Pence Card -OR- GOP No Longer Relevant


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© December 27, 2020

On January 6, 2021Vice President Mike Pence apparently can unilaterally save the Republic by invalidating criminally acquired Electoral votes or do nothing insuring the destruction of the Republican Party. Unless President Trump has an alternative plan to overrule a criminal election coup, Pence inaction on 1/6 solidified a Biden/Harris path to a 1/20 Dem-Marxist Inauguration. It is my opinion – my hope – such a 1/20 travesty will lead to an armed rebellion making the Antifa/BLM Marxist paramilitary look like an amateur hour.

If the Republic miraculously survives a Biden/Harris Inauguration, a new Patriot-friendly political will emerge to replace Deep State infected Republicans. Just as the national landscape of the Whig Party disintegrated over the issue of slavery, the Republican Party will disappear because American Patriots want nothing to do with a corrupt government ran by criminals and do-nothing Republicans.

So, Pence, do we prolong a Republican Party under a Trump second term or do Patriots start looking for name options for a new relevant Political Party?

It’s for Mike Pence to Judge whether a Presidential Election Was Held at All

 

By Ted Noel

December 26, 2020

American Thinker

On January 6, a joint session of Congress will open with Vice President Pence presiding as president of the Senate.  His power will be plenary and unappealable.  You heard that right.  As president of the Senate, every objection comes directly to him, and he can rule any objection “out of order” or “denied.”  His task will be to fulfill his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and to ensure that the laws be faithfully executed.  This is a high standard of performance, and V.P. Pence will have two choices.  He can roll over on “certified” electors, or he can uphold the law.

Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution gives state legislatures “plenary authority” as enunciated in Bush v. Gore.  This is key, since the counting of votes is discussed in Article II, the 12th Amendment, and 3 USC 15.  To this we must add the history of counting and objections recounted by Alexander Macris (here and here).  Put bluntly, it’s as clear as mud.  Add to that the fact that the contested states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin have sent dueling slates of electors to D.C.  This means that the V.P. has to decide how he will handle the situation when two sealed envelopes are handed to him from any of those states.

Macris points out that in 1800, even with constitutional deficiencies in Georgia, Thomas Jefferson blithely counted defective electoral votes from Georgia, effectively voting himself into the presidency.  This demonstrates that the president of the Senate is the final authority on any motions or objections during the vote-counting.  There is no appeal.  That doesn’t mean there won’t be any outrage.  Whatever Pence does, people will be angry.  But what does the law demand?

Seven contested states clearly violated their own laws.  Rather than list the facts, which have been detailed in multiple articles, we must consider the following:

An election is a process of counting votes for candidates. Only valid, lawful votes may be counted.  A valid lawful vote is:

  • Cast by an eligible, properly registered elector as prescribed by laws enacted by the state Legislature.
  • Cast in a timely manner, as prescribed by laws enacted by the state Legislature.
  • Cast in a proper form as prescribed by laws enacted by the state Legislature.

Any process that does not follow these rules is not an election.  Anything that proceeds from it cannot be regarded as having any lawful import.

Most commentators suggest that a process of collecting pieces of paper with marks on them is an election regardless of errors, omissions, and even deliberate malfeasance.  This is a mistake.  Imagine a golf tournament where every bad shot by one player gets a do-over, but the competing player has to follow USGA rules in detail.  One player gets to drop freely out of hazards, but the other has to tackle every embedded ball as it lies.  The result is a travesty.

The same thing applies to elections.  If there are a handful of improper votes, we can suggest that there was in fact an election, perhaps tainted, but the election wasn’t materially harmed.  But when the people charged with managing the election decide to ignore the law, whatever process they supervise is not the process defined by the law.  Therefore, it is not an election.

This leaves V.P. Pence with a dilemma.  He is a gentleman who regards our governmental traditions with a degree of reverence, so he will be reluctant to take any bold action.  But as an honorable man, faced with massive illegality, he must act to protect the law.  Consider how things might go down as the two closed envelopes from Georgia are handed to the V.P.  Rather than opening them, he says:

In my hand are envelopes purporting to contain electoral votes from Georgia.  They are competing for consideration, so it is essential that I consider the law that governs this.  That law, according to the Legislature of Georgia and Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution is the Georgia statute that includes procedures for signature-matching on absentee ballots, a requirement that all absentee ballots be first requested by a legitimate voter, and that election monitors be meaningfully present at all times while votes were counted.

The Georgia secretary of state, who is not empowered by the U.S. Constitution to make changes to election law, entered into a Consent Decree that gutted these protections enacted by the Georgia Legislature.  The processes that he prescribed and were ultimately followed were manifestly contrary to that law.  Further, the State of Georgia, in unprecedented concert with other states, suspended counting of ballots in the middle of the night, covering its conspiracy with a false claim of a “water main break.”  We now know from surveillance video that many thousands of “ballots” were counted unlawfully in the absence of legally required observers.

Finally, the State of Georgia, under the authority of secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, a non-legislative actor, used fatally flawed Dominion voting machines that have been demonstrated to be unreliable.  In testing, the error rate of Dominion machines has exceeded 60%, far in excess of legal limits.  They are designed to facilitate fraud without creating the legally required paper trail.  This alone is far more than enough to swing an election.

Since the state of Georgia has failed to follow the election law established by its legislature under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, it has not conducted a presidential election.  Therefore, no “presidential electors” were appointed in Georgia.  Further, “electors” “certified” by non-legislative actors pursuant to this process are in fact not “presidential electors.”  The competing slate of “electors” is similarly deficient, having not been elected through a presidential election.

Therefore, the chair rules that Georgia has not transmitted the votes of any presidential electors to this body.  Georgia presents zero votes for Donald Trump and zero votes for Joseph Biden.

The central point is that the VP, as the presiding officer and final authority, has the unquestionable authority to declare that the states in question have not conducted presidential elections.  There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth, but no one has the authority to override his decision.

The statement says nothing about who might or might not have “won” the contested states.  Rather, by not following their own laws, as enacted by their own legislatures, they have violated Article II, Section 1.  Thus, they have not conducted an election, and their results are void.

If the votes of all seven contested states are registered as zero, President Trump will have 232 votes, and Joe Biden will have 222.  The 12th Amendment says, “[T]he votes shall then be counted[.] …  The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President[.]”

In plain language, Donald Trump will be re-elected since he has a majority of the actual electoral votes.  There will be no need to involve the House of Representatives to resolve a contingent election.

Richard Nixon chose not to contest the 1960 election because he felt that winning that way would lead to an ungovernable country.  If V.P. Pence does this, that same argument might be made.  But is the country governable even now?  Blue states such as California, Oregon, Washington, New York, New Jersey, and Michigan are already operating in an openly lawless manner with their “emergency” “COVID-related” restrictions.  Their denial of the civil rights of law-abiding citizens is horrific.  Their refusal to do basic policing and law enforcement is a recipe for open war.  How much worse would things be if the V.P. lived up to his oath and upheld the law?

Patriotism Defeats Election Crimes


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Here are some Patriotic videos (I’m including the Ex22 Report who is a fan of Q who is full of positive info that NEVER takes place … at least so far) with best regards to Bitchute and a load of ill-regard to censorship minded Youtube. Patriotism means awareness means Dem-Marxists are in the process of an election coup utilizing COVID-fearmongering to make America a One-Party Marxist State intent on controlling YOUR thinking and actions. Following the videos is a cross post of a National File article on how Vice President Pence as the President of the Senate Constitutionally can nullify disputed (i.e., criminally fraudulent) elections in five or is it six States.

The first video is new music from ‘70s rockers protesting COVID lockdowns, but if you listen to the words; one could apply it the Dem-Marxist election coup.

Van Morrison (75) recently shared three anti-lockdown protest songs, in which he accused the government of being “fascist bullies”. ‘No More Lockdown’, ‘Born to Be Free’ and ‘As I Walked Out’ were written in opposition to the government’s coronavirus restrictions.

Now, he and Clapton (75) have shared ‘Stand and Deliver’ that continues Morrison’s protest against the lockdowns.

All proceeds from the song will go to Morrison’s Lockdown Financial Hardship Fund, which helps musicians facing financial insecurity as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

Clapton said: ““We must stand up and be counted because we need to find a way out of this mess. The alternative is not worth thinking about. Live music might never recover.”

EXCLUSIVE: White House Memo Details How ‘Pence Card’ Can Save Trump’s Presidency On Dec 23

A White House memo that details how Vice President Mike Pence is legally required to reject Electoral College votes from contested states.

 

By TOM PAPPERT

December 22, 2020

National File

Sources in the Trump administration confirmed to National File that President Donald Trump’s most vocal advocates within the White House have determined that both U.S. Code and the Constitution contain language that requires Vice President Mike Pence to reject unlawful Electoral College certificates, but Pence must act by no later than Wednesday, December 23.

The drafters of this White House memo believe that the federal check to the states’ elections resides with Vice President Mike Pence in his role as President of the Senate. Additionally, Pence has the sole power determine whether to reject impermissible states of electors. However, Pence is legally required to do this on the fourth Wednesday in December, which this year falls on December 23.

National File’s sources in the White House indicated that the memo was requested by those in the President’s circle who are most keen to see the 2020 election, and the ensuing fallout, administered in as transparent of a manner as possible. They also indicate that the push to find a path to verify the 2020 election’s integrity is not coming solely from the White House, but also comes from across numerous agencies in the administration.

The emergence of the memo could mark a decided shift in roles for Pence, our sources explain. Since the days immediately following the election, Pence has remained relatively silent compared to President Trump and his legal team.

The revelation that Pence alone can reject allegedly fraudulent Electoral College certificates shifts the spotlight from President Trump and Congressional leaders significantly by putting President Trump’s electoral destiny squarely on Pence’s shoulders.

This memo will likely interfere with Pence’s travel plans, as the vice president recently announced his intention to travel to Israel for two weeks after January 6, when he will preside over a joint session of Congress, according to the Times of Israel.

What’s Inside The Memo

Pence can deny Electoral College certificates from states with widespread election fraud.

FROM THE MEMO:

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution requires that “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors.”  Therefore, the papers (or “slates”) the states attempted to submit to the President of the Senate and Archivist of the United States are not legal, permissible certificates of votes and lists by Electors as recited in Title 3, U.S.C., sections 9 and 11.  Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin violated the U.S. Constitution’s Art. 2, S.1, Cl.2 and 14th Amendment, Section 1, Equal Protection Clause in administering their elections, therefore rendering their slates impermissible.

On Dec. 14, the States consummated a fraudulent and Constitutionally deficient certification of their electors as required by 3 USC 7.  State and federal authorities have discovered Overwhelming evidence of election fraud and irregularities since Nov. 4, likely  rising to the level of criminal election fraud and public corruption. Civil courts dismissed these claims procedurally, rather than on substance.

Pence must then notify the Secretary of State in each contested state that they have until January 6 to send a legal Electoral College certificate.

