Samuel Adams was a master at “Setting Brushfires of Freedom”. Samuel Adams understood the differences between freedom and tyranny and that the role played by government was at the center of this difference. The Revolutionary War was fought to free us from tyranny and allow us to live with individual liberty and freedom. The United States Constitution was written to protect us from the tyranny of government and allow us to live with individual liberty and freedom. The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to reinforce that in the United States of America the people would be free from the tyranny of government and live with individual liberty and freedom.
This is a critical concept. Should government dictate how we are to live our lives, how we are to think, or does each individual choose how they will live their life, how they will think? The collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) ideology adheres to the former while the individualist (our founders and today’s Freedom Loving Americans) ideology adheres to the latter.
The collectivist has and is telling the individualist that the institutions of society, including the police and military, must be reformed, reimagined, transformed to meet the social needs of the community. What are they really saying? The collectivist desires a classless society per Karl Marx. This is Marx’s way of saying that all people must live their lives and think so they conform to the dictates of the collective, or the communist party. The dictates of the communist party are to never be questioned. The dictates of the communist party are supreme to any other man-made rules such as a constitution, and they are supreme to the teachings of the Bible according to the collectivist.
Marx told us that society must be destroyed, along with its institutions, and rebuilt to adhere to the communist dictates. He also taught that this would require a transition period which would place government under the control of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” (DP). During this time period, the DP would use any and all means, including despotic means, to bring about the transformation.
Lenin defined DP in the following words: the dictatorship of proletariat means a most determined and most ruthless war waged by the new class against a more powerful enemy, the bourgeoisie, whose resistance is increased tenfold by their overthrow not in the strength of international capital, the strength and durability of their international connection, but also in the force of habit, in the strength of small-scale production.
Different ways in which we are seeing he DP at work in the United States are restricting liberties such as speech, assembly, and right to bear arms. Also, manipulation of elections, using any fraudulent means to bring about the desired result, taking private property form one class to reward and enslave another, causing hatred by the use of the false narrative that we are racists, controlling the public by spreading fear and demanding compliance to foolish and destructive dictates such as closing small businesses, telling people to stay home, telling people they must wear masks and “socially distance”, and demonizing and ostracizing any who would correctly question the insanity of such, because of some flu virus that has not increased the number of deaths annually. The DP has used indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation in many forms, to bring about this conformity to the demands and dictates of the communist way of thinking.
Yes, the United States today is under the despotic terror of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” to bring about the transformation of the United States of America from a society of individual freedom and liberty to a society controlled by a Marxist totalitarian state. This would be a state that tells people how they are to live their lives and how they are to think.
Our founders had an opposite view of the proper role of government. They followed the idea that a government that governs least governs best. The founders believed in limited government.
“It is to be remembered that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects.” James Madison, Federalist #14
The Founders distrusted strong governments. Their own experience and study of history taught them that overly powerful governments turned oppressive.
Before endeavoring to be about “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” be sure you know if you favor big government or limited government and why. If you favor limited government, if you are a true Freedom Loving American, ask others if they favor limited government or big government and why. Ask them if they believe in liberty and freedom and why. Ask them about the differences between these concepts, but remember, small steps are often far more productive than giant steps. The person with whom you are speaking has been indoctrinated, accepts the propaganda as truth, and is intimidated. Your job is to raise questions in their mind. You cannot change their mind for them, they must change their own mind. You are simply giving them some tools to do so.
Those who answer the question yes when asked if they are a Republican, must then state with which faction of the Republican party they identify. There are clearly two different Republican parties. There is the Republican party that identifies as the go along to get along faction. It is this faction that has kept the Republican party as the party that is most comfortable as the minority in congress. They also support having a Republican President who claims to be a compassionate conservative. A compassionate conservative has been identified by the left as a useful idiot. The compassionate conservative claims to oppose the transformation to communism as supported by the Democrats, but they go along with all the proposed policies by the Democrats to bring about the transformation because “it brings harmony to the country”; in other words, they are liars when they claim to be conservatives.
The useful idiot faction of the Republican party has included such notables as Governor Rockefeller, Senator Dole, Senator McCain, and currently those like Jeff Flake, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, and so many others. These useful idiots inevitably support big government. Big government means that government will control the lives and the thoughts of the people; this is the common identifier of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same).
