Crunching the Numbers in the Florida Election Exposes Rampant Fraud


You has anyone noticed the Mainstream Media and Dems cry no election fraud exists in Florida, the truth is in the math. When will the GOP start asking law enforcement to arrest the obvious law breakers?!

 

My suspension elsewhere in the USA (e.g. Georgia, Arizona & New Mexico) where elections are close, mysterious ballots are appearing that when compared to the math of legal registered voters, obvious election fraud is there as well.

 

Below is that truth from Tony Elliott.

Crunching the Numbers in the Florida Election Exposes Rampant Fraud

Bottom line, it is not Russians or any other international entities that are illegally influencing USA elections, it is entirely coming from Socialist insurgents living right here in our country.

Again, we have the perfect display of voter fraud and manipulation taking place in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. It’s getting to the point that these two precincts, in particular, are expected to finagle the votes on every level and at any given election, Federal, state, or otherwise.

 

To most people, when they hear the news that these counties are finding thousands of uncounted votes after the election is over, they think a recount is in order, nothing else because most simply cannot accept the thought that their government could be so corrupt as to fix an election. Since no one really pays close attention to numbers, important facts escape most of us. However, when the numbers involved in these two counties are examined closely, one clearly sees that they just do not add up.

 

Take the total number of registered voters in Miami-Dade County, officially at 1,433,668. Then add up the total number of people who voted for Rick Scott and Bill Nelson which is 801,209 votes between them, subtract the Scott/Nelson 801,209 from the total number of registered voters of 1,433, 668 for a sum of 632,459.

 

Now, taking into consideration that when provisional ballots, discarded ballots, and the contested ballots, many of which were brought in to election officials long after the election was over by private automobiles are counted, there will be well over 150,000 votes. Deduct 150,000 from the 632,459 sum

 

In Palm Beach County, there are 928,696 registered voters, Rick Scott received 244,776 votes, Bill Nelson 343,780 votes for a total of 588,556. Subtract their total from the 928,696 total registered voters for the sum of  340,140.

 

Broward County has 1,167,982 registered voters, officially Rick Scott received 211,119 votes, Bill Nelson 471,334 votes for a total of 982,453 total votes between them. Deduct their total from the total number of registered voters for the sum of 185,529.

 

Between Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, and Broward counties there is a sum of 1,158,128 voters who did not vote for Scott or Nelson, 2,318,218 who did, for a grand total of 3,476, 346 voters between these counties.

 

https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/data-statistics/voter-registration-statistics/voter-registration-monthly-reports/voter-registration-by-county-and-party/

 

Now count the votes for other candidates, not Scott or Nelson, Miami-Dade 8,492, Palm Beach 4,294, Broward 5,008 for a total of 17,794.

 

Add the other votes of 17,794 to the 150,000 estimated votes not counted on election night for a sum of 167,794, add this to the total number of votes cast for Scott and Nelson for a sum of 2,486,012 votes altogether.

 

https://www.politico.com/election-results/2018/florida/

 

Taking into consideration that the absolute highest voter turnout ever in these counties was at about 80% in general elections we can go high this time around and say there was a 60% turnout in this midterm election leaving some 1,390,539 total people who actually voted. The only problem here is we end up having 2,486,012 people these 3 counties claim voted, out of roughly 1,390,539 who could have possibly voted, given the highest percentage rate of turnout.

 

What we have here are some 1,095,473 votes that in reality do not exist.

 

https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/data-statistics/elections-data/voter-turnout/

 

https://www.miamidade.gov/elections/library/reports/voter-registration-statistics-cumulative.pdf

 

The 1,095,473 ghost ballots, in reality, belong to dead Democrats, illegal aliens, individuals who vote multiple times, and the finagling of electronic ballots themselves. This type of fraud in these counties as seen with Scott and Nelson is also being used in all other contests statewide, including the race for governor.

 

This kind of fraud is what is expected when billions of dollars are pouring into the Democrat effort to win elections. George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Michael Bloomberg are the big 3 financial donors involved in the quest to transform the country into a Socialist Banana Republic. Their sphere of financial influence is what is happening in Arizona, Georgia, and a few other states where the initial outcome of votes on election night are still being counted in tight races.

 

Bottom line, it is not Russians or any other international entities that are illegally influencing USA elections, it is entirely coming from Socialist insurgents living right here in our country.

Watching Arizona Voters Drag America Down Again

Pink tutu Sinema - witch prayer

Assuming there was no election fraud in Arizona, it appears a majority of Arizona voters stand with Kyrsten Sinema over the GOP nominee Martha McSally who has officially conceded defeat.

 

The Sinema/McSally battle is a classic example of the ideological divide in the United States of America. McSally is a veteran and Conservative endorsed by President trump, yet she has to Sinema who represents everything contrary to traditional American values. Sinema is a gal whose candidacy would have been hysterically laughed at as a viable candidate even 20 years ago.

 

Here are some spliced excerpts of what represents the Sinema a majority of Arizonans voted into the U.S. Senate:

 

  1. She once depicted American servicemen as scary skeletons exporting “terror” abroad on a flyer protesting the Iraq War

 

  1. Defended men who solicit underage prostitutes

 

  1. Protested the Iraq War in a tutu

 

  1. Once described herself as a “Prada socialist”

 

  1. Called Arizona the “crazy” state and the “meth lab of democracy” 

 

  1. Said she didn’t care if a constituent went and fought for the Taliban

 

  1. Chummy with anarchists: Said it was inappropriate to criticize anarchist property destruction. Also, she worked with a local anarchist group that helped organize a rally.

 

  1. Promoted events at Arizona State University featuring the execrable Lynn Stewart, a lawyer convicted of aiding an Islamist terror organization and its leader

 

  1. Falsely claimed to be Latino (Allegedly)

 

  1. Hosted a radio show on Air America Phoenix with a 9/11 truther

[Blog Editor: PJ Media fails to name the Truther, but the link is to a CNN article that does, viz., Jeff Farias. But CNN does a deficient job explaining Farias’ connection to the debunked 9/11 Truthers. Fox News does a better job:

 

Fox News can also disclose that, in 2005, she befriended a conspiracy theorist who believes 9/11 was perpetrated by the U.S. government.

 

Between 2005 and 2006, Sinema co-hosted a radio show together with Jeff Farias. Farias is a conspiracy theorist who signed a 2008 petition that claims the World Trade Center collapsed because of explosives planted inside the buildings by the U.S. government.

 

Farias frequently promoted 9/11 conspiracy theories during his radio show up until 2010 and was the co-master of a conference in 2007 that rejected the government’s explanation of the 2001 terror attacks. The conference was attended by InfoWars’ Alex Jones.

 

He also asked his guests on his radio shows in 2006 whether they saw the film “Loose Change 9/11” – a film that was produced in part by Jones. The premise of the movie is that the U.S. government planned the 9/11 attacks.]

