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.

Socialism: The Devil’s Gospel

Socialism: The Devil’s Gospel- “Our society seems to be going the way of all the earth—in a hand-basket…”

by Bill Lockwood

Genuine biblical principles of Christianity are frequently corrupted when the ill-informed blend deviant concepts with them. The resulting combination usually is more fatal than bald error because people are more willing, perhaps innocently, to adopt the hybrid. They cannot see the underlying fallacy. For example, the simple biblical teaching of creation is soiled by those who wish to mix with it the general theory of evolution. The result? Theistic Evolution. In the same vein, naturalistic theories of mankind have spoiled the pure sterling fundamentals of giving resulting in socialism. Consider both of these dangerous hybrids, emphasizing the latter.

Evolution

Charles Darwin, the popularizer of the theory of evolution, wrote to his evangelist, T.H. Huxley, on August 8, 1860. Referring to the general theory of evolution he said, “My good and kind agent for the propagation of the Gospel—i.e., the devil’s gospel” (Francis Darwin, Editor, Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, 1898, II, p. 124). As a scientist Darwin thought he knew, through the theory of evolution, all about life’s forms and particularly its origins. For the philosophy of evolution endeavors to explain the universe, our solar system, life’s origin and its manifold forms, the past, the present, the future, morality, and society in terms of natural processes. Consistent evolutionism erases the supernatural and explains all in terms of the natural.

As Bert Loewenberg put it: “Once a man was swept into the evolutionary orbit, the logic of science became applicable to all forms of human activity. The logic of science applied not only to rocks but to animals, not only to animals but to man. Hence the logic of science and the dynamics of evolution applied to mind, to morals, and to society. This was the Darwinian revolution. It was not a revolution in science alone; it was a revolution in man’s conception of himself and his works” (Darwinism: Reaction or Reform?)

Due to the influence of evolution, even the biblical teaching of mankind, as made in the image of God, was re-created into the humanistic model of a mere matter-machine that reacts, not to ideas and doctrines, but to mere physical pressures. “The Devil’s Gospel.” Medicate the man with chemicals, but certainly do not hold persons accountable for their actions.

Socialism

The political left is all about “Social Justice.” What exactly is Social Justice? Putting it most succinctly, the National Association of Scholars says the term is understood to mean the “advocacy of egalitarian access to income through state-sponsored redistribution.” Egalitarianism means that all outcomes will be equal. The wealthy need be less so. Families in poverty need to share in the former’s wealth. This is to be accomplished through the all-powerful state. After all, property is not to be privately acquired or owned but should be the commonwealth of all.

Now we know why the Al Sharpton’s of the world blame “the system” for the deaths of people like Michael Brown, the thug who was the catalyst for the Ferguson, MO riots. This he did at the Brown funeral. Sharpton is preaching the Devil’s Gospel of Socialism.

Socialism is constructed upon two main pillars. One, the collective ownership of goods and properties; and Two, that human behavior is solely determined by what one owns or is able to “access” in a society. Improvement of society therefore is tied to material possessions and the “collective ownership” concept justifies the strong arm of government making this happen.

How is this in reality “The Devil’s Gospel” of materialism? Because it causes man to look outside of himself and to blame others (or society) for his problems and ignore personal sin. Materialists and socialists therefore love to harangue the “injustices” of the system. However, the root cause, the heart of man out of which are determined the issues of life, is left unnoticed.

This is like a drug addict who blames the drug dealer for his problem or blames the system that has not removed drugs from society. The missing ingredient in this diagnosis is the all-important one: Personal Responsibility or Personal Behavior. Our society seems to be going the way of all the earth—in a hand-basket—and the Al Sharpton’s of the world are pleased to dither in false diagnoses.

But he is not alone. Even the National Council of Churches majors in the “devil’s diagnosis” of materialism by demanding a re-distribution of goods and services all across the spectrum of America. That the purity of God-inspired free-will giving has been confused with socialism of the first order by the National Council of Churches as well as other religious institutions and individuals who name the name of Jesus Christ, it does not speak well of our understanding of biblical principles.

Government re-distribution of America’s resources, even to non-citizens of America, is in reality The Devil’s Gospel of Socialism. Government thievery with the veneer of Christianity. Nothing to do with the Bible. At least Donald Trump sees this much.

Tom DeWeese: Five Actions to Control HUD’s Tyranny

Five Actions Ben Carson Must Take to Control HUD’s Tyranny – “…the net result is more poor, bigger ghettos and less hope of improvement.”

by Tom DeWeese

After twenty four years of a relentless drive for centralized government power through Clinton, Bush and Obama, finally there is a chance to roll back some of the destruction to our Republic.  Donald Trump has an historic opportunity to fulfill his promise to “drain the swamp,” meaning getting rid of the corruption, the power grabs, and the disregard for Constitutional law.

It’s vital to understand that federal agencies are basically operating without oversight, free to create thousands of rules and regulations that become the force of law. These rules come complete with threats of legal action and intimidation. Much of this enforcement is done behind the scenes, away from the public eye. But the result can destroy property, business, and lives.

To take effective action against this situation and fulfill on his promise, President Trumps must set a very specific priority for federal policy:
1. Assure the complete protection of private property rights for every American.
2. Immediately begin the process of reigning in the power, over reach, and illegal policies of every federal agency. One of the worst offenders of federal overreach and intimidation is fully represented in the day to day operations of the agency for Housing and Urban Development (HUD.)

HUD pretends to be the agency that represents low income citizens to assure they have “fair housing” choices and are protected from discrimination. In reality HUD’s policies do massive damage to the poor and steal away their ability to improve their station. After years of HUD intervention in development policy, the net result is more poor, bigger ghettos and less hope of improvement.

