America: Worth the Sacrifice


Has anyone dared to wonder the reason behind condemning upset American Patriots willing to resist Dem-Marxist tyranny with arms is condemned (even by many Conservatives), YET Black Lives Matter and Antifa violent riots and looting are called “mostly peaceful protests”?

Personally, I believe confronting the current American tyranny should begin with peaceful – YET LOUD – protests and resistance to laws and bureaucratic (unlegislated) rules. However I suspect a time is soon coming when Biden/Dem-controlled law enforcement agencies will begin confronting Conservative protests with violent enforcement and/or the Communist private paramilitary forces of BLM/Antifa will be unleashed on Conservatives without restraint. IN THAT DAY I will NOT be one to sit idly to get my head bashed in standing up for God-given and Constitutional Rights ignored by a now corrupt three Branches of government. This is the sentiment expressed in the Justin Smith submission.

America: Worth the Sacrifice

I’ll Take Liberty Over Peace Every Time – America Needs Her Hard Men

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/6/2021 11:32 PM

Young man, what we meant in going for those redcoats was this: we always had governed ourselves, and we always meant to. They didn’t mean we should.”  ~ Levi Preston, Veteran of the American Revolution, 1842 [or 1843 depending who you read]

Reasonable Americans and decent and sane humans in general naturally prefer peace over any violent environment in society, and although one should always strive to preserve the peace, peace isn’t worth a damn if it’s preserved at the expense of individual liberty, through the coercion and threats of retaliation and violence from the foot-soldiers of an opponent and a regime that governs and manipulates the mechanisms and processes of “the law”, through diktats and tyranny and outside the normal rules and understanding of established law.

American Conservative pundits have long noted that our country is in deep trouble, as the nation is repeatedly assaulted by the Communists of the Democratic Party, in their efforts to destroy the Republic and the Founding of the nation. We are in the middle of a cold civil war, that’s on the verge of turning hot in rapid fashion, by way of the Democrat’s hard left push through Joe Biden’s executive orders and Big Tech and the Marxist/Maoist Cancel Culture proletariat in the streets and academia, and as it grows more successful with each passing day and drives America into a new ruthless tyrannical socialist structure, largely due to the useful idiots and the Marxist tools in the ranks of the Millennials, seventy percent of whom find Communism to be an acceptable alternative to Capitalism.

[Blog Editor: My examination shows the 70% refers more to Socialism than Communism. NEVERTHELESS, in this day and age of looking for sanitized words acceptable to the masses (e.g., Progressive rather than Liberal or Leftist), Socialism today is merely a more acceptable term than Communism for the brainwashed masses. Brainwashed Millennials, Gen-Zs and younger need to read some actual history and understand the context of the world’s first Communist dictator Vladimir Lenin who said, “The goal of socialism is communism.” Here is the Lenin context:  Lenin explained, “The goal of socialism is communism”; By American Minute with Bill Federer; Self-Educated American; 12/11/17.

Now some info on that “70%” statistic:

Full of a desire to exact vengeance from Conservative America for a litany of delusional and fallacious reasons, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party Communists are advancing a grudge-filled aggressive policy toward traditional America and every fine thing accomplished by Her people since our War of Independence and the Founding of America. They hate all that America represents across the span of history and the immense expanse of America’s Flyover Country where Her patriots are found.

Anyone who accepts the premise that violence can never be the answer to tyranny, as recently suggested by Trevor Loudon in his March 4th [UPDATED 3/11/21 – premium subscribers] Epoch Times article, is already permanently defeated and a prisoner of his own cowardice. 

Loudon writes [For non-subscribers, Loudon’s article can be read on We The People Convention]: 

Violence will not save America … (continuing four paragraphs later to say) … the Second Amendment must be preserved at all costs. An armed populace is at least some check on tyranny … Americans should keep their guns and work everyday to ensure they never have to use them against their own people.”

Loudon’s reasoning is based on the politicization and weaponization of the military against conservatives and the idea that the Left will welcome any right-wing violence as an excuse to lock the nation down tighter, as he prefaced his aforementioned words with:

This country will be saved peacefully or not at all. If significant violence breaks out, it’s over.”

Well Damn! I guess it’s over then. Only a fool could make Loudon’s statement and believe it to be true.

What are we supposed to do? Keep showing up at protests with our firearms, as if role-playing — suspecting it’s all for show and thinking not one person will ever use those AR-15s for their real purpose — knowing that most of these summer soldiers and sunshine patriots will “shrink from the service of their country”? Just wait quietly counting our ammo ’til the ATF and the FBI demand our firearms upon Uncle Joe’s orders and we meekly hand them over? Wait silently while Biden and his regime consolidate and solidify their power and America descends into a thousand years of darkness and tyranny?

The Democratic Mayors and Governors managing the recent race-riots of the Communist Black Lives Matter, supported by self-loathing white Antifa Communists, certainly didn’t shy away from violence as a tool for achieving their Marxist agenda in their areas of control. They sanctioned violence to subvert the law and set the nation on edge as they demanded the Oval Office be placed at their command, rather than in any righteous defense of anything. 

