Brutus’ speech from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar makes a poignant observation on ambition: “As Caesar loved me, I weep for him. As he was valiant, I honor him. But, as he was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love, joy for his fortune, honor for his valor, and death for his ambition” (Act 3, Scene 2).
The political ambition that damned Julius Caesar is known and present in Washington, DC. John Dean’s Blind Ambition exposed this greedy evil. Dean’s book offers an insider’s view of the deceptions and machinations that run rampant inside the Beltway environment.
The Talmudic proverb says, “Ambition destroys its possessor.” This is put into prose as:
Ambition has but one reward for all:
A little power, a little transient fame,
A grave to rest in, and a fading name! History records ANNOTATED AMBITION…
An interesting read is Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and the Fate of the American Revolution by Nathaniel Philbrick. The focus of the history is on loyalty and personal integrity. Described is the remorse of Arnold’s ambitions that fatally destroyed his faith in the legitimacy of the rebellion. One whose ambitions were cut short, sold his country and forever lives infamously as the consummate traitor.
A leading figure of the French Revolution was Maximilien François de Robespierre (1758-1794); the most significant leader of the French Revolution’s radical period. Robespierre has been a metonym for faceless tyranny, his life is a metaphor for how revolutions eat their own. His evil ambition led the French to social catastrophe. In the latter part of 1793 he controlled the “Committee of Public Safety.” This Committee was developed to provide for the defense of the nation against its enemies, foreign and domestic (note the similarity to assignments in our current day). The Committee was to implement the laws and controls necessary to win the war and to strike the hearts of counterrevolutionaries. The Committee mandated harsh measures—surveillance committees, preventive detention of “supposed opponents,” and controls on personal civil liberties. This was the principal organ of the Revolutionary government during the Reign of Terror and Robespierre controlled of it. But, in 1794 he was overthrown and executed. His ambition ended with his head in a basket below the guillotine to which he had condemned thousands!
The historical records continue page after page citing personalities whose ambition was for personal glory instead of national welfare. Napoleon and Alexander the Great won victories after victories. They were Empire Builders whose personal ambitions were evil rather than beneficent. Each was crush at the hands of his ambition.
Shakespeare’s Macbeth wanted to become King. He was a brave and courageous soldier but permitted his blind ambitions to end in his downfall. Then there is Lady Macbeth whose ambition was power. The shared ambition for power blinded them to reality. Lady Macbeth’s thirst for power enabled Macbeth’s want for power. This lust for power increased and led to greater evils. It became the controlling factor in life—nothing was more important than his/her ambition!
We observe Arrogant Ambition Awry…
Obama’s ambition was to stop the rise of the oceans. In his victory speech the night he won the Democratic presidential primary three years ago, he said “[T]his was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” The arrogance of such a delusional ambition was applauded by those who ignore reality’s footnote on arrogant ambition, “A little power, a little transient fame.”
Biden’s promise to end COVID came during the 2020 campaign when he stated, “the trajectory of COVID-19 in America is headed in the wrong direction,” and presented himself as the only one able to fix it. “And so, folks, I will take care of this. I will end this.” After months of carrying on about a national plan, tyrannical mandates and referencing the unscientific CDC, WHO and NIH guidelines and best practices, he threw his hands up and confessed his failed braggadocios ambition. “Look, there is no federal solution,” Biden said December 27, 2021.
An accurate assessment of Biden’s blind ambition is noted by the New York Post: “What we’re seeing, folks, is an embarrassing lack of leadership in the Democrat-run White House. An incompetency that’s not only botching Americans’ travel plans, hurting families and jeopardizing public health — it’s also harming the US economy.”
Today there is AUTOCRATIC AMBITION verbalized!
How can the supposed “intelligent” of today ignore the failed facts of tyrannical ambition? How dare some mimic the exact pattern of behavior and express the same attitudes of the failed past excusing their evil ambition as “democracy”?
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a letter to Democratic senators on Monday. “We can and must take strong action to stop this anti-democratic march.” Years ago, Schumer said killing the filibuster was the “rubber stamp of dictatorship” and a “doomsday for democracy.” But now high-handed ambition has redirected his position.
Schumer’s ambition is shared by the entire Democratic Party—they speak of saving democracy when, in reality, their evil ambition is to destroy the Republic!
Schumer’s autocratic ambition is soon scheduled for a vote in the Senate.
Ambition is widely respected and widely condemned. Let the puppet masters and puppets on the political stage look seriously, heed cautiously and avoid strenuously the historical pitfall of greedy ambition.
• Treasonous ambition leads many to sit alongside Benedict Arnold because they choose personal ambition over patriotic loyalty.
• Blind ambition deceives, deludes, and destroys—“A person who is blind cannot guide another…will they not both fall into a pit? (Luke 6:39)
• Arrogant ambition leads one to join Napoleon and become a hated historical figure whose end is a personal “Waterloo” (Proverbs 8:13, Pride, arrogance…the perverted mouth, I hate.”
• Harvested ambition is tormenting—Lady MacBeth’s “Out, damned spot” is one of the most recognized phrases in literature. The once-defiant and determined Lady Macbeth has become undone by her own conscience. There is an unrelenting torment and inescapable culpability. The blood required by selfish ambition cannot be removed!
• High-handed ambition is rewarded with Robespierre’s inevitability—the victim of his own tyranny.
To those governing today we ask, “What motivates your ambitions?” Legislate, Judicate, and Execute with the sole ambition to defend and uphold the original intent of the United States Constitution! Your failure to do this assures destruction to our nation and infamy for your historical name. “Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing” (James 3:16).
To those governing, remember the proverb: “Ambition destroys its possessor.” The history from the past validates this proverb. The history of the future that is being chronicled today, will validate this proverb. It is the responsibility of the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive Branches of our government to utilize the past to govern the present so they do not fear the historic chronicles of the future!
