FIRE HYDRANT OF FACTS ON THE CONTESTED ELECTION

 

By KAREN HARDIN

DECEMBER 3, 2020 

Intercessors For America

 

May our prayers penetrate heaven like an open fire hydrant on behalf of our nation for God’s intervention in this great time of need. We pray for perseverance and faith. God, we look to You in all these things.

 

I know we are all tired of the constant flow of information, especially contradictory information, regarding the election. It’s like a fire hydrant has been turned on and it feels overwhelming. As I was praying this morning, I thought if I feel this overwhelmed, I wonder how others feel as we all work to process fact from fiction. Most of what is below is referred to as “conspiracy theory” or erroneous by the mainstream media. But it is accurate.

 

This is to help give you an overview of what is currently taking place, much of which you will not hear from the media who are working very, very hard to convince us that Joe Biden has won and to treat him as if he is already president.

Here are some recent facts:

 

  1. The federal judge overseeing Sidney Powell’s election lawsuit in Georgia issued a temporary restraining orderlate Sunday night, declaring that election officials were barred from wiping or altering Dominion voting machines used in the November election. (Epoch Times) A lawsuit of similar proportions was simultaneously filed in Michigan. However, as Powell and her team wait for judges to act, access to Dominion servers in many counties is being blocked and some servers removed and hidden so they cannot be checked. Obviously, if there is nothing to hide, why do this? Their actions tell the true story.

 

How to pray? That evidence of this kind, not only in Georgia and Michigan but also every single state, will not disappear or be destroyed, but will be submitted and every illegality be brought to light and thrown out so that we, the American people, can be assured of a fair result to the election. Also pray for protection and strength for Sidney Powell and her team as she has received death threats against her and her family. Pray also for speed. The clock is ticking and those in charge of the voting machines are stalling to prevent access to all the needed information. This alone speaks volumes.

 

  1. Sidney Powell’s lawsuit in Georgia detailed that Iran and China appear to have tampered with U.S. elections in order to help Joe Biden. Attorney Abigail Frye, who works with Powell, said Iranian and Chinese operatives had access to Dominion Voting Systems in several key states. The suit asserts Iran and China were monitoring and manipulating U.S. elections to get their desired outcome this year. The attorney cited the data was provided by the 305th U.S. Military Intelligence Battalion. (One America News)

 

Note: You may have heard Sidney Powell’s statement she was going to “release the Kraken.” According to my sources, it refers to the 305th U.S. Military Intelligence Battalion nicknamed “the kraken” after a gigantic sea monster of tremendous strength and multiple arms. They are a highly skilled team in cyber intelligence among other things (many arms).

 

How to pray: For their strength and protection and no mole infiltration as they continue this fight. Pray that all foreign interference in our elections will be uncovered and stopped. In many cases these countries were given back door access by corrupt officials in our country. These individuals need to be exposed and brought to justice as well.

 

  1. Although the companies deny it, there is legitimate evidence that Dominion Voting Machines and Smartmatic software ARE connected and working in tandem. Also connected in this scheme is Scytl and Edison Research, which by its own admission “conducts market research and exit polling, providing strategic information for businesses and media organizations worldwide.” How do they connect? To the best of my knowledge, it appears that Dominion was the voting machine, Smartmatic is the software, Scytl was the “security” program within the software, and Edison Research released skewed data to the media, so they would all state the same thing, to deceive the American public.

 

We now know that these machines were originally created and used for Hugo Chavez in Venezuela specifically to steal elections. A national security guard for Chavez, who was involved in the original meetings regarding the Dominion machines and Smartmatic and their operation, has come forward to testify.

 

How to pray: For protection over every witness and for their courage. Also, in every county and state where these voting systems were used, that the fraudulent results would be thrown out not only in the presidential election, but every down ballot election as well.

 

  1. Dominion voting machines were used in 28 states including each of the contested battleground states. In one county in Michigan, the Dominion Voting Machines turned 6,000 Trump votes into Biden votes. The machines were used in 47 counties in Michigan, 40 counties in California, and all of the counties in Georgia. The company also provides machines and software to counties in Florida, Iowa and Ohio, Alaska, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Tennessee and Utah.

The number of counties that use Dominion machines varies by state.

 

How to pray? That any and all illegalities in these counties will be revealed and exposed and that the true vote will be brought to light. Pray also for exposing of the states and officials who scrambled to install Dominion voting machines just prior to the election.

 

  1. A contractor for Dominion Voting Systems who performed IT work at the TCF Center in Michigan along with a former state senator who was a poll challenger both say that the voting machines used in the Nov. 3 election were connected to the internet. (Epoch Times)

 

  1. The raid in Frankfurt, Germany which seized Dominion/Scytl voting machine servers, which the media vehemently claims didn’t happen, did, but at a great cost. We have learned this weekend that the raid was conducted by military intelligence against corrupt U.S. CIA operatives who were working at/guarding the facility. According to retired Air Force Lt. General Thomas McInerney, who served an illustrious career in top military positions and is a friend of Lt. General Mike Flynn, U.S. Special Forces were involved in an operation to secure the servers that contain crucial information to prove the reality of voter fraud in the 2020 election. This securing of evidence came at a great price as U.S. soldiers were killed in this raid, as well as one of the CIA operatives. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media is trying to discredit and disparage General McInerney and dispute his assertions.

 

How to pray? For the families of those who lost their lives to secure the truth and keep America free. This battle which we wage on our knees is being waged in combat behind the scenes. Pray regarding the ongoing battle for truth regarding these voting machines and software and protection for those fighting on the front lines. Pray also for those who are speaking out, risking their reputation and standing.

 

  1. Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat, pressed for certification of Arizona’s election results on Monday despite the fact that additional lawsuits of irregularities were being filed that day regarding the results. Like other swing states, there is evidence of illegalities during the voting process. For example, one woman, who said she worked as a volunteer poll observer in Arizona’s Pima County, claimed she was told by election officials to allow people to vote who may not have been properly registered to vote in Arizona on Election Day.

 

“I was having to allow people to vote who literally had just moved here. A large percentage had addresses from two apartment complexes,” Anna Orth told GOP Arizona State legislators.

 

Orth remarked that “many” of these individuals were “residents for not more than a month.” (Epoch Times) Similarly, there is a huge push right now to get people to move to Georgia before the December 7 deadline for voter registration.

 

How to pray? The states that are pressing in to certify contested voting counts reveal the corruption within these states. Pray that erroneous or illegal certifications will be stopped or undone. Also, pray that certification will not be permitted in places with ongoing lawsuits. Pray also for exposure of all state officials who are pushing for certification without addressing eyewitness accounts of fraud.

 

  1. A lawyer on the Trump legal team in Pennsylvania has shared that a joint resolution was introduced on Saturday to the Pennsylvania legislature for new state electors to be chosen. Unfortunately, since the legislators had all returned home it would require they return to discuss and pass any new legislation. Here’s what’s weird, Speaker of the House Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster County, and Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, R-Centre County, refused to bring the issue to a vote because they said there was no time to take legislative action on this year’s results and refused to call the House back into session.

 

This is the most important election in America’s history and these Republican legislators can’t be bothered to call the House back into session? Does something smell to you in that decision? If there is even a possibility of fraud, or in this case faithless electors, wouldn’t you want to do everything in your power to ensure the integrity of the vote? And yet these Republican leaders say they can’t be bothered this year.

 

A similar proposition for a joint resolution is being introduced in Arizona and other swing states.

 

Pennsylvania is key to this election. The PA Supreme Court ensured a corrupt vote when they determined that signatures on the ballots did not need to match as well as extending the date after the election to accept ballots.

 

How to pray: That the vast corruption in Pennsylvania leadership, now exposed, will be brought to justice. That government leaders not only in Pennsylvania, but across America, will work FOR the American people and not against us to achieve their own goals and control. That corrupt officials will be removed from their positions and replaced with those who will work for the good of the American people.

 

This is by no means a comprehensive list of all that has taken place. That would take more pages than you have time to read or I have time to research. But it is a list of some of the most current and ongoing issues to help us to pray.

 

As Americans and intercessors what should we do with this information?

 

First, we must continue to fast and pray. A national fast has been called for this weekend: December 4, 9:00 a.m. to December 6, 9:00 p.m. This is just before the important dates of December 8 (certification of votes) and the December 14 vote by the electors.

 

Second, we need to walk in discernment. Wisdom should tell us that any “news” source that states there is “no credible evidence of election fraud” or that it is “debunked” should be an immediate red flag. Evidence continues to pour in steadily. So, a truthful news agency would at the least state that the election is contested as lawsuits continue. Anyone who says otherwise should not be trusted.

 

Last, the patriot lawyers and legal teams/clerks who have worked tirelessly since the election to investigate, uncover fraud, write briefs, and present evidence have given up their personal lives, not to mention Thanksgiving with family, to push this through as we approach the vote certification and electoral vote deadlines. They haven’t given up and so we cannot either. They continue to press into this in the natural and we must come alongside through prayer and speaking out.

 

President Trump and his family have been fighting this battle nonstop since he took office. Can you imagine? Not to mention the constant threat of assassination that has been against him since the results of the 2016 election. No one can withstand such an onslaught without God’s help.

 

We need to continue to lift all of them up in prayer, along with his administration who have faithfully served America and the American people.

 

We have prayed for America to unite. It is happening as we unite to fight an enemy that has been hidden in the shadows and far worse and evil than we ever imagined. We have prayed for revival. It is beginning as hundreds of thousands of believers have fallen on their knees to repent and pray for our nation.

 

Just as the information has come at us like an open fire hydrant, so may our prayers penetrate heaven like an open fire hydrant on behalf of our nation for God’s intervention in this great time of need. Don’t give up. God is going to show up.

The terrible sting of betrayal

 

Back Stabber

 

By Alison Tempestilli

December 3, 2020

American Thinker

 

This election-stealing business has such a blatant “in your face” feel to it, like a sticky-handed child covered in chocolate denying that he took the candy.  A theft of this magnitude would not be possible without a humongous amount of betrayal, and we have quite a few people to thank for that.

