Michael Ingmire: An Open Letter to Rolling Stone Publisher, Jann S. Wenner

In closing, it is not too late to reconsider your endorsement of Hillary Clinton as President. Wisdom can be achieved by research and experience. I urge you to practice some objective journalism and do your homework. Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be President of these yet to be United States.

To Jann S. Wenner, Publisher of Rolling Stone magazine:

Dear Mr. Wenner:

My name is Michael Ingmire. I am the Uncle, by marriage, of Benghazi murder victim Sean Smith. I was disheartened and angry by your recent editorial, “Hillary Clinton for President” (RS 1258, March 23, 2016), proposing Hillary Clinton as “the clear and urgent choice” to become President of the United States for the 2016 election.

Before I explain my anger I want to quote the American songwriter, Johnny Mercer, and “accentuate the positive.”

Looking back at the age of 58, I can objectively see that Rolling Stone magazine was a seminal source of information when I was starting out as a musician. The 1970 John Lennon interviews, the articles about various innovative Blues, Jazz, and Rock musicians in 1960’s and 1970’s helped shape my rhythmic soul and musical taste. When musicians have passed your obituary tributes have always been well written and historically accurate. In addition, the writing and work of such Rolling Stone writers as Hunter S. Thompson, Ralph J. Gleason, Robert Palmer, and Cameron Crowe, among others, broadened my horizons as a music historian and as a political observer. For that, I thank you.

But Jann, somewhere in the mid-1980’s, you lost me as a consistent reader. More pages were allotted to a pastiche of ad space and, unfortunately, the music became more corporate and less interesting. Additionally, a movement was started in your magazine towards less and less objective journalism and more and more a promotion of some oddly bent agenda. As the years passed the pursuit of a biased agenda culminated in the strange love dance that you seem to have with President Barack Obama and the members of his administration.

Multiculturalism trumps protecting women from rape by Dennis Prager

German sensitivity to Islamophobia just latest example of moral distortion.

Since the scores of New Year’s Eve sexual attacks on German women by hundreds of men identified as Arab or North African, the left in Germany has faced a dilemma: which to fight for first – women’s human rights or multiculturalism?

This was the same dilemma that faced British authorities between 1997 and 2013. During those six years at least 1,400 girls from the age of 11 in just one English city (Rotherham, population 275,000) were raped by gangs of men, nearly all of whom were immigrants (mostly from Pakistan) or their sons.

But British authorities kept silent. Why?

In 2014, the reason finally was revealed: The perpetrators were Muslim, and British authorities were therefore afraid to publicize – or often even investigate – the crimes. They feared being branded Islamophobic and racist. Politicians on the left and right acknowledged this fact.

As I wrote in a column in 2014:

“In 2002, a Labor Party MP from nearby Keighley, Ann Cryer, complained to the police about ‘young Asian lads’ raping girls in her constituency. In her words, she ‘was shunned by elements of her party.’ And note, that as is demanded by the left in the U.K., she didn’t even mention that the rapists were Pakistani, lest Muslims be blamed for this evil. They were ‘Asian lads.’”

Out with ‘Redskins’ — and everything else!

This is liberalism’s dilemma: There are so many things to be offended by, and so little time to agonize about each.

Autumn, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, also is the time for The Post and other sensitivity auditors to get back on — if they will pardon the expression — the warpath against the name of the Washington Redskins. The niceness police at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office have won court approval of their decision that the team’s name “may disparage” Native Americans. We have a new national passion for moral and historical hygiene, a determination to scrub away remembrances of unpleasant things, such as the name Oklahoma, which is a compound of two Choctaw words meaning “red” and “people.”

Connecticut’s state Democratic Party has leapt into the vanguard of this movement, vowing to sin no more: Never again will it have a Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner. Connecticut Democrats shall still dine to celebrate their party’s pedigree but shall not sully the occasions by mentioning the names of two slave owners. Because Jefferson-Jackson Day dinners have long been liturgical events for Democrats nationwide, now begins an entertaining scramble by states’ parties — Georgia’s, Missouri’s, Iowa’s, New Hampshire’s, and Maine’s already have taken penitential actions — to escape guilt by association with the third and seventh presidents.

Federal Reserved CALLED OUT at Jackson Hole Summit

The Jackson Hole Summit, hosted by the American Principles Project, was held August 27-29 in the beautiful and scenic resort town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Among the speakers were 7 PhDs, 2 members from the British House Commons, 1 member from our Congress, and more. According to Steve Lonegan, Director of Monetary Policy at American Principles Project, the goal of the American Principles Project’s Jackson Hole Summit was to “return the ‘Currency Debate’ into the public arena and to educate Americans on the impact of the Federal Reserve System “discretionary” policies on the economy – and our liberty.”

“It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” – Henry Ford.

