Conscience of a Conservative
To the 10-20 million illegal immigrants now on American soil, the thought of acquiring U.S. citizenship must be the ultimate dream come true. No one can blame them for wanting to be here but being here illegally should not be rewarded. To each and every one of them they must all look at their benefactors in the Democratic Party as being the greatest people on Earth and to reciprocate one good deed for another a debt of honor. Unfortunately, most Americans are not looking at the problem this way. And certainly, most of our Republican leadership isn’t looking at it this way, either. But one group of people are most definitely looking at it that way, the Democrats. They are virtually salivating at the prospect of being the recipients of a debt of honor by 10-20 million grateful new voters. If such a thing should come to pass the Republican Party would become such a political minority that the Democrats would become the guaranteed winners of almost every Congressional election for decades to come.
Now we come to the feckless leadership of the Republican Party. The public image of Speaker of the House John Boehner weeping tells me more about his lack of leadership than anything. Then we have Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, who holds the title of Senate Minority Leader, who has said he will vote to end Cloture so that those who want to bring this issue up for a debate in the Senate can have discussion about it. Rather than stop the issue dead in its tracks by uniting in voting for cloture, a parliamentary move that the minority Republicans can use for their advantage, the wimpish Republicans will try to win some friends and influence some of those 10-20 million new voters who will gain citizenship should amnesty get passed. As a side note, Wikipedia has an interesting definition of the Cloture rule and it is certainly apropos to describe it as a “guillotine” as voting to end it will be the death of us all.
Cloture (/ˈkloʊtʃər/ KLOH-chər) is a motion or process in parliamentary procedure aimed at bringing debate to a quick end. It is also called closure or, informally, a guillotine. The cloture procedure originated in the French National Assembly, from which the name is taken. Clôture is French for “ending” or “conclusion”. It was introduced into the Parliament of the United Kingdom by William Ewart Gladstone to overcome the obstruction of the Irish nationalist party and was made permanent in 1887. It was subsequently adopted by the United States Senate and other legislatures.
The Democrats for decades have turned the majority of our Black population into a single solid voting block of paid followers with their Food Stamps, Welfare, free medical treatment and free cell phones, all of which under some situations could be viewed as bribery or vote buying. But the one thing that the Democrats have never done for the Black population is try to get them off Welfare or out of poverty. And why should they when the recipients of all the free stuff reciprocate by voting for more Democrats who in turn give them more free stuff. Down in Louisiana, a Democratic Party State Senator named Elbert Guillory has just switched over and changed his registration to Republican. That might not have been a significant news story except for the fact that Elbert Guillory is Black and he made a very uncomplimentary statement about his former Democratic Party when he explained why he became a Republican. Now if only the leadership of our Republican Party in Washington could read this and understand it and make some good use of it, we may keep our politics a viable two party system.
The Blaze reported this yesterday:
‘Free at Last’: La. State Senator Explains Why He Recently Left the ‘Government Plantation’ & Joined GOP in Powerful Video
Jun. 18, 2013 12:07am Jason Howerton
Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, formerly a Democrat, recently — and enthusiastically — joined the Republican party.
Weeks after announcing his bold move, Guillory has released a video explaining why he is now with the GOP. The powerful video is titled, “Why I Am a Republican.”
Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory Explains Why He Joined GOP
In the video, Guillory says it is the Republican Party that actually has the best interests of the black community in mind. He argues Democrats relentlessly push an agenda intended to exert control over blacks, not lift them out of poverty.
“You see, in recent history, the Democrat party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people,” Guillory said. “Somehow it has been forgotten that the Republican party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement, with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.”
The former Democrat explained that Frederick Douglass called Republicans the “party of freedom and progress.” He also pointed out that former Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and Republicans in Congress wrote the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.
“The Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow,” Guillory added. “It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.”
He went on: “You see, at the heart of liberalism, is the idea that only a great and powerful big Government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing: control. And they disguise this control as charity.”
Watch the video below:
Guillory claimed entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to “lift black Americans out of poverty,” but rather to control them.
Further, the welfare programs haven’t even helped blacks at all as they are still “as poor as they’ve ever been,” he argued.
“But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness, free from Government dependence, and free from Government control. Because to be truly free, is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny,” Guillory continued, pointing to God. “These are the ideas are at the core of Republican party… My brothers and sisters of the American community, please join me in abandoning the Government plantation and the party of disappointment.”
“So that we may all echo of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last,” he concluded.
Once our history began to be rewritten by the liberal news media and academics a lot of it got turned around and some of it got forgotten. Like the little fact that it was members of the Democratic Party who promoted Jim Crow in the South and were the founders of the Klu Klux Klan to keep the blacks under control. Or that Margaret Sanger, who was the founder of Planned Parenthood, believed that lighter-skinned races were superior to darker-skinned races, and admitted to speaking at KKK rallies, was an advocate of eugenics.
As Wikipedia mentions:
As part of her efforts to promote birth control, Sanger found common cause with proponents of eugenics, believing that they both sought to “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.” Sanger was a proponent of negative eugenics, which aims to improve human hereditary traits through social intervention by reducing reproduction by those considered unfit. Sanger’s eugenic policies included an exclusionary immigration policy, free access to birth control methods and full family planning autonomy for the able-minded, and compulsory segregation or sterilization for the profoundly retarded.
So while the Democratic Party is hardly a true friend of the Black population they certainly have no objections to using them. One can imagine how well they will prosper while using the newly minted citizens from Mexico who came here illegally looking for a better life. I have no objections to those illegal immigrants staying here as long as they pay taxes, but I do not want them to be given the right to vote. But if that can’t be done then they should be deported.

The greater Communist movement’s infiltration into public policy, public office, and government is nothing new. In fact it is a much needed factor in the successful transformation of an entire society. As Whitaker Chambers (Ex-Soviet Spy turned Soviet defector) had noted:
That power to influence policy has always been the ultimate purpose of the Communist Party’s infiltration. It was much more dangerous, and, as events have proved, much more difficult to detect, than espionage, which beside it is trivial, though the two go hand in hand. (Stalin’s Secret Agents)
Another interesting note in regards to the real intentions of those who still call themselves progressives, coming from another soviet spy by the name of Elizabeth Berkely.
Stand your ground, put on an air of injured innocence; your are not a Communist, just a ‘progressive’ whose record proves you have always fought for the rights of labor. (The Naked Communist p. 149)
The undeniable change we see taking place in our country today should be viewed through a much different lens than past generations. Some may blame it on a generational gap. You may even think with age comes wisdom and the younger generation will wise up someday, As the saying goes “If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart if you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain”. If only it were that simple. The disconnect we see is not by accident. The truth is, it is intentional.
It is not a secret and any dictator worth his salt knows the key to transforming a society is to gain control of the youth. Doing so gives the much needed advantage to change a society. Generation after generation then enter key positions in public office where they can effectively continue changing society based on what they have learned in college. Some may go on to be professors at universities (one recognizable “professor” would be Bill Ayers) where the cycle repeats itself.
Clever, “causes” such as social justice, socioeconomic equality, and women’s rights, give the illusion of fighting for worthy causes. The useful idiots that Lenin once spoke of are more than willing to fight for these oh so noble causes. Lets face it, when you are young you want to “change the world;” only problem is they truly have no idea what they are changing it to. Its not purely coincidental that people such as Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dorn, Frances Fox Piven, Mark Rudd, and the recently released Kathy Boudin all work in the field of education. These are radicals through and through and have every intention of continuing their glorious “revolution” by using your children. Lenin once said, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
So how does one go about changing a society? One way is to foment a violent revolution; another is a slow “progressive” transformation. The later of the two is what has been in play for decades now.
A Marxist philosopher by the name of Antonio Gramsci realized no thinking person would just roll over and submit to a system that is going to enslave him. Rather, he believed one could, through years, if not decades, slowly subvert a culture in which the public could be influenced into a Marxist ideology. In his deluded idea of someday achieving an egalitarian utopia he wanted the victims to actually enjoy being a party to a collective and a repressive regime.
Gramsci believed that if Communism achieved “mastery of human consciousness,” then labor camps and mass murder would be unnecessary. How does an ideology gain such mastery over patterns of thought inculcated by cultures for hundreds of years? Mastery over the consciousness of the great mass of people would be attained, Gramsci contended, if Communists or their sympathizers gained control of the organs of culture — churches, education, newspapers, magazines, the electronic media, serious literature, music, the visual arts, and so on. By winning “cultural hegemony,” to use Gramsci’s own term, Communism would control the deepest wellsprings of human thought and imagination. One need not even control all of the information itself if one can gain control over the minds that assimilate that information. Under such conditions, serious opposition disappears since men are no longer capable of grasping the arguments of Marxism’s opponents. Men will indeed “love their servitude,” and will not even realize that it is servitude.
One cannot deny patience and time are key components needed to change a once moral society into one that is unrecognizable as American. To understand how this has happened one must understand the role of the Frankfort School.
Born in 1923, a group of determined Germans devised a plan to subvert Western culture and rot it from within.
When Hitler came to power, the Institute was closed and its members, by various routes, fled to the United States and migrated to major US universities—Columbia, Princeton, Brandeis, and California at Berkeley.
Here are some of their stated goals a bit about how they were to be achieved.
1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking
7. Emptying of churches
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family
One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud’s idea of ‘pansexualism’ – the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:
• attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children.
• abolish differences in the education of boys and girls
• abolish all forms of male dominance – hence the presence of women in the armed forces
• declare women to be an ‘oppressed class’ and men as ‘oppressors’
Munzenberg summed up the Frankfurt School’s long-term operation thus: ‘We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks.’
The School believed there were two types of revolution: (a) political and (b) cultural. Cultural revolution demolishes from within. ‘Modern forms of subjection are marked by mildness.’ They saw it as a long-term project and kept their sights clearly focused on the family, education, media, sex and popular culture.
CatholicInsight.com, cited via http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2216734/posts
The stated goals speak volumes as to how far they have come. All one really needs to do is take a look at the culture we are living in. Example after example can be found of how society has become corrupted.