If President Trump intends to end poverty and help rebuild American wealth and restore the hopes and dreams of the poor and middle class, then private property ownership is the single most effective way to achieve it. Welfare and government programs will not do it. The poor simply have no avenue available to build personal wealth. All that is provided to them is a routine government handout which assures lifelong servitude to the government.

Right now HUD is enforcing a program called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) to destroy the property rights and property values of the middle class in communities across the nation. In the campaign candidate Trump promised to end this program. Now he must do it!

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

HUD is using the program for pure social engineering to change the very culture of the nation, and destroy the concept of property ownership. In the process, AFFH is using law suits and intimidation to destroy the founder’s concept of local rule in communities by taking away their freedom of self determination and development.

Now Trump has appointed Dr. Ben Carson as the new HUD Secretary. Many say he’s not qualified to run such a massive agency. Does he understand the problems he faces with this agency’s unrelenting assault on property rights and local home rule? What must he do to reign in this renegade agency?  Here are a few immediate steps Carson can take to stop this assault on property owners and local communities, while actually helping the poor.

First. Stop the grants. HUD and other agencies dangle federal money in front of local communities as a trap to force them to impose the HUD policies. These grants come with specific strings attached that make the communities spend more money and create more rules and regulations. The end result is that local rule is compromised, property rights and values are destroyed and cities are eventually transformed into politically correct, environmentally propagandized stack and pack utopian nightmares.

To help curb this federal assault on local communities Dr. Carson must greatly diminish availability of grant programs and make sure the remaining programs are written in precise, straight forward language clearly outlining the rules for use of the grant.

Second. Stop the drive for the establishment of regional non-elected governments. They force on communities a “one-size-fits all” approach and take government further from the people. Only the representatives chosen by the people should make policy for the community.

Under AFFH rules, HUD is automatically placing communities into specific regions and enforcing a once size fits all policy. Many times local officials are not even informed that they are placed in such regions. Regionalism is the most effective tool for  controlling private property, using rules and regulations from a ruling body no one voted for and no one can challenge or questions its policies.

Third. Work with Congress to write specific legislation that limits the Agency’s ability to create regulations beyond the intended scope of the programs. Over the years Congress has deliberately written legislation in near neutral language, leaving it up to the agencies to make their own rules. This failure to define exactly the meaning and intent of the legislation has allowed the bureaucracy to impose hundreds of thousands of rules and regulations that help to destroy the economy while building the power of the agency.

Fourth. Encourage whistleblowers to report on bad policy inside the agency. Who knows the situation better? Allow them to speak. Reward them for new, workable ideas for cutting costs and streamlining agency practices. Everyone knows that the federal bureaucracy is a mess in inefficiency, overreach and waste. The agency should be rewarded for cutting its budget rather than engaging in the annual “spend it or lose it derby” that encourages waste and spending to avoid budget cuts.

Cut the HUD budget to a point that it can only conduct the programs intended, thereby stopping its over reach, using congressional oversight to assure it remains under control.

Fifth. Move immediately to close down the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule. Federal agencies are to be of assistance to local communities, not a threat. Under AFFH law suits are becoming a way of life for local officials. It is the very definition of tyranny from the federal juggernaut. If Donald Trump wants to drain the swamp, AFFH is the number one alligator to be eliminated. Senator Mike Lee of Utah has already introduced legislation to de-fund it. He is ready, willing and able to work with Secretary Carson to get it done.

These guidelines are a good start and should be Carson’s goal for the first 100 days. Then he might want to consider starting a serious effort to eventually abolish HUD completely. It’s a socialist dinosaur and a threat to limited government in a free America.

Immigration and the “House of America”

Immigration and the “House of America”- “Controlling our borders and securing the House of America is not only not on their agenda; it is the very opposite.”

by Bill Lockwood

America is on fire. Mobs rove about the streets, harass passengers at airports and erupt over social as well as Main Stream Media and a placard-bearing rabble has become a daily sight around the country. Hollywood itself has become one gigantic Democratic Political Action Committee as awards banquets turn into more vitriolic spleen-venting against our president. Disruption of society is socialism on the march.

Just what is their beef today? Obedience to and enforcement of immigration laws by President Donald Trump. According to PolitiFact the presidential order “targets people from countries originally listed by the Obama administration as terrorist hotbeds—Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.” Refugees fleeing from Syria are also affected. President Trump pointed out that “This is not about religion—this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order.”

But the riotous left is unhappy. Controlling our borders and securing the House of America is not only not on their agenda; it is the very opposite. Let’s examine it—assuming that there are enough lefties remaining out of socialistic clutches who will soberly consider facts instead of ranting about the countryside.

First, consider the Founders’ position on immigration. As explained by Thomas Jefferson in his Notes on the State of Virginia, it is for the happiness and tranquility of a society that states actually join league together to form a federal government. Regarding that union, “Every species of government has its specific principles. … To these [principles] nothing can be more opposed than the maxims of absolute monarchies. …They will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or, if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, form one extreme to another.”

America will change dramatically from the God-given principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence in which “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.” Instead of individual rights we will see, Jefferson warned, a “heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass” precisely because they will “infuse into it [America] their spirit” and “warp and bias its direction.”

That this has already occurred cannot be doubted. Sharing identical or similar values is the key. For this reason, until the late Ted Kennedy practically single-handedly changed our system, immigration into America was regulated by the federal government taking into consideration the countries of origin of immigrants. Today, masses of people pour across our borders with little regard for our laws or Constitutional system founded upon God-given individual rights.

