Free The People: A Short Course on America’s Form of Government

3 06 2018

Democracies are Doomed to Failure

The following video is simply THE BEST 10 minutes spent by ANYONE who wants to know what is unique about America, is even the slightest bit interested in American History, or just needs to be educated on the issue.

This video showed up on my Facebook feed, and actually has a “Warning” screen covering it, giving the impression there is some vile or offensive content that people may not want to see.  Well, it may be offensive to those who want the American People to remain ignorant of their own history, and continue in the current progression toward an Oligarchical system.  We’ve already seen, just in the last 20 years, and more specifically in the previous administration, how anarchism is used to initiate the “democracy” minded agents (better known as “the mob”, or as Lenin called them, “Useful Idiots”) to then demand the further exchange of power to the Oligarchy.

This is an excellent tool that perfectly destroys confusion and misconceptions about who the “Right” and the “Left” really are, and the accurate differences.  Throughout history, those who seek to destroy must demonize their opposition.  This has been successfully orchestrated in the United States by using media, academia, and bureaucracy to indoctrinate, embarrass and manipulate the gullible masses.

Please, take a few minutes, watch it and then share it!

Memorial Day: Remember Them

27 05 2018

Leavenworth, KS, National Cemetery

Memorial Day: It isn’t about the government. It’s not about a President, or a Party. It’s about “Them”; They who have preceded us, and inspire us to
measure up. To Them.

The endless rows of white stones and mausoleums command the heights of former battlefields and sprawl across the rolling course of green, under the cobalt space which beckons the occupants, and comforts those eyes who behold the wonder and contemplation of a grateful and humble people.

Those who fail to simply stand for a few minutes in the presence of self sacrifice, and listen, and feel, the proud and reverent spirit that hovers over and among these places of hallowed memorial, who never feel the moist fog rise up in the eye, will never know what it truly means to be an American.

I salute thee, Oh valiant Ones, who ‘saw the elephant’, felled the giants, charged into the Angle, bled on the Poppy Fields, drowned in the icey Seas, scaled the jagged Cliffs under enfilade fire, and plunged into darkness unknown.

Never shall I forget Ye who sweated and bled in the Jungles, choked in the Desert Sands, froze in the Chosin, watched as Saigon fell behind you, served your shipmates in death rites, and were felled by the sniper’s round at Fallujah.

Nor will I ever forget you, who survived the battle, carried those scenes your entire life, sharing only a few, and finally found rest after a lifetime of continued service to your country and those around you.

This I promise.

Never Forget. Them.





Identity Politics: What is Truth?

29 01 2018

Identity Politics is the result of abandoning Truth.

When I started writing this commentary, I was going to begin with the premise that Identity Politics was the cause of Moral Equivocation and application of double, or multiple standards, but quickly realized that, no, Identity Politics is the result, not the cause of application of “relative truth”.

Truth cannot be relative, but must be held as absolute. Some philosophers have, for centuries, attempted to blur the lines of Good and Evil by questioning truth, as relative, pragmatic, or even plural. This is nothing new. But societies and civilizations rise and fall on the understanding and application of Truth. Why? Because Truth is the basis for Good and Evil.

Understanding Good and Evil is prerequisite for a civil and just society. Mankind has temporarily run into this understanding occasionally throughout history, but it generally does not tend to hold through for multiple generations.

For 50 years we have toyed with Relativism (Truth is relative to the situation-we called it “situational ethics” back in the ‘70’s), and found that we preferred to embrace Pluralism (wherein everything is true, and all philosophies, cultures, ideologies, and religions are of equal value). Pluralism has castrated the minds of Americans and Europeans (culturally and socially) preventing a thought process based upon the fundamental idea of Truth, which brings the understanding of Good and Evil. If Evil does not exist, then what is Good? Who defines it? If there is no difference then Mother Theresa and Adolph Hitler are equal, and share the same eternity. See where that leads?

It leads the Epicurean, (who is always questioning Truth) Pontius Pilate, to look Jesus Christ Himself in the face and ask, “What is Truth”?
Absent of Truth, then “every man does that which is right in his own eyes.” We then gather with those who share the same “truth” as we, so as to justify our position, and point out how “morally corrupt” our opposition is, based on the false premise that we, do indeed, hold the moral high ground. With no fundamental truths to direct or stay our emotional whims, we have then become victims of our own emotional reaction. The society who does this is ripe for the picking. Either by an outside force, or by an opportunistic individual from within.

By adopting Pluralism, we have tried to embrace everything as of equal value; by embracing everything, we hold on to nothing.

This is not a political commentary. It is a call to repentance.

Without God there is no Truth. No Understanding. No Purpose. NO Future. No Hope. Jesus Christ embodies all this.

And that’s my sermon for today.

But listen to Ben for a few seconds. He’s a bit more concise (Starting at 1:20:53. Video should start there.)





Inside the Revolution: Antifa 101

29 08 2017

Antifa Conference, Berlin, 1932

I’ve been studying some history of the Bolshevik Revolution in the early 20th Century. Now reading “Red Victory”, a very well documented account beginning in 1917 with the “February Revolution” followed by “Red Oktober” which developed into Lenin’s “Red Terror” policy.

It seems that Karl Marx’s Utopian ideal of “no borders” and “no economic classes”, where the collective holds “all property in common” and all labor is organized for the “common interest”, cannot be obtained, even according to Vladimir Lenin, except by the Revolution using the power of the state enforced by the gun through tyranny.

Communist revolutions around the world have all come to that same conclusion, that Marx’s Utopia which eliminates war is only attainable through terrorizing and eliminating their opposition. Classic information paradox.

Then you have Fascism… and National Socialism.

These two are hard to differentiate, and in all practicality, when allowed to play out, all 3 systems result in almost the same death, destruction, and dehumanization of it’s opposition. Practical definitions are as follows:

Communism:
a. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
b. The Marxist-Leninist doctrine advocating revolution to overthrow the capitalist system and establish a dictatorship of the proletariat that will eventually evolve into a perfectly egalitarian and communal society.

Fascism:
2. a system of government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of opposition, private economic enterprise under centralized governmental control, belligerent nationalism, racism, and militarism, etc.

Nazism (National Socialism):
The ideology and practice of the Nazis, especially the policy of racist nationalism, national expansion, and state control of the economy.
1. The ideology of (Adolf Hitler’s NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers’ Party), including a Fuhrer’s) totalitarian government, ethnic nationalism, nationalist territorial expansion and state control of the (war) economy.
(All definitions from www.yourdictionary.com)

Antifaschistische Aktion

I was curious about the self appointed “racial justice” group called Antifa. This group finds its origins in Weimar Germany in the 1930’s run up to WW2. “Antifaschistische Aktion” were the “Black Shirts” Communist opposition to the Nazi’s “Brown Shirts”. These two factions duked it out on Germany’s streets as they both vied for political and social power, of course the Nazi’s finally gaining the upper hand. Their modern resurgence is relatively new on the shores of America, but now that I think about it, before Charlottesville when was the last time you saw a torch bearing march of neo-Nazis on the news?

In actuality these groups only have a few thousand “comrades” nation wide, and travel long distances on short notice to do their deeds. The adventure seeking sympathizers who have a idyllic perception of “the cause” represented are often sucked into the vortex of the group, much like ISIS has attracted many of its followers who later live (if they’re lucky) to regret their decision. Others are simply opposed to one group or the other, but fail to consider with whom they are aligning themselves. If you oppose neo-Nazi racists it may not be the best choice to line up with a bunch of club wielding Communists to make your point. Likewise, if you oppose those Communist flag waving black hooded thugs, it might not put you in a favorable position to be standing next to a guy in a white pointed hood or a Nazi flag waver.

But on the other hand, if a person voices opposition to one ideology, it does not necessarily make you a party to the other. This is not an “either/or” discussion, and I’m sick of FB posts and news commentary that drive that narrative.

Symbolism

Just for some historical perspective, I found above photo from Antifa’s conference in Berlin in 1932. Notice the Antifa logo flanked by the two Soviet flags.  The Antifa logo, a circle containing two flags, the red flag is, of course, Communism, while the black flag generally symbolizes Anarchy.  The Anarchists symbol, generally an elongated capital “A” which extends beyond the boundaries of a circle (symbolizes the refusal to be contained by government) is also seen frequently at Antifa protests.  These people have been on the fringes of many protests for years, but now with the more popular, and so called “anti-racist” movement, they have gained prominence among the ranks of Antifa.

A third, and relatively unrecognized symbol showing up at these protests is the circle containing 3 arrows pointing southwest.  There is not a lot of consensus on what the origin of it is, but it has been used in revolutionary actions since at least the French Revolution to demonstrate “Liberty, Equality, and Solidarity”, and by the Socialist Party USA to symbolize the 3 methods of societal change through direct action (sometimes violent), education, and elections.  This essentially falls in line with Saul Alinsky’s organizational methods.  It almost always finds relativity to Democratic Socialist Societies (DS), which even found their place in early American political and militant upheaval during George Washington’s administration.  Washington despised the DS and attributed the bulk of the cause of the “Shay Rebellion” to them.

Antifa is currently a magnet for Socialist/Marxist activist groups around the country such as the Democratic Socialists, Communist Party USA, and the Marxist founded group BLM.

The modern political field is littered with distractions, obstructions, and divisions. This is not a “Trump” thing; it has been going on for many years now. It was simply not expedient for the media to focus on it, and even now, they are very selective about giving details on certain groups which more closely align with their own ideology. Therein lies the greatest danger!

Let us not be led astray by those who appeal to our baser nature.

No. Let us be wise as serpents, yet harmless as doves. And let us not grow weary in well doing…for in due time we shall reap.





Revolution Requires Chaos

14 08 2017

If you haven’t read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” by now, you won’t understand what is happening in America. Professor Barack Obama, our past Chief Community Organizer, taught Alinsky’s methods to his students and promoted them in the White House. Candidate Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on him.

Alinsky’s fundamental premise is found on page 116.

“The first step in community organization is community disorganization. The disruption of the present organization is the first step towards community organization.” He then advises the organizer, When you are labeled an “an agitator, they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function—to agitate to the point of conflict.”(p. 117)

His acknowledgment at the beginning of the book should have given us a clue. To: “…the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.”

America stands at the most pivotal point in her history since the Kansas-Nebraska Act (which resulted in the Civil War). We are polarized. We are factionalized. Our history has been rewritten to minimize the importance of our Judeo-Christian foundation. Our institutions have been purged of morality that comes from that foundation. Our language is adulterated with vulgarities which are most commonplace in our youth. Our youth have been hijacked by powers that redefine what family is, strip them of any faith in God that was instilled as a child, and replaced with the collectivist philosophy, “from each according to ability, to each according to need”. That’s Karl Marx, by the way. It’s also most of the leadership in the current American Democratic Party, some unions, our education system, the media, and yes, it’s beginning to take root in the Republican ranks as well.

This did not begin with Barack Obama, and it will not end now that he is out of office. The Revolutionaries now have a personified objective, a target to rally the followers, most of which are unwitting (Lenin’s term was “Polyezniys” or useful idiots), in Donald Trump. Vehement protests, fear-mongering, political stonewalling and talk of impeachment within the first 6 months is a harbinger for the next four years, unless the unthinkable were to happen, (i.e JFK), and don’t think it is not being discussed in the ranks of the revolution.

Where just a few short months ago, the White House was viewed by the media and the ranks of the revolutionaries as an ally, now it is “public enemy number one“, and as popular as it was to protest the Bush administration, that pales in comparison. (Hearken back to the Tea Party demonstrations against Obama’s policies, and anyone who protested then was simply a “racist”. Now, just as with Bush, it’s “patriotic“.)

Tragically, it doesn’t matter what President Trump does now. The narrative is in – Conservatives are Racist.

One moron who agreed with a small racist organization, which unfortunately for the vast majority of the Right has been successfully cast in the media as representative of the whole, has committed a terrorist act killing someone, and now the entirety of American conservatives who believe in small government, personal responsibility, and the Constitution, are “responsible” and the President they elected is as responsible as the driver of the car.

Are those same voices on the Left- those screaming that Trump is the culprit and responsible for all the polarization in the country- are they willing to own Ferguson? Boston? Dallas? BLM and Antifa?

Do we really know what happened in the hours leading up to the tragedy in Charlottesville? Which protesters were permitted, and which ones weren’t? Where the first rock came from? Who provoked who? Who failed to keep law enforcement between the opposing groups? Who/what the Vice Mayor is? (you prolly haven’t seen his twitter feed which is rife with anti gay, anti white, anti woman vulgarities)

I remember when the Left advocated for freedom of speech. Today, the Left advocates for shutting down speech they disagree with. DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND! I do NOT agree with any group such as KKK which is obviously racist in their doctrines, actions, and presentations. Neither do I defend them, and whole-heartedly condemn that organization. But they have a right to speak, just as the Communist Party USA, the NAACP, the Boy Scouts of America, the Church of Satan, the United Methodist Church, the Freedom Road Socialists (umbrella group of the Marxist BLM organization), the Rotary Club, the Democratic and Republican Parties, Queer Nation, BLM and any other group or individual who wants to speak! (Interestingly enough, we now have fascist groups calling their enemies fascist, and racist groups calling their enemies racist.)

Speak that is!

Not riot, not block traffic and burn buildings, or run a car into a crowd of people! I don’t agree with most of these groups, but I don’t have the right to shut them down, just as they don’t have the right to shut me down!

But that effort is well under way!

Make your stupid statement of what ever your special interest is. I reserve the right to oppose you by arguing my point of view without you shutting me down. If I can’t make a coherent and logical argument as to why you’re wrong, that’s on me. I don’t have the right to violate your person and throw a rock at your empty head! If you are offended by my sign, too bad. If I protest according to the law by obtaining the proper permit to assemble (now there’s a paradox), and you rally a protest against me without the same, who is usurping the law?

But these things don’t matter. All that matters is chaos. Division. Polarization. Advance the revolution. Identity Politics.

Trump isn’t their target. Americanism is the target. Racism isn’t the target. Inequality isn’t the target. Truth is definitely not the objective. But it doesn’t matter.

It’s very simple. Divide and Conquer. As Saul Alinsky said, “The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the Revolution“.

There is blood in the water, and the frenzy has begun.





Against A Red Sky

5 08 2017
“It would be extremely stupid and absurdly utopian to assume that the transition from capitalism to socialism is possible without coercion and without dictatorship…there is absolutely no contradiction in principle between socialist democracy and the exercise of dictatorial powers by individuals.” -Vladimir Lenin during the Russian revolution
          In order to achieve Karl Marx’s dream of elimination of the nation-state (Communist Manifesto) it is strangely ironic that to achieve that goal, a tyrannical police state is necessary.
          Some on the Left and on the Right in America today are both talking of “Revolution”. Those who speak of this with a whimsical or flippant attitude, or may even be serious about it should study a few revolutions. The American Revolution was a relatively low casualty revolution in comparison to others in world history. One reason for which, I would submit, is the overwhelming presence of Christianity in the hearts of the American Patriot. (Also key is the logistical facet; the King of England lived 3,000 miles away on distant shores.) It even paled in comparison to the American Civil War in casualties.
          Studying godless revolutions such as the French or Russian, one understands the influence of Christian beliefs on the actions of warriors, or the lack thereof. The lack of hesitation to “stand against the wall” those who opposed the Bolsheviks or the Jacobins (to the guillotine) testifies to their merciless attempts to “purify” their causes.
          Already embroiled in WW1 fighting off German aggression, what began in Russia as a relatively bloodless “February Revolution” very quickly degenerated into a bloodbath lasting for the next 20 years resulting in millions slaughtered or starved because of their political views.  Over 3 million were exiled to Siberia, many dying there.
          After the initiation of “Red Terror” campaign, one Lenin follower is quoted as saying, “What purpose is served by all these questions of origins and education? One needs only to go into the kitchen and look into his soup pot. If there is meat in it, then he is an enemy of the people. Stand him up against a wall!”
          By the end of “The Reign of Terror” in France, 17,000 aristocrats, clergy, bourgeois and peasants were guillotined in France, with undocumented thousands perishing in prisons w/o trial.
          This all, not to mention General Mao in China, Castro, Che, and such ilk.
          Those who preach their brand of hatred for all things Christian and would cleanse all vestiges of it from our public arena’s, even going so far as to advocate against Christians voting or running for public office, would do well to study some history.
          These revolutions begin as a bid for “social justice” but always deteriorate into an unexpected struggle for survival and political power resulting in desperation, unimaginable human suffering, and injustice. History’s lesson to us is that revolution always takes you farther than you intended to go. And godless revolutions always lead straight to Hell.
          The real question here is, have we learned anything?
          My submission is this: In light of today’s embarrassing level of ignorance of history in America, and the resurgence of Marxist doctrine labeled as “Social Justice”…
          No.




Swamp Hunting

10 06 2017

(Please excuse the title 1915 on your email notice.  I published before I realized I hadn’t titled the post!)

In another life, many years ago, I spent more than a few nights running the woods, chasing after baying hounds and stumbling over deadfalls, crashing through underbrush, lunging over creek banks, and floundering through water that was deeper than it appeared in a flashlight beam.  Long nights of getting wet, cut, descended upon by Game Wardens, bruised, lost, scraped, running until breathless, and laughing at each other in the calamity.  ‘Coon hunting.

I had a dog that was marginal.  Traded a crippled horse plus $50 cash for that dog and a box for the bed of my pickup truck.  I was just a dumb kid, and would have been money ahead to keep the horse.  But ‘coons were bringing good money in those days ($40 apiece in the late ‘70’s) and my buddies and I had nothing better to do after dark, so we needed a dog, but had very little money to spend on one.  Oh, Ole Sally had been quite a dog in her day, and garnished a reputation of being “true blue” (although she was a Black and Tan).  That was before they took her to the swamps in Louisiana and something happened that soured her, unbeknown to me at the time.  (Hmm, maybe a gator. Who knows what distractions and scurrilous psychological maladies be found in a swamp at night?  Probably hit the trail of a slimy US Senator who shape-shifted into a TV “journalist” who stuck a video camera in her face and called her a xenophobic  Procyon Lotor  terrorista…or something.)

I traded for Ole Sal and we commenced to hunt.  More often than not, she’d trail junk (unwanted game such as deer, coyote or worse, a possum).  The problem with a possum is they’ll climb a tree and when the dog hits “tree” it looks like a real “tree”, until you shine up that ole grinnin’ possum.  Occasionally, we’d actually get a ‘coon.

Many times she’d “slick tree”.  That is, she would bay “trail”, and tree on a clean tree (no game in it).  In other words, her experience with the shape shifter in the swamp affected her mind, and she would put on a show, get the hunters all excited, lead us on a fast paced, helter-skelter run, and when finally she showed “tree”, there was nothing there.

The last few months in Washington DC have looked an awful lot like one of my ‘coon hunts.  Lots of excitement and anticipation, imaginations and speculations.  Lots of commentary and expectation while running the trail, only to find a “slick tree”, or worse yet, that ole grinning possum peering back at them.  (For some reason, I want to name him “Harry”.)

But, at least they’re on the hunt.  Rumors of “Russian Collusion” finally were trailed down to “Russian Interference” in the election process, and everyone should be concerned about that ole grinning Possum.  Yep, he tried to get into both parties hen houses, but little Johnny was snookered into opening the coop door, and the old grinning egg sucker carted off a whole treasure trove of emails, some of which implicated Johnny’s candidate, who had tried to set up her own henhouse in a closet ignoring the warnings about those ole snooping possums, and the rules for government communicae.

Accusations of the new President colluding with the old Possum to sabotage Hillary Clinton’s campaign have dissipated into a “slick tree”.   In fact, the old soured Hound himself has repeatedly said so.

Leaving the hunting analogy for just a bit here, let’s take a different view of this whole debacle.

For the months since the election, November of 2016, we have been constantly bombarded with “Trump colluded with the Russians to sabotage Hillary’s campaign”.

First of all, why would the Russians prefer an unknown, a loose cannon, someone who is unpredictable, but has made campaign promises to increase spending on US Military interests and expand our military capabilities, presumably to at least GW Bush’s level, and possibly to Reagan’s era?  It doesn’t make sense.  With Hillary Clinton in the White House, any observer, especially the old Russian possum, would safely assume a continuation of Obama’s foreign policy, worthless red lines and abdication of the Middle East and the Caucuses area to Russia, US Military cuts, a do nothing attitude concerning Russian expansionism into Crimea and Ukraine, not to mention Russia’s military build-up over the last 20 years.  Why would Russia want to risk a free rein and oppose Hillary?  After all, she brought that big red button to Geneva to share with them!

Secondly, and more importantly, who was guarding the henhouse?  Whose administration was on duty?  Whose responsibility was it to make sure that old Possum didn’t get into the henhouse?

That old sour Hound has been leading a pack of yokels down a bad trail and stuck ‘em on a slick tree!  The media and the Congress has been had, and so have the American People!

The real culprit here is not Donald Trump, or his campaign.  Trump had no power or responsibility to keep the Russians out, (assuming that’s truly what happened, a “Russian hack”).  That’s a national security issue.

That is the responsibility of the President of the United States and the US Government; to secure and defend the interests of the United States and her citizens.  The real culprit here is the Obama Administration, yet no hounds are on the trail!  It was the Obama Administration;  James Comey, FBI, Susan Rice, NSA, John Brennen, CIA (who incidentally is known to have supported a Communist Party USA Presidential candidate), Ashton Carter, DOD, Jeh Johnson, Homeland Security,  John Kerry, Secretary of State, Director of Intelligence James Clapper, and finally Loretta Lynch, US Dept of Justice Attorney General.

It was this bunch who were supposed to be “watching the henhouse”, and keeping the Russians under watchful eye, denying them entry at every turn.  What were they doing?  Well, we have been given enough evidence to suggest and confirm that the FBI was monitoring telephone conversations involving Trump campaign members months before the election, as revealed in the NY Times when the felonious “unmasking” report was published.  Why weren’t the FBI blocking the efforts of the Russians, or at least notifying the respective campaigns that Russian probes were being made so take the necessary precautions?  Perhaps there was a little “fishing” going on; let’s let them in and see if we can tie the Trump people up in a collusion scandal.  Hmm?  Well, it’s about as valid speculation as some of the other stupidity I’ve heard.  But of course, then President Obama got really tough with Putin and told him to “cut it out”.  That should have taken care of the old Possum.

So when is Congress going to subpoena Loretta Lynch and grill her about her request to Jim Comey (which he said made him very uncomfortable) to use the language being used by the Hillary campaign and refer to his probe on her as a “matter” and not as an “investigation”?  How about questioning AG Lynch about her meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac, during that investigation, just a few days prior to James Comey’s now infamous and unprecedented unilateral press conference where he listed Hillary’s misconduct of handling classified emails, then recommended no indictments to DOJ.

Where were all the shape shifters back then?  Where were all the tough journalists looking to hold government accountable?  Where?!

About a week ago I was called by the BBC.  Yes, that international media monster, that reports with the oh, so cool accent.  This was a follow up of a 3 hour on site interview I gave them back in March about why I voted for Donald Trump.  I explained to them that we were tired of the sour hounds baying at every dim trail and junk game.  Well, I didn’t use the ‘coon hunting metaphor, but in my best English and manners, I told them Trump was a result of years of propagandist party loyal media.

This time the British gentleman requested a live radio interview about Mr. Trump pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Accord.  The time he gave didn’t work for me for the live phone conversation, but I agreed to do a recorded response earlier in the day.  That interview did not air, and I’ve not had any luck getting a link to it.  I’ll give an account of that conversation in a future post, but I should have gone live.

I was called again Thursday morning by a British lady who asked me if she could call me after the Comey testimony and get my reaction.  “Well”, I said, “I won’t be watching.”

“Oh, you have no interest?”, she queried in a lovely accent.  I responded, “Not that I don’t have the interest, Ma’am, but I’ve got to make a living. I’ve work to do.”

Well, I think she was aghast that I wasn’t going to wreck my work day to watch James Comey torpedo the Trump Administration.  I didn’t tell her I was weary of being slick treed.

I wound up giving that dog back to her original owner.

Man, it’s getting’ boggy down in here…
