A National Emergency and Border Security

President Trump Counters Bad Border Deal 

 

By Justin O. Smith

“We want to have a safe country. I ran on a very simple slogan – ‘Make America Great Again.’ If you’re going to have drugs pouring across the border, if you’re going to have human traffickers pouring across the border in areas where we have no protection, in areas where we don’t have a barrier, then, [it is] very hard to make America great again.~ President Donald J. Trump, Rose Garden Speech February 15th 2019

 

President Trump simultaneously declared a national emergency for humanitarian and national security reasons along the border. In the same breath, he noted on February 15th that he would sign the omnibus bill and the bad Border Deal it contains; and in fact, he signed it shortly afterwards, acquiring authority over the $1.375 billion appropriated for the wall, while declaring his intention to spend eight billion more dollars through his authority under the national emergency declaration.

 

The President was left with very little choice from an intransigent, duplicitous Democratic Party leadership in control of the House, at the moment, such as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had vowed “not $1 for the wall”. He took a head on approach to avoid another partial government shutdown, however unwise a course it may be, while he diverts $6.5 billion to build portions of the wall that the Democrats have refused to authorize.

 

Americans across the board want The Wall built. These Democrats are against the American people and against U.S. Sovereignty. [Blog Editor: In November 2016, Donald Trump was elected President largely on the promise of a big beautiful wall. YET most recent polls show American disfavor for a border wall. Why? No one can give a definitive answer (unless of course you are a lying Leftist). But here is something to mull over as you hear the Left-Stream Media quote polls most Americans do not want a wall: Those same polls back in November 2016 told Americans Crooked Hillary would win the vote to become President. Those polls were wrong then and I STRONGLY suspect those polls are wrong NOW!]

 

The Republican Party got smoked and beaten badly in this deal. Who in the Hell was negotiating for them?

 

Making the declaration was a strong move for national security and to gain further momentum for the Republicans leading up to the 2020 election, since the Border Deal was a farce of a deal, that only funded 55 miles of the wall, rather than the 200 miles requested.

During his speech on Friday at the White House Rose Garden, President Trump stated: “We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border, and we’re going to do it, one way or another. We have to do it. … We’re talking about an invasion of our country.”

 

Many previous presidents have declared national emergencies prior to this, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama. There were already 31 active national emergencies in the U.S., before President Trump’s declaration marked the 32nd.

 

One should also note, when Obama used his pen to counter U.S. immigration law and implement DACA, to safeguard Illegal Aliens, he eroded U.S. sovereignty, and he went against the Constitution and the express will of the American people. On the other hand, President Trump’s actions are in line with his Constitutional edict to defend and protect U.S. borders and the Constitution.

 

However, the abdication of Congress, in the face of this and many other dire problems, i.e. out-of-control spending, and its relinquishing of its own power and authority over the decades, gave all previous presidents extraordinary power to act in the face of a national emergency, through numerous laws passed by Congress. President Trump has referred to the 1976 National Emergencies Act found at 50 U.S. Code 1601-1651.

 

In light of all this, there is still no way to see this so-called compromise as a anything less than a major loss, once one views the fine print in the Border Deal, which is even worse than it first appeared. It’s the fine print that should have had Republicans turning their backs on this deal. And it’s no wonder the Democrats were in such a rush to sign, not just to avoid a shutdown.

 

Not even 24 hours had elapsed from the introduction of the 1,169 page bill to the vote. House rules require 72 hours for representatives to review a bill.

 

According to Daniel Horowitz, writing at Conservative Review, the bill limits construction to just the Rio Grande Valley sector, disallowing any concrete barriers, while section 231 of the bill prohibits construction even within this area in five locations, that are either state or federal lands. And, much worse, this bill gives veto power to local officials, who may not want the wall in their area.

 

The Rio Grande area is in dire need of significant security measures and an actual physical wall. However, it is home to some of some of the most hardcore “progressive” liberals, and giving these local Democrat satraps a veto over the wall is nothing less than a poison pill.

 

Prior to the President signing the bill, former border officials told Fox News, and several other media outlets, that expanded protections for potential sponsors of unaccompanied migrant children were “land mines” that make the bill worthy of a presidential veto.

 

The Border Deal is one massive betrayal of the American people, in what Daniel Horowitz framed as “a blatant amnesty for the world’s worst cartel smugglers. Section 224 (a) prohibits the deportation of anyone who is sponsoring an “unaccompanied” minor illegal alien; anyone who says they might sponsor an Unaccompanied Child, and anyone who lives in a household with a UAC or a household that potentially might sponsor a UAC. … “the very people paying the cartels to invade us.”

 

This invasion is driven by the intentional skewing of the UAC law, that sets forth what constitutes a true “refugee”. Central American teenagers are only supposed to be treated as refugees, if they are a victim of sex and drug trafficking or have no relatives in America, and yet, nearly each and every one of them is self-trafficked by their own extremely illegal relatives, who reside in America. Rather than saying “No Deal” or forcing much needed changes to the bill, the Republicans went ahead with this miserable fleecing of the American people, which rewards these Illegal Aliens with a de facto amnesty.

 

And from the Center for Immigration Studies, Jessica Vaughn’s interpretation was even grimmer: “We can call this the MS-13 Household Protection Act of 2019.”

