Koch Money Funds Open Borders Agenda: Attempts to Sway Supreme Court!

Everyone knows that George Soros funds Leftwing causes and is a proponent of open borders, but even as the Koch brothers (David Koch died this year) have been tagged as the conservative movements money bags, not everyone knows the Kochs have pushed the immigration issue on the same side as Soros and his ilk.

Freedom Partners, my foot! The Left paints the Koch family as the boogeymen on the right. But, make no mistake they are on the same side as George Soros on the most important issue of all time for the survival of America—immigration.

Maybe it happened in your state, but about 8 years ago or so, Americans for Prosperity (Koch creation) came on the scene in Maryland and initially Tea Party groups were thrilled to have a well-funded ally—that is, until it became clear that the subject of immigration (the hottest issue in Maryland at that time) was off the table.

Now comes news that the Koch name is front and center in support of the so-called ‘Dreamers’ as Trump’s effort to dismantle an Obama era executive order that gave amnesty to scores of ‘children’ (not adults) who came to America illegally were given permission to stay and work in America (of course the plan is to eventually give them citizenship and voting rights) goes to the Supreme Court.

Koch’s interest is financial as the subject of labor, and lots of it, is the driving force behind much of the Open Borders movement’s agenda.  Humanitarian lingo is a shield they hide behind!

Here is The Hill:

Koch groups take immigration art exhibit to DC ahead of DACA hearing at Supreme Court

The top nonprofit groups affiliated with conservative mega-donor Charles Koch are unveiling a pop-up art exhibit in Washington, D.C., meant to extol the benefits of immigration.

The “Common Ground” exhibit comes ahead of a Nov. 12 Supreme Court hearing on the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

It features nine doors with life-size video screens that show different aspects of immigrant life in the United States.

The exhibit is being brought to Washington by Stand Together, the main nonprofit arm of the Koch network, in conjunction with Americans for Prosperity and the Libre Institute, also nonprofit groups within the Koch orbit.

The exhibit will open Tuesday in Washington’s renovated Wharf area, after showings at Nashville’s Politicon and Miami’s Wynwood Art District.

It shows nine aspects of immigrant life, starting with a door titled “Meet Dreamers,” in allusion to DACA recipients, commonly known as “Dreamers.”

Dreamers are on the forefront of the immigration debate as the Supreme Court gears up for the Nov. 12 hearing, where it will decide on the legality of President Trump’s 2017 order to revoke the Obama-era program.

Under DACA, undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as minors, registered, paid a fee and passed a background check were given a reprieve from deportation and permission to work in the country. Those permits are renewable every two years.

The program was meant as a bridge while Congress legislated a permanent solution for Dreamers.

Trump in September 2017 canceled the program, arguing President Obama had overreached and single-handedly legislated on immigration by granting work permits in addition to deferred action on deportation.

And, for you, the worker whose salaries are kept low by a steady supply of cheap immigrant labor, or you whose community is destroyed by diversity, or you, taxpayers, who pay for welfare benefits and health care for Koch/Soros workers and non-workers, there are no money bags supporting your side of the argument.

There is only the President.

Staying in Paris Agreement Would Have Cost Families $20K

Editor’s note: The U.S. just took a new, major step to leaving the Paris Agreement, a climate change deal between several countries. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, “Today the United States began the process to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Per the terms of the Agreement, the United States submitted formal notification of its withdrawal to the United Nations. The withdrawal will take effect one year from delivery of the notification.”

Pompeo added in his statement, made late Monday:

As noted in his June 1, 2017 remarks, President [Donald] Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the agreement. The United States has reduced all types of emissions, even as we grow our economy and ensure our citizens’ access to affordable energy.  Our results speak for themselves:  U.S. emissions of criteria air pollutants that impact human health and the environment declined by 74% between 1970 and 2018. U.S. net greenhouse gas emissions dropped 13% from 2005-2017, even as our economy grew over 19 percent.

Here’s a version of a previously published article from Heritage Foundation researcher Nick Loris on why the Paris Agreement wouldn’t significantly affect the climate—but would cost America jobs and would hurt some families’ incomes.


The demand for socialism is on the rise from young Americans today. But is socialism even morally sound? Find out more now >>


President Donald Trump is right to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. While the climate is indeed changing and human activity is playing a role, the chances of looming climate catastrophe are simply unrealistic and not grounded in reality.

But even granting such a looming catastrophe, the Paris Agreement itself would do little to alter the climate. To have any impact whatsoever on climate, the entire world would either have to quickly change the way it consumes energy or simply remain undeveloped. Both options are devoid of reality.

While many countries are rapidly expanding their use of renewable power, forecasts indicate that coal, oil, and natural gas will continue to provide the overwhelming majority of the world’s energy needs well into the future. For developing countries, the highest priorities are to reduce energy poverty and improve living standards.

Those who are clamoring for action on climate change are the ones who should actually be most upset with what a sham the Paris Agreement is. It’s been celebrated as a breakthrough achievement of the world’s developed and developing countries coming together, but it is anything but that.

With no enforcement mechanisms in place and no repercussions for failing to meet emissions reduction targets, countries are essentially free to do whatever they want, meaning they will continue on their business-as-usual trajectory without making any changes. China, for instance, can peak its emissions in 2030 even though projections have its peak emissions falling before that year.

India, for its part, has pledged to reduce its emissions levels, or cut its ratio of carbon emissions to gross domestic product. That ratio may well go down so long as carbon emissions rise at a slower rate than GDP, but carbon emissions will keep rising all the same.

Actually, India committed to emissions reductions that are less than what the country would achieve if it continues on the same track it is currently on today. In other words, it set the bar so low that it can continue along its businesses-as-usual trajectory of emissions intensity and come out looking like a climate hero.

As the Manhattan Institute’s Oren Cass wrote, “It’s easy to slim down to 180 pounds, if you weigh 175 to begin with.”

Pakistan was more honest than most about its emissions prospects, stating bluntly, “Given the future economic growth and associated growth in the energy sector, the peaking of emissions in Pakistan is expected to take place much beyond the year 2030. An exponential increase of [greenhouse gas] emissions for many decades is likely to occur before any decrease in emissions can be expected.”

Global compliance with the Paris Agreement has been nothing short of abysmal. In fact, most nations will soon fail to meet the deadlines they agreed to.

The original hope that each nation’s contribution might somehow push other countries to “do more” is not playing out. This deal was a hodgepodge of arbitrarily defined commitments with no enforcement mechanism. It was doomed from the start.

Following through with the Obama administration’s commitments would impose clear economic harm on the U.S. by driving energy prices higher—and that’s just a small part of the overall cost. Americans would pay more for food, health care, education, clothes, and every other good and service that requires energy.

