The cultural and political divide between left and right has taken on a frightening scope. The left has decided that anyone who disagrees with it is a Nazi who does not deserve to live. This report is as graphic as it is revealing:
Video footage shows an anti-Trump agitator punching and knocking out a Trump supporter during a mini-riot at Portland Airport over the weekend. The clip shows anti-Trump protesters pushing and shoving their way into the airport aggressively as they yell “peace! peace!” A confrontation then quickly arises before one of the anti-Trump radicals punches a man from behind, knocking him out cold. The footage appears to show two anti-Trump protesters taking a swing at the same victim. It subsequently emerged that the victim, 39-year-old Grant Chisholm, a member of the Bible Believers group, was hit with “something metallic”. “They almost killed me tonight,” Chisholm told the Oregonian. While some of the anti-Trump protesters appear shocked at the violence and denounce it, others are heard quite clearly celebrating the attack. “That’s how you talk to a Nazi! That’s right!” screams one, before gloating, “Your boy got knocked out!”And who can forget the cowardly sneak attack on Richard Spencer? This jarring video has racked up almost two and a half million views. There's no telling how many were repulsed by it, and how many cheered on the faux ninja antifa who ran like a rabbit after sucker-punching Spencer. Yeah, you're a hero, punk. The evolving shape of political clashes in this country does not remind one of the times leading to the American Civil War, but of the Spanish Civil War, whose fault lines weren't as clear or contiguous. While certain regions of Spain tended to support one side or the other, it was ideology and religion that sparked the Spanish Civil War, making it the bloodiest civil war of the 20th century. Watching the two videos above, it would appear we're headed toward an internecine disaster.

"You’re probably seeing the best persuasion you will ever see from a new president. Instead of dribbling out one headline at a time, so the vultures and critics can focus their fire, Trump has flooded the playing field. You don’t know where to aim your outrage. He’s creating so many opportunities for disagreement that it’s mentally exhausting. Literally. He’s wearing down the critics, replacing their specific complaints with entire encyclopedias of complaints. And when Trump has created a hundred reasons to complain, do you know what impression will be left with the public? He sure got a lot done." - Scott Adams

A proposal in California has been submitted to the Secretary of State’s Office on Thursday campaigning for the state to secede from the United States. The proposed “Calexit” initiative would ask voters to repeal part of the state constitution that declares California an inseparable part of the U.S. A recent poll suggested that one in three California residents would support a possible secession from the U.S. due to their opposition to President Donald Trump. No mention has been made of the president in the proposal. If the proposal qualifies for the ballot and is approved by voters, it could be a step to a future vote on whether the state would break away from the rest of the nation.If Trump announced he needed volunteers to invade and hold California, do you think millennials will unplug their iPhones and enlist to keep California in the Union? Note to Dead-Enders: This isn't the late 19th century. The age of the Hegelian superstate is over. This is the age of devolution and the revival of historical nations. Ideology is dead as an organizing principle. Culture is replacing ideology at an accelerating pace. Get used to it.

Frankly, I never believed Trump would fulfill his campaign promises. Cynic that I've become, I figured he was only saying whatever it took to get elected. Plus, I couldn't imagine the Deep State would permit Trump or anybody else to throw a monkey wrench into their plans for demographic revolution. And while it's too soon to say Trump has delivered, he's certainly off to a good start:
President Trump signed executive actions Wednesday ordering the construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall and targeting sanctuary cities, following through on campaign promises that energized his base – and outraged his critics – during the 2016 campaign. The orders cover a range of immigration enforcement measures. The marquee item is a directive to pursue a southern border wall. “A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump declared after signing the measures, while speaking to employees at the Department of Homeland Security. “Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”Exactly. And of course, the Treason Lobby is up in arms. Scott Wiener of California tweeted: Today Trump declared war on immigrants. Trump is in for one hell of a fight w CA. We will have our immigrant neighbors' backs. Hey, Wiener, you're supposed to worry about Americans' backs, not the backs of invaders. Here's an idea: Why don't you secede?

