The Goal Is To Destroy All Constitutional Culture

1 Shares

In America, our cultural method of debate tends to divide individual issues into carefully separated spheres of discussion. This hyperfocus on single issues, from gun rights to illegal wars to invasion of privacy, draws us away from looking at the bigger interconnected picture, otherwise known as the “macro.” Each social or political conflict is compartmentalized by the mainstream, the dots are left isolated and the overwhelming overall threat to our foundational principles is marginalized.

The problem with this civic philosophy is that the general public is left without peripheral vision and unequipped to comprehend that there is a process in motion, an overarching plan that is eating away at the edges of our liberty from every angle, one small piece at a time. That is to say, we have been conditioned to obsess over the pieces and ignore the plan.

I want you to imagine the globalist establishment and the useful socialist idiots it employs as a hive of ants lurking in the grass around a bountiful picnic basket you (or your forefathers) worked very hard to procure. Now, one ant snatches a single crumb and races away, and you think to yourself that losing that one crumb is not such a sacrifice. A few more ants pilfer crumbs, and you shrug it off. A dozen more arrive, and you start to worry a little but are still too lazy to pull out the Raid. The rest of the hive sees your apathy and attacks, gobbling everything in a swarm of single-minded destruction. Left with nothing, you sit dumbfounded and hungry, wondering where you went wrong. The truth is, you went wrong with the first ant.

Not only are personal wealth and property ransacked by the collective in this way, but also personal freedom.

Every time a smaller attack on liberty is exposed or openly announced by the cult of statism, elitists invariably respond with a false face of rationality and common sense. They claim that they respect the line. They claim that they will take only the minimum. They claim that they are pursuing only a reasonable compromise. They expound on the “virtues” of their motives. They sing songs of unity, brotherhood and the greater good. They appeal to our diplomatic side; and if that doesn’t work, they try to shame us instead for being “selfish” or “ignorant” of so-called “social progress.” But this never has been and never will be about social progress.

Their goal is not to introduce greater understanding or awareness. It is not about public good or public safety. And at the very core, it is not about truth. If they cared about truth or principle and if their objectives were honorable, they would not feel the need to constantly lie, cheat, steal, manipulate and threaten in an effort to impose their own worldview on the rest of us. If their purpose was as righteous as they pretend, then deceit and subversion should be beneath them. Their philosophy should be able to carry itself, without their convoluted efforts.

The power elites and the people who blindly follow them are not interested in being on the right side. They are interested only in being on the winning side, and the two are certainly not the same. In the end, the result they covet most is not to achieve compromise on Constitutional ideals, but to achieve total and unequivocal destruction of those ideals. They seek to erase our heritage from history, along with those of us who value it. They want to annihilate Constitutional culture.

Through the efforts of the liberty movement, many Americans are now at least loosely aware of such issues as the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows the designation of anyone — including American citizens — as enemy combatants subject to the laws of war, thus destroying the Constitutional right to due process and trial by jury. They have witnessed the vicious trampling of the 4th Amendment and our right to privacy through legislation like the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They have been confronted with the gross tyranny of Barack Obama’s executive assassination lists and predator drone fetish. They are aware of the existence of Department of Defense efforts to remove all vestiges of Posse Comitatus and allow standing military authority in the United States through the U.S. Northern Command (Northcom).

All of these things are clearly part of a violent war on our Constitutional rights, but what about the more subtle poison being introduced under the surface? The first place to look is always in your child’s school.

In Duvall County, Fla., the father of a 10-year-old boy discovered his son had been asked by a teacher to write and sign this statement as part of a school project: “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”

When questioned on the purpose of directing fourth-graders to sign such a statement, the school district argued that the students participated in the activity of their own free will and that the lesson was designed to “create an awareness of the five rights contained in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution” and help students “determine their opinions on which rights they value most and least.”

First of all, let’s be honest; I went through public schooling, and anyone else who went through it knows as well as I do that almost nothing within the public school system is treated as voluntary. Threats, fearmongering and mob mentality are all used by State teachers all across the country daily to manipulate and terrorize children into submitting to the program. As a nostalgic refresher, re-examine the incident in a North Carolina school in which a teacher screamed down a student who criticized Obama, claiming that people “could be arrested” for speaking ill of the President.

Secondly, if the teacher in Duvall County was looking to encourage students to “think critically” about their Constitutional rights, then perhaps it would have been helpful to educate them on what those rights are. Unfortunately, the children had not been given practical lessons on their rights before being asked to abandon them for “safety.”

This is a perfect example of the indoctrination process in action. While the gun rights issue has brought the politicization of public schools out in the open, with federalized education centers punishing children across the Nation for merely playing with imaginary guns or talking about toy guns, the real target is not the gun issue for the establishment.  The real target is all Constitutional thought.

Perhaps this is why the methodology of home-schooling has been so demonized by the mainstream, and why Ron Paul’s latest home-schooling initiative is already being attacked as “Christian fundamentalism.” The real reason the establishment’s panties are in a twist is simple; they do not like the idea of parents being able to compose their child’s own curriculum and, thus, remove anti-Constitutional conditioning from their daily lives.

The erasure of Constitutional culture has spread far beyond schooling, however.

The city of New Rochelle, N.Y., has demanded a local veterans’ post take down its Gadsden flag, a flag in existence since the Revolutionary War, because it has been adopted as a symbol of the Tea Party. The city council, led by Democratic Mayor Noam Bramson, voted to remove the flag after voicing concerns about the flag’s message.

Obama sycophant and hardcore big-government mouthpiece Bill Maher this week stated that the left (neo-liberals) needs to stop being afraid of its true goal in the gun debate — to dissolve the 2nd Amendment — rather than play at compromise.

“I’m so sorry, but this is the problem with the gun debate — it is that it’s a constant center-right debate,” Maher said. “There’s no left in this debate. Everyone on the left is so afraid to say what should be said, which is the Second Amendment is bullshit. Why doesn’t anyone go at the core of it?”

My response would be: “Yes, please do admit your true goals, gun grabbers and opponents of civil liberties. At least be honest about your fascist intentions so that we can stop playing games and have a real eye to eye debate (or fight) on the subject.:

And finally, NASCAR has come under siege by anti-2nd Amendment legislators as well as the media in general for allowing the National Rifle Association to endorse races. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) called on broadcasters to block transmissions of the NRA 500 because it would bring national attention to gun rights while the Senate is legislating for gun control (which, in his opinion, is bad).

Perhaps this is purely coincidental, but the timing of this stance against NASCAR’s support of gun culture has arisen right as Oath Keepers, a Constitutional organization dedicated to teaching current serving military, veterans and law enforcement about civil liberties and the affirmation of their oath, announced it is working with racecar driver Jeffrey Earnhardt to bring an Oath Keepers-sponsored vehicle to the NASCAR track.

While some people may not care less about NASCAR or even the 2nd Amendment, I would point out that through the gun issue, the establishment is ultimately undermining the holy grail of the 1st Amendment. If gun rights speech and culture can be silenced in the name of “safety” or “compassion,” then why not any other belief?

Incidents like these by themselves do not necessarily seem like an imminent threat to the freedoms of average citizens; but, taken together as a flurry of strategic movements, they represent a full spectrum attack on the very pillars of our founding structure. Throughout history, when conquerors wished to fully dominate a population, they would seek to slowly subsume the people’s mythology and principles. They would attempt to co-opt cultural ideas and values, twisting them into something completely different or wiping them from memory altogether. When the people lose their traditions and heritage, they become easier to mold and rule. This is exactly what is happening in the United States today: an ideological colonization that views Constitutional life as a mortal enemy and hopes to obliterate it from the pages of time.

        Jacob has hit the nail on the head. Our government and its constitution is “By The People For The People” If we choose to correct, amend, update, our laws it is the Power Of The People to do so.
        When “We The People” observe that the NRA’s arms race is to be regulated then yes we can amend the flaws that produced this error to exist. Neo right wing nuts will have to increase their intelligence to keep up with the majority. Until then they will obey the laws of the land… No exceptions..

