We need a feel good story for this Labor Day and what better feel good story could there be than the incredible story of Melania Trump. Every American can and should be proud of this beautiful and poised lady. A lady that was born in a Communist country, Yugoslavia, and still rose above all the barriers placed in front of her by that collectivist government.
Melania Trump speaks six, yes six languages. This is five more than most Americans speak. She speaks French, English, Slovenian, German, Italian, Serbo-Croatian. Anyone who has heard her speak English, not her native language, can only agree that she speaks it much more correctly than do native English speakers with college degrees. Just listen to them when they are being interviewed on CNN or MSNBC.
In 2001, Melania became a permanent resident of the United States. She married Donald Trump in 2005 and obtained U.S. citizenship in 2006. She is the second first lady (after Louisa Adams) born outside the United States, and the first one to be a naturalized citizen.
Watching Melania Trump represent the United States at functions inside and outside our borders can only bring pride to all United States citizens. Thank you Melania, and know that you are admired by your fellow citizens. We all feel good because you are in the forefront representing our nation.
We can learn a great deal about the values of an individual by learning who they admire. For instance, Thomas Jefferson greatly admired John Locke. John Locke believed that natural rights such as life, liberty, and property were given to man by the Creator and thus the only role government would play when it came to natural rights would be to protect those rights. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Amongst them, the right to life, to liberty, and to the pursuit of happiness.
Thomas Jefferson was also a fierce advocate for a limited government. Jefferson also gave us the proper role of government when he said, “The government is best which governs the least.” Jefferson understood that those in government have a natural propensity to dictate to others how they are to live their lives and how they are to think.
Bernie Sanders is just the opposite of Jefferson. Sanders believes that it is government who should control natural rights and govern the most, because all people must be told how they are to live their lives and how they are to think. We know this to be true because those who practice that doctrine are those Sanders admires.
Bernie Sanders said, “It’s funny sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing,” when talking about bread lines in the Soviet Union.
Bernie Sanders take on Cuba: "For better or for worse, the Cuban revolution is a very profound and very deep revolution. Much deeper than I had understood," Sanders wrote. "More interesting than their providing their people with free health care, free education, free housing ... is that they are in fact creating a very different value system than the one we are familiar with."
Bernie Sanders endorsed an article that claimed, "These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who's the banana republic now?"
Now we see Bernie Sanders view on Communist China. “But what we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership, is, if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, OK?” he said. “So, they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”
Yes, you can learn much about the values of an individual when you understand who their hero’s are.
It Is sad when a not so bright person in their prime becomes senile. Joe Biden has always been regarded as gaffe prone. He has been accused of speaking before thinking, but in his defense, his thinking ability has always been limited. You throw senility in with a limited reasoning ability and you have a Maxine Waters, a Barbara Jordan, a Barbara Boxer, a Nancy Pelosi and the male representative in this limited intellectual class Joe Biden.
Joe Biden has been an opportunist and his being in the right place at the right time took him from the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he along with other Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) prohibited the United States from benefiting from having one of the brightest legal minds of all time, Judge Bork, from sitting on the Supreme Court, to the Vice President where he continued his role of accomplishing nothing but staying in the spotlight because of his limited gaffe prone mind.
Today we are seeing how senility has limited even more his already limited intellect. My health care plan will not be quality, but the premiums will be higher. What he stated was true, not only of his so-called plan but it is true of every proposal we have seen from the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidates. This is true of any government program, but the rule the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have always followed and must follow, is never state the truth. Biden in the past had adhered to this rule. Senility caught up with him.
The other day Biden told the small group of people that stopped to hear him, that he was not nuts. That anybody would have to say this shows that there is reason to believe that in fact you are. The last two or so months show that the American public is believing that Joe Biden is even more limited today than he was in the past and in fact may be in the class of Maxine Waters.
Biden’s support for president was never support for Biden, but was support based on what his wife said, despite the limitations of my husband, you must support him because he is the only candidate that is electable. Jill Biden is a wise woman. She is not senile and yes, she spoke the truth. Nevertheless, her husband has gone from gaffe prone to unelectable. The polls are showing the soft support he had to be no support leaving the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) with absolute collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, - all virtually the same) Sanders, Warren, and Harris. How sad.
Politically, this is good, I think. Although politically, to have Biden on the debate stage and on the campaign trail would have been worse than Hillary in 2016. It is still sad to see an individual on the national stage be so pathetic. Unlike a cruel and inhumane individual like Bill Maher, who said he hoped David Kock died a very painful death just because he had political differences, we conservatives would hope that limited and senile Joe would quickly fade into the shadows and go to pasture in his palatial mansion he purchased with funds he indirectly received from China and Ukraine via his sons.
Joe, you are no longer running for Senate in Delaware, but you are on a national stage and you are not up to the task. Refrain from continuing to embarrass yourself and claim a health reason why you must drop out of the race. Nobody will question it. I am sure it is painful for Jill to watch because it is painful for us conservatives. That is because we have compassion for individuals, even limited and senile individuals.
Books have been written, articles have been written, and speeches have been made by collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, and Democrats – all virtually the same) explaining what it is they wish to accomplish. Today, these evil elitists have determined that if they modify the word socialist by placing the adjective democratic in front of it that this will somehow miraculously alter the course and inevitable destruction collectivist policies always bring. Collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same), always brings financial and social collapse that bring about societies of despair, societies of devastation, and societies with no hope.
This is always the result of the policies professed by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party in the United States today. These are policies that destroy and do not build, despite what the Biden’s, Sander’s, Warren’s, and Harris’s would want you to believe. They will use modifier after modifier to try to convince the American public that their plan of evil and destruction is somehow superior to the evil and destructive plans of Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez, FDR, and Obama. They are all the same.
Once in awhile one of the Comrades will make a mistake and define succinctly what the goal and the plan of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) is. Bruno Bauer was a student of Hegel, as were Marx and Engels. Bauer described communism as that which would tend to subject all human activity and thought to itself, so that freedom of thought and human individuality would be destroyed, and the creative activity of mind replaced by a code of official dogma. Dogma is a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true.
This is the essence of Marx’s call for a totally conforming and equal classless society. All must think as the state directs and individuals must forsake their individuality. This is what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is professing today. All must agree with their collectivist ideals, and if you do not you are a racist, a homophobe, a sexist, and evil. This is what the enforcers of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) ideology are stating today. College professors, high school teachers, grade school teachers, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa, to name a few are enforcers. If you disagree with the collectivist ideology you will fail, you will be beaten, you will be silenced, and yes, you will be eliminated.
Bauer stated the reality so clearly, the collectivist movement can only tolerate conformity. The reason for this is clear. Their policies always end in financial and social collapse with societies of despair, devastation, and hopeless. Thank you, Bauer, for being so succinct.
“Two Visions of America” is now available on www.mygrandchildrensamerica.com. It will be available on Amazon shortly. Learn what these two visions are.
It is not politically correct to recognize that indeed the United States is a unique nation. We were founded on a completely different basis than were other nations. Americans do no longer know, never did know, and are not being taught that our founding was unique and why the basis on which we were founded was the principle reason our Revolution was different from other revolutions and why those principles propelled the United States to become a beacon of hope and freedom for the oppressed in the world.
A collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement is trying to rewrite our history and distort the facts of history. They have a defined purpose for this deceit. This movements goal is to replace those founding principles because their belief system is closely if not totally aligned with the principles from which we revolted.
If you are a Freedom Loving American who believes in individual freedom and limited government, it is very important you that you understand the basis upon which we were founded, why these were so revolutionary, and why it was those very principles that enabled the United States to grow to become, not just the economic and military force it became, but also that it became a nation that championed freedom and liberty for all. Once you have learned and understand our history, then you can teach your children and grandchildren because they are not learning this vision of America in school. Our schools are teaching the other vision of America, the vision of government sovereignty and citizen enslavement.
When you order “Two Visions of America,” I would strongly suggest you order “The Road to Tyranny” as well, if you have not. Both books will give you an accurate historical perspective and a clearly drawn distinction between the forces at work in the United States today.
Bernie Sanders is a Communist. Communism goes beyond socialism in that it not only seeks to control all economic aspects of a society, it also seeks to control all activities of the people including how they live their lives and how they think. Karl Marx explained that his desired classless society would be a totally conforming society; all people must think and act alike and hold the state as divine. In order to accomplish this, Marx and Lenin understood that the family unit must be destroyed, and the worker unions must become the dominant unit of society. This was the predominant theme of Marx, Lenin, and Sanders.
When Bernie Sanders went to the Soviet Union for his honeymoon, he commented on the glories of communism and how orderly and beneficial the bread lines were. He apparently also feels the control of the state over the lives of its people through strong and mandatory labor unions is also glorious. Sanders, who acclaims all things communist, now has come out with a plan to force unions in America, despite the fact that many American workers wish to opt out of the union and specifically go to “right to work” states. A side comment; isn’t it interesting that states that allow one to work without belonging to a union are called “right to work.” I think that is very descriptive because in those situations you receive based on production and not mere existence as advocated for by those like Marx, Lenin, and Sanders and practiced by unions.
This is the plan of Sanders to unionize the United States and truly bring about his belief so aptly stated by Marx: “from each according to their ability to each according to their need.”
Elimination of Secret-Ballot Elections to unionize;
Government to force union contracts on newly unionized companies and their employees;
Elimination of ALL ‘Right-to-Work’ states, forcing all unionized employees to pay union fees or be fired;
Classify independent contractors and supervisors as “employees” for the purpose of unionization and other workplace entitlements;
Allow unions to unionize franchisors and franchisees as a single employer;
Give federal government workers the ability to strike;
Put state labor relations under federal control;
Force companies that acquire or merge with another company to accept the prior employer’s union contract;
“Blacklisting” employers from any federal contracts if they engage in practices the Sanders Administration deems to be anti-union or anti-worker;
Ban hiring new (permanent) employees to replace striking workers during economic strikes;
Create Wage Boards to “set wages, benefits and hours across entire industries, not just employer-by-employer”;
Allow unions in labor disputes to target an employer’s customers and suppliers (called a “secondary boycott”);
Give unions ‘equal time’ by requiring companies to disclose anti-union information they disseminate to workers and provide for equal time for organizing agents
Enact “Medicare for All,” then require companies with union health plans to “enter into new contract negotiations overseen by the National Labor Relations Board….all company savings that result from reduced health care contributions from Medicare for All will accrue equitably to workers in the form of increased wages or other benefits.”
Under Sanders’ Medicare for All plan, “the plan will ensure that union-sponsored clinics and other providers are integrated within the Medicare for All system, and kept available for members.”
In the United States today, the fact is, if you support any aspect of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party, you are supporting an agenda that wishes to take the United States down “The Road to Tyranny” or from a free and independent individualist society to a tyrannical society that is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same).
If you are a conservative that is registered as a Republican, you will remember as do I, that we had to hold our noses and turn our heads when we cast a vote, not for McCain or Romney, but against Comrade Obama. Those of us who took the time to review who this person was, this person who could read better than most from a teleprompter, was a collectivist at the far left end. Yes, we knew he was a strong adherent to the ideology his grandfather and Frank Marshall Davis instilled in him in his formative years; the ideology of Marxism or Communism.
Both McCain and Romney reverted to calling themselves conservatives in their quest for the nomination, even though nothing in their record indicated they had any idea what a conservative believed; limited government, low taxation, individualism, and adherence to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights. The Republican establishment, those like John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Kevin McCarthy told us that these two imposters should be the nominee because they were the most electable, even though they had no strong belief system about anything but more government and more taxes. What happened was Comrade Obama was elected and became the second most notorious president, second only to FDR, for the destruction and obliteration of the Constitution of the United States and the principles of freedom and independence.
Now the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are being told the same thing. The base of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party has become a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, - all virtually the same) party that advocates against the freedom of the individual and for the tyranny by the collective. Joe Biden is the same as McCain and Romney in that the three have never held strong principles except the principle of what would advance their own political career.
These self-promoting positions seem to have appeal. They can say anything they want; they can call themselves anything they want, and they can tell any crowd that they should support them because they hold the same beliefs. Apparently, Jill Biden has a very strong desire to live in the White House as she took a line from John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Kevin McCarthy and has stated that principles and beliefs should have no place in politics, only electability counts.
Jill Biden, "I know that not all of you are not committed to my husband, and I respect that," Biden said at a campaign event in Nashua, New Hampshire, to a group of teachers. "But I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who's going to win this race."
She continued, "So I think if your goal -- I know my goal -- is to beat Donald Trump, we have to have someone who can beat him," the former second lady said.
Biden expanded on her remarks in encouraging voters to look beyond singular issues that draw them to other candidates, surmising that the Democratic Party's collective bottom line "has to be that we have to beat Trump."
"Your candidate might be better on, I don't know, health care, than Joe is, but you've got to look at who's going to win this election," she said. "And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, 'OK, I personally like so and so better,' but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump."
Change the names, and we conservatives who are strong advocates of individualism, have had that song sung to us many times. We did not listen to it in 1980 and a conservative was elected. But we bought into it again in 1992, when we learned Daddy Bush really did not have a conservative bone in his body, and every election until 2016. Welcome to the club Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). Will you drink the Kool Aid and nominate a senile has been who never was a been?
That our public schools have become cesspools of collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) indoctrination is no secret. This collectivist indoctrination has been led by Teacher Unions. Remember, the union is to Marxism what a strong family unit is to freedom and independence. Marxism believes the state must indoctrinate the children so they will conform to the Marxist ideology. In a free and independent state, it is critical that parents teach the children their principles, so diversity and free thought prevail. Conformity is critical in a Marxist totalitarian state while diversity is critical for the perpetuation of freedom and independence.
That Teacher Unions support collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) and advocate for all children to be indoctrinated in this evil ideology is no secret. We have numerous examples that support this as fact and not conjecture.
Here is another of those examples. A "delegation" from the Chicago Teachers Union has gained attention after taking a trip to Venezuela and promoting socialist policies and dictator Nicolas Maduro. A CTU organizer and three members took a tour of the economically crippled country, calling themselves a delegation of the union. The trip followed a formal CTU resolution condemning the United States for interfering with Venezuela's disputed regime and calling for America to lift its sanctions against the country.
While on the trip, the group blogged about their experiences on the site Radical Educator Collective, praising the country's "free social programs" which "began under Hugo Chavez, and continue to operate under Nicolas Maduro."
Sarah Chambers, one of the travelers wrote, "While staying in #Venezuela, we didn't see a single homeless person. USA is the richest country in the world; yet, there are homeless people everywhere. Over 17k CPS students are homeless...This is why @CTULocal1 is fighting for fair housing #CTUAgainstVezIntervention."
And in California, the State School Board, supported by the Teacher Unions, is demanding that a part of the curriculum in the public schools is to teach the evils of capitalism and the humanity of socialism.
If you live in California, Illinois, or any state with strong and controlling Teacher Unions, and you want your children to be educated and not indoctrinated, remove them from the public school system immediately.

Sharia UK: Police hunting for man who made a rude joke to a Muslim
Note TellMAMA’s headline: they claim that this man made a “racist slur” against a Muslim. What race is Islam again? In reality, there are Muslims, and Islamic jihadis, of all races. But TellMAMA wants to intimidate Britons into believing that anyone who makes a rude quip to a Muslim is a racist, and thus deserving to have the book thrown at him.
Tell MAMA (Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks) is a national project which records and measures anti-Muslim incidents in the United Kingdom.
But that’s all this was: a quip. Say anything you want: the guy was rude, or his joke was tasteless, or whatever. But an arrestable offense? That’s insane. The Muslim could have laughed it off, or come back with his own counter-quip. Instead, he contacted Tell MAMA, who contacted the police, who, instead of telling them to grow up and stop the endless victimhood posturing, is actually investigating. The cumulative effect of all the many incidents like this one in Britain will be a cowed and submissive populace that doesn’t dare utter the slightest negative word about Muslims or Islam, for fear of prosecution. And that, not coincidentally, is the status Muslims enjoy in Islamic law, which forbids all criticism of Muslims or Islam on pain of death.
A Muslim man was abused by a middle-aged man, who said: “You haven’t come to bomb the place have you?” and then laughed, as they queued to purchase tickets for the Carabao Cup clash between Salford City and Leeds United.
If I was in the UK and made the factual statement that the Prophet Muhammad would have been a close friend of Jeffrey Epstein since both were notorious pedophiles and rapists, would I also be hunted by the police. What about here in the United States? Even though the statement is an accurate statement and verifiable by historical records, does Sharia, in the UK and the US prohibit the protected right of free speech.
Free speech includes speech that some might regard as offensive. If speech is limited based on any definition including such arbitrary definitions as offensive or hate, then speech is no longer free and the very essence of our Constitution and First Amendment would be violated. The slope is slippery and the UK for sure is sliding. The US is not far behind. The speech you advocate should be limited will be lead to your speech being limited next.
What can we discuss the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) continue to cry??????
Now that their absolute guarantee that Trump colluded with Russia to defeat their inept candidate who determined she could not be beaten so did not campaign, has proven to be totally false; they are looking elsewhere. Even with the Mueller investigation that was aligned to prove the false allegation with its investigators being Clinton cronies, but could find no evidence; even with the FBI anti-American and anti-fairness top echelon, who now face serious situations for their deceit and manipulation in their investigation using the Steele novel as though it was factual; and with all aspects of the deep state which is not so deep as it was lead by people such as Lynch, Clapper, Comey, and Brennan could not bring about the downfall of a duly elected president, the Marxist/Progressives are becoming even more desperate.
However, do not sell them short. Never forget that truth, facts, and honor have no place in your opposition when it is your goal to fundamentally transform the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state. When this anti-American, anti-natural rights, pro-government enslavement group believes that the ends always justify the means, there is no limit to what they will do. Remember they are currently trying to overthrow the results of an American election.
What these collectivists (Marxists, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) have come to learn is that even by placing the modifier Democratic in front of Socialism, it has not convinced the American who gets up every morning and goes to work that word tricks alter the evil that is socialism.
What these collectivists have learned is that the American people were led to believe that Obamacare would be good for them but then saw it fail. The American people quickly learned that Obama was a typical Marxist and would say anything, yes lie, to bring about his desired fundamental transformation. When Comrade Obama said “you can keep your plan if you like it;” “you can keep your doctor if you like them;” was nothing more than a ploy to nationalize health coverage and health care. The American people said perhaps this is not a good idea as their premiums, deductibles, and co-pays skyrocketed and access to care was greatly reduced. Consequently, these false promises, no lies, that universal health care is good, are falling on deaf ears.
What these collectivists have learned is that their call for open borders and freebies for all illegal aliens, just so the collectivist party can gain power and eventually bring about the fundamental transformation that will enslave all people to the collectivist government, is not selling anyplace except in the core areas of the collectivist movement. Even in these core areas the people are seeing the horror of socialism as their streets are littered with homeless people who in turn litter the streets with garbage. The reality of socialism is no longer just in Venezuela and Cuba, but it is in major cities in the United States in places like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. The open border argument is proving to be a loser as well.
Now these collectivists have decided they will tout the argument of racism. The bad news for the collectivist is that this argument is also proving to be a loser as the people in those very groups that are supposed to be victims of this false claim of racism are now getting up each morning and going to work and receiving a paycheck, so they no longer have to be regarded as slaves to a collectivist party or government. These so-called victims are learning that they are valuable producers in a free marketplace and that yes, despite what the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have been telling them, they can compete and are valuable. These groups who are refusing to any longer accept their rightful place, according to the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) as victims, are more and more feeling pride in themselves and thus they are rejecting the enslaving mentality that has held them in poverty and dependency for years.
There seems to be no place for the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to turn. Their collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) arguments are all losers. Never forget, that when a collectivist is backed into a corner is when they are the most dangerous. People with no honor or no sense of fairness, will use any tactic to gain their goal of total power over the lives and thought of others. Remember Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Cuba, FDR, and Obama. They are shameless opportunists who firmly believe that the “ends always justify the means.” We will see this same shamelessness used again by those who adhere to the ends proclaimed by the above; the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
