Trevor Loudon: 'Why freedom rests on stopping Clinton'- author and producer of the soon to be released film version of his book series, "The Enemies Within." 

Trevor Loudon analyzes and advises voters on the ramifications of not boosting Donald Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton at the polls this November. 

Philem McAleer dramatized depositions of Hillary's abetters
Irish documentary filmmaker, Phelim McAleer also addressed American Freedom Alliance's summer picnic in Los Angeles.

"Phelim McAleer's "Clinton Email On Film" is based on depositions given by top Clinton aides to the watchdog group Judicial Watch, the latest from adviser Huma Abedin. "It's compelling viewing — as she is in turn petulant, defiant and then apologetic," he said.

From the Washington Examiner 
McAleer's films show actors re-enacting the real depositions, which were filmed but sealed from public view. "We only made these re-enactments because Hillary's lawyers managed to persuade the judge to seal the tapes until after the election. That's just not good enough, and by spreading these films you are helping to end censorship," he said of his productions. So far, he has re-enacted four depositions, by Abedin, Clinton legal adviser Cheryl Mills, tech adviser Bryan Pagliano and Clinton's State Department secretary Stephen Mull."
AFA volunteers attentive to Phelim McAleer
Wikipedia: (With his wife, Ann McElhinney), they have written and produced the political documentaries "FrackNation," "Not Evil Just Wrong," and "Mine Your Own Business," as well as "The Search for Tristan's Mum" and "Return to Sender".

They also produced a true-crime drama film based on the crimes of Kermit Gosnell to be released in 2017.

AFA leader Karen Siegemund, also introduced Bill Becker, general counsel of FreedomX- self-described as "protecting Christian and Conservative freedom of expression."


On Independence Day / Entebbe Rescue anniversary- Netanyahu & filmmakers on what Americans and Israelis share

On America's 200th birthday in 1976, Benjamin Netanyahu's IDF officer brother, Yonatan, helped lead a mission to to rescue 105 Israelis kidnapped and being held at Entebbe Airport in Uganda. Bibi drove from Boston to tell his father Bentzion, teaching in Ithaca, NY, that Yoni had been killed leading that rescue mission. On July 1st, 2016, Prime Minister Netanyahu gave this address at the US Ambassador to Israel's residence, prior to flying to Uganda, where Idi Amin's son Jaffar welcomed Anat Shomron Bukai, the only daughter of Dan Shomron, who commanded Operation Thunderbolt.
Debbie Schlussel, Zionist blogger and film critic, characterizes Israel's July 4th 1976 raid on the Entebbe Airport in her Israel’s Raid on Entebbe, 40 Years Ago Today – Defeat of Jihadists

"the heroic, successful Israeli Army rescue of passengers that hijackers working for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist group (and Germany’s Baader-Meinhoff Gang/Red Army) had taken hostage to Uganda. America was jubilant in celebrating its special birthday and independence, and its closest ally in the world, Israel, was also jubilant in the rescue of people taken hostage on an Air France flight because they were Jews and flying from Israel. Israel paid special tribute and had parades in honor of its ally, America’s 200 years of independence. But Israel also had its own celebration going on–that Israel had successfully rescued so many Jewish lives threatened by Palestinian terrorists. I say Palestinian–and not Muslim–because the PFLP was not an Islamic organization. Its leader, George Habash, and his deputy, Wadih Haddad, were Christian Arabs. 

The Israeli commandos at Entebbe carried out a secret mission planned on the previous Jewish Sabbath to rescue the passengers. All but four passengers were rescued. Three were shot by the pro-Palestinian hijackers, and an elderly Jewish lady was murdered by Muslim Ugandan dictator Idi Amin’s henchmen, as she sought medical treatment at a Ugandan hospital. The operation’s commander, Yonatan “Yoni” Netanyahu a/k/a Jonathan Netanyahu–whom many say was the superior Netanyahu brother to current Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was killed in the raid. Other than this casualty, the operation was carried out with surgical accuracy and success. Although the flight contained 248 passengers, as is usual for bigoted Palestinians and their supporters, the non-Jewish passengers were freed, and 103 Jewish hostages were rescued by Netanyahu and his fellow IDF commandos. The Israeli commandos also killed all three hijackers and 45 Ugandan soldiers (have fun with those 72-revirginized, chumps!), and they blew up 11 Soviet MiGs. An awesome achievement."