 

  1. Used to hang out with witches!

(11 Freakiest Things About Arizona Senate Candidate Kyrsten Sinema; By DEBRA HEINE; PJ Media; 10/16/18)

 

Let’s do a recap of who a majority of Arizona voters elected as their new Senator:

 

  • Favored Islamic terrorists over military veterans

 

  • Protected child-prostitute clients

 

  • Sinema was anti-war even though Islamic terrorists attacked U.S. soil

 

  • A Socialist activist

 

  • Sinema has the distinct ironic fact of calling voters crazy (Legal Insurrection has the videos!)

 

  • Sinema supports anarchists, you know – the folks who destroy property to bring chaos hoping to install Communism.

 

  • Sinema so flippant on Islamic terrorists she doesn’t care if Americans fight for the Taliban and promoted a speaking engagement of the Blind Sheik’s (the guy who first tried to bomb the Twin Towers in 1990s) convicted lawyer Lynne Stewart who passed messages to the Sheik’s terrorist buddies.

 

  • Had her similar Pocahontas moment falsely being listed as Latino.

 

  • Sinema was in cahoots with 9/11 Truthers who blame the government for Twin Towers collapse rather than Islamic terrorists.

 

  • AND she encouraged a New Age witch coven (you know – anti-Christian folks) to pray against the Iraq war invasion along with the pink-tutu Code Pink gals.

 

Since Sinema is supportive of witch covens and political ideologies that are anti-Christian it is not surprising that she identifies as a bisexual – an anti-Christian lifestyle.

 

Everything Kyrsten Sinema represents is everything American would not have conceived as an elected official 20, 30, 40, 50 and so years ago.

 

God have mercy on the majority of Arizonan voters contributing to destroying anything that makes America great.

 

Thank God for the huge minority of Arizona voters that still wanted to Make America Great Again that voted for a Pro-Trump GOP candidate.

Dem Election Cheating, Lies & Stealing


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© November 10, 2018

While the Dems expand their voting base by making illegal aliens citizens, allowing illegals to vote, counting dead people’s votes as valid as well as having cartoon characters and pets vote; the Dems are making an art of stealing elections with the mysterious appearance of ballots that by law should have already been counted.

Obvious voter fraud scenarios are developing in the States of Florida, Arizona and Georgia. AND the Dem propaganda machine – err I mean the Mainstream Media – have been dismissing these voting fraud incidents as GOP fabrications.

Below are two similar The Federalist articles explaining the election fraud in Florida and the pro-Dem villains perpetrating it. (I’ll get to Arizona and Georgia in later posts.)

Yes, Democrats Are Trying To Steal The Election In Florida

By Bre Payton

November 9, 2018

The Federalist

Are Florida’s election officials merely incompetent, or is there a sinister plot afoot to throw the election results towards Democrats?

Three days after election night, when Gov. Rick Scott delivered a victory speech and held a comfortable margin of votes against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, loads of ballots favoring the Democratic candidate mysteriously turned up in Palm Beach and Broward counties — where one official has a history of violating election laws.

State law requires that all early and by-mail votes be tabulated within 30 minutes of the polls closing, but three days later, Broward County Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes still refuses to specify how many people voted, how many ballots have been tabulated, and how many are left to count.

Since Tuesday, 80,000 new votes have mysteriously turned up in Broward County and another 15,000 in Palm Beach County. These newly discovered ballots have been “breaking almost 3-to-1 in favor of Democrats,” narrowing the margin between these two candidates to likely force a recount after Saturday’s noon deadline requiring all counties to turn over election results to the state Division of Elections.

 

Snipes’s History Of Incompetence and Lawbreaking

 

Snipes is no stranger to controversy. Her office has broken the law and repeatedly botched election counting. In 2016 a judge ruled that her office had violated federal and state laws by destroying ballots too quickly after a congressional race.

Then-Democratic congressional candidate Tim Canova asked to see the paper ballots to examine voter irregularities in his failed bid to unseat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Snipes ignored his request and destroyed the ballots months later, even signing a certificate saying there was no ongoing legal challenge involving the ballots.

Why would she sign such a certificate when she knew there was a pending legal challenge? Was it to cover something up, or was it because she simply didn’t care about telling the truth and adhering to the law? Either answer is equally troubling, as one might hope the person in charge of overseeing the integrity of elections would be honest and forthcoming, or at a minimum follow the rules.

In 2003, about 58,000 ballots were reported missing and in 2004, her office was counting votes days after the election took place. In 2006, her office was still counting ballots long after other counties had submitted their results, due to the possibility that ballots were still left in the machines.

Local reporters have asked her repeatedly what has been taking so long to count the votes, and have gotten no clear answers. Jeff Weisner, an investigative reporter for ABC affiliate Local 10 News, confronted Snipes on camera about what is taking so long to tabulate vote counts, to which she explained that other “counties didn’t have 600,000 votes out there.”

“Well, Miami-Dade did,” Weinsier said.

“Well, have you been inside my — never mind, let me go check. I’ll check,” Snipes said.

https://cdnapisec.kaltura.com/p/2031101/sp/203110100/embedIframeJs/uiconf_id/36218821/partner_id/2031101?iframeembed=true&playerId=media-preview_0_0_2qvvp9q7&entry_id=0_2qvvp9q7&flashvars%5BstreamerType%5D=auto

Why is she so flippant about flouting Florida’s election laws? With a U.S. Senate race on the line, one might think this deserves a somewhat believable explanation. Instead she’s offered flimsy excuses or nothing.

Republicans Are Rightly Worried Election Integrity Is Shot

 

On Thursday night, Scott filed a lawsuit against Broward and Palm Beach counties for their refusal to be transparent. Following Scott’s lawsuit, Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed it will launch investigations into these counties and their respective supervisors, The Hill reported.

At a court hearing on Friday morning in Palm Beach County, Judge Krista Marx ordered that “any ballot that the supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher or her staff throws out will need to go in front of the canvassing board,” NBC affiliate WPTV reported. “Marx also ordered Bucher to provide a list by 4 p.m. of everyone who voted by provisional ballot.”

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio has been on a tweet storm decrying a lack of transparency from Broward County officials.

Early Voting in #BrowardCounty ended 108 hours ago. Every other county, including neighboring Miami-Dade (which had 100k more votes cast) was able to canvass, tabulate & report to state by deadline. But #Broward still hasn’t finished & won’t disclose how many ballots are left.

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 9, 2018

The incompetence of & the violation of #Florida reporting requirements by #BrowardCounty elections dept could impact more than just the outcome

The last thing our already dangerously divided nation needs is an important election 1/2 our people believe was rigged by the other ½

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 9, 2018

They have good reason to worry, as the newly discovered ballots have already tipped the scales in favor of Democrat Nikki Fried over Rep. Matt Caldwell by 2,841 votes in the Florida agriculture commissioner race.

Snipe’s office broke the law by failing to give a vote count on time. And the validity of the newly discovered ballots heavily favoring Democrats should be questioned.