These higher costs would be spread across the entire economy and would shrink overall economic growth and employment. Heritage Foundation analysts estimated that the regulations required to meet the Obama administration’s commitments would impose the following costs by 2035:

  • An overall loss of nearly 400,000 jobs, half of which would be in manufacturing.
  • A average total income loss of more than $20,000 for a family of four.
  • An aggregate GDP loss of over $2.5 trillion.

Other countries would continue getting a free pass under the agreement, but if the U.S. signed back on, one can be sure that environmental activist lawsuits would make sure the U.S. kept its obligations.

To make matters worse, the climate regulations encompassing the U.S. target may not even achieve the desired results and would require additional regulations. And that would just be the beginning. The Paris Agreement requires ever-increasing targets as time goes on, which would further increase the cost of compliance. These efforts would return us to the same costly and ineffective policies that the current administration is unwinding.

Congress should instead advance pragmatic policies that will actually drive innovation in energy and environmental protection.

This is us! A person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than someone under 35.

This commentary was received from a longtime international friend of ours. A thoughtful commentary indeed:

The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday. They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and have grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science, which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and outdated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag.

We know the words to the “Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America .

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.” You youngsters have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’ Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it; no jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty, and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2016 we took back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like, but we get where we’re going, and in 2020 we’re going to the polls again by the millions.

So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the “Gray-Haired Brigade.”

Footnote: This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on. I will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county.

Can you feel the ground shaking??? It’s not an earthquake, it is a:

STAMPEDE!!!!

In God we STILL trust!

VIDEO: Leaked ABC News Insider Recording EXPOSES #EpsteinCoverup “We had Clinton, We had Everything”

Project Veritas posted the above video and following commentary on the #EpsteinCoverup.

New York, NY: Today’s new video reveals how an ABC Good Morning America Breaking News Anchor, and 20/20 Co-Anchor had significant information regarding Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes years ago but was told by her superiors that the network would not run the story.

Some of the key findings of today’s video:

• “I’ve Had This Story for Three Years… (ABC) Would Not Put It on The Air” says Good Morning America Breaking News Anchor, and 20/20 Co-Anchor Amy Robach. “It Was Unbelievable… We Had – Clinton, We Had Everything…” • Robach: “We Had Her Whole Allegations About Prince Andrew…I Got a Little Concerned About Why I Couldn’t Get On.”

• Amy Robach Describes How She Interviewed a Woman Who Had the Courage to Come Forward “Years” Ago About Epstein: “She Had Pictures, She Had Everything. She Was in Hiding for Twelve Years. We Convinced Her to Come Out. We Convinced Her to Talk to Us.”

• Robach Details ABC’s Initial Response to Her: “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No One Knows Who That is. This is a Stupid Story

• Robach: “Now it’s All Coming Out … I Freaking Had All Of It…” (New York, NY) Newly revealed footage leaked by an ABC insider has exposed how network executives rejected allegations against Jeffrey Epstein years ago, even though there was content regarding the merit of those claims in-hand.

Amy Robach, ‘Good Morning America’ Co-Host and Breaking News Anchor at ABC, explains how a witness came forward years ago with information pertaining to Epstein, but Disney-owned ABC News refused to air the material for years. Robach vents her anger in a “hot mic” moment with an off-camera producer, explaining that ABC quashed the story in it’s early stages. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (Now Virginia Guiffre) [alleged Epstein victim].

We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.”

She continues, “The Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.” Robach goes on to express she believes that Epstein was killed in prison saying, “So do I think he was killed? 100% Yes, I do…He made his whole living blackmailing people… Yup, there were a lot of men in those planes. A lot of men who visited that Island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.”

Robach repeats a prophetic statement purportedly made by Attorney Brad Edwards “…[T]here will come a day when we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known,” and Disgustedly Robach states “I had it all three years ago.” Project Veritas intends to continue its investigation into corruption in the Mainstream Media.

We encourage that Brave insiders at these organizations come forward with any information they have, so that the public knows what is really going on within these media companies.

Calling All Rosa Parks Americans

The insanity going on before our very eyes regarding Democrats’ and fake news medias’ latest campaign to impeach Trump over nonsense is infuriating millions of Americans. It is the equivalent of Adam Schiff flooding the airwaves with the lie that Trump stole his car and must be impeached for it. Meanwhile, Schiff’s car is parked untouched in his driveway for all the world to see. Ignoring the truth that Schiff’s car was not stolen, Democrats and fake news media cart out a dozen witnesses (whistle-blowers) who claim they saw Trump commit the crime.

This is exactly what is going on with Schiff’s outrageous claim that Trump committed impeachable crimes during his phone call with the Ukraine president. Schiff publicly read a bogus version of the conversation between Trump and the president of Ukraine. Trump brilliantly countered Schiff’s lie by releasing the actual transcript of their phone call. Ignoring the actual transcript, Democrats and their fake news media cheering section are still promoting the false narrative 24/7 that Trump must be impeached for what Schiff claims Trump said on the phone call. This is in-our-face arrogant corruption.

Behaviorally, Schiff, Democrats and fake news media are saying we’re kickin’ your president out of office and there ain’t nothing you smelly Walmart-shopping Trump voters can do about it.

I received an expletive-filled ranting phone call from a businessman friend in California. He was livid watching Pelosi, Schiff and their fake news media minions on TV arrogantly promoting a false picture of Trump while seeming to get away with it. He kept screaming, where are the ******* Republicans on our side who are fighting back? I talked him down from throwing a brick through his TV. My friend’s frustration and anger is felt by millions; outraged that Democrats and fake news media are attempting to use nonsense to disenfranchise them, reversing their decision to elect Trump.

The Democrat Party, fake news media, ANTIFA, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Black Lives Matter, and LGBTQ enforcers are nothing more than anti-American and anti-Christian hate groups. They have launched a no-holds-barred war on traditional Americans. They have zero tolerance for any opposition to them transforming America. Along with social and financial destruction, opposing them could cost you your life.

Black civil rights hero Rosa Parks was an excellent example of courage. Tired after a long day at work, Rosa took a seat in the front of the public transit bus, ignoring the mandate that blacks must sit in the back. When ordered to give up her seat to a white passenger, Rosa said, no. Folks, we need thousands of Rosa Parks Americans who refuse to be bullied by the anti-American mob.

I salute Jaelene Hinkle, an outspoken Christian on the US national soccer team. Jaelene is a perfect example of the courage we need to see displayed across America. When ordered to wear a “rainbow” jersey honoring homosexual pride, Jaelene said, no. Wisely, Jaelene said, “If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection.”