Dr. Gina on Fox Business: “Donald Trump is Creating a Dialogue I Have Never Seen in Politics” (Video)

“Can you name another person’s slogan? We all know his: Making America Great Again. America wants jobs, Charles, they believe he (Donald Trump) can create those. He puts on a hat, goes out on the border and demonstrates that. And Americans are eating this up, they’re cheering at their televisions for the first time in a long time.” Dr. Gina Loudon

Is America In Decline? by Laura Rambeau Lee

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

If you do not believe America is in decline, you might be one of the millions of illegal immigrants receiving free housing, clothes, schooling for your children, and medical care thanks to the benevolence of President Barack Hussein Obama. You know to whom I am referring… Those who left the hell hole of whatever failed socialist or communist country of their birth because their government could no longer provide even the most meager items needed to survive. They find the promise of abundance in America to be worth every sacrifice, knowing just being able to cross our border undetected is all they need to do to reap benefits truly needy American citizens can only dream about.

Yes, America is in decline. There is going to have to be a massive shift in the American population and their understanding of what is really going on if we are to have any hope of reversing the fundamental transformation of America. There has been ongoing and relentless indoctrination of our youth into believing all of the evils of the world are a result of the policies and actions of America. Education, particularly American History, has been perverted to fixate on negative events as if isolated from the rest of the world and human civilization.

#NoMorein16!

In closing, Dennis says, “I don’t see any difference between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, except for pantsuits! We want everybody running the ?#?NoMorein16? hashtags on Twitter. No more. We’re not voting for you anymore if you run a big government squish!”

A new initiative to encourage voters to select only #conservative political candidates who uphold those values, #NoMorein16!, will start on Monday, March 23rd. Spearheaded by Texas-based Tea Party activist Phillip Dennis and the conservative blogosphere, #NoMorein16 is a message to fellow Republican voters who would consider voting for Jeb Bush or other non-conservative GOP Presidential candidates.

“I’ve been mad at the Republicans for a long time,” says Dennis. “Republicans [in the U.S. House of Representatives] vote conservative when it’s safe to do so. Behind closed doors, you’re going to see them raise the debt limit, support cromnibus, and amnesty, so that’s where this idea came from.

I’m not going to vote for a Romney or a McCain…they no longer get my vote by virtue of not being Democrat!” explains Dennis. “We have another party that‘s just a little less socialist than the other. When’s the last time you heard the Republicans really talk about repealing Obama Care?

Dennis goes on to explain that there are too many faux Republicans in elected office. “There’s a lot of Republicans tired of voting for the little bit better option than the Democrats. Every time the Republicans run a big government squish, when they listen to Karl Rove, we lose. Estimates 3 million fiscal conservatives stayed home instead of voting for Romney [in 2012].

Daniel Greenfield: Let’s Laugh At Islam

“What we believe is a war, is merely a minor skirmish in a global conquest. While we spend billions of dollars and thousands of lives to stabilize a single Muslim country, dozens of non-Muslim countries including our own are being destabilized day by day. The true war against Islam is not a military war, it is a cultural war.”

“Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.” Mark Twain

Anyone who seriously believed after 9/11 that victory against the ongoing Islamic conquest would be accomplished by military force has by now been steadily disabused of that illusion after over a decade of political correctness, passivity and misguided campaigns to bring democracy to the Muslim world.

The war against Islam is not going to be won with guns or bombs. Force is merely the final solution to settling conflicts but Islam’s violence is for now only the tip of the iceberg of a much larger campaign to make the world into an Islamic domain.

While we fight with police actions and holding elections, Islamists are seizing control of governments by force or by democratic elections. They are conquering African nations and staging civil wars in pacific ones. They are importing millions of Muslims to Europe and America as Europe’s ‘Palestinians’ for a coming European Intifada. They are rewriting history to claim that Arab explorers originally discovered America and Australia giving them claim to the land. They are aggressively evangelizing hundreds of thousands a year to convert to Islam through misleading claims and marriages of Western women to Muslim men.

Did the Book “The New Jim Crow” Discredit Oprah Winfrey‘s Hard Work?

Kimberly Klacik writes, “If Michelle Alexander would like to write a book on an epidemic crippling black communities, I suggest researching families that have successfully taken advantage of government assistance for generations.”

If we were to ask Oprah Winfrey about her journey to success, do you think she would agree with the author of “The New Jim Crow”, Michelle Alexander, that she defied odds? It seems Oprah Winfrey may have simply worked hard and didn’t use the color of her skin as an excuse. So frequently, self proclaimed civil rights leaders interject race in an unfortunate situation between a black and a white. Could it be possible that situations similar to the Michael Brown case could have been caused by the perfect storm? If Officer Wilson had better training, rather than shooting to kill, and Michael Brown did not feel entitled to reach for an officer’s gun, he may be alive today.

Michelle Alexander is an associate professor of law at Ohio State University, a civil rights advocate and a writer. Alexander must have defied odds as well when she graduated from Stanford Law and Vanderbilt University. In her book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Alexander claims that mass imprisonment’s true targets are blacks, and that incarcerated whites are ‘collateral damage.’ Alexander argues that the “War on Drugs” has had a devastating impact on inner city African American communities, on a scale entirely out of proportion to the actual dimensions of criminal activity taking place within these communities.
