The American Left: Justifying Evil

The American left has become the victim of a great brainwashing, whether the ideologues realize it or not. Not only have they been stripped of their moral compass, rendered unable to tell right from wrong, but they are actively seeking destruction under the false pretense that they will liberate themselves and mankind. Instead, their unchecked action will lead to chaos, mass violence, and slavery to the state.

There are three main roots on the left’s shriveled tree of evil, which bears no fruit except immorality, decadence, and economic decay. The first is the Kantian ethic of equality, a categorical imperative that leads its believer to eschew reality for a beloved abstraction. The second is nihilism, described by Friedrich Nietzsche to mean a lack of belief in God, or more broadly, moral standards. The third is Marxism, which deludes its adherents into trading a voluntaristic economic system with individual protections for an authoritarian one with no systemic barriers to arbitrary state control.

Equality has become a fetish for leftists, causing them to overlook biological differences between men and women, adults and children, and even human beings and animals. The result is a degradation of human life, and by extension, sexuality. A prolonged period of such demoralization provides the preconditions for inhumane behavior.

Immorality blurs or obliterates the differences between right and wrong. Nihilism, in its academic form of relativism, and in its bureaucratic guise of pragmatism, removes all moral boundaries to state action.

Marxism is an inversion of moral economy. It twists production to mean theft, and theft to mean justice. It implies men are without agency, and scapegoats a system for individual human behavior, leading to irresponsibility and even entitlement demands on other human beings’ labor by virtue of merely being alive. It leads to enslavement of man to man, and all men chained to the state. It does this by convincing its true believers that if they only yield the state absolute power, someday, somehow, their utopia will come true.

A dominant Marxist website effectively admits as much, commenting on Karl Marx’s view of the state, as compared to Friedrich Engels‘:

On the basis of what facts, then, can the question of the future development of future communism be dealt with?

On the basis of the fact that it has its origin in capitalism, that it develops historically from capitalism, that it is the result of the action of a social force to which capitalism gave birth. There is no trace of an attempt on Marx’s part to make up a utopia, to indulge in idle guess-work about what cannot be known. Marx treated the question of communism in the same way as a naturalist would treat the question of the development of, say, a new biological variety, once he knew that it had originated in such and such a way and was changing in such and such a definite direction.

In other words, socialists are supposed to take on faith that once the economy is wrecked (including all attendant human misery that comes with it), after rioters have taken to the streets in an orgasm of social chaos, and by association, after the state is given complete control over the economy to redistribute wealth, we may see our imagined communist state. Then, as Engels so fantastically put it, the state will wither away.

But a social scientist can only empirically verify the past; and as one can easily can testify, there are no examples of even functional socialist states there. On the contrary, socialist countries are not even close to prosperity or their professed goal of material equality. The only countries that appear at first blush to be socialist while still enjoying high standards of living turn out to be predicated on capitalist systems, accruing considerable foreign trade income or engaging in high deficit spending, or both. These mainly European social welfare states are experiencing a slow demise rather than a shocking implosion.

The most drastic of the socialist regimes of the twentieth century are undeniably the bloodiest and most miserable. If we are to be scientists, as Marx exhorts us to be, let’s examine the facts. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics presided over a deadly and corrupt communist system that slaughtered at least 60 million humans and enslaved tens of millions more in gulags. Maoist China, through its ruthless and inept policies, ushered in the deaths of around 75 million people. The Khmer Rouge of Cambodia was among the most horrific, killing four million out of a nation of seven and a half million through what RJ Rummel describes as “war, rebellion, man-made famine, genocide, politicide, and mass murder.”

Yet the left, for all their feigned worldliness and knowledge about the human condition, ignores both the historical record and elementary political theory. Delivering totalitarian control to the state, for any rationale whatsoever, simply leads to evil; immoral men are drawn to power and use it to entrench their privileged places in society.

A solution has been crafted to untie the Gordian knot of how to preserve power sufficient to maintain domestic tranquility and to protect the country from foreign invasion without accumulating too much centralized control: divided powers as expressed in The Constitution and elaborated upon in Federalist 51. When combined with such precautions as private property and sound currency, the evils a cadre of men can commit is severely limited under such a governmental system. Whether or not good or evil flourishes in the world thus becomes predominately up to us.

What the obama Administration Has Taught America

Facebook Inc.’s $16 billion initial public offering has made Mark Zuckerberg the 29th richest carbon based life form on Earth. Facebook provides entertainment and a fun way to spend your leisure time. America should love Zuckerberg. Whatever happens, do not ever criticize him for not paying his fair share of taxes…he’s cool in the administration’s eyes and they’re down with whatever he does. Heck, he might even turn out to be as cool as George Clooney.

According to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the top three U.S. oil companies alone paid $42.8 billion in income taxes in 2010. Ignore that fact and describe them as evil billionaires who don’t pay their fair share. After all, the petroleum, coal and natural gas industries all provide cheap energy to America, which stands in the way of implementing the administration’s agenda to fuel America with recycled unicorn poop.

It’s OK for the New Black Panthers to stand in front of polling places, wearing uniforms, wielding clubs and intimidating white voters with taunts of “now you’ll find out what it’s like to be ruled by a black man”. It’s also OK for Eric Holder, who publicly said: “I am not the tall U.S. Attorney. I am the black U.S. Attorney” to drop all charges against them.

It’s not OK for a “white hispanic” to defend himself from attack by someone who’s black

Tea Party demonstrators, who obeyed the laws, obtained permits, and cleaned up after themselves when they peaceable assembled to petition their government for redress of grievances are violent, racist extremists who should be monitored by the Department of Homeland Security as potential homegrown terrorists.

Occupy Wall Street, who squatted on public and private land for weeks at a time without permit, cost cities across the nation millions in clean-up and other costs, engaged in rape, drug use, public sexual acts, attacked police, destroyed property and generally disrupted the normal flow of life are great patriots. They deserve the public support of Barrack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, the DCCC, Elizabeth Warren, Barney Franks, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Charlie Rangle, Dennis Kucinich, et al. As Nancy Pelosi said: “God bless them, for their spontaneity. It’s independent … it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused. And it’s going to be effective.”

When kids are failing in school after being subjected to exposure to incompetent teachers who couldn’t teach a dog to bark yet can’t be fired because they’re protected by unions, lower testing standards. The possibility of hurting a student’s feelings by giving them a failing grade couldn’t possibly pass politically correct, everyone has to feel good about themselves at all times muster.

If you’re a kid who wants to hold a bake sale, open a lemonade stand or engage in similar activities which demonstrate initiative, ambition or a desire to utilize the free market in order to better yourself, you must be trained to first beg permission from the government. And boys and girls of all ages, don’t ever forget broccoli is good for you and snack cakes, candy bars and chips are bad. Since you’re too stupid to make the proper decision, government is going to enact legislation that deprives you of the right to choose.

