Democrat Marxist Congressmen Arrested Outside Trump Tower For Protesting DACA [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Reps. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) were arrested today sitting in the street outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan. Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) was also taken into custody. All three are die-hard Marxists and as racist as they come. They were busted for civil disobedience.

Why would communist Democratic Congressmen make fools of themselves like this? Because of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals that was brought into being unconstitutionally by Barack Obama. Which is just hysterical because as far as I can tell and as much as I hate to say it, it looks like President Trump is in favor of cementing DACA. He discontinued it with a six-month rider, telling Congress to fix it, not do away with it. Unless of course, they are demanding all 11 million illegal aliens get to stay and are granted Amnesty. That’s what the Democrats really want. That and chain migration.

A number of members of Congress were present for the protest. As I understand it, others were arrested as well. Police also arrested New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. A spokesman for Gutierrez’ office confirmed his arrest. Grijalva’s would not return comment on the matter. This protest comes as President Trump was addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations. He was warning them about the threat of North Korea and that the US would take them out if we have to. I hope that is true.

The rally was promoted as being by “immigrants rights activists” and members of Congress. In other words, Mexican nationalists, radical revolutionaries and communists. Gutierrez made a statement: “We’re taking the necessary steps to make it clear to President Trump, the Republicans and the Democrats that we will continue this peaceful fight for DREAMers and immigrants as long as it takes to enact legislation and put DREAMers in a safe place. A few congressmen and elected-officials gathering in front of Trump Tower doesn’t mean much if it is not backed up by the grassroots and allies and today we are standing with diverse allies to make sure Congress and the President do more than just talk about solutions, they actually follow through with action.”

“We are here to defend our immigrant communities,” Mark-Viverito said before they were arrested. She was then put in plastic handcuffs and loaded into a Department of Correction bus with other protesters. “We don’t want families to be divided,” she said. “Trump’s policy goes against what the majority of this nation supports and believes in. It goes against our values.”

Advocacy groups including United for Fair Housing, Make the Road New York, New York Communities for Change, Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) and Make the Road New Jersey were in attendance at the rally as well. It was well-organized. Aren’t they all? However, only ten people sat down in front of Trump Tower. All were arrested… all were Democrats. Four of them were well known politicians. They called on Congress to pass the DREAM Act — which would offer legal status to people brought to the United States illegally as children — without the added border security expected to be included in a deal between Trump and Congressional Democrats.

“They deserve to stay in America. They are workers, students, soldiers in our armed forces,” Espaillat said. Democrats get arrested rather frequently for publicity. It’s the communist way. Bill de Blasio did it while running for mayor in New York to protest the closure of Long Island College Hospital, which ended up closing after he took office. Natalia Aristizabal of the group Make the Road New York said Congress should not offer the extra cash for border security that Democratic leaders have agreed to in exchange for shielding the young immigrants. “We do not want enforcement. We do not want to put the broader immigrant community in jeopardy,” she said. In other words, screw the rule of law.

“Since you have refused to leave the roadway, you will be placed under arrest on the charge of disorderly conduct,” said an NYPD loudspeaker announcement before the group was arrested. Grijalva said “all acts of pressure are appropriate right now” in defense of the thousands of immigrants, commonly referred to as DREAMers. That’s a call for violence in the streets by the way. It’s a rallying cry for revolution.

Would you say that again?

By: T F Stern | Self-Educated American

In recent news the State of Oregon is leading the way down yet another slippery slope, this time with free abortions on demand for anyone, including illegal aliens.  It’s been presented as a ‘women’s health issue’; but therein lies the deception, and that deception has been successful as it alters the discussion and removes any consideration for constitutional rights of the individual being aborted.

An article written by Christina Cauterucci praised the ambitious legislative package.

“On Wednesday, the Oregon state legislature joined the ranks of states preparing for the worst by passing the Reproductive Health Equity Act. If signed by the very pro-woman Gov. Kate Brown, the bill will enshrine the right to abortion care in state law, a first for Oregon. It also requires insurers in the state to cover contraception, vasectomies, prenatal and postpartum care, abortion care, screenings for reproductive cancers and STIs, and counseling for survivors of domestic violence. All would be completely covered at no cost to patients, even if the ACA were repealed, with some federally mandated exceptions for churches and religious groups.”

Let’s dissect that statement and attempt to understand the mindset of those who have jumped on board the Reproductive Health Equity Act; one passed while ‘preparing for the worst’.

