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

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!!!

Interview with the Polish Ambassador

 

By SHAMIM MAHMOOD

Sent 2/2/2019 11:43 PM

 

ISLAMABAD (Online) Mr. Piotr A. Opalinski, the Ambassador of Poland to Pakistan has said that Poland values its historical links with Pakistan and enjoys the multifaceted collaboration. Currently, the two countries are significantly developing their political, economic and defence cooperation. The current trade volume is reaching a half billion Euro and there are good prospects for the further growth of their bilateral trade. Peace and stability are the key for the development of the region. Poland supports the peace process in Afghanistan and acknowledges Pakistan’s efforts in facilitating the talks between the US and Taliban.

 

Talking to the ‘Online News Agency’ in an exclusive interview, the Polish Ambassador Mr. Piotr Opalinski said that the relations between Pakistan and Poland are ‘excellent and very cordial’. He pointed out both at the ongoing political dialogue as well as enhancement of economic cooperation, especially in the areas of energy and exploration of natural resources, in which Polish companies have been engaged in Pakistan since last 20 years. He said that Poland’s vast expertise and long tradition in coal mining, defence production, agriculture and food processing offered new opportunities for the mutually beneficial cooperation in these areas as well.

 

Ambassador said, that Poland supported the inclusion of Pakistan in the GSP Plus by the European Union (EU) to grant non-reciprocal preferential treatment to Pakistan’s exports. He emphasized that the geographical location of Poland in the exact centre of Europe made it very suitable to become a hub for Pakistani products designed for the European market. The bilateral trade volume in 2018 raised to about 500 million Euro. The trade balance is in favour of Pakistani exports, mainly textiles (90 percent), with a relatively smaller share of leather products, sportswear, foodstuff and surgical instruments.

 

Ambassador Opalinski also said, in the area of development cooperation Poland was directly working with Pakistani partners – local organisations capable of a very efficient implementation of the projects. Some of the best examples of educational projects supported i.e. by the Polish Embassy were the primary schools in Kaghan Valley and Bari Imam area of Islamabad. They are providing quality education, counselling and medical care for the children.

 

Answering a question about visa policy, the Ambassador said it was based on the common Schengen Visa Code, as Poland, being one of 26 Schengen Member States, issues the visas allowing for a border-free movement of travellers in the whole area in all categories of travels – businessmen, tourists, students etc. The available statistics indicate that the number of visitors from Pakistan to Poland is gradually increasing.

 

Talking about the regional and international situation, the Ambassador appreciated Pakistan’s role in the Afghan peace process and its efforts in facilitating the talks between the US leadership and Taliban. Poland wholeheartedly supports peaceful resolution of the protracted conflict in Afghanistan, to the benefit, stability and development of the whole region.

 

Recollecting his very good personal experiences of nearly ten years of diplomatic service in Pakistan (first tenure as Deputy Head of Mission and now as Ambassador) Mr. Piotr Opalinski said the Polish-Pakistani friendship, transcending through different times and geographical distance was deeply-rooted in history and time-tested. He referred to the memories of Polish refugees who were granted shelter in Karachi during the World War and to the Polish pilots, who made a great contribution to the development of the PAF and civil aviation at the nascent stage of Pakistan’s statehood. He said, all this, and more fascinating stories of Polish-Pakistani personal relations of friendship, would be described in an excellent book “Freedom Under the Pakistani Sky” by Polish author Mrs. Anna T. Pietraszek [Polish Wikipedia], which is going to be launched in Pakistan later this year. Ends/

 

Be Blessed,

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.

Criticizing Angela Merkel & EU


Yurki1000 doesn’t always leave comments appropriate to the post. Even so, those comments are either informative or amusing. A few days ago Yurki left a comment to “The Democratic Party Endangers America’s Cultural Heritage” post on my NCCR blog. Yurki’s comment had nothing to do with America’s cultural heritage, but was an amusing and correct criticism of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. To understand Yurki’s European heritage concerns, he is Finnish.

