Open Letter to Taylor Swift-Politics or Action?

 

I guess you could say that I am a “Gray Swiftie” (septuagenarian), who has been following this remarkable girl/women’s career since she was the ripe of age of 12 when she sang our National Anthem at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia.  She was appropriately attired in a patriotic flag themed top!

Taylor Swift National Anthem

We would all have to wait until she turned the ripe old age of 16 before she released her first album, self entitled, in 2006.  The most intriguing aspect of Taylor has been here seemingly innate penchant for business.  Not sure whether she exhibited a typical Sagittarian propensity for controlling everything around her, (I am happily and thankfully married to a Sagittarian), or she was a unique, hard-wired left and right brain phenom!  

Taylor controlled her career from start to finish walking away from a development contract with a major labor to join a new start-up, Big Machine Records, led by Scott Borchetta.  This move was only one such self-initiative by Swift but one that gave her virtual control over her career.  (Swift’s contract with Big Machine is up this year so it will be interesting if she stay with BM or leaves, either way, it will be her decision)  She remains in control of her songwriting, productions, tours, marketing and has become a leader in securing better royalty agreements for songwriters and artists in the new streaming world.  In short, don’t let the blonde hair and blonde cliché’s fool you.  This is one talented and bright entertainers and businesswomen of the modern era of music and entertainment.

Swift Steps Into the Political Arena in 2018

Up until the latest mid-term elections, Taylor has intelligently stayed away from politics while supporting anti-bullying and other worthwhile social causes.  She is also a renown philanthropist with a big heart especially for kids with illnesses and police officers who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.  So, it was kind of shocking to see her step into the 2018, politically charged arena and openly oppose Representative Marsha Blackburn and support her opponent Phil Bredesen, for the Bob Corker US Senate seat.   

Taylor noted several votes that had been cast by Blackburn as her basis of not supporting the female candidate.  Taylor posted on her Instagram page these words:  She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry.” She also alluded to events that have happened over the past two years and I assume she is including the election of Donald Trump: In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now.”  

Taylor’s Political Choices Going Forward

I certainly support everyone’s right to support whichever political party and candidates they feel best represent them and their views.  I would hope, however, that Taylor use her intelligence and abilities to look under the hood and see where Senator Blackburn and President Trump actually come down on the core issues and see if she could use her celebrity to further causes she and they agree on.  Taylor is too smart, given her business successes, to merely accept “group think” at face value.  She is deeper than most of her counterparts in the entertainment industry to accept sound bites and bigoted labeling as fact rather than use her own intellect to discuss the issues directly with Blackburn and Trump.  She could do this off-the-record and out of the limelight so she would not incur the wrath of her contemporaries. 

See the source image

Taylor would be able to actually help solve some of the issues she espouses if she did reach out.  Senator Blackburn will be in office for the next 6 years and the President is more than likely to win re-election in 2020.  Taylor can choose to either waste these 6 years parroting meaningless rhetoric or dig in and see if she can actually help resolve issues.  I get that some in the entertainment Industry would rather use shallow political rhetoric than actually put themselves out and actually solve problems.  When you see Van Jones and others embrace the Trump prison reform and fresh start programs, you see that people from different sides can come together and actually solve problems.  There are so many other issues that need to be addressed in this country and the world, that it would be a shame if people like Taylor did not put their intellectual talents to work to actually improve our world.  

Taylor, Luke 12:28 reminds us, “…and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

Nationalism + Patriotism is Not Racism!

 

See the source imageRadical Left and its Media slam Trump, and the majority of Americans, who believe that making America First benefits all Americans regardless of race, creed, sex, or sexual preference.  Further, that American Nationalism makes American Great which allows us to remain the most charitable nation on earth and one that defends and helps the downtrodden around the world.  American Nationalism also ensures that America has the resources to help its own downtrodden and lift them out of poverty and despair.  

One of our allies in Europe, France, and its President Emmanuel Macron slammed President Trump, and OUR embrace of Nationalism and the expression of Nationalism by its citizens via Patriotism.  Macron wrongly described that:  “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. In saying ‘Our interests first, whatever happens to the others,’ you erase the most precious thing a nation can have, that which makes it live, that which causes it to be great and that which is most important: its moral values.”

Emmanuel Macron delivers a speech at the Arc de Triomphe during a commemoration ceremony for Armistice Day

Seriously!

  • If America doesn’t put itself and its economy first, just how does Macron think we will have the money and other resources to DEFEND FRANCE!
  • If America doesn’t put itself and its military first, just how does Macron think we will be able to rescue FRANCE AGAIN!
  • If America doesn’t put itself and its people first, just how does Macron think we will have citizens that are willing to sacrifice themselves not only for our nation but for FRANCE!

Macron and his Left Wing EU counterparts would like nothing better than take America down a notch and not have to look to America for their own defense and source of economic strength.  In fact, the EU itself was created to compete against the US economically and otherwise.  The real truth is that these nations are so jealous of each other and so NATIONALISTIC in their own right they are no threat to us.  

Maybe Macron should take the time to look up the definition of Patriotism and Nationalism so he will quickly see that “NATIONALISM IS NOT A BETRAYAL OF PATRIOTISM” but rather our Nationalism is expressed wholly and comprehensively through our PATRIOTISM.  The dictionary defines these two words as follows:

Merriam Webster Dictionary Definitions:

Nationalism

A Sense of National Consciousness Exalting One Nation Above All Others and Placing Primary Emphasis on Promotion of Its Culture and Interests as Opposed to Those of Other Nations or Supranational Groups.

Patriotism

Love For Or Devotion to One’s Country

 

The word Patriot is derived from the early Greek word Patrios, which means OF ONE’S FATHER, or, handed down from our forefathers/founders.  It is an embrace of our National identity as created by those who preceded us!  

Left and the Media Try to Brand Nationalism as Racist

The Left and its Media always conflate White Nationalism with Nationalism in order to brand President Trump and the majority of Americans as RACISTS which is totally unfounded.  The Left and their Media employ this tactic to divide this nation along racial lines and to shame anyone who embrace the Nationalist America First policies in order to destroy any support for President Trump and his policies.  

If you are a Christian, you can really drive the Left and the Media nuts by quoting:  Deuteronomy 32:8;When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel. IF the Left throws Old versus New Testament at you, just quote: Acts 17:26; From one man He made every nation of men, to inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands.

The Bottom Line

The real reason that the Left and its Media try to slam Nationalism and anyone who believes in Nationalism and Patriotism is that Nationalism is the antithesis of GLOBALISM!  The left and its Media have one goal, to tear down America as a Superpower and economic leader in order to redistribute our wealth to other nations and then retain total control over the “world citizens”.  As long as America is strong, the Left and its Media will continue to attempt to destroy our greatness and attack those of us fighting to maintain America’s greatness.  It is that simple!

Florida’s Broward Election Malfeasance-Must Revote or Decertify County’s Vote!

See the source image

Brenda Snipes, Broward Supervisor of Election

Either force Broward (and Palm Beach County) to REVOTE, or DISQUALIFY all ballots from these two counties!  Otherwise, the rest of the votes cast across this nation have been diluted or nullified.

Florida Election law contains several “hard” procedures that are required for every one of its Election Commissioners to follow.  These are in place to ensure that voter fraud cannot take place and that all ballots are casts and counted uniformly across the State of Florida.  Except, if one or more of its Election Commissioners do not follow the State’s Election laws, then the whole system breaks down and can yield victories to the underserved and defeat to those that won fairlyThe 2018 mid-term election votes in Broward County appear to have fallen victim to malfeasance on the part of Brenda Snipes, its Election Commissioner, and may in fact tip at least three of its races to Democrats who had not won as of election night.

