The Biden administration is launching a new “door-to-door” effort to vaccinate Americans after falling short of its Fourth of July goal of having 70 percent of the adult population with at least one shot of the coronavirus vaccine.
Amid the administration’s ongoing concerns of a surge of the more contagious Delta variant of the virus, President Biden pitched his plan to boost the vaccinated population during remarks he made on Tuesday.
“Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood and often times door-to-door- literally knocking on doors, to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” Biden said.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also referred to the “door-to-door” effort while listing the five objectives of Biden’s COVID response earlier in the day at Tuesday’s briefing, citing “targeted community door-to-door outreach” to “get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring that they have the information they need on how both safe and accessible the vaccine is.”
Critics were quick to slam the new initiative on social media, including several GOP lawmakers.
“How about don’t knock on my door. You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?” Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, reacted to the president.
“The government now wants to go door-to-door to convince you to get an ‘optional’ vaccine,” Rep. Lauren Bobert, R-Colo., warned.
“Hell no,” Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell exclaimed.
“Vaccine education and conversation should be between a doctor and patient, not by a grassroot government door knocker,” physician and Fox News contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier wrote.
“A lot of people have big government antibodies. Don’t knock on those doors,” Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., wrote.
“It’s NONE of the governments business knowing who has or hasn’t been vaccinated,” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Az., similarly expressed.
“Whoever suggested that the best way to reach remaining vaccine skeptics was to talk about going door to door should be fired immediately. It’s the Beto O’Rourke of vaccine outreach,” GOP strategist Matt Whitlock knocked the Biden administration.
“How will the government know who is vaccinated or not for this kind of targeting?” Daily Wire senior editor Ashe Short asked.
And, therein lies the problem.
Not only are they attempting to take away Americans’ FREEDOM OF CHOICE, things could get even uglier than that.
What if the Biden Administration and their handlers decided to use the information to ostracize and “control” those Americans who have chosen not to take any of the COVID-19 Vaccine Shots?
Something very similar has been done before.
German officials identified Jews residing in Germany through the normal records created by a modern state. They used census records, tax returns, synagogue membership lists, parish records (for converted Jews), routine but mandatory police registration forms, the questioning of relatives, and from information provided by neighbors and municipal officials.
In territory occupied by Nazi Germany or its Axis partners, Jews were identified largely through Jewish community membership lists, individual identity papers, captured census documents and police records, and local intelligence networks. Germany’s racial laws identified a “Jew” as anyone with three or more Jewish grandparents, regardless of their religious identity or practice. Conversions to Christianity were pronounced illegitimate going back two generations, formalizing and instituting Nazi racial theories.
Now, I not saying that this will be another Holocaust. God forbid.
On a different website, you will find these words…
Where is this art of ruling, to say nothing of the art of leadership? It is only the unscrupulousness for robbery. And when this same man then says: “We have a fine instinct for idealism and material values.” Yes indeed they have. They have destroyed idealism everywhere, and they have grabbed and taken possession of material worth and always grabbed and taken possession of it, too, by brutal force only. For in 300 years that nation has oppressed and yoked and subjected nation after nation, people after people, race after race.
No, boys and girls, the following quote did not come from the Antifa Group Refuse Fascism’s website, although it certainly reads like something they would write.
This quote comes from the Jewish Virtual Library. It is taken from a speech, delivered in 1942, given on the 19th Anniversary of the “Beer Hall Putsch”, by German Chancellor Adolph Hitler.
The Beer Hall Putsch was an incident that took place on November 8, 1923, when Nazi troops under the direction of Hermann Goering surrounded the a beer hall in Munich, Germany. At 8:30 p.m., Hitler and his storm troopers burst into the beer hall causing instant panic. Hitler announced to the crowd that the Revolution had begun, and went to the back room of the hall to try to persuade the local officials to capitulate to him. They wouldn’t. Hitler’s attempt to seize power that night failed. But, thanks to word of mouth, and Hitler’s use of propaganda, a seed was planted, that would eventually lead to World War II.
By now, you are probably asking:
Okay. So what does one thing have to do the other?
Hitler eventually rose to power by preying upon the economic despair, hopelessness, and avarice of the German people, whose country was savaged by the Great Depression of 1929.
Hitler formed a political party, naming it The National Socialist Party, which led to he and his thugs being called “Nazis”.
The era became known as the “Rise of Fascism”.
The Biden Administration and his fellow members of the Democrat Elite, including the Blue State Governors, used the COVID-19 Pandemic to take away Americans’ Freedoms. And, these now “oligarchs” have loved their new Unconstitutional Power so much, that they do want to keep it, even though the science shows that it is going away.
These political actions, including the identification of those who have refused to take the COVID-19 Vaccine, is a much an act of fascism as identifying and ostracizing human beings by race or religion,
My question is: Will the Biden Administration identify the “Unvaccinated” by a circle with an empty hypodermic needle in it with a line through it?
Or. will they make Unvaccinated Americans wear that same marker as a yellow badge?

FoxNews.com reports that
Senate Republicans Tuesday blocked sweeping legislation on election and campaign finance reforms that Democrats said is crucial to ensuring voting rights and saving democracy but the GOP blasted as a partisan power grab.
The “For the People Act” needed 60 votes to clear a procedural vote in the Senate Tuesday, but Republicans filibustered and killed the legislation from advancing to debate. No Republicans joined with the 50 Democrats on the motion to proceed.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Republicans won’t stand for Democrats’ attempt to impose new voting standards on states that would “rig” elections in their favor. He called the substance of the nearly 900-page bill “rotten” to its core.
Republicans took issue with imposing federal standards on state elections that they said would weaken state ID requirements. They also oppose starting a new public financing system for congressional elections and politicizing the Federal Elections Commission that enforces campaign finance laws.
Even GOP moderate Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said she couldn’t support the “partisan federal takeover of the election system.” In a floor speech, she said she’d back elements of the bill and will co-sponsor the separate John Lewis Voting Rights Act, but can’t back Democrats’ “one-size-fits-all” reforms.
Democrats, with the White House on their side, framed the legislation as an urgent priority to save democracy in the face of GOP efforts in state legislatures around the country to pass “voter suppression laws” in the wake of former President Trump’s 2020 election loss and unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud.
“Democracy is in peril, here, in America,” President Biden’s White House said in a statement Tuesday supporting the bill. “The right to vote – a sacred right in this country – is under assault with an intensity and an aggressiveness we have not seen in a long time.”
Voting rights have been such a concern for the White House that Vice President Kamala Harris presided over the debate on the Senate floor Tuesday evening and announced the failed 50-50 vote. Afterward, she said the White House is committed to ensuring access to the polls. “The fight is not over,” she told reporters at the Capitol.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., accused the GOP of being “afraid” to debate the merits of voting rights because they’d be forced to defend their efforts to disenfranchise voters.
“I want to be clear about what just happened on the Senate floor,” Schumer said immediately following the vote. “Every single Senate Republican just voted against starting debate … on legislation to protect Americans’ voting rights.”
He added: “This vote, I’m ashamed to say, is further evidence that voter suppression has become part of the official platform of the Republican Party.”
The “For the People Act” was numbered H.R. 1 and S.1 in the House and Senate to signify it was the top priority of Democratic leadership. The bill already passed the House with no GOP support.
