Congress is the problem. Congress has become an institution that is only concerned with symbolism and refuses to take seriously the role assigned to it.
James Madison's notes at the Federal Convention of 1787 leave no doubt that the Founders - including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Gouverneur Morris of Pennsylvania, and dozens of others - envisioned a supreme legislative branch as the heart and soul of America's central government. They assumed that Congress, drawn from all parts of the country, would initiate bills, set budgets, approve wars, provide national leadership. The delegates who gathered at Independence Hall in Philadelphia during summer of 1787 to write the Constitution spent the bulk of their time arguing, cajoling, reasoning, writing, and rewriting the details of this all-important Congress.
Congress was to provide national leadership. This is clearly no longer the role of congress. Congress has determined it is their role to promote the politics of their political party. This is exactly what George Washington warned us would happen with the advent of political parties. Washington said the danger was that the good of the political party would take precedence over the good of the country.
That the role of congress has been diminished from national leaders to political party leaders was never made clearer than the contrast we saw this week.
Lawmakers took a vote on Wednesday when the House of Representatives passed legislation to make lynching a federal crime. The House passed HR 35, anti-lynching legislation introduced by Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Rep. Bobby Rush of Illinois, called the Emmett Till Antilynching Act. Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was brutally murdered in a racist attack in Mississippi in 1955. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke on the floor ahead of the vote in support of the measure, saying, "Today Congress has an opportunity to acknowledge its responsibility for its historic failure to confront and end the horror of lynching in America."
The real statement that should have been made is that congress failed in 1955 to address the horrific act of lynching’s in 1955 when the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party supported those who committed these acts. People, such as Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Senator Byrd of West Virginia, were prominent members of organizations like the KKK and it was not politically expedient for members of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party to oppose these horrific actions. 65 years later it is?
Meanwhile, Senate Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) on Monday blocked the bill that would have threatened prison time for doctors who don't try saving the life of infants born alive during failed abortions, putting aside any doubt that Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) were embracing "infanticide" to appeal to left-wing voters.
For political purposes congress failed to act to protect the killing by lynching in 1955. In 2020, for strictly political purposes, born babies are refused their declared natural right of life.
In both instances, member of congress clearly placed politics above the good of the national interest. Remember, in our Declaration of Independence we declared that it was in the national interest of the new nation that was to come, that we valued the natural right of life that is endowed, by our Creator, upon every individual. Congress failed the national interest in 1955 and again in 2020 and proved their interest is to advance a political agenda over the national interest.
CNN political analyst Van Jones said Tuesday he was “disappointed” that Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders “failed” to explain during the Democratic debate why his socialism is any different from that of communist dictators like Fidel Castro.
Sanders has recently praised “that stuff from Cuba,” telling CBS News’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday that “it’s unfair to say everything is bad” in Cuba.
“You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program,” said Sanders. “Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”
Sanders then praised communist China because “the facts are clear, that they have taken more people out of extreme poverty than any country in history.”
Bernie Sanders: "It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death." August 8, 1985
Bernie Sanders is a Karl Marx, Communist Manifesto, Lenin communist. Bernie Sanders believes that the natural course of history is socialism following capitalism as Marx states over and over. Sanders believes that the capitalist is the oppressor and the worker is oppressed. Sanders believes that the United States is the evilest imperialist empire and its wealth and might must be destroyed. Like Marx, Sanders believes that all long-standing principles, all morality, and all religion must be destroyed.
Sanders believes, that to destroy the oppressing aspects of the United States, the family unit must be destroyed. Like Lenin, Sanders believes this can and will be done by legalizing the murder of the unborn, by promoting divorce, by promoting the destruction of all sexual morality, and by promoting promiscuity. Sanders, like Lenin believes that all children belong to the state and as property of the state children must be indoctrinated with communist beliefs and not the beliefs of the parents.
Van Jones, Valarie Jarrett, Barack Obama, and Michele Obama are also committed communists. They however believe that in order to bring about the compete transformation, the American people cannot be told the truth about their beliefs. This is why Van Jones wishes that Bernie Sanders would not be so honest with the American people about his communist beliefs, which are the same beliefs of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party.
THE COLONISTS FOUGHT TO FREE THEMSELVES FROM THE DESPOTISM OF GOVERNMENTRead Now
The choice could not be clearer. You can be a slave to the state is one choice. We can uphold the United States Constitution which was specifically drafted and ratified to protect the individual from the tyranny of big government is the other choice.
