SOCIALISM IS MOB RULE

http://americanvision.org/3720/socialism-is-mob-violence/

Read the entire article--here are just two paragraphs

The lusts of the mob manifest the depravity of man: rebellion against maturity, responsibility and honesty. The curse of the fall—the thorns and sweat—are, consciously or not, assumed to be overcome not through godly ethics, but through political policy. That is, through man’s legislative fiat, not God’s—man’s law-order, not God’s. By passing a law limiting work hours, price controls, wage rates, etc., the mob proclaims itself free of the need to work, build, plan, save, sacrifice, etc. This is fallen man’s futile proclamation that he is free, and free indeed. It is futile and blind—blind to the fact that this alleged freedom must be imposed by force of government. “Free at gunpoint.”

But someone has to pay the bills. So the rich get soaked; then they quit producing as much as they would in a free market; then general productivity declines; then national living standards decline; then the State prints and borrows to maintain its promises; then the debts start to get called. Someone has to pay those bills. You can’t just legislate them away indefinitely.

AUSTRALIAN GUN LAW UPDATE

From: Ed Chenel , A police officer in Australia
 
  Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under .  
It has now been 18 months since gun owners in  Australia  were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia  taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.  
   
  The first year results are now in:
  Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
  Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
  Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!  

  In the state of  Victoria  alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)  
   
  While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.  
   
  There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.  
   
  Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns..' You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.  

  The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
  
  Take note Americans, before it's too late!

PERPETUAL LEGISLATIVE WATCH / CONGRESSIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY PROJECT

FROM WWW.TEAPATYPATRIOTS.ORG
The warm up is complete. Now the real fight begins!

As Samuel Adams said, "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

Tea Party Patriots is launching a Perpetual Legislative Watch/Congressional Accountability Project. We have already been watching the legislators for the past 20 months. We have no intention of letting up now. On the weekend of November 12 - 14, local coordinators from around the country will meet with the incoming Congressional freshmen for an orientation.

We will have legislative experts who will guide the freshmen on how to first defund and ultimately repeal government controlled health care.

We will have economic experts to help them understand the things they will need to do to reduce the federal deficit and restore fiscal sanity to the country.

We will have experts who can provide guidance on how to restore Constitutional governance to the country. We will help them to bond together to restore the Constitution in the upcoming legislative session.

Finally, we want them to know that if they do the right thing, they will have the support of the people.

CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS

Please consider the following as American moves closer to election day.
Incumbents are returned to office 98% of the time.
The biggest reason is funding—by the Democratic and Republican parties, and unions.


You can check out information at the Family Research Council to view campaign contributions and committee memberships. Please educate yourself on this very important topic.
http://www.frc.org/contact-elected-officials
FRC Congressional Directory--pick your state, legislator, then PAC for list of campaign contributions; Committee memberships


Next, if Americans no longer make campaign contributions to parties (Democratic and Republicans) but instead make campaign contributions directly to the candidate, this loosens the hold the party has on the candidate.
The elected candidate is not so beholden to the party and is able to cast votes according to conscience rather than party dictate.
However, your contribution is capped by election laws.


Now, consider this.
You are allowed to make campaign contributions to PACs (political action committees) with fewer restrictions in larger amounts.
There are a number of organizations that operate in this fashion that might interest you.
Any such contributions are NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE.


http://www.superpacusa.com/ -- Dick Morris has a strategy with SuperPacUSA to run ads on behalf of conservative candidates.

This information is only for your information.
Whatever you decide to do with this information is entirely up to you.


Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment. Proverbs 23:23 (NLT)

SOCIALISM -- EASY TEST

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan"..

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A....

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail becausewhen the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that.

Remember, there is a test coming up. The mid-term election in 2010!

THE STATE PUBLIC PENSION CRISIS

A website is referenced below which you may choose to download; it’s an extremely interesting study report by the Heartland Institute, entitled "The State Public Pension Crisis."

Basically the study confirms what we all suspected: that a significant part of the big government financial insanity is the totally out of control government employee's pension programs in most of our states. The study concludes that the pension programs in 42 out of 50 states are unsustainable (potentially leading to bankruptcy.)

California is a typical horror story:

According to public databases, more than 5,000 retired California government workers receive annual pension benefits exceeding $100,000.

Ten California retirees currently receive more than $220,000 a year in pension benefits. Topping the list is Bruce Malkenhorst, who retired in 2006 after a 27-year run as Vernon city administrator. He receives $41,639 a month – $499,674 this year. Not bad for having run a town of just 92 people that has no school, park, library, or grocery store. This “city” near Los Angeles is made up almost entirely of industrial properties. Malkenhorst was being paid $600,000 a year when he retired.

RESEARCH ON HUMAN EMBRYOS

CONGRESS MAY MOVE TO FUND DEADLY RESEARCH ON HUMAN EMBRYOS

www.nrlc.org

A federal judge on Monday ordered the Obama Administration to stop paying for scientific research that kills human embryos.

But the fight isn’t over. The judge ruled that using federal taxpayer dollars for stem cell research that involves the killing of human embryos violates a law passed by Congress in 1996.That law, known as the Dickey-Wicker Amendment after the two Congressmen who introduced it, says that no federal funds can be used for research in which a human embryo is destroyed or harmed.