 

Now we understand Hidin’ Biden and Kamala’s pathetic low-energy, low-turnout campaign.  They did not need the inconvenience of pretending they were even a smidge qualified to run the country since the fix was in.  All Joe had to do was bumble off a few lame platitudes from time to time with enough cohesiveness to get by.  Strangely enough, even this proved difficult.  Kamala barely showed up, which was fine by all, since her screechy, preachy manner is repulsive to most living beings.  Nobody who loves our country will ever trust them or think them legitimate.

 

The media, including social media: Unfortunately, we have come to expect lies, omissions, and propaganda from the mainstream outlets, but the harsh betrayal from Fox News is what really stung.  It is true that the network has been leaning left of center for some time, but who would have thought the people running Fox would be the biggest betrayers of all on Election Night?  The double standard for calling Arizona for Biden when the counting had a long way to go and not calling Florida or Texas for Trump when it was clear that he was the winner makes Fox more responsible for election-tampering than any other media outfit.  They turned the tides on Trump and are deserving of the viewer hemorrhaging taking place.  They will never recover their lost audience.

 

RINOs and NeverTrumps: What can be said about these backstabbing frauds?  They have made a deal with the devil and have sacrificed their honor and any conservative principles they may have possessed at one time.  This group, by the way, includes Trump’s fair-weather friends who once exhibited a semblance of loyalty but now are downplaying the theft of an American election in order to suck up to the other side.  These turncoats will be regulated to the trash bin of phony conservatives and will never be accepted by either party.

 

Do not forget: it was not only outside forces tampering with this election, but also our fellow so-called Americans.  These traitors stood directly on the battle lines defying election laws by denying poll observers, filling out extra ballots with false names, destroying ballots for Trump, tampering with computer software, and transporting illegal ballots across state lines.  They have betrayed their country in a most profound way.  Their actions in undermining a free and fair election are reprehensible, and they will forever be looked upon with a suspicious eye.

 

The sting of betrayal leaves a mark, and this one feels deeper than any we’ve experienced as a country.  More than half of us will never forget those who deceived us and will likely regard all those complicit with the contempt and disgust they deserve.

Food for Thought!!

[Blog Editor: OR Think About Marxist-Dems, RINOs, MSM, Deep State and the Coronavirus!]

 

Author attribution: Burt Shur

….Like everyone who is a conservative thinking person, there is more going [on] here than you and I realize. Think about this, our whole world came crashing down a month ago, right after the failed impeachment of our President. The Democrats have been on this hate, get rid of Trump at all cost since before he was even elected. I have completely changed my opinion of the Democrats, I had to take a hard look back in our history and as long as we voted for a Deep State politician everything was OK.

 

But, when we as a country started to realize something was drastically wrong and there was really no difference between Democrats and Republicans and that’s when things really changed. The last three Presidents (Clinton, Bush, and Obama) were all Globalists (NWO) also not to forget Bush Sr. who really brought the term NEW WORLD ORDER to Americans attention. Like I said once I looked back it really hit me that the Communist party has always been doing very-very bad things to keep their power. They will do whatever it takes to remain in power. So, the coronavirus as we all know started in China. Here’s the thing, China is a Communist country, they don’t like Trump because they want to call the shots and Trump said, no more. We have been taken advantage of for years. Look at how long we have been losing our manufacturing, were did it go, China. Who supported that? All the Bushes, all the Clinton’s, the Obama’s, and all their Administrations, all Democrats. Do you see where this is all leading? Democrats have sold their souls to China. Biden and Feinstein are just two of a huge number.

 

Obama is probably the most corrupt out of all Presidents. He’s also been around Communists his whole life. From his mother, to his mentor Frank Marshall Davis and his handler John Brennan. Are you getting it? Obama made a big mistake when he was running, he basically said, he was going to fundamentally change America, well, he really did and we let him do it. Blacks were taken in because here they finally had the first black President. Obama knew they would do that, but where Obamacare made a big mistake is he didn’t do anything for the black community. All he did do was divide Americans  when we were moving forward in stopping the racial divide. That all stopped with Obama. He has done so much damage and continues to do huge damage. He spied on Trump and OK’d everything to do with FISA GATE, RUSSIA GATE. There are supposedly a thousand sealed indictments and Obama’s name has to be on at least one.

 

Where am I going with all this? I’ve really tried very hard to see this emergency as a very bad situation that just happened completely independently and unfortunately right now when things in America were going so good. We have never had this many jobs, and wealth! Well, the last blow to all is this coronavirus. I believe it was loosed on purpose. China really didn’t like the idea of manufacturing going back to US and no control over all the money making of our trade imbalance and Trump was fixing (for We The People).

 

The Commie Democrats are in partnership with China to bring the economy down and shut America completely down. Why? To get Trump out of the Presidency, bring his numbers down below 30%, they want him out. Please, think about this they have thrown everything at Trump and he’s weathered all the assaults. No other President could do this. This pandemic is real all right, and it is dangerous and it is killing people. But where and why it started, brings me to only one conclusion.  All this is bigger than any of us can comprehend. Democrats want their power back and to rule our lives, and have the NWO… Trump put a stop to their scheme and they don’t like it! Every Deep State person (Democrats and some Republicans) need to be arrested and indicted.

 

My other question  is where is Durham and Huber and Barr? We have been very patient, but the indictments must come now! Either we have laws or we are truly done. This is America’s only chance to regain our independence and freedom and bring back what Trump has been fighting for – The America that our forefathers set forth in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. We cannot lose what we have fought and died for since 1776. I’m tired of Congress holding Americans hostages. You work for us and those that don’t are out, and I mean out now. All Democrats (including  Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Omar, Talib, Cortez, Romney). If there is one thing I’ve learned from Trump is America first “period”!

 

Now comes the most disappointing part of what I’ve been saying. The MSM, all must be indicted on treason. That’s  CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PNR. They all have tried to bring Trump down, which means bring us down! They are un-American! This must stop!

I am on a disability but my wife has done quite well on a sales job and a Network Marketing healthy coffee (healthy as in I’ve lost 82 lbs. in a year) business that also provides vitamin-mineral-anti-oxidant supplements that might be beneficial for your family. I’d love to share the coffee business corporate name, but if you know anything about Network Marketing companies, they get a bit cranky about that practice in their policies and procedures. Suffice it to say my wife’s Network Marketing business provides FREE websites for online marketing. In my wife’s case she has bought several Domain Names linked to her website. My darling wife has told me the company has waved the sign-up fee for buyers during the pandemic crisis. You can access Diana Houk’s coffee network via this domain name: http://www.skinnyoptimumcoffee.com/.

 

Addressing my revenue issue. Among the many medical I’m overcoming I am only sharing one medical bill issue. I use a CPAP machine/mask in my sleeping hours. I need 10 people to donate $5.00 to my PayPal account to help pay a CPAP supply bill. It is my opinion this Pandemic is temporary and when over, our family revenue issue will self-correct.

Drop the Hammer on America’s Traitors


The Dems are traitors. It’s time to prosecute traitors even if it means a divided nation dukes it out. If elections can’t solve differences, what else is there to do? If half the nation is so dedicated to believing lies, what else is there to do?

Drop the Hammer on America’s Traitors

 

By Justin O. Smith

The Democratic Party has abused its power for decades, but never like it has today, as it has engaged in sedition and treason against a presidential candidate and the American people, since 2015, that continued into President Trump’s Administration. Their anti-American seditious mechanisms are still underway, through this current CIA Gossip Leaker imbroglio, while the real criminals and perpetrators of the numerous assaults on President Trump, such as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, James Clapper and John Brennan and so many others are still walking free across the land, and all freedom loving Americans should vow to never again give these anti-American communists a seat in the Oval Office, as most of us recoil in revulsion and anger over their treason, tyrannical methods, secret star chambers, closed-door “investigations” and unidentified accusers.

 

Anonymous sources are not permissible in America under the U.S. codified “due process of the law”, but Representative Adam Schiff must have missed that class in law school, if he even ever really attended. His weeks of buffoonery can only be seen as a futile attempt by him and his cronies to find a fall guy willing to pretend that he is the “whistleblower”. And let’s not forget that this is the same idiot who promised for two years that he had absolute proof positive of collusion between President Trump and Russia, with none of it ever coming to light in the Mueller report.

 

President Trump has failed from day one to completely acquiesce and defer to the supposed superior intellect and the authority of the national security establishment and D.C. political “elites”– the Deep State — in the same manner as Hillary Clinton and other Democrat hopefuls, which placed him in their scope sites from before day one. All sectors from the Pentagon, CIA, NSA and the FBI had already thrown in with Hillary Clinton, and this has been the motivation behind the national security establishment’s attacks against Donald Trump, even before he was elected and more so after he was elected.

 

Please recall that in his 1961 Farewell Address, President Eisenhower discussed the threats to liberty and democratic processes of the American people that one finds in the intimate, integrated relationships between many members of Congress, the CIA, Pentagon and NSA. Although he referenced the threats coming from the “military-industrial complex”, he had originally intended to use the term “military-industrial-congressional complex“, but changed his mind at the last minute. [Blog Editor: Other references to President Eisenhower’s change of mind on “military-industrial-congressional complex”:

 

The CIA Versus Donald J. Trump; By Tyler Durden; ZeroHedge; 10/12/2019 – 22:50

 

Ike’s Farewell Address: Liberals Are Wrong About The “Military Industrial Complex”; Posted by Gregg Hilton; Republican Security Council; 3/30/11

 

The link embedded in Justin’s quote above in my opinion provides the best context. Here is the links reference info: What Ike Feared “Has Come Upon Us”; By James M. Wall; Wallwritings; 2/10/14]

 

This entire episode has been a sham from the start, and the so-called “whistleblower” was only named such through legalistic legerdemain to conceal the origin of this affair, as a CIA ass-covering operation, with asses aplenty on display during the recent Democratic press releases and “Shifty” Schiff’s shameful lies, during his statement on the floor of the House, that completely changed and misrepresented what was actually said during President Trump’s telephone call with Ukraine’s president. One must marvel at Schiff’s idiocy. And now, Schiff and Pelosi are also circumventing “due process” through their refusal to take a vote on impeachment, which would change the entire balance of the proceedings.