Democrats Confident Broward County Will Tip Them a Win

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, one of Nelson’s attorneys said he’s confident the untabulated votes that mysteriously keep turning up without explanation will carry Democrats to victory.

‘We believe at the end of the day, Sen. Nelson is going to be declared the winner and return to the U.S. Senate,’ said Marc Elias, a recount attorney hired by the Nelson campaign, in a conference call.

Elias pointed to significant numbers of ballots not yet tabulated in Broward, where even Snipes said Wednesday night, ‘I can’t give you an exact number. I’m not sure. I’m really not sure.’

Already, however, national media outlets are working to discredit election integrity fears. NPR ran a story with the following headline: “As Florida Races Narrow, Trump And Scott Spread Claims Of Fraud Without Evidence.” This was The Washington Post’s headline: “After Trump and Scott cry ‘fraud,’ critics pounce on Broward County’s troubled election history.”

Why are Democrats so sure these missing ballots will hold the key to victory? Why are members of the news media attempting to minimize legitimate concerns about the validity of the election results?

Democrats frequently poo poo concerns of election integrity, oppose voter ID laws, push for former felons to regain the right to vote, and dismiss reports of illegal immigrants and dead people casting ballots. It’s no surprise the party whose only concern about ballot integrity comes when the Constitution gets in the way of electoral victory is nonchalant about what’s happening in Florida. The murkier the electoral process is, the more the Democratic Party wins.

Broward County Is An Embarrassment, And The Potential For A Stolen Florida Election Is Real

By Ben Domenech

November 9, 2018

The Federalist

Every day that we do not have a total tabulation of the ballots, the more Republican voters will with all good reason begin to believe the election results are being manipulated.

Last night CBS News’ John Dickerson tweeted “The Florida voting system is the Florida Man of voting systems.” But at least Florida Man combines stupid fun entertainment with incompetence and hubris, as opposed to depressing levels of corruption and idiocy.

Comes now Dr. Brenda C. Snipes, the key election official in Broward County, Florida has presided for the past 72 hours over a level of bureaucratic incompetence – in the best spin of the situation – or utter corruption in the worst when it comes to counting the ballots from her county.

Last night Governor and would-be Senator Rick Scott announced he was filing a lawsuit against her – not one claiming anything about the ballots being counted, but simply demanding that she live up to the regulatory obligation to tell us how many ballots there are. Again, this is not a lawsuit about counting, just about knowing how many ballots you have left to count, which is required to be disclosed by law.

This demand to know the facts is being described by some Democrats as an attempt to prevent votes being counted. That’s how ridiculous the situation is.

Here’s the situation: Florida law 102.141 4(b) details the process by which ballots shall be counted, and it requires that within 30 minutes of polls closing, you publish an estimated count of the ballots in hand, regularly updated afterward. Every other county in Florida other than Broward has done this. Broward’s Dr. Snipes has not. Local journalists have shouted questions at her, and the local officials have demured [sic] or said she was too busy or said she was “taking a break”.

In my humble opinion, “she’s taking a break” is the greatest bureaucratic incompetence excuse I have ever heard. The point is that Florida election officials will apparently tell you what they are required to tell you at a time of their choosing, not before.

What is infuriating about Florida and Broward is that the county is required to tell us how many total ballots they have, and they refuse. There is no legitimate reason justification for that. None.

The media – both local and national – should be raising all sorts of hell about the absence of this easily tabulated information. Every day that we do not have a total tabulation of the ballots in this key county, with the most basic level of transparency, the more Republican voters will with all good reason begin to believe the election results are being manipulated.

When you have a sitting Senator from the state in Marco Rubio sounding the alarm over this, in a way that obviously is an embarrassment to the state, you understand something terrible is happening.

More here from Brian Burgess on the ground in Florida.

“The newly counted ballots, which are breaking almost 3-to-1 in favor of Democrats, have triggered a likely hand recount, a machine recount, a lawsuit, a law enforcement investigation, and accusations from Republicans that Democrats are literally trying to steal the election…

“In a secluded room away from the well-wishers gathered at his victory party in Naples, Florida, Scott’s team did some basic math and determined the remaining uncounted precincts couldn’t possibly contain enough Democrat votes for Nelson to overcome the 60,000-vote deficit. At midnight, Scott claimed victory in a subdued speech, then retired to bed.

“When Republicans woke the next morning, they were stunned to learn Scott’s lead had shrunk by 22,000 votes, a seemingly impossible mathematical feat. Most of the newly counted ballots came from Broward County, but some were added from Palm Beach County (yes, that one). With Scott’s lead now down to just 38,000 votes, murmurs of a potential recount began to build. By mid-afternoon, more cartons of Democrat-leaning ballots had been added to the statewide total, trimming Scott’s margin over Nelson to around 30,000 votes.

“Even at that point, Republicans didn’t seem overly concerned. After all, 30,000 votes is a lot to overcome, especially when all that remained to be counted were a few handfuls of provisional ballots, overseas military ballots likely favoring Republicans, and some straggling vote-by-mail and early ballots. And while the governor’s race had also tightened, it remained outside the mandatory recount margin.

“That all changed on Thursday morning, when Republicans woke for the second day in a row to learn that overnight, still more Democrat votes had been dumped into the system, cutting Scott’s lead by 8,000 votes, putting it well within the mandatory hand-recount range.

“Reporters, by now curious about why Broward County was still counting ballots when hurricane-ravaged Bay County had their work wrapped up on election night, asked Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes if she knew how many uncounted ballots remained.

“Not sure. I’m really not sure. But we are working on those,” she told CBS 4 News in Miami.

“A few hours later, Snipes posted another 11,300 ballots to the state’s Division of Elections. Those new votes favored Democrats by more than 2-to-1, helping Bill Nelson close the gap even further, but also triggering mandatory recounts in the governor’s race, and flipping the race for agriculture commissioner from Republican to Democrat.”

What’s worse, according to Scott’s lawsuit and as this Florida State University professor details, Snipes has denied access to their campaign to view the actual creation of new ballots – ones that are being created in replacement of purportedly damaged ballots submitted by voters:

18/ State law *recognizes* that the literal creation of new ballots to be counted is one of the most sensitive and vulnerable steps in the process. That’s why it requires the creation of replacement ballots must occur “in the presence of witnesses.” Fla. Stat. 101.5614(4)(a)

— michaelmorley11 (@michaelmorley11) November 9, 2018

19/ @FlGovScott lawsuit provides sworn evidence that the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections prohibited his campaign’s reps from monitoring the creation of replacement ballots. Election officials are filling out new ballots, but the candidate’s reps apparently couldn’t see

— michaelmorley11 (@michaelmorley11) November 9, 2018

Snipes is clearly an election official with a number of dubious past decisions, including many that have put her in the courtroom. Her emphatic and continued refusal to do what she is legally required to do – tell us how many ballots there are – is astounding. No matter the party that benefits or that currently stands in the lead in Florida, her behavior is unconscionable if voters are to have any faith in this process being transparent and unimpeachable.

The Final Fall Scenario?

