‘Homeland’ Character Has a Strategy to Defeat ISIS

Prosecuting climate chaos skeptics with RICO

BQI Contributor

My article this week addresses the outrageous, unconstitutional and un-American efforts of 16 Democratic attorneys general to pursue, investigate, prosecute and punish “dangerous manmade global warming” skeptics – for the “abhorrent crime” of challenging the “97% consensus” that “climate change is real.” It presents some very inconvenient facts for these prosecutors … and suggests that they might have much greater success if they went after the real deceivers: climate alarmists who have been cooking the books for years on this issue.

Thank you for posting my column for your Saturday readers.

Communism Part IV: American Radicals

By The Glenn Beck Program

A generation has passed since the Cold War ended — and along with it, a true understanding of communism. Young voters today grew up in school systems where capitalism was often a dirty word. They heard the siren call of socialism and its promise of being the great equalizer. They’re in for a rude awakening.

In this series, Glenn discusses the origins of communism, what it really means and what lurks behind the pleasant label of “democratic socialism.”

Communism Part IV: American Radicals

Income equality, thriving economies parody throughout society. Perpetual peace. Utopia. These were the lofty goals and idealistic promises of communism. One hundred million dead during peacetime, continual war and/or the threat of it, economic disaster, state-controlled media, governmental lies, labor camps, concentration camps, starvation, police states, lack of freedom, and state-sponsored atheism. This is the reality of communism.

Communism Part III: The Rise in America

America has been the single biggest force in changing the fortunes of the world, more than any other nation ever conceived. As such, you would assume the nation would be celebrated. And with many, it is. But with others, it’s mocked, ridiculed, derided, blamed and demonized. And then there are those within its own borders who have sought to fundamentally transform it.

Ever since communism took root in Russia and began spreading its philosophy around the globe, the United States has been fighting its spread from the outside. The more difficult battle, however, has come from within. Even with the freedom, prosperity and quality of life in America, for a variety of reasons, there have always been dissenters.

Communism Part II: The Scourge Spreads   - Part II

Communism’s first leader — Vladimir Lenin — fell ill and died in 1924, setting the stage for Josef Stalin. Just as it had been under the first few years of communist policies, the Soviet Union fell into another great famine in the early ’30s. Stalin brutally kept food from starving people, ordering his soldiers to shoot and kill peasants that came near it. Adding to the five million who had succumbed to the famine of 1921, another six million people died.

Communism and America – A Four Part Series

BQI  Editor

Today begins our reporting of a four [4] part series provided by Glenn Beck.

Today we are witnessing the fundamental transformation of America. The process, however, did not begin with the election of Barack Obama. No, the process began years ago and involved people that you will be shocked to learn were intimately involved in its advancement. Beginning with Progressivism and Social Justice sprinkled with Democratic Socialism, all to form the underpinnings of Communism in America.

We begin with the roots of Communism.

The Left’s Unholy Alliance with Islam

by PoliticallyShort

The Islamic State terrorist organization known as ISIS first outlined their strategy to attack the West in a 99-page manifesto issued in January of 2015 under the title of "Black Flags from Rome." ISIS states that their strategy in the West is to do "hit and run tactics and then go into hiding in order to waste millions and billions of dollars on police while shutting down major cities."

James Comey and Loretta Lynch Hold the Whole Country in Their Hands

BQI Editor’s Comments

Since taking office, Barack Obama has done tremendous damage to America by routinely violating our laws and more importantly the Constitution. His actions have been so widespread and so objectionable that many Americans have lost faith in one of the most critical  principles upon which this nation was founded; the rule of law.  No clearer example of this lost faith exists than in the ongoing investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.  Ask any man or woman on the street and they will tell you that despite what will be overwhelming evidence of a crime, few if anyone expects to see Hillary suffer any consequence for her illegal actions let alone being indicted. Any failure to indict will be the result of yet another illegal and destructive act by Barack Obama.

