Bill Lockwood: The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

by Bill Lockwood

With the recent shootings in America liberal politicians have proposed curtailing the God-given unalienable right to keep and bear arms as a method to stem the violence. From presidential hopeful Joe Biden recently telling Anderson Cooper, “Bingo” when asked about the government coming for “guns” to Kamala Harris’ proposal that if she is elected president she will enact “executive orders” to confiscate “assault weapons” when Congress fails to act, the Second Amendment needs to be re-asserted.

It is a historical fact that in nations where political leaders wish to remove properties and freedoms of the citizenry, they always begin by disarming the populace. This normally begins by requiring registration of firearms and imposing penalties when they do not. This is followed in many cases by federal governments deliberately provoking rioting and violence which is then used as an excuse to confiscate firearms.

The Second Amendment—A Prohibition

“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” The first thing to be noted is that the 2d Amendment is a strict prohibition against the federal government. It is not a declaration of rights, period. The right to keep arms was assumed to be God-given by the founders, but they added the Amendments to ensure that the national government would not touch these freedoms.

The Bill of Rights opens with this bold statement, “Congress shall make NO LAW …” What Joe Biden and his Democrat cohorts propose is unconstitutional on its very surface. Federal government has no say so in the matter. Making “no law” is pretty clear.

Second, there is a popular view today, though erroneous, that the 2d Amendment means that the National Guard should be able to keep and bear arms, but that the guarantee does not extend to ordinary citizens. Those who advance such an argument either have not read the Founders themselves who wrote the 2d Amendment, or hope you do not—or both.

The concern has always been, from the time of the creation of America until today, that a centralized federal government would evolve into a dictatorship or totalitarian state. The framers, with one voice, stated that the only counter measure to such gravitational pull over time was the populace itself. Alexander Hamilton, for example, in The Federalist Papers, asserted that liberty would always be ensured as long as the people were allowed to be “properly armed and equipped.”

James Madison, who authored the 2d Amendment, wrote that under the Constitution “the ultimate authority …resides in the people alone [due to the] advantage of being armed which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation.” Joseph Story, an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court (8112-1845), a foremost Constitutional authority, wrote:

The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary powers of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.

George Washington, commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, noted that

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence….From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security, and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable…the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference—they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.

Sam Adams, introduced in the Massachusetts convention the call to ratify the Constitution. In it he said that the “Constitution never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own guns.”

Sir William Blackstone (1725-80), though not a founder of this nation, was one of the top four quoted authorities on Common Law. Lawyers in America until the time of Abraham Lincoln normally carried Blackstone with them. Of the right to keep and bear arms, Blackstone said,

“Of the absolute rights of individuals: the fifth and last auxiliary right of the subject … is that of having arms for their defense …”

He explained that the basis for this right is the “natural right of resistance and self-preservation when the sanctions of society and laws are found insufficient to restrain the violence of oppression” (Alan Gottlieb, The Rights of Gun Owners, 1983, p. 6). It is as if Blackstone was mirroring current day America and the push of Democratic and Socialist lawmakers to open our borders to the entire third world, turning our streets into combat zones in some cases.

State Militia

Still, some cling to the wording of the 2d Amendment which states a “well-regulated militia” is necessary for the security of a free people to insist that this right to keep and bear arms be reserved for a specialized unit which one must join. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most Americans do not realize that they themselves belong to the state militia where they reside. Title 10, section 31 of the U.S. Code defines the militia of each state as “all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and under 45 years of age who are or have [made] a declaration of intent to become citizens” (W. Cleon Skousen, The Making of America, p. 694).

The United States Congress has weighed in on this topic as well. In 1982 a Senate subcommittee on the Constitution carefully documented the 2d Amendment understanding in a public report. After lengthy pages of history, it noted that in various states after the War for Independence many proposals called it a general duty for all citizens to be armed. Richard Henry Lee, for instance, observed that “to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them …”

George Mason of Virginia, drafter of the Virginia Bill of Rights, accused the British of having plotted to “disarm the people—that was the best and most effective way to enslave them.” Patrick Henry said that the “great object is that every man be armed and everyone who is able may have a gun.”

St. George Tucker, one of the earliest commentators on the Constitution and Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court, published in 1803 his annotations. He followed Blackstone’s citations (noted above) and pointed out regarding the 2d Amendment that it is “without any qualification.” So also, William Rawle’s “View of the Constitution” published in 1825. He emphasized that,

“The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by a rule of construction be conceived to give Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.”

The 1982 Congress summarized some of the above material. First, subsequent legislation in the Second Congress “supports the interpretation of the Second Amendment that creates an individual right. In the Militia Act of 1792, the second Congress defined ‘militia of the United States’ to include almost every free adult male in the United States.”

They went on to add that these persons “were obligated by the law to possess a firearm and a minimum supply of ammunition and military equipment.” “There can be little doubt from this that when the Congress … spoke of a ‘militia’, they had reference to the traditional concept of the entire populace capable of bearing arms, and not to any formal group such as what is today called the National Guard.” (Skousen, p. 699).

Second, the prohibition is strict and broad against the federal government or its officers from being able to address the issue of firearms or weaponry in the hands of its citizens. The reason is clear. As Joseph Story, in his Commentaries on the Constitution put it this way: the right to keep and bear arms is “the palladium of the liberties of the republic.” This is a natural deterrent to tyranny.

So, whether it is Elizabeth Warren, who wants to have the federal government involve themselves in background checks, or Kamala Harris, who has dictatorship-style plans to move unilaterally on guns if elected president, or Joe Biden, who plans to implement bans on “assault weapons” at the federal level, or Bernie Sanders, who promises some type of executive action on firearms—all of these are theorizing in unconstitutional territory. If the federal government can step into this arena—no matter how small a role—history shows that this foot-in-the-door will expand to larger roles as Constitutionally illiterate people pouring out of the colleges demand more federal control. Voters, beware.

 

Jesse Lee Peterson: LOVE WHITE PEOPLE OR LEAVE MY COUNTRY!

Jesse Lee Peterson challenges the true racists in government

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Somehow in this country, white people became the only ones called “racist” (even though “racism” does not exist; it’s either right or wrong, good or evil). Everyone is encouraged to hate white people. The Civil Rights Movement, which I regret participating in, only brought destruction. Blacks forced white private businesses to service them, and whites began catering to blacks. Then other immoral people came in and used black people for their own agenda, to bully the weak whites. Women who hate men, radical homosexuals, illegal aliens and others seduced black false leaders, comparing their wicked causes to blacks’ supposed “struggle.”

I often ask black and Hispanic liberal guests on my talk shows, “Do you love white people?” Rarely can they simply answer, “Yes.” But when I ask them if they love blacks or Mexicans, it’s suddenly an easy answer – “Yes!”

This month of July is my second annual celebration of White History Month. America is great thanks to white people. But it’s so overrun with blind white-hating people that we now have a Muslim woman with a head rag in Congress! Rep. Ilhan Omar, D.-Minn., is an evil, America-hating, Christian-hating “social justice warrior.” But she falsely claims, “I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born.” Her kind of “love” is the same emotional, egotistical spirit as angry single black mothers who raise thugs and defend them when they commit crimes.

I’ve been saying for years that if anyone does not love this country, they can leave! If you hate white people, and you believe in so-called “racism,” even though whites let you into this country, go back to Africa or wherever you came from! Same with the white communist antifa members who hate American freedom – get out of my country!

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

President Trump rightly said the same thing in a few tweets last Sunday. He suggested that these “progressive” Democrat Congresswomen “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” He’s right. But they won’t, because they’re hypocrites – including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley. Not only will they not fix their own communities, they want to mess up ours! They only offer abortion, immoral socialism, false victimhood and hatred of white people, men and Christians.

Although the president defended white female Democrat Nancy Pelosi against false accusations of “racism” by Cortez, Pelosi turned on Trump, paying back evil for good. In order to help “women of color” who hate her, Pelosi led a controversial vote condemning what she falsely called “racist tweets,” denigrating the president. In response, Trump pointed out that “this was the first time since 1984 that the Speaker of the House was ruled Out of Order and broke the Rules of the House.”

