Texas State Board of Education Testimony

Truth in Textbooks representatives testified at the Texas State Board of Education on Sept 11 where the SBOE heard testimony on removing items from the  Texas Essential Knowledge Skills.

There were many recommendations that were strongly opposed to by TNT and other groups.  Here are just a few:
1. Removal of the term “Judeo-Christian” from the standards
2. Removal of any references to Moses and the influence of Mosaic law into the forming of America’s legal system
3. Removal of the term “religious” from the list of influences on America’s founding
4. Removal of Arab countries resistance in recognizing Israel as a country as the major contributor to the current Israel-Arab conflict
5. Removal of the term “concept” and replaced with “theory” when it comes to describing “a free market system”
6. Removal of any references to the Verona Papers related to the McCarthy hearings in the 50’s
7. Removal of the identifying Taiwan and replacing it with the term that the Chinese have forced countries/companies to use, Republic of China (Taiwan). 
8.  Removal of multiple Founding Fathers that have been traditionally taught to students. 
9. Removal of the term “heroic” in Texas history books when discussing the men of the Alamo. 
10. Removal of the term “identify the positives and negative effects of cultural diffusion” (this allows multiculturalism to go unchallenged)
….and much more.  
Over 60 individuals testified during the hearing. Many progressive groups were represented speaking in support of some of the changes that would remove all references to Christianity. 
I’m pleased to report that so far the items addressed by TNT and other conservative groups may survive this first review and the items that were to be removed will remain…at this time.   
The SBOE is making changes to the proposed changes (adding back items that were removed) and will have one more public hearing on November 13 before any permanent changes are made. 
TNT will continue to monitor this and ask for support in making sure items of interest remain within the TEKS. 
 With Texas textbooks being purchased by other states, this victory will benefit children in many other states that choose Texas textbooks as their standard in the future.

Florida Seeking Help – Please Respond

BE A DOER, NOT A TALKER – PUSH BACK 

TNT  will be reviewing 5 social studies textbooks covering elementary school social studies, middle school U.S. History, world history, u.s. government, and High School U.S. History.   

We need 20-25 reviewers to begin reviewing the online books.  We would hope to begin the review by the end of September and will complete the reviews by the end of October.   

If you are hesitant to sign up because you haven’t reviewed textbooks for awhile or are afraid you have forgotten our procedures, the information below will allow you to review the TNT protocols and regain your currency and familiarity via YouTube videos with how to conduct the training.  

TNT is providing the Florida Citizens Alliance with this information in order to push back against the progressive agenda found in many of these textbooks.  Because of past efforts, a lawsuit has been brought against one of the Florida school districts for failing to abide by Florida state standards.  Without the effort of past TNT reviewers, this would not be happening.    

If you can help out, please email tnt.textbooks@gmail.com and indicate your particular area of interest and we will send out a Basecamp invitation to get everyone organized.   

Exciting News – Truth in Textbooks Moves Training to YouTube 

TNT is excited to announce a new training regime that will allow volunteers to complete their training in a far more efficient and expeditious manner. 

If you are interested in becoming a reviewer, this video will tell you how.  

 Click the YouTube video below.    

 TNT has been training volunteers as textbook reviewers since 2014 using conference calls primarily with assigned readings between each call.  

These conference calls occurred over a period of 2 months which stretched out the training which led to many people dropping out.

Audio problems, inevitable technical problems along with scheduling issues such as availability (along with my flying schedule)  added to the frustration felt by some. It was less than perfect but it was all that we had.  

Thanks to Dr Alfonsi who traveled to Texas earlier this month to record the videos, a series of 18 YouTube training sessions totaling a little under 5 1/2 hrs of instruction, TNT is now happy to rollout this training. 

At the conclusion of the self-paced training each person will still conduct a “mock review” as has been our practice in the past which will consist of 4 weeks. This will allow persons to condense the training from the previous 3 months to as little as 5 weeks or less!
We believe the quality of the training is superior to what was done before so we urge you to share this video with your friends who maybe interested.  Overview and FAQ about Truth in Textbooks (click on)   

RECURRENT TRAINING FOR PREVIOUSLY TRAINED REVIEWERS 

If you attended any our training in the past and are considering volunteering again in the near future, please consider writing to TNT at truthintextbooks@gmail.com to request the list of video links to the training.  This list is only available to those who have gone through the training previously so please indicate in your email when you attended training.    

We apologize for the delay in getting back to those who have expressed interest in becoming a volunteer or who wanted to start training in July.   We will be in touch with you personally and will send you the first link to begin the training.  You do not need to complete another survey to start your training.   

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR LIFE? YOU REALLY NEED TO ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION!

People Nowadays

This eye-opening video about our addiction to the Internet might just leave you speechless. I make my living on the Internet and for that reason, I try to limit the time that I spend online because I realize after a certain point it becomes a mindless activity. I can promise you that life does exist if you aren’t checking your phone every fifteen minutes for the latest updates or sitting in front of your computer all day long. My advice would be to step away from your Device of Delusion and get outside where you can Live, Love, Laugh, and Enjoy Life!

Odd, isn’t it, that 100 percent of the women coming forward with sexual assault and harassment stories decades after they supposedly took place are all connected,  in one way or another to the Democrats?

Asking the #MeToo Movement: Are only Democrat Women Sexually Assaulted and Harassed?

Judi McLeod imageBy Judi McLeod

The once silver-tongued Obama is not only losing his voice, he’s losing his rock star status and crowd support.

Odd, isn’t it, that 100 percent of the women coming forward with sexual assault and harassment stories decades after they supposedly took place are all connected,  in one way or another to the Democrats?  Take a look out over the horizon and you won’t find even one Republican victim of sexual assault or harassment coming forward during the Midterm Election campaign.
Could that be because the #MeToo movement only embraces Democrat Damsels in Distress?

Are sexual predators only attacking Democrats?

Is there no known antidote to stop them in their tracks?

That’ it’s only happening to Democrat-associated women is just one little detail never mentioned by the mainstream and social media.

In the midst of the ranting, raving and screaming backup for Christine Blasey Ford, about whom it is being said, she “doesn’t have a political bone in her body”, there’s an embarrassing little detail rarely, if ever, mentioned in the media:  fading rock star Barack Obama, the indisputable ‘Me, Myself and I, I,Guy’ drew a crowd of only 700 to his recent rally in Anaheim, California

To see how far the mighty has fallen, compare Obama’s 700 to President Donald Trump’s 20,000 at his rallies.

Not only is Ford dominating the news as Stormy Daniels did, for Ford,  outfoxing Republicans like the incredibly stupid Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, is akin to taking candy from a baby.  Evidence, her driving from California to D.C., reason for which is that she’s a nervous flyer.

Hey, Chuck! Flying to Washington, D.C. would bring her in to give testimony against Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh within hours.  Of course,  she then wouldn’t have been able to play her stalling game by not being available for the better part of a week.

“Reports have indicated Ford intends to drive cross-country from her California home to Washington, DC, a journey that will take a minimum of three days at best. (Deadline, Sept. 22, 2018)

“According to the New York Times, the date has not been set in stone as Ford’s lawyers and aides to Senator Charles E. Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, are planning to talk Sunday about the testimony.

“However, as of Saturday, the testimony has been penciled in for Thursday. If no deal is solidified, Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination could move ahead on Monday as scheduled.

“Ford has reportedly told friends she is uncomfortable in confined spaces, indicating a physical difficulty in making the trip by plane.”

For Ford being “uncomfortable in confined spaces” does not include being cradled in a Democrat one.
“Ford’s attorney, Debra Katz, called the earlier Friday deadline an attempt to “bully” her client. (Politico, Sept. 21, 2018
“Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family,” Katz wrote in an email.
“Democrats lashed out at Grassley for what their top member on the committee, Dianne Feinstein, also described as “bullying.” And Ford’s attorneys reminded Grassley on Friday night that while the GOP was accelerating the deadline for her to respond, the California-based professor was meeting with the FBI about threats she’d received since coming forward.

“The imposition of aggressive and artificial deadlines regarding the date and conditions of any hearing has created tremendous and unwarranted anxiety and stress on Dr. Ford,” Katz wrote. “Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the Committee is completely inappropriate.”

“Grassley’s office did not return a request for comment on the Friday night response from Ford’s attorneys.

“However, late Friday, Grassley tweeted: “Five times now we have granted extension for Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed with her desire stated one week ago that she wants to tell senate her story.  Dr Ford if you changed your mind say so so we can move on.  I want to hear your testimony. Come to us or we to you.”

“Minutes later, he added: “Judge Kavanaugh I just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed with the statement she made last week to testify to the senate.  She should decide so we can move on.  I want to hear her. I hope you understand. It’s not my normal approach to be indecisive.”