National Right to Life was deeply involved in the original fight to pass the amendment. But now the amendment itself is under attack. It’s expected anti-life members of Congress will try to overturn the judge’s ruling by repealing the Dickey-Wicker Amendment, perhaps in September or in a lame-duck session of Congress after the November 2nd elections. National Right to Life will keep fighting with everything we’ve got to protect the Dickey-Wicker Amendment and all pro-life policies that protect human life. National Right to Life supports the many kinds of promising stem cell research that do not involve the killing of a human embryo.

But we strongly oppose the killing of any human being so their stem cells can be removed and used in scientific experiments. You can help National Right to Life defend the Dickey-Wicker Amendment and other pro-life protections in federal law with a generous contribution today. Thank you for standing and defending innocent human lives!

PEOPLE ARE GROOMED TO BE MARXISTS

http://www.visiontoamerica.org/articles/people-are-groomed-to-be-marxists.html
Vision to America exists to help America return to our Founding Father's vision for a Christian Republic. It is our Vision to see Americans once again recognize that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights and that this Creator is the God of the Bible.

Written By: Teague Cuddeback -- 8-17-2010

Most people know little about Marxism and need more knowledge on the subject. For instance, how did Marxism take hold in this country without anyone noticing until it was clawing away at our freedoms? If we look closely around us, we might be surprised at some of the people who are doing the clawing.

Do not forget this: People are groomed to be Marxists. They are carefully selected and people often self-select to be mentored in Marxism. It happens every day. And it’s been happening for a very long time in America. How do I know? Well, it’s because I was encouraged and trained in the Marxist Method, first by those practicing the Marxist Method themselves (they may not have realized their handlers were Marxists) and later as a protégée of an avowed Marxist. Only I didn’t know it at the time.

I, of course, was only one of thousands similarly enticed across the country. My own mentor had numerous protégés, many of whom I came to realize were gay. We protégés had little day-to-day contact with each other. And that, I’m sure, was by design. Had we known what each of us was up to, we likely would not have been so cooperative in the worthy group effort that united us: The American Civil Rights Movement. Or we might have compared notes and decided we didn’t want to further each other’s more personal agendas. No, we stayed, at least for a while, blissfully ignorant, not entirely understanding the who and the what of the political company we kept. We were young, impressionable, sometimes alienated but always seeking greater autonomy from anxious or overweening parents.

We just knew we were changing the world for the better. It felt great to be appreciated, considered important, to be working under the guiding hand of someone older, but not too much older; someone in the know, well placed, intelligent, well-read, cheerful, always encouraging, affirming us as talented, valuable persons. We were praised for unselfishly standing for the disenfranchised, the disrespected, those without the legal power to do much for themselves. Oh, how we identified! (That, by the way, is powerful “triangulation” and “layering.”)

So, why is any of this important to know or revisit now? Because, by and large, MARXISTS INITIALLY CRAFTED THEIR MESSAGE TO RALLY YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULTS WHO HAD GROWN UP WITH CHRISTIAN VALUES BUT WERE NOT WELL TRAINED IN THE SCRIPTURES (AND THEY’RE DOING IT AGAIN!). And, because what was done below the radar then is flying formidably above us now, strafing us, bombing our constitutional infrastructure, obstructing our vision with the smoke of deliberately set political and social fires, and driving us into the open, frightened and angry at the same time.

This is a time to act, but more often than not, we’ve just reacted (no well thought-out strategic plan) or done nothing (wallowed in despair). This is a time to think and act. And the thinking must be ‘big picture” and self- critical. Otherwise, the sins of omission committed in the past and all they did to further the agenda of the Marxists, will be impossible to overcome. You see, they know we are one of the best tools in their tool box!

I do see signs of hope:

The TEA Party movement has emerged to the utter shame of the Republican Party. It is challenging the brain-dead thinking of those still surrendering their votes to Leftists whose policies are directly responsible for most of the social and economic ills we face today. They are having some impact. THE TEA PARTIERS ALSO HAVE SHOCKED AND FRIGHTENED REPUBLICAN PARTY STALWARTS WHO HAVE BEEN DOING THE SAME THING FOR SO LONG WITH THE SAME PATHETIC RESULTS AND ARE THREATENED BY VOTERS WHO NOW DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY OR THEIR JOBS.

Anyone who’s been to a TEA Party rally has felt the energy and desire to “get ‘er done” and know the BLANKET CHARGES OF RACISM ARE LUDICROUS. DEMOCRATS MAKE THESE STATEMENTS TO DISGUISE THE FACT THEY HAVE BEEN PROMOTING GENOCIDE AMONG BLACKS FOR DECADES AND MORE RECENTLY ENCOURAGING HISPANICS TO BE LAW BREAKERS. The Tea Partiers – bless their souls – are attempting to demonstrate that it is the institutionalizing Democrats that block all efforts to unleash the native intelligence and skills of those kept poor by deception and fraud.