One should recall that in December of 1776, with General George Washington and some 2000 fighting men braving a bitter cold in the face of a superior numbers and a small pox epidemic, Thomas Paine wrote:

These are the times that try men’s souls; the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” [Full Pamphlet “THE AMERICAN CRISIS, No. 1, 1776” published 12/19/1776 and read to Washington’s Troops prior to crossing the Delaware River for the Battle of Trenton 12/24/1776.]

America faces a similar crisis today, and truth be known, given our situation, our Founders would already have been shooting by now, and that’s no exaggeration.

After the Biden regime took hold of the reins of power, America saw an increase in the demands for defunding the police, along with the continued trampling of individual and property rights through mask mandates and business lockdowns, as rioters continued to loot and burn. Biden also hamstrung U.S. energy production; and Biden declared Whites in general, White supremacy and White initiated systemic racism to be the nation’s number one problem, while Democrats continue to subvert election laws and weaponize and politicize the federal agencies against conservatives and Christians.

[Blog Editor: In case you were unaware, Chairman Biden came to my neck of the woods in Tulsa, OK to infuse race-baiting division rather than the LIE of uniting the nation to fuel hatred over White Supremacists going ballistic over false charges a Black teen raped a White elevator operator in 1921 Tulsa – 100 YEARS AGO. The massacre was a horrendous evil, but I wasn’t there in 1921. I understand there are only 3-centanarion Black individuals who were little children alive from 1921.

Youtube VIDEO: USA: Black activists commemorate victims of ‘Tulsa massacre’ in armed march

Posted by Ruptly

Posted: May 30, 2021

Black activists, many of them pro-Second Amendment and armed, marched in Tulsa on Saturday to commemorate the victims of the ‘Tulsa race massacre’ in Oklahoma.

Organised in part by Elmer Geronimo Pratt Gun Club of Austin, Texas and The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, the armed march paid tribute to Black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa who were attacked, injured or killed by members of a white mob during one of the most violent episodes of racial violence in the US history.

Organised under the banner of “Reparations Now”, the march marked a century since the Tulsa massacre which took place from May 31, 1921, to Jun 1, 1921.

In the meantime, a very real type of violence is currently being conducted against America through Biden’s Open Border Policies that allow an invading army of Illegal Aliens — too often criminals and terrorists —  to freely enter the country along with tons of meth and deadly fentanyl, to rape, rob and murder, or otherwise simply roll across the land like a horde of ravenous locusts. 

Far from a crisis in any normal sense of the word, no one should mistake the situation on America’s southern border for anything other than Biden’s Open Border policy and manufactured “crisis” that is a part of the Democratic Party’s Marxist agenda to complete the “fundamental transformation of America” through aliens who hold no real loyalty to America and Her traditions, to be used to erode and subvert the fabric of democratic mechanisms in local communities, while drawing checks from taxpayer funded welfare programs.

[Blog Editor: Chairman Biden’s Illegal Aliens:

If the Federal Government and the Biden regime are not going to secure our borders, pray tell, just what is wrong with armed American militias within the border states stopping the illegal alien hordes at the border and forcing them back towards Tijuana, Nuevo Laredo or wherever from whence they came?

But don’t dare let any Conservative suggest that an armed defense of America against these domestic terrorists of the Democratic Party, the Enemy From Within, may be somehow justified in the pursuit of restoring and following current laws on the books in the U.S. codes or even the U.S. Constitution. Don’t dare suggest a defense of America’s borders, culture and language, even in a peaceful manner and in favor of E Pluribus Unum[***], unless one wishes to hear unhinged fringe lunatic tirades from all corners of the Marxist Democrats, along with the bleatings of the wimpish weak-kneed Republicans-In-Name-Only.

[***Blog Editor: Looking at E Pluribus Unum – Out of Many, One:

The original concept of E Pluribus Unum was conceived of 13 newly independent sovereign Colonies uniting into One Nation focused on Liberty. As time went on for the USA, Liberty became a magnate for people to immigrate here. For the USA to remain a successful nation united E Pluribus Unum began to be viewed as the melting pot of an immigrant nation adopting one American culture of Liberty. The Dem-Marxists are destroying the melting pot of unity to create the divisiveness of tossed salad. A diverse America will become a banana republic America replacing Liberty with tyranny.

It is not simply the ideas of Adam Smith, Charles Montesquieu, John Lock and Thomas Jefferson and James Madison that are being rejected and abandoned by the Democratic Party Communists and their supporters, but they are also abandoning the bedrock of civilization, as it was developed by the Greeks, Romans and Christians, and all the individualism that emanated from the philosophers of classical antiquity and through the Enlightenment to create a spirit and a sense of rugged independence in Americans, that still resides in many of us to this day.