“Grassley followed with a candid lament that he was being outmaneuvered by Democrats: “With all the extensions we give Dr Ford to decide if she still wants to testify to the Senate I feel like I’m playing 2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra and [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer is the conductor.”

That’s because you are, Sen. Grassley.

Meanwhile while Ford and her cohorts are holding the stage front and center,  Obama seems to be resorting to the old standby of offence being the best defence at his small-crowd campaign rallies.

‘Obama snaps at young rally attendees: ‘I’m talking to you! You! Pay attention!’ was the American Mirror headline after Friday’s Philadelphia,Pa rally.  “Barack Obama wasn’t happy those young whipper snappers apparently weren’t hanging on his every word (about himself) on Friday.  “I’m talking to you, young people!” he snapped, pointing his finger with a stern look at some kids attending his rally for Pennsylvania Democrats.

“You! Pay attention!” he lectured with the air of a disappointed parent.

“During the Philadelphia appearance for Gov. Tom Wolf, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and several Democrat congressional candidates, Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself.  “In the roughly 33-minute remarks, the former president said “I” 56 times, “Me” 5 times, and “My” 4 times, talking about himself a total of 65 times, or once about every 30 seconds.

“At one point, he admitted he was losing his voice because he was talking so much.”The once silver-tongued Obama is not only losing his voice, he’s losing his rock star status and crowd support.

Is it really any wonder that the Dems are now out digging for gold in Democrat women sexually assaulted and harassed by Republican men?

November 6 will be here in
ONE MORE MONTH

A Nation of Sheep – Breeds a Government of Wolves !

Let’s Take a stand!!!

  • Borders : Closed….
  • The WALL built
  • Constitutionally limited Government
  • Adherence to the Bill of Rights
  • Put God back in our schools, If Muslims are allowed to pray so Should Christians!
  • Eliminate “Political Correctness”, call it as it is This Is America Free Speech is a right!
  • No Freebies to Illegal ALIENS
  • National E-Verify System
  • BIO METRIC identification & Tracking of all VISA Immigrants
  • Transparency
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Accountability

  • Drug Free : Make a drug screen mandatory for any one on welfare and/or food stamps and before receiving EBT cards!
                       (Even teachers must take a drug test before being hired.)

HERE IS WHAT THE SPLINTERED DEMOCRATIC AND DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST OF AMERICA (DSA) PARTY
WANT FOR AMERICA UNDER THE NAME OF SOCIALISM:

  • They want to abolishing the prison system.
  • They want to abolish I.C.E.
  • One candidate  wants an end to a cash bail system 
  • NO freebies to Non-Citizens!FROM THE DSA  Web Site: Those of us who declare ourselves socialists must reaffirm our radicalism, envision a truly revolutionary anti-capitalist future. Social democrats are celebrating the 200th birthday of Karl Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883), founder and theoretician of socialism.  

    Marxists employed the term “socialism” in place of “communism” by 1888 They are one in the same.  Many of our brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents died to keep this country from becoming a communist nation. Today we have an indoctrinated Millennial group who has little to no knowledge of the battles this an many other nations fought to prevent what is happening today from occurring.

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BECOME THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF AMERICA OR  DSA DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST OF AMERICA ( Socialism = Communist) THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY ALLOWS THESE PEOPLE TO RUN UNDER THE DEMOCRATIC LABEL & AND SUPPORT’s THEM!

    They are falling in line with Declared Socialist countries like: Laos, Vietnam, Cuba, China , Guyana, India, Boliva, Uruguay, North Korea, Ecuador!

    46 Democratic socialist candidates and two DSA-backed ballot measures have won their primaries in 2018

  •   4 for the U.S. House – The rest for state Office

  • 20 candidates this year in Texas who are affiliated with the DSA,

  •   8 Democrats In Pittsburgh, in this year’s midterm cycle sought the endorsement of the local D.S.A. chapter.

  •  4 Candidates Tulsa, Okla., willing to run as Democratic socialists 

THINK TWICE WHEN YOU ENTER THAT BALLOT BOX IN NOVEMBER
ESPECIALLY IN FLORIDA,
DO YOU REALLY WANT A COMMUNIST LED STATE GOVERNMENT!

The “Newspeak” of Orwell’s 1984 is here.

The Ravages of Leftist Thought Control

The “Newspeak” of Orwell’s 1984 is here.

On September 12, 2018 the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) posted an article in its official website, Twitter Ads Rejects Tweets for “Hateful Content.”
The CIS article noted:

Yesterday Twitter rejected four Center for Immigration Studies tweets for use in the Center’s Twitter Ads campaign, alleging hateful content. (Several others were approved.) All four tweets use the statutory phrases “illegal alien” or “criminal alien,” and all of the tweets referenced law enforcement, either at the border or in the interior. One of the tweets contained a powerful Daily Caller video showing illegal aliens in camouflage carrying large backpacks across the border unimpeded.

Two days later, on September 14th The Daily Caller posted a report updating the situation: Twitter Allows Center For Immigration Studies To Promote Tweets About Illegal Aliens That Were Previously Rejected.
Twitter apparently reversed its decision when Mark Krikorian, the Director of CIS, appeared on Fox News to discuss the issue.
Here is an excerpt from The Daily Caller article:  The four tweets that could not get promoted, but are still on Twitter, contained the terms “alien,” “illegal alien” or “criminal alien” along with reference to law enforcement, according to a statement from CIS Wednesday.

A promoted tweet is a normal tweet bought by advertisers that can have a greater outreach on people, according to Twitter’s website.

“After two days of media coverage and no response to our question on what caused the denial, Twitter has approved the tweets,” CIS Director of Communications Marguerite Telford told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Turns out media coverage transforms tweets with ‘hateful content’ into acceptable tweets. But what if the story is not covered by The Daily Caller and Fox News? Present social media policies promote inconsistent, secret filtering policies that can and do block what is often just one side of important public debates.”

CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday to discuss the promotion ban along with what the organization did to find out why its tweets were considered as hateful.

“We looked at them and they all had ‘illegal alien’ or ‘criminal alien’ in them,” Krikorian told Carlson. “And so we said, ‘That must be it.’ What we did is sent them a nice note, and said, ‘Please let us know specifically what’s hateful about this because other ones weren’t that you did accept money for.’”

While it is important to note that Twitter reversed its decision, there is no cause for joy but consternation that this happened at all.
Twitter is a widely used means of communication.  It has become a virtual town square and its managers have total control over who gets to stand on the “soapbox.”
As Twitter notes, A promoted tweet is a normal tweet bought by advertisers that can have a greater outreach on people. 
In other words, promoting a tweet is the equivalent of providing a megaphone to the person or advertiser to reach more people.  Consequently, denying the speaker the use of that megaphone muffles the message.  Americans have foolishly come to blame the widespread censorship of language as examples of “Political Correctness.”  This is a dangerous notion.  Political Correctness (PC) was originally sold to Americans as a way of being polite by not using insulting or humiliating language.
However, this has now morphed into a means of thought control through the control of language.
Humans think with words. When you eliminate words, you eliminate the thoughts that the words represent.  All that is required is that a term, such as “alien” be branded “hate speech” by an unknown arbiter of language, and it is scrubbed from the vernacular.
There is absolutely nothing fair or compassionate about this.
Last year I wrote an article about how this now threatens the very foundation of our nation, Language Wars: The Road to Tyranny Is Paved with Language Censorship.
Across the United States “Safe Spaces” have been created on college campuses that stifle free speech and debate.  My degree was in Communications Arts and Sciences.  I participated in debates in high school and college and had I not become a federal agent, I had given serious consideration to teaching debate on the college level.  Debate is a celebration of the First Amendment that creates a sort of free market for ideas, a form of intellectual capitalism, where the participants bring their ideas to the marketplace of public opinion where all sides can express their thoughts freely.
Through this process the ideas that have greater merit are likely to advance.  It is easier to promote bad ideas when there are no alternatives.  Hence, we have “Safe Spaces” that are anything but “safe.”  Twitter is not alone in this totalitarian method of stifling free speech.
The Associated Press (AP) has issued a Style Book to not only guide writers in consistent use of punctuation and footnoting, but in purportedly acceptable language.  “Illegal alien” is not deemed acceptable for AP and, as they advertise on their website, their Style Book can be found in boardrooms, classrooms and newsrooms across America.  Control of language, coupled with extreme surveillance of its citizens that included the installation of telescreens (television monitoring devices) in the citizens’ homes that broadcast a constant barrage of programming from the omnipresent “Big Brother” created the ultimate police state in Orwell’s 1984.
Today our cell phones and other devices that apparently eavesdrop on us, are far more intrusive than Orwell could have envisioned.
A detailed explanation of Newspeak is found in the following excerpt from the Appendix to Orwell’s novel, under the title The Principles of NewspeakWhile admittedly a bit lengthy, it provides a clear explanation and warning as to just how dangerous and insidious Newspeak and other such censorship is:

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc (English Socialist Party) but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought — that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc — should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. Its vocabulary was so constructed as to give exact and often very subtle expression to every meaning that a Party member could properly wish to express, while excluding all other meanings and also the possibility of arriving at them by indirect methods. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meanings whatever. To give a single example. The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as ‘This dog is free from lice’ or ‘This field is free from weeds’. It could not be used in its old sense of ‘politically free’ or ‘intellectually free’ since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed even as concepts, and were therefore of necessity nameless.