Courageous outraged parents across America are protesting drag queens reading homosexual indoctrination stories to their kids in public libraries. So what does Kaiser Permanente do? They featured a drag queen reading to children in their commercial. Why would Kaiser do that considering that you could fit all the drag queens in America in a phone booth? Clearly, this is another major corporation saying, screw you, mainstream Americans. In essence, Kaiser is saying, we’re cramming the normalization of debauchery down your throats whether you like it or not.

For years, I warned of LGBTQ enforcers’ hidden scheme to force us to celebrate their anti-biblical lifestyle, while portraying themselves as victims who only desire tolerance. People laughed and called me paranoid. Today, if Democrats win the presidency, HR 5, the deceptively named “Equality Act”, will become law. It mandates that every American kneel in worship to LGBTQ perversion. Christians are already being thrown into jail and run out-of-business for saying no to LGBTQ enforcers demanding that they betray Jesus.

LGBTQ enforcers ignore dozens of bakeries who would gladly make a cake for their same sex wedding. They bang on the door of the Christian baker and demand that he bake the cake for their homosexual wedding or suffer dire consequences. Obviously, this is not about acquiring a cake. It is about punishing and forcing Christians to surrender to their LGBTQ false god. Because of its condemnation of homosexuality, legislation is underway to ban the Bible by declaring it hate speech.

Nervous Nancy Pelosi knows she cannot successfully impeach Trump. She would need the votes of 67 senators and that ain’t happenin’. So her game plan is to use her fake news media minions to deceive the American people. They will promote the lie 24/7 that Trump has been or should be impeached. Pelosi hopes to kill Trump’s presidency via death by a thousand cuts.

Mary Kay Ash of Mary Kay Cosmetics said, “The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang.” In other words, leadership flows from the top down. Trump is a leader like no politician before him. His courage should inspire all of us who love our country to courageously stand up for principles and values which have made her great. Just say no to anti-Christian and anti-American traitor’s bullying demands. Spread the good news about what Trump has done and is doing to keep America great.

My enraged California friend passionately said, “We must save our president!” I am doing my part by writing articles, campaigning for Republican candidates, and touring singing my new Trump Train 2020 song. I guarantee my song will pump you up!

Even More Political Correctness

For some time we have witnessed how political correctness has affected our speech, manners, even our senses of humor and history. We are asked to forget everything taught to us as it was undeniably wrong, at least according to the far left. Normally, such antics would be dismissed as silly, but then again, there is a subliminal agenda underway here. Two recent examples remind us of how strange it is becoming.

For many years, the expression “okay” was considered a quick way to verify something was satisfactory and ready to go. The question, “Are you okay?” would normally be answered with a thumbs-up gesture or the “OK” symbol expressed by holding up your hand and having the tip of the index finger touch the tip of the thumb. The people at NASA used it for years during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, not to mention the Space Shuttle and other programs. The expression became so popular, just about everyone used it in all walks of life.

This all changed recently as “OK” is now considered an expression of racism, and as iconic as the one finger salute. Today, the Left contends the hand gesture is a symbol of “White Power” as the three fingers are alleged to represent a “W” (for White), and the thumb/index finger connection represents a “P” (for Power); “White Power.” I don’t know who exactly dreamed this one up, but it is a real stretch of the imagination to do so.

We may laugh at the use of this symbol as a mark of white supremacy, but an actor at Universal Orlando didn’t find it amusing when it cost him his job. The actor, who remains unidentified, was dressed in character and made the “OK” symbol while standing behind the back of a biracial girl in a photo on the set of a movie. Universal confirms the story. In addition, the Anti-Defamation League updated its data base of hate symbols last week with the “OK” gesture.

Frankly, I never realized NASA was so racist. 😉

Next, we recently learned the use of mathematics is racist. Calling it “Weapons of Math Destruction,” Dr. Cathy O’Neil, a mathematician from Harvard, contends math, particularly statistics, has been used extensively to regulate blacks by whites. As such, math is used for discrimination and therefore is evil. She explains this in a recent YouTube video. This one is particularly hard to swallow, maybe it is her green hair that is at the root of all this.

 

I saw an interview on Tucker Carlson recently where another liberal defended the notion of math being used for racist purposes, but took it further by contending all whites are, by definition, racists. I was confused by this as she was white as well. Perhaps she meant all liberals are nuts for suggesting such an idea.

All of these taboos are getting out of hand and I wonder when it will ever stop. Probably never.

The next thing you will hear is that expressions such as “please” and “thank you” denotes racism as it suggests subservient behavior towards others thereby creating a master/slave relationship. In this case, they are mistaking simple manners with racism.

So, is political correctness “OK” with you? Oy!

America’s Democrats Bow to Chinese and Soviet Marxism

“We are indebted to Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin for giving us a weapon. The weapon is not a machine-gun, but Marxism-Leninism.” – Mao Zedong

“The goal of socialism is communism.” – Vladimir Lenin

“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” – Mao Zedong

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” – Vladimir Lenin


Voltaire, who died in 1778 in France said,

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

And just who rules over us?  Despite our populist President and Republican Senate majority, it appears as though the Democratic Socialists are running the country and have been for nearly a century.

Sometimes a seemingly innocuous situation can demonstrate to the world where many corporations’ true values lie, especially when they kowtow to Communist China’s big stick. Even the NBA has shown its colors in bowing to the Reds.  Daryl Morey, the general manager of the Houston Rockets, sparked backlash in China after tweeting support for the protests in Hong Kong.  He was immediately excoriated by Lebron James and others who knelt to Communist China over American freedoms, all for the love of money.

While Hong Kong fights for freedom from mainland China, America’s youth rally behind the communist Democratic candidates believing that utopia exists for everyone with socialism.

Comments from my previous article regarding the 1941 Lend Lease Act attest that some older Americans understand the extent of Soviet/Marxist espionage within our country.  A Vietnam veteran wrote this:

Reading your article infuriates me no end when I consider that I served six years in the USMC during the Vietnam era and recalled the mantra and government propaganda of how good people died in the swamps and jungles on the pretense of defeating communism while communism grew fat and sassy on American soil. As I told people many times, ‘Kill a commie in Vietnam you get a medal; come home and kill one on American soil and you get life in prison.’

The fact that they exist in our government, much less are allowed to exist, is an insult to every person who died or was injured in Vietnam.

I was saddened, and infuriated when I read Trevor Loudon’s latest article stating that Russia had to be saved from Hitler’s destruction.