The other faction of the Republican party is the Freedom Loving Americans faction. This is the faction that supports and wants to restore the principles upon which America was founded such as; we are a republic, our rights and liberties come from God and not government, the people are sovereign and the government is the servant, limited government is always best, education and not indoctrination, truth and honor and not lies and propaganda, equal opportunity not equal outcome, self-reliance not government reliance, rule of law not arbitrary law, content of character and not color of skin, America first not America last, America must be that shining city on the hill for the rest of the world, and the other principles of individualism and not collectivism.
Those notable Americans who represent the Freedom Loving Americans faction would be our founders such as George Washington, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and the rest. Other notables would be Presidents Coolidge and Reagan, Barry Goldwater, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and so many other great Americans. Freedom Loving Americans understand why we are a republic, why our rights come from God and not government, and most importantly why we must oppose at every turn the committed efforts of the left and the useful idiots to transform the United States from a nation committed to individual freedom and liberty to a Marxist totalitarian state.
Each Republican, indeed, each American must also make the same choice. Samuel Adams gave the colonists when he said, “It is high time the people of this country explicitly declare whether they will be free, or they will be slaves.” This is the choice we must make today, free or slaves.
If you chose slaves, and you are a Democrat, just keep doing what you have been doing. If you choose slaves and are a Republican that supports the go along to get along faction do what you are doing, and you will become even more of a slave to government. If you are a Freedom Loving American, your choice is to not cause waves and lose your freedoms, or become a part of the “tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of our fellow Americans.” You will no longer shrink from conversing, not arguing and debating, with those who claim they want to be free but are supporting slavery. You must understand that these people will not be convinced in one setting, but you must create a spark in their minds that will enable them to change their own minds. This is what Samuel Adams and Thomas Paine successfully did. It worked for them; it will work for us.
We can discuss and debate the new America last program of the Biden regime, but rather than us argue about this new program, let’s hear how our friends view it. There is no reason to comment on this article taken from the Blaze. Any comments would only be conjecture on my part, so instead of conjecture, you can read directly how America’s friends view this new policy implemented by the Democrats of America last.
Sky News Australian host James Morrow blasted President Joe Biden over the weekend, hammering Biden for being "determined to weaken America's standing, her military, and emboldening her and our enemies."
Speaking in a monologue on Anzac Day — Australia and New Zealand's version of Veterans Day — Morrow said Biden is "making a mockery" of America and its allies.
"Today is Anzac Day, when we commemorate all those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedoms and fighting very often side by side with soldiers from the United States," Morrow began.
"Which is why today, it is so depressing to look at what is happening to the U.S. under Joe Biden, who seems, for whatever reason, determined to weaken America's standing, her military, and emboldening her and our enemies, making a mockery of a century's worth of shared sacrifice," he continued.
Morrow went on to bash Biden for his "green eco warrior posturing" — citing Biden being the only person on a virtual meeting with world leaders to wear a face covering — which he predicted would only embolden American enemies.
"The Biden administration's push to go green and force its friends and allies like Australia to do the same, even as China is allowed to keep emitting and growing willy-nilly, is also going to weaken America's ability to project power around the world," Morrow said. "And that's bad news for all of us."
"Now, as enemies circle, Biden is also proposing making cuts in real terms to America's national defense budget, and yet the biggest so-called improvements to the U.S. military under Biden have involved, yes, making sure that the Special Operations Command has a chief of diversity, though even that blew up like a Wile E. Coyote booby trap when it was revealed that the new inclusion czar spent his spare time comparing [Former President Donald] Trump to Hitler on Twitter," Morrow continued.
The result of projecting weakness, according to Morrow, is that China and Russia will exploit such weaknesses.
I gotta say, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [Chinese President] Xi [Jinping] must be quaking in their boots … or more likely laughing. Because, ever since Biden took office, both men have been seeking to cause instability and probe Biden and his weaknesses, which go a lot further than just being unable to string together a coherent sentence. China is looking increasingly muscular when it comes to Taiwan, while Russia is conducting an unprecedented military buildup on the borders of Ukraine, actions which, whether they lead to actual conflict or not, have already raised the prospect of how Biden will or will not respond.
