It is no coincidence that the Sword, Sorcery and Dragons Fantasy Games of Thrones – filmed in large part on location in my native Northern Ireland – has entranced the American viewing public over the past decade: For the early 21st century has seen US policymakers and opinion-shapers plunging ever deeper into one fantasy after another. But even Game of Thrones pales in incredibility and absurdity next to the fantasy still believed by most Americans — That Barack Obama was a wise and responsible, peace-loving statesman.
In truth, Obama, casually and with evident self-satisfaction, unleashed series of catastrophic foreign national security policies that sent the world careening to the brink of nuclear war and inflicted needless suffering on scores of millions of people. No Game of Thrones villain ever did anything like that damage.

Over the past several months, I have been examining the underlying or hidden motivations behind the currently expanding global trade war, including the impressive level of cognitive dissonance surrounding the issue. The political left doesn’t seem to have an intelligent grasp of economic issues in the slightest. I’m not seeing any critical discussion from leftist media outlets or pundits on fiscal uncertainties, and the only reaction that is common from them is that they hope that the trade war results in the financial downfall of the US so that Trump can be voted out in 2020. They may very well get their wish, but they seem to imagine themselves celebrating at the end of the disaster, and I predict they’ll be so concerned with their own financial survival that they won’t have time to celebrate…

Maxine Waters can dish it out, but she can’t take it.
While filming “Dummycrats” last week, social media sensations Diamond and Silk visited Maxine Waters’ Los Angeles district to talk to locals about their representation in Congress.
They decided to drop in on Maxine Waters to have a little chat about what they learned.
In a new teaser released for the film, the pro-Trump duo is on the sidewalk outside the office.

Liberal activists and journalists are melting down over Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement from the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Kennedy, who has served as the court’s swing vote for decades, has now opened the door for President Donald Trump to finally give conservatives their long-desired court majority. (RELATED: Kennedy Calls It Quits: Longtime Swing Justice Hands Trump The Biggest Gift Of His Presidency)
Progressives immediately reacted to Kennedy’s retirement with fear, anger, and sadness.
With Martial Law Plans Already In Place, We Could Lose America If We Don’t Stop What’s Happening Right Now

Reporting out of FEMA Region III.
In the 1st video at the bottom of this story featuring Mike Adams the Health Ranger, he immediately tells us why his video was an emergency broadcast: We could lose America if we don’t stop what’s happening right now!
While the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday to uphold President Trump’s travel ban was a huge win for the US Constitution, America and for President Trump’s agenda, as Adams tells us, it may already be too late with the mainstream media weaponizing lies to incite the masses and more and more ‘events’ indicating something very bad is brewing with the increasingly irrational and hostile left growing more angry and completely unhinged every day.

Joel Davis, chairman of the International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict, has been arrested in New York. He faces charges of enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, possession of child pornography and receipt and distribution of child pornography.
According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said:
“Joel Davis started an organization devoted to stopping sexual violence, while allegedly engaged in the duplicitous behavior of sharing explicit images of infants engaged in sexual activity. Davis also allegedly solicited an undercover officer – whom he thought to be a willing participant – to send sexually explicit videos of his nine-year-old daughter, and even to set up a sexual encounter between himself and a two-year-old. The conduct alleged against Joel Davis is as unfathomable as it is sickening, and as this case demonstrates, law enforcement will keep its watchful eye on the darkest corners of the internet to bring predators to justice.”
by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
Liberals call Trump and conservatives who support him “Nazis” and “Hitler.” Which as I pointed out in my last column is wrong, reckless, and bordering on insanity. Hitler and the Nazis killed 6 million Jews and tens of millions of others in WWII. Nothing compares to Hitler or Nazis. To make that comparison is obscene.
But it is ironic that Democrats and liberals are the ones who are closest to acting like Nazis. If not Nazis, they sure are acting like the mafia. Or murdering street thugs. Or “domestic terrorists.” Take your pick.
Liberals are purposely demonizing, intimidating and persecuting people whose politics they disagree with. They are inciting violence. And this is no joke: They are going to get someone killed. Whether it’s a Republican politician, or an ICE agent, or just a conservative in the wrong place, at the wrong time, wearing a red Trump MAGA hat. As sure as I’m sitting here, someone is going to kill a conservative based on this violent rhetoric.

According to a new Rasmussen poll, 31% of likely voters believe that a Civil War is coming soon. And most voters fear that the political violence is coming from opponents of the president’s policies.
This isn’t in contrast to the views during Barack Obama’s second term, which was that again, opponents of the sitting president’s policies were feared to be the violent ones.
Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, with 11% who say it’s Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely.

Establishment collaborates to dehumanize conservatives ahead of violent uprising
A video put together by The Daily Caller shows how the mainstream media, entertainment figures and establishment politicians are all urging Democrat party voters to wage a violent revolution against people who support President Donald Trump.

What we are witnessing today in Afghanistan was not to be anticipated – Washington started negotiations with the terrorist Taliban movement. Just recently, deputy assistant to the US President, Lisa Curtis announced that the White House is prepared to get engaged in a peaceful dialogue with representatives of the Taliban movement. This statement was preceded by a similar one that the the US permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley last January, after she made a visit to the Afghan capital – Kabul.
Those announcement is nothing but a direct result of the complete failure of the strategy that Washington has been pursuing throughout the Afghan conflict. The changes that Donald Trump introduced to this approach made little to no difference in the long run, which Washington had to reluctantly acknowledged.
