Shocked by Scandals? Welcome to the New Amerika

Shocked by Scandals? Welcome to the NEW AMERIKA! “Samuel Adams Warned that “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.

by Bill Lockwood

Sexual misconduct is rampant. National degeneracy and indecency have become so widespread that Congressional lawmakers now have a secret mysterious slush fund financed by the American taxpayers to help pay their legal bills and settle accusations against them. Unbelievable.

In the wake of increasing revelations of Congressional misconduct and disregard for decent standards of morality, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) has sponsored a resolution that requires all House members, officers, employees, including interns, detailees, and fellows, to complete “anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training during each session of Congress.” She is also exploring the prevention of further use of taxpayer money to assist offending members of Congress, such as Democrat John Conyers, who is reportedly raided that fund four times.

Let’s back up. The exponential increase of sexual misconduct is the result of three things.

First, the continual concentrated assault against Christian morals throughout our culture. The underpinnings of our society have been unapologetically Christian. In his Farewell Address, George Washington reminded the nation of the following:

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens….And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education … reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

By “religion” Washington meant the “Christian religion.” Rising up like a prophet the father of our country warned us that not only are Christian principles the “pillars of human happiness” but without these principles there is no patriotism. The entire founding generation reverberated with the same admonitions.

Samuel Adams Warned that “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.” James Madison observed that if there be no virtue among us “we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.”

The entertainment industry has made it a staple fare to mock Christianity, while Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and even paganism of the Indian culture receives favorable treatment. Public schoolhouses openly teach Marxist principles which are grounded in atheism, while Bible reading, Christian prayer-offering and the teaching of biblical morality has been purposefully excised from all curriculums. The past several generations which has been reared on godless humanistic principles is having a telling effect.

Second, the deliberate removal of Constitutional restraints on federal spending. Today, at least two-thirds or more of all government spending might be classified as “benevolent expenditures.” From HUD housing grants, NEA education, welfare, block grants to states, incentives to green energy, farm subsidies, business subsidies, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, National Endowment of the arts, ad nauseam—the only limit to Congressional spending is the lack of new imaginative programs to be conceived by Congressmen and Senators.

The fact is all such spending is strictly unconstitutional. The only legitimate use of public funds is that public monies must benefit the entire population. The Constitution empowers Congress (Art. 1, Sec. 8) to expend monies only to the extent that it benefits the entire nation. Alexander Hamilton explains,

The welfare of the community [of states] is the only legitimate end for which money can be raised from the community. Congress can be considered only under one restriction, which does not apply to other governments. They cannot rightfully apply the money they raise to any purpose merely or purely local … The constitutional test of a right application must always be, whether it be for a purpose general or local in nature.

It is unlawful and illegal to remove money from one segment of the population to redistribute it to another. This common-sense approach to Congressional spending has been hated by the liberal left since the inception of our Charter—The Constitution. Finally, in 1936, during the Roosevelt Administration, “general welfare” was twisted to teach “special welfare” and America has not been the same since. Nor do mild tax relief bills such as are now before Congress hope to reform us—because Congress continues to flagrantly violate the spirit and letter of the Constitution by out-of-control spending.

Once that socialistic racket started, there is no way to stop the runaway train but by a total financial collapse. Money is so freely earmarked by Congress for pork projects and special interest spending that the ability to divert public funds for private use becomes part of the program.

Third, the decided gravitational shift toward a more centralized statist government. The same forces that began pushing for taxpayer subsidized welfare spending have been drawing all power to Washington, D.C. for over a century. Termed “the swamp” by President Trump, the locus of power is settled in the nation’s capital.

Every minute of private life is decided by masters in Congress, from housing codes, land use, school curriculum, health care decisions, workplace salary, workplace hours, hiring standards in mom-and-pop shops, banking standards, building procedures, regulating down even to how much water one has in his or her toilet. Everything is legislated by federal regulators. This does not even smell like freedom.

Every goal of a bottom-up government envisioned by the Framers has been turned upside down. We now suffer from top-down power control. Practically speaking, this means that representatives at the federal level are almost completely out of reach by those who hired them and those for whom they supposedly work—the taxpaying citizen.