Whenever “progressive” politicians are caught in an outright lie about where they were born, their bloodlines or military service rendered it’s due to a clerical error. If criticism persists, blame someone else for each and every one of your failures. When all else fails, play the race card.

Choose Your Stimulus

The Spanish Economic Ministry denied there’s been a surge in withdrawals from the nation’s banks, while Spain’s Prime Minister warned that borrowing costs could reach “astronomical” proportions over fears about the weakness of Spain’s financial institutions.

Greeks have been taking their savings out of banks, with nearly a third taken out during this year’s first quarter. Since May 7th, at least 700m euros have been withdrawn from Greek banks. Uncertainty over Greece’s exit from the eurozone is stirring global fears about Europe’s monetary future.

France’s new socialist government will not ratify the European Union’s fiscal pact unless it contains stimulus provisions. “The treaty will not be ratified as is and that it must be completed with a chapter on growth, with a growth strategy,” said France’s new Finance Minister.

With a number of European countries again in recession, with zero growth in parts of the eurozone this year, calls for stimulus measures within Europe are growing.

Europe’s ideas about stimulating the eurozone economy will only lead the continent into deeper trouble. Taxing the rich, hiring more government employees and lowering the retirement age is not the way to create sustainable, long-term economic growth.

No matter how much money is raised through tax hikes, a portion of those funds are lost before they’re re-injected into the economy due to the cost of government overhead. That puts the stimulus process on negative footing before the discussion even turns to how the money’s to be spent, be it sending out welfare checks, funding food stamps or repaying political supporters by rewarding them with “shovel ready” government contracts.

Not that America should be overly concerned with Europe’s fate. Thanks to their scrupulous adherence to the dictates of political correctness and secular multiculturalism, they’ll be slaves to Sharia law in a few decades anyway.

America must learn from Europe’s mistakes.

Following down the path of taxing the rich, creating a cradle to grave entitlement society and continuous deficit spending in attempts to sustain a socialist utopian fantasy will destroy any country, including America.

Punitive taxing of the rich is a non-starter. Class envy warfare might be effective, emotionally charged rhetoric able to stir up a politician’s voter base, but it’s illogical. Were “those evil rich who don’t pay their fair share” in the U.S. to be taxed at a 100% rate, the revenue collected by the IRS would fund spending in Washington DC for a couple of months. Not years, a couple of months. How then would the government propose to pay for the rest of the year’s deficit spending? And after taxes have destroyed the wherewithal of the well off, who would then be taxed? Besides, rich folks, especially those engaging in successful business practices (as opposed to achieving wealth through inheritance or by winning the lottery) didn’t succeed because they’re imbeciles. If a country’s tax rates are unfavorable to their business, they leave that country and take their businesses, jobs and money with them. It’s not exactly climbing out on a limb to predict that a 100% tax rate would fall within their unfavorable category.

Creating a cradle to grave entitlement society is the best way to destroy initiative. It’s said that if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach that man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Imagine a group of one hundred people where only five know how to catch fish. In order to feed everyone every day, those five people would each need to catch twenty fish per day. How long would it take before some, if not all of those five fishermen grew tired of sharing their wealth with the other 95% and gave up fishing? On the other hand, if all the people were taught to fish and expected to catch their own, no individual would be responsible for catching more than one fish per day. If they managed to catch two fish per day, they will have created a surplus of wealth that benefits the entire group.

Continuing massive deficit spending obligates any nation’s budget to two unsavory alternatives. One is borrowing, which results in having to pay the money back with interest. Not only does being obligated to make those payments leave less money available to pay the cost of conducting regular business, it profits the lender to the detriment of the borrower. The other alternative is to devalue the currency by printing money, leading to inflation, which if left unchecked destroys the value of the country’s currency. Political instability caused by inflating the currency of the Weimar Republic led to the rise of Adolph Hitler. Shortages of hard currency led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

America has a choice to make. Shall it follow the smaller government design, complete with reduced spending, lower taxes, a growing free market economy and individual freedom preferred by the law abiding, peaceful Tea Party, whose lineage can be traced back to 1969 when the world joined Americans in viewing the pinnacle achievement of human history, the televised first moon landing? Or should America follow the design of the law breaking, violent Occupy Wall Street, who’s lineage can be traced back to Woodstock, the other big event of 1969, where unbathed people ingested copious amounts of drugs and rolled around in the mud having sex like animals?

As Conservative innovator and outspoken leader Andrew Breitbart said at the 2012 CPAC Convention in February: “I don’t care who our candidate is. I haven’t since the beginning of this. I will march behind whoever our candidate is because if we don’t, we lose. There are two paths: one is America, the other one is Occupy. Anyone that is willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left I will be in that bunker, and if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you, you’re on the other side.”

Occupy vs. Tea Party: The Series

YES! It is finally here! A reality television show that pits two of the most visible and vociferous political grassroots groups against each other in a battle of epic proportions.  Occupy vs. Tea Party is the brainchild of Mr. Gordon Gebert.  A musician by trade, Mr. Gebert hatched the idea of these two groups duking it out on live television upon seeing the growth of such activism after the coronation of Barack Obama.  He wanted a project that was fair, innovative, and fun in a time where politics is becoming all too personal. We can thank Hilary Rosen for that.  However, the dynamics of the show are actually quite interesting.

He said that the show’s will be in a one hour format (44 minutes with commercials) and will be a Survivor meets Big Brother meets Apprentice format.  Occupy and Tea Party contestants will be divided into teams of six with three females and three males on each side.  Each team will endure challenges, like in Survivor, and the winner would pick a debate topic for later in the program.  Gebert said “the meat of the show” is centered on the “Big Great Debate,” where we see our political allegiances duke it out in a battle royale over freedom, liberty, and the American way of life.  Gordon said he wanted to portray a debate that isn’t cut off by commercial breaks or abrupt endings due to time constraints, which I think a lot of us have felt frustrated about watching Hannity, The Five, or (gulp) MSNB—-(I can’t say it!)….the news in general!

At the conclusion of the debate, each side will vote a member off.  As a result, you will experience the typical fight to oust the lazy person, “the village idiot,” the poor debater, or the emotionally fragile. What fun!  The last two contestants will have one final Big Great Debate and the viewers will decide who won the contest.  Gordon feels that in similar programs, where voting off contestants is an integral part of the show, the viewer will find a Tea partier or, do I dare say, an Occupier, to connect with and will share in his or her dissapointment if they are voted off the program.