John L. Kachelman, Jr.is a Christian patriot, preacher, and missionary for Jesus Christ to foreign countries. He lives in Montgomery, AL.
America is in real trouble. It is doubtful if elections will fix it. That is because our beloved country is now ruled by a Deep State—a behemoth apparatus of unelected Marxists and/or bureaucrats that are sitting in the driver’s seat, taking us over the cliff of totalitarianism. It is “we the people” who have let this monstrosity occur by allowing all powers to gravitate to a centralized government that now knows no bounds.
The Deep State, which openly threatens to completely destroy our constitutional system, is comprised of the main-stream media, which is the tainted mouthpiece for the Democratic Party; the military-industrial complex, the highest levels of the intelligence community, including the FBI and CIA, the national security apparatus, the communistic-leaning university brainwashing centers, plus the Socialist Party (aka Democrat Party).
These conclusions have become exceedingly clear in the wake of special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the “Russia” probe that plagued the presidency of Donald Trump.
According to the reporting by The Epoch Times, Perkins Coie attorney Michael Sussmann, a cyber-security expert, has been charged with one count of lying to the FBI. However, in the indictment by Durham are allegations that a coterie of insiders working with the Hillary Clinton campaign actually “devised” the “Russia collusion” hoax against Donald Trump, beginning in 2016. The key findings, as well as the implications, include:
There is a Marxist-oriented Deep State that has been at work against all things Donald Trump.
This Deep State was able to manipulate and manufacture public opinion against conservative candidate and later president Trump by “shaping the narrative” of a “collusion” between Donald Trump and Russia, all of which has been found to be groundless. Yet, this narrative absorbed practically every bit of oxygen left in our country.
There is a Deep-Seated Conspiracy to Overturn the Freedoms of the United States. Most of Durham’s 27-page report “details the coordinated actions” of multiple players in the higher echelons of government. Sussmann himself headed a group of key players in the government to
• “devise allegations regarding a secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.” These allegations were designed to
• trigger an FBI investigation into the Trump organization and “a particular Russian bank.” These insiders, led by the likes of Sussmann, worked with operatives of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
• Their goal was to damage the Trump campaign for presidency. “Durham established at the outset that the object of the conspiracy was achieved.”
• Jake Sullivan, the current national security adviser to President Biden, was himself involved in this conspiracy. Sullivan and Jennifer Palmieri, the communications director for the Clinton campaign, actually teamed up to brief the media on the Trump-Russia collusion story.
• The Main-Stream-Media gladly ran with it.
• The Democratic National Committee actually participated in the overall scheme through operative Alexandra Chalupa who, in turn, began working with willing Ukrainian officials to give the appearance of legitimacy.
• Chalupa had also worked closely with Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff, who would then report on one of Trump’s foreign policy team members, Carter Page. These manufactured reports were designed to obtain FISA warrants against Trump’s team. This also was successful.
• After Trump won the May 3, 2016 primary in Indiana, the colluders grappled with how to “roll-out” the entire story against Trump. All conspirators, including Hillary Clinton herself, understood that these machinations would never amount to a real indictment against Trump, but would at least hinder his candidacy, and later roadblock his presidency. This is exactly what occurred.
• British spy Christopher Steele was later brought into the conspiracy. In April 2016, Fusion GPS was hired by Perkins Coie specifically to “continue research” on Trump. Fusion would then turn around and hire Steele.
It is also more than interesting that the left becomes basically “unhinged” when the word “conspiracy” is used to refer to their plots, schemes, and machinations against Donald Trump or conservatism in general. However, after Steele was hired, with approval from Hillary Clinton, he hastily produced and undated infamous “Steele dossier” which alleged “a well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between Donald Trump and the Kremlin.
At the same time, the Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook was publicly suggesting on CNN with Jake Tapper that “experts are now saying the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump.”
The incriminating emails in question were those of the DNC that had been released that showed that the DNC had undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders. Mook went on to say, “This isn’t my assertion. There are a number of experts that are asserting this….This is what experts are telling us.” The experts he had in mind were apparently those of his Marxist club.
Two days later the then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released documents that alleged that Hillary Clinton allegedly approved a proposal from “one of her foreign policy advisors” to “vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security forces.”
Thus, the Russia-Trump collusion was a hoax—hatched in the brains of conspirators against our Republic. More ominous still is the fact that this Deep State continues to control the Unite States. So, whether the topic is vaccinations or unmanageable spending and debt, unconstitutional global “treaties” that strip America of its wealth, more onerous IRS armies grasping for the earned tax dollars of workers, or flagrantly abusing the law by leaving our borders wide open—little will be able to be done by constitutionalists unless strongest measures are quickly undertaken.
We need immediately to begin Nullifying lawless federal actions; establishing “sanctuary cities” and “counties” against the onslaught of this communism; empowering provisional governments at the state level to push back against the feds, or simply secede.
You definitely remember where you were on September 11, 2001 when the Twin Towers collapsed. This article examines where you were 19 years later (September 11, 2020).
Click on this countdown that gives the day when our general election will our nation either secure our liberty or the progressives will sacrifice our freedom…
Each morning’s news briefings highlight the steady march of our nation to a decision regarding its destiny. When each day’s developments are added to the existing analysis of information already made public, a serious alarm is sounded. Below are four points that I ask you to consider. These look at the facts and developments that are the vanguard of the November 3, 2020 general election.
In war the key to victory is formulating a strategy that is communicated simply and deployed easily. The messaging of the invading forces must follow the elementary principles of propaganda so the masses will be “softened” and open to the coming conflict (hence historically military operations have dropped brochures and leaflets to persuade the population of the intended conflict to be less resistant to those about to invade and more willing to oppose those targeted for removal).
In war the key to a successful defense is knowledge, understanding and action that disrupts and destroys the enemy’s strategy.