Quite apart from the suppression of definitely heretical words, reduction of vocabulary was regarded as an end in itself, and no word that could be dispensed with was allowed to survive. Newspeak was designed not to extend but to diminish the range of thought, and this purpose was indirectly assisted by cutting the choice of words down to a minimum.  Two years ago I wrote an analysis of the origins of eliminating the term “Alien” from discussions about immigration in my article,  Jimmy Carter: Originator of the Orwellian Term “Undocumented Immigrant.”

Not only did Carter alter the language used by immigration enforcement agents, he even ordered INS agents not to arrest illegal aliens during the Census in the population centers with the greatest number of illegal aliens.  Those areas tended to vote for Democratic candidates and would gain more seats in the House of Representatives and hence, more votes in the Electoral College by getting more illegal aliens counted.  He illegally harnessed immigration to skew the electorate by obstructing immigration law enforcement.
Most Americans don’t realize that the term DREAM Act is actually an acronym (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act).  The supposed hate word “Alien” became palatable when it could be linked to The American Dream.  This is sheer hypocrisy, but then this Orwellian use of language is not about ethics, but about thought control.  There is certainly nothing ethical about that!
The Immigration and Nationality Act, defines the term “Alien” as “Any person, not a citizen or national of the United States.”  There is no insult in that term or its definition, only clarity.  Rebels who stage a coup d’etat generally first seize the means of communication to control the flow of information.  Knowledge is power, and to strip the citizenry of its power, its access to information must be tightly controlled though censorship.  Between fake news and the implementation of control over language by the social media, America stands at the precipice of the loss of our freedoms and our way of life.
The Fourth Amendment has been gutted in the name of national security, even as the “War on Terror” that justified many of these measures, does not include secure borders or effective immigration law enforcement mandated by the 9/11 Commission.  In fact, the Left now seeks to abolish all immigration law enforcement to ostensibly protect the immigrants, leaving the U.S. vulnerable.
The question that must be asked is, are we more at risk at the hands of terrorists or at the hands of the Ministry of Truth?

WHAT DOES THE CONSTITUTION MEAN TO YOU?

What The U.S. Constitution Should Mean To Americans

Constitution Flag One StarToday is Constitution Day, time to really think about the U.S. Constitution.

On May 25, 1787, with a quorum of seven states present, our Founding Fathers began meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to craft a document to govern the new nation, as the Articles of Confederation (in effect beginning in 1781) were wholly inadequate to the task.

Eventually, there were 12 states attending and, after many debates, arguments and compromises, on September 17, the U.S. Constitution was signed and the process was declared: “Done in Convention, by the unanimous consent of the States present.”

As noted by many historians, the three powerful words at the start, “We the People,” affirms that our government exists to serve it citizens, something which has gone totally out of control.

So, what should the U.S. Constitution mean to all Americans?

As it guarantees our freedom, our liberty, our rights, every American should be concerned with how we have allowed our government to grow exponentially and our public servants to act more like rulers or masters (with virtually unlimited freedom to waste taxpayer money), avoid penalties “We the People” would gravely suffer for transgressions and spending more time, it seems, trying to get re-elected than doing their jobs.

Prayer in schoolThe U.S. Constitution is a document like no other. It is not a living breathing one that needs “interpretation.” It says what it says and means what it says.

For instance, the 1963 Supreme Court decision banning prayer in schools was unconstitutional. Period. The Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” Allowing prayer in school does NOT violate the Constitution. Prayer is simply something that occurs between the student and God. It has nothing to do with government and does not “establish a religion.”

We should also be wary of hate speech being allowed to be protected under free speech (i.e., think Kathy Griffin decapitating our President), as well as basically allowing protest riots, when peaceful assembly is what is protected (i.e., unruly mobs “protesting” the 2016 election results). Examples are ad nauseam.

Another example is a citizen’s unalienable right to bear arms which “shall not be infringed,” yet there are cities and states that have breached this Constitutionally guaranteed right. When there is a tragic mass shooting, those who wish to disarm law-abiding people attempt to take their guns or limit them, instead of addressing the real problem. Think about it…when there is an auto accident with a drunk driver, cars are not blamed, people are. When someone is stabbed, a knife is not to blame, the person welding the knife is charged. And, as ridiculous as it sounds, when a person steals something the object being stolen is never at fault…it is the person.

Invasion of privacy has become the order of the day. Due process can be thwarted.

Thomas JeffersonCitizens of America, the U.S. Constitution should mean everything to you. Our Founding Fathers worried about how future generations would safeguard their freedom.

Consider what Thomas Jefferson so wisely said, “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large.”

Do not be swayed by smooth-talking politicians who promise everything because all they will enact are more and more programs (supposedly for our benefit) requiring more and more taxpayer money to fund or adding to an already massive $20,000,000,000,000 (Trillion) debt.

That is NOT the job of our Federal government, the duties of which are limited BY the Constitution and have been violated more times than anyone can count.

The only body that has the power to make laws at the national level is Congress, yet virtually every agency created by our elected representatives also have the power to enact and enforce laws, whether they are called laws or regulations or something different.

Flag and Statue of LibertyThe U.S. Constitution was the first of its kind and is unlike any other.

No other country on the planet enjoys the freedom that we have, but we must protect that freedom! If we do not, we will have Anarchy, or, perhaps, allow our great country to slide into Socialism where the only thing the “people” share is misery.

We must stand up to politicians, idiotic celebrities, and others who do or say anything they can to bypass, subvert or destroy our freedom and, most of all, our sacred document.

For my money, elected politicians or appointed state or federal judges who violate the Constitution should simply be immediately expelled with no pay and no benefits as they have violated their oath of office.

John AdamsThe United States Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land and it must be followed, or our freedom is lost.

Know your rights.

Protect your freedom.

Learning what it is all about is the key. As John Adams proclaimed, “Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.”

There are many paths to educate yourself and your family. Learn the basics by watching the award-winning In Search of Liberty Constitution movie, and then, for in-depth study, enroll in a Constitution Boot Camp from Building Blocks for Liberty or join KrisAnne Hall’s Liberty First University.

Pelosi Reignites Obama Push To Shut Down Huge Chunk of Coal Industry

 


President Barack Obama talks to women of Congress, including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on March 12, 2014.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is renewing the Obama administration’s war on coal by supporting efforts to attack coal use in America.
On Thursday, the California Democrat criticized the coal industry during a speech at the Global Climate Action Summit in California, NTK Network reported.  “Under President Obama, we went on to pass the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act in the House. But we were stopped in the Senate by the coal industry,” Pelosi said. “For this and other reasons, I’m so grateful to Michael Bloomberg’s ‘Beyond Coal’ initiative working with the Sierra Club. It is so essential.”
On its website, “Beyond Coal” says it wants to “replace dirty coal with clean energy by mobilizing grassroots activists in local communities to advocate for the retirement of old and outdated coal plants and to prevent new coal plants from being built.” Among its objectives is to shutter a third of the nation’s coal plants by 2020.
“Coal will go away in any place where there’s a free market, for sure, because the market just forces that, the economics force it,” he said, “It does not help that our federal government is opposed to some rational things and is putting out some of the drivel that they do.”
Pelosi’s most recent criticism of the coal industry was not the first time in recent weeks Pelosi attacked coal.
In an August speech at the Public Policy Institute of California she praised herself for her efforts against a small coal plant that operated in Washington, D.C., The Daily Caller reported.
“And it really is a moral issue if you believe as I do that this is God’s creation we have to be good stewards of it,” Pelosi said. “We have evangelicals and others with us — er, some, those who believe in God’s creation. So, in any case, this was a big thing for us. I had to fight some Democrats. Senator Byrd had a coal-powered plan fueling the Capitol, you know … and that’s gonna go, with all due respect to West Virginia we’re not gonna have a coal-powered plant floating around.”
Pelosi’s view is contrasted with that of President Donald Trump, who has strongly supported the coal industry, and at a recent rally had a coal miner join him on stage, according to The Daily Caller. Trump was telling the story of a miner who spoke to him about the revitalization of the coal industry.  “He said, ‘Sir, what you’ve done for the coal industry is incredible. Because we were dead, and now we’re vibrant again,’” Trump recalled.  The man then came on stage and talked about how under former President Barack Obama “the coal industry absolutely had the boot of government on its throat.”
“Many, many jobs were lost,” said the miner, whose name was not announced. “And many towns were destroyed by this. It was just a horrible thing. Horrible suffering happened in this country. Really for made-up reasons, I think. And what your administration does — has done — is bringing us back to life.”  In 2016, as part of his effort to change America’s energy sources, Obama pushed for a reduction in coal and other fossil fuels, The Washington Post reported. He said his administration would “push to change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers and our planet.”
That tone was emulated in the 2016 presidential campaign by Democrat Hillary Clinton who in March 2016 said, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business,” according to Politico.