 

In justifying his emergency declaration, President Trump repeatedly acknowledged and honored the presence of the Angel Moms in attendance, as he retold the stories of their children’s deaths at the hands of Illegal Aliens. Some of the Angel Moms in the Rose Garden urged the president not to sign the bipartisan bill, noting that it contained several measures that incentivized illegal immigration.

 

At one point in his speech President Trump exclaimed:

 

“We’re talking about an invasion of our country with drugs, with human traffickers, with all types of criminals and gangs. We have some of the greatest people here; I know — they’ve been with me from the beginning of my campaign, almost from the first week — the Angel Moms. Unfortunately, we have new Angel Moms.

 

One incredible woman just showed me her daughter who — we’re talking about killed — in the year of 18. I said, I haven’t seen you before. She said, ‘No, I’m new.’ I said, that’s too bad. It’s too bad. It’s so sad. Stand up, just for a second. Show how beautiful your girl was [in the picture she held]. Thank You.”

 

The President called his actions necessary given the scale of the problem along the southern border, as he responded to CNN Jim Acosta’s suggestion that he had “concocted” an emergency for political gain, whereupon the President responded: “Ask these women [Angel Moms] if there’s a national emergency.”

 

He expects to be met by numerous legal challenges, even as the ACLU sharpens its pencil. He also expects to win in the Supreme Court.

 

Under the Emergency Declaration, President Trump  will attempt to appropriate discretionary military funds to close the gap between the nearly $1.4 billion Congress appropriated for The Wall and the $5.7 billion he has long demanded. However, now the president is reaching for $8 billion, by taking $600 million from the Treasury, the Treasury forfeiture front and $2,5 billion out of the Defense Department. His staff is also looking at using drug interdiction funds and the $3.5 billion they discovered in the military construction budget, that certainly won’t conflict with the President’s constitutional mandate to defend America.

 

Declaring the emergency also puts a companion statute in motion — 10 U.S. Code 2808, that gives the president authority to create military construction projects using funds appropriated for other military projects, such as a $10 billion account approved by Congress last September, for the Army Corps of Engineers, with its military and civilian workforce of 37,000 people.

 

Once he declares an emergency, a companion statute, 10 U.S. Code 2808, says the president can create military construction projects, using funds originally intended for other military projects such as a $10-billion account that Congress approved last September. That money involves the Army Corps of Engineers, with its military and civilian workforce of 37,000 people, which is why a border wall might become a military project

 

Love him or hate him, no one can say that President Donald Trump isn’t standing up for America. He isn’t usurping any powers, not when Congress gave it to him, because they are risk-averse and want to pass the buck to him rather than accept responsibility themselves — dodging accountability and evading its Constitutional duty. Yes — Love him or hate him — President Trump is ideally suited to lead America at this pivotal moment precisely due to his ability to go where no other President would, being a warrior for the American people, whom he so obviously loves

AOC’s Marshall Plan for America

AOC’s Marshall Plan for America

America’s Wild-Eyed Communists

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent Originally 2/13/19 8:39 PM

Update sent: 2/15/2019 6:44 PM

 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical “Green New Deal” legislation proposal [Blog Editor: Farting cows in original version mysteriously disappears in final version], presented to America on February 7th, is an outright Marxist socialist and a virtual communist attempt to supplant our Republic system and our capitalist economy, in a manner that can only result in the destruction of both. Offering an extraordinary, unprecedented level of government intrusion, a “massive government intervention” in her words, AOC’s plan isn’t simply going to transform our lives, rather it will smash our way of life, through a mass de-population scheme, that Americans ignore at our own peril.

 

Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal sensationalizes and magnifies the imagined impending doom from climate change, and yet, the plan actually addresses very few solutions for anything climate related. Instead, the plan has latched on to climate change, in utopian fashion, and a ruse that offers everything under the sun as a new right, from ice-cream for everyone to a right to get a government purchased pony, or so it does seem. She and her ilk have opportunistically seized upon the issue to justify seizing the United States economy and implementing full-blown socialism and the most Left-wing agenda in American history.

 

Branding the plan as a kind of “Marshall Plan” and lifting a page from Bill McKibben’s 2016 article in ‘The New Republic’, one finds free Medicare — may as well call it “Medicaid” for all — free education, high-speed rails to replace air travel, a federal jobs guarantee, codified family leave, a national union, income paid to those unwilling to work and rebuilding every structure in the nation to meet new environmental regulations. The plan closely follows the failed socialist “Leap Manifesto” advocated by Canada’s Leftists, anti-capitalists, and eco-socialists, such as Naomi Klein, who once wrote “shredding the free-market ideology that has dominated the global economy for more than three decades” was the only way to combat climate change.

 

At the heart of the New Communists’ plan is a focus on renewable energy and the notion that they can move the nation completely away from the use of fossil fuel over the next decade. Electricity would triple in cost, and gasoline could easily rise to $6 per gallon, or more, just to reach fifty percent renewable energy, according to many independent studies including the Heritage Foundation. If actually implemented, their plan will economically cripple the United States, even if it was gradually implemented over the next thirty years.

 

What happens to the former workers in the fossil fuel industry? Will wind-farming be able to absorb their numbers in a cost efficient manner? AOC’s plan does call for a “fair and just transition for all communities and workers.” Ha! I can barely contain my excitement, as I hear this coming from the same party that gave us the failed Obamacare.

