Pelosi and House Dems Strike Abortion-Limiting Hyde Amendment From Labor/HHS Appropriations Bill

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

Congress has blocked federal dollars from paying for abortion coverage for decades now. But that could change if pro-choice Democrats have their way.

It’s not a surprise that money dictates policy in Washington. Want to understand how a given lawmaker or presidential administration feels about a particular issue? Look to how much money – or little – they devote to a project.

If they spend any money from the federal coffers on a particular program at all.

That’s why the Hyde Amendment has been a part of every government spending bill since 1976, just after the Supreme Court ruling which legalized abortion, Roe v. Wade.

It’s named after late Rep. Henry Hyde. R-Ill. Hyde is known for two things. He chaired the House Judiciary Committee from 1995 to 2001 and was the lead House impeachment manager for President Clinton’s 1999 impeachment trial. He also crafted the Hyde Amendment, barring the government from spending money on abortions.

Few were more ardent pro-lifers in Congress than Henry Hyde.

“It violates your right to be born,” said an impassioned Hyde on the House floor during the summer of 1995 about abortion. “Your right to life, which our Declaration (of Independence) says, is a fundamental endowment..it is inalienable, the right to life.”

But the Hyde Amendment also represented a form of Congressional détente. Pro-choice and pro-life lawmakers reached a “deal” in the 1970s. It prohibited the funneling of federal dollars to Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program for abortion services.

Like most compromises, it was negotiated, as Henry Clay might say, “to hurt.” The Hyde Amendment made sure both sides took it on the chin – although both pro-choice and pro-life advocates alike might argue their side absorbed more of an impact than the other. Pro-lifers want to eliminate abortions completely. The Hyde Amendment certainly didn’t do that. A proposal to ban abortion would probably never make it out of the House – even with a Republican majority. That’s to say nothing of overcoming a filibuster in the Senate. Meantime, pro-choice lawmakers thought the Hyde Amendment was unfair for women who rely on health care assistance from the government. The Hyde Amendment impeded that.

“We believe that who you are, where you live, your zip code, your income, should not determine whether you have coverage for the basic part of reproductive health care,” said Rachel Fey of The Power to Decide, a group which works to prevent unplanned pregnancies.

However, Democrats have now stricken the Hyde Amendment from the House version of the Labor/HHS appropriations bill. The full House approved a multi-spending bill package late last week to fund the government for fiscal year 2022. That plan included the labor/HHS appropriations bill, sans the Hyde Amendment.

“I am proud that this bill promotes equal treatment for women through increased funding for Title X and by repealing the discriminatory Hyde Amendment,” said House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn. “But I do believe repealing the Hyde Amendment is the best thing we can do to support our mothers and families and help prevent, rather than penalize unwanted pregnancies and later, riskier and more costly abortions.”

Fey called this a “game changer.”

But, upending 45 years of federal policy enraged pro-life Republicans.

“There are non-starters. There are game enders,” said Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., about DeLauro’s maneuver.

“This is a real red line for the Republican Conference,” observed Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., the top GOPer on the House Appropriations Committee.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tipped her hand on the Hyde Amendment at a December, 2020 press conference.

“Way before I was in Congress the Hyde Amendment was there. I was thinking, ‘How can we get rid of that?’ So it’s long overdue, getting rid of it, in my view,” said Pelosi.

She forecast that the Democratic House would craft a bill to torpedo the Hyde Amendment in the coming year.

But the annual appropriations process in Congress is a complicated path. It was historically significant that the Appropriations Committee and full House halted the Hyde Amendment. But then there is the Senate. And, annual spending bills have to clear two rounds of filibusters with 60-vote thresholds each. So despite the House action, few believe that ending the Hyde Amendment will ever survive the Senate.

If you are surprised that Pelosi and Company are attempting to end the Hyde Amendment, then you have not been paying attention to “The Party of Death”.

Prior to 1973, abortions were allowed in some states but restricted or almost banned in others. Every state legislature made their own decision on whether to allow abortions and under what circumstances.  There was no Federal Law in regards to abortion.   Then, in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court gave us Roe v. Wade. It declared a Texas anti-abortion statute unconstitutional and, in doing so, affected abortion laws in many other states.

For any low  information voters who might be reading, I present the following summary:

Jane Roe was an unmarried and pregnant Texas resident in 1970. Texas law made it a felony to abort a fetus unless “on medical advice for the purpose of saving the life of the mother.” Roe filed suit against Wade, the district attorney of Dallas County, contesting the statue on the grounds that it violated the guarantee of personal liberty and the right to privacy implicitly guaranteed in the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments. In deciding for Roe, the Supreme Court invalidated any state laws that prohibited first trimester abortions.

“We … acknowledge our awareness of the sensitive and emotional nature of the abortion controversy, of the vigorous opposing views, even among physicians, and of the deep and seemingly absolute convictions that the subject inspires.” — Justice Blackmun (1973), majority opinion in Roe v. Wade

When you talk to Far Left Democrats about this stopping of a beating heart, they will  claim that, a human fetus is “just a clump of cells”. 

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” says:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

Several years ago, then-President Obama, who was brushing away tears on Tuesday Morning on behalf of limiting the Second Amendment Rights of American Citizens, said the following,

Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.

My question for Speaker Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite, is:

When do children stop being a “punishment” and start being precious lives to shed tears over?

Is it simply a matter of “Political Expediency”?

