Senate Republicans Block Erroneously Named “For The People Act” Bill Designed to Keep Democrats in Power Forever

See the source image

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”.

THANK GOD.

Daunte Wright, the Man BLM and Antifa are Rioting Over, Had an Open Warrant Against Him For Attempted Armed Robbery When He Was Killed

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records.

Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minn., Hennepin County District Court documents show.

According to the documents, Wright and Driver went to a party at an apartment in the 600 block of North Oaks Drive in Osseo – about 5 miles from Brooklyn Center, where Wright was fatally shot.

Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed the Wright and Driver to spend the night.

In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work.

As Wright and Driver were waiting for their rides, the other woman who stayed behind said Wright allegedly blocked the door, preventing her from leaving. Wright then allegedly pulled a black handgun “with silver trim out from either his right waistband or his right coat pocket,” pointed it at the woman and demanded the $820, the court documents say.

The victim asked him, “Are you serious?” to which he allegedly responded, “Give me the f—ing money, I know you have it,” according to the court documents.

When she asked again if he was serious, he allegedly told her, “I’m not playing around.”

Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away.

The court documents say she was able to pry herself loose and “started to kneel down and scream.” She told authorities that she allegedly heard Driver tell her to give the money to Wright, who was yelling at her to stop screaming.

She reportedly screamed at them to get out of her apartment, telling them that the cops were close. Wright allegedly told her he would shoot her and said, “Give me the money and we will leave, give me the money and we will go.”

He allegedly tried to choke her a second time and tried to take her money, according to the court documents. Driver allegedly told her to give Wright the money. The two men then left the apartment, got into a white Cadillac, and left the scene without the money. The woman later identified Wright and Driver via photo line-ups.

Wright was arrested and later released on $100,000 bail. As a condition of his release, he was not to have contact with the victim or witnesses, had to refrain from drugs and alcohol, and could not possess a firearm.

Wright’s bail was reportedly revoked in July because he allegedly possessed a firearm and was not keeping in touch with his probation officer, according to The Daily Mail, which was the first outlet to report on the aggravate robbery attempt.

The case was still pending when Wright was pulled over Sunday for having an expired license plate. Police then tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant after failing to appear in court on charges that he fled from officers and possessed a gun without a permit during an encounter with Minneapolis police in June.

So, this is the “Role Model for American ‘Yutes'” that has inspired BLM-organized riots and demonstrations across the country.

Yes, it was a horrible, tragic mistake on the part of Officer Potter and she will pay for it.

However, those who are demonstrating and rioting are not making things better by doing so.

They are harming their fellow citizens and are deepening the racial division which the Democratic Party has purposefully worked to widen since Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) became the 44th President of the United States of America.

This have gotten so STUPID that the Black Mayor of the Minneapolis Suburb where the shooting took place has come out and said that the police should not be wearing weapons when they perform a routine traffic stop.

Really, Mr. Mayor??!!

Do you want them to wear uniforms with targets painted on their chests, too?

Dear Lord.

Americans are witnessing a replay of the Russian Revolution with BLM, Antifa, and the rest of the rioters playing the part of the Bolsheviks, otherwise known as “Useful Idiots”.

To “radically change” a country, first you have to whip up its citizens into such a frenzy that they no longer think for themselves.

Rather, they act in unison as a crowd, focusing and acting on the “shared indignation” which brings them together.

Once they are united in a cause, they are more easily manipulated to proceed with the process of “radically changing” the country into what those who are manipulating them want it to be.

In the case of the Russian Revolution, the manipulator of the masses was the Marxist, Vladimir Lenin.

In the case of the rioters, it is the group known as Black Lives Matter, whose leader is a self-proclaimed Marxist, who has become rich from the labor of her “New Bolsheviks”.

So, why aren’t the Biden-Harris Administration and the rest of the Democrat Elite trying to stop the rioting, like President Trump tried to?

Simple.

In order to make an omelet, you have to break a few eggs.

And, in order to change America into a Democratic Socialist country, you have to overthrow our present society, which is kept safe by “The Thin Blue Line”, and replace those protecting us with “Useful Idiots”.

Thus endeth the lesson.

God help us.

First, They Came for President Trump…

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is trump-looking-out-window-oval-office-2-1.jpg

TheNationalPulse.com reports that

The President of the United States has been removed from social media site Twitter after Democrats falsely accused the President and his supporters of attempting a coup in the United States.

Following increasingly totalitarian moves and speech from Democrats, the media, and Big Tech platforms, the company controlled by Jack Dorsey and linked with the Chinese Communist Party has removed the duly elected, sitting President of the United States.

The disturbingly Orwellian move comes as tens of thousands of conservative accounts were removed from Twitter over the past few days.

President Trump had been urged by his supporters to act against Big Tech tyranny for years, but the White House never viewed it as a priority, nor did most Republicans on Capitol Hill.

Many people argue that without his Twitter account, Trump would not have been able to initially get around mainstream media bans and blackouts of his original 2015/6 campaign.

The President was also removed from Facebook a few days ago.

Section 230 of the Security Communications Act states that

“No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider” (47 U.S.C. § 230)

What this means is that any online service which publishes third party content is protected against a range of laws that might otherwise be used to hold them legally responsible for what others say and do.

The problem is, as was exhibited yesterday, these entities can also be used as a way to limit free speech, if that speech damages the political party which the ownership supports.

