In 2020 Big government has become the ‘Opiate of the People!’ How did this happen?

“Religion is the opiate of the people.” – Karl Marx

”In a country where the sole employer is the State, opposition means death by slow starvation. The old principle: who does not work shall not eat, has been replaced by a new one: who does not obey shall not eat.” ― Leon Trotsky


Big government is now the opiate of the people.

Let’s review a brief historical perspective on how America got here and then open up the much needed national discussion on the need for big government. 

We the people began to embrace big government 115 years ago with the founding of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society (ISS) in New York City on September 12, 1905 in Peck’s Restaurant. An organizational meeting was held and Jack London was elected President with Upton Sinclair as First Vice President. The ISS was established to,

“throw light [in America] on the world-wide movement of industrial democracy known as socialism.”

Their motto was “production for use, not for profit.”

Production for use, not for profit is the prime goal of big government.

So how could socialists begin selling big government and its redistribution of wealth ideology? First they had to gain unfettered control of production. On February 3, 1913 Congress passed and the states ratified the Sixteenth Amendment to our Constitution. Congress grabbed control of production via the federal income tax. America taxed its productivity by tapping every American’s wages. With the millions, then billions, and now trillions of dollars that Congress collected, they could entice or even force the strongest American to take the big government drug.

Then on April 8, 1913 Congress passed and the states ratified the Seventeenth Amendment to the Constitution which transferred U.S. Senator Selection from each state’s legislature to popular election by the people of each state. These two events made it much easier to collect and distribute big government as now Senators were no longer loyal to their state legislatures or primarily concerned with state sovereignty. Now U.S. Senators, along with U.S. Representatives, saw the value of spreading  the big government drug amongst the people in return for votes.

During the Great Depression Congress created the first “opiate for the masses” and named it Social Security. It was to be a social insurance program run by government, in other words guaranteed government largesse for life. The Social Security Act was signed into law in 1935 by President Franklin Roosevelt. He and Congress said this new drug would keep those unemployed, retirees and the poor financially secure. He called it the New Deal. All we needed to do was just pay in and all would be well.

In 1937 the United States Supreme Court in U.S. vs. Butler validated the Social Security Act and stated that, “Congress could, in its future discretion, spend that money [collected from the income tax] for whatever Congress then judged to be the general welfare of the country. The Court held that Congress has no constitutional power to earmark or segregate certain kinds of tax proceeds for certain purposes, whether the purposes be farm-price supports, foreign aid or social security payments.” All taxes went into the general fund.

Testifying before the Ways and Means Committee of the House of Representatives in 1952, the chief actuary of the Social Security Administration said—“The present trust fund is not quite large enough to pay off the benefits of existing beneficiaries”—those already on the receiving end, in other words. In 1955 chief actuary believed that it would take $35 billion just to pay the people “now receiving benefits”.

How Big Government has made us all dependent upon the state.

In 1935 under the Social Security program the Congress included the Aid to Families with Dependent Children Act (AFDC). During the late 1950s many states realized that this act, while created to help widows with children, was being used to subsidize women having children with men they were not married to. Louisiana alone took 23,000 women off the AFDC act rolls based upon their immoral behavior.

In effect big federal government became the pimp, the homes of single mothers became the brothels and the fathers became the Johns. The children begotten by these women became the next generation of big government addicts. Just as a baby born to a mother doing crack is addicted to cocaine, so too are these children born with a lifetime addiction to the onerous and destructive drug – big government. In 1960 Arthur S. Flemming, then head of the Department of Health and Human Services under President Dwight David Eisenhower and a key architect of Social Security, issued an administrative ruling that states could not deny eligibility for income assistance through the AFDC act on the grounds that a home was “unsuitable” because the woman’s children were illegitimate. In 1968, the United States Supreme Court’s “Man-in-the-House” rule struck down the practice of states declaring a home unsuitable (i.e., an immoral environment) if there was a man in the house not married to the mother. Thus, out-of-wedlock births and cohabitation were legitimized. In very short order, the number of women on welfare tripled and child poverty climbed dramatically. The assault on the family was on and Congress and the Supreme Court were co-pushers of this new government largesse drug called AFDC.

Then Congress added a new ingredient to the powerful Social Security drug called Medicare on July 30, 1965.

Congress created Medicare as a single-payer health care system. Medicare was for those over 65 years old and was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. President Johnson called it part of his Great Society program. Congress immediately got more addicts to begin taking this drug. At the same time Congress added a second even more powerful ingredient to this drug called Medicaid. This new ingredient brought into being an entirely new distribution system – all of the states of the union. Even though this new program violates state sovereignty it was passed anyway, in no small part because Senators were no longer accountable to the State Legislatures but rather committed to pushing government largesse.

The states were now helping pay for and distribute this powerful and expensive big government designer drug. The drug was offered to low-income parents, children, seniors, and people with disabilities. Congress now had more people on the Social Security drug than ever before. Congress had turned a corner – addiction to government largesse was now imbedded in our society. But Congress was not finished for it kept looking for more clients until we now know that the estimated unfunded liabilities for these four drugs are astronomical.

In 2018 it was announced that Medicare’s overall unfunded liability over 75 years is more than $37 trillion. Taken together, the combined unfunded liabilities of Social Security and Medicare are more than $50 trillion, according to official government projections.

Conclusion

We have become en-slaved by big government and their programs. Government does one thing and one thing only, it grows ever bigger and more intrusive. Today the motto is obey or starve.

In the age of Covid government has spread its wings of control to a point where people cannot even remember what life and  liberty look like. The facemask has become the new “symbol of submission.”

Pennsylvania State Legislature Files Resolution — Disputes Statewide 2020 Election Results

It is indeed happening.

It’s Happening: Pennsylvania State Legislature Files Resolution — DISPUTES STATEWIDE 2020 ELECTION RESULTS

By:  Gateway Pundit, November 27, 2020:

It is clear the Pennsylvania 2020 election was wrought with fraud and criminal conduct.
President Trump led by nearly 700,000 votes on election night.
Democrats dumped hundreds of thousands of votes to steal the state from the Trump Campaign.

On Wednesday the Pennsylvania state legislature held a hearing on the 2020 election issues and irregularities.

One witness described the huge “spikes” in Pennsylvania during the hearing and the crowd gasped.

On Friday the Pennsylvania State legislature filed a resolution to dispute the statewide 2020 election results.

Via Conservative Treehouse:

With mounting evidence of election fraud now visible, members of the Pennsylvania legislature have drafted a joint resolution [SEE HERE] to overturn election results, reverse the previous state certification, and the sponsors promise they will take it to the Supreme Court if necessary.

The Resolution

Declaring the results of statewide electoral contests in the 2020 General Election to be in dispute.