Currently YOU are involved in this strategy. YOU are targeted by a constant pre-emptive propaganda blitz. The below points are not fiction. They are not idle and inconsequential exercises of “war games.” YOU are being manipulated by fear mongering. YOU are being intimidated by deliberate design. YOU are being censored as you utilize social media platforms generating millions of dollars for the purpose of supporting an agenda with the objective of sedition.
Angrily YOU say, “I DO NOT support such!” This is where the analysis becomes interesting. Exposed is the cleverly designed objective to manipulate you so YOU are a “useful idiot” in the strategy destroying your nation. Hence the warning is applicable: “Consider yourselves warned, America.”
Please read all points below.
A fitting introduction is taken from Kelly’s (see below for link) article (first point) published in American greatness: “Their plan, using the intentionally misleading title, ‘Transition Integrity Project,’ outlines alarming and wholly unconstitutional responses to a number of post-election scenarios. Once upon a time, I would’ve read such a far-fetched document through tears of laughter. But considering the desperation and depravity of the people involved, this terrifying roadmap needs to be taken seriously.”
Kelly astutely warns, “A vengeful and well-funded coalition of Trump-hating insurrectionists are prepping the battlefield for a post-election civil war, threatening not only to extend the 2020 election into 2021 but to weaponize every tool at their disposal to make sure Joe Biden assumes the presidency even if President Trump legitimately wins.”
The article details how the DEMS/Liberal Left/Progressives have mapped the plan for the compromise, confusion, chaos, and eventual censure of the election’s results.
“Organizers, including Clinton loyalist John Podesta and NeverTrump leader Bill Kristol, have been playing war games for the past few months, plotting how to deploy media, government, and public armies to install Biden no matter what. Their scorched earth strategy rests on two factors: the use of widespread mail-in voting, intended to delay the official result so they can manipulate the outcome while stoking civil unrest until Republicans cry uncle, and the notion that if he loses, President Trump will claim the Democrats stole the election, a legitimate possibility that this plan only serves to further validate.”
The objective that is planned is that a “constitution crisis” will be announced and the chaos will be exploited for a violent overthrow of the elected officials and the placement of those specifically selected to “transform” the USA from its Constitutional Republic into the “whatever-will-evolve” governing structure.
Key to this operation are the mass protests, the continued poisoning of the public’s mind by the evil propaganda spewed by the hateful media, destruction of valid ballots and the harvesting of false ballots. Critical to this operation will be the constant turmoil that is stirred by the DEMS in their attacks on our President and those in his Administration. The “TIP” group at one point envisioned at least 4 million Biden supporters taking to the streets with warnings of “violent skirmishes and vandalism.”
These insurrectionists plan and predict that there will be “a breakdown in the joint session of Congress by getting the House of Representatives to agree to award the presidency to Biden based on the alternative pro-Biden submissions sent by pro-Biden governors.” January 20, 2021 would arrive with no clear winner, raising the specter of military action.
Alarm #2 Sounding
An EXCEPTIONAL communication was received on 10 September 2020…
Friend, Democrats masked and impoverished America to rig an election. COVID-19 has been wildly inflated to scare Americans and increase the people’s reliance upon the government. Every four years, the Democrats have a new ploy to take the focus away from qualified candidates and stir national pandemonium—thinking that this will scare Americans into voting blue. This year the American people are waking up…Nancy Pelosi’s salon blowout trip without a mask made it clear that COVID-19 is not a real threat to the Democrats. Nancy has no problem putting the single mother who owns the salon out of work and shutting down her business in order to achieve a radical Leftist political agenda. The unhinged far-Left has now become the face of the Democrat party. Children are 20x more likely to die in an accident and 10x more likely to die of the flu than to die of COVID-19 and yet they are masking your small children in school — why?! It all goes back to the election. Democrats are scaring voters into fraudulent mail-in voting. I am working against the radical Democrat party to unleash the truth during this election cycle. The Democrats are using COVID-19 and BLM to push their political agenda and once this election cycle ends they will forget all about the pandemic and the BLM movement. Every Democrat city has been run into the ground and is a distressing scene of poverty and high crime rates. Their policies have not helped minorities and they never will. America needs to wake up and realize that the Left has been lying to them year after year for decades.
Here is probably the one point that will ignite your ire toward me more than anything else. We are dealing with facts and not what you feel or how you have been manipulated to ignore the facts. The facts are given by those involved. Right before your eyes are the very words of those subtly seeking to manipulate the election (it appears most are as ancient Judah who had ears but would not hear and eyes but refused to see in Jeremiah 5:21). The evidence has been abundantly presented by investigative reporters. This states the FACTS of the situation and not what you FEEL. This may not be YOUR position but YOU are enabling this ungodly agenda to have fuel.
Social Media platforms continue to be used to manipulate the population. A direct threat of murder to those who disagree politically was posted on Twitter. FaceBook is extensively involved in insidious efforts to subvert and destroy our Republic. Yes, there is MUCH about FB that is commendable BUT an evil mission is deliberately embedded. An entire gallon of water can have pure water but a small drop of poison proves fatal to the entire volume!
For years professional security sources have urged people to avoid these platforms. Those posting reveal significant information on every aspect of their lives. The posts are a treasure trove for the unfriendlies. Your name, address, activities, family members, finances, security, EVERYTHING about your life that you consider valuable is exposed. And if not exposed by YOU personally, it is exposed by those linked to you!
Indeed, it is a “social disease” and everyone in contact with you is a point of compromise for your security and the security of your entire family! Photos are rich sources of data mining about your personal security. And the amazing fact is that you eagerly and willingly compromise the security of yourself, your family, your associates! You have willingly provided security details that betray the safety and well-being of your family! This is NOT my personal bias but the repeated warnings of professional security analysts.
By participating in these social media platforms, you provide millions of dollars in revenue that is used to support the sedition undermining our nation.