FROM THE MEMO:

The President of the Senate, as the Vice President, statutorily sits on the National Security Council and is privy to information no other individual in the Presidential electoral process has — not the States, not the SCOTUS, not U.S. Congress. This specifically includes any classified evidence and assessments which emanate from EO 13848 regarding foreign interference with US elections. Therefore, the President of the Senate is uniquely qualified to issue judgement on impermissible electors.

This is not an option for Pence. If he intends to follow the law from December 23 until January 6, he must instruct these states to remedy their Electoral College certificates.

FROM THE MEMO:

JUDGMENT:  All of these factors above inform and contribute to the Vice President’s analysis in deciding that he, as the representative of the Federal Seat of Government did not “receive” a constitutionally permissible slate of electors.  For that reason, he is not only duty-bound to request that the States send certificates and lists as required by Title 3, U.S.C., sections 9 and 11 from Electors that were appointed in the manner that the State Legislatures directed as soon as possible, he is also the sole plenary power that has the authority to make this determination.

The drafters of the memo also tell National File that, assuming the six contested states – Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Nevada – do not remedy their Electoral College certificates by either selecting them in the Legislature or holding another election, President Trump will prevail in the Electoral College.

As there will no longer be 538 possible electoral votes, with several states having having disqualified themselves by refusing to comply, President Trump will have accrued 232 electors to Joe Biden’s 227.

‘Pence Card’ not Played, Amistad Lawsuit Goes into Effect Names Pence, Others say Date Not Important

 

By Kari Donovan

December 23, 2020

DJHJ MEDIA

President Trump retweeted a copy of a Memo, starting online conversations between people outlining authorities and powers that Vice President Mike Pence could have used by Midnight Wednesday night to stop the certification of electors in troubled states where there was suspected voter fraud, and it appears that Pence chose to ignore those powers, which, according to some posters result in him being named in a lawsuit by the Amistad Project.

That is one version of the story which many people are following. There is another version of the Constitutional duties Pence has that says Wednesday is not an important date in the process at all, and January 6th is the important date.

If the “Pence card” theory is true, this is how it unfolds:

The idea was that Pence had until Midnight Wednesday to “pull the Pence Card” which was described as Pence sending demand letters to contested states, whose voter tallies were suspect.

The Gateway Pundit reported on the matter and said,” Many experts believe that Vice President Mike Pence has the duty to throw out electoral college recommendations in the 2020 election that are based on fraud. 

This will then force these states to have their legislatures choose the set of delegates they believe will best represent the state’s election results.“

One reporter said, “President Trump has retweeted the #PenceCard memo, which details an argument set out by @Raiklin, showing how Vice President Pence has until midnight tonight to deny Electoral College votes from states with rampant voter fraud”

This is the Memo Trump tweeted Wednesday evening:

According to the Amistad lawsuit:

“The above-named Plaintiffs Wisconsin Voters Alliance, Pennsylvania Voters Alliance, Georgia Voters Alliance, Election Integrity Fund, Arizona Election Integrity Alliance, Lynie Stone, Baron Benham, Debi Haas, Brenda Savage, Matthew Dadich, Leah Hoopes, Ron Heuer, Richard W. Kucksdorf, Debbie Jacques, John Wood, Sonny Borrelli, Warren Peterson, Matthew Maddock Daire Rendon, David Steffen, Jeff L. Mursau, William T. Ligon and Brandon Beach, for their complaint, allege as follows:

Vice President Michael Richard Pence is a Defendant sued in his official capacity as President of the United States Senate. As such, Pence is identified as having legal obligations under the Constitution and federal law regarding opening and counting the ballots of Presidential electors for President and Vice President.

INTRODUCTION

  1. State Legislatures are Prohibited from Fulfilling Their Constitutional Responsibility.

This lawsuit seeks protection of voters’ rights in Presidential elections. Voters in Presidential elections have a constitutional right to have their respective state legislatures meet after the election and certify their votes and, based on the votes, certify the Presidential electors whose votes are counted in Congress to elect the President and Vice President.

In drafting Article II, the Framers of the Constitution reasoned state legislatures should select Presidential electors so as “to afford as little opportunity as possible to tumult and disorder” and to place “every practicable obstacle [to] cabal, intrigue, and corruption,” including “foreign” powers” that might try to insinuate themselves into our elections.

Article II limited Congress’s role in selecting the President and provided no constitutional role for Governors. Yet, at present state legislatures should select Presidential electors so as “to afford as little opportunity as possible to tumult and disorder” and to place “every practicable obstacle [to] cabal, intrigue, and corruption,” including “foreign powers” that might try to insinuate themselves into our elections.

STANDING

As voters, the Plaintiffs have legal standing to bring these constitutional claims to ensure that Presidential elections are constitutionally conducted by Defendants.27

  1. The Plaintiffs claim that Article II of the U.S. Constitution provides a voter a constitutional right to the voter’s Presidential vote being certified as part of the state legislature’s post-election certification of Presidential electors. Absence such certification, the Presidential electors’ votes from that state cannot be counted by the federal Defendants toward the election of President and Vice President. Because the Plaintiffs’ votes are not counted as part of the constitutionally-required state legislative post-election certification of Presidential electors, the Defendants are causing the Plaintiffs to be disenfranchised. See Baten v. McMaster, 967 F.3d 345, 352–53 (4th Cir. 2020) (voters who vote in Presidential elections have standing on claims of government causing disenfranchisement).
  1. When Defendants violate the Constitution as it relates to Presidential elections in the Defendant, all voters in Presidential elections suffer an injury-in-fact caused by the Defendants.

Voters in a Presidential election, in this instance, have an injury-in-fact different than the public because when they voted and they had an interest that the election in which they voted is constitutionally-conducted. The same is true of future elections. Finally, the Court can redress the Plaintiffs’ injuries by issuing a declaratory judgment and accompanying injunction to enjoin the Defendants’ unconstitutional conduct.

  1. As voters, each Plaintiff has a fundamental right to vote.28 Thus, each Plaintiff has a recognized protectable interest. As the U.S. Supreme Court has long recognized, a person’s right to […]

Suspiciously, the Lincoln project, a group of failed Republican consultants with ties to foreign interests, who hate Trump, took credit for starting the idea that Pence would betray Trump with the “PenceCard”, which then led to an article in Axios that allowed leftist media to attack Trump, and dehumanize him.

The Lincoln Project bragging:

THis Axios article is the result of the Lincoln Project braggart mythology:

At this point it is unclear what Pence’s thoughts are on the “Pence Card” play. His latest post was:

Texas Puts SCOTUS into Play


Will SCOTUS Defend Republic or Criminal Coup?

 

John R. Houk, Blog Editor

December 10, 2020

 

As of 3:12 PM 12/9/20; The Gateway Pundit reports SEVENTEEN States joined Texas in suing Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania over Election UNCONSTITUTIONAL issues directly to SCOTUS. (My opinion: Nevada and Arizona should be included as culprits.)

 

I am cross posting three articles beginning with the article by TGP. This will be followed by an Epoch Times article touching on President Trump’s perspective. Which will be followed by a Just The News article examining a Constitutional application of the Texas-Plus lawsuit.

 

Hopefully more States demand SCOTUS end this Dem-Marxist Election criminality AND a bunch of Patriots swamp the SCOTUS building in peaceful (UNLESS the Dem-Marxist paramilitary Antifa/BLM show up) protest.

Trump Says He Will Intervene in Texas’ SCOTUS Election Case

 

An American flag waves in front of the Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill in Washington on Nov. 2, 2020. (Patrick Semansky/AP Photo)

 

By TOM OZIMEK

December 9, 2020 Updated: December 9, 2020

The Epoch Times

 

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he and/or members of his legal team would join, as intervenors, the lawsuit brought by Texas’ Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton to the U.S. Supreme Court against four battleground states.

 

“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” Trump said in a tweet.

 

An intervention, in legal terms, is a procedure that lets a nonparty join ongoing litigation if the case affects the rights of that party. The court considering an application to intervene, in this case the U.S. Supreme Court, has the discretion to allow or deny such a request.

 

In the lawsuit, Texas is alleging that Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin introduced last-minute unconstitutional changes to election laws, treated voters unequally, and triggered significant voting irregularities by relaxing ballot-integrity measures. The lawsuit is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare that the four battleground states conducted the 2020 election in violation of the Constitution.

 

The suit, filed on Dec. 7 and docketed the next day, is also seeking to prohibit the count of the Electoral College votes cast by the four states. For the defendant states that have already appointed electors, it asks the court to direct the state legislatures to appoint new electors in line with the Constitution.

 

Trump’s remarks about joining the suit as an intervenor came after several states expressed their support for the lawsuit. Attorneys general for Arkansas, Alabama, Missouri, and Louisiana have issued statements in support of Paxton’s motion.

 

On Tuesday, the president wondered if lawmakers or judges have the courage to help him challenge election results in key battleground states.

 

“Let’s see whether or not somebody has the courage—whether it’s a legislator or legislatures, or whether it’s a justice of the Supreme Court or a number of justices of the Supreme Court. Let’s see if they have the courage to do what everybody in this country knows is right,” Trump told a press conference in Washington during a summit on COVID-19 vaccines.

 

In the complaint to the Supreme Court, Paxton argues that the four battleground states had acted in a way that violated their own election laws and thereby breached the Constitution through enacting and implementing new measures, rules, and procedures right before the Nov. 3 election.

 

In some instances, the defendant states enacted such measures through the use of so-called friendly lawsuits, in which the plaintiff and the defendant collude to procure a court order, the lawsuit alleges. In other instances, a variety of state election officials allegedly exceeded their authority to promulgate rules and procedures that should have been enacted by each state’s legislature, as required by the Constitution’s Elections and Electors clause.

 

“The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” Paxton said in a statement.

 

Attorneys general from the defendant states have disputed the allegations in the lawsuit.

 

Paxton argued that the actions he outlined in his complaint “constitute non-legislative changes to State election law by executive-branch State election officials, or by judicial officials” and, as such, votes cast by Electoral College electors pursuant to these actions should not be considered constitutionally valid.

 

Texas is also asking the Supreme Court (pdf) to grant a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order to block the four states from taking action to certify their election results or to prevent the state’s presidential electors from taking any official action. The presidential electors are scheduled to meet on Dec. 14.

 

The court has ordered the defendant states to respond to Texas’s motions by 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10.

Texas files lawsuit directly to Supreme Court challenging election results in four states

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton argues WI, MI, PA and GA made changes to election rules without legislative consent, violating the U.S. Constitution

 

By John Solomon and Carrie Sheffield

Updated: December 8, 2020 – 3:49pm

Just The News

 

In a novel legal strike, the state of Texas has asked the Supreme Court to invalidate the election results in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia, arguing officials in those four battleground states violated the Constitution by making changes to how ballots were cast and counted without legislative approval.

 

The lawsuit filed late Monday night by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton asked the justices to issue a temporary restraining order preventing the states “from taking action to certify presidential electors or to have such electors take any official action including without limitation participating in the electoral college.”

 

The suit argues that changes made by the state’s governors, secretaries of states and election supervisors were “inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution.”