Second, America must beware of Muslim immigrants, period. Trump and the Republicans are laboring to explain to recalcitrant hordes that “this is not about religion” as evidenced by the fact that Muslims from over 40 different countries are not affected by this order. Be that as it may. In spite of the words of former president Obama on “Climate Change”– “the debate is closed”—the debate has not yet even occurred on Islam. Islam is much less a religion than a political system which is in the world to conquer. Islam is defined by three books called “The Trilogy.” All three volumes, the Koran, the Biography of Mohammed, and the Hadith, are nothing but basic strategy manuals on how to conquer a civilization by violence and bloodshed.

When Mohammed himself died in Arabia there was not a single person on the peninsula that disagreed with the man. This cannot be explained on the basis of freedom, but upon an authoritarian system at war with mankind—and America. If America cannot come to grips with this fact it is doomed.

Third, mob-actions mobilized by the socialists to disrupt society are unabashedly hypocritical. Elliot Abrams, in Newsweek (9-13-16), pointed out what has been obvious to many. His article is entitled “The U.S. Bars Christian, not Muslim, Refugees from Syria.” Abrams recognizes that “the headline for this column—the U.S. Bars Christian, Not Muslim, Refugees From Syria—will strike many readers as ridiculous. But the numbers tell a different story.”

Abrams goes on to show that as of September, 2016, America has accepted 10,801 Syrian refugees, “of whom 56 are Christian. Not 56 percent; 56 total, out of 10,801. That is to say, one-half of 1 percent.” However, “10 percent of all Syrians are Christian, which would mean 2.2 million Christians. It is quite obvious, and President Barack Obama and Secretary John Kerry have acknowledged it, that Middle Eastern Christians are an especially persecuted group.”

So how is it that one-half of 1 percent of the Syrian refugees we’ve admitted are Christian, or 56, instead of about 1,000 out of 10,801—or far more, given that they certainly meet the legal definition?”  This gross injustice, Abrams explains, is because even in the refugee camps, there is a persecution against Christians by refugee Muslims. Christians are therefore forced to flee their own United Nations refugee camps. The result: very few Christians enter America.

The point here is: Where were all those righteous placard-carrying street organizers or Hollywood elitists to protest this injustice against Christians? Why no protests against Obama or the Muslims he consistently defends in spite of their persecution of Christians? The legs of the lame are not equal.

Further, perhaps the American people ought to awaken from the stupor of political correctness to recognize that what is mentioned above regarding Islam in general is valid. Even less violent Muslims, who do not as consistently practice Mohammed’s jihad, are dangerous themselves, even if persecuted by their own kind. This is what America is allowing to enter the doors of our house.

Fourth, it is admitted that travel bans and immigration enforcement alone will not solve the problem. But it is a start. The real issue is the welfare state. Our republican government, as conceived by the Founders, was designed to protect equal rights, not provide equal things.

Samuel Adams stated, “The utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of wealth], and a community of goods [central ownership of all the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown.” He adds that these concepts are “in our government unconstitutional.”

But what has occurred? Over the past 75 years our nation has repudiated sound constitutional principles and turned into a socialistic morass in which government regularly plunders its citizens for redistribution. Ron Paul, former Congressman from Texas, adequately sizes up the situation in a recent column.

The solution to really addressing the problem of illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and the threat of cross-border terrorism is clear: remove the welfare magnet that attracts so many to cross the border illegally, stop the 25 year US war in the Middle East, and end the drug war that incentivizes smugglers to cross the border.”

Paul adds that, “The various taxpayer-funded programs that benefit illegal immigrants in the United States, such as direct financial transfers, medical benefits, food assistance, and education, cost an estimated $100 billion dollars per year. That is a significant burden on citizens and legal residents. The promise of free money, free food, free education, and free medical care if you cross the border illegally is a powerful incentive for people to do so. It especially makes no sense for the United States government to provide these services to those who are not in the US legally.”

Get America back to a Constitutional government is the true solution.

Fifth, the Leftists in America complain against Trump’s immigration policies that they are “unchristian.” Christianity should be about caring for the poor and downtrodden, not closing borders against the persecuted.

Confusion reigns here. America has always cherished its Christian principles. Above and beyond the Welfare Plunder State which is the legacy of the FDR’s and Lyndon Johnson’s, American churches continue to give away much more than any other peoples in history, whether it be to the foreign poor or to the home-born poverty-stricken. It is with little grace or reflection that street hordes denigrate the charity of America.

Charity, however, only encompasses individual action or congregational action. Government programs do not begin to answer God’s demands.

The centerpiece of socialism, on the other hand, is that individuals or groups are entitled to the wealth produced by society— to the material goods produced by others.  The “poor” are entitled to education, healthcare, food and the necessities of life. But these necessities are provided by someone else. Dig deeper into this idea.

The transfer of necessities or goods may occur in only one of two ways: (1) Free-will giving (contribution); or (2) Theft. As every American understands, our national leaders, both Republican and Democrat, are solidly in the second category. This has created the modern welfare state. But this is only about one thing: government forcibly removing from one citizen to re-distribute to another. To call this Christian charity betrays an abysmal ignorance as to the true nature of Christianity as well as of socialism.

To mask the real nature of this stealing the Left uses the phrase “Social Justice.” Liberals are demanding forcible redistribution, but are re-branding THEFT as “Justice.” As the National Association of Scholars defined it: “social justice” it is the “advocacy of egalitarian access to income through state-sponsored redistribution.” That is, others have a “right” to my income. So preaches Obama. So preaches socialists.

The French economist of yesteryear, Frederic Bastiat, provided us with a simple test to determine if something is actually “giving” or “stealing.” He wrote, “See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. . . It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.”

