Bill Lockwood: Catholic High School Students Harassed by Indians & The Liberal Culture

by Bill Lockwood

Covington Catholic high school students waiting for buses to pick them up after participating in the annual March for Life last Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. were accosted by Indians led by Nathan Phillips.

Chanting an American Indian Movement religious song while beating a hand-held drum, Phillips approached the group of teens from Covington, KY, some of whom were wearing MAGA hats, and singling out one white boy, invaded his space continuing to chant. Other Indians joined Phillips as he confronted the teenagers. The boys appeared to remain calm and respectful.

The incident was recorded and has gone viral. Immediately, a firestorm of hatred was unleashed against the Catholic High School boys by the Main Stream Media, actors, and politicians for the boys’ supposed terrible treatment of “Native Americans.”

MSNBC announced that “Covington High School students wearing MAGA hats surrounded and taunted a Native American man as he performed the ‘American Indian Movement’ song about strength and courage.” How dare he!!

Reza Aslan tweeted: “An honest question: Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kids’?” So much for toning down the rhetoric in America. In another tweet he referred to the boys as a “frothing mass of MAGA youth.”

Bishop Talbert Swan, an American prelate of the Church of God in Christ, referred to the students as “racist little white punks in MAGA hats spawned from the seeds of white supremacists harassed, mocked and ridiculed a Native American elder.” Talbert seems to be trying to get in front of the liberal hate-fest and lead it.

Jack Morrissey wrote, “#MAGA kids go screaming, hats first, into the wood-chipper.” He illustrated it with a bloody image.

Kathy Griffin wrote, “Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them.” The insinuation here is frightening.

Alyssa Milano added, “Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself.”

Not to be outdone, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) intoned: “I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on. They seem to be poisoning young minds.”

Probably worse than the frenzied rush to judgment by public figures, The Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School hurriedly fell over themselves to apologize to the entire nation for the misconduct of the High School boys.

We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person. The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion. We know this incident has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement.

What is the Message?

The message is loud and clear to America. If you are a white conservative male, and especially if you profess Christianity—or if you are a Trump supporter: which is a double jeopardy against you; you are a cancer to society. You have always been the disease; you continue to be the plague that destroys the entire welfare of the planet. That is the plain bold unspoken assumption that moves our un-civilization at this point: there is nothing else that explains how our main stream culture so consistently ran with a patent lie and continues to spin the same negative news cycle on a daily basis.

This assumption also drives the ridiculous accusation of White Privilege that commentators continually chirp.

Some of the afore-mentioned comments about the Catholic boys from public figures are so grotesquely inappropriate as to stoke fires of rage across our nation.  These public figures, including the Congressman, are doing everything but putting guns into the hands of the ignorant minions and pulling the trigger.  To what other action could Kathy Griffith’s or Jack Morrissey’s tweets lead? And it only empowers these leftist haters that those who should bring some adult common-sense to the table—such as the Covington Diocese—are running backwards so quickly that they cannot see facts.

Actually, the Covington Diocese that apologized to Mr. Phillips regarding the incident appears to have been written before any incident occurred. The Diocese probably keeps this apology on hand for any future incident—because it will always be the white male that is blamed—regardless of facts. Any future altercation involving professing Christians will be the Christians’ fault. The cultural message here: “don’t embrace Christianity; we are sorry some people do.”

The same is true on Talbert Swan’s take. Since any controversy or dispute between a minority and a white person –especially if they are wearing a MAGA hat–will be the white person’s fault; don’t wear a MAGA hat. This is exactly what spineless mindless Rep. John Yarmuth said. Stop supporting Trump.

Further, as the Diocese and the Congressman shamed themselves by suggesting eliminating freedom of speech for conservatives, that in itself emboldened the communist-inspired American Indian Movement (AIM) to schedule a protest outside of Covington Catholic High School.  It was later moved to the Archdiocese of Covington.

Lest any question the communist connection of AIM, note that the communist publication People’s World (which began as Daily Worker in 1924), champions AIM as necessary to divide America. The SocailistWorker.org also glorifies the AIM as a socialist movement designed to destroy the United States. The usage of American Indians to this end is clear. From an article published just last August on its website:

As we see a wave of Indigenous resistance on a scale not seen since the 1970s, with the rise of Idle No More in Canada, fights against pipelines at Standing Rock and countless other locations and the #NativeLivesMatter movement, its vital for us to learn the radical history of AIM.

The best way to honor that history is to continue to resist and fight racism and discrimination while calling on the U.S. for reparations and self-determination — and to put forward a vision of socialism and Native liberation that ends the exploitation of the earth and the destruction of Indigenous land, and puts the fight against capitalism and settler-colonialism at the core of our resistance.

America is already in the throes of a civil war. Carnal weapons on a bloody field are not yet in use—but not because the left is not seeking to inspire it. The daily news cycle shows one thing: facts do not matter. Only communist ideology of divide and conquer does.

Bill Lockwood-The Value of History

by Bill Lockwood

George Santayana famously remarked, “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” History is an insightful teacher which helps guide us in the future. But if it is to be helpful and not harmful, we must have a realistic view of the past. For this reason, in order to turn societies on their heads, Karl Marx observed that “the first battlefield is to re-write history.” William Z. Foster, long-time head of the Communist Party in America, said “Our teachers must re-write history from the Marxian viewpoint.”

The reason that communists, progressives, and socialists wish to re-write history is perhaps best described by George Orwell. “Those who control the present, control the past; and those who control the past control the future.”

Distorting history has long been the stock-in-trade of all leftists in Western culture, from socialists, progressives, humanists, atheists, feminists, to Marxists and communists. Environmentalists paint grim pictures of Industrial America. Nativists wish to perpetuate the “indigenous” Indian culture on this continent in opposition to the Christian ideals of freedom and respect of human life enshrined in our Constitution.

Practically the only fact of history recited by schoolchildren from kindergarten to college is that America once had black slaves. The message inherent here is that the current generations should pay some kind of reparation.

This hatred of Americana is evident everywhere.  History classes regularly excoriate the founding generation for allowing slavery while completely ignoring the fact that not one slave was brought to America that did not originate with Muslim pirates who enslaved over 180 million Africans and over a million Europeans. Every single slave that came to America had been purchased from Muslim slave-traders. Not only is this a fact of history, but the Koran actually depicts Allah as teaching and demanding slavery. Yet, Islam is taught in a positive light in the same public schools. How can this be?

The point is: this lop-sided instruction demonstrates that our culture is seeking to make some value-judgments of these things. Cultural leaders are almost completely leftists who are controlling the past and thereby controlling the future. Scholars call this “historical negation”—an illegitimate distortion of the historical record.

Columnist Bill Federer (World Net Daily, 9.12.17) reminds us of the methodology of communism. (1) Say negative things about a country’s founders so people emotionally detach from them. (2) Then the people are moved into a neutral position where they don’t remember where they came from. (3) Then they can be easily brainwashed into the communist future planned for them.

This sums up well what is occurring in America. Consider the ways this distortion of history influences society.