 

The CIA Gossip Leaker isn’t even a “Whistleblower”, since he didn’t blow the whistle on the CIA and some dark-side practice, like drug experimentation on unsuspecting Americans, secret assets within the mainstream media or secret assassinations of Americans. Instead, this leaker simply revealed second hand gossip about a phone call he never heard, in a weak and thinly veiled attempt to once again smear President Trump and give the Democrats something to keep the impeachment frenzy alive, into the presidential election season.

 

Does Schiff actually believe he can conceal this whistleblower’s identity in a Senate impeachment trial, should it come?

 

This is the sort of thing one expects to see in Spanish inquisitions and old style Soviet show trials. From our earliest days and across history, Americans have extremely firm, longstanding objections to kangaroo courts and star chambers, that dispose of common law safeguards of due process.

 

On September 29th, President Trump shared a message tweeted by Pastor Robert Jeffress:

 

“[The Democrats are] increasingly aware of the fact that they won’t win against him [Pres. Trump] in 2020, and Impeachment is the only tool they have to get rid of Donald J. Trump — And the Democrats don’t care if they burn down and destroy this nation in the process. I have never seen the Evangelical Christians more angry over any issue than this attempt to illegitimately remove this President from office … They know the only Impeachable offense that President Trump has committed was beating Hillary Clinton in 2016. That’s the unpardonable sin for which the Democrats will never forgive him. If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this nation from which our Country will never heal.”

 

Most of America already realizes that the Democratic Party and its communist members are no friends to the principle of political liberty, or any liberty for that matter. Their shibboleths of diversity and inclusion are simply strategies aimed at eradicating free speech and dictating everybody’s “acceptable thoughts”. They are much more interested in control and coercion, than they are in seeking real “social justice” for anyone; and, much worse, they seek to use government as the instrument for enforcing their will, something all Americans must reject, if on principle alone.  [Blog Editor: At this point I think you might be interested in this Justin post: “Breakfast and Death in a Brave New World”]

 

Looking beyond this ongoing orchestrated coup, America finds a reality challenged Democratic Communist Party consumed by serial hysterias, like “climate change”, uninterested in truth, steeped in social despotism and absolutely 100 percent willing to do anything to gain and hold power. Each freedom loving American should be highly concerned with what Democrats will do should they ever regain power.

 

When the truth finally reveals itself, America will find that the Democratic Party was behind the 2016 election interference and the RussiaGate Hoax. That is the main reason they are still directing one false accusation after another at President Trump, in hopes of deflecting focus from their treason and, just maybe, causing enough doubt to force a Republican loss in 2020.

 

Heading into these dangerous days of autumn, the institutional damage done by the Democrats is deep, and something has got to give, as the current impeachment frenzy collides with the other dynamic forces in play and the secretive activities, to date, of Attorney General William Barr and his deputy, John Durham. When that happens, quite a few Deep State agents, i.e. Comey, Clapper and Brennan and many others, should be seeing the inside of a prison cell, after the dust from the ensuing political mayhem settles, if these two men have done their jobs properly.

 

Some so-called “Republican” advisors are telling Trump not to allow any indictments to come forward against former president Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, because it would be a “nation-destroying precedent”, even though the Democrats are currently facilitating and moving towards Trump’s own impeachment. These Democrats are already pushing America towards its destruction, with or without any indictments, and even if it is the last decent act of any moral people left in America, Obama and Hillary, the organizers of the sedition and treason against President Trump and America, who approved and encouraged the plot, from the Steele Dossier to the false FISA Warrants, must be indicted, prosecuted and imprisoned, if not executed.

 

Hopefully, the dark network known as the Intelligence Community will be burned by the heat of a thousand suns of truth that reveal any and all nefarious dealings in the recent subversive activities taken under the Obama administration, that facilitated a coup against a sitting U.S. president. The hammer is about to drop on America’s traitors, one way or another, and before all is said and done, America may full well see the current administrative civil war turn into a hot, bullets blazing civil war.

 

History abhors vacuums just as nature does, and America is currently facing a vacuum of authority never before experienced, with UkraineGate set to become a Fort Sumter moment, the consequence of a society in which anything goes and nothing matters. As tempers flare, everyone better check their principles and who they believe in days ahead, since this ain’t no foolin’ around, and once again the integrity of the Union is at stake.

Us vs Them


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

 

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

Us vs Them

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

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/10/2019 9:07 PM

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Work like hell to get them elected.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Make this a plan for ELECTION 2020!!!

Report: Flake wasn’t pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay


It is beginning to appear that Senate RINO Jeff Flake’s cowardly submission to Dems via alleged victims of sexual assault intimidation was staged. Flake may have even masterminded the whole stall tactic to keep Brett Kavanaugh from becoming a Justice on the Supreme Court.

 

Making Flake not a coward but rather a traitor to the Republican Party. TOO BAD THAT IS NOT A PROSECUTABLE CRIME!

 

For clarity on this RINO treason, here is the scoop posted at Legal Insurrection:

 

The plot to further stall the Kavanaugh nomination was hatched Thursday night in Senator Susan Collins’ (R-ME) office.  Also allegedly in attendance were Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Joe Manchin (D-WV).” 

 

Never trust a FLAKE!

Report: Flake wasn’t pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay

 

Posted by Fuzzy Slippers

September 30, 2018 12:00pm

Legal Insurrection

 

The “Flake-led rebellion” had “been building for nearly two weeks”

 

 

RINO Flake & Dem Coons

 

According to a report published by Politico, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) chose to appear pressured when, in fact, he masterminded the latest Kavanaugh delay. His subsequent media statements about his motivations and his media appearances in light of this report suggest Flake’s true motivations are far less pure than he would have us believe.

 

Flake’s focus on optics, on his raw ambition (for 2020?), and on the kind of “swamp creature” political maneuvering surrounding this planned reversal paints for the American people a hideous and disturbing portrait of the Arizona senator.

 

On Friday, Flake told the Atlantic that he insisted on the seventh FBI investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh because he was trying to save two institutions, the Senate and the Supreme Court.  During this interview, he also explained that he was deeply moved by Chris Coons’ pleas and decided that it was up to him, Jeff Flake, to “bring a little unity,” to stop our country “coming apart on this.” A move that apparently brought Coons near tears.

 

To follow up on his preening media tour, Flake showed up on 60 Minutes with Coons in tow.  CBS is revealing parts of this interview leading up to its Sunday night airing.

 

 

CBS News reports:

 

In an interview with “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley airing Sunday, Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, and Chris Coons, D-Delaware, discussed what they thought of Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony. Both senators were instrumental in delaying a floor vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination for one week while the FBI conducts an investigation into claims against him.

 

. . . . Coons said Kavanaugh’s reaction to questions posed by Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Amy Klobuchar about his drinking and behavior in high school “went over a line.”

 

“He was clearly belligerent, aggressive, angry. And I thought there was a tough dynamic there. As I watched him, part of me thought, ‘This is a man who believes that he did nothing wrong, and he’s completely unjustly accused. And he’s being railroaded. And he’s furious about it,’” said Coons.

 

Coons added that Kavanaugh’s more “partisan” responses made him question his fitness for the bench.

 

“There were some lines that he delivered that were sharper, more partisan, more, ‘This is the Clintons paying me back. This is a Democratic smear campaign,’ that I was surprised, struck to hear from a judicial nominee,” Coons said. “I’m not at all surprised to hear that from other colleagues in the committee or on television. But I was really struck that I thought his anger got the best of him. And he made a partisan argument that would’ve been best left to be made for his advocates and defenders on the committee.”

 

Flake said he “didn’t like” Kavanaugh’s “mention of the Clintons and whatnot,” but added, “I had to put myself in that spot. I think you give a little leeway there.”

 

Watch:

 

VIDEO: Jeff Flake, Chris Coons on Brett Kavanaugh’s “angry” Senate testimony

 

Flake’s positioning of himself as some sort of unifying force whose sole mission is to save the Senate and SCOTUS because he is driven by patriotic desires for national unity is unraveling, however.

 

The plot to further stall the Kavanaugh nomination was hatched Thursday night in Senator Susan Collins’ (R-ME) office.  Also allegedly in attendance were Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Joe Manchin (D-WV).  The four put their heads together and realized that as only Flake serves on the Judiciary Committee, they couldn’t pull off their devious plot without the assistance of another Senator serving on the committee.

 

They somehow landed on Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), and as noted above, Flake has been putting him to good use as a political prop and general useful idiot.

 

Politico reports:

 

In Susan Collins’ third-floor office in the Capitol, she and her Republican colleagues Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — joined by Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia — agreed they had the power to make or break Kavanaugh. And without settling on precise details, they decided to use their leverage to insist on a process that would allow them to reach a comfort level with Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and seek more information, rather than to kill his Supreme Court nomination outright, according to two people familiar with the meeting,

 

What resulted on Friday afternoon threw Washington into chaos and guaranteed another week of uncertainty and suspense surrounding Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Just hours after Flake endorsed Kavanaugh and seemed to put him on a path to the high court, the Arizonan said he first wanted a week-long FBI investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that the judge assaulted her. It was a victory for Democrats who’d been demanding such a probe, to no avail, and promises to define the retiring Flake’s legacy as someone who refused to let Kavanaugh get a vote while under a cloud of doubt.

 

. . . . But the Flake-led rebellion, however long it lasts, had been building for nearly two weeks.

 

Though Murkowski, Collins and Manchin all endorsed the FBI investigation on Friday, Flake needed another partner to pull off his move because none of them serves on the Judiciary Committee. So Flake, who’s been mocked for writing a book blasting the Trump presidency only to vote for his agenda, teamed up with a Democrat.

 

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) has spent his eight-year Senate career making earnest attempts to build relationships with Republicans, at times to liberals’ annoyance. He and Flake have taken trips around the world together as part of their duties. And on Friday afternoon, with a Supreme Court seat on the line, it all paid off.