What is the worst?  Is it the idea that individuals might be held accountable for their actions both morally and financially?  Morality shouldn’t be an issue; we got rid of that years ago…

Some argue that rape victims who get pregnant should have access to abortions as do women who believe they’re carrying a deformed fetus or are in a pregnancy which is life threatening (abortion is always life threatening to the individual being aborted) as justification for the entire premise of abortion on demand.

Here’s an interesting statistic regarding women seeking abortions:

“95% of abortions are done as birth control, 1% are done because of rape/incest, 1% because of fetal abnormalities, and 3% due to the mother’s health problems.”

The moral structure of our society has been altered in favor of murdering millions of defenseless individuals, depriving them of their inalienable right to life and all the other protections afforded under our constitutional republican form of government…and it’s all based on a lie; that’s right, the lie that abortion is a Women’s Health Issue when in fact 95% of lives aborted are little more than ‘after the fact contraception choices’ made to erase poor life style choices.

The socialist movement has now mandated a wide range of defined (altered the definition of words) Women’s Health Issue expenses be paid by insurance companies, which will include any government facilities paid for with taxpayer dollars.

Free, in their mind, means the recipient of goods and services no longer has to be concerned with earning enough money to pay for their incurred debts; instead, those inconsequential burdens are passed along to the State.

All these goods and services are now ‘Free’ because the State has and endless supply.  Has anyone ever explained the word ‘Free’ to those pushing socialism?  Those having to perform or provide these goods and services no longer are free to decide how to spend their efforts or money; that decision has been made by the State.

Well where does the State get all that money?  That’s right; the Evil Rich must pay for stealing from the undeserving poor.

Oregon has taken a large step towards abandoning reason in favor of satisfying those who demand the pipe dream of ‘free services for all’; neglecting to recognize there never was and never will be a free ride.  Somebody has to pay and these folks are willing to slap it on the Evil Rich who, for the most part must have obtained their ill gotten gain because of White Privilege.  This doesn’t even address moral issues; dang, I forgot we’ve already done away with morality.

We have arrived at a point in our nation’s evolution where Social Justice  is considered an equal to Due Process.

“Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all legal rights that are owed to a person. Due process balances the power of law of the land and protects the individual person from it. When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due process violation, which offends the rule of law.”

Socialists, progressives, communists, call them what you will; but they don’t respect individual rights or the implication that such rights come from God.  It is their intention to do away with such antique philosophies and give the State free reign to run everyone’s lives.

Police Arrest 80 Rioters In Third Night Of St. Louis Unrest After Officer’s acquittal [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

80 people were arrested during a third night of rioting in downtown St. Louis, following outrage over a white police officer being acquitted in the shooting death of a black man. A man who was fleeing said officer. Officer Jason Stockley was acquitted in the killing of a 24 year-old man six years ago. It doesn’t matter to Black Lives Matter that it was a justified shooting… they are in a rage because it was a white cop killing a black man.

Police officers in riot-gear stood off against militant activists. The media keeps calling what happened, mostly peaceful, but it sure doesn’t look that way to me. One reporter came very close to being beat to death by a mob of these thugs. If one of the masked people hadn’t let him away and fended the mob off, it could of ended very badly. It seems as though the violence ratchets up after the sun goes down. And then things get vicious and strange. There were violent outbursts and police shouted down protesters with their own chants. “Whose streets, our streets,” police officers were heard bellowing — twice — in one video.

As protesters were pepper-sprayed, you could hear and see them coughing and gagging on it. Then they were dragged away in mass arrests. St. Louis Metropolitan Police Chief Lawrence O’Toole blamed the chaotic evening on a “group of criminals,” while Mayor Lyda Krewson described them as “agitators” who stuck around after the initial protest ended. Funny, neither laid this at the feet of Black Lives Matter or Antifa where it belongs. Go figure.

One bicycle cop was injured in the confrontation. “We are closed in on all four sides now I have no idea where people are supposed to go. People freaking out,” tweeted Post-Dispatch journalist Mike Faulk. He was accidentally arrested with all the others that were rioting. There was a memorable pic where Faulk had his press badge on and his hands were secured behind his back while he was placed under arrest. Heck of a way to get a story.

The rioting came to a head after an unmarked police car startled protesters by driving down the street. It went through a crowd of people… in reverse. Video that was shared by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department shows a ton of people darting out of the blue Impala’s wild path. The officer in the unmarked police car blamed protesters for his unconventional escape. Road closures blocked him from going forward and protesters were “moving in a threatening manner” from behind. That’s when he backed through the crowd. No one got hurt.