As noted by Mark Levin on April 25th:

We have allowed the mob and the Democratic Party to define who we are as people. They defame us, slander our ancestors in history, trash our founding documents and principles. They are mostly reprobates who hate the country in which they live and have contributed nothing towards [its] betterment. Indeed, they live off the sweat and toil of others, while they pursue a destructive and diabolical course for our nation, undermining and sabotaging virtually every institution in our society.”

Our current conflicts are actually being waged between two extremely different economic systems. Republicans largely pursue a Capitalist system, even though our current system still more closely resembles a Crony-Capitalist system (thanks to Woodrow Wilson), while the Democrats desire something akin to Marxism and/ or the sort of economic fascism reminiscent of the Red Fascism of the Bolsheviks and Black Fascism of the National Socialists, where everything is produced for and owned by the state. These are diametrically opposed systems, antithetical to one another, with the Democrats’ Marxist “utopian vision” incompatible with out Founding’s premise of inalienable God-given rights and individual liberty, and they cannot coexist any longer; and preferably, the side of liberty must emerge victorious on the other side of this battle.

[Blog Editor: This a good spot to examine Democrat (and probable closet-Marxist) Woodrow Wilson as the launching pad for Leftists ending Liberty in the USA. Dr. James Finck wrote an essay about American Presidents who pushed the envelope of dictatorship in American governance. When he got to Woodrow Wilson, Finck wrote:

In the Twentieth Century, one of the presidents who had the charge of dictator leveled at him was Woodrow Wilson. As a true progressive, he believed in a strong federal government and did everything in his power to strengthen and enlarge it. It was Wilson who pushed an Amendment to create an income tax to fund the federal government. Wilson also passed the Espionage and Sedition Acts. As under Adams, it became a criminal act to criticize the government, the president, or the war. It was Wilson who created the Committee on Public Information that turned into the nation’s first propaganda machine. If any president seemed prepared to become a dictator, it was Wilson. When he tried to push the League of Nations through Congress (even many Democrats opposed it), he spoke of running for a third term so he could force it through.  We will never know if he would have followed through. He suffered a stroke making it difficult to even finish his second term. – Dictatorship; By Dr. James Finck; The Roanoke Star; 10/7/19

Finck’s paragraph is the short version. I sense some Wilsonian seeds of control in the early 1900s is baring the fruit of tyranny in the 2020s:

The Democratic Party’s embrace of Collectivism and Cancel Culture denies Individual Liberty, and anyone who denies individualism and Individual Liberty also denies Western Civilization.

There isn’t any compromise to be had between Liberty-minded individuals who love Freedom and Communists who demand tyranny and submission to the state.

America’s Conservative and Republican pundits, not one in the same these days, are good ones for speaking about the “peaceful transition of power” and bragging about how they will win in 2022, as if everything is settled and it’s business as usual in the face of the stolen 2021 election. This braggadocio falls flat in light of the fact that nothing has yet been done to remove illegal election mechanisms from the voting system in the various Democratic Party strongholds that played an integral part in the treason, and this last election had more earmarks of an outright soft coup than any “peaceful transition of power”.

And yet, no matter the slim margin of their majority in Congress, the red radicals of Democratic Party remain in a constant stage of rabid rage and hysteria aimed at Conservative America, who desire more than a simple victory over the Election Weeks. More than a simple victory, these red radical Marxists/Maoists are howling for Conservative America to be completely silenced in the political arena and suppressed as a movement, definitively and clearly obliterated.

Just how far is any one American supposed to let this tyranny go before saying, “Hey Y’All — Open Fire”?

America’s answer to the howls for our destruction will determine whether America is ruled by its Big Tech oligarchs, American plutocrats, the racists running academia and the feeble children of Marxists or governed by Free Born Americans — a Great People — who put this America we love so well above all else other than our God, without the unnatural and obsessive desire for the accumulation of massive amounts of wealth and power exhibited by the Marxists of this nation.

America needs something far superior to Her summer soldiers and sunshine patriots, those self-described “happy warriors” who are more interested in fighting for deregulating businesses, lower capital gains taxes or paying out American tax-dollars to fight foreign wars, against the advice of our Founders, rather than fighting the real and necessary wars right here for the preservation of Freedom and Liberty for all Americans. For the real fight for Liberty at home, America needs Her hard men willing to do the hard tasks to defend U.S. and individual sovereignty, traditional America and its heritage and all that means — men who will not fade in the fight but will stand firm and true to their last dying gasp should it be asked of them to go so far.

No one is suggesting running right out this very minute or hour and starting the next full blown hot civil war. Certainly, we must see if there is any way left to find a peaceful path forward, even though it does look highly doubtful, once one considers the current mission and platform of the Democratic Party is nothing less than the full destruction of the United States Republic, to be rebuilt in the image and vision of Marx and Mao. And with that in mind, if one cannot even hint that a day and a time may soon arrive that demands a righteous and violent armed response in defense of all that America is founded upon, then I suggest the cowards should go ahead and cower and die, with their heads stuck in their nether regions, while the rest of us pick up our rifles and prepare to fight for traditional America and the restoration of real freedom and liberty. 