But former President Donald Trump understood this phenomenon, which is why American allies welcomed Trump projecting strength.
"Now, Donald Trump, for all his flaws, understood that thugs like Xi and Putin spoke in the language of force and that, as bullies, they would be goaded by weakness," Morrow said. "As Trump's former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted the other day, quote, 'Strength deters bad guys, weakness begets war.'"
He added, "As we honor the sacrifices of the Anzac Day fallen, let us hope that Biden learns this lesson to avoid more such sacrifices in the future."
30 Black civilians have been shot by police in the first three months of 2021. That is shot and not necessarily killed. We are being told that the police must be reimagined, reformed. What that means is that the concept of local police forces must be abandoned, and all police must be nationalized.
Al Sharpton called for nationalizing the police force at his annual National Action Network conference.
Billionaire statist George Soros has been helping Obama and globalist forces to federalize control over American police forces under the guise of pushing “criminal justice reform,” hacked e-mails and documents from his shadowy Open Society “philanthropic” empire revealed.
Under the guise of civil rights, President Obama is using last year’s Ferguson riots to go after police forces around the country. Last Monday he told reporters, “We have a great opportunity… to really transform how we think about community law enforcement relations.” …“We need to seize that opportunity… this is something that I’m going to stay very focused on in the months to come.”
Obama then instructed the media to help him with his propaganda campaign to federalize the nation’s police forces; telling the media, “I expect our friends in the media to really focus on what’s in this report and pay attention to it.”
Is the emphasis on nationalizing police, defunding police, and investigating police the proper place to receive so much attention or should the concern and attention be placed on the family; the fatherless family, the family with no discipline, the family where school is not important, the family where kids run free, the family that kids leave for the life of a gang member, a gang that is more family to them than are fathers, mothers, siblings, and relatives, a family that has never gone to Sunday School or Church? This is the family that has been created by the “War on Poverty”, by welfare programs, by rewarding single mothers for having children out of wedlock but placing no responsibility on this single mother for the behavior of the child and certainly placing no responsibility on any kind on the father.
This is what the Democrat party and big government has created within different communities in primarily the inner cities as they encourage and reward an irresponsible and out of control situation in which defunding the police or nationalizing the police would only enhance.
Three people were killed, and 22 others wounded in shootings across Chicago this weekend.
New York City weekend bloodshed leaves 31 people shot, 6 killed.
A deadly weekend took shape in Baltimore. The violence sparked when two city sanitation workers were gunned down — one fatally — Friday evening, with the shooting continuing late into the night with another person killed and a woman shot and picking back up Saturday morning when a young man was shot to death, police said.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives are investigating two homicides that occurred Sunday afternoon — one in Compton and the other in Lennox.
The killings come less than a day after the Sheriff’s Department reported three separate homicides in Pico Rivera, near Los Angeles International Airport and in East Los Angeles.
2 killed, 12 injured in St. Louis shootings over the weekend.
The 30 Black civilians shot by the police in the first three months of this year are much less than the number of Black civilians that are killed each weekend across the nation. It is a mere fraction of the number shot or stabbed. Yet, this is not a national story, it receives no attention from the so-called Reverends, Sharpton, and Jackson. It receives no attention from BLM. It receives no attention from Waters, James, Pelosi, Biden, or Harris. In fact, we might conjecture that it is heralded by these people because they use it to further their false narrative that the United States is a racist nation. They refuse to note that these shootings and killings are Black on Black; young gang members mostly who have never lived in strong traditional families.
These people are not even statistics to the left despite their cries for social justice. Every single American who cares about life, should be marching in the streets demanding family reform, not more welfare, not more special programs, for sure not police reform, but school reform, less government and more individual responsibility, but most of all a return to the values and principles we find in the Bible, yes a return to Christian values which means a return to Sunday School and Church.
Putin in Russia
Putin ratchets up effort to crush Navalny's opposition with closed-door hearing.
Putin aims to declare Navalny and his supporters as extremists.
Russian officials will conduct a closed-door hearing using state-secret evidence on Monday that could declare Navalny’s political group and Anti-Corruption Foundation extremist organizations, according to reports out of Moscow.
If prosecutors win the arguments, Navalny’s and his supporters could be placed on the same legal footing as Islamic extremist groups such as al Qaeda in the eyes of the Russian government.
Just wearing a short with Navalny’s slogan, "Russia will be happy" could result in jail time.
The apparent show trial comes as Navalny and his supporters have been under ever-increasing pressure.
Democrats in the United States
Democrats vow to punish Trump supporters.
The Democrats despise President Trump and his legion of loyal supporters. Now they’re threatening to destroy your life if you ever supported Trump.
Robert Reich, who worked with Democrats Obama and Clinton in the past, has said “When this nightmare is all over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”
Chris Hayes, Left-wing talking head from MSNBC, agreed with the idea of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission and it should include people who don’t believe in wearing masks to stop the spread of COVID-19.
THIS Should Scare the Hell Out of Every American: Democrats Promise to Persecute Trump Supporters if They Take White House… AND THEY MEAN IT!
Elizabeth Warren calls for the creation of a Justice Department task force to investigate and prosecute corruption and immigration “violations” committed by the Trump administration. This plan is hatched while the Democrats/media excuse the Biden corruption entirely.
Nancy Pelosi blasted President Trump and Republican lawmakers, calling them “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state”.
Supporters of then-President Donald Trump held a rally in Washington DC on January 6. 439 people have been arrested and charged with crimes. The FBI is seeking the public's help to identify people who took part in the rally.
MICHAEL SHERWIN federal prosecutor: After the 6th, we had an inauguration on the 20th. So I wanted to ensure, and our office wanted to ensure that there was shock and awe, that we could charge as many people as possible before the 20th. And it worked because we saw through media posts that people were afraid to come back to D.C. because they're like, "If we go there, we're gonna get charged." ... We wanted to take out those individuals that essentially were thumbing their noses at the public for what they did.
So now it’s clear. It wasn’t that 400 people broke actual laws. No, their crime, said the federal prosecutor, was "thumbing their noses at the public," meaning the Democratic Party. It wasn’t "insurrection." It was showing disrespect to Joe Biden and his enforcers like Michael Sherwin, and that can’t happen.
That’s why Michael Sherwin decided to use "shock and awe" — to teach them a permanent lesson about expressing their political opinions. As Sherwin explained, "the scope and scale of this investigation are really unprecedented, not only in FBI history but probably DOJ history."
AGAIN, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE, OTHER THAN GEOGRAPHICAL?
We are being told by the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) movement that our local police forces are racist and indiscriminately kill black people, therefore they must be reimagined or reformed. The narrative being pushed by the left is a lie. And the terms reimagined and reformed as used, mean something different from the conventional meanings..
I understand that logical arguments and facts are difficult for the indoctrinated, those who believe the propaganda, and the intimidated to accept. Former KGB officer Yuri Bezmenov, who had defected to the west, said in an interview that those who were demoralized or brainwashed, will not accept true information. “The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures; even if I take him by force and show him........he will refuse to believe it, until he receives a kick in his fan bottom,” Bezmenov said.
So, these facts are not for the brainwashed, but those of you who are fence sitters, or afraid to get in the fray. For the last five years, the police have fatally shot about 1,000 civilians annually, the vast majority of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. The Washington Post’s database of fatal police shootings showed this included 14 unarmed Black victims and 25 unarmed White victims in 2019. Even though shootings of Blacks are less, the publicity is far greater giving a completely wrong impression. The shooting of an unarmed White person often does not even reach the local news in a medium to large city much less regional or national news outlets.
This is done on purpose so the ultimate goal can be achieved, he ultimate goal to nationalize all police. This we learned when the headline read, “Obama Unveils Plan to Further Nationalize Local Police”. In addition, George Soros assisted Obama and globalist forces to federalize control over American police forces under the guise of pushing “criminal justice reform”.
Other collectivists have found this strategy is necessary to bring about the control of a population.
Lenin had the Cheka. The Cheka was the much-feared Bolshevik security agency, formed to identify and eradicate counter-revolutionary activity. The Cheka is sometimes referred to as the Bolshevik ‘secret police’, though most Russians were well aware of its existence and activities.
The OVRA was the secret police of the Kingdom of Italy, founded in 1927 under the regime of dictator Benito Mussolini.
In 1933, Hitler appointed Göring minister of the interior for the German state of Prussia. There, Göring established the Gestapo.
China's paramilitary police force is now commanded by the Chinese Communist Party's armed forces, the latest sign of the leadership's resolve to centralize power. The move put the force, which maintains domestic security, squarely under the command of President Xi Jinping, who is also head of the military.
Nancy Pelosi, an American Collectivist, labeled Donald Trump and the Republican party “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state”. This refrain has been uttered by many on the left and is used as a rallying cry as they seek to reimagine, reform, or nationalize the police.
Today, the FBI functions as the police force of the Democrat Party as they spy on the opponents of the party, arrests those who oppose the party, and contribute to the propaganda published by the party to bring about the desired ends. The local police forces in the United States must be nationalized for the Democrat party in the United States to have the control that Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler, Xi, and so many other collectivists knew they needed to bring about the total control desired and necessary.
The more the Democrat party can demonize the local police forces using the totally false narrative that local police are racist and go about indiscriminately killing Black people, the less opposition they will have from so many gullible and unsuspecting members of society who claim to favor individual liberty and freedom. The indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation continue unchecked by the Obama’s Sorros’s, and Pelosi’s whose end goal is to have total control over the lives and thoughts of the American people.
"Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%." Thomas Jefferson, echoed by the rest of our founders.
“Democracy is like two wolves and a lamb voting on what to eat for lunch, but a republic is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.” Alexander Hamilton, echoed by the rest of our founders.
“The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind,” Thomas Jefferson, echoed by the rest of our founders.
Our founders recognized the secret war that occurs under a democracy, a war for power and control. The secret war is fought in many political systems. There is a reason Plato said, “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy.”
We are constantly told by those who seek to transform the United States that we are a democracy and not a republic. They support transforming the United States to a democracy for the very reasons our founders rejected democracy and made us a republic. These who seek to transform us understand that not only is democracy mob rule, ignores that liberties come from our Creator and not government, and becomes a dictatorship are the very reasons they are calling for democracy.
Democracy is necessary to bring about socialism, socialism is the gateway to communism, and communism can only be achieved if there is a time of rule where the government is a despotic “dictatorship of the proletariat.” This is the road the left is following and it is the same road outlined by Marx and Lenin. This is “The Road to Tyranny”.
What I have stated is echoed by a well know and self-declared communist, Van Jones. Van Jones was brought into prominence by Valerie Jarrett of the Obama regime. Jarrett and Obama both being communists as well. Jones was named to be the “green jobs czar”, but was forced to resign when a tape was revealed where Jones gave his honest opinion about conservatives. It was the same opinion held by Obama and the other communists in his regime, but Jones became the sacrificial lamb. He is now a hero to the left.
Jones reacted to former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin’s conviction on three charges in the death of George Floyd. Jones said that the verdict can be “something new.” He said the people voting and protesting “worked” to bring justice to Floyd and his family.
“This was not the system working. This was people making the system work. That’s the key,” Jones emphasized. “Don’t forget — initially, the police report said, oh, it’s a medical incident, somebody died. What do we know? The initial charging document for the local prosecutor was a joke. Literally, a piece of tissue paper that somebody sneezed on. Nothing. People rose up and said we’re not going to let this go. The governor stepped in; gave the case to Keith Ellison, who is an African-American Muslim progressive guy that everybody rallied around before to get in office. Keith Ellison put so many resources on the table. You’ve never seen a prosecution like that of anybody.”
Jones continued, “And so what happened is the voting worked. You can tell the young people now voting matters. The protesting worked. You can tell young people marching matters. And the truth. The fact that people got involved with their video cameras and captured it. Citizen engagement matters. So, there’s a formula now to show people we can make the system work for change. That’s what’s new.”
The real questions that must be answered in a republic that values freedom and liberty are, “was justice served or did the judge and jury render the verdict that was demanded by the mob?” It appears that mob rule certainly played a critical part in this verdict. Biden demanded the “right” verdict. Waters said if the verdict was not guilty there must be confrontation. A witness for the defense was terrorized. The judge and jury understood their lives, the lives of their families, and their property was at stake, unless the “right” verdict was rendered.
What is the truth of the situation. We know there is reason to believe that the knee of the back was probably not the reason for death. It does not matter. Mob rule and intimidation prevailed. Democracy worked. And now we know why our founders rejected democracy; they favored individual liberty, freedom, and a judicial system that sought to discover the truth. And now we know why the left favors democracy; mob rule, intimidation, socialism, communism, and loss of the protection of a Constitution that has as its core the protection of individual rights and liberties for a despotic “dictatorship of the proletariat”.
We who call ourselves Freedom Loving Americans must understand what Freedom is and we must understand what American means. For two long we have allowed the left and the so-called moderate Republicans to control the narrative. This destructive element to freedom has convinced the public that they have taken the high road, when in fact they are today on the road to tyranny and perhaps have gone through the gates of tyranny.
Freedom is to be free of the constraints placed upon the individual by government. Our Declaration of Independence specifically stated that our rights and liberties come from our Creator and not man nor government. Our rights are inalienable or unable to be given away or to be taken from us. Our Constitution was ratified on the condition that these rights and liberties be more clearly defined so the Bill of Rights was added to be a part of the Constitution. After listing certain rights and liberties, the founders elected to add the 9th Amendment which states: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
To be American means to have the desire and ambition to be self-reliant and reject a large government, which is tyranny, that controls the lives and thoughts of the people. Thus, our Constitution was designed to protect the liberty and freedom of the people from the tyranny of government. In our Constitution, the powers the government received were given to government by we the people. These specific powers are listed in Article I and Section 8 of the United States Constitution.
These are examples of how government was viewed by the founders and how government should be viewed today if we are to be free.
‘Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.” Thomas Paine
“A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.” Thomas Jefferson
In today’s America, any of us who espouse these very principles upon which our nation was founded, are demonized and ostracized by the left and the so-called moderate Republicans. Because we strongly advocate for the freedom of an individual to pursue their dreams, we are called racist. And yet we do not specify that the individual be of a certain race, nationality, religion, or sex, but only that they be an individual. This is the very definition of non-racist. We do not assume that those who are like us or those who have different physical attributes from us are more or less capable because of their physical characteristics. We advocate they be allowed achieve or fail based on their individual talents and desires. We also respect the dreams of the individual, understanding that what is defined as success and achievement of a dream is unique to the individual and not necessarily unique because of their physical characteristics. We see only individuals, not groups.
We who believe in self-reliance as opposed to government reliance, which is a critical principle upon which our nation was founded, built, and critical to our uniqueness and greatness, are now condemned as being self-absorbed, selfish, heartless, and with no compassion. The truth is exactly the opposite. It is this principle of individualism that has proven to reduce poverty, reduce misery, reduce crime, and reduce chaos while it enhances opportunity, raises the standard of living, and increases happiness and individual, family, and societal stability.
The concept of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressivism, - all virtually the same), that is being proclaimed by a definite anti-American faction in our nation, is today the moving force behind promoting the rejection of our founding principles and calling for the destruction of our American society. It is this collectivist faction that is creating disharmony, promoting a government controlled and dependent society, insisting on creating division based only on physical characteristics, fostering hatred, and promoting immorality and evil. But at the same time claiming they are the people promoting just the opposite. What in fact this collectivist movement is promoting is communism with all its failures and evil that has been responsible for the enslavement of billions and murder of millions, while bringing chaos, poverty, misery, crime, and indescribable hardships to the masses.
If we who are true Freedom Loving Americans, we who believe in and understand the greatness of our founding principles, are to reverse this evilness promulgated by this collectivist movement, we must become as resolved in our actions as we claim to be in our beliefs.
We can no longer adhere to political correctness by using the euphemisms demanded by the collectivists. Yes, they will demonize us, ostracize us, and try to minimize us when we insist on using accurate terms such as China Virus, illegal aliens, male, female, protest, riot, crime, education, indoctrination, propaganda, intimidation, and so many more. We must refute that people are less capable and need advantages simply because of physical characteristics. We must understand that government aid is the primary reason for the destruction of the family and the single biggest contributor to crime, while being a collectivist necessity of taking from one to give to another and building a government dependent populace. We must start to call murder and child sacrifice just that and not choice. We must call depravity and deviancy what they are and not diversity.