 

Coons, who appears to be a hapless victim of Flake’s skullduggery, was then blindsided by Flake’s announcement that he was insisting on a further delay and investigation.

 

Politico continues:

 

Coons and Flake vacated the Judiciary Committee shortly before the panel was expected to vote to advance Kavanaugh, a seemingly innocuous moment that left onlookers increasingly bewildered as more senators joined them in the back room. They returned minutes later with a deal that forced GOP leaders to bow to the minority’s demand for an FBI probe, delaying the confirmation for as much as a week.

 

“I did not expect him to do this today,” Coons said of Flake, speaking for nearly everyone in official Washington.

 

Flake’s plot doesn’t stop there; it includes signalling [sic] to Senate Republicans that his intentions are not to bring down Kavanaugh. It’s unclear how true that is, but Politico continues:

 

In fact, Flake was playing a longer game. He said his statement supporting Kavanaugh was a signal to Republicans that he wasn’t joining the Democratic resistance and would show he wasn’t out to bring Kavanaugh’s nomination down.

 

“I hoped that would help provide leverage,” Flake recounted. But he needed some Democrats to endorse the FBI investigation, if not Kavanaugh’s nomination, to get fellow Republicans to agree.

 

Flake wanted to demonstrate “that the process is fair, at least, even if [Democrats are] not going to vote for” Kavanaugh, he added.

 

Flake wouldn’t say whether the protesters played a role in his decision. But he acknowledged he was in the middle of a “remarkable” moment and ticked off his “interactions with a lot of people, on the phone, email, text, walking around the Capitol, you name it.”

 

. . . . In his speech, little-noticed at the time, Coons suggested that someone with a “partisan agenda” might have leaked to the media Ford’s letter alleging the assault — harmonizing with what Republicans had been saying for days. Coons’ speech also repeated his request for an FBI investigation.

 

It was exactly what Flake was looking for.

 

Not long afterward, Coons and Flake repaired to a committee anteroom to hash out an agreement: Democrats would endorse a one-week FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, and Flake would use his leverage in the narrowly divided Senate and threaten to vote “no” on the floor if Republicans refused to go along.

 

Read the rest.

 

There is a somewhat disturbing revelation in the remaining Politico report.

 

Collins asked that Kavanaugh’s friend Mark Judge, whom Ford alleges was in the room during the alleged assault, sign a letter and send it to the committee rather than let his lawyer do it, according to two Republican senators. The letter was turned around in a matter of hours. And Murkowski had endorsed an FBI investigation days before, only to change her tune after meeting for more than a half-hour privately with McConnell.

 

We covered this letter which was submitted, the letter states, “under penalty of felony.”

 

Meanwhile, Flake—again with Coons in tow—was proclaimed a “hero” at Saturday’s Global Citizens Festival.

GOP: Enact MAGA Agenda or Disappear


John R. Houk

© August 31, 2017

 

I departed from the Republican Party after supporting a GOP candidate for President in 2012 I did not in the first place. THEN he; i.e. Mitt Romney, lost! Romney ran a weenie campaign refusing to point out Obama’s horrendous record and allowing Obama to get away with lying without confronting the situation. So I left the GOP.

 

Even though I stopped being a card-carrying Republican, I ended up voting for GOP candidates in my State. A Democrat was, is and always will be an unviable choice! This is the case especially after Obama has turned the Democratic Party into the Communist-Dem Party.

 

Then came Donald Trump. I like most people was amused but felt this is a guy that could never win, lacked Conservative credentials and I was uncertain of any dedication he had to the Christian faith. I was Cruzing with Ted until the math eliminated his campaign.

 

So, was I going to be stuck voting for The Donald? A guy I did not want as a candidate for POTUS? So I began to listen to Donald Trump.

 

Unlike Romney, Trump was willing to Muslim terrorists Radical Islamic terrorists and call Hillary Clinton a crook. The more the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) harangued Trump, more I began to like him and his populist “Make America Great Again.”

 

But I was still dissatisfied with the Republican Party. Boehner as the Speaker was ineffective after the GOP took the House in 2014.

 

Then 2016 came. Trump won POTUS and the GOP was the majority Party in both Houses of Congress. There was the appearance that Conservatives finally had an authentic voice and reversing the curse of Obama’s Change would be imminent.

 

I WAS WRONG!

 

After 8 years of saying what happen if the Republicans controlled government with a Conservative reawakening, little happened except Congressional resistance to Trump’s MAGA agenda.

 

AGAIN, the GOP had let me and many fellow Conservatives down. President Trump was and is actually making things happen as far as Executive action will take him. But nothing concrete to the promised MAGA will be forthcoming as long as Republicans in the Senate and Republicans in the House resist President Trump. These GOP resisters might as well join the Communist-Dem Party. EVERY political inaction by the Republicans is a vote for the status quo of the Communist-Dem Party to Socialize and disrupt Christian faith and morals in America. In essence – the continuation of the Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America.

 

My fellow Americans. Do you want to live in a nation whence political correctness and multiculturalism define how you – an American – must live according to what the government tells you how to believe and worship and speak?

 

Since the Republican legislators cannot get it together enough to resist and change the Dem fundamental transformation, it might be time to abandon the GOP and look for Trump activism in a political party willing to act as a monolith for Conservative principles.

 

This is why Brent Bozell’s editorial-opinion piece on the slow death of the Republican Party is a very important read.

The Slow Death of the Republican Party

The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide. 

 

By Brent Bozell

ACT for America

 

August 27, 2017

Breitbart Big Government

 

All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years.

 

Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it — there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

 

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!

 

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans’ cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.

 

That included federal spending on a level unmatched in human history resulting ultimately in a $19 trillion in debt we simply cannot pay, and with so many tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities that “infinity” is not far behind. One seventh of the economy was confiscated by the federal government with the passage of Obamacare. Our national borders were declared open and discussions over our national sovereignty closed. And to top it off, the Democrats all but declared themselves above the law.

 

The GOP harrumphed that this would not stand, by God! If only… if only America would vote them into the majority.

 

In 2009, the Tea Party was born. The Grand Old Party was rejuvenated. Happy days were here again.

 

Just one year later, the Republicans captured the House, and with that, the power of the purse. They now had the authority to stop the insane spending on so many obnoxious and wholly unnecessary ventures. They could end Obamacare simply by not funding it.

 

Instead, under the “leadership” of John Boehner, it did absolutely nothing. Why, if only we had the Senate! Then we could take on the President!

 

So in 2014, after spending hundreds of millions of campaign dollars running hundreds of thousands of television and radio ads pledging to end illegal immigration while repealing Obamacare “root and branch” (author: Mitch McConnell), they were given control of the Senate.

 

And within a month McConnell re-authorized both, along with every single other thing Harry Reid and Obama wanted for yet another year.

 

But that’s because we can’t do what we promised until we have the Presidency! The excuse was as predictable as summer heat in the Sahara.

 

In 2016, they were given that too.

 

They were given everything.

 

In January of this year, they formally controlled both houses of Congress and the executive branch. Every single thing they’d ever promised was now possible.

 

They now had the power to enact every single spending cut they’d ever solemnly pledged. All those wasteful programs designed to fill the liberal sandbox — PBS, NPR, Planned Parenthood, NEH and the rest of the alphabet soup; all the hundreds of billions of dollars in corporate welfare to multi-billion-dollar corporations; all of the hundreds of billions of dollars directed toward leftist social engineering — poof! All of it could come to an end with a stroke of a pen.

 

They now had the power to restore fiscal tax sanity too. Remember the flat tax? The fair tax? Slashing the highest corporate taxes in the world? Giving you a tax break? All of it could be done with a snap of the fingers.

 

Repeal Obamacare? Check. End illegal immigration? Check. Build the wall? Check.

 

Crush the Deep State? Done, by God, done!

 

There was not a damn thing the Democrats could do to stop them from draining the swamp.

 

Except the Republican leadership didn’t mean it. With the exception of the Freedom Caucus in the House, and literally a handful in the Senate, the rank-and-file didn’t either. Not one word of it.

 

The opportunity arose for the vote to repeal Obamacare, and after huffing and puffing, and huffing and puffing some more, the dust settled and socialized health care remains the law of the land, perhaps permanently.

 

The opportunity arose for tax reform, to enact the cuts America desperately needs. It was never a matter of if, it was a matter of how much. It is now mid-August and nothing, absolutely nothing has been accomplished — even attempted!

 

And now we face the final test: the debt ceiling. Will we or won’t we stop the spending madness? Will the Republicans enact the cuts they’ve promised, or will they now be the ones to kick the can, piling evermore trillions of dollars of debt on their own grandchildren?

 

By every indication that’s precisely what they plan to do. The signal has come from President Trump, from Speaker Ryan, and from Majority Leader McConnell. The debt ceiling will be raised and no fiscal sanity will be restored.

 

There is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Put them together. They are the swamp.

 

Just as Republicans have the power to enact the agenda they’ve pledged in toto, so too do they now own the federal government, in toto. It’s no longer Obamacare. It’s GOPcare. It’s no longer crazy liberal Democratic spending. It’s crazy liberal Republican spending. It’s no longer socialist Democratic Party taxation, it’s socialist Republican Party taxation. All the legislation authorizing all these programs, all the graft, all the waste, all the obscenity, all the immorality, and where Planned Parenthood is concerned, all the killing — all of it is now formally authored by the Republican Party.

 

Come the Congressional elections next year, and the presidential election in 2020, the Grand Old Party will once again bellow its hallowed promises. But this time it won’t work. This time there will be no straw men to blame. This time their voters will know those hallowed promises are not even hollow promises. They are lies.

 

These voters are tasting betrayal. They will not vote to swallow more vomit.

 

We are watching the GOP systematically committing suicide.

The Underground Against Trump Has Now Fully Surfaced

The Underground Against Trump Has Now Fully Surfaced

underground-secrets Sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

 

There is much work to do for this new administration.   Everyone expected that snowflakes and cupcakes would emerge to protest and grieve over Hillary’s loss.  They did and gloriously so to the point of drawing ridicule rather than sympathy.