Let’s see if you agree.

Merkel Perestroika Deception

 

 

GETTING ANXIOUS

 

– In a speech at the Paris Peace Forum (on Nov. 11, 2018) that was held to observe the 100th anniversary of the end of WW I, German Chancellor Angela Merkel attacked “nationalism” and “destructive isolationism.”

 

She was clearly attacking Pres. Trump and his “America First” policies.

 

She said, “We know that most of the challenges and threats of today can no longer be solved by one nation alone (by the U.S.), but only if we act together (as a world government). That’s why we have to stand up for this kind of collaboration” (why we have to oppose Pres. Trump’s “America First” policies).

 

She added, “Close international cooperation (globalism) on the basis of shared values (one-world religion) that are enshrined in the UN charters (included in the UN documents): This is the only way to overcome the horrors of the past and pave a new future” (their New Universal Agenda).

 

Also, in Nov. 2018, it was reported that the UN Human Rights Committee has drafted a memo that calls for abortion to be made a human right and all laws that oppose abortion to be declared illegal all over the world (global laws that supersede national laws). –

Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

 

THE PAN-EUROPE

 

– Few people know that one of the main instigators of the process of European integration, was a man who also conceived the genocide of the peoples of Europe. He was a sinister individual whose existence is unknown to the masses of our people, but the political elites consider him as the founder of the European Union. His name is Richard von Coudenhove Kalergi (1894-1972). His father was an Austrian diplomat named Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi (with connections to the Byzantine family of the Kallergis), and his mother the Japanese Mitsu Aoyama.

 

Thanks to his close contacts with European aristocrats and politicians, and due to the network of relationships created by his nobleman-diplomat father, Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi was able to work unseen, away from the glare of publicity, and he managed to engage the co-operation of the most influential heads of state for his plan, making them supporters and collaborators for his “project of European integration”.

 

In 1922 he founded the “Pan-European” movement in Vienna, which aimed to create a New World Order, based on a federation of nations led by the United States. European integration would be just the first step in creating a world government. His earliest supporters included Czech politicians Tomáš Masaryk and Edvard Beneš, and the German Jewish banker Max Warburg, who invested the first 60,000 marks. The Austrian Chancellor Ignaz Seipel and the next president of Austria, Karl Renner, took early responsibility for leading the “Pan-European” movement and later, French politicians, such as Léon Blum, Aristide Briand, Alcide De Gasperi etc., offered their help.

 

With the rise of Fascism in Europe during the 1930s, the project of European integration was abandoned and the “Pan-European” movement was forced to dissolve. However, after the Second World War, and thanks to frantic and tireless activity and the support of Winston Churchill, the Jewish Masonic Lodge B’nai B’rith and major newspapers like the New York Times, Kalergi managed to gain acceptance for his plan by the United States Government and later the CIA became involved in driving the plan towards completion. –

THE UNITED STATES OF EUROPE

 

– It was always the aim of the European project, from its very inception in 1951 with the Treaty of Paris, signed on 18th April 1951 between Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France, Italy and West Germany to established the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) (which is traditionally regarded as the foundation of the EU because it led to political and economic integration to a certain degree in western Europe as well as providing the basis for the modern EU) and the March 25th 1957 signing of the Treaty of Rome to establish a fully integrated federal superstate called the United States of Europe in which the concept of individual national sovereignty for each member state is complexly destroyed and Europe becomes a single , centralised political entity ruled from Brussels. Ted Heath knew this full well when he conned the UK public into voting for entry into the then European Economic Community, supposedly just a free trading bloc and nothing else. He had been briefed by the Civil Service that membership would entail the eventual complete loss of the UK’s sovereignty and our eventual absorption into a European superstate. We were sold the European project on a tissue of lies (note well please, Anna Soubry.)

