When So Few Defend Liberty


A little over two weeks ago Justin Smith penned “Liberty Violated” to quite angrily protest the USMCA mirror of NAFTA. In that submission I concurred with Justin that the USMCA was just as wicked for America as NAFTA was but I was defensive for President Trump so I entitled the piece “An Intro to ‘Liberty Violated’” to include my Pro-Trump stance. If you wander into the comment section, you will discover Justin was quite a bit less than pleased with my Pro-Trump commentary.

 

I learned today that both the House and Senate have overwhelmingly passed USMCA legislation that merely awaits a Trump signature to become law. THAT SADDENS ME! Because I still believe the plusses outweigh the minuses when it comes to Trump versus the Commie Dems. BUT Justin is correct, the USMCA will challenge U.S. sovereignty and the U.S. Constitution when the long run comes into view.

 

I am amazed on the blindness of pundits and legislators who call themselves Conservative yet are quite supportive of the USMCA. A good example of this blindness can be read at The Epoch Times of all places which lists all the short term benefits economically benefitting various Americans but totally ignoring the long term pitfalls the USMCA holds for the USA. The article is entitled, “Senate Passes USMCA Deal, Sending It to Trump’s Desk”.

 

ALSO Justin touches on the Counter-Constitutional gun-grabbing efforts proceeding in Virginia and Colorado.

 

Justin is correct in his belligerence in that the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers is disappearing. We Americans are like frogs placed in a pot of water not realizing that as the water begins to boil, we will be dead to Freedom and Liberty already.

When So Few Defend Liberty

When No One Else Will …

 

By Justin O. Smith

Freedom and liberty no longer matter to Democrats or Republicans, both of whom are showing themselves all so willing, all the more willing, to sell America piece by piece to the highest bidder, and individual liberty and national sovereignty be damned, as they collect their 30 pieces of silver at the expense of the American people.

 

You get the government You vote for, and our society is so damned CORRUPT that all we have today is RAMPANT CORRUPTION Throughout States and Federal Government DESPITE ANY “GOOD INTENTIONS” of the Trump Administration — some of which one must certainly doubt given recent developments and the continued massive spending bills, among other items.

 

The U.S. House of Representatives led by the Democrat Majority passed the national sovereignty killing United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement [USMCA text dated 12/13/19] created by the same Obama negotiation team that attempted to pawn off the terrible Trans-Pacific Partnership on America, and just today, the U.S. Senate Republican Majority passed it.

 

All that remains is President Trump’s signature, which is sure to follow, since, for inexplicable reasons other than he just wanted to see something “Big” pass, he has touted and backed this miserable bill from the start.

 

Now we see an anti-American and tyrannical Democratic Party led majority in the Virginia State Legislature ramming anti-Second Amendment legislation — UNCONSTITUTIONAL Firearm Bills and “rules” — through the legislature against the will of the majority of Virginians, in a manner that can only be described as tyrannical.

 

And similarly, we also are witnessing similar “gun control laws” either passed, as in Colorado, or moving in many states like Georgia and Florida, “laws” that penalize normally good and decent Americans, while making matters better for criminals.

 

More and more often, We — the American People — are put upon, lied to and abused by elected officials who act more like Iran’s Supreme leaders, like absolute rulers held unaccountable and answerable to no one, and if no one else is sick of it, I’m here to say that I’m damn good and sick of it.

 

Between these self-important self-aggrandizing petty tyrants and the all-powerful black robed tyrants who are even worse, VIOLATING the Constitution at will with impunity and no repercussions or consequences, our freedom and liberty is slowly being ripped away from us all, little by little, step by step.

 

Each of You is free to follow Your own conscience, and I intend to follow mine, but I absolutely will not obey ANY illegitimate UnConstitutional law handed down from any government entity or agency or bureau, whether anyone fights it and repeals it or not. If they get repealed, GREAT! If they don’t, I don’t give a good damn, since I don’t answer to tyrants and their arbitrary fiats colored as “law”.

 

I aim to do just exactly as I please from this point on, and the government can go to hell. They’ve broken any semblance of a “social contract” too many times over to the point that the Constitution no longer limits, controls or impedes their arbitrary and dangerous assaults against the U.S. Bill of Rights and Our God Given Rights. And, I will set out each day meaning no harm and doing no wrong, and as such, a Free Born American, I will expect to be left alone and to my own devices, free from any government contact.