 

As noted by Robert Bryce, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute: “FDR, Sam Rayburn and others who pushed for rural electrification back in the 1930s did so because they wanted lower-cost electricity for rural customers. The (Green New Deal) will result in massive increases in energy costs for consumers across the country. It will require covering vast swaths of rural America with wind turbines and transmission lines at the very time that states from Maine to California are rejecting those same projects.”

 

It is not hard to imagine that many households will be hard-pressed to choose between freezing in the winter, buying groceries or paying their mortgages. America will see a sharp rise in homelessness, if such a plan is ever passed, especially considering homelessness has risen steadily, since 1980, and its numbers are now higher than during the Great Depression.

 

Will government be able to prevent them from starving to death by opening “soup kitchens”?

 

Thank God there isn’t enough support in the Senate to pass this fantasy legislation, mimicking Mao’s catastrophic Great Leap Forward, that is advocated by the nation’s red, radical Democrats, at the moment. Such will not always be the case unless we can stop the trend that exhibits 51 percent of Americans age 18 to 29 now view socialism and even communism favorably, with 60 percent of Democrats holding these radical beliefs.

 

Once thought to be a fringe policy idea, AOC’s plan has given climate change legislation significant momentum in recent months. At least 40 members of the House have stated they support the Green New Deal, and every Democratic presidential candidate supports most or all of the plan, from Senators Cory Booker (NJ) to Kamala Harris (CA) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass) to Representative Tulsi Gabbard [Daily Caller & The Hill] (HA).  And potential Democratic candidate, Bernie Sanders (VT) has also thrown his support behind it.

 

I wonder how much Tulsi is going to love her train ride to Hawaii?

 

This sort of transition would essentially nationalize the economy and force the abandonment of huge swaths of capital, which could not be redirected anywhere else; however, every resource, nearly all labor and all production would be diverted from its current use to an agenda determined by government planners and overlords. Much of America would be impoverished overnight, if any such plan ever becomes “law”, and that’s no exaggeration.

 

These wild-eyed communists suggest that throwing money at these projects will ensure their success, but most of America will not easily fall in line to pay the $6.6 trillion annual price-tag, that is three times the amount the federal government collects in tax revenues and thirty-four percent of the U.S.’s entire Gross Domestic Product. It will more than likely require deadly force to redirect such a massive amount of the nation’s wealth, if, Heaven forbid, the Democrat’s ever gain so much power.

 

The New Green Communists’ are unwilling to be truthful about their resolution. Current technologies and opportunity costs would be overwhelmed by this proposal, resulting in a systemic collapse and mass shortages and a scarcity of food. It may read like it offers a wonderful world for all, by emulating Venezuela’s Constitution and enshrining all sorts of “rights”, but it essentially shreds the U.S. Constitution and impedes and suppresses individual liberty, and it reduces each American to “equality” in the lowest common denominator in extreme poverty. It is a miserable proposal that will result in millions of Americans being murdered or starved to death, in order to ensure its success and perpetual power for its Democratic Party creators, under a totalitarian socialist state.

 

And any American Patriot should be prepared to fight any such plan from ever becoming “law” to his death — for any way one chooses to view it, death goes hand in hand with the New Greed Deal.

Us vs Them


Justin Smith tackles the existence of political gridlock in America today, blaming it on the irreconcilable differences between the Dems and GOP. Justin quite correctly points to the gridlock as the Dems have lurched toward Marxism sanitized under the term – Democratic Socialism. Just like the Dems like to call themselves Progressives to disguise their current Marxist agenda, telling Americans that a Democratic Socialist is a Socialism for the people.

 

Spoiler alert: Justin believes (and I agree) that the Two-Party system as it exists today makes America ungovernable. When America is ungovernable, what will it lead to?

Us vs Them

The Republic Hangs In The Balance: Communists, Devils and SOBs

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/10/2019 9:07 PM

 

Most of the American public feels that the future of the Republic hangs in the balance. “Four more years of Trump… and it will be the end of us…” they say. Or… “I hope those Democrats don’t get into office; did you see those taxes they’re proposing?”

 

We are programmed to see the world that way. It’s “Us vs. Them.” You just have to decide which “Us” you’re part of.

 

But what if you’ve chosen the wrong “Us”? What if neither the Republicans nor the Democrats will save the Republic?

 

We’re pretty well stuck with the Two-Party System for Now — the Choice We made Despite George Washington’s admonishment against parties — until we can kill the parties off, DISCARD THEM LIKE OLD BROKEN DOWN SHOES.

 

America needs to kill the two party system and simply allow the best man or woman with the best ideas and vision for the nation win the day. But that will not be an easy thing, since parties determine the ballot; however, it can be done, if the people will it so.

 

Short of this, patriotic Americans must help both parties purge their ranks of anti-American communists, socialists, Muslims and globalists, who do not work within the confines of the U.S. Constitution and do not protect and defend it and our nation’s Founding Principles. It’s past time we make it known that the ideas of Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Mao have absolutely no place in America’s culture.

 

I am afraid it’s going to take a civil war to drive this point home. Our divide has never been so great, all due to one side’s abandoning the vision and the mechanisms placed in our system, by Our Founding Fathers.

 

We have arrived at the day described by Washington, when men and women place party allegiance over allegiance and loyalty to America. But it’s even more serious than many can know. We have allowed a large segment of the population to be indoctrinated by the advocates and progenitors of Marxist Socialism, a foreign ideology that is antithetical to our Founding Principles, acting through sedition and treason against our nation; and this large segment is now represented by the Democratic Party, just as RINOs are its agents in the Republican Party.