Thank God, a beautiful crowd in Greenville, North Carolina echoed the president’s sentiments, chanting, “Send her back!” – referring to America-hating, Israel-hating Ilhan Omar. The children of the lie, including the liberal media, Democrats, RINO Republicans and Never Trumpers, of course freaked out over the lack of political correctness. These deceivers hate good people, and support America’s enemies. Weak, cowardly establishment Republicans begged the president to distance himself from the “send her back” chant, which he obliged to a point. But when pressed by media, the president stood by the people of North Carolina as “incredible patriots.”

President Trump loves America, and said that these Democrat women “can’t get away with” denigrating its people. “I’m unhappy that a Congresswoman … can call our country and our people ‘garbage.’” He referred to Cortez (the socialist), who trashed the opportunities offered by this country, and called the late President Reagan and working white people “racist.”

Trump said, “I can tell you this, you can’t talk that way about our country, not when I’m the president.” These are the words of a real man. Not a weak, pathetic person concerned with silly notions of “racism,” “sexism” and whatever else they come up with – Trump stands on what’s right. He’s a straight, white, conservative Christian man of power – everything the children of the lie hate.

Ilhan Omar promised to be the president’s “nightmare,” which really means she wants to be America’s nightmare. Trump said, “She’s lucky to be where she is. … And the things that she has said are a disgrace to our country.”

I say shame on us for allowing such a woman to come here. But this is what evil wants. It’s time for the people on the side of good to stand up. Thankfully, President Trump is doing that.

There’s nothing more important than rebuilding men. There are no men in the Democrat Party – only weak beta males. Women run the Democrat Party, which is anti-American and of Satan. We saw what happened when men disappeared from black homes. The black community worships “mama” while they kill one another. Now other races, including whites, follow in blacks’ footsteps of self-destruction, by following women. Whites have turned to weakness and surrender, thinking the people of color will love them. That’s not the way.

Watch and learn from this president, who makes evil unwelcome again.

Jesse Lee Peterson: DEMOCRAT’S CIVIL WAR IS GOOD FOR AMERICA

Jesse Lee Peterson applauds as leftists turn on each other

by Jesse Lee Peterson

After several weeks of delay, President Donald Trump is following through on the promise to deport criminal illegal aliens from major cities across the U.S. Even though Trump has said the ICE raids will focus on dangerous criminals, Democrats are freaking out.

Protestors outside an Aurora, Colorado, ICE facility stormed the barriers near the building and pulled down an American flag off the flagpole and replaced it with a Mexican flag. In Tacoma, Washington, an armed “anti-immigration enforcement protester” was fatally shot after throwing “incendiary devices” at an immigration detention center.

Democrat politicians Kamala Harris, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg and others expressed their outrage and shock over these sweeps. California Governor Gavin Newsom and Hillary Clinton released messages instructing illegals on how to evade law enforcement.

ICE is complying and enforcing the laws that Congress has passed. Targeting those who have received due process and ordered removed and those who have committed crimes in the U.S., Democrat lawmakers are openly aiding and abetting criminals by helping illegal aliens and criminal fugitives to avoid law enforcement and obstructing their ability to enforce the law.

Democrats claim these immigration sweeps will separate families. The ACLU claims some of these people moved and the notices were sent to wrong address – what a bunch of crap! These people are illegals and criminals – they don’t have a right to ignore our laws and remain in our country illegally; it’s their responsibility to show up in court.

“Sanctuary” state laws prohibit local law enforcement agencies from helping ICE. This is a travesty, and these Democrat lawmakers are endangering the lives of innocent law-abiding American citizens. Democrat politicians care more about illegal alien families than they do American families. It’s all about future votes for the Democratic Party.

Jeh Johnson, former DHS secretary under Barack Obama, said the crisis at the border is far worse now, and these types of immigration raids are “standard practice” and occur all the time.

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

The new breed of Democrats is not hiding the fact that they want open borders. Ocasio-Cortez and the freshmen group known as the “squad” made up of Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., all voted against last month’s $4.6 billion House emergency border aid bill that was supported by President Trump, Republicans and most Democrats.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to get rid of DHS (Department of Homeland Security). She also said she hopes Democrats can come together as a party and stand up against what should be seen universally as a cruel régime. Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” in Congress don’t respect the U.S. Constitution, and they have no respect for the leadership in their own party. They flat-out lie about conditions in ICE detention centers. If they can’t get their way, they lie and even resort to attacking their own leadership as “racists.”

The last straw for some senior Democrats was Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that Pelosi was disrespectful to minority congresswomen. One senior lawmaker (who is black) blasted Ocasio-Cortez for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments “so inappropriate.” Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges.

In an interview last weekend, Pelosi told the New York Times that “all these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”

“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News, summing up members’ frustration with Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez and these far-left Democrats are bitter and disagree with the establishment liberals. Ocasio-Cortez and others ran against and beat incumbent Democrats. The radicals are not going to work with the establishment Democrats. They want to take the party further to the left and eventually off the cliff.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, who falsely accused President Trump and many other conservatives of “racism,” now have the tables turned. These older Democrats are getting back what they have been putting out for years.

The establishment Democratic Party leaders have encouraged radicals and socialists to hate President Trump. Along with the lying fake news media, they have protected and emboldened anarchist groups like Antifa. They have created the atmosphere that allowed Ocasio-Cortez, Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley to get elected.

The Democratic Party is in total chaos. Justice Democrats, a political action committee founded by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti, has been backing several liberal candidates to run in primary races against Democratic incumbents, a fact that has alarmed the Congressional Black Caucus, among others.

During a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation convention in Philadelphia, Rep. Ayanna Pressley took a shot at the CBC.

“We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice,” she said.

Establishment Democrats are being forced to take far-left positions. As the Democrats are cannibalizing their own and pushing for open borders, we need to shore up support for President Trump and conservative Republicans. If we stay united behind the president, we will defeat these radical Democrats and Keep America Great!

Bill Lockwood: Sweet Home Alabama!

by Bill Lockwood

Alabama governor Kay Ivey just signed into law the toughest anti-abortion bill in America. The new law, which such groups as the ACLU plan to challenge in court, makes it a felony for a doctor to perform an abortion at any stage of pregnancy—punishable by up to 99 years in jail.

Predictably, liberal groups are bewailing the measure. Staci Fox of Planned Parenthood Southeast said: “Today is a dark day for women in Alabama and across the country.” But it the meltdown prize goes, hands-down, to Alabama Democratic Senator Bobby Singleton. On the floor of the Senate he ranted,

“You don’t care about babies for real you just kicked them in the stomach, and you aborted them yourself! You just aborted the state of Alabama with your rhetoric with this bill!”

“You just aborted the state of Alabama yourself, and all of you should be put in jail for this abortion that you just laid on the state of Alabama! … Don’t come to me talking about giving big business some more incentive just to come to the state of Alabama to do business in the state of Alabama when you don’t care nothing about the citizens of the state of Alabama!” Singleton exclaimed.

“When you don’t care nothing about mothers in the state of Alabama! When you don’t care nothing about whether or not men take advantage of women and rape them and take something out of them and you still want them to have a child out of that bad act that’s on them, and you still want them to have a child! You just aborted the state of Alabama! You just raped the state of Alabama with this bill …!”

It is difficult to know where to begin with such an ungrammatical non-reasoning rant. What does “aborting the state of Alabama” mean? And why should it be punishable by death when Sen. Singleton thinks that murdering unborn children ought to be allowed? How is the state more valuable than its citizens?

Apparently, not everyone in the Bible belt is familiar with the prominent text from Psalms 139:13-14, “You [God] formed by inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”

How this will play out in the courts, who knows?

Jesse Lee Peterson, host of the Jesse Lee Peterson Show (Rebuildingtheman.com), commented only three words when asked about his home state of Alabama and its tough stance: “Sweet Home Alabama!”

AOC?

Now comes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter showing her true Democrat colors and blatantly lying about the law. She bemoaned the law this way: “Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable with jail-time, including women victimized by rape+incest.”

