David Duke Inspired By Trump To Run For Congress To Stop 'Ethnic Cleansing' Of White People

On Saturday, white nationalist leader and Donald Trump booster David Duke promoted his potential run for Congress on “The Political Cesspool,” the “pro-White” radio program that once hosted Donald Trump Jr.

Duke said that if he decides to run for Congress in Louisiana, it will be to warn people that “European-Americans” are “headed toward an ethnic cleansing, and that’s the only way to put it, in the nation that our forefathers created” and to combat policies that are “destroying our people.”

He repeated his belief that Trump, who has notoriously shared the Twitter messages of white supremacists, include one with the handle @WhiteGenocideTM, has given white nationalists an opportunity to go “on the offensive.”

I love what Trump’s doing. I think that Trump is a breath of fresh air. I don’t know exactly what he’s going to do when he’s in but I think it’s great what he’s doing. But I tell you something, we have got to continue to take this another step, we have got to continue to go on the offensive in this battle. As far as I’m concerned, I’m going to vote for Trump, I said I supported Trump, I’ve been aligned with Trump from very early in this campaign, as you have, but there’s no question in my mind that we need at least one guy in the United States Congress, whether in the House of Representatives or the Senate, at least one guy that will openly stand up for the rights and the heritage of European-Americans and I believe that the time is right.

Duke went on to say that he is proud of his past leadership role in the Ku Klux Klan: “I’m not ashamed of that. I was in a nonviolent Klan organization. I always promoted nonviolence. I took a different path later on but I’m not ashamed of the fact that I stood up because at that time, as a young man, I realized that we were headed towards disaster.”

Far-Right Pundit: What If ISIS Uses Pokémon Go?

BarbWire columnist Chris Mills is just asking the question: What if ISIS uses Pokémon Go “to gather people to specified locations at certain times where there just so happened to be a bomb, or snipers?”

In a column today, Mills accused President Obama of fanning “the flames of a Civil War in America, shielding American thugs and Muslims around the world from criticism while the death toll rises” and “crushing any attempts to rebel against his agenda.”

This lawless and violent environment that Obama has created, he said, will pave the way for ISIS to kill people using the game.

Our president has fed the flames of a Civil War in America, shielding American thugs and Muslims around the world from criticism while the death toll rises. Hundreds dead, hundreds wounded and exactly zero of these heinous acts were committed by law abiding, white, Christian conservatives. Yet, we seem to bear the blame for everything. Even a Jihadi maniac driving a truck through a crowd of innocent families in Nice, France will be the fault of Americas NRA, even though it has been revealed that one of the weapons used in the previous terrorist attack in France was a weapon “lost” by Obama’s ATF in the botched Fast and Furious sting.



The pro-Islam Prime Minister of Turkey put down a “coup” that would have overthrown his regime, which is reportedly sympathetic to ISIS. Some say he created the coup himself as a ruse to increase his own power and arrest those within the Government that opposed him. He manipulated the emotions of a frightened citizenry, under the guise of religious “tolerance”, for his own gain. President Obama backed the Turkish Prime Ministers pro-ISIS actions.

Isn’t Barack Obama doing exactly the same thing in America? Creating unrest within his own nation in the name of tolerance? Placing propagandist blame on those who oppose him? Ultimately crushing any attempts to rebel against his agenda; increasing the global perception of his personal piety and party’s power over the populace, concurrently?



Speaking of which, is anyone else creeped out by the ramifications of PokemonGo’s technology falling into the wrong hands? As it stands, our children are being led through the streets on a virtual scavenger hunt by a computer generated algorithm designed by Nintendo. It uses GPS technology to make real people go to real world locations to gather imaginary monsters.

What if this technology was used by ISIS to gather people to specified locations at certain times where there just so happened to be a bomb, or snipers?

It would only take one person on Nintendo’s staff and one person on the outside to place the bomb.

If you see a middle-aged man (we’ll call him Chester) walking down the street swiping his finger rapidly across his i-phone wearing three-weeks-dirty sweatpants, he has probably ventured forth from his mom’s basement for the first time in months looking for Pokemon. Your kids may meet up with him in the park, looking for the same digital monster. Remember kids, don’t talk to strangers, unless he can tell you when the next Charizard will “spawn”.

Chester the Pokemon Trainer may even end up in a women’s bathroom looking for the same creature. If he happens to identify as a woman that day. Don’t worry, if Hillary wins there will be pedophile pride parades soon enough. Chester shouldn’t have to be ashamed of his desires for Pokemon or your daughter, right?

The Five Most Absurd Defenses Of Melania Trump's Plagiarism Of Michelle Obama

For months, Donald Trump surrogates have come up with outlandish explanations to justify the presumptive GOP nominee’s wild statements, from defending his racist remarks about a federal judge to insisting that he never really proposed a ban on Muslims from entering the country.

So it was no surprise to see Trump backers twist themselves into knots defending Melania Trump’s speech last night at the Republican National Convention after parts were found to have been clearly plagiarized from a 2008 convention addressed delivered by Michelle Obama.

1) What About The 93% That Wasn’t Plagiarized?

While Trump didn’t select New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as his running mate, Christie is still acting as a loyal surrogate, this time denying the obvious fact that a portion of Melania Trump’s speech was plagiarized.

Christie made the absurd claim that Melania Trump didn’t plagiarize her remarks since “93% of the speech is completely different than Michelle Obama’s speech.”

Christie later told CNN that he simply knows in his gut that she didn’t plagiarize part of her speech: “If we’re talking about 7% of a speech, that was really, universally considered to be a good performance by Melania. I know her. There’s no way that Melania Trump was plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech.”

2) It’s Hillary Clinton’s Fault!

In an interview with CNN, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort denied the “crazy” allegation that Melania Trump was “cribbing Michelle Obama’s speech,” arguing that it was just another “example of when a woman threatens Hillary Clinton, how she will try to demean her and take her down.”

Manafort later held a press conference at which he said that the controversy proves that “when Hillary Clinton is threatened by a female, the first thing she does is try to destroy that person.”

3) ‘Fragments Of Words’

In an interview with CBS, Manafort said that Melania Trump only used “fragments of words” that were similar to Michelle Obama's.

“We’re talking about words like compassion, love of family, respect,” he said. “These are not words that are unique words, that belong to the Obamas.”

Earlier today, campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told The Hill: “This concept that Michelle Obama invented the English language is absurd.”

4) Who Cares — It Was A Great Speech!

Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody rose to Melania Trump’s defense while speaking today with “700 Club” host Pat Robertson.

Brody applauded her “great” speech and dismissed the “quote ‘plagiarism’ charges,” saying that “the long-term story here, Pat, is that the reality is that Melania Trump gave a very good speech last night. She was poised, smart, articulate on that stage on Monday night and what that means, Pat, going forward is that Melania Trump needs to get out on the stump.”

“Cleary, she is articulate, doing a very good job — and they need help among women voters and she can be a key part of that,” he added.

Robertson noted that Melania Trump was “absolutely gorgeous” and “Mr. Trump has a good eye for beauty.”

5) It Was A Good Thing!

Admitted plagiarist Ben Carson said he didn’t see any plagiarism in Melania Trump's remarks, but that even if she did plagiarize, it was a good thing:

“If Melania’s speech is similar to Michelle Obama’s speech, that should make us all very happy because we should be saying, whether we’re Democrats or Republicans, we share the same values,” he told reporters after addressing a Florida GOP delegation breakfast at a hotel here 20 minutes outside of Cleveland, where the RNC is taking place.

“If we happen to share values, we should celebrate that, not try to make it into a controversy,” he added.



“I don’t think they were plagiarized. I think there are general principles that are very valuable to Americans, and of course to express those principles you’re going to use similar language,” Carson said.

RNC Speaker Asks God For Democratic Defeat In November

South Carolina pastor Mark Burns, a controversial Donald Trump campaign surrogate, delivered the benediction at today’s meeting of the Republican National Convention, where he used what is often an opportunity for nonpartisan prayer to call on Republicans to unite against “Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.”