Various conservative politicians and organizations are still on the job, but they are not “boots on the ground.” New entities have formed, bringing new political communication tools to the average American. But these, as yet, have not saved American Freedom for the same reason. Please take note: LOW TECH RELATIONSHIP BUILDING AT THE PRECINCT LEVEL IS THE FOUNDATION OF HIGH-TECH COMMUNICATION SUCCESS ON ELECTION DAY. The Tea Party has a sense that this is true but it is not yet a political organization. The Republican Party hasn’t figured any of this out yet and hasn’t given Michael Steele the green light to do what he instinctively knows to do.

SOMETHING ESSENTIAL IS MISSING. IT IS AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW WE GOT TO THIS AWFUL PLACE IN OUR HISTORY, WHERE OUR VERY RIGHTS ARE DAILY THREATENED WITH EXTINCTION. And it is that understanding that can translate into something that really has never existed, no matter what the Republican Party and its similarly minded allied-organizations say.

We have never had true conservative political organization at the grass roots, one that tells the Republican Party what to do. REAL GRASS ROOTS ORGANIZATION ENGAGES BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT, COMMANDS PERSONAL AND NEIGHBORHOOD RESOURCES, ACTS AT THE MICRO-LEVEL, HAS A BROAD UNDERSTANDING OF ISSUES AND THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND AND TRIANGULATE THEM AND PERSONALIZE THEM IN A BRIEF CONVERSATION; THE MENTAL AGILITY AND RHETORIC TO ENGAGE DISSIMILAR VOTING GROUPS AROUND HARD AND FAST PRINCIPLES, AND THE GUTS TO GET OUT AND DO THE LEG WORK, TO BE THE ‘BOOTS ON THE GROUND” WHERE YOU SEEK THE MIND OF FELLOW AMERICANS IN INTELLECTUAL BATTLE. These are the unseen activities that don’t make the news. The fact that they are unseen is why they are extremely effective.

Principles are great, but if you cannot take them to a neighborhood where people are ignorant of them and show them how those principles can work for and improve the lives of the people who live there, those principles have no life. This is where Republicans conservatives, and even many Christian churches, failed. They wait for people to come to them, rather than go out to meet people where they are and lead them to where they need to go. GOING OUT TO THE PEOPLE WITH THEIR “PLAN” FOR IMPROVING PEOPLE’S LIVES IS WHAT MARXISTS DO WITHOUT FAIL, DAY AFTER DAY, YEAR AFTER YEAR, RELIGIOUSLY, RELENTLESSLY, RAIN OR SHINE. Believe me, they have read and studied the Bible. They know this is exactly what Jesus did. And they have hijacked His principles and methods for their own godless purposes.

If only we could see some of our enemies as people who need to be saved from a lie, we could win enough of them to save American Freedom and meet the Marxists on a level playing field armed with the truth.

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. THE REPUBLIC CAN SURVIVE A BARACK OBAMA, WHO IS, AFTER ALL, MERELY A FOOL. IT IS LESS LIKELY TO SURVIVE A MULTITUDE OF FOOLS SUCH AS THOSE WHO MADE HIM THEIR PRESIDENT."

DENNIS PRAGER'S SUGGESTION TO SCHOOL PRINCIPALS

http://townhall.com/columnists/DennisPrager/2010/07/13/a_speech_every_american_high_school_principal_should_give/page/full

Dennis Prager, one of America's most respected radio talk show hosts, has been broadcasting in Los Angeles since 1982. Dennis Prager's popular show became nationally syndicated in 1999 and airs live, Monday through Friday, 9am to 12pm (Pacific Time), 12pm to 3pm (Eastern) from his home station, KRLA.

Dennis Prager was a Fellow at Columbia University's School of International Affairs, where he did graduate work at the Middle East and Russian Institutes. Dennis Prager was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to the U.S. Delegation to the Vienna Review Conference on the Helsinki Accords. He holds an honorary doctorate of law from Pepperdine University.

The commentary below was written by Mr. Prager for TownHall.com, a conservative website.

A SPEECH EVERY AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL SHOULD GIVE

If every school principal gave this speech at the beginning of the next school year, America would be a better place.

To the students and faculty of our high school:

I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach young people.

I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.

First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships.

The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity -- your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American. This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans.

If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity-, race- and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its three central values -- e pluribus unum, "from many, one." And this school will be guided by America's values.

This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.

Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism -- an unhealthy preoccupation with the self -- while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interesting in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.

Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America's citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here -- it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English -- but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.

Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning's elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.

Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school's property -- whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can't speak without using the f-word, you can't speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as . . . . . It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.

Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way -- the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago -- by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.

Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue. There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately lucky -- to be alive and to be an American.

Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.

INTRODUCTION TO THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND CONSTITUTION

http://www.hillsdale.edu/KirbyCenter/resources/constitutionreader/intro/default.asp

Introduction to the Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States
David J. Bobb, Director, Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship Lecturer in Political Science, Hillsdale College

When in 1863 Abraham Lincoln began his address at Gettysburg battlefield with the phrase, "Four score and seven years ago," he reminded his fellow citizens that their cause in the Civil War was also the cause of 1776. In the year of America's birth, Lincoln stated, "Our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

By recalling the year 1776, in which America declared its independence from Great Britain, Lincoln reminds us that the Constitution of 1789 stands upon the principles of our Declaration of Independence.

America's bedrock principles are liberty and equality. The American understanding of their relationship was revolutionary, for the American Revolution was a revolution of ideas.