Of course, that is a bold lie. The law does not jail women who abort their babies, but the abortion providers. When called in the carpet for her lie, like a little child she lied again. Liz Wheeler of One America News Network put it clearly. “Under no circumstances would women be jailed for abortions. The abortionist would be penalized.”

To that public corrective, AOC responded to Wheeler with this: “Actually, it would be a felony for women—if those women are medical providers. See?” (Warner Todd Huston, godfatherpolitics.com).

Then follows another foolish statement repeated by AOC that too frequently goes unanswered. “This law forces people to be pregnant against their own consent.”

This reminds me of a pro-abortionist woman who told me upon one occasion, “If you [by government law] force me to keep the child, then you will have to help me raise it.” In other words, some of these women demand public hand-outs or welfare, financed by me, if they cannot abort (kill) their children.

No. There is the option that no one wants to discuss. Quit having sex outside of a legitimate marriage. Sexual activity has consequences—and it seeks to overturn the law of God to thrust the consequences of your sinful actions upon me.

But what about women who are victims of rape who are being “forced” to carry pregnancy to term? AOC gets all worked up about this. The answer is, if American went back to the standard of God which properly punished such crimes as sexual assault, then the issue would all but evaporate.

Deuteronomy 22:23-24 prescribes the death penalty for both the man and the woman in consensual encounters. In the next verses, 25-27, a sexual assault, not consensual encounter, is described. In this case, “then only the man who lies with her shall die. But you shall do nothing to the girl; there is no sin in the girl worthy of death, for just as a man rises against his neighbor and murders him, so is this case.”

Bringing back the death sentence, and execution in a timely fashion, shows that we are serious about these types of crimes. Instead, our soft penal system does not deter from crime, and sexual assault becomes rampant.

In the end, the question is: Is it life in the womb or not? The Bible and science agree that it is—from the moment of conception. Since that is the case—it is nothing less than murder to take willingly the life of the unborn. It is refreshing that lawmakers in the great state of Alabama understand this and will legislate accordingly.

Jesse Lee Peterson: LATEST DEMOCRAT TO EXPLOIT THE POOR

Jesse Lee Peterson slams blacks who elect politicians based on race

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh may be going to prison.

The 69-year-old liberal black Democrat is under investigation and facing corruption allegations after she received hundreds of thousands of dollars for her self-published “Healthy Holly” children’s books from major health care companies with deep ties to the city of Baltimore.

Agents from the Baltimore FBI office and the IRS executed search warrants on Catherine Pugh’s homes, city hall, her lawyer’s office, and six other locations.

As reported by the Baltimore Sun, the University of Maryland Medical System spent $500,000 for 100,000 copies of Pugh’s “Healthy Holly” book series in a no-bid arrangement while she sat on the system’s board of directors. The University of Maryland Medical System is a private nonprofit that operates 13 hospitals and 150 other health facilities in Maryland.

That wasn’t all. Pugh also had a similar deal with healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente between 2015 and 2018 while the company was trying to negotiate a contract with the city’s spending panel to provide coverage to city employees. Afterwards, the panel approved a $48 million contract. The Baltimore Sun reported the mayor did not recuse herself from the vote despite the apparent conflict of interest.

Other charities and businesses in Baltimore also reportedly paid tens of thousands of dollars for “Healthy Holly” books. Mayor Pugh reportedly earned some $800,000 from sales! The arrangement was supposed to distribute books to low-income daycare centers and school libraries, but there’s little evidence to show the books were delivered to classrooms. Pugh was getting paid, but it wasn’t for the children’s book.

Now, outraged Baltimore residents and city council members are demanding accountability and answers from the mayor. The Baltimore City Council (made up of Democrats) is united in calling for Catherine Pugh step down as mayor. Gov. Larry Hogan (a Republican) is also demanding that the embattled mayor resign.

“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership,” Gov. Hogan said in a statement. “Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead.”

So far, Catherine Pugh has refused to step down, and she has gone into hiding. In fact, the mayor has been on paid leave since April 1, citing a case of pneumonia.

Liberal black Democrats like Catherine Pugh assume power by campaigning on themes like “reform” and “economic opportunity” for depressed inner-city communities, but ultimately they are seeking power and wealth for themselves. They don’t care about their constituents. These power-hungry black Democrats use their race and gender to get into office; and once elected, they use their position to steal and get rich.

If Catherine Pugh were white, she would be in jail right now! It is impossible for a white politician to commit the fraud Mayor Catherine Pugh is alleged to have perpetrated for years and still be free. I’m sure the only reason we are hearing about Pugh’s corruption is because it’s so egregious and blatant.

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

There is a long list of Democrat mayors and politicians convicted of corruption, theft and fraud. Two of the most notorious black Democrats are Ray Nagin of New Orleans and Kwame Kilpatrick of Detroit.

Black Democrats have a sense of entitlement. Black female Democrats are especially shameless and feel unassailable because they have been getting away with using their race and gender to do outrageous things, including blatant crimes. And when these no-good liberal Democrats are caught or questioned about their illegal and immoral activities, they immediately blame “racism” to quash and silence disapproval from the law and whites.

The last three mayors of Baltimore have all been liberal black female Democrats, and they have all been dreadful.

This is the second time in a decade that a Baltimore mayor has faced corruption allegations.

Mayor Shelia Dixon was forced to resign in 2010 after she was found guilty of embezzlement and theft.

Then there’s Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the disgraced former mayor of Baltimore who sided with rioters against police after the death of drug dealer Freddie Gray in 2015. Rawlings-Blake and the incompetent State Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby falsely led the public to believe that Gray was murdered by police. Blake and Mosby allowed Black Lives Matter activists to riot and loot businesses in the city. At the height of the riots, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told police to give black people room to destroy! In the end, charges were dropped against the police officers in the Freddie Gray case, but Rawlings-Blake and Mosby were never held accountable for what they did to the city. What a shame!

Most black Democrats are corrupt, and they seek political power in order to enrich themselves. It’s not “racism” that has destroyed our inner cities – it’s the Democrats, especially corrupt black Democrats.

It’s time for blacks to stop electing politicians based on race and elect their representatives based on merit and character. That is the only way to ensure real change and end the corruption in these Democrat controlled hell-holes.

Jesse Lee Peterson: HYPOCRITES! DEM MAYORS AGHAST AT TRUMP PLAN FOR ILLEGALS

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson notes, ‘last refuge for liberal scoundrels is to name-call’

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Fed up with Democrats refusal to help stop illegal aliens from flooding into the U.S. across the southern border, President Donald Trump said he is “giving very strong consideration” to a plan to bus detained illegal aliens to so-called sanctuary cities.

Donald Trump said in a tweet that the radical left always seems to have an open-borders, open-arms policy, so his proposal should make them very happy. Trump also said that the Border Patrol is apprehending thousands of people every day, and because of current law they are only allowed to be held in custody for 20 days before being released into the U.S.

Liberals are throwing a nasty temper tantrum over Trump’s plan. President Trump and Libby Schaaf, mayor of Oakland, Calif., a sanctuary city, traded barbs on Twitter. Mayor Schaaf also appeared on NPR and responded by saying, “This an outrageous abuse of power and public resources … using families and children – human beings – as political retribution. … I am proud to be the mayor of a sanctuary city. We believe they’re safer. … We embrace the diversity. …”

Despite all the great things Schaaf said about illegals, she was evasive and dishonest about whether she would accept busloads of illegals in Oakland. Instead, the mayor responded by calling the president “racist.” The last refuge for liberal scoundrels is to name-call. The children of the lie don’t have truth on their side, so they will always resort to name-calling and lies to silence their critics. Liberals also knowingly conflate the issue of illegal immigration with legal immigration in order to confuse and deceive the public.

Libby Schaaf is the same Democrat mayor who helped illegal aliens convicted of crimes to evade ICE and other law enforcement agencies as they tried to execute warrants on criminals in the city, endangering the lives of law-abiding citizens. In 2017, California passed a “sanctuary state” law limiting cooperation between local authorities and federal immigration officials.