There has been shadow banning of Conservatives happening on Twitter for quite some time.

For example, actor James Woods, a noted Conservative possessing a razor-sharp wit, was banned for several months from Twitter.

Other Conservatives have had thousands of followers mysteriously vanish with no logical explanation, a practice which was happening all over the place yesterday..

And, as President Trump once alluded to, Twitter was definitely Pro-Hillary during the 2016 Campaign.

What gets me, is while the President HAD a Twitter Feed, “Bots” and wild-eyed vulgar Liberals were allowed to spam Trump’s Twitter feed, making it almost impossible for average Americans to comment on it.

Why, it was almost like these clowns were getting paid to damage the President. (/sarc)

President Trump was a master of using Twitter to reach out directly to the American people to get his point across unfiltered by the biased Main Stream Media.

He also took delight in “trolling” the Main Stream Media and their masters, the Democratic Party, through its use.

America received daily communication from its 45th President, Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump.

The vast majority of Americans own cellphones…and have been on Twitter.

That is liable to change.

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals, such as the Democrat Politicians on Capitol Hill and Jack Dorsey and his minions at Twitter, as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values and their lack of respect for our Constitution and our American System of Law and Order.

What we are seeing now, as regards the  Rigged Election and the inaction by Congress in response to it and now, the silencing of Conservative voices in Social Media is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base leading to a push toward changing America into a Marxist Nation.

Hate, envy, and control are the “pillars of faith” in Marxism in all of its forms, fascism, and, of course, Islam.

All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism which has now grown so radical as to reach the Biblical Book of Revelation levels.

f this effort by the “New Bolsheviks” is allowed to go unchecked, it will not be our Brightest and Best who will die on this field of battle, but rather, it will be our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which will die ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of the “New Fascism”, going under the non de plumes of “socialism” and “political correctness”.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

All of this unethical political behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Just as my Daddy did when he landed on Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944 with thousands of other brave young American men, we must look this “New Fascism” straight in the face and say, “NO MORE!”

BLM “Trained Marxist” Co-founder to Biden: “We Want to be Heard and Our Agenda to be Prioritized”

Newsmax.com reports that

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors in a letter to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Black people ”want something for our vote.”

”We want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized,” Cullors wrote to Biden and running mate Kamala Harris on Saturday, according to Fox News.

“Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome. In short, Black people won this election.”

Cullors also requested a meeting with Biden, who was announced the winner of the 2020 presidential election by several news outlets.

Newsmax TV has yet to call the race and President Donald Trump, citing voter fraud, refuses to concede.

Biden, in an acceptance speech Saturday, thanked Black voters for their support.

”The African American community stood up again for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours,” Biden said at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. ”I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that. Now that’s what I want the administration to look like.”

Cullors also reminded Biden and Harris that they both “expressed regrets regarding your record on issues impacting Black people,” and advised them to “take your direction from Black grassroots organizers that have been engaged in this work for decades, with a legacy that spans back to the first arrival of enslaved Africans.”

“We would like to be actively engaged in your Transition Team’s planning and policy work,” Cullors said. “Let’s get to work!”

If Biden officially supports BLM and Patrisse Cullors, he is hopping in bed with communists.

According to an article on Breitbart.com

The co-founder of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, Patrisse Cullors, was the protégé of a communist-supporting domestic terrorist for over a decade, spending years training in political organizing and absorbing the radical Marxist-Leninist ideology which shaped her worldview.

Eric Mann, who mentored Cullors for over a decade in community organizing, was a member of radical-left militant groups: Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground, which bombed government buildings and police stations in the 1960s and 1970s.

In a newly resurfaced video from 2015, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors reveals that she and her fellow BLM founders are “trained Marxists.”

In the video, Cullors is interviewed by Jared Ball of the Real News Network and discusses the direction of the BLM movement.

“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said. “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.”

In previous interviews in 2018, while promoting her then-new book titled, “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir,” Cullors describes her introduction to and affinity for Marxist ideology.

In an interview with Democracy Now!, Cullors describes how she became a trained organizer with the Labor/Community Strategy Center, calling it her “first political home” and the center’s director, Eric Mann, her personal mentor.

She told The Politic that it was there that she was trained from her youth and grew as a leader.

BLM believes in destroying the traditional American Nuclear Family. The proof can be found on their official website, BlackLivesMatter.com

We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.

We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.

We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.

We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.

We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).

We cultivate an intergenerational and communal network free from ageism. We believe that all people, regardless of age, show up with the capacity to lead and learn.

We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.

On May 5, 2015, Black Economist and Conservative Pundit, Dr. Thomas Sowell, published the following observation in an op ed about racial division…

You cannot take any people, of any color, and exempt them from the requirements of civilization — including work, behavioral standards, personal responsibility and all the other basic things that the clever intelligentsia disdain — without ruinous consequences to them and to society at large.

Non-judgmental subsidies of counterproductive lifestyles are treating people as if they were livestock, to be fed and tended by others in a welfare state — and yet expecting them to develop as human beings have developed when facing the challenges of life themselves.

One key fact that keeps getting ignored is that the poverty rate among black married couples has been in single digits every year since 1994. Behavior matters and facts matter, more than the prevailing social visions or political empires built on those visions. [Emphasis mine.]