By participating in these social media platforms, you volunteer to place yourself under the censorship of those dedicated to anarchy. You agree to allow the “censors” to decide what can be used.
This is not my personal opinion. Look at two points brought to light within the past few days…
First, FB has committed to a “censorship” to make sure that which they determine as “hate-speak” is prevented from being published. This hate-speak includes any overtly positive nationalism, “radical” religious tenets (identified as “Christianity”), and political “untruths.” This sounds good. Who would object to a filter that removes hate, lies and division? But YOU are being played! Who are those selected to compromise the FB censorship committee? “18 out of 20 members on Facebook’s fact-checking board have ties to George Soros.” https://gellerreport.com/2020/09/18-out-of-20-members-on-facebooks-fact-checking-board-have-ties-to-george-soros.html/
Second, multiple sources have documented how FB has a subtle campaign to “soften” the American population to accept a prolonged, if not an indefinite, electoral decision. YOU are being played to start thinking that the final results should be allowed weeks or months for certification. YOU are being played to accept the lie that the initial results will be wrong and that Trump is “stealing” the election.
In an incredible interview Mark Zuckerberg tells you this happening and he lays the battle plan out right before your eyes. “Amid election security concerns, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg attempted to normalize the possibility of a delayed outcome of the upcoming presidential election were to occur. This despite the fact that he is not an elected official and holds no government position. ‘One of the things that I think we and other media need to start doing is preparing the American people that there’s nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or even weeks to make sure that all of the votes are counted,’ Zuckerberg told “Axios on HBO.” Did you understand the point—YOU are being “normalized”!
FB’s Zuckerberg continued, “In fact, that may be important to make sure that this is an important, legitimate, and fair election.” Administrators will market messaging around this premise “just to make sure people know that’s normal.”
You will probably fuss and cuss me for the above. But you cannot ignore for long the battle plan charted by those deliberately using you. FB, Twitter and other social media platforms pander to the desire of gossip. Remove the “idle talk” and what do you have? You say you do not support such, but by your logging-on and your clicks, you are involved. The damage done to the American culture, civility and conscience by these social network platforms cannot be undone. These allow the most ungodly conversations and communicates acceptance of the greatest immoralities.
These actions are decimating our nation. You may “hide” such comments and such people BUT your continued log-ons and clicks fund and fuel the mechanism that has brought about the current crisis in our nation. You may “hide” the “unwanteds” on your FB page but you cannot hide your support for this evilly designed program.
Think on this—“Aiding and abetting a crime” is a legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets (encourage; support; give material assistance; to join not necessarily in person) in the commission of a crime. It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if they are not the principal offender. In war such is a crime deserving death.
Alarm #4 Sounding
Our national security is currently threatened by different actions. We have been compromised (as Owens ably notes above) by the fear mongers of the “scamdemic.” These are hypocritically “protecting your freedom and health” while subtly restricting your personal freedoms and limiting your individual choices! Adding further chaos is the racial unrest that erupted by the design of the BLM/ANTIFA/DEMS/Liberals/Progressives. Everything that clashes with the Progressive Dem agenda is labeled “racist.” BUT the Progressives are the biggest racists in our culture. They accuse the Christians of being “fascists” but the protestors epitomize fascism! Consider this maneuver by the University of Michigan (Tuesday September 8, 2020):
https://archive.is/qkIzq “The University of Michigan-Dearborn hosted racially segregated events on Tuesday, one for ‘Non-POC,’ and the other for ‘BIPOC’ (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) students. During the two racially segregated ‘cafes,’ the groups were encouraged to ‘discuss their experience as students on campus.’
“‘The Non-POC (People Of Color) Cafe is a space for students that do not identify as persons of color to gather and to discuss their experience as students on campus and as non-POC in the world,’ read the event description on the university’s website. Although the university has since pulled the relevant pages off their website, archives of the information pages exist.
“‘Feel free to drop in and discuss your experiences as non-persons of color and hopefully brainstorm solutions to common issues within the non-POC community,’ added the description.”
THIS IS WHERE YOU WERE ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2020…
Your nation is NOT in an enviable position. Your nation is precariously perched on a precipice. Have you seriously considered that YOU are unwittingly contributing to this decline? I do not want to hear you protest about the censorship, decline and inevitable criminality of practicing the Christian religion if you sit idly while your country is hijacked and you simply proceed “aiding and abetting” this calamity.
In the 1930’s Germany was being manipulated by the Fascist National Socialist politicians. Their takeover of the German nation was incremental, almost imperceptible. Little-by-little Germany was infected by a malignancy that eventually led to multiple millions dying. An early supporter of the National Socialist was Martin Niemöller. He embraced the politics and was played by the manipulators. Too late he realized his mistake and decided not to cooperate with the manipulators. He left behind this confession: “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Ancient Judah was precariously perched on the precipice of national existence. God revealed the truth and the machinations of the Evil destroying the nation. The message sent to the nation was simple, “Consider yourselves warned, Judah!”
Historically there is not an encouraging ending to such a national warning. What did Judah do when warned that she was about to be removed? There was an element within the national leaders who refused to listen and the general population followed this “mainstream” urging. The tragedy of the nation’s demise and erasure of existence was announced, “the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?” (Jeremiah 5:31).
Let this calamitous refrain play over and over in your mind; let it prick your conscience, “My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?”
This is where YOU were on September 11, 2020…“But what will you do at the end” of the election? Where will YOU be November 4, 2020?
Click on this link and look at the countdown to the day that either secures our liberty or sacrifices our freedom…
John Kachelman, Jr.is a Christian patriot, preacher, and missionary for Jesus Christ to foreign countries. He lives in Montgomery, AL.