 

Some will call me “outlaw”. I name myself a “Free Born American” fully entitled to hold, protect and defend my God Given Rights WHEN NO ONE ELSE WILL, or at least so few in government are barely even trying to defend them.

 

When the system fails us, when elections no longer matter, and tyranny is gaining ground and taking the day, it’s past time to Water the Tree of Liberty with the Blood of Tyrants.

 

God Bless the American Patriots and Their Families and God Damn the United States Government, as it currently stands. May He Damn America’s Enemies Both Foreign and Domestic to the Hell They Have Earned and So Richly Deserve.

 

And May God Help the American Patriots to Keep America Free for All Eternity.

A Globalist Anti-American Scheme


If you read my blog it is no secret I am a huge President Trump supporter and regard the leadership of the Democratic Party to be witting and maybe in some cases (though can’t think of any) unwitting transform-America Marxists. BUT I am not a registered Republican.

 

Why?

 

After President Reagan, GOP Presidents and nominees for President have been largely a disappointment to the Originalism of America’s Founding principles (that Dems so often LIE to defend). After McCain and Romney in varying degrees proved to be Republicans in Name Only (aka not loyal to Conservative Americans) losing to an obvious Marxist liar in Barack Hussein Obama (Old SlantRight blog posts on BHO Marxism: HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE) – more race-baiter than friend of Black-Americans, I became a registered Independent. My only regret with that move is in my State that means I cannot participate in Primary elections.

 

As you will recall or discover below, one of President Trump’s campaign issues for 2016 was an anti-NAFTA and anti-TPP stand as a bad deal. So, I’m a bit astounded to-date he is supportive of the equally egregious USMCA globalist/sovereignty robbing deal being pushed seemingly by equal manners in the GOP, the Dems and unsurprisingly by the MSM. Justin Smith exposes a glaringly BAD DEAL.

A Globalist Anti-American Scheme

President Trump Has Been Duped

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 12/16/2019 9:44 PM

 

President Donald J. Trump, “the Great Negotiator”, is touting the worse “trade agreement” in U.S. history, after he and Democrats reached an agreement on the ** United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement [aka USMCA] on December 10th 2019, and if this globalist mess is the best he can do, something is dreadfully wrong within his administration. This agreement is the antithesis of America First and merges the worse parts of NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership [aka TPP] that was rejected in 2017, and President Trump has either inadvertently taken his eye off the process, as the globalist wolves entered the hen-house, or he is a willing and complicit actor in a process that destroys U.S. sovereignty.

 

In a morning tweet, on December 10th, President Trump hailed the prospect of completing one more campaign promise: “America’s great USMCA Trade Bill is looking good.”

 

Robert Lighthizer, the chief trade official leading negotiations for the U.S., stated: “We have created a deal that will benefit American workers, farmers, and ranchers for years to come. This will be the model for American trade deals going forward.”

 

This egregious piece of legislation is set to go to a vote on Thursday December 19th in the House of Representatives, unless something cancels the vote, according to one staffer in Representative Mark Green’s office, and it more than likely will pass, since, as of this writing, even some Republicans-In-Name-Only, such as Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN) — Tennessee 3rd District, are currently set to vote in favor of its passage. As an aside, I made sure to tell Rep. Fleischmann’s staffer that I would in fact travel to his area and work against him, if he votes for this deeply flawed, anti-American piece of ill-conceived crap.

 

Americans have continuously been told that this renegotiated deal is all about trade and improving life for all North Americans and Mexicans, but it is more than clear that it is really about control. This “deal” is about the total control of all things and all people that fall under its jurisdiction.

 

A page by page comparison of the 2325 page USMCA and the TPP reveals an extensive overlap. Nearly all the exact same problems inherent in the TPP also are found in the USMCA, in the manifest erosion of national sovereignty, the unrestricted movement of foreign nationals and the de facto facilitation of illegal immigration, collective bargaining for workers and measures to combat climate change.