If the Democrat Elite, like Sleepy Joe Biden and “Heels Up” Kamala Harris, along with those who are still rioting in our major cities, and all other Modern American Liberals, both black and white, Democrat and Republican, in Municipal, State, and National Leadership Positions, would focus their angst and “concern” on the society-altering, continuing dissolution of the Black Family Unit and work instead toward the restoration of the Black Family Unit, instead of attempting to blame our city’s police officers and average Americans for the violence in our streets, perhaps the stifling defeatism of the cycle of Generational Poverty and Crime, and the violence it brings, would eventually be a thing of the past, or greatly diminished, anyway.

Then, I wouldn’t be awakened every morning, by the Local News in Memphis, to stories about Black Americans killing each other, or mobs of Black Teenagers beating up innocent people.

And American Families could actually go to events in Democrat-run American Cities without being afraid of being robbed, beaten, raped, or killed..

BLM Invade DC Restaurants, Bully Diners Into Raising Their Fists in “Solidarity”…It is Time For Americans to Take a Stand

dc-restaurant-blm

Breitbart.com reports that

Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington, DC, on Monday harassed diners seated on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and allegedly demanded they raise their fists, according to videos posted on social media.

The protester can be heard screaming at the couple, “Is that why you don’t want to do it?”

Two other diners are seen with their fists raised.

Cowbells and shouting can also be heard, as the crowd heckled the couple. One protester yelled, “White supremacy!” at the couple.

A staff member at the restaurant confirmed on Tuesday that about 200 protesters came to their restaurant on 14th Street the day before.

The incident was a part of a protest in D.C. in support of Jacob Blake, a black man in Wisconsin who scuffled with police before he was seen reaching into his car and then fired upon by police. He is reportedly in stable condition.

The shooting, however, has fueled already ongoing protests around the country by BLM and other associated groups.

Protesters in recent weeks have been increasingly targeting restaurant-goers, who now with COVID-19 restrictions, are sitting on patios accessible from the sidewalk.

Over the weekend, BLM protesters targeted Washington diners in other parts of Northwest DC, with one case leading to a physical confrontation.

Metropolitan police arrived shortly after the confrontation, and followed the protesters as they moved on to other restaurants.

Protesters also targeted diners in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Republican National Convention is being held this week.

For the last several months, Americans have witnessed a bunch of ungrateful snot-nosed brats attempt to erase American History, while Democrat state and municipal leaders continue to do nothing to stop them. The anger and frustration of millions of patriotic Americans has reached its zenith as we approached the 2020  Democratic National Convention.

Americans sat watching their TVs, waiting for Joe Biden to say something…anything about what he was going to do about the Anarchists who are attacking our major cities and are no attempting to force Americans to raised their clenched fists in support of their Marxist political ideology.

Biden and the rest of the Democrats said nothing at all about the violent protests going on in Democratically-controlled cities.

The Main Stream Media, which now, to some degree, includes the Fox News Channel, have exaggerated the size and strength of the Antifa and BLM, the two Far Left entities bent on radically changing America into something that it was never meant to be.

Actually, those snot-nosed wannabe anarchists are a minority.

Just as we have bore witness to the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments which actually started during he Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit and a generation which never took the time to actually be parents to their children, leaving that up to the schools, which indoctrinated them to hate America and what we stand for.

The Marxist Leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, said,

“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

That’s right. This is what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

They become indoctrinated to believe that Marxism is good.

Americans desperately need to stand up as a united people in order to stop Antifa and BLM from turning our Constitutional Republican into an anarchistic Marxist nation.

I believe that we are seeing a message of hope for the future during the Republican National Convention.

The Silent Majority is alive and well and, buoyed by President Trump’s inspiring speeches, are ready to defend the America we know and love.

Our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, their fortune, and their sacred honor to fight for our American Freedom against the strongest empire in the known world at that time.

It is up to us, as Americans, to take a stand against this present day “tyranny of the minority”, in order to, once again, preserve our American Freedom for future generations.

Antifa, BLM, and the rest of the “useful idiots” need to return to their parents’ basements.

We reject their Marxism and we cherish our American Heritage.

A heritage which they have no right to destroy.

I am voting for President Trump.

Who’s with me?

Until He Comes,

“New Bolsheviks” of Antifa and BLM Riot in Seattle, Break Into Amazon Go…Why This is Happening Now

Seattle Riot 71920

FoxNews.com reports that

At least two people were arrested in Seattle and a police officer is in the hospital Sunday after a march through downtown devolved into property damage and looting, police say.

Police said Sunday evening the demonstrators had broken out several windows of the East Precinct, then threw a device into the lobby that ignited a small fire.

The fire was later extinguished and no injuries were reported, police said.

The demonstration started between 2 and 3 p.m. near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Pine Street. A photo posted on Seattle’s DOT traffic channel showed crowds blocking an intersection.

Around 2:30 p.m., Seattle journalist Katie Daviscourt tweeted a video of a crowd of people outside an Amazon Go building. Several people were seen spray-painting the building while others tried to smash the windows.

“Antifa Militants and Black Lives Matter rioters are breaking into Amazon Go Downtown Seattle,” Daviscourt tweeted. “This protest has turned into a riot.”

Seattle police tweeted shortly before 5 p.m. that the crowd had continued to march on Pike Street from downtown and two people had been arrested outside of the West Precinct.