Writing as I am on the evening of the anniversary of D-Day, I consider that so many fine, decent, honorable and brave Americans from Antietam to the Normandy invasion, generation after generation, have been willing to sacrifice everything in the name of Liberty and for this America we love so well and Her Founding Principles, in the face of enemies both foreign and domestic. Many fine young American men and women, hundreds of thousands and well over one million in number, have taken their last dying gasps believing that America embodied all the best ideas man has to offer and was worth the sacrifice it required to defend Her.

An Intro to ‘Liberty Violated’


Intro by John R. Houk

By Justin O. Smith

Posted January 3, 2020

 

I am still a huge Trump supporter! Nonetheless President Trump has supported and/or signed some anti-Conservative legislation lately. This has given rise to anger by many all-or-nothing Conservatives particularly in the areas of National Sovereignty and Spending (can you bursting out of control National Debt?).

 

My primary blog contributor Justin Smith appears to have joined the ranks of Conservatives with frankly legitimate concerns of recent Trump-supported legislation. I am in the camp where Trump pro-Patriot actions still outweigh the recent stupid Trump decisions. NEVERTHELESS, Trump support of globalist USMCA will quite probably lead to National Sovereignty and Rule of Law problems to our U.S. Constitution in the long run from an Originalist perspective (probably less concerns from Republic-destroying supporters of a Living Constitution perspective). A fantastic Originalist discourse is HERE.

 

On a personal level I’m not ready to toss President Trump under the bus for policy errors – YET. The source links that support Justin Smith’s commentary will show my support of Trump more than my disappointment. If Trump’s trend continues with bad decisions Impeachment will not be the solution. Rather your votes for Representatives and Senators will decide America’s fate. I for one will be voting Trump in 2020. Hopefully a 2024 Conservative POTUS candidate emerges supporting the Trump good actions while reversing any bad Trump decisions.

 

ANY election of the Dem Party’s current Left-Wing Globalist candidates in Congress or POTUS will doom the American Republic to a government telling people how to live whether they like it or not.

Liberty Violated

The Constitution Has Been Perverted and Bastardized – Could this Lead to the End of Liberty?

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/1/2020 12:28 AM

 

In an ever-changing, incomprehensible world the masses had reached the point where they would, at the same time, believe everything and nothing, think that everything was possible and that nothing was true. The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.” ~ Hannah Arendt

 

President Donald J. Trump has done some fine things in the domestic and foreign policy arenas, but even so, despite what the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for him believe, President Trump is not the best thing in America to have come along since sliced white-bread. Unfortunately, with each passing day, he has proven himself to be the Big Spending, Big Government fascist that I knew him to be in 2015. Regardless of his “good deeds”, any American, who stays silent in the face of this president’s current harmful executive orders and signed pieces of legislation, such as the recent Omnibus bill that he signed on December 20th 2019, is not a conservative or a patriot, and their silence does the nation a great disservice, no matter how “great” anyone may view Trump at this moment in history, and no matter Trump’s claim of the “conservative mantel”.

 

America has also just witnessed the passage of the worst so-called “trade agreement” ever negotiated in U.S. history on December 19th 2019 — the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement [USMCA] — with President Trump’s enthusiastic support, even though it was negotiated by Obama era bureaucratic holdovers, the same exact negotiators responsible for the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The USMCA kills individual liberty in America, facilitates Open Borders and subverts our Constitution and national sovereignty, as it also coincides nearly verbatim with approximately seventy percent of the TPP, an agreement that Trump once called “a fraud” and “one of the worst trade deals”.

 

If this is an example of President Trump’s great negotiating skills, America’s confidence in him is misplaced.

 

America was so focused on all the Congressional impeachment drama, that nobody seemed to notice when the so-called “good guys” and “bad guys” sat down to carve up another great portion of America’s wealth. After the House voted completely along party lines to impeach President Trump and the historic dust settled, both the fraudulent champions of Conservatism in the GOP and the Democratic Party Progressives, the mortal enemies of America’s Founding, set aside all differences to pass another record breaking spending bill, with a mere 24 hours of review and “discussion”, that is so massive, its 2100 pages had to be split into twelve packages — gifts, if you will — to conceal the fact that President Donald J. Trump, the “Conservative”, has just signed the two largest spending packages in United States History, totaling $1.4 trillion dollars.

 

Not one Congressman could have had the time to properly review this albatross in a 24 hour period. It isn’t any wonder that so much that is so detrimental to America’s well-being was allowed to creep into U.S. law via this outrageous act.

 

Although President Trump eradicated thousands of federal regulations, upon taking office, the results of many of his most recent bills are adding thousands more. Some of the detrimental effects will arise in the same way we saw through the struggle over property rights between the Hammond and Bundy Families and the Bureau of Land Management [BLM], since both the USMCA and this recent Omnibus bill undermine private property rights.