The Declaration affirms the revolutionary idea that all human beings are created equal in their possession of "certain unalienable rights." These rights include "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." They are given to human beings by "Nature's God" - not by government. Because the government does not give these rights to human beings, the Declaration argues, no government can take them away.

These "natural rights" are an individual's most precious property, the American founders believed. Government's primary purpose is to protect these fundamental rights.

The Declaration, drafted by the 33-year-old Thomas Jefferson, is an indictment of a government that had betrayed its purpose. Instead of protecting his subjects' rights, King George III routinely violated them. Rejecting their status as subjects to a king who had become a "tyrant," Americans declared to the world that they now stood proudly as citizens of a new nation.

Citizenship requires self-government above all else. Americans, James Madison wrote under the pen name Publius, "rest all our political experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government."

The United States Constitution, of which Madison is rightly called its "father," is the written result of America's early "political experiments." Drawing from their own colonial experience and the history of other regimes through the ages, the framers of the American constitution founded a new regime - a regime of liberty.

The regime, or form of our government, is republican. Its end, or purpose, is liberty. A republic as framed in the American Constitution is founded on the people's consent. It requires not that the people rule directly but rather that they are directly responsible for electing their representatives. These representatives, in turn, are responsible to the people.

Asked about what kind of government the secretive Constitutional Convention of 1787 had produced in its long summer deliberations in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin famously responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."

Keeping a republic requires the people to keep the government's duties limited. For that reason the Constitution delineates the duties of each branch of government - legislative, executive, and judicial. Ensuring that liberty would be protected required a regime in which the powers of government were separated. Any other arrangement threatened liberty.

"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny," Madison, writing as Publius, argued in the Federalist, the authoritative defense of the Constitution he co-authored with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay.

Madison's concise definition of tyranny draws upon the ideas of the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle. It also is indebted to what Hamilton called a "great improvement" in the science of politics.

Like Madison's definition of tyranny, the Constitution is the product of wisdom both ancient and modern. At its inception it was revolutionary in its innovative combination of these ideas with uniquely American political institutions. Even today, as the longest enduring written constitution in the world, the American Constitution remains revolutionary.

"Citizenship requires self-government above all else."

The American framers affirmed the ancient wisdom that for liberty to last it had to be consistent with order. Human beings are by nature enough inclined to evil that they cannot be entrusted with unlimited power. Human beings are by nature good enough that, when their passions are properly checked, they can govern themselves.

The rule of law, the framers believed, is the best response to this mixed nature of human beings. Power must be divided - between the branches of government, and between the national, state, and local governments - to prevent tyranny. No human being is above the law. The Constitution ratified in 1789 established that neither the new chief executive nor the new justices of the Supreme Court were above the law.

Some early Americans argued for further limiting the power of the federal government by amending the Constitution to include a Bill of Rights. Others insisted that specifying rights retained by the people was ill-advised, for doing so would imply that unlisted rights were unprotected rights. Despite these differences, and owing much to Madison's prudent statesmanship, the First Congress produced ten amendments that offered a specific but not exhaustive list of rights retained by the American people - and the states. Early Americans agreed on a point frequently forgotten today: rights ultimately are not born of a "parchment barrier." The Constitution's structure secures our liberty, but our rights are authored by our Creator.

"Here, sir, the people govern," Hamilton stated at the Constitutional Convention. Washington, the peoples' first president, gave a living lesson to his fellow citizens of the power of humility before the law. "The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon," Washington declared in 1795.

"Happily for America, happily we trust for the whole human race, they pursued a new and more noble course," Madison wrote of those who fought the American Revolution. American citizens of every generation honor the nobility of that new course, the American founding fathers taught, by never abandoning the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the regime of liberty for which these documents stand.

POWER TO ALL THE LAWFUL PEOPLE

I believe this article should be read and understood by all Patriots. We must keep the goal in mind for years to come and teach others the same if we truly want our country to be a land of the free and brave. Please urge all to continue to do the job and replacing our country back in our hands, the hand of the people.

TEA Party Rallies 1776 – Progressives 0
By J. C. Powers
editor@nationaldefender.us
http://nationaldefender.us/

The Progressives in the media have declared that the TEA Party rallies have run their course. Yes indeed, they have run their course and will continue to run their course right through November. There is a lull during the summer months regarding TEA Party rallies, but that don’t mean tea-baggers and astroturfers have lost their determination to unseat as many incompetent incumbents as humanly possible. The continued application of volatile fuels like unemployment, high taxes, outrageous spending, personal economic stress, illegal immigration appeasement, and sustained high costs associated with exclusive energy policies enabled by Congress and the interim President permeated the entire American culture.

To add disappointment, those individuals expecting “Obama Cash” to pay their rent and fill their cars with gasoline are quickly learning that these alleged minority representatives are in the battle of their political lives attempting to create a strong voting-base of undocumented workers; completely ignoring the existing minorities already struggling through job-losses and poverty in the United States.

Along with calling oath-keeping veterans domestic terrorists, the NAACP, the congressional elitists and the Obama Administration are declaring TEA Party attendees as racists and bigots. It should be noted here that most attendees believe the human race descended from a dark-skinned couple who go by the names Adam and Eve. The Progressives believe all humans, including minorities, evolved from monkeys. The reintroduction of racism in the country has not come from the patriots on the right, but from the Progressives on the extreme left.