 

“I’m worried about the credibility of elections, not just right now, but I’m worried about the credibility of elections going forward,” Paxton told Just the News on Tuesday afternoon in a phone interview. “I’m not making a fraud argument, I’m making an argument based on the Constitution. And what we know happened, which was that we know state law was changed by people other than the state legislature, which is the only constitutionally authorized changes that are allowed … My argument is that the law was violated, the constitution was violated. I’m not addressing whether there was 2 million fraudulent ballots cast in Pennsylvania. I don’t know, and there’s no way to know, the way the system got set up, the way the rules got changed.”

 

States are allowed in certain circumstances to appeal directly to the Supreme Court, bypassing lower federal courts, in disputes involving other states. Paxton argued the state of Texas was wrongly harmed by the unconstitutional acts of the other states.

 

“These non-legislative changes … facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution,” the suit stated. “By these unlawful acts, the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution.”

 

You can read the full lawsuit here:

 

Texas Lawsuit 12 – 8- 20.pdf

 

Paxton said the defendant states may have had good intentions in making changes to the elections to address COVID-19 but nonetheless violated the Constitution, requiring a dramatic remedy.

 

“Certain officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as the justification for ignoring state laws regarding absentee and mail-in voting,” the suit argued. “The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect they made the 2020
election less secure in the Defendant States.”

 

The lawsuit was backed by the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project, a conservative group that has taken the national lead in challenging election irregularities in 2020. “The lawless nature of the 2020 election is on full display in the suit filed by Texas,” Amistad director Phill Kline said. “There was a coordinated and unprecedented effort of private interests improperly joining with leftist government officials to illegally support the democrat ticket in this election. This involved the sharing of sensitive citizen information with the private sector and the flow of more than $500 million from the private sector to targeted government officials and local governments.”

 

Paxton told Just the News he did not rely on research from the Amistad Project in his lawsuit and as of Tuesday afternoon had not spoken with other states about the issue but anticipated he could when he arrives in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. Paxton’s scheduled to meet with President Trump on a pre-arranged meeting.

 

Paxton rejected interpretations of stare decisis arguments saying that some states have wrongly trying to redefine who has constitutional authority over running elections in order to sow chaos and delay a clear presidential election result.

 

“I know what the Constitution requires, and it’s always required that,” Paxton said. “It’s the Constitution, so if case law says that the Constitution shouldn’t be the Constitution, well, I think that case law’s wrong.”

 

However, Paxton said he is hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court — including with the newly-sworn Justice Amy Coney Barrett to possibly tip the balance — will ultimately restore Constitutional order under a strict textualist reading that prohibits what Paxton said was last-minute judicial usurpation of the prerogatives of state legislatures to make election rules.

 

“I’m always for reading based on what the Framers meant, otherwise we don’t really have a Constitution if it’s just nine judges up there and they can make up whatever they want,” Paxton said. “We don’t really have a Constitution, we just have a ruling oligarchy of nine judges. And I’m in favor of judges who aren’t making the law for us and telling us what to do. I’m in favor of judges who are put there, they look at the law as it was written, whether by a legislature by the Founders, and they follow it. That’s their job.”

Some Stood for Freedom


Courts ignoring Election Fraud crimes in the name of various hypocritical legalese such as Standing, it’s too late, eyewitness affidavits are insufficient evidence and such loads of crap have been criminally neutered. The Courts are eradicating the Founding Fathers’ vision of Representative government mingled with zero Checks and Balances by the three Branches of government have been criminally neutered by an unaccountable bureaucracy calling the shots inside those Branches. THEN there is the treasonous complicity of a ONE-Party media eliminating the concept of a Free Press brainwashing listeners with bad or twisted science. This is the imminent COVID despotism Americans will be forced to submit to UNLESS Sheepledom is tossed off by any means necessary. Justin Smith demonstrates a few Americans are willing to stand up AGAINST despotism not based on the intent of the U.S. Constitution

Some Stood for Freedom 

The Solution Requires Americans With Backbones and Strong Hearts

 

Mac’s Public House Supportive Protesters 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent December 5, 2020 9:54 PM

 

There comes a day where one stops laughing to keep from crying, long after one has exhausted all peaceful means to rectify a severe and egregious wrong committed against all Americans. A day arrives that bears witness to the bulk of the American population rising to say it will not tolerate the growing and ever emerging and advancing tyranny from the respective states involved, the majority of U.S. States, or the federal government; but, that day is not today, unfortunately, because only a few hundreds and sometimes thousands have gathered in any real protest against the mask mandates and the lockdowns that are once more being implemented nationwide, on the advice of unelected technocrats, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, as a weakness runs through the nation that, by and large, is crying through masked and muffled mewings, “give us lockdowns and keep us safe” rather than demanding after the fashion of Patrick Henry, “give me liberty or give me death“.

 

For at least nine months now, America has witnessed governors and mayors across the nation shut down virtually all small businesses, especially those deemed “nonessential”, forcing them to their demise, while the big corporate businesses are deemed “essential” and raking in billions of dollars, from customers and the federal government “stimulus” Bail Outs for Everybody. And at the same time, these smug elitists issue stay at home orders, we see them in public too often at their own favorite eatery, maskless and thoroughly enjoying the company of many at a single table. And yet, these governors appear on newscasts speaking only of supposed Covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths, while never once making mention of all the businesses forced into extinction and the newly unemployed as a result of their policies, as if such results are inconsequential and do not matter at all.

 

Incredibly, we see pockets of radicalism rear their heads in even my home state of Tennessee, typically considered a fairly conservative state. Several of our larger cities have decided to impose the same tyrannical measures one might expect to see in California, where Southern California has just been locked down. Nashville Mayor John Cooper arbitrarily ordered that no more than eight people could gather together in the city, even their home, as Thanksgiving Day approached, and in Shelby County (Memphis), health department “officials” declared that masks shall be worn at all times while eating, except between bites.

 

And now, we have to listen to the dancing clown, Dr. Anthony Fauci tell various newscasters, as recently as December 1st, that the country should be kept locked down until the fall or such time as 75 to 85 percent of the U.S. population has received the “new vaccine” rushed through to completion, to be held suspect at best, for many reasons I’ve previously noted in past articles.

 

Dr. Ramin Oskoui told Laura Ingraham, Fox News host, on December 4th, that it doesn’t make sense to require children to be vaccinated, when the CDC’s own research and statistics prove that 99.64 percent of all children under the age of 18, who become infected by “the Virus” survive it without any ill effects. Dr. Oskoui further explained that the same phenomena that occurred with the Dengue Virus Vaccine, which actually worsened the virus in children rather than saving them, could quite conceivably occur with the Covid 19 virus vaccine, since it was produced on such an accelerated timeline, and it has yet to meet the real test through this proposed mass inoculation.

 

The more one researches what has transpired, since September 2019 the more it becomes apparent America, and the rest of the world too, is not dealing with a first-class medical emergency, but rather a sinister plan to roll out a vaccine that carries a microchip implant for the purpose of tracking anybody who receives it. This is not so fantastic a claim, since it’s already been developed, by MIT, through massive donations by Bill and Melinda Gates, one month before the announcement of the Covid-19 outbreak.

 

[Blog Editor: In full disclosure I am not an anti-vaxxer. BUT I don’t care how effective a vaccine is, IF there is any kind tracking/tracing component in the vaccine I will NOT voluntarily receive an injection. Now if you are foolish enough to believe Left-Wing fact checkers that vaccine-tracking is a Conspiracy Theory falsehood, KEEP IN MIND these are the same lying traitors telling Americans Election Fraud did not happen – nothing to see here, don’t believe your eyes or eyewitnesses. So here is the data Leftist fact checkers don’t want you to believe:

 

 

 

 

 

Remember – Leftists lie, particularly when a Leftie calls truth a lie.]

 

In a sick, twisted, delusional, despicable tyrannical statement earlier this week, Eric Garcetti, LA’s despotic mayor, prohibited “all travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit” with very few exceptions made, in Paragraph V. Some exceptions include people working in the healthcare and news industry, while residents of LA have been ordered “to remain in their homes”, as the order even attempts to bar household gatherings and require non-essential businesses to either close or conduct business from home, if applicable.

 

It’s past time for all American patriots to reclaim our Constitutional rights.

 

Periodically, we see the lone bar or restaurant pushing back against some illegitimate and illegal executive order, as local supporters stand nearby with television cameras running. We’ve seen it in New Jersey where a gym owner stood up to the Governor and state and local police, and most recently we have seen pockets of resistance pop up again on Staten Island, New York and in Los Angeles, California. These should be taken as symbols for freedom and become the rule of the day rather than the exception.

 

The [JOS] owner of the Pineapple Bar and Grill on Van Nuys Boulevard took to social media to plead her case, as her restaurant’s outdoor dining area was closed down by LA’s powers-that-be at the same time a movie production company was setting up an outdoors dining area for employees, just feet across the way from her business. The movie people have since removed their tented site, and although the owner of PB & G has taken her fight to social media, she should have filed an injunction against the county and city to halt their actions, and she should have remained open in defiance of these illegal, unconstitutional executive orders.

 

The owner of Mac’s Public House, Keith McAlarney, did everything he could to comply with Governor Coumo’s and Mayor DeBlasio’s far-reaching and extremely tyrannical diktats and executive orders, until it became a matter of survival and his business staying open or closing its doors forever. McAlarney made the only choice he could possibly have made. He chose freedom and business as usual, in order to be able to feed his family and keep a roof over their head, and as a result, he was threatened with many thousands of dollars in fines and even jail time.

 

Mac’s Public House, Keith McAlarney Surrounded by Cops

 

It’s impossible to cogently and logically argue with McAlarney’s objections, as he asked: “Why is everybody allowed to cram themselves into a Target or a Best Buy or into the mall or any other large company, big corporation companies, and they’re running shoulder to shoulder with each other … but my establishment all of a sudden somehow seems to be the only place that somebody is able to contract corona?”

 

His lawyer has advised him that his choice to remain open and conduct regular business was in line with the law and that he would be standing with his client until the end, come what may.

 

As hundreds of protesters rallied around him and his business as he defied the illegal Covid orders, [JOS] they chanted “Open Up”, even as Danny Presti, co-owner, was led away in handcuffs like some sort of hardened criminal. Presti stated: “I have nothing to lose.” And later, both owners made note that only a block away, other businesses were being allowed to function without any restrictions, which was one of the main reasons they decided to take the path they chose, rather than watch everything they had worked so hard to build destroyed in a matter of weeks.

 

Mike Coughlin, owner of the Village Tavern and Grill in Carol Stream, Illinois, has found himself placed in the same predicament, after he followed every new arbitrary “rule” for new limited capacity seating by Governor J.B. Pritzker and staff. However, in early November, Pritzker once again arbitrarily and illegally changed the rules and moved the goal posts, demolished them really, by suspending indoor dining. Seeing no other recourse, Coughlin chose to defy the Governor and the State of Illinois, as he declared: “I’m not going to be the guy with the boarded-up building because I follow somebody else’s science.”

 

It’s a flawed science at best.

