Why owning a Firearm is not just a Constitutional Right — It is a God-given Right

Over the last few weeks, there has been a firestorm of controversy about guns in the USA.  Now let’s just forget about the Second Amendment for now.  Let’s just forget about the Constitution as a whole, for a second.

I know what many of you are saying the whole reason we have guns is because of the Constitution, but I am here to tell you that is not true.  In fact, the very notion that it is written in the Constitution that we can have guns is exactly what puts that protected right in danger.

Of course, I do not advocate changing or getting rid of that amendment because it needs to stay and it needs to stay as it is written. However, travel down the road of logic with me for a moment.  You and I are children of God right?  Oh, you do not believe in God?  OK, then you are a child of Mother Earth.  Frankly it does not matter what God you believe in because you are a child of that deity.

With that, you and I are born with certain inalienable rights.  In other words, you and I are born with the right to live. Now in order to live, you must have the same inalienable right to protect and preserve your life.  Of course, that right does not need to come at the expense of someone else’s identical rights unless that person is actively trying to extinguish your right to live.

When someone else is trying to violate your right to live, then you have a right to protect that deity given life by any means necessary.  That means you have the deity given right to have a weapon of your choice in order to protect your deity given right to life.  That weapon could be the human invention called a firearm.

We know for certain with data and facts that guns are not the major cause of death in this country or any other nation.  If you want to talk about governments killing their own people with guns, well that is another topic. But when it comes to crime guns are not the biggest threat to that life right. Today more people are killed using knives or from medical malpractice/mistakes, drug over doses, abortion, and automobile accidents.

Yet I do not see or hear anyone calling for tighter control over knives.  I don’t see or hear the left bringing stricter rules and laws governing abortions.  I don’t hear or see anyone trying to ban automobiles and I don’t hear or see anyone on the left limiting medical treatment in order to prevent malpractice or mistakes.  In fact, when it comes to that last one, the left want even more medical malpractice/mistakes because they are requiring everyone to have some kind of medical coverage or insurance.

You see, you have a deity given right to protect your own life.  And you have a right to use any weapon available to you in order to achieve that right when someone tries to violate that right by ending your life prematurely.

This has nothing to do with the Constitution.  However, the Founders knew this and figured if they did not put this inalienable right down on paper that the government would try to eliminate your inalienable right to life.

Make no mistake about it I am a full advocate of gun ownership by individuals not only in this country but in every country all over the world.  And the very fact that you have Liberals and Leftists who want to take away your deity given right to protect your own life, should give us all pause.

Keep in mind that not a single new proposed law or existing law would have prevented the latest mass shootings anywhere in the country.  So you have to ask if existing laws and newly proposed laws would not have prevented the horrific crimes, what exactly is the plan?

Make no mistake about it, when these new laws are enacted and don’t work to prevent these same crimes, the left will push to change, eliminate the second Amendment, and then move to ban all guns for individuals because that is their end game .

They want to control your right to life.  Mostly because they, on the left, do not believe you have a right to live because they believe they have the right to choose who lives and who does not live. And this is why the ability to own a firearm is not just a Constitutional right, it is a deity given right.  It is a God-given right.

Don’t doubt me.

VIDEO: Illegal Alien ‘Anchor Babies’ Informertial launched

LOS ANGELES /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) will air a new TV commercial tomorrow night in CNN’s first Democratic Presidential debate.  The commercial is scheduled to air multiple times in the debate across major markets in Iowa, South Carolina and California.  The ad is designed to help Americans understand what presidential candidates mean when they reference “anchor babies” and where candidates stand on granting automatic citizenship to anyone born on U.S. soil.

View the CAPS infomercial and see where the candidates stand on anchor babies:

More than 300,000 babies are born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants each year, about 8% of all U.S. births.  Pew Hispanic Research estimates there are 4 million children residing in the U.S. today who were born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants.

Under current policy, when a citizen of another country gives birth to a child on U.S. soil, whether here as a tourist or illegally, the baby automatically gets U.S. citizenship along with taxpayer funded benefits.   And once the baby gets citizenship, the parents eventually become eligible for U.S. citizenship and benefits too.  Then the parents’ extended families can apply for citizenship.   The U.S. and Canada are the only two developed nations that still allow birthright citizenship.

“Why should a citizen of another country who has broken our laws be rewarded with U.S. citizenship and taxpayer benefits for them, their children and their extended family?” asked Jo Wideman, Executive Director of Californians for Population Stabilization. “That’s not fair to those who are following the rules to immigrate here the right way.  And it’s not fair to the American taxpayer either.”

Several Presidential candidates have called for ending birthright citizenship, citing constitutional scholars who say the current policy fundamentally misinterprets the citizenship clause in the 14th amendment.  The Supreme Court has also acknowledged that Congress’s power over naturalization is absolute while judicial power is extremely limited.

France, Germany, Japan, the U.K. and most developed countries around the world ended birthright citizenship decades ago.  It’s time for the U.S. to end it too,” concluded Wideman.

The Primary Difference between President Obama and Donald Trump

Some may argue that the primary difference between President Obama and Donald Trump is leadership. Others might point out the lack of Obama’s business credentials versus the business success of Trump. Still others may point out that President Obama is the consummate politician while Trump is the consummate Renaissance man.

While all of these comparisons have been made none is more important than President Obama’s and Donald Trump’s view of America.

A recent Gallup poll found that 75% think there is wide-spread corruption in Washington, a figure that has been fairly constant since 2010. The American people sense that something is very wrong in Washington and President Obama has been the cause of much of that distrust.

William R. Hawkins in his column Trump’s Campaign Slogan – ‘Make America Great Again’ – Reflects Rise in National Sentiment writes:

It is often said that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. The turn to the Right in America started with a backlash against the disastrous ideas, both social and economic, that came out of the 1960s and reached fruition with the “stagflation” and anarchy of President Jimmy Carter. A new generation has suffered through the painfully slow half-recovery under President Barack Obama. Thus, both the libertarian and democratic-socialist models have failed. This leaves only a genuine conservative model to save the day, if it can find a champion.

That model is strongly nationalistic. It puts rebuilding the American economy first. People must be able to buy property and plan for the future, if they are going to stand on the Right in politics. They must have something to conserve. Capitalism is very productive, but it must be harnessed, if it is to pull society forward.