Hillary represented the DC Establishment. The dirty tricks used to shove Bernie Sanders and his supporters to the sidelines will go down in history as one of the lowest points in the history of the Democratic Party. So it's only fitting that Sanders and his supporters get to play a little game of payback:
Why should we care what the leftist snowflakes in California do? As California sinks into the bottomless pit of third-world socialism, the Bear Republic will further distance itself from the rest of the country, especially the conservative South and West. The campaign toward independence will inevitably accelerate. As Reuters reports today, changing demographics is changing California's identity, making it distinctly different from the rest of America:Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) turned out en masse at ordinarily sleepy party caucuses earlier this month, electing a slate of delegates who could be poised to take over the largest Democratic Party organization outside of Washington, D.C. As final vote totals trickled in, Sanders backers claimed to have elected more than 650 delegates out of 1,120 available seats chosen at this month’s caucuses. Those delegates will choose the next state Democratic Party chairman, along with other party officials. Sanders supporters say they hope to change the very nature of the Democratic Party. ... California’s legislature has been at the vanguard of some of the most liberal policy programs in the nation, on everything from climate change to immigrant rights. Sanders supporters hope to leverage their newfound power to convince Democratic majorities in the state Assembly and state Senate to embrace even more aggressive progressive positions.
In Lodi, California, Democratic party activist Bruce Rubly, who told Reuters/Ipsos pollsters that he "strongly supported" California secession, said he thinks it could happen if Trump and the Republicans who dominate the U.S. Congress impose conservative policies on such issues as the environment, immigration and marijuana legalization. "There's a whole series of things that are going to get Californians riled up," said Rubly, 68. "And if he pushes those buttons in the wrong way, there's going to be hell to pay."In 2014, only 20% of Californians supported secession; today 32% would vote to withdraw from the DC Empire. Where can I send my donation to the Free California Fund?

And if you don't believe it, check out this op-ed from Andrew Cuomo, the liberal governor of New York:
We are entering a new political era in which women across the country may feel that their reproductive rights will be threatened, and all states -- not just New York -- will have an opportunity to take the lead in improving the status of women through their respective legislatures. As we are doing in New York, governors and state legislatures now have the opportunity and the duty, through executive orders and legislation, to protect reproductive rights, close the wage gap and combat sexual violence.Cuomo then lists all the wonderful progressive initiatives he and the New York legislature passed. And in case you don't see where this is headed, Cuomo makes it crystal clear in this forceful conclusion:
It is time for states to use the legal powers they have to protect the rights of all their constituents, including the many women marching Saturday for equality.The legacy of Thomas Jefferson, J.C. Calhoun, and Sam Ervin is alive and making history. Soon it will be re-drawing the map.
Peggy Noonan looks at the Trump victory and sees fault lines in the DC Empire:
The Trump Wars of the past 18 months do not now go away. Now it becomes the Trump Civil War, every day, with Democrats trying to get rid of him and half the country pushing back. To reduce it to the essentials: As long as Mr. Trump’s party holds the House, it will be a standoff. If the Democrats take the House, they will move to oust him. Because we are divided. We are two nations, maybe more. Normally a new president has someone backing him up, someone publicly behind him. Mr. Obama had the mainstream media—the big broadcast networks, big newspapers, activists and intellectuals, pundits and columnists of the left—the whole shebang. He had a unified, passionate party. Mr. Trump in comparison has almost nothing. The mainstream legacy media oppose him, even hate him, and will not let up. The columnists, thinkers and magazines of the right were mostly NeverTrump; some came reluctantly to support him. His party is split or splitting. The new president has gradations of sympathy, respect or support from exactly one cable news channel, and some websites. He really has no one but those who voted for him.There are indeed several nations within the quickly crumbling USA. Already there are serious secessionist movements in several states and regions, including California, Texas, and now Oklahoma. The mindless fury displayed this weekend by the far-left rioters opposed to the Trump presidency illustrates just how divided the country is. With that kind of venomous hatred against traditional America, no accommodation or compromise is possible. It's time to recognize reality and go our separate ways. Peacefully -- while we can.

From CNS News:
The Anti-Capitalist Anti-Fascist Bloc’s DisruptJ20 Inauguration protest turned violent Friday morning as protestors gathered at Logan Circle in D.C. and marched down 13th Street. ... Footage shot by MRC Culture and CNSNews.com shows protestors vandalizing local businesses, destroying a limousine with hammers, spray-painting on walls and windows, smashing kiosks, and chanting “no cops, no borders, fight law and order.” The group’s website called for “everyone who opposes fascism and capitalism to join together and demonstrate how to prevent Trump and his cronies from implementing their program. Let’s bring a vision of a better world to Washington, D.C.”Yeah. The vision of the world these cowardly vandals show in the video is a nightmare.
Are Mexicans pouring into California immigrants who only want to assimilate into the existing culture and become good Americans? Or are they invaders? Read this account of a city council meeting in Rialto, California, and decide for yourself:
An official for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California mocked elderly white people at a city council meeting last week, telling them they had “five years left.” Rialto, California, held a regularly scheduled city council meeting last Tuesday after a city councilman apologized for planning an event to discuss the possibility of Rialto becoming a “sanctuary city.” Luis Nolasco, a community engagement and policy advocate for the ACLU of Southern California, stood up to speak at the city council meeting and attacked many of the white people present, saying they are not actual residents of Rialto. Nolasco said, “This is my town.”Yes, Rialto is his town, not yours. Nolasco is merely repeating the same statement made by Mario Obledo, a co-founder of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and the La Raza Lawyers, who once proclaimed, "California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave." Immigration is what you get when newcomers follow the law and enter a country intending to adapt to the ways of their new country. Demographic displacement results from invasion by conquerors. We can sympathize with the doomed Whites in Rialto, California, but remember, as California goes, so goes the nation. And day by day, both are going, going ... gone.