 

Communism has long infiltrated our nation and both parties [Dems], from its spawning in 1848, and it seeks our subjugation and the end of individual liberty.

 

So, as we proceed rather warily and regard the future for America’s Children, when You select a candidate for any office, try to get Your community on the same page to vote for someone — A Person, A Statesman and Not A Party — who holds proven views that support the greatest economic prosperity through an individual’s own efforts and free choices; who supports known ideas, virtues and principles that allow for the greatest realm of individual liberty possible.

 

Work like hell to get them elected.

 

And then push all elected representatives to rescind superfluous laws and bad or illegitimate law that impedes any God-given right or the Bill of Rights, and make these legislators ask the following before each bill is voted upon.

 

Does this bill help all Americans? Or does it harm more Americans than it helps?

 

Does this bill create real potential for greater prosperity? Or does it impede economic growth?

 

Does this bill take anything away from individual liberty? Too many bills do this very thing simply due to the fact they fall under the auspices of the government; by this alone, Congress should be passing VERY FEW “Laws” each year, instead of thousands of new laws that not one citizen in the nation can possibly know or obey in their entirety.

 

There are only two things worth fighting for. You are either protecting your stuff or you are protecting yourself. But against whom?

 

Those devils in the Republican party? Or those SOBs, the Democrats?

 

The Democrats are vying with each other to see who can come up with a new tax, likely to be seen at the 70% mark, to take away our property; we surely don’t want them in charge.

 

But wait… the Republicans increased spending by some $500 billion over two years… and added $2 trillion to the federal debt. Where did they think that money would come from?

 

Where is the “Us” worthy of support? Where is the “Them” that should be annihilated? Well … for starters we definitely can say it is those illiberal and intolerant Communists, Socialists, Fascists and Muslims within our borders, who should be annihilated; since they have just about forced our nation to Her knees as they repeatedly and often attack our Founding Judeo-Christian Principles, Our Constitution and Our Freedoms and Liberties and God-given Rights.

 

Tell Your Congressmen and Senators, that You would PREFER THEY DO NOTHING RATHER THAN PASS BAD, ILLEGITIMATE LAW THAT FURTHER ERODES OUR CONSTITUTION AND OUR FREEDOM AND LIBERTY.

 

Make this a plan for ELECTION 2020!!!

The End of the Line


Justin Smith views warnings of an imminent economic crisis from billionaire investors. AND the so-called Green New Deal may make the predictions even worse.

The End of the Line

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/9/2019 5:00 PM

 

The United States’ economy has surpassed all normal ebbs and flows, corrections, by approximately five years, since on average in each past cycle it rose for 56 months before collapsing. We’re about five years past that point and our economy is only now “cooling”. We’re just about due for another economic recession, if not a collapse that makes 2008 look small. We’re at the end of the line.

The U.S. spends almost a third of its revenue on interest payments alone, and it doesn’t seem like it can afford to pay much more.

In the short decade since 2008, the national debt, ever on the rise, has jumped from $10.6 trillion to $22 trillion. It also comes with a deficit that’s currently over $1 trillion currently. The interest payments alone may be forming a “black hole” from which the U.S. may never escape.

These facts alone should raise concern in any interested observer.

 

And now we see twenty-nine year old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a product of the Puerto Rican Enlightenment and a Bronx resident, and other red, radical socialists like her in the House of Representatives, promising Pie-In-The-Sky Utopia for everyone. This makes her a danger to herself, her constituents and the nation, since she believes there isn’t any problem that a government program cannot solve, and she is already advocating for Medicare for all, a job guarantee, free college tuition, a green infrastructure program, and a squeeze the rich tax plan (70% for those making over $10 million).

 

Most political pundits say, “It will never pass … it’s crazy … it will harm the economy.” But, crazy plans that hurt the economy just might stand a chance at passing, since just over half the population in its entirety, and 51% of all Millennials, now have an acceptable view of socialism, some even embracing communism.

 

When existing laws of the land cause bankruptcy and chaos, people seem to look to legislate even more absurd laws, which is precisely how the first New Deal was pushed through Congress, during the panic and despair of the 1932 elections. And the New Deal gave President Franklin D. Roosevelt carte blanche to enact a series of costly programs.

 

A good guess is that the next economic crisis will be severe and long-lasting, too, as stocks fall hard and the economy goes into a deep recession.

 

“How did we get here”, one young lady recently asked me. Short answer: America has been guided to this point, by the consequences of the Federal Reserve Act, centralized banking, regulations, currency manipulation, devaluing the U.S. dollar, socialist initiatives in Congress to fast-track globalism, unfunded debt, monetized debt and acts of anti-American national sovereignty on both sides of the aisle who are intent on tearing apart the Founders’ vision and U.S. sovereignty, in order to pave the way for the globalists and their vision of a “new world order”.

 

The enemies of America, both foreign and domestic, have been working towards this goal for the past 120 years, and they have been working tirelessly and consistently towards leveling America’s power and wealth to the point She can be managed and coerced or forced to submit to the global agenda of the few power elite, the oligarchs of the world,

 

Mainstream media almost never hype a financial crisis, so it’s significant when they do. But when billionaires are sounding the alarm, you might want to pay close attention.