 

Well before the end of August 2020, the facts made it clear. Covid is dangerous for select segments of any population center, but it has an infinitesimal and low death rate among the young and healthy.

 

Arlene’s Grocery, an iconic spot on the Lower East Side of New York City that helped budding young artists and musicians get their start, is now in danger of closing its doors, and it made the following appeal over the Thanksgiving Day holiday:

 

“Hit hard like many, the Covid pandemic has devastated our industry. After 25 years of serving the Lower East Side and giving a platform for musicians and artists alike, Arlene’s Grocery is on life support. Without any aid, we will not be able to continue to serve our community and will be closing our doors on February 1st (2021). The owners and staff members are absolutely heartbroken. Arlene’s has become home to so many over the years and we are in desperate need of your help.”

 

Arlene’s Grocery Might Close on 2/1/21

 

YES. Arlene’s needs YOUR help, the help of everyday Americans, not “stimulus” after “stimulus” that creates more troubles for the nation on down the road. if all businesses had taken this same action sooner and prodded our people from their homes, the situation would not be so dire at the moment. Blind obedience to a faulty, misleading and deceptive presentation of “the science” has driven us to this appointment with destiny, but it’s not too late to make a course correction.

 

How can we even still be at this point given all we now know, regarding Covid’s relative non-lethal results for the biggest portion of the population? We know for certain that 99.64 percent of everybody under the age of 18 survives Covid without any ill effects, and yet, we still have many asinine ongoing measures keeping schools closed in most states.

 

According to the Associated Press in November, five of the six U.S. states with the lowest unemployment rates have the fewest Covid-19 restrictions.

 

The Covid 19 measures are nothing less than a massive, corrupt, criminal overreach of power. They have no real basis in “the science” that is so often breathlessly touted by the petty tyrants, elected and unelected, who would be king and care not one wit for the Bill of Rights.

 

And while Governors, such as Andrew Cuomo of New York, ignore Supreme Court rulings calling their actions “UNCONSTITUTIONAL”, the upper-crust of society, those “elites” who cannot be trouble by the “Great Unwashed” of the madding masses, go about unaffected by any lockdowns, since they can comfortably work from home, most of the working and middle class Americans must actually show up to work, or they don’t receive a dime, and they certainly cannot work and care for their families under such restrictive and arbitrary rules and insane, suicidal lockdowns.

 

The solution for all of this is really pretty simple, but it requires all Americans to exhibit some backbone and a strong heart and will to do more than simply survive, by holding one’s hands out to the government, in pitiful hopes of receiving some small stimulus check that is a temporary and poor fix considering all that is at stake and the consequences if we stay the current course, without pushing back on these illegitimate, illegal executive orders, in the name of taking back our liberty, freedom and our lives.

 

The petty despots and tyrants of America have brought us a new virus, as they pretend to battle Covid-19. They’ve infected the nation with the virus of tyranny for which there isn’t any cure other than a righteous stand for freedom and liberty by America’s fine, good and decent patriots, moving in unison along any path necessary to prevent a communist takeover of America and the destruction of our Republic. This tyranny virus cannot be defeated through moderation or denying its existence. Extreme measures are friends of all who love America and liberty, in this war to remain free.

 

Americans must not be overwhelmed by their sadness over the situation, and they must not allow the Marxists, globalists and statists of both parties across the nation enforce a “new normal” that is anything but normal. This is a time to shake one’s self hard, slap one’s face in the mirror, and get damned good and angry over the dead and dying businesses in our communities. This is the time to open everything up and make the authorities move to arrest us, if they really see that as their “Constitutional duty”, in spite of the fact there is nothing Constitutional in such actions. It’s time to return to a true normal by getting angry as all hell and engaging in civil disobedience, in order to make a righteous stand against a dark and growing tyranny in the halls of our governments and in our lands.

 

The United States Constitution guarantees that all Americans in all fifty states will live under representative self-government in a republic and not under fascistic despots, wearing Nikes and shirts with Antifa, BLM and Che Guevara logos and carrying syringes in their neo-fascist toolkits. It’s time for any and all resistance against any government entity and any government agent, elected and unelected, that have shown so little regard for the lives of all Americans, so negatively impacted by their unscientific demands over the course of this so-called “pandemic”, even up to and including picking up one’s rifle and placing the fear of God in them, sending a few homes to their maker, if they insist on suppressing our Inalienable God-Given Rights.

An Argument for Filling Ginsburg’s Seat Immediately


An ACT for America email shares a Frank Salvato Post (without crediting source) that is very effective in support of the Constitution showing it is President Trump’s duty to submit a nomination to SCOTUS to replace unborn baby-killing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg who is deceased.

An Argument for Filling Ginsburg’s Seat Immediately

 

By Frank Salvato

Sent 9/21/2020 6:19 AM

Sent from ACT for America (info@act4america.org)

 

In the aftermath of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tensions on both sides of the aisle are high. With a hotly contested General Election just weeks away, some in the pundit/activist spheres, conditioned by the acceptance of civil unrest in our urban areas, are calling for acts of violence should President Trump nominate his pick to fill the vacancy on the bench.

The problem with this, besides the obvious, is that Mr. Trump has no choice but to deliver his nomination to the Senate for confirmation unless he is to be irresponsible to the nation’s needs and the Constitution’s mandates.

In an array of tweets, several self-important personalities issued violent threats against the country should the President and the Senate actually do their constitutional duties:

  • “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f—–g thing down” and “Over our dead bodies. Literally,” tweeted Reza Aslan, an Iranian-born CNN host, born-again Islamist, and author.

 

  • “F–k no. Burn it all down,” tweeted Aaron Gouveia, author of Raising Boys To Be Good Men: A Parent’s Guide to Bringing Up Happy Sons in a World Filled with Toxic Masculinity and Father who defended his 5-year old son’s right to wear fingernail polish.

 

  • “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election,” tweeted Beau Willimon, a former aid[e] to John Dean’s failed Senate bid and screenwriter who pilfered the idea for House of Cards from the British version.

 

  • “Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS,” tweeted Emmett Macfarlane, a Canadian professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

 

If you are disturbed by the level of hatred, aggression, and complete disregard to the rule of law and the US Constitution then you haven’t been paying attention to what has been going on in the whole of America’s urban centers for the past six months.

But what both the foreign nationals and the US citizens noted above do not understand, for their constitutional illiteracy, is that there are two pressing reasons why Justice Ginsburg’s seat needs to be filled before the November election.

First and foremost, the country needs a full complement on the US Supreme Court should there be any contest to the election results this November the likes of Bush v. Gore in 2000. A deadlocked 4-to-4 decision regarding the election of a president would send a fireball of violence into the streets of our nation, not to mention dismantle continuity of government. With our nation as divided as it is, we would almost assuredly devolve into a Second US Civil War.

But more important is that the President and the US Senate are mandated by the US Constitution to execute the workings of government. The moment a vacancy is created it is mandated that the process of filling that vacancy begin. The bad precedent that politicians have set in elongating this process is just that: bad precedent.

Article II, Section 2 of the US Constitution states, in part:

 

“[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law…”

 

As you can see, nowhere in this Article, or anywhere else in the US Constitution, does it call for a period of mourning, an exception in an election year, or a hiatus due to an impending election. The US Constitution simple vests the authority and mandates its execution.

Just as when the vice president is immediately sworn in as president when a president is tragically taken from us, so too is it necessary to immediately begin the process of filling vacancies in every other constitutional branch of office and especially in the face of a critical national election. The execution of these constitutional duties is not a sign of disrespect for the recently passed, it’s a mandated exercise in continuity of government, and that is government’s obligation to its people.

Politicians would love to drag out the filling of Justice Ginsburg’s seat on the bench for political reasons; to suit their political agendas. Activists, Marxists revolutionaries, and ideologues would relish the elongation of the process in hopes that Mr. Trump loses his re-election bid so that Biden (or Harris) might nominate someone approved by the group-think, oligarchic elite of the Marxist-Progressive Left, the cabal that controls all things Democrat.

But politics is not government. Let me say that again. Politics is not government. We all have gotten so used to mistaking political acts for acts of government that we have become accepting of the falsehood that the political parties have any legitimacy in the execution of government. We have been duped into believing that politics is government, but politics is not — and never should have been — a component of government.

The shrieks of the political class who threaten retribution are the sounds of ideologues threatening the US Constitution. Politics and political operatives hold no sway over the mandates of the US Constitution. And while the Sen. Schumers and Speaker Pelosis of the Left talk about a period of mourning, that mourning must happen simultaneously with the execution of government, which means the seating of a ninth US Supreme Court justice prior to a national election.

President Washington warned us in his farewell address that politics would be the ruin of the Republic. So far, his warning has been both spot on and ignored. Where some would say the enemy is inside the gates, I put it to you that the enemy is, in fact, elected to office.

Treason: Undermining the Constitution and the President


I ran into Dr. Garrow’s post on Facebook while posting one of my own threads. The post is relatively brief yet inspiring. As the Editor of my blog I added embedded links which I believe makes the post a richer read. Thus in full disclosure the links reflect my thought and Dr. Garrow may or may not agree or appreciate my thinking.

 

What Dr. Garrow is implying in a nice way, the Marxist riots ravaging America and actually receiving verbal support from Dems and the Mainstream Media undermines the Founders’ vision of a Republic dedicated to Law abiding Americans rather than a government Marxist principles.

Treason: Undermining the Constitution and the President

 

By James Garrow

June 3, 2020 9:12 AM

Facebook Group – Paul E. Vallely – The General’s Group

 

 

Putting aside the kinds of differences in world view that have been obvious since the first Socialists took office in America, it would seem that the shoe banging on his desk and threat to “bury” America was as real as it could get. Since those days in the 60’s when the United Nations played host to the Russian leadership flexing muscles that put fear into the entire world’s hearts, a new and different subtlety has permeated the efforts to undo the Capitalist agenda and lay waste to actual history versus speechifying and flights of fantasy.

 

By replacing real history with an imagined path that led from the rise of the proletariat into the suborning of the dictates of the elites and the notion that the common man was best served by replacing the order of things with Communist/Socialist principles the group think mentality replaced the responsibility of the individual. America’s national psyche answered to a set of morals and mores that reflected the desires of a Supreme Being as outlined in the Ten Commandments. Love and forgiveness completed the evolution of the relationship between the created and the creator. Obedience to His Law and commands was empowered by the assistance of God’s Spirit and the renewing of a sinful nature with a clean beginning. Recognition of God as Supreme was clear from America’s beginnings and formed the foundations of the Declaration of Independence and the development of a Constitution [Blog Editor: See HERE, HERE & HERE] amid hearty debate and thoughtful growth over time.

 

We have reached a place in time where what is being tested is whether mob rule would or could replace the Law of the Land and the social contract entered into by the Founding Fathers and continued for over 300 years successfully. The expectation that orderliness can rise from chaos or that wrongs can be righted through violence and reprisal goes against common sense and the foundations of the Republic itself. Those who would overthrow these foundations to be replaced by a notion that has failed to secure freedom and security in every nation that bought its bitter answer to repression have no answer but authoritarian rule by a new elite that has never proven itself worthy of our fielty [Blog Editor: I suspect the author meant fealty for there is a difference. Fealty vs Fielty – I’ll let you decide]. To overthrow the peace that is brought about by the social contract that has been the envy of the world is to place our bets for the future on a flimsy ghost of an idea. Let’s not do that.