Most importantly, we must understand why we believe what we believe, understand the evil and destruction of collectivism, and then began to confront these evils directly and accurately. Equivocating, compromising, and shrinking because of the intimidating assault to which we will be subjugated, is the exact reason we are in the very position we find ourselves.
The anti-American movement, the collectivist movement, wants us to believe their effort to segregate, their effort to divide, their effort to bring chaos, and their effort to transform the United States is an inclusive movement that creates harmony and prosperity. This has been the same song sung by every collectivist movement, and we know the history. Do not be deceived, do not be intimidated, but be bold, be courageous, be an individual standing for individual liberty and freedom, be an American.
There is much discussion today about “rule of law”. Much like the term “bipartisan”, the definition of “rule of law’ can be manipulated to fit any agenda.
The United Nations define the rule of law as “a principle of governance in which all persons, institutions and entities, public and private, including the State itself, are accountable to laws that are publicly promulgated, equally enforced, and independently adjudicated.” This is a classic definition which includes that the law be written, published, easy to understand, and be applied equally and independently. the United Nations did add another part, that the laws should be “consistent with international human rights norms and standards.” Of course, human rights norms and standards have become very flexible especially since many of the worst offenders of what has been reasonably accepted as human rights are responsible for setting the standards.
Enter Karl Marx. He called the rule of law “a great and dangerous illusion” that unfortunately the working classes naively believed. In fact, Marx and Engels taught in the Manifesto of the Communist Party, the so-called rule of law is “but the will of the bourgeoisie made into a law for all, a will whose essential character and direction are determined by the economic conditions of existence of the bourgeoisie.” In other words, the bourgeoisie first makes a law protecting only its power, then instills in the proletarians the false idea that it is a “universal” law protecting all citizens. Happily, Marx said, the solution was at hand. The Communist revolution would soon allow the proletarians to establish their own rule of law, whose custodian and only authorized interpreter will be the Communist Party.
In a book, Xi Jinping insisted that the Manifesto of the Communist Party remains the CCP’s, and his own, fundamental theoretical text. Xi’s idea of the rule of law is, essentially, Marx’s. This means that the first commandment of Xi’s thought on the rule of law is that a Communist country such as China “will not copy the models and practices of other countries, nor will it follow the so-called ‘constitutional government,’ ‘separation of powers,’ or ‘independent judiciary’ of the West.” This is nicely said. Constitutional government, separation of powers, and an independent judiciary are the essential components of the rule of law according to the United Nations’ definition.
But not according to Xi’s “new” definition. Building on Marx, Xi regards the rule of law as the principle that all should respect the laws, but the laws should respect the CCP, and be interpreted according to the CCP’s orders, directives, and interests. Xi’s thought’s core principle is that “the socialist rule of law must adhere to the CCP’s leadership.” The legal system should work “correctly handling the relationship between politics and the rule of law, and deeply understanding that the Party and the law, the Party’s leadership and the rule of law, are highly unified.” This means that “the socialist rule of law must adhere to the CCP’s leadership.” In the United Nations’ definition and the democratic understanding of the concept, rule of law means that the government too should obey the law. In Xi Jinping’s thought on the rule of law, the law should obey the government or, more precisely, the CCP.
Under the democratic concept of the rule of law, judges and others involved in the justice system should faithfully apply the law. French philosopher Montesquieu famously said that a good judge is “only the mouth that pronounce the words of the law.” Under Xi Jinping’s thought on the rule of law, China should “make it a basic requirement for legal service personnel to uphold the leadership of the CCP.” The law should be used, or not used, or if necessary misused, as the CCP deems fit.
Sometimes, Chinese propaganda insists that, unlike the West, China does not try to export its ideology abroad. Xi’s own speeches prove that this is just propaganda, and that in fact “Xi Jinping’s thought on the rule of law,” with its vitriolic Marxist criticism of democracy, is intended for export and not for the Chinese domestic market only.