At least two billionaires are doing just that, starting with Baupost Group’s Seth Klarman. Baupost Group is a $28 billion hedge fund, and Klarman normally positions himself out of the limelight. His fund is only open to private investors, so he has little incentive to promote his brand to the public.

But recently, he felt the need to write a warning to investors about the global debt, with specific reference to the U.S., according to Sovereign Man:

In a 22-page letter to his investors, Klarman warned that government debt levels, particularly in the US (where debt exceeds GDP), could lead to the next global financial crisis.

The seeds of the next major financial crisis (or the one after that) may well be found in today’s sovereign debt levels,” he wrote.

 

Even ignoring economic history, there are signs everywhere, as nearly every major asset class around the world, from stocks and bonds to real estate, is selling at nearly an all-time high at prices that defy common sense. This suggests the possibility of a big recession and market correction just before the 2020 election, giving the socialists a much needed crisis that could catapult them into a majority in both houses of Congress. And that’s why we should all be praying that if any coming recession must come, let it hit soon, so it can be properly addressed before it becomes a major election issue.

In the same letter, Klarman continued: “There is no way to know how much debt is too much, but America will inevitably reach an inflection point whereupon a suddenly more skeptical debt market will refuse to continue to lend to us at rates we can afford…

Since the U.S. spends almost a third of its revenue on interest payments alone, it doesn’t seem like it can afford to pay much more.

And Klarman isn’t the only billionaire expressing unease. At the World Economic Forum [Blog Editor: WEFORUM – Globalization 4.0; Breitbart-Pompeo-Nationalism; New American-Merkel-Communist China-Globalist Agenda; & TheGatewayPundit-Ted Malloch-Criticizing Davos] in Davos, Switzerland, Ray Dalio, founder of the world’s largest hedge fund, said that debt would be to blame for the next downturn, which he believes will be bigger than the Great Depression.

“The biggest issue is that there is only so much one can squeeze out of a debt cycle and most countries are approaching those limits”.

You might think the U.S. government would do everything to curb this problem, but Uncle Sam’s total debt is rapidly approaching $22 trillion, and according to the Congressional Budget Office’s latest ten-year projection, it will be more than $33 trillion by 2029, with $1 trillion annual deficits set to begin again and stay above that for as far as the fiscal eye can see.

Skyrocketing debt, check. Deficit to match, check. Or will it be checkmate?

Although I’ve stated this twice before in this piece. let me reiterate — The U.S. spends almost a third of its revenue on interest payments alone.  America and Her people cannot afford to pay much more.

WE’VE ARRIVED AT THE END OF THE LINE.

Beyond a Sad Day In America

Beyond a Sad Day In America

The Monstrous Abortion Laws 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/2/2019 8:00 PM

 

Deuteronomy 30:19 ~ I have set before you Life and Death and Cursing; therefore Choose Life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

 

It is beyond a sad day in America, when we witness illegitimate “laws” and infanticide, that allow a full term baby capable of living outside the womb to be murdered on its way through the birth canal, if a woman so chooses for any reason. We’re witnessing a deliberative body of several state legislatures, swayed by radical, demonic abortionists in the Democratic Party, from New York to Virginia and Rhode Island to Vermont, among many others, make conscious, premeditated decisions to legalize murder, and, as a rule, they prefer to sign a baby’s death warrant rather than seek alternatives that protect both the unborn child and the woman, the mother to be.

 

The Democratic Party and its followers seem to have taken a page from the writings of Thomas Malthus, Karl Marx, Josef Mengele, Margaret Sanger and the March 1st 2012 Journal of Medical Ethics, that I noted on March 12th 2012 in ‘Choose Freedom … Choose Life’. Abortion has long been used to destroy family units to ensure government power and control, and today we are seeing Malthusian eugenics make a resurgence, along with the monstrous suggestion that a child, any child, does not have a moral right to life AFTER its birth.

 

Thankfully, Virginia’s infanticide bill failed, and in the course of events, a video of delegate Kathy Tran explaining  how her bill would allow abortion, as the expectant mother was in the middle of contractions, ignited fiery controversy. Tran later acknowledged that her law would have run afoul of existing anti-infanticide laws.

 

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a pediatric neurosurgeon, further inflamed America with his comments days after New York Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act that allows late term abortion “at any time” to “protect a patient’s life or health”. The RHA also repealed protections for born babies that survive failed abortions, and other states, like Rhode Island are following suit and introducing bills that would repeal bans on partial-birth abortion.

 

Yes. Don’t let a little thing like the baby actually exiting the mother’s womb stop anyone from murdering it.

 

On January 30th, Governor Northam spoke with DC’s WTOP Radio, in reference to failed abortions. According to Northam, the baby is out of the womb, the umbilical cord cut, and lying on a table next to the woman’s bed, and after a discussion between the doctors and the woman, the baby could be killed in the same manner a full-term baby is killed in a partial birth abortion. The baby’s brains are sucked out through a vacuum until her head collapses, even though just moments earlier she was crying, instinctively longing to be held and fed.

 

Medical experts such as Dr. Omar Hamada recently stated, “There’s absolutely no reason to kill a baby before delivery in the third trimester”.