The inspiring ideals enshrined in the founding documents of our nation include a limited government that allows maximum personal freedom, equality of opportunity, and equal justice under the law. These are founded upon the pillars of inalienable rights, including the fact that all men are created by God as equal. But we have gone about “as far left” as socialist policies can take us if the Democratic debates are an indication of where America will be tomorrow.
“Our job,” Bernie Sanders spouted in the Iowa debate, “is to build the United Nations.” Not surprising from a socialist who has been photographed enjoying toasts with the leader of the old Soviet Union’s gulag communistic state. But frightening that he maintains substantial support in the Democratic Party.
The United Nations has been from its inception a design for socialistic world government. In its most recent COP 25 climate summit in Madrid, Spain, Executive Director Stuart Scott called for the UN to implement drastic population-control policies and “family planning” such as control the Chinese. Other plans include a massive transfer of wealth from “western countries” (read, “United States”) to third world poorer nations in the form of “climate reparations.” The UN is a world dictators’ dream. This is what Bernie Sanders favors. National Socialism is not brave enough—we need International socialism.
It is inescapable, however, that we have already lost so many of our freedoms that have made America the envy of the world. Whether due to taxes, to regulations on our businesses, farms, homes, cars, to our activities, to our speech, and to our abilities to exercise without government interference our religious liberty—our American heritage has dwindled.
So the issue is whether we will preserve even the semblance of our once-cherished ideals of limited government, the sovereignty of the States, the protection of life and property that is so nobly enshrined in our founding documents? Will we maintain any semblance of our freedom over our own health care or will we capitulate to the totalitarian proposals of the Democrats by which the government becomes a monopoly funded 100% by the American taxpayer? Will we continue the path to a more limited government under president Donald Trump or listen to the siren song of socialists?
“The modern trend is in the direction of greater concentration of power in the hands of government. The problem of individual freedom within the framework of a more or less regulated economy will have to be fought out in our age, just as the question of political liberty and the free market were the issues in Jefferson’s day. … Jefferson felt that without liberty, life was not worth living. …In the difficult years that undoubtedly lie ahead, Americans will have to gather all their moral forces for the preservation of their way of life, their liberties, and their opportunities.”
Representatives Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler set a very dangerous precedent when they refused to conduct impeachment hearings according to constitutional due process standards. Democrats are so desperate for power that they would overturn the election of a President of the United States based on their biased and partisan interpretation of his telephone conversation with a foreign leader.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was initially reluctant to risk the electoral backlash of impeachment. She finally bowed to far-left pressure, ignoring the President’s astounding economic and foreign policy successes. Her worst nightmare is coming true — rising approval for President Trump and rising disapproval for the Democrat Party and their presidential candidates.
This is because the impeachment process we are witnessing is decidedly un-American. Using secretive, totalitarian-style, one-party interrogations is not due process and is unworthy of a constitutional republic.
Democrats ignored the constitutional standard for impeachment to remove a president: “Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” No unbiased adjudicator could conclude that President Trump’s telephone discussion with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky is an impeachable offense. Far from a “high crime,” the President was carrying out his duty to the people of the United States. He was guarding our treasure and protecting our national integrity. Ukraine has been one of the most corrupt nations in the world, and he was right to request an investigation. If taxpayer funded aide was used as leverage to enrich the former vice president’s son, the American people should know.
Instead of thanking the President for his diligence, Democrats in Congress had the temerity to accuse him of committing an “abuse of power.” The Executive Branch of the United States government is separate and co-equal. George Washington University law professor and constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley told the House Judiciary Committee that it would be Congress abusing power if they try to stop the President from exercising his constitutional prerogatives. Schiff, Nader and Pelosi ignored that unbiased counsel.
They have chosen instead to drag the country through an impeachment process while trampling the constitutional and due process rights of a sitting President. If they ignore his rights, why would they respect those of the average citizen?
Due process rules are not reserved to criminal trials alone. They are essentially the same in regulatory and administrative hearings. Those rules reach even to private entities operating under “color of law.” To suggest that a proceeding as grave as a presidential impeachment need not follow the same basic procedural rules of fairness is ludicrous on its face.
Hearsay is excluded from evidence in court proceedings because it is notoriously unreliable. Yet Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent and acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor were called before the House Intelligence Committee with great pomp and ceremony to offer only hearsay. Defendants always have a right to confront their accusers, yet the “whistleblower” remains an anonymous figure.
Adam Schiff went beyond hearsay to outright falsehood. Speaking on the floor of Congress, he reported that President Trump said to President Zelensky, “I want you to dig up dirt on my opponent and lots of it.” The President said nothing of the kind. Schiff later claimed it was a “parody.” This is the same Adam Schiff who said he had incontrovertible evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia. The only conclusion supported by evidence is that Adam Schiff is a pathological liar.
Democrats also violated the principle that the accused has a right to a vigorous defense. The earliest hearings were closed to Republicans. Information from those inquiries was selectively leaked to the press. Depositions were taken in secret. Rep. Andy Biggs, Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, compared the sessions to Soviet secret hearings. He proposed a resolution on the House floor to condemn and censure Schiff, but of course House Democrats tabled the proposal.
Long gone is the Democratic Party of President John F. Kennedy, Vice President Hubert Humphrey, Senators Scoop Jackson and Sam Nunn. It is now a party of hardcore leftists, more aligned with Karl Marx than Thomas Jefferson. They are now completely driven by extreme leftist ideology. Lacking evidence that President Trump committed any crime or even did anything morally wrong, they recklessly passed articles of impeachment, with no regard to the great damage they are doing to our Republic. The Democratic Party once had statesmen, but it is now the refuge of demagogues.
Their Stalinist impeachment show trial demonstrated gross disrespect for our elections and the peaceful transition of power. This has been nothing less than an attempted coup d’etat, but these de facto communist revolutionaries will face the wrath of the American voter. Tuesday, November 3, 2020 will be a day of reckoning.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson marvels at hypocrisy of progressive ‘people of color’

In her controversial article entitled “It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges,” former ESPN host Jemele Hill – now a staff writer for the Atlantic – calls for elite black college athletes to leave predominantly white schools.