 

[Blog Editor: The BLM has been a tool of globalism and Marxist Environmentalists:

 

 

 

 

 

Excerpt:

 

 

As neighboring Wyoming’s economy, dependent on open pit coal mining, is perched on the edge of a free fall as the market for coal shrinks, Gianforte and Daines, the self-described high-tech mavens, seemed to have learned nothing.

 

Both are avidly supportive of not only Trump Administration attacks on environmental protection but some of the President’s political appointees whose ideology is sympathetic to selling off public lands and making them available to the equivalent of 21stcentury robber barons who again will treat the West as a natural resource colony.

 

 

Also in that list come all of the natural resource industries—timber, precious metals, coal, and to some degree, grazing. You may have heard how Acting Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt, in what can only be seen as a second tier appointment, recently named William Perry Pendley acting Director of the Bureau of Land Management. The move required no approval from the Senate and Pendley’s appointment may last only until this autumn.

 

Daines claims concerns about Pendley are “overblown” but how can he ignore the symbolism of the move, putting an anti-public lands ideologue in place to oversee public lands that figure at the heart of Western identity?

 

Historically, Pendley hostile attitude toward public land and federal land management has been demonstrated over years, as a force with the Mountain States Legal Foundation, which has advocated for getting rid of our federal public patrimony.  Recently, in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, an op-ed written by Ben Gabriel of the Montana Wilderness Association and Dave Chadwick of the Montana Wildlife Federation came with this headline: “Would we put an arsonist in charge of fire department?”

 

In a separate piece, New York Times columnist Timothy Egan wrote an essay titled “The Great Western Public Land Robbery” and subtitled “Trump’s pick to be the steward of America’s public lands doesn’t believe in public lands.”

 

 

“But you have to go pretty deep into the ranks of the Worst People to find someone equal to the man Donald Trump has now put in charge of your public lands — William Perry Pendley. The man now overseeing 245 million acres owned by every American citizen is a mad-dog opponent of the very idea of shared space in the great outdoors. He has spent his professional life chipping away — in court, in public forums, in statehouses — at one of the most cherished of American birthrights.”

 

… YOU CAN READ the whole anti-Trump Leftist diatribe HERE

 

Sounds like President Trump is still irking enviro-Marxists to me with the appointment of William Pendley.]

 

U.S. Map of Federal owned-controlled land

 

The Environmental Protection Agency received $9 billion, a $240 million increase over last year, and the Bureau of Land management received a two percent increase. And the Land and Water Conservation Agency received a whopping $500 million, no doubt so they can continue to tell Americans they can’t collect rain-water in barrels, as they have been aligned with UN Agenda 21 mandates for many years, advocating for the same “sustainable development” and the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, also a UN creation, that killed jobs and farming for decades in any area that utilized these policies; these policies are also currently a part of the anti-sovereignty, anti-American USMCA.

 

John Adams, the second U.S. President, once proclaimed: “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist.”

 

Exuding an abundance of brilliance and wisdom, James Madison asserted: “Government is instituted to protect property of every sort …. (including personal firearms) …. this being the end of government, that alone is not a just government, …. nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest.”

 

In light of the Democratic Party majority in Virginia recently stating their intentions to confiscate their citizens’ firearms through newly proposed illegitimate legislation and “law”, all Americans who value freedom and liberty should be highly alarmed by their statements, when viewed in conjunction with two sections of the December 20th Omnibus. In the name of fighting “gun violence”, this bill robs the American taxpayers’ and their grandchildren of $22.5 billion. This money is set aside for the FBI, ATF, DEA and the US Marshall Service, so they can target our right to keep and bear arms.

 

Neatly hidden within this 2100 page [217 page summary] monstrosity are a few lines with ominous implications. Along with granting the ATF and FBI greater finances to “combat gun violence”, the Center for Disease Control and the National Institute of Health are receiving $25 million for their new mission to gather data on gun violence as if it were an epidemic or national health crisis, in order to justify any future advocacy for stricter gun control initiatives and measures. And as the Democrats are salivating and wetting their pants over this new good fortune that’s dropped in their laps, the ATF — the militant branch of firearm control — receives nearly one billion dollars, an increase of $50 million over last year, to target “criminal firearm possession”, something that is ever increasingly becoming more subjective; the FBI will receive $131 million to run background checks, which sounds like far too much to just field calls on firearm purchases.  All of this aligns with Trump’s criminalization of bumpstocks and his amenable attitude to the circumvention of “due process” and “red flag laws”, as these federal agencies are receiving a pretty vague mandate from the Trump White House to “find illegal guns and take them”.

 

One should also note, although President Trump has been extremely successful at manipulating the economy and keeping America safe from her foreign enemies, he has violated the 4th Amendment by signing H.R. 76, that granted warrantless searches of houses and businesses in proximity to the D.C. Metrorail [Blog Editor: Justin is quite in HR 76 violates the 4th Amendment. Ergo I expect a SCOTUS challenge more than likely by a monied criminal caught in an HR 76 crime search], and by way of his signature on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Reauthorization, which now allows all U.S. citizens to be placed under NSA surveillance, along with the foreign nationals it was originally created to address, among several other failures regarding the Bill of Rights.

