    What I'd like to talk about, actually, for those of you who survived last night -- I see a few of us have probably just gone into a hot tub and opened our veins after the two speakers last night. They were terrific, by the way. They were absolutely great. You can't correct a problem unless you know what the problem is. You can't adjust your strategy if you don't know what your objective is and especially the comments we heard about the future of the Republican Party in terms of the ethnic breakdown is really important. That line, "We just need more Republicans," is the line. It's the line. So, how do we do that?

    Well as it turns out, I got an offer to speak at a Jewish high school two days ago, on my birthday, and it was in Palo Alto. So you've got to figure private Jewish high school kids in Palo Alto is going to be a pretty liberal crowd. And sure enough, it was. I had mentioned earlier, many years earlier, in terms of messaging, that we should start thinking about new ways to message this thing, and I'm sure you've heard me tell the story that there was a young lady who asked me – she wanted to start a Tea Party group at her school – and she said, what should she call it? And I said, "For God's sake, don't call it the Tea Party. That would be a catastrophic mistake. Call it the Rebel Alliance. Don't tell anybody what it's about. Call it the Rebel Alliance and see who shows up." Well sure enough, these two kids at this high school up in Palo Alto started a group called the Rebel Alliance. And there's only about five or six conservatives in the whole school, but they called themselves the Rebel Alliance, and they went further than that. They actually went out and raised the money for me to come up there because obviously I don't speak for free. I get my $100.00 honorarium and $20.00 per diem, which Mike Finch talk me down to $17.50, the miserable cheap son of a -- But, it was a really interesting chance to go up there, and so I want to tell you about that trip, because I learned about them and I learned a lot about how we can not only make messaging effective for millenials, but I think you could make the case that this is not a bad way to make messaging effective for the general population.

    When it was asked what I wanted to talk about, the Rabbi wanted to talk to me for a while, and I said, "Listen, if I come up and do my regular dog and pony show all of the Progressives in the audience, which is most of them, are just going to roll their eyes and they're going to snort and they're going to do their 'I'm better than you thing and boy, I have so many ways I could destroy you, but I can't, because you're talking.'" So I said, "I'll tell you what. Let's just do it this way. I'm just going to go up there. I'll do five minutes on what I believe. That's all I'm going to do. Here's what I believe. These are the things I believe in and then let's make the whole hour questions and answers. That way I get to be the victim and they get to be the attackers and at least they're listening, because they're engaged. They're throwing the darts, not receiving them, and I'm not afraid of these kids. I'm afraid of circus carnies, but I'm not afraid of these kids."

    David Horowitz on the Larry Elder Show

    Accused by UCLA officials of "intimidation" for posting anti-BDS flyers.

    Kang’s letter smeared Horowitz as a “provocateur” who “put up hostile posters accusing two student organizations — the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) — of being murderers and terrorists.” This is a lie, as Horowitz explains in this important interview.

    The “Never Trump” Pouters
    It’s understandable when Democrats slander Trump, but it’s disgraceful when Republicans echo them.
    May 9, 2016
    David Horowitz

    Reprinted from Breitbart.com.

    The conservatives who have declared war on the primary victor are displaying a myopia that could be deadly in November when Trump will lead Republicans against a party that has divided the country, destroyed its borders, empowered its enemies and put 93 million Americans into dependency on the state. This reckless disregard for consequences is matched only by a blindness to what has made Trump the presumptive nominee. When he entered the Republican primaries a year ago Trump was given no chance of surviving even the first contest let alone becoming the Republican nominee. That was the view of all the experts, and especially those experts with the best records of prediction.

    Trump - who had never held political office and had no experience in any political job - faced a field of sixteen tested political leaders, including nine governors and five senators from major states. Most of his political opponents were conservatives. During the primaries several hundred million dollars were spent in negative campaign ads – nastier and more personal than in any Republican primary in memory. At least 60,000 of those ads were aimed at Trump, attacking him as a fraud, a corporate predator, a not-so-closet liberal, an ally of Hillary Clinton, indistinguishable from Barack Obama, an ignoramus, and too crass to be president (Bill Clinton anyone?).