Another comment was from Mary who is 80 years young:

I was just a child, but I remember my father talking about the Lend Lease Act as he read the editorial page at the breakfast table.  Every time the Act was mentioned, it was preceded by the word, ‘damned.’  Even though many years have passed, when I started reading your article, I knew full well what the Act entailed.  My father despised all those people surrounding Roosevelt and he would often allude to the fact that none of our allies ever paid back the money the U.S. lent them during WWI. Thank goodness President Trump understands the complexities of our entangling alliances.  I pray he is re-elected.

Bowing to Beijing

Brett Decker’s book, Bowing to Beijing, gives a clear picture of what Communist China is truly like.

China is “stealing technology, ripping off patents and trademarks, manipulating and even counterfeiting U.S. currency, breaking trade laws, misrepresenting military spending, selling toxic toys to American children, dispatching armies of foreign agents to influence U.S. politicians, testing U.S. resolve on sensitive diplomatic issues, purchasing stakes in our banks and buying up our land, taking control of Hollywood, nurturing U.S. commercial dependency on Chinese business, building a blue-water navy, expanding its nuclear arsenal, and hacking our computer networks.” (Page 6, Bowing to Beijing)

More than one million Turkic Muslims, the Uighurs (pronounced wee-grrs) have been put in detention camps in China’s western region of Xinjiang to “re-educate” them into communist converts.  The cruelty by the guards is rarely told, including gang rapes and medical experiments.

China’s government is more authoritarian than ever despite increased trade with America. It is not becoming more free and capitalistic as some experts believe. As we make China richer, and their military stronger, it is becoming correspondingly less free.

  • The Reds arrest and torture any with faith that is antithetical to Marxist atheism.
  • Reporters’ freedom is nearly non-existent…there is violent fear of reprisal.
  • Freedom of speech is non-existent, those who speak out disappear.
  • Freedom of assembly is verboten. Farmers, factory workers, white-collar professionals are mowed down if they dare to join in any mass movement.  Remember Tiananmen Square.
  • No one thrives without approval and active backing of their communist overlords.
  • Life is not respected, although the one-child plan has recently been removed.  The organs of executed inmates (dissidents) are harvested for transplants in the global market.  They refuse to recognize life and trample the rest of basic rights.
  • Criticism in any form is rejected and can end anyone who complains in prison.

Decker tells that the Penal Meat Market is very real.  A shot to the back of the head keeps organs intact.  The body parts of prisoners bring a tidy profit, and, “If you want a heart, kidneys, unlined skin, they’ll shoot a prisoner to order,” said two Chinese organ traders.

Forced labor for prisoners is a way of life, and they make products for the West.  They are padlocked in dormitories and forced to work up to 18 hours a day in subhuman environments.  Apple, IPods, Bluetooth accessories, Ikea products and Marks and Spencer clothing are just a few of the items made by slave prison labor.

In China’s officially atheist nation, being a Christian or believing in God is considered subversive.  There is and continues to be a savage campaign against Christians despite Christianity being the fastest growing religion in the People’s Republic, but militant government atheists are pushing back.  (Page 16-31, Bowing to Beijing).

Mao Zedong said, “Communism is not love, Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy.”  This is what America supports as most-favored-nation (MFN) trade status for China.  In 2002, President George W. Bush granted permanent trade status to Communist Red China.

Western Complicity

Glenn Reynolds, Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Tennessee wrote praise for Vladimir Bukovsky’s book, Judgment in Moscow, Soviet Crimes and Western Complicity.  Reynolds said, “Russian interference in Western politics has been in the news of late, but Bukovsky’s deep dive into Soviet era documents demonstrates that for much of the 20th century, since at least the 1930s, it was not paranoid fantasy, but cold, hard fact.”

Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky spent twelve years in Russian psychiatric hospitals, prisons or labor camps.  The Soviet Union expelled him in 1976, but in 1992, he was asked to return to Russia as an expert witness at a trial against Boris Yeltsin.  He requested access to the Central Committee archives and copied and smuggled out thousands of pages before being discovered.  His findings were published in Judgment in Moscow in 1995 and translated in French, Russian and other European languages.

Cato Org.

His book documenting Western complicity didn’t find a U.S. publisher for almost 25 years.  It was finally published in English in May of 2019 by a small California publishing house. Bukovsky passed away in Cambridge, England on October 27th, 2019 at the age of 76.  Please read his bio, and Diana West’s eulogy for this great warrior for freedom.

Soviet Russia is no different than China, and Bukovsky proved that time and again.  He wrote, “Any sane person knows full well when he has entered into collusion with evil.” Bukovsky knew that engagement by the West with despots only leads to corruption, not freedom.  He wrote, “The voice of conscience whispers that our fall began from the moment we agreed to ‘peaceful coexistence’ with evil.”

When Putin became president, Bukovsky was quick to realize what this meant for Russia: the KGB was back.  Putin spent 16 years in the KGB before entering politics.  Judgment in Moscow tells of murder by Putin.

McCarthy was Right

  1. Stanton Evans’ book, Stalin’s Secret Agents, The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government substantiates the pro-Red influence on American policy during the Cold War, and Blacklisted by History, verifies that the anti-anti-Communists won by destroying Senator Joseph McCarthy.

For recent documentation, one need only read Diana West’s book, The Red Thread which thoroughly connects Obama henchmen Nellie Ohr, James Comey, John Brennan and others to socialist/communist ideology.  West’s American Betrayal tells the whole sordid tale of three Soviet agents who influenced President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to pass the Lend Lease Act resulting in massive support of Soviet Russia during WWII over and above Great Britain and even our own country.

American Socialism/Communism

Today’s Democratic Party communists are pushing the same party line used by the Russian Bolsheviks and Mao’s Single Party State in China. Our history is being destroyed, education in America has become politically correct propaganda from kindergarten through higher education, free speech is censored despite the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights, unborn human babies are murdered daily now reaching over 60 million and states have legalized infanticide, the media constantly lies with impunity, and public decorum, civility and respect for property has disintegrated.

Democratic presidential candidates are spewing their proletariat utopia, which has influenced so many Americans who have never been schooled in American history or our Constitution. Shockingly 45 percent of young Americans prefer socialism, and even 26 percent of baby boomers agree.

We’ve all heard of progressive taxation, punishing the wealthy by taxing them at higher rates, and wealth redistribution via “earned” Income Tax Credits, the only venue program fund to be considered a high risk for improper payments.

American History

It’s been sixty years since American high schools taught our history, our Constitution, the American Revolution for independence and how our founders fought for freedom.   Mao Zedong’s revolutionary takeover of China in 1949, expelling Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist Party to Taipei, Taiwan and destroying the history of the Republic of China and the Qing Dynasty is now happening in America.

Protestors on the small island of Taiwan do not want Red Chinese mainland in control. They wave American flags, show pictures of President Trump, and sing our national anthem.  Their call is freedom!