Americans are living in a critical transition period with heavy-duty impositions through increasing government authority and dissipating constituent influences; but we‘re also living in the information age. Despite the mainstream media’s attempt to distract the citizenry, both Progressives and RINOs are being lined-up for the political guillotine. But the citizens aren’t interested in merely creating a majority of constitutionally inclined representatives in both houses of congress; they’re aiming at a super majority of filibuster and veto-proof representatives in the House and by 2012, in the Senate.

The complex array of communists among the 435 seats in the House of Representatives will require the piecemeal demolition of the iron fisted political society by informed voters. The intensity within many of the 435 congressional districts indicates even moderate-liberals are fed-up with the Progressive theology. Congress and the Kenyan will work non-stop to muster as much support as possible for an amnesty program, but unlike the 1980s when illegal immigrants were hard-working Christians looking for a more free and prosperous life, the new version of wetbacks are drug-smugglers, rapists, con-artists, thieves, and virtual welfare dregs; people who are far more in-line with the Progressives’ idea of a well-balanced society that requires their overwhelming totalitarian intercessions.

The current House is divided with 253 Democrats and 135 Republicans and four vacant seats. The quick summation requires the patriotic constitutionalists to garner 200 seats; ousting a combination of 200 Democrats and RINOs. On the Senate side the patriots will have to replace weak-kneed appeasers and compromisers like Lindsay Graham and John McCain at their first opportunity and garner at least 23 seats in each of the next three Senate election cycles.

Several states are in need of cleansing as well. Here in the State of Michigan it appears as if Paul Opsommer is the only person in Lansing worth rehiring for another term in office; the rest need to get in the soup-line with the constituents they put there along with most national representatives and both of Michigan’s U. S. senators. Wall Street and union workers aren’t the problem; addicted politicians and other “notice me!” control freaks like environmentalists, reverse-racists, gays and other special interest groups are the problem. To the demise of the Progressives, the days of the free-thinking patriots are returning in a devastating avalanche.

Locally, from school boards to councils and commissions, patriotic citizens are looking to put people in those seats that are unwilling to tolerate unfunded mandates and unwilling to drop their drawers and bend-over for environmentalists. People need to be in those seats that are willing to establish clear lines of authority, recognize priorities, meet and fulfill expectations, and ensure the taxpayers are receiving the best possible bang for their bucks as possible.

It’s time that the counties/parishes, cities, and townships declare their independence and sovereignty from the influences of the state while being weaned from the states’ dictatorial teats and it’s time for the states to declare their own level of independence and sovereignty from the national government. It’s also time we all declared ourselves independent of foreign industries, consumable goods and fuels.

Seriously, what politician has ever stepped-up and required country of origin labels on the front of all packages and clear “product of” identification on the placards over produce, meats and poultry? Maybe it’s time citizens entrusted with legislative, judicial and executive duties by their own countrymen start protecting and defending the rights of their fellow citizens over the power and influences of special interest groups and cease ratifying their own good-old-boy clubs.

Power to all the lawful People!

U. S. CONSTITUTION -- WHAT WE FORGOT

Don’t Believe This Liberal Lie
July 30, 2010 by Chip Wood

http://www.personalliberty.com/conservative-politics/dont-believe-this-liberal-lie/

U. S. CONSTITUTION
What is the most important sentence in the U.S. Constitution? I would submit that it’s the very first one. Our Founding Fathers set the tone for everything they believed, and everything that would follow, in Article I, Section 1, sentence one.

It reads, “ALL legislative powers herein granted are vested in Congress….”

If ‘ALL’ lawmaking power resides in Congress, how much is in the Supreme Court?
NONE!
How about the Executive Branch?
NONE!

FIRST AMENDMENT
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

“Congress shall make no law,” either promoting a religion or prohibiting one.

According to the Constitution, what are the states allowed to do when it comes to religion (or just about anything else)?

The answer is, pretty much whatever they want.

A LESSON ON THE AMERICAN FLAG

All Americans should be given this lesson. Those who think that America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that thought. Our founding fathers used GOD's word and teachings to establish our Great Nation and I think it's high time Americans get re-educated about this Nation's history.

Pass it along and be proud of the country we live in and even more proud of those who serve to protect our 'GOD GIVEN' rights and freedoms.

Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to so many widows and widowers.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?

Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of life.

The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life

The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world.

The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.

The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, 'Our Country, in dealing with other countries, May she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.'

The 6th fold is for where people's hearts lie. It is with their heart that they pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they are found within or without the boundaries of their republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.

The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for him, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.

The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding them of their nations motto, 'In God We Trust.'

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today.

There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning.

In the future, you'll see flags folded and now you will know why.

Share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of ' Liberty and Freedom.'

MAY GOD PROTECT US ALWAYS:
ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
Our Soldiers have preserved your right to make this choice!

PRESERVING DEMOCRACY

Tim Dake, Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty, requests wide notification of the book titled: PRESERVING DEMOCRACY.

Author Elgin Hushbeck spoke at the Independence Day Tea Party in Wausau in 2009.
They believe that this book has a strong message that needs to get out to as many people as possible.