So, if sanctuary cities like Oakland are “safer” and better, why don’t Schaaf and other liberal mayors do as President Trump suggested and take in more of them? Let’s bring the illegal aliens to Oakland and other sanctuary cities and let Schaaf welcome them.

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

The people who have to live with these non-English speaking, unskilled illegals are mostly black. They have to compete for the jobs, services, and their kids have to go to overcrowded schools and hospitals overrun by illegals. The schools in these Democrat-run sanctuary cities are already in terrible shape. The hospitals are awful. The infrastructure in these cities is already collapsing, and sanctuary city policies are only making things worse.

Criminal violence is already out of control. Police are already undermanned an outgunned, and now they want to add thousands of illegal aliens – some of whom already have gang ties and are criminals. This is a bad situation. It’s also creating an even bigger war between blacks and Hispanics. It will further stress our law enforcement and city services – it’s a powder keg waiting to explode, but maybe this is what the left wants: to stress the system to the point where lawlessness and chaos consumes our cities. I wouldn’t put it past the children of the lie – they are wicked and they’ll do anything to usher in socialism.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, an Obama devotee and open-borders mayor, said in a statement, “We would welcome these migrants with open arms.”

While Rahm has been welcoming illegals, thousands of black Americans are fleeing Chicago each year because of the high cost of living and to escape the gang violence. Chicago’s black population is on track to shrink to 665,000 by 2030 – down from a peak of about 1.2 million, according to the Urban Institute. Hispanics immigrants (legal and illegal) are replacing blacks.

According to a new report from the University of Illinois at Chicago titled “Corruption in Chicago and Illinois,” the Windy City ranked as the most corrupt big cities in the nation. Chicago recently elected Lori Lightfoot as mayor, another no-good liberal Democrat. This corruption was front and center in the way the city and state mishandled the Jussie Smollett racial hoax.

Democrats Libby Schaaf and Rahm Emanuel welcome illegals as long as they don’t have to live next to them, their kids don’t have to school with them, and they don’t have to use the same hospitals and services.

For Democrats, it’s all about buying future votes. Democrats in the New York State Assembly recently voted down a bill that would have allowed hundreds of thousands of dollars in college tuition aid to family members of Gold Star families after passing a measure earlier last week to give $27 million in the same benefits to illegal immigrants. What a shame!

It’s time for these Democratic mayors to put up or shut up. Let these sanctuary mayors and cities absorb these illegals, and let’s see how they fare.

Bill Lockwood: Reparations and the Failure of Affirmative Action

by Bill Lockwood

All recent talk coming from the Democrats is about current “reparations” to black Americans for yesteryear’s slavery. White America must begin paying financial compensation for sins of history. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced a bill this week to form a commission to recommend “reparations for slavery.” Booker says this could solve the “persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country. It will bring together the vest minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed.”

Beto O’Rourke was against “reparations” when he was in Congress but has switcherooed to favor Booker’s commission. Whatever is vogue is what the Democrats support. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, another Texas Democrat, has supported reparations as well. Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Elizabeth Warren both cannot get on the bandwagon quickly enough.

Reparation talk is growing elsewhere. Black Princeton Seminary students in New Jersey are asking their school for reparations for slavery due to the fact that the early founders and faculty of the University had ties to slavery. A group of black seminarians have collected more than 400 signatures in an online petition calling on the Princeton to “make amends” by setting aside $5.3 million annually—15% of what the seminary uses from the school’s endowment for its operating expenses—to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program (Selwyn Duke, in The New American, 3.27.19).

What Shall We Say to These Things?

This is all a tacit admission that Reparations Do Not Work to the End for Which They are Intended. Why?  Booker says reparations will “right the economic scales of past harms.” This is exactly, almost word for word, the reason Affirmative Action was instituted in America in the first place.

Consider Pres. Lyndon Johnson, in a commencement address at Howard University in 1965 on affirmative action, who opined this way about Affirmative Action:

You do not wipe away the scars of centuries by saying, ‘now, you are free to go where you want, do as you desire, and choose the leaders you please.’ You do not take a man who for years has been hobbled by chains, liberate him, bring him to the starting line of a race, saying, ‘you are free to compete with all the others,’ and still justly believe you have been completely fair …This is the next and more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just freedom but opportunity—not just legal equity but human ability—not just equality as a right and a theory, but equality as a fact and as a result.

We were going to have equality “as a fact and as a result” provided by Big Brother Government in its meddlesome Affirmative Action programs. Compensate for past discrimination and persecution is the “reason.” The original purpose for Affirmative Action in the United States was to “pressure institutions into compliance” with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

According to the clintonwhitehouse2.archives.gov website,

The current scope of affirmative action programs is best understood as an outgrowth and continuation of our national effort to remedy subjugation of racial and ethnic minorities and of women — subjugation in place at our nation’s founding and still the law of the land within the lifetime of “baby-boomers.

Apparently, the government remedy did not take. Instead of a “remedy” affirmative action has exacerbated the racial problem, so much that Democrats are seeking again to “right the economic scales” in America—exactly what Affirmative Action was supposed to do—by government fiat.

Questions

There are a few hundred questions we need answered by the Booker’s, Harris’, Warren’s and O’Rourke’s of the world before “reparations” are underway. Just a sampling of those questions are these:

Since slavery is solely of the Democrat Party in America, why not make the DNC pay the reparations?

Since American Indians practiced slavery regularly, and photos exist of Indian tribes holding white captives as slaves, will whites receive payments as well? Will the government “shake down” the Indian tribes for their historical practice of slavery?

Since “slavery” is, by definition, for all practical purposes, the process by which one person is forcibly used to serve the purposes of another, how is it that modern-day forcible financial re-distribution (slavery) supposed to “right” slavery of the past? Will modern-day slavery via the tax code be repaired? What is the difference in principle between slavery to the government and slavery to a plantation owner?

Is Booker man-enough to note that the Koran teaches slavery and Muslims have practiced slavery throughout the centuries? Shall Muslims in America pay reparations for subjugating populations of Europeans in history? Will those that support Mohammed and the fact that he owned a black slave be forced to disown Mohammed? After all, those theological students at Princeton say that “Restitution is evidence of repentance.”

While thinking of Islam, since each and every black slave that was captured in Africa and sold to English slave-traders originated with Muslim slave-traders in Africa, will those who practice Islam be forced to pay reparation? After all, why target just a few Englishmen involved in slavery? Why not cast a wider net for reparations?

Since “righting past wrongs” is Booker’s game, what about abortion? Since abortion is the taking of innocent life, will the Democrat legislation force those who have aborted children to pay into a general fund for usage by others? Or, is our grievance against sin selective? Only some sins need apply.

And since abortion rates are higher in black communities than in white communities does this mean that more blacks will be paying than whites? Or, is abortion off-the-table as far as discussion is concerned?

Since the black Princeton Theology students tell us that “reparation is evidence of repentance” do they also teach that it is the government’s job to force repentance among the population? Is asking for free-will contributions the same as a government shakedown?

Ezekiel 18

While on theology students, perhaps a biblical passage will help us. Ezekiel 18.

Israelites in Babylonian captivity were self-righteous. They were disposed to shift blame off of themselves and lay it partly upon their fathers and partly upon God. Shifting blame to some other quarter that we might be just and God unjust is still prevalent among men!

Their Illusion is that they were suffering, not for their own sins, but the transgressions of their fathers. Their proverbial statement to that effect was, “The fathers have eaten sour grapes and set the children’s teeth on edge.” An old proverb repeated by the modern-day Democrat-Socialist. The prophet dispels this idea in the balance of the chapter.

Ezekiel lays out four cases to illustrate Divine Justice. Number one: the righteous man (v. 5-9) is just (dealings with others) and will live. Number two: a wicked son of a righteous man (v. 10-13). The father will not be held accountable for the sin of the son. Number three: a righteous son of a wicked father (v. 14-18). Here is where liberal idea of reparation rests. Must wickedness of past generations be paid today? The inspired prophet’s answer: NO. The principle is: The soul that sins, IT is the one that shall die! (v. 2).