Political correctness is blinding the eyes of our young.  Schools have been renamed because they were previously named to honor Civil War generals such as Stonewall Jackson and others.

American statues of southern veterans are destroyed, without even a glance at their true history.  Robert E. Lee is vilified despite the fact he gave freedom to inherited slaves ten years before the war, and that his wife taught black folks to read and write, against the laws of the time.

General Nathan Bedford Forrest rode with Tennessee’s sheriffs to disband the KKK and was vilified while on stage, when he kissed a black woman’s cheek.  Remember too that his black servants, not slaves, chose to go with him to war.

We are not only revising our history, but we are destroying it…just as Communist China has done since 1949, and as Russia did before them after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.

American Education

For more than a century, American education has been watered down.  Decades ago, phonics was eliminated in the first grade of our government schools, Latin was eliminated in our high schools.  Even cursive writing has been eliminated, although a few states have brought it back.  Today’s education from kindergarten to post graduate degrees is nothing but leftist (communist) propaganda.  By the late 1800s, academic basics were being slowly eliminated.

Common Core socialist education is rampant.  Children come home telling their parents they’ve ruined the world, that climate change is real, that socialism is good, that collectivism is wonderful and all people will be equal.  Christianity is verboten, but Islam is taught and girls are even dressed in hijabs.  Our colleges and universities are loaded with communist professors and the students are radicalized. Individualism is hated.  Millions of Americans are functionally illiterate and 20 percent of high school graduates can’t read.

Chinese children are taught to excel in math, science, technology, engineering, etc., but they are fed the Marxist propaganda. Kindergarten students in Communist Red China are forced to sign away their religious beliefs.

American education today is a carbon copy of the propaganda sold to children in communist countries like Red China and Soviet Russia.

Baby Murder

There’s little difference between China and America’s love of abortion and infanticide.  The “Dying Rooms” of China are similar to the dying rooms of America.  In both countries unborn children are murdered daily by the thousands, but the reality is that like China, born alive infants of abortion are left alone to die.

When Obama was in the Illinois legislature, he voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA) several times.  He preferred they died alone in back rooms after they survived murder by their mothers.

The transcript from the 1995 BBC television documentary tells the story.  Chinese infants who were about one year old, or even younger, were tied to beds at night to die. Once, an infant’s fingers and hand were eaten by rats. We’ve moved into that ungodly, evil realm.

Infanticide in America has been greenlighted. Attorneys for David Daleiden submitted a closing argument brief detailing that live births are occurring inside the abortion facilities and that these newborns are routinely killed and their organs harvested while still alive.   Link

California’s Governor Newsom has signed a bill mandating free abortions at colleges and universities.

Marx and Satan

There is no doubt that social media is censoring everything conservative, and everything that pertains to our once proud Judeo-Christian heritage.  Christianity was long ago tossed from our government schools; it’s not allowed in much of anything anymore. Society is purposefully devoid of God.  Marxist doctrine is atheistic and hates the Creator. Voluntary Christian prayers are not allowed in schools, but mandatory Islamic prayers are okay.

China only allows versions of the Bible sanctioned by the state.  Children under 18 cannot enter churches, crosses have been removed, and many churches destroyed.  In America leftists and Hollywood depict Christians as fools who believe in fairy tales.

Here is a partial list of religious removals across America.  Atheists are the antagonists, and the Democratic Party has become the communist anti-God movement.

Conclusion

Pastor Wurmbrand’s book, Marx and Satan tells the story of what it’s like to be a Christian prisoner in communist controlled Romania. Wurmbrand was tortured for 13 years in and testified to our Senate what he suffered under Romania’s Nicolae Ceaușescu.

This must never happen to America.  We must stand for freedom, and having done all, to stand.  Ephesians 6:13 KJV

Meet Ann Davison Sattler running for the Seattle City Council

It is always important to listen to citizens when they send us an email. Laura sent us an email about the November 5th, 2019 non-partisan District 5 race for the Seattle City Council staying:

If possible, I hope you can also post an article to support Ann Davison Sattler who is running for Seattle City Council in District 5.  The person who she  is running against, Debora Juarez is rude to people.  Here is a video as proof of the rudeness of Deborah Juarez:

Seattle, like many cities, is controlled by those who have ignored the people. Ann Davison Sattler wants to change that holier than thou attitude of the members of the City Council. In the above video the gentleman is clearly concerned that the sitting members of the Seattle City Council are more interested in their cell phones than they are interested in what he has to say. He even quotes George Orwell and the proclamation by the pigs who control the government in the novel Animal Farm,

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

Seattle can count itself among many West Coast cities that have become Animal Farms, where the people are being treated like animals by those who control the government.

Perhaps it is time for a change of direction in Seattle? Perhaps Ann Davison Sattler is the one person who wants to treat all of the citizens of Seattle, Washington as equals?

PODCAST: The Impeachment Sideshow

When moving boxes started showing up in about 20 Democrats’ offices yesterday, it was supposed to be a joke. But after Thursday’s impeachment resolution, some House members might want to hang on to the supplies. “Get packing!” the label told vulnerable Democrats, who voted to make the sham probe official. “Since day one, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Washington Democrats have sought to remove this president from office,” Rep. Mike Bost (R-Ill.) argued. But based on the latest battleground polling, the real question isn’t whether Donald Trump will lose his job – but how many Pelosi “moderates” will lose theirs.

After weeks of speculation, the only bipartisan vote on impeachment, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) pointed out, “was against it.” With the help of two Democrats, Reps. Colin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, House Republicans sent a resounding message that the case against Donald Trump is rooted in nothing but politics. “They said they wanted to impeach him before he was even president of the United States…” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said on Thursday’s “Washington Watch.” “This isn’t about violations or crimes—which, by the way, is what the founders warned against.”

“If you look at where we are at right now,” Scalise went on, “we’re at an important point in history. Clearly, there are people that we serve with that don’t like the results of the 2016 election—that’s their prerogative—but [next year], the country… will be deciding who our president is going to be. It should not be Nancy Pelosi and a small group of people that she selects that get to determine who’s going to be our president.”

What this is, at its core, is a vote to deny Americans theirs. Democrats “don’t trust the people” to elect a president, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) argued. Why? Because they’re scared out of their minds about who the country would pick if they have the chance. Even Democrat Al Green (Texas) was blunt about the motivation behind this circus: “If they don’t impeach the president, he will get reelected.” But that’s not why we have impeachment. “Only in extraordinary and extreme instances should it be applied,” Congressman Darin LaHood insisted, “and as a former federal prosecutor, nothing in the facts or evidence presented so far supports [it].”

