Left-wing Racism

November 9, 2021

By Gary Bauer

Day after day, left-wing commentators on MSNBC are spouting unbelievable racism. Winsome Sears, Virginia's lieutenant governor-elect, has been the target of much of the vitriol in recent days. But over the weekend, some MSNBC commentators went after Democrats too, and white voters.  

Roland Martin attacked James Carville, the famed "Ragin' Cajun," saying, "I think Carville should shut the 'F' up because I'm sick of these white men whining and complaining about wokeness."

Host Tiffany Cross seemed to relish racial discord, saying that America's increasingly diverse population is "going to be uncomfortable for a lot of people. . . We've [minority Americans] been uncomfortable for a long time. At this point in history, we're comfortable making people uncomfortable."

So much for racial reconciliation.
Another commentator, Elie Mystal, said that white voters don't really care about "kitchen table issues like infrastructure. . . I contend that what they care about is using their guns on black people and getting away with it. That's what they want."

Mystal is obviously a committed racist and there he is on MSNBC, spouting his vile racial hatred. Most Americans want racial harmony, but bigots like Mystal stoke the flames of racial discord.

MSNBC is the flagship network of the left, and it routinely spouts a steady diet of racism aimed at white Americans. How do they get away with this? 

Where are the "socially responsible" corporate CEOs who are so quick to denounce racism and bigotry? Why are they not pulling their advertising from MSNBC?

Durham's On Track

November 8, 2021

By Gary Bauer

A number of people who are closely following the investigation of Special Counsel John Durham are noting that he's pursuing two tracks in his slow, methodical work. 

The first track involves tackling those connected to the Clinton political machine who implemented Hillary's plan to smear Donald Trump in a Russian collusion scam, thereby casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2016 election and crippling his presidency. Sadly, the smear succeeded to a considerable extent. 

The second and most important track involves individuals inside the Deep State. These individuals eagerly embraced the false collusion narrative even when the facts were obvious, and even after they had credible information that it was nothing more than a Hillary dirty trick. 

The FBI interviewed Igor Danchenko in 2017 and he vehemently denied that his information was accurately reflected in the dossier. But lied to the FBI about his sources for the dossier – Clinton confidant Charles Dolan, Jr

The CIA notified the FBI that it had evidence that some Russians were working with the Clinton campaign to smear Trump with false claims of collusion. But former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that the CIA notification went to Peter Strzok, who failed to act on it.  Strzok, you may recall, was fired from the FBI for his blatant anti-Trump bias.

The FBI, knowing the dossier was fatally flawed, nonetheless used it before the FISA courts to monitor various people in the Trump Administration. All of this raises serious questions about other fired officials like Bruce Ohr, Andrew McCabe and James Comey. 

By the way, don't forget that John Durham isn't the first special counsel to investigate the Russian collusion hoax. And that begs the question: Why didn't Special Counsel Robert Mueller uncover any of what John Durham has discovered? 

I think we all know why. Robert Mueller was never in charge of his own investigation. That was obvious from his congressional testimony. The coverup here is huge!

This was the biggest dirty trick in the history of American politics. Years from now, political science students will be studying "Hillarygate" instead of Watergate. It deeply damaged one of the most consequential presidents in modern history, and it shattered the reputation of the FBI. 

Meanwhile, many neo-con Never Trumpers are silent about the remarkable charges filed by Durham and what those charges suggest was done to destroy Donald Trump. 

January 6th was a protest that got stupidly out of control. What the Deep State did in 2016 and throughout the entire Russian collusion hoax and Ukraine phone call impeachment hoax – yes, they're linked! – was nothing short of a coup attempt. That's the real threat to our constitutional Republic!

So, here's an interesting question: Will Durham, who's known for moving slowly and methodically, bring more astonishing indictments before next November's congressional election or during the 2024 presidential contest?

And where does Donald Trump go to get his reputation back from this disgusting smear that he was elected by colluding with the Russians, when it was Hillary Clinton who colluded with Russians?

