    Hey Tony,

    It seems that YouTube censored your video “Spontaneous Austin Youtube Protest”. Please post it on one of your alternate sites.

    “And all God’s chill’un is Democrats”. God in the Democrats. Whoops.

    “New York was oppressively hot that summer and it was hotter still under the glare of the newsreel‐camera klieg lights. Delegates sat in their shirtsleeves, fanning themselves with handkerchiefs and palm‐leaf fans. The chairman the Democratie National Committee, Cordell Hull, fainted from the heat, was revived and fainted again.”

    [NYT July 7, 1924]

    All that was missing was someone to cut the power supply to the fans the night before, and then launch the climate change movement!

    What’s interesting about every version we were able to find of this claim, however, is that not one of them was published before 2000. During the entire 76 years between 1924, when the convention took place, and 2000, when it was first asserted that it was popularly known as the “Klanbake,” there appear to have been no published mentions of that “fact” at all.

    There you go … that’s “research” for you.

    • Mark S says:

      @ Tel Too bad Your research cherry picks what you want from the Snopes article. It also says “When the term “Klanbake” finally did reappear in print in connection with the 1924 convention (which occurred for the first time in the 8 March 2000 edition of the New York Daily News, the same publication in which it had been used originally), it was in the form of the assertion that “newspapers” (plural) had started applying the nickname while the convention was still in session. Again, however, we’ve found no evidence that the nickname was used prior to 2000 in any publication other than the Daily News.

      Shulman told us in an e-mail that no new evidence has come to light lending credence to the “Klanbake” meme and reiterated that it misrepresents the extent of the Klan’s influence over Democratic Party:

      The influence of the Klan on Republicans was much quieter but no less significant, as the 1920s Klan appealed to a much wider swath of the country than the earlier Klan of the 1860s had, or the Civil Rights Era Klan would later. ” The klan had its nasty racist tendrils everywhere, especially in the early 20th century when its political influence was at its peak. Let’s just be honest here.

      You believe Snopes, yet fail to believe documentary evidence that unequivocally contradicts them.

      There you go … that’s faith for you.

    • Mossimo Mobilito says:

      Thanks – This original post should be taken down as it seems debatable or at least subject to question or label as may or may not be true. Best to stick to the facts.

    • Robert Gipson says:

      Yeah … that’s “research” all right…by Snopes, a George Soros-funded man and wife team who are experts on … absolutely nothing.

      “The problem with the Facebook/Snopes partnership is that Snopes has a history of distorting facts when it comes fact-checking stories. Here are some of the most flagrant examples:
      • Snopes lied about visible American flags at the 2016 Democratic Convention and used images from different days as “proof.”
      • Snopes gave Live Action’s investigation that exposed Planned Parenthood’s lack of prenatal care services a “mostly false” rating despite admitting that many Planned Parenthood locations do not actually offer prenatal care, which is what Live Action set out to prove in the first place.
      • Snopes determined that Omar Mateen, the Orlando nightclub shooter, had an “unknown” political affiliation despite being registered to vote as a Democrat in the State of Florida.

      “Instead of conducting real research or performing investigations, Snopes regularly omits information while reposting the talking points it agrees with in order to present a very one-sided view. For example, this is how Snopes tried to explain Target’s devastating drop in stock price earlier this year:

      “Target shares did plunge on 28 February 2017, but it wasn’t due to its nearly year-old bathroom policy. The drop was due to 2017 guidance announced during an investor day event. Projections were far lower than expected by Wall Street analysts (the term “guidance” means projected earnings).

      “The spin from Snopes is that millions who have decided to shop #AnywhereButTARGET had absolutely no effect on “lower than expected” earnings and using Target’s own talking points as “proof.”

      “Ultimately, it’s concerning that in order to combat “fake news” Facebook would partner with a “fact-checking” organization that doesn’t always seem to care about all the facts. That makes us wonder if Facebook is partnering with Snopes, just like it has with Soros-backed organizations, because of Facebook’s own positions.

      I believe Tel made his “research” comment with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. Let’s avoid friendly fire.

    Great sleuthing!
    I’ve thought that at one time any town that was big enough to support two newspapers that one would be Republican.

  6. Hans dekkers says:

    Helle Tony. You have uploaded a video on YouTube today and I couldn’t watch it because it was a privat video and now it is gone. Was that on purpose or did youtube done that? Love your work

    What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!