WHEREAS, Article I, Section 4, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution empowers state legislatures, including the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to prescribe the “Times, Places, and Manner” of conducting elections; and

WHEREAS, Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution empowers state legislatures, including the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to direct the manner of appointing electors for President and Vice President of the United States; and

WHEREAS, the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has exercised its authority to establish election administration procedures for the Commonwealth, known as the Pennsylvania Election Code; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania Election Code requires all mail-in ballots to be received by eight o’clock P.M. on the day of the election; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania Election Code requires election officials at polling places to authenticate the signatures of in-person voters; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania Election Code requires that county boards of elections shall not meet to conduct a pre-canvass of all absentee and mail-in ballots until seven o’clock A.M. on Election Day, during which time defects on mail-in ballots would be identified; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania Election Code prohibits the counting of defective absentee or mail-in ballots; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania Election Code authorizes “watchers,” selected by candidates and political parties, to observe the process of canvassing absentee and mail-in ballots; and

WHEREAS, the Commonwealth conducted an election on November 3, 2020 for federal offices, including selecting electors for President and Vice President of the United States; and

WHEREAS, officials in the Executive and Judicial Branches of the Commonwealth infringed upon the General Assembly’s authority under the United States Constitution by unlawfully changing the rules governing the November 3, 2020 election in the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, on September 17, 2020, less than seven weeks before the November 3, 2020 election, the partisan majority on the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania unlawfully and unilaterally extended the deadline for mail-in ballots to be received, mandated that ballots mailed without a postmark would be presumed to be received timely, and could be accepted without a verified voter signature; and

WHEREAS, on October 23, 2020, less than two weeks before the November 3, 2020 election and upon a petition from the Secretary of the Commonwealth, the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ruled that mail-in ballots need not authenticate signatures for mail-in ballots, thereby treating in-person and mail-in voters dissimilarly and eliminating a critical safeguard against potential election crime; and

WHEREAS, on November 2, 2020, the night before the November 3, 2020 election and prior to the prescribed time for pre-canvassing mail-in ballots, the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth encouraged certain counties to notify party and candidate representatives of mail-in voters whose ballots contained defects; and

WHEREAS, heavily Democrat counties permitted mail-in voters to cure ballot defects while heavily Republican counties followed the law and invalidated defective ballots; and

WHEREAS, in certain counties in the Commonwealth, watchers were not allowed to meaningfully observe the pre-canvassing and canvassing activities relating to absentee and mail-in ballots; and

WHEREAS, in other parts of the Commonwealth, watchers observed irregularities concerning the pre-canvassing and canvassing of absentee and mail-in ballots; and

WHEREAS, witnesses testifying before the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee on November 25, 2020 have provided additional compelling information regarding the questionable nature of the administration of the 2020 General Election; and

WHEREAS, there remains ongoing litigation concerning the administration of the November 3, 2020 election in the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, in 2016, Pennsylvania’s general election results were certified on December 12, 2016, and on November 24, 2020, the Secretary of the Commonwealth unilaterally and prematurely certified results of the November 3, 2020 election regarding presidential electors despite ongoing litigation; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has the duty to ensure that no citizen of this Commonwealth is disenfranchised, to insist that all elections are conducted according to the law, and to satisfy the general public that every legal vote is counted accurately;

2. Disapproves of the infringement on the General Assembly’s authority pursuant to the United States Constitution to regulate elections; and

3. Disapproves of and disagrees with the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s premature certification of the results of the November 3, 2020 election regarding presidential electors; and

4. Declares that the selection of presidential electors and other statewide electoral contest results in this Commonwealth is in dispute; and

Trump: Biden Must ‘Prove’ His 80,000,000 Votes Weren’t ‘Illegally Obtained’

President Donald Trump appeared to walk back his Thursday commitment to a peaceful transfer of power with a Friday morning tweet.

Trump, on his way to a round of golf at Trump National Golf Club, wrote that President-elect Joe Biden “Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous “80,000,000 votes” were not fraudulently or illegally obtained.”

“When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud,” the president continued. “He’s got a big unsolvable problem!”

Trump originally said during a pool spray on Thanksgiving that he “certainly” will vacate the White House if the Electoral College declares Biden the victor of the 2020 election. It was his first time taking questions since Election Day.

He claimed later Thursday night that the “Fake News Media coordinates so that the real message” of his press appearance “never gets out.”

While fielding questions Thursday, Trump additionally expressed concern that Georgia Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue will also be “robbed” in the upcoming January runoffs.

“You have a fraudulent system,” he continued before announcing he will hold a rally supporting Loeffler and Perdue in Georgia on December 5. “I think it’s very dangerous.”

Send Us Your Tireless, Suppressed, Truth Telling Online Warriors

In the few months since Winston84 has been fully activated, we have received hundreds of suggestions, encouragement, comments, and even a few trolls have shared their thoughts. To all who reached out, even the trolls: Thank you. All of you are invited to use the Contact Us page and tell us what you’re thinking.

In particular, we very much want to discover new providers of alternative content to add to our directory. The only way we’re going to find those who are being suppressed is by hearing about them from people who found them before the algorithms.

One of our newest additions is Mr. Obvious, whose reach is suppressed on all the big platforms, and whose YouTube videos have just been demonetized. Mr. Obvious has been recently producing a lot of content offering information on the contested presidential election. Information that you will never find in the mainstream press. That fact, plus the choice of name – Mr. Obvious – makes this content producer a new favorite.

After all, never mind ballots arriving by the hundreds of thousands at 4 a.m. after “counting was stopped for the night,” but only in swing states. Never mind voting machines that, apparently, any moderately talented nerd can hack and cook. Never mind “tranches” of votes, by the thousands and all for Biden, erroneously stacking the tallies because of “upload malfunctions.” Never mind same-day registration, ballot harvesting, no voter ID requirements, or missing signatures and postmarks. Never mind that Trump earned nearly 6 million votes in California, a 35 percent improvement over his 2016 performance, actually increasing his share of total votes from 31.6 to 34.3 percent, yet lost in fracking Pennsylvania.

Two other new additions to the Winston84 directory are Englishman James Delingpole, a passionate intellectual and lover of freedom who we should have added long ago, and Australian Daisy Cousens, self-described “flamethrower and feminist apostate.”

Starting in 2016, picking up steam in 2018 and becoming frighteningly obvious this year are two things: online censorship is pervasive and is relentlessly escalating, and there is nothing you will read or view on the establishment media that you can trust anymore. Everything now has to be verified independently.

Also obvious, but not nearly as frightening as the censors and media NPCs would have you believe, is the fact that not everything you’ll find in the alternative media is accurate. But thank God it exists. Tell us who they are. We will feature them here.

VIDEO: Diabolical Detroit — Evil never stays isolated.