Then, of course we had the usual Soros funded useful idiots blocking traffic, breaking windows, assaulting trump supporters, etc. All attention was being focused on them, perhaps by design so as to deflect from Obama’s underground, underhanded activities.  He was creating a more sinister operation—that of a shadow government meant solely to discredit and remove Trump. A few had sounded the clarion of such seditious activity in the making, but it had not become so blatantly obvious until recently.

The usual leftist arrogance did not take into account that the entire American public was not as stupid as had been portrayed. The clear mined citizenry, who dwell in reality land, can see through the curtain of lies by the politicians, leftist talking heads, and the MSM.  They continue to support Trump’s agenda, which is their own. They want America back. Those who want America to return to the Constitution and cherish The Bill of Rights are coming into action by organizing several pro Trump demonstrations in March.

That is a start, but unfortunately, it will probably take much more. The left is relentless and dangerous, and as Trump stated on the campaign trail, will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.

Those who are funding and driving this obviously seditious movement must be arrested, tried and given the proper penalty. Once the head of the snake is cut off it will eventually die. However, its directionless body will continue to thrash until its final death.  Rest assured the dead snake’s spawn will lay low and arise when the opportunity presents itself.

Obama’s hatred of America is most obvious to many. Unfortunately, many useful idiots are all too willing to crown him the Messiah. Those of us who see through him just want to crown him. His connections are many and for an excellent insight and background on this man, go here.

Excerpts from the articles below address the issues raised above.

Let’s take a look at some of his present activities:


On January 7, 2017, Daniel Greenfield published the article Obama Quietly Hiring New OFA Staff to Fight Trump.  in which he also referenced that back in November he had written Obama was plotting to use OFA to set the agenda. and that that he just might get away with it. Greenfield’s articles were most prescient and affirmed what many believed–Obama had no intention of going into the night quietly. more

Here are a few links specifying what OFA means to recruits:

Get Updates on OFA Training Programs

 

“Organizing for Action is training the next generation of progressive organizers as they work on important issues across the country. OFA’s hands-on fellowship and training programs provide the skills and tools necessary to empower grassroots organizers to make a difference in their communities.” more



Your voice can change a room. 

OFA is committed to mobilizing and training the next generation of progressive organizers and leaders, because real, lasting change doesn’t just happen on its own—it requires a program, it requires organizing, and it requires people like you.


With grassroots chapters in neighborhoods across the country, OFA volunteers are building this movement from the ground up, person to person, community by community—because democracy isn’t a spectator sport. more



Take a deep breath. Then take action.

 

It’s troubling to see years of progress and hard work on the line, but here’s how community organizers get through it: We take action.


Keep in mind that progress never comes served on a silver platter; we’ve always had to work for it. From marriage equality to climate change to health care reform, it’s taken years—sometimes decades—of sustained effort from a broad base of citizens to bring these issues to the forefront and persuade decision-makers to move us forward. So in that sense, this new political climate is no different. We’ve been here before. more

All of the above sounds innocuous, but make no mistake these are training camps for upending the American way–either by persuasion or by insurrection.

A financial coup for OFA:


Obama RELAUNCHES Efforts to “Fundamentally Change America”! by Hardworking1

 
While researching and writing my article last week about organizations like Black Lives Matter (BLM) getting a tax exempt IRS 501(c)3 designation I discovered that the Obama Administration went even farther than that with some liberal/progressive organization’s tax exempt designations!  Obama’s “Organizing for Action” (OFA) got a 501(c)4 designation, This is even more “troubling” than BLM getting the tax exempt designation, 501(c)3, because the OFA tax exempt designation 501(c)4 allows organizations to “engage in substantial lobbying activities”!  …

Why did I say that OFA having this tax exempt designation is “troubling”?  All you have to do is look at OFA’s history to answer that question. OFA is an organization that evolved out of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, which evolved out of “Organizing for America”, which was part of Obama’s 2008 election campaign. OFA was formed and is operated by former Obama campaign and administration staff. It is an organization whose “Mission Statement” is to fulfill Obama’s dream of “Fundamentally Changing America”, which is to ultimately make America part of George Soros’ “one world order”.


How did a group like OFA get a tax exempt designation like this?  As you can see from the information above there is ample opportunity for racist and corrupt IRS or DOJ personnel to make a BIASED DECISION regarding a group’s eligibility for tax exempt designation, or if they can keep their tax exempt designation if they already have one. more

Disruption:

AMAC Calls for Peaceful Opposition to Violent Protesters Bent on Anarchy

WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 17 – “Anti-government protesters seek to disrupt the work of our nation’s elected officials on a scale never seen before,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.  “And former President Obama says he approves,”

In fact, Weber notes, 10 days after he left office Mr. Obama’s spokesman issued a statement saying, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,”


The AMAC chief points to the fact that the protesters appear to be well organized, earning the moniker, Obama’s Army.  That’s how the New York Times described the phenomenon. more

Since early 2016 (according to globalists and the mainstream publications featuring their opinions), there has been a rising tide of nationalists and “populists” in western nations.  This sudden surge in “populism” is inexorably tied to the Brexit movement and the support for candidates like Donald Trump.  Populism will overrun the existing “stability” of globalism and cause severe economic crisis in numerous countries.  It finds its roots in the “less educated” portions of the population, as well as in older generations that think they have something to lose if globalism succeeds.  It is also driven by an “irrational fear” of economic change, global interdependence and multiculturalism.  Populists are predominantly naive and desperate for “strongmen” leaders to fight for them.  Some of them are motivated by self interest, while others are motivated by racism.

 
It is well worth the read to go here for the entire article.

Traitors within:


In her article  Flynn, Trump, and Countering The Four Horsemen of the Liberal Apocalypse, Susan Swift of Politichicks discusses the political assassination of Flynn by the shadow government set up by Trump’s predecessor.

Eli Lake called it a political assassination.  The New York Times steadfastly maintains there is “no evidence” that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians to influence the election.  But that didn’t stop the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse from taking down General Micheal [sic] Flynn.

Who are the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse? The Media, the Establishment RINOs, Elected Democrats, and Obama’s shadowy unelected bureaucrat operatives embedded within the DeepState.   These Four Horsemen continue to work in coordination to weaken and delegitimize President Trump’s election triumph over of Hillary Clinton.  Former President Barrack Obama appears to be leading the Horsemen’s charge.


Author Ed Klein told Pete Hegseth on Fox and Friends Weekend in December that former President “Barack Obama is setting up a shadow government in Washington DC to undermine President Trump after Inauguration Day.”

  
Is this not sedition? entire article 



A very gloomy view of what is to come:

 
Paul Craig Roberts writes, “The effort of Americans to bring govt back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state”

 

Former National Security Agency (NSA) spy John Schindler tweeted on Twitter that a senior intelligence community colleague sent him an email stating that the deep state had declared nuclear war on Trump and that “He will die in jail.”


It is possible that this will be the case…

Those at work overturning the 2016 presidential election are so confident of their success that they publicly declare their preference for coup over democracy. The Zionist neoconservative warmonger Bill Kristol has expressed his preference for a deep state coup over democratically elected President Trump.


The effort of the American people to bring government back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state.


Chris Hedges argument that revolution is the only way that Americans can reclaim their country continues to gain credibility.


The words that doomed Trump when he declared war before he had his army assembled:


“There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.”

  
Truer words were never spoken   entire article



Bryan Dean Wright pens,  I’m a Democrat (and ex-CIA) but the spies plotting against Trump are out of control.

Over the past few months, America has lurched from partisan warfare to the cliffs of an existential crisis.

Multiple reports show that my former colleagues in the intelligence community have decided that they must leak or withhold classified information due to unsettling connections between President Trump and the Russian Government.


Said an intelligence officer: “I know what’s best for foreign policy and national security
… And I’m going to act on that.

Some of us might applaud this man, including a few of my fellow Democrats. In their minds, this is a case of Mr. Smith Goes to Langley to do battle against a corrupt President Trump.


One small problem. The intelligence officer quoted above was actually Aldrich Ames, a CIA traitor whose crime of treason in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in the compromise of more than 100 assets. Many were tortured and executed as a result.


Ames’ flawed logic is eerily similar to that of his present-day colleagues who are engaged in a shadow war with their commander in chief. They, too, have decided that their superior judgment is more important than following the law.   continue




The public catching on is this nation’s only hope:
Again, Daniel Greenfield:  Why the Media’s Trump Lie Machine is Failing


Every five minutes the many mouths of the media broadcast, type, post and shriek that President Donald J. Trump is a liar. After months of this treatment, more voters find him truthful than them.


49% of voters believe that Trump and his people are telling the truth. Only 39% believe that the media is.

The media’s war on President Trump isn’t hurting him. It is destroying the media’s own credibility.


After Trump’s win, the media came to the conclusion that its biased attacks on him had been too subtle and understated to connect with the “dumb” voters. So it decided to be far more overt about its smears.

The New York Times, which used to be the best at disguising its biases in the omnipotent voice of professional journalism, called President Trump a liar in its headlines.  The media cheered this descent into naked partisanship by the paper of record. But it didn’t hurt Trump. It hurt the Times.

Headlines blasting President Trump as a “liar” are easy enough to find on the Internet. The New York Times derives much of its influence from its appearance of serious professionalism.  Calling Trump names made it hard to distinguish the New York Times from the Huffington Post. …


Truth is not who you pretend to be. It’s who you are…

…The media wanted the authority to determining who was lying without the responsibility of telling the truth. As the media made its partisan bias more obvious, it lost the credibility it needed. The more the media called President Trump a liar, the more the public believed that the media was lying. continue

Patriots, be prepared. Events can go many different ways, all out civil war, a faux peace, or a leftist temporary retreat waiting for another opportunity.  Much depends not only upon the Trump administration’s ability to manage the chaos, but upon the citizens who support him as well.