 

According to ** this study — How much of the Transpacific Partnership is in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement? (June 26th 2019) — conducted by researchers from the University at Ottawa, fifty-seven percent of the text of the USMCA is copied from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a treaty repeatedly described as a “horrible deal” by President Trump. Twenty-nine out of thirty chapters have equivalents in the USMCA and seventy-two percent of the matched USMCA chapters are found in both agreements. Many of the chapter titles are identical and so too are the various articles and clauses they each contain. And upon deep analysis, the textual similarity between the USMCA and the TPP reveal that have a great deal in common; they are of the same generation of treaties, and they do not mark a fundamental rupture in U.S. practices, despite President Trump’s rhetoric.

 

Within days of the release of the first text of the USMCA, Richard Haass, a globalist proponent of the New World Order and president of the Council on Foreign Relations, praised the USMCA due to its alignment with the TPP. According to Haass, “USMCA is NAFTA plus TPP plus a few tweaks”.

 

Take an in depth look at the agreement, and one will discover Chapter 30 establishes a new governing bureaucracy under a Free Trade Commission of unelected and unaccountable men and women overseeing various lower regional committees. Just as initially set forth in the TPP Commission, the Free Trade Commission can make changes to the USMCA without the consent of Congress, and this fact, in and of itself, completely undermines Article I Section 8 of the Constitution and Congressional authority and power to regulate trade with foreign nations.

 

The United States already has enough problems with an illegal alien invasion of between 22 to 40 million illegals without compounding it by relinquishing any sovereignty and decision making in this regard to an unelected Commission of the USMCA, which very well could be the consequence, if this treaty is ratified by the Senate, after the House passes it. Illegal immigration is certain to be further facilitated by Article 23.8 (Chapter 23) on Migrant Workers and a requirement to “ensure that migrant workers are protected under its (each respective nation’s) labor laws, whether they are nationals or non-nationals” (read “illegal aliens” and “foreign nationals”). This would serve to circumvent any determinations by our Congress and federal judiciary regarding the arrival of caravans of illegal aliens from Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, as well as a final determination on DACA. And making it plain in language identical to language in the TPP, Article 15.5 of the USMCA states: “No party shall adopt or maintain … a measure that … imposes a limitation on … the total number of natural persons that may be employed in a particular financial service sector or that a financial institution or cross-border service supplier may employ … in the form of numerical quotas or the requirement of an economic needs test.” This opens the door for any number of people to be brought across the border for any reason deemed necessary by one or more Parties involved, flooding America with radical Central American socialists.

 

[Blog Editor: Interesting perspective on USMCA ending National Sovereignty –  USMCA “Trade Agreement”, the North American Union, an Article V convention, and Red Flag Laws: Connecting the Dots; Posted by TMH – By Publius Huldah; Noisy Room; 12/7/19]

 

Staying true to other globalist anti-American schemes, the USMCA also forces signatories to submit to international concerns, such as the International Labor Organization, the World Trade Organization and United Nations mandates like the Law of the Sea, that the United States refused to ratify in 1982, along with “sustainable development” — mentioned no less than nine times in the chapter on the environment — and International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives directives and edicts, that many of the U.S. states have fought to eradicate over the past decade, after experiencing years of their oppressive nature. [Blog Editor: All related to sovereignty robbing UN Agenda 21, Agenda 2030 et al]

 

Although the original NAFTA agreement did not contain any directive on the environment in 1994, the USMCA contains a thirty pages in Chapter 24 dedicated to the environment, that mentions “sustainable development” nine times. Page two of this chapter states: “The Parties recognize that a healthy environment is an integral element of sustainable development and recognize the contribution that trade makes to sustainable development.” Other similar points address “sustainable fisheries” and the “sustainable use of biodiversity”, both of which are aligned with and straight from the United Nation’s Agenda 2030; and, it also contains the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation among the Governments of the United States, Canada and the United Mexican States, that has a subsidiary called the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, quite like a supra-EPA for all of North America.

 

The purpose of the USMCA’s environment chapter, according to Article 24.2, is as follows [page 2 of PDF]: ” … to promote mutually supportive trade and environmental policies and practices; promote high levels of environmental protection and effective enforcement of environmental laws; and enhance the capacities of the Parties to address trade-related environmental issues, including through cooperation, in furtherance of sustainable development.”

 

So, the USMCA is essentially calling for the regulation and control over all the waters, lands and organisms across three countries, in much the same way President Obama sought to exert complete control over America through the Water Rules for the United States EPA regulation. The USMCA would strip the United States of control in these areas, through its control over three countries and multi-layers of government overseen and directed by regional government entities. This would effectively put all American lives — where they live, how they live and what jobs they may perform in any given region — in the hands of unelected bureaucrats, with little to no real oversight whatsoever.