And everything leading up to this point proves it. “The Clinton and the Nixon impeachment were televised live,” Scalise reminded everyone. “Both sides had the same set of rules—fair rules. Republicans and Democrats could both call witnesses. The president was able to have legal counsel in the room. That’s not the case today. And in fact, we’ve seen what’s gone on in [Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) little secret chamber, where he’s hiding—literally having meetings in secret—and that’s [not justice]…” This is the very thing Alexander Hamilton warned about in Federalist Paper #65, Steve went on, that “he was concerned the power of impeachment could one day be abused for political purposes as opposed to for criminal acts. And unfortunately, today on the House floor… Democrats [did] just that.”

It’s easy to understand why Pelosi and her party are threatened. This is a president who was elected by promising to do very specific things—and he’s doing them. In the history of this country, the Left has never experienced the kind of resolve of a Republican president like Donald Trump. Unlike his predecessors, he isn’t yielding to the pressure of the Left—but moving forward, changing the way American politics operate. He’s in touch with the people and following through on an agenda that’s a slap in the face to the socialists in the House. And that’s what’s driving the Left crazy—not these phantom crimes and misdemeanors.

At the end of the day, Scalise knows, “They can’t beat him at the ballot box,” so “they’re trying to throw everything at him today.” And even that’s not slowing him down. While they’re wasting their entire majority on a political vendetta, the White House is hunting down terrorists, destroying ISIS, nominating judges, making trade deals, boosting the economy, and protecting innocent Americans. If they want to impeach the president, fine. But impeaching his conservative agenda will be next to impossible.

Bernie Sanders Wants to Cut Aid for Israel and Give It to Hamas [Part 2] by Hugh Fitzgerald

Bernie Sanders does not appear to know that whatever “humanitarian crisis” there may be in Gaza, it is not Israel, but Hamas that has caused it. Hamas has harmed the Gazan Arabs in several ways. First, despite the fact that Gazans have received many billions of dollars in aid,  the fantastic corruption of its leaders has siphoned off a good deal of it. Both Khaled Meshal, the former head of Hamas’ political wing, who now lives in  Qatar, and Moussa Abu Marzouk, a senior leader of Hamas who now lives in Egypt, have each amassed fortunes of at least $2.5 billion; some Arab investigators believe that Meshaal may now have as much as $5 billion. This amount, of between $5 and $7.5 billion, was meant to be aid for the people of Gaza. Israel had nothing to do with such a diversion of funds. Ismail Haniyeh, the current leader of Hamas, is reported to now have his own fortune of tens of millions of dollars, for he receives the proceeds of a 20% tax on all goods smuggled into Gaza from Egypt. In addition, there are at least 600 “Hamas millionaires” living in Gaza. There are no signs that Hamas leaders will end this corruption; they, after all, are the prime beneficiaries.

The second way that Hamas has caused a “humanitarian crisis” in Gaza is by misusing funds meant for such things as residential housing, improvements to energy infrastructure so as to avoid frequent power cuts,  and wastewater treatment plants (such as the North Gaza Wastewater Treatment Plant, finally put into operation in 2018 after years of delay, paid for entirely by foreign – European – donors. including the World Bank). Instead of undertaking such improvements, all of which would instantly improve the lives of the Gazan Arabs, Hamas chooses to use that aid in building a huge military armory; rockets and missiles are expensive. And when Hamas uses part of that armory in an effort to rain death down on Israeli towns, it is not just Hamas, but all the Gazans, who suffer from the inevitable retaliation.

If Bernie Sanders were willing to do a little investigating – less than a half-hour of googling would do — he could find out about the fantastic theft of many billions in aid money by Hamas leaders, about the use for military purposes of much of the aid that remains, instead of spending it on reconstruction for the sake of Gazan civilians. He would discover that Israel’s “blockade” does not extend to food, nor, any longer, to fuel. And he would learn about the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at Israel. He would also find out about Hamas’ blood-curdling threats to kill not just all Israelis, but all Jews, everywhere.

He would find out that Israel tried, from the very moment it left Gaza, to help it inhabitants economically. Israel turned over, as a turn-key business, the 3,000 greenhouses that the Palestinians could have continued to run and expand, in an operation worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year. Instead, they chose to destroy them. Israeli employers also hired tens of thousands of Gazans, to work both in Gaza and in Israel, and only cut back later on such employment for security reasons.

Here’s what, having duly informed himself, Bernie Sanders could say about Gaza:

“I am deeply concerned about the ordinary people of Gaza, who are held in thrall by Hamas, a terrorist group that continues to attack Israel’s civilians with rockets and mortar fire. Billions of dollars have been given by aid groups to Gaza, too much of which ends up in the coffers of Hamas, the terrorist group that rules Gaza with an iron fist. And Hamas leaders have diverted billions – think of that, billions! – of that aid to themselves. Two of its top leaders, Khaled Meshaal and Moussa Abu Marzouk, have managed to amass fortunes of $2.5-5 billion and $2.5 billion respectively. In addition, the current leader of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, is said to now have a fortune of tens of millions of dollars; there are 600 Hamas members in Gaza who are believed to be millionaires, all of those fortunes are in the midst of so much  poverty among the ordinary Gazans. I think that the people of Gaza deserve to have that money returned, clawed back, for their benefit.

“I also think that Hamas should be shifting its priorities. Instead of spending money on expensive rockets and missiles, the use of which by Hamas only brings Israeli retribution, and does not improve the life of a single Gazan, all the aid money should go to reconstruction of housing, power plants, the electric grid, and waste-water management. Let every penny of that aid money be used to improve the lives of ordinary Gazans, instead of enriching a handful of Hamas leaders..

“And there is another thing that has always disturbed me. Why is it that tens of billions of dollars in aid have been given by the West, including the United States, as aid to the Palestinians in both Gaza and the West Bank, while so little is given to them by their fellow Arabs? Why can’t the Gulf Arabs come through with real money to help the Palestinians, and not just with a billion here and a billion there? Those Gulf Arabs have annual incomes of tens, and in some cases even receive hundreds of billions of dollars; surely they can spare some for the Arabs of Gaza and the West Bank? At that meeting in Manama, $50 billion in aid for the Palestinians was discussed – a sum that really would make a difference in the lives of Palestinians. And the Gulf Arabs can easily afford that. I call on them to contribute their fair share, without further excuses or delays.

“And to make sure that corrupt leaders do not again help themselves to much of that aid, or spend it on weapons, the disbursal of the aid should be the responsibility of financial technocrats assigned to the task by a U.N. oversight committee. Let’s see how that arrangement fares, and let’s for decency’s sake please  stop – and I  am ashamed to say that I was one of them – blaming Israel for the Gazans’ plight.”