The voting rights legislation, if enacted, would take aim at big-dollar donors and dark money in politics by requiring additional disclosure of campaign donors and disclaimers on political advertising. Presidential candidates would also be required to release their tax returns.
It would set up a new 6-1 public matching financing system for congressional elections to encourage more grassroots donations and require states to adopt independent redistricting commissions to prevent partisan gerrymandering.
And the legislation would set basic standards for states to run elections, such as mandating at least 15 days of early voting, setting up automatic voter registration, and permitting the use of student IDs or sworn written statements in states that have voter identification requirements.
While all 50 Democrats were united in moving to debate the bill, with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., striking a last-minute deal with Schumer, Democrats are deeply divided on what to do next.
A top Democratic political adviser criticized his own party for wasting time on the S.1 legislation that won’t pass. Dmitri Mehlhorn, a key confidant to Democratic funder Reid Hoffman, argued the legislative push was setting the party up for failure and “dragging me and my country off a cliff,” according to a report in POLITICO.
Progressives are demanding that Senate Democrats get rid of the legislative filibuster so they can pass the sweeping election reforms, D.C. statehood bill, gun control and police reform bills without any GOP support. But Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema have doubled down on their opposition to eliminating the filibuster, meaning any pathway forward on voting reforms would need GOP support.
The Democrats overplayed their hand.
Lost in their arrogant euphoria over the rigged results of the 2020 Presidential Election and their gains in Congress, they believed that they could do anything…including passing a bill into law which would ensure that they remained in power in Washington forever.
The Democrats truly believe that, like all of the other Marxists who were determined to “radically change” the government of their country and succeeded, that they will be successful, too.
There is a very important roadblock standing between the Democrats and their quest for “Radical Change”.
The difference between, say, a country like Venezuela, which was once a beautiful capitalist nation, and the United States of America, is the System of Checks and Balances which our Founding Fathers, in their brilliance, put into place to prevent wannabe tyrants, such as the Far Left Democrat Elite, from turning our Constitutional Republic into something that it was never meant to be.
That is not to say that the Democrats will not keep trying to change our Republic into a “Democratic Socialist” (i.e., MARXIST) country.
However, they will find it much harder to do thanks to the precious document that is the United States Constitution.
Thanks to that document, the power of this great nation does not reside in the Washington, D.C, Beltway, the Northeast Municipalities, or the West Coast.
America’s power is equally shared by its citizens in every state in the union.
EVERYBODY’S vote counts.
Everybody who is a citizen of the United States of America, that is.
The Democrats tried to cheat their way around that fact.
That is why they are so feverishly attempting to stop the 2020 Presidential Election Audits which are springing up, starting with Arizona.
If there was nothing to hide, why would they care is a state audited their votes which were counted in the 2020 Presidential Election?
When it all comes down to what Americans are watching transpire, these same political shenanigans have occurred whenever Marxists attempt to take over a Sovereign Nation’s sitting government.
The biggest problem that these Marxists who are calling themselves Democrats face in keeping them from succeeding with their mission of “radical change” is the fact that that there are more Patriotic Americans than there are “Useful Idiots”.

FoxNews.com reports that
President Biden on Thursday, in rolling out a set of executive orders on gun control, said “no amendment is absolute,” while maintaining that “nothing” he is recommending “impinges” on the Second Amendment.
“Today we’re taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis, but what is actually a public health crisis,” Biden said from the White House Thursday.
“Nothing, nothing I am about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” the president said, calling arguments suggesting that those constitutional rights are at stake “phony.”
“No amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” he said. “You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater — recall a freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons.”
He added: “So the idea is just bizarre, to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution.”
The president went on to call gun violence in the United States “an epidemic.”
“Let me say it again, gun violence in this country is an epidemic,” Biden said. “And it’s an international embarrassment.”
Biden announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control Thursday.
Biden is asking that the Justice Department, within a month, propose a rule to stop “ghost guns,” which are “kits” people can buy legally then fully assemble to create a functioning firearm that does not have a serial number.
Biden is also asking the DOJ within 60 days to propose a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate; proposing action on “community violence intervention”; asking the DOJ to publish suggestions for “red flag” legislation; and having his administration issue a report on gun trafficking.
Biden also formally announced David Chipman as the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
A senior administration official Wednesday said that Chipman will respect the Second Amendment while he enforces gun laws.
The Biden administration is also expected to throw its weight behind gun control proposals in Congress.
Here is how our Founding Fathers would have responded to the Dummy From Delaware, Joe Biden…
[T]he said Constitution [should] be never construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration, “Father of the American Revolution”
The right . . . of bearing arms . . . is declared to be inherent in the people. Fisher Ames, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress
[T]he advantage of being armed [is an advantage which] the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . . [I]n the several kingdoms of Europe . . . the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. James Madison, U.S. President, Signer of the Constitution, a Framer of the Second Amendment in the first congress
[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. Richard Henry Lee, Signer of the Declaration, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress
Democrats like Biden believe that the Constitution is a “fluid” document, subject to change to fit the political ideology of those who happen to be the majority party, presiding over the Executive and Legislative Branches of our Federal Government at the time.
That is where they are wrong…and they know it…but, they do not care, as evidenced by the bullying and didactic tone which Biden took during his Royal Proclamation yesterday.
The Constitution was written by brilliant men who foresaw the possibility of a minority of tyrants attempting to take over and change our Constitutional Republic into a tyrannical form of government, such as they left behind in Europe.
And, that, boys and girls, after hearing President Joe Biden threaten the Second Amendment, appears to be exactly what the Democrats want for the future of our Sovereign Nation and our children and grandchildren.
By proclaiming, like a monarch, that “no amendment is absolute”, Biden has warned us that changing the Second Amendment of OUR Constitution, a part of OUR Bill of Rights, is a very real possibility, if he can get the “Fools on the Hill”, otherwise known as Congress, to go along with it.
And, if that happens, what is to stop them from “radically changing” the First Amendment, as well?
And, God forbid, if all of that happens, our Constitutional Republic will no longer exist and America will be just another failed Democratic Socialist Third World Barrio, instead of “The Shining City Up On A Hill”.
It is time to “put on the whole Armor of God”, to pray, and to call our Representatives in Washington and tell them that We The People will not stand for this…and if they want to keep their jobs they had better start fighting against this “Russian Revolution II” and the unwanted revision of OUR Constitution.
Or they are going to be out of a job.
God protect us.

I began writing my daily articles in April of 2010.
Today, almost 10 years later, the struggle to prevent Liberals from rewriting our nation’s history continues.
As does the fight to keep the greed and avarice of those promoting the installment of Marxist Theory in our political, medical, and religious institutions from consuming our nation in a fire of self-destruction, as it has those before us.
Friends have asked me if I believe that Christ would be in favor of the “Social Justice” movement that has infiltrated some churches in America, replacing Christian Doctrine with a Modern Liberal Political Agenda.
In order for you to understand how I and the overwhelming majority of Americans living here in the Heartland feel about that question, I believe you first need a working knowledge as to whom Jesus was.