Marching Toward Marxism: Pelosi Names AOC to New House Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tapped progressive firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a new House committee she formed to address wealth inequality in America.

Pelosi, D-Calif., on Thursday praised the New York Democrat’s commitment to “addressing generational disparities” and “increasing worker power” in naming her to the new Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth.

Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., will chair the panel designed to tackle the gap between America’s top CEOs and worker pay, with Pelosi calling the widening chasm a “historic picture of injustice.”

The committee is charged with studying and recommending proposals for making the economy fairer and ensuring more Americans have opportunities.

Ocasio-Cortez, the author of the Green New Deal and the federal jobs guarantee, praised the job of the committee Wednesday, saying “this is an extremely important moment.”

She highlighted her work on the Financial Services Committee and said she hopes the new committee will examine traditional assumptions about the economy.

“One of the things that would be interesting for us to examine is that we should probably revisit some of the basic macroeconomic assumptions about the U.S. economy and not take for granted that inflation is due to one thing or another, or that full employment is impossible in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said at a news event for the new committee, adding that she wants to ensure that “every American has a dignified job.”

Aside from Ocasio-Cortez and Himes, the other Democrats Pelosi appointed to the committee are Reps. Marcy Kaptur of Ohio, Gwen Moore of Wisconsin, Vicente Gonzalez of Texas, Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Angie Craig of Minnesota and Sara Jacobs of California.

“wealth inequality”?

Are we still in America?

Gentle reader, if you doubted me before when I have told you that the Democrats are fully embracing Marxism, doubt no longer.

Why is this happening? How did we get here?

Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.

Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.

First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.

It also helped to cement in stone, American Minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.

The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.

A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.

What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.

It had the opposite effect.

The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.

Uncle Sugar became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.

Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, the people I saw, while working in a State Employment Office, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.

Since August of 2014, the results of LBJ’s “Great Society” have been the lead story in seemingly, every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.

But, I digress…

On a Sunday, in October of 2008, outside of Toledo, Ohio, Democratic Presidential Nominee Obama met a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe, who owned his own plumbing company, dared to ask Obama about his proposed tax hikes. In fact, he told Obama that he did not want to pay higher taxes, he was already paying enough. Obama told him,

Now, I respect the disagreement. I just want you to be clear – it’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.”

…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.

Evidently, the “fairness” Obama sought was only the prelude to what we are witnessing under the Presidential Administration of poor ol’ demented Joe Biden.

And, so, in the name of “Social Justice”, “the Far Left  DEmocratic Members of the House of Representatives are on a quest to replace the Engine of Capitalism which built this nation into a World Power with “Democratic Socialism”, a form of Marxism, a THEORY which has failed in every country in which it has been tried.

No Individual Achievement allowed.

No American Exceptionalism to ever be spoken off.

No individuality allowed in the Proletariat.

Welcome to the USSA, “komrades!”

AOC and 34 Other House Democrats Want ICE to Stop Deporting Gang Members

 
See the source image

Just as Vladimir Lenin used the Bolsheviks to overthrow the Russian Government, so the Far Left or “Justice Democrats” are quite willing to use gangs who have arrived here illegally for their own purposes.

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., led a group of her House Democratic colleagues in a letter to federal immigration officials demanding an overhaul of immigration policies and objecting to gang members in the country illegally being targeted for deportation.

Ocasio-Cortez and 34 of her Democratic colleagues sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tae Johnson, calling on them to change immigration policies that rely on the US’s “discriminatory legal system.”

The lawmakers claim an interim enforcement memo issued by ICE “does not adequately protect the liberty interests of asylum seekers” and presumes an illegal migrant — including those convicted of aggravated felonies —to be a “border security and enforcement and removal priority.”

“This blanket presumption will effectively mean detaining an untold number of people who have fled persecution,” the lawmakers wrote.

Additionally, the letter claims the “definition of an aggravated felony” is a “relic of the racist War on Drugs” and that the “category has been interpreted to include many state drug misdemeanors.”

“‘Aggravated felonies’ as a category have been designed to ensure that people have as few rights as possible to fight detention and deportation,” Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues wrote.

“Moreover, we are concerned that the memorandum only requires ICE officers have a ‘good faith belief’ that someone has an aggravated felony conviction even while acknowledging that such a determination is ‘a complex question,’” they continued.

The lawmakers also claimed the memo “invites racial profiling” by making a migrant who has been convicted of actively or intentionally participating in gang activity a “public safety enforcement and removal priority.”

They claimed that leaving ICE agents to determine whether someone has been convicted of being involved in gang activity or an aggravated felony “should not be left to an officer’s discretion or ‘good faith belief.’”

“It is well documented that law enforcement’s practices of labelling people as gang-involved is often faulty, based on arbitrary and racist factors, and not subject to due process,” the lawmakers claimed.

“We are in a moment of racial reckoning in this country, with communities across the country calling for an end to mass incarceration and racist policing,” the group continued. “It is time to end the carceral approach to immigration, which relies on these same flawed systems.”

The letter was signed by multiple progressive lawmakers, including “Squad” members Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y.

Additionally, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., signed onto the letter after Justice Democrats — a group linked to Ocasio-Cortez — backed far-left candidate Rana Abdelhamid in a primary attempt.

DHS did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Yeah. Leave those poor widdle gang members alone.

They dindu nuffin.

Sheesh.