 

By Justin O. Smith

11/7/18 6:35 am

Facebook Group Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists

 

America will be unable to continue for much longer through the “give and take” of Congressional politics, when one views the reality of the Democratic Party as thinly veiled Communists of today, who simply take and never give in any so-called “compromise”. Look at the violence that followed President Trump’s election and the tacit support given violent rioters of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and one will understand that the far and wide disparity between the ideology of the Democrats and the Republicans will only lead to greater civil strife, if not an eventual civil war.

 

Today, Americans hear young socialists and communists within our nation talking about “fundamentally transforming” America, which simply means creating a new authoritarian socialist state for America and destroying the Constitution and the Republic, “by any means necessary”.

 

And now we see a self-avowed socialist from New York elected to the House … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez … who has the sense God gave a mushroom, exhibiting just how immoral and greedy the people of her district are and how far New York has fallen. We also see an anti-American Muslim … Keith Ellison elected as the Attorney General of Minnesota.

 

Recent talk by leading Democrats of coming together in unity for the sake of America is just that … Talk … wait until they are sworn in.

 

The Battle for the Heart and Soul of America will continue for some time. What is happening this day – at this time in our history – at this hour – is the most sickening thing I have witnessed in my many years on this earth. The war is ahead of us – and the ending will be much like that of the final Fall of Rome.

 

Be blessed my friends, for we are on the final journey.

A Challenge to Point out Communism in Dem Party Platform PT 3


John R. Houk

© November 5, 2018

 

These thoughts on a Communist infected Dem Party is the result of a MeWe Group individual challenge to show the existence of Communism in the last Dem Party Platform (2016).

 

I used a Platform Summary as an examination point since the original is a lengthy PDF. You will not find direct accolades to Marxist principles, yet Parts 1 & 2 demonstrate an affinity for a Marxist agenda:

 

Part One HERE & Part Two HERE

 

The current scope of the Democratic Party is very much aligned with Marxist/Communist/Socialist principles which is a complete contradiction to the Free Market, Individualism and government by People approval (rather than government fiat) initiated by the great and very successful principles promoted by America’s Founding Fathers.

Here in Part Three I address the last two items in the Dem Platform: Religious Liberty and Torture.

 

Religious Liberty

 

Opposes attempts to impose a religious test to bar immigrants or refugees from entering the United States.

 

Supports a “progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate.”

 

Supports protecting both Muslims and religious minorities and the “fundamental right of freedom of religion” in the Middle East.

 

The use of the term “Religious Liberty” in the Dem Platform is a hypocritical misnomer. What the Dems really mean is the Liberty to be free from Religion AND NOT the Liberty to practice Religion in all aspects of society socially and politically.

 

When the Dems say “no religious test” for immigrants or refugees, they are saying that people who practice a religion that has a theo-politico ideology that undermines the rule of law based on the U.S. Constitution, the government should freely allow foreigners that would break the law can move to the USA and hence indeed break the law. Of course the religion the Dems have in mind is Islam.

 

A WND article in 2009 examines how Islam contradicts portions of Constitutional Amendments (Excerpted – Be encouraged to read ALL Islamic theopolitical contradictions to the U.S. rule of law).

 

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

 

Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion.

 

Quran Sura 4:89,

 

Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them.”

 

In Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari (Vol. 9, Book 84, No. 57),

 

Muhammad said: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”

Islamic law relegates non-Muslims to “dhimmi” status, where they are not to propagate their customs amongst Muslims and cannot display a Cross or a Star of David.

 

The First Amendment:

 

Congress shall not abridge “the freedom of speech,”

 

Islamic law:

 

Enforces dhimmi status on non-Muslims, prohibiting them from observing their religious practices publicly, raising their voices during prayer or ringing church bells.

The First Amendment:

 

Congress cannot take away “the right of the people to peaceably assemble,”

 

Islamic law:

 

Non-Muslims cannot build any new places of worship or repair any old places Muslims have destroyed; they must allow Muslims to participate in their private meetings; they cannot bring their dead near the graveyards of Muslims or mourn their dead loudly.

 

 

The Second Amendment:

 

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,”

 

Islamic law:

 

Non-Muslims cannot possess arms, swords or weapons of any kind.

 

The 14th Amendment:

 

guarantees citizens “equal protection of the laws,”

Quran:

 

Does not consider Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims as equal to Muslims before the law.

 

15th Amendment:

 

Guarantees “the right of the citizens … to vote shall not be denied … on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude,”

 

Islamic law:

 

Does not allow voting, as democracy is considered people setting themselves in the place of Allah by making their own laws.

The above excerpts is not even close of the contradictions between the rule of law based on the U.S. Constitution and Islam’s theopolitical law.

 

So one has to wonder the reasoning behind Dems demanding that people who revere (wittingly or unwittingly) an anti-Constitution rule of law based on a religion. Especially since Dems believe the government should be free from religion (by which Dems mean Judeo-Christian moral standards).

 

A clue might be found in the notorious 45 COMMUNIST GOALS derived from Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” Royal A. Brown III posted “Scorecard: The 45 Goals in ‘The Naked Communist’ to turn America into a Socialist State” on the Dr. Rich Swier blogsite. By “Scorecard” Brown evaluates which goals have been accomplished in the Communist agenda for America.

 

Here are some excerpts from Brown’s 2018 post:

 

It is very important that everyone realize just how far the Communist Manifesto and its goals have been advanced in the United States …

 

George Soros and other rich leftists use some of their billions to finance over 250 socialist/communist/leftist groups in the U.S. that are doing their best to “resist”, undermine our President and his agenda as well as our Constitution and Republic. He is a seditionist and I don’t understand why he hasn’t been charged and convicted for treason. He like many establishment, global RINOs advocate for a New World Order in which America is definitely not first.

 

 

You are about to read a list of 45 goals that were spelled out in the 1958 book “The Naked Communist” and were entered into the Congressional Record back on Jan. 10,1963, thanks to Hon. A.S. Herlong, Jr. of FL . As you read this, 54 years later, you may be shocked by the events that have played themselves out. Source – Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35, 01/10/1963.

 

Among sources include the Democratic Socialists of America’s own website.

 

 

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. …

 

ONGOING – the Progressives in our Congress and the current Administration are constantly pressing for this – this is a primary goal of their chief benefactor – George Soros. Their efforts are being slowly achieved through regulations put into place by Federal agencies such as the EPA. The regulations now being put into place by these agencies are slowly steering the US toward control under the UN and a one world government . The Agenda 21 protocol is most certainly a part of this effort and we see the efforts on the left to engage these tactics at every level of our society.

 

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

 

DONE – the Communist Party and the Democratic Socialists of America and many other Communist oriented groups are alive and well in America including our major Unions – see the book Barack Obama and the Enemies Within by Trevor Loudon. This is a classic tactic of the socialist/communist left. They use our freedoms against us i.e. free speech. Our leftist lawmakers protect these groups under the guise of free speech and legislators on the right fail to take on the responsibility of recognizing and dealing with destructive and undermining activities. This has now gone to the extreme in our nation as police are being slaughtered by anarchists across the nation.