2016 AND OUR RENDEZVOUS WITH DESTINY


After reading the below Danny Jeffrey cross post it will become apparent the reason for beginning blog post with the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

VIDEO: BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC – Johnny Cash

 

Danny Jeffrey is one of my favorite bloggers. I don’t always share his pessimistic outlook for America, but for those who read him you have to admit he is correct in predictions to date more often than incorrect.

In Danny’s latest blog post he looks back over the last few years – interestingly the last few years of Obama. Danny sets the stage for more dire predictions by pointing out his success rate in the past then hits his American readers in the gut for what he believes is the stark truth of our future that only a revival of the old American sense of Liberty will see if we cease to exist in relevance or rise from the ashes of near national oblivion.

Here is a quote from his post “2016 AND OUR RENDEZVOUS WITH DESTINY’ that should whet your appetite to experience this gut check:

2016 and our rendezvous with destiny is now an undeniable event and that destiny can be attributed to many causes: Part of the cause is quite naturally the unrelenting assault by the Globalists, our sellout political leaders and courts, our churches defecting to the enemy camp in pursuit of easy cash, our growing welfare state, militant racists, and the list goes on. But, I put the bulk of the problem right where it belongs; in the laps of our apathetic, under informed citizens.

A GOOD DAY TO DIE…

… It dates back to the Lakota Sioux before Custer and The Little Big Horn. Those people saw their nation, their very way of life, under attack from the white man and knew that they faced a do or die situation such as we find ourselves in today.

The major difference between the Lakota and the 21st century American is that the Sioux were willing to die in defense of their way of life and the futures of their offspring. We, on the other hand, face the future waiting for the next election and shunning any possibility of blood shed, and this is what our modern day patriots call fighting for freedom.

Now here’s the rest of the story.

2016 AND OUR RENDEZVOUS WITH DESTINY

 

By Danny Jeffrey

January 2, 2016 4:57 AM

Fix Bayonets:

Seeking answers to today’s issues.

I have not written an essay since October of 2015 when a problem with my heart reminded me that it was time to slow down. If I were granted one wish that I knew would come true it would be that I live long enough to see the American people rise in protest, armed I might add, and be prepared to engage the forces of evil. To this end I have slowed my efforts to warn of coming events as those with the wisdom to understand are already making preparations, and sad to say, the others simply do not matter.

I have spent many years in the effort to understand the Globalist agenda, studying their history, grasping the unrelenting evil that they are employing against us, and predicting their future attacks.

In 2010 I wrote that gaining the House of Representatives would do nothing as the newly elected members of the GOP would promptly sell us out. In 2012 I told all that RINO Mitt Romney was a shill whose only purpose was to make certain that Obama was reelected. Then in 2014 I warned that retaking the Senate would accomplish nothing that we sought. I also promised that the Globalist agenda would quicken in 2015 and quicken still more in 2016. ‘Late 2015 or early 2016’ was my exact words in predicting the onset of America’s death spiral.

Now the entire west is being flooded with Muslims, militant blacks are becoming more aggressive, and the open border is being crossed in record breaking numbers in a cold part of the year when illegal crossings typically slow down.

2016 and our rendezvous with destiny is now an undeniable event and that destiny can be attributed to many causes: Part of the cause is quite naturally the unrelenting assault by the Globalists, our sellout political leaders and courts, our churches defecting to the enemy camp in pursuit of easy cash, our growing welfare state, militant racists, and the list goes on. But, I put the bulk of the problem right where it belongs; in the laps of our apathetic, under informed citizens.

Five plus years ago I was warning that we were heading for civil war and was regarded by most to be on the lunatic fringe. The only reason that I had any readers at all was that I always provided links from reliable sources and logic from my own mind. Now that dreaded term ‘Civil War’ is becoming common place, Texas has just passed an open carry law, Black Friday broke all time records for gun purchases, and the administration is hell bent on passing as many laws as possible before the actual shooting starts.

Long term readers are well aware that I have long predicted that there would be no election at all in 2016 and it the odd event there is it would be known by all in advance that such an election would be but a farce to appease the hopeful and buy more time for the Globalists to get all of their forces in place. Personally I reject that final proposition as they can trigger this top down/bottom up revolution any time that they want with a financial crash.

Think, if you will, what would happen overnight on the first day of any given month should the government put an end to welfare, EBT cards and such and blamed it on the Republican Party that officially ‘controls’ Congress.

There would be hell to pay, and that hell would take the form of terrorism nationwide, of rioters and looters burning our cities, of the ‘minorities’ we so blindly serve, that are on the verge of outnumbering the people who created the greatest nation on Earth.

A GOOD DAY TO DIE…

Most would see that last line and think of Klingons and Star Trek, but ‘A good day to die’ did not originate on our TVs. It dates back to the Lakota Sioux before Custer and The Little Big Horn. Those people saw their nation, their very way of life, under attack from the white man and knew that they faced a do or die situation such as we find ourselves in today.

The major difference between the Lakota and the 21st century American is that the Sioux were willing to die in defense of their way of life and the futures of their offspring. We, on the other hand, face the future waiting for the next election and shunning any possibility of blood shed, and this is what our modern day patriots call fighting for freedom.

Vote em Out…The battle cry of a people gone soft; the rallying cry of a people who know not history and most certainly do not want to know the future; the trembling voice of a people who would rather compromise than fight; the apologetic echo of a craven people that have compromised for so long they cannot imagine that it may well be a good day to die.

Oh those many years ago when I began writing on the internet, foolishly believing that I could light a fire in the souls of those who live in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. I had so much to learn. Today we are no longer free, and the only bravery I see is when our people, with a degree of self satisfaction and blind optimism, vote for their chosen candidate, knowing full well that the Soros owned and operated voting machines will produce the prearranged winner, selected by the Globalist elites.

On second thought, that is not bravery but a self congratulatory effort at those mired in their own little world of escapism, denial, and fantasy.

As Joseph Stalin said “It not the people who vote that matter….it’s the people who count the votes that matter.”

I have no doubt that 2016 will go down in history as the year America fell. The civil war I speak of will not begin until that fall has taken place. One or more 911 events will occur, Anarchy and Chaos will ensue, terrorism will shake America to her very core, and martial law will be declared. Then and only then will we find out if bravery still exists in America.

A GOOD DAY TO DIE…

For the liberal, the self serving, the ignorant, and the coward, there is never a good day to die. These people are so fearful that they want to control everything we eat, drink, breathe, and smoke. In believing their own superiority they are even convinced that they and their superior thinking should control the climate. As for me, I have come to terms with my own mortality long ago and today the only thing I fear is for the future of this nation, this world, and our offspring.

I can only hope that when I leave this world it will be fighting evil. It would be so meaningless to die of old age.

I shall close this effort with a thought that has long bothered me, and that is how the liberals managed to dilute and alter the meaning of what is perhaps the greatest song ever written about America; The Battle Hymn Of The Republic. As a child I learned and loved that song. In it there is one line that states “As he died to make men holy let us die to make men free.” Today’s liberals and their cowardly ways altered that great piece of patriotic music to read “As he died to make men holy let us live to make men free.”

One word; one concept; one thought that borders on all that is noble was changed and with it the outlook of what once was America died.

Are Trump’s Polls the Result of Americans Waking UP?


John R. Houk

© August 26, 2015

Donald Trump is surging in the polls for the GOP nomination for President. Many pundits believe the rising polls is a temporary phenomenon that will change as the GOP nominee seekers dwindle down.

On a personal level I do not view Trump as an authentic Conservative representing the Republican base in less government and Conservative social issues. But what I do view Trump as is a candidate that is not spewing a political line. He is saying things that resonate with the Republican base but isn’t necessarily something that is doable, at least not on a grand scale.

Republican Conservatives want a guy that takes serious shots at undoing Obamination and confronting the GOP Establishment. That places a target on Trump from both Leftist Dems, RINOs and Republican Establishment nominal Conservatives. The RINOs and Establishment do not want Conservative change they want a status quo that enables political control.

Then enters Trump: A guy that is a billionaire, that his used to calling the shots even if he steps on toes, not particularly tied to Special Interest lobbyists because he was his own special interest and not willing to back off from criticism from a Trump-like bold and often outlandish statement.

Trump is leading the pack because he is providing a public image of not being asleep at the wheel that moves America in a correct forward manner. Take note I said forward and NOT Progressive.

You might ask, “Are you then endorsing Trump?”

Nope. I still don’t think he is the best candidate to reverse the Obama curse on America. HOWEVER if by some miracle Trump pulls off a GOP nomination, I WILL vote for him. BUT I do pray that the right candidate takes note of Trump’s current Republican voter populism and begins to employ it. I believe that will be the recipe to smack down whoever Leftwing Democrat that Party sets up as a nominee.

Now these thoughts were inspired by a video from the Rutherford Institute of John W. Whitehead talking about American voters being brainwashed a la the 1988 John Carpenter flick “They Live”. Whitehead presents a pretty good case that American voters are sleepwalking through a political system pretending to be a Representative Democratic Republic but in actuality reside in a Big Brother State doing what is told to be believed rather than thinking for their selves.

Here’s a “They Live” trailer (a little over 3 minutes)

For those of you interested in late ‘80s Sci-Fi here’s the full length on Youtube.

I found the Whitehead video in a Rutherford Institute email alert. Here’s how I’m going to disseminate the cross post. I’m going with the text of the email alert, followed by Whitehead’s roughly eight minute wake-up call video and ending this post with an August 4th more in depth article by Whitehead entitled “They Live, We Sleep: A Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy”.

They Live, We Sleep: A Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy

By John W. Whitehead

August 04, 2015

Rutherford Institute

“You see them on the street. You watch them on TV. You might even vote for one this fall. You think they’re people just like you. You’re wrong. Dead wrong.”—They Live

We’re living in two worlds, you and I.

There’s the world we see (or are made to see) and then there’s the one we sense (and occasionally catch a glimpse of), the latter of which is a far cry from the propaganda-driven reality manufactured by the government and its corporate sponsors, including the media.