As some of you know, I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. The following piece was written in 1912 by the editor of the Commercial Appeal in Memphis, Tennessee, C.P.J. Mooney. Since then, it has remained so popular, that the newspaper has published it on their Op Ed page every year at Christmas.
JESUS, THE PERFECT MAN
There is no other character in history like that of Jesus.
As a preacher, as a doer of things, and as a philosopher, no man ever had the sweep and the vision of Jesus.
A human analysis of the human actions of Jesus brings to view a rule of life that is amazing in its perfect detail.
The system of ethics Jesus taught during His Earthly sojourn 2,000 years ago was true then, has been true in every century since and will be true forever.
Plato was a great thinker and learned in his age, but his teachings did not stand the test of time. In big things and in little things time and human experience have shown that he erred.
Marcus Aurelius touched the reflective mind of the world, but he was as cold and austere as brown marble. …
Thomas a Kempis’ Imitation of Christ is a thing of rare beauty and sympathy, but it is, as its name indicates, only an imitation.
Sir Thomas More’s Utopia is yet a dream that cannot be realized.
Lord Bacon writing on chemistry and medicine under the glasses of the man working in a 20th century laboratory is puerile.
The world’s most learned doctors until 150 years ago gave dragon’s blood and ground tails of lizards and shells of eggs for certain ailments. The great surgeons a hundred years ago bled a man if he were wounded.
Napoleon had the world at his feet for four years, and when he died the world was going on its way as if he had never lived.
JESUS TAUGHT little as to property because He knew there were things of more importance than property. He measured property and life, the body and soul, at their exact relative value. He taught much more as to character, because character is of more importance than dollars.
Other men taught us to develop systems of government. Jesus taught so as to perfect the minds of men. Jesus looked to the soul, while other men dwelled on material things.
After the experience of 2,000 years no man can find a flaw in the governmental system outlined by Jesus.
Czar and kaiser, president and socialist, give to its complete merit their admiration.
No man today, no matter whether he follows the doctrine of Mill, Marx or George as to property, can find a false principle in Jesus’s theory of property.
In the duty of a man to his fellow, no sociologist has ever approximated the perfection of the doctrine laid down by Jesus in His Sermon on the Mount.
Not all the investigations of chemists, not all the discoveries of explorers, not all the experiences of rulers, not all the historical facts that go to make up the sum of human knowledge on this day in 1912 are in contradiction to one word uttered or one principle laid down by Jesus.
The human experiences of 2,000 years show that Jesus never made a mistake. Jesus never uttered a doctrine that was true at that time and then became obsolete.
Jesus spoke the truth, and the truth is eternal.
History has no record of any other man leading a perfect life or doing everything in logical order. Jesus is the only person whose every action and whose every utterance strike a true note in the heart and mind of every man born of woman. He never said a foolish thing, never did a foolish act and never dissembled.
No poet, no dreamer, no philosopher loved humanity with all the love that Jesus bore toward all men.
WHO, THEN, was Jesus?
He could not have been merely a man, for there never was a man who had two consecutive thoughts absolute in truthful perfection.
Jesus must have been what Christendom proclaims Him to be — a divine being — or He could not have been what He was. No mind but an infinite mind could have left behind those things which Jesus gave the world as a heritage.
No, I do not believe that Jesus would be a part of the social justice movement. His was and is a soul-saving movement. One that still brings hundreds of thousand of people to individual salvation on this terrestrial ball every day. A movement that, in fact, was embraced by the founders of this cherished land.
In a opinion piece for ChristianPost.com, Christian Talk Show Host Julie Roys gave the following Five Reasons that Socialism itself is not based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
1. Socialism is Based on a Materialistic Worldview
According to socialists like Bernie Sanders, the greatest problem in the world is the unequal distribution of wealth.
His website declares: “The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time.”
This betrays a fundamentally materialistic worldview, which is the basis of socialism.
To socialists, all that really exists is the material world.
2. Socialism Punishes Virtue
Socialists want to distribute wealth to individuals according to their need, regardless of virtue.
As Karl Marx, famously said, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”
However, whenever any institution provides aid, it runs the risk of removing God-designed rewards and consequences. It can punish those who are industrious by making them pay for those who are not. And, it can reward those who aren’t industrious by giving them the fruits of another man’s labor. This is precisely what socialism does.
Interestingly, Marx mooched off others his whole life, and failed to provide for his wife and children.
As Aristotle once noted, “Men start revolutionary changes for reasons connected with their private lives.”
The Bible teaches that aid should be tied to responsibility. First, anyone who refuses to work should be refused aid.
3. Socialism Endorses Stealing
Barack Obama once defended his socialist policies to a little girl by saying, “We’ve got to make sure that people who have more money help the people who have less money. If you had a whole pizza, and your friend had no pizza, would you give him a slice?”
That sounds pretty Christian, right? What Christian wouldn’t endorse sharing your abundance with someone who has nothing? However, Obama wasn’t endorsing people voluntarily sharing their wealth with others; he was endorsing the government forcibly taking a piece of the pie from one person and giving it to someone else. Put another way, that’s saying that if you have three cars and your neighbor has none, the government has a right to take your car and give it to your neighbor. That’s not Christian; that’s stealing!
But, socialists don’t believe in private property. And, some Christian socialists actually assert that the Bible doesn’t either. That’s preposterous.
Both the Old Testament and New Testament unequivocally affirm private property. We can’t even obey the eighth commandment to not steal, unless we accept the notion of private ownership. Nor, can we steward our money as the Bible commands if the state owns our money, not us.
4. Socialism Encourages Envy and Class Warfare
Socialists demonize the rich, blaming all of society’s problems on them.
Bernie Sanders once posted to his Facebook Page: “Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.”
Here, Sanders is mimicking Karl Marx, who viewed history as a series of class struggles between the rich and the poor — and advocated overthrowing the ruling class.
Scripture strongly warns the rich and powerful not to oppress the poor.
In fact, Proverbs 14:31 says, “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for his maker . . .”
But, Sanders — and other Leftists, including Hillary Clinton — go far beyond decrying specific acts of injustice. They basically condemn an entire class of people simply for possessing wealth. And, they encourage those who are poor to overthrow them. In fact, Clinton once said the U.S. economy required a “toppling” of the wealthiest 1%.
The rich are not causing all the problems in American society. People like Bill Gates are not acquiring wealth by stealing from the masses. They’re creating great products, which produce wealth, and actually provide jobs for many people. But, even if they were exploiting the poor, nowhere does Scripture support the have-nots demanding money from the haves. Instead, it teaches that we should not covet (Exodus 20:17) and should be content in all circumstances (Phil. 4:11-13).
5. Socialism Seeks to Destroy Marriage & Family
A little known fact about socialism is that, from its beginning, it has sought to destroy marriage and family. Grove City Professor Paul Kengor explains this in detail in his book, Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Marriage and Family. Essentially, what socialism seeks is for the state to replace the family. That way, it can indoctrinate children in its Leftist way of thinking, and remove from them any notions of God and religion.
Friedrich Engels, co-author with Marx of the “The Communist Manifesto,” once wrote that the society he envisioned would be one where “the single family ceases to be the economic unit of society. Private housekeeping is transformed into a social industry. The care and education of the children becomes a public affair.”
