The alternative media has, for good reason, slammed CNN time and again for fabricated news stories, untruths and left-leaning propaganda.
But the following opinion report from CNN’s Fareed Zakaria is a must-watch, as it touches on the very core of the purported tolerance among liberals.
As progressive Evergreen State College professor recently stated in an interview after demands by social justice warriors that he be fired for racism, “I am troubled by what this implies about the current state of the left.”
While America’s White Left believes their policies of socialism, cultural assimilation and outright disdain for anything other than their own righteous ideologies are the only way forward, Zakaria succinctly explains that it goes against the whole idea of what Liberalism is supposed to be.
American universities these days seem committed to every kind of diversity except for intellectual diversity… Conservative voices and views, already a besieged minority, are being silenced entirely… The campus thought police have gone after serious conservative thinkers like Heather McDonald and Charles Murray, as well as firebrands like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter…
Some were dis-invited… others booed interrupted and intimidated…
It’s strange that this is happening on college campuses that promise to give their undergraduates a liberal education… the word ‘liberal’ in this context has nothing to do with today’s partisan language… but refers instead to the Latin root ‘pertaining to liberty’
And at the heart of the liberal tradition in the Western world has been freedom of speech… from the beginning people understood that this meant protecting and listening to speech with which you disagreed.
Freedom of speech and thought is not just for just warm fuzzy ideas that we find comfortable… it’s for ideas that we find offensive.
There is also an anti-intellectualism on the left… an attitude of self righteousness that says we are so pure, so morally superior, we cannot bear to hear an idea with which we disagree.
Liberals think they are tolerant, but often they aren’t.
“Liberals think they are tolerant, but often, they aren’t,” argues @FareedZakaria https://t.co/0urfK127Z3

The left is so intolerant of other ideologies that it is only a matter of time before their refusal to accept differences among cultures, races and creeds fractures their entire chaotic movement.
We are literally at a point where wearing red, white and blue is considered blatant racism in some circles.
Soon, like rabid animals, their intolerance will be the very catalyst that drives them to turn on each other.

U.S. Army Says It Doesn’t Know What It Did With $1 Billion In Weapons – Mostly in Iraq
By: The AntiMedia Iraq — According to a government audit from 2016, through shoddy record-keeping, the United States Army has lost track of $1 billion worth of military material sent to Iraq. The equipment, intended to aid Iraqi forces, is part of the Iraq Train and Equip Fund, a program born out of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
“This audit provides a worrying insight into the U.S. Army’s flawed — and potentially dangerous — system for controlling millions of dollars’ worth of arms transfers to a hugely volatile region,” said Patrick Wilcken of Amnesty International in a statement.
The audit, conducted by the Department of Defense, found that hundreds of mortar rounds and Humvee armored vehicles and tens of thousands of assault rifles were unaccounted for. This latest audit echoes findings from a 2015 audit.
Highlighting the fact that the Middle East is — as the Washington Post puts it, “awash in U.S. weapons and equipment” — Wilcken says the audit brings to mind a troubling pattern that seems to plague the United States military:
“It makes for especially sobering reading given the long history of leakage of US arms to multiple armed groups committing atrocities in Iraq, including the armed group calling itself the Islamic State.”
Congress initially allocated $1.6 billion for the Iraq Train and Equip Fund. The 2017 NDAA is set to give the program an additional $920 million. For Wilcken, this latest audit should be a reminder to governments of the consequences of their current approach to the Middle East:
“This should be an urgent wake-up call for the US, and all countries supplying arms to Iraq, to urgently shore up checks and controls. Sending millions of dollars’ worth of arms into a black hole and hoping for the best is not a viable counter-terrorism strategy; it is just reckless.”

If you were working for an employer, such as the US Tax Payers, and lost $1 Billion in assets, do you think you would loose your job or go to Prison?
If you are in the US Military, its business as usual and we are supposed to call these incompetent scoundrels Heroes. NOT!