Gordon hopes that a major network will pick up the show for a weekly broadcast. He is currently raising funds to shoot the pilot episode for his summer preview.  However, if this show is picked up, then production will be given a budget to allow for such amenities and Mr. Gebert hopes that the increase in funds will enhance the quality of the show, provide more eye candy, and conduct more editing to help the narrative.  However, like in politics, it’s all about the money and if he can raise more than his targeted $50,000 budget for the pilot, he can pitch a better product to the network executives in early June or late July.  However, he knows the tough road ahead of him.  He admits that the only way he would be picked up by a major network is if they have a show that fails with audiences in their packed fall schedules.  Although, his optimism couldn’t be higher and there is always a few programs that don’t make the cut.  Case in point, Lone Star, 3 lbs, The Playboy Club, and The Paul Reiser Show were all sentenced to the chopping block.  At the very least, Occupy vs. Tea Party will be posted as a webisode on Youtube. This show has some serious potential and I wish Gordon Gebert the best in bringing this entertainment to a wider audience.

Yet Another Example of Socialism – Do As I Say, Not As I Do




And so it starts. France’s president-elect, Françoise Hollande, an avowed socialist, said on Friday, May 11, 2012, that Nicolas Sarkozy, outgoing president of France, underestimated France’s budget problems and wants a new audit of the books. Sound familiar? Is the “blame game” starting again?

Hollande said that the audit wouldn’t alter his plans to fulfill campaign pledges, including higher taxes on the rich, thousands of new teaching jobs, and freezes on some government spending. Hollande is predicting 1.7% growth in 2013, but the European Commission (EC) predicts 1.3% growth in 2013. Further, Hollande predicts a 3% deficit, but the EC forecasts 4.2% for 2013. Hollande campaigned on promises to end a push for austerity, saying France and other European countries need government stimuli to grow. Where have we heard that before?

So, with Hollande’s socialism bent and statements, let’s see how HE lives. Peter Allen, writing for the UK Daily Mail, reveals that Hollande owns a home and two apartments in the south of France, near the Riviera resort of Cannes, valued at almost €1.245 million. Hollande, who ‘dislikes the rich,’ is himself quite rich, with a self-declared worth of at least €1.2 million. He has bank accounts in three French banks, two with Societe Generale, and one with the Postal Bank. He rents a Paris apartment that he shares with his lover Valerie Trierweiler, a journalist.

Hollande likes to refer to himself as “Mr. Normal.”

Hollande says he will cut his pay by 30% after he is sworn in as President, but he will still receive €156,000 per year, plus fabulous expenses and other perks.

In France, Hollande proposes:

  • to establish a top tax rate of 75%
  • an increase in France’s controversial wealth tax, a proposal that has already seen wealthy people threatening to leave the country but will not effect Hollande as his wealth falls just below the threshold that would make him liable to pay wealth tax
  • to pour public money into France’s public service, creating thousands of new jobs (where have we heard that before?)
  • to threatened to block the eurozone’s new financial treaty unless Germany agrees to renegotiate its stringent austerity measures – he wants the treaty to focus more on economic growth

French Socialist Party spokesman Benoit Hamon said that the ‘politics of austerity’ was failing to improve the continent’s financial crisis. Benoit said that Hollande was determined to win a ‘trial of strength’ over the new fiscal pact, which aims to impose budgetary discipline on the 25 European Union countries who have signed up.

As British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money [to spend].”

Here we go again. I guess socialists never learn.

BTW, as of May 11, 2012, one US dollar ($) was worth 0.772903 Euro (€).

But that’s just my opinion.

“It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.” – Ronald Reagan

The Face of the United States “Forward”

President Obama takes offense when the word Socialism is used to describe his policies, but lately even the liberal media is giving ‘some’ focus to the president and his policies. As the contrast continues between President Obama’s slogan “Forward” and the same term used in Vorwärts written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels which was later used in Communist and Socialist propaganda the dissemination of the U.S. is a slow, but very real event. One doesn’t have to go far to realize this. Take any of the names from the Muslim Brotherhood, who are part of the President’s staff, or his past, and watch a U-tube video, or research their backgrounds.  We are not only living with the treat of Islam, Jihad – which is the installation of Shari’a Law, (www.conservativedailynews.com/didyouknow )  we are also moving toward Socialism.

How many people know the depth of Karl Marx or attempted to read his Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei (Communist Manifesto)? But more importantly is the knowledge and understanding of Marxism, and how it relates to what is truly at stake in this country. The progressive movement, socialism, or the move to dismantle the Constitution, along with other key factors, are what is really at stake here.  So who is Karl Marx anyway and why should I care?

Brief History of Karl Marx 

In short Karl Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883) was a man of many thoughts, but mainly known for being the author of Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei (The Communist Manifesto 1848) and the movements most important book, Das Kapital. The ideologies of Marx form the basis of thought found in Marxism.

Karl was the oldest surviving son of nine children. His father was a lawyer devoted to Kant and Voltaire. Both his parents were Jewish, but prior to the birth of Karl his father converted and was baptized in the Evangelical Established Church. Karl was baptized at the age of seven. He was an educated man who was influenced by liberal teachers, radical social policies of the Enlightenment, and by discrimination of the times which was probably what really enticed him to look for social change. In college Marx was introduced to the philosophy of Hegel where he became involved with the Young Hegelians. “At first he felt a repugnance toward Hegel’s doctrines; when Marx fell sick it was partially, as he wrote his father, “from intense vexation at having to make an idol of a view I detested.” The Hegelian pressure in the revolutionary student culture was powerful, however, Marx joined a society called the Doctor Club, whose members were intensely involved in the new literary and philosophical movement. Their chief figure was Bruno Bauer, a young lecturer in theology, who was developing the idea that the Christian Gospels were a record not of history but of human fantasies arising from emotional needs and that Jesus had not been a historical person. Marx enrolled in a course of lectures given by Bauer on the prophet Isaiah. Bauer taught that a new social catastrophe “more tremendous” than that of the advent of Christianity was in the making. The Young Hegelians began moving rapidly toward atheism and also talked vaguely of political action.  The Prussian government, fearful of the subversion latent in the Young Hegelians, soon undertook to drive them from the universities. Bauer was dismissed from his post in 1839. Marx’s “most intimate friend” of this period, Adolph Rutenberg, an older journalist who had served a prison sentence for his political radicalism, pressed for a deeper social involvement. By 1841 the Young Hegelians had become left republicans.” http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/367265/Karl-Marx

Later, after Marx received his degree he became engaged and married Jenny von Westphalen, the two moved to Paris which was the center of socialist thought and ideals of communism. There, Marx first became a revolutionary and a communist and began to associate with communist societies of French and German workingmen. Their ideas were, in his view, “utterly crude and unintelligent,” but their character moved him: “The brotherhood of man is no mere phrase with them, but a fact of life, and the nobility of man shines upon us from their work-hardened bodies,” he wrote in his so-called “Ökonomisch-philosophische Manuskripte aus dem Jahre 1844” (written in 1844;Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844 [1959]). (These manuscripts were not published for some 100 years, but they are influential because they show the humanist background to Marx’s later historical and economic theories.) http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/367265/Karl-Marx

As time progressed Marx became more engulfed in Communism and the ideals of the left. The significance of his writings found in the Communist Manifesto, et.al., are an important part of history. They represent an interesting contrast to what is happening in the United States and the Constitution of the United States. It is critical for people to find their own interpretations and look for their own answers when trying to make decisions relevant to what is the best interest of the United States and her citizens. Karl Marx, like most people today, became fed up with the issues relevant to his time, but choosing the wrong path can ultimately lead to the demise of fundamental expectations. In the Communist Manifesto he describes what is necessary to destroy a free enterprise system (Ten Planks) and replace it with a communist socialist state. The ten tenants (Planks) of Communism are strikingly similar to that of the American counterparts. The dissemination of our own Constitution appears to be in the works.