    “Throughout history, when conquerors wished to fully dominate a population, they would seek to slowly subsume the people’s mythology and principles.”

    Which of the following do you believe:

    1.) The framers of the Constitution opposed a strong central government.

    2.)The framers hated taxes.

    3.)The framers were impartial statesmen, above interest driven politics.

    4.) The framers were guided by clear principles of limited government.

    5.) James Madison sired the Constitution.

    6.) The Federalist Papers tell us what the Constitution really means.

    7.) The Founding Fathers gave us the Bill of Rights.

    8.) By discovering what the framers intended or how the founding generation understood the text, we can determine how each provision of the Constitution must be applied.

      Going GALT Definition:
      Expression for undergoing a voluntary financial strike or decrease in income. An individual might choose to do this in order to protest the amount of money going to the government, or to protest what they feel are unfair taxes (if they earn less, they will be taxed less, therefore hurting the government). The term is taken from a character in Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged”; the main character John Galt leads a movement where the wealthiest individuals leave their jobs for low-paying jobs in order to protest the socialist economy.

        It would appear that neither the source of the definition of

        actual understanding of the point of “Atlas Shrugged” or the
        purpose of it’s main character………..and there is no more to
        read, regarding this definition ( of the expression ) from the
        link, which means its etymology is either absent or unknown.

        Clearly a non sequitur as well as an ad hominem…..in addition
        to the typical w.i.f.i. response.

        One wonders why a “freedom fighter” would choose to avoid
        the questions posed…..regarding the “constitution”, in a discussion
        about “destroying a constitutional culture”, while seemingly
        compelled to respond with “logical fallacy” in a manner which
        entirely irrelevant to the topic under discussion?

      Galt has little to no knowledge of our history. Observe how in Washington’s administration, Hamilton TAXED and bonded, their way out of debt from the revolutionary war. As to the framers being opposed to a central government was a constant debate amongst them. Adam was for it and Abe resolved the issue.
      Opposed strong government? Where does he ever get that nonsense. Go back and observe what Hamilton and Washington did about those that threaten the newly formed democracy. Militia to oppose the farmers come to mind. Hmmm Clear principles? Kinda of an arbitrary statement. They were less clear than our present day scenarios. DUH that’s why we have AMENDMENTS! LOL even the “Given” Bill of Rights had to be redefined back in the 60’s to give value to the words of the constitution when it states that “All Men Are Created Equal” Kinda of fuzzy on that clear principle stuff that Galt just throws out with complete lack of thought. Smaller government? Oh sure as the competing nations grow all about us. Less regulation and or laws would be appreciated by lawless criminals. Less regulations is appreciated by Wall Street. Observe what that cost us in 1929 and 2008. Galt needs to return to History 101.

    The Gadsen flag is a part of Americas history. Unfortunately, just like the Swastika was a symbol of peace and unity, the Gadson flag now symbolizes the radicalized element of the extreme right in America. That same element that hates anyone who wishes to defend what America REALLY is. America is NOT a “christian” nation. It is NOT a “laze faire” economy. America is actually a great experiment – started by people who were questioning the very foundations of human liberty. America is whatever 50% +,1 of the people say it is.

            You are wrong. Big business and big banks have been primarily supporting the Democrats for decades – it is a myth that the Democrats are the party of the working man and the little guy.

            If those companies give token money to Democrats as you say but they love the Republicans, what they are doing is dealing with predators(the Democrats) and throwing scraps to them (the Democrats) to keep them busy. It is a means of survival when you deal with predators.

        Chocopot, ,this is America of the American Constitution which makes no mention of a “main stream media”. It does speak to freedom of speech and freedom of the press! The media can form any opinion it chooses as to the best policy for the people! It is no more obligated to be conservative than it is to be liberal or moderate, It is like your opinion, hopefully an “educated” choice. It is more important that it remain free than it be opinionated one way or another as in Fox News or New York Times.
        Our education system has shot objects farther into space and developed better military protection than any other education system yet developed! It has some problems because it is run by humans and ALL humans have problems! EVEN CONSERVATIVE HUMANS!!
        Mr. Smith, in this article, laments what he says is an education system that does not turn out “cookie cutter” Libertarians! The Libertarian philosophy is supported by less than 2% of the voting public. WHY ARE WE OBLIGATED TO CHANGE OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM TO SATISFY 2% OF THE PEOPLE?? SEE ABOVE FOR JUST SOME OF THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF OUR PRESENT SYSTEM.
        He champions Paul Rand and home schooling! Wonderful!! Go for it! You can have your own religious training and can stress all the political agenda you choose in YOUR living room! BUT DON’T BE SURPRISED THAT WHEN YOUR CHILDREN GO TO COLLEGE THAT THE FACT THEY CAN WRITE A BEAUTIFUL PARAGRAPH ABOUT MATTHEW, MARK , LUKE, AND JOHN SERVES THEM REAL WELL IN ALGEBRA!

          • Elton Robb

            KG has fallen, hook line and sinker, for what these Decision Makers are saying. And these same people absolutely believe that we are cattle and they are the cattle drivers. KG is nothing but a beast of the field to them. To be led about by the nose with a nose ring through his nose. Look at what he’s saying:

            “Workers should unite and throw off the shackles of the man they work for!” Or “Capitalism is evil!” Jesus promised that there will be no King over the land of America — both North and South. This means power is to be invested into the people and the populace. No Decision Maker has the right to declare himself a King over us. KG wants the Workers to rise up and divest themselves of their power and hand it over to the Decision Makers, all in the name of fake freedom and security.

            KG seems to think that the Decision Makers would treat him kindly and they will treat all others as kindly. However, this isn’t so. The Decision Makers believe him and us to be in as so far as to be nothing more than Cattle. And those that rally the people to their New World Order are nothing more than Useless Idiots.

            The First Coming was a spiritual salvation. It was facilitated so that we can discover who we really are and achieve our greatest potential. The second coming of the Son of Man is a Physical Salvation. The purpose of our Lord’s war against these scum who would set up the New World Order should be evident, to wipe them off the face of the Earth. The Difference between the Decision Maker and Christ is that Christ works hard to show our Value in his eyes. For instance, some of his Saints will be arrayed in garments of gold.

            The Decision Makers have no obligation to see us thrive, they want us to work hard to earn our keep, while they control 80% of the world’s gold and silver. If KG wants to put wealth into the hands of the people, he is greatly deceived by turning to Communism as the salvation. If he knew how much Christ viewed the worth of his soul, he wouldn’t be here, spitting out lies.

          • rocketride

            I can find little to fault in your analysis.

            The big joke the Decision Makers, be they “communist”, “fascist”, “corporatist”, or whatever., are all sharing in at our expense is that for all their rhetoric about being “progressive”, they’re really all attempts by the ruling class to stuff the enlightenment and especially the American revolution back in the bottle, and therefore utterly reactionary. To my knowledge, the first to point this out explicitly in prose was Ayn Rand, although Rudyard Kipling alluded to it earlier in, among other places, the poem “MacDonough’s Song”.

            At any rate, they’re but different heads of the same beast, their rapacious maws all lead to the same stomach, and the common goal remains the enslavement, to greater or lesser degree, of everyone outside of the elite. The “banksters” of Wall Street, the hippies-turned-tyrant in DC, and the “butchers of Beijing” are all playing the same game. This is how and why the “People’s Republic” of China was able to go from being a full-on communist dictatorship to being a full-on fascist one without even having to buy new stationery. The only real difference is how far they’re willing to go to pretend that they’re immune to the laws of economics. The reason you never see them laugh is that, given what they’re getting away with, if they ever started, they’d never stop.

          • Elton Robb

            Al the thirteen tribes of Israel are on American Soil and make their home here. There are thousands to back this up.

            Israel was to have a new home: II Samuel 7:10; and I Chronicles 17:9 Israel got to America finally.
            I Chronicles 16:13-22

            Israel was to be Northwest of Palestine: Isaiah 49:1 British Isles, 3-8,14-20, and Jeremiah 3:18 land of the north.