Astro turf protestors

Democracy Spring (DS) was established as a political movement in early 2016 to warn Americans that “our democracy is in crisis” because U.S. “elections are dominated by billionaires and big-money interests who can spend unlimited sums of money on political campaigns to protect their special interests at the general expense.” Though DS did not mention Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by name, it was clearly alluding to him in its vow to “make this election a referendum on whether our democracy should belong to the People as a whole or to the billionaire class” wherein “the super-rich dominate the 'money primary' that decides who can run for office.”

Radical Leftists Unleash Anti-Trump Riots Starting On March 19th

Many of the exact same groups that participated in Occupy Wall Street and helped organize protest rallies in Ferguson and Baltimore are now promising to bring us “the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation”.  I recently wrote about the trouble that radical leftists have caused by attempting to disrupt Trump campaign events, but now there is a very organized effort to turn this into a national movement.  On March 19th, thousands of angry protesters will descend on Trump Tower in New York City to denounce Donald Trump’s “fascist policies”, and on April 2nd dozens of leftist organizations will join together to launch “Democracy Spring” in Philadelphia.  From there, large numbers of liberal activists will march to Washington D.C. where they will “risk arrest” during a “peaceful” sit-in at the U.S. Capitol from April 11th to April 18th.  If the radical left is this freaked out about Donald Trump now, how bad will things get if he actually becomes the Republican nominee?

It Is Time For A Remedial History Lesson For Political Candidates

BY LAWRENCE KADISH/GATESTONE INSTITUTE MARCH 16, 2016

Against the backdrop of venomous presidential primary races and fierce partisan warfare over the next Supreme Court nominee it is time for a remedial history lesson for America's White House hopefuls.

The past repeatedly reminds us that major nations were brought to their knees when their economies unraveled. More than any constitutional crises, war, plague or immigrants at the borders, when massive debt is the central pillar of a nation's economy its very survival is in jeopardy.

Donald Trump and Narcissistic Personality Disorder: An Interview with Sam Vaknin

Donald Trump and Narcissistic Personality Disorder: An Interview with Sam Vaknin

By Arlen Williams

Shmuel Ben David “Sam” Vaknin is an authority on the subject of narcissism, having written the widely read and very favorably reviewed book, Malignant Self Love: Narcissism Revisited and Narcissistic and Psychopathic Leaders. He may be described as a polymath, with extraordinary expertise (and experience) in abnormal psychology, and with focuses including temporal physics and politics (See his Web siteYouTube site, andWikipedia bio).

Some see Donald Trump's behavior in the media and become concerned. I recently had the opportunity to discuss him with Sam Vaknin.

Trump Rallies Reveal Increased Tensions Among Americans As This Nation Plunges Toward Civil Unrest

America is coming apart at the seams, and Trump rallies have become the latest flashpoint for the rising tide of civil unrest that is sweeping the nation.  For years, I have been writing about the increasing levels of anger and frustration in this country, but now they are reaching a fever pitch.  And rather than channeling all of our anger and frustration into solving our problems, we have allowed ourselves to become deeply divided and many Americans seem to be taking glee in fighting with one another.  Instead of learning to hate one another, we should be learning how to love one another.  Unfortunately, America has chosen another path, and 2016 is very rapidly starting to look very much like the chaotic political year of 1968.  No matter how the rest of this election season plays out, it appears that we have entered a time of violence, chaos, civil unrest and greatly increased tension among Americans.

Arabic ‘Educational’ Video Teaches Girls That Not Wearing Hijab ‘Brings You Closer to Satan’

The indoctrination is elaborate and starts early -- and this is what the West doesn't understand.

Westerners often fall into the trap of projecting their own values and mores onto a people to whom such concepts are completely alien. The following Qatari "educational" video shows the kind of deep-seated and far-reaching indoctrination efforts underway across most all Islamic societies. The video teaches young girls that not wearing a hijab will in fact bring them "closer to Satan."

MEMRI provides the video clip and translation of the animated video dubbed "Salma and the Hijab."
The video was taken from an interactive educational software installment for "Boys and Girls," the children's arm of the Qatari government-owned Internet portal Islamweb.net. This video was posted on the Internet February 17, 2016.