So, just what is this “Justice Democrats” Group all about?

According to their website,

Justice Democrats is recruiting and supporting progressive Democrats all over the country, starting with Congress. We’re working to transform the Democratic Party while building independent power. We do this by running primary challengers against out-of-touch Democratic incumbents and organizing to hold the party accountable to our issues.

So, who is the “Money Man” behind the Justice Democrats”?

I will give you three guesses and the first tow don’t count.

Per MikeHuckabee.com,

“Members linked to Soros-funded digital media asked Ocasio-Cortez to run for office,” the report states, “which guarantees she would get favorable news coverage by a media network that reaches almost 300 million people monthly.” Well, we know it was Justice Democrats that recruited her to run for office, so this suggests a strong connection.

The report goes on to confirm that connection, saying that “one member of the Soros-funded media, Cenk Uygur, also founded one of the two political groups responsible for asking Ocasio-Cortez to run, Justice Democrats, whose goal is to get Sanders-like politicians elected to Congress.” Sanders, as in socialist. (Our understanding is that Uygur is no longer officially with JD, due to some #MeToo issues regarding his treatment of women in the workplace.)

The DCNF story also links favorable news coverage by “Soros-linked digital media” to AOC’s win in the Democratic primary, which, of course, meant an automatic win in the heavily Democratic district. The other organization mentioned in this report, Brand New Congress, had essentially the same people involved.

According to the Media Research Center, “[George] Soros funds nearly every major left-wing media source in the United States. Forty-five of those are financed through his support of the Media Consortium…The list is predictable — everything from Alternet to the Young Turks.” The Young Turks is Cenk Uygur’s YouTube channel, so that must be the “Soros-linked digital media” mentioned by DCNF.

So, there you go. Is George Soros involved? OF COURSE he is!

When the Caravans from The Triangle Area started heading to “el Norte” during the Trump Presidency, I wrote an article describing how Soros was one of the funders of that little enterprise.

I am certain that he is still funding it.

So, adding 1 + 1 together, if Soros is involved with Justice Democrats-supported push to allow the Mexican and South American Gangs to run rampant in out Sovereign Nation from the time they leave their home countries to the time they illegally enter America…shouldn’t he be held responsible for the damage that he is doing to our country?

Oh, wait.

There I go thinking logically again.

I forgot

We are experiencing the third Presidential Term of Barack Hussein Obama.

Anything foes.

Welcome to the jungle.

Until He Comes,

KJ

Dems Set to Present Legislation Today to Expand SCOTUS From 9 to 13 Justices in Order to Rule America Forever

pic_giant_040815_SM_Justice-System-DT-2

“President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court. It was totally within his right to do that. He violated no law. He was legalistically, absolutely correct. “But it was a bonehead idea. It was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. And it put in question, if for an entire decade, the independence of the most-significant body … in this country, the Supreme Court of the United States of America.” – Senator Joe Biden, 1983

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court.

Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., Hank Johnson, D-Ga., and Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., will hold a press conference on Thursday to introduce the proposal on the steps of the Supreme Court.

Given their control of the White House and the Senate, the legislation could allow them to supersede the current conservative majority by “packing” the Court with liberal justices.

Spokespeople for the lawmakers’ offices did not return Fox News’ requests Wednesday night for further details.

The Intercept reported on Wednesday that the legislation will propose expanding the court to 13 justices, from nine.

The Supreme Court has had nine justices since the 19th century, though it is not required by the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced legislation earlier this year that included a constitutional amendment to preserve the current number of sitting justices, as well as provisions prohibiting congress from passing legislation to expand the number.

Cruz first introduced that legislation in October, as some Democrats indicated an openness to expanding the size of the high court following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg’s vacancy was filled by Donald Trump-appointee Amy Coney Barrett, marking Trump’s third appointment to the Supreme Court. Justice Barrett also tilted the ideological power balance of the court in favor of conservatives 6 to 3.

Democrats often attribute part of that shift in the court to the fact that then-Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., refused to consider Merrick Garland – nominated by President Barack Obama in 2016 – to fill a vacant seat during an election year. That seat, belonging to Antonin Scalia, was eventually filled by conservative Justice Neil M. Gorsuch.

Trump also appointed Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

…Biden has previously opposed the idea of court-packing. However, he said in the fall that he intended to set up a bipartisan commission to study Supreme Court reforms.

This week, the president signed an executive order forming the “Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States” to analyze the merits of proposed reforms.

The Democrats desperately want to pack the court so that, like all fascist governments before them, they can rule with impunity.

For the last several decades, and especially during the Obama Administration, the Liberals of the Democratic Party  relied upon Judicial Activism to overturn the will of the American People and to “get their way” on matters of political and societal importance.

Sometimes they won and sometimes they lost.

A big win for the Democrats was the Supreme court ruling allowing gays to get married.

It was taken to the courts by the Democrats after American Citizens voted not to allow gay marriage in their states. Liberal Judicial Activist Judges, some gay themselves, began striking down the referendums passed in individual states, finally leading to a ruling by the United States Supreme Court.

During the Trump Administration, Judicial Activists attempted to thwart some of the actions taken of behalf of the American People by our President, such as their attempts to stop the Travel Ban, designed to keep those who would seek to do Americans harm out of our Sovereign Nation.

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.

As the 2022 Midterm Elections loom in the distance, we, as Americans, must remember that the Majority Party in both houses of Congress and the President are the ones who will shape our Judicial System for decades to come.