First, a political influence. The beginning point of shaping the future is to shape the politics of the day. Once historical myths such as Indian Genocide by Americans is perpetuated, politics are influenced. The Welfare State as a means of “reparation” continues—regardless of the plain facts that joblessness, alcoholism, fatherless families, depression, suicide and other societal problems are sky-high on Indian reservations. But these are directly related to the fact that those who live on reservations have been on the government dole for over 100 years. Individuals have little or no dignity remaining.

Exactly the same issue regards admissions into colleges, universities and graduate schools. Minorities, whose ancestors, it is held, have been oppressed in one fashion or another, have preference over other potential students regardless of academic qualification. We do not have an even playing-field nor are we likely to see one as long as history continues to be misrepresented and abused.

Second, an ideological influence. Michael d’Ancona, a columnist for The Guardian and one of the UK’s liberal political journalists, stated that historical “negationists” “seem to have been given the task in [a] nation’s cultural development, the full significance of which is emerging only now: To redefine [national] status in a changing world.”

He was speaking of Great Britain and the desire by many Brits to exit the European Union. In other words, history is being used as a “social resource” that helps shape “national identity” as well as the culture and its “public memory.” “Through the study of history, people are imbued with a particular cultural identity; therefore, by negatively revising history, the negationist can craft a specific, ideological identity,” correctly notes an article on Wikipedia.

There is that ideological identity which speaks to who we are as a nation. History is being manipulated to re-shape our identity as an American nation under God.

Third, a religious influence. The Bible in the Old Testament continually admonished the Hebrews to “teach their children” not only the ways of the Lord (Dt. 6:4-6); but to constantly remind them of their own past.  When Joshua led the Israelites through the Jordan River safely to the western bank, he erected a monument with the specific instruction: “When your children ask in time to come, What means these stones?” they were to remind them of the event it commemorated. The entire 78th Psalm can be entitled: “Remember to Remember.” Don’t forget your history.

The psalm tells the Hebrews “do not forget.” Teach your children (v. 4); Do not forget the works of God (v. 7); the generations before us “forgot God’s doings” (v. 11); the generation of Jews that came out of Egypt ended up “not believing God” (v. 22); they “did not remember his hand when He redeemed them from the adversary” (v. 42). Because of their forgetfulness God delivered them to enemies (v. 61). The nation finally went to captivity and slavery in foreign nations.

Americans have the same forgetfulness. Our nation was established to be “A Christian Nation” precisely because of biblical and Christian principles that were engrafted into its legal fabric. For this reason and this reason alone we have enjoyed the greatest liberties that history has ever known in any society. But who reads history any more? Our forgetfulness of these fundamentals is turning us into a secular society that more closely resembles a socialistic state of Europe than the free nation of our forefathers.

Bill Lockwood: True Religion Results in Free-Will Giving: Not Jizya or Socialistic Forcible Taxation & Redistribution

by Bill Lockwood

By speaking of the reign of Solomon (970-931 B.C.), which was a foreshadowing of Christ’s kingdom, the Psalmist in chapter 72 depicts the expansive coming reign as being from “sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth” (72:8). During this reign of the Messiah the kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts (10).

Charles Spurgeon, the matchless commentator on the Psalms, observed at these verses,

…true religion leads to generous giving; we are not taxed in Christ’s dominions, but we are delighted to offer freely to him… This free-will offering is all Christ and his church desire; they want to forced levies and distraints [to seize by distress], let all men give of their own free will, kings as well as commoners; …

Free will offerings. This is the only giving known in the New Testament. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 9:7 “Let each man do according as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly, nor of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.” For this reason, Paul writes the letter and encourages by persuasion the churches to freely give. How beautiful is this precedent compared to other systems and man-made religions and systems!

Compare Giving to Islamic Jizya

Mohammed absolutely established that people of other religious persuasions must pay a poll tax to Muslims called the jizya. This was specifically that they might recognize they were inferior to Muslims. “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (Koran 9:29).

From the religionofpeace.com website:

Traditionally the collection of the jizya occurs at a ceremony that is designed to emphasize the subordinate status of the non-Muslim, where the subject is often struck in a humiliating fashion. M.A. Khan recounts that some Islamic clerics encouraged tax collectors to spit into the mouths of Hindu dhimmis during the process. He also quotes the popular Sufi teacher, Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi:

The honor of Islam lies in insulting the unbelief and the unbelievers (kafirs). One who respects kafirs dishonors Muslims… The real purpose of levying the Jizya on them is to humiliate them… [and] they remain terrified and trembling.

The jizya (or extortion) is one of the main cornerstones of the entire system of Islam. It institutionalizes forever the fact that, in the eyes of Muslims, non-Muslims have an inferior status in Muslim nations.

Another example is this that there is no way to live peaceably with Islam. Where it has dominated a culture, it has exacted a forcible toll on all non-Muslim peoples throughout the centuries—without exception. As it develops and engulfs a culture, Islam is designed to extinguish all Kafir civilizations. It is but a reflection of Mohammed himself who did not stop the conquering of Arabia until 100% of his demands were met.

This is just one example that demonstrates that Islam is not a religion of God, depending upon thoughtful reasoning and persuasion by argumentation; but a man-made totalitarian system relying solely upon force. When one comes out of the dank dungeon of Islam, and stands upon the mountaintops of Christianity, he is able to breathe the clean fresh air of a religion of the heart whose founder, Jesus Christ, never used violence or force to subjugate man, but died on the cross for the sins of the world.

Compare Giving to Socialism or Social Justice

Social Justice is not simply doing humanitarian acts of kindness as Buckley and Dobson suppose in Humanitarian Jesus: Social Justice and the Cross. “The Social Gospel asks Christians to be concerned and invested in the world around them” (p. 42). The authors suggest that the entire issue is about whether first to give a tract or a sandwich to those in need? (p. 43) This is ignorance as to what is social justice or socialism.

The great author and thinker Thomas Sowell explains: “Central to the concept of social justice is the notion that individuals are entitled to some share in the wealth produced by society, and irrespective of any individual contributions made or not made to the production of that wealth.” (A Conflict of Visions, 216)

But if all people in society are entitled to a share in that which I produce, how shall this be enforced? For this reason, socialism by definition implies the “expansion of the government domain to produce social results to which particular individuals are morally entitled.”

So states The National Association of Scholars. The term “social justice”, or socialism, they explain, is today understood to mean the “advocacy of egalitarian access to income through state-sponsored redistribution.”

But state-sponsored redistribution of my production begins with theft. Forcible removing from me of the fruits of my own production to give to others. This is not even remotely associated with the free-will giving taught by Christianity. If it is, why must there be a gigantic state to enforce it?

The French writer, Frederic Bastiat was correct therefore to explain socialism as plunder.

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. (Bastiat, The Law, p. 17).

That the above has already occurred in America is obvious. The evil is already upon us. A gigantic welfare state.  Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul summarizes it well.