Number four: Ezekiel has one more scenario (v 21-24). The wicked AND the righteous. If the wicked repents, then he is forgiven. If the righteous apostatizes, he is lost. This involves a change, not in the character of one generation to the next, but in the character of the individual. Such is repentance. Princeton Theology students and the Cory Booker’s of the world notwithstanding.

JESSE LEE PETERSON: SOCIALISM DESTROYED BLACK AMERICA

Jesse Lee Peterson blasts loathsome hypocrisy of Dems

by Jesse Lee Peterson

President Donald Trump delivered a powerful speech at CPAC 2019 (Conservative Political Action Conference) in defense of freedom and promised that America will never be a socialist country.

Donald Trump spoke for more than two hours at CPAC to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters. Trump criticized the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, calling it a “witch hunt.” He blasted Democrats as socialists, and warned about a government takeover of health care. He said Democrats will lose badly in 2020 because they are running on a socialist platform that will turn off most American voters. He is absolutely right!

The president also addressed violence against his supporters and brought Hayden Williams on stage (the conservative activist who was savagely attacked at Berkeley). Trump vowed to sign an executive order that would withhold federal funds from schools that fail to protect free speech on campus. There are hundreds of instances where conservatives have been attacked by leftists, and this attention is much needed.

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

Trump warned the audience of a “socialist nightmare,” criticizing the “Green New Deal” environmental proposals supported by Democratic politicians such as freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and most of the current 2020 presidential candidates, and mocking the potential of wind power as a source of clean energy. In his speech Trump acted out a scene of man looking outside, saying, “Darling, is the wind blowing today? I’d like to watch television, darling.” The Green New Deal seeks to drastically overhaul the country’s energy and economic policy and cost trillions of dollars.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders kicked off his 2020 campaign on the Brooklyn College campus. The self-described Democratic Socialist made his announcement surrounded by disgruntled Millennials and socialist agitators.

Sanders talked about “revolution,” “economic justice” and “prison-industrial complex.” He called for “Medicare for all,” a $15 minimum wage and tuition-free public college. Bernie promoted class warfare by attacking big corporations like General Motors and Netflix, and vilified Donald Trump (the Great White Hope!).

Bernie wants to confiscate wealth from the rich to give to the “poor.” Socialist Democrats have no problem being generous with other people’s money, but studies show conservatives are far more generous and charitable than liberals.

As my friend Dennis Prager recently said on Fox News, socialism doesn’t create wealth, it spends what Capitalism creates – and it always deprives people of their freedom by giving more and more power to government.

Bernie Sanders is a multi-millionaire and a closet Marxist. He has been in Congress for 29 years, and has spent very little time, if any, working in the private sector – he got rich growing the government. Yet, 2020 Democrat hopefuls Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and others have adopted his extreme platform. And despite their constant attacks on the “rich,” Elizabeth Warren (Pocahontas) is part of the top 1 percent, and Kamala Harris is a millionaire. These Democrats are hypocrites, and the freshman Democrats are tyrannical and lawless.

At a recent closed-door meeting of House Democrats, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-New York), said some of her colleagues could find themselves “on a list” of primary election targets, after they voted for a Republican amendment requiring that undocumented immigrants who try to buy guns be reported to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Liberal commentator Van Jones is being attacked as a “sell out” for praising conservatives for their support of criminal justice reform during a panel discussion at CPAC. The Democratic Party and its supporters have no tolerance for anyone who utters truth or strays from their socialist talking points.

Democrats used blacks to test socialism, and the results have been catastrophic. Liberal Democrat policies wiped out two-parent black families across the U.S. by encouraging welfare and dependency on government programs. For the past 60 years, the federal government encouraged and rewarded single black female-headed households, and it became the daddy and provider. Today, 77.3 percent of black babies are now born out of wedlock, and most black men are nothing more than sperm donors.

Democrats tricked blacks into trading their dignity and work ethic for government handouts. In 2019, black Americans are not suffering because of alleged “racism.” They’re suffering because they lack good parents and they don’t have moral character.

Bernie Sanders and the rest of the 2020 Democrat hopefuls are trying to seduce and trick the American people using the same failed socialist agenda that destroyed blacks.

Donald Trump has done a tremendous job as president. The president has been terrific on trade, national security and domestic policy. The U.S. economy is booming, and black and Hispanic unemployment rates are at an all-time low.

It was a mistake to allow Democrats back in power in 2018. They have openly adopted socialism as the cornerstone of their party’s platform for 2020. They used socialist policies to destroy the black community, and if we allow it to spread, they will use it to bankrupt and destroy the country. We need to rally behind the president to ensure that never happens.

TOM DEWEESE: Green New Deal Reveals the Naked Truth of Agenda 21

by Tom DeWeese

Sometimes if you fight hard enough and refuse to back down, no matter the odds, your truth is vindicated and prevails!

For twenty years I have been labeled a conspiracy theorist, scaremonger, extremist, dangerous, nut case. I’ve been denied access to stages, major news programs, and awarded tin foil hats. All because I have worked to expose Agenda 21 and its policy of sustainable development as a danger to our property rights, economic system, and culture of freedom.

From its inception in 1992 at the United Nation’s Earth Summit, 50,000 delegates, heads of state, diplomats and Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) hailed Agenda 21 as the “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society.” The 350-page, 40 chapter, Agenda 21 document was quite detailed and explicit in its purpose and goals.  They warned us that the reorganization would be dictated through all-encompassing policies affecting every aspect of our lives, using environmental protection simply as the excuse to pull at our emotions and get us to voluntarily surrender our liberties.

Section I details “Social and Economic Dimensions” of the plan, including redistribution of wealth to eradicate poverty, maintain health through vaccinations and modern medicine, and population control.

To introduce the plan, the Earth Summit Chairman, Maurice Strong boldly proclaimed, “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.” Of course, according to the plan, if it’s not “sustainable” it must be stopped.

In support of the plan, David Brower of the Sierra Club (one of the NGO authors of the agenda) said, “Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license.” Leading environmental groups advocated that the Earth could only support a maximum of one billion people, leading famed Dr. Jacques Cousteau to declare, “In order to stabilize world populations, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day.”

Section II provides the “Conservation and Management of Resources for Development” by outlining how environmental protection was to be the main weapon, including global protection of the atmosphere, land, mountains, oceans, and fresh waters – all under the control of the United Nations.

To achieve such global control to save the planet, it is necessary to eliminate national sovereignty and independent nations. Eliminating national borders quickly led to the excuse for openly allowing the “natural migration” of peoples. The UN Commission on Global Governance clearly outlined the goal for global control stating, “The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable, indeed a sacred principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.” That pretty much explains why the supporters of such a goal go a little off the rails when a presidential candidate makes his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

The main weapon for the Agenda was the threat of Environmental Armageddon, particularly manifested through the charge of man-made global warming, later to conveniently become “climate change.” It didn’t matter if true science refused to cooperate in this scheme as actual global temperatures really are not rising and there continues to be no evidence of any man-made affect on the climate. Truth hasn’t been important to the scare mongers. Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation said, “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” To further drive home their complete lack of concern for truth, Paul Watson of Green Peace declared, “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”

So in their zealotry to enforce the grand agenda, social justice became the “moral force” over the rule of law as free enterprise, private property, rural communities and individual consumption habits became the targets, labeled as racist and a social injustice. Such established institutions and free market economics were seen as obstructions to the plan, as were traditional family units, religion, and those who were able to live independently in rural areas.

Finally, Agenda 21 was summed up in supporting documents this way: “Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced. It requires a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals, and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”

Of course, such harsh terms had to be hidden from the American people if the plan was to be successfully imposed. They called it a “suggestion” for “voluntary” action –  just in case a nation or community wanted to do something positive for mankind! However, while using such innocent-sounding language, the Agenda 21 shock troops lost no time pushing it into government policy. In 1992, just after its introduction at the Earth Summit, Nancy Pelosi introduced a resolution of support for the plan into Congress. It’s interesting to note that she boldly called it a “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society.” In 1993, new President, Bill Clinton ordered the establishment of the President’s Council for Sustainable Development, with the express purpose of enforcing the Agenda 21 blueprint into nearly every agency of the federal government to assure it became the law of the land. Then the American Planning Association issued a newsletter in 1994, supporting Agenda 21’s ideas as a “comprehensive blueprint” for local planning. So much for a voluntary idea!