Everything we have heard from the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) is that we must enslave the public with more and more government. That is exactly what the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are saying when they say that government will provide free this and free that, and that it is the responsibility of government to solve this problem and that problem, They who give and they who solve, control.
A summary of the debate:
Not one time did I hear that liberties such as speech, or religion should be protected and expanded.
Not one time did I hear that I want to free the Americans from regulations and allow the free market system to work.
Not one time did I hear that I want to improve the strength of the family by making the murder of the unborn illegal.
Not one time did I hear it mentioned that I want to teach the children accurate history so the children will be able to understand why we were founded on the basis of the Creator endowing each individual with natural rights, and why we are a Republic and not a democracy.
Not one time did I hear mentioned that our government must adopt zero based budgeting, that we must control waste and corruption in the government, and that we must require all people on any government dole have a limited time and while on the dole they must be training to work.
Not one time did I hear mentioned that we must control our borders and enforce immigration laws.
Not one time did I hear mentioned that we must become an America that relies on the hard working and innovative individual who strives for self-reliance and not government reliance.
Not one time did I hear mentioned that we should again become Freedom Loving Americans and not collectivists (Marxist, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same).
Each time I hear these collectivist tell us how we must enslave the American people by increasing the power of the government, I become very frightened that we are on “The Road to Tyranny.”
Islamic Jihad sympathizer and committed collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) Comrade Obama is making ridiculous claims about the United States economy. Comrade Obama is claiming the current strong economy in the United States is because of his high tax and regulate polices. This is as ridiculous as Obama’s Comrade, Stalin claimed his five-year programs were a huge success while millions of Russians starved to death.
But then we are also being told by Comrade Sanders that Castro did great things for Cuba. This goes along with Sotomayor claiming that her fellow Justices are biased because they do not agree with her collectivist ideology, or Eric Swalwell claiming Russian interference in elections is fine if it helps Sanders but wrong if it hurts President Trump. Newsflash, Russia, the Soviet Union, has been interfering in United States Elections since Lenin took power. The interference had little or no affect even in 1944 when Stalin said all American Communists, of which there were many in the FDR administration, should support FDR. This Russian interference hysteria is nonsense. Many countries will try to interfere in the United States election and countries like Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and others will be trying to have Trump defeated and any Marxist/Progressive elected.
But getting back to Islamic Jihadist sympathizer and collectivist Comrade Obama trying to make himself relative as all his anti-freedom, anti-liberty, anti-American, and anti-prosperity programs are being dismantled, he should look at the numbers. For instance, the GDP in his last year in office was on the way down going from 2.88 in 2015 to 1.57 in 2016. The unemployment rate was at 4.7%, even though the labor participation rate was near its lowest level since the 1960’s. There were more people dropping from the workforce than were finding jobs. We were being told by Comrade Obama that it would take a magic wand to bring manufacturing jobs back to America. We were told by Comrade Obama that the lethargic recovery, the slowest since World War II was the new normal. President Trump found the magic wand and showed that by getting rid of Obama policies, the economy could and would grow way beyond the Comrade's "new normal."
Islamic Jihad sympathizer and collectivist, Comrade Obama was proven wrong by President Trump and the American people. President Trump lowered the taxes the Comrade would not, President Trump rolled back the regulations the Comrade wanted to increase, and the American people, happy to see individualism still exists, did the rest.
No, Islamic Jihadist sympathizer and collectivist, Comrade Obama, the economic prosperity we are now enjoying is not because of you, it is because President Trump reversed your socialist economic policies and unleashed that magnificent economic force, the American people.
MARXIST/PROGRESSIVES (DEMOCRATS) IMPLODING IS GREAT FOR FREEDOM AND LIBERTYRead Now
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party appears to be in a state of total confusion. This is a party that since at least the days of Woodrow Wilson has tried to change the United States from an individualist nation to a collectivist nation. Said a different way, this is the party that has tried to change the United States from a nation that champions freedom, liberty, and opportunity to a collectivist nation that believes in total conformity and equality or a socialist/communist nation. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party has had many nominees for president that were die hard collectivists. Two of the most notable were elected to be president, Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama. They never referred to themselves as collectivists openly. In fact, both claimed to champion capitalism while they violated and obliterated the Constitution in their effort to destroy the very thing they claimed to champion.
Today, much to the dismay of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, a self-proclaimed Socialist, who has praised the collectivist (Marxist. Communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement openly and is running on the platform implementing Marxism in much the same way Lenin did in Russia, is the front-runner in their primary. The supposed savior of the party, Joe Biden, is proving once again why he failed miserably every time he was a presidential candidate. It appears the DNC is left with a billionaire who is proving to be even less formidable than Biden. The others, Buttigieg, Warren, and Klobuchar are gone now but will be official the day after super Tuesday.