    These negative ads were directed at Republican primary voters, a constituency well to the right of the party. These primary voters are a constituency that may be said to represent the heart of the conservative movement in America, and are generally more politically engaged and informed than most Republican voters. Trump won their support. He won by millions of votes - more votes from this conservative heartland than any Republican in primary history. To describe Trump as ignorant – as so many beltway intellectuals have – is merely to privilege book knowledge over real world knowledge, not an especially wise way to judge political leaders.

    A chorus of detractors has attempted to dismiss Trump’s political victory as representing a mere plurality of primary voters, but how many candidates have won outright majorities among a field of seventeen, or five or even three? When the Republican primary contest was actually reduced to three, Trump beat the “true conservative,” Ted Cruz, with more than fifty percent of the votes. He did this in blue states and red states, and in virtually all precincts and among all Republican demographics. He clinched the nomination by beating Cruz with an outright majority in conservative Indiana.

    In opposing the clear choice of the Republican primary electorate the “Never Trump” crowd is simply displaying their contempt for the most politically active Republican voters. This contempt was dramatically displayed during a CNN segment with Trump’s spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, and Bill Kristol, the self-appointed guru of a Third Party movement whose only result can be to split the Republican ticket and provide Hillary with her best shot at the presidency. Pierson urged Kristol to help unify the Party behind its presumptive nominee. Kristol grinned and answered her: “You want leaders to become followers.” Could there be a more arrogant response? By what authority does Bill Kristol regard himself as a leader? Trump has the confidence of millions of highly committed and generally conservative Republican voters. That makes him a leader. Who does Bill Kristol lead except a coterie of inside-the-beltway foreign policy interventionists, who supported the fiasco in Libya that opened the door to al-Qaeda and ISIS?

    Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew
    A reckless plan to derail the election.
    May 16, 2016
    David Horowitz
    [​IMG]

    Reprinted from Breitbart.

    While millions of Republican primary voters have chosen Donald Trump as the party’s nominee, Bill Kristol and a small but well-heeled group of Washington insiders are preparing a third party effort to block Trump’s path to the White House. Their plan is to run a candidate who could win three states and enough votes in the electoral college to deny both parties the needed majority. This would throw the election into the House of Representatives, which would then elect a candidate the Kristol group found acceptable. The fact that this would nullify the largest vote ever registered for a Republican primary candidate, the fact that it would jeopardize the Republican majorities in both the House and Senate, and more than likely make Hillary Clinton president apparently doesn’t faze Kristol and company at all. This is to give elitism a bad name.

    One would think that the Trump opponents would have substantial reasons for pursuing such a destructive course. But examination of their expressed reasons shows that one would be wrong. Their chief justification for opposing Trump is that he is not a “constitutional conservative” and in fact is “without principles” and therefore dangerous. The evidence offered is that he has supported Democrats in the past, and changed his positions on important issues. Yet in seeking a candidate to carry their standard the Kristol group has approached billionaire investor Mark Cuban a figure uncannily similar to Trump. During the presidential election year 2012, the Hollywood Reporter noted that, “in February, billionaire sports and media mogul Mark Cuban was seen hugging Barack Obama at a $30,000-a-plate fundraiser for the president’s re-election bid.” Cuban was also a visible campaigner for Obama four years earlier. A fan of Obamacare, Cuban wrote a column for Huffington Post just before the 2012 election titled, “I would vote for Gov. Romney if he were a Democrat.” Now it is true that Mark Cuban eventually had second thoughts about Obama, and perhaps even about Democrats. But what these facts show is that Kristol and his allies are willing to elect anyone but Trump and have even fewer principles than the man they hate.

    A second charge against Trump is that his character is so bad (worse than Hillary’s or Bill’s?) that no right-thinking Republican could regard him as White House worthy. “I just don't think he has the character to be president of the United States,” Kristol declared in a recent interview. “It’s beyond any particular issue I disagree with him on, or who he picks as VP or something. The man in the last five days has embraced Mike Tyson, the endorsement of a convicted rapist in Indiana…. He likes toughness, Donald Trump, that's great, he likes rapists.” This would be fairly damning if the facts were as black and white as Kristol presents them. But as anyone familiar with the sports world would know, Mike Tyson had a dramatic change of heart following his release from prison - rejected the life he had led, repented his past, and committed himself to a course of humility and service to others.

    ...