 

As far back as the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan was intelligent enough and prescient to recognize the Law of the Sea Treaty as a thinly veiled attempt to force a lurch towards world government and the New World Order later described in glowing terms by President George H.W. Bush, a globalist “Republican”, and so Reagan refused to sign it, after Jeanne Kirkpatrick, U.S. Ambassador to the UN from 1981 to 1985, testified before the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, in fierce opposition to its ratification. And although Pres. Bush Jr urged its ratification in 2007 and it was once again supported in 2012 by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as of 2019, the U.S. Senate has still refused to ratify the UN convention.

 

However, in the USMCA’s Chapter 24, [Scroll to] Article 24.18, “Sustainable Fisheries Management”, the United States, Canada and Mexico are required to adhere to the Law of the Sea Treaty in regards to managing their fishing industries. In other words, the United States will essentially surrender its sovereignty over all its waterways and miles of coastal oceans to the jurisdiction of UN international law, which would be a national security nightmare on too many levels possible to entertain here, all in the name of protecting fish and marine life.

 

[Blog Editor: Of Interest – USMCA Sneaking UN Law of the Sea Treaty Through The Back Door? By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh; Canada Free Press; 11/15/18]

 

All of this opens a path towards a North American Union, as the USMCA seeks to merge the economies of these three countries into one. Think of it as similar to the authoritarian European Union on steroids, dashing madly along and trampling on each and every inalienable right and each item in our U.S. Bill of Rights along the way.

 

Is it any wonder that the anti-American Travelers, the Communists and the New World Order globalists are so ecstatic over the creation of this USMCA “New Deal”, the old made new?

 

According to the Huffington Post, “At least half of the men and women standing behind Trump during his Rose Garden ceremony praising the new deal were the same career service staff who negotiated nearly identical provisions in TPP, which Trump had railed against.” Trevor Kincaid, one of the group and the lead negotiator for TPP, observed, “It’s really the same with a new name.”

 

Doesn’t most of America remember just how bad TPP was proven to be? Don’t all of You recall how hard freedom loving Americans fought to defeat TPP?

 

All America must flood the White House and Congress with calls and letters demanding this treaty be completely eradicated and thrown in the trash where it belongs. Remind Trump how he felt about the TPP when he rejected it by executive order in 2017, and explain to him how disastrous the USMCA will be in practice. If he and representatives and senators look at this honestly with America’s best interests at heart, they will all take immediate action to terminate this ill-founded evil machination, designed by men who would destroy America.

 

Lincoln Bloomfield, a longtime State Department bureaucrat and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote a report in 1962, that was financed by the State Department. His report proposed that “ever-larger units evolve through customs unions, confederation, regionalism, etc., until ultimately the larger units coalesce under a global umbrella. America is now witnessing the culmination of those globalists’ efforts coming to fruition through the completion of one segment of the “global umbrella” — a globalist objective — by way of the USMCA.

 

Those who created the USMCA have no respect for U.S. sovereignty and the Constitution, no true love for America and no honor, and more than likely, President Trump has been duped by them, since no evidence exists that shows the President has ever supported globalism. More than that, President Trump failed to understand that the management of the entire United States is guided by approximately five pages and a single paged Bill of Rights, rather than over 2000 pages, or that a real free trade agreement keeping with American principles of Liberty would be noted for its absence of rules on trade; and, while it may be hard to move the President to disavow and kill this miserable treaty, he will do it and he must, if he truly decries world government and does not wish to be known as the progenitor of “the worst agreement ever negotiated”, akin to the one-worlders and the likes of the Rockefellers and Soros; and in the process, let us place our government back in the hands of “We the People” in 2020, as we hold people and organizations accountable for moving in such a reprehensible, ignoble manner to end our Republic and destroy our Constitution in pursuit of Marxist-Leninism and a global government, actions that most freedom and liberty loving Americans use to call treason.