 

 

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

 

DONE -there are 65 members of the House Progressive Caucus who associate with the Democratic Socialists of America. Most other Democrats in Congress are socialists and believe in the nanny state. Progressives own the Senate including many RINOs that help the Democrats. (Rush provided excellent insight on this very subject today)

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

 

DONE – The Supreme Court has made abortions legal, struck down the Defense of Marriage Act at the Federal Level and also ordered that States with Protection of Marriage Laws even when in State Constitutions are unconstitutional. LGBT rights are now considered as a protected class the same as minorities. The attack on American Christianity and traditional customs, traditions and values continues – prayer has been taken out of schools and public events; attempts have been made to take God out of everything including the national Oath, coinage, National Anthem and religious symbols such as the Ten Commandments and Nativity scenes. Our morals and family structure have declined drastically as dysfunctional behavior increases. 40% of all babies are born out of wedlock (73% among blacks), marriage has declined to less than 50%, gang activity has increased, entitlement living has permeated at least 50% of our society who pay no taxes and illegal immigration continues. Attempts to curb such behavior are met with cries of racism, bigotry, hate crimes, violation of women’s rights, an attack on women’s health care or some other civil rights violation. The UN has placed the United States on their list of nations with poor human rights records and our Attorney General has sued states trying to enforce immigration laws. (Bold text Blog Editor’s)

 

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

 

DONE – there is no doubt our public schools K-1-12 & Colleges and Universities are bastions of liberalism and progressivism; our public schools no longer teach traditional values/character development nor the Constitution and often use revisionist history and social studies curriculums and textbooks. Our teacher unions and Fed Dept. of Education dominated education system fights attempts to provide voucher or charter school options; eliminate tenure or impose accountability standards. One of the 8 ways Sal Alinsky advocated to turn a country to socialism was #6) Education – take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school. This is happening with COMMON CORE and other Dept. of Education initiatives. Most states have over a 30% drop out rate from free public high school educations, another root cause of poverty.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

 

ONGOING – look no further than the recent OCCUPY WALL STREET anarchist activities supported by our President, Vice President and many Progressive members of Congress as well as some City Officials and other government officials such as the Mayors of New York, Oakland and Atlanta and the Director of the National Park Services. Also look at the rise of student flash mobs to rob and loot in many of the Democrat controlled cities. On many college campuses, conservative speakers are not allowed and those conservative students views are restricted to “speaking zones” as a result of liberal student protests.

 

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

 

SUCCESSFUL – in poll after poll over 85% of the press corps admit to being liberal and voting for Democrats. Editorials and Commentaries across the country are unabashedly biased towards Democrat policies and the Current Administration as are so called news programs of the mainstream media. All of the major networks were undeniably in the tank for Obama in the last election with 4 – 1 favorability ratios for Democrat candidates and 1 – 4 favorability towards Republican candidates. The liberal media throws softball questions at Democrat candidates and “gotcha” questions at Republican or Tea Party movement candidates.

 

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

 

SUCCESSFUL – There is no doubt that the mainstream Television media and Motion Picture industry and their productions are mostly progressive in nature and often show left wing political bias. Reporting is frequently slanted left as are commentaries and movies. The Obama administration has pushed the “Fairness Doctrine” through the FCC but has not been able to instigate it which would destroy the conservative and profitable radio talk shows. Control over the internet using “net neutrality” has now been implemented by the FCC and could lead to suppression of conservative views on the internet as well as free internet for those already receiving govt. benefits. It should be noted that net neutrality was in effect before Ronald Reagan took office. He successfully got rid of that law. The left is now aggressively pursuing reinstating net neutrality, thinking that a new generation of Americans may once again accept it with the correct persuasion and pressure from other areas of our society.

The left wing entertainment industry have also touted the LGBT movement and multiculturalism in the shows and particularly in their commercials.

 

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

 

SUCCESS – Even network television now uses words that were XXX rated 40 years ago.

There is a huge double standard here as the word police want to reduce free speech by conservatives – Rush Limbaugh is ridiculed and boycotted for calling a Democrat hack lobbying for free birth control at a Catholic college a Slut but Bill Maher can call a Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin a Cunt on his HBO special and get away with it. The Federal govt. changes words it doesn’t like to suit its policies “Obama-Speak” like prohibiting the use of the words Islam or Islamists, eliminating the phrase war on terrorism and the word terrorist from its vocabulary replacing it with such phrases as “extremists” “man-caused disaster”, “workplace violence” etc. Muslims in the U.S. want to eliminate any negative use of Islam or Muhammad from our language in clear violation of our 1st Amendment rights.

 

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

 

DONE – shows on network, prime time TV today would have been rated XXX several decades ago. Nudity bordering on pornography, sexual displays, obscenity, violence, anti-Christian messages, progressive ideologies, etc. are the standard in most of the mainstream television, movie, and print media today. Remember, in order to have Liberty a people need to have Freedom tempered by morality. The intent of our founding fathers upon designing our Republic was the assumption that Godly people would inhabit our nation and would govern themselves for the most part due to their adherence to the Word of God. The Communists are working hard to eliminate morality leaving us with un-tempered Freedom which is nothing but anarchy.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

 

DONE – The Supreme Court repealed DOMA and ruled in support of the LGBT community demands. They are now free to legally marry, are featured in gay rights parades and in personnel policies of most major corporations as a ploy to convince American Society they are accepted and are a much larger percentage of the population than they really are. LGBT couples adopt children and School Districts adopt books featuring LGBT people as if they are normal. Our lame-stream media assist them in their activities and goals. Obama has now stated he favors same sex marriages. Even though 33 states had marriage protection laws, 29 of which are inculcated in their Constitutions Federal Courts have now ruled these unconstitutional. The military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” law has been repealed by Congress and replaced with an LGBT month and active recruitment of LGBTs. Already, the fastest growing trend of sexual assaults in the military are male on male; morale and good order and discipline have suffered under this social experimentation.

 

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

 

PARTIAL SUCCESS – Black nationalist churches such as that of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright attended by the Obama’s for over 20 years are on the rise. Such churches often preach racists hate towards other races and anti-Americanism. The Unitarian Universalist, Humanist and Scientology movements are examples of “social” religion. There is ample evidence of the ACLU working hard to eliminate Christian traditions in this country. Our government also looks for their interpretation of “Separation of Church and State”, a concept not found in the Constitution but begun by a Supreme Court ruling, in order to prevent our churches from actively being involved in politics especially where church values conflict with government values. IRS tax rules also hamstring the ability of tax exempt churches to be involved in politics – pastors, priests, rabbis, etc. are no supposed to spend more than 20% of their time talking politics from the podium or diesis. However, they look the other way when it comes to the so called churches of Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and Louis Farrakhan.