 

This deception continued in subsequent decades with politicians of all parties and political shades signing the UK up to various stages of integration into the EU. –

[Blog Editor excerpts of Romans 10 Names of God Bible (NOG):

 

If You Believe You Will Be Saved

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God on behalf of the Jewish people is that they would be saved. I can assure you that they are deeply devoted to God, but they are misguided. They don’t understand how to receive God’s approval. So they try to set up their own way to get it, and they have not accepted God’s way for receiving his approval. Christ is the fulfillment of Moses’ Teachings so that everyone who has faith may receive God’s approval.

 

 

However, what else does it say? “This message is near you. It’s in your mouth and in your heart.” This is the message of faith that we spread. If you declare that Yeshua is Lord, and believe that God brought him back to life, you will be saved. 10 By believing you receive God’s approval, and by declaring your faith you are saved. 11 Scripture says, “Whoever believes in him will not be ashamed.”

 

12 There is no difference between Jews and Greeks. They all have the same Lord, who gives his riches to everyone who calls on him. 13 So then, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

 

 

16 But not everyone has believed the Good News.

 

Isaiah asks, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message that is heard is what Christ spoke.

 

 

20 Isaiah said very boldly, “I was found by those who weren’t looking for me. I was revealed to those who weren’t asking for me.” 21 Then Isaiah said about Israel, “All day long I have stretched out my hands to disobedient and rebellious people.”]

Who are the Black Hebrew Israelites and what was their part in the Covington controversy?


By now you’ve probably heard the smear campaign against the students of the Covington Catholic High School at the Lincoln Memorial was Leftist propaganda aimed at the Catholic stand for unborn babies having life.

 

BUT I’m guessing you don’t know much about the real hate-racist group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites. Below is a Glenn Beck explanation.

On Wednesday’s episode of “Glenn TV,” Glenn Beck took an in-depth look into the history, evolution, and ideology of the Black Hebrew Israelites, the group of men who verbally abused both the Native American activists and the Covington Catholic high school students in Washington last Friday.

 

“Before the Covington kids even showed up, there was a confrontation between the Native Americans and the Black Israelites,” Glenn explained. “The atmosphere between the two was hostile, to say the least. It looked like a fight could break out any second. When the Covington kids did show up, this was the scene they suddenly found them selves in the middle of … and then all of that rage, all of a sudden, was directed to [the Covington kids.]”

 

“The Black Israelites … they redirect[ed] the hate onto this group of kids, all because they were white and they were wearing the red hat. That’s it,” he asserted. “So where is the outrage over what the Black Israelites were saying? Where’s the outrage over a group of adult men directing hate, racism, and anger on a group of children, and inciting the Native Americans? Will no one assign any kind of culpability at all to these men? How is it that the group actually responsible for nearly all of this, barely gets even a mention in the story?”

 

Who are the Black Hebrew Israelites?

 

  • In 1886, Chattanooga, Tennessee, a former railroad worker named Frank Cherry established the Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of Truth for All Nations. (Yes, that was the full church name.) He mixed together elements of Judaism and Christianity, and believed that African Americans were descendants of the original tribes of Israel. He preached that these Israelite ancestors were chased out of Babylon into central and western Africa where they were eventually sold into slavery by the Romans. He believed that Adam, Eve, and Jesus were black. Cherry also preached that whites are inherently evil and hated by God.

 

  • Throughout the 1900s, offshoots of Cherry’s church developed into three main tracks. The “Black Jews,” who adopt Jewish rituals but also believe in Jesus as the Messiah. The “Black Hebrews,” who strictly practice traditional Judaism. And the “Black Israelites,” who are nationalistic and furthest from traditional Judaism and Christianity. The group that harassed the Covington students in D.C. fall into this third category.

 

  • The D.C. group calls itself “House of Israel.” It evolved from the black nationalist movement of the 1960s and 70s, which branded Christianity as a foreign religion imposed by white slave masters onto blacks. This group is on the extreme fringe of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, but see themselves as radical reformers of Hebrew Israelites across the spectrum who have gone astray. Even the notorious Southern Poverty Law Center characterizes this group as a “black supremacist” group, placing it on the same level as white supremacy groups.