Police said demonstrators had thrown rocks, bottles, and other items at officers and at least one officer had been transported to the hospital.

A video clip posted on Twitter by Elizabeth Turnball shows the smashed doors to a Walgreens on Pine before Broadway.

Seattle police were working to block off the entrance to Interstate 5 so protesters could not enter, Seattle’s KING-TV reported.

Police said demonstrators had gone from Westlake Park to the Municipal Courthouse and then headed back north to the West precinct “leaving behind a trail of property destruction.”

“These are criminal acts, not peaceful protests,” police said.

The demonstration came amid ongoing police protests nationwide sparked by the police custody of George Floyd, a Black Minneapolis man, in late May.

Seattle drew national attention after activists set up an “occupied” zone dubbed “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest,” or CHOP, that occupied several blocks around a park for about two weeks after police abandoned a precinct station following standoffs and clashes. They later changed its name to the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” or CHAZ. Seattle’s mayor ordered the zone cleared after two deadly shootings.

And, apparently, a fat lot of good that did.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, tearing up America’s major cities, as Far Left Democrat mayors and Governors cheer them on, all the while isolating average Americans in their homes as a “weapon” against a coronavirus which is being over-reported by America’s health providers.

And, while we are being isolated and bossed around, race-baiting  Marxist Political Activists continue to riot while telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again” through the reelection of Donald J. Trump to the office of the President of the United States of America.

I have heard this kind of garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as the members of Antifa and BLM, who are garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful, violent, and yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have bore witness to the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments which actually started during he Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit and a generation which never took the time to actually be parents to their children, leaving that up to the schools, which indoctrinated them to hate America and what we stand for.

That’s right. This is what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats” who continue to riot in out streets, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we saw play out preciously, both during the Obama Administration and also when paid and unpaid protesters attempted to stop the Nomination and Installation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court.

These New Bolsheviks are also attempting to somehow halt the fulfilling of President Trump’s Campaign Promises in order to stop another Trump-engineered comeback of America in order to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

If you have ever attempted to debate one of these “New Bolsheviks” on a Facebook Political Page or a Political Website, they always attempt to present their opinions as facts, with nothing by Political Rhetoric to back them up.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” by the Democratic Leadership, while promising to somehow restore Barack Hussein Obama’s “share the wealth” failed Domestic Policy, has also inspired these self-absorbed brats to act like the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, in an attempt to create a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression” for the sole purpose, as Senator Lindsey Graham pointed out in the Kavanaugh Hearings, to gain back their political power.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny and the danger of mob rule.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protesters of the Presidency of Donald  J. Trump that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by attempting to destroy a good man through lies and innuendos or by strong-arming and harassing those who refuse to believe the way they do through the means of riots and violence, for the expressed purpose of denying others their First Amendment Rights.

Our Constitution, in fact, allowed then-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to call all of us who believe in Traditional American Values and the preservation of American as the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth “Deplorables”.

However, that same Constitution, which Americans have fought and died for to preserve, also gives me the right to label these brats whom the Democrat Elite refer to as “peaceful protesters” as what they really are

NEW BOLSHEVIKS ATTEMPTING AN AMERICAN MARXIST REVOLUTION.

BLM Rioters Try to Destroy Andrew Jackson Statue in Park Across From White House, Spray St. John Church With “BHAZ”, Some Arrested

andrew-jackson-statue

Breitbart.com reports that

Rioters attempted to topple a statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Park near the White House on Monday evening in Washington, DC, before being dispersed by police.

The statue depicts Jackson in uniform astride a horse at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, one of the most important battles of the War of 1812.

In the battle, American defenders under Jackson’s command routed British invaders. Though the battle technically took place after the war had ended — thanks to the slow communications of the era — it firmly established American military prowess and played a role in burnishing Jackson’s credentials as a military leader.

On Monday, demonstrators broke through a fence around the statue and placed ropes around the statue, which they attempted to tear down.

They shouted: “This is what democracy looks like!”; “No justice, no peace!”; and “Hands up, don’t shoot!”

The latter is a reference to the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. Brown was killed while charging a police officer whose gun he had attempted to take, but activists claimed falsely that he had been shot in the back with his hands raised in surrender. The event launched the Black Lives Matter movement.

U.S. Park Police deployed pepper spray to disperse the crowd. Some of the rioters appeared armed.

Some of the rioters wore white helmets with red crosses and administered first aid to those who had been sprayed.

Nearby, the St. John’s Episcopal Church, damaged in a fire set by rioters on May 31, was vandalized:

On June 1, President Trump walked through Lafayette Square after it had been cleared of protesters and stood in front of the damaged church, holding a Bible aloft.

Mayor Muriel Bowser subsequently declared the plaza in front of the park Black Lives Matter Plaza, and allowed protesters to paint “BLACK LIVES MATTER” on the street. Some later added “DEFUND THE POLICE.”

Separately, police removed tents near Black Lives Matter that were set up Monday as an attempt to establish a “Black House Autonomous Zone,” or “BHAZ,” named after the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) in Seattle.

The CHAZ is now known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP).

After the crowd was dispersed, President Trump tweeted…

Good. It is time to get serious with these “useful idiots”.