 

It is a shame that the majority of abortionists don’t have the same epiphany as Dr. Anthony Levatino had years ago. His testimony on May 17th 2012, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 3803) should be required reading for all high school youths. He spoke of the Sopher clamp with its ragged rows of jagged teeth made for clamping and crushing tissue and of the white fluid that leaves the woman’s cervix after the baby’s brain has been crushed — a procedure he had performed over 1200 times between 1981 and 1985. And then, he tells how his adopted daughter, Heather, was hit by a car and killed on June 23rd 1984, which prompted him to reject doing any more abortions.

 

Dr. Levatino, encouraged by a Catholic bishop, now tells everyone: “When you lose a child, life is different. Everything changes … the idea of a person’s life becomes very real. It is not an embryology course anymore … it’s your child buried … I couldn’t even think about a D&E abortion anymore.”

 

Continuing his Congressional testimony, he gives one example of saving a woman’s life by “terminating her pregnancy” through a Cesarean section; mother and baby did well afterwards. And he ends his testimony noting: “During my time at Albany Medical Center I managed hundreds of such cases by ‘terminating’ pregnancies to save mother’s lives. In all those cases, the number of unborn children that I had to deliberately kill was zero.

 

Leftist abortionists can tout baby murder as in the interest of women’s health all they wish, but the facts and their own contradictions belie their assertions. These new laws, like New York’s, allow non-physicians to perform abortions; they dismiss research that reveal the physical and psychological damage women incur from abortions; they refuse to inform young women about the risks associated with an abortion, and they do not counsel them on the option of adoption. These abortionists cloak their true agenda in the euphemism of “choice”.

 

No question exists that a partially delivered baby is a human being, although some will argue that it’s not so cut and dried early on in the pregnancy. At forty weeks, there is absolutely no reason to prevent the UnBorn Child from claiming his or her God-given right to life, which supersedes the woman’s vacuous right to privacy.

 

The Leftist position is morally repugnant, and goes against the grain and most Americans’ belief in protecting innocent life. They believe baby murder to be perfectly acceptable in their defense of abortion rights, and even so, they try to pretend they hold the moral high ground. Surely a viable baby is innocent, too.

 

These latest laws are atrocious to human beings, and they are nothing short of eugenics, nothing less than infanticide manifested in evil human selfishness in the ugliest way imaginable, and a fundamental shift in America’s conscience. The red radical Democratic Party makes a big show of empathy for the weak and marginalized, and yet, few if any shed a tear for the slaughter of millions of UnBorn Children, the most vulnerable among us. And this is the most tragic and complete denigration of America’s founding spirit of righteousness.

 

Roe v Wade is only an activist ruling made by the Supreme Court. It is not “the law of the land” as many Leftists suggest, and it is certainly not settled “law”.

 

On the federal level, Americans must stop allowing any majority of activist Black Robes to circumvent the U.S. Constitution by finding “new rights” within the Constitution that require a flight of fancy to discover. Only Congress can actually make law, and Congress needs to restrain the Court to its proper role and ignore Roe v Wade and also move to make abortion illegal across the country, except, in the most rare of circumstances, when a young mother’s life is truly endangered by the pregnancy, and she already has small children.

 

“There are times which we attempt to compromise in order to bring two opposing sides together for the benefit of all concerned.

 

There are other times when we are presented with a clear and distinct watershed. The opposition has as its only purpose to impose their will on all without compromise, without apology, and without recourse to the opposed.

 

It is at these times we must be courageous, stand firm, and fight. That time is now!” ~ Francis Schaeffer / ‘The Great Evangelical Disaster’

I found a great post about Leftists on the Secret Facebook Group PATRIOTS UNITED TO SAVE AMERICA posted by James Griffin. I don’t know if it is an original work or not, but it hits the nail’s head in defining an un-American Left Winger.

 

I edited the post in the hope of making better readability.

A Beginner’s Guide To American Communist Parties: Part 2


???????????

On January 25th I cross posted Trevor Loudon’s part one exposé of Communist infiltration in America. A Communism dedicated to the destruction of the Founding Fathers’ vision of an American Republic sealed by a Constitution insuring representative government by WE THE PEOPLE under the providence of nature’s Judeo-Christian Creator. Below is part two.

 

Here is an excerpt that should inspire you as an American Patriot, to read the entire article:

 

The Nature of Communist Organizations

 

Keep in mind that leftist groups often overlap, morph, and split. Like their principles, these groups are forever changing, which adds to the complexity in researching them. One thing that does not change, however, is the goal of all these organizations: global communism, which they believe can only be achieved through revolution.

 

 

No matter how this revolution is achieved, the United States is the biggest obstacle in their path. Once the United States succumbs to communism, these activists believe they will be directly overseeing a new world order.

A Beginner’s Guide To American Communist Parties: Part 2

Part Two of this article addresses American communist groups who organize outside of the Democratic Party, unlike their Democrat Party-friendly counterparts, who were discussed in Part One.

 

Broadly speaking, there are two categories of hard-left organizations in America: those who organize within the Democrat Party and those who do not. Those who generally stay away from the Democratic Party encompass dedicated ideologues who are more likely to engage in street violence and—like their Democrat-friendly counterparts — work with foreign communist regimes and groups.

 

While hardened communists represent a small fraction of the population, they have a surprisingly powerful impact but receive little scrutiny from the establishment media. The Revolutionary Communist Party’s flag-burning activities, for example, resulted in a Supreme Court decision that continues to reverberate.

 

The Revolutionary Communist Party’s front group, Refuse Fascism, placed a full-page ad in the New York Times that was signed by former Weather Underground terrorist, communist, and former President Barack Obama’s friend Bill Ayers; professor of theology and Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) member Cornel West; and militant anti-Israel activist Marc Lamont Hill, to name a few.