            Israel was to have a new name: Isaiah 62:2, Christians Acts 11:26, Isaiah 65:9-18 another name, and Hosea 2:17

            Israel was to have foolish leaders. Isaiah 28:1-19 that cause fallout to come morning by morning, by day and by night.

            Israel was to live in the islands (England) and coasts of the earth: Isaiah 41:1; 42:10,19,24,25; 49:1-3, 51:5; and Jeremiah 31:7-10

            Israel was to have a GREAT name. Great Britain. Genesis 12:2

            Israel was to lose all trace of her lineage, the ten tribes became lost to themselves: Isaiah 42:16-19; Hosea 1:9-10, 2:6; Romans 11:25 a very plain example.

            Israel was to spread abroad and colonize the world like the British did: Genesis 28:14,49:22; Deuteronomy 32:8, 33:17; Psalms 2:8; Isaiah 26:15, 27:6, 54:2; Zechariah 10:8-9

            Israel was to colonize the desolate places of the earth: Isaiah 35:1, 43:1,9-12, 49:8, 54:3, 58:11-12

            Israel was to become a company of many nations:(USA) Genesis 17:4-6 ,16; 35:11; 48:19; Ephesians 2:12 Nations of old Europe. And the world.

            Israel was to spread to the North, East, West, South, just like the N E W S. Genesis 28:14; Isaiah 43:5-6 Numbers 2:25,3,18,10, NEWS. Spread over the world.

            Israel was to have all the land they needed: Deuteronomy 32:8 and Genesis 28:14 Big USA coast to coast. Boarder to boarder.

            Israel was to set their slaves free: (USA) Deuteronomy 15:7,11,12; Psalms 72:4; Isaiah 42:6-9; 49:9; 58:6

            Israel was to be a great and mighty nation:(USA)Genesis 12:2, 18:18; Deuteronomy 4:7-8

            Israel was to have good crops and land and water. Cattle, and rain in the proper season. Dew and sunshine. Corn and wine. Genesis 27:28; Deuteronomy 8:7-11, 28:11-12, 33:13-14,28 RUSSIA AFTER CATTLE AND CORN.

            Israel was to be in the land of the everlasting hills, separate. The everlasting hills begin at the top of the earth in the Alaskan Range, down through Canada as the Rocky Mountains, the USA as the Rockies and Sierra Nevadas, through Mexico as the Sierra Madre, Central America as the Sierra Madres, South Americas as the Andes, to the tip of Chile and Argentina at the bottom of the world. Everlasting Hills from top to bottom. Genesis 49:25-26

            Israel was to have great mineral wealth and oil, Deuteronomy 33:13-19

            Israel was to lend to other nations, US gives and lends Billions in foreign aid. Deuteronomy 15:6, 28:12,

            Israel was to be feared by other nations. Deuteronomy 2:25, 4:8-9, 28:9-10

            Israel was to be a great many people, about 84% of the USA are “white” Caucasian people from Europe. Plus the hundreds of millions of other “white people” around the world. Genesis 13:16, 15:5, 22:17, 24:60, 26:4,24, 28:3,14, 32:12, 49:22; Isaiah 10:22; Hosea 1:10; Zechariah 10:7-8

            Israel was to bless ALL the people on the earth. USA does. Genesis 28:14; 22:18; Isaiah 43:10-12,21-22 The USA is the great blessing to the world. The whole world follows USA trends, fashion, music, movies, etc.

          I don’t understand. What’s “evil” about protecting workers right to collectively organize? What’s so evil about providing for poor and disabled? What’s so evil about providing education for our children?

          So, it’s OK to bomb people in the middle of the night. And it’s OK to kill and maim people in the name of Oil. But it’s NOT OK to provide for your own citizens?

          • chocopot

            Try reading some history, like the history of Leftist movements during the 20th century (Soviet Union, Red China, Castro’s Cuba, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc.) and you will find true evil: Leftist governments during the 20th century were responsible for the murder of more than 100 million innocents during that period. That is fact. The Left is evil.

          • KG

            So what about the “contras”? And, of course, we had to keep El Salvador from becoming communist, so the CIA trained death squads to kill any opposition. Oh, and let’s not forget the granddaddy of Right Wing fame – Adolph Hitler. Oh yea, it’s only the “left” that’s bad.

          • chocopot

            The numbers involved in those operations, as wrong as they were, are miniscule compared to what the Left has done – and is still doing. As for Nazi Germany, that is one of the great successes of the Left’s historical revisionism at which they succeed because the Left controls most of the media and nearly all of the education establishment. Naziism, National Socialism, was a movement of the Left, not the Right. What part of SOCIALISM don’t you get? As for fascism (of which Naziism was a part), that was also a movement of the Left – not the Right. Read Jonah Goldberg’s excellent book, Liberal Fascism, to understand how we have all been lied to for many decades about the true nature of fascism. I stand by what I said already: the Left is the true definition and example of EVIL.

          • Jeff

            Jonah Goldberg is a Mama’s Boy and is completely full of cr*p. The Nazis ran just like the tea party folks – against modernism and liberalism. They hated the Weimar Republic because it was seen as weak and liberal. For anyone to equate liberal democracy with the Nazis is the ultimate in intellectual dishonesty. Hitler hated not just Jews and liberals. He also hated modern art, modern literature, and modern science. Sound like anyone you know? He’d be quite content with the right wing of the Repugs.

          • chocopot

            The only one full of crap here is you – you have no idea what you’re talking about. More left-wing historical revisionism. And what you refer to as liberal democracy is nothing of the sort – it is the road to communist dictatorship.

          • Jeff

            Ironically, Hitler would have been the first to agree! Your argument that fascism was a movement of the Left may have made some sense in 1922. After all, Mussolini started as vaguely a socialist. But by 1933 and certainly by 1936, there was no question that fascism and Nazism were movements of the right. Remember 1936 and the Spanish Civil War? It’s where George Orwell got his start fighting for the elected socialist government. Remember our Abraham Lincoln Brigade? It was considered the last great cause. And who was on the other side fighting for repression and warming up for WWII? Let’s see. Franco, Mussolini, and Hitler. The revisionism here is your placing Hitler on the left when all his political instincts, and all his modern day imitators, are clearly on the right.

          • chocopot

            You still don’t know what you are talking about. Try reading Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg. It is thoroughly researched and documented. Fascism is a Leftist movement. They fought the Communists merely because they were two separate groups each seeking control for themselves. Their differences are far fewer than their similarities.

          • Jeff

            I’ve read actual scholarly work by authors not published by their right wing mothers. The Nazis didn’t fight just the Communists. Their primary fight was with liberal democracy.

            The Nazis didn’t fight just the Communists. Their primary fight was with liberal democracy.

            As opposed to the communists who had, of course, no dispute with liberal democracy?

          • Jeff

            True communists really didn’t have an issue with liberal democracy per se. Marx praised capitalism for freeing people from the idiocy of rural life. He believed that socialism and communism were the next stage in societal evolution. He was wrong because he failed to take into account the innovation needed to maintain a growing economy and also the ability of capitalism to thwart revolution by amending the social contract to afford workers rights and to lessen the shock of failure. It is not an accident that many consider FDR the savior of capitalism as the country faced a legitimate communist threat in the 30s. The New Deal softened the rough edges of capitalism and made the system more palatable to the masses.

            In the societies that underwent communist revolutions, not one of them replaced a liberal democracy. And not one occurred anyplace that Marx would have predicted. He thought a country had to have a relatively advanced economy before a true communist revolution could occur. He was thinking primarily of England, Germany, and maybe the United States. He certainly wasn’t thinking of Russia, China, Viet Nam, or Cuba.

            Certainly at this stage in its evolution, China more closely resembles a fascist model than a communist one. They have tight state control over citizens but relatively little control over businesses. They have no environmental regulations, no real regulation of business, and hardly any social welfare system. Sounds like Tea Party Utopia except for the part about not being able to breathe so good.