Any Communist knows that a moral, virtuous society produces obstacles that must be overcome. Therefore, God, family, and love of Country have to be eliminated. Lets face it, if you have an allegiance to God and not government, that is going to create a problem for any committed Communist regime.
We have the imperative task today of learning from history and not just for ourselves but for our children. We will one day look back on what we see taking place today and wonder why we did not do more. This has so often been the case throughout so many periods in history. We have, without a doubt, been fed small doses of socialism for years. Socialism is just a vehicle to communism, which in turn will ultimately lead to a totalitarian system.
There has never been a time in history where we have the technology to literally track every person on earth. Learn from history, listen to those who have studied history and have tried to wake people up for years. Future generations will want to know the truth.

Within driving distance of D.C.?
Don’t look back on it knowing you could have gone and missed it.
Just go and be pleased with yourself — even if it isn’t St. Crispin’s Day.
As Jenny Beth Martin said in the newer video:
We need to show Congress, show the president, show the IRS and any other government agency that’s abusing their powers, that we’re not going to take it.
So, we need to stand up with everyone who is targeted and we need to stand up for our own freedom and for the freedom of the next generation.
PS: Sometimes I think we have too many tags after our articles. So, I won’t add “jackbooted thugs.” Many who come out of public education don’t know what jackboots are — or know jack, at all. But we have to teach them jack and that’s what this is all about.

*** Warning: Brutally, horrifically graphic.
So powerful… I am crossposting in full.
From: The Blaze
Today, inside, they dedicated a new statue of another American giant, Fredrick Douglas – a man born into slavery, but who knew instinctively that he was not born a slave. No man is. We all know this. We all know that each man and woman, everywhere, is born free. It is other men that enslave them. And to accomplish this takes a mighty effort. You must intimidate, brutalize, terrorize, belittle, degrade and make sure they don’t understand how to question and think critically.
To keep a man a slave you do much the same as the cruel circus masters did to the elephant around the turn of last century. Clamp heavy chains around their legs and stake them to the ground. Then beat and terrorize them. After a while, you no longer even have to stake the chain, the elephant gives up and just the mere rattle of the chain convinces the elephant there is no hope, so they give up and do what ever it is the circus requires.
Fredrick Douglas was lucky enough to live in a house where he was taught to read, write and think. He knew God did not make men masters over others. Nor did he ever intend any man to impose unrighteous dominion over another man or beast. It is time we remind ourselves of this truth again and begin to rise up against the intimidation before the handful of peanuts from our new political circus masters is considered a kindness and not the symbol of evil cruelty.
In the building behind me, they are now plotting a new war with Syria. This will bring death and destruction the world over. We are told that we need to pick sides and arm those who are so far down the scale of decency that even Vladimir Putin asked Americans if they even knew that those we are arming have literally eaten their enemies on the battle field. The fact that he even needed to ask that question, and that most have never even seen the video of the commander of the rebel troops on TV engaging in this ungodly horror, is an indictment of our government officials and our media.
Are we even worth defending anymore? Who are we? And will we even notice or care when the chain is finally snapped around our legs?
What will be written about us? The greatest generation has passed. We who are historians will watch.
Will it be said that none called for justice, not one pleaded for truth? They trusted in vanity and spoke lies. They conceived mischief and brought forth iniquity.
What is it we even believe as a people anymore? Where did we get these ideas that now seem so popular?
Our forbears came to these shores not for free stuff, but for freedom. The chance to make their own way, create a different life, to not be who others deemed them to be, but what they believed they could be. They came here because they knew that God made them free to make their own way in life. And they wanted to serve him in the way they believed, not as they were told.
But how many care? And, of those who do care, how many really still believe?
Some things are worth believing in: That the little guy can make it, every single life has value and is worth living, that honor and integrity do matter, that justice will prevail – if not in this life – then the next, and God does exist and what we do in our lives matters.
It is the meek and the humble that inherit the earth. Have we forgotten?
We have declared ourselves masters of the earth, spread our troops all over the world, taught the world how to do banking like we do it here in America, while we can’t even master our own homes, protect our neighborhood and simply balance a check book. How grotesque we must appear to those looking in.
I for one still believe in the silly notion of truth, justice and the American way. Since our founding, a good percentage of our fellow citizens closed their eyes to the civil rights of all Americans. They were okay, they didn’t want to think of the bad things going on, they were busy, it didn’t affect them, it couldn’t be that bad, they were just one person and, after all, what could they do about it anyway?
Nothing has changed, except the chairs at the table.
Someone has always been on the losing end of the stick of power. Blacks are the most obvious, the Chinese, the native American, but let’s not forget the Irish, the Catholics, the Mormons, the Jews and now it seems all those of faith that will not conform or do not have special access like the radicalized Muslim Brotherhood and her allies such as CAIR.
For those that think men make progress collectively, they couldn’t be more wrong. We are redeemed one man at a time. There is no “family pass” ticket or park hopping pass to life. One ticket, one life at a time. This is why man loses one target only to find another. From the blacks to the Irish, Atheists to Christians.