JUST WHAT AMERICAN DOES NOT NEED A REPLACEMENT FOR COMMON CORE U.N. SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION

Education Secretary DeVos Signs On To
Globalist UN Education Agenda For U.S.

  By: Alex Newman
Published : September 10, 2018

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos signed on to a radical global “declaration” that calls for, among other absurdities, brainwashing children to believe in the United Nations-backed ideology of total government known as “‘sustainable development.” In fact, the pseudo-treaty inked by Trump’s education chief suggests that the purpose of schooling is to indoctrinate children with the right “values” and teach them to be obedient worker drones.

Under the un-American vision agreed to last week in Argentina, the governments purported to commit their nations to globalized brainwashing under the guise of “education.” To be clear, this is a dangerous policy document that, if implemented, will contribute to finalizing the destruction of traditional education in America and replacing it with a total indoctrination program aligned with the systems of some of the world’s most murderous autocracies. Americans should be outraged.

The declaration, produced at the first ever “Education Working Group” of the Group of 20 (G20) network of governments and dictatorships, was titled “‘Building consensus for fair and sustainable development.” How free nations can build “consensus” on “education” with murderous Islamist and Communist regimes that indoctrinate all children under their rule with evil ideologies of oppression was not made clear.

The whole education vision signed by the 20 governments and tyrants revolves around the United Nations Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This extremist document, which demands national and international wealth redistribution as well as brainwashing of all children, is basically a road-map to global totalitarianism. It was literally developed by mass-murdering dictatorships. But it has never ratified by the U.S. Senate, as required by the Constitution of treaties.

The G20 education document is wild in terms of what it openly promotes. “Education is the foundation of personal development as it provides children, youth and adults with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary to reach their full potential,” declared the education ministers (emphasis added), including some whose regimes torture and slaughter opponents of communism or sharia law.

They also demanded more data-gathering and -mining. “We recognize the value of policies based on evidence and the importance of having robust and comprehensive learning assessment systems and data in order to measure progress and learning outcomes, to help ensure quality education for all at all stages of life,” the document says, one of many references to government-provided “education” from cradle to grave informed by perpetual, Orwellian vacuuming up of student data.

The agreement also demands further globalization of education, a process that has been underway for many years. For instance, it calls for “international investment in education,” a theme consistent with the ongoing globalization of education under the UN’s extremist “education” agency known as UNESCO. “We acknowledge the role of existing and potential international mechanisms for financing education,” the document continues.

They also vowed to push it further. “We commit to strengthening international cooperation… and developing joint initiatives at bilateral, regional and multilateral levels,” the mostly unelected education czars said. In fact, the document goes on to say it explicitly: “We commit to facilitating the internationalization of education.” That means education policy for American children, decided by foreign governments and tyrants, as well as dictator clubs such as the UN. The signers, including DeVos, agreed to “promote the development of curricula … which have a strong focus on … values and attitudes.” They also committed to “foster the inclusion of non-cognitive skills such as socio-emotional skills across the curriculum,” which is basically educrat psycho-babble to conceal a program of psychological conditioning aiming to bring about the values and attitudes demanded by the establishment in all children.

Finally, the education chiefs vowed to “provide education that supports better integration of common values like … sustainable development.” As far as the nebulous, totalitarian concept relates to education, the UN has already made clear that it considers real education and educated people a threat to its grotesque notions of “sustainability.”

“Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes,” explains a UN “toolkit” for global “sustainable” education, ‘which is still posted online at UNESCO’s website. “In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.”

The declaration also undermines true human rights — free speech, freedom of the press, gun rights, and other God-given rights — and promotes the communist-inspired notion of government-granted privileges as rights. “We stress that access to quality education is a human right,” the education ministers declared, as if mass-murdering communist tyrants had the same vision of “quality education” as liberty-minded Christian parents in America.

Common Core Diva Lynne Taylor, a respected education researcher, was among the voices sounding the alarm. “DeVos’s global roots are showing, as they have been since she was sworn into office. The question is exactly what will she do with all the ideas, policies, and, the damning Declaration for not only education, but our very freedoms,” Taylor warned. “I can tell you we all need to brace for impact.”

Trump should fire DeVos — and not just for participating in this dangerous effort to further globalize education and standardize the indoctrination of children worldwide. But rather than replacing her, Trump should work with Congress to shut down the entire unconstitutional department and get the feds completely out of education. The alternative is the continued subversion of education in America — and ultimately, the death of freedom.

U.S Refugee Program

Dire warnings at The Atlantic about the imminent collapse of US refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2018

Litany of layoffs!

Priscilla Alvarez writing at The Atlantic runs through a partial list of the nine federal refugee contractors and tells us how many staffers have been fired because of that mean old Donald Trump not sending them enough refugee paying clients.

Miliband in Manhattan

Doing well by doing good! Writer Alvarez features the International Rescue Committee.  Bet she doesn’t know its head honcho, Brit David Miliband, makes a cool nearly $700,000 annual salary.  He won’t be losing his job!

There really isn’t much new here (like so many of the fear-mongering stories the lapdog media is publishing these days, there isn’t much here that you haven’t heard over the last few months), however, it is worth posting for a couple of reasons.

First, we are reminded that the US State Department is rumored to be preparing to cut one of the nine federal contractors completely off the federal dole!

Which will it be?

My guess is that they might cut out the smallest—The Ethiopian Community Development Council.  It surely won’t be the giants: International Rescue Committee or the US Conference of Catholic Bishops!

It could be one of the others (besides ECDC) that is almost COMPLETELY funded by you through your tax dollars.  See the list below.***

Here is The Atlantic headline:

America’s System for Resettling Refugees Is Collapsing

And, here is a mention of one of the nine getting the ax:

Part of the current downsizing has come about as a result of a State Department order last December that said agency offices handling fewer than 100 refugees in fiscal year 2018 would not be authorized to resettle new arrivals. The department also warned that it expects to eliminate one or more agencies from the refugee-resettlement process in fiscal year 2019, effectively slimming down the resettlement operation—and reducing its ability to quickly staff back up, should a future administration expand the nation’s refugee ceiling.

Mary Giovagnoli

Mary Giovagnoli is the director of the Refugee Council USA, the LOBBYING arm of the refugee industry in Washington.

“Every time an office has to shut its doors, the impact isn’t just about the initial people affected,” said Mary Giovagnoli, the executive director of Refugee Council USA, a coalition of 24 nongovernmental agencies focused on refugee protection.

“Once that office has closed, the people with the expertise and the knowledge of working with particular groups have to find other jobs, find other work, and it’s not necessarily going to be in refugee resettlement. We start to lose the skills and capacity, the more you do that, the more you’re likely to lose the critical infrastructure.”

 

As I have reported previously, and don’t doubt me….

…They will “staff back up” in a heartbeat as soon as Donald Trump is no longer in the White House.

And, that is why it is vitally important that this administration makes major PERMANENT reforms in the program NOW.

And, here is the second reason I’m posting this:

We learn that Senators Grassley and Feinstein told the Trump Administration to follow the law and hold required “consultations” with Congress. The Refugee Act of 1980requires consultation with the House and Senate Judiciary Committees as I have pointed out here most recently.

However, the decision about how many refugees will be admitted is the President’s alone. 

Alvarez continues:

What remains true is that support for refugees is a bipartisan issue. Members of Congress have recently chimed in, relaying their concern about the lack of discussion between lawmakers and the administration about the refugee cap. In August, Senators Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein demanded that the administration continue collaborating with lawmakers to set a figure, as is custom.

See the Grassley/Feinstein letter here.  Go here for the whole Atlantic story.

What a joke!

Now they want consultation when for at least the last decade the consultation was a sham.  It was a cursory little meeting where some State Department bureaucrats went to the Hill to meet with a couple of lawmakers/staff in a closed-to-the-public setting.

In fact, the law requires public hearings prior to the beginning of the fiscal year that have never happened since I’ve followed the program (11 years).  A rare hearing was held after October 1.

They don’t want real hearings because they have wanted to keep the whole program running in a secretive manner, that is until Donald Trump came along!

And, one more time on the “bipartisan support” for higher numbers of refugees.

The Republicans are the Chamber of Commerce Republicans who want more refugees for cheap labor for their big business donors—meatpackers, other food processing companies, manufacturing and hospitality (maids and janitors for hotels!).