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

 

DONE – the law of the land has eliminated all prayer from schools and public gatherings. In 1962 the Supreme Court again declared that prayer in school was unconstitutional. In 1963 the Warren Court stopped schools from allowing Bible reading in classes. In 1980 the Supreme Court declared that posting the Ten Commandments in a school classroom violated the Constitution of the United States. Removing the belief in God from the Government and schools is #7 Religion – on Sal Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to turn a country socialist. (Bold text Blog Editor’s)

 

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

 

ONGOING – The interpretation of the Constitution as a “living document” is the mantra of liberals and progressive in Congress, the White House and the media. Unfortunately, many in the Libertarian Party have joined the Progressives in this effort. Obamacare is overt proof that progressive politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid ignore our Constitution when it suits their legislative purposes. Obama recently challenged the Supreme Court’s authority for “judicial review” as they considered the Constitutionality of Obamacare. Even a Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader-Ginsburg recently stated that our Constitution is not a model for developing foreign powers. Now we have University Professors and others calling for the elimination of our Constitution as outdated. POTUS Obama has said he has a pen and a phone and if Congress won’t act on his agenda he will continue to rule by fiat using Executive Orders, Memos and guidance to federal departments to emplace controlling regulations, recess appointments, etc. It should be noted that a major part of this challenge of the Constitution by the president is a result of a Congress that is failing to speak up and do its job as one of the branches of our government using the system of checks and balances put in place by our founding fathers as a protection from just this sort of behavior. See http://majorityleader.gov/TheImperialPresidency/

 

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

 

ONGOING – Progressives and the media rarely mention the accomplishments of our founding fathers and when they do usually to criticize one or more like Thomas Jefferson for being a slave owner, completely ignoring all of his accomplishments. Since these men founded their beliefs in God’s natural laws and sincerely believed liberty and freedom came from God not government, they are in direct conflict with the beliefs of socialists, communists and progressives.

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

 

ONGOING – Traditional educators tend to be liberal and control School District Administrations and often School Boards. As such they control the textbooks used by the School District. Many school districts teach revisionist history from revisionist textbooks choosing instead to emphasize international history and multiculturalism. In many cases America is made out to be the bad guy in this process – a prime example being the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan during WWII. Civics, American History and the role of our Constitution in ensuring our freedom.

 

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture-education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

 

DONE – our tax laws and other laws awarding welfare benefits as administered by Federal and State welfare agencies have changed the culture of the US to an entitlement state where 50% or more pay not taxes but get money back. Today, a record number of people are on Food Stamps; Housing Assistance; SSI disability & cash assistance; Medicaid; and other assistance such as free cell phones and cable television. The Federal workers Union is the largest of all the unions and the Teachers Union control our education system. Hundreds of socialist organizations now exist such as moveon.org and media matters, and ACORN. Unions such as the AFL-CIO and the SEIU actively participate in politics supporting most liberal causes and transporting members across states to participate in bashing anyone trying to control spending that involves reduction in union benefits or workers paying more of a fair share.

Additionally, all 8 of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for radicals fit in this category and are being implemented by the Obama Administration

1) Healthcare –Control healthcare and you control the people This has started under the ever changing law and rules of Obamacare.

2) Poverty –Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. Instead of programs to defeat the root causes of poverty which is dysfunctional behavior the govt. and so called minority leaders continue to blame society and racism. Instead action should be taken on the real root causes including dropping out of HS; young, unwed mothers; drug use; gang activity, etc.

3) Debt –Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty. Debt has soared by 7T since 2008 and now totals over $18T headed to $20T+ by the time Obama leaves office. The 10T+ that will have accumulated under Obama is more than every other Presidents debt added together. The Fed prints money under QE to artificially prop up the economy and keeps interest rates low to prop up the stock market which is headed for a fall. POTUS and Democrats in Congress consistently push for more taxes – Obamacare adds 20 new taxes.

4) Gun Control –Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state. The 2nd Amendment is under constant attack with the latest push to force gun registration by those deemed to have some mental problems including PTSD. This could include hundreds of thousands of veterans. The next step after national registration is gun confiscation.

5) Welfare –Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)We now are a nanny state with more people on welfare than people working. Looking for work was removed by executive order as a requirement to receive unemployment benefits. Food stamps, SSI benefits, disability pay outs, govt. subsidized housing, free cell phones, etc. are at an all time high.

6) Education –Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school. Ongoing – newest method is Common Core; no child left behind legislation has also been reauthorized.

7) Religion –Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools –Christianity and Jeudism are constantly under attack by intolerant liberals now joined by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim groups all with the help of the ACLU.

8) Class Warfare –Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. Obama’s latest campaign is to push for income equality rather than opportunity meaning wealth redistribution a concept which will kill free market incentives and damage the economy. Progressives are calling for higher progressive taxes on the upper incomes and on corporations.

….in short create a generation of dependent slaves……the left in the US has shown to be quite effective at that while at the same time the right is either playing along, or caught like a deer in the headlights and completely ineffective at dealing with these tactics effectively.

 

 

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

 

DONE – Abolished 1975.

 

 

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

 

ONGOING -The breakdown of the core family and the ever increasing divorce rates as well as decreasing rates of marriage and increases I births at a younger age and out of wedlock has certainly occurred. The family is no longer neatly defined as a married man and woman with children but now includes single parent homes; homosexual parents; unwed parents; and very young people as parents. The root causes of poverty are related to dysfunctional behavior. All of this discredits the family unit. #2 on Saul Alynski’s Rules for Radicals is to increase the poverty level as high as possible. Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live i.e. a generation of slaves. Under the Obama Administration poverty has increased along with food stamps, disability compensation, free cell phones, govt. housing assistance, etc.

 

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.

 

ONGOING -One has to look no further than the incidents of Flash Mobs, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) and the Black Lives Matter movement to see this in action. Our current Administration has allied themselves with this 99/1 movement invoking Marxist principles of “fairness” to encourage income redistribution through more taxes on the affluent and on corporations. State and local Police are being marginalized by denigrating their importance, overemphasizing police brutality and a call for a national police force. The current move for gun control and limiting of the 2nd Amendment could fit into this category.

READ ENTIRETY

 

 

The excerpts I listed from these 45 Communist goals to transform America demonstrate the Dem Party’s true nature toward Religious Liberty. The anti-Judeo-Christian nature of these goals is the ONLY reason their Dem support for anti-Constitution Islamic cultural immigration to the United States of America.

 

The last item on the 2016 Dem Party Platform Summary:

 

Torture

 

Opposes the use of torture and other war crimes by the United States.

 

Hmm… All I can say is, “Well, DUH!” Torture in the sense that Nazis, Imperial Japan, Communist Russia (former USSR), Red China, Communist North Korea, Communist North Vietnam (now just Vietnam – the non-Communist South was conquered soon after U.S. withdrawal) and Islamic dominated nations MUST be opposed. This kind torture led to maiming, dismemberment and/or death.

 

That referred to as torture by the Dems though is better described as enhanced interrogation against Enemy Combatants who have an actual goal of torture and death of non-Muslims, especially American soldiers.