Bernie Sanders Wants to Cut Aid for Israel and Give It to Hamas [Part 1] by Hugh Fitzgerald

The appalling tale is here.

Addressing a meeting of the left-wing J Street, a Jewish organization devoted to pressuring Israel to meet Palestinian demands, Bernie Sanders outdid himself:

“My solution is to say to Israel: you get $3.8 billion dollars every year, if you want military aid you’re going to have to fundamentally change your relationship to the people of Gaza,” Sanders said. “In fact, I think it is fair to say that some of that should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza.

Sanders denounced the situation in Gaza as “absolutely inhumane,” “unacceptable,” and “unsustainable.”

“The Palestinian people have a right to live in peace and security as well. It is not anti-Semitism to say that Netanyahu’s government has been racist,” Sanders continued.

If the situation in Gaza is “absolutely inhumane,” “unacceptable,” and “unsustainable,” as Bernie seems to think – it’s not nearly that dire — that is due entirely to the corrupt lords of misrule in Hamas, whose top leaders have stolen up to $7.5 billion of that aid (see the discussion below) and spend what is left not on things which benefit the people of Gaza, such as residential housing, power plants, and water treatment plants, but on amassing an expensive armory of rockets to use against Israel.

It is up to the Palestinians in Gaza to chose whether to live in “peace and security.” It is they who have been making war, while Israel is only responding to their attacks. Israel has been the target of thousands of Hamas rockets, not the other way round. Israel never initiates attacks; it responds to them. Israel wants nothing more than to live, with its neighbors in Gaza, in “peace and security,” but it has discovered that the only way to end the attacks from Gaza is to respond with decisive force. This buys a certain period of “peace and security,” then the Gazans renew their rocket attacks; Israel again responds; the Gazan rockets again stop being sent into Israel, and “peace and security” is again reestablished, until the next time Hamas decides to break both the peace and the security.

How has Netanyahu’s government “been racist”? Presumably by defending itself against Hamas, the terrorist group that runs Gaza, when it sends rockets by the hundreds into Israeli civilian centers, or lets loose incendiary kites to set Israeli farms on fire, or attempt to breach Israel’s security fence, with Molotov cocktails, grenades, and sometimes live fire, in order to kill Israeli soldiers and civilians? In attempting to defend itself from those who attack it and call for its destruction, is Israel being “racist’? The only “racism” is that directed by the Muslims at the Jews, all Jews, and not just those in Israel. Hamas has repeatedly called on Palestinians to kill all Jews. This past summer, Hamas official Fathi Hamad told Palestinians that “there are Jews everywhere! We must attack every Jew on planet Earth — we must slaughter and kill them, with Allah’s help. Enough warming up!” Is Sanders familiar with Hamas’s murderous rhetoric? Does he know of any Israeli who talks about Palestinians in such a way? Does he know that Fath Hamad’s virulent Jew-hatred can also be found on Palestinian children’s shows, and in Palestinian textbooks?

And when Sanders attacks the “racist” Israelis, he overlooks how Arabs fare in Israel. Does he realize that Israeli Arabs serve in the Knesset, on the Supreme Court, as senior diplomats, even – as volunteers – in the IDF, where they rise high in the officer corps? Does he know that Arabs study at Israeli universities, that in Israeli hospitals Jewish and Arab doctors and other medical personnel work side by side treating both Jewish and Arab patients? Does he know that Arabs and Jews work together in factories, on farms, in service industries? And all this in “racist” Israel.

Sanders appears not to realize that Israel does not occupy Gaza; that not a single Israeli has remained there since the final pullout in 2005. Nor does he mention – does he know and not think it matters? — that Gaza is run by Hamas, a terrorist organization which has sent thousands of rockets indiscriminately into Israel. Even the left-wing Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have both defined these Hamas attacks as “war crimes.” Hamas is murderous not just towards Israelis, but toward its Arab opponents as well; it has crushed Fatah in Gaza, killing hundreds of its members.

Israel’s blockade of Gaza is only a response to Hamas attacks. It is mainly directed at preventing construction material, such as concrete and iron, from being imported into Gaza, that can be used to reinforce Hamas military emplacements. Is Sanders aware that Israel allows fuel into Gaza precisely, as one Israeli spokesman said, to “prevent the civilian-humanitarian deterioration of the Strip”? Is he aware that Israel also allows humanitarian agencies to provide Gaza with millions of liters of diesel fuel and gasoline, fruits and vegetables, wheat, sugar, meat, chicken and fish products, dairy products, animal feed, hygiene products, clothing and shoes? Somehow one doubts that Bernie Sanders has been paying attention. And of course Gazans who cannot find suitable medical care in the Strip are allowed to use Israeli hospitals. Among them have been the relatives of several Hamas leaders, including Ismael Haniyeh and Khaled Meshaal, who have sought and been given treatment in Israel – that, too, would surely come as a surprise to Bernie Sanders.

The true enemy of the people of Gaza are not the Israelis. When they left Gaza, they handed over the greenhouses, then worth $14 million, that Israelis had built, as part of a thriving multi-million- dollar business in flowers that, it was hoped by Israel, could eventually bring the Gazans as much as $200 million in income. Israel had assumed the Gazan Arabs would continue to operate and expand the business, but instead, the Arabs destroyed the greenhouses completely, grabbing irrigation hoses, water pumps, and plastic sheeting in a blow to this fledgling efforts to reconstruct the Gaza Strip.

Israeli employers have also given work to tens of thousands of Gazans, both in Gaza and in Israel itself. In response to Hamas rocket attacks, some of those who used to travel to Israel for work can no longer do so. Should Israel then be blamed for taking such security measures?

Hamas has organized the “Great March of Return,” which every Friday since March 2018 sends Palestinians marching toward Israel’s security fence, to attempt to breach it in order to kill Israeli soldiers and civilians. It is the Palestinians who are attempting to attack Israelis in their own land; Israel has merely been defending its security fence. The Palestinians throw Molotov cocktails, grenades, incendiary kites, and sometimes use live fire. Meanwhile, the Israeli soldiers first use tear gas and rubber bullets, to head off the rioters, and if that doesn’t deter sufficiently, they use live fire, ordinarily aiming at the legs and then, and only as a last resort, when some rioters have actually breached the fence, they will aim above the waist. If there were no marchers with Molotov cocktails, grenades, incendiary bombs, and other explosives, relentlessly attempting to breach the security fence, there would be only peace from the Israeli side.

The Ten Reasons I would Never, Ever vote for a Democrat — and it has nothing to do with Trump

First let me begin my column with a confession: When I was in college I was a JFK Democrat!