J.O.S.-Facebook, Muslim Migration, USMCA & RedforED


Posted by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© August 25, 2019

 

Justin Smith is a frequent contributor to a Facebook Group I created with a humongous unwieldy name. I called the Group Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists. The Group’s title explains the reason I formed it. I was tired of always landing in Facebook jail for my Conservative and Counterjihad posts which rub the Leftist Facebook gods the wrong way. The Group is small so feel to join if for any reason, simply to protest censorship of Conservatives, Counterjihad exposés and Pro-Israel thoughts.

I still land in Facebook Jail and receive censorship for insane reasons. The last time for actually posting too fast to other Facebook Groups. The time before that, for supporting Tommy Robinson who is being persecuted in the UK for exposing Muslim rapists and pedophiles. I actually believe my Robinson FB Jail stint was because I commented to a Leftie Brit who believed Robinson’s jail sentence was justified due to UK Hate Speech laws that protect Muslim insanity. I told the Brit defending UK law that “13 Colonies left the United Kingdom over Free Speech and oppressive laws.” Or at least something similar to that. Then BOOM, I was in Facebook Jail.

 

Enough about my motives, back to Justin Smith.

 

Yesterday Justin posted some thoughts and pointing toward other writers’ thoughts that I felt should be disseminated to a wider audience. Today I noticed Justin was busy at as well, but I’m sharing yesterday’s Justin thoughts. Where a title may not be obvious I’ll arbitrarily make one and I’ll probably toss some editing in also.

America’s Path, No Communist-No Islamic Path

 

Multiculturalist Un-Americanism

 

Justin O. Smith

8/24/19 1:36 PM

 

Although I am a strong advocate for Halting All Muslim Immigration, under the current state of our national politics and all the Muslim sympathizers and traitors to America in the Democratic Party, this won’t happen anytime soon, not soon enough. So, in the meantime, and if Conservatives take a majority in both houses of Congress in 2020, perhaps we can ensure that any future migrants from predominantly Muslim countries will be banned from becoming U.S. citizens.

 

Due to Democratic Party Communist political correctness and the Islamic supremacist incursion into America through groups like the Council for American Islamic Relations [CAIR] and the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA] among others, even open discussions about the impact of Muslim migration is a non-starter. Such discussions are now judged as “Islamophobic” and have been driven underground and stifled in mainstream conversation.

 

America shouldn’t be required to extinguish, eradicate, its own culture and traditions by Her communists and the current hordes of Islamofascists, all a conglomeration of secularists, atheists and Sons of Allah who hate America, the Constitution, freedom and Christianity. We used to keep communists out of America, and our cessation of that practice has enabled those enemies of America to subvert Her. Islam is just one more segment associated with such subversive and destructive efforts aimed at ending this republic.

 

America has been besieged by Islamization problems in every major city in our country, from Minneapolis to New York, Dearborn to Boston and Nashville and Dallas and even smaller cities like Murfreesboro, TN and Fairfax, Virginia, including the undermining of its culture. “Inclusion” of any group of people should never mean the sacrifice and elimination of one’s own traditions, culture and America’s heritage.

 

Each person who values freedom must demand that our leaders halt all Muslim immigration now, or pass legislation that forbids Muslims U.S. citizenship and any voice in the path forward for our nation, since the Islamic path isn’t an American path.

Trump’s Promises Not Kept

[News With Views version

Capitol Hill Outsider version (used here)

August 17, 2019]

 

By  J.W. Bryan

 

Before President Trump was elected, he made many disparaging remarks about NAFTA, and how disastrous it would be for Americans and would continue to be, and that if he was elected, he would renegotiate it to our benefit, or pull out of it.

 

United States, Mexico, Canada (USMCA)

 

Well…it has been renegotiated but certainly not to our benefit. It is far worse than NAFTA. Yet he is saying that it is a great deal, why? Well…let’s face it; it has to be that he is listening to his advisors; and practically all of them are either from the Swamp or they are connected with those who are. His current United States Trade Representative is Robert Lighthizer who is a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations, founded in 1921 and massively funded by the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation in the 1930s.

 

Who Makes the Rules

 

In a recent article by John Fonte, entitled, Who Makes the ‘Rules’ in a ‘Rules Based’ Liberal Global Order, he explains the massive irrational and obsessive hatred of President Trump by the Democratic Socialists and many of the neo-con Trotskyite Republicans.  He explains, “The forces promoting global governance represent a serious actor, driver, or player in world politics. Transnationalism or globalism has an ideology and a social-material base. And, crucially, it has a strong American connection.” Transnationalism is the word now for globalism.