Since 1917, the press has expanded into the new avenues of radio, TV, the internet and of course Facebook. The (hidden) owners of the mainstream media still remain and continue to “shape” the news.
They Spoke The Truth
About The Lapdog Media…
“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interests, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the United States.
These 12 men worked the problem (Problem? What problem? Whose got a problem? JP Morgan and “interests”? Hmmmm) out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country.
They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.
The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month;
an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interest of the (…citizens? Nope! The US? No, not even our country BUT the) PURCHASERS.
(emphasis mine. Well, all for freedom of the press. Wonder why the founders thought that was so important anyway. But who cares about those guys, they are just a bunch of outdated old fogies anyway, right?)
This contract is in existence at the present time, and it accounts for the news columns of the daily press of the country.”
–Congressional Record of 1917, page 2949.
Interesting facts that make your stomach turn
It would have been nice if the Rense article had given a citation to the source so it could be found easily.
There were two different Congresses over a number of sessions that occurred in 1917, thus a number of separate volumes of the Congressional Record that it might have been in. Each volume is about half a gig in size, and you would have to go through all of them to find the quote.
I am currently downloading a fourth volume, and have yet to find a 1917 volume with a page 2949 in it.
Liberalism is a disease that is rotting the brains of leftist.
I had a pizza delivery guy (pretty fresh out of France, a nurse – and can’t speak English well enough to get a nursing job ( have any of you spoken to a nurse that can ?)
He loves the US but sees problems of unbelievable rudeness and the like permeating the society. He asked what I thought the problem was. I said, “liberalism, progressivism, socialism, Gimme Gimme Gimme” He smiled and agreed. That’s what he was trying to escape.
I speak English pretty well, have more than one degree – two Bachelors’ and a Masters’, and I’m a Registered Nurse – why on earth would you minimize an entire class of people who work goddamned hard to save guys like you. Nurses run smarter than average, which I assure you, you want to be true.
Nurses are the ones who care for you, wipe your ass, hold your child’s hand while they die, and do pretty much anything in the hospital that makes you well. Doctors? You don’t go to the hospital for doctoring care – you go for nursing care.
Perhaps you should wear a badge that says “Nurses suck” next time you end up there.
I am a retired nurse, and nurses work very, very hard….if they do their job. Nurses are the frontline of patient care, they are teachers that help patients and families understand about their illness, counselors and confidants, and patient advocates. Nurses are very caring people who step into whatever role when needed. It has been my experience that there are a lot of foreign nurses and doctors who do not speak English well at all. In fact I have refused to see a doctor that I could not understand when he spoke. Also perhaps, if I cannot understand him, how can I be sure he understands me? I’ve also, as a nurse, called a doctor if I could not decipher his written orders; I’m not going to try to figure out what he wrote and make a mistake. In this case a nurse has to be a diplomat because of some doctors’ egos. That’s why people need to be very careful not to make “blanket statements” about different groups of people. You always have good and bad in all groups. Keep up the good work Alan, because you ARE appreciated.
Waiting, my late wife was a nurse so I know where you’re coming from.
I was making a statement. One which he (the pizza guy ) stated. His English wasn’t strong enough. I meant no offense but maybe an engrish crass would be in order, Alan.
We vacationed in New Zealand a year ago, the place is flooded with young women from Europe. Families are seeing the writing on the wall, and are getting their sons and daughters the hell out of crumbling Europe.
New Zealand is loony leftist liberal, but contrary to the globalist agenda, they control immigration very tightly, they keep out Africans and Asians. Even so you need money if you want to immigrate. They had a small civil war a few decades ago with the indigenous Maori people. They have since set about to eliminate discrimination and allow equal opportunity. The Maori I met are not stupid people and are prospering.
Nice people in New Zealand, virtually no crime and New Zealanders want to keep it that way. It is a remote Island surrounded by viscous seas fed by storms and ocean currents from the Antarctic, so illegal immigration isn’t a threat.