Americans! REMEMBER the Declaration and Constitution


John R. Houk

© May 25, 2020

 

The Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic thrust on America and the world by a totalitarian Chinese Communist government is a real fact even if Globalists, Dem-Marxists and the Leftist MSM propaganda machines spout a contrary lie.

 

That Chinese pandemic has had a chilling effect on the American way of life. For Americans willing to open their eyes a fortunate effect is the full display of how a Dem Party dominated U.S. government will literally rule with despotism ignoring the U.S. Constitution.

 

Then there is President Trump. A man who has trusted bureaucrats way too much from the very beginning of his first term in Office. Trump has been proven to me a man of good intentions for Americans yet duped by RINOs, GOP Globalists and government bureaucrats intent on Globalist agendas more than American Liberty and Patriotism.

 

I have no idea how Trump will pull a team of Americans to correct past badly placed trust. BUT I DO KNOW Trump is at least a stall stop gap if reelected to another 4 years as President. A Dem President will run America despotically just as Dem Governors have operated during this Chinese perpetrated Pandemic virus exploited toward American ruination and potential submission to a ChiCom dominated New World Order.

 

I FOR ONE WILL NOT SUBMIT TO A ChiCom NWO in my AMERICA!

 

Justin Smith has two recent submissions to this Blog reflecting growing American frustration with the Federal and State government ignoring the U.S. Constitution and the spirit of the Declaration of Independence that freed Americans from past foreign despotism.

Conscience Asks ‘Is It Right’?

The Darkest Time In American History

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/22/2020 11:20 PM

 

And on some positions, Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But Conscience asks the question ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.”  ~ Martin Luther King, January 14th 1968, Santa Rita, CA

 

When will Americans stop supporting those very men and women in Congress, from both sides of the political aisle, and this administration that are America’s very Destroyers?

 

Charles Montesquieu, famous philosopher and theorist, noted in 1748 that for a despotism to survive and thrive, fear must be present. A despot must not allow his subjects to sense him loosening his grip on power, or they will pounce and take him down, so he must keep them in fear of his power and previously displayed tendency to use force, for his power over them to last.

 

Why is America currently allowing despotic governments their way, by and large? As I see many protesters in many states demanding the states reopen, I can only hope this rejuvenates the population to once again create a majority of liberty-loving, responsible, courageous “give me liberty or give me death” people.

 

It is past time for America’s patriots to spill the blood of her tyrant’s on the Tree of Liberty and to nullify the very governments that have nullified our rights.

 

Of late, I have had a great bit of time to consider many things about this nation, this exceptional country called “America”, that has given me so many fond memories from my childhood, such as trips the family made to Monticello and Mt Vernon, the homes of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. I could probably regale many with tales of the culture of rugged people who founded this America we love so well, but somewhere along the way, my appetite for storytelling has disappeared during the post-TARP journey most of us have made through this American Oblivion after 2008, as the mindless, soulless economic vampires mandate that no one is too big to fail and the Federal Reserve acts like the florist in the Little Shop of Horrors, cooperating with career liars and moneychangers.

 

America is being destroyed by men and women in Congress, on both sides of the aisle, and the Trump administration, in front of the reopen calls and a hard push for more stimulus and in the wake of the COVID event. Casting aside any pretense, the Republican Party, under the Trump Brand, has completely abandoned any once held conservative values and any semblance of advocating for fiscally responsible government. And Trump and his New Republican Party are now the new face of Democratic Socialism and a new “conservatism” that holds no price is too high to pay, just as long as Big Government grows bigger and Individual Liberty shrinks.

 

Fearing what a damaged economy will do to his presidency and his re-election chances, Trump has spent rivers of money, bleeding the U.S. Treasury and the American people for trillions of dollars that pushes an unsustainable national debt —  currently hitting $25 trillion and charging warp speed to $40 trillion in the near future — off onto the next generations, in an attempt to stave off the Greater Depression and save his chances for another term in the Oval Office.

 

Don’t believe me? What would one call the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, priced at $350 billion, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, sucking away $2.2 trillion and the CARES Act intervention for the SBA Paycheck Protection Program, at a cost of $500 billion, if not more Big Government Democratic Socialism, the sort that would make FDR grin ear to ear?

 

Adding insult to injury, immediately after signing the CARES Act into law, President Trump began advocating a ‘Very Big & Bold” $2 trillion infrastructure plan, and that can only lead any reasonably cogent thinking individual to also conclude President Trump full well intends to sign Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act, despite his and Senator Mitch McConnell’s protestations. The Republicans will make a show of tweaking and reshaping this 1800 page monstrosity, loaded with giveaways to special interest groups, while leaving it largely intact, and they will cave to the Democrats, once again, as sure as the sun sets in the west.

 

Far too many Americans are allowing individual liberty to be damaged and suffer harm, as they look at each issue through the prism of Trump’s personality, hating or loving him depending on their party affiliation. It’s a shame that they can’t see, that by and large, regardless of who presents the case, Republicans on one side and Democrats on the other, the legislation all seems to be prepared in the offices of Wall Street.

 

Well before the 2008 economic collapse, the U.S. economy was teetering in a precarious position, and our economy never fully or properly recovered from those days to the present, exacerbated by many economic bubbles and zero interest rates, and when interest rates were raised, liquidity was virtually nonexistent and repo markets became unstable. Still, the Federal Reserve ignored the declining economic conditions and the historic levels of national, corporate and consumer debt, as they continuously promulgated the fiction that the U.S. economy was “strong” and “in recovery” from December 2018 to the present, knowing they were lying and that the economy was on the brink of a breakdown.

 

And in the meantime, the federal government and the state governments both delivered terrible blows to individual liberty from the onset of this virus event, that was used by the Federal Reserve Bank, certain complicit Congressmen, corporate CEOs, lobbyists and Wall Street to provide cover for the economic crash they created. The fact that the central banks set this collapse in motion has largely been ignored by the mainstream media and the statists, globalists and communists of America who are anxiously and gleefully blaming the pandemic for everything that followed, during the shutdown, including the “selfish” American patriots who have stood firm for their individual liberty and defied the lockdowns.

 

Although President Trump is currently stating that “we’re not closing our country”, if it’s hit with a second wave of COVID-19, from the outset, Trump has stood on the side of those despots, who seem to misunderstand government’s role in society, such as Dr Anthony Fauci of the CDC, as he initially went along with many of the draconian guidelines that soon were enforced as “law”, across the states, only to later come out and champion people in various states defying shutdown “orders”. Even as Trump flip-flopped from saying America can beat the virus without a vaccine to announcing the U.S. military will be administering it, his Enablers cheer, as they largely demand the country open again.

 

On May 21st, Trump exuded confidence as he noted the following, regarding any resurgence of COVID:

 

We’re going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country. … Whether it is an ember or a flame, we’re going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”

 

It’s too bad that Trump didn’t advocate this same position from the start of the COVID-19 event that led to catastrophe for America, when even then a great number of Americans, real experts, were loudly exclaiming that never before in history had America ever completely shut down its economy as a measure to combat a virus.

 

Gates and his criminal cronies have engaged in intense agitation and propaganda of late, as they advocate a continuance of this disastrous shutdown until everyone has been vaccinated, and in mind-boggling fashion, Americans now see many Democrat Governors trying to keep the shutdown going within their states, regardless of the wishes and pleas of the people. And so too have we witnessed the despotic attitudes in the wild-eyed communist Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, whose arrogant statements go beyond the pale and sound as if a foreigner spoke them, the transsexual Secretary of Health in Pennsylvania and the Health Director of Los Angeles.

 

It appears that the current plan across the board, from the federal level on down to the local, regardless of what is opened, is to continue to mandate the anti-Freedom of Assembly “social distancing” and masks, as a bit of false protection against the minimal threat of COVID, in order to continue to force everyone to comply with illegitimate, unconstitutional government “orders” and stop any dissent. Also, the flawed tests will continue, and contact tracing of individuals will start, as tracking technology is implemented nationwide. And all of this culminates with the ultimate goal of forced mass vaccinations, despite Trump’s assurances to the contrary.

 

Lost jobs and thousands of destroyed small businesses are just collateral damage for those who would be kings, and it has all been achieved through phony science and its proponents who have corrupted their own data, doctoring the death count by calling any death a COVID death, if the deceased exhibited any of its associated symptoms. Hospitals too have helped perpetrate the fraud on the American people, for financial gain, since they receive $13,000 from Medicare for each COVID patient and $39,000 for each one placed on a ventilator.

 

Some obvious questions need answering: Why are thousands of businesses being forced to remain shutdown, with their owners threatened with fines and jail, while corporate giants like Walmart and Home Depot have been allowed to remain open the entire time? Why are abortions deemed “essential” but orthopedic surgery is not? Why are liquor sales “essential” but religious liberty is not?

 

Ironically, only moments after I started this piece, on Friday May 22nd, President Trump announced a long overdue order for Governors to allow houses of worship to reopen immediately as “essential”. He stated: “The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now — for this weekend. If they don’t, I will override the governors.”

 

This is something that should have gone without saying and should have been a given, from day one, just as it was with Walmart. Why was Trump so slow to arrive to this decision?

 

This tyranny that was rushed upon the people has nothing to do with medicine, our health, or actual science, and everything to do with forcing the ultimate inversion whereby the government is attempting to overreach and take unauthorized powers, as if it can now do anything it pleases and the American people must beg its permission to leave their homes, hold a job, assemble with their fellow Countrymen, worship in their churches, visit parks or beaches or patronize certain businesses. The American people are witnessing all pretense cast aside as an astounding number of elected officials across the land rush to enforce complete illegitimate totalitarianism.

 

The despots of the American states and within the bureaucracy of the federal government issued their diktats, and all those who advocated for their individual rights or actually exercised them by defying the decrees were denounced, shamed, censored and arrested in so many instances, that one finds it hard to believe we are still living in America. Anyone who disagreed or was seen as unwilling to sacrifice for the common good was denounced as “selfish”.

 

However, just to set things straight, it isn’t selfish to fight for one’s rights and to want to work and be productive. It isn’t selfish to be more concerned with one’s own welfare and the welfare of one’s family and friends than the welfare of strangers, the public or the government that supposedly represents us all. One’s desire to live free and with one’s right to liberty completely honored is not selfish. 

 

America is in the midst of the largest psychological operation in the history of mankind, and one cannot help but observe how fast so many have completely submitted to this overreach and abuse of power during this national lockdown. Even though a large number of Americans say they don’t trust politicians or the media, one could not tell from their initial obedience, and now, having witnessed tens of millions bow to their power, these politicians are emboldened, and no matter what transpires in the near future, the long-term cost to freedom and liberty has been  tragic in comparison to any loss of life to the virus.