The Dems of course see the refugees as their future voter base!  And, to heck with the average American taxpayer who pays for it all, and lives next door to it!

 

***These below are the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors.

You might be sick of seeing this list almost every day, but a friend once told me that people need to see something seven times before it completely sinks in, so it seems to me that 70, or even 700 isn’t too much!

And, besides I have new readers every day.

The present US Refugee Admissions Program will never be reformed if the system of paying the contractors by the head stays in place and the contractors are permitted to act as Leftwing political agitation groups, community organizers and lobbyists paid on our dime!

And, to add insult to injury they pretend it is all about ‘humanitarianism.’

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees into your towns and cities and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  And, get them registered to vote eventually!

From my most recent accounting, here.  However, please see that Nayla Rush at the Center for Immigration Studies has done an update of their income!

WHY HAVE THE DEMOCRATA AND RINO REPUBLICANS REACHED THE LEVEL THEY ARE AT TODAY WITH SOCIALISM KNOCKING ON THEIR DOOR?

Web Master;

A must read, it will educate on how the socialist got their start, the tricks they used to get into Office, what teams they have built since getting there, and what their direction is today.  Yes, this was in 2009, but remember this was the big push for Socialism under Barack Obama, we have learned a lot, now we have to stop it.

  • Stop sign number 1 was the 2016 Presidential election,

  • Stop Sign number 2 in the mid term Election 2018, we MUST keep the House and the Senate.

  • Stop Sign number 3 is the 2020 presidential election.

    If we accomplish these goals we will go a long way to putting the brakes on Socialism in America, and just possibly pass a better world on to our children and grand children.

    Please take the time to read.

T DIDN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT

By Senator H.L “Bill” Richardson [ret.]

I’m a conservative who has been active in government. Because of that, a number of acquaintances have recently asked me, “Senator, how did we ever get into the political mess we’re in?”

Frankly, I’d rather not take the time to tell them because there is no simple answer— However, I try anyway. Fact is, after I explain the facts, most don’t get it. They rarely grasp the consequences of what I’m telling them — They don’t have the background to comprehend the consequences of what I’ve just told them. It’s a rare bird who asks the important question “what can I do, or, is there a good cause that I can donate to?”

No mater what the response, I have to tell them anyway. Why? Because the Scripture tells me that if I know the answer, I should give them an ear full. In Ezekiel 3:18, the prophet Ezekiel was told to inform the people to shape up or else. The Lord commanded him to tell the impudent and stubborn children, both the good and the bad ones, to repent and ask for forgiveness. God told Ezekiel that if he didn’t tell them, their blood was on his hands. What was good advice for Ezekiel was meant for all of us today. If we know and don’t tell, the blood is on our hands as well.

That’s why I’m writing this article so when the next person asks, I tell them to look it up on my Blog, www.SENHLR.BLOGSPOT.COM and think about it. Maybe if they read it over a few times, they might get it and get busy.

It’s a tough story to tell because it didn’t happen overnight but happen it did! Ignoring God’s directions and being a stiff necked people, we’re now in deep, deep trouble. Robert Louis Stevenson once said, “Sooner or later in life, we all sit down to a banquet of consequences.”Well, we’re at the banquet and we’re suffering the consequences of having denied God’s directions for a good life and a trip to eternity.

There are many reasons but this article is about the political complacency that affects most Americans. The vast number of our citizens have been happy the way we all live and aren’t interested in changing anything, or doing much about politics. Slowly but surely, they have drifted away from knowing the vital role God played in this nations birth. Therefore, after paying scant attention to the mechanics of American politics, most Americans have little understanding or interest in how it has been cleverly changed. Most have been too busy to think about it and can’t imagine “why anyone would ever want to change it anyway”. Comfortable with the attitude of “If it ain’t broke why bother to fix it!” — and, forgetting the statement that “the price of liberty is eternal vigilance,” complacency has pushed us to the cusp of losing big chunks of our income, our property and our personal freedom.

The second reason is that there are political activists who don’t like “our way of life’ and for over a century, have been working diligently to turn us into another godless European socialist state — or worse.

“Well, you may ask, “How did this all happen?” It is difficult to cram a century of activity into a short article, but I’ll try to give the highlights of how the socialists have gotten us in this bureaucratic mess and now have the power to push us over the cliff. Let’s first revue some important historical facts.

Theodore Roosevelt, one our most popular and articulate Presidents, said at the very beginning of the twentieth Century that our destiny as a nation was being threatened. He excoriated some American intellectuals who were espousing what they called “a new morality.” Emphatically and without equivocation he stated, “There are those who believe that a new modernity demands a new morality. What they fail to consider is the harsh reality that there is no such thing as a new morality. There is only one morality.”

He went on to state “There is only true Christian ethics over against which stands the whole of paganism. If we are to fulfill our great destiny as a people, then we must return to the old morality, the sole morality.”

Roosevelt saw the beginnings of the moral and intellectual slippage and it bothered him greatly. He saw some college academicians advocating a “new morality” embodying atheism, evolution, and socialist materialism. Our twenty sixth president then emphatically said, “All those blatant sham reformers, in the name of new morality, preach the old, old vice and self indulgence which rotted out first, the moral fiber and then even the external greatness of Greece and Rome.”

Tough stuff, hardly what today’s political liberal sophists would publicly say much less believe. Not many paid attention to Roosevelt’s prophetic warnings. The ethics of these “new moralists” flowed primarily from the theories of two atheistic authors; the now 150 year old, 1859 “scientific” evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin; detailed in his book “Origin of Species,” and, the 1848 socialist “scientific” concepts in Karl Marx’s Das Kapital, and Communist Manifesto. Darwin and Karl’s theories became quickly the ‘new thing” for a number of American academics who, not only accepted as truth, but, quickly began to advocate as scientific fact to their students.

Over the last 150 years, both Marx and Darwin have been thoroughly discredited and debunked by modern science, logic and time. However, both fallacies were taking hold at the turn of the 1900’s. These “new moralists” were becoming increasingly vocal on our college campuses and in the national labor union movement. It didn’t take long before they were demanding their “new scientific” ideas should become implemented politically. They began their maiden political voyage by attempting to elect their candidates under the socialist banner. They were unsuccessful and their numbers and influence remained small.

They, at first, had made the mistake of trying to explain how their atheistic, materialistic, and collectivist political schemes worked — concepts such as governmental ownership of all businesses and property. These were wild ideas at the time — diametrically opposite to the way Americans thought and therefore, were not only rejected, but scoffed at. The vast majority of our citizens were happy with personal liberty, ownership of private property, constitutional government, free enterprise and politics implemented through the established two party system.

Up to the beginning of the twentieth Century, the nation’s ethics were decidedly Christian based — 90% of the citizenry proudly called themselves Christians and approved of it being discussed in our public schools. Students were instructed on why and how the Constitution was written and who were the Godly men who did so. Students were instructed to memorized passages from their fore-fathers speeches and recite them before the class. Christmas carols were learned and joyfully sung in our public schools. Bible verses were memorized and recited in class. Even the United States Supreme Court, after years of voluminous study, declared in 1898 that America was decidedly a Christian nation.

Patrick Henry emphatically stated, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been offered asylum, prosperity, and freedom to worship here.”
Americans became very comfortable with our good life, our two party system — only a few ever thought about wanting to change it. “Why would anyone want anything else?” — was the national attitude.

In Europe however, the socialists were making some headway in the labor union movement, promoting their Marxist, anti capitalist, hate the rich, divide the wealth, propaganda. The English Fabian socialist movement grew and captured the interest of some of the British intellectuals, such as Bertrand Russell and George Bernard Shaw.

At the turn of the twentieth century, a well organized radical by the name of Lenin, put wheels under the international world socialist movement. He directed a tiny minority of well organized communists in subverting and overthrowing the Russia’s Czarist government. He set up what was soon to become a socialist dictatorship of the proletariat. In so doing, Lenin developed a financial base and an international platform for the promotion of world socialism through agitation, subversion, and propaganda. Lenin believed that if subversion worked in capturing Russia, why not anywhere else? After the First World War, the leftist movement wanted to become more politically active in the United States. Lenin was an excellent organizer, and he and other socialist leaders such as Norman Thomas, realized that it was an impossible task to sell their bad tasting political medicine to the vast majority of Americans. Lenin wrote extensively on how not to sell socialism, calling left-wingers who tried to explain socialism an “infantile disorder.” In essence, he told the faithful, don’t try to sell the details of how the socialist system works, if you do, you’ll scare people away. They will quickly see how all power is centralized in the hands of a centralized government and in the hands of a powerful few. Just tell the masses that socialism is wonderful and that it promises equality for all. Safe your breath trying to explain how socialism works, make headway condemning the inequities of capitalism.

