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.

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…