The gathering crowd had marched toward the site of a traffic stop around 7 pm and watched as police arrested two people, one suspected of assault and another of making terrorist threats. Inside that car, police officers found three guns. Some moron was hurling rocks at police officers and was arrested for that too.

Antifa was there as well waving red and black flags, reportedly emblazoned with the Anonymous logo. That was probably the Antifa logo, but whatever. The rioters were spraying officers with some kind of mystery chemical. Rioters destroyed foliage, cars, store fronts, smashed windows, etc. Two others were arrested late Sunday after a speeding car smashed into another vehicle. Inside of the vehicles, police found drugs, masks and an assault-style rifle.

You have two primary groups leading the riots in St. Louis… Black Lives Matter and Antifa. I’m not sure how long this will go on, but there will always be another event that draws these people from one city to the next. I look forward to my friend Trevor Loudon’s film on Antifa, which will be released soon. They should both be labeled as terrorist groups.

Exposing the Traitors in the Deep State

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

The comical publication the Onion ran a special volume, Homeland Insecurity, with the headline, “Run for Your Lives.” I thought of that in the wake of the decision by hard-liners Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka to voluntarily leave the White House rather than continue to fight for rational pro-American policies in the Trump Administration against what has been called the Deep State.

In their cases, Trump didn’t have to say “you’re fired.” They quit.

Sadly, Trump, the elected president, may be the next to go.

Bannon quit and went on the CBS “60 Minutes” show, where he vented on a variety of issues, ranging from Trump’s decision to fire FBI director James Comey to the Catholic Church’s pandering to illegal aliens. Sebastian Gorka quit and has now appeared on a special Judicial Watch on-line presentation on the “Deep State,” where he basically waved the white flag of surrender in the face of opposition to him and his appointments.

Bannon and Gorka apparently lost a turf war to Egyptian-American Dina Powell, an Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy. Powell has her detractors, having been labeled a “Swamp Creature” by the Center for Security Policy and linked to Obama’s adviser Valerie Jarrett and Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The Deep State, whatever that is, won. These were big scalps. Bannon was Assistant to the President and Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor while Gorka was Deputy Assistant to the President and Strategist.

Gorka wrote a letter of resignation publicized by Bannon’s Breitbart News. But he has gone further in his criticism. As reported by The Daily Caller, Gorka said on the Judicial Watch presentation that three of his picks for working under him at the White House were blocked by an “unnamed sister agency.” But he didn’t name this agency. The publication said that Gorka fingered “bureaucrats” as believing that “they can ignore orders from the White House, as illustrated by the drastic increase in national security leaks under the Trump administration.” But those bureaucrats were not named.

This is a problem for Trump supporters. Gorka leaves the White House, supposedly to be able to speak freely about the Deep State, and he still won’t name names. Is he scared? Do they have blackmail material? What’s going on when “Democracy dies in darkness,” as the Washington Post motto proclaims?

What we know is that the Deep State is apparently so deep that those who saw it up close, Bannon and Gorka, didn’t want to stay and fight it. The Deep State must be something like “IT” from the Stephen King novel and the movie. What happened? Are they telling us that the Deep State is so deep that it can force people out of the White House? If so, why would they stop with Bannon and Gorka? Has democracy died in darkness?

Sensing his days are numbered, Trump is demonstrating that he is more of a lover than a fighter.

“He likes us!” is what Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (NY) said about his cordial meeting with President Trump. The mutual admiration society was a shocker to those who thought Trump was going to fight and prevail against his political enemies.

However, those who thought Trump was a fighter have been very disappointed. Consider:

  • He has deferred to the courts on the matter of his constitutional and legal authority to control immigration, legal and illegal.
  • He is flip-flopping on the matter of legal status or amnesty for the illegal aliens known as dreamers and the timing for construction of a border wall.
  • He has not done anything to shoot down North Korean missiles directed at America or its allies, despite his tough talk and posturing.
  • He condemns the Russia-gate Special Counsel investigation as a witch hunt, but has not fired the witch hunter.
  • He said he wanted to drain the swamp, but his Justice Department won’t investigate the IRS for its targeting of Tea Party groups.
  • He said he would revoke Obama’s Iran deal for nuclear weapons but hasn’t done so.
  • He said he would break up the Big Media high tech companies, but has failed to do so.

Bannon and Gorka decided to voluntarily leave the Trump White House rather than fight for their beliefs. Other Trump staffers have been maneuvered into forced resignations or purged outright.