Norman Thomas, an early leader in the American socialist movement, promoted the concept that Americans would “never knowingly adopt socialism but, under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.” The socialist movement decided there were three areas of extreme importance for them to penetrate and influence. Since human beings are nothing more than graduate animals, all humans were just another accident of nature. What they hear and read control all their actions so — control the avenues of mass communications and you can program the beasts to react like Pavlov’s dogs. That meant that the media, education and politics became their prime areas of conquest.

The left then wisely abandoned attempts to sell their socialist programs as a third political party— deciding that there was more fertile ground within the two party system running as “liberals” and “progressives.” They soon found it wasn’t very difficult to do so — as long as they kept their mouths shut on the glories of socialism. At the beginning of the Twentieth Century, the Democrat’s had a weak national political party, eager for any new members. The left seized the opportunity, registered as Democrats, called themselves “progressives” and went to work within the Democrat party.

They were well aware that both parties are open to any one who wants to join, with no ideological strings attached — no platform one must adhere to, no specific issues one must accept to be a member. All one had to do was register to vote, be of age, no felonious record and, if caring to run for office, have enough money to file for candidacy. There is no political litmus test in either party in order to be a member or a candidate. Socialists found it easy to register, and run for office as a Democrat; just sublimate their ideology and then campaign around any popular issue in order to get elected. Say what ever works in order to win the office, then legislate as they jolly well please once elected. The end justifies the means was their motto and moral guide, do whatever it takes to win — lying was never a problem unless caught.

PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION. IT’S THE GUTS OF HOW THE LEFT HAS GAINED SUCH OUT OF PROPORTION CONTROL OF POLITICS WITH A SUCH A MINORITY OF VOTERS.

The left-wing political leadership recognized that, by themselves, they were only a tiny percentage of the American population, never enough in numbers to win elections. However, small as they were, they were organized and they had a plan, a grand scheme to socialize America! They knew where they wanted to go but how to get there was the question! Patient gradualism was the answer.

Studying the mechanics of American politics, they soon recognized that, on the average, only fifty percent of all adult Americans ever bothered to register to vote. ONLY HALF! Then, in the primary elections, where the two parties choose their candidates, again, ONLY HALF of those who took the time to register even bothered to participate. So, only ONE OUT OF EVERY FOUR Americans actually vote in primary elections where candidates for the general election are selected. It’s quite a shock to realize that three out of every four Americans have no say-so in the selection of primary candidates. THAT’S NOT ALL!!! … Add to those facts, multiple candidates run in primary elections, it is not uncommon for five to ten candidates to seek the same office for each party; thereby splitting the vote even farther. This is especially true when no incumbent is running for re-election, or when every ten years, new seats are created by reapportionment and the office is considered an “open seat”. [More in a later column on how the games are played in reapportionment]

Therefore, a small organized percentage of voters could nominate and elect their candidate in primary elections since multiple candidates inevitably seek the same office. The following is an actual example of how a small minority can win a major California State Senate office. The registration heavily favored one of the major parties.

District population approximately 600,000
Those who could register to vote 400,000
Those who bothered to register 235,000
Total who voted in primary election 120,000
Dominate party primary vote 70,000
Lesser party primary vote 50,000
Eight candidates sought the major party nomination and the winning candidate gained 16,000 of the 70,000 votes cast; the other seven candidates split the remaining 54,000.

The primary winner won handily in the general election because of the registration advantage. He easily gained the Senate seat and served for 22 years. He gained leadership and helped elect many others of like mind. Is this race an exception? No! It happens all the time. Realize the significance of only 16,000 votes out of potentially 400,000 who could have participated. Think about it. Is it any wonder that a small dedicated minority of voters could have a disproportionate impact on our government when three out of four Americans don’t even register or bother to take part in primary elections —- in the very important process of selecting who their candidates might be? Think long and hard about it!!!

The left saw that in local elections for school boards, city council, supervisory races, a even much smaller numbers of votes could affect the outcome. With an organized minority of fellow activists, left wing candidates could, and have won local offices. Once elected, and establishing a base of operations as an incumbent office holder, it’s much easier to develop important name identity — therefore, making it much easier to move up, step by step, to higher office, such as state representatives and state senators. Then, at a later opportunity, to Congress and the US Senate. Many a national left-wing Congressman and Senator has successfully followed this upward path and are now in national office. Study the careers of Democrat Congressman George Miller and Henry Waxman as good examples.

Once elected, even to the smallest seat, the socialist becomes an active part of the movement; committed to help promote the socialist cause, and helping others succeed. They effectively use their office to hire those of like mind, train staff, raise funds and gradually introduce, bit by bit, socialist legislation. For years and years, the good socialist activist moves upwards to one higher office after another — that is, if he or she remains a good soldier.

The socialists, in Democrat or Republican garb, believe that any method that achieved socialist power is “ethical.” As mentioned before, “the end justifies the means” becomes their motto and method of operation. Deception and lying became the tools of their trade. To call someone a “lying socialist” is a redundancy.

During the early 1900’s, the socialist base within the Democrat party was still too tiny to elect their numbers to many offices; they needed to attract additional support. Now, clothed as liberals, they increased their numbers by wooing small disgruntled and politically isolated segments of the population, offering them promises of future political advantage for their special and often extreme interests. Knowing, that by adding small segments, their combined numbers could add up enough votes to win primary elections. They first successfully wooed segments of the union movement and later became the dominate factor in the union leadership. Then, over the years, adding little segments one at a time, they captured support from the homosexual community by sympathizing with their “gay” activities. They attracted anti-war pacifists, disgruntled feminists, extreme environmentalists, and any other dissident group that could be wooed with future promises of legislative support and jobs. Adopting Marxist “class action” agitation, they pandered to any group they could exploit and bring on board.

During the growth of their move toward power, the left wing socialist leadership wisely kept these dissident segments in the background, separated and undercover, appealing to each special interest directly, and then, only to each one’s special interest. They knew there would be difficulties if they ever brought them all together, for they certainly didn’t want to have large meetings of rank and file teamsters union members with the “gay” community nor the elderly with anti-war activists. They were especially clever keeping these new “friends” out of sight of the old line Democrats.

The great depression of the 1930’s brought the Democrats into national power at all levels of government, including an active segment of the “left – wing.” However, the majority of the Democrat legislators elected during the 1930’s and 1940’s were still traditional Americans in their ethics and values. However, a few old-line Democrats saw trouble brewing and the shift in leadership taking place within their own party. The old time Democrat found out later, rather than soon enough, when he found himself discouraged and gerrymandered out of his seat, replaced by a young leftist.

Over many years, the “extreme leftist” control over the inner workings of the Democrat party structure increased dramatically. Working together and directing these organized minorities during the nineteen fifties and sixties, the leftists had elected sufficient numbers to take control of the larger industrialized states.
Being an organized minority, it wasn’t too difficult for the more radical to gain positions of leadership within the majority party, thereby controlling the selection of committee chairmen. Again, a minority controlling the majority. [More on this subject in a later column.}

While in political office, during the 1970’s and 1980’s, I saw the left grasp control over the political fortunes of the Democrat’s. On a first hand basis, I sadly watched it all happen —traditional American Democrats eased out of office and out of leadership. Today, the socialists, although still a numerical minority, are the dominant voice in elected leadership, especially in heavily populated states. They effectively and systematically eliminated conservative Democrat office holders within their ranks. Because the Left now controls leadership, they control candidate funding, thereby dominating those who wish to be elected and effectively leveraging all Democrat incumbents to the left, especially those who wish to stay in office.

The leftist socialists, over the decades, have developed an effective political farm system. They, like major league baseball, have organized a farm system of local left-wing politicians, governmental workers, legislative staffers and Democrat consultants who they can count on to run for any vacated office. The upper echelon controls the money and effectively picks who moves up the ladder.

Over the past fifty years, controlling the vast wealth created through taxation, they have built a huge federal, state and local bureaucracy, which not only employs their own kind but implements a wealth of programs that reflects the wishes of their base, the unions, environmentalists, the gays, the feminists, abortionists, the anti war pacifists, etc. Through laws, they have dramatically increased their power and numbers and have done what Norman Thomas predicted would happen.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.

Is all lost? Not by a long shot.

The leftists are increasingly having problems within their own Democrat ranks.
The dissident splinter groups they’ve attracted and wooed began to make demands in the 1980’s and 1990’s. They had contributed to the Democrat victories, now they wanted their reward. They wanted more of their own openly elected to office and they wanted their issues enacted into law. Instead of being splinter groups kept in the closet, they demanded to be heard, and their wishes subsequently become part of our laws.

They got their wish and, they the dissonant, are now involved in helping run the Democrat party. The tail is now wagging the old “Democrat” donkey. The anti-war, pro -abortion, environmental extremists, anti-gun, soft on crime, big spending liberals, feminists and deviants of both sexes are calling the political tune and are marching hand in hand with the Democrat San Francisco leadership in gay parades.