Why is this malfeasance a NATIONAL problem?  You just saw how close the vote for Justice Kavanagh was and in fact relied on one Senate vote to confirm him.  Now, you are seeing that one Senate seat may go from a Republican to a Democrat, due to Broward County malfeasance, which could literally determine whether a series of judges, and even a future Supreme Court Justice, along with many other Trump administration positions, are confirmed or denied confirmation!  The Broward County fiasco is literally a Constitutional crisis!

Remedy?

The core of the Broward County problem is that due to Snipe’s malfeasance by not reporting voting counts and results per Florida law, she eliminated any way to determine how many votes were truly casts in order to prevent ballot stuffing, or ballot destruction, by Snipe and her fellow election officials.   In other words, there is no baseline to judge how many ballots should have been eligible for counting.  How did this happen.

In order to prevent erroneous reporting by counties, the State of Florida requires that each county tabulate and post results on an ongoing basis .  This allows for audit trails to be established that can be used to ensure that phony ballots are not added or valid ballots destroyed and not counted.  Snipes has yet to meet one of these deadlines for the 2018 election!  She is required to:

  1. Cast Ballots:  November 6th, Election Night:  All counties must post a preliminary count of how many ballots have been casts by 7:30PM the night of the election, Tuesday, November 6th!  Then the counties are required to update these totals every 45 minutes to ensure that an accurate baseline of cast ballots are tabulated and reported.  She missed these deadlines.
  2. Provisional Ballots:  November 8th, 2 days after the Election:  All provisional ballots that are eligible to be counted, (must have been checked against required eligibility criteria to vote), must be tabulated and reported by 5:00PM on Wednesday, November 8th.  This is critical to add the provisional ballot count to the number of ballots cast on election day to update the baseline for total eligible ballots cast.   She missed this deadline!
  3. Unofficial Counts and Results, Saturday, November 10th:  County canvassing boards are required to turn in first unofficial returns no later than noon on Nov. 10.  (Not sure as of this writing whether Snipes met this deadline but it is doubtful)

The bottom line is that without concurrent ballot counts and tallies, there is no way to determine whether the final counts are accurate or not and whether invalid ballots were created and counted after the fact!  This is NOT far-fetched in the case of Snipes and Broward County as she has been accused of gross mismanagement and election malfeasance in the past!

  • In 2017, Snipes admitted in court that she had allowed illegal aliens and felons to vote!
  • In 2016, Snipes was found guilty by a judge of DESTROYING ballots before the Federally mandated 22 month retention time.  This made it impossible for the challenger to Debbie Wassermann Shultz, Tim Canova, to inspect the ballots to challenge DWS election!  Looks like the Dems screwed not only Bernie but Mr. Canova!
  • In 2016, she “forgot” to put the medical marijuana initiative on the ballot altogether!
  • In 2012, Snipes allowed 2,000 votes to be counted from a “phantom” voting district where all 2,000 “voters” listed the same UPS store as their address!  She also “found” an additional 963 ballots after she had recessed the canvassing board and sent them home!

There are more instances but suffice it to say that Snipes’ actions are felonious and she would normally have been prosecuted except that this Broward County sheriff is not only a Democrat but also the sheriff that allowed the students at the Parkland school to be slaughtered and the shooter go uncontested for a long period of time.  This county is corrupt to its core and the rest of us should not be penalized nor our vote be nullified by being offset from this corrupt county regime.  Ms. Snipes must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for these current as well as past felonies that she has committed in violating Florida and Federal election statutes.

My hope is that someone will file a lawsuit stopping this vote fraud from impacting the 2018 mid-terms.  This county, and Palm Beach, must be forced to revote or their results ignored by the State of Florida.  As a legal voter, we are entitled to “Equal Protection” under the law and our vote must be protected by the Federal Government!  The Democrats have proven they have no scruples or moral constraints against winning at any cost.

There us a lesson for Republicans.  Snipes was put into this office by Jeb Bush and kept in office by Rick Scott even after countless allegations and citations against Snipes for election malfeasance.  I am not sure if they were afraid to fire her because she was Black or what.  If it was that they were afraid to fire her because she was a woman and Black, then we are in serious trouble.  Republicans must stand for the rule of law and not stand down over shout outs of racism or misogyny.  If not, the Democrat tactic of using racism and sexism to freeze Republicans, has been successful!  It does not phase our President!  Take a lesson from President Trump!

In the Age of Cynicism, Trump Supporters Trust Trump!

See the source image

As you were growing up, you created a set of truisms, hopes, and beliefs that have probably been shaken and even overtaken with a deep-seated cynicism of the world around you. 

  • Do you really believe that your Senators or Representatives really care about doing the right thing for you or do you believe that they are solely looking out for themselves?
  • Do you really believe that justice is truly blind and that everyone seeks and receives the same level of justice or do you believe that the rich and powerful are never brought to justice the way you or your peers would be?
  • Do you still have beliefs in institutions like you have in the past?
    • Do you believe the FBI is totally impartial when they investigate political or social opponents and do you think they would never seek to interfere in an election or try to destroy the President of the United States or other political/social opponents?
    • Do you believe the Department of Justice is totally impartial when they decide who to prosecute and do you think they would never seek to use the threat or actual prosecutions as a way to interfere with an election or use prosecutions to destroy the President of the United States or other political/social opponents?
    • Do you believe that the IRS only seeks to apply our tax code fairly and impartially and would never use its power to discriminate against political/social opponents and would never stonewall tax exempt status reviews to stifle would be organizations that are contrary to the positions of the current IRS and the current Administration?
    • Do you really trust the DOJ/FBI, CIA, DIA, and the NSA to always restrain themselves from using their powerful surveillance capabilities against US citizens or their political/social opponents and that they would never use these powers to interfere with elections or to destroy an elected President or other political/social opponents?
    • Do you really trust your priests to follow their vows of chastity and purity when dealing with parishioners and their children and to always put the best interests of their parishioners ahead of themselves and to never seek to use the power and sanctity of their position to coerce sexual acts from adult and adolescent parishioners?
  • Do you trust all of the “news” outlets, reporters and pundits on TV, the Radio and in Newspapers to bring you comprehensive, unbiased, and truthful reporting devoid of political/social bigotry and to never misreport, under report, or completely prejudice their reporting with their own prejudices and biases?
  • Do you hold many Sports, Movie, TV and Music Stars in high regard and in fact think of them as role models for yourself and your children and believe that they would never do anything that you would consider as immoral, illegal, or politically/socially corrupt?

I could go on for hours but I am sure you can think about many other examples of people and institutions you once held in high regard but now only feel disgust and betrayed by those people and institutions.  It is part of our nature to seek those who we can look up to or to think of some organizations or institutions as sacrosanct or hallowed.  It is also part of our nature to feel betrayed and abandoned by those same people, organizations, or institutions who act contrary to how we believe they should and then to feel crushed and demoralized by the world at large.

Enter Donald Trump!

See the source image

For a Trump Supporter, June 16, 2015, marked the date when they heard someone say things that echoed the truisms, hopes, and beliefs that they embraced as they grew up.  That someone was Donald J. Trump who was unafraid to be politically incorrect, stand for America First, and most of all put you back into the phrase, “We the People”.  He spoke plainly and directly to your beliefs, sense of fairness, and to the free principles that you thought were long-lost.  In short, you replaced your cynicism with faith, confidence, and hope that the America you grew up in and the values and freedoms it promised could be resurrected and the country made whole again!

Since his election, President Trump has fulfilled not only the promises he made to each of you, but has changed your hope for America into a personal reality, regardless of your race, nationality or religion.  He has once again empowered you to create the destiny for yourself and your family that you seek and not one that is imposed on you by government and others.   He has stood against a corrupt media, corrupt political systems, and corrupt government institutions.  He continues to fight and fight hard to maintain the values he has fought for and to thwart a constant barrage of criticisms, bad press, lies, and attacks from all quarters.  