“The ideology is utopian, the age-old dream of worldwide peace and prosperity under a benevolent global regime. Further, the globalist project is bipartisan, in terms of both ideas and institutions.”

 

This is what President Trump is facing and there are countless numbers of these utopian dreamers who surround him. Just like the pitfalls of our President’s tax overhaul for American workers, written by the Director of the National Economic Council, globalist Gary Cohn, the USMCA contains massive perils to our sovereignty and is being promoted by CFR member Robert Lighthizer.  (Regarding Trump’s magnificent economic tax bill, we must never allow the Democratic socialists to regain the presidency or both houses of Congress.  If we do, the deductions we gave up will never come back, but our taxes will be raised.)

 

If the USMCA is ratified it will practically destroy everything that President Trump has accomplished. Not only will it bring in through the back door the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty, which was rejected by President Reagan and President Bush, it will open the gates for the United Nations to increase its domestic agenda through Agenda 2030. (The Law of the Sea Convention defines the rights and responsibilities of nations with respect to their use of the world’s oceans, establishing guidelines for businesses, the environment and the management of marine natural resources.)

 

The transnationalists were only too evident in NAFTA, and now again in the USMCA.

 

Big Pharma

 

“The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs,” the president said in his most recent State of the Union Address. “It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place.”

 

However, big Pharma, according to reports, loves the “great deal” of NAFTA 2.0 (USMCA) which actually forbids the U.S. Congress from curtailing Big Pharma’s patent monopolies on some of the world’s most expensive drugs. In other words: Trump’s “America First” trade deal restricts U.S. sovereignty, for the sake of locking in high drug prices.

 

Job Outsourcing

 

In addition, corporations that have used NAFTA to outsource hundreds of thousands of jobs to Mexico are thrilled that the revised deal’s labor and environmental terms are too weak to stop more job outsourcing.  Both the U.S. and Canada say they want Mexican labor reform and no more sweat shops, that Mexico must equate its labor laws with those of the United States and Canada.

 

Immigration

 

The USMCA would completely jeopardize our border security and sovereignty negotiated by Robert Lighthizer.  Among the many land mines in this 2,325-page treaty are provisions protecting migrant rights and prohibiting numerical quotas on certain foreign workers.  Imagine the havoc that U.S. federal judges or judges of USMCA tribunals or World Trade Organization tribunals could inflict with these provisions.

 

Conclusion

 

When President Trump spoke before the U.N. General Assembly, he really had the globalists worried when he said, “We will never surrender America’s sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy. America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.

 

What a wonderful statement – but then he said, “The United States is committed to making the United Nations more effective.” This was an absolute antithesis of his prior statement.

 

Call on President Trump, your senators, and representatives to oppose the USMCA before this dangerous venture gains any more momentum.

The Useful Idiots Will Always Be With Us

 

By William Marshall

A recent pilgrimage by a “delegation” of three Chicago schoolteachers to Venezuela in a show of support for dictator Nicolas Maduro is a reminder that you truly cannot fix stupid.  A stubborn strain of obtuseness runs through humanity that apparently no real-world demonstration of socialism’s horrors can eliminate. The saddest aspect of this spectacle, perhaps, is that the chosen vocation of these pathetic diehards extolling Maduro’s madness is educating America’s youth.

 

Despite a century’s experience in the abject failure of socialism’s economic policies, the mass slaughter that invariably accompanies it, and the societal wreckage left in its wake; there always seem to be those who tirelessly and inexplicably cling to the utopian aspirations of socialist tyrants. And there can always be found those, like these Chicago teachers, Michael MooreSean Penn, and others who can be called upon to trek to socialist hells like Venezuela and Cuba and come back with glowing reports of their success.

 

The phrase often used for these dupes is “useful idiots,” a term usually attributed to the founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin, although there exists some doubt over the term’s true provenance. It is apparently absent from Lenin’s writings. However, what’s not in doubt is that Lenin and his successor, Josef Stalin, did recognize the utility of these useful idiots in helping persuade others to believe that which is not so about the wonders of socialism/communism.