That is why we must get out and vote when the time comes.

However, what we can do right now, is let our Republican Representatives and Senators know that not only must they hold the line on keeping the Supreme Court just the way it is, they also must sway at least 3 “Moderate Democratic Representatives to vote with them.

If the Republicans do not prevent the Democrats’ attempt to pack the Supreme Court, our Judiciary will change from one which interprets and enforces the Constitution to one which rewrites and ignores it, while ensuring that Democrats remain in power in  Washington, D.C. in perpetuity. 

This must not be allowed to happen.

We must, once again, rise up, speak out, and let the Democrat Elite know that we are not going to allow them to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, like we did on November 8, 2016.

Our future as a Constitutional Republic depends on it.

Until He Comes,

The War on Christianity Returns as the House Passes “The Equality Act”

See the source image

I cannot say this more emphatically—for people, for businesses, and for ministries of faith, the Equality Act is a threat to life as we know it in our nation today. It’s a real game-changer. – Rev. Franklin Graham

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives this past week passed “The Equality Act”, a piece of legislation which they had previously passed in 2019. Only this time, they named it The “For The People” Act.

ChristianPost.com reported before it passed that

The wide-reaching Equality Act championed by Democrats would put the hiring practices of faith-based organizations in “jeopardy” and will create additional religious freedom concerns for Christian schools, churches and ministries, a prominent legal nonprofit argues.

Alliance Defending Freedom officials last Friday detailed the implications of the Equality Act, legislation backed by President Joe Biden that would codify discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity into federal law.

The legal organization, which has won several religious freedom cases before the U.S. Supreme Court in recent years, warned those watching an online webinar that the Equality Act could widen the definition of public accommodation in a way that could put faith-based institutions at risk.

Senior Counsel Gregory Baylor said that the bill, which passed the Democrat-controlled House in 2019, “dramatically expands” the scope of what constitutes a place of public accommodation.

“Under the law we have right now, it’s actually not that many entities: it’s restaurants, it’s hotels, it’s means of transportation,” he explained.

According to Baylor, supporters of the Equality Act want to expand the definition of public accommodation to include a “much, much broader category of organizations,” including “nonprofit entities like shelters and food banks.”

“The way that they’ve written it doesn’t rule out the possibility that a religious school or even a church in some of its functions might be deemed to be a place of public accommodation,” he continued.

…Noting that many religious organizations have policies that reflect their beliefs about marriage, sexual morality and distinction between the sexes, Baylor warned that the Equality Act “puts all of those in jeopardy.”

“There is some concern that even a church could be deemed a place of public accommodation” if it opens its facilities “for an event that’s open to the public,” Baylor stated.

This coming from the same Congress in which a member had a sexual relationship with a Chinese Spy named Fang Fang.

But, other than that, they’re outstanding Moral Arbiters.

Sheesh.

This push to allow “Transgendered” Americans to invade women’s restrooms in public places, is a logical (at least , using the convoluted logic of Liberals) next step, following SCOTUS ruling which overturned the will of the voters, in the overwhelming majority of states, legalizing “Gay Marriage”.

However, per usual, the hubris of the Political Minority in America, known as Liberals, precluded them from foreseeing the massive blowback that they have received, in regards to this latest attempt by them to make up a new “Constitutional Right”.

One of the arguments that Liberals have been countering the objections to their ludicrous demand with for quite a while now, is the fact that Europe has had Unisex Public Restrooms in place for years.

While that is true, what they fail to mention, is the fact that those restrooms all have PRIVATE stalls, which a common area to wash your hands, after you “finish your business”.

They also neglect to mention the fact that the decades-long degeneration of Morality and Virtue across Europe has lead to the current chaos being wrought by “immigrating” Muslims, who have set up Sharia Law in Europe. The same laws which call for the public execution of homosexuals in Muslim Countries.

What Modern American Liberals still fail to grasp is the concept of American Individualism, a concept strengthened by our American Faith and Traditional Values System, concepts which trace all the way back to our nation’s birth, set in place by our nation’s Founding Fathers.

Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Christianity, the “Faith of Our Fathers”, the professed faith of 75% of Americans, per Gallup, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.

Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?

During the Obama Administration, there was a concerted and very visible effort to limit the role that Christianity plays in the day-to-day lives of average Americans.

And now, after installing their demented old puppet, Joe Biden as POTUS, Democrats believe that the “State” can now become America’s Moral Arbiter.

This was already done, decades ago, in Europe, and now, they are suffering the consequences of their actions.

The Christian Post published an article a few years ago reporting that

The Church of England is reportedly considering plans to keep some historic village churches across the country opened only on holy days such as Christmas and Easter due to population shifts and the ever-growing decline in attendance and church membership.

A major 66-page report by the CofE’s Church Buildings Review Group noted that many churches are no longer sustainable, and that about one in four parishes have fewer than 10 regular worshipers.

The report proposes turning some parishes into “festival churches” in order to ease the financial burden, suggesting that they will only be used for key dates on the religious calendar, or occasions such as marriage and funerals.

Festival churches are only one of the widespread changes proposed by the review group, which says it is focused on “securing spiritual and numerical growth and serving the common good.”

“We believe that — apart from growing the church — there is no single solution to the challenges posed by our extensive responsibility for part of the nation’s historic heritage,” the group added.

The CofE has had to deal with sharp decline over the past 30 years, as reported in May by NatCen Social Research.

The group’s Social Attitudes survey found that 40 percent of the British population identified as Anglicans in 1983, but that number is down to only 17 percent in 2014. Presently only 8.5 million Britons identify as Anglicans, the survey said.

People of no religious faith now make up close to half of the population in Britain, or 49 percent, which is up from their 31 percent count in 1983.

With the steady rise of immigration, the rise of non-Christian faiths has also been well documented, with Islam making up close to 5 percent of all Britons in 2014, up from 0.5 percent in 1983.

Why are Modern American Liberals so focused on removing, or, at the very least, marginalizing, America’s Christian Heritage, as found in our System of Traditional Values and Beliefs?

Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.

It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.

Why else would they be trying so hard to fight against the influence of Someone Whom they really don’t believe in?

I see them every single day on the television, on the Internet, on Facebook Political Pages, posting stupid meme (a picture with words on it) after stupid meme, attempting to make fun of The Great I Am and those of us who have given our lives to Him.

They are so hateful, and filled with such bitterness, that it is difficult to engage them in “conversation”.

Perhaps, somewhere in their back of their minds, all of these Modern American Liberals, realize that they are fighting a losing battle.

Christianity continues to thrive in America, despite their best efforts.

America was built upon a Solid Rock.

To ignore our nation’s Faith-Based Founding and Heritage is to live in purposeful ignorance.

As President Ronald Reagan said,

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

And, as Hebrews 13:8 tells us,

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Regardless of the ongoing Political Machinations by Modern American Liberals to tear asunder the Moral fabric of the nation for the “Good of the State” and the propagation of the “Hive-Mind”, the God of Abraham, who brought our Founding Fathers to this Land, will have the Final Word.

He always does.

Nadler:…”God’s Will is of No Concern to This Congress”…So We Noticed

See the source image

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. – John Adams, 2nd President of the United States of America

ToddStarnes.com reports that

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) triggered a bunch of God-hating Democrats after he pointed out that God makes people uniquely male or female.

“When men or women claim to be able to choose their own sexual identity, they are making a statement that God did not know what he was doing when he created them,” the congressman said.

Steube accused Democrats of trying to define what it means to be male or female.

“The gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design. Whenever a nation’s laws no longer reflect the standards of God that nation is in rebellion against him and will inevitably bear the consequences,” the congressman said. “We are seeing the consequences of rejecting God here in our country today.”

That comment drew a fiery response from Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

“What any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress,” added New York Democrat Jerry Nadler.

Democrat Katherine Clark, of Massachusetts, hit out at any member of Congress who “describe transgender people as something less-than, as underserving, and illegitimate”.

May God have mercy on our nation and may He protect us from these godless, heathen Democrats.

Boys and girls, we really should not be surprised by the idiotic statement by Rep. Jerry Nadler.

For what now seems like an eternity, those on the Left side (along with some of those who claim to be on the Right Side) of the Political Aisle, have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.

They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”.

Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.

And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman, and standing up for the equality of all faiths, when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

So, when is all this Christianity in America going to “fade away” as predicted and hoped for by “the Smartest People in the Room”?

As polls have shown…not any time soon.

America remains a nation whose population consists of 70-75%, who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior and 92%, who believe in God.

However, if you read some of the comments posted on Websites and Facebook Political Pages, by self-appointed “pundits”, you would think that Christian Americans are the minority in this nation.

I can testify from personal experience, having caught flack for sticking to my Christian American Conservative Principles, since beginning my daily posts on this blog in April of 2010.

My posts, concerning American Christianity, seem to “touch a nerve” in both Liberals and Atheists, alike. (But, in at least some cases, I repeat myself.)

Their reaction has hardly been unexpected.

Of course, one of the Hot Button Issues, which those Liberals and Atheists who responded, over the years, immediately denied, was that our Founding Fathers were Christians and that our country was founded on a Judeo-Christian Belief System.

Evidently, they had never read anything, except what their like-minded, non-believing soothsayers, allowed them to. Or else, they would have read historical documents like President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, written on November 1, 1777, and found at wallbuilders.com:

The committee appointed to prepare a recommendation to the several states, to set apart a day of public thanksgiving, brought in a report; which was taken into consideration, and agreed to as follows:

Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of; and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common providence, but also smile upon us in the prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success:

It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

And it is further recommended, that servile labor, and such recreation as, though at other times innocent, may be unbecoming the purpose of this appointment, be omitted on so solemn an occasion.

Of course, the Poster Boy for the claim by Liberal/Atheist responders, concerning the Founders’ lack of Christianity, is Thomas Jefferson.

Atheists like to bring up the fact that he wrote a version of the Bible which left out Christ’s miracles. What they are reluctant to do, though, is explain why he wrote his book that way. David Barton explains on wallbuilders.com:

The reader [of a newspaper article which Barton is replying to], as do many others, claimed that Jefferson omitted all miraculous events of Jesus from his “Bible.” Rarely do those who make this claim let Jefferson speak for himself. Jefferson’s own words explain that his intent for that book was not for it to be a “Bible,” but rather for it to be a primer for the Indians on the teachings of Christ (which is why Jefferson titled that work, “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth”). What Jefferson did was to take the “red letter” portions of the New Testament and publish these teachings in order to introduce the Indians to Christian morality. And as President of the United States, Jefferson signed a treaty with the Kaskaskia tribe wherein he provided—at the government’s expense—Christian missionaries to the Indians. In fact, Jefferson himself declared, “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.” While many might question this claim, the fact remains that Jefferson called himself a Christian, not a deist.