 

  • The current “Chief High Priest” of this wing of the Black Hebrew Israelites has prophesied that a vengeful black Jesus will soon return to earth to kill or enslave all white people. Small groups of Black Hebrew Israelite street preachers called “camps” station themselves at busy intersections in cities like Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and Washington, DC. They rail against “white devils,” which they believe are descended from a race of beasts spawned by Esau. Esau is the twin brother of Jacob (later called Israel) in the Old Testament. They also rail against promiscuous women, native Africans (for selling black Israelites into slavery), Asians, and call for the death of Jews and homosexuals.

The Passing of a Great Man

I Was His Friend

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/12/2019 8:44 PM

 

Pete Doughtie – he was my editor, but he was my friend first and foremost, and I have never regretted knowing him or having him in my life, not for one second. He was without a doubt one of the finest men I have ever known, and this community, Tennessee and America are going to be lesser places without such a fine, wonderful and dear man, who entered a room bigger than life and always filled it with a smile, wit, humor and love for all he met. And I don’t think Pete ever met a stranger in his life.

 

Pete had the faith of Abraham and trusted his life and the lives of his sons and grandchildren to God. He was a rare combination of someone who had a love of life and a firm understanding of life’s most important matters, like the simplicity of living a life with those you love, although his life was far from simple, offering up complexities and many struggles. His main concerns, over any material possessions, were always family, God and America first.

 

Who would have ever thought that a little boy from Virginia would grow up, serve in the U.S. Army and in Korea, and go on to make such a huge impact in the state of Tennessee and America, through The Rutherford Reader, a newspaper he and his dear and loving wife, Kaye Sadler Doughtie, established nearly two decades ago right here in Murfreesboro, TN. He gave a voice to millions of voiceless Americans, who were being silenced daily by the Progressives in power and the mainstream media that has moved steadily farther and farther left.

 

We can’t speak of Pete’s life without acknowledging the many battles he fought on behalf of the people of Rutherford County, Tennessee and America, and the fact that he was deeply involved in the politics of the country. Whether it was issuing numerous warnings about the Islamization of America and Sharia law and calling for the deportation of the Muslim Brotherhood; his fight with the county over recognizing his paper for public notices use; his fight against censorship — in defense of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press and his regular defense of the U.S. Constitution and Christianity, his strong conservative Christian worldview made Pete a force that could not be ignored across the state of Tennessee. And it was amazing to see all the shakers and movers, from Steve Gil and Lou Ann Zelenik, congressional candidates, to State legislators, such Joe Carr, Bill Ketron, Rick Womick, and many others over the years, come to him for his blessing, as the editor and owner of one of the best conservative newspapers in the country, with over two million views a year. He was even invited to a private meeting with Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom in the Parliament of the Netherlands in May of 2014.

 

He loved all and had a wealth of friends everywhere he went, and although he made an abundance of enemies by way of his conservative stance in the many political arena’s, he never really hated his enemies. He strongly disliked what many of his enemies did, but he also hoped to awaken them and one day bring them to the love and joy that came through knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. So wrong were those who too often accused him of hating his opponents and those who would destroy America.

 

Pete was a speaker of TRUTH, a newsman since 1965, and it was his well thought well delivered truth that warmed the hearts of so many good and decent people. As a journalist — which he sometimes ironically denied being — he stood in great company and often beat Andrew McCarthy and Frank Gaffney to the heart of the matter on issues, especially concerning national security. Pete often asked, “Who will stand up?” Well … he did, and often, with hard-hitting, factual articles, that placed him on the front lines of many battles to preserve the freedoms you and I hold so dear — his words shining like new silver dollars in the sunlight.