          • Charlie

            Well,,,for all you WW2 experts,,, can you give historical documentation to answer a few questions ,,,such as,,,did Hitler know much about The Holy Bible?… Why did most of the good German people like Adolph Hitler ?…………………………

          • http://www.facebook.com/jeff.samuels.127 Jeff

            There is an entire library of literature on the subject, but I don’t know that anyone has the definitive answer. Certainly it has a lot to do the economic position Germany was in following WWI and on Hitler’s ability to convince people he had all the simple answers the “pointy-headed intellectuals” in the Weimar Republic didn’t. Certainly, Hitler could draw on a reservoir of anti-Semitism so that many were conditioned to believe, or at least consider, Hitler’s claim that the Jews were responsible for “stabbing Germany in the back” and surrendering in WWI. Ironically, while all European countries at the time displayed a good amount of anti-Semitism (as did the U.S. to a lesser degree), the Jews were more “assimilated” in Germany than anywhere else – to the point where most Jews thought of themselves as Germans and not as Jews. That was not the case in most of Europe.

            Why was Hitler able to convince people he had the answers? Many were frightened by modern thought, modern literature, art, and science. The Nazis were able to point to a simpler time when the Germans had been powerful and he was able to convince them he could return them to that earlier, simpler time. Sound familiar?

            The word “semite” refers to people of Middle Eastern origin, both Jews and Arabs. But the term Anti-Semitism is used to connote anti-Jewish sentiment. A page of history is often worth a volume of logic. I don’t believe Hitler was any kind of Semite.

            The word “semite” comes from the best son of Noah ,a Man named “Shem”,,,see that at Genesis 9:18… ALL! basic white people ARE from the lineage of Shem… Why would any white Man be against himself (anti-semitism)???
            BUT,,, a split in the Shem lineage happened at Esau and Jacob, see that at Genesis 25:25… So,,, today,,,the bad white guys are from the lineage of Esau Edom,,,and the good white guys are from the lineage of Jacob Israel… Esau and some of his lineage , ticked off God ,,,so,,, God “Cursed” them “Forever”, see that at Malachi 1:1–5………………. Better check the lineage of Hitler very close,,you might improve your labels some….

            I’ve never read anything by Ann Coulter either, but I know she’s full of cr*p because I’ve heard her speak. Ditto for Jonah Goldberg. The idea of liberal fascism is idiotic as the fascists and the Nazis hated the liberal democracies, infant and weak though they were, that they destroyed to gain power. Hitler hated the idea of representative democracy, individual rights, free speech, modern art, modern literature, modern science (e.g. “Jewish physics”), and all “liberal” ideas. If you can make a cogent argument for the idea of “liberal fascism” as any more than a cheap marketing tool, maybe I’ll take a look at the book.

            Hitler and the National German Socialists Workers motto was:

            “First Red (International Socialists – i.e., Communists),
            then Brown (National Socialists)”.

            Right wing? Hardly! Perhaps there is value in learning how to interpret events accurately.

            What part of the phrase “National SOCIALIST” eludes your comprehension?

          • rocketride

            In among the old Stalinist disinformatsiya you’ve been slinging (specifically that nazism, and fascism in general, is a “right-wing”, rather than “left-wing” movement– as chocopot put it, “What part of SOCIALISM don’t you get?”), you actually have about half of a point, there. Fascism is not the cure for communism, and communism is not the cure for fascism. They’re the same drooling, syphilitic cannibal wearing different clothing. That said, given what a bunch of murderers the guys the contras were fighting were, unleashing ‘death squads’ upon them is just not something I can get all that worked up about.

            Provide for yourself, then share your wealth with whomever you wish.
            I will say for the 10th time: I have visited countries where they confiiscate everyone’s money ( except your heroes that RUN the country – they stay VERY wealthy ) and ‘provide for their own people’. Those countries are broke and their people are starving.
            Eventually, you run out of other people’s money and it creates even more poor people.

            How about protecting the employers and businessmen, KG. Without them you would not have work or life. First of all your Leftist(Liberal) compatriots are Liars and Thieves. You demand things that you did not earn because you took on work under false pretenses. The employers and businessmen spelled out the conditions for the jobs they offered and they were lied to when the employee agreed to take on the work but then did not meet the conditions.
            Why are you concerned for other people’s children when you didn’t create them? When I was growing up, there was a shepherd who had a sheep who could not get pregnant but when lambing time came she would try to steal a lamb from its mother and the mother had to defend herself and the lamb from the rogue sheep. Does that not remind you of how the educational institutions came about? Education has nothing to do with gathering bits of information, neglecting the wisdom, thinking and reasoning. Wisdom,thinking and reasoning you learn in the school of life, everybody can do it except the Leftists.

            Socialism means the way a society conducts itself. There are two types of socialism, voluntarily and involuntarily. In a voluntary society, we conduct ourselves as you said, taking care of each other, WITHOUT GOVERNMENT BEING INVOLVED. Then there’s involuntary socialism. This is when the government takes the people’s wealth and distributes it as government sees fit. We call that fascism or communism.

          • Nadzieja Batki

            You don’t want either variety of Socialism. It is either tyranny by government edict or you have the tyranny of busybody do gooders descending on people who they believe are not so capable of living their lives and then making them prisoners of the “societies for doing something or to prevent something”. Read of England in the late 1800 and US in the late 1800 and 1900 when Socialism spread like weeds.

            How can one group, workers, have rights on the property of another group, employer. It does not make sense unless somebody’s mind is twisted. If they are unhappy with the working conditions they should not get the job in the first place or quit afterwards.

            Helping poor and disabled is a moral issue and morality cannot be legislated. Government cannot tell people to help other people. And when they do want to help it should be their decision who to help and how much. When government confiscates from some to help others it is not help. I can help whole world with other people’s money.

            Government schooling is also taking from some and give to others. Furthermore, each and every government on the face of this earth tries to brainwash children to its own motives. Therefore, public schooling is not good for society. It is not any different from organized religion. It only produces mediocre humans.

            And no it is not OK to bomb people in the middle of the night. And it is not OK for the government to provide for the citizen because it can only be done by confiscating other people’s earnings which is immoral.

            How would you like me to come to your home and take your big screen TV away and give it to your neighbor because he does not have one. I think it will be fair but do you?

            There is nothing inherently evil about any of those goals. In fact, the goals, themselves are good. But, as always, the devil is in the details. And hordes of devils invariably run rampant in the details of how statists address those goals.

            But modern unionism is no longer mainly about improving the lot of workers when they were being actively exploited. The unions WON those battles, in case you hadn’t noticed. Having won them, they became a massive fundraising arm for one political party. A party which pushes agenda which have, at best, peripheral connection to the unions’ ostensible raison d’etre. Agenda which the unions’ rank and file largely reject, but still have to support with a fraction of their dues.

            In the old days, the needy were provided for through private charity. They were a smaller fraction of the population, then, than they have been in the last few decades. If you want more of something, subsidize it, if you want less of it, tax it.
            The modern welfare state has grown far beyond the “safety net” that it was originally sold as, into something more closely resembling a hammock. With multiple generations receiving welfare checks and a system that actively provides dis-incentives for men to stick around and support the women on whom they got children and the children themselves. The elitist architects of the system were and are clearly trying to create a permanent underclass consisting of everyone but themselves.

            And are you calling the education system that one government report a couple of decades back, described as being something that, had a foreign power inflicted it upon us, we would consider it an act of war, something much this side of evil?

            Maybe, we’d trust those to whom you’ve sworn obeisance more if their “fixes” for each and every one of the world’s ills didn’t involve giving them still more power over our lives, when most, if not all, of those ills can be traced to their use of that power that they’ve already accumulated. Government, especially the proactive, “progressive” kind (whether of the “fascist” or “communist” variety) is a disease masquerading as its own cure.

            And as for “providing for your own citizens”:
            a) “own citizens”? So. . . we’re property of the king? Or the “peoples’ comissars”?
            b) Show me one government, ever, that made its private citizens wealthier, on average by taxing more money from them, on average.