Atheist Activists and young and/or misinformed Liberals and self-proclaimed “Libertarians” (but, in a lot of cases, I repeat myself), who reply to my posts, insist that Crosses and other Christian symbols have no place in the Public Square.

Relying on Far Left Ideologues or their own opinion as their “highest authority”, they continue their push to eliminate the practice of American Christianity and the Traditional American Morality and Ethics which go with it from Everyday American Life, attempting to regulate Christians’ role in American Society as remaining unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, on Sunday mornings, only.

Or, as Actor and Professional Wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would say, Modern American Liberals want American Christians to

Sit down, shut up, and know your role!

Unfortunately for them, our Constitution and the Bill of Rights reinforced our rights as Americans to practice our Faith as We see fit. 

The First Amendment to the Constitution still holds.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Being filled with human beings, America’s churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the Name of the Lord.

Churches today have to walk a fine line.

The spiritual battle raging between the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.

Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.

Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?

Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?

Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.

It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “36 genders”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.

Why else would they be trying so hard to fight against the influence of Someone Whom they really don’t believe in?

And, a second and final thought, found in the Word of God, occurred to me while watching “Chair” Jerry Nadler act like the south end of a north-bound mule

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good. – Psalms 14:1

Graham Does Not Think That Biden is in Charge, 3 Dozen House Dems Want Biden to Give Up Sole Authority to Launch Nukes

See the source image

In a pair of related stories.

Newsmax.com reports that

President Joe Biden was a moderate senator, but the administration implementing all these progressive policies in his first weeks in office shows it just is not him in charge, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Newsmax TV.

“I like Joe Biden, but the agenda is AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.], [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi, [Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer, Sen. Bernie Sanders,” Graham told “Greg Kelly Reports” of his former fellow senator Biden.

“So, no, I don’t think Joe Biden’s in charge.”

Newsmax.com also reports that

A group of about three dozen Democrats in the House have signed a letter calling for President Joe Biden to give up his sole authority to authorize the launch of nuclear weapons, which was obtained by Politico.

“Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” reads the letter, which was spearheaded by Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., according to Politico. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.”

The letter continues, “While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so. The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”

The congressman said in a tweet on Wednesday: “ICYMI: I’m calling on @POTUS to install checks & balances in our nuclear command-and-control structure. Past presidents have threatened nuclear attacks on other countries or exhibited concerning behavior that cast doubt on their judgment.”

The Democrats suggest several alternatives to the president’s sole authority, including requiring other officials in the presidential line of succession, specifically the vice president and the House Speaker, neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree — to concur with a launch order.”

Here’s a “Pro Tip”:

The Democrats are worried about Joe Biden launching a Nuclear Attack BECAUSE HE IS BATTLING DEMENTIA…and losing.

Sen. Lindsey Graham was stating the obvious.

It was obvious during the Presidential Campaign that Joe’s lights were dimming and nobody was home, like when he faced the television screen behind him to deliver a speech, instead of the live crowd in front of him.

Or, the time that he was in a little store, and a young nurse had to guide him out of there by his arm to make sure that he made it into a waiting car.

And, how about the “Lids” which continue even today, barring access to Biden from the Main Stream Media and everybody else?

Then, there is the matter of the earpiece which Biden constantly wears. Who is barking orders at him? Susan Rice? Valerie Jarrett? Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm)?

Those who are controlling Biden are fooling no one.

An Australian News Reporter recently aired a report about the President of the United States of America being a feeble old man with dementia.

Can you imagine how the Ayatollahs in Iran are rubbing their hands with glee over this situation?

They will have an atomic bomb in no time, now.

And, speaking of nukes, the House Democrats who want Biden to given them the authority to launch a nuke. By doing so, they have just allowed Americans to see them scared spitless over realizing that Biden is every bit as feeble and demented as Former President Trump and any one with any common sense has claimed him to be.

So, what are the Democrats going to do?

I believe that within a year we will be witnessing the Democrats and their minions in the Main Stream Media singing the praise of President “Heels Up” Harris.

That might be scarier than Sleepy Joe having the authority to nuke someone.

House Democrats Want to Remove Conservative News Channels from Cable

See the source imageSee the source image

The Democrats are sending a message that is as clear as it is troubling—these regulated entities will pay a price if the targeted newsrooms do not conform to Democrats’ preferred political narratives. – FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr

Newsmax.com reports that

Democrats are waging an assault on the First Amendment, with two Democrat House lawmakers demanding answers from cable television providers on the role they play in the “spread of dangerous misinformation.”

The letter, signed by Reps. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., and Jerry McNerney, D-Calif., and released to the press Monday, targets only conservative-leaning outlets, including Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN.

On Wednesday, the House subcommittee on Communications and Technology of the Committee on Energy and Commerce is scheduled to hold a hearing on disinformation and extremism in media.

Cable service companies such as Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox, and Altice all received the same letter on Monday pressing for answers on policies related to the spread of disinformation, rumors, and conspiracy theories on networks they carry.