I kind of feel sorry, (OK I just got over it), for those on the left who are mired in the abyss of cynicism and despair.  Who believe that only government and their leaders can make them happy and provide them with all of their needs, and they are needy!  Those who freely give up their personal freedom in exchange for the false sense of security provided by corrupt politicians and institutions hell-bent on peening them into submission and a life devoid of self-worth.

The optimism and enthusiasm of Trump Supporters completely confounds those on the left and their complicit and corrupt media.  They confuse God-given rights and faith with their own source of rights and faith that is rooted in “men” versus the power that lies within each of us.  Trump supporters don’t look to Trump as their source of self-esteem but look inward to their God-given strengths, rights, and freedoms to live life as they see fit.

Trump is merely the catalyst that has allowed this re-birth to take place.   TRUMP SUPPORTERS HAVE FAITH AS THAT FAITH IS OF THEMSELVES AND THEIR CREATOR!

Our Founders knew that they were creating a vessel that could hold all of the aspirations of its citizens and provide a pathway to personal fulfillment.  They also knew that this vessel was only as strong as the “clay” that formed it.  That clay was made up of free, determined, and hard-working people who would not be molded into a false shape.  Trump merely took the lid off of the vessel and let “We the People” out!

Khashoogi Death-Why Is The Left Hell Bent On Blasting Saudi Arabia?

Journalist or Activist?Trump Says Looks Like Khashoggi Dead, Threatens ConsequencesJamal Khashoogi, Muslim Brotherhood, Nephew of Multi-Billionaire Adnan Khashoogi, Largest 70’s Middle Eastern Arms Dealer

Note:  The author worked in the Middle East in the 1980’s working in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, and Tunisia.  He was acquainted with members of the Muslim Brotherhood and understands their politics and objectives; met with Adnan Khashoogi and his advisors on investing in projects in Egypt; and was close to the Anwar al-Sadat regime in Egypt and the Bourguiba regime in Tunisia.  This blog contains 40 articles dealing directly with or discussing the Muslim Brotherhood.  Search this blog to find these articles.  This link will give you a quick review of the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt: https://wp.me/pY51c-fv

What is at Stake In the Jamal Khashoogi Homicide

The transformation of the Muslim Middle East from radicalization by the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, Hamas and their proxies to a more moderate form of Islam and an acceptance of the existence of Israel would be severely curtailed if the Khashoogi homicide drove a wedge between the US and Saudi Arabia.  In the near term, Saudi Arabia would be forced into the arms of China and perhaps even Russia to secure arms it needs to defend its nation against external and internal threats.  In the near term, the US coalition against the Iranian nuclear build-up would be fractured and our ability to pressure and isolate Iran would be in jeopardy.  If Saudi Arabia is forced to align with Russia, who is an ally with Iran, that would be the worst possible outcome for the US in the Middle East.  The Trump goal of having the Middle East police the Middle East would be severely damaged and Trump would be faced with direct US intervention and Syria, Yemen and other hot spots where we have no direct self-interests.  In short, the dissolution of US/Saudi relations over the Khashoogi homicide is not in the best interests of the United States, period!

President Trump’s first overseas visit was to Saudi Arabia to meet with 50 leaders of Muslim Nations to solidify their support against Islamist Terrorism and to begin to de-radicalize Muslim nations, including Saudi Arabia, and to seek a true Middle East Peace.  While there is a long way to go and the start-up was somewhat rocky, Trump’s efforts are working.  The Saudi’s (with MBS leadership) have denounced its Wahabi radicalism and terror support, and most of the signatories to the agreement have taken steps to withdraw support to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Palestinian radicals.  

President Trump has also succeeded in forming an alliance between many of the Muslim signatories and Israel against the Islamic Republic of Iran and Iran’s goal to spread international terror and dominate the Middle East through nuclear threats.  These same nations are working with the US in formulating a permanent peace agreement between Israel and Palestine.  Without support from these Muslim nations, the Palestinian authority cannot survive so the prospects for a peace agreement are closer to a reality than ever before.  The dissolution of US/Saudi relations over the Khashoogi homicide is not in the best interests of the United States and could derail any Israeli/Palestinian peace agreement and weaken our fight to denuclearize Iran and remove its threat from the region.

The Resolution to Khashoogi’s Homicide is an Existential Fight Over Peace in the Middle East 

Keep in mind 6 things when listening to the news regarding the death of Jamal Khashoogi and the media’s “hair-on-fire” coverage of this event.

  1. Saudi Arabia is aligned with the US, Israel, Egypt and others against Iran/Russia/Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East.  This coalition is also working to formulate and install a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
  2. The Muslim Brotherhood is committed to converting all Muslim nations into Islamic Republics and to eliminate any attempts to moderate fundamentalist forms of Islam and opposes the existence of Israel and any Western influence in Muslim countries.  
  3. Jamal Khashoogi has been a sympathizer of the radical Muslim Brotherhood that opposes any moderating or modernization of Islam and in fact, supported the ISIS effort to create the Islamic Caliphate.   He has been touted as a “Journalist” but he is at least as much an “Activist for Terror organizations”.  At best, Khashoogi saw the democratization of the Middle East through the lens of the Arab Spring with the Muslim Brotherhood coming out as the dominant “choice of the people”.   Khashoogi was no fan of either the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia nor President Trump. 
  4. The President of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, is a fundamentalist Islamist aligned with and supports the Muslim Brotherhood and is buying arms from Russia even though Turkey is a member of NATO!  Turkey is also and advocate of the Obama Iran Nuclear deal and an opponent of the US policy to walk away from this agreement.
  5. The Muslim Brotherhood, Russia, Syria, and Turkey all support the Islamic radical, anti-west, Islamic Republic of Iran and its efforts to curtail any Islamic Reform whether Sunni or Shia initiated.  
  6. The Progressive-Left Media is staunchly opposed to the Trump Administration abandoning of the Iran “Nuclear Deal” and want to see Iran have a free rein in the Middle East to combat moderate Sunni or Shia attempts to control the Middle East.  The Left also support the Arab Spring movement to transform the Middle East into a Muslim Brotherhood brand if Islamic Republics like Iran.

Assume that Saudi Arabia ordered the murder of Jamal Khashoogi.  The Trump administration is faced with the difficulty of maintaining a working relationship with the kingdom while appearing to condemn the actions and also impose some form of “punishment” on the kingdom.  Not an easy task to say the least. 

  • If the Trump administration is too soft, then they will be condemned by the international community and the left.  No matter what Trump does, the “international community” and the Left will condemn any Trump action.
  • If the Trump Administration is too hard on Saudi Arabia and alienates the kingdom to the point where Saudi is driven to align with Russia and/or China, The US loses.
    • All trade with the kingdom would be lost to US businesses and Russia and China would benefit.
    • The Anti-Terror US/Muslim coalition would most likely dissolve.
    • Iran would be emboldened as they would see that at worst that Iran no longer faces opposition from Saudi Arabia and its allies and at best Saudi Arabia and its allies become “friendly” with Iran.
    • Any possibility for an Israeli/Palestinian peace would evaporate.

In short, all of the diplomatic successes of the Trump Administration to coalesce Muslim nations against Islamist terrorism could be erased; and the Middle East plunged into anther cycle of radicalism against the West.

Any Solutions?

To begin, there are probably no solutions that will be acceptable to the “international community/Left” and Trump will be condemned no matter what action he takes.

Assuming that the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) ordered the assassination, and there is any proof of the order, Trump could work with the King to name an alternate crown prince from the King’s other 13 children.  Or, he could have the crown prince stand down pending further review by Saudi “courts”.  They could work out other actions that do not endanger the US/Saudi relations.   The bottom line is that Trump will not do anything to damage current US/Saudi relations and endanger Middle East peace, the stalemating of Iran, and keep Russia and China from furthering their power in the region.  

Keep in mind that Iran, Turkey, Russia, China, our Progressive-Left and its media, and others are all aligned to:

  • Reinstate the Iran Nuclear Deal
  • Weaken the US/Saudi relationship
  • Kill any possibility of Israeli/Palestinian peace accord
  • Isolate Israel from its neighbors
  • Embolden the Muslim Brotherhood
  • Bolster Islamist Terrorist and give them a pass to re-engage in their terror activities unfettered 

Then, ask yourself how many American and coalition soldiers have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan by Iranian IEDs!

How many civilians have been slaughtered in Syria by Assad, Russians and Iranians!  Where was Obama’s action!

Where is the outrage when Iran executes gays for merely being gay!

Where is the outrage when al-Qaeda, Boko-Haram, and others literally slaughter innocents on a daily basis!

Where was the outrage by the Progressive-Left media, Obama and Clinton over the killing of our ambassador and three American contractors in Benghazi!

While the killing of a single person is reprehensible, the level of military, diplomatic and economic response must be tempered with US interests first, then the response must be consistent with other responses in similar situations.

Witnessing the Death of The American Constitutional Republic-Part Three

Part Three

Forward

[Note: Due to the need to develop a full understanding of each of the elements that have led to the Death of our Constitutional Republic, this article will contain 3 parts. Below is the Third installment of this article. Part one can be found here: https://wp.me/pY51c-1dw%5D  Part two can be found here:  https://wp.me/pY51c-1dB ]

Definition:  Constitutional Republic;  “A government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law as defined by their agreed upon Constitution.”

Definition:  Death of a Constitutional Republic;  The death then of a Constitutional Republic occurs when the sovereign citizens and their representatives are no longer governed according to their original Constitution and its rule of law.  When the Federal Government exceeds its enumerated powers of its citizens or their States. 


President Obama and the Democrats takeover of the House and Senate in 2008, caused the Progressive-Left to salivate that their 70 years of transforming our education systems into propaganda incubators, and their almost total dominance of the main stream media TV and Print media, that they could eliminate our Constitutional Republic and their Progressive-Left Socialist “Utopia” could be installed in its place.  Then when Obama was able to get ultra-left justices Kagan and Sotomayor confirmed to the Supreme Court, the Progressive-Left thought they had won it all.  They had control over all three branches of government and had added a number of hard-core left-wing judges to the federal courts.  Nothing could stand in their way and soon their social and political re-engineering of our nation would be complete, without firing a shot.  

Whoops, Where Did the Tea Parties Come From!

 While the Progressive-Left was reveling in their electoral successes, the conservative grass-roots suddenly popped up, abandoned the Elitist Republican Party, and took root in the form of the Tea Party Movement.  The movement began in 2009 and gained a lot of momentum prior to the 2010 Mid-Term elections when the Republican Party took back the House, then took back the Senate in 2014, in spite of Obama being elected in 2012.  The Republican control of the House and Senate was a direct affront to Obama and his Progressive-Left push to eliminate our Constitutional Republic.

Obama and the Progressive-Left did not stand Idly by and let the Tea Party movement continue to grow and prosper.  As the movement spread across America, more and more Tea Party chapters began to spring up.  In order for a chapter to raise money to fund their organization, they had to obtain permission from the IRS to organize as a 501-C, non tax, corporation that would allow contributions to be tax-deductible to the donor and non taxable to the Tea Party chapter.  Obama’s administration quickly clamped down on approving new Tea Party Chapters by slow walking their IRS application.  They were so effective that by the 2012 Presidential election, the Tea Party movement was pretty much stymied and now ineffective. 

To make matters worse, the Republican slate of Presidential candidates were made up of old guard elite Republicans and Romney eventually won the nomination.  The grass root conservatives had been totally turned off by McCain in 2008 and were disgusted to have to vote for Romney in 2012.  The Republicans did hold the house in 2012 but the Progressive-Left kept control of the Senate.  Gridlock ensued but the Republican control of the House kept Obama from completing his total transformation of America with the elimination the of our Constitutional Republic.

But, Obama and the left were able to elevate global warming, gay marriage, and acceptance of transgenderism, to national prominence and acceptance, albeit forced; and to use race, gender and sexual preference to totally divide the country without passing any meaningful legislation to “perfect” these social changes.  While the Republican elites in Congress were unable and unwilling to stand up to Obama and the Progressive-Left, the remnants of the Tea Party were morphing into an “America First” coalition even if they did not realize it at the time.

Keeping Obama’s Legacy Moving Forward after 2016:

The Progressive-Left were not at all panicked that they lost the House and Senate in 2014 and were confident that their packing of Federal Courts and their stalemate on the Supreme Court would at least allow them to win marginal battles when needed.  After all, Chief Justice Roberts rewrote Obamacare for the Democrats and saved it in spite of its obvious unconstitutional underpinnings.  All they needed to do was to pass the Presidency to Hillary Clinton and she would keep the silent coup advancing towards the goal of eliminating our Constitutional Republic.  

The 2016 election was seen as one where Hillary (HRC) would be crowned the Democrat Candidate and the Republicans would nominate a vanilla “conservative” as a sacrificial lamb at the altar of HRC.  What the Progressive-Left, their media, and the Republican Elites did not count on was one Donald J. Trump!  Trump had advocated an America First agenda for over 20 years decrying the Iraq war, high taxes and stifling regulations, globalism, unfair trade deals, open borders, political correctness and everything else the now underground Tea Party America First diehards embraced.   These patriots could not believe their ears when they heard Trump’s announcement to run and his positions on these issues.  The leftist media scoffed and the elite political pundits, elite Republicans, and globalists of every stripe discounted this brash talking New Yorker and his anti Progressive-Left, pro America rhetoric.  By November 9th, 2016, none of these groups were scoffing any longer.

Progressive-Left Plan B-There Wasn’t a Plan B!

HRC’s loss to Donald Trump was the end of the Progressive-Left Silent Coup as their drive towards State Legalism was melting before their eyes.  State Legalism can only work if you control the State which the Progressive-Left just lost.  The Progressive-Left never imagined losing to Trump and were not prepared to face the consequences. The “Republicans” now controlled the Presidency, the House and the Senate, and in the next four years would be able to replace at least two Supreme Court Justices with literalist, conservative Justices.  Further, many of the Obama regulations and Executive Orders would soon be erased by the new America First President.  The only chance the Progressive-Left had was to bombard the new President with unending investigations surrounding his campaign and “Russia Collusion” by enlisting the “Never-Trumpers” in the House, Senate and federal bureaucracies.  They almost succeeded until President Trump was able to shame Congress into passing his signature Tax cuts that followed his evisceration of business killing regulations.  The ensuing economic boom caused even those who hated Trump on the right to get behind his coattails as they neared the 2018 Mid-Term elections.

On the Left, there was only disbelief that all of their hopes and dreams of killing our Constitutional Republic and replacing it with their Utopian Progressive-Left Socialism by the end of the first Clinton Term.  Their media and academics went completely insane in their denouncement of Trump and his agenda throwing every left-wing tactic they had in their quiver at him to no avail.  To date, the Progressive-Left media coverage of the Trump Administration has averaged 92% negative coverage.  In spite of this, President Trump’s approval ratings are higher than Obama’s at the same time in his presidency!

If you can’t control the masses at the ballot box, what else is there?  VIOLENCE.

Obama and the Progressive-left had sown the seeds of discontent in their base using racism, sexism, islamophobia, homophobia etc. to divide their base and some of the country.  They also created groups committed to sow anarchy in our society such as Occupy, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa.  These groups are pledged to use violence and any other method to shut down free speech and assembly that is not condoned by the Progressive-Left.  Their media have taken up their cause and provided press cover that paints their unlawful activities as just and needed to stem the evil Trump agenda.  The rhetoric of the Progressive-Left controlled Democrat Party now calls for physical action against their counterparts on the right and their supporters.  The results of their rhetoric are becoming all too apparent!

The Result of Progressive-Left Violence! Just the Beginning-Silent Coup Morphs into Violent AnarchySee the source image

It has only been a little over a year ago when a Left-Wing Sanders Supporter fired 200 rounds at Republicans practicing for a Congressional Charity baseball game.  Steve Scalise suffered life-threatening, and permanently disabling, wounds.  If it had not been for his security detail assigned to him as a member of House Leadership, many more could have been seriously wounded or killed.  This is the face of a Silent Coup morphing into a violent anarchy in an attempt to permanently destroy our Constitutional Republic.

Since the Scalise tragedy, Democrat leadership and its Senate and House member have doubled and tripled down in their rhetoric calling for physical confrontation to stop Trump.  Republican Senators, Congressmen and their staffs have been the target of physical altercations.  Even Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and advisor Steven Miller have been removed from restaurants and harassed.  What the Democrat Progressive-Left and their media have been preaching is that violence against Trump and his allies is JUSTIFIED AND NECESSARY to allow them to overthrow our Constitutional Republic.

See the source image

The Rule of Law is being challenged by the Rule of the Progressive-Left Mob!  The Progressive-Left has used Obama’s community organizer skills to pit inner-city minorities against the police.  Black Lives Matter are directly challenging police authority and in left-wing run municipalities they have intimidated the local police into inaction.  

See the source imageThe Progressive-Left is pushing their Open Border argument by vilifying Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and calling for the end to this vital law enforcement agency.  Ice is responsible for tracking down illegal immigrants who have committed felonies and deporting them.  The Progressive-Left is also making all of their left controlled municipalities, counties and even States to become Sanctuaries for Illegal Immigrants.

See the source image

The Progressive-Left Democrat Party and their complicit media are not even intelligent enough to see the powder keg they have created nor have any idea how to stop it when it spirals out of control into VIOLENT ANARCHY.  I lived through the violence of the 60’s and 70’s and the base of that movement is no where as deep as the current Progressive-Left mob.  Also, the technical advancements in weaponry, explosives, communications and the access to the Progressive-Left media adds an order of magnitude of violence to this current drive towards anarchy.  The cultural war of the 60’s and 70’s were centered around the Vietnam War and some social causes.  The current Progressive-Left anarchy is centered around totally “transforming” this country, eliminate the rule of law, eliminate the US Constitution, and subjugating all of those who believe in this country by force if necessary.

The Progressive-Left has Lost its Political Power, All that is Left is Violence to Regain this Power.

The Upcoming Mid-Term Election

During the Justice Kavanagh “confirmation process”, you had a front row seat to how the Left and its media suspends the belief in the rule of law and convinces its followers that totally disparaging a moral, and good human being is justified for the “good” of their cause.  They told you that innocent until proven guilty does not apply to their cause.  They told you that a mere terrible accusation is sufficient to disqualify and withhold Senatorial Consent for a Presidential nominee.  They paraded more than three “accusers” in front of you nightly telling stories of high school rape parties and other forms of deviant behavior by our nominee.  They told you that Kavanagh was not worthy as he was nominated by an unworthy President.  If they can do this to the President of the United States and his nominee, WHAT ARE THEY CAPABLE OF DOING TO YOU FOR FORCE YOU INTO SUBMISSION!   Just go on social media if you don’t think that these tactics worked on many Americans who bought into their slander hook, line and sinker! 

If you think the level of violence and rhetoric coming from the Progressive-Left is over the top today, just wait.  If the republicans retain majorities in the House and Senate, the Progressive-Left will unleash their violence against all who oppose them.  I am not talking about screaming of someone in a restaurant, I am talking about all out assaults against law enforcement, members of the Administration, members of Congress and all who support the Administration’s America First Agenda!  The Progressive-Left will have lost any hope regaining power and instituting their Progressive-Left Socialist agenda.  They will have lost all if the power of their identity politics.  They will have lost their power over the judiciary for decades at all levels of the federal courts. 

The first waves of violence will be aimed at the Trump administration and its supporters, but then it will turn inward against its Democrat Party leaders who wrote political checks they could not cash in at the ballot box!  The Democrat party leaders will be bifurcated between the New Wave Progressive-Left Socialist Anarchist and the old line Progressive-Left Democrats.  The latter will be threatened then exiled and subjected to the same levels of derision and violence as the Trump faction.  Who knows where the media will land.  The New wave Progressive-Left Socialist Anarchist will have an Occupy Wall Street component that abhors the globalist communications wall street elitists and thus be a threat to these communications behemoths.  They will use social media to spew their hatred and plans for more violence and bypass the Left Wing Media.

Outcome?

President Trump will have very tough choices to make just as Governor Reagan did in the 1960’s.  Then Governor Reagan had to finally use lethal force to put down what would be seen today as a minor uprising on the University of California campus at Berkeley.  In all, there was one fatality and 128 wounded with hundreds of local police and CHP Officers deployed followed by over 2,700 National Guard troops sent in to hold the violence in check.  The video below describes the event and Reagan’s reaction in a press briefing.

President Trump and the Department of Justice will face a national violent coup attempt by armed anarchists rather than an uprising on a single campus.  President Trump is hamstrung by the fact that he does not really have a Department of Justice he can rely on so he will have to quell the violence without much support from the DOJ!

One thing is clear, we are at a Constitutional cross-road that will be accentuated during the Mid-Term election on November 6, 2018.  If the Republicans keep control over both houses of Congress, all bets are off in terms of violent uprisings by the New Wave Progressive-Left Socialists.  If the Democrats take the House and the Republicans retain the Senate, then the Democrats will spend the next two years attempting to malign and ultimately impeach President Trump and who knows who else. 

The New Wave Progressive-Left Socialists will not stand idly by and let the Democrat politicians stand regular order.  They will increase their resistance and level of violence against those on the Right and especially law enforcement.  The old guard Democrats will have no sway over this mob.  The Democrat Party may well disappear as we knew it after the Mid-Terms as the bifurcation between the Progressive-Left Democrats and the New Wave Progressive-Left Socialists is inevitable.  The old guard naively coddled their version of a Velociraptor until it grew up and ate them!

I really see no scenario where violent confrontation is not part of the picture.

Witnessing the Death of The American Constitutional Republic-Part Two

Part Two
See the source imageForward

[Note:  Due to the need to develop a full understanding of each of the elements that have led to the Death of our Constitutional Republic, this article will contain 3 parts.  Below is the second installment of this article.  Part one can be found here:  https://wp.me/pY51c-1dw]

Definition:  Constitutional Republic;  “A government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law as defined by their agreed upon Constitution.”

Definition:  Death of a Constitutional Republic;  The death then of a Constitutional Republic occurs when the sovereign citizens and their representatives are no longer governed according to their original Constitution and its rule of law.  When the Federal Government exceeds its enumerated powers of its citizens or their States. 


In Part One, we explored how our Founders crafted our government out of what would become the US Constitution.  We found that they established three distinct, BUT NOT CO-EQUAL branches of Government; the Legislative Branch consisting of the Senate and the House of Representatives; The Executive Branch, and lastly the Judicial Branch. 

All three Branches had very specific powers and LIMITS and no single Branch could usurp the powers of an other Branch or those that were assigned solely to the individual States.  We also discussed how the Judicial Branch and the Executive Branch and its agencies, have usurped Legislative powers from the Legislature.  And, how the Legislative Branch has done nothing to stop this erosion of their Constitutional powers!  Lately, since the election of President Trump, we have seen the Judiciary attempt to usurp Executive Powers by lower courts finding specific Executive Orders by President Trump to be unconstitutional. 

We are now living in a Post-Constitutional Republic and are allowing our Constitution to be twisted and turned to the point where a Silent Coup has taken place and given way to State Legalism.  (State Legalism is when the State, an oligarchy of a few powerful people and their followers in government and the media, replaces the Constitutional Rule of Law with its own Legalism by coercing obedience and eliminating the citizens’ faith in our Constitutional Republic.)

Primary Contributors to the Silent Coup & the Rise of State Legalism

Controlling Thought and Speech:

In order to break down an institution such as our Constitutional Republic, you must gradually seize control over the thoughts and speech of the people.  This can be done by brute force or by gradually eroding core beliefs, principles, and values to the point where disparate people come together to embrace a revised form of their original institutions and government, their belief systems, their principles, and their values.  The Silent Coup in the US has come about using the latter approach but now the Progressive Left is embracing the tactics of force and intimidation to finish off our Republic once and for all!  We just witnessed the despicable treatment of Judge Kavanagh at the hands of the Progressive-Left as they smeared this person with accusations that could not be proved and suspended his right to the presumption of innocence and almost kept him from being confirmed to the US Supreme Court! 

See the source image

This is just one example of brute force tactics being employed by the Progressive-Left since the election of President Trump in 2016. 

How was the Progressive-Left able to stage this Silent Coup? 

There are two major institutions that the Progressive-Left  gradually seized control of to use to change our core beliefs, principles, and values.  The first was the Media and the second was our Educational Systems.  

Control over the Media:

It wasn’t that long ago that we all received our broadcast news from one of the three TV networks, NBC, ABC, and CBS.  Radio was limited to music and in some markets Christian broadcasting.  It was easy for the Progressive-Left to gradually insert itself into the editorial boards of these networks and gradually begin to stifle conservative content and pump pure Progressive-Left ideology into our living rooms every night.  

See the source image

Print media was a little more difficult as there were a lot of newspapers at the local, market, and national level.  Gradually the Progressive-Left syndicated newspapers and magazines into large media groups so both print and broadcast news are editorially the same.  Ultimately, print media and broadcast media were folded into mega-media, multi-national corporations owned by Progressive-Left companies such as Disney, Comcast, Bertelsmann, Viacom, CBS and others.  With few exceptions, like Fox News, the “news” is tightly controlled by the Progressive-Left and they print or spew hard left positions on every event that impacts our daily lives.  Radio was also sucked up in this Progressive-Left media consolidation.  

Three exceptional events stopped a total media takeover by the Progressive-left.  One was the birth of the internet, the arrival of cable networks, and talk radio as pioneered by Rush Limbaugh. 

The Internet:  The internet has somewhat eluded the total control by the Progressive-Left even though they control the major social networks and search engines.  Free thought is still able to elude capture by the Progressive-Left on the internet but not from a lack of trying via ‘Net Neutrality’, the ‘Fairness Doctrine’ and other legislative and regulatory control over internet content.  

Cable Channels:  The Progressive-Left quickly scrambled to gobble up as many of the cable channels as possible in order to maintain its stranglehold over “news” and thought content.  This even included sports channels that have now become almost exclusively political thought control outlets.  

Talk Radio:  Rush Limbaugh’s burst onto the scene in the late 1980’s cornering the conservative audience market to this day.  Since then, hundreds of conservative talk radio shows have sprung up and conservative talk radio dominates the talk radio genre to this day.  The Progressive-Left continues to try to stifle conservative talk radio to this day but in spite of their efforts it is a thriving medium today.

The huge impact of these three events has kept conservative voices and thoughts alive and is a considerable factor in staving off the completion of the Progressive-Left Silent Coup.  They made possible the birth of the Tea Party movement that ultimately spawned President Trump’s America First conservative movement.

Control Over Education:

Over the past 100 years, the Progressive-Left has sought to totally take over all facets of our educational systems in order to choke off independent thought and to erode our commitments to our core beliefs, principles, and values.  Since the Progressive-Left uses the Democrat Party as its political arm, re-writing and teaching historical revisionism was at the forefront of their efforts.  Slavery is now the fault of Republicans;  Jim Crow laws are now blamed on conservatives; and all statues of our Founding Fathers who may have owned slaves are to be demolished.  Homosexual, Bi-sexual, Transgender and other “sexual preferences” are now taught in grade school as acceptable if not preferred life styles, and “sexual preference” has been ingrained into our society and laws as being equal to race, sex, religion, or national origin.  References to our Founding Fathers as heroes have been erased from textbooks along with many of our military conquests and military heroes.  

In order to create division and control between our citizens, the Progressive-Left has deemed “victimhood” to be pervasive and the fault of the “white privileged male class”.  They have created groups and isolated individuals into these groups as classes of victims to the point where they overlap and conflict with one another.  Sexism, misogyny, racism, islamophobia, homophobia etc. have been used to coral individuals and point them towards the “white privileged male class” (who are also conservative) as their enemy and those that are keeping them in poverty and robbing them of their rights and opportunities!  

The Progressive-Left control over our educational systems is deep and pervasive.  Global Warming is taught as a fact and Intelligent Design is mocked as a religious hoax.  Economic theory emphasizes socialism and all forms of anti-capitalism.  The rights of individuals is now superseded by the rights of the masses.  Property is no longer an individual’s right as all property is ultimately owned and controlled by the “State”.  

Combination of Media and Education!

In summary, the Progressive-Left uses their control over our Educational Systems to indoctrinate our children, then uses the Media to reinforce the indoctrination onto the adult population as reinforcement of their learned “principles and values“.  The media also is “there” to tell the people how to think about current events.  How a confirmation process for a candidate to the Supreme Court is actually just a job interview and the candidate is not entitled to due process.  If the candidate is accused of reprehensible behavior, the candidate is not worthy of confirmation as the accusation is serious enough to deem him or her as unacceptable, regardless of the fact that the accusation cannot be substantiated!  

The Media and our Educational Systems are also used to shame you into beliefs that you know intuitively to be just plain wrong.  A woman must have total control ever their own body including the right to kill their unborn child.  After all, it is the woman’s body!  Everyone should have the right to determine their own sex regardless of their birth biology!  A Christian baker must not refuse to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple even though the baker has a religious objection to same-sex marriage.  A man who “believes” he is a woman should be able to use the same restroom as your teenage daughter!  Roe v. Wade is settled law even though it is based on an individual woman’s right to privacy that is nowhere to be found in the US Constitution as a constitutional right!  ETC., ETC., ETC. The new Progressive-Left mantra-of-the-day is first sold in the media then quickly inserted into our schools’ textbooks!

Freedoms Lost:

See the source image

The Progressive-Left use of our Educational Systems and the media is also used to kill your constitutional freedoms.  Oftentimes they redefine the Constitutional freedom such as “freedom of religion” which is actually stated in the Constitution asCongress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion“.  The Progressive-Left has convinced us that this really means that you cannot express your religious views in a public space that is owned by the government!  Not so.  The Constitution guarantees us Freedom to express our religion free from government intervention regardless of location and that Congress cannot create any restrictions on religious freedom and cannot impose any religion on the country.  The Founding Fathers came from Europe where Religious was State sponsored and controlled and intentionally made sure this did not carry over to the new nation.  Why does the Progressive-Left want to pigeon-hole religion?  To make sure they can limit Religious thought and moral values and ensure that the “State” principles and values supersede any free moral thoughts and values based on Christianity especially.  

Freedom of Speech is also under siege by the Progressive-Left and their media-educational complex.  Conservative speech on college campuses all the way down to kindergarten is not permitted and those who attempt to have the voices heard are scorned or even attacked physically.  Free Speech is the number one enemy of the Progressive-Left and they will not stop until all Speech is their Speech!

The Second Amendment is under constant attack by the Progressive-Left.  Why would they want to limit firearms?  Remember, they are unfolding their Silent Coup right before your eyes.  Once the Silent Coup has played out, then a violent coup will be implemented and mop up the remnants of those who value their freedom.  Armed resistance would only serve to stand in their way of their final coup!


The final installment of this series will detail out the status of the Silent Coup and State Legalism and what will happen next.  It will also discuss how we must fight back and specifically what we need to do. 

The upcoming Mid-Term elections are vital if we are to reverse the Silent Coup and erase all of the advances towards State Legalism.  If we do not maintain conservative control over the House of Representatives and the Senate in 2018, the very survival of our Constitutional Republic could be in jeopardy.

Witnessing the Death of The American Constitutional Republic-Part One


See the source image



[Note:  Due to the need to develop a full understanding of each of the elements that have led to the Death of our Constitutional Republic, this article will contain 3 parts.  Below is the first installment of this article]

What is the Death of a Constitutional Republic?

Definition:  Constitutional Republic;  A government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law as defined by their agreed upon Constitution.”

The Founders of this great nation were made up of individuals residing in virtually independent “colonial” States with power concentrated in these States and not in a centralized Federal power. The Founders to a man fought hard in constructing our Constitution so that a Federal Government could not threaten the autonomy of its individual States.  They crafted a Constitution that spelled out a narrow set of powers that would be vested in the Federal Government with every other power left to the States.  

Our Constitution was crafted by our Founders to eliminate the possibility of a monarchy (government by one) or an oligarchy (government by the few), to foreclose on the notion that the sovereign citizen could become subservient to the government rather than the government being subservient to its citizens.  Our Founders gave us a roadmap to how they envisioned the power hierarchy of the Government to be constructed;

  • First, Article One describes the powers of the people as exercised by their elected representatives in the Senate and the House of Representatives;
  • Second, Article Two established the office of the President and his executive powers;
  • Third, the Founders established the Supreme Court and defined their powers and how the lower courts could be created by the President and the Congress;
  • Article Four they defined the powers of the States
  • Other Articles cover how to amend the Constitution, the absolute requirement for all elected and appointed government officials to swear an oath to follow and defend the Constitution (Not the Government), and then how to ratify the Constitution and any follow-on amendments.   

The Founders vested the ability to create and/or change Federal laws solely in our legislative branch of government, the Senate and the House of Representatives.  This was to ensure that the citizens direct representatives held sway over the Central Government.  Next, the Founders created an executive Branch, led by a President, with powers to carry out the laws of the land; exercise civilian power of the military; the power to create a cabinet or super board of directors to help him decide on courses of action or inaction, the power to pardon anyone charged with or convicted of federal crimes; to make treaties with other sovereign nations with the advice and consent of the Senate; and appoint judges to the Supreme Court, Ambassadors, and all other officers of the Federal Government with the advice and consent of the Senate.  In order to preclude the President committing “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”, the Founders gave the power to impeach and remove the President to the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The final branch of Government was the Supreme Court that was initially defined with limited responsibilities and powers.  It is important to note that the Founders did not envision that this Court would be superior to the Legislative or the Executive branches of the government.  The first sentence in Article Three that defined the court stated; The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority.  It did not say nor has it been amended to say that this Court has the power to DEEM A DULY ADOPTED AND SIGNED LAW AS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!  This power was given to the Supreme Court BY ITSELF in the Marbury v Madison Supreme Court Decision in 1803.  This is key to understand how critical the Supreme Court has been in setting up the demise of our Constitutional Republic.  The 9 men and women in Black on the Supreme Court form an Oligarchic ruling class… 

The death then of a Constitutional Republic occurs when the sovereign citizens and their representatives are no longer governed according to their original Constitution and its rule of law.  When the Federal Government exceeds its enumerated powers of its citizens or their States. 

Death can occur as a result of one or more of the Federal Branches of Government usurping dominant power over the others and the citizens and their States or two of more of the Branches working in concert to usurp dominant power over the others and the citizens and their States.  Our current demise has come at the hands of an oligarchic Supreme Court; An executive Branch that has legislated via unchallenged Executive Orders; Departments and bureaucracies within the Executive Branch that have bastardized the rule of law, used espionage capabilities in an unlawful manner against our own government and its citizens, usurped legislative and penal powers to be used against its own citizens; and sadly, abetted by a legislative branch that has sat by and allowed the Supreme Court and the Executive Branch and its unlawful departments to destroy our Constitutional Republic by consolidating all of its citizens’ power into itself! 

What Does the Death of Our Constitutional Republic Look Like, The Rise of State Legalism

Our Constitutional Republic is being eliminated by the rise of State Legalism.  State Legalism is when the State, an oligarchy of a few powerful people and their followers in government and the media, replaces the Constitutional Rule of Law with its own Legalism by coercing obedience and eliminating the citizens’ faith in our Constitutional Republic.  At best, this is a silent coup but it can morph into a violent coup if challenged!

Today, we see the Federal Judiciary Branch legislating from the Bench at every turn and thwarting duly adopted and executed Federal Laws.  We have seen, during the Obama and other Administrations, the Executive Branch issuing Executive Orders that are not clarifying how to execute duly adopted and executed Federal Laws by actually writing or re-writing Federal Law.  We have seen that the DOJ and its FBI selectively applying the law in political partisan fashion and using Foreign Intelligence laws against our own citizens for political gain and/or retribution.  In other cases, they have used their legal authorities to exonerate otherwise guilty parties out of political partisanship.  This has extended to the IRS, the CIA, the DNI and other powerful departments and agencies.  Congress seems to be incapable of asserting itself in a meaningful way by either enacting overriding legislation or enforcing its oversight powers.  In short, a mere handful, relatively speaking, of unlawful Federal officials and employees, have a chokehold over the Federal government and all US citizens.  

This silent coup has taken place with the assistance and absolute concurrence with the majority of the media and has been made possible by corrupting our educational systems.  In order to create the illusion that evil is good the education system and the media have changed our social and moral values to the point of accepting moral relativism into our society. 

This coup has also been supported and financed by a cabal of international business interest who value their global financial interests over US interests and in fact have used the resources of the US itself to siphon off US power and treasure to other countries such as China.  They have also used the precepts of Neo-Conservatism to actually topple foreign governments to unsettle parts of the glove and allow them to buy damaged assets at cents on the dollar.  (for more on Neo-Conservatism, go to https://wp.me/pY51c-Yc)  

To summarize, the will of the people has been and the power of the people envisioned by our Founders has been usurped by a relatively low number of people.  They have seized control by retooling our educational system to teach historical revisionism, pit one group against another, and to virtually dumb down our youth.  At the same time, they have bought up most of the media and use it to sell lies and propaganda to the people.  In 2016, the people elected Donald Trump to stop this silent coup via State Legalism.  The Key question is whether Donald Trump can stop this silent coup and reverse the march towards State Legalism.

In the next installment, we will take a deeper look into how we got to this point…

A.G. Sessions-Abetting or Leading a Lawless DOJ and FBI

 

See the source imageA.G. Sessions, at best, is abetting/permitting a lawless DOJ/FBI to exist and focus on an all out assault of President Trump, OR he is directing the all out assault of President Trump. 

Almost immediately after he took the oath of office to ascend to the office of the Attorney General, Sessions recused himself from:

I have now decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matter relating in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States.”  

In doing so, Sessions stated that he came to this decision after consulting with “ETHICS” specialists inside of the DOJ and then erroneously cited the federal regulation regarding “Disqualification arising from personal or political relationship”.  This regulation, (28 CFR Sec. 45.2), ONLY PERTAINS TO A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION OR PROSECUTION!  The subsequent Rosenstein/Mueller investigation into the Donald Trump was not a criminal matter but a COUNTERINTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATION that is NOT subject to 28 CFR Sec. 45.2. 

Per the disgraced ex-FBI director James Comey in his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Comey stated:  “I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”  

Is Sessions totally devoid of the ability to understand our laws and regulations?  Is the DOJ intentionally putting Sessions in a box to keep him from assisting his President?  Did Sessions recuse himself so Rosenstein his Deputy, could wage a war against Trump and his family without interference?   Remember A.G. Holder saying that he was Obama’s WINGMAN!  Sessions is a lot of things but certainly NOT Trump’s Wingman!

If anyone inside of the DOJ is conflicted and should recuse himself from everything involving a Trump investigation it is Rod Rosenstein himself.  This political hack actually signed the 3rd FISA warrant extension allowing the Trump team to be wire tapped and all electronic and other communication surveilled.  Then this hack created a phony excuse to designate Robert the saint Mueller as a DOJ Special Council!  And the DOJ ETHICS experts have not told Rosenstein to recuse himself!!! 

Rosenstein, the Session’s Anti-Trump Henchman:

See the source image

But, there is more!  (This travesty of justice is like a midnight TV commercial for Ginsu knives!) 

  • Donald Trump’s pick to head the Department of Justice Southern District of New York was Geoffrey Berman.  (Left in the picture above)  (This office is the office that is attacking the President’s advisors and staff without mercy including Michael Cohen!) 
  • In order to insure that the Mueller investigation into “Everything Trump” would survive Mueller being fired by Trump, Rosenstein turned over the Cohen case and others to this office. 
  • BUT, before doing so, he literally coerced Berman, a Trump pick, to RECUSE himself of anything to do with Trump! 
  • Then, “Everything Trump” would be handled by the 2nd chair, Robert Khuzami,  an anti-Trump prosecutor who was a friend of the Trump Hating Democrat Appointee Preet Bharara who Trump fired.
  • Rosenstein now has a two tiered federal prosecution hit team against Trump!
  • One Last point, Rosenstein is the one who recommended the current FBI director, Christopher Wray (far right in the picture above) to Trump and Sessions!  Now Rosenstein can direct Wray’s FBI on who to attack next!

So, Rosenstein, Mueller et al have created a prosecutorial web against Trump that could have only been possible by Sessions recusal!  If Sessions was really Trump’s A.G., he could have, and still could, shut this whole charade down! 

So, I will leave you to decide, is Sessions a purist who recused himself on principle or a political hack who his abetting this entire Anti-Trump Which Hunt!

I have to go throw up now!

2018 Mid-Term Elections-Turning Point for America

 

America and our Republic are at a cross-road and its ultimate direction and survival may hinge on the outcome of the 2018 Mid-Term elections. If Republicans do not maintain control of the House of Representative and gain seats in the House, Trump will be blocked at best and impeached at worst!  Why?  Obama had taken the US to the edge of economic, political, social, moral and cultural collapse after years of “Progressive-Left” erosion of our Constitutional Freedoms, Economic dominance and moral world leadership.   The election of President Trump represented a rejection of the Progressive-Left by our electorate and Trump singlehandedly became the single most threat to the Progressive-Left’s world-wide dominance.  In a mere year and 9 months, President Trump has all but erased the years of the Progressive-Left cancerous devouring of our Republic and the Progressive-Left wounded beast is seeking to devour and eliminate the rekindling of our Democratic Republic.

Systemic Progressive-Left Infiltration:

The Progressive-Left for years has sought to totally control the collective knowledge base of our citizens.  The Progressive-Left had two main tools they sought to dominate; one, the education of our youth, and two, the media to further the educational indoctrination of our citizens and reinforce what we “learned” from leftist teachers and professors.  By the year 2000, the Progressive-Left had all but total control of the content and message for both tools.  In order to effectively ensure that the indoctrination was complete, the Progressive-Left had to tear down the moral fabric of the nation by scorning religion and faith, and use moral relativism to break down our sense of “right and wrong”.  They also loaded up Federal and State agencies, especially the courts and the Federal and State Prosecutorial and Investigative bodies, with hard Left advocates who put Progressive-Left politics above the Constitution and our rule of law.

Enter President Trump in 2016

The left has all but succeeded in their quest to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM the United States as of November, 2016, sound familiar?  But, our citizens had enough of these corrosive Progressive-Left policies in 2016 and elected a total outsider who was beholden to no political interest groups or ideologies other than America First and the re-establishment of Constitutional Rule of Law.  The Progressive-Left could not stand for Trump to succeed and have and are pulling out all of the stops to destroy President Trump and all of his accomplishments including the roll-back of the Progressive-Left agenda.

Today’s Political War Against President Trump and America First!

The Progressive-Left had already concocted a game plan to rid this nation of the Trump scourge even prior to his election.  The DOJ and the FBI had colluded with the DNC and the Clinton campaign to first of all not allow Trump to be elected and if he was, force him from office!  The Left had fabricated damaging reports (dossier) on aberrant Trump behavior and collusion with the Russian government.  They used these falsehoods to obtain a FISA warrant to use to spy on the Trump campaign and even pay “spies” to infiltrate the Trump Campaign.  They even used the firing of the FBI director Comey to justify the appointment of their ace-in-the-hole special prosecutor to turn Trump’s personal, professional and political life upside down! 

Plan B

But, the Russian Collusion hoax petered out as did their constant Stormy Daniels stories and allegations.   So, Plan B had to be put in play by Mueller which was to use Mueller’s ability to bring charges against key Trump campaign allies and now attack even personal and business friends, staff and affiliates of President Trump in order to gain true or false allegations of wrongdoing by Trump!  They have even forced Trump’s CFO to take an immunity agreement in exchange for information in support of claims by Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen!  During this onslaught, Mueller performed early morning ARMED raids against a Trump former campaign manager and his wife as well as Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.  Mueller even seized Cohen’s client records and information and shredded ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE! 

In short, since the Progressive-Left now totally controls the DOJ, the FBI and the New York Attorney General’s office, Mueller is free to use any means he can to destroy Donald Trump and annihilate the US Constitution in the process!  

During the next 80 or so days, you will hear non-stop leaks out of the Mueller investigation on details from Trump’s business dealings, personal dealings, banking relationships, etc..  None of which has anything to do with Trump’s candidacy or Presidency!  It is all to smear his name and if the Progressive-Left takes over the House of Representatives, Impeach President Trump!  Impeachment (indictment) by the House of Representatives only takes a simple majority of 218 votes while the Senate requires a 2/3rds vote or 67 votes to convict.  You may say, well, they would never get 67 votes in the Senate!  Remember, the Senate is full of RINO Republicans who may shift their support to convict on the impeachment unless we elect Trump supporting senatorial candidates in the Mid-Terms.

It is imperative that everyone get out and support Trump friendly candidates in the Mid-Term elections.  The booming economy, the measures to insure our military world checkmate against aggressors, our control of our borders and our culture, and the very future of your children and grandchildren is at stake.  If the Progressive-Left and their executioner Mueller succeed, this nation will slide back into the oblivion of meritocracy or worse that you experienced under Obama.  This is not hyperbole, it is fact!

Your Choice in November, 2018