 

All of this brings to mind a great quote by Joe Sobran, a constitutional scholar and journalist for the National Review: “By today’s standards King George III was a very mild tyrant indeed. He taxed his American colonists at a rate of only pennies per annum. His actual impact on their personal lives was trivial. he had arbitrary power over them in law and in principle but in fact it was seldom exercised. If you compare his rule with that of today’s U.S. Government you have to wonder why we celebrate our independence.”

 

Americans must awaken to the fact that all risk in life cannot possibly be eliminated, and it is delusional to try to accomplish such a feat; edicts in pursuit of such are tyrannical and to comply with them suicidal. And any betrayal of one’s own conscience and the surrender of individual rights to the collective for safety’s sake, always ends in misery, destruction, despair, terror and death, a lesson all will learn as our society moves through the darkest time in American history.

 

Americans will remain free, so long as they do not succumb to an immobilizing fear. It will require fighting for our rights, our freedom and our lives by way of word and deed, our passion and diligence to the cause of the same, in order to assure all these rights to ourselves and our families and countrymen. Our rights and the pursuit of life and liberty can only be assured and ensured through our refusal to conform, our disobedience and our refusal to comply with any tyrannical order that tramples on our God-Given Rights, while we also see such tyranny destroyed and replaced with true freedom and liberty protected and defended by a government truly of, by and for the people.

NO: We’re Not All In This Together

Even If It Means Hell On Earth  

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/24/2020 3:24 PM

 

Even though many Americans recognize most of the “orders” handed down from on high, by federal and state governments, from the very start of this COVID event were illegal and illegitimate, they still ask those of us who oppose the government diktats, “Why can’t you do as I did and come along with us for fellowship?”

 

They love their catch phrases such as “We’re all in this together” and “Alone together”.

 

And say we die, and they are sent to Heaven for doing as their conscience implored and demanded, and I and my Fellow American Patriots are sent to Hell for turning away from that which our own conscience implored and demanded. Will they come along with me and my Countrymen for the same convenient fellowship they now demand?

 

So many Americans have lost their way and are willing to go to Hell — and consign the rest of their Countrymen to that same Hell — for the sake of not rocking the boat, adopting the age old “go along to get along” mentality.

 

For fellowship.

 

They want to keep peace with their wives, not lose their jobs — are desperate to open their businesses, even at half capacity and under tortured restrictions that all but assure they will go out of business, if they haven’t already.

 

They want to be able to actually attend church in person, in a most engaged manner, to eat inside a restaurant, and get a haircut. And to those ends, many are far too willing to give up more liberty than they know and to … come along. To sigh and don the Mask of Fear and walk between the painted lines, like herded cattle, as if they had just been arrested for something. They are far too willing to accept the “new normal”, that expects us to behave and accept less than the same treatment any free person should rightfully see daily, as if they and each human on the planet is a COVID-dripping Typhoid Mary … all for the sake of fellowship and being “Alone Together”.

 

They suggest in an insane manner that all of this is reasonable, even necessary; or, at the very least, that it’s something we just have to go along with.

 

For fellowship.

 

Even if it means Hell on Earth.

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death


Patrick Henry speech: “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death

 

Although I don’t agree that President Trump is a bad guy (or at least not yet) in his Federal government decisions, I do agree absolutely the Federal government and many Dem-managed State and local governments are breaking the U.S. Constitution into pieces in the name of the ChiCom unleashed COVID-19, Globalism and ultimately Communism. Justin Smith takes the robbing of Liberty to task.

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death:

Free Born Americans Don’t Need Permission

 

By Justin O. Smith

Even the bad guys are admitting it, and that is they made these dire predictions so that they could go ahead and destroy peoples’ civil liberties and spend a lot of money and make up an excuse on why the stock market actually went down — all kinds of things by having this coronavirus event blown way out of proportion.”  ~ Ron Paul, former Congressman and Presidential Candidate

 

If a government wishes to alleviate, rather than aggravate, a depression, its only valid course is laissez-faire [Blog Editor: Laissez-faire is a central to American Liberty yet eradicated as an economic principle by Statists and Dem-Marxists in particular. Since I have doubts Laissez-faire principles are taught to Americans these days, you should acquaint yourself. Three brief self-education examinations: Merriam-Webster, Encyclopaedia Britannica and Investopedia] — to leave the economy alone. Only if there is no interference, direct or threatened, with prices, wage rates and business liquidation, will the necessary adjustment proceed with smooth dispatch.”  ~ Murray Rothbard, ‘America’s Great Depression’

 

The President who once stated “America will never be a socialist country”, President Donald J. Trump, is currently taking America down a path far and away from the free market and liberty, in general, in a manner that will only succeed in creating a situation for a greater economic collapse in the future, and perhaps the final collapse. He is answering the current economic collapse with big government, massive spending solutions, handouts and social projects, in the fashion of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose authoritarian policies ushered in a decade of economic misery and extended the disastrous effects of the Great Depression by years; and, this is certain to end badly for America, as the country is led further towards a deep depression and complete socialism, and, quite likely, greater control over all society, falling into a more extreme political environment and full blown Statism [Blog Editor: Statism defined – Your Dictionary and Ayn Rand Lexicon].

 

All Americans should be filled with some great degree of fear and anger as We recall President Trump at the White House, well-intentions or otherwise, recently stating, on April 13th: “When somebody is President of the United States, the authority is total. The governors know that.” This is such an egregiously outright erroneous, factually and historically inaccurate statement [Blog Editor: 10th Amendment and Implication] as to boggle one’s mind that any elected official, much less a sitting President, would so easily and assertively let such a remark pass their lips. This shows that Trump is neither the “stable genius” or the friend to the Constitution he portrays himself to be, and he isn’t anywhere close to understanding anything whatsoever regarding our U.S. Constitution and our nation’s founding; and it sends a flood of hot anger through me to hear such an anti-freedom and anti-liberty view held by a man who is sworn to defend freedom. [Blog Editor: President Trump can be infuriating when he makes 10th Amendment mistakes but on a personal level I’m not ready to toss him under the bus because he is used to corporate management despotism (remember, “You’re fired!”?), doesn’t mean Trump is averse to private correction. I suspect private correction has occurred because Trump has already walked back the I am totally in charge attitude toward the States. No matter how often President Trump screws up he drives Dem-Communists and their MSM propaganda tools nuts. As long that happens I’ll look for the best and pray the worst Trump decisions don’t activate the worst ends. But that is me – the Blog Editor.]

 

President Trump may as well have simply stated, “I am the State.”

 

This national shutdown of America by the Federal and State governments has crushed nearly every business in the country and put millions of Americans out of work, in the process, that also resulted in a crash in tax revenues at the federal, state and local levels. If the economy remains debilitated by government interference beyond May 1st, America is looking at an economic decline, a Greater Depression, that will not see its end for two decades, give or take a few years.

 

The best thing that could have been done was to allow the economy to continue to operate and function as normally as possible, rather than shut the nation’s entire economy down in a panic over a virus that represented so minimal a threat to the greatest majority of the people [Blog Editor: The Sweden and Brazil approach to COVID-19 you won’t hear about from MSM]. Somehow, the new Trump GOP was unable to use any semblance of cogent thought to arrive at this same conclusion; and so, they succumbed to the badgering of the Democratic Party Communists and passed the $8.3 billion vaccine bill, the $100 billion relief and paid leave package and the $2.2 trillion all-encompassing Dream Bailout — most of it is corporate socialism, as they currently propose several more $2 trillion packages that double-down on all the “Free Stuff” that was contained in the first Trump stimulus, that passed without any debate on a voice vote rather than an actual recorded vote.

 

Trump, RINO globalists and Trumpified “Republicans”, now Bernie Sanders socialists, have joined hands with the “progressive” Democratic Party Communists to open the U.S. Treasury to a massive theft that would create an indescribable envy in the hearts of the New Deal porkers, the Great Society big spenders and the Obama cartel cronies. And, as they also move towards a $2 trillion or more “stimulus/infrastructure” bill, and a deficit that will be $3 trillion this year and next, they are engaging in a fiscal drunken revelry that will leave America with outrageous and criminal debts, political dysfunction and economic debilitation and catastrophe for decades to come.

 

Look at what these criminals advocated and passed and then tell me they don’t need to be hung from the railings of the Capitol Building:

 

$25,000,000 for additional salary for the House of Representatives (Doesn’t that just blow your mind?)

 

$20,000,000 for UPS (for who knows what)

 

$300,000,000 for the Endowment for the Arts (as if they said, “Let’s do it. They’ll never know)

 

$300,000,000 for the Endowment for the Humanities

 

$435,000,000 for mental health support (that’s a lot of suicide hotlines)

 

$30,000,000,000 for the Department of Education stabilization fund (WOW, that’s massive. They need it to complete the indoctrination of children into the Communist ideology. I wonder how much goes to the socialists of the NEA?)

 

$200,000,000 to Safe Schools Emergency Response to Violence Program (because the virus causes students to be violent???)

 

$720,000,000 to the Social Security Administration (However, only $200,000,000 of this goes to benefit people. The rest goes to administration costs.)

 

$25,000,000 for Cleaning supplies for the Capitol Building (Yes it’s true. See page 136)

 

And these few examples don’t even begin to scratch the surface of the theft that is being perpetrated against the people through a massive bill that amounts to nothing less than a Grab Bag of Goodies for Congressmen, the lobbyists and their crony criminal CEOs and Wall Street.

 

The Democratic Party’s opposition to helping small businesses and their preference for handing out checks is sheer malevolence; in that they will hand a person a fish to feed them for a day and stand nearby as their policies destroy people’s ability to remain gainfully employed. Jobs and pensions alike are being destroyed as we speak. The Democratic Communists and Republican Statists and Communists have no consideration of the consequences of their actions [Blog Editor: Sadly, Justin is 100% correct], and they will eventually have to raise taxes as any future attempt to issue more debt will prove difficult in the midst of an economic collapse. One cannot help but see this as a deliberate move to force a Universal Basic Income in place of employment in order to create a larger welfare state. And the Paycheck Protection Act is simply one more big government program that facilitates this very thing.

 

The Communists within our government barely did achieve the 216 members’ presence for a quorum, of sorts, after Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) demanded it and went on to suggest they were trying to subvert the Constitution. Although President Trump and former Senator John Kerry (D-Mass) criticized Massie for the move as “grandstanding”, Massie pushed back stating that it wasn’t “grandstanding” when one defends the Constitution.

 

Massie further justified his dissent, stating, “I came here to make sure our Republic doesn’t die by unanimous consent in an empty chamber, and I request a recorded vote.”

 

Americans understand what it means when seventeen millions of their countrymen — a full 10 percent of the workforce are added to the unemployment rolls in the past month, with projections that suggest it could go as high as 47 million, if not ended soon. We are appalled to see modern day bread lines at local food banks stretch for miles in the heart of America’s once proud cities, such as Philadelphia, and we — at least the Conservative Americans — are angered at the knowledge our fiat Monopoly Money debt rises over $24 trillion and the Sovietization of Wall Street and our economy has been completed by the Federal Reserve Bank.