If you are one of those, like the “foot soldiers” of Antifa and BLM, who believe that this is somehow about “overthrowing an evil, fascist, racist government”…you need to find out whose cause you are actually working for.

Because, it sure isn’t the side of “justice”.

On Sunday, Townhall.com reported that

One of BLM’s co-founders, Patrisse Cullors, admitted that the group is lead by trained Marxists who have the ultimate goal of ousting President Trump from office. 

“I think that the criticism is helpful. I think the first thing is we do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers,” she explained during an interview with The Real News Now. “We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.”

On June 11, Breitbart.com posted the following list of organizations funding Black Lives Matter.

Airbnb – $500,000 to BLM and the NAACP
Anastasia Beverly Hills fashions – $1 million pledged, $100,000 donated so far to groups including BLM
Bad Robot Productions – film studio involved in Star Trek, Star Wars, and Mission Impossible, $10 million pledged to “anti-racist” groups. BLM among the first recipients
BTS, a Korean pop group – $1 million, matching donations from fans
Cisco, electronics giant – $5 million to groups including BLM and its own Fighting Racism and Discrimination fund
DECIEM cosmetics – $100,000 to NAACP and BLM  
Democracy Alliance – another Soros-linked group, added BLM to its annual $500 million donor list
Door Dash – food delivery company, $500,000
Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy – Left-wing groups that established a $100 million donor fund
George Soros’ Open Society Foundation – $33 million
Glossier cosmetics – $500,000
Pokemon Company – owners of the popular card game and its characters, $100,000
Scopely – mobile phone game developer, $1 million to BLM, NAACP, and Equal Justice Initiative
Spanx – undergarment manufacturer, $100,000 to groups including BLM
Square Enix computer games – $250,000 to BLM, also matching employee donations
Ubisoft computer games – $100,000 to NAACP and BLM
The Weeknd – Canadian R&B singer, $250,000

Guess who BLM’s biggest “Money Man” is?

That’s right, the “Puppet Master” himself, George Soros.

George Soros has financed “protestors” for years now, going as far as trying to infiltrate Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump’s Campaign Rallies before he 2016 Presidential Election.

His deep involvement in the Ferguson Riots, along with his funding of Back Lives Matter and Antifa Groups like Refuse Fascism reveals a pattern of behavior which makes him the likely money behind the “spontaneous” protests which have erupted in cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles and, like last night, across the street from the White House.

In my opinion, it is time to freeze the assets of George Soros and to deport him from our Sovereign Nation which he seeks to “radically change”…

…while we still have a Constitutional Republic left.

Democratic Party Civil War: Pelosi Vs. the Four Horsewomen of the Democrat Apocalypse

pelosi-shuts-down-questions-on-feud-with-alexandria-ocasio-cortez

A funny thing happened on the way to Pelosi’s “benevolent dictatorship” in the House of Representatives.

Pelosi is now finding herself and all of the “Old Guard” House Dems being pushed out of political power by 4 first year Congresswomen, anti-Semitic Marxists who have quite literally “come out of nowhere” to take all the air out of the House of Representatives.

And, the “Iron Lady” of the House can not seem to do anything about it.

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slamming her “inappropriate” suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshman because of their race.

Speaking to Fox News on Thursday nice, Clay hammered Ocasio-Cortez’s suggestion.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said.

“It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.

“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi.”

Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators”.

“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members. They will have to learn to be effective legislators,” he said.

“It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion.”

The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.

“It shows they have no sensibility to different members from our caucus. Some come from red districts and those are the ones who gave us the majority. We need them all,” he said.

His comments followed a feud between Pelosi and freshman congresswomen, like Ocasio-Cortez, that involved racially-charged criticism.

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, previously compared moderate Democrats to racists — prompting Pelosi, at the request of some of her members, to warn House Democrats not to attack each other on Twitter.

“You got a complaint?  You come and talk to me about it.  But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok,” she reportedly said. On the same day of that caucus meeting, Ocasio-Cortez called out Pelosi for what she sees as the speaker continually targeting her and other freshmen lawmakers of color.

“Their ignorance is beyond belief,” Clay also said while in the Speaker’s Lobby, according to The Hill.

Clay wasn’t the only one to attack Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday. “The View” hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg criticized her’s and others’ decision to attack Democrats like Pelosi. “I think this is more BS,” Goldberg said of Ocasio-Cortez’s comments on race.

Pelosi, meanwhile, refused to provide further comment on the feud while discussing it during her weekly press briefing.

“I’ve said what I’m going to say…What I said in the caucus yesterday had an overwhelming response from my members,” she said.

“Because they know what the facts are and what we are responding to. We respect the value of every member of our caucus. The diversity of it all is a wonderful thing. Diversity is our strength. Unity is our power.”

Are the rest of the “Moderate Democrats” all bound and gagged and being kept in a bunker somewhere?

Let’s face it, gentle readers.

Methinks San Fran Nan Pelosi doth protest too much.

It is obvious to the entire Free World that Marxism is being fully embraced by the Far Left Democratic Party in the name of “Democratic Socialism”. “Political compromise” took the last plane out of town a long time ago.

Did you know that there is an actual organization named the Democratic Socialists of America?

In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…

“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”
 

Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?

Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?

One hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on that very idea.

The unworkable theory that “Democratic Socialism” is based on is known as Marxism.

No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who have been doing every thing they can to disrupt and interfere with the success of President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

And, just like the Czar and the rest of the Russian Leadership back in 1918, Pelosi and the Old Guard of the Democratic Party are so impotent as a result of living off of their decades of political greed and piracy, that the energetic impudence of these “New Bolsheviks” has taken them completely by surprise.

These new “useful idiots” like the Democrats’ “Four Horsewomen of the Democrat Apocalypse” are so “out there” that they have the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared, allowing them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for not only the present but the 2020 Presidential Elections as well.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they have become that which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they have not become just any kind of fascists. They have become Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution are to be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

As I have written before, America is involved in an internal struggle, a much bigger “Civil War”, if you will, for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

However, like the Marxists who have declared “war” on America and her citizens before, this new generation of “useful idiots” will find it very hard to win the hearts of average Americans.

For you see, we know Who gave us this country. America was built on a Solid Rock.

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. – Matthew 7:24-25

And, as I have written previously, the “Democratic Socialists” don’t even know which restroom to use.

Until He Comes,

Trump Signs Bibles in ‘Bama, Libs Freak Out…Do They Know That Church Services Used to Be Held in the Capitol Building?

trumpbible2.jpg.hashed.7bd49482.desktop.story.share

Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face. -President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

President Donald Trump was just doing what he could to raise spirits when he signed Bibles at an Alabama church for survivors of a deadly tornado outbreak, many religious leaders say, though some are offended and others say he could have handled it differently.

Hershael York, dean of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary School of Theology in Louisville, Ky., said he didn’t have a problem with Trump signing Bibles, like former presidents have, because he was asked and because it was important to the people who were asking.

“Though we don’t have a national faith, there is faith in our nation, and so it’s not at all surprising that people would have politicians sign their Bibles,” he said. “Those Bibles are meaningful to them and apparently these politicians are, too.”

But the Rev. Donnie Anderson, executive minister of the Rhode Island State Council of Churches, said she was offended by the way Trump scrawled his signature Friday as he autographed Bibles and other things, including hats, and posed for photos. She viewed it, she said, as a “calculated political move” by the Republican president to court his evangelical voting base.

Presidents have a long history of signing Bibles, though earlier presidents typically signed them as gifts to send with a spiritual message. President Ronald Reagan signed a Bible that was sent secretly to Iranian officials in 1986. President Franklin Roosevelt signed the family Bible his attorney general used to take the oath of office in 1939.

It would have been different, Anderson said, if Trump had signed a Bible out of the limelight for someone with whom he had a close connection.

“For me, the Bible is a very important part of my faith, and I don’t think it should be used as a political ploy,” she said. “I saw it being used just as something out there to symbolize his support for the evangelical community, and it shouldn’t be used in that way. People should have more respect for Scripture.”

York said that he, personally, would not ask a politician to sign a Bible, but that he has been asked to sign Bibles after he preaches. It feels awkward, he said, but he doesn’t refuse.

“If it’s meaningful to them to have signatures in their Bible, I’m willing to do that,” he said.

Trump visited Alabama on Friday to survey the devastation and pay respects to tornado victims. The tornado carved a path of destruction nearly a mile wide, killing 23 people, including four children and a couple in their 80s, with 10 victims belonging to a single extended family.

At the Providence Baptist Church in Smiths Station, Ala., the Rev. Rusty Sowell said, the president’s visit was uplifting and will help bring attention to a community that will need a long time to recover.

Before leaving the church, Trump posed for a photograph with a fifth-grade volunteer and signed the child’s Bible, said Ada Ingram, a local volunteer. The president also signed her sister’s Bible, Ingram said. In photos from the visit, Trump is shown signing the cover of a Bible.

Trump should have at least signed inside in a less ostentatious way, said the Rev. Dr. Kevin Cassiday-Maloney.

“It just felt like hubris,” said Cassiday-Maloney, pastor at the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Fargo, North Dakota. “It almost felt like a desecration of the holy book to put his signature on the front writ large, literally.”

He doesn’t think politicians should sign Bibles, he said, because it could be seen as a blurring of church and state and an endorsement of Christianity over other religions.

It would have been out of line if Trump had brought Bibles and given them out, but that wasn’t the case, said James Coffin, executive director of the Interfaith Council of Central Florida.

“Too much is being made out of something that doesn’t deserve that kind of attention,” he said.

Bill Leonard, the founding dean and professor of divinity emeritus at the Wake Forest University School of Divinity in Winston-Salem, N.C., woke up to Facebook posts Saturday morning by former students who were upset about Trump signing the Bibles because they don’t view him as an appropriate example of spiritual guidance.

But, Leonard said, it’s important to remember that signing Bibles is an old tradition, particularly in southern churches.

Leonard said he would have viewed it as more problematic if the signings were done at a political rally. He doesn’t see how Trump could have refused at the church.

“It would’ve been worse if he had said no because it would’ve seemed unkind, and this was at least one way he could show his concern along with his visit,” he said. “In this setting, where tragedy has occurred and where he comes for this brief visit, we need to have some grace about that for these folks.”

Amen.

Gentle Readers, did you notice in the above article that those who objected were representatives of Liberal Churches?

First,, there is NO SUCH THING as “Separation of Church and State” in the Constitution of the United States of America.

Second, President Trump was honoring God by signing children’s Bibles in that small Alabama town.

Christianity has played a predominant role in the building of our nation.  In fact, the Capitol building itself was used for church services, even before Congress moved into the building, and continued to be used for Sunday Church Services until well after the Civil War.

The approval of the Capitol for church was given by both the House and the Senate on December 4, 1800, with House approval being given by Speaker of the House, Theodore Sedgwick, and Senate approval being given by the President of the Senate, Thomas Jefferson, whose approval came while he was still officially the Vice- President but after he had just been elected President.

According to David Barton at wallbuilders.com:

Jefferson attended church at the Capitol while he was Vice President 5 and also throughout his presidency. The first Capitol church service that Jefferson attended as President was a service preached by Jefferson’s friend, the Rev. John Leland, on January 3, 1802. 6 Significantly, Jefferson attended that Capitol church service just two days after he penned his famous letter containing the “wall of separation between church and state” metaphor.

U. S. Rep. Manasseh Cutler, who also attended church at the Capitol, recorded in his own diary that “He [Jefferson] and his family have constantly attended public worship in the Hall.” Mary Bayard Smith, another attendee at the Capitol services, confirmed: “Mr. Jefferson, during his whole administration, was a most regular attendant.” She noted that Jefferson even had a designated seat at the Capitol church: “The seat he chose the first Sabbath, and the adjoining one (which his private secretary occupied), were ever afterwards by the courtesy of the congregation, left for him and his secretary.” Jefferson was so committed to those services that he would not even allow inclement weather to dissuade him; as Rep. Cutler noted: “It was very rainy, but his [Jefferson’s] ardent zeal brought him through the rain and on horseback to the Hall.” Other diary entries confirm Jefferson’s attendance in spite of bad weather.

…Jefferson was not the only President to attend church at the Capitol. His successor, James Madison, also attended church at the Capitol. 14 However, there was a difference in the way the two arrived for services. Observers noted that Jefferson arrived at church on horseback 15 (it was 1.6 miles from the White House to the Capitol). However, Madison arrived for church in a coach and four. In fact, British diplomat Augustus Foster, who attended services at the Capitol, gave an eloquent description of President Madison arriving at the Capitol for church in a carriage drawn by four white horses.

The series of cacophonous thuds you just heard were the “I’m-smarter than-you” Modern American Marxists…err…Liberals falling off of their chairs.  You see, they will argue until they are blue in the face that Jefferson and Madison were not Christians, and our founding documents were not based on a Judeo-Christian system of beliefs.

Then, they go out to feed the unicorn in their backyard.

Jefferson told his friend, William Bradford (who served as Attorney General under President Washington), to make sure of his own spiritual salvation:

[A] watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest, while we are building ideal monuments of renown and bliss here, we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven.

Concerning Christianity, Jefferson said:

The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of man.

The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.

I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others.

I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

But, what about Jefferson’s re-writing of the Bible, leaving out Jesus’ miracles, you ask? David Barton answered that question in 2001, in a letter to a newspaper, in response to a reader:

The reader, 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.

The other Founding Father whom today’s Liberals claim was an Atheist is James Madison.

Per David Barton:

James Madison trained for ministry with the Rev. Dr. John Witherspoon, and Madison’s writings are replete with declarations of his faith in God and in Christ. In fact, for proof of this, one only need read his letter to Attorney General Bradford wherein Madison laments that public officials are not bold enough about their Christian faith in public and that public officials should be “fervent advocates in the cause of Christ.” And while Madison did allude to a “wall of separation,” contemporary writers frequently refuse to allow Madison to provide his own definition of that “wall.” According to Madison, the purpose of that “wall” was only to prevent Congress from passing a national law to establish a national religion.

Also, as this writing shows, Madison wanted all public officials – including Bradford – to be unashamed concerning their Christian beliefs and testimony:

I have sometimes thought there could not be a stronger testimony in favor of religion or against temporal enjoyments, even the most rational and manly, than for men who occupy the most honorable and gainful departments and [who] are rising in reputation and wealth, publicly to declare their unsatisfactoriness by becoming fervent advocates in the cause of Christ; and I wish you may give in your evidence in this way.

Did you know that Madison was a member of the committee that authored the 1776 Virginia Bill of Rights and approved of its clause declaring that:

It is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity toward each other.  ?

And, per Barton, Madison’s proposed wording for the First Amendment demonstrates that he opposed only the establishment of a federal denomination, not public religious activities.  The proposal reads:

The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established.

But, wait.  There’s more:

In 1789, Madison served on the Congressional committee which authorized, approved, and selected paid Congressional chaplains.

In 1812, President Madison signed a federal bill which economically aided a Bible Society in its goal of the mass distribution of the Bible.

Finally, throughout his Presidency (1809-1816), Madison endorsed public and official religious expressions by issuing several proclamations for national days of prayer, fasting, and thanksgiving.

So, if you run into one of those individuals who, when it comes to accepting the Faith of our Founding Fathers and that fact that President Trump was doing exactly what those noble men would have done in that same situation in that church in Alabama, proves that denial is not just a river in Egypt, you can respond with one or all of three things:

1.  Quote from this article.

2.  Give him/her this link to wallbuilders.com.

3.  Show them this excellent video, in which David Barton conducts a historical tour of the Capitol Building.

My 1,500th Blog: To God Be the Glory. To Liberals, the Shame

Christian America Fish LogoI began writing my own Blog in April of 2010, after being a contributor on other Conservative Blogs and Facebook Pages.

I started writing as a way to share my Faith, my love for my country, and to vent ( because after all, punching holes in the wall is expensive…and painful).

Every now and then, I am asked what I believe.  So, on the occasion of this milestone, I’m asking you to gather ’round ol’ Uncle KJ, boys and girls, as I lay it on the line, and write from my heart…as usual.

FIRST THINGS FIRST…

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;*
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead… – The Apostles Creed

I believe that there is no way to the Father, except through His Son, and the most important possession you can have in this life, is a Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ, Our Savior and Our Redeemer.

Grace, Forgiveness, and Redemption are available to everyone. However, it is up to you to ask for them.

I BELIEVE THAT AMERICA IS  STILL THAT “SHINING CITY ON A HILL”.

When our Founding Fathers made their treacherous journey to an unknown land full of danger, they sacrificed their homes, their wealth, and their prestige, in order to be able to worship God in the way they chose.

And, when the King of England decided to tax these brave men and women, who had sacrificed all to build a better life for themselves, in a punitive and unbearable manner, to the point of poverty, they decided that it was time to fight this tyranny, no matter what the cost.

So, to each other, they pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their Sacred Honor”.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…

And, thus began the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.

Yes, there have been mistakes made. Yes, there have been “growing pains”.  However, what makes the difference between us and other countries, is the fact that we remain a nation of exceptional people.

What is it that makes Americans exceptional? Is it simply a matter of the blessing of an American Birth?

No, if that were the case, you could consider the Communist Slackers of the OWS movement or other self-centered Mom’s Basement Dwellers, “exceptional”.  No, it’s way more than the privilege of being born a nephew of our Uncle Sam.

What has separated our nation from all others is THE AMERICAN SPIRIT…a spirit comprised of FAITH, COURAGE, SACRIFICE, CHARITY, AND INGENUITY.

While others have RUN AWAY, Americans have always RUN TO.

Why is that?

As my Brother-in-Christ Johnny McDonald once wrote, “Liberty is Freedom…with Responsibility”.

Ronald Reagan said,

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Was Ronaldus Magnus speaking about our Freedom as a nation? Or, the freedom of the individual?

The answer is “Yes. Both.”

President Reagan knew how fragile this precious thing called Freedom is. So did Dr. Benjamin Franklin.

Dr. Franklin, along with our other Founding Fathers, pledged his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor in pursuit of it.

When he made that now-famous quote to Mrs. Powel, he was expressing his worry that seceding generations, having attained their freedom so easily, might grow lackadaisical and so spoiled by it, that they would squander it through self-indulgence. Franklin was, in fact, so leery of losing this new republic, that he said,

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

He was afraid that Americans would rely and trust those in power over them to the extent that they would surrender their freedom to them.

And, that brings me to my third belief:

I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF THE INDIVIDUAL.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Phillippians 14:3 – NKJV

Our American Freedom allows us to be whatever we want to be, in this life. All it takes it perspiration, strength of will, and God’s Blessings.

And, that is why Liberalism/Progressiveness/Marxism fails.

Like any tyranny, they sublimate the power of the individual for the good (i.e., avarice and political ambitions) of the Collective (mindless sheep, kept in economic and ideological slavery, by an all-powerful Central Government).

The strength and vitality of America does not come from the benevolence of a Nanny-state Federal Government.

As the greatest American President of our lifetime, Ronald Reagan said:

The nine words you never want to hear are:  I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Being enslaved to the Government Dole steals one’s ambition.  It takes away any impetus or desire to create a better life for yourself and your family, to challenge yourself to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and pursue the American Dream.  It makes you reliant on a politically-motivated spider’s web full of government bureaucrats who view you and your family as job security.

While working at the County Jobs Center, I watched American citizens trapped in this web of government bureaucracy,  so numbed of any initiative that they once had, that they seemed offended that they actually had to prove that they inquired about three jobs that week in order to keep their “benefits”.  Others seemed puzzled that they had to search through the state data base and pick out a job that they wanted to talk to an interviewer about receiving a referral to, and weren’t just simply handed a job when they walked through the door.

Reliance on an out-of-control, ever-expanding Central Government, who controls every moment of a citizen’s everyday life, limits the potential of the individual.

And, for that reason, especially, Liberals should be ashamed.

I look at my own life, and I thank God that I was blessed by Him to be born an American.

If you would have told me as a child/teenager, during one of the many times that I was laying under an Oxygen Tent in St. Joseph Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, that God would give me the opportunity to sing to His Glory for 30 years, from Centenary United Methodist Church on McLemore Avenue in Downtown Memphis to a Baptist Church in Stratford-on-Avon, England, in between wheezing, I would have told you that you were a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal.

If you would have told me that, in my professional life, I would have had the to work with Americans from all walks of life, from the Surgeon General of the United States, to world-renowned physicians, to cotton farmers on the Mississippi Delta, I would have said, “Who…me?”

And, if you would have told me that I would write 1,500 Blogs, which have been read by people in countries all over the world, and that something I wrote would be read daily via e-mail by approximately 300 Americans , including United States Senators and Congresspeople, I would have told you, “NO WAY!”.

However, Gentle Readers,

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

May God Bless each and every one of you.

Until He Comes,