 

Among many other detrimental edicts, this albatross bill hands the Department of Energy three billion dollars to research more efficient means of producing renewable energy. It also pays additional funds to NASA, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Indian Affairs to purchase the less efficient options already available, in order to give further credence and legitimacy to the bunk science of “climate change”.

 

Please take note that on March 23rd 2018, after signing his first massive $1.3 trillion Omnibus bill, President Trump stated: “There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill. There are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill, but we were in a sense forced if we want to build our military …. I said to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again.”

 

In a manner reminiscent of President George H.W. Bush’s “read my lips, no new taxes” moment and seeming to make peace with The Swamp, President Trump issued the following statement on December 20th 2019, after signing the $1.4 trillion Omnibus: “Taken together, the government funding bills guarantee that critical priorities — investing in the military, ensuring Americans are more prosperous and healthy, delivering border security, engaging in criminal justice reform, and defending life — will be met in the upcoming year …”

 

It’s funny how fallin’ can feel like flying for a little while. [Blog Editor: This line was a part of many Justin Smith suggestions for a title. 😊]

 

Far too many Americans are cheerleading for Trump, when he has actually failed on several of his key campaign promises, such as securing the border and building the wall and ending Obamacare, with one key promise to reduce deficit spending. He could have accomplished all of this, when he had a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate; however, today, only work replacing 60 miles of old wall and 98 miles of new wall has been completed, and the American taxpayer is still paying for Obamacare taxes and subsidies for the uninsurable, even though the individual mandate was eradicated. And in the meantime, President Trump’s 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered taxes by trillions of dollars without reducing a dime of spending, and as a result, this administration has already added $5.6 trillion to the national debt.

 

[Blog Editor: To contrast Justin’s dour outlook President Trump failures:

 

 

 

 

Where is the fight for fiscal restraint? It never existed in the Democratic Party and it certainly no longer can be found in the Republican Party. The vote on this last Omnibus was 89 to 8, with three abstentions.

 

The “Great Economy” isn’t all a lie, but neither is the underlying truth being told about it. Many ordinary Americans are doing fairly well, as far as it goes, and as America is being hollowed out. Real economic decline is concealed by institutions that measure only areas that can be manipulated to give a positive result, such as the Consumer Price Index, the unemployment rate, Gross Domestic Product, and hundreds of financial numbers associated with net wealth and bank loans among other items.

 

Does everybody really not see the rise in childcare expenses, college tuition, and rent? They have risen at double-digit rates, while shrinkflation has reduced the quality and quantity of goods, even as the price has remained unchanged, or, in some cases, seen an increase. My own daughter, my youngest, makes a decent salary as an office manager for a great company, but she now pays a hefty $700 per month for daycare for my grandson, in order to be able to work, a significant cut to her salary.

 

Essentially, official statistics are manipulated to give a rosy picture of the economy, even as the nation’s treasury and the U.S. taxpayer are being robbed blind. Americans everywhere sense the disconnect, however, since significant factors aren’t measured, few objective indicators are documenting the decline all Americans experience in their everyday life.

 

And so, Americans are regularly told that they are doing fine, with manageable debt and rising incomes, when in the real world, their auto loan defaults are soaring, forty percent of America’s cancer patients are wiped out by the co-pays, and most “middle-class” households are one layoff or job loss away from default and going broke and to the poor house. [Blog Editor: THESE ARE LEGITIMATE concerns every American should take note! These should be at least a part of the issues in seeking a 2024 POTUS candidate. Depending on the Trump DOJ to hold crooked Dems accountable in 2020 and a Trump reelection, a law and order equal application to crooked Dems may also be a 2024 POTUS campaign issue. OTHERWISE an American Civil War might initiate between 2020 and 2024.]

 

In the fiscal year for 2019, the federal government spent $660 billion on interest payments. This amount very nearly equals the U.S. budget for Medicare, and it is more than what the U.S. spends on education, transportation, housing and agriculture combined. Federal debt held by the public is projected to double between today and 2049, rising from 78 percent of the gross domestic product to 144 percent. So, if fancy accounting is all that is hiding negative growth in the U.S. economy, times can’t be all too good.

 

The Trump tax cuts have really helped big corporations, by granting them subsidies, to help keep them healthy and solvent. This, in part, has benefited ordinary workers by ensuring companies can keep their jobs in place, but salaries have not increased to any significant level over the past decade. This is outrageous, once one considers that in each of the past two years, the U.S. Treasury has written checks of over $100 million checks to Amazon out of our tax dollars. [Amazon—and 56 Other Corporations—Took Your Tax Dollars; By Leo Gerard; Common Dreams; 4/19/19 – Do a page search for “Amazon” for the details.]

 

This helps President Trump grow his political power, because these windfall tax benefits received by large public companies like, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon translate directly into higher stock prices, and in Trump’s own words, “the stock market is my report card”. One can argue whether or not the economy is really doing great, but one can’t argue with a new high for the Dow Jones.

