From Starbucks to Home Depot: The Left can’t help but eat their own.

Online leftists can’t help themselves. No matter how “woke” a company or person is, they are never “woke” enough to live in a leftist’s world.

This week’s example is the boycott over Home Depot (1.9 – Liberal) co-founder Bernie Marcus’ recent statement about plans to donate to President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. The boycott trended for at least two days this week on Twitter, with tens of thousands of Tweets.

But what is the boycott going to actually accomplish? Frankly, not much.

Here are three reasons the boycott is destined to fail:

First, it won’t hurt Marcus, who stepped down as Chairman of Home Depot’s board in 2002. Boycotting his old company just hurts Home Depot employees, many of whom are low-paid. The actual goal of the boycott – to harm Marcus – is totally and completely irrelevant when compared with reality.

Second, it won’t convince Home Depot to be more liberal. The company ranks a paltry 1.9 on the 2ndVote scale because of its financial support for attacks on life, religious liberty, and the 2nd Amendment. The company is already liberal!

Third, the boycott may convince some companies to not sell out to the Left. Companies should be politically neutral participants in the marketplace. Despite this, even “woke” firms like Twitter, Starbucks,and Home Depot are not immune to being sacrificed on the Left’s altar of wokeness.

Home Depot responded to this boycott by clarifying that they don’t endorse presidential candidates and that Marcus was speaking on his own behalf. They should go one step further and say that this boycott has convinced them that they should go back to serving all Americans equally instead of using conservative dollars to support liberal causes.

Until Home Depot recognizes that it is not good corporate policy or leadership to support social agendas which alienate a large portion of your customers, 2ndVote Americans have another choice of hardware store which isn’t kowtowing to leftist wokeness. ACE Hardware (4 – Lean Conservative) ranks a “4” on our scale because they allow franchises to sell firearms, and is totally neutral in all areas!

Pushing Back Against Anti-Americanism

In response to my clarion call for citizens to push back against anti-Americanism and cultural assassins, several of you have asked how. Some believe the battle is already lost. Some think violent resistance is the only solution. I disagree with both mindsets.

We are a Christian nation founded upon the rock of biblical principles. This is why unlike any other form of government, our constitution has survived over 243 years. It is up to each of us to pray, asking God to reveal our personal role in restoring America back to His original intention for our exceptional great nation.

In the gospel song, “Ordinary People” the lyric says, “Your little becomes much when you place it in the Master’s hand.” My younger brother is a perfect example of this truth. He is a deacon in a church in Baltimore with an all black congregation. His pastor and the congregation hate Trump, Republicans and trend towards anti-Americanism. On numerous occasions, my black Republican brother has confronted his pastor and fellow parishioners about how their loyalty to the Democratic party conflicts with their supposed commitment to Jesus Christ and biblical teachings. Their response has been to impugn him, calling him an Uncle Tom. A church member laughed at my brother for wearing a tiny American flag lapel pin.

My brother said rather than leaving his church of 25 years, he feels led to stay to provide salt and light. He teaches a class at church for new Christians, taking every opportunity to explain how the Democrat’s agenda is contrary to God’s agenda. My brother said more and more members are secretly coming to him, thanking him for opening their eyes to the truth. Praise God. This is how we restore America folks, each of us doing what we can from where we are. In his own way, my brother is pushing back.

For decades, Republicans and Christians have passively allowed leftists to infect our youth with anti-Americanism and instill a culture of glorified debauchery while systemically secularizing our government. All references of America’s Christian founding have been removed from public education. Historian David Barton is pushing back by publishing his Founder’s Bible.

Nike, sports apparel company, pulled their new Betsy Ross flag shoes off shelves because spoiled-brat anti-American multi-millionaire Colin Kaepernick absurdly claimed Ross’s flag celebrates slavery.

Renowned conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh pushed back. He launched a “Stand Up for Betsy Ross” t-shirt campaign featuring the Betsy Ross flag. Proceeds benefit the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Sales have gone through the roof. Thousands of Americans relished the opportunity to join Rush in pushing back against leftists’ relentless assaults on our great homeland.

Thank God for President Trump. Push back is in his DNA.

Democrats sought to destroy Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot for donating to Trump’s reelection campaign. Unlike most Republicans, Trump pushed back. He boldly defended Marcus and Home Depot with the following tweet.

“A truly great, patriotic & charitable man, Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot who, at the age of 90, is coming under attack by the Radical Left Democrats with one of their often used weapons. They don’t want people to shop at those GREAT stores because he contributed to your favorite President, me!”

“These people are vicious and totally crazed, but remember, there are far more great people (‘Deplorables’) in this country, than bad. Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!”

Trump is righteously pushing back against illegals invading our country. Democrats and fake news media desire to corrupt our elections with illegal alien voters. Their sinister scheme began with President Obama removing the citizenship question from the census. Despite enraged Democrats and fake news media having a temper tantrum, Trump plans to issue an executive order to put the citizenship question back in the 2020 census. This is what courageous push back looks like.

I am seeing more and more signs that Americans are finally waking up, pushing back on the front lines of leftists’ war on babies, religious liberty, patriotism and freedom.

For decades we have allowed leftists to dumb down public education; removing true American history and biblical morality from our schools. Consequently, ignorance of the biblical roots of our Constitution and the huge price paid for our freedoms poses the greatest threat to preserving American exceptionalism. We are literally one election away from losing our Founder’s divinely inspired vision of America. It is imperative that each of us push back; doing our part to restore and preserve this unique extraordinarily successful experiment called America. bit.ly/2LhQHf2

Remember, “Your little becomes much when you place it in the Master’s hand.”

What’s Next?

What’s next? More winning that’s what’s next! But first these important acknowledgements and then closing forecasts.

Let’s Begin by Digressing

Yes, I wrote about Jeffrey Epstein, child sex trafficking, pedophilia and demonic, satanic groups a long time before it surfaced. I have also spoken about Trump’s complete innocence in the Mueller witch hunt. I have talked about false flags and naming the events that were and are false flags. I also wrote and exposed in part, the deep state and shadow government of this world for a very long time, naming names and organizations in my work along the way. In a book I wrote in 2014-2015, before the famous escalator event, I forecasted that the most unlikely person in our hour of need would arrive and provide the leadership that America and the world so desperately needed.

I have written about Trump gaining global support and how N. Korea, Iran, and other countries are in fact deep state ops of which Trump is now addressing and dismantling. I wrote about how we will convene hearings, probes, trials, investigations and issue subpoenas against the enemies within and turn the tables upside down on them a long time ago when the witch hunt against Trump began, in an article titled “Scale of Discovery and Action”, which included comments on military tribunals long before the tribunals began. You can search for on this website. I can go on and on but I won’t. I could take the entire day and link up my previous work and sourced links, but I won’t. Get some skin in the game and check it all out for yourself. I do, however, want to get to what’s next. So, let me wrap up this and then conclude with “whats next”.

I have been at this now for over two decades. Turns out that many of the conspiracy theories of yesterday have turned out to be the conspiracy facts and realities of today. Believe it or not, many people across this world actually believed that President Trump colluded with Russia regarding election interference. Can you imagine that? What a joke. Believe it or not, at one time, many Americans actually believed that the Federal Reserve was part of the Federal Government and that the news was fair, balanced, and honest. Many people thought that chemtrails and weather modification was lunatic lingo. How wrong they all have been. And believe it or not, many people today still think that Q is a conspiracy theorist dream, a fools game. They will find out soon. Meanwhile many, many are coming aboard all over the globe in increasing numbers. In this great awakening, as truths are revealed, we can all be right. So where are things heading? What’s next?

What’s Next?

The democrats, the fake news, and the deep state. will continue to divert the narrative with baseless subpoenas and law suits against President Trump and others supportive of the president. These are diversionary distractions to clog up the news cycle. Nothing will come of this and that includes no impeachment. They are cornered and imploding. The deep state and its operatives are in full scale panic mode. Expect this modus-operandi to continue. Suicides and “suicided”, as I wrote about many months ago, are now occurring and will escalate over time. More and more false flags of all kinds will continue. Expect more of this. So what else is next?

The de-class will gain momentum. The sealed indictments will continue to be unsealed, i.e. Jeffrey Epstein. There will be subpoenas, indictments, jail time, GITMO lock ups, military tribunals, and more. And yes, The Clinton’s and Obama’s, will be held accountable, or will no longer cease to exist. I’ll elaborate on that at another time. Mark my words, they are all going down. As for the Bush’s? They are relatively neutralized as Trump and team has, for all intents and purposes, won the Bush battle. That dynasty and its influence, for the most part, are now in the dustbin of history. I will provide deep details in my next book due out in April 2020.

So what else is next? More winning! The wall will be completed. Immigration policies will be enforced and new ones written. Illegals will be deported and addressed here in the US. We will keep our guns. After 2020, we win the battle over censorship and the tech giants are put in their place through Trump led legislation. And some time into the second term, President Trump will take on healthcare which includes not only the insurance aspect, but issues such as 5G, vaccines and the enormous power of Big Pharma with it’s “customers versus cures” and outrageous pricing. I know that the President’s actions or seemingly lack of, in some of what I just mentioned, has not been exactly what we wanted to hear. I get it. Sit tight. This is an intelligence battle being waged. Optics. Strategy. Timing. Stay with Trump. He has not let us down. No Trump, no hope.

So what’s next? Trump wins in an electoral college and popular vote historical crushing landslide. The only thing that will prevent this, is death or successful election rigging against Trump. I say neither will occur and we get four more years of Trump. Having said that, get out and vote and get other Republicans registered and get them out to vote as if your life depends on it. Why? Because it does!

The economy will continue to soar but all this will begin to change after the 2020 victory as Trump begins to escalate his moves against the IRS, the Federal Reserve, Central Bank, Rothschild, IMF elite rigged system; restoring sound money, and a new global economic, trade and monetary system, restoring power to the people. But not without some disruptions of all kinds. Stay informed. Be prepared. Trump, as I wrote about back in 2018, is becoming, and will be, the most loved and admired man alive, gaining continued global support from not only citizens of the word but from Global leaders as well. We are witnessing the destruction of the old guard. God be with us.

Subscribe to my YouTube channel and watch some of my public speeches. Check out the media page on my website for engaging trending subjects that I address all across America. I encourage you to pick up a copy of my current book “Trump and the Resurrection of America” to perhaps validate what you already know, and or to awaken you to the harsh reality that we have been living in a web of deceitful lies for a very long time and that evil today, is showing it’s ugly face. This is all changing now as we go from dark to light. Put on your seat belts it will be a bumpy ride to victory.

Gloves Come Off: Far Left Democrat Insinuates Black And Hispanic Lawmakers Who Side With Pelosi Are Race Traitors 

Democrats In Disarray 

Armed Man Shot And Killed After Hurling Molotov Cocktail At Seattle ICE Center 

The Humanitarian Hoax of the 2020 Democrat Party Platform: Killing America With Kindness

The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

The Democrat party platform for 2020 is a staggering political humanitarian hoax that disguises anti-Americanism as altruism. The Democratic National Committee presents itself as “working hard to advance issues like immigration reform, education reform, health care reform, and alternative energy.” Sounds great – all humanitarian hoaxes do. So, let’s see how this works.

Countries are defined by four basic elements and the Democrat party has taken aim at all four. We will examine these elements one at a time.

  • territory
  • population
  • culture
  • government

1. Territory

Territory refers to the demarcation of a country’s physical borders that define its earthly space and separate it from other countries, each with its own government. Without borders there is no country.

The open borders platform embraced by the Democrat party is their signature anti-American immigration reform. Open borders deliberately threaten the sovereign territorial borders of the United States by rejecting any attempts to defend the borders against the current mass invasion of illegal immigrants. While disingenuously insisting that open borders are a humanitarian issue, Democrat candidates oppose border wall funding and propose abolishing ICE so that nothing and no one can stop the flow of this massive invasion.

Open borders are an anti-American power grab by Democrats with twin benefits to themselves. First, mass immigration will overwhelm the country with illegals who will vote for the Democrats who let them in, creating a one-party system for the foreseeable future. Second, uncontrolled immigration will collapse the economy by overloading the welfare system – it is the destructive socialists’ Cloward-Piven strategy on steroids.

In a stunning interview published on YouTube July 11, 2019, Nancy Pelosi tutors illegal aliens on how to avoid deportation and actually says that the United States is part of a global community and illegals have rights!

Excuse me? Illegals are illegal by definition and are most definitely NOT entitled to the rights of citizens according to the U.S. Constitution. Yet, anti-American globalist Nancy Pelosi, voicing the 2020 Democrat party platform, declares the United States is not a sovereign country with defensible borders, and that U.S. politicians have no right to stop this illegal migration.

Former Florida Rep. and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West responded saying that Pelosi’s actions border on treason, “Unless I am grossly mistaken, Ms. Pelosi just violated her oath of office and has committed a high crime and misdemeanor.”

Globalism and American sovereignty are mutually exclusive. American sovereignty depends upon defensible territorial borders and a sovereign American government that upholds the U.S. Constitution. The 2020 Democrat party platform is a globalist, no-borders, anti-American, attack on the Constitution that advances the doctrine of one world government.

2. Population

Population refers to the people living in a country. The United States is the third most populous country in the world with almost 329 million people as of May 2019. The U.S. Census Bureau is the primary source of information about our nation’s people. The Census Bureau counts the entire U.S. population every ten years. The results of the census are used politically for apportionment. Apportionment determines the proportional number of members each U.S. state sends to the House of Representatives, and also establishes the number of eligible voters in that state. The question of citizenship has been part of the U.S. Census since its inception until Barack Obama eliminated it.

The Democrat party platform rejects restoring the census citizenship question because its results will reduce their apportionment in Congress and the number of eligible Democrat voters when illegals are not counted.

Demography is the study of the characteristics of a population and it is often said that demography is destiny. What does this mean?

Demography studies the size, structure, and distribution of different groups of people defined by age, sex, religion, education, nationality, ethnicity, etc. Social demography examines the relationship between economic, social, cultural, and biological processes influencing a population. As the demographics of a population change public policy adapts to meet the changing requirements. So, flooding America with an immigrant population, particularly those with globalist and/or sharia-compliant hostile norms, changes the demographics and eventually public policy. This is the essence of the open borders immigration reform embraced by the Democrat humanitarian hucksters led by huckster-in-chief Barack Obama himself.

In America, Barack Obama imported 43,000 sharia compliant Somali refugees into the United States, many were resettled in Minnesota. Ilhan Omar, also a sharia compliant Muslim, was elected by her constituency and protects their hostile norms in the name of diversity actually accusing anyone who objects as Islamophobic or racist. The same thing that is happening in Minnesota happened in Luton, England because demographics are destiny.

The small English town of Luton had only one mosque. Following the European Union demand for mass immigration of sharia compliant Muslims into England, the number of mosques swelled to thirty. This changed the demographics of Luton. The hostile social and cultural norms of sharia compliant Muslim immigrants created crime and social chaos in Luton. UK journalist began reporting on Muslim grooming and rape gangs that were raping little English girls according to sharia law. British authorities protected the Muslim perpetrators in the name of cultural diversity, and punished Tommy Robinson for exposing the crimes and the British coverup. Demographics are destiny.

3. Culture

Culture refers to the pattern of human activity and the symbols that give significance to them. Culture manifests itself in the forms of art, literature, clothing, customs, language, and religion. The way people live and what they believe constitutes their culture. Their principles and moral values also form an important part of their culture. People from different parts of the world have different cultural values. Cultural differences contribute to the diversity in people’s thinking and living styles.

Culture is not innate it is learned. Culture is passed down from generation to generation at home and in school. American traditional Judeo-Christian values were taught at home and reinforced in schools. Not anymore. Since Barack Obama forced Common Core education into the public school system, American education has become globalized instruction that reflects its anti-American, antisemitic, anti-Christian, pro-Muslim, pro-globalist agenda. Common Core comports with the United Nations Agenda 2030 and its 17 sustainable goals designed to internationalize the world under one world government. The Common Core rejects American sovereignty, American exceptionalism, American Judeo-Christian traditions, and the American meritocracy. Common Core’s educational goal is to prepare the world’s children for membership in the globalized new world order of one world government.

Common Core has had a calamitous effect on America, American children, and American families. Joy Pullman’s recent book, The Education Invasion: How Common Core fights parents for control of American kids, describes this catastrophe and exposes the federalized education scheme and the globalist funding that promoted it. Parents and teachers are finally recognizing the crippling anti-American nature of Common Core and are fighting to have it removed.

Common Core is the globalized anti-American education reform embraced by the Democrat party platform in 2020. Its anti-American curriculum content provided by Pearson Education is Obama’s dream of a globalized, internationalized pro-Muslim education facilitated courtesy of the Qatari government, Qatar Foundation International, and the Libyan Investment Authority’s major Islam-promoting donors.

Common Core teaches American history as white racist oppression. Our American children are being indoctrinated to be self-loathing Americans who will reject Americanism, American Judeo-Christian values, American exceptionalism, the American meritocracy, and eventually vote for collectivism and one-world government. Common Core is part of the anti-American information revolution that will be won at the ballot box – no bullets required.

The current Democrat party platform presents reparations as the remedy for white racist oppression. Reparations?? Really?

Any student of history knows slavery was a heinous historical reality in every part of the world including the United States. Any student of history also knows that Americans and Republican President Abraham Lincoln went to war and 750,000 Americans died to free the slaves in this country. Slavery is still legal in 15 countries including China, Russia, North Korea, India, Uzbekistan, Dem. Republic of the Congo, Pakistan, Sudan, Dominican Republic, Yemen, Iraq, Indonesia, Philippines, Guatemala, and Nigeria.

Racism in America began as the consequence of slavery. Slavery was outlawed in America with the 13th Amendment on December 6, 1865, eight months after the end of the Civil War, but the racist attitudes that supported it did not immediately disappear. America is not a racist country – we elected a black president – enough talk about reparations.

Race hustlers in the Democrat party platform disingenuously focus on historical slavery and intentionally ignore the ongoing slavery integral to Islamic sharia law. Women are the property of their husbands – owning a human being is slavery. Young infidel girls are groomed to be sex slave – rape and sex grooming is slavery. In the name of diversity, the Democrat party has surrendered its Judeo-Christian culture to the barbarism of Islamic sharia law.

4. Government

The United States of America was formed as a constitutional representative republic designed to provide minimum government and maximum freedom for its citizens. The Democrat Party 2020 platform offers maximum government and minimum freedom for the people. This is how the reversal works.

Barack Obama’s post-presidency “resistance” movement has mobilized his loyal soldiers embedded in the government, and unleashed a cadre of anti-American activists, politicians, and community organizers bound together by identity politics and an anti-American ideology seeking to overthrow the duly elected President Donald Trump. Obama’s hope for change agenda is the Democrat party 2020 platform featuring:

  • Open borders
  • Illegal immigration
  • Educational indoctrination
  • Anti-traditional norms of our Judeo-Christian culture
  • Economy killing Green New Deal
  • Centralized government offering one-payer health insurance
  • Dissolution of the Constitution and our representative republic in favor of socialism and one world government

Obama’s resistance movement poured the footing for this anti-American revolution of the 21st century. He subverted the liberal Democrat party launching its transformation into the extreme leftist, anti-American, anti-Christian, antisemitic, pro-socialist, pro-Muslim, pro-globalist debacle that it is today.

Radical newcomers Omar, Tlaib, Cortex, and Pressley have cracked the once unified Democrat party and radicalized it to staggering levels. Obama’s sycophants and embedded operatives targeted the pillars of American society including the meritocracy, the family, Judeo-Christian norms, and the Protestant work ethic. The 2020 Democrat party and its platform is an anti-American, antisemitic, anti-Christian, pro-communist, pro-Muslim, pro-globalist consortium of bad actors with common cause to shatter the United States of America from within.

If the Democrat party prevails in 2020 and manages to destroy the four elements that make a country a country, America will cease to exist as a sovereign nation. What then?

Historically, to the victor goes the spoils – not this time. The leftist/socialist/Islamist alliance of the 2020 Democrat party platform will shatter and the infighting will begin. The leftist socialist Democrats foolishly presume they will impose their socialist fantasy of collectivism upon America. The Muslim Brotherhood leftist sharia-compliant Democrats foolishly presume they will settle America and make it Muslim. Both alliance partners are too arrogant to realize that they are the useful idiots of the globalist who have outwitted them. The globalists have exploited them and their common cause to create the social chaos required for globalist ambitions to rule the world themselves under one world government.

Leftists and Islamists brought a knife to a gunfight. English aristocrat Sir Bertrand Russell described the planned globalist takeover in his classic 1952 book, The Impact of Science on Society. The fight for world domination is not new – it just has new scripts, new actors, and new costumes.

Barack Obama won the starring role of U.S. President in the 2008 Washington D.C. theatrical hit “Hope and Change” and then renewed his contract for the 2012-2016 season. As with so many long-running shows, “Hope and Change” flopped at the box office in 2016. The audience rejected Hillary Clinton, the actress hired to replace Obama, and stopped buying tickets to the play. A new script titled “Resistance” was created for Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez auditioned for the supporting role of New York congresswoman and won the part. She performs her scripted lines well and will continue to do so until she is replaced by another auditioned actress.

The Democrat party is currently auditioning parts for the 2020-2024 season of “Resistance.” Its plot disguises anti-Americanism as altruism which explains why its globalist authors have requested anonymity. “Resistance” poses a clear and present danger to the world order of sovereign nations. Americans must recognize the humanitarian hoax being performed in “Resistance” and stop buying tickets at the box office.

Voters are being urged to invest in “Resistance,” and millions of dollars are being spent to promote it. This particular globalist extravaganza enjoys record levels of free publicity by the mainstream media and on the Internet.

The 2020 presidential elections will determine the success or failure of “Resistance.” Voting Americans will decide if art imitates life or if life imitates art.

For Democrats Factionalism is leading to Fracturing

According to Merriam-Webster a faction is defined as, “a party or group (as within a government) that is often contentious or self-seeking.”

The Democratic Party has embraced the notion that they must be the party of factions such as: blacks, Hispanics, gays, Muslims, Socialists, Communists, unions, etc. This is called intersectionality or,

the complex, cumulative way in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, or intersect especially in the experiences of marginalized individuals or groups.

Democrats are the party of factions that self-identify as victims.

These factions then use their victimhood based upon identity politics to attack perceived enemies. Hence, if you are not a person of color you are automatically labeled a racist. If you aren’t gay you are automatically called homophobic (in fear of being gay). If you aren’t a Muslim then you are assumed to be Islamophobic, having a fear of all Muslims. Muslims also hold a fear called Fitna (Arabic الفتنة) of anyone who causes unease or discord within the Muslim community (ummah) whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims.

What happens when a faction turns on another faction?

This creating a coalition of factions works for a while but at some point the coalition begins to fracture and causes growing internal turmoil. Because each faction is, by definition, “self-serving” this often leads to one faction turning on another when it feels it is being “marginalized.”

The most recent example is the ongoing feud between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). In a New York Post column by Joe Tacopino reported:

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post.

“But the persistent singling out — it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful — the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

Earlier in the week, Pelosi mocked her and freshman progressive colleagues Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley for their Twitter-based influence. [Emphasis added]

During the second Democratic presidential primary debate Senator Kamala Harris attacked Joe Biden’s record on race. Harris is a “woman of color” while Biden is white. Watch:

This is just the beginning. We are seeing Muslim parents concerned about the introduction of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in public schools which promotes “gender identity.” The Muslim faith rejects sodomy and any attempt to push it on their children. Watch:

Throw the mega Democratic donor, and close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, pedophile Jeffery Epstein scandal on the fire, the DOJ IG report on FISA abuse and the DOJ investigation into the Obama administration and Clinton campaign’s investments in the fake dossier this will be a very interesting presidential primary season.

CONCLUSION

The 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential debates will turn into mud slinging contests. Factions will turn on factions. This will fracture the Democratic party’s voters.

11 Highlights From Democrats’ Insult Fest Between Team Pelosi And Team Ocasio-Cortez

Donald Trump: America’s Greenest President

America has never been cleaner or greener in the post-industrial revolution era.

This week President Trump made a major speech showcasing the good health of America’s environment and gains made on his watch.

Both are impressive.

Read the full text of the President’s remarksthe full White House fact sheet on the environment, and commentary by CFACT’s Adam Houser at CFACT.org.

America has the cleanest air and the best drinking water on record. Overall pollution levels are in decline.

As Adam Houser points out, you’d never know it from reading the press coverage.

The Green movement in America has gone astray.  Left-leaning politicians make futile gestures such as banning plastic bags, water bottles and drinking straws and subsidizing solar panels, electric cars and wind turbines.  None of this improves our environment, and in many circumstances actually hurts it.

In contrast, the Trump Administration has refocused America’s national efforts on genuine conservation work, and this has borne positive results including:

  • EPA has been been able to clean up Superfund sites at the fastest clip since 2005, and is on track to set a record this year.
  • Real steps are being taken to improve forest management and genuinely reduce the risk of wildfires.  All the green toys in the world could never accomplish that.
  • The federal government has come to the aid of the state of Florida to effectively combat red tide and keep Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades clean.
  • Despite alarms about withdrawing from the Paris accord, America is now leading the world on reducing CO2 emissions (if that’s your thing) while also leading the world in energy production.
  • Millions of acres are being opened up to hunting and fishing with wildlife expanding at a rapid clip.

While no means perfect, the Trump Administration is no doubt headed in a positive direction. It seems to recognize, unlike its predecessor under Obama, that man and nature can advance together, not in opposition. In this there is much to celebrate.

Head on over to CFACT.org for full details.

Indoors or out, this is a time of unprecedented well being in America. The summer months also provide us a great time to go outdoors and revel in America’s natural beauty. Unless, that is, you live in one of the broken cities run by the Left, such as Seattle, or San Francisco, where tent cities spring up and human waste clogs the streets.

Bottom line: If you care about sparking water, clean air, lush green spaces, and thriving wildlife, recognize that now is the best time in recent history to be alive.

To the chagrin of Greens everywhere, President Trump may well become our nation’s greenest President.

What Rudyard Kipling’s Poem “If” Teaches Us

Back in the 1960’s and 1970’s, the poem “If” by the renowned author Rudyard Kipling was a favorite on college campuses, and was frequently quoted at graduation ceremonies. I have been an admirer of it for many years and have taken Kipling’s lessons to heart. I just wish more people did likewise in these hate-filled political times. If we all took the lessons embodied in his poem to heart, I’m sure we would be more respectful and tolerant of each other. I would like to believe this should be read to every student in school or college at the beginning of the year.

Here is John Facenda’s rendition of Kipling’s “If”:

“IF” — by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

The poem was originally published in 1910 by Kipling who was well known as a Freemason; from Hope and Perseverance Lodge No. 782. E.C., in Lahore, India (now Pakistan, near the India border). The Brotherhood tries to instill a sense of morality in its members, and promotes tolerance for those of different faiths and political persuasions. The lessons inculcated here in this poem are common sense and could easily be construed as derived from Masonic lectures.

Through his poem, Brother Kipling is trying to teach us in order to lead a mature and positive life, we should actively try to practice patience and understanding. Further, life is short and the best way to socialize and get ahead in this crazy world is to simply keep your wits about you. This isn’t quite as easy as it seems, particularly in the 21st century where road rage is common, office rage, political rage, religious rage, marriage rage, etc. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I blame a lot of our problems regarding impatience and intolerance on the excessive use of technology where our expectations are programmed to do everything instantaneously, and we resent any form of delay, be it a speed limit, waiting in line, or arguing with another, particularly regarding politics. Patience seems to be in short supply these days.

Practicing patience is an important part of our ability to socialize with others. Quite often, we believe it is someone else causing our frustration, and maybe that’s true. However, we must also admit we create our own problems by being self-centered and not practicing a little common courtesy to others. As Kipling reminds us, if you can maintain your focus, if you can remain calm in the midst of catastrophe, and do unto others as you would have others do unto you…

“Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!”

Keep the Faith!

“We don’t need more laws. Just enforce the ones already on the books”.

We at Vlad Tepes have been saying this for years and years about nearly all the problems facing the West today. We already have the tools. Its that they are ignored, or more often, selectively enforced to an antithetical agenda to the West.

VIDEO: Senator Mitch McConnell hits his opponent with her own words in viral video.

The McConnell campaign has created the website “Wrong Path McGrath“. The website uses Amy McGrath’s own words. McGrath is the Democrat running for McConnell’s Senate seat.

On the website is the following video titled “Welcome”:

According to the Wrong Path McGrath website:

Democratic Congressional candidate Amy McGrath said she felt the same way after President Donald Trump’s election victory as she did after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

McGrath, who recently won the Democratic primary for Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District, spoke at a “Meet the Candidates Series” event on Nov. 20, 2017 where she said she woke up the morning after Trump was elected feeling as if she had been sucker punched.

“And then, of course, the results of the election, we have a new commander-in-chief. And that morning I woke up like somebody had sucker punched me. I mean, I felt like, ‘what has just happened to my country?’” McGrath said at the event hosted by Indivisible Bourbon County.

“The only feeling I can describe that’s any close to it was the feeling I had after 9/11,” McGrath said.

“‘What just happened, where are we going from here,’ and it was that just sinking feeling of sadness, and I didn’t know what to do.”

Approximately 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including military officials and employees in the Pentagon and many rescue workers in New York City.

The National Republican Congressional Committee called on McGrath to apologize for her “deeply insensitive, divisive, and disappointing” rhetoric.

“In her own words, Amy McGrath woke up the morning after President Donald Trump’s election feeling the same way she felt after a terrorist attack where 2,977 Americans were killed,” NRCC press secretary Maddie Anderson said. “Her rhetoric is deeply insensitive, divisive, and disappointing. She should apologize immediately for saying that our President’s election caused her to experience the same emotions as the families of 9/11 victims.”

McGrath isn’t the first congressional candidate to make controversial connections of the sort. Dan Helmer, a Democrat who unsuccessfully ran this year in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, compared Trump to 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.

McGrath was the first female Marine to fly an F-18 Hornet in combat and has strong support from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. She will face Rep. Andy Barr (R.) in the November general election.

Things are heating up ahead of the 2020 election.

QUESTIONS THE CANDIDATES MUST ANSWER: And the one question that will expose those who actually hate you.

The first two Presidential primary debates are behind us but before Election Day there will be many, many more to come.

Typically the news media not only broadcast the debates but are quick to report on the statements and responses made by the candidate participants.

However, what receives little attention are the questions that were asked and the questions that were not asked by the journalist-moderators. This is a new version of “don’t ask – don’t tell!”

The importance of questions cannot be underestimated. My dad sagely told me that the only “dumb” question is the one you don’t ask.

The French philosopher Voltaire famously opined that you should judge a person’s intelligence by the questions he asks.

As an agent, my ability to ask the right question at the right time was a vital skill and one that I worked at for my entire career.

The questioning of an individual in a formal setting comes in two forms, the initial question and the follow-up question(s). I compare this to boxing. The initial question is not unlike the jab while the follow-up question is like the punch to the jaw and may actually score the knockout.

During the first two Democratic Primary debates many issues were raised that actually have relevance to the immigration crisis, yet this connection was never made.

Inasmuch as the “war on terror” continues and the “all clear” has not sounded and is not likely to sound for quite some time, I would want to start out by asking each and every candidate for any significant political office, but particularly for the Presidency, if he/she had read the 9/11 Commission Report and the companion report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel in their entirety.

The 9/11 Commission was convened specifically to learn from our mistakes to protect America and Americans from future terror attacks.

The President of the United States is also the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces and is also of all federal law enforcement agencies.

Any serious candidate for the Presidency must consider those reports to be “required reading.”

The preface of the report 9/11 and Terrorist Travel begins with the following:

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

It went on to state:

Although there is evidence that some land and sea border entries (of terrorists) without inspection occurred, these conspirators mainly subverted the legal entry system by entering at airports.

In doing so, they relied on a wide variety of fraudulent documents, on aliases, and on government corruption. Because terrorist operations were not suicide missions in the early to mid-1990s, once in the United States terrorists and their supporters tried to get legal immigration status that would permit them to remain here, primarily by committing serial, or repeated, immigration fraud, by claiming political asylum, and by marrying Americans. Many of these tactics would remain largely unchanged and undetected throughout the 1990s and up to the 9/11 attack.

Thus, abuse of the immigration system and a lack of interior immigration enforcement were unwittingly working together to support terrorist activity. It would remain largely unknown, since no agency of the United States government analyzed terrorist travel patterns until after 9/11. This lack of attention meant that critical opportunities to disrupt terrorist travel and, therefore, deadly terrorist operations were missed.

Here is yet another excerpt:

Terrorists in the 1990s, as well as the September 11 hijackers, needed to find a way to stay in or embed themselves in the United States if their operational plans were to come to fruition. As already discussed, this could be accomplished legally by marrying an American citizen, achieving temporary worker status, or applying for asylum after entering. In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.

This then lays the groundwork for these followup questions:

  1. Given the above-noted, how could any serious candidate call for permitting aliens to enter the United States without vetting and then permit them to apply for political asylum?
  2. How could you insist on a massive amnesty program to provide unknown millions of illegal aliens with lawful status even though there are no resources to interview all of these aliens, let alone conduct field investigations?
  3. We have seen terrorists easily commit immigration fraud, what would you do to address this vulnerability. Indeed, the candidates who demand the dismantling of ICE need to be pointedly asked how they could justify such a dangerous tactic?

On April 30, 2019 the Justice Department issued a press release, Jordanian National Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Bring Aliens into the United States, which noted that in 2017 the smuggler smuggled aliens from Yemen, a “Special Interest Country” into the United States without inspection from Monterrey, Mexico to Piedras Negras in Texas.

On April 12, 2017, the Washington Times reported, Sharafat Ali Khan smuggled terrorist-linked immigrants.

During the debate Bernie Sanders stated that there are individuals fleeing from Honduras because of gangs. He made it clear that he would permit all of these aliens to enter the United States and apply for asylum. He was never challenged as to how he would prevent the gang members from Honduras or any other country, for that matter, from entering the United States where they easily ply their violent, sociopathic “trades” often targeting the members of the ethnic immigrant communities.

Mr. Sanders should read the transcripts of several hearings on the issue of transnational gangs:

On June 20, 2017 the House Homeland Security Committee, Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence conducted a field hearing on Long Island in Central Islip, New York, on the topic, Combating Gang Violence On Long Island: Shutting Down The MS-13 Pipeline.

On June 21, 2017 the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on “The MS-13 Problem: Investigating Gang Membership, its Nexus to Illegal Immigration, and Federal Efforts to End the Threat.”

On November 21, 2013 the Washington Times reported, Mexican drug cartels exploit asylum system by claiming ‘credible fear.’

The report quoted Bob Goodlatte, the then-Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee:

It’s outrageous that members of Mexican drug cartels and others involved in illicit activity are so easily able to exploit our asylum laws and live in the U.S. virtually undetected,” said Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican.

Our asylum laws are in place to help individuals who are facing truly serious persecution in their country,” he said. “However, dangerous criminals are gaming the system by claiming they have a ‘credible fear’ of persecution when often they’ve been the perpetrators of violence themselves.

Concerns about the lack of integrity to this system were the focus of two House Judiciary Committee hearings conducted as a result of Chairman Goodlatte’s concerns:

Asylum Abuse: Is it Overwhelming our Borders?

Asylum Fraud: Abusing America’s Compassion?

Of course while one of the hearings focused on how asylum abuse was overwhelming our borders, in reality, asylum abuse is overwhelming the entire immigration system throughout the entire United States of America.

At the conclusion of my recent interview on Fox & Friends First to discuss the border crisis, I asked the rhetorical question that should be asked of all of the candidates:

“Would you board an airliner if you saw several of your fellow passengers sneak past the TSA at the airport?- Why then are we being forced to live among millions of aliens who ran our borders and evaded a similar vetting process conducted at ports of entry?”

Former Florida Democrat Senate Candidate Anis Blemur Sentenced in $1.6 million Investment Scam involving Haitians

Tallahassee, Fla. – The Florida Office of Financial Regulation announced that Anis Blemur has been sentenced to more than 7 years (92 months) in federal prison and 5 years of supervised release for his role in an investment scheme that stole more than $1.6 million from victims in South Florida’s Haitian community. Anis Auguste Blemur was a 2014 and 2016 Democratic Party candidate for District 38 of the Florida State Senate. District 38 represents Miami/Dade County.

Alex Toledo, OFR Acting Bureau Chief of Financial Investigations, said,

“Thank you to the investigators and our partners for their efforts in bringing this criminal to justice, and putting a stop to these scams. We will continue to aggressively fight to protect Floridians from financial fraud.”

In April 2019, Anis Blemur pled guilty to charges of wire fraud, money laundering and aggravated identity theft for his role in the scams.

Blemur claimed he was raising money for real estate investments through the sale of promissory notes that were secured by real estate.

However, a joint OFR-FBI investigation revealed that Blemur used investors’ money for his personal expenses.

The investigation exposed an additional scam, where Blemur solicited homebuyers and persuaded them to place their down payment money in an escrow account.

In fact, there was no escrow account and Blemur used the money for his personal benefit.

In addition to these scams, Blemur used victims’ personal identifying information to apply for 26 credit cards.

Florida’s thirty-eighth state senate district is currently represented by Democratic Senator Jason Pizzo.

In a July 4th Announcement, Pro-Trump Law Professor Victor Williams Challenges Mark Warner in Virginia U.S Senate

ARLINGTON, Va. /PRNewswire/ — On July 4, 2019, attorney and well-known Pro-Trump law professor Victor Williams formally announced his 2020 run for the U.S Senate from Virginia.

