Operation Choke Point


Operation Choke Point is an initiative of the United States Department of Justice that was disclosed in 2013 aimed at pressuring the financial industry to cut off targeted companies’ access to banking services.

The Obama DOJ has been doing this without first having shown that the targeted companies are violating the law.

Critics say, “It’s a thinly veiled ideological attack on industries the Obama administration doesn’t like, such as gun sellers and coal producers.”

How Soros Destroyed the Democratic Party


“Money poured into the fringe organizations of the left like MoveOn, which had moved on from a petition site to a PAC. In 2004, Soros was its biggest donor. He didn’t manage to bring down Bush, but he helped buy the Democratic Party as a toy for his yowling dorm room of left-wing activists to play with.

“Soros hasn’t had a great track record at buying presidential elections. The official $25 million he poured into this one bought him his worst defeat since 2004. But his money did transform the Democrat Party.

“And killed it. …

“And the Democrats don’t intend to change course. The way is being cleared for Keith Ellison, the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus with an ugly racist past, to head the DNC. Pelosi will oversee the disaster in the House. And Obama will remain the party’s highest profile national figure.

“There could hardly be a clearer signal that the left intends to retain its donkey herding rights. Soros and his ilk have paid for the reins.”

Must-read essay by a Jewish-American mom living in the West Bank



Arabs living in Israel have more freedom, more education, more democracy, more of a voice and more opportunity than in the thousands and thousands of miles of stretches of the many Arab countries in the Middle East. Jews no longer exist in those countries because of the racism/apartheid against them that is so rampant, so commonplace and yet, has not warranted a single speech in the UN or from the White House condemning it. …

Annexation would end the dispute over disputed territories. It would give full rights to those living in the areas known as “post 1967” lines. It would allow Jews and Arabs to buy land and build where they live. And to argue and disagree and VOTE. And make the system better over time. With a real democracy. It would allow women to become doctors and lawyers and famous news anchors, just like the Arab female role models Israel already has! It would allow Israel to throw out and deport all terrorists. Freeing the Palestinian people of the terrorists in their midst just as much as it would free Jews. Equal opportunity banishing of bad guys. Because I believe that non-terrorist Palestinians don’t want to live among terrorists, or be ruled by terrorists, or have to shelter terrorists. …

“Annexation would yes, “water down” my Jewish demographic. But that doesn’t bother me and it doesn’t scare me. You have just assumed that it would because of your racist prejudices against me. I would rather see people of all faiths live on the one island of democracy, freedom and hope that exists in the middle of an insanely mad world of violence, death, clitorectomies, child brides and much worse that is the Middle East today, than hand Palestinians over to the hands of thug leaders they don’t like or respect, they only fear and have to obey. Which is what those not blessed to be in Israel proper today have to suffer from.”

Daily Dose of Depression, Disgust

Three more weeks. Three more gut-wrenching, agonizing weeks of putting up the sorry excuse for a human that’s been defecating on the nation for the last eight years. You can bet he’ll raise as much hell as possible until the last minute of the last day. Yesterday he unilaterally (and likely illegally) expelled 35 Russian diplomats in retaliation for interfering with Hillary’s ascent to the throne. That he has absolutely no proof is of no import, he’s never needed it. He has also imposed sanctions on the Russians, although Putin is laughing him off as a joke who’ll be gone soon.

He’s doing what he can to poison international relations ahead of Trump’s attempts to enlist the Russkies as an ally to combat terrorism. Paul Ryan, McConnell, McCain, and Graham, quislings all, are screaming for even harsher sanctions against the the godless commies. My personal opinion is that Putin only respects people of strength, which he’s always known Obama not to be. That’s why he’s flexed his muscle throughout Eastern Europe. Considering Russia is a third world country with a first world military he may recognize PEOTUS is not someone to trifle with. Just a guess on my part.

Nearing exit, Obama seeks to tie Trump’s hands
President Obama has taken a flurry of unilateral actions in the waning days of his tenure that appear designed to box in President-elect Donald Trump.
Obama’s decision Thursday to sanction Russian entities for election-related hacking is just the latest obstacle he has placed in Trump’s way.
Day before the sanctions were unveiled, the Obama administration allowed the U.N. Security Council to condemn Israeli settlement activity – something that could have an indelible impact on the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
Obama has also permanently banned oil and gas drilling large swaths of the Atlantic and Arctic oceans, closed off 1.6 million acres of Western land to development and scrapped the last vestiges of a registration system used largely on Muslim immigrants.

DC private schools giving Kellyanne Conway the brush-off
Kellyanne Conway is worried establishment elites in Washington, DC, are so prejudiced against President-elect Donald Trump that she won’t be able to get her kids into private school in the nation’s capital.
Conway divulged her fears to other parents at the Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, NJ, on Thursday night, when her twins, George and Claudia, performed a concert with other students. Alicia Keys was also there to hear her goddaughter perform.

The Origins of International Law

Catholic theologians used Catholic doctrine to condemn mistreatment of New World natives during the Age of Discovery. Their writings formed the basis of international law, a concept that did not exist at the time.

An excerpt from How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. (p. 153) [Regnery, 2005] —

That injustices were committed in the conquest of the New World no serious person will deny, and priests at the time chronicled and condemned them.