One of them is Trump’s original National Security Adviser, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, who was under surveillance by outgoing Obama officials. Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was known for his criticism of President Obama for failing to identify radical Islamists as the enemy. Flynn was also openly critical of Obama Administration support for Jihadists in Syria, a policy that got as many as 400,000 people killed when Russia intervened militarily with no adequate U.S. response.

Since Flynn’s departure under pressure from Deep State leaks, Trump has toed the line, giving remarks on the anniversary of 9/11 that, like Obama, failed to name the enemy. He talks tough about North Korea and Iran but does nothing.

Perhaps Flynn’s security clearance forms were not properly filled out. Perhaps he didn’t disclose all of the details of his private conversations with others. But that’s less important than the illegal surveillance that got him into trouble and was leaked to the Washington Post. These are the leaks Gorka is talking about. But rather than fight the battle from the inside, Gorka abandoned ship and now does Internet TV shows.

Flynn was forced out because he had dared to name America’s enemies and he wanted to purge the Obama holdovers and other corrupt officials. He is the co-author of an excellent book identifying America’s enemies as Russia, China and radical Islam, in addition to North Korea, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela and Nicaragua. The book is titled, The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies.

When Trump’s own people are running out the door, you know we are in “deep” trouble. “Run for your lives” seems to be the new foreign policy strategy of the Trump Administration.

So why keep up the pretense that Trump is in any real sense the president?

It looks like the Deep State works for America’s enemies. But who has the courage to expose the traitors in our midst?

In going to the United Nations on Tuesday, Trump has to show his guts by telling the U.N. that its handling of North Korea is only the latest example of its ineffectiveness.

Protecting America’s sovereignty, which Trump campaigned on, means a total and complete withdrawal from the U.N. It’s time to pull out from “The House that Hiss Built,” referring to Soviet spy and State Department employee Alger Hiss. Then, expose the traitors in the Deep State.

The sooner the better. Democracy dies in darkness and hangs in the balance.

The Mistake of Pandering to Antifa/Black Lives Matter

By: Lloyd Marcus

I cringed when I heard fellow black conservatives who I respect on TV saying that while they condemn the violent behavior of Antifa/Black Lives Matter some of their grievances against America are warranted. I wanted to scream at my TV, “Hogwash!”

These conservative blacks on TV are merely trying to create peace and civility by agreeing with some of the bogus accusations of racism dreamed up by Leftist intellectuals. They are also trying to prove they are not Uncle Toms. I think it is a huge mistake to pander to lies about America; acting as though very little has changed racially since the 1950’s.

As a black person, I know the Black Code. It is the same as what Michael Corleone said to his brother Fredo, “Don’t ever take sides against the family. Ever!” Many blacks and Leftists believe to qualify as an authentic black American, one must harbor a deep seated resentment against white America.

Watching black conservatives on TV saying Antifa/Black Lives Matter have some legit grievances regarding white privilege, I found myself scratching my head. For the life of me, I have no idea what millennial blacks who have never suffered a moment of “real” racism in their lives are so enraged about; whining, complaining and destroying property.

Let’s get real folks. Since the election of Obama, being black is in vogue like never before. Everywhere you turn, American businesses and whites are walking on eggshells, pandering to blacks. This is an undeniable truth that I am not allowed to say out loud, especially as a black person. Leftists will verbally beat the crap out of me on social media.

My 89 year old black dad suffered “real” hardcore racism. He paved the way for these black ungrateful domestic terrorists created by Leftists’ lies.

After spending months at sea as a young Merchant Marine, Dad and the other black seaman were super excited about their much needed shore leave when their ship landed in St Petersburg Florida. Dad and his fellow black shipmate were heartbroken upon hearing that they had to stay on the ship because of St Petersburg’s curfew for blacks. While his black shipmate went on a cussing rant, Dad said he cried.

When Dad was finally allowed to leave the ship, locals attempted to hang him just because he was black. Dad’s life was saved by white shipmates. I remember when Dad was in his 50s, he met for dinner with an old white friend. I later learned it was one of the sailors who saved Dad’s life.

In 1957, blacks were finally permitted to take the test to become a Baltimore City Firefighter. Dad passed the test. Working conditions at the firehouse were horrific for Dad. He was not permitted to use the same eating utensils or drink from the same coffee pot as the white firefighters. Despite humiliating working conditions, Dad won Firefighter of the Year two times. Dad’s weapons for defeating racism were his faith in God, prayer and striving for excellence. Over the years, Dad mentored numerous blacks into becoming firefighters. One of Dad’s young black recruits became Anne Arundel County Maryland’s first black Fire Chief.