The major difference between these two men is: Obama is a socialist but not a nationalist, while Trump is a nationalist who is a capitalist.

The classic statement of nationalism comes from French historian Ernst Renan in 1882, “To have had glorious moments in common in the past, a common will in the present, to have done great things together and to wish to do more, those are the essential conditions for a people.”

Wikipedia gives us this definition of American nationalism:

American nationalism is a form of nationalism found in the United States, which asserts that Americans are a nation and that promotes the cultural unity of Americans.

The key words are common will and cultural unity. A united American  is capable of anything, a divided one is incapable of doing everything. Since 2008 citizens have sensed a growing divide in America based upon class, income, race, religion and political affiliation. What Americans yearn for is a United States of America.

Only those who fit these definitions may be called conservatives and be trusted to work for the common good.

Ayn Rand wrote a short nineteen page paper asking: What is the basic issue facing the world today?

Rand, in her paper makes the case that, “The basic issue in the world today is between two principles: Individualism and Collectivism.” Rand defines these two principles as follows:

  • Individualism – Each man exists by his own right and for his own sake, not for the sake of the group.
  • Collectivism – Each man exists only by the permission of the group and for the sake of the group.

President Obama (Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and the Democratic Party) are Collectivists. Donald Trump is an Individualist and is fighting against his own Republican Party, the media and the Democrats to become the first nationalist who embraces capitalism since President Ronald Reagan.

I know, comparisons to Ronald Reagan have become a cliche. But in the case of Trump, he speaks in plain terms to the thirst to make America great again. A great America means a peaceful and more prosperous world. History tells us so.

Perhaps what Donald Trump has brought to the forefront was captured by  Francis Bellamy in 1892 in the Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The Invisible Black Republican

I have been asking and will continue to ask, where are the Black Republicans?  Race will be one of the top issues in the 2016 elections and none of our presidential campaigns have any Blacks in the media representing their respective campaigns.

Why in the hell do Republicans continue to have white staffers try to address racial issues within the Black community?  Are these campaigns really that stupid?

Black Republicans have absolutely no presence in the media when it comes to representing any official Republican entity:  RNC, House Campaign Committee, Senatorial Committee, presidential campaigns, Republican Governor’s Association, etc.

The response I constantly get is that “they” can only “pitch” Blacks to various media outlets; but they can’t make a CNN or MSNBC put Black Republicans on the air.  Factually, this is a true statement; they can’t make a news network do anything.

My response is very simple, if these Republican communications staffers can’t get the job done; then they should be fired.  Each of these entities has their own internal PR/communications staff and has proven to be totally incompetent when it comes to Black surrogates.

Can you imagine a private sector company retaining a PR firm to place their employees in various media outlets and they came to you and told you they couldn’t get your employees placed?  You would fire them immediately and get a new firm who will get the job done.

Where are people like Sean Moss?  He served as regional administrator for Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under George W. Bush.  He should be all over the media discussing the disastrous decline of Black home ownership under the Obama administration.

Where is Allegra McCullough?  She served as regional administration for the Small Business Administration (SBA) under George W. Bush.  She should be all over the media highlighting how loans to Black business went from 8% under Bush to 1.8% under Obama.

Where is Bob Brown?  He was the highest serving Black in the Nixon administration and a personal confidant of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and former South African president Nelson Mandela.  He should be all over the media discussing civil and voting rights; after all, he was at the table during these discussions in the 1960s.

Where is Bob Woodson?  He worked with former congressman Jack Kemp when he was secretary of HUD for former president George H.W. Bush.  He should be all over the media talking about Ferguson and Baltimore since he works in inner city communities all across the country with stunning success.

Where is Shannon Reeves?  He’s a former RNC staffer, former congressional candidate, lifetime member of the NAACP and a former board member, and finishing his PhD in political statistics.  He should be all over the media talking about voting and civil rights.  He also should be working within the party on data metrics for the Black community.

These are just a few people that come to mind immediately.  So to my Republican friends, I am quite tired of you telling me that you can’t find or don’t know any Blacks you can hire.

To Republicans who are paid to do communications within various party entities listed above, if you can’t get “real” Black surrogates in various media forums; simply man-up and resign because you are not up to the job.

Republicans will not win next year’s presidential election without getting more than the usual 9% of the Black vote.  Blacks are totally disillusioned with Obama and the Democrats; but unfortunately Republicans have continued to ignore the Black community.

I have presented Republicans many opportunities to speak directly to the Black community via radio, TV, and newspapers; but their all white staffers continue to see no value in engaging with the Black community; and unfortunately, many of the few Black staffers feel the same way.

Do Republicans not understand how out of touch they look showing up at a Black church with an all-white staff or showing up at the National Urban League’s annual conference with not one Black on staff?

I’ve said it once and I will say it a thousand times, how can you seek to be president of the United States and not have any Blacks on your staff?  How is it even remotely fathomable in the 21st century for me to have to continue to write about the lack of diversity within the Republican Party?

But just as distressing is the silence of Black Republicans who are too afraid to voice publicly what they constantly voice to me privately.  What exactly are they afraid of? Losing their low level job? Or not being patted on the head and told “that’er boy?”

I want to win the elections next year and if I have to continue to criticize my party until they heed my advice; then look for more columns like this.  When will Republicans learn that they can’t win elections by only appealing to white voters?  Mathematically it is not possible.

But at the same time, don’t just go out there and hire a couple of Black twenty year olds who don’t have the necessary experience or institutional knowledge to know who the relevant Black Republicans are.  Most party leaders and Black staffer have no idea who the people I listed above are.

Republicans should be embarrassed that they have to be chided into doing what’s in their own best interest.  But Black Republicans should also be embarrassed for being so silent and invisible on this issue.

Trump doubles down on Muslim refugee ‘Trojan Horse’ comment

Here we have the New York Post reporting on 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump (on the Sunday shows) reemphasizing his contention that the Syrian refugee stream to Europe and America could bring ISIS terrorists in with it.

donald serious

Donald Trump: “What she [Merkel] has done to Germany is insane.”

Trump also said he carries a gun from time to time.

Just a reminder, the Syrian stream to America is well underway, 97% are Syrian Muslims.