From lower-income Americans who rely on food stamps, public housing, and other government programs, to middle-class Americans who live in homes they could not afford without assistance from federal agencies like Fannies Mae and Freddie Mac, to college students reliant on government-subsidized student loans, to senior citizens reliant on Social Security and Medicare, to billionaire CEOs whose companies rely on bailouts, subsidies, laws and regulations written to benefit politically-powerful businesses, and government contracts, most Americans are reliant on at least one federal program. (Dec. 31, 2018. Ronpaulinstitute.org)

Make no mistake. The Welfare State is nothing akin to the free-will giving of Christianity. Once again, instead of relying on force to confiscate and redistribute, the early church in the book of Acts willingly and freely gave of their possessions to assist others (Acts 2:43-47; 5:1-4). There is a world of difference between the Bible and the systems of man.

Alex Newman: Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents

Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents  “In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany.”

by Alex Newman

In what was seen by many observers as a throwback to evil ideas from Germany’s National Socialist (Nazi) days, German authorities helped publish a pamphlet advocating the re-education of children whose parents disagree with the regime’s official (and totally insane) ideology. Among the ideas that are verboten: opposition to “gender theory,” the “sexualization” of children, and mass immigration. So-called education must help combat “right-wing populism,” the document added.

Critics blasted the document’s instructions for using the language of children to detect thought crimes by parents. According to the brochure, parts of which were translated into English for an article by LifeSiteNews.com, parents with attitudes the state deems unacceptable can be sniffed out. In particular, they can be detected through the use of “seemingly harmless words which stem, however, from the jargon of the New (or Old) Right and which imply a deeply misanthropic attitude.”

The Orwellian propaganda also gives examples of warning signs that children may come from a “racist” or “right-wing” family. One involves a brother and sister who seem “especially obedient” and have no “so-called disciplinary problems.” The siblings in question also display “traditional gender roles,” with the sister wearing “dresses and braids” and learning “needlework” at home while the boy “is physically being strongly challenged and drilled.”

Another example involves a mother coming to school to complain that her son was dressed up as a girl and had his finger nails painted at school the previous day. The mother “declares that this has a bad influence upon her child; children should not be further confused; boys are boys, girls are girls.” Such attitudes are not allowed in today’s totalitarian Germany, it seems.

According to the document, “gender-stereotype parenting styles limit the manifold possibilities of children and [adversely] affect their development.” In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany. Another issue raised in the document is when parents complain about the “premature sexualization” of their children.

To deal with such situations, the document calls on the school brainwash the children with “diversity” propaganda and “children’s rights” ideology, holding that children have a right to be whatever gender they please. The teachers are also expected to “explain that gender diversity and tolerance are welcomed at the pre-school” and that children must be encouraged to “experiment with themselves.” The teachers are also supposed indoctrinate them with far-left political views.

The controversial brochure, which was funded by the German Ministry of Family Affairs and published by a tax-funded foundation, includes a lengthy forward by Family Affairs Minster Dr. Franziska Giffey. The dangerous left-wing extremist claims that children must be trained in a “democratic manner” and that education must be steered toward “children’s rights,” which is code from trampling on parental rights. Giffey also lashes out at the “significant increase of right-wing populist movements,” suggesting the regime’s indoctrination centers will be used shift the political system in a more totalitarian direction.

The tax-funded “foundation” that published the tax-funded brochure, known as the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, is led by a confessed spy for the barbaric Stasi, the infamous “intelligence” agency of the murderous communist regime that enslaved and terrorized East Germany. And so, more than a few critics highlighted the resemblance and parallels between the totalitarian ideology in the brochure and the the totalitarian ideology of the communist and National Socialist regimes in Germany.

Unfortunately, the disgusting hatred of families, faith, and freedom exhibited in the brochure is simply a local manifestation of a global movement — a totalitarian movement that has thoroughly infiltrated American education, too. But unlike in Germany, where Adolf Hitler’s ban on home education remains in place, American parents still have options. Now would be the time to exercise those options, before it is too late.

Jesse Lee Peterson: RASHIDA TLAIB IS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY

Jesse Lee Peterson rips new breed of ‘lowlife’ radicals out to destroy America

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Newly elected Congresswoman Mexico (D-Michigan), who publicly declared in a foul-mouthed tirade that the Democrats will impeach “motherf***er” Donald Trump doubled down and is refusing to apologize.

“I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe,” tweeted Tlaib.

President Trump said he found Tlaib’s comments “disgraceful” and thought she “dishonored herself” as well as “her family.”

House Republicans were furious over the comments, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., calling on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to act. But Pelosi downplayed Tlaib’s remarks by blaming Trump for the heated rhetoric in Washington.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, defended Rashida Tlaib’s profanity-laced pledge to impeach Trump, vowing to protect her fellow female Democrat and “sis” from what she claimed is “faux outrage” by Republicans.

“GOP lost entitlement to policing women’s behavior a long time ago. Next,” the self-avowed Democratic-Socialist said.

Rashida Tlaib is a Palestinian-American who ran unopposed and became one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress alongside Ilhan Omar, D-MN (a Somali-American elected in 2016). Democrats also elected Kyrsten Sinema, the first openly bi-sexual elected to the U.S. Senate. The newly elected Senator from Arizona refused to be sworn in on a Bible.

Rashida Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Kyrsten Sinema are a new breed of radical Democrats hell-bent on trying to destroy this president. Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez belong to the Democratic Socialists of America – an anti-American group that has no respect for the U.S. Constitution. These extremist Democrats are not interested in working with President Trump or Republicans to end the government shutdown and secure the southern border with Mexico. Their goal is to impeach this president and undermine the rule of law. They want bigger government, higher taxes, open borders, and they embrace radical Islamists and want to weaken the U.S. military. Their socialist agenda is evil, and it’s antithetical to everything that makes America the greatest and freest nation on this side of Heaven. We cannot allow them to succeed!

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

As reported by the Daily Wire, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar openly embraced anti-Semite and Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour on their first day in Congress. Just imagine the outcry from Democrats and the liberal media if Republicans embraced David Duke; Democrats would riot in the streets!

When one compares these Democrat miscreants to the new freshman Republican lawmakers taking office, the contrast is shocking.

Returning Republican Rep. Brian Mast of Florida – a combat veteran – recently welcomed two other combat veterans to the U.S. House of Representatives with a tweet that paid homage to the congressmen’s sacrifices during their military service. Mast’s tweet showed a photo of Mast with freshmen Republican lawmakers, Reps. Jim Baird of Indiana and Dan Crenshaw of Texas, on the first day of the 116th Congress.

Mast captioned the tweet: “5 eyes. 5 arms. 4 legs. All American. Welcome to Congress, @ElectJimBaird and @DanCrenshawTX.”

Crenshaw rose to national attention during the campaign season when Saturday Night Live mocked his eye patch (he lost an eye in 2012 when an IED exploded in Afghanistan where he was deployed). Baird served in the Vietnam War where he lost an arm. Mast also served in Afghanistan where he worked as a bomb disposal expert and lost both of his legs when an IED exploded. Between these three patriots, there are three Purple Hearts and four Bronze Stars earned. Amazing!