Similarly today, Bernie Sanders calls for a “revolution” in childcare and for the government to provide early childhood education beginning with children as young as six-weeks-old. And, he’s a proud supporter of gay marriage — what Kengor calls “communism’s Trojan Horse” to secure the final takedown of traditional marriage.
To socialists, what Bernie describes is a utopia. But, to Christians, it’s a dystopia. That’s because there’s nothing Christian about socialism — and there’s absolutely no way Jesus would ever support it.
America was not founded to be a Socialist Nation.
The following is courtesy of adherents.com:
There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. There were 48 signers of the Articles of Confederation. All 55 delegates who participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 are regarded as Founding Fathers, in fact, they are often regarded as the Founding Fathers because it is this group that actually debated, drafted and signed the U.S. Constitution, which is the basis for the country’s political and legal system. Only 39 delegates actually signed the document, however, meaning there were 16 non-signing delegates – individuals who were Constitutional Convention delegates but were not signers of the Constitution.
There were 95 Senators and Representatives in the First Federal Congress. If one combines the total number of signatures on the Declaration, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with the non-signing Constitutional Convention delegates, and then adds to that sum the number of congressmen in the First Federal Congress, one obtains a total of 238 “slots” or “positions” in these groups which one can classify as “Founding Fathers” of the United States. Because 40 individuals had multiple roles (they signed multiple documents and/or also served in the First Federal Congress), there are 204 unique individuals in this group of “Founding Fathers.” These are the people who did one or more of the following:
– signed the Declaration of Independence
– signed the Articles of Confederation
– attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
– signed the Constitution of the United States of America
– served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
– served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress
The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an “American Founding Father.” But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.
Religious Affiliation of U.S. Founding Fathers
# of Founding Fathers/% of Founding Fathers
Episcopalian/Anglican 88 54.7%
Presbyterian 30 18.6%
Congregationalist 27 16.8%
Quaker 7 4.3%
Dutch Reformed/German Reformed 6 3.7%
Lutheran 5 3.1%
Catholic 3 1.9%
Huguenot 3 1.9%
Unitarian 3 1.9%
Methodist 2 1.2%
Calvinist 1 0.6%
The Founding Fathers were, I do not doubt, aware of the following passage:
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. – 2 Corinthians 3:17
The Liberals and Atheists who reply to my blogs on Facebook and other Internet Sites insist that Crosses and other Christian symbols have no place in the Public Square. They wish for Christians to remain unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, and for Christian Americans to “compromise” our Faith…i.e., shut up about Homosexual Marriage and other sins, being used as political expediencies to further an agenda to “radically change” America into something that it was never meant to be.
Well, y’all can wish for a unicorn to magically appear in your backyard…but that ain’t gonna happen, either.
As a free nation, all you who are non-believers have every right to exercise your faith.
However, as Orthodox Rabbi Daniel Lapin of the Jewish Policy Center clearly explains:
[I] understand that I live . . . in a Christian nation, albeit one where I can follow my faith as long as it doesn’t conflict with the nation’s principles. The same option is open to all Americans and will be available only as long as this nation’s Christian roots are acknowledged and honored.
…Without a vibrant and vital Christianity, America is doomed, and without America, the west is doomed. Which is why I, an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, devoted to Jewish survival, the Torah, and Israel am so terrified of American Christianity caving in. God help Jews if America ever becomes a post-Christian society! Just think of Europe!
Is the Rabbi prophetic? I pray that he isn’t.
I have, however, noticed in the last few years, a propensity among those who have not been raised in a Christian home, to be intolerant toward those who have…as witnessed in public forms, ranging from Collegiate Classrooms to Facebook Political Pages.
Americans’ Christian Faith, of which approximately 3/4ths of us, according to Gallup, still anchor our lives around, has been the Solid Rock upon which our nation was built. To deny that, is to deny reality, to re-write history, and, to, quite frankly, endanger “the Shining City on a Hill”.
As President Ronald Reagan said,
If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
This November, Americans face a critical choice once again.
Do not be fooled.
Whether it is BIden or Sanders who is the Democratic Presidential Candidate, they are both Socialists.
Joe Biden just hides it better than Bernie Sanders does.
Pay attention to his actions, not his words.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. – Matthew 7:20
Until He Comes,
You know, JFK would be like an Alt-Right neo-Nazi fascist according to them today. And I think there’s such a great tradition of, you know, some of these people in working class America, “Don, if my grandfather knew I was voting for a Republican he’d be rolling over in his grave.” I go, “How many genders would your grandfather think there are? Talk to me about what he would think about today’s Democrat Party platform,” and that’s sort of when the light goes off. – Donald Trump, Jr., The Rush Limbaugh Program, 11/7/19
Fox News.com reports that
House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Hakeem Jeffries blasted Republicans and labeled them as a “#CoverUpCaucus” after they submitted a list of witnesses they would like to call for public testimony as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
Jeffries, D-N.Y., also questioned the validity of the witnesses in a brief but fiery tweet Sunday morning directed at his counterparts across the aisle.
“House Republican #CoverUpCaucus wants sham witnesses to testify,” Jeffries said. “My two cents? GET LOST.”
The GOP list includes Hunter Biden and his former business partner Devon Archer, former Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa, and the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky led to the impeachment inquiry.
In that call, Trump urged Zelensky to launch an investigation into the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine — specifically, why former Vice President Joe Biden pressured former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire a prosecutor who was investigating a Ukrainian energy firm where his son Hunter held a lucrative role on the board.
Democrats have claimed the call was part of an attempted quid pro quo in exchange for withheld U.S. military aid and a White House meeting between Zelensky and Trump. Trump has denied the claim, saying the call was “perfect.”
Republicans have called for the whistleblower to come forward to answer questions about their complaint, which came from second-hand knowledge of the phone call.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who runs the inquiry, was quick to reject the GOP’s request to have the whistleblower come forward to testify, citing whistleblower protection laws and stating that other witnesses’ testimony has already been more substantive than what was stated in the complaint.
“The committee … will not facilitate efforts by President Trump and his allies in Congress to threaten, intimidate and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm,” Schiff said in a letter to Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif. ” … The whistleblower has a right under laws championed by this committee to remain anonymous and to be protected from harm.”
The impeachment inquiry, moreover, has gathered an ever-growing body of evidence — from witnesses and documents, including the president’s own words in his July 25 call record — that not only confirms, but far exceeds the initial information in the whistleblower’s complaint … ” Schiff concluded his letter.
President Trump suggested Saturday that Republicans call former Vice President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Schiff himself as witnesses.
Let’s stop this Soviet-style sham right now.
As the little old lady said in the commercial a while back,
That’s not how it works! That’s not how any of this works!
According to ConstitutionCenter.org,
The second part of the House impeachment process usually resides with the Judiciary Committee, which can empower subcommittees, hold public hearings, subpoena persons and records, and incur expenses as part of the investigation. At the investigation’s end, the committee would decide if the evidence merits moving forward with the drafting of impeachment articles for the full House to consider.
First, Pelosi called for a Formal Impeachment Inquiry vote after they had already started their Inquisition…err…investigation.
Then, they intentionally circumvented established procedure to hold closed door meetings chaired by Shifty Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who was also a force behind the failed Special Counsel Investigation.
He and his fellow House Democrats participating in this seditious sideshow also came up with arbitrary “rules designed to keep the Republicans from being able to freely participate in the questioning of the Democrats’ prejudicial witnesses.
Plus, Adam Schiff has denied the Republicans’ witness request list.
With Schiff having already coached CIA official Eric Ciaramella, who is being referred to in the MSM as the “anonymous whistleblower”, even though every one knows that he is a part of the Depp State Coup, Schiff’s credibility is nonexistent, having left Washington a long time ago.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said this weekend on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that
“I consider any impeachment in the House that doesn’t allow us to know who the whistleblower is to be invalid because without the whistleblower complaint we wouldn’t be talking about any of this.”
In other words, all the House Dems are doing is attempting to damage President Trump with another lame strategy after their first one, the “Russian Collusion Delusion” failed miserably.
Then, when this is voted down in the Senate, if Pelosi and company ever let their “Impeachment Inquiry” get out of a never-ending Soviet-style Tribunal in the House Intelligence Committee with Commissar Schiff, the Democrats will try something else to sabotage both President Trump and all of us between the coasts who voted him into office.
That is why, when we reelect President Trump in the 2020 Presidential Election, we need to elect a Republican Majority back into the House of Representatives.
That way, Congress can actually do some work on behalf of the American people.
Because right now, the Democrats are just wasting our time…and MONEY.

FoxNews.com reports that
Fox News learned in more detail how things went down Wednesday in the House Intelligence Committee when 25-30 House Republicans barged into a closed-door deposition of Pentagon official Laura Cooper.
Sources said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., summoned House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving to deal with the deluge of members who were not members of the Intelligence, Oversight or Foreign Affairs Committees.
“It was a violation of House rules and decorum,” said one source.
Fox News is told that the members led by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., actually entered not just the non-secure anteroom and hallways of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF), but the secure room where Cooper was to be deposed.
That’s where members are not supposed to have electronic devices. Members are asked to agree to an oath that they will not do so. The facility was swept for electronic devices after member gave up their devices.
It appeared one member didn’t surrender their device, prompting a deeper scrub that took around two hours.
The standoff occurred after lawmakers held a news conference accusing Democrats of lacking transparency and specifically calling out Schiff, who is leading the impeachment investigation into President Trump.
From there, the House Republicans stormed in the room where Cooper, who has overseen Ukraine policy at the Pentagon, was set to testify.
There was never any threat of arrest, but a source said some members asked to be arrested, citing the optics of being marched out of the SCIF in handcuffs in front of throngs of reporters and news cameras. That would have surely supported a running GOP narrative that Democrats have run amok with the impeachment process.
The Republicans in the room were not rowdy, though their presence in a secure facility, in the middle of House panel business of which they are not members, still ruffled some feathers.
However, there wasn’t much security officials could do, one congressional source told Fox News.
“They’re members. They’re expected to adhere to the rules. There’s no real punishment for breaking the rules,” said the source.
Schiff decided to wait the Republicans out, knowing there was a mid-afternoon vote on the House floor. The Republicans left and the deposition finished around 3:15 p.m.
House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., sent a letter to Irving, raising “serious concerns” about the security of SCIF’s. He asked Irving to “take action with respect to the Members involved in the breach.”
The members who violated the rules of the SCIF could be referred to the House Ethics Committee, one source told Fox News.
“We made our point,” said one Republican who asked not to be identified.
I am truly glad that some of the Republicans finally grew a spine.
It only took them almost 3 years.
Where have they been all of these months while President Trump has been literally put on daily public trial by the Democrats and the MSM and found guilty of everything from bigotry, and conspiring with Vladimir Putin to using the same word that Democrats themselves used when describing the Impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
There have been a few of them, like Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, and Mark Meadows, who have spoke out in defense of the President.
Even Lindsey Graham found his long-lost Conservative Voice…after John McCain passed away.
There is nothing Constitutional, or anywhere near being ethical, for the Democrats to be holding Soviet-style secret meetings every single day on Capitol Hill, in their attempt to overthrow the will of the American People in removing President Donald J. Trump from office.
By the way, don’t believe any of the polls which show that the majority of Americans want the Dems to impeach President Trump.
I could post a poll showing that the majority of Americans polled believe that Nancy Pelosi is a space alien.
Political Polls are only as accurate as their sample ratios.
The only “poll” that was accurate in the 2016 Presidential Election was the Electoral Map showing a whole lot of red (Trump Voters) and just a little bit of blue (Clinton Voters) after the election was over.
But, I digress.
I believe that the most telling thing about the Republicans’ walking into the Democrats’ Secret Tribunal was the fact that Chairman Adam Schiff ran out the back door when those Republicans came in the front door.
Bullies always act brave…until their bluff is called.
It is time for Republicans to stand up and be counted.
They need to continue to disrupt the Democrats’ Secret Meetings until Nancy Pelosi breaks down and calls for a vote on whether or not to formally impeach the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.
Otherwise, the Democrats will keep running over the Republicans and attempting to circumvent the First Amendment Right of American Citizens to decide whom our President should be.
This is a Constitutional Republic. America is not a Socialist Country, governed in secret.
It is time for Republicans to remember who put them on Capitol Hill.

The Hill.com reports that
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) revealed in a new interview that House Democrats have discussed jailing allies of the president who do not comply with congressional subpoenas, an escalation of the House’s efforts to force White House compliance with an impeachment inquiry.
Tlaib told Deadline Detroit that such an action, known as inherent contempt, would be “uncharted territory” for Congress but added that “serious conversations” about taking the step have occurred within the Democratic caucus.
“There have been actual serious conversations about what the logistics would look like … if we did have to force someone through a court order to come before the Congressional committee,” she said. “This is pretty uncharted territory for many of us and even for Congress.”
Tlaib’s comments echoed those of Rep. John Garamendi (D-Calif.), who called for the House to do as much in a CNN interview earlier this week.
“I think it’s time to call in the sergeant-at-arms and march them off to our little jail, which we do happen to have,” Garamendi said on Wednesday.
“Let them sit there and cool off for a while,” he added.
In an inherent contempt proceeding, the House or Senate would have its sergeant-at-arms or a deputy of that person take someone into custody.
The White House has warned Congress that it will not cooperate with an impeachment probe in the Democratic-controlled House, though a State Department official defied an order to not testify this week and met with congressional investigators.
That official was the Former Ambassador to Ukraine, who is a Democrat and close friend of the Clintons.
On October 8th, President Trump’s Legal Counsel Pat A. Cipollone sent an 8-page letter to House Speak Nancy Pelosi and the Chairmen of the three House Committees who have issued subpoenas to Administration members.
In a key paragraph, Cipollone writes
Given that your inquiry lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, or even the most elementary due process protections, the Executive Branch cannot be expected to participate in it. Because participating in this inquiry under the current unconstitutional posture would inflict lasting institutional harm on the Executive Branch and lasting damage to the separation of powers, you have left the President no choice. Consistent with the duties of the President of the United States, and in particular his obligation to preserve the rights of future occupants of his office, President Trump cannot permit his Administration to participate in this partisan inquiry under these circumstances.
Stephen B. Presser, a Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law, Writes in the article “Standards for Impeachment”, found at Heritage.org that
The word “impeachment” is popularly used to indicate both the bringing of charges in the House and the Senate vote on removal from office. In the Constitution, however, the term refers only to the former. At the Convention, the delegates experimented with differing impeachment proceedings. As finally agreed, a majority vote of the House of Representatives is required to bring impeachment charges (Article I, Section 2, Clause 5), which are then tried before the Senate (Article I, Section 3, Clause 6). Two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict before an official can be removed.
In The Federalist No. 64, John Jay argued that the threat of impeachment would encourage executive officers to perform their duties with honor, and, used as a last resort, impeachment itself would be effective to remove those who betray the interests of their country. Like the limitations on the offense of treason, the Framers placed particular grounds of impeachment in the Constitution because they wished to prevent impeachment from becoming a politicized offense, as it had been in England. Nonetheless, Alexander Hamilton, in The Federalist No. 65, also warned that during impeachment proceedings, it would be difficult for Congress to act solely in the interests of the nation and resist political pressure to remove a popular official. The Framers believed that the Senate, elected by the state legislatures, would have the requisite independence needed to try impeachments. The Framers also mandated a supermajority requirement to militate against impeachments brought by the House for purely political reasons.
Boys and girls, that is exactly what we as a nation are witnessing right now.
The Democratic Party, by launching what they are euphemistically referring to as an “Impeachment Inquiry”, are attempting an end run around the United States Constitution.
These clandestine communications culminating daily in top secret closed door tribunals more closely resemble Joseph Stalin’s Great Purge from 1936-1938 in the Soviet Union when he got rid of anyone and everyone who he believe was a political dissident or simply an impediment to “The Communist Party” and his iron handed rule over the people of the Soviet Union, or proletariat than they do anything else ever seen in the history of American Politics.
By “getting rid of”, I mean Stalin either killed these “dissidents” or sent them by train to the Siberian Gulags, where they performed hard labor under horrendous living conditions until they died.
Make no mistake about it, the soul-eating hatred and absolute stark-raving madness being exhibited by the TDS-suffering Far Left House Democrats is no less horrifying and no less fascist than the actions of “Uncle Joe” Stalin or any other Marxist Leader that you can think of.
There is nothing Constitutional about what Pelosi and company are attempting to pull off here.
For them to even consider locking up Administration members without due cause is horrifying and bone-chilling, to say the least.
If they thought that they could get by with having their Deep State Minions in the Intelligence Communities grab President Trump and march him into their committee chambers to appear before them, the House Dems would do it in an instant.
Thank God that our Founders made us a Constitutional Republic with 3 Branches of government.
They only thing that is stopping them is that they know that average Americans would not stand for it.
By now, I am sure that you are asking “So, why doesn’t Pelosi just “call the vote” and get the Impeachment, which she claims now to want, started?”
With all of this mess they started, after almost 3 years of pontificating and bloviating, the Democrats still have nothing to impeach President Trump on.
And, if they try it, they will lose control of the House of Representatives and the President will be re-elected in an even bigger landslide than is already coming.
The House Dems’ Soviet Dog and Pony Show is not impressing average Americans and is digging them a political hole which eventually is going to send them the way of the Whigs.
And, it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
Until He Comes,
FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump launched a social media broadside Saturday against House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, calling it the “single greatest scam in the history of American politics.”
“How do you impeach a President who has created the greatest Economy in the history of our Country, entirely rebuilt our Military into the most powerful it has ever been, Cut Record Taxes & Regulations, fixed the VA & gotten Choice for our Vets (after 45 years), & so much more?” he asked.
The president specifically attacked the complaint by an intelligence community whistleblower, who accused Trump of “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.” Democrats, following the whistleblower’s lead, have accused Trump of threatening to withhold military aid to Ukraine in a July 25 call unless the Eastern European country’s newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and their business dealings there.
“The Whistleblower’s complaint is completely different and at odds from my actual conversation with the new President of Ukraine. The so-called ‘Whistleblower’ knew practically NOTHING in that those ridiculous charges were far more dramatic & wrong,” said Trump.
A memorandum of the Trump-Zelensky call was made public Wednesday. It shows that while Trump sought an investigation into the Biden family for corruption, the president did not explicitly leverage military aid.
Trump again defended his call on Saturday, saying: “The conversation with the new and very good Ukraine President, who told the Fake News, at the United Nations, that HE WAS NOT PRESSURED BY ME IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, should by and of itself bring an end to the new and most recent Witch Hunt. Others ended in ashes!”
While meeting with Trump on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week, Zelensky told reporters that “nobody pushed me” during the call with Trump.
Trump also attacked House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., accusing him of “fraudulently and illegally inserted his made up & twisted words into my call with the Ukrainian President to make it look like I did something very wrong. He then boldly read those words to Congress and millions of people, defaming & libeling me.”
The president then repeated his claim that Schiff “must resign from Congress!”
…On Saturday morning, Trump sent a series of tweets using all capital letters, saying: “Presidential Harassment!”, “Make America Great Again!” and “Keep America Great!”
He also called out several Democrats by name and said they were the “Do Nothing Democrat Savages.”
“Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like [Jerry] Nadler, [Adam] Schiff, AOC [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me,” Trump said. “Oh well, maybe next time!”
The initial whistleblower complaint was forwarded to Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on Aug. 26, who testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday. Maguire said the complaint alleged serious wrongdoing by the president but that it was not his role to judge whether the allegations were credible or not.
On Friday, the Democratic chairs of three House committees subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for documents related to Ukraine that they say pertain to the inquiry.
Schiff, Foreign Affairs chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.; and Oversight chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in a letter they would consider the State Department’s refusal to comply by Oct. 4 as “evidence of obstruction.”
As I have written previously, the President has done nothing wrong.
Congress has no right to those phone calls.
If Congress wants to hear some phone calls, fine.
Let’s de-classify all of President Barack Hussein Obama’s phone calls with the mad Mullahs of Iran while he was “negotiating” the failed “gentleman’s agreement” with them concerning their ongoing nuclear proliferation program.
Congress continues to politically distance themselves from average Americans.
In video posted above, President Trump says,
“The Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges, they want to take away everything,”
And, he is exactly right.
Far Left Democrats view themselves as superior to average Americans.
Back in June of this year, Washington Post national political correspondent Dave Weigel referred to President Trump’s supporters in no uncertain terms as “rubes” during an appearance on a left-wing podcast.
Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 with 46% of the vote.
Over two and one-half years into the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division is more cavernous as ever.
Those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, continue to support the man whom we elected to the most powerful office in the Free World…because he is not a politician…which makes the Far Left Democrats and the Vichy Republicans like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, hate him even more.
Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to remove President Trump from office, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.
Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…
None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, photoshopped pictures, and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook designing to somehow add credence to the out-of-control actions of the Democrats on Capitol Hill are making any difference to average Americans.
The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue through their sheer arrogance and hatred for the traditional American Way of Life, to not only distance themselves from the people whom they continue to claim that they “love”…Average Working Class Americans, but to also attempt to take their Constitutional Freedoms away.
Yet still, they expect us to believe the false allegations and unjustified push toward impeachment which they are desperately trying in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, which they are distributing through the Fake News Media and which Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and the rest of the “useful idiots”, in their shared madness, can somehow get a do-over, enabling Hillary Clinton to somehow miraculously become the President.
Americans do not care what the Far left Democratic Politicians on Capitol Hill and Main Stream Media “journalists” such as Dave Wiegel think.
To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even the Liberal Trolls who inhabit President Trump’s Twitter Account can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party and their minions in the MSM and on Social Media are no longer “evenly yoked”.
The Democrats have become the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who, as Dave Wiegel so clearly demonstrated, look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted in 2016 and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for 8 interminable years on November 8th, 2016.
The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as
the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.
Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Main Stream Media, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum?
Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate, which includes building a wall on our Southern Border, regardless what your highly inaccurate Democrat sample-heavy polls show.
And, average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom Democrats and the MSM “journalists” like Dave Wiegel continue to insult, ridicule, and threaten to disarm on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.
Because it is evident by what he has accomplished since he took office that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President.
“Rube”, my hindquarters.
KEEP AMERICA GREAT 2020
Until He Comes,
The following three rulings have been handed down since Wednesday…
A federal judge in New York on Wednesday ruled that Deutsche Bank and Capital One may provide President Trump’s financial records to House Democratic lawmakers after the administration attempted to block the move.
U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos, an Obama appointee, made the ruling in a New York courthouse Wednesday afternoon after hearing arguments from both parties in the case.
A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked Mississippi from moving ahead with a so-called “heartbeat” abortion law that bans the procedure after a cardiac activity is first detected, which occurs at around six weeks of pregnancy.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves stops the order from taking effect July 1.
“Here we go again,” Reeves wrote. “Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability.”
Reeves also struck down a 2018 Mississippi law that banned abortion at 15 weeks. The state is appealing that ruling.
A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s plan to spend billions to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border with Defense Department funds.
U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam’s ruling applies to wall construction in specific areas in El Paso, Texas and Yuma, Arizona. Trump declared a national emergency in February to redirect funding from the Department of Defense to begin construction of his long-promised border wall.
“In short, the position that when Congress declines the Executive’s request to appropriate funds, the Executive nonetheless may simply find a way to spend those funds “without Congress” does not square with fundamental separation of powers principles dating back to the earliest days of our Republic,” wrote Gilliam, who was appointed to the bench by former President Barack Obama.
All three of these federal judges have something in common: they were all three appointed to the bench by Former President Barack Hussein Obama.
For years now, Democrat Politicians and the Liberal Special Interest Groups who donate to their campaigns have used America’s Legal System to overthrow the will of the majority of Americans.
In fact, they have made an art form out of it.
However, the focus of these rulings made by Obama appointees is not about allowing two hairy-legged gents to roll around under the sheets together and label it a “marriage” in the name of “love”.
Rather, these activist judges, just as was done when Trump announced his “Travel Ban” designed to stem the flow of Radical Islamists into our Sovereign Nation, seek to “neuter” President Trump and render him and Conservative Governors, like Mississippi’s Phil Bryant powerless to accomplish the wishes of those who put them in political office.
According to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, in the following Federalist Paper, Americans have nothing to fear from the Judiciary when they act alone. It’s when they act in concert with others, such as Liberal Politicians in Congress, that Americans need to be afraid.
From The Federalist #78
Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.
This simple view of the matter suggests several important consequences. It proves incontestably, that the judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power1; that it can never attack with success either of the other two; and that all possible care is requisite to enable it to defend itself against their attacks. It equally proves, that though individual oppression may now and then proceed from the courts of justice, the general liberty of the people can never be endangered from that quarter; I mean so long as the judiciary remains truly distinct from both the legislature and the Executive. For I agree, that “there is no liberty, if the power of judging be not separated from the legislative and executive powers.”2 And it proves, in the last place, that as liberty can have nothing to fear from the judiciary alone, but would have every thing to fear from its union with either of the other departments; that as all the effects of such a union must ensue from a dependence of the former on the latter, notwithstanding a nominal and apparent separation; that as, from the natural feebleness of the judiciary, it is in continual jeopardy of being overpowered, awed, or influenced by its co-ordinate branches; and that as nothing can contribute so much to its firmness and independence as permanency in office, this quality may therefore be justly regarded as an indispensable ingredient in its constitution, and, in a great measure, as the citadel of the public justice and the public security.
Do you think that Hamilton foresaw the rise of Activist Judges, whose sole purpose, working in concert with an out-of-power Political Party, would be to sabotage a president and State Governors trying to legislate according to the wishes of the majority of American Citizens?
The great American Economist and Conservative Pundit (who just happens to be Black) Dr. Thomas Sowell, wrote the following in a paper on the subject of Judicial Activism:
The claim that judicial activism is necessary to rescue us from bondage to the past– from having the writers of the Constitution “rule us from the grave”– defies both logic and history. There is no contest between the living and the dead. The contest is between those living individuals who wish to see control of change in judicial hands and those who wish to see it in other hands. There has been no argument that either statutory or constitutional laws are not to change. The only meaningful question is: Who is to change them? The reiterated emphasis on change, like the reiterated emphasis on morality, argues what is not at issue and glides over what is crucially at issue: Why are judges the authorized instrument? The original cognitive meaning of laws– constitutional or statutory– is important, not out of deference to the dead, but because that is the agreed‑upon meaning among the living, until they choose to make an open and explicit change– not have one foisted on them by the verbal sleight-of‑hand of judges.
Existing social philosophies and political alignments cannot be presupposed in discussions of long-run questions, such as constitutional interpretation. Even within the judiciary, differences in “substantive values” have been drastic over time, and by no means negligible even at a given time. The belief that a constitutional structure can be maintained while jurists with radically different visions make “substantive choices” within it seems dangerously similar to a belief that one can slide half-way down a slippery slope. The argument for judicial activism must stand or fall in general and enduring terms, not simply on whether some current political or social creed is considered so superior to competing creeds as to justify judges’ decisions in its favor. It is ultimately not a question of the relative merits of particular political or social creeds but of the long-run consequences of opening the floodgates to the generic principle of constitutional decisions based on “substantive values.” Once you have opened the floodgates, you cannot tell the water where to go.
What must be rejected is precisely the general principle that judges’ “substantive values” should govern constitutional decisions. Nor is anything fundamentally changed by saying that judges are only agents of general moral ideas, rather than their own personal inclinations.
From the beginning of Trump’s presidency, the Democrats and their Special Interest Groups have attempted to thwart his plans to fulfill his Campaign Promises by seeking out sympathetic Liberal Activist Judges who would rule in their favor.
The Founding Fathers never meant for Americans to be ruled by the Judiciary.
That is why they created three distinct Branches of Government with their own fields of authority.
The Judicial and Legislative Branches were not created to steer the Ship of State.
The Executive Branch is responsible for the leadership of our Sovereign Nation.
Elections have consequences.
The Democrats keep on showing the American People exactly who they really are: a bunch of sore losers embracing relative morality and situational ethics.
And, it needs to end.

“People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.” – American Proverb
A few days ago, John Podesta posted the following editorial in The Washington Post…
Okay, it’s official. President Trump wants to upend 230 years of constitutional history and principle to run the U.S. justice system like a banana republic, or perhaps more aptly like what now passes for the rule of law in the country he aspires to emulate, the Russian Federation.