The DNC and many others are predicting a massive Trump or American, and freedom and liberty victory in November if Sanders is named the nominee. A resounding victory for the President, an extension of support in the Senate, and a return of the house to sanity from the insanity we have had the last two years would be in the best interest of all, including those who identify as Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
Some reasons the above prediction is very likely:
President Trump is called a liar, a racist, a sexist, and so many other things by the collectivists, and yet the American people see no evidence of these accusations, because they are simply not true.
The collectivists have accused President Trump of colluding with whomever, and just like the constant claims of disaster from climate cooling, warming, change, or whatever that never happened, the claims of collusion are constantly and consistently proven to be false. But, in both instances, the collectivists never stop but instead just become more and more outlandish. This is now viewed as total insanity by the sane American public.
The collectivists have told us consistently that if you do not support the murder of unborn children you can not be a part of their party. Americans are choosing to not support legalized murder and are abandoning the collectivists.
The collectivists are telling Americans that they must abandoned fellow Americans, including veterans, and instead support those who would enter our country illegally. Americans are saying no to this insanity. Reasonable Americans understand that those who enter our country illegally have already shown their disdain for freedom and liberty unlike fellow Americans, including veterans who honor freedom and liberty.
The collectivists are saying they are the party of the working American, yet they are telling us that we must have our taxes raised so that congress and the bureaucracy can waste it and steal it, that we are not smart enough to make our own decisions on how we live our lives and how we think and so government must tell us, and that our health insurance must be provided by government so some bureaucrat has final say in our health care. We Americans still do not trust government, especially with our health and ultimately with our lives.
The collectivists are telling the American people that Americans are not happy. Yet, more Americans are working today than ever before, and much to the dismay of the collectivists Americans do prefer a paycheck to a welfare check. Americans still believe in the American dream and opportunity.
The collectivists have always had at the center or their message pessimism, failure, and problems with the promise that government is the only solution. Americans are still optimists who believe that the individual is the best problem solver and that goverrnment is the best problem creator.
Make no mistake, even if November brings the results the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and the DNC fear, that result that is truly in the best interest of the American public, the collectivists will not stop with their message of doom and gloom until they have brought about the doom and gloom they so desperately want.
Let that be a warning to all Freedom Loving Americans. We must work diligently to assure that President Trump is re-elected, that the Senate majority is increased, and that the house is returned to sane leadership. Work without ceasing until November 3rd. If we do, we should be able to celebrate November 4th. On November 5th we must become that irate, tireless minority that is keen on setting brushfires of freedom, and never stop so we can bury the evil that is collectivism in the deepest crevices of Hell, where it belongs.
I listened to the debates tonight. There were no flags, no not one. If you listened to the debate you would understand why. These collectivists (Marxist, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) do not believe in the flag, do not honor the flag, and despise everything for which the flag stands.
If you will spend some time reading the Communist Manifesto, you will know everything that was discussed and supported. Just like Marx believed he knew everything there was to know about anything, so did the six on the stage. There was not one Freedom Loving American on the stage.
I did learn something however, but it was not from anything said in the so-called debate. During the debate, I multi-tasked and did a segment on the Andrea Kaye show. She asked me what I thought, and I replied I was listening to Lenin, Trotsky, and Luxemburg all agreeing on the attributes of Marxism but disagreeing on how to implement his program. She commented, correctly I believe, that Americans do not know what I just said because of our lack of an education system and our school system becoming an indoctrination system.
If we are to not go down “The Road to Tyranny” we must take it upon ourselves to educate ourselves not only on the differences between collectivism and individualism, but we must learn why for instance the United States was founded as a Republic and not as a democracy and what it means to be a nation founded on natural rights – entitlements are not rights.
If we are to avoid going down “The Road to Tyranny” all Freedom Loving Americans must learn our history and why our founders did what they did, and who the collectivists (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) are and what they believe. You must then become a part of the irate and tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of others.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is once again trying to find a way to keep the nomination from Bernie Sanders. They have changed their rules to allow Bloomberg to be on the debate stage. As Biden has fallen through the clouds, as no other current candidate has the appeal the party believes they desire, and as Bernie Sanders continues to dominate, the DNC becomes more and more afraid of a Bernie Sanders led ticket. What we are quickly learning is that the only positive thing Bloomberg has would be his unlimited dollars.