Marxism in a Nutshell

According to Karl Marx, three phases are necessary in order to convert a society to communism:

1. The total destruction of any existing system

2. Wealth must be collectivized by a leader who emerges to take control of the populous choices of education, religion, employment, and private property ownership

3. Utopia is then achieved by government control

Marx describes the existence of these 10 essential tenets:

1. A centralized banking system

2. Government controlled education

3. Government controlled labor

4. Government ownership of transportation and communication

5. Government ownership of agriculture and factories

6. Abolition of private property ownership

7. Private property right confiscation

8. Heavy income tax

9, Elimination of the right of inheritance

10. Regional governmental planning

Communist leaders also recognized the need to discourage albeit abolish religion. Religion is seen as antithetical and dangerous.

The 10 Planks of Marxism:

1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

The 5th Amendment clearly states the government cannot take a persons property for public use without giving them just compensation. This is known as the “Takings” Clause, because it gives the government the right to “take” property. But the 5th Amendment Eminent Domain Clause in the Bill of Rights states: “…nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” The lines become somewhat ambiguous when the government has the power to determine what is “just.” The land is meant to be used for public good or necessity such as highways, libraries, schools, and so on. Government officials have consistantly abused their powers as seen in cases listed below. You can also read more: http://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/eminent-domain-clause.html#ixzz1uEh0mWLt

Some Eminent Domain Cases:

Penn Central v. New York City (1978) 

Dolan v. City of Tigard (1994)

Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Com’n. (1992)

Tahoe Preservation Council v Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (2002)

Kelo v City of New London (2005)

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

This one really speaks for itself. The lack of understanding here regarding corporate taxes and this administrations propaganda to push the American people under the pretext that the “rich can pay more“ is at core of this tenant. The United States has the highest taxes on corporations than any other country in the world including Japan.  Large Corporations are not expanding,  they are leaving the U.S., and small businesses are going bankrupt. This is by far one of the greatest tenants of Communism whereby the rich will stay rich and everyone else will subside equally at the mercy of the government. These outrageous corporate taxes will continue to drain the American Economy while reducing corporate growth, salary increases, and job creation.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

For Karl Marx this particular tenant was put in place so no single person would ever have a right to property, whether real or personal under any kind probate law — there would be no inheritance. In the United States Americans call it the “Death Tax” which the name alone should speak for itself. The argument American’s should hold to, other than the fact that the taxes are not going to the states, is that the property is being taxed twice once when the person is alive and purchased it, and then again with inheritance tax when the person dies, which is clearly unethical, unlawful, and unjust by any standards.

4. Confiscation of the property of all Immigrants and rebels. 

This particular issue pertains to Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security’s scrutiny of what they refer to as “homegrown militias.” A keynote case involved Michigan Militia who acted in the name of Hutaree.  They were accused of conspiring to overthrow the government, planning to assassinate a police officer, and attempting to incite an uprising against the Federal government by bringingg explosives to the officers funeral. The attack at the funeral never happened, yet Eric Holder felt inclined to raid the Hutaree outposts, and confiscate its members’ guns. In March 2012 the serious charges against the group were dismissed – a shocking slap in the face of the Federal government. The presiding judge concluded “hatred of the government did not amount to conspiracy to overthrow it.” To read more about that case go to: http://dig.abclocal.go.com/wls/documents/Hutaree-evidence.pdf

The second amendment is slowly but surely being taken away enabling government to tighten its grip over its citizens. It is one of the main events that occurred by the Soviets. Disarming its citizens allowed the Soviets the ability to maintain absolute power over its people.  In the United States this happens under the disguise of: government seizures, tax liens, Public law 99-570 (1986), Executive order 11490- sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development,  the imprisonment of ‘terrorists’ and those who speak out or write against the government (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill), or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.  Asset forfeiture laws are used by DEA, IRS, ATF, and so on.  Another example: on March 7, 2012 the ACLJ Defends Tea Party Groups From IRS Assault. To read about this go to: http://aclj.org/free-speech-2/aclj-defends-tea-party-groups-from-irs-assault  It is important to recognize how the government is becoming more and more like “Big Brother,” it continues to grow in wealth and power while the American people and their rights become antiquated relics of the past.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. The Federal Reserve sets the nations monetary policy, controls the American economy, guides interest rates, and controls inflation. The way the reserve is continually printing money devalues our currency, hence the cost of goods and services rise.  All local banks are members of the Federal system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation.

6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.

Americans call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver’s licenses and Department of Transportation regulations. You may recognize some of these things such as Amtrak which is a government owned entity, the Interstate Hwy System, Federal Aviation Authority to name a few. The railroad went from privately owned to government owned.  Amtrak is the ONLY passenger train/rail in the country and it is owned by the Federal government.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

Again, too many to list here, but we can begin with all the bailouts for the auto industry beginning with GM. But other aspects could be found under The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

Clearly the power of Labor Unions, the fact the President receives substantial amounts of money from Unions, Unions ( along with Soros) financing of Occupy Wall Street groups, and their unrelenting presence in the workplace all represent the 8th tenant. There is the Department of Labor, Woman in the workplace since the 1920’s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000. Again, so much of this has been in the news with the WI elections and other state issues where the President attempts to use his powers to overstep and mandate all aspects of the American people.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.

One of the largest government owned power companies is the Tennessee Valley Authority (http://www.tva.gov/ ) which clearly defines socialism at its finest. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also supports the idea of socialism by forcing business to comply with more stringent restrictions in the form of cap and trade and by mandating the purchase of carbon credits.

10. Free education for all children in public schools.

Ah the public education system, I could go on for decades here, but one example would be when the government decides what a child needs over the parent, for example what children should eat, (Michelle Obama). Another would be tenure with teachers. It is ridiculous how these teachers cannot be fired. Let’s not forget how the government has removed any form of Christianity (Christmas Vacation now Winter break etc), altered the Pledge of Allegiance, while turning a blind eye to teaching about Islam, as well as moral issues disguised under the word “tolerance.”

I had a dream. About a Jackbooted Beauty

This morning I had a dream. About a jackbooted beauty.