But it is natural that we should wish to find some silver lining, some mitigating factor, amid the demographic tragedy that struck the peoples of the New World during the Age of Discovery.

And that silver lining was that the encounters between these peoples provided an especially opportune moment for moralists to discuss and develop the fundamental principles that must govern their interaction.

In this task they were aided enormously by the painstaking moral analysis of Catholic theologians teaching in Spanish universities.

As Hanke rightly concludes,

“The ideals which some Spaniards sought to put into practice as they opened up the New World will never lose their shining brightness as long as men believe that other peoples have a right to live, that just methods may be found for the conduct of relations between peoples, and that essentially all the peoples of the world are men.”

These are ideas with which the West has identified for centuries, and they come to us directly from the best of Catholic thought.

Thus do we have another pillar of Western civilization constructed by the Catholic Church.

Top 20 Celebrity Meltdowns of 2016


All of your favorites are here, as chronicled by Breitbart News over the past year; there’s Cher complaining about the divisiveness of the country while simultaneously calling Trump a “f*cking idiot;” Rosie O’Donnell unloading on the “orange motherf*cker” during the third presidential debate; Elizabeth Banks and Moby swearing like sailors in a last-ditch Funny or Die voter drive; Don Cheadle urging Trump to “die in a grease fire.”

1.. Lena Dunham grieves for Hillary Clinton after the election.

2. Cher
The “Believe” singer — who hosted a fundraiser for Clinton in August — compared Trump to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler (as did countless other celebrities, more on that below) and called him a “f*cking idiot.” She also made it a habit to use a toilet emoji whenever writing Trump’s name on Twitter.
3. Michael Moore

The left-wing documentary filmmaker released a surprise anti-Trump film, Michael Moore in TrumpLand, just weeks before Election Day, hoping to persuade Americans to pull the lever for Clinton.

4. Robert De Niro
“I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid,” De Niro said in the clip. “He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, he’s a bullsh*t artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes
5. Jennifer Lawrence
“So I had my full security, I was like, ‘Find Donald Trump,’” Lawrence told Norton. “Because I was adamant on finding him and then making a video of me going, ‘Hey Trump, f*ck you!‘”
6.. George Clooney

7. Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and more urge electors to vote against Trump

8. Rosie O’Donnell
O’Donnell and Trump have feuded publicly for years, but the hysteria level was kicked up a notch during the third presidential debate when O’Donnell went on a Twitter tear, calling him an “orange motherf*ker” and a “delusional turd.”
9. Late-night TV hosts (Colbert, Maher, Bee, Meyers etc.)

10. Elizabeth Banks, Moby, Rachel Bloom: “Jesus f*cking Christ, please vote.”
“Donald Trump is human syphilis and we can be the antidote/So holy f*cking sh*t, you’ve got to vote,” the celebrities sang over a pretty, piano-based melody.
11. Don Cheadle
In August, the Oscar-nominated actor unleashed a series of tweets against Trump, urging the then-candidate to “die in a grease fire” and suggesting that people of Trump’s “ilk” are responsible for violent conditions in Chicago.
12. Miley Cyrus
During the campaign, Cyrus complained that Trump would not stop saying “stupid ass sexist sh*t,” and later told her nearly 60 million Instagram followers to kiss her “ashtanga ass” if they weren’t voting for Clinton.
Bryan Cranston, Barbra Streisand, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Jon Stewart, Chelsea Handler, Samuel L. Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg and George Lopez all said they would move to various places outside the United States if Trump won, with the most popular proposed destination being Canada.
Of course after Trump won, some, including Schumer and Dunham, promptly copped out on their promises. Schumer said her vow to move to Spain earlier this year was a joke.
14. Celebrities compare Trump to Adolf Hitler.
Among those to make the comparison: Cher, John Legend, Spike Lee, Bill Maher, Louis C.K., Roger Waters, Whoopi Goldberg, Eva Longoria, Sarah Silverman, Billie Joe Armstrong, Maynard James Keenan, Russell Simmons, Ken Burns, and some cast members of Saturday Night Live. Silverman at least went all the way with the comparison, dressing as Hitler for an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show.
15. Wanda Sykes
“I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president. He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one,” Sykes said during her set at the Neely Foundation’s annual Comics Come Home fundraiser in Boston’s TD Garden.
16. Roger Waters
As the musician sang classics from his Pink Floyd days, images of Trump in a KKK hood, performing a Nazi salute and holding a sex toy like a rifle flashed on the massive LED screen behind him. The show also featured a giant inflatable pig soaring over the crowd with the phrase, “F*ck Trump and his wall” printed on it.
17. Lady Gaga
In the early morning hours after the votes came in, Gaga hopped on a sanitation truck outside Trump Tower in Manhattan to stage a micro-protest over the results and posted a photograph to Twitter.

19. Madonna
The pop icon made a last-ditch effort in October to bolster votes for Hillary Clinton by offering to perform oral sex on anyone who voted for the Democratic candidate.
20. Sarah Silverman
“For a lot of people, this is the Great Depression, but this time it’s emotional & physical,” she wrote. “Our bodies r breaking down w fear & rage.”