We understand the stupidity of following someone that lies about everything. And we refuse to vote for repug’s too, if you mean repugnant by that. We would never vote for the repugnant Kenyan. Your remark about voting Democrat shows your stupidity. Anyone who votes DEMOCRAT is stupid. A party vote is an ignorant vote. If you have any intelligence you vote for candidates not the party.

            One of a kind, well yes I am, I am unique, there is nobody else in this world that is exactly like me. It is a genetics thing, might need some science to explain that.

            I have spoken with hundreds of people here, and I have only encountered one person that was stupid enough to think that Obama is good. And you know what they say, you can’t trust those old white men, they are just racists. Oops, he is an old white man and he loves Obama.

            When Obama and his administration decide to start telling the truth and admitting their mistakes, maybe some of the people here will stop hating them. Until then we just have to suffer the economy that is still spiraling out of control.

          Liberals are NOT the problem… at least not TRUE Liberals. It’s the globalist PROGS who hijacked the Democrat party from the true Liberals who are among the enemies of America, along with the RINOs and globalist neocons in the GOP.

          I’m a non-partisan Independent, so my ability to see the forest for the trees is not impaired by misplaced partisan loyalties. My loyalty is to America, not any political party. And the ugly reality is that the globalist traitors have infiltrated ALL U.S. political parties.

          Gary Johnson is as phony as a 3 dollar bill. Claims to be a “strict constitutionalist.” But almost completely disregards one of the Constitution’s core tenets; namely: domestic national defense against the illegal alien invasion.

          Johnson is so bad that non-partisan NumbersUSA rated him almost as bad as Obama [who they rated an F minus]. Johnson rated an F! See:

          https://www.numbersusa.com/content/action/gary-johnson.html

          Further, Johnson is a LEFTWING “politically correct” activist who spits on the Constitution. He hoodwinked Libertarians much like the commie-socialists were able to hijack the Democrat party from the true Liberals.

          The New World Order is infiltrating the Libertarian party using Johnson, and many sleep on him.

          For example, a homosexual man has THE EXACT SAME RIGHT under the Constitution as does a heterosexual man to marry a woman. But the fact that he does not wish to do so, though his prerogative, does NOT create for him another right; namely: to change the heterosexual definition of marriage handed down to us by our ancestors.

          But the leftwing “politically correct” globalist activists like Gary Johnson want to invent new rights. In fact, Johnson even opposes letting each state decide that. He wants a federal law imposed that enshrines the unconstitutional tampering. See:

        “If man is an angel, then he must be a killer angel. The truth is, Colonel, that there’s no divine spark, bless you. There’s many a man alive no more value than a dead dog. Believe me, when you’ve seen them hang each other…Equality? Christ in Heaven. What I’m fighting for is the right to prove I’m a better man than many. Where have you seen this divine spark in operation, Colonel? Where have you noted this magnificent equality? The Great White Joker in the Sky dooms us all to stupidity or poverty from birth. no two things on earth are equal or have an equal chance, not a leaf nor a tree. There’s many a man worse than me, and some better, but I don’t think race or country matters a damn. What matters is justice. ‘Tis why I’m here. I’ll be treated as I deserve, not as my father deserved. I’m Kilrain, and I God damn all gentlemen. I don’t know who me father was and I don’t give a damn. There’s only one aristocracy, and that’s right here – ” he tapped his white skull with a thick finger – “and YOU, Colonel laddie, are a member of it and don’t even know it. You are damned good at everything I’ve seen you do, a lovely soldier, an honest man, and you got a good heart on you too, which is rare in clever men. Strange thing. I’m not a clever man meself, but I know it when I run across it. The strange and marvelous thing about you, Colonel darlin’, is that you believe in mankind, even preachers, whereas when you’ve got my great experience of the world you will have learned that good men are rare, much rarer than you think.”

        Oh right. that’s why.

        Though you are right the unconstitutional laws do need revising. As in repeal.

  • Liberty Lover

    Kudos, Brandon, on a truly superb essay, one of the best I’ve read in a while. The analogy of the ants and the picnic feast is perfect. Most people approach the small issues emotionally rather than rationally. Long-term costs are rarely considered in the emotional hysteria to “fix this so it never happens again.” Every crisis is seen as an opportunity to strip us further of our Constitutional liberties.

    • chocopot

      Ants works well but I think cockroaches would be more correctly symbolic.

      • Liberty Lover

        No argument from me. Ants tend to be very industrious. Humans who rely for their survival on government theft from producers tend to be otherwise.

        • chocopot

          Excellent summation.

        • podunk1

          You & chopot hit the point – ants work, save, protect, and will fight to protect their home to the death. If you decide to have a picnic on their turff, expect to be bitten. Cockroaches operate in the shadows, turn the lights of truth on & they’re running the other way! Really, they belive in nothing but themselves, eating, & reproducing & that’s instinctive with zero logic or plan..

        • podunk1

          In fact, I forgot about the liberal icon – the fly & it’s natural attracton to dung vs the honey bee which is more like a patriot

            SAME WITH CONSERVATIVES! THEY ALWAYS GO BACK TO THE SAME MESSAGE BECAUSE IT SOUNDS “PERFECT” TO THEM ! IT’S WHAT JINDAL CALLED “IGNORANCE”
            That fatal flaw is what makes conservatism more of a pest than a power. IT CAUSES THEM TO LOSE ELECTIONS TO “BLACK MARXIST COMMUNIST MUSLIM KENYAN USURPERS”

    • boyscout

      LL, I am not so thrilled with the ant analogy for incrementalism as they would best represent a collective (perhaps true communism – a non entity, or a monarchy – defunct in human society.) I believe that we face international oligarchies of the controlling elites who wisely hide individual identities within the corporate (single human persona) maze. Their aim is to eliminate rationality entirely via media control; Soros for the Leftist dupes and McMurdoch for the dupes on the right. Long term costs are really irrelevant to the elites as are the livelihoods and welfare of the earth’s populations; they would be better off without 90% of us. And yes, every crisis (most of them manufactured) is used as an opportunity to release/direct the dog to control the flock on its way to the shearing.

      • 010sonny

        Brandon starts by recognizing the goals of the elites to be autocracy. Using this as his diving board to PROJECT the elitist flaws unto our social infrastructure. Once again redundantly equating the past ideologies of our forefathers as to be written in stone. Denying our constitutional rights to AMEND provisions and reform to be applicable to present day scenarios. One example; Guns of our forefathers was written in the time of single shot musket ball and designated regulations to “A Well Regulated Militia” Presently citizens can obtain machine guns to be capable to mow down our “Well Regulated Militia” Feeding the naïve their red herring special of the day. What happened to the elitists goal?
        If we choose to seek the bottom line to our economics and its benefits and flaws suggest a book By Joseph E. Stiglitz . Nobel Prize winner on Economics. Book title “ The Price Of Inequality”

          Economics, in memory of Alfred Nobel…..to understand the
          mythology of economic theory…..see

          Economics Unmasked:The Amazon Book Description

          The economic system under which we live not only forces the great majority of humankind to live their lives in indignity and poverty; it also threatens all forms of life – indeed life itself. Economics Unmasked presents a cogent critique of the dominant economic system in order to help transform our society into one in which all forms of life will be protected. The first part of this book is devoted to showing that the theoretical constructions that have been selected, work mainly to bring about injustice. The second part is concerned with what should be the foundations of a new economics where justice, human dignity, compassion and reverence for life must be the guiding values.

          “As is clear from the title, the book argues that modern neoclassical economics is a mask for power and greed, a construct designed to justify the status quo. Its claim to serve the common good is specious, and its claim to scientific status is fraudulent. The latter is sought mainly by excessive mathematical formalism to the neglect of concrete facts and real values. The mathematical formalism is in imitation of nineteenth century physics (economics viewed as the mechanics of utility and self-interest), but without any empirical basis remotely comparable to physics. Pareto is identified a villain here, and to a lesser extent Jevons.

