Your Country, Your Choice… Constitutional Republic Vs Deep State Oligrchy

See the source image

You, and every other US citizen, are witnessing a flagrant attempt to negate Article II of the US Constitution, the section that enumerates the powers of the Executive Branch of our government; and supplant it with an oligarchy of career diplomatic and intelligence community bureaucrats known as the Deep State.  The key question will come down to whether this blatant attempt to abet an outright overthrow the Executive Branch may be a felony under 18 U.S.C.A. § 2384, Seditious Conspiracy.   

Before we go to the current attempts to overthrow President Trump, lets look back at how the “deep state” was created.

See the source image

  1.  Congressional Abdication of Duty:  Over the years, Congress has passed more and more laws that have allowed, ironically, the Executive Branch to “flesh” out, expand, and self-interpret laws by creating regulations that ostensibly define the implementation of the legislative intent.  In reality, the Executive Departments have used this unconstitutional legislative editing to formulate politically biased regulations of duly enacted legislation.  Ostensibly, Congress is supposed to use its oversight powers to regulate the regulators but this rarely if ever happens.  Do you really think that any Congress member actually reads all of the federal regulations that are created?  So, while the US Constitution, in Article I, grants all legislative powers to Congress, Congress has allowed the Executive Branch bureaucrats to usurp this power and twist legislation into their political will.  When was the last time you saw Congress sue the Executive Branch over regulatory overreach?  Never.
  2.  Executive Department Bureaucratic Legislation:  With a license to steal from Congress in interpreting, then regulating, legislation, including how money is spent or not spent, the Executive Branch bureaucracy soon became the true power within the US Government even though they have no Constitutional authority to do so.  JUST THINK, THEY REPLACED ARTICLE I AND ARTICLE II OF THE US CONSTITUTION WITH THEIR OWN SELF GRANTED AUTHORITY!  To make matters worse from a conservative constitutional perspective, leftist Presidents have hired their political appoints as full time bureaucrats within these executive branch departments before they leave office.  This creates a permanent, left-leaning if not outright leftist, permanent bureaucracy that grows and infects more and more as time goes on.
  3.  Enter the Intelligence Communities:  Over time, due to foreign entanglements, wars, and cold wars, the American people were fed numerous justifications for building up both domestic and foreign spying capabilities.  Lets not even use the word, “intelligence”.  Bill Barr was right, lets just call it SPYING.  In sprite of congressional attempts to place controls over the Intelligence Community, (IC), Congress once again failed to perform oversight over the vast capabilities of these 17 or so agencies.  Following 9-11 and the birth of the Patriot Act, coupled with Orwellian advances in technology, electronic and visual spying on US citizens and foreigners, the IC became the ultimate political weapon to be used against its own government.  The IC learned quickly that by scaring citizens with threats of terrorism they could pressure congress to hand over more and more unfettered power to the IC.  One of the most scary tools that came out of this overreach was the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.  This allows the executive branch to literally spy on US citizens and foreigners as long as they get the approval of the FISA courts.  How hard is this to obtain?  Between 1979 through 2015, only 12 of 38,169 spying requests were denied by the FISA courts.  Remember, only the IC investigators/prosecutors are a party to the application.  Their is no due process for the target!  The 4th Amendment was suspended for this process!
  4. Lets Not Forget the Pentagon:  I am extremely pro military and believe to my core that our service men and women are truly honorable and put country before themselves.  But, I do not extend this same belief to the Generals and civilians who run the Pentagon and especially Generals who have retired.  You have witnessed time and time again generals giving interviews, writing op-eds, or even testifying before biased Congressional committees condemning, criticizing, or betraying  their Commander in Chief while they are in uniform, some not, over policy differences.  Our founders specifically created a CIVILIAN led military with the President as its Commander-In-Chief in order to keep a check and balance on the most lethal military force on earth!  While the Pentagon has not yet totally bought into a full membership in the deep state as has the State Department, the CIA, the DOJ, the FBI and the other alphabet IC agencies, they have proven to be less than loyal to their CIC and have overtly thwarted or watered down policy decisions that were not in their power to make.  While the first amendment protects retired generals from voicing their opinions on current foreign policy decisions, they need to look themselves in the mirror and ask themselves whether they would, or could, have voiced those criticisms while on active-duty.  If not, then they should keep quiet for the good of the country.  If the US Military leadership teams up with the deep state regulatory, diplomatic, and IC oligarchy, the US Constitutional Republic is over, PERIOD.
  5. The Press Was the Last Straw:  The main stream media has always had a “left” bent to their reporting.  As we approached the new century, they had become a not so subtle Democrat Party advocate that has morphed into a unabashed left-wing advocacy that is joined at the hip with the left wing of the Democrat Party and global elitist.  They provide cover, or create it, to the endless attacks against a sitting Republican President and even work with the Deep State actors to skew stories in favor of the Deep State and the Democrat Party to work to destroy anyone who challenges their agenda.  With few exceptions today, we do not have a free press.  We have a large population of the press who are merely Democrat leftist propaganda organizations that are joined at the hip wiht multi-national globalist organizations.