Hill says black athletes help attract money and attention to “predominately white universities that showcase them,” while Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) continue to struggle. She writes that mostly white schools’ multibillion-dollar revenues have been built on the “exertions of (uncompensated) black athletes.” She also says that black students “feel safer, both physically and emotionally,” at an HBCU.
On May 17, 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court declared with Brown v. Board of Education that segregated schools were unconstitutional. Sixty-five years later, Jemele Hill wants black athletes to stay out of predominantly white universities and colleges – the late segregationist George Wallace would be proud! Hill is feeding poisonous lies to young blacks. Her divisive message of hate, blame and victimhood is not about helping blacks; it’s about gaining fame and getting back at whites for “racism” and slavery.
Jemele Hill is a hypocrite. She attended Michigan State University – a predominantly white institution. She used her degree to get a job at ESPN (a liberal white company). She was later fired by ESPN in 2018 after she continuously lied and tweeted accusing President Trump of being a “white supremacist” and a “bigot” who was “unqualified and unfit to be president.” ESPN initially declined to punish her for the tweet, but then sidelined her for two weeks in October 2017, after she violated the company’s social media guidelines again. Another violation occurred when she called on fans to boycott advertisers of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they did not stand up during the national anthem.
Hill’s call for black athletes to forgo attending predominantly white universities is dumb. Student athletes want to attend schools that offer the best opportunity to excel in the classroom and on the field or court. They’re looking for colleges that have great coaching and high visibility, and HBCUs cannot offer student athletes the same opportunities.
For decades, liberal blacks have been complaining about the lack of “diversity” and “inclusion,” and whites have given in to all of their crazy demands. Blacks and whites participated in the civil-rights movement and fought for integration. Now Hill wants blacks to separate from whites. And many black liberals in academia and in the Democratic Party agree with her.
More than 75 universities now host blacks-only graduation ceremonies. A few notable universities they’re held at include UC San Diego, UC Irvine, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Yale and Arizona State University. Many others also offer similar ceremonies for Latino or LGBTQ student populations. Harvard this year also debuted a “UndocuGraduation” for students in the country illegally.
I’ve always been opposed to forced integration. I believe that once laws were changed to allow blacks equal protection and the freedom to move around freely, blacks and whites would have naturally come together based on character and common values.
As much as Jemele Hill hates President Trump, he has done more to help HBCUs than Barack Obama. Less than a month into his presidency Donald Trump met with education leaders and signed an executive order reaffirming support to Historically Black Colleges and Universities. According to the Department of Education records, in 2018 Trump appropriated more than $360 million – $32 million more than Obama – but there is no mention of this in Hill’s article.
I grew up in Alabama near Tuskegee, home of Tuskegee Institute founded by the late great Booker T. Washington. Tuskegee used to be a top-notch institution where blacks went to get a real education that prepared them for the real world. Truckloads of black Americans graduated from Tuskegee and went on to become successful. Many HBCU graduates, including members of my family and friends, went on to become doctors, teachers, nurses and skilled tradesman. And because they had good parents, morals and sound work ethic, they went back to where they came from and enhanced their communities.
Today, most HBCUs are a joke. They offer lousy programs, and most of the students are not serious. The schools promote useless degrees focused on “Social Justice,” “Critical Race Theory” and “Pan-African Studies.” HBCUs should be made into trade schools or disband.
Should student athletes be compensated? Student athletes get scholarships to cover tuition, but if the Fair Pay To Play Act passes, California student athletes may be able to make money from the use of their names, images and likenesses. I don’t have a problem with student athletes being paid, but this should be something that is worked out with the NCAA and athletes. Jemele Hill’s call for segregation is not about helping black students; it’s about hating whitey and promoting her career.
Until black people stop hating and blaming whites, they will always feel inferior, and they will continue to be misled by race hustlers.
Jesse Lee Peterson blasts left for attacking people for telling truth
by Jesse Lee Peterson
America is a Christian nation, but that fact has been under attack by the children of the lie. The left has pushed immorality to the point we have so-called “same-sex marriage” and “transgender” nonsense trampling the rights of Christians. “People of color” and “women” join the attack on freedom of speech and our rights to self-defense. Good people are accused of “hate speech,” punished for telling the truth in public – or even in private!
Christians, men and especially white people are under attack. Christians are forced to bake “gay cakes” for homosexuals pretending to get “married.” Men are falsely accused of “sexual harassment,” “sexual assault” or of being “child molesters” – and they’re not allowed to say the women are lying! Children are abused by women, even killed in the womb, and the man can’t do anything to protect his children. White people are called “racist” just for loving their country, for telling the truth about “people of color,” or for standing up for white people.
A decade ago, the fallen messiah Barack Obama claimed America is “no longer a Christian nation.” He pushed homosexuality and transgender madness, and took up for Muslims at every opportunity. He was the first “feminist” president, and loved abortion.
Obama attacked whites and police, making blacks feel justified in their anger and false victimhood. He brought Black Lives Matter to the White House – a group worse than the KKK, founded by black lesbians, homosexuals and white “social justice warriors.” They killed the souls of black people by pushing anger, and their attacks on police resulted in an increase in murders around the country.
You cannot be a Christian and support the Democrat Party. After Obama, they’ve only grown more radical, electing far-left Muslims, homosexuals, and women – in order to attack a real men, President Trump. Donald Trump represents everything they hate – the goodness of America. The straight, white, conservative, Christian man of power built this country. But leftists don’t want America to be made great again, so they go after all males, white people, and Christians in order to take down Trump.