 

To extract life-saving information I have no problem with any enhanced interrogation that does not maim, dismember or kill.

 

A VOTE FOR ANY DEMOCRAT IS A VOTE FOR A COMMUNISTIC FUTURE IN AMERICA! For God’s sake – DON’T DO IT!

DO YOU REALLY WANT DEMOCRATS RUNNING AMERICA?


While blog surfing I ran into a Facebook post by a person calling himself John Gaultier. I suspect the name is a pseudonym. If his name is a pseudonym I can understand why. He is quite vocal and unrepentant in his Conservatism. Indeed, he calls himself an “UNRELENTING FEROCIOUS CONSERVATIVE” (from the John Gaultier Facebook about page under Details About John).

 

As of today, Gaultier has a pinned post on the “Closed” Facebook Group called – wait for it – Ferocious Conservative. The pinned post is a Promote the Red Wave Vote post. Indeed, Gaultier has put together a Facebook video that he encourages readers to make GO VIRAL. I concur!

 

After the video Gaultier provides a rather lengthy list of why voting Republican is good for America. So, even if you are an Independent (like me), vote Republican. If you are Dem, realize the Dem Party is doing more harm under its current political construction than any good.

 

VOTE RED WAVE IN 2018!

A Challenge to Point out Communism in Dem Party Platform PT 2


John R. Houk

© October 27, 2018

Part ONE can be read HERE.

 

As a recap for the purpose of this post:

 

I recently received criticism on a MeWe group for sharing a Justin Smith post entitled “Liberty First and Foremost”. The beginning of Justin’s essay said this:

 

The Democratic Party has grown to be the enemy within our country, and the communist Democrats working in federal positions are the same as foreign agents infiltrated into federal agencies, seeking to do whatever is needed to end this republic.

 

Chris Worth at this MeWe group said something to the effect he read equating the Dems to a “Communist” and decided the post was worthless and hence encouraged readers there was no need to read further.

 

And now to continue to show that the Dems have an affinity for Communism from their 2016 Party Platform.

 

Resuming with the summary of the Party Platform:

 

LGBT Issues

 

Supports comprehensive federal nondiscrimination protections “for all LGBT Americans, to guarantee equal rights in areas such as housing, employment, public accommodations, credit, jury service, education, and federal funding.”

 

Opposes all state efforts to “discriminate against LGBT individuals, including legislation that restricts the right to access public spaces.”

 

Supports combatting [sic] LGBT youth homelessness and improving school climates.

 

Supports ensuring support LGBT elders have access to necessary health care, and “protect LGBT people from violence—including ending the crisis of violence against transgender Americans.”

 

Supports promotion of “LGBT human rights” around the world and ensuing “America’s foreign policy is inclusive of LGBT people.

 

As a Christian Conservative that supports Biblical Morality Dems and all people of the Left vilify me as –gasp– a homophobe. The Dem support for the normalization of all things homosexual (Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender and now days the adding of Queer) is a Marxist elite design to displace the Christian Values that have been the backbone of American culture for two centuries. ONLY in the mid-1900s with the infection of Leftist thinking in the media, entertainment, academia and the Courts has the homosexual lifestyle been normalized via the power of propaganda waged in those venues.

 

Today it is even difficult to use general terms on Internet search engines to locate data on how Americans rejected homosexuality as normal because the search engines are dominated by Left-think. In Part One I lost patience looking for the data on American attitudes about the LGBTQ lifestyle and ended up using homosexual activist thinking making it sound as if the homosexual-by-choice (I don’t buy into the Gay gene concept) people are struggling victims. To that end here the title I found and used in Part One when the Dems suggestively place LGBTQ discrimination under the section “Discrimination and Racial Issues”: Being Gay Used to Be Illegal. And here is a quote from that post about society’s concurrence with Biblical Morality by illegalizing the homosexual lifestyle:

 

“Being gay” (same-sex activity and partnership) used to be illegal in the U.S. and the U.K., and being gay is still illegal in many parts of the world. The details are complex.

 

Prior to 20th-century reforms, punishment for homosexuality in places like the United States and the Britain included incarceration, fines, castration, and even death. Even after aspects of same-sex relationships were decriminalized, discrimination and prejudice on behalf of the state continued in many respects. [1][2][3]

 

LGBT rights throughout world history is a complex subject. Some cultures had progressive stances on LGBT issues long before Britain and the US, yet other cultures still consider “being gay” a crime punishable by death and imprisonment today. Even today, state-sponsored LGBT discrimination still exists in the West. For instance, same sex marriage only recently became legal in the U.S. and still illegal in Northern Ireland. [4] (Being Gay Used to Be Illegal; Researched by Thomas DeMichele; FactMyth.com; Published – 3/22/16. Last Updated – 8/27/16)

 

You can tell the Leftist slant by the above website when the Christian attitude toward the LGBTQ lifestyle is described as “discrimination” or “still illegal” rather than shunned due moral agreement with the Creator of all that exists:

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [a]comprehend it. ( John 1: 1-5 NKJV)

 

1 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [a]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [b]manifest [c]in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [d]Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [a]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [b]men, leaving the natural use of the [c]woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1: 18-21, 24-27 NKJV)

 

In Communism religion challenges the authority of the State and must be suppressed by any means necessary. As such here is an illuminating quote about the reason Communism disdains religion:

 

A communist government has to have the people looking at them as a god or as diety. After all, a communist government basically decides what people do in terms of career, in terms of where they live, what choices they have for food, clothing, medical care and how much money they “live on.” Allowing the people to have a “god” places the government at number two in terms of authority and prominence in a citizen’s life and might lead to a rebelion [sic].

 

Karl Marx, the father of communism, said, “Communism begins from the outset with atheism.” (He said this in  Introduction to A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right).

 

Vladimir Lenin similarly wrote: “A Marxist must be a materialist, i. e., an enemy of religion, but a dialectical materialist, i. e., one who treats the struggle against religion not in an abstract way, not on the basis of remote, purely theoretical, never varying preaching, but in a concrete way, on the basis of the class struggle which is going on in practice and is educating the masses more and better than anything else could”(He said this in his book,  Private Property and Communism). (Communism Persecutes Religion; NoCommunism.com)

 

Dem support for an LGBTQ agenda smacks entirely of Communist remolding of cultural thinking.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

National Service

 

Support strengthening AmeriCorps with the “goal that every American who wants to participate in full-time national service will have the opportunity to do so.”

 

AmeriCorps according to its website:

 

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.

 

AmeriCorps is a good idea. You can hearken back to President Kennedy’s words:

 

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

Service for Country is difficult to criticize. However, a CBS report (of all places) shows the current scope of AmeriCorps has problems:

 

WASHINGTON — A CBS News Radio investigation of years of complaints about AmeriCorps programs has found multiple allegations of sexual harassment, abusive behavior and mismanagement since 2013. The allegations are detailed in complaints to the agency’s Inspector General, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

 

AmeriCorps, a network of national service programs, is the largest issuer of grants for service and volunteering.

