California Socialist Wants to Take Your Guns, Land and Liberty – All Part of “Agenda 21″

Yes America, your socialists do want to take your guns and your land, and herd you into little beehive-like urban communities, so they can make you happy forever more.

All over America… communists, socialists and Marxists have been leading the charge for “gun control.”

A case in point occurred in Harlem on March 21st, where “more than 2,000 predominantly Black and Latino working people gathered on Adam Clayton Powell Blvd… in a militant protest against gun violence.”

The organizer of that event was Leslie Cagan, a life-long pro-Cuban communist and leading “peace” activist.

Another Marxist leading the charge to destroy American liberty is a Democrat member of the California State Legislature, representing, the 14th Assembly District (which includes Berkeley), Nancy Skinner.

In January, Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner unveiled her bill to crack down on guns or ammunition.

Assembly Bill 48 would require sellers of ammunition to be licensed and for purchasers to show identification. All sales would be reported to the Department of Justice.

The Department of Justice would be required under AB 48 to notify local law enforcement of large-quantity purchases over a five-day period by an individual who is not a peace officer.

AB 48 also would ban the manufacture, sale or import of any device that enables a gun to fire more than 10 rounds at one time.

While nominally a Democrat, Nancy Skinner has also been a member of the US’ largest Marxist organization, the pro-Gramsci communists of Democratic Socialists of America.

Skinner is a veteran of an ’80s trip to Marxist-Leninist Nicaragua. She has also worked for pro-communist California congresswoman Barbara Lee.

But Skinner has mainly used environmentalism to push her socialism.

A “nationally renowned leader in the fight against global warming,” Nancy Skinner founded ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, an organization “dedicated to helping local governments around the world become environmental leaders.” As Executive Director of ICLEI’s U.S. office, Skinner launched the Cities for Climate Protection program — the “US movement of Mayors and cities working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that now involves over 500 U.S. cities and counties.”

ICLEI of course is the main promoter of “Agenda 21,” the United Nations’ (read Russian), plan to de-industrialize America and drive the vast bulk of your rural population into easily manged urban population centers.

As U.S. Director of The Climate Group, a London based organization, Nancy Skinner worked with Fortune 500 companies, clean tech industries and state and national leaders to pass groundbreaking legislation such as California’s global warming bill AB 32.

She also organized the July 2006 Climate & Energy Roundtable with Governor Schwarzenegger, Prime Minister Tony Blair and fellow radical, former California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and 15 Fortune 500 CEOs, that paved the way for Governor Schwarzenegger’s signing of AB 32.

In 2004, Nancy Skinner brought global warming to the attention of the National Association of State Insurance Commissioners and was instrumental in NAIC’s establishment of an Executive Task Force on Insurance and Climate Change. Last year the NAIC Task Force released a white paper on the Potential Impact of Climate Change on Insurance Regulation and is currently undertaking a Climate Risk Disclosure Survey for insurance firms operating in the US.

Nancy Skinner also served on the California Energy Commission’s Climate Change Advisory Committee and then San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s Clean Technology Task Force.

So why does Nancy Skinner want to take your guns? A misguided attempt to save you from criminals?

Or is it just a another logical step on the socialist road?

If you have guns, you’re hard to control. People like Nancy Skinner don’t like people who do not like to be controlled.

Way too messy.

Nancy Skinner and her thousands of comrades have a plan for your life. To get you where you’re too stupid enough to see where you need to go, they’re going to have to take your guns. They cannot leave you with the ability to resist their enlightened plans. This is for your own good.

People control. That’s what this is all about. Nothing more, nothing less.


The Easter Mythology of Modern Progressivism

By: Mark Musser
Gulag Bound

American Thinker

Modern progressivism, belief in human progress, various brands of socialism, and even communism itself are all steeped in a modern philosophy of history that is rooted in the Judeo-Christian apocalyptic tradition. Unlike the Greco-Roman world, which believed that history was either strictly secular or inextricably bound up with pagan notions of Eternal Return reflecting the circular cycles of nature, many socialist and political progressives often presume that the historical future itself is linear, eschatological, redemptive, and utopian.

In Christian theology, eschatology means the study of the last things which views history as linear process rushing toward an apocalypse of final judgment and salvation. Strangely enough, modern progressivism believes likewise, albeit dressed up in secular terminology and political evolutionary jargon.

Plato’s Republic (360 B.C.) may have been viewed as a utopian ideal, but the classical mind never believed that the historical process itself was heading towards a fulfillment of that particular goal. Thus, while modern leftists routinely mock the Judeo-Christian apocalypse, prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments, which promises an eschatological goal of ultimate judgment and salvation, they remain completely unaware how they themselves are false prophets of what can easily be characterized as secular apocalypticism and/or millenarianism. Millenarianism is the belief of many Christians that at the end of history, there will be a Messianic utopian kingdom set up on the earth after the Second Coming of Christ before the eternal state (Revelation 19-22).


Karl Marx prophesied a future utopian state of communistic humanism free from all class divisions at the end of history after a violent eschatological battle with capitalism. National Socialism predicted a millennial 1,000-year Reich based on keeping Nature’s biological evolutionary laws of racial hygiene. More contemporary forms of socialism are less ominous, but they still hubristically believe in the gradual and progressive perfectibility of man. Today, the United Nations is propagating its own eschatological Millennium goals where poverty will end, hunger will stop, universal education will be provided, the sexes will be equalized, and peaceful global partnerships will be created together with a green utopia of environmental sustainability.

Paradoxically, while many Protestants were strongly developing apocalyptic millennial views during the 1800’s on a scale not before seen in church history, the political left was writing up their own eschatological plan for human history on a parallel secular track. In particular, Marxists and socialists hotwired political science with eschatology by secularizing the Judeo-Christian Apocalypse. Apocalyptic prophecies were essentially ripped out of their biblical context and then applied to an ever-increasing variety of secular events so that much of its social justice was based on a political millennialism loaded with eschatological self-righteousness.

Beginning with the French Revolution (1787-99), the contrast between scientific technological progress on the one hand, and a dark background of social oppression on the other hand, began to strongly insinuate itself into the modern mind. Teachers, professors, and leaders of modern academia became increasingly preoccupied with social evil throughout the 1800s. As such, they began shifting their reasoning powers from the natural sciences to the social and/or political sciences. More critical, since they believed that social evil was not due to the inherent sinfulness of man, it must exist somewhere within the unequal political relationships of society. The social conditions of society, therefore, needed to be changed — and for revolutionaries like Marx, Lenin, and the National Socialists, the sooner the better. Remarkably, the technological progress of the natural sciences bred more and more discontentment among social and political scientists.


Such leftist passions for secular redemption have led to insoluble political burdens which continue to haunt the modern mindset as ideologues, policy analysts, and politicians foist upon unsuspecting populaces the full crushing weight of their apocalyptic concerns. One of the most glaring examples of modern secular eschatology is where environmental preachers prophesy a global warming apocalypse that is threatening the entire planet with floodwaters not seen since Noah’s Flood. Modern environmentalists have managed to profane the apocalypse by trying to saddle governments and their peoples with suffocating burdens and responsibilities that can never be resolved this side of the grave.

Gulag Archipelago

The practice of horrific social engineering schemes by Communists and Marxists turned the 20th century into one gigantic socialist slaughterhouse that affected the lives of hundreds of millions of people, not to mention the virtual slavery left behind in the lives of those who were not sacrificed. By taking salvation into their own secular hands, they tried to convert history itself into an evolutionary forum of political science in which utopian man will develop himself into an entirely new man not beset by limiting or unfavorable social circumstances that once was known as the Fall of mankind. Progressivism tried to sow utopia but reaped catastrophe instead.

Mixing political science with eschatology invariably leads to science fiction. Modern progressivism has willfully confused mundane evolutionary changes that historically occur within societies with various forms of political salvation. As such, they are religiously and blindly devoting themselves to political myths that they themselves will never be able to enjoy. Marxism, socialism, and environmentalism are apocalyptic myths of the modern leftist imagination. Yet the debt incurred by their dreams is billowing up into a potential financial Armageddon.

Furthermore, the political disillusionments and grave disappointments many Marxists, socialists, and environmentalists often complain about cannot be ameliorated by a future utopian state, as they so often presume. The suffering of the past is already a historical fact that cries out for justice just as much as any future generation that follows it. Worse, secular eschatology invariably degrades all previous generations to the status of a mere means to a future utopian end that virtually none of its peoples will ever be able to share in for the simple reason they were born at the wrong time. Secularism and utopian social justice therefore cannot be reconciled. Such a mixture is contradicted and limited by its own secularization.

In his critical essay, “Philosophies of History,” Rolf Gruner aptly concludes, “A man who suffers here and now cannot be consoled by being told that his misery serves a purpose in that it plays its necessary part in ensuring a glorious future for generations still to come. What matters to him is his life, and perhaps that of some of his contemporaries and immediate successors, not the life of people who will be born when he has been long dead; why should he have any interest in being a means to their happiness or perfection? In this respect traditional Christianity is on much stronger ground … for according to its teaching each individual has access to a state of bliss in a future life to which his suffering in this life is essentially related.”

The Bible specifically prophesies a future Messianic and/or heavenly Kingdom of eschatological social justice precisely because it presumes and predicts the resurrection of the dead. Without the resurrection of the dead, a hopeful goal-orientated redemptive view of history is utter nonsense — something which the classical world would have well understood. Modern progressivism and eschatology are a confusion of categories and contradiction of terms to which Winston Churchill once quipped, “There are two places only where socialism will work; in heaven where it is not needed, and in hell where they already have it.”

Mark is also the author of two books, Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust, which has been recently expanded, updated, and republished, and then Wrath or Rest: Saints in the Hands of an Angry God, a commentary focusing on the warning passages in the book of Hebrews.


Google Honors Cesar Chavez on Easter

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Feeling lucky comrade? It’s exactly what you would expect from Google, whose motto is “Don’t be evil.” If they ever meant that, they failed miserably as proven by today’s home page which honors Socialist Cesar Chavez on Easter Sunday. It is a slap in the face to every Christian on the planet and is just downright evilly blasphemous. Google has been known for dissing the Founder’s birthdays and American history in favor of Marxist ideals and Islamic tradition. This time, they really let their mask fall.

Take a trip down Marxist memory lane to Veteran’s Day 2010:

TIME Newsfeed – Veteran’s Day 2010

Here is a link to Google’s Doodles. Let’s just say it is enlightening.

At least Bing was not as bad – they displayed a beautiful picture of Ukrainian Easter Eggs for their chosen page today. I can live with that – but an avowed Alinsky Socialist who was honored by our Marxist president? That just pisses me off. I’m not the only one either.

The late Cesar Chavez was a labor organizer who founded the United Farm Workers Union. President Barack Obama released a statement in 2011 proclaiming March 31st “Cesar Chavez Day,” declaring, “I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor Cesar Chavez’s enduring legacy.” It’s his 86th birthday and all the Marxists are celebrating one of the premier community organizers of their lifetimes.

Some background on Cesar Chavez is in order here:

The late United Farm Workers leader was trained by the famous Chicago agitator, Saul Alinsky. Obama’s mentor and idol. Marxists of a feather…


In 1947, Saul Alinsky hired Fred Ross, an experienced organizer among California’s migrant farmworkers. Ross built the Community Service Organization in several cities, mostly among Latinos, recruiting new members and identifying potential leaders through house meetings and one-on-one conversations. In San Jose, California, one of the people Ross recruited was César Chávez, whom Ross hired and trained as an organizer. Chávez would later adopt these organizing ideas in starting the United Farm Workers union.

Chavez linked arms with Communist Party USA members such as Bert Corona. He was closely tied to Democratic Socialists of America as well.

New Zeal:

Trained for several years in Chicago, by the great agitator Saul Alinsky, an inspiration to DSA, Hillary Clinton and Obama himself, Cesar Chavez worked with communists and socialists his entire career.

Chavez marched under the infamous slogan “Si se puede!” – later translated into English to become Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan “Yes we can!” Many of the same radicals that marched with Chavez wound up working with Barack Obama. An identical Marxist ideology was carried forward into the Obama Administration. Among the biggest names in the Alinsky/communist/socialist movement include former Obama Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, DSA icon Dolores Huerta and Los Angeles Mayor Anthony Villaraigosa. California’s 32nd District Rep. Judy Chu also has Chavez ties and was a long-time affiliate of the now defunct Communist Workers Party.

I have long said that if you can, don’t use Google. Use Bing or another search engine. Google is so prevalent though, it is difficult to do this. If you are a Christian or a Conservative Constitutionalist, your principles may dictate that you find a way to get away from this Marxist propaganda tool that is being wielded by Obama and his cronies.

Some will say Google is doing this just to get attention. No, they don’t need the attention. This is who they are. Google has only once honored Easter and that was in 2000. Must have been a slow year for Marxists.

Glenn Beck got it right as so many did on Twitchy:

So, let me get this straight… Google, which is a propaganda arm for Obama, celebrates a socialist radical and disses Easter and the Resurrection. That is Google’s right and it is our right to tell them to pound sand and go elsewhere. Bing is looking better and better these days.

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart had this to say:

This is not the first time that Google has chosen to honor leftists over tradition. Back on July 4, Google plastered the words “This Land Was Made For You And Me” in its logo, in honor of Communist fellow-traveler Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land. On Christmas, Google featured a holiday-themed logo that popped up this window: “Happy Holidays from Google!”

Google can, and likely will switch out to an Easter logo sometime today. But as millions of Christians return home from Easter vigil on the holiest day of their calendar, they are currently being greeted by Cesar Chavez in a white suit.

Remember, Obama, the Department of Education and the Common Core Standards are teaching in our schools that Cesar Chavez is a “hero of the people.” Only if you are Marxist is this true. And now you see the U.S. government in true fascist style, place ideologues over faith. Every time I see pictures such as Cesar Chavez or more commonly Barack Obama’s arrogant visage, I see snapshots of Stalin, Mao, Lenin and Hitler in my mind’s eye. The faces have changed, but not the Google evil message.