 

Americans also understand what it means when billionaires such as Bill Gates start explaining that only their new experimental mRNA vaccines will release us from this nightmare and provide us with the “certificates” that allow us to return to work. We — the Christians and true Conservative liberty-minded Americans — are truly angered to hear of threats to mark us with invisible ink tattoos, and we are infuriated to hear them say that we will not be able to buy or sell and participate in the economy until we can prove our “immunity”.

 

It means that the New World Order is upon us and charging at a furious rate of speed to finish the job of ending America’s republic.

 

Never did the simple, plain good and decent Americans suspect that someday their so-called “protectors” and “leaders” would lead them to the slaughter, but while some may say we were stupid, by and large, far too many Americans are naive and innocent [Blog Editor: It is this Editor’s current opinion that business mogul turned President Trump is among the naïve though probably not innocent] when it comes to seeing through their government’s Machiavellian machinations. They are trusting, peaceable and cooperative by nature, and that is nothing to be derided. If it weren’t for the predatory criminals in our midst who gain seats in all levels of government, their failings could be seen as virtues.

 

To date, an unimaginable number of our political, financial, corporate, religious “leaders” at every level, such as Jerome Powell, Steven Mnuchin and Larry Kudlow, have revealed their true nature and their willingness to violate moral and ethical codes to facilitate the current Trump agenda, that does not align with the Constitution or the views of liberty-minded Americans. They, like top federal bureaucrats and Congressional leaders, have confirmed they are one party, that is loyal to corporate and banking interests, and completely willing to destroy the livelihoods of nearly all Americans to keep the top one percent enriched and empowered. And, more than likely, they will continue to do so until every manjack among us picks up a rifle and puts an end to it all, in order that Americans may one day achieve real freedom and liberty.

 

So my mission is to awaken all my countrymen and say, “Fight like Hell to save Freedom and Liberty in America!”

 

Free born Americans do not need permission to buy and sell anything, to leave our homes to assemble and speak our minds, because the government doesn’t have the right to know where we are, who we meet or what we are buying and our every move each hour of the day. Each of us are free to leave our homes as we desire and wish, for any reason, including work, despite illegal “orders” from incompetent or criminal “leaders” on the advice of intelligentsia knaves and fools far too willing to serve an agenda that destroys liberty in America. [bold text by Editor and I concur.]

 

There are dark forces using this virus for ulterior motives and creating an economic collapse that will cost more lives than anything we will ever see from COVID-19, and, as the veil of civilization is pulled aside, everything past generations have fought to secure and achieve is now at risk. The economy expanded and life expectancy increased all due to the prosperity initially created in America’s earliest years of constitutional governance and unfettered capitalism. Now, that is all being undone.

 

Not one single red-blooded freedom and liberty loving American should ever be willing to sacrifice their liberty and freedom for the safety and security of a corporate fascist oligarchy that has bastardized our Constitution and now pretends to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Any liberty mistakenly abandoned may never return to us, or it may be a long time coming.

 

Our fragile constitutional Republic and civilization itself rests in our hands. It will take a people with great courage to defend our **Founding Principles, if we are to survive as a civilization, society and nation. So long as we remember the blood of our brave ancestors flowing through our veins and remain brave ourselves, in the face of great adversity and danger, our desire to live free will never be extinguished and it will burn brightly in the lamp of Liberty forever.

 

**[Blog Editor: Again, the concept of Founding Principles is a forgotten subject matter in most American school curriculum. So consider some self-education:

 

 

 

 

 

 

And at some point, in the not too distant future, Americans will have to recapture that spirit that was once inherent to us all — the one that said, “Give me Liberty or Give Me Death“. [Blog Editor: Some Patrick Henry historical perspective]

Confronting the Leviathan of the COVID-19 Crisis

 

By Anthony Rozmajzl

April 16, 2020

Foundation for Economic Education

 

The COVID-19 outbreak has made one thing clear: we are a nation that is quickly forgetting how to be free. How many people, in the face of economic panic, have knelt before our elected officials and financial authorities, yearning to be led out of this crisis and made secure in their livelihoods? How many people have taken comfort in the small amount of safety that comes from knowing that millions are not allowed to go to work and support their families, or leave their homes for anything other than what the government deems necessary?

 

Increasing Government Powers

 

How many have taken comfort in knowing that the police, in complete violation of the fourth amendment, are conducting unwarranted searches for civilians not following quarantine mandates? How many have gained a sense of peace in the idea of forced checkpoints and the government’s ability to dictate what companies ought to produce? How many people have taken comfort in their measly share of the $2 trillion stimulus package, which was financed from their own income and savings in the first place? And how many people have marveled at the government’s power to indefinitely shut down the economy and bring millions of lives to a halt?

 

It appears we live in a nation of people who have chosen to dismiss, or are blissfully ignorant of, the wealth of historical evidence—expertly documented in Robert Higgs’s Crisis and Leviathanwhich lays bare the state’s tradition of arrogating unwarranted powers during crises and emergencies, powers that never fully recede from its arsenal of economic and political manipulation once the crisis subsides. Higgs described this pattern as the “ratchet effect” and documented its unfolding throughout critical events of the 20th century—most notably the Great Depression and both World Wars.

 

In each crisis, the government assumed incredible powers to manipulate both the economy and the court of public opinion. For example, World War I alone saw the initiation of the War Industries Board, the War Labor Board, the Espionage Act, the Food Administration, the Fuel Administration, the Railroad Administration, and many others. The War Industries Board and War Labor Board, for example, represented one of the most invasive economic planning attempts by our government to date. And the Espionage Act, created to prohibit interference with military operations, military recruitment, and punish enemy support, was also used to silence opponents of the draft and those who exercised their right to speak out against American involvement in the war.

 

After the war ended, every bureaucratic creation mentioned above was formally scrapped, except for the Espionage Act, which remains on the government’s books to this very day. This is but one example of Higgs’s “ratchet effect” where not every power assumed by the government during an emergency is fully relinquished after the FINISHING READING

Regardless if you have the opinion that Rick Joyner’s (Joyner bios: Believers Portal & Wikipedia) theology is way out there or right on, the insights I just read on Church/State separation are spot on. Pay particular attention to the facts that various State Constitutions incorporated on religion that were repealed but NOT struck down by SCOTUS to demonstrate the Original Intent of America’s Founders. IT IS NOT THE LIVING CONSTITUTION crap America’s Left (Dem-Marxists) are trying to brainwash you to believe.

A Clear Vision—Heritage Brief 10

Word of the Week

 

By Rick Joyner

March 10, 2020

MorningStar Ministries

 

Following up on the fact that nowhere in The United States Constitution does it state that there must be a separation between the church and the state, it only states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Because Congress was the Federal Government, this did not prohibit the states from establishing a recognized religion if they chose to, and many of them did.

 

For example, a couple of states made it a requirement to be of the Protestant faith to vote. Others required church attendance to vote. This did not make these laws right, and eventually they were all repealed, but that this was allowed proved that the states had authority to do such things under The Constitution. The Constitution only forbade Congress from establishing religion.

 

These religious test laws by some states were legal under The Constitution, but they were not right, and they did cause problems. The wisdom of how these matters could be worked out by the states while the whole country was not subjected to the turmoil they caused proved to be genius.

 

It has only been when the Federal Government started to exceed the authority given to it in The Constitution, and thereby encroach on the rights of the states and the people, that the turmoil and divisions this has caused became national and threatened to tear the nation apart. These unnecessary pressures will continue to grow until the Federal Government returns to its constitutional boundaries, and the rights of the states and the people that it has usurped is returned to them.

 

Concerning the proper and constitutional relationship between the church and the state, we have all likely witnessed men and women who were good friends ruin that friendship by getting married. It is a worthy goal for those who are married to be friends, but the love for each as friends may not work well in the more committed bonds of marriage. This is why many languages have different words for these two types of affection—friendship and romantic love. The point is that the church and the state should have a relationship as friends, but not marriage.

 

The church is called to be the bride of Christ, alone. In relation to the bride of Christ, the state is called to be like the eunuchs who provided security for the king and his bride. They defend her if necessary, but they can have no relationship with her beyond this.

 

When the relationship between church and state went beyond what it is supposed to be, it brought upon the earth the darkest of times—the Dark Ages. The abuses of the wrongful union of the church to the state was deeply impressed on the early Americans. Many had been witnesses to, or victims of, the horrible corruption that came from this wrongful union of the church and state in Europe, which culminated in the worst persecution in human history—The Inquisition.

 

The Inquisition was the persecution by Christians of other Christians and Jews. It was only possible by the institutional church being married to the state at that time. Christians and Jews who would not conform to the dogma of the institutional church of the time were slaughtered on an incomprehensible scale. Halley’s Bible Handbook estimates that up to 50 million of these non-conformist Christians and Jews were tortured and killed in The Inquisition. This number is corroborated by other historians. We can read in such works as Foxe’s Book of Martyrs the kind of demented and diabolical tortures used by The Inquisition. This was truly one of mankind’s darkest hours, and done in the name of Christ by the harlot church that had wrongfully married the state.

 

With many of the first colonists being victims of this persecution—and the leaders of the independence movement in America knowing their stories well—when The British imposed a law on the colonies that no minister of the gospel could be licensed except through The Church of England, it was intolerable to the colonists.

 

The Founders of the American Republic were resolute in ensuring that such a thing would never happen in America. To do this they established the government first and foremost on the freedom of religion, resolving to keep the Federal Government out of religion, but a protector of religious freedom.

 

As the Jews of Europe were persecuted along with the Protestants and other Christian movements, they also fled to America to escape. They were both welcomed and honored by their Christian fellow colonists. Those of other religions, or no religion, also found in America the tolerance and freedom they had not found anywhere else in the world. America was born as a haven for religiously persecuted people.

 

The American Founders were resolved to keep the church and state as separate entities, but it was clearly to keep the state out of the church’s business, not the other way around. We must then ask, how did The Supreme Court and many lower courts issue so many decisions prohibiting the free exercise of religion?  By blatantly violating The Constitution and The First Amendment. The leadership of Congress was too weak or inept to confront this tyrannical abuse by the judiciary.

 

If our Republic is to be preserved, we must recover the fact that The Supreme Court is not the “supreme law of the land”—The Constitution is. The Supreme Court has made many unconstitutional decisions in its history, some of which were reversed by later courts, but many have not. In recent times it is piling them up almost yearly because it has now departed so far from the lane The Constitution gave to the judiciary. If this is not corrected, it will soon cause the destruction of the Republic, just as Jefferson and other Founders warned.

 

We will cover these violations of The Constitution in more detail in future Briefs, along with the devastating impact they have had on the nation. The Judicial Branch may have been the biggest culprit in this, but all three branches are guilty of deviating from the clear and limited authority given to the Federal Government by The Constitution. The stress this has put on the entire country has us at the breaking point. Under The Constitution, the people are the sovereign. The longer we wait to demand that our Federal Government obey The Constitution, the greater the cost it will be to save our Republic.