The letter directly only assails conservative news networks Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN and accuses them of airing misinformation on various topics – among them, the coronavirus, the 2020 election, and the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Newsmax issued a statement Monday decrying what the company said was an attack on the First Amendment. The Newsmax statement read:

“The House Democrats’ attack on free speech and basic First Amendment rights should send chills down the spines of all Americans. Newsmax reported fairly and accurately on allegations and claims made by both sides during the recent election contest. We did not see that same balanced coverage when CNN and MSNBC pushed for years the Russian collusion hoax, airing numerous claims and interviews with Democrat leaders that turned out to be patently false.”

The “Marxification” of America continues.

Any Conservative, or in the case of the “New” Fox News Channel’,”Squishy Moderate” news outlet, deemed as a threat to “the State” must be banished forever.

Don’t believe me?

Look at how ugly the Liberals were on Social Media after the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, passed away.

They called him everything but a child of God.

What the Far Left Capitol Hill Democrats want to do, like their Marxist role models, is to get rid of, or cancel, any political voices who do not praise Marxism or bow the knew to the Democrat Elite.

These Dems are going after these news outlets for the same reason they put a fence around the Capitol Building and the White House: They are deathly afraid of Conservative thought and opinion.

While Liberal political thought and opinion is based on “ideas” leading to “Radical Change”, Conservative political thought and opinion seeks to provide common sense solutions to the problems which we, as Americans, are facing today.

That’s why Rush Limbaugh as said that he lived in “Realityville”.

The “spreading of lies”, especially now that we are experiencing the Obama Administration 2.0, is done mainly by the Main Stream Media and the camera hogs on Capital Hill.

With Joe Biden sitting there asleep in the Oval Office, the Republicans are now spending their days refuting the Democrat lies…not spreading them.

There is no way that why these two Democrats propose is actually going to happen.

However, it certainly does inform average Americans living here in the Heartland as to what the intentions of those who are supposed to be working for US are.

For my vantage point in my man cave in Northwest Mississippi, I would say that the Dems what to turn America into a Democratic Socialist “Paradise”.

Wouldn’t you?

Graham Urges Biden to “Rise to the Occasion” and Tell the Dems to Call Off Their Second Impeachment of Trump

See the source image

Newsmax.com reports that

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., urged Joe Biden to push back against his fellow Democrats’ impeachment effort of President Donald Trump, saying in a series of Twitter posts, if he truly wants “unity,” he should instruct them to drop the matter.

“It is now time for President-elect Biden to rise to the occasion and instruct his party to call off post-presidential impeachment proceedings,” Graham wrote in one of about a half-dozen posts.

Biden has repeatedly called for unity and announced the theme of his inauguration will be “America United,” a ploy some, such as television host Megyn Kelly, have called cynical and hypocritical.

Graham pointed to the fact impeachment is merely a tool to remove someone from office, which will have occurred by the time the Senate will be able to commence any trial. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he would not recall the Senate into a special session to take up the matter.

“It’s now time for President-elect Biden to reject post presidential impeachment because of the destructive force it would have on the presidency and nation,” Graham wrote. “Every president is subject to the laws of the land. However, impeachment is political and will further divide the nation.

“President Trump will be leaving office next Tuesday, and impeachment in the House and trial in the Senate within a week, would do great damage to our institutions and could incite further violence,” he wrote.

Miss Lindsey, you can plead all you want.

However, if you believe that Biden is going to show any leadership as President of the United States of America, you have not been paying attention.

Biden did not know what town he was in most of the time while he was campaigning.

He had to be steered to a waiting limo by what appeared to be a nurse on one occaision.

On another occasion, he turned his back to the crowd at an even, and started delivering his speech to the video wall behind him.

Biden willl not be making any decisions in his presidency, his handlers will take call of running the country for him.

Biden is a demented old fool who is being used as a figurehead.

Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are not listening, anyway.

They are on a vendetta to attempt to disqualify Trump from running for President again in 2024 by impeaching him.

They do not care if Trump’s popularity is sitting at 49% while theirs is barely at 20% and dropping rapidly.

They do not even care that the FBI has discovered that the D.C. Riot was planned and had nothing at all to do with President Trump’s speech that he delivered that fateful Wednesday morning.

Like I wrote during the first sham impeachment, they are like Captain Ahab leading his crew on a voyage of destruction for the sake of revenge against the great white whale, Moby Dick.

Pelosi and the House Democrats do not care what the country thinks about what they are doing.

They stopped serving American Voters a long time ago.

Now, they only serve special interest groups…and themselves.

So, Miss Lindsey, instead of flapping your gums, as you have for the last four years…

DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

Pelosi Announces New Congressional “Select Committee” to Study and Make Policies to Bring “Economic Fairness” To America

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.” ― Ronald Reagan

CNSNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) announced today (12/30/2020) that she has created a new congressional committee—inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt—that is designed “to study and combat the concentration of wealth in America and its role in triggering economic collapse.”

“As House Speaker, I am proud to announce the creation of the new, bipartisan Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth, which will be an essential force in Congressional Democrats’ action to combat the crisis of income and wealth disparity in America,” Pelosi said.

“It is molded after the mission of the Temporary National Economic Committee, founded by President Roosevelt and the Congress after the Great Depression to study and combat the concentration of wealth in America and its role in triggering economic collapse,” she said.

“As President Roosevelt said before founding this Committee, ‘The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself… the liberty of a democracy is not safe if its business system does not provide employment and produce and distribute goods in such a way as to sustain an acceptable standard of living,’” she said.