In the 1960s, an exclusive white country club offered free membership to Baltimore City firefighters. The club was stunned when Dad and my two younger brothers showed up. Dad said all the whites got out of the swimming pool when he and my brothers got in. Dad kept frequenting the club and the white members eventually got over it.

Folks, I could go on and on with horrific tales of “real” racism blacks suffered back in the day. But praise God, this is a new day in America. While Leftists claim a majority of white Americans are racist, white America voted for the worst president in U.S. history http://bit.ly/1ZaTdzo two times because he was black. I know. I know. As a black person, blacks consider me disloyal to my race for telling the truth about Obama.

Is there racism in America? Absolutely, along with every other sin in the heart of man. Is there enough racism to stop anyone from achieving their American Dream? Absolutely not. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for everyone who chooses to go for it. Anything else promoted by fake news media, democrats and Leftist Hollywood is a lie. Pure and simple.

The loudest black voices trashing America are super wealthy Leftist blacks who could not have achieved their mega success without the enthusiastic support of white America. And yet, they are dissing our flag and national anthem. They are cheerleaders for the destruction of historical monuments and clamoring for us to throw out the U.S. Constitution. Shamefully, rich Leftist blacks are using urban blacks as pawns to further Leftists’ socialist/progressive agenda.

Colin Kaepernick is the pro football player who inspired youth across America to disrespect our flag. In essence, Kaepernick is also dissing the men who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our flag flying high.

In 2016, Kaepernick’s net worth was $22 million. Kaepernick signed a football contract for $126 million. After declining performances and him dissing our national anthem, Kaepernick was let go only receiving $39.4 million of his contract. http://read.bi/2xniq6h Oh how racist white America has screwed this poor black man. I am being sarcastic folks. I could call Kaepernick an ungrateful spoiled brat idiot. But Kaepernick is really a tragic example of how decades of Leftists spewing hatred for our country has infected the minds of our youths.

Please black conservatives, do not pander to Leftists’ lies about our country in an attempt to prove your loyalty to your blackness. Only by spreading the truth will we defeat Leftists’ insidious divisive evil and unite us as Americans.

Why States Can’t Prevent a Runaway Convention

By Publius Huldah

The danger of an Article V convention (which made James Madison “tremble”, caused Alexander Hamilton “dread”, and Chief Justice John Jay to say that another convention would impose an “extravagant risque”) is this: the delegates to the convention can run away: instead of proposing amendments to our existing Constitution, they can write a completely new Constitution with a new – and easier – mode of ratification. 1

The convention lobby implicitly acknowledges this danger when they say State Legislatures should   pass “unfaithful delegate” laws to control delegates. 2

Accordingly,  Wyoming passed a delegate law earlier this year which purports to empower the WY Legislature to “immediately recall” any delegate who makes an “unauthorized vote” at the convention, and to charge with a felony any delegate who fails to follow the WY Legislature’s instructions on what he may do at the convention.  The Texas delegate law purports to make “invalid” any “unauthorized vote” at the convention, and to empower the TX Legislature to recall any delegate who violates his instructions.  But Tennessee takes the cake with its delegate law:  Not only does the TN law purport to “void” votes cast at the convention by TN delegates which are outside the instructions or limits placed on the delegates by the TN Legislature – and then to prosecute such delegates for a felony; the TN law also asserts that if all TN delegates vote or “attempt to vote” outside the scope of the instructions or limits, TN’s previously filed applications for an Article V convention are to be treated as “having no effect at all”.  Other States have passed similar laws.

Such laws are contrary to our Founding Principles and are based on false assumptions.  Accordingly, they are unenforceable and ineffective.

1. Self-evident Rights and the Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence is the Fundamental Act of our Founding.3 It declares that all men are created equal; our rights are bestowed by God; our rights are unalienable; and the purpose of government is to secure the rights God gave us.

The Declaration is not “law” – it is higher than law, for it sets forth The Divine Standard which a Constitution – and the laws made pursuant to the Constitution must meet.

It also declares that a People have the self-evident right to throw off their government and set up a new one.  With that Principle firmly in mind, let’s look at our first amendments convention; and then, at State unfaithful delegate laws.

2. The federal convention of 1787

After our Revolution, we operated under our first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation.  But there were defects in the Articles, so on Feb. 21, 1787, the Continental Congress called a convention to be held in Philadelphia “for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation”.  The States also drafted instructions which purported to restrict delegates to proposing amendments.

But the delegates ignored their instructions and wrote a new Constitution [the one we now have].  In Federalist No. 40 (15th para), Madison invoked the Declaration of Independence and claimed, as justification for what they did,

“…the transcendent and precious right of the people to ‘abolish or alter their governments as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness,’…”

Yet State unfaithful delegate laws claim a power to divest The Representatives of the People – and to criminally prosecute them for exercising – what the Fundamental Act of our Founding declares is a “self-evident” right”!

3. And what if the delegates make their proceedings secret?

The State Legislators who vote for unfaithful delegate laws assume they will be able to know what is going on every minute of every day of the convention.

But Madison’s Journal of the Federal Convention of 1787 (where our present Constitution was drafted) shows that on May 29, 1787, the delegates voted to make their proceedings secret.

If delegates to a convention today vote to make the proceedings secret, the States won’t know what is going on – and can’t stop it. And if delegates vote by secret ballot, the States would NEVER know who did what.

You might think that with cell phones & cameras, it’s impossible to have a secret meeting. But the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which “induces” State Legislators to push the COS application for an Article V convention, is experienced in conducting secret meetings with State Legislators.  WATCH this 6.5 minute video of a Georgia TV crew which attempted to get into a meeting held at a Georgia hotel of ALEC and Georgia Legislators.

ALEC, which supports the COS application for an Article V convention, is funded by the Koch Brothers and other mega-corporations.  The Koch Brothers spend vast sums on State politicians (e.g., Texas), to get their support for the COS application.  Do the Kochs want an Article V convention so they can get a new Constitution which transforms us from a sovereign nation to a member state of the North American Union?  And if there is a convention, will armed guards keep the press out?  If delegates have been bought by the Kochs, will they tweet & text to the world what they are up to behind closed doors?

4. State Legislatures are “creatures” of their State Constitutions, and have no “competent
authority” to control The Representatives of The People at an Article V convention

Americans have forgotten a Principle which is the basis of free government: That political power originates with The People. 4   The People create governments by means of constitutions.  Since a government is the “creature” of its constitution, it can’t be superior to its Creator, The People.

This is why at the federal convention of 1787, where our present federal Constitution was drafted, our Framers understood that only The People were competent to ratify the new Constitution.  George Mason said on July 23, 1787,

“…The [State] Legislatures have no power to ratify it.  They are the mere creatures of the State Constitutions, and cannot be greater than their creators…”

Keeping that Principle firmly in mind, let’s look at Article V, US Constitution.

It provides that when two thirds of the State Legislatures (“mere creatures”) apply for it, Congress is to call a convention.  At that point, it is out of the State Legislatures’ hands – the bell has tolled, and State Legislatures can’t un-ring it.  Congress “calls” the convention (sets it up); but when it assembles, the delegates, as Sovereign Representatives of the People, are not answerable to State Legislatures (which are “mere creatures” of the State Constitution) or to Congress (which is a “mere creature” of the federal Constitution).  The delegates actually have the power to eliminate the federal and state governments – and that is precisely what the proposed Constitution for the Newstates of America does.

Delegates to a federal convention called by the federal Congress, to perform the federal function of altering or replacing our federal Constitution, are performing a federal function, not a State function.  The delegates don’t represent any government, federal or state. 5 They are supposed to represent The People; but in our corrupt time, they are more likely to represent the Koch Brothers (because they have the cash).

Dust off your copy of the federal Constitution we already have, read it and defend it.  It filled all Europe with “wonder and veneration”.  If you don’t do this, we will lose it.

Endnotes:

1 The proposed Constitution for the Newstates of America creates a totalitarian dictatorship.  The States are dissolved and replaced by regional governments answerable to the new national government.  It is ratified by a national referendum [national popular vote] (Art. XII, §1).  Other proposed Constitutions are also waiting in the wings for a convention.

2 The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) claims their model delegate bill “will eliminate the possibility of a ‘runaway convention’ the reason most often cited by scholars for their opposition to an Article V Convention.”

3 Dr. Alan Keyes spoke of this on the radio some years ago; and I knew he had just handed me the Key to understanding our Constitution.

4 See Federalist No. 22, last para (Hamilton).

5 The term, “convention of states”, is a misnomer which gives the false impression that States control the convention.  In Rob Natelson’s speech on Sep. 16, 2010 [now removed from free access] he said he will no longer call it a “constitutional convention”, but will henceforth say, “convention of states” (pg.1-2).

This Chart illustrates who has the power to do what at an Article V convention.

NAFTA Renegotiation – Why We Must Withdraw!