However, as we, the opponents started to gain some ground in exposing its true purpose and citizens began to storm city halls protesting local implementation, suddenly the once proud proponents lost their collective memories about Agenda 21. Never heard of it! “There are no blue-helmeted troops at city hall,” said one proponent, meaning policies being used to impose it were not UN driven, but just “local, local, local”. “Oh, you mean that innocuous 20 year-old document that has no enforcement capability? This isn’t that!” These were the excuses that rained down on us from the planners, NGOs and government agents as they scrambled to hide their true intentions.

I was attacked on the front page of the New York Times Sunday paper under the headline, “Activists Fight Green Projects, Seeing U.N. Plot.” The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) produced four separate reports on my efforts to stop it, calling our efforts an “Antigovernment Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory.” The Atlantic magazine ran a story entitled, “Is the UN Using Bike Paths to Achieve World Domination?” Attack articles appeared in the Washington PostEsquire magazine, Wingnut WatchMother Jones, and Tree Hugger.com to name a few. All focused on labeling our opposition as tin-foil-hat-wearing nut jobs. Meanwhile, an alarmed American Planning Association (APA) created an “Agenda 21: Myths and Facts page on its web site to supposedly counter our claims. APA then organized a “Boot Camp” to retrain its planners to deal with us, using a “Glossary for the Public,” teaching them new ways to talk about planning. Said the opening line of the Glossary, “Given the heightened scrutiny of planners by some members of the public, what is said – or not said – is especially important in building support for planning.” The Glossary went on to list words not to use like “Public Visioning,” “Stakeholders,” “Density,” and “Smart Growth,” because such words make the “Critics see red”.

Purchase Tom’s latest book “Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals”.

Local elected officials, backed by NGO groups and planners, began to deride local activists – sometimes denying them access to speak at public meetings, telling them that Agenda 21 conspiracy theory has “been debunked”. Most recently an irate city councilman answered a citizen who claimed local planning was part of Agenda 21 by saying “this is what’s “trending.” So, of course, if everyone is doing it is must be right!

Such has been our fight to stop this assault on our culture and Constitutional rights.

Over the years, since the introduction of Agenda 21 in 1992, the United Nations has created several companion updates to the original documents. This practice serves two purposes. One is to provide more detail on how the plan is to be implemented. The second is to excite its global activists with a new rallying cry. In 2000, the UN held the Millennium Summit, launching the Millennium Project featuring eight goals for global sustainability to be reached by 2015. Then, when those goals were not achieved, the UN held another summit in New York City in September of 2015, this time outlining 17 goals to be reached by 2030. This document became known as the 2030 Agenda, containing the exact same goals as were first outlined in Agenda 21in 1992, and then again in 2000, only with each new incarnation offering more explicit direction for completion.

Enter the Green New Deal, representing the boldest tactic yet. The origins and the purpose of the Green New Deal couldn’t be more transparent. The forces behind Agenda 21 and its goal of reorganizing human society have become both impatient and scared. Impatient that 27 years after Agenda 21 was introduced, and after hundreds of meetings, planning sessions, massive propaganda, and billions of dollars spent, the plan still is not fully in place. Scared because people around the world are starting to learn its true purpose and opposition is beginning to grow.

So the forces behind the Agenda have boldly thrown off their cloaking devices and their innocent sounding arguments that they just want to protect the environment and make a better life for us all. Instead, they are now openly revealing that their goal is socialism and global control, just as I’ve been warning about for these past twenty years. Now they are determined to take congressional action to finally make it the law of the land.

Take a good look, those of you who have heard my warnings about Agenda 21 over the years. Do you see the plan I have warned about being fully in place in this Green New Deal?

  • I warned that Agenda 21 would control every aspect of our lives, including how and were we live, the jobs we have, the mode of transportation available to us, and even what we eat. The Green New Deal is a tax on everything we do, make, wear, eat, drink, drive, import, export and even breathe.
  • In opposing Smart Growth plans in your local community, I said the main goal was to eliminate cars, to be replaced with bikes, walking, and light rail trains. The Green New Deal calls for the elimination of the internal combustion engine. Stay alert. The next step will be to put a ban on the sale of new combustion engines by a specific date and then limiting the number of new vehicles to be sold. Bans on commercial truck shipping will follow. Then they will turn to airplanes, reducing their use. Always higher and higher taxes will be used to get the public to “voluntarily” reduce their use of such personal transportation choices. That’s how it works, slowly but steadily towards the goal.
  • I warned that under Smart Growth programs now taking over every city in the nation that single-family homes are a target for elimination, to be replaced by high-rise stack and pack apartments in the name of reducing energy use. That will include curfews on carbon heating systems, mandating they be turned off during certain hours. Heating oil devises will become illegal. Gradually, energy use of any kind will be continually reduced. The Green New Deal calls for government control of every single home, office and factory to tear down or retrofit them to comply with massive environmental energy regulations.
  • I warned that Agenda 21 Sustainable policy sought to drive those in rural areas off the farms and into the cities where they could be better controlled. Those in the cities will be ordered to convert their gardens into food producers. Most recently I warned that the beef industry is a direct target for elimination. It will start with mandatory decreases in meat consumption until it disappears form our daily diet. The consumption of dairy will follow. Since the revelation of the Green New Deal the national debate is now over cattle emissions of methane and the drive to eliminate them from the planet. Controlling what we eat is a major part of the Green New Deal.
  • I warned that part of the plan for Agenda 2030 was “Zero Economic Growth.” The Green New Deal calls for a massive welfare plan where no one earns more than anyone else. Incentive to get ahead is dead. New inventions would disrupt their plan for a well-organized, controlled society. So, where will jobs come from after we have banned most manufacturing, shut down most stores, stopped single-family home construction, closed the airline industry, and severely regulated farms and the entire food industry? This is their answer to the hated free markets and individual choice.

The Green New Deal will destroy the very concept of our Constitutional Republic, eliminating private property, locally elected representative government, free markets and individual freedom. All decisions in our lives will be made for us by the government – just to protect the environment of course. They haven’t forgotten how well that scheme works to keep the masses under control.

Though the label “Green New Deal” has been passing around globalist circles for a while, it’s interesting that its leaders have now handed it to a naïve, inexperienced little girl from New York who suddenly found herself rise from bartending to a national media sensation, almost over nigh. That doesn’t just happen and there is no miracle here. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a created product. They probably needed her inexperienced enthusiasm to deliver the Green New Deal because no established politician would touch it. Now that it’s been introduced and she is set up to take the heat, the gates have swung open allowing forty-five members of Congress to co-sponsor it in the House of Representatives as established Senator Ed. Markey (D-MA) has sponsored it in the Senate. That doesn’t just happen either. Nothing has been left to chance.

Behind the sudden excitement and rush to support it are three radical groups each having direct ties to George Soros, including the Sunrise Movement – which markets itself as an “army of young people” seeking to make climate change a major priority.   Justice Democrats – which finds and recruits progressive candidates, and New Consensus – organized to change how we think about issues. Leaders of these groups have connections with other Soros-backed movements including Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street. According to The New Yorker magazine, the plan was written over a single weekend in December, 2018. Ocasio-Cortez was included in the effort, chosen to introduce it. This may be the single reason why she was able to appear out of nowhere to become the new darling of the radical left.

So there you have it — Agenda 21, the Millennium Project, Agenda 2030, the Green New Deal. Progress in the world of Progressives! They warned us from the beginning that their plan was the “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society”. And so it is to be the total destruction of our way of life.

To all of those elected officials, local, state and federal, who have smirked at we who have tried to sound the alarm, look around you now, hot shots! You have denied, ignored, and yet, helped put these very plans into place. Are you prepared to accept what you have done? Will you allow your own homes and offices to be torn down – or will you be exempt as part of the elite or just useful idiots? Will you have to give up your car and ride your bike to work? Or is that just for we peasants?