We’re lucky to have these men in office. If these patriots will risk life and limb for their country, it’s safe to assume that – unlike the Democrats – they will faithfully uphold their oath and won’t sell out their country and their constituents in the halls of Congress.

Democrats are still playing politics with our national security by refusing to fund border security. Only a blind and brainwashed person would vote for socialist Democrats who continue to “resist” this president at every turn. And Trump has vowed to keep the government shut down as long as necessary to get funding for the border wall.

The liberal mainstream media is more concerned about trash not being picked up at national parks than they are about border security. If they reported the truth about the crime and drugs pouring in across the southern border, we could prevent innocent Americans like Cpl. Ronil Singh from being killed. Singh, 33, was shot to death in the early hours of Dec. 26 after he pulled over a suspected drunk driver. The gunman fled, and a two-day-long manhunt led to the arrest of Gustavo Arriaga Perez, an illegal alien who was trying to flee to Mexico.

Newly elected Democrats are more radical than their predecessors. Lowlife Democrats like Rashida Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez have no respect for the rule of law. They abhor the constitution and the Judeo-Christian values that shaped this great nation. If we continue electing socialists, Muslims and pro-open border politicians who refuse to enforce our laws and protect our sovereignty – we will lose more American lives and eventually lose our country.

Is America in the Throes of a Soft-Communist Revolution?

by Bill Lockwood

Make no mistake about it. We are at war. We do not want it, but it is forced upon freedom-lovers in America. The assault is led by the Democrat Party which despises liberty under law. Though there is not the force of military tactics running the streets–thuggery, riotous behavior, and “popular revolts” are becoming common scenes—even in the Senate Chambers where Judge Brett Kavanaugh is under diabolical attack.

When people disobey the laws with which they disagree they break the foundations of all law. If this atrocity was being committed by a few lawless gangs of harmless onlookers, that would be one thing. This charge is being led by leaders of the Democrat Party itself, such as Maxine Waters, who regularly encourages flocks of rabble-rousers to jostle conservative members of Congress as well as Trump Administration officials in public places. Flouting defiance instead of working through the established Constitutional system is the modus operandi of all communists.

Former President Obama routinely excused and encouraged black hordes to roam the streets of Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri. They need to “express their displeasure”, was the Left’s excuse. Bands of students motivated by socialist and communist-professors created havoc from California to Oregon destroying private property. Smashing windows and burning cars has become a common scene.

Regarding the lawless immigration which has encouraged up to 20 million illegal aliens into our country, once more the Democrat Party mobilizes masses to “protest” incarceration and “separation of families” at the border. Again, preferring mob action carrying placards rather than operating through the established system of law-makers, Democrats and socialists join hands in an effort to increase the Hispanic population.

It makes no difference to Democrats that lawlessness increases exponentially with uncontrolled immigration or that American citizens may live in fear of being victimized–as long as more Democratic voters can come into our nation. So is apparently the position of “Beto” O’Rourke, the Democrat running against constitutionalist Ted Cruz. To O’Rourke, 20 million illegals being supported by the American Taxpayer is evidence of “Jim Crow.” Shocking it is that any self-respecting person supports O’Rourke, who himself is sponsored by communist George Soros.

Consider the Democrats and President Trump. There is not one single law that President Trump has sought to enforce on immigration that has not already been passed by Congress and has the force of settled law. Trump is constitutionally mandated to enforce existing law. Yet, with Democrat encouragement, mobs rule the country even protesting the Immigration and Customs Enforcement! Exactly the same mob-mentality as nations that have already succumbed to communism. Beto O’Rourke even has openly considered getting rid of ICE. So much for the border.

Most of the pernicious doctrines of communism were formulated by a lazy, egotistical, repulsive atheist, Karl Marx, who busied himself cooking up criminal plots in order that the rabble might overthrow governments while his own family suffered in wanton squalor and poverty. His own personal hypocrisy knew no bounds.

More than coincidence it is that leading Democrats of today have taken on the same appearance. And it is no mere coincidence either that prominent Democrats now openly champion socialism—a communistic system that simply lacks the razor-sharp teeth of forced compliance. As Gus Hall, once leader of the Communist Party in America, admitted years ago, they had at that time only 10,000 official members, but they had “ten times that many in ‘state-of-mind’ members.” A “state-of-mind” partisan of communism. Such is the Democrat Party today.

Soros-Funded “Beto” O’Rourke Wrong for Texas; Wrong for America

Soros-Funded “Beto” O’Rourke Wrong for Texas; Wrong for America“Beto O’Rourke’s cumulative score on the “Freedom Index” of The New American is a pitiful 27%.

by Bill Lockwood

It ought to be a fair warning to Texans that Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is heavily financed by communist agitator George Soros. But a glance at his ultra-liberal voting record while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives from El Paso seals the deal against him with those who have any respect left for what remains of the United States Constitution, and who value freedom from a Leviathan-Government.

Beto O’Rourke’s cumulative score on the “Freedom Index” of The New American is a pitiful 27%. There is not a big government program that O’Rourke does not like, nor a diminishing of liberty for citizens that he does not favor.

Health Care

He voted against the bill (December, 2017) known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that would cut corporate income tax rates from 35 percent to 21 percent, cut individual tax-rates through 2025, and eliminate the tax penalty on Americans who do not purchase health insurance. This last was the cornerstone of the ObamaCare 2010 legislation.

On his website O’Rourke stumps for socialized medicine, using all the left’s fabricated lies to push voters in that direction. “It means,” says Beto, “that every one of us is able to get healthy and stay healthy. It means we have access to the providers, medications and help that keep us on our feet and moving forward.” This is achieved perhaps “through a single payer system, a dual system, or otherwise…”

As Beto knows, the issue has never been about “access to providers” of healthcare coverage—even though this was the patented lie of Obama. The trouble is not access but who is paying for it?  Our Emergency Rooms have been filled for over 30 years will illegals and others who have been funded by the taxpayers. Again, access is not the issue. What is at stake is a federal government program that robs one sector of society (the producers) to pay for others (the takers).

“Healthcare is a basic human right, not a privilege,” says his website. Wrong. Healthcare is a service provided by those who have invested much personal time and money into their profession. O’Rourke thinks that by calling it his “right” that these professionals serve him he has created the “right” that that somehow mandates that I must pay for his services. No wonder Soros loves him. Liberals always miss the basic issue as to what a “right” is.

Immigration

Politifact says that it is “mostly true” that Beto O’Rourke wishes to disband ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) as accused by Ted Cruz. According to a Texas Tribune news story (July 2, 2018), at a town hall in San Antonio, O’Rourke was asked about “abolishing ICE.” Politifact writes,

O’Rourke discussed the need to eliminate fear in immigrant communities under Trump and to find a better way to enforce immigration laws. ‘And if that involves doing away with this agency, giving that responsibility to somebody else, changing how this agency performs, I’m open to doing that,’ O’Rourke said.