Had the same experience in Australia. Just jaw-droppingly beautiful young women from Norway and Eastern Europe. They do let in Asians, but they tend to be beautiful and smart (doctors, scientists etc.). They did make the mistake a few years back of letting in Africans and Muslims, which has turned out as expected: terrorism and gang crime.
All countries need a ‘Musi-moat’ to keep them out. The secret is controlled immigration and very high standards. Commit crime, engage in terrorism? Out the door and on the next flight, either back home or to a dark site for some special treatment. Definitely do not do what they do in the UK, Canada etc. where they bow to Islam.
We went to Austraila 6 years ago. We loved New Zealand, if we had the opportunity to go back to one, it would Australia. When we were in Australia you couldn’t go to any of the famous beaches, they were overrun with Muslims gangs raping women and beating men. I think Austraila still has some of these problems, but have gotten better at keeping it out of the news.
I’ve never spoken to a nurse who couldn’t speak English.

Facebook is the (MAIN) news source for the majority of Millennials. No wonder the left is determined to “shape” and “censor” the news on Facebook.
from the Pew Research Center…
Facebook Top Source for Political News Among Millennials
Billionaire George Soros uses his money and influence to ‘manipulate’ politics, markets and the media.
George Soros is Funding Facebook’s “Third-Party Fact Checking” Organization Targeting “Fake News”
Anti-American George Soros trying to Control US Media – 5/27/11
“Every month, reporters, writers and bloggers at the many outlets he funds easily reach more than 330 million people around the globe.”
“Soros denies he has a media empire, despite spending easily more than $48 million on that empire and having top journalists from more than 30 major news organizations serving on the boards of groups he funds.”
Snopes Exposed–George Soros and Leftists Fund it
“Snopes receives funding from an undisclosed source. The source is undisclosed because Snopes refuses to disclose that source.
The Democratic Alliance, a funding channel for uber-Leftist (Marxist) Billionaires (George Soros etc.), direct funds to an “Internet Propaganda Arm” pushing these views. The Democratic Alliance has been reported to instruct Fundees NOT to disclose their funding source.”
Facebook’s Reliance on Liberal Fact-Checkers Means Your News Is About to Be Censored
“And Facebook, of course, is a private company that legally can do what it wants regarding its content.
But while Facebook legally can crack down on “fake news,” it’s unfortunate it has chosen to do so, particularly by relying on liberal organizations’ fact-checks as the arbiters.”
Facebook to Use Left-Wing Snopes, PolitiFact, and FactCheck.Org to Crush Conservative News Sites
“In fact, this effort has nothing whatever to do with making sure “news” is truthful.
All it really is, is just another attempt by liberals to re-instate their once indisputable status as the “gatekeepers” of the media, an assumption that created a screening process through which only their approved, liberal “news” could get past.”
thank you, mom…there’s a LOT of great reading there!
Thanks KY Mom.
Democrats are colluding with the media to create chaos
“They want to completely obliterate any sense that the Trump administration is making any progress on nothing.”
“They want to completely obliterate any sense that the Trump administration is making any progress on anything.”
Thanks KY Mom. I will be very impressed if Trump can get anything done while in office. He is despised by both Democrats and many Republicans. He has a very tough job ahead. I wish him good luck.
I agree Trump has a tough job ahead.
I hope the best for him and pray for guidance, wisdom and safety for him.
These are college students or college graduates……..supposedly people of higher learning and intellect? Who ever heard of the wearing of colors red white and blue as blatant racism? These are the colors of the USA’s flag, therefore considered patriotic colors. How is patriotism racist? It sounds more like these people are communist and against what the USA stands for, and they hate this country. I suggest these idiots go to another country that fits their belief system. This country has already established and fought many wars for our standards of belief; and we are willing to fight the communist and socialist again for what the Constitution sets down as laws of the land. We will see that our forefathers did not fight and die in vain. Believe that!
We didn’t stop them when they passed hate crime laws. Now they will pass hate speech laws. It’s not hate they are outlawing. It’s any opposition speech. Anything they disagree with is hate. Do you folks get it yet? They want you to think about the word hate, but while you’re doing that, they stop you from resisting their political and social agenda.
They can take ‘hate speech’ laws and stuff them. so libturds think they can tell me wtf to do? They need to make sure their insurance is paid up and kiss their families goodbye before they confront me.
It’s not white privilege they want to stop. There is no such thing as white privilege. They want to stop western civilization.
You are right, keep putting it out there.
Western civilization and White civilization are one and the same.
It’s not gay or transgender rights they want to protect. No man has a right to go into your daughters bathroom. It’s deconstructing western civilization that they want. See the pattern? Distract with outrageous claims, then while everyone is arguing the fake point, destroy the culture. It’s a way to silence us.
Fareed is another one of these loopy-eyed radical Islam apologists who flourished during the Obama years. Notice how so many organizations went from being run by guys who were preppy and white to being run by some dude with Abdullah or Muhammed in his name and a murky career background? It wasn’t because these guys were busty the IQ charts. If the government was really looking to hire smart and not white, we would have loads of guys and gals with names like Lee and Wing etc. running things.
Fareed Zakaria can kiss my white ass.
UCLA researchers find antibiotic-resistant genes in parks in four California cities
“The anxiety over antibiotic-resistant superbugs, which are responsible for 23,000 deaths a year in the United States, is likely to grow in California, following the recent discovery by UCLA researchers of high levels of antibiotic-resistant genes in parks in four cities.
Antibiotic-resistant genes, or ARGs, lead to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. And with antibiotic resistance rapidly increasing, worldwide they are expected to kill 10 million people annually by 2050—more than cancer.
In a study published today in the journal ACS Omega, researchers found that concentrations varied, but in general, air, soil and water from city parks in Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno and Bakersfield contained high quantities of the genes in bacteria cells.
The highest levels in tap water came from drinking fountains in San Diego and Los Angeles, catching researchers by surprise.
A previous study had uncovered high levels in air near concentrated animal feeding operations, so the biggest numbers were expected to come from Bakersfield and Fresno.”
Sobering news indeed on NK from Newsmax at http://www.newsmax.com/LarryBell/china-missile-pyongyang/2017/05/30/id/793033/:
“Adm. Bill Gortney, Commander of the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense reported in October of 2015, “We assess that they [North Korea] have the capability to reach the homeland with a nuclear weapon from a rocket.” Four months later, Pyongyang successfully launched a “Taepodong-3” missile with an estimated range of 6,300 miles. The shortest distance from North Korea to Los Angeles, Calif. is 5,800 miles.
Last year, in another breakthrough, North Korea successfully launched a “KN-11” rocket from a submarine, a feat only seven other countries have accomplished. This technology is particularly difficult to master because the missile must be forced out of the water by high pressure — and then, the engine must quickly ignite to initiate flight. Although North Korea presently has only one old submarine capable of firing such missiles, satellite images reveal more under construction.
On May 14 of this year, Pyongyang successfully launched a new intermediate-range surface-to-surface “Hwasong-12″ missile that is believed capable of reaching targets up to 2,800 miles away — including the U.S. islands of Guam and Midway…”
So, let me get this straight…. News media and Democrats colluding to create hysteria and confusion. And then blame it on Republicans and Conservatives and patriots? Ok,thank you KY Mom,now I am a lot more informed about the coming bloodbath this summer. May God have mercy on this country
Same people in government now as the guys training on targets of pregnant christian women,,, swamps still full
The thing is, this is a bigger deal to media pundits than it is to college administrators. Who really cares what a bunch of kids think anyway? They’ll learn the hard way.
I ran across this while watching a very good series documenting WW1.
very thought provoking…
How about hacking Soros’s bank account. what he can’t fund won’t hurt people.

This is who antifa is and they are nothing new.
Very good documentary on WW1