 

Therein lies the problem. Gradually over time, the American people have come to accept the redefining of “capitalism”, by the “elite” oligarchs, to mean “the stock is up”, through indoctrination and propaganda disseminated in the public education and university systems. Capitalism is no longer associated with Adam Smith’s invisible hand or Joseph Schumpeter’s risk-taking investments in the real economy, but simply reduced to only financial asset price inflation in real time, by any means necessary. And so, from the White House to the Federal Reserve Bank to corporate management, in the endless present, America is handed an endless series of policies and decisions in service to capitalism-as-financialization [Blog Editor: So far the closest I could find to the phrase is a reverse order such as “Financialization of Capitalism”. The term implies political power is in the hands of a few Corporate Finance companies ending the individualism of a Market Economy by which American Capitalism had its beginnings. From my brief reading Market Capitalism is transformed more akin to Market Communism with old terminology utilized to mislead the working common man. Example reading below this paragraph], where capital markets are operated as a political organization.

 

[Pro-Globalist/Socialist economic governance publications I gets the idea I believe Justin Smith is trying to alert readers that very well lead to the end of American Liberty if unaddressed:

 

 

 

A quote that should blowup the hairs on neck from the Communist mind-speak using the brainwashing term “Democracy” to justify Socialist-Marxist Globalization governance via a snake in grass economy:

 

Blinded by their own propaganda, theorists, politicians and the general public have embraced a course that threatens the stability and sustainability of Western society. Globalization, financialization, global mergers and acquisitions, shadow banking, international tax havens, the policy bias favoring energy-intensive automation, maximizing share-holder value, state capture, oligarchy and plutocracy have fueled soaring levels of economic inequality and insecurity. More importantly, they have shaken the roots of the social consensus that is the foundation of modern liberal democracies: polarizing and destabilizing society and throwing political processes into chaos. The notion that economics can be divorced and insulated from politics is an illusion. There is no economy without politics and law. A return to unbridled capitalism is threatening the culture of liberal values and the functioning of democratic institutions. … (The Political Economy of Neoliberalism and Illiberal Democracy; By Garry Jacobs; CadmusJournal.org; Volume 3 Issue 3 10/2017 – 20 page pdf)]

 

There isn’t any free market in this nation, using honest money on a level field, as educators and media would have one believe, and there hasn’t been a free market, since 1913 and the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank. Americans live and work in what can only be described as a fascist oligarchy, that relies on the premise of state and corporate partnership, managed trade for special interests. This is what is exacerbating our current economic situation, and taken in conjunction with massive bills that leave the growth of government unchecked, growing the power associated with large government at the expense of individual liberty, Congress is also undermined, while the Executive grows stronger.

 

[Blog Editor: Prior to election as President, Donald Trump’s international interests definitely placed him among international finance. BUT this makes him an enigma as an individual who donates his POTUS salary and has divested control of his international businesses to Make America Great or Keep America Great. At this point in Trump’s life bettering Americans appears more important than his place among the fascist oligarchs. BUT Trump’s recent legislative signatures reverse the MAGA course. If so, I’ll have to listen to Justin Smith say, “Told ya so”.]

 

And in the meantime, the Federal Reserve Bank is still flooding the repurchasing markets with cash and preparing to deliver bailouts of other markets, too. This is a sure sign that the nation is on the path to another economic crisis created by the Federal Reserve Bank’s manipulations of the economy.

 

Reckless policies have created trillions of dollars of bad investments, that will inevitably be liquidated and lead to an economic disaster. This disaster will make the Great Depression seem like a mild event, as our paper currency becomes worthless. Already the signals are rippling across the global markets, as the Euro and the Japanese yen have crashed in value, along with the Canadian dollar losing 26 percent of its value since 2013. The U.S. dollar is currently just the healthiest currency on its way to a death-bed.

 

Designed for a moral society, the imperfect Constitution has been repeatedly dealt thousands of hammer blows on its imperfections by America’s enemies, to the point it is ready to crack and fail. The Constitution has been perverted and bastardized by the nation’s communists, anarchists [Thoughts on Anarchism: HERE, HERE & HERE], Muslims, activist black robes, globalists [Globalist issues examples affecting the Constitution: HERE, HERE & HERE] and statists [Perspectives about Statists: HERE & HERE], all for “the general welfare” of America’s ruling class oligarchs. Its inherent negative power over learned and moral citizens has been fully subverted to the positive endorsement of the whims of those who would be kings and tyrants, incompetents one and all.

 

Americans must find a way back to the moral underpinnings that first led the way for the country, those self-evident truths and the knowledge that God-Given Rights and the Bill of Rights are not to be subverted, that they are inalienable [Blog Editor: To the nitpickers of the usage of unalienable or inalienable, my frame of thought is they are the same]. And as such, refuse to be led any longer by men who would rule over us rather than serve us. Trumpet one’s refusal to obey any rogue government seeks to keep us enslaved at the altar of the state through a fiat currency, financial system and debt Ponzi scheme that is a criminal fraud stealing money from hard-working Americans, and refuse to obey any and all who seek to disarm us by coercion and force.