Collapse Of Italy’s Banks Could Plunge The European Financial System Into Chaos


BY MICHAEL SNYDER - THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG MARCH 08, 2016
The Italian banking system is a "leaning tower" that truly could completely collapse at literally any moment.  And as Italy's banks begin to go down like dominoes, it is going to set off financial panic all over Europe unlike anything we have ever seen before.

I wrote about the troubles in Italy back in January, but since that time the crisis has escalated.  At this point, Italian banking stocks have declined a whopping 28 percent since the beginning of 2016, and when you look at some of the biggest Italian banks the numbers become even more frightening.

On Monday, shares of Monte dei Paschi were down 4.7 percent, and they have now plummeted 56 percent since the start of the year.  Shares of Carige were down 8 percent, and they have now plunged a total of 58 percent since the start of the year.  This is what a financial crisis looks like, and just like we are seeing in South America, the problems in Italy appear to be significantly accelerating.

Donald Trump’s Cult of Personality

BQI Editor's Note

What does it say about a public figure or leader who mocks his own following? Well it says a number of things. One it says that the individual thinks very little of those who would follow him. It says that he lacks respect and holds them in little regard. It also says that he/she is likely a narcissist or egomaniac who understands the power of stardom and uses it to advance their own desires and beliefs as opposed to those held by the adherents. But, it also says something about the people who would follow such an individual.

It says that they prefer to act on emotion and by doing so will refuse to see, listen to or consider facts that would prove their misplaced loyalty. Such irrationality typically leads to tragedy or unintended consequences.

Today's article provides some analysis of Donald Trump's Cult of Personality

Progressive Totalitarianism

by Politically Short

In his book The Snapping of the American MindDavid Kupelian asks the following painful question that millions of Americans like myself have pondered for years and will ponder for some time to come as America slowly rips itself apart. Kupelian writes, "How could it be that hundreds of thousands of Americans fought and bled – and many died – on foreign shores to contain an evil and metas-tasizing ideology variously called communism, Marxism, socialism, collectivism, or statism, and yet now, just a few years later, we would gaze up at the pinnacle of power in our own country and behold leaders in thrall to essentially the same core ideology we fought and died to protect strangers from?"

Venezuela Is Out Of Food: Here’s What An Economic Collapse Really Looks Like

BY DAISY LUTHER/ACTIVISTPOST.COM MARCH 01, 2016

Venezuela is out of food.

After several years of long lines, rationing, and shortages, the socialist country does not have enough food to feed its population, and the opposition government has declared a nutritional emergency. This is just the most recent nail in the beleaguered countrys slow, painful economic collapse.

Many people expect an economic collapse to be shocking, instant, and dramatic but, really, its far more gradual than that. It looks like empty shelves, long lines, desperate government officials trying to cover their tushes, and hungry people. For the past two years, I've been following the situation in Venezuela as each shocking event has unfolded. Americans who feel that our country would be better served by a socialist government would be wise to take note of this timeline of the collapse.

Donald Trump

by Chris Martineau 

The Donald seems to do very well in the polls by "speaking his mind" and not caring who he offends. His supporters clearly adore him for being "politically incorrect," so hopefully they will be consistent and fair-minded, and indulge me while I do the same.

From the outside looking in - Trump support appears to the other 2/3's of the GOP and the rest of the planet to be much more akin to a religion - than a political preference.

Allow me a moment to explain.

The Real Trump

The Evangelical Monolith?


One of the oft repeated utterances amongst the television talking heads post the South Carolina Pramary, left and right and then aped by their viewers is: "Cruz was counting on carrying the evangelical vote in South Carolina and Trump got more of them instead.”
When a Democrat pundit speaks this, or some variation of the statement, it reveals the one-dimensional thinking rife in those who lean left--it's programming really, it’s the reason they tend to support the Bernie and Hillary types.
Liberals believe in monoliths--because the left stacks people neatly into rigid piles so they can develop ways to pander specifically to each. The Black vote, the women's vote, the LGBT vote... Each get's it's scientifically designed, specifically tailored set of promises to deal with grievances created by their Hegelian masters.

