Bill Lockwood: What’s Missing from the Debates?

What’s Missing from the Debates?—The Civil Bible of America –“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves…”

by Bill Lockwood

One of the most discouraging features of American politics is the almost complete lack of recognition that we are a nation designed to be guided by our Founding Charter, the Constitution. A perfect illustration of this emptiness is the recent Trump-Clinton debate earlier this week. Plenty of fireworks, but absolutely not a single reference to the guidepost of our liberty—The Constitution. This absence should be alarming to freedom-minded citizens.

The Civil Bible of America

Thomas J. Norton was a Constitutional scholar, having served as member of the bars of the Supreme Court of the United States, the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the 7th, 8th, and 9th Circuits as well as the Supreme Courts of Illinois, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. In his classic text, The Constitution of the United States, Norton observes:

Our Constitution—Civil Bible of America.” “Menaced by collectivist trends, we must seek revival of our strength in the spiritual foundations which are the bedrock of our republic.  Democracy is the outgrowth of the religious conviction of the sacredness of every human life. On the religious side, its highest embodiment is the Bible; on the political, the Constitution.”

The Constitution is the Civil Bible of Americans. But as the great Thomas Jefferson warned, The People are the only safe depository of power—but only if we educate. “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

Again, President Jefferson advised, “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories. And to render even them safe, their minds must be improved to a certain degree.” By improving our minds, Jefferson meant educating in principles of freedom.

Investment?

Instead of invoking Constitutional principles—or better yet, Principles of Natural Law—for these were the concepts upon which our Republic was constructed—what we heard in the debate from both sides was the supposed beneficial results of proposed government action.

One particularly disturbing trend over the past forty years is for Democratic power-mongers to cover their lawless and unconstitutional designs by the cover-word: “Investment.” Hillary Clinton invoked this upon a number of occasions during the debate. “We need to ‘invest’ …”

With this one word the socialists of the nation continue to cover their flagrant plundering of tax-paying citizens to spend it upon their politically-correct projects, be they green energy, or “improving” nationalized education, or socialized government-sponsored health-care, new HUD rules, or whatever.

What IS “Investment?” The Business Dictionary defines it as “money committed or property acquired for future income.” That is, individuals make expenditures upon capital or goods that this outlay might generate income for themselves in the future. The essential ingredient here, however, is freedom. I may simply place my earnings in a piggy bank under the floor for future use, or I may make outlays in some form of stock, bond, land, etc. I am free to invest or not.

What investment does not include is the strong arm of government forcibly removing profits from my labor to dole out to another. That is not my “investment”—that is THEFT, pure and simple. It only an “investment” for the political leaders who use it to “buy” votes from the under-privileged who can be counted on to support every welfare scheme of which they are beneficiaries.

Such craft as is foisted upon us by both parties is absolutely, without question, unconstitutional. Perhaps this is why we never hear that Charter introduced into debate formats. Let’s get back to the Civil Bible of America.

The First Step in Liquidating a Culture…ERASE its Memory- “…ERASE is a vital new tool to help average Americans understand the imminent dangers now threatening the freedoms we have all taken for granted.

by Tom DeWeese

What happens when the forces of evil gain power and the necessary technology to destroy an entire culture for their own means? That is the story of my new political thriller entitled ERASE.

ERASE is set in today’s America. Every government policy I use in the story already exists in our system. Much of the dialog I have given to my characters was said by real policy makers. Many of the scenes in the book really happened. And many of my characters are based on people you may recognize. In my pages they are forced to clearly express their true intentions. It’s not sugar coated!

As Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute said of ERASE: “The book has all the ingredients of a mystery thriller including murder, mayhem and intrigue, villains, heroes and heroines – but all placed in a framework of today’s reality only slightly exaggerated for impact.”

If you are one of the real heroes out there on the front lines fighting to preserve our freedom then you have faced many of the same evil forces; the same outrageous regulations; the same dire consequences as do my book’s heroes like teacher Brad Jackson; pastor Dave Delray; businessman John Lloyd; and activist Mack Richards. Together they represent the four pillars necessary to preserve our precious Constitution, including: Education, Free Enterprise, Christianity and Political Action.

Like today’s desperate patriots, they are in a race against time to save our precious liberties before it’s too late. To the true heroes in our nation, the folks who attend the council meetings and the school board meetings; those who swallow hard and then speak out against dangerous policies; and who return again and again – I dedicated this book – ERASE. My goal was to give every American the ability to see the whole picture and the hope needed to keep fighting.

The reviews are starting to come in and I am humbled as several of the comments and reviews have compared my book to the likes of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and George Orwell’s 1984.

Here are a few of the reviews and comments I have already received about ERASE:

Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute said: “I think ERASE maybe the most important political novel since 1984, Atlas Shrugged, Brave New World and State of Fear.”

Richard Viguerie’s Conservative Headquarters wrote: “Must Read Book: Tom DeWeese’s ERASE: Like Atlas Shrugged and the Left Behind series Tom DeWeese’s ERASE presents a fictional path through a dystopian future. However, in ERASE every single policy presented in the book, from the use of technology to change our culture; to the use of the public school classrooms to eliminate true knowledge; to the destruction of Christianity in a drive to meld all religions into one powerful tool for government, is all true and happening at this very moment.”

Here’s what other readers have said:

“I am reading Tom DeWeese’s new novel ERASE which has all the flavor of the late Michael Crichton’s State Of Fear and Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.”

“ERASE… in my opinion, is a 21st century version of George Orwell’s 1984.”

“DeWeese ties the Global Agenda into a fictional, fast moving, interesting story that would make anyone understand what is happening to our Country, even if they’d not been paying attention for the past 20 to 30 years. This will be a best seller shortly.”

“Murder, greed, tyranny, Agenda 21, and New World Order, all tied up in a package of deceit … and lying at the front door of the White House. You are going to love this one.”

“It is eye opening, it is necessary, it is suspenseful, it is just well written. The characters are faced with the same fears, the same trying to stop it, the same helplessness that many of us are facing daily as we fight to stop such a dark demon from destroying our real lives.”

“I think the author did an excellent job in tying in all aspects of the world we live in today. Everyone should read it. It is in story form for the benefit of those who can not wrap their minds around the world today. Factfiction I guess you would call it.”

“ERASE gives me hope, that everything wrong will be corrected, that good triumphs over evil.”

“Erase is so incredibly believable; I guess that is because most of the things in it really happened or are happening now in America. It is so good to have it in a novel.”

“You are a terrific writer.  It really flows…”

“It is eye opening, it is necessary, it is suspenseful, it is just well written.”

“I highly recommend the book, both as an excellent suspense novel and maybe one that will open some eyes to a real threat.”

“We finished Erase. WOW!! We really enjoyed it!”

“I finished your book and it really had me thinking, that’s the point right!”

“I am also enjoying your book.”

“Oh it’s good.”

“Exciting read! Each chapter makes you look forward to the next. Relevant to today’s America.”

“I didn’t want to finish it because I didn’t want it to end!”

My book ERASE is a vital new tool to help average Americans understand the imminent dangers now threatening the freedoms we have all taken for granted. Through a fictionalized story ERASE shows everyone the root of those dangers and lets them clearly see what will happen to our society if we don’t take action to preserve our American culture against those who seek to destroy it. As Harold, the ERASE Graffiti Bandit said, ““Check Your Premise… all is not as it seems!”

Socialism is a Denial of the Reality of Human Nature

Socialism is a Denial of the Reality of Human Nature –“Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps”  -Karl Marx

by Bill Lockwood

Socialism is an anti-God philosophy which is born and incubated in the atheistic laboratory. How is this the case? The philosophy of socialism is a sub-category of the world-view of Materialism. At the heart of the system is the basic premise that the behavior of man is shaped solely by the economic system. All factors determining human action have a materialistic base, per Socialism.

Vergilius Ferm, in his Encyclopedia of Religion, explains this gross error of socialism. “American socialism is heir to the tradition of materialism and atheism. It relies on the growth of automatic perfection, not indeed by virtue of the given natural faculties of man, but as the product of causally inevitable economic changes. The result is parallel to that of the liberal utopia, a self-contained world of man, individualistic here, collectivist there, and redeemed from evil, once and for all, by the economic process, much as this requires men conscious of their opportunity. This is an overtly anti-Christian doctrine.”

Again, Oscar Jaszi, the famed Hungarian social scientist and politician, noted that socialists insist that the “immorality of the established order is traceable NOT to the …nature of man, but to ‘corrupt institutions.’”  Therefore, socialism always seeks to transform the institutions of society because they are somehow “unjust.”

Socialistic Societies Unravel

Consider the fact that, in order to improve human behavior, God has “built into the system” negative repercussions for poor choices, just as in the natural sphere. If I jumped off a two-story building, I am going to suffer. People do not voluntarily behave that way unless they are mentally disabled. Negative consequences curtail my behavior.

So also in the economic field. My failure to labor results in hunger. That pain eventually drives me to be productive. This might be called God’s Corrective Mechanism. It is natural. “If a man does not work [refusing in the context] neither let him eat.” In the end, improvement of society as a whole is accomplished by improving behavior at a personal level.

FAILURE is a teacher in all realms of life. It forms a corrective that impels me to make adjustments in my performance in sports, in my production at work or at school. If I refuse to study in school, my lack should result in the same outcome: failure. That is the built-in pain producer that causes me to improve.

Socialism, on the other hand, takes this corrective mechanism (failure, pain, etc.) and artificially transfers this to others by force of government, be it school or in the civic arena. The polarities are reversed and misguided people who make poor choices are robbed of this corrective mechanism. No one is impelled to correct or adjust their behavior. Instead the “pain” of poor choices is placed upon the working class which is financing failure. Government fiat is responsible for this while poor choices continue to mushroom.

The Working Middle Class today is paying for (carrying the load of punishment) for HEALTH CARE for others. I am being forced by government to pony up for my neighbor’s health care. All natural incentives to live a healthier life (high costs of Health Care) has been removed from my neighbor’s back and saddled on mine. Very little incentive remains to avoid a dissipated life of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, etc. The pain has actually become mine and makes me less inclined to be productive.

I am being forced by government to pay for the HOUSING of low-income individuals. All incentives for those persons to stay in school, get a good job, and persevere are effectually removed. The burden and natural incentive to improve behavior has been artificially moved to me. But I don’t need those incentives, I am already working three jobs. Their lives continue to be impoverished because they have little incentive outside of personal pride to improve.

For that matter I am paying for the EDUCATION of other families’ children. I may have already sent my children through the educational system, but now I am paying for my neighbor’s children to receive an education. Thereby, the incentive for my neighbor not to have as many children is removed. This is exactly why middle class families are having less children and lower classes produce more. Society is thereby unraveling, but guaranteeing votes for the Democratic Party.

FOOD STAMP distribution has reached an all-time high. No accident under President Obama. These are doled out regardless of whether or not a person works or even cares to. This disgrace has reached such astronomical proportions that all the amenities of a comfortable life are now enjoyed by those in poverty: cell phones, televisions, and automobiles.

“My Baby-Daddy”

If one supposes this to be mere philosophizing about nonrealistic possibilities, I invite them to visit their local school. Single teenage girls are producing children at an alarming rate. They even talk about it as if one was visiting a breeding farm for animals—“My ‘baby-daddy’.” No fathers—just “baby-daddies.” Our culture is exploding with fatherless children and the teenage mothers have little idea that it actually COSTS something—quite a bit of something—to birth a child. Why are they so ignorant? Once again, our government has FORCED the middle-class worker to absorb the costs, those prohibitive repercussions.

None of this is to say that one’s duty is not to assist the poor. But that remains, as it should always have been, under private practice or church contribution, never government. We now have a huge under-belly in society that work little, live licentiously, produce babies, and continually make poor choices in life. Natural negative consequences that would impel them to make better life choices have been shifted by government to the middle-class.  Soon enough, it too will vanish in this false Utopia that refuses to recognize the realities of human nature.

Blood for Blood

Blood for Blood- “…he had come to this country expecting to see the emergence of a prophet whose time was at hand.

by Bill Lockwood

somalimallSaturday night a Somali Islamic terrorist knifed shoppers in a Sears store in the Crossroads Center mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota before he was gunned down by an out-of-uniform police officer. Earlier the same day the Islamic man we now know as Ahmad Khan Rahami allegedly set off bombs in New York and New Jersey, injuring many. He has since been arrested. Islamic terrorism is advancing in America.

Law enforcement, however, is absolutely hamstrung to solve the rising tide of violence by Islamic terrorists in our nation. The lack begins with the initial question that reporters and politicians love to ask: “How were these men radicalized?” This is to begin the entire conversation with the ASSUMPTION that Islam is a “peaceful religion” and that somehow these Muslim terrorist have strayed from real Islam.

Muhammad, the founder of Islam, is the perfect example for those calling themselves Muslims. Yet, Muhammad’s authoritative biographer, Ibn Ishaq, made perfectly clear that conversion to Islam had little to do with religion and everything to do with violence and jihad.

For example, even in his early years in Mecca, before his hijra to Medina and the opening of warfare against all in order to force “conversion” Ishaq tells of a supposed “prophecy” given by a Jew from Syria (Ishaq, 136). The Jew had emigrated from Syria to the “land of hardship and hunger” (Arabia). When his Jewish fellows asked why he had come so far, he responded that, “…he had come to this country expecting to see the emergence of a prophet whose time was at hand. This was the town where he would migrate and he was hoping he would be sent so that he could follow him. ‘His time has come,’ he said, ‘and don’t let anyone get to him before you, O Jews; [Jewish man admonishing fellow Jews] for he will be sent to shed blood and to take captive the women and children of those who oppose him. Let not that keep you back from him.” In other words, he warned them to convert to Islam or pay with their blood.

Later, as Muhammad’s power began to accumulate, just before migrating to Medina from Mecca, he was visited by Muslims coming from Medina to Mecca to observe a “fair.” One night about seventy of the Muslims went to meet Muhammad. He recited the Koran to them and “invited” their allegiance to Islam on the “basis that you protect me as you would your own children.” The Medinans gave their word.

One of the Medinans, however, asked what about their now-severed ties with the Jews in Medina? If they assisted Muhammad with arms would he go back to Mecca? Muhammad replied, “No, blood is blood, and blood not to be paid for is blood not to be paid for” (Ishaq, 297).

Biographer Ishaq explains, “He would treat blood revenge and its obligation as common to both parties.” Islam’s invitation to “convert” is blood for blood. What is happening in America is the revealing of the real Islam. What radicalizes the behavior of Muslims is the so-called Prophet himself.

Bill Lockwood: Obama’s War Against Freedom of Speech

Internet Giveaway: Obama’s War Against Freedom of Speech-“Hate,” like beauty, is the eye of the beholder. “

by Bill Lockwood

The danger is real. The threat is imminent. Under Barack Obama’s direction the United States is set to give up control of the internet to a world body controlled by other socialists such as himself. Obama’s Marxism is not the armchair sort where he simply cogitates about philosophies of life while puffing on a pipe. “Street-organizing” is called such for a reason.

As these lines are being composed Barack Obama, as has become his modus operandi, via the back door, is seeking to curtail freedom of speech. His proposal is to end the U.S. government’s oversight of the internet domain name system by turning it over to a world body called ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) composed of 162 nations. These nations, composed of dictatorships of the communist or Islamic brands, such as China or Iran, will certainly curtail the precious freedoms long-cherished by Americans.

The Left argues that this “danger” outlined above is overblown. No entity would ever “censor” the internet, we are assured by the globalists. As Senator Ted Cruz observed on the floor of Congress recently, “A representative of Iran is already on record stating, ‘we should not take it [for] granted that jurisdiction is already agreed to be totally based on U.S. law.’” Unbelievable. More unbelievable is the fact that this does not cause Barack Obama to even pause in his internet giveaway. He pushes it onto the fast track.

Further, as Cruz pointed out to the Senate, leading technology companies in the United States have already agreed with the European Union to remove ‘hate speech’ from their online platforms. Giant U.S. companies  are currently in the process of “censoring speech” that is deemed unacceptable. “Hate,” like beauty, is the eye of the beholder. Those who have Twitter or Facebook accounts know that this is already occurring.

Freedom of Speech

America has had a long history of cherishing the precious freedom of speech, the free flow and exchange of ideas. Our framers of government fought long and hard that they and we might enjoy this God-given freedom, which had been stifled throughout the governments of history.

Probably the most significant figure of the Founding period in America is Thomas Jefferson. As were all of those remarkable statesmen called Founding Fathers, Jefferson was a fierce lover of freedom. At his First Inaugural Address (1801) the Sage of Monticello admonished future generations, in memorable phraseology, to carefully guard the Freedom of Speech.

The diffusion of information and arraignment of all abuses at the bar of the public reason; freedom of religion; freedom of the press, and freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus, and trial by juries impartially selected. These principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation.”

The wisdom of our sages and blood of our heroes have been devoted to their attainment. They should be the creed of our political faith, the text of civic instruction, the touchstone by which to try the services of those we trust; and should we wander from them in moments of error or of alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety.”

Elsewhere Jefferson rightly connected the freedom of speech with religion. “…Insomuch that whatever violates either throws down the sanctuary which covers the others” (Kentucky Resolutions, 1798).

Benjamin Franklin warned: “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.”

Is it the case that this ‘principal pillar of free government’ is near evaporation? Will tyranny indeed be erected on its ruins? Marxist Obama does not cherish this freedom; the liberal establishment does not desire a free flow of ideas. Placing the forum of the internet into globalist hands assures us that tyranny is in the offing.

Bill Lockwood: The Earth is the Lord’s

The Earth is the Lord’s & the Fullness Thereof- “Landmarks were regarded as sacred among other nations besides Israel. Romans, for example, enacted the death penalty against those who removed them. “

by Bill Lockwood

Tucked away in an unexpected passage dealing with “meat sacrificed to idols” the inspired apostle Paul underscored the fact that the earth was created by God, and for man. The natural conclusions that flow from his short statement are as profound as they are apropos to the current cultural scene in America.

First, the Context. At issue in 1 Corinthians 10:23ff is whether or not a Christian living in Corinth may purchase meat from an open-air marketplace, called in the first-century a “Makellon,” and consume it—with the possibility that that meat may have been butchered by a pagan priest and offered to an idol. Answering that question in the affirmative, the apostle of God then gives the reason for it: “for the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”

This quotation Paul takes from Psalm 24:1 and means simply that all the food and provision with which the earth has been filled has been filled by God for man’s usage. “The fruit and products of the earth were designed by God, the Great Proprietor, to the use and subsistence of mankind …” (Matthew Henry, 2263).

Second, the Context of the Creation. In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth God specifically stated that mankind, who was created “in His image” (Gen. 1:26) was to “have dominion over” the earth and its products and to “subdue” it (Gen. 1:28). These phrases speak clearly of God’s intention for the created earth and the environment—that mankind is to manage it. “The dominion of man, the God-like king, only begins with his natural realm, …extended by cultural conquest over all the creation kingdoms …The subordination of both animal and plant kingdoms to man’s royal service …” (Eerdman’s Bible Commentary, 83).

It is from this premise of dominion that the concept of Private Property flows. Biblical truth assumes that since man “has dominion over” the earth, men have also the right to own property. “Thou shalt not steal” is built on this framework. So also is the familiar Old Testament law forbidding one from “removing his neighbor’s landmark” (Deut. 19:14).

Landmarks, or boundary markers in the OT, designated one’s private property and were considered “sacred.” To “move” the markers was to “steal” property. Thus, a curse was placed upon those who “removed them” just the same as a curse was pronounced upon one who cursed his father or perverted the rights of orphans and widows (Hos. 5:10; Prov. 22:28; 23:10). Landmarks were regarded as sacred among other nations besides Israel. Romans, for example, enacted the death penalty against those who removed them. Private property rights rest on man’s dominion.

Third, the Context of America. Ancient paganism and its modern Green version, represented by many in the environmental movement, disavow that the earth was created by the One God for man’s usage. Therefore, instead of “subduing” the earth pagans “worship” it. Imagining that the world is a personification of a goddess ancient pagans consider the earth “sacred” and celebrated its seasonal cycles with religious observances. The modern counterpart of ancient paganism is represented in part by The Millenium Institute which presses for “Sustainable Development.” This doctrine demands that mankind submits to global management in which the products of the earth are rationed.

Man is denounced as the problem with this new philosophy. One prominent globalist told Gerald Barney, the author of Global 2000 for the Jimmy Carter Administration, that “Christianity is the menace of the earth.” The Clinton Administration championed Al Gore who began his crusade for a New Earth Ethic with publication of Earth in the Balance in which he sought to re-write the Bible’s account of Genesis. Not only man, but all of nature was created “in God’s image” was the manner in which he argued with Moses.

From the Pagan Federation International website we are informed that earth must be “venerated.” The very first paganistic principle echoed there is that we all have a “love and kinship with nature” which is defined as “reverence for the life force and its ever-renewing cycles of life and death.” The earth itself therefore is “sacred” and the natural year is marked by festivals “which offer access to different divinities according to their affinity with different times of the year.” This “new earth ethic” in which man is described as the plague, is actually thousands of years old. It is rooted in ancient paganism.

Bill Lockwood: Waterboy Kaepernick & the Dismantling America

Waterboy Kaepernick & the Dismantling America- “To hear Kaepernick talk America is witnessing wholesale slaughter on the streets by the police.”

by Bill Lockwood

It is frightening that America chooses cultural heroes such as NFL football players who in turn show their disdain for our nation. By refusing the national anthem, San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is a living example of what occurs when all emphasis is upon physical prowess in a sports arena. A quarterback in uniform, but a waterboy at heart.

Not only is Kaepernick exhibiting his lack of mental agility by refusing gratitude toward the country which enables him to play professional sports, but is goose-stepping with anti-American unpatriotic radicals. Strong enough to play professional sports but too weak to think for himself.

I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick explained. “To me, it’s bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street, and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

For starters, just which black person has been “murdered” by the “establishment?” None of the cases which Black Lives Matter (BLM) have exploited have been shown to be murder in courts of law. Treyvon Martin; Michael Brown; Freddie Gray; and the cases go on. Each of these were young black thugs who were out of control, violating the law. Further, these were the men oppressing others, not being oppressed. Such are icons to BLM and to Kaepernick.

If there are other persons of color who have been “murdered” by the police, just who are they? Any individual that one might possibly think of is a case that has already or is now being adjudicated by the powers-that-be. To hear Kaepernick talk America is witnessing wholesale slaughter on the streets by the police.

Does it mean nothing to Kaepernick that Black Lives Matter, which is controlling him like a coach calling the plays, has been sponsored and funded by Communists who are bent on destroying our nation? Workers from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO); the Communist Party USA (CPUSA); and the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) are the chief drivers of this movement.

Their stated goal is not to properly adjudicate any alleged misconduct by law enforcement, for this they could not care less, but to overturn the entire system of limited government. So state their own websites. Blacks and other minorities are simply the tools by which they wish to accomplish this goal, Kaepernick being one of them. The 49’ers quarterback is simply reading their afore-prepared script.

BLM itself is a hereditary descendent of Communism and the New Communist Movement which has multiple fronts in America. All work for one goal. Overthrow the establishment. They even have Kaepernick wearing socks which depict the police as PIGS. Looks like another Abbie Hoffman. Perhaps Kaepernick should call his own plays instead of having them funneled to him by radicals.

What is the end goal (maybe Kaepernick will understand this if we put up goal posts here) of this entire anti-police movement? The fact that he, nor any of his other football buddies who now have joined him, has mentioned ONE single solitary case which needs to be addressed, shows clearly that it is nothing less than the dismantling of America and and restructuring local police departments that they are after. What is the solution? A Nationalized Police Department? Apparently so. They are merely waterboys carrying for communists.

The poisonous counter-culture revolution and social “reconstruction” of the 1960’s hippie movement has simply moved into mainstream America under President Obama. Regrettably, it is now on the football field as well.

Patsvs.Politicians

Patriots vs. Politicians – “Where are the heroes for today’s young people to admire?”

by Tom DeWeese

Many of the younger generation must be truly bewildered over the emotions older Americans display when expressing love, devotion, respect and reverence for our country. A tear in the eye for a patriotic song… a hand over the heart as the national anthem plays… a salute to the flag as it passes in a parade. Why would we older folks do that?

What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism – even American citizenship are taboo in today’s school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science. Communism is just another economic system. The Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys. The UN’s Declaration on Human Rights trumps the Declaration of Independence.