This week, they went after Democrat Joe Biden – Obama’s vice president. They accused him of sexual harassment with no proof. For years, Biden openly kissed and tried to flatter women and little girls in front of cameras – never trying to hide it. But now people impulsively judge him as “creepy,” watching suggestively edited videos that play on the imagination and people’s anti-male brainwashing. In the old days, men warned you to believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.
But Biden as a hated “white male” is not welcome in the Democrat Party. They want a woman or a “person of color” to run for president.
Men have been trained by women to show affection, to worship women, make them feel special – but only with “consent.” Meanwhile, women throw themselves on men, hug and kiss men without permission, sexually assault them, and even rape men and young boys. Even Christians join in on this double-standard, in which every man is a suspected “rapist” or “child molester.” At our recent Men’s Forum at my nonprofit BOND, a home contractor said he wears a camera on himself all day to prevent being accused!
The city of Chicago recently elected a black lesbian for mayor. She’s pretending she will end the corruption in the city. But she herself is morally corrupt – she has no values. She’ll go after the Christians, white people and men, and only further destroy the city.
There are homosexuals who are stuck in that lifestyle but know it’s wrong. But this new mayor-elect, Lori Lightfoot, is promoting wrong as right. Similarly, Pete Buttigieg, a homosexual millennial mayorof South Bend, Indiana, is trying to run for president. The corrupt liberal media love him for being shamelessly homosexual. The former mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, is a lesbian with a pretend “wife.” Females on the Supreme Court and in Congress have conducted so-called same-sex “weddings.”
In Ireland, they have a homosexual prime minister who brought his gay “partner” to America for an official event with Vice President Mike Pence. This man, Leo Varadkar, gave a slap in the face to Christians, speaking against “discrimination.” The radical homosexuals are allowed to discriminate against Christians, but not the other way around. There is no freedom.
Christians have lost their countries because Christians are no longer any different from the world. They believe that they can be born again of God and continue to sin. The men are controlled by women – they kiss up to women in their personal lives and in politics. The whites are afraid to tell the truth to the people of color. The Christians have anger in their hearts, playing God – there’s no love in anger, but only fear, doubt, worry and insecurity. Christian parents are sacrificing their children to corrupt schools where kids come out liberal, turning away from God.
If you want your country to be right, you have to be right. As Christ said, you must become perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect.
Jesse Lee Peterson blasts new crop of leftist radicals in government
by Jesse Lee Peterson
Immoral Democrat women have corrupted young people to believe that morality is not important, and now more than ever these women are being elected to run our government. Women, more than men, promote and make excuses for immorality. Real men do not go along with wrongdoing, but beta males abandon morality and follow these women. Such people hate God, hate men, hate the unborn child, and love to promote their immoral false morality.
Nancy Pelosi said that President Trump’s proposed border wall is “immoral.” But she’s immoral – she supports abortion, same-sex marriage and illegal aliens coming in unchecked, putting our country at risk. She makes wrong people feel right. Maxine Waters is also immoral. She wants to impeach the president, pretending to care about children and families separated at the border. But she says nothing about abortion or the broken black family. She makes immoral people out to be “victims” and then blames the moral people!
A new crop of immoral women have taken office, voted in by immoral young Democrat voters. Liberal magazine Vanity Fair put out a photo featuring freshman Democrat “women of color” now in our government. The photo features Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Deb Haaland, Veronica Escobar and Sharice Davids. They set a poor example in their personal lives and would never have been elected when the country cared about morality.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D.-N.Y., is a socialist who falsely calls President Trump a “racist.” She has been living with a boyfriend whom she calls her “partner.” I have had many conversations in my Church and on my radio show with Millennials who have been misled to believe it’s okay to live with a boyfriend or girlfriend and have sex before marriage. (Radical homosexuals and feminists push the term “partner” instead of “boyfriend” or “husband” to dull awareness that men and women are different and not “equal.” They also try to kill people’s consciousness that homosexual relations are abnormal and immoral.)
Ayanna Pressley is celebrated by morally bankrupt people as the first “African American” representative from Massachusetts. But she married a man who already has a young daughter by another woman. This is immoral and selfish – children’s souls yearn for their real parents, and don’t want to compete with a stepparent for attention. Ayanna and her new “husband” have sacrificed his daughter’s soul to satisfy their own desires. This beta male supported his new “wife’s” campaign and has been misleading other young black males a “leader” in Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” program.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is a divorced and remarried mother, and a hijab-wearing Somalian Muslim refugee. She should not be allowed to wear an Islamic headscarf in Congress! She supports socialism and the radical “LGBTQIA+” agenda. She also lied about opposing “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) against Israel. Moral people would never elect such a Muslim to run our government!
Deb Haaland, D.-New Mexico, is celebrated by shallow people as one of the first “Native American” women in Congress. She was a single mother and raised a daughter who came out as a lesbian. After Haaland was elected, she falsely accused President Trump of “rhetoric of erasing trans people in this country” and “ripping children from their parents.” This failure of a parent turned her daughter away from the father, and pretends to care about people confused about their gender and sexuality.
Veronica Escobar, D.-Texas, is a “Mexican-American” mother and politician who officiated the so-called “wedding” of a young “gay couple” who supported her. She claimed Trump “really frightened” her, saying, “I worry about the planet. I worry about immigrants. I worry about women. I worry about the LGBT community.” President Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, the sheriff falsely accused of “racial profiling” and “contempt” of court by a liberal judge. In reaction, she cursed and lied, “Un-f***ing-believable! … do you know what message that sends to Hispanics? ‘You don’t belong here.’” She doesn’t belong in office!
Sharice Davids, D.-Kansas, is another first “Native American” female representative – and a lesbian, the “first openly LGBT member of Congress from Kansas.”
Last week I wrote about “the first Palestinian American” Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D.-Michigan. The divorced single mother told one of her young sons of President Trump, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf—er.” She repeated this at a bar at a MoveOn.org event after being sworn into office. I said then that she is a national security threat to the country. She should be focused on setting a better example for her children, not running the country!