 

In fact, the trip by the Chicago schoolteachers is very reminiscent of a trip to the USSR organized by the Soviet government for a bunch of left-leaning American celebrity types (actors and writers) in the 1930s in order to fete them and show them the glories of Marxism-Leninism in action. They counted on these American rubes – think your 1930s equivalent of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders – to speak and write favorably of what they would see in Mother Russia. They were to dispel nasty rumors about millions of people starving to death in Stalin’s collectivization of Ukrainian farmland, which turned the Breadbasket of Europe into the Wasteland of the Soviets, not unlike the once oil-rich Venezuela becoming the beggar of South America. Of course, the rumors of millions in Ukraine dying were true, with estimates of the dead ranging from three to ten million. But hey, if you’re going to make an omelet…

 

The Windy City teachers, who proudly belong to the #RedForEd movement (I am not making this up) apparently have a blog called Radical Educator Collective. They also loudly proclaimed their membership in the Chicago Teachers Union, wore CTU hats in their Venezuela excursion pics and pimped a document called “CTU Resolution to Oppose the Invasion of Venezuela.” The three teachers, Sarah Chambers, V. Voeta Vargas, and Fabiana Casas, were joined by Teamster-turned-CTU union organizer Richard Berg. CTU, you must be so proud.

 

If the teachers’ grammar is any reflection of the quality of education that Chicago kids are receiving from this luddite group, perhaps we’d be better off if they’d remained in Caracas. Ms. Chambers, most recently (as far as I can tell) employed by the Maria Saucedo Scholastic Academy, an alleged “magnet school” for STEM kids, tweeted out this gem in response to a Twitter critic who took issue with her travel to Maduro’s paradise: “Have you visited Venezuela & spoke to 100s there? As a teacher, I teach my students to be critical thinkers, to get primary sources, listen to ppl’s stories & do research before just believing any news. I suggest you do the same.”

 

I hope she doesn’t teach English composition. In any event, it seems that Ms. Chambers may have been jettisoned by Maria Saucedo in 2017, so it’s not clear to me where she hangs her hammer and sickle right now. I haven’t readily been able to identify a more current employer.

 

As millions of people are fleeing Venezuela due to hyperinflation, starvation, disease, extrajudicial killings, and all the other joys of the Maduro regime, four never-say-die-to-socialism representatives of Chicago’s educator class headed into Venezuela in July, elbowing their way through the teeming hordes of Venezuelans fleeing in the opposite direction. Then they got their picture taken with Maduro apparatchiks, who must have wondered what was wrong in the head with these silly gringos.

 

In what sounds like a Saturday Night Live sketch, the Chicago Tribune said the quartet “wrote admiringly of its [Venezuela’s] socialism, its communes and high literacy rates.” Never mind the masses of people eating from dumpsters, with the average Venezuelan losing 19 pounds a year due to food shortages. And to think I’ve been doing Weight Watchers. Maybe my own excursion to the Paradise of Hugo Chavez would hasten my diminution.

 

The useful idiots who returned to America from the Soviet sojourn spoke admiringly of the Soviet experience with Marxism-Leninism too. They were probably a bit more effective in their propagandizing for that odious regime, though. New York Times reporter Walter Duranty consistently lied about true conditions in the USSR and in the process convinced President Roosevelt to recognize the Soviet regime in 1933. Duranty, now believed to have been a paid Soviet agent, actually won a Pulitzer prize in 1932 for his phony reports on the USSR. The Pulitzer Board looked at the issue of revoking the prize for Duranty’s fake news reports on the successes of Soviet collectivization in 2003 but, gosh darn it, just couldn’t see fit to rescind it. However, it did “extend its sympathies” to the millions of dead from Stalin’s policies. I’m sure that was comforting to Ukrainians.

 

The Left Coast has its own version of the Chicago teachers in the form of a California middle school teacher named Yvette Felarca. She was a prominent figure in a Marxist Antifa group called By Any Means Necessary, who assaulted a right-wing protester for carrying a sign at a rally that she didn’t like. She eventually sued Judicial Watch to stop its efforts to obtain her communications and disciplinary records. She lost, with the judge calling her suit “entirely frivolous” and ordering her to pay $26,000 in legal fees and expenses.

 

While these individuals do not represent the entirety of the education profession, of course, their extremism does give pause for concern. If America’s youth are not taught the true history of the carnage wrought by 100 years of communist and socialist pathology, they may be doomed to repeat it under an Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders or AOC.