In the dream I was on a train. An old fashioned passenger car, something like the old steamer engines pulled. Inside the car were many other passengers of higher station than me, Diplomats, Advisors, and Politicians.

Along both the sides of the car were couches and private curtained areas. Down the middle were picnic bench-like seats separated at lengths with enough space for people to walk through to either side as they wished. I was sitting at the end of one such section crammed against two aristocratic looking men. The tables were all full and seats were rare.

“I don’t know what the Democrats could be planning with the Middle East,” one said to the other.

“What could you mean? They do not have a plan. The region is tearing itself apart on its own. No one plans such things,” the other answered.

“Israel cannot stand alone there. Without her the party will lose support back home. Someone needs to step in and take control of the situation,” the first man spoke.

Sounding more like two men thinking out loud than in a conversation with each other.

Both men were dressed in the style of the 1910’s. Heavy woolen clothes marked with medals and sashes. The man closest to me was bald with a head spotted by brown freckles. The other man had slicked back brown hair and a well trimmed proud mustache.

They went on in their detached conversation and I had no other choice but to listen until finally I rose up from my seat and looked down at the bald man and said, “I could tell you what the hell is going on but I am just a lay-person what the hell can I have to say that matters at all to you people, right.”

The two men looked at each other and the bald one spoke to me, to my back anyway. In my passion of anger I had turned away from them once I had spoken my peace. So sure that such elite men would have no time for a regular person such as me, dressed in a plain cotton shirt, cheap ill-fitted pants held up with suspenders.

“Come sit down. Tell us what you think,” the bald man said to me. He even stood up and put a hand on my shoulder to encourage my turning back and sitting. His voice was calm. His slick haired acquaintance looked both amused and disgusted at the thought of having me speak and him listening.

I did sit down and reluctance to bother. Elitists did not listen to the people below them. No in the elite minds of the world they were the only ones to speak, the rest of us were to listen and obey.

“You want to know what the plan is,” I asked the bald man looking him in the eyes then giving his friend a glance that looked away as if bored already, “the plan is to let Israel die and the Middle East catch on fire for no other reason than pursuit of power.”

Already some people who had heard my first words people were moving away. Baldy was still looking back at me unwavering and seeming earnest in wanting to hear what I had to say.

“What better way to bring about the ruin of a great nation than to wear down its people until they welcome any change,” I asked but did not wait for an answer, “Why would it be in the world’s interest to tear down Egypt? To bring down Mubarak and remove an ally?”

“He had to go because he was a dictator,” the bald man interrupted.

“He was a moderate and an ally. Our militaries trained together and the country was stable. I have been there, have you? Then Libya. What was Libya doing that needed to have revolution backed by the Oval Office? Kaddafi was not doing anything, again the country was stable and after 9/11 Kaddafi swore off his nuclear program. What was the threat from him, another dictator he was, but at least a calm one.

“Meanwhile the student protests in Iran go ignored. In Syria the streets are running with the blood of her citizens at the hands of a hard-line dictator. Not a peep is made to stop the killing from the White House. The Party wants murderous dictators to rule that region. How else to enact revolutionary uprisings and all out warfare? Keep the hatreds of the area smoldering until reaching a flash-point.”

As I spoke more seats become available at the bench I was at. Curtains closed around couches here and there. For many, the ideas I was speaking are to be ignored. Yet my new found bald friend still seems to be listening.

“You said Israel cannot be left to stand alone,” nodding to the slick haired guy, “Sure, the Party can let that little country can be left to stand alone to be overrun by ‘Allah Akbar’ screaming enraged Muslims who have been taught from birth to exterminate the Jews for the love of Allah. That all the world’s problems are because of the Jews and that once they are all dead everything will be perfect. We have a similar version of that storyline between two demographics in the United States,” more curtains closed at those words, “The Democrat Party has no fear in Israel being wiped away from the world as American Jewish are so entrenched in the Party they would never vote any other way than for Democrats. Hell, many segments of those following the Party would celebrate the genocide of the Jewish people of Israel as they too believe Jews to be evil and to blame. Afterwards, if it should ever happen, both Jews and their jubilant in the destruction of Israeli counterparts will stand side-by-side at a polling station and vote for the Party”

By then the train car could have been empty. About half of the other passengers had hidden themselves away. Those people not concealed where either pretending not to be hearing or were looking in silence at me.

A woman came in with two children, boys about nine and ten years old. While the kids made their way about the car laughing and talking their mother came and sat next to the bald man, giving him a kiss. The slick haired friend had left his seat at some point in my speech without my even noticing so intent I was in having my say since finally having been asked.

“My wife,” he said in introductions between us. She was a gorgeous woman with short cropped black hair and olive skin. She wore some gold around her neck that draped in contrast to a well fitted black conservative yet casual dress that went past her knees. She gave off an impression of being happy and content while making herself at home at the bench, as if she had lived there all her life. She smiled at me and I went on.

“But you want to know what the plan is,” I asked resetting the conversation, “the plan has been going on for a long time. To destroy America’s religions through open and active hostilities as well as infiltrate the message of God in the churches to fit the narrative of the government. Uproot the traditions of the family, make government the mother and father. Remove fathers all together and hand out rewards for doing so. Absolve citizens of personal responsibility over their lives. Every bad-deed committed by a person can be traced back to some manufactured slight against them in the past. Destroy the private sector middle class and replace it with a contrived government one. Take over education not to teach but to indoctrinate students, even to the point of turning them against their parents. ”

I paused to look around. Those people who were left out in the open were staring right at me. Some faces had a non to happy look on them. No sense in stopping then, I was on a roll. As I got my breath and was about to start again the two boys that had come in with the Cleopatra-like beauty began going to the front of the train car. I stopped and watched the boys while everyone paid attention to me.

The oldest boy reached for the door set into the trains’ front and pulled the doors lever set in its middle. The door didn’t open, it was no longer there. There was no other train car in front of ours or an engine to be seen. There was nothing to see. A blank white standing rectangle was all to be seen. No light existed or shown. It was simply. Nothing.

Stepped off into the nothing the boys went without a peep either from them of anyone in the car. Not even their parents. Their mother looked at her husband and told him to go get the boys, a request he ignored so both sat in their seats. Looking back at me they expected me to go on so I did.

“Once the country is under attack from within it will be necessary to begin turning the people against each other. No matter how light the grievance it must be exploded and amplified. Tear down all unity and patriotism. Have everyone looking out for themselves and screw everyone else,” I looked over the people looking back at me. Certain that with them being the elite they would understand that point completely, “next the Party has but one institution to destroy, the Military.

“Through political correct principles service members will be taught that it is better for them to die than to kill their enemy. An enemy who is embraced by the Commander in Chief in front of the soldiers sent to fight. Words of encouragement from the Commander in the Oval Office are reserved for the militants and followers of death and martyrdom. Unity will be destroyed within the branches by forcing political ideals into military doctrine. Instead of serving the Constitution the military will be forced to serve the Party. Soldiers who have pride, patriotism, love of country and service will be forced to leave military service and others will be discouraged from joining.

“How does the Party keep good men and women from serving in the last bastion of American pride,” I asked looking around. Turning in my seat I faced the people behind me who had been breathing down my neck, “you deploy those soldiers over and over until they don’t re-enlist. You give them more wars that have no definition of goals and when defending themselves soldiers are slandered and punished by both their leaders who sent them and the Party’s media lap dogs. Cut benefits and retirement pay. Make it easier to collect government welfare than to apply for aid from Veterans Affairs for wounds both physical and mental incurred during combat operations,” making my right hand into a fist I pushed it hard, twisting back and forth into the palm of my left, “you grind and grind away at the military until no one wants to join. And when very few do with the right traditional values of the once proud organization the Party fills the ranks with who it wants to have armed to the teeth with state of the art killing equipment.”

By that point even the bald man had left for some other place to sit. His wife however had stayed and was staring at me hard with bright eyes and a predator’s visage. She moved toward me. I had to lean back in against the bench top at her advancement. Partially straddling me she looked down into my eyes. Her black hair hung toward my face but it was those eyes I wondered about as well as those longer and sharper canines grinning down at me.

“Tell your story, it doesn’t matter even the slightest,” she began saying as she, like a creature of great agility slid back to her place on the bench seat, “We have been at work for a much longer time than you will ever know and as you can see by looking around; no one is paying you any attention other than me,” of which she spoke true. Not another person was listening or caring and had gone from hiding away from my speech to going on about whatever distraction they pursued.

“After all that what is to happen next,” she asked taunting me.

“When everything has been put into place, the pillars of American society pulled down. The bonds that bind America together have been cut and neighbor has been set against neighbor,” looking around the car away from her bright eyes that seemed hold unspeakable evil lit behind them no one was watching the engagement between her and me, “then the jackboots of the Party come marching in to crush the throat of freedom. Everything else, even if it means creating World War Three coming across the globe spread from the Middle East, every event will be but a means to an end. Freedoms end. Global Dictatorship ruling human beings beginning.”

With those final words of mine from behind I was grabbed at the shoulders and pushed to the floor. A black leather boot that ran tight against the woman’s calf was pushed down over my neck while strong arms held me from getting up. My blood and air were cut off and my vision was shrinking as if I was falling down a well. Before I woke up from that dream the last words from the woman in black were, “you’re too late and of no importance.”

Then I woke up.

Look Who’s Jet-Setting on the Taxpayer Dime This Week

While many Americans are cutting back on household budgets to put $4.00 a gallon gasoline in their vehicles to get back and forth to work, a couple of Obama-appointed government employees have been caught jet-setting to Paris and Tokyo recently. Just like Obama claiming that his current taxpayer-funded reelection campaign blitz and fundraisers are “policy speeches,” when the news about these lavish jet-setters taxpayer-funded trips to Tokyo and Paris reaches the American public, they can expect numerous phony excuses as to why they are supposedly on “official business.”  Rob Bluey, of Hot Air.com outed these two taxpayer-abusing, elitist jet-setters as follows:

While many Americans were filling up their tanks with $4 gasoline this week, Energy Secretary Steven Chu was enjoying Major League Baseball’s opening game on a taxpayer-funded trip to Tokyo. Taxpayers were also footing the bill for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to spend a few days in Paris.

Chu was outed by The Washington Gaurdian’s John Soloman when he discovered a picture sent by Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s official taxpayer-funded twitter account of a baseball game in Tokyo Japan. Meanwhile, Lisa Jackson, she of this EPA-fame, was in Paris France, to “meet with environmental leaders from more than 40 nations to discuss the Agency’s international efforts on urban sustainability.”  Global government, when coupled with so-called urban sustainability and climate change fear-mongering propaganda, are basic anti-capitalistic stealth forms of Socialism, which is dependent on the Marxist principles of wealth redistribution through the overthrowing of established governments to enact social justice fraud.

Lisa Jackson, the lifelong global warming political activist fits right in with the urban sustainability pimps of Europe, which by the way, is in the middle of the worst economic crisis in modern history. All of these anti-capitalist mandates coming out of these types of U/N European Socialistic programs are dependent on one thing for survival: The blatant theft of American wealth to be “redistributed” to the less productive societies of the world through dishonest fear-mongering from globalists and environmental terrorists posing as green-earth saviors. Thus the Obama administration uses taxpayer dollars to fund Jackson’s lavish Paris gig… to further undermine American sovereignty and take away her freedom that has made American freedom the envy of the world for centuries.

Do Americans really want four more years of watching Obama-appointees fly around the world to promote the injection of these types of freedom-robbing European Socialism here in America?  When Americans go to the polls in November they have a simple choice: Either vote for American freedom and prosperity through voting for proven conservative politicians, or vote for Obama and the Democrat’s poverty-inducing European Socialism-style insolvency.  The choice is that simple.

 

 

Senate Socialists Bailout Buffoonery Continues

The United States Senate, led by Liberal Democrat Harry Reid, is lining up at the taxpayer-funded debt-lovers cash trough again this week in the form of trying to “fix” another crisis of their own making. Meet  S. 1789  , or as today’s Senate Progressives call it, the 21st Century Postal Act of 2012: A bill to improve, sustain, and transform the United States Postal Service. This bill is sponsored by the lifelong fake Democrat posing as an Independent, Joe Lieberman. (L-D-CT) This USPS bailout bill  poses as a bi-partisan piece of work based on the support of the co-sponsorship from another fake Republican posing as a moderate, Susan Collins. (RINO-ME) The cost of the Senate-Progressives-USPS-bailout bill to the U.S. taxpayers? A cool $41 billion soon-to-be-borrowed taxpayer dollars.

For a more detailed understanding of just why the taxpayer is being forced to bailout the USPS by Senate Progressives this week, check out The United States Postal Ponzi Scheme.

It is none other than the U.S. Government itself that has caused this most recent “crisis” that threatens to shut down the USPS. In the words of Mr. Donahoe, the Postmaster General himself back in the summer of 2011, we see glimpses of the big government intervention causing the collapse of what was once a proud, viable U.S. Mail delivery system:

“The Postal Service is in a crisis today because it operates within a restrictive business model and has limited flexibility to respond to a changing marketplace,” To which he added, “We need the ability to operate more as a business does. This applies to the way we provide products and services, allocate resources, configure our retail, delivery and mail processing networks and manage our workforce.” (emphasis added)

That info-byte above is the Postmaster General of the USPS himself, begging the wizards of Congress to allow him to reform the USPS system so that they would not have to be bailed out in 2012 by the taxpayers due to the impending insolvency. Congress basically said no, and refused to allow Mr. Donohue to enact the needed reforms. Enter S. 1789, which also has another progressive debt-loving fake Republican on the co-sponsor’s list, Sen. Scott Brown. (RINO-MA) While select politicians and D.A.M. media operatives will hail this USPS bailout bill as bi-partisan during the coming weeks, it in fact, only has the support of Progressive Senators who are lining up trying to score political points for the upcoming elections.

The description of S. 1789 claims that is it designed to sustain,improve, and transform the U.S, Postal System. What will the $41 billion borrowed tax dollars be used for? As Daniel Horowitz  informs the citizenry, “This time, taxpayers will be tapped for another $41 billion to subsidize the healthcare retirement benefits of postal workers – benefits that are quite scarce in the private sector.”  The Progressive Senators USPS Bailout Bill of 2012 will not in fact “reform” the USPS into a more business-like sustainable entity, as claimed, but once again kicks the insolvency can down the road and opens the door to never-ending taxpayer bailouts of the dysfunctional, unsustainable USPS, much like the Progressive thievery  of the past two decades known as the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac “everyone deserves a house, regardless of ability to pay” programs that led to the housing and mortgage crisis. For a look into another reason for the USPS insolvency, check out the Liberal election-buying Union manipulation that is also behind this scheme, please see The USPS is Broke.

Call up your Senators this week, demand that they say no to the Progressive USPS Bailout Bill of 2012, (S.1789) and let every single one of them know you will be paying close attention to their votes on it.

A Letter To All Members of Clergy in America

To all who read this, please share with your pastor, priest, or minister. They need to see this and understand their rights to speak as well as our rights to hear.

To all members of Clergy in America,
The moral, ethical, and societal situation in our nation today is dire to say the least. An out of control government that does not respond to the wishes of We the People is taking control of every aspect of our lives and implementing a dictatorial oligarchy. Freedom of speech/expression is all but gone unless that speech/expression espouses everything Godless, evil, and despicable.

What I am writing may or may not apply to you. If you are not one of the ones I write about don’t take offense but rather accept my thanks for standing for freedom and Christian values against an increasingly tyrannical government. If this does apply to you please take it to heart and think about what your position in society is, and how you are carrying out your calling from God. In writing this I am doing my best to fulfill my calling, my commission from God.

I find it disconcerting that members of the clergy are either on board with this governmental abuse of power or afraid to speak out against it. I don’t know where each of you stand on issues of government tyranny and the restrictions on preaching true biblical tenets but I do know too many either agree with what the government is doing or have been intimidated into silence on the most important issues facing America today.

I see history repeating itself in horrendous terms. I was born shortly after World War II and clearly remember the situation that led to the Holocaust. When Hitler took over in Germany there were somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 churches in that nation. When he started his pogrom against the Jews there were only 84 pastors who stood up to oppose what he was doing. Most of those 84 were executed outright and others died in concentration camps.

Those who stood for the Bible and the values of God were martyred for their beliefs. Sadly, almost all of those who should have led the charge against Hitler’s tyranny sat on the sidelines to save their own skins and denied their calling for their own safety. This is not God’s idea of a shepherd, at least not to my understanding.

I see this happening again, in America today. I wonder why the leaders of the Christian community are silent. Pastors John Hagee of San Antonio and Robert Jeffress of Dallas are a couple of the more outspoken critics of what is happening but I know of very few others who are standing for true Christianity. It seems very few other clergy members have the courage to defy the perversion of the 1st Amendment and are willing to exercise the most important freedom guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. I realize I only attend one church but I see and have contact with thousands of people through the internet and my impression is that I am right on the button with my comments.

I know that there are several reasons why pastors won’t speak out. I have heard it said that if they speak out against government overreach and truly preach on the more controversial biblical principles, such as that against homosexuality or pre-marital sexual activity, that people will leave because they don’t want to hear that message. The churches could collapse from lack of donations so they have to be careful what they say from the pulpit in order to keep the attendance and money flow coming. If this is the reason a pastor won’t speak out my sadness deepens. Some fear the possibility of “hate speech” charges being brought if they speak out against immorality. I have also heard it said that they can’t preach certain things because of the “separation of church and state”. If this last point is your concern, let me educate you a bit.

This quaint little phrase is not in the Constitution. The 1st Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;…..”. It says freedom of RELIGION, not freedom of WORSHIP as has been the latest propaganda coming from the White house and Obama’s minions. The term separation of church and state came from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury, Connecticut Baptist Association in 1802. The state government of Connecticut was trying to establish a denominational control over their state, trying to establish a Church of England style worship, and make it mandatory. The Danbury Baptist group asked Jefferson for help and he told them, in a two page letter, that no government entity can establish such a rule due to the separation of church and state. In 1947 Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black turned 8 words from that two page letter into a decision that totally perverted the meaning of the 1st Amendment. Freedom OF religion suddenly became freedom FROM religion, well freedom from public Christianity anyway.

The government and the courts have turned this perversion into a “no public expression of Christianity” edict. This position doesn’t carry over to Islam, atheism, or any of the many cults in existence today. Atheism has been acknowledged as a religion by the courts but only Christianity is held to the standards of no public displays of faith. When Christians see the clergy accepting this government position and doing nothing they assume the government and the courts are correct because they don’t know what the Constitution says. That Americans have no clue what their founding document says is sad enough in itself. The fact that their church leaders have no better understanding is even worse.

I am saddened when the activism I see from clergy is that of calling for government control of everything. “Ministers” and priests are out in the public eye decrying our freedom and demanding that the government give what doesn’t belong to them to those who refuse to help themselves. Jesus himself said that the man who does not work should not eat. These same clergy members preach hate from the pulpit but are excused because their message is politically correct, and against Christianity. Jeremiah Wright, Michael Pfleger, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton all stand out in public preaching hate, racism, divisiveness, and dependence on government. They need to be countered by true men and women of God who will preach the true message of the Bible, not the message of some pseudo-god they worship.

Our nation is going down the sewer of Godlessness and our clergy are allowing it to happen. Most of the members of your congregation are not going to be as outspoken and forward as I am. Most of them probably know very little, if anything, about their freedom or their heritage. They look to you not only for spiritual guidance but also for the courage to get out in the community and be seen, to stand up for their rights and the freedom given to all of us by Almighty God. It is up to you to teach them about the Christian heritage of our nation, and to be proud of that heritage instead of hiding it in the closet.

Freedom doesn’t come from government or from a document. The Declaration of Independence says; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Our founding fathers recognized God as our creator, our benefactor, and our ultimate judge. If we continue to turn our backs on God, our founding documents, and our responsibilities as American citizens we will soon find ourselves living under a brutal dictatorship that will not allow any public Christian worship at all.