The ironic aspect of this dilemma for the DNC is that there is very little difference between Bernie Sanders and the other candidates. There is very little difference, if any, between who and what Bernie Sanders is and what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is. Bernie Sanders, the other candidates, the DNC, and the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party are all hard core and dedicated collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same). They all believe that natural rights are under the total control of the state and not our Creator, they all favor democracy over our Republic, they all favor arbitrary law over rule of law, they all favor unlimited government over limited government, they all favor consolidated power over separation of power, and they all favor a sovereign state with the people as slaves to the state over a sovereign people with the government as the servant.
In addition, this same group favors a central committee controlled economy as opposed to a market controlled economy, they all believe that all people should conform in thought, word, and deed, to the government dictated politically correct thought, word, and deed. They all believe that all assets, including income, belong to the government and it is the right of the government to determine what the individual can have. This is referred to as sharing the wealth. They all believe that the right of the individual to pursue their own happiness must always be limited by the dictates of the government in their demand that the perceived good of the community is always placed above the desires and ambitions of the individual.
Following is how a Bernie Sanders surrogate describe what Sanders supports and what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party and DNC support.
Speaking at a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders in Tacoma, Washington, a campaign surrogate dispelled any remaining doubts that Sanders and his supporters ardently support socialism and desire to implement it in the United States.
Kshama Sawant, herself a socialist member on the Seattle City Council, delivered an impassioned speech at the rally, which aimed to criticize "corporate elites" and the "billionaire class" in Microsoft founder Bill Gates' and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos' backyard.
"We need a powerful socialist movement to end all capitalist oppression and exploitation!" she exclaimed to thunderous applause during the speech.
Sawant, who helped lead the push to raise the minimum wage in Seattle to $15 an hour and once drew fire from the city's mayor after calling for a "wave of protests and strikes" to shut down highways, airports and other key infrastructure, made sure the crowd knew what kind of campaign Sanders is running.
"Bernie's socialist campaign is poised to win from Massachusetts to California," Sawant said.
Yes, this is exactly who Bernie Sanders is. But then, this is also exactly who the other candidates are, exactly who the DNC is, and exactly who the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is. Yet every effort is being made to deny Sanders the nomination. It would appear the DNC and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) do not want the American public to understand that they are now full-fledged collectivists because they fear that will be a losing proposition for them. But then, the very ideology they and Bernie Sanders are proclaiming has been a disastrous proposition for every government that has ever tried it.
There will be fewer people watching this time than last time. All of us watching could fit in my living room. Maybe you eleven want to come over and we could even make some popcorn.
There will not be one American flag in site. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) detest our flag, our history, and our principles of freedom and liberty. Every principle the flag represents they oppose such as individualism, they support collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive); rule of law, they support arbitrary law where the law is applied differently to people who support freedom and liberty from those who support a Marxist totalitarian state; limited government, they support a mammoth dictatorial bureaucratic government; divided government, they support tyranny under the judicial branch; sovereignty of the people, they support sovereignty of the government with the people as servants, serfs, and slaves to that sovereign government.
The candidates will refer to the United States Constitution; the very Constitution they despise and wish to obliterate, the very Constitution they do not understand.
The candidates will decry the opportunity the United States capitalist system promises to all except themselves who are millionaires and billionaires.
The candidates will support the mandate of Karl Marx who said it is imperative that all borders be removed so that all become a global nation under the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat.”
The candidates will proclaim that climate cooling, or warming, or change, or whatever, is very real because it is cold someplace, it is hot someplace, it is dry someplace, or it is raining someplace. Anyway, this is a real crisis they will declare so it is mandatory that he United States, who is the most evil imperialist nation anyway they believe, share its wealth with all so freedom and liberty will be destroyed and the Marxist totalitarian state can be established.
The candidates will proclaim that it is the state and not the Creator from whom our natural rights emanate so life of the unborn, and even some of the born, can be eliminated if it is believed that their life will be an inconvenience or will be too expensive.
The candidates will proclaim that we servants, serfs, and slaves, are incapable of taking care of ourselves or making our own decisions. Because of this, the state must provide for us, make our decisions for us, declare that there are no consequences for actions by those who would vote for and support the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement.
The dynamics will have changed somewhat in that the only candidate that declares openly he is a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive – they are all basically the same) is the most feared because of his honesty. Biden and Warner will be defending their failed efforts. Bloomberg, who will be a new addition, will have many comments to defend, assuming he is asked questions about his racists, sexists, and elitist comments of the past.