Indeed, what most Americans perceive as life in America—privileged, progressive and free—is a far cry from reality, where economic inequality is growing, real agendas and real power are buried beneath layers of Orwellian doublespeak and corporate obfuscation, and “freedom,” such that it is, is meted out in small, legalistic doses by militarized police armed to the teeth.

All is not as it seems.

This is the premise of John Carpenter’s film They Live (1988), in which two migrant workers discover that the world’s population is actually being controlled and exploited by aliens working in partnership with an oligarchic elite. All the while, the populace—blissfully unaware of the real agenda at work in their lives—has been lulled into complacency, indoctrinated into compliance, bombarded with media distractions, and hypnotized by subliminal messages beamed out of television and various electronic devices, billboards and the like.

It is only when homeless drifter John Nada (played to the hilt by the late Roddy Piper) discovers a pair of doctored sunglasses—Hoffman lenses—that Nada sees what lies beneath the elite’s fabricated reality: control and bondage.

When viewed through the lens of truth, the elite, who appear human until stripped of their disguises, are shown to be monsters who have enslaved the citizenry in order to prey on them. Likewise, billboards blare out hidden, authoritative messages: a bikini-clad woman in one ad is actually ordering viewers to “MARRY AND REPRODUCE.” Magazine racks scream “CONSUME” and “OBEY.” A wad of dollar bills in a vendor’s hand proclaims, “THIS IS YOUR GOD.”

When viewed through Nada’s Hoffman lenses, some of the other hidden messages being drummed into the people’s subconscious include: NO INDEPENDENT THOUGHT, CONFORM, SUBMIT, STAY ASLEEP, BUY, WATCH TV, NO IMAGINATION, and DO NOT QUESTION AUTHORITY.

This indoctrination campaign engineered by the elite in They Live is painfully familiar to anyone who has studied the decline of American culture. A citizenry that does not think for themselves, obeys without question, is submissive, does not challenge authority, does not think outside the box, and is content to sit back and be entertained is a citizenry that can be easily controlled.

In this way, the subtle message of They Live provides an apt analogy of our own distorted vision of life in the American police state, what philosopher Slavoj Žižek refers to as dictatorship in democracy, “the invisible order which sustains your apparent freedom.”

We’re being fed a series of carefully contrived fictions that bear no resemblance to reality. The powers-that-be want us to feel threatened by forces beyond our control (terrorists, shooters, bombers). They want us afraid and dependent on the government and its militarized armies for our safety and well-being. They want us distrustful of each other, divided by our prejudices, and at each other’s throats. Most of all, they want us to continue to march in lockstep with their dictates.

Tune out the government’s attempts to distract, divert and befuddle us and tune into what’s really going on in this country, and you’ll run headlong into an unmistakable, unpalatable truth: the moneyed elite who rule us view us as expendable resources to be used, abused and discarded.

In fact, a 2014 study conducted by Princeton and Northwestern University concluded that the U.S. government does not represent the majority of American citizens. Instead, the study found that the government is ruled by the rich and powerful, or the so-called “economic elite.” Moreover, the researchers concluded that policies enacted by this governmental elite nearly always favor special interests and lobbying groups.

In other words, we are being ruled by an oligarchy disguised as a democracy, and arguably on our way towards fascism—a form of government where private corporate interests rule, money calls the shots, and the people are seen as mere subjects to be controlled.

Consider this: it is estimated that the 2016 presidential election could cost as much as $5 billion, more than double what was spent getting Obama re-elected in 2012.

Not only do you have to be rich—or beholden to the rich—to get elected these days, but getting elected is also a surefire way to get rich. As CBS News reports, “Once in office, members of Congress enjoy access to connections and information they can use to increase their wealth, in ways that are unparalleled in the private sector. And once politicians leave office, their connections allow them to profit even further.”

In denouncing this blatant corruption of America’s political system, former president Jimmy Carter blasted the process of getting elected—to the White House, governor’s mansion, Congress or state legislatures—as “unlimited political bribery… a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over.”

Rest assured that when and if fascism finally takes hold in America, the basic forms of government will remain. As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, fascism will appear to be friendly. The legislators will be in session. There will be elections, and the news media will continue to cover the entertainment and political trivia. Consent of the governed, however, will no longer apply. Actual control will have finally passed to the oligarchic elite controlling the government behind the scenes.

By creating the illusion that it preserves democratic traditions, fascism creeps slowly until it consumes the political system. And in times of “crisis,” expediency is upheld as the central principle—that is, in order to keep us safe and secure, the government must militarize the police, strip us of basic constitutional rights, criminalize virtually every form of behavior, and build enough private prisons to house all of us nonviolent criminals.

Clearly, we are now ruled by an oligarchic elite of governmental and corporate interests. We have moved into “corporatism” (favored by Benito Mussolini), which is a halfway point on the road to full-blown fascism.

Vast sectors of the economy, government and politics are managed by private business concerns, otherwise referred to as “privatization” by various government politicians. Just study modern government policies. “Every industry is regulated. Every profession is classified and organized,” writes economic analyst Jeffrey Tucker. “Every good or service is taxed. Endless debt accumulation is preserved. Immense doesn’t begin to describe the bureaucracy. Military preparedness never stops, and war with some evil foreign foe, remains a daily prospect.”

In other words, the government in America today does whatever it wants.

Corporatism is where the few moneyed interests—not elected by the citizenry—rule over the many. In this way, it is not a democracy or a republican form of government, which is what the American government was established to be. It is a top-down form of government and one which has a terrifying history typified by the developments that occurred in totalitarian regimes of the past: police states where everyone is watched and spied on, rounded up for minor infractions by government agents, placed under police control, and placed in detention (a.k.a. concentration) camps.

For the final hammer of fascism to fall, it will require the most crucial ingredient: the majority of the people will have to agree that it’s not only expedient but necessary. But why would a people agree to such an oppressive regime? The answer is the same in every age: fear.

Fear makes people stupid.

Fear is the method most often used by politicians to increase the power of government. And, as most social commentators recognize, an atmosphere of fear permeates modern America: fear of terrorism, fear of the police, fear of our neighbors and so on.

The propaganda of fear has been used quite effectively by those who want to gain control, and it is working on the American populace.

Despite the fact that we are 17,600 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack; 11,000 times more likely to die from an airplane accident than from a terrorist plot involving an airplane; 1,048 times more likely to die from a car accident than a terrorist attack, and 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist, we have handed over control of our lives to government officials who treat us as a means to an end—the source of money and power.

We have allowed ourselves to become fearful, controlled, pacified zombies.

In this regard, we’re not so different from the oppressed citizens in They Live. Most everyone keeps their heads down these days while staring zombie-like into an electronic screen, even when they’re crossing the street. Families sit in restaurants with their heads down, separated by their screen devices and unaware of what’s going on around them. Young people especially seem dominated by the devices they hold in their hands, oblivious to the fact that they can simply push a button, turn the thing off and walk away.

Indeed, there is no larger group activity than that connected with those who watch screens—that is, television, lap tops, personal computers, cell phones and so on. In fact, a Nielsen study reports that American screen viewing is at an all-time high. For example, the average American watches approximately 151 hours of television per month.

The question, of course, is what effect does such screen consumption have on one’s mind?

Psychologically it is similar to drug addiction. Researchers found that “almost immediately after turning on the TV, subjects reported feeling more relaxed, and because this occurs so quickly and the tension returns so rapidly after the TV is turned off, people are conditioned to associate TV viewing with a lack of tension.” Research also shows that regardless of the programming, viewers’ brain waves slow down, thus transforming them into a more passive, nonresistant state.

Historically, television has been used by those in authority to quiet discontent and pacify disruptive people. “Faced with severe overcrowding and limited budgets for rehabilitation and counseling, more and more prison officials are using TV to keep inmates quiet,” according to Newsweek.

Given that the majority of what Americans watch on television is provided through channels controlled by six mega corporations, what we watch is now controlled by a corporate elite and, if that elite needs to foster a particular viewpoint or pacify its viewers, it can do so on a large scale.

If we’re watching, we’re not doing.

The powers-that-be understand this. As television journalist Edward R. Murrow warned in a 1958 speech:

We are currently wealthy, fat, comfortable and complacent. We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse, and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it, and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.

This brings me back to They Live, in which the real zombies are not the aliens calling the shots but the populace who are content to remain controlled.

When all is said and done, the world of They Live is not so different from our own. As one of the characters points out, “The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are nonexistent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent to ourselves, to others. We are focused only on our own gain.”

We, too, are focused only on our own pleasures, prejudices and gains. Our poor and underclasses are also growing. Racial injustice is growing. Human rights is nearly nonexistent. We too have been lulled into a trance, indifferent to others.

Oblivious to what lies ahead, we’ve been manipulated into believing that if we continue to consume, obey, and have faith, things will work out. But that’s never been true of emerging regimes. And by the time we feel the hammer coming down upon us, it will be too late.

USA in Trouble when SCOTUS Ignores Constitution


John R. Houk

© June 26, 2015

Yesterday SCOTUS ruled Obamacare subsidies are just fine. Remarkably Chief Justice John Roberts joined four Leftists and a Centrist to pat Barack Hussein Obama to tell him it was just fine to keep screwing up America.

TODAY SCOTUS ruled that same-sex marriage must be legal in ALL 50 States in the Union based on the 14th Amendment that assured former slaves as equal citizens with equal rights. I wonder if those Northern States that ensured Freedom for Black-Americans would think that the 14th Amendment’s intent would be used to justify the ungodly abomination of homosexual marriage. This time Chief Justice Roberts went with the godly side but was a part of four losing Justices that lost out to four thumbing their noses Leftist Justices and Centrist Justice Anthony Kennedy placed the USA in a dangerous spiritual position in the eyes of God Almighty.

Late last night Robert Smith submitted a post expressing his displeasure with how the three constitutional Branches of our Federal government are forsaking the Constitution. Smith concludes that the unconstitutional government movement will lead to one of two actions: 1) America’s Constitution gets a reset button of Original Intent at the ballot box. 2) Barring the peaceful action of the ballot box, a Revolutionary War-style rebellion will occur with the Americans that are tired of the tyranny of the ungodly Left.