TRANSCRIPT

Evil is never compartmentalized. It spreads like a grease fire, overflowing into all aspects of a place. A person is not both good and evil at the same time. And for clarity, we aren’t talking about people simply sinning, giving in to temptation and then going to confession.

We are talking about the embrace of evil — not just bad, sinful acts. A person can be fundamentally “good” but still sin. That understanding fits nearly everyone struggling to work out his or her salvation in fear and trembling.

No, here we are talking about a situation where a person has given himself over to evil, embraced it. Such people are fundamentally bad. For them, salvation is a much more difficult goal, for they do not even recognize the need for repentance.

So yes, Bp. Barron, we do not have a reasonable hope all men are saved because a huge number of men do not believe in salvation and flat out reject it. Stupid theology. So let’s focus on evil for a moment here. Evil can certainly be concentrated in a person, a group of people or even a place — especially if enough people in a place have embraced it.

A simple reflection on the concentration camps reveals that simple conclusion. Some places are more spiritually healthy than others, and some places are more evil. Likewise, a concentration of evil in a given area of a certain locale can certainly spill over into other areas — the “grease fire” analogy.

Let’s focus on Detroit, for example, the epicenter of the collapse of the Church in the United States back in the 1960s. Contrary to poor scholarship on the part of some Catholic authors who didn’t do their homework sufficiently when talking about the Church being “infiltrated,” it was not Chicago’s Bernardin who reigned down evil on the U.S. Church.

The Detroit domino was the first to fall, 20 years beforehand, pushed over by the wicked Cdl. John Dearden (as Church Militant has explained for the past dozen years or so). Editorial note: Careful whom you read if you’re looking for the complete picture.

When Dearden died in 1988, he was hailed by secular media as the leading liberal voice in the Church. That’s one thing the fake news got right.

Dearden, nicknamed “Iron John,” reigned in Detroit from 1958 to 1980. When he came back from Vatican II, he began a systematic gutting of the Church in Detroit, culminating in the notorious Call To Action Conference in 1976.

That conference, attended by 3,000 phony Catholics from chanceries across the country, produced a list of recommendations that would be cheered by the likes of James Martin. Rejecting Church teaching on birth control, women priests, you name it. It was all there.

While not officially adopted because of being rife with heresy, it was nonetheless taken back to dioceses all over the nation and implemented unofficially, in bits and pieces.

That led to a meltdown of the Faith in Catholic schools, seminaries, parishes and so forth. Chanceries became denizens of evil and spread that evil throughout their diocese. The virus was set loose.

However, in Detroit, for the 10 years between the end of Vatican II and the Call to Action Conference, Dearden used Motown as a sort of petri dish, a localized experiment to wipe out the Faith. That would later be carried to every diocese in the country, but at first, it was largely confined to Detroit.

It was Dearden who first ripped out the communion rails, tore the altars off the back wall and designed the “table Mass.” He implemented the substitution of sacred music for the hippy guitar songs of the anti-Vietnam-War era.

It was Dearden, not Bernadin, who launched Holy Communion in the hand and so-called Eucharistic Ministers. You name it — whatever cause you believe was the origin of the collapse of the U.S. Church, it began right here, in Detroit, beginning in the 1960s.

The Faith was first whittled away, then wiped out first in Detroit. Dearden ordained boatloads of homosexual men, many active, and at the very least sympathetic to the whole scene. Many of those men still wield enormous power and influence here, up to and including Abp. Allen Vigneron, ordained by Dearden in 1974.

Vigneron has embraced all things gay for decades, including his time in various posts in the seminary as well as rector. During his time, the ordinations of multiple gay men continued, as did the purging of straight men (who were deemed too “rigid”).

As a result, the Detroit presbyterate is awash in gay men with collars on. They adore Dearden — and why wouldn’t they? Now, at the same time the evil of homosexual impurity was gripping and strangling the local Church, the local political scene was also becoming evil.

And that should be no surprise, since evil — once embraced — washes over every wall and knows no borders. As we said, evil is never compartmentalized. The same lies that were allowed to penetrate into the heart and life of the Church also penetrated into the heart and life of the people, specifically in the body politic.

It can be no surprise that the evil playing out in the Wayne County vote and Detroit’s cheating politics is so strong and omnipresent because it first found its origins in the local Church.

Once the guardian of truth — the Catholic Church — gives up the ghost, as happened here in Detroit, then there is no remaining firewall to protect and safeguard the innocent, and the entire populace becomes infected, as has happened.

One very plausible explanation for the evil (and, for the record, lying and cheating and threatening people with their lives because of their politics is evil) is the evil that still grips the local Church.

This archdiocese, which Vigneron is successfully busting down to a mere shadow of its former self, is still awash in the sins of impurity and lying, as manifest in the person of the archbishop himself and his inside counselors.

Vigneron and his archdiocese are currently involved in covering up a case of homosexual harassment by one of their employees against at least one young man. And as disturbing as it will be to the archdiocese — yes, Church Militant knows the identity of the offending employee, his place of employment and his closeness to Vigneron.

For the sake of the privacy of the victim, we are not revealing the employee’s name, at least not yet. But rest assured, we know. When people are involved in a cover-up, some people talk Your Excellency — people talk. In fact, very few people around you actually trust you anymore.

But more to the point, the archbishop not only knows about the homosexual harassment by one of his employees, he also knows the employee is actively gay and living with his gay lover.

When a local priest was told of all this, Fr. Michael Suhy of Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth, he pursued it for the sake of the victim and his family. But his whistleblowing and pursuit of truth got him in hot water, and a week or so ago, he was relieved of his duties by the archbishop under the bogus claim that he was “overwhelmed with his duties as pastor.”

The archdiocese denies any knowledge of homosexual predation by one of its employees, and well, of course it does. Just like it denies any knowledge of a vendetta against Fr. Eduard Perrone, with Msgr. Michael Bugarin fabricating charges of sodomy against him to get him removed.

And yes, in case you’re wondering, Bugarin is the man behind this clerical hit job as well. Nothing has changed in Detroit since the days of Dearden, and why would it? Personnel, after all, is policy.

The people running the show are Dearden’s prototypes — raised by him to have a view of the world where the Church is something other than Her divine charter suggests. So as evil engulfed the Church here and took it over, the same happened in the other areas of daily life, manifest at this current moment by the political underhandedness going on.

There is much in need of purging in Detroit as well as the rest of the country, but it must begin in the Church, without retreating from the public sphere. The evil is the same, just manifesting in different ways depending on the specific stage.

But it is all evil. And to think — it all started right here in Detroit, an archdiocese that had at one time nearly 500 parishes but that will soon have roughly 70! And it’s the same on the political scene, an area where the little man came to find employment in the burgeoning auto industry to better his family and improve his lot. At the same time the Church began collapsing, so too did the political structure, each supposedly protecting him.