Gun Control: The Die Is Cast


Virginia gun-grabbing legislation and Dem Party propaganda following the pro-gun protests demonstrates more tyrannical measures are forthcoming. Gun-grabbing and the examples of Dem Party lies during the Impeachment fiasco appears to be the continuing Dem modus operandi to terminate American Liberty and Freedom. To preserve the Republic vote the Founders’ Constitution. If Dem corruption prevails, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!

 

Justin Smith has some precise thoughts.

Gun Control: The Die Is Cast  

Free Americans Don’t Submit to Tyrannical Fiats

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/22/2020 1:30 AM

 

“One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation.” ~ Congressman Thomas Brackett Reed (1886)

 

Over the past five decades, the anti-American, anti-firearms tyrants have been forcefully striving in both Congress and States’ legislatures to suppress and completely eradicate anyone’s ability to exercise their right to keep and bear arms and to self-defense under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and recently, in this month of January, the people of Virginia experienced the consequences from giving Democrats full control over all three branches of government. Their first order of business was to pass a series of vindictive, retributive proposals out of committee that are aimed at the normal population of the state, starting with firearms and the law-abiding citizens who own them, and this gives us all a glimpse of what is ahead for America, during a juncture in history that is our most dangerous time for the Bill of Rights and individual liberty.

 

Lobby Day on January 20th has been a tradition in Virginia for several years now, whereupon its citizens take up issues and grievances with their lawmakers, and as such, it was only natural that, upon hearing of the egregious new “gun control” proposals, thousands of American patriots across Virginia and the entire country decided to descend on the Capitol in Richmond to decry such illegitimate and illegal actions, and the tyrannical process that tried to justify them.

 

Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase openly carried a .38 caliber firearm in a custom holster, on January 15th 2019, as she presented her pro-gun bills to a Senate committee. She explained, “It’s a deterrent for over-exuberant folks” when she was questioned over openly carrying a loaded firearm into the Senate committee meeting, as numerous other legislators had been doing for years, as permitted under existing Virginia law.

On January 16th, the Democratic Party majority in the Virginia state Senate passed bills that required: universal background checks; limited firearm purchases to one a month; gave illegitimate powers to local governments to ban weapons; and imposed a permanent ban on carrying firearms inside the Capitol and legislative building, essentially seeking to eradicate current state law that permits it. They reciprocated as expected to Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety organization, that had donated a total of $2.5 million specifically to see this gun control agenda come to fruition.

 

They are even seeking to forbid the private transfer of firearms, which also violates our right to own property and dispense of it as we choose, under the 5th Amendment . Their attacks on the “gun show loophole” is simply arbitrary and tyrannical nonsense. It is the Democratic Party communists’ precursor to firearm licensing and confiscation, and when all the firearms are accounted for in a database somewhere, they can readily be confiscated on the assigned day.

 

It’s worth noting that any “law” that attacks the weapon rather than the crime or the criminal is one that is illegitimate, since it must automatically falsely assume that anyone carrying any weapon is doing so for a malicious and criminal purpose. Likewise, permits, taxes and other such restraints on firearms unfairly impede and infringe on the rights of poor people in exercising this right. Designers of such “law” assume the worse of people and deny that anyone might be just an innocent, good man going armed for the lawful purpose of self-defense. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that a person can keep and bear arms if he meets certain standards first; the Second Amendment carries absolutely no qualifiers.

 

Several previous statements from Democratic lawmakers had indicated that this was the direction they would go, and in fact, they made no secret of it during their campaigns. It was with this in mind that the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League organized a peaceful rally scheduled for January 20th and Lobby Day, with the stated intentions of dissuading lawmakers from pursuing this illiberal, gun-grabbing agenda. Also, this foreshadowing of tyranny to come prompted 100 of Virginia’s counties to declare themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries”.

 

The people weren’t quite fully antagonized until these bills were actually passed and sent forth. And they were further antagonized, when Governor Ralph Northam used a manufactured crisis to issue a Declaration of Emergency — Executive Order 49 — and an illegal and UnConstitutional temporary gun ban, that also included knives and sticks from January 17th until 5:00 PM January 21st; and some within his camp suggested the National Guard might be used to enforce it. Northam used the highly timely and suspicious and questionable arrests of six “suspected neo-Nazis” in the four days prior to the rally, including a Canadian army reservist with supposed ties to “hate groups”, which given Canada’s current leftist nature could only mean those standing for liberty.

 

Northam’s “state of emergency” claim was challenged by Gun Owners of America and the Virginia Civil Defense League, through an emergency injunction filed against the governor. Lobby Day has been attended for years by the very same people Governor Ralph Northam tried to paint as “radical, right wing extremists” and “violent white supremacists” with the help of the Leftist media in America, such as MSNBC and CNN and ABC “news” networks. And, it is at this point one must certainly wonder what actual good comes from lobbying, when your so-called “representatives”, the Court and the governor are traitors to the Constitution and the people of Virginia and America, all too ready and willing to impose their lawless tyranny.

 

As noted before the Virginia State Supreme Court, which later upheld the ban, in 2012, the General Assembly specifically forbade the Governor by law from using a declaration of emergency to ban firearms.

 

Whatever Northam hoped to accomplish, his actions only ensured that thousands of good, decent and fine American Patriots from all across America would arrive, openly displaying military-style semiautomatic rifles and “Guns Save Lives” stickers, chanting “USA” as they waved “Come and Take It” banners and sang our National Anthem.  And by 10:30 AM on the morning of the 20th, fifty-five hundred were already inside the “Cage” erected around the Capitol by authorities. By the middle of the day, almost 60,000 total were in the Capitol area protesting [police estimates place the number closer to 30,000], and they were peacefully demanding these Democratic Party anti-Second Amendment proposals and “laws” be stopped from going any further.

 

As reported by the NYTs, Teri Horne, of Quitman, Texas, arrived with about three dozen women from the Open Carry Texas organization. They drove twenty-four hours ‘to support the people in Virginia’, as they stood armed on the sidewalk across from the entrance to the Capitol grounds. Ms. Horne was armed with a Smith and Wesson M&P 15T rifle, toting a Texas flag, too.

 

Another pro-gun protester, Logan Smith, of Indianapolis, said: “It matters to me back home. Seeing stuff like this (gun control legislation) being pushed, it doesn’t sit well.”

 

Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County, Virginia, an outspoken longtime gun rights advocate, spoke to the gathered crowd and offered the following: “I ask you all to return to your homes and ask your elected officials, where is the line they will not cross?”

 

Not one violence related arrest occurred during the entire day, and the protest did not grow heated, despite Gov. Northam’s and law enforcement’s warnings of out-of-state “hate groups”, militias and angry, violent neo-Nazis descending on Virginia, repeated frequently and loudly by the media. There was one arrest that resulted from a young lady’s refusal to remove the bandana from her face, violating Virginia’s laws against masking one’s face.

 

It’s a curious matter to hear Northam decry violence, when he and his supporters and staff have spent decades doing violence against Christianity, decency and common sense, investing their life’s work to destroying and dismantling America, as they consistently attempt to intimidate conservative Americans. Let’s not forget, Gov. Northam is the same man who publicly advocated murdering “unwanted” babies even after they had been placed alive on the delivery room table; he and his party are lovers of death, master manipulators and propagandists accustomed to getting their way.

 

Even more curious and insidious, from approximately 5:54 PM January 16th through the 20th, a U-28A , a manned, airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, single engine, modified Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, under the Air Force Special Operations Command, was spotted circling the Virginia Capitol. It was tracked to Camp Peary, near Williamsburg, Virginia, that plays host to the CIA’s covert training operations at “The Farm” and the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Defense Clandestine Service.

 

Although James Madison and Thomas Jefferson were discussing the federal government in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, they wrote, these resolutions’ words can equally apply to the states. They state: “Resolved, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government … and whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void and of no force.”

 

Just as three thousand WWII Veterans used their Second Amendment right, to stop a corrupt Sheriff and 200 deputies from stealing an election in Athens, TN in 1946 and Monroe, North Carolina’s Black Guard used firearms to defend themselves from a violent, murderous Ku Klux Klan chapter in the 1960s, each and every single U.S. citizen has the absolute right to defend themselves against any criminal attack and any act of tyranny by any government entity, be it federal or state. Similarly one can exercise this right of self-defense to repel any group that advocates and uses violence in attempts to forcefully subjugate others, in the manner that today’s New Black Panthers advocate for the murder of white people at every opportunity and Antifa Communists call for killing and/or “re-educating” conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters, by use of force. This Second Amendment right — this God-Given Right — cannot be abrogated or eradicated by any majority’s man-made “law” designed to end one’s liberty.

 

Several other states have either already passed extreme anti-firearm legislation, similar to Colorado, or they are moving to do so, like Georgia, Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Hawaii and several others. One should also note that approximately 110 “gun laws” have been proposed in Congress already this year.

 

So no one should be resting easy, simply because this rally went off without any major confrontation. Governor Ralph Northam and his Democratic Party communist cronies listened and they are unimpressed and moving ahead with the gun bills, business as usual, as though nothing has happened. Anyone who still thinks the normal rules of governance are in play is denying the new reality, that the Democrats of today are beyond reason, and Northam and his leftist cabal, the chattering globalists of Virginia, are not to be trusted or respected, and they will remain unmoved by any pleas to guard Constitutional norms, the Bill of Rights, individual rights.

 

America has entered a post-Constitution era, or so it seems, whereby a new template is forming for fascist state governments in any of the fifty states to suppress our individual liberty and completely control their people, since freedom and liberty mean nothing to these new Democratic Party communists and statists, who act like rulers rather than representatives of the people. This is the most important issue in the nation, as America witnesses Machiavellian politics and actions, that have taken the situation in our country beyond the pale, the most dangerous times of our history, whereby our system fails us and tyranny is taking the day. And with no relief found in a failed system, by way of representatives, courts, and even elections, we are left alone to our own devices and days that demand the Tree of Liberty be Watered with the Blood of Tyrants, as we are unwilling to submit to illegitimate, illegal and tyrannical fiats.

 

[Blog Editor – a history to present lesson about Dem-communist repression:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Second Amendment’s primary function is to serve as an affirmation of the people’s right to fight off any tyrannical government or force, both foreign and domestic, and the Framers of the Constitution wrote it in a direct response to the tyranny the early Americans had experienced at the hands of the British, not as a hunting license. In Federalist Paper No. 46, James Madison wrote that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every nation … [where] the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” And Thomas Jefferson concluded: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”

 

The die is cast in Virginia and across America, and this rising trend towards government overreach, violating the Bill of Rights and tyranny will not stop, until the American people place some well-deserved fear in the hearts and minds of these anti-American legislators, all across the country, bringing them to the full realization that they do not rule over the people. If that ultimately means bloodshed, so be it.

 

The right to keep and bear arms is imperative to the God-given Right of every man, woman and child to be free of the evil tyrants who walk the halls of government.

 

The law violated and ignored, moral persuasion constantly falling on deaf ears, and freedom and liberty at stake. The only thing left is the bullet.