January 13, 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gonzalez, Florida
Paperback Edition of Preserving Democracy to be Released
SUMMARY: The 2nd expanded paperback edition of Preserving Democracy by Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. will be released July 4, 2010 with advance copies available starting June 8, 2010.

RELEASE: Energion Publications announces the impending release of the 2nd, paperback edition of Preserving Democracy, the exciting exposé of the political situation in the United States today. With precision and merciless logic, author Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. cuts to the heart of the problems that threaten to weaken and ultimately destroy our democracy.

Why release a second edition? Because the political landscape in America seems to be wavering. "Many people realize that something is broken with government but they are not sure what. Preserving Democracy clearly reveals the root causes behind the problems that threaten our country," says Elgin.

Elgin is an engineer, business owner, author, lecturer, and commentator with a B.A in Electrical Engineering, and MA in Christian Apologetics, and an MBA in Technology Management. His interest and concern for how government works was instilled in him by his mother and father, to whom he is very grateful.

Elgin says of Preserving Democracy, "It does not waste time with partisan finger pointing. The problems we face are too serious. It focuses on the policies and the problems, not the politicians and the parties. This is not to say that it is a middle of the road book without a clear position. It is not. It argues strongly for the vision of the democratic republic set forth by the Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution – a Republic where individuals and liberty are dominant."

The second edition is in handsome paperback format, with new, larger type. In addition, it has three new forewords from readers of the first edition, one from a liberal, one from a moderate, and one from a conservative. Elgin has also written an extended update on the book, showing how various issues have developed since the first edition.

This final chapter will be especially valuable to those who are trying to make sense of the claims and counter-claims that have resulted from the tea party movement. If you would like to make informed decisions about this year's elections, you owe it to yourself to read Preserving Democracy.

Advance copies of Preserving Democracy will begin shipping June 9, 2010, and the official release date is July 4, 2010. The suggested retail price will be $14.99. For interviews or for further information contact Energion Publications via e-mail, marketing@energion.com or by phone at 850-525-3916, or see this book’s dedicated web site, preservingdemocracy.com.

THE 56 SIGNERS OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

Happy 4th of July

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

Get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

These men were true patriots and a far cry for the politicians who are the members of our congress today.

Remember this in November of 2010, when you vote.

JEFFERSON'S ARGUMENTS FOR NULLIFICATION AND LIMITED GOVERNMENT

by Gennady Stolyarov II

The doctrine of nullification, i.e., the idea that states have the right to unilaterally render void an act of the federal government that they perceive to be contrary to the Constitution, finds its origins in the writings of Thomas Jefferson, most notably his 1798 Kentucky Resolutions, written to protest the Federalist Congress’s passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Thomas Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolutions claim that the U. S. Constitution was a compact among the several states-whereby the states delegated certain limited powers to the U.S. government; any undelegated power exercised by the U. S. government is thus void.

Furthermore, the general government is not the final and authoritative judge of its own powers, since that would make the government’s discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of those powers-but rather the parties to the contract, the states, have each an equal right to judge for themselves whether the Constitution has been violated as well as “the mode and measure of redress”-since there is no common judge of such matters among them.

Thus, every state can of its own authority nullify within its territory “all assumptions of power by others”-i.e., all perceived violations of the Constitution by the federal government.
The Kentucky Resolution uses the Tenth Amendment to justify a strict construction of the general government’s powers; any powers not expressly delegated to the U. S. government remain the province of the states or the people, and any exercise of those powers by the general government is void and can be struck down by the states on that basis.

Furthermore, Jefferson warns against construing the “necessary and proper” clause so broadly as to justify the assumption of undelegated powers by the general government; the intent of the clause was to only enable the execution of limited powers, not to indefinitely extend the general government’s scope. Otherwise, this part of the Constitution would be used “to destroy the whole residue of that instrument.”

Jefferson counsels the states to be vigilant against violations of the Constitutions and not hesitant to strike down unconstitutional measures by Congress or the President; he writes that “free government is founded in jealously and not in confidence” and therefore urges that “no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

In other words, the states should not trust federal officials with non-constitutional powers simply because those particular federal officials might be trusted to use those powers benevolently; this kind of “confidence of man” leads to the destruction of free government.

Gennady Stolyarov II is an independent philosophical essayist, composer, amateur mathematician, contributor to Mises.org, editor-in-chief of The Rational Argumentator and The Progress of Liberty, and a high-ranking content producer on Associated Content.

REFLECTIONS ON THE FOURTH OF JULY

Greetings!

I hope everyone out there has an enjoyable and safe 4th of July weekend.
As a Constitutional conservative, I believe it is important to take a bit of time and reflect upon our founders, who at great risk to themselves and their families, took up arms against what they believed to be a tyrannical and unjust government. Although we tend to associate the 4th of July with the ultimate result of their effort- the creation of a free and independent constitutional republic, we must remember that the 4th of July could perhaps best be described as the “end of the beginning.”