Evil never stays isolated. Until it is beaten back, it continues to spread and destroy everything in its path.

Five heavy items on how the November 3rd election was rigged for Biden

COVID: How Democrats are Slowly, but Surely, Forcing Americans to ‘Submit’

“In a country where the sole employer is the State, opposition means death by slow starvation. The old principle: who does not work shall not eat, has been replaced by a new one: who does not obey shall not eat.” ― Leon Trotsky


QUESTION: Are the policies of Democrats slowly starving Americans to death?

This question may seem absurd at first but while I was doing research on how many counties each presidential candidate won in 2016 and 2020 I now believe this is a valid question. The Trump administration is all about creating jobs. But are Democrats all about using Covid to kill jobs? As William Shakespeare wrote,

“To be, or not to be: that is the question

Do Democrats want those who voted for and continue to support President Donald J. Trump to be, or not to be.

Should Americans do what Shakespeare suggested:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them?

Outrageous Fortune

If you live in a state controlled by Democrats you may be suffering from outrageous fortune. Or even worse, losing your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Here is what I found and it was was both shocking and revealing. During the 2020 election Democrats won the votes in 6.41% (or 477) of the 3,061 counties in America. Donald Trump won the vote in 2,497 counties. But the issue is that 70% of the wealth, and therefore the economic power in America, is concentrated in this 6.41%.

I found a Brookings Institute column by Mark MuroEli Byerly DukeYang You, and Robert Maxim titled Biden-voting counties equal 70% of America’s economy. What does this mean for the nation’s political-economic divide?

Here’s the Brooking Institute chart contained in the column:

TABLE 1. CANDIDATES’ COUNTIES WON AND SHARE OF GDP IN 2016 AND 2020

Year Candidate Counties won Total votes Aggregate share of US GDP
2016 Hillary Clinton 472 65,853,625 64%
Donald Trump 2,584 62,985,106 36%
2020 Joe Biden 477 75,602,458 70%
Donald Trump 2,497 71,216,709 29%

Note: 2020 figures reflect unofficial results from 96% of counties

As Mark MuroEli Byerly DukeYang You, and Robert Maxim from the Brookings Institute note:

Biden’s winning base in 477 counties encompasses fully 70% of America’s economic activity, while Trump’s losing base of 2,497 counties represents just 29% of the economy. [See the Brookings chart here]

The State’s Take Over of American Jobs under Democrat Rule

The Democrats have said that their goal is to take over large portions of the American economy. The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) was an initial effort to control not only the health insurance of millions of Americans, but also designed to take total control of the insurance industry, and thereby control how medicine is practiced by doctors.

Fast forward to today and the real possibility of programs like the Green New Deal would become a reality. In September, 2019 the 98 member Democratic Congressional Progressive Caucus (which includes the four members of The Squad) sent out an email titled, “Read what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Pramila Jayapal just said.” Here is the content of the email:

Scientists estimate that we only have 12 YEARS until the effects of climate change become IRREVERSIBLE. We have to act, now!

That’s why Progressive Caucus members like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Pramila Jayapal are speaking out:

We must pass bold initiatives, like a Green New Deal, if we want to stop climate change in its tracks.

But we can’t do that unless we elect a wave of pro-environment Progressives who will fight to keep our planet habitable for future generations.

Should the Green New Deal become law then all aspects of the U.S. economy would be controlled by the state.

Why do Democrats support lockdowns?

Today we now understand why Biden and the Democrats are pushing lockdowns, even from people celebrating Thanksgiving. The intent is to punish small business owners and the working class who have supported President Trump. Covid has become the Democrats weapon of choice used to destroy the working class! Lockdowns harm most of all those who work in “traditional” industries like hospitality (hotels, motels) restaurants, SalonSpaBoutiques,  small family owned businesses, construction, services companies (e.g. plumbing HI-VAC, electrical, etc.) and manufacturing and factories.

Who benefits from lockdowns? Who benefits from small businesses shutting down and going bankrupt? Why big corporations and the rich companies like Apple, Amazon, Walmart, Target, Big Tech and, of course, Communist China. When small businesses close and factories move off shore China wins!

Conclusion.

As Leon Trotsky warned when the state becomes the sole employer you must obey. Today, lockdowns are being used across America by Democrat politicians to decide which employees can or can’t work. Working Americans are finding it hard to keep their jobs. Family owned small businesses are struggling to keep their doors open. People are forced into wearing face masks, even though study after study says that face masks do no stop Covid.

Control the jobs and you control the people. Making American people wear face masks even in their own homes, under penalty of law, and you control how they fundamentally live. The Democrats are constantly sending out emails asking if there should be a “national mask mandate.” What they are really asking is you to voluntarily “submit to the state.”

Using their weapon of choice, Covid, the Democrats, in states like New York, Michigan and California, have taken total control of their citizens and their jobs. Trotsky would be proud to see that in certain parts of America there are those who if they do not obey will not eat. And if they do not obey and wear a face mask they will not work. Literally.

SUBMIT! Or else!

Or, should Americans “take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them?”

Rules for Revolutionaries: Understanding the transformative events that are reshaping America

“All civilization has from time to time become a thin crust over a volcano of revolution.” – Havelock Ellis


Ever since the horrific death of George Floyd, events seem to be spiraling out of control. The American public is being bombarded, almost on a daily basis with reports of large protests in major cities; accompanied by rioting, looting, burning, assaults, and even murders.

Observing these events unfold, the average U.S. citizen watching tv from the purported safety of their home, might seem bewildered by these transformative events, the purpose of which is nothing less than a “re-imagining” of America. In order to better understand exactly what is happening, it is necessary to take a cue from the Revolutionary Handbook. There are approximately ten rules; which if you know and understand them, will help the reader to comprehend what is happening.

#1: Inertia is fatal to a Revolutionary Movement.

“The way to be nothing is to do nothing.” – Ed Howe

What does a great white shark have in common with a Revolutionary Movement? Both must continue to move forward or die. Those of you old enough to remember, might recall what was happening in the late 1960’s. The overtures of that movement are eerily similar to what is happening today. The problem was that back then, the revolution was centered around the anti-Vietnam War Movement. Once peace came, the impetus of the revolution died out.

In more modern times we had the Occupy Wall St Movement after the 2008 financial debacle. Protesters occupied an area of downtown Manhattan in close proximity to Wall Street. The civil authorities initially left them alone as long as there was no rioting or wanton destruction. However, as reports of widespread drug abuse began to trickle in, coupled with accusations of rape; the authorities had to act and cleared them out. Many of the occupiers had already left, not out of a lack of revolutionary zeal, but for another cogent reason; it was getting cold outside. Apparently, the winter months are not conducive to this type of protest.