This is exactly where we are in America. So accustomed have the insurgents in our nation become to this mass stealing under socialism that they are now rioting from the State House to the streets and airports when any attempt is made to curtail it.

What all of this really is about is explained by Ann Coulter when she noted that “Democratic political strategists Ruy Teixeira and John Judis have been gloating for 20 years about how post-1965 immigration would soon produce a country where Republicans could not win an election, anywhere. Then Democrats could do whatever they want. They called the new emerging majority ‘George McGovern’s Revenge.’”
Nothing we are seeing in the wake of Trump’s executive orders has a thing to do with Christianity or charity. It has to do with turning America’s house upside down.

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.

 

Kathleen Marquardt: Incrementalism, Regionalism and Revolution

Incrementalism, Regionalism and Revolution – “We, America and the UN, are fighting wars around the world. None of them legitimate… ”

by Kathleen Marquardt

This is an article I wrote in 2012, and I am running it now in hopes that those who think Trump is our knight in shining armor and is going to wipe out all the evil/anti-western culture things that are now in our government policies. Even if he tries, he can’t. These policies are embedded in every level of local, state, and federal government. We can hope that he is able to steer the ship of state away from the far left it has been going in. But, we the people will still have the job of getting these policies out of our local governments, some of which have been part of our laws and regulations for over 100 years.

revolution(rev-loo-sh-n)
 1 a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system.
 • ( the Revolution) the American Revolution.
 • (often the Revolution) (in Marxism) the class struggle that is expected to lead to political change and the triumph of communism.

How many times have you heard someone say, “They (government) will only get my guns over my dead body.” Or, “Don’t worry, we patriots are locked, loaded and ready; we will save the Republic,”? Or “I HAVE MY GUNS AND AMMO, WHEN THEY COME TO GET THEM WITHOUT “CAUSE” THEY SHOULD PACK A LUNCH AND BRING BODY BAGS!” I spent some time wondering when all this was going to be sparked; what was going to be the incident that would bring about an uprising of the people.

To all those who carry that sentiment in their hearts, sorry, you are way too late. The globalists have been taking away our rights and conditioning us for slavery over the past hundred years. They bypassed the revolution and have co-opted us with barely a whimper. The sparks are many but way too small to be noticed by the naked eye.

Oh, there are plenty who can see exactly what is going on and can see who are the perpetrators of this take-over of America. But most of America is just wondering what hit them. If it could be explained in sound bites, we might get somewhere but the answer is not terribly complicated — just long.

So how did we get co-opted, and how did it start so long ago? I won’t go to the beginning. To know the early history of the American road to serfdom, read Fabian Freeway: High Road to Socialism in the U.S.A. 1884-1966 by Rose L. Martin (Jan 1, 1966), or The Creature from Jekyll Island : A Second Look at the Federal Reserve by G. Edward Griffin (May 1998). There are many more books and also videos that expose the early foundations of our downfall.

The result of Fabian planning, or better put, scheming is something called Communitarianism. This is the version of Collectivism or Socialism that is being foisted on the entire world. A simple definition is that the rights of the individual must be balanced against the interests of society as a whole. Where have we heard that before? We have been pummeled with the social justice notion of promoting the common good over that of the individual; that we must think of the community, the earth, our global neighbors, everything but us and our individual freedoms and rights.

But as Tibor Machan pointed out in 1991, “Communitarians wish to place community and individual on a collision course, saying there is some kind of balance that is needed between the rights of individuals and the rights of the community. But if we consider that “community” means simply a lot of other people than oneself, this makes for majority rule. If we consider that such other people usually leave it to a few who will speak out in their behalf, we will have a few community representatives dictating to the rest of us what we must do and what our “responsibilities” are. Communitarians are interested in diminishing the decision-making power of people as individuals. Yet, it is just such power that is required for a morally responsible life, including one that does full justice to our moral responsibilities to others.”

But that presupposes those in power care whether their form of governance promotes responsible behavior. The globalists or Communitarians are saddled with having a desired outcome (the reduction of 85% of the people on the planet, making slaves of the rest and taking all the land in the world for themselves {nothing about responsible behavior}) but, because that outcome might enrage most of the populace, they must disguise their desired end in touchy, feel-good doublespeak so that the people will not only accept it but use it as their guiding light. So far they have achieved their aims far better and easier than one would hope by using the environment as the club to beat us with: if you don’t quit using air conditioning . . . if you don’t quit building fences . . . if you don’t quit making dust you are going to destroy the earth. (At least they have quit with the global warming scare for the most part.) Read More

Castro’s Communism

Castro’s Communism- “This is Fidel Castro. This is a communist revolution.”

by Bill Lockwood

Fidel Castro, the brutal communist dictator of Cuba, responsible for the assassinations and political imprisoning of between 70,000 to 80,000 innocents, has died at the age of 90. Liberty-lovers are celebrating, such as the residents of Little Havana in South Miami, many of whom escaped the gulag state. We are reminded of the reason for their celebration by the writer Frank de Varona (Bear Witness Central) who accurately explains that “From the very beginning of Fidel Castro’s coming to power revolutionary violence and intimidation became the order of the day.” This included “summary executions” that astounded the world.

Predictably, not all world leaders are relieved with the passing of Castro. Foremost among them is Marxist Barack Obama who stated: “At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and the world around him.” Towing the same line, the Main Stream Media eulogizes the dictator by simply referring to Castro as the “leader” of Cuba. The affinity for Marxism needs no cover in today’s brainwashed society.

Castro

Fidel Castro was born into wealth in 1926. His father, a plantation owner, sent Fidel to the finest school in Cuba, the University at Havana. It was here, while studying social sciences, that young Castro read The Communist Manifesto and swiftly converted to the anti-god philosophy of Marxism/Communism. In a television interview in December of 1961 he boldly declared, “I am a Marxist-Leninist and will be until the day I die.”