A large body of old rank and file Democrats are finally scratching their heads and wondering, “What’s going on?” Many of them hesitatingly abandoned the jackass and climbed aboard the elephant when Reagan was in charge but would have nothing to do with the RINO’s the Republican party has offered them in recent elections.

Fortunately, a growing number of worried Americans are becoming aware of how it all happened. Trouble is, most know little about what to do about it.
Outside of trying to inform their fellow Americans, there are many irritated and disturbed Americans anxious to do something —but what? [ More about
what to do in the next article I write for my blog ] We must remember, millions of Americans are waking up, still holding to core traditional and religious
values, and holding their nose to the political corruption that surrounds us. When properly informed and given good leadership, they will work diligently to see the left in both parties are routed out and that we return to our traditional morals and Constitutional government.

There is a truism in economic circles, “bad money drives out good.” The same thing is true in politics. Bad people drive out good ones. In the Democrat party that fact is holding true. Bad Democrats are driving out good ones. In rural America, the trend is decidedly towards a return to basic American values. Who would have believed forty years ago, that below the Mason Dixon Line, the South would turn Republican? Or that rock-ribbed Republican New Englander’s would tolerate Barney Frank or Ted Kennedy in office?

The left hasn’t gained total control, for if they had, they’d have made it a “crime” for me to write what I have just written. There is little time and means to turn it all around and get the buggers out of government —they are still a minority but so are the Christians. They’re organized and in control, and we are not. I know it’s possible to defeat the left, and so do they.

The difference is they are active in politics while Christians are just waking up to the responsibility. An awakened Christian citizenry terrifies the left. That is why, when recently challenged, and confronted, the thin veneer of gossamer wing civility rubs off for all to see. We are now starting to openly witness how uncivil and uncouth these pagans really are when threatened. It’s a great complement they pay us when they lose their cool and vulgarly attack our character and beliefs. Let’s look forward to more of it —it means we’ll be winning.

Re: Colin Kaepernick and Nike’s “Just Do It” Campaign

Dear Chairman Parker,

On behalf of the more than 241,000 law enforcement officers represented by our Association
across the country, I write to you to condemn in the strongest possible terms your selection of
Colin Kaepernick for Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign. Mr. Kaepernick is known, not as a
successful athlete, but as a shallow dilettante seeking to gain notoriety by disrespecting the flag
for which so many Americans have fought and died.

The inclusion of Mr. Kaepernick in Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign also perpetuates the
falsehood that police are racist and aiming to use force against African Americans and persons
of color. In reality, officers across the nation risk their lives not only protecting the athletes
featured in Nike’s various campaigns, but also serve aspiring athletes across the country who
use the Nike brand, through the thousands of Police Athletic Leagues, Boys and Girls Clubs
and Big Brother/Big Sister programs where our officers donate their time and energy. They
deserve to have the respect and full support of corporate citizens like Nike

.
Adding to the insult is the image of Mr. Kaepernick from the campaign featuring the quote
“Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” The fact that Mr. Kaepernick
is no longer a starting NFL player does not equate to him being someone who has “sacrificed
everything”. To truly understand what it means to “believe in something” and “sacrifice
everything”, you should look to Arlington National Cemetery, or to the National Law
Enforcement Officers’ Memorial in Washington, D.C., or to the trauma unit of a military
hospital. The brave men and women of every race and color buried there, memorialized there,
healing there, believed in this nation and our flag and exemplify the true meaning of
“sacrifice”.

In featuring Mr. Kaepernick in the “Just Do It” campaign, Nike grossly insults the men and
women who really do make sacrifices for the sake of our nation. We are calling on all our
member officers, their families and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products.

 

Sincerely,
Michael McHale
President

John McCain .. Liberal, Socialist Playboy Opportunist

August 27, 2018

by Adrian Vance

John McCain was a far more interesting, colorful and controversial man than most Americans and no journalists know.   If you saw the Sunday political shows you would think a saint had passed on.
John McCain was a man driven by two ghosts:  His father and grandfather.  Both were four-star Admirals in the US Navy so John’s appointment to the US Naval Academy was his destiny, but John McCain graduated 894th in his class of 899 students.  He was known for being wild, chasing young women.  He was in a student group calling themselves “The Bad Bunch.”
John married Carol Shepp, a swimsuit model who had been married to one of his classmates with whom she had two children.  She and McCain were parents of a daughter in that marriage.  At heart a playboy, John was soon bored with domestic life and as advancement was more likely in the military services in combat, he requested active duty in Vietnam.  While there Carol faithfully stayed at home looking after the children.
His plane was shot down in 1967 when he ignored mission instructions to stay above 15,000 feet he went “down on the deck” and was shot down, survived and became a Prisoner Of War, POW.
On Christmas Eve 1969, Carol in her car, slid head-on into a telephone pole taking gifts to friends.  She was thrown from the car through the front window.  Her legs, spine, and right arm were crushed and she was in the hospital for six months.  Ross Perot was an advocate of POW’s and paid her extensive medical bills.  She requested John not be told .. feeling he had enough to deal with.   McCain was released in 1973 and returned home to much fanfare. Carol’s several surgeries cost her five inches in height, and she gained weight.  McCain told reporters he was overjoyed to see Carol again. But friends said he was appalled by the change in her appearance.
As a war hero, McCain moved in elevated circles.  Reverting to his old ways he started “running around with women,” according to Robert Timberg, a retired Marine, journalist, and author of four books, including “John McCain: An American Odessy.”   McCain admitted he started having many girlfriends and affairs during this time.  On one trip to Hawaii, at a cocktail party. he met Anheuser Busch distributor heiress, Cindy Hensley.  She was 17 years younger than McCain and worth $100 million dollars.  He invited her to have drinks with him at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.  He said by the end of the evening he was in love.
They had an affair for nine months, while he was still married to and living with his wife Carol.  McCain wanted to marry Cindy but needed to get a divorce.  He and Carol separated in January 1980.  He requested a divorce in February; the divorce was sped along and granted in April.  John and Cindy married five weeks after the divorce was final on May 17, 1980.  Carol and their children were devastated.    McCain callously left his first wife and children behind. He and Cindy moved to Arizona.  Cindy’s father was well-connected and helped McCain move smoothly into Congress .. representing Arizona in Washington DC.  John McCain has been in Congress since 1983.
McCain’s new wife and her family were extravagantly wealthy.  Her father was one of the largest distributors of Anheuser Busch in the country and she an only child.  The divorce settlement afforded Carol McCain full custody of their three children, alimony, child support, including college tuition, houses in Virginia and Florida, and lifelong financial support for her continuing medical treatment from the car accident.
Carol said the reason for the divorce was John turned 40 and he wanted to be 25 again.
Carol was extremely hurt.  She went to work as the press assistant for soon-to-be First Lady Nancy Reagan.  She was respected in Washington and kept a dignified silence about the way John McCain had treated her.   Some of the McCain friends were less forgiving, however.  They portray the politician as a self-centered womanizer who effectively abandoned his crippled wife to “play the field.”  They accuse him of finally settling on Cindy, a former rodeo beauty queen with a barn full of money.
Ever the opportunist, John McCain ran as a Republican, but spoke, voted and collaborated as a Democrat.
No wonder all the national television shows treated John McCain as a modern saint.  He was not, but we can understand the “ants in his pants.”  He lived haunted by his father and grandfather.  Two bona fide war heroes.   Ross Perot paid her medical bills years ago, says both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel, even by the standards of modern politics.  Perot said, “McCain is the classic opportunist.  He’s always reaching for attention and glory.”
Cindy has also had to learn the lessons about her husband the hard way.  Even though she and McCain put on a perfect front for the public, especially when he is running for office, she is an invisible wife.
Tom Gosinski, who served as the Director of Cindy McCain’s nonprofit American Voluntary Medical Team, AVMT wrote in his journal of the McCain marriage:  “During my short tenure at AVMT, I have been surrounded by what on the surface appears to be the ultimate all-American family.   In reality, I am working for a very sad, lonely woman.  Her marriage of convenience to a U.S. Senator has driven her to distance herself from friends, cover feelings of despair with drugs, and replace lonely moments with self-indulgence.  She became addicted to Percocet and had a doctor prescribing them for her illegally.  When her parents learned she was taking them, they helped her stop.
Washington rumors were saying McCain had an inappropriate relationship with the young and lovely lobbyist, Vicki Iseman.  Ms. Iseman began visiting McCain’s offices and campaign events so frequently in 2000 that his aides were “convinced the relationship had become romantic.”  One staff member supposedly asked, “Why is she always around?”   His staff members began a campaign to “save McCain from himself” by restricting Iseman’s access to McCain during the year 2000 Presidential Primary.  According to the Washington Post, McCain’s political advisor John Weaver met with Iseman at Washington’s Union Station to tell Iseman not to see McCain anymore.
It is not a real marriage between John and Cindy McCain.  Real marriages involve living together.  McCain and Cindy have not “lived” together for 20 years.  To defend this, McCain brags the family takes two vacations together every year and “Ms. McCain is the one who has always made that happen.”
Two vacations per year!  Little of this man was real.  He had no compassion or empathy for anyone except himself.
The only real thing emotion he was capable of was anger.  He is famous for his anger.
His father and grandfather were both decorated Navy Admirals.  He was given special privileges and extreme preferential treatment while he served in the Navy.  He was a pilot but according to his colleagues, he was a very bad pilot.  He actually crashed three planes.  There was a horrendous incident that happened on his aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. Forrestal, that killed 134 men. There has been a rolling debate since the incident and some are convinced John McCain was responsible.
Witnesses reported McCain attempted a “wet start.”  When a pilot wants to be a show-off, with a “wet start” his engine start creates a large startling flame and lots of surprise noise from the rear of a jet engine on startup.  McCain did the “Wet Start.”  The flames torched the launch of a Zuni rocket on the plane behind him.  Zuni rockets were notorious for problems.  It shot across the carrier’s deck hitting other parked planes that were packing 1,000 high-explosive pound bombs which exploded.  Destruction and fire went several decks below and nearly sunk this major 82,000 ton U.S. aircraft carrier.
This stunt caused the death of 134 sailors and blew off arms, legs, and caused blindness and burns to another 161 sailors.  McCain jumped from his plane, rolled across the flames, and escaped.  He watched the men dying and the burning from a closed circuit television on the ship.   The ship off line for two years in port for $76 million dollars of major repairs, not including the cost of the airplanes or ammunition.  Any other Navy pilots causing this type of death and destruction would have been arrested and still be in prison,but not John McCain III.  McCain was not even reprimanded.  When there is a cover-up, the soldier is usually simply assigned to another ship.  McCain was quietly assigned to another ship.  There is an ongoing debate about the incident to this day.
John McCain’s lack of character was further demonstrated when he voted not to repeal Obamacare.  He ran his 2016 Senatorial race under the banner he would lead the fight to repeal Obamacare!  But, he hates Donald Trump so very much .. he gleefully held his thumb down for his vote rather than give a thumb up.  He laughed afterward saying, “Let’s see Donald Trump save America now!”   John McCain actually stabbed his constituents and the citizens of America in the back.  John McCain, the Liberal Socialist Playboy Opportunist .. Hero with a huge question mark.  More like from yesteryear .. just a “screwup” big time all his life.