#2: Do not identify your ideology by name; nor state exactly what you will do after you are in power.

Speak only in vague generalities and use simple 2 or 3 word phrases the public can identify with.

“Generalizations are generally wrong.” – Mary Wortley Montagu

Most Americans are fair-minded by nature and want to do the right thing. Terms such as Socialist, Communist or Marxist generally have a negative connotation and would not be well received by the populace at large. Do not look to antagonize them any more than is necessary. The revolution will need its army of “useful idiots” for the future. Instead, use terms such as “progressive” or “social justice warrior” to describe one’s self. Other terms, such as “environmental justice,” “racial/income inequality,” “redistribution of wealth,” “globalism,” ‘undocumented worker,” and “reimagine the police” are also useful. These are far less threatening to the average American. When Fidel Castro ousted the unpopular dictator Batista, Castro initially identified himself as a “humanist.” Only after he felt safe and secure in his new position did he announce to the world: “I am a Marxist Leninist.”

#3: The revolution must get control over mass media and the education system.

“Our educational policy must enable everyone who receives an education to develop morally, intellectually, and physically and become a worker with both socialist consciousness and culture.” – Mao Tse Tung

It is a historic fact that once in power every single Communist or Fascist dictatorship closed down ALL oppositional voices. Truth is defined by whatever the revolution says it is, and anyone who dare speak out is immediately silenced. The only information that is heard and taught is that which advances the revolutionary cause. This was true in Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. It is just as true today in Communist China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela. This point cannot be stressed enough. Once the revolution gains control over mass media, it controls ALL the information that is disseminated, and once the revolution gains control over the education system, it controls the future. Currently, we are seeing big tech, mainstream media, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and academia censor and suppress free speech.

#4: All the apparatus of the state: the ministries, the civil service, the justice system, the military, and law enforcement must be brought under control.

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” – George Orwell, 1984

This rule is simple to understand. Whatever the revolution cannot control could eventually be used against it. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all dealt with the problem of supposed anti-revolutionary activists by instituting a series of purges aimed at crushing ALL potential opposition, which even extended to family members. Stalin himself is alleged to have remarked, that it was fine if innocents were punished along with the guilty, because “that sends an even stronger message.”

#5: All vestiges of the old must be destroyed in order to build anew. This includes all history, traditions, culture, and iconography that cannot be made to conform to the new ideals.

“Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.” – George Orwell, 1984

In the late 1950’s, Mao unleashed the cultural revolution on China. It was based on a repudiation of what Mao called the “four olds”: old ideas, old customs, old habits, and old culture. Estimates vary as to the number of people killed but it was most certainly in the millions. Coming as it did after the disastrous policies of the “Great Leap Forward,” it left China an economic and cultural wasteland.

#6: Conventional ideas about religion and family are an anathema to a Revolutionary Movement.

“The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion.” – Karl Marx

“We have created a child who will be so exposed to the media that he will be lost to his parents by the time he is 12.” – David Bowie

Absolute loyalty to the revolution must come first. This extends even to members of one’s own family. Children are encouraged to inform on their own parents if they hear anything that can be interpreted as “counter-revolutionary; organized religion must also go. The revolution cannot have loyalty to God supersede loyalty to the state.

#7: The revolution can only succeed in times of extreme economic, political, and social unrest.

“Everything under heaven is in utter chaos. The situation is excellent.” – Mao Tse Tung

This is a very important point. A generally content, gainfully employed, and prosperous populace is not likely to support a revolutionary movement aimed at overthrowing the government, party or individual that has provided them with these benefits. In order for the revolution to be successful the population must be brought low and kept in a state of abject misery. Years ago, former White House Chief of Staff and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel stated: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Recently, activist/actress Jane Fonda brought this concept up to modern times when she noted: “Covid is God’s gift to the left.”

#8: Ultimate victory in the revolution will go to that segment of the revolutionary body that is the best organized, best financed, and most ideologically dedicated.

“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution, one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.” – George Orwell

A revolutionary movement can be composed of a number of seemingly divergent groups; each of which has a peeve with the central government. In our own country we have among others, minorities, LGBTQ, and feminists all rubbing shoulders with idealists, liberals, socialists, anarchists, libertarians, Islamists, and hardcore Marxist revolutionaries. The last group is unquestionably the best organized and funded. They are completely devoted to the “righteousness” of their ideology and even have their own para-military group – Antifa. Their ultimate goal is the complete destruction of the American political and economic system. They will settle for nothing less than total and complete power, which they will use to impose their will on ALL aspects of life. The second best organized and funded revolutionary group are the Islamists. Marxism and Islamism are in an “alliance of convenience,” and for now, intersectionality is in both of their best interests; until the revolution succeeds in overthrowing the system. In the end, they have nothing in common; least of which is religion.

#9: A majority of popular support is not needed in order to force your will on an entire population.

“A minority may be right; a majority is always wrong.” – Henrik Ibsen

This is often the most difficult point for the lay person to grasp. Most people automatically assume that any revolution must have popular support in order to succeed. This may have been true in some cases, but not all. People might be unaware that in 1917 there were two Russian revolutions. The first in Feb/March, did away with the Czar; establishing a provisional government. The second in Oct/Nov, did away with the provisional government and established a Communist regime that lasted for the next 73 years. The provisional government made the mistake of keeping Russia in the first world war; a source of widespread dissatisfaction among the people (See Rule #7). The Bolsheviks then swept into power with a simple slogan: “Peace, Land, Bread.” Although one cannot be certain of the number of hardcore committed Communists among the masses of disaffected citizenry in the Oct/Nov revolution, their numbers would have been comparatively small. It is interesting to speculate that had the provisional government headed by Alexander Kerensky managed to extricate Russia from WWI, whether or not the November 1917 Communist Revolution would have succeeded.

#10: After victory, the revolution will turn in directions not initially anticipated. Once the revolutionary genie is let out of the bottle, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to control events as they transpire.

“All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” – George Orwell, Animal Farm

In addition to exacting revenge on their opponents, revolutions usually turn on many of the very people who were its most ardent supporters. One only has to look at Hitler’s “Night of the Long Knives,” Stalin’s “Gulag Archipelago, and Mao’s “Cultural Revolution, for examples. French revolutionary, Pierre Vergniaud, best expressed this idea when he noted, “There was reason to fear that the revolution, like Saturn, might devour in turn, each one of her children.” Revolutionaries also speak in lofty terms about “justice and equality,” promising a true “classless” society, but in reality, wind up creating an entirely new class of elites based on party loyalty and affiliation.