Despite what some may believe, the time period leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence was one of uncertainty. Although many of our founders were steadfast proponents of separation from very early on, there were others who were less certain about the proper course to pursue. Partly out of fear of the might of the British military, many at the time were more inclined to submit to the will of the crown, rather that pursue a course that would assuredly lead to violence. For some, the thought of breaking ties with the crown was simply heretical, despite openly acknowledging the many transgressions that had occurred. Such people recognized that problems existed and necessitated rectification, but none the less had great difficulty in stepping outside of their psychological comfort zone and embracing a new and untried course. Some of these people would eventually be swayed into supporting independence, but others simply refused to make such a transformation, regardless of the evidence presented.

Yet the fact that the Declaration of Independence was eventually drafted and signed shows that a definitive point in time was reached when the bulk of society finally realized that the paradigm had unequivocally shifted, and that the time to take action had finally arrived. The people had come to realize that the old way of doing things was no longer possible, and that a new course was necessary. It was accepted that freedom was in fact worth pursuing, but that to achieve it, a long road paved in blood, sweat, and tears would first have to be travelled.

We are today faced with a similar situation in that we will eventually have to come to terms with the true nature of the problems we are encountering. Many of us have for sometime realized that our current course is unsustainable and will ultimately lead to ruin if left unchecked. Others are just now starting to grasp the magnitude and scope of the predicament we are in. And of course, there are those who will continue to assert that there are no problems, that Government knows best, and that we must perpetuate the status quo because that is how things have always been done. Just as it was over two centuries ago, we are now faced with the same questions and problems that faced our nation’s founders- Do we move forward with a firm understanding that our past choices are what brought us to where we are today? That me must reverse course and embrace fiscal responsibility and a smaller, less intrusive government? Or do we attempt to perpetuate the unsustainable by refusing to acknowledge our past mistakes and thereby commit or children to a life of mediocrity?

On the 4th of July we will celebrate men who had the strength of character to put the past behind them and embark on an uncertain and dangerous journey in the pursuit of individual liberty. As you enjoy this weekend, please contemplate how hard it must have been to come to such a conclusion, and then consider the situation we are facing as a community and as a country. Our founders gave us the tools necessary to peacefully achieve the change that in their day, required the sacrifice of everything they had every worked for or cherished; for some even there own lives or the lives of their children. Our efforts will hopefully not require such sacrifices, but it will nonetheless be a long and hard journey, likely spanning decades, and it will require a steadfast devotion to our ideals and our principles. The problems we are facing can be rectified if we are willing to step forward, like our founders, and accept that the past must be put to rest. Like many of you, I am looking forward to the day when we can look back and say with certainty “that was the day that marked the end of the beginning, the day when we once again stood up and embraced the animating contest of freedom.”

COMMUNIST GOALS -- 1963 SEEM TO BE MET IN AMERICA 2010

How did we get here? We were warned, but we didn't listen. Former Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson warned about what was coming in a 1966 speech where he talked about a meeting he once had with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev:

FORMER SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE EZRA TAFT BENSON: As we talked face to face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his and all other grandchildren would live under freedom, he arrogantly declared in substance: "You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright; but we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you'll finally wake up and find that you already have communism. We won't have to fight you; we'll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands."

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]
CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

MARXISM, COMMUNISM AND AMERICA

Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto
[Source: http://www.mediabypass.com/]
This link may be discontinued. Use your discretion.

The thoughts are mind-awakening.
In the early '60's during the days of the "former" Soviet Union, Russian Premier Nikita Kruschev pounded his shoe on the podium of the United Nations and shouted to the West, "We will bury you!" Fearing an invasion from the Reds, America proceeded to build the most awesome military machine in history. Unfortunately, we forgot to guard our political homefront from being taken over by socialist - communist - liberal activists who would gain office and destroy American law by process of gradually installing the Communist agenda within our legal system and seperate branches of government. The Communist program from the start has been one which sees their revolution of 1917 succesful only upon total domination of the world. (See Brain Washing, A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics)

Americans, being the most naive people among the nations, now believe that Communism is dead because the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain have been removed. The ironic truth is that Communism has just switched names to become more "politically correct". Today it is called international democracy.

The reason that the Berlin Wall came crashing down is not because Communism is dead but because they have achieved the planned agenda to communize the West, including America. Washington D.C. has indeed become part of the New World Order of atheist governments. With the last vestiges of Christian law having been removed from "American government" over the last twenty years, there is no longer a threat of resistance against world Communism. In reality, "American government" became part of the Iron Curtain, thus there was no more need for the likes of a Berlin Wall.

Once again, in their foolishness, the American public has believed the lies of their "leaders" who applaud "the fall of Communism", while they have sold out the country to anti-Christian, anti-American statutes and regulations on the federal, state, and local levels. Posted below is a comparison of the original ten planks of the Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx in 1848, along with the American adopted counterpart of each of the planks, The American people have truly been "buried in Communism" by their own politicians of both the Republican and Democratic parties.

One other thing to remember, Karl Marx was stating in the Communist Manifesto that these planks will test whether a country has become commmunist or not. If they are all in effect and in force the country IS communist. Communism, but by any other name...??

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose.
The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State "income" taxes. We call it "paying your fair share".

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
We call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
We call in government seizures, tax liens, Public "law" 99-570 (1986);
Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of "terrorists" and those who speak out or write against the "government" (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
We call it the Federal Reserve which is a credit/debt system nationally organized by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the State.
We call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver's licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.