Over these years you have listened to the Sierra Club, the Nature Conservancy, the World Wildlife Fund, ICLEI, the American Planning Association, and many more, as they assured you their plans were just environmental protection, just good policy for future generations. They have been lying to you to fulfill their own agenda!  Well, now the truth is right in front of you. There is no question of who and what is behind this. And no doubt as to what the final result will be.

Now, our elected leaders have to ask real questions. As the Green New Deal is implemented, and all energy except worthless, unworkable wind and solar are put into place, are you ready for the energy curfews that you will be forced to impose, perhaps each night as the sun fades, forcing factories, restaurants, hospitals, and stores to close at dusk? How about all those folks forced to live in the stack and pack high-rises when the elevators don’t operate? What if they have an emergency?

How much energy will it take to rebuild those buildings that must be destroyed or retrofitted to maker them environmentally correct for your brave new world? Where will it come from after you have banned and destroyed all the workable sources of real energy? What are you counting on to provide you with food, shelter, and the ability to travel so you can continue to push this poison? Because – this is what’s trending — now! And how is it going to be financed when the entire economy crashes under its weight? Is it really the future you want for you, your family, and your constituents who elected you?

Every industry under attack by this lunacy should now join our efforts to stop it.  Cattlemen, farmers, airlines, the auto industry, realtors, tourist industry, and many more, all will be put out of business – all should now take bold action to immediately kill this plan before it kills your industry. Stomp it so deeply into the ground that no politician will ever dare think about resurrecting it.

For years I’ve watched politicians smirk, roll their eyes, and sigh whenever the words Agenda 21 were uttered. As George Orwell said, “The further a society drifts from the truth the more it will hate those who speak it”. Today I stand vindicated in my warnings of where Agenda 21 was truly headed, because it’s not longer me having to reveal the threat. They are telling you themselves. Here’s the naked truth – Socialism is for the stupid. The Green New Deal is pure Socialism. How far its perpetrators get in enforcing it depends entirely on how hard you are willing to fight for freedom. Kill it now or watch it die.

Jesse Lee Peterson: LET’S DECLARE MAXINE WATERS AND DEMOCRATS CRAZY

Jesse Lee Peterson slams politicos more concerned about welfare of illegal aliens

by Jesse Lee Peterson

MoveOn.org and other left-wing agitators have planned demonstrations across the U.S. for Presidents Day in response to Donald Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency for border wall funding.

“Donald Trump has declared a #FakeNationalEmergency – an illegal power grab from an unhinged man to push his racist, dangerous policies,” MoveOn.org states on its site.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), “The Wicked Witch of The West” with the low IQ, went on MSNBC and called on Americans to protest across the country to send President Trump a message that his declaration of a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border is “fake.”

As President Trump predicted, Democrats have become unhinged by his move to fund the border wall. In addition to their protests, Democrats have filed lawsuits to slow or block attempt to allocate funds towards a border wall by challenging the president’s declaration of an emergency.

Trump did everything possible to work with Democrats before declaring an emergency. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., refused to negotiate in good faith, and Democrats left the president no choice.

The Constitution gives Congress sole authority for appropriating funds when it passes budgets. But Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1976, giving the president vast powers in the event of a national emergency. The declaration will allow the president to divert billions of dollars of federal money towards the wall. The White House said it has identified up to $8.1 billion, including over $6 billion from the Pentagon, that will be available to fund the border wall now that the emergency is declared.

Democratic Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama – along with Republican Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush – have declared national emergencies prior to Trump’s declaration.

Democrats are insane, evil or both. No rational person or group would knowingly encourage the invasion of their homeland. Maxine Waters and Democrats opposed to the border wall are playing politics with the lives of the American people, and they pose a serious threat to our national security.

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

Waters called the president’s national emergency declaration “fake.” The only thing fake is her concern for the black Americans who live in her district. Maxine Waters has been in Congress for 28 years. Most of her district is crime-ridden, impoverished and overrun by illegal aliens. Waters doesn’t live in the district she represents, so she doesn’t understand the plight of her constituents. She lives in a multi-million-dollar mansion in a very affluent part of Los Angeles.

Waters’ 43rd Congressional District consists of 697,985 residents. It ranks 37th out of 436 other congressional districts in the U.S. as to the number of foreign-born residents; as of 2012, that number stood at 31.6 percent of a population. Of those, 36.6 percent were categorized as white and 23.9 percent were categorized as black. Of these, 46.9 percent were counted as Hispanic or Latino. Therefore, those counted as white – not Hispanic or Latino – represented 14.4 percent of the district. No wonder she’s advocating for illegal aliens!

The illegal alien population in California is estimated at 3 million. Illegal aliens create an enormous financial burden on Californian residents. The annual expenditure of state and local tax dollars on services for illegal aliens is $25.3 billion. Nearly half of those expenditures ($12.3 billion) result from the costs of K-12 education for the children of illegal aliens. According to the Federation For American Immigration Reform (FAIR)), billions more are spent on public assistance services, administration of justice functions, and general governmental services for illegals.

According to a Pew Research Center study, there were 12.0 million immigrants from Mexico living in the U.S. in 2016 (just from Mexico alone!).

In addition to the financial burden, the drugs and crime flooding across the southern border is wreaking havoc on American towns and cities. Every day, 130 Americans die due to opioid overdoses. Ninety percent of the heroin that reaches America comes through Mexico. Almost 25 percent of federal inmates are illegal aliens.

Maxine Waters and Democrats are more concerned about the welfare of illegal aliens than they are about American citizens. The Democrats’ support for open borders and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is threatening our national security and allowing dangerous criminals and drugs to flood across the border.

Border security is the most important issue facing our nation. The mass invasion by illegal aliens and the crime and drugs that follow hurts all Americans. It’s especially devastating to low-income Americans who are forced to compete for jobs, education and healthcare services with illegal aliens. Inner city blacks and those living in border states are hurt first and foremost.

Maxine Waters and the Democrats are out of touch with the American people. Waters doesn’t care about blacks – she only cares about power. The Wicked Witch of The West must go!

Bill Lockwood: Democrats: The Anti-God Party of Karl Marx?

by Bill Lockwood

Several recent agendas pushed by the Democrat Party indicate that they are not only the anti-America Party which pushes for Open Borders and a larger socialist confiscation/redistribution program than already exists, but are aggressively adversarial when it comes to belief in God. From chiding judicial nominees who believe in God to removing ‘so help me God’ from oaths—the Democrat Party is adopting the mantle of atheism.

Sen. Cory Booker, for example, recently asked judicial nominee Neomi Rao if she believed that same-sex relationships were immoral. Rao has been nominated to be on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She would replace Brett Kavanaugh if confirmed.

Booker pressed her. “So you’re not willing to say here … whether you believe it is sinful for two men to be married, you’re not willing to comment on that?”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) asked Amy Coney Barrett, “Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?” in a 2017 hearing. Barret was then a nominee for the 7th Circuit Court. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said to Barrett in that same hearing: “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.

Brian Buescher was nominated to be on a district court in Nebraska. His membership in the Catholic Knights of Columbus was something that brought out the hostility of Democrat Senators Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Kamala Harris (D-CA). The thought patterns of these prominent Democrats is obviously that any sort of Christian belief is a hindrance to public service.

Removing “So Help You God”

Next, as reported by The Hill, the newly-minted Democrat-led House Committee on Natural Resources is seeking to have the words “so help you God” removed from the oath cited by witnesses who testify before the panel. The proposal was originally obtained by Fox News.

The rules proposal states that witnesses that come before the committee during its hearings would be administered the following oath: ‘Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth [so help you God]? According to Fox News, the “so help you God” phrasing is in brackets in red in the draft and indicates that the words are slated for removal.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) probably summarized this Democrat-led move with the best critique: “It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of the first acts in the majority…They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

Art. VI. Sec. 3–No Religious Test

Some may suppose that these godless Democrats are in line with the Constitution at Art. VI, sec. 3 which forbids a “religious test” for public officers in government. But this is ignorant of the meaning of the Constitution.