President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was a decorated combat war veteran, charismatic, had a beautiful wife and family, was a hawk who hated Communism (remember the 13 days in October, 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis), was a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and JFK was what would now be considered a conservative in economic and social policies. JFK was also wealthy, a Catholic, like me, and had affairs with various women including Marilyn Monroe. JFK was not a perfect man but he was the perfect man for the job of President during a difficult time.

Here are my ten reasons, all based upon personal experiences well before the election of Donald J. Trump, why I would never, ever vote for a Democrat:

  1. I served in the U.S. Army as an officer from 1967 until 1990. I served under Presidents Lyndon B. Johnston (D), Richard Nixon (R), Gerald Ford (R), Jimmy Carter (D), Ronald Reagan (R) and George H.W. Bush (R). I served under two Democrat presidents and four Republican presidents. The best years for the U.S. military were the years under a Republican president. The worst president during my time in service was Jimmy Carter, remember the Iran Hostage Crisis, failed Desert 1 rescue attempt and fuel shortages (even the Army felt the lack of fuel). I remember during the Carter years we had to tow our howitzers to firing points near our motor pool because we didn’t have the diesel fuel needed to move them any further.
  2. I was stationed in Augsburg, Germany in from 1970 to 1973 when the terrorist Black September Organization, Arabic Aylūl al-Aswad, a faction of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), attacked the Olympic Village in Munich, Germany on September 5-6, 1972. My unit was called out to provide additional security at the Olympic Village after the attack. I learned a harsh lesson that day, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to stopping the followers of Mohammed.
  3. While stationed in Germany we were confronted by another terrorist organization know as the Red Army Faction, also known as the Baader–Meinhof Group or Baader–Meinhof Gang. The Baader–Meinhof Gang was a West German far-left militant organization founded in 1970. The Baader–Meinhof Gang were killing public officials, robbing banks, attacking places frequented by U.S. Army soldiers and kidnapping both German politicians and the children of Americans stationed in Germany. What is most interesting is that both the Black September Organization and Baader–Meinhof Gang were trained by the PLO.
  4. The Iran Hostage Crisis ended on the day Ronald Reagan was elected President of the United States on January  21, 1981. The hostages were released just a few hours after President Reagan’s inauguration address.
  5. In early 1970s we in the military did not make the connection between the Communists and radical Islamists. This error would result in more deaths during each of the years after President Reagan’s inauguration. Perhaps the most devastating event occurred on October 23, 1983, when two truck bombs struck the Khobar Towers in Beirut, Lebanon. A hotel housing American Marines and French service members of the Multinational Force in Lebanon, a military peacekeeping operation during the Lebanese Civil War. The suspected perpetrators were Hezbollah, along with some Iranian and Syrian involvement. President Reagan made the decision to leave Lebanon rather than confront Hezbollah, Syria and Iran. Sound familiar today?
  6. In 1991, one year after I retired, President H.W. Bush decided to attack Iraq after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. I watched this event with great interest. American forces were pre-positioned along with allied forces set to invade Iraq. The operation was wildly successful, with one exception. President H.W. Bush stopped the war before he toppled Saddam Hussein. This was a major blunder that would eventually lead to his son George W. Bush’s second invasion in 2003.
  7. The second invasion of Iraq was based on a faulty CIA intelligence report that Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction.” After the invasion and toppling of Saddam and his sons, no weapons of mass destruction were found. I asked myself if the CIA purposefully mislead President Bush and his Secretary of State Colin Powell, which became a front page news story, leading to the election of Barack Obama. Was the CIA, and others in the intelligence community, showing themselves as the “deep state”? Able to wrongfully take America to war and impact the election of the next president?
  8. During the eight years of the Obama presidency I began to see clearly that various departments of the federal government were being used against America’s allies and against Americans who disagreed with the policies implemented by the Democrats in Congress and pushed by Obama. I also began to see the Obama administration use its powers to silence those who criticized what had been enemies of America, e.g. Iran. I began to see our military depleted as I personally experienced during the Carter years. I began to wonder what should I do about this movement to appease our enemies and attack our friends and allies.
  9. The growing support of a one world order became a focus of my efforts to try to understand what was happening both within the American body politic and globally. The rush by the Obama administration to embrace the Paris Climate Accord, push the deeply flawed Iranian Nuclear Deal and the massive effort to use our public education system down to K-12 to promote socialist policies began to bother me. I was just thankful that my grandchildren were being homeschooled.
  10. Finally, I see what is happening today in Washington, D.C. The concerted effort by one party to take away the peoples choice for president. This is the culmination of what I have been in fear of, a Communist (red) and Islamist (green) alliance to destroy our Constitutional Republican form of government. I fear for my people.

I am on the mailing lists for every Democrat PAC, committee, caucus, elected official and candidate for president. What I see on a daily basis is a constant barrage of emails calling for the elimination of the Electoral College, the desire to elect more LGBT candidates, like the bisexual former Rep. Katie Hill who resigned just four days ago, the fear that President Trump will replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the hate for Susan Collins because she voted in favor of Justice Bret Kavanaugh, the hate for Senator Lindsey Graham because he is putting strict constructionist judges into our federal courts, the hate for Senator Mitch McConnell for not going along with the “impeachment process”, whatever that means.

Over my life time I have seen the Democratic Party become the Party of Marx and Mohammed, a growing Red/Green alliance among the Democrat progressive caucus. I have seen the party that elected JFK devolve into the party of BHO. I have witnessed things that I would never have thought possible. Things like: police officers deliberately targeted by black assassins, our schools become propaganda arms of the socialists, our libraries hosting LGBT reading hours for small children, and the likelihood that the Obama administration spied on a duly elected president. Finally, I have seen Democrat candidates for president care more about illegal aliens than American citizens, a party who’s platform is based on hating America and those Americans who do not agree with them and their policies.

We are in a pivotal moment in history. I know this sounds corny but it is never the less true. Great institutions like the Boy Scouts of America and Catholic Church have been destroyed by the gay rights political correctness radicals. I am seeing the growth of Big Digital and Corporate Marxism that wants to control the individual in ways never thought possible.

I am living in an era where good is evil and evil is now public policy. A world where God has been replaced by government in Western societies. Where Islam continues to move forward in its mandate to rule the world by all means necessary.

However, there are lights in all of this darkness. Kanye West has become a born again Christian. Populism is on the rise and freedom is now taken to the streets of places like Hong Kong.

There is hope for my grandchildren. There is hope for America, that shining light upon a hill. It’s that hope for a better future that makes me understand that I can never, ever vote for a Democrat. Period.