 

Most of the aforementioned facts could have seen completely different results that supported liberty in every way, if only America had a leader at Her helm who truly loved Liberty and understood its principles, as the Founders understood them. Some of this, people will suggest, was due to opposition in his own party, which is only true in regard to Obamacare’s survival. The rest has been enthusiastically advocated and facilitated by President Donald J. Trump, who never was a conservative and never will be a true conservative, as he continues to have his love affair with the progressive globalist views he held so close in his youth, while Democrats and RINOs make America pay the price in Her slow death by a thousand cuts from anti-American policy, treachery, and treasonous bills. [Blog Editor: The last sentence was also a part of a title suggestion by Justin Smith]

 

Today, America and Her people are facing their most dangerous times, as the far left is positioning themselves for a hard tyrannical push to control all, resources, wealth and people, by a select few, who see themselves as “experts, after President Trump’s second term, utilizing the current existing system. These are the advocates of controlled allocation for society, centrally planned socialism, commanded by a top-down Bolshevik-style Central Committee controlled by the few. And should the ranks of Liberty loving American Patriots keep decreasing, as in recent decades, and fail to halt the Democratic Party communists’ success, it will mark the start of a thousand years of darkness and the end of liberty.

Just the other day I had a conversation with my 3rd grade grandson about his reading regimen. He was trying to squirm out of his daily reading by telling me he forgot to bring his book from school.

 

I told him to get a book from home. He tried to tell me we didn’t have any. I knew better. So I told him we many versions of the Bible to read.

 

He told me his teacher said he couldn’t read religious books.

 

I said, “Tough! Get a Bible. I’m going to have to talk to your Public School teacher about Religious Freedom in the First Amendment.”

 

My wife saved our grandson’s bacon by assigning something I can’t recall right now. BUT it really chapped my hide that a Public School teacher said reading the Bible was unacceptable.

 

It’s a good thing I didn’t fly-off the handle. I checked my email later in the day and had received an email from the 3rd grade teacher. Lo and behold – she was asking why I hadn’t been turning in my grandson’s reading record.

 

Oops, my bad I had not kept up with that. Reading the email further reading suggestions were included. Guess what. Religious literature was a part of the approved reading. Now the word “Bible” was not used specifically, but as far as I am concerned “religious” included the Bible.

 

I wish my grandson was as bright in doing homework as he is in slipping out of homework.

 

I was thinking about all this Religious Freedom vs. the mythical Separation of Church and State (See Also HERE and HERE)and I ran into the article I am cross posting below from United Families International about preserving Religious Freedom for our children or in our case grandchildren that we are raising.

PRESERVING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR OUR CHILDREN

 

By Diane Robertson

United Families International

 

This week I received an email from Alliance Defending Freedom, a group of lawyers who defend religious freedom, that began thus:

 

“Dear Diane,

 

Do you ever wonder what the future will look like for your children and grandchildren?

 

We live in a world where religious freedom for future generations cannot be assumed. It must be fought for—every day.”

 

As I have studied the issues, written for UFI, discussed the issues with friends, family, and strangers, and written and spoken with lawmakers, I have often thought, “Have we so little compassion for the destinies of our own children that we can feel just about ignoring the destruction of the freedoms we have enjoyed?”

 

There are so many reasons people give to ignore the current erosion of religious freedom– we are too busy; losing our freedom is inevitable; religious freedom marginalizes people with other beliefs; religion itself is bigoted and old fashioned, and so on. The fight for religious freedom is not a friendly fight.

 

It’s true that those on the side of religious freedom are continually disparaged. They are told that their views are based on bigotry and hate for certain groups of people. It’s hard to stand up against such demeaning accusations. And it is certainly not true for most. Most people fighting for religious freedom do so because they believe that everyone should be allowed to live and work according to the dictates of their conscience. They believe in property rights, freedom of belief, and freedom of conscience. They oppose laws that limit the ability of people to live, work, and worship as they believe.

 

In the same email mentioned above, ADF reported that their:

 

“Clients are regular people who were going about their daily business—work, school, church—until they were confronted by a culture intolerant of their faith. A Christian printer faced a boycott and lawsuit because he politely declined to print t-shirts promoting the local ‘pride’ festival. A decorated firefighter was suspended because of a Christian book he wrote in his spare time. A college student was threatened with expulsion because of her Christian beliefs. A church was told that their house of worship is no longer sacred, but just another public accommodation.”

 

These are a few of the ways religious freedom is eroding in North America. It has hit some individuals hard. There are forces working to establish laws that would limit what churches can do in their buildings and even what religious leaders are allowed to preach. There are forces working to regulate private property as if it were public or government property.

 

To help our children and grandchildren enjoy the same freedoms we have enjoyed, we must study the issues, understand current events, and speak up. Losing our religious freedom is only as inevitable as we allow it to be. If enough people act, freedom can still be preserved for the generations to come.