    All these dishonesties and flim-flam excuses pale by comparison with the consequences Kristol and his “Never Trump” cohorts are willing to risk by splitting the Republican vote. Obama has provided America’s mortal enemy, Iran, with a path to nuclear weapons, $150 billion dollars, and the freedom to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles to deliver the lethal payloads. Trump has promised to abandon the Iran deal, while Hillary Clinton and all but a handful of Democrats have supported this treachery from start to finish. Kristol is now one of their allies. I am a Jew who has never been to Israel and has never been a Zionist in the sense of believing that Jews can rid themselves of Jew hatred by having their own nation state. But half of world Jewry now lives in Israel, and the enemies whom Obama and Hillary have empowered – Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, ISIS and Hamas - have openly sworn to exterminate the Jews. I am also an American (and an American first), whose country is threatened with destruction by the same enemies. To weaken the only party that stands between the Jews and their annihilation, and between America and the forces intent on destroying her, is a political miscalculation so great and a betrayal so profound as to not be easily forgiven.

    David Horowitz Attacked During Senatorial Witch-Hunt of Jeff Sessions
    Senator Richard Blumenthal trades in malicious slanders easily refuted.
    January 10, 2017
    Frontpagemag.com
    [​IMG]

    In a press release expressing concern over the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions, the Alliance for Justice has made a series of false and reckless claims against the David Horowitz Freedom Center as a basis for its opposition to the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States.[1] According to Nan Aron president of the Alliance for Justice and board member Farhana Khera, the David Horowitz Freedom Center is an “anti-Muslim hate group,” at whose events Senator Sessions has spoken and to which he has “deep ties.” These false claims lead them to conclude that, “this raises questions about his judgment and fitness to serve as U.S. Attorney General.”

    Senator Sessions is indeed a friend of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, of which I am the founder and ceo, but he has no ties, let alone “deep ties” to our organization. Moreover, the David Horowitz Freedom Center is neither anti-Muslim nor a “hate group.” I have on many occasions publicly stated that the vast majority of Muslims are law-abiding, good people; that the problem is a movement within Islam of Islamic supremacists who seek to impose Islamic law on others by force if necessary. Among the hundreds of thousands of words of mine that have been published on the subject of Islam and the Islamic jihad, there is not a single sentence that can reasonably construed as “anti-Muslim.” Nor has the Alliance for Justice produced one.

    The Center event at which Senator Sessions spoke is our annual “Restoration Weekend.” This event has also been addressed by another friend, Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim, and president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. So much for our anti-Muslim hostility.

    The very list of our speakers exposes the defamatory claims of Nan Aron and the Alliance for Justice as malicious fictions. Among the speakers at our events have been Democratic senators Sam Nunn, Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Mayor of Washington DC Adrian Fenty, liberal attorney and women’s rights advocate Gloria Allred, liberal civil rights activist and president of Operation Hope, John Bryant.

    The Center’s annual Restoration Weekend at which Senator Sessions spoke has also featured the current Vice-President elect, Mike Pence, and three former attorneys general – John Ashcroft, Michael Mukasey and Ed Meese.

    Other Freedom Center speakers have included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, current Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, former Speakers of the House Newt Gingrich and John Boehner, four current members of the Senate Judiciary Committee – Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and Ted Cruz - and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte.

    Our guest speakers have also included the following cabinet members and administration officers:

    ...

    Conflating anti-Islamist terrorism and anti-Islamist supremacy with hostility to religious Muslims is a technique of the terrorists and their enablers, and should have no place in the campaign of an organization proposing itself as a defender of civil liberties and civil rights.

    The David Horowitz Freedom Center deeply regrets that its reputation has been abused in order to be placed in the service of an attempt to block the nomination of one of the most decent, tolerant and courageous Americans ever to hold a senate office. It would be a national tragedy if Jeff Sessions were not to be confirmed as Attorney General of the United States where he will protect the rights of all Americans with a vigor and integrity that has been in short supply for many years.

    Who better than David Horowitz to speak up and out? He should probably be on some kind of "required reading" list. I've read a good number of his books and hope to read more ... I'm also old enough to have lived through many of the events about which he has written ... and some of the inner workings of the leaders of the times, written by someone who was an inside leader of the times shocked the hell out of me. A good many of those still unrepentant leaders are very prominent today as high level politicians, university professors and in other capacities.