At the age of 17, according to Fidel himself, young Castro was recruited into the hard-core communistic ranks by a Soviet NKVD agent named Bashirov, who had come to Cuba. That was 1943. Castro then traveled to Czechoslovakia to receive first-hand communistic revolutionary training. Here he was advised not to become an “official” Communist Party member as that membership might become a stumbling-block to the free world when he would be sent back to Cuba for bloody violence. Little did the Soviets realize that the official label “Communist” would not be such a black mark to the leaders of America who had already become completely sympathetic to the ideology of communism.

In 1948 Castro helped inspire the communist riots in Bogota, Columbia, even announcing publicly the following: “This is Fidel Castro. This is a communist revolution.” Later, the United States State Department official of the Caribbean Desk, William Arthur Wieland, testified that he was perfectly aware of Castro’s associations, ideology, and involvement in while in Columbia. This mattered little to our own government.

Castro later, along with his brother Raul, who later personally oversaw the ruthless executions of thousands of political dissidents in Cuba, finally conquered Havana, wresting it from the Batista regime. The date was January, 1959. This was accomplished with the assistance of Che Guevera, the Argentine Marxist who helped establish their reign of terror.

Two US Ambassadors to Cuba during Castro’s coup, Arthur Gardner and Earl Smith (1957-59) later testified before a US Senate Subcommittee that it was actually the United States government that “played a major role in brining Castro to power.” Besides publishing pro-Castro statements and memos, our government stopped assistance to the embattled Batista regime. The Eisenhower administration’s Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles for example, had undermined the Batista government by refusing to ship almost 2,000 rifles to Cuba. The United States had also persuaded other governments from around the world not to sell weapons to the Batista army.

The Media

In the end, it was primarily the Main Stream Media, the same one that promotes the notion that there is too much “fake news” on the internet, so much so that the ignorant public must have a “regulatory” board to vet information for consumption, that propped Communist Castro into power with its relentless stream of communist propaganda.

Though the facts were on the table for all to see, Edward Murrow produced a completely favorable TV special in behalf of Fidel Castro in 1959. Claiming the same thing that the State Department had said regarding Mao Tse Tung years earlier, that he is simply ‘an agrarian reformer’ who wants peace and liberty, Castro began to be catapulted to stardom.

Ed Sullivan, the host a TV variety show, endorsed young Castro to Americans with a slobbering favorable interview. Herbert Matthews of the New York Times wrote three glowing reports of Castro on the front page. Castro was hailed by Matthews as the “Abraham Lincoln” of Cuba! Matthew had earlier lionized other communist dictators around the world. William Atwood of Look magazine sang Castro’s praises, as did Dickey Chapelle in Reader’s Digest. Little wonder that Arthur Gardner and Earl Smith both credited not only our own United States government, but the press with bringing Castro to power.

The final insult to freedom came however, with John F. Kennedy’s “Bay of Pigs” debacle. When freedom fighters who had fled from the murderous Castro came to Florida, they planned an invasion back to their homeland of Cuba. The CIA actually put together the plan which promised air support to these 2,000 exiles who would land on the beaches of Cuba to retake their island home.

It was President John F. Kennedy himself who, after the freedom fighters had launched for Cuba, cancelled the air support. Kind history writers tell us it was due to the President’s “vacillation.” But the bloody massacre of these exiled fighters, composed of doctors, lawyers, and blue-collar workers, who had been promised United States support who were now on the beaches facing Castro’s seasoned revolutionary army, can only be called treasonous.

In the same treasonous spirit President Obama shakes hands with murderer Raul Castro and eulogizes his dead brother while explaining to the world that the cruel dictator Fidel Castro, will be judged by history as “a tremendous figure.” No judgment for mass murder from his lips! No condemnation for creating a communistic slave-state! No mention of treason and assassination! Just a tremendous figure. Judgments from our Marxist president are only reserved for Americans who wish to return to our lawful Constitutional system.

Marxism on the March

 Marxism on the March-“President Obama has been marching with these socialists/Marxists his entire life.”

by Bill Lockwood

Make no mistake. Marxism is on the move. As reported by NPR News, protests against Donald Trump’s election are erupting across the country. Crowds gathered in Union Square in New York City; in Chicago and Washington, D.C. barricades are now erected around Trump properties to keep the potential violence at bay; in Los Angeles protesters shut down the 101 Freeway and Trump was burned in effigy while others beat a Trump piñata.

Similar scenes are being witnessed in Philadelphia, Boston, New Orleans, Atlanta, Miami, Richmond, VA; Providence, RI, Omaha, NE; Kansas City, MO and Portland, ME. American flag burning was featured at least at one of the rallies. Obama did his job well.

Sponsored by such well-known communists as George Soros, who poured millions of dollars into front organizations across America in order to influence elections, young ignorant violent millennials are stunned, to say the least. These young socialists, instructed diligently by collegiate Marxist professors, led by a Marxist president, sponsored by Marxist money, are in total disbelief that freedom-loving Americans are trying to get America back.

One picture is worth a thousand words. Photos from protests in Seattle show mass-produced signs by the organization socialistalternative.org. Socialist Alternative claims to be “in political solidarity with the ‘Committee for a Workers’ International, a worldwide socialist organization in 47 countries, on every continent….”

