Don Corleone carried his message through the United States. He conferred with compatriots in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, and Boston. He was the underworld apostle of peace and, by 1939, more successful than any Pope, he had achieved a working agreement amongst the most powerful underworld organizations in the country. Like the Constitution of the United States this agreement respected fully the internal authority of each member in his state or city. The agreement covered only spheres of influence and an agreement to enforce peace in the underworld.
The Godfather, Mario Puzo
President Trump is moving towards the biggest change in US foreign policy since World War II.
Close study of The Godfather yields far better insight into the mind and methods of Donald Trump than the invariably wrong blather of the media and most of the commentariat. A cottage industry of pundits hyperventilates daily about his tweets and public pronouncements, 90 percent of which is fluff and misdirection. It’s a much smaller group who focus on what Trump actually does.
Three realities confronted Trump when he assumed office. The US empire is unsustainable, so too is the trajectory of its spending and debt, and the government is fundamentally corrupt. It would be foolish to bet Trump doesn’t understand these issues and the linkages between them.
The question on everybody’s mind today should be why Sessions waited until the last possible minute to fire McCabe? Was (or is) the Deep State organizing a coup? The longer this fuse burns, the higher the likelihood for CW II.
Comey’s new nickname: Special Agent Orange
Special Agent Andrew McCabe stood tall over the last 8 months, when small people were trying to tear down an institution we all depend on. He served with distinction for two decades. I wish Andy well. I also wish continued strength for the rest of the FBI. America needs you.

John Brennan’s response to Donald Trump’s tweet is shown below:
Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj

Andrew McCabe has been fired. The media’s spin will be interesting as they scramble to provide cover for the corruption within the FBI and the Department of Justice. Either this will be the beginning of the cleansing in Washington, D.C. or the trigger for national civil unrest. I believe the government and the military are planning for civil unrest in the near future. Evil will reap what it has sowed.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire.
Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”
For those who may not be up to date on the most au courant Hallmark holidays, Wednesday was “National School Walkout Day” – during which students in some school systems were actually compelled to protest, whether they wanted to or not, under the guise of “showing support” for the 17 victims of the nightmarish shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Frankly, “showing support” for the victims isn’t exactly an act of radical courage – everyone mourns these innocent victims, including the President and every member of the NRA. And yes, everyone would like to assure student safety. So the point of the walkout isn’t really to support anyone – but rather to flat out protest against the Constitution in general and the Second Amendment in particular. An amendment which, we’d guess, is not being constructively explained in schools which are preoccupied with lockstep liberalism.
Student loan debt is the second highest form of debt in America, second only to mortgage loans. In fact, a staggering 95% of total consumer debt lent over the last year was for student loans and car loans. America is a strong nation, but you cannot build a strong nation on theft and unpaid debt, so it is essential for US students to effectively deal with their student debt.
Why Students Are Seriously Struggling In North Carolina
These shocking statistics don’t translate well; there are over 43 million students in the US who collectively owe $1.41 trillion in debt– and it seems that the problem is particularly bad in North Carolina. A recent study found that North Carolina students are more likely to default on their student loans, which implies that many students in North Carolina are overwhelmed by their student debt. This is a cause for concern, as it means that more young adults in the state are entering the working world with crippling debt.
How To Deal With Your Student Debt
If you are a student and you are struggling to make your student loan payments, don’t worry. There are a few different programs and loan options out there that can make it easier for you to make your monthly repayments. While most students in North Carolina are on the standard 10 year repayment plan that is the default option for federal student loans, but many people struggle to manage this loan.
If you can relate to this, here are four other options that you can consider:
Student debt is a big problem in the US, but there are lots of ways for American students to clear their debt. It just takes commitment and focus – and a good budget.
I was listening to one of our “new” leaders standing in front of Chuck Schumer tell the crowd: “The adults have failed us”. This one line triggered a memory from Isaiah 3:
“I will make mere youths their officials; children will rule over them.”
Another analogy to consider from this chapter:
Youths oppress my people, women rule over them. My people, your guides lead you astray;they turn you from the path.
Once again, the dichotomy of our country’s division is on display. I know which side I am on. It is the side which is not being paid to attend protests and rallies. It is the side which understands natural laws given to us by God. It is the side which looks at children and childish leaders and recognizes the truth.
I have copied the entire chapter of Isaiah 3 below. I suggest you read it and consider its implications.

Just to be clear, this is a parody site of Mad Maxine.
It appears Dwayne Dixon, the far-left militia member who teaches anthropology at the University of North Carolina, is in the news again. This time a video has surfaced in which he is seen telling his students that he confronted Charlottesville Unite The Right attendee, James Fields, with a loaded semi-automatic rifle, which some have speculated was the catalyst for James to speed through the crowd killing Heather Heyer.
Professor Dixon was recently featured in a story from from ABC Australia in which they profiled him as a leader in the militia group, Redneck Revolt. As we have previously reported, Redneck Revolt is a far-left militia group with over 30 branches nationwide and until recently they offered a downloadable 36 page guerrilla warfare manual on their website that included sections on kidnapping, sabotage, terrorism, and executions.
When it comes to America’s response to gun crime, one Georgia town has been thinking outside the box since 1982, when its leaders passed a law requiring it citizens to own a firearm.
The Kennesaw, Georgia, law states that “every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm,” according to CNN, and was reportedly passed as a deterrent to crime.
Putin has spoken softly, but he’s carrying a big stick.
During his State of the Nation address on March 1, Russian president Vladimir Putin claimed that Russia had developed six new weapons. For Putin’s descriptions of the weapons and more details about them, please read the above-linked article by Alexander Mercouris, which was posted on SLL.
Four of the six weapons Putin mentioned are, if Putin is to be believed, already developed: the Sarmat heavy Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM), a nuclear powered cruise missile, a nuclear powered underwater drone, and an aircraft launched Kinzhai hypersonic missile. They are breathtaking for their speed, range, maneuverability, undetectability, and miniaturization of nuclear reactor technology. The other two, the Avangard hypersonic projectile and laser weapons (which Putin only cryptically mentioned), are believed to be still under development.