 

It is overseen by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), which was established as a federal agency in 1993 – and has been dogged for years by claims that it is poorly managed.

 

Conservative critics say AmeriCorps is a waste of money and promotes liberal causes. The Government Accountability Office found last year that CNCS has fallen short in monitoring whether the organizations it grants money to meet federal standards and requirements. (AmeriCorps programs accused of sexual misconduct and breakdowns in oversight; By STEVE DORSEY; CBS News; 10/22/18 8:15 AM – Updated 10/22/18 7:15 PM EDT)

 

In essence the AmeriCorps problem is Big Government, mismanagement and propagating Left-Wing causes in its current state. Here’s a Michelle Malkin criticism from 2011:

 

… With bipartisan support, the program has morphed into an all-purpose progressive slush fund. Instead of reining in the national-service boondoggle, Washington has turned taxpayer-subsidized helping hands into a legion of Nanny State handout helpers. Goodbye, AmeriCorps. Hello, FoodStampCorps.

 

#ad#Yes, across the Internet, the feds are recruiting AmeriCorps VISTA (“Volunteers in Service to America”) workers to apply for jobs as publicists for the welfare state. Their mission: to sign up as many people to federal food-stamp rolls as possible. Because, you know, the record-breaking 12 million that have been added since Obama took office is apparently not good enough. (America the Dependent; By MICHELLE MALKIN; National Review; 4/15/11 4:00 AM)

 

Can you say, “Teaching government dependence”?

 

The Libertarian-oriented Hoover Institute observed in 1996, three years after AmeriCorps’ creation:

 

… Clinton has used the rhetoric of citizenship to justify his efforts to expand the welfare state. He has contradicted his emphasis on personal responsibility by working to preserve bureaucratic federal control of social programs. The revival of citizenship requires a transfer of power from government to families, voluntary associations, and communities. The president has instead sought to reinvigorate civic life by trying to relegitimize government.

 

 

AmeriCorps reveals the administration’s fundamental misreading of the components of healthy citizenship. The program provides government subsidies for voluntary activity at the federal, state, and local levels. By so doing, it conflates volunteering — which nearly 90 million Americans regularly do — with a federal-government jobs program run by a centralized bureaucracy. It is, in essence, a Great Society-style program trying to pass as a plan to reinvigorate citizenship and heal communities. But its very premise — using federal resources to promote voluntarism — contradicts the principle of self-government that lies at the heart of citizenship. AmeriCorps blurs the line between the problems and needs best addressed by individuals, voluntary association and localities and those best addressed by the federal government. Instead, it seems to suggest that social problems are the responsibility of the central government, and the federal bureaucracy must direct and improve local solutions. (Clinton’s AmeriCorps Values; By John Walters; January/February Policy ReviewHoover Institute; 3/1/1996)

 

Government dependence is one of the ways a Communist government manages the thoughts and actions of its citizens.

 

Read this article on Marxist/Leninist agenda to control citizens and look for similarities to the stealth actions of the Democratic Party. Here is a bit of an intro:

 

As the Bolshevik party took control of Russia after the October Revolution in 1917, they initiated large scale reforms in numerous sectors of society, while ultimately instituting changes in the political, economic, and cultural realms; that would all work together to clearly define their newly founded United Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) for the next seventy years. These reforms were predominantly focused on the wide-spread cultivation and propagation of Marxist/Leninist ideology throughout every portion of the USSR’s social spectrum. One of the most important initiatives taken was the promulgation of a new philosophical idealism that strove to mold the masses, specifically the proletariat working class, to form a “New Man.” Though this philosophical concept, coupled with the aims and ideology of the Soviet regime, has been historically designated as “The New Soviet Man,” the two terms are referred to synonymously in this historical investigation. The New Soviet Man was a medium through which the new party leaders attempted to extirpate old societal norms, which were lingering from the former regime, and replace them with a holistically Communistic society ruled by a national consensus and devoid of any individualism that may cause dissention. The party utilized several different means and operated through multifarious mediums to achieve this unification of social consciousness; some of these methods of transformation like propaganda or education guided under Communist values were directly implemented in social sectors to achieve immediate results, and READ ENTIRETY (Re-creating Mankind: The Philosophy and Actualization of the “New Soviet Man”; By Jon Savage – James Duban, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief; The Eagle Feather – A Publication for Undergraduate Scholars (University of North Texas); 2011 Edition)

 

The Marxist/Leninist approach to rule was sow seeds of discontent then implement violent rebellion to overthrow a non-Communist regime.

 

The Eurocommunist approach was (or is) a quiet revolution by gaining dominance in societal institutions such as Media, Entertainment, Academia and Government Institutions (We can call this the Shadow/Deep State). You need to bone up on the information you can find. In America, Eurocommunism may not be appropriate, so here let’s call it the Gramsci/Alinsky approach. Here’s an excerpt from a 2008 article written on the cusp of the beginning of Obama’s Fundamental Transformation:

 

Gramsci, as you may (or may not) know was the Italian Marxist theorist who evolved what we in America knew as the “Popular Front” approach to Marxist revolution–burrowing within organizations rather than attacking capitalism head on–and evolving it into a fine art of infiltration and cultural destruction. The end result: to completely alter the political message to one defending capitalism, religion, the middle class, family, and Western cultural traditions–including government, academia, media, and jurisprudence–to a new message that dwelt upon the evils of tradition, the oppressiveness of the West, etc. Gramsci believed that by changing the cultural message–for current usage, substitute the word “narrative”–to one espousing socialism and class struggle, you could eviscerate Western culture from within.

 

 

The seditious role of the community organiser was developed by an extreme left intellectual called Saul Alinsky. He was a radical Chicago activist who, by the time he died in 1972, had had a profound influence on the highest levels of the Democratic party. Alinsky was a ‘transformational Marxist’ in the mould of Antonio Gramsci, who promoted the strategy of a ‘long march through the institutions’ by capturing the culture and turning it inside out as the most effective means of overturning western society. …

His creed was set out in his book ‘Rules for Radicals’ – a book he dedicated to Lucifer, whom he called the ‘first radical’. It was Alinsky for whom ‘change’ was his mantra. And by ‘change’, he meant a Marxist revolution achieved by slow, incremental, Machiavellian means which turned society inside out. This had to be done through systematic deception, winning the trust of the naively idealistic middle class by using the language of morality to conceal an agenda designed to destroy it. And the way to do this, he said, was through ‘people’s organisations’.

 

 

“March through the institutions.” That pretty well describes what’s been going on and I couldn’t agree more. READ ENTIRETY (Obama = Alinsky = Gramsci = Marx; Posted by Wonker; HazZzMat; 9/15/08 8:32 PM)

 

Due to an American divide politically, I’m not sure if one can point to a subversive path against the U.S. Constitution. My guess the is the current status of subversion is a combination of Marxist/Leninist (the Bill Ayers dream) and Gramsci/Alinsky.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:
