We are able to say debate. The first insight is, if people watched the whole debate, it was evident that Basement Joe became unraveled. It appeared that Basement Joe was truly angry and defensive. I do not recall a time that President was but on the defensive.
A couple of highlights. Joe did nothing to move the minorities to him. If anything, he lost. Joe angered his far left on fracking and healthcare. Joe was not at all clear on the topic of the climate.
President Trump solidified his base. He should have swung some Democrats and Independents. President Trump will post the video where Basement Joe said no fracking. President Trump put before the nation the Biden International Crime Family. The story is becoming bigger and bigger.
I think President Trump sealed the election. The polls were already moving. The election should be able to be called on November 3rd unless the voter fraud is even more massive than anybody could dream.
The question is, will the coat tails of President Trump be long enough to hold the Senate and turn the House. If so, there will be a real move to drain the swamp. That will be best for all America. The lefties will cause problems, however.
What will tonight bring; surprises, chaos, or a calm discussion with Basement Joe telling us what he does after he puts on the lid??? Your guess is as good as any.
What should be front, and center of the debate is the Biden International Crime Family. I do not think the son being a pervert and druggie should be part of this debate but must be investigated by an honest FBI, which will not happen until President Trump nominates a head that has never been a part of the FBI.
We know the moderator will not broach the topic, so it will be left to President Trump. President Trump must bring it up often and demand answers. The idea that this was some Russian hoax or this is some smear campaign is beyond question, it was not but it was Where is Hunter’s laptop with his email and his photos.
Even the Deep State controlled FBI thinks so. They released this statement: “The Federal Bureau of Investigation announced this evening that the information contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop is NOT a Russian Disinformation campaign and that they are in possession of the material and are conducting a further investigation.”
This could be the first time for some Americans to learn about the extent of the Biden International Crime Family headed by Basement Joe.
The election of 2020 will change America. Regardless of who wins the election, or should we say who is declared the winner, our nation will never be the same. What we know is, if the election is indeed close, the odds go to the Democrats because they have proven time after time they are not above using election fraud to swing the results. We have seen this done many times but the most notable was the presidential election of 1960 when Mayor Daily of Chicago rallied the people in the cemeteries who had been dead for years, to move Illinois into the Kennedy camp. More recently we saw how the Democrats found just enough ballots to swing several house elections into the Democrat camp in California in 2018.
If indeed, one way or the other, the Democrats are declared the winner of the presidency, the senate, and the house, the fundamental transformation that was begun over a century ago and was moved to almost full completion under Comrade Obama, will be totally completed. What this means is that our country will become a true collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive – all virtually the same) nation. In a collectivist nation all citizens are required to give full and total allegiance to the state.
The state will make all decisions for everybody. Total conformity will be required. Rights and liberties will be rationed and granted to only those who abide by the dictates of the state. We have already been promised that any who have or continue to oppose the repressive government, will be eradicated. Speech, assembly, and redress will be controlled so only what honors the state will be allowed. Biblical Christianity will be deemed to be anti-state, which it would be, and Bible believing Christians will be labeled as enemies of the state.
So long as the citizen obeys the dictates of the state, subjugates their dreams, desires, and ambitions, to what is in the best interest of the collective, they will be declared to be good and honorable people. If an individual expresses in any way contradictions to the demands of the state, they will be eliminated. Free speech, free thought, and free expression of any kind will not be tolerated. Yes, the Untied States will become a controlled society as were the members of the Soviet bloc and as is China today.
If enough people who love and cherish freedom go to the polls and save the presidency, flip the house, and retain the senate, the United States will continue to drain the swamp and reverse the Communist transformation movement that is the Democrat Party of today. The next couple of years will, however, be tumultuous. The evil that is collectivism, knows only one rule, and that rule is that the ends justify the means. We will see upheaval in the streets. The good news is that those favoring freedom will strengthen law enforcement and take the power from the thugs.
We will also see a total revamping of the executive branch. Those who were planted within the bureaucracy by the communist regime of Obama to implement the transformation will continue to be removed. Heads of the different security agencies like the FBI and CIA will have to come from outside the agency so their complicity and friendships do not shape the cleansing process. A cleansing must be done.
The House and Senate committees must conduct complete and transparent investigations, allowing the chips fall where they might. This would include a complete investigation of the Clinton Foundation, the Biden International Crime Family, the shenanigans of the House Intelligence Committee under the leadership of Adam Schiff and so many more. It is essential that all is exposed.
We who are Freedom Loving Americans must be willing and have the fortitude to expose corruption but to not take revenge. We Freedom Loving Americans must understand what it means to have the people as the sovereign and the government as the servant. Requirements are that we embrace being self-reliant and responsible for our own actions and that we set the type of example that others will want this as well. We must endure the pain that will come as we once again restore what have become institutions of indoctrination to institutions of education. We must recognize what it means to be sure all people are endowed by the Creator with life, liberty, and property. We must restore our nation to being a Republic while understanding the danger of democracy.
We must also recognize that freedom is difficult and requires much work. And we must understand that those who despise freedom will never cease to seek and end to freedom, so we must become fervent in our dedication to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.” We must instill that same dedication in the hearts of our children and grandchildren.
To make and keep America free requires constant work. Freedom is worth the effort and the cost.
I remember several years ago as I drove throughout California and listened to talk radio, the term Christian began to change. Initially it was Christian, then it became Right Wing Christian, and then it became Radical Right-Wing Christian. A dictionary definition of Christian is vaguely defined by using Christian to define it as in, of or relating to Christianity. I would assume that from a secular standpoint Christian means anything you want it to mean.
Chris Cuomo gave us a very good understanding as to how the secularist defines Christian while interviewing Sen. Mazie Hirono, Cuomo expressed concern that Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s faith appears “more central to her value system and her behavior and thoughts than it would be for just an ordinary Catholic.”
Cuomo went on to suggest in an interview with former 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg that people’s faith “doesn’t matter,” but their policy positions affected by it do. What on earth does this mean?
“It doesn’t matter if you have faith; it matters about your positions. Fine, you’re a Christian. I’m a Christian,” Cuomo said to Buttigieg, going on to smear the “devout organization” People of Praise. “This is more than just every Sunday. This is more than just a moral backstop in [Barrett’s] life. This is a fundamentalist approach to her faith.”
This is why many today refer to Biblical Christians as Radical Right-Wing Christians. A Christian is an individual who has recognized he is a sinner, has asked God for forgiveness and has confessed with his mouth and believes in his heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and salvation and redemption only come by Grace, or through the blood of Christ that was shed on the cross. Being good and doing good works, or attending church on Sunday’s does not bring you salvation and redemption according to the Bible, which a Christian understands is the Word of God.
A Christian cannot live their lives and not have their faith in Christ be the essence of their existence. This is what a Christian will do and that is to seek the will of God in everything they do, so yes their faith does dictate their values and their principles and yes, their Christian faith does leave the church with them on Sunday and is who they should strive to be all week long.
When Christ was asked what the greatest commandment is, he said that it is to love the Lord your God with all of your heart and all of your soul, that would be your total person. This means you follow the greatest commandment 24/7 every week, every month, and every year. To ask, or demand, that anybody live their Christian faith only on Sunday is to ask a Christian to deny God, and that a Christian will not do.
The term Christian has become perverted, and we are told, to be used only in a politically correct manner. This is why Cuomo would say that people should not allow their faith to have an impact on their principles. This is why Cuomo would say that faith should be left in the church on Sunday morning and not be taken into the secular world from Sunday afternoon to the next Sunday morning. It is because the secular Christian believes the Biblical Christian faith is evil and perverted, and that the United States, and the world's problems are caused by them. Sin and wickedness is every place we look including the halls of governments, schools, society, and in many churches because secularism has become the national religion.
The United States of America is not the country it was intended to be. Yes, we have the biggest economy and best military in the world. Yes, people throughout the world still want to come to the United States because of opportunity. Yes, it is always great to come through customs when returning home from traveling abroad. And yet, the fundamental principles that made the United States are despised by so many who are citizens of this country. Those who despise are telling us that the very things that have made us what we are must be transformed.
This transformation movement has been present for over a century. It did not happen by accident but has been a concerted and definite movement. Anybody who paid any attention, was well aware of the movement. Yes, that means that Freedom Loving Americans were aware of the effort to take away their beloved freedoms and liberties, but did not directly acknowledge or confront it. There are lots of reasons, but all of the reasons are nothing but excuses.
All of this has brought us to the year 2020, about 230 years from the ratifying of our Constitution that was written and ratified to protect the people from the tyranny of government, the exact happening that is very close to eliminating all that we Freedom Loving Americans hold dear. This has occurred mostly, because we Freedom Loving Americans were to busy enjoying the freedom and liberty we were given to take the time, make the effort, or to sacrifice what we must in order to keep and enhance freedom and liberty. All to often we went along to get along and nominated as our candidate people like McCain and Romney who are and were Globalists and supported the very policies we knew would continue to erode freedom and liberty.
We have arrived at the point we are today were a non-politician has exposed the evil that we have tried to ignore as it grew just like any cancer grows unless it is eradicated. When evil is exposed, when all that is dark is exposed to light, it reacts violently and irrationally. This is what we are witnessing, but the reality of the evil is so evident that it cannot be rationalized and must be addressed.
We have witnessed the violence that accompanies all transfers from freedom to enslavement. We have witnessed the lies and irrational attacks that accompanies all transfers from freedom to enslavement. We have and are about to witness the immorality and criminality that accompanies all transfers from freedom to enslavement.
We are facing three possible scenarios; one that is hopeful, and two that make our plight even more desperate. The two bad outcomes would be that the evil movement that is today encased in the Democrat party and what we call the left, would be where the evil that is the left takes control of the White House and both houses of Congress or where the evil that is the left takes control of two of the three. Under either of these scenarios the move to communism or tyranny and surrendering our sovereignty to a world power would be greatly enhanced if not totally accomplished. The result of this would be a total elimination of our Natural Rights and Liberties with a government dictating our lives and our thoughts for what they would call the greater good as has always been done when freedom is transformed to tyranny.
The other scenario that gives all Freedom Loving Americans hope would be that President Trump would win the election, the house would be taken, and the senate would emerge with a majority of Freedom Loving Americans. This would only win a battle and would not win the war. This happening would enable those who cherish freedom and liberty to continue to drain the evil that has become the swamp, it would enable those who cherish freedom and liberty to eliminate Teachers Unions that are now controlled by communists whose goal is to indoctrinate, it would enable our economy to flourish and help even more people escape poverty and the enslavement of government, and it would enable those of us who cherish freedom and liberty to become dedicated to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.”
We who cherish freedom and liberty, must always remember that there will always be a faction that aspires to control the lives and thoughts of others. When we realize and understand this truth, we will know that the war is never really won but we can greatly enhance the belief in true American principles, those principles upon which our nation was founded; our right and liberties come from God and not government, and we are a Republic and not a democracy.
Samuel Adams stated, “All might be free if they valued freedom and valued it as they should.” This is what “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” is all about, helping people value freedom and value it as they should.
The Democrat party and deep state are at a breaking point. It is hard to identify one without mentioning the other. As do all collectivist movements, the Democrat party has turned from implementing their agenda through the elected aspects of government and has relied on the UN-elected aspects, namely the bureaucracy and the judiciary. Collectivists understand the more they are able to implement their communist agenda with the government regulating the rights and liberties of the populace, the less popular they become. This is happening in the United States today.
We have seen this on full display the last several weeks. The Democrats are frightened that Amy Coney Barrett will be confirmed to the Supreme Court. She has shown over the years that she strongly opposes the judiciary branch continuing its practice of implementing policy as opposed to applying the Constitution and the law. The left has become so used to the courts making law they have forgotten how to go about implementing their policies through the process outlined in the Constitution.
The Democrats have also become used to having the bureaucrats implement their programs through rules and regulations, they have assumed they do not have any need to go before the voters. The result of creating what is called the deep state, is that long time politicians, like Joe Biden and the Clintons, have been able to use their positions to become very wealthy and never have to be concerned with being honestly investigated. And then Donald Trump was elected.
During the first term of the Trump administration, it has become clear that the deep state runs from the upper echelons of the different agencies and departments to the lowest levels. All follow the sacred code of the mob and protect each other.
During the second term of the Trump administration, the Trump appointments will have learned how better to deal with the planted people of the deep state. This is already happening as we learned that Bruce Ohr resigned from the DOJ when he learned that a decision was reached about him. Other evidence has been revealed that clearly implicates other high officials.
Finally, the truth about the Biden crime family is now coming to light and we have word that Hillary’s emails will soon start to be released.
We have been led to believe that in the Trump second term we will have different heads of such departments as the CIA and the FBI that will come from the outside, or people who have never worked for these agencies. The practice of looking within the agencies to head them will no longer be practiced, but strong independent people with no allegiance to anybody but the American people will be appointed. The crimes and evil that have existed for so many years will be exposed. This will expose the evil that has become the Democrat Party in its constant quest to transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state using any means necessary to accomplish the desired end.
We can only say, let the chips fall where they may fall. We heard from the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee all week that nobody is above the law. We will learn if that was just rhetoric or if they hold that as a core belief. We will learn if the Democrat party can continue as the party whose only goal is to transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state or if a new party who values freedom and liberty will emerge.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. Justices are appointed for live and surrender their position if the resign, they are impeached and removed, or if they die. They are Justices of the Supreme Court but are not given seats nor are there certain number of places reserved for Justices perceived to be of a certain political persuasion.
We are being led to believe that when Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, the seat was hers and the new justice nominated and confirmed must be a clone of hers. We are being led to belief that because she was perceived to be of a certain political persuasion, the nominee and confirmed justice must be the same. Nothing good be further from the truth.
The President has no limitations on whom they will nominate nor does the Senate have any limitations on whom they will confirm. The seat is always the people’s seat. The reference to this as the seat of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s is a concerted effort to attempt to mislead the American people. The reference that this position should be filled by another perceived to be of the same political persuasion is also an attempt to mislead the American people.
The seat is the seat of the American people. The political persuasion of a nominee ideally should be of no consequence. The intent, and properly so, is that all justices will never allow political persuasion to influence their rulings but will only rely on the Constitution and the law as written. If a judge is influenced by their political persuasion, or reads into the Constitution or law that is not there, is in fact acting beyond the scope of their authority. The role of a justice is simply to render an opinion and never to make policy or engage in politics.
I hope everybody has made it a point to watch the confirmation proceedings. This has been a great lesson on our Constitution and the roles of the different branches of government. The nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, is not only brilliant, but her ability to express in terms easily understood, exhibit why she was such an outstanding professor.
What Judge Barrett has made clear is that she views the role of the court as the role that the court was intended to perform. Judge Barrett has consistently stated that the role of policy making lies with the elected branches of government, the legislative branch, and the executive branch. She has made clear that the role of the judicial branch is strictly reactive and is not to make policy.
What also is clear is that the Democrats want the role of the court to change. The Democrats now oppose the court simply being an impartial referee, but they want the court to become a major participant in the game. This is not the intended role for the court and the more the court assumes the role advocated by the Democrats, the less power or authority the people have.
The Democrats have concentrated on three policies and the religion of the Judge. The three policies are abortion, gay marriage, and health care. Abortion and gay marriage are not the constitutional law of the land. Both of these policies are considered to be the law, but they are opinions of the court. This is how the Democrats wish to make policy as opposed to play their proper role of voting on issues to become law.
The health issue falls along the same line. The court, namely Chief Justice Roberts, played not only the role of judge, but also assumed the role of God. The constitutionality of the ACA hinged on whether or not penalty meant penalty or tax. The law clearly stated penalty. The proponents clearly stated penalty. If it were penalty, the law would have to be declared not to be constitutional. If it were a tax, it could be construed to be constitutional. Judge Roberts unilaterally decided that in fact the writers of the law meant tax because he could play the role of God and knew what was really intended.
The question of religion was a major topic. At issue is what does “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” mean. The answer is quite simple. It means that, unlike Great Britain who had the Anglican Church as its established religion, our government could not have an established religion. Many of the colonies had established religions. In addition, the government could not restrict individuals from practicing the religion of their choice.
The courts have violated this First Amendment. They have established the religion of secularism as our national religion by limiting the free exercise of individuals to practice their religion. The courts have ruled that if the free exercise of Christianity or the Jewish religion in any way offends the secularist, the rights of the secularist will always prevail.
Yes, we have had a lesson in civics. This hearing should have been required for all middle school, high school, and college level students. I would also strongly recommend it to all Americans, especially attorneys and judges.
Unfortunately, we learned much from the hearing on Monday. Maybe I should correct that statement and say that much was reinforced from what we already knew. The Democrat party holds allegiance to their party or their collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, all virtually the same) ideals. George Washington warned us about the danger of political parties when he said he feared that there would be a time when people placed allegiance to their party above allegiance to their country. This was on full display at the hearing.
The Democrat party clearly place their dedication to collectivism above the letter and spirit of the Constitution. In fact, they twist and mislead the public about clearly stated procedures such as the appointment of a Supreme Court justice. What was put on full display was that the Democrat party, having been captured by the collectivist movement, has as their goal to destroy the very structure of our unique system of government. Our system of government was established to protect liberty through the checks and balances of our three branches of government. The goal of the Democrats is to place all power in the judicial branch which would negate the legislative role of the Congress and negate the enforcement role of the Executive.
We also had reinforced that the Democrat party has as its goal to destroy liberty and freedom in the interest of equality. Our nation was founded on the principle that all are created equal, that is there is no ruling class or royalty in the United States, but all have the liberty and freedom to pursue their own happiness. It is this ideal that enhances the quality of life and liberty and freedom for all. It is the argument for what is termed social justice, that is a euphemism for equal outcome which is a standard for collectivism, that is a requirement now imposed as a standard for all justices that was on full display.
We also have learned from the past, but had reinforced, that the standard of the collectivist, “the ends justify the means,” was on full display and will be throughout the hearings. Any means necessary to destroy the character and integrity of the nominee was again on display, not to the extent yet that it was in the Kavanaugh hearing, but the Barrett hearing just started. The saddest thing is that these collectivists have absolutely no shame in their rude and disgraceful behavior. Just when civilized people believe the Democrats – collectivists- could not become any more rude or disgraceful, they show their behavior has no limits as to how low it can go.
The Democrats – collectivists – have told us they will do what ever they have to do to destroy our nation built on freedom and liberty, with three branches of government, and replace it with a Marxist totalitarian system. They have also told us that when they gain control, we who have opposed their evil ideal of collectivism, will be eliminated. This is exactly what every collectivist movement has done when it accumulated the power to do so. It is critical for the future of freedom and liberty that Judge Barrett be confirmed, that President Trump is again elected, and that the House and Senate be returned with a substantial majority of Freedom Loving Americans.
What we know is the Democrats, since at least Woodrow Wilson have shown their hate and disdain for our constitution. It has been called outdated, a living document that can mean what they want it to mean, and that it was written by a bunch of white supremacist slaveowners.
From the document, Communists Goals for Taking over America, that was entered into the United States Congressional Record on January 10, 1963 we read #29 and #30:
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
And this is exactly what the Democrat party has been done as it fell under this same document:
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
We are seeing the stark results of the above daily, but clearly illuminated in the time since Amy Coney Barrett has been nominated by President Trump to become a justice on the United States Supreme Court. The United States Constitution outlines the procedure for a new justice to be confirmed, the President shall nominate, and the justice shall be confirmed with the advice and consent of the Senate. There are no other restrictions or qualifications. Nevertheless, a candidate of a major political party, yes the one that was captured by the Communists, stated this:
"The only court packing going on right now is going on with Republicans packing the court right now. It's not constitutional what they're doing. We need to focus on what's happening right now. The fact is the only packing going on is this court being packed by the Republicans after voting has already begun. I'm going to stay focused on it, so we don’t take our eyes off the ball here."
What the Republicans are doing is clearly constitutional. Biden disagrees with what the Republicans are doing, but that does not make it “not constitutional.” What it in fact does is show that Biden has either never studied and or read the Constitution, disagrees with the Constitution, does not understand the Constitution, or all of the above.
We will also come to learn over the next several days that the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee fall into the same category as does Biden. These members of the party that has been captured by the Communists, will attempt to keep the nominee from being confirmed because of her religious beliefs. This is clearly against the United States Constitution.
The No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution is a clause within Article VI, Clause 3: "The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."
This party that has been captured by the Communists will many times refer to the Constitution, despite not knowing what it says, understanding what it says, believing what it says, or adhering to what it says. That fact is on full display and will be displayed again during the hearings this week. Because of this fact, it is critical that anybody who would claim to be an American, understand and adhere to this brilliantly written document whose goal was to limit the power of government and protect the rights of the people.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