“The past several decades have shown with devastating clarity the marked imbalance between the financial fortunes of CEOs and workers,” Pelosi said.

Here is the full text of Pelosi’s statement about the creation of this new committee:

Nancy Pelosi: “As House Speaker, I am proud to announce the creation of the new, bipartisan Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth, which will be an essential force in Congressional Democrats’ action to combat the crisis of income and wealth disparity in America. It is molded after the mission of the Temporary National Economic Committee, founded by President Roosevelt and the Congress after the Great Depression to study and combat the concentration of wealth in America and its role in triggering economic collapse.

“As President Roosevelt said before founding this Committee, ‘The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself… the liberty of a democracy is not safe if its business system does not provide employment and produce and distribute goods in such a way as to sustain an acceptable standard of living.’

“The past several decades have shown with devastating clarity the marked imbalance between the financial fortunes of CEOs and workers. The reverence of those who amass profits by stagnating wages has seriously undermined the lives and livelihoods of many Americans, while slowing economic growth in our country. This year, the disturbing, dangerous trend of economic disparity has also been accelerated by the coronavirus economic crisis.

“The devaluing of work has had a negative impact on consumer confidence, job creation and economic growth. And the situation of families no longer believing that their children will have a brighter future than they is seriously damaging and demoralizing to our society.

“That is why we are creating this Select Committee, which will be a resource to the Congress to make policy related to economic fairness, access to education and workforce development. Working with the Committees of Jurisdiction, the Select Committee will study and recommend proposals to make our economy work for everyone, powering American economic growth while ensuring that no one is left out or left behind in the 21st Century Economy.”

“Economic Fairness”

Now, where have I heard something like that before?

Oh, yeah.

From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs – Karl Marx,”Critique of the Gotha Programme”, 1875

Several years ago, Steve Kroft interviewed her for 60 minutes. Investors.com reported…

Why, he asked, had she and her husband participated in “a very large” initial public offering “from Visa at a time when there was major legislation affecting credit-card companies making its way through the House?”

The legislation in question, a bill introduced by then-Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers in March 2008, would have let merchants negotiate lower swipe fees with credit card companies.

The bill made it out of committee on Oct. 3, 2008, but never to the floor for a vote. A version of the swipe-fee bill made it into an amendment by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., to the Dodd-Frank bill in 2010.

As the bill was proceeding, Pelosi’s husband, Paul, a wealthy San Francisco investor of the type the Occupy Wall Street mobs have targeted, bought $1 million to $5million of Visa stock in three separate transactions in a part of the IPO that “60 Minutes” said was offered to a select group of investors.

Interestingly, the wealthy Pelosi has voiced support for the OWS mobs, calling them a genuine and spontaneous movement protesting the very financial wheeling and dealing that the great unwashed feel has victimized them. She gained the speaker’s gavel in 2006 while railing against an alleged GOP “culture of corruption.”

Pelosi is also a big fan of green energy. So is her brother-in-law, Ronald Pelosi, a senior executive with a company called Pacific Corporate Group.

Among PCG’s investments is SolarReserve, based in Santa Monica, Calif., which received a $737 million loan guarantee to build a 110-megawatt solar-thermal plant in Tonopah, Nev.

The loan was granted on the last day of the stimulus loan program, which also gave over half a billion to a failing but politically connected Solyndra.

While speaker, Pelosi was famous for her use of government aircraft to ferry back and forth from her San Francisco district.

According to documents obtained by Judicial Watch, Air Pelosi, as critics called the fleet, cost the taxpayers $28,210.51 per flight.

Her fondness for Boeing aircraft does not extend to supporting Boeing’s plan to create badly needed jobs in the right-to-work state of South Carolina.

As we have noted, she says if the plant is nonunion, the National Labor Relations Board should shut the project down.

Pelosi doesn’t live in a glass house.  She lives in a glass mansion…with a big wall around it.

As you may know, the Politboro, was the huge Central Government in control of the Marxist Soviet Union. They were the reason that the Soviet Union eventually went belly up.

They become rich while the Proletariat (the working class) remained poor and subservient to the Politburo.

As I showed earlier, “Economic Fairness” is just another pseudonym for Marxism/Socialism/Communism.

The problem with Marxist Theory remains that it is just a theory. It has never worked anywhere it has been tried…not even in Red China, a country which is becoming more capitalistic every day.

The reason for the failure of Marxism can not only just be found in the history of the Soviet Union. The Congressional members of the Far Left Democratic Party who are “living the good life” on their “business junkets” and in their mansions with a room-size ice cream freezer like Speaker Pelosi are providing a prime example of why Marxism always fails.

The Politburo get richer and the “Proletariat” continue to suffer due to unchecked political power gained through greed and hypocrisy.

With Her announcement of this new “Congressional Committee”, Pelosi and her fellow House Dems could not have sent out a plainer message if they had placed a Facebook Ad.

Like those whom they have modeled their political ideology after, this “New Politboro” cares about keeping and growing their political influence and wealth. They simply do not care who has to suffer in order for them to make a political point. Everything which they accused President Trump in front of the television news cameras of for the past four years has been a deflection to hide their own unbridled lust for power and their hypocrisy.

And, as we have seen since the 2020 Presidential Election, especially in the last couple of weeks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Vichy Republicans possess the same set of priorities as the Democrats.

And to think…Nero just fiddled.