SOCIALISM IS NOT WANTED IN THIS COUNTRY, UNFORTUNATELY OUR MILLENNIAL GENERATION HAS NO REAL IDEA WHAT IT IS, IF THEY DID, THEY WOULD NOT BE SUPPORTING THESE COMMUNIST BENT INDIVIDUALS


WHAT DO WE HAVE IN TALLAHASSEE WITH MAYOR/GOVERNOR CANDIDATE ANDREW GILLUM

  • A socialist democrat Andrew Gillum’s mayor-ship, Tallahassee is ranked as the most dangerous city in Florida, with more violent crimes occurring in his city than any other metro area in the state.
  • Let’s not forget Billionaire Tom Steyer and his Next gen America PAC, Steyer is one appearing in National adds, calling for the impeachment of trump
  • Gillum’s  other job is with People for the American Way, which would take opp-researchers about 30 seconds to cast as a subversive organization.
  • Gillum  advocated removing from job applications the check mark about criminal records – in other words forcing employers to hire dangerous criminals.
  • Gillum wants to repeal “stand your ground”, ban semi-automatic “assault” rifles and is pro-gun control. (Apparently Mr. Gillum does not know the Governments definition of an “Assault Weapon, I can assure you it has nothing to do with civilian Semi-automatic rifles regardless of what they look like.)
  • Gillum stands accused of using a Tallahassee lobbyist named Adam Corey to collect kickbacks on investments in Tallahassee properties. Gillum allegedly decided that he was going to pick the winners and losers in Tallahassee by funneling money from the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency to his buddies’ businesses, or to the businesses of people that invested in Corey’s businesses.
  • Gillum under investigation himself for allegedly abusing his power as Mayor to further his run for Governor. Gillum is accused of using political campaign software for his campaign that was paid for by the city. Gillum’s email situation has reportedly been forwarded on to the State Attorney’s office.
  • Locals are also accusing Mayor Gillum of disallowing non-union electric companies from helping with power outages after Hurricane Hermine
  • Gillum was supported by World know Socialist George Soros, a man who turned his back on his own Jewish people during WWII and turn them in to be sent to Concentration camps to be murdered.  (Would you really support a man who was backed and funded by this individual?)
  • Gillum’s buddy Cory arranged a New York trip for him where he met, then went on a boat trip, was introduced to two undercover FBI agents, That trip remains the subject of a state ethics probe.  Gillum states “merely friends getting together”, (really they were undercover FBI agents one he had never met before?)
  • On the trip it’s understood that he attended a Met’s game and a Broadway show “Hamilton” Gillum refused to say if he attend those events. Why would he refuse to admit it? Gillum states; “No public money was used and no city business was discussed on the trip.” Really and all along he thought the FBI agents were developers, and they discussed no business? Gillum claims he new one agent Mike who was, someone who portrayed himself as a developer interested in investing in [Tallahassee’s] south side
  • Corey, Gillum’s long time friend reportedly set up a meeting at his Tallahassee restaurant between Gillum and the FBI agents (whom Gillum believed were developers). According to an email obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat, Corey sent a calendar invite for that meeting while he and Gillum were at an exclusive, $1,400-a-night luxury resort in Costa Rica.  Gillum says it was a personal trip in which no business was discussed  Anyone really believe this guy? $1400 a night hotel room? 
  • Why did Corey set up this meeting, then lead Gillum his “friend” to believe they were both developers?
  • None of this came up in the primary because everyone thought he was along shot fourth place finisher.
  • Gillum want to rebuild Florida’s education system so that we can make sure our kids are ready for Kindergarten earlier? (What at 3 – 4 years of age, this is what I would refer as a life long indoctrination program, get the kids away from their parents.)
  • Gillum supports the legalization of marijuana in order to generate new revenue to pay for teacher and instructional staff pay increases, really illegal drug money to fund education? (Yes it is still illegal according the U.S government).

     

    Gillum His first priority as Governor will be appointing three new Supreme Court justices who share the values of this state, and he’ll appoint diverse, qualified judges who represent the breadth and depth of people in this state. This should scare everyone in the state, he apparently does not understand what the job of the Supreme court justices, it is not to ” represent the breadth and depth of the people” (State supreme courts primary responsibility consists of correcting the errors of the inferior state courts.  It exclusively hears appeals on legal issues from inferior state courts.  Since it does not make any finding of facts, it holds no trials, hence no representing the breadth and depth of the people!)

Mainstream media declares Democrat socialist Andrew Gillum is a monkey!

Mainstream media declares Democrat socialist Andrew Gillum is a monkey!

The media has jumped the monkey. The mainstream media has declared that the socialist Andrew Gillum is a monkey. In the process the media monkey’s up what ‘monkey this up’ means.

In a Fox News interview Republican candidate for Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis describe his opponent, Democrat Socialist Gillum, as an “articulate spokesman for those far left views” and a “charismatic candidate.” DeSantis then said:

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction. Let’s build off the success we’ve had on Governor Scott. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this [Governor Scott’s legacy] up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”

DeSantis was clearly addressing Governor Scott’s legacy but is concerned Florida will go in the wrong direction economically under his opponents socialist agenda.

Here are two definitions of the phrase “monkey it up”:

The Free Dictionary – Get (one’s) monkey up. To make angry.

Definitions.net – Monkey up. To hack together hardware for a particular task, especially a one-shot job. Connotes an extremely crufty and consciously temporary solution. Compare hack up, kluge up, cruft together.

However, Dictionary.com posted on its Twitter page the below with a link to the phrase “dog whistle”:

 When the words “monkey this up” are used to refer to electing a man of color, that would be a blatant … 

So what is a dog whistle according to Dictionary.com?

dog whistle

Politics. a political strategy, statement, slogan, etc., that conveys a controversial, secondary message understood only by those who support the message.

If you search the phrase monkey this up on Dictionary.com you will get the message “no results.”

So in effect the Dictionary.com is using what Congressman DeSantis said as a “dog whistle” to those who oppose him. Of course then the media picked up on this “dog whistle” and broadcast it far and wide.

It appears the media has embraced the “infinite monkey theorem.”

According to Wikipedia:

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

The phrase “monkey see, monkey do” comes to mind as the mainstream media does what the other media does when parsing words. The media is like monkeys hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard.