Here then are the Rules for Revolutionaries. Hopefully, they will enable the reader to have a better understanding of what is happening in the America of today. One important point is that regardless of who is in the White House, what is happening on the streets will not stop (See Rule #1). The radical left is already looking to extract major concessions from the incoming Biden administration. They want something for their support and if they don’t get it, are prepared to take to the streets. That will leave the new administration with two choices. Either put down the insurrection by the use of force; or by appeasement: offering bribes and concessions in the hope they will be placated. The problem with the latter approach is that appeasement as policy generally does not work and only prolongs the inevitable confrontation.

Winston Churchill summed it up best when he said,

“An appeaser is someone who feeds a crocodile in the hope it will eat him last.”

Where then does this leave us as a nation? There is no doubt that as a society we have made enormous strides in the last half century, yet we are still struggling to come to grips with our past. Sixty years ago, the election of an African-American with the unlikely name of Barack Hussein Obama to the highest office of the land would have been impossible. So too, the election of a number of minorities and women to seats in the House, Senate, and even the new VP Elect. We now have a large and expanding Black and Hispanic middle class and women have made their mark on the boards of some of the largest corporations.

Do we now throw all that away and adopt the failed economic and political system of our former Cold War adversaries? There is NO perfect economic or political system, but there are systems that generally work better for more people than others. As imperfect as it is, Capitalism works better than Communism. Capitalist systems encourage innovation, individualism, personal responsibility, and independence. Marxist systems mandate conformity of ideas, conformity of thought, conformity of belief, and conformity of speech. Whatever our many problems, a revolution aimed at the overthrow of the entire system is not the answer.

Neo-Marxist ideologues in the U.S. would disagree with this conclusion. They will continue to extol the virtues of the Cuban, Venezuelan, and Chinese systems, but they themselves recoil at the suggestion that they relocate there. When confronted with the fact that at its height, more than 60% of the world embraced that system; that it failed everywhere, they invariably say something to the effect that “We’ll get it right this time.” As always, they admit nothing, deny everything, make counter charges, and in the final analysis: double down on their ideology.

As for the revolution itself, George Bernard Shaw probably stated it best when he wrote:

“Revolutions have never lightened the burden of tyranny; they have only shifted it to another shoulder.”

Why President Trump Will Win

Why Trump Will Win

“Absolutely frightening” evidence of entrenched fraud.

By: Joseph Hippolito, FPM, Wed Nov 25, 2020

During his campaign rallies, President Donald Trump proclaimed, “We got ’em all” or “We have it all!” In the coming weeks — if not days — Americans will find out specifically what he means.
Those specifics promise to shake Americans to their core by revealing years of entrenched political corruption reflected in electoral fraud.

Lawyer Sidney Powell is providing a preview. Powell, who apparently had been helping Trump’s legal team prepare a case against alleged election fraud, told Howie Carr, a conservative radio host in Boston, on Friday:

“We’ve got a number of smoking guns — and we may have to get witness protection for some of them. We have a lot of extremely solid evidence. It’s beyond impressive and absolutely terrifying.”

Among those smoking guns:
  • Hillary Clinton used fraud to steal California’s Democratic Presidential primary four years ago from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. “When people told him about it,” Powell said, “instead of exposing it, he sold out.”
  • An employee of the Defense Department, in a conference call that included Sanders and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told government officials how to commit sabotage in their respective offices. “There were a couple of hundred people on that call,” Powell said.
  • China, Iran, Serbia and Liechtenstein played key roles in interfering with the Presidential election.

On Saturday night in an interview with Newsmax, Powell mentioned:

  • Each Democratic candidate in Pennsylvania received 35,000 extra votes. “I would be willing to bet it happened everywhere,” Powell said.
  • States recalibrated voting machines after deadlines for modification passed.
  • Machines awarded a value of 1.25 for each vote former Vice President Joe Biden received but calculated every Trump vote at only .75. “You can see the reports of fractional numbers for the votes.” Powell said.
  • A former Venezuelan military officer who helped develop the machines testified they could be manipulated. “He knew as soon as the machines were turned off in those key states,” Powell said, that massive support for Trump “had broken the algorithm that had been programmed. So they had to stop counting and backfill the vote with fraudulent mail-in ballots or whatever means they used.”

This same officer, Powell told Fox’s Lou Dobbs on Nov. 16, “was personally in briefings when all of this was discussed and planned, beginning with Hugo Chavez, how it was designed there and then saw it happening in this country.” (Emphasis added)
Powell — who filed a lawsuit challenging Georgia’s tabulation Wednesday — continues to receive severe criticism and ridicule, even accusations of lying. But Powell is subject to the same laws against libel and slander as any other American.
If her assertions against Clinton, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, for starters, were found to show malicious disregard for the truth, an ensuing conviction would destroy her reputation and career.

“Sidney Powell is a serious lawyer. She is not going to make a false claim. Period,” said Larry Johnson, a counter-terrorism specialist who spent four years in the State Department and 22 years devising anti-terrorism exercises for military special operations.
Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani, one if Trump’s main attorneys, issued this statement Sunday:
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

Powell corroborated that release with her own:

“I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.
“My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may — whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.”
Trump’s team is filing civil cases. Powell approaches the allegations of electoral fraud as a criminal matter.
“We’re pursuing two different theories,” Giuliani told Dobbs on Monday night. Trump’s team is concentrating on “misconduct of the election by state officials in at least five or six different states” involving “the deprivation of Constitutional rights for the President,” Giuliani said.

So how does Powell know what she knows? As she told Dobbs, “I’m going to release the Kraken.”
In this case, “Kraken” is not a mythical sea monster but a program the CIA and Defense Department use to get information about the nation’s enemies by hacking computers and cellphones.

The program includes various forms of malware, such as viruses, Trojan horses and remote-control systems — and even was used against ostensible allies.

In 2017, WikiLeaks released numerous CIA documents detailing “Kraken.” They included orders to spy on all major candidates in France’s 2012 presidential election, including the incumbent at the time, Nicholas Sarkozy. “Kraken” would provide information on each party’s election strategy and each candidate’s private conferences and ability to influence political decisions.
The CIA uses another program in conjunction with “Kraken,” called “Hammer” (or “Hamr” in the files WikiLeaks released), which Powell referenced. “Hamr” spies on protected networks without being detected.

Numerous plugins accompany “Hamr” to enhance its effectiveness. One, “AngerManagement,” targets Android devices. Another, “WildTurkey,” tests and refines its capabilities.

If WikiLeaks made CIA documents available to the public, Powell surely could access them and use specialists to translate the code and jargon.

After Powell spoke with Dobbs, reports began circulating about an American military operation conducted to take servers in Germany. At first, many thought the servers belonged to two election technology firms, Dominion and Scytl. Dominion — founded by Venezuelans — manufactured the questionable voting machines used in this month’s election.

But those servers apparently belong to the CIA, which has a field office in Frankfurt. The State Department also operates a consulate in that city.

“The U.S. military has full authority to do this because any CIA activity in the European theater is being conducted using military cover,” Johnson said. “In other words, CIA officers would be identified to the German government (and anyone else asking) as military employees or consultants.
“Such an operation would have been carried out with U.S. law enforcement present to take custody of the evidence. That means that the evidence will be under the control of the Department of Justice through U.S. Attorneys and can be used in court or other judicial proceedings.”
Neither CIA Director Gina Haspel nor FBI Director Christopher Wray knew about the operation, Johnson added.

Since Dominion owns servers in Germany and Scytl operates them in Spain — servers that received raw election data — “Kraken” could be used to manipulate that data.

If Powell does not represent Trump directly, she works in tandem with his legal team. If so, Trump would have the authority to declassify any information Powell could use.
Such a scenario would explain these comments Powell made to Carr:

“You have to realize how many forces — including many in the government — have benefited from this system. They knew it worked the way it worked, and they used it to install the people they wanted to install in particular offices.

“I think the fraud in the election goes much farther than the president. I think they did it to any particularly strong Republican candidate this time around.”

In other words, the United States faces its biggest political and existential crisis since the Civil War — if not in its history.

Sidney Powell sues Michigan and Georgia officials, alleging massive scheme to rig election for Joe Biden

Excerpt from Sidney Powell lawsuit,

“As explained and demonstrated in the accompanying redacted declaration of a former electronic intelligence analyst under 305th Military Intelligence with experience gathering SAM missile system electronic intelligence, the Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran in order to monitor and manipulated elections, including the most recent US General election in 2020.” [Emphasis added]


Sidney Powell on Wednesday night made public two law suits alleging fraud.  One challenged the governor and election officials in GOP-run Georgia. And the second suit targeted the governor and officials in Michigan. Powell’s suits both claimed that the election had been ‘rigged’ to favor Joe Biden.

Sidney Powell sues Georgia officials, alleging massive scheme to rig election for Joe Biden

Prominent defense lawyer says scheme centered around modern ‘ballot stuffing’ hidden by voter machine algorithms.

By John Solomon, Just the News, November 25, 2020;

Prominent defense attorney Sidney Powell sued Georgia’s top officials late Wednesday, alleging in federal court that the GOP-run state government permitted a massive voter fraud scheme that rigged the Nov. 3 election in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta on behalf of several Georgia residents, electors and Republican Party officials and named Gov. Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and state election board members as defendants.

The 104-page complaint asked the court to issue an injunction “prohibiting the Governor and Secretary of State from transmitting the currently certified results to the Electoral College based on the overwhelming evidence of election tampering.”

“The fraud was executed by many means, but the most fundamentally troubling, insidious, and egregious is the systemic adaptation of old-fashioned ‘ballot-stuffing,’” Powell’s suit alleged. “It has now been amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors for that very purpose. Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia.

“This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and ‘rigged’ the election in Georgia for Joe Biden,” the suit added.

Powell’s suit made a variety of allegations, including that:

  • At least 96,600 absentee ballots were requested and counted but were never recorded as being returned to county election boards by the voter. “Thus, at a minimum, 96,600 votes must be disregarded,” the suit said.
  • Kemp and Raffensperger “rushed through the purchase of Dominion voting machines and software in 2019 for the 2020 Presidential Election” without due diligence and disregarded safety concerns.
  • “There is incontrovertible physical evidence that the standards of physical security of the voting machines and the software were breached, and machines were connected to the internet in violation of professional standards and state and federal laws.”
  • Fulton County election workers used a claim of a water leak to evacuate poll watchers and workers for several hours on Election night, even as “several election workers remained unsupervised and unchallenged working at the computers for the voting tabulation machines until after 1:00 AM.
  • State officials in a settlement with Democratic parties made changes to election procedures that violated both state law and the U.S. Constitution.

The suit asked for more than a dozen remedies including an injunction blocking the state’s certified results showing Biden as winning by 12,000 votes from being sent to the Electoral College, an audit where signatures are matched, the impounding of election machines, and the securing of video surveillance tapes from vote-counting settings.

The suit was filed the same day Powell’s high profile client, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, was granted a full pardon by President Trump in the Russia case.

Georgia officials have repeatedly denied wrongdoing and said they are confident in the final tallies of votes after an audit last week.

Twitter Blocks Links to Sidney Powell Election Lawsuit

As soon as Sidney Powell filed her election fraud lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan. Twitter banned her WEBSITE fro Twitter rendering her links dead. This is the hallmark of totalitarianism.

Breitbart: Twitter is blocking users from sharing links to lawyer Sidney Powell’s lawsuit relating to widespread voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election.

A number of users across Twitter have reported being unable to share links to lawyer Sidney Powell’s lawsuit relating to voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election. When attempting to share the link to the document, users receive a notification stating that the link has been identified as “potentially harmful.”

Twitter’s policy on blocking links states: “At times, Twitter will take action to limit or prevent the spread of URL links to content outside Twitter. This is done by displaying a warning notice when the link is clicked, or by blocking the link so that it can’t be Tweeted at all.”

The platform describes the categories of links it will block:

  • Malicious links such as malware and phishing
  • Spammy and misdirecting links
  • Links that break Twitter rules on such topics as terrorism, child sexual exploitation, illegal goods, hateful conduct, violence, etc.
  • Hacked Materials

Twitter also claims it will block links that include “Content that interferes with civic and election integrity.” The example given in this category is: “Misleading information about how to vote or register to vote.” It is not yet clear if Twitter is justifying its censorship of a filed lawsuit based on this policy.

Some users have since tweeted about the situation:

Powell’s lawsuit makes a number of claims about voter fraud in multiple states, discussing Georgia the lawsuit says:

Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia. Especially egregious conduct arose in Forsyth, Paulding, Cherokee, Hall, and Barrow County. This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and “rigged” the election in Georgia for Joe Biden.

[ … ]

[V]ideo from the State Farm Arena in Fulton County shows that on November 3rd after the polls closed, election workers falsely claimed a water leak required the facility to close. All poll workers and challengers were evacuated for several hours at about 10:00 PM. However, several election workers remained unsupervised and unchallenged working at the computers for the voting tabulation machines until after 1:00 AM.

Proof that Biden/Democrats represent the rich and elite and Trump/Republicans represent the working class

I was doing research on how many counties each presidential candidate won in 2016 and 2020. What I found was both shocking and very revealing.

The Data

I came across the below chart in a Brookings Institute column by Mark MuroEli Byerly DukeYang You, and Robert Maxim titled Biden-voting counties equal 70% of America’s economy. What does this mean for the nation’s political-economic divide?

Here’s the Brooking Institute chart:

Table 1. Candidates’ counties won and share of GDP in 2016 and 2020

Year Candidate Counties won Total votes Aggregate share of US GDP
2016 Hillary Clinton 472 65,853,625 64%
Donald Trump 2,584 62,985,106 36%
2020 Joe Biden 477 75,602,458 70%
Donald Trump 2,497 71,216,709 29%

Note: 2020 figures reflect unofficial results from 96% of counties

As Mark MuroEli Byerly DukeYang You, and Robert Maxim from the Brookings Institute note:

Biden’s winning base in 477 counties encompasses fully 70% of America’s economic activity, while Trump’s losing base of 2,497 counties represents just 29% of the economy. [See the Brookings chart here]

[ … ]

In short, 2020’s map continues to reflect a striking split between the large, dense, metropolitan counties that voted Democratic and the mostly exurban, small-town, or rural counties that voted Republican.  Blue and red America reflect two very different economies: one oriented to diverse, often college-educated workers in professional and digital services occupations, and the other whiter, less-educated, and more dependent on “traditional” industries.

Who do Democrats and Republicans really represent?

What struck me are two facts:

  1. Hillary, Biden and Democrats are supported by the rich and powerful.
  2. Trump and Republicans are supported by the working middle and lower class.

Another thing struck me. The numbers provided by the Brookings Institute, given the number of counties that voted for Biden,  supports the idea that only 472 counties provided an overwhelming number of votes. As a matter of fact nearly 10 million more than in 2016!

These numbers support the election fraud argument. Many are questioning how did Biden gain nearly 10 million votes over Hillary by hiding in his basement?

While Democrats say they represent the ordinary American this data throws that idea out of the proverbial window. It’s statically proven to be a big lie. Democrats mantra is to tax the rich, when in fact it’s the rich who put them into office. Another big lie. You don’t bite the hand that feeds your PAC.

On the other hand it proves that the base of the MAGA movement is truly founded upon the working class, especially those who are not rich and famous.

Democrats are controlled by those who control 70% of America’s economic activity. This wealth and power comes from places like Los Angles, CA, New York, New York, Cook County, IL, Harris, TX and Santa Clara, CA. [See chart here]

Republicans are supported by many many economically smaller counties. [See chart here]

Why do Democrats support lockdowns?

Now we understand why Biden and the Democrats are pushing lockdowns. The intent is to punish small business owners and the working class who have supported President Trump. Covid has become the Democrats weapon of choice used to destroy the working class! Lockdowns harm most of all those who work in “traditional” industries like hospitality (hotels, motels) restaurants, SalonSpaBoutiques,  small family owned businesses, construction, services companies (e.g. plumbing HI-VAC, electrical, etc.) and manufacturing and factories.

Who benefits from lockdowns? Who benefits from small businesses shutting down and going bankrupt? Why big corporations and the rich companies like Apple, Amazon, Walmart, Target, Big Tech and, of course, Communist China. When small businesses close and factories move off shore China wins!

Does this all now make sense to you?

Conclusion 

President Trump is fighting for ordinary Americans. Those who work for a living.

President Trump is fighting not only the media and the Democrats but also the rich and powerful.

Biden and the Democrats are absolutely dependent upon the largesse of the rich and powerful and those who vote for a living, i.e. the swamp.

America: ‘A Church Relocation Project?’

There is a war on history in our time. There is an all-out effort to cut us off from our past— presumably to make us into a nation in the image of what the Left wants.

For example, Thanksgiving would seem to be as American as apple pie. But an article last week (11/17/20) in the New York Times refers to the “myth” of Thanksgiving.

The so-called “paper of record” quotes a Native-American historian, Linda Coombs, of the Wampanoag Tribe (of New England). She writes about the first Thanksgiving: “There was an event that happened in 1621….But the whole story about what occurred on that first Thanksgiving was a myth created to make white people feel comfortable.” In effect, the article blames the Pilgrims for what others did long after them.

Amazing. The Pilgrims, who settled Plymouth, Massachusetts, had a stellar reputation with the Indians. They made a treaty of peace that lasted half a century.

Rev. Billy Falling, a Native-American pastor and author, told me:

“The Pilgrims had good relationships with the Indians….As a Native-American, I thank God for the Europeans that brought us… the Gospel and brought Western Civilization.”

Obviously, terrible, inexcusable things happened to Indians, long after the Pilgrims, at the hands of other European settlers and Americans. But in doing injustice to Native Americans, they were not at all following the Christian example of the Pilgrims.

Meanwhile, this month is the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims coming to these shores—a milestone in history.

Pastor, broadcaster, and author Dr. D. James Kennedy once observed that America began as “a church relocation project.” His comment is profound—inasmuch as the Pilgrims who settled Plymouth four centuries ago founded America.

The church relocation was from mid-England to Holland to America.

The Pilgrims were one particular congregation that was born in the Midlands of England, in the sleepy village of Scrooby, about 150 miles north of London.

The Bible was beginning to be read by many in England for the first time, and it caused an unexpected reaction. As people compared the New Testament with what they were seeing in practice in the official Church of England, they felt there was a need for positive changes.

A large group of those wanting reform within the Church of England, which was Protestant in its theology bur Roman Catholic in its liturgy, worked for the purity of the Church. They were derisively called Puritans.

A very small subset of Puritans were Separatists. They thought reform within the Church was hopeless, so they created small, secret congregations of believers, separate from the Church of England—which was illegal at the time.

The Pilgrims were one particular congregation of Separatists that was born in mid-England around 1606 during the time when Separatist church meetings were illegal. Their goal was to worship Jesus in the purity of the gospel as they understood it. The Bible (the Geneva version) was the focus of their existence.

Because of persecution in England, they decided to emigrate to Holland, where they stayed for more than a decade. But they could see, over time, their church slowly dissipating. So they wanted to come to America to more fully practice their faith.

In the 66-day voyage of the Mayflower, they were blown off course and ended up under no government’s jurisdiction. To bind the colony together, they wrote an agreement for self-government, under God. It was a political covenant based on the Biblical model of covenant.

In this document, the Mayflower Compact, which was written “in the name of God” and in which they stated that they came “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith,” they created a “civil body politic.”

Historians tell us that the Mayflower Compact was a key forerunner to the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. These in turn have led to a great deal of freedom for hundreds of millions of people to enjoy.

I once interviewed Dennis Prager of PragerU about America’s Judeo-Christian roots. He told me, “The Pilgrims founded America, for all intents and purposes.”

The great leader of the Pilgrims, William Bradford, wrote of the whole Pilgrim experience:

“Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by His hand that made all things of nothing, and gives being to all things that are: and, as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation: let the glorious name of Jehovah have all the praise.”

As Americans, we do indeed have many reasons for celebrating thanksgiving to God for our freedom—notwithstanding attempts from the New York Times to distort our history. And it all began 400 years ago from this time. Not bad for a church relocation project.