All in all, for those of you who are normal people who have lives, I envy you. We abnormal people who do not have lives, the other eleven and me, will share with you anything of any consequence. I feel very comfortable, however, that you could read this next week even, and you would have read a summary of the event. Oh yes, there will be winners and losers declared, but already I can tell you that the real loser is freedom and liberty, the principles upon which we were founded, and the American people. We would like to say that the winner will be President Trump, and from a political standpoint he will be, but from the standpoint of what is best for freedom and liberty and the American way, all will be losers when the evil of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive – all virtually the same) is openly proclaimed in a United States Presidential debate, even if that debate is one for the nomination of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party.
Presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar doubled down on her position that Bernie Sanders, her self-described Democratic socialist rival, would hurt the party if he becomes the nominee.
"I am not a pundit, but what I do know (is this), I am the only one on the debate stage when asked, 'Do you have a problem with a socialist leading the Democratic ticket?' that said yes.
"Here in Nevada, as you were just talking about earlier in the show, we don't want to kick 149 million Americans off their current health insurance in four years, which is what Bernie's bill would do," Klobuchar added. "People are much more pragmatic. They want plans and not pipe dreams. I am the candidate that brings that, and I think that's why we are surging across the country."
Amy is correct about Americas not wanting pipe dreams, but she is wrong about the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party not wanting pipe dreams. Every other Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidate has expressed their desire to have a universal health care plan that would eliminate all private insurance. The only difference between the plans is thr length of time in which this would take place.
In addition, everyone of these Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidates support the pipe dream of implementing the Green New Deal of the new party leader AOC, that would eliminate air travel and renovate every building in the country while instituting a Marxist totalitarian state. Other policies these Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are supporting is the killing of babies even after they have been born. Would that be called late term murder or early born murder?
These same Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are supporting completely open borders and a program that mandates that any illegal alien that has been deported is brought back to the United States even if that person has committed murder, or rape, or robbery, or any crime. These same Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are advocating the complete obliteration of our Constitution by defining it to be a living document, they want all illegal aliens who have committed any crime to be safely harbored, they want to mandate vasectomy ages, they want our schools to indoctrinate students to believe in collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat, all virtually the same) ideals, they want anybody including very young children to decide if they are boys or girls before they even have any idea what a boy or a girl is.
Yes, Amy Klobuchar, you are correct, the idea of universal government health care is a horrible idea, but believe it or not, it is simply one of many horrible ideas of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. It is only one of many horrible ideas of the candidates and many members of your party that has proven to always fail and destroy the nation that adopts them. Bernie Sanders is not the only Marxist, communist, socialist, presidential candidate running for the nomination of your party. Sanders is the only honest one that has stated “he is a communist and not ashamed of it.” The rest are as much of a communist as he is but they are not as honest.
It would seem Amy, that perhaps, if you are somebody who thinks freedom and liberty are good things, that you might want to at the very least switch your registration from Democrat to anything else. You might also seriously consider, if you think freedom and liberty are good things, of not supporting any Marxist/Progressive candidate and voting for President Trump. If, Amy, you are somebody who thinks freedom and liberty are good things, you might want to publicly announce this and declare how your current party despises freedom and liberty while it believes that people are in fact slaves to the state. This brave and wise action could swing many of your followers away from the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party and assure that the Marxist, communists, and socialists running for any office, including president, would be defeated.
I had the privilege to share with the Porterville, Californian Republican Women on Wednesday. I will be sharing with the Republican Women of Paso Robles, California on Monday. I share with many Republican Women groups and consider it a privilege and honor always. I am available to share with any group that is interested in hearing about the state of our union from somebody who refuses to be politically correct and will speak the truth about the wonders of individualism and the evils of collectivism.
What a wonderful time we had in Porterville. During the introductions of guests, one Freedom Loving American introduced her guest and informed the group that she had taken her friend to register to vote for the first time ever and her guest will be voting for the first time ever. This is absolutely a very necessary part of what it means to “set brushfires of freedom in the minds of Americans.”
If we are to remain a free and independent people, free from the dictates of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” as proposed by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party of today, we must begin to do exactly what this patriot in Porterville did. We must love freedom enough to be willing to face ridicule and rejection of those who wish to destroy our freedom, our Constitution, and our Republic. We must be willing to discuss, not argue or debate, about the necessity of us passing our Republic on to our posterity as opposed to allowing the collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same) to transform us into a collectivist state.
I do not know the name of this example setting patriot, but all should hold her up as an example to which we should all aspire. Thank you Freedom Loving American!!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