From the New York Post:

WASHINGTON — It’s “insane” that Chancellor Angela Merkel is allowing so many male Syrian refugees into Germany, Donald Trump said Sunday.

“I’ve been watching this migration. And I see the people. I mean, they’re men, they’re mostly men, and they’re strong men,” Trump said on “Face the Nation.” “What I won’t do is take in 200,000 Syrians who could be ISIS.”

“These are physically young, strong men. They look like prime-time soldiers. Now, it’s probably not true. But where are the women?” the GOP frontrunner wondered.

Merkel has welcomed the flood of mostly Syrian and Afghan refugees with compassion saying it’s her “damned duty” to help those running for their lives. An estimated 800,000 newcomers will arrive in Germany by the year’s end.

“What she’s done in Germany is insane. It’s insane. They’re having all sorts of attacks.”

The Gulf States “who have nothing but money” and others should find a big swath of land in Syria and create a safe zone to harbor families, Trump suggested. The US could help economically, but should limit taking in Syrian refugees because they could be terrorists.

Iran Agreement Currently in Violation of Existing U.S. Law

A key passage in the nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers violates an existing America law – a law signed by U.S. President Barack Obama in 2012. This means that if the agreement is currently implemented, the U.S. will be in violation of its own federal law.

The revelation was made public by Fox News, quoting senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the nuclear agreement.

According to the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), if Iran complies with the terms of the agreement, the U.S. is obligated to “license non-U.S. entities that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person to engage in activities with Iran that are consistent with this [agreement].”

Simply put, this means foreign companies that are subsidiaries of U.S. companies will be allowed to do business with Iran.

However, according to an existing federal law, the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act (ITRA), these same foreign subsidiaries are specifically forbidden to do business with Iran until two conditions are met:

1. Iran must not be designated as a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” by the U.S. State Department (as it currently is).

2. Iran must cease pursing, acquiring and developing weapons of mass destruction.

The president of the U.S. must personally certify to Congress that these two conditions have been met before foreign subsidiaries of U.S. companies are legally allowed to do business with Iran.

As for the first condition, Iran is has not been removed from the State Department’s list of “State Sponsors of Terrorism.”

As for the second condition, the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported today on the successful test of a new long-range, Iranian surface-to-surface ballistic missile.

In light of this test, implementing the agreement would not only be in violation of current U.S. law, it would also be a flagrant violation on Iran’s part of the agreement itself.

One of the conditions of the nuclear deal is that current UN restrictions on Iran’s ballistic missile program will remain in place for eight years. UN Security Council Resolution 1029 currently forbids Iran from developing ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear weapon. The resolution also forbids test launches of any missiles using ballistic technology.

“To follow our defense programs, we don’t ask permission from anyone,” said Iran’s Minister of Defense Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.

Dehqan said it is Iran’s first long-range missile that can be precision guided until it reaches its target.

Less than two months after the deal was formalized, a senior figure in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh, announced, “Some wrongly think Iran has suspended its ballistic missile programs in the last two years and has made a deal on its missile program … We will have a new ballistic missile test in the near future that will be a thorn in the eyes of our enemies.”

A variation of Iran’s Shahab-3, this new long-range missile, dubbed the Emad (Pillar), has a range of 1,700 kilometers (1,056 miles) and is accurate within 500 meters (547 yards).

According to a report by Anthony Cordesman, a researcher at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the missile is capable of carrying a 750 kg (1,653 pounds) payload.

Donald Trump Reflects the Rise in National Sentiment

It is often said that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. The turn to the Right in America started with a backlash against the disastrous ideas, both social and economic, that came out of the 1960s and reached fruition with the “stagflation” and anarchy of President Jimmy Carter. A new generation has suffered through the painfully slow half-recovery under President Barack Obama. Thus, both the libertarian and democratic-socialist models have failed. This leaves only a genuine conservative model to save the day, if it can find a champion.  – William R. Hawkins, former economics professor and Congressional staffer.

William R. Hawkins in his column Trump’s Campaign Slogan – ‘Make America Great Again’ – Reflects Rise in National Sentiment writes:

Whatever one thinks of Donald Trump’s campaign style, he has provoked critics to reveal more about themselves than they had intended – or wanted people to realize.

Consider a U.S. News & World Report article written by Dalibor Rohac of the American Enterprise Institute and Jan Zinsky of the Peterson Institute for International Economics (September 24). Entitled “Beware Populist Snake Oil,” it attacks Trump for being part of “a revolt against the modern, globalized world.” The authors deplore a rise in “nationalist sentiments” and oppose those who promise a “return to greatness” for their countries. These are inherently conservative feelings, of course, so Rohac and Zinsky try to link Trump to far-left socialists like Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to counter his appeal to the Right.

Yet, it is clear that Trump is not a socialist, and Tsipras is only a nationalist because he wants relief from EU pressure to pay back the debts socialism ran up. Corbyn favors government ownership of major industries, confiscatory tax rates and unilateral disarmament. His focus is class conflict, not national unity.

Rohac and Zinsky cite a study by sociologist Alina Polyakova which “found that the countries that were hit worst by the financial crisis of 2008 experienced a surge in nationalist sentiments. She argues that economically insecure citizens looked to their national governments for protection. Curiously, however, this instinct has not translated into stronger support for mainstream left-wing parties.”

Trump has tapped into the neo-nationalism lost since the 1960s. The American people want America to be great again because that is the true American spirit. It is what gave rise to the neo-conservative grassroots movement known as the TEA Party.

Trump did not create this grassroots movement but his campaign slogan, and policies, reflect a national desire to return to greatness. Winning is better than losing. America has been losing (economically, socially, militarily) for far to long.

Grassroots America is nationalists but not socialist.

The mantra of ‘Take America Back’ has been replaced with ‘Make America Great Again.’ Trump is on to something and that something may put him in the White House.

Florida State University Grad Student leading the fight for campus concealed carry

Lee Williams, reporter for The Gun Writer, in his column: Colleges students who support campus carry want their voices heard reported:

During most discussions about concealed carry on colleges campuses, the voices of students who support gun rights and want a means to defend themselves are usually missing, according to Rebekah Hargrove a graduate student at Florida State University.

Hargrove is president of the Students For Concealed Carry at Florida State University.