7. Extention of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

We call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal liablity of all to labor. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Fedral Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.
We call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136.

10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.
People are being taxed to support what we call 'public' schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education" .

So I ask you...does changing the words, change the end result? By using different words is it all of a sudden OK????? We are so "smart," aren't we??
None are more hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free....

ENGLAND'S WIND FARMS PAID TO DO NOTHING

Professor Michael Laughton, emeritus professor of electrical engineering at the University of London, said: "People will find it very hard to understand that an electricity company is getting paid the market rate plus a subsidy for doing nothing. It is essentially a waste of consumers' money."

Firms paid to shut down wind farms when the wind is blowing

Britain's biggest wind farm companies are to be paid not to produce electricity when the wind is blowing.
By Robert Mendick
Published: 9:00PM BST 19 Jun 2010
 
Energy firms will receive thousands of pounds a day per wind farm to turn off their turbines because the National Grid cannot use the power they are producing.
Critics of wind farms have seized on the revelation as evidence of the unsuitability of turbines to meet the UK's energy needs in the future. They claim that the 'intermittent' nature of wind makes such farms unreliable providers of electricity.
 
The National Grid fears that on breezy summer nights, wind farms could actually cause a surge in the electricity supply which is not met by demand from businesses and households.
The electricity cannot be stored, so one solution – known as the 'balancing mechanism' – is to switch off or reduce the power supplied.

The system is already used to reduce supply from coal and gas-fired power stations when there is low demand. But shutting down wind farms is likely to cost the National grid – and ultimately consumers – far more. When wind turbines are turned off, owners are being deprived not only of money for the electricity they would have generated but also lucrative 'green' subsidies for that electricity.

The first successful test shut down of wind farms took place three weeks ago. Scottish Power received £13,000 for closing down two farms for a little over an hour on 30 May at about five in the morning.

Whereas coal and gas power stations often pay the National Grid £15 to £20 per megawatt hour they do not supply, Scottish Power was paid £180 per megawatt hour during the test to switch off its turbines.

It raises the prospect of hugely profitable electricity suppliers receiving large sums of money from the National Grid just for switching off wind turbines.

Dr Lee Moroney, planning director of the Renewable Energy Foundation, a think tank opposed to the widespread introduction of wind farms, said: "As more and more wind farms come on stream this will become more and more of an issue. Wind power is not controllable and does not provide a solid supply to keep the national grid manageable. Paying multinational companies large sums of money not to supply electricity seems wrong."

Earlier this year, The Sunday Telegraph revealed that electricity customers are paying more than £1 billion a year to subsidise wind farms and other forms of renewable energy.
The proceeds of the levy, known as the Renewables Obligation (RO), are divided between the main renewable energy sources, with wind receiving 40 per cent, landfill gas 25 per cent, biomass 20 per cent, hydroelectric 12 per cent and sewage gas 3 per cent.

Professor Michael Laughton, emeritus professor of electrical engineering at the University of London, said: "People will find it very hard to understand that an electricity company is getting paid the market rate plus a subsidy for doing nothing. It is essentially a waste of consumers' money."

A National Grid spokesman said: "The trial demonstrates that wind can help balance supply and demand just like other generation types: this is potentially useful to us on warm but windy summer days when generation outstrips the low demand – and a higher proportion of generation is made up of wind and inflexible nuclear."

The spokesman added: "The trial is something supporters of wind energy should welcome, as it gives evidence to their case that wind generation does not bring insurmountable problems to balancing supply and demand."

A spokesman for RenewableUK, the trade body which represents the renewable energy industry, said all suppliers to the National Grid periodically were asked to reduce output to control the balancing mechanism. He said it was simply evidence of the growing part wind energy had to play in Britain's supply needs that turbines would occasionally be taken off the National Grid. He added: "REF exists to misrepresent any piece of information and turn it into a scandal or crisis. The reality is the National Grid's job is to ensure we have adequate capacity to meet demand at any one time."

MANMADE GLOBAL WARMING SCIENCE DOESN'T WITHSTAND SCRUTINY

Here is an excerpted summary from the Financial Post on a legal look at global warming science. The complete document can be found at the link below.

Legal verdict: Manmade global warming science doesn’t withstand scrutiny

By Lawrence Solomon June 6, 2010 – 10:47 pm

A cross examination of global warming science conducted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Law and Economics has concluded that virtually every claim advanced by global warming proponents fail to stand up to scrutiny.

The cross examination, carried out by Jason Scott Johnston, Professor and Director of the Program on Law, Environment and Economy at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, found that “on virtually every major issue in climate change science, the [reports of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] and other summarizing work by leading climate establishment scientists have adopted various rhetorical strategies that seem to systematically conceal or minimize what appear to be fundamental scientific uncertainties or even disagreements.”

Professor Johnson, who expressed surprise that the case for global warming was so weak, systematically examined the claims made in IPCC publications and other similar work by leading climate establishment scientists and compared them with what is found in the peer-edited climate science literature. He found that the climate establishment does not follow the scientific method. Instead, it “seems overall to comprise an effort to marshal evidence in favor of a predetermined policy preference.”

The 79-page document, which effectively eviscerates the case for man-made global warming, can be found here:
