JFK put ‘The American’s Creed’ on his campaign posters — So Why Do Democrats Hate America?

As the Democratic Party’s candidates are preparing for the 2020 presidential primary I decided to compare what then candidate John F. Kennedy said and believed in comparison to what the current field of candidates say and believe.

In doing my research I came across a campaign poster for John Fitzgerald Kennedy [click here to view it]. The Kennedy poster states:

KENNEDY

“LET US NOT SEEK

the REPUBLICAN ANSWER

or the

DEMOCRATIC ANSWER

but the RIGHT answer

***

LET US NOT SEEK

to fix the blame

FOR THE PAST

LET US ACCEPT

our own

RESPONSIBILITY

for the

FUTURE.”

At the bottom of the poster was printed “The American’s Creed” written  by William Tyler Page. William Tyler Page was an American public servant. He worked on the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. for 61 years, first as a page boy and later as a clerk of the United States House of Representatives.

Here are the words printed exactly as they appear on then candidate Kennedy’s campaign poster:

I BELIEVE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AS A GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign NATION OF MANY SOVEREIGN STATES; a perfect union one and inseparable established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which AMERICAN PATRIOTS SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES AND FORTUNES. I therefore believe it is my DUTY TO MY COUNTRY to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

Let’s compare and contrast statements by the two leading Democratic Party candidates to the words of candidate John F. Kennedy.

Current front runner Joe Biden:

“…if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are, and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”

John F. Kennedy, “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer but the right answer.”

Bernie Sanders:

“Our campaign is about more than beating Donald Trump. It’s about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial, and environmental justice.”

John F. Kennedy, “I therefore believe it is my DUTY TO MY COUNTRY to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.”

Here is what President Trump said during his inaugural speech:

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another — but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People. 

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished — but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered — but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes — starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

President Trump sounds very much like JFK. More so than the candidates currently running on the Democratic ticket.

In Fact, Neither France Nor The U.S. Belong To Illegal Aliens

It appears that illegal aliens in France (known as “les sans-papiers,” which translates to “the ones without papers”) have begun imitating the tactics used by illegal aliens in the United States.

A few days ago, roughly 500 sans-papiers invaded Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport to protest France’s immigration policies. According to the New York Post, “The migrants reportedly refused to let passengers board [outgoing flights]until their demands were met….” They also insisted that Air France immediately cease, “any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations.”

That’s become pretty standard stuff in immigration protests. However, it was the demonstrators’ slogans that should give pause to the citizens of the developed West, whose countries are being overrun. As they were surrounded by riot police, the sans-papierschanted, “France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!”

That’s a shocking claim. At present, the world is organized around a system of independent nations described as “sovereign.” Sovereignty, is the notion that people may form political bonds and govern themselves any way they choose. It acknowledges that there is a philosophical wall around nations. Within that border, the nation-state is the highest political and legal authority. And no single nation has the authority to dictate how another conducts its internal affairs.  As such, France does, in fact, belong to the French, just as the United States belongs to Americans.

As an element of sovereignty, nations have the unfettered right to determine who may enter their territory. The Supreme Court of the United States summarized this very neatly in Ekiu v. United States saying, “It is an accepted maxim of international law that every sovereign nation has the power, as inherent in sovereignty, and essential to self-preservation, to forbid the entrance of foreigners within its dominions, or to admit them only in such cases and upon such conditions as it may see fit to prescribe.”

In plain English, that means any time outside forces are permitted to dictate who a particular nation must allow within its borders, that nation is no longer in control of its own political destiny. And it must always be wary of its sovereignty being slowly eroded by uncontrolled mass migration – and the political shifts that inevitably accompany rapid demographic change.

Europe’s “Syrian Refugee” crisis and America’s southern border crisis continue to drag on. Therefore both France and the U.S. should be asking themselves just how long they are willing to tolerate foreign trespassers who feel entitled to make unreasonable demands and dictate how immigration laws should be enforced. A failure to answer that question may very well lead to a loss of meaningful sovereignty and the dissolution of both France and the United States as we currently know them.

FLORIDA: Muslim Candidate Andy Imtiaz Says “America Runs on Hate” [Video]

Meet Andy Imtiaz, the Pakistani-American who believes “America runs on hate.” Also going by the name Imtiaz Ahmad Mohammed, the Asian Times CEO and business owner of 18 salons stands by an inflammatory series of statements against the United States.

Mohammad has been in the U.S. since 1991. He says he was motivated to run for office because of what he sees as a huge gap between Muslim communities and political engagement, a gap he sees as the root cause of current problems within the American Muslim community.

He ran in August 2018 for the Florida House of Representatives, District 97, but was defeated in the primary.

Mohammad is the founder of the American Muslim Progressive Caucus. According to a flyer that he posted to Facebook, AMPC’s mission is to build a progressive Muslim community. Further, the flyer stated:

Every American Muslim must register to vote and engage with American Political System to promote equality and Justice. Elect diverse candidates for the offices who respect all communities. VISION

We envision of future where Islam is understood as a source of dignity, justice, compassion and love for all humanity and the word.

Yet, Facebook posts from close to two years ago show Mohammad posing with sharia-apologist and Islamist agitator Linda Sarsour, as well as advertising event of ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America, a known Islamist organization). Sarsour was also one of the three speakers at that event.

In a candid interview for a Muslim audience, Mohammad sounds very much like a patriot at select points, which paints him as a complex candidate running for office.

Mohammad is critical of social champions and religious champions, while (as he says in the interview above) “we’re missing the most important part of civic engagement.” According to Mohammad, this is due to a lack of engagement in society and that lack of engagement leads to a blame game and increased victimhood. He says,

“I’m not running to win or lose. My goal is to be an example for all people … A Muslim candidate on the ballot …

Most people have moved to this country for the betterment of their life. Most organizations are in the United States. How many mosques do we have? How many social institutions do we have?” 

However, as he continues to elaborate, these movements don’t have a greater impact on the Muslim community. Civic service, he believes, is a solution to that feeling of disengagement between American Muslims and the larger American society.

Mohammad’s select comments are inflammatory, but he’s certainly a candidate worth watching for how he’s shifting the narrative.

Taming the Bench: MAGA Means Ending the Precedent of Judicial Precedent

“It is a maxim among these lawyers, that whatever hath been done before may legally be done again: and therefore they take special care to record all the decisions formerly made against common justice and the general reason of mankind. These, under the name of precedents, they produce as authorities, to justify the most iniquitous opinions; and the judges never fail of decreeing accordingly.” So said Anglo-Irish essayist Jonathan Swift in Gulliver’s Travels in 1726. Unfortunately, something has changed almost three centuries later:

The decisions have perhaps become even more iniquitous.

Swift was rightly mocking the notion of “judicial precedent.” Yet it’s even more preposterous in our time and place, for at least 18th-century British judges didn’t have a constitution to violate. How is the principle even remotely defensible, however, in a nation with our Constitution, the “supreme law of the land”?

One justice who apparently understands this is Clarence Thomas, who just wrote the majority opinion in a recent decision (Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt) overturning a 1979 precedent. He was the ideal candidate for the task, as it has been noted that he’s not a “Court conservative” as much as an originalist. A conservative, after all, would hew to the status quo, which here means honoring precedent. In contrast, as SCOTUSblog pointed out in 2007, Thomas “believes that precedent qua precedent concerning constitutional law has no value at all; he does not give stare decisis [the notion that judicial decisions should not be undone] any weight.”

This is why I’ve long said that Thomas is by far the best SCOTUS justice of recent decades (yes, that includes Scalia). Moreover, it’s certainly right to distinguish between Thomas’ originalism and being merely a “Court conservative,” which more and more is seeming akin to a court jester.

Why this is so was encapsulated well by British philosopher G.K. Chesterton when he wrote, “The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Even when the revolutionist might himself repent of his revolution, the traditionalist is already defending it as part of his tradition.”

Stare decisis’ folly should be obvious. In what other field would anyone assert that once a decision is made, it stays made? Since it’s a statistical certainty that not all decisions will be good ones, this standard only ensures the permanency of error.

Yet to fully grasp stare decisis’ outrageousness, an analogy is useful. Chief Justice John Roberts once correctly said that a judge’s role is only to call “balls and strikes” (this was before he decided that a ball could be a strike when striking a blow for statism). Expanding on this, judges are in fact like baseball umpires, whereas the players are akin to the people, the sport’s ruling body is a sort of legislature and the rulebook is essentially its constitution.

Now, it goes without saying that if an umpire “ruled” contrary to the rulebook — let’s say, refusing to call a player out after three strikes because he believed they were too few — we wouldn’t flatter his falsity and legitimize his legerdemain by calling him a “pragmatist” with a “living document” philosophy. We’d recognize him as a bad umpire derelict in his duty, and he’d be fired.

To the point, however, what would you say about someone who not only accepted his judgment, but viewed it as unchangeable “precedent”?

This notion is just as ridiculous when applied to judges — only far more dangerous. It should in fact disqualify someone from the bench, for justices take an oath to uphold the Constitution.

They do not take an oath to uphold other judges.

Imagine the reaction if we applied this stare decisis philosophy to President Trump’s determinations. Imagine we said that not only can he “change” the law on the basis that it’s “living,” but that his decisions should then be binding on all future presidents. How would that go over?

No, the analogy isn’t invalid because he’s not a black-robed lawyer. All these office-holders take an oath to uphold the Constitution — and none of them are supposed to be above that supreme law of the land.

Many want to be, though. Power is an aphrodisiac, and this brings us to why judges’ love affair with precedent reflects nothing noble. As Thomas Jefferson explained in an 1820 letter in which he warned about judicial supremacy, “Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privileges of their corps.”

This was perhaps reflected in liberal Justice Stephen Breyer’s reaction to the recently overturned precedent. “Today’s decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the court will overrule next,” he complained. A good justice would be concerned only with what unconstitutional precedent would not be overturned next.

But why is Breyer upset? Is it because he wants to maintain the power of his corps and its privilege of being above the law?

Stare decisis is just a euphemistic way of saying that judges’ decisions — “precedent” — should take precedence over the Constitution. This perverts our system. It undermines the republic. We’re supposed to be a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. The Constitution reflects the people’s will in that it was ratified by the states and because Americans tacitly approve it to this day it by allowing it to stand; after all, they can amend it through their representatives.

Yet when judges place their own opinions above the Constitution, such as when elevating precedent, they establish themselves as an oligarchy. We then don’t have the rule of law but the rule of lawyers, a government of, by and for those who’ve arrogated to themselves the power and privilege to manipulate the law according to their own will.

Note, too, that hard and fast respect for precedent actually has no precedent, as our history’s more than 100 overturned SCOTUS decisions attest. So why do leftists now act as if it’s sacrosanct?

Because after more than a century of moving the courts “left,” there’s now a large body of unconstitutional, leftist precedents that serve their agenda. Stare decisis is not for these people principle but ploy, a convenient value of the moment.

Thus, when going through the Senate confirmation process, the norm now is for more “conservative” judges to be asked if they’ll abide by certain precedents (i.e., Roe v. Wade). Translated, this is a demand to conserve yesterday’s progressives’ mistakes.

In reality, judicial nominees should be asked if they’ll respect precedent — and then be roundly rejected upon answering yes. For we can’t MAGA unless we MAJJA: Make American Judges Judges Again. For tolerating oligarchs in black robes ensures a dark future.

VIDEO: I Don’t Do Cover-Ups

The Deep State and the Democrats are in complete panic mode as Pelosi pulls a trigger and ignites a bomb in a war of words stating that the President is covering up the Russia probe. In addition to that, they have invoked the “I” word as President Trump indicated, that being, impeachment. Here’s my take on this and it’s short and sweet.

Team Trump is narrowing in on them and they know that their covers, firewalls and insurance policies have blown up in their faces. Trump has laid all the traps and they are being drawn into them. The stage is being set for the checkmate.

Hang in there fellow patriots, hang in there. There will be NO impeachment and Trump has nothing to cover up. The whole damn thing was a hoax. The Deep State, and the Dems are in full scale panic mode gasping for their last breath as the de-class is underway. They are all going down. Think it’s intense now? Watch what happens over the coming weeks and months. We are with you President Trump. The people are with you 100%.

New Investigators Examine the Origins of the Mueller Investigation

There must be “consequences” for those claiming Russian collusion if Mueller report shows none.  – Tucker Carlson

Democrats continue to show day in and day out, they’re nothing but sore losers. At some point, they have to realize that they have been beat by President Trump in the 2016 election. They’re getting beat … on issues that actually matter, and I think they’re a sad excuse for a political party right now. At some point, they have to decide if they want to govern.  – Sarah Sanders

This is not a game! This is the president of the United States. This nation deserves full-time leadership and no further effort to subvert, to overthrow the presidency of Donald J. Trump.  – Lou Dobbs


When during their exhaustive 22-month investigation did Mueller and his team of Hillary supporting Democratic prosecutors realize they had no case?  Probably no later than at the end of 2017, but I’d guess from the beginning.  By the time Mueller was appointed on May 17, 2017, the FBI had been trying unsuccessfully for nearly a year to corroborate the bogus Steele dossier’s allegations.