          The hallmark of a real science is a basic consensus about fundamentals. There is no real consensus in economics, so how can it claim to be a mature science? Easy, by forcing a false “consensus” through the simple expedient of declaring heterodox views to be “not really economics,” eliminating history of economic thought from the curriculum, instigating a pseudo-Nobel Prize in Economics, and attaining a monopoly on faculty positions in economics departments at elite universities.” Herman Daly

          “They identify what they consider to be the foundations of a new economics, which are articulations of the very core of our work here at nef:
          The economy should serve the people, not the people the economy;
          Development is about people, not objects;
          Growth is not the same as development, and development does not necessarily require growth;
          No economy is possible in the absence of eco-system services;
          The economy is a sub-system of a larger and finite system, the biosphere, hence permanent growth is impossible.” Nic Marks

        • boyscout

          Will look into the Stiglitz book, but at present am thinking more in terms of a static economy/population(ought to tick off the Christian element here) as conceived in the thirties by a few who noticed the fan loading up with feces. I know that I will never be good at economics as I am not good at lying with math or art. Galt seems to have a good grasp of both the history and working mechanics of our in place system. Mr. Livingston does as well and his ideas seem to oppose. Thought provoking learning opportunity !
          Now to your main point: agreed by consensus of the Founding Fathers (and some later individuals of which I shall include myself), indeed, necessary Amendments are welcome (operative word “necessary” is HIGHLY debatable.)
          Now for your example of the musket with the Second Amendment argument: Did good King George’s armies arrive in LSTs, equip themselves with armor divisions, air force, unmanned drones, and grunts with auto fire capability as well as grenade and rocket launchers? If he had, do you believe our muskets could have won the day against tyranny? Or do you believe that our Forefathers were bent on protecting our hunting privileges?

    • GALT

      Brandon does provide bi-weekly efforts directed at “rabble rousing”
      and “inspiring and encouraging the ignorant”………after all, he knows
      that all that is required is to use rhetoric which embeds the proper labels
      in complex sentences, to appeal to those of similar ( no ) intellect who will
      declare him “brilliant” when he has said nothing. ( again )

      Which of the following does Brandon ( or you ) believe?

      1.) The framers of the Constitution opposed a strong central government.

      2.)The framers hated taxes.

      3.)The framers were impartial statesmen, above interest driven politics.

      4.) The framers were guided by clear principles of limited government.

      5.) James Madison sired the Constitution.

      6.) The Federalist Papers tell us what the Constitution really means.

      7.) The Founding Fathers gave us the Bill of Rights.

      8.) By discovering what the framers intended or how the founding generation understood the text, we can determine how each provision of the Constitution must be applied.

      “He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past controls the future.”

      • Liberty Lover

        I had high expectations when I saw your user name, Galt. After reading a few of your posts, I thought, “Well, maybe an idiot savante!” I’ve since given up hope of finding the savante part. I do agree with the quote that concludes most of your posts: it’s both true and tragic that leftists who control education and media, and who have taught a distorted American history, have condemned this country to a very dismal future.

        • GALT

          And you are still saying nothing…….so it is rather foolish to have hopes…..concerning a name, when you show no understanding of the significance of what it represents……while citing the history of a nation, which you have only demonstrated ignorance of.

          You seem to be claiming, as is author of this “truly superb essay” that freedom of speech ( and other aspects of “constitutional culture” ) are under threat……..yet you waste the opportunity to exercise it, with irrelevant response…..when you could share whether you believe or do not believe, in the “specific” understanding of the very constitution that is threatened?

          “Throughout history, when conquerors wished to fully dominate a population, they would seek to slowly subsume the people’s mythology and principles.”

          Mindless rhetoric often stumbles upon the truth in its rambling, as Brandon did here……….imagine to dare threaten the “peoples mythology”…..and the “principles” it contains.?

      • 010sonny

        Brandon what happen to the desires of the elitist? Projecting red herring menu’s does not answer your original efforts to expose them.
        Austerity, of the elitist, measures have constantly been exposed as a failure. F.D.R.’s financial advisor, Eccles, proposed that the way to restore the Nation from the Great Depression was for the government to pick up the lost of consumers lost. Essentially the driving force to our economics was the middle class. Innovations, laborers and their appetite for consumption fueled the dynamo with the liquidity that is required to continue the progress of sustainable progression to economics. Obama and Berniake have taken pages from Eccles philosophies on economic growth. Elizabeth Warren is instrumental in holding the Wall Street hooligans accountable. We have advanced from the dysfunctional system, the republicans handed over in 2008, faster than Reagan’s and Clinton’s best efforts. That Banks are now under attack by Elizabeth Warren, those with any knowledge of what she could achieve is making them to withdraw their investments to banks.
        World Bank uses the Inequality in finical distribution as a factor in the stability of a nation’s economics. At present the USA ranks 37th in western civilized nations. Inequality of distributions is in proportion to how many recessions and finical collapses.
        Observe the Scandinavian nations with their intelligent regulation of their Capitalism has produced nations with superior security of their finances. Sweden is an excellent specific example.
        Recently they passed a law that holds their CEO’s earnings in proportion to the earnings and assets of the corporation and have outlawed lavish bonuses and golden parachutes. That’s is but one example of the measures they have taken to reign in Inequality of distributions of the laborers productivity.
        Bob is still exhibiting a subdued biases for Inequality and to continue upon a path well trodden by the failures of those sovereignties of austerity.

          Not sure why you addressed this reply to me…or why it appears to be an endless loop……….PS….you should be able to edit the
          repetition by clicking the “edit” button.

          To continue the theme of your “segue”, into the realm of
          “economic mythology” and the nature of the current problems,
          none of the P.L.D. mantra admits to the current dynamics of the “problem”…..Brandon’s is not to be confused with the “other” usual suspects here……since he is completely naive in all aspects, and a true “end of the world” believer….still having not achieved the distinction of a designated “Southern Poverty Law Center”……”patriot movement domestic terrorist”…..so other than these bi-weekly diatribes, he is actually sincere and
          harmless in what he is trying to do……” create a hippy commune with guns in Montana”…..

          For Bob, and the frequent contributors, the theme is more ‘profit oriented” with convenient references to “liberty themes” with the conventional ignorance of history and a naive grasp of economics……which mentions the “plutocrats” but fails to
          assign the proper weight to the problem they represent, and the fact that……..1/3 of all personal wealth, and 1/2 of
          world trade, is safely beyond the reach of any “authority”,
          comfortably nestled “off shore”.

          Whether they are witting or unwitting dupes, they serve the interest of maintaining the status quo, by citing “governments”
          rather than “corrupted governments”, as being the “cause” of the problem…….which makes sense, because in a world
          where capitalism is defined as the private ownership of the
          means of production……which eventually must, by reduction
          rest with the “actual production” of items of value……their
          rhetoric would have “no value”……and makes their self interest quite clear.

  • rocco

    Their goal is not to introduce greater understanding or awareness. It is not about public good or public safety. And at the very core, it is not about truth. If they cared about truth or principle and if their objectives were honorable, they would not feel the need to constantly lie, cheat, steal, manipulate and threaten in an effort to impose their own worldview on the rest of us. If their purpose was as righteous as they pretend, then deceit and subversion should be beneath them. Their philosophy should be able to carry itself, without their convoluted efforts.

I agree with a lot of conservative principles, but I find their need to lie and condemn those that disagree with them repulsive. So all sides should stick to your values, study and know what you are talking about, and try to respect others beliefs. When you vilify the other side nothing can get fixed.

            You, liberals, hate when you are confronted with the FACTS and exposed by FACTS.

    I suspect the Boston Marathon attack to be a manuver to control the distribution of gunpowder/reloading equiptment used in the making of bullets – I suspect this is a false flag event being used to further control and eliminate the 2nd amendment – similar attacks in other countries have been used in this way to legislate away access to gunpowder and other needed equiptment used in the manufacture and reloading of ammunition.