Yet he went on to flatly answer no when directly asked if he would abolish ICE, explaining that he does not currently know enough about how immigration law would be enforced without the agency.

‘I understand the urgency of this,’ O’Rourke said in conclusion. ‘I just want to make sure that we’re constructive in how we talk about meeting this challenge and that I understand what abolishing ICE would mean in terms of enforcing our laws going forward.’

Stop here a moment. Universal health care in Texas—socialized medicine paid for by taxpayers. No border enforcement, which means open borders. That is a simple recipe to say good-bye to the Lone Star State. Let’s just turn it over to Mexico, as is already being called for by some liberal groups. Perhaps Robert needs to be nicknamed “Reconquista” O’Rourke.

Other Issues

On Abortion, O’Rourke has proved consistent—consistently immoral. He has voted to fund the murder of the unborn with federal taxpayer-supplied funds; when a bill came before him to deny federal subsidies in ObamaCare from funding abortion, he voted NO; when the issue was to limit abortions, he was against that limitation; he refused to defund Planned Parenthood even for one year unless Congress could certify that that “healthcare provider” did not perform abortions. His website claims he wants a “chance for everyone to succeed”—unless, of course, you are a person awaiting birth from inside your mother’s womb.

Beto voted for raising the spending cap during Obama’s presidency; he is pro Common Core; and voted against the Death Tax Repeal which would have put to rest an ungodly law Robin Hood-style system of robbery. He is weak on the 2d Amendment as he promises to “close the gun show loophole.”

Another issue of keen interest to liberty-minded Texans is Beto’s support of the EPA’s “Waters of the United States” rule. As described by one writer, this bill (H.R. 2, May, 2018) was the “poster child of government overreach during the Obama administration” as it gives “unelected bureaucrats at the EPA the power to broadly interpret what is a navigable waterway” under the Clean Water Act. The practice of the EPA was to interpret the rule “so broadly” that “even a puddle in a farm’s drainage ditch could be subjected to Federal regulation.”

This is exactly the kind of kingship government that Beto prefers—an unconstitutional socialistic-style system that lawlessly regulates each patch of dirt in the great state of Texas. Beto is wrong for Texas; he is wrong for America.

Jesse Lee Peterson: DON’T LET DEMOCRATS MONKEY UP RED STATES

DON’T LET DEMOCRATS MONKEY UP RED STATES– Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson slaps candidates playing race card to get traction

by Jesse Lee Peterson

American-hating leftists have seized control of the Democratic Party, and they’re hell-bent on impeaching Donald Trump.

Andrew Gillum, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Robert “Beto” O’Rourke are rising stars in the Democratic Party. These “progressives” may appear fresh, but their agenda is the same stale socialism that Democrats have been pushing since the 1960s.

Gillum is mayor of Tallahassee, Florida. He won an upset victory in that state’s Democratic primary for governor with a message of generational “change.” Sound familiar?

Robert “Beto” O’Rourke – a beta male posing as a real Texan – is reportedly gaining on incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race. O’Rourke is trying to pander to Hispanics and blacks by using an ethnic-sounding nickname and speaking in support of NFL thugs kneeling during the national anthem.

Most Americans won’t support an openly socialist candidate, so Gillum and O’Rourke have to lie and resort to playing the race card against Republicans to get traction.

Andrew Gillum and Democrats nationwide are trying to discredit Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Rep. Ron DeSantis as “racist” because he had the audacity to warn Florida voters not to “monkey this up” by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state by electing a far-left socialist like Gillum.

DeSantis has said his comments were aimed at Gillum’s policies, not his skin color. But Democrats immediately went on the offensive labeling the Republican a “racist.” Democrats know “racism” doesn’t exist, but they use it to silence white conservatives and to instill fear in blacks and motivate them to vote.

Predictably, Democrats marched a handful of useless black pastors in front of the cameras for a press conference denouncing DeSantis. Never mind that Obama and countless other public figures have used the term “monkey things up,” but it’s only “offensive” when a conservative says it.

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

This is a distraction to take the focus off Andrew Gillum and his close associates who are being investigated as part of an FBI corruption probe. Gillum faces allegations of misconduct after hiring investor Adam Corey as the treasurer for his 2014 mayoral campaign.

Gillum is bad news! He wants to abolish ICE. He’s pro-abortion. Gillum wants to raise taxes and supports a $15 minimum wage. He opposes Florida’s stand-your-ground law and wants the voting rights of felons restored. He supports the removal of Confederate monuments. Gillum has also called for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Gillum is endorsed by Bernie Sanders and has received financial support from left-wing billionaires Tom Steyer and George Soros. Gillum also works with People For The American Way – a far left group founded for the purpose of attacking and discrediting conservative Christians.

On the other hand, his Republican opponent Ron DeSantis is a Trump supporter and a common-sense conservative.

DeSantis attended Harvard Law School, receiving his J.D. DeSantis was sworn into the Judge Advocate General Corps of the U.S. Navy in 2004. He was a military prosecutor for the Joint Task Force-Guantanamo Commander (JTF-GTMO), working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility. He opposed Obama’s plan to shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. DeSantis supports the Second Amendment (he received an A+ rating from the NRA). He opposes “sanctuary cities” and is a co-sponsor of Kate’s Law (the Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act of 2015). DeSantis opposes abortion and has denounced Planned Parenthood. He opposed Obamacare. In 2015, DeSantis was named “Taxpayer Superhero” by Citizens Against Government Waste. He also supports term limits for members of Congress.

Like Obama, Andrew Gillum is a smooth liar who presents himself as a moderate, but his record shows he’s a divisive radical Democrat. The mainstream media will never tell us the truth about these dangerous leftists, so we have to expose them for what they are.

The left wants to silence conservative Christians in the media and in the political square.

Eric Bauman, the head of the California Democratic Party (an openly homosexual activist), recently called for a boycott of the In-n-Out burger chain after a public filing revealed that the company had recently donated $25,000 to the state’s Republican Party.

He tweeted: Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party … it’s time to #BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps … perhaps animal style! http://www.lamag.com/digestblog/in-n-out-republican/ …”

What Bauman and most of the media omitted is that In-N-Out has donated money to California Democrats and Democratic PACs, in some cases much more than its noteworthy donation to the state’s GOP. The company said in a statement that it supports politicians regardless of political affiliation.

Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media are desperate to flip red states blue. They’ll lie, cheat and are treacherous in their campaign to silence their opposition. Conservatives need to stop allowing the left to restrict their freedom of speech and their actions. We can no longer afford to be slaves to the children of the lie. Don’t give in to their name-calling and lies. If you value your freedoms and want to keep America Great – get out and vote this November!