What the Founding Fathers built with a written Constitution and 85 Federalist Papers, the president is trying to tear down 140 or 280 characters at a time.
For months, Trump has been trying to divert attention from the walls closing in on his former campaign chairman, his former national security adviser and his own son Donald Trump Jr., who are caught up in the investigation by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Trump has practiced some of the favorite tactics of his role model Vladimir Putin, labeling any damaging revelation as “fake news” and practicing a refined form of “whataboutism.”
I have been one of the favorite targets of the latter. Whenever Trump gets close to Putin, as he did in Vietnam this weekend, and is asked about Russian efforts to help elect him and damage Hillary Clinton by, among other things, criminally hacking my personal email account, he responds by asking: What about the Clintons? What about John Podesta? The Justice Department should look into them.
But what appeared to be a typically Trumpian media damage-control strategy has taken a more lawless and sinister turn. This week, it was reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions — in an apparent effort to appease Trump — is considering appointing a special counsel to investigate Clinton’s role in approving the purchase of Uranium One, a company that owned uranium mines in the United States, by Russia’s nuclear energy agency. This matter was thoroughly and exhaustively examined by the mainstream media during the 2016 campaign, leading to the definitive conclusion that Clinton played no role.
That didn’t stop Trump from pounding his “beleaguered” attorney general, as recently as Nov. 3, to demand that the Justice Department open a criminal investigation of his defeated opponent. And now it appears that Sessions, weakened by the constant attacks from the president he serves, could succumb to that pressure.
In an almost tragicomic echo of Richard Nixon’s statement to John Dean, “it’s wrong, that’s for sure,” Sessions in testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday said “the Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents, and that would be wrong.” Except that seems to be precisely what is going on.
This is what authoritarians and tyrants do. They use the instruments of state power, particularly the wrath of the prosecutor, to rain opprobrium down upon citizens with whom they disagree. It is what Putin did by using the Russian penal system to break the back of Sergei Magnitsky’s anti-corruption campaign and end his life. Our constitutional system of limited power, checks and balances and individual rights has protected us from such abuses of power. Trump is putting that system to the test.
The first line of defense against authoritarianism is an independent Justice Department committed to the rule of law. In 1940, Attorney General (and future Supreme Court Justice) Robert Jackson, in a famous speech to U.S. attorneys in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice warned that when “the prosecutor picks some person whom he dislikes or desires to embarrass, or selects some group of unpopular persons and then looks for an offense, that [is where] the greatest danger of abuse of prosecuting power lies. It is here that law enforcement becomes personal, and the real crime becomes that of being unpopular with the predominant or governing group.”
Sessions would do well to read the Jackson speech, and I would hope that he has the mettle to stand up to our imperious president. But his conduct in office does not give me much reason for hope.
As a younger man, when I came to work as a trial attorney at the Justice Department, it was impossible to enter the building without seeing the murals that majestically but plainly reminded us of our traditions and our duty. Justice is a hallowed place, if we keep it that way.
But if Sessions yields to pressure from the president and the president’s House Republican allies, it will be a dark day at the department I once proudly served. The rule of law will have been weakened, and our country will be in further peril.
When my friend Fossten, a fellow writer here at Sparta Report saw this op ed, he offered it to me thinking that I would have a field day with it.
If by “field day”, you meant “legendary KJ Rant” then I are certain that you won’t be disappointed my friend.
What has always ground my gears is that the Clintons and everyone who is associated with them, like Former Clinton Campaign Director and Professional Weasel John Podesta, believes themselves to be more pious than the monks who wrote the Gutenberg Bible and, as exhibited by the unadulterated BS in the above op ed, “The Smartest People in the Room”.
In the above article, John Podesta was trying his darndest to deflect the blatant illegality of the Uranium One Scandal.
That is not something that Podesta will be able to accomplish very easily.
Trust me. Like the Clintons themselves and his bother Tony, John Podesta is no angel.
For a while now, Alex Jones, owner and operator of the political website, InfoWars, who has been the subject of ridicule from both Conservatives and Liberals, has accused members of our government of being engaged in occult practices.
Danged if he wasn’t right.
In what is undoubtedly the most bizarre Wikileaks revelation to date, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta was invited to a “spirit cooking dinner” by performance artist Marina Abramovic, to take part in an occult ritual founded by Satanist Aleister Crowley.
In an email dated June 28, 2015, Abramovic wrote, “I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina.”
Tony Podesta then forwarded the email to his brother John Podesta (Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman), asking him, “Are you in NYC Thursday July 9 Marina wants you to come to dinner.”
What is “spirit cooking”?
Spirit cooking refers to “a sacrament in the religion of Thelema which was founded by Aleister Crowley” and involves an occult performance during which menstrual blood, breast milk, urine and sperm are used to create a “painting”.
According to Marina Abramovic, if the ritual is performed in an art gallery, it is merely art, but if the ritual is performed privately, then it represents an intimate spiritual ceremony.
The video embedded above depicts the bizarre nature of the ceremony. Abramovic mixes together thickly congealed blood as the “recipe” for the “painting,” which is comprised of the words, “With a sharp knife cut deeply into the middle finger of your left hand eat the pain.”
The ceremony is, “meant to symbolize the union between the microcosm, Man, and the macrocosm, the Divine, which is a representation of one of the prime maxims in Hermeticism “As Above, So Below.”
“Abramovic is known for her often-gory art that confronts pain and ritual. Her first performance involved repeatedly, stabbing herself in her hands. The next performance featured her throwing her nails, toenails, and hair into a flaming five-point star — which she eventually jumped inside of, causing her to lose consciousness,” writes Cassandra Fairbanks.
Another image shows Abramovic posing with a bloody goat’s head – a representation of the occult symbol Baphomet.
Some are even linking the spirit cooking revelation to claims that the Podesta emails contain “code for child sex trafficking” that is hidden behind mentions of types of food.
Others are connecting it to Laura Silsby, the missionary who was jailed for six months after her organization, New Life Children’s Refuge, attempted to smuggle 33 children out of Haiti into the Dominican Republic after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
Wikileaks emails reveal that Hillary’s top aide Huma Abedin forwarded numerous articles about New Life Children’s Refuge to Clinton.
“Julian Assange claimed that the Wikileaks would send Hillary Clinton to prison,” writes Cernovich. “The releases initially disappointed many people, this reporter included, as the evidence of corruption was slim. Assange was right. The real story was hidden in view.”
While the child trafficking and pedophile connections to Clinton remain unproven, the fact that her campaign chairman is apparently into spooky occult rituals involving menstrual blood and semen is easily one of the most disturbing Wikileaks revelations to date.
So, piety from Podesta is as ludicrous as Madonna claiming virginity.
This guy revels in being around political power.
That’s why he’s buddies with the “Queen of Mean”.
As the past couple of weeks have shown, even Liberals in the public eye are not immune in this present day and age from having the skeletons in their closet paraded out for all Americans to take stock of.
Just like the actors and actress in Hollywood and Senator Al Franken are finding out…
When you point a finger at somebody, there are three more pointing back at you.
Until He comes,