Hours before Orlando massacre, LGBT Republicans educated L.A. Pride revelers on homophobic Islamist threat which Hillary & Obama indulge

After protestors depart, Nestor Moto, Jr. returns to stump for Trump at LA Pride
On Saturday June 11th, DemoCast visited the L.A. Pride Fair preceding the Gay Pride Parade on June 12th. Omar Mateen's massacring homosexuals at Orlando "Pulse" took place merely hours afterwards. Salaried protestors held "Dump Trump" signs at the entrance to the L.A. event, without challenge, except for one Iranian-Jewish refugee, featured in our video story. The majority of attendees range from liberal to far-left. 
LA Pride lesbians placate Matthew Craffe's outreach before Islamist massacre

Both liberal and conservative fair-attendees posed for photos as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at the Log Cabin Republicans' booth. But only the Republicans we asked were familiar with the Islamic dogma to killing homosexuals- and recognized why Mr. Trump's policy for a moratorium on Muslim immigration was in LGBT's own interest.

Dr. Tawfik Hamid: Sharia Compliance Is a Death Sentence for Gays, ‘You Have to Throw Them from the Top of a Cliff or Burn Them Alive’ by John Hayward in Breitbart.com 13 Jun 2016
Dr. Tawfik Hamid, one of the world’s leading experts on radical Islamist ideology, joined SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon on Monday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily to offer his analysis of the Orlando terrorist attack at a gay nightclub.

“As I see it, it’s simply sharia in action,” he said, dismissing a variety of other half-hearted explanations offered for Omar Mateen’s murderous actions. “He is practicing sharia law, Islamic law, that until today — up until this very moment — justifies killing gays.” 
He said some Islamic scholars may attempt to claim that what Mateen did is “un-Islamic,” but that’s really just because of the execution method he chose. “From their point of view, to kill gays in an Islamic or sharia way, you have to throw them from the top of a cliff or burn them alive,” he explained. “To throw them from the top of a mountain, or a cliff, to have their bones broken, and then let them die in pain, or burn them alive – that is the Islamic way.” ...

Hamid said the real problem is “the ideology that can spread to us via the Internet, or physically via terrorists, through immigration — through many jihadis to infiltrate our border through refugee issues, for example, coming from unknown areas in the world that can harbor terrorists.” 
“They are a real threat, both physically and ideologically,” he warned.  Bannon asked Hamid if the U.S. media was effectively operating under “blasphemy laws” already, by refusing to discuss Islamist ideology, instead frantically seeking other explanations for Mateen’s atrocity — everything from mental illness to steroid abuse.
Hamid agreed that the media was trying to make the situation appear “un-Islamic,” but “irrespective of what they are saying, the reality is that it is Islamic, as it is told in the Islamic books, and certainly the media is not really trying to address the issue in an honest and scientific manner.”
“They are trying to use it politically. They are trying to dilute what is happening, to avoid any backlash against the Muslim community. But believe me, things will not change until the Muslim leadership, and the Muslim scholars, and organized relations, clearly and unambiguously denounce the barbaric sharia principles of killing gays, of killing apostates, of stoning women to death, of declaring jihad and taking sex slaves after declaring wars on non-Muslims.”


Rational Repubs wrestle with anchor-teens taunting Trumpers in California

"Go back to Europe!" Latinos antagonizing outside of Trump-rally get physical when countered by diverse immigrants' knowledge, arguments 

Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, speaking to about 3,000 people in Anaheim, California (and partially broadcast live on CNN) offered an anti-immigrant message in a majority Latino city on May 25th.

Bandana masked Latinos confront Trump supporters at Disney-area rally

Citizens on all sides of the Trump spectrum clashed in and outside the Convention Center, as police from Anaheim and other cities, as well as Orange County sheriff’s deputies, used horses and riot equipment to control the crowd.

Pro-Trump attendees responded, "USA! USA!,” to protesters taunting them with, "Fuck Trump!"  a couple of fireworks exploded.  

Trump rally exitees confront Democrat antagonists in original DemoCast video. Two, Ventura college students say that, in the absence of police protection separating the clans, Bernie Sanders supporters drew switchblade knives against the Republicans. 

Several supporters and protesters nearly came to blows as the two groups screamed obscenities at each other. 

Around 2 p.m., police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly and ordered people to leave, closing down a stretch of Harbor Boulevard. 

Youths cursing around family tourists were asked by an Hispanic-American adult to curb their vulgar tongues. They tore his Trump sign from his possession and ripped it to pieces.

