  1. No wonder Dems want to lower the voting age to 16. Brainwash them while they're impressionable, then get them to the voting polls.

  2. It was mafia connected companies that got the contracts with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to clean up the debris after 9/11. Anthony Fontanetta and Mark Jakubek were executives at the Port Authority and found guilty of racketeering and bribery involving millions in stolen cash from federal aid for ground zero clean up. About 19 others plead guilty as well in this racketeering. The port authority has a history with organized crime however on 9/11 the Port Authority's records were destroyed because they were located in Tower 7. Owners of the construction company Peter Scalamandre & Sons were convicted of paying off members of the Lucchese crime family for labor racketeering prior to 9/11. Peter Scalamandre & Sons was later shut down working as sub contractors during the ground zero clean up. The major clean up companies used smaller contractors to carry out much of the work. Many of the smaller contractors like Peter Scalamandre & Sons were connected with the Italian Mafia. La Cosa Nostra has infiltrated business, politics, and police in New York City.

    The major companies for the 9/11 clean up were the London AMEC subsidiary AMEC Construction, Bovis Lend Lease, Tully Construction and Turner Construction being funded with over 450 million for clean up. These larger companies used smaller sub contractors and many of these companies were tied with the Five Families and their associates. The subcontractors payments were in the range of 60 million of that 450 million in clean up aid. It is believed that about 63 million went to mafia connected construction and clean up companies. Salvatore Carucci is believed to be a Lucchese associate and is the owner of Seasons Contracting which received over 26 million for his company's clean up work. Allen Monchik who has been convicted of fraud worked as a consultant making calls hours after 9/11 to the port authority, asbetos companies and to mafia associates like former Lucchese boss Louis Daidone and mafia associate Noel Modica. The District Attorney's investigators tracked these calls while investigating corruption involved with these asbestos companies. The House of Savoy and the House of Windsor both knighted Rudy Giuliani the former Mayor of NYC.

    On September 11, 2001 Donald Rumsfeld who was Jesuit educated from Georgetown ran the Department of Defense as Secretary of Defense, George Tenet who was also Jesuit educated from Georgetown ran the Central Intelligence Agency, and Michael Copps who was a Jesuit professor at Loyola University of New Orleans ran the Federal Communications Commission which regulates all broadcasting inside of the United States. The US armed forces, CIA, and FCC were all under the supervision of Jesuit alumni and professors. Viet Dinh wrote the Patriot Act and is a Professor at Georgetown. The real theft on 9/11 goes back to Franklin D Roosevelt and his Executive Order 6102 which criminalized the ownership of gold in the United States and demanded all gold to be handed in under the threat of fines and imprisonment. This gold was covertly held underneath the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. On 9/11 William Joseph McDonough was President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and was Jesuit educated from Georgetown and he oversaw this theft. After 9/11 the gold was removed from the FRBNY under the disguise of ground zero debris. The gold was then shipped out through the Port Authority and sent to London and Rome.

  3. If you are not a liberal by age 20, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative by age 30, you have no brain.

    -various statesmen throughout history

  4. The Democratic party could win the 2020 election they need their canidate to promise to enforce the immigration laws on the 50 million ILLEGALS being Walled in now! President Trump forgot that part of his promise!

  5. They showed 3 different guest, all on the far-left. Richard Spencer may be labeled a "white nationalist" but, he is a leftist in his political views.

  6. But these kids already see radical leftist every day … Turn on ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC news, any late night stand-up comic and nearly all TV shows and the people they will see are all radical leftist.
    Whats crazy is that Democrats consider anyone who believes in economic facts to be a "right-wing" radical.

  7. The only way to heal our country is for our leaders to end the blame game and work together to help the middle-class and the poor.

  8. Have you ever noticed these high minded liberals never answer , who, what, when , why, how, there feelings are facts , there not there just bad preaching self grand standing bs is bs

  9. Alright, now be fair, and have the likes of Tom Metzger, Steve Sailer, Kevin MacDonald, Pat Buchanan, Jim Goad, Michael A. Hoffman , Taki Theodoracopolous, Diane West, David Horowitz….

  10. As someone who took this class in 2004, let me just say that these speakers did not brainwash any students. It also changed my life. We got to see up close how crazy these people are and how they hook and recruit. Those of us who have taken the class came away, if anything, more politically moderate and less intimidated by extremists. I met my best friend in that class, and we were politically opposite. We realized that we agree on a lot of things. We got to go visit the class in 2016 to discuss our friendship and how social media has changed our politics.
