Mueller Probe Biggest Scam In American History & Republicans Are ‘Spineless (video, left),’ Lou Dobbs, Fox Business
CS Commentary: We were Carly supporters before we were Trump supporters, and we like her. But, the present round of tariffs has no comparison to Smoot Hawley (see Top 5 Reasons for Current Market Correction). In addition, there is no ‘free trade’ currently, ‘without the tariffs’ (since Europe, China and other nations have unilaterally been putting tariffs on US products for decades). To pretend like there is, is ludicrous. Of course, the Chinese are currently at the table because our tariffs are hurting and will hurt their economy. It is hard to know where Carly is coming from with this argument – another run for President in 2020, perhaps? For a more sane view on Trump’s policies, see The Game Theory Analysis Of Trump’s Tariff Strategy (video, left), Fox Business

Also see, How The War With Islam Shaped And Defined Us, Thomas Lifson, American Thinker
Europe’s Jew Hatred – And Ours, Bari Weiss, NY Times
CS Commentary: Remember, this is the ultra-liberal NY Times, so the statement that the far right and ‘some Donald Trump supporters’ are the most anti-Semitic American faction and the ‘biggest threat’ is almost laughable. We would love to see the factual information on that one, considering that BDS, CAIR, most American Jews themselves, and everyone on the radical left could be easily accused of consistent anti-Semitic statements and behavior. She also makes the asinine statement that “Islamism is far less of a threat in the United States than in Europe.” That is, unless you include that the FBI are following over 15 Muslim terrorists in every state and Hezbollah is known to have inactive cells spread around America. To her credit she admits, “We Jews are most [as, in a biased way] attuned to the anti-Semitism of the far right.” You think? Europe and America are starting to look scarily like Europe/Germany in the 1920’s and early 1930’s – due to the neo-fascism of the far-left and far-right. Anyone who has read Shirer’s The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich, or Evan’s follow-up and updated trilogy can recognize the signs. Otherwise, an informative, enlightening article.

Exclusive Poll: Most Trusted News Anchors, Jeremy Barr, Hollywood Reporter
CS Commentary: Here’s a poll that explains a lot. Americans still don’t get that trusting NBC and CNN anchors means that they are buying into leftist propaganda – not only in presentation, but in selection of the news topics. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams at Fox News score highest in the ‘Some trust’ category. Hmm.

Quotes Of The Month:
“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them stronger than God? Oh, be not weary of well-doing! Go on, in the name of God and in the power of His might, till even American slavery shall vanish away before it.” ~ John Wesley, on his deathbed, writing to William Wilberforce, ultimately responsible for changing Britain’s slave laws
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” – Jim Elliot, one of five Christian missionaries martyred in Ecuador in 1956