Democrats and their complicit media are far worse than sore losers.  They have done everything in their power to destroy President Trump from the day he declared his candidacy.  They hate him, they hate his supporters and they hate anyone who righteously campaigned for him.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

It is clear that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI participated in a fraud on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in order to surveil U.S. citizen Carter Page.  Signing on behalf of the DOJ were Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Sally Yates, then-Acting DAG Dana Boente, and then current DAG Rod Rosenstein who each signed one or more FISA applications.

Rod Rosenstein approved the application to extend surveillance of former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The NYTs claimed the FBI and DOJ’s application was based partially on research by investigator Christopher Steele, who compiled the spurious dossier.

When Rosenstein testified in a House hearing about FBI and DOJ abuses, he was asked by former judge Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) about the FISA warrant he signed and Rosenstein looked to FBI Director Wray for the answer – a move that disturbed Gohmert.  Rosenstein said he signed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) documents to spy on Carter Page and told Congressman Gohmert that he didn’t need to read every document he signed, that he merely needed to understand what’s in it.

Now that Rosenstein has stepped down, he is doing everything he can to cover his backside. But he was the one who gave an open letter of appointment to Robert Mueller to conduct an investigation confirmed by then FBI Director James Comey before the House Permanent Select Committee on March 20, 2017.  And it was Rosenstein who wrote the letter to President Trump stating Comey needed to be fired.

That started this entire nightmare-from-hell for not only the President, but his administration, supporters and the entire country.  The people who ran the DOJ were vicious dogs, and yes, our bloated government uses “national security” to cover up their crimes.

There is far too much on Rod Rosenstein that doesn’t make sense.  He is far too chummy with Mueller, Comey and Wray to really want true justice.  And few believe he didn’t want to wear a wire and record our President.

The Sordid Mueller Investigation

The Mueller investigation is finally over and $35 million American tax dollars have been spent on researching and investigating the cooked up lies of Hillary Clinton and the DNC “paid for” Steele dossier which led to this fictitious probe.  And all those tax dollars were paid to attorneys who hate Donald Trump.  Andrew Weissmann was the man given authority to hire the rest of the investigators for Robert Mueller, and Weissmann should have been disbarred long ago after the Enron case where he bent or broke rules to get false guilty pleas.

The resulting investigation prosecuted Americans for everything except the “collusion” it was supposed to uncover, many of whom will suffer lasting affects.

Weissmann was Mueller’s legal Pit Bull and the two of them worked hand in glove using the same rotten modus operandi they’ve effectively employed for over thirty years.  Those in their crosshairs even plead guilty to charges that weren’t crimes.  They also plead guilty to save family members, and they pleaded guilty when they’d previously been investigated by the government and found innocent. They pleaded guilty when those on the left did far worse and were never charged…i.e., Podesta’s and Biden’s.  Financial destruction was imminent for all targeted by Mueller.

Sidney Powell wrote the tell-all book, Licensed to Lie, and it exposed the corruption of justice especially in the Enron case.  Powell served in the Department of Justice for ten years in Texas and Virginia and has devoted her private practice to federal appeals for the past twenty years.  “All of the cases Weissmann pushed to trial were reversed in whole or in part due to some form of his overreaching and abuses,” Sidney Powell told The Washington Times. “The most polite thing the Houston bar said about Weissmann was that he was a madman.”  In early 2018, Sara Carter reported that Weissmann and Mueller were connected to two of the largest scandals in FBI history, and they got away with it.

Bill Barr’s Investigators

What are the odds that the Durham investigation will bring the corrupt players to justice?  Certainly, there is hope with the new Attorney General William Barr.  However, knowing government machinations, I am not holding my breath.  Yet…justice is so longed for, and John Durham looks to be the man who could give it to us!

John Durham, the prosecutor appointed by AG Barr to investigate how Trump-Russia allegations emerged and spread within federal law enforcement, has already been looking into whether the FBI’s former top lawyer, James Baker, illegally leaked to reporters.

The U.S. attorney from Connecticut appears to have begun that work more than seven months ago, to judge from an underreported transcript of an October congressional interview with Baker.  Could it be that Acting U.S. AG, Matthew Whitaker, who succeeded Jeff Sessions and held the post from early November 2018 to February 14, 2019, tapped John Durham?

Mr. Durham has a long history of serving as a special prosecutor investigating potential wrongdoing among law enforcement and national security officials. He was appointed to the federal bench in 2017 by President Trump. Attorney Durham has even investigated the use or misuse of FBI informants.

In fact, one of his best-known investigations was of the FBI’s handling of the mass murderer and Boston mobster Whitey Bulger.   It was Robert Mueller, Mr. Integrity, who kept four innocent people in prison for decades in order to keep Whitey Bulger from being exposed as an FBI informant. Four people who were innocent were kept in jail for years in order to protect the status of murdering Whitey Bulger as an FBI informant.

In 1999, AG Janet Reno appointed Durham to investigate if FBI informants Bulger and his buddy, Stephen Flemmi had corrupted their FBI handlers.  In December 2000, Durham revealed secret FBI documents that convinced a judge to vacate the 1968 murder convictions of the four other FBI informants because they’d been framed by Robert Mueller’s FBI.  Two of those four men died in prison.  Mueller kept four innocent people in jail for years to protect the informant status of Whitey Bulger, a mass-murdering Boston mobster who ended up dying in California, and it ended up costing American taxpayers $100 million plus in civil judgments.  For the full story, purchase John Milkovich’s book, Robert Mueller: Errand Boy for the New World Order.

Former federal prosecutor, Nora Dannehy agreed to join Durham two months ago.  Dannehy prosecuted complex political corruption, including cases resulting in the convictions of former Connecticut Gov. John G. Rowland and former state Treasurer Paul Silvester. In 2008, she was assigned to Washington to investigate whether prosecutors in the President George W. Bush justice department had been fired for political reasons.

William Barr has enlisted the help of the CIA to investigate whether the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign was motivated by partisan bias.

CIA director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and FBI director Chris Wray are all participating in the investigation, which Barr first announced publicly during a congressional hearing last month.

Is this a danger sign or an indication that someone highly knowledgeable is on the case?  Christopher Wray is part of the Deep State; he’s covered for many of the corrupt in the FBI and made derogatory remarks regarding our President.  He should never be involved.  As for Gina Haspell, we don’t know where she stands.

John Huber

For eighteen months we’ve not heard a peep out of John Huber, he’s MIA and as a U.S. attorney who oversees federal prosecutions in the District of Utah, we should have heard something.  Even Jim Jordan has commented that Huber is like “Where’s Waldo?”  Where’s Huber?

There has been nary a public peep from U.S. Attorney John Huber, the man Jeff Sessions assigned to get to the bottom of things.  Likely witnesses say Mr. Huber has never contacted them, and members of Congress say they are still in the dark despite regular pleas to see progress.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department prosecutor and now a private lawyer, with her husband, Joe diGenova, said of the Huber investigation, “It is a head fake, a farce.  It was an attempt by Sessions to get Republicans off his back. I’m embarrassed for them because they fell for it, and I hope something happens now.”  Link

Allegedly Huber is working collaboratively in the internal investigation with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, but we have no idea when that report will be made public.

Conclusion

Barr told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing, “I am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016. I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal, I think spying did occur, yes.”  The mainstream media hates that he used the word “spying,” but Barr has openly said it’s a perfect word to use.

And now, Barack Obama’s corrupt officials, including former Attorney General Eric Holder are all lashing out at AG Bill Barr because he has launched a massive investigation into the origins of Spygate.

They’re even harping at each other because of their fear of what John Durham’s investigation might lead to… perhaps grand jury indictments for many of them.

We can only hope!

In Australia, Conservatives Won a Shock Victory. There’s a Lesson Here for Conservatives Worldwide.

When Australians went to the polls over the weekend, it was universally expected that the left-wing Labor Party would emerge the winner.

To the shock of the pollsters, however, the left lost.

In Australia, the Liberals are the conservative party, and so it was the conservatives who won a surprise victory. In a 151-seat House of Representatives, the Liberal Party, with its longtime coalition partner the Nationals, have so far won (or lead in) 78 seats, with Labor well behind at 67 seats, and six seats going to minor parties.

The Labor leader, Bill Shorten, has already resigned, saying, “It is obvious that Labor will not be able to form the next government.”

The current and now future prime minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, said simply, “I’ve always believed in miracles.”

Morrison ran a canny campaign that allowed his party to recover after it ousted Malcolm Turnbull, the former Liberal prime minister, last August.

A social conservative and devout Christian, Morrison’s appeal was folksy, with slogans like “a fair go for those who have a go.” In the U.S., we’d say “a fair deal if you try.” Different words, but the same sentiment.

Labor, by contrast, ran mostly on climate change. On Sunday, in fact, The New York Times led with the story “It was supposed to be Australia’s climate change election. What happened?”

What happened was very simple: The silent majority turned out to be more interested in prosperity and job creation than they were in promises to clamp down on coal mining.

That majority was very silent. Labor was ahead on every single election poll for the past month. It even led in the exit polling. The Australian people did not want to tell the pollsters that they had voted conservative, but they did actually want to vote conservative.

Apart from the stunning Liberal victory, the most surprising thing about the election was how well two smaller parties did. The big parties all lost votes. The Liberals lost 0.6% of their vote from the last election in 2013, while Labor lost 0.9%. The Greens were also down 0.2%.

The only parties that gained a significant number of votes? Two right-wing populist parties, the United Australia Party and the One Nation Party, which together picked up 5.1% of the vote.

The Australian conservative victory wasn’t the only significant election result in Asia over the weekend. India also finished its long election process, and there, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appears to have won a major victory, winning between 280 and 315 seats in Parliament. Modi needs only 272 seats for a majority.

When coupled with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory in April elections in Israel, the electoral results of the past few months have seen surprising victories for conservative parties.

Australia, India, and Israel are remarkably different places. Their definitions of “conservative” also differ. You can’t draw any big lessons from all of these victories—except that parties from the right end of national political spectrums are often more popular than the pollsters recognize.

But certainly, the lesson from Australia for the beleaguered Conservative Party in Britain is clear. Being behind in the polls is not a death sentence.

Conservatives need to avoid fashionable causes, and emphasize the basics—economic competence, fairness for those who try, law and order, national defense, and national sovereignty.

In Britain, support for the Conservative Party has collapsed over the past year, with one influential pollster commenting:

While one can never be certain about what has caused changes in voting intention, it is hard to avoid the obvious conclusion that they are shedding support to more unambiguously pro-Brexit parties like UKIP and the Brexit party. … Across the board, Conservative support seems to be falling away.

Here’s a tip for our British Conservative friends: Conservative parties that do conservative things win elections. Conservative parties that don’t do them, or don’t know what to do, don’t win elections.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has completely failed to do conservative things, and so, 63% of her own supporters say she has been a poor or a terrible prime minister.

May’s time, as that pollster put it, is therefore “essentially up.” Her successor had better learn the lesson from Australia—and learn it fast.

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.

Trump Won’t Kick The Can Down The Road On China’s Cheating

To listen to media pundits, President Trump has created the trade-war crises with China. They say he is economically illiterate. Or he’s a dolt. Or he’s a xenophobe. Or a jingoist. And his impetuous actions are “roiling” markets and making businesses nervous and could tank the economy.

It’s all Trump’s fault. This is not just wrong, it is 180 degrees wrong and demonstrably so. In fact, Trump is the only American leader actually trying to right a substantial wrong.

The truth is that the China problem has been ignored or avoided by multiple presidents and Congresses from both parties, and certainly from the media and D.C. establishment, as far back as the late 1980s, but overtly since China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization. And it has always been a rightable wrong by United States leaders with some backbone and intestinal fortitude. So it has not happened.

Here’s what China has been doing.

The United States and many allies thought when China joined the WTO in 2001, the country would open its economy for more full trade. Until then, it had been utterly closed off to foreign companies even while it market-ized its formerly socialist economy. That’s actually part of the deal of being in the WTO — member nations are supposed to abide by free market trading principles to some extent. There was also the thinking that perhaps the Chinese Communist Party would allow more political and religious freedom as the country became more enlightened through trade relationships with the world’s industrialized democracies.

That, it turns out, was a bit of a pipe dream.

China has merely used its WTO membership to flood its trading “partners” with state-subsidized exports while throwing up numerous walls to continue blocking access to the country’s burgeoning middle class — including tariffs. They obviously continue their protectionist, controlling ways. And they continue to crush dissent and religious freedoms, including Chinese Christians.

“China has effectively used the multilateral trading system to its own advantage, enjoying the benefits of those rules of engagement while not always following those rules in spirit,” Eswar Prasad, a Cornell University economist and former head of the China division at the International Monetary Fund, told the Associated Press.

Or following the rules at all. But the comment shows how even the milquetoast IMF acknowledges China’s bad behavior, even if it soft-pedals it.

Because the reality is that it is much worse. From blackmailing U.S. companies and other foreign companies to gain entrance to the Chinese market, to secretly embedding spyware on the hardware they export, to stealing patents and creating cheap knock-offs, to product-dumping for market control to outright espionage and more.

This has meant the loss of likely hundreds of thousands and possibly millions of American jobs and wages over decades. That is a straightforward theft of prosperity. The same, though less, for Europeans who China also treats this way — although the Europeans are not quite the free-trade purists the U.S. attempts to be

Everyone knew. China is one of the worst trade actors on the world stage, not to mention a growing military threat beyond just their region. But no American leaders made the effort to do anything other than kick the can down the road — just as they did with North Korea’s nuclear and missile program and with our European allies in NATO paying their fair share for defense.

Economically, the result is a badly lopsided trading relationship: The U.S. trade deficit with China last year hit a record $379 billion. And their economic growth in part at our expense is funding a huge military buildup that does not rely on the traditional numbers superiority of the Chinese but on high-tech weaponry, including in space.

The trade deficit itself is not the end of the world, although it does transfer wealth, it does so in return for goods. I have a trade deficit so to speak with Walmart, Publix grocery store and Race Trac, to name a few. But that is because I don’t create goods or services I am trying to sell to them. U.S. companies want to sell to the Chinese people, but the government doesn’t allow it or cheats on it, and that is what is creating a lot of the trade deficit. The trade balance doesn’t have to be even. The trading market does.

Donald Trump the man has been harping on this problem for years, even decades. He was a lone voice because no one else wanted to poke the dragon. It was his initial issue when entering the presidential race. When he spoke to Florida Republicans about a week before coming down the elevator at Trump Tower to announce his bid, China was the focal point. It was not until he gauged the American people’s frustration at illegal immigration and the open southern border that he shifted focus, while still including China.

So this is the actual background for Trump beginning last year with tariffing some Chinese goods to get them to the table. They responded and talks went on for months, supposedly making progress and getting closer. Then the Chinese did what they always do, the week before the final negotiations and expected deal were to be announced, they reneged on every major commitment they had made. This worked with the likes of Barack Obama and other American leaders, who just backed down and got some gosh-awful deal that they misled the public about.

Not with President Trump, though. Trump tweeted two days later he was slapping tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods, which went into effect last Friday. Again, the media spun wildly at Trump’s actions, because of course they assume the worse and did not know or care about China reneging. Further, Trump spelled out plans for tariffs on another $300 billion. In response to tariffs on $500 billion of Chinese imports, China responded with tariffs on $60 billion.

And this belies the reality that we always had the vast upper hand if we would just wield it. The Chinese will have to come back to the table and they will have to give the U.S. a lot of what we want. Because the reality is that while both sides get damaged in a trade war, the Chinese are far more damaged than the U.S. To be blunt, they need us more than we need them.

“The United States has legitimate grounds to be upset with the Chinese,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. “This has been building for almost 20 years.”

Exactly. And nobody would do anything about it until now.

Heritage Foundation Blueprint Would Balance Budget While Cutting Taxes, Stressing Defense

Balancing the budget while reducing taxes and prioritizing national defense are the main goals in a blueprint for smarter government spending released Monday by The Heritage Foundation.

The think tank’s new “Blueprint for Balance” “lays out an agenda both for our long-term governing vision [and] what our conservative policy priorities [are] that we want lawmakers to champion,” Romina Boccia, director of Heritage’s Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget, said during a roundtable with reporters to introduce the plan.

“Overall,” Boccia said, the blueprint specifies “what Republicans especially should be pushing for in the spending bills in order to realize conservative policy priorities and reduce spending in accordance with our values.”

The Budget Control Act, passed in 2011, sought to curb government spending and control the growth of government programs, capping discretionary spending at $1.07 trillion for fiscal year 2018.

Justin Bogie, a senior policy analyst in fiscal affairs at Heritage, wrote in a recent commentary that congressional Democrats are looking to raise the Budget Control Act’s caps on discretionary spending by at least $357 billion over 2020 and 2021.

Heritage’s “Blueprint for Balance,” if implemented, would reduce spending by $10.8 trillion over 10 years and eliminate budget deficits by 2029, as well as permanently extend the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and reduce taxes by $800 billion.

During a second event in which Heritage presented its blueprint to congressional staff, Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., drew comparisons between the document and a budget released May 1 by the Republican Study Committee.

“We get a large task force and members with unique perspectives in a room and hash out differences and avoid some of the land mines that might cause some members not to vote for it,” Banks said of arriving at the Republican Study Committee budget.

“And that’s why I think our budget proposal this year is as strong as ever and very important for all of you to pay attention to because it has that broad support and it still balances [in] six years.”

However, neither the RSC budget nor the Heritage proposal has much of a hope of making it onto the House floor for a vote, given the Democrat majority led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

“While we wanted to avoid our budget proposal being aspirational per se, we aren’t naive enough to [think] that Nancy Pelosi [is] going to put the RSC budget on the floor,” Banks said.

Government funding runs out Sept. 30, the end of fiscal 2019.

The Hill reported earlier this month that lawmakers suggested another government shutdown could occur if Democrats and Republicans can’t agree on funding, including a $19 billion disaster aid bill passed May 10 by House Democrats that is opposed by the Trump administration.

The Heritage plan, which would balance the budget within 10 years, would expand the Republican tax reform plan signed into law by President Donald Trump on Dec. 22, 2017.

Specifically, it would end 29 tax subsidies and make permanent both the individual tax cuts and the ability of businesses to fully expense investments in equipment.

“This is something that wasn’t included in the president’s budget but is a really important piece of extending the entire Tax Cuts and Jobs Act going forward,” Adam Michel, senior policy analyst at Heritage’s Hermann Center for the Federal Budget, said during the roundtable.

“And if we can pay down our debt and start balancing the budget, there are real economic dividends beyond all of the other benefits of getting the government out of our lives in various different ways,” Michel said.

Bogie said similarities between the RSC and Heritage budgets include permanently extending the 2017 tax cuts; providing another $850 billion in tax relief; prioritizing defense spending; and significantly reducing nondefense discretionary programs that fall outside the government’s constitutional responsibilities.

“Both budgets undertake comprehensive entitlement reform,” Bogie said in an email to The Daily Signal. “One of the most important aspects is that both budgets balance in 10 years and significantly reduce debt as a share of GDP.”

Australia: Tough on jihad Scott Morrison wins big in re-election, “shocks” media and pollsters

Yesterday, The Washington Post tried to set the stage in prepping for elections, using the same tired old tactics of attacking “populists“, levying accusations about the rise in tide of populists who are supposedly shifting ‘reasonable’, right-of-center folk to the so-called ‘far right’, and blaming the latter for “cultural conflict” (instead of blaming jihadists and their Leftist enablers for eroding democracy bit by bit). Then there was the inescapable Leftist compulsion to malign Trump as WaPo did….

Americans tend to think that our politics are unique and that President Trump has caused all our political disruption. That’s not true. The same patterns of populism, cultural conflict and the movement of well-off and educated center-right voters away from their traditional party are happening around the globe. Australia, which holds its national elections …is a case in point.

The article went on explaining that…”Nearly 30 percent of all Australians are foreign-born, and the number rises each year, and that “this has led to the rise of a new populist party, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. Hanson is a longtime anti-immigrant crusader who first rose to political influence in the mid-1990s. The recent influx of immigrants, combined with the increase in immigrants from Muslim countries, has given her a second moment in the sun.” WaPo also referenced Morrison as emerging as a compromise candidate, signifying its attempts to malign populism and dismiss Morrison as a possibility. Polls did indicate that he would lose, much like the Trump predictions right up to the ballot box.

The newly re-elected Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was humble in stating that “he had ‘always believed in miracles’ as partial results showed the Liberal-National Coalition close to a majority,” while mainstream media called the election results, “shocking”, perhaps in part because it is difficult to easily brand Morrison since he is seen as “center-right“.

For the out of touch mainstream media, there sure seems to be shock-waves, but there really shouldn’t be. There is a shift going on and although immigration issues are front and center, Leftist crass politicking and public manipulations have blurred lines of reasoning and thus, the sensible analysis of all possible outcomes.  It should be clear to anyone that citizens who have some clue about the state of domestic and world affairs (thanks to Islamization) should be at least interested in electing a leader who they can trust, one who represents their values, future well-being and confronts issues of pertinence like: securing borders (akin to putting locks on doors) against manifest dangers. They should also be concerned about a barbaric doctrine that has been seeping into Western borders and their homeland security as a result of it. They should be bothered about their children and grandchildren’s future in the event of rapid ‘Islamization’.  For ample clues about what that looks like, just observe the chaos in Sweden, Germany, France, and the UK etc. and while at it, observing the state of human rights in Islamic regimes might also be of use.

Australians have shown themselves to be more aware and reasonable than they are given credit for. Australians were studied in a recent poll, aimed to find out about their attitudes toward immigration.  Findings revealed that they were positive toward immigration, but are negative towards Islam. Why might that be? They are likely quite aware about the incompatibilities between Sharia tenets and Western constitutions, while at the same time, they are positive about “good” immigrants.

In an imagined scenario only for illustration: if Muslims will leave their political Islam at the door when they arrive in Western countries, they will be seen no differently than other faiths. Other faiths have not been the regular subject of news headlines and for good reason: they assimilate. Unfortunately, a troubling number of Muslims are not willing to park their sharia doctrines at the door.  Some Muslims practice their faith in peace and reject the parts about a Muslim’s jihadi duty to conquer infidels (via stealth taqiyya or violent jihad), deeming them to be antiquated. But far too many Islamic supremacist lobbies -acting as the voice and defenders of Islamic adherents–continue to bombard Westerners with demands for special privileges, and is in everybody’s face about “islamophobia”, just as Muslims abuse innocents wanton.   They also relentlessly attack free speech,  which is the cornerstone of democracy, and are well versed at manipulating democratic rights against Western countries, and at using anti-racism drives as a tool to benefit them.  They befriend far leftists who aid them with their victimology subterfuge, and cast aspersions on truth-tellers who highlight and warn about their global supremacist abuses and connections to foreign terrorist entities.

Scott Morrison has been refreshingly forthright in confronting the jihad problem in Australia, even though he is generally deemed by media to be “center-right“. He has been a reliable leader in protecting his citizens and democratic rule of law.  In so-doing, he has endured fierce condemnations.

Following a jihad attack by Hassan Khalif Shire Alithat, which left one man dead and two others injured last November, Morrison drew outrage from The Australian National Imams Council because of comments he made that linked Islam to a radical and dangerous ideology.” Morrison was in fact, rather gentle in delivering obvious statements. He stated that…

while he supported religious freedom, religious extremism must be called out.
“Radical, violent, extremist Islam that opposes our very way of life,” he said in a speech….Religious extremism takes many forms around the world and no religion is immune from it….But here in Australia, we would be kidding ourselves if we did not call out the fact that the greatest threat of religious extremism in this country is the radical and dangerous ideology of extremists.”

Morrison also faced attack for mulling a plan to strip jihadists of citizenship, and have them expelled from Australia–something every democratic country should be doing. Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Migration Jason Wood reasoned at the time…

As far as I’m concerned, if you’ve put your hand up to say you uphold the rights and responsibility of Australian citizenship, but the next minute you want to talk jihad all day, it’s a breach of contract and you need to go.

Wood’s words were met with expected rage by the Muslim community which also lied that Morrison had suggested that all Muslims were culpable.

Morrison has also dismissed mental illness as an “excuse” for the “dangerous ideology of extremist Islam”.

And only two months ago, Morrison announced that he was considering breaking ties with Turkey over its leader Erdogan’s threats tied to the New Zealand massacre. Erdogan reportedly stated that “if Australians with anti-Islam views come to Turkey, we will send them back in caskets”.

The New York Times has summed up his win…

his coalition’s performance amounted to another swell in the wave of populist fervor that swept President Trump into office and set Britain on a path out of the European Union.

Morrison’s win has now led to the announcement that “his Labor opponent, Bill Shorten, will resign his party leadership.” Congrats to Morrison who has evidently advanced from center-right branding to populist.

As an aside, let’s hope that Australia switches back on Jihad Watch. Right before the election, major internet providers in Australia reportedly made Jihad Watch inaccessible (totalitarian style), along with other sites that warn about the global jihad and globalist mischief.

“2019 Australia election: Morrison celebrates ‘miracle’ win”, BBC, May 18, 2019:

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has thanked voters for re-electing his centre-right Coalition in a shock result at the federal polls.

He told supporters he had “always believed in miracles” as partial results showed the Liberal-National Coalition close to a majority.

Opposition Labor Party leader Bill Shorten has announced he is resigning after accepting defeat.

Exit polls had suggested a narrow Labor win for the first time in six years.

The final result of the election may not be known for some hours, but with more than 70% of votes counted the Coalition has won, or is ahead in, 74 seats in its quest for a 76-seat majority, with Labor on just 66 seats.

The result nobody predicted

By Hywel Griffith, BBC Sydney correspondent

Try finding someone who says they saw this result coming.

For well over two years, the coalition has trailed behind Labor in the opinion polls, and the assumption had been it would be Labor’s turn to govern.

But somehow Scott Morrison managed to turn things around at the 11th hour – and he did it largely on his own…..

America’s Second Revolution — Trump and the Morality of Mankind

As George Washington was divinely inspired and protected to form this great nation, it is my belief that Donald Trump is divinely inspired and protected to resurrect America. Welcome to our miracle.

“We must not surrender to the false song of globalism”

I am asking you to believe in yourself again and I am asking you to believe in America. And if we do that then all together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America safe again, and we will make America great again. God bless you!” – President Donald J. Trump


Global Deep State De-Class Has Begun

The global deep state de-class and take down is officially underway. What an absolutely incredible time to be alive at this precise moment in history. For more than two decades, I and others have been chastised and labeled conspiracy theorists when expressing what was evident to the intuitive and wise critical thinker, that being, that a “One World Government” objective, “Globalism”,  towards a tyrannical Godless police state, was real and wreaking havoc upon our existence and quest for peace, prosperity, good health and happiness. This is what the New World Order, the global ruling elite and their structured control centers were marching us all towards. That is until now, until TRUMP! They succeeded in dividing us. They will not succeed in conquering us. It’s time to unite.

No, I’m afraid, this is not a conspiracy theorist fantasy my fellow Americans and citizens of this trouble world, but rather a conspiracy fact and reality that the world is now waking up to. And to the friends, associates and family members who have distanced themselves from me, to say the least, I welcome you back with open arms and forgiveness. I did not fight to be right, I was right. I am right. What side of history will you be on? I express no apologies, but accept them for (“in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”), Orwell, 1984. Welcome to America’s Second Revolution, Trump and the morality of mankind.

America’s Second Revolution Trump and the Morality of Mankind

With the recent upset of the century, the global deep state and shadow government of this world has experienced its first real setback with the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States. The globalists now tremble as Trump and this movement threaten their totalitarianism world government. Although optimism has returned, the battle now begins as President Donald J. Trump leads America’s second revolution.

Oxford defines morality as the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior, a particular system of values and principles of conduct. The extent to which an action is right or wrong.

When you think about it, this is a powerful fundamental of which no one escapes. Psychopaths and Sociopaths playing God. Killing new born babies. Late term abortions. Pedophilia and child sex trafficking. Endless baseless useless wars. Digital debt based manipulated currency. Poisoned air, water and food. False Flags Ops. against innocent unsuspecting citizens of this world. “We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and banks destroy the economy.” – Chris Hedges.

Go ahead and just look at what you see before you. Operate with honesty and integrity and refocus your moral compass. In short, with this great awakening within the human spirit, we will see significant turmoil and extraordinary dangers as evil is exposed and truth is revealed. This is what the global de-class reveals. The left wing lunatics and the heavily drugged, (this includes on-going drug laced customers that Big Pharma has created), and the severely brainwashed ignorant, I am afraid most of you will not come to see the light. You will have to deal with this later. It won’t be pleasant. But as for the rest of us, many are waking up. More will wake up. We must help them to see. We welcome you to reality, to the truth, the disruptive uncomfortable truths that you are now beginning to see.

What’s Your Story?

We all have our story. Here’s mine. What’s yours? Share it with me and with others. Share this post with others.

I began questioning things as a child. I began researching and discovering uncomfortable truths over two decades ago. I then embarked upon sharing these disruptive uncomfortable truths with those in my life. First in conversation, then via songwriting back in the mid-late 1990’s. In 2009, I began speaking before groups and have since covered eight states and three countries. I also launched the Save America Foundation a 501(c)(4) and held large scale conventions in two states. I expressed my voice and views as a radio talk show host, the show was titled, “Freedom It’s Up To Us”. Then in 2013 while living in Asia, I co-authored my first book, “Surviving Global Governance”. From 2013 to present, I have written a total of eight books. My new book will be published in March of 2020 with pre-order discounts and perks to be announced. In 2015, I launched my word press blog website and have since authored over 400 articles. Today, I write books and articles. I speak before politically active groups supportive of President Trump. I am the Chairman and leader of the group Sarasota Patriots for Trump and I am a news commentator being interviewed on radio, TV and internet based platforms. I am but one voice for our times.

Great Awakening

There are no accidents. There are no coincidences. What we do right here, right now, will determine how we live out the rest of our lives and beyond. The human race and the universe itself are becoming more and more conscious of itself. This is a good thing as we are a culture and civilization in serious decline, a planet in peril. A full course correction was needed which has now begun and soon the masses will see this. In this, there is hope. You can’t change people. They change themselves by their own decisions. You can influence them and guide them. Do this. The door is opening. Soon they will see. This has already begun all across the globe. Follow Q.

I’ve been so moved by what I’ve seen and heard along the way in life. So much so it has inspired me, and I feel as if I must respond to the questions asked or not yet asked by those more intimately in my life, those I have met in life, and now to you – the reader – and to anyone who will take the time and challenge that presents itself to look at life in a new way. The blissfully ignorant go along as though it were business as usual. It is not business as usual, I can assure you of this. I can assure you of this.

It is my hope and desire that our collective voice will inspire others to make the necessary changes resulting in a better life and a better world. That it may help us through what will prove to be some very dark and challenging days ahead. In the end, I am a long-term optimist but a short-term realist, and in the long run, I believe we will restore dignity, love, and peace to the human race. Changing the morality of mankind. I am a short-term realist and thus these efforts are put forth in my work.

I believe we are living in extraordinary and challenging times. My mission is to awaken, inspire, and to motivate people. However, only individuals themselves can become awakened, inspired, and motivated while other people can be the conduit or trigger point. I am not telling anyone how to think, for who am I, or anyone for that matter, to do such a thing? I am merely asking you to look, observe, do some due diligence, and question what you see before you and to think for yourself. Fair enough?

We must stop and take a look around us to re-asses ourselves, others, life, living, and the systems and structures that make this world go round. If you are tired of spinning around in the hamster wheel called your life, then it’s time to look at who is spinning that wheel and what you can do to stop this circular insanity. A raised understanding is needed as to the realization that a major paradigm shift is under way and that we have been living in a web of deceitful lies designed to entrap us and move us away from the spirit and more towards vanity and worldly possessions as we march blindly like useless idiots down the road to serfdom. The opposite of love is not hate, it is fear. So, choose love. As you obtain more and more truths, then take the correct steps in implementing change, the fear subsides.

Many of us have become a part of what I call the robotic hypnotic flock. Ignorant followers, so to speak. Now, being a follower is a good thing as most of us are not leaders, yet we rely on leadership. When being a follower, be a wise and discerning one and not an ignorant one. Be aware of who or what ideology you are following and ask yourself if this is pro-survival with the greatest benefit to the many without hurting the one. Then proceed. We now have the leadership, the brave and brilliant leadership of President Donald J. Trump. Don’t squander this miraculous opportunity because it may seem unpopular. We are indeed living in the age of an increasing number of smarter phones and an increasing number of dumbed-down people. Isaac Asimov once said, “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” By and large, his quote is so true today.

Optimist – Realist – Pessimist

Ultimately, I am a long-term optimist but a short-term realist. I believe that love conquers all and the light will shine, expose the evil, and overcome the darkness. However, I also feel we are living in a time where being a flippant, eternal optimist or the doom and gloom pessimist is not the most effective position to take. And there is not time for ignorance. Not now. WTF up! In fact, I believe that being a flippant optimist in the face of the harsh realities of the day can get you, and perhaps others around you, killed. In times like these there is nothing smart nor cool about being a short- term optimist; don’t buy it. Neither is denial or burying our heads in the sand. We might consider starting out by being a realist. Observe the obvious, trust but verify, practice critical thinking, question authority, question everything, and think for yourself. But observe the obvious. Surround yourself with people of like-mind who do indeed truly understand the times in which we live and expand those circles of relationships.

Being a realist can be challenging as one must first be able to recognize truth from something other than truth and this can be difficult as we are living in a bubble, a falsely created reality, a contrived and controlled world, strewn with lie after lie, concealed truths, half-truths and biased vested interest for selfish gain and to assert control over the free-will of others. I mean, after all, they take our space and make it small, they stamp out free-will, and keep us tied and bound. They direct our attention and control our minds for their evil deeds. Well, a new day has come and so this shall perish from the earth. You are not alone. We are never alone.

Conclusion

The challenges we all face are enormous but the scales are tipping. This is our time; we have a chance. The time for action is now. You are nothing more than an accomplice should you stand by idly as the culture and planet declines rapidly into a very, very unpleasant condition. This is now changing. The proverbial pendulum has indeed shifted with Team Trump. Get with the program. It is my hope that we begin to come to realize these misconceptions and begin the much needed course corrections, both personally and collectively. Peace and love shines bright in the light. Let’s brighten this light all around the world while there is still a chance to do so. Won’t you join us?

There are three things that cannot long be hidden, the sun, the moon and the truth. So when your children and grand children as you – “What were you doing when the global governance was being thrust down the collective throat of America and the world”, what will your answer be? Freedom, it’s up to us! Get with the program. WWG1WGA

Polls: Trump Popularity Soars to Highest Level, Trust In Media Tanks To Lowest

The events in the above headline are not unrelated.

Once the literally “no news” two-year news cycle of Trump-Russia collusion ended with the thump of the Mueller report finding no collusion and not recommending any obstruction of justice charges, it turns out Americans are OK with President Trump. More than OK.

The Zogby Poll has Trump’s job approval at 51%, 3 points above Obama’s in the same poll at the same point in his first term.

Again, it cannot be said enough, this is after two years of media hyperventilating over something that did not happen.

Maybe more interesting: A majority of Millennials approve of Trump’s performance as President, which has been a huge GOP fear — that Trump would turn off young voters to conservatism for a generation. This may not end that worry, but it sure tamps it down. Further, Trump is winning back Hispanic, Independent, college educated and urban voters.

Rasmussen polls have already placed Trump above Obama at the same time in his term for awhile now.

This is astonishing considering the very friendly, to put it mildly, coverage of President Obama and the nakedly partisan coverage of Trump.

On that point, Trump’s approval ratings are giant leaps ahead of the media’s trust ratings. Maybe not apples to apples, but close. The Columbia Journalism Review, the most prestigious publication for and about the media, reports with surprisingly little verbiage (I think we know why) just how bad the problem is through a commissioned Reuters poll.

Here’s what they found: The media led all institutions for which the public has the lowest confidence. Nobody’s lower. And of all demographic groups, only Democrats expressed a positive confidence in the press. Gosh, I wonder why?

Here are the numbers, which an honest media look at and admit they have a severe bias problem: 42 percent of Democrats believe the media isn’t biased. But only 10 percent of Republicans said the same.

Reagan used to talk about going over the head of the media and talking directly to the American people. Because even then, the media bias was pronounced, albeit nothing like today. Now, it looks like the American people are going over the head of the media directly to reality.

All of this means that the attempt to bring down Trump through what is now demonstrably “fake news” has backfired magnificently. The media as constituted probably cannot recover legitimacy from it’s past 10 years combined of covering for Obama and making it up over Trump. Which is a shame, and shame on them, because the Fourth Estate is an important part of America.

VIDEO: The Vortex — They’re Coming for You

TRANSCRIPT

The Left is coming for you, giving a modern day context to the quote misattributed to Marxist Leon Trotsky, “You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.”

Ah, yes, war is always interested in you — the war the Left has unleashed on Western civilization through the civilization’s institutions.

And what exactly is the Left using the war to get of yours? Very simple: your soul. Only with the understanding of war — war for your soul, meaning spiritual warfare played out in the daily decisions of a society — does any of the current madness make sense.

Men pretending to themselves that they are women, competing in female sports and shattering records; corporations saying they will no longer accept the understanding of a so-called “binary world” where there are just two sexes; social media giants blowing up the accounts of virtually any person willing to challenge the lunacy of the Left — this is all being done to force a new world down everyone’s throats. And don’t think this isn’t coming, indeed, hasn’t already started to come to a neighborhood near you.

Take, for example, the recent defeat of the Religious Freedom Law in Texas. That law would have protected business owners with publicly stated religious opinions from adverse government action.

The proposed law, House Bill 3172, got the nickname the “Chick-fil-A Bill” because when the fast food company wanted to open some more stores in San Antonio city airports, the city council refused to grant the necessary permits because of the business owners strongly held and stated opinions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

The bill was killed not on its merits, but by parliamentary lobbying tactics by the state’s homosexual lobby group. There was a justified uproar about the case once it became wider known and Texas lawmakers said it was the perfect example of why the law was necessary so that governments could not penalize businesses because of their political or moral or religious views.

But that understanding of fairness only seems to apply to the Left — at least as far as the Left is concerned. Could you imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth that would on the Left occur if the shoe was on the other foot?

And for the record, although you probably could already guess, the Texas Catholic Conference, the state’s bishops, had nothing to say on the matter. Yep, the Catholic conference, in what seems like it should have been a “no-brainer” was completely dumb-struck on the issue of religious freedom.

The Left is relentless and shameless. And they will not stop until they have either converted you or eradicated you — and if not you, then your children.

These are not just political policy-type considerations or prudential societal decisions, these are, at their very core, spiritual matters which determine a person’s eternal destiny.

This is why all of this, no matter the arena, no matter the matter, must be fully vetted and placed under a microscope — a spiritual microscope.

In the end, it’s all about spirituality, spiritual truth, meaning whether a soul is saved or damned. Yep, day by day, they are coming for you, and to date, your spiritual fathers have offered little by way of defense, and in frequent cases, they have sold you out, owing to their own perversions or willful neglect.

What Catholics need to come to terms with is that many of the bishops are actually supportive of the Democratic Party’s worldview.

And since that worldview is diametrically opposed to Christ, well, now you see the disaster which has befallen the Church.

We need to all see and understand and tell our loved ones that the Left wants your children, and you, out of the picture. And given the current rate of success of the Left since this plan was rolled out, it would appear around just another five years or so until they have almost completely won.

Will everyday Catholics step up and save civilization?