Once she earns her Master’s degree, she plans to continue at FSU toward a PhD in a public health-related field, such as bio-terrorism, and then go to work for the Centers for Disease Control.

Yep, she’s sharp as a tack.

Born in Connecticut but raised in Sarasota, the 22-year-old grew up with guns, shooting with her family.

Hargrove and her friends who support the Second Amendment, “Just want to be treated like everyone else around town,” she said.

“We want the right to defend ourselves,” she said. “The instant we decided to go and get an education, we lost that right.”

Her Students for Concealed Carry at FSU has around 100 members, including some who are under 21 and not yet old enough for a Florida Concealed Carry License.

An article was published on October 11th, 2015 in the Tallahassee Democrat by James Call titled Rebekah Hargrove, an unexpected gun advocate about this incredibly savvy young woman who is leading the fight among college students in Florida to restore the constitutional right to keep and bear arms and the right of self-defense.  Her dedication and help on this issue is enormously valuable to us all.

We have written that guns have gone mainstream because women are buying them for self-defense. This trend is continuing with women on Florida’s campuses who are concerned about their safety.

As the saying goes, better to have a gun and not need it than not have a gun and need it.

Going to Europe and Coming to America

Flying from the United States to any destination in Germany is not much different from what it was in years past.  My wife, Joyce, and I arrived in Munich on the morning of September 24 following an overnight flight from Houston.

During the long tedious flight from Houston I could have watched at least six full-length movies, but I watched just two.  I saw my old friend and former Malibu neighbor, Tatum O’Neal, in her Oscar-winning performance in “Paper Moon,” a movie she made when she was just ten years old, and I saw Orson Welles in “Citizen Kane,” one of Hollywood’s greatest movies of all time.

As I watched Welles’ performance as a crass, overbearing, egomaniacal newspaper publisher, I couldn’t help but feel as if Donald Trump is a perfect reincarnation of Welles’ character, Charles Foster Kane.  Trump and Kane are mirror images of each other.  Anyone wishing to understand the political appeal of “Citizen Trump” should simply rent a video copy of “Citizen Kane.”

After standing in a short line in Munich to show our passports, we were directed to the baggage claim area where our checked bags arrived in a matter of minutes.  We then proceeded to two pairs of swinging doors, one marked “passengers with nothing to declare.”  We passed through the doors with a welcoming smile from a lone customs official and minutes later we were aboard a bus bound for a ski resort in Soell, Austria, just 54 miles south of Munich.

On Friday, we spent a full day in old-town Innsbruck, enjoying a sandwich and a glass of wine in a sunny sidewalk café across the street from the Hofburg Palace where Marie Antoinette grew up.  Although there is no real evidence that she ever uttered the words, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” (“Let them eat cake”), Marie Antoinette eventually became a very unpopular figure in France and was sent to the guillotine on October 16, 1793, during the French Revolution.

The following day, Saturday, September 26, I experienced the joy of driving a 5-speed Ford stick-shift rental car over some 120 miles of high-speed autobahns and just over 100 miles of winding two-lane alpine roads to visit the famed Neuschwanstein castle of Bavaria’s King Ludwig II.  With heavy traffic in both directions, the local farmers pulling their wagonloads of silage made passing a frightening experience… more so for my three passengers than for me.

After riding horse-drawn carts up the mountain to the castle… I can still recall the days when I walked up the long road to Neuschwanstein faster than the horse-drawn carts… we shared lunch with friends before descending the mountain and returning to our ski resort.  On the way back we came across several thousand very frustrated drivers who were stuck in a 10-mile long traffic jam on a two-lane mountain road.  A big Mercedes sedan, pulling a camper trailer, was stalled at the base of an incline with no possibility of getting off the road, turning around, or backing     down.  And since traffic was heavy in both directions there was no opportunity for those stuck in the traffic jam to turn around and find another route.  They may still be there a week later.

In our remaining days we drove to Salzburg, Mozart’s birthplace, where we strolled through the same palace gardens where Julie Andrews sang and danced with the Von Trapp children in “The Sound of Music.”  And we traveled to Berchtesgaden uber Salzburg, where we enjoyed a cold beer in what was once Adolph Hitler’s mountain retreat, the Eagle’s Nest.  We also spent a day driving over the Brenner Pass into northern Italy where we were treated to the most “generous” wine-tasting party I’ve ever experienced in the vineyards of the Merano-Bolzano region.

Although a principal reason for our trip to Austria and Germany at this time of year was to attend Munich’s Oktoberfest, we decided that, with hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees flooding into Germany from Austria and Hungary, it might be a good idea to avoid Munich and other major German cities.  With widespread reports of women dragged from buses and automobiles and gang-raped in broad daylight, it simply wasn’t worth the gamble.

What was most surprising was that, in a week of watching news broadcasts on the BBC, CNN International, and an English-language French network, we saw almost no news coverage of the millions of Muslim refugees fleeing war and brutality in their home countries.  To judge by the amount of coverage of the crisis on European TV, there was no reason to believe that refugees were flooding across European frontiers, that boatloads of refugees were dying at sea, or that hordes of refugees were trudging overland from Greece and Turkey to Western Europe.

For the first time it was possible to believe that perhaps the Germans who lived in close proximity to Dachau, Buchenwald, and other concentration camps during the Nazi holocaust really didn’t know what was going on behind the barbed-wire fences and the iron gates that proclaimed, “Arbeit Macht Frei.”  If leftist regimes during the 1930s and ‘40s could keep their people ignorant of the horrors of the concentration camps by merely managing the news, why couldn’t they keep them ignorant of the invasion of African and Middle Eastern refugees in 2015 when leftist control of the media is just as pervasive and even more sophisticated?

But what was most important for me was to see the joy in Joyce’s eyes as she experienced Austria and Germany, my favorite places on Earth, for the first time.  On first sight, a newcomer to the German and Austrian Alps might feel as if they are looking at a few miles of Potemkin Villages, where every home, every window box, every lawn, every meadow, every mountain stream, and every highland pasture are manicured to absolute perfection.  But it doesn’t take long for the first-time visitor to realize that the perfection in the Alpine region of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland goes on for hundreds of miles, in all directions, apparently without flaw.