Having shown some of the causes of the current immoral morass in which we find ourselves, here are some suggestions addressed to the immediate problem at hand. (1) Forget mandatory “sensitivity and sexual harassment training” for Congress and staffers. Laudable as is Rep. Comstock’s efforts, they are not enough. Cancer is not cured by such light measures. Besides, these public servants do not need sexual harassment “training.” They already know it is wrong. Matt Lauer is already out there apologizing for his misconduct. These guys already recognize what is right and wrong—they simply lack the moral fortitude to act in harmony with principle.

(2) Impose mandatory expulsion hearings. Such is provided for in our Constitution in Article 1, Section 5. Follow it. Adam Clayton Powell was expelled from Congress in 1985 for fraud and forgery—Congress needs grow a backbone and begin expulsion hearings on Conyers and Franken and others. Quit asking them to step down. Get them out.

(3) Prevention of further use of taxpayer money for nefarious purposes is commendable—we appreciate Congresswoman Comstock’s goal here—but how about demanding these lecherous Congressmen pay it back? It is our money. If they refuse—jail time. Let these measures be the sensitivity and sexual harassment training. Stop playing games.

Jesse Lee Peterson: CHILLING PEEK INSIDE JOHN MCCAIN’S WICKED HEART

Chilling Peek Inside John McCain’s Wicked Heart- Jesse Lee Peterson exposes senator who ‘fooled public, pretended to be Republican’

by Jesse Lee Peterson

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9

Sen. John McCain is at it again!

Sen. McCain recently wrote a scathing column for the Washington Post attacking President Donald Trump as “poorly informed” and “impulsive.” McCain stated, “We are not his subordinates. … we don’t answer to him.”

The Arizona senator also called for compromise on a litany of important items, including on Trump’s campaign promise to build a “big, beautiful wall.” McCain wrote that “a literal wall might not be the most effective means” to secure the border. Instead, he wants a “comprehensive” bill Democrats can get behind.

John McCain is losing it! Or, perhaps this is the real McCain finally coming out. During his 30 years in the Senate, McCain has fooled the public and pretended to be a conservative Republican. The fake news media have depicted him as a “maverick” who isn’t afraid to stand up to his own party. But McCain has always been a RINO, and he is not an honorable man. The election of President Trump is exposing his true nature and lack of character.

McCain, 81, is a Navy veteran who spent five-and-a-half years as a prisoner of war in the Vietnam War, and he has never gotten over Donald Trump mocking him as “not a war hero” during the 2016 campaign. He needs to get over his anger before he passes from this earth.

What do YOU think? What is your opinion of Sen. John McCain? Sound off in the WND Poll!

With the encouragement of President Trump, millions of Americans wished McCain well and prayed for his recovery after he was diagnosed with brain cancer in late July, only to be betrayed by him when he joined with liberal Republicans to defeat the GOP’s “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. McCain’s vote against the bill delivered a major setback for Republicans. The vote also robbed Trump of his first major legislative victory.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he had been in constant contact with McCain leading up to the betrayal vote.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood

McCain has also attacked Trump over the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. He condemned the president for his statement, even though Trump’s initial statement disavowing hate and violence “on many sides” was spot on. That didn’t stop McCain.

He tweeted: “There’s no moral equivalency between racists and Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry. The president of the United States should say so.”

According to McCain, the true Americans are Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the people who started and escalated the violence.

McCain also had the audacity to attack Trump for pardoning legendary Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio – who is beloved by the people of Arizona. Everyone knows the investigation into Sheriff Joe was a political witch hunt by Obama cronies in the Department of Justice. They wanted to make an example of the sheriff for supporting Trump and for enforcing immigration laws. McCain knows this, but his judgment is clouded by his anger toward Trump.

McCain is the consummate compromiser. According to the Arizona Republic, McCain reportedly spoke to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer about joining forces again to pass the “Gang of Eight” bill – an awful, far-reaching 2013 bill that offered amnesty and citizenship to illegal aliens.

McCain was nowhere to be found while conservatives organized under the tea-party banner to fight Barack Obama’s out-of-control spending and attack on the Constitution. McCain referred to tea-party supporters as “hobbits”!

With his unrelenting attack against Trump, McCain is revealing himself, and he doesn’t even realize it.

We have a great president who is working hard to make “America Great Again,” and this cowardly RINO is fighting against him and against the good people in this country. Arizonans, I blame you, because you had a chance to get rid of this man, but you voted for him over and over again.