The protesters and supporters eventually moved onto Harbor Boulevard as Orange County Sheriff's deputies and Anaheim police began moving forward. Boris Kushnir, a legal immigrant from the former Soviet Ukraine, had attempted reasoning to defuse the confrontation of aggressive supporters of Bernie Sanders antagonizing Republican rallyers. 

As riot-police marched us away, Mr. Kushnir publicly challenged Bernie Sanders to a debate regarding the realities of a Socialist society. 

Fourteen people, including nine adults and five juveniles, were arrested Wednesday following Trump’s speech.

Mrs.Mara of Rancho Cucamonga spoke of the many minority supporters for Trump inside the rally, including Asians and Latinos.

As proof of the devotion of Latinos FOR Trump, she left her home before 6am in order to guarantee admittance into the free, noontime rally. 

Mara said, "We need change, different. This country is free, but you don't come over here for gimme-gimme. America is no sugar-daddy no more. You need to work and come here legally. And I'm Hispanic! I love Trump!" She added, "I like him, he is a leader, he is my president!"

"America’s instructive humiliation in the South China Sea": Spengler

David P. Goldman in Jerusalem
Let us admit it fairly, as a business people should: We have had no end of a lesson: it will do us no end of good,” wrote Rudyard Kipling in 1902 after the Boers humiliated the British Army in the first round of the Boer War. America should express the same gratitude towards China, which has humiliated America in the South China Sea. By exposing American weakness without firing a shot, Beijing has taught Washington a lesson which the next administration should take to heart.
Last year I asked a ranking Pentagon planner what America would do about China’s ship-killer missiles, which reportedly can sink an aircraft carrier a couple of hundred miles from its coast. If China wants to deny the American navy access to the South China Sea, the official replied, we can do the same: persuade Japan to manufacture surface-to-ship missiles and station them in the Philippines.
It didn’t occur to Washington that the Philippines might not want to take on China. The country’s president-elect Rodrigo Duterte explained last year (as David Feith reported in the Wall Street Journal), “America would never die for us. If America cared, it would have sent its aircraft carriers and missile frigates the moment China started reclaiming land in contested territory, but no such thing happened … America is afraid to go to war. We’re better off making friends with China.”
It isn’t only the Philippines who see the obvious. China claims the support of 40 countries for its position that territorial claims to the South China Sea should be resolved by direct negotiations between individual countries, rather than before a United Nations tribunal constituted under the UN Convention on Law of the Seas, as Washington wants. A joint statement by the foreign ministers of China, Russia and India after a meeting in Moscow last month supported China’s position.
The US 7th Fleet was the eight-hundred-pound gorilla in the South China Sea after World War II, relying on a weapons system now more than nine decades old, namely the aircraft carrier. That was before China fielded its DF-21 “carrier killer” surface-to-ship missile. The latest iteration of the missile, designated DF-26, reportedly has a range of 2,500 miles. New technologies, including lasers and rail guns, might defeat the new Chinese missiles, but a great deal of investment would be required to make them practical, as a January report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies argued.

Was the airplane of Israel's new chief of the disputed territories sabotaged?

Brig. Gen. Munir Amar's (left) plane crashes 7-weeks into governing Territories
Israeli Brigadier General Munir Amar, chief of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Unit (COGAT), was killed on Friday when the light plane he piloted crashed into a cliff about fifteen minutes after takeoff, Israeli news site Ynet reported. Gen. Amar, the only person aboard, had only assumed the role from a Jewish Israeli 7-weeks ago.

COGAT's website describes the unit as "responsible for implementing the government's policy in Judea and Samaria and vis-à-vis the Gaza Strip" and "constitutes the civilian authority for residential zoning and infrastructure and is responsible for addressing the needs of Israeli settlements in the West Bank."

Amar's predecessor, Brig. Gen. David Menachem, had lead constant efforts to improve and develop the economy and infrastructure of Judea and Samaria, assist the local population, and maintain Israel's security.

Examples include introducing initiatives to develop the agriculture, hi-tech and export sectors in Judea and Samaria; increasing the number of Palestinian workers in Israel; 

facilitating the entrance of Palestinian men over 55 and women over 50 into Israel without requiring a permit; and generally increasing cooperation between Israel and the Palestinians.

Before assuming his COGAT position on February 3rd, Amar served as commander of the IDF's Arab-speaking Sword Battalion, commander of the Hermon Brigade, and commander of the Home Front Command's Northern District.

Amar, 47, was a married father of three and a resident of the Druze town of Julis in the western Galilee, Israeli news site Walla reported.