President Trump is a moral man. He loves the country. He moved past his errors in life, no longer bragging about wrongdoing. Sinners attack Trump because he says he does not ask God for forgiveness. But he does right today – not wrong. Once you repent and are born again of God, you no longer sin. The hypocrites, like Satan, endlessly bring up Trump’s past to accuse him, when they’re no better.
They don’t care about what’s right, but hate good men. Just look at the immoral women they promote.
Hillary Clinton is trying to get ahead of the frenzied riotous forces that she helped unleash, voicing that “civil discourse” cannot be—as long as the left is out of power. Being interviewed by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Clinton stated: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”
Clinton added, “That’s what I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or Senate, that’s when civility starts again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
As Rick Moran comments in PJMedia.com, “The most prominent Democrat in the country has, for all intents and purposes, just given a green light to every left-wing kook and violent sociopath to be uncivil to Republicans.”
Besides the fact that the eruptive and unrestrained mobs ransacked the nation’s capital as the Kavanaugh hearings were underway; and prominent conservatives such as Senator Ted Cruz have been chased out of restaurants by tumultuous crowds; and paid screamers recently burst on the Capitol; and one Congressman, Steve Scalise has already been shot in an attempted assassination that was specifically fueled by leftist rhetoric—Hillary Clinton waves for more ungovernable mob action. Why? This is the Left’s DNA.
Observations from a Cattleman
J. Evetts Haley (1901-1995) was a famed Texas historian, rancher and conservative politician who is best known for his biography on Texas cattleman Charles Goodnight of the Palo Duro country. He taught at UT from 1929 to 1936. But these were the days of the rising tide of “progressivism”, specifically FDR’s New Deal, which Haley rightly saw as socialism. His voiced opposition brought about his dismissal. “I was fired because of my vigorous fight against the invasion of socialistic federal power.”
It is this socialistic federal power which is the topic of his 1964 book, A Texan Looks at Lyndon: A Study in Illegitimate Power. His assessments and incisive logic regarding the growth of unconstitutional government cannot be matched. Represented by the Clinton’s nasty power-machine, Haley’s warnings are coming to pass.
Haley exposes two factors that encourage Illegitimate Government in the following. One of them is deceit of the politicians; the other is a compliant and partisan press. As if writing about the Obama-era corrupted Administration, including the FBI and DOJ, Haley says,
When deceit and duplicity become accepted government policy, no sage is wise enough to anticipate the ultimate and possibly violent end. Inherently this means the abrogation of the God-given right of free speech, the perversion and hence destruction of the freedom of the press, and the denial of that indispensable ingredient of all legitimate governments, the consent of the governed.
Although speaking of the Dwight Eisenhower through Lyndon Johnson periods, Haley’s observations regarding the media are classic.
After steady if not studied attrition of these rights and principles through many years, through preferential treatment of some, and coercion and blackmail of others, vast portions of the news media in America have been reduced to sycophantic if not criminal confederates of the Establishment or the man in power. This was no less obvious in the successful buildup of a politically inexperienced army man by politicians and press to the stature of a hero worthy to be President, than in the instant, repulsive reversal of position toward Lyndon B. Johnson when adverse fate elevated him to the presidency.
Continuing in this vein regarding the complicit media complex in America, Haley writes,
One wonders if these prostitutes of the media are simply so deluded by their own inflated sense of important position and power as really to believe what they say, or whether they are so devoid of character as to slant and distort the truth for personal expediency, or whether they, like the late utterly cynical Harry Hopkins, simply believe the people are just “too ____ dumb to understand.”
With disunity in America at an all-time high, and unbridled “incivility” encouraged, violence that has already been erupting amongst the Lefties may continue to explode. Haley points out that this will only beget more violence from the right.
The existence of such a phenomenon in such an area of vital interest and concern, with its eventual effects upon the morals of the people and the national character and unity, is staggering in its potential effect. Its surface influence is reflected in the idiom of the street, in the repeated and pervasive comment that ‘you can’t believe a thing you read in the papers!’ Nor can this sweeping indictment of a once vaunted ‘free and independent’ press be swept aside as popular caprice or a momentary passion.
It is something of far deeper and more somber significance. It is a combination of the long frustrations of the little but honest people who want and seek truth, of resentment of propaganda and designed deception by those in power, of a sense of betrayal in past deed and action by those of influence and authority! More than that it is cumulative in force and effect. It is impervious to pious platitudes in political forum, press or pulpit. It is a sign of national disunity, the dangerous undertones of largely forgotten and inarticulate masses stirring with potential violence—one of the most historic, most natural and yet most terrifying reactions of people who have been denied the truth by illegitimate power. (Emp. added)
As new ugly revelations continue to explode across the political landscape indicating the abject corruption of the Obama presidency, whose administration was also illegally assisting via the FBI the much-anticipated Hillary Clinton presidency, we might suppose that J. Evetts Haley was a prophet. But deceit and corruption are simply a part of the Left’s DNA.
When men are once convinced that they are consistently being denied the truth essential to their survival, imagination alone is left with which to anticipate tomorrow, upon which to predicate their future. Even at its most adverse, an honest and healthy people with national unity solidly based on spiritual faith and morality can face and live with reality. With venality on the prowl, and corruption widely condoned if not an actual part of government policy, public apprehension feeds on imaginative fears, and the specter of the gods of wrath and violence hang over such unfortunate and uneasy lands.
Haley, the “Salty Texas Rebel” from the Staked Plains, is right on the mark. We, the honest little people, perhaps not understanding the depths of the Left’s depravity, or the twisted conniving of the Obama Administration, at least have enough common sense to smell a rat. This is why we threw out the politicians and hired Donald J. Trump—To Make America Great Again.