    Note: at this time no information has bee revealed as to the compostion of the bombs or the type of manufacture — it just on the elites agenda, and killing a few to further the agenda is nothing new.

    When Obama was elected, we just didn’t elect a president, we elected his communist culture along with him. He never was an American even if he had been born that way. His father was a card carrying communist and he broght up his son that way. In his mind the American people, at least those that voted for him, were ready to throw our God fearing Constitutional Republic to the winds. As a communist, he thinks like Lenin, Stalin, Krushchev and the rest of those black hearted sons of satan do. The Emperor Caligula spoke his mind when he said: If I am man, then my subjects must be something else. If they are men, then I must be something more, Promises? Stailn said: Promises are like pie crust, made to be broken. Education? He thinks like Lenin when he said: People think in words and how they interpret words is who they are. Let us invent words and change the definition of words so can mold people into what we want.
    Krushchev directed this to us when he said: When it comes time to hang you, you will line up to see who can sell us the rope. That’s exactly what we did this last election. All that we were concerned about was our pocket books. The moral issues were never given a second thought.
    Was this incident in Boston staged like 9/11? Was it done to bring us MARTIAL LAW? If the God fearing lovers of America’s Constitutional Republic don’t repent to the God we threw out and organize, Obama and his ilk will win until the Lord cames back. This is WAR. War between good and evil, and we’re the prize. Read and believe John 3:16, You’ll never regret if you do.

    Obama and the gun grabbers have proven, I am not sorry to say, that what happened in Boston yesterday was due to the fact the People in Boston are unarmed! If those US Citizen had been Armed these people would have never even have attempted this Evil Act against “We the People of these United States.” These people are clearly part of the our Government Communist agenda and with Gun Control coming up for debate this is the push they used to push their “Registration to Confiscation” over the top! I do believe the Communist left is behind what happened in Boston yesterday! But the Communist/Left is already twisting the truth into more of their Communist lies as well…!!! God I wish people would study what Hitler did to disarm and take control of the German people….Their plan is a Carbon Copy of what is happening in American today by the Communist/Left…The American People have to wake-up and learn what is really going on, there are several books on the market that completely outline Hitlers agenda and through their studies will see that is the same agenda being used by the Communist left in American today! People will say…Hitler was not Communist…but the principle to disarm the people, reeducate our children to the Communist mind-set, divide the American people people by race (instead Hitlers used the Jews but the same thing) and much more. These are the same tactics Hitler used down to the letter…!!!

    • Karolyn

      You’re kidding right? I don’t care who is carrying a gun, it will not stop somebody from planting a bomb if they want to. It’s not like they’re gonna say, “Hey, look at me; I have a bomb.”

      • vicki

        Michael’s point is that the bomber would not have bothered cause he would not have been able to cause fear in a populace who is well armed and dangerous. Thus the terrorism would fail and the motivation to cause terror would be moot.

        • Karolyn

          You seriously think that people with guns would not feel terror in a bomb blast? I do not see the rationale.

    It’s ironic that the Bill of Rights, the Constitution of the Unit States, used to free all peoples, give equal right under the law regardless of gender, race, or belief is now under attack by so many whose ancestors were so positively affected from it.

We once were based on freedom and liberty ranking number one in the world and gaining the title of the freest nation to ever exist. Now we rank 14th freest nation, which is a direct correlation to the destruction of our founding documents. Government is the infection this country must cure. If it is aloud to spread much further the patient (we the people) will die.

    It’s ironic that the Bill of Rights, the Constitution of the Unit States, used to free all peoples, give equal right under the law regardless of gender, race, or belief is now under attack by so many whose ancestors were so positively affected from it. The quickest route back to Serfdom, poverty, and enslavement is to stomp on the very documents that formed this country.

    American communists-socialists are Marx’s “useful idiots” to the global elitists, and American lesbian-feminists are “useful idiots” to American communist-socialists. Look how Obamas support by the feminists pushed him “over the top” in both elections he won and how he “tiptoed” over gay marriage until it was politically expedient to do so.

    I wonder if the Republicans, Conservatives, and Libertarians don’t in a sense of instinctual but fearful self preservation tell the Leftists where the weak points are in the Constitution or the social fabric of society. We have groups that do nothing but attempt to protect the family, marriage, women and children, males,etc., but yet they have not been able to mend those fences and the Leftist predators keep attacking at those broken junctures.

    EXCELLENT, Brandon you have expressed what I have been stating in my emails fo my Libertarian contacts, for Years now, only you have done it much more eloquently…. that is we are being desroyed by the tactic of “Divide and Rule/Conquer” using a “schedule” of GRADUALISM .

  • 010sonny

    Brandon starts by recognizing the goals of the elites to be autocracy. Using this as his diving board to PROJECT the elitist flaws unto our social infrastructure. Once again redundantly equating the past ideologies of our forefathers as to be written in stone. Denying our constitutional rights to AMEND provisions and reform to be applicable to present day scenarios. One example; Guns of our forefathers was written in the time of single shot musket ball and designated regulations to “A Well Regulated Militia” Presently citizens can obtain machine guns to be capable to mow down our “Well Regulated Militia” Feeding the naïve their red herring special of the day. What happened to the elitists goal?
    If we choose to seek the bottom line to our economics and its benefits and flaws suggest a book By Joseph E. Stiglitz . Nobel Prize winner on Economics. Book title “ The Price Of Inequality”

    Conservative news outlets are pointing out the obvious—our children have been indoctrinated into socialism for 33-40 years and this indoctrination is finally bearing fruit. We have bred a nation of young, entitled citizens who do not like to work, do not like to read or study anything too involved or complicated that exceeds Twitter’s 140 words, do not take responsibility for their actions, exhibit righteous indignation if their demands are not met, claim racism and hate speech if others disagree with them, and are afraid of their shadows.

    Students no longer explore and discuss the history of America even in the History Department of the local college—it has long been replaced by courses that praise and promote sexual, “racial and ethnic differences,” instead of highlighting our common American heritage, what made America great and an exceptional nation that has contributed to the betterment of mankind. Socialist professors admire, teach, and laud the history of non-western cultures as superior to our own culture….

    Short on critical thinking skills, the college, instead of concentrating on scientists, men of letters, philosophers and orators who contributed to western thought and civilization, chose courses such as Queer Gardens, Beyond Pocahontas: Native American Stereotypes, Sexual Life of Colonialism, and Modern Western Prostitutes.

    ….An international “baccalaureate” world school is another arm of U.N. Agenda 21 indoctrination of our children into “global citizenship, social justice, intercultural understanding and respect,” submission to one-world socialist government, using American taxpayer dollars. Most parents have no idea what IB is. IB programs are devoted to the “radical transformation of America’s classrooms.”

    An IB World School is a private or public school that has agreed to offer the IB (International Baccalaureate) program run and coordinated by IBO, a non-profit socialist Swiss Foundation in Geneva, Switzerland, in partnership with UNESCO of the United Nations. As a parent, in order to discover what the secret curriculum is, one has to be an approved IB teacher, with a password that accesses the curriculum. This sounds very similar to the CSCOPE curriculum in Texas which is kept quite unavailable to prying eyes and ears.

    Justin Blough describes the IB program at the school he attended—no more learning about U.S. President, good values, no American history, patriotic songs, and plays. Teachers have to wear the light blue colors of the United Nations. Students are indoctrinated into becoming “citizens of the world” instead of citizens of the country they were born in, preoccupied with “moral, ethical, social, economic, and environmental implications of global production and consumption.”

    The Rescue Mission Planet Earth is promoted by the IB program as the student’s version of UN Agenda 21. The first director of UNESCO, Julian Huxley, stated that UNESCO “is to help the emergence of a single world culture, with its own philosophy and background of ideas, and with its own broad purposes.” Agenda 21 goals were advanced around the world with the help of ICLEI (International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives) while IB World Schools are advanced with the help of the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization) in Switzerland.