In eight days of travel throughout Bavaria, Austria, and the Italian Tyrol, there was not a piece of litter to be seen… no discarded beer cans, plastic bottles, or hamburger wrappers.  There were no automobile junk yards, no garish fast-food restaurants, no highway billboards, no graffiti-sprayed walls, and no dilapidated automobiles.  In a word, that entire region of Planet Earth is “pristine.”  The roads and highways are completely devoid of potholes and the trains and buses run on time.

But, as in everything else, all good things must come to an end.  On Thursday morning, October 1st, we packed our bags and returned by bus to the Munich International Airport.  Arriving at the airport with time to spare, we had plenty of time to stand in a long baggage-check line and a much shorter and faster-moving security check line where all we had to do was place our carry-on bags, our wallets, and our pocket-change into baskets for x-ray examination.  However, while the return flight from Munich to Washington (Dulles) was some three hours shorter than our long flight from Houston to Munich, what awaited us at Dulles was a most unpleasant end to a spectacular European vacation.

Upon entering the Dulles terminal, we found ourselves inching forward in a seemingly endless maze of retractable crowd-control barriers, at the end of which were three or four surly customs agents checking passports.  Passing that obstacle, we were directed to a baggage claim area to retrieve our checked luggage.

After waiting for nearly a half hour to reclaim our bags, we were directed to a second crowd-control maze which appeared to be nothing more than a people-storage facility because there was no discernible movement in the line.  After an hour or more, moving just inches at a time, we learned why the line moved so slowly.  The line we’d been standing in emptied into a room with some 20 or 30 unattended electronic kiosks which required thousands of kiosk-illiterate travelers to study glowing touch-screens, trying to figure out what was required of them.

Once passengers figured out that they were first required to scan their passports, they were then required to position themselves so that the kiosk could produce a photograph of the passenger, along with a form to be completed affirming that the passenger carried no fruits, vegetables, plants, or seeds; no meats, animals, or animal products; no disease agents or cell cultures; no soil from a foreign farm or ranch; that the passenger had not been in close proximity to livestock; that the passenger was not carrying in excess of $10,000 in U.S. currency; etc… the very same questions we’d responded to on the customs declaration form completed prior to landing.

Once we’d completed the kiosk interrogation and had our kiosk-generated customs declaration forms in hand, we were directed to yet another waiting area filled with crowd-control barriers.  After moving through that maze at a snail’s pace we found three or four bored customs officers sitting behind desks, doing nothing but collecting the kiosk-generated customs declarations.  Then, after unburdening ourselves of our customs declarations we were directed to a baggage collection area where we were able to return our checked baggage to United Airlines for the final leg of our journey to Tulsa.

From there, we found ourselves in a fourth passenger collection room with a seemingly endless maze of retractable crowd-control barriers, at the end of which we were required to empty our pockets into trays, along with our carry-on-bags, remove our shoes and belts, and submit to a full-body scan and a full-body pat-down.

To say that the process of reentering the United States was a maddening ordeal would be an understatement, but it’s the sort of thing that happens when the inmates are allowed to run the asylum.  As I stood in those endless lines, the most painful and humiliating punishment devised by the fiendish bureaucrats of the Transportation Security Administration, I couldn’t help but think of the millions of illegal aliens streaming unimpeded across our southern border.

George Orwell warned us about this.  Nineteen eight-four has finally arrived!

Who planned the Ankara Peace Rally Bombings?

Twin simultaneous bombings ripped through a crowd of opposition supporters and Kurdish activists at an Ankara peace rally today killing 97, maiming and injuring over 246. The bombings occurred just a few weeks before a snap election scheduled for November 1st.  There is suspicion that the Turkish President couldn’t have wished for a more timely mishap.  It comes before an election he called to try and eliminate the Kurdish minority HDP party and return his AKP  party to its previous super majority.  You may recall the Suruc bombing in July that killed 33 socialist youths affiliated with the HDP that kick started the PKK uprising in southeastern Turkey. That was used as a pretext for Erdogan’s subsequent counter terrorism campaign and air assault on both Syrian Kurdish YPG and PKK bastions in northern Iraq. The better to condition the US request for Turkish clearance of the use of Incirlik air base for the flagging air assault campaign against ISIS in both Syria and Iraq. It is not without coincidence that he PKK today called for a temporary truce before the looming election.  The conventional wisdom is, as in the Suruc case , that it was possibly the work of ISIS. However, there may have been other Islamist contenders for this latest terrorist spectacle in Turkey.  Recall that the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, the IHH, an ally of the AKP regime, supplied funds and weapons to opposition Islamist groups in Syria.

Watch this ReutersTV video of the Ankara Peace Rally bombings.

Our usually astute  European observer of things Turkish drew attention  in a conversation following the Ankara blasts  that daily polls taken by Erdogan show that his standing has slipped . Thus, indicating that his quest for conversion of the currently ceremonial post of President in Turkey to an executive one with broad powers may be out of reach. Moreover, our colleague indicated that the opposition in the Ankara parliament, including Republican, Nationalist and the Kurdish HDP parties, are united against AKP supremacy.  In fact, he said, the parliament is rarely convened in Ankara by the caretaker government. He also noted that when he viewed Turkish television coverage of the Ankara  bombing incident there were HDP flags and banners  prominent in the footage along with those of trade union groups. However, following the deadly blast, he observed that footage somehow disappeared from Turkish television news reports.

With the dramatic entry of Russia in the Syrian fray both Erdogan’s and Obama’s vain hopes for control of the situation have been eclipsed. Calls for establishment of both no-fly zones and safe havens by the Turkish and US Congressional and Presidential hopefuls appear to be wishful thinking.  Russian President Putin has thrown in his lot with Iran  propping  up the besieged Syrian President Bashar Assad who controls less than one sixth of his country.  Thus, the suspicion is today’s Peace rally bombings might not been perpetrated by PKK, known Marxist terrorist groups or ISIS. That leaves the question of whether Islamists groups allied with Erdogan and the AKP may have been complicit in the bombings?  In the dictatorial regime of Erdogan with a chastened prosecution and judiciary, the answers to these questions may not emerge with any perfunctory forensic investigation by Turkish authorities.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-10-at-10.42.31-PM-800x594The Washington Post (WaPo) report described the grisly and chaotic scene following the bombings, “Blasts kill scores at peace rally in Turkey in sign of worsening instability.”   Note in these excerpts how the Turkish PM Davutoglu asserts this bombing was aimed as disrupting what passes for democracy in this NATO ally and other commentators immediately suspect ISIS.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Saturday there were “strong indications” the attack was carried out by suicide bombers, although there was no immediate claim of responsibility. He said the target was Turkish unity, democracy and stability.