Where are the heroes for today’s young people to admire? Principled leaders who understood the roots of America’s greatness now are replaced by blow-dried sound-byte kings whose professional campaign staffs understand only how to maneuver a special interest group or a voting block. How can young people make decisions in the voting booth? Who can they choose? Are there any candidates who offer anything other than meaningless gibberish?

If today’s young people could learn some of the history that brings the older generation a sense of pride then they could be helped to understand that ordinary people in history knew that there were life principles worth sacrificing or even dying for. Perhaps they could help demand a better future for themselves.

Read 
Tom DeWeese’s book, “Erase: A Political Thriller”

Here are three little known examples from three separate eras of our nation’s history which demonstrate how Americans once thought. They are examples of how we as a nation once stood proud, ready to defend ideals to the death if necessary. And these examples clearly show why the rest of the world understood that such unwavering devotion to those ideals meant our word was true. Our steadfast principles of freedom clearly showed the rest of the world that America offered the human race something different, something wonderful. Our unmatched freedoms meant that Americans were more secure, more prosperous and happier than any people in history.

Perhaps, through the following  examples, today’s young Americans will understand that the tear in an eye or the hand over a heart expressed by the older generation wasn’t for a flag or a song. That show of emotion is really for the brave actions taken by the men and women which resulted in making the flags and the songs symbols of freedom.

Six Issues That Are Agenda 21 – “These seemingly unrelated policies, once implemented, help enforce the stated Agenda 21 goal of “reorganizing human society.”

by Tom DeWeese

Every day, in meetings at all levels of government, representatives of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), planning groups, and federal agents surround elected representatives and insist that their policies have nothing to do with international agendas. They regularly publish reports and rail against anyone even mentioning the names Agenda 21 or the new Agenda 2030. “No, no, no,” they insist. “Those people are just crazy conspiracy theorists. Ours is just a local plan for our community.”

Elected Representatives are often confused. Issues and policies suddenly appear in front of them with sample, ready-made legislation. And then the unending pressure begins for them to pass it. There is confusion, uncertainty and there is the herd mentality to pass legislation. And it’s passed without knowledge of its origins, its purpose, and especially a lack of understanding of its consequences. “Just do it,” goes the mantra.

What most of these legislators fail to understand is the direct relationship much of this legislation has with a much larger agenda. Most legislation interconnects with other pieces and parts contained in other legislation. Like the children’s song goes…”the toe bone’s connected to the ankle bone…”  And it’s done so well, wrapped in innocent-sounding, positive wrapping, so that most elected representatives will argue vigorously that they passed no such thing.  And most of all, they will answer, Agenda 21, never heard of it. Just local. Just local. Just local.

Well, let me show you how it works and how the toe bone gets connected to the ankle bone ending up with the Frankenstein monster.  Here are six issues that are rarely connected to Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development (especially when we are assured that Agenda 21 has nothing to do with local, state or federal government policy). However, these seemingly unrelated policies, once implemented, help enforce the stated Agenda 21 goal of “reorganizing human society.”

Issue 1: Global Warming/Climate Change. It has been so discredited in the true scientific community that proponents have become almost hysterical in their continued attempts to enforce Climate Change policy. Most recently the Justice Department is considering legal action against “deniers.”  Why don’t they stop, even to question if their science is sound? They instead use great energy to attack any scientist who does dare ask questions or finds data contrary to the “official” line. Why is it so vitally important that they continue to promote something that clearly is, to say the least, questionable?

It’s because all of Agenda 21 policy is built on the premise that man is destroying the Earth. Climate Change is their “proof.” To eliminate that premise is to remove all credibility and purpose for their entire agenda. They are willing to go to any length, even lies, to keep the climate change foot on our throats. On the local level this translates into planning policy that controls energy use and the efforts to cut down on the use of cars, enforcement of the building of expensive light rail train systems and bike paths and installation of smart meters, etc. But don’t take my word for it. I’ll let them speak for themselves:

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” Christine Stewart (Former Canadian Minister of the Environment)

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” Timothy Wirth (President, UN Foundation)

“It doesn’t matter what is true. It only matters what people believe is true.” Paul Watson (Co-Founder of Green Peace.)