It is your responsibility as leaders appointed by God Himself to stand up for the Christian heritage of the nation He designed with His own hand. We the People, Christian and non-Christian, need for you to take on the tough part of your commission from God and lead us back to the promised land, a proudly Christian America.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

The Successful Desensitization of the American Voter

Of course no good-hearted American wants socialism or communism, but after more than 90 years of progressive desensitization, it’s becoming much more acceptable.

In September of 1919, the Communist Party of the United States (CPUS) was formed as a counter to the Socialist Party of America (SPA). CPUS differed with SPA on one critical issue – the strategy to use to rid the United States of capitalism. While SPA wanted to see organized, militaristic direct action (bombings, armed insurretion, violence against those who disagreed with them), the CPUS wanted to focus on electoral politics – a strategy still used today by America’s Big-Labor unions.

For almost a century, a socialist influence has moved slowly and patiently to bring the last best hope for true economic and social freedom to a cataclysmic end. The tools of class warfare, social justice and false equality have been used to slowly de-sensitize the American populace so that socialistic ideas could take hold and win in election years. Statements like “taking care of our seniors”, “healthcare for all”, “protecting the working poor”, “defending the middle-class”, “making the rich pay their fair share” and more are intended to guilt American voters into trading self-reliance and liberty for government entitlements, dependence and security. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety

Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the United States is a call to arms for Socialism. Such fundamentalism – as Benjamin Gitlow who was arrested as a communist revolutionary in 1919 – attested at his trial in 1920 is central to the socialist agenda:

The socialists have always maintained that the change from capitalism to socialism would be a fundamental change, that is, we would have a complete reorganization of society, that this change would not be a question of reform; that the capitalist system of society would be completely changed and that that system would give way to a new system of society based on a new code of laws, based on a new code of ethics, and based on a new form of government.

  • The government has gone so far as to first take over an American company (GM), then hand ownership to the Union after stripping investors of their rightful stake.
  • Both GE and GM have been heavily pressured by the government to do its bidding – even to the detriment to each business
  • The blackmailing of Boeing by the NLRB as favor to the labor unions
  • Health Care Reform will be the death of the Health Care industry the way we know it – before long, only the government will be left
  • A late Friday executive order by Barack Obama allowing the government more control over the centralized manufacturing and distribution of goods (see: definition of socialism)

Nothing scary here right?

So while not technically socialism by Merriam-Webster’s definition, Crony Socialism or Socialism-light at a minimum is running rampant in our government – how long until the next step is taken?

Just 10 years ago, did anyone believe that the government would have taken over a public company, raided Gibson guitars without cause, given the President the power to direct manufacturing and output, told an aircraft company where it may or may not build a factory, forced terrible health insurance down American’s throats, subsidized something so awful as the Chevy Volt or turned California farms into desert to save an inedible fish?

But the lights aren’t flashing, buzzers aren’t sounding yet are they?

A recently publicized video of Attorney General Eric Holder stating that the leftists must brainwash American’s against gun ownership is a testament to the strategy of the progressive socialists. Fast and Furious was but one attempt to make the gun industry into a distasteful and hated villain – even though it was the government itself being the terrorist, criminal and facilitator of murder.

Yet, the outcry is minimal. The alarm is only sounding in the deepest corners of the Pro-American right. Even Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has rejected the idea that socialism can be used to describe Barack Obama. Why not call it what is is: a 21st century brand of crony-socialism and go after the current administration? Perhaps because of the backlash from the American voters. The electorate has already been so numbed to the ideals and actions of the administration that they no longer see these activities as a threat to the basic fabric that created the greatest nation on Earth. Voters have been so desensitized to these activities that they no longer see them as reprehensible, wrong and detrimental to the American way of life.

American voters are railing against those who would toe the line against socialism. Falling in-line with the talking points of the left, a large portion of the electorate does not believe that those in Congress should be reversing the growth of government by budgetary restriction. So many now owe a portion of their subsistence to the government or soon will that they have no choice but to bend to the will of the ever more powerful central government – exactly what the founders wanted to prevent, the progressive socialists have worked so hard for and of which de Toqueville warned.

While professing “give-and-take”, socialist progressives aren’t actually giving anything. The right is asking for budget cuts and the left has not been able to even hold the deficit steady while in control of congress. The Democrat-controlled Senate hasn’t offered a budget in the entirety of Obama’s term and the President has not yet demanded one. Despite concerns from the Congressional Budget Office, Americans are not demanding reforms to government spending to prevent America from falling into the same debt trap that has the European Union teetering on the brink of economic collapse.

And again – no sirens, no media outcry, and the size of anti-big government rallies is dwindling. Americans are slowly accepting a long-term, dire fate in trade for self-serving gifts from the public treasury.

Nothing to see here folks, please move along.

The Obamacare Prayer Vigil(s)

Have you heard that the White House is planning a “prayer vigil” for Obamacare outside the Supreme Court “right when justices plan to hear arguments for three days beginning March 26″? Isn’t it quite intriguing that an Administration that touts their skewed view of “separation of Church and State” now prepares to call on the Name of God Almighty to push their liberal agenda through.

“When you spread out your hands in prayer,
I hide my eyes from you;
even when you offer many prayers,
I am not listening.

Your hands are full of blood!” ~ GOD (Isaiah 1:15)

The magnitude of this Scripture is astounding! Just at face value alone, the words virtually leap off the screen, a resounding rebuke to an Administration who’s arrogance knows no boundary. When you dig deeper, looking at every facet of this Scripture, it is a true testament that the Word of God is applicable today.

This Administration- this country, in reality, has so much innocent blood on her hands. However, there is also the Scripture regarding God’s wrath on those who go against Him- Romans 1:28 sums it up, but again, the entire chapter of Romans 1 describes current times exactly.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

In reading the originally article, another passage of Scripture came to mind. You can read the entire passage here in 1 Kings 18. For this article, we will focus on four verses, 1 Kings 18:36-39.

36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

38 Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!”

If the God-fearing people of this nation will fall on their faces before God Almighty, there is no doubt we will see miracles happen all over this country! Obama’s Administration is planning a prayer vigil on the steps of the Supreme Court House….. where will the God-fearing people of this nation be? Elijah was a true servant of God, and called on Him to show Himself to the false prophets of the day, letting it be known to all that He alone is God.

It would be quite fitting for the servants of God in this day- God-fearing men and women of America, to have our own prayer vigil in front of the Supreme Court at the exact same time as this Administration is performing a sacrilegious ceremonial display of arrogance they call prayer. There is power in prayer!

Matthew 18:20:

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

The Duke’s Prophetic Words- John Wayne on liberals

this is audio of an interview with John Wayne from 1975. He speaks very prophetic words. Though I miss him, in many ways, I’m glad he’s not here to see how true his words ring true today!

“You’re being conned into keynesianism and socialism now…”