Branding his Senate campaign Victor for Williams, his website — vw4v.com — states “16 years of Mark ‘Russia-Hoaxer’ Warner is enough.” 

Prof. Williams was a very-early 2016 Donald Trump supporter. Williams founded and chairs “Law Professors for Trump” to fight for our 45th President, for America First policies, and for confirmation of Trump nominees.

Williams’s group takes this fight to the media and to the federal courts. The independent association of law faculty is now advancing Trump’s 2020 re-election.

Professor Williams chose beautiful Occoquan Regional Park, at the Leadership Institute’s 49th Annual Conservative July 4th Soiree, for his campaign launch. Virginians from across the state attended the celebrated event.

Williams’ early Senate campaign has already seen success. As he announced on July 4th, and as his website (vw4v.com), states its goal:

We seek to ‘jumpstart’ the GOP Senate nominee selection process to insure that Virginia Republicans have ample time to both raise funds for and unify around the strongest woman or man that emerges from the scrum.”   

Just four days after Williams’ announcement, on July 8th, former congressman Scott Taylor did just that — formally announcing his decision to run. Williams immediately praised Taylor for his “stellar service to our nation – both in the military and in Congress.”

Williams welcomed Taylor to the race and expressed hope that other contenders would begin the race early, saying,

“With Republicans unified and working together from the beginning, I know that Mark ‘Russia-Hoaxer’ Warner will be soundly defeated in November 2020.” 

At his own July 4th campaign launch, Williams stated that his early campaign launch was also the beginning of a historic effort to appeal to conservative-moderate Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents to reject Warner:

“Working together against Warner, Virginians of all (or no) partisan stripes, can send the DC swamp a populist message — America First. Stand Proud with President Trump, or Stand Aside.

National Democrats Order Warner to “Jump,” and He Responds “How Far Left?”

For years, Mark Warner has dutifully asked “how high?” anytime the national party ordered him to “jump.”   Now Warner asks: “how far left?” 

And Virginians now respond:  “16 years of Mark Warner is enough — way too much!”

Williams is harshly critical of incumbent Warner for following national Democrats in their hard-left lurch to:

  • Legalize and Encourage Late-Term Abortion and Post-Birth Infanticide;
  • Raise Taxes and Kill Economic Growth with Regulations;
  • Open the Southern Border to Mass Alien Inflows (an Invasion by any other name) and then give Illegal Aliens Free Health Care;
  • Eliminate Medicare and Perhaps even Private Insurance with Socialist Insurance Schemes;
  • Enact Parts of AOC’s Green-New-Deal Fantasy that Immediately Kills Virginia’s coal Industry;
  • Strip-Away American History Memorials, Traditions, and Statutes. Threaten Constitutionally Guaranteed Rights (by restricting free speech, free religious exercise, and individual firearm possession).

Williams says that Warner betrays Virginia values and Virginia voters.

Warner has repeatedly embarrassed Virginia by his absurd anti-Trump slanders, and his partisan Russia-hoax investigations against President Trump, the Trump family and Administration associates.

Like so many elitists suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, Warner just cannot accept the truth. No Collusion.  No Obstruction.

Instead, it was Mark Warner who was caught having extensive contacts with a Russian oligarch’s lobbyist (March and April of 2017) to gin-up the hoax.

Williams’s Senate campaign will explain how ongoing anti-Trump congressional investigations are unconstitutional. They “are just the latest shameful stage in the establishment crusade against disruptive Donald Trump and the 2016 American voters.”   

Prof. Victor Williams calls for all Virginians to “Stand Proud with President Trump” and defeat Mark ‘Russia-Hoaxer’ Warner.

Antifa Is Dangerous and It’s Time for the Feds to Step In

Enough is enough. The U.S. Justice Department needs to immediately open a criminal civil rights investigation of Antifa, an affiliation of radical activists and left-wing groups whose name, ironically enough, is short for “anti-fascists.”

Its attack on journalist Andy Ngo was beyond the pale. Federal law enforcement has an obligation to stop any extremist organization that is apparently organizing and precipitating violent attacks, especially if state and local authorities seem reluctant to take action against what has all the makings of a domestic terrorist organization.

We cannot have any confidence that the political leadership of the city of Portland will allow its local law enforcement to do anything about this, either.

The Portland Police Association released a statement after the attack criticizing the mayor for restricting the ability of the police to stop Antifa, saying, “Our hands are tied.”

The association also says it has no doubt that no such restrictions would not have been in place “if this violence had been directed at Antifa.”

Mayor Ted Wheeler claims that he had not “directed Police Chief Danielle Outlaw or other officials to change their approach to arrests,” in addition to “defend[ing] the city’s response, or lack thereof, to members of Antifa who [have] blocked traffic and harassed bystanders” in the past.

But even the U.S. ambassador to Germany criticized the city’s executive in a series of tweets, questioning what more needs to happen to Wheeler’s citizens before protective action will be taken. Wheeler’s inaction is even less defensible because the mayor of Portland is also its police commissioner.

Ngo was punched, pushed, robbed, and hit with tossed milkshakes purportedly mixed with quick-drying cement.

The well-known Quillette journalist wasn’t the only bystander attacked, as The Washington Times reports that “two [other] Oregon men—John Blum and Adam Kelly—were mobbed and pummeled by black-masked protesters in a horrific attack that left Mr. Blum bleeding profusely from wounds to his face and skull.”

Columnist Michelle Malkin noted that “both John & Adam were beaten by Antifa after trying to help a gay man in a sundress being chased down the street.” This all occurred in broad daylight, and was filmed by multiple bystanders while Portland police stood on the sidelines and did nothing to stop it.

The assault did not come out of nowhere. In fact, it seems to have been a targeted attack given that the protest planners specifically (and falsely) labeled Ngo as a “far-right Islamophobic journalist who … also targets the [Democratic Socialists of America] while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community” in advertising the event in the days leading up to the march.

Federal criminal law has a provision that applies directly to what Antifa is apparently doing: 18 U.S.C. §241 prohibits conspiracies to “injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person … in the exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States.”

Moreover, that same law prohibits individuals from going “in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured.”

Acting as a journalist, Ngo was obviously exercising his press freedom as secured by the First Amendment, and the Antifa thugs who attacked him violated Section 241, particularly since they were disguised.

Violating this statute is punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison.

Further, as noted in a 1951 University of Pennsylvania Law Review article, “the ‘in disguise’ language [that] began the section … had its origin in ‘the doings of the Ku Klux [Klan].’” Antifa seems to have adopted the KKK’s tactics.