These socialists demand $15 an hour minimum wage; free education from preschool through college [read, paid for by the American taxpayer]; stop the drive to “privatize” education [read, disallow parental choice and instruction]; free health care [read again, taxpayer funded, government-controlled]; major tax increases on ‘the rich’; a minimum guaranteed weekly income of $600/week for the unemployed, disabled, stay-at-home parents, the elderly, and others unable to work; public ownership of bankrupt and failing companies; demands public ownership of the top 500 corporations and banks and dole out its earnings to the “broader public,” and on and on. One can read the rest in cliff-note form by perusing the Communist Manifesto.

Upheld as great reformers by socialistalternative.org are well-known American socialists of yesteryear such as Eugene Debs. Vladimir Lenin is lionized as a Soviet icon to follow. Socialistalternative.org members are encouraged to read Lenin’s book that “shook the world” entitled State and Revolution. The online review opines, “If we want to change society, we must first understand the laws that govern its development, including the repressive institutions of the state which reflect the division of society into social classes with opposed interests.”

Though it was written 100 years ago, the ideas in State and Revolution are still relevant for socialists who seek to connect with current consciousness and point the way towards the socialist transformation of society. Every socialist can gain valuable insight on how we work today for the socialist future where a state, with all its coercive power to compel people to maintain ‘order,’ is no longer necessary, and we can finally live in free association with one another.”

President Obama has been marching with these socialists/Marxists his entire life. Hence, the divided country that we are witnessing. To the stree-protestors the promise of a New Socialist Country was within reach. And now they are beside themselves as Americans are moving toward liberty under Trump.

To those who are about 100 years behind the learning curve and are disposed to contest what is the cloth out of which Obama is cut, consider:

Obama grew up in a household that admired socialists; he was personally mentored by communist Frank Marshall Davis; his biography was ghost-written by communist Bill Ayers, with whom he began his political career for president; he joined socialist organizations during his college career; his cabinet as president originally was composed of some who were card-carrying communists (Van Jones, for example); his “pastor” for two decades, Jeremiah Wright, is a communist-sympathizer; his White House open-door policy to communist agitators such as Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter (began by communists); and his agenda reflected Marxist ideals.

This all merely demonstrates how close modern-day socialists have believed their dreams of a United Socialist States of America were believed to be. Now that Obama has been booted from the White House, they will increase pressure to threaten peace and liberty.

Socialists do not want truth from Trump or freedom for Americans. They want radical unconstitutional lawless change in which our liberty is traded for a bowl of pottage: slavery. The real hate is pouring out into the streets, threatening to disrupt peaceful society.

Jesse Lee Peterson: Hillary for ‘Dummies’ (a word to the wise)

Birth of a Hate Movement – Jesse Lee Peterson lists top 10 facts that disqualify Clinton for President

by Jesse Lee Peterson

By now, we all know that FBI Director James Comey has announced his agency has reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, just 11 days before the election. Although this development certainly appears to be a major setback for Hillary, knowing that she and other high-ranking Democrats are pressuring Comey to “dispel any misleading impressions,” and also knowing that Comey has already failed to properly investigate Hillary, it’s certainly possible that the FBI director could cave, and soon release a statement essentially exonerating Hillary. And there’s no doubt the Democrats will unleash hell in a last-ditch effort to derail Trump.

Therefore, it would be wise for voters to resist allowing their minds to be whiplashed by the news cycle and consider what they already know about Hillary Rodham Clinton:

1) Consider why there is an email scandal to begin with. Hillary chose to run her official government communications through a private server in her basement. Why would she do this, other than to escape scrutiny? Seeing the damning WikiLeaks releases confirms any suspicions.

2) A threat to national security: As secretary of state, Hillary and her team exposed highly classified information to our enemies. FBI Director Comey himself described her as “extremely careless.” Hillary deleted 33,000 emails after she received a subpoena to turn them over. Her team destroyed Blackberry phones and cleaned her devices with BleachBit to prevent investigators from retrieving the data. We all know the only reason Hillary is not in jail now is because she is being protected – up until now by FBI higher-ups and Obama’s “Justice” Department, led by Loretta Lynch, who was a litigation partner for eight years at a major Washington law firm, Hogan & Hartson LLP, that did tax work for the Clintons.

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

3) She is corrupt: Hillary claimed that she and Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House, yet today the Clinton’s net worth is an estimated $111 million! They’ve never operated a business nor manufactured a single product, so how did these career politicians amass a fortune? By peddling her influence as secretary of state and selling access to the White House. In 2010, governments and aid groups pledged $10 billion for Haiti’s earthquake recovery. The Clintons helped themselves by exploiting the Haitian earthquake to give favors to influential donors. There has been little reconstruction in Port-au-Prince. Under Hillary’s watch, the State Department cannot account for $6 billion in contracting money. Hillary also gave $165 billion worth of arms sales to 20 nations that had donated to the Clinton Foundation.

4) Disastrous policies: Hillary supports sanctuary cites. She has promised to use executive orders to implement amnesty and strict gun control. Hillary plans to allow 500 percent more Syrian refugees into the U.S.! She was author of the failed universal health-care plan in 1993. Hillary advocated early withdrawal from Iraq and called for U.S. involvement in Libya. Both nations have become training grounds for Islamic terrorists.

5) A “congenital liar”: In 1996, New York Times columnist William Safire labeled Hillary a “congenital liar.” Hillary proved this label to be accurate when she denied sending or receiving classified information from her private server, when she blamed the Benghazi terrorist attacks on spontaneous protests over a video, when WikiLeaks exposed her private support for open borders, when she claimed she landed under sniper fire in Bosnia and so on.

The Wild Wild West of News

The Wild Wild West of News –“Remember, Obama has actually bragged about lying to the American people…”

by Bill Lockwood

True to his Marxist roots President Obama, in the waning days of his tenure in office, decries what he calls the “wild wild west” of news while suggesting that some agency should have a “curating function” to filter what is “approved” for public consumption. Speaking at a Pittsburgh conference last week, comrade Obama even proposed that “we are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to.” REBUILD? “We”—collectively?

A “curator” calls for someone or agency who is “in charge.” Sometimes it is used for “a guardian” to oversee a minor. This is exactly how Obama sees Americans. The free-flow of information is harmful to minors who need be spoon-fed government-approved information.

Continued the lying dictator-in-chief: “There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world.” Remember, Obama has actually bragged about lying to the American people —“If you like your doctor, etc.”

Another government bureaucracy added “to sort” through internet, television, radio, and printed material to apply basic “truthiness” tests. This does not simply sound like the Hitler’s and Stalin’s of the world, it is precisely what their programs of totalitarianism enacted.

As unbelievably astounding as Obama’s proposal is, he continued unfazed: “The way I would like to see us operate is, yes, significant debate and contentious debate, but where we are operating on the same basic platform, same basic rules, on how do we determine what’s true and what’s not. Everything on the internet looks like it might be true. And so in this political season, we’ve seen — you just say stuff. And so everything suddenly becomes contested. That I do not think is good for democracy, and it’s certainly not good for science, for progress, for government, for fixing systems.”

A government-sponsored media-organ would not be “censorship” Obama schmoozed. “But it’s creating places where people can say ‘this is reliable’ and I’m still able to argue safely about facts and what we should do about it.” Only within certain parameters will “vigorous debate” be allowed.

Thomas Jefferson

Respect for the law of the land as well as basic components of liberty is something completely alien to Barack Obama as well as Hillary Clinton. There is an amendment of the Constitution that expressly, in so many words, declares that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”

The core concept of the Bill of Rights is that people enjoy liberties because they are bestowed upon us by God Himself and that the government created for Americans is forbidden by the people to even touch the hem of the garment of these liberties.

As Thomas Jefferson observed, the fact that several liberties were enumerated in the First Amendment means that “whatever violates either throws down the sanctuary which covers the others” and that “The liberty of speaking and writing … guards our other liberties.”

This election is about liberty. Will we enjoy what remains of that which God has given us in America? Much of it has already been eroded by the government. Or, will we succumb to the comrades of the Democratic Party who would love nothing more than to control you from cradle to grave?

Freedom-loving Americans resent the notion which lies behind all of these Big Brother proposals. It is the assumption that we need government to decide for us what political and religious information we will consume and what we will not. No thanks, Barack, we would rather live in the wild-wild-west of conflicting information and sort it out ourselves than be locked into government-sponsored “safe zones” being fed crumbs that fall from the rich man’s table.

MARK CHRISTIAN: HILLARY’S ACHILLES HEEL

HILLARY’S ACHILLES HEEL – “Benghazi exposed her role in promoting Islam’s global ascendance.”

by MARK CHRISTIAN

November 8 may very well go down in history as the day Americans signed our nation’s death certificate. We the people need to understand what is at stake in the most important election in U.S. history. A Hillary Clinton vote will mean the death of free speech, the right to bear arms, and the right to life for the unborn. Most significantly, a vote for Mrs. Clinton will give birth to an Islamic theocracy and its supremacist ideology here in America.

Wednesday night’s debate may well be Donald Trump’s last significant opportunity to expose Mrs. Clinton as the candidate whose subversive policies will bring this great nation to its knees. It’s time for Mr. Trump to get specific and go for her Achilles heel — Benghazi.

Russia has purportedly exposed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as complicit for the turmoil in the Middle East, and now they are working feverishly to quiet those revelations by claiming that Russia is hijacking the election. Mr. Trump must use his platform to further expose the ugly truth about Hillary Clinton and her dangerous agenda. If he doesn’t, we have everything to lose.

Mrs. Clinton understands full well that Benghazi is a representation of what happens when world leaders play with fire — and that fire is Islam. The attack on our embassy and CIA compound in Libya was not an isolated Muslim attack on Americans because of an inflammatory video against Islam. Rather, it was a demonstration of what happens when two sects of Islam are represented by powerful nations, each side seeking the defeat of the other. Though the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 and the deaths of four men seem to be a mere bump in the road for Mrs. Clinton, the precipitating event and the aftermath reverberate today.

The Arab Spring set in motion a series of events in which one secular government after another was toppled in favor of neither freedom nor democracy, as the western media wrongly theorized, but rather more repressive Islamist regimes. While inconceivable to freedom-loving Americans, the advancement of Islam is not surprising to me, a former Muslim, who understands implicitly that countries in the Middle East and northern Africa believe governments get legitimacy from one source — their god. Not from the will of the people. Not from a movement for freedom. From the god of Islam. And Islam is on the move, sweeping the globe in search of nations ripe for a transition from secular rule to the theocratic rule of Islam. Make no mistake — America is in its crosshairs.

Hillary Clinton, who has been an active participant since 1996 in this Islamic agenda to establish a worldwide caliphate, was President Obama’s ideal choice to head up his pro-Islamic State Department and advance that agenda. But theocratic Islam and the United States Constitution cannot coexist. If the American public understood what really happened at Benghazi and the role played by Mrs. Clinton, voters would turn away en masse.

What happened that September night four years ago can be summarized as a clash between two opponents who have been battling one another for hundreds of years, the Sunnis and the Shiites. And the United States is most certainly picking sides in favor of the larger, more militant form of Islam. In the Sunni corner are Obama-Clinton, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. On the Shiite side are Syria, Iran, Hezbollah and Russia. Are you starting to see any parallels here with current foreign policy initiatives that have led to increased saber-rattling between the United States and Russia with regard to Syria?

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered because he, at the behest of Mrs. Clinton and the Obama administration, was stockpiling weapons and sourcing the expert fighters who could use them to topple Bashar Assad’s secular rule in Syria in favor of an Islamic theocratic government. Those “rebel” fighters, who are affiliated with al Qaeda and the Islamic State, are still at work today in their quest to destroy and replace Mr. Assad. Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton know very well that Mr. Assad, along with Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, are fully responsible for the Benghazi raid. Their narrative that the attack was the work of a small band of militants was debunked long ago.

If the voting public understood Benghazi and our role in propelling the Arab Spring uprisings in favor of Islamic governments, Mr. Obama would not have won a second term as president. He would have been prosecuted. And if it became public that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored the deaths of the four Americans while the embassy was under siege and rather focused on ordering that all of Mr. Stevens’ classified files about the covert operation be destroyed, she would no longer be a viable candidate for president. Protecting the lives and interests of Americans should be top priority to the president of this nation. Mrs. Clinton, however, protected herself, the administration and the Islamist agenda.

Mrs. Clinton’s commitment to Islam has continued unabated with her successful push to make Islamic doctrine mainstream in the United States. She and Mr. Obama have worked diligently to transform America from the inside out by importing thousands of Muslims in the name of humanitarianism and compassion, with Mrs. Clinton vowing to increase that number if elected. Any pushback is quickly relegated to the sidelines as Islamophobic rhetoric.

Mr. Trump knows the truth of Benghazi. The world envisioned by Mrs. Clinton does not jibe with American ideals. If we, the electorate, do not stop her at the ballot box, we will have only ourselves to blame for World War III.

Ron Hosko: Black Lives Matter’s anti-police crusade makes unrest new normal

Black Lives Matter’s anti-police crusade makes unrest new normal – “The BLM is an organization reborn from the Vietnam war era, with a political ideology steeped in Marxism and Black Nationalism.”

by Ron Hosko

Ask any police department recruiter across the country about efforts to attract new officers and you will likely get a similar answer — fewer people are willing to wear the uniform, fewer see a future in policing, fewer want to risk their futures on a profession where you face public disdain, media attacks, and the increased potential for financial wreckage from unwarranted charges. Frankly, can we blame them?

A Seattle police recruiter told ABC News, “You can get shot at for $40,000 or be home with your family for $60,000.” In Chicago, a police recruitment fair held in January drew fewer than ten people. The city is racing toward 600 homicides and has over 3300 shot so far this year while the police and detective ranks are massively understaffed.

This past spring, Dallas police cancelled two police academy classes due to lack of interest. A spokesman for the International Association of Chiefs of Police says the number of candidates applying for jobs in the rural south is down as much as 80 percent. The Los Angeles Police Department loses five officers a day to retirement and in Baltimore, where police are routinely harassed and vilified by anti-cop activists, 400 of 500 eligible officers have taken early retirement.

The Washington Post recently featured a story examining how the nation’s capital is struggling to recruit qualified candidates to patrol DC’s increasingly violent streets. The Post noted how police work has, “lost some luster” and cited declining recruitment rates of 26 percent in 2014 from the year before and dipped an additional 28 percent in 2015.

False narratives created and perpetuated by the Black Lives Matter movement and embraced by the mainstream media are clearly a root cause for much of the civil unrest directed at our police today. Noted criminologist and law enforcement expert Ron Martinelli describes how BLM didn’t spontaneously rise from some pop social media movement. BLM, according to Martinelli, is “a large, organized, well-planned and funded political action group with international outreach extending to Cuba, Northern Ireland, Europe, and the Middle East.”

The BLM is an organization reborn from the Vietnam war era, with a political ideology steeped in Marxism and Black Nationalism. Literally all of the heroes of the BLM founders are former convicted cop-killer Black Nationalist revolutionaries from the old Black Panther, Black Liberation Army and Weather Underground organizations,” Martinelli writes. Who can forget the protest in St. Paul, Minn. where BLM “activists” chanted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon!” Celebrity entertainers Jay Z and Beyoncé lavish praise on BLM and celebrate their dangerous cause. BLM also receives massive funding from liberal financier George Soros.

Anti-police activity and rhetoric produces deadly consequences with ambush attacks on our police increasing in frequency.  Within days of a December 2014 New York City march where the chant was, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!” a Baltimore thug gunned down two Brooklyn officers parked in a patrol car.

In September, a Philadelphia man shot 18 times into the patrol car assigned to 19 year veteran, Sgt. Sylvia Young. Miraculously, the officer survived. Police later found a note from the shooter stating how he hated cops and parole officers. The Philadelphia attack followed ambush-style shootings in July that claimed the lives of five police officers in Dallas and three officers in Baton Rouge. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and noted author Heather MacDonald say it plainly, “War has been declared on the American police officer.”

Can anyone be surprised to learn how our nation’s youth are turning away from police work, opting for better paying and safer jobs in technology or manufacturing? While some may want to enter public service, they’re rightfully asking, “at what cost?” As we witness the final stretch of this presidential election and listen to candidate debates, speeches, and political ads, one can only hope for a revival of civility and return to much-needed respect for police and first responders.

Vilifying police — especially when the facts around many of these incendiary shooting incidents are largely ignored — will only generate additional mistrust and further erode police ranks at a time when more cops are badly needed. On our current course, growing numbers of law-abiding citizens will fall victim to the violence and brutality of criminals who grow more and more emboldened.

Candidates seeking public office should courageously and forcefully repudiate the hateful rhetoric of the BLM movement and their surrogates and offer substantive ways to invest in our police and rebuild trust with the communities they serve. Without it, militant cop-haters will grow stronger and will eventually make civil unrest and violence our new normal.