After the Robert Smith post I’m going to cross post the informative story I find most relevant to the Sodomizing of America by five ungodly Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Degrading OUR Constitution

By Robert G. Smith

Sent: 6/25/2015 11:07 PM

The Constitution is being ripped asunder by the POTUS and the SCOTUS. The POTUS is determined to destroy our country. This is so the Transnational Bankers, Global Politicians and Islamists will have an easier task of subjugating the people of our country and making them accept a NWO and Islam as the one true religion.

In the SCOTUS you have Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who believes the Constitution has out lived its usefulness. [And we have] one Elena Kagan, who believes the Constitution should be supplemented by Sharia Law. And Chief Justice John Roberts who perceives himself as a member of the House of Representatives.

It is becoming clear that the American People must take matters into their own hands. Hopefully by the ballot box, but if necessary by armed intervention.

They have taken the most sought after health care in the world, emasculated it and made it so costly no one can afford it. The number of citizens who did not have health care prior to O-Bama Care was so small they could have been provided governmental health care paid for, many times over, by the billions already spent by O-Bama Care.

It makes me heartsick to see the country and the Constitution I fought for in three wars so maligned so corrupted by those who have never turned a finger to protect our country and our way of life. This must be corrected. How? I do not have the answers, but I hope it is by the ballots and not the bullets.

We have a Congress that is doing very little to better the situation. They must be replaced by true Conservatives, those who truly love our country.

Most of our voters do not comprehend the serious nature of the problems facing our country today. They are lackadaisical when it comes to checking the backgrounds of those we choose to represent us. They continue to send to Congress people who have only their own selfish interests in mind. This must be stopped!!

To vote for a Liberal only ensures the continuation of the situation we now have. The liberals must be replaced by true Conservatives and not by the many RINOs – Republican In Name Only – that we now have serving in Congress; i.e. Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker, and the list goes on.

I hope to see a peaceful change in the direction our country is following but I do hope to see a change!!!!

Symposium: Judicial activism on marriage causes harm: What does the future hold?

By Ryan Anderson

June 26th, 2015 4:28 pm

SCOTUSblog

Ryan T. Anderson is the William E. Simon Senior Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation and the author of the forthcoming book Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom. His amicus brief was cited in Justice Clarence Thomas’s dissenting opinion in Obergefell.

As the four dissenting opinions make abundantly clear, today’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges had nothing to do with the Constitution. This ruling is perhaps as clear of an example of judicial activism as any we have seen in recent years – or are likely (hopefully) to see in the future. The majority of the Court simply replaced the people’s opinion about what marriage is with its own. Nothing in the Constitution supplies an answer to the question What Is Marriage? And none of the purported rationales can justify the Court redefining marriage everywhere.

This ruling will likely cause harm to the body politic: to constitutional democratic self-government, to marriage itself, to civil harmony, and to religious liberty. Because of space constraints, I highlight these four harms with quotations solely from Chief Justice John Roberts’s dissent. (Needless to say, they could be amplified with quotations from Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito.)

First, the ruling will cause harm to constitutional democratic self-government. As Roberts notes, “this Court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be. The people who ratified the Constitution authorized courts to exercise ‘neither force nor will but merely judgment.’” Roberts continues:

Although the policy arguments for extending marriage to same-sex couples may be compelling, the legal argu­ments for requiring such an extension are not. The fun­damental right to marry does not include a right to make a State change its definition of marriage. And a State’s decision to maintain the meaning of marriage that has persisted in every culture throughout human history can hardly be called irrational. In short, our Constitution does not enact any one theory of marriage. The people of a State are free to expand marriage to include same-sex couples, or to retain the historic definition.

Indeed, Roberts repeatedly argues that in Obergefell the Court has simply Lochner-ized – “the majority’s ap­proach has no basis in principle or tradition, except for the unprincipled tradition of judicial policymaking that char­acterized discredited decisions such as Lochner v. New York.”

Second, the ruling will cause harm to marriage itself. Roberts notes that marriage “arose in the nature of things to meet a vital need: ensuring that children are conceived by a mother and father committed to raising them in the stable conditions of a lifelong relationship.” But redefining marriage makes it more about the romantic desires of the consenting adults involved than about the needs or the rights of children involved to a relationship with their mother and father.

Indeed, the judicial redefinition of marriage to exclude the marital norm of male-female sexual complementarity raises the question of what other marital norms may be excluded. Roberts writes: “One immediate question invited by the majority’s posi­tion is whether States may retain the definition of mar­riage as a union of two people.” Roberts continues:

Although the majority randomly inserts the adjective “two” in various places, it offers no reason at all why the two-person element of the core definition of mar­riage may be preserved while the man-woman element may not. Indeed, from the standpoint of history and tradi­tion, a leap from opposite-sex marriage to same-sex mar­riage is much greater than one from a two-person union to plural unions, which have deep roots in some cultures around the world. If the majority is willing to take the big leap, it is hard to see how it can say no to the shorter one.

It is striking how much of the majority’s reasoning would apply with equal force to the claim of a fundamental right to plural marriage. If “[t]here is dignity in the bond between two men or two women who seek to marry and in their autonomy to make such profound choices,” why would there be any less dignity in the bond be­tween three people who, in exercising their autonomy, seek to make the profound choice to marry? If a same-sex couple has the constitutional right to marry because their children would otherwise “suffer the stigma of knowing their families are somehow lesser,” why wouldn’t the same reasoning apply to a family of three or more persons raising children? If not having the oppor­tunity to marry “serves to disrespect and subordinate” gay and lesbian couples, why wouldn’t the same “imposition of this disability,” serve to disrespect and subor­dinate people who find fulfillment in polyamorous rela­tionships?

For marriage policy to serve the common good it must reflect the truth that marriage unites a man and a woman as husband and wife so that children will have both a mother and a father. Marriage is based on the anthropological truth that men and woman are distinct and complementary, the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the social reality that children deserve a mother and a father.

Redefining marriage to make it a genderless institution fundamentally changes marriage: It makes the relationship more about the desires of adults than about the needs – or rights – of children. It teaches the lie that mothers and fathers are interchangeable.

Third, the ruling will cause harm to civil harmony. When fundamental policy changes are made by Court rulings that have no basis in the Constitution, it makes change harder to accept – because it casts doubt on the change itself. As Chief Justice Roberts points out,

Supporters of same-sex marriage have achieved considerable success persuading their fellow citizens—through the democratic process—to adopt their view. That ends today. Five lawyers have closed the debate and enacted their own vision of marriage as a matter of constitutional law. Stealing this issue from the people will for many cast a cloud over same-sex mar­riage, making a dramatic social change that much more difficult to accept.

Yet in the middle of such a robust debate, the Court “seizes for itself a ques­tion the Constitution leaves to the people, at a time when the people are engaged in a vibrant debate on that ques­tion. And it answers that question based not on neutral principles of constitutional law, but on its own ‘under­standing of what freedom is and must become.’” This will make the redefinition of marriage less accepted – more contested – in the United States. Roberts elaborates:

The Court’s accumulation of power does not occur in a vacuum. It comes at the expense of the people. And they know it. Here and abroad, people are in the midst of a serious and thoughtful public debate on the issue of same-sex marriage. … This delib­erative process is making people take seriously questions that they may not have even regarded as questions before.

When decisions are reached through democratic means, some people will inevitably be disappointed with the re­sults. But those whose views do not prevail at least know that they have had their say, and accordingly are—in the tradition of our political culture—reconciled to the result of a fair and honest debate.

But today the Court puts a stop to all that.

The Court had no reason – no basis in the Constitution – to short-circuit the democratic process. No reason to put a stop to the national discussion we were having about the future of marriage. Roberts continues, “There will be consequences to shutting down the political process on an issue of such profound public significance. Closing debate tends to close minds. People denied a voice are less likely to accept the ruling of a court on an issue that does not seem to be the sort of thing courts usually decide.” Just so.

Fourth, the ruling will cause harm to religious liberty. As Roberts notes, the decision “creates serious questions about religious liberty. Many good and decent people oppose same-sex marriage as a tenet of faith, and their freedom to exercise religion is—unlike the right imagined by the majority—actually spelled out in the Constitution.” When marriage was redefined democratically, citizens could accompany it with religious liberty protections, but “the majority’s decision imposing same-sex marriage cannot, of course, create any such accommo­dations.”

Most alarmingly, the majority opinion never discusses the free exercise of religion. Roberts notes, “The majority graciously suggests that religious believers may continue to ‘advocate’ and ‘teach their views of marriage. The First Amendment guarantees, however, the freedom to ‘exercise’ religion. Ominously, that is not a word the majority uses.”

Indeed, as Roberts notes, “Unfortunately, people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today.” Why can they take no comfort? Because “the most discouraging aspect of today’s decision is the extent to which the majority feels compelled to sully those on the other side of the debate.” Over and over and over again, the majority attacks the Americans who stand for marriage as the union of husband and wife. And as Robert notes, “These apparent assaults on the character of fair minded people will have an effect, in society and in court. Moreover, they are entirely gratuitous.”

Indeed, “[i]t is one thing for the major­ity to conclude that the Constitution protects a right to same-sex marriage; it is something else to portray every­one who does not share the majority’s ‘better informed understanding’ as bigoted.”

In conclusion, because the Court has inappropriately redefined marriage everywhere, there is urgent need for policy to ensure that the government never penalizes anyone for standing up for marriage. As discussed in my new book, Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom, we must work to protect the freedom of speech, association, and religion of those who continue to abide by the truth of marriage as union of man and woman.

At the federal level, the First Amendment Defense Act is a good place to start. It says that the federal government cannot discriminate against people and institutions that speak and act according to their belief that marriage is a union of one man and one woman. States need similar policies.

Recognizing the truth about marriage is good public policy. Today’s decision is a significant setback to achieving that goal. We must work to reverse it and recommit ourselves to building a strong marriage culture because so much of our future depends upon it.