Article VI of the Constitution gives Americans several General Provisions. One of them involves an “Official Oath” that is to be required of Senators and Representatives and all “executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states.” They shall be “bound by oath or affirmation to support this Constitution, but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

First, there is to be an ‘oath’ of office. What seems to have escaped the modernist anti-theism approach is that the very nature of an oath assumes that the one giving that oath believes in God. By definition an oath is a solemn “calling upon God to witness the truth of what one says.” In effect it is to say: If I am not telling the truth then I call upon God to strike me down or to punish me

This is why Washington, when taking the first oath of presidential office, added “so help me God.” In the Old Testament an oath was to be taken in God’s name for the same purpose. To “take the Lord’s name in vain” (Exod. 20:7) then, is making a profession in “God’s name” and failing to live up to that profession. Primarily, this involved a legal oath. By extension the command meant “You shall not use the name of God, either in oaths or in common discourse, lightly, rashly, irreverently, or unnecessarily, or without weighty or sufficient cause” (Matthew Henry).

Obviously, by the flippant and irreverent manner in which Americans misuse the name of God has muddied their thinking about Deity and the very nature of an oath. And none are more confused than the Democrats who press for an “oath” without realizing the nature of it.

Second, the oath is itself is a recognition of God. James Iredell, a Justice of the State Supreme Court of North Carolina (1751-1799), during the founding period, commented on Article VI in the following manner.

According to the modern definition of an oath, it is considered a ‘solemn appeal to the supreme being, for the truth of what is said, by a person who believes in the existence of a supreme being and in a future state of rewards and punishments according to that form which will bind his conscience most.’ It was long held that … none but Jews and Christians could take an oath; and heathens were altogether excluded…Men at length considered that there were many virtuous men in the world who had not had an opportunity of being instructed either in the Old or New Testament, who yet very sincerely believed in a supreme being, and in a future state of rewards and punishments…. Indeed, there are few people so grossly ignorant or barbarous as to have no religion at all.

We have reached the point at which the “barbarians” are now running the government from the Democrat side. Iredell explained further pertaining to the oath:

…it is only necessary to inquire if the person who is to take it [the oath] believes in a supreme being and in a future state of rewards and punishments. If he does, the oath is to be administered according to that form which it is supposed will bind his conscience most. It is, however, necessary that such a belief should be entertained, because otherwise there would be nothing to bind his conscience that could be relied on; since there are many cases where the terror of punishment in this world for perjury would not be dreaded.

Third, what then of the No Religious Test? Article VI also states that “there shall be no religious test.” Many of the colonies were established by groups of people who subscribed to certain tenets of various faiths—that is, branches of Protestantism (see Thomas Norton, The Constitution of the United States, 183-84). Their state oaths would automatically exclude at a state level those who had contrary views.

But when it came to the federal government these same delegates insisted that it had no jurisdiction over religious matters. They were particularly fearful that a “federal test might displace existing state test oaths and religious establishments” (David Barton, “A Godless Constitution?: A Response to Kramnick and Moore,” Wallbuilders.com). In other words, the framers believed that religion was a matter better left to individuals and to their respective state governments, not to the federal government. No religious test primarily referred to the various exclusive doctrinal tests at the state level and kept the federal government in a neutral position.

However, whether one believed in God or did not subscribe to general biblical principles was far from what was intended in Art. VI, sec. 3. The idea that America might one day become a “godless state” as the current Democrat Party embodies was not in the framer’s minds. As Richard Dobbs Spaight (1758-1802), a representative from North Carolina to the Constitutional Convention, put it: “I do not suppose an infidel or any such person will ever be chosen to any office unless the people themselves be of the same opinion.”

This is what makes the comments of the Cory Booker’s and Dianne Feinstein’s so distasteful. They are not even in a “neutral position.” Their anti-God agenda, which is reflected across the board in the Democratic Party, is open hostility against Christian principles. Little wonder then that the socialism of Karl Marx appeals to them. It begins upon an atheistic platform.

Jesse Lee Peterson: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ‘REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS’

Jesse Lee Peterson laments results of freedom without morality, explosion of evil

       by Jesse Lee Peterson

For almost 29 years, I’ve been speaking out against abortion. I’ve led protests outside Planned Parenthood abortion mills, spoken to people hurt by abortions on my radio show, and written articles to get the truth out.

Outside one abortion clinic, I pleaded with a teenager not to kill her child inside the womb. I even offered to take care of the child for her, with the help of my nonprofit organization, BOND. But it was already too late. A doctor had injected her with a saline solution that would kill her child. The doctor lied and said that the baby would not feel anything. For days she felt her child struggling and kicking for life inside her womb, before finally dying. To this day the young woman is traumatized with guilt.

The moral state of America has plunged over my lifetime – with the black community leading the way. Men have become increasingly weak, and women angry and out of control. Children grow up without any good examples. I’ve talked to Millennials and younger people who never saw a man of strong character while growing up. Instead, pathetic beta males kiss up to women, thinking they’re showing love and “equality” while bringing out the worst in the women. Today the female-dominated Democrat Party is the party of death.

In New York, the Democrat-majority government passed a new pro-abortion law allowing mothers to kill their unborn children up to the due date. Democrats dubbed it the “Reproductive Health Act,” declaring abortion a “fundamental right.” According to New York Right to Life, the Democrats’ idea of a mother’s “health” involves vague considerations of “age, economic, social and emotional factors.” In reality Democrats put personal convenience above a child’s life, ignoring the rights of the father, spoiling and lying to the mother, who later suffers. Democrats pretend that a human being inside the womb is not a “person” and should die if the mother “chooses.”

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

Have you ever wondered about the callousness of young black males killing people in America’s inner cities? In a rare honest moment, Hillary Clinton was actually right in the 1990s when she called these killers “super predators” with “no conscience, no empathy.” But consider that these communities are filled with mothers who commit abortions at a higher rate than anywhere in the country – discarding lives like trash. In New York City in recent years, more black babies were aborted than born! In 2009, 57 percent, and in 2012, 56 percent of black pregnancies in the city ended in abortion.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo loves abortion so much that he threatened to hold up the budget to get this new law passed, pretending it’s about “women’s rights.” Upon signing the bill, he celebrated by lighting up the “One World Trade Center” and other state landmarks in pink. In a city where 3,000 Americans died at the hands of Muslim terrorists in 2001, ten times that number – 31,328 black babies – died at the hands of black females and “doctors” in 2012.

Now under this new law, you don’t even have to be a doctor to perform an abortion. And if a pregnant woman suffers a miscarriage due to a violent assault, the criminal suspect will not be charged with killing the unborn child!

Male Democrats are like the anti-Trump. President Trump, an alpha male and man of God, pushes the government to do its primary job – to protect Americans from endless invasion by criminals. Andrew Cuomo, a weak beta male and son of Satan, celebrates his state killing the most vulnerable human beings with legalized murder. Blacks’ fallen messiah, Barack Hussein Obama, as a Senator voted to allow newborn children who survive a botched abortion to die on the medical table. If one of his daughters have sex out of wedlock, Barack wouldn’t want them “punished with a baby.” What an evil man!

Black female Democrat Andrea Stewart-Cousins, New York State Senate Majority Leader – Satan’s daughter – justified the bill by saying that “women’s health matters” and “women’s decisions matter.” But there is no such thing as “reproductive rights.” Human beings do not have a right to take the life of a fellow human being just because the child is hidden inside the womb.

You only hear Democrats talk about “freedom,” “rights” and “morality” when they want to defend doing wrong. But there is no freedom without morality. Satan wants to rule over human beings. Evil cannot rule over a moral people. It must demoralize people in order to control them. So evil drives people and entices them deeper and deeper into immorality.

Evil takes over because men – especially white men – have forsaken their role as moral leaders in the country. Just as whites have been cowed into silence, surrendering their power whenever someone calls them “racist,” so men give up authority when called “sexist.” The pro-life movement was once led by men. If we’re to win the country back for good, men must again take the helm on this issue and all issues. Abortion is not a “woman’s choice.” Abortion is murder – it’s evil. It’s time all decent men stand up and tell the truth.