“Early indicators would point to ISIS as the culprit,” said Soner Cagaptay, director of the Turkish research program at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Either way, “this could well be Turkey’s 9/11,” Cagaptay said. “This is simply the worst terror attack in Turkish history.”

The United States also condemned the twin bombings as a terrorist attack. “It is particularly important at this time that all Turkish citizens recommit to peace and stand together against terror,” the State Department said in a statement.

The demonstrators, mobilized by a coalition of Turkish trade unions, had gathered outside Ankara’s main [train] station hours earlier to chant, wave banners and flags and call for peace. The crowd included a mix of Kurdish and leftist Turkish activists, local media reports said.

A video circulated on social media showed demonstrators linking arms to perform a traditional dance before a fiery explosion erupted in the background, sending the crowd into a panic. It was unclear whether that explosion was from the first or the second bomb detonated outside the station.

Images from the scene showed dazed and bloody demonstrators clinging to one another in the aftermath of the blasts. Bodies, some of them dismembered, lay on the street, covered with flags protesters had brought to the march.

Tensions between police and demonstrators flared following the explosions, after activists accused security forces of blocking ambulances arriving to treat the injured. Turkey’s pro-democracy activists say they are fed up with a state that is quick to crack down on dissenters but cannot keep its own citizens safe from terrorists.

In a live television broadcast, Turkish Interior Minister Selami Altinok said in response to a reporter’s question that he would not resign because there had been no security breach.

Still, Turkish authorities announced a news blackout on images showing the moment of each blast, gruesome or bloody images or “images that create a feeling of panic,” according to the Associated Press. The agency also reported that social media users in Ankara were unable to access Twitter after the blast.

Turkey, which media watchdog groups say has one of the world’s worst records on press freedom, often blocks access to Twitter and other sites for content the government deems inappropriate.

California Dreaming: Two Muslims try to join the Islamic State

“According to the document, on the last Friday of April, after prayer services at a mosque in Orange County, Elhuzayel and Badawi spoke enthusiastically about Islamic State….She had described her son as ‘Muslim, but not very religious, just normal.’ Over the last year, he had become more observant, frequently attending Friday prayer services at a mosque in Anaheim.”

Are these mosques being investigated? Is what they teach being closely monitored by people who know what they’re looking for, and aren’t in thrall to the “Islam is a religion of peace” propaganda? Or would that be “Islamophobic”?

“O.C. men accused of trying to join Islamic State are charged with financial crimes,” by Richard Winton, Los Angeles Times, October 7, 2015 (thanks to Darcy):

Two Orange County men accused of conspiring to aid Islamic State militants fighting in Iraq and Syria are now facing additional charges involving bank fraud and financial aid crime.

A new indictment revealed Wednesday accuses Anaheim residents Nader Elhuzayel, 25, and Muhanad Badawi, 24, of a series of financial crimes. Elhuzayel is accused of 25 counts of bank fraud, and Badawi is charged with federal financial aid fraud.

In April and May, Elhuzayel got cash through a scheme to defraud three different banks, according to the indictment, which says he deposited stolen checks into his personal checking accounts and then withdrew cash at Orange County branch offices and ATMs.

Badawi is charged with using his federal financial aid to buy a plane ticket to Turkey for Elhuzayel.

The indictment also includes preexisting charges of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, Islamic State. Both men have pleaded not guilty to the original charges.

Federal authorities said the men drew the attention of counter-terrorism agents with inflammatory comments on social media, prompting an investigation that led to their arrests last month. They are due back in court July 6 and are scheduled to go to trial July 28. Details of a call between the two men before their capture were contained in an FBI agent’s affidavit.

According to the document, on the last Friday of April, after prayer services at a mosque in Orange County, Elhuzayel and Badawi spoke enthusiastically about Islamic State. It says one proclaimed a wish to join the group and die a martyr on a battlefield.

Although Yemen was attractive for its natural beauty, the men agreed they would prefer to fight in Syria, the document said. It said they talked about drinking wine together in the paradise that awaited them after they were killed. Federal agents said they overheard the conversation….

Elhuzayel and Badawi are accused of setting in motion a plan for Elhuzayel to travel to the Middle East and fight for Islamic State. Agents from a counter-terrorism task force intercepted Elhuzayel at Los Angeles International Airport before he boarded a plane bound for Turkey last month. Badawi was taken into custody at an Anaheim gas station, an FBI spokeswoman said….

Elhuzayel’s mother, Falak, has previously called the allegations against her son “impossible.” Speaking on the phone before her son’s initial court appearance, Falak Elhuzayel described her son as “a very good kid — not the kind of person who would fit into this kind of category.”

She said she and her husband dropped their son off at LAX the day of his arrest and confirmed he was preparing to board a flight to Istanbul and continue on to Israel. The family, she said, is Palestinian and her son was traveling to visit relatives in the West Bank.

That evening, federal agents raided the room at the Crystal Inn motel in Anaheim where Nader Elhuzayel had lived with his parents since the family declared bankruptcy and lost their house two years ago.

Falak Elhuzayel said a team of agents upended the room in the search for evidence and asked her why her son had purchased a one-way ticket. She said she told them that he had decided to buy a return ticket later because he did not know how long he would stay in the West Bank.

She had described her son as “Muslim, but not very religious, just normal.” Over the last year, he had become more observant, frequently attending Friday prayer services at a mosque in Anaheim, she said. But she insisted it was impossible that he’d slipped into extremism. He was, she said, “a simple, gullible, nice kid.”

If convicted, Nader Elhuzayel faces up to 30 years imprisonment on each bank fraud count and Badawi faces up to five years imprisonment on the financial aid fraud count. Each man also faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of providing material support to Islamic State.