“Father God, in the name of Jesus, Lord, we’re so thankful for the life of Donald Trump,” he said. “We’re thankful that you are guiding him, that you are giving him the words to unite this party, this country, that we together can defeat the liberal Democratic Party, to keep us divided and not united. Because we are the United States of America, and we are the conservative party under God.”

He asked God to protect Trump and to “give him the words, give him the peace, give him the power and the authority to be the next president of the United States of America.”

RNC Descends Into Chaos When Presiding Chair Blocks Never Trump Delegates

The Republican National Convention broke into disarray today when Rep. Steve Womack of Arkansas, who was serving as the presiding chair, walked off the stage after ruling against a last-ditch effort by Never Trump forces to save their cause. The Never Trump delegates had demanded a roll call vote on the adoption of the convention rules, which they hoped to change in their Hail Mary effort to stop Donald Trump’s nomination.

Politico described the showdown:

The anti-Trump delegates opposed the rules and hoped to vote them down in the roll call vote. Their ultimate goal is to get a new set of rules that allow delegates to vote against Trump even if they are pledged to him based on the results of their state's primary or caucus rules, though they appear unlikely to have the votes to do either.

Womack eventually returned to say that the group pushing for a vote on the rules did not have sufficient support after several states, which he didn’t name, withdrew from the effort.

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli led the protests of Womack’s decision to approve the rules on a simple voice vote rather than call for a roll call vote, and the Colorado delegation walked out of the proceedings entirely.

Alex Jones: Donald Trump Is Bringing Our Views Into The Mainstream

Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, held a pro-Donald Trump rally in Cleveland outside of the Republican National Convention today, where he thanked the soon-to-be Republican presidential nominee, a past guess on Jones' bizarre radio program, for bringing his ideas into the mainstream.

“We see the information that we talk about that was seen as radical becoming mainline,” Jones said. “We have to be ready to win. We have to be ready to take the system back and restore the republic.”

Later, Jones invited comedian Eric André onto the stage. André asked Jones to have sex with his wife, talked about his urine and repeated conspiracy theories about the September 11 attacks, which Jones applauded since “I exposed all that.”

“You said something legitimate,” Jones told him.

GOP Rep: Donald Trump Won't Build A Border Wall

Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, has been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump, hailing him as a “dealmaker” who “will get some stuff done.”

However, Farenthold said in an interview last week with Virginia radio host John Fredericks that he doesn’t think Trump will actually fulfill his signature policy proposal, building a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border that is paid for by the Mexican government, and instead will settle for a “virtual wall.”

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and anti-immigrant activist Dan Stein have similarly said that they believe Trump will not really build a border wall.

Earlier in the interview, Farenthold criticized President Obama for tossing “a can of gasoline on the fire” of race relations in America, claiming that the president knows “he can only win through dividing.”

“He gives lip service to uniting but you listen to the next sentence or two and it’s all about us against them and divisiveness,” he said.

He then criticized the Black Lives Matter movement, saying, “I think it’s 'all lives matter' and I think everybody can get behind that. Why do we have to differentiate between different groups? We need to come together. As long as we keep talking about division, it increases the tension between the different groups and puts us on the wrong path.”

Donald Trump: 'There's Something Going On' With Obama's Body Language

Today on “Fox & Friends,” Donald Trump repeatedly used one of his favorite lines — “There’s something going on” — while addressing President Obama’s response to the recent shooting of three police officers in Baton Rouge.

Trump, who has previously used the phrase to suggest that President Obama is a terrorist sympathizer, said that “there’s something going on” with the president’s “body language” that shows that his praise of the work of police officers isn’t sincere.

“You know, I watch the president, and sometimes the words are okay but you just look at the body language and there’s something going on. Look, there’s something going on, and the words are not often okay, by the way,” he said. “There’s just bad feeling and a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it too. There’s a lot of bad feeling about him. We have a country that has not been like this since I can remember it.”

Trump also made the baseless claim that the Baton Rouge shooter was a radical Islamist, a mistake that an adviser later blamed on the fact that the interview took place early in the morning.