The thoughts of Marx and Xi have been exported to the United States and are now the Democrat party or the Communist Party of the United States thoughts on rule of law. The Communist Party of the United States (Democrat party) now applies its own set or rules and laws pertaining to the way in which national law enforcement agencies, such as the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the CIA apply the law differently depending on the political persuasion of the individual under investigation.
Specific examples of the above would be the non-indictment of Hillary Clinton for clearly breaking laws and the indictment and prosecution of General Flynn for what we now know was a setup by the FBI. We had the impeachment of President Trump for what was called inciting an insurgency while members of the Communist Party of the United States call for riots in the streets and raise funds for bail for those who are arrested for such actions. We see the indictment of a white police officer who mistakenly shot instead of tasered a black thug who had outstanding warrants for his arrest which he was resisting arrest and the non-action for a black police officer who shot an unarmed white lady with no prior arrests and with no outstanding warrants but who by every indication was an outstanding and respectful citizen.
There are countless examples of the Communist Party of the United States (Democrats) employing the same standard set forth by Marx and Xi where rule of law is “that whose custodian and only authorized interpreter will be the Communist Party”. In an effort to reinforce this communist standard for rule of law, the Communist Party of the United States is now attempting to add more Supreme Court Justices who will also apply this same standard of the law being that “the law is whatever the Communist Party of the United States declares the law to be”.
YES, The United State is a divided nation. We have one faction in the United States that believes in the supremacy of the individual; that is that each individual should be free to make their own decisions, live their own live, and be responsible for the consequences of their own decisions. The other faction believes that the group is superior to the individual and those who would deviate from the dictates of the group must be punished and ostracized.
Societies that favor the individualist approach will be more free and more prosperous. These societies understand that the freedom to prosper and excel is the driving force behind that freedom and prosperity. Prosperity is infinite and the increased prosperity of one will result in a multiplier that increases prosperity for all. Prosperity has brought about societies that are freer, more accepting, more encouraging, higher standards of living with much lower rates of poverty, crime, illiteracy, and unhappiness.
Societies that favor the collectivist approach will result in control of the people by the self-designated elite or dictatorship. Individuals who refuse to conform to the demands of the elite will be ostracized, demonized, separated, and ultimately eliminated. As aspirations and dreams are discouraged, indeed punished, innovation and advancement decline as does freedom and prosperity. Poverty, crime, illiteracy, and unhappiness increase exponentially. Families break apart. Alcohol and drug dependency, increase, and as natural order to society declines, order is maintained through a system of arbitrary law imposed by the elite.
The collectivist movement is antithetical to human nature. All people are not the same. We have different dreams and aspirations. As children we do not recognize different physical characteristics of people such as skin color, we have no idea about differences in nationalities or religions, we are accepting until we are taught to hate. The collectivist movement has proven that it survives based on creating hate between different groups, making one group the victim and the other the oppressor. Racism and hate are critical for the advancement and maintenance of a collectivist society.
The individualist movement is hindered by racism and hate. Individualists believe that we are all unique and have qualities critical to a free and prosperous society. We champion and encourage any individual who will strive to set the bar higher for all of us, whether that bar is in the field of medicine, exploration, artistic achievements, athletic achievements, business achievements, or achievements in the humanities. Freedom and prosperity abound because when one goal has been achieved, it establishes another goal for somebody else to reach.
The collectivist movement demands conformity. The individualist movement demands individuality. The collectivist movement insists on indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation to achieve and control the power over the many by the few. The individualist movement requires education, facts and honesty, and encouragement and recognition.
The United States was founded as an individualist nation. Those who would call themselves conservatives or Freedom Loving Americans still adhere to the fundamentals of individualism. Those who have proclaimed that the United States must be transformed, are telling us that the United States must become a collectivist nation. Which movement prevails will determine the future course for the United States. The results of the different philosophies are inevitable.
Choices and decisions must be made. Those who determine to take the course of least resistance and do nothing are in fact making a choice. Freedom and prosperity, or individualism is the more difficult road to follow because it requires positive action. Enslavement or collectivism is a simple road to follow because it requires no action or negative action. What will you choose?