Planned Parenthood Sex Education and the ‘Dental Dams’ Lie

We apologize for this information, but as we allow our children to be assaulted this way in school we cannot expect to be too sensitive ourselves. We have “sanitized” the article. – Judith Gelernter Reisman and Thomas R. Hampson

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves,” Matthew 10:16

The Kinsey Cult

Ira Reiss, a Sociologist and Professor Emeritus at Minnesota University was a charter member of Kinsey’s Sex Cult. His papers, articles, and audio and video recordings already are housed at the Kinsey Institute, 57 years of his work so far.  Reiss, like other Kinsey disciples, advocated the production of pornography and its display for “training” purposes to prepare students entering the new sexuality fields spawned by Kinsey’s supposed revelations on sex.  Kinsey gleefully directed the development of these training materials, which during the late 60’s, started to be called Sexuality Attitude Restructuring (later re-named Reassessment) (SAR) sessions.

These training sessions are promoted as sexual desensitization seminars, pornographic extravaganzas of all manner of enthusiastic sexual activities presented to groups of men and women as training to become certified therapists, counselors, educators or researchers, etc, in matters of sex and sexuality. Viewing these images triggers sexual arousal, (blush) actually changing their brains, minds and memories. Even the New York Times, quoting the science on brain change and plasticity noted, “the vicarious thrill of watching sex, it turns out, is not so vicarious after all.”[1] In addition to desensitizing sexologists to the images of heterosexual activities, sado-masochism, group sex, sodomy, the use of sex “toys” (apparatus) and other unmentionables, the sex leaders also hold small group discussions to explore the participants’ attitudes and biases in order to neutralize any ‘negative’ views.

But the stated purpose of these sessions is not the whole story, or even the real story.

Early on, these sessions were not used to merely desensitize, and encourage acceptance of all sex acts but as indoctrination into a “sex positive” mindset.  Such training has been a requirement for certification by the American Association of Sex Educators and Counselors (AASEC) which later became the American Association of Sex Educators Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).  Indeed, leaders often pressured participants into sexual experimentation with each other.

Reiss revealed this in his book, An Insider’s View of Sexual Science since Kinsey, recounting his experience at an 8 day SAR session in San Francisco in 1972.  At the time, Reiss already was a professor at the University of Minnesota where its medical school was one the first in the country to offer SAR training to medical students.  But it was a new, untested program.

The director of U of M’s SAR program had secured a grant from the Playboy Foundation to send 25 couples from the University, all expenses paid, to San Francisco to receive training from the group that had followed on Kinsey’s practices, the National Sex Forum (NSF) (aka: the National Sex and Drug Forum).  The purpose was to improve the programming at Minnesota.  Reiss and wife were among the volunteers for the Playboy sponsored training of future national sex education. Reiss reports:

“The view presented by many of the staff was supportive of people trying out the full variety of sexual acts that exist (S and M, gay, extramarital, group sex, etc.).  The supposed purpose was to allow people to break through their old restrictive sexual attitudes.  I had no objection to offering such options.  However, as they elaborated, it became clear that this support of broad experimentation was more than just permission giving—it was presented as a demand to experiment.”[2]

When Reiss resisted, the SAR leaders ridiculed him, one of them saying, “Are you hostile to group sex or gay sex, and is that why [you are] so cautious about trying something new?  Are you biased?”[3]

Reiss explained that he did not object to the idea of such activity, or even to promoting such experimentation.  Rather, he objected to making it a demand instead of merely encouraging it.

And promoting and demanding and forcing freewheeling sexual libertinism, SAR trainers have been doing for over 40 years now.

While AASECT requires SAR training as an element in their certification standards, the Kinsey Institute is still involved and Planned Parenthood has joined in.  In 2007 Planned Parenthood of Indiana, the Kinsey Institute and AASECT cooperated in staging a SAR training at an Episcopal Retreat Center (of all places).  SAR trainings take place continually all over the country every year.  Those attending become the “experts” who write the sex education materials, who teach the teachers who put on the programs that “inform” our children about healthy sexuality.

Mentally and emotionally corrupted graduates of the SAR training become the “experts” who design sex-ed courses and teach our children. Thus, they have “determined” that the body’s solid waste exit is a “genital” as it is described in the currently used sex education program in Hawaii; that sexual excitement from urine is just normal sex play, endorsed by a Massachusetts Department of Public Health book distributed to Massachusetts children; that orgies are natural entertainment, that pornographic sex addiction is a myth; that it’s normal for children to have sex and that they have the right to choose whatever sexual activity they may think to try; and that sodomy (legalized 6-3 in 2003) is healthy sexual practice for all sexual orientations.

The whole purpose of these “sex positive” programs is not to liberate adults from their Victorian moral prisons but to indoctrinate children into an unrestrained, sexually available lifestyle. Even if such “programs” are not being taught in all schools yet, this material is available on multiple websites and widely promoted to all comers, regardless of age.  The Kinsey Institute, SIECUS, Planned Parenthood, AASECT, and others all provide sites that extoll the virtues of unrestrained sexual experimentation.

Is it any wonder that youthful STD’s, pregnancies, abortions and abuse are pandemic?

Which brings us to one of the big lies spread by these organizations: safe/safer sex.

dental dams pamphletNow: The Dental Dam Lie

After telling children that they must use the condom properly; unroll it, check carefully for any holes, full directions for putting on, etc., Minnesota AIDS Project experts (SAR graduates) tell youngsters they can cut and use plastic wrap as a “barrier” when a child has oral contact with “the opening at the end of the alimentary canal through which solid waste matter leaves the body,”[4] known by other cruder jargons.

What?

After all the care telling children to assure the condom is in perfect condition, sex experts endorse plastic wrap!?  A child asked me once “if we don’t have plastic wrap, can we use tin foil?”

This Minnesota AIDS Project advertisement teaches children how to make their own dental dam.

Proper Use for Dental Dams

“A rubber dam and accessories is a device composed of a thin sheet of latex with a hole in the center intended to isolate a tooth from fluids in the mouth during dental procedures … The device includes the rubber dam, rubber dam clamp, rubber dam frame, and forceps for a rubber dam clamp. This classification does not include devices intended for use in preventing transmission of sexually transmitted diseases through oral sex…”[5] (Italics added)

sheer dental dam“We know of no other latex dam cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for protection against STDs[6] for” oral sodomy, or oral contact with that opening at the end of the alimentary canal through which solid waste matter leaves the body.” “*NOTE: Unlike Sheer Glyde Dams, dental dams were never intended for, tested or proven to be an effective barrier for the prevention of the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). (Italics added)[7]  And there is the warning:

“Warning: Do not use during penetrating penile/vaginal or penile/anal intercourse.”[8]

Requests for documentation from sales@glydehealth.com for all three approvals await.  So far, weeks have passed and we’ve heard nothing.  And we probably won’t either.  Documentation we obtained from the FDA specifically states that the dams are NOT to be used for oral/anal sex.