Ngo also may have a personal claim for damages under federal law against Antifa and its members.

Another federal statute, 42 U.S.C. §1985(3), says, “If two or more persons … conspire or go in disguise … for the purpose of depriving … any person … of the equal protection of the laws, or of equal privileges and immunities under the laws … the party so injured [may recover] damages … against any one or more of the conspirators.”

As we now know, Wheeler failed to protect his citizens, as police were noticeably absent when Ngo was being attacked, despite Antifa’s long record of violence, attacks, and mob behavior.

As a result, Ngo may have a claim directly against Wheeler and other city officials under 42 U.S.C. §1986, which creates liability for anyone who “having knowledge that any of the wrongs conspired to be done” in violation of Section 1985 “are about to be committed, and having power to prevent or aid in preventing the commission” fails to do so.

As National Review’s Douglas Murray wrote in his article on the protest, the “real lesson of Saturday is that anybody interested in genuine anti-fascism should from now on aim themselves directly at Portland’s Antifa. These are the people of our day who behave most like fascists. It is high time that they were treated as such by officialdom and civil society alike.”

On It’s Going Down, a popular website for Antifa and its supporters, a 2016 blog post predicted the chaos that has now become commonplace in more “progressive” parts of the country.

When asked who on the left can respond to the inauguration of Donald Trump, the authors wrote:

The answer is clear as day, but it isn’t in the halls of power, in the politicians, the leaders of the unions, or in the big NGOs. Instead it’s in the rioters. The blockaders. The people in ski masks and in the streets. The ones on the front lines fighting with the cops.

It is shocking to assert that “rioters, blockaders, cop-fighters, and people in ski masks” are the enlightened nobility who can save our constitutional republic from internal ruin.

It is also plainly wrong. And it is time that federal law enforcement and Justice Department officials take notice of this potentially ominous threat to our civil society.

Dear Readers:

With the recent conservative victories related to tax cuts, the Supreme Court, and other major issues, it is easy to become complacent.

However, the liberal Left is not backing down. They are rallying supporters to advance their agenda, moving this nation further from the vision of our founding fathers.

If we are to continue to bring this nation back to our founding principles of limited government and fiscal conservatism, we need to come together as a group of likeminded conservatives.

This is the mission of The Heritage Foundation. We want to continue to develop and present conservative solutions to the nation’s toughest problems. And we cannot do this alone.

We are looking for a select few conservatives to become a Heritage Foundation member. With your membership, you’ll qualify for all associated benefits and you’ll help keep our nation great for future generations.

I Stand With Rush: Time To Take Action

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh passionately responded to a column which warned of a growing anti-Americanism in our country. Rush told his millions of listeners, “We are facing it right now, not 10 years from now.” Rush said do not misinterpret his concern to mean he has lost hope and given up on saving America. He said to view his rant as a clarion call for all who love our country to take action. Rush explained that he is not encouraging violence, but to simply start saying, “No!”

In essence, Rush is saying to stop passively permitting spoiled brat anti-American leftists to trash our flag, pull down historical monuments, demonize patriotism and our Christian founding. Stop allowing leftists to poison the minds of our youths with hatred for their country.

I share Rush’s frustration, particularly as it relates to my fellow black Americans.

Due to their criminal activities involving illegal drugs, two beloved black millennial relatives are in the hospital. One was severely beaten and the other is fighting for his life. Both young men live in Baltimore which is one of the cities controlled by Democrats, plagued with record levels of black on black crime.

Frustratingly, both young relatives are infected with Colin Kapernick’s, Democrats’ and fake news media’s bogus negative view of America. They believe being black in this awful racist country justifies them doing whatever necessary, legal or illegal, to survive.

Both young men were raised with Christian principles and values. If my dad, Dr Rev Lloyd E. Marcus was still alive, they would be too ashamed to look him in the eye. While I hold my relatives accountable for their bad behavior, it is unarguable that allowing Democrats, public education, entertainment and social media to fill our youths heads with hatred for their country has reaped devastating consequences.

Unfortunately, several members of my family are infected with leftists’ anti-Americanism and hatred for Republicans and Trump. At a family gathering, I was tempted to stand in the middle of the room and proclaim,

“Do y’all know Democrats want to kill babies, especially black babies, even after they are born? Do y’all know blacks are experiencing historic financial prosperity thanks to president Trump? 

Along with allowing leftists to infect our youths with anti-Americanism, we are passively watching the swift transformation of our culture away from biblical morality. LGBTQ enforcers are abusing our children while cramming their evil agenda down our throats.

Many Christians still do not comprehend the tyrannical aggressiveness of the LGBTQ movement. A Christian minister friend of 30 years stopped speaking to me for writing articles about LGBTQ aggression. He is deceived by leftists’ manipulative false narrative that says not embracing the LGBTQ lifestyle means we hate them. The truth is not embracing their sin means we love them.

Christian relatives instructed me not to post my articles exposing the LGBTQ war on gender and Christianity on their Facebook pages. Meanwhile, a shocked relative approached me at a family picnic. The relative said when they offered a 7 year old boy at the picnic a toy motorcycle, he said he didn’t want it because he is a girl. The relative noticed the lad was wearing a girl bracelet. Apparently, his parents are complicit in his gender confusion. I told the relative, “This is what I have been warning you guys about. This is the outrageous child abuse allowed to happen in our public schools.”

When my wife Mary read me this headline, I assumed it was fake. Sadly, it is not. “Kids Can Handle the Kink.” A deranged sex therapist said not only can children handle witnessing explicit sex acts during gay pride parades, it is beneficial to their healthy development.

A devastated gentleman emailed me: “My granddaughter, who is not yet 15…began displaying the LGBT banner on Facebook, declared herself transgender, erroneously said the Bible is a bunch of myths written by bored old men, erroneously said the Catholic Church condemns all gay people to hell, literally told me to get my head out of my ass, and then unfriended me on FB. Gee, I wonder where she got those ideas.” His granddaughter’s mother also ended her relationship with him.

The evening of July 4th, our nation’s birthday, I watched a YouTube video of the Statue of Liberty song. Sadly, the lyrics are not embraced by far too many young Americans today.

“I’m so proud to be called an American
To be named with the brave and the free
I will honor our flag and our trust in God
And the statue of liberty”

I stand with Rush Limbaugh folks. It is time that we take action to take back our country. It is time that we say no to anti-American traitors and anti-biblical cultural assassins.