So, the Executive Branch bureaucracy has been allowed to grow almost unchecked to the point they function on their own and adhere to policies they think are best for America.  This includes all facets of government including foreign policy, domestic welfare policy, immigration policy, certainly environmental policy, energy policy, fiscal policy, abortion policy, social engineering policy, education policy and certainly military engagement policy.  You almost cannot fire them, remove them, or punish them for misconduct.  They are protected by public sector unions and civil service laws and regulations that shield the deep state almost to the point of impunity.   

As we stated before, the Democrats have learned that before one of their Presidents leave office, they “hire” all of their political appointments into career positions so it is difficult if not impossible for a Republican successor to replace these political appointed deep state employees!  Republicans need to employ the same tactics or change the laws so it is easier to replace employees who hold disdain for the new incumbent.  

The Deep State knows that every 4 or 8 years the will get another political hack to lead their agency that they can ignore and thwart any efforts to curtail their power or implement policies that they disagree with!  They are in their jobs until they want to retire and are rewarded for their loyalty to the deep state, and not the current or even past administration.   Something you should understand is that cabinet and other administrative heads that are appointed by the President, have few if any direct reports other than the person right under them such as the Deputy Attorney General.  All of the department heads in the Department of Justice report to the Deputy and not the actual Attorney General.  The Deputy is usually a “career deep state person” who understands the deep state rules and objectives.  

2016, Turning Point,

Covert Deep State, Led By The IC,

Turns into an Overt Sedition Conspiracy Against a Sitting President

See the source image

During the 2016 Trump Campaign, the media, the deep state, the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign took off their masks and came out full on against the Trump Candidacy.  They were not even sneaky about it!  The DOJ/FBI initiated a “Counter Intelligence” investigation that bypasses the normal checks and balances and allows investigations, leaks and seditious activities to go on below the radar. 

This effort was aided by the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign who funded the creation of the Steele Dossier that really should be called the “Nellie Orr” dossier as she was the primary contributor to its creation.   This coup even enlisted the help of foreign intelligence agencies from at least Australia, Italy, the UK and Italy. The entire Obama administration from the head of the DOJ, FBI, NSC, Ambassador to the UN, the Head of the CIA and other IC members flagrantly unmasked conversations by members of the Trump Team in total violation of the safeguards that are in place to protect such invasions of privacy by members of the administration and the deep state.  

But, this Seditious Conspiracy continued virtually unchecked up through today and continues as it morphed into the current “Impeachment” investigations into President Trump! 

This effort is the very definition of Deep State Sedition against the United States.  Make no mistake, this is not against Donald J. Trump!  It is against the United States of America as a Constitutional Republic.  Donald J. Trump is merely the first officeholder to challenge the Deep State and the Leftist agenda head on and to challenge their very existence in our Republic!

Members of the State Department, the CIA, the NSC, the Military, and even members of the President’s staff continue to leak to their compliant and complicit media to create justifications as to why Trump should be thrown out of office.   They even “attach” these “news” articles, created by their own leaks, as corroborating evidence to support a FISA Warrant application or renewal! This is a full on assault by the Deep State in all of its ugly glory.  

But, what if the impeachment and removal fails and Donald Trump is re-elected for another 4 years?  Trump’s investigations into the Deep State will continue and like an exorcized evil spirit the Deep State will fight back with all of their ugliness.

How Bad Could It Get?

We could go off into all kinds of conspiracy theories but let is suffice to say that the onslaught will continue as it did during the 2nd Reagan term.  The left tried to use the Iran-Contra “scandal” to hamstring the 2nd Reagan term.

If the Republicans do not shoot themselves in the foot and take back the House and hold the Senate, the Left will have to use external pressure to try to stop Trump.  The Deep State will have to use leaks, made up scandals, and international incidents to try to kill Trump’s support.  Inside, agencies, including the Pentagon will continue to thwart the implementation of Trump’s agenda.  He will probably win 80% of the battles which is actually good.  You will probably see the White House staff reduced to a skeleton crew of loyalist.

If the Republicans do shoot themselves in the foot and fail to take back the House but hold the Senate, you will see a re-run of the current impeachment charade.  Worse yet, Trump will not be able to move his agenda forward as Pelosi will continue to stalemate any meaningful Trump agenda efforts.  The courts will continue to be deluged with leftist lawsuits to stop any executive actions by the President.  Healthcare, immigration, tax cuts, military budget increases, and many other Trump cards will be hard fought at best.  The country will suffer by the left does not care as long as they stop Trump from eroding their ill got gains even farther.

If the Republicans do shoot themselves in the foot and fail to take back the House and lose the Senate, Trump will be in for a constant barrage of impeachment inquiries and trials in the Senate.  The leftist may not be able to remove him from office but their end game is to stop his agenda from moving forward.   They will have to fight Trump’s prolific use of his Veto Powers and hopefully they will not be able to get RINOs to vote with them to override.  They can wait 4 years to take back the Presidency as long as they stop Trump!  What a way to run a car wash, let alone the largest and most powerful nation in the world.

Regardless of the scenario, the President will continue to go directly to the American people via social media and public appearances.  He will use whatever tools he can to move his agenda forward and fight it out in court for almost every move he makes.  The good news is that by then he will have appointed about 200 of the 875 Article III federal judges.  He will also most likely appoint another Supreme Court Judge by the end of his 2nd term which will give him a leg up ultimately when battling the left in court.

18 U.S.C.A. § 2384, Seditious Conspiracy.   

As I mentioned the crime of “Seditious Conspiracy” at the beginning of this article, I would like to take a moment to elaborate.  First of all, the Supreme Court has ruled against most efforts to create laws against sedition.  Why?  Sedition is typically viewed as a free speech issue where the offending party attacks the current government over policy.  Thus voicing opposition to policy is a constitutionally protected right.  Some then conclude that Sedition is thus Constitutional…

But, would prior Supreme Court decisions apply when government officials, elected, appointed, and career, collude, not lobby against using their speech, to prohibit a political candidate from being elected; and worse, attempt to frame a sitting President in order to impeach him or her and “overthrow” that administration and thus the Government, by using existing executive branch employees, civilian and military, to accomplish that goal?  In the Supreme Court case of Yates V the United States, the court ruled that citizens could advocate for the forceful overthrow of the US Government as long as long as these EFFORTS WERE PASSIVE AN NOT ACTED UPON.  The current Deep State efforts are anything but passive.

One other wrinkle, the actual text of the Seditious Conspiracy statute:

“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

I highlighted the words “by force” as it may be construed as a “limiting” factor when considering this law in the context of the Deep State attempting to fraudulently removing a sitting President/Government.  The Law Dictionary defines force as:

“Power dynamically considered, that is, in motion or in action; constraining power, compulsion; strength directed to an end. Usually the word occurs in such connections as to show that unlawful or wrongful action is meant.”

I do believe that the Supreme Court may be faced with deciding whether the Trump Administration’s Justice Department can charge members of the Obama Administration and the Deep State with Seditious Conspiracy in attempting to remove President Trump from office.  It may also apply to the Trump candidacy as well.

There is no doubt that members of the Obama Administration conspired and acted to stop the Trump candidacy, then to set up felonious charges to use to impeach the President.  The use of a Constitutional process, Impeachment, does not excuse or justify the conspiracy.  Sedition is the crime of  revolting or inciting revolt against the government.  Speech alone is not enough to charge sedition but when actions are taken, force, the term applies to the Statute.

If the DOJ does not charge and ultimately convict the perpetrators, no matter how high up this goes, then our Constitutional Republic will have been nullified.  Article I and Article II of the US Constitution will have been replaced by a Deep State coup d’état.

Trump Impeachment-the “Nuts” and the Bolts!-Part II

Don’t Pay ANY ATTENTION to Polls on the Whistleblower Allegations or on Trump Impeachment

Yesterday we visited some of the reasons why the entire “Whistleblower” Ukraine Impeachment story (link: https://wp.me/pY51c-1js) is pure bunk and a figment of the PLMSM (Progressive-Left Main Stream Media). 

Today, we will layout the PLMSM strategy regarding how they will use fabricated allegations, fake news, the Democrat House Committees, and Polling to get you to fall for their BS and think that everyone but you support impeaching President Trump.

The Strategy:

The PLMSM is stuck on stupid and are using the same playbook time and time again; and they are expecting a different result each time!  (remember what Albert Einstein said about the definition of STUPIDITY) 

  1. Create a false story using supposed “credible sources”, primarily inside of the IC (Intelligence Community).  During the Russia Hoax they even solicited false information from foreign intelligence sources including US allies.  Many sources will be from inside of the IC or those with alleged ties to “patriots” inside of the IC.
  2. Leak the Fake Story to the MSM so they can publish articles supporting the Fake Story.  These same stories, based on the same fake info from fake sources, will be used as evidence that the soon to be public Trump Impeachable offense must be true.  If you read or hear these stories in the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, Politico, or other left-wing or RINO sources, do not fall for the false allegations.  
  3. Dem House Leadership and House Committee Chairmen will immediately rush to the cameras and decry yet another “Trump High Crime or Misdemeanor” that must be an impeachable offense against this great nation that only these “patriotic” Democrats can protect you from.  Pelosi and her sidekick AOC will be the first to decry the morally bankrupt Trump and his administration.  (More on this dynamic duo below)
  4. The MSM will immediately fill up their political water buckets and carry the water for the Progressive-Left by running the Fake News allegations 24-7.  They will drag out the “best” legal analysts, who have yet to be right, and you can include the Fox News “Judge” Napolitano and Kellyanne Conway’s hubby, George.  As is the case in the Ukraine hoax, they will ignore any exculpatory information and totally disclaim any wrongdoing by anyone on the Progressive-Left.
  5. Finally, they will create Fake Polls to back up their story that the American People see how despicable President Trump is along with anyone else who dares to support his deplorable behavior.  How?  By modifying the sample.  If you think Polls are either scientific or unbiased, run two laps around the block and listen.  Polls are manipulated by changing the sample size of left-wingers versus Trump supporters.  This goes for polls showing “independents” who think Trump, Kavanaugh, or the entire Republican Party should be impeached or executed.
    1. Question:  Are you and independent?  Answer: Yes
    2. Question:  Who did you vote for in 2016?  Answer:  Hillary
    3. Question:  Do you think Trump should be investigated for xxxx?  Answer:  Yes
    4. The Hillary response pigeonholes this person into the left-wing camp and the independent response is the key to the category.  Of course they are more subtle than this but this gives you an idea how the polls are skew when you add in that the pollsters then sample 50%  “Democrats”; 20% Independents who voted for Hillary; 30% Trump supporters.  By tweaking these percentages, a poll can say anything you want!  Enough negative polls and you start to think that something is wrong with you if you still support the President.  Worse, RINOs in Congress say, “See I told you this President is not a real Republican!”

So:

  1. Create a Fake Narrative with Fake Sources
  2. Leak the Fake Narrative to the Fake Press to create Fake News
  3. Dem Leadership and Committee Chairpersons support the Fake Narrative with the Fake MSM.
  4. MSM runs 24-7 stores supporting the Fake Narrative and the impeachment of the President or someone else they want to use as a straw man or woman.
  5. MSM creates Fake Polls to Support the Fake Narrative and the Trump Impeachment.

There really won’t be much deviation this playbook ever.  Just look back at the Access Hollywood “Scandal”, The Stormy Daniels Scandal, the Playboy Bunny Scandal, the Russia Hoax, the Don Jr. scandal, the Michael Cohen related scandal, and every other “major” scandal surrounding Donald Trump, his candidacy or his Presidency.  Every time the reaction and the results were the same.  Supporters of the President hung in with him; RINOs acted all flustered and nervous; PLMSM when absolutely bonkers to the point their supporters are now psychotic and dangerous.

So, when the next scandal hits, take a deep breath!  Make a checklist for yourself that includes:

  • The title of the Trump “scandal”
  • The date the allegation was first leaked
  • The date the Dem leaders and committee members ran to the cameras to decry the scandal.
  • The date the MSM starting running 24-7 hit jobs on the President
  • When the first polls started showing support for impeachment.
  • File this checklist and wait for the next “scandal”!

Some of these items may be concurrent but the bullet points will be the same.  If you want, just watch Mitch Romney,  Mike Lee, Judge Napolitano, George Conway, Chris Wallace or Bill Krystal for a clue that you are at least in phase 2 or 3 of the PLMSM game.

Don’t expect this onslaught of the President to end even if he is re-elected to a 2nd term.  Remember, this is a battle to the death for the Progressive-Left.  Donald J. Trump is the antithesis of the Progressive-Left and the number one target of George Soros and the international globalist Progressive-Left. 

Too many pundits are painting Pelosi as giving into AOC+3 on impeachmentPelosi and AOC are one and the same, the water girls for George Soros et al.  At the age of 80, Nancy is the soon to be the retired water girl and AOC, or some other Soros surrogate will take her place.  The goal is to replace our Constitutional Republic with a Socialist regime. 

This PLMSM anti-Trump game plan had been set way in advance of the Trump election.  Soros and his ilk read every word that Trump had ever written, especially in his book, “The America We Deserve”.  Soros had to stop him at any price. 

You might wonder why a multi-billionaire like Soros and Buffet want to take down our Republic?  Simple, during the 2008 Financial Crisis, that was aided and abetted by Soros and Buffet and their lackeys in the government, these two, and many others of their ilk, walked in after the “people” were decimated financially, and bought up banks, buildings and other assets for cents on the dollar.  They will do this again and again after creating the bubble, swoop in and swoop up the cash.  Trump is standing in their way!

Global Financial Crisis Looming, George Soros Warns

Trump Impeachment-the “Nuts” and the Bolts!

Deja vu All Over Again!  

Ironically the Russian Hoax, the Kavanaugh Hoax,  and the new Ukraine “Whistleblower” impeachment fervor are linked.  They are also predictive of continuing Progressive-Left/Main Stream Media (PLMSM) future attacks on Donald J. Trump, his presidency, and his supporters.  

The attacks are an admission by the PLMSM that the Trump Presidency is successful in rolling back over 5 decades of Progressive sponsored erosion of our Constitution, our moral fabric as a nation, our rule of law; and an admission that they cannot defeat this President based on policy and political positions at the ballot box either in 2020.

The conservative media and its pundits attribute the PLMSM anti-Trump assault as being a personal hatred of President Trump.   IT IS NOT!  It is a visceral reaction to Trump stopping their Progressive Movement in its tracks while creating an electorate of informed, America-First, anti-socialist, voters that include men and women of all races.  To make matters worse, Trump is taking his show on the international road and talking down their Progressive Globalism, Socialism, and social reconstruction.  Trump is Sunlight to a Vampire; the Cross to Satan; Kryptonite to Superman; and the Anti-Christ to the PLMSM.  Hatred is merely a tool being used to destroy the Trump agenda and accomplishments.  

“Bolts” Before “Nuts”

The “Bolts” of the current “Trump-Ukrainian Crisis” include:

  • The Trump/Ukrainian allegations of wrong-doing by a President was brought by a “Whistleblower” who had no first hand knowledge of his allegations against the President and thus the allegations were based on “hear-say” testimony that is prohibited in our criminal justice system.
  • A “Whistleblower”, who only had 2nd or 3rd hand knowledge of an alleged wrongdoing, would have been prohibited from filing a “whistleblower” claim prior a change in IC regulations that were uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m., just days before the “Whistleblower” complaint was filed!  Prior to this change, the IC regulations followed long standing US judicial principles that a witness must, provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings.”  This change was made roughly at the same time that the “Whistleblower” claim was filed!  Sounds like an extension of the “Me-Too” movement where the rule of law is stood on its head in favor of the allegation.
  •  The Intelligence Community Inspector General, (ICIG) Michael K. Atkinson, marked his referral of the “Whistleblower” complaint to the Acting Director of Intelligence, and Democrat Adam Schiff as “Urgent Concern”, based on the IG’s assessment that President Trump may have violated Campaign Finance Laws by soliciting help against one of his political opponents from the Ukraine that would may then been an “in-kind” contribution. 
  • Campaign Finance laws are outside of the purview of the IC and its IG. The ICIG could witness a murder by the President but not be empowered to report it via the “urgent concern” regulations!
  • Based on current law, the ICIG is only authorized to receive “Urgent-Concern” “Whistleblower” complaints on “…an employee (or contractor) of an element of the Intelligence Community…”, 50 U.S.C. § 3033(k)(5)(A).  The President of the United States is not considered to be an employee nor a contractor of the IC and thus NOT subject to ICIG purview.
  •  The President of the United States and the Ukrainian Government are required to provide legal assistance to each other on criminal matters.  The TREATY WITH UKRAINE ON MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS” was signed by President Clinton on July 22nd, 1998!  Ukraine has been subjected to political corruption for years.  President Trump was invoking this Treaty to request criminal investigative assistance on corruption in Ukraine that may involve US and Ukrainian citizens.  As stated by President Clinton, “It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state.” 
  • As a Treaty, complianced and execution is mainly under the purview of the Secretary of State as well as the President supportedc by his justice and intelligence agencies.  So, it is not inconsistant that the State Department would ask a seasoned prosecutor like Rudy Giuliani, to vet the Biden and Crowd Strike allegations of criminal behavior with the Ukrainian government.  The DOJ/FBI would only be brought into the investigation as the behest of the State Department.
  • Under the US/Ukrainian Treaty, there are NO provisions exempting political candidates from being the target of such criminal referrals or requests for investigative assistance.  President Obama, and his Vice President Joe Biden requested assistance from the Ukrainians to investigate candidate Trump and Paul Manafort prior to the 2016 election.   If political candidates were shielded from investigation or prosecution, I am sure John Gotti would have ran for Mayor of NY!
  • Under Federal Elections Commissions regulations, or their enabling statutes, there are no restrictions on who can be referred to investigative and prosecutorial International, Federal, State or local agencies.  There are also no FEC regulations that define in-kind contributions as those gained as a result of International, Federal, State or local agency investigations or prosecutions.  Political candidates cannot hide behind their candidacy in order to avoid justified investigation or prosecution.  In 2015-6, the Obama administration and its law enforcement and IC agencies, placed President Trump and his campaign staff and organization under criminal and national security investigations.  Any objections then by the PLMSM?

There are many other “bolts” that we can review but these frame the character of the allegations, the purview of the DNI and its IG, and the autonomy of the Presidency regarding IG investigations.  Do we really want our President’s conversations with foreign leaders to be on the front page of the New York Times and show cased on CNN!  I think not.

The “Nuts”

The “Nuts” are easy to spot and include all of the bona fide members of the PLMSM.  Congressman Adam Schiff is probably the most visible along with the Speaker, Nancy Pelosi.

See the source image

 

Jerry Nadler would liked to be the Head-Nut and is trying his worst to edge out Schiff.  Then you have the lessor nuts, not in terms of nuttiness but stature, that include AOC+3, Elijah Cummings, John Lewis, Maxine Waters, and a whole host of others.  The “Nuts” are supported by members of the MSM and notably led by CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, and the failing New York times…  

But, don’t assume that the “Nuts” / PLMSM are comedic characters.  They are not,  They are as serious as is the loss of freedom in the US.  They have unlimited resources, they stick together, and they seek to win regardless of the consequences.  The current “President Trump Ukrainian Crisis of the Week” is merely a step in their playbook to destroy the Trump administration and his policies to reverse the Progressive-Left annihilation of the US Constitution, capitalism, and our rule of law.  When this crisis has been debunked, they will surface a new one in its place. 

The PLMSM has set the stage to use IC and administration leakers to leak to the press, use hear-say whistleblowers, and supporting press attacks to create more and more “impeachable” crimes perpetrated by President Trump.  The PLMSM knows that the citizens of the US are not supportive of its Progressive-Left candidates or their agenda.  They must try to drive out Trump or tire his base and reduce his support among the voters.  So far Trump has stood his ground.  How much more can oned human being take?

  The use by the PLMSM of our IC against the President is an attack on our Constitutional Republic that features a strong Executive.  They seek to created an Executive Branch that responds more like a Parliamentary Government’s Primed Minister that is subject to the political winds of the day.  One that its Press and the left can eliminate if they disagree with its policies.  One where an oligarchy of elected and unelected officials can use to control foreign and domestic policy and eventually ensconce the US deeply in a Progressive, Globalist, Socialist, and social reconstructed society.

Remember, They Were One Election Short of Their Goal in 2016!

Did the Intelligence Community IG Actively Aid the “Whistleblower” in His Impeachment Quest

With Iran Sabre Rattling, 7 RINOs Block Trump’s Arm Sales to Our Middle East Allies

See the source image

These are the Seven Anti-Trump Middle-East Policy Senators who Voted to Kill Trump’s Arms deal with Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates:

  • Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins
  • South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham
  • Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee
  • Kansas Republican Sen. Jerry Moran
  • Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski
  • Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul
  • Indiana Republican Sen. Todd Young

This deal would give US companies $8 Billion in sales while standing-up these Middle-Eastern countries with the arms they need to allow the US to step back from direct conflicts in the region.  Most of these same Senators agree with the President’s Middle-East policy of having our allies in the region police their own region with logistics and intelligence support.  But, when it came down to providing those nations with the arms to actually put that policy into practice, they abandoned the President.  Why?

Here are a couple of the “reasons”:

  • Graham blamed Saudi alleged involvement in the death of the Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece Jamal Khashoggi as one of the reasons he dissented.
  • Libertarian Rand Paul stated on the Senate floor in a speech;  “Do I want someone representing me to who is selling arms to people who hate our country?  Do I want to have people representing me who continue to flood the Middle East with Arms?”

Collins, Murkowski, Moran, Lee and Young have always been Luke-warm supporters of the President on a number of issues.  They veiled their opposition to the arms deal as a protest against the President as he had invoked emergency powers, that the Congress had given to the Presidency, to bypass a 30 day review process, read tongue wagging contest in Congress, in order to expedite he deal. 

They had also protested Saudi involvement in Yemen which is a proxy war being waged by Iran!  Iran is the very Shia State Sponsor of Terror in the region that this arms deal is trying to stop!  The President had spelled this policy out his  Middle-East Proxy policy in 2017.  This arms deal with Saudi Arabia is only a small part of the $110 Billion arms deal that Trump signed with Saudi Arabia in May of this year.  This was no surprise.

So, do we as a nation want to continue to engage in wars that last 20 years with no resolution?  Do we as a nation want to send our young women and men into harms way where we have only a moderate degree of national interest?  Do we as a nation want to spend Trillions of dollars on wars in the Middle-East that only serves to feed terror leaders new recruits as they see our flag as a symbol of hatred towards Muslims?

Ask yourself, have any of these Senators, or members of the House of Representatives, actually put forth a viable policy for the Middle-East?  Have any of them actually defined any real objection to Trump’s Middle East Policy?  The answer is NO!

Write these clowns and tell them to get behind a foreign policy that saves the lives of our young women and men; saves our nation trillions of dollars; and stops breeding hatred towards the US for interfering directly in the Middle-East.  You have to wonder why we keep paying for Congress for absolutely no benefit.

Thank God Trump will Veto their attempts to block this sale and thwart his Middle-East Policy.

Aftermath of 2020 Election When Trump Is Reelected

See the source image

Message to the Democrat Party and their lackeys in the Main Stream Media;

“Be Careful What You Ask For, You Might Just Get It”!

Since citizen Trump came down the escalator in Trump Tower to announce his candidacy in June of 2015, The Democrats and their co-conspirators in the left-wing media have created a campaign to demonize President Trump in order to “expunge” him from the Presidency.  This is not a direct political attack on Trump’s policies, it has been an all out character assassination of his character, his wife, and his family, along with anyone who dared to vote for him or don a “MAGA” hat! 

Their goal is to create an image of the President as morally unfit for office, incompetent to lead, a deep-seated racists, hater of women and women’s causes, a homophobe, a financial predator who “stole” millions from everyone he did business with, and any image that is considered vile in the eyes of most people.   The bad news is that these conspirators have convinced about 25% on the hard progressive-left that all of these images are true and have confused another 10-15% that some of these allegations may be true.  The 92+% negative coverage by the left-wing news has hammered these images home!  These are age old tactics by the left and they have worked before, that is before Trump!

But, with the lackluster field of 2020 Democrat candidates for president; and the overreach of Pelosi and Schumer to push for impeachment and constant investigations into everything Trump; their is a high chance that in 2020 Trump will keep the Presidency; win back the House, and pick up seats in the Senate.  

THE LEFT WILL OPENLY REVOLT!

You can see evidence of this already.  Reasonable friends you have had for years suddenly dispute hard economic facts that are positive; they believe that whatever CNN, MSNBC or the nightly news or their late night comedy parrots spew is factual; and they have no interest in seeking alternative sources of knowledge.  These friends see the efforts to use foreign surveillance tools and overreaching congressional investigations as reasonable to rid this nation of the reprobate who occupies the White House!  So what is left is Trump remains in the White House and takes back the House?  Open Revolt!  

It will start with protests then be taken over by left-wing activists such as Antifa.  Radical US socialist and communist groups will be paid to fuel the fire until someone gets killed!  We saw this in the 60’s and we are in for an even more violent insurrection.  Unfortunately, the 25+% of Americans who have been duped and riled up by the radical left democrats and their media will mass to support the insurrection.  

See the source image

The difference is that this insurrection has at its core the survival of Progressive-Left dominance in the US that has been reduced dramatically by President Trump.  This is not only a US phenomena but a Western Civilization coup against Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law.  The hard progressive-left has fought for over a century to replace democratic institutions with leftist socialist governments.  They left knows that if Trump gets back into the White House with majorities in the Senate and House, he may just drive the final nail in the coffin known as the progressive-left movement!  

They know that Trump has:

  • Revamped the US economy based on capitalism using lower taxation and massively reduced regulation.
  • Strengthened our military and is standing down our left supported enemies who used them to weaken the US internationally.
  • Done everything legally possible to enforce border security and stop the flow of illegal immigration into the US. 
  • Revamped our trade policies to stand-up the US as an economic leader with “Buy American and Hire American” policies.
  • Weakened international institutions such as the UN and the WTO that were created and propped up to counter-balance the US superpower status.
  • Made the US the largest producer of energy in the world, eliminating threats of an energy crisis by oil producing nations and organizations bent on controlling the West by controlling energy.
  • Forced key allies, and mutual treaty organizations such as NATO, to stand strong and contribute to their mutual defense.  

The Left’s Biggest Fear:

With the White House and Congress behind him, he will take on public education and kill the indoctrination arm of the progressive-left by institutionalizing “SCHOOL CHOICE”.  He will also take on colleges and universities who worked with the progressive-left to financially enslave all who attend these institutions and to instill radical left ideology in their minds!  This is the most feared policy by the left that Trump will pursue and one that will have the most lasting impact on the politics of this nation.

Only an educated electorate can sustain a free nation founded on  a Constitutional Republic form of government!  

Economically depressed minorities can only be lifted up through equal educational opportunities provided through School Choice.

Returning America to a Melting Pot can only be accomplished by promoting educational opportunities that reinforce our history, civics, culture and moral foundations.

Ignorance breeds economic, cultural, political and moral slavery.

Trump’s threat to the progressive-left, their complicit media, and other international forces aligned against the US, is real.  The left has created a base of mindless, hate filled zealots who will not stop in seeking the utter destruction of President Trump and his policies, AND HIS SUPPORTERS.  Their battle against Trump and his supporters are akin to a “religious” holy war and it will get physical.  Be aware, and be careful following Trump’s reelection and the violence that insures.

Progressive-Left Silent Replacement of the Electoral College-Be Informed Now!

National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC)

See the source image

This Compact is simply a method to change Presidential elections of the President and the Vice President from the current Electoral College method to electing these offices based on the POPULAR VOTE.  Simply stated, ” When a state joins the NPV Compact, it promises that it will give all of its electoral votes to the party that wins the national popular vote, rather than the party that wins the state popular vote. “  In 2000 Al Gore received 48.4% of the popular vote compared to the Electoral College winner George W. Bush who received 47.9% of the popular vote.  In 2016, Hillary Clinton received 48.2% of the popular vote as compared to 46.1% of the popular vote received by the Electoral College winner Donald J. Trump. 

See the source imagePrior to 2000, the last election where the Electoral College winner received less of the popular vote than the losing candidate was in 1888.  

Why Doesn’t the NPVIC Require a Constitutional Amendment?

In the original Constitution in Article II, Section 1, the founders set up an indirect vote mechanism for selecting the President and Vice President, by creating State Electors, based on the number of Senators and Representatives currently representing the State in Congress.  BUT,  The Constitution reserves the choice of the precise manner for creating Electors to the will of the State legislatures. 

  • So, a given State could create electors based on the popular vote within the State’s election and electors designated to each candidate based on their share of the vote.  (Today, only South Dakota and Maine use this method.)  
  • Or, a given State could create electors based on the popular vote within the State’s election, but create a winner-take-all scenario where the winner of the State’s popular vote would have all of the State’s Electors designated to the winner.  (Today, 48 States plus the District of Colombia use this method.) 
  • Or, a given State’s electors could be designated to the candidate who RECEIVES THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULAR VOTE IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES.  This is the current proposed method of the NPVIC but it would require that States representing at least a majority of the current number of Electoral College electors, 270, have signed onto this compact.  While this method slides around the Electoral College Elector designation by State, it does NOT violate Article II, Section 1 of the US Constitution, nor the 12th Amendment of the US Constitution! 

The US Constitution’s Article II, Section 1, as amended,  does not mandate a specific methodology as to how Electors in the Electoral College are created and directed and have left this up to State Legislatures.  Remember, the founders created a Republic where the central or federal government had limited, defined powers, and the States were to retain the balance of powers.  The Electoral College mechanism was seen as a way to have proportional, Presidential,  electoral power based on their respective representation/population.  They viewed the selection of a President based on a national popular vote as disfavoring smaller rural States.    

How Close are We to A National Popular Vote For President?

The current compact is aimed at ensuring that the candidate who wins the most popular votes is elected President, and it would be triggered only when it would guarantee that outcome.  In other words, IF, there were States representing at least 270 electoral votes in the 2016 election who had signed onto this compact, then Hillary Clinton may have been our current President.

Today, 11 States and the District of Columbia have signed onto the NPVIC, representing 172 electoral votes.  This represents 63.4% of the number of electoral votes needed (270) TO GIVE THIS COMPACT LEGAL FORCE!  The States that have signed onto this compact include:  (Note, these are primarily Left Leaning States)

1 Maryland 10 April 10, 2007
2 New Jersey 14 January 13, 2008
3 Illinois 20 April 7, 2008
4 Hawaii 4 May 1, 2008
5 Washington 12 April 28, 2009
6 Massachusetts 11 August 4, 2010
7 District of Columbia 3 December 7, 2010
8 Vermont 3 April 22, 2011
9 California 55 August 8, 2011
10 Rhode Island 4 July 12, 2013
11 New York 29 April 15, 2014
12 Connecticut 7 May 24, 2018
Total 172 (63.7% of the 270 EVs needed

The following States have active or pending legislation to adopt the compact:

State Votes
Idaho 4
Maine 4
New Hampshire 4
 New Mexico 5
 Oregon 7
 Colorado 9
 South Carolina 9
 Minnesota 10
 Arizona 11
 Indiana 11
 Georgia 16
Total Potential Votes 90

You read this correctly.  IF all of these states adopt the Compact, then there would be 262 of the 270 Electoral  Votes required to trigger a popular vote outcome.  If other States join totaling 8 more votes, then the next election would be up for grab if a Presidential candidate who won the popular vote failed to receive 270 Electoral Votes!  In this example, if these States had voted to join the Compact prior to the 2016 Presidential election, then Hillary Rodham Clinton would be your President today!

Keep an eye on this movement in your State! 

The allure of the popular vote sounds good but remember that the two coasts contain a huge population of left-wing progressives who vote in lock-step.  You would think that something as drastic as this shift in selecting the Electoral College electors should be subject to a Constitutional amendment,  But, no.  It would take a Constitutional Amendment to change back if the NPVIC receives sufficient State signatories!  When was the last Constitutional Amendment that your remember being passed?

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:

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…