Which brings us back to Reiss, Planned Parenthood, the Kinsey Institute, and AASECT at their Retreat on Sexuality at the Episcopal Retreat Center. For Planned Parenthood has brainwashed thousands of teachers, counselors, educators, lawyers, judges, doctors for five or six decades.

“If you choose to have vaginal or anal intercourse, use condoms every time. They can reduce the risk of HPV. They are not as effective against HPV as they are against other infections such as chlamydia and HIV. But they greatly reduce the risk of HPV infection. You can use condoms, Sheer Glyde dams, dental dams, or plastic wrap during oral sex to further reduce the risk.”[9]

Now, it is time to bring this into the courtroom. Do “condoms” and homemade, mislabeled “dental dams” give the protection Planned Parenthood claims, or are they just an excuse to hypersexualize younger and younger children, groom them, and leave them increasingly vulnerable to disease, even death, and sexual abuse by peers and adults?  Let us hear from you if you have been victimized by believing the lies that were told in school about condoms, never approved by the FDA for sodomy, and so-called “dental dam” safety.

Energy Liberation Plan Update

As you may remember, the Energy Liberation Plan was slated to be released today. I have bad news and good news. The bad news is that it will not be out today.

The good news is the reason for the delay: there has been so much interest shown in the plan by major political players, that we’re taking the time to work with them and create a full-blown national campaign with an even better shot at impacting the candidates’ energy positions in 2016. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, my Forbes column announcing the Energy Liberation Plan features a preview/introduction, and if you’d like me to appear on your show (or at an event) to discuss it, you can send me an email at support@industrialprogress.net, or just reply to this one.

Act Now or Be Enslaved

Hello my fellow Americans, we are now at a very important crossroads concerning the direction our republic will either proceed or crumble upon.  Right now because of recent developments, a majority of sovereign citizens throughout the United States are completely void of happiness or joy.  In fact it states in the holy-scriptures that when the wicked reign, the people mourn.  There is absolutely great mourning concerning the needless deaths of younger black people being slaughtered by other black Americans in predominantly black neighborhoods in American cities.

Despite the ongoing deceptive news reports of low unemployment in our nation, record numbers of Americans are simply existing without even participating in the workforce.  One of the main reasons is because millions of jobs are no longer available for Americans to return to.  The wicked application of oppressively high corporate taxes along with draconian Environmental Protection Agency measures have benefited competitor nations like Canada and China. They have either received corporate headquarters that have left the United States, or they have assumed economic advantages over America due to insane trade agreements that put our republic at a disadvantage.

Thanks but no thanks, to Obama’s socialist economic policies and a compliant congress that rarely challenged them, the refusal to allow the Keystone Pipeline, stopping new oil exploration and harvesting in Alaska, the selling of millions of acres of American farmland to foreign nations, particularly China could soon prove detrimental to U.S. food supplies and economic prowess.  Soon, more and more food gown in our nation will be shipped out to China and elsewhere, depleting food supplies.  If there is ever a nation-wide combination of droughts and mega storms, there may not be enough food to last during such long term setbacks.

Right now America continues to be invaded by legions of illegal immigrants and Islamic terrorists, all with the permission of the Obama administration and the United Nations.

After the recent shooting in Oregon, president Obama said he chose to politicize the gun control issue.  For him it was more important to try and drum up support for taking guns from law-abiding citizens than reaching out and showing gratitude toward Chris Mintz who bravely stood in the way of a cowardly shooter who elected to go after unarmed Christians who were hampered by stupid regulatory barriers to self-protection.

In other worldly developments, Russia has unveiled a new almost invincible army tank on the heels of usurping America’s onetime massive presence in the Middle East.  In the meantime, President Barack Hussein Obama continues to weaken the United States military by destroying morale, getting rid of important weapons system and booting out the most worthy Generals and other pro American military leaders.  To make matters worse Obama has turned the once mighty United States military into the world’s largest military social experiment for unnatural sexual practitioners, muslims, trannies atheists, witches and warlocks. Of course, Christian principles and Christianity itself has been ushered out of the armed forces.

It was embarrassing to witness the shameful display of the U.S. delegation at the United Nations during the riveting speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They acted as if he was the scourge of the earth and joined the rest of the world in treating our greatest ally as if Israelis were the ones who said death to America.  I couldn’t help but think of Biblical prophecy that foretold of a time when all the nations of the world would turn against the nation that is the apple of God’s eye.

Equally crazy has been the five decades of bigoted progressive indoctrination in government schools against the United States, Liberty, God, free market economics and everything good.  For the most part, America’s black community remains chained on the spiritual and mental plantation that inspires self-fulfilling prophesies of gloom, doom and just a life of hard knocks very few learn from.  The evidence is the family breakdown, the massive murder rates of their own kind through abortion and the blowing away of scores of young black men by other blacks every single week.  Perhaps the most horrific development is the multi-generational cursing of blacks over their young and each other which has produced a segment of society that continues to fulfil those negative proclamations.

That form of self-induced slavery now voluntarily accepted and practiced by many black Americans pleases their elitist progressive big government masters beyond measure.  Unfortunately, an increasing number of young white Americans are beginning to accept and take on the Engels inspired philosophy that destroys a higher quality of life while diminishing personal liberty and societal stability.

But alas, the before mentioned developments do not have to be, nor should they be the final judgement upon our currently troubled republic turned mob ruled democracy.   It is high time for those of us who have chosen not to accept the mission of destruction and enslavement being waged against our republic to stand and fight against that madness.  “We the People” must force the reestablishment of government adherence to the U.S. Constitution and the recognition of our unalienable rights which come from God, not government.  By the way, it was God and those inspired by him who laid the framework for this great nation under God with liberty and justice for all.

Let us never forget, what is taught to one generation decides the direction the nation takes in the next.  What direction do you want, liberty or slavery?  The choice is up to you, so exercise it.