The District of Columbia is Mordor come to life. Like its fictional counterpart, it is the source of much evil in the world. I've been arguing that for a long time (see here and here, for example). Now Germany's deputy chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, in an attempt to defend Angela Merkel, says the real problem is DC's policy of endless war against Muslims in the Middle East:
Responding to Trump’s comments that Merkel had made an “utterly catastrophic mistake by letting all these illegals into the country”, [German deputy chancellor] Gabriel said the increase in the number of people fleeing the Middle East to seek asylum in Europe had partially been a result of US-led wars destabilising the region. “There is a link between America’s flawed interventionist policy, especially the Iraq war, and the refugee crisis, that’s why my advice would be that we shouldn’t tell each other what we have done right or wrong, but that we look into establishing peace in that region and do everything to make sure people can find a home there again,” Gabriel said.Think how much better off the world will be when the steam inevitably runs out of the Evil Empire.

Literally. Open borders and international travel have created a global petri dish that's breediing all sorts of virulent and antibiotic-resistant bacteria:
A US woman has died from an infection that was resistant to all 26 available antibiotics, health officials said this week, raising new concerns about the rise of dangerous superbugs. The woman, who was in her 70s, died in Nevada in September, and had recently been hospitalized in India with fractured leg bones, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Experts said she had been treated repeatedly in India during the last two years for a femur fracture and hip problems, most recently in June 2016. ... Once the bacteria was identified in Nevada, the patient was isolated to prevent the infection from spreading in the hospital. ... According to Nick Thomson, leader of the bacterial genomics and evolution group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in England, this bacteria is likely to become more and more resistant. "The report highlights international travel and treatment overseas as a feature in the introduction of this pan-resistant isolate into the USA," he said.Read that last sentence again and ask yourself if a borderless world is really a good idea.
I couldn't help but roll my eyes in disbelief when this story first came out. Really now: a kindergarterner was abused in class because he was Muslim? It was so over-the-top and so obviously contrived that only public school officials and civil rights activists could believe it. I mean really, we're supposed to believe a PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER, the most politically correct of all creatures, assaulted a 5 year old because he was Muslim? Please. Fortunately, police were able to clear the accused teacher:
Police found no evidence to confirm a November report that a teacher bullied and assaulted a Muslim kindergartener at David Cox Road Elementary, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools reported Friday. Principal Celeste Spears-Ellis notified parents that the accused teacher has returned to the classroom after the District Attorney’s Office found “no evidence of an assault other than the complainant’s report” and no grounds for criminal charges. The incident made national news in November when the Council on American-Islamic Rights wrote to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction alleging that the teacher “continuously harassed and recently assaulted” a 5-year-old boy in her class. The letter, dated Nov. 21, said the teacher had grabbed the boy by the neck and choked him on Nov. 16. It said she had also failed to prevent classmates from bullying the boy and forced him to carry a large backpack filled with textbooks and headphonesBut the story wasn't too over-the-top for the Council on American-Islamic Rights, which has mutated into a jittery, bellicose group just as capable as the NAACP of shrill tantrums and over-rehearsed paranoia. Guess this little incident should burst their credibility. But do you think the corporate media will probe the next such report? Do they EVER learn? Welcome to our glorious multicultural future, with every ethnic group clamoring to be recognized as an oppressed minority.

