receive federal benefits such as welfare and food stamps. Some states allow for state-funded benefits, but Arizona specifically prohibits it.

13. Unless It Is Stopped, DACA Will Never Stop Growing

Every year, more and more illegal aliens become eligible for DACA’s illegal and unconstitutional amnesty program.

Obama’s deputies low-balled his election-campaign giveaway by initially predicting it would only reach about 560,000 younger illegals who were supposedly brought into the United States by their parents before they turned 16.

But the amnesty has already provided almost 900,000 work-permits and Social Security cards to illegals who say they are aged 36 or less. More than 92 percent of the applicants got their DACA approvals, with a rejection rate of only 7 percent. The amnesty is expected to rise above 1.9 million people as additional younger illegals become adults and try to enroll in Obama’s giveaway.

14. DACA Ignores Some Criminal Behavior

Center for Immigration Studies:

DACA applies to individuals up to age 31 (as of June 2012, so 35 now) — hardly children; consequently, many Dreamers have long-since terminated their studies and most have committed multiple felonies in order to get jobs — Social Security fraud, forgery, perjury on I-9 forms, falsification of green cards and drivers’ licenses, identity theft, etc. Dreamers continue to commit these job-related crimes right up to the day their DACA status is approved and they obtain work permits and their own genuine Social Security numbers.

In addition, many illegal aliens qualifying for DACA status have previously been arrested and convicted of multiple misdemeanors and some have previously been or continue to be associated with violent gangs, as evidenced by a report in the Seattle Times that states that over 1,500 Dreamers have had their DACA status revoked since 2012 due to their involvement with criminal gangs.

On the true merits, the DACA debate is a loser for the Left and their media — which is why the 14 facts above must remain largely unspoken.

Climate Hoax and Bias in Media

Al Jazeera Buys Algore’s Hoax Machine

Dinner Topics for Monday

Rush Limbaugh

 So Al Gore is going to end up, already has, offered considerable assistance to a bunch of people he’s gotten rich by condemning.

GoreWizardofOzRUSH: Now, as you know, Algore has sold his TV network, Current TV, to Al Jazeera.  A couple things about this.  Yesterday morning, the staff, the still shell-shocked staff at Current TV, was called to an all-hands staff meeting at their headquarters in San Francisco, and that meeting was teleconferenced to their offices in Los Angeles and New York City, where the staff at Algore’s network could meet their new bosses from Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera sent two of its top guys, Ehab Al Shihabi, the executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, the general manager of the London bureau of Al Jazeera.  Algore was not there.  His partner, Joel Hyatt, was.  Joel Hyatt, just so you know, is the son-in-law of the late senator from Ohio, Howard Metzenbaum.  And the story in the New York Post about this is about how the staffers at Algore’s network were not happy.  They’re disillusioned.  They can’t believe that Algore would sell the network to Al Jazeera.  They can’t believe they’re working for Al Jazeera. 

Al Jazeera, now, stop and think about this, by the way.  Al Jazeera was made possible by oil money.  It’s owned by the emir of Qatar.  And Qatar has money for one reason — oil — which Algore hates, at least publicly.  Algore is almost, from what I’m told, almost a billionaire based simply on his positions on global warming.  He has monetized a fraudulent, hoax position on global warming to the tune of nearly a billion dollars.

There is no way Al Jazeera or anybody else would pay $500 million for a network that nobody watches.  And yet they did.  And there’s a reason why they did.  By the way, at this staff meeting, Jennifer Granholm, who, you know, I wondered the other day if Jennifer Granholm and Joy Behar, who also has a show there, are now gonna be made to wear burqas and what impact that might have on audience ratings.  If Granholm and Behar wear burqas, it might improve ratings.  But former Vice President Algore has almost called for terrorism against oil companies.  This is no small thing, folks.

Look at it this way.  Think about it this way.  If you were going to sell yourself for millions of dollars to a movement that has as its goal to infiltrate and overcome the United States of America, who better than Algore to partner with?  If you’re Algore and you have value, here is a way to demonstrate it.  Look at what’s happening, folks, in our country.  We’re currently using light bulbs, compact fluorescent light bulbs that are filled with mercury.  They have now been found to cause skin cell death and cancer and of course there’s the hazmat danger.

If one of these things breaks in your home you’ve got to call hazmat people to come and have it removed.  There’s no reason that we should have compact fluorescents mandated. There’s no reason to ban the incandescent light bulb other than the political pressure brought to bear by the advancement of a hoax issue, i.e. global warming, saving the planet, saving the climate.

Algore has succeeded in profound ways in furthering this hoax.

Look at all he succeeded at doing! We have been forced into these crappy light bulbs. We have been forced into a number of lifestyle choices, and there will be more coming.  We are forced into manufacturing and buying automobiles nobody wants under the false premise that we’re destroying the planet and these new light bulbs and cars will save the planet. We are being forced into accepting higher taxes, bigger government.

Because we must pay the price for our extravagant lifestyles which have led to the death of the polar bear and the destruction of the climate.  We’re forced into all of these laws by our elected officials, passed after being lobbied by environmentalist wackos.  That image of a lost polar bear floating on the last remaining piece of ice on earth, which was the message behind that picture? All of this fraud is based on a made-up hoax, global warming, climate change, and sold to us by Algore who’s become almost a billionaire in the process.

He has been a relentless advocate and promoter of this thoroughly disprovable concept of manmade climate change and global warming.  So if you pull yourself away from it, you have to say, in an objective way, he’s done a hell of a job promoting this hoax that he believes in.  He’s done one hell of a job making it accepted.  He’s done one hell of a job convincing entire governments and populations that his hoax is real.

If he’s that effective for the environmentalist wackos at spreading countless numbers of lies, you gotta think that Al Jazeera has gotta be asking themselves, “What could this guy do for us?” And so, they’re thrilled to pay him $500 million for a network that nobody watches.  You might say it’s a brilliant move on their part business-wise.  Look who they’ve got as a lobbyist now! Look at how effective he is, and look at the credibility he still has projecting a hoax.

Algore has accepted money from an industry, a nation state and industry that he tells everybody else needs to be shut down.  And what did he sell them?

He sold them a propaganda arm!

He sold them a cable network that does reach 70% or 80% of the eyeballs in this country.  So he took oil money.  Anybody think that that’s not on the up and up?  Why would Algore want to have anything to do with Big Oil?  He hates ’em.  They’re the reason that we are threatened.  They are the reason that we’re endangered.  They’re the ones that have been lying to us.  They’ve been the polluters! I think the reason they bought him is because he’s obviously good at spreading propaganda.

Al Jazeera obviously has a worldview.  Al Jazeera, like any other news network, would love to be able to persuade everybody that watches it to agree with their worldview.  Their worldview is not one friendly to us as a country rooted in Western Civilization.  Al Jazeera doesn’t have much to say about Western Civilization that’s good.  And yet they partner with Algore, who supposedly hates oil.

So he gets even richer, gives them a propaganda arm, and remains involved perhaps as a consultant.  And then Jennifer Granholm? What’s funny about this staff meeting is Jennifer Granholm asked about severance packages for people like her who are quitting. And Joel Hyatt, Algore’s partner, told her to shut up.  “We’re not talking about the at this meeting!  Bring it up later.”  Total, total, disrespect.

But that’s not what I was talking about.  My whole monologue on this has to do with the fact that Algore has demonstrated himself to be a class AAA propagandist.  Al Jazeera has a vested interest in the part of the world they represent triumphing.  That is undeniable.  They’ve hired a guy, they bought a guy who will now become a lobbyist for them to help expand their footprint or their influence.

Now, here’s Algore, who has made his name post-politics as being anti-oil, anti-fossil fuels, anti-conventional energy who just got in bed with conventional energy.  He just got in bed with oil wells.  He has gotten rich condemning them, and yet he’s now taking their money to further enhance his own wealth and to help them expand their footprint, whatever their footprint is, whatever it ends up being.

Now, all I’m trying to do is explain, you know, because people said why would they pay $500 million for a network nobody watches?  That’s not what they were buying.  They were buying distribution of this network. They’re buying an opportunity to program it the way they want, and they’re buying Algore as a means of helping them.  So Algore is going to end up, already has, offered considerable assistance to a bunch of people he’s gotten rich condemning, is my only point.