21 New Numbers That Show That The Global Economy Is Imploding

After a series of stunning declines through the month of January and the first half of February, global financial markets seem to have found a patch of relative stability at least for the moment.  But that does not mean that the crisis is over.

On the contrary, all of the hard economic numbers that are coming in from around the world tell us that the global economy is coming apart at the seams.  This is especially true when you look at global trade numbers.  The amount of stuff that is being bought, sold and shipped around the planet is falling precipitously.  So don't be fooled if stocks go up one day or down the next.

The truth is that we are in the early chapters of a brand new economic meltdown, and I believe that all of the signs indicate that it will continue to get worse in the months ahead.  The following are 21 new numbers that show that the global economy is absolutely imploding...

ISIS Chemical Threat Closer To Reality

Indications are that ISIS will attempt some form of terrorist attack soon. It's expected to be just a matter of time - not if, but when. How and where still remains to be seen, but the 'how' factor could turn out to be the most disturbing aspect of all.

Just this last week an Isis cell was dismantled in Morocco that authorities say were planning an attack involving chemical weapons.

Ten suspects were arrested in a raid on a safe house last Thursday. They had been planning a suicide attack for the following day, Moroccos Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) Director Abdelhak Khiame told a press conference.

Cruz: We Cannot Let This Guy Get Away

by Lloyd Marcus

My wife Mary and I are in Nevada with our Conservative Campaign Committee team campaigning for Ted Cruz. We awoke this morning to snow. Mary asked me to walk several blocks from our hotel to Walgreen's to pick up a few things. With my headset plugged into my smart phone, I listened to Ted Cruz's press conference during my trek.

Wow! Cruz's brilliant bold performance at that press conference showcased why America desperately needs Ted Cruz in the White House. The MSM (Democrat operatives) tried to use Obama's talking points to pressure Cruz and the GOP into allowing Obama to appoint a flaming liberal to the Supreme Court in his remaining months. Cruz did not fall for it. He firmly said no; not happening.

The Fake “Black Lives Matter” narrative exposed.

To have an open debate one must respond to facts with facts and not attempt to mock or ridicule the other side by flopping around as if to suggest the person providing facts is stupid, uninformed and out of touch.

"I come from planet earth"...really...that is your response to the facts presented.

ALL LIVES MATTER.

World War 3 Could Start This Month: 350,000 Soldiers In Saudi Arabia Stand Ready To Invade Syria

350,000 soldiers, 20,000 tanks, 2,450 warplanes and 460 military helicopters are massing in northern Saudi Arabia for a military exercise that is being called “Northern Thunder”.  According to the official announcement, forces are being contributed by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Sudan, Kuwait, Morocco, Pakistan, Tunisia, Oman, Qatar, Malaysia and several other nations.  This exercise will reportedly last for 18 days, and during that time the airspace over northern Saudi Arabia will be closed to air traffic.  This will be the largest military exercise in the history of the region, and it comes amid rumors that Saudi Arabia and Turkey are preparing for a massive ground invasion of Syria.

If you were going to gather forces for an invasion, this is precisely how you would do it.  Governments never come out and publicly admit that forces are moving into position for an invasion ahead of time, so “military exercises” are a common excuse that gets used for this sort of thing.

Shame On The Pastors Who Anointed Hillary Clinton As President

Maybe former Secretary of State Madeline Albright had it right but with the wrong victims. It won’t be women who don’t support Hillary or other women.

BQI Editor

Hillary Clinton is white. The pastors who declared her to be the next president of the United States, surrounded by the favor of the Lord, were black. Hillary Clinton is a woman. Most of the pastors were men.

So, this is not a color issue and this is not a gender issue. This is a righteousness issue, and it is shameful for ministers of the gospel to bless a candidate who stands for a woman's "right" to shed innocent blood in the womb (through all nine months of pregnancy), who aggressively supports the redefinition of marriage and who calls for the changing of cherished religious beliefs.

Shame on those who partook in this ceremony. It would have been one thing if they prayed for her in a biblical way, asking God to bring her to Himself and to help her fulfill her God-given destiny. By all means, we should pray for Hillary Clinton (just as we should pray for Bernie Sanders and for the Republican candidates).