In case anyone out there imagined leftists were pro-freedom, pro-democracy, blah, blah, blah, take a look at Rosie O'Donnell's dream scenario for stopping Donald Trump:
Donald Trump ripped Rosie O’Donnell during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, saying that she was the only woman about whom he had ever made disparaging comments. Now, with less than 10 days until Trump takes the oath of office, O’Donnell says that she’d support “martial law” in order to delay his inauguration. “FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS ‘CLEARED’ OF ALL CHARGES,” O’Donnell wrote in response to a Twitter user who suggested the U.S. military take control of the government until the president-elect can prove he has no financial ties to Russia. I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS "CLEARED" OF ALL CHARGES https://t.co/fUn8FZ8RTj — ROSIE (@Rosie) January 12, 2017Where exactly is the provision in the Constitution for imposing martial law? And is there a sub-section specifying how Hollywood actors have that authority? Beats me -- but then, I've never been able to find the amendment that gives illegal aliens the right to ignore US borders, or for people claiming they're "transgender" getting the power to nullify both local laws and social mores.

Heather Mac Donald, the most courageous and insightful analyst of our age, offers a stunning and eye-opening interpretation of the significance of the Chicago torture story. Mac Donald argues that the official racial narrative in this country is a stew of platitudes and hallucinations. Ta-Nehesi Coates exemplifies and parrots that narrative, which maintains that all the problems in the Black community are the fault of Whites, whose sole aim is to oppress and murder "black bodies." That's Coates's opinion, an opinion shared by all right-thinking commentators. But the facts, which Mac Donald amply provides, tell a different story:
Black Lives Matter ideology is just a more in-your-face manifestation of the Coatesian conceit that blacks are living in a system determined to destroy them. The Chicago Black Lives Matter chapter embraces the motto “Stop killing us,” aimed at the Chicago Police Department. It chants: “CPD, KKK: How many children did you kill today?” (The answer is: Virtually none. Last year, over 3,400 people in Chicago were shot, overwhelmingly black. Victims included 24 children 12 years of age or younger. The Chicago cops shot 25 people, virtually all armed and dangerous, or .6 percent of the total.)As gruesome as the Chicago torture video is, Mac Donald's interpretation is even more jarring -- and critical, if we are to change the suicidal path American policymakers have so foolishly chosen.

Ann Coulter tears into the SPLC's vacuous claims about a rash of hate crimes against minorities since the election. As you'd expect, Ann takes no prisoners while deploying the cold, hard facts against the SPLC's breathless (but profitable) fearmongering:
Has there been one (1) documented hate crime committed by white people against any hue in the Rainbow Coalition since Nov. 8? That’s out of the 9,456,723 hate crimes alleged by America’s leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is to “hate” what Rolling Stone is to rape. It is the biggest peddler of fantasies since Walt Disney. I’ve read through dozens of SPLC “hate crimes” and they are all lies. The Muslim girls in particular seem to be very spirited liars. Since the election, there have been vivid stories from across the nation of Trump supporters tearing off Muslim girls’ hijabs — at the University of Michigan (since retracted), Louisiana State University (also retracted), San Diego State University (that too was retracted), the New York City subway (again: retracted), and the University of New Mexico (no witnesses, won’t reveal attacker’s name or report the incident for investigation).The bizarre thing about this alleged wave of anti-minority hate crimes is that these minorities are portrayed as defenseless, vulnerable saints who are brutalized by bullying, all-powerful Whites. In fact, the current climate is so tilted against Whites and for minorities that a professor at a major university can publicly advocate "white genocide" and defenders will rise up in his defense in the name of academic freedom. Coulter concludes her article with a scathing look at just how far-fetched most of the SPLC's claims really are -- something to keep in mind as the media issues more such reports. And we know they will. If you want to read about a REAL hate crime, check out this incident from Chicago:
Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!” Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding the young white man hostage.Okay, SPLC, there's the genuine article. Fire up your press kits and let the releases fly!

The Southern Poverty Law Center regularly beats the drums whenever it detects "hate," but it REALLY works itself into a lather when it uncovers anything that remotely smacks of "anti-Semitism." So I'm sure the SPLC's flying monkeys will take to the skies and unleash an all-out assault against those foul miscreants the Simon Wiesenthal Center has determined are responsible for THE WORST anti-Semitic incident of 2016:
The US abstention from a recent vote against Israeli settlements at the UN Security Council topped the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s annual list released Tuesday of the 10 worst outbreaks of Jew-hatred and anti-Israel incidents. The Jewish human rights organization ranked the Obama administration’s move as the top case, charging that it erased Jewish history.Forget such pikers as David Irving, the American Nazi Party, or the laughably inept and nearly extinct KKK. No, it's the Obama administration and its supporters who have committed the worst attack on Jews in a year full of shock and violence. Any second now, the SPLC will issue a press release condemning the Democratic Party as a hate group. Here it comes -- wait for it ...