Russia Hoax Unravelling

Do Not Comply

Getting Closer To Clinton, Real Threats

Friday, November 5, 2021

By Gary Bauer

Getting Closer To Clinton

We told you yesterday about the arrest of Igor Danchenko. This may well be a very significant development. And you can tell it's important because not one major news network, other than Fox News, reported on his arrest. 

Every person that is being identified and indicted in the Durham investigation is part of the Clinton mafia. Michael Sussmann, along with Marc Elias, was a lawyer for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. 

Sussman also represented a tech executive who was looking to get a big job in Hillary's administration. Now we're learning that Igor Danchenko is connected to Charles Dolan, Jr., a public relations executive. 

Dolan worked on Bill Clinton's presidential campaign. He also worked on Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign. In 2006, Dolan's PR firm signed a deal to handle public relations for – wait for it – the Russian government. It turns out that Dolan provided some of the information that Danchecko used in producing the Steele dossier.  

This is absolutely stunning news. So much so, that today's Washington Post was forced to admit, "The allegations cast new uncertainty on some past reporting on the dossier by news organizations, including The Washington Post."

Yes, there was Russian collusion – with the Clinton campaign!

Don't forget that then-CIA Director John Brennan briefed President Obama about plans by the Clinton campaign to smear Donald Trump with accusations that he was colluding with the Russians. 

And the conspiracy continued even after the election. The Obama White House was scrambling up until their very last minutes to keep the smear alive. We know that from a bizarre memo Susan Rice sent to herself on the morning of January 20, 2017, as Donald Trump was being inaugurated.

There is a glimmer of hope that the Durham investigation will bring more Clinton operatives and their Russian co-conspirators to justice. 

Real Threats

I know many people did not like Donald Trump's combative style. The definition of empathy is putting yourself in someone else's shoes and trying to imagine what they're going through. If you've ever been lied about or had your character unjustly questioned, you understand how miserable that can be.

So, imagine being elected president of the United States over the opposition of every powerful force in America. 

Imagine seeing day after day unnamed sources accusing you of treason and being Putin's puppet.

Imagine knowing that some people in the FBI are more dedicated to taking you down than finding the truth. Meanwhile, people on the National Security Council inside the White House are trying to undermine your presidency. 

Now imagine that while you're fighting this leftist juggernaut, NeverTrumpers and RINOs in your party are enthusiastically supporting the left's efforts to destroy you. 

The remarkable thing is that for four long, tough years, Donald Trump worked tirelessly to make America great again, and he never surrendered to this pack of hyenas. 

Anyone worried about threats to our liberty should be terrified by what the Deep State, Big Media, Big Tech and their left-wing political allies did to Donald Trump.


Detained Aliens Claim Right to Release—into America

November 1, 2021

IRLI shows Supreme Court that aliens who choose their detention have no such right


WASHINGTON—The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the Supreme Court urging the Court to grant review of a lower-court ruling giving all aliens in detention the right to bond hearings and probable release even though the immigration laws passed by Congress provide no such right.


The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued this ruling not based on the statutory law, but on its own expansion of an earlier Supreme Court ruling granting a bond hearing to an alien who would not be accepted by any other country if deported, and therefore faced indefinite detention in the United States.


In its brief, IRLI points out the differences between the situation of the alien the Supreme Court gave relief to and that of the vast majority of the detained aliens subject to the Ninth Circuit's ruling. First, the aliens given hearings by the Ninth Court do not face either indefinite or punitive detention. Rather, as Congress requires, they are detained as they fight their deportation in the courts. Their detention will have an end-point when their challenges to their deportation are decided, and they are either released into the United States with lawful status or removed to their home countries.


Second, IRLI points out that the aliens the Ninth Circuit gave bond hearings to can leave detention at any time—simply by voluntarily returning to their home countries. Thus, they have chosen their detention—unlike the alien in the earlier Supreme Court case whom no country would accept—and accordingly lack any due process right to liberty that Congress has not provided by statute.


"The detention of removable aliens, whether they are illegal aliens or criminal aliens, is fundamentally different from detention as a sentence for a crime," said Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of IRLI. "The United States is not holding them prisoner against their will. Rather, it is allowing them to remain in the United States while they challenge their deportation in the courts, and setting the conditions for their remaining here. If they don't like those conditions, they can always leave detention and return to their native land. We hope the Supreme Court sees this, grants review, and reverses the Ninth Circuit's unprincipled rewrite of the law Congress passed."


The case is Garland v. Gonzalez, No. 20-322 (Supreme Court).

Antisemitic Attack on GWU Frat

November 1, 2021 

Attack on Jewish Fraternity Demonstrates Jews Need the Same Constitutional Protections as Any Other Minority Group

A George Washington University fraternity house's Torah was destroyed after a break-in during the early hours of Sunday, Oct. 31. The Torah belonging to Tau Kappa Epsilon was undressed, torn and smeared with laundry detergent. Other areas in the house also saw extensive damage, including hot sauce on the walls and fire alarms ripped out of the walls. 

EMET applauds GWU President Thomas LeBlanc, who said he was "appalled," for calling out this act of antisemitism for what it is and drawing attention to it. EMET stands in solidarity with the brothers of TKE.

This event is by no means the first incident of antisemitism this school year; antisemitism has plagued college campuses from Boston to Santa Monica. Mezuzahs - encased prayers handwritten on parchment and affixed to doorposts - have been ripped off doors at Northeastern, Tufts and Indiana; a building at Yale was sprayed with antisemitic graffiti and a rabbi at Santa Monica College had his car vandalized. 

According to a survey by the Anti-Defamation League and Hillel International, one-third of Jewish students have personally experienced antisemitism on college campuses. The fact that half of American Jewish college students feel the need to conceal their Jewish identities is an absolute disgrace, and speaks reams about how many of their peers, professors and even certain administrators have led them to feel a sense of shame when they have every reason to be proud of their identities. 

Said EMET Founder and President Sarah Stern, "Over the years, we have witnessed the normalization of antisemitism in many segments of American society, but nowhere is it more pronounced than on the American college campus, and our Jewish students are on the front lines of attack. We should never forget that the first institutions to adopt Naziism in Germany were universities, who immediately dismissed their Jewish faculty. Too many university administrators have been far too craven in showing solidarity and support for Jewish students as antisemitic attacks have risen to unprecedented levels.  

"Universities have always been hotbeds of inflamed speech, but in many of today's universities, certain speech is deemed objectionable, and is 'canceled,' while others are deemed acceptable, making for a sort of uniformity of speech code. And while we are taught to be very careful about "microaggressions" against certain of our students, others are subjected to blatant, aggressive and sometimes violent attack. This is a far cry from the 'free speech' principles enshrined within our Constitution and lends itself to the totalitarian mob rule. 

"In light of that, we would like to express our profound gratitude to George Washington University  President Thomas LeBlanc for his words of solidarity and support for his Jewish students. However, in order to prevent further discrimination against the Jewish community on college campuses throughout the United States, Jews must be afforded the same protections under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act as any other minority group."

Desperate Dominion Energy Bankrolling NEW Attacks on Glenn Youngkin

Oct. 29, 2021

McAuliffe's Failure to Inspire is Generating More Voter Suppression Efforts

ROANOKE - Dominion Energy is officially remaining silent, but their giant contributions to a shadowy PAC are buying new voter suppression ads attacking Glenn Youngkin in the final hours of the campaign. 

The shadowy "Accountability Virginia PAC" run by Democratic operatives and financed by Dominion Energy PAC has recently initiated several new advertising campaign aimed at suppressing conservative voters - again claiming Glenn Youngkin is insufficiently supportive of the Second Amendment while Terry McAuliffe's campaign continues to try to scare liberal voters into believing that Youngkin is overzealously supportive of gun rights.

"Terry McAuliffe and his cronies at the electric monopoly are desperate to cling to power. They know McAuliffe's abysmal record isn't inspiring support outside of those who love his coin-operated government ways so they are aggressively trying to suppress the vote," said Senator David Suetterlein (R-Roanoke County).