 

The hardcore Marxist Workers World Party was behind the headline-grabbing push to demolish confederate-era statues. The Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! fought to keep terrorist murderer Rasmea Odeh in the United States.

 

Communists of all stripes descended upon Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown; they were behind the Standing Rock standoff over the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota; they flooded to the border to support the Honduras Caravan at the end of 2018; they descended upon Charlottesville in August 2017 to protest the so-called “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally; and they were behind numerous violent anti-Trump protests in 2016 and 2017.

 

Communists agitate their way into headlines on a regular basis; yet many Americans believe communists somehow evaporated when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down in 1989.

 

This two-part series offers a birds-eye view of the U.S.-based organizations, and hopefully plants the seed for readers to understand that these subversive organizations exist, and they seek to hurt America.

 

Socialist Party USA (SPUSA)

 

In the early 20th century, the Socialist Party USA (SPUSA) was the largest Marxist group on the U.S. left with 100,000 members boasting numerous elected officials, mainly in the Midwest. The SPUSA lost many members to the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) in the 1920s, and much of the remaining remnant to the Democratic Socialists Organizing Committee in the 1970s.

 

Today’s SPUSA overlaps with the Green Party in some areas, with the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) in Memphis, Tennessee, and with Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) nationally.

 

In Memphis, the SPUSA controls the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center and does interact with some local Democrats such as Congressmember Steve Cohen (D-TN).

 

The SPUSA is probably under a thousand members in total, but has a presence in almost every state.

 

The party is extremely militant, and is effective in some areas on local issues, but is ultimately a fringe player on the U.S. left.

 

Socialist Workers Party (SWP)

 

In the 1970s, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) was a leading force in the anti-Vietnam War movement. Its newspaper The Militant was widely read on the U.S. left. The SWP began as a pro-Leon Trotsky split from the CPUSA in the 1920s, and for many years was the country’s second-largest communist party. Currently, the SWP is a shadow of its former self.

 

The SWP abandoned Trotskyism in the 1980s, and now orientates its international activities around Cuba and the old Soviet front the World Federation of Democratic Youth. The SWP has tiny sister groups in Canada, Iceland, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia.

 

In the United States, the SWP is now little more than a Marxist cult. Their tactic is to recruit bright young college students then put them to work for decades in meat-packing plants in Iowa or Nebraska to connect with the “working class.” This talent-wasting exercise has been applied since the 1970s with minimal results.

 

But they keep trying.

 

The once-dynamic SWP retains maybe 500 members nationwide.

 

Freedom Socialist Party (FSP)

 

The Freedom Socialist Party (FSP) began in 1966 as a split from the SWP in Seattle. It is militantly feminist, “anti-racist,” and pro-Cuba. Today, the FSP has branches in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Melbourne, Australia. It probably has under 200 members in total.

 

The FSP is big on “abortion clinic defense,” usually through their front-group Radical Women.

 

Workers World Party (WWP)

 

The Workers World Party (WWP) is one of the most hardcore Marxist organizations of any consequence in the United States. It was founded in 1959 as a pro-China split from the SWP. Its newspaper, the Workers World’s banner line is “Workers and Oppressed Peoples of the World Unite.”

 

They incorporate elements of Stalin, Mao, and Trotsky into their revolutionary philosophy.

 

The WWP is a serious communist party, very active in street protests and often prone to violence. When you see Confederate statues being toppled in North Carolina or Louisiana—that’s the WWP.

 

The WWP has close ties to Russia, North Korea, and Cuba. These people are one the most dangerous communist parties in the country.

 

The WWP has 400–600 members in about 30 branches, mainly in New York, Boston, Chicago, and the West Coast.

 

The WWP runs its own candidates, but the Durham, North Carolina, branch does work with Democrats.

 

In 2018, the WWP’s very strong Detroit branch split from the organization to form a new group, the Communist Workers League.

 

Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL)

 

The Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) was originally created in 2006, as the result of a split in the WWP, although their “political line” is almost identical. The San Francisco branch as well as several other members left the WWP in 2004. The PSL has since established two national branches in Washington, D.C. and in San Francisco, as well as more than 20 smaller branches throughout the United States, from Sarasota, Florida, to West Virginia to Portland, Oregon.

 

The PSL is a dynamic and growing party but suffers a high burnout rate of cadre. It is probably 500 to 800 members strong.

 

The PSL is very close to Russia, Iran, North Korea, and Cuba, even the ruling Communist Party of Nepal. PSL leader Brian Becker is a regular on Russian Propaganda channel Russia Today (RT) and has his own show on Russian channel Sputnik.

 

These people are serious communists.

 

Becker and the PSL have ties to several Muslim groups, including the Nation of Islam and the pro-Hamas Muslim American Society.

 

The PSL controls the nationwide anti-U.S. military organization the ANSWER Coalition.

 

Freedom Road Socialist Organization-FightBack! (FRSO-FB)

 

The FRSO-FB split from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization in 1998 but kept the same name. FRSO-FB is centered in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Wisconsin, with some strength in New York, North Carolina, northern Florida, eastern Texas, Arizona, Utah, and California. It’s probably around 500 members strong, more if you count its youth wing, Students for a Democratic Society.