I recall when John McCain spoke in Southern California in 2008 during his presidential run against Obama. I thought he was a good guy. I voted for him because he presented himself as a conservative who loved his country and the military – I didn’t know he was a RINO!

McCain is not the only RINO being exposed. Many others have been unmasked.

Despite his boyish smile and talk of “conservatism,” I don’t trust House Speaker Paul Ryan. He is too quick to condemn the president – like he did with his recent remarks slamming Trump over his Charlottesville statement. Ryan appeared at a CNN forum and said Trump’s initial statement was “wrong,” and, “It was not only morally ambiguous, it was equivocating.”

And Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said, “[The] president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.”

We the people must be aware and remain vigilant so, when we vote in 2018 and beyond, we elect real conservatives. We need to stand back and pay attention to what’s going on so we are not deceived. The betrayal by John McCain and other RINOs is an opportunity to wake up and change so we don’t repeat the same mistakes.

THE NOT SO COLD WAR OF URBAN RENEWAL AND SOCIAL ENGINEERING

The Not So Cold War of Urban Renewal and Social Engineering – “Our government has been corrupted for many decades… ”

by Kathleen Marquardt

Tom DeWeese, founder and president to the American Policy Center, has been telling you all the latest with AFFH, HUD, DOT, and the rest of the swamp. That is, the recent part of the swamp that is our federal government. But the swamp is far deeper, far murkier, and far more sinister in its aims than most people are willing to believe. And it is being promoted by the Pope, Mark Zuckerberg, the UN, and the world’s elite.

I am trying to keep this somewhat short, but there is so much background that needs to be exposed to the light of day. If you can’t read it all, scan it; things will pop out and you will be surprised at the evil in our swamp. I was always told that before air conditioning, foreign governments paid their US embassy staff hazardous duty pay above their regular salaries for working in DC because it was built on a swamp. Now I wonder if there was a second reason, a second swamp to be negotiated.

Communitarians suggest a series of measures that would significantly enhance public safety and public health, without endangering basic individual rights and constitutional protections. Often these modifications entail no mare than limited reinterpretations of legal traditions – for instance, of what constitutes reasonable search and seizure, which, of course, the Constitution allows. Such reinterpretations have been taking place continuously over the past two hundred years.

There are those who openly admit that the courts, especially the US Supreme Court, treat the Constitution as a living document that may be modified to respond to the changing times and changes in our moral values. Others argue that the Constitution is to be treated as a sacred text that is unalterable. The latter group of legal scholars does its adjusting of the Constitution by interpreting what they see as the Founding Fathers’ intent. In either case, we are not irrevocably bound by what was written two hundred years ago. Amitai Etzioni, The Spirit of Community – the Reinvention of American Society.

Our changing moral values” and “we are not irrevocably bound by what was written two hundred years ago.” Unless one believes in moral relativity, morality is not readily mutable. But in order to move from individual rights and freedom to socialism/communitarianism, communism and, as Mary Parker Follett says, the ‘state (UN) ‘. . .must be a coordinating agency. It must appear as the great moral leader. Its supreme function is moral ordering,” and individuals be damned.

Urban Renewal

Jo Hindman wrote the following in1966; the only difference today is that there is no international cold war.
Much is written about the international cold war, but little about the incognito warfare on United States soil which public officials and their accomplices are waging to wrest private property from landowners.
The strategy is to make property ownership so unbearable by harassment through building inspections, remodeling orders, fines and jailings, that owners give up in despair and sell to land developers at cut-rate prices. Punitive municipal codes are the weapons in the warfare.

Hindman also wrote, “Planning assistance subsidized by Federal money leads small cities and counties into direct obedience under a regional master plan. Land use rights are literally stolen from landowners when zoning is applied to land.”

Now you might think, so what, there is no cold war and Trump says he is going to rid our country of anything that is evil. Hold on to your hats and your tongues. I want to show you some things from our not too distant history. Our government has been corrupted for many decades; we are not going to get rid of the rot and poison with 500 executive orders. This was written 32 years before the Rio Accord gave us Agenda 21. It is from the Constitution of the American Institute of Planners, the forerunner of the American Planning Association.

The 60s’ American Institute of Planners makes no bones about its socialist stance regarding land; its constitution states AIP’s ‘particular sphere of activity shall be the planning of the unified development of urban communities and their environs and of states, regions, and the nation as expressed through determination of the comprehensive arrangement of land uses and land occupancy and the regulation thereof.’  (AIP {forerunner of APA} Constitution, 1960) The next step – Amatai Etzioni is not hiding what is going on. To make our physical environment more community-friendly, our homes, places of work, streets, and public spaces – whole developments, suburbs, and even whole cities – need to be designed to enhance the Communitarian nexus. Etzioni, p.127

Is that spelled out clear enough? The next texts are from The Ideal Communist City by Alexei Gutnov, et al, published in 1968. It’s a lot, but it is also spelled out clearly with no ambiguity as to how much planning is being done of every aspect of life.

This book was initiated by the architecture-faculty of the University of Moscow in the late fifties. For the Italian edition in 1968 the material was enlarged and revised by the authors, a group of young urbanists, architects, and sociologists, who represent a renewal of ideas and men that is taking place in Soviet Russia, especially in fields concerned with the organization of the physical environment.

Their work is particularly original in its general assumptions, method of inquiry, and choice of models. The authors turn away from the proposition that the city should attempt to restore the habits and appearance of the countryside. This proposition adapted from the bourgeois naturalism of the nineteenth century, contradicted the ideological foundations of communism. Read More

John Anthony: This Happens if Trump Fails to Rein in HUD

This Happens if Trump Fails to Rein in HUD –Rather than address the community’s worries about crime, attorneys and HUD dismissed that issue as racist.”

by John Anthony

If you want to know what will happen to your hometown if Trump allows the Department of Housing and Urban Development to continue its devastating control of local rule, look at Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is the latest community to surrender to HUD’s aggressive tactics.

Much of the chaos we see in America today is designed to stop President Trump from dismantling the federal system of rampant waste, dishonesty, and bullying. The largest “swamp” he must drain, is the embedded federal bureaucracy.

In theory, at least, we can “fire” politicians every two, four, and six years. But federal agency employees can linger for decades, beneath the radar, issuing guidance documents on little understood regulations that are now devastating our communities and property rights.


That is why the administration must work closely with Congress to pass the House and Senate bills, titled, the “Local Zoning Decisions Protection Act of 2017”. Once signed by the President, the new law will outlaw HUD’s worst offenders, its “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” (AFFH) regulation.

 AFFH uses legal actions against communities that accept popular HUD grants, to force them into a bizarre, centrally managed program of regionalism and forced socio-economic integration.

AFFH use of litigation threats is becoming a widespread enforcement tool for the agency.

 Whitehall Township is the most recent victim of HUD’s new legal intimidation. The community, located in the heart of the Lehigh Valley, 90 miles north of Philadelphia, has its own home rule charter. They have their own Mayor, Township Commissioners, and Planning Commission.

 That autonomy and the voice of their voters, means little to HUD.

In February 2014, PathStone, a regional affordable housing developer from the Philadelphia area, proposed purchasing a parcel of land in the Township and constructing 52 (later reduced to 49) affordable housing units in the Loft Project. By May, the Planning Commission rejected the proposal.

 Rather than accept the Commission’s decision and find another location to build, in April 2015, PathStone hired a civil rights law firm who filed a complaint with HUD requesting they investigate Whitehall for a, 

“discriminatory zoning ordinance that discourages the development of affordable, multifamily housing in high opportunity areas.”

The suit claimed, 

“The Zoning Hearing Board denied zoning relief…on the basis of the race, color, national origin, familial status, and disability status of the prospective residents of the housing.”

 HUD was involved because the Township had received $395,000 in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) since 2009.

But, how were the attorneys and HUD able to interpret the board’s decision as discriminatory?

 The Planning Commission argued that PathStone’s proposal only allowed for one parking space per unit, in violation of zoning laws that called for two. In addition, citizens raised concerns over reduced property values and increased crime.

 PathStone’s attorneys countered that the Commission had previously approved similar zoning relief for the same parcel for a senior citizen’s home. Therefore, they reasoned, any rejection for affordable housing is clearly the result of discrimination.

Their rationale was limited to selective portions of the voters’ issues. Rather than address the community’s worries about crime, attorneys and HUD dismissed that issue as racist. 

But safety and racism are different topics and the citizens’ fears were legitimate. While senior citizen housing rarely raises crime rates, a detailed block-by-block study shows that high density, low-income housing does attract larger numbers of homicides, no matter who lives there.

This should be a real concern for any community.

 Whitehall’s citizens were outraged at PathStone’s and HUD’s heavy-handed tactics and continued to voice their objections to the Lofts, even in the face of threatened lawsuits.

 It was a losing fight. In HUD’s view, resistance to affordable housing is in itself discriminatory and bore the threat of even greater charges.
 
By June of 2016, Whitehall finally caved to the federal government’s pressure. They altered their zoning laws to meet HUD’s demands and agreed to sign a Voluntary Compliance Agreement allowing the project to advance.

As Commissioner Philip Ginder, caught between signing an oppressive agreement voters did not want; and facing mounting lawsuit threats, said before voting, “This is one of the hardest ‘yes’ votes I’ve ever made in my life.

 Among other stipulations, Whitehall ‘voluntarily’ agreed to:

 Defend their zoning changes from third party challenges and,

“…extend its full cooperation throughout the remainder of the planning, application and approval processes relevant to development of The Lofts, and throughout the infrastructure development, building permit process, construction, and initial rent-up phases of The Lofts.”
 
Whitehall had to “actively promote the Lofts by endorsing the development…”

In the biggest sting of all, HUD ordered the Township,
 
“No later than December 28, 2016, to remit the amount of Three Hundred Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($375,000.00) to Complainant PathStone.”
 
The payment was in satisfaction for,
 
“PathStone’s claims for monetary compensation, additional carrying costs, out-of pocket expenses and additional staff time related to development of The Lofts from the time of the May 20, 2014, denial by Respondent Zoning Hearing Board, as well as additional payments to the current owner of subject property to reserve PathStone’s purchase rights, the expense of reapplication for PHFA funding in 2015, additional interest on the predevelopment loan for The Lofts, and attorneys’ fees and costs.”


What happened in Whitehall Township can happen in any community that has zoning laws and accepts federal money for fair housing or urban development. Even if AFFH is overturned, as the Whitehall case shows, the agency can claim discrimination for a host of reasons that may or may not be fair to communities. This is why communities must protect their local autonomy and their right to control zoning and land use. 

Community members must stay informed and involved. Learn about HUD and how their grant requirements can alter your town, city, or county. Study the effects of regional sustainable development on local jurisdictional authority, on taxes, and on lifestyles.  Then work with local officials to protect your neighborhoods for now and for future generations.

Warren, Waters and The Tsunami of Tolerance

Warren, Waters and The Tsunami of Tolerance- “See how quickly leftist tolerance is replaced by violence and vitriol.”

by Bill Lockwood

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Maxine Waters (D-CA) epitomize the Democratic Socialist Obstructionist Party. Both radical women are leading candidates for Lenin’s Disruption of Society Award. Unfortunately, these twin-sisters of the communistic left are chieftains in the Democratic Party, even if one of them is not really of “Native American” bloodline, as she had boasted.

During the debate over whether or not to nominate Senator Jeff Sessions as Trump’s Attorney General, Elizabeth Warren boldly violated the standing rules of the Senate by calling the conservative icon a “disgrace.”

Endeavoring to skirt around the Senatorial regulations which forbid such name-calling, Warren did her nefarious work of trying to besmirch the character of Sessions by “quoting” the late Senator Ted Kennedy. She nevertheless violated Rule XIX which reads, “No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words, impute to another Senator or to other Senators, any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.” The presiding officer at the Senate, Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) rightly sat Warren down.

Warren’s comrade-in-arms, U.S. Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA), meanwhile has launched a full-fledged publicity campaign on television saying that “she believes there may be reason to impeach Donald Trump.” She echoed this sentiment on Capitol Hill last Monday.

This is the tolerance of the Radical Left. 

Tolerance” has been the primary doctrine of the left for several decades. It has been preached on television, in the schools, in the halls of Congress, in collegiate classrooms, in editorial columns; in movies, music festivals and other forms of entertainment. Churches have been boycotted for supposed lack of it; Christians have been shamed for supposing there are still some activities which are sinful; legislation and judicial decisions have been handed down demanding that private businesses be more inclusive in spite of religious views; sports teams have refused to compete in states that seem to be less than “tolerant” on bathroom issues; and on and on.

This tsunami of tolerance with its creeds of “open-mindedness” and “inclusion” have always been suspected to be in reality a cover to stifle the free flow of ideas, particularly concepts of biblical morality and the Constitution.

Donald Trump’s election has completely verified this judgment.  Even such pleasantries as “reaching across the aisles” and “compromise” were crafted to bring to heel Constitutionalists. “Compromise” has resulted in a complete disfigurement of the Constitution and the concept of Limited Government under God as conceived and crafted into law by our Founders.

See how quickly leftist tolerance is replaced by violence and vitriol. This is because of the nature of left-wing is revolutionary to orderly society. Liberalism is not broad-minded at all, nor has it ever been. It is foolish for those on the right to have ever supposed it was.

With their hair on fire the socialistic left is no longer making any pretense of being magnanimous. From the state house to the court house to the field house the pink leftists in our nation are fomenting rebellion against the rule of law the likes of which we have never seen. They will not be mollified by the economic success of Trump’s policies nor placated by expanding freedoms of Americans. Tolerance was always and only a sham to gain political control.

Almost Amerika

Almost Amerika- “Why the unified leftist rage over the election of Donald Trump? Because Obama did not put the ball across the finish line.”

by Bill Lockwood

Even Lefty Liberals are confessing they have never seen anything like the current hateful, lawless, and unprincipled rage boiling out of halls of academia, the Main Stream Media, Hollywood and from the Democratic Party. As reported by Liberty Counsel, Former White House Secretary Ari Fleischer told a recent audience he had never before witnessed such hostility toward an incoming president. “I’ve never seen the left go so nuts, so early, so hard …” What is the explanation of this concerted left-wing fury over Donald Trump’s election? How are we to make sense of all of this turmoil?

Contradictory to television analysis, it cannot be that the Lefties in America are simply acting like spoiled children, though they are certainly doing that. Neither is it to be explained on the basis that they actually believe that Russia had something to do with our election, or loved Hillary so fervently. Common sense tells us that the reactions we are witnessing demand a fuller accounting than this. Exploding emotions across the map demands another interpretation. It is buried in that C-word that the liberal gate-keepers of culture thought they had banned from American discourse. Communism.

Collectivists have been laboring since the days of Woodrow Wilson to turn America into a socialistic state. Media and government progressives of all stripes have been swooning over the wonderful experiments in the former Soviet Union, even traveling to Moscow to learn under the tutelage of the Lenin’s and Stalin’s how to do it better. They praised Adolph Hitler’s Nazism of government-partnership with businesses—before his purge of the Jews made that unpopular. Mussolini’s fascism was the man of the hour to the press.

From the silver screen to the New York Times they have continued through the years to honor such bloody dictators as Ho Chi Minh, Chairman Mao, Fidel Castro, and Che Guevera. The outcome was predictable. Radicals of the 1960’s began pouring into our streets to support communist control across the globe and protest our involvement in the Viet Nam War where our brave soldiers were to defend tiny South Viet Nam from the Red Army. Jane Fonda became the “progressive” poster-girl as she was photographed with the big NVA guns that were blowing our pilots out of the sky. Hollywood lionized her. The media still loves her.

Finally, with Barack Obama, the Left began their end game. God-given liberty would be curtailed as the Constitution would be stood on its head. We would become Amerika: the USSA. United Socialist States of America. A cog in the Socialist International wheel.

Obama’s rap sheet showed that he was the man to complete the job.

Hope and change was to be revolutionary after the order of Vladimir Lenin. Obama’s entire life has been dedicated to communism. Bill Ayers, in whose house Obama began his campaign, is a self-described communist of the Weather Underground. After being recruited by communists, Obama’s lead in community organizing was in the main a Saul Alinsky project. Alinsky was a dedicated communist.

According to Obama himself, his main mentor during his youth was Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party (Party #47544). Later, at Occidental College, our future president traveled with Dr. John Drew who later wrote that Obama “was a Marxist-Leninist” who supported a violent communist revolution in America. It is little wonder that this is exactly what we began to see all across the nation as blacks from Ferguson, MO to Baltimore, MD exploded with rage and the Oval Office goaded them on by endorsing the violent-mongers.

Obama is hard-wired to the Marxist-driven Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), a well-known communist organization. According to Western Journalism DSA members served in Obama’s campaigns and many were appointed to posts within his administration. Van Jones is a perfect illustration of another official communist.

Judicial Watch recently obtained FBI files which reveal that Valerie Jarrett’s entire family has been hard-core communists, some of whom have even warranted investigation by the U.S. government in years past. Sam Webb, president of the U.S. Communist Party, announced in 2009 that “We now have not simply a friend, but a people’s advocate in the White House” (Western Journalism).  Not surprising since Obama was an actual member of a Chicago-based socialist organization called the New Party as well as another socialist organization called “Progressive Chicago.” These notes only touch the hem of Obama’s communist garment.

This is why Obama’s legacy includes a nation racially divided; a bloated debt; homosexuality enshrined as “marriage” for the first time in world history; dramatic expansion of a government surveillance state; social engineering via the HUD program; the complete entrenchment of Islamists in government; an open border with the executive office ordering our own Border Patrol to disobey the law; a gigantic expansion of unconstitutional Government Education with Common Core; and his single legislative “achievement” (ObamaCare) gained solely upon his flat-footed lie that we all might “keep our doctors.” A legacy encased in subversive immorality.

Back to the original question: Why the unified leftist rage over the election of Donald Trump? Because Obama did not put the ball across the finish line. In one massive effort, the sleeping giant of American middle-class aroused itself from its lethargy to elect a business-man who has promised to reverse the immoral collectivist trend. The final stage of Marxist society in which economic goods are distributed equally and outcomes are based on egalitarian concepts will have to wait. Lefties are furious. This is why, on Inauguration Day, there is War in America. Obama almost changed the spelling to “Amerika.” And the Left will not be peaceable until they do.

 

Does Congress Believe that “All Men are Created Equal?”

Does Congress Believe that “All Men are Created Equal?” – “We the “plebs” are incapable of sorting out right from wrong. ”

by Bill Lockwood

To Thomas Jefferson and the founding generation “All men are created equal” is a “self-evident truth.” This is one of the fundamental principles upon which the American experiment is grounded. In practical reality this earth-shattering God-given concept is anathema to many who do not view the world in Natural Law terms. It is an affront to the elitist superiority complex that inflicts so many people in power and influence. They are of the mind that some persons are more fit to rule than others. People at large need to be “managed” by the few. This is why throughout the ages men have consistently drifted into power-broker positions which assume that all men are not born equal, but most of us must be controlled; our lives managed by the few.

Just before Christmas President Obama signed a bi-partisan measure passed in the GOP-controlled Congress entitled the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military. But deep within the 1,500-page bill, sponsored by U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT), lies a totalitarian scheme entitled the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act. It is in bold reality a supervising strategy in which our elected officials will superintend what information we will be fed. Obama has not been whining about “fake news” for nothing.

During debates on the bill as liberal Republican and Democrats sought to push these measures through, it was argued that we need a “whole-government approach” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation.” Bottom Line: An official government organ needs to counter foreign government misinformation.

Portman complained that “there is no single U.S. government agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.” These foreign countries, continued the Senator, “spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations.”

This blatantly unconstitutional measure actually creates a bureaucracy that will serve to funnel “correct news” to media outlets. As Zero-Hedge accurately calls it, the United States has now an official “Ministry of Truth.” Shocking, and a good insight into how government operatives think. Their method of handling the hypocrisy of government agents such as Hillary Clinton, who have been caught in the Main Stream Media bed, is to create an official bedroom where this illegitimacy can occur with government approval.

What Shall We Say to These Things?

I have another suggestion. Let’s consider Congress as “servants of the people.” In this model, the population at large, operating in an open free market, should dialogue, debate, and explore various “news” and “points of view” –through paper, television, internet, etc.–and then We the People will instruct our Congressmen and Senators on how we wish them to vote on particular bills. “We the People” will be the gate-keepers and Congress our servants. Original, isn’t it?

Another thing. Why does Congress itself “debate” and “discuss” various bills with a multiplicity of viewpoints? It is simple. Because these elitist, snobbish, holier-than-thou Congressmen and women think of themselves in superiority terms. Only they can debate and hear both sides. Only official government appointees are mentally capable of entertaining various views and drawing conclusions warranted by evidence. All men are not created equal to these prima donna’s. We the “plebs” are incapable of sorting out right from wrong. “Let us sort through the options,” says Congress, “and we will tell you the correct news.”

What’s next? Disallowing commoners to vote on selected issues? As a matter of fact, that is exactly what exiting European Union Council head just proposed on the international stage. Slovak Prime Minister and EU Council boss Robert Fisco last week urged Council members to begin disallowing citizens in Europe to vote on important issues. “I am asking,” said communist Fisco, “EU leaders to stop with adventures like the British and Italian referendums … on domestic issues which pose a threat to the EU.” Apparently, that is the direction to which America is headed as well. Little difference exists between “disallowing citizens to vote” and “disallowing citizens information from both sides of an issue” that they may intelligently vote.

With the same doctrine the Roman Church throughout its history disallowed its members access to the Holy Scriptures. During the Middle Ages Bibles were literally chained to various structures in their facilities and the continuing belief today is that any interpretation of biblical issues outside the pale of the imprimatur of the Holy See is illegitimate. It was this practice of denying mankind the right of interpretation, based upon his inability to draw proper conclusions, that helped spark the Reformation Movement. Perhaps we need more than a Trump Revolution. We need a complete Reformation of the United States government.

Bill Lockwood: Socialism Breeds Corruption

Socialism Breeds Corruption- “What are the consequences of such a perversion? … In the first place, it erases from everyone’s conscience the distinction between justice and injustice.”

by Bill Lockwood

Listening to the current news should cause thinking Americans to stop and contemplate one of the prime causes of our deep-seated corruption. Corrosion in government seems to have reached new depths while personal integrity in leaders appears to be a thing of the past. Hillary Clinton, for example, following the lying pattern of Barack Obama (“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”), piles one fabrication on top of another. She actually lies about the lies she tells.

Her Benghazi fabrications, for example, are universally known and undeniable. A private email server in her bathroom in violation of federal law continues to cause people to lose their lives in Iran. The Clinton family is rife with valueless living. Obama pays ransom to the Iran government and flat-footedly denies it is a ransom. This brand of criminality is trickling down to the bottom in our once great nation. The number of people who will vote for Hillary Clinton is indicative of this.

One of the primary causes of this demise of character is SOCIALISM ITSELF. In the very nature of things socialism as a system actually breeds more corruption, both individually and in the community. Why is this?

The beginning point of socialistic theories is grounded in a deceptive sophistry. That hard-boiled lie takes the words “assist” or “help” and uses them as a club to steal from a person which he/she has earned. Under the false flag of “compassion” government lawlessly steals from one person to redistribute to others. Predictably, any opposition to this form of government plunder is met with by charges of lack of compassion.

Let’s illustrate it. President Obama pitches for an increase in welfare payments and/or recipients. Our entire system is larded with this style of government, be it Social Security, Food Stamps, Section 9 Housing, etc. This is sold to the American people from the time of FDR (Obama is not the first duplicitous chief) as a form of compassion.

Whose Compassion?

Just whose compassion services the welfare state? The productive citizen from whom the government forcibly takes to give to another? Absolutely not. If it is compassion in the citizen no forcible taking is required. The outlet of compassion is freewill giving, not paying taxes. If the socialists (aka Democrats) deny this, let them cut out the IRS tax code and learn how much compassion really exists.

Is it compassion on President Obama’s part? Not at all. No compassion for the poor exists in strong arm agent of the government who shakes down, with threat of prison, the working man to hand over earned dollars and cents to give to another. Forcing my neighbor to give his/her earnings to my other neighbor does in no way constitute compassion on my part.

For me to call this compassion is deception in its rawest form. But the above scenario is the very definition of socialism.  It is next to impossible to maintain any godly standard of morals or individual character when society has deceptively re-written its lexicon of definitions.

It is on the above understanding that the 19th century French economist, statesman, and author Frederic Bastiat wrote, “It is impossible to introduce into society any greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder. What are the consequences of such a perversion? … In the first place, it erases from everyone’s conscience the distinction between justice and injustice.”

He was talking about socialism as the great evil. This is where we are in America. The socialistic system is a grave evil precisely because it must plunder by force the private property of the producer to begin. This in turn is justified by a deception in which the face of THEFT is masked by COMPASSIONATE GIVING. Corruption is bred into the system.