Bill Lockwood: Socialists Are Really Digressives, Not Progressives

Socialists Are Really Digressives, Not Progressives “God’s system is not only productive, but is moral and right.”

by Bill Lockwood

Leftist miseducation during the past century has mislabeled “socialism” as “progressivism” to make it more palatable to consumers. In point of fact the Socialist Progressive Movement in American history, which textbooks date from about 1890 to 1920, radically expanded the size of government. This, we are told, that it might become “more efficient” in caring for the lives of citizens. This set our nation on a course toward totalitarianism in which some candidates for political office are even toying with limiting the size of families by government fiat. Ironically, socialism, which is the rage today in the Democrat Party, has dropped the “progressive” label. But it was never progressive at all–but a digression to the failed experiments of the past.

William Bradford was the first governor of the Plymouth Bay Colony, taking office in the beleaguered outpost in April, 1621. He had been a signatory of the Mayflower Compact a month before the Pilgrims landed in December, 1620.

Part of the text of that Compact reads,

Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and the Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honor of King and Country, a voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern parts of Virginia…solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a Civil Body Politic, for our better ordering and preservation …

Though honoring God in their declaration, neither Bradford nor the rest of the Pilgrims came to a full realization of the ungodliness of a socialistic system until they tried it to a miserable failure.

As first set up, the Colony set up a system of rationing from a common storehouse to which they labored to contribute their produce from the field. But, as Henry Hazlitt describes it, “a vicious circle seemed to set in. The people complained that they were too weak from a want of food to tend the crops as they should.” After that, though deeply religious, “they took to stealing from one another.” Bradford observed that the general famine that resulted would necessarily continue under those conditions.

Captain John Smith had a similar experience in the Jamestown Colony of Virginia. After the socialistic system was in place, he observed, “When our people were fed out of the common store, and labored jointly together, glad was he that could slip from his labor, or slumber over his task, he cared not how.” Even the most “honest among them” cared little for the increase, “presuming that howsoever the harvest prospered, the general store must maintain them, …”

Complaints Harvested from Socialism

It was not long before the complaints began mounting in Plymouth. Bradford says in his Journal Of Plymouth Plantation,

For the young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense. The strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and clothes, than he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice.

Injustice it was! And a failure as well. The problem was seeking to circumvent what God had ordered for the welfare of mankind: “If a man does not work, neither let him eat.” They further expressed their dissatisfaction: “And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, etc. they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could many husbands well brook it.”

Unjust. Slavery. Failure. Pretty well sums up our own complaints from the middle class who are now forcibly enrolled in America to serve the poor.

The Remedy

Bradford tells us how the Pilgrims lighted on the remedy. The colonists,

Began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery. At length [in 1623], after much debate of things, the Governor (with the advice of the chiefest among them) gave way that they should set corn every man for his own particular [for himself and his family], and in that regard trust to themselves … And so assigned to every family a parcel of land …

The result of allowing God’s order of things to preside was remarkable.

This had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little ones with them to set corn, which before alleged weakness and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.

God’s system is not only productive, but is moral and right. To the extent that America has become a socialist nation of redistribution is the extent of our trouble and misery.

More to the point, however, is the fact that the Democrats do not represent progress by championing the Karl Marx philosophies of confiscation and redistribution—they represent digression. Whether by means of ObamaCare; Section 8 housing, food stamps, disability payments and a host of other handout programs–all of them are doomed not only to failure—but to make America miserable again. Real PROGRESS is moving ahead to freedom and unshackling the machinery of government regulation from the producers in our great nation.

Alex Newman: Democrats Sound Alarm as Far-left Fringe Takes Over Party

Democrats Sound Alarm as Far-left Fringe Takes Over Party –  “On the far-left, though, there seems to be little coherence to the agenda…  “

by Alex Newman

The Democrat Party is cracking up, but there are efforts underway to bring it back from the brink. As socialist-ruled nations across the Americas implode into violence and mass starvation, the fringe left-wing allies and supporters of those murderous strongmen in America are said to be on the verge of taking over the Democratic Party. Democratic Bernie Sanders (shown) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are both offered as examples of the “future” of the party. But after tolerating, encouraging, and flirting with the far-left fringe for years, supposedly more moderate Democrats anxious about an electoral pummeling are finally starting to speak out as a quasi-civil war breaks out in the party.

But with self-described liberals making up less than half the party and just one fourth of the electorate, the ultra-liberal Democrat Party may be too far gone to be salvaged. Consider that Communist Party USA leaders openly brag about how they “utilize” the Democrat Party to advance their totalitarian agenda in America. And consider, too, that a number of known communists and socialists were on the Democrat Party’s Platform Committee in 2016. In short, the party is wildly out of touch with mainstream America — and becoming even more so with every day that passes.

Some analysts have suggested that President Donald Trump now has the Democrats exactly where he wants them: Looking like absolute fools on national television praising the regime in Venezuela, seeking to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), calling for open borders, demanding government-controlled healthcare, behaving like fascist savages or overgrown children while terrorizing conservatives, and more. But as self-proclaimed “moderate” Democrats try to bring the party back from the brink of destruction, it remains to be seen who will win out. Plus, by pushing amnesty and mass migration, establishment Republicans could still save the Democrat Party and destroy their own.

But for now, it does not look good for Democrats. When overconfidence on the part of an incumbent allowed self-styled “Democratic Socialist” Ocasio-Cortez to defeat a longtime congressman in a primary in ultra-liberal New York, the divisions that became apparent in the 2016 Democrat primary came into focus. Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez, for instance, proclaimed that Ocasio-Cortez was the “future” the party. A number of far-left candidates are even bringing Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders in to endorse them, hoping to capitalize on her sudden fame and her improbable victory and Sanders’ status as an outsider.

But then she started talking, making outlandish statements so far detached from reality that even the far-left “fact checkers” have called her out. She also revealed that her positions are more fluid than her comrades believe gender to be; for instance, she went from supporting a two-state solution regarding Israel and Palestine to opposing it almost immediately afterward. Conservatives celebrated, hoping to make her the face of the Democrats. “We need more people like her,” Trump ally and Brexit architect Nigel Farage told a group of young U.S. conservatives. “The more loophead socialists, the crazier — the crazier people that they put up for the other party, the better it’s going to be for you guys.”

But after she repeatedly made a fool of herself on national television in the weeks since her win, and after poll results showed three in four American voters would not knowingly vote for a socialist, Democrat bigwigs and the establishment behind them are re-thinking their strategy.

Former FBI boss James Comey, a Deep State swamp creature under fire for improperly protecting Hillary Clinton from prosecution, urged Americans to vote Democrat in the mid-terms. But a few days later, he was warning the Democrat Party that they would scare away normal people if they keep acting like kooks. “Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left,” Comey wrote on social media. “This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.”

In mid-July, a group of “leading moderate Democrats,” as the press described them, gathered in Columbus, Ohio, to argue that the party should quit bashing the free-market system and obsessing over income inequality. The conference, organized by the establishment-backed think tank “Third Way,” called on Democrats to focus more on promoting “opportunity.” The self-styled “center-left” organization, which would have been considered radical left just a few years ago, backs virtually the entire agenda of the globalist establishment and the far-left. But it does it using more deceitful rhetoric.

Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.), one of the participants in the Ohio conference, urged “progressives” to tone down the extremism. “It harms us in areas where we need to win,” he was quoted as saying. “To my progressive friends who got excited about Abolish ICE, I understand the emotions, the moral vacuum that is involved in splitting up families. But when you go out there and say, ‘This is who we are,’ you’ve now made life harder for the 60 or 70 Democrats fighting in districts where we need to win if we ever want to be in the majority. Abolishing ICE is not a real political proposal.”

But for many of his increasingly unhinged colleagues demanding open borders and socialism, it is a very real political proposal. In fact, as this magazine documented in 2016, the party’s platform committee was dominated by open communists and socialists, who used their positions to push the Democrat Party further to the totalitarian left than it has ever gone in history. Even radical leftists like Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) are no longer far enough left for the communist- and socialist-controlled Democrat Party of California, which endorsed her socialist primary challenger.

In some cases, the radical left wing of the Democrat Party is openly allying itself with mass-murdering communist regimes against the United States. Consider California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, who forged an unconstitutional treaty with communist China, the most murderous government on the face of the earth. The plan: In defiance of the U.S. government, continue implementing a globalist scheme to destroy the state’s economy and further centralize power over everything under the guise of stopping “climate change.” More than a few analysts suggested Brown was committing treason.

On the far-left, though, there seems to be little coherence to the agenda — except in terms of bringing down Western Christian civilization, the U.S. Constitution, and the God-given liberties enshrined in America’s founding documents. As an example of the cognitive dissonance now afflicting the far-left fringe working to take over the Democrat Party, consider a July 23 e-mail by the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org. The message touts two Muslim women running for Congress as “progressives,” Rashida Tlaib in Michigan, an Arab, and Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, who apparently got involved in Democrat Party politics as a child just six years after arriving in America. Of course, Islam takes a dim view of “women’s rights,” and homosexuality is a capital offense under Islamic law known as Sharia. And yet, the the e-mail soliciting support for the two Muslim women candidates says they will take on unspecified “attacks on women’s rights and the LGBTQ community” by Trump and Republicans.

One of several fringe groups involved in pushing the party even further to the left is known as “Justice Democrats.” After the Third Way “Opportunity 2020” event by supposedly moderate Democrats, the outfit release a statement slamming the “establishment wing” of the Democrat Party for its “losing strategy” that has resulted in “thousands of lost seats across the country.” “We believe Democrats should engage with working class Americans, we believe we have an obligation to mobilize disenchanted voters and give them a political home,” the group said, demanding government healthcare, “guaranteed jobs,” an end to “systemic racism,” and more. The outfit, founded by former staff of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, has endorsed almost 80 “progressive” candidates seeking public office.

But there is a growing amount of anecdotal and data-driven evidence suggesting that moving further to the left will decimate the Democrat Party even further. And despite the foaming at the mouth in the establishment media, even the establishment’s propaganda polls suggest Trump is doing just fine. In fact, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey showed Trump’s job approval rating rose to 45 percent, the highest level of his presidency in that particular poll. Among Republicans, Trump remains massively popular, with 88 percent of GOP voters approving of his job so far.

By contrast, at this point in Obama’s term, just 81 percent of Democrats approved of the job he was doing. Indeed, aside from George W. Bush, whom the nation rallied behind after the September 11 attacks, Trump was the most popular president within his own party of any other on the list, stretching back to Truman. That is bad news for Democrats who hope to peel away from supposedly disaffected Republicans to help win in 2020. And keep in mind, those numbers come despite a constant barrage of fake news and anti-Trump propaganda aimed at the president, something that is increasingly becoming obvious even to the president’s critics.

Ultimately, as readers of this magazine know well, the “establishment” of both major parties cares little about the voters or what they want. Instead, top Republicans and top Democrats are all part of the Deep State Swamp — a network that includes semi-secret organizations such the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg meetings, as well as true secret societies such as the Bohemian Grove and the Skull and Bones society. As such, rather than obsessing over controlled partisan politics, Americans who truly hope to preserve liberty and the Constitution should get involved in educating their communities about the Deep State and other key issues. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts.

Jesse Lee Peterson: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS EVIL

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS EVIL– Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson warns against ‘godless and angry people’ taking over left

by Jesse Lee Peterson

All Democrats aren’t evil, but the party embodies evil. Party leaders and their followers are not interested in dialogue – they want to muzzle conservatives.

Example, Fox News host and Donald Trump supporter Judge Jeanine Pirro was rudely kicked off ABC’s “The View” by Whoopi Goldberg after she defended the president’s policies in a heated exchange. The segment ended with Goldberg telling Pirro, “Say goodbye. I’m done!”

Goldberg then confronted Pirro backstage screaming, “F–k you, get the f–k out of this building!” Pirro recounted the incident on Sean Hannity’s show, further claiming that, “I was leaving and [Golberg] said ‘F you’ in my face, literally spitting at me.” Pirro added of the incident, “I’ve tried murder cases, I’ve gone against drug cartels. … I have never been treated like that in my life.”

The attack on Jeanine Pirro is just one example of the hatred that leftists harbor toward President Trump and his supporters. Trump supporters are routinely attacked by leftists. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-CA, (aka The Wicked Witch of The West) and others encourage such attacks.

Waters recently told her supporters there should be “no sleep, no peace” for the people who support President Trump and his policies. Waters said, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and other leftist groups are carrying out Waters’ orders to a tee. While conservatives are trying to have dialogue, leftists don’t want us to show up to eat at restaurants, to do business, to speak in public or even exist in peace.

Here are recent examples of the Democratic Socialists of America and other leftists harassing Trump administration officials and conservatives. The owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave the restaurant because she works for Trump. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielson was confronted by the Democratic Socialists of America screaming “shame” and “abolish ICE” as she was dining at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, DC. They also showed up outside her home. White House adviser Stephen Miller was accosted at a Mexican restaurant by a patron calling him a “fascist.” Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren had a drink thrown on her as she was leaving a Minneapolis restaurant. Education Secretary Betsy Devos was nearly drowned out by booing and shouts of “Liar!” at the Bethune-Cookman University graduation ceremony (a historically black university).

These leftists are so blinded by Trump Derangement Syndrome, they can’t see the great things this president is doing for the country. The president signed a major tax cut bill which slashed rates for businesses and individuals. Through tax reform, Trump fulfilled another key campaign promise: repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate. Overall, U.S. unemployment dropped to 3.8 percent, an 18-year low and the unemployment rate for blacks and Hispanics is at an all-time low. Trump also signed an executive order cutting regulations for small businesses. He confirmed conservative Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. And Trump’s decision to ease restrictions on the rules of engagement has allowed U.S. forces to defeat ISIS.

But Democrats reject truth. They believe anyone who supports Trump is a “fascist” or “racist” and must be silenced by any means necessary. And they’ve allowed the party to be taken over by radicals who want to suppress Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms and encourage lawlessness.

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

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old former bartender who defeated one of the most powerful House Democrats last month, has become the darling of the Democratic Party. This socialist from New York city has picked up where Occupy Wall Street and Antifa left off; she’s driving the Democratic Party off a cliff. And Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Congress’ only self-identified democratic socialist, recently campaigned with the clueless Ocasio-Cortez.