 

The FRSO-FB is hard-core Maoist. It supports China, and three officially designated terrorist organizations: the Communist Party of the Philippines, Colombia’s FARC guerrillas, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Because of these connections, the FBI raided the homes of several FRSO-FB members in September 2010 and issued subpoenas, searching for evidence related to material support of terrorist groups. No charges were ever made.

 

FRSO-FB works closely with the WWP and together have built ties to some pro-Putin elements in Russia. The FRSO-FB also has close ties to Venezuela.

 

Solidarity

 

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, Solidarity is feminist, green, and socialist. Originally formed by ex-SWP members in 1986, Solidarity is affiliated to the Fourth International, a worldwide alliance of Trotskyist parties. Only about 200 members strong, Solidarity has most presence in New York City and California.

 

Solidarity comrades mainly support the Green Party and have some overlap with the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (not the FightBack! group) and with the DSA.

 

League of Revolutionaries for a New America (LRNA)

 

League of Revolutionaries for a New America (LRNA) morphed out of the old Communist Labor Party (CLP), a Maoist grouping that originated out of a pro-China split in the CPUSA in 1958. The early CLP was predominately black and Puerto Rican, and today’s LRNA is largely comprised of “people of color.” The LRNA is extremely secretive about membership, which probably stands at about 300.

 

People’s Tribune was the newspaper of the LRNA, with Rally Comrades! now its official publication. Its best-known affiliate now is probably Caleb Maupin, a convert from the WWP. He is a regular guest on RT and a correspondent for Iran’s PressTV.

 

International Socialist Organization (ISO)

 

Founded in 1977, the International Socialist Organization (ISO) is now America’s largest Trotskyist organization. It was aligned for years with the British Socialist Workers Party, but now has relations with several foreign Trotskyist groupings in Canada, Australia, and Europe. The ISO has 1,500 to 2,000 members and is present in most northern and western U.S. cities and Texas.

 

The ISO is very active on campuses and in the anti-war movement. It works with and inside the Green Party. Many ISO leaders have stood for office on the Green ticket, especially in California.

 

The ISO publishes a daily online and monthly print newspaper, Socialist Worker. ISO also distributes the International Socialist Review and titles from the publishing house Haymarket Books, both of which are run by the non-profit Center for Economic Research and Social Change.

 

Every year, the ISO hosts a well-attended “Socialism” conference in Chicago.

 

Socialist Alternative (SA)

 

Socialist Alternative (SA) is in political solidarity with the Committee for a Workers’ International, a worldwide Trotskyist alliance working in more than 30 countries. SA is the second largest U.S. Trotskyist grouping after ISO, with probably 600 to 800 members active in most states.

 

SA first emerged as “Labor Militant” in 1986, inspired by the example of the UK socialist group Militant Tendency, which sought to infiltrate the British Labour Party. SA advocates for electoral opposition to the Democratic Party and concentrates on running its own candidates. After many electoral campaigns—often on the Green Party ticket—SA’s biggest success to date was electing their comrade Kshama Sawant to Seattle City Council in 2013.

 

Party of Communists, USA (PCUSA)

 

The Party of Communists, USA (PCUSA) split from the CPUSA in 2014, mainly because they thought their party was becoming indistinguishable from the Democratic Party.

 

Though probably under 200 members, the diehard Stalinist PCUSA sees itself as the true leader of American communism and has reached out to more “mainstream” communist parties in Mexico, Cuba, Europe, Russia, and Canada.

 

The PCUSA is strongest in Los Angeles and New York City, where it has some influence in the Transit Workers Union. The PCUSA publishes a magazine, Ideological Fightback!, and runs a front group the U.S. Friends of the Soviet People.

 

Revolutionary Communist Party (Revcom)

 

Revolutionary Communist Party (Revcom) is the cultiest group on the U.S. left. These people worship their great leader Bob Avakian and hang on his every word.

 

Revcom has roots in the Maoist student movement of the Vietnam War era of the 1960s and 1970s. They have active chapters in at least 15 population centers, mainly centered around their Revolution bookshops. Once boasting several thousand members, Revcom today is probably around 500 to 800 members, centered largely in Chicago and the Bay Area.

 

Revcom supports only the most extreme foreign Maoists, such as Peru’s notorious Sendero Luminoso guerrillas.

 

Revcom leaders believe “elections are not the arena where decisions are made about the future direction of the society” and do not participate in them.

 

Their magazine/newsletter Revolution is published weekly in print and online. The Antifa-like “Refuse Fascism” protest group is a front group for Revcom.

 

Revcom’s trademark is burning U.S. flags. If you see black-tee-shirt-clad protesters gleefully immolating Old Glory it’s almost certainly Revcom.

 

The Nature of Communist Organizations

 

Keep in mind that leftist groups often overlap, morph, and split. Like their principles, these groups are forever changing, which adds to the complexity in researching them. One thing that does not change, however, is the goal of all these organizations: global communism, which they believe can only be achieved through revolution.

 

The biggest debate within leftist groups is how to best achieve “Revolution.” Is it through the constant chaos of violent protest, as advised by Leon Trotsky? Is it through the “march through the institutions” as directed by Antonio Gramsci? Or perhaps through race-baiting tactics, turning people against one another, as preferred by Mao Zedong?

 

No matter how this revolution is achieved, the United States is the biggest obstacle in their path. Once the United States succumbs to communism, these activists believe they will be directly overseeing a new world order.