 

In 2011, Pete wrote: “I’m sick and tired of not being counted when I’m offended. So many of Us are offended every day, but we do not speak up; we just smile and take it, yet if you are something other than ‘white American’, you are allowed to demand things be YOUR way. And the sad thing is, you get what you demand. Well, it’s time WE demand a few things.”

 

In an interview with Jerry Gordon, publisher of the New English Review, Pete related how the September 11th terrorist attacks prompted him to his battle against the spread of Islam in America. Pete remarked: “After 9/11, I knew we could no longer ignore the fact that Islamic terrorists were carrying out their plans with a vengeance for the destruction of the West. We reflect a Christian perspective through the paper. When I got into Sharia law, I knew we were in trouble.”

 

Even Christian men have their limits, and it was impossible not to laugh ’til your sides ached, on the day that after an especially aggressive provocation, Pete justifiably told Eric Allen Bell, a freelance reporter and Muslim apologist at the time, to step away from him and Lou Ann Zelenik, adding: “I’m going to stuff that camera right up your ass”. Pete certainly did not broker any nonsense on his watch.

 

And I can’t count the times I have heard Pete observe, rightly so: “We have been a strong Christian country, and if we don’t get back to it, the whole face of this nation is going to change.”

 

After nearly two decades of friendship, I came to know Pete as a man for all seasons. Just as in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, he knew there was a time for all things under the sun and under Heaven:

 

“A time to be born, and a time to die … a time to kill, and a time to heal … a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance … a time to love …”

 

Pete’s life was really a love story. Of all the people he touched, his most proud achievement in life was marrying Kaye Sadler, who he had known from their kindergarten days ’til his final breath. So poignant is the telling of their first “date” and a walk to the local theater for a movie, in the 4th grade. Kaye supported him in all his glory during his heyday — they supported each other, as they raised their sons and watched their family grow with many grandchildren. Kaye lovingly supported him physically and spiritually during their last days together.

 

I am sure that most of you have thought about Pete a great deal, much as I have, and with warmth in your hearts and in your recollections. Someday, some year, there will be old men and women whose pride it will be to say: “I knew Pete Doughtie:” Some will be able to say: “I saw him and I heard him — the unforgettable voice and his fine and memorable words.” And some will be able to say: “I knew him and talked with him, and I was his friend.”

 

How his eyes shone and sparkled, whenever he spoke of his wife and his sons and grandchildren.

 

This I can, with a mixture of pride and humility, say for myself. The memory of this moves me deeply now that he is crossing the River Jordan, but is remembered by me as he goes to his burial amid the sorrow, and pride, and thanks, of all of you who stand and feel for yourselves and so many thousands who mourn the passing of this wonderful man.

 

Pete Doughtie stood tall among his peers, a lion and a leader of men, a man of intelligence and chuckling humor and penetrating understanding, who expressed the simple and enduring feelings of ordinary men and women. As a great American patriot, he was able to speak for the American people, and as a Statesman of excellent character and morals — although he never served in public office — he was able to warm hearts and inspire courage across Tennessee; he was such a fine human being that he lit the lamps of hope at many firesides and relieved many of our countrymen from despair. I thank God for him and I celebrate his life with all the joy that he brought to so many, who truly knew him.

 

And never forget this. Pete’s wife is with us here in Murfreesboro, a great and gracious lady in her own right. Could I send her your love, and mine? She has suffered an irreparable loss. But she has proud and enduring memories. Happy memories, I venture to say. We share her sorrow, but I know she would love to hear our wonderful memories of this fine man, who she loved for all her life.

 

Pete was a fountain of light and hope, and as he makes his journey to Heaven, I’m sure St. Peter has the gates wide-open in anticipation. It has been many a decade since one man in Tennessee accepted so many burdens and left behind so many precious and splendid memories.

 

Pete was a voice of truth and reason and he spoke with courage, defiance, and hope and a rugged confidence for himself, for Tennessee and for all America. His was a life well lived.

 

Good-bye Dear Friend. ‘Til we meet on the other side, You will be sorely missed.