      Then again, since the facts regarding what made “america” great
      do not appear to reflect “greatness” and these revelations are
      recent and mounting…….most of what is taught and was taught regarding

      no more learning about U.S. President, good values, no American history, patriotic songs, and plays.

      would be correctly defined as “propaganda”. On the other hand, these topics:

      preoccupied with “moral, ethical, social, economic, and environmental implications of global production and consumption.”

      would actually be appropriate to the challenges faced by all in a future
      faced by all……………given the choice between lies pertaining to the
      past…….or the actions required to secure the survival of the species
      and the planet……..since the “truth” seems to be somewhat unpleasant
      for those determined to remain ignorant of it……the latter choice would appear more pragmatic…..after all, deluded patriots serve little purpose
      and are fortunately a dying breed.

    A lot of us have known this about the leftwingers for years. We know what their true goals are; the utter destruction of America’s current form of government, and the installment of a European socialist state. So what do we do about it? We know who the enemy is, we know their names and their faces. Where do we go from here? Since the left pretty much control the judiciary, academia, and most of the media, they have more control of the narrative than we do. So what now? This is not a rhetorical question.

    Homosexual Activist Admits True Purpose of Battle is to Destroy Marriage

    Even knowing that there are radicals in all movements, doesn’t lessen the startling admission recently by lesbian journalist Masha Gessen. On a radio show she actually admits that homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda. She says that they don’t want to access the institution of marriage; they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate it.

    Here is what she recently said on a radio interview:

    “It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. …(F)ighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie.

    The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life. That’s sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago.

    I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”

      I am reposting my reply to WTS/JAY. If you, “Moderator”, will censor it, at least have the testicles to explain WHAT exactly you are censoring: Homosexualism, Communism, Marxism, Progressivism, DEMONcratic Party or anatomical terminology “Testicles” OR the Bible quotation?
      Thank you in advance.

      HOMOSEXUALS AND COMMUNISTS/ MARXISTS/ PROGRESSIVES/ DEMONcrats HAVE THE COMMON AGENDA

      Here are some of the Communistic goals for America. The rest of them you can see at “The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals” (Google it)
      Please watch this Video. It’s a PROVE
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9yYlytGy85A

      26. Present HOMOSEXUALITY, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

      27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. DISCREDIT the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch”.

      28. ELIMINATE PRAYER or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

      40. DISCREDIT THE FAMILY AS AN INSTITUTION. ENCOURAGE
      PROMISCUITY and EASY DIVORCE.

      41. Emphasize the need to RAISE CHILDREN AWAY FROM the negative INFLUENCE OF PARENTS. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

      “Wickedness proceeds from the wicked.” (I Samuel 24:13)

      “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be

    In order to understand why we are experiencing so many attacks on our freedoms we must have an understanding of language. We must know what words mean in the context being used.

    Most of you when you first started school you were not given a book to read but were taught to identify letters and sounds. You were then taught letter groups and words. You were taught English word usage and sentence structure. All along the way you were taught word meanings. One of the things you found out was that words could have different meanings and sometimes it wasn’t clear as to what the meaning was supposed to be. You were taught how to use a dictionary to help in finding the meaning of words.

    Let’s look at how words are used and understood. You must train yourself to not presume any meanings to words or to assume limits where they …are not specified.

    When you see “United States” in a sentence or law you know that it is referring to the country, right? Well maybe not. The U.S. Supreme Court in Hooven & Allison Co. v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 652 (1945) stated;

    The term ‘United States’ may be used in any one of several senses. It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations. It may designate the territory over which the sovereignty of the United States extends, or it may be the collective name of the states which are united by and under the Constitution.

    So the term “United States” may be (among others):

    1. A nation among other nations, as when the United States is represented at the U.N. A singular entity.
    2. The territory over which the sovereignty of the United States extends. Since this is also a singular entity it must mean the areas over which the Federal government has jurisdiction.
    3. The Several States united by the Constitution. A plural term. The term Several States is usually used to denote the 50 separate States in law.

    After Lee surrendered President Johnson brought the “rebellious states” back into the nation. Note that when the vote was taken for the 13th Amendment Congress would not have had the needed 3/4’s of the states’ representatives to present the amendment to the states’ legislatures for ratification if the southern states had not voted for it; the non-seceding States would have defeated it.

    The 13th Amendment:
    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    The amendment abolishes slavery which is a good thing. Or did it?

    The 13th Amendment states its area of law is “…the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” Since the United States is plural due to their jurisdiction the Amendment means the Several States.

    Consider this scenario:
    John and Mary, your children, are playing in the backyard. You come to the door and yell, “John, you come in here right now.”

    What did you very explicitly tell John? He must come in right now, correct? Of course you did. But what did you implicitly tell Mary just as strongly? She does NOT have to come in. This is a very important fact when dealing with language. Stating one thing can sometimes also state the opposite to others.

    This problem of explicitly forbidding one thing and implicitly allowing others is common when people write laws to ban certain behaviors they find objectionable. They find a need to continually amend the law to cover more and more behaviors implicitly allowed because once you get too specific a lot of things can fall through the cracks

    Along with English we use certain Math and Logic truths in everyday living; often without realizing it.

    If A=B and B=C, we know that A=C.

    If two Quarters equal five dimes and five dimes equal fifty cents, we know that a clerk will accept either the quarters or the dimes in payment for a paper that costs fifty cents.
    In short we can substitute the dimes for the quarters in the “equation” and it doesn’t affect the outcome, you still get the paper.

    The term “United States”, unless noted, when singular is equal to the “territory of the Federal Government” or just the “Federal Government” when needed for clarification; when the term is plural it means the “Several States”. We can then substitute “Federal Government” and “Several States” for their respective term of “United States” per the second and third definitions given in Hooven & Allison co. v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 652 (1945).

    Why does this concern us now?

    Let’s look at the 13th Amendment again substituting equal terms to clarify its meaning..

    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the SEVERAL STATES, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. (emphasis mine)

    That is a lot clearer now. Now sit back, using our lesson from John and Mary we can state that:

    The 13th Amendment states explicitly that: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the Several States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction

    AND

    Implicitly states that: Either slavery or involuntary servitude shall (or can) exist within the Federal Government, or any place subject to the jurisdiction thereof. The punishment exception doesn’t apply here since it is negated by the implicit allowance of involuntary servitude.

    I have gotten a lot of flak because of this from people indignant over the clear meaning of this amendment. One thing you must remember here is just because the law allows something doesn’t mean it has to either state it or refute it. It would be better to look at our lives and see if we are truly free or not.

    Interested in reading further or just want to complain? Do some research, a good primer is “A Patriot’s Thoughts”, the last article in the list at “cfhabeck.blogspot” since it was the first one written or email patriot1789 at hot mail for a copy.

  • tncdel

    The author’s analysis is correct. HOWEVER, he failed to identify the “WHY”s and the “WHEREFORE”s behind it:

    The reason why is the reality that globalist TRAITORS to America, including the Progs who hijacked the Democrat Party from true Liberals loyal to the U.S., and also the RINOs and globalist neocons [like Bush, Boehner, McCain, etc.] who have wrested control of the GOP, see the Constitution as an impediment toward implementing their agendas geared toward eroding U.S. sovereignty and dissolving its border. Just look at who has supported NAFTA, amnesty for foreign nationals here illegally, and other globalist agendas. And that will tell you who America’s internal ENEMIES are.

    Boehner needs to be replaced as Speaker of the House. Also Eric Cantor [another who supports amnesty and other globalist agendas], plus McCain, Rubio, and anyone else, INCLUDING RAND PAUL if he persists in advocating giving amnesty as he is now doing.

    Anyone with an IQ above that of a turnip should be able to realize that amnesty would only serve to attract millions more job-stealing illegals here.

    The ONLY way to stop the illegal alien invasion: MAKE THINGS AS TOUGH AS POSSIBLE on the illegals, so they will self-deport back to Mexico, etc. at their own expense because they get to hate it here so much. We certainly can’t afford to deport over 20 million illegals. Plus most would only come right back if we tried.