According to reports, Ocasio-Cortez’s victory has sparked more radicals to get involved in the Democratic Party. And the Democratic Socialists of America — the group that has been showing up to harass Trump officials and supporters – has paid membership on the rise. The group says there are 42 people running for offices at the federal, state and local levels this year with their formal endorsement. They span 20 states, including Florida, Hawaii, Kansas and Michigan.

What do Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and the Democratic Socialists of America want? For starters, they’re demanding Medicare for all, a $15 minimum wage, free college tuition, open borders and the eradication of ICE.

The Democrats hard shift to the left and their obsession with destroying Trump indicates they are a party without direction. They are so desperate to win in November they’re willing to allow the party to be taken over by hard-core socialists.

The Democratic Party is made up of godless and angry people. Maxine Waters, Keith Ellison, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and the Democratic Socialists of America represent the future of the party, and they want to destroy this president and the rule of law. We can’t allow this to happen. We must expose and push back against these enemies of freedom.

Shadow Government?: Obama’s Marxist Organizing for Action

Shadow Government?: Obama’s Marxist Organizing for Action “His advocacy group of Alinsky-style agitators is called OFA, “Organizing for Action.”

by Bill Lockwood

Former President Obama is a revolutionary Marxist. His roots all trace to the hard communist left; his lawless actions as president point to the same; and his post-presidency is about more street organizing to resist the Trump organization. True to his disruptive form, while still in office in 2013, Obama established an astro-turf organization by which, after he left the White House, he may continue efforts to overturn constitutional government and escort America into a socialistic nightmare. His advocacy group of Alinsky-style agitators is called OFA, “Organizing for Action.” OFA originally stood for “Obama for America” and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, IL. Its goal is to create communist-style pressure from below to produce society upheaval.

With over 30,000 members, Obama marshals OFA fellow-travelers from his Washington, D.C. nerve-center to create chaos such as we have witnessed since the election over a year ago. As The New York Post writer Paul Sperry put it, Obama has set up a “shadow government to sabotage” the Trump Administration through a “network of leftist nonprofits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide.”

What are Obama’s OFA’s Issues?

First, Climate Change. OFA’s website tells that Obama’s activists are to “turn up the heat” on “climate change deniers.” The “stakes are too high” for us not to act, it is claimed. His radical left environmental agenda, in sync with the socialist United Nations world government plan, is to use “Climate Change” to redistribute America’s wealth to foreign nations while at the same time shutting down the progress of American industry. That’s progressivism for you.

Environmentalism is the mechanism by which socialists wish to control Americans and curtail their freedom. So whether it is global warming, global cooling, climate change or whatever—it is all “human caused” per Obama and that calls for Big Brother to control the rest of us. Liberty be trashed.

Regulate industry, nationally and internationally. Place new controls on business. Ban drilling for American-based companies while allowing it for foreign companies. Steal money from American businesses (carbon penalties) and give it to foreign nations. Malign deniers of government orthodoxy. Orchestrate thousands of unwitting college students who have been trained by leftist professors and are looking for a cause for which to march. Pluck the feathers of the eagle of American freedom. Karl Marx would be proud.

Second, Abortion. Obama has always been radically pro-abortion. Killing the unborn bothers him not in the least. He even voted in 1997 while in the Illinois State Senate to allow the abominable Herod-like procedure of “partial birth abortion” to continue. In a comment years later to a questioner in western Pennsylvania Obama said if his daughters made a mistake in getting pregnant he would not want them “punished with a baby.”

The Bible teaches that “children are a heritage from the Lord and the fruit of the womb is His reward” (Psalm 127:3). To Obama however, children are the instruments of a curse to people whose goal is free sexual activity. This reminds me of a Democrat woman who recently told me, “If you want me to carry a baby until birth, then you help pay for it!” No, ma’am. If you do not wish for children, control your sexual activity.

Perhaps no issue is quite as revealing as this one. Those who proudly enlist in the “Democrat” army of the OFA apparently have seared their consciences by supporting this public policy of infanticide. It is a pro-death culture in America encoded into legislation.

Third, Homosexual Deception. In keeping with his Marxist Alinsky-style roots which proudly utilizes lying and deception as tools for advancement, Obama repeatedly and blatantly lied about his feelings on this issue in order to manipulate the masses. David Axelrod, the primary adviser to Obama during his campaigns for president, admitted this in his 2015 memoir:

Opposition to gay marriage was particularly strong in the black church, and as he ran for higher office, he grudgingly accepted the counsel of more pragmatic folks like me, and modified his position to support civil unions rather than marriage, which he would term a ‘sacred union.’”

Obama followed Axelrod’s advice and publicly announced in 2008 that he believed marriage was between a “man and a woman.” The simple-minded were deceived. According to researcher Charles Scaliger, as early as 1996, while an Illinois state Senator, Obama answered a questionnaire in which he boldly stated that he supported “legalizing same-sex marriage” and would “fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” All of his “public support” for Christian marriage was a calculated lie.

Fourth, Socialized Medicine. That socialized medicine has never been as successful as the free-market in any country it has been tried is evident. America herself tried two general forays into socialism both at Massachusetts Bay Colony and Jamestown. Both were colossal failures.

Partly because of these failures, the founding generation outlawed any and all re-distribution schemes in America by the Constitution. Samuel Adams wrote,

The Utopian schemes of leveling and a community of goods, are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and in our government, unconstitutional.”

Of course, Obama is not the first nor the last to push unconstitutional communism. In the words of Samuel Adams, ObamaCare is “arbitrary and despotic.”

It is arbitrary in that it removes any connection between responsible living and healthcare. If one by personal choice burns his brain with drugs and alcohol—those result of those choices ought not be saddled on others who choose to live clean godly lives. Exactly the same thing is true pertaining to sexual activity and childbirth. Personal responsibility is anathema to Obama and OFA. This is why abortion itself is listed as “women’s healthcare.” ObamaCare cuts the connection between personal responsibility in lifestyle choices and the natural consequences that flow from those choices.

It is despotic because rulers and bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. make many of the decisions for a patient. Not the patient him or herself; not the family; not the local community of doctors—but government employees at a desk. Whether it be procedures, medicines, which doctor one may utilize, which healthcare plan one desires, how much money one must pay for the “uninsured”—all controlled by government.

Predictably, ObamaCare is a complete failure. Tax hikes and premium increases of over 100% in many cases continue to punish the workers in favor of those who either choose not work or who, by life-choices, have landed in low-earning jobs. More citizens saw their “pre-ObamaCare benefits” completely “disappear under the spiraling deductibles and premiums. But this loss was small potatoes to an ex-president who cared not but to kill the unborn.

The American people rejected Obama’s policies with the election of Donald J. Trump. This apparently only signaled street-war to the community-organizer who now mobilizes thousands of dupes against lawful society. Obstruction, riots, protests, and revolution are now in store for America.
