Disentangling, disconfirming and divulging the most revisionist, eugenicist and Marxist fakeries in the week’s fake news.
No, Jefferson never held an iftar dinner
The mainstream media lost its collective mind after realizing that Ramadan – Islam’s holy month – was concluding without President Donald Trump hosting an iftar dinner at the White House, claiming it was a break from long-standing tradition from previous presidents.
Proving they were more concerned over whether Trump “properly” recognized Ramadan than over the hundreds of people killed an injured in Ramadan terror attacks, several media outlets – including the always fake Washington Post — went so far as to write that the tradition of hosting an iftar went all the way back to Thomas Jefferson and was therefore more than 200 years in the making.
While Jefferson did host a Muslim envoy and he did push the start time for a state dinner back to accommodate him, the occasion was not a celebration of Ramadan or iftar. There is no evidence that Jefferson made any other accommodation for the envoy.
After the USS Constitution captured Tunisian vessels attempting to run a blockade by American ships at Tripoli that had been instituted in response to the Barbary pirate attacks on American shipping, Tunisia sent Sidi Soliman Mellimelli to negotiate for restitution and to barter for tribute.
Mellimelli arrived at the Washington Naval Yard on November 30, 1805 to much fanfare and curiosity. Jefferson scheduled a dinner for December 9 with Mellimelli to begin at the customary time of “half after three,” but changed it to “precisely at sunset” upon learning that Mellimelli couldn’t dine until later because of Ramadan.
The actual first iftar dinner at the White House was held by Bill Clinton – and it was planned by Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, whose mother was a prominent official in the women’s division of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization – and was a politically-motivated bit of Muslim pandering.
George W. Bush continued the tradition of pandering to Muslims in order to give himself cover as he waged war on some Muslims by arming others as he prosecuted the so-called “War on Terror,” which as we now know had nothing to do with “terror” and everything to do with propping up the petrodollar and the military-industrial complex and ensuring the dominance of Saudi Arabia and Israel in the Middle East on behalf of the globalists and Zionists.
And of course, Barack Obama, a closet Muslim himself, continued it. Obama was one of the first to spout the lie about Jefferson and iftar, uttering that falsehood back in 2012, saying:
“As I’ve noted before, Thomas Jefferson once held a sunset dinner here with an envoy from Tunisia — perhaps the first iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.”
White supremacy stands in the way blacks getting more abortions… or something
I told you last week that feminism is nothing more than man-loathing socialism. It’s also, apparently, white- and self-loathing socialism.
The radical feminist blog Medusa Magazine (they say they embrace the term) last week called for the destruction of “the white family unit” through the abortion of all white babies.
In a genocidal screed laced with psychobabble, identity politics and eugenics, “author” Nicole Valentine — who may or may not be a white woman married to a black man and have a biracial child — blamed white families for all the world’s ills and called for their removal. And while abortions are good, she says, the appeal to abortions as having a “Constitutional” construct (they do not) reinforces white supremacy. “In fact, Constitutionality is often synonymous with ‘exclusively beneficial to the white race,” she writes, conveniently omitting the 13th and 14th Amendments, the Civil Rights Act, racial quota laws, Brown v. Board of Education, etc., etc.
Further, she writes:
[T]he notion of “choice” in abortion is inherently white supremacist and ableist. Women of color do not often have the same privilege to choose termination as do white women. For social, religious, economic, and ethical reasons, women of color may experience roadblocks on the path to body autonomy that white women would never be forced to confront due to their privilege of being born in a white supremacist society that continually looks out for their needs. Under present circumstances, women of color simply do not have the absolute choice when it comes to their bodies. It is time to stop pretending that they stand on equal footing with white women, when it has been proven that the embedded systems of white supremacy do not act impartially to all women. Because white supremacy prevents women of color from their freedom to choose, we must level the playing field by other means.
Ms. Valentine conveniently also overlooks the fact that although blacks make upon 13.3 percent of the U.S. population, black women have 35.6 percent of all abortions, almost equaling the percent of white abortions (37.3 percent) even though whites make up 76.9 percent of the population. Black women abort babies at rate of 420 per 1,000 live births.
Furthermore, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion mill, was founded by Margaret Sanger, a longtime sponsor and board member of the American Eugenics Society. Sanger, in a 1925 essay titled “The Need of Birth Control in America,” wrote:
Such human weeds [defined by her in published writings alternately as morons/defectives, delinquents/misfits/the maladjusted, and dependents/the poor] clog up the path, drain up the energies and the resources of this little earth. We must clear the way for a better world, we must cultivate our garden.
To “clear the way” Sanger wanted to segregate and neuter those deemed by her and society to be racially or socially undesirable, and for Sanger and her ilk, that included blacks.
Planned Parenthood has continued with this path to this day. Reports have found that Planned Parenthood places its abortion clinics near neighborhoods with inordinately high numbers of blacks and Hispanics. The Cincinnati-based Life Issues Institute determined that 79 percent of the organization’s surgical abortion facilities are within walking distance of predominately black or Hispanic neighborhoods. So there are more than ample opportunities for black women to “choose,” and they do so in mind-boggling numbers.
And let’s just overlook the fact that had Ms. Valentine written that any other race or creed other than whites should be destroyed, she would be accused of “hate speech,” and drummed out of society via Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere. But she’d be right at home in the American Eugenics Society.
Repealing Obamacare won’t result in mass die-offs
Despite what Communist loons like Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Ezra Levin tell you, repealing Obamcare won’t result in mass death, whether the bad and Orwellian-named Republican Better Care “repeal bill” passes or not.
Obamacare is a Marxist health insurance/government subsidized health insurance bill. It has nothing to do with health care… except to the extent that it makes it more difficult for doctors to “practice” medicine and makes actually getting health care more expensive and more difficult.
In fact, studies show that Obamacare is responsible in the exponential growth of opioid addictions and deaths.
There are no ‘drastic cuts’ to Medicare in the GOP ‘repeal’ bill, but there should be
The above-mentioned communist loons and the MSM have shouted loud and long that the Republicans’ phony Obamacare repeal bill makes “drastic cuts” to Medicaid spending. Only in the District of Criminals is a reduction in projected spending a cut.
What the GOP bill does is it reduces the amount of annual Medicaid increases called for in Obamacare by a mere 26 percent over the course of the next 10 years. That’s less than a 3 percent reduction per year in increases, not in actual spending. Big difference.