As the voter suppression attacks on Glenn Youngkin continue so has Dominion Energy's refusal to talk about their huge contributions or their collaborators in the effort.

Dominion Energy contributed $250,000 to "Accountability Virginia" between July 28 and September 30 including $75,000 afterAxios initially reportedon the shadowy PAC's use of suppression advertising aimed at Second Amendment supporters. Dominion refuses to disclose how much they contributed to "Accountability Virginia" since October 1 meaning that information will not be public until after the next Governor is inaugurated in January 2022.

"Anyone that doesn't think their vote is valuable needs to recognize that the electric monopoly is willing to spend more than $250,000 to keep them from electing a reformer like Glenn Youngkin," said Suetterlein.

Virginia Senator David Suetterlein was elected to a second term in November 2019 representing Salem and Bedford, Carroll, Floyd, Franklin, Montgomery, Roanoke and Wythe counties in the Virginia Senate. He lives in Roanoke County with his wife where their children attend public schools. He is a Realtor with the Roanoke Valley owned and operated MKB, REALTORS.

COVID-19 Expulsions to Continue?

October 29, 2021

IRLI shows why activist court should be reversed


WASHINGTON—Yesterday, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals supporting the government's appeal of a lower-court injunction against the Trump-initiated policy of expelling illegal aliens who cross the border under a public health statute. The appellate court had previously suspended the injunction, allowing the expulsions, meant to protect the nation against COVID-19, to continue pending appeal.

In its brief, IRLI tears into the flawed reasoning of the lower court, which argued that the power Congress gave the executive in the health statute to "prohibit the introduction" of aliens at a land border did not include the power to expel aliens who had already been "introduced" by crossing the border. Even if the court's flawed definition of "introduced" were correct, IRLI points out, the power Congress gave the executive to "prohibit" the introduction of aliens is illusory and cannot be executed if it does not include a power to expel aliens who violate its prohibitions. It is obvious that Congress did not grant an illusory power in such an important area as the public health.

"The lower court's ruling in this case was both absurd and dangerous," said Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of IRLI. "To say that federal officers can prohibit people from crossing the border, but then have to stand there and do nothing if they do cross the border, is ridiculous. We hope the DC Circuit sees the glaring error of that ruling, and allows this vital national program to go on."

The case is Huisha-Huisha v. Mayorkas, No. 21-5200 (DC Circuit).

Biden to End Wait in Mexico on Appeal?

October 26, 2021

IRLI opposes effort to ditch program Supreme Court left in place

WASHINGTON—The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in opposition to the Biden administration's appeal of a district court order restoring the Wait in Mexico asylum policy. The district court had ordered this Trump administration policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico to wait for their asylum hearings in that country, rather than in the United States, resumed until such time as the border is under control.


Faced with this court order, the administration filed emergency applications in the Fifth Circuit and the Supreme Court to have the district court's order stayed, or suspended, pending appeal. The Fifth Circuit declined to do so and, following a friend-of-the-court brief by IRLI opposing the administration's application in the Supreme Court, that Court also denied a stay, leaving the district court's order in place during the appeal process.


In its brief, IRLI shows that Wait in Mexico is vital in reducing the incentive for aliens to cross our border to make meritless asylum claims. And IRLI defends the district court's order that the administration keep Wait in Mexico in place until the border is under control: IRLI points out that the law gives the administration the choice of either detaining arriving asylum-seekers or returning them to Mexico to wait for their hearings, and the administration lacks the capacity to do the former during the current crisis. Thus, what the district court ordered—the resumption of Wait in Mexico until detention becomes an option—is the only lawful course for the administration to take.


"Wait in Mexico is a key component of Trump policies that, working together, had brought control to our border," said Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of IRLI. "By going back on these policies, Biden has created the current influx. We hope the Fifth Circuit upholds the district court here, as we press forward to reverse the administration's other unlawful and disastrous border policies."


The case is State of Texas, State of Missouri v. Biden, 21-10806 (Fifth Circuit).