By: Armando Escalante | New Zeal

Cross-posted from Bear Witness Central

The Globalists are currently active in efforts to conquer the United States. They are operating on three primary fronts. One front is by revolutionaries using violent means on the streets. Another is by revolutionaries in office at all levels using policy to change the laws to surrender national sovereignty to a World State. The third is by revolutionaries using media and the education system to sell the idea of a 21st Century Global America to the People and the youth.

The American People are about to be broad-sided by the NAFTA renegotiation. It is important for Americans to recognize that these negotiations are not meant to fix the problems that arose from NAFTA originally, but instead to further expand and strengthen NAFTA. The new NAFTA envisioned and the objectives proposed by Robert Lighthizer will ultimately supersede Constitutional authority and commit the United States’ economic, social and political mechanisms to International interests hostile to those of the United States.

It is a surrender of power, authority and sovereignty to the United Nations since the governing authority of the mentioned mechanisms will be International Law. It also sets up the framework for a global currency, the silencing of free speech at many levels including avenues for persecution, the strengthening of sustainable development, compulsory family planning and population control, cross-border election fraud, unrestricted smuggling, loss of American jobs, mechanisms that would create bias against American-made products, destroy America’s energy sector, ban automobile driving, and more … all these governed strictly by international authority known to be hostile to American interests, with non-existent legal recourse under U.S. law. This is unacceptable and must be stopped. It is nothing more that a bone-fide North American Union, mirroring the European Union.

The following is an analysis of the Summary of Objectives for the NAFTA Renegotiation (July 17, 2017)” published by the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), headed by Robert Lighthizer, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. The Summary of Objectives for the NAFTA Renegotiation” details in summary form the objectives sought in the renegotiations. The obscure components in the proposed objectives are revealed in the following analysis.

This examination is comprised of two parts. The first part are definitions. The second are a few excerpts of key agenda items from the Summary of Objectives for the NAFTA Renegotiation” with a brief analysis accompanying each of the mentioned! Not all objectives are analyzed even though a threat exists with all.

To begin, it is important to note that one of the main strategies of global social planners is to mask malevolent “intent” in all calls for solutions to world social, economic and political ills. They understand that “intent” is difficult to prove, and they hide behind the “prove it” argument which essentially becomes a weapon to silence anyone who dares point it out. One of the ways they hide it is through double-speak in the redefining of commonly understood terms. The good news is that these social planners have always, decades in advance, declared their intent in all of their social schemes in their own journals, writings and essays. These sources are valid, reliable and objective sources to use for the exposure of intent. The examination of the USTR publicationrests on those declarations and the jargon that accompany them in masking the true agenda. For the sake of summary, only a fraction of these are mentioned. This analysis would become a volume if many were included.Many of the definitions are not masked, becoming a solid tool forvalidation.

As the social planners’ declarations and the social theory they stand on are compared to the list of objectives proposed by the Summary of Objectives for the NAFTA Renegotiation”, it becomes evident that there is no benevolent motive in favor of American interests but rather the undermining of those interests and continued erosion of America. In the USTR report’s cry, for the proposed NAFTA objectives to be implemented, international governance is required and called for!

It is also important to note that the stated goal of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the common thread in all the digital and hard-copy documentation of all International Affairs organizations in the World, are to usher in Global Governance, with the United Nations as the political and legal authority (Global Government) for the enforcement of this Global Governance system. In the vast majority of the CFR’s writings, publications, essays and case studies, what is found is subversive thought embedded in ideology, policy proposals and analysis. In other words, subversion through the promotion of so-called cutting edge ideas like soft power, strategic patience, multi-culturalism, sustainability and the such – whether overt or covert – designed for the destruction of western culture and Americanism. That same strategy is used for the amalgamation of nations, hence the obsolescence of nation states. The ideas and methods they propose for accomplishing their goal are mostly esoteric, which are inevitably not easily understood by ordinary men or women, whether educated, or of limited education, whether of strong or depraved moral character. This has given social planner heads power and cover to further their agenda in the shadows and under the concealment of deception.

Furthermore, one of the key structures in Global Government is the regionalization of world territory into parts, such as the North American Union, the Pacific Union and others. NAFTA is the building block for the formal framework of the North American Union as envisioned by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in their 2005 report Building A North American Community, which blueprints the amalgamation of the three North American states. As former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger put it in an article he wrote back in July 20, 1993, NAFTA “…is not a conventional trade agreement, but the architecture of a new international system.” He also wrote in that same article regarding NAFTA that “It will represent the most creative step toward a new world order taken by any group of countries since the end of the Cold War, and the first step toward the even larger vision of a free trade zone for the entire Western Hemisphere.” [11]

Seeing Is Believing

By: T F Stern | Self-Educated American

This morning while catching up on the latest news items via the internet my vision began playing tricks with me.  I found it difficult to focus on the printed words and recognized the onset of a migraine headache, more specifically, an ocular migraine manifestation.  The first time this happened several years ago it scared the bejebbers out of me, thinking it was some kind of stroke and that I’d wreck my truck before I could get off the freeway.

There are many variations in the way ocular migraines present themselves.  Each individual seems to have a different yet similar way of expressing what happens; but it only lasts a few minutes before normal vision returns, at least that’s been my experience.  It did give me a tremendous headache that took most of the morning to get rid of.

Then this afternoon while enjoying the Oldies internet radio station via the magic of a Smart TV and DVD player…I’m rambling, aren’t I?   Where was I…  sitting on the sofa with Leslie Gore singing in the background, I happened to look at the cabinet door which is part of the entertainment center.

Was it part of the original ocular migraine or were my eyes playing tricks and my imagination had kicked into another gear?   I thought I saw the image of Lord Voldemort, or as any true Harry Potter fan would remind me, “He who must not be named”.

The nice part of living in the digital age is that there’s always a camera within arm’s reach, it being part of the magic included in your cell phone.  I snapped a picture of what was embedded within the natural pattern of wood; no doubt about it, that’s Voldemort.

You can laugh all you want; but it looks as much like Harry Potter’s arch enemy as any image of Christ ever spotted on a piece of toast that’s made tabloid history.  This isn’t the first time I’ve captured an incredible or unbelievable image either; there’s the Tomato Fairy that got caught tending to my garden several years ago, that’s proof of sorts.

Having a headache and a great imagination made for an interesting day.  Now if only I could get rid of that tapping, as of some one gently rapping…   Gonna’ have to lay off reading Edgar Allan Poe until this headache goes away completely.

“…While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door—

“ ’Tis some visiter,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—

Only this and nothing more.”

Qasima Wideman

Durham, North Carolina member of the pro-North Korea, Iran, Russia, Workers World Party.

In February 2016, a workshop titled: “Disrupting Islamophobia” was presented to the members of Showing Up for Racial Justice in Durham. This workshop was facilitated by Qasima Wideman and Eva Panjwani of the Workers World Party and Manzoor Cheema of Muslims for Social Justice – a Muslim Liberation Theology organization.

In May 2016, Eva Panjwani and Qasima Wideman accepted an award on behalf of Muslims for Social Justice from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization front group Black Workers for Justice.

In 2016, Qasima Wideman also addressed a Left Forum in New York at a panel entitled, On the Frontlines: Queer People of Color Fighting for Socialism in the US South.

In the US South, a growing movement of queer people of color have been rising up against the reactionary, oppressive status quo. The recent struggles against North Carolina’s anti-LGBTQ laws, as well as the struggle against racist police terror and the movement against Donald Trump’s racist Presidential campaign, have all been flashpoints in the effort to shut down bigotry and oppression in the South. These activists have been on the frontline in the movements to fight back against oppression and to fight for a revolutionary solution, socialism.

Qasima Wideman spoke alongside Loan Tran, Workers World Party and Eva Panjwani, Queer Trans People of Color Coalition, Durham, NC.

From a Workers World Party Durham Branch, August 15, 2017 statement on arrest of our comrades: on the eve of the arrest of Takiyah Thompson.

From Qasima Wideman, one of several members of Workers World Party who were involved in the tear down of a Confederate statue in Durham on August 14:

“Confederate statues aren’t just hunks of metal and concrete. They represent the roots and history of a system of white supremacy that disenfranchises, murders, displaces and harms Black and Brown people up through today. If the people decide they want to remove such a statue, that should be their right. Love does not trump hate. It hasn’t taken down any Confederate statues or stopped any of the racist and fascist violence that people in Charlottesville, Charlotte, Ferguson, Baltimore and every where face every day. Only organized people’s power will take down white supremacy. Through racist drug laws and the prison industrial complex, cops do the paid work of white supremacy. The Trump regime has emboldened these racists.”

Takiyah Thompson, member of Workers World Party and student at N.C. Central University, who climbed to the top of the statue to tie a rope around its neck before the crowd tore it down:

“The people decided to take matters into our own hands and remove the statue. We are tired of waiting on politicians who could have voted to remove the white supremacist statues years ago, but they failed to act. So we acted.”
